PLAY BY PLAY

Kevin Owens is here!

The Prizefighter returned on SmackDown to officially join Team Brawling Brutes against The Bloodline for WarGames! But  now Kevin’s back on Raw to let us know that he is the fifth man! He did that for a very good reason, and because of one specific person on the other team. And it’s not Sami Zayn. Even with everything they’ve been through, Kevin still sees Sami as a brother. Sami’s problems are his problems. But the person Kevin’s going after is Roman Reigns! “Roman, it’s been two long years since you and I faced each other in this ring. And this Saturday, I’m coming to remind you just who the hell I am.

“I am Kevin Owens! I am the guy who took you to the limit not once, not twice, but three times! I’m the guy who, if it wasn’t for your Bloodline, would’ve ended your history making title reign before it even started. And I’m the guy that’s coming to WarGames to take out your entire Bloodline so that the next time I get a shot at you, there’s nothing stopping me from being the guy that kicks your ass and takes your title!” Fans like the sound of that! Kevin continues with, “But now, last Friday night, I got to go to SmackDown because I was extended an invitation. And I thought, how rude would I be if I didn’t return the favor?

“So guess what? Tonight, I didn’t come alone.” The Brawling Brutes are here! And in a very Shield like way, Sheamus, Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland are coming down from the bleachers! And then, here comes DREW MCINTYRE! Fans fire up as they all get mics. Ridge tells Albany, “It’s FIGHT NIGHT!” Sheamus says there’s a banger cooking in the stove, cuz this Saturday, it’ll be one of the most pain-staking, unforgiving, career altering matches in the history of the WWE! Cuz this Saturday, it’s WARGAMES!! Sheamus says last Friday, Sami Zayn found out who the fifth man was, and he crapped his Ucey little pants!

Sheamus says now we all know that the fifth man is none other than the Prizefighter, K O! Fans cheer for that. McIntyre adds, “Now honestly, I don’t remember a time when Roman Reigns and the Bloodline weren’t holding the titles hostage. Abusing their power, abusing the numbers game. Well this Saturday, all of that is going to change. You’re looking at five lads that want to rip apart the Bloodline. Five lads that’re ready to walk into hell with a smile on their face. Two rings, two cages, no rules! Everybody, are you ready for a war?!” Albany sure is! But wait, here comes the Judgment Day!

Finn Balor, Dominik Mysterio, Rhea Ripley & Damian Priest make their way out to the ring, and Rhea says, “Drew, Drew, Drew.” Yes, Rhea? Shut up! Rhea says the only thing people will be talking about after Survivor Series, is how many people Rhea destroys in the Women’s WarGames Match! Now, she thinks this brawling buddies are all lost. This is Raw, the show that the Judgment Day runs! Priest says it isn’t play night! You wanna stand around looking all smacked, take that somewhere else. Here, you rise and show respect! Dom says yeah! Show respect! And before someone gets hurt, go back to SmackDown and tell Dom’s dad he said hi.

Finn says, “You tell ’em, Dom!” But Finn is here with a message for AJ Styles! Styles has been stealing from Finn for years! So at Survivor Series, Styles is getting taxed! Finn is coming to collect! And as for the five clowns in the ring, Finn hopes the Bloodline smashes you all at Survivor Series! Oh, and before he forgets… Next time they show their ugly mugs on Raw, the Judgment Day won’t be so nice. Fans boo but Sheamus tells Finn, “My fellow Irishman,” how’re you doin’, lad? They lived 10 miles apart back in Ireland. But two fighting Irishmen in America may be miles apart! Sheamus doesn’t respect Finn!

He doesn’t respect Finn because he’s the kind of “Plastic Patties” here in America Sheamus has come to despise. Plastic Patty? What?! Finn has a free lesson for Sheamus: “Even salt looks like sugar, and I’m one salty Irish bastard!” Oh yeah? Well Sheamus has been hungry to tear Finn apart! So since we’re all here, and since Albany is in a good mood tonight, let’s do Judgment Day VS Brawling Brutes, right here, RIGHT BLEEDIN’ NOW! Now you’re speaking their language! Challenge accepted! Then the Judgment Day rush in and the brawl is on!

Sheamus has Finn, Dunne and Ridge throw Priest and Dom out, and the Brutes are fired up! Will we get quite the sampler for Survivor Series?

Backstage interview with Johnny Gargano.

Cathy Kelley says that for weeks now, Johnny Wrestling has been shooting down The Miz’s alibis and excuses. Is that what he plans to do in their rematch tonight? Gargano says that Miz did what he did cuz he realized he couldn’t beat Gargano. Miz lied, cheated, used a spare turnbuckle. And that doesn’t sit right with Gargano. That is why we’re getting the rematch tonight. But what about Dexter Lumis? Well, the only thing Gargano wants for Lumis is to help out an old friend and make sure he gets what he deserves. There is a mutual understanding. Gargano won’t get involved in Lumis’ match next week, and Lumis won’t get involved here tonight.

Gargano gets Miz 1v1, man to man. No bells or whistles, just Johnny Wrestling VS whatever character Miz is tonight. Gargano heads out, will he expose Miz who who he is?

 

Johnny Gargano VS The Miz!

Raw returns as Gargano makes his entrance, followed by The Miz’s entrance. Miz isn’t dressed? Miz tells Gargano that while he’d love to have this rematch and beat him again, he unfortunately got hurt making a TikTok video. Not dancing, though he has moves like Jagger. No, Miz was kicking and punching and swiping away injuries from his Fantasy Football team, when he punched a cactus! Yes, he owns his own cacti in California, because he’s rich. The cactus didn’t survive, but Miz will. And in one week, he will defeat Lumis.

As for tonight, Miz knows Johnny Wrestling wants to put on a show for the fans, so Miz did the noble thing. Since Miz cannot compete, he found Gargano a worthy opponent! OMOS!? The Nigerian Giant, with Montel Vontavius Porter, walks out on stage, ready to do Miz’s dirty work. Will Gargano survive this little switcheroo from Miz?

