PLAY BY PLAY

Becky Lynch is here!

Brooklyn is Big Time already as Becky is in the ring and gets the mic. Adam Pearce is also in the ring, he has a mic, but Becky starts by saying, “The Man has come around to Brooklyn! So that I can say, welcome to Monday Night Raw!” Becky even dressed up all “spiffy” for us, and she brought Pearce. Fans boo but Pearce doesn’t understand why. Becky says they shouldn’t hold it against her, but she’ll get to Pearce later. As good as it felt last week to beat Bayley inside the steel cage, big shout out to Lita for having her back, a living legend who forgave Becky for being a weirdo last year, bygones are bygones, Becky realized something,

Becky’s path to WrestleMania is not clear. She has been so distracted by the Damage CTRL fools, she lost sight of what is most important to her in the WWE and that is the title. “And so if there’s one thing I love to do, it’s fight my way into things. And we are less than a week away from Elimination Chamber, and Adam Pearce, this brings me to you. If there’s one thing you love to do, it’s up the ante and make some fights. So I’m presenting you with an opportunity. I’m giving you the opportunity to let me fight my way into that Elimination Chamber, right here, tonight! What do you say, Adam?”

But then Bayley walks out! Becky is upset but the Role Model says, “Whoa whoa, whoa whoa, whoa, Becky. IF you think that you’re getting a shot, that you’re getting into the Elimination Chamber after what you pulled last week, than you’re a bigger idiot than all of these idiots!” Fans boo but Bayley says Becky didn’t finish nothing last week! That so-called Hall of Famer had to do it for her! Oh, no, Lita took care of Bayley’s girls so that Becky could take care of Bayley. Bayley disagrees, she wants to talk with Adam Pearce to scrub that Steel Cage match from the record, uninvite Lita from all future events, and then add Bayley into the Chamber. That’s what she deserves!

Fans boo but Bayley says she is a GRAND SLAM WOMEN’S CHAMPION! Becky doesn’t know what that’s like, huh? Becky says she’s a WrestleMania main eventer and Bayley doesn’t know what that is like. Well no one wants to see Becky VS Bianca again! DING DONG HELLO, Becky lost! Well if Becky remembers right, she and Bianca stole the show. Where was Bayley? Nowhere to be found on her pegleg. Bayley says she has successfully, SUCCESSFULLY both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships at WrestleManias. But Becky reminds Bayley that she won the first ever Winner Takes All at WrestleMania!

Pearce has Bayley and Becky calm down, but then here comes Bianca! The RawEST Women’s Champion has a mic of her own as she struts out on stage. “Now, now, now. I hear a whole lot of talk about the Raw Women’s Championship, but nobody thought about to come talk to the Raw Women’s Champion herself?” Fans chant “EST! EST!” as Bianca makes her way to the ring to join the others. If they had actually asked Bianca, she would’ve said she likes where this is going, since she wants to face the best of the best.

Now, Adam, there are already six women in the Elimination Chamber match, but if Becky and Bayley want to get through that to get through her, then they should go through her in the first place. Pearce likes that! Here’s an idea: These three compete in a Triple Threat! And hold on, speaking of raising the stakes, if either Bayley or Becky win, they’re added to the Chamber to start as a Triple Threat. BUT: if Bianca wins, then neither Bayley or Becky get in. That’s a hell of a main event and a fair fight. What do the fans say? The fans love it, Becky and Bianca and Bayley all shake on it, so it’s official! Bayley VS Becky VS Bianca in a Triple Threat!

But will this riskiEST move help Bianca cross off some storied rivals on the Road to WrestleMania? Or will this year’s Elimination Chamber be historic even before it begins?

 

Backstage interview with The Judgment Day.

Byron Saxton walks over to Finn Balor, Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio. He notes that Saturday, Elimination Chamber, it will be a Mixed Tag of Finn and Rhea VS Edge and Beth Phoenix. Priest steps into the Chamber itself for the US Championship. So tonight, are they prepared for the huge weekend ahead? Priest tells Byron that that isn’t the question. The real question is: are those five other men prepared to step into that Chamber with Priest? Dom says that’s right, and he knows a thing or two about being locked up. Dom’s been training with Priest all week, and he knows Priest will run the Chamber like Dom did the cell block, and then Priest walks out of Montreal the NEW United States Champion!

Plus, Dom just got off the phone with Mami Rhea, and she’s still traveling the world to promote WrestleMania. She’s excited for the Chamber, and Valentine’s Day. Finn says tonight, they have the Street Profits. They want the smoke? Ha! Tonight, they’re gonna get rolled up, bowled up, and smoked up.” The Prince leads the way, but will they be the ones getting burned tonight?

The Judgment Day VS The Street Profits!

Raw returns and the Judgment Day make their entrance. The teams sort out and Priest starts against a fired up Montez Ford. It’s a preview of the US Championship Chamber match as the two tie up. Priest puts Ford in the corner, fans chant “We Want Mami!” Priest ROCKS Ford, KNEES him low again and again, then tells fans Mami ain’t here. Priest DECKS Ford, then brings him back up. Priest whips, runs Ford over, and then tags in Finn. Priest snapmares Ford for Finn to slingshot stomp! Finn digs his boot in with a cocky cover, TWO! Finn is annoyed but he soaks up the cheers and jeers from Brooklyn.

Finn ROCKS Ford with a right, has him on ropes, and brings Ford up to kick. Ford blocks, spins Finn then ENZIGURIS Finn down! Tag to Dawkins, the Profits whip and DROPKICK Finn down! Priest runs in but into a DOUBLE FLAPJACK! The Profits double clothesline Priest up and out and Brooklyn fires up while Raw goes picture in picture.

