PLAY BY PLAY

Raw opens with MIZ ATTACKING LOGAN PAUL!

Miz is raining down fists on the social media megastar! Logan gets up but Miz RAMS Logan into a corner! And again! Logan clubs back, they scrap, Logan hits a SPINEBUSTER! Miz keeps hitting from below, referees rush out, the brawl just continues as Logan gets loose! Officials try to hold these two back, Miz gets out of the ring, but then wants back in! The refs stop Miz from sliding in and Logan cools off. Will either of these two men wait for SummerSlam to finish this?

 

Roman Reigns is here!

The Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, leads the way for The Bloodline. Paul Heyman holds the blue belt while Roman wears the block, the Usos have all their tag titles, and the Bloodline raises them up for the pyro. Madison Square Garden is packed but torn down the middle as Roman walks to the ring. And as always, Roman and the Usos raise the belts again for more pyro. Fans chant for “ROMAN! ROMAN!” and Heyman hands the mic over. Roman smiles and says, “Madison Square Garden! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” Fans are still torn but Roman tells the “Wise Man” that he doesn’t like talking anymore.

Roman hands the mic to Heyman and Heyman is rather surprised. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Island of Relevancy. Where tonight our new capital…” The mic is not working. Okay, sound guy, you must be from Jersey. He’s next one out the door. But as Heyman was saying, welcome to our capital, New York City, and their city hall, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN! This honor has been bestowed upon him by his Tribal Chief because this Sunday marks 700 DAYS of the title reign of the Head of the Table, the GOAT, the Greatest of All Time, Roman… Reigns!

And admittedly, this plays into the hands of the challenger for the Undisputed Title, because he just loves to piss on everyone’s parade. And Heyman of course means… BRRROCK! LESNARRR! Heyman asks us this, “When Randy Couture was the greatest MMA Heavyweight of all time, who ruined that party? Brock Lesnar! When the Undertaker was 21-0 at WrestleMania, who ruined that party? Brock! Lesnar! When John Cena was running around with all the Hustle, Loyalty and Respect, who took him to Suplex City and burst that bubble? BROCK! LESNAR! And now, Brock Lesnar looks at this Saturday as day number 699, and he says, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ruin the party for Roman Reigns.’

“This is why my Tribal Chief takes it so personally. Roman Reigns is tired of Brock Lesnar’s legacy being tied into the legacy of the GOAT, Roman Reigns. You think of the Knicks, you think of the Celtics. You think of the Yankees, you think of the Red Sox. You think of Hogan, you think of Macho Man. You think of Stone Cold, you think of The Rock. Well when you think of Roman Reigns, you will no longer, after Saturday, have to think of Brock Lesnar again, because the Suplexorcist is going to exorcise the demon of Brock Lesnar out of the legacy of Roman… Reigns!

“It’s enough! We’re sick of Brock Lesnar’s name! We’re sick of Brock Lesnar riding on the coattails of the greatness of Roman Reigns! IT’s time for Brock to go back to Saskatchewan and slaughter a bunch of hogs.” Heyman says this is what will happen: Anything. All Roman needs to do to keep Brock Lesnar down for the count of ten in their very last match together, he will finally rid of himself of Brock Lesnar. Which is why Roman has nothing to say tonight. Because Roman cannot stand the sound of the name “Brock Lesnar.” And after Saturday at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar, you will not be able to stand at all!

But fans chant for “Suplex City!” and then (Austin) Theory arrives! Theory says what’s so funny right now is that The Bloodline talks a lot, but they seem to forget the most important details. See, at SummerSlam, Theory won’t just take back his US Championship from Bobby Lashley, but he’ll walk down to the ring, just like he is now, cash in his Money in the Bank contract, and it won’t matter if it’s Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns, because Theory will become the NEW Undisputed WWE Universal Champion! Roman gets the mic back to tell Theory, “You just gonna stop right there? If you’re gonna come into my arena, at least step foot in my ring and acknowledge your Tribal Chief.”

Theory is hesitant to step forward but Roman says he can’t get scared now. Fans chant “Don’t Be Scared!” and Theory gets in the ring. Roman chuckles and so do the Usos. Theory is nervous! NYC should take it easy, this is his first time. Roman gets it, though. Wise Man, we like Theory, don’t we? He’s alright. Roman can appreciate what Theory’s trying to do but let’s be honest: Theory has no clue what he’s doing. He needs a Wise Man of his own! He needs someone to counsel him! Roman will do that for Theory. Here are some words of wisdom: start looking around. Analyze the situation. Daddy’s not here no more. This is Roman’s ring.

