WWE honors the memory of Queen Elizabeth II.


The Usos head to the ring, with Sami Zayn!

The Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions and the Honorary Uce are here, all in a great mood after Clash at the Castle saw The Bloodline stay on top of the WWE. Sami gets them all mics, and Sami shouts out Seattle. “The Bloodline is in! Your! City! Throw those ones up! Every single one of you, throw those ones up right now! That’s what I’m talking about. I feel it. You feeling it, Uce?” Jimmy’s feeling it! He and Sami do the handshake, and then Sami hesitates around Jey. There is business to talk about, though. Sami says growing up as a young Honorary Uce… Jey smiles, that was kinda funny. But chill, Jey’s got this.

“To all the haters and all the doubters, your Tribal Chief is still Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.” Fans are torn about that, but Jey says at Clash at the Castle, Roman beat Drew McIntyre on his home turf! Jimmy adds, “Road game!” Little does Drew know just how deep The Bloodline runs. Sami says that’s right, dawg! Jey frowns. But Seattle, get up on your feet, put your ones to the sky, and help them welcome the newest member of The Bloodline, the Street Champion, the Usos’ younger brother, SOLO SIKOA!! Solo makes his way to the ring, knee still in a brace from his injury in NXT, but now a full part of the SmackDown roster.

Solo high-fives his brothers, but Sami wants a hug. Solo says no to that. But Solo gets a mic while fans cheer and jeer. “You come for my family, and I come for you. You create problems, and I finish them. Solo Sikoa is here to stay! And the Bloodline just got bigger and stronger.” Jey says they all the twos, and #WeTheOnes! But here comes Drew McIntyre! He wants payback for the Sikoa screw job in Cardiff! The Usos and Sami get out to give Solo space, but McIntyre has a chair! McIntyre JAMS Solo, but Sami takes the SMACK! The Usos distract McIntyre so Sami and Solo can get out of the ring, and the Bloodline regroups at the ramp!

Fans fire up for the Scottish Warrior, and he calls out Solo for a match TONIGHT! Solo says if McIntyre wants it, then fine! Solo kicks McIntyre’s ass tonight! But will Solo be the one to #KneeltotheSteel?


Aliyah & Raquel Rodriguez VS Toxic Attraction!

The Bougie & The Badass may be preparing for a title defense against the team they beat in the tournament finals, but they’ll take on a team that never actually lost their shot! Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are back from NXT, will they spice things up in this second chance?

The teams sort out and Jacy starts against Big Mami Cool. Fans rally but Jacy kicks low. Jacy headlocks, Raquel powers out and swings, but Jacy dodges to mule kick!

Aliyah turns around to KNEE Jacy! Jacy keeps Aliyah from Raquel by pulling hair! Jacy bumps Aliyah off buckles, tags Gigi in, and Gigi whips Jacy in, but Aliyah dodges!

Raquel drags Gigi up, whips her to ropes, but Gigi BOOTS back! Jacy tags, Toxic Attraction kick, but Aliyah SPEARS Gigi! Raquel suplexes and TOSSES Jacy, to then reel her back in! TEXANA BOMB!! Cover, Raquel & Aliyah win!

The champions have momentum now going into their title defense! Will the Bougie & Badass be able to stop Kai & Sky from taking control?


SmackDown Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 5 Way Elimination Match: Ronda Rousey VS Natalya VS Sonya Deville VS Xia Li VS Lacey Evans!

The Baddest Woman on the Planet is back in business! But will she break the Queen of Harts, the Gladiator Gal, the Eliminator and the Model Soldier to get back to Liv Morgan? Or will her growing ego weigh her down in this match?

Liv Morgan is up in the VIP skybox having a drink and watching the show. The bell rings and Ronda finds herself surrounded. Sonya jumps on but Ronda throws her off and gets the arm! Lacy runs in but Ronda BOOTS her down! Natty & Xia mug Ronda together while Sonya slips away. Natty & Xia then throw Ronda out, and Xia rolls Natty up, with feet on the ropes! TWO, and Natty hits a DISCUS on Xia! Natty covers Xia, TWO! Natty has the legs and steps in, but Lacy gets in to use a WOMAN’S RIGHT! Cover, but Sonya KNEES Lacey apart!

