Seth Rollins heads to the ring!

The Visionary is in an even better mood than usual because he has a rematch with Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania Backlash! And Rollins goes to the ring to get a mic. “Ooooh, welcome to Monday Night Rollins! It is a party out here tonight, and nobody wants to party alone! So I’ve got an invitation to make. An invitation to my WrestleMania Backlash opponent himself, The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! C’mon down, let’s have a chat, baby! HAHA!” And to oblige, Cody makes his entrance. Buffalo is fired up as Cody joins Rollins in the ring. Rollins says they don’t need to stop cheering, give Cody more! Rollins even starts a “Cody! Cody!” chant.

Rollins asks Cody how it feels to be on top of the world. C’mon, give it up for the Nightmare! Cody says he’ll stand on ceremony just a moment. This all feels so… familiar. As in, Rollins and Cody in the ring, in this city, and for those who don’t know the story, Buffalo is Rhodes Country. But familiarity and admiration are strangers. Rollins has invited Cody, so please, what does Rollins want to talk about? Rollins says, “Ohhh, Cody.” There has been so much on Rollins’ mind. And as memory serves, Buffalo might be Rhodes Country, but this is about respect. Rollins wants to share how much he respects Cody.

Cody soaks up the adulation and Rollins gets mad. Rollins tells Cody to never do that again. But then he does, and Rollins gets further annoyed. This was going to go one way, but now it’s going another. Rollins was going to say how much he respected the Rhodes, from Cody to his brother to his daddy, Dusty! Rollins was going to say how much respect he had for Cody’s long journey going away, working hard, and coming back as the American Nightmare. But instead, Rollins must remind Cody that all his hard work is nothing because Seth Freakin’ Rollins made Cody a star in one NIGHT at WrestleMania!

Fans boo but Rollins says that’s the truth. Cody says there’s a lot of pretense. Let’s dispense with pleasantries and get to the point. The point Rollins is getting to is that at WrestleMania, Cody had an “unfair advantage.” Cody came in as the surprise opponent! Mr. Rhodes, back after all this time! Rollins didn’t have time to prepare, and that is why he lost. A tough pill to swallow, but what’s tougher is that people think Cody is better than Rollins. That is something Rollins cannot live with because it’s not true! Rollins is better than Cody, in every single possible way! Cody may be the flavor of the month, but he is not the future of the industry.

Rollins talks the talk better than Cody. Rollins walks the walk better than Cody. And he most certainly dresses the dress and drips the drop better than Cody. But most importantly, Cody came back to fulfill a legacy and win the WWE World Championship, an admirable goal. Rollins has been to that mountaintop, and THAT makes him better than Cody! Cody says, “Forgive me, I’m gonna correct you.” Rollins has been to the mountaintop four times. Four times, and Cody none. But all of that, the diatribe and tantrum, does not change WrestleMania. And in his six years away, Cody had a management job and learned a little something called mediation.

Rollins can go on and on about how great he is, and Cody could do the same, they go back and forth and back and forth, so why don’t they involve a neutral third party? They can ask the good folks of Buffalo! Fans are already cheering for Cody, so Cody asks them, “Do you think that I am better than Seth Rollins?” “YES! YES! YES!” Rollins encourages them to get louder and the fans oblige. Then he gets annoyed and tells them to shut up. Cody and the fans think it is so easy, standing here and someone else walks out and you can just win! But here’s an idea. Rollins wants to put the shoe on the other foot!

Tonight’s main event, Cody takes on a mystery opponent of Rollins’ choosing! What does he say to that?! Fans again chant, “YES! YES! YES!” Cody says, “Look at me. I think you already know the answer. I think they already know the answer. I didn’t come back to WWE to run from challenges. So absolutely YES.” Rollins smiles, and gives a thumbs up. Has he just suckered Cody into a trap?

 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Sasha Banks & Naomi VS Liv Morgan & Rhea Ripley!

It’s BOSS GLOW TIME! But will Team Bad still be feeling good after tonight? Or will #Liv4Brutality leave with the gold?

Raw returns and the challengers make their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if Sasha & Naomi live a nightmare!

Rhea starts against Sasha, they circle, and Rhea deflects a dropkick to give a dropkick! She puts Sasha in a corner, RAMS into her then RAMS her shoulder in more. Liv tags in, Rhea whips her in for a back body block! Liv snapmares and then wheelbarrows with Rhea, for a SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Liv brings Sasha up but Sasha JAWBREAKERS! Liv comes back but the springboard is denied! Sasha blocks a kick to KNEE Liv down, then tags to Naomi. They double wrench, for DOUBLE SOLE FOOD! Then a DOUBLE KICK takes Liv down! Cover, TWO! Liv survives that onslaught but Naomi tags Sasha.

Sasha goes up to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Naomi DECKS Rhea for good measure, then Sasha tags Naomi back in. They go out after Liv to POST her together! Then they CROSSBODY Rhea, but Rhea catches Sasha to CLOBBER Naomi with her! Liv gets Naomi, WING CLIPPER into the POST! Rhea gives Sasha RIPTIDE to the barrier! Rhea and Liv have taken control as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Rhea has Naomi in body scissors. Naomi endures the squeezes, fights and pushes back to a cover, TWO! Rhea CLOBBERS Naomi! Rhea tags Liv, then Rhea Electric Chair Lifts Naomi while Liv climbs. ELECTRIC CHAIR BULLDOG! Wasn’t the cleanest, but Liv covers, TWO! Liv tries again, TWO! Liv is frustrated but then Naomi gets her for a ghost pin, TWO! Liv kicks and KICKS and ENZIGURIS! Naomi ends up on the ropes, Liv runs in but no Oblivion! Rhea tags in before the backslide, so the cover doesn’t count! Naomi springboards but Rhea catches her, so Liv can POWERBOMB her!

Rhea hurries to haul Naomi up, pump handle! Sasha gets in but Liv intercepts! RIPTIDE as Sasha gives Liv a BACKSTABBER! Cover, Sasha breaks it in time!! Buffalo is fired up as all four women are down! Rhea gets up to toss Sasha out! Naomi dodges Rhea, springboards, FLYING CHUCK! Sasha tags in, the champs coordinate, CODE BREAKER to BUBBA BOMB! Jackknife, the champs win!!

Winners: Sasha Banks & Naomi, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions)

Team BAD stays on top and head out with belts in hand! Does any team on either brand stand a chance against them? As for Rhea and Liv, they regroup and Liv tries to explain she was out of commission. She wants Rhea to understand, and Rhea does her best to stay calm. But she says Liv failed the team! Liv says Rhea just needs to cool off, but then Rhea ATTACKS! She knocks Liv down, fires off hands from all sides, then laughs before she hauls Liv up! RIPTIDE!! Buffalo boos but Rhea storms off. Is Rhea done with tag teams once and for all?

 

Backstage interview with Rhea Ripley.

Sarah asks why Rhea did that to Liv. But Rhea asks Sarah, “What entitles you, or anyone else, to an explanation?” Rhea storms off, and that’s that.

 

Sonya Deville heads to the ring!

