The Good Brothers w/ AJ Styles VS The Alpha Academy!

The Original, the Official, and the ONLY Club that matters is back together! The Phenomenal One accompanies the Machine Gun, Karl Anderson, and Big LG, Luke Gallows, and they’re ready to continue where they left off. Will Gallows & Anderson make an example out of Chad Gable & Otis to the Judgement Day?

The teams sort out and Gable starts against Anderson. They tie up, Karl waistlocks but Gable wrenches out to a wristlock. Karl wrenches back, Gable rolls and spins through to headlock for a takeover! Karl keeps his shoulders up, fights up and powers out, but Gable runs him over! “A THANK YEW!” Fans boo and Styles is annoyed but things speed up. Karl hip tosses Gable then CLOBBERS him! Karl CHOPS Gable to a corner, brings him around to whip, and then he ELBOWS Gable down! Karl bumps Gable off buckles, tags in Gallows and fans fire up. Gable gets away and tags in Otis, and fans like the look of these two big men.

Styles celebrates with his boys, The OC is feeling Too Sweet! At least, until The Judgement Day shows up. Everyone has a mic but Finn starts with a “Tooooo Sweet~!” But that’s the same old same old crap! No one’s ever seen that before! Priest says the OC is crazy. The three of them think they accomplished something great last week! Fans chant, “You Suck!” Priest says they stopped caring about the fan a long time ago. But the only thing The OC accomplished is guaranteeing they’ll get cooked by the Judgement Day! Finn needs to remind us all that he’s the one who started that stupid little club! Finn made them, and he’ll break them!

That is why Judgement Day challenges the clowns to a match! But don’t get excited. It isn’t here tonight. It’ll be OC VS JD at Crown Jewel! Styles gets a mic to respond! “First of all, we accept. Second, I can’t understand why everyone does this. This is Monday Night Raw! You’re standing right there, we’re in the ring, let’s do this right here, right now! That is, unless you three boy shave to ask your mother for permission.” Dom tells Styles to shut up! Unless Styles wants to end up like Rey and end up running away to the other brand, tail between his legs, because he can’t hang with the Judgement Day!

Wow, listen to Dom. He’s so bad. So long as he’s next to the Judgement Day. Dom is trash! Dom turned his back on his own father! Dom is scum! A punk! So if Dom wants to run his mouth, let’s do something different tonight. If Dom wants to talk the talk, then he has to walk the walk. Dom and Styles can go 1v1 to handle business! Rhea says Dominik will rip Styles limb from limb. Is Dom a man or a boy? Dom says he’s gonna wipe the floor with Styles and rip him limb from limb! Then bring yer ass down here and let’s see it! Dom says whoa, he’s not ready right now. He isn’t dressed or taped up. But when he’s ready, he’ll mop the floor with Styles. In like, an hour!

Styles says fine, get dressed, tape up and drink some water. Styles will do what Rey couldn’t, and that’s beat the piss outta Dom! And THAT will be Too Sweet! Will this be a phenomenal start to the OC putting Judgement Day in their place?

 

Seth Rollins heads to the ring!

The Architect goaded Bobby Lashley into defending the WWE United States Championship last week, and now he is the NEW WWE United States Champion! Rollins swaggers his way into the ring as always, and he gets a mic as fans sing his song. “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” And he welcomes OKC to Monday Night Rollins! “Allow me to reintroduce myself. I am a Visionary! I am a revolutionary! I am Seth!” “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” Oh and yes, he is your NEW United States Champion~! “And uh, for all you folks out there who doubted me… All you haters out there who turned your back on me… Who stopped believing in me, who counted me out… You can… Kiss. My. Big, beautiful red behind! AHAHAH!”

But for all the fine folks out there who have always had Rollins’ back, who never counted him out and always believed in him, do what you’ve always done and sing his song. “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Rollins laughs and says they sound beautiful. But tonight is historic! Tonight is the first defense in what will become the greatest US Championship run of ALL TIME! In tonight’s main event, Rollins will wipe this mat with Matt Riddle’s face! And in doing so, Rollins will clear up that “miscommunication” from Extreme Rules. Fans chant, “You Tapped Out!” but Rollins tells them that he may have tapped when Riddle had him in that triangle sleeper. But that was a strategic move!

