Bron Breakker VS Javier Bernal!

The NXT Champion is headed into another Triple Threat against incredible competition on JD McDonagh and Ilja Dragunov. Halloween Havoc will be a war, will this simply be a tune-up? Or will Big Body Javi prove he’s more than just a mouth?

Wait, speaking of that Triple Threat, The Irish Ace surprises us all by coming out to join Vic Joseph and Booker T on commentary. JD says it’s a deck: JD’s the Ace, Booker’s a King, and Vic’s a joker. Anyway, the bell rings and Javi smirks as he says he’s a future champion, He swings, but into Bron’s waistlock and SLAM! And then another SLAM! And another SLAM! Javi scrambles away to a corner and fans bark for Bron. Bron dares Javi to do something, and Javi comes out to circle with him. They tie up, Bron wrenches, wristlocks, but Javi rolls. Bron wrangles Javi down to the mat and has a double wristlock.

Javi fights up, wrenches and wristlocks back, but Bron cartwheels through to fireman’s carry takeover! Bron has the arm again, but Javi flails and moves around. Bron whips, Javi reverses but Bron ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Javi! Fans fire up and bark while Javi gets to a corner. Bron whips Javi corner to corner, then clinches for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

The straps come down, fans bark it up, and Bron runs in. Javi BOOTS Bron, goes up top, but Bron catches him for a TOSS! Javi flounders, Bron choke grips him and trophy lifts him! Bron stares JD down before the BREAKKER SLAM! Cover, Bron wins!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall

JD may not like it, but Bron is rolling towards their title match! And Javi may not like it, but he’s nowhere near championship material yet. Wait, JD gets in the ring now and he stares Bron down. Fans chant for “DRAGUNOV! DRAGUNOV!” and here he comes! The Czar makes his presence known and fans fire up! Dragunov goes into the ring to join Bron and JD in a very similar stare down to a couple weeks ago. JD HEADBUTTS Dragunov and fires of on Bron! JD stomps away, but Bron throws hands! JD knees low, but he moves, TORPEDO MOSCOW hits Bron! JD runs away but he got the better of both opponents.

Dragunov looks down at Bron, and he doesn’t regret what just happened. But he does pick up the belt to establish that he’s ready to take this title! Will UNBESIEGBAR reign again?

 

Alba Fyre speaks.

“Toxic Attraction, I was serious when I said I was more of a visual woman. That’s why I took Mandy Rose on our little joyride. And when it was over, I had a woman’s title match at Halloween Havoc. In less than two weeks, I scorch the empire that Mandy and her little friends built. I know Gigi & Jacy seek revenge, but as a fire keeper, I never back down. Because where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” The heat is rising, will Fyre burn Jacy before lighting it up with Mandy Rose at Halloween Havoc?

 

Best 2 out of 3 Series, Round 3: Nathan Frazer VS Axiom!

Match of the year, anyone? That was an amazing finale to their trilogy, and in the end, the British Prodigy defies expectations and takes the win! But best of all, both men still respect each other and shake hands. “That was Awesome!” but how much more amazing will Frazer make the ladder match now that he’s in it?

 

McKenzie Mitchell catches up with Dragunov.

Before he leaves for the night, she wants to ask if that headbutt was intended for Bron. Dragunov says there are three rules on the battlefield. Love, war and- Challenges! Grayson Waller knew Dragunov was a fan! Say it like you mean it! But no one cares about feelings. Dragunov was looking for an edge going into his match at Halloween Havoc, but Waller doesn’t need one! Waller’s taking on Apollo Crews and- Why is Waller wearing his grandma’s sunglasses?! Waller says first off, these aren’t! Second, Crews tried to blind Waller and his eyes are still sensitive. Why’s Dragunov changing the subject? Why’s Dragunov leaving so soon for someone who did something by “accident?”

Oh, so Waller wants Dragunov to stay? Uh, no- Then Dragunov will stay! Great idea! See you later, Waller. No, he didn’t mean it like that! McKenzie, this is YOUR fault! Will the 21st Century Success Story have more than just sensitive eyes after facing The Czar?

 

Valentina Feroz speaks with Sanga backstage.

She is nervous about tonight and her return to singles action. Can Sanga be in her corner tonight? Sanga say she will! Alright! And then in walks Indi Hartwell. Sanga’s gonna be in Feroz’s corner? Well, this may be Feroz’s jungle, but that is still Indi’s ring. See you out there. #IndiWrestling is confident while Feroz has butterflies, but will Sanga’s presence help Feroz overcome her fears?

 

Apollo Crews speaks.

“Your view of the world is shaped by how you allow yourself to experience it. You create a point of view and see everyone and everything through this lens. Most people live their entire lives with a force perspective, only able to see things in an uncomplicated way. But changing one detail can greatly alter how you visualize everything around you, and now you see things you never saw coming. Turning that lens on yourself can turn it into something you’re not going to like. I waited two long months for the day to come. And Halloween Havoc, let’s see what happens.” Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal, all the possibilities, and Chucky?

Apollo tells Waller, “I’m gonna force my perspective onto you on my way to my ultimate goal. At Halloween Havoc, I leave you in the dark.” Is Apollo going to let fate decide what happens between him and Waller?

 

Valentina Feroz w/ Sanga VS Indi Hartwell!

Yulisa Leon is out with injury but she wants her tag partner to shine on her own. Feroz is still rough around the edges, but will she be a diamond in the rough? Or will #IndiWrestling finally have that impressive win she needs to get up in the women’s division?

The bell rings, the two tie up, and Indi powers Feroz to ropes. The ref counts, Indi lets off to then shove Feroz out! Feroz rushes back in but into a knee! Indi scoops and SLAMS Feroz, then scoops and SLAMS her again! Cover, ONE, but Indi keeps on Feroz with a chinlock. Feroz endures, but here comes Veer! Speaking of tag partners, Sanga and Veer were more or less reunited last week. Sanga walks over to Veer and Veer whispers something to him. Veer then turns to leave, and Sanga goes with him? What about his promise to Feroz? Feroz fights up with the fans rallying for her, and she throws body shots.

Indi knees low, then gut wrenches Ferzo to a Canadian Rack! Indi thrsahes Feroz around, but Feroz fights free! Fans rally, Feroz elbows her away! Feroz goes up, and hits a FLYING ARMBAR! Indi resists, turns and powers up to deadlift Feroz! ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP! Feroz writhes and Indi drags her around. But Feroz throws Indi down into an ARMBAR! Indi fights and crawls to the ROPEBREAK! Feroz lets off at 4, then runs in to KNEE Indi down! Cover, TWO! Indi hangs tough and both she and Feroz grab at each other. Feroz JAWBREAKKERS, but now she realizes Sanga is gone!

Feroz still THROWS Indi, and runs to METEORA! Then SHOTGUN! Cover, TWO! Feroz grits her teeth, runs in but is put on the apron. Indi DECKS Feroz, then climbs up to drag Feroz up. Indi deadlift SUPERPLEXES Feroz in! Cover, Indi wins!

Winner: Indi Hartwell, by pinfall

That was impressive! But then Pretty Deadly shows up in the perch? They’re not wearing shirts, but Kit Wilson has a beer drinking hat and Elton Prince has a big foam cowboy hat. Are they tailgating up there? Kit congratulates Indi on her win. “Or as Americans say, ‘Go sports!'” Elton says Indi is very “I-I-I-Impressive.” But Pretty Deadly are “F-F-F-Fantastic.” Fans boo the NXT Tag Team Championships but they tell the party people that they just wanna sit back and relax while watching three teams “beat the crap out of each other, all for the privilege to take on Pretty Deadly for these tag team championships.” Who do they think will win?

Elton wants to see “Scooby Doo and the dandy” win. But they definitely don’t like The Dyad. Briggs & Jensen, ROLL TIDE~! Edris & Malik? *Airhorn noises* Well either way, they’ll have a swig o’ beer! The sausages are on the grill, warming up for the two tastiest snacks in NXT. Tuck in, cowboy, it’s time to see these teams annihilate each other. #YESBOY! 2, 4, 6, 8, who’s the team they think is great? Prettyyyyy~ DEADLY~! Goooooooo PD~!

 

Backstage interview with Cora Jade.

McKenzie asks her about next week’s Pick Your Poison between her and former friend, Roxanne Perez. Has Cora decided on who she’s sending after Roxie? She has the WHOLE WWE to pick from! She’s contacted some people, but the hard part is narrowing it down. Must be hard for Roxie to find someone since no one ever really liked her. Cora can’t imagine what it must feel like to be ghosted by everyone on Raw and SmackDown. Yikes. Actually, McKenzie heard Roxie’s DMs are blowing up and multiple superstars are interested. What? No no no! Not possible! Roxie doesn’t have friends! She must be lying.

Actually, Roxie is going to SmackDown this Friday. What?! Who is she talking to?! Cora says she has some calls to make. Does McKenzie have Ronda’s number? No, sorry. Cora grumbles but then McKenzie quietly admits she does have Ronda’s number. But will Cora just have to pick the next best choice?

 

NXT Tag Team Championship #1 Contenders Triple Threat: Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen VS Edris Enofe & Malik Blade VS The Dyad!

Well, as Kit & Elton said, one team out of this field will move on to face the champions for the titles! Will the good ol’ boys get another chance at the titles they lost back at Worlds Collide?

NXT returns and Jagger stmops Jensen then stomps Edris, and repeat. Pretty Deadly cheer that on, but Jagger tags Rip. The Dyad stomps both opponents now! Rip CLUBS Edris, KNEES Jensen, then tags Jagger back in. They mug Edris, haul him up to the to rope, and they both climb up. The Dyad mugs Edris, stands him up, but Jensen joins in!

Fans are thunderous as Grimes helps the rightful winners take this one! Like the song says, Edris & Malik are far from rookies, but are they just one match away from becoming champions?

 

Backstage interview with Toxic Attraction.

They don’t care about #1 contenders to tag titles, since Gigi & Jacy should be #1 contenders to the Women’s Tag Team Championships. But “Batgirl” had to go and jump them! Tonight, she gets payback, but worse. Toxic Attraction doesn’t fear the flames. Jacy is gonna take care of Alba Fyre. When you mess with their gold, they will walk through fire to get revenge. Jacy vows to send Fyre back to her relatives in Middle Earth as a hot mess. And if Fyre wants to surprise them again, maybe they’ll have a surprise waiting for her in return. Jacy & Gigi head out, but will they have to eat those words very soon?

