PLAY BY PLAY

Bron Breakker is here!

The Big Booty Nephew is STILL NXT Champion after that high octane Halloween Havoc Triple Threat, and now he’s back from taking a minute to breathe. Fans bark it up as Bron gets the mic. Bron says, “Halloween Havoc was a monumental night for NXT. It was a monumental night for the entire locker room, and no, I’m not just talking about me. I’m talking about guys like Wes Lee, who climbed the ladder and captured the North American Championship. Guys like Julius Creed, in an Ambulance Match-” But Pretty Deadly makes their way out to interrupt! Kit Wilson says he has already “had enough of this nonsense.”

Fans boo as Kit tells Elton Prince, “It’s our glorious and exalted NXT Champion, Bron Breakker.” Elton says, “Yep, there he is, doing what he always does after he narrowly squeaks out a victory to keep his title.” Kit barks and mocks Bron. Bron laughs it off as Kit says, “Bah gawd, that was a scrap.” Elton mocks Bron by pretending to be Bron saying, “I’m a rough ‘n’ tough fighting champion. Where my next dog at? Step up!” “Where my dogs at?” Fans bark as Pretty Deadly strut into the ring, and Elton says Bron is “the absolute worst, and we’re sick of it.” Bron says, in his best British accent, “Well excuse me, mates. What do you two wankers want?”

Pretty Deadly gasp! “You do not talk to NXT’s dandiest highwaymen like that!” Kit says it’s bad enough for Wes Lee to be doing his Academy Award acceptance speech, and now we have this? Elton says Pretty Deadly should’ve opened tonight. Oh, Bron defended his championship for like the millionth time and he’s really cool beating people up left, right and center. Big deal! Pretty Deadly retained their titles last week, and their defense was bigger. So where’s their parade? They deserve the attention! It’s the pomp, the circumstance! Their moment to bask in the moment. Not like Bron, not like Wes and his Lifetime movie segments.

Elton says he likes that: The Pretty Deadly Spotlight. But wait! They’ve said his name enough times, so here comes Wes Lee! And Wes says, “Nope. Nope nope nope. I can’t listen to this anymore. For the sake of everyone, Pretty Deadly, SHUT UP!” Fans cheer but Pretty Deadly laughs that off. Wes says he appreciates Bron’s words. Appreciate? Well y’know who Kit doesn’t appreciate? WES! This is about Pretty Deadly! Let’s get back to Pretty Deadly. Bron says maybe Kit & Elton should “quit bitchin’,” and maybe if they weren’t in the back for three hours brushing their hair, maybe they would’ve been out here first.

Wes wants things to slow down. They must give Pretty Deadly credit, because they do have beautiful hair. Bron and Wes step up to Pretty Deadly, give the manes a touch, and Bron admits, that is good hair. Like angel hair. Wes is right, Bron does take things too far sometimes. So he’ll take a step back, and let Pretty Deadly have the spotlight. Wes says that’s growth right there. Kit says wow, thank you, Bronson. That’s lovely. Wes says he’ll give them an introduction! Elton is so excited! Wes says, “Please welcome to the ring, two of the tastiest snacks of NXT… Your NXT Tag Team Champions~! Pretty! Deadly~!”

Fans boo as Pretty Deadly point to each other. Elton thanks Bron & Wes for that. Now, everything is finally in order. Time for a #SIDEPLATECHECK! USH USH USH! Bron tells Pretty Deadly to hold on. If they are going to start the show, it’s bound that someone comes out to interrupt you. Wes says that’s true, there’s a pattern to how things go. Pretty Deadly starts talking, and someone comes up to interrupts. It’s usually… Someone wanting the titles! Well then who’d be coming for the titles? We wait, and Wes reveals, it’s him and Bron! See, Wes really misses the tag titles, and “Bron-Bron’s” never held them!

Fans already chant “Wes Lee Two Belts!” as Bron says that’s very true. Because Pretty Deadly claim to be the best, then they should put the titles on the line against Bron & Wes, TONIGHT! Elton changes his mind, he knew he NEVER liked Wes! Kit says, “You think you’re going to embarrass us? Well tonight, Pretty Deadly have the last laugh.” Bron says, “We’ll see who’s smiling when Wes and I are holding up our NEW Tag Team Championships!” Elton says opening the show sucks, tonight can’t get any worse! Wait! Here comes R-Truth! Fans cheer and say, “What’s Up?!”

Truth high-fives with Bron and breaks it down with Wes, but Truth has his own match! Will the 21st Century Success Story see just what’s up when he faces the Truth?

Grayson Waller VS R-Truth!

NXT returns as Waller makes his entrance and fans boo. The bell rings and fans are already telling Waller what they think of him. Waller says Truth needs to learn that this is WALLER’s house! He runs this! Truth slaps Waller! Waller kicks low, CLUBS Truth, CLUBS him more and more, then throws knees against the ropes. Waller CHOKES Truth, lets off at 4, fans actually duel, and Waller whips. Truth holds ropes to stop himself, then he elbows Waller away. Truth CLOBBERS Waller, fans fire up, and Truth says, “What’s Up?” “WHAT’S UP!” But Waller JABS Truth! Waller says THAT’S what’s up! Fans boo again but Truth ducks the haymaker to hit an atomic drop!

Truth pops Waller for an atomic drop, then he hits a headlock takeover. Waller keeps his shoulders up, fights up, and he stomps Truth’s foot. Waller is free and he headlocks back, but Truth powers out. Waller runs Truth over, he mocks John Cena, and then he runs, but Truth trips Waller up! Truth hits a headlock takeover! Waller keeps his shoulder up, fans rally, and Waller fights up. Waller throws body shots, whips Truth away, but Truth runs Waller over! Fans fire up as Truth swivels then runs, but Waller ducks and hurdles. Truth ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! And then hip toss! Fans fire up as Waller gets to ropes.

“What’s up?” “WHAT’S UP!” But Truth runs into an STO! Fans boo as Waller smirks and goes to the corner. Waller goes up and out on the ropes, but Truth rolls away. Fans duel, Waller goes out and around the way, but Truth rolls the other way! Waller is annoyed but fans cheer, and Waller gets in, to get an UPPERCUT from Truth! Waller tumbles out of the ring, and Truth gets an idea. Truth does the splits, builds speed, and FLIES but clips the ropes! Truth hits the floor hard, only clipping Waller, and the ref hurries to check Truth. Both men are down while NXT goes picture in picture.

Waller checks his chin and gets away to the ring, but the ref is helping Truth up. The ref tells Waller to hold on while he checks with Truth, and Waller talks smack on the 54 time 24/7 Champion. “What Truth? What Truth?” Waller does push-ups to rub it in as medics check Truth. Waller turns up the heat as he talks trash to the fans, and Truth sits in the ring. It’s hard to say what he hurt but it seems Truth needs a bit more help. Waller again rubs it in by doing handsprings, handstands and jumping jacks. Waller even gets on the announce desk to rile the fans up. Waller starts mocking Booker T! SPINAROONI!!

NXT returns to single picture, and fans boo Waller while Truth is helped away. It seems this one has been called!

