The party is on!

The superstars and prospects of NXT had a Spring Breakin’ Picnic! Hank is on the phone with Tank, telling him he’s missing the party of the year! Tank knows, but that can’t really be true if Hank ‘n’ Tank aren’t both there. Hank understands that. But now, to the party! Touch football, “Malik the Freak” scores big! Katana Chance says okay, but who they think gets dunked in the trunk? Tony D & Stacks or Pretty Deadly? Edris says their boys, Tony & Stacks, have this. Pretty Deadly’s getting trunked. Kayden says sure, but Pretty Deadly is craft. Either way, it’s a good thing she and Katana aren’t in that kind of match.

Then there’s Ivy whooping people in arm wrestling! The undisputed champion of Spring Breakin’ Arm Wrestling, IVY NILE! But will we hear “AND NEW” champion for Waller? Boo! Or maybe #AndStill for Melo? Javi says he could’ve won arm wrestling without arms. But he wants the last burger. Not with Dabba-Kato in his way! And then the ladies talk Jensen’s new look. It’s a good look, but he’s still not their type. Kiana got that boy wrapped around her finger, though. Briggs, Jensen & Fallon were a great trio, but tonight, Briggs & Fallon make Jensen regret his decision. Lash says, “Gurlll~! Kiana means business, and tonight, that girl’s gonna teach her a lesson, okay?”

The others are playing some good ol’ Cornholing, aka beanbag toss. Nathan Frazer explains the game to Wendy Chu and Valentina Feroz. Seems almost impossible to get it perfect, kinda like the impossibility of Andre Chase beating Bron Breakker. Frazer says just give it a shot, cuz you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Well, okay. Wendy tosses, and score! Maybe Chase does stand a chance! … Nah! And at the water fountain, the N XT Women’s Tag Team Champions, Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn, talk the Triple Threat. There is so much delusion in this division! Starting with the champ, Indi Hartwell!

Not one challenge tonight, but two? Alba senses that title could be slipping away from Indi already. “But who will walk away with the glory? Universe, send us a sign!” In comes Javi! Dabba TOSSES him into the water! Well, not quite what Isla meant. But while Javi cools off, will things only heat up in the ring?


Trunk Match: Tony D’Angelo & Channing Lorenzo VS Pretty Deadly!

The Don & The Underboss are ready to take this to how things are done back home! Will this historic and brutal match go their way? Or will Kit Wilson & Elton Prince make them fogedaboutit?

Pretty Deadly CLUB Stacks down, then return to ringside. They grab trash can lids while fans are torn. Stacks & Tony hit first! Stacks takes a lid to VAN DAMINATOR Elton! Tony just SMACKS Kit in the gut, then SMACK him on the back! Fans fire up again, and Tony looks under the ring. They bring out a TABLE! The fans are thunderous as the table is set up at ringside. Tony gets Kit, Stacks has Elton, they both scoop, but Pretty Deadly slips out to POST each of them! Pretty Deadly says NO tables, and they take it all the way to the back! Fans boo but Pretty Deadly doesn’t care. Stacks CLOBBERS Kit!

Elton goes after Stacks, but then Tony CHOP BLOCKS Elton with a wheelbarrow! Stacks SMACKS Kit with that boogey board! Stacks holds Kit against the steel steps, while Tony brings out the CROWBAR! Tony aims, but Kit gets away! The crowbar smacks steel! Elton CLOBBERS Tony! Stacks ROCKS Elton! Kit ROCKS Stacks! Tony ROCKS Kit! Tony TACKLES Kit, rolls through, and then TOSSES Kit onto Elton! They fall into the ball pit! Fans fire up, and Stacks BOOGEY BOARD SENTONS! The fans are thunderous again as NXT goes picture in picture!

Tony & Stacks storm around, then they rain down fists! They SMACK away with the boogey board, then TIP the ball pit! Pretty Deadly falls out, balls and all! Stacks drags Elton up and into the ring, he and Tony storm in. Elton begs for mercy, but Tony DECKS him instead! Tony stands Elton up, scoops him, and Stacks goes up. BACKBREAKER ELBOW DROP COMBO! Stacks & Tony talk what to do next, but Elton anchors Stacks’ foot. Kit CLOBBERS Tony! Kit throws Tony out then CLOBBERS Stacks! Kit rains down fists, then talks trash. Pretty Deadly drag Stacks up, but he fights back, only for Elton to tackle him!

Elton turns Stacks over into a BOSTON CRAB! Kit has a chair, and he puts it around Stacks’ head! Fans say “NO! NO!” but Kit goes up! Tony rushes in to ROCK Kit first! Tony TOSSES Kit away! Stacks fights free of Elton, DECKS him, and then Tony sits the chair up. Stacks pushes Elton to a corner, and Tony whips Elton, drop toehold into the chair! Kit runs up, atomic drop on the chair! Elton swings, but into an atomic drop on the chair! Pretty Deadly’s yes boys are no more! Elton hits back but Stacks CLUBS him down. Stacks wedges the chair into a corner while Pretty Deadly goes to the apron.

Elton fireman’s carries Stacks, and Kit hits the ASSISTED GUTBUSTER! Pretty Deadly talks trash on Stacks, and Kit throws down fists. Pretty Deadly mug Stacks, then bring him to a corner. They hoist Stacks up into a Tree of Woe! They stomp away on Stacks, then get a chair. Kit SMACKS Tony! And SMACKS him again! Stacks can only watch upside-down as Tony writhes. Elton brings a trash can in, he and Kit drag Tony up, double suplex onto the trash can!!

Fans lose their minds over that one, and they boo Pretty Deadly. Stacks gets free and he fires off hands! Elton DECKS Stacks then TOSSES him out. Pretty Deadly goes out, they pick Stacks up, SPILT MILK to the floor! Kit drags Stacks up, he and Elton carry him around the way, and they shove him into the car trunk! They close the trunk to keep Stacks there, and then they go for Tony. Tony rushes in but Kit DECKS him! Elton opens the trunk, to get BLASTED by the fire extinguisher! Stacks puts out Elton’s fire, then he ROCKS Kit! Tony CROWBARS Kit in the face!! Kit falls into the trunk, and the Family grabs the blinded Elton!

Vittoria per la famiglia! That is to say, the family wins! They drive off into the night, what will happen to Pretty Deadly now?


Pulling into NXT is Tiffany Stratton.

“Tonight, I give the NXT Universe a break, because the Center of that Universe claims her rightful spot at the top of the Women’s Division. Crybaby Roxanne Perez, ‘I’ve never been beaten for the title~.’ Well tonight, I’m gonna change that. Roxanne, you’re so 2022, and we’re in Twenty-Twenty-Tiff. As for Indi Hartwell, your 15 minutes of fame are over. The cutesy little underdog story you got going on is so boring. After tonight’s Triple Threat, you can go right back to moping around with that booboo face everywhere you turn. Sorry ladies, but I have ‘it.’ And tonight is Tiffy Time.”


Duke Hudson talks with Andre Chase backstage.

Duke asks what Mr. Chase is doing when his match is up next. Chase says he’s lost in his thoughts. What? But it’s time for action! Well, okay, Duke dismissed the class for tonight, it’ll just be the two of them, the two “Pillars of Chase U” out there tonight. Because it could get ugly. Bron is an animal. He’s a wrecking ball. Some would even say he’s the most dominant champion in NXT history. But guess what? You’re Andre Bloody Chase! He is a beacon of hope to thousands of students, including the MVP! So stand up! Duke makes Chase stand up! Chase, you need to stand up for the students, the faculty, and the entire institution!

Chase says that’s right! He gives Bron an Andre Chase University sized ass whooping! Chase is ready to do it for the black ‘n’ red, but will he end up nothing but black ‘n’ blue against the Big Booty Nephew?


Dijak and Dragunov have a war of words on Twitter.

Dijak told Dragunov he “made a big mistake last week.” He even told Dragunov to take this week off. Dragunov would respond with, “Thanks for the unsolicited advice, Dijak. But I like what I do, especially when I leave a mark. BTW, how’s your chest doing? You can tell me on Tuesday.” Will Hard Justice and the Czar clash physically again this week?


Bron Breakker VS Andre Chase w/ Chase U!

The student section is roaring, but Chase still has to do this by himself. Will this be a #TeachableMoment for everyone? Or will we see Bron take a bite out of this Pillar of Chase U?

The bell rings and Chase fires right off on Bron! fans fire up as Chase CHOPS and forearms and stomps away in the corner! The ref counts, Chase lets off, and Bron grabs Chase! Bron trophy lifts but Chase slips free to UPPERCUT and kick! But Bron then RAMS Chase into a corner! Bron RAMS into Chase again and again, lets off as the ref counts, then he whips Chase corner to corner. Bron runs in to RAM Chase again! Chase sputters, fans boo but plenty still bark for Bron. Bron whips and RAMS Chase again! Fans duel, Bron hauls Chase up but Chase fires hands! Bron DECKS Chase, then hauls him back up. OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

Bron grins and tells the booing fans to shut up. Bron hauls Chase up to whip him into a corner again. Bron runs in but Chase dodges! Bron POSTS himself! Duke cheers Chase on as he DROPKICKS Bron into buckles! Bron staggers, Chase runs in, but Bron puts him on the apron. Chase HOTSHOTS Bron’s arm! Chase runs back in, gets around, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Time to spell it out! C! H! A! But Bron stops him there! And he CLOBBERS Chase! Fans boo, they wanted to spell! Bron drags Chase up, trophy lifts, BREAKKER SLAM! The straps come down, for the STEINER RECLINER!! Chase taps, Bron wins!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by submission

The professor could not teach Bron anything, he already knows all he needs to be #MeanerThanEvil. Will nothing stop Bron from storming his way back up to the top of NXT?


