NXT shares what Joe Gacy did after losing.

Two druids in red masks attacked Bron! They used a chair and an assisted DDT to take him out! Then they stretchered Bron out of the arena, and kidnapped him! Gacy says there are many forms of victory. This is not how their story ends. Gacy had his henchmen drag Bron out and Gacy says this is Bron’s moment to feel all alone. They left Bron out in the middle of nowhere! Will the NXT Champion be able to find his way back?


NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships: Toxic Attraction VS Wendy Choo & Roxanne Perez!

Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne did not like any of the pranks pulled by Wendy & Roxie for Spring Breakin’. But will they get their revenge by sending those two to the back of the line? Or will insult be added to injury when they lose the titles?

But wait, where is Wendy? Roxie points to a corner and Toxic Attraction turns around. Wendy is up top! TRIPLE CROSSBODY! She gets all three! Then Roxie reinforces Wendy and they go after Gigi & Jacy! Roxie DECKS Jacy while Wendy CLOBBERS Gigi! The teams regroup, Gigi starts against Wendy and the bell rings. Gigi runs in but Wendy drop toeholds her! Tag to Roxie and she hops up to ax handle Gigi down! Roxie wrenches an arm, tags Wendy, and Wendy goes up to ax handle Gigi for herself! Wendy wrenches Gigi, tags Roxie, and they double wrench to double mule kick! Gigi staggers, Roxie arm-drags her around!

Roxie ducks, dodges and tilt-o-whirls to roll Gigi up! TWO, but Roxie reels Gigi into a waistlock. Jacy tags in before the roll-up to then hit a NECKBREAKER! Jacy rains down rights then howls to fire up the fans. Jacy rains down elbows, taunts Wendy, then KICKS Roxie down. Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel, Jacy whips Roxie hard into the Toxic corner. Jacy drags Roxie, tags Gigi, and they stomp Roxie down. Gigi pulls hair to KICK Roxie in the back. Gigi taunts Wendy, drags Roxie up and whips her to the corner again. Tag to Jacy, Toxic Attraction digs their boots in but let off as the ref counts.

Jacy taunts Roxie as she stalks her. Jacy gets Roxie’s arms but Roxie resists. Jacy still gets the motorcycle stretch but Roxie endures. Fans rally, Roxie fights up, Mandy gets annoyed, and Roxie goes to arm-drag but Jacy uses that to swipe at Wendy! Wendy avoids it, and Roxie ducks under to tag her in! Wendy fires off hands and kicks and CLOBBERS Jacy! Wendy whips to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Fans fire up and Wendy handsprings to forearm smash! Wendy dodges Gigi’s cheap shot to DECK her! Then Wendy tosses Jacy out to join Gigi! Wendy holds the ropes open for Roxie to DIVE! Direct hit times two at the ramp!

Fans are fired up as NXT goes picture in picture. Roxie and Wendy fetch Jacy into the ring. But Mandy grabs at Wendy! Wendy swipes at her but Jacy CLOBBERS Wendy! Jacy tags Gigi, they mug Wendy, and then Gigi whips Wendy to ropes to ROCK her! Gigi laughs then whips but Wendy gets around to roll her up! TWO, and Gigi hits an STO! Cover, TWO! Gigi drags Wendy up, dribbles her off the mat, then pulls on the pigtails! The ref reprimands, Gigi lets off at 4, and then hip drops! Gigi drags Wendy up to bump her off buckles, and tags Jacy. Toxic Attraction mugs Wendy, then Jacy snapmares to KICK Wendy! Then SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Jacy stays on Wendy by pulling the pigtails and ramming a knee into Wendy’s back! And again! Cover, TWO! Jacy stomps Wendy but Wendy keeps crawling to Roxie. Jacy whips Wendy away, runs in and back body blocks! Tag to Gigi, and Jacy feeds Wendy to a LARIAT! Gig taunts Wendy and Roxie, then stands on Wendy’s pigtails while she pulls the arms! The ref counts, Gigi lets off to kick Wendy while she’s down. Gigi drags Wendy up to throw her by her hair! The ref reprimands but Gigi just taunts Wendy while kicking her. Tag to Jacy and Jacy stomps away. Jacy drags Wendy up but Wendy throws body shots!

Wendy backs Jacy down, reaches for Roxie, but Jacy KNEES Wendy down! Jacy smiles as she sits Wendy up for a straitjacket stretch! Wendy endures and NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally, Wendy fights up, but Jacy ripcords to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Jacy grows frustrated and she sits Wendy up for a cobra clutch. Wendy endures again, fights up, but Jacy ripcords again. Wendy gets out, waistlocks, but Gigi tags in! Wendy’s ready this time and she DECKS Gigi! JAWBREAKER for Jacy! Hot tag to Roxie! Roxie CLOBBERS Gigi, rallies with forearms, then dodges to THESZ PRESS! Roxie rains down fast hands and fires up!

Fans rally as Roxie body blocks then rolls to UPPERCUT! Roxie runs and tilt-o-whirls into a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Roxie keeps on Gigi as she drags her around and stomps her down. Tag to Wendy before Roxie drops a SENTON! SLEEPY ELBOW! Cover, Jacy SENTONS it apart! But Roxie throws Jacy out! Roxie then goes back to her corner, Wendy tags her in! Roxie gets Gigi back up, whips her to a corner but Gigi reverses. Gigi runs into a BOOT! Roxie hurries up top, but Mandy gets in the ring! Mandy helps Gigi up, and they get under Roxie’s dropkick! Wendy SPEARS Mandy and fires off!

Roxie kicks Gigi, hops on, but Jacy SUPERKICKS!! The ref misses that from getting Wendy and Mandy out of the ring! Gigi covers, Toxic Attraction wins!

Winners: Toxic Attraction, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions)

But Wendy is pissed! She fires off on the tag champs! But then Mandy CLOBBERS Wendy with the belt! Toxic Attraction all stomp away and mug Wendy! Mandy says Wendy will never look like her! She’s just a loser! But without Mandy, Gigi & Jacy would’ve been losers. Will Wendy and Roxie get revenge on Toxic Attraction soon enough?


Grayson Waller and Tiffany Stratton went on a shopping date.

He thanks her for this. He needed to unwind. Shopping is the best form of medicine. Especially after him losing to Nathan Frazer. Frazer got lucky! Stupid airhorn from Chase U! Those colors are so tacky. They’re a school of losers! And Bodhi’s a dork. But Grayson Waller gets his revenge on Andre Chase 1v1. The teachable moment will be that you don’t mess with the Grayson Waller Effect. But will the 21st Century Success Story be the one learning a little thing about respect and humility?


Roderick Strong is training in the Diamond Mine dojo.

The Creeds walk over and want to talk. Well, please tell him they’re not upset. They got the win! But Strong knew those guys were undefeated in NXT. But that match is tainted. It was supposed to be a test, right? But when the moment came, Strong interjected himself. It isn’t even about winning, but how they win. No more shortcuts! They’ll give the Viking Raiders a rematch, but they’ll do it the right way. Strong says he believes in them. He’ll bring in someone who has been wanting to join Diamond Mine. This guy will help the Creeds make it to those tag titles. Winner of Pan-American games, Division I Freestyle competitor, from the University of Minnesota, it’s DAMON KEMP! This guy is going to make you so much better.

Uh, new members were supposed to be a group decision. They’ll talk about Kemp later. But will Strong even hear his team out?


Joey Gacy heads to the ring.

But he isn’t going alone. His red druids who kidnapped and stranded Bron Breakker are with him. Gacy stands with them in the ring and he gets the mic. Fans chant, “Gacy Sucks!” but he says, “Bron Breakker, as I left you in the wilderness last week, I told you now you must face the next chapter of your journey all alone. My personal journey started in NXT months ago. I opened the door of inclusion to everybody. Anyone, no matter who they are, could be a part of real change. But two men separated themselves from the pack, and the rest are no more. These two proved their worth to me, and to themselves.”

Gacy says these men went above and beyond and committed themselves to his cause but taking that extra step. Fans tell Gacy to “Shut the Hell Up!” but Gacy says his message has been received. These two are the faces of change. Their expansion has begun! Change takes place one person at a time. So, he would like to appeal to NXT Champion, Bron Breakker. Consider this Bron’s personal invitation. Bron doesn’t have to do this alone. Join Gacy’s group and be part of his movement. Be part of the change. The result is eternal joy! And affliction and hardship awaits those who resist. But just who are these who joined Gacy’s side?


Bodhi Hayward coaches up Andre Chase.

If Grayson Waller wants to go viral, Chase will make him go viral. But then Sarray rushes in and brings up what Grayson and Tiffany had to say. Sarray can’t stand those two! She wants to team up with them to make it a mixed tag match! Please? Uh, Chase doesn’t know Japanese. Bodhi translates: she wants to turn the singles match into a mixed tag. Oh, that’s a great- Wait, Bodhi knows Japanese? Yes, he’s in Mr. Miller’s Japanese 202 class on Mondays and Fridays. Oh, nice. But the idea is, Sarray cannot forgive Tiffany or Waller, so she wants to tear them apart! Chase gets that one. They’re gonna go make that match happen! And Sarray says that’s a teachable moment!


Ivy Nile holds a fitness challenge!

Time to separate the men from the boys. If they can’t go, then they’ve gotta go. Drop down and give her as many push-ups as you can! They go all the way to 40, then 80. We start seeing some dropping out, and she promises that by the end of the night, she better not be the only one standing. Will any of these guys be able to keep up with the Female Titan?


The NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament entrants are introduced!

Nikkita Lyons, Arianna Grace, Roxanne Perez (still sore from earlier), Kiana James, Lash Legend (though she’s been here a minute), Tatum Paxley, and the two in the ring!

The NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament: Sloane Jacobs VS Fallon Henley!

For the first time ever, NXT offers a Breakout Contract to the Women’s Division! Will the winner of this match go all the way to win it all?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Fallon powers Sloane back then arm-drags her away. Fallon hurries to get Sloane with a waistlock, SLAM her down, and hold her down. Fans duel, Sloane fights up but Fallon headlocks. Sloane drags Fallon down to a cover, ONE! Sloane rolls Fallon up, ONE! Sloane leg cradles, TWO! Fallon dropkicks Sloan down and fans fire up. Fallon headlocks and grinds Sloane down. Sloane powers out but Fallon runs her over! Things speed up, Fallon avoids the dropkick and does a two step. Then Fallon runs in, gets around and whips. Sloane goes up and over, drops as Fallon comes back, and dropkicks her this time! Cover, TWO!

