Charlotte Flair & Shotzi Blackheart VS Bayley & Iyo Sky w/ Dakota Kai!

The Queen is in Boston, and she’s bringing some pretty crazy reinforcements! Will Charlotte and the Wild Child bring down the Role Model & Evil Genius? Or will Damage CTRL continue to be in control of the SmackDown Women’s Division?

As if Bayley hasn’t upset Shotzi enough in the past, Bayley kicks and stomps the tank! The teams sort out and Charlotte starts against Bayley. Fans “WOO~!” as Bayley talks trash. Bayley shoves Charlotte, but Charlotte shoves Bayley! Charlotte then dodges Bayley, BLASTS Iyo and CHOPS away on Bayley! Iyo gets in but Charlotte ROCKS her! Bayley ambushes Charlotte, Shotzi runs in, it is a brawl! Charlotte TOSSES Bayley, Iyo CLUBS Shotzi, and Charlotte goes out to RAM Bayley into barriers! Iyo TOSSES Shotzi out, but Charlotte helps her up. Iyo gets them both with an ASAI MOONSAULT! Direct hit and fans fire up as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and Iyo has Shotzi down with a chinlock. Fans rally up, Shotzi fights to her feet and she arm-drags free! Shotzi leaps but into a FLAPJACK! Iyo tags Bayley and DMG CTRL drags Shotzi from Charlotte. They then surround Shotzi, run in, and DOUBLE BOOT Shotzi down! Bayley covers, TWO! Charlotte was there on standby but Bayley shoos her away. Bayley drops an elbow on Shotzi, then CHOKES her on the ropes! The ref counts, Bayley lets off at 4, and she mocks the fans. Bayley has Shotzi in the corner and stomps her down. Bayley stands Shotzi up but Shotzi throws hands! Bayley knees low then CLUBS Shotzi down!

Fans rally but Bayley clamps on a Camel Clutch! Shotzi fights up, fans rally, and Shotzi reaches out. Bayley holds her back by an arm, kicks a leg out, then wags her finger at Charlotte. Bayley whips Shotzi to the corner, runs in but into an ELBOW! Shotzi elbows Iyo down, too, then ENZIGURIS Bayley! Fans fire up as Shotzi hurries, but Bayley grabs a foot! Shotzi hops up, fights free and KICKS, then QUESTION MARK KICKS! Hot tag to Charlotte! Charlotte goes up, to DOUBLE CROSSBODY DMG CTRL! Fans fire up as Charlotte CHOPS Bayley! And CHOPS Iyo! And repeat! Bayley gets more CHOPS, and the fans “WOO~!”

Fans fire up as Charlotte then runs, but Bayley dodges! Charlotte scoops Bayley, to FALL AWAY SLAM! And kip up! Fans fire up even more now as Charlotte aims from a corner. Handspring and LARIAT! Iyo runs in but into a kick! Charlotte hits an EXPLODER! Charlotte then gets Bayley’s legs, steps through, but Bayley cradles! TWO!! Charlotte escapes and trips Bayley to step through again! FIGURE FOUR! Bayley endures, Iyo METEORAS! Bayley is free now and she pushes Charlotte to the corner. Tag to Iyo and they hoist Charlotte up top. Iyo climbs up, Bayley tags back in, SUPER STEINER sets Charlotte up in the drop zone!

Bayley climbs, but wait, ASUKA sneaks up on Dakota! And she snatches the belt from her! Iyo is freaking out, Charlotte BOOTS Bayley down! Fans fire up as Charlotte tags Shotzi back in! Charlotte BOOTS Iyo! Asuka grins, Charlotte is a little unsure about this, but Shotzi gives Bayley the FISHERMAN DDT! Cover, Shotzi & Charlotte win!

Winners: Charlotte Flair & Shotzi Blackheart, by pinfall

The Empress of Tomorrow is VERY happy that DMG CTRL just lost this one! She holds up the belt to taunt Iyo, but Iyo steps into the ring with her. Fans fire up as these two old rivals meet again. The belt is put aside, the two talk trash and egg each other on. Fans want to see a fight, but Asuka takes her leave for now. Will the Evil Genius have to study very hard to be ready for Asuka?

 

Paul Heyman is on the phone.

He’s been asking and asking, but- Oh, Jimmy Uso walks in. And he tells “OG” that stress ain’t even word, Uce. He was told by John Cena that “the wrong Uso” quit, and then little brother Solo said Jimmy ain’t out the Bloodline unless they say he out the Bloodline. So, OG, nobody told him about being out, so guess what? He in. #WeTheOnes. What’s the strategy for AJ Styles? Heyman says first off, Solo isn’t here tonight. And neither is The Tribal Chief. But always represented. And yeah, if you’re not out, then you’re in. But there’s like, in, and then there’s in. Yeah, and Jimmy is in, so let’s go!

No, Jimmy isn’t in until Roman Reigns says you’re in, BUT! He did authorize Jimmy the house and the car and the yacht. Jimmy, do yourself a favor. Handle business in the ring with AJ Styles, and Heyman will handle the business with the Bloodline. And before Jimmy knows it, Heyman will bring this family back together. Right, good. Jimmy wants a handshake but Heyman hurries away. Heyman is stressing, but then he crosses paths with AJ Styles. Styles sees Heyman, and Heyman says he was just talking about Styles. Doesn’t Styles think he has enough problems in his life before deciding he wants to tangle with Heyman?

Styles backs Heyman up against a road case! Styles asks Heyman who he thinks he is! Heyman has zero clout around here without Roman! But then Jimmy attacks Styles from behind! And sends him over road cases! Jimmy grins and says he just handled that business, OG. YEET. Heyman nods and gets back on his phone. “Call Roman Reigns.” Is the Wise Man about to put in a good word for Jimmy like he promised?

 

Damage CTRL regroups backstage.

Bayley can’t believe this keeps happening! What is wrong with people? Kayla Braxton walks over, apologizes for interrupting, and says Asuka certainly made her presence known tonight. Yeah, no duh, Kayla! And y’know what? Asuka is NOT the champ anymore, so she should mind her own business. Otherwise, DMG CTRL puts her on the shelf like they did Bianca Belair. So is that a challenge? Iyo says yeah, she IS ready for Asuka, this is the challenge! And for the title!! DMG CTRL heads out, is the Evil Genius making a foolish decision?

 

LA Knight is here!

Boston fires up for The Mega Star who is coming off a mega win over The Miz last week at Payback! But now, he wants to get even with a certain other big ego in The Now. Knight gets the mic, but he hears the crowd go wild first before he says, “LEMME TALK TO YA!” Fans go even wilder, and he says he isn’t sure if everyone saw The Miz’s “scintillating performance on Raw,” but let’s go ahead and dissect it. How’s his song go? I Came To Play? Well, if Knight was a complete moron, he’d say we look at the adjective. But he is NOT a moron, so let’s look at the verb. “Play.” Knight came here to walk straight to the damn top, and anybody who stands in his way, you already got a taste.

But Miz here, he plays dress-up. Then he plays make-believe. And Miz whines and cries about Knight winning because of John Cena. Right? “YEAH!” “NAH NAH!” Knight didn’t ask for Cena, didn’t need Cena, or even needs Cena’s endorsement. Knight’s endorsed himself for 20 years and is standing right here. Knight has all the respect in the world for what Cena’s done, but in the end, Cena just counted the three. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, Miz, but you will swallow it. But if you wanna be a roach that hangs on until it gets stomped out again, then consider that challenge- Wait, here comes Grayson Waller.

