PLAY BY PLAY

Becky Lynch is here!

Fans fire up as she is still NXT Women’s Champion! And she gets the mic to say, “The Man has come around to N BEX T!” Fans echo that and Becky says she is still N BEX T Women’s Champion! “But, but, but, after a brutal Extreme Rules match at No Mercy, The Man is not medically cleared to compete. But but but I made sure Tiffany Stratton wasn’t either, because we beat the ever lovin’ piss outta each other!” And Becky wouldn’t have it any other way. She wants to give her all every time she defends the title, and expects the same form her opponent, and Tiff did just that.

But Becky did tell us all that when she won this title, she wants to elevate this title to heights it has never seen before. She wants to defend it everywhere she goes, and she’s looking ahead on the calendar. The next big ticket is Halloween Havoc! She has a roadblock ahead of her with Tegan Nox on Raw, but she’s just wondering- Wait! Lyra Valkyria is here! She doesn’t want to interrupt, but she just never had the chance to tell Becky this. June 26th, 2014, Becky’s NXT debut, was the first episode of NXT Lyra ever saw. And she saw an Irish girl in this ring, and Lyra started training that very week.

Becky’s debut actually kick-started Lyra’s career. And so Lyra says the whole world knows Becky is The Man, but does she realize what she’s done for everyone back home? For Irish wrestling? For Lyra herself? Lyra will never forget to be at the biggest Irish wrestling show ever, and before the show even started, they had big ads on screen. A flash of Becky’s face showed up, and a ripple of a roar went across the entire crowd. Does she understand how inspiring that was for someone like Lyra? Fans cheer as Lyra says she was always able to push that bit harder because Becky was here making the impossible seem possible!

Becky from up the road was the first woman to main event WrestleMania! Fans cheer that, too! And all these years later, Lyra’s career finally came full circle when she stood side by side with Becky in the main event of NXT. But as good as standing side by side felt, she’d be lying if she wasn’t wondering how it’d feel to stand face to face. Fans like the sound of that! Lyra isn’t sure if Becky thinks Lyra is ready, but… Becky says the fans think it! But wait, here comes Indi Hartwell? Indi’s back in NXT and fans fire up again! Indi says Becky’s not the only woman who needed to come back to NXT to prove a point.

And what a speech from Lyra! But nowhere in there did she mentioned how she shocked the world by becoming champion at the biggest Stand & Deliver of all time, only to drop the title after being injured and then drafted away. See, Indi never lost what is on Becky’s shoulder. So if Big Time Becks wants to go Mondays and Tuesdays, so can Indi! Because this will always be home for Indi! These people watched her grow up! She got married right here! And now, she’s back for what she never lost. WAIT! Roxanne Perez makes her way out! She tells “The Man” that she truly IS The Man, and she deserves to be. Becky left NXT to become everything everyone said she wouldn’t.

Roxie won’t come out here and rely on her accolades or accomplishments. But a few weeks ago and Becky told Roxie to rest up. Roxie doesn’t want to! Roxie is here to tell Becky that, while she respects her Manias and SummerSlams, that is why she is here to look her in the face to get her title back! And, she’s taking it back. Becky says okay okay okay okay! They all make excellent points. But uh, they can do a little less talking and a lot more fighting! So how about this? Becky will be on commentary, these three entertain her with a Triple Threat, and the winner will face Becky on night one of Halloween Havoc! Welcome to the Big Time!

Becky throws down the mic and the gauntlet, who wins their golden ticket here tonight?

 

Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne VS Gallus!

The Big Strong Boi backed up the Bruiserweight at No Mercy, but it wasn’t enough because on top of The Meta Four, Wolfgang & the Coffey Brothers had to go and screw them out of the Heritage Cup! Will the former British Strong Style boys get revenge on Wolfie & Markus? Or will it end up being Gallus Boys On Top?

NXT returns as Gallus makes their entrance. The teams sort out, Dunne starts with Mark Coffey, but Joe Coffey gets on the apron! Dunne runs him off but Mark attacks! Fans boo as Mark headlocks and grinds, but Dunne powers up and out. Things speed up, and Dunne hurdles, drops and CLOBBERS Mark! Fans rally, Dunne warns Joe, but then Wolfgang storms up! Dunne ROCKS Wolfgang, GAMANGIRIS Mark, shouts at Joe, but Wolfgang clotheslines Dunne back into the ring! Mark UPPERCUTS Dunne down, then RAMS him into the corner! Tag to Wolfgang, they mug Dunne, and Wolfgang throws hands.

