PLAY BY PLAY

Becky Lynch is here!

The Man didn’t get the title back, and now she has an arm in a sling. If not for those things, she’d be happier to be in Houston. Becky gets the mic while fans cheer her on. “Houston, welcome to the Big Time! Now, in everything that I do, I give it my all. And in the past, I’ve talked about hitting rock bottom, and I’ve talked about not knowing who I was when I lost the title at WrestleMania. But at SummerSlam, I am happy to say I remembered who the hell I am. And it ain’t in the fancy clothes, and it ain’t in the constant need for glory or validation, no. It is in the determination. It is in the persistence. It is in the relentlessness. It is in owning every mistake I ever made.

“It is in the pursuit to be better today than I was yesterday.” Fans cheer that sentiment, and Becky says that when she separated her shoulder at SummerSlam, she had two choices: give up, or give it everything she had. And so, she grit her teeth and fought through the 20 most painful minutes of her career. And believe her, they were painful, but not as much as realizing that she had become separated from reality. She did what she had to do, not only for herself but for the greatest women’s division ever! For all the women who work their asses off every single week in the back.

And so, when the referee counted three, her shoulders on the mat, Becky knew she had given her best, but it just wasn’t good enough. But she was reminded that she is not defined by one match. No, she defines the matches. And she is not defined by a title, SHE defines the title. And she won’t be defined by any man, because she defines THE MAN! And so, in a new ear, a new comeback story starts now. But she must give credit where it is due, and that is to the superstar who pushed her all year to be the B E S T that she can be. “Bianca Belair, get your ass out here.” Bianca obliges! Fans fire up as the RawEST Women’s Champion skips to the ring.

Fans cheer for the “E S T! E S T!” as Bianca gets a mic. Bianca tells Becky, “You not only defined The Man, but you are The Man.” The two hug it out and fans cheer more. Becky says Bianca can hold it down, and she’ll see her soon. Becky heads out as fans cheer for her again. Bianca says she has nothing but respect for Becky. And we know some people may be questioning how that can be, and best believe Bianca never forgot all the times Becky shakes her hand just to use the other to smack her in the face. But Bianca has never wanted to be handed anything. The title is only worth the amount of work put in to keep it, and Becky made Bianca put in the work.

So yes, Bianca shook Becky’s hand and there is now mutual respect. To be able to gain the respect of someone like Becky Lynch, that means something. Bianca has learned so much from Becky, and now she has a target on her back, but she will never be caught slipping. That is why she is still Raw Women’s Champion! Fans cheer that, too. Bianca says ready so she doesn’t have to get ready, and that means whoever is next. Whether it’s Bayley or her little friends who all thought it was funny to surprise Bianca at Summerslam, or- Wait, speaking of! Becky is under attack by Bayley, Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky! With a chair!!

Bianca rushes to the back as Bayley digs the chair into Becky’s bad shoulder! Bianca arrives but Bayley and her buddies have bailed already! Medics check on Becky’s arm, but when will Bianca get her hands on The Role Model and her new friends?

 

The Legacy of the WWE United States Championship.

Narrated by John “Bradshaw” Layfield. “America. A country built on opportunity deserves a champion that upholds its great legacy. A legacy of greatness is painted in red, white and blue.” Harley Race, Sgt. Slaughter, Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Scott Hall, JBL, Eddie Guerrero, John Cena, just to name a few. Ricky Steamboat was a proud champion, as were Booker T, Kofi Kingston, and now Bobby Lashley. “The United States Championship has helped shape the careers of 20+ Hall of Famers, and will continue to do so well into the future of the WWE.” And that new chapter starts NOW!

 

Logan Paul tweets his feelings after SummerSlam.

He knows he’s done a lot of crazy stuff in his life, but SummerSlam was by far the coolest. He is so addicted, he has found his calling. And he called the WWE executives, he has a multi-year, multi-event contract in the works> He is ready to get more of that energy from the jampacked arenas. He doesn’t know when or where, but we will see a massive third match and beyond. He is so happy to be part of the WWE, see you all soon!