That just leaves Sonya and Ronda! They stare down and fans fire up. Liv is getting into this match now as the two circle. Sonya puts her hair up, time to square up! The hands fly but Sonya guards. Sonya shoots in to get a leg but Ronda slips around to get a top mount! Ronda rains down forearms, but Sonya kicks free with a leg. Ronda just gets that leg and rolls through into the fireman’s carry! PIPER’S P- NO, Sonya slips into the COBRA CLUTCH! Ronda BACKAPCK ESNTONS, but Sonya holds on! Ronda rolls out of the ring and RAMS Sonya into barriers! Both women are down and fans fire up! And Liv approves.

Ronda puts Sonya in, fireman’s carries again, PIPER’S PIT! But Ronda doesn’t cover, she asks Seattle if they want a souvenir. YES! So she puts on the ANKLE LOCK!! GRAPEVINE!! Sonya taps, Ronda wins!

Winner: Ronda Rousey, by submission (NEW #1 Contender to the SmackDown Women’s Champion)

Liv holds up the belt but Ronda says it’s coming back home with her! Will Ronda be able to undo the controversy at SummerSlam? Or will Liv find a way to go 3-0 against The Baddest Woman on the Planet?


The Usos talk with Solo backstage.

The Street Champion’s ready. Tonight’s his big shot. They know this is what he’s been waiting on. Then Sami walks over. Sami and Solo stare down, and Solo says Roman Reigns was right. Solo appreciates the help from Sami. Well, y’know, Roman knows what he’s talking about. Jey grumbles, “Man, please.” Uh, please what? What’s going on? Jimmy says c’mon, tonight isn’t about this, it’s about Solo. They’re making a statement for The Bloodline! YEET. Right, right. Sami wants everyone to know that anything Solo needs, they are all looking out for him. Jey says Solo knows. Sami says he knows Solo knows. He’s just saying.

Jey says McIntyre called Solo out, he has to do it on his own. Solo agrees, he has to do this solo. But if he were to ask for help, he’d ask Sami. Sami goes for a handshake but Jey slaps that down. Change of plans, Uce. They’re all going out there tonight. Well okay, then! Let’s go! The Bloodline is fired up, but is it for the wrong reasons?


Ronda runs across Shayna Baszler backstage.

“Check you out, huh?” Great match, Ronda looks unstoppable. Now, she knows Ronda doesn’t need it, but good luck against Liv. Ronda appreciates Shayna putting on a brave face, but she can tell Shayna’s upset after losing to Liv. But y’know what’s better than winning? Revenge. Let Ronda know when Shayna’s ready to break bones and take over the show again. Does the Baddest Woman on the Planet still doubt the Queen of Spades’ resolve?


8 Man Tag: Hit Row & The Street Profits VS Los Lotharios & Maximum Male Models!

Top Dolla, Ashante THEE Adonis and B-Fab join forces with Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins to put some haters in their place. Will they humble Humberto Carrillo, Angel Garza, and Max Dupri’s top clients? Or will the Lethal Lovers and the MMM duo titillate the juices of everyone’s guilty pleasures?

The teams sort out and Adonis starts against Mansôör. They circle, Mansoor kicks but Adonis blocks to flip him on his face! Adonis then bumps Mansoor off the buckles, RAMS into him, and Dawkins tags in. Adonis whips Dawkins for the CYCLONE SPLASH and Top Dolla tags in. Dolla taunts Los Lotharios, then runs in to SPLASH Mansoor! Tag to Ford and they feed Mansoor to the LARIAT! Fans fire up and then everyone rushes the “handsome” corner! They all get away and the fans fire up with the #ProfHits as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Mansoor wrangles Adonis down to the mat with a chinlock. Adonis reaches around, fans rally up, but Mansoor pulls back on the hold. Adonis fights up but Mansoor throws him down!

Time to get that… money money money money! Will Hit Row & Street Profits keep things going to get at those Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships?