The bell rings, Omos glares at Gargano while Miz joins commentary to over-enthusiastically cheer Gargano on. Gargano fires forearms but Omos SHOVES Gargano away. Gargano dodges Omos and fires body shots, but Omos shoves him away, to then BOOT him down! Gargano flops out of the ring and MVP says to keep it up. Omos goes out after Gargano, and SMOTHERS him against the desk! Omos puts Gargano in the ring, and Miz says he is giving Gargano a chance to show what he’s made of. Gargano dropkicks Omos off the apron, then DIVES! Omos staggers and almost hits the desk!

Gargano gets back in, PLANCHAS, but Omos catches him! Miz mockingly says, “Uh oh.” LAWN DART on the apron! Omos roars but fans boo. MVP says Omos is in control and Omos gets in the ring. Omos drags Gargano up but Gargano throws forearms! Gargano GAMANGIRIS and Omos wobbles! GAMANGIRI! Omos staggers away! Miz then hops off commentary to trip Gargano up! That hand isn’t bad at all! Speaking of hands, Omos drags Gargano with one hand, then hoists him up with both! But Gargano knees free! Omos snarls, runs in, but Gargano sends Omos into buckles! Omos falls over and Miz is shocked!

Gargano SUPERKICKS Omos! MVP wants Omos to stand up but Gargano SUPERKICKS again! And SUPERKICKS again!! Gargano hurries to the corner and climbs up! Fans fire up while Miz and MVP freak out! MACHO- NO! Omos catches Gargano! And then CHOKE SLAMS!! Miz laughs while wincing, Omos covers, Omos wins!

Winner: Omos, by pinfall

Miz mocks the valiant effort by Gargano, but Gargano isn’t who Miz needs to worry about. Will Dexter Lumis smother the Hollywood A-Lister and finally have the money and WWE contract he deserves?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Survivor Series: WarGames!

With Bobby Lashley AND Austin Theory gunning for him, The Visionary will have to defend his WWE United States Championship in a TRIPLE THREAT! Will Seth Freakin’ Rollins be able to #BurnItDown against The All Mighty and “The Now” of WWE? Speaking of…

Seth Rollins has a video interview.

Corey Graves thanks Rollins for his time, and knows he is still recovering from Theory’s attack. How is he feeling? Well, two weeks ago, he got mauled by Lashley. Last week, he got jumped by Theory. Rollins has never felt better, HAHAHA! But now we know that Saturday will be a Triple Threat title defense. How is he preparing for an incensed Lashley and an angry Theory, both who are more aggressive than ever before? Rollins says that Graves knows Rollins asked for that match, right? Rollins asked for the match because he has a bone to pick with both men, so a Triple Threat is two birds with one stone, if you know what he means.

“Now, you don’t prepare for a wild Bobby Lashley. You don’t tame a wild Bobby Lashley. You survive a wild Bobby Lashley, if you are equipped. And luckily for me, I have a PhD in getting back up. I’m like The Goonies, I never say die. HAHAHA! As for Austin Theory, he’s lost everything and he may be more dangerous than he’s ever been. But make no mistake about it, he’s still the stupidest person on the face of the Earth. And don’t get it twisted. Not because he tried to cash in his Money in the Bank contract on my US title. No, no, no, no. As somewhat of an expert on cash-ins, I thought that was very well-timed.

“Austin Theory is the stupidest person on the face of planet Earth for what he tried to do to me last week. Austin Theory jumped me from behind, he tried to beat me at my own game. Austin Theory wanted to make a name off of my name, and that never ends well for anybody. Theory, you don’t believe me? You need some proof? Why don’t you pick up your little cellphone, call Cody Rhodes, you ask him how he’s rehab is going. Yeah, you say, ‘Cody, Cody, was it a good idea to pick a fight with Seth Freakin’ Rollins?’ HAHAHA! You let me know what he says.

“The bottom line is this: This Saturday at Survivor Series, no no no, we are not in the WarGames match, no. But I promise you it is going to be a war! Because you’ve got three men who do not like each other going toe-to-toe-to-toe and we are all on the cusp. We could all SNAP at any second. And Bobby Lashley, he’s a brute, and I can deal with those. Austin Theory, well I know him like the back of my hand because I used to be Austin Theory. The real question is, what’re those dope boys gonna do to prepare for me? Because I am one of one. I am a Visionary, I am a revolutionary, I am Seth Freakin’ Rollins, and after Survivor Series, I will still be… United States Champion.”

 

Theory is watching.

Rollins laughs and pats the belt while Theory fumes. Theory tells Rollins, “You don’t understand me. Nobody understands me. And I’ve hit rock bottom, and it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I’m no longer the Youngest This or the Next Big That. And Seth, I’m not that kid that you’ve been in the ring with before. I’m a new man. And I will be taken serious. And after Survivor Series, this entire business is gonna know what time it is. The disrespect, it ends here. Because anybody that wants to step up is gonna get sent home, and I’m looking right at you, Dolph and Seth.

“Seth, I already know you’re watching. And Bobby, you’re probably somewhere punching a hole through a wall, but I know you’re watching. But both of you, pay attention close to what I do to Mustafa Ali tonight, because it will be the result of what happens this Saturday at Survivor Series.” Is Theory’s new darkness going to break an already battered Beacon?

 

Austin Theory VS Mustafa Ali!

The bell rings and Theory circles with Ali, They tie up, and Theory RAMS Ali into a corner! And RAMS and RAMS and then throws hands! Theory throws Ali and stalks him. Theory drags Ali up by the rib tape but Ali throws elbows and haymakers! Ali whips, Theory reverses and kitchen sink knees! Theory stomps Ali down again and again, and shouts, “All Day!” Theory drags Ali up, back suplexes, but Ali lands on his feet! Ali CHOPS, CHOPS, and whips, but Theory reverses hard! Ali bounces off buckles, into a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Theory clamps on with a rear bearhug! Ali endures as Theory squeezes!