Fans boo as the Moment Maker swaggers on stage, and he wants everyone to hold on. Waller asks “La Knight” if this is a good idea after Miz “ran through John Cena” on Raw like he wasn’t even there. So Waller and his associate Theory were backstage talking, and well, he’ll just bring Theory out so they can both talk about it. Theory makes his entrance, and Waller says they were talking about their win last week against the Hall of Famer, Rey Mysterio, and his stepson, Santos Escobar. In fact, that means they’re the only tag team on the roster that is undefeated! And realistically, the greatest tag team of all time!

Fans boo, it’s a 1-0 record. Knight says they must be proud of themselves. They’re clearly fan favorites for getting all these boos. But why’re they telling Knight? If she’s not too sick of it, go tell mommy. And also, tell her Knight said hi. Waller says Knight’s clearly talking about Theory’s mom. Theory then mockingly says, “Lemme talk to ya.” Fans boo but Theory asks who is the ref that beat Knight? Oh right, the Greatest Of All Time, John Cena. The man that THEORY beat! Waller mocks “Yeah!” Then this is the Mega Star, who Theory’s also beaten! Yeah! So Waller, isn’t he, at only 26 years old, already two-time United States Champion? YEEEEAH~!

Fans boo more but Theory says Knight is, uh… Well, he’s just been here. And glad to see it, because Knight can soak in his 15 minutes of fame. When Theory’s done with Knight, Miz won’t even waste his time! Knight says these two are “cute” together. If they’re done boring everyone, why not let Knight show the incels how it’s done? Who’s the one on the right? A mush-mouth moron. YEAH! And the one on the left? A cross-eyed halfwit. YEAH! But hey, if you two crotch goblins wanna get served, we can make it happen right now! Because the TD Garden stands on Legends Way.

And in a very legendary way, Theory, at just 26 years old, he can get his keister kicked! With everybody saying “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!!” Fans are all fired up, will they get even louder as Knight takes Theory to school?

LA Knight VS Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller!

SmackDown returns and Waller joins commentary and informs us that next week, John Cena returns to be the guest on The Grayson Waller Effect! Let’s just hope that’s more real than The Miz having Cena on MizTV. Anyway, the bell rings, Knight and Theory tie up, and they go around. Theory headlocks, Knight rolls and throws Theory away but Theory headlocks. Knight powers out, but Theory runs him over! Fans rally for Knight but Theory talks trash. The fans chant “THEORY SUCKS!” Knight and Theory reset, circle, and tie up. Theory headlocks, Knight powers up and out, but Theory runs him over again!

Things speed up, Knight CLOBBERS Theory! Theory flounders to a corner, Knight whips Theory but Theory reverses, only for Knight to hit a SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Knight kicks Theory, brings him up and scoops but Theory slips out to shove Knight into a corner. Theory RAMS into Knight, fires off elbows, then digs his knee in! The ref counts, Theory lets off, only to drag Knight up for a snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Theory grins and mocks the “YEAH!” but fans boo. Knight goes to the apron, Theory storms up but Knight holds ropes! Knight suplexes but Theory fights free. Theory rushes in but Knight moves to KNEE Theory back!

Knight slingshots to FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Theory tumbles all the way out but Knight hurries after. Waller is a bit worried, and Knight SMACKS Theory off the desk! And again! And again! Fans fire up as Knight dribble Theory as good as any Boston Celtic! Knight then leaves Theory behind to refresh the count, then he comes back to put Theory in the ring. Knight sends Theory into a corner and runs in to clothesline! Knight then whips back the other way, but Theory tosses Knight up to HOTSHOT him down! Fans boo as Theory puts Knight on the apron, for a DRAPING NECKBREAKER to the floor!

Fans boo but Waller cheers the baller combo, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Theory has Knight in a chinlock. Knight fights up, throws body shots, and kicks low. Theory blocks, ducks the enziguri, but Knight avoids the elbow drop! Theory staggers up, swings, but into counter punches! Knight CLOBBERS Theory, dodges and clinches, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans fire up as Knight hits a DDT! Theory staggers to ropes, fans fire up, and Knight stomps a mudhole in! “YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!” Knight runs corner to corner to KNEE WASH! Fans fire up and Knight fireman’s carries Theory. Theory slips free, but Knight blocks a boot. Theory ROCKS Knight with a left forearm!

Theory somersaults to BLOCK BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fans rally up while Theory grows frustrated. Theory scowls and shakes his head as fans rally for Knight. Theory runs in but Knight TOSSES him out! Knight builds speed to WRECK Theory with a dropkick! Boston fires up more as Knight storms around Theory. Knight drags Theory up but Theory fights the suplex. Theory suplexes Knight to the floor! Waller sees that with the ref distracted, he hurries to untie buckle pads! Theory sees that, nods to Waller, and then he gets Knight in the ring. Theory drags Knight up, whips him in, but Knight stops himself!

Theory back suplexes, Knight lands on his feet to shove Theory, scoop and POWERSLAM! Fans fire up and they spell it out with Knight! “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!!” ELBOW DROP! Knight waits on Theory, Waller distracts him! Knight swipes at Waller but he gets away, so Theory rolls Knight up! TWO!! Theory hurries and gets around, but Knight switches and shoves Theory! Theory stops from hitting the bare buckle! Knight catches him in B F T!! Cover, Knight wins!

Winner: LA Knight, by pinfall

For the first time ever, Boston is happy LA wins! But Waller sneaks in, only for Knight to catch him first! Waller tries to explain he was just checking on Theory, and then he runs away. Will Knight take this momentum and turn it into gold?

 

Backstage interview with AJ Styles.

Cathy Kelley is with the Phenomenal One as he checks his teeth, and she asks that after the attack, does Styles feel he is in any condition to compete tonight? He’s still standing, ain’t he? And if he’s standing, he can fight. Jimmy Uso can jump Styles as many times as he wants, but nothing is gonna stop Styles from tearing Jimmy’s head off tonight. Styles heads out, will he personally make sure Jimmy’s not back in the Bloodline?

 

Paul Heyman talks with Adam Pearce.

He says that no one, not even AJ Styles, should be putting their hands on the Wise Man. And Pearce needs to handle this, after he tells us who SmackDown is getting from Raw in return for Jey Uso. Pearce says Heyman can keep asking, but he knows as well as Pearce does that such decisions come from much higher up. But in walks LA Knight saying that we heard from Miz on Monday, and we heard from Knight tonight. Make the match, Knight VS Miz round 2! If Miz wants his chin checked one more time, Knight will do it! Pearce says they’ll do it next week. Knight likes that idea. Then consider it official.

Knight looks at Heyman and Heyman says they’ve never been formally introduced, have they? His name is Paul Heyman, and he is a huge admirer of Knight’s work. Really? Yeah! See? Get it? Catchy! Heyman loves it! The fans have the shirts, and they say the things. Heyman wants to help Knight in another way: the next time the guy outside the door tells Knight that Heyman is in here doing business, do yourself a favor and knock first. Are we clear? “Yeah.” Heyman smirks and says okay, and then leaves. Is Heyman the one who should be careful about knocking on that door?

 

Finn Balor & Damian Priest w/ Dominik Mysterio VS The Brawling Brutes!

Mami Rhea is away in India for Superstar Spectacle, but she’s trusting her boys to handle this on their own. Will The Prince & Punisher, Prodigal Son in their corner, prove that the Judgment Day runs ALL of the WWE? Or will Ridge Holland & Pete Dunne defend the honor of FIGHT NIGHT?