Winner: Grayson Waller, by referee stoppage

Fans boo as Waller shouts, “I’m not surprised! It doesn’t matter who it is! Whether it’s NXT, Raw, SmackDown, Grayson Waller is the most dominant superstar in this company, lad! And I am sick and tired of people sleeping on me. I just beat a 20 year vet in R-Truth, and I did that on my own!” Fans chant, “You Got Lucky!” and Waller says, “Yeah, I get lucky every night! NXT is Grayson Waller’s house, and ain’t nobody gonna change that.” Waller is cocky, lucky, and never going to stop. But will someone come along and show him this is far from his house?

 

Vic Joseph interviews The Schism.

He welcomes fans to a “very unique sit-down with Schism. Joe Gacy, Rip Fowler, Jagger Reed, and of course, Ava Raine.” Ava has been the talk of social media because no one thought it was her under that mask and red hood. Vic’s known her since she first stepped foot in the Performance Center, and there are others who have known her even longer. All of us have the same question: Why the Schism, and why now? Ava says “Nobody knew that it was me. Everyone thought they knew everything, and I showed them they know nothing. I’ve been around WWE my entire life. And nobody ever took the time to get to know me.

“Until I met Joe, Rip and Jagger. They were the only people who took the time to get to know me.” When she first arrived at the WWE PC, she suffered a devastating injury that required surgery. Do you know who texted her and called? Who checked on her? The “new guy,” Joe Gacy. Ava didn’t hear anything from anyone who claims to have known her for all those years. Vic didn’t mean it like that. Then how does he mean it? Because Vic didn’t ask Rip or Jagger why they joined Gacy, he only asked her. So why should she sit here and answer questions when Vic’s not even listening? He’s only making assumptions, just like everyone else.

Then Vic has a question for the group, starting with Gacy. Gacy must be loving the new spotlight The Schism has since the debut of Ava Raine. Gacy says Vic is “completely missing the point.” Ava isn’t here because she does something for them. “People have been asking her for things her entire life. Everyone asking for things that they don’t deserve. Asking her for things that they didn’t earn. Ava is here because we accept her for who she truly is, and that’s why she chose The Schism.”

Rip says there are more eyes on them than ever before, and there is heightened ridicule from the NXT locker room and the greater community. “They compare us to other groups past and present, but those other groups could never dream of achieving the togetherness that we have in The Schism. In fact, Vic, we would like to offer you one of our pins.” Jagger says, “The lack of acceptance is why we are who we are. When you take your mask off and reveal your true self, it’s too harsh for people, yet it is welcomed within The Schism. And we are not responsible for your unfavorable reactions.”

Vic says he’s sorry to see the picture a little clearer, but he does have one more question. It’s based off a tweet from Cameron Grimes: “It’s sad to see Schism has brainwashed Ava Raine.” What is their response to that, given they put Grimes behind them? Ava says no one brainwashed her, how dare you! She saw what Grimes could never see, and that is that together, The Schism can do so much more than she ever could alone. And how is it that Grimes is behind them? He didn’t beat them, he paid two guys to win for him. “You don’t get to reject The Schism and just walk away. We are committed to making an example out of Cameron Grimes, and we are going to follow through on that commitment next week, when Cameron Grimes faces Joe Gacy for the final time.”

Gacy says, “The Schism is strong together because they are four roots,” and the group says, “One tree.” Will Mr. Inclusion finally cross off Grimes in this final showdown? Or will Grimes be the one leaving The Schism behind as he goes #ToTheMoon?

 

Javier Bernal speaks to someone outside HBK’s office.

He knows these guys left it all in the ring last week, and they came so close. Don’t get him wrong, they’re great athletes and all, but they’re not championship material. Malik Blade & Edris Enofe are naturally offended by that, but Javi wants them to take it easy. Not everyone can be Big Body Javi. “But here’s some big body advice: don’t waste a meeting with Mr. Michaels. He’ll only tell you the same things that I told you.” They’re better off just watching Javi tonight. Wait, he has a match on NXT tonight? Yep! He texted good ol’ HBK and requested one. In fact, that’s why he’s here, HBK texted him to meet here to learn who he’s facing.

Malik & Edris are laughing, because out walks Odyssey Jones! Odyssey thanks HBK and says he won’t let the boss down. And then he sees Javi! Tonight, Big Body Javi goes 1v1 with “Big Body O.” See you out there, little man. Javi is already feeling the pain, will he be taking the L in Odyssey’s return to action?

 

Zoey Stark storms into the women’s locker room.

While Indi Hartwell, Tatum Paxley and others are chatting, Nikkita Lyons is trying to calm Zoey Stark down. Stark drops her bags too close to Indi’s and Indi gets upset. What’s Stark’s problem? What? They know Stark’s problem, she and Lyons lost in the tag title match last week! Yeah, the whole world saw that. Indi got dropped by Elektra Lopez, but you don’t see her all pouty. So get over it! Be grateful you’re even getting another championship match again next week. Some aren’t so lucky. When was the last time Indi was handed a title match, huh? Well, maybe that’s because Indi doesn’t deserve one.

Oh, is that so? Yeah, actually, because the last time Stark checked, title matches aren’t handed out, they’re earned! Oh, earned, right. Well Stark is gonna earn a boot in the face. Then maybe Indi’s gonna earn a knee to the jaw! Oh, then let’s do that right now! Lyons and the rest of the locker room keep these two apart, but will Stark and Indi look to follow through on all that talk later tonight?

 

Andre Chase gives Thea Hail a pep talk at gorilla.

He wants Thea to be hydrated and with her head in the game. Thea wanted it, she’s got it! The rematch with Kiana James! Thea fires up and Chase asks her how she feels! “Mr. Chase… Something just doesn’t feel right.” The Chase U banner remains untouched without Bodhi… Who’s gonna carry the flag now? BAM! DUKE HUDSON busts through a paper wall! DUKE will carry the flag! “LET’S GOOOO~! CHASE U! CHASE U!” Chase says Duke’s got the right idea! Let’s go! Thea hurries after Chase and Duke, is this going to be the start of comeback season?

Thea Hail w/ Chase U VS Kiana James!

Chase U’s star recruit may have failed the first time, but she promises not to let Professor Andre down! Will Thea’s studying and hard work pay off in the rematch? Or will the Calculator’s plans continue to go accordingly?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally, Kiana and Thea tie up, and Kiana KNEES Thea low! Kiana clamps onto an arm and CLUBS away on it! Kiana SLAMS the arm on the ropes, then ROCKS Thea with a right! Kiana talks trash, wrenches and WRINGS the bad arm, then RAMS Thea into the buckles. Fans rally for Thea and Thea kicks back! Thea fires off forearms but Kiana KNEES low again. Kiana steps over and JAMS the arm, then stomps Thea down. Cover, TWO! Fans rally but Kiana clamps onto Thea with a seated abdominal stretch. Fans rally as Thea endures, Thea fights, but Kiana cranks on the top wristlock.

Thea fights up, bridges, but Kiana wrangles her back down! Fans continue to rally, Duke waves that banner as hard as he can, but Kiana drops knees on the bad arm! And more knees! Kiana taunts Thea, throws her down then stomps her down! Kiana throws Thea by her hair again and the ref reprimands. Fans boo, Kiana clamps onto Thea again, and Kiana gets the top wristlock back. Fans rally, Thea endures and fights up, and Thea arm-drags free! Kiana staggers to a corner, Thea runs in and blocks a boot to bring Kiana out, for a short arm LARIAT! And an elbow! And another elbow! Fans fire up and Thea runs in to SPLASH!