Fans rally up as Ali fights to his feet. Ali throws elbow, Theory kicks him low. Theory ROCKS Ali, suplexes, but Ali slips out to shove him away. Ali tilt-o-whirl DDTs! Fans fire up while both men are down! Ali crawls to a corner, Theory storms over, but Ali ROCKS him first. Ali counter punches, throws more haymakers, but Theory puts him in a corner. Ali KNEES Theory back, wrenches and back suplexes! Theory flounders out of the ring but Ali builds speed! Ali DIVES, but Theory caches him to RAM him into the apron! And RAM into the barriers! Theory puts Ali back in, slingshots to somersault, into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!!

Theory hoists Ali up top, climbs up after him, but Ali throws body shots!

Fans fire up as Ali bumps Theory off buckles! Ali adjusts, to SUPER SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!! Both men are down, and Ali drags himself back to the top! Ali aims, to 450 SPLASH!! But the ribs take damage, too! Ali flounders after Theory, but Theory rolls out of the ring again! The fans boo but Ali goes out after Theory. Ali drags Theory up, puts him in the ring, but Theory BLASTS Ali off the apron! Theory then puts Ali in the ring, calls his shot, and fireman’s carries! A TOWN DOWN!! Cover, Theory wins!

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

Theory’s got a bloody forehead, but he doesn’t care. But then Lashley gets his attention on the tron. Theory wanted Lashley’s attention, well he has it now. And if Theory wants to get serious, then they’ll get serious. Theory can just stay right there, and Lashley will be heading to the ring so they can give Albany a preview of Survivor Series! Lashley is heading to gorilla! Will the All Mighty smite Theory before the Triple Threat?

 

Raw returns, and here comes Lashley!

Lashley stares at Theory and has a mic. “Look at you, Theory. I’m kinda surprised you’re still standing in that ring. I thought you were on the first SUV outta town. But I guess we got the ‘new’ Theory. I mean, look at you, standing there all tough, like you wanna fight. You wanted my attention, now you got my attention. But if you think you’re standing in the way of me and my United States Championship, kid, you’re outta your mind. You had the briefcase, you could’ve cashed it in, and all you had to do was pick up the scraps that I’d left for ya. And you still couldn’t get the job done.”

Theory tells Lashley, “I couldn’t get the job done? I’m playing games? Everybody in this arena, whether they wanna boo me or not, knows that right now, I would BE the United States Champion if it wasn’t for Bobby Lashley! But since you’re out here, let’s talk about Bobby Lashley. I remember Brock Lesnar kicked your ass. And then, right after that, you were the United States Champion and put that title on the line, and Seth Rollins beat you! And then, that wasn’t enough for Bobby Lashley because Bobby Lashley wanted redemption. So Bobby Lashley had to slay the Beast at Crown Jewel, and once again, Bobby Lashley couldn’t get the job done.”

Lashley smirks as Theory says the thing about him and Rollins, for some reason, they both think that they’re stepping in the ring at Survivor Series with the same kid. “That kid is dead and gone, and I am gonna walk into Survivor Series this Saturday, and I am gonna become a two-time United States Champion, and there ain’t a damn thing you can do about it.” Fans boo but Lashley says, “Is that right, Theory?” Theory walking out of Survivor Series? He isn’t even walking outta here tonight! The brawl is on! Theory CLUBS Lashley but Lashley RAMS him into the corner! Lashley fires off haymakers, then stomps away!

He JAMS Lashley, SMACKS him on the back, but that just pisses Lashley off!! Lashley snarls, Theory runs away into the crowd, but Lashley finds the shortcut! They go to the back, and Theory grabs Ali! They brawl, Theory sends Ali into Lashley!

Lashley is furious, but so is Ali. Ali shoves Lashley, but Lashley drags Ali out on stage! Lashley’s wrath sends Ali into the stage tron! And again! Fans fire up as Lashley puts Ali in the HURT LOCK!! Ali suffers for Theory’s transgressions, but will the All Mighty make Theory pay soon enough?

JBL and Baron Corbin are playing poker again.

They had a great limousine but the driver was awful. And he started showing Corbin around Albany! Has JBL seen this place? It’s terrible, too! Who lives here? The only thing worse than living in Albany is dying in Albany. But wait, in steps Drew McIntyre. Who’s winning the game? JBL is in awe of the “Modern Day William Wallace.” How’s Scotland doing in the World Cup? Oh… Right, they didn’t make it. Like JBL not making to WrestleMania that time Corbin had McIntyre. The outcome of that would’ve been significantly different, y’know. Just like it will be this Saturday when the Head of the Table gets his hands on McIntyre.

Oh, is that so? It is. Alright. McIntyre’s only in town for tonight, let’s put this theory to the test. Maybe one more time for old time’s sake? Corbin stands up and says they can settle it here and now. McIntyre says he respects his elders, but not Corbin! McIntyre DECKS Corbin with a right! JBL is furious, McIntyre tells Corbin he’ll see him in the ring! JBL says McIntyre will pay for that cheap shot, but will the Scottish Warrior prove Corbin is anything but a wrestling god?

 

WWE takes a closer look at WarGames!

“Some cages are built to keep things out. Some cages are built to keep things in. But our cage is built for war.” Drew McIntyre says The Bloodline has been on quite the run, but his team has issues with them all. This is more than just a match, this will be personal. Two cages, two teams, Ridge loves the possibilities of destruction. The most brutal structure in the WWE, Sheamus says these lads are going to have fun. Kevin Owens says he dreamed of competing in such a match, and he got to in NXT. Nothing compares to it, and this one will be special. “Five of the best brawlers this industry has to offer against The Bloodline, and this Saturday at Survivor Series, we’re going to war.”

Will Roman, the Usos, Solo & Sami survive the brutality of Kevin, McIntyre and the Brutes?