SmackDown returns and Priest has the mic to say, “All rise for the crew that has all the gold! And ALL RISE for the Judgment Day!” Fans are torn but Finn then asks, “Who’s better than us?” “Nobody!” “That’s right! Nobody! So SmackDown, take a look at Senor Money in the Bank and Grand Slam Finn, your Undisputed Tag Team Champions!” Fans are again torn, but Finn says they’re still celebrating the one year anniversary AND being NXT North American Champion, Dirty Dom! Dom starts speaking, but the fans boo all together now. Dom says they can’t forget Mami, who is halfway across the globe in India, proving she’s the most DOMINANT Women’s World Champion!

Priest says they are all proud of Rhea Ripley! Yes, PROUD. But speaking of being proud, they’re proud that they accomplished something not even The Bloodline could do. In fact, they did something not even Roman Reigns could do. They not only beat Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens, they took these tag titles from them! Dom tells Jey Uso, which gets fans to boo him again, but Dom says that there’s always a place here for Jey in the Judgment Day. They are all equals! And they are the most DOMINANT group in all the WWE! But wait, here come the Brawling Brutes! Fans fire up as Dunne has a mic, and he tells Boston, “IT’S FIGHT NIGHT!!”

Fans fire up as Ridge takes the mic to ask Butch, “I couldn’t hear because Dom was being booed so loud, but did he say that these guys are the most dominant group in WWE? Well, the Brawling Brutes are here, and we’re looking to put on a banger here in Bean Town!” Judgment Day looks so proud with their shiny new belts, but they couldn’t have picked the worst first opponents. Ridge has made a habit of breaking fellas like them! But, but, but… It’s not Ridge you should worry about. It’s Dunne! Finn laughs and asks if the others heard this. They need to worry about this guy? Finn doesn’t care about Dunne!

But Dunne grabs Finn’s fingers and SNAPS them! Then Dunne dodges Priest! Ridge clotheslines Priest out, then the Brutes double whip Finn! Finn stops himself, bails out, will he and Priest be able to regroup and get back at the Brutes for that?

SmackDown returns and the match is already underway, and Dunne runs in at the corner, only for Priest to DECK him! Priest drags Dunne up, tags Finn, and they mug Dunne. Finn sits Dunne up to ELBOW him in the head again and again! The ref reprimands, Finn shakes out the beat up fingers, and then he clamps on a cording hold to grind Dunne. Dunne fights up, wrangles Finn and isolates the arm, to STOMP the arm! Fans fire up and Dunne brings Finn around. Dunne double wristlocks Finn, Ridge tags in, and Dunne feeds Finn to Ridge’s facelock SWING! Fans fire up as Ridge then shifts to a stalling BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Ridge drags Finn up again, scoops, but Finn claws eyes! Tag to Priest, Ridge runs in but into a KICK! Priest runs to RAM Ridge, but Ridge rebounds to RAM Priest! Priest runs Ridge over! Fans fire up, Priest brings Ridge in, and Ridge fireman’s carries! Priest CLUBS free, then tries again, only for Ridge to try again! Priest CLUBS away on Ridge, taunts Dunne, and he brings Ridge in, but Ridge fireman’s carries once more! Finn rushes in, but Ridge just adds him to the pile! DOUBLE BACK DROP! Fans fire up as Ridge takes aim, and he waits on Priest to stand up. But Dom distracts! Ridge swipes at Dom, he gets away, and Priest CLOBBERS Ridge!

Priest rains down fists on Ridge, then he tags Finn in. Pretty Deadly is watching backstage, Elton Prince still in a wheelchair even though it was his arm that got injured. Finn & Priest double whip Ridge to mule kick, front kick, low kick and then SCISSOR KICK! Cover, TWO! Finn CLUBS Ridge on the neck, then clamps on a chinlock. Finn grinds Ridge down, fans rally up, and Ridge fights up to his feet. Finn facelocks to keep Ridge from Dunne, but Ridge powers up! Ridge makes it a few steps but Finn knees him low! Ridge tries again, but Finn throws another knee. Fans rally, Ridge powers up, and he gives one last gas to TOSS Finn away!

Hot tag to Dunne and fans fire up as he dodges Finn to GAMANGIRI Priest! Then Dunne dodges Finn to GAMANGIRI again and again! Dunne snapmares to then drop KNEES on Finn’s arm! And then SHINING WIZARD! Finn bails out but Dunne goes up and out, then up the corner! ASAI MOONSAULT takes both Finn & Priest down! Boston is thunderous for the Bruiserweight as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Dunne has Finn up top! SUPER DUPER PLEX! Dunne fires up, fans are with him, and Dunne pump handles! BITTER- NO, Finn slips out for EYE OF THE HURRICANE! Both men are down and fans rally. Pretty Deadly is watching intensely as we get hot tags to Priest and Ridge! Ridge fires off forearms, Priest BELL CLAPS! And KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! ROLLING HAYMAKER! Ridge rebounds to block the haymaker! And the other! OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Fans fire up as Ridge runs in, SPLASH! Tag to Dunne, and Ridge scoops Priest, SHOTGUN NORTHERN LIGHTS BOMB! Cover, TWO!!

Priest survives and Dom coaches him but Dunne aims from across the way. Dunne runs in, but Priest hits a JUMP KICK! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Priest snarls. Priest drags Dunne up, winds up and UPPERCUTS! Then a JUMP KICK for Ridge! Priest hauls Dunne up, DIRTY DEEDS!! Cover, TWO!?! Dunne survives again and Priest is furious! Priest drags Dunne up but Dunne brings his hands down, to STOMP them! And BASEMENT DROPKICK! Priest flounders away, Finn tags in! But Dunne dodges Finn to SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! Dom distracts again, but Dunne grabs him by his mullet! For BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN!!

But Finn rolls Dunne up! TWO!! Finn runs up to SLINGBLADE! Finn aims, SHOTGUN! Dunne hits buckles and flops into a drop zone! Finn goes up, CUOP DE- NO, Dunne dodges and ghost pins! TWO!! ENZIGURI! PELE!! Dunne rebounds and Finn hurries to tag Priest! Priest runs up to choke grip! SOUTH OF- ENZIGURI! Hot tag to Ridge! Fans fire up as Ridge POUNCES Priest! Dunne goes up a corner, Ridge reels Priest in to a Canadian Rack! Finn SHOVES Dunne down! Priest slips free to choke grip Ridge, SOUTH OF HEAVEN SLAM!! And then SOUTH OF HEAVEN of Dunne onto Ridge!!

Tag to Finn and he goes right up! COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Judgment Day wins!

Winners: Finn Balor & Damian Priest, by pinfall

The tag team champions definitely got a fight from the Brutes, but Dirty Dom was enough to tip the scales when needed. The Judgment Day stands tall on Fight Night, but wait! BOBBY LASHLEY is here, with the Street Profits! The All Mighty leads Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford to the ring, and they stare down Judgment Day. Fans fire up as Lashley has a mic and he stares Priest down. “You guys are right about one thing, The Bloodline is crumbling,. But it ain’t the Judgment Day taking over. It’s gonna be us!” Fans like the sound of that! Will the Almighty and his Profits tear down The Prince, the Punisher and the Prodigal Son?

 

The OC talks backstage.

