The Miz heads to the ring.

Phoenix has mixed reactions as the Host of WrestleMania, the Hollywood A-Lister, is here to host his show, MizTV. He welcomes us to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, and says the WrestleMania energy is here! Because you all will bare witness the Most Must-See Master of Ceremonies, the host of WrestleMania, HIM! And on tonight’s special WrestleMania edition of MizTV, we get to the bottom of one of the most heated rivalries in all of WWE! Welcome his guests to the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, Becky Lynch & Lita, as well as Trish Stratus! Trish comes out first, but then here come the legend and The Man!

Fans fire up because Phoenix just entered the Big Time. They join Mix in the ring and the champs hold up the belts. Miz has the fans give it up one more time as they take their seats. Tonight, Becky goes 1v1 with Iyo Sky, so he’ll start with her. Damage CTRL has made Becky’s life a living hell, to where she’s needed back-up in the forms of two legends. But The Man usually works alone. What does it feel like to admit she can’t do it herself and had to call in reinforcements? Fans boo but Becky says that’s right, she IS The Man. Just like Miz is a man, and Phoenix, AZ knows that Miz sounds more like an insecure man with notoriously tiny balls.

Fans chant “TINY BALLS!” at Miz but he raises his hand. “They are not tiny. They are massive. Verified by my wife.” Well, must be nice to know Maryse didn’t get around much before Miz. And anyway, Miz is right that DMG CTRL have been a thorn in the side since SummerSlam. They put Becky on the shelf. made it that she couldn’t look after her child, and that it was the toughest two months of her life. She thought she ended this at WarGames, but they kept coming back like the vermin that they are. And so yes, Becky doesn’t get along with too many people. But there are two people here that she respects more than anyone. And no, Miz isn’t one of them.

So when those people fight for Becky, Becky fights for them. Fans cheer but Miz has things move along. Lita, Trish, why now? Yeah, go ahead, cheer. Fans cheer, and Miz asks why Lita & Trish made comebacks just to play back-ups. Lita says that she isn’t back-up. She’s one half of the tag team champions. But she does know that- Here comes DMG CTRL. Bayley has the mic to say that enough. Miz is “surprised” that their opponents would show up. Bayley has Miz stop, because she has something to say. And she tells Phoenix “you idiots” to shut up with the booing. The fans just boo more.

Bayley is sick and tired of hearing the three others acting like this is just another match. To DMG CTRL, this is their life. Every single step they’ve taken since SummerSlam has led here. And the legends are here acting like they still mean something, when they only meant something about 20 years ago. Well, that title on Lita’s shoulder means she means something here and now. Bayley says at one point, this would’ve been the ultimate dream match. Going up against someone she came up with in the business, and two of her heroes. Two of DMG CTRL’s heroes. But now, it is a different kind of dream. “What?!”

“I SAID IT’S A DIFFERNET KIND OF DREAM!” Not that these fans know anything, they can’t do crap! And now, the dream is to take out the top women of this division, the one that everyone brags about, and two Hall of Famers, all in the same night. And then what?! Because Bayley goes on and on but does nothing! And she has Kai & Sky, they haven’t been doing anything! Kai was a TWO TIME Tag Team Champ! Iyo is one of the greatest in NXT! And what’re they doing? NOTHING! Nothing but being lackeys! And all DMG CTRL is doing is the same old tired stuff since SummerSlam. You haven’t done anything!

We thought this was gonna end at WarGames, in a steel cage, when Becky took these titles. But it hasn’t, so it can only end at WrestleMania! Becky slams the mic down! Tensions are high ahead of Becky VS Sky, will it all explode before Hollywood?

Becky Lynch w/ Lita & Trish Stratus VS Iyo Sky w/ DMG CTRL!

Raw returns and the two rush in! Becky DECKS Sky, bumps her off buckles and stomps away! The ref counts, DMG CTRL protests and Becky lets off. Fans rally for Becky, she runs in to forearm smash! Then jump kick! Then BECKSPLODER! Becky drags Sky up again to BECKSPLODER again! Fans fire up, Sky goes to the apron, but Becky has her through the ropes, Becky fires off, SOBATS, then goes up the ropes. But DMG CTRL save Sky from the leg drop! Fans boo but the legends storm over. The ref has everyone get back., but Becky grabs Bayley’s hair! Sky DROPKICKS Becky away!

Sky hurries in, storms up and stomps Becky down in the corner. Sky lets off, but then digs both boots in. The ref counts, Sky lets off to SWINGING KNEE DROP! Becky flounders, Sky pushes her to a cover, ONE! Sky clamps on with a chinlock and she grinds Becky down. Fans rally as Becky endures the knee in her back. Becky fights up, arm-drags free, but Sky DROPKICKS Becky down! Bayley is fired up and Sky covers, TWO! Sky throws down forearms, then gives toying kicks. Sky taunts the champion and throws forearms. Becky fires back, and the two trade shots! They go faster and faster and fans fire up!

Becky gets the edge, UPPERCUTS, runs, but Sky follows to SHOTEI! Becky staggers and Sky whips her to ropes. Becky comes back with BIG forearms! Both women are down, Lita & Trish coach Becky. The fans rally back up, Becky and Sky head for each other. Becky ROCKS Sky, ELBOWS her, then BOOTS her from the corner! Becky runs to LARIAT! And again! And then CALF KICK! Sky bails out but Becky kips up. Becky runs to WRECK Sky with a dropkick! Becky goes to the apron, leaps, FLYING FOREARM! Kai & Bayley coach Sky but Becky puts her back in. Sky shoulders in, but into KICKS!

Becky goes up the corner again, but Sky slips out of the ropes. Becky leaps over Sky, catches Sky, but Sky fights the clinch! Sky scoops, Becky slips free, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up with Becky and Sky rises. Becky reels her in, MAN- NO, wheelbarrow, STOMP 182! Cover, TWO! Becky survives and Sky can’t believe it, but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Becky hits a SUPERPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Sky survives and Phoenix is fired up! Becky rises first, she throws hands on Sky, then goes after an arm. Sky powers out, waistlocks, and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Sky drags Becky back up, another GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! Sky is shocked, Bayley & Kai coach her on. Sky drags Becky up, underhooks the arms, but Becky fights the lift. Becky wrenches out, ROCKS Sky, then hits a BECKSPLODER! Becky hurries to a corner, climbs up, and Phoenix fires up. But Sky rises, only to get a BOOT! Becky reels Sky in but Sky throws hands!

Sky springboards to DORPKICK Becky to the floor! Then she goes out to ASAI MOONSAULT! Down goes Becky at the ramp! Sky puts Becky in, covers, TWO! Sky grows frustrated but fans say “This is Awesome!” Sky pushes Becky to the drop zone and goes up top. OVER THE MOON- FLOP! Becky dodges, goes for an arm, but Sky rolls her! TWO and Becky drags Sky into a cradle! TWO! MANHANDLE SLAM!! High stack, Becky wins!!

Winner: Becky Lynch, by pinfall

One half of the champs stands tall all on her own! DMG CTRL is salty, but will they turn things around come WrestleMania?


The Bloodline arrives backstage.

Solo Sikoa leads the way, for his brothers, the Usos, and the Wise Man, Paul Heyman. Heyman has a sinister grin on his face, what will the Bloodline have in store for the American Nightmare this close to WrestleMania?


Raw takes a closer look at Asuka.

Corey Graves says that he had some prior knowledge of her dominance in Japan, but once she arrived in NXT, she was a gamechanger. Zelina Vega remembers watching Asuka and thinking, “This woman is scary.” Her undefeated streak in NXT, Kevin Owens says “she was like a buzzsaw, and it wasn’t long until she was Champion.” NXT TakeOver: Dallas began the Asuka Era in NXT, and she ran through the rest of the roster, and even the main roster. Lita says that is a huge accolade. The longest streak of male or female superstars at 914 DAYS. Molly Holly says that going YEARS undefeated, that’s just showing she’s in a class all by herself.

Charlotte Flair looks at Asuka and is in awe. She can do it all. The Women’s Royal Rumble, the Women’s Money in the Bank, the Elimination Chamber, WWE Women’s Grand Slam, and certainly one of the most feared women in WWE today. MVP says Asuka prevails because the mind games are the X-factor Bianca Belair hasn’t seen and isn’t prepared for. IS the EST ready for the Empress of Tomorrow? Or will her one-year reign be ruined at WrestleMania?


Raw shares footage from after last week’s episode went off the air.

Cathy Kelley caught up to Logan Paul backstage and asked about what happened. “Here’s your answer: I beat Seth Rollins again. And I’m gonna beat him at WrestleMania on April 1st, on my birthday, best birthday ever.” And then he goes on shouting that Rollins better watch out!


Backstage with Seth Rollins in the present.

Cathy now has The Visionary as he’s coming in, and he says Cathy is his favorite. What’s she got? Well, Logan has sucker punched him not once but twice. Anything left to say before the match at Mania? Rollins just frowns. And Mustafa Ali walks over. He explains that since Rollins has nothing nice to say, he’s not gonna say anything at all. Rollins looks at Ali and Ali is just trying to help Rollins ese the positive side to Logan Paul knocking him out. Twice. Listen, Logan and his crew had no idea who you even were before the Royal Rumble. And now… Logan and his millions of fans, they can’t wait to see if he’s gonna land another one of those lucky punches at WrestleMania.

Honestly, Rollins should be grateful. Think more positive-Ali. HAHAHAHAHA! Rollins likes that! Good pun! Genius, put it on a shirt, Ali deserves a prize! Any prizes? Maybe Rollins can get his guy to help Ali’s drip game. Or, no, wait! Even better! Remember when Rollins was US Champion and Ali was begging him for a match? Well, yeah, but that was a long time ago. Yeah, but good things come to those who wait. Ali’s night is tonight! Rollins VS Ali, positive-Ali beautiful! That’s not… Um… Well, Ali’s stepped in it, will he be able to survive an angry Architect?