 

Drew McIntyre VS Baron Corbin w/ JBL!

The Scottish Warrior just wanted to be dealt in, but now he’ll be dealing out pain! Will he use the “Modern Day Wrestling God” as a mere warm-up for WarGames? Or will he end up added to the list of names Corbin has been putting away since his return?

Raw returns as McIntyre makes his entrance, Angela the claymore sword in hand. The bell rings and Corbin rushes in! McIntyre dodges, but Corbin bails out before he can get hit! Fans boo but Corbin and JBL talk strategy. Corbin gets back in, he circles with McIntyre, and they tie up. They’re in a deadlock, but Corbin finds a point of leverage.

Corbin CHOPS McIntyre, “Payback!” Corbin whips McIntyre corner to corner hard, then runs in to clothesline McIntyre down! Fans boo as Corbin stomps a mudhole into McIntyre. Corbin digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, and he taunts McIntyre, “What you got?! You got nothing!” He stomps away on McIntyre again! The ref counts, Corbin lets off, and JBL warns the ref. McIntyre drags himself up but Corbin is on him, to POST him! Corbin laughs it up and mocks the fans as he soaks up the heat.

McIntyre ROCKS Corbin, whips him to ropes, but Corbin reverses. McIntyre ducks ‘n’ dodges to CROSSBODY, but Corbin catches him! FALL AWAY SLAM! JBL likes that! Corbin aims, runs in, but McIntyre dodges! Corbin slides out, in, but McIntyre dodges to HEADBUTT! But Corbin LARIATS! JBL says to capitalize but Corbin has to crawl around while Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Corbin has McIntyre up top! McIntyre resists the superplex so Corbin throws body shots. Corbin brings McIntyre up again, to SUPERPLEX! Corbin crawls to the cover, TWO!! McIntyre is still in this and Corbin is furious! JBL tells the ref to stop with the slow counts, but the ref defends it was fair. Corbin snarls and he throws hands on McIntyre. McIntyre hits back! Corbin hits McIntyre, McIntyre hits back, repeat! McIntyre CHOPS, Corbin ROCKS, the haymakers go back and forth again, but Corbin UPPERCUTS! Corbin scoops, but McIntyre slips off and shoves Corbin into the corner.

Corbin tells the ref to count ot three but the ref tells him to back off. Corbin says he doesn’t listen to the ref, the ref listens to him! But wait, Akira Tozawa appears on the desk! And he LEAPS onto JBL! What’s he doing!? Tozawa takes the hat! Tozawa runs off and Corbin is just as furious as JBL! But Corbin turns around, CLAYMORE!! Cover, McIntyre wins!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

JBL is losing his mind over what just happened! The Stamina Monster snatched away THE hat, and now the Modern Day Wrestling God has his first loss since returning! Will JBL and Corbin make Tozawa pay for playing games? Will McIntyre use this momentum to get the advantage win this Friday and then THE win on Saturday?

 

Backstage interview with The OC.

Cathy Kelley says the match is set, Styles VS Finn happens at Survivor Series. Are emotions riding high given the history between them? Styles says they are. And it’s a shame, because Styles and Finn were close. But Styles has realized this is his family. Gallows & Anderson are his brothers, Mia Yim is his sister, and they are the OC. This thing with the Judgment Day ends at Survivor Series when Styles gives Finn the beating he deserves! And it’ll be phenomenal. But then Finn walks over! Styles thinks Finn is a bad guy? He’s wrong. Finn is worse! He’s the devil! And when you dance with the devil, you never dance again!

And then Rhea BOOTS Mia outta nowhere! The brawl is on between JD and OC!! Dom has Anderson, Priest has Gallows, Finn has Styles! Karl TOSSES Dom into a dumpster! But Finn goes after Karl! Styles comes back for more and he RAMS Finn into crates! The Good Brothers get Priest but Dom comes back! And who knows where Mia and Rhea went! This starts spilling out into the back lot! They’re brawling right up against someone’s SUV! Karl SLAMS Dom on the hood! Priest RAMS Gallows into the open door! And SLAMS the door shut on him! Security rushes out, as do referees and officials! It’s chaos as Raw goes to break, will any of them even make it to WarGames!?

 

Women’s WarGames Advantage: Asuka VS Rhea Ripley!

While Team EST is down a member, they’re not worried about that yet. They just want the numbers advantage first! The Empress will battle the Eradicator, but first they all get the mics. Bianca says we all know Bayley and Bianca have had problems since SummerSlam, and they’ve been tearing each other apart! Not just for the Raw Women’s Championship but the future of this division. This battle ends Saturday the only way it can: WARGAMES! Now, Bianca has won the battle but not the war, and she can’t do that alone. There is no one she’d rather go to war with than her girls! Alexa Bliss, Mia Yim, who is handling business and will be ready for WarGames.

And of course, the woman who will win the advantage tonight, ASUKA! While Bayley plays games, Bianca’s ready for war! Alexa says she’s ready to get payback on Damage Control and put Nikki Cross in the trash where she belongs! Asuka says they are ready for war, but no one is ready for them! And tonight, Rhea is not ready for Asuka! Best believe that everyone wants on the team because DMG CTRL has a lot of enemies. When they make their decision on Friday, y’all will not be disappointed. Fans are a little disappointed, they wanted it tonight. But Rhea makes her way out, with DMG CTRL by her side!

Bayley wants everyone to hold on. We’re to believe Bianca has her fifth partner? And she’s gonna make us wait until Friday? Sounds like the EST is stalling. Or maybe it’s just harder than she thought to find one more person who actually likes her? DING DONG, HELLO~! No one even respects Bianca! Not even her teammates. They’re just sucking up to Bianca to get a title shot. Not that they’d ever stand a chance. You got “Michan,” but Rhea took her out. Then Asuka and Alexa have lost to Kai & Sky time and time again. And they’re all led by Bianca, “the same champ who’s throwing poor little Asuka right into the fire tonight, instead of you stepping up to Rhea like a real leader, like a real champion.”