 

Kiana James is working on something.

That is not what she told them. No, what? Did you tell them Kiana was asking? Well then tell them this is from THE Kiana James! She’s looking at the plans now! The land that Chase U is located on is far more valuable than the college itself. She thanks her assistant, Gina, and asks if they have hard copies. Yes. Okay, good. Kiana tells her contact to contact her analytics team to get on this. Actually, she’ll be in the ring with Thea Hail tonight. It’ll make the deal that much more enjoyable. But remember: this is just one of many acquisitions. If they get this right, they’ll do much more business in the future. Kiana promises Gina this is going to be huge. But what about Chase U?!

 

Alba Fyre VS Jacy Jayne w/ Toxic Attraction!

NXT returns and Toxic Attraction make their entrance. The bell rings and Jacy talks trash. She runs in but Fyre dodges to then hook Jacy up!

The Fire Keeper is red hot going into the title match! She high-fives fans, but then someone grabs her! It’s SONYA DEVILLE! She YANKS Fyre into the railing! Mandy Rose’s best frenemy is back in NXT! Guess this is the surprise Toxic Attraction meant! Sonya RAMS Fyre into barriers, fans are fired up, and Sonya stands Fyre up to get in her face. Sonya fires off body shots, Gigi & Jacy join in! They mug Fyre while the ref reprimands! They bring Fyre to the steel steps, Sonya BOOTS Fyre down! Sonya then clears off the desk so that she and Toxic Attraction can SHIELD BOMB Fyre through the desk!!

Fans are losing their minds but it seems the Toxic Goddess made a deal with the Deville! Will Fyre be in any shape to fight Mandy Rose now? Or is this just fuel for the fire before Halloween Havoc?

 

The Schism is furious!

What was Grimes doing going after them!? Jagger DECKS the cameraman! Gacy tells Grimes, “We tried to bring you into our world, but now we must eliminate you from it! I tried so hard to save you from your pathetic existence. Now, you must face the full force of Schism three on one because you and I both know you have no one to turn to. And you will fight. You will fight just like Cameron Grimes can. You will use every ounce of oxygen you have in your body. That is, until you take your last gasp.” The Schism’s wrath is coming for Grimes, but will Grimes find a way to survive?

 

Zoey Stark & Nikkita Lyons speak.

Being #1 contenders sounds great, but Stark asks Lyons if she knows what sounds better. No, what? “Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark, the NEW NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions!” Lyons understands Kayden & Katana are best friends, they’ve been a team forever. That’s great. But Lyons & Stark compliment each other. Lyons is a take it or leave it type while Stark is more reserved. Stark makes it sound like her focus and determination is a bad thing. It’s not! Lyons was at the 2021 Las Vegas tryouts when HHH pointed Zoey Stark out to her. Stark, of course, was at the previous Vegas tryouts and impressed NXT. Lyons acknowledged Stark had been a big help in her getting going here.

Lyons says Stark’s drive is incredible. What Stark can do in the ring is amazing. Stark appreciates that, but Lyons’ development is so fast and great, it’s also awesome. They’re both starting to loosen up just a bit here, but one thing for sure is no matter the time, no matter the date, when they get that title match, they’re becoming champions! They even got a secret handshake down! Will these fast friends be fast champions together?

 

Quincy Elliot, Hank Walker and the security guards watch backstage.

They’re all impressed by Lyons & Stark. They’re firing on all cylinders! And now they’re #1 contenders! Hank says that was last week, but next week, when Quincy takes on Xyon Quinn, Hank’s got his back. Quincy tells “Hanky” he appreciates that. And boys, you all be good. Quincy heads out, and Hank returns that sportsman butt smack. Oh, Hanky! Now that’s chemistry. The guards suggest a team up, will we see the Super Diva and the Every Man become contenders in their own right?

 

Wes Lee VS Channing Lorenzo!

The Must-See Kid is in action ahead of the North American Championship Ladder Match, looking to prove to Stacks that what happened to Tony D’Angelo wasn’t his fault. But will Stacks be made to believe that? Or will Stacks make sure Wes has his own “accident?”

NXT returns as Stacks makes his entrance. The footage replays of Tony’s injury and while Wes defends his innocence, Stacks is just fired up. The bell rings, Stacks rushes in, but Wes dodges the chop block. Wes argues with Stacks, hen Stacks shoots in to trip Wes up! Wes kicks him away but Stacks comes back, into a RANA! Wes wants Stacks to chill out, but Stacks runs in again. Wes dodges, runs and RANAS again! Then DROPKICKS! Stacks flounders to a corner and WEs tells him to slow down. Stacks doesn’t care, he run sin, into a Oklahoma Roll! TWO, and Wes runs in, but he blocks the drop toehold!

Stacks RAMS Wes into the corner, lets off and ROCKS Wes! Stacks gets a leg to DRAGON SCREW it into ropes! Stacks then grabs at Wes but Wes kicks him away. Stacks CHOP BLOCKS Wes down! Fans boo but Stacks drags Wes into a toehold. Stacks punches away on the leg but Wes kicks free. Wes goes to a corner, Stacks drags Wes up, and Stacks goes after the leg for a SHIN BREAKER! Fans boo as Stacks talks trash. Stacks drags Wes around to step through and tie up the leg in a DEATHLOCK! Fans rally for Wes as he endures, but Stacks thrashes the hold! Wes fights, pries at the hold, and he DECKS Stacks!

The hold is undone and both men stand. Stacks throws hands but Wes throws counter punches! And a BIG back elbow! Wes bobs ‘n’ weaves, fires off hands, and he has Stacks wobbling into a corner! Wes lets off to whip corner to corner. Wes runs in to UPPERCUT! Fans fire up and Wes shakes out his leg. Wes runs in but the leg gives out! Stacks storms up to scoop to a torture rack! SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Wes is still in this and Stacks is furious! Fans fire up but Stacks climbs up. Wes anchors Stacks and THROWS him down! Wes goes up top, aims and SKY TWISTERS! Cover, Wes wins!

Winner: Wes Lee, by pinfall

A gritty win for the high-flyer, and now he is headed for- TRICK WILLIAMS ATTACKS! Trick and Wes throw hands, there’s still beef here! Carmelo Hayes adds on! Melo & Trick mug Wes and fans boo! But here comes ORO! Oro DECKS Trick, and clinches Melo for an EXPLODER! Oro TOSSES Trick and fans fire up! Oro aims at Melo from a corner, but Trick drags Melo out of the ring! Oro Mensah dares them to come back, but Wes FLIES onto Melo & Trick to take them out! Fans fire up as Wes and Oro take out a common enemy, but Halloween Havoc will be every man for himself. Who climbs up to take the title down?

 

Sonya Deville and Toxic Attraction talk in the lounge.

They all feel great after beating Fyre down, but in walks McKenzie. Jacy guesses that McKenzie’s about to ask why Sonya is here. Actually, yes, why is Sonya here? Sonya says she and Mandy have had their differences, but in the end, they’re still best friends. So if Gigi & Jacy are Mandy’s girls, they’re Sonya’s girls, too. Does that make sense? Now, who knows what Fyre is thinking with her burning, flaming bat or whatever, but maybe it burned some of her brain cells. Because you can’t just abduct the greatest NXT Women’s Champion ever and get away with it! You all get that, right? That’s why Sonya is here.

Now, McKenzie, while you’re here, Sonya wants to ask a favor. McKenzie should go wait outside medical for when Fyre exits, and tell her for them that next week, Sonya will be waiting in the ring for her. And if Fyre chooses to show up, she won’t make it to Halloween Havoc. Gigi excuses McKenzie and she leaves. Will Sonya get payback for Mandy and clear her Halloween Havoc card? Or will Fyre just burn another Toxic lackey?

 

Diamond Mine is at the hospital.

Julius & Brutus Creed wait, and Ivy Nile wheels Roderick Strong in. Roddy’s glad to see them. He’s almost ready to get out of here. Julius admits, it’s tough seeing him like this. Ivy notes Roddy looks better than last week. Roddy says it’s one day at time. But what’s up, Big Brut? Why so down? Brutus says Damon’s gonna pay for what he did. At Halloween Havoc, Julius will put Damon in an ambulance! Hopefully there’ll be an extra bed here for him. Roddy is sure they’ll find the space. But he also wants to say… “I’m sorry. I’m the one that brought Damon in. I’m the one that asked you guys to trust me. And I might be the reason Diamond Mine-”

Julius says it’s okay, Roddy shouldn’t think like that. Julius will get them through this. Roddy says he would’ve been fighting by their side, but now he can’t. “But you guys can. At Halloween Havoc, Julius, I just need one thing.” Anything! “Win! Because it’s Diamond Mine Forever!” Will the Creeds make Roddy proud and take down the Golden Gopher?

 

Kiana James VS Thea Hail w/ Chase U!

We all know that the Professional Professional Wrestler is planning on a land grab scheme for the ages, but will the star pupil stump her? Or is tonight’s #TeachableMoment that you can’t fight big business?

The bell rings and Thea is fired up. But wait, Robert Stone barges into the ring? “Sorry to interrupt, Kiana, but I’ve got some business that I need to talk about!” Kiana respects that. Stone says he should be celebrating Von Wagner going to Halloween Havoc, but instead, the world is laughing at him! And they are laughing because of THEA! Aw boo hoo~! Robert says she had the audacity to slam him! Fans chant, “You Got Slammed!” Stone says it is not a good idea to put your hands on him! Now, he’ll ruin her night! But then he runs into a back drop! Fans fire up but Kiana is stalking Thea! Thea turns around and Kiana runs in to COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, Kiana wins!

Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall

Well, it seems the real lesson is to not take your eyes off the ball! Thea is frustrated with herself, but is this just phase one of Kiana’s hostile takeover?

 

Stacks grumbles backstage.

But then Tony D’Angelo walks in. Stacks asks him how he’s doing, but The Don says he’s doing better than Stacks. Tonight, Stacks lost to Wes. And a couple weeks ago, Tony told Stacks to get off the apron but Stacks wouldn’t listen. So what happens? Tony blows his PCL while Stacks is in pieces! But Stacks said it himself, “Actions have consequences.” Stacks feels those consequences next week in another match. Against Wes? No. Tony will see Stacks at the car. Wait, hold on. Stacks is down to fight anyone, but who’s he facing? Does Stacks remember that time in 8th grade when Stacks beat up Ralphie just for cutting him in line?

