PLAY BY PLAY

Seth Rollins is backstage.

“Welcome, everybody, to Monday Night Rollins. Where last week, Kevin Owens connived his way into MY title match at WWE Day 1. But tonight, oh tonight! Kevin Owens, in just a few moments actually, finds himself going one on one with WWE Champion, Big E, inside the steel cage! Hahaha! A match where they will rip each other apart in, and I will enjoy every single second. And at Day 1, we will usher in a new year. We will usher in a new era with a NEW champion when I beat both Big E and Kevin Owens and reclaim my rightful place as WWE Champion! Hahahaha! Enjoy the show.”

 

Big E speaks.

“Man, I’ve been through hell and back to get my WWE Championship. And tonight is no different. Kevin Owens, it may be you and me and Seth Rollins at WWE Day 1 for my WWE Championship, but tonight, we’re locked inside a steel cage! And boy, there is no easy way out! There is no shortcut home! But not only am I going to beat you, Kevin, I’m gonna punish you. Oh, you got to feel that, SUCKA!”

 

Kevin Owens speaks.

“Big E’s been calling me a liar for weeks, months really. But he’s the liar. Because earlier he said it was his WWE Championship.” It’s KEVIN’s championship! Big E is just holding it for Kevin until Day 1. That means there’s 26 days left until Kevin takes the title and the fans can rejoice. Big E wants to punish Kevin but Kevin will be the one to punish him. And that is no lie.

Big E may have stood tall just before the break, but what we didn’t see during the break was that BOBBY LASHLEY just appeared and wrecked all three of them! Big E, Kevin Owens AND Seth Rollins got dominated by the Rocky Mountain Machine! Will Lashley be waiting on the Monday after Day 1 to take the title from the Triple Threat winner?

 

Zelina Vega w/ Carmella VS Nikki A.S.H. w/ Rhea Ripley!

“Hear ye, hear ye,” the Queen of the Ring says. “How lucky are all of you that the Queen and the Women’s Tag Team Champions decided to grace you with our presence tonight? Uh, the queen is talking. The queen is talking! Would you rather be cheering for that loser, Almost a Superhero, Nikki A.S.H?” Zelina feels sorry for Nikki, but not as much as when she’ll beat Nikki tonight and send her into the pit of despair. AKA, Memphis! But Zelina stops gloating as Nikki & Rhea make their way out! Will the Almost Super Hero humble the Queen of Raw?

The bell rings, the two tie up, and Zelina powers Nikki back. The ref counts, Zelina lets off at 4, but Nikki elbows her away. Nikki goes up but Zelina YANKS her down!

The Queen stands tall and Rhea is frustrated. Mella shouts at the assistant to get Zelina’s crown for her, and the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions gloat all the way to the back. Will Rhea & Nikki ever get those belts back off such an arrogant duo?

 

RKBRO meet backstage.

Matt Riddle is in his ring commentator best. He got one for Orton, where is it? Don’t start. But Riddle was watching this movie and- Kevin Patrick walks in to ask them about tonight’s Raw Tag Team Championship tournament? No, no, it’s the RKBRO-nament. They put their favorite holiday movies in a tournament style bracket to debate which is the best, and that gave them the idea for this tournament tonight to determine their next #1 contenders. Adam Pearce & Sonya Deville both loved the idea and- Randy says none of that happened. That is all Riddle’s idea. All Orton said was that if they had to defend their tag titles, that is all they would focus on. And then Riddle replied about how Home Alone changed his life.

Bro, he shared that in confidence…! But on a more important not, RKBRO will be special guest hosts and correspondents, doing all the interviews courtesy of RKBRO. Orton never agreed to that, either. Riddle loves his sarcasm. And so… here’s your blazer! There is no way in hell Orton is wearing that. But Orton will look so good in it! And the fans want it. Plus the voices in Riddle’s head are telling him to slap the blazer on. Is that so? He wants Orton to wear the blazer? And Memphis wants to see it? Yes, they need it! FINE! Orton puts on the blazer! RKBRO head out, who will win this very professional Raw Tag Team Championship Contenders Tournament?

 

Rhea tries to talk to Nikki backstage.