Backstage interview with Ilja Dragunov.

McKenzie catches The Czar as he enters the building, but then DIJAK BOOTS Dragunov right down!! Dijak says Dragunov is done sticking his nose in Dijak’s business! But then Dragunov starts throwing forearms! Dijak RAMS Dragunov into a ladder, and then again, and then again! Dijak TOSSES Dragunov into even more ladders!! Dijak asks if Dragunov feels alive now, as he dribbles Dragunov off the floor! And then he grabs the garage door! Dijak starts bringing it down, but Dragunov blocks it with a leg! Dijak KICKS that leg out, then drives the door further down! Dragunov bench presses it away!

Dijak STOMPS Dragunov, then SLAMS the door down! Refs rush in to shout at Dijak but he stomps away on Dragunov! Producers and trainers rush over, they get Dijak to back off, and then they get the garage door open for Dragunov to get free. Did Dijak just sideline UNBESIEGBAR? Or will he be the one facing the consequences for his actions?


Lyra Valkyria VS Cora Jade!

The Morrigan has been daring the #GenerationOfJade to step up and back up her words, and this showdown finally goes down! Will the Punk Rock Mean Girl prove she’s the Savior of the NXT Women’s Division? Or will she be proven as a false prophet?

The bell rings and the two circle. Cora rushes in, Lyra dodges and kicks! Lyra fires off palm strikes and haymakers, and Cora goes to a corner.

Cora whips Lyra to a corner but Lyra reverses!

Cora hits buckles, Lyra rolls her up, TWO! Cora CLOBBERS Lyra! Cover, TWO! Cora grins as she keeps close. Cora SMACKS Lyra’s head off the mat! Cora then gets the arms for a motorcycle stretch! Lyra endures as NXT returns to single picture. Fans duel, “CORA SUCKS!” “NO!” Lyra endures, fights up, but Cora wrangles her down. Lyra keeps fighting, fans rally, and Lyra spins, but Cora spins it back! Lyra flips, kips and arm-drags Cora! Lyra runs in but Cora dodges to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!

Cora grins as she snatches victory away from Lyra! Will Cora continue to snake her way to the top of the Women’s Division?


Tony & Stacks are driving along.

What a night for the Family! They represented tonight! And Stacks, you were unstoppable! Anything that came his way, he was right on it. Wait, what’s that noise? It’s coming from the trunk, of course. Tony pulls over, Stacks checks it out. Stacks opens the trunk to tell Pretty Deadly that if they wanna start trouble, here’s this! And that! And this! Stacks beats the boys back into place then slams the trunk closed. Stacks gets back in the car, says it was nothing, and they head back on the road. “Pretty Deadly my ass!” But if the road trip is still going, where will it end?


NXT Championship: Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Grayson Waller!

The A Champion is finally THE Champion after Stand & Deliver in Hollywood, but the 21st Century Success Story wants to prove he is the star of this show. Will Waller win the belt to then celebrate with his Shoey? Or will nothing stop the HIM Era?

Both men gave it their all, but one miscalculation in the Grayson Waller Effect cost him! No Shoey for Waller, will the HIM Era be one for the history books?

As Trick returns to celebrate, Melo gets the mic to say, “He’s wearing all black. He’s dropping bodies left ‘n’ right. Bron Breakker, I’m talking to you. Let’s do this. NXT Battleground, Sunday, May 28th! I don’t care if you want it, I want you! My neck of the woods! Let’s talk about it!” Trick tells Bron to come on out, and both he and Melo wait.

Bron has just broken Trick Melo Gang and even part of the arena, will nothing be left standing at Battleground?


Roxanne Perez speaks.

“Growing up, my friends found themselves in Disney princesses and Barbie dolls, and I was kinda into that stuff, but I never wanted to be like them. It wasn’t until I saw WWE for the first time and I was starstruck. I watched Bayley and Lita, AJ Lee, the Bella Twins. And I thought to myself, ‘That’s what I wanna do. That’s who I want to be.’ And I see all the little girls in the crowd now with the same look on their face that I had. So these bows in my hair, they’re for each and every single one of them. They represent them. Because I remember being that seven year old fan who wore the Chuck Taylors, wore the pink stripes in her hair, wore the spikey belts.

“They looked like me, and I wanted to be like them. Tonight, I have the chance to win back the NXT Women’s Championship. And it feels like I’m not just doing it for me, but for every single little girl out there who needs to feel sane. And for the little girl in me who dreamt of doing this her entire life.” Will the Prodigy come through for everyone who’s supported her in tonight’s main event?


Joe Coffey is on the phone.

The Iron King tells Mark & Wolfgang to get him a large one. See you later. But then Joe turns around and sees Gacy. Gacy assures Mr. Coffey that it is just the two of them. Right, like Coffey trusts Gacy. Gacy says he’s an honest man! Just like Joe Coffey is the most intelligent and rational member of Gallus. The Schism has a proposal for him. Ava Raine walks up and Coffey asks what happened to it being just the two of them. Ava says The Schism wants a fair tag match for the tag titles, seeing as Gallus pinned the Creed Brothers, not The Dyad. Well, yeah, but Coffey fails to see how that’s his problem.

Gacy senses the tension. Coffey wants to punch him in the face, doesn’t he? Good instincts. Well, Gacy will give Coffey that chance, next week. And if Gacy beats Coffey 1v1, then Gallus must give The Dyad a rematch. And what’s in it for Gallus? If Coffey wins, The Dyad will never get another shot as long as Gallus are the champions. Coffey likes that. The match is made, but Ava tells Gacy not to forget about getting his. Gacy says all in due time. Is The Schism luring Gallus into a trap? Or will all the Gallus Boys be on top?


Mixed Tag: Josh Briggs & Fallon Henley VS Brooks Jensen & Kiana James!

The drama of this romcom come to life finally reaches its end. All the things Briggs & Fallon did to help their brother in arms may have blown up in their face, but can they show him the light at the last possible moment? Or is there no going back now that Jensen is doing things Kiana’s way?

The teams sort out and Briggs starts against Jensen. The boys circle, tie up, and go around. Jensen CLUBS away on Briggs, puts him in a corner and fires off more hands. Jensen lets off and Briggs is a bit dizzy already. Briggs shakes it off, they tie up again, and Jensen CLUBS Briggs again. Jensen smirks while Briggs scowls. Briggs swings but Jensen counter punches! Jensen headlocks, Briggs powers out but Jensen RAMS shoulders with him. Jensen SLAPS Briggs and eggs him on! And then again! Jensen shoves, but Briggs runs him over! Things speed up, Briggs catches Jensen for an atomic drop!

Briggs tells Jensen to snap out of it, then he whips. Jensen reverses to ROCK Briggs, then he whips Briggs to a corner. Jensen runs in to CHOP LARIAT! Fans boo but Jensen smiles as he whips corner to corner. Briggs hits buckles hard, then Jensen runs in. Briggs TOSSES Jensen out! Jensen flounders back up, Briggs grits his teeth, and Jensen paces around. Briggs waits on Jensen, fans chant “We Want Fallon!” Jensen slides in, and Kiana tags in. That means Fallon comes in, and YEEHAW! THESZ PRESS! Kiana shoves Fallon away then knees low! Kiana whips Fallon, Fallon reverses to back elbow!

Kiana still waistlocks but Fallon switches. Fallon sits Kiana down, but Kiana avoids the kick! The two stare down on the mat, then stand up to cat fight! They both pull hair, Kiana knees low again, and she TOSSES Fallon to a corner! Kiana RAMS into Fallon again and again, then lets off to say that’s how a professional does it. But then Fallon CLOBBERS Kiana! And CALF KICKS! Fans fire up and Fallon says this is what Kiana wanted! Fallon slides out, but Jensen stands in her way! Fallon asks what is wrong with him, but then Briggs WRECKS Jensen with a dropkick! And Fallon DECKS Kiana!

Fans fire up with Fallon & Briggs, and Fallon hurries in. But Jensen CLOBBERS Briggs from behind! Fallon puts Kiana on the apron, DECKS her, but Jensen catches Kiana. Kiana says she’s okay, and Jensen helps her BOOT Fallon! Briggs is on the apron, he FLYING SHOULDERS Jensen down! Fallon FLYING SHOULDERS Kiana down! Fans fire up again as Fallon & Briggs roar, and NXT goes picture in picture.

Fallon & Briggs wait on Kiana & Jensen. Those two regroup, but Fallon goes out to CLUB Kiana. Fallon puts Kiana in the ring, tells Jensen off, but then Kiana swings. Fallon dodges, waistlocks, but Kiana runs to ropes! She HOTSHOTS Fallon away, then throws her down by the hair! Kiana stomps away on Fallon, talks some trash, then taunts Briggs. Kiana drags Fallon up, whips her to the corner, and Fallon hits buckles hard. Kiana SLAPS Fallon down! Kiana talks more trash, brings Fallon up again and bumps her off buckles.