Seth Rollins VS Mustafa Ali!

Raw returns and Rollins makes his entrance. Fans sing “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Ali is already in the ring and is trying to ask for mercy. Rollins enjoys the singing for a moment before he takes off the jacket. The bell rings and Ali again tries to reason with Rollins. Rollins throws Ali to a corner, but Ali goes up and over and again wants Rollins to think calmly. Rollins rushes in, Ali slips to the apron, shoulders in, goes up and over and ROCKS Rollins! Ali says if he was Logan, he would’ve knocked Rollins out. Rollins still rushes in., Ali headlocks, but Rollins powers out. Ali goes up and over, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Rollins CLOBBERS him!

Fans fire up while Ali flounders. Fans sing as Rollins stomps away on Ali in the corner, but the ref counts. Rollins lets off at 4 and fans fire up more. But then Ali YANKS Rollins into buckles! Ali goes up the corner, but Rollins ROLLING ELBOWS the legs out! And then ROLLING ELBOWS Ali in the back! Ali falls into the Tree of Woe and fans cheer. Ali wants mercy, but he gets an UPSIDE-DOWN CURB STOMP!! Ali flops out of the Tree, fans fire up as Rollins aims again, and he hits a proper CURB STOMP!! Cover, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall

Ali’s positive attitude and negative comments got him a zero sum, but Rollins has something to say. “In five days, April 1st, night one of WrestleMania, I finally get my hands on Logan Paul. And Logan Paul, he’s got a history of making a joke out of himself. But me level with you. If I can’t beat Logan Paul at WrestleMania, he’s not the joke, I am.” Fans boo but Rollins says Logan threw Rollins out of the Rumble, cost him at the Elimination Chamber, and cheap-shotted him not once but twice. “And in five days, it all… comes… back… AROUND!”

And April 1st just happens to be Logan’s birthday? Logan, Logan, Logan, the WWE Universe at WrestleMania, they will be serenading you all night long. But it won’t be Happy Birthday! Phoenix, give Logan a taste of what Logan’s gonna hear at WrestleMania! “Sing that damn song!” “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins tells Logan, “I’ll see you at WrestleMania. HAHAHA!” The Visionary is ready to #BurnItDown, will this go from the best birthday to the worst birthday ever for the ImPAULsive Influencer?


Baron Corbin talks with Adam Pearce.

Rick Boogs challenged Corbin, Corbin is trying to get out of a slump he’s been in, and then there’s WrestleMania. Corbin has NO WrestleMania match and that’s embarrassing. He’s doing signings, media, meet ‘n’ greets, all about it! He used to run this show and Pearce has to give Corbin a break. And then Chelsea Green walks in. She would like a moment ot break her foot off in Pearce’s behind! Pearce says that’s real classy. But he tells Corbin that he and Boogs can have it out in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on Friday Night SmackDown. Now, excuse him for a moment.

Chelsea says she needs to know why she is NOT in the Women’s Tag Team Showcase. Because you don’t have a partner! Piper Niven no longer wants anything to do with her, but listen. Pearce has been working- NO, do not mansplain her. But then Sonya Deville walks in and says she couldn’t have said it better herself. The problem with Pearce is that Sonya did this job better than him, and that intimidated him. In fact, he might just be intimidated by strong women. Pearce would like to finish what he was saying. he looked at the roster, he was thinking about who could be in the Women’s Tag Team Showcase, and it struck him: Chelsea & Sonya.

They’re a bit surprised but he says yes, they can be a team. Call yourselves “The Complaint Department” or “Misery Loves Company” or whatever you want. But if they want in the match, they have to win against Mia Yim & Candice LeRae. The winner will be the fourth and final team in the Women’s Tag Team Showcase. Okay? Sonya says Pearce isn’t usually this smart but this is brilliant. So they’re okay with it? Yes, first thing he’s done right. Fine, does he at least get his office back? Chelsea & Sonya leave, Corbin steps back in and says, “Seriously?” Pearce sighs and leaves. Will Michin & The Poison Pixie ruin the hopes of the Hot Mess & Jersey Deville?


Corey Graves & Adam Pearce are in the ring.

Corey welcomes us to the official weigh-in for what is literally one of the biggest match at WrestleMania. So first, accompanied by MVP, it is the Nigerian Giant, OMOS! Omos makes his entrance with MVP right behind him. Omos enters the ring and then MVP takes the mic from Corey to take it from here. Fans boo but MVP says, “Before we are joined by the Beast Incarnate, I’d like to remind everyone that this one final opportunity for all of you–and for you, Brock Lesnar–to see the specimen that is the Nigerian Giant.

“You see, Brock, I will give you credit because I respect you immensely. Brock Lesnar, many times, you have stepped in this ring at previous WrestleManias and you have imposed your will and conquered some of the greatest that this business has ever seen. People like the great Kurt Angle. People like Goldberg. People like… Roman Reigns.” But MVP would be amiss if he didn’t mention the ‘crowning achievement: ending the streak at WrestleMania of the Undertaker.” But unlike all of those men, Omos is a GIANT. Lesnar can’t suplex him, he can’t F5 him, and at Mania, Lesnar will NOT defeat him!

So Omos, if you would, please. Omos steps on the scale, and the scales are adjusted. The final call is: 410 pounds! Lesnar’s a bad man, but he ain’t badder than Omos! But wait, here comes Lesnar! Lesnar takes off his hat to wave at the fans, then he fires off his pyro. Lesnar goes to the ring, taking off his denim vest and putting his hat aside. Lesnar enters the ring, looks Omos up and down, then ATTACKS! Omos stays up, Lesnar RAMS Omos again, then again! Omos staggers, Lesnar has the scale! But Omos BOOTS Lesnar down! Omos roars, MVP says to finish it! Lesnar gets away as Omos grabs the scale!

Omos shouts, “This is MY house!” Fans chant “SUPLEX CITY!” but Lesnar hasn’t had a chance to do even one suplex. Lesnar has things cool off, and we already know he isn’t close to 410 pounds. But will Lesnar prove that the bigger they are, the harder they fall?


Raw takes a closer look at Charlotte Flair.

Charlotte Flair says herself that this is her destiny. This is her birthright. This is her continuing the greatest legacy in professional wrestling. In total, a FOURTEEN-TIME Women’s Champion, and is ready to main event WrestleMania on April 1st against Rhea Ripley. The Queen vows to put Rhea in her place once and for all.


Backstage interview with Rhea Ripley.

Byron Saxton is with the challenger to Charlotte Flair, how does Rhea respond to Charlotte saying she’ll continue her storied legacy by winning at Mania? There is no denying how great Charlotte’s legacy is. But we don’t need to be reminded that she’s a 14-time women’s champion. Her legacy is unmatched, but it will not define Rhea. Rhea must beat Charlotte, she must prove she is the best, and she must become the biggest star in this industry. And Rhea needs Charlotte’s title to do so. It comes down to Charlotte’s legacy against Rhea’s destiny. And Charlotte can’t stop Rhea from becoming the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion.


Finn Balor speaks.

“Edge. It was always gonna be this way, wasn’t it? You and I, dragging each other to the lonely wicked structure inside Hell in a Cell. Now you, you are familiar with the Cell. You say you thrive in the Cell. You ay you were baptized int he Cell. And now, you wanna lock yourself inside of the Cell with me. Don’t you know there is nothing more dangerous than a caged demon? So Edge, go to your dark place. Light your candles. Do whatever it is you need to do to unlock it, to summon it. But just remember: I don’t summon my demons. My demons are always here. You just have to look closely.” Finn is ready to bring out his dark side, will he use it to devour Edge’s soul?


8 Man Tag: Ricochet, Braun Strowman & The Street Profits VS The Alpha Academy & The Viking Raiders!

Ahead of the Men’s Tag Team Showcase Fatal 4 Way, it’s a 4v4! Will the King of Flight, the Monster of All Monsters, Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford take the lead roles going into Hollywood? Or will Chad Gable, Otis, Erik & Ivar be the ones in the spotlight?

Raw returns as “SHOOOSH! Shoosh, please.” Gable & Otis make their entrance first, then Erik & Ivar make theirs, “Valhalla” Sarah Logan guiding them. The teams sort out, and Gable starts against Dawkins. They circle, tie up, and Dawkins wrenches an arm. Gable rolls, wrenches and headlocks to a takeover. Dawkins headscissors, Gable kips free, roles reverses and Gable kips out of headscissors. The two stare down and fans fire up. “We Want The Smoke! We Want The Smoke!” Gable says “SHOOSH!” and circles with Dawkins. They tie up, Dawkins headlocks but Gable powers out, only for Dawkins to run him over.

Things keep moving, Dawkins hurdles then whips, but Gable waistlocks and gator rolls! Dawkins gets free, things keep moving, Ricochet tags in before Gable hurdles and Dawkins cartwheels! Dawkins arm-drags, Gable arm-drags, and Dawkins bails out! “A thank yew!” Ricochet runs in, rolls and handsprings, but into an ANKLE LOCK! But Ricochet rolls to throw Gable away, and he DROPKICKS Gable down! Tag to Braun! Braun helps Ricochet, RAILGUN BODY CHECK! Then Braun adds a SPALSH! Feed to the ENZIGURI, LARIAT! Fans fire up with Braun, but Ford tags in. Ford also flexes but Braun isn’t amused.

Ford slingshots in but Gable arm-drags! Ford arm-drags, Gable arm-drags, repeat! Gable trips, covers, ONE! Ford trips, covers, ONE! Ford bobs ‘n’ weaves to BACKHAND! But Gable CLOBBERS Ford! “SHOOOSH~!” Fans boo and Ford’s team steps up. Gable’s team steps up, too, and fans fire up! The ref says no, but it’s an EIGHT MAN BRAWL! Braun throws out Gable, Erik and Ricochet fall out, Otis throws out Ford and Ivar throws out Dawkins! And now we have the three biggest men! Fans are loving this! Ivar swings on Braun but Braun DECKS Ivar! Otis CLOBBERS Braun out of the ring!!