Yeah. That was a war. No one disrespects Stacks. Right. Well, it’ll be something like that. Against who? Tony tells Stacks that he loves him, but Stacks will know when the music hits. See you then. Stacks says that’s fine, but will it be a fight Stacks can’t win?

 

Robert Stone picks himself up backstage.

And yes, people are laughing at him. But then Von asks Stone what the hell! Stone just needs to calm down, they’ve got less than two weeks until Halloween Havoc, they need to start getting serious. Stone knows but- Von tells Stone to cut the BS and understand who is in that match with him. Stone needs to be locked in so that no one stops Von from grabbing the belt. Right, Stone is sorry. Old habits creep up, but it’s time for Von to be champion. That’s more like it! Will Suit Man Stone stop being the butt of jokes and help Wagner’s World become a reality?

 

Backstage interview with Cameron Grimes.

McKenzie asks Grimes about the Schism’s challenge. Does he plan on going it alone? Or does he have partners? Grimes tells McKenzie, “What a difference a week makes! I’d be lying if I didn’t say it felt so good to cost The Dyad that #1 contendership. But Joe’s right. There is no one in NXT that I trust.” So it will be 3v1? Oh no, Grimes may not trust anyone in NXT, but he doesn’t count ALL of the WWE. See you next week.

But wait! Cora cuts McKenzie off from throwing things back to ringside. Cora says if Roxie wants to go to SmackDown because she knows someone, then guess what! Rhea Ripley just texted back, and she wants Cora to go to Raw! Look, here on her phone! Really? Roxie can go to SmackDown, Cora’s going to Raw, so HAH! Now who might be lying? But it seems we’re all but set on that Pick Your Poison! Who from SmackDown is facing Cora? And who from Raw is facing Roxie?

 

Ilja Dragunov VS Grayson Waller!

Speaking of disrespect, The Czar doesn’t stand for that, either. The 21st Century Success Story insinuated the Torpedo Moscow to Bron wasn’t an accident, but will he be getting one on purpose? Or can the Grayson Waller Effect throw Dragunov off his game?

NXT returns as Waller makes his entrance. The bell rings, the two circle as fans rally up. They tie up, go around, fans actually duel as there are some Waller-bies tonight. Waller puts Dragunov on the ropes, lets off as the ref counts, but Dragunov avoids the sucker punch! Waller uses ropes as a defense when Dragunov shows punch! The fans taunt Waller as he bails out. Dragunov waits, Waller returns, and the two go again. Dragunov clinches to SLAM Waller, then he facelocks to keep Waller down. Waller fights up, Dragunov wrenches and then hits an arm-drag! Dragunov keeps on the armlock and he gets a cover, ONE!

Dragunov facelocks Waller again, wrenches again, and wristlocks hard. Waller rolls, handsprings and knees low to get free. Waller goes after Dragunov’s arm, but Dragunov endures. Waller WRINGS Dragunov out and goes for the legs, but Dragunov kicks him away. Waller comes back, into the BACKHAND! Dragunov SENTONS and fires up! Fans fire up with him and Dragunov runs at Waller in the corner for a KNEE! Dragunov pushes Waller down, flips him around, and he waistlocks. Waller fights as Dragunov lifts, “This is Wrestling!” Dragunov has the arms but Waller gets the ropes. The ref counts, Dragunov lets off, and Waller sucker punches!

Fans boo and the ref reprimands but Waller grins. Waller aims, runs in, and LEG LARIATS! Waller mocks Dragunov and Booker, and tells Booker to “SUCK IT”!? Waller’s asking for trouble now! Fans boo while NXT goes picture in picture.

Waller continues to taunt Booker and fakes doing a spinarooni to rain down forearms on Dragunov. Waller lets off to stalk Dragunov to a corner. Waller EuroUppers and Dragunov staggers to another corner. Dragunov CHOPS back, but Waller JABS Dragunov. Waller snap suplexes hard, then he taunts Dragunov with drop steps. Waller drops a knee on Dragunov, but Dragunov KICKS from below! Waller stomps and CLUBS Dragunov, whips him to ropes, but Dragunov ducks ‘n’ dodges, into another LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Waller is annoyed but he JAMS his knee into Dragunov’s back over and over. Waller drops an elbow, covers, ONE!!

Waller is upset with the ref but the count was fair. Waller stalks Dragunov to a corner, drags him up and snapmares him, to then clamp on a chinlock. Dragunov endures, fights up, and he throws elbows. Waller CLUBS Dragunov down, then digs his face into the mat before a knee drop! Waller scowls but he avoids the kicks. Waller toys with Dragunov as he kicks him around, then he drops on him for a cover. TWO, but Waller cravats and neck wrenches Dragunov. Dragunov endures, NXT returns to single picture, and fans rally up. Dragunov pries at the hold, fights up, and he throws body shots! Waller throws knees!

Waller reels Dragunov in to suplex. Dragunov fights to a cradle! TWO, and Dragunov trips Waller! Waller kicks Dragunov away, Dragunov tiger feints and CHOPS! Dragunov reels Waller in to CLUB him down! Waller is gasping and fans want that “ONE MORE TIME!” Dragunov drags Waller up to CLUB him again! Waller’s soul might be leaving him but Dragunov fires off boxing elbows! Waller ducks the backhand to JAB, but Dragunov ENZIGURIS! Fans fire up and Dragunov stands up. Dragunov runs in to KNEE Waller against ropes! Dragunov pump handles Waller for an EXPLODER! Waller crawls but Dragunov snarls.

Fans fire up as Dragunov stalks Waller. Dragunov waistlocks but Waller hurries to fight it! Waller headlock punches Dragunov right in the eyes! Fans boo but Waller mule kicks and ROLLING KICKS! Waller hobbles to a corner while Dragunov is down. Waller hops up, walks along the ropes, and takes his shot, BALLER ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Dragunov survives and Waller is frustrated. Fans rally up, Waller drags Dragunov around and he rains down forearms to the back! Cover, TWO!! Dragunov is still in this but Waller shouts, “This is MY house!” Waller clamps on a SLEEPER! Dragunov endures, fights up, and he RAMS Waller into a corner!

Waller holds on but Dragunov throws elbow after elbow! Dragunov RAMS Waller again, but Waller shoves him away. Dragunov tiger feints for the CONSTANTINE SPECIAL! Fans fire up as both men stir and stand. Dragunov goes to a corner, fires up, but Waller dropkicks his legs out! SLEEPER! Waller has Dragunov caught with body scissors and fans fire up! Dragunov slips his hands into the grip but Waller stands up to shift the hands! Dragunov THROWS Waller off! Both men stagger, Waller slingshots to HOTSHOT Dragunov down! Waller then sets up at the ramp, but the lights change! Waller looks to see the wheel! The wheel spins on its own!?

Waller hurries to run and somersault, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! And another! Dragunov holds on, Waller fights the waistlock, so Dragunov Gotch Lifts! SINGLE LEG SUPLEX! Fans fire up with Dragunov as he slaps some sense into himself! “UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!” TORPEDO MOSCOW!! Cover, Dragunov wins!

Winner: Ilja Dragunov, by pinfall

The Czar wins quite the fight with Waller, but Waller is still not sure what he saw. Will Waller be ready for whatever fate Apollo has in mind? But wait, Bron SPEARS Dragunov!! Bron tears off his shirt because that was on purpose! The NXT Champion stands tall over Dragunov, and JD is in the crowd applauding! Is the Irish Ace going to play his two opponents against each other? Or will he end up collateral damage when these titans collide?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of NXT to continue from Extreme Rules and Raw, as well as continue towards Halloween Havoc. We got a legit Match of the Year candidate out of Frazer VS Axiom in their third round. Frazer winning in that quick fashion was a great move, as it keeps Axiom fairly strong in defeat. Frazer in the ladder match is great stuff, that’s quite a lot of speed in that match with him, Wes, Melo and Oro. Really good stuff from Wes VS Stacks, and after that quick brawl, I wonder if we’ll get a tag match of Melo & Trick VS Wes & Oro in next week’s go-home. And I’m very curious to who is facing Stacks next week. I would think Tony’s line about the theme song means it’s someone already established in NXT.

Stone getting involved in Thea VS Kiana was a bit of a surprise, but of course Stone gets whooped. Von wants him to get serious, and you can be Stone will interfere in the ladder match, but I don’t see Von coming out the champion. Speaking of Thea VS Kiana, what an interesting story for a feud. Kiana wants to get into land development, even if it means tearing down a school that, as far as anyone can tell, has good numbers. I feel like Kiana is gonna need to recruit male wrestlers for this feud, and I’m sure there are any number of prospects waiting in the wings for a screen time opportunity. Just about anyone that’s a regular on Level Up could jump into this.

Stark and Lyons had a good promo together to parallel Kayden & Katana from last week. I could see their match with KC Squared going either way, but that’s going to make for a very fun match on the go-home. And just as their promo together teased, I also had a feeling we’d be seeing Quincy VS Quinn and then Quincy & Hank as a team. It also seems Veer and Sanga are getting their team back together, at the unfortunate expense of Feroz. She lost her support so she lost to Indi, which is good for Indi even though I still feel she should be going to Raw by now to join literally everyone else in The Way. But as for Veer and Sanga, being some new form of Indus Sher would be pretty awesome for the men’s tag division.

Speaking of, we got a very goofy promo from Pretty Deadly but a great Triple Threat Tag. I like that it was a full Triple Threat, with every team legal at once. And I love that Grimes attacked Gacy to help Malik & Edris. I was hoping Grimes, Malik & Edris would be the ones facing The Schism together, but it seems there’s going to be a RawDown related surprise. Who could it be Grimes is talking about that he knows so well? As for Malik & Edris, they’ll give Pretty Deadly a great match, but I can’t say Malik & Edris will win. It’d be awesome if they did because fans really like those guys, but it feels like Pretty Deadly is really only getting going as champions.

Did anyone else get just the cheesiest after school special vibes from the Diamond Mine promo? Just something about it seemed so soap opera meets 90s teen series. But point is, Roddy is a good guy again, he and the rest of Diamond Mine put the past behind them because they know Damon’s the real enemy. At the same time, because an Ambulance Match is No Disqualification, there has to be some kind of twist coming. Brutus and maybe even Strong could try and help Julius, only for Damon to use that against Julius. But at the same time, I would hope Julius wins so that he and Brutus aren’t separated.