The Alpha Academy is here!

Chad Gable & Otis are visiting from Raw, and Chad says it’s Seattle’s lucky night! The Alpha Academy is back on SmackDown, right where The Alpha Academy was born! And Gable can tell from that “warm response,” they missed them dearly. So from his heart, he says A THANK YEW~! C’mon, Seattle, they haven’t been gone that long, he shouldn’t need to remind them. When you’re in the presence of the Academy, Gable needs you to do one thing. SHOOOOSH! Shoosh, please. But the reason they’re here tonight is to ruin Braun Strowman’s return to SmackDown, the same way he ruined the Academy’s contenders status by sticking his big head in their match.

Gable & Otis go to the ring, and Gable says that match was all but won by The Academy before Braun jumped them from behind. Because trust Gable, if Otis saw Braun coming, Otis would’ve decimated Braun and left him laying! Look at that face! And that’s because Otis, much like Gable, is a superior athlete. Oh, right, Seattle doesn’t know anything about superior athletes. Seattle couldn’t even hold on to their own pro basketball team. Fans boo really hard now, but Gable says shoosh. That only riles the fans up more, so Gable says shoosh, please. Fans chant, “You Suck!” at The Academy, but that’s what Gable thought! They’re all idiots!

But Gable will show off how his genius turned Otis into the monster he is! But speaking of, here comes BRAUN!! The Monster Among Men storms his way down to the ring, and Otis is staring him down! Braun roars, Otis runs in, and Braun ROCKS him! Gable gets out of the ring and Braun CLUBS away on Otis! But then Gable attacks Braun from behind! Uh oh… Braun turns around to glare at Gable, and grabs him by the shirt to throw him down! Gable gets up but Braun BOOTS him! Otis fires off on Braun! Otis runs corner to corner, and he SPLASHES Braun! Gable gets up, he tells Otis to keep going, but Braun runs Otis over!

Braun LARIATS Gable! Braun drags Gable up to POWERBOMB him down! Otis stands and Braun reels him in!? Seattle is thunderous as Braun hits a POWERBOMB on Otis!! Superior athlete? Maybe. Superior monster? NOPE! Will Braun steamroll his way back to the top of the mountain now that he’s back?


Backstage interview with Drew McIntyre.

Kayla Braxton says he ultimately fell short at Clash at the Castle. But how satisfying will it be, then, to get his revenge on Solo Sikoa here tonight? McIntyre says Clash should’ve been the biggest moment of his life. 21 years of giving everything to this industry. All the sacrifices led him to that moment. He should be standing here right now as Universal Champion. But he’s not, and for one reason: Solo Sikoa. McIntyre glares right into the camera as he tells Solo, “I’m sure your Head of the Table is very happy with you. But actions have consequences. And I promise you tonight, you are not gonna like the consequences of your actions.” Will the Scottish Warrior slay the Street Champion in the main event?


Drew McIntyre VS Solo Sikoa w/ The Bloodline!

No more talk, it’s time to fight! Will McIntyre make things right from the Sikoa screw job in Cardiff? Or will Solo and his brothers be the ones that screw him over again?

The bell rings and McIntyre fires off on Solo! He stomps Solo, CHOPS Solo, ROCKS Solo, and repeat! The ref has McIntyre back off and Solo sucker punches McIntyre! Solo fires off hands, but the ref backs him off now. McIntyre ROCKS Solo back, CHOPS him again, then ROCKS him with more hands. Solo throat chops! Solo whips, McIntyre reverses but Solo KICKS him back! McIntyre CLOBBERS Solo! McIntyre puts Solo in a corner, whips him corner to corner, then runs in, but into an elbow! Solo storms up, into a kick and FUTURE SHOCK! McIntyre fires up and so does Seattle! McIntyre aims from the corner, counts it down, but the Usos get Solo out!