Ford LEAPS in, but into a WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Otis and Gable celebrate while fans boo, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Erik has Ford in a headlock. Ford fights up, but Erik throws him down! Erik sits Ford up, has a chinbar neck wrench but Ford endures. Ford fights up, pries free of the hold, but Erik knees low! Tag to Ivar and the Vikings mug Ford against the ropes! Fans boo but the Vikings let off. Gable also gloats on their behalf, but Ivar tags Erik back in. Erik feeds Ford to Ivar’s KNEE! Ivar feeds Ford to Erik’s KNEE! Cover, TWO! Ford survives but Erik drags Ford over. Otis tags in, Erik hands off Ford and Otis CLOBBERS Ford! Maxxine Dupri is watching backstage, she is very pleased as Otis tears off his shirt.

Otis gets the truffle shuffle going, runs and ELBOW DROPS! “Maxxine, I’m here, baby!” Gable wants Otis to focus and he drags Ford up. Ford mule kicks! And front kicks! But Otis CLOBBERS Ford again! Otis looms over Ford and says, “Who’s the man!?” Otis drags Ford up, but Ford wrenches and ENZIGURIS! Otis wobbles and Ford crawls! Otis shakes out the cobwebs, hot tags to Dawkins and Ivar! Dawkins rallies on the other team, but Ivar kicks low! Ivar whips, Dawkins hurdles, FLYING ELBOW! Fans fire up for the CYCLONE SPLASH! And ENZIGURI! Ivar wobbles, Gable gets in, Dawkins DECKS Gable!

But Ivar DECKS Dawkins! Tag to Erik, SPLASH and FOREARM and then a LARIAT! Cover, Ricochet breaks it with a STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Ivar gets in, into an ENZIGURI! Ricochet triangle jump DROPKICKS Otis! Ricochet hurdles Gable, Dawkins DECKS Gable!! Fans fire up, Dawkins hurries, hot tag to Braun! And he gets on the tracks! The Strowman Express DERAILS Otis! And then Gable! And then Ivar! Erik ROCKS Braun at the ropes, Ace Ten Maou!! Erik runs, into a SPINEBUSTER! Braun rips off his shirt and fans are thunderous! Tag to Ricochet, then scoop! MONSTER SLAM!

Ricochet gets on Braun’s shoulders, for a MONSTER SWANTON!! And then Ford tags in, FROM THE HEAVENS!! Cover, Ford’s team wins!

Winners: Ricochet, Braun Strowman & The Street Profits, by pinfall

A HUGE team up, a HUGE victory! But will either of these dynamic duos be the winners of the Fatal 4 Way?

As for Maxxine, she does not like that Gable & Otis are still sticking together. Will she find a way to break Otis away from Gable and the Academy?


Backstage interview with Cody Rhodes.

Cathy is with the American Nightmare, and asks that with his Mania match just days away, is accepting a match with Solo Sikoa puts him in a “vulnerable position?” Cody lives for this position. He understands, though, because Solo is undefeated, like Cody. Hasn’t been pinned, hasn’t been submitted. Now if Roman Reigns and Mr. Heyman were here, you’d ask them if they think Cody has a chance of making it through tonight and winning at WrestleMania. They’d surely cackle maniacally in their Samoan Goodfellas aesthetic.

But Cody would follow up and say, “Why is it so important, Mr. Heyman, that I wrestle the enforcer of the Bloodline, and he always has an enforcer, six days away from the big one?” It’s because they know. They know the answer to the question people are asking: Has Cody Rhodes earned it? Has he? The fire didn’t start when he came back at AT&T Stadium. That’d be a disservice to where Cody’s been and where he’s gone. This started long before that. This fire isn’t going out. Cody hasn’t just earned it, he’s lived it!

“Tonight, Solo Sikoa finds out he’s not ready. And at WrestleMania, I defeat Roman Reigns and become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.” Cody is ready, but will the Bloodline look to ruin his Hollywood story?


Raw takes a closer look at Bianca Belair.

Liv Morgan says, “There’s nothing Bianca can’t do.” She remembers the first day Bianca was in the Performance Center, and from the first moment, it was clear they had a star. Corey Graves says, “When we talk about superstars in this business having ‘it,’ that sort of indefinable, intangible quality, Bianca exemplifies it.” The strongEST, the fastEST, the roughEST, the toughEST. Montez Ford could go on for days about how excited he is for his wife, and the dominance has been second to none. Beth Phoenix says it is special for her to see this generation having great role models, like Bianca Belair.

Bianca has been on radio, television, talk shows, sports shows, awards shows, and still has energy for the ring. Molly Holly is so proud of what Bianca’s accomplished. She’s got something special. Cody Rhodes knows Bianca’s year long dominance is legit. Kevin Owens says that between Bianca’s abilities and Asuka’s mind games, that is a must-see match. But then, who will be the RawEST Women’s Champion after WrestleMania?


Austin Theory speaks.

Earlier today, when there was no one in the arena, Theory said that at WrestleMania Saturday, he loses everything. “According to you, John Cena. But that’s where you’re wrong.” For some reason, Cena thinks he’s exposed Theory on the mic. No, he exposed himself. Cena showed himself that the one thing Cena can’t see is the future right in front of his eyes. Theory says it’s like Cena was hitting Theory with a reality check that no one believes in him. Not even him, THE John Cena. But Cena must be wondering why Theory’s here all alone. It’s simple. There’s no difference between an empty arena or a sold out SoFi Stadium.

Because Theory doesn’t do this for the fans. he doesn’t do it for a fan who wants to be the next Austin Theory> And he doesn’t do it to be the next John Cena. Theory does this for Theory. Theory does this because he had a purpose way before anyone had an opinion. “It’s sad. It’s so sad to know that I would’ve let you go down the hero.” But Cena made it personal. Theory knows a lot of people… Hell, everyone looks up to Cena. But it’ll be so fitting that Cena will be looking up at Theory. And that’s not a theory, because Theory will make Cena believe in Austin Theory. And the WWE Universe that Cena loves so much, they will stop believing in Cena.

And that’ll happen on the Grandest Stage of Them All, this Saturday at WrestleMania. Theory looks to the sign in silence, but will there be an uproar when he manages to defeat the living legend to start the Showcase of the Immortals?


The WWE Hall of Fame has legs!

That is to say, Stacy Kiebler is being inducted as part of this year’s class!


WrestleMania Women’s Tag Team Showcase Qualifier: Mia Yim & Candice LeRae VS Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville!

#Michin and the Poison Pixie have teamed before, but this is their biggest opportunity as a team yet! Will they clean up the Hot Mess and go on to WrestleMania? Or will all the complaints and criticisms turn into celebration for Chelsea & Sonya?

Raw returns and Candice & Mia make their entrance. The teams sort out and Sonya starts against Mia. They circle, tie up, and Sonya pulls hair. Sonya puts Mia in the corner, the ref counts, and Sonya lets off at 4. Sonya pie faces Mia, fans boo, but Sonya taunts Mia. Mia storms up, blocks a punch and fires off forearms! Mia whips, runs and then redirects to DROPKICK Sonya! Fans fire up and Sonya flounders to a corner. Mia runs in to BOOT Sonya down! Chelsea complains but Mia chases her off. Mia runs in but the CANNONBALL gets buckles! Sonya drags Mia up and bumps her off buckles.

Tag to Chelsea, Sonya fires off kicks and then Chelsea SLAPS! Chelsea digs her boot in, tags Sonya, and Sonya fires body shots. Tag back to Chelsea, she and Sonya bring Mia out to double suplex. They stall, but Mia uses that to turn things into a DOUBLE NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Mia crawls, hot tag to Candice! Candice goes up top and DOUBLE CROSSBODIES! Fans fire up, Candice fires off on Chelsea but Chelsea gets around. Chelsea ripcords, Candice dodges and CLOBBERS Chelsea! Then back body block in the corner! Snapmare, STEP-UP SENTON! Tag to Mia, she and Candice combine, WHEELBARROW VICTORY SPLASH! Cover, Sonya breaks it!

Candice swings on Sonya, but Sonya spins her around and ELBOW DROP DDTS! But Mia runs in to SHOTGUN Sonya down! Fans fire up but Chelsea runs in. Mia dodges, waistlocks, but Chelsea switches. Mia bucks the O’Conner, but Sonya sucker punches her! Chelsea chicken wings for the UNPRETTIER! Cover, Chelsea & Sonya win!

Winners: Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville, by pinfall

Fans boo but there’s nothing they can do about it now! Will there be nothing the other three teams can do when these two migraine makers hit Hollywood?


Backstage interview with Paul Heyman.

Cathy asks the Special Counsel his response to Cody’s words from earlier. Heyman says, “Ye, though he walks through the shadow of the Island of Relevancy, Cody Rhodes fears no Tribal Chief, because Cody Rhodes is. Not. Ready. He proved it just a few minutes ago, when he asked what had to be a rhetorical question. Why is it so important that he fight Solo six days before Cody Rhodes is in his first WrestleMania main event? It’s not important, it’s relevant. And here’s why it’s so relevant. Because Solo is ready… to weaken Cody Rhodes for his match against Roman Reigns.

“Solo is not here to compete. Solo is here to put a beating on Cody Rhodes so that Cody Rhodes is not at 100% against Roman Reigns this Sunday. And if you’re saying, ‘Well that’s not very dignified of Roman Reigns as champion.’ Well, Roman Reigns is ready to stoop to those depths, and rise to those occasions, and get any advantage that he can to remain Tribal Chief on the Island of Relevancy. And that, Cathy, is the difference between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes. Roman Reigns came to his Wise Man and said, ‘Wise Man, I’m ready.’ And so Roman Reigns was ready to stop being the Big Dog and became the Tribal Chief.