Thea rolls back, runs in again, and SPLASHES again! Thea dropkicks legs out, runs, and hits the ROLLING NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up with Thea and she goes up the corner! Thea roars, leaps, and CROSSBODIES! But Kiana rolls through and picks Thea up! But Thea cradle counters, TWO!! Kiana escapes, kicks Thea down, then brings her around to throw by her hair again! Kiana runs, to SLING-SHOT! Cover, Duke helps the ropebreak! The ref and Chase both reprimand Duke, “We don’t cheat around here!” Chase tells Duke to go to the back! Duke snarls but he accepts Chase’s orders.

But Kiana CLOBBERS Thea and CHOKES her! Thea flounders, Kia runs in, SLING-SHOT again! Cover, Kiana wins!!

Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall

And with that slingblade complete shot combo, the 401K, Kiana DOES go 2-0 against Thea! Duke was just trying to help, but will everyone learn from this #TeachableMoment?

Chase helps Thea up, but CHARLIE DEMPSEY attacks! Dempsey puts on a SLEEPER!! Chase is red, but Duke rushes in! Duke chases of Dempsey, then Duke helps Chase to his feet. And he even offers Thea a hand. Thea takes it, fans cheer, and perhaps Chase U will be stronger than ever now.

 

Backstage interview with Fallon Henley, Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs.

McKenzie Mitchell is with the country trio and wants their take on tonight’s tag title main event. Briggs says they’re pulling for Wes & Bron to win, but if they can’t, Pretty Deadly won’t be able to run from Briggs & Jensen much longer. Jensen says those two pretty boys will fall to some country men! Fallon says that’s right! Pretty Deadly’s time is running out. But then in walks Kiana James’ assistant, Giana, to hand Fallon a document. Briggs scolds Jensen for not having his eyes up a little higher on Giana, but Fallon reads the document. Look at this! Oh no…! What moves is Kiana making outside of the ring?

 

Wes and Bron talk backstage.

Bron congratulates Wes on the big North American Championship win. That was a huge accomplishment. Wes thanks Bron for that, and thanks Bron for stepping up, because going after the tag titles is going to be tough. But it might be tougher trying to hold both belts on their shoulders! Bron likes the sound of that, but then in walks Robert Stone. “There’s the gentlemen I’m looking for! The unbeatable, the unstoppable Bron Breakker. Now, a guy who is so unstoppable, he cares more about winning the NXT tag titles than defending his own.” Bron says Stone has five seconds to get to the point.

Stone says the point is that Bron knows in his heart that he could take on anyone in NXT, except for one guy. That guy is bigger than Bron, stronger than Bron, and that guy is Von Wagner. Bron laughs again. Stone says Bron can enjoy doubling up on championships tonight, because when Bron does, Von will happily take the NXT Championship off him. Bron says that’s fine with him. But tell Von that next time, Von should just come after Bron himself instead of sending his errand boy. Now Stone needs to get outta there before Bron puts his head through a locker. Stone laughs that off, then frowns as he leaves.

Wes says, “See you, Mr. Stone.” But will the Big Booty Nephew soon find himself living in Wagner’s World?

 

Odyssey Jones VS Javier Bernal!

#SoundTheAlarm, look who is back in action! NXT starts on The Odyssey once again, will Jones start where he left off? Or will Big Body Javi find a way to be a big body buzzkill?

NXT returns and Javi makes his entrance. The bell rings and Jones circles with Javi. Fans rally for Odyssey as the two approach. Javi gets around, waistlocks Jones, but Jones CLUBS him right down! Jones knuckle locks Javi and that alone hurts Javi! Javi reaches for ropes but Jones reels him in for a shoulder! Jones scoops with one arm, and SLAMS Javi! Fans fire up and Jones is all smiles, but Javi gets up to CHOP him! Jones glares at Javi, and he TOSSES Javi to a corner! Jones CLUBS Javi, Javi stumbles and flounders, and fans rally up. Jones short arm LARIATS Javi, and he then rolls all over Javi! And again!

Fans rally, Jones runs and hits one more roll on Javi! Javi gets to a corner, Jones storms over but Javi slips away. Jones’ leg bothers him and Javi CLUBS Jones on the back! And again! And again! Javi climbs up, he rains down punches on Jones, but Jones uses that to Electric Chair Lift! Javi slips off, he dropkicks the leg and Jones staggers! Javi CHOP BLOCKS and Jones goes down! Fans boo as Javi DDTs the leg! And drops an elbow! And another elbow! And another! Fans boo but Javi steps through to have a standing toehold. But Jones BOOTS Javi all the way out of the ring! Javi runs back in to clamp on a chinlock!

Fans rally as Jones endures and fights up! Jones RAMS Javi back into buckles! Javi just jumps back on! Jones RAMS Javi into more buckles, but Javi clamps on with a headlock. Jones picks up and TOSSES Javi away! Javi staggers up, into a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Jones roars, whips, and swings, but Javi ducks! Only to return and get run over! Fans fire up with Jones and he runs in at Javi to back body block! Javi staggers into a SWINGING SIDE SLAM! Cover, Jones wins!

Winner: Odyssey Jones, by pinfall

#SoundTheAlarm, Jones’ return is victorious! Will Javi take a form of his own advice and not waste time asking HBK for things? Will Jones’ odyssey finally lead to some gold?

 

Toxic Attraction heads to the ring.

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne flank the Toxic Goddess, Mandy Rose, as she is still NXT Women’s Champion after Halloween Havoc. And not only that, she has been champion for over ONE FULL YEAR! As such, the Toxic Lounge is now in the ring for this Toxic Anniversary Celebration. Mandy, Gigi & Jacy strut into the ring, title raised, and pictures of Mandy’s best victories on display. Jacy says, “Bow in the presence of greatness! One year. One year of proving everybody wrong. 365 DAYS of being the Baddest Bitch in the Game! 365 days of being the most dominant champion in NXT history.”

Gigi says, “Mandy Rose is absolutely untouchable. But you all underestimated her, you mocked her, you didn’t believe in her. But she has proven time and time again that she is superior to every person in that locker room, man or woman.” Jacy says Mandy is “the absolutely measuring stick of the NXT Women’s Division. You fought legends, underdogs, unified the NXT Women’s Championships, and helped make Toxic Attraction the most decorated female faction in NXT history. And in honor of all of your greatness, we put together a little video package just for you, champ! Roll it!”

And yes, we get a video package. From the Golden Goddess to Otis’ Precious Peach to her toxic return to NXT, to taking the NXT Women’s Championship from Raquel Rodriguez last year at Halloween Havoc 2021. Though, what’s clearly left on the cutting room floor is all the times Gigi & Jacy had a part to play in Mandy’s victories. But the bottom line is, Mandy wants you to “put some damn respect on my name!” Mandy thanks Gigi & Jacy for that, and wow. “All that? Not bad for a piece of eye candy, huh? Because that’s all I was to you people for four years. I was a peach, a Barbie doll, a bottled blonde made in a lab, a centerfold bitch.

“That’s why two years ago, I realized I needed to bet on myself. And I made the choice to come here and rebuild myself. And it was the greatest decision I have ever made in my entire life. And with the help of my girls, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne, Toxic Attraction has risen to the top. Numbers don’t like. Ratings don’t lie. Merchandise sales don’t lie. And you people thought that I couldn’t hold the NXT Women’s Championship. Why? Because this title represents the greatest women wrestlers in the entire world. And I have proven every single one of you, for over a year now.