She’s in her suit so she’s all business, but she’s also the next challenger to the Raw Women’s Championship. How will she abuse her power now? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Sonya has the mic to say, “As of late, I have heard chatter throughout WWE-” Fans booing distracts Sonya, and she again says she has heard the chatter that she is misusing her power to become Bianca Belair’s challenger. First and foremost, she is a competitor. She didn’t just wake up one day and decide to become a WWE Official out of some quarter-life crisis. No, no. She was forced into this! She was forced into this until she could find her way back to being a WWE Superstar. Did she make the most of it? Use her natural gift and ability to lead those around her? Yes, she did!

But when she found a window of opportunity, she took it. When Bianca won the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania, Sonya knew that is who she’d want to be in the ring with. Bianca isn’t just the EST but the B E S T in the WWE. And that is who Sonya wants to beat and take the title off of! “The best and nothing less.” So fans can scrutinize her all we want, but the bottom line is that Bianca wanted a challenger and Sonya gave her one! “It’s nothing personal, it’s just business.” So if anyone has issue- Well, here comes Bianca! She storms her way right to the ring, and Sonya cuts off her music.

Sonya knows Bianca is all excited about the match, but standing here and now, Sonya is an official. So if Bianca lays even one finger on her, there will be consequences. Fans still want Bianca to do something, but Bianca just grabs the mic. “Y’know what, Sonya? I’m ready to put my hands on you once you’re not acting like a WWE official, so how ’bout we have this title match right here tonight? Let’s go!” Sonya says no, she didn’t wait three years to have her opportunity to have it in some rusted out suburb of New York! So it won’t happen here in Buffalo. It’ll happen somewhere where Bianca will really hate losing.

Sonya says it’ll be next week in Bianca’s hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee! And this is helping Bianca out! Because when she loses, her family will be there as shoulders to cry on. At this point, they’re so used to her losing titles quickly anyway, right? Oh, what is it? Does Bianca wanna say something? Bianca spins Sonya around to scoop her! Sonya shouts for Bianca to put her down, or she will suspend her and strip the title away! So Bianca flings Sonya away! Sonya is flustered and furious, what consequences will she make Bianca face? Or will she just let it slide in order to get that title match next week?

 

Veer Mahaan VS ???

The Lion with the million dollar arm dominated and demolished Dominik Mysterio, and showed absolutely no remorse. Will he do the same thing all over again to whoever is in the ring with him tonight?

Raw returns and Buffalo’s own Jeff Brooks is Veer’s vict- er, opponent! The bell rings, Brooks rushes in but Veer TOSSES him to a corner! Then fires off body shots then TOSSES Brooks across the way! Veer roars and looms over Buffalo Brooks. Brooks throws body shots, runs, but into a POUNCE! Then Veer scoops him for a SIDEWALK SLAM! But this isn’t the end, Veer just drags Brooks up for the MILLION DOLLAR LARIAT! And then, a BIG hip drop into the CERVICAL CLUTCH! Brooks taps, Veer wins!

Winner: Veer Mahaan, by submission

But just like with Dom, he’s not done with Brooks! Veer clamps the clutch back on, referees and officials rush out, and Veer lets off, only to go back for more! Veer wants to break Brooks!! The officials drag Veer off Brooks and Veer storms off into the night!

 

Sonya Deville finds Adam Pearce backstage.

Pearce finishes up a phone call and Sonya complains about Bianca putting her hands on her! Yes, Pearce saw that. So then what are the consequences? They better be severe! Pearce says those are being handled, but Sonya needs to worry about herself. What’s that supposed to mean? That the higher ups are officially investigating her conduct. Uh, she has been by the book since day one, and yet she’s being investigated? Not the champion who just assaulted her? Pearce assures Sonya that Bianca is being fined. How much? 50K? 100? A million? Sonya would give her the biggEST fine ever, but probably not, huh?

Bianca walks in and Sonya says no, this is official business, so she can see herself out. Okay, okay, Sonya. Bianca is here to pay the fine. Of one dollar. Here you are, Pearce. And she’s learned her lesson. Sonya is furious! Just $1!? And yet Sonya is abusing her power? Hey, he did it by the book. Sonya tastes some of her own medicine, but will she get a whole lot more of it next week?

 

Jeff Brooks is also being stretchered out.

Just as Dom was last week, one of Veer’s victims needs to go to the hospital.

 

Kevin Owens heads to the ring!

The Prizefighter is here to host a very special KO Show! He’s going to get to the bottom of things, as he plans on giving “Ezekiel” a lie detector test! Is Ezekiel who he says he is? Or will we learn the truth? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Chad Gable joins Kevin on his show. Kevin wants to make it very clear that he despises liars! Who doesn’t, right? But we have a “new” superstar calling himself Ezekiel and fraudulently claiming to be Elias’ younger brother. Kevin happens to know that is a lie, that IS Elias. So tonight, Kevin will expose him as the fraud he is, and that he is the only one sane enough to know it. Hence, the lie detector test. Kevin would do this himself, but to show this isn’t biased or rigged, Kevin got the smartest man in the WWE Universe to administer the test. Not only will Gable expose Elias, he’ll beat him in a match right after!

Ladies and gentlemen, the man with a 2.0 GP- No, no, 4. Oh, FOUR point 0 GPA, “Master” Chad Gable! Gable says A THANK YEW for having him back on the KO Show. And tonight, in line with the scientific method, Gable will stay unbiased and discover the truth if “Ezekiel” is who he says he is. And if he lies, Gable will beat the truth out of him after! Money well spent! Kevin loves everything about this. So then, please welcome ELIAS. The man in question makes his way out to the ring, and takes his seat. Kevin welcomes Elias to the show, and Ezekiel says he appreciates all this, but again he has it all wrong. He IS Ezekiel.

NO! No you’re not! You are Elias. Let’s just get past this. Elias had the guitar, the beard, asked people if they wanted to walk with him, that’s this guy. Ezekiel says he wants to take the test, but before he does, he has one question for everyone here in Buffalo. Who wants to here Zeke speak? DON’T! It’s just the same! Nevermind, just hook him up, we’ll get to the bottom of this. This is a computer, the best money can buy. We ready? Get it good. Is it crooked? Well, that’s good enough. Gable starts with some control questions to get a baseline. Buffalo, all your babbling is interfering, so please just SHOOSH!

First question, answer correctly: Is the sky blue? Yes. Okay, that’s the truth. Second question, answer incorrectly: Is tonight Monday? No. SEE? LIAR! No, Kevin, Gable made sure he’d lie on purpose here. Oh. Carry on. Okay, third question: Is Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson a spoiled brat who messed with the wrong guy!? Chad, Chad, focus! This isn’t about you! Kevin is paying 180 Canadian dollars for this. Right, sorry, that’s good money. So yes or no, is your real name Ezekiel? Kevin stares Ezekiel down and tells him to answer. Fans cheer, “YES! YES! YES!” and Ezekiel says “yes.” Wow, it’s the truth…

What?! NO! Kevin won’t accept this! Ask him why he lying! No, it doesn’t work that way. It has to be yes or no. Okay, so… Yes or no: Is Elias his older brother? Again, fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” Ezekiel says yes, and the machine can’t find the lie! Kevin is angry! Ask better! YOU ask! What is Kevin even after? Kevin asks, “Is your real name Elias?” “No!” And that’s true, too! Is he paying Gable more? Chad says he is a man of integrity. Sorry, but all signs point to the fact that this IS Ezekiel! Kevin says Gable is being made into a fool! No more of this! Kevin’s not paying!