Sloane keeps on Fallon but Briggs & Brooks show up to cheer Fallon on. Fallon powers up with body shots, but Sloane redirects to BOOT Fallon down! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Fallon shoves Sloane away, BOOTS her then FACEBUSTESR! CALF KICK! Fans fire up and Fallon runs to slide and ROCK Sloane at the ropes! Briggs & Brooks high-five, then Fallon hurries in to cover. TWO, but Fallon clamps onto Sloane’s arm for a top wristlock. Sloane endures, fans rally up, and Sloane gets to her feet. Fallon CLUBS her, trips her, then gets the top wristlock back. Sloane still endures and fights while fans rally.

Sloane arm-drags free, JAWBREAKERS, then whips. Fallon reverses, back elbows, and runs, into DOUBLE FACEBUSTERS! Both women down and fans fire up. Sloane rolls away to a corner but Fallon runs in, into BOOTS! Sloane goes up to FLYING RANA! Sloane fires up, CLOBBERS Fallon then CLOBBERS her again! Sloane spins Fallon around to a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Fallon is still in this and Sloane grows frustrated. Sloane hauls Fallon up, fireman’s carries, but Fallon fights free. Cobra Clutch BACKBREAKER to a ripcord LARIAT! Fallon aims from a corner, runs, SHINING WIZARD! Cover, Fallon wins!

Winner: Fallon Henley, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

The boys celebrate with the Cowgirl as she puts her mark on the tournament! Will Fallon be able to rope that title match contract?


Backstage interview with Legado del Familia.

McKenzie was sure they came to a peace agreement with Tony D’Angelo, but then they kidnapped AJ Galante. What went wrong? When you live in Escobar’s world, disrespect is squashed swiftly. AJ Galante shouldn’t have been there at all, but when he arrived, he should’ve shown respect and was fair games. Galante can’t survive on Legado’s streets. And Tony is learning the hard way that you shouldn’t interfere with Legado’s business if you want to walk away, let alone walk at all.


Cruz Del Toro fetches the Legado car.

But as he gets in, surprise! Tony D is in his way. Cruz sighs, but then Stacks is IN the car! He and Two Dimes beat up Cruz and drag him out of the car! Tony says his boss did this to him, not Tony. The mugging continues, then they put Cruz in the trunk! They’re sending a message back to Legado! Stacks drives as the Don and his crew peel out. Will things only escalate the gang warfare?


Alba Fyre VS Amari Miller!

Kay Lee Ray rises like the phoenix, and has a new name to go with this new chapter in her career. Will she blaze a trail to the NXT Women’s Championship? Or will the Vibe of St. Louis stay cool in her return to the ring?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally for Fyre as she ties up with Amari. Fyre throws Amari down, ghost pins, TWO! Alba keeps on Amari with a wrench but Amari headlocks back. Alba powers up but can’t power free. We get a glimpse of Ivy’s fitness challenging continuing into burpees while Alba keeps working on the headlock. Alba drops, rolls Amari, TWO! Alba whips, Amari turns hip toss into arm-drag and press, TWO! Amari storms up but Alba CHOPS her! Alba brings her around but Amari blocks that next chop to knee low! Amari knuckle locks, goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS Alba away!

Amari runs in, waistlocks, ripcords, and NECKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Alba gets to a corner and Amari runs in to go after her with forearms. Amari goes corner to corner but Alba dodges and Amari hits buckles. Alba blocks the boot but Amari kicks with the other leg. Amari whips, Alba reverses to wrench and SUPERKICK! Then TORNADO DDT! Amari is dazed, Alba SUPERKICKS her down! Cover, TWO! Alba drags Amari up and fans rally up. Amari throws body shots, Alba ROCKS her! Amari ROCKS Alba back, but Alba fires elbows and forearms! Amari hits back, gets the edge, and winds up, but runs into a Gory Especial!

Amari fights free, sunset flips, TWO! Alba rushes in, Amari gets around and whips to table top! PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Fans rally, Amari drags Alba up and cravats but Alba fights out! Amari blocks superkick but gets the GLASGOW KISS! Gory Especial, FYRE BOMB! Alba goes up top, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, Alba wins!

Winner: Alba Fyre, by pinfall

Alba gets the victory and there’s a spark! Will Alba set the division on fire?


Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams pull up.

They feel good, they look good, they’re ready- Oh. Solo Sikoa is there and he locks the door?! Oh no he didn’t! They’ll get in one way or another. But will Melo & Trick be left out in the cold?


Backstage interview with Cora Jade.

McKenzie says Cora is in the main event against Natalya. Is she nervous to face a hero? Of course she is! She’s up against a legend. But Natty isn’t facing some little girl she DM’d a year ago, or that she cheap shotted a month ago. Cora is ready. Natty thinks she can be the gatekeeper of the WWE Women’s Division, but Cora is going to bust the gate down and prove she belongs, and can even hang with a future Hall of Famer.


Solo Sikoa heads to the ring.

The Street Champion may not be North American Champion, but he made sure Melo & Trick won’t get in to ruin this moment. Solo hears the fans chant his name, and he has a mic to say, “Yo, you damn right. You see, this was supposed to be Carmelo’s and Trick Williams’ time. Because it’s my time now.” Fans chant “UCE! UCE! UCE!” Everyone comes out talking about the North American Championship, but y’all already know what happened last week. Fans cheer Solo on, and Solo says if we’re talking about that title, Solo will be watching. Solo will let the whole world know, in the locker room know, and everyone in the crowd know, he’s got next!

It doesn’t matter if it’s Grimes or Melo, they both can get it! But speaking of, here comes Cameron Grimes! Grimes wants Solo to hold on. Grimes respects Solo just like the fans respect him. Solo wants another shot at the North American Championship, but at In Your House, it will be Grimes VS Melo. Fans chant, “You Got Lucky!” at Grimes but Grimes says have no fear. After he beats Melo, Solo has Grimes’ word that if Solo wants a shot at the North American Championship, then he has it! They shake on that, and fans chant, “You Got Next!” But then Melo and Trick attack Grimes! They got in after all!

Solo doesn’t even know? They set Grimes up for the SPRINGBOARD SLINGBLADE! Solo looks back as Trick gets a chair and puts it around Grimes’ neck! Melo goes up, but Solo gets in! Solo CLOBBERS Melo, SUPERKICKS Trick, and fans fire up as he has targets in opposite corners! HIP ATTACK for Trick! Melo realizes what’s coming and he gets out before Solo gives him one! Fans rally behind Solo, even as he helps Grimes up. Solo picks up the title, and Grimes takes it from him. But will Grimes hold onto that belt through In Your House 2022 to give Solo that shot?


The rest of Legado wonder where Cruz went.

But then they see the car left where it was! Where is Cruz? He’s not here, what happened? Escobar understands, and makes the call. Escobar calls Tony D’Angelo. Tony asks who this is, and Escobar says it’s him. Who? You know who! Oh, hey, how’s it going. Not good! Whoever did this to Cruz is in trouble. Oh, interesting. Why you telling Tony? Oh like he knows nothing! Well, same could be said about Galante. Maybe they ended up in the same place. Doubtful. Word is, Galante is in rough shape. Tony says if Escobar lays one more finger on Galante, he’s done for! SO how about this, wise guy? Legado lets Galante go, Tony pops the trunk, and then Tony and Escobar meet in the ring.

Fine, but Tony has sealed his fate. Sealed his fate? The Don makes threats, not Escobar. Tony will beat Escobar so bad, his own mother won’t recognize him! You understand him? You even still there?! Escobar says yes. And by the way, Tony, F U! Escobar hangs up and Tony tosses the table! Stacks is upset that his solitaire game is ruined. But will The Don and his boys rough up Legado once and for all?


Backstage interview with Nathan Frazer.

The British Prodigy is excited for the 200th episode of NXT UK, and after his win over Waller, he’s on cloud nine. And ew know who he is choosing for the mixed tag. But then Xyon Quinn walks over to say hi to the new guy. If Frazer keeps his head down and runs it straight, he’ll do great. Well thanks for the advice, but what does that mean? Wes Lee walks in and says it’s a shocker that on one knows. Quinn already put Lee in his place. Don’t make him do the same to Frazer. Frazer was being genuine, though! He thought it was like an American thing or something. Frazer leaves, but Lee says he’ll go through that again. Quinn wants him to reconsider, but Lee doesn’t


Mixed Tag Match: Sarray & Andre Chase w/ Bodhi Hayward VS Tiffany Stratton & Grayson Waller!

The Warrior of the Sun and the head of Chase U are looking to teach Buff Barbie and Cocky Ken what really makes a great competitor in NXT! Will Sarray and Andre take Tiffany and Grayson to school? Or will this be another viral moment for Tiffany’s and Grayson’s social media?

NXT returns and Sarray makes her magical girl transformation! It even affects Chase’s sweater into going sky blue and… Bodhi ends up with the pigtails? Well, that aside, the teams sort out, and Chase starts with Waller. Waller and Chase circle, tie up, and Chase wrenches the arm and chinbars. Then Chase wrenches to ELBOW BREAKER and wristlock. Waller rolls, handsprings, and WRINGS Chase out! Then Waller shows off with drop steps, and tells the U to SUCK IT. Chase and Waller tie up, Waller wrenches the arm, but Chase rolls and kips up to WRING Waller! Fans fire up but Waller rushes in.

Chase headlocks, Waller powers out but Chase runs him over! Things speed up, Waller hurdles but Chase turns hip toss into hip toss! And then he does the drop steps! Then a headlock takeover! Fans fire up as Chase has Waller down. Fans rally, Waller fights up, and Waller wrenches out to ROCK Chase with a right. Then he tags out to Tiffany. Sarray comes in and chases Tiffany around the outside! Tiffany gets in the ring and runs Sarray over! Tiffany wrenches, wristlocks, but Sarray wrenches and drop toeholds! Then she SPANKS Tiffany, before tying up the legs for a DEATHLOCK! Fans rally as Sarray bridges for the MUTA LOCK!

Tiffany endures, pulls hair, and then drags Sarray up. Sarray breaks free to CHOP Tiffany off her feet! Waller runs in but Chase DOUBLE CHIPOS him! They stomp out “CHASE U!” Sarray does the U with Chase, and they both say, “That’s a teachable moment!” Tiffany and Waller regroup at the ramp while NXT goes to break.