“And I don’t just say, ‘put some respect on my name’ because it’s a nice catchphrase. No, because it’s the damn truth! I’ve given every single woman in this division a shot at this title, and I have stepped on every single one on my way to the top, while wearing red bottoms and making it look good. And damn, does it feel good to have sat on my rightful throne for over a year now. And I can guarantee that no one will be kicking me out of it. And if anyone has a problem with what I just said, you know where to find me. I work on Tuesdays.” Wait, what is this smoke? Wait! Alba Fyre SUPERKICKS one of the bellboys!

Fyre SMACKS Gigi with the portrait of Mandy! And she whips Jacy over the couch! Mandy says Fyre isn’t going to ruin this for her, but she still runs away. So Fyre SUPERKICKS the other bellboy! And then she drags Gigi up into the Gory Especial! GORY BOMB through the table!! Mandy and Jacy are speechless as Fyre grabs the mic. “Mandy, this week, I take out Gigi Dolin. Next week, I take out Jacy Jayne. And in two week’s time, I’m taking that title!” The Fire Keeper is not done by a long shot, will she make sure Mandy’s toxic reign never makes it to two years?

 

Backstage interview with Apollo Crews.

McKenzie notes that Apollo mentioned last week that he’s listening very closely to what Bron Breakker has had to say, and we all thought he’d be the one making an appearance earlier tonight. Apollo says that Pretty Deadly gets to have their moment in the sun with Bron. But he’ll say this: a 1v1 between Bron and Apollo, THAT is what the NXT fans want to see! That is what Apollo wants, but Apollo isn’t sure if that’s what Bron wants. Really? Why’s that? The answer is simple: Apollo is a match-up problem for anyone, including Bron! The moment Apollo came back to NXT, he looked Bron square in his eyes and told him what he was coming after.

Since then, Bron hasn’t said Apollo’s name one time! Apollo gets it, Bron is the champion and everyone chases him. “But Bron Breakker being the fighting champion that he is, I didn’t expect to put on my running shoes.” Von Wagner laughs at that one. Von tells Apollo, “You’re kind of a funny dude, do you know that? You’re a match-up problem? I’m a straight up problem, period. Don’t chase your time chasing after Bron, I know you like to look into the future. But when it comes to that title, I am the future!” Von heads out, but Apollo doesn’t take that seriously. Who will have the last laugh when it comes to the NXT Championship chase?

 

There’s another call to the Performance Center.

After the automated message, they speak. “You can screen my calls, but you cannot screen my fury. One by one, you all shall fall, so just let it happen, as it is written on the walls.” We also see video of someone spray painting the outside of the building! Is that SCRYPTS themselves?! “Coming to NXT almost feels like home. Because inside those ropes, the canvas will be the place how I express how I feel in my bones. I will leave my mark, and I warn you all on my imminent start. Sincerely, SCRYPTS.” The camera is then sprayed out in red! Will all of NXT be seeing red when SCRYPTS reveals themselves?

 

Zoey Stark w/ Nikkita Lyons VS Indi Hartwell!

Tensions are running high in the NXT Women’s Division given how toxic things have been lately. Alongside Lyons, Stark will get a rematch for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships to clear the controversy, but will there be any controversy with how this one goes down?

The bell rings, the two tie up and go around. Stark puts Indi on the ropes but Indi turns it around to put Stark on the ropes. The ref calls the ropebreak, Indi lets off, and the two tie up again as fans duel. Indi headlocks, Stark powers out, but Indi runs Stark over! Stark kips right up and she shoves Indi. Indi and Stark tie up again, Stark headlocks but Indi powers out. Things speed up, Indi dodges Stark and runs her over again! Stark hurries up but Indi wrenches Stark to an ELBOW BREAKER! Indi wrenches again, RAMS shoulders, then RAMS them again. And again! Indi whips Stark to a corner, runs in, but Stark elbows her away.

Stark puts Indi in the corner, RAMS into her, and again, then CHOPS! Fans “WOO~” for that one, and Stark stands Indi up for another CHOP! “WOO~!” Stark whips Indi corner to corner. Indi reverses but Stark goes up and over and keeps moving. Stark ducks, springboards and CROSSBODIES! Cover, ONE, but Stark clamps right on with a chinlock! Stark thrashes Indi around, Indi fights up and fans rally. Stark wrenches, whips Indi to a corner, then brings her around to whip her back in! Stark brings Indi around a third time for another whip, then she wrenches the arm to an ELBOW BREAKER!

Fans rally, Stark wrenches again and snapmares Indi down. Stark runs but Indi avoids the sliding lariat! Indi blocks a kick, spins Stark and scoop SLAMS her! And then scoop SLAMS again! Stark stagger sup, Indi clotheslines Stark up and out! Stark is furious but Lyons tells her to cool off. Stark huffs and puffs and paces around while NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and fans rally as Stark has Indi in another chinlock. Indi endures, fights up, but Stark leans on the hold. Indi throws body shots but Stark ROCKS her! Indi ROCKS Stark, Stark ROCKS Indi, repeat! Indi kicks then KNEES then DECKS Stark! Stark goes to the apron, Indi storms over and brings Stark up to UPPERCUT and BOOT! Stack cover, TWO! Stark is still in this and Indi grows a bit frustrated but fans continue to rally. Indi drags Starks up, suplexes, but Stark blocks! Stark wrenches out and LARIATS Indi! Storm ROCKS, ELBOWS, mule kicks and then runs, SLIDING KNEE! Cover, TWO!

Indi is still in this and Stark grows frustrated. Indi gets to a corner, Stark runs in as fans duel, and Stark ELBOWS Indi! Stark runs and comes back but is put on the apron. Indi swings but Stark blocks to bump Indi off buckles! Stark sweeps the legs, jumps up and SPRINGBOARD TWISTERS! Cover, TWO!! Indi survives the #StarkSpecial and Stark is shocked! Stark then gets mad again and stomps a mudhole into Indi! The ref counts, Lyons tries to tell Stark to calm down, and Stark lets off at 4, to just start a new mudhole stomp! Lyons gets through to Stark and she cools off, to then drag Indi up and scoop. Z 3- NO, Indi CLUBS Stark!

Indi short arm LARIATS! And short arm LARIATS again! And again! Stark staggers up, Indi runs in but Stark dodges the boot to SUPERKICK! Stark drags Indi back up, TOSSES her out hard, and then storms out after her. Lyons stays back as Stark dribbles Indi off the announce desk! The ring count is climbing as Lyons tries to talk sense into Stark. But Stark clears off the desk! Fans sing, “OH~ Zoey is angry~!” as she drags Indi up and reels her in! Lyons tells Stark this isn’t going to win it! She can do this in the ring! Stark listens and puts Indi in at 7 of 10. Stark slides in at 8, but Indi BOOTS her down!

Indi hurries to BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Cover, INDI WINS!!

Winner: Indi Hartwell, by pinfall

Lyons said Stark could win in the ring, but she just LOST in the ring! Did Stark make a mistake cooling off? Or was it a mistake to be so fired up from the start? As for Indi, did she just earn her own opportunity at a title?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Crown Jewel!

