PLAY BY PLAY

Cody Rhodes is here!

The fans fire up as one of their own, The American Nightmare, heads to the ring. They sing along with his song, “WHOA~ OH!” Cody gives away the weight belt and “WHOA~ OH!” fires off the pyro. Fans chant for “CODY! CODY!” as he gets the mic, and he takes a moment to enjoy the homecoming reception. They chant “WELCOME HOME! WELCOME HOME!” and Cody smiles. Cody then says, “So… Atlanta… My home… What do you guys wanna talk about?” Cody says they don’t really have to talk, “because there’s this large shadow that looms over this sold out State Farm Arena tonight.

“It’s the same shadow that looms over every arena we go to. We’re talking, of course, about… Brock Lesnar.” Cody says one thing is for sure when Lesnar is called to the ring, when his card has been pulled in the past, he indeed shows up. So there’s no need for talk, Lesnar just needs to come to the ring, accept the challenge for SummerSlam! You heard ’em, Brock! So get out here, right now! Cody waits, but nothing happens. Fans boo, and Cody grows impatient. Lesnar is here tonight, but this is the MO, right? Brock is gonna be fashionably late, right? Well if maybe he shows up at 9 o’clock Eastern, Cody will be here.

Oh wait, Lesnar might wait until the end! Well guess what? Cody will still be in the ring waiting. Oh, wait, wait! Lesnar might wait until the very end of the night, but mark Cody’s words, he’ll still be in this ring waiting for him! Fans fire up and chant for “CODY! CODY!” as he waits. But Cody says he’d be remised if he didn’t bring up that WWE is the house that built him. But what we may not know, the woman that built Cody is here in the front row. That’s Cody’s mom, Michelle. And the thing about her is, there’s a reason the Nightmare Family’s catchphrase isn’t “Let’s get funky like a monkey.”

Cody wishes he could do it like Dusty, but the other side of his family, the one that trained him, taught him to get up outta the mud, and taught him to fight is a fighter herself! But one thing about Lesnar is that their relationship has been complexed. There are only two words that describe it and they’re not really Cody’s hit single or representative of him. But the only words he can think of are… hard times. But that’s okay. Tonight, as Cody has said, when Lesnar shows up here, it won’t be hard times for Cody. Not in Cody’s home state, hometown or in front of his people! It will be hard times for LESNAR! God Bless, enjoy Raw, he loves y’all very much!

Cody drops the mic and goes out to hug his family in the front row. And NOW Lesnar shows up! Cody is ready! He goes to the ramp, but then the music stops. Fans boo and Cody is confused. Is Lesnar trying to troll Cody? Is Lesnar taunting Cody? Cody goes up the ramp, but then the music starts again! Cody isn’t waiting, he storms right up to the entryway! Cody is on the hunt, but then there’s chairs and other stuff thrown around! Lesnar TOSSES Cody back, out and then SMACKS him with the chair! And again! Lesnar tricked Cody into a trap and is now beating him down! Lesnar RAMS Cody into the apron!

Lesnar pushes Cody around the way, fans rally for Cody but Lesnar just POSTS him instead! Lesnar fireman’s carries, and he stares Michelle right down as he F5s Cody to the floor!! Fans boo and chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Lesnar just smiles. Lesnar looms over Cody, drags him back up, and puts on the KIMURA!! Lesnar broke that arm once, does he want to do it again!? Lesnar lets off before anything snaps, and then he stares the family down again. Lesnar drags Cody up, puts him in the ring, and he storms around Cody while fans boo. Cody stands, but into another KIMURA!!

Lesnar pulls on the arm and Cody endures, but again Lesnar lets off before the arm breaks. Fans boo as hard as they can, but Lesnar says, “Challenge accepted! I’ll see you at SummerSlam, b*tch.” Fans boo more, but will Cody be able to exact his revenge once and for all in Detroit?

 

GUNTHER VS Matt Riddle!

Der Ring General may have beaten The Original Bro before, but he had Imperium backing him then! With Ludwig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci banned from ringside, can Riddle win a fair fight? Or will Gunther still keep the mat sacred?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Gunther gets around but Riddle fights the sleeper. Riddle switches, Gunther wrenches and they clinch in a corner. The ref counts, Gunther lets off to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Riddle sputters, but Gunther CHOPS again! Gunther pie faces Riddle but Riddle fires forearms! And CHOPS! And leaps on for a GUILLOTINE! But Gunther brings Riddle up, only for Riddle to shift to a SLEEPER! Gunther SLAMS Riddle, down, then YANKS him up in a SLEEPER! But Riddle slips free to get an ARMBAR! Gunther stacks Riddle, TWO! Riddle kicks but Gunther ducks!

Imperium watches from gorilla as Gunther back suplexes, only for Riddle to land on his feet! Riddle jumps on, FLYING TRIANGLE HOLD! Gunther drops to his knees but he stays up! Gunther deadlifts Riddle, but Riddle throws down elbows! And then RANAS Gunther up and out of the ring! And PENALTY KICKS from the apron! Fans fire up and Riddle watches Gunther go around the way. Riddle leaps off the steps, but Gunther CHOPS him outta the sky! And then scoop SLAMS him on the floor! Gunther scowls and fans boo but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and fans rally as both men are down after Riddle hit a Superplex. Riddle and Gunther rise, and Riddle fires palm strikes! Gunther CHOPS! Riddle CHOPS! And CHOPS! Gunther CHOPS again! Riddle CHOSP again! And throws a forearm! Gunther shoves, Riddle BOOTS, Gunther spins around to CHOP! But Riddle spins Gunther to PELE! Gunther goes to a corner, Riddle kips up! Fans fire up and Riddle runs in to forearm smash! And then side to side for another forearm smash! Gunther fights the exploder to UPPERCUT! Riddle fires a forearm, Gunther UPPERCUTS! They go back and forth, Riddle BOOTS, and BROSPLODERS!