But now Ezekiel says he has had enough. No more Law & Order here, being called a liar by the biggest liar in the WWE! This is a big night! Ezekiel’s in-ring debut is here in Buffalo! No, Kevin doesn’t care about this test! It doesn’t matter how Elias/Ezekiel figured a way around it! Or that he’s having his “first match” here in “Canada’s landfill,” Buffalo, New York! Oh no, he said mean things~! But what matter sis the truth! Kevin is getting the truth right now! Ezekiel admits he is Elias, or else! Or else what? Ezekiel stares Kevin down, and Kevin leaves! But then Gable CLOBBERS Ezekiel from behind! So much for integrity!

Ezekiel VS Chad Gable!

Raw returns and the bell rings. Ezekiel CLOBBERS Gable and fires off in a corner! Gable tries to hit back, but Ezekiel TOSSES him across the way! Then runs in to BOOT Gable out of the ring! Ezekiel goes out to CHOP Gable, and brings him up to GOURD BUSTER Gable on the steps! Gable flounders, Ezekiel puts him in the ring, and Ezekiel sits him up to kiss him on the head. Ezekiel then runs to SLIDING FOREARM! Cover, TWO! Gable gets to a corner but Ezekiel CHOPS him again! And CHOPS again! Ezekiel whips, Gable reverses and blocks a boot to put that leg in the ropes, DRAPING DRAGON SCRWE to the other leg!

Gable gets the bad leg, KNEE JAMMER! And then another DRAGON SCREW! And then another KNEE JAMMER! And then he YANKS the leg! Ezekiel clutches the knee, but Gable brings him up to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Gable is annoyed and tells fans to SHOOSH! Gable drags Ezekiel to a spinning toehold, and Ezekiel’s shoulders are down. The ref counts, ONE as Ezekiel sits up. Ezekiel kicks with his free leg but Gable redoes the spinning toehold. But Ezekiel boots Gable up and out! Gable skins the cat, but runs into a kick! And a CHOP! Ezekiel whips, then CLOBBERS Gable!

Ezekiel DECKS Gable, whips him but Gable blocks! Ezekiel reverses back, goes up but Gable catches him! Ezekiel still mule kicks Gable away, looking a lot like his brother there! But then Gable catches Ezekiel for an EXPLODER! Gable goes up the corner, for a MOONSAULT into a boot! Ezekiel gets up, and hits a SPINEBUSTER! “Who wants to speak with Zeke?!” HALF CRAB! Gable endures, but Otis appears and CLOBBERS Ezekiel!

Winner: Ezekiel, by disqualification

The Dozer knocks Ezekiel down again, and he helps his mentor up. Ezekiel still wins his in-ring debut, but it rings rather hollow. Will Ezekiel have beef to settle with the Alpha Academy? Will he call on his brother to help him?

 

RKBRO VS The Street Profits!

The Viper & The Stallion put the Usos in their place on SmackDown, but they’re back on Raw because teams are still coming for these titles. Will Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins prove they should be in the conversation of undisputed tag team champions? Or will Randy Orton & Matt Riddle make sure Backlash stays as is?

Raw returns and the Profits make their entrance. The teams sort out and Dawkins starts with Orton. They circle and tie up, then Orton headlocks. Orton grinds Dawkins down but he fights up and powers out. Orton runs Dawkins over, then strikes his signature pose. Fans fire up and Riddle applauds, but then Dawkins hurdles and hurdles and FLYING ELBOWS Orton down! Ford fires up as Dawkins stirs it up! Dawkins waits on Orton, they circle again and feel things out. Orton kicks low, EuroUppers Dawkins down, then tags Riddle. Orton snapmares, and he stomps Dawkins’ hand! Riddle stomps the other hand, then they both stomp the feet!

RKBRO then coordinates, ASSISTED FLOATING BRO! Cover, TWO! Riddle keeps on Dawkins with a headlock. Dawkins fights up, powers him to ropes, and Ford tags in. Dawkins ducks and Ford dropkicks Riddle! Ford then mocks Orton’s pose before he covers, TWO! Ford keeps on Riddle with an armlock. Riddle gets up but Ford wrenches to a back suplex! Ford then hurries to a corner and climbs up top, but Riddle gets up after him first! SUPER SPANISH FLY!! Even Orton’s shocked as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Ford clinches Riddle. Riddle throws body shots to get free, but Ford starts trading shots with him! Fans rally as the forearms fly, and Riddle gets the edge! Fans fire up, Riddle blocks a kick but not the ENZIGURI! But then Riddle gets up to ROUNDHOUSE! Ford falls back, Dawkins tags in! Dawkins keeps Riddle from Orton but Riddle boots him away! Hot tag to Randy! Orton rallies with big clotheslines, then he ducks to POWERSLAM! Fans fire up with Orton as he then has Dawkins on the apron! Riddle FINAL FLASH KNEES Ford, and RKBRO get the Profits for DOUBLE DRAPING DDTS!

Riddle kips up and Buffalo is thunderous! Orton tags in Riddle, and he lets Riddle hear those voices! Riddle wants Dawkins to get up, but Ford is waving to someone! The USOS?! The music hits, but no Jimmy or Jey. Ford DROPKICKS Orton off the apron, and Dawkins ROCKS Riddle with a right! Dawkins whips Riddle to a corner, but Riddle goes up! Dawkins catches him, Ford tags in and climbs, DOOMSDAY BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, Profits win!!

Winners: The Street Profits, by pinfall

Ford & Dawkins used the specter of the Usos against RKBRO! Ford gets a mic to say, “What happened? I wonder who would cue the Usos music at this misfortunate time for RKBRO.” But let that be a lesson to everyone! Usos ain’t the only team to worry about! They’re the Street Profits! They are up, and they want the smoke! RKBRO realizes the trick, and are furious! Will Orton & Riddle make the Profits pay for stooping so low?

 

Edge and Damian Priest speak.

The Archer of Infamy says, “I’m sure you’re all asking yourselves, ‘What was that last Monday? Why are Edge and Damian Priest so set on making AJ’s life so, so miserable?’ Well apparently, you all need to be reminded as to who the hell we are.” The Iconoclast says that’s right. “Last week was mind games, and this side of me has always been there, it’s just been dormant. These seeds were planted over 20 years ago when I was in The Brood, the Ministry of Darkness. But how soon you all forget.” This version of Edge is much more dangerous, and those seeds will be watered by their opponent’s tears.

So why is this happening? You can’t get it through your Cro-Magnon skulls, AJ Styles is too stupid to figure it out, but it’s real simple. These two haven’t lived up to their true destinies. They haven’t lived up to what life’s given them. Here’s an example: Last year, WrestleMania, Damian Priest played supporting role to Bad Bunny. Priest was the glue but the bunny got the credit. Without Priest, Bunny would’ve been smeared on the mat like a Picasso painting. And yet Priest didn’t have a Mania match and the fans all have to ask why this is happening? And what does Edge have to complain about? Well where to begin?