“But this is the same Cody Rhodes we’ve known our entire lives. With those big puppy dog eyes, looking at his hero, Roman Reigns, across the ring Sunday night at WrestleMania, because Cody Rhodes has never been ready. Cody Rhodes was never ready to fill the shoes of the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes. Cody Rhodes was never ready to be the man of this generation. Cody Rhodes is not ready to defeat your Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, this Sunday at WrestleMania. Cody Rhodes needs to be ready to take the beating that will be inflicted upon him by Solo tonight.

“And then, Cody Rhodes will have to take the emotional baggage that Roman Reigns will dump on him this Friday face to face on SmackDown, so that when Cody Rhodes enters the ring on Sunday night, the only thing he’s going to be ready for is to lose to Roman Reigns. And then Cody Rhodes, I implore you, be ready for the greatest moment of your entire existence. When in the glory of your own defeat, when you’ve disappointed the WWE Universe, be ready to ACKNOWLEDGE your Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, in the main event this Sunday of WrestleMania.” Heyman claims Solo is ready, but will he be shocked in tonight’s main event?


Rey Mysterio VS Damian Priest w/ Dominik Mysterio!

You can insult a man all you want, but if you insult his wife, that’s a different story! The King of Lucha Libre finally smacked the smug smile off his son’s face on Friday night, and they’re going to have a WrestleMania match after all! But will the Judgment Day’s Punisher break Rey before Dom has to face what’s coming to him?

Raw returns and fans boo as Dom has the mic. “Dad. It takes a real lowlife to hit your own child. I thought you were a deadbeat then. Now, you really are a deadbeat! Everyone saw the video of you attacking me. And after Damian beats  you tonight and I humiliate you at WrestleMania, everyone here will really know what a failure of a father you really are! Someone roll the footage!” A replay of what went down on SmackDown plays, where Rey said no, but Dom had to push it by dragging his mother and sister into this. Dom told his mom to shut up, and Rey DECKED Dom! Dom rants in Spanish about his mom ignoring the truth and his sister not knowing anything.

Fans chant “YOU SUCK!” as Dom says “What kind of father hits his own son? What kind of mother sits there and does nothing?” Dom should’ve said all that a long time ago! Fans still boo and chant “YOU SUCK!” but Dom tells his dad that he’s never said this out loud, but he DOES wish Eddie was his real father! And that Rey never EXISTED! Because Dom’s entire family is a disgrace to the Mysterio name! And the Mysterio name will be HIS after WrestleMania! Dom’s rant ends, and Rey makes his entrance. Rey is keeping his cool, but will he explode before WrestleMania? We see, after the break.

Raw returns again and the match is underway. Rey headlocks but Priest powers out, only for Rey to kick him back. Rey then ducks, dodges, and wheelbarrows, to BULLDOG! Fans fire up but Dom shouts at Priest to get up. Rey goes to the apron while Priest slowly stands. Rey climbs the corner, leaps in, and SEATED SENTONS! Rey keeps moving, he slides past Priest to dropkick the legs out! Rey KICKS Damian down and fans fire up. Rey runs to LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Priest and Rey both stand up, but Rey whips. Priest blocks, Rey CLUBS Priest then runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but springboards into Priest’s arms!

Priest swings Rey around, COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Rey is still in this. Priest looms over Rey and wants him to stand up. Fans rally for Rey, that annoys Dom, but Priest runs in, only for the leg to get caught up on the top rope! Rey then CLUBS Priest down onto the ropes! Rey dials it up, but Priest LARIATS first!! Cover, TWO!! Priest and Dom are furious that Rey survives! Priest drags Rey up, RAMS him into a corner, then hoists him up top. Fans rally, Priest CLUBS Rey then climbs up after him. Priest choke grips, but Rey throws back hands and elbows! Rey then stands up, to SUPER STEINER!

Priest flounders up, Rey dropkicks him onto ropes! Rey redials, for the 619!! Priest is down and Rey goes up! But then Dom trips Rey up!

Winner: Rey Mysterio, by disqualification

Fans boo but Dom drags Rey off the corner and rains fists down! Dom roars as the fans boo, but Dom has Priest drag Rey up. They mug Rey, but wait! LEGADO DEL FANTASMA is here! Santos Escobar, Cruz Del Toro & Joaquin Wilde run Priest & Dom off! Will Dom lie, cheat and ultimately steal the Mysterio legacy away from his father?


Raw looks back at Andre the Giant.

“Larger than life. Unmatched in power. Andre the Giant towered over the competition with a nearly 15 year undefeated streak.” Jerry Lawler says that no matter where Andre went, people came to see him. Hulk Hogan says there was just “something magical” about Andre. The first-ever inductee to the WWE Hall of Fame, he holds the record for most career battle royal eliminations. And in 2014, WWE began the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. It is a tradition that brings the same awe and excitement that Andre himself brought to the ring. This Friday Night SmackDown, who makes their mark on history in the ninth annual memorial battle royal?


The list of participants is in the back.

Bobby Lashley, Johnny Gargano, Dexter Lumis, Rick Boogs, Dolph Ziggler, Elias, Mustafa Ali, Xavier Woods, Madcap Moss, Baron Corbin, Bronson Reed, Karrion Kross, LA Knight, Cedric Alexander, Shelton Benjamin, Mace, Mansoor, Top Dolla, Ashante THEE Adonis, Ridge Holland, “Butch” Pete Dunne, Angel Garza, Humberto Carrillo, Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, Cruz Del Toro and… The Good Brothers, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows! Bingo! Payday! Gargano says Friday Night SmackDown, NXT Stand & Deliver Saturday and WrestleMania ALL weekend, this is gonna be crazy!

Gargano, lead us tot he dojo. Uh, okay. Maybe this way? Sure. Boogs walks up and is so excited! Elias asks why? Boogs is in the battle royal! Sweet! Just like Elias. And Elias has a great feeling. Take notes, because Elias is a lock to win. But then he turns around to see Lumis. Well, nice gloves. And then he turns around to see Bronson Reed. Sorry, didn’t see you there. See you Friday, though. But then Elias bumps into the All Mighty! Elias is a lock to win, huh? Y-yeah… Lashley pats Elias on the shoulder and says, “See you Friday.” Boogs says this is gonna be SUPER! Is it, though? Or will a true giant win the Andre the Giant Battle Royal?


Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn speak.

Sami starts by saying, “I’d say it’s been a pretty emotional year. After everything that’s happened between us and the Usos, and everything else, we’re now finding ourselves less than a week away from the biggest tag team championship match of all time. And a huge part of why this is so emotional for us is also the fact that it’s happening in Los Angeles, because there’s a big part of the story there that not everybody knows. Yeah, everybody knows Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens started in Montreal, from nothing. Nothing! But Los Angeles is the city where we first got our big break. That is where we made our names, that is where we truly became a team.

“And now, after all these years, after everything that’s happened with us, it all comes full circle and we walk back into Los Angeles as a team.” Kevin says, “Because every fight we’ve ever been in, every fight we’ve had together, every fight we’ve had alongside each other, has been about getting our careers to the next level. Going forward, going upwards, getting bigger and better things. But this weekend, it doesn’t get any better, it doesn’t get any bigger. Biggest tag team match of all time? You’re right. It’s us against the Usos, the longest reigning tag team champions of all time. The best team in WWE.

“And that was true up until last week, because this weekend, we get to show The Usos, we get to show The Bloodline, we get to show the world, what we can do as a team, and we get to do it in Los Angeles, the city where we got our first big break! And in that city, we are going to achieve the biggest thing we can achieve together, when we become WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions, and we’re doing it at WrestleMania!” Kevin & Sami are fired up, will they be the ones to finally dethrone Jimmy & Jey?


GUNTHER w/ Imperium VS ???

Despite Der Ring General wanting only one challenger for his Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, he made a miscalculation in his plans and now has two! Will Gunther be 100% before taking on Drew McIntyre AND Sheamus? Or will whoever his opponent is find a way to do some damage?

Raw returns and Gunther’s opponent is… Dolph Ziggler! The Showoff has been Intercontinental Champion many times before, will he show he can still get to that level?

The bell rings, and Ziggler DROPKICKS Gunther! And SATELLITE DDTS! Fans fire up, Ziggler aims again, and Gunther stands into haymakers! SUPER- NO, Gunther blocks the kick to CHOP Ziggler off his feet! Gunther drags Ziggler up, UPPERCUTS him to a corner, then drags Ziggler up to put him on the top rope. Gunther CHOPS Ziggler, then climbs up to STAND on Ziggler! The ref reprimands and counts, fans boo, but Gunther lets off at 4. Ziggler flops out of the ring, Gunther stands tall in the corner, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Gunther has Ziggler down with a chinlock. Ziggler fights up, throws body shots, then haymakers and forearms! Fans fire up, Ziggler HEADBUTTS, then he dodges a lariat to kick and FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO! Gunther crawls to a corner, stands up, and Ziggler jumps! But Gunther bucks the Zigzag! Ziggler runs back in, into a CHOP!! Gunther then drags Ziggler up for a GERMAN SUPLEX! And then Gunther drags Ziggler up to bring him around, for a GENERAL BOMB!! Gunther doesn’t end it there, though, as he drags Ziggler back up! For the scoop and LAST SYMPHONY! Cover, Gunther!

Winner: Gunther, by pinfall

The Intercontinental Champion didn’t need to do more damage, he wanted to do more damage. But Gunther then gets the mic to call out Sheamus and McIntyre. “Despite the disgrace of being forced to defend MY Intercontinental Championship against both of you… Have a look. Because this is the fate that awaits you at WrestleMania!” Will brutality be the melody of this Triple Threat of titans?


Cody Rhodes VS Solo Sikoa w/ Paul Heyman!

Fans sing for The American Nightmare and the pyro goes off, Cody is more than ready for this Monday Night Raw main event. But will he survive this fight with the Street Champion before taking on THE champion on WrestleMania Sunday? Or will the story he wants to finish meet a tragic ending right here?