After the huge victory for Alexa Bliss & Asuka just last night on Raw, they’re already defending the belts in a rematch against Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky this Saturday! With Bayley also going for the Raw Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair, will Damage Control soon have total control of the Raw Women’s Division? Or will #TwistedMist and the EST thwart them completely?

 

Someone records a message.

“My eyes are no longer shielded. My business is unfinished. A new order of high justice is upon NXT. It’s not about anger or frustration. It’s about authority. MY authority.” Will this mystery man’s return to NXT bring about a new order in the food chain?

 

Valentina Feroz talks with Sanga backstage.

She doesn’t understand what is going on with him, or what is wrong. But she wants Sanga to be in his corner tonight. Sanga says Valentina is very, very strong. But he is very, very sorry. Veer Mahaan walks in, and Sanga says he cannot go with Feroz. She says she understands, and she leaves. Will Feroz be alright without her support system? Also Wendy Choo is in the background, is she waking back up after being away? As for Veer, he goes to Sanga to say that here, they are taking his kindness for weakness. Do they honor Sanga? Sanga’s silence is answer enough for Veer. “That’s why I’m here.” Veer & Sanga head out, will Indus Sher make NXT honor them?

 

Stark & Lyons regroup backstage.

Lyons wants Stark to talk to her, and Stark says she lost! Okay, just relax. Stark takes a breath and says she is just in her own head. She is sorry, but she promises that next time, she’ll have her head in the game. Lyons says it is all good and she has Stark’s back. But then KC Squared walk in. Kayden Carter says, “Look who has no momentum going into our rematch.” Katana Chance says Stark will have to do better than that if she wants the titles. But they beat you two before! But it doesn’t count! And Stark & Lyons won’t win next week. The champs head out, Stark is starting to get riled up again, but Lyons holds her back. Breathe, and be ready next week. Will the be ready next week for the title rematch?

 

Cora Jade VS Valentina Feroz!

The Generation of Jade may have lost in a wild match at Halloween Havoc, but she’s already moving on. Will she add on to Valentina’s downcast spirits? Or will Sanga be right in that Feroz’s great strength will carry her through?

NXT returns as Feroz makes her entrance. She does not look ready, but she fires herself up as best as she can without Yulisa Leon or Sanga by her side. The bell rings and Cora taunts Feroz. “Who are you, anyways?” Cora shoves Feroz, and questions if Feroz should even be here. Cora pie faces Feroz and says Feroz doesn’t deserve to be in the same ring as her. Feroz fires up and ties up with Cora to push her to ropes! The ref counts, Cora freaks out, and Feroz lets off at 4. Cora shoves Feroz down! Cora laughs at Feroz, but then Feroz arm-drags Cora! And again! Feroz wheelbarrows, victory rolls, then runs to DOUBLE KNEE!

Fans fire up with Feroz and she basement dropkicks Cora out of the ring! Feroz pursues, ROCKS Cora with forearms, then bumps Cora off the apron! Fans rally and duel, but Cora dropkicks Feroz back out! Cora taunts, “Aw, poor Valentina!” Cora then smacks Feroz off the apron, “This is your jungle, huh? Not today!” Cora puts Feroz in the ring, BOOTS her down, then stomps her around. Cover, TWO! Cora is annoyed but she drags Feroz up. Feroz throws hands but Cora CLUBS her down! Cora dares fans to cheer for Feroz now! Cora smacks Feroz off the mat, tells her she’s nothing, but Feroz throws body shots!

Cora CLUBS Feroz, talks more trash, then ROCKS Feroz with a forearm. And another! Fans boo Cora but she just whips Feroz around to throw her into ropes. Cora runs side to side to BACK ELBOW! Feroz writhes but Cora pushes her to a cover, TWO! Feroz grits her teeth but Cora stomps her around. Cora drags Feroz up, throws her into ropes again and CHOKES her! The ref counts, Cora lets off at 4, and fans rally for Feroz. Cora drags Feroz up and fans rally for “VALENTINA!” but Cora whips her to ropes again. Cora runs, but Feroz dodges! Cora hits ropes, then Feroz cradles! TWO!! Feroz hurries up but Cora LARIATS her down!

Cora scowls and stalks Feroz to a corner. Cora stands Feroz up, whips her corner to corner, runs in but Feroz BOOTS her away! And again! Feroz goes up, leaps, but Cora avoids the crossbody! Feroz crash lands, Cora runs in to SENTON! Cora drags Feroz up, for the DDT! Cover, Cora wins!

Winner: Cora Jade, by pinfall

Feroz showed her strength but she just couldn’t bring out that ferocity! Cora rebounds from losing to Roxanne Perez, will Cora find her way to a title match first?

Wait, Cora threatens Feroz with her kendo stick. But here comes WENDY CHOO! Wendy slide sin, but Cora SMACKS her with the stick! Cora dares Wendy to get up, but Wendy fires back with forearms, and a POLISH HAMMER! Wendy gets the kendo stick! Cora stands, but she runs away! Wendy swings wild, will the Generation of Jade have a new problem to deal with?

 

Tony D’Angelo talks with Channing Lorenzo backstage.

The Don asks Stacks “took care of that thing,” and Stacks says it’s all done. Good, good. Stacks, Tony appreciates you “persuading” the vendor to push more Tony D merch. Stacks says The Don’s shirts are now front and center on the stand like they should be. That’s right! Tony loves it! Like watching his son taking his first steps. But back to business. What’s next is Stacks VS Hank Walker next week. Oh that’s easy money! Stacks will definitely take care of him. Tony knows Stacks will. But oh! Look who it is! Elektra Lopez walks in! Has she finally decided to do things on her own? Damn right! And it feels good being her own boss. Tony knows a little something about that.

Well if Tony thinks Lopez was dangerous before, oh just watch how dangerous she is now. Stacks can’t believe this. Lopez? Dangerous on her own? Tony says he does believe that. Will La Mardina prove she is THE boss of NXT?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: Pretty Deadly VS Bron Breakker & Wes Lee!

What a golden main event this is! Kit & Elton managed to beat Malik & Edris, while the Big Booty Nephew defeated JD McDonagh and Ilja Dragunov, and the Must-See Kid overcome four other men in a ladder match! But now, Bron & Wes are both looking to be double champions! Will they pull it off against the team that unified the NXT and NXT UK Tag titles? Or will the #SIDEPLATECHECK still show the two tasty dishes run the tag division?

NXT returns and Pretty Deadly make their entrance. The introductions are made, the tag titles are raised, and we see if NXT goes on a Two Man Power Trip!

The teams sort out and Kit starts with Wes. They circle, tie up, and Kit wrenches to wristlock and standing armlock. Wes endures, fights up, slips through, wrenches and wristlocks, but Kit wrenches right back. Kit has the wristlock, Wes rolls, rolls, and slips through again to wrench to a hard wristlock! Kit endures but Wes wrangles him down. Kit rolls, slips around, but Wes headlocks. Kit throws body shots, powers out, but Wes sunset flips! Kit flails stays up but not for long! TWO! Kit rushes in, but into a schoolboy! TWO, and Kit swipes at the legs but Wes backflips away! Fans fire up as Kit throws a fit!