She wants her not to worry, they’ll get it next time. But then a fan comes by and says she’s their biggest fan. Nikki would love to! Sorry, she was talking to Jerry the King Lawler. Jerry doesn’t mind. And sorry about that loss, kid. Want an autograph? Nikki sulks away and Jerry shrugs. What will it take for the Almost Super Hero to cheer up?

 

Tag Team RKBRO-nament: The Street Profits VS AJ Styles & Omos!

Raw returns and the Phenomenal Styles and the colossal Omos make their entrance. RKBRO are on commentary, or at least Riddle will be, just as Riddle said. The Profits then make their entrance, and fans fire up for the red Solo cups raining down! The teams sort out, Styles starts with Montez Ford and Styles fires right off! Styles CHOPS, whips, but Ford reverses to dropkick Styles down! Ford brings Styles up, wrenches the arm, whips him into the corner, then tags Dawkins. The Profits double whip, Dawkins dropkicks Styles down! Then they coordinate, BACK SUPLEX SPLASH, to Dawkins’ RUNNING SPLASH! Cover, TWO!

Angelo Dawkins brings Styles up, Styles RAMS him into the corner! Styles digs his shoulder in, the ref counts and Styles lets off. Dawkins dodges to ROCK Styles, whip him corner to corner, CYCLONE SPLASH! Dawkins runs but Omos holds the ropes down! Dawkins tumbles out and Omos shrugs. Riddle says that is not in the spirit of the RKBRO-nament! But Styles DECKS Ford, then SLINGSHOT FOREARMS Dawkins! Styles has control as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Omos is in! He drags Dawkins up, whips him hard into a corner, and Dawkins falls to the mat. Omos drags Dawkins back up, scoops him and then SLAMS him! Omos stares Ford down, then he brings Dawkins back up to CLUB him down. Omos drags Dawkins up, Dawkins throws body shots but Omos knees him low. Omos CLUBS Dawkins, looms over him, but Dawkins hits a JAWBREAKER! Omos checks his teeth as he staggers back, but he CLOBBERS Dawkins down! Omos scowls, drags Dawkins back up, then tags Styles in. Omos holds Dawkins in place for Styles to stomp. Styles brings Dawkins up but Dawkins fires forearms!

Styles KICKS the leg but Dawkins throws more forearms! Styles throat chops, runs but only gets buckles! Hot tag to Ford! Ford rallies on Styles, brings him up but Styles blocks the suplex, so Ford rolls him up! TWO, and Ford mule kicks then front kicks then ENZIGURIS! Ford fires up, taunts Omos, runs in but Styles BOOTS him! Styles runs in but Ford dodges to then LEAPING LARIAT! Ford takes off the glove, and he BACK HAND SLAPS Omos! Omos is furious! Ford screams but Dawkins ROCKS Omos! DOUBLE DROPKCIKS sends Omos off the apron! Styles PELES Dawkins, slides under Ford, but Ford fights the lift to switch the waistlock!

Styles lands out of the back suplex to ENZIGURI, and PELE! Then Styles suplexes, BRAINBUSTER!! But Styles won’t cover, he goes to the apron! Styles aims, but Omos gets up to tag himself in! Styles is surprised by that, but Dawkins drags Styles out to ROCK him! Omos runs over to RUN OVER Dawkins! Ford PLANCHAS, but Omos catches him! APRON POWERSLAM! Omos throws Dawkins into barriers but the ring count! Omos didn’t hear it in time, he gets counted out!! The Profits win!!

Winners: The Street Profits, by count-out (advance to the second round)

Riddle says that is an upset! But he admits, he’s relieved he doesn’t have to worry about Omos. Styles tells Omos he has to listen, to do what he’s told. But Omos just leaves Styles behind! Is this the end of their phenomenal partnership? Riddle gets in the ring to say breaking news! Riddle is “Howard Brocell” and he asks for a comment on this crazy event. AJ, a word? What? Is Riddle talking to him? Yes! Styles tells Riddle to go interview the winners. Well, AJ, Riddle’s integrity tells him to follow the biggest story, and the Profits got out way too fast. But things got juicy there between Styles and Omos. Would he like to explain what’s going on?