They’re watching videos on a smart phone, Mia Yim and Karl Anderson get Luke Gallows to do his Finkel impersonation. Styles walks over, still in no mood. Do they have any idea what’s going on? Yeah, he’s got that big main event match with Jimmy! Does he want them out there? Oh, good to see they’re on top of things. So did they see Jimmy jump Styles from behind? Oh, right, sorry. Styles slaps Karl’s phone down!! They’re sorry!? Karl says hey, they told him not to get involved in this Bloodline business! Styles gets upset and says the OC has ALWAYS had each other’s back! Right or wrong, they ALWAYS had each other’s backs!

Styles says if this is the way things are going to be, he doesn’t need them anywhere near ringside tonight. Styles storms off, will Michin & The Good Brothers figure out how to get right?

 

SmackDown shares highlights from Superstar Spectacle.

Earlier today, though 7:30 PM India Standard Time, the WWE finally held this event in India! Seth Rollins, John Cena, Sami Zayn, Drew McIntyre, Matt Riddle, Shanky, Indus Sher and even The Great Khali were there in Hyderabad! Will this spectacle only be even bigger next year?

 

Asuka speaks.

First she rants in Japanese that she’s supposed to be afraid of Damage CTRL? HAH! Then in English, Asuka says “They forgot about me. They forgot I was the champion, and never got a match. Iyo has MY title!” She goes back to tearing into Iyo in Japanese, and says that in two weeks, that Asuka is taking it back. “Iyo-chan, NO ONE is ready for Asuka!” The Empress is more than ready, will she show the Evil Genius that she’s been the biggest fool of them all?

 

Jimmy Uso VS AJ Styles!

First, he said he was out and no one could tell him what to do. But then he said he was more than ready to come back to the table. He wants Heyman to keep his word and get him back in, but will he fail to hold up his part and handle AJ Styles? Or will the Phenomenal One handle this issue himself and take Jimmy out?

SmackDown returns and Styles makes his entrance. The bell rings and Jimmy rushes in! Styles dodge the superkick, then fires off on Jimmy in the ropes! The ref counts, Styles lets off, to SWEEP the leg! Jimmy falls hard and then falls out of the ring! Styles goes out after him, chases him back into the ring, and Jimmy cradles! TWO!! Jimmy gets around, rolls Styles up, with feet on the ropes! The ref sees that, stops the count, Jimmy is upset, but Styles DECKS him!

The ring count climbs, Styles says Jimmy ain’t nothing! Jimmy keeps going around the outside, the count is 6 of 10, and Jimmy rushes in. They tie up, Styles throws hands, but Jimmy shoves Styles to UPPERCUT him down! Jimmy storms up, brings Styles around and HEADBUTTS him down! Cover, ONE!

Heyman smirks and Jimmy grins, confident that he has their backing now. Jimmy brings Styles over to SMACK him off the steel steps! Styles slumps down, Jimmy holds up the one, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns once again and Styles throws hands on Jimmy! Styles backs Jimmy down, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! Styles whips, Jimmy reverses and back drops high and hard! Solo and Heyman are even closer to ringside now and Styles goes to a corner. Jimmy storms up and he throws down hands.

Styles wrenches, gets around, and hits a BIG back suplex! Both men are down and Heyman frowns now. Both men rise, and Styles has Jimmy first, but Jimmy pushes him away.

Jimmy talks trash but Styles eggs him on. Jimmy SLAPS Styles! Styles SLAPS back! They stand, SLAP back and forth, harder and harder, then Styles blocks a kick! Styles spins Jimmy but the DRAGON WHIP hits! Jimmy grins but Styles PELES back! Fans fire up while both men are down again but Heyman starts to yawn. Styles and Jimmy stir, and Styles goes to ropes.

Solo storms into the ring but Styles gets away! Only for the Judgment Day to attack!? Finn has had his beef with Styles in the past, now he and Priest puts Styles in the ring for Solo! Fans boo but Heyman is intrigued. Solo stands Styles up to SAMOAN SPIKE! Solo stares Finn & Priest down, but Finn smiles. Is the Judgment Day securing their own place at the table?


My Thoughts:

A really good SmackDown here, with great progress made in the faction warfare. Judgment Day of course shows up because the Undisputed Tag Team Championships allow Finn & Priest to go anywhere they want. Really good promo from them to lead into a really good match with Brawling Brutes, and good showing for the Brutes even though they lost. And great move to have Lashley & The Profits confront Judgment Day. Great stuff out of this building story of Bloodline and OC, as well. Good promos from Heyman, Jimmy and Styles, and then Styles bringing out that Pitbull mentality he once punched Vince with. I do hope The OC gets back in gear now that Judgment Day is gonna also be on SmackDown.

Really good main event match from Styles VS Jimmy with Solo & Heyman showing up. But then good surprise for Styles to still win, only for Judgment Day to attack Styles. I feel like this is a very early seed for Survivor Series. Judgment Day can team with Jimmy & Solo in a traditional 5v5 against The OC, Jey Uso, and possibly Cody Rhodes, who may end up traded to SmackDown as discussed on Monday. Or we end up with some form of WarGames so that we can get the various factions involved, like Almighty Profits VS Judgment Day VS The OC with Bloodline hanging back because Roman ain’t getting in on that.

Great stuff out of LA Knight here on SmackDown. Good promo battle with him, Theory and Waller. I can’t even begin to describe how I laughed at Knight inventing the phrase “crotch goblin.” Knight VS Theory was a great match, even with Waller getting involved a bit. Knight then has a great encounter with Heyman that plants a seed for Knight possibly feuding with The Bloodline and Roman Reigns, but probably a long way down the line. Knight VS Miz Round 2 so soon, and happening on TV, I am pretty sure Miz wins that with shenanigans. Then that gives us a reason for round 3, probably at Fastlane.

Nice highlights from Superstar Spectacle, which ends up with a downgrade from the original for me because it ends up just a very nice house show for India and not a show uploaded to Peacock. But great stuff from the Women’s Championship story. They had a great opening tag match with Asuka costing DMG CTRL, so great momentum for Charlotte and Shotzi. And Asuka VS Iyo for the title in a couple weeks is awesome stuff. But much like Knight VS Miz, this being on TV probably means Iyo wins through shenanigans. I hope Iyo still gets a Fastlane title match, she was left off Payback so she should get another match on the Premium Live Event. And honestly, that could be when Bianca returns to get revenge for DMG CTRL taking her out of action.

My Score: 8.7/10

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 6.13.2024

The ultimate Go Home! We are one day away from Against All Odds and The System goes to the Hardy Compound for a face off!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow night, so we see how this Go Home show is structured to get there. We also get a Hardy Compound segment in TNA for the first time in what…6 years? I’m not fact checking time frames, just been a long damn time.

A few matches to set the table for the TNA+ Event and looks like about 3 Knockouts matches. So fans of women’s wrestling should enjoy this episode.

Ratings:

  • Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana: Santana wins via Spin the Block – ***
  • Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay: Marti wins via Roll-Up – **
  • Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson: Dani wins via Luna Landing – ** 1/2
  • ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone: ASH wins via Rarefied Air – **
  • The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth): Nemeths win via Maverick – *** 1/4

 

Results:

Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana

Santana comes out second and immediately double legs Wentz as soon as he hits the ring, bullies him a little and then starts chasing Trey around so Wentz can recover and land a Moonsault on Santana. Codebreaker into a Running Shooting Star for a near fall from Wentz. Wentz slowly things down with the headlock, even though he’s the quicker guy, so that doesn’t make sense. Santana fires back a little but WEntz counters and starts choking him on the ropes. Referee backs him off so Trey gets involved. Wentz with some attempted control moves, standing switches from both leads to both heading to the ropes, Santana shakes off Wentz and hits the Rolling Buck Fifty! Dive takes out both Rascalz after Wentz powders, bullying in the corner, Wentz tries to pop out but Santana catches him in a fluid pop Death Valley Driver and near fall.