Rollins tapped for the fans! Two days later, Rollins had to come to Raw and be in the best possible condition so he could beat Lashley and become the US Champion! He did it for you! For YOU! But wait, Mustafa Ali is making his way out? Ali has a mic to say, “Hey, Seth, uh… First of all, congratulations on becoming the new United States Champion.” Rollins likes the sound of that. He knew Ali was here to party. Ali was waiting for Rollins to give a shout out to his boy, Lesnar, but… Well, if Rollins won’t mention it, then neither will Ali. But what Ali wants to say is that the former champion, Bobby Lashley, promised Ali he was next in line.

Ali gets it, though. Things change. Champions change. But Ali’s challenge remains the same. Ali wants to face Rollins, and for that US Championship. Rollins laughs and says he has a question for Ali. “Do I look like Bobby Lashley? HAHAHA! Sorry, pal, you’re gonna have to get to the back of the line.” Rollins has to focus on Riddle, but here’s what they can do. Two options: Ali can stay out here, party with everyone to celebrate the new champion; or Ali can skedaddle outta the ring. Ali doesn’t belong in the ring with Rollins. HAHAHAHAH- Ali snatches Rollins’ glasses and throws them away!

It’ snot going down like that. This might be Seth Freakin’ Rollins but he’s staring at his next freakin’ problem! Ali isn’t going anywhere, he is not backing down, he wants to fight for the title! Rollins has him stop there. Rollins appreciates what Ali is trying to do. And this might be a surprise, but Rollins likes Ali. He respects Ali. Ali in the ring is one of the best performers WWE has today. But the thing some may not know about him is that Ali is an even better person. Rollins sees Ali helping the young guys, he’s a great friend and father, and SUCKER PUNCH! Rollins rains down fists and he then throws Ali out!

Fans boo but Rollins smiles and fixes his hair. Rollins goes out and says the problem is solved. NOT! Ali CLOBBERS Rollins and fires off against the barrier! “Fight me! Fight me!” Rollins shoves Ali and throat chops! And then POSTS Ali! Fans boo while Ali writhes, and Rollins snarls as he leaves Ali behind. Win or lose, is Rollins going to find Ali coming back for revenge?

 

JBL’s limousine drives into the arena!

Last we saw that car, John Bradshaw Layfield took a not-so-happy Corbin under his wing. Are JBL and Corbin back to spread some cheer?

Backstage interview with Matt Riddle.

Cathy Kelley is back, and she asks The Bro his response to Rollins’ comments earlier tonight. “Y’know, Cath, I got to know Seth pretty well over the last few months, and I’ve come to realize he’s a lot like one of those cheap Hoverboards. He’s a lot of fun at first, but then it starts to overheat and sets your house on fire, a bunch of tech nerds try to cover it up. It’s wild. But what I’m trying to say is, Seth can use whatever excuse he wants, but I already exposed him in the Fight Pit, and tonight I’m gonna beat his ass BAD, and become the new United States Champion, Bro. Yeah.”

But then Riddle notices Ali coming back. That took guts to stand up to Rollins. If Riddle wins that title, he’ll give Ali the opportunity he does deserve. For real? Yeah, Ali’s a stallion, bro. Ali likes the sound of that. But then wait, they both hear Miz crying about his knee! What happened here? What, can’t they tell? He was looking over his shoulder for that psycho, Lumis, and then some incompetent high school dropout janitor didn’t do their job, Miz slipped and fell and hurt his knee! Miz, don’t be rude, the term is “sanitation worker.” Actually, it’s sanitation engineer.

Guys, c’mon! He’s got a torn ACL at least! Miz is gonna sue this building. He can’t compete tonight! Get the EMT or a trainer! Yeah, uh, sure. Help, guys, Miz needs help. Or he’s just trying to avoid a match by any means necessary. Will Miz avoid being silenced by the Tortured Artist?

 

Judgement Day hypes up Dominik.

Finn says they’ve been training together, and nice guys finish last. It’s always about the bad guys. Wait, behind Rhea is Cora Jade. Cora did say she’d come to Raw. Finn is sure Rhea has this under control, right? Yeah, she’s got it. What does Cora want? Well, Rhea knows Cora is facing Roxanne Perez at Halloween Havoc this Saturday, right? Yes. And Pick Your Poison is first. Roxie chose Raquel Rodriguez for Cora. Cora needs to pick Roxie’s poison, and was thinking that there was no one as ruthless and dominant as Rhea.

So let’s get this right: Cora wants Rhea to go to NXT to beat the crap outta Roxie, who used to be Cora’s friend and tag partner. Unfortunately, yes. Well, same for Rhea and Raquel. Rhea wouldn’t mind putting Roxie down for her. Rhea’s in. Cora has her proxy, will Rhea eradicate Roxie?