Good stuff from Alba and Toxic Attraction, and what a twist that Sonya is Mandy’s friend again. I feel like Sonya is stepping in so that Mandy can have some time off to plan for the wedding with her fiancé and former NXT superstar, Tito Sabbatelli. Fyre VS Sonya is going to be great stuff, and I would think Fyre wins to get some momentum back. This new wrinkle makes me wonder if Mandy really will pass one year as champion, and we’ll have to wait until closer to Royal Rumble or even WrestleMania for someone to dethrone her. Ugh. Honestly, I feel like a loss at her one year mark makes for a clean exit for Toxic Attraction to join Sonya on RawDown as we head into those same seasons.

And of course, great stuff out of the NXT Championship story. It was natural for JD to show up as Bron is about to have his match. JD didn’t exactly help Javi out, he just watched as Bron squashed the guy. Great tie-in with Waller’s story with Apollo, and Waller gave Dragunov a great match in the main event. I wish we’d gotten to see the wheel stop so we know what kind of match Waller is having with Apollo, but maybe Apollo’s line about “the dark” is a clue. Lights Out? That’d be pretty fun since Wendy VS Tiffany in Lights Out was great stuff. But wheel distraction or not, of course Dragunov won here. And good use of the “accidental attack” near the start of the show and bookending it (no pun intended) with Bron’s ambush attack to close the show. Of course JD wants to use these two against each other, but I feel like that just means it’s between one of them to win the Triple Threat.

My Score: 8.8/10

Christian Cage speaks.

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision. That’s right, it’s been 365 days since I singlehandedly put this show on the map when I won the TNT Championship int he very first episode, and went on a run with the TNT Championship that will never, ever be seen again.

And in the spirit of usual unpredictability, on the eve of the most important holiday of the year, Father’s Day, I guarantee you, Christian Cage’s Collision is going to end up being… very special.” Just what does The Patriarch have in mind for “his” show?

 

8 Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Rocky Romero, Lio Rush & TMDK!

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men! The BCC is looking to still be the baddest group around, but will they be rolling on towards Forbidden Door? Or will Azucar, The Bad Child and the NEW Undisputed NJPW Tag Team Champions prove they’re just a little bit badder?

The teams sort out and The American Dragon starts against Lio. The fans rally for “B C C! B C C!” as Bryan and Lio circle. They feel things out, Lio ducks the roundhouse but Bryan blocks a kick!

Rocky slides under, kicks, Yuta ducks the enzigiri but not the HEEL KICK! Yuta rewinds to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!

The ref has everyone back off, but Rocky gets cheap shots on Bryan! The ref reprimands, Rocky backs off, and Shane drags Bryan in to stomp him down. Shane drags Bryan up, cravats, then tags in Lio. They mug Bryan, and Lio fires off at the ropes! Tag to Rocky, he adds on with KICKS! Rocky stomps Bryan down, tags Mikey, and they mug Bryan some. Mikey then CHOKES Bryan on the ropes! The ref counts, Mikey lets off, and Bryan sputters as he reaches out. Mikey drags Bryan up to tag in Rocky, and the mugging continues! The ref has to keep The BCC back and that lets the whole team beat up on Bryan!

Rocky taunts Yuta, goes back to Bryan, and brings Bryan around to snapmare. Rocky clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Bryan down. Bryan endures, fights up, but Rocky becomes a backpack! Bryan still reaches out, steps forward, but Rocky lets go to whip Bryan to a corner! Collision returns to single picture, Rocky runs up to clothesline! Rocky keeps going, TWO-EVER! Then THREE-EVER!

Claudio powers Lio around to TOSS into the DEATH RIDER!! Cover, BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring! A chain, a trash can, and the lid! Rosa SMACKS Deonna with the lid! And then pushes the lid into Deonna with a boot!

The fans want tables but Rosa runs up first. Deonna dodges, Rosa dropkicks the steps! Deonna drags Rosa up, puts an arm between steps and post, then BOOTS the steps! Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and the two fight over a chair. Deonna JAMS Rosa up, takes a swing, but Rosa dodges! Rosa BOOTS the chair into Deonna! Then Rosa grabs the chair to JAM Deonna, and SMACK her on the back! And SMACK her again! Rosa brings Deonna around, fireman’s carries, and SAMOAN DROPS her on the folded table! Cover, TWO! Deonna is still in this but Rosa drags her around to put in a corner. Rosa hoists Deonna up top, goes up after her, but Deonna fights with body shots! Rosa CLUBS Deonna in return, but Deonna slips under! Rosa rains down fists, so Deonna YANKS her into the buckle! CHEEKY NANDOS!

Rosa falls into the Tree of Woe, Deonna runs up and this time, she RAMS into Rosa! Rosa falls out of the Tree, Deonna covers, TWO!! Rosa survives that Spear of Woe or whatever you’d call it, and the fans rally up. Deonna drags Rosa up, slashes her throat, and then Gotch lifts, but Rosa fights that! Rosa wrenches out to FULL METAL DDT!! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives hitting steel but Rosa won’t let up. Rosa brings Deonna over to a corner, and puts the trash can around her! The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS! They fire back and forth, CHOP for forearm, then Castle fires off a flurry! Castle runs, but HEchi follows to CROSSBODY! Hechi slips right into a SLEEPER at the ropes! Hechi shoves Castle away, goes up, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Hechi kicks Castle around and eggs him on.

Hechi CLUBS away on Castle, runs, but Castle wrenches to LARIAT, KNEE, and DDT! The fans fire up as Castle gets a wild look in the eyes. Castle clamps on a half nelson, then CLUBS away on Hechi to get him up. Hechi fights with elbows of his own, but runs into an Alabama Lift! Castle spins, BANGAAA- NO, Hechi slips free, pops Castle up, and has the COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET! Castle flails, pushes back to a cover, TWO! Hechi keeps the body scissors, wants the rear naked choke but Castle rolls. Hechi drags Castle up but Castle arm-drags free! Hechi BOOTS back, swings, but Castle blocks to ELBOW!

Castle snarls, runs, but Hechi follows to LARIAT in the corner! Hechi fires fast hands and a CHOP! Castle sits down, Kaun & Liona like what they see. Hechi powers up but runs into a clinch! EXPLODER! Castle and Hechi both rise, and the fans fire up with Castle! Hechi swings, but into another lift! Hechi sunset flips, TWO!! Castle just manages to escape, and he BOOTS Hechi! Hechi goes to a corner, Castle runs in but Hechi dodge! SHINING WIZARD! Hechi keeps going, LA MYSTICA LEG DROP! Cover, Hechi wins!

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

That was some in-ring magic for sure! The Gates of Agony celebrate with their new ally, will they and The Machine, Brian Cage, soon take over AEW and CMLL? But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remised if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop. Lee handsprings, then shimmies and shakes. The fans cheer and the two reset. Dante and Lee feel things out, and the fans are behind Dante. Lee gives a testing kick, then the two knuckle lock. Lee wrenches, trips Dante, then GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! The fans are torn, but Lee drags Dante around by the leg< Dante kicks free, reaches up, and RANAS! The fans fire up, Dante speeds up, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then jumps to RANA again!

Lee flounders, Dante stays by ropes,. Lee runs up, Dante goes up and over! Lee tumbles out of the ring, Dante builds speed! Dante FLIES, but lands safe as Lee moves aside! Lee thinks he’s safe, but then Dante uses the corner to DROPKICK Lee down! Dante copies the shimmy and then drags Lee up. Dante CHOPS Lee against the railing! The fans fire up for that one, and Dante puts Lee in the ring. Dante then jumps right up to the apron, springboards, but Lee trips him up! Dante tumbles back down and Lee grins. Lee claps and the fans applaud, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee waits on Dante, and Dante slides back in. Lee stomps Dante at the ropes again and again and again! Dante writhes, Lee drags him up, then KNEES low. Lee fires m ore knees, then shoves Dante to RAM into him. Lee reels Dante in to HALF HATCH! Roll back and cover, TWO! Lee keeps on Dante with a hammerlock, then traps that arm to go after the other. Dante endures, even as Lee pushes on the arm. Lee twists the fingers and wrist to bend the arm, and then use it as a recliner! Dante endures as Lee gives a thumbs up. Lee then sits back up, to stomp the arm down! Dante writhes, Lee stomps him around, then Lee drags Dante up.

Lee fires more knees into Dante, shoves him, but Dante leaps up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Lee ROCKS Dante with fast hands! Dante blocks a kick but not the KNEE! Dante sits down, Lee basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Lee is annoyed but he clamps onto the arm again. Dante endures, Lee bends the fingers and wrist, to JAM the fingers into the mat! Dante still endures, but Lee clamps on, chinbars, and pushes on the joint. The fans rally, Dante fights, but Lee throws knees to keep him down. Lee pulls on the chinbar but Dante powers up. Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally as Dante pries free!

Dante arm-drags Lee away, Lee runs up, but Dante BOOTS him! ROLLING ELBOW! Dante ROCKS Lee again, whips, but the bad arm jams up! Lee whips Dante away, runs up, but Dante slips to the outside! Dante ROCKS Lee, springboards to go up and around, but Lee grabs a leg. Dante kicks him away, jumps again and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Lee survives but Dante stays focused. The fans fire up with Dante as he rises, and Dante reels Lee in. Lee fights the half nelson, so Dante CLUBS away! Lee wrenches free of the waistlock, brings Dante to a knee, and he SNAPS the fingers! What a villain!

Lee gets Dante’s arms tired up, clinches, YOYO URENAGE! Into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Dante endures, reaches out, and he crawls with the one free arm! Lee kicks at that arm, but Dante uses a leg for the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Lee lets off, and then Lee brings Dante up! Lee suplexes into a SLAM, then covers, TWO!! Dante escapes that deep tuck and Lee is frustrated. Lee kicks at Dante while they’re both down, then Lee rises up. Lee aims, Dante rises, and Lee runs up, but Dante ducks the kick! JUMP KNEE! Lee wobbles, but he BOOTS back! Lee runs up, into a KNEE from Dante!