Elton calms Kit down, they talk strategy, and then Kit tags Elton. Elton talks with Kit some more, but then rushes Wes! Wes arm-drags Elton away! Wes hooks the arm in a cording hold but Elton fights up. Elton reels back to punch but Wes cranks the hold. Elton tries again, but again Wes cranks the hold! They go around, Wes ducks the haymaker to wrench the arm and tag in Bron. Bron & Wes double whip, Wes drop toeholds and Bron STANDING MOONSAULTS! Fans fire up as Bron dares Kit to do something. But Elton slides under and SLAPS Bron! Bron dusts that off while Elton taunts him with Scott Hall fingers.

Bron scowls at Elton, Elton runs to a corner and goes up and over! Elton kicks low, CLUBS away, runs, but into a back drop! Bron whips, Elton reverses, Bron ducks ‘n’ dodges and CLOBBERS Elton! Fans fire up while Elton sits up in a daze! Bron drags Elton up, tags Wes, and the singles champs mug Elton. Wes wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER, but Elton throws hard body shots! Wes counter punches, whips, but Elton reverses to FLAPJACK Wes! Wes sputters and Elton snarls as he drags Wes up. Tag to Kit, Pretty Deadly double suplex, but Bron saves Wes from that! Bron and Wes ROCK Pretty Deadly, then DOUBLE RANA!!

Pretty Deadly bail out, get back up, but Wes & Bron DECK them! Fans fire up as Bron barks it up and NXT goes picture in picture.

Wes and Bron dare Pretty Deadly to come back but Kit & Elton regroup and cool off. Pretty Deadly flank the ring, Kit slides in, but Wes dodges to waistlock. Kit wrenches out, ROCKS Wes, then brings him around to wrench again. Tag to Elton, Pretty Deadly mugs Wes, and Elton wrenches to a wristlock. Elton YANKS the arm, steps over and JAMS the arm. Wes crawls to a corner, Elton stalks him and clamps on a chinlock, but Wes fights up. Elton ROCKS him in the back with a forearm, puts him in a corner, then whips corner to corner. Wes goes up and over, arm-drags Elton down and has the armlock!

Elton flails and fights around but Wes keeps on the cording hold. Elton fights up, Bron tags in, and the singles champs double whip Elton to double elbow him down! Wes STANDING SHOOTING STARS! Bron covers, TWO! Bron keeps on Elton with an armlock of his own, then wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Tag to Wes, they hand-off the wrench, and Wes back suplexes! Cover, TWO! Elton gets away from the deep leg hook, but Wes has him in the corner. Wes hits a headlock takeover and NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally, Elton fights up, and Elton pulls hair! The ref reprimands, Elton sends Wes to a corner and runs in!

Wes slips to the outside, Elton hits off buckles, and Wes slingshots to RANA! Fans fire up and Wes victory rolls to cover, TWO! Elton hurries up but WEs ducks ‘n’ dodges, and FLAPJACK DROPKICKS! Fans fire up more as Wes brings Elton around to waistlock. Elton switches, O’Conner Rolls, TWO! Kit tags in as Elton tumbles out, but Wes WRECKS Elton with a dropkick! Only for Kit to CLOBBER Wes from behind! Kit drags Wes up, scoops and SNAKE EYES off the apron! Kit puts Wes in hard, covers, TWO! Kit EuroUppers again and again and again, then again! it runs to CLOBBER Wes with an uppercut!

Fans boo but Kit mocks Bron with barking. Kit drags Wes up, EuroUppers again and Wes wobbles. Kit brings Wes around to ROCK with a haymaker, and Wes drops to a knee. Kit turns Wes, mocks Bron, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Wes is still in this, fans rally up, but Kit drags him up again. Kit swings but Wes ROCKS him first! Kit ROCKS Wes, Wes ROCKS Kit, repeat! Kit RAMS Wes into the corner, Elton tags in, and Wes CLUBS Kit but Elton CLOBBERS Wes with an uppercut! And another uppercut! Elton stomps away at the ropes but the ref counts. Elton lets off, drags Wes up, and fans rally up even more.

Elton stands Wes up but WEs gets around to waistlock! Elton switches, scoops and SLAMS Wes! And elbow drops! And again, but Wes dodges that one! Tag to Kit, but Wes dodges him! And dodges Elton! Pretty Deadly realize Wes got past both of them, they hurry inside, HOT TAG TO BRON! Bron rallies on Pretty Deadly with haymakers and shoulders! Bron ducks ‘n’ dodges Kit to then SPINEBUSTER! Bron clotheslines Elton in a corner, hops up and hits the FLYING BULLDOG! Fans fire up as the straps come down! Bron roars, he brings both Kit & Elton up, to DOUBLE SUPLEX on his own! And kip up!

Bron is all fired up, the fans are barking, and Bron tags Wes. Wes goes up, Bron gives him the ROCKET LAUNCHER into Pretty Deadly! Elton flounders out, Kit flounders up, into a SUPERKICK! Wes goes to the corner but Bron intercepts Elton! Bron TOSSES Elton back in! And then Bron clotheslines Elton out the other side! But wait, CARMELO HAYES shoves Wes off the top!! The ref didn’t see it, yelling at Bron and Elton! Kit rolls Wes up, Pretty Deadly wins!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall (still NXT Tag Team Champions)

Melo gets an assist, but Wes is furious! Wes FLIES and wipes out Melo! Wes fires off hands on Melo for screwing him over again in his career! Bron isn’t sure what to make of that, but then he turns around into a BOOT from Von!! Fans boo as Von stands over Bron, declaring he will be the next NXT Champion. But we see Apollo watching this backstage. And so is JD McDonagh! The Irish Ace tells Apollo, “That vision you have of being the man around here? It’s going to be pretty tough to have with a detached retina. See you around.” Is Apollo seeing the future of NXT on screen like the rest of us? Or will he change the future with his own two hands?


My Thoughts:

A great episode here to set up quite a lot, especially with NXT Deadline being the next special on the schedule. First, NXT celebrates Mandy Rose passing 365 days a week shy, but they couldn’t do anything on the Wednesday where she actually did hit 365. And all things considered, Mandy did succeed in reinventing herself by going from being a bit player midcard Heel (or even Face when she was with Otis) to being a faction leader and top Heel. And Fyre coming out for payback was fair, as no other Face is quite ready yet. Roxanne Perez is still on a good slow burn push, and anyone else is in some other story. But I have a feeling Mandy beats Fyre again, because why would Fyre dethrone Mandy on free TV instead of a special like Halloween Havoc or even Deadline?

Speaking of those other Faces, Stark getting in it with Indi was a good play for both their stories. Indi gets a good win off a distracted and irate Stark, and then Stark & Lyons have a good interaction with KC Squared backstage. With how cocky KC Squared are, I feel like they’re legitimately going to lose this time. And if not, then who knows, we might see Stark and/or Lyons go after Mandy for Deadline. I feel like it’d be better served if this is the time Lyons & Stark win, sending KC Squared to RawDown, and then Gigi & Jacy can feud with Lyons & Stark again in greater fashion.

Feroz being affected by the Indus Sher reunion story is a good touch, and she had a good match with Cora Jade. Cora wins, of course, but I like that she’s going to be Wendy’s next feud. Maybe Wendy will use Cora as a springboard to facing Mandy, which Wendy should’ve already been doing after beating Tiffany Stratton. I don’t think Wendy will dethrone Mandy, either, but given their history from when Wendy & Roxie were messing with Toxic Attraction, I bet another time around would be a lot of fun. But seriously, where are Blair Davenport and Meiko Satomura? Why not give one of them a proper feud with Mandy?

