Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta VS Rhett Titus & Tracy Williams!

After Double Jeopardy just last night on Dynamite, the Blackpool Combat Club now have a tag title match on the horizon with the Lucha Brothers. Will the Swiss Superman & Decoder get past former ROH World Tag Team Champions to prove they’re ready? Or will #DaThreat and Hot Sauce prove that’s not the case?

The Code of Honor is upheld, though reluctantly on the BCC’s side. The teams sort out and Yuta starts against Tracy. They circle, feel things out, and tie up. Tracy headlocks, Yuta wrenches out, and Yuta has a top wristlock. Tracy slips through, hammerlocks, spins and snapmares to headlock, but Yuta slips out to hammerlock.

The champions keep on coming as now, the King of Wrestling Television puts his gold back on the line. Will Joe be ready for when Mark Briscoe comes back around? Or will All Heart change all the plans they had made?

Backstage interview with Mark Sterling and his stable.

Dasha is with Smart Mark and the expanded Varsity Athletes, namely Ari Daivari, Josh Woods, and the Trustbusters, Sonny Kiss, Slim J & Jeeves Kay. They’re up against the Dark Order, and Mark says he asked for this time to address a problem in ROH. He didn’t wanna bring it up publicly but he felt it needed to be said. The problem here in ROH is The Dark Order. Their infighting about who is teaming with who, why the Righteous is bothering them where Stu Grayson has been, it is putting a strain on the athletes of this roster and Mark’s group has had enough. That is why he put together this super team!

There’s Josh “The Goods” Woods, a four-time All-American wrestler. They’ve got three of “the most prolific and rich athletes on planet Earth” in the Trustbusters. Woods has never teamed with them, but Mark promises we will see “absolute cohesion.” Daivari says that for the last month, The Dark Order has picked a fight with The Trustbusters, with The Varsity Athletes, and now each other. “Fellas, if a fight is what you want, then ask and you shall receive.” But will having a common enemy be just what The Dark Order needs to get back on the same page?


The Righteous VS The Infantry!

Speaking of Vincent & Dutch, they’re in action tonight, as well. Will they prove to Stu Grayson that he should join them? Or will Captain Shawn Dean & #Tattoos&BadNews Carlie Bravo just use them to get up in the rankings?

The Code of Honor is upheld, and The Righteous even hug the Infantry. But Dutch’s snake tongue spooks The Infantry. The teams sort out and Dean starts with Vincent. They circle as fans rally up, and the two tie up. Vincent wrenches, wristlocks, but Dean rolls and kips up to wrench back. Dean then headlocks but Vincent powers out. Dean runs Vincent over and salutes. Things speed up, Vincent hurdles but Dean arm-drags! And arm-drags again! Then DROPKICKS! Fans fire up with The Captain and Dean whips Vincent to ropes. Vincent ELBOWS in return! Cover, TWO! Vincent drags Dean up and underhooks, but Dean wrenches out.

Dean UPPERCUTS Vincent down, then tags Carlie. Dean PENALTY KICKS, Carlie runs, stops and SENTONS! Dean adds a BIG elbow drop! Carlie covers, TWO! Carlie drags Vincent up, wrenches, but Stu Grayson appears! He watches from the stage as Carlie wrenches Vincent and tags Dean. The Infantry double whip, double shoulder, and then split the wishbone on Vincent! Dean ROCKS Vincent, whips him to ropes, but Vincent reverses. Dean holds ropes to BOOT back! Vincent has the ref check him, but it’s a distraction so Dutch can CLOBBER Dean! Carlie protests but the damage is done!

Dutch hopes Stu saw that, he’s all excited. Stu is stoic but Vincent tags Dutch in. Dutch throws hands on Dean, and body shots, then reels him into an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Dean is still in this but Dutch’s snack tongue creeps Carlie out again. Vincent notices Stu now, and fans chant “STU! STU! STU!” Dutch tags Vincent, feeds Dean to a KNEE, then CLOBBERS him! Vincent says here comes the sandman, BASEMENT COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Vincent drags Dean back up, cravats, but Dean shoves him into Dutch! Tag to Carlie! Carlie rallies on Vincent, Dutch runs in but Carlie dumps him out!