Fans chant “Daddy’s Gone!” and Roman points it out. Fans chant now “Who’s Your Daddy?” Roman says if Theory keeps messing up, Roman will be the daddy! But let’s understand the situation here: Roman runs The Garden now. Roman drops the mic, pats Theory on the back, and Jey SLAPS Theory! So Theory CLUBS Jey! Roman keeps Jey from retaliating, Theory dares someone to step up. The Bloodline spares Theory, for now. Will Theory reconsider his master plan for SummerSlam?

 

Raw returns and Theory gets a proper introduction.

The Youngest Mr. Money in the Bank says that is what he truly deserves. And he is sure we all enjoyed what Roman- Wait, Drew McIntyre is here?! SmackDown’s Scottish Warrior, and his sword, Angela, are here on Raw for MSG! Fans are fired up for it, but Theory isn’t so sure. A ref gets in the ring, this is a match!

Winners: Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley, by submission

The Showoff gets under Theory’s skin again, and now the Scottish Warrior and the All Mighty are rolling towards this weekend. Will McIntyre win the Donnybrook with Sheamus? Will Theory have his focus split too much to win much of anything at SummerSlam? But then Theory gets to the ramp, and DOUBLE SUPERKICKS from the Usos take him out!! And they hand Roman the briefcase! Roman looks it over, then kneels by Theory to return it. If Theory wants to cash in, he has to have this briefcase. And when he does, Roman wants Theory to make the right decision. Is that all the Bloodline’s way of saying Theory has no chance in Nashville?

 

It all started on July 25th, 2002.

Rey Mysterio quite literally FLEW into the WWE when he hit a CROSSBODY OF A CAGE on Christian and Lance Storm. And if that didn’t tell you he was something special, then just look at what happened after. Lucha libre on another level, and the 619 as his finisher, who didn’t love the Ultimate Underdog? And of course, his friendship and rivalry with Eddie Guerrero helped him reach the top of the mountain in 2006. Winning the Royal Rumble to headline WrestleMania 22 to take the World Heavyweight Championship from Randy Orton was proof that dreams really do come true in life.

Dominik says it is a blessing to have one of the best ever be his own father, always by his side. They made history together as a father-son tag team championship duo, and that was just one of many amazing accomplishments in Rey’s career. “Every day is a blessing. This has been the biggest ride of my life.” And it isn’t done yet!

 

The Mysterios arrive in style!

Rey and Dominik pull up, and they’ve brought Mrs. and Aliyah Mysterio, too! Tonight, we all celebrate, after the break.

 

Another mysterious video plays.

The gears of a clock are turning. More glimpses of items pertaining to John Cena, Rey Mysterio, The Undertaker and more. The bloody writing continues. “I am coming to,” but to what?

 

Backstage interview with Dolph Ziggler.

Kevin Patrick asks about Ziggler continuing to target Theory. Can he explain his actions? Ziggler says the answer is simple: Theory needs to be taught a lesson. Ziggler has seen thousands of them come and thousands of them go. Everything Theory has had as quickly as he got them was because he was handed them. Sure, he’s quick, athletic, and almost as handsome as Ziggler, but- AJ Styles walks over and says he appreciates what Ziggler is up to. The two of them seem to have a lot in common, actually. But then SHOOOOSH! Shoosh, please. Chad Gable won’t ignore such slander. Especially from two guys who are just jealous that Theory has already surpassed them.

Just like Gable surpasses their IQs. But jealousy is an ugly disease. But “the man with the golden brain” has the cure, and that is Alpha Academy beating it out of them! Hold on. Is this them challenging Ziggler and Styles to a tag match? Oh, he figured that out all on his own? Gable’s so proud. YES this is a tag match challenge! Tonight, in the Garden of Madison Square! Then challenge accepted. Also, see you out there, you Nathan Fielder wannabe. Who? Don’t worry about it. But will Gable & Otis lose from A to Z?

 

The Mysterios head to the ring!