Finn and Priest stagger up and regroup with Dom at the ramp. Priest goes to a corner, Finn helps him, but Dawkins goes out to ROCK Priest! Ford ROCKS Finn, the ring count starts up, but Ford SMACKS Finn off the apron. Finn staggers around the way, Ford pursues, and Finn wants mercy. Fans fire up as Ford swaggers, then kicks Finn low. Ford has Finn against barriers and fans fire up more, so Ford CHOPS! Ford mocks Finn’s pain, pushes him into the ring, then shoulders in. Slingshot sunset flip, but Finn rolls through to basement dropkick! Finn tags Priest, he DECKS Dawkins off the apron, then CHOKES Ford on the ropes!

The ref has to keep Dawkins but then counts at Priest. Priest lets off at 4, distracts the ref, and Dom gets a sucker punch in! Dawkins protests more but Dom soaks up the heat. Priest eggs Brooklyn on, drags Ford up and tags Finn in. They kick, KICK and SCISSOR KICK! Cover, TWO! Finn keeps on Ford with a snapmare, then he drives an elbow in before wrapping on a chinlock! Finn thrashes Ford around, keeps him down, but Ford fights up. Finn knees low, bumps Ford off buckles, and throws hands. Tag to Priest, he brings Ford around to suplex, BROKEN ARROW! Ford flounders, Priest drags him to a cover, TWO!

Priest keeps cool as he stalks Ford to a corner. Priest ROCKS Ford in the back with a forearm, then hoists him up top. Priest CLUBS Ford, drags him out into a crucifix lift, but Ford fights! Ford throws elbows, Raw returns to single picture, but Priest LCUBS Ford! Priest climbs up and stands Ford up, SUPER BACK SUPLEX CROSSBODY! Ford turns it around at the last second and both men are down! Brooklyn rallies up, both men crawl, hot tags to Finn and Dawkins! Dawkins rallies on Finn, ROCKS Priest, then ROCKS Finn! Dawkins whips Finn, Finn reverses but Dawkins BLASTS Priest off the apron!

Dawkins hurdles Finn and FLYING ELBOWS! Then he kicks low, underhooks, SILENCER! Fans fire up with Dawkins and he sees Finn go to a corner. CYCLONE- NO, Finn dodges! But Ford tags in! Dawkins pops Finn up into a GERMAN SUPLEX from Ford! Cover, Priest breaks it! Dom is relieved but Ford drags Finn over. Tag to Dawkins, and Dawkins hoists Finn up in an Electric Chair! Ford climbs up top, BLOCKBUSTER DOOMSDAY! Ford SHOTGUNS Priest, Dawkins covers Finn, TWO!! Finn survives but Dawkins just stares Dom down. Dawkins sees Priest get in, ROCKS him then whips him out!

“This is Awesome!” as Ford FLIES to take out Priest!!  But now Dom gets on the apron! Dawkins TOSSES Dom into the ring! Fans fire up and Dawkins hits a POUNCE! Dom bails out, Finn hits a SLINGBLADE! Finn aims, runs, and SHOTGUNS Dawkins into buckles! Dawkins falls into the drop zone and Finn hurries up top! COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Judgment Day wins!

Winners: The Judgment Day, by pinfall

Dom raises Finn’s hand, having been the insurance policy for the team. And then Priest SUPERKICKS Ford! Fans boo as the Judgment Day mugs Ford! But here comes EDGE! AND Beth! The Grit Couple gets in, Edge fires off fists with Finn! Finn goes tumbling, Dawkins whips Dom but Dom tosses Dawkins! Fans fire up as Edge sends Finn into barriers! Beth CLOBBERS Dom! Beth chicken wings Dom just like last week! But Rhea IS here! She CLOBBERS Beth from behind! And then pump handle, RIPTIDE!! Dom says that’s what happens! Mami is here, but Edge rushes back in! The Judgment Day runs off, but there will be no running in Montreal.

Will the Grit Couple avenge themselves on Saturday? Will Ford be able to rise up and have gold? Or will there be no denying that the Judgment Day runs things now?

 

Adam Pearce is back in the ring.

He goes over the contract, and here comes BROCK LESNAR! Brooklyn fires up as The Beast makes his way to the ring for this contract signing just days before he and Bobby Lashley go around one more time. Lesnar goes into the ring, Pearce officially announces this is the signing for the rubber match between the All Mighty, and the man who already signed this contract last week in Brock Lesnar. But one signature is not good enough, so we need the other one right now. Lesnar has Pearce get to the point. He’s signed the thing, so all we need is Bobby. “Bobby! Get your ass out here and sign this contract!”

Lashley makes his way out, but with security! Lesnar sighs and even smirks because about a dozen guards line the ramp, and then a couple production crew members bring out another table and another chair. They set those up on stage and Lashley finally makes his own way out. Lashley grins as he has a mic of his own. Pearce isn’t sure what this is, but Lashley can come to the ring- Oh, hold on, Pearce, things aren’t going down like that. This isn’t the Brock Lesnar Show! This isn’t Brock wants this, Brock wants that, Brock gets this and gets that. Brock wants a contract signing, so Pearce rolled out the red carpet for him.

But Lashley is sick of this! Because the way he sees it, whenever he and Lesnar face off, Lashley leaves Lesnar pinned, unconscious, and eliminated! So Lashley’s in the driver’s seat, we do things on HIS terms! Lesnar still tells Bobby to get his ass in the ring. No, this is on his terms. He took a look at the contract, his agent took a look at the contract, his manager looked at the contract, and his representative look at the contract. Hell, he had his kids look at the contract! Then come sign it! Lashley says he isn’t so sure he’s going to. Lesnar tells Lashley, “You get your ass up here and sign this contract.” Fans chant “Bobby’s Scared!” and Lesnar likes that.