What is this? Dateline? Kinda. Styles says that was a disagreement between a great tag team, that’s all. Not that Riddle would know anything about that. Now get the mic out of Styles’ face or he’ll shove it down your throat! Styles storms off, Riddle says this was an explosive start to the RKBRO-nament. It’s anyone’s game! Except for Styles & Omos. They’re out. Would Randy like to add anything? Fans cheer and Orton gets a mic to say, “Nope.” Always beautiful insight from Randy. But dude, things are just heating up for the tag team tournament, brought to you by the three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment, R K BRO. “Back to you, Jimbo Slice.”

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

The Raw Women’s Champion has a big match with Liv Morgan> yes, a big, big night. For Liv. The biggest night of Liv’s career, going in with a lot of momentum. Liv won her match last week, hit her finisher afterward. The week before that, sucker punched Becky as hard as she could, and the week before that, countered the Manhandle Slam. The Liv Morgan bandwagon is big and the train is rolling. But the real battle isn’t in the ring with Becky, no. It’ll be in the mind and in the heart, and out in the crowd where fans want to tear her apart. No one really wants Liv to win. You do well enough, they cheer. You do too well, they turn on you.

Liv is in the perfect position as the underdog who will never join the stars. Becky is the biggest star there is! So it’s just another Monday for your champion, Big Time Becks. Will Becky prove herself right through and through when she takes on Liv later tonight?

 

RKBRO talks backstage.

Riddle says that was the coolest! When Orton said, “Nope,” the fans went insane! But Riddle says Orton left some money on the table. They gotta bring the fans on a roller coaster ride, dude! Is that right? A little bit. Orton says his broadcasting career is over. For now, at least. Have fun, it’s all on you, now. Thanks, Randy! Riddle vows not to let him down!

 

WWE United States Open Challenge: Damian Priest VS ???

The Archer of Infamy continues to be a fighting champion, not even worrying about who’ll answer the call! Who steps up and tries to take Priest’s title? We find out, after the break.

Roode ducks the heel kick to shove, ducks the lariat then hits a BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Roode snarls and throws forearms, but Priest forearms back! Roode kicks low, Priest knees low! Roode CHOPS, Priest KICKS, KICKS and KICKS! ROUNDHOUSE! Roode staggers, Priest springboards, but Roode gets him for a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Roode grows frustrated again, Priest crawls to ropes. Priest drags himself up, Roode wants him, kicks him in and reels him in, but no DDT!

Priest dragon sleepers, but Roode fights free! Only to run into the choke grip! Roode fights out of that, rolls Priest up, TWO! Priest catches Roode to the dragon sleeper, RECKONING!! Cover, Priest wins!

Winner: Damian Priest, by pinfall (still WWE United States Champion)

But Ziggler SUPERKICKS Priest down! The Show-Off took out his frustrations, and promises that next time, Priest is done! But will the Archer of Infamy shoot down these Dirty Dawgs next time they meet?

Austin Theory visits Vince McMahon’s office again.

They sit down and Theory is a bit wary given last time, Vince slapped him. Theory’s been doing good? Yeah, good. Vince reminds Theory that asking about how someone doing is fake. Now time to learn something this week. Theory will be in a match tonight. Really? Okay! Wait, did Vince expect him to do that? Was he surprised? Yeah, definitely. Oh. Well then he didn’t really learn from last week. Will Theory learn much of anything with the cryptic ways Mr. McMahon is teaching him? Or is it just Theory who’s out of touch?

 

MizTV returns!

The Miz struts his way out to the ring, and he’s inviting the Rated R Superstar to be his first guest! Will Edge give the Hollywood A-Lister the satisfaction? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Miz welcomes us back to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, and he knows what we’re thinking. They want to know where his beautiful, gorgeous, sexy wife is, but Maryse doesn’t go to places like Memphis, Tennessee. Have you seem yourselves lately? She’s not coming here. But Miz rewatched his confrontation with Edge from last week, and he couldn’t believe his eyes. It was unbelievable. Edge complimented him! A heartfelt compliment from Edge! Miz has known Edge for 15 years, it doesn’t sound like him. He’s a shell of his former self! Or is he? We’ll find out. Miz introduces the Rated R Superstar, the music hits, and Edge appears!