Dante goes up, METEORA! Lee is down and the fans fire up as Dante climbs a corner! MAMBA SPLASH!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, the fourth spot is filled! Dante joins Mark Briscoe, Konosuke Takeshita & Jack Perry, but wait! Shane Taylor & Anthony Ogogo show up to mug Dante! The fans boo as STP are sore losers! BODY SHOT from Ogogo! But here come Darius & Action! They fight with STP but that’s 3v2! Shane DECKS Darius, Ogogo GERMAN SUPLEXES Action! URENAGE for Darius! The fans boo more but STP doesn’t care. Lio Rush hurries out here, he asks what this is all about. Shane dares Lio to bring his little ass in here! Lio does, and he slips under Shane to shove Ogogo into him! Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

The Violent Artist has been trying to do things on his own, but even now, Roderick Strong & The Kingdom tag along. They’re on commentary for this match, and BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite! It will be an “All-Star 8 Man” as Roderick Strong joins forces with Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita and Zack Sabre Jr. VS Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy, Dante Martin & Mark Briscoe. Will the Savior of the Backbreaker still be able to support his “friend” here tonight knowing that now? Or will Roddy find himself rooting for the other guy?

The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, and tie up. Henry powers Kyle back but Kyle turns that around. They go around and around, Kyle waistlocks but Henry switches. Kyle switches and drags Henry down Henry blocks one kick but has to duck the other! The fans cheer as Henry backs off, and the two reset. Kyle and Henry feel things out, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder. They go around, Henry throws Kyle down but Kyle has the leg guard up. Kyle kicks one knuckle lock apart to trip Henry up. Henry uses a leg guard now, but Kyle stands. Henry uses body scissors to climb up and go for the arm!

Kyle moves around, back drops and ARMBAR! Henry scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Kyle lets go, KICKS at Henry, then wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! This relentless Kyle is the kind Roddy likes. Kyle wrenches, whips, but Henry holds ropes! Kyle KICKS the leg, then hooks it. Henry turns that around to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Henry traps Kyle’s head to NECK TWIST! Henry holds on, grabs an arm, then gives some kicks. Kyle just gets mad! The fans rally for Kyle and Roddy also coaches Kyle. Kyle stands, Henry KICKS, but Kyle ROCKS Henry. They fire off forearms, henry fires a strike fest!

Kyle blocks a kick, gives a strike fest in return, then SWEEPS the legs! The fans fire up as Henry flounders to a corner. Kyle runs up to forearm SMASH! Then wrench and ELOBW BREAKER, to a KNEE, to a suplex and FALCON ARROW into the ARMBAR! Henry TAPS, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

Roddy says that’s because of his presence! Roddy says Kyle is clearly missing something, or someone, to help him get that edge. Will Kyle show Roddy plenty of that “edge” this Wednesday?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS The House of Black!

We heard from Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin earlier tonight, but now is time to put up or shut up! Malakai, Brody & Buddy have been World Trios Champions before, but will they get one step closer to becoming Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions? Or will the House fold when facing the Collision Cowboys in their house?

The trios sort out, but then they all step to each other. The fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but we get Juice and The Dark Father. Juice and Malakai circle, then tie up. Malakai headlocks, Juice powers out but Malakai runs him over! Cover, ONE and Juice arm-drags! Malakai headscissors, Juice kips free, but Malakai avoids the arm-drag to sit down. The fans fire up, so Juice lifts a leg a la dogs. Malakai stands up to KICK Juice down! Juice scrambles away, Austin tags in. Austin is all fired up, but then Brody tags in! Austin turns around and tags Colten! Colten says that’s fine, he can bark it up. Brody swings, Colten bobs ‘n’ weaves and ROCKS-

Er, well, no, Brody doesn’t seem too bothered. Brody runs Colten over, he runs Austin over, then runs them both over! The Gunns stagger up, Brody runs up to DOUBLE LRIAT them out! Juice runs in but Brody TOSSES him out onto The Gunns! The fans fire up as The House stands together, they all build speed, but the Bang Bang Gang gets in to say BANG! So the House DECKS them all! The House tosses everyone out and the brawl is on as Collision goes picture in picture!

Brody is after Juice, Malakai TOSSES Austin, and Buddy CHOPS Colten. Malakai BOOTS Austin into the crowd! Brody sits Juice in a corner to CHOP! Malakai joins in to mug Juice, and Buddy KNEES Colten. Brody brings Juice around to whip hard into railing! Austin returns but Malakai KNEES him down. Brody CLUBS Austin, the fans fire up, and Brody CHOPS Austin. Buddy brings Colten over to join in, and he UPPERCUTS Colten into a seat. Brody herds Austin and Juice that way, the Bang Bang Gang all take seats, and Malakai KICKS away on them all! The fans hoot and bark with Brody as he runs in, to TRIPLE CROSSBODY!

The fans cheer and high-five Brody as The Bang Bang Gang all slumps down. Brody drags Colten up to put him in, and then stalks Colten to his empty corner. Brody grins at Colten’s fear, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns again and Buddy tags Malakai. They mug Colten, then Malakai wrenches to tag Buddy. Buddy climbs up to DOUBLE STOMP Colten’s arm! Buddy taunts Austin, goes back to Colten and wrenches. Tag to Malakai and he KNEES the arm! Malakai wrenches but Colten throws him down by his hair! Tag to Austin and Austin stomps away on Malakai! The ref counts, Austin lets off, but Malakai BOOTS him! Austin runs up to CLOBBER Malakai! Austin throws hands, then tags in Colten. They whip Malakai, to BODY SHOT, KNEE LIFT, and DROPKICK! Juice tags in to SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Juice stands on Malakai, the Gunns YANK Buddy & Brody down! Juice whips Malakai hard into the corner! Juice stomps away on Malakai, argues with the ref, then drags Malakai back up. Juice snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is frustrated. Juice stands Malakai up to bump him off buckles, then he tags Austin in. They mug Malakai, Austin asks “Who’s the Ass Boy now?” “YOU!!” Austin frowns, then fires hands on Malakai. Tag to Colten, he stomps away on Malakai. The ref counts, Colten ROCKS Malakai but the fans rally up. Juice tags in, he stomps at Malakai, then eggs him on.

Juice HEADBUTTS, but Malakai ROCKS Juice, DECKS the Gunns, then fires off on Juice! Juice blocks a kick, to LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is upset with the ref’s count! Juice clamps onto Malakai for a chinlock but Malakai endures. Malakai fights up as the fans rally, and Malakai KICKS the bad leg! Juice THROAT CHOPS back! Malakai falls into a corner, Juice goes corner to corner, CANNONBALL only gets buckles! Malakai crawls, as does Juice, hot tag to Colten! He CLOBBERS Malakai, then whips him away. Colten runs up, but only gets buckles! Austin tags in, grabs Malakai’s foot, but Malakai BOOTS him into Colten!

Hot tag to Buddy! The fans fire up as the Aussie Juggernaut fires off strikes and a BOOT to Austin! POP-UP KNEE for Colten! Austin runs up, into a tilt-o-whirl and LAWN DART into Colten! Buddy reels Austin in for the JACKHAMMER! Cover, Juice breaks it! The fans boo but Juice hurries to BLAST Brody! Juice goes back to Buddy to whip, but Buddy lands safe on the apron! Buddy GAMANGIRIS Juice, bumps him off buckles, then BOOTS him away! Buddy goes up, Juice staggers around, into the METEORA! Cover, TWO! Buddy’s bad knee is bothering him, but he hobbles up to tag in Brody. Brody storms in and the fans fire up as we go picture in picture again.

Buddy has medics check his knee, he may have taken himself out when he hit Juice. Brody does his best to focus on the match, and he puts Austin in a corner. Buddy is in some serious pain, though. Brody runs up to CLOBBER Austin in the corner! Brody hoots and barks and gets the fans back into this. Brody roars, runs, but Colten saves his brother! The Bang Bang Gang regroups on the outside, the medics are still checking on Buddy but it isn’t looking good. This is basically 3v2 now. Juice & The Gunns strategize, knowing they have the advantage now. The ref has Bang Bang Gang settle down a minute while Buddy is helped to the back.

The fans applaud as Buddy is doing his best to walk on the good leg, and Collision returns to single picture. But the Gunns jump on Brody, they and Juice mug him, and Malakai tries to help but is sent back out! The fans chant “YOU SUCK!” but the Bang Bang Gang doesn’t care! Tag to Colten and he stomps away on Brody. The ref counts, Colten tags Austin back in, and now Austin stomps Brody. Tag to Juice, he gets some stomps in! The fans still taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but Juice blows boogers onto Brody! Then Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice covers, TWO! Brody stays in this and the fans fire up!

Austin tags in, then he tags Colten. The Gunns get Brody up, whip him to ropes, but Brody denies the 3:10 with a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Juice runs up, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Brody is down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, the fans hoot and bark, hot tag to Malakai! Malakai breaks through Colten’s lariat to BOOT Austin! Malakai dodges Colten, DECKS Austin, then ELBOWS Colten! A strike fest and a LEG SEWEP for Austin! SLIDING KNEE! The fans fire up, but Juice takes the QUEBRADA for Colten! Malakai still ROUNDHOUSES Colten and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Malakai snarls and the fans fire up! Colten rises, distracts the ref with talk of injury, and Juice grabs a leg! Malakai kicks Juice away, but Colten runs up, FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Colten’s shot doesn’t finish this but he tags to Austin. The Gunns get Malakai up, double whip, 3:10- NO, Malakai BOOTS Colten, BOOTS Austin, but Juice HOTSHOTS! FAMOUSER from Austin! Cover, TWO!! Malakai survives and Austin is stunned! The Gunns reload, call their shot, and they coordinate with Juice! Juice goes up, but Brody is back! The Gunns dodge him, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! But they have to get Malakai down!

Austin turns Malakai, Juice finally aims, but PAC is here?! The Bastard spooks Juice, trips him up, then flips off Austin! Austin swings on Pac, but turns around into THE END!!! Cover, The House wins!!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

The Bastard told The Bang Bang Gang that he was not going to let what they did to Death Triangle slide! The House still gets the win, even with Buddy going down with a bad knee. But then The Patriarchy has to come in via the tron to ruin all the fun. Christian Cage says congratulations to The House. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contenders to the World Trios Championships. The only problem is, they’re not a trio anymore. The Patriarchy reveals they took out Buddy!! The Patriarchy leaves Buddy down and out, right as Malakai & Brody rush to the back! Will Christian Cage stoop to new lows just so he and his “sons” can rise up the ranks?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision for the anniversary episode, and I appreciate it was more rock, less talk. The only real talky stuff was everything Christian Cage did, but even that wasn’t so bad because he didn’t take forever getting to the point. He takes credit for all the good Collision content, heavily favors Nick Wayne over Killswitchasaurus, and then tries to hide his failure at Double Or Nothing by going for the trios titles, which he can totally just use Nick and Luchasaurus to win for him when the time comes. Really good promo from Bang Bang Gang in response, and great main event between Bang Bang Gang and House of Black.