Asuka tells Bayley to SHUT UP! In both English and Japanese! Then she tells Rhea, “Let’s do this right now!!” Rhea says that just like WrestleMania, “Mami’s gonna eradicate ya.” The two stare down, the ref gets in, and it’s time to back up all these words! Who will get the advantage? We find out, after the break!

Raw returns and the bell rings. Fans rally as the two slowly circle. They approach but Rhea gets around Asuka. Rhea taunts Asuka, they circle more, and approach again. Rhea goes to get around Asuka but Asuka catches her by her hair! Asuka thrashes Rhea around but Rhea powers out to throw Asuka! Rhea won’t let Asuka pull her hair, and she TOSSES Asuka again! DMG CTRL watches backstage, apparently sent to the back during break so this is truly 1v1. Asuka ROCKS Rhea, bumps her off buckles, then KICKS her down! Asuka gives Rhea some Kawada Kicks! Rhea blocks one to ROCK Asuka!

Rhea snapmares, KICKS Asuka in the back, then runs to basement dropkick! Cover, ONE!! Asuka snarls as Team EST also watches backstage. Rhea drags Asuka up, whips her to a corner, and then runs in. Rhea ducks the boot but Asuka SLAPS her! Asuka elbows Rhea, BOOTS her, then hops up the corner. Asuka leaps to MISSILE DROPKICK! Rhea bails out, Asuka builds speed, but Rhea blocks the dropkick to reel Asuka into an Electric Chair! Asuka fights free to SMACK Rhea off the apron! Asuka puts Rhea on the apron, CLUBS away on her, then runs in to HIP ATTACK! Rhea flounders into the ring and fans fire up!

Asuka hurries in after Rhea but Rhea bails back out. Rhea says she won’t cater to the fans, but the ring count climbs. Asuka waits on Rhea, Rhea waits until 7 of 10 to get on the apron. The ref has Asuka stay back but Rhea hops back down. Fans boo more but Rhea just soaks up the heat. The ring count climbs again, Rhea hops back onto the apron, and she steps inside. But Asuka fires off KICKS! Asuka waistlocks, Rhea elbows free. Rhea catches the hip attack but now Asuka throws elbows. Rhea throws Asuka down by her hair! Rhea hammers away on Asuka from behind, then SLAPS her around! The ref reprimands but Rhea tells the ref to shut up.

Rhea KICKS Asuka in the side, then stalks her to ropes. Rhea eggs Asuka, soaks up the heat from the fans, then whips Asuka to CLUB her in the back! rhea drags Asuka back up, whips and CLUBS her again! Asuka writhes but Rhea just dusts herself off. Rhea talks trash, looms over Asuka, and CLUBS her again and again and again! Rhea drags Asuka up, laughs, and whips again, but Asuka ROCKS Rhea! Rhea LARIATS back! Cover, TWO! Rhea says the ref needs to learn how to count. The ref says his count is fair, but Rhea drags Asuka up. Rhea wraps on a body scissor and squeezes tight! Asuka endures as Rhea taunts her with WrestleMania.

Rhea CLUBS away on Asuka but Asuka still endures. Fans rally and Asuka pushes back to a cover! ONE, and Rhea still holds onto the scissors. Asuka pushes back again, ONE, but Asuka turns Rhea over and slips free! ANKLE LOCK! Rhea endures now and Asuka drops to a KNEEBAR!! Rhea shouts and fights up, pries Asuka off the leg to SLAM her down! Rhea snarls, drags Asuka up and RAMS her into buckles. Rhea throws body shots and forearms, tells the ref to shut up again, then she RAMS into Asuka! “You think you can step into the ring with me again?” Rhea SLAPS Asuka but Asuka SLAPS Rhea! Rhea snarls, but Asuka BOOTS her!

Rhea returns to DROPKICK Asuka to the floor!! Fans boo but Rhea says Asuka’s pathetic while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rhea toys with Asuka. She slaps Asuka around but Asuka SLAPS back! Rhea BOOTS Asuka, fires off in the corner, then runs in, but Asuka moves! Rhea POSTS herself! Both women are down and while Bayley is still confident in Rhea, Nikki isn’t even paying attention. Rhea gets up, swings but Asuka dodges! Asuka fires off kick after kick! She bobs ‘n’ weaves to BACKHAND! BACKHAND! SOBAT! KICK! BACKHAND! CODE BREAKER!! Rhea falls to the corner and fans fire up with Asuka! Asuka runs corner to corner to HIP ATTACK! Bianca & Alexa are liking this, but Rhea powers out of the Bulldog.

Rhea boots but Asuka blocks! Asuka spins Rhea for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Asuka drags Rhea back up but Rhea reels back! Asuka spins but Rhea ducks the backhand to shove Asuka to ropes. Asuka wheelbarrows but Rhea blocks the victory roll! Rhea ties up the legs, PRISM TRAP!! Asuka endures as Rhea holds her off the mat! Asuka reaches out, claws her way forward, but Rhea drags her back! Asuka victory rolls Rhea out of the ring! Rhea gets up, she ROCKS Asuka, then she goes up the corner. But Asuka trip Rhea down! Rhea tumbles, Asuka runs, SLIDING KICK! Cover, TWO!

Rhea and Asuka are down, catching their breaths. Asuka rises, Rhea goes to ropes, and fans rally up. Asuka runs in, but Rhea dodges the hip attack to HOOK KICK! Asuka flops down and Rhea shakes out the cobwebs. Asuka sits up, Rhea kicks her and stomps a foot! KNEE SMASH, HEADBUTT, and a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Asuka survives and Rhea is furious with the ref! The ref says she shouldn’t even, that was a fair count. Rhea looms over Asuka, and says Asuka just had to piss her off. Rhea pump handles and lifts, RIP- NO, Asuka slips out to get the ARMBAR! Rhea fights that but Asuka has the chinbar!