NXT returns again and Waller has Chase down with a chinlock. Fans rally, Chase fights up and throws body shots. Chase is free but Waller keeps him from Sarray to DECK him with a right! Tag to Tiffany and she CLOBBERS Sarray! Then ASSISTED MOONSAULT onto Chase! Tag back to Waller and he goes up. Fans boo as Waller mocks the U, BALLER ELBOW! Cover, Sarray breaks it! Waller complains but he just got away with co-ed with Tiffany. Chase gets Waller in a cradle, TWO! Waller gets Chase’s leg then ducks the enziguri, to get a SLEEPER HOLD! Chase flails, fights up but Waller thrashes Chase around!

Fans rally, Chase fights up, and Chase throws body shots. Chase powers out to put the SLEEPER on Waller! Waller powers out to get the SLEEPER! Chase hits a BIG back suplex! Fans fire up as both men are down! They crawl, hot tag to Tiffany and Sarray! Sarray TOSSES Tiffany! Then fires off forearms! She DECKS Tiffany, runs and dropkicks! Fans fire up as Sarray dropkicks her again! Sarray runs but Tiffany CLOBBERS her at the ropes! Tiffany blows a kiss, runs, but into a DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Sarray and she goes again, but Tiffany bails out. Waller check son Tiffany, then rushes in. But Chase trips Waller, and sets him up, SUNRAY DROPKICK!!

Waller flops out of the ring in a daze, but Tiffany CLOBBERS Sarray! Tiffany scoops, SLAMS Sarray into a drop zone, then goes up, TWISTING VADER! Cover, Bodhi uses the airhorn! Tiffany is pissed, and Sarray gets a ropebreak. Tiffany PLANCHAS Bodhi! “That’s a teachable moment!” But Sarray rolls Tiffany up, and wins!!

Winners: Sarray & Andre Chase, by pinfall

Tiffany & Waller just tasted some karma! Will they have to go on another shopping spree to get over this?


Ivy Nile’s challenge continues.

They’ve moved on to lunges with Bulgarian weight bags on their shoulders. There’s only four men left, but that quickly drops to just two. Ivy says they’re far from done, will anyone last the nigh?


Backstage interview with Von Wagner & Robert Stone.

Recently, Von Wagner has intentionally injured his opponents, but can he explain himself? Robert Stone says their actions are simple: if you step to Von Wagner, you get tossed like Jiro, hurt like Brooks Jensen, and so on. But then Jiro comes back for revenge! They brawl, Von throws Jiro down but security and stuff break this up! Vicious Von and Ikemen Jiro want to throw down, but will either man be standing when it’s all said and done?


Indi Hartwell checks her phone and sighs.

Toxic Attraction say they’re not here to cause trouble, but they know she’s going through a lot. They want to check on her because they can’t imagine what she’s going through. Oh, thanks. She feels like she’s lost all control, because she lost everything. No, they can’t imagine because no man has ever left Mandy Rose. Maybe Indi should find Wendy Choo crying somewhere? Misery loves company. Bye, loser. Indi scowls, but will she join Wendy and Roxanne against Toxic Attraction?


NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Opening Round: Nikkita Lyons VS Arianna Grace!

Fallon Henley lassoed herself a spot in the semifinals, but it’s time to see who else is moving towards history! Will the Lyons’ pride carry her through? Or will Lyons have to learn how to lose with Grace?

The bell rings and Lyons offers a handshake. Grace goes to accept, then she sucker punches Lyons! Lyons kicks, Grace goes after a leg, but Lyons turns things to a backslide. TWO, and Grace shoots in again. Lyons facelocks, gator rolls, but Grace slips free to go after the arm. Lyons gets free but Grace avoids the kick! Fans rally as the two circle again. They tie up, Lyons tackles Grace and rains forearms but Grace gets the arm! ARMBAR! Lyons powers to a stack, deadlifts Grace, but Grace lets go to get up and hammerlock the arm. Grace RAMS Lyons into the buckles, then wraps the arm around ropes!

The ref counts, Grace lets off and then CLUBS the arm down. Grace CLUBS the arm again, digs knees into the arm, then drops a knee on the shoulder! And then another! Fans rally but Grace SLAMS the arm on the mat. Grace pushes Lyons to then get a top wristlock clutch! Lyons endures, fights up, throws hands and knees but Grace cranks the clutch! Lyons fights up, powers up, but Grace CLUBS her in the back. Grace hammerlocks and whips but Lyons reverses to send Grace into buckles! Lyons gets away but Grace rushes her.

Winner: Nikkita Lyons, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

Lyons did roar, and Lyons did win! Will she keep that same energy as she is poised to take on Fallon in the semis?


Ivy Nile’s challenges are still going!

The ropes are whipping, but Ivy tells the finalists to not stop. Sorry, one does. It’s all down to one man, but Ivy tells him to keep going until he can’t go any longer. The last challenge is pull-ups with chains on their neck! Ivy gets up, the guy doesn’t. Ivy just rolls her eyes. Will she ever find someone on her level?


The Viking Raiders speak.

Erik says “Julius & Brutus Creed. We respect you for not wanting to accept a tainted victory. It’s hard to find men with honor and respect in this business.” Ivar says that when the bell rings, respect and honor are put aside. Tainted or not, they have never defeated in NXT, and they never will again! Next week, the raid is back! And it won’t matter who or how many there are, Ragnarok awaits!


Natalya VS Cora Jade!

The Queen of Harts, the most winningest woman in WWE history, thinks she has the right to say who is and isn’t the future of this industry. She says things look bleak with #GenerationJade as the face of the new wave, but will that new wave capsize the BOAT? Or will Cora and her board be left adrift at sea?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Natty puts Cora on the ropes. The ref counts, Natty lets off and then she shoves Cora. Fans rally and duel while Cora laughs that off. Natty headlocks and hits a takeover, but Cora fights to get a headscissor. Natty kips free and soaks up the heat, but Cora nods some respect. Then Cora gets around, headlocks and hits a takeover. Natty headscissors, Cora kips free and asks what’s wrong. They reset, tie up, and Natty kicks low. Natty wrenches, wristlocks, fans duel and Cora uses ropes to flip through. Cora then wrenches and wristlocks back. Natty rolls, handsprings, and she wrenches to fireman’s carry.

Cora fights off to arm-drag Natty away! The fans cheer that exchange, and Natty seems a bit surprised. Natty and Cora circle again, tie up, and Natty waistlocks. Cora switches around, Natty elbows and whips, but Cora goes up and over. Cora waistlocks, Natty switches to O’Conner Roll, TWO as Cora rolls her! TWO, and Cora rains down fists! Natty gets the arm but Cora slips away quickly! Cora wags her fingers, it won’t be that easy. Natty and Cora reset, they tie up again and Natty kicks low. “You wanna play, huh?” Cora arm-drags Natty away, throws forearms, then springboards to FLYING RANA!

Fans fire up and Cora gets legs! Cora wants to steal Sharpshooter?! Natty gets to ropes and Cora lets off. Natty gets out and Cora says she knows her that well. NXT goes picture in picture as Cora backs off.

Natty gets upset at the fans, then she gets back in. Natty swings but misses and Cora rolls her, ONE! Natty hurries away to a corner, Cora runs in but only gets buckles! Natty soaks up heat, then tells fans to shut up. Natty storms after Cora to bring her around for a snap suplex! Natty taunts the fans and Cora, then wraps on a chinlock. Cora endures, Natty thrashes her around, but Cora fights up. Cora throws body shots but Natty throws her down! Natty then steps on Cora, but Cora rolls her up! TWO, and Natty CLOBBERS Cora! Natty cools off and smiles, then she prances around Cora. Natty kicks Cora, CLUBS her, then SPANKS her!

Natty drags Cora up, CLUBS her, then wraps on a cobra twist! Cora endures, even as Natty puts on a leg. Natty taunts Cora and the fans, and Cora fights out to put Natty in the twist! Natty endures now as NXT returns to single picture! Fans rally as Cora twists Natty! Natty powers out with a TOSS! Natty hobbles over, dribbles Cora off the mat, and the fans duel as Natty hooks up the legs. Natty SLAPS Cora to get the arms, ROMERO SPECIAL! Cora endures the floating surfboard and gets her arms free! Cora rolls free, then basement dropkicks! Cora wants Natty to get up, and then drags her up, only for Natty to shove her down!

Cora gets up to SLAP Natty! Natty kicks low, whips, but Cora goes up, under, but gets caught! Canadian Rack, but Cora arm-drags free! Fans fire up and Cora grits her teeth. Cora ROCKS Natty with haymakers, then goes up the ropes to rebound and arm-drag! Fans fire up more as Cora SHINING WIZARDS Natty against ropes! Cora reels Natty in, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Natty survives and Cora is seeing why she’s the most winningest woman in WWE! “This is Awesome!” as Cora puts Natty in a drop zone. Cora goes up the corner, Natty ROCKS her first! Natty climbs up after Cora, but Cora fights back!

They brawl with body shots, Cora shoves Natty away! Cora adjusts, jumps and rolls, but Natty stops Sliced Bread to roll up! ONE, into SHARP- NO! Cora kicks free, rolls Natty, TWO! DISCUS from Natty! Cover, TWO!! Fans are thunderous and Natty is shocked! Natty runs in to fire off haymakers! The ref counts, Natty lets off, but then gets Cora up for a snap suplex into buckles! Natty soaks up the heat while Cora drags herself up. Natty CHOP BLOCKS the leg! Natty drags Cora back to center, gets the leg and GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! Cora clutches the leg but Natty drags Cora up and bumps her off buckles.

Natty stomps the bad leg, but Cora kicks back. Natty goes outside, drags Cora to the post, and SLAMS the bad leg against the steel! Natty gets the leg again to SLAM it into the post again!

Winner: Natalya, by submission

The BOAT smiles, but even she is a bit surprised it went this far. Cora’s fighting spirit was more than her body could support, and Natty respects that. Natty offers a hand, and Cora takes it. Fans applaud as Natty and Cora hug it out. Even in defeat, did Cora turn the tide? Is the future of NXT looking a little brighter to Natty now?

My Thoughts:

Another great NXT, and it seems this starts the road to NXT In Your House 2.0. Solo locking out Trick & Melo, though it didn’t keep, was a very clever move from him. I feel like this is how they wanted, or should have, set Solo up against the North American Champion before just making it a Triple Threat at Spring Breakin’. Grimes VS Melo is going to be a great match, and I almost felt even here tonight, Grimes is poised to go back to being the brash, loudmouth Heel. Heel Grimes VS Face Solo is a natural move, because fans love Solo and are not liking how Grimes has become since becoming champion.