Edge, a WWE Hall of Famer, had to ask someone to step up for a Mania match! And unlike the Bills and Sabers, Edge wins championships! And yet, in spite of all that, after nine years being begged to come back, scratched and clawed to come back, all it took was two years for the WWE Universe to be filled with lemmings and malcontents with the attention span of a TikTok video to complain that Edge was this, that, part-timer! So Edge finally decided not to care what the fans thought, and to take back the pinnacle of this industry, Edge’s mountain of omnipotence! He and Priest will past judgement on anyone in his way. And the only one with the guts to even get in their way is Styles.

Apparently, Mania didn’t get the point across to Styles. So Edge is officially challenging Styles to a rematch for Backlash, and he will drive the point home like a stake to the heart! Edge speaks directly to Styles, and Styles will surely say this isn’t fair. Not that they care. They finally decided to seize the day! And what that means for everyone, especially Styles, is that it is their JUDGEMENT DAY! Edge and Priest share a laugh, and then we fade out. Will the Phenomenal One be sentenced to exile by this judge, jury and executioner?

 

Backstage interview with AJ Styles.

Sarah asks his response to what we just heard from Edge and Priest. Styles says it’s “Judge Edge” and “Big Bad Bailiff” Priest. First, Edge’s challenge is accepted! And second, Edge can save his judgement for- Wait, the lights are flickering. Then they go off! And when they come back, it’s all purple-blue as Edge and Priest are there! Styles tries to fight but that’s 2v1! Edge and Priest mug Styles, then THROW him into the wall! Priest even KICKS Styles in the ribs, and Edge opens a locker to put Styles’ arm in it! Edge SLAMS the door shut again and again! Styles gets his arm free but the damage has been done! Edge and Priest laugh again, and then disappear. Will Styles be able to survive such a disadvantage?

 

WWE United States Championship: Finn Balor VS (Austin) Theory!

The Prince has been on the bad end of ambushes and blindsides by Vince McMahon’s newest pet project, but now it comes to a head! Either Balor gets payback for everything the man formerly called Austin has done to him, or Theory makes Vince the proudest he can be!

Raw returns as Finn makes his entrance. The introductions are made, the title is raised, and we see if WWE has a champion in Theory.

Balor and Theory circle and tie up. They go around, Balor gets an arm to wrench to a wristlock, but Theory kicks low. Theory headlocks, Balor powers out, but Theory runs him over. Theory flexes and says he’s the man, but Balor CHOPS him! Balor throws body shots, RAMS Theory with his shoulder again and again, then lets off at 4. Balor CHOPS again, snapmares and KICKS Theory in the back, then COHPS him in another corner. Balor whips corner to corner, and CHOPS Theory down! Theory gets up to scoop for a BACKBREAKER! Theory snarls, he rains down fists on Balor, then covers, TWO!

Theory clamps on with a chinlock to grind Balor down. Balor endures, fans rally up, and Balor fights to his feet, only for Theory to throw him down by his head! Cover, TWO, but Theory is back on the chinlock. Balor endures as Theory leans on the hold, and he fights his way back up. Balor JAWBREAKERS free, then runs, but Theory follows to trip him up and drag him out to the apron! DRAPING NECKBREAKER to the floor! Theory seethes but he stands tall while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Theory has Balor in a chinlock. Balor fights up, but Theory manages to wrangle him back down. Balor endures as Theory leans on the hold, and he fights back up. Fans rally, Balor wrenches but Theory knees low to snapmare and jumping stomp! Theory talks trash but Balor BOOTS him from the corner! Balor rallies with forearms and a whip but Theory reverses, only for Balor to FLYING FOERAM! Then trip and DOUBLE STOMP! Buffalo fires up and Balor runs in to CHOP Theory again! Balor whips corner to corner, Theory reverses and scoops, SPIN OUT SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO!

Balor clutches his neck but he’s still in this. Theory drags Balor up, LARIATS Balor down, then eggs him on. Theory drags Balor up, for another LARIAT! Fans boo but Theory soaks up the heat. Theory drags Balor up, reels him in again, but Balor slips around to DDT! Both men are down and fans fire up! Balor then runs in to KICK Theory against ropes! Theory goes to the apron, Balor drags him up and suplexes. Theory blocks, throws body shots, then HOTSHOTS Balor away! Theory slingshots in, but dropkick becomes POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! Theory survives his mistake, but both men are down as fans rally up.

Balor and Theory get up, Theory storms over but Balor KICKS him! And CHOPS him! And KICKS again! Theory throat chops! Theory then bumps Balor off buckles, talks trash while he stalks him, but Balor wheelbarrows to victory roll and stomp away! The ref counts as they’re at ropes, but Balor lets off to fire up the fans! Balor runs to SLINGBLADE Theory down! Then he aims again, SHOTGUN! Theory hits buckles then falls to the drop zone! Balor hurries to the corner and up top! But Theory trips Balor up! Fans boo but Theory springs right up, ARABIAN PRESS SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Balor survives and Theory is furious!

Theory says he’s the man! Fans boo, Theory calls his shot, #ATownDown. Theory gets Balor up, but Balor slips out to ELBOW DROP DDT! Balor then clotheslines Theory out of the ring! Balor runs and FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp! Balor hobbles up, fans rally and he gets Theory in the ring. Balor then goes up top again, OCUP DE- NO! Theory moves, hurries to get Balor up, A T L!! Cover, Theory wins!

Winner: (Austin) Theory, by pinfall (NEW WWE United States Champion)

Vince McMahon’s investment pays off in gold! Theory admires the prize, and out come the Hurt Business, the Alpha Academy, Commander Azeez and T-Bar to help him celebrate! And of course, here comes Vince McMahon himself! Theory goes up the ramp to take a celebration selfie with his mentor! With the Chairman’s backing, is there nothing Theory won’t do in the WWE?

 

Seth Rollins walks around backstage.

“Twitter is a wild place.” But Kevin Patrick walks over to ask Rollins about Cody’s match tonight against someone of Rollins’ choosing. Has he made a decision yet? Rollins laughs and says he has. Then will he share that with us? What? Is KP dim? Does no one get how this works? AT Mania, Rollins was in the middle of the ring, still no idea who he’d be facing. Cody needs to feel the exact same way tonight! Or else it doesn’t work! What doesn’t KP understand? Oh, oh, wait. Rollins checks something on his phone. Cody’s opponent has responded! Who is this that Rollins is communicating with? Guess we’ll have to wait until the main event.

 

R-Truth heads to the ring!

Tonight, the “certified marriaging guy” presides over the “Double Commitment Ceremony!” AKA a double wedding! The 24/7 Championship is perched on a nice little pedestal, will anyone try and ruin this night by taking that title from Dana Brooks? Or will she and Reggie, as well as Akira Tozawa and Tamina, all live happily-ever-after after tonight?

Raw returns, and the grooms and their bridal parties are present. On Tozawa’s side are Nikki A.S.H, and on Reggie’s side are Los Lotharios. Truth wants everyone to simmer down and zip it! Not just because your fly is down, Reggie. What?! GOTTEE! Okay, let’s be for real for real. Before we bring the lovely brides out, let us all remember, and that means every single one of you single, conniving snakes in the grass, that there is an R-TRUCE in effect. During this ceremony, involving Reggie and Dana, and Tamina and Tozawa, the 24/7 title is off-limits. Aight, guys, this is Truth’s first time, go easy.