If Buddy isn’t actually hurt, he was doing amazing acting tonight. And with how Christian “attacked” Buddy, it seems the story is the same either way: The House will need a new third man to challenge Jay White & The Gunns. Pac showed up to stick it to the Bang Bang Gang, so maybe The Bastard becomes an honorary member of The House of Black just to take the titles. And honestly, what better feud than Christian “Greatest Father Ever” Cage and “The Bastard” Pac, with how “bastard” also has the old definition of “a fatherless child.” And honestly, when is Luchasaurus going to break away from Christian? Should happen during the trios title match.

Really good 8 Man Tag, but I should’ve figured BCC would win, and that Moxley would again tell Naito that he’s done after Forbidden Door. It’s the same thing he’s been saying all week since Dominion last Sunday, he’ll probably keep saying it for those who weren’t paying attention, and I am starting to think that’s just because he’s going to lose in Long Island so Naito can have finish his last run with the world title. And good integration as Lio says hey to Dante before Dante has his match with Lee. Great win for Dante, and I figured he would because you need a true high-flyer in a ladder match. Lio helping fight off Shane Taylor Promotions is also interesting, can’t wait to see which way this splits. Could someone be leaving Top Flight to join STP?

Kyle VS Henry was a strange filler-not-filler, because at least we got the news of an 8 Man Tag happening for Dynamite. It’ll be a great match, with some Forbidden Door build involved as Cassidy will be facing Zack Sabre Jr. and now we’ll be seeing Mark Briscoe, Dante Martin, and Konosuke Takeshita in the ladder match. With that, feels like one of the Kyles takes a loss. Either Roddy purposefully costs O’Reilly or accidentally costs Fletcher. I’m thinking the former so that Roddy can insist O’Reilly still needs him to be relevant. Then they can take that feud through the Summer, maybe even into the Men’s Owen Hart Cup.

Really good promo from Shida, and she’ll be a great part of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Probably won’t win it, though, with the potential story of Mariah May challenging Toni Storm, or with Willow looking to go back-to-back. Very good match from Hechicero VS Dalton Castle, and it was a rather clever move that The Outrunners were the pseudo-boys that failed to save Castle while Garcia & Menard succeeded. Add Angelo Parker to that and you’ve got an 8 Man Tag right there of Garcia, Menard, Parker & Castle VS Hechicero & The Cage of Agony. Very good No DQ match from Deonna VS Rosa, but as I said earlier in the week, I figured Deonna would win. She’s a Heel, the current champions are Faces, she will make a good challenger to maybe the TBS Championship for All In.

And a great promo from The Acclaimed to call out The Bucks for their continued abuses of power. Cutler being the scrub that takes beatings on behalf of The EVPs is a pretty silly recurring gag, but Daniels getting in on the fun was good stuff. The Acclaimed surely do find a way to win the Title Eliminator in order to force a title match that The Bucks probably cheat to win. This probably still leads to Acclaimed helping Swerve for Blood & Guts, as I sensed on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

It’s the Clash at the Castle Countdown Show!

Join Michael Cole, Kevin Owens & Big E in discussing, analyzing and predicting all the action going down in Glasgow!

 

Exclusive interview with Drew McIntyre.

Jackie Redmond sat down with The Scottish Warrior, she asked how he’s doing. Marvelous! Medically cleared in time for Clash at the Castle. How much does this event mean to him? Well, it wasn’t a thing growing up. There were no PLE’s in Scotland. It was all about making it to WrestleMania, did it. Won, that was cool. Won it again before getting screwed over, but main eventing the first PLE in Scotland? Beyond a dream come true. Then what does Scotland mean to him? McIntyre will sum it up with lyrics, Caledonia. Poetic name for Scotland. “Scotland, let me tell you that I love you, I think about you all the time. Caledonia, you’re calling, now I’m coming home.”

So when you think of Glasgow, what memories come to mind? What lessons did he learn before traveling the world? He spent four years there, at university. He can’t really talk about those lessons, not PG. But what he can share is to speak your mind, be passionate. If someone goes too far and runs their mouth, give them a “kiss” between the eyes. AKA the Glasgow Kiss. That tracks. And this isn’t his first Clash at the Castle. He was at the first, in Cardiff, and it didn’t go his way. Could he take us back to that night and how that felt?

McIntyre never felt that kind of emotion from a crowd. They were 100% in his corner, his family and friends were there, but “The Elders” had Solo Sikoa screw him over. That was a shot through Drew’s heart, through his family’s heart, through The UK’s heart, and he can’t let that happen again. Is he over that yet? Nope, absolutely not. Will he ever be? Nope. He didn’t think about it, pushed it down, but things flare it up. Ten months, still waiting for an apology, but people have such short term memory. Trauma doesn’t go away easily.

There is a lot the last year that has upset him, yet Drew’s renewed with the WWE? Why is it important to be here even though he gets upset? To be honest, he was thinking of taking time off. He was at the end of his contact, he’d just lost his sister in law, his wife’s sister, and she was struggling, the family was struggling. He went home to a wedding, got to see people he hadn’t gotten to see in so long. He wanted to think what was best for his future. But he and his wife talked, and they both agreed that it wasn’t time to walk away. You don’t walk away from the table when you’re on a heater. So they wanted to figure out what’d work for his career.

Thankfully, WWE was on the same page, they’ve gotten a situation figured out so McIntyre can give as much as he can to both family and career. He’s so obsessive with this business that it’s good to have that balance. Jackie likes that saying, “you don’t walk away when you’re on a heater.” WWE right now definitely feels like it has the heat, so what does he make of the state of the company? Everyone top to bottom is killing it, even interviewers like Jackie. We haven’t had a roster this talented in the ring and people who have found themselves. The matches are on a different level, just look at the numbers. BILLION dollar contracts!

Now it is up to the roster to get it done. The only thing that needs improving is the World Heavyweight Championship, and that means taking it from Damian Priest. More of this interview to come later on in the Countdown.

 

Backstage interview with The Alpha Academy.

Cathy Kelley is with Chad Gable, Otis & Maxxine Dupri ahead of Gable’s Intercontinental Championship match with Sami Zayn. Gable, in Montreal, you came up short- Er, didn’t win… So how is tonight going to differ? Gable says tonight, the family is in line. They are taking orders the right way. So you will see a whole different game play out tonight. They’re here, they know the plan, and they will help him win HIS championship, no matter what. Then Maxxine, you’re in a boot, how are you feeling physically and emotionally? Gable says she’s fine! Right? Tell her! She’s fine! Don’t worry about that.

What matters is that Sami’s reign ends tonight, at the hands of Gable’s family, Maxxine, Otis and- Wait, where’s Tozawa? Otis, you were supposed to keep track of him. Tozawa’s gonna pay for this on Monday. Gable storms off, Otis & Maxxine follow, but will this really go how Gable wants?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley.

Cathy Kelley is with the WWE Women’s Champion and “Michael Cole’s favorite,” and wishes her a happy birthday! Bayley thanks Cathy, and Cathy figures the celebration should be after Clash and a win tonight. Is Bayley concerned about Piper’s hometown advantage? Bayley knows how important it is to be in front of your hometown, and she has respect for Piper. Piper laid the foundation for how WWE is even here right now. But she is also the same person that has been attacking Bayley for the last month, and ran Bayley into the wall last night. Bayley is a champion who fights for what she believes in. So sorry, but she has to beat Piper in front of her loved ones tonight.

Cathy says they were going to send this back to Cole but she’ll let Bayley do the honors. Oh, of course. “Dear Michael Cole, back to you, you idiot!” Will The Role Model give herself the best birthday present possible by getting passed Piper Niven to head for SummerSlam?

 

Chelsea Green joins the panel.

She doesn’t like Cole telling everyone she’s the sidekick and valet to Piper. They’re like chocolate & vanilla. Okay, but what is all this “we” stuff? Sorry, does Cole not have experience in healthy relationships? They are going to win the title. Kevin Owens says there was a time when he won the Universal Championship with the help of a Canadian from Winnipeg, and they tried to say “they” won the titles, but that didn’t end well. Big E does bring up when Leyla & Michelle McCool did that as #LeyCool. Yes, and so it will not end terribly because it won’t end, Chelsea and Piper will be together forever.

Then how does Piper feel about her chances tonight? Oh, Miss P was born ready, so she is super confident, and she also has Chelsea in her corner so she’s absolutely ready. Then with all this pressure, can Piper pull it off? Big E says yes. Chelsea may have… unenviable qualities, but she is in Piper’s corner, and that support has helped Piper feel confident. Yes, Chelsea has feeling Piper feeling confident and pretty and rich and skinny and tanned, just like Chelsea, and that is why Piper will win. Okay, then can Chelsea go and help Piper get ready? Chelsea says Cole will be hearing from her later. But will the Hot Mess help Piper take the title from Bayley tonight?

 

Exclusive interview with Drew McIntyre, part 2.

What does McIntyre say to certain critics who look at his actions and his words, and says he’s a hypocrite? Well a lot of people have done that. Number one is Michael Cole. Using Cole’s position of power in a way that is irresponsible. He was shouting McIntyre’s praises during Pandemic Era, and while Cole said it was all McIntyre, McIntyre said that was a team effort. But McIntyre doesn’t like certain people. If that makes him a bad guy, then say hello to the bad guy. Speaking of Pandemic Era, he won the title, but no fans. And then this year, he wins in Philadelphia, but loses it right away. Has any of this made him bitter?

No, those didn’t make him bitter. It made him stronger. Others would’ve broken apart, fallen down the card, left the company, but not him. He wants the ball in his hands, the company on his back, and he can carry them both. He has then, he will now, he’s still that same guy. And this time, in Scotland, it will be absolutely perfect and all worth it. Then in order to do that, he must beat Damian Priest. What does he think of Priest? McIntyres’ seen Priest’s evolution since NXT. He knows Priest’s backstory, his struggle, and Drew respects that journey and that talent. But in some ways, Priest is just playing champion, trying to find his role.

