No Holds Barred: Cameron Grimes VS Duke Hudson!

The Carolina Cash Money Caveman and The Smug are going to open this one with a hardcore throw down! Grimes brings out a trash can full of kendo sticks and other goodies from under the ring to set the stage. Will Grimes beat that bleached blonde possum of a wig off Hudson’s head? Or will Hudson finally break even for the losses he’s suffered at Grimes’ hands?

Grimes DECKS Hudson off the apron before the bell! Hudson blocks the penalty kick but Grimes puts the trash can over him! Grimes KICKS the can and knocks Hudson down! Grimes grins as he gets the trash can lid, and he SMACKS Hudson on the back! Fans fire up with Grimes as he swings and SMACKS Hudson again! Hudson sputters, Grimes puts him in the ring. Fans want that “One More Time!” and Grimes gets in, only for Hudson to throw body shots. Hudson SMACKS Grimes with the lid, then stomps away in the corner! Fans boo as Hudson lets off, but Grimes BOOTS back and QUEBRADAS! Cover, TWO!

Hudson bails out again, Grimes goes out after him. Grimes grabs Hudson’s “hair” and brings him around to SMACK him off the steps! Hudson shakes out the stars, Grimes gets the chair! Hudson kicks Grimes down first, then puts him back in the ring. Hudson throws the chair away, and the kendo stick, too. Grimes grab at the “hair” and fans want him to “Rip the Wig Off!” Hudson hotshots Grimes then adjusts the wig and headgear. Hudson slingshots and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Grimes flounders to the far side while Hudson adjusts the straps on his headgear. Grimes flops out of the ring and Hudson heads over that way.

Fans rally for Grimes, Hudson looks under the ring and brings out a chair. Grimes kicks the chair out of Hudson’s hands and fires off forearms! Hudson pokes Grimes in the eye! Fans boo, Grimes staggers around blindly, and Hudson reels him in to crucifix and RAZOR- NO! Grimes RANAS out and sends Hudson into Plexiglas! Fans fire up for “NXT! NXT!” as Grimes puts Hudson in the ring. Grimes has the chair now, stands it up and gets himself the trash can lid. Grimes THROWS the lid at Hudson, then LAUNCHES off the chair, into Hudson’s arm! URENAGE onto the chair!! Cover, TWO!! Grimes survives and Hudson seethes as NXT goes picture in picture.

Hudson keeps his headgear nice and tight while Grimes writhes. Hudson makes sure the wig is in place, too, and then he stops Grimes from getting a kendo stick. Hudson stomps Grimes down, throws him out, then paces while adjusting his headgear. Grimes slowly gets up, Hudson goes out after him, and Hudson bumps Grimes off the apron before an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Grimes flops down to the floor and writhes in pain while Hudson paces. Hudson mutters to himself as he goes around the way. The ref checks on Grimes but he’s okay to continue. Wait, Hudson brings out a POKER TABLE form under the ring!

Hudson gets the poker table into the ring, but Grimes drop toeholds him onto the chair! Hudson flounders, but he still gets Grimes for a BACKBREAKER! Hudson checks his nose, then sets up the poker table. Hudson stands the table up, drags Grimes over to the corner and hoists him up top. Hudson throws big forearms and Grimes sways as he manages to stay up top. Hudson climbs up after Grimes, Grimes throws body shots and Hudson hops down. Hudson BOPS Grimes right in the face! Hudson climbs again as NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally up as Grimes fights the superplex! Grimes headbutts Hudson away, then adjusts to LEAP over and CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Grimes throws KICKS into Hudson, but Hudson deflects to roll up, with tights! TWO!! Hudson can’t pull one over on Grimes, and Grimes victory rolls, TWO! Hudson flounders up, runs into a BOOT, and Grimes goes up, only for Hudson to trip him up! Grimes lands on his bitcoins and Hudson gets him for a crucifix carry. Grimes slips off and ROUNDHOUSES, then SUPERKICKS! Fans call out, “TO~ THE~ MOON~!” but Grimes runs into a POWERBOMB through the poker table!! Hudson drags Grimes off the wreckage to cover, TWO!!! Grimes survives and Hudson can’t believe it! Fans are thunderous for Grimes but Hudson goes out to look under the ring again.

Hudson finds the electric razor! He wants revenge for WarGames! He takes a seat by Grimes, sits him up and has a handful of hair! But Grimes BOOTS Hudson away! Then gets around to POISON-RANA!! Hudson takes a seat, CAVE-IN through the chair!! Cover, Grimes wins again!!

Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall

It doesn’t matter if it’s at the poker table or in the squared circle, Grimes has Hudson’s number! And now he has the WIG! Bald Hudson is real! Will Hudson ever live down this humiliation? Is Grimes on to bigger and better after taking Hudson to the cleaners?


Backstage interview with Cora Jade.

The winner at WarGames still has unfinished business with Dakota Kai. Cora is excited to be medically cleared, but then Dakota walks in and says, “This is what she does. She’s done it before with me and she’s doing it to you now.” Dakota claims Raquel is latching on to Cora to stay relevant. Cora does the work, Raquel gets the glory. Maybe they’ll become a tag team and win the Dusty Cup! Cora says, “Thanks, mom, but I don’t need the advice.” Cora says after tonight, she’ll be one step closer to facing Mandy Rose for the title. M-Mom?! Dakota has a bit of a freak out, but will she be ready to take on the young and hungry #GenerationJade?


Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen get ready for the double date.

Brooks is ready! They’re going to a country concert and they have a fine ass truck. Where’re the girls? Kacy & Kayden roll up in an even better truck! The four go to the country music fest, do some square dancing in the field, and even some slow dancing for a minute. The boys are speechless, will there be a second date in their future?


Grayson Waller goes to the ring.

Fans boo the 21st Century Success Story, they definitely did not like what he did last week. Fans still call him an A-Hole for that attack on Johnny Wrestling. Waller gets a mic and says, “I love it. I love it! A wise man once said, ‘You can never fail if you bet on yourself.’ What a beautiful speech. I nearly had a tear in my eye last week. But that wise man overstayed his welcome!” Gargano wants to talk about his wife and his future, and he for whatever reason thanked all the fans! Like the fans have done anything for anyone! Last week, Waller, by himself, did what he said he was gonna do! He had all the views! He was trending all over! But that’s what happens when you bet on yourself.

Waller decides he’ll shut up after all, because he wants to watch the footage. Waller’s Instagram video had him rubbing his own attack in everyone’s face. Waller gets chills watching it back. Oh, no one else liked that? Well let’s be realistic. Last week, Waller cemented himself as THE NXT superstar! He went from jumping off the cage to winning WarGames to ending the career of a legend! Then Waller partied with the biggest celebrities in the world! What’d fans do for the weekend? Complained about someone more successful than them! But Waller is a good guy, he’ll give the fans some clout! He shows off all sorts of tweets. Even Wade Barrett called Waller a POS.

But here’s some bad news, Barrett! This ain’t 2010! He could care less what Barrett thinks. And Vic Joseph… Fans chant for them to “Kick His Ass!” but Waller says he did that to Vic’s best friend, in front of him, and Vic didn’t do a single thing! Remember that. It shows what kind of man you are, Vic. Waller says he doesn’t need friends, family or fans! “The only thing that I need to go to the top of this industry is Grayson Waller.” Waller drops the mic and swaggers his way out.


Malcolm Bivens speaks.