Glad to see we got to see the “post show” shenanigans of Gacy and his goons going after Bron. Gacy has a good enough promo to set up the next phase of this, but I wish we’d gotten to know the names of these “faces of change.” Maybe that’s coming once they know who those two will actually be. Bron is of course not going to be lost for long, but I wonder if he’ll get back-up in taking on Gacy and his goons. Steiner Brothers having #OneLastMatch? Then we got a good promo from Frazer, Quinn and Lee, and Quinn VS Lee Round 2 is going to be a lot of fun. Quinn won the first, so maybe Lee finds a way to win the rematch.

Good return for KLR now that she’s “Alba Fyre,” and for that matter, a pretty good return for Amari Miller after getting hurt in her match with Lash Legend months ago. The biggest thing is that Alba has a very theatrical entrance, perfect for RawDown. Maybe KLR gets one last shot at the NXT Women’s Championship, maybe she loses it because of another Heel finish from Mandy, and then KLR can go to RawDown. I also liked the Ivy Nile Fitness Challenge. They should’ve thought to do something like this with her earlier, but better late than never. I don’t know where this will go, but it’ll be fun character stuff for Ivy while it lasts.

And speaking of Diamond Mine, Strong adding a new member was a great move. We’re already seeing him start to phase out the Creeds for when they as Faces get away from Strong as a Heel. However, I think wires are crossed having Damon Kemp be the one to join when he’s trying to be Face on NXT UK. Unless Kemp oddly ends up Face and sides with the Creeds. That’d be hilarious. But for now, expect Kemp to be out there with the Creeds against the Viking Raiders in the rematch, and possibly cost them with his overcoaching and distracting. Then we can get Strong & Kemp VS Creeds for the fate of the faction.

I really liked what we got out of Grayson, Tiffany, Sarray and Chase U. The Heel Heat is strong in Waller & Stratton as a super Heel couple, and I like that Sarray suggested they make it a Mixed Tag Match tonight. I also thought it was genius for them to kayfabe other teachers and classes being at Chase U, and that Bodhi knew Japanese thanks to one. The Mixed Tag was good stuff, and I almost feared Tiffany was going to cheat another win. But Bodhi countering her with another airhorn was great, and Sarray gets payback on Tiffany. It doesn’t quite feel like a blow-off, that would probably be if Frazer gets involved again.

Great stuff out of Legado and Tony D’Angelo’s guys. Good promo from Escobar, good parking lot attack from Tony and his guys, and good “phone call” between Escobar and Tony. I guess we’re not getting the Six Man, though, with Cruz taken captive. But there will surely be shenanigans in Tony VS Escobar, because this feels like something that only ends on a special episode or “Premium Live Event.” Tony VS Escobar for In Your House would be a great match, especially if it’s a No Disqualification stipulation. And maybe on the side, we see Wilde & Del Toro VS Stacks & Two Dimes just so they aren’t left out.

Toxic Attraction VS Wendy & Roxie being a tag title match was a surprise, because I do not remember it being advertised that way. It was a very good match, but of course Mandy interferes. The Heel Heat is strong here, too, I definitely want to see them lose those titles. Toxic Attraction picking on Indi was one, a great way to further plug the horrible release of Dexter and Persia, and also a way to get Indi going after Mandy and that singles title. As the last member of The Way in NXT, Indi becoming NXT Women’s Champion to follow up being tag champion would be great for her. And maybe Wendy sticks with Roxie and they get another try at the tag titles, assuming Roxie doesn’t win the Women’s Breakout Tournament.

Speaking of which, we’ve got a great bracket for the tournament, and we got some really good opening round matches. I knew Lyons VS Grace was going to go Lyons’ way, she is one of the frontrunners for the finals for sure. Fallon VS Sloane was one I saw going either way. Fallon has her story with Briggs, Brooks and by extension, Legado, but it seems they’re moving on from that while Legado is feuding with Team D’Angelo. So therefore, great stuff for Fallon to win and move on, she’ll surely put Lyons over. But even in defeat, Sloane and Grace showed good in-ring work, they’ll definitely support the future of NXT these next few years.

And of course, what a main event! Cora Jade probably had her best singles match in NXT, which I knew Natty would bring out of her. That finish was also amazing, and a great nod back to Bret Hart VS Stone Cold where Steve Austin chose to pass out, not tap out. That kind of finish shows that WWE is building Cora up with the right pacing, and we’ll see her be a top champion soon enough.

My Score: 8.5/10

AEW World Trios Championships: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Hardy Party!

The open challenge was put forth, and it was answered very quickly! Will Matt, Jeff & Brother Zay DELETE the Scissor World Tour? Or will Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass keep the party going?

But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “Acclaimed on the mic, ’bout to leave these dudes up in smoke! Y’know we comin’ like the Colorado Buffalos! Matt, I don’t want any heat!

Fans fire up as Caster has Kassidy up to scoop and SLAM! Billy helps get the legs, and Bowens goes up to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Kassidy squeals before impact! Cover, TWO! Kassidy survives but The Acclaimed have control as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Billy brings Kassidy up, bumps him off buckles, and he hears the fans singing. Billy ROCKS Kassidy with a right, apologizes to the ref, then tags to Bowens. Bowens drags Kassidy up to ROCK him with haymaker after haymaker! Bowens then brings Kassidy up to tag in Caster. They double suplex Kassidy, Caster covers, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Caster keeps Kassidy down with a chinlock while fans rally up. Kassidy fights to his feet, throws body shots, and he fires forearms as Rampage returns to single picture. Kassidy runs but Caster CLOBBERS him! Tag to Billy and they mug Kassidy.

Billy brings Kassidy to an open corner, stomps and ROCKS him on repeat, then lets off to smirk at the Hardys. He dares them to do something, but Matt tells Billy to suck it! So Billy DECKS Matt! Billy runs corner to corner but Kassidy dodges! The splash hits buckles and Billy falls back! Fans rally up as both men crawl, but Billy gets Kassidy’s leg! Kassidy stands up to ENZIGURI!

A huge win for the champions, and the Scissor World Tour continues! In fact, it is heading to Seattle for WrestleDream’s Zero Hour! TMDK’s Shane Haste, Mikey Nicholls & Bad Dude Tito are waiting, will they show The Acclaimed that The Mighty Don’t Kneel?


Eddie Kingston speaks.

“Well folks, tonight, it’s me and Big Rock, Rocky Romero, for the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship. Rock, I got nothing but respect for you, dawg, so it’s gonna be an honor and a pleasure to defend this against you. You’re the man that got me into the G1. You’re the man that got me-” Wait, Team Triple J is interrupting. Jay Lethal says that if we’re talking honor and respect, Eddie is standing here with two titles on his shoulders, and that is worth respecting. But Lethal can’t get behind how Eddie is the ROH World Champion. Lethal dedicated his life to that title! His blood, sweat, tears, all to honor a tradition that meant that every person to hold that title would be a pure athlete!

And Eddie, you are no pure athlete! Now as for this NJPW Strong Openweight title, Lethal doesn’t care if Eddie wins it or loses it here tonight. He really doesn’t. But he just cares that Eddie is unfit to be ROH World Champion! Eddie says okay, he’s got Lethal. But excuse his back, he’s gotta go beat up Romero. The Mad King leaves, but will he still have both crowns going into WrestleDream?


AEW shares an interview from after last week’s Collision.

Lexi Nair was with Andrade El Idolo after he was bandaged up from the beating Bullet Club Gold gave him. He almost won, but Juice Robinson interfered. What was that about? Andrade says everyone saw that Andrade had White beat. But the question for Juice is… “Do you have a problem with me? With Andrade El Idolo? Lemme tell you something. See you Saturday in Seattle!” Andrade wants his revenge on Rock Hard, will he get it on WrestleDream Eve?


NJPW Strong Openweight Championship: Eddie Kingston VS Rocky Romero!

The Mad King beat Kenta at NJPW Independence Day back in July to have his first singles title under the NJPW banner. And now he defends it against Azucar as a favor for getting him in the door. Will Rocky repay this favor by taking this title from Eddie? Or will Eddie still head to Seattle as a double champion?

The introductions are made, the NJPW belt is raised, and we see who is truly NJPW Strong!

The bell rings and fans rally up for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” The two circle, Rocky tests things with a kick but Eddie stays back. They feel things out, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Eddie waistlocks, Rocky wrenches, wristlocks, but Eddie clinches. Fans rally, Rocky keeps on the wristlock but Eddie powers through to wrench and wristlock back. Rocky rolls, breaks free and DROPKICKS! Fans are torn as Rocky swaggers, but he and Eddie reset. They feel things out, knuckle lock, and Rocky knees low. Rocky headlocks, grinds the hold, but Eddie powers up and out. They RAM shoulders, but Eddie stays up with a smirk.

Fans fire up as Rocky smirks back, but then pie faces Eddie! Rocky runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, and RANAS! Eddie bails out, Rocky builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit but Eddie stays up, so Rocky goes again! DIVE and Eddie drops to his knees! Rocky keeps going, and he DIVES for the hattrick, only for Eddie to catch him! Stalling suplex, to the floor! Fans rally behind Eddie while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Eddie stands, stretches out his back, and then he gets Rocky up and into the ring. Cover, TWO! Eddie keeps cool, and also chooses not to rain down fists, instead clamping on a chinlock. Rocky endures as Eddie grinds him down, and fans rally up. Eddie cranks the headlock but Rocky refuses to give up. Rocky fights up, throws elbows, but Eddie knees him low! Eddie whips to knee low again, then whips for another knee! Eddie whips but Rocky rolls him up, TWO! Rocky BUZZSAWS Eddie, then TORNADO DDTS! Both men are down and a standing count begins. Rocky stirs at 3, crawls over, and he brings Eddie up.