Edge has the fans fired up and he heads down the ramp and even Miz fires up for the pyro. Edge gets in the ring, Miz takes a seat but Edge just takes the mic. Edge decides to sit after all and sees Miz is confused. Edge says he meant those compliments, and he still means them this week. Aww, how sweet. But Miz can’t help but think that the Rated R Superstar has lost his edge. Wow, a clever pun, Mike. But the ultimate opportunist, the master manipulator would’ve just speared Miz out of his $9000 shoes. And honestly, this Edge is definitely physical in the ring, but Miz can’t help but think that mentally, Edge is weak.

First off, $9000 for ugly ass shoes? Edge’s Jordan 3’s are way cooler. And don’t mistake kindness for weakness. Whatever is going on here, Miz has bigger issues than Edge. Miz says Edge doesn’t need his kindness. When he needed that was in 2006 when Miz started in the WWE. Miz walking on eggshells, everything he said and did was wrong, and how he got kicked out of the locker room! But they both know Miz wasn’t kicked out for eating chicken, he was kicked in because he didn’t fit the mold. He was an outcast, he was ostracized for having “it,” but everyone else wanted to protect their spot.

So instead of protecting the kid who came off the hit show, MTV’s The Real World, he was treated like a peasant when he was already more famous than 90% of the locker room! Miz doesn’t need Edge’s kindness, nor does he want it. So then Miz is painting Edge with “that brush?” Glossing over some key points here. It was in this arena where Edge pulled Miz aside, told him he has “it,” and that he could endure the BS. Oh wow~. Well does Miz remember what he did after that? He brushed Edge off! Or did Miz forget? Edge went through the same things seven years before that! And if someone had pulled him aside, Edge damn sure would’ve listened.

The biggest difference between Edge and Miz, is that Edge didn’t walk into the locker room and already think he was a bigger star than everyone else. And Edge isn’t afraid of losing the spot. When he sees a new face, he sees a new opportunity and a new opponent. He never puts anyone down. But Miz wants to blame everyone else? Here’s what he should do: At the end of the day, Miz should look himself in the mirror, and that mirror will tell him what it would’ve in 2006. “Miz, you’re an ass!” Miz gets up and so does Edge. Miz seems to think things over, and then he chuckles. “And you’re a hypocrite, and you’re vulnerable, and I’ve surpassed you in and out of the ring.”

2022 will be the Year of Miz, and Miz can’t think of a better way to usher it in than beating Edge on January 1st! Well if that’s a challenge, Edge accepts! But Edge is right here, they’re in Memphis, and there’s nothing between them but air and opportunity. What’s Miz say to that? Fans fire up, but Miz says, “No.” But here’s why. Edge thinks Miz is afraid? He’s- Edge steps and Miz falls over! “Not afraid?” Edge chuckles and leaves. Will the Rated R Superstar make this A-Lister feel like just an extra on WWE Day 1?

 

Backstage interview with Liv Morgan.

Sarah brings up Becky’s strong words, how does Liv respond? Liv heard that, and Becky isn’t wrong. Liv did all of that, and Becky is right, people are watching. That scares Becky, because what she got wrong is that fans are watching to see Liv win. They believe there is a chance that things won’t go Becky’s way. Becky’s used to getting what she wants, but Liv will do everything in her power to get what she wants: that Raw Women’s Championship! Liv is ready, but will her moment finally arrive?

 

Tag Team RKBRO-nament: Rey & Dominik Mysterio VS The Alpha Academy!

La Familia has had their run-ins with Chad Gable & Otis Dozovic before, but now there’s a title opportunity on the line! Will Rey & Dom get a step closer to becoming the first-ever two-time father-son tag team champions? Or will Gable & Otis win this one #ForTheAcademy?

Raw returns and Riddle is back on commentary! The Alpha Academy make their entrance, the teams sort out and Dom starts against Gable. They circle, they tie up, Gable trips Dom and knuckle lock covers, ONE! Dom gets up, goes shoulder to shoulder with Gable but then breaks to fire off forearms. Dom goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Then another arm-drag for a cording hold! Gable whips Dom away from Rey, and Gable says, “Don’t go running to daddy!” Gable then SLAPS Dom! Dom runs in, Gable slips around to BUTTERFLY SUPELX! Bridging cover, ONE, but Gable wrenches, only for Dom to whip Gable and SLAP him back!