Priest is trying to get the buzz, the cheap pop, he’s focused on the wrong things. McIntyre tried to say that but Priest just shrugged it off, tried to be Mr. Machismo. McIntyre was just trying to help. Priest has hit his potential. McIntyre has been doing this for 20 YEARS, and that will show tonight. McIntyre’s mind reads 10 miles long, Priest’s is more like a notepad. Then finish this thought: Priest VS McIntyre, for the World Heavyweight Championship at Clash at the Castle, will be… Epic. The Scots are proud of their own, and one of their own will win.

Jackie thanks McIntyre for his time, they shake hands, and he says no real need to thank him. Warrior physically, warrior mentally. But will McIntyre be champion both physically and mentally?

 

A fight’s coming to Scotland.

The Scottish Warrior said he told us it was. A good ol’ square go. A waylay. Sorry, that’s the Scottish way of saying, “A beating.” Brutal. Unflinching. Ferocious. Never ever underestimate your opponent. It’ll be the last thing you remember. The Scots are known for their temper, so let’s make a deal. You bring the crazy, they will bring the fight. This is Clash at the Castle, and this is gonna be good!

 

Undisputed WWE Championship I Quit Match: Cody Rhodes VS AJ Styles!

The American Nightmare had respect for The Phenomenal One, which is why he gave it his all back at Backlash in France. But when Styles pulled a Mark Henry style trap, the respect went out the window, and the rulebook has gone out with it! Both men can do whatever they want to the other in an effort to get those dreaded two words out of them, but who will give in and give up in Glasgow?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and so are the stakes, all just to see who is undisputed!

The ref reminds everyone the rules: no pins, no submissions, no ring counts, no disqualifications. The fans already sing “CODY! CODY RHOOODES~!” like they did just last night. The bell rings and the fans are thunderous! Cody and Styles approach, Cody kicks then RHODES UPPERCUTS! Cody fires off hands, whips Styles hard into buckles, and Styles falls back! The fans are thunderous again and Cody gets Styles up to bump him off buckles. Cody ROCKS Styles, but has to shake out that beat up h and. Cody whips, Styles reverses then runs in. Cody goes up and over, to SNAP POWERSLAM! The fans continue to sing as Cody rises up.

Styles rises, Cody springboards, BEAUTIFUL- ATOMIC DROP! Styles CHOPS, CHOPS and bumps Cody off buckles. Styles CHOPS again, then bumps him off buckles. The fans boo but Styles CHOPS again! Styles whips corner to corner hard and Cody staggers back. Cody drops to his knees, the fans taunt Styles, but Styles storms up on Cody. Styles scoops, Cody slips free to JAB, JAB and JAB! Flip, flop, fly, BIONIC ELBOW! Styles staggers to ropes, Cody pats the mat and the fans fire up. Cody runs, and he DROPKICKS Styles out of the ring! The ref checks but Styles says get outta his face. Cody shrugs and looks under the ring.

The fans fire up, because Cody brings out a TABLE! Cody puts that aside real quick to stomp Styles down, then he gets a second table! The fans are loving this even more, and Cody sets up that second table first. Cody sees Styles go around the way, so he pursues! Cody whips Styles into and over the steps! Styles doesn’t stop here, so Cody gets him up to whip him into and over barriers! The fans fire up with Cody as he goes up onto the barrier, then AX HANDLES Styles down! The fans are even closer to the action as Cody throws hands on Styles! Styles hits back, they go to the back section but Cody throws more hands!

Cody SMACKS Styles with someone’s drink! The fans cheer more, and Cody ROCKS Styles again. Cody CLAWS Styles’ back, then whips, but Styles reverses to send Cody into railing! Styles KICKS Cody, brings him around, and whips him into the fire exit door! The fans fire up as this goes backstage, and Cody brawls with Styles in the hallway! Cody SMACKS Styles off a wall, fires more hands, then ROCKS him again. They go further back, end up by the tech area, and Cody SMACKS Styles off a trunk. Styles ROCKS Cody, then CHOKES Cody with a cable! Cody endures, throws elbows, and then shoves him into another wall.

The brawl goes off into another part of the backstage area, and they reappear by the bleachers! The fans fire up as the brawl goes back down the runway! Cody climbs up on Styles to rain down fists! Fans count, Cody stops at eight to CLAW Styles’ face! Styles staggers away, the fans stay fired up as Cody CLUBS Styles on the back. Cody brings Styles around but Styles blocks the bump to ROCK Cody! The fans chant “AJ SUCKS! AJ SUCKS!” but Styles gets in the ring. Cody trips Styles, steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Styles endures while the fans “WOO~!” Styles refuses to give up, and he drags himself around. Cody pushes on the leglock but Styles still endures!

Cody thrashes around, the fans are thunderous, but Styles goes to the ropes. The ropebreak won’t save him, but they do force Cody to let go from being scraped off. Styles rests on the apron but the fans continue to sing. Cody storms up on Styles, brings him up, but Styles fights the suplex! Styles then suplexes Cody and himself up and out of the ring and to the floor! A rough landing but the fans fire up again. Both men rise, and Styles fireman’s carries! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on the desk! Cody writhes, Styles has a sinister grin, and he drags Cody off the desk, to suplex and BRAINBUSTER on the desk!!

Styles shouts, “Ask the champ now!” The ref asks, but Cody says NO! Soo Styles BOPS Cody with the mic! And TOSSES Cody into the timekeeper’s area! Cody may have even hit the ring bell! Styles finds Mama Rhodes and talks trash to her! She gives it right back that he’s all bark and no bite! Styles stalks Cody, who is busted open! Styles DECKS Cody, then throws down more fists! Styles says, “We’ve got a bleeder!” Styles drags Cody up and into the ring, then stalks him. Cody sits up, Styles soaks up the heat, but Cody fires body shots! Styles DECKS Cody, then stomps him! Styles says he’s gonna hurt everyone’s hero!

The fans boo but Styles drags Cody up. Styles fireman’s carries, USHIGOROSHI! Cody writhes, the ref checks, but Cody says “Absolutely NOT!” Styles rains down fists on Cody, going right for that bloody forehead! Cody still says NO! Styles sighs, stalks Cody, and brings him up. Cody fires body shots! Cody ROCKS Styles, ROLLING ELBOWS, then runs, but into a DROPKICK! Cody falls and bails out while fans boo Styles. Styles grins, goes out after Cody, and SMACKS him off steel steps! Cody falls back but the fans tell Styles off. Styles soaks it up and throws the top steps away. Styles then drags Cody up to the base, like he did a couple weeks ago!

The fans boo as Styles reels Cody in, but Cody back drops free! The fans cheer and Cody rests for a moment. Cody then goes into the ring, rises up, and fires himself back up. The fans continue to sing as Styles gets in, and Cody ROCKS him! And ROCKS him again! And again! Cody fires off more shots, then roars, but Styles fires off the Phenomenal Blitz! Cody ducks the lariat to BEAUTIFUL DISASTER KICK! The fans are thunderous again as both men are down! Cody roars, the fans cheer, and Cody grabs Styles for a dragon sleeper! But Styles KNEES free, then PELES! Cody wobbles, Styles reels him in, DDT right at center!

Cody sputters, but he still tells the ref, “NO!” The fans cheer so Styles fishhooks the mouth! Styles adds on a chinlock and says he will make Cody quit! Styles ELBOWS Cody in the head, then he goes out to search under the ring. Styles finds a chair, slides that in, and stalks Cody. The fans want tables but Styles KICKS Cody down. Styles then puts the chair around Cody’s head! Styles CHOKES Cody, throws down fists, then goes to the ropes. KNEE DROP on the chair!! Cody sputters, but how can he say the words when he can’t speak!? Cody still manages a “No!” and Styles is furious. Styles goes out again, and he finds a kendo stick!

Styles brings the stick in to SMACK Cody in the ribs! And SMACK him on the shoulder! And the leg! Styles says he’s gonna hurt Cody unless he quits. Styles SMACKS and SMACKS and SMACKS Cody, even while he’s down! Cody tries to sit up but Styles SMACKS him down again! Styles tells Cody to say it, but Cody shouts “HELL NO!” Styles is beside himself, and the fans continue to sing for “CODY! CODY RHOOODES~!” Styles takes off a belt to LASH Cody with it over and over and over again! Cody writhes, Styles says he’ll keep doing it unless he says those words! Styles then straps the belt around Cody’s head to pull him back!

Ironically, the blood makes the belt slip off, so Styles LASHES Cody with it. The fans tell Styles he messed up, but Styles goes for the STF! Styles wants Cody to say it, but even with Styles’ hands in his face, Cody says “NO!” The fans rally as hard as they can, and Cody pries at the hold! But is he fading out?! Blood loss, oxygen loss, Styles lets go! Styles thinks this is enough but this is an I Quit match. See Roman Reigns VS Jey Uso during Thunderdome Era. Styles is furious and says fine, he’ll wake Cody back up. Cody grabs some water, takes a swig, and brings the bottle in to splash Cody with it. Cody does wake up, and fans cheer for “H 2 O!”

Styles goes out, and he fetches a mysterious black bag! Styles says he knows what we’re thinking, but this is even better. Not tacks, but CUFFS! Styles grabs one hand and cuffs it, then gets the other! The fans say Styles is a “KINKY BASTARD!” but Cody’s hands are trapped behind him! Styles SMACKS away with the kendo stick, with no arms to guard! The ref checks with Cody, but Cody again says “NO!” Styles tells Mama Rhodes this is HER fault. Styles says Cody gets this from her! Mama Rhodes still says he’s all talk. Styles gets in her face, so she SLAPS him! And SLAPS him again!! AND AGAIN! That’s three!!

Styles grabs a chair!! Mama dares him to try! Styles backs off, but goes back to Cody, to SMACK him on the back! And again! Cody’s gotten his hands in front of him but now his back is the target! And wait, there’s more chain in the bag?! Styles wraps that chain around his arm, then goes to the apron. Styles aims, springboards in, but Cody has the chair! Cody CHUCKS it at Styles, Styles falls back and through the table!! A phenomenal crash and burn! Cody hurries to find the keys for the cuffs. Ah yes, right by the bag. The fans know “This is Awesome!” and Cody is free! Cody fires himself up and the fans are with him!