“Diamond Mine is all about the big money matches. And it doesn’t get much bigger than you, Bron Breakker. Yeah, I know you are the breakout superstar, but you are not the workhorse of NXT, and you certainly not THE champion of NXT. That distinction belongs to Roderick Strong. And I cannot wait for him to put you in your place.” Strong adds on that Diamond Mine will divide and conquer. Ivy Nile will handle her business, the Creed Brothers will handle their business, and Strong will handle Bron all by himself. Is Nile ready? Hell yeah! She’s gonna bust some skulls! Even her fist bump is strong! Will Diamond Mine’s personal titan steamroll another superstar?


NXT presents an all new Lashing Out.

Lash Legend welcomes us back, and she doesn’t have just one but TWO special guests tonight! It’s Jacket Time, Kushida & Ikemen Jiro! But then there’s also a random sighting of snoozy Karen Q. Anyway, Jiro & Kushida are big fans of Lash, so they’re happy to be here. She says they’re always dressed to impress. But what is the secret? #STYLESTRONG! Oh, she likes the sound of that. She’s got some Style Strong, too! But what we really want to know is what’s going on with them and Grizzled Young Veterans. Very sensitive operation. GYV attacked them first, but Jacket Time is not to be taken lightly.

Kushida calls out GYV in Japanese, “Just like Grayson Waller, you have NO respect for the ring!” Jiro agrees, and also says in Japanese, “We are the ultimate team! We always have smiles on our faces! Tonight, we will wipe the floor with yours!” Lash is shocked by such fire, but doesn’t really understand what they said. It’s jacket time! Okay! Well that’s all the time they have. Kushida & Jiro, they are Lash’s heroes, but will they take the fight to Zack Gibson & James Drake? Or will GYV find another cheeky way to cheat and win?


Ivy Nile w/ Malcolm Bivens VS Amari Miller!

Diamond Mine has forged Ivy Nile into a solid steel weapon, is she about to break the spirit of St. Louis?

The bell rings and fans sing, “Ivy’s gonna kill~ you!” Ivy headlocks, hits a takeover and grinds Amari down. Amari headscissors, pushes up, thrashes Ivy around, but Ivy endures to move around and headstand out! Fans cheer that and Bivens is very happy to see it. They tie up, Ivy waistlocks and throws Amari down to then facelock. Amari slips out and fans cheer the exchange again. They tie up, Ivy trips Amari but Amari slips away again. They tie up, Amari wrenches but Ivy blocks the whip. Amari steps over but Ivy slips out to springboard and DECK Amari! Ivy bumps Amari off buckles, hops up the corner and has a necklock! Ivy uses Amari as a weight for her triceps workout!

The ref counts, Ivy lets Amari down and CLOBBERS her! Ivy does push-ups on Amari’s back, she lets off as the ref counts 4. Ivy stalks Amari, drags her up and snap suplexes! Fans fire up as Ivy scoops but Amari slips out. Amari rolls up, TWO but Amari gets a ghost pin! TWO, roll to a sunset flip! TWO, and Ivy headbutts low! Ivy rushes in but Amari turns it to a backslide! Ivy rolls off, Amari CLUBS her back! And CHOPS her low! Amari throws forearms, HEEL KICKS then snapmares too mule kick Ivy down! Fans rally up, Amari basement dropkicks Ivy down! Cover, ONE!! Amari fires up, but Ivy ducks the heel kick and comes back to SPINEBUSTER!

Ivy gets to a corner, runs back out and dropkicks Amari down! Ivy then O’Conner Rolls, rolls through to the DRAGON SLEEPER! Amari taps, Ivy wins!!

Winner: Ivy Nile, by submission

Ivy crushes another opponent! Will this Diamond Mine product soon strike gold?


Backstage interview with Xyon Quinn.

A tough loss to Santos Escobar, but what does he think Elektra Lopez was pulling last week? It all worked in Escobar’s favor, so it doesn’t really matter what her intentions were. Quinn tells Lopez that now that he knows the rules of the game, game on. Robert Stone is also taking notes. He won’t let this go back to Vic and Wade, though! He is sick of the disrespect from everyone in NXT! “Moving forward, Robert Stone is going to be taken serious!” Von Wagner barges in and says last week was just the first body to break. This week, it continues! He’ll smash and beat whoever into the ground. Why? Because he can! If you have a problem with that, say it to his face. Stone stays quiet.


Joe Gacy talks with Harland.

“You have waited so long for this. This is your time. Don’t be afraid to be who you are.” Does that mean what it sounds like? Who will be Harland’s first victim in the ring?


Shaman Riddle speaks with MSK.

He knows they’ve come a long way in their journey, but Shaman Bro needs to know what else is in the bag. Scissors, glasses, batteries, and one ear bud? Is that all? Dig deeper. Riddle goes ALL the way in, and brings out a baseball bat! Wow, where’d they get that? And then… A safety cone! Bro! And Nash Carter’s favorite, the Thuganomics spinner belt from when John Cena was US Champion! But all this stuff, that’s just clutter in their lives. If they want to be tag team champions again, they gotta focus on one thing and one thing only: regaining those titles. Well, how do they clear their minds and learn to let go? Just give Riddle one second. Riddle reaches back in and…

He brings out a scooter!? How’d that get in there? To find what you’re really looking for, bros, you gotta dig deep. Like, really deep. Carter and Lee bring out a scooter for each of them, and these stallions ride! Will the Way of the Bro lead MSK back to the NXT Tag Team Championships?


Harland w/ Joe Gacy VS Guru Raaj!

It’s hard to be sure what to make of Harland with that same stoic stony expression. The bell rings, he circles with Raaj, they tie up and Harland SLAMS Raaj down! And then dribbles him off the mat! And then digs Raaj’s face into the mat while grinding his forearm into Raaj’s head! Harland lets off to drag Raaj up. Raaj throws body shots, but Harland KNEES low, CLUBS then back suplex POWERSLAMS! Cover, Harland wins!

Winner: Harland, by pinfall

A fast win that probably would’ve been even faster if Harland didn’t toy with Raaj. Gacy asks if Harland feels better. Harland shakes his head, so Gacy tells him to be happy. Harland dribbles Raaj off the mat again! Refs and security rush out to stop this, but only Gacy gets Harland to spare Raaj. Gacy leads the way out, will he and Harland lead a path of destruction through NXT?


LA Knight arrives.

He’s had his own issues with Waller, but he isn’t going to have NXT Media ask about him. He’s gonna talk to ya! “Talking about the guy who did one halfway cool move at WarGames, with help, and all of a sudden, he thinks he’s special.” Then he gets all butthurt just cuz some fine chickadee was feeling the vibe of one LA Knight, YEAH. So what does he do? He throws a hissy fit like the incel he is! So someone go find Waller, tell him to go find Knight if Knight doesn’t find his ass first, YEAH!


NXT watches security ushering Harland and Gacy out.

They don’t want “the freak” causing any more problems. But that word triggers Harland and he TOSSES THE Brian Kendrick down the stairs!! OH NO! BRIAN! Is he okay?! Will Harland and Gacy suffer the consequences for this?


Cora Jade VS Dakota Kai!

Mandy Rose is waiting for Cora as she makes her entrance, and joins commentary to keep a close eye on her. Will Cora be able to focus on #CobraKai with the NXT Women’s Champion nearby?

NXT returns as Dakota makes her entrance. The bell rings, the two rush each other and Dakota BOOTS Cora down! Dakota clubs away on Cora, whips her to a corner but Cora goes up and over and uppercuts back! Fans fire up as Cora whips Dakota, but Dakota reverses. Cora wrenches and whips to then follow and tilt-o-whirl headscissor Dakota down! Cora dropkicks Dakota down, then gets around to backslide! TWO, Cora kicks Dakota down! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel as Cora goes to a corner. Cora climbs up slowly, Dakota BOOTS her down! Dakota then climbs up, but Cora bumps Dakota off buckles!