She got hit with a chair, her arm got caught in the chair, can she get some ice?

Bayley talks with her new friends backstage.

She told them this is how it was going to be! They will take over. Sarah asks why Bayley targeted Becky, but Bayley asks, “Targeted? Is that what she thinks? Conceited! This isn’t about Becky and this is not about Bianca. This is about us! And you’ll see what I mean soon enough.” Bayley, Sky & Kai pass by the Usos and they all say hey. Now Sarah asks the Usos about defending their tag titles tonight against the Msyterios just days after SummerSlam. Same as they always are: 100%! SummerSlam was business as usual for the Bloodline! They beat the Profits, again. Roman Reigns beat Lesnar again. And tonight, the Usos beat the Mysterios… again! Because they the twos, and #WeTheOnes!

 

Seth Rollins is here!

The Visionary seems to be in a good mood. He didn’t get a SummerSlam match but he still got to stomp Matt Riddle down when The Bro came looking for a fight. Rollins gets a mic to welcome us to Monday Night Rollins! “And I am your host for tonight’s festivities. I am the Visionary, I am the revolutionary, I am…” Fans cheer “SETH! FREAKIN’! ROLLINS!” That’s right! And tonight is a night for celebration! Because we don’t have to see and we don’t have to hear that idiot, Riddle! Fans boo but Rollins says he gives credit where it is due. IT takes a lot of guts to do what Riddle did, showing up when he’s not cleared.

But there is a thin line between gutsy and stupid, and Riddle has crossed that stupid line more times than Rollins can count! But… There is a silver lining to this. “Riddle has wanted so badly to be like his big bro, Randy~. And now he’s on the shelf with a career threatening injury, just like Randy! HAHAHA!” Fans boo more but Rollins says there’s another silver lining. Now that Riddle is out of the way, Rollins can turn his attention… to Roman Reigns! And the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. But wait, the Street Profits are here! Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins have mics but Rollins says no no no no no! SHUT IT DOWN! SHUT THE MUSIC OFF! NO CUPS!!

Rollins knows the Profits- Don’t look at the fans! STOP! Fans cheer, the Profits encourage it, and Rollins gets annoyed. He knows they’re boys with Riddle but… OH SHUT UP! Rollins knows we’re in Houston, the Rockets’ home, so they’re used to watching losers! But Rollins doesn’t want to share any air space with the biggest losers in ALL the WWE! HAHAHA! How many times have the lost to the Usos now? One, two, three MILLION? Rollins lost count of that, too! The Profits suck so much as a team, they should just break up. Pack it in, go to the back, this is Rollins’ time, baby! HAHAHA!

Dawkins asks Rollins, “Didn’t we beat you to become Raw Tag Team Champions?” Ford says wait! They know who this is now! The same guy who got his ass whooped by Cody Rhodes when Cody only had one booby! Oh shut up!! You come out here for a fight, did you?! You wanna fight?! Rollins would love nothing more to come down and stomp both of them into the stage, but that’s 2v1, that’s not fair. Maybe if there was one, maybe. So split up, one of you come back, we can do this then. Or, another way. Houston, do you wanna see one of the Profits beat the crap outta Seth tonight? “YES!” Well Seth, be careful what you wish for.

So they’ll figure this out the fair and proper way. They’ll do this rock, paper, scissors! Get a ref out here! This is the only time we see the Profits fight. A ref appears and here goes. Rock, paper, scissors- Oh shoot, Ford threw his mic at Dawkins and brings the ref to the ring! But then he manages to avoid Rollins’ stomp! Rollins rushes out but Ford gets in! Rollins says that’s fine, that’s fine! He gets in again, but Ford clotheslines him out right at the bell!

Fans boo but Rollins snarls as he goes back for Ford. Rollins CHOPS Ford against ropes, then brings Ford around to CHOP him in the corner.

Cover, TWO! Ford is still in this but Rollins wraps on a rear bearhug. Ford endures, fans rally, and Ford fights up to his feet.