Fans fire up as Riddle runs to KICK Gunther in the back! Gunther snarls so Riddle runs, but Gunther blocks the Penalty Kick! Riddle fires a forearm, but Gunther CHOPS! Riddle KICKS! Gunther CHOPS! Riddle KICKS! And KICKS! And kicks, but Gunther blocks to CLUB the leg, CHOP the chest, and GERMAN SPUPLEX! Riddle stands, into a LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Riddle survives and Imperium can’t believe it! Gunther stands up, fans rally for Riddle again, and Gunther swings, into a ripcord! FINAL FLASH! Another! Riddle runs to BLINDSIDE KNEE! Cover, TWO!! Gunther survives and Atlanta can’t believe it!

Riddle goes up and fans fire up, for the FLOATING BRO onto knees!! Gunther saves himself, then runs in to SHOTGUN! Gunther reels Riddle in, to GENERAL BOMB!! Cover, Gunther wins!

Winner: Gunther, by pinfall

The Bro got that fair fight, but it still wasn’t enough for him to win! Gunther stands on the commentary table to shout at fans, then he gets a mic. Fans boo and Gunther eggs them on. “You can boo me as much as you want! It will not change the fact that tonight is the greatest night of your sad lives, because you came HERE! Because you came here tonight, to see the greatest Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion of all time! Matt Riddle is done. I am building a legacy! DREW MCINTYRE! If you want to ride on my coattail, be my guest. But just like everybody else, you will fall victim to Der Ring General!” The challenge has been issued, how will the Scottish Warrior respond?

 

Backstage interview with Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez.

Jackie Redmond is with the WWE Women’s Tag Team champions and says later tonight is a huge match against Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville. What do they feel is the deciding factor in successfully defending the titles tonight? Liv doesn’t think it is as simple one factor. As much as Sonya & Chelsea love to complain about the rules, they don’t really play by them, which is super ironic. But you can’t become the champs without being ready for anything. And Raquel says that they know better than anyone that the tougher the battle, the sweeter the victory.

Liv says exactly! That is why they won’t back down from anyone! Not from Sonya & Chelsea, not Trish & Zoey, not Kayden & Katana. But what about Rhea Ripley? Rhea tells Jackie to leave and she does. Raquel says not even Rhea. Liv says they don’t know how many times they have to say it, but they’re just not- RHEA HEADBUTTS LIV! And then the brawl is on with Raquel! Big Mami Cool sends Rhea into trunks, and then producers rush in! Rhea kicks Raquel’s leg out! The producers tell Rhea to back off! Liv and Raquel regroup but that kick to the leg was rough. Will the Women’s Tag Team Champions even make it to their match?

 

The Judgment Day heads to the ring!

Mami regroups with her boys after taking out the Women’s Tag Champions, and Dom checks her teeth for her. She’s okay, and they all go down the ramp. What will they have to say? We’ll hear, after the break.

Raw returns and Rhea gets the mic to say “The Judgment Day, we’re stronger than ever. I mean, did anyone really think that we were just gonna break up? I mean, anyone with half a brain cell could tell that we’re just better than everyone, huh? We’re just built differently. We’re not fragile, we’re not gonna shatter because someone’s ego got bruised. And now that no one can stop us, we not only run Monday Night Raw, but we absolutely dominate it. I mean, Raquel Rodriguez sorta just found that out, didn’t she? Because I am the most dominant woman here in this entire industry! I am unbeatable as the Women’s World Champion!

“And Finn and Damian, they will become world champions. But tomorrow night, my Latino Heat…” Fans boo as Rhea says Dom will become NXT North American Champion. Dom says tomorrow night, and then he gets drowned out by boos! Tomorrow on NXT, Dom vows to beat Wes Lee! Damian says okay, we get it. “But get this: all those boos won’t change the fact that tomorrow night, Dominik becomes the NXT North American Champion! Hell, all those boos won’t change the fact that I am guaranteed to be world champion.” Damian tells Finn to take it easy, because Finn still gets first crack at Seth Rollins.

Finn says thanks Damian, he loves ya. And speaking of Seth, whatever you have to say later tonight, Finn will be listening. But just remember that the issues that they have will never be over until Finn’s arm is raised as the NEW World Heavyweight Champion!! Dom says that’s because the Judgment Day- The boos get louder and he tells them all to shut up! But here come Kevin & Sami! Sami has a mic and he wants everyone to hold on. Fans chant for Sami, he thanks them, an d says this is what he was gonna say. HE feels he has a good relationship with the WWE Universe. And generally speaking, he knows what they like and dislike.

But to make sure we’re all on the same page, he wants to ask the fine people of Atlanta, “Did you pay your hard earned money to come here tonight and listen to Dominik Mysterio talk?” Fans boo and say no, so there it is! Sami then asks if they came here to see someone shut Dominik’s mouth for him! The fans cheer because yes! And that means they’re in luck. Or rather, Sami & Kevin are in luck, because they get to do it! Tonight, Dom & Damian take on the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions!! Damian says okay. The Judgment Day have focused on individual titles, but he sees some titles that would look great in their collection.

If Kevin & Sami are so confident they’re gonna win, why not put the titles on the line tonight? Fans do like the sound of that. Sami says that’s not a bad idea, but he feels like he should let Kevin weigh in on this. Kevin’s been listening for over five minutes and looks agitated. “Kev, take it away.” Fans cheer as Sami hands over the mic. Fans chant for “K O! K O!” and Kevin says he can say whatever he wants? Yes. If they want the tag titles on the line, fine! He doesn’t care, he just wants to Stunner Priest and punch Dom’s stupid face! Title match, YOU’RE ON!! LET’S GO!! The Prizefighter & Great Liberator are ready, but will they make it out of Atlanta with gold?