Gable can’t believe it but fans fire up! Gable waistlocks, Dom throws him out of the ring! Gable gets back in, Dom dropkicks him down! Dom brings Gable away, but Gable reels him in for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Otis talks trash, Gable crawls over to Dom, but Dom grabs his leg! Gable stomps Dom then YANKS the leg! Gable stares Rey down, goes back to Dom, but Dom throws forearms, Gable shoves, Dom runs but into a rolling HALF CRAB! Dom endures, Riddle likes the seamless transition. Dom powers up, rolls Gable to a cradle, TWO! Gable blocks a kick but not the ENZIGURI! Gable staggers, Dom trips him up! Dom brings Gable away from Otis, but Gable CLUBS him!

Gable brings Dom up, Dom counter punches! Dom fire so haymakers, whips, but Gable reverses. Gable runs in but blocks the boot to put it in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Gable goes up top, MOONSAULT, but Dom turns it into a roll-up, the Mysterios win?!!

Winners: Rey & Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall (advance to the second round)

No one even tagged out in that match! Gable keeps Otis back, the loss is on him! Riddle gets back in the ring to interview the losers. The first ever RKBROnament, how do they feel- Otis scoops Riddle! Riddle shouts, “I’M A JOURNALIST!” but he still gets the POWERSLAM! Will Riddle learn when not to talk? Will the Mysterios get past the Profits to go after the tag titles?

 

Austin Theory warms up in Vince’s office.

While Vince was testing Theory, he was serious about making a match. Vince is on the phone but then ends the call. He has Theory take a seat and says unfortunately, because Theory wasn’t ready to start, no match tonight. But last time he had a match was the WWE title against Big E. Yes, and it was impressive. But Theory is not having a match tonight. So find another way to impress him. Uh, okay. Theory unzips to show off his abs while doing jumping jacks. #AllDay, Mr. McMahon! All day. No, please stop. Vince says to find another way. Use your brains! Right, okay. Theory has an idea and heads out. Vince is ready to see what Theory comes up with.

 

Finn Balor VS T-Bar!

The Prince is ready to make Memphis part of the Balor Club, but the towering T-Bar is ready to destroy everyone! Will Balor avoid that destruction to make tonight Too Sweet?

Raw returns and T-Bar is in the ring. The bell rings, T-Bar and Finn tie up. Finn gets the arm but T-Bar CLUBS him with the other. Finn KICKS a leg, T-Bar choke grips. Finn headlocks, T-Bar powers out, Finn ducks and dodges then leaps, but into T-Bar’s arms! T-Bar KNEES then TOSSES Finn, covers, TWO! T-Bar rains down fists, drags Finn up and bumps him off buckles.

T-Bar falls, Finn adjusts, COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Finn wins!

Winner: Finn Balor, by pinfall

Finn rebounds from his loss to Seth Rollins over a literally huge challenge! Will Finn be able to fight his way to- Oh no! Theory goes after Finn! This is him impressing Vince with an ATL to Finn! Oh, and a selfie, too! Will Theory score points with Vince along with the likes? Or will Finn show Theory to never cheap shot the Prince?

 

Dana Brooke sneaks around backstage.

The WWE 24/7 Champion has to be careful at all times, of course. But then R-Truth AND Akira Tozawa jump out and surprise her! They could’ve gotten her right here, but Truth doesn’t even know if that’s PG. They’ll have to read up on the rules. Take care, Brooke. But wait! Here comes Reggie like an American Ninja Warrior! But he tells Dana not to worry. He just wanted to finish that conversation from last week. He was impressed by that move she pulled on Cedric. And that title looks nice on her. But Tamina comes storming in! Reggie helps delay her so Dana can get away. Will Reggie win something other than the title from Dana Brooke with that assist?

 

MVP and Bobby Lashley head out backstage.