Wentz manages to duck the Spin the Block, counter the next move and connect on his strike combo. Swanton Bomb from Wentz, but only 2! Superkick from Wentz, attempted UFO Cutter, but it turns into trading Push Kicks, Enzuigiris and then a Jumping DDT from Wentz! Wentz feigns injury, Trey tries to interfere but Maclin makes the save. Wentz goes for his Back Handspring Jumping Knee but Santana times the Spin the Block perfectly. Levels Wentz and picks up the win!

Tom has an interview with Mustafa Ali and it just cements his delusional politician thing. Not really a ton beyond Ali is ignoring facts and continuing his schtick.

Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay

Ahh yelling at each other in Spanish and Russian, so no one understand the other and Masha grabs Marti’s head and pulls her down. They start a little chain wrestling with Arm Wringers and World of Sport counters. Bad Drop Toe Hold because Marti slowed down too much and it made the move look fake as hell. But at least the next few moves from both connect a little harder, Marti distracts the ref and Allysin makes her presence felt.

Running Forearm drops Masha in the corner, Hip attack from Marti gives her a near fall. Masha retreats to the corner, Marti tries to go back to the well but Masha has great counters. Slips through her legs, Up Kick, Yakuza Kick, Waterwheel Kick, all beautiful strikes for a near fall. Marti tries to use the ropes in a dirty Roll-Up but the referee sees it, Allysin jumps up, Masha attacks her and then another Roll-Up from Marti with Allysin assisting from the outside for the win.

Why is Xia so perfect in this adorable supportive friend character? I really hate enjoying this wrinkle from Xia…god dammit.

PCO saw AJ Francis take the rose from SDL, so he jumps them during their interview with Gia. PCO just wants the rose back, very Young Frankenstein vibes, and I’m not mad at this so far. 

Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson

Collar and Elbow tie up that goes from corner to corner and Tasha leans into the ropes for the break. Rope run, Tasha Leap Frogs Dani and then connects with a Sole Butt. Tasha tries to go for something in the corner, but Dani just throws her halfway across the ring and connects with a Sliding Lariat Ishii style. Tasha connects on a kick, takes entirely too long showboating and Dani counters into a Falcon Arrow for 2.

Dani misses in the corner, Tasha tries to follow up but eats a forearm and retreats to the apron. Dani tries to Suplex her outside in, but Tasha counters, uses the ropes to her advantage and Dani eats a PK to the face. Near fall gets followed up by a Headbutt from Tasha, then she chokes Dani on the ropes, Dani tries to fight back but another Headbutt drops Dani. Dani tries to fight back again, but eats a Codebreaker from Tasha for yet another near fall. Forward rolling Snapmare into PK but Dani grabs her leg and goes for a flash Roll-Up only for 2. Forearm strike exchange, Tasha gets the best of things with a Knee Lift, tries to hit the ropes but Dani lays in a few Lariats and then…I don’t know. Both go for a Single Leg Dropkick and its just…ugly. Dumb spot and the stutter steps telegraphed a goofball spot.

Dani is the first one back up, a few quick strikes and another Single Leg Dropkick gives Dani the advantage but Tasha blocks the follow up, tries a Cradle, but no dice. Powerbomb from Dani for 2. Luna Landing attempt, but the eye rake into the Rope Assisted Bulldog, but Dani counters, Tasha hits the Shiranui, only for 2. Tasha tries the Rings of Saturn, but Dani gets her foot on the ropes. Tasha with chops and headbutt combos, but Dani hits the Rebound Blue Thunder Bomb for a two! Dani tries to psyche up, Luna Landing gets turned into a Frankensteiner from Tasha, but Dani blocks, then blocks the Okurrr, transitions it into the Luna Landing and Dani wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801418226976358888

Frankie makes a Megadeth reference now with Kill the King. So I’m not angry now, or angry again.

The Hardy Compound thing…I have no words for it. It was definitely goofier than the previous TNA ones (which is saying something when Rockstar Spud lost a match to a child), but it was kinda fun. 

ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone

ASH goes back to the kiss the hand aspect of her persona, then stomps into the enhancement talent. Rosemary lurking in the shadows and just watching the match is odd, but ASH is back to getting her character over. ASH gets cocky, eats a quick Dropkick, ASH powders, complains to the Concierge, but when Jada dives…ASH catches her nicely with the Forearm to the face. Two near falls, and then ASH just unloads in frustration.

Cartwheel Back Elbow from ASH, Jada cuts off the next move, tries to string together some offense but ASH say nope. A little struggle, Jada connects on a kick to the face, Moonsault, but ASH gets the knees up, Lariat into Rarefied Air, and ASH wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801426643694616707

The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth)

Bey starts, its a very respectful double Babyface team style of start. Some counter wrestling, then Bey asks for Nic to tag in, and some playing jawing, but nothing seems to be crossing lines. And no offense is really worth discussing, just basic stuff, playful taunts and giving each other space to tag out. When Ace tags in, he’s a bit more business minded, doesn’t toy with taunts and just rolls under a Lariat, kicks the back of the knees, takes Nic down, throws an Arm Wringer into a Hammerlock and tries to stay on top of Nic. Nic with a desperation spin out into the Release Northern Lights counter. Ace tags out, Bey Double Stomps Nic’s back and keep him isolated. Nic tries to fight back a few times but Bey cuts off the comeback, Nic even just tries to scuttle past Bey, but can’t get to Ryan in time.

Headlock Suplex from Ace after Bey tags him in, to continue the isolation. Coordinated tagging in and out from the ABC, keeps Nic completely isolated. When they comeback from the commercial is probably when Nic will make the comeback and tag out. But those 3 minutes…rough isolation days. Rebound Tandem Overhead Arm Drag, into a Double PK from ABC. Nic is connecting with a few Rabbit Punches, but a Dropkick from Bey stifles the attempt at momentum. Bey tags out to Ace, kick to the ribs into a High Angle Backdrop, and then a Headscissors Chokehold. Nic slowly turns through the Headscissors, gets back to his feet, but gets shoved into the ABC corner. Jumping Snap Kick from Ace, into the jump off teammate Flying Uppercut attack. Bey shoves Nic back into the corner, goes for another attack but crashes and burns, a small struggle to stop Nic, but Nic gets free and Ryan with the hot tag.

Flying Shoulder Tackle into a Rude Awakening for 2 on Bey! Nic tags himself back in, tries a Cutter, blocked, Back Slide, but no, Fame ASSER for 2! Arm Wringer control for the Nemeth side now, tags back in Ryan for some Dosie Doe Wringers into a Double Clothesline. Rope runs, both miss and then Double Lariat stereo tags spot. Ace has early control of the stereo tag, Russian Leg Sweep into Click Click Boom. Ryan tries to run interreference but eats a Leaping Bulldog. Nic tries something and then eats a Triangle Kick from Ace for 2! Nic eats a Double Knee to the face, then the Spike Brainbuster, but Ryan breaks up the pinfall! Jumping DDT on Ace, Cutter from Bey on Ryan and then Nic comes to long enough to hit a Superkick as everyone lays on the mat.