Lashley grins but Lesnar says if Lashley doesn’t sign the contract, Lesnar will just go and beat his ass unconscious and sign it for him. Lashley says Lesnar doesn’t have to balls to! Lesnar grabs the contract off the table, steps outside of the ring, and makes his way up the ramp. Lesnar CLOBBERS guard after guard, throws a few more aside, then runs right at Lashley! Lashley BACK DROPS Lesnar to the stage! Lashley takes off his shirt, to SPEAR Lesnar back down!! The All Mighty suckered Lesnar in, and now he picks up the contract. Lashley puts it on his table to sign, then pushes it into Lesnar’s hands.

Fans are torn but the Rocky Mountain Machine has made this official! Will he just make Elimination Chamber the newest example of him brutalizing The Beast?

 

Piper Niven VS Mia Yim!

The Scottish Viper has tried reasserting her dominance but it hasn’t gone her way. She tried bullying Candice LeRae for costing her a spot in the Women’s Elimination Chamber match, but Michin got in her way. Will Piper pulverize Mia to prove she’s not to be messed with? Or will Mia remind Piper that she’s the Head Baddie in Charge?

The bell rings and the two run in, and Piper CLOBBER Mia! Mia goes to a corner, Piper fires off forearms! The ref counts, Piper lets off and then swings again, but Mia dodges. Mia clotheslines but Piper doesn’t budge! Mia ROUNDHOUSES, Piper wobbles, and Mia scoops!? Piper’s too much and Mia falls over! Cover, TWO! Mia runs, but Piper scoops her to a tilt-o-whirl DDT! Piper wobbles, Mia fires up and Brooklyn is with her! Mia runs in to CHOP! And ROCK! And CHOP! Repeat! Mia fires off again and again, machine gun CHOPS, then runs in, into an URENAGE! Piper snarls, runs, and SENTONS! Cover, TWO!

Piper pushes Mia around, drags her up, and SLAPS her! Piper kicks Mia around, Mia goes to ropes, and Mia hits back. Piper SLAPS Mia again, stomps her back down, then stands on her! The ref counts, fans boo, but Piper lets off at 4. Pier smirks while Mia sputters and drags herself up the ropes. Piper brings Mia around to SLAP her again! Piper CHOPS Mia in the corner! Piper scoops, Mia slips free, and Mia HEEL KICKS! Then wrench and EAT- NO, Piper powers out, whips, but Mia ducks ‘n’ dodges! Into a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, Piper wins!

Winner: Piper Niven, by pinfall

The “Loch Ness Slam” puts Mia away, will Piper become the monster that devours the roster until she is champion?

 

Backstage interview with Baron Corbin.

Cathy Kelley brings up JBL’s “unsettling words” for Corbin and ended their business partnership. What is Corbin’s response to all that? Corbin says it’s been a rather depressing week and- Wait, there’s word something is happening in the ring! It’s SAMI ZAYN! Fans fire up as Sami paces around with a mic in hand! “Hey! Look, I’m not here to hold up the show. But there’s something I need to say, and there’s someone I need to say it to. And I’m not sure I’m gonna have the chance after this Saturday at Elimination Chamber in Montreal. So… Cody Rhodes. I know you’re back there, buddy. If you’ll please indulge me, and come to this ring right now.”

Fans are a little torn, but here comes the American Nightmare! Fans sing along with his theme, and the pyro goes off as Cody makes his way down the ramp. Cody goes to the ring, gets a mic of his own, and fans fire up as he stands face to face with Sami. Cody says, “Sami, welcome to Raw. What do you wanna talk about?” Sami says last week on Raw, Cody had this verbal exchange with Paul Heyman and it set the world on fire, and for good reason. There was a lot to unpack there. But there was one thing Cody said that has been replaying in Sami’s mind over and over and over and he can’t stop thinking about it. It is when Cody said that it looks more and more like it’ll be Cody VS SAMI at WrestleMania.

Sami came all this way here to look Cody dead in the eyes. Sami wants to hear it from Cody. Tell him face to face, man to man, right now. Was that just lip service? Or does Cody believe Sami can beat Roman Reigns? Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” because they all believe! As for Cody, he says, “Sami, my bandwidth is really dedicated to what I’ve been saying, winning the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. So I’m sorry if I don’t have a lot left over to BS you. When I said I think you can beat Roman Reigns, that you will beat Roman Reigns, I meant it. When I said that you could be, and most likely would be, my opponent at WrestleMania, I believed it!”

Fans cheer that, and chant, “This is Awesome!” But Cody continues to say that, “Respectfully, I don’t think that’s what this is about here. Does it really matter what I believe? I think what matters is, what do you believe?” Does Sami Zayn believe in Sami Zayn beating Roman Reigns?  Sami says, “Do you want the truth?” Fans sing “Ole~ ole ole ole~! Ole~ ole~!” and Sami says the truth is, Sami doesn’t know. Sami doesn’t! Because Cody hasn’t seen what Sami has seen. Sami has been in the trenches with The Bloodline, he’s stood shoulder to shoulder with Roman Reigns for nine MONTHS. He has been in the dugout making game plans! The Bloodline always finds a way!

And this thing about Roman being in God Mode isn’t a catchphrase. Roman is as good as he says he is, he is operating on a level higher than he has ever been before! Sami has SEEN it! Guys bigger than Sami, stronger than Sami, walk into a match with Roman, fully believing in their hearts that they were the one, and every single one has gone down! So now Sami is supposed to believe that after all this, almost 900 DAYS, that Sami is the one? Fans cheer, but Sami says “Look, if you’re asking me if I believe I am capable of beating Roman Reigns, yes! Yes I believe that! If you’re asking me if I believe I am capable of becoming Universal Champion, yes I believe that!

“If you’re asking me if I think I am worthy of being WrestleMania main event material, YES I BELIEVE THAT! I have to believe that! I have to believe that with every fiber of my being! Because if I don’t believe that, no one else will, Cody. But if you’re asking me if I actually think that I’m gonna be the one walking out of Montreal as the new Undisputed Universal Champion… I don’t know. Okay, Cody? I don’t know!” Fans chant “YOU CAN DO IT!” but Cody speaks up. “So, you don’t know? That’s what you’re saying to me, you don’t know? It seems like everybody here knows!