Raw returns again and fans fire up with the bell. They rally behind Cody as he ties up with Solo. Cody headlocks, Solo powers out and they RAM shoulders. Solo dares Cody to try again, and Cody does run, but he slides under to kick low and drop for the RHODES UPPERCUT! But Solo UPPERCUTS right back! Cody staggers to a corner, Solo runs in but Cody dodges to DROPKICK! Cody fires off haymakers and forearms, runs, but Solo hits a SAMOAN DROP! It was more a toss, really, but either way, Solo stalks Cody out of the ring. Solo SMACKS Cody off the apron, then talks trash. “Who’s not ready, huh?”

Solo whips, Cody reverses, and Solo hits the steel steps! Cody hurries after Solo, they get in the ring, and Cody drags Solo to a corner. Cody ROCKS Solo, then SLAMS the bad leg against the post! Solo crawls, Cody slides in, and Cody runs to springboard and- Clinch! BELLY2BELLY! Solo snarls as he stands back up, and he watches Cody bail out. Solo smacks his bad leg to get it working, and he builds speed to CLOBBER Cody off the apron! Cody hits the announce desk, and Solo goes out after him. Fans are torn as Solo stalks Cody, but Cody blocks the bump to SMACK Solo off the desk! Cody dribbles Solo’s head, then rains down fists!

Fans fire up with Cody, he slides into the ring to refresh the count, and he builds speed! Cody DIVES, but into another clinch! SPINNING SOLO onto the desk! Fans boo while Cody writhes, and Solo drags him back up. For another SPINNING SOLO onto the desk! Solo soaks up the heat while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more and Solo clamps a claw into Cody’s shoulder. Cody endures and fans rally up, and Cody pries at the hold. Cody fights to his feet, pries the hand away, but Solo ROCKS him in the back with a forearm. Solo back suplexes, but Cody lands on his feet! Cody kicks low, reels Solo in, but Solo is too big to suplex! Solo HEADBUTTS Cody and puts him in a corner, to SPLASH! Solo shoves Cody down then stalks him. Solo grinds his forearm into Cody’s head, then scrapes his face! The ref reprimands but Solo eggs Cody on. Cody sits up but Solo CLUBS him down! Solo stomps Cody to ropes, then rains down fists!

The ref reprimands and counts, but Solo lets off at 4. Fans rally for Cody but Solo drags Cody up. But Cody stomps a foot! Then he GOURD BUSTERS Solo down! Solo sits up in a daze and staggers up, to HEADBUTT again! Cody wobbles, Solo runs, but then Cody follows! Cody CLOBBERS Solo, baits him to a corner, and goes up and over. Solo runs in, Cody dodges to POWERSLAM! Cody runs as Solo rises, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER KICK! Cody keeps moving, he springboards again, CODY CUTTER! Fans fire up with Cody, and he waits on Solo to stand. Solo rises, Cody dragon sleepers! CROSS RHODES! Cody crawls to the cover, ROPEBREAK!!

Solo survives by a literal foot and Cody can’t believe it! Cody drags Solo to a drop zone, stomps him a few times, then goes to the corner. Cody glares at Heyman while he climbs up, “Is this what you wanted!?” MOONSAULT FLOPS as Solo moves! Heyman says yes, that IS what he wanted. Solo and Cody both slowly rise, and they crawl towards each other. Both men stand, and Solo HEADBUTTS! And HEADBUTTS! And he prepares the thumb! Cody dodges the Samoan Spike to springboard and CODY CUTTER again! Fans fire up, but here come the USOS! Jimmy & Jey storm down the ramp, but Cody turns around into a SUPERKICK from Solo!

Solo hits another SPINNING SOLO!! Cover, TWO!!! Cody survives and the Bloodline is furious! But here come Sami & Kevin! The tag teams brawl at the ramp and Phoenix is thunderous again! Kevin ahs Jimmy, Sami has Jey, and Kevin sends Jimmy into the tron! Sami sends Jey into the tron! The brawl continues to the back! Solo is stunned, Cody springboards in! But Solo catches him! SAMOAN- NO, Cody ducks the spike! CROSS RHODES AGAIN!! Cover, Cody wins!!!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

Heyman is seething, but Solo’s WWE undefeated streak is broken by Cody’s! But will Cody cap this all off with the storybook ending of becoming Undisputed WWE Universal Champion?

My Thoughts:

A great episode, especially given this was a go-home episode. Great video packages to hype Asuka and Bianca ahead of their match, and a good one for Charlotte. Rhea had a good promo in person that didn’t really add anything. A little surprised they didn’t make a video for her so that everyone could see her run in NXT UK and NXT. Or maybe they should’ve had he reference that herself in this promo. Because Rhea could’ve brought up how she is the first woman to have been NXT UK Women’s and prime NXT Women’s Champion in her career, and is therefore also the only one to have had those, the Raw Women’s title and the WWE Women’s tag titles. If she gets the SmackDown title, she’ll join Charlotte as a WWE Triple Crown and Grand Slam, and even create like a “Five Star” Champion category all her own.

Great opening with MizTV, with good promos from everyone on the Face team, a good promo from Bayley, and a great response from Becky. Great match from Becky VS Sky, and great win from Becky. Becky’s promo did have a good point that DMG CTRL hasn’t really gone anywhere (not necessarily their fault), so I’m thinking that if DMG CTRL doesn’t win at Mania, Kai & Sky break away from Bayley to do things their way. Really good stuff from the women’s tag showcase story, too, with Chelsea & Sonya being almost as good of a combination as Chelsea & Carmella. And so of course they win to even things out, two Heel teams and two Face teams. I’m still thinking Ronda & Shayna win, and at this point, they probably pin/submit Chelsea to do it.

Good stuff from Rollins and Ali, with Ali apparently leaning into his “positive-Ali” gimmick to annoy more than just Ziggler. Rollins of course wins, and he has a great promo calling out Logan Paul. Not sure how that affects go-home math but obviously wrestling fans want Rollins to win so let’s hope he does. And speaking of Ziggler, I don’t know who I expected Gunther to beat, but I should’ve realized it’d be Ziggler. Good promo from Gunther warning his challengers, but it is still up in the air who wins that. Really good promo from Theory because he actually takes the Heel trope of not needing or caring about the fans to another level.

The weigh-in segment turning into a brawl was fine, because we were bound to get a brawl tonight anyway. Omos continues to look incredibly powerful, and Lesnar continues to find himself on the defensive. This could be one of the more compelling matches Lesnar has had because he has to figure out how to win as the underdog. Good vignette for Andre the Giant and the battle royal, and good promo where some of the entrants find they are in fact entrants. Elias is definitely not winning, but I would love if one of the “giants” in that match wins. And I’d personally go with Bronson Reed, he needs something to jumpstart his own story so he can stop story hopping.

Great promo from Dom before a really good match from Rey VS Damian. A disqualification win is a good way to give Rey the momentum, but then that can also mean Dom is going over at Mania for a huge moment. Really good promo from Finn to respond to Edge, can’t wait to see how this WrestleMania edition of Demon Balor will look. And really good 8 Man Tag to preview the Men’s Tag Team Showcase. The Faces winning makes sense, but who knows if either of those duos wins. It’d actually be rather surprising if, in her attempts to court Otis away from Alpha Academy, Maxxine has Mace & Mansoor help the Academy win with some shenanigans.

And of course, great stuff out of the Bloodline storylines. Great promos from both Cody and Heyman ahead of the great match from Cody VS Solo. Great promo from Kevin & Sami, and of course they counter The Usos trying to help Solo against Cody. This big win for Cody would normally make it seem like Cody is going to lose at the PPV, but there’s still the segment on SmackDown, and this story is a bit more complex, so there are ways for Cody to still win at Mania despite the math.

My Score: 8.7/10

Daivari hurries to bring Brody around in a facelock, and turns him for a NECKBREAKER! Daivari CHOKES Brody on ropes, the ref counts, and Daivari lets off. Daivari argues with the ref, so that Sterling can CHOKE Brody! Sterling scurries away like the weasel he is, and then Daivari stands on Brody in the corner!

The ref counts, Daivari lets off and he drags Brody over. Tag to Nese, and Nese stomps Brody while Daivari anchors the legs. Rampage returns to single picture as Nese and Daivari let off. Nese soaks up heat, stalks Brody to the corner, and he grins as he says “All day, baby.” Nese CHOPS but Brody gets mad! Brody fires forearms and elbows, DECKS Nese, then storms up. Nese throat chops! Then Nese runs, but into an URENAGE! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, reaches out, hot tags to Malakai and Daivari!

Nese gets in but Malakai ELBOWS him down! Daivari kicks and whips but Malakai RANAS! Nese is up but the JUMP KNEE knocks him down! Daivari stands and Malakai QUEBRADAS him down! Cover, TWO!

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

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

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?


Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

And KICKS again! Fenix pushes Komander to a corner, to then JUMP SOBAT! Fenix fires up, the fans are with him, and Fenix puts Komander up top. Fenix CHOPS, climbs, and brings Komander around. Komander fires body shots! Fox is back, and he joins in!

Fox CHOPS and CLUBS the luchadores, then climbs up. Fenix CLUBS Fox for it, and the luchadores work together again to SHOVE Fox down! Fox ends up folded, then Komander and Fenix brawl again. Angelico CLUBS Komander right as he CHOPS Fenix! Angelico takes aim, and he waistlocks Komander! Komander clings to ropes for dear life! Fenix BOOTS Angelico down, then he and Komander brawl some more! Komander stands, Fenix SHOVES him, and Komander MOONSAULTS right onto Angelico! Fenix then FROG SPLASHES onto Fox! Cover, TWO?!? Fox survives, so Fenix drags him into a CRUCIFIX COBRA CLUTCH!! Fenix TAPS, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by submission

The Immortal Firebird brings out something new in his arsenal and takes the win! But will Fenix be flying towards golden opportunities as AEW prepares for All In?


AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

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

Rachael taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

La Mera Mera shows respect to Rachael by helping her up and hugging it out. But then DEONNA runs out there! And she SHOVES Rachael into Rosa! Then she DECKS Rachael for the hell of it before going after Rosa! Rachael drags Deonna off of Rosa, so Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna BOOTS Rosa down!