Rhea fights around, keeps the Asuka Lock from finishing, and DMG CTRL returns to ringside to cheer Rhea on. Rhea RAMS Asuka into a corner! And again! Rhea is free and she crawls away, but here comes Bianca and Alexa! They tell DMG CTRL to watch it, and Asuka ROUNDHOUSES Rhea! FLYING ARMBAR TAKEDOWN!! Rhea flails and fans fire up! Rhea stacks to a cover, TWO! Asuka avoids the boot, Rhea avoids the backhand! They keep dodging each other, RIPTIDE!!! Cover, RHEA WINS!!

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by pinfall (Team DMG CTRL has advantage)

The brutality was unleashed and Bayley is happy to see her side has the advantage. But then they drag Asuka out of the ring! DMG CTRL mugs Asuka, but Bianca and Alexa hurry after them! It’s a brawl but Bayley’s side has numbers advantage now! But Alexa BOOTS Nikki down! Bianca DECKS Bayley, DECKS Sky, DECKS Kai, but then Bayley anchors Bianca. Bliss DECKS Sky! Bianca TOSSES Kai and KICKS Bayley! Nikki runs in, into a scoop! And a TOSS into the barriers! But Rhea CLOBBERS Bianca and HEADBUTTS Bliss! Rhea rains down fists on Bianca, but MIA returns! Mia and Rhea brawl, and Mia TOSSES Rhea into the crowd!

Asuka climbs up top while DMG CTRL is after Bianca and Bliss. Asuka SUPER CROSSBODIES everyone down!! And this is without a cage! What happens when Bianca reveals her fifth to complete the cast of ten that will go to war?


My Thoughts:

A really good go-home from Raw, or rather just part one of the go-home since SmackDown has their own part to play. They didn’t have that many recap packages to worry about, and had a lot more action. It was a nice surprise that Kevin brought the Brutes and McIntyre to Raw, even though The Bloodline hardly ever shows up here. Good promos, and good interaction with The Judgment Day that also brought in The OC. And we also got good interaction between McIntyre, Corbin and JBL. Great win for The Brutes, great win for McIntyre, but I wonder if this means the Bloodline wins the advantage on SmackDown. I feel like the team with advantage ends up the one losing, so Bloodline having advantage to lose, giving The Brutes a great lead into the various title stories, just makes sense.

Likewise, it makes sense DMG CTRL got advantage through the main event. We got great stuff from Judgment Day and The OC, like that brawl that spilled into the parking lot. Asuka VS Rhea was really good, and I suppose sending the allies backstage for them to all come storming back out was the better move. If they were all ringside to start, any number of shenanigans would’ve happened and would’ve taken away from the overall quality. The closing brawl was great, but I’m with Albany, I was hoping we’d get something on the fifth woman for Team EST tonight. Even just a tease would’ve been nice. I’m hoping it’s Candice LeRae, for reasons I’ve said before.

I should’ve expected Miz pulling that switch on Gargano, but I didn’t expect it to be Omos. Gargano looked great almost beating Omos, but of course Omos goes over as the insane monster. Miz VS Lumis being on Raw TV makes sense on many different levels. For one, limiting the number of matches on a PPV card to maximize the time each match gets is HHH’s style, as we know from TakeOvers and other NXT events. Plus, while Lumis and Miz are both really good characters, their grudge match isn’t going to be a PPV level match, but does make for a good post-PPV Raw match.

Really fun tag match out of Elias & Riddle VS Alpha Academy. It seems to be Riddle’s thing that while he’s a good singles wrestler, he can team up with almost anyone and make it work. Great string of moves in the finish from the #DriftBros, and I have a feeling they’ll get going on a parallel with RKBRO, with the main difference being that Elias will turn on Riddle when Randy never did. Riddle and Elias can make for a great feud going towards the Royal Rumble, and either guy can come out looking great as a contender towards the US title.

Speaking of, we got great stuff from the US Championship story. For one, a Triple Threat is great, though I totally expected something like this to be last month with Mustafa Ali as the third member, not Theory. But Theory is doing well with this new, angrier persona, as he shows in his match with Ali. Lashley calling Theory out and them brawling for a bit was good, but I feel like Ali being stuck in the middle of this story means he’s going to be involved with the US title on the other side of Survivor Series. Rollins had a great promo, I would think part of the reason for a Triple Threat means he can win without any of them looking particularly weak. Him mentioning Cody was an interesting detail. Is Rollins teasing Cody coming for the US title, just as I’ve been sensing?

My Score: 8.5/10

Six Man Tag: Adam “Edge” Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston VS Top Flight!

The Rated R Chickenhawks or whatever you want to call them are getting ready for their battle with The House of Black at Dynasty! But will they be able to bring some momentum into St. Louis? Or will Action Andretti and the Martin brothers be too fast for them to keep up with?

The trios sort out and Action starts against Mark. Action does a crane stance to mock redneck kung-fu, but Mark strikes his stance. Action kicks, Mark blocks then flips Action to arm-drag him down! Mark has the cording hold to grind Action down, but action fights up. Mark wrenches the wristlock, but Action spins, bridges, and handsprings through and wrenches back.

Edge rises, but into a DROPKICK! Darius tags Dante and they double whip Edge to a corner. Dante sends Darius in but Edge puts Darius on the apron. Darius CHOPS Edge, Dante A-LIST LARIATS!

The fans are torn as Dante stays between Edge and Eddie. Dante is a little surprised, but he ROCKS Edge to a corner. Dante runs in, but Edge dodges the elbow! Edge runs in, Dante dodges to then go up and around, only to get caught! POWERSLAM! Edge brings Dante over, tag to Eddie, and the fans fire up as Eddie HEADBUTTS away on Dante! Eddie CHOPS Dante in a corner and Dante sputters as he falls! Eddie taunts Darius and Action, then he whips Dante. Dante goes up and out to ROCK Eddie from the apron. Dante springboards to CANNONBALL! The fans fire up as both men stand, and Eddie knees low!