“BUFFALO, NEW YORK! WHAT’S UP?!” Make some noise for Dana and Tamina! The music plays, and here come the brides~, all dressed in white~! Dana is first, and Nikki doesn’t look impressed. Tamina sorta storms out with Sasha and Naomi helping with the train. Team BAD in full affect here! Truth says these girls should be on Corn Flakes boxes, they look GRRREAT! Doesn’t he mean Frosted…? Anyway, the grooms help their brides into the ring, and Truth gets Buffalo to applaud. Truth then welcomes the dear, honored and beloved guests, and all y’all schemers, too.

We are gathered here to join the union of Dana Brooks- No, it’s just Brooke. Oh… Brook-kuh and Reggie. As well as Tamina and Tozawa. So without any further instigations, punctuations or provocations, let’s get down to bidness. And don’t “What” him! Time for the vows! And make it come from the heart. “What?” From the heart! Dana takes out her notes, and Truth has the fans simmer down. She needs a minute! Y’all gonna get married one day, too! Dana tells Reggie, “You are my knight in shining armor. And from the first time you showed your willingness to sacrifice yourself for me, I knew you were a man of honor.”

“What?” He has integrity! And though it took time to become more than friends, Dana knew they were meant to be. Through the ups and the downs, their love has only grown stronger. Truth says he’s tearing up. Reggie’s turn. Reggie says that was beautiful. Buffalo gets rowdy and Truth says they’re making him look bad. He won’t get anymore gigs after this. They should let him finish then they can go “HEY~ HEY” all the want. Fans start that but he says not now, later! “Dana, you are a dream come true. A goddess with everything I could ever want. And everything we’ve been through, the trust issues, the temptations, all of it has put us on the path that got us to this moment. And it has only made our love stronger.”

That was deep, dog. Okay, Tamina- She just shouts “Akira! What she said.” What? That’s not allowed, is it? Well, Tozawa, your turn. “Tamina… Same.” These two know how to save time. Then before finalizing the commitments, are there any objections? Speak now or forever shut your traps! Fans all boo but he says they don’t count. TAMINA objects?! To what?! She drags Reggie over and trades him with Tozawa?! Tamina likes Reggie better? That wasn’t expected. But then Tamina changers her mind. She wants… DANA?! Fans go nuts and Truth says this is getting him fired! Is this even PG?

Tamina changes her mind again, and decides to stick with the one that brought her. So then, any final objections? Just keep ’em to yourselves. With the power in Truth’s vests, he pronounces them all, COMMITTED! Get to smooching! Oh, wait, rings. Show ’em! Oh, Reggie spent some money. Tozawa not so much… Left ring fingers and… Tozawa has to loosen his again. Now, this is official! Smooch! Tozawa and Tamina kiss, and then so do Reggie and Dana. They go all the way down, and Reggie is pinning Dana?! REGGIE WINS THE TITLE!

Winner: Reggie, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

But then Tamina CLOBBERS and SPLASHES Reggie! TAMINA WINS!!

Winner: Tamina, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Truth says this is messed up! But then Tozawa goes under the skirt to roll up Tamina! TOZAWA WINS!!

Winner: Akira Tozawa, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Truth is furious but Dana CROSSBODIES! Cover, Dana wins the title back!

Winner: Dana Brooke, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Dana becomes a runaway bride as Truth gives her a piggyback outta here! Does this count as an annulment?

 

Backstage interview with Bobby Lashley.

Sarah has Lashley watch a video message sent by MVP. “Bobby Lashley, you are about to realize exactly how… big the mistake you’ve made. Trying to hog all the glory and spotlight to yourself, riding into WrestleMania solo, without MVP. But that’s the past. I’ve moved on to bigger things, meaner things, stronger things, in the colossus, Omos. An athlete who is superior to you in every way. And now he’s sitting under my learning tree, and I’m teaching him all the things I taught you to become WWE Champion.” MVP made Lashley might, so what can he do with Omos?

While we’re figuring that out, Omos wants to challenge Lashley to a display of strength to humiliate him again. Maybe an arm-wrestling match? Omos says the All Might Era is coming to an end. Lashley says this is not surprising. MVP thinks he’s safe cuz he can hide behind Omos while talking trash. If Lashley wants after MVP, he has to go through Omos, and he will definitely do that. But MVP is right. Omos is big, strong and scary. But so is Lashley! Is he stronger? We’ll find out in that arm-wrestling match. Lashley accepts the challenge, and will show everyone why they still call Lashley the All Mighty.

 

Cody Rhodes VS ???

According to The Visionary, The American Nightmare must now feel what Rollins felt at WrestleMania 38. Cody makes his entrance, and will wait in the ring to learn who Rollins chose as his opponent. Will Cody be ready no matter who walks down the ramp? Or has the Architect perfectly planned his payback?

Raw returns and Rollins makes his entrance. “Ohhhhh yeaaaah~! It’s time, it’s time, it’s time for your main event! It’s time to show the world that you’re not as good as you think you are!” So without further ado, Rollins introduces Cody’s surprise opponent for the evening. It is a man of valor, a man who never backs down from a fight, and a former world champion! And that’s no lie. Rollins laughs, because here comes Kevin Owens! It seems these two made up as friends because they hug it out! Kevin then goes to the ring, will the Prizefighter be able to do Rollins’ dirty work?

The bell rings, the two circle, and Code gets a leg. Kevin gets to ropes, turns things around on Cody, and then headlocks. Cody endures, pries at the hold, but Kevin shifts to a waistlock. Cody pries the waistlock open to wrench and wristlock. Kevin kicks low, reels Cody in, but Cody lands out of the back suplex. Cody kicks low and drops, but Kevin blocks the Rhodes Uppercut! Kevin SLAMS the arm down, then mocks Goldust before he CLUBS Cody. Kevin COHPS and CLUBS Cody then stomps away at the ropes! The ref counts, Kevin lets off to bring Cody up and whip. Cody reverses and sends Kevin out, then DECKS him!

Cody builds speed to DIVE into a forearm! Kevin drags Cody out to FALL AWAY SLAM into barriers! Kevin roars as he stands over Cody, and then he soaks up the heat in the ring while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Kevin has Cody in a headlock. Cody fights up, Kevin turns it to a facelock but Cody throws body shots. Cody ROCKS Kevin but Kevin kicks low. Kevin throws Cody out, but Cody skins the cat! Cody rallies, dropkicks and Kevin goes to a corner. Cody whips corner to corner, Kevin reverses but Cody goes up and over. Kevin trips Cody to SENTON! Cover, TWO! Kevin is annoyed but he stomps Cody around. Kevin CLUBS Cody, KICKS him, then drags Cody up by an ear. Kevin mocks the fans cheering for Cody before he scoops and hits a BACKBREAKER! Kevin makes it a rack as he bends Cody against his knee.