Will The Martin Brothers & The Sight to See show everyone why they’re the Coldest Trio in the Game?

Shane flips Action back up to KNEE him in the face! Ogogo and Lee get in for defense, Shane DECKS Action!! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (7/12/24)

Friday Night GrudgeDown!



Time to settle some scores!

Mia Yim takes on Nia Jax, Legado Del Fantasma goes after Corbin & Crews, and A-Town Down Under get a tag title rematch, all tonight on SmackDown!


  • Nia Jax VS Mia Yim; Nia wins.
  • Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo w/ Legado Del Fantasma VS Baron Corbin & Apollo Crews; Angel & Berto win.
  • Blair Davenport VS Naomi; Naomi wins.
  • WWE Tag Team Championships: #DIY VS A-Town Down Under; DIY wins and retains the titles.


Tiffany Stratton is here!

Worcester, Massachusetts cheers because it’s #TiffyTime! And not only that, the Center of the Universe is the NEW Miss Money in the Bank, so there is no denying she is just biding her time until she can cash-in and snatch up a championship. And Tiff gets a mic to say that this Saturday, it officially became Tiffy Time when she climbed to the Tiffy Top, took down the briefcase, and become the youngest Ms. MITB in HISTORY! The fans do cheer that! And uh, Trish Stratus may’ve been the hometown host, but Tiff was the real star of the show. Trish isn’t here to ruin Tiff’s moment, because it is Tiffy’s Time.

The fans cheer for “TIFFY TIME! TIFFY TIME!” Tiff warns Liv Morgan, Roxanne Perez and Bayley to all keep their heads on a swivel. Their reigns are on Tiffy Time. And very soon, we will all be saying “AND NEW~!” WAIT! The Role Model, the WWE Women’s Champion, Bayley herself, makes her way out to the ring. Bayley tells Tiffy that she will be the first to congratulate her on such a big victory. Bayley knows what it takes. And as someone who has such high praise lately, that must add some pressure, so Bayley is impressed Tiff proved herself right. Tiff asks Bayley why she’s even out here, and to get to the point. Out of everyone, Bayley should know it’s Tiffy Time.

Bayley smiles and says well, she doesn’t care what time it is, she just wanted to give some advice. Bayley did win her own MITB in 2019, but Tiff probably didn’t even know what WWE even was then, right? Tiff says yeah, 2019 was like a million years ago. It is 2024, and just three years into this, and Tiff is the youngest Ms. MITB ever! Meanwhile, Bayley was just home, on her couch, eating chips and all alone. Bayley will give Tiff that, so here’s one last piece of advice: If Tiff even plans to use the briefcase on Bayley, plan on making history again as the first woman to ever fail her cash-in. But wait! Here comes Nia Jax!

The Irresistible Force, the Queen of the Ring, Nia tells Bayley, “What’re you doing out here making empty threats?”  The fans boo and Nia says that’s rude to the Queen. But in case Bayley forgot, Bayley has her match against Nia at SummerSlam, where Nia will be taking that title off her. Oh, is that right? Nia steps into the ring and Bayley isn’t sure who Nia thinks she’s talking to. But this isn’t NXT Hugging Bayley, or even 2017 Bayley that Nia put on the shelf. Yeah, be proud of that, idiot! This Bayley is the GRAND SLAM CHAMPION Bayley! This is the Royal Rumble winning, WWE Women’s Champion Bayley! This is the same Bayley that will embarrass Nia at SummerSlam!

But hey, y’know what? Let’s play a little game here. Devil’s Advocate: Bayley slips on a banana peel and Nia somehow does beat Bayley. What’s Tiff to do then? Is she gonna cash in on her friend, Nia? We know there’s some PTSD from the last time- Tiff says hey, hold on! Nia tells Bayley that yeah, she’s not the hugger that Nia hurt before SummerSlam 2017. But what is she now? BBL Bayley? Nia looks at the tights and says she isn’t sure what Bayley is trying to prove playing Divide & Conquer. Nia has no problems with Tiff, Tiff is like her own personal little Barbie. Tiff smiles, and Nia says Bayley isn’t a toy. Bayley’s a victim.

And at SummerSlam, Nia will victimize her. Bayley winds up, Tiff stops her, so Bayley DECKS Tiff! Only for Nia to CLUB Bayley! Nia puts Bayley on ropes to CHOKE her, and Tiff talks trash. But here comes MIA YIM! Kendo stick SMACK for Nia! Tiff runs before she can get hit! Michin warns Nia AND Tiff, will the Queen & Princess of the Ring learn who’s The Head Baddie in Charge?


Backstage interview with Chelsea Green & Piper Niven.

They’re waiting outside Nick Aldis’ office when Byron Saxton walks over. Chelsea has a fancy neck brace on as she tells “Bryan” she has no time for his stupid questions. Did they not see the BRUTAL MITB match she went through? The whole world is now calling her, “The Mother of Mayhem,” “The Princess of Pain.” So she has no time for this! She is waiting on Sir Nicholas the Prickless so just go away! Byron says Nick- Piper asks if he did not hear her. Just GO! Git! Shoo! As he leaves, we can see Isla Dawn talking with… Blair Davenport? Could their NXT UK connection make Blair an ally against the trios coming after the tag titles?


Nia Jax w/ Tiffany Stratton VS Mia Yim!

SmackDown returns and the bell rings on this match. Nia runs up, Mia dodges to fire off hands! Mia dodges again to CHOP and KICK and KICK! Nia HEADBUTTS Mia down, Mia goes to a corner, and Nia runs in! Mia dodges then fires off forearms! The fans rally up for Mia, but Nia shoves her away. Mia runs in but Nia ELBOWS her! Nia scoops, but Mia slips into a SLEEPER! Nia RAMS Mia into buckles and is free! Bayley is ringside to coach Mia, and Mia leaps to GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Nia endures, powers up and out, but Mia comes back with a strike fest! SOABT and PELE! Mia runs up to TORNADO- NO! Nia tosses Mia away!

Nia runs to ELBOW DROP Mia! Tiff says too easy. Nia covers, ONE!! Mia upsets Nia but Nia puts her on ropes. Nia SITS on Mia to choke her! The fans boo, the ref counts, and Nia lets off. Mia goes to a corner but Nia stomps away! Nia goes corner to corner to HIP ATTACK! And she rubs it in Mia’s face, literally! The fans are torn, Bayley coaches Mia up, but Nia storms over. Mia runs up to fire off strikes! Mia runs but Nia CLOBBERS her! Nia soaks up the heat as she scuffs Mia around. Nia clamps on a cobra clutch and she leans on Mia. The fans rally, Mia fights up, and Mia fires body shots! Mia SOBATS, runs, redirects, but Nia isn’t so easily tripped!

Nia drags Mia up to TOSS her to a corner! Nia runs in to SPLASH! And then she TOSSES Mia the other way! Nia taunts Bayley, runs in and she SPLASHES Mia in the corner again! Nia says kiss this, runs in, but Mia DUMPS her out! Mia goes to the apron, but Nia blocks the Penalty Kick! Electric Chair and SLAM off the apron! Nia then CLOBBERS Mia, and soaks up the heat as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and the fans rally as Mia is on Nia with another GUILLOTINE! But Nia powers up to suplex Mia high and hard! The fans rally but Nia rises first. Nia runs but Mia dodges the elbow drop! Mia ELBOWS Nia from a corner, then LARIATS! Nia stays up so Mia DROPKICKS her! Nia staggers, Mia runs in again for more forearms! Mia whips, but Nia blocks! Nia reverses but Mia BOOTS back! Mia goes up to FLYING RANA! The fans fire up and Bayley does, too! Mia SHOTGUNS Nia down! Mia fires up and she runs corner to corner, to CANNONBALL in the corner! Cover, TWO! Mia can’t believe it!

Bayley coaches Mia and Mia climbs the corner. But Nia springs up to ROCK Mia first! Mia wobbles, Nia ROCKET LAUNCHES her! Then SENTON FLOPS as Mia moves in time! Tiff gets on the apron, sneaking Mia’s own kendo stick in. The ref is distracted, but Bayley YANKS Tiff down! And she sends Tiff into barriers! Nia has the kendo stick but Mia SHOTGUNS Nia again! Mia reels Nia in, TORNADO DDT! The fans fire up as Mia hurries to cover, TWO!! Nia survives and Mia is losing her mind! Bayley is equally frustrated but Mia KICKS and KICKS and KICKS Nia! Mia hauls Nia up, runs, but into a fireman’s carry! SAMOAN DROP!

Nia drags Mia to a drop zone, and she goes up! A-NIA-LATOR!! Cover, Nia wins!

Winner: Nia Jax, by pinfall

The HBIC did what she could against the QOTR, but now Bayley goes after Nia! The fans fire up, but Tiff CLOBBERS Bayley with her briefcase! Fans chant “CASH IT IN!” as Nia HEADBUTTS Bayley! Bayley flounders to a corner, Nia runs in to SPLASH! Then feed to Tiff’s SPINEBUSTER! Nia runs to drop a leg, brother! The fans are torn between booing and wanting Tiff to cash in. Tiff pats Nia on the back for the good work, but then temptation creeps in. The fans are getting louder, too, and Tiff calls to the ref! Is she doing it?! Nia gets right in Tiff’s face, and Tiff denies she was ever gonna try it. Tiff high-fives Nia, and they head out.

It seems The Princess will just have to wait her turn, but will she have to wait long with SummerSlam around the corner?


Solo Sikoa speaks.

“The Bloodline had all the titles. Both Heavyweight and both Tag Team Titles. It would all be the same if Roman Reigns never went soft. It takes a real Tribal Chief to stay on top of his game. And that’s why I’m here: to build a whole new family. A more powerful family. A hungrier family. A more aggressive family. And this family will rule for decades, as long as I’m the Tribal Chief. And by the end of tonight, everyone will acknowledge me.” Jacob Fatu adorns Solo with the ula fala, and they raise up their ones. What will this furious four look to do to the SmackDown roster next?