 

John Bradshaw Layfield heads to the ring!

The WWE Hall of Famer, JBL, is back on Raw! Fans chant for JBL as he gets the mic. “It takes a momentous occasion for the Wrestling God to come back to the WWE, and tonight is no exception. I have got an announcement that will shake the very foundation of Monday Night Raw. But before I make that announcement, I would like to say something from the bottom of my heart. And in all sincerity, to the world… I apologize. For doing this… in Oklahoma. You gotta be kidding me! The great state is right there! The Promised Land is just south of the Red River, and you trailer parker living hillbillies don’t even have the common sense to leave?

“But wait, you did leave a couple weeks ago in the Red River Shootout, when God bless Texas put up half a hundred points on the Boomer idiots! They say you’re going to the SEC? How about trying the MAC? That’s a little more your speed. But I would love to just stand out here and bash Oklahoma because honestly, I really, deep down, despise this state and every one of you. But I have got great news. Rey Mysterio has left Monday Night Raw. Dominik has finally figured out what we knew decades ago: that that deadbeat dad, Rey Mysterio, is one of the worst human beings on the planet. He wears a mask because he is ashamed of himself.

“But that void has created the greatest trade since the Bambino came to the Bronx! And I’m talking about this! So I want you ladies and gentlemen to get on your little sweat hog feet, put your fat, chubby redneck hands together, and welcome the greatest addition to Monday Night Raw in history, and that is MR. BARON CORBIN!” No longer happy, but still very rich, Baron Corbin swaggers his way out and still has pyro! Corbin swaggers his way to the ring to join JBL and shake his hand. Fans boo but JBL says, “Look at this man. He’s two, three times the size of Rey Mysterio. And the dominance of Baron Corbin starts tonight.”

JBL asked for competition, and what the WWE gave Corbin is a former world champion, a former MITB winner. JBL knows Dolph Ziggler stole the show, but he’s been stealing money from the company in 15 years! If Ziggler was around in the Attitude Era, he wouldn’t have made the cut! And after walking around backstage, looking at the roster, if any of them had been around, Hornswoggle would’ve had competition, but the only way these superstars would’ve enjoyed the show is if they bought tickets to the show like the fans. And then they would’ve enjoyed the real stars, like Corbin! “This is a star that would be a champion in any generation.”

JBL wants us to remember these words, write them down, etch them in stone: This is the Raw Emergence of a Modern Day Wrestling God! Fans boo, no way Corbin fits any of that. But here comes the Show-Off! Can Ziggler shut Corbin down and shut JBL up in one go?

Baron Corbin w/ JBL VS Dolph Ziggler!

Raw returns and the bell rings. Ziggler and Corbin circle, Ziggler slips around but Corbin TOSSES him to a corner. Ziggler elbows Corbin back but Corbin clotheslines Ziggler out! JBL is on commentary as Corbin goes out to grab Ziggler. Corbin puts Ziggler in, JBL runs down poor Kevin Patrick, but Ziggler kicks and kicks and ROCKS Corbin! Ziggler ROCKS Corbin again but Corbin BOOTS Ziggler! Corbin talks trash on OKC but they boo him. Corbin drags Ziggler up, DECKS him, then drags Ziggler up. Corbin puts Ziggler in the corner, throws hands, talks trash to fans, then he DECKS Ziggler!

Corbin digs his boots into Ziggler, lets off as the ref counts, and then drags Ziggler up. Ziggler throws hands, runs, but Corbin CLOBBERS him! Cover, TWO! Corbin looms over Ziggler, he drags Ziggler up but fans rally up. Corbin whips Ziggler, Ziggler KICKS back! Ziggler goes to a corner, he dodges Corbin and sends him into buckles! Ziggler leaps up to rain down fists! Corbin stops that at five, and he brings Ziggler around to TOSS! But Ziggler lands on his feet to ROCK Corbin, and hit a SATELLITE DDT! Cover, TWO! JBL says Corbin is the new WEW cornerstone. Corbin gets to ropes, fans rally up, and Ziggler goes after Corbin.

Ziggler ROCKS Corbin, headlocks and grinds Corbin’s face on the ropes. The ref counts, Ziggler lets off to kick and stomp and rain down fists! The ref counts, Ziggler lets off, then he brings Corbin up to scrape Corbin’s face again! The ref counts, Ziggler lets off, then turns Corbin. Corbin dragon sleepers to inverted suplex! Fans rally while Corbin goes to a corner. Corbin runs corner to corner, Ziggler dodges, Corbin slides out then in to CLOBBER Ziggler! JBL is reminded of his clothesline, and he says, “Excuse me, Dolph, you’re missing your head.” Corbin soaks up the heat, goes out after Ziggler, and Corbin drags Ziggler up to RAM him into steel steps!