 

The trainer checks Raquel’s leg.

Adam Pearce asks if she’s okay, and the trainer says technically, yes. She can be cleared, but he’d feel better if she could stand on her own. Raquel says they can’t cancel tonight’s match! They let the belts go because of injury before, Raquel had to find a new partner, they can’t do that again. Raquel insists on competing. Pearce makes sure all are in agreement. Yes, both Liv & Raquel want to, and the trainer says Raquel is cleared. Then the match is on! Liv & Raquel head out, but will they still be #LivingLarge? We find out, after the break.

 

Undisputed WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez VS Sonya Deville & Chelsea Green!

Morgan & Raquel have reunited but already they might be in trouble after pushing Rhea Ripley. Will they be able to survive the Pride Fighter & Hot Mess? Or will the Complaint Department actually have something to be happy about for once?

Raw returns and the teams sort out. Liv and Sonya start, and the two rush in at the bell! Sonya BOOTS Liv, talks trash, and bumps her off buckles. Tag to Chelsea and they stomp away on Liv. Chelsea & Sonya double suplex, hold Liv up, and then SLAM her down! Chelsea drops an elbow, covers, TWO! Chelsea bumps Liv off buckles, tags Sonya, and Sonya taunts the fans. Sonya fires off fast hands on Liv high and low, but lets off as the ref counts. Sonya soaks up the heat, runs in, but Liv FROCKS her! And hits Chelsea! Fans fire up as Liv fights back! Liv BOOTS Sonya runs in, but Sonya picks her up! Liv hops off to ENZIGURI!

Fans fire upas Liv hurries, hot tag to Raquel! Raquel still rallies, even with one good leg! Raquel scoops and SNAKE EYES! Sonya ducks one lariat but not the SOUTHPAW! Raquel scoops Sonya to FALL AWAY SLAM! Chelsea gets up but Raquel BOOTS her off the apron! Raquel runs in but Sonya POSTS her! Sonya then CHOP BLOCKS the leg, and has that bad leg for a HALF CRAB! Fans boo and Raquel endures as Sonya sits deep! Raquel powers up and fans rally, but Sonya drags her away from ropes! Sonya pulls on the leg, but Raquel powers up again! Raquel uses the good leg to fight forward, but Sonya drags her back again!

Sonya sits deep on the hold again! Liv returns to CLOBBER Sonya! Fans rally and Raquel crawls, hot tags to Chelsea and Liv! Liv rallies on Chelsea with big shoulders! Chelsea goes to a corner, Liv back body blocks! And then SHINING WIZARDS! Snapmare and Liv goes up, to FLYING CODE BREAKER! Liv then hits ObLIVion!! Cover, SONYA KNEES LIV DOWN!! Sonya goes back to her corner and calls to Chelsea. Chelsea crawls but Sonya sees Raquel on the apron! Sonya rushes over to YANK Raquel down and CHOP BLOCK the leg again! Chelsea gets Liv but Liv shoves free! O’Conner Roll, TWO!

Sonya SUCKER PUNCHES Liv! Chelsea hits UNPRETTY-HER!! Cover, TWO!?!? Liv survives and shocks the Complaint Department! Sonya tags back in, Chelsea sets Liv up again but Liv wrenches to a JAWBKREAKER! Liv avoids the knee, rolls Sonya up, TWO!! Chelsea chicken wings, ANOTHER UNPRETTY-HER! SLIDING KNEE!! Cover, Sonya & Chelsea win!

Winners: Sonya Deville & Chelsea Green, by pinfall (NEW Undisputed WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions)

Now the fans are in shock! Sonya & Chelsea no longer have anything to complain about, they just took the titles! Will they now rub it into everyone’s faces from Raw to SmackDown to even NXT?

 

Sonya & Chelsea celebrate backstage.

Byron Saxton congratulates them on the win, but points out they essentially had a 2v1 advantage. Sonya has him stop there. No one wants to hear about that “fake” injury! They are champions! They were the moment they first stepped into the ring together. Chelsea has so many people to thank! First, her fans, of course. So many people believed in her! Her mom, her dad, her sister, her cat! Sonya says this is a great moment. Chelsea also thanks the team at her favorite tanning salon. Okay, they will get going, but they are going to run this division, and everyone’s gonna know it. Sonya has Chelsea cut the rest of her list, but who will be on their list of challengers?

 

Byron Saxton has a sit-down interview with Seth Rollins.

Byron says he appreciates Rollins taking this time. Rollins fist bumps and says anything for #SaxMan. Byron brings up that we know what Finn Balor wants. But what are Rollins’ plans when it comes to defending the world title? Rollins has BIG plans! SummerSlam is right around the corner, the biggest party of the summer, and the WHC deserves a marquee match. Now, Rollins has been thinking on possible challenges, and it is a very short list. But he has to be honest, Finn has earned a place on the list. So have guys like Damian Priest, Drew McIntyre, Gunther, Kevin- Oh, Finn walks in.

Finn takes over the interview and Rollins apologizes to Byron. Finn sits down to look Rollins in the eye, and says we all know why he’s here. Finn wants his rematch. And he doesn’t care how many other “contenders” are on the list, the line starts with Finn. Rollins knows and Finn knows that the issues between them are far from over. So do what you gotta do, talk to Pearce, and make the match. Rollins sighs, and tells Finn that he understands where Finn is coming from. But Finn has to stop living int he past. No, no, no. Finn isn’t living in the past. He is living in chaos. And that chaos is where he will take the title.