Vincent storms up but Carlie scoops. Vincent slips out, Carlie jukes him out to DECK him! Cover, TWO!! Vincent survives but Stu isn’t impressed. Carlie calls to Dean, runs and tags, then SCISSOR KICKS! Carlie suplexes, Vincent slips out, and Dutch returns for the SCRAPBUSTER! Dean CLUBS Dutch, fires hands, but Vincent nis on him! Dean UPPERCUTS Vincent, but Dutch UPPERCUTS Dean! AUTUMN SUNSHINE!! Cover, The Righteous win!

Winners: The Righteous, by pinfall

Dutch grins and Vincent looks to Stu. Stu has his arms crossed, but The Righteous approach. Vincent asks if Stu sees it now. Dutch says Stu is one of them. Stu seems even more confused than before. What will Stu decide when push comes to shove?


A Fight WITHOUT Honor is coming.

The Kingdom claims ROH as their own, and will not let anyone “use” it to get ahead. Respect and honor mean something to The Kingdom, but they demand respect. Action Andretti & Darius Martin see The Kingdom knows nothing about real respect, with their tactics of post match beatdowns, manager interferences and disqualifications. “Where’s the honor in that?” So forget wrestling, this is about hurting The Kingdom! This is bout making the Kingdom bleed, about making the Kingdom pay, and about making The Kingdom respect them! So that means a FIGHT WITHOUT HONOR!

Maria is pretty sure Darius & Action have no idea what those three words mean. But she knows Mike Bennett & Matt Taven do. Taven says those “Melvins” are too stupid to know that if you threaten anyone, you do NOT choose the #OGK. Darius says throw out the Code, throw out the rules, and watch The Kingdom fall apart. Mike says in the ROH locker room, in THE KINGDOM’S locker room, “respect isn’t owned, it’s rented. And rent’s due, b*tch.” This all goes down next week, who wins and who survives this Fight Without Honor tag match?


Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade VS Vertvixen!

While the Fallen Goddess defends her gold in the main event, the chase is always on. Will this Renegade turn things around and head for the top? Or will Vert throw a glitch into the system?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Robyn headlocks. Vert throws body shots, powers out, and then dodges Robyn to run her over! Fans fire up as Vert whips, but Robyn reverses. Vert goes up and over and rolls, then sweeps the legs! Vert keeps moving, BASEMENT SHOT! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Vert brings Robyn up. Vert suplexes but Robyn slips out to waistlock and RAM into a corner. Charlette cheers but Robyn runs into a BOOT! Robyn distracts the ref, and Charlette swipes at Vert! Vert gets her to back off, but Robyn runs in to SHOTGUN Vert down!

Charlette mocks Vert’s pain as Robyn stomps away! The ref counts, Robyn lets off, and Robyn brings Vert up. Robyn CHOPS, then snapmares, and she looms over Vert to reel her into the CAMEL CLUTCH! But she fishhooks Vert so the ref reprimands. Robyn SLAMS Vert down, drags her back up, but Vert JAWBREAKERS! Vert BOOTS, goes to the apron, then ROCKS Robyn! Slingshot somersault and STUNNER! Robyn staggers to a corner, Vert powers up and hits the LEVEL UP BOOT in the corner! Vert keeps the combo going, FLATLINER! Cover, TWO!! Robyn survives but Vert keeps on her. Vert says she’s gonna finish this!

Vert fireman’s carries but Robyn fights free with elbows! Robyn ties Vert up into a COBRA TWIST, then GROUND OCTOPUS!! Vert kicks and flails, she TAPS! Robyn wins!

Winner: Robyn Renegade, by submission

Vert thought it was game over for Robyn but it was turned around on her. The Renegade sisters shake Vert’s hand in a mocking fashion, but that technically upholds the Code of Honor. Will the sisters look to take over ROH both in the singles and tag divisions?


Backstage interview with The Mogul Embassy.