Rey and Dom are all geared up, the Mysterios celebrate with in-ring action. The rest of the family, as well as friends, are watching backstage with a special Mysterio cake. Rey gets the mic as fans chant, “Thank You, Rey!” Rey says, “Twenty years, this is special, man. Really special. Now let me give you a little backstory. I was 14 years old when I had my first match in Tijuana. And I never imagined in a million years that I would one day perform inside a WWE ring, travel the world, make money, and create legendary rivalries for all, each and every one of you to enjoy.”

The truth is, guys Rey’s size back then just weren’t in the business. But Rey broke that stereotype and that blueprint of what a WWE Superstar should look like. “Now, as a smaller guy, and as a damn proud Latino, I became world champion at WrestleMania 22. And I made a lot of friends along the way. Friends that I wanna thank for helping pave the road for me in my career. You might know some of these names. Dean Malenko. K Dog, Viva la Raza! Batista! Kurt Angel. How ’bout Edge? And we cannot forget the great Eddie Guerrero!” Fans chant for “Eddie! Eddie!”

Rey says he loves and misses Eddie every day. Rey wouldn’t be here without Eddie, and Eddie is always watching over him, so thank you, Eddie. But tonight, Rey stands here before us, truly humble and appreciative of all the love and support the fans have given these past 20 years. Fans chant, “Thank You, Rey!” Rey says to be able to do all that with his family means even more. Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” Rey tells Angie and Aalyah that he wants to say thanks for always being there. He loves them both. And of course, for Dom, Rey is so proud of his son. Rey is proud of the man Dom’s become, and that one day, when Rey is no longer here, Dom will represent the Mysterio legacy to the fullest. Rey loves Dom.

To the fans, here and around the world, Rey wants to thank you for accepting him, always rolling with the Mysterios, and for 20 of the dopest, most awesome years of his life! And Rey has saved the best for last. Rey wants to thank all these fans here tonight. He could’ve been anywhere in the world, but he is here tonight in the legendary and iconic Madison Square Garden, celebrating 20 years! He loves you all! Gracias! Rey continues in Spanish to say he will always be here to represent the Latino culture with pride and respect. He loves you all, this means the world to him! Wait, here comes the Judgement Day from out of the crowd!

Finn Balor applauds as he approaches ringside, and Damian Priest is on the other side! The Mysterios find themselves flanked, but this match will happen fair and square, after the break.

The Mysterios VS The Judgement Day!

Raw returns, this match is already going, and Finn brings Dom up to bump off buckles. Finn CHOPS Dom, CHOPS him again, then CHOPS him again. Finn  whips corner to corner, runs in and CHOPS yet again! Finn grinds his forearm in and makes sure Rey is watching. Finn whips corner to corner again but Dom dodges! Hot tag to Rey! Rey fires off on Finn, whips him to ropes but Finn reverses to kick low! Finn runs, sunset flips but Rey slips through to basement dropkick! Rey DECKS Damian, BOOTS Finn, then tilt-o-whirl RANAS Finn down! Tag back to Dom, the Mysterios hit a DOUBLE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!

Dom gets Rey up to POWERBOMB him onto Finn! Cover, TWO! Dom bumps Finn off buckles again and again, tags Rey back in, and Rey throws haymakers. Rey climbs up the corner to trap Finn’s arm and rain down fists! Fans count along and Rey goes all the way to 10! Rey gives us some Latino Heat then whips corner to corner. Finn reverses hard and Rey bounces off buckles! Finn drags Rey over, tags in Priest, and Priest stomps Rey. Priest drags Rey up, ROCKS Rey with a right, then stalks him to ropes. Priest soaks up the heat and he CHOKES Rey on the ropes! The ref counts, Priest lets off, but then Priest drags Rey up to put in a corner.