Wolfgang stomps Dunne, drops a knee and digs that knee in, but the ref counts. Wolfgang lets off at 4, tags in Mark, and they mug Dunne some more. Mark drags Dunne up, wrenches and whips Dunne hard into the corner, then tags in Wolfgang. Wolfgang digs his boot in more, the ref counts, and Wolfgang lets off. Fans rally but Wolfgang drags Dunne around to a mounted armlock and chinbar. Dunne endures, fans rally, and Dunne fights up to ROCK and CHOP Wolfgang! And CHOP again! Dunne wrenches, bends the fingers, and then isolates that arm, to STOMP it! Fans fire up while Wolfgang writhes, but Dunne wrenches his arm.

Tag to Bate, he and Dunne double wrench, then they get Wolfgang down to trap both arms! DOUBLE ARM STOMPS! Fans fire up while Wolfgang spasms, unable to hold either hand! Bate then fireman’s carries! Wolfgang is too big, he CLUBS Bate and then UPPERCUTS! Wolfgang blocks a boot but not the knee! Bate goes up to FLYING UPPERCUT! Bate tags Dunne, and they DOUBLE DORPKICK Wolfgang out! Mark runs in, but gets double arm wrench, and DOUBLE FINGER SNAPS! Wolfgang runs back in, Double Bop, DOUBLE BANG! Gallus regroups outside while fans fire up, and NXT goes to break.

NXT returns as Mark paces around Bate. Bate rises to fire off hands! Fans fire up but Mark wrangles Bate and throws him into ropes! Tag to Wolfgang while Bate sputters, and then Wolfgang distracts the ref so Joe can sucker punch Bate! Cover, TWO! Bate is tougher than that but Wolfgang clamps onto Bate with a cobra clutch. Fans rally up for Bate and he stands up. Mark tags in, Wolfgang ripcords but Bate back drops Wolfgang away! Mark storms in but Bate ROLLING KICKS him down! Fans fire up as Bate hurries, duck sunder Wolfgang, hot tag to Dunne! ENZIGURI for Wolfgang! ENZIGURI for Mark!

Another ENZIGURI for Wolfgang! Another ENZIGURI for Mark! GAMANGIRI after GAMANGIRI on Mark in the corner, then a snapmare, to a knee drop on the arm! Fans fire up as Dunne SHINING WIZARDS Mark! Mark goes to the apron and Joe coaches him up, but Dunne has him for BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Fans count to TEN, then Dunne speeds up to get to TWENTY! Dunne then CLOBBERS Joe! Fans fire up with Dunne and he gets in the ring. Mark avoids the boot to ENZIGURI in return! Cover, TWO! Dunne is tougher than that, too! But Mark drags Dunne up, only for Dunne to X PLEX!

Tag to Bate and he RUNNING SHOOTING STARS! Wolfgang returns but Bate fireman’s carries! AIRPLANE SPIN!! Fans fire up and count as Bate goes around and around and around, for TEN! Wolfgang wobbles, as does Bate, but Wolfgang falls out of the ring! Dunne goes up the corner, and he ARIHARA MOONSAULTS Wolfgang down! Bate has Mark with underhooks, but Mark back drops free! Bate just hits the REBOUNDER! Tag to Dunne before Bate FLIES to take out Wolfgang! Dunne STOMPS Mark’s hands, BUZZSAWS, and then tags Bate back in. They work together to DOUBLE TIGER BOMB!! Cover, British

Winners: Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne, by pinfall

JOE ATTACKS! The Iron King is a sore loser, and so are his boys! They all beat Bate and Dunne down while fans boo! But wait! Ridge Holland is here! The Brawling Brute CLOBBERS Mark! CLOBBERS Wolfgang! Ridge and Joe brawl, Bate and Dunne DOUBLE DROPKICK Wolfgang and Mark! Ridge then POUNCES Joe out! Will Gallus regret getting on the bad side of these Brawling Brutes?

 

Ilja Dragunov is here!

The fans fire up as the Mad Dragon, the NEW NXT Champion, makes his way to the ring. Fans chant “You Deserve It!” Dragunov gets a mic to then say, “Ladies and gentlemen… Tonight, you can welcome me as the Mad Dragon! You can welcome me as The Czar! You can welcome me as UN-BE-SIEG-BAR! But especially as your NEW NXT CHAMPION!” Fans cheer that! Dragunov says at No Mercy, Melo brought the fight, and what a fight it was. He pushed Dragunov to places beyond his limits again and again and again. So today, Dragunov stands here in front of you, barely even able to stand. But he stands!

Even in pain, he stands in front of us as your champion, because he promised to fulfill his destiny, and to push this title beyond any level of human energy! Dragunov will turn this title reign into a symbol of incomparable passion, and he will protect his promise with his life! #LongLiveTheCzar! Fans cheer that! But then wait, here comes Trick Williams! Fans chant “Whoop Dat Trick!” for the other new champion from No Mercy. Trick appreciates the love, but he wants everyone to hold on. First thing’s first, congrats to Dragunov for winning the title at No Mercy. Much deserved.