Dasha is with Prince Nana, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona, and she brings up The Gates of Agony are going to take on Dalton Castle’s Boys. Are they ready? Nana laughs. The GOA? Ready for The Boys? Is there even any athletic ability in The Boys? Hello, ROH bookers, do they know? But storming in is Dalton Castle himself! He shouts about how Brent Tate is covered head to toe in bruises and in the hospital! He doesn’t know who did it, but someone in the Embassy did it! Nana says that’s lies, no one did anything to his Boy! So, are they fine? Dalton says right, okay, yeah, they’re “fine.” For now! But just know that you “silly gooses” made a big mistake!

Castle leaves and Nana says yes, they are silly gooses. HE HAS BRENT’S MASK! The Embassy got away with taking out the competition, but will The Peacock and the Tate Twins get their revenge?


Ninja Mack VS Willie Mack!

Like the McDonald’s menu, it’s a Double Mack attack! Both Macks move fast and kick ass, but who will be The Mack of Honor in this first-time-ever?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and fans cheer for “MACK! MACK! MACK!” The two circle, fans chant “Let’s Go, Mack!” Will and Ninja tie up, Will puts Ninja in the corner but then lets off. Ninja rushes up and ties up with Will again, but Will doesn’t budge. Will powers Ninja back to the corner, then rolls back into the crane stance! Will bows and circles with Ninja. They tie up and Ninja gets around to waistlock. Ninja rolls Will, they stand and Will switches to a BIG slam! Ninja gets up but into another BIG slam! Ninja moves around, fans want that “One More Time!” so Will obliges with a third BIG slam!

Ninja scrambles to the ropes, Will lets off and fans rally up for “MACK! MACK! MACK!” again. Ninja runs in but Will runs him over! Will runs, Ninja drops and hurdles but Will turns arm-drag into arm-drag! Fans fire up, Ninja runs in but Will dodges. Ninja handstands, handsprings, headscissors, but Willie cartwheels through!

Ninja returns, Will dodges and GAMANGIRIS! Ninja bails out and Will builds speed! Willie FLIES!

Fans fire up as Will takes Ninja out at the ramp! Fans cheer “ROH! ROH!” for giving us this Mack-tacular match! Will brings Ninja up but Ninja throws body shots. Ninja roars and PALM STRIKES!

Another cover, TWO! Ninja covers a third time, TWO! Will is proving tougher than Ninja expected, but Ninja drags Will up.

Six Man Tag: The Mogul Embassy VS Adam Priest, Lucky Ali & Victor Benjamin!

No battle with The Boys, but the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions still found competition to replace them. Will The Machine & The Gates of Agony crush these substitutes? Or will they find it was better to battle The Boys they know rather than the guys they don’t?

The Code of Honor is upheld, then the trios sort out. Bishop Kaun starts against Adam Priest, the fans rally up as the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Kaun KNEES low!

Priest slips free, but Cage ELBOWS back!

Cage whips Priest to ropes to then back drop him away! Lucky tags in but now he isn’t feeling so lucky. He runs in, into a FLAPJACK! And SUPERKICK! Cage runs corner to corner to UPPERCUT, GAMANGIRI, and GERMAN SUPLEX! Lucky goes halfway across the ring, and Cage flexes. Liona wants in so Cage tags him. Lucky hurries to tag in Victor. Victor runs in, but Liona POUNCES him away! Fans fire up, and Liona drags Victor back up to CHOKE him on the ropes! The ref counts, Liona lets off at 4, and Liona roars at the ref.

Winners: The Mogul Embassy, by pinfall

Cage, Kaun & Liona victimized Victor and his team, and continue to roll on, undefeated since becoming champions. Will any trio ever stop these three from running ROH?

ROH Women’s World Championships: Athena VS Skye Blue!

The Fallen Goddess called out #ChicagoSkye all because she doesn’t think the young star should even be in an ROH ring. Athena says Skye’s only here because of her body, but Skye says she’s busted her ass every week. Words only go so far, who will win the argument with their fists?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who rises and who falls in this main event!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans rally as the two circle. Fans duel, and the two approach. Athena DECKS Skey, then celebrates and laughs. Fans cheer and jeer, but Skye blocks the whip to get around to FACE SMASH, mule kick, but Athena ducks the roundhouse! Athena waistlocks, Skye bucks the O’Conner and drops on the cover, ONE!! Athena runs in, Skye dodges and comes back to RANA, but Athena handsprings through. Athena laughs more, then dodges Skye to headscissor! Skye handsprings through now, and comes back, but into a BOOT! Athena scowls as she looms over Skye.