Ford grows frustrated but Rollins is a Grand Slam Champion, after all. Rollins stands, Ford stands, Rollins reels Ford in. Ford switches, Rollins witches, Ford slips out of the suplex this time to run and BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Ford grits his teeth, crawls to a corner and climbs up. Rollins hurries after Ford, anchors a leg, but Ford CLUBS Rollins and throws haymakers! Rollins staggers away, Ford gets back in, but Rollins PELES! Roll-up, TWO! Rollins aims, SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!

Ford crawls to the cover, ROPEBREAK!! Rollins survives by a literal foot! Ford brushes that off to get up the corner again. But Rollins trips Ford up! Then drags him out, into a RUNNING BUCKLE BOMB!! And then FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Rollins can’t believe Ford survived that! Rollins has a wild look in his eyes as fans say “This is Awesome!” Rollins goes up a corner, laughs and says, “Who wants the smoke now, bitch?” FROG SPLASH FLOP!!

Gable says “SHOOOOSH! Houston, you have a problem. And tonight that problem comes to you in the form of Master Gable, a real athlete, an Olympian, with a brain so big and beautiful, it’s twice the size of Texas, baby!” Gable says he’ll dispose of his opponents, move on and beat that ignoramus, AJ Styles, and then beat the US Champion, Bobby Lashley, to put this country on his back again. He’ll represent us all in the way only Master Gable is able. And when he does, he won’t have to cheat. Not like that failure of a team known as the Houston Astros! A THANK YEW~!

Edge is here!

And on this day, he sees clearly! Yes, the Rated R Superstar is back to his old self again! Edge gets a mic as fans cheer him on, and he says, “Houston, thank you for that. Because to be fair, for the last few months, I’ve been a bit of an a-hole. But that all changes now, because now, we both get what we want. I’ll keep this real simple. I created Judgement Day with the thought that I was gonna help underutilized talent to realize their full potential. That maybe I could pass on some knowledge that I’ve accumulated over my 30 year career to Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley. Yeah, let ’em know.” Fans boo and Edge says he has to be honest, they were just getting started.

But apparently, that first taste of power clouded their judgment, They thought they learned all there was to learn. But they were wrong! TO be fair, along with Finn Balor, they pulled one over on him. He didn’t see that coming, and that is rare. But if you witnessed SummerSlam, you saw Edge pull himself out of the Hell they put him in! “And now it’s time to kill what I created. FINN! DAMIAN! RHEA! I am going to END Judgement Day!” Short and sweet, just as he said! Will the Rated R Superstar eradicate of the Prince, the Punisher and the Eradicator?

 

The Mysterios prepare backstage.

Father and son are ready, but Kevin Patrick walks in to first congratulate them on their win against The Judgement Day at SummerSlam, and then ask them about tonight’s tag title match. Rey says the shift in focus is possible because The Judgement Day are in their rearview. The Judgement Day has Edge to worry about. And Rey and Edge go way back, so they have no idea how much of a savage Edge can be. IN fact, Rey & Edge were once tag team champions. That is a bond that lasts forever, and Rey can’t thank Edge enough in helping Rey & Dom avenge themselves and their familia.

But as far as tonight goes, they’re about one thing and one thing only: Defeating the Usos and becoming the UNDISPUTED WWE Tag Team Champions! Here, Houston, VIVA MI RAZA! Dom and Rey are fired up, will the lucha libre lineage be the first-ever TWO-TIME father-son tag team champions?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley, Kai & Sky.

Sarah wants to bring up SummerSlam but Bayley cuts her off. They’re not talking about Bianca or Becky, are they? They’re talking about Kai, Sky and Bayley! Yes, Sarah is supposed to ask questions, but Bayley asks us, “What did you expect?” Have we not been watching the same show she’s been watching? These idiots have been on a downward spiral ever since Bayley left, so she took it as a cry for help. The WWE needed the Role Model, so she outsourced to two of the very best, who have waited far too long for this moment!