Cody fights free but Kevin throws down elbows! Kevin pushes Cody against his knee again, but Cody endures. Kevin pushes Cody down, and he grins while fans rally up. Kevin knees Cody against ropes, then digs him into the ropes! The ref counts, Kevin lets off, and Cody gets to his feet. Kevin ROCKS Cody with a right, but Cody ROCKS Kevin back! Cody ROCKS Kevin, Kevin kicks low! Kevin reels Cody in to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Kevin brings Cody back up, reels him in, but Cody blocks the suplex this time. Cody suplexes Kevin for a GOURD BUSTER! Cody clutches his back but he brings Kevin in!

Kevin snapmares free and kicks low, DDT! Cover, TWO! Cody survives being spiked and Kevin grows frustrated. Kevin gets to a corner, climbs up top, and SWANTONS onto knees! Cody saves himself and Kevin gets out of the ring. Cody slips out the opposite side, and he runs into CLOBBER Kevin onto the announce desk! But then Rollins makes his return! The Visionary decided to watch this personally, and he smirks as he swaggers down the ramp while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more and Cody has Kevin up top! Kevin resists and fans rally up as the two brawl up there! Cody CLUBS Kevin, ROCKS him, but Kevin HEADBUTTS Cody down! Kevin adjusts, and FROG SPLASHES! Cover, TWO!! Cody survives but Kevin is right up top again, SWANTON BOMB! Direct hit this time, cover, TWO!! Rollins is beside himself that Cody survives! Kevin fumes and he drags Cody up, but Cody cradles! TWO, Kevin knees low and whips, POP-UP- RANA from Cody! And SUPERKICK! Kevin SUPERKICKS back! Cody LARIATS! Rollins is pacing while both men are down.

Buffalo rallies for Cody as he and Kevin go to opposite corners. Cody hobbles, runs in, but into a POP-UP POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Kevin is shocked and Rollins is furious! Cody survives but Kevin gets back to his feet. Kevin drags Cody back into a drop zone and he goes up again. Rollins says Kevin has this, but then Cody ROCKS Kevin! Kevin hits back, but Cody throws body shots! Cody climbs up, CLUBS away on Kevin’s back, but has to worry about his own. Cody tries to go up but Kevin fights back! Kevin elbows Cody, so Cody ROCKS Kevin! Cody climbs up once again, but into a SUPER FISHERMAN BUSTER from Kevin!

Rollins is fired up and Kevin crawls to a cover, ROPEBREAK! Cody manages to survive again and Rollins is angry again. Cody gets away to the far side but Kevin joins him on the apron. “This is Awesome!” but Cody resists the powerbomb to back drop Kevin onto the apron! Rollins is worried, and he wants the ring count to stop. Rollins coaches Kevin up but we’re at 5 of 10! Rollins tells Kevin to get his fat ass in the ring, but that just pisses Kevin off! Kevin storms up the ramp, Cody wins!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by count-out

Rollins insulted his friend and screwed up his own plan! But Cody himself is upset, he wanted to win in the ring. Cody goes up to celebrate either way, only for Rollins to shove him off! Cody crashes into barriers and Rollins soaks up all the heat! Will Rollins stoop to some serious lows just to get a win over Cody?


My Thoughts:

A pretty good Raw here to keep things going from last week. A really good opening segment from Rollins and Cody, and a very clever switcheroo from Rollins on to Cody. They didn’t really play up the aspect of who the mystery opponent could be, but in the end, Kevin Owens was really the only choice. Any Heel that could be a threat to Cody (Omos, Edge, Priest) is busy in their own stories anyway, so Kevin it is. That main event was great stuff, and I figured Cody would win, but it was a good cover to have Rollins insult Kevin and Kevin not care since he has his own stuff. Rollins standing tall to end the show was also a good move to really get some heat on this build.

Speaking of Kevin, his segment with Gable and Elias/Ezekiel was hilarious in all the right ways, and of course the totally kayfabe lie detector says Elias/Ezekiel is telling the truth. Gable VS Ezekiel was a very good match, and Otis attacking to give Ezekiel the win was also a smart move. I would love if Alpha Academy challenges Elias & Ezekiel to a tag match in an attempt to expose the lie. There are a few ways Elias/Ezekiel can get around that, from a fake Elias to Elias “unable to make it” and it becomes a handicap match, I can’t wait to see which one they go with.

Very good opening tag match for the women’s tag titles, but naturally Sasha & Naomi win. And likewise, Rhea turns on Liv over Liv letting her down. Maybe something circles back to where Nikki A.S.H. says she was right about Rhea. Liv will surely have a match with Rhea but I’m pretty sure Rhea wins that. There was also good continuity with Sasha & Naomi showing up for the double wedding, or “commitment ceremony.” Name it whatever you want, wrestling weddings never work out. But that doesn’t mean the segments are always bad, cuz I really liked this one. Well, I wish Buffalo wasn’t so rowdy, they were only prolonging it since Truth kept shushing them.

But of course things turn into a 24/7 Championship scramble with Dana still holding onto the title to end the night. Would’ve been more impactful if someone else kept the belt. Then Dana can chase that person down for once. It would’ve been fun if it was Tamina, because then Team BAD would all have titles. The US Championship choice was disappointing. I get that Theory is Vince’s favorite now, both kayfabe and shoot, but it cuts storytelling out at the knees for Theory to be a champion this easily. Vince should be disappointed, Theory gets more desperate, and Theory goes nuts in order to redeem himself. But no, Theory wins, he and Vince celebrate, Vince doesn’t give a damn about Finn in kayfabe or shoot.

Veer victimizes a jobber tonight, and pretty sure he’ll do so again next week to cue Rey Mysterio calling him out. Now, I’m sure Rey will put Veer over but it’ll have to be one hell of a match first. Omos VS Lashley in an arm-wrestling match before their Backlash rematch is a fine way to build this. It’ll probably turn into a brawl, too. Edge and Priest had a good promo, though I can’t really say it added much to the story. Of course we were getting a Backlash rematch, but I suppose issuing the challenge was the only way to get Styles to be here so that the beatdown would happen. Maybe the rematch will be given a stipulation to ramp it up from Mania.

We got really good stuff out of the other titles, though. Sonya facing some karma is great stuff, it really builds off what she was doing on SmackDown. Pearce is clearly becoming the Face authority figure to counter Sonya. But I’m sure this will only motivate Sonya to try and spin this against Pearce so that “upper management,” aka Vince, will actually side with her. Then, RKBRO VS Profits was great stuff, and the Profits had an incredibly clever way of tricking Orton & Riddle. I’m sure we’ll get more Profits VS RKBRO or Usos, but I would really hope Backlash stays 2v2. You can’t really be the undisputed best tag team in WWE if you pinned some third team and not the other show’s champions.

My Score: 8.3/10

It’s the Revolution Zero Hour!

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Willie Mack, Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of The Mack, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The teams sort out and Austin starts against Brother Zay. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” and Austin circles with Zay. Jarrett coaches Zay up and he ties up with Austin. Austin headlocks, grinds the hold, Sonjay offers fist bumps to the commentary team. Zay slips around to headlock Austin but Austin powers out. Zay ducks ‘n’ dodges and squealing DROPKICKS! Zay kips up and the fans join in on “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Things speed up, Zay whips but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges, then he BOOTS Zay down! Austin says “SHOTS! SHOTS!” and the fans join in! Zay is annoyed, he swings but misses and Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and two-steps to DECK Zay!