Styles crawls back into the ring, Cody CLOBBERS him with the cuffs! Styles is busted open, he runs in, but Cody dodges! Styles hits buckles, staggers, and Cody THROAT CHOPS! Then he fishhooks Styles, before a CODY CUTTER! The fans fire up again and the fans are electric!! Cody says Styles is gonna say it! CROSS RHODES!! But Cody isn’t done there, and the fans want him to keep going! Cody drags Styles back up, CROSS RHODES!! But the fans want that “One More Time! One More Time!” So Cody grabs the chair, places that down, and FULL METAL CROSS RHODES!! Styles sputters and fans chant “You Deserve It!”

Cody doesn’t want the ref to check just yet, he has more in mind. Cody has the chair, but then thinks of something else. Cody grabs the cuffs, and he puts them on Styles! The fans fire up as Cody drags Styles over, and cuffs him to the ropes! Styles can’t go anywhere now! Cody has a chair, and tells Styles to say it or else! JAM to the leg! SMACK to the back! SMACK to the front! And again, and again, and again! Cody tees off on Styles until he slumps down! The cuff keeps that one arm up, but Cody SMASHES Styles’ leg! The fans are thunderous, but Styles says “I… SCREW YOU, CODY RHODES!” The fans boo, but Cody can feel he’s close.

Cody JAMS Styles rather low with the chair, then goes out to grab the steel steps. Cody gets those steps in the ring with a toss, and Styles has moved to a corner. Cody lifts the steps back up, and holds them high over head! Styles says okay, okay! STYLES QUITS! CODY WINS!!

Winner: Cody Rhodes (still Undisputed WWE Champion)

Even Cody’s a bit surprised it ended there. Cody asks if Mama says this is good, and she says do it! STEEL STEP ATTACK! “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody made sure Styles was humbled, and Cody stands tall on the steps. Cody holds up the title, proving he doesn’t quit, he gets even! Will anyone be able to stop The American Nightmare now?

But wait! Solo Sikoa walks out on stage? He applauds Cody’s win, then smiles at him before staring him down. And then TAMA & LOA ATTACK! The fans boo as The Bloodline goes after Cody while he’s vulnerable! BUT HERE COMES ORTON! The Viper AND Kevin Owens go after The Bloodline, clearly nothing being over from last night! Now the numbers are even and the fans fire up! This brawl goes up and down the runway, then to the back! Will Nick Aldis have to figure this out for next Friday Night SmackDown?

 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Triple Threat: Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill VS Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark VS Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn!

The StrongEST Duo has looked near unstoppable in their relatively short reign, but here in Glasgow, it’s bubble bubble, double the trouble!

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Sami Zayn VS Chad Gable w/ Otis & Maxxine Dupri!

The Great Liberator didn’t realize how deeply selfish “Master Gable” could be, but those true colors showed when Sami retained the title in Montreal. Things have gotten very personal, but can Sami show The Academy that they don’t need Gable’s abusive coaching? Or will The Academy do whatever it takes to finally bring Gable gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we’ll see just what it takes to win the big one!

There’s QR Code creepiness, something about we were told to prepare, and then the bell rings. The fans sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~!” for Sami as he circles with Gable. The two tie up, go around, and end up on ropes. They go along the ropes, off the ropes, back on the ropes, then in a corner. Sami has Gable, the ref counts, and Sami lets off slowly. The fans sing for Sami with a different song, “Sami, Sami Zayn! Sami Zayn! Sami, Sami Zayn! LALALALA!” Gable and Sami reset, tie up again, and are in a deadlock. Sami uses his height, but Gable puts Sami in the corner. Sami turns it around, but Gable turns it back around.

The ref counts, Gable grinds his forearms in, but lets off at 4. The fans boo, the two reset, and feel things out. They tie up, Gable waistlocks, but Sami wrenches to a wristlock. Gable rolls, spins, and headlocks. Fans chant for Otis but Sami endures the headlock grind. Gable hits the takeover, Sami headscissors, but Gable kips free. Roles reverses, Sami hits the takeover and Gable headscissors, but now Sami kips free. The fans rally while Maxxine looks worried. Gable and Sami feel things out, tie up, and Gable headlocks.

The fans cheer for Sami and Otis as they lock eyes! Sami tells Otis he doesn’t need Gable and Gable knows it.

Sami hits a takeover but Gable slips out to have the ANKLE LOCK! Sami gets the ROPEBREAK, but Gable KICKS the arm! Gable goes after the arm with knee drop after knee drop, then he SLAMS the arm on the mat. The fans taunt Gable, Sami shakes out his bad arm and goes to a corner. Gable wraps the arms around ropes, then CHOPS! Gable CHOPS again, then pulls on the arm! The ref counts, Gable lets off at 4, and Sami clutches the elbow.

Gable drags Sami up, hammerlocks that arm, then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Sami is still in this but he shakes the arm out more. Gable storms around, drags Sami up by his arm and has a KEYLOCK! Sami endures, the fans rally, and Maxxine is even more worried than before. Sami fights up, claws at Gable’s face and throws body shots. Sami CLUBS Gable, whips him, but Gable reverses. Gable runs in but is put on the apron! Gable HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Sami falls down and the fans rally for Otis! Gable makes sure Otis has his eyes on the prize, then goes back into the ring.

Gable CHOPS Sami in a corner, climbs up and rains down fists! The fans taunt Gable as he pie faces Sami again and again. Gable CHOPS, ROCKS and fires off on Sami in the corner! The ref counts, Gable lets off and Sami sits down. Gable tells The Academy to watch, and then he runs in. Sami ELBOWS Gable! And BOOTS him! Sami goes up, leaps, AX HANDLE! The fans fire up as Sami goes up again, to AX HANDLE! The fans fire up more, and Sami CHOPS away on Gable! Sami rains down fists, the ref counts, so Sami lets off at 4. Sami shakes out the bad arm, drags Gable up and whips, but Gable reverses! Sami goes up and over, then clotheslines Gable up and out!

The fans fire up again and Sami goes to the apron. Sami mule kicks Gable, then ARABIAN PRESS SAULTS! Direct hit and down goes Gable!

Backstage interview with Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn.

Cathy Kelley is with the NEW Women’s Tag Team Champions, and knows they are emotional after their big win. A career highlight to say the least, what does this mean to them? It means so much! They promised to win out, and they did. Those other four had zero chance when these two had ALL of Scotland behind them. And she means ALL of Scotland. No way were they letting anyone down tonight. And they plan on keeping these belts for a long, long time.

 

WWE Women’s Championship: Bayley VS Piper Niven w/ Chelsea Green!

The Role Model’s road back to the top this year started with the Royal Rumble, and ended with her dethroning Iyo Sky at WrestleMania 40. However, the Scottish Bonecrusher has been walking a much longer, much harder road just to get this moment. Will Piper add to Scotland’s wins tonight in front of her own friends and family?

WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Damian Priest VS Drew McIntyre!

This is the moment of truth. The Punisher being Senor Money in the Bank took this title at WrestleMania 40 after The Scottish Warrior took his eye off the ball. But now, in his home country, McIntyre could have his fairytale ending, the perfect moment he could never have even dreamed of. And best of all, Judgment Day is banned from ringside, so it will be all about champion VS challenger! Will Priest prove he doesn’t need pawns to stay on the throne? Or will McIntyre finally make this HIS kingdom?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly championship material!

The bell rings and the fans are already singing for “OH~, Drew McIntyre~!” Priest and McIntyre stare down, the fans change up the song, and the two tie up.

Cover, Priest wins!

Winner: Damian Priest, by pinfall (still WWE World Heavyweight Champion)

McIntyre claimed it was Punk’s fault at WrestleMania, but he can definitely blame Punk this time! Will Punk pay dearly for this? Priest survives thanks to the Second City Saint, but now The King of the Ring, Gunther, will be coming for him at SummerSlam. Will Priest definitely need some back up against Der Ring General? Or will they #ALLRISE in The Land?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Clash at the Castle, even if the Glasgow crowd wasn’t all that happy in the end. The moment Alba & Isla won the tag titles, I had a bad feeling McIntyre wasn’t going to win his match. That was an awesome match, but Priest getting stuck in the ropes was a scary moment. Hopefully he’s okay, that definitely had to suck. But a very clever move to have a ref spot and CM Punk to be the second ref. And they framed the shot so perfect to be a plot twist for us watching at home. Again, the crowd wasn’t happy about it but that’s just good storytelling for this ongoing McIntyre VS Punk feud. If McIntyre doesn’t give Punk like three Claymores before winning at SummerSlam, it won’t be enough payback.

But what a great moment for Alba & Isla to win here. The Women’s Tag Triple Threat was maybe a little too fast and too furious as Jade did botch that springboard attack, but she didn’t let it bother her. And then great use of the Triple Threat format for Alba & Isla to snipe the win, this can definitely turn into a feud between the Raw teams while Jade & Bianca maybe have to fight back up on SmackDown, or maybe even fall apart as a team. Really, anything can happen now. And as great as Piper was tonight, for the same reasons as McIntyre not winning, Piper did not win because Bayley is getting on that underdog Face champ track again, heading for SummerSlam and Nia Jax at full speed.

Great stuff in the Intercontinental Championship. It wasn’t quite how I saw it going, but Otis coming so close to hitting Gable was really good, and Otis rising above to worry more about Maxxine than anything else was a good move. Gable loses again, surely won’t get another title shot, but might end up having a match with Otis to kinda determine if Otis breaks free or is forever under Gable’s command. Sami can face just about anyone between here and SummerSlam, but I’m thinking it’s either Bron Breakker or Ilja Dragunov given how those two are bringing the intensity, which Sami can certainly match when he really wants to.

And then that I Quit match, as an opener that was like, 40 minutes I think, that was some great stuff. Naturally Cody found a way to bleed, and they got Mama Rhodes in on the action in a great way. But I do feel Styles giving up to the steel steps being brought in was a bit anticlimactic and abrupt. Maybe they realized they were going long and didn’t want to take the entire first hour just to get all the plot points in. But as great as Styles is, of course Cody was retaining here. Maybe, just maybe, Styles tries to win MITB for that one last chance, but he’ll have to qualify first so we’ll see how that goes. Meanwhile, Bloodline making their presence known, you can bet we’ll get a Six Man Tag of Solo, Tama & Loa VS Cody, Randy & Kevin, and we probably get Solo VS Cody for MITB.

My Score: 9/10