Finn will do what Rollins did to him. He will hurt Rollins, he will laugh in Rollins’ face, and he will take his career and alter it forever. Rollins says he’ll say this once. “The World Heavyweight Championship… It’s about more than your personal vendetta. It’s bigger than you. Hell, it’s bigger than me. And if you just wanna settle the score, we don’t need a match for that. We can do that right here, right now. So take your shot. Or get outta my face.” Finn smirks, and says, “Cool.” Finn stands up and walks away. Rollins apologizes to the crew. But then Finn CLOBBERS Rollins! Finn rains down fists and stomps Rollins in the ribs!

Finn asks how that “shot” felt. Finn tells Rollins to make the match, and then he actually leaves. Will the Prince get what he wants? Or just what he deserves?

 

Viking Rules Match: The Viking Raiders VS The Alpha Academy!

The ring has transformed into a longship as once again, Erik & Ivar look to take a team into the deep waters! With no disqualifications, no count outs and falls count anywhere, what will happen to Chad Gable & Otis?

Raw returns, and Titus O’Neil is on commentary! Also, the Vikings make their entrance, “Valhalla” Sarah Logan holding onto the letterman’s jacket she stole from Maxxine Dupri. But while the Vikings all pose on the bow, Gable builds speed and Otis LAUNCHES him onto them!! Fans fire up as Maxxine DROPKICKS Sarah, too! The bell rings, and the Academy goes outside to brawl with the Vikings! But then Ivar POSTS Otis, and Erik CLUBS Gable! The Vikings coordinate, and Erik scoops Ivar to SUPER SLAM him onto Otis! And then Erik back suplexes Gable, but Gable slips free! Only for Erik to KNEE him low!

Erik gets Gable up again but Gable trips Erik to an ANKLE LOCK! Erik endures, but he rolls to send Gable off the boat, onto Ivar! Gable makes that a cover, TWO! The brawl is on again and Erik whips, but Gable reverses, and Erik SMACKS into a shield! “A THANK YEW~!” Otis tells Gable… GET THE TABLES!! Gable does just that and the fans fire up! Maxxine and Atlanta cheer but Erik CLOBBERS Gable! Ivar BOOTS Otis! Erik puts Gable in the ring while Ivar SPLASHES Otis against the boat! The Vikings regroup in the ring and surround Gable. Pop-up and waistlock, but Gable breaks free as Otis returns! Otis catches Ivar’s springboard to POWERSLAM!!

Fans and even Titus are thunderous as the Vikings flop outta the ring, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and all four men are down after another impact! Gable covers Ivar, but Erik drags Gable off and into a full nelson! KNEE to the back of the head!! Cover, but Otis breaks it! Fans fire up and Titus is loving this as Ivar BOOTS Otis down! Ivar goes to a corner, Maxxine shouts to Otise, but Ivar VIKING MOONSAULTS!! Cover, but Gable’s up top now! And he MOONSAULTS Ivar! And then he waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX!! Bridging cover, but Erik breaks it! All four men are down again and fans fire back up! Ivar flops out to the bow of the ship, Sarah coaches Erik and he rises.

Fans are thunderous as Gable and Erik stand. Erik fires a forearm, but Gable gives it back! They go back and forth, shot for shot, then Gable blocks, only for Erik to Ace Ten- NO, throat chop, knee, UPPERCUT, and then Gable dodges the haymaker to mule kick! “SHOOOOSH~!” But Erik DECKS Gable! Gable gest up, to clinch and EXPLODER! Both men are down again and Maxxine cheers on Coach Gable! Gable goes to a corner, says “A THANK YEW~!” and goes up top! DIVING HEADBUTT!! Cover, SARAH breaks it! But then Maxxine goes up top, to CROSSBODY! Gable and Maxxine are fired up, because it’s time!

Gable takes the letterman’s jacket back, and Maxxine puts it on! “A THANK YEW~!” But Sarah SPEARS Maxxine through the table!! Everyone loses their minds as Gable helps Maxxine from the wreckage. But the Vikings RAM Gable into shields!! Otis rises, and he sees what the Vikings have done to his coach and his girl! He CLOBBERS Ivar, and then he rolls under Erik to CLOBBER him! And again! Otis scoops to SLAM Ivar! And he clinches Erik for an EXPLODER! Fans are thunderous behind Otis as he SPLASHES Ivar! Then he HEADBUTTS Erik! And JABS! And CHOKE SLAM BOMBS?!?

Fans are thunderous as The Dozer has been unleashed! He hits the CATERPILLAR ELBOW!! And he’s not done there! Otis goes up the corner, but Sarah SLAPS him! Ivar CLUBS Otis, Erik joins in, and the Vikings bring RAGNAROK!! Cover, The Viking Raiders win!

Winners: The Viking Raiders, by pinfall

It took all three to stop Otis, but the raid still rolls on. Will nothing stop Erik, Ivar & Sarah from conquering Monday Night Raw?

 

Shayna Baszler VS ???

The Queen of Spades knows a clash with Ronda Rousey is coming, so she wants to sharpen those fangs before she gets to sink in. Will she make her opponent #TapNapOrSnap as the summer heats up?

Raw returns and Nikki Cross makes her entrance. The bell rings and Nikki fires off on Shayna! Shayan shoves her away, dodges, and then gets the KIRAFUDA KLUTCH!! She drags Nikki down fast, and Nikki TAPS! Shayna wins!!

Winner: Shayna Baszler, by submission

Tap it is! Nikki may be wild but “the crowd goes mild!” Ronda is here to mock Shayna! But no, above you. Literally. She’s in the VIP box! Fans are torn as Ronda smirks at Shayna. Ronda says she’s been thinking about the complaint that she, what was it? “Waltzed” into the WWE through the back door? Well do you know what’s on the other side of that door? She does! Which is easier? The front door, which is all the steps from the indies to developmental “where the greatest minds of the industry cultivate your talent until you’re ready for the big stage~!”