Priest whips corner to corner hard, then he runs in to back elbow! Priest gets Rey up, BROKEN ARROW! Priest then taunts Dom before he covers Rey, TWO! Priest clamps onto an armlock and Rey endures. Fans rally, Rey fights up but Priest tags Finn. Priest scoop SLAMS Rey, Finn slingshot STOMPS Rey down! Rey sputters, Finn brings him around and throws elbows into the shoulders. Finn then clamps on a thrashing SLEEPER! Rey endures, the family rallies backstage, and Rey fights the hold. Rey slips off the scoop to ENZIGURI, tag to Dom! Dom goes up to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Dom hurries up to arm-drag Finn around! And knuckle lock, knee low, and go up, up, and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Priest tags in but Dom dodges Finn to DECK Priest! Dom dropkicks Finn out then DIVES at Priest, only to end up in a TOSS into barriers! Priest roars and Judgement Day stands tall as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Finn keeps Dom away from Rey with a knee. Finn whips, Dom kicks back! Dom hits a SLING-DOG! Fans fire up while both men are down, and Dom crawls to his corner. Finn also crawls, hot tags to Priest and Rey! Rey KICKS a leg out, ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Priest stagger sup into more KICKS, but he blocks the whip! Priest reveres, Rey goes up but Priest puts him on the apron. Rey shoulders in, GAMANGIRIS, then goes up top, SEATED SENTON! Cover, TWO! Priest is still in this and he shoves Rey. Rey KICKS Priest, runs, but into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO! Rey is still in this and Priest is furious!

Priest drags Rey up, calls his shot, and hoists Rey up, but Rey slips off the crucifix with a RANA! Priest tumbles to ropes, but Finn tags in! Rey dials it up into a LARIAT!

Winners: The Mysterios, by pinfall

That’s the way to celebrate the 20th anniversary! Will this get the Judgement Day to leave them alone? Or is this only going to escalate from here?

 

The celeb-REY-tion continues backstage.

The family cheers for Rey as the champagne is served and the conquering heroes join them! Champagne shower for Rey and Dom and then the tequila is brought out! Salud! And of course, a gift! Rey opens it up, and voila! It’s his 1997 Halloween Havoc gear! Aalyah dug it out of storage, but this is the real deal, too. But wait, Rhea Ripley is crashing the party! Dom ells her hold on, this is a special night. Aalyah tells Rhea to leave. Rhea pie faces her back, then drags Dom away! Rey pursues, and Priest BOOTS him down! Finn is there to drag Rey along the hallway! Finn says it isn’t Rey’s anniversary, it’s Finn’s birthday!

The Judgement Day stomp Rey, then get him up for a POWERBOMB through a table!! The family rushes over to check on Rey as Finn, Priest and Rhea laugh away into the shadows. Will this never end until the Mysterios are all but destroyed?

 

Bianca Belair heads to the ring!

The RawEST Women’s Champion is here in New York, ready to defend her title in her home state of Tennessee against a familiar foe in Becky Lynch. And speaking of, Becky shows up before Bianca can even speak! But then Bianca tells Becky, “Girl, uh-uh. Oh, you’re not used to anybody stopping you in your tracks, huh? Choo-choo~! Now Becky, we all know that you’ve got the biggEST mouth in the WWE, but The EST didn’t come here to NYC to hear you run it. So I’mma let you finish, but before you start all that complaining, let me remind you of a few things, okay? I am the strongEST, the roughEST, the toughEST, and the quickEST.”

Becky wants to say her part but Bianca interrupts her again, so Becky sucker punches her! Becky dares Bianca to talk now, but Bianca trips Becky to fire off forearms!

The refs rush out again but fans want to “Let Them Fight!” Becky and Bianca reach out but the officials keep them apart. Another grudge will have to wait, will Bianca just have to wait to get at the Big Time?

 

Backstage interview with Alexa Bliss.

Sarah says Alexa faces a familiar opponent in Doudrop. What is her mindset going into this? And what will Alexa look for next? Alexa says it’s fine Doudrop keeps wanting these matches, but here’s what she doesn’t get. What is the dynamic of Piper Niven and Nikki A.S.H? They make fun of Alexa for having Lily, but why are they friends? They don’t benefit anything from it. Alexa loves Lily but she doesn’t need Lily and Lily doesn’t need Alexa. Lily’s an independent woman who makes her own money through WWE Shop.

But here’s why Alexa is number one. Becky and Bianca, it doesn’t matter who wins, you both better watch out. Alexa will reclaim her place at the top of the Raw Women’s Division. Alexa blows a kiss, but will she get #Doudropped on the road back to the title?

 

The medical team checks Rey out.

He’s clutching his shoulder, but then Judgement Day comes back! Dom tells them to not even get close, as does security. But then Rhea gets around to BOOT Rey in the bad arm! “Happy 20th, Rey!” Rhea laughs as she runs off again! Are these jackals not done with him tonight?

AJ Styles talks with Logan Paul backstage.