Cora drags Dakota up but Dakota YANKS Cora into the crossbars! Cora clutches the bad arm, and she hops down off the apron. Dakota smirks as she aims from the other side, and she PENALTY KICKS Cora! Mandy sarcastically cringes seeing that, and Dakota covers, TWO! Dakota clamps onto Cora’s arm and forces it into the top wristlock! Cora endures, fans rally up, but Dakota throws Cora down! Cover, TWO! Dakota CLUBS Cora on the bad arm, steps over and JAMS the arm! Mandy says Cora doesn’t have nearly enough experience to measure up to her. Dakota clamps onto the arm, grinds it down, but Cora fights. Dakota turns Cora over to PULL the arm!

Cora bridges to try and relieve pressure but Dakota keeps pulling! Dakota shifts to a short arm scissor! Cora fights, Dakota laughs, Cora powers to a cover, TWO! Cora is free, she ducks and dodges to fire forearms with the good arm! Dakota claws the bad arm! Dakota whips Cora to a corner, Dakota runs around the world but Cora dodges the boot and dumps Dakota out! Mandy disrespects Cora’s skateboarding, but Cora gets her bad arm moving. Dakota gets in, Cora rallies with lariats and elbows! Cora runs, Dakota dodges but Cora RANAS! Cora fires up, runs into the corner, SHINING WIZARD! Cora shoves Dakota down, then climbs up and missile dropkicks! Cover, TWO!

Cora drags Dakota up but Dakota SCORPION KICKS, and then hits a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Dakota is losing her cool as Cora is proving her toughness! Dakota runs corner to corner, and BOOTS Cora down! Then side to side, BOOT WASH! Cover, TWO!! Cora is still in this and Dakota is beside herself. Dakota catches Cora for a TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Mandy is not impressed, but that could just be her arrogance. Dakota goes out, looks under the ring, and brings out THE SHOVEL! She’s gonna bury Cora! The ref stops that, then Cora rolls Dakota up! Cora wins!!

Winner: Cora Jade, by pinfall

Mandy says Cora keeps getting lucky, but then Dakota BOOTS Cora down! Dakota gets her shovel back, but here comes Raquel! Raquel dodges and BOOTS Dakota! Dakota bails out but Raquel chases after to club away on Dakota! They go out the back, but here comes the rest of Toxic Attraction! Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne strut out to the ring as Mandy says this is what real women look like. But it’s MANDY who attacks first, and with her belt! She may look like a real woman, but she plays things like a real snake as she hits an ARMBAR DDT on Cora’s bad shoulder! Cora writhes in pain, but is this all a sign that Toxic Attraction fears #GenerationJade?


Waller brags backstage.

He looked good out there, didn’t he? He checks his phone, and then Tiffany Stratton walks up to say, “My daddy says you’re a terrible person.” Io Shirai insults Waller in Japanese! He takes a seat to listen to her vent. “I guess she likes me.” Waller is a bit delusional, but will Knight find him and slap some sense into him?


Raquel Gonzalez is going after Dakota Kai in the parking lot!

Refs and security do what they can to keep Raquel and her kendo stick from hitting Dakota! Dakota throws a chair, even! What will it take to put the past in the past for these two?


Tony D’Angelo VS Andre Chase!

NXT’s resident Wise Guy shows off the mouthpiece he took from Pete Dunne as he goes to the ring. Will he look to take something from Andre Chase to add to the collection? Or will this be a #TeachableMoment courtesy of Professor Chase?

NXT returns and Chase has made his entrance. The bell rings, Chase talks trash to Tony and bops him with the papers. Tony DECKS Chase, then gets around to waistlock and SLAM Chase down! Tony holds onto the waistlock, drags Chase up but Chase gets ropes. The ref counts, Tony lets off and Chase back elbows! Chase brings Tony to a corner but Tony bumps him off buckles! And then more buckles! And then again and again in the corner closest to the Chase U student section! Tony lets off on Chase, then gets him for a Belly2Belly! Chase bails out, Tony drags him up to the apron and hip tosses him back in!

Chase crawls to ropes, Tony talks trash and whips him to ropes. Chase reverses to headlock, then he throws Tony down by his hair! The students advise Chase on the next play, and Chase hits a NECKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Chase rains down fists, fans boo but the Chase U students cheers. Chase has them spell out his name as he stomps Tony! “C! H! A! S! E! U!” Chase U is going wild but Tony throws body shots! Tony whips but Chase gets him for a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Chase clamps on a chinlock and he thrashes Tony around. Tony endures, the CWC is on his side and he fights up. Tony moves around, and he uses momentum to throw Chase into a corner!

Tony gets Chase for a BACK DROP! Tony kicks low, pulls Chase’s sweater over his head and has himself a hockey fight! Then a HALF HATCH SUPLEX! Fans fire up and Tony TACKLES Chase! Tony says he’s doneski! NORTHERN LIGHTS and roll through, FISHERMAN SCREW! Cover, Tony wins!

Winner: Tony D’Angelo, by pinfall

Tony, learn something from Chase? Forgedaboutit! Tony knows how to win, and that’s what matters! Tony gets a mic to say, “In the words of my immortal paizon, Tony Bennett, Tony D’s got the world on a string.” And ever since he’s gotten here, he’s backed up everything he said he’d do! He took care of Chase, so he’s head of the class now. And he said he’d smack the tea ‘n’ crumpet goof, Pete Dunne, right in the mouth- Here comes Pete Dunne! The Bruiserweight has a mic, and he tells Tony that he’s done a lot of talking for a geezer with no track record. Dunne is gonna get in the ring, we’ll see if Tony holds that same energy face to face.

Tony says whoa! Dunne’s got quite the mouth on him. Dunne’s got a face only a mother would love. But he’s missing something, huh? Look over there. There’s the mouthpiece. Bet Dunne wants that back, right? Dunne wants to fight, huh? Well he isn’t here to talk! Tony says he has business, but next week they can figure it out. Until then, Tony’s gotta talk to a guy about some things. But he tries a sucker punch! Dunne gets the arm and BENDS The fingers! And SNAPS ’em! Tony bails out, and they both look to the corner! Dunne gets there first and Tony backs off. Dunne STOMPS the box open and has his mouthpiece!


Waller walks into the locker room.

Bron Breakker is getting warmed up. Waller wants to fist bump over WarGames. But Bron says Waller isn’t welcome here. The other guys agree. Alright, fine. Waller takes his things, but a real superstar has his own room anyway! Waller is trying to spin being ostracized, will he find it’s lonely at the top?


WWE Medical checks on THE Brian Kendrick.

He needs a neck brace, but who knows what the extent of the damage is after Harland threw him down those stairs.

It was practically win by knockout! Is Boa’s power only growing with every moment?


Raquel says this needs to end!

“I look back on our friendship as a positive. But the reality is, I need to end you, Dakota!” Her friend, her enemy! They’ll finish this how it all started: in a STREET FIGHT! Will Dakota take Raquel up on that challenge?


NXT Media catches up with Waller.

It seems no one likes him anymore, but he says that’s the “Grayson Waller Effect.” Wait, is he leaving with Tiffany Stratton in LA Knight’s car? What did Knight say last week about views? Knight’s gonna love this view! Waller pulls away, and Knight is down and out on the ground! What won’t Waller do to be the most infamous man in NXT?


Jacket Time VS Grizzled Young Veterans!

Ikemen Jiro & Kushida say it’s time! But will they SSSSOOOON be recognized as the duo that Zack Gibson & James Drake cheated out of a win?

NXT returns and GYV are in the ring. The teams sort out, Kushida starts against Mr. Mayhem. Drake avoids the takedowns, gets a facelock, but Kushida turns it around on him.