Kai says they know how to play the game. They know what they want and how to get there, and soon, they will be in full control. Sky says in Japanese and English, “Bianca, see you out there.”

Bianca Belair VS Iyo Sky!

The RawEST Women’s Champion respects Becky, so that is why it set her off that Bayley, Kai & Sky would disrespect Becky and attack her backstage. Will Bianca get some semblance of revenge by taking out the Evil Genius? Or is this just the start of the takeover?

The bell rings and Bianca and Sky rush in! Bianca RAMS Sky to a corner, bumps her off buckles, then stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Bianca lets off to RAM into Sky with more shoulders. Sky shoves Bianca away but Bianca comes back, throwing off the earrings. Bianca whips, Sky reverses but Bianca goes up and over! Bianca eggs Sky on then dropkicks her down! Bianca kips up and fans fire up, but Sky puts Bianca on the apron. Sky ducks the haymaker to HOTSHOT! Sky then goes out to the apron for an ASAI MOONSAULT! Direct hit and the Evil Genius is all smiles as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Bianca fights a chinlock. Bianca scoops and SLAMS Sky, goes to a corner, and she dodges Sky as she runs in. Bianca ROCKS Sky, jumps in and runs Sky over! Bianca rallies, dropkicks then kips up! Fans fire up with Bianca and she gets Sky for a chicken wing! But Sky victory rolls through to put Bianca on ropes! Sky runs in, DOUBLJ EKENES to the back! Bianca is down, Sky has her in the corner and stomps a mudhole in! Sky digs both boots in, then SWINGING KNEES her down! Cocky cover, TWO! Sky keeps on Bianca with forearms, but Bianca shoves her away. Sky catches the haymaker for a takedown!

Sky has a modified facelock but Bianca endures. Bianca drags Sky up but Sky uses that to hit a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Sky grows frustrated but this is why Bianca is the toughEST. Sky goes to a corner and climbs up, to CROSSBODY! But Bianca rolls through, brings her up, and FALL AWAY SLAMS! Fans fire up as Bianca grits her teeth and gets back up. Bianca drags Sky up with the chicken wings, to then GlamEST SLAM! And the HANDSPRING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Bianca is surprised but this is why Sky got all the NXT Women’s Championships. Bianca brings Sky up, Sky fires shots, but Bianca scoop SLAMS!

Bianca hurries up the corner, but of course, Bayley and Kai appear from the crowd side. Bianca is annoyed, but Sky SHOTEIS her in the distraction! Sky goes up after Bianca, fires off shots, then brings Bianca in, for a SUPER STEINER! Bianca goes flying and Sky covers, TWO! Bayley and Kai coach Sky, she still has control. Bianca is at the ropes and Sky runs in. Bianca elbows her away, suplexes, but Sky cradle counters! TWO and Bianca deadlifts Sky for a suplex SLAM! Fans fire up while both women are down!

The Miz gives Ciampa a pep talk.

The US Championship’s legacy is highlighted by Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, The Miz himself, and now Ciampa! But Kevin Patrick walks over to ask them about how things didn’t go Miz’s way against Logan Paul, or in his Triple Threat tonight. But Ciampa- Oh, what part didn’t go his way? Miz got cheated against Logan Paul! A formidable fighter? Sure. An incredible athlete? Yeah. But the WWE is not a playground for an entitled YouTuber to cash a paycheck. Miz had Logan where he wanted him, he had Logan’s moveset dissected and beat. But then Styles blindsided Ciampa like the coward he ism, helping Logan get a tainted victory.

Now why would Styles do that? Was Styles the one training Logan just to beat Miz? Those are the questions we should be asking, but for tonight, Ciampa will make Styles realize he chose the wrong side. Ciampa used to respect Styles and his accomplishments, both before the WWE and coming to the WWE. But Styles chose to support a social media influencer who makes a mockery of their home! So tonight, when Ciampa crushes Styles’ dreams, it will be that much more satisfying.