Ziggler writhes, fans boo more, but Corbin is all smiles as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Corbin rains down fists on Ziggler! Fans boo and Corbin snarls, but then Corbin throws down another fist! And another! And another! Fans taunt “BUM ASS CORBIN!” as he goes to a corner. Corbin tells OKC they’re the bums, and then he drags Ziggler up. Ziggler throws body shots, Corbin shoves him away but Ziggler holds ropes. Corbin runs in, Ziggler dodges and Corbin tumbles out of the ring! Corbin gets on the apron and Ziggler fires off at the ropes! The ref counts, Corbin shoves Ziggler away. Corbin gets in, Ziggler dodges to come back with BIG clotheslines! Then a leap in the corner for a rain of fists, getting to TEN fast!

Ziggler brings Corbin out for a NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up with Ziggler, and Ziggler drops a BIG elbow! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Corbin and Ziggler slowly rise. JBL has absolute confidence in Corbin, but Ziggler kicks a leg. Ziggler runs, into a scoop! Corbin gives us a FALL AWAY SLAM, a la his mentor! Cover, TWO! Corbin is frustrated and fans keep calling him “BUM ASS CORBIN!” Corbin drags Ziggler up, reels him in, but Ziggler slips through to a FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO!! Corbin survives and JBL is stone faced confident he’ll turn it around. Corbin and Ziggler rise, and they start throwing hands!

Ziggler ROCKS Corbin, Corbin ROCKS Ziggler, repeat! Ziggler HEADBUTTS, but Corbin bucks the ZigZag to get a DEEP SIX! And a deep one! Cover, TWO!! Ziggler survives and Corbin is furious! Corbin drags Ziggler up and tells OKC to shut up. The fans refuse, “BUM ASS CORBIN” puts Ziggler up top. Ziggler throws hands on Corbin over and over then HEADBUTTS again! Ziggler adjusts, leaps, but into a choke grip! CHOKE SLAM- NO, Ziggler slips out to DROPKCIK! Ziggler dodges the boot to ZIGZAG!! Cover, TWO!?! Now JBL is worried! Fans fire up while both men are down, but Ziggler rises first!

Ziggler fires up and so do the fans! Ziggler tunes up the band, but Corbin blocks the superkick to reel him in! END OF DAYS!! Cover, Corbin wins!

Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall

JBL joins Corbin in the ring to celebrate this victorious “emergence!” Will the whole WWE Universe have no choice but to accept JBL’s proclamation that Corbin will become the next Wrestling God?

 

Miz gets checked by the trainer.

He can’t even look! Is it out of place? Is it shattered? Just do the surgery now! Byron Saxton asks if Miz can face Lumis tonight. Miz says he is in an immense amount of pain, and it doesn’t seem he’ll be able to compete tonight. Well, yes, Miz does seem bad at the moment. But a number of people on the custodial staff have come forward and claimed they saw Miz pouring water on the floor and then sitting on it. And that he set up the wet floor sign nearby. In fact, the records shows the floors haven’t needed mopping since last night. Is Byron implying Miz set this accident up? That he’s just making this up to get out of a match? How dare you!!

Miz gets mad now. Miz is very, very hurt right now, and of course people will claim he staged this. They’ll fabricate some kind of alibi because he has a huge lawsuit. But then Johnny Gargano shouts, “OH MY GOD, IT’S DEXTER LUMIS!” Miz springs up out of fear, but it seems his leg is fine. Gargano says “My bad, that’s Byron. Common mistake.” Johnny Wrestling just exposed Miz! Seems Miz can face Lumis after all. Yes. Miz’s superior DNA has allowed him to heal faster than a normal human, so that’s bad news for He Who Shall Not Be Named. Miz vows Lumis will be the one injured tonight. Will Miz find a way to fake his way through that match like he tried faking his way out of it?

 

MVP speaks.

“Allow me to make this very clear. I am not here to disparage Braun Strowman. To the contrary, I’m here to celebrate Braun Strowman. His size, his strength, his ferocity. A former Universal Champion. The very mention of the name, ‘Braun Strowman,’ strikes fear in the hearts of ordinary men. But as you can see, this gentlemen standing to my right is very far from ordinary. He is in fact the personification of the word, ‘Extraordinary.’