Bivens talks up Strong.

Bivens says Strong is THE champion in NXT and he’ll teach Bron a lesson. But then Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams walk over. They see Strong is a champion in NXT, but not THE A CHAMPION. Bivens says these two might need something. There’s a picture as drawn by Lumis of Trick running away! Melo says not to worry about that. They head out, but clearly Lumis wants to #WhoopThatTrick! Will the Tortured Artist make Trick his next masterpiece?


Bron Breakker VS Roderick Strong w/ Malcolm Bivens!

The “Big Booty Nephew” still wants after “Daddy Ciampa” and THE NXT Championship, but he’s more than willing to sharpen his skills against the NXT Cruiserweight Champion. Will Bron be able to break through Diamond Mine’s fearless leader? Or will Strong be the one breaking Bron with all those backbreakers?

The bell rings, they circle, and Strong goes for a leg. Bron throws him right off! Strong gets up, he and Bron circle and Strong avoids Bron’s shoot in for the leg. Bron laughs it off, they go again. Strong gets a leg, trips Bron and has a facelock. Bron fights as Strong mocks the barking. Bron powers up to toss Strong away, and Strong sees Melo & Trick are up in the perch to watch this. Bron ignores those guys, but Strong knees him low. Strong headlocks, Bron powers out and runs Strong over! Bron runs, gator rolls to get Strong up for a stalling suplex! Bron holds Strong for about 12 before the SLAM! Bron kips up and fans bark as he goes out after Strong.

Strong RAMS Bron into the desk, then DESK BACK SUPLEXES Bron down! Strong stares Melo down as NXT goes picture in picture.

Bron whips Strong to ropes and FRANKENSTEINERS! Fans rally up, Bron Belly2Belly suplexes! Cover, TWO!! Strong survives, but Bron drags Strong up in a deadlift! Strong slips out, Bron RAMS him into a corner! Bron RAMS his shoulder in more, then brings Strong out.

Strong elbows Bron hard, then CHOPS him against ropes! And CHOPS him again! Strong starts unleashing the side to side forearms, and then the OLYMPIC SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Bron survives and Strong grows frustrated. Strong drags Bron up, brings him around to a corner and throws forearms. Strong hoists Bron up top, climbs up to join him, and throws body shots. Strong gets Bron on the very top, for a SUPERPLEX! And then roll through to TIGER DRIVER!! High stack, TWO!!? Bron survives and Bivens is furious but the fans are loving “NXT! NXT!” Strong drags Bron up, suplexes, but Bron blocks to TOSS Strong! “This is Awesome!” as Strong BOOTS and ENZIGURIS!

Bron staggers, but he catches the knee for a POWERSLAM! Bron brings down the straps and fans bark! Bron gets Strong up, trophy lifts, and POWERSLAMS!! Cover, Bron wins!!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall

Bron just pinned a former NXT Tag Team, North American and current Cruiserweight Champion! Is this proof that Bron But then Ciampa shows up outta nowhere to get Bron in the ropes! WILLOW’S BELL! Ciampa says Bron won the battle at WarGames. The title is the war! “Welcome back to the deep end. Just remember, Bron. Sharks swim here.” Ciampa gives Bron a kiss goodnight, will Goldie be staying with daddy?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of NXT here, and Waller is definitely top Heel now. They even kayfabed that he has heat with the locker room! And while I was hoping we’d shift gears for a moment and have Ciampa or Lumis go after Waller, all the stories seem to be continuing as they are. Waller goes after Knight to jack his car and his date, so they’ll surely have a grudge match soon. Lumis is after Trick, and surely will go after Melo after that for a North American Championship match. And Melo is still focusing on Strong just because Bivens says Strong is THE champion in NXT. Strong puts Bron over for Ciampa to go after him to end the night, we’re definitely getting another NXT Championship match there.

I really liked that they opened with the No Holds Barred match. Grimes and Hudson had time to do all sorts of stuff, and I’m a little surprised Grimes won again. Grimes has completely swept Hudson, which seems a bit of a shame for the story, or at least for Hudson, but Grimes is a fan favorite so no one is complaining. We got some pretty quick matches to follow, though, with Nile crushing Amari and Harland mauling Raaj. What was great was Harland “injuring” THE Brian Kendrick, because they filmed it so perfectly. I almost want THE Brian Kendrick to have one more match against Harland to help show more of Harland’s in-ring skill.

Great stuff out of the tag division, with a fairly funny promo from Riddle and MSK and the classic “bottomless bag” trick. This is the kind of stuff I figured they’d do with Riddle and MSK, and I can’t wait to see what more we get. Briggs & Brooks had an okay concert date vignette with Kacy & Kayden, but NXT 2.0 needs to dial it back on the dating stuff. Let Briggs & Brooks be the good ol’ boys with their redneck lifestyles, then have them kick ass in the ring. Von Wagner’s fired up, too, I almost feel like he, Briggs & Brooks should be a trio because they’re all big, strong outdoorsy types. They can even take on El Legado all at once.

Speaking of, good promo from Quinn to say this is just the beginning with Legado. Jacket Time VS GYV was a good match, and I find it interesting that the Creed Brothers helped out Kushida & Jiro to stick it to Gibson & Drake. The NXT Tag Division is getting full but I don’t know about stacked like in the past. NXT 2.0 needs to take a week to give matches the same breathing room we used to see in 1.0. Kushida & Jiro VS GYV could have been even better if it was given more time. At the very least, there should be a big tag team match to determine contenders for Imperium while MSK is on their journey with Riddle. Maybe another of those Fatal 4 Ways like we got a month or so ago.

We got great story blending from the women’s division, with Cora getting a great win over Dakota Kai while Mandy was talking trash on commentary. I knew Mandy would be the one to attack while Gigi & Jacy distracted Cora, too. That is definitely a nod to Cora getting her title match for New Year’s Evil. As for Raquel and Dakota, their Street Fight next week is going to be wild stuff, can’t wait to see it.

My Score: 8.6/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?


Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away! Truth flounders to his corner, Turbo tags in, and Turbo steps up to Bill. Jericho isn’t even taking this match seriously, he’s checking his phone! Bill knees Turbo low, CLUBS him down, but Truth tags back in. Truth runs and leaps, but Bill catches him! Bill grins, gives a thumbs up, then SLAMS Truth down! Bill says the fans know what’s up. But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy. Bill puts Turbo in a corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! And he fires off haymaker after haymaker! Bill laughs as he stomps a mudhole into Turbo! The ref counts but Bill keeps going! Bill lets off, laughs some more, and Jericho says look out. Truth CHOPS Bill, but then he begs for forgiveness.

Bill powers Truth to a corner with one hand! Then he runs to SPLASH Turbo! SPLASH for Truth, SPLASH for Turbo! BOOT for Truth, and then Bill choke grips Turbo. SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! And then he tags Jericho! Jericho smirks and waves to the fans. “Hi, guys~!” Cover, Jericho & Bill win!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own. Butcher RAMS Suzuki into a corner, the ref counts, but Butcher lets off at 4. Suzuki eggs Butcher on but Butcher pie faces Suzuki. Butcher dares Suzuki to bring it, so Suzuki fires off fast hands and forearms! Suzuki ROCKS Butcher in the corner, then goes corner to corner, so he can BOOT! Butcher staggers, Suzuki snapmares him, then runs to PENALTY- NO! Butcher blocks the kick! Butcher CLUBS the leg, then trips Suzuki.