A low point tonight was Waller VS Truth. It was starting off so well, but Truth tried a tope when I don’t think he’s done that much at all. He didn’t clear the ropes, he had a hard landing, and if he didn’t mess up his knee, he might’ve done something to a rib. Hopefully Truth is okay, this will really hurt his new feud with Baron Corbin. But Waller was surely going to win either way, and he doubles down by talking trash. Second low point would be SCRYPTS’s newest promo. Whoever this is already feels like Retribution fused with Joe Gacy or Bray Wyatt, but in a sad way. Whoever this is better be amazing in the ring or this is going to be a burden on them from the jump.

But speaking of Gacy, we got a really good interview promo with The Schism and Vic Joseph. Simone Johnson is already doing great as Ava Raine, and they set up the natural “final match” between Gacy and Grimes. I have no idea which way that one goes, it feels like there was still something missing in the build. Tony and Stacks have a good interaction with Lopez, I am sure Lopez is going to go on a win streak, but who knows how her story goes. And good interaction between Odyssey, Malik, Edris and Javier before Odyssey gets a good win off Javier. I wonder if Odyssey, Malik & Edris feud with The Schism to circle back around to that story since we didn’t get Malik & Edris joining Grimes against them.

Good stuff from Chase U, but it is a bummer that they let Bodhi go. Maybe it was an in-ring performance thing where he just wasn’t showing improvement to that next level that’d make him a real star. But he was so good as a character, it is a shame he won’t be around. Duke stepping up was great, though, I saw him busting through that paper coming and it was still great. Duke being put in his place by Chase was good, too, but I’m a bit surprised Kiana won again. Dempsey going after Chase was a good reference back to that story, and Duke chasing Dempsey off was good, too. Maybe Dempsey will be Kiana’s ally and we get a mixed tag of Dempsey & Kiana VS Duke & Thea for the fate of Chase U. They’re also bringing Fallon, Briggs & Jensen into this, maybe Kiana is planning to fight Fallon for her bar.

And we got some really good stuff out of all the male champions. The opening segment got a bit clunky in the middle, but I like that Wes wanted to get the tag titles back. We got a great main event, but I had a feeling something would keep Wes & Bron from winning. Melo is the natural first feud for Wes as North American Champion, and there are a lot of names coming after Bron now. Apollo, JD and Von are probably all going to face off to name a #1 contender, and then they will face Bron at Deadline. Maybe, just maybe, that whoever the next challenger is finally dethrones Bron and sends him to RawDown, unless it’s Von. I can’t see Von being NXT Champion but Von was also a big name as NXT 2.0 started. Maybe NXT now still wants Von to be something big, so they might just pull the trigger on Wagner’s World become a reality.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s WWE Raw Results & Report! (3/4/24)

Brutal rematch after brutal rematch!

Published

Drew McIntyre says down with Day One Uce!

Though he’s primed to go after the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Drew McIntyre looks to crush Main Event Jey Uso once and for all!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • GUNTHER VS Dominik Mysterio w/ JD McDonagh; wins.
  • Becky Lynch VS Nia Jax; wins.
  • Drew McIntyre VS Jey Uso; wins.

PLAY BY PLAY

Cody Rhodes is here!

San Antonio fires up for The American Nightmare as he makes his way to the ring. The fans sing along with the song, and “WHOA~ OH~!” get the pyro. Cody steps into the ring, the fans chant his name, and he gets the mic to ask, “So, San Antonio…! What do we wanna talk about? I’d love if we could speak about how at WrestleMania 40, in the main event, with the lights on brightest, the biggest game of the year, I will stand across from the greatest champion in company history, The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.” The fans boo, but Cody says, “However… I am really unable to talk about that because of a… distraction.”

Cody says there’s a distraction that stings quite a bit. He is of course talking about… The Rock. Fans boo more, then chant “ROCKY SUCKS! ROCKY SUCKS!” Cody says last week, The Rock went to Instagram, posted a 16 minute video, then spoke at length on SmackDown. To sum it up, The Rock called the fans in Phoenix meth heads, talked about Cody’s dog, and don’t ever talk bad about Cody’s dog, and then of course, the biggest headline of all, which The Rock made sure wasn’t the headline, The Rock ever so eloquently spun things and changed the conversation.

The Rock presented a whole new challenge like the master politician that he is. No wonder people want him to run for office. Hell, Cody might even end up voting for The Rock. But Cody can’t dismiss those words entirely, because it is true what The Rock said about their conversation. The Rock poured honey into Cody’s ear, telling Cody that the people don’t want Cody VS Roman. The people want Rock VS Roman. Fans boo because that’s wrong, and Cody points out how the fans started chanting something else. The fans respond here with “We Want Cody!” Cody nods and continues by saying that he heard all that, the management all heard it, and Cody appreciates it.

The Rock of course heard all that, because then he called those fans “crybabies.” Are there any crybabies here in San Antonio? The fans fire up! But now, The Rock has presented an entirely different challenge. One that doesn’t just involve Cody, but one that involves his… friend. Yeah, they’re friends! And it’s time for that friend to come out here! Ladies and gentlemen, it’s the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The Visionary makes his entrance in a volt green ensemble and the fans sing his song, “WHOA~ OH~ OHH~!” Rollins joins Cody in the ring, gets a mic, and then revels in the singing.

Rollins then says, “San Antonio! Welcome…! To Monday! Night! Rollins~!” The fans cheer and Rollins ask “Mr. Nightmare, what’re you thinking, my man?” Cody says obviously, Rollins has offered to have Cody’s back against The Bloodline. Rollins stood next to Cody when he got slapped across the face, and Rollins has said he’s going to be there moving forward. The plot has been incredibly twisted. Cody didn’t even think he was gonna be on the WrestleMania card anymore, but when he saw that pompous PowerPoint presentation about The Bloodline’s family being better than everyone else’s that Cody had to go back on his word.

Cody won the Rumble, it is his right, HE gets to challenge Roman Reigns. Rollins meanwhile, coming off injury, he has to face the only other guy who has pinned Cody since Cody’s WWE return in Drew McIntyre. So, what Cody is saying and has wanted to say for all the world to see: Roman & Rock are two Mount Rushmore caliber wrestlers, working together, Cody fully understands if Rollins wants to focus on McIntyre and is not onboard with having Cody’s back. Rollins scratches the back of his head while he thinks. Rollins says he respects Cody giving him the out, Rollins will take care of McIntyre, alright?

Fans cheer as Rollins reminds us that he told McIntyre, he told Cody and he told the world, there are some things bigger than us. And taking down The Bloodline is the BIGGEST thing they can do! The fans cheer more, and Rollins says this isn’t just Cody’s story that needs to be finished. It is Rollins’ story, too. Ten years ago, Rollins and Roman came in together, they wanted to take the power from the top. Rollins wanted to take the power and give it back to the people! Turns out, Roman wants to keep all the power for himself! And here’s the problem: Rollins and Cody are this close. The Rock being in The Bloodline, they are this close to Roman Reigns having absolute power.