But Trick isn’t here because Ilja won his title. He’s here because someone else won a title at No Mercy. He is here as the NEW NXT North American Champion! Fans cheer that! Trick says with all that said, he must thank Dragunov. For what? Well, back at Heatwave, Dragunov pushed Trick to a whole ‘nother level. So this Trick that everyone sees is cuz of Dragunov. Now Trick has gold. And you best believe he is only going up from here. Dragunov wants Trick to stop right there. Dragunov is proud of Trick. At No Mercy, Trick whooped dat trick! Fans cheer as the two secret handshake! But wait, here comes Carmelo Hayes!

Fans cheer on “MEL~O!” as he has a mic to say hold on. Is he slipping or is that just Ilja? What’s up, Trick? Fans chant “MELO MISSED!” Melo says he appreciates the kind words, and he acknowledges that Dragunov fulfilled destiny. But Trick, why you thanking Ilja? Melos’ been telling Trick that he is championship material! Listen, man! MELO is proud of Trick! Trick Melo Gang came up together in front of all these people! Does he remember that? Listen, man. Winning that title is amazing, tha tis one thing. But defending it is a completely different beast. Trick wants Melo to hold on. Is Trick not ready for Dom?

No, that is not what Melo means! Then what did Melo mean? Dragunov says he doesn’t really care, because it isn’t his business. As far as he can tell, this has been a conversation between champions! And if Melo thinks they’re not done, then find Ilja after he figures this out. Trick says don’t do that. Melo, if you want a rematch with Ilja, Trick respects that. But Trick is ready for his rematch- No, Melo is just trying to say that if Trick is trying to follow in his footsteps, then he needs to focus on Dom. Speaking of… Here comes Dirty Dom Mysterio! And he says, “Trick, Trick Trick.” Fans boo as Dom tells Trick to listen to Melo.

Becuase winning the title and keeping it are two completely different things. Especially when Dom is the one coming for ya! Trick wants everyone to hold on. He was at Raw yesterday. Is Dom always taking orders from Mami? Dom says don’t worry about all that. Dirty Dom is all man! See, that right there is Dom’s problem. Dom is always going on about Mami. Mami says this, Mami says that, Mama-say-mama-sa-mama-coosa! Mama says Trick whoops dat ass! Fans chant “WHOOP DAT TRICK!” but Dom says he promised Rhea he was gonna bring home gold to the Judgment Day! No no no no, Dom. Look, it ain’t happening.

Melo tells Trick to watch out. Dom don’t roll alone. If Judgment Day wants to be startin’ something, then Melo’s got Trick’s back! Just like old times, Melo will be in Trick’s corner. But Dom asks Trick something. “Now that you’re a champion, 6’4″, 240, and you’re still in Melo’s shadow?” Trick tells Melo that they dawgs and he appreciates the offer, but he is gonna decline. Because Trick got the title by himself so he’ll defend it by himself. Tonight, he whoops this trick. Will Trick handle his business? Or will he play right into Judgment Day’s hands?

Bron Breakker finds Melo backstage.

Melo is in no mood as Bron asks what’s up. Bron says it is a sucky feeling, huh? No, Trick’s go this. Aw c’mon, cut the crap! Bron’s the only one who knows how Melo feels right now. He knows how it is to lose the NXT Championship on the biggest stage. Yeah, that’s true. Melo lost on Saturday, and they immediately start chanting for Ilja. No more “He is Him.” Now, Bron disagrees there. But Bron can tell it is bothering Melo. The frustration, the rage. So take it from the most dominant NXT Champion of all time: Use that frustration and take it out on everyone! Destroy everyone! Especially Trick Williams.

Melo tells Bron to leave Trick outta this! But Bron chuckles. On Saturday, when Melo lost, where was Trick? Waiting at gorilla to give you a hug and tell you everything was gonna be alright? No? That’s what Bron thought. Melo had to go find Trick cuz Trick was being selfish. See, Bron knew that’s how Melo felt. Just think about what he said. Bron heads out, will everything he just said get to HIM?

 

Ilja gets his side plates put on.

Now it is truly his title. But then Baron Corbin walks in. Hope those aren’t on there too tight. Dragunov asks what he wants, this is a champion’s moment. Corbin says he is just here with a friendly reminder: outside of Melo, Corbin is the only man who has beat Dragunov over the last year. And everyone knows history has a nasty way of repeating itself. Well, after No Mercy, Dragunov is sure that Melo would disagree. Hmm, No Mercy. Yeah, Corbin was there, and he took Bron Breakker down. So as Corbin sees it, no one stands in Corbin’s way for that title. Dragunov strongly disagrees there, too. Well, okay, Mr. Destiny.