Austin brings Zay up, brings him over, and tags in Colten. The Gunns whip, body shot and knee lift! Then Colten CLOBBERS Zay! “Guns up!” The fans join in again as Colten says “SHOTS!” Zay tags Quen, Quen circles with Colten, then gets around to CLUB him! Quen RAMS Colten into a corner, Sonjay talks smack, and Quen whips corner to corner. Colten reverses then back drops Quen away! Quen squeals like Zay! Colten DROPKICKS Quen down and then tags in Caster. Caster brings Quen up, scoops, staggers, but he still SLAMS Quen down. Tag to Bowens and he goes up, to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS!

The fans fire up while Bowens covers, TWO! Bowens says guns up, and then he brings Quen around. Tag to Colten, they mug Quen and Colten clamps onto an arm. Quen fights up, pulls hair, and he puts Colten on the ropes. The ref counts, Quen lets off, but Lethal HOTSHOTS Colten! Quen DROPKICKS Colten down! Fans boo but Quen tags in Jarrett. They mug Colten, and Double J stomps Colten to ropes. Jarrett runs, pulling the ref’s attention, which allows Karen to CHOKE Colten before the STRADDLE ATTACK! Fans boo more as Jarrett starts up the Fargo Strut, and everyone on his team joins in on the outside!

Jarrett stomps Colten around then tags in Lethal. Jarrett whips Colten to kick low, Lethal hits the SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Lethal soaks up the heat, kicks at Austin, then goes back to Colten. Tag to Mack and the fans finally have reason to cheer. Mack whips and LARIATS Colten down! Mack keeps Colten from BBSG, then tags in Quen. Quen drops knees, and fans actually chant, “Let’s Go, Colten!” Colten endures, fights up, but Quen snapmares him down. Tag to Kassidy for the slingshot SENTON! Zay then taunts BBSG before he stomps away on Colten. Zay clamps on a chinlock but Colten endures.

The fans rally, Colten fights up, and he throws body shots! Colten gets free but Zay CLUBS him! Zay kicks, Colten blocks, but he gets the DRAGON WHIP! Tag to Quen and Private Party coordinate. Quen is the stepstool, Zay runs up, but Colten dodges! Party in Motion hits the rest of the team! Zay & Quen panic, they get Colten’s legs but he BOOTS them away! Hot tag to Bowens! The Five Tool Player rallies on Private Party! ROLLING ELBOW for Quen, ROLLING ELBOW for Zay! Lethal runs in but he gets Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK! Bowens ROCKS Quen to run and FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Sonjay gets on the apron, Bowens DECKS him!

Karen distracts the ref while Jarrett runs up, Bowens dodges, but into the LETHAL COMBINATION! Quen covers, TWO! Quen drags Bowens up and tags in Satnam! Satnam CHOPS Bowens, brings him around, and then TOSSES him across the ring! Bowens tumbles, Satnam drags him back over and tags Lethal back in. Lethal dusts off his hands and smiles, then he brings Bowens up. Lethal suplexes and holds Bowens up for a count of TEN before the SLAM! Lethal grins at Billy then goes back to Bowens. Tag to Jarrett and Triple J whips. Bowens reverses but Lethal stops himself, Jarrett RUSSIAN LEG SWEEPS!

Jarrett stomps away on Bowens, says he’s going nowhere, then whips him to ropes. Bowens KICKS back, both men stagger, and Jarrett runs up! Bowens ROCKS Jarrett again and again and again! The fans fire up as Bowens runs, but Jarrett ELBOWS him! Jarrett runs to STRADDLE the ropes as Bowens moves! Jarrett hobbles, Bowens BOOTS him then goes up to BLOCKBUSTER! The fans fire up as both men are down! Switchblade coaches Bowens, the fans rally for him, too, and Bowens crawls over! Jarrett also crawls, hot tags to Mack and Billy! Daddy Ass rallies on Mack, Lethal, Private Party, and he even DECKS Satnam!

Billy tells the One in a Billion to “SUCK THIS!” and then he SPLASHES Mack in a corner! Billy brings Mack out, kicks low and tells him “SUCK IT!” But Satnam trips him up! Mack hits a STUNNER, followed by a LETHAL INJECTION! Zay hurries up top to SWANTON BOMB! Quen adds on a 450 SPLASH!! Mack hurries to cover, TWO!! Billy survives and shocks #TriplePartyJay! The BBSG drag them all out and send them into barriers, but then Mack goes up! Mack SIX-STAR FLOPS as Billy moves! White is there, hot tag to King Switch! And he drags Mack up for the BLADE- NO, Zay springboards in!

White dodges Zay, Zay turns around into the 3:10 TO YUMA! But Quen CROSSBODIES the Gunn Sons! But then Quen turns around into THE ARRIVAL! Caster goes up for the MIC DROP!! Jarrett drags Bowens out and sends him into railing! Satnam storms in and White gets face to chest with the giant! But then Billy has White hold on. Billy is big but still not Satnam big! Satnam shoves them both away, DECKS Bowens, then grabs Caster! Satnam TOSSES Caster, then SHOVES Austin! White CHOP BLOCKS him, but Satnam stays up!? Billy kicks low and White CHOP BLOCKS again, they finally get the giant on his knees!

The fans fire up as White sets Satnam up for a FAMOUSER!! Mack returns to SUPERKICK Billy! White gets Mack again, BLADERUNNER!!! Cover, BBSG wins!!

Winners: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang, by pinfall

#TriplePartyJay tried to use the numbers game, but not even they could stop this super six pack from flexing their guns! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions stand tall together once again, and White gets the mic. “Yo! Yo! YO!” White is copying Max as he says, “Listen! See, Max? It’s not that hard. Oh yeah, guns up for my Greensboro Gold Members~!” Now, White is always telling the gang about how much he loves Greensboro. It’s one of his favorite cities in the world! The fans appreciate that, and White continues to say that Greensboro has some of the greatest wrestling fans!

The fans again cheer, and White says hey, what better place to have an event like Revolution? And there’s a lot of action tonight! Will Ospreay is here! Who walks out the AEW World Champion? Fans chant “JOE! JOE! JOE!” so that answers that. Oh oh oh oh, who is ready for Sting’s last match, huh? The fans sure are! A very big night, kicking off the biggest way possible with the Bang! Bang! Scissor! Gang! The two best trios, the single best six man team, and the GREATEST faction in the GREATEST wrestling company, AEW! The fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and White says BBSG is led by one of the greatest of all time.

White can remind any of us, that on any given day, at any given moment, just who he is. He’ll remind us why he is the Catalyst of Pro-Wrestling! He’ll remind us to Breathe with the Switchblade! The fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Switchblade~!” White says in ten days time, AEW Dynamite in Boston, maybe he handles some Big Business of his own! Fans like the sound of that. But until then, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed. And if you ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! The Switchblade is taking aim at something, two guesses what title he wants to add to the collection.