Eddie pushes Rocky, runs, but into an IRON OCTOPUS! Eddie endures, pries at the hold, and pops free, only for Rocky to wrangle him with a ghost pin! TWO, and Eddie goes to ropes. Rocky storms up, KICKS Eddie in the back, but Eddie just grimaces. Eddie eggs Rocky on so Rocky KICKS him again! Eddie growls and eggs Rocky on more as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Rampage returns and Eddie suplexes, but Rocky knees free! Rocky knees low, Eddie rebounds, but into a JUMP KNEE! Eddie goes to ropes, Rocky storms over and brings him up through the ropes, to KICK! Eddie eggs Rocky on even though he’s stuck, so Rocky SLAPS Eddie! Eddie SLAPS Rocky! Rocky SOBATS! Then Rocky goes up a corner to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Eddie is still in this and Rocky argues the count but the ref says it was fair. Rocky drags Eddie up, cravats, but no Sliced Bread! Eddie runs in to clothesline in the corner! And MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans fire up and Eddie hoists Rocky up top!

Eddie climbs up behind Rocky, stands him up, but Rocky throws hands! Rocky CLUBS Eddie, cravats, and hits SUPER SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Eddie survives, and Rocky grits his teeth. Rocky pumps up and fans rally. Rocky runs in to clothesline! That’s one-ever! Two-ever! But URAKEN stops that! URAKEN again!! Eddie drags Rocky into the STRETCH PLUM!! Rocky taps, Eddie wins!!

Winner: Eddie Kingston, by submission (still NJPW Strong Openweight Champion)

Azucar could not dethrone The Mad King, but he still shows Eddie respect with a handshake and hug. Eddie is still NJWP Strong, but will he have to fight even harder to survive The Wrestler, Katsuyori Shibata?

Wait! That’s Shibata’s music! Shibata is HERE! He goes into the ring and shakes hands with Eddie. These two respect each other, and that means they will give it everything they’ve got! Will Eddie still be a two belt king? Or will Shibata become a TRIPLE CROWN Champion?


Aussie Open speaks.

Mark Davis says he is so tired. So tired of hearing the “top blokes” walk around here the last year, hubris unchecked, lying to the people that they are the best in the world. Kyle Fletcher says that for the last 365 days, everything Aussie Open has done has been to get back to FTR. When FTR beat them a year ago, it broke Fletcher. Fletcher felt like a failure and felt lost. So what he wants more than anything is to make FTR feel that pain. This Sunday, Aussie Open takes the AEW World Tag Team Championships, burns down the legacy of #7StarFTR, and from the ashes, rebuild a new empire that they will stand atop of to proclaim that THEY are the best tag team in the world!

The Aussie Arrow and Dunkzilla are ready to bring down Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, will they fulfill that WrestleDream?


The Righteous VS Caleb Crush & Gunnar!

Speaking of tag titles, Dutch & Vincent are aimed at the ROH World Tag Team Championships! However, Adam Cole will be out with injury so it’ll just be Maxwell Jacob Friedman meeting them in Seattle. Will this tune-up prove to be more than enough going into that tag title handicap match?

The teams sort out, but then Dutch just CLOBBERS Crush & Gunnar! Fans boo as Dutch says just a few more days and those titles will be theirs! Vincent rains down fists on Crush, then drags him up to UPPERCUT! Vincent bumps Crush off buckles, tags in Dutch, and the Righteous mugs Crush before the BOSS MAN SLAM! Gunnar staggers up but Dutch feeds him to Vinnie’s KNEE! Then Vinnie feeds him to a BOSS MAN SLAM! Tag to Vinnie, fans are torn as the Righteous pace around Crush. Vinnie snaps his fingers, then cravats, AUTUMN SUNSET! Cover, Righteous win!

Winners: The Righteous, by pinfall

A swift and dominant win, these are the two men coming for the tag titles! Will The Righteous purge ROH of the “false friendship” that is the brochachos? Or are even two Righteous men combined not on the level of the Devil?


Ortiz sits alone in a room.

He looks back on his career alongside Mike Santana. They were at the top of their game coming into AEW, but then it ended up going downhill. There’s even audio from Konnan touching on how Ortiz and Santana stopped talking to each other and how Konnan was saddened by that. Ortiz has the footage stop there. What will it take for him to get Santana to talk to him?


Darby Allin speaks.

After replaying what Christian Cage said just last Wednesday on Dynamite, the Relentless One reiterates that he is NOT losing in Seattle, Washington! Will Darby defend home turf against Captain Charisma?

Nick Wayne speaks.

He knows Darby has a lot to say about Christian Cage, and all of that will be part of the Countdown special. But Nick also knows Darby’s actions will speak louder than his words at WrestleDream. And although Darby told Nick not to be there ringside, Nick doesn’t really want to anyway because of what Christian & Luchasaurus are capable of. So, while they let Christian and Darby settle their business, how about Nick and Luchasaurus settle theirs? For months and months, Luchasaurus walked around here while another man held his title. And Luchasaurus followed Christian around like he was some kind of father figure.

And Nick isn’t sure what it is about Christian where he thinks he can even be such a figure to “us Lost Boys,” but Nick had a father. And he told Nick at a young age “to never leave your debts unpaid.” Nick owes Luchasaurus. At Wembley Stadium, Luchasaurus choke slammed Nick onto a skateboard and Nick never forgot it. Nick will repay Luchasaurus this Sunday during Zero Hour. And Nick will even hand Luchasaurus a receipt. Nick brings his own skateboard, will he grind it right into the Right Hand of Destruction?


BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

AEW is going to do it big for WrestleDream Eve as, with Zack Sabre Jr. on commentary, we see an 8 Man Tag! FTR teams with Bryan Danielson & Wheeler Yuta to take on Aussie Open, Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey! Plus, Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega test their tag team chemistry against The Gates of Agony! Will The Ocho & The Cleaner survive Toa Liona & Bishop Kaun to take on the Don Callis Family? And Julia Hart gets in action to build some last minute momentum, will she be ready for Kris Statlander and their TBS Championship match set for Sunday?


Backstage interview with Zack Sabre Jr.

Renee Paquette is with The Front Man of TMDK, and says we’re just days away from WrestleDream, where ZSJ takes on The American Dragon, Bryan Danielson. ZSJ just came off a three week tour in NJPW and just got here to the States, is he worried at all about acclimating? ZSJ asks Bryan “Dragon Bullocks” Danielson, “Where are you, darling?” As Renee just said, ZSJ got off a 16 hour flight from Tokyo and is feeling fresh as a daisy. But perhaps this company’s keeping Bryan wrapped head to toe in bubble wrap, or keeps him in a giant Zorb ball. At this point, a strong gust of wind will knock Bryan over.

And is ZSJ supposed to be honored that Bryan chose him as part of the year long retirement tour? Newsflash: Bryan barely has a weekend. This Sunday isn’t just about finding out who the best technical wrestler is, no no. Bryan has retired once in Seattle, so ZSJ will make it final. Ya like that? The final retirement~! Submissions in Seattle, see you on Sunday. The NJPW World Television Champion has put Bryan on notice, but will he be able to slay the American Dragon?


AEW Women’s World Championship #1 Contender’s match: Ruby Soho VS Hikaru Shida!

While the Outcasts stand at two members, Saraya is looking forward to a friendly showdown with the Runaway in a little under two weeks! But will Ruby make sure there is No Future for the Shining Samurai? Or will Shida take down one Outcast to go after another?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans fire up as Ruby and Shida step up, and they’re on Shida’s side. Ruby shoves, runs, and RAMS Shida, but Shida just fires up! Ruby headlocks, Shida throws body shots, and then she powers out. Shida then runs past Ruby to run Ruby over! Fans duel, Shida has the majority, and she goes to the corner. Shida climbs up but Ruby slips away before any fists can rain down! Shida is annoyed but she waits on Ruby to return. Ruby takes her time going to the apron, steps in at 6 of 10 but wants Shida to stay back. Shida gets annoyed as the ref keeps her back, but then Ruby pulls Shida’s hair to throw her down!

Ruby throws hands, puts Shida in the corner, then RAMS into her again and again! Fans boo but Ruby runs, only to miss! Shida ROCKS Ruby, then climbs up to rain down fists! Ruby gets away before three, runs back in but into a BOOT! Shida bumps Ruby off buckles, climbs up and rains down those fists! Ruby slips out at five to YANK Shida down! Ruby whips, Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Shida then drags Ruby up, puts her in yet another corner, and tries one more time! Shida rains down fists, and goes all the way to TEN! Fans fire up with Shida and she kicks Ruby out, to then MISSILE DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Shida drags Ruby up, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Ruby CLUBS away on Shida to stop the lift, then shoves her to a corner. Ruby runs in, Shida dodges, but Ruby ELBOWS her! Ruby goes up to hit DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Ruby digs Shida into the buckles, lets off as the ref counts, and then brings Shida up to snapmare. Ruby covers, TWO! Ruby throws down fists now, but lets off with a smug smirk. Ruby puts Shida on ropes to CHOKE! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and then Ruby has Shida in the ropes to throw knees! A shoutout to Saraya, and Ruby lets off at 4. Ruby stalks Shida, looms over her, and pushes her around. Shida pushes back but Ruby eggs her on.

Shida drags herself up, but Ruby CHOKES her on the ropes!

The ref counts while Ruby BITES Shida’s ear! Ruby lets off at 4, drags Shida up, but Shida ROCKS her! And again! And again! And again! But Ruby knees low! Ruby talks trash, whips Shida to ropes, but Shida ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS knock both women down! Rampage returns to single picture as the standing count climbs.

Cover, but still no ref! Wait, here comes Aubrey! Aubrey slides in, counts the cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Shida fires up! Shida puts Ruby in a drop zone, goes up the corner, and she METE- NO! Ruby dodges to then STO! Ruby drags herself up the corner, goes to the very top, and STAGE DIVE SENTONS onto knees! And then FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Shida won’t stop there!

Shida hauls Ruby up but Ruby wrenches to NO FUTURE KICK! But Shida rebounds to KATANA!! Cover, Shida wins!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW Women’s World Champion)

The Shining Samurai takes down The Runaway, but wait! Here comes Saraya! #TitleTuesday is coming, will that be a good Knight for the champ? Or will Shida take this belt back to become a historic THREE-TIME champion?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, especially as the go-home to WrestleDream. I figured the title matches would end with the champions retaining, but we got really good stuff out of Acclaimed VS Hardy Party and Eddie VS Rocky. As for their title defenses on WrestleDream, I don’t see TMDK taking the trios titles as this will be their AEW debuts. And as I’ve said a few times already, Eddie isn’t losing both belts he worked so hard to have so soon. Plus, it feels like there’s some tension between NJPW the company and Shibata, or else Shibata would already be NJPW Strong Openweight Champion and not one of ROH’s champs.