Eddie CLUBS Dante in the chest! The fans fire up behind Eddie as he stalks Dante, and he ROCKS Dante while Collision goes picture in picture.

Eddie drags Dante back up, puts him in the corner, and smothers him while he tags Mark. Mark then CHOPS Dante, brings him around, and suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! Dante stays in this but Mark stays on him with a back suplex! Tag to Edge, they mug Dante, then Edge brings Dante around to whip at the corner hard! Edge runs up to clothesline, then he fires point-blank clotheslines again and again! The ref counts, Edge still goes all the way to TEN, then he BOOTS Dante down!

Winners: Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

This trio is ready! They also show respect to Top Flight, but wait! The lights go down! And we all know that means House of Black! Buddy Matthews sarcastically claps from the tron as he says that was impressive. But take a moment to look each other in the eyes, so they can thank each other. Because in 24 hours, the House of Black eradicates all their dreams at Dynasty. Malakai Black steps forward to say they will dig deep. So deep that they reach their deepest, darkest fears. So deep, that Edge will wonder if he’s close to Hell. It will oddly feel familiar. Because let’s face it, for people like Malakai and Edge, Hell is where the heart is.

The lights come back up, but neither edge, Eddie or Mark sweat that warning. Will the AEW TNT Champion, the ROH World Champion and the NJPW Strong Openweight Champion be too good of a hand for the full House to stop?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Don Callis VS CJ Esparza!

The Don Callis Family is all in action tonight, and it starts with Hobbs warming up for his showdown on Dynamite. The NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Jon Moxley, called Hobbs out, will Hobbs send him a message back through the #FlippinSweet Mr. CJE?

The bell rings, Hobbs almost laughs at CJE for being less than half his size. CJE fires hands, but Hobbs shoves and CLOBBERS CJE right down! Hobbs drags CJE up, and whips him right out of the ring! Hobbs goes out after CJE, Callis is on commentary to tell us that Hobbs has done things we can’t even talk about on TV. And that’s about to happen to CJE! POWERSLAM on the apron, another POWERSLAM, and then another POWERSLAM! Hobbs puts CJE in, for the TORTURE RACK!! CJE taps, Hobbs wins!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by submission

Callis joins his Powerhouse in the ring, with a mic, to say he has something important to say. The fans boo as Callis says the Don Callis Family is the talk of the pro-wrestling world! They have the Bunkhouse Brawl tonight, so out of concern for his own personal safety, Callis will NOT be at ringside. But everyone is talking about Hobbs VS Moxley for Dynamite. That is what you know, but he’ll tell us what we don’t know. Everyone knows that Callis was directly responsible in 2017 for Kenny Omega to win the then IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Everyone knows the biggest match in the history of Japanese wrestling was Omega VS Jericho in the Tokyo Dome in 2018!

Omega VS Jericho was signed, sealed and delivered by “Don BAH GAWD Callis,” and it was a match that set NJPW on a new course of success that they enjoy to this day. And they thank him for the favor, or “onkei,” he promised he’d come back to ask for that favor. And in Japanese culture, everyone honors those commitments. Callis waited six years to cash in that chip, and he’s been burning up the phonelines to cash in ALL his chips. So he is happy to announce here tonight, that Moxley VS Hobbs on Dynamite is now for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship!! Once again, that IWGP world title will come home to the Don Callis Family!

The fans boo at Callis pulling strings, but now Hobbs has the biggest match of his career! Will the Powerhouse add some gold to the Book of Hobbs’ next chapter?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hey, everybody. Um, first of all, I just want to apologize to Hook, to Taz, and to all of you watching for my conduct this past Wednesday night. I lost my temper and I pushed Taz to the mat, which made Hook lose his cool, and he came at me. Listen, I don’t blame Hook for that at all. I mean, if somebody put their hands on a person that means as much to me as Taz does to Hook, I would’ve done the exact same thing. And when you had me in the corner, Hook, you said to me, ‘I’m gonna show you just how good I am, any place, anywhere.’ And unfortunately, I’m gonna take you up on that.”

Jericho reveals he went to Tony Khan and asked for an FTW Championship match, and that request was granted. The real unfortunate part is this: The Learning Tree is gonna teach Hook one of the hardest lessons he’s ever gonna learn, and it’s a lesson in humility. A lesson about how hard it is to lose something that means so much to him. But the Learning Tree will make sure Hook is learning not just in-ring lessons but life lessons, as well. Jericho wants to make Hook a better wrestler and a better person. So keep this in mind: Jericho will beat Hook for the FTW Championship, but it will hurt Jericho a lot more than it will Hook.

The Ocho is looking to humble the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but will he be the one that gets humbled instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

In the homecoming of AEW, the post-Dynasty Dynamite will be live coast-to-coast! No delays for the West Coast, watch it at 5 PM Pacific while East watches it at 8 so we can all celebrate AEW together!

 

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS The Gunns w/ Jay White!

Ahead of putting all the trios gold on the line, we get a remix of the… “classic” feud between these teams! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens want to humble Austin & Colten like they did over a year ago, but will this be where the Ass Boys graduate to being men? Caster has a track on deck! “It’s 420, Bowens is all about that incense. They legalized weed, but y’all legalized incest.

If the Gunns run away from this match, they don’t get their match at Dynasty! Austin says they can just leave now then. Schiavone asks if he even heard a word that was said.

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon and notes that the Don Callis Family has been relentless. Last time we saw Bryan, he was laid out by a brainbuster to the ramp. Tonight, it is a Bunkhouse Brawl against Takeshita & Fletcher, right before Dynasty’s match with Will Ospreay. How is Bryan feeling? Bryan says it sounds like a lot on his plate. Yet here he is! He feels alive! And it does seem like the DCF is up to something. What could that be? Does Don Callis not have the faith in Ospreay he says he does? Another reason Bryan feels alive is because Takeshita dropped him on his head, on the ramp, and yet Bryan gets his revenge tonight!