Or the back door, where you win a historic Olympic gold medal in Judo, followed by an earthshattering MMA career, only to be thrown to the wolves of WWE without any training, just to emerge a future Hall of Famer within a year? See, Ronda wasn’t given her opporutnity, she took it! And just like in MMA, it took her a fraction of the time it did Shayna, and Ronda eclipsed her yet again. Fans boo and Shayna paces but Ronda says not to blame privilege or circumstances that Ronda is the greatest female fighter of all time, and Shayna is just a knockoff! Shayna gets a mic to say it’s easy to talk the talk from so far away, isn’t it?

Fans cheer Shayna and she says Ronda knows that just like everyone else does, when it comes to being in the ring, doing what wrestlers do, Shayna is a better Ronda than Ronda! So why doesn’t Ronda “waltz” her ass to the ring so they can settle this here, now, tonight!?! Uhhhhh no. Ronda lounges in her skybox and dares Shayna to make her. So Shayna storms up the bleachers! Fans fire up but security stands in the way! Ronda says y’know what? She’ll do Shayna a favor, like she has their entire career. She’s finally getting Shayna on SummerSlam! They’ll face off in Motor City, b*tch! Ronda heads out, but will she regret giving Shayna this shot?

 

Backstage interview with Ricochet.

Jackie is with The One and Only to ask about his feelings after his interaction with Logan Paul last week, in which Logan denied Ricochet a match to get a “real fight” and not just a viral moment. Ricochet says Logan doesn’t get it. Logan thinks Ricochet’s a joke. Obviously, Logan lives in his own little world, so of course he thinks everyone else is a joke compared to him. But Raw is here in Atlanta, GA, the sold out State Farm Arena! And why do you think the fans are here? It’s not because people posted on Instagram. It’s because they’re the WWE. And in this world, Logan Paul is the joke.

Ricochet showed everyone that while Logan said he wanted a real fight, Ricochet brought it, and what happened? Logan was the one down and out. So if Logan wants, why not show up next week on Raw in Tampa, Florida? Ricochet promises to do what he did last week and hit Logan where it really hurts: his ego.

 

The Miz is in the ring.

And he welcomes to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, MizTV! And ladies and gentlemen, he is back! Fans are torn on that, and Miz is surprised they don’t give him “You Still Got It” chants. Last week, in this ring, he beat Tommaso Ciampa in a No Disqualifications match! He is a WINNER! No, they aren’t hearing him. He beat Ciampa, he is a WINNER! Fans are still torn but Miz says he is the biggest star in all of WWE! Just this weekend, he was in the American Century Championship Golf Tournament, an A+ chef’s kiss event, next to the biggest starts in entertainment! Charles Barkley, Miles Teller, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelsey and… Pat McAfee.

Miz says Pat is the most “overpaid loser in all of sports. Besides Trey Young.” Fans boo but Miz says speaking of losing, his guest tonight has been on a downward spiral. This is the first woman to main event and win at WrestleMania, please welcome The Man, Becky Lynch! Fans fire up as Becky makes her entrance and Miz jams out to her theme. Becky takes her seat and Miz has the fans give it up for her one more time. He says to Becky, “Must be nice to sit next to a winner.” Which brings Miz to his first question. Becky lost to Trish Stratus. Then she lost at Money in the Bank. And then she lost to Zoey Stark. “Has The Man lost a step?”

Becky stands up and then TOSSES the chair out of the ring! And then takes Miz’s chair and thrwos it out! Becky says she has lost a lot of things, from titles to friends and maybe even her damn mind! But one thing she hasn’t lost, Miz, is a step! Becky knows how Miz’s stupid show works, she knows she’s not the only one coming out here! So bring Trish out before you lose those tiny testes! Fans chant “TINY BALLS! TINY BALLS!” and Miz says that was a bit much. And thanks for ruining the surprise, because yes, he does have more guests. He’ll bring them out, okay? Please welcome Zoey Stark and Trish Stratus!

Fans are torn as Trish & Zoey make their way to the ring and Becky demands a rematch. She wants to talk about being the GOAT, so why doesn’t Trish face Becky 1v1 without her sidekick? Trish tells Becky to settle down. She is acting like a bratty toddler. In fact, for a moment, Trish thought that was Rue in the ring. Keep her daughter’s name out your damn mouth! Trish asks what th eproblem is. Why is Becky so obsessed? Trish is not gonna fight her. As The Miz eloquently pointed out, she already fought Becky and won. ZOey points out she did, too. So no, Trish isn’t gonna fight Becky again, understand?

But Trish has to say, since she’s been back, she not only beat Becky, Becky not only lost MITB, and Zoey not only beat Becky, but y’know what? Trish & Zoey are done with Becky, they’re moving on! But one more thing that Trish wants and needs. And with MizTV being the perfect platform, Trish wants Becky to finally say “Thank You, Trish.” Oh that’s Trish’s whole thing, right? She wants to feel so high above everyone. This isn’t about paving the way, but about her being a self-centered psycho! Becky let Trish in, let her know she was struggling when no one else did, and Trish hit Becky when she was at her weakest, because Trish knew she couldn’t handle Becky at her strongest!

Zoey keeps Trish calm but Becky says Trish can’t act like she ever did anything for Becky or anyone else. Becky has actually spent more time in the WWE than Trish has. Becky has accomplished more in the WWE than Trish has. Trish is not better than Becky! If Trish wants to talk being the GOAT, the best, then fight her 1v1 and prove that you are as good as you say you are! Or is she only good at talking, running away, hiding behind Zoey, hair flips and social medias- OKAY FINE! She’ll fight you!! But under a few conditions. First off- Shut up, fans. But Becky, you first need to go through Zoey Stark. You didn’t beat Zoey yet.