Skye crawls to ropes but Athena CHOKES her! The ref counts, Athena shouts at him to stop telling her what to do! Athena stomps Skye in a corner, digs her boots in, and then taunts Skye. The ref counts, but then has to pull Athena  away. Athena tells him to watch himself, then she goes back to Skye. Athena drags Skye, fans start cheering for the ref, but Athena CLUBS Skye down. Athena glares at the ref, Skye rolls her up! TWO!! Skye goes to a corner, comes back, but Athena DROPKICKS her! Athena KNEES Skye in the corner, then TOSSES her out hard! Skye sputters, the ref checks on her, but Athena brings the steps over!

Athena tips the steps into their side, positions them at an angle, then goes to Skye. Skye throws hands! Athena knees low, whips Skye, but Skye reverses to send Athena into them! Fans fire up with Skye as Athena writhes! Skye slides into the ring to stop the count, then goes out to the apron. Athena ducks the penalty kick, blocks the mule kick, and she YANKS Skye to the floor! Skye sputters again but Athena scowls. Athena says it’s time to teach her a lesson! Athena DECKS Skye, then brings her up to fireman’s carry! Athena goes up the ramp to the stage, and then swings, only for Skye to arm-drag her away!

Fans fire up as Skye stands up, runs in, and she ROCKS Athena again and again! Athena stands, Skye tilt-o-whirl headscissors, but Athena stops from falling off the stage! Athena dodges Skye’s superkick, to SUPERKICK Skye off the stage! Skye flounders around, but Athena drags her back to ringside. Athena drops knees on Skye’s stomach! Athena then hauls Skye up, puts her in the ring, and she stalks her. Athena stomps Skye on the back! Athena ties up Skye’s legs and KNEES her in the side, to then bring her into a BOW ‘N’ ARROW! Skye endures the stretch, even as Athena thrashes her around! Skye pops out, covers, ONE!!

Skye gets around, roll-up, TWO! Athena swings, into another roll-up, TWO! Skye rushes in, cradles, TWO and Athena tips it! TWO, Skye has it, TWO! They roll around and around and around, and it ends with Skye on top! TWO!!! Athena escapes in time! Skye runs in to SHINING WIZARD at the ropes, then keeps moving, SHOTGUN BOOT! Skye shouts and fans fire up with her! Skye runs corner to corner, but Athena puts her on the apron! Skye ROUNDHOUSES, climbs up and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!

They brawl up top, Skye gets the edge and fans fire up with her! Skye then jumps to SUPER STEINER!! Athena flounders up and Skye SUPERKICKS!! Skye hurries to bring Athena up, STANDING SLICED BREAD!!

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

Skye pushed Athena as far as any woman in ROH has! But in the end, Blue has no gold, but she has Athena’s respect? Athena does offer the handshake, how genuine is it? Skye takes the handshake and the Code of Honor is upheld. Athena raises Skye’s hand in victory, only to CLOBBER her!! And then Athena SMASHES Skye off the belt!! Athena cannot be trusted, but can she be stopped?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of ROH here, but also one that was basically a full two hours, up from their recent runtimes of about 90 minutes. And since there’s no commercials, it really is two hours. And there were quite a few matches that weren’t originally advertised on the official website or official Twitter. For example, the opening match of Mark Briscoe VS Shane Taylor. Great stuff, and I kinda wish we’d gotten this match sooner, but also in the timeline where Mark was ROH World TV Champion already. And I feel like this is meant to tie in with what we saw in the other unadvertised match. Fox VS Henry was great stuff, but it seems it was all so FTR could show up and make the save.

Now, what’s interesting is, we saw Mark & Lucha Bros VS Shane & Workhorsemen before. Is this going to lead to Mark & FTR VS Shane & Workhorsemen this time around? Again, seems rather strange when Mark doesn’t have a title, this feels exactly like a build to Mark VS Shane for the TV title except oops, he doesn’t have the TV title. Samoa Joe has the TV title after winning against Blake Christian in a great match. I suppose Mark can beat Joe, and then Mark can defend it against Shane, but this all feels out of order. Though, that’s not unheard of under Tony Khan, just look at how odd Ricky Starks’ feuds with Chris Jericho and Jay White have been organized.