But here’s some advice: take the title, go over to the photographer, put that on his shoulder, shine it up real nice, show the brand new name plates off and get as many pics as possible while you still can. Corbin heads out, thinking he can burn Dragunov’s ship. But will the Mad Dragon be the one to burn Corbin to ashes?

 

Gigi Dolin VS Blair Davenport!

This match was supposed to happen last week, but when the lights went out, the Toxic Avenger was on the bad side of another Blair Davenport blindside. But then Gigi went after Blair at No Mercy! So now, this match will happen no matter what! Who will be left standing after getting all the anger out?

Whoa, speaking of, Gigi attacks Blair during her entrance! Gigi eggs Blair on, chases her down, and fires off hands! Fans fire up as Gigi fires off on Blair in the fog and smoke! She RAMS Blair into the barriers! And RAMS her into them again! Gigi stomps Blair, puts her in the ring, and now it’s a match! Gigi whips and ROCKS Blair, then puts Blair in the ropes. Gigi pulls on Blair for a motorcycle stretch! Gigi lets off as the ref counts, and she SHOTGUNS Blair down! Gigi keeps moving to SHOTGUN Blair again! Cover, TWO! Gigi puts Blair in a corner but Blair dodges. Gigi blocks the dropkick to CATAPULT, but Blair goes up!

Blair eggs Gigi on, but Gigi throws an elbow! Blair knees low, snapmares her down and runs, but Gigi avoids the basement dropkick! Gigi CLOBBERS Blair again! They brawl on their knees, forearm for forearm! They both stand and keep throwing shots!

Fans rally as the two stagger around. Blair kicks low, kicks, but Gigi blocks to DRAGON SCREW! Blair goes to ropes, Gigi runs in and clotheslines Blair up and out! Fans fire up, Gigi goes out, but Blair sends her into the desk! Blair grabs a chair from the timekeeper’s area! She swings, but misses as Gigi moves! Gigi ROUNDHOUSES Blair, puts her in the ring, and stalks her. Gigi fires a strike fest, then a LARIAT! And another! Gigi wrenches, and STOs! Then Gigi SWITCHBLADE KICKS! Cover, TWO! Blair hangs tough but Gigi snarls. Gigi goes out to get that chair! Fans say “YES! YES! YES!” but the ref says don’t!

Gigi storms up on Blair, the ref stops her, and Blair sucker punches Gigi! Now Blair has the chair, but the ref plays tug-o-war with her! Gigi rolls Blair up! GIGI WINS!!

Winner: Gigi Dolin, by pinfall

Blair is furious, at the ref! Blair says this isn’t over with her and Gigi! How much worse will this get between Gigi and the Ichiban Gaijin?

 

Backstage interview with Kiana James.

She is in the middle of a phone call as McKenzie Mitchell asks her why she got involved with Roxie. Kiana tells this person it will be worth the money. What will be? Kiana finishes up and asks what the question was. Oh, right, that thing with Roxie. Look, Roxie has been the golden child of NXT since she go there. Ironically, that was the same day Kiana walked in here. You think Kiana was just gonna sit there and let Roxie get another chance to have another title reign? No! So as the Breakout Tournament returns, everyone remembers Roxie winning it. Who else was in that tournament? Kiana!

Everyone loved seeing Roxie be NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion. Y’know who else was a Women’s Tag Team Champion? Kiana! It is now Kiana’s mission that the entire world sees Kiana above Roxie. Well, she made her point tonight, so what is her plan? Kiana doesn’t need to plan, that next part is already done. What? How? Kiana says if Roxie wants a fight with her, all she has to do is get through her opponent next week. And who is that? None other than the Empress of Tomorrow! So we’ll see if “Edgy Roxie” is ready for Asuka. Kiana didn’t like Becky coming back to NXT but she’ll gladly pay someone else to. Will this investment pay off? Or will this all blow up in her face?

 

2023 NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament, Opening Round: Kelani Jordan VS Izzi Dame!

The Gym Princess and Queen of Niles, Michigan start off the returning tournament that helped kickstart the careers of many of this generation’s top names. Will Kelani prove she’s learned from the best? Or will Izzi leave her dizzy and move right on to the second round?

The bell rings and these two circle. Fans rally for Kelani as she and Izzi tie up. Izzi wrenches, wristlocks, and YANKS the arm! And YANKS it again! Kelani fights up, goes up the corner, and Arabian Presses for the wrench! Kelani YANKS, YANKS, but ducks Izzi’s roundhouse! Izzi ELBOWS Kelani away, runs and runs Kelani over! Izzi keeps moving, Kelani hurdles but gets caught! Izzi pops Kelani around but Kelani sunset flips! Izzi stays up and drags Kelani up, to TOSS her to ropes! Kelani ELBOWS Izzi, then slingshots, only for Izzi to throw her into ropes! Izzi YANKS Kelani down, KNEES her down, and covers, TWO!!