Becky says done. Oh, Becky will beat the fastest rising star in WWE? Just like that? Well, Trish also needs Becky to do something else. When Zoey wins, Becky needs to get on her knees and say, “Thank You, Trish!” Becky rolls her eyes, but says done. And there’s one more thing. Trish needs one last thing from Becky. As a reminder to Becky and everyone here, Becky needs to TATTOO “Thank You, Trish” across her chest!! Done. Zoey and Trish can’t believe it! And then they attack! They mug Becky 2v1, abut Becky kicks Zoey’s leg, ROCKS Trish, and then BOOTS Zoey! And she snatches the face mask off!!

Trish panics but Becky BOPS her in the nose! And then DECKS Zoey! Becky puts on the mask, and HEADBUTTS Zoey with it! Fans fire up as The Man has not lost a step in the slightest! But will Becky win a match or lose all her dignity gambling with a legend?

 

Bronson Reed VS Shinsuke Nakamura!

The Colossal Aussie was a massive mercenary for The Miz in that No Disqualification match, but this here is for himself. Will “Big” Bronson break the King of Strong Style with a Tsunami? Or will Nakamura be able to bring down Auszilla once and for all?

Raw returns and Bronson makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two rush in! Bronson ducks a kick, they tie up, and Bronson puts Nakamura on the ropes. Bronson lets off, but rushes back in, only for Nakamura to dodge and RIDER KICK! But then Bronson BODY CHECKS Nakamura! Bronson stalks Nakamura to a corner, digs his boot in, and gives him BAD VIBRATIONS! Fans boo but Nakamura stands up to CLUB the leg and ELBOW Bronson! And ENZIGURI! Bronson drops to a knee, Nakamura SLIDING KICKS! Nakamura drags Bronson up, puts him on ropes, and then BOOTS him in the back of the head!

Bronson slumps to the apron and Nakamura goes out to GUILLOTINE KNEE only the apron! Bronson goes out to FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Nakamura falls in a heap and fans boo Bronson but he soaks it up. Bronson then runs to STEAMROLL SENTON! Nakamura is down and Bronson says Nakamura isn’t the king of anything, as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Bronson scoops, only for Nakamura to slip free! Nakamura kicks, Bronson ducks, but not the WHEEL KICK! Fans fire up and Nakamura rises again! “C’MON~!” Bronson runs into the knee! Nakamura fires off strikes, then KICKS and KICKS and ENZIGURIS! Nakamura whips but Bronson reverses!

The Psycho Killer fires off fists, then PSYCHO KNEES Bronson outta the ring! Ciampa dares Bronson to get back up, but Ciampa did hand him the win. Nakamura is furious, because this keeps happening between him and Bronson! Ciampa says that’s on him. Nakamura is upset, and he BOOTS Ciampa down! Nakamura tells Ciampa off in Japanese, and it isn’t nice once you translate it. But will anyone ever truly topple Bronson Reed? Or will he continue to win one way or another until he’s the top dog in the WWE?

 

Sami & Kevin talk backstage.

They’re taping up for their tag title match, and both chuckle at how The Judgment Day thought they were getting something over on them. Will Kevin & Sami dispatch of Damian & Dom to move on to something else? Or will the Punisher & Prodigal Son still manage to snatch the belts away?

 

Backstage interview with Nakamura.

Byron finds Nakamura and asks his reaction to what happened in his match with Bronson Reed. Nakamura says he is tired of everyone getting involved in his business. Well, what about that kick to Ciampa? “BYRON! I SAID… I’m tired of everyone getting involved in my business!!” Seems that includes reporters. Will the King of Strong Style look to sharpen his edge so that everyone knows he means business?

 

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn VS Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio w/ Rhea Ripley & Finn Balor!

The Prizefighter & Great Liberator knew what the Judgment Day wanted tonight, they felt some of it last week in the Six Man Tag match. But will what the Judgment Day said remain true? Will they (not) be fine after tonight’s match? Or will they (not) add to their collection of trophies?

It was chaotic from start to finish, but in the end, Kevin & Sami hold onto the gold! Will this put a real damper on Dom’s attempt at becoming North American Champion tomorrow night? Will the Judgment Day see they don’t run Raw much at all?


My Thoughts:

A great Raw here, with a few confirmed matches for SummerSlam now. Great opening promo and brawl with Cody and Lesnar, with the added heat of Cody’s mother being ringside. Cody VS Lesnar Round 3 at SummerSlam will be good but again, I would think Cody wins out to then move on to some kind of title feud. Speaking of, great opening match with Gunther and Riddle, but even without Imperium ringside, Gunther naturally wins because he’s going to face McIntyre. And while I didn’t think Sonya & Chelsea were winning tonight, that sure changed when Rhea beat down both Liv and Raquel.

As we saw in the main event, Liv went after Rhea for revenge, that could be a possible SummerSlam title match. But as for the tag titles, I hope Sonya & Chelsea actually travel to NXT, as neither Ronda & Shayna nor Liv & Raquel had time with the titles to do that. And yes, there are still tag teams in the NXT Women’s Division, such as Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz, Lash Legend & Jakara Jackson, and Elektra Lopez & Lola Vice. If Chelsea & Sonya are looking for an “easy” first defense to star their reign, they should give one of those teams a shot. But also, maybe this is the opening for a team like Candice & Indi to finally be on screen again.

Speaking of, guess they’re still on and off about that Nikki Cross story with Candice. Nikki gets fed to Shayna, but at least we got a good promo between Shayna and Ronda. Ronda was still kinda motor-mouthing but she got the point across that she’s the talented one in the battle of talent VS hard work. But pretty sure Shayna’s gonna win that SummerSlam match. Bronson VS Nakamura was a really good match, but a little disappointed Ciampa got involved. Though at the same time, we might be getting Heel Nakamura, and that’s fascinating. And then good promo from Ricochet calling out Logan Paul, so of course Logan Paul’s gonna show up now. At least their match is gonna be awesome.