Fans boo as the Usos make sure the young Uce is safe, at least for now. McIntyre glares at them all as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Solo has a claw digging into McIntyre’s shoulder. Fans fire up as McIntyre endures and fights to his feet. McIntyre kicks low, CHOSP him, and whips him, only for Solo to reverse! McIntyre hits buckles, and Solo hits a SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! The Bloodline cheers Solo on and he stomps away on McIntyre. Solo rains down fists then dares McIntyre to get up. McIntyre gets to ropes but Solo CHOKES him! The ref counts, Solo lets off, Jey gets a cheap shot in! Sami talks trash but the ref tells him to back off. Solo raises the finger, #WeTheOnes. Solo stalks McIntyre to a corner and throws down hands!

The ref counts, Solo lets off, but McIntyre CHOPS him! And CHOPS again! Solo knees low, then hits a BELLY2BELLY! Cover, TWO! McIntyre crawls to a corner and Solo stands. Solo goes to the far side and runs corner to corner, HIP ATTACK! McIntyre sputters but he drags himself up. Solo talks trash while fans are torn. “Get your ass up! You don’t belong here!” Solo pie faces McIntyre but that angers McIntyre. Solo whips McIntyre corner to corner but McIntyre CLOBBERS him on the return! And again! McIntyre whips and ELBOWS Solo down! Solo staggers, McIntyre clinches him to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

McIntyre dodges Solo’s haymaker to hit a NECKBREAKER! And a kip up! Seattle is thunderous but Jey distracts McIntyre. McIntyre DECKS Jey, scares off Jimmy, but Solo rolls him up! TWO, and McIntyre TOSSES Solo out! Jimmy gets up but McIntyre DECKS him, too! Fans fire up as McIntyre calls his shot. McIntyre builds speed, but Sami trips McIntyre up! The ref is busy with the Usos, but McIntyre TOSSES Sami into the ring! Fans fire up and McIntyre stalks Sami! The countdown is back, THREE! TWO! ONE! SUPERKICK from Solo!! Cover, TWO!! McIntyre survives and the Bloodline can’t believe it!

The Usos coach their brother up, he drags McIntyre up and throws hands,. McIntyre throws hands back, they go back and forth with heavy haymakers! GLASGOW KISS! But Solo dodges and the Usos dump McIntyre out while Sami distracts the ref! The Usos mug McIntyre at the ramp! But here comes the Profits! Ford & Dawkins take the Usos down but Sami goes after them! They make things 3v1 against Dawkins but Ford is up top! SUPER CROSSBODY!! Direct hit on the Usos and Honorary Uce and McIntyre gets in the ring. Solo fireman’s carries but McIntyre slips off! Shove and dodge to the CLAYMORE!! Solo is sent outta the ring!


Winner: Drew McIntyre, by disqualification

The Scottish Warrior fades out as Kross shouts, “TICK TOCK!” Scarlett taunts McIntyre as Mr. Doomsday chokes the life out of McIntyre! Or not?! McIntyre stands up with Kross on his back, but then Kross wrenches back on the hold! McIntyre falls back, and his eyes are flickering! McIntyre gets a third wind?! McIntyre tries to rise again, but Kross has a wild look in his eyes as he just squeezes tight! Even the cameras fade out as McIntyre is losing consciousness! Can nothing stop the apocalypse?

My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown to follow that great Clash at the Castle event. Opening with the Six Man Tag was a great choice, the Brawling Brutes and Imperium got that crowd fired up. I was a little worried when Ludwig landed out of Ridge’s throw as he landed on his own knee, but he shook it off pretty easily. Imperium winning makes sense, it keeps their dominance from back in their NXT and NXT UK days going, and it escalates things in the feud with the Brutes. Sheamus might get a rematch for Extreme Rules, and that would be awesome. As hard as they went in a standard match at Clash, imagine how much harder another round would be.

Chad Gable calling out Braun of course meant Braun was going to destroy him and Otis, but how awesome was that powerbomb to Otis? But I would think in kayfabe, this was a detour from what Braun really wanted to do here on SmackDown. Now whether that’s call out Roman Reigns or call out the tag team champions has yet to be seen. I still bet this is a swerve waiting to happen where Braun wants his rematch for him and “Nicolas” from years ago. Great stuff out of the 8 Man Tag, from the character stuff of Los Lotharios still flirting with Maxxine to the actual action. The Faces win to keep Hit Row hot, and it also gives Profits momentum going into the second try on the tag title contender’s match.