Butcher has a standing toehold as he traps one of Suzuki’s legs. Suzuki just eggs Butcher on! Butcher stomps the leg, drops an elbow on it, then he drags Suzuki up. Butcher CLUBS Suzuki, but Suzuki just snarls. Butcher CHOPS, but Suzuki isn’t impressed. Butcher CHOPS again, Suzuki eggs him on, so Butcher fires more CHOPS! Suzuki just laughs! Butcher ROCKS Suzuki, kicks low, then kicks again. Butcher reels Suzuki in to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! The fans rally for Suzuki and he fires body shots on Butcher. Suzuki ROCKS Butcher, but Butcher HEADBUTTS! Butcher vows to break Suzuki’s back!

Butcher half nelsons, but Suzuki slips around to waistlock. Butcher elbows free, runs, but Suzuki follows, drop steps to get around, and has the SLEEPER! Suzuki wrangles Butcher, squeezes tight, but Butcher endures. Suzuki spins Butcher around and reels him in, and the fans fire up for the Gotch Lift! Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?


The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?


Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?


Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?


BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?


The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

The teams sort out and Fenix starts against Brother Zay. The fans rally, Zay offers a handshake, and Fenix takes it. But then Fenix ROCKS Zay! Zay ROCKS Fenix back, they fire forearms, and Zay fires forearms again and again. Zay whips, Fenix springboards to CROSSBODY! Fenix kicks, SOBATS, KICKS a leg, then kicks again, but Zay blocks! Zay steps over, GAMANGIRI! Zay runs, but Fenix pops him up, only for Zay to RANA! Zay whips, Fenix reverses but Zay reverses back.

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back! But Fenix fights the suplex, wrenches out, and KICKS Zay!

Fenix reels Zay in, but then Zay wrenches out. Zay reels Fenix back in, but Fenix wrenches out to mule kick. Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” but Zay wrenches out to ROCK Fenix! Zay eggs Fenix on, pie faces, and he fires a forearm! Fenix fires back, they go back and forth, and the fans rally up. Fenix and Zay huff ‘n’ puff, and they keep throwing shots! Zay gets the edge, but Fenix returns in kind! Rampage returns to single picture as they both throw forearms at the same time, again and again! It is fast and furious and the fans love it! Penta runs in just to BLAST Quen! The Lucha Bros mug Zay, double whip, but Quen is there for some SILLY STRONG!

Penta flounders out, Quen HOTSHOTS Fenix! Zay brings Fenix around, Quen goes up, AFTER PARTY STOMPS! Quen goes up and up to ESCALARA SENTON onto Penta! Zay SWANTON BOMBS Fenix! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and shocks Zay! The fans rally up and Zay brings Fenix up. Tag to Quen, and Private Party puts Fenix up top. Quen runs up, GIN- NO, Fenix holds onto the corner and Quen tumbles! Penta also waistlocks Zay but Zay fights free with elbows. Penta shoves Zay so that Fenix can tightrope walk PENALTY KICK! Then Penta SLINGBLADES Zay down! Quen gets in, he gets a SLINGBLADE, too!

The fans fire up for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta brings Quen in but Quen slips free and shoves Penta into Fenix! Fenix lands on his firebird and Quen helps Zay up. GIN & JUICE!! Cover, but Penta returns to break it and hit a DESTROYER on Zay!! Quen is shocked while Little Rock is thunderous! “This is Awesome!” as “A E DUB!” gives us this main event.

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (7/19/24)

Cody Rhodes won’t back down!



The American Nightmare is seeing red!

After last week’s brutal attack by The Bloodline, Cody Rhodes will open tonight’s SmackDown to show he is not intimidated by their actions!


  • Andrade VS Carmelo Hayes; Andrade wins.
  • Bianca Belair w/ Jade Cargill VS Chelsea Green w/ Piper Niven; Bianca wins.
  • Mia Yim VS Tiffany Stratton w/ Nia Jax; Mia wins.
  • Cody Rhodes & Kevin Owens VS A-Town Down Under; Cody & Kevin win.


Cody Rhodes is here!

Omaha, Nebraska fires up as The American Nightmare makes his way out. The fans sing along with the song, “WHOA~ OH~!” The pyro goes off, Cody high-fives fans and even gives some autographs as he continues down the ramp. Cody fist-bumps Omaha’s own Terence Crawford, who is preparing for his own boxing championship defense, and then Cody steps into the ring. The fans chant Cody’s name while he grabs a mic. “So, Omaha! What do we wanna talk about? Let’s talk about Randy Orton.” Cody has the distinction and honor of calling Randy Orton a friend. Before that, Randy was a mentor.

Randy chose Cody when he didn’t have to, when he was told to discard Cody. Cody would not be here as Undisputed WWE Champion without Randy Orton. The fans cheer that, and even chant for “Randy! Randy!” Cody says, “So imagine the guilt when a man who has a lovely wife, a beautiful family, five children, a man who came back from what could’ve been a career ending injury and had spinal fusion surgery, imagine my guilt watching this Bloodline put Randy Orton through a table.” The fans boo, and Cody says family is not always blood. How’s the song go? Wrestling has more than one royal family. Randy is Cody’s family. Randy is Cody’s brother!

And if Randy were here, he wouldn’t want Cody to wax poetic or talk about guilt and shame. The difference between the two is the difference of being bad and doing something bad. Cody will instead look directly into the camera, and he will talk right to the man responsible: Solo Sikoa. The fans boo that name. Cody looked Solo in the eyes before WrestleMania 39 even, and told him, “You are not ready.” Then Solo paid Cody back in kind by costing him the title he has now, the title they will fight for in the main event of SummerSlam.

“Solo, with everything you have done trying to erase your time as The Enforcer–that’s a cute nickname, by the way–and instead become the Tribal Chief, how does it feel knowing that I am still standing here in this ring, still champion, and that you are still not-” A-Town Down Under interrupts? The fans boo as Austin Theory & Grayson Waller strut out here, and Theory starts by saying, “Cody, Cody Rhodes. Cody, you’re spending a lot of time talking about The Bloodline, but because of you, Jacob Fatu from The Bloodline attacked me last week.” Look at his face! It’s swollen! Cody thought that was from his own partner hitting him in the face.

Waller says nice try, Cody, trying to deflect from how Cody can’t take responsibility for his own actions. Theory got attacked last week was because of Cody. And the reason Cody’s mentor, hero and friend, Randy Orton, the reason Cody won the title, the reason Randy got hurt is because of Cody. The fans boo but ATDU step into the ring. But Cody fires off on tehm first! The fans fire up but he still gets mugged 2v1! The fans boo again as Theory & Waller stomp Cody down. Waller TOSSES Cody out, but Terence says here, have his chair! Cody uses that chair to JAM Waller and SMACK him down!

Then Cody tosses the chair to Theory so he can DISASTER KICK it into Theory’s face! ATDU bails out and the fans fire up! Cody has chair and championship, will he need both of those to thwart The Bloodline?


Carmelo Hayes gets a quick trim.

He has his guy tidy up the edges, and then says there won’t be chants or gimmick BS. He tells Andrade that it’ll be them, “two hoopers,” one on one, going hard in the paint, and the world will be waiting to see who misses first. And it won’t be H1M. Melo heads out, but will he dunk on Andrade? Or will El Idolo show this isn’t Melo’s game, it’s his?


Cody finds Nick Aldis backstage.

Cody says it is a 100% freebie, he wants a match with A-Town Down Under. Aldis says he can do that, but he’ll need a tag team partner. Cody says no, he needs to send a message to The Bloodline. Aldis gets that, but hey, if he sends the WWE Champion out into a Handicap Match, Aldis will have to answer to the Board of Directors. So respectfully, Cody has until the end of tonight to find a partner. The American Nightmare has his mission, will he find someone who wants to take the fight to the former tag team champions?