Speaking of, the second ever Viking Rules match was awesome! The No Disqualification nature allowed Sarah and Maxxine to get involved without ruining things, and kudos to Maxxine doing both a crossbody and a table spot in this match. And while the Vikings won, the Alpha Academy deserve to be tag champs, because the fans LOVE Otis. And then great MizTV segment with Becky, Trish & Zoey. I like that Trish has her list of demands for Becky, it’s very Chris Jericho or MJF in AEW. Becky is definitely winning next week, and then Trish will have no choice but to fight Becky at SummerSlam to settle this. Still curious where Lita is in all this, but maybe she’s waiting for SummerSlam.

And of course, great stuff out of Judgment Day and all the stories their attached to. Finn’s part in the group promo ended up redundant when he interrupted Rollins’ interview anyway. And of course Finn suckered Rollins into another attack, and that match is definitely happening for SummerSlam. But I do like that Rollins continues to defend that the WHC is to be the “fighting champion” top title and that he wants matches with all the big names on Raw today. Rollins might beat Finn, he might not, it depends on how they wanna play the drama between Finn and Priest. And then great bit they had as part of the awesome tag title main event, too. Kevin & Sami of course retain but what great work with the frantic pace that got the fans going wild by the end. It feels a bit like WWE wants to show everyone, especially their doubters, that they can still do big story and big action, not just one.

My Score: 8.7/10

It’s the Revolution Zero Hour!

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Willie Mack, Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of The Mack, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

 

All-Star Scramble Qualifier Triple Threat: Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith!

So far, it is Chris Jericho, Lance Archer, Will Hobbs, Wardlow, Hook, Brian Cage, and after last night’s Rampage, CMLL’s Magnus. One spot remains, will the eighth man have #CeroMiedo, represent Top Flight, or be looking for his next bounty?

A huge win for Angelo Dorado, he is the final man in the All-Star Scramble! Will Dante use his speed and agility to snatch that golden ticket to the top?

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees. Sydal KICKS and Daniels BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Quen stays in this and Collision goes picture in picture.

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Zay brings Daniels up but Daniels throws body shots and forearms! Daniels runs but Zay LARIATS him down! Zay stays between Daniels and his corner, then he brings Daniels up to snapmare and chinlock. Zay grinds Daniels down, Daniels endures, and Collision returns to single picture. Sydal coaches Daniels as he fights up, and Daniels throws body shots. Zay CLUBS away on Daniels, shines the bald head, then kicks low. But Daniels stops the Twist of Fate! Zay comes back, into a FLATLINER! Both men are down and the fans rally up! Zay and Daniels crawl, hot tags to Quen and Sydal! Sydal DROPKICKS Quen!

Sydal JUMP KICKS Quen, ROUNDHOUSES him, then JUMP KICKS Zay! Sydal KICKS Quen, KICKS Zay, repeat! The fans fire up, Sydal dodges Private Party and DOUBLE RANAS! Then QUESTION MARK KICK for Zay! Quen swings but Sydal gets under to wrench and lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Quen is still in this and Sydal grows frustrated. Sydal basement dropkicks Zay into buckles, then he runs corner to corner at Quen. Quen dodges and the splash hits buckles! Zay runs in, but Sydal BOOTS! Sydal runs up but Kassidy ducks, Quen BOOTS Sydal! Quen reels Sydal in, Kassidy goes up, but SWANTON NECKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up and Quen can’t believe it! Quen calls to Zay, they get Sydal up to mug him. Private Party double whip, Sydal KICKS Quen then HEEL KICKS Zay, and a ROUNDHOUSE to Quen! Tag to Daniels and he JABS away on Private Party. Quen kicks low, Private Party double whip, but Daniels ducks the lariats! Sydal & Daniels LARIAT Private Party! The fans fire up as Sydal goes up and Daniels brings Quen around. Daniels underhooks but Kassidy saves Quen! Quen back drops free! Sydal leaps over Quen to METEORA Zay! Daniels is back up, but Quen dodges to Michael Jackson “HEE HEE~,” only for Daniels to dodge the Pele!

Daniels reels Quen in for ANGEL’S WINGS!! Cover, but wait, who’s storming down the ramp? It’s TRIPLE J! Jeff Jarrett and Sonjay Dutt distract the ref, while Jay Lethal gets in to give Daniels a LETHAL COMBINATION! Lethal drags Quen onto Daneils and now the ref sees the cover, Private Party wins!

Winners: Private Party, by pinfall

Quen & Zay get an assist from their future tag partners in Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Sonjay does his best to dance to the music, but will this dirty half dozen find a way to beat all the Six Man Champions tomorrow night?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Cassandra Golden!

Serena Deeb may be undefeated in her return, but so has La Mera Mera! The former AEW Women’s World Champion wants to get some gold again, will she make it 5-0 in 2024? Or will this Collision be Golden?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally as the two tie up and ago around. Golden shoves Rosa away, but Rosa shrugs that off. Golden runs in but Rosa gets her in a facelock! Rosa throws knees into Golden, but Golden powers up to throw Rosa away! Golden runs up, Rosa dodges the boot to BOOT Golden! Rosa eggs Golden on, then CHOPS her! And LARIATS her! Rosa fires up and the fans are with her! Rosa kicks Golden around, asks who is questioning her return, then bumps Golden off buckles. Rosa CHOPS, then CHOPS again! The fans fire up as Rosa stands Golden up and CHOPS again! Rosa then brings Golden around, fireman’s carries, but Golden fights free!