“That’s why this Friday, we’re going to SmackDown. And the Nigerian Giant, Omos, is gonna walk right up to Braun Strowman, and look down at him, directly into his eyes, to make sure that the so-called Monster of All Monsters understands that the 7’3″, 403 pound Nigerian Giant fears no man. Because let’s face it, monsters aren’t real. But giants are.” Omos looks ready to smash Braun, but will he #GetTheseHands instead?

 

The OC talk backstage.

The know the Judgement Day will be up to something but Styles doesn’t want Gallows or Anderson to get involved. Styles doesn’t want to get disqualified. But then Cameron Grimes walks in! What brings him to Raw? Grimes has a problem with these Schism guys in NXT, so he wanted to see if they would be his tag team partners tomorrow night. Gallows asks “Uncle Allen” if this is the guy with all the “ki-zash.” The millionaire? It’s in crypto, though. Money is money, guys. Well, sorry, Grimes, but they’re cash only brothers. So if Grimes needs partners, they’ve got his back. That is TOO~ Sweet! See you tomorrow night, fellas!

Styles tries to argue the pitfalls of crypto but the Good Brothers say they like money. They haven’t changed. Will Gallows & Anderson help Grimes beat up the Schism and get that sweet, sweet moolah?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Crown Jewel!

Dom throws down elbows, then TORNADO- NO, Styles puts Dom back up top to CHOP! Dom HEADBUTTS, and FLYING DDTS instead! Cover, TWO!!

Rhea is furious about the count but the ref defends the two. Styles rises, Dom DROPKICKS him onto the ropes! Dom dials it up, 619 misses and Styles rolls Dom! CALF CRUSHER!! Dom endures, he crawls, and he gets the ROPEBREAK! Styles lets go in frustration, but he grabs Dom. The Judgement Day drags Dom out to safety, but the Good Brothers storm over. The OC and the Judgement Day stare down, and Styles DECKS Dom! The ref keeps the Good Brothers from brawling with Finn and Priest, Styles puts Dom in the ring, but Rhea anchors Styles! Styles kicks her away, Dom rolls Styles! Cover, DOM WINS!!

Winner: Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall

The Judgement Day helps Dom steal away a win over a Grand Slam Champion! Fans boo and the OC is just as mad, but the showdown at Crown Jewel is coming. Will Styles & the Good Brothers avenge this loss in the Six Man Tag?

 

Johnny Gargano finds The Miz backstage.

Miz asks what Gargano wants. Gargano feels compelled to help a fellow Clevelander. Gargano has known Dexter Lumis a long time, and he knows “the real story.” What’s Gargano talking about? If Miz doesn’t wanna have this match, he just has to tell everyone the truth. The truth? The truth is, Miz has been “victimized by a stalker.” And after tonight, after Miz wins, He Who Shall Not Be Named- Dexter. His name’s Dexter. He will be banned from the WWE forever! Well, good luck with that. Miz tells Gargano that after he’s done with Lumis, he’ll have a score to settle with Gargano. Alright. Knee looks great, by the way. Real powerful.

Gargano leaves Miz alone, but what secret past is he talking about? Will that come to light before the end of the night?

 

The Miz VS Dexter Lumis!

The Hollywood A-Lister may not be liked by many, but for whatever reason, he is the obsession of the Tortured Artist, who is still an unsigned free agent! If Lumis wins here tonight, he earns a contract with the WWE as a Raw roster superstar. Will Lumis rejoin the WWE at Miz’s expense? Or will Miz make sure Lumis ends up blacklisted instead?

Lumis makes his entrance, and Miz attacks from behind! WITH A CHAIR! Miz SMACKS away on Lumis on the stage! He doesn’t stop until that chair is BENT! Fans boo as Miz then drags Lumis up with a full nelson, to hit a SKULL CRUSHING FINALE on the chair!! Fans boo more as Miz leaves Lumis down and out. Referees check on Lumis, this match is called off! Miz beat Lumis down, but he didn’t beat Lumis. Will this do anything to stop Lumis’ obsession?

No Contest

 

Backstage interview with Damage Control.

Byron congratulates them on their win tonight, but what’s next? Kai says back, “What’s next? What’s next!? You don’t want to shed some light on how we just beat the Raw Women’s Champion, Bianca Belair, and Candice LeRae?” Bayley agrees, she is so sick of people asking them what’s next instead of appreciating what is unfolding in front of their eyes. Let’s appreciate the now! And now, Bayley asks Byron, “Where’s Alexa Bliss?” Not sure. They got rid of her! You’re welcome! And where’s Asuka? GONE! And that’s just a preview of how DMG CTRL will continue to reign over the women’s tag division. They are the best tag team, so Shotzi & Raquel better be watching! They don’t stand a chance on SmackDown!