Kiana is fuming, but it was her own fault. She tried to change Jensen and it blew up in her face. Will this all knock some sense back into Jensen? He crawls to Kiana and says they still have each other. But Kiana goes to slap him!? Jensen blocks it but is still stunned. She was going to hit him? He thought she loved him. She NEVER loved him!! Kiana storms off, and now Jensen has nothing. But Briggs walks up to pat Jensen on the shoulder. Briggs says he’s still here. The two hug it out and fans cheer! Can the Country Strong rebuild stronger than ever?


Backstage interview with Dragon Lee.

McKenzie is with the Wonder Boy and says he’s been off to a great start in NXT. But what did he think of Noam Dar’s NXT in-ring return last week? Dragon says Dar made a point of watching Dragon’s first match, so Dragon did the same thing. Dar lived up to his reputation, and we saw just a little of what Dar can do. But what really interests Dragon is what Dar carries: the Heritage Cup. Dragon understands heritage, tradition and honor. But he will make sure he and Dar cross paths again. When and where will we see these two top level superstars battle to be at the “tippy top?”


SCRYPTS speaks.

“Dear Axiom, I do not lurk in the shadows to intimidate. My riddles are questions to educate. I have crawled under your mask, into your mind, polluted your thoughts and made you blind. Pay attention, please. Next week, everyone will learn for sure, which one of us believes in himself more. Sincerely, Scrypts.”


Oba Femi is only growing stronger.

He finishes throwing around kegs, chairs and basically anything else he can get his hands on. Will he start throwing around NXT superstars? His in-ring debut is next!


Indi Hartwell speaks.

“It’s been the longest journey to get here. Moved across the world to follow a dream. This is all I’ve ever wanted. They can say what they want. All I did was climb the ladder. I only won because I had help. That I’m apparently beatable. I fought and fought and fought to get this at Stand & Deliver. It wasn’t just some lucky victory. This was the result of years of dedication in the ring. Battling through injuries. Always believing in myself that one day, I would hold this title. One day, I would become NXT Women’s Champion. It could all come undone in just three seconds. Not tonight.” #IndiWrestling is ready, but will that help her overcome the odds?


NXT Anonymous is still watching.

Whoever this is spotted Sol Ruca and Dani Palmer hugging it out, and then Sol heads off to be jumped by someone! They drag her into a conference room with the obscured windows and beat her down! Anonymous hides as the mystery attacker opens the door, and then pops back up to watch as Dani finds Sol. Who is this watching everyone from the shadows? And who is it that is attacking female superstars again and again?


Oba Femi VS Oro Mensah!

Another superstar is ready to level up their NXT career! One of the biggest and strongest on the roster today, will this be a debut for the history books?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Oro wrenches to a wristlock but Oba just shoves him right down! Oba wrenches and wristlocks but Oro fights up. Oro rolls, kicks from below, but Oba wrangles him back down! Oro kips up but Oba stomps him down! Oro goes to a corner, Oba corners him, but Oro throws a forearm! And a CHOP! And a kick! And an UPPERCUT! Oro whips but Oba blocks to reverse. Oro goes up but not over as Oba catches him! Oba throws Oro down, waistlocks, but Oro throws elbows. Oba RAMS Oro into the buckles, then TOSSES him! There’s that shotput power! Oba then lines it up, and runs in to UPPERCUT!

Oro flops down but Oba drags him back up. Oba runs Oro over with a shoulder, then another shoulder! Oba straight arm levers and holds Oro up! Oro elbows free, CHOPS, CHOPS, but Oba runs him over again! Oba throws off the elbow pads and he brings Oro up. Oba whips Oro hard into the corner, runs in, but into BOOTS! Oro goes up, but Oba UPPERCUTS him to the floor! Oro stands up, but Oba drags him back into the ring! Oba hoists Oro up but Oro fights with more elbows! Oro CHOPS, bobs ‘n’ weaves, and he throws body shots, kicks and a forearm! Oro runs to forearm again! Oba stays up!

Oro runs to forearm again, but still Oba stays up! Oba blocks the kick, flips Oro, but Oro AX KICKS! Oro goes to the ropes, springboard RIDER KICK! Cover, ONE?!? Oba has strength to spare, but Oro PENALTY KICKS the arm! Oba snarls, Oro runs in, but into a choke grip! Shove and DISCUS ELBOW!! Fans fire up with Oba as Oro flounders around. Oba POP-UP POWERBOMBS Oro!! Cover, Oba wins!

Winner: Oba Femi, by pinfall

Oba almost bombs Oro through the ring with that one! Will this be nothing but the first of many massive victories?


Gigi Dolin gets on commentary to speak.

“Jacy Jayne, I know you’re watching. You didn’t hog up enough of my spotlight last week, so you had to go and run your mouth about my crummy family and what I chose to do so that I can give my brother the life he deserves! You wanna run me outta NXT? I’m not going anywhere! I’m going to spend everyday making your life a living hell! Starting next week. And since you wanna involve my family so bad, my baby brother will be sitting ringside, to watch me cave your face in!” The Toxic Avenger has spoken, will she finally end this with the Toxic Traitor?


Backstage interview with Drew Gulak & Charlie Dempsey.

McKenzie says the NXT Universe wonders why Gulak attacked Wes Lee after the match with Dempsey. Dempsey says no one remembers who wins the first battle, only who wins the war. Gulak says Wes is an incredible athlete, but he just uses all his skills completely wrong. They already knew about the inferiority complex, and Dempsey exposed Wes’s wrestling weaknesses in the ring. Sorry, what complex? Dempsey says Wes has been defending that title at a record fast pace, and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon, which is great for them.

Gulak says HE is going to put a stop to Wes, dead in his tracks, when he beats Wes down, breaks him, and becomes the NEW NXT North American Champion. “This game is a marathon, kid, not a sprint.” Will the Philly Stretcher tear the title out of the Cardiac Kid’s hands?


Tyler Bate talks with Wes Lee backstage.

The Big Strong Boi hopes the Cardiac Kid has time for a chat. Of course! Wes was just about to watch the main event anyway. Bate says Wes has been operating at peak levels, but he’s just worried Wes is gonna wear himself out. What? Well, after what happened last week, Bate feels Wes could use a hand. Wes says he’s good, though. And next week, in the title match, Gulak’s gonna take a one-way trip to the Wes Side and find out how they really do it, nah mean? Bate understands, but he has as suggestion. He wants to be in Wes’s corner to bring some balance to the situation. Wes appreciates that. Dempsey on the outside, Wes has no idea what that guy will do.

Exactly! And before hand, how about a pre-match meditation? Wes says he is down for all of that! So, staying to watch this? Of course! Who you got?


NXT Women’s Championship Triple Threat: Indi Hartwell VS Roxanne Perez VS Tiffany Stratton!

They say all champions are created equal, but you… Aw, you know the rest! Each superstar said their piece, but now it is time to back up words with actions! Will the champion continue to be #Impressive? Or will Spring Breakin’ have a heartbreaking end?

NXT returns and Roxie makes her entrance, followed by Indi’s. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is… HER!

The bell rings and Tiff gets in Roxie’s face, and then Indi’s. But then Indi ROCKS Tiff! Roxie ROCKS Tiff! They pinball Tiff around with forearms, then Indi rolls Tiff up! But Roxie sunset flips Indi! But Tiff ghost pins Roxie! Indi breaks that and all three stand off as fans cheer and NXT goes picture in picture.

Roxie goes to ropes, Tiff storms up, and Tiff talks trash before she smacks Roxie off the mat! Roxie staggers away to a corner, Tiff stomps her down, but Indi returns. Tiff DECKS Indi! Indi goes back out, and Tiff CHOKES Roxie on ropes! Tiff lets off when she’s done, covers, TWO!

Winner: Indi Hartwell, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Champion)

What was that about easily beatable?! Indi just won on one good leg! If odds and injury can’t stop her, will nothing stop #IndiWrestling from running NXT? As for Roxie and Tiffany, when and where will either challenger get another shot?


Tony & Stacks arrive at the docks.

They dump Pretty Deadly into the water, they’re sleeping with the fishes now. Those who want respect take respect, and that is what these two did tonight. But while Pretty Deadly are history, it ain’t a mystery what is next for The Family: the tag team titles! And Gallus better get smart. If they ain’t ready, they’ll end up like Pretty Deadly. Now that The Don & Underboss took care of business, now it’s time to celebrate! Is this truly the last we’ve seen of Kit Wilson & Elton Prince?

My Thoughts:

A great Spring Breakin’, and a few surprising outcomes, even. The Trunk Match was a great opener, and I figured Tony & Stacks would win. As we just saw at the end there, Tony & Stacks still want to be tag team title contenders, but we also got a good promo from Joe Gacy and Joe Coffey. Now, the newest news is that Rip Fowler & Jagger Reed, aka The Dyad, aka the Grizzled Young Veterans, aka Zack Gibson & James Drake, were DENIED their release, mostly because HHH still really likes them. Maybe Coffey wins to deny The Dyad their chance, and the WWE Draft is used to call Gibson & Drake up to RawDown.