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Lexi Nair is with Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor, but also Doc Sampson, because we need a medical update on the International Champion before his match with Roderick Strong tonight. Doc says as we know, Cassidy has been getting beat up the last few months, and that Doc keeps telling Cassidy to tape up that back and ribs. Tonight, it happens or he isn’t being cleared. Then with all that said, how does Cassidy feel going into this? Trent speaks up that Cassidy always fights through it. And just like always, the boys have his back. Cassidy wants to talk to them about that, actually

Tonight, before, during and after, Best Friends need to stay in the back. Cassidy is sick and tired of seeing his friends getting hurt because of him, so he has to do this on his own. Chuck says yeah, he’ll keep the others back and respect Cassidy on this. Hands in, and even Doc and Lexi join in. Freshly Squeezed has support in spirit, but will that not help when The Undisputed Kingdom will stack the deck?

 

We hear from PAC!

The Bastard says, “Here we go again. A tale as old as time. The forgotten bastard! Where have you been, boy? None of your pissin’ business where I’ve been! Well, you tell me. Who said life’s so hard? Huh? Every man has his struggle. Do you think I don’t know the burden of shame? Isolated, blinded, broken. I almost popped me clogs. But I didn’t~! You’ll never get rid of me, Tony Khan! I’m like a cockroach, an indestructible little bastard, always lurking in the underbelly. I will be back very soon, whether you like it or not. And I am going to drag this festering scrotum of a company into a new age! Because I’m alive, ladies and gentlemen! And doesn’t it feel good to be alive?”

 

Zero Hour – Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Julia Hart & Skye Blue!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power have been meaning to settle things with the Princess of the Black Throne and her little sidekick for some time, so no better time than Revolution! Will Kris & Willow crush the TBS Champion and Chicago Skye? Or will Greensboro see The House Always Wins?

Buddy Matthews VS ???

The House of Black’s Aussie Juggernaut opens Collision on Revolution Eve, but wait! Mark Briscoe drags Buddy out of the ring! The fans fire up but no, Mark is NOT Buddy’s opponent! This is revenge for the beatdown just last week! Mark SMACKS Buddy off the steel steps while the ref reprimands, but then Mark brings out a table!

Malakai hobbles, Mark CHUCKS the chair into him! And Mark has the spike!! Mark storms up on Malakai while he’s down, and says this is payback! But then Buddy KNEES Mark down! Buddy saves Malakai, ROCKS Mark with forearms, then ROCKS him again. Buddy brings Mark up the ramp while throwing hands. Buddy underhooks, but Mark fights free! Mark back drops Buddy on the ramp!

Mark presses a button, and the flames from Buddy’s entrance literally fire up! Buddy almost gets burned! Security rushes in but Mark keeps throwing Buddy around! Mark shoves Buddy to where the flamethrower is!! But then security swarms him before he can get the switch! The House regroups and retreats before facing disaster! Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees. Sydal KICKS and Daniels BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Quen stays in this and Collision goes picture in picture.

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Zay brings Daniels up but Daniels throws body shots and forearms! Daniels runs but Zay LARIATS him down! Zay stays between Daniels and his corner, then he brings Daniels up to snapmare and chinlock. Zay grinds Daniels down, Daniels endures, and Collision returns to single picture. Sydal coaches Daniels as he fights up, and Daniels throws body shots. Zay CLUBS away on Daniels, shines the bald head, then kicks low. But Daniels stops the Twist of Fate! Zay comes back, into a FLATLINER! Both men are down and the fans rally up! Zay and Daniels crawl, hot tags to Quen and Sydal! Sydal DROPKICKS Quen!

Sydal JUMP KICKS Quen, ROUNDHOUSES him, then JUMP KICKS Zay! Sydal KICKS Quen, KICKS Zay, repeat! The fans fire up, Sydal dodges Private Party and DOUBLE RANAS! Then QUESTION MARK KICK for Zay! Quen swings but Sydal gets under to wrench and lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Quen is still in this and Sydal grows frustrated. Sydal basement dropkicks Zay into buckles, then he runs corner to corner at Quen. Quen dodges and the splash hits buckles! Zay runs in, but Sydal BOOTS! Sydal runs up but Kassidy ducks, Quen BOOTS Sydal! Quen reels Sydal in, Kassidy goes up, but SWANTON NECKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up and Quen can’t believe it! Quen calls to Zay, they get Sydal up to mug him. Private Party double whip, Sydal KICKS Quen then HEEL KICKS Zay, and a ROUNDHOUSE to Quen! Tag to Daniels and he JABS away on Private Party. Quen kicks low, Private Party double whip, but Daniels ducks the lariats! Sydal & Daniels LARIAT Private Party! The fans fire up as Sydal goes up and Daniels brings Quen around. Daniels underhooks but Kassidy saves Quen! Quen back drops free! Sydal leaps over Quen to METEORA Zay! Daniels is back up, but Quen dodges to Michael Jackson “HEE HEE~,” only for Daniels to dodge the Pele!

Daniels reels Quen in for ANGEL’S WINGS!! Cover, but wait, who’s storming down the ramp? It’s TRIPLE J! Jeff Jarrett and Sonjay Dutt distract the ref, while Jay Lethal gets in to give Daniels a LETHAL COMBINATION! Lethal drags Quen onto Daneils and now the ref sees the cover, Private Party wins!

Winners: Private Party, by pinfall

Quen & Zay get an assist from their future tag partners in Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Sonjay does his best to dance to the music, but will this dirty half dozen find a way to beat all the Six Man Champions tomorrow night?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Cassandra Golden!

Serena Deeb may be undefeated in her return, but so has La Mera Mera! The former AEW Women’s World Champion wants to get some gold again, will she make it 5-0 in 2024? Or will this Collision be Golden?

Because it’s my time. And remember, get a little closer, because you’re gonna get burned!” Is nothing and no one going to stop Rosa from taking a title in 2024?

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia VS Christian Cage, Killswitch/Luchasaurus, Brian Cage & Roderick Strong!

There are many titles on the line this Sunday, and the AEW International Championship and AEW TNT Championships are no exception! Freshly Squeezed will be facing the Savior of the Backbreaker while Captain Charisma will be facing the Dragonslayer, and let’s not forget the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Machine are both in the All-Star Scramble! Which quirky quartet captures some critical momentum just 24 hours away from Revolution?

The teams sort out and while Garcia is glaring at Christian, Christian of course backs down. Instead, we get Brian Cage and #JustTrent. They tie up, Cage shoves Trent to a corner but Trent dodges the clothesline. Trent CHOPS, Cage runs up but Trent dodges again to headlock. Cage powers up and powers out, then he runs Trent over! “Who betta than Cage, huh!?” Trent scrambles to his feet, talks it over with his corner, and tags in Garcia! Garcia dares Christian to step up but it’s Roddy who tags in instead. Roddy and Garcia circle but Roddy SPITS at Cassidy! Cassidy leaves that alone so Roddy and Garcia tie up.

Roddy and Garcia go around, Roddy wrenches through to wristlock. Garcia rolls, rolls and rolls to get free! The fans cheer as Garcia wags his finger. Garcia and Roddy feel things out, tie up, and Roddy wrenches to wrangle Garcia with another wristlock. Garcia fights up, but Roddy wrenches again.

My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