“It seems like your hometown of Montreal, where they watched you as an upstart wrestler, and they’re gonna be chanting your name, it seems like they know. I haven’t been where you been, I haven’t watched Roman Reigns up close, but I watched him from the sidelines. I watched him when he became champion until now. And you’re right, everybody has fallen. But here’s the other thing: there’s dissention in the Bloodline for the first time ever in his Bloodline, and that’s because of you.

“There’s cracks in the armor, holes in the scales, and that’s because of you! The idea that the greatest champion of our generation could possibly be dethrone becoming a reality is because of you! This awesome moment in time, that we’re all here for, is because of you! You wanna say that Roman Reigns is God Mode? Well put it on a T-shirt and print it, it looks real good there. But Roman Reigns is a MAN, Sami. You crack him open at the Elimination Chamber and you find out for yourself! I won the 2023 Royal Rumble, I punched my ticket, Michael Cole said it on commentary, he said ‘Finish the story! Finish the story! Finish the story!’

“I intend to finish my story, YOU need to finish YOURS!” Fans fire up for that and even Sami looks inspired. Cody says one more thing: “I don’t wanna see you on Raw next Monday. Because I’d rather see you at WrestleMania!” Fans like the sound of that! Both men look to the sign, then look at each other. Has the American Nightmare just helped the Great Liberator find the fire he needs to pull off a Montreal miracle?

 

Nikki Cross walks up to Carmella backstage.

The Fabulous Princess asks where Crazy Cross has been, but Nikki says she was playing hide and seek with her new friend. What new friend? Also, back up, she’s way too close. They just have to get through this Six Woman Tag that they were forced into, and then focus on Saturday and the Elimination Chamber. Speaking of which, where is their other teammate? Asuka sneaks up behind Mella with her Kabuki mask. Asuka takes it off to reveal her demon clown mask and Mella can’t believe how weird they all are. Nikki and Asuka lock eyes, but then Candice LeRae walks in. Candice asks just what is up with Nikki. She was stalking her, what is going on?

Nikki reaches out, Candice asks her not to. Nikki just laughs as she walks away. Will Mella and her Raw roster mates be able to defend their home turf against SmackDown’s Liv Morgan, Raquel Rodriguez & Natalya?

 

Backstage interview with Baron Corbin, take two.

Cathy tries to talk with Corbin again, apologizing for earlier. Corbin has it all stop, because we all saw what happened last week. Corbin says he’s better off without JBL. JBL dragged him down, gave him bad advice, and hobbled around in the cowboy hat. That guy is the past. Forget about JBL. Corbin is going to remind us of who he is. He is so sick and tired of disrespect. Speaking of which, Cathy had an interview with Corbin earlier, but cut away for Sami Zayn. FOR SAMI ZAYN! Corbin hates to rain on the parade, but at Elimination Chamber, Roman Reigns DESTROYS Sami in front of his family and friends. “In no world does Sami Zayn beat Roman.”

But here’s a question: Do you know who the last person to beat Roman is? CORBIN! He did that! And now we look to the Royal Rumble. Corbin was blindsided by Brock Lesnar! Otherwise, Corbin would’ve punched his ticket to WrestleMania where he’d beat Roman again! But now Roman has another opponent that he will walk striaght through in Cody Rhodes. “A guy who takes eight months to go home and nurse a minor injury.” But Cody walks i n and hears that. Corbin says Cody was handed the #30 spot. Corbin just doesn’t get it, he’s not impressed, waht does everyone see in him? Cody’s a joke, his brother’s a joke, his DAD is a joke!

Cody fires off on Corbin! Fans fire up as the brawl goes into gorilla and then on stage! Cody wants a ref, he wants a match NOW! Cody whips Corbin into the tron! And then DECKS him down the ramp! Cody sends Corbin into railing! Off comes the tie, free souvenir! Cody fires hands, puts Corbin in the ring, but Corbin hits back! Corbin CLUBS Cody, thrashes him around, then says yeah, ring the bell!

Cody Rhodes VS Baron Corbin!

Corbin rushes in but Cody sends him out! Then Cody DIVES! In a suit! Cody throws off his suit shirt, drags Corbin up and throws more hands! Cody TOSSES Corbin into the timekeeper’s area! Cody refreshes the ring count, storms back over, but Corbin SMACKS Cody off the barriers! Corbin then scoops Cody, but Cody slips free to POST him! Cody slides back in to again refresh the count, and fans taunt “BUM ASS CORBIN!” Corbin ROCKS Cody, brings him to the desk, but Cody throws hands! They brawl up there, Corbin falls over and hits barriers. Cody goes right after him, to RAM him into steel steps!

Corbin slides into the ring but Cody is right after him! Cody goes up the corner, leaps over Corbin, and kicks low! RHODES UPPERCUT! Corbin wobbles, CODY CUTTER!! Fans fire up with Cody, he waits on Corbin to stand, CROSS RHODES!! Cover, Cody wins!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

Cody wins in slacks, he isn’t slacking off before WrestleMania! Will the American Nightmare be unstoppable until he finishes his story?

 

Team SmackDown meets at gorilla.

Natalya cannot get over that Becky and Bayley are weaseling their way into the Elimination Chamber match. These three earned their way in, it just blows her mind. Liv gets what Natty is saying, she really does, but as far as she’s concerned, Becky or Bayley will be just another person to beat on her Road to WrestleMania. So then, Liv doesn’t see Natty as a threat? That’s a huge, huge mistake. Liv wasn’t saying that but- Raquel shouts over their arguing and tells them to focus on tonight. Save everything else for Saturday. Liv says okay, just #WatchHer. The team heads out, will SmackDown win this away game before arriving in Montreal?