Styles loved what Logan did with Miz tonight. It was phenomenal, no pun intended. Now, Styles doesn’t want there to be any confusion. He likes what Logan did out there, but he doesn’t necessarily like Logan Paul himself, he doesn’t really know Logan that well. But he likes The Miz way less, so do everyone a favor and shut Miz up at SummerSlam. Logan says he’s got that covered. Logan heads for gorilla, will #ImPAULsiveTV be must-see?

 

Logan Paul heads to the ring!

He’s got a tuxedo on and the set of ImPAULsive TV is waiting for him. “New York Cityyyy~! We are at Madison Square Garden, and guys, I gotta say, because my brother is actually going to be fighting here next weekend.” Fans are torn on Jake Paul, but Logan says that’s next weekend. Today, tonight, is Monday Night Raw! And the debut of ImPAULsiveTV! It’s like MizTV, but people actually watch. So let’s get impulsive. Logan calls Miz out to finish what they started! They can finish this here in the Mecca of fight sport entertainment! Oh, Miz doesn’t come out? That’s surprising. This is Miz’s MO, getting all the attention!

Logan calls Miz out more, but there’s still no response. Miz is probably trembling backstage with his shriveled little prunes. But wait! Here comes MARYSE! And she tells Logan that first, she doesn’t appreciate him talking about her amazing, awesome, fantastic husband, star of their hit reality show, Miz & Mrs., which has a big double episode finale tonight on the USA Network after Raw, which will be awesome. Second, Logan doesn’t talk about her kids ever again! And most of all, she doesn’t like him talking about her man’s gen… genito… his PACKAGE! But fans still chant “TINY BALLS!” Maryse says that’s not a thing!

Maryse puts her hand up and copies Miz, “When my hand goes up, your mouths go shut!” But she’ll have you know, Logan~, that the average size of a man’s… testicles, is between 1.8 and 2 inches. The Miz’s balls are more like these she has here. Whoa, who measures their nuts? Miz returns, finally being egged on too much by Logan. And Miz says HE does. And so does every single man in MSG. But this isn’t about that. This is about Miz VS Logan at SummerSlam! Miz wants to explain something to Logan. Miz gave him everything here! If not for Miz, Logan wouldn’t be in the WWE, wouldn’t have gone to WrestleMania, and wouldn’t be on SummerSlam! Logan owes Miz!

So Miz will be perfectly clear! Miz taught Logan everything he knows but not everything Miz knows. So at SummerSlam, you won’t get fun loving dad Miz, or reality show TV Miz. You are getting Big Moment Miz! The TWO-TIME GRAND SLAM WINNER Miz! John Cena getting beat in the main event Miz! And when the dust settles, you and every moron watching will know that Miz is AWW- SHUT UP!! Logan called Miz out to throw down and all Miz does is talk! But Logan always knew Miz had tiny- Maryse slaps the mic away! Wow, congrats, Maryse. You’ve got bigger balls than your husband.

Maryse keeps Miz back, but here comes CIAMPA! Logan brawls with Ciampa, Miz gets in but Logan just tackles him! But Ciampa CLOBBERS Logan from behind! Ciampa helps Miz up, and Miz drags Logan up. But Logan tackles Miz down! Ciampa CLOBBERS Logan again, they beat Logan down 2v1, and even the ImPAULsive sign falls on Logan! Miz and Ciampa tear that up, throw it out, and Ciampa drags Logan up again. Miz hooks Logan up for a SKULL CRUSHIGN FINALE! Miz smirks as he looks down on Logan. Fans want that “One More Time!” but Miz takes off his jacket to sling over his shoulder. Miz and Ciampa fist bump, but will Logan finally get his revenge on Saturday?

 

Backstage interview with the Street Profits AND the Usos.

Kevin Patrick introduces each team one at a time, and even adds the special guest referee, Double J, Jeff Jarrett! The Usos and The Profits have the Six Man Tag main event still to come, but they will be 2v2 at SummerSlam for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. But Ford won’t let Kevin get to his questions. Tonight, the Usos get a preview of what happens this Saturday. YESSIR! Jey says they’ll just body the Profits again, like they did at MITB! YESSIR! Ford says they didn’t body nobody then. The teams start pushing and Jarrett tells EVERYONE to shut up! Anyone who gets outta line tonight, Jarrett will remember at SummerSlam. So you better keep the peace.