And speaking of, I guess Pretty Deadly is dead? They got thrown in the river, tied up somehow, presumably never to be seen again. Maybe they return as almost undead Pretty Deadly, or maybe they also show up via the Draft to be part of RawDown. Honestly, if they were being called up, I would’ve preferred to see Tony & Stacks drop Pretty Deadly off on Friday for “Boss Haitch.” But either way, Tony & Stacks VS Gallus is definitely a great possibility for Battleground, or the Summer. And with that feud, I’d love if they played up all the mafia/mob movie stuff, even though we already had Stand & Deliver: Hollywood.

Of course Bron won against Chase, but I’m not sure “Meaner Than Evil” fits him. Sure, it’s a great quote from Yellowstone the series, but that seems like an odd thing for Bron to reference. But after we got a great match from Melo VS Waller, which of course Melo was winning, I did like that Melo called Bron out. Bron claimed he didn’t want the title, but obviously him Spearing Melo through a wall says otherwise. It’s hard to say if Bron is being called up any time soon, especially now that he’s getting to explore his Heel side, but I don’t see him winning the title back after only two months for Melo. As for Waller, maybe he’s getting called up? He’s already a complete character, and it isn’t unheard of for someone to be called up without winning a title.

Good match for Lyra VS Cora, though not so thrilling that it needed to wait for a special occasion. Cora’s cheating didn’t even really make sense. She moved the steel steps aside to get her kendo stick, but then those didn’t come into place, and I’m not sure why a weapon distraction was needed just to jam Lyra’s leg. But surely this is just the first match, maybe we’ll get a rematch at Battleground. Good promo from Dragon Lee calling out Noam Dar, good promo from Gigi Dolin calling out Jacy Jayne, and good promos from Gulak & Dempsey and then Wes & Tyler. All great matches set up, can’t wait to see them all play out.

Decent promo from Scrypts, though the audio kinda normalized at the end, letting Reggie’s voice through. But after Axiom has punked Scrypts out physically and verbally, Scrypts just comes off as trying too hard. I hope the match is great, though, because if Scrypts loses now, he’s just done. Meanwhile, NXT Anonymous was so close to figuring out who this female assailant is, but hid just so they wouldn’t be exposed. What NXT Anonymous should expose is where Oro Mensah’s push went. Oba Femi had a great debut, and Oro did get some stuff in, but of course Oba wins. Oba could be really big, as he has size and ability. We just need to see if he has charisma on the mic.

Really good stuff in the Mixed Tag match, but I was surprised the Faces won. I thought Jensen & Kiana were gonna win to keep their story going, and then he’d inevitably cost her the top title and that’d break them up. But I guess with the loss at Stand & Deliver, the loss after Stand & Deliver, and then this loss here, she had it and decided to quit now. Jensen returns to the fold, but I’m not sure what happens with them now. And then, after really good promos from each, we got a great Triple Threat for the NXT Women’s title. That was very scary when Indi went out for a moment because of her leg, but apparently she wasn’t so hurt that she couldn’t finish the match.

And Indi winning was the surprise in itself. I thought this was the time to send Indi up to RawDown, but maybe she’s sticking around a little longer. I suppose the Draft could still bring her up and force her to vacate the title, in a similar move to when Paige debuted and won the then Diva’s Championship. But either way, this does compel Roxie and Tiffany, but mostly Roxie, to figure out what’s next.

My Score: 8.8/10

Kassidy runs but Caster CLOBBERS him! Tag to Billy and they mug Kassidy.

Billy brings Kassidy to an open corner, stomps and ROCKS him on repeat, then lets off to smirk at the Hardys. He dares them to do something, but Matt tells Billy to suck it! So Billy DECKS Matt!

A huge win for the champions, and the Scissor World Tour continues! In fact, it is heading to Seattle for WrestleDream’s Zero Hour! TMDK’s Shane Haste, Mikey Nicholls & Bad Dude Tito are waiting, will they show The Acclaimed that The Mighty Don’t Kneel?


Eddie Kingston speaks.

“Well folks, tonight, it’s me and Big Rock, Rocky Romero, for the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship. Rock, I got nothing but respect for you, dawg, so it’s gonna be an honor and a pleasure to defend this against you. You’re the man that got me into the G1. You’re the man that got me-” Wait, Team Triple J is interrupting. Jay Lethal says that if we’re talking honor and respect, Eddie is standing here with two titles on his shoulders, and that is worth respecting. But Lethal can’t get behind how Eddie is the ROH World Champion. Lethal dedicated his life to that title! His blood, sweat, tears, all to honor a tradition that meant that every person to hold that title would be a pure athlete!

And Eddie, you are no pure athlete! Now as for this NJPW Strong Openweight title, Lethal doesn’t care if Eddie wins it or loses it here tonight. He really doesn’t. But he just cares that Eddie is unfit to be ROH World Champion! Eddie says okay, he’s got Lethal. But excuse his back, he’s gotta go beat up Romero. The Mad King leaves, but will he still have both crowns going into WrestleDream?


AEW shares an interview from after last week’s Collision.

Lexi Nair was with Andrade El Idolo after he was bandaged up from the beating Bullet Club Gold gave him. He almost won, but Juice Robinson interfered. What was that about? Andrade says everyone saw that Andrade had White beat. But the question for Juice is… “Do you have a problem with me? With Andrade El Idolo? Lemme tell you something. See you Saturday in Seattle!” Andrade wants his revenge on Rock Hard, will he get it on WrestleDream Eve?


NJPW Strong Openweight Championship: Eddie Kingston VS Rocky Romero!

The Mad King beat Kenta at NJPW Independence Day back in July to have his first singles title under the NJPW banner. And now he defends it against Azucar as a favor for getting him in the door. Will Rocky repay this favor by taking this title from Eddie? Or will Eddie still head to Seattle as a double champion?

The introductions are made, the NJPW belt is raised, and we see who is truly NJPW Strong!

The bell rings and fans rally up for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” The two circle, Rocky tests things with a kick but Eddie stays back. They feel things out, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Eddie waistlocks, Rocky wrenches, wristlocks, but Eddie clinches. Fans rally, Rocky keeps on the wristlock but Eddie powers through to wrench and wristlock back. Rocky rolls, breaks free and DROPKICKS! Fans are torn as Rocky swaggers, but he and Eddie reset. They feel things out, knuckle lock, and Rocky knees low. Rocky headlocks, grinds the hold, but Eddie powers up and out. They RAM shoulders, but Eddie stays up with a smirk.

Fans fire up as Rocky smirks back, but then pie faces Eddie! Rocky runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, and RANAS! Eddie bails out, Rocky builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit but Eddie stays up, so Rocky goes again! DIVE and Eddie drops to his knees! Rocky keeps going, and he DIVES for the hattrick, only for Eddie to catch him! Stalling suplex, to the floor! Fans rally behind Eddie while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Eddie stands, stretches out his back, and then he gets Rocky up and into the ring. Cover, TWO! Eddie keeps cool, and also chooses not to rain down fists, instead clamping on a chinlock. Rocky endures as Eddie grinds him down, and fans rally up. Eddie cranks the headlock but Rocky refuses to give up. Rocky fights up, throws elbows, but Eddie knees him low! Eddie whips to knee low again, then whips for another knee! Eddie whips but Rocky rolls him up, TWO! Rocky BUZZSAWS Eddie, then TORNADO DDTS! Both men are down and a standing count begins. Rocky stirs at 3, crawls over, and he brings Eddie up.

Eddie pushes Rocky, runs, but into an IRON OCTOPUS! Eddie endures, pries at the hold, and pops free, only for Rocky to wrangle him with a ghost pin! TWO, and Eddie goes to ropes. Rocky storms up, KICKS Eddie in the back, but Eddie just grimaces. Eddie eggs Rocky on so Rocky KICKS him again! Eddie growls and eggs Rocky on more as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Rampage returns and Eddie suplexes, but Rocky knees free! Rocky knees low, Eddie rebounds, but into a JUMP KNEE! Eddie goes to ropes, Rocky storms over and brings him up through the ropes, to KICK! Eddie eggs Rocky on even though he’s stuck, so Rocky SLAPS Eddie! Eddie SLAPS Rocky! Rocky SOBATS! Then Rocky goes up a corner to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Eddie is still in this and Rocky argues the count but the ref says it was fair. Rocky drags Eddie up, cravats, but no Sliced Bread! Eddie runs in to clothesline in the corner! And MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans fire up and Eddie hoists Rocky up top!

Eddie climbs up behind Rocky, stands him up, but Rocky throws hands! Rocky CLUBS Eddie, cravats, and hits SUPER SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Eddie survives, and Rocky grits his teeth. Rocky pumps up and fans rally. Rocky runs in to clothesline! That’s one-ever! Two-ever! But URAKEN stops that! URAKEN again!! Eddie drags Rocky into the STRETCH PLUM!! Rocky taps, Eddie wins!!