Speaking of Eddie, good promo from him before his match with Rocky, and good interaction with Team Triple J. I wasn’t exactly expecting Jay Lethal to be Eddie’s first actual feud for the ROH World Championship, but I suppose it does make sense as Lethal was a major player in ROH. I hope these guys actually show up on ROH programming, but also, Tony Khan wants this feud to be seen so it’ll end up on AEW programming instead. Y’know, just like all these other ROH title stories outside of the AEW Women’s title.

Good squash from The Righteous, and I’m really curious as to how the tag title match goes on Sunday. There’s a lot of stuff MJF still has to do with Cole, Roddy and The Kingdom, and now this intrigue with Jay White, Bullet Club Gold and the backstage attack at the end of Dynamite. I still feel it should’ve been The Kingdom in the PPV match anyway, but it seems they were going to drag this story out even before Cole hurt his foot. Good promo from Nick Wayne to call out Luchasaurus, but I feel like Luchasaurus ends up winning that match just to make a point of Nick not being able to show up ringside for Darby.

Good promo from Andrade to call out Juice for this week’s Collision, and I’m still wondering if/when La Faccion Ingobernable helps Andrade against Bullet Club Gold. For that matter, why can’t MJF be paying LFI to beat up on White and the BCG? He’s had business dealings with Andrade & Rush before, let’s strike that up again for some continuity. Really good promo from Aussie Open ahead of their tag title match, and from ZSJ to call out Bryan. That 8 Man Tag tomorrow night is going to be good stuff, and perhaps rather telling about where the PPV matches go. The only reason I don’t see Aussie Open winning against FTR is because of that big Fatal 4 Way tag contenders match, but who knows, maybe Aussie Open wins to bring the AEW belts to NJPW events as they take on like Goto & Hashi.

And of course, a great main event from Shida and Ruby. Seems a little silly to set up Ruby as a contender, wouldn’t that just end up in a Finger Poke of Doom situation with Saraya? Which therefore meant Shida was winning. Saraya VS Shida for this Title Tuesday Dynamite is going to be good stuff, but something makes me feel like Ruby is just gonna help Saraya retain. And not to be mean to Shida, but if she’s already a two-time champ, I don’t see her becoming three-time so soon. Why not get Shida in on the TBS Championship story? Britt Baker wants to be the first to have held both titles in AEW, but Shida should want that distinction, too. Then that lets us have Britt VS Shida as we should’ve gotten by now given everything else we’ve been seeing lately.

My Score: 8.7/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (9/29/23)

King VS Emperor to determine a champion!



One way or another, the US title belongs to the LWO!

Rey Mysterio defends his WWE United States Championship against friend and protege, Santos Escobar! But will things stay friendly between them?


  • Jimmy Uso w/ The Bloodline VS Karl Anderson; Jimmy wins.
  • Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller VS Cameron Grimes; Theory wins.
  • WWE United States Championship: Rey Mysterio VS Santos Escobar; Rey wins and retains the title.
  • Charlotte Flair VS Bayley w/ Damage CTRL; Charlotte wins.


The Bloodline is here!

Fans boo as Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa & Paul Heyman head to the ring. And Jimmy is definitely hyped over how he and Solo took down AJ Styles and John Cena, putting the tag team match at Fastlane into question. Heyman has the mic to introduce himself, but the fans keep on booing. His name isn’t “Boo,” he’s Paul! Heyman! And tonight, a rare  opportunity that he doesn’t have to do this into the phone but live to the world here from SmackDown, in the hell hole of Sacramento, California. “We ACKNOWLEDGE our Tribal Chief!” The Bloodline throws up the ones, and Heyman says, “And so do each and every single one of you!”

The fans boo, though some do raise the fingers. Heyman asks us why do they acknowledge Roman… Reigns? Because it is in Roman’s name that last week, the second greatest of all time, John Cena, took a beating at the hands of the Bloodline in a way Cena hasn’t taken in at least a decade. And to wit, Heyman calls our attention to the Bloodline version of the Zapruder Film. Heyman plays footage from just last week, where Cena was the only one who signed the contract to have a match for Fastlane. Cena hoped AJ Styles was going to be his partner, but then the Bloodline struck first and hospitalized AJ Styles.

And back to present, fans are booing but Jimmy’s almost cracking up. Heyman says not to get involved in Cena’s business, but a little birdie told Heyman that there are some transportation issues this evening. And while Cena is expected to make it here, you can’t see him because Cena is NOT here. But y’know who else ain’t here? AJ Styles! And why is that? Because he’s lying in a hospital bed, watching them on SmackDown and- Jimmy holds his hand out for the mic? Heyman says he wasn’t done but Jimmy snatches the mic. “Sacramento! The Bloodline is now in your city!” Heyman sighs while Jimmy raises the one.

Jimmy tells the Wise Man, you are too kind. The real reason Cena isn’t here tonight is because he’s scared! Scared of  one JIM USO! Jimmy says if Cena is smart, he’ll stay far, far away. If not, they’ll take care of him like they did the Phenomenal One! The one who built the house, place, face- KARL ANDERSON CLOBBERS SOLO! Then he TACKLES Jimmy! Jimmy gets up but Karl clotheslines him up and out! Fans fire up for Karl as he represents for The OC! Karl says he told Styles not to get in Bloodline business and now Styles is in the hospital. So now, this is OC business! Any one of them, get in the ring with him!

Fans fire up but Heyman has Solo stand down. Heyman whispers things to The Enforcer, and then Solo tells Jimmy to handle this or he’ll do it for him. Jimmy says he’s got this. Solo doesn’t return the high-five, but will Jimmy return fire on the Machine Gun?


Jimmy Uso w/ The Bloodline VS Karl Anderson!

SmackDown returns and the match is going as Karl bumps Jimmy off buckles! Then CHOPS! And fires off haymakers! The ref counts, Karl lets off but then stomps a mudhole! Karl lets off to tell Heyman & Solo they made this personal. Karl stands Jimmy up but Jimmy swings. Karl dodges to JUMP KICK! Karl says he told Styles not to get involved but too late now. Karl whips, Jimmy BOOTS back! Jimmy runs, but Karl gives him a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Heyman is worried but Solo is stoic as Jimmy survives. Karl storms up on Jimmy, UPPERCUTS him to the corner, then UPPERCUTS again!

Karl brings Jimmy up to the top rope, ROCKS him with rights, then climbs. Solo steps forward and that distracts Karl, as well as the ref. Jimmy CLAWS Karl’s eyes! The ref misses it but fans boo as Jimmy rains down fists on Karl. Jimmy snarls, goes to a corner, and he SUPERKICKS Karl down! Jimmy goes to the corner, climbs up, and scowls at the booing fans before the USO SPLASH! Cover, Jimmy wins!

Winner: Jimmy Uso, by pinfall

Heyman is relieved and he whispers something more to Solo. Jimmy may be getting himself into trouble, but he’s also getting himself out, will this get Jimmy back in the Bloodline?

Wait, Karl isn’t done! He gets up to throw more hands with Jimmy! Solo storms in to hit the SAMOAN SPIKE! Solo roars as Karl is down, no back-up even possible with both Styles and Gallows hurt. Is the OC no longer a problem for The Bloodline? Wait, Michin is here! She SLAPS Jimmy right down! Fans are thunderous as she storms to the ring. Jimmy asks what the heck! Mia Yim packs a punch, will that knock some sense into Jimmy?


Backstage interview with Santos Escobar.

Cathy Kelley is with The Emperor of Lucha, and says that he faces his mentor and LWO teammate, Rey Mysterio. Where is his mind at tonight? Santos says his mind is focused, but his stomach has butterflies. But this match is about heart. And Santos has already said this is a dream match for him, and he has been working his entire life for it. Now, with the whole world watching, he has a chance to make the dream come true. He never gives up on his dreams, and he will fight for them, so Rey is in for the fight of his life. May the best man win. Will it be Emperor or King of Lucha that reigns as the United States Champion?


The Bloodline regroups backstage.

Jimmy is fuming and he yells at a production staff member just for looking at him. He asks another if they saw what happened, then just shoves the guy down! Jimmy storms off, Solo follows and Heyman has the staff relax. Then he puts in a call to Roman Reigns. What will The Tribal Chief have to say about Jimmy’s attitude?


It’s an all new Grayson Waller Effect.

The Aussie Icon, the Moment Maker, the Dynamite From Down Under is already in the ring on his set, and he says what a wild night already. Cena may be the greatest of all time, but he ain’t the greatest at being on time! Hah! But don’t worry, because Waller is here to save the show. Fans boo but Waller thanks them. Waller’s guests just keep getting bigger, and this is literal given the physical specimen. He has done everything in the WWE as a performer, but not as a talent scout. But that’s alright, he gets what he’s always been missing: the Waller rub! Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the All Mighty Bobby Lashley!

Fans cheer as Lashley makes his way out and Waller does some push-ups so he looks at least a little bigger standing next to him. They shake hands and then sit at the desk. Waller says he wasn’t lying when the guests keep getting bigger, right? How does he fit into the suit? But Waller appreciates Lashley being on the show, especially after the week he’s had. His boys, the Street Profits had a devastating loss last week. Lashley says he made a mistake. He was looking for the next big thing, he thought the Profits had what it takes to do whatever they want, but seems not. Back to the drawing board, huh?

Wow, that must be hard for the Profits to hear. But yeah, if you’re looking for a tag team, they need to be willing to do whatever it takes. A team with unbridled charisma! A team that is undefeated! Maybe a team like Austin Theory & Grayson Waller! Lashley’s stare makes Waller slow his roll. Lashley knows all about Theory, that’s a pass. Yeah, but Theory’s changed! If you get to know him, he’s a good bloke! And- Wait! Here come the Street Profits! Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins came dressed to match Lashley, and Lashley seems rather upset and confused. The Profits step into the ring, mics in their hands.

Lashley steps to them, and he stops Dawkins before he gets started. No excuses, no reasons. If they want something out of Lashley, they need to prove it. Lashley goes to leave, and then the Profits look to each other. They storm out after Lashley and get up in his face! Lashley says he told them what to do. Now go do it. He keeps on moving, and Waller says how awkward. Hey, light the beam for the 153 million hit man, Austin Theory! Theory makes his entrance, walking past Lashley on the stage, and then continues down the ramp. He smirks at the Profits and goes to the steps, with Waller being the only one cheering.

But will it be A-Town Down as Theory faces Cameron Grimes? Or will SmackDown go TO~ THE~ MOON~?

Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller VS Cameron Grimes!

SmackDown returns, Theory is busy looking at NXT’s Dragon Lee watching from the front row, and the bell rings. Theory turns around into a BOOT from Grimes! Grimes fires off KICKS, UPPERCUTS, and then CHOPS! Grimes whips, Theory reverses but Grimes CLOBBERS Theory! Grimes keeps moving and he CLOBBERS Theory again! Atomic drop, then KICK! Then a KICK, run, and SHOTGUN dropkick! Cover, ONE! Another cover, ONE! Theory scrambles, Grimes has the leg, and Grimes drags Theory back. Theory kicks free, Waller coaches Theory up and Theory ELBOWS Grimes! And throat chops!

Theory throws down clubbing hands while fans boo, but Theory shouts at everyone. Theory brings Grimes up, talks trash, but Grimes eggs him on! Grimes fires off fists, body shots, then backs Theory to a corner. Grimes whips, Theory reverses, then Theory runs in. Theory blocks a boot but Grimes ENZIGURIS! Grimes goes up, leaps, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Theory hangs tough and Waller relaxes. Grimes aims, and he BUZZ- NO, Theory ducks! So Grimes backflips to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Theory survives but Grimes storms up on him in the corner. Grimes KICKS Theory against ropes!

Grimes runs, then he clotheslines Theory out of the ring! Grimes goes to the apron, and he PENALTY KICKS Theory down! Fans fire up with the Carolina Caveman as he takes it to Mr. ATL. Waller talks trash, though, and Grimes stares him down. Theory POSTS Grimes in the distraction! Waller laughs, Theory drags Grimes up and in, and then Theory slingshots. Somersault SHOTGUN! Grimes staggers into the fireman’s carry, A-TOWN DOWN! Cover, Theory wins!

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

Waller’s a baller with that assist to his boy, and The Now comes out on top! Will these two look to take over SmackDown one win at a time? Theory also talks some trash on Dragon, then pie faces him! So Dragon hits back! Fans fire up but the ref keeps Theory back. Dragon is here as a guest, but Waller says Dragon can’t do nothing anyway. Will this duo hope Boy Wonder stays away from this brand?


Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.

Kayla Braxton is with the US Champion and says earlier tonight, Santos said this wasn’t just a dream match, but the fight of their lives. What is Rey’s response? Rey says LWO is familia and will always be that. But he knows how hard Santos has worked to get here. Heck, Rey grew up watching Santos’ father, El Fantasma. So Rey has nothing but love and respect for Santos. But be careful what you wish for. Every time Rey steps in the ring, he expects the best of his opponent and brings the best in return. So Santos, like they say, this IS the fight of their lives! May the best man win. Rey seems to feel the same way as Santos, but will either man still feel good after taking a loss?


The Bloodline is beating up Ashante THEE Adonis?!

B-Fab shouts for Jimmy to stop but Jimmy stops when he says he’s stopping! Refs and producers rush in and Jimmy says okay, his bad, he’s done now. Adonis crawls away, but Solo is there! Jimmy says finish this, Solo! UREANGE through the table!! Hit Row suffers the wrath of The Bloodline, but when and where will it stop?


WWE United States Championship: Rey Mysterio VS Santos Escobar!

SmackDown returns as Zelina is ringside for both men, and Santos makes his entrance. Santos says hola to Dragon before getting in the ring. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who holds gold for the L W O!

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two tie up. They go around, Santos waistlocks but Rey works on an escape. Santos holds tight, they sit down, and Rey moves around. Rey fights up, jumps, but Santos holds on during the flying mare! Santos shifts to go for an abdominal stretch but Rey fights it to have a toehold. Fans rally and duel, Santos chinlocks but Rey pulls on the leg. Santos uses that to body scissor, and he rolls Rey to a cover, ONE! Rey is still stuck in the scissors but he moves around. Rey claws at the hold, Santos shifts and has the back mount to then roll Rey again. Rey slips free and the two stand off.

Fans cheer as Rey and Santos reset. Santos trips Rey, blocks the headscissor, but Rey gets up. Santos wrenches, wristlocks, but Rey flips through! Santos whips, Rey reverses but Santos reverses again. Rey is on the apron but he RAMS into Santos! Rey slingshots but Santos stops the rana to GAMANGIRI! Rey falls, Santos PLANCHAS! Down goes Rey at the ramp and Zelina is worried for both men as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Santos has Rey in a modified stretch. Rey endures, Santos shifts his grip, but Rey fights free. Santos has a hammerlock to keep Rey close, and Santos wrangles Rey down. Rey fights up, fans rally, and Rey jumps to hit that flying-mare! Fans fire up as Santos speeds things up and runs Rey over! Things keep moving, Rey dodges but Santos DROPKICKS him down! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Rey hangs tough, and Zelina is again torn. She rallies the fans more for the LWO than for either man. Santos waistlocks, Rey switches, but Santos switches back. They go to ropes and Rey bucks the O’Conner.

Rey ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA Santos outta the ring! Fans fire up and Rey builds speed, goes up the corner to PLANCHA! Down goes Santos! Fans fire up with Rey and he hears the ring count. Rey drags Santos up, puts him in at 6 of 10, and then climbs the corner. Santos stands, Rey SEATED SENTONS! Rey keeps moving, and he CLOBBERS Santos! Both men are down and fans rally up more. But wait, Jimmy and Solo are still wreaking havoc backstage? SAMOAN SPIKE for security! Jimmy says that guy won’t be Cena’s partner, either! Back to the ring, fans rally for “619! 619!” as Rey goes to ropes.

Santos stands, he rushes in to sunset flip, but Rey rolls through to BUZZSAW! Santos is dazed, Rey calls his shot and he drop toeholds Santos onto ropes! Rey dials it up as fans go wild, but Santos SUPERKICKS Rey outta the ring! Santos takes aim, builds speed, ARROW FROM HELL!! Direct hit at the ramp and down goes Rey! Santos catches his breath while he stands back up, and then he goes up the barriers? To MOONSAULT Rey on the ramp! Zelina is worried again but Santos puts Rey back in the ring. Rey staggers and goes to the far side but Santos takes aim. “This is Awesome!” as Santos spells it out, “L! W! O!”

Santos goes corner to corner, DOUBLE KNEES! Rey wobbles, but Santos puts him back in the corner. Santos goes again, DOUBLE KNEES! Santos hoists Rey up top, climbs up after him, but Rey HEADBUTTS! Rey fires forearms and he knocks Santos down! Santos stands up while Rey steadies himself, but Santos GAMANGIRIS first! Santos climbs up again, goes to the very top, and he whistles for the SUPER STEINER! Zelina couldn’t even watch that, worried for both men. Santos goes to the apron, to SLINGSHOT SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Rey survives and Santos is a bit surprised as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns yet again and Santos has Rey against ropes. Santos CHOPS, and fans “WOO~!” as Rey staggers. Santos whips, BOOTS, and then brings Rey around. Santos picks Rey up into a GORY ESPECIAL! Rey endures being bent back, and Santos even pulls on the arms! Fans rally, Rey fights against the hold, and pops free to arm-drag! Fans fire up as REy goes to a corner, and Santos runs in, only to be put on the apron! Santos GAMANGIRIS, Rey staggers, and then Santos fires up! Santos climbs, leaps, but Rey dodges and the crossbody flops! Rey lines up a shot, runs and springboards but then Santos dodges!

Rey and Santos are both down after those belly flops, and fans rally as both men rise up. Santos runs in, scoops Rey and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans rally as Rey staggers up, but into a tilt-o-whirl torture rack! Santos runs around with Rey, then hits a RACK DROP! Cover, TWO!! Zelina is relieved again but Santos is surprised. Rey tells Santos to bring it on, there needs to be a winner. Santos storms up to CHOP! And whip, but Rey KICKS back! Rey runs to RAN- NO, Santos blocks that! Santos swings Rey up but Rey sunset flips! TWO!! Santos escapes and even Zelina is stunned! Fans fire up again, “This is Awesome!”

Rey runs in, Santos puts him on the apron but Rey ROCKS Santos first! Then Rey goes up a corner, brings Santos up to join him, and then adjusts position to fire off hands! Fans fire up as Rey calls the shot, but Santos drags Rey into a fireman’s carry! Rey fights with elbows, then pops up to SUPER RANA!! Fans are thunderous while Santos sits up in a daze! Rey DROPKICKS Santos onto ropes! Dial it up! 6 1 9 BLOCKED! Santos drags Rey into an Alabama Lift! But Rey holds the ropes for dear life! Rey then RANAS Santos back onto ropes, redials, and 619 HITS!!! Rey hurries up top, says hey to Eddie, and hit a FROG- NO!

Santos avoids the splash, CLUBS Rey, covers, TWO into the ghost pin! TWO!!! Both men escape by nanoseconds but Santos fireman’s carries! PHANTOM- TAKEDOWN! Rey has a spladle! REY WINS!!

Winner: Rey Mysterio, by pinfall (still WWE United States Champion)

And the greatest luchador of all time comes out the champion! Santos is stunned, but Rey offers him a handshake of respect. They are still familiar, aren’t they? WAIT! The Profits attack!! Dawkins & Ford mug Rey & Santos, this must be how they’re proving Lashley wrong! They hit Escobar with a BIG LARIAT! Fans boo but here comes Lashley! The All Mighty says that’s it! That’s what he wanted! But then here comes the rest of the LWO! Lashley CLOBBERS Wilde while Ford & Dawkins mug Cruz! But Dragon Lee wants to get in! Security keeps him back, he’s just here as a guest! So Wilde is fed to the REVELATION!

The fans boo but The All Mighty has his Profits! Will they soon run SmackDown with iron fists?


The LWO regroups.

They’ve all got icepacks in the medical trainer’s room, and Kayla walks in to congratulate Rey on the win. But before the team could celebrate the moment, they got jumped by The Profits. Santos says sorry, excuse him, but the Profits ruined the moment! Rey says they beat the Profits last week, and now Lashley and them act like they run SmackDown! LWO challenges Lashley & The Profits to a match at Fastlane! Let’s see how tough they are when it’s fair and square! What will happen when these factions go to war in Indianapolis?


WWE announces a huge signing!

Former AEW TBS Champion and rising star, JADE CARGILL, is now with WWE! She got 20 MILLION views on a video just for showing up at the Performance Center! Will a storm be coming for the WWE Women’s Division?


John Cena arrives backstage!