And as for Bayley, she’s over what happened at Extreme Rules. Bianca didn’t pin Bayley. Bayley won’t let Bianca off easy. Next week, Bayley shows us what it’ll be like when she’s back in control! We get a non-title rematch next week, but will Bayley earn herself another championship opportunity with another pin?

 

The Miz runs across Gargano backstage.

Gargano shakes his head. “Bad move, Mike.” Does he really think that’s gonna stop Lumis? The only thing that will stop is Miz giving Lumis what he promised. Miz doesn’t know what Gargano is talking about! But what Miz does know is that Lumis is NOT getting a WWE contract any time soon. Gargano feels bad for Miz. What is the worse that would happen if Miz told the truth? Miz gets canceled, loses the house, lives on the street, Gargano & Candice take over Miz & Mrs. as The Wrestling Family and- SHUT UP! The hell is Gargano even wearing?

Oh, Miz knows what this is: it’s a whistle. Gargano has it for dramatic effect. But if Miz doesn’t come clean, Gargano will become a whistleblower on Miz. Gargano teases it but Miz storms off. Just what secret is Gargano holding over The Miz?

 

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s the return of ELIAS!

The Drifter is in the ring and fans cheer as he stands in front of a keyboard. Elias introduces himself, and says it feels great to be back. Now as you may or may not know, his younger brother, Ezekiel, had his wrestling career cut short. But that is the reason Elias is back. There’s a saying in their family: the show must go on. So, Elias has one question for the fans tonight. “Who wants to walk with Elias?!” OKC does! Elias says normally he’d play a song on a guitar, but he wants to do something special for OKC tonight. He wrote a song that’s straight from the heart and soul, and wants to play it from the keys. But he does get a bit emotional.

Please, silence your cellphones and hold your applause until the end so he doesn’t get choked up. Elias takes a deep breath, but “Bro…” Matt Riddle makes his way out? He has BONGOS! Riddle is going to the ring with bongos and a mic and Elias says dude, it’s great to see you, Riddle, but this is Elias’ big night and you interrupt him? C’mon! Oh, bro, no, he’s not interrupting. Riddle has a big title match up next, but he is a HUGE fan! Elias freakin’ rocks, bro! When Zeke was around, Riddle would get so Zeke’d up, it was crazy! Riddle brought his bongos! Does Elias want a hit of the bong…os? Elias says that’s not really his thing but…

Riddle has an idea. He knows everyone knows that there’s one truth. And that is that WWE means… “OH~ Walk With Elias~!” Fans sing along Seven Nation Army style, and Riddle starts hitting the bongos. Elias can’t help but crack up, and he has Riddle calm down a second. That’s great, Elias appreciates it and he appreciates all his fans. But listen, Riddle came out, he has a big match up next. So here’s an idea: Riddle can get a front row seat, with his bongos, everyone’s in a great mood, and Elias will play the song. Then can they one day play together? Fans like the sound of that! Elias promises us right now, in front of the world, one day they will. YES!! Elias is the best!

Riddle thanks Elias, and says if Elias needs anything, he’s right here. Thanks, Riddle. Riddle sits down, the lights go down, and Elias begins. Riddle vibes as Elias plays the long intro. But then Seth Rollins makes his entrance! Elias is frustrated and Riddle is also upset, but Rollins is laughing and swaggering to the ring as always. Fans sing, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” for the Visionary, but will Rollins be singing the blues at the end of their title match?

WWE United States Championship: Seth Rollins VS Matt Riddle!

Raw returns and Elias is still ringside as the introductions are made. The belt is raised, and we see which way this tie breaks!

The bell rings, they both rush in, and Riddle gets a FLYING TRIANGLE! Rollins scrambles to the ROPEBREAK Riddle lets off, Rollins bails out, and Rollins wants Riddle to stay back. Rollins tells Elias to leave, he has nothing to do with this. Elias says he’s here for his fan, Riddle. Rollins goes up the steps, steps inside, and circles with Riddle. Rollins then bails out again to cool off. Riddle goes up the corner to tell Rollins to get in the ring! Rollins tells Riddle to back off, and then Rollins steps inside again. They circle, feel things out, Riddle throws kicks at the sore ribs, and then he fires off in the corner!