Andrade VS Carmelo Hayes!

El Idolo has been NXT Champion, just like H1M, but he’s also been WWE United States Champion and is currently WWE Speed Champion. Will Andrade make Melo respect him? Or will no one humble Melo when he hits Nothing But Net?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and Andrade headlocks. Melo powers up and out but Andrade runs him over. Things keep moving, Melo hurdles then Andrade leaps over. Melo rolls off Andrade’s back, comes back, and tilt-o-whirl RANAS, only for Andrade to handspring through! Melo runs up again, sunset flips, ONE!! Melo grabs at legs but Andrade boots him away. Andrade then trips Melo, steps through, but Melo kicks him away. The fans cheer the standoff while Melo frowns. Andrade runs but he turns Melo’s dropdown into a rolling sunset, TWO! Melo jackknife bridges, TWO!

Both men stand, both men ROCK each other with forearms, then the forearms start flying! Andrade runs but Melo ROCKS him! Melo runs but Andrade BOOTS him! Andrade steadies himself before he runs, but then Melo DROPKICKS him! Melo runs, but Andrade follows! Andrade jumps up onto the ropes with Melo! Melo slips away to trip Andrade up! Andrade is stuck in ropes, Melo still hits a FADE AWAY JUMPER! The fans fire up for that leg drop, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Andrade endures an armlock. The fans rally, Andrade fights up, and he throws body shots. Melo holds onto the armlock, but Andrade fires more shots! Then he JAWBREAKERS free! Melo knees, whips, but Andrade reverses. Andrade then follows, but Melo dodges, only for the SOUTHPAW LARIAT to hit! The fans fire up while both men are down! Melo and Andrade slowly sit up, and fans rally. Melo throws a haymaker, but Andrade eggs him on! Melo fires another, but Andrade SLAPS and SLAPS with palm strikes! Andrade blocks a kick to DRAGON SCREW! Then another DRAGON SCREW!

Melo hobbles up, swings, but misses! Andrade FLYING FOREARMS and both men are down again! The fans rally, Andrade kips up! The fans cheer as Andrade snarls. Andrade calls his shot, the fans rally behind him with “SI! SI! SI!” Andrade gets moving, CIEN SHADOWS! Cover, TWO!! Melo survives, showing why he was NXT and NXT North American Champion in his career. Andrade brings Melo up, reels him in, but Melo slips free of the suplex! Melo rebounds to LA MYSTICA! Cover, TWO! Andrade stays in this and Melo grows frustrated. Melo drags Andrade up, “This is Awesome!” as Melo puts Andrade in a corner.

Melo hoists Andrade up to the top rope backwards. Melo then climbs up behind Andrade, brings Andrade up, but Andrade fires elbows! Melo falls back and the fans fire up! Andrade adjusts, and he MOONSAULTS! Melo moves but Andrade MOONSAULTS again! Cover, TWO!! Melo survives and shocks Andrade! Andrade huffs ‘n’ puffs and brings Melo up. Andrade reels Melo in, back suplexes, but Melo lands out! Melo dodges again, kicks a leg out, then runs up, into a CHOP! Melo returns to KNEE anyway! Melo keeps moving, boot feint and ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Melo survives again but Andrade puts him in the drop zone.

Andrade goes to a corner and climbs up. The fans cheer as he reaches the top. Andrade aims, leaps, but into the FIRST 48! Cover, TWO!! Andrade survives that half court shot but Melo hurries back to the corner! Melo climbs, aims, and NOTHING BUT- NO! Airball, and Andrade scoops! Melo slips free, only to end up in underhooks! THE MESSAGE!! Cover, Andrade wins!

Winner: Andrade, by pinfall

El Idolo called his shot last week, and he hits the mark! But now that Andrade is through with H1M, will he be moving on to bigger and better?


Bayley and Nia Jax sit down for video chat interviews.

The Role Model WWE Women’s Champion and the Irresistible Queen of the Ring are in separate locations as Corey Graves interviews them. He wants to ask Nia about Cleveland but she says just stop. Look at her, and look at Bayley. Start feeling sorry for Bayley right now, because at SummerSlam, Nia beats Bayley, takes her title, and puts her down like an old, sick dog. Nia will put Bayley out of Nia’s misery. Bayley says wow, Nia hasn’t changed in the ten years they’ve known each other. Nia says oh no, she has changed. And before going on too long, Nia is Queen of the Ring, so address her as “Queen Nia.”

Bayley says she’ll address Nia how she wants. And Nia should know what Bayley meant by that. Nia is the same heartless woman she was since day one here. The same big mouth, and the attitude like she owns this place. The same Nia that in 2017, took Bayley out of her SummerSlam match. Oh, we’re going there now? Yes, they are, and let Bayley finish talking. Nia took Bayley out, that changed the trajectory of Bayley’s whole career. But Nia didn’t hurt Bayley because she’s so much bigger and stronger than Bayley or that she’s so vicious. Nia did it because she’s big, clumsy, and reckless. Nia gets pissed now!

Nia says honestly, Bayley, she is pretty content being Queen of the Ring, the Queen of WWE! Nia is on top! She’s coming for that title just because she can take it from Bayley! Well, then, bad news there. Don’t listen to what the fans are saying that Nia is bigger or that she’ll mop the floor with Bayley. No, Bayley wants Nia to look at her now, and if she’s changed so much since 2017, then so has Bayley. Bayley walks into SummerSlam with the championship, and she walks out with the championship! And there is nothing Nia can do to stop her. Bayley smiles but Nia asks if they’re done. Nia throws off her mic and storms off. Who will prove they’re THE top of the division when WWE arrives in The Land?


Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill head for Aldis’ office.

But before they can reach the door, Piper Niven & Chelsea Green stand in their way. Sorry, are they lost? They’re here to talk to Mr. Aldis. Uh, girl, nuh-uh. Not before Bianca & Jade do. They need to get that tag title rematch. Aw, they’re gonna complain about losing because they’re big complaining losers? Uh, isn’t that what Chelsea’s about to do? Piper says you don’t talk about Chelsea like that. Yeah, that’s how they’re talking about Bianca & Jade. So scoot on over, because Piper & Chelsea are talking to Aldis first! Jade steps to the door but Bianca says no no, it’s fine. They can talk with Aldis later, because these two are on Bianca’s nerves.

If they can’t decide on who talks with Aldis first, they can decide this in the ring. Jade likes that idea, too. Piper also likes that idea, but Chelsea doesn’t. Bianca & Jade say bye~ and head for gorilla position. Will The EST give Chelsea something to complain to Aldis about? Or can the Hot Mess prove she can back up all that talk?

Bianca Belair w/ Jade Cargill VS Chelsea Green w/ Piper Niven!

SmackDown returns as Chelsea makes her entrance, accompanied by “Lil’ Miss P.” The bell rings and Chelsea talks trash on Bianca. Then she SLAPS her! So Bianca SLAPS back! Bianca storms up, Chelsea dodges and Bianca runs into buckles! Chelsea then ENZIGIRIS Bianca, reels her in for chicken wings, but Bianca powers out. Bianca runs, gets around, waistlocks and GERMAN SUPLEXES! The fans fire up while Chelsea flounders. Bianca handsprings but Chelsea avoids the moonsault! Chelsea runs up but Bianca gets under the boot! Torture rack, but Chelsea flails free! O’Conner Roll, with tights! TWO!! Bianca has Chelsea’s legs, BIANCA WINS!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

Chelsea is already complaining and protesting to the ref! But then Jade and Piper step in, only for Chelsea to say time to go. The StrongEST Duo stands tall, but then someone is laughing. Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn are on the tron! And Isla says they’ve heard Bianca & Jade are looking for them. And they just love how the two have been so passionate about their titles. Alba says they get it, when you’re champions, you’ve got all the power! And right now, the power belongs to Alba & Isla. But lucky for Bianca & Jade, they’ll get a tiny glimpse at these belts next week. But when it comes to a rematch…? Well, we’ll see.