He pulls in rather fast and furious, and he storms right into the arena, that tag match contract in his hands! Will Cena find someone Jimmy & Solo haven’t destroyed to sign on the dotted line? Is there even anyone left?


Pretty Deadly has a video message.

“On July 14th, 2023, Elton prince suffered a devastating shoulder injury. Despite all odds, he is on the road to recovery.” It’s another rehab workout montage, but Elton is still in the wheelchair… Elton works on reaching out for hot tags, swinging chairs, ends up rolling downhill during a celebration, and can’t even poke eyes properly. But as he continues to work at it, he has the courage to stand up and tag in Kit! #YESBOY! #EltonStrong.

The Brawling Brutes are watching this.

Ridge Holland and Pete Dunne look at each other, and neither of them can even process this. Dunne feels maybe they should’ve broken Elton’s leg. The idiots. Will Elton & Kit hope they can stay far, far, far away from Northern Grit and the Bruiserweight?


Charlotte Flair VS Bayley w/ Damage CTRL!

The Queen did what she could to help The Empress of Tomorrow hold off the Evil Genius and her cohorts, but all that got them was a win for Iyo Sky and this rivalry rematch with the Role Model! Will Bayley make an example out of her fellow Horsewoman? Or will Charlotte make Bayley bow down?

SmackDown returns and Bayley makes her entrance, Iyo and Dakota right behind her. But then Charlotte has Bayley hold on so she can get a mic. Charlotte has a question for Bayley: What’s happened to you? Bayley is one of the Four Horsewomen, but now she’s just happy carrying Iyo’s bags. Bayley has become a stepping stone while Charlotte is still the measuring stick. And in the end, it doesn’t matter. Bayley is just in Charlotte’s way. She’ll beat Bayley tonight, and then challenge Iyo for the WWE Women’s Championship at Fastlane! Fans fire up for that, and the bell rings. Bayley CLOBBERS Charlotte!

Bayley fires off, all riled up after what Charlotte said. DMG CTRL cheers and high-fives Bayley. Bayley CHOPS Charlotte, bumps her off buckles, then stomps a mudhole in! Bayley ROCKS Charlotte, lets off, and brings Charlotte around to whip. But Charlotte reverses to send Bayley into the corner, and she CHOPS! Fans “WOO~!” and Charlotte CHOPS again! Charlotte whips, Bayley reverses but Charlotte goes up and out to BOOT Bayley down! Iyo swipes at Charlotte, then Bayley BLASTS Charlotte down! Bayley goes out to the apron, to then FLYING ELBOW Charlotte down! DMG CTRL is fired up as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Charlotte is up top, to CROSSBODY Bayley down! Fans fire up with Charlotte as she storms around. Bayley flounders to ropes, stands up, and Charlotte CHOPS her! And CHOPS her! And CHOPS her! And then CHOPS again! Fans fire up as Charlotte says one more, then CHOPS Bayley again! Charlotte swings, Bayley dodges but Charlotte scoops! FALL AWAY SLAM! Charlotte kips up and fans fire up again! Charlotte handsprings to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Bayley is still in this but Charlotte knows she’s tough. Bayley bails out to the apron, Charlotte storms over, but Bayley HOTSHOTS!

Bayley slides in, waistlocks, but Charlotte bucks the O’Conner, to then trip Bayley! Bayley scrambles, Charlotte steps over to drop a knee on Bayley’s knee! Bayley goes to a corner and Charlotte GAMANGIRIS! Bayley staggers, but she BOOTS back! But then Charlotte BOOTS back! Cover, TWO! Charlotte keeps her cool while the fans rally up. Charlotte steps on Bayley and goes to the corner, then goes up the corner, only for Bayley to YANK her down! Bayley puts Charlotte in the ropes, throw hands, then hits a STOCK DROP! Shoutout to another of the Horsewomen! Bayley then SUNSET BOMBS Charlotte into buckles! Bayley drags Charlotte to a cover, TWO!

Bayley tells fans to shut up, don’t cheer for her! Dakota and Iyo cheer her on, though, and Bayley fires forearms on Charlotte! Bayley mocks the “WOO~!” then CHOPS! Bayley CHOPS Charlotte again and again, runs, but Charlotte SPEARS her down! Cover, Charlotte wins!!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by pinfall

DMG CTRL can’t believe it, but their Role Model lost! The Queen is already wearing yellow ‘n’ block to match Fastlane’s logo, will she take that gold off Iyo? Bayley gets a mic to shout, “Cut the music, you idiots!” Bayley won’t let Charlotte just cut the line! Bayley vowed to end Charlotte, and that’s what DMG CTRL is gonna do! The three surround the ring, but here comes ASUKA! The Empress joins the Queen to run off their common enemies! Asuka gets a mic to shout “OI OI OI OI!” What do you idiots think you’re doing?! She won’t let them do whatever they want! Bayley says okay, they want a Triple Threat for the women’s title?! Then they’ve got it!!

Wait, what? Iyo is confused, but Bayley says this is totally what Asuka said. No, Iyo knows what Asuka said and it wasn’t that! But Bayley says this is so they can teach both Asuka and Charlotte a lesson! Bayley sticks her foot in Iyo’s mouth again, will the Evil Genius have to really work hard on a plan to survive Fastlane?


John Cena heads to the ring!

Sacramento fires up as Cena storms out, saying we’re getting serious tonight! Cena slides into the ring, contract still in hand. Cena also gets a mic, and he tells Sacramento, “I hear ya out there!” Sacramento chants for Cena and so he knows they hear him. And he knows that because last week, he said he was back to compete and that he wanted a match. The Bloodline didn’t take too kindly to that, though. They left Cena knocked out, but they also left him with the contract. This is the contract for a match with them at Fastlane. Yeah, a little lukewarm, because there’s a problem: Cena doesn’t have a partner.

Cena says tonight is very important, because now he has a choice to make. He could rip up the contract and act like this didn’t happen. Fans boo that idea. Or he could stand and fight. The fans like that! So what do you think the man who wears the words “Never Give Up” is gonna make? They cheer the second so he says that’s damn right! He will honor this contract! And if he doesn’t find a partner by Fastlane, then he will fight The Bloodline by himself in a 2v1 Handicap! But speaking of, here comes The Bloodline! Jimmy grins as he has the mic again. “Well, look who finally showed up.”

Cena’s out here talking about Fastlane? Did he not just see what The Bloodline’s been doing all night? They were sending messages! If you team with Cena, you get got by The Bloodline! Fans boo, but Jimmy goes to the apron to tell Cena, “You’re not making it to Fastlane!” But then Cena DECKS Jimmy! Solo stares Cena down, fans fire up, and Solo gets in the ring! Cena throws off the shirt because it is go time! Solo swings, misses, and Cena fireman’s carries, but Jimmy SUPERKICKS him! Flashbacks to last week, HIP ATTACK in the corner! Then Solo adds a HIP ATTACK in the corner! Then Jimmy whips Solo in for another HIP ATTACK!

Fans boo as Cena flops out of the ring. The Bloodline clears off the announce desk! They put Cena on it, and Jimmy raises the one. Jimmy goes up the steps but Solo stops him. Solo wants this one! Jimmy grins and nods and lets Solo climb. But L A KNIGHT is here!! Fans are thunderous as the Mega Star storms down, slides in, and he dodges Jimmy to BLAST Solo! And then he BLASTS Jimmy! Knight stomps a mudhole into Jimmy but Solo stops him! So Knight fires off haymakers! Solo TOSSES Knight, but misses the splash! JUMP NECKBREAKER! Jimmy is up, Knight scoops to POWERSLAM!

Fans fire up, and they spell it out, “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!” BIG elbow drop for Jimmy! Cena is back and he TOSSES Solo! Knight TOSSES Jimmy! Mega Star and Greatest of All Time look to each other, and Knight picks up the contract! Fans are electric as Knight signs his name! Cena can’t believe it, either! He has a tag partner for Fastlane? YEAH!! Will Cena and Knight show The Bloodline whose game is it? With EVERYBODY saying… L A KNIGHT, YEAH!!

My Thoughts:

An awesome episode of SmackDown, especially with how fired up the Sacramento crowd was for everything. Great stuff with Bloodline and such, taking logical yet still exciting turns. Karl Anderson going after The Bloodline was good, because as much as Karl didn’t want Styles getting involved, but he also wasn’t going to let The Bloodline get away with this. Though, Karl didn’t really accomplish much as he got cheated in that match. That slap from Mia was great, though. Then Jimmy & Solo going on a rampage backstage was a great way to show how Jimmy is drunk with power all because he thinks Roman will have his back. Roman most certainly won’t now that Jimmy’s actions have brought LA Knight into the story. Great save from Knight, and he will make a great team with Cena.

Great “main event” match from Charlotte VS Bayley, and that black ‘n’ yellow gear is pretty cool stuff from Charlotte. DMG CTRL of course tries to help Bayley but that backfires. And then I actually like that we’re going back to Bayley talking big and putting Iyo on the spot. The Triple Threat title match is going to be great, and is actually some mad genius thinking from Bayley. DMG CTRL can now legally interfere to make sure Iyo wins against Charlotte and Asuka, but I feel like this can also bring in Shotzi or even Bianca to counteract DMG CTRL. Either way, it’ll be some great stuff to really up things in the SmackDown Women’s Division.

Hilarious vignette from Pretty Deadly, and good response from Brawling Brutes. That feud will definitely start up again after Fastlane and give us a SmackDown contender for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships. Really good stuff out of the Grayson Waller Effect with Lashley putting the pressure on the Profits. Almost thought they were gonna jump Theory since Lashley doesn’t like Theory, but I guess that would make this faction Faces since Theory is Heel. It was nice to see Grimes back, though he does lose to Theory. Dragon Lee being here tonight makes me think he is called up to SmackDown after he screws Dominik Mysterio out of the North American title tomorrow night.

And after just an awesome US Championship match, the Profits instead go after the LWO, a logical move given the back and forth between the factions. LWO wants a Six Man Tag, but does that mean it’ll be Santos, Cruz & Wilde? Or is Rey going to take one of the spots? Either way it’ll be a good time but it feels like the All Mighty Profits are going to take that one to build their momentum towards their own title goals. Lashley VS Rey for the US Championship with Santos helping feels like the move. Maybe there’s tension created as Santos costs Rey, or as Rey says Santos can’t be bending rules just to win. It just feels like something’s going to/has to change in the group dynamic.

My Score: 8.9/10