The ref counts, Riddle KICKS and KICKS until 4, and then Rollins bails out again. Riddle goes out after Rollins, and he CLOBBERS Rollins! Riddle puts Rollins in the ring, hurries after him, and deadlift gut wrenches Rollins for the suplex! Fans fire up while Rollins grits his teeth. Rollins throat chops then he CLUBS Riddle down! Rollins stomps away on Riddle, drags him back up and bumps him off buckles. Rollins whips corner to corner hard and Riddle bounces off buckles to hit the mat. Fans rally and duel but Rollins rains down fists on Riddle. Rollins drags Riddle up, but Riddle throws counter punches!

Rollins ROCKS Riddle, but Riddle counter punches again! They go back and forth, forearm for forearm, and Riddle gest the edge. But Rollins SOBATS, then snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel, Rollins drags Riddle up and CHOPS! Rollins CHOPS Riddle against ropes, and then he fishhooks Riddle’s nose. The ref counts, Rollins talks trash but lets off at 4. Riddle catches Rollins for a headscissors to the floor! Riddle then goes up, but Rollins runs away! Riddle goes into the ring instead, Elias tells Rollins how close that was, and Rollins gets mad! Rollins pie faces Elias while the ref keeps Riddle back. Elias JUMP KNEES Rollins down!

Fans fire up and Riddle has a big smile on his face. Elias gets away with one and Rollins could be out cold as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Riddle fires off forearms on Rollins. Rollins ducks the roundhouse, then fakes superkick to mule kick the legs out! Rollins SUPERKICKS Riddle down, covers, TWO! Riddle is still in this and Rollins is furious! Rollins argues with the ref but the ref says it was a fair count. Rollins fumes and tells Elias he’s gonna get his. Rollins drags Riddle up as fans rally, and Rollins gives Riddle some Kawada Kicks! But Riddle blocks the stomp to spin and PELE! Riddle kips up to forearm smash in the corner! And then another! Rollins blocks the exploder and fights free with elbows. Rollins spins, into the BROSPLODER!

Fans fire up and Riddle BROTONS onto knees! Rollins runs in at the corner, into an ELBOW! Riddle goes up, FLOATING BRO ATTACK! Cover, TWO! Rollins escapes and Riddle is surprised! Riddle rises as fans rally up and duel. Riddle drags Rollins up, lifts, but Rollins slips free to underhook! Riddle back drops, Rollins sunset flips, TWO! Riddle runs, into a ROLLING ELBOW! Rollins turns Riddle, for the DREAM SMASH- NO, Riddle ducks to ripcord, FINAL FLASH! And then gut wrench into the BRO DEREK! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives and Riddle can’t believe it! Elias coaches Riddle to keep focus and fans rally up.

Riddle drags Rollins to a drop zone and he goes up top again. Fans fire up, but Rollins CLUBS Riddle first! Rollins climbs up behind Riddle, CLUBS away some more, then he stands Riddle up! Dragon sleeper for the INVERTED SUPERPLEX! And a roll-through, for an INVERTED FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!?! Riddle shows his toughness and “This is Awesome!” Rollins goes to a corner, he climbs up while snarling at Riddle. FROG SPLASH into the TRIANGLE!! Rollins flails, Riddle throws down elbow after elbow! Rollins deadlifts to POWERBOMB! But Riddle holds on!! Rollins endures, deadlifts again, to BUCKLE BOMB!

Riddle is still holding on?! So Rollins drags him up for a RUNNING POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! And Riddle still has the arm!! Riddle has that Triangle Hold in deep, but Rollins moves around! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Riddle lets go at 4 in frustration. Rollins sputters and gasps, fans are thunderous but Elias talks some trash. Rollins leans against the announce desk, fans rally for Riddle, and now Rollins dares Elias to hit him. Elias won’t with the ref looking. So Rollins SUPERKICKS Elias! Riddle PENALTY KICKS Rollins! Riddle puts Rollins in, ducks the clothesline and POWERSLAMS! Fans fire up as Riddle puts Rollins through ropes, for the DRAPING DDT!

Fans fire up and Riddle hears the voices, bro! Riddle pounds the mat, aims, RK- NO! And Elias comes in! Rollins shoves Riddle into Elias, then hits  CURB STOMP!! Cover, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall (still WWE United States Champion)

And a CURB STOMP for Elias, too!! The Visionary gets the last laugh, taking out The Bro and The Drifter in one go! But he’s not done here! Rollins puts Riddle’s head on the belt! Rollins aims, but ALI ATTACKS! Ali won’t let Rollins get his way any longer! He blocks a kick to WHEEL KICK! Rollins flops out of the ring, but Ali DIVES out after him! Rollins hits the desk! Fans fire up with Ali as he throws off his jacket, and LEAPS over the desk to get at Rollins!! Rollins tries to run away but Ali clotheslines him over the barriers! Rollins runs away to the back and Ali shouts at him. “I’m a problem! I am YOUR problem!” Will Rollins have to look over his shoulder for The Beacon coming for him?