Great stuff out of Sami and The Bloodline. Their interactions are still hilarious with Jey being so blatantly upset about Sami being around, and now with Solo as the tiebreaker between the sons Rikishi, it’s even better that Jey is in a bad mood. McIntyre VS Solo, even with the overbooking, was good stuff. But I should’ve figured Kross would attack McIntyre to divert him from going back after Roman. I also like that they chose to make everything black ‘n’ white when Kross attacked, like he’s the one sapping the color away from the world. McIntyre VS Kross should/will probably be the Extreme Rules match at Extreme Rules, and that will be awesome stuff.

The women’s tag match was very good, especially with the surprise return of Toxic Attraction. But of course the champions win, they need momentum for the title defense on Monday. That match can go either way as it’s for the larger story of Damage Control wanting to be on top of Raw. As for Toxic Attraction, I hope this feeds into their NXT story where it seems Gigi & Jacy are breaking away from Mandy Rose. And then there was that Fatal 5 Way. For one, the elimination element caught me by surprised. But it really only served to feed Ronda’s power levels as she eliminated the majority of the others. Ugh.

Then Ronda snaps at Shayna when Shayna is trying to be a good friend! I hope Shayna shows her “killer instinct” by screwing Ronda over. Then those two can feud because Shayna can be Pearce’s proxy for that story. Now, Ronda will certainly try to be the Face but I feel like they could use “her ego” to turn her Heel instead of into “Stone Cold” Ronda. Because as far as I’m concerned, “Stone Cold” Ronda isn’t working.

My Score: 8.5/10

Another main event and another big win for The Rogue Luchador! The Heel Master almost did this clean and almost won because of it, will he realize where he’s going wrong?

Every time I face him, I level up. This was a league match, but that was the level of a final. I’ll keep going, and I promise to make you guys glad you bought a ticket.” The fans also cheer that. Despe says that this is the Osaka-Jo Hall main event we’re talking about! He keeps saying he doesn’t care, but now it’s right in front of him! It’d be a big disappointment if he doesn’t make it, right? There’ll be a lot of guys in both blocks “gutted” they won’t make it. “But for me, I’ll be taking it.”

The fans cheer as The Rogue Luchador is ready to be the Best of the Super Juniors! Just three more rounds to go, will he make it?


Here are the NEW A Block standings!

El Desperado: 4-2, 8 points
Blake Christian: 4-2, 8 points
Clark Connors: 4-2, 8 points
Titan: 4-2, 8 points
Kevin Knight: 3-3, 6 points
HAYATA: 3-3, 6 points
Yoshinobu Kanemaru: 2-4, 4 points
BUSHI: 2-4, 4 points
TJP: 2-4, 4 points
Kosei Fujita: 2-4, 4 points

My Thoughts:

A great round for A Block here, and they played up the drama right away with TJP getting that win over Fujita. I can’t really say TJP makes that big comeback to get a spot in the semifinals, because as soon as someone who already beat him gets 5+ wins, they cross him off mathematically. I really like that we’ve got four 4-2 records, those guys are all going strong. Connors has that win over Titan, though, so Titan only gets ahead if Connors falls off in the final three rounds. Blake meanwhile is starting to cool off, and with his loss to Desperado, Blake will need Connors to take Desperado out tomorrow to help him get back up.

And word came in from NJPW today that sadly, Francesco Akira’s knee injury will NOT be okay in time for the next round, or for any of the rounds so he must now forfeit points. As I pointed out last time, the ones who benefit are Hiromu, Douki, Eagles & Sho. Sho gets to six points, the others are at 8 with Kushida, essentially getting B Block to the same situation as A Block. Kushida already beat Hiromu and Sho, so he’d have to fall off pretty bad for either of them to get his spot in the semifinals. Douki is going to face Sho tomorrow, and is still to face Kushida, so Douki could take that spot for himself while taking out Hiromu in the process.

My Score: 9/10