Miz says to look at the passion and devotion in those eyes. Ciampa may have not helped Miz win at SummerSlam, but Miz will help Ciampa become the next elite WWE Superstar! Under Miz’s tutelage, we are looking at the NEXT WWE US Champion! Will the Hollywood A-Lister make all of Ciampa’s WWE dreams come true?

Miz celebrates with his guy, because they beat Styles for this opportunity! Will Miz help Ciampa do this to Lashley, too? Speaking of…

Backstage interview with Bobby Lashley.

The All Mighty leaves Austin Theory behind, and now has Ciampa coming next week. He wouldn’t have it any other way. Lashley wants to defend this title every week because he lives for this. Ciampa proved he is a brawler, he is tough and hungry, and that makes him dangerous. Especially with that conniving Miz in his corner. But Lashley will defeat anyone, anywhere, any time! He’s bringing respect back tot his title. Lashley humbled Theory, and he will give Ciampa a reality check by putting him in the Hurt Lock. Will the All Mighty make Ciampa and Miz pay for their plotting and scheming?

My Thoughts:

A pretty awesome Raw to follow up an awesome SummerSlam! So jam-packed, but full of stuff that not only entertains but progresses stories. Great stuff for the WWE United States Championship to really pump it and the midcard up. I would’ve thought one giant Six Man with all those contenders would’ve been good enough, but getting two separate Triple Threats and then the 1v1 match was great to give everyone time to shine, and to fill out the three hour requirement. Great to see that we got Styles VS Ciampa out of this, and of course Miz helps Ciampa win, but that’s definitely a fitting move in this story. Lashley VS Ciampa next week will also be in Cleveland, Miz’s hometown, you can beat Miz will do everything he can to help Ciampa against Lashley, and who knows which way it goes.

A big bummer Becky Lynch hurt her shoulder at SummerSlam, but we still got awesome stuff out of the Raw Women’s Division. Bianca still has allies against Bayley, Kai & Sky with Alexa Bliss and Asuka also being targets of the new faction. Even before the attack, Alexa VS Asuka was getting all sorts of stuff in. Then Bianca VS Sky was awesome match, though of course Bayley and Kai showed up, prompting Alexa and Asuka to be on Team EST. While another No Contest finish to a women’s match is a bit much, at least it was with an awesome brawl. A Six Woman Tag has to happen now, and then we see if Bianca VS Bayley for the title happens at Clash at the Castle.

We got a great promo from Rollins and the Profits, and then an awesome match out of Rollins VS Ford to show everyone that Ford is ready to go solo. Dawkins did defend Ford, but who knows how this settles out. Edge delivered his promo perfectly but I’m a little surprised he just reset to Rated R Superstar. I was expecting a hybrid of all his personas, but I guess it was just easier for everyone if he was the previous iteration. And while he calls out Judgement Day, clearly Judgement Day still wants after Mysterios. We got an awesome tag title match out of Usos VS Mysterios, but of course Usos win. Mysterios then get mugged by Judgement Day, Edge tries to help but Dom takes the worst hit. I might have called it at SummerSlam: Dom goes down, Rey & Edge reunite!

My Score: 8.9/10

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.

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.

Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

Rocky climbs but The Kingdom is lurking again. The ref tells them to back off, but Roddy ROCKS Rocky first! Roddy has Rocky up top but Rocky DECKS Roddy! Rocky adjusts, Roddy stands, METE- STRONG KNEE!! Cover, Roddy wins!

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!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

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

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

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 flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

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

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

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

OFFICIAL RESULTS

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

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

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

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

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

The bell rings and the fans rally up.

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

Shibata escapes but Lee stalks him to ropes. Lee drags Shibata up but Shibata CHOPS! Lee comes back but Shibata ROCKS him! Lee comes back again, ROCKS Shibata, and Shibata falls over! 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! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

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

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

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

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

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

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around.

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!

Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

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

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine.

Claudio gets a chair and he runs off the DCF, but the damage has been done! Will the American Dragon be able to recover in time for Dynasty?


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