Alba & Isla laugh into the night, but will even the wicked witches fall victim to the forces of nature coming for them?


Nick Aldis is in the ring.

The SmackDown General Manager says as we all know, SummerSlam is right around the corner. And as GM, it is his responsibility to deliver the biggest and best matches he possibly can. With that in mind, he holds a contract signed by himself and by LA Knight. This match is for the United States Championship, so all that is left is the signature of THE United states Champion. Without further ado, please welcome first, the challenger, LA Knight! Omaha fires up for The Mega Star makes his way to the ring. Knight joins Aldis in the ring, and Aldis says now welcome the champion, Logan Paul!

Many fans boo as The Maverick makes his way out, but there are still some fans who want fist bumps. Logan tells the fans to get louder one way or another as he steps into the ring. Logan is given the mic while fans continue to boo, and others chant for “L A KNIGHT! L A KNIGHT!” Aldis shows Logan the contract, Logan asks Omaha a question. Why would he give “Hillbilly Aladdin,” this Sons of Anarchy extra, this Larry the Lobster guy a shot at the United States Championship? Knight tells the “edge lord” to look at him. Logan talks about no reason for facing Knight, and y’know, maybe he’s right. Maybe Logan can just take a walk and we’ll think about this later.

But the one thing Knight thinks about is, he just thinks the one reason Logan should reconsider is that every time they have been face to face, Knight has owned and cooked Logan. The fans cheer that! So let’s go back just a year ago. Knight walks down that aisle, “YEAH!” He gave Logan a map, “YEAH!” And he said that map gave exact directions. “YEAH!” Those directions were for where Logan could shove each and every bottle of Prime! “YEAH!” That was last year. But since then, Logan became US Champ, congrats to you. Logan thanks Knight for that. Knight admits, if Logan’s holding a title, that makes him the man around here.

But Knight figured to himself, maybe time for Knight’s shot. Knight asks, Logan says no. Knight shows up at Logan’s house, his idiot friends let Knight in and he hops into the pool to make it his toilet. And what does that do? Just got Knight an MITB qualifier, and a pin on Logan right here on this mat! Now that felt damn good, and Knight wants to do it again. But Logan isn’t giving Knight what he wants, and what he wants is a shot at the US title. Knight chases Logan all over the world just to get him to show up! Logan says just listen to yourself, “John,” you sound pathetic! You’re a grown man but look at yourself!

The fact is, Knight needs this match with Logan. Logan doesn’t! The fans boo and Logan says they are not the same. The difference here is Knight’s entire existence is defined by what he does in this ring. Not Logan. Logan can leave this ring to interview former presidents, building multi-billion dollar business, starting a family, and changing the landscape of sports media with his brother! The last name “Paul” echoes through the entire zeitgeist of culture! And that’s not to say that what Knight does isn’t important. It is important. Knight is very good. In fact, Logan likes the catchphrase bodybuilder shtick he’s got.

But the real problem is, Knight wants Logan’s accolades but is not Logan. Knight doesn’t think like him, doesn’t move like him. Knight wants to be champion but is not “him.” And for someone whose entire existence is defined by what they do in this ring, Knight has not had a single defining moment the past 20 years. Knight is a gym bro with a spray tan and catchphrase, pretending to be The Rock! Knight says oh~, cut him, he bleeds! Never heard that before. Leave it to Logan to recycle old material. Low rent, lowbrow, Low T! Low T Logan P! But talk about the US Championship, about frauds, let’s talk about that.

Here is a man parading around as a champion! Here’s a man playing fraud on this entire company, pretending to be US Champion! And meanwhile, Logan won’t sign a contract? Good thing Logan brought up his brother, because the brother is willing to jump into the ring with Mike Tyson. But Logan doesn’t seem to have balls just to step into the ring with Knight! Guess balls don’t run in the family. Logan says if Knight wants the match, fine! He’ll sign, and he’ll give Knight a shot at the title! And after he beats Knight, Knight will have nothing. Logan could say he’d take everything from Knight, but Knight has nothing of value to give!

In fact, how about this? Logan can give Knight something already. On the back of this contract, Logan’s gonna give Knight directions for where he can still his dreams of becoming a champion! YEAH~! The fans boo but then Logan shoves the contract at Knight. Aldis keeps these two from throwing down already, even though the fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Logan stands down, the fans boo, but Knight still has the match he wants. But then Logan slides back in to attack! Logan RAMS Knight into a corner, but Knight turns things around to fire off haymakers! Logan knees low, fires body shots, then winds up, but Knight blocks!

Knight cravats but Logan slips away again! Both men say that’s how close the other came! But again, Knight has the shot he wanted, will he use it to shut Logan up once and for all?


LA Knight returns backstage.

And he’s confronted by Santos Escobar & Elektra Lopez, who say, “L! A! KNIGHT!” “EW!” Santos says congrats on finally getting that US Championship match. Must be a great feeling, right? Knight pinned Logan Paul in Madison Square Garden. That must feel like sitting on top of the world. What’s with the questions, where’s this going? Santos says relax. Just a friendly reminder that Santos was in the Triple Threat and didn’t get pinned. He knows, Knight knows, Lopez knows, everybody knows~, that if it was 1v1, it would’ve been a different story. Knight says Santos clearly isn’t a student of history, because Knight’s been part of that story and he knows how that went.

But hey, SummerSlam’s still a few weeks away, so Knight has some free time. If Santos wants to get in touch with Knight, his mom has Knight’s number. Santos says Knight sure feels untouchable, huh? Facing Santos so close to that title shot is not the brightest idea. Wouldn’t want him getting hurt. But if Knight wants to squander his opportunity, why stop him? Santos & Lopez head out, but will Knight humble him before going after Logan?


Mia Yim VS Tiffany Stratton w/ Nia Jax!

As if dealing with The Queen of the Ring wasn’t hard enough, Michin has the Princess all up in her business! Will Mia remind us why she’s The Head Baddie in Charge? Or will no one put an end to #TiffyTime?

SmackDown returns and Mia makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, and Tiff throws Mia down by her hair! The fans cheer but then Mia catches Tiff for a cradle, TWO! Mia SHOTGUNS Tiff to a corner, runs up to forearm SMASH, then she sits Tiff down. Mia mocks Tiff to then CANNONBALL! High stack cover, ONE!! Tiff toughs it out but Mia KICKS her! Tiff avoids a roundhouse and wants a Tiffy Timeout! Mia chases Tiff but Tiff hides behind Nia. Mia says Nia shouldn’t even be here, but Tiff sucker punches Mia! Then cartwheel and Alabama Lift, for an ALABAMA SLAM to the floor!

Nia pats Tiff on the shoulder and Tiff asks what time it is, but SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Tiff has a headlock. Fans rally as Mia fights out. Mia runs but Tiff knees her low! Tiff throws Mia down, then goes to the apron, SLINGSHOT SENTON! Cover, TWO! Mia stays in this but Nia coaches Tiff. Mia goes to a corner, Tiff runs and handsprings in to back elbow! Tiff then reels Mia in, SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Tiff grows frustrated but Nia says she’s got this. Tiff waits on Mia to get up, then she runs to cartwheel and Alabama Lift again! But Mia fights to sunset flip it, TWO! Mia stands up, slips under Tiff’s lariat and backslides, TWO! Tiff stands up, but Mia ELBOWS her!