And now the tone is set for the tournament! Will Kelani break out and be the next top star in NXT?

 

Andre Chase & Duke Hudson talk backstage.

Duke wants Chase to look at what’s going on with Thea Hail. Chase says he doesn’t wanna see that. No, Duke’s talking about the social media beef between Thea, Jacy, Elektra Lopez and Lola Vice. Elektra saying Thea ain’t grown, but then Jacy claps back, and now there’s a tag match. Wow, speak of the devil! Thea, sorry to interrupt, but uh, could they support her for their match? Like, be ringside? Well sure, it shouldn’t be a problem. Oh they’re gonna be chaperones? N-no that’s not what they were saying! Thea says they’re fine, but then Jacy thinks it’d be nice to have them out there. They can support this new tag team.

Well, whatever Jacy says. Yeah! Chase U on three. All hands in, and one, two, three, CHASE U! Duke says that wasn’t so bad, huh? Chase tells him to shut it. These four head out, but will this all help Professor Chase accept Thea’s new attitude?

 

The mystery man from before sits in front of his TV again.

And this time, he watches a lot of second-generation superstars in action. Charlotte Flair, Brooks Jensen, Jey Uso and the rest of The Bloodline, Randy Orton, Von Wagner, Bron Breakker, even Dominik Mysterio. The TV turns off, and we see the Bengal tiger on his shirt. Is it time this man gets in on the action?

 

Thea Hail & Jacy Jayne w/ Chase U VS Elektra Lopez & Lola Vice!

NXT returns as Thea & Jacy make their entrance, Chase & Duke in their corner. Then La Madrina and her MMA Mamacita make their entrance. Will Thea prove she grown? Or will Lopez & Lola show it takes more than new outfits and attitudes to do that?

The teams sort out and Lopez starts against Thea. They tie up and Thea headlocks to thrash around! Lopez powers out, Thea ducks ‘n’ dodges and turns scoop into headlock takeover! Fans fire up but Lopez headscissors. Thea kips free, arm-drags Lopez around, but Lopez blocks one! Lopez scoops to SLAM Thea, then CLUBS away on her! Lopez throws Thea down to drop a BIG elbow!

But Lola hurries to stomp her down before the tag! Then she sucker punches Jacy! Thea throws hands on Lola, but the ref has to stop an angry Jacy from getting in!

Winners: Thea Hail & Jacy Jayne, by submission

Chase is actually impressed! These two made an impressive combination, will this grown attitude help Thea get back to a title opportunity?

 

NXT Media catches up with Melo.

He’s on his way out and they ask if he’s upset he’s no longer NXT Champion. Yeah, duh, it sucks. And his boy just said he doesn’t need Melo’s help. What do they want? Is Melo gonna take Bron’s advice? Absolutely not! In fact, Melo is having a match with Bron. Melo got some real advice from someone else. It wasn’t what he wanted to hear, but it is what he needed to hear. That man was JOHN CENA. The Greatest of All Time! 16 TIME WORLD CHAMP! And y’know what that means? It means Cena had to get off the mat 15 times and keep moving forward, and that is what he told Melo to do.

And Cena also told Melo to have this match with Bron, because Cena’s gonna have Melo’s back! Cena’s gonna be in Melo’s corner! So see you next week.

 

BREAKING NEWS!

Also coming to NXT for the first time is the AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, CODY RHODES! He’s going to make a major announcement, just what could it be to warrant him coming here?

 

NXT North American Championship: Trick Williams VS Dominik Mysterio w/ The Judgment Day!

Speaking of Melo’s boy, Trick is set to defend his title in a rematch from No Mercy. And with Rhea Ripley here in person to accompany Dirty Dom, will Trick have to be extra careful? Or will he still whoop dat ass and send Dom back to Raw once and for all?

NXT returns as Trick makes his entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Trick survives Judgment Day!

The bell rings and Dom fires off on Trick! Fans boo as Dom stomps Trick around, throws hands, and has Trick on ropes. Dom ROCKS Trick, Trick staggers around, and Dom whips. Trick whips Dom to then dodge and run Dom over! Fans fire up as Trick DROPKICKS Dom! Trick scoops, Dom slips fee, but Trick dodges to pop-up HAYMAKER! Rhea is furious but the fans fire up! “WHOOP DAT TRICK!” Dom regroups with Rhea and she reminds him of the deal as NXT goes picture in picture.