Golden ROCKS Rosa and Rosa staggers to a corner. Golden runs in, but Rosa dodges to SHOTGUN Golden down! The fans fire up and Rosa runs corner to corner to HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Rosa pushes Golden out of the corner, climbs up the corner, and she DOUBLE DIVING STOMPS! Golden writhes but Rosa still keeps on her! COBRA CLUTCH STRETCH! Golden taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

That’s a new twist to La Mera Mera’s arsenal! And she says it’s story time! “I’m still here, right? La Mera Mera hasn’t left. I know you wanna push me aside, but I won’t back down. Because it’s my time. And remember, get a little closer, because you’re gonna get burned!” Is nothing and no one going to stop Rosa from taking a title in 2024?

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia VS Christian Cage, Killswitch/Luchasaurus, Brian Cage & Roderick Strong!

There are many titles on the line this Sunday, and the AEW International Championship and AEW TNT Championships are no exception! Freshly Squeezed will be facing the Savior of the Backbreaker while Captain Charisma will be facing the Dragonslayer, and let’s not forget the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Machine are both in the All-Star Scramble! Which quirky quartet captures some critical momentum just 24 hours away from Revolution?

The teams sort out and while Garcia is glaring at Christian, Christian of course backs down. Instead, we get Brian Cage and #JustTrent. They tie up, Cage shoves Trent to a corner but Trent dodges the clothesline. Trent CHOPS, Cage runs up but Trent dodges again to headlock. Cage powers up and powers out, then he runs Trent over! “Who betta than Cage, huh!?” Trent scrambles to his feet, talks it over with his corner, and tags in Garcia! Garcia dares Christian to step up but it’s Roddy who tags in instead. Roddy and Garcia circle but Roddy SPITS at Cassidy! Cassidy leaves that alone so Roddy and Garcia tie up.

Roddy and Garcia go around, Roddy wrenches through to wristlock. Garcia rolls, rolls and rolls to get free! The fans cheer as Garcia wags his finger. Garcia and Roddy feel things out, tie up, and Roddy wrenches to wrangle Garcia with another wristlock. Garcia fights up, but Roddy wrenches again. Garcia grabs at Roddy for a clinch, pushes him around and turns him, then slips to a headlock! The fans cheer this technical exchange as Roddy pries at the hold. Roddy pops out the back to headlock and hit the takeover. Garcia headscissors, Roddy moves around, and Roddy turns Garcia over. Roddy then ties the legs up, and he smacks Garcia on the head.

The fans boo but Roddy stares Garcia down. Garcia stands, they tie up, and go around. Garcia puts Roddy in a corner, the ref counts, and Garcia lets off slowly, to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again!

The ref wants someone to get in, so Killswitchasaurus and Captain Charisma step up! Cage also joins in, but then Cassidy & Trent back Hook and Garcia up! The fans fire up for the stare down, Collision goes picture in picture.

The ref has everyone cool off, but Christian still swipes at Garcia. Garcia kicks at Christian but this boils back down to just Garcia and Roddy. Roddy tags Cage back in, he circles with Garcia. They tie up, Cage RAMS Garcia into a corner! And again, and again! Cage then CHOPS Garcia while Prince Nana talks trash. Cage soaks up the heat, runs corner to corner, but Garcia BOOTS him! Cage tries again but Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Cage hits buckles, Garcia does his dance! Then Garcia BOOT WASHES Cage halfway out the ring!

Roddy brings Garcia around, tags in Luchasaurus, and they mug Garcia. Luchasaurus scoops to SNAKE EYES Garcia, then runs to CLOBBER him! Luchasaurus stays between Garcia and his team, then drags Garcia up. Luchasaurus TOSSES Garcia to the corner, fires off body shots and an UPPERCUT, then tags in Christian. Now the Patriarch of AEW wants after Garcia, and he CHOKES Garcia against ropes as Collision goes to break!

Collision returns and Cage has Garcia in an open corner. Cage whips corner to corner, gets the Terminator drums started, then runs in. Cage blocks a boot to ROCK Garcia! Cage then scoops Garcia, but Garcia slips fere to shove him into the corner! Garcia climbs up on Cage and he rains down fists! The fans count along, but Cage shoves Garcia down at 6!

Roddy stomps Garcia, tags Christian, and they stomp Garcia together while fans boo.

Christian keeps Garcia from his team, puts him back int he corner and CHOPS! Tag back to Roddy, he CHOPS Garcia! Roddy CHOPS again, then tags Cage. The stomping resumes, and then Cage drags Garcia up. Cage RAMS Garcia into the corner, RAMS him again, then soaks up the heat. But Garcia fires off hands on the rest!

Trent rallies on Roddy as revenge for what The Undisputed Kingdom has been up to! Roddy swings, Trent dodges to METEORA! Christian gets in, but he gets a GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent holds on, GERMAN SUPLEX again! Then the HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up as Trent dodges Roddy and gives him a TORNADO DDT! Trent builds speed and he DIVES, into Luchasaurus’ hands!

Trent goes to the apron but Roddy uses that to ROPE GUILLOTINE!

The fans boo and Trent flounders, but Collision again goes picture in picture.

Trent sputters, but Cage stomps him on the apron! The ref is too busy with Trent’s team as they protest so Cage gets away with that. Luchasaurus then CHOPS Trent in a corner! And ROCKS him! And stomps him! Luchasaurus drags Trent up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Trent tumbles up and out to the floor! Luchasaurus roars, Trent sputters, and the ref is busy with Cassidy so Christian gets a cheap shot in! Roddy wants one but the ref is paying attention to them by then. Luchasaurus fetches Trent into the ring, then keeps him from his corner with a chinlock. Luchasaurus CLUBS away on Trent’s chest!

Luchasaurus drags Trent up, tags in Christian, and The Patriarchy mugs Trent. Christian snapmares Trent and then claws at Trents’ face!

Does Cassidy stand a chance of retaining the International Championship when he can barely stand on his own two feet? All this and more will be answered tomorrow night at Revolution!


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