Byron Saxton interviews Andrade.

It was earlier today before the show that Byron Saxton sat down with El Idolo, and spoke on MITB. Many say that was a star making performance by Andrade. Yet here we are a week later, and now those same people are wondering what is next for him. Andrade wonders himself, “What is next?” He has said that his vision in WWE is the same. This is his destiny! That is why Andrade is- interrupted by Carmelo Hayes… And Melo asks Byron why he’s talking to Andrade when he could be talking to the real MVP of MITB, the show stealer, H1M! Andrade tells Melo to tranquilo. Andrade never said anything about being MVP. The people did.

Well, Melo says people are saying Andrade screwed Melo over. Melo should be treated better here. he is a first round draft pick, he pinned Randy Orton, he went toe to toe with Cody Rhodes on his very first night on SmackDown! Andrade tells Melo that if he wants an answer to what is next for Andrade, it’s him. Melo leaves without a word, and Andrade smirks. Will El Idolo look to humble H1M and move on to even bigger and better things?


Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo w/ Legado Del Fantasma VS Baron Corbin & Apollo Crews!

When Andrade turned them down, Angel took his frustrations out on Apollo. Apollo went for payback, got beat down for it, and of all the unlikely allies, it is the former Lone Wolf that has joined Apollo’s crew. Will they show Legado what it is to be respected? Or will Angel & “Berto” show they don’t show respect nor do they show mercy to those in their way?

SmackDown returns as Crews makes his entrance. Legado then makes their entrance, talking a lot of smack. But then Corbin helps Crews FLY and take them all out! Crews throws Angel aside, throws Berto in for Corbin, and the bell rings! Corbin SPLASHES Berto in the corner! Then he short arm LARIATS! Corbin fires up and so do the fans. Corbin then FLYING LARIATS off the ropes! Cover, TWO! Corbin tags Crews, and Crews whips. Berto reverses and RAMS Crews to then kick, CLUB and GAMANGIRI! Berto stomps away on Crews, lets off as the ref counts, and the fans boo. Berto brings Crews around to whip, but Crew reverses

Crews ELBOWS Berto down, drags him over, and tags Corbin. Crews whips to back drop! Corbin hauls Berto up, suplex and CUTTER! Cover, but Angel storms in! Corbin dodges Angel, Crews fires hands! Berto and Corbin fire hands, Crews LARIATS Angel up and out! Corbin sends Berto to Crews and he TOSES Berto out! Wait, Corbin wants to build speed!? Crews THROWS Corbin out and he takes down Berto & Angel! The fans are all fired up and SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Angel reels Corbin into a Gory Especial. Corbin endures being bent, but Berto tags in so he can slingshot and ROLLING CUTTER! Not the cleanest cut but Berto covers, TWO! Corbin stays in there but Berto KICKS him down! Berto rains down fists on Corbin, lets off to taunt Crews, and the fans boo more. Berto grins as he drags Corbin into a motorcycle stretch. Corbin endures and the fans rally up for him. Corbin fights his way around to fireman’s carry, but Berto slips free! Berto springboards, FLYING CHUCK! Cover, TWO! Corbin is still in this but Berto stays between him and Crews.

Santos says to finish this, and Berto mule kicks. Berto runs bu tinot a fireman’s carry, and DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! The two crawl, reach out, hot tags to Angel and Crews! Crews dodges to mule kick, run and BOOT! Angel staggers, takes a swing, but Crews dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! The fans fire up with Crews, and he reels Angel in. GERMAN SUPLEX, and Crews holds on! GERMAN SUPLEX again! Crews wants another, and he GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Hattrick complete, and Crews BLASTS Berto to be sure. Crews runs in at the corner, STINGER SPLASH!

Angel staggers away, Crews goes up top! Crews leaps to CROSSBODY! Cover, Berto breaks it! Corbin runs up but Berto kicks and forearms first! Berto runs in at the corner but Corbin dodges! Berto goes up and out of the ring! Santos is there to help Berto up but here comes Corbin! The Emperor dares Corbin to hit him. So Corbin does! And then he LARIATS Berto and himself into the timekeeper’s area! Crews ENZIGIRIS Angel, reels him in, gorilla press and SLAM! But Elektra Lopez gets on the apron! She distracts the ref so that Santos can KNEE Crews down! Angel drags Crews up, for the WING CLIPPER! Cover, Legado wins!

Winners: Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo, by pinfall

Santos says the numbers don’t lie! Crews & Corbin can’t compete when it’s 4v2, will anyone stop Legado from taking over?


Chelsea & Piper are still waiting.

Piper holds Chelsea’s cup for her so she can sip, and is also reading a book titles… “How to Start a Cult?” Pretty Deadly’s Kit Wilson walks up to Aldis’ door but Chelsea slaps his hand! Elton Prince says excuse them, ladies, but they need to talk with Aldis about approving the budget for Pretty Deadly: The Musical! What? Oh, that clicks. But listen up, sparkle sisters, get to the back of the line. They’ve been waiting. The boys do as told, and then LA Knight walks out of Aldis’ office! Chelsea asks “Mr. Knight” if Mr. Aldis is busy.

Uh, yeah, he is. He said he’ll call Chelsea after he’s through with a couple other things. Just wait a little longer. Chelsea gets all huffy and Knight heads to gorilla, a contract in hand. Could this be what it seems?


Randy Orton sits with Cody Rhodes backstage.

The Viper says he heard what Solo said. There’s a pretty good chance Cody will find himself in the middle of that ring with a bunch of Samoans. But Orton also knows that Cody doesn’t want him out there. But Orton needs Cody to know that like it or not, if things go sideways, Orton is going out there. Orton will always and forever have Cody’s back. Kevin Owens feels the same, but he isn’t here tonight. That’s on Orton. Kevin loves to fight, but Orton told Kevin to stay home. Kevin’s family needs him more than they do. So if Cody finds Solo in that ring tonight, he better give that big ugly Samoan a piece of his mind.

But in the end, everything eventually comes to an end. So when all this with The Bloodline is finally over, Cody will have a lot of men in this locker room coming after the title. And Orton will have his back then, too. Cody thanks Orton for that, and Orton heads out. Will the legacy of the Undisputed WWE Championship be secure, even after fighting it out with The Bloodline?


LA Knight heads to the ring!

Worcester fires up for The Mega Star as he brings his contract folder with him. Knight steps in, gets a mic, and while the fans chant his name, he says, “LEMME TALK TO YA!” Knight says MITB came and went, and let’s be honest, he won’t stand here and complain, cry or make excuses. It didn’t go his way, he got dumped out onto a ladder, and someone else grabbed that MITB contract. So then Knight thought to himself, “Money in the Bank contract or no,” it doesn’t make a difference! Knight is the walking embodiment of money in the bank! So what that got him doing, rewind a little bit.

Let’s look at the path to MITB for Knight. Here’s some footage to take a look at. Specifically, he means his qualifying match from two weeks ago, where he pinned Logan Paul to win out! Okay, cut back to Knight. You see that, you see what happened, everyone person here right now saw was Knight move on to MITB, right? “YEAH!” But let’s look a little deeper, what we really saw. Yes, Knight went to MITB. But mor importantly, he pinned the United States Champion! And with that in mind, Knight picks up his folder, he has something hot and fresh from Aldis’ office. And well, let’s just say what this has inside was just for Knight. “YEAH!”

What this has in here has Aldis’ signature already on it. “YEAH!” And what this is here, is a contract for a United States Championship match at SummerSLam! The fans fire up for that! Now the only thing missing, he looked, there’s a signature from Aldis. “YEAH!” There’s a signature from Knight himself, “YEAH!” The only thing missing is the signature of “that edgelord,” Logan Paul. So what Knight wants is Logan to come out here and sign his part right now. But don’t get too excited, because that won’t happen. Why? Surprise surprise, roll your eyes, guess who ain’t here? Logan Paul.

But Knight tells Logan Paul that he will get this contract signed. It will be Logan, it will be Knight, and at SummerSlam, Knight will own Logan, own that belt, and there’s nothing Logan can do to stop it. Not cuz Logan’s not good enough, but because Knight won’t let him! And that’s not an insult, that’s just a of life! With everybody saying, “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!!” The Mega Star is still aiming for the Maverick, when and where will Logan accept the challenge?


Blair Davenport speaks.

“Everybody wants to talk about ‘living your truth.’ Truth is, you’re weak. And the reason bad things keep happening to you is because you allow it. You’re not successful because you’re not good enough. So while you cry about not being good enough, Blair Davenport’s already taken your spot. Does that hurt your feelings? Well come and do something about it.” The Ichiban Gaijin is here, but will Naomi learn to beware Blair? Or will Blair just #FeelTheGlow?

Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill find Naomi backstage.

The #Big3 cheer their reunion and also Naomi’s win tonight. That is how you stand on business! Naomi did her thing, she looked good out there. Naomi says hey, someone had to teach Blair a lesson. Naomi says she can’t wait for Bianca & Jade to get their tag titles back. Jade says you already know that’s top priority. In fact, they were going to talk with Aldis tonight, but he isn’t even here. Chelsea and the others hear this and are shocked. They all storm off, and Naomi tells Bianca & Jade she’s glad they’re going to teach Alba & Isla a lesson. But they also need to be ready. Jade says they stay ready so they don’t have to get ready.

Bianca says Naomi did her thing. They’re gonna head out, good to see her again. Bye~! Love you~! The StrongEST Duo heads out, will Aldis and/or Pearce be able to arrange such a title rematch? But now Blair walks in. She says she doesn’t want trouble. She just wants to say that the better person won. Blair offers a handshake, and Naomi is wary. Naomi takes it, and Blair heads out. But Chelsea storms back over to say Aldis is not here! Chelsea & Piper pout and head out, and Naomi says she must’ve really gotten hit hard on Saturday. But then BLAIR ATTACKS NAOMI!! So much for sportsmanship!