Six Woman Tag: Asuka, Nikki Cross & Carmella VS Liv Morgan, Raquel Rodriguez & Natalya!

Raw returns and Ricky Desperado makes her entrance, followed by the Queen of Harts. Then Team Raw makes their entrance, starting with Mella, followed by Crazy Cross, and then The Empress of Tomorrow. The teams sort out and we start with Raquel and Nikki. Fans rally up, the two circle, and they tie up. Nikki waistlocks, hops on and thrashes Raquel around! Raquel throws Nikki off and Nikki snarls. Nikki runs in, but into a scoop! FALL AWAY SLAM! Nikki grins, Mella tags in, and Mella talks smack. Raquel shows punch but Mella freaks out. Mella calls out Natty, fans rally for Natty, and Raquel tags Natty in.

Natty and Mella circle, push each other, and then Natty picks Mella up! Mella sunset flips, natty slips out and steps through to have the SHARPSHOOTER! Mella endures, reaches out, but Nikki slips in to CLOBBER Natty! Asuka gets in, too, and now it’s a brawl between the six women! Fans fire up, Liv and Raquel throw out Nikki and Asuka, then Natty kicks Mella out. Fans fire up and Raw goes picture in picture.

Team SmackDown dares Team Raw to come back. Nikki snarls, Mella and Asuka regroup. Mella steps in, Natty rushes her and the chase is on! Mella slides in, N atty pursues, but Mella FABULOUS KICKS her down! Mella smiles and soaks up the cheers and jeers. Mella drags Natty up, bumps her off her boot, then moonwalks away.

Natty throws body shots, ROCKS Mella, then scopos,. Mella slips out to throw Natty down by her hair! Cover, TWO!

Mella clamps on a body scissors and squeezes Natty! Natty endures, Raw returns to single picture, and fans rally up. Mella taunts Natty, squeezes tighter, but Natty throws elbows into the knees! Natty turns around to rain down fists! Mella hits back, and has a GUILLOTINE! Natty endures, fights up, and powers free to SLAM Mella down! Natty and Mella crawl, reach out, hot tags to Nikki and Liv! Liv CLOBBERS Nikki, CLOBBERS her again, and then kicks, KICKS and ENZIGURIS! Liv kips up and fans fire up!

The Alpha Academy talks backstage.

Otis is having himself a heavily-covered-in-mustard hot dog while Chad Gable says this time last year, they were Raw Tag Team Champions. But then something went wrong. Gable rewrote the curriculum and- Wait, is Otis even listening? Otis says the best hot dogs in the world come from Coney Island! Gable takes the dog away and says, “You know this are terrible for you, right?” Otis says yes. But the nitrates and toxins, yuck. Gable throws the hot dog away, and it hits Mansoor in the face! Mansöôr is furious! Maxxine Dupri introduces herself, and lets Otis know she is talent director of THE Maximum Male Models modeling agency.

Maxxine says they’re looking for “the face and physique” for their new campaign. Has he ever considered modeling? Gable mistakes her question being directed at her. Gable has in fact done some modeling in the past, but he takes care of his body like a Greed god. He’s more of a role model. Maybe a hand model. Mace and Mansoor laugh, but Maxxine hushes them. And she corrects Gable, she was talking to Otis. Or, “Otīs,” as she puts it. Oits likes the sound of that. Maxxine gives him her card, and says they’ll be in touch. Oh, that’s good networking. Bad watermark, though. But then Bronson Reed walks in, and chuckles as he actually dwarfs Otis.

Bronson Reed heads out, ready for his match with Mustafa Ali. Will the Beacon be washed away by a Tsunami in Brooklyn?

 

Bronson Reed VS Mustafa Ali!

Tonight’s already been big, but now it’s COLOSSAL! Will Bronson prove he’s the top dog in the WWE? Or will Ali be able to slow him down before the US Championship Elimination Chamber?

The bell rings and the two circle. Ali avoids being cornered and he CHOPS! But it’s Ali’s hand that gets hurt! Then Bronson CLOBBERS Ali! Bronson drags Ali up, scoops him, but Ali slips free. Ali goes to a corner, goes up and over, then keeps moving. But Bronson BODY CHECKS Ali! Bronson flexes and roars as Ali goes to another corner. Bronson runs but into a BOOT! Ali KICKS Bronson’s arm, then runs! Ali dropkicks the legs out, fires off haymakers, but Bronson shoves him away. Ali comes back but Bronson TOSSES him up and out! Bronson goes out to the apron, to FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE Ali down!

Ali flounders and Bronson looms over hm. Bronson drags Ali up, puts him in the ring, but Ali KANGAROO KICKS! Bronson wobbles, Ali runs and SHOTGUNS Bronson off the apron! Bronson’s still on his feet, though, so Ali goes to the apron. Ali LEAPS but into Bronson’s arms! Bronson CHUCKS Ali into the timekeeper’s area! Ali crashes down among the spare chairs and fans lose their minds! Bronson tosses chairs aside to drag Ali back to ringside. Bronson drags Ali up and puts him in at 8 of 10. Ali clamps onto a leg, but Bronson just laughs. Bronson drags Ali up, reels him in, and hits a- NO, Ali slips free!

Ali dodges, goes up the corner, FLYING DDT!! Cover, ONE!! Bronson still has power, so Ali hurries to the apron. Ali somersaults in, but into a LARIAT! Bronson goes up the corner, for the TSUNAMI!! Cover, Bronson wins!

Winner: Bronson Reed, by pinfall

Ali just got squashed! Will Bronson do the same to five other men and take the US Championship for his own?

 

Backstage interview with Edge & Beth Phoenix.