My Thoughts:

A great Raw here, with a lot of great build for Crown Jewel. For one, what an awesome opening segment with Lashley being there before cameras were live, and he calls out Lesnar, and they brawl. Lashley leaving Lesnar laying was a surprising and great turn around from last week, and now they’re going to have a great match at Crown Jewel. We also got a good match from Good Brothers VS Alpha Academy, of course Good Brothers win. Good promos from Judgement Day and The OC setting up their Crown Jewel match, and a really good match out of Dom and Styles, at least in terms of story. Of course Judgement Day cheats to give Dom the win, and that Six Man will be a lot of fun.

Another fun thing is that Grimes came here to ask Gallows & Anderson to be his teammates. I like that they’ll do it if he can pay them, and so there might be a moment tomorrow on NXT where they ask for the money. Cora also showed up like she promised last week, and she did ask Rhea to be her Pick Your Poison proxy, so it’s going as expected. We got a good tag match out of DMG CTRL VS Bianca & Candice, and of course they cheat to get the win. A tag title match happening on SmackDown is fine, but I suppose this is just to clear Shotzi & Raquel out of the way. I have a feeling Bayley will also cheat to beat Bianca next week, and then Crown Jewel can have a Raw Women’s Championship match.

Great return match for Corbin now that he’s back to just being Baron Corbin by name. He could’ve used way better ring gear, that cross stitch portion is flesh colored and just looks weird. I was also hoping for Corbin to incorporate more of a cowboy gimmick but oh well. If JBL keeps showing up to be on commentary for his matches, that much is going to be a lot of fun. And we got great stuff out of The Miz, and I like this new wrinkle that he supposedly promised Lumis something but is denying it. The No Contest was a bit lame but Lumis will definitely have a response, and this will escalate into something great for the promised match of Miz VS Lumis. I hope Ciampa returns so that we can get Miz & Ciampa VS Lumis & Gargano at some point.

Good promo from MVP to call out Braun on behalf of Omos, and that confrontation on SmackDown will be pretty fun. And we got great integration of stories for the US Championship. Ali wants after Rollins since Rollins took the title from Lashley, and then I almost thought Elias was going to go Heel on Riddle because of his interruption. Elias stays Face to be friendly with Riddle, and almost helps Riddle win against Rollins only to be the reason Riddle loses. I don’t know about Riddle, but I bet Ali AND Elias are going to go after Rollins and the US title for Crown Jewel. That Triple Threat would be a great match, because then Rollins can find an opportunistic way to win so no one is really hurt in defeat.

My Score: 8.7/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

 

ROH World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Dalton Castle w/ The Outrunners!

Death Before Dishonor is less than two weeks away, and Mark Briscoe needs himself a challenger!

Will it be the Savior of the Backbreaker or The Peacock that faces The Sussex County Chicken in Arlington?

Roddy slaps Castle around and taunts him. Castle rolls away to ropes and cools of. The fans rally up, the two circle again, and Castle picks a leg to trip Roddy and gator roll him. Castle waistlocks but Roddy goes under the ropes. The ref counts and Calgary is behind Castle as he lets Roddy go. Roddy bails out and regroups with The Kingdom. Taven blocks out the Castle chants, then Roddy rushes in. Castle gets around to waistlock and wrangle Roddy!

Roddy fights up, Castle shifts, but Roddy fights off the chinlock. Castle pushes him to a cover, ONE, but Castle holds onto a leg to keep Roddy down. Roddy BOOTS Castle with the other leg! Castle bails out and he regroups with his new boys, The Outrunners. They pump up for him, and the flexing inspires him!

Castle lifts Roddy but Roddy scrambles onto the ropes. Roddy ROCKS Castle, bumps him off buckles again and again, then goes up the corner.

Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Castle endures being bent back, pries at the grip, but then Roddy fishhooks his face! The ref reprimands, The Outrunners rally as hard as they can as Castle continues to fight, but Collision goes to break.

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

But will this dangerous trio soon become the baddest champions you’ve ever seen?

 

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Cassidy arm-drags Bennett but Bennett arm-drags back! Cassidy arm-drags again, then avoids Bennett’s arm-drag! The fans cheer but Taven gets in. Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