And The Rock, well… Rollins isn’t sure about the fans but he knows Cody agrees with this, Rollins is so over The Rock. The fans chant “ROCKY SUCKS!” again and Rollins says yeah, he does suck! And he ain’t been The Rock for a long time. He damn sure ain’t been The People’s Champ! And so Rollins isn’t just gonna call him any of that. Rollins has been thinking about it, he wants a new name for The Rock. He’s now gonna be… Diarrhea Dwayne! Because he’s been running his mouth and all that comes out is wet baby poo. The fans chant “DIARRHEA!” and Rollins is amused. Guess San Antonio agrees, huh?

Rollins continues to say that The Rock gets on Instagram, and 21 minutes!? Seriously? He insults Cody’s dog and says he can make the World Heavyweight Championship “go away?” That with a snap of his fingers, because he’s the boss, he’ll make it go away. Rock, Rollins dares you to try! And get this! In case you didn’t hear him, because 21 minutes is a long time to listen to that idiot, Rock said he made pro-wrestling cool again! Fans boo and Rollins agrees there. The Rock is our wrestling savior! He made this cool! Diarrhea Dwayne, you ain’t been cool in 20 years!

But here’s what is cool: This morning, Rollins received a 100% medical clearance! He is BACK, he is ready to go, and so this Friday, Rollins will be at SmackDown to confront The Bloodline! The fans fire up hearing that! Rollins wants to know, though, as he’s asked Cody many times and told him for weeks. Rollins has Cody’s back, so what Rollins wants to know is: does Cody have his? Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Cody tells Rollins that he also has a message for The Rock. “It’s been a long time since you haven’t just been handed something. I think it’s been since you had that seven bucks in your pocket, and I think you forgot.

“The People’s Champion is not in perpetuity, Rock. I am not the same man as you. I’m not gonna whine in a 21 minute promo. I am coming to SmackDown with Seth Freakin’ Rollins, I am going to stand across from you, Roman Reigns, The Wise Man, the whole Bloodline, in the great state of Texas, and this Friday, I will give you face-to-face, eye-to-eye, not whispering in your ear, crystal clear and obvious answer for what’s happening at WrestleMania!” Well, the American Nightmare & Visionary are all fired up, and it is pretty clear what’s about to happen at WrestleMania! Will this dream team tear down the Rock & Roman?

 

GUNTHER VS Dominik Mysterio w/ JD McDonagh!

Der Ring General wants challengers for his Intercontinental Championship, but he also doesn’t really take anyone else on this roster seriously. And, well, of all people to step up to him, it was Dirty Dom. Will the Prodigal Son prove the doubters wrong and find a way to bring down the most dominant Intercontinental Champion in history? Or is he going to wish he never left Papa Rey’s side?

The bell rings and Dom circles with Gunther. They feel things out, Dom kicks low but then backs away. The fans chant “Dom, You Suck!” Dom and Gunther tie up, and Gunther TOSSES Dom away! Dom staggers up and Gunther smiles. Dom and Gunther reset, then Dom goes for a leg. Gunther smothers that takedown with a facelock, then gets a leg! HALF CRAB! Dom scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Gunther lets off, and the Irish Ace coaches Dom up. Dom gets up to shove Gunther, then CHOPS him! Fans fire up but Gunther TOSSES Dom to a corner! Dom dodges the chop to CHOP again!

Gunther snarls, Dom wants forgiveness and hides in the ropes. Then Dom SLAPS Gunther! Gunther chases Dom out of the ring, and around it, but then JD steps up. JD knows how to take it to Gunther, but Gunther shoves JD into a post! Gunther swings but Dom gets JD outta the way, Gunther CHOPS the POST! Dom then SMACKS the hand off the post! Dom goes up while Gunter slides in, and Dom slingshots to STOMP! Dom gets Gunther up but Gunther gets a SLEEPER! Dom pries the bad arm away for an ELBOW BREAKER! Dom knuckle locks, CHOPS, then goes up and up to flying- NO, Gunther disrupts that!

Gunther kicks low then CHOPS through the pain! Dom falls right outta the ring and fans fire up while Raw goes to break.

It’s the Revolution Zero Hour!

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Willie Mack, Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of The Mack, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The teams sort out and Austin starts against Brother Zay. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” and Austin circles with Zay. Jarrett coaches Zay up and he ties up with Austin. Austin headlocks, grinds the hold, Sonjay offers fist bumps to the commentary team. Zay slips around to headlock Austin but Austin powers out. Zay ducks ‘n’ dodges and squealing DROPKICKS! Zay kips up and the fans join in on “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Things speed up, Zay whips but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges, then he BOOTS Zay down! Austin says “SHOTS! SHOTS!” and the fans join in! Zay is annoyed, he swings but misses and Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and two-steps to DECK Zay!

Austin brings Zay up, brings him over, and tags in Colten. The Gunns whip, body shot and knee lift! Then Colten CLOBBERS Zay! “Guns up!” The fans join in again as Colten says “SHOTS!” Zay tags Quen, Quen circles with Colten, then gets around to CLUB him! Quen RAMS Colten into a corner, Sonjay talks smack, and Quen whips corner to corner. Colten reverses then back drops Quen away! Quen squeals like Zay!

The fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Switchblade~!” White says in ten days time, AEW Dynamite in Boston, maybe he handles some Big Business of his own! Fans like the sound of that.

The Switchblade is taking aim at something, two guesses what title he wants to add to the collection.

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Lexi Nair is with Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor, but also Doc Sampson, because we need a medical update on the International Champion before his match with Roderick Strong tonight. Doc says as we know, Cassidy has been getting beat up the last few months, and that Doc keeps telling Cassidy to tape up that back and ribs. Tonight, it happens or he isn’t being cleared. Then with all that said, how does Cassidy feel going into this? Trent speaks up that Cassidy always fights through it. And just like always, the boys have his back. Cassidy wants to talk to them about that, actually

Tonight, before, during and after, Best Friends need to stay in the back. Cassidy is sick and tired of seeing his friends getting hurt because of him, so he has to do this on his own. Chuck says yeah, he’ll keep the others back and respect Cassidy on this. Hands in, and even Doc and Lexi join in. Freshly Squeezed has support in spirit, but will that not help when The Undisputed Kingdom will stack the deck?

 

We hear from PAC!

The Bastard says, “Here we go again. A tale as old as time. The forgotten bastard! Where have you been, boy? None of your pissin’ business where I’ve been! Well, you tell me. Who said life’s so hard? Huh? Every man has his struggle. Do you think I don’t know the burden of shame? Isolated, blinded, broken. I almost popped me clogs. But I didn’t~! You’ll never get rid of me, Tony Khan! I’m like a cockroach, an indestructible little bastard, always lurking in the underbelly. I will be back very soon, whether you like it or not. And I am going to drag this festering scrotum of a company into a new age! Because I’m alive, ladies and gentlemen! And doesn’t it feel good to be alive?”

The fans again give this a standing ovation because The Mad King keeps his crown! Eddie stands to bow in respect to Greensboro, but the real moment of truth is: Will Bryan show respect to Eddie? Bryan slowly sits back up, perhaps coming to terms with reality. Eddie waits, and Bryan hears the fans chant, “Shake His Hand! Shake His Hand!” Bryan looks down at himself, then up at Eddie. Eddie steps forward, and says forget it. Bryan isn’t doing it, so why is he sticking around? But then Bryan says hold on. Bryan stands, and holds out his hand!