Winner: Eddie Kingston, by submission (still NJPW Strong Openweight Champion)

Azucar could not dethrone The Mad King, but he still shows Eddie respect with a handshake and hug. Eddie is still NJWP Strong, but will he have to fight even harder to survive The Wrestler, Katsuyori Shibata?

Wait! That’s Shibata’s music! Shibata is HERE! He goes into the ring and shakes hands with Eddie. These two respect each other, and that means they will give it everything they’ve got! Will Eddie still be a two belt king? Or will Shibata become a TRIPLE CROWN Champion?


Aussie Open speaks.

Mark Davis says he is so tired. So tired of hearing the “top blokes” walk around here the last year, hubris unchecked, lying to the people that they are the best in the world. Kyle Fletcher says that for the last 365 days, everything Aussie Open has done has been to get back to FTR. When FTR beat them a year ago, it broke Fletcher. Fletcher felt like a failure and felt lost. So what he wants more than anything is to make FTR feel that pain. This Sunday, Aussie Open takes the AEW World Tag Team Championships, burns down the legacy of #7StarFTR, and from the ashes, rebuild a new empire that they will stand atop of to proclaim that THEY are the best tag team in the world!

The Aussie Arrow and Dunkzilla are ready to bring down Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, will they fulfill that WrestleDream?


The Righteous VS Caleb Crush & Gunnar!

Speaking of tag titles, Dutch & Vincent are aimed at the ROH World Tag Team Championships! However, Adam Cole will be out with injury so it’ll just be Maxwell Jacob Friedman meeting them in Seattle. Will this tune-up prove to be more than enough going into that tag title handicap match?

The teams sort out, but then Dutch just CLOBBERS Crush & Gunnar! Fans boo as Dutch says just a few more days and those titles will be theirs! Vincent rains down fists on Crush, then drags him up to UPPERCUT! Vincent bumps Crush off buckles, tags in Dutch, and the Righteous mugs Crush before the BOSS MAN SLAM! Gunnar staggers up but Dutch feeds him to Vinnie’s KNEE! Then Vinnie feeds him to a BOSS MAN SLAM! Tag to Vinnie, fans are torn as the Righteous pace around Crush. Vinnie snaps his fingers, then cravats, AUTUMN SUNSET! Cover, Righteous win!

Winners: The Righteous, by pinfall

A swift and dominant win, these are the two men coming for the tag titles! Will The Righteous purge ROH of the “false friendship” that is the brochachos? Or are even two Righteous men combined not on the level of the Devil?


Ortiz sits alone in a room.

He looks back on his career alongside Mike Santana. They were at the top of their game coming into AEW, but then it ended up going downhill. There’s even audio from Konnan touching on how Ortiz and Santana stopped talking to each other and how Konnan was saddened by that. Ortiz has the footage stop there. What will it take for him to get Santana to talk to him?


Darby Allin speaks.

After replaying what Christian Cage said just last Wednesday on Dynamite, the Relentless One reiterates that he is NOT losing in Seattle, Washington! Will Darby defend home turf against Captain Charisma?

Nick Wayne speaks.

He knows Darby has a lot to say about Christian Cage, and all of that will be part of the Countdown special. But Nick also knows Darby’s actions will speak louder than his words at WrestleDream. And although Darby told Nick not to be there ringside, Nick doesn’t really want to anyway because of what Christian & Luchasaurus are capable of. So, while they let Christian and Darby settle their business, how about Nick and Luchasaurus settle theirs? For months and months, Luchasaurus walked around here while another man held his title. And Luchasaurus followed Christian around like he was some kind of father figure.

And Nick isn’t sure what it is about Christian where he thinks he can even be such a figure to “us Lost Boys,” but Nick had a father. And he told Nick at a young age “to never leave your debts unpaid.” Nick owes Luchasaurus. At Wembley Stadium, Luchasaurus choke slammed Nick onto a skateboard and Nick never forgot it. Nick will repay Luchasaurus this Sunday during Zero Hour. And Nick will even hand Luchasaurus a receipt. Nick brings his own skateboard, will he grind it right into the Right Hand of Destruction?


BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

AEW is going to do it big for WrestleDream Eve as, with Zack Sabre Jr. on commentary, we see an 8 Man Tag! FTR teams with Bryan Danielson & Wheeler Yuta to take on Aussie Open, Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey! Plus, Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega test their tag team chemistry against The Gates of Agony! Will The Ocho & The Cleaner survive Toa Liona & Bishop Kaun to take on the Don Callis Family? And Julia Hart gets in action to build some last minute momentum, will she be ready for Kris Statlander and their TBS Championship match set for Sunday?


Backstage interview with Zack Sabre Jr.

Renee Paquette is with The Front Man of TMDK, and says we’re just days away from WrestleDream, where ZSJ takes on The American Dragon, Bryan Danielson. ZSJ just came off a three week tour in NJPW and just got here to the States, is he worried at all about acclimating? ZSJ asks Bryan “Dragon Bullocks” Danielson, “Where are you, darling?” As Renee just said, ZSJ got off a 16 hour flight from Tokyo and is feeling fresh as a daisy. But perhaps this company’s keeping Bryan wrapped head to toe in bubble wrap, or keeps him in a giant Zorb ball. At this point, a strong gust of wind will knock Bryan over.

And is ZSJ supposed to be honored that Bryan chose him as part of the year long retirement tour? Newsflash: Bryan barely has a weekend. This Sunday isn’t just about finding out who the best technical wrestler is, no no. Bryan has retired once in Seattle, so ZSJ will make it final. Ya like that? The final retirement~! Submissions in Seattle, see you on Sunday. The NJPW World Television Champion has put Bryan on notice, but will he be able to slay the American Dragon?


AEW Women’s World Championship #1 Contender’s match: Ruby Soho VS Hikaru Shida!

While the Outcasts stand at two members, Saraya is looking forward to a friendly showdown with the Runaway in a little under two weeks! But will Ruby make sure there is No Future for the Shining Samurai? Or will Shida take down one Outcast to go after another?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans fire up as Ruby and Shida step up, and they’re on Shida’s side. Ruby shoves, runs, and RAMS Shida, but Shida just fires up! Ruby headlocks, Shida throws body shots, and then she powers out. Shida then runs past Ruby to run Ruby over! Fans duel, Shida has the majority, and she goes to the corner. Shida climbs up but Ruby slips away before any fists can rain down! Shida is annoyed but she waits on Ruby to return. Ruby takes her time going to the apron, steps in at 6 of 10 but wants Shida to stay back. Shida gets annoyed as the ref keeps her back, but then Ruby pulls Shida’s hair to throw her down!

Ruby throws hands, puts Shida in the corner, then RAMS into her again and again! Fans boo but Ruby runs, only to miss! Shida ROCKS Ruby, then climbs up to rain down fists! Ruby gets away before three, runs back in but into a BOOT! Shida bumps Ruby off buckles, climbs up and rains down those fists! Ruby slips out at five to YANK Shida down! Ruby whips, Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Shida then drags Ruby up, puts her in yet another corner, and tries one more time! Shida rains down fists, and goes all the way to TEN! Fans fire up with Shida and she kicks Ruby out, to then MISSILE DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Shida drags Ruby up, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Ruby CLUBS away on Shida to stop the lift, then shoves her to a corner. Ruby runs in, Shida dodges, but Ruby ELBOWS her! Ruby goes up to hit DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Ruby digs Shida into the buckles, lets off as the ref counts, and then brings Shida up to snapmare. Ruby covers, TWO! Ruby throws down fists now, but lets off with a smug smirk. Ruby puts Shida on ropes to CHOKE! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and then Ruby has Shida in the ropes to throw knees! A shoutout to Saraya, and Ruby lets off at 4. Ruby stalks Shida, looms over her, and pushes her around. Shida pushes back but Ruby eggs her on.

Shida ROCKS Ruby, then fires again! Ruby claws Shida’s face! And throws her down by her hair again! The ref reprimands, but Ruby clamps on a straitjacket stretch! Shida endures, but Ruby grinds her into the mat! Fans rally, Shida fights up, and she arm-drags free! Ruby returns to CLOBBER Shida! Cover, TWO! Ruby is annoyed but Shida grabs at Ruby’s hair! Ruby CLUBS Shida, drags her up, and stomps a hand! Shida scrambles to a corner while the ref reprimands but Ruby stomps a mudhole in. Ruby lets off as the ref counts, and Ruby storms around. Shida drags herself up, but Ruby CHOKES her on the ropes!

The ref counts while Ruby BITES Shida’s ear! Ruby lets off at 4, drags Shida up, but Shida ROCKS her! And again! And again! And again! But Ruby knees low! Ruby talks trash, whips Shida to ropes, but Shida ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS knock both women down! Rampage returns to single picture as the standing count climbs. Fans rally, both women are down at 5 of 10 but Shida goes to ropes. Shida snarls, she and Ruby stand at 7, and they storm up. Shida fires a forearm, Ruby gives it back! Shida throws another, so Ruby gives it back! They go back and forth, harder and harder, faster and faster!