Dom catches his breath, but Trick draws a line in the sand. Dom paces, slides in, but then slides out. Trick stays patient, he has Champion’s Advantage now. Dom paces as the ring count restarts, but then Trick rushes out after him. They cat ‘n’ mouse around and Dom slips away again. Trick keeps pursuing Dom, and even counter punches the sucker punch! But Dom throws a body shot! Dom aims for the desk but Trick blocks to SMACK Dom off the desk! Trick keeps after Dom with a CHOP against barriers! Dom sputters and hurries away but Trick gets in the ring. Trick eggs Dom on, goes out after him again, and puts Dom in the ring.

Trick fires off hands on Dom in the corner, CHOPS him again, then brings Dom around to whip and CLOBBER him! Cover, TWO! Trick clamps onto Dom with a chinlock and grinds him down. Rhea is upset as she coaches Dom but Trick grinds Dom down. Dom endures, fights around, but Trick thrashes Dom! Dom fights up to his feet, throws elbows, but Trick throws a body shot. Trick hits a headlock takeover, and NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally hard behind Trick as he grinds Dom, determined to pull his head off! Dom endures, fights up again, but then Finn Balor & Damian Priest show up! This distraction allows Dom to back suplex!

Both men are down but fans boo as The Prince and Punisher now back Dom up. Dom stands again and he paces around Trick while Rhea smiles. Dom ROCKS Trick, ROCKS him again, and then he talks trash on the fans. The fans boo but Dom knees Trick low. Dom whips and UPPERCUTS Trick down! Cover, ONE!! Trick is tougher than that and Dom is annoyed. Dom drags Trick into a chinlock and he grinds Trick down. Fans rally as Trick endures and fights up. Trick stands, pries the hold open, and fans fire up as Trick elbows Dom low! And again, and again! Dom CLUBS Trick, whips, and Trick hits buckles hard!

Dom whips corner to corner the other way and Trick hits buckles hard again! Dom wants a third, and Trick hits buckles hard yet again! Dom storms up, stomps Trick in the drop zone, then goes to the apron. Fans boo as Dom gives some Latino Heat. Dom slingshots to senton! Cover, TWO! Fans chant “YOU’RE NOT EDDIE!” Dom storms up on Trick, CHOKES him on the ropes, but the ref counts. Dom lets off at 4, Trick sputters, and Rhea talks trash. Dom then brings Trick around to slingshot stomp, just like Finn would! Finn is proud, and Dom soaks up heat from the fans. Dom then goes back for Trick, drags him up, and snap suplexes!

Fans boo as Dom turns things over, that was just Uno Amigo. Then Dom hits Dos Amigos! Dom gives more Latino Heat while fans chant “WHOOP, DAT TRICK! WHOOP WHOOP DAT TRICK!” Dom suplexes again, but Trick slips free to NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up while both men are down again! Fans keep chanting, Trick fires forearms and he DECKS Dom! And bobs ‘n’ weaves to fire off shots, UPPERCUT! Trick whips and LEG LARIATS! Then FLAPJACKS! Fans fire up as Trick runs in, spins, but Dom pushes free to SUPERKICK! Dom runs, but Trick catches the crossbody to a POEWRSLAM!

Trick wobbles, he says it’s time! Trick handsprings and ripcords, BOOKEND! Cover, TWO!! Dom survives, Rhea distracts the ref while throwing her belt to Dom! Except Trick stands over it! Trick reaches down, but Dom DDTS Trick onto the belt!! Cover, TWO!!! Trick survives Mami’s dirty little trick and Judgment Day is furious! Dom hurries to haul Trick up but Trick cradles, TWO!! Dom escapes, fires off fast hands and knees, and Trick falls! Fans boo as Dom stomps Trick, drags him around and has the legs, for a CATAPULT! Trick is on ropes, Dom dials it up! 619!! Trick falls back and Dom goes up top!

Fans boo as hard as they can as Dom FROG SPLASHES, but onto knees!! Trick saves himself and he aims from a corner! Fans are thunderous for the RUNNING KNEE!! Rhea distracts the ref again, and now JD MCDONAGH runs in!! Trick dodges to KNEE JD!! Fans are thunderous as Trick hurries, but Dom gets the briefcase! The ref sees that and stops Dom, but now Finn steps up with a tag belt! BELT SHOT!! Trick falls, Dom goes up! FROG SPLASH!!! Cover, DOM WINS!!

Winner: Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall (NEW NXT North American Champion)

Trick only got to have this title for three days, all because all FIVE Judgment Day players worked together! Dirty Dom is a two-time champion, and Mami Rhea no longer has to put him in the dog house. But is this juts because they’re feeling the walls closing in on Raw and SmackDown?

 

Wait, Paul Heyman is here?!