Blair laughs at Naomi for falling for the trap. Will Blair make everyone beware her wrath?


WWE Tag Team Championships: #DIY VS A-Town Down Under!

Don’t worry, you aren’t seeing things. Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano only just got these titles last Friday in Toronto. However, Austin Theory & Grayson Waller are “cashing in” their rematch clause, and are hoping to take those titles right back! Will we see a bit of hot potato with the gold? Or will DIY just do it all over again?

SmackDown returns and DIY makes their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if history repeats itself!

Ciampa and Waller start, and Waller takes a swing! Ciampa dodges to ROCK and CHOP Waller, then whip him. Waller slides out, leads Ciampa on a chase, and Theory is there. Ciampa dodges Theory, gets in the ring, and then Gargano jumps in. ATDU swings but DIY dodges to then DOUBLE DROPKICK! Theory falls out, DIY TOSSES Waller out, and then Ciampa KNEES Waller back down. Ciampa holds the ropes open so Gargano can DIVE into a haymaker! Theory takes out Johnny Wrestling, and Waller jams up Ciampa! Waller POSTS the Sicilian Psycho, Theory RAMS Gargano into barriers!

Waller TORNADO DDTS Ciampa on the apron! ATDU look at the belts, claiming those are coming back home, but the fans boo while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Waller CLOBBERS Ciampa! Th efans chant “YOU SUCK!” but Aaller fires off on Ciampa in a corner. Waller then gets space, runs in, but Ciampa avoids the splash! Waller staggers, Theory tags in, and Theory stomps Ciampa down! Theory mockingly asks where Johnny went, then he goes up. Theory leaps, into a  JUMP KNEE! Theory and Ciampa are down, and Gargano rises! The fans fire up as Ciampa crawls over, hot tag to Gargano! Gargano rallies on ATDU! ENZIGIRI for Theory! Gargano dodges Waller to tilt-o-whirl but Theory runs up! So Gargano COMPLETE SHOT DDT COMBOS!

Gargano runs in at Theory but Theory puts him on the apron. Gargano GAMANGIRIS Theory, avoids Waller to MULE KICK, then he SLINGSHOT SPEARS! Cover, TWO! The fans fire up and Gargano brings Theory up.

Ciampa moves, JUMP KNEE hits Theory! Not again! And Waller turns around, into SHATTER MACHINE!! DIY sets up in the corners now and Worcester is thunderous! MEET IN THE MIDDLE!! Cover, DIY wins!

Winners: DIY, by pinfall (still WWE Tag Team Champions)

History does repeat itself as DIY wins two weeks in a row! Waller and Theory try to reason out why this happened, but then THE BLOODLINE ATTACKS! Jacob Fatu CLOBBERS Theory, then goes into the ring to YANK Gargano down into a SAMOAN DROP! Ciampa fires off forearm sand BOOTS, then he DDTS Fatu down! But Fatu just rises up! And he SUPERKICKS Ciampa! The Samoan Werewolf runs in to HIP ATTACK Gargano! Then he drags Ciampa up to whip and POP-UP SAMOAN DROP!! The fans boo but Solo Sikoa’s Enforcer just dominated the tag champs! And then he DOUBLE JUMP ARABIAN PRESS SAULTS Gargano!!

The fans lose their minds seeing that, but Fatu isn’t done! He hits the BEST MOONSAULT EVER on Ciampa!! Fatu is practically foaming at the mouth, and only now does Solo Sikoa make his way to the ring. Is this part of what Solo meant earlier tonight? What more does “The REAL Tribal Chief” have to say tonight? We’ll find out, after the break.


SmackDown returns and The Bloodline has the ring.

Fatu has finally calmed down, and Solo Sikoa has the mic. “Boston, Mass…” No, this is Worcester. But Solo still says, “ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” The fans boo as The Bloodline lifts up the ones. Solo says, “Need I remind you what happened to those that didn’t acknowledge me?” The fans chant “WE WANT ROMAN!” But Solo says Jimmy Uso, his own brother, his own flesh and blood, did not acknowledge him. And what happened? He’s gone. The Wise Man, Paul Heyman, did not acknowledge Solo. Heyman’s gone, too. And Roman… Reigns… The fans chant for “ROMAN! ROMAN!” but Solo says don’t do that now! They don’t even deserve him! They have Solo now.

And if Roman Reigns decides to come back, he will acknowledge Solo as Tribal Chief. But tonight is about Cody Rhodes. It is Cody’s turn… to acknowledge him! So if Cody’s there- Oh he sure is! The Undisputed WWE Champion, the American Nightmare, makes his way out on stage! The fans sing his song, “WHOA~ OH~!” and pyro, and Cody stares Solo down. Cody takes off his tie and looses his collar before he steps to the ring. Cody knows it’s 4v1, but he isn’t backing down. Solo has his men stand back, and Cody grabs himself a mic.

The fans cheer Cody on, and he says, “I’ve heard everything that you’re saying. I’m sure you can figure this out. We want the same thing. Now of course, gotta speak to Nick Aldis, but you might as well consider it official. SummerSlam, the Undisputed WWE Championship. BUT…! If it was really up to me, if I could make any decision, I wouldn’t be waiting ’til SummerSlam. I’d wanna do it here and now.” The fans cheer that! Cody drops his mic, but Solo has his men flank the champion. The fans chant for “RANDY! RANDY!” but Cody throws hands first! Cody ROCKS Solo, ROCKS Tama, ROCKS Loa, ROCKS Faut!

Cody catches Solo to a dragon sleeper, but Fatu SUPERKICKS! Tama & Loa mug Cody, then Fatu LARIATS him down! But here comes Randy! Tama goes out, Orton kicks him first! Same for Loa! Orton gets in, and he DUMPS Fatu out! Solo runs up but into a kick! Orton puts Solo in the ropes, drags him out, and hits the DRAPING DDT! Orton helps Cody up but Fatu is back! Fatu runs in, to CLOBBER Orton!! Tama & Loa return to mug Orton, and the fans boo as it is 3v1 on The Viper! Fatu kicks Cody out, Orton fights back against Tama & Loa! But Fatu DIVES onto Orton! Orton hits barriers and Fatu fires up!

Solo has Cody to himself but Cody fights back! Fatu is right on Cody and he fires HEADBUTT after HEADBUTT! Solo and Fatu trap Cody with the ropes! They mug Cody, and make him watch as Tama & Loa RAM Orton with steel steps! And RAM him again! Deja vu to when The Usos sidelined Orton for 18 months! Cody says no, take him! They want him, spare Orton! Fatu SUPERKICKS Orton! Solo says this is what happens to those who stand against them! Fatu SUPERKICKS Orton again! And another SUPERKICK! Tama & Loa clear the desk! Solo says this blood is on Cody’s hands! Fatu & The Guerrillas get Orton up, for the TRIPLE POWERBOMB through the desk!!

Worcester is devastated! And then Solo SAMOAN SPIKES Cody! The fans boo, the ula fala is put on Solo, and The Bloodline stands over their victims while raising the ones. Have they made the Apex Predator extinct? Are they going to end the legacy with their own hands?

My Thoughts:

An incredible SmackDown to bridge us from MITB to SummerSlam. Very good promo segment to start, and very clever of Bayley to point out that if Nia wins, Tiff definitely can’t cash in on her. And while Nia VS Mia was very good, Nia naturally wins to build her momentum. Tiff being tempted was also a good detail, and she might still be tempted along the way to SummerSlam, but I think my scenario of Tiff waiting until Bayley’s somehow survived Nia is the more likely choice. For that matter, there’s even a chance Nia screws Tiff out of her cash-in because Nia is just that selfish. That’d be some good Heel Heat on Nia since there are clearly big time Tiffy fans out there.

Great ongoing bit from Chelsea & Piper tonight, them waiting for Aldis. I wonder if that’s a nod to Chelsea having to wait forever on Vince to hear her out. Naomi VS Blair was a good match but it took a minute to get going. Naomi got a good win, and Blair pulls off a fairly good swerve, because yeah duh she’s a sore loser. I also liked that Easter egg bit of her and Isla Dawn talking. I really do think we’ll be getting Alba, Isla & Blair as a trio now that we’re seeing quite a few of those form up. DMG CTRL, the trio of Zoey, Shayna & Sonya, the #Big3 of Jade, Bianca & Naomi, WWE might be working on factions as a way to maximize the number of women getting screentime together.

Very good tag match of Garza & Carrillo VS Crews & Corbin, and I figured Santos & Lopez would be why Legado won. Now, Andrade is going to be feuding with Melo for a minute, and that’s going to be a great match, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Andrade circles back to Legado at some point. Naturally, LA Knight and Logan Paul are having their match at SummerSlam, good promo from Knight tonight and we’ll certainly be seeing Logan Paul next week to respond. I would think Logan would have no problem taking this match since he’ll want payback for the MITB qualifier, and is probably cocky enough to think this will be easy.

Great tag title rematch from DIY and A-Town Down Under, though I’m surprised it was so soon. And a little surprised that DIY won again. I almost thought they were gonna hot potato the belts and then the tiebreaker is at SummerSlam. I suppose they can still have DIY VS ATDU round 3 at SummerSlam, but at the same time, HHH loves cards with less matches for more quality. Maybe round 3 is for the SmackDown before SummerSlam like we just got to lead into MITB. And then Fatu wrecking those top teams was wild. As if this new Bloodline wasn’t already brutal, this right here could get Tama & Loa right into the tag title scene.

And of course we’re getting Cody VS Solo for the top title. Orton getting taken out like Heyman was rather wild, too, but maybe he makes a “miraculous” return where he and Kevin help Cody fight off Solo. And maybe, just maybe, Roman Reigns does return to make sure Solo does not win the title, and then getting us started on Solo’s Bloodline VS Roman’s Bloodline to go into the Fall stretch.

My Score: 8.8/10