Ruby gets the edge, but Shida ROCKS her! And ROCKS her! And ROCKS her again! Shida whips to JUMP KNEE! Shida then suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! Shida fires up again and the fans are with her! Shida aims, KATA- NO, Ruby ducks and bails out! Fans boo but Shida goes out to pursue! Shida runs in, jumps off the steps, and DROPKICKS Ruby down! Fans fire up again and Shida stands Ruby up. Shida torture racks Ruby, then goes to the ramp!? Fans are thunderous but Ruby fights free! They throw forearms, and CHOPS! Shida CLUBS Ruby, Ruby throws body shots, but the count is climbing!

They both hear it’s 8 of 10 and start sprinting! They both slide in at 9.5!! Fans are thunderous and then Ruby swings, but Shida blocks! Ruby HEADBUTTS, blocks a kick, then KICKS back! SAIDO! Cover, TWO! Shida survives and Ruby grows frustrated. Ruby goes to a corner, and she takes Shida’s kendo stick for her own! The ref stops Ruby, takes the kendo stick, but then Ruby brings out the spray paint! Shida and the ref both block that and they’re all fighting over it! Down goes the ref!! Shida and Ruby are both stunned, but then Ruby HEADBUTTS! DESTINATION UNKNOWN! But no ref to count the cover!

Ruby is furious, she would’ve had this! But then she sees the kendo stick! Ruby grins as she wields Shida’s weapon! Fans boo, but Shida blocks the strike to kick and HEADSHOT! Then KATANA KICK!! Cover, but still no ref! Wait, here comes Aubrey! Aubrey slides in, counts the cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Shida fires up! Shida puts Ruby in a drop zone, goes up the corner, and she METE- NO! Ruby dodges to then STO! Ruby drags herself up the corner, goes to the very top, and STAGE DIVE SENTONS onto knees! And then FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Shida won’t stop there!

Shida hauls Ruby up but Ruby wrenches to NO FUTURE KICK! But Shida rebounds to KATANA!! Cover, Shida wins!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW Women’s World Champion)

The Shining Samurai takes down The Runaway, but wait! Here comes Saraya! #TitleTuesday is coming, will that be a good Knight for the champ? Or will Shida take this belt back to become a historic THREE-TIME champion?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, especially as the go-home to WrestleDream. I figured the title matches would end with the champions retaining, but we got really good stuff out of Acclaimed VS Hardy Party and Eddie VS Rocky. As for their title defenses on WrestleDream, I don’t see TMDK taking the trios titles as this will be their AEW debuts. And as I’ve said a few times already, Eddie isn’t losing both belts he worked so hard to have so soon. Plus, it feels like there’s some tension between NJPW the company and Shibata, or else Shibata would already be NJPW Strong Openweight Champion and not one of ROH’s champs.

Speaking of Eddie, good promo from him before his match with Rocky, and good interaction with Team Triple J. I wasn’t exactly expecting Jay Lethal to be Eddie’s first actual feud for the ROH World Championship, but I suppose it does make sense as Lethal was a major player in ROH. I hope these guys actually show up on ROH programming, but also, Tony Khan wants this feud to be seen so it’ll end up on AEW programming instead. Y’know, just like all these other ROH title stories outside of the AEW Women’s title.

Good squash from The Righteous, and I’m really curious as to how the tag title match goes on Sunday. There’s a lot of stuff MJF still has to do with Cole, Roddy and The Kingdom, and now this intrigue with Jay White, Bullet Club Gold and the backstage attack at the end of Dynamite. I still feel it should’ve been The Kingdom in the PPV match anyway, but it seems they were going to drag this story out even before Cole hurt his foot. Good promo from Nick Wayne to call out Luchasaurus, but I feel like Luchasaurus ends up winning that match just to make a point of Nick not being able to show up ringside for Darby.

Good promo from Andrade to call out Juice for this week’s Collision, and I’m still wondering if/when La Faccion Ingobernable helps Andrade against Bullet Club Gold. For that matter, why can’t MJF be paying LFI to beat up on White and the BCG? He’s had business dealings with Andrade & Rush before, let’s strike that up again for some continuity. Really good promo from Aussie Open ahead of their tag title match, and from ZSJ to call out Bryan. That 8 Man Tag tomorrow night is going to be good stuff, and perhaps rather telling about where the PPV matches go. The only reason I don’t see Aussie Open winning against FTR is because of that big Fatal 4 Way tag contenders match, but who knows, maybe Aussie Open wins to bring the AEW belts to NJPW events as they take on like Goto & Hashi.

And of course, a great main event from Shida and Ruby. Seems a little silly to set up Ruby as a contender, wouldn’t that just end up in a Finger Poke of Doom situation with Saraya? Which therefore meant Shida was winning. Saraya VS Shida for this Title Tuesday Dynamite is going to be good stuff, but something makes me feel like Ruby is just gonna help Saraya retain. And not to be mean to Shida, but if she’s already a two-time champ, I don’t see her becoming three-time so soon. Why not get Shida in on the TBS Championship story? Britt Baker wants to be the first to have held both titles in AEW, but Shida should want that distinction, too. Then that lets us have Britt VS Shida as we should’ve gotten by now given everything else we’ve been seeing lately.

My Score: 8.7/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (9/29/23)

King VS Emperor to determine a champion!



One way or another, the US title belongs to the LWO!

Rey Mysterio defends his WWE United States Championship against friend and protege, Santos Escobar! But will things stay friendly between them?


  • Jimmy Uso w/ The Bloodline VS Karl Anderson; Jimmy wins.
  • Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller VS Cameron Grimes; Theory wins.
  • WWE United States Championship: Rey Mysterio VS Santos Escobar; Rey wins and retains the title.
  • Charlotte Flair VS Bayley w/ Damage CTRL; Charlotte wins.


The Bloodline is here!

Fans boo as Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa & Paul Heyman head to the ring. And Jimmy is definitely hyped over how he and Solo took down AJ Styles and John Cena, putting the tag team match at Fastlane into question. Heyman has the mic to introduce himself, but the fans keep on booing. His name isn’t “Boo,” he’s Paul! Heyman! And tonight, a rare  opportunity that he doesn’t have to do this into the phone but live to the world here from SmackDown, in the hell hole of Sacramento, California. “We ACKNOWLEDGE our Tribal Chief!” The Bloodline throws up the ones, and Heyman says, “And so do each and every single one of you!”

The fans boo, though some do raise the fingers. Heyman asks us why do they acknowledge Roman… Reigns? Because it is in Roman’s name that last week, the second greatest of all time, John Cena, took a beating at the hands of the Bloodline in a way Cena hasn’t taken in at least a decade. And to wit, Heyman calls our attention to the Bloodline version of the Zapruder Film. Heyman plays footage from just last week, where Cena was the only one who signed the contract to have a match for Fastlane. Cena hoped AJ Styles was going to be his partner, but then the Bloodline struck first and hospitalized AJ Styles.

And back to present, fans are booing but Jimmy’s almost cracking up. Heyman says not to get involved in Cena’s business, but a little birdie told Heyman that there are some transportation issues this evening. And while Cena is expected to make it here, you can’t see him because Cena is NOT here. But y’know who else ain’t here? AJ Styles! And why is that? Because he’s lying in a hospital bed, watching them on SmackDown and- Jimmy holds his hand out for the mic? Heyman says he wasn’t done but Jimmy snatches the mic. “Sacramento! The Bloodline is now in your city!” Heyman sighs while Jimmy raises the one.

Jimmy tells the Wise Man, you are too kind. The real reason Cena isn’t here tonight is because he’s scared! Scared of  one JIM USO! Jimmy says if Cena is smart, he’ll stay far, far away. If not, they’ll take care of him like they did the Phenomenal One! The one who built the house, place, face- KARL ANDERSON CLOBBERS SOLO! Then he TACKLES Jimmy! Jimmy gets up but Karl clotheslines him up and out! Fans fire up for Karl as he represents for The OC! Karl says he told Styles not to get in Bloodline business and now Styles is in the hospital. So now, this is OC business! Any one of them, get in the ring with him!

Fans fire up but Heyman has Solo stand down. Heyman whispers things to The Enforcer, and then Solo tells Jimmy to handle this or he’ll do it for him. Jimmy says he’s got this. Solo doesn’t return the high-five, but will Jimmy return fire on the Machine Gun?


Jimmy Uso w/ The Bloodline VS Karl Anderson!

SmackDown returns and the match is going as Karl bumps Jimmy off buckles! Then CHOPS! And fires off haymakers! The ref counts, Karl lets off but then stomps a mudhole! Karl lets off to tell Heyman & Solo they made this personal. Karl stands Jimmy up but Jimmy swings. Karl dodges to JUMP KICK! Karl says he told Styles not to get involved but too late now. Karl whips, Jimmy BOOTS back! Jimmy runs, but Karl gives him a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Heyman is worried but Solo is stoic as Jimmy survives. Karl storms up on Jimmy, UPPERCUTS him to the corner, then UPPERCUTS again!

Karl brings Jimmy up to the top rope, ROCKS him with rights, then climbs. Solo steps forward and that distracts Karl, as well as the ref. Jimmy CLAWS Karl’s eyes! The ref misses it but fans boo as Jimmy rains down fists on Karl. Jimmy snarls, goes to a corner, and he SUPERKICKS Karl down! Jimmy goes to the corner, climbs up, and scowls at the booing fans before the USO SPLASH! Cover, Jimmy wins!