The Wise Man is backstage and he introduces himself. And he just wants to make sure he has this right. Next week, live on NXT, for the first time ever on cable television, Carmelo Hayes VS Bron Breakker, renewing the storied rivalry. Now, this is the same Melo that has accepted advice from the second Greatest of All Time, John Cena? The same Cena that keeps getting involved in Bloodline business? Then that means The Bloodline must reciprocate. So THE greatest of all time, Roman Reigns, has bestowed upon Heyman “the task and the privilege of providing wisdom to Bron Breakker.”

And not through a screen, over the phone, or long distance. No, it will be up close and in person, in Bron’s corner, next week! Live on N… X… T! The Special Counsel will be counseling Badass Bron, will it all help Bron take down… HIM?


My Thoughts:

A great NXT to follow up No Mercy, with some wild moves going on at the same time. It all feels like HHHBK are doing everything they can to make NXT into a big deal again, like it was in the Black ‘n’ Gold era. For one, Cody Rhodes, John Cena and Paul Heyman are all showing up next week. I really hope Cody’s reason for showing up is to announce the return of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, it feels like forever since we’ve had one, even though it was only just last year. But at the same time, it was to start 2022, and we didn’t start 2023 with one so maybe we close 2023 with one, that’d be cool.

Then Cena and Heyman are getting in on this great story with Melo and Bron. Bron trying to make Melo turn Heel is a great move because Bron is throwing everything that happened to him during his NXT Championship story right at Melo. Now, this story would be way better if they didn’t crap the bed with Trick VS Dom! The match itself was great stuff, but after everything we’ve been getting between all the brands, WHY are they just slapping that belt back on Dom!? That’s horrible! Melo and Trick should’ve had that title in the way of their friendship! I get it, they had Rhea’s ultimatum just last night and there was no way they’d actually kick Dom outta Judgment Day, but c’mon!

I can only assume that in the alternate timeline where Mustafa Ali was still here and he won this belt, the same thing would happen, but that wouldn’t make it feel any less awful. The only thing that salvages this is that Melo rubs in the “I told you so” of wanting to have Trick’s back, but I don’t want things salvaged, I want them built up. Much like we’re seeing with the NXT Women’s Division. Great move for a Triple Threat #1 contender’s match, and what a surprise to see Indi back. Indi did make good points about giving up the title without losing it, but sadly, it seems her time has passed. Becky VS Lyra is set for Halloween Havoc, and I’m pretty sure that stays the plan even with Becky VS Tegan on Monday.

Dragunov and Corbin have a good promo, and Corbin is a good choice to feed to Dragunov so he gets a first title defense in before the next major event. Good start to the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament, though it was just the one match when I thought we were getting at least two. But this was a solid win for Kelani and solid TV debut for Izzi. And we did get Thea & Jacy VS Lopez & Lola in a really good tag match. I do like that Jacy is getting Chase & Duke onboard with “grown” Thea, but I’m not sure what the endgame will be now. And really good tag match from Bate & Dunne VS Gallus. In a perfect world, Trent Seven would’ve made his return for a real British Strong Style reunion. But Ridge is a logical move, of course, and now we have a Six Man Tag set up.

Another surprising return is gonna be Asuka to do the dirty work of Kiana James. Fastlane is on the way, but I don’t think Asuka is bringing the WWE Women’s Championship to NXT, there’s a lot at Fastlane that can keep the title on Iyo Sky. But I don’t see Asuka losing to Roxie, either. Maybe Kiana mouths off on Roxie and Roxie hits her for it, and we still get Roxie VS Kiana. Gigi VS Blair was great stuff tonight, but it was also a quick pin that won this for Gigi, so they have to be doing a rematch. As such, it should be a Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal situation so these two can go No Disqualification in some way.

My Score: 8.7/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Cody Rhodes is here!

San Antonio fires up for The American Nightmare as he makes his way to the ring. The fans sing along with the song, and “WHOA~ OH~!” get the pyro. Cody steps into the ring, the fans chant his name, and he gets the mic to ask, “So, San Antonio…! What do we wanna talk about? I’d love if we could speak about how at WrestleMania 40, in the main event, with the lights on brightest, the biggest game of the year, I will stand across from the greatest champion in company history, The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.” The fans boo, but Cody says, “However… I am really unable to talk about that because of a… distraction.”

Cody says there’s a distraction that stings quite a bit. He is of course talking about… The Rock. Fans boo more, then chant “ROCKY SUCKS! ROCKY SUCKS!” Cody says last week, The Rock went to Instagram, posted a 16 minute video, then spoke at length on SmackDown. To sum it up, The Rock called the fans in Phoenix meth heads, talked about Cody’s dog, and don’t ever talk bad about Cody’s dog, and then of course, the biggest headline of all, which The Rock made sure wasn’t the headline, The Rock ever so eloquently spun things and changed the conversation.