Superkick is blocked by Ace, Roll-Up, no, Face Stomp, near fall and Ace keeps searching for how to win. Tags in Bey, 1-2-Sweet, but Ryan picks Ace’s foot from outside. Ace tries a Plancha on Ryan, but Ryan just slides in the ring to avoid the attack. Ryan lands a Jumping Flatliner and Nic with Danger Zone for the win!

 

Overall Score: 5/10

I mean, for all intents and purposes this show did kind of what it was supposed to. It got across some stories, it set things up for tomorrow,  but the show was paced a little slow. The some spots were clunky, some matches felt necessary but unwanted…and the Hardy Compound thing was…interesting. It really depends on your tolerance for campy and silly. This one was more Scooby Doo than the previous ones, Eddie turned into a legit Werewolf, Reby beheaded Alisha, Myers got laid out by a skeleton and Maxell and Broken Matt allowed Moose to regain the power of 69. If you go in expecting references and fun, this was good. If you go in expecting some kind of twisted mystical puzzlebox…you’re gonna have a bad time.

The main event was a pretty damn good TV main event though. Things are set up a little awkwardly for the PPV, but I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out. Also curious if Tatum Paxley is gonna answer Jordynne’s open challenge or if they go a different route.

Athena’s Minion is still stacking up wins while stacking up bodies, but now she runs into the Subspace Sweetheart, who was also part of that Women’s World TV title tournament. Will Moone find a way to eclipse the Star(kz)? Or will Billie make her Overlord proud by going 11-0?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans rally. The two approach, Billie dodges the haymaker to BOOT Moone! Billie grins, whips Moone to a corner, then runs in. Moone dodges, says eat her space dust, and she CROSSBODIES in the corner! Moone goes to the apron, runs Billie side to side to bum her off buckles, then hurries back in.

Billie storms back after Moone, whips corner to corner, but Moone stops herself! Moone ELBOWS Billie down, then hurries up on her.

Winner: Billie Starkz, by submission (denies Sandra Moone a title opportunity)

Moone put up a fight but Starkz still shines as she checks another one off the list. But will Billie be in for a fight when ROH goes to Arlington, Texas for Death Before Dishonor?

 

Shane Taylor & Lee Moriarty VS Nick Comoroto & Jacoby Watts!

Shane Taylor Promotions plans to tear through anyone and everyone in their way to the top of both ROH and AEW. Will they do just that here tonight? Or will HE, Jacoby, finally lead the Wrecking Ball to a victory?

Comoroto starts for his team, as he has before, and offers a handshake for the Code of Honor. Lee Moriarty starts and just gets in Comoroto’s face. Comoroto does his best to smile and shrug that off, and the two circle. They feel things out, but Lee KICKS a leg. Comoroto shrugs that off, too, and the two circle more. Fans chant “S, T, P! S, T, P!” Lee KICKS, applauds, and dares Comoroto to take a swing. Comoroto does, Lee avoids it, but then Comoroto blocks a kick! So Lee KNEES free! Lee fires up, runs, and forearms Comoroto, but Comoroto HEADBUTTS Lee down! Comoroto applauds and the fans join in.

Comoroto trophy lifts Lee, does some quick pumps, then SLAMS Lee down! Tag to Jacoby and this is the first time we’ve seen him do anything in weeks! Jacoby FLAPJACKS Lee off the apron, but then asks for a microphone? Jacoby says, “My friends, my followers, my faithful flock right here in Las Vegas, Nevada, praise be to HE! And HE is ME.” The fans boo instead. Jacoby goes back to Lee, puts him in, and tags Comoroto. Wow, that was all? Comoroto wrenches Lee, Lee kicks free, and he tags in Shane! The fans fire up for Big Bad Shaney T. Boy, and he steps to Comoroto. Shane SLAPS Comoroto!

Fans chant “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” as Shane eggs Comoroto on. Comoroto shoves Shane, Shane shoves back, and they RAM shoulders!

Comoroto is still in this but Shane tags Lee. Lee runs to BOOT Jacoby, but that upsets Comrooto! Comoroto CLOBBERS Lee, BLASTS Shane, then scoops Lee!

Comoroto spins and SLAMS Lee, runs up and JUMP ELBOW DROPS! The fans fire up with Comoroto, and he says “Save us, Jacoby~!” Comoroto runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then Jacoby tags in! POWERSLAM, Jacoby takes the pin, TWO!! Lee survives because Jacoby took too long, and now Jacoby tags Comoroto back in. Lee runs up to SHOTGUN Jacoby! Comoroto is mad again, and he scoops Lee. Lee slips free, tags Shane, and then baits Comoroto in! BUCKLE SHOT! Shane waits on Comoroto to get up, and then KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

Lee takes Jacoby’s cowboy hat to do a dance, then throws it away. Will ROH soon belong to STP from top to bottom?

 

Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie speak.

La Wera Loca says over the course of the last year and a half, yes, she has had wins and losses, faced some of the best women in the world, and has nothing but respect for each and every one. But one is just… getting under her skin! Queen Aminata~! Queen? So she gave herself a crown? You can’t do that! Aminata’s not a real queen! Taya earned the iconic title of Reina De Reinas (Queen of Queens), earned the nickname “Ratings Queen,” and earned the nickname, “The Main Character.” Aminata is a fraud! And quite annoying. So it doesn’t matter that Aminata beat Taya in the tournament, this is a warning.

Taya will wipe that smug smile off Aminata’s face, and kick that ass off her throne! Watch your back. Johnny says nice one. Mr. & Mrs. TV are ready, but will Aminata just have to beat Taya again?

 

Trios Four Corner Survival: Lance Archer & The Righteous VS Action Andretti & Top Flight VS The Dark Order VS Dalton Castle & The Infantry!

Well, they’re in Las Vegas, so ROH sees last week’s Trios Triple Threat and raises it another trio! It’s a Dirty Dozen in Sin City, but who will hit the jackpot on these 25% odds?

The Peacock argues with the Murderhawk Monster, but then steps down as the teams sort out. In this kind of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at one time, and it is The Sight to See that starts against Alex Reynolds. The Code of Honor is upheld, but then Alex trips Action at the bell! Things speed up, Action hurdles but Alex leaps over! Things keep moving, Action bypasses, and he handsprings through Alex’s hip toss! Action snapmares Alex, then slides, but Alex ducks the Penalty Kick to roll Action up! ONE, and Action arm-drags Alex! Then JAPANESE ARM-DRAGS, then DROPKICKS! The fans cheer, and Action wrenches Alex’s arm.

Action brings Alex over, tags in Darius, and Darius takes the handoff to wrench. Darius whips, Alex reverses, but Darius turns arm-drag into backslide, ONE! Alex runs up, into the arm-drag! Darius has the armlock, then he wrenches. Tag to Dante, he CLUBS an arm and snapmares Alex down, for Darius to basement dropkick the arm! The fans cheer, Dante covers, ONE! Dante keeps on the arm, tags Action, and Action takes the handoff to snapmare, then ghost pin! TWO, but Action whips. Alex reverses, Action ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Alex ELBOWS Action down! The fans cheer, and Alex bumps Action off buckles to tag Silver.

Silver tags Uno, the fans cheer and Dark Order whips Uno in to SPLASH Action! Uno then feeds Action to a double hip toss, cradle and DOUBLE FACEBUSTER! Alex & Uno get Action up, then Silver hops on! The Dark Order flexes while holding Action down, and then Silver & Reynolds step away for Uno to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Uno keeps on Action, ROCKS him with a right, then whips him to ropes.