Jarrett heads off, Profits and Usos tell each other that Jarrett just told the other team off. The Profits are up and #WeWantTheSmoke! Well good, but you’re still the twos, because #WeTheOnes! But then Jarrett returns and they all calm down. Ain’t he great?

 

AJ Styles & Dolph Ziggler VS The Alpha Academy!

Two #PhenomenalShowoffs quickly bonded over their disdain for cocky newbies like Theory, but Chad Gable & Otis claim it’s all just jealousy. Will Styles & Ziggler prove it’s nothing of the sort? Or will they SHOOOOSH?

Raw returns and the Alpha Academy make their entrance. Chad has a mic to SHOOOOSH Madison Square Garden. “New York, I’m disappointed in you. You know better than that. You do not boo an Olympian. You do not boo a man with a Master’s Degree, and you do not boo a man who did it with an immaculate 4.0 GPA. A Thank Yew~!” Fans still boo anyway. Gable says they’re the ones who live on a decomposing, putrid excuse of an island, okay? An island, in fact, that will end up at the bottom of the ocean under the weight of the human garbage that lives on it! Gable says not to get mad, that’s just science!

And when it comes to human garbage, Gable tells Styles and Ziggler are just another thrown-together team that will just end up a disappointment. Like an organization that is an embarrassment, the New York Knicks. So everyone do NYC a favor and let them get a look at a real tag team! The intellect, Chad Gable. The tree trunk, Otis! A THANK YEW~! The teams sort out, Ziggler and Gable start. They tie up, go around, Gable drags Ziggler down to facelock but Ziggler slips around to half nelson and cradle, ONE! DROPKICK! Ziggler drags Gable up and over, tag to Styles, and they mug Gable.

Styles CLUBS Gable, but Gable throat chops! Gable says “SHOOSH!” then runs, but Styles hurdles and drops to then DROPKICK! Gable bails out, the ring count starts, but Styles slingshots to FLYING FOREARM! Down goes Gable, Styles drags him and his big brain back up as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and the Academy double whips Styles for a double back drop! Styles lands hard, Otis DECKS Ziggler! Otis covers Styles, TWO! Otis drags Styles up, clamps on a neck wrench, but fans rally as Styles fights up. Styles JAWBREAKERS, but Otis back suplexes! Styles lands on his feet then jumps, but Otis catches him! Styles sunset flips through, but Otis stays up. Otis jumps but Styles avoids the elbow drop! Styles hurries, hot tag to Ziggler! Ziggler dodges Otis, DECKS Gable, fires off on Otis and KNEES him! Ziggler runs, into the WRECKER ELBOW! Otis shouts, “For the Academy!”

Otis taunts Ziggler, tags Gable in, and Gable says, “Look at that face!” Gable drags Ziggler up, tells fans to SHOOSH, then he hits an EXPLODER! Ziggler flounders while Gable demands he get up. Gable waistlocks, CHAOS THEORY! “A THANK YEW~!” Fans boo but Gable drags Ziggler to a drop zone. Gable goes up, MOONSAULTS, but has to land on his feet as Ziggler dodges! SUPERKICK! Cover, Otis breaks it! Otis sees Styles jump in and catches him! But Ziggler SUPERKICKS Otis! Styles PELES and Otis falls out! Gable throat chops Ziggler then waistlocks Styles Styles bucks that into a ZIGZAG! Cover, A to Z wins!

Winners: AJ Styles & Dolph Ziggler, by pinfall

And they get outta there before Otis returns! The Academy failed their own challenge, will they have to rethink their strategies? Or have we seen the start of a phenomenal new tag team?

 

BREAKING NEWS for SummerSlam!

After everything the Judgement Day has been doing to Rey Mysterio, we’re getting a NO DISQUALIFICATIONS Tag Team match! Will Rey & Dom use everything they can get their hands on to beat down Finn & Priest? Or will this be what finally leaves the lucha libre legend and his legacy lying on the mat for good?

 

Six Man Tag: Matt Riddle & The Street Profits VS The Bloodline!

The Tribal Chief and the Usos head out first for their round of pyro, but those won’t be the only fireworks tonight. Will the #BROfits be knocked down before everything explodes in Nashville? Or will the undisputed champions of the WWE see they aren’t as unstoppable as they think?