Cathy is with the Grit Couple, and notes the earlier brawl with Judgment Day. Any comments on what happened? Edge has one. “I’m tired of this. For a year now, week after week, back and forth with the Judgment Day, and quite frankly, I’m sick of them. But they pulled one over on us. An old trick from the Rated R Playbook, but it’s not gonna matter. At Elimination Chamber, we show them exactly what’s gonna happen, and it’s not gonna be pretty.” Beth adds, “We’re gonna remind the Judgment Day why exactly we’re called The Grit Couple.” Beth and Edge head out, will they finally tear down what Edge started?

 

The Miz heads to the ring!

The Hollywood A-Lister is already dressed in his ring gear because he knows he has his match with Rick Boogs tonight. But first, he’ll host another episode of MizTV, with his guest being the Visionary, the Revolutionary, Seth Freakin’ Rollins! What will The Architect have to say just days before he enters the Elimination Chamber? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Miz welcomes us back to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, and says he wants to talk about Elimination Chamber! First and foremost, why is he NOT IN IT?! But he told himself he wasn’t gonna make this about himself, so he won’t. Instead, he introduces his guest, the Architect of this business, the mastermind who is that freakin’ good! But where is Rollins’ head? In the Chamber? Or in the social media squabble he has with Logan Paul? Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! Rollins makes his entrance and Miz rocks out to the theme. Wait, Rollins is wearing Astro boots?

Brooklyn sings Rollins’ song, and Miz is speechless over seeing Rollins strut around in those goofy red boots. Rollins takes a seat, fans sing some more, and Miz asks, “Are you guys done?” They’re not, they keep going, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Miz says they only get ten minutes! So to get going, Miz speaks for everyone when he asks, “WHAT’RE THOSE~!?” Rollins gets a kick out of that, and Rollins, “It’s called STYLE, Miz! I know you wouldn’t know a damn thing about it! HAHAHAHA!” Rollins sits back down and Miz hopes Rollins won’t wear those in the Elimination Chamber.

But speaking of, the Chamber is unforgiving, and it needs undivided focus. But Rollins’ focus must be split between Logan Paul and the United States title. Rollins tells Miz that the “fine folks of Brooklyn don’t wanna talk about that dumpster fire of a human being! No…! They came here tonight to sing, baby~!” The fans do sing, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Miz says if he wanted to hear them sing, he’d listen to someone who is good, like Taylor Swift. The fans are just jealous that Miz has tickets and they don’t. But Miz doesn’t care what the fans want when the fans don’t know what they want, he just knows what Miz wants.

And what Miz wants is to talk about Logan Paul. Logan called Rollins a clown, and now he has the boots to match. Rollins says that he doesn’t know how Miz grew up, but how Rollins was raised, “If you ain’t got nothing nice to say, don’t say nothing at all.” Miz figures Rollins’ mom would be disappointed then. Because let’s talk about that. Rollins got eliminated from the Royal Rumble BY LOGAN PAUL! And yet Rollins talks about him on Twitter, Instagram, on the Pat McAfee Show, but now here on TV? Why? Why won’t he talk about Logan in the ring or in the WWE or in front of the fans here?

“SHUT UP, MIKE!!” Fans echo that, “SHUT UP, MIKE!” but Rollins says fine, if Miz wants to know why, WrestleMania is why! Look at that sign. Rollins entire life, all he’s ever wanted is to main event and headline WrestleMania! To be on the marquee and to close the show. THAT matters to Rollins. It matters to Miz, it matters to every single person in this arena, “because we love this!” Rollins calms himself and the fans sing for him again. Rollins continues with, “And I love that. But you know who doesn’t love this? You know who doesn’t give a damn about that dream? Logan Paul.”

Rollins says Logan Paul is selfish, soulless, and only cares about lining his own pockets! Logan just wants to be famous and he doesn’t care at whose expense. So Rollins isn’t saying Logan’s name in this ring is because he doesn’t deserve it! Fans agree with that! “All Logan Paul wants, all he wants in life, is attention, but what he needs is to have his teeth kicked in.” Miz says Rollins might be a bit jealous. Rollins says we all know Miz is stupid, but he can’t be that stupid. Rollins isn’t jealous of Logan Paul. But Miz says he is NOT stupid! Fans chant, “YES YOU ARE!” Rollins tells Brooklyn to help him out. Is Miz stupid? “YES! YES! YES!”

Miz says he is NOT stupid!! He and Rollins are the only two-time Grand Slam Champions in the WWE, but Miz is the only one who has headlined WrestleMania! Yeah, the guy you’re calling stupid headlined WrestleMania, Rollins’ dream, something Rollins won’t get in his lifetime, because of Logan Paul! So Rollins wants to stomp Logan Paul with his stupid Super Mario boots, huh? Rollins DECKS Miz!! And then CLOBBERS him with a chair! Fans fire up as Rollins aims from the corner! But Austin Theory drags Rollins outta the ring!! The Now appeared outta nowhere, but Rollins SMACKS him off the desk, and BOOTS him!

Miz WRECKS Rollins with a dropkick, then SMACKS him off the desk! Miz puts Rollins in the ring, full nelsons, but Rollins arm-drags free and SUPERKICKS! Those boots work after all! Fans fire up and Rollins aims from the corner. CURB STOMP!! But Theory gets back in! Fireman’s carry, A TOWN DOWN!! Theory stands over Rollins, picks up his US Championship, and holds it over Rollins. “How many times do you gotta do this? You are the past! I’m done with you! And at Elimination Chamber, you’re gonna realize, we are in the Now!” Will Theory prove he’s the one everyone should focus on heading into WrestleMania?

 

Rick Boogs pumps up!