Time to paint the town red. But Kevin Patrick asks as to why Lashley attacked Big E, Rollins and Kevin Owens. MVP says KP knows how this works. “We live in an area where people have become way too comfortable disrespecting other people, because there are no consequences for those actions. Not so in the All Mighty Era.” Those three had the audacity to have a WWE Championship match without even mentioning Lashley’s name. That was disrespectful, and that attack was the consequence. “When you disrespect me, Kevin, that’s what happens.” MVP adjusts KP’s tie, and the Hurt Business heads out. Is this all further setting up the Rocky Mountain Machine on the other side of Day 1?

 

WWE takes a closer look at Liv Morgan.

The youngest of six children to a single mother who worked 60 hours a week. Most times, they were above water. But there were times where things didn’t work. A confused kid who couldn’t find her way in life. But Liv loved the WWE her whole life. With a dream in her head she couldn’t express, that only she could understand, now she knows who she is. From NXT to SmackDown to Raw, from confused kid to confident woman who fights for her dreams. She won’t be pushed aside or shamed for feeling her feelings. She won’t be denied the moment she’s waited an entire life for. She knows who she is: the next Raw Women’s Champion.

 

Raw Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch VS Liv Morgan!

This could be the moment where it all comes falling down for The Man! Emphasis on could, as far as Becky is concerned. Will she overlook and underestimate Liv enough for Liv to finally live that championship life? Or is Liv still too small time for Big Time Becks?

Raw returns as Liv makes her entrance. Is it her moment? We find out after the break!

Raw returns again, and the introductions are made. The belt is raised, and we see if a dream lives or dies in Memphis!

Liv and Becky circle, tie up, Becky waistlocks and SLAMS Liv down. Becky talks trash, “Welcome to the big time.” Liv gets up, circles with Becky again, but Becky gets around to headlock. Liv powers out, Becky runs her over, and Becky flexes on Liv. Liv gets up but Becky pie faces her around. Liv gets the arm to arm-drag, then runs in. Becky avoids Oblivion by mere seconds! Liv tells her how close that was, but she lets Becky get on the apron,. Becky kicks Liv, Liv forearms back! Liv headlocks, Becky powers out, but Liv runs Becky over! Liv gives back the trash talk, things speed up and Liv rolls over Becky to then sidestep. Becky catches the hurdle to throw Becky down!

Becky wants the arm, Liv rolls her up, TWO! Liv gets the arm, La Magistrol! TWO, Liv trips Becky to a jackknife, TWO as Becky bridges up and spins Liv around! Liv reverses the backslide, TWO! Liv has the leg for a lateral press, TWO! Becky DECKS Liv to stop that! Becky stomps Liv, talks trash, then SLAPS Liv down! Becky kicks Liv around, whips her to a corner, but Liv elbows her back. Liv goes up and up and missile dropkicks! Becky scrambles away, Liv runs in to DOUBLE- NO, Becky dodges to JUMP KICK!

Liv falls out of the ring, Becky builds speed. Becky slides, Liv ducks it and hits a CODE BREAKER! Liv gets in the ring, sees Becky slowly get up, and now Liv builds speed! Liv DIVES! Direct hit and down goes Becky! Fans fire up but Liv clutches an arm! Liv still gets up and gets Becky in the ring to cover, TWO! Liv grimaces, but she goes to the apron for a breather. Fans rally up, Liv climbs up a corner, but Becky stops her with a forearm! Becky climbs up, throws more forearms, then brings Liv up. Liv fights back with body shots, but Becky still SUPERPLEXES! Both women are down as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns once more, and the forearms are flying! Becky knees low and throws Liv out to the apron, to then bring her in the ropes for more forearms and uppercuts! Becky sobats, then goes to the corner, GUILLOTINE LEG DROP! Cover, TWO! Becky is getting frustrated but she thinks of what else to try. Liv slowly gets up, Becky straddle attacks then chinlocks to stretch Liv back. Liv endures, fans rally up, and Liv fights up to throw body shots! Liv arm-drags Becky to a corner, Becky comes back but into counter punches! Becky shoves Liv, shoots after a leg and trips Liv to roll her and dragon sleeper, INVERTED DDT! Cover, TWO!