Mia runs up to LARIAT! And then YAKUZA KICK! And then DROPKICK! Tiff flounders back up, into a NECKBREAKER! Tiff staggers to a corner, Mia runs up to CHOP! Mia reels Tiff in, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Tiff toughs it out and Mia grows frustrated. Mia drags Tiff up to wrench and EAT DA- NO, Tiff ROCKS Mia first! Mia ROCKS Tiff back! Mia runs up but Tiff YANKS her to ropes! Tiff runs to HIP ATTACK! Tiff keeps moving, TIFFY STOMPS! Cover, TWO! Mia survives and now Tiff is growing frustrated! Tiff drags Mia up, brings her over to a corner, and hauls her up top.

Tiff climbs but Mia fires hands! Tiff staggers back, Mia adjusts and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Tiff tumbles out of teh ring while fans fire up! Mia fires herself up and builds speed, but Nia trips her up! The fans boo while the ref misses that! Mia kicks at Nia, goes back for Tiff, but Tiff ROCKS her first! Tiff then reels Mia in for a ROLLING SENTON! Then PRETTIEST MOONSAULT- WAIT! Bayley is here!? Bayley distracts Tiff and pisses off Nia! Nia runs in but Bayley TOSSES her over barriers! Tiff freaks out as Bayley has the briefcase! She SMASHES Nia with it! Bayley then smacks the case against the desk!

The fans fire up as Bayley hits the case off steel steps! She opens it up, dumps the contract out, and STMOPS the briefcase into pieces!! Mia rolls Tiff, MIA WINS!!

Winner: Mia Yim, by pinfall

The Role Model helps the HBIC get some payback on Nia and Miss MITB! Then Bayley mockingly says, “Oops.” Bayley puts the contract in what’s left of the case and slide it to Tiff. Will Tiff have to give that briefcase a makeover before she can properly cash it in?


The Bloodline speaks.

Solo Sikoa says, “Life is so good when you’re The Tribal Chief on the Island of Relevancy. So good. And it’s also busy. I never have a moment to myself. But when I do, you know what I love the most? A good mystery. Yeah. I’m not talking about a mystery of who’s gonna be Cody Rhodes’ tag team partner. No, I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about a mystery of who’s gonna step up and disrespect The Tribal Chief by teaming up with Cody Rhodes tonight. That’s who I’m talking about. Have you seen what we done to Randy Orton last week? Have you? So if you’re on Cody’s side, that means you’re against me.

“If you’re against my family, you’re against my Bloodline, and you’re against The Tribal Chief. So tonight, tonight… tonight better be a Handicap match, or someone will pay the price. Because I am The Tribal Chief, and you will… acknowledge me!” Jacob Fatu adorns Solo with the ula fala, and they raise up the ones. Will anyone be brave enough to defy The Bloodline to help The American Nightmare?


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s SmackDown!

With #DIY still WWE Tag Team Champions after last week, it is time to find NEW #1 Contenders! It will be a Tag Team Gauntlet match, with The Street Profits, Legado Del Fantasma, Pretty Deadly, The Good Brothers, the new duo of Apollo Crews & Baron Corbin, and even The Bloodline’s Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa, all fighting for that shot! Who wins out to then head for Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano?


Cody Rhodes & ??? VS A-Town Down Under!

The American Nightmare wanted a response from The Bloodline but got a response from the former WWE Tag Team Champions. They admittedly were collateral damage last week, but this is mostly them taking out their frustrations over losing twice in as many weeks. Will Austin Theory & Grayson Waller tear down the Undisputed WWE Champion? Or will he have back-up after all?

Cody heads to gorilla, and Kevin Owens is there! The Prizefighter says see you out there. Seems Solo forgot there is still someone crazy enough to defy him, because KO’s been doing it all along! Will Kevin #JustKeepFighting until he can’t fight no more?

Kevin comes back to throw hands, but Fatu shoves him back to SUPERKICK! Kevin flops into the ring but the Samoan Werewolf stomps him into a corner. Fatu rains down headbutts, then he goes corner to corner! HIP ATTACK! Fatu shouts at Kevin, “You wanna disrespect my Tribal Chief!? The man that does everything for the family!!” Solo sits Cody up so he can watch as Fatu goes corner to corner again, for another HIP ATTACK! Fatu keeps moving, and he HIP ATTACKS again!! Fatu just keeps moving and he hits a FOURTH!! The fans boo but then Solo HEADBUTTS Cody down!

Fatu drags Kevin to the drop zone, then goes up a corner! Cody is helpless as Fatu hits a DIVING HEADBUTT right on Kevin! Fatu then storms out to join the rest of the Bloodline. They haul Cody up and over to the desk! TRIPLE POWERBOMB through the desk!! The fans boo, but Kevin is still moving?! Solo looms over Kevin, and Tama grabs a chair! Tama puts the chair around Kevin’s head, and says this is what he gets! Tama POSTS Kevin head first!! Fatu presents the ula fala, and The Bloodline gathers around their Tribal Chief. Fatu adorns Solo with the ula fala, and the Bloodline raises their ones to the sky.

Cody sputters but he can’t sit up. Can Cody recover and be ready for SummerSlam? Or is Solo just two weeks away from taking over the WWE?

My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown here to not just build SummerSlam but to follow up last week. Great opening promo from Cody to call out The Bloodline, and I suppose A-Town Down Under calling him out in return was a logical move. Good promo from Solo, and it did foreshadow who would be Cody’s partner in a way. Kevin was of course coming back not just to help Cody but to avenge Randy, and we got a great tag main event for it. Great win for Cody & Kevin, but of course we got another brutal beating from The Bloodline. They’re doing their best to take away all of Cody’s allies, but I have a feeling this only motivates Kevin & Randy being there at SummerSlam to help. And they can even have a moment where, when it seems Cody is about to lose, Heyman returns with Roman to scare Solo.

Melo had a good promo tonight, and he had a great match with Andrade, but I figured Melo was losing. I don’t know how WWE Speed has been going but I don’t think Melo is going to be facing Andrade for the Speed title. I’m still wondering if Andrade circles back to Legado Del Fantasma. That tag team gauntlet is going to be a lot of fun but I would think Tama & Loa win so that The Bloodline gets back in that title story. Speaking of, we naturally got more interaction of Bianca & Jade with Chelsea & Piper. Bianca beating Chelsea so quickly practically makes a case for a Women’s Speed Championship. But at the same time, good promo from Alba & Isla to set up the continued story with Bianca & Jade, even while Raw is heating up with a lot of top level teams.

Very good promo segment from Bayley and Nia, though I did not think Bayley would work-shoot Nia’s early days of being green and “unsafe.” Each of them getting involved in Mia VS Tiff was good stuff, too, as was the destruction of Tiff’s briefcase. That’s also a very clever way to give Tiff a reason to customize the case into something that fits her vibe, aka it’ll be pink and sparkly cuz she’s the Wrestling Barbie. And while Naomi is busy with Blair Davenport in a feud on the side, Mia makes for a good teammate for Bayley to stand up to Nia & Tiff.

And we got a very good, non-traditional contract signing segment. Logan again played his part perfectly, being so arrogant that A) nothing, not even Knight pinning him, earns Knight a title shot and B) rubbing in that he doesn’t even need pro-wrestling, he just does this to show off. Knight took the long way to tell Logan that he should take the match to prove he’s not a coward, which is the same reason I was thinking the whole time. And like any quality arrogant Heel, Logan gets goaded into the match. Knight will definitely make an example of Santos next week, but I feel like the title match itself could go either way. If it were me, I’d have Knight win because he really has been waiting a long time for something, and this feels like the right time.

My Score: 8.8/10