Uno shoves again, Bravo gets around again, full nelson and spin, but Uno shouts “STOP~!” Then he ROCKS Bravo with a right! The fans fire up, Uno whips, but Bravo jukes and dodges, mule kick to the leg! Tag to Captain Shawn Dean and he STEP-IN KNEE STRIKES Uno down! Reynolds runs up, The Infantry dodges and Castle is in, to get around and SLAM him! The fans fire up as The Infantry and Castle pose together. But then Archer & The Righteous attack! The ref reprimands but they knock down The Infantry as well as Castle, and even the rest of The Dark Order! Vincent feeds Uno to Dutch for the SCRAPBUSTER!

Top Flight storms in but Archer BOOTS Darius, SLAMS Dante, then sends Darius to the SCRAPBUSTER! Action runs up but into a SIDEWALK SLAM! Archer hauls Bravo up into a dragon sleeper but Dean CLUBS him! Archer just frowns, and then he grabs Dean by the neck! CHOKE SLAM DDT COMBO! The fans fire up, and Vinnie snaps his fingers. SLIDING FLATLINER on Uno! Vinnie tags himself in off Uno, then runs up on Dean. Dean fires body shots and forearms, then whips. Vinnie reverses, both men run, and Vinnie CLOBBERS Dean! Vinnie drags Dean up and over, bumps him off buckles and fires body shots!

Tag to Dutch and Dutch UPPERCUTS Dean! Castle protests but Archer smothers Dean! Dutch smiles and snaps his suspenders, before running in, into a BOOT! Dean ELBOWS Vinnie, ELBOWS Archer, dodges Dutch, hot tag to Castle! The fans fire up for The Peacock as he blocks a shot and BACK ELBOWS Dutch! Castle catches Alex to EXPLODER! Castle BLASTS Archer off the apron, catches Dante, and hits an EXPLODER! Darius runs up, into an EXPLODER! Silver runs up, into an EXPLODER! Action runs in, EXPLODER! Vegas is fired up for Castle, Dutch runs up, but into a waistlock. Dutch elbows free, Castle falls back to the corner.

Dutch runs in, Castle dodges, and The Infantry DOUBLE GAMANGIRI! Dutch staggers, Castle BODY SHOTS! Bravo runs up to SCISSOR KICK! Dean is up top, DIVING SPLASH! Castle runs up, builds up power, and then SPLASHES down! Triple cover, but Dante and Alex break it! Dante hurries to his corner, tags in off Dutch, but Alex does the same with Castle. Alex and Dante shove each other, then throw forearms! Darius and Uno get in but they each get a forearm! Then Dante and Alex throw hands again! Silver and Action try, but Dante and Alex DECK them! The brawl is back on, Archer and Dutch get in!

Alex and Dante each hit Archer and Dutch, but they’re much bigger than the others! Archer choke grips Alex, Dutch choke grips Dante! But Uno & Action DOUBLE SUPERKICK Dutch! They DUMP Archer out, but Archer grabs Uno! Action SUPERKICKS Archer down! The Righteous regroups outside, some of the others head that way, and Alex swings on Action. Action dodges, SOBATS, then reels Alex in. Action suplexes, Alex slips free, and Alex waistlocks. Action drops down, slips under, mule kicks then front kicks! Alex ducks the roundhouse but not the ENZIGIRI! But then Silver SUPERKICKS Action!

Silver torture racks and spins, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Dean gets Silver for a full nelson, then ROLLING ELBOW! Darius runs up, blocks a kick and hits a FISHERMAN BUSTER! Castle returns to short arm LARIAT, KNEE and DDT! Darius bails out, Vinnie gets in, SIDE EFFECT! Bravo gets Vinnie in a wrench and clinch, SIDEWINDER! Uno runs up, blocks a boot, and he hands that to the ref so he can NECKBREAKER! The fans are thunderous, Dante gets in, and he hurdles Uno! Uno ends up outside, The Righteous mugs him!

Silver & Reynolds coordinate, they’re starting up that WOMBO COMBO!! Bridging cover, but Darius COMPLETE SHOTS Alex! Action breaks the pin, then he and Darius get Alex up! DOUBLE URENAGE! Darius covers, TOP FLIGHT WINS!

Winners: Action Andretti & Top Flight, by pinfall

It was fast ‘n’ furious between all four teams, and the fastest team won out! Will Action, Darius & Dante make good on some golden tickets to Arlington?

 

Six Woman Tag: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante VS Abadon, Lady Frost & Leyla Hirsch!

The Problem is already hard to solve, and now she’s got British Titanium and the Cuban Diamond by her side! Will this trio be unbreakable? Or will they have some trouble with the LEGIT trio standing against them?

The Code of Honor is upheld, though barely, and the trios sort out. Leyla starts against Marina and the fans rally up. The two circle, tie up, and Leyla waistlocks to drag Marina down. Marina fights up, Leyla has a leg, but Marina’s sturdy, so Leyla lets off. They reset, knuckle lock, and Marina slips around to trip Leyla. Marina ties the legs up, floats to a headlock, but Leyla slips out the back to a waistlock. They go around, Leyla is a backpack as Marina stands up. Marina leans forward to dump Leyla off, but Leyla holds on to drag Marina down into body scissors! Marina fights free and the fans cheer the technical exchange.

The two reset and go again. Marina trips Leyla to a cover, ONE! Leyla goes to sweep but Marina jumps over! Marina pats little Leyla on the head, but that pisses Leyla off! Leyla trips Marina, rains down forearms, then she gets around to facelock. Leyla brings Marina over, Abadon tags in, and the fans fire up as the two double whip. Drop toehold then SENTON! Abadon hurries to cover, TWO! Abadon keeps Marina from her team and rains down fists! Marina gets free, goes for a leg but Abadon slips away. Abadon goes for an arm, wrenches and wristlocks, but Marina rolls. Abadon wrangles her, Marina fights up and rolls to her feet.

Abadon wrangles Marina again, using power to get the better of the technician. And then Abadon BITES Marina’s arm! The ref reprimands and Marina breaks free! Thankfully Marina’s gear has sleeves. Abadon backs off and Frost tags in. Marina tags Diamante, and these two run up. Frost wheelbarrows to arm-drag, then dodges Diamante to handspring and RANA! Diamante ends up in the corner,. Frost tags Abadon then CHOPS Diamante. Abadon throws hands, brings Diamante around, and ROCKS her with forearm after forearm! Diamante kicks low but Abadon HELL STABS! Abadon whips, Diamante reverses, and Marina gets a cheap shot in!

Abadon shrieks at Marina, but Diamante CLUBS Abadon down! Diamante stomps a mudhole into Abadon, lets off as the ref counts, and then tags Windsor. Windsor fires off hands on Abadon, then brings her around to bump Abadon off buckles. Windsor whips corner to corner, runs up, but into a BOOT! Windsor just huffs ‘n’ puffs and comes back! Windsor blocks boots, puts Abadon in ropes, and DRAPING NECKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Windsor CLUBS Abadon again and again, then drags her up. Tag to Marina, then snapmare for Abadon. Marina uses Windsor as a weapon, scoop SLAM on the legs!

Abadon writhes, Windsor throws down hands and Marina sucker punches Leyla! The ref keeps Leyla back, letting Windsor and Diamante stomp Abadon! Then Windsor uses Diamante as a weapon, HIP TOSS SENTON! Diamante hurries away before the ref sees, and Windsor tags Marina. Marina tags Diamante, they drag Abadon, and then Marina uses Diamante as a weapon, scoop SLAM on Abadon’s chest! Diamante eggs Leyla & Frost on, but Abadon sits up like a certain Deadman! Abadon checks her neck, dodges Diamante, then tags Frost! Frost fires up as she rallies on Daimante! ELBOW, then a tilt-o-whirl into the sunset flip! ONE, but Frost BUZZSAWS!