Winner: Jimmy Uso, by pinfall

Heyman is relieved and he whispers something more to Solo. Jimmy may be getting himself into trouble, but he’s also getting himself out, will this get Jimmy back in the Bloodline?

Wait, Karl isn’t done! He gets up to throw more hands with Jimmy! Solo storms in to hit the SAMOAN SPIKE! Solo roars as Karl is down, no back-up even possible with both Styles and Gallows hurt. Is the OC no longer a problem for The Bloodline? Wait, Michin is here! She SLAPS Jimmy right down! Fans are thunderous as she storms to the ring. Jimmy asks what the heck! Mia Yim packs a punch, will that knock some sense into Jimmy?


Backstage interview with Santos Escobar.

Cathy Kelley is with The Emperor of Lucha, and says that he faces his mentor and LWO teammate, Rey Mysterio. Where is his mind at tonight? Santos says his mind is focused, but his stomach has butterflies. But this match is about heart. And Santos has already said this is a dream match for him, and he has been working his entire life for it. Now, with the whole world watching, he has a chance to make the dream come true. He never gives up on his dreams, and he will fight for them, so Rey is in for the fight of his life. May the best man win. Will it be Emperor or King of Lucha that reigns as the United States Champion?


The Bloodline regroups backstage.

Jimmy is fuming and he yells at a production staff member just for looking at him. He asks another if they saw what happened, then just shoves the guy down! Jimmy storms off, Solo follows and Heyman has the staff relax. Then he puts in a call to Roman Reigns. What will The Tribal Chief have to say about Jimmy’s attitude?


It’s an all new Grayson Waller Effect.

The Aussie Icon, the Moment Maker, the Dynamite From Down Under is already in the ring on his set, and he says what a wild night already. Cena may be the greatest of all time, but he ain’t the greatest at being on time! Hah! But don’t worry, because Waller is here to save the show. Fans boo but Waller thanks them. Waller’s guests just keep getting bigger, and this is literal given the physical specimen. He has done everything in the WWE as a performer, but not as a talent scout. But that’s alright, he gets what he’s always been missing: the Waller rub! Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the All Mighty Bobby Lashley!

Fans cheer as Lashley makes his way out and Waller does some push-ups so he looks at least a little bigger standing next to him. They shake hands and then sit at the desk. Waller says he wasn’t lying when the guests keep getting bigger, right? How does he fit into the suit? But Waller appreciates Lashley being on the show, especially after the week he’s had. His boys, the Street Profits had a devastating loss last week. Lashley says he made a mistake. He was looking for the next big thing, he thought the Profits had what it takes to do whatever they want, but seems not. Back to the drawing board, huh?

Wow, that must be hard for the Profits to hear. But yeah, if you’re looking for a tag team, they need to be willing to do whatever it takes. A team with unbridled charisma! A team that is undefeated! Maybe a team like Austin Theory & Grayson Waller! Lashley’s stare makes Waller slow his roll. Lashley knows all about Theory, that’s a pass. Yeah, but Theory’s changed! If you get to know him, he’s a good bloke! And- Wait! Here come the Street Profits! Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins came dressed to match Lashley, and Lashley seems rather upset and confused. The Profits step into the ring, mics in their hands.

Lashley steps to them, and he stops Dawkins before he gets started. No excuses, no reasons. If they want something out of Lashley, they need to prove it. Lashley goes to leave, and then the Profits look to each other. They storm out after Lashley and get up in his face! Lashley says he told them what to do. Now go do it. He keeps on moving, and Waller says how awkward. Hey, light the beam for the 153 million hit man, Austin Theory! Theory makes his entrance, walking past Lashley on the stage, and then continues down the ramp. He smirks at the Profits and goes to the steps, with Waller being the only one cheering.

But will it be A-Town Down as Theory faces Cameron Grimes? Or will SmackDown go TO~ THE~ MOON~?

Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller VS Cameron Grimes!

SmackDown returns, Theory is busy looking at NXT’s Dragon Lee watching from the front row, and the bell rings. Theory turns around into a BOOT from Grimes! Grimes fires off KICKS, UPPERCUTS, and then CHOPS! Grimes whips, Theory reverses but Grimes CLOBBERS Theory! Grimes keeps moving and he CLOBBERS Theory again! Atomic drop, then KICK! Then a KICK, run, and SHOTGUN dropkick! Cover, ONE! Another cover, ONE! Theory scrambles, Grimes has the leg, and Grimes drags Theory back. Theory kicks free, Waller coaches Theory up and Theory ELBOWS Grimes! And throat chops!

Theory throws down clubbing hands while fans boo, but Theory shouts at everyone. Theory brings Grimes up, talks trash, but Grimes eggs him on! Grimes fires off fists, body shots, then backs Theory to a corner. Grimes whips, Theory reverses, then Theory runs in. Theory blocks a boot but Grimes ENZIGURIS! Grimes goes up, leaps, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Theory hangs tough and Waller relaxes. Grimes aims, and he BUZZ- NO, Theory ducks! So Grimes backflips to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Theory survives but Grimes storms up on him in the corner. Grimes KICKS Theory against ropes!

Grimes runs, then he clotheslines Theory out of the ring! Grimes goes to the apron, and he PENALTY KICKS Theory down! Fans fire up with the Carolina Caveman as he takes it to Mr. ATL. Waller talks trash, though, and Grimes stares him down. Theory POSTS Grimes in the distraction! Waller laughs, Theory drags Grimes up and in, and then Theory slingshots. Somersault SHOTGUN! Grimes staggers into the fireman’s carry, A-TOWN DOWN! Cover, Theory wins!

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

Waller’s a baller with that assist to his boy, and The Now comes out on top! Will these two look to take over SmackDown one win at a time? Theory also talks some trash on Dragon, then pie faces him! So Dragon hits back! Fans fire up but the ref keeps Theory back. Dragon is here as a guest, but Waller says Dragon can’t do nothing anyway. Will this duo hope Boy Wonder stays away from this brand?


Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.

Kayla Braxton is with the US Champion and says earlier tonight, Santos said this wasn’t just a dream match, but the fight of their lives. What is Rey’s response? Rey says LWO is familia and will always be that. But he knows how hard Santos has worked to get here. Heck, Rey grew up watching Santos’ father, El Fantasma. So Rey has nothing but love and respect for Santos. But be careful what you wish for. Every time Rey steps in the ring, he expects the best of his opponent and brings the best in return. So Santos, like they say, this IS the fight of their lives! May the best man win. Rey seems to feel the same way as Santos, but will either man still feel good after taking a loss?


The Bloodline is beating up Ashante THEE Adonis?!

B-Fab shouts for Jimmy to stop but Jimmy stops when he says he’s stopping! Refs and producers rush in and Jimmy says okay, his bad, he’s done now. Adonis crawls away, but Solo is there! Jimmy says finish this, Solo! UREANGE through the table!! Hit Row suffers the wrath of The Bloodline, but when and where will it stop?


WWE United States Championship: Rey Mysterio VS Santos Escobar!

SmackDown returns as Zelina is ringside for both men, and Santos makes his entrance. Santos says hola to Dragon before getting in the ring. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who holds gold for the L W O!

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two tie up. They go around, Santos waistlocks but Rey works on an escape. Santos holds tight, they sit down, and Rey moves around. Rey fights up, jumps, but Santos holds on during the flying mare! Santos shifts to go for an abdominal stretch but Rey fights it to have a toehold. Fans rally and duel, Santos chinlocks but Rey pulls on the leg. Santos uses that to body scissor, and he rolls Rey to a cover, ONE! Rey is still stuck in the scissors but he moves around. Rey claws at the hold, Santos shifts and has the back mount to then roll Rey again. Rey slips free and the two stand off.

Fans cheer as Rey and Santos reset. Santos trips Rey, blocks the headscissor, but Rey gets up. Santos wrenches, wristlocks, but Rey flips through! Santos whips, Rey reverses but Santos reverses again. Rey is on the apron but he RAMS into Santos! Rey slingshots but Santos stops the rana to GAMANGIRI! Rey falls, Santos PLANCHAS! Down goes Rey at the ramp and Zelina is worried for both men as SmackDown goes to break.

The LWO regroups.

They’ve all got icepacks in the medical trainer’s room, and Kayla walks in to congratulate Rey on the win. But before the team could celebrate the moment, they got jumped by The Profits. Santos says sorry, excuse him, but the Profits ruined the moment! Rey says they beat the Profits last week, and now Lashley and them act like they run SmackDown! LWO challenges Lashley & The Profits to a match at Fastlane! Let’s see how tough they are when it’s fair and square! What will happen when these factions go to war in Indianapolis?


WWE announces a huge signing!

Former AEW TBS Champion and rising star, JADE CARGILL, is now with WWE! She got 20 MILLION views on a video just for showing up at the Performance Center! Will a storm be coming for the WWE Women’s Division?


John Cena arrives backstage!

He pulls in rather fast and furious, and he storms right into the arena, that tag match contract in his hands! Will Cena find someone Jimmy & Solo haven’t destroyed to sign on the dotted line? Is there even anyone left?


Pretty Deadly has a video message.