We can spot MVP talking with Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin in the background, but Elias walks up to Boogs. The Drifter says he has heard all the comparisons between the two of them, from Elias’ amazing physique to Boogs’ impressive one, to Elias’ chart topping songs to Boogs’ impressive musical talents. Now, there could be a lot of pressure being compared to the living legend of Elias, but Elias doesn’t want Boogs to worry. Boogs may be new on Raw, but if he loses to Miz tonight, don’t let it get you down. Boogs thanks Elias for that. Elias wishes Boogs good luck. And maybe, just maybe, they could do a collaboration one day.

Boogs says that is righteous! He was born and bred to rip and shred, and THICK RICK shreds Miz tonight! He is even more pumped! HE’S BOOGIN’ OUT!! But wait, Miz is out! How can Miz have his match with Boogs like this?

The Miz VS Rick Boogs!

Raw is picture in picture as the ring crew shifts things over from the MizTV set to normal ring, and that’s accompanied by a replay of what happened between Theory and Rollins. Miz finally comes to and crawls his way to ropes. Miz drags himself up, but is rather dazed after that Astro boot stomp. Miz seems to remember what happened, and is upset. But then Boogs makes his entrance! Raw returns to single picture as Boogs slides into the ring, but Miz gets a mic. “Hold on, hold on, hold on!” Miz tells the “meat head” to wait. Does he have any braincells up there between the two bulging veins in his head?

Did Boogs just see what happened? There’s no way they can have this match! Fans boo but Boogs checks with the ref. The bell rings, Miz protest, but Boogs hits an EXPLODER! Boogs hauls Miz up, wrenches and pump handles, for bicep curls! Fans count along and Boogs gets a set of ten in! And then he TOSSES Miz away! Fans fire up with Boogs, he scoops Miz and pops him up to a trophy lift! And then a PRESS SLAM! Cover, Boogs wins!

Winner: Rick Boogs, by pinfall

Miz just went for a #BoogsCruise, and Brooklyn is ready to rock! Will Boogs shred his way to a WrestleMania moment?

 

Chelsea Green complains to Adam Pearce.

The Hot Mess knows he knows who she is! She is THE Chelsea Green, not some clown who deserves to be humiliated on national television! And after last week, both on Raw and SmackDown, she sent strongly worded emails to the General Managers. Pearce knows, because those emails came to him! And then he replied to those emails, saying he’d take that all under advisement. Because again, HE is the General Manager! Well, okay then. He will surely treat her like the star that she is. She was NOT ready for Asuka, so she demands a rematch! She should be in the Chamber! How about tonight, in that Triple Threat, it’s a Fatal 4 Way!

Yeah, not happening. Then, she isn’t leaving until he puts her in! He raises a hand but she says if he touches her, she’ll scream. She feels very threatened right now. Pearce leaves, even though this is his office. How is Pearce going to handle such a diva on the Road to WrestleMania?

 

Backstage interview with The Judgment Day, take two.

Byron is now with the fully assembled Judgment Day and says after that surprise ambush on Beth Phoenix, does this mean they have the upper hand going into Elimination Chamber? Finn tells Byron that the Judgment Day always has the upper hand. They beat Edge & Beth again, and it’s starting to freak Finn out. It feels like Edge & Beth like being beat. But fine by Finn, cuz at the Chamber, it’ll just happen again and again and again. Dom says the thing about Edge & Beth and even his pathetic father, Rey Mysterio, is that they were good. But the game has passed them by.

Priest says they’ proved that the JD is the top of the game. Priest will walk out of the Chamber the NEW United States Champion. Then at WrestleMania, Rhea walks in challenger, but she walks out the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion. Rhea says she couldn’t have put it better herself. Charlotte Flair keeps saying she’s on a different level, but the only level she’s on is the one below Rhea. Rhea will rise and take the SmackDown Women’s title at WrestleMania, and that rise starts this Saturday when she and Finn “beat the living crap out of The Grit Couple.” The Judgement Day heads out, Dom even taking Byron’s mic. But will the Road to WrestleMania belong to the Judgment Day?

 

Triple Threat: Bianca Belair VS Bayley VS Becky Lynch!

The E-S-T wants to T-E-S-T herself against the B-E-S-T the WWE has to offer, and she’s doing that right here tonight! She’s faced and beaten The Role Model, she’s faced and beaten The Man, but can she beat them both at the same time? Or will someone win their way into a historic SEVEN Women Elimination Chamber match?

Raw goes picture in picture as Becky makes her entrance. The bell rings and Bayley talks trash with Becky. They start shoving, then Bianca DECKS Bayley! Bayley bails out, Bianca and Becky both point to the WrestleMania sign. They circle, tie up, and Bianca headlocks. Becky powers up and out, but Bianca runs her over. Bianca looms over Becky, runs, but Becky avoids the handspring moonsault. Bianca eggs Becky on, Becky runs in, Bianca hurdles, but Becky catches Bianca mid-jump to make it a FLAPJACK!

Torture rack! KISS OF DEATH onto Bayley!

Bianca pushes Becky away, covers Bayley, and Bianca wins!!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall (NO changes to the Women’s Elimination Chamber match)

The EST might have just proved she really is THE B-E-S-T in the WWE! She overcame two opponents, two interlopers, and even bowled over the six contenders coming for her title! Will it not even matter who comes out of the Elimination Chamber match? Or did all this only light a fire inside Liv, Raquel, Natty, Mella, Nikki and Asuka?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Raw, especially given it was a go-home show. Though, it also felt like a rather talkative Raw for even a three-hour program. Sami and Cody had a great promo segment to follow everything from both Raw and SmackDown last week, and it really fired fans up for the prospect of Cody VS Sami at Mania. But at the same time, I don’t foresee WWE changing their plans just on this fan reaction. They’re definitely locked in with Roman VS Cody, but the Bloodline story will definitely give us compelling stuff on Saturday so that Sami losing won’t sting that bad. I was a little surprised Cody had that brawl and then match with Corbin.