The fans fire up with Frost and she runs to the corner. GAMANGIRI! Diamante sits down, Frost goes corner to corner, handspring CANNONBALL! The fans fire up again and Frost covers, TWO! Diamante stays in this but Frost stays on her with a wrench. Tag to Leyla and Frost snapmares Diamante. Diamante ducks the buzzsaw, but not the HEEL KICK! Leyla then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, Windsor & Marina break it! Frost ROUNDHOUSES Marina! Frost goes out but Marina SWEEPS the legs! Windsor tags in, Leyla DECKS Marina, but then sees Windsor waiting! Leyla takes a swing, but into the RIGHT ANGLE SLAM!

Windsor hurries to cover, but Abadon breaks it! Diamante SPEARS Abadon! Windsor hauls Leyla up, but Leyla wrenches to SAIDO! Leyla puts Windsor in the drop zone, then goes up, but Diamante distracts the ref so Marina can YANK Leyla down! SHINING WINDSOR! And then the fisherman and a twist, LIBERTINE DRIVER! Cover, Windsor’s team wins!

Winners: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante, by pinfall

Powerful teamwork from this trio, and we know Windsor gets a big match tomorrow night on AEW Rampage against Toni Storm. Will Iron Will Windsor steal the spotlight from the Leading Lady this close to Forbidden Door? Will all three of these women be primed for title opportunities as we head for Death Before Dishonor and beyond?

 

ROH World Tag Team Championships Proving Grounds: The Kingdom VS Bad Dude Tito & Che Cabrera!

Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are the only ones in the Undisputed Kingdom still holding gold, and they’ve gotta put in the work to prove they’re still worthy. Will they make sure ROH stays their kingdom? Or will the #WolfZaddies be howling to the moon as they take a bite out of the champs?

The teams sort out, Mike starts against Tito and the Code of Honor is kept. The bell rings, we’re on the clock, and Tito is all fired up. They tie up, Mike headlocks, but Tito squeezes tight before he powers out. Mike RAMS Tito, Tito asks if that’s all he’s got. Mike ROCKS Tito and headlocks him! Tito powers up to lift Mike, then powers out of the headlock. They RAM shoulders again, and Mike says okay. Try this! CHOP! Tito CHOPS back! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP, and the fans “WOO~!” with each one! Tito CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, then he CHOPS Mike down! The fans fire up, Tito runs, but Mike dropkicks the leg out!

Tag to Taven, he runs to CLOBBER Tito! Taven tells Vegas to shut up, then he CHOPS Tito to a corner. Taven whips, Tito reverses, and he catches Taven as he goes up! Taven fights free, but Tito dodges to CHOP! Tag to Che, and the Zaddies double whip to DOUBLE FLAPJACK! That had some sauce on it! Che covers, TWO! Che keeps cool, brings Taven up, but Taven puts Che in the corner. Taven CHOPS, but Che doesn’t flinch. Taven apologizes, but he kicks low. Taven whips, Che goes up and over, and he keeps moving to then FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Cover, TWO! Taven crawls to ropes, Che storms up, and Che brings Taven up.

Che whips, Taven holds ropes to stop himself, but Che runs in. Mike tags in before Taven DUMPS Che out, then Mike swings on Che! Che gets under, Mike comes back, but into a FLAPJACK to the floor! But Taven WRECKS Che with a dropkick! The fans cheer and Taven helps Mike into the ring. Taven tags back in, and he puts Che in the ring. Che goes to the corner, Taven runs in, but Che dodges the splash! Che grabs at Taven, Taven holds ropes, and the ref counts. Che lets off but Taven sucker punches him! Tag to Bennett, the Kingdom double whips Che to ropes. Taven hurdles, Mike ROCKS Che, then Taven hits the KICK OF THE KING! Mike covers, TWO!

The fans fire up while Mike grows frustrated. Mike drags Che up, puts him in a corner, then CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS! Repeat! Mike then mule kicks Che, snapmares, and basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Che stays in this but Mike drags him back up. Tag to Taven, The Kingdom double whips to a corner. Che bounces off buckles, Taven whips again but Che reverses hard! Taven hits buckles and falls, and the fans rally up! Che and Taven crawl, but Mike tags in first! Mike gets Che up, Che hops and LARIATS Mike down! Che crawls, the fans fire up, hot tag to Tito! The Bad Dude dodges Mike to UPPERCUT Taven in the corner!

Tito fires off forearms and CHOPS on Taven, but Mike runs up! Tito ROCKS Mike! Taven swings, Tito wrenches to a SPINEBUSTER! Mike swings, but into a BLUE THUNDER onto Taven! Tito covers Mike, TWO!! Mike survives but Tito hauls him back up. Fireman’s carry, but Mike fires elbows! Tito ELBOWS Mike back, then wrenches to a SKY HIGH! Cover, Taven breaks it! Che gets in and he TOSSES Taven out! Tito brings the straps down, Che goes up! Electric Chair Lift, but Taven SHOVES Che to the apron!! Mike slips free, fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER, and JUST THE TIP of the knee!

Taven goes up, Mike reels Tito in, HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall (denies the Wolf Zaddies a title opportunity)

Taven says this belt is his girl, he makes love to it every night! No one takes Taven’s girl from him! Mike says it doesn’t matter who you put against them, The Kingdom IS the best tag team in the world! But will there come a time when a tag team does come along and takes these titles away from them? Or will these titles always be undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here with it clocking in at an hour and 11 minutes. Surprisingly little on the promo side, with just Taya calling out Aminata for a match. Taya will definitely lose to build Aminata up towards her title match with Athena, which probably happens at Death Before Dishonor. Billie and Velvet each have momentum going into their inevitable TV title match, and it was great to see Moone back after her tournament appearance. And good Six Woman Tag, real good teamwork from the Heels in getting the win. Also, didn’t realize until double checking on Windsor’s finisher name, she is Will Ospreay’s wife, the “missus” he refers to so often.

Good tag match from Shane Taylor Promotions VS Comoroto & Watts, and of course STP won out. The whole story of Comoroto & Watts is their dysfunction because Watts puts himself above everything. But I do like that Watts is getting more and more involved as the weeks go by, so maybe at some point, Watts actually does do something meaningful in a match. Maybe. I’m a bit surprised Adora lost to Harley but I suppose Harley’s been losing plenty on AEW, she has to get something at some point.

Great stuff in the Trios Fatal 4. Castle joining up with The Infantry was certainly fun, but I was a little surprised Action & Top Flight won. This does help them keep pace with Shane Taylor Promotions as that rivalry gets going via AEW, but I thought Dark Order was gonna be the ones to get going again. Well, there’s still time before Death Before Dishonor, so they can hold many other matches to determine #1 contenders. And while The Wolf Zaddies got a good showing against The Kingdom, of course The Kingdom won the Proving Grounds match. The story, slow moving as it is, will of course be Menard & Parker getting their shot, probably at Death Before Dishonor, and there’s still a good chance The Kingdom retains. Depends on if TK cares about The Undisputed Kingdom’s story where Adam Cole wants Wardlow to protect all their titles. Feels like that moment passed, to be honest.

My Score: 8.6/10