“On July 14th, 2023, Elton prince suffered a devastating shoulder injury. Despite all odds, he is on the road to recovery.” It’s another rehab workout montage, but Elton is still in the wheelchair… Elton works on reaching out for hot tags, swinging chairs, ends up rolling downhill during a celebration, and can’t even poke eyes properly. But as he continues to work at it, he has the courage to stand up and tag in Kit! #YESBOY! #EltonStrong.

The Brawling Brutes are watching this.

Ridge Holland and Pete Dunne look at each other, and neither of them can even process this. Dunne feels maybe they should’ve broken Elton’s leg. The idiots. Will Elton & Kit hope they can stay far, far, far away from Northern Grit and the Bruiserweight?


Charlotte Flair VS Bayley w/ Damage CTRL!

The Queen did what she could to help The Empress of Tomorrow hold off the Evil Genius and her cohorts, but all that got them was a win for Iyo Sky and this rivalry rematch with the Role Model! Will Bayley make an example out of her fellow Horsewoman? Or will Charlotte make Bayley bow down?

SmackDown returns and Bayley makes her entrance, Iyo and Dakota right behind her. But then Charlotte has Bayley hold on so she can get a mic. Charlotte has a question for Bayley: What’s happened to you? Bayley is one of the Four Horsewomen, but now she’s just happy carrying Iyo’s bags. Bayley has become a stepping stone while Charlotte is still the measuring stick. And in the end, it doesn’t matter. Bayley is just in Charlotte’s way. She’ll beat Bayley tonight, and then challenge Iyo for the WWE Women’s Championship at Fastlane! Fans fire up for that, and the bell rings. Bayley CLOBBERS Charlotte!

Bayley fires off, all riled up after what Charlotte said. DMG CTRL cheers and high-fives Bayley. Bayley CHOPS Charlotte, bumps her off buckles, then stomps a mudhole in! Bayley ROCKS Charlotte, lets off, and brings Charlotte around to whip. But Charlotte reverses to send Bayley into the corner, and she CHOPS! Fans “WOO~!” and Charlotte CHOPS again! Charlotte whips, Bayley reverses but Charlotte goes up and out to BOOT Bayley down! Iyo swipes at Charlotte, then Bayley BLASTS Charlotte down! Bayley goes out to the apron, to then FLYING ELBOW Charlotte down! DMG CTRL is fired up as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Charlotte is up top, to CROSSBODY Bayley down! Fans fire up with Charlotte as she storms around. Bayley flounders to ropes, stands up, and Charlotte CHOPS her! And CHOPS her! And CHOPS her! And then CHOPS again! Fans fire up as Charlotte says one more, then CHOPS Bayley again! Charlotte swings, Bayley dodges but Charlotte scoops! FALL AWAY SLAM! Charlotte kips up and fans fire up again! Charlotte handsprings to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Bayley is still in this but Charlotte knows she’s tough.

Shoutout to another of the Horsewomen! Bayley then SUNSET BOMBS Charlotte into buckles! Bayley drags Charlotte to a cover, TWO!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by pinfall

DMG CTRL can’t believe it, but their Role Model lost! The Queen is already wearing yellow ‘n’ block to match Fastlane’s logo, will she take that gold off Iyo? Bayley gets a mic to shout, “Cut the music, you idiots!” Bayley won’t let Charlotte just cut the line! Bayley vowed to end Charlotte, and that’s what DMG CTRL is gonna do! The three surround the ring, but here comes ASUKA! The Empress joins the Queen to run off their common enemies! Asuka gets a mic to shout “OI OI OI OI!” What do you idiots think you’re doing?! She won’t let them do whatever they want! Bayley says okay, they want a Triple Threat for the women’s title?! Then they’ve got it!!

Wait, what? Iyo is confused, but Bayley says this is totally what Asuka said. No, Iyo knows what Asuka said and it wasn’t that! But Bayley says this is so they can teach both Asuka and Charlotte a lesson! Bayley sticks her foot in Iyo’s mouth again, will the Evil Genius have to really work hard on a plan to survive Fastlane?


John Cena heads to the ring!

Sacramento fires up as Cena storms out, saying we’re getting serious tonight! Cena slides into the ring, contract still in hand. Cena also gets a mic, and he tells Sacramento, “I hear ya out there!” Sacramento chants for Cena and so he knows they hear him. And he knows that because last week, he said he was back to compete and that he wanted a match. The Bloodline didn’t take too kindly to that, though. They left Cena knocked out, but they also left him with the contract. This is the contract for a match with them at Fastlane. Yeah, a little lukewarm, because there’s a problem: Cena doesn’t have a partner.

Cena says tonight is very important, because now he has a choice to make. He could rip up the contract and act like this didn’t happen. Fans boo that idea. Or he could stand and fight. The fans like that! So what do you think the man who wears the words “Never Give Up” is gonna make? They cheer the second so he says that’s damn right! He will honor this contract! And if he doesn’t find a partner by Fastlane, then he will fight The Bloodline by himself in a 2v1 Handicap! But speaking of, here comes The Bloodline! Jimmy grins as he has the mic again. “Well, look who finally showed up.”

Cena’s out here talking about Fastlane? Did he not just see what The Bloodline’s been doing all night? They were sending messages! If you team with Cena, you get got by The Bloodline! Fans boo, but Jimmy goes to the apron to tell Cena, “You’re not making it to Fastlane!” But then Cena DECKS Jimmy! Solo stares Cena down, fans fire up, and Solo gets in the ring! Cena throws off the shirt because it is go time! Solo swings, misses, and Cena fireman’s carries, but Jimmy SUPERKICKS him! Flashbacks to last week, HIP ATTACK in the corner! Then Solo adds a HIP ATTACK in the corner! Then Jimmy whips Solo in for another HIP ATTACK!

Fans boo as Cena flops out of the ring. The Bloodline clears off the announce desk! They put Cena on it, and Jimmy raises the one. Jimmy goes up the steps but Solo stops him. Solo wants this one! Jimmy grins and nods and lets Solo climb. But L A KNIGHT is here!! Fans are thunderous as the Mega Star storms down, slides in, and he dodges Jimmy to BLAST Solo! And then he BLASTS Jimmy! Knight stomps a mudhole into Jimmy but Solo stops him! So Knight fires off haymakers! Solo TOSSES Knight, but misses the splash! JUMP NECKBREAKER! Jimmy is up, Knight scoops to POWERSLAM!

Fans fire up, and they spell it out, “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!” BIG elbow drop for Jimmy! Cena is back and he TOSSES Solo! Knight TOSSES Jimmy! Mega Star and Greatest of All Time look to each other, and Knight picks up the contract! Fans are electric as Knight signs his name! Cena can’t believe it, either! He has a tag partner for Fastlane? YEAH!! Will Cena and Knight show The Bloodline whose game is it? With EVERYBODY saying… L A KNIGHT, YEAH!!

My Thoughts:

An awesome episode of SmackDown, especially with how fired up the Sacramento crowd was for everything. Great stuff with Bloodline and such, taking logical yet still exciting turns. Karl Anderson going after The Bloodline was good, because as much as Karl didn’t want Styles getting involved, but he also wasn’t going to let The Bloodline get away with this. Though, Karl didn’t really accomplish much as he got cheated in that match. That slap from Mia was great, though. Then Jimmy & Solo going on a rampage backstage was a great way to show how Jimmy is drunk with power all because he thinks Roman will have his back. Roman most certainly won’t now that Jimmy’s actions have brought LA Knight into the story. Great save from Knight, and he will make a great team with Cena.

Great “main event” match from Charlotte VS Bayley, and that black ‘n’ yellow gear is pretty cool stuff from Charlotte. DMG CTRL of course tries to help Bayley but that backfires. And then I actually like that we’re going back to Bayley talking big and putting Iyo on the spot. The Triple Threat title match is going to be great, and is actually some mad genius thinking from Bayley. DMG CTRL can now legally interfere to make sure Iyo wins against Charlotte and Asuka, but I feel like this can also bring in Shotzi or even Bianca to counteract DMG CTRL. Either way, it’ll be some great stuff to really up things in the SmackDown Women’s Division.

Hilarious vignette from Pretty Deadly, and good response from Brawling Brutes. That feud will definitely start up again after Fastlane and give us a SmackDown contender for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships. Really good stuff out of the Grayson Waller Effect with Lashley putting the pressure on the Profits. Almost thought they were gonna jump Theory since Lashley doesn’t like Theory, but I guess that would make this faction Faces since Theory is Heel. It was nice to see Grimes back, though he does lose to Theory. Dragon Lee being here tonight makes me think he is called up to SmackDown after he screws Dominik Mysterio out of the North American title tomorrow night.

And after just an awesome US Championship match, the Profits instead go after the LWO, a logical move given the back and forth between the factions. LWO wants a Six Man Tag, but does that mean it’ll be Santos, Cruz & Wilde? Or is Rey going to take one of the spots? Either way it’ll be a good time but it feels like the All Mighty Profits are going to take that one to build their momentum towards their own title goals. Lashley VS Rey for the US Championship with Santos helping feels like the move. Maybe there’s tension created as Santos costs Rey, or as Rey says Santos can’t be bending rules just to win. It just feels like something’s going to/has to change in the group dynamic.

My Score: 8.9/10