Raw returns and the Profits make their entrance, followed by Riddle’s. The trios sort out and Dawkins starts with Jimmy. They circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Dawkins turns things but Jimmy headlocks, Dawkins powers out, Jimmy urns him over, but things keep moving, Dawkins hurdles, Jimmy shoves, Dawkins hurdles again to FLYING ELBOW! Cover, ONE, but Dawkins facelocks. Tag to Ford, they double whip and dropkick Jimmy down! Then back suplex SPLASH! Cover, ONE! Ford wrenches but Jimmy powers Ford to the Bloodline’s corner! Tag to Jey, Jey runs in to forearm smash! Jey CLUBS Ford down then talks trash.

Jey has Ford on ropes, CHOKES him, but the ref counts. Jey lets off, but Roman adds on while the ref is distracted! Roman gets away with that, Jey gets Ford with a chinlock then he CLUBS Ford down. Fans rally “UCE! SO!” as Jey puts Ford in a corner. Jey whips corner to corner, Ford goes up and over and then DROPKICKS! Ford taunts Roman’s “ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” then tags Riddle in. Ford wrenches an arm, Riddle KICKS Jey and ROCKS him with a forearm. Riddle fires off, KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! The ref counts, Riddle lets off Jey at 4, but then Jimmy runs in. Riddle dumps Jimmy out, tags Ford in, and Ford FLIES!

Direct hit on the Usos at the ramp and Ford lands on his feet! MSG is fired up with Ford as he dances over the Usos and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Jey drags Riddle up for a BIG back suplex! Jey raises the fingers, #WeTheOnes, and then Jey pushes Riddle to the Bloodline corner. Jey stomps a mudhole into Riddle, Jimmy tags in and he stomps away. Jey stomps away, too, then gets out of the ring. Roman talks trash on Riddle, and Jimmy wants to gift The Bro to him! Roman looks around and hears the fans chanting for him. So the Tribal Chief decides to tag in! Fans cheer and jeer as Roman drags Riddle up to bump off buckles, and fire off those point-blank lariats! Roman goes all the way to ten, then he runs to LEAPING LARIAT Riddle down!

Roman dares the Profits to do something as he drags Riddle up. Roman reels Riddle in, snap suplexes, then covers, TWO! Roman drags Riddle up again and he wrenches the arm to YANK on it. Tag to Jey, they mug Riddle with a shot to the ribs. Riddle falls and sputters, Heyman says that was a magnificent round from the Tribal Chief. Jey drags Riddle up to ROCK him with an uppercut! Riddle staggers to a corner, Jey taunts the Profits and runs corner to corner, but Riddle moves! The splash hits post and fans fire up! Both men crwal, hot tag to Ford!

Roman sneaks a tag in before Ford hits a BIG back suplex on Jey! Ford kips up, but turns around into Roman’s URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Ford survives but Roman argues the count. The ref says that was fair, so Roman drags Ford up to RAM him into the Bloodline corner. Roman throws hands, CLUBS Ford in the chest, then tags in Jimmy. Jimmy and Roman mug Ford, who is busted open along his eyebrow and bridge of the nose.

Ford gets to the corner and Roman mocks Ford’s pain. Jey tags in and Jimmy scoops Ford, BACKBREAKER AX HANDLE COMBO! Cover, TWO! Ford is still in this but Jey stays on him as Raw goes to break.

Riddle then SPRINGBOARD FLOATING BROS! He takes out the Usos right in front of commentary!

The Usos regroup, but Dawkins POUNCES them both into the timekeeper’s area! But Roman SMACKS Dawkins off the desk, RAMS him into the steel steps, and gets back on the apron. FINAL FLASH in the ropes!! DRAPING DDT!!

Fans are thunderous as Riddle hears those voices, bro! Roman rises, RK- NO, Roman TOSSES Riddle! “OOAH~!” SPEAR!! Cover, The Bloodline wins!

Winners: The Bloodline, by pinfall

The Tribal Chief turns momentum around at the last moment, and he stands tall with his cousins once again! Will this be how things go for SummerSlam? Speaking of, “BURN IT DOWN~!” Seth Rollins is here now that Riddle is down and out! The Visionary has the fans singing “OH~ OH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins waves bye as he goes past Roman. Riddle flounders up but Rollins CLOBBERS him! Rollins tosses Riddle out of the ring, gets the steel steps in hand, and he RAMS Riddle down! Rollins then hits a CURB STOMP to the floor! But that isn’t enough for Rollins, he drags Riddle to the steps and sets him against them.