Another match that caught me by surprise was Claudio & Yuta VS Rhett & Tracy. Really good stuff, and it definitely acts as a tag team tune-up for the Blackpool Combat Club before they face the Lucha Brothers. I almost thought Yuta was gonna mess things up and that’d make Claudio mad and want Bryan as his partner instead. But it makes sense Yuta is Claudio’s partner going into the tag title match, because that is where Yuta can mess up and the Lucha Brothers win to retain their titles. Bryan is bigger than the tag titles, his return to an ROH ring should be for like the Pure title. Imagine Bryan VS Shibata just at all, that’d be amazing.

Good stuff out of the Dark Order and Righteous story. The Righteous get a good win off The Infantry with Stu watching, and then telling him he’s one of them clearly gets in the heads of The Dark Order. The Dark Order still wins in a good match against Sterling’s stable, but there’s a lot of passive aggressiveness from Reynolds towards Stu. I would think now we get The Righteous VS Uno & Stu, Stu betrays The Dark Order because they basically betrayed him, and then we get a Trios of Stu & The Righteous VS The Dark Order. A shame that, for as much as Jon Huber/Brodie Lee meant to AEW, they’ve let The Dark Order fall apart after his death, but at least there would be some strong story to this. Angels just left AEW and Anna Jay just defected to JAS without any real beef.

Good match from Robyn VS Vert, but Charlette being involved is a logical way for Robyn to win while keeping Vert relatively protected. Sadly, neither ROH or AEW has a Women’s Tag Division, i.e. prizes for teams to win, so it makes sense Robyn would start building up her singles momentum. Great match of Mack VS Mack, and Willie Mack winning makes sense. Ninja Mack is pretty busy in a lot of other promotions so Willie is gonna get up the ranks here in ROH. Would love if Willie Mack also got in on the Pure Division, imagine what he could do in a match with Shibata or Bryan.

Great stuff out of Kyle VS Tony, and I like that while Kyle is basically Heel for attacking Cassidy just last night, Tony played Heel because fans were responding positively to Kyle. Great win for Kyle, he and Cassidy are going to have a great match, and who knows if Kyle wins the belt. Good story in the Embassy’s segments. They beat up Brent Tate off camera so that they don’t have to worry about Castle & The Boys in the Six Man Division. And of course they win their match here tonight. I suppose they want us to see Castle & The Boys as the ones to dethrone The Embassy, but I’d rather another trio, like Dark Order or even Stu & Righteous, win those belts.

Great promo from The Kingdom and #TopFlightAction to set up their Fight Without Honor. That is going to be wild stuff, this is definitely the blowoff, and I feel like the winner should go right after the ROH Tag titles. And great stuff out of the women’s title in the main event. Skye didn’t feel like the logical choice for contender, but she did live up to the expectations here. Now, Athena winning was still the expected outcome, and I can’t be sure who dethrones her. At least, here in ROH as it stands. Mostly because they already used Willow Nightingale. As I said last week, if Willow had just been building up without ever approaching Athena, then they could’ve had an awesome match and Willow could’ve had an amazing moment when she dethrones Athena.

My Score: 8.7/10

Billy brings Kassidy up, bumps him off buckles, and he hears the fans singing. Billy ROCKS Kassidy with a right, apologizes to the ref, then tags to Bowens. Bowens drags Kassidy up to ROCK him with haymaker after haymaker! Bowens then brings Kassidy up to tag in Caster. They double suplex Kassidy, Caster covers, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Caster keeps Kassidy down with a chinlock while fans rally up. Kassidy fights to his feet, throws body shots, and he fires forearms as Rampage returns to single picture. 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! Billy runs corner to corner but Kassidy dodges! The splash hits buckles and Billy falls back! Fans rally up as both men crawl, but Billy gets Kassidy’s leg! Kassidy stands up to ENZIGURI! Hot tag to Jeff! Jeff rallies on Billy, on Bowens, and on Caster! Fans fire up and Jeff clotheslines Billy up and out! Jeff CLOBBS Bowens, then catches him for a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Leg hook cradle!