Becky paces while Liv gets to a corner. Becky runs in but Liv dodges! Liv throws Becky down by her hair, then hurries up top! But Becky YANKS Liv off and Liv hits buckles on the way down! Becky goes up top now, to leap, but she has to bail out as Liv dodges! ENZIGURI! Both women are down but fans rally up. Becky gets up, brings Liv around, but Liv forearms! And again! Liv kicks low, front kicks, then dodges to THESZ PRESS! Liv fires fast hands and fans fire up! Becky shoves Liv away, goes to a corner, but Liv back body blocks! Liv rolls and runs in to SHINING WIZARD! Liv has Becky on the ropes, but still no Oblivion! But she SWING KICKS Becky away!

Liv runs, goes up the ropes, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Becky survives and Liv can’t believe it! Liv is growing frustrated, but she hears the fans firing up for her! She gets Becky up but Becky sobats and EuroUppers! Liv staggers to a corner, Becky runs in but into a RANA! Becky tumbles to the apron, Liv KICKS her down!

Liv flails, scrambles, ROPEBREAK! Fans fire up as Becky lets off, but Becky drags Liv away. Liv gets a cradle! TWO!! Becky escapes, gets Liv, but Liv wheelbarrows out of the Manhandle Slam to victory roll, TWO! Becky has it, with the ropes! BECKY WINS!

Winner: Becky Lynch, by pinfall (still Raw Women’s Champion)

Just like Survivor Series when Becky beat Charlotte Flair! But if The Man had to cheat Liv like she did The Queen, what does that say about Big Time Becks’ confidence? Will Liv get another chance down the line?


My Thoughts:

Not a bad Raw, but there could’ve been better things. For one, don’t do two commercial breaks before the main event even starts. And that Liv Morgan vignette should’ve been shown last week instead of right before her match as filler. That was almost like rubbing it in that she wasn’t going to win tonight. The match itself was good, though that same double commercial break might’ve killed the crowd’s energy. It did get going once Liv had her rally, but Becky getting the dirty win is surely to extend this. You can’t have WWE Day 1 feel like it matters if you keep Becky Lynch off it.

The Women’s Tag Division continues to be poorly booked with how quick Zelina VS Nikki was, and I swear they better be making Nikki go back to her SAnitY ways, not turning on Rhea. This tag division barely has teams, they can’t take away one of their more popular ones. Also when are Zelina & Mella going to show up with these belts on SmackDown? They need to be taking on a team like Shayna Baszler & Natalya to scare them for a minute. But Bianca VS Piper was an awesome match, exactly what we needed from that feud. A bit disappointed that Piper literally walked away, but maybe they cue up a rematch.

We got great stuff from the WWE Championship story tonight. Great opening promos, great Steel Cage match, even if it was a fairly typical steel cage match with the outside interference. The rather lame thing was that the TV audience didn’t get to see Lashley’s attack on the three of them until the replays. Was that just bad timing since this is all live? And while MVP & Lashley had a good promo later that could imply wanting to make things a Fatal 4 Way, I would rather they wait for a winner at Day 1, and then Lashley goes after the winner at the Royal Rumble. Also, why aren’t the Hurt Business all together? Didn’t they work together at Crown Jewel?

Just as I thought there was no one for the US Championship Open Challenger, the Glorious Jobber to the Stars pops up. But it was still a really good match, and naturally Priest wins. Ziggler getting his shot in probably means he’ll answer the challenge next time. Not sure who will ever take this title off Priest since so many good choices got released. I was thinking Finn, to revisit their NXT TakeOver: In Your House match, but seems he goes from being fodder for Rollins to have something with Theory just so this Vince-Theory story has something happen. But even then, what happens there? Finn putting Theory over so Theory can go for a title?

The tag team tournament was really fun tonight. Riddle and Orton continue to have good promos together, and it seems Omos and Styles are close to breaking up. Styles putting Omos over in a singles match could be quite the moment. Alpha Academy losing by it basically being just Gable VS Dom the whole time was quite the surprise. But Riddle was talking up the Mysterios on commentary, and I myself want to see RKBRO VS Mysterios, so I hope the Mysterios win. Profits VS Mysterios will be a really good one, that’s for sure.

My Score: 8.3/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back.

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back.

Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses.

Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