Fans are torn between singing and booing as Rollins runs up, STEEL STEP CURB STOMP!! Rollins laughs like the maniacal villain he is! Will the Visionary put the Bro down in Nashville? Or will Riddle be able to avenge himself against Seth Freakin’ Rollins?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Raw, and the start of the new era in WWE creative! Vince is out, HHH is in, and we already got to see so much change just in how the show is put together that makes it so much better. Opening with Miz and Logan brawling was so unexpected, I laughed and had a great time seeing that. However, it then made them still doing ImPAULsive TV later redundant. Maybe they should’ve opened the night with ImPAULsive TV or should have waited for that segment for Logan to call Miz out and we get the brawl. Well, either way, both segments in a nutshell were great, it just seems like a lot of Logan and Miz, and boy did Maryse struggle to really make this last “Miz does (not) have tiny balls” promo work. As much as fans like chanting at Miz about that, I hope this is the last hurrah of that since Vince is out.

A great bunch of stuff with Theory and all the stories connected through him. Roman burns Theory’s kayfabe in bringing up Vince being gone, but he does show good guts standing up to The Bloodline. Then he goes and steps in it right after, as is his character. Great match with McIntyre 1v1, which was a surprise in itself, but of course the Brawling Brutes show up, too. Then we got a great “impromptu” tag match, and of course Ziggler gets involved again. McIntyre and Lashley get the win here, but McIntyre is still going to win that Donnybrook. Not sure about Lashley now, but there is still Friday for the go-home math. Theory getting knocked down by the superkicks was great, too.

Great career highlight vignette for Rey Mysterio, great promo from Rey himself, though he might’ve started stretching the end to make sure Finn and Priest had time to make their way in from the crowd. Really good match between Mysterios and Judgement Day, and of course the Mysterios win for Rey’s 20th anniversary. Judgement Day getting at them the rest of the night was rather interesting, though. Rhea Ripley’s return, especially with Aalyah getting in her face, I feel like there are plans for a Mixed Six where Aalyah gets in the ring. That No DQ tag rematch at SummerSlam is going to allow Rhea and Aalyah to get involved, setting up the 3v3.

Bianca and Becky had a good segment that also turned into a brawl, though they probably could’ve done a bit more with it. It doesn’t really change the math, either, in that I can’t be sure who wins. I liked that Alexa called them both out either way, and then she had a good match with Piper. Alexa is probably next for the title, and I feel like the next phase for Piper and Nikki should be that Nikki finally ditches the superhero costume. It was a good concept but WWE dropped the ball almost on purpose, so HHH Era WWE just needs to reset Nikki into Nikki Cross. And with that, the Women’s Tag titles return and Piper & Nikki have a chance at them.

I liked Styles’ interaction with Logan, and his interaction with Ziggler and the Alpha Academy. Really good match from Styles & Ziggler VS The Alpha Academy, and a good win for Face Ziggler. Whatever happens at SummerSlam, Ziggler and Theory are going to have a great feud to help Theory really get to where he needs to be before truly being the top guy Vince was making him. Good interaction from Usos, Profits and Jarrett. Jarrett was like the teacher getting the class to behave. And of course, an awesome Six Man Tag. The Bloodline wins, of course, so they can have momentum, and also to keep there from being a cash-in attempt by Theory.

I almost didn’t think Rollins was going to show, but then he wrecked Riddle. I think Riddle wins at SummerSlam so that even though he’s banned from challenging Roman, Riddle can immediately be a contender the moment Roman drops the belts.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

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

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

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

 

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

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

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over.

Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool.

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

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

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

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

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

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away.

The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

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

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

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

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW!

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

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

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

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

OFFICIAL RESULTS

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

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

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

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

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

Lee digs his boots in at the ropes, scrapes Shibata out of the ring, then soaks up the heat.

Lee goes out after Shibata, RAMS him into railing, then taunts everyone while Collision goes to break.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

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

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

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

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

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

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it!

Angelico DECKS Garcia! Angelico hauls Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia slips free and kicks! Then TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! The fans fire up while both men are down! Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

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

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

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

 

Pac speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

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

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