Corbin’s ongoing roller coaster ride is one of the stranger things in WWE, but maybe they realized his teaming with JBL wasn’t working the way it was meant to and they’re quickly rethinking this phase of Corbin’s career. Honestly, they gave up on “Bum Ass Corbin” too soon, and fans still chant that at him anyway. There was also a little redundancy in the promos from Judgment Day and Grit Couple after the tag match and brawling, but I suppose they needed to say what was said to hype the Mixed Tag. Judgment Day wins the tag match and the brawl, meaning the go-home math favors Edge & Beth winning, so chances are Finn takes the pin as Rhea needs to stay strong.

The contract signing segment was pretty good, though I think Lesnar lost his train of thought at the start. I do like that Lashley trolled Lesnar by having his own table at the top of the stage. I can’t remember who did that before in the WWE but it worked out here. Lashley standing tall signals that Lesnar will find a way to win at Elimination Chamber, since Lashley really has gotten the better of Lesnar before this. Then maybe we get an even bigger battle to finish this off at WrestleMania. And we got a fairly hilarious promo from Alpha Academy and Maximum Male Models. Maxxine finally offers “Otīs” a spot in the faction, I can’t wait to see where this goes.

Chelsea Green continues to build that Karen Heat- Er, Heel Heat, and as I said for SmackDown, her character would’ve been the perfect thing to help Lacey Evans come off as a Face. Lacey Evans’ character was about putting in the work, before Vince ruined things by going through with his idiotic plan, but maybe there’s still hope of Face Lacey should she interact with Chelsea. Good match out of Piper and Mia, but it makes sense Piper wins as she’s building back up after finally becoming Piper again. Between her interaction with Mia and Candice last week, and Nikki creeping around Candice now, I wonder if they’re going to reunite Piper and Nikki as a team.

Great stuff out of MizTV. For one, I would never have guessed Rollins would show up in those goofy Astro Boy boots. But also, great passion out of Rollins as Miz brings up Logan Paul and that growing feud. Rollins is surely still going to have a match with Logan Paul at WrestleMania, but the things Rollins said definitely fit a lot of the feelings wrestlers and wrestling fans have about wrestling, and also just feelings a lot of people have about Logan Paul. As such, don’t expect Rollins to win the US Championship Chamber match. But also, since Austin Theory stood tall in beating Rollins down, I would think someone new is gonna have that title.

And I would love if it was Bronson Reed. He had a great match with Ali, though it was basically a squash. Bronson came back to WWE after riding high in NJPW, so surely HHH promised him something. The US Championship coming out of Elimination Chamber and probably even through WrestleMania, that would be good stuff to promise. And back to Miz, of course he loses to Boogs again. Boogs and Elias are also building to something, and this story could be the substitute for what was meant to happen between Elias and Matt Riddle. Boogs and Elias can try to be a team, but then Elias’ pride will force them to be enemies, and we get a pretty fun match for like the Mania go-home or even Mania preshow.

And of course, just great stuff out of the Raw Women’s Championship story. Great Six Woman Tag from the Chamber entrants, and I absolutely love that Asuka turned on her team to beat down everyone. Now, go-home math would suggest Asuka isn’t winning, but I would also love to see Asuka defy the go-home math and earn that WrestleMania match. We got a really good opening promo segment from Becky, Bayley, Pearce and Bianca, and that Triple Threat was great stuff, too.

Now, nothing against Bianca, but I would’ve had Becky win tonight’s Triple Threat. Honestly, what’s keeping them from making the Elimination Chamber more than six people? You start with three, add the other four as you go, and that’d make things even more chaotic and even more impressive to win. And that goes for having the seventh be Becky, because then whoever eliminates Becky gets that rub. But I suppose this is a sign that the plan is for Becky and some mystery teammates to take on DMG CTRL at Mania, which is also fine.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Hook falls, sputters, and the ref has Shane stay back to check. That could’ve been a liver shot but Shane hauls Hook up. Shane CHOPS Hook in the career, and Hook sputters as he goes along ropes. Shane taunts Hook, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS again! Hook staggers to another corner, Shane taunts him, “I thought you were the man!” Shane BODY BLOWS again and Hook coughs. Hook fires hands in return, backs Shane down, then reels Shane in! Shane’s too big for the suplex, though!

Shane shoves Hook, and BODY BLOWS! Hook falls to the mat, but Shane drags him back up. Shane HEADBUTTS Hook, Hook is dazed, and Shane says he thought Hook was a killer. Shane says to bow down to the killer that’s badder! Shane CHOPS Hook, suplexes him, and hangs him out to dry!

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight.

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool!

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee digs his boots in at the ropes, scrapes Shibata out of the ring, then soaks up the heat.

Lee goes out after Shibata, RAMS him into railing, then taunts everyone while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around. Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Angelico DECKS Garcia! Angelico hauls Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia slips free and kicks! Then TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! The fans fire up while both men are down! Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing!

AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again. Storm drags AZM back up, bumps her off buckles, then fires off CHOPS! Storm TOSSES AZM by her hair! The ref reprimands but Storm steps on AZM in the corner!

Storm drags AZM up, scoops, and SIDEWALK SLAMS! Cover, TWO! AZM is still in this but Storm grabs arms to put AZM in a motorcycle stretch. AZM endures, so Storm shifts to a chinlock, but AZM still fights! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Storm lets go at 4, and she paces around AZM. Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her! AZM fights free, blocks a kick, LEG TRAP GERMAN! AZM puts Storm in a drop zone while the fans are dueling! AZM goes up top, takes aim, and DIVING DOUBLE STOMPS!! Cover, TWO!! Storm survives and AZM can’t believe it! AZM fires herself back up, reels Storm in, but Storm wrenches out to SKY HIGH! Cover, TWO!! Storm throws a fit then storms around. Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

Claudio gets a chair and he runs off the DCF, but the damage has been done! Will the American Dragon be able to recover in time for Dynasty?


My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