Then tomorrow, Bryan will test himself against Will Ospreay, a man many people call the best in the world today, and Bryan will test that for himself. But then in walks Ospreay, wanting to apologize. He had nothing to do with what went down on Dynamite or Collision this past week, so he just wants there to be no excuses on either side. He has nothing to do with this stuff. Bryan says sure he doesn’t. Bryan leaves, Ospreay wants to defend his innocence, but will it matter when it’s all said and done?

 

Toni Storm speaks.

It was after the incident with Thunder Rosa on Dynamite that the AEW Women’s World Champion returned backstage. She said to keep this in full color, so that we could see what Rosa did to her. And she also wants to make what she says clear. Rosa wants to be a hero? A martyr? To rally the troops? There is nothing more disgusting than a wrestler that says they’re not selfish. This is a business, not a charity. If Rosa wants to uplift other women, she should’ve stayed a social worker. Rosa may be a fighter, but Storm is a star. Rosa doesn’t want this belt back because she once held it, but because of everything Storm has made it that Rosa never could.

This title shines in Storm’s reflection. This leather smells nice when Storm sniffs it. And Rosa just basks in the sunshine that glows right out of Storm’s arse! Rosa wants to take Storm to Hell? Better check the address. Hell is in Storm’s bedroom and Storm makes love to her demons every bloody night. So don’t worry, at Dynasty, Rosa can just watch. The leading lady is ready for the dramatic climax of this title picture, but will she be the one on top when it’s all over?

 

Bunkhouse Brawl: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been throwing hands with the Don Callis Family but it’s time to throw rules out the window. Will the American Dragon & Swiss Superman make it through? Or will the Aussie Arrow & Alpha make sure Bryan doesn’t establish his Dynasty?

Oh no! The DCF attack during the BCC’s entrance!

Winners: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli, by submission

This Bunkhouse Brawl was brutal, but it goes the Blackpool Combat Club’s way! Bryan has the music stop so he can get on the mic. He had a lot of people asking, “What the hell are you doing having a Bunkhouse match the night before you wrestle Ospreay? It’s because of this. Some people, when they think of Heaven, they think of streets of gold, they think of 40 virgins, but that’s not me! My spirit is a part of this! When I die, my heaven will be standing in this ring, bleeding in front of all you people right here in Peoria, Illinois!” The fans cheer that!

Bryan continues to say that having a whole crew of people trying to break him before he faces one of the best in the world, having everyone tell him he can’t do it… Tomorrow, at Dynasty, Bryan beats Ospreay’s ass! The fans really fire up for that one! The American Dragon may not be 100%, but will he be giving 1000% when that bell rings in St. Louis?

 

Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway speak.

The Galaxy’s Greatest asks, “Do you wanna know what we are? We are fired up!” The Babe with the Power says yep! And you wanna know what “fired up” is long for? F U! Because what that is short for is FIRED UP! Stokely stops them from burning out, because where he’s from, F U means something different. So therefore, F U Brody King! F U to the soon to be former TBS Champion, Julia Hart! Willow asks if a confident champion takes a chain and sucker punches their challenger days before the match. Don’t think so! Willow has Julia’s number this time, so Willow’s gonna do something she’s never done before.

Willow is gonna pick Julia up, hoist her high, and BOMB her through that mat, to send her back to the shadow realm she came from. Tomorrow at Dynasty, Willow walks out the NEW TBS Champion, b*tch!! WORLDSTAR!! OH~! Willow is ready, but will she go from Babe with the Power to the Babe with the Title?

 

Skye Blue VS Leyla Hirsch!

The Chicago Skye is getting darker and darker, but she still chases the bright shine of championship gold. Will she be primed for something after Dynasty? Or will there be a LEGIT contender stepping up instead?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Leyla right down! Skye CLUBS Leyla, fires forearms, then lets off to argue with the ref. Leyla trips Skye to rain down fists! Skye gets away, but Leyla whips. Skye reverses to kick low, then runs and runs and hops on, but Leyla blocks the Code Blue to SLAM Skye down, and KNEE her in the face! Skye scrambles out of the ring and fans boo. Leyla is annoyed, but she watches Skye go around the way. Leyla then builds speed to DIVE into a forearm! Skye may’ve baited Leyla in there, but now she drags her out onto the apron, DRAPING TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Skye drags Leyla up and into the ring, then takes her time storming in.

The fans rally, Skye stomps Leyla, then stomps her more. Skye drags Leyla up, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Leyla hangs tough but Skye drags her up to CHOKE her on ropes! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then she storms up on Leyla again. Leyla ROCKS Skye! And ROCKS her again, and again! Skye DECKS Leyla for it!

Skye grins, whips corner to corner, but Leyla reverses to SAIDO! Leyla storms up, wheelbarrow and GERMAN SUPLEX!

Leyla has the fans rallying up as she takes aim. Skye stirs, Leyla puts her in a drop zone, then goes up. But Skye CLUBS Leyla! Skye then tucks Leyla in for CHEEKY NANDOS! Leyla wobbles on the ropes, Skye turns her around and climbs up after her. Skye fires forearms, brings Leyla up, but Leyla fights the lift! Leyla CLUBS Skye, CLUBS her again and again, then adjusts to SUPER SUNSET FLIP GERMAN SUPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Leyla is shocked! Leyla won’t stop, though, she puts Skye in a drop zone again and goes back up. But Skye hits ropes to trip Leyla up! SUPERKICK! Skye roars, and she brings Leyla up for a fireman’s carry! T K O!!

Roll back, DRAGON SLEEPER!! Leyla TAPS, Skye wins!

Six Man Tag: Kazuchika Okada & The Young Bucks VS PAC & FTR!

Collision’s main event is like an extra large Dynasty appetizer!