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.

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!!

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.

SmackDown returns again and Santos has Rey in a modified stretch. Rey endures, Santos shifts his grip, but Rey fights free. Santos has a hammerlock to keep Rey close, and Santos wrangles Rey down. Rey fights up, fans rally, and Rey jumps to hit that flying-mare! Fans fire up as Santos speeds things up and runs Rey over! Things keep moving, Rey dodges but Santos DROPKICKS him down! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Rey hangs tough, and Zelina is again torn. She rallies the fans more for the LWO than for either man. Santos waistlocks, Rey switches, but Santos switches back. They go to ropes and Rey bucks the O’Conner.

Rey ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA Santos outta the ring! Fans fire up and Rey builds speed, goes up the corner to PLANCHA! Down goes Santos! Fans fire up with Rey and he hears the ring count. Rey drags Santos up, puts him in at 6 of 10, and then climbs the corner. Santos stands, Rey SEATED SENTONS! Rey keeps moving, and he CLOBBERS Santos! Both men are down and fans rally up more. But wait, Jimmy and Solo are still wreaking havoc backstage? SAMOAN SPIKE for security! Jimmy says that guy won’t be Cena’s partner, either! Back to the ring, fans rally for “619! 619!” as Rey goes to ropes.

Santos stands, he rushes in to sunset flip, but Rey rolls through to BUZZSAW! Santos is dazed, Rey calls his shot and he drop toeholds Santos onto ropes! Rey dials it up as fans go wild, but Santos SUPERKICKS Rey outta the ring! Santos takes aim, builds speed, ARROW FROM HELL!! Direct hit at the ramp and down goes Rey! Santos catches his breath while he stands back up, and then he goes up the barriers? To MOONSAULT Rey on the ramp! Zelina is worried again but Santos puts Rey back in the ring. Rey staggers and goes to the far side but Santos takes aim. “This is Awesome!” as Santos spells it out, “L! W! O!”

Santos goes corner to corner, DOUBLE KNEES! Rey wobbles, but Santos puts him back in the corner. Santos goes again, DOUBLE KNEES! Santos hoists Rey up top, climbs up after him, but Rey HEADBUTTS! Rey fires forearms and he knocks Santos down! Santos stands up while Rey steadies himself, but Santos GAMANGIRIS first!

Rey and Santos are both down after those belly flops, and fans rally as both men rise up. Santos runs in, scoops Rey and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans rally as Rey staggers up, but into a tilt-o-whirl torture rack! Santos runs around with Rey, then hits a RACK DROP! Cover, TWO!! Zelina is relieved again but Santos is surprised. Rey tells Santos to bring it on, there needs to be a winner. Santos storms up to CHOP! And whip, but Rey KICKS back! Rey runs to RAN- NO, Santos blocks that! Santos swings Rey up but Rey sunset flips! TWO!! Santos escapes and even Zelina is stunned! Fans fire up again, “This is Awesome!”

Rey runs in, Santos puts him on the apron but Rey ROCKS Santos first! Then Rey goes up a corner, brings Santos up to join him, and then adjusts position to fire off hands! Fans fire up as Rey calls the shot, but Santos drags Rey into a fireman’s carry! Rey fights with elbows, then pops up to SUPER RANA!! Fans are thunderous while Santos sits up in a daze!

And the greatest luchador of all time comes out the champion! Santos is stunned, but Rey offers him a handshake of respect. They are still familiar, aren’t they? WAIT! The Profits attack!! Dawkins & Ford mug Rey & Santos, this must be how they’re proving Lashley wrong! They hit Escobar with a BIG LARIAT! Fans boo but here comes Lashley! The All Mighty says that’s it! That’s what he wanted! But then here comes the rest of the LWO! Lashley CLOBBERS Wilde while Ford & Dawkins mug Cruz! But Dragon Lee wants to get in! Security keeps him back, he’s just here as a guest! So Wilde is fed to the REVELATION!

The fans boo but The All Mighty has his Profits! Will they soon run SmackDown with iron fists?


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