The Rock presented a whole new challenge like the master politician that he is. No wonder people want him to run for office. Hell, Cody might even end up voting for The Rock. But Cody can’t dismiss those words entirely, because it is true what The Rock said about their conversation. The Rock poured honey into Cody’s ear, telling Cody that the people don’t want Cody VS Roman. The people want Rock VS Roman. Fans boo because that’s wrong, and Cody points out how the fans started chanting something else. The fans respond here with “We Want Cody!” Cody nods and continues by saying that he heard all that, the management all heard it, and Cody appreciates it.

The Rock of course heard all that, because then he called those fans “crybabies.” Are there any crybabies here in San Antonio? The fans fire up! But now, The Rock has presented an entirely different challenge. One that doesn’t just involve Cody, but one that involves his… friend. Yeah, they’re friends! And it’s time for that friend to come out here! Ladies and gentlemen, it’s the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The Visionary makes his entrance in a volt green ensemble and the fans sing his song, “WHOA~ OH~ OHH~!” Rollins joins Cody in the ring, gets a mic, and then revels in the singing.

Rollins then says, “San Antonio! Welcome…! To Monday! Night! Rollins~!” The fans cheer and Rollins ask “Mr. Nightmare, what’re you thinking, my man?” Cody says obviously, Rollins has offered to have Cody’s back against The Bloodline. Rollins stood next to Cody when he got slapped across the face, and Rollins has said he’s going to be there moving forward. The plot has been incredibly twisted. Cody didn’t even think he was gonna be on the WrestleMania card anymore, but when he saw that pompous PowerPoint presentation about The Bloodline’s family being better than everyone else’s that Cody had to go back on his word.

Cody won the Rumble, it is his right, HE gets to challenge Roman Reigns. Rollins meanwhile, coming off injury, he has to face the only other guy who has pinned Cody since Cody’s WWE return in Drew McIntyre. So, what Cody is saying and has wanted to say for all the world to see: Roman & Rock are two Mount Rushmore caliber wrestlers, working together, Cody fully understands if Rollins wants to focus on McIntyre and is not onboard with having Cody’s back. Rollins scratches the back of his head while he thinks. Rollins says he respects Cody giving him the out, Rollins will take care of McIntyre, alright?

Fans cheer as Rollins reminds us that he told McIntyre, he told Cody and he told the world, there are some things bigger than us. And taking down The Bloodline is the BIGGEST thing they can do! The fans cheer more, and Rollins says this isn’t just Cody’s story that needs to be finished. It is Rollins’ story, too. Ten years ago, Rollins and Roman came in together, they wanted to take the power from the top. Rollins wanted to take the power and give it back to the people! Turns out, Roman wants to keep all the power for himself! And here’s the problem: Rollins and Cody are this close. The Rock being in The Bloodline, they are this close to Roman Reigns having absolute power.

And The Rock, well… Rollins isn’t sure about the fans but he knows Cody agrees with this, Rollins is so over The Rock. The fans chant “ROCKY SUCKS!” again and Rollins says yeah, he does suck! And he ain’t been The Rock for a long time. He damn sure ain’t been The People’s Champ! And so Rollins isn’t just gonna call him any of that. Rollins has been thinking about it, he wants a new name for The Rock. He’s now gonna be… Diarrhea Dwayne! Because he’s been running his mouth and all that comes out is wet baby poo. The fans chant “DIARRHEA!” and Rollins is amused. Guess San Antonio agrees, huh?

Rollins continues to say that The Rock gets on Instagram, and 21 minutes!? Seriously? He insults Cody’s dog and says he can make the World Heavyweight Championship “go away?” That with a snap of his fingers, because he’s the boss, he’ll make it go away. Rock, Rollins dares you to try! And get this! In case you didn’t hear him, because 21 minutes is a long time to listen to that idiot, Rock said he made pro-wrestling cool again! Fans boo and Rollins agrees there. The Rock is our wrestling savior! He made this cool! Diarrhea Dwayne, you ain’t been cool in 20 years!

But here’s what is cool: This morning, Rollins received a 100% medical clearance! He is BACK, he is ready to go, and so this Friday, Rollins will be at SmackDown to confront The Bloodline! The fans fire up hearing that! Rollins wants to know, though, as he’s asked Cody many times and told him for weeks. Rollins has Cody’s back, so what Rollins wants to know is: does Cody have his? Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Cody tells Rollins that he also has a message for The Rock. “It’s been a long time since you haven’t just been handed something. I think it’s been since you had that seven bucks in your pocket, and I think you forgot.

“The People’s Champion is not in perpetuity, Rock. I am not the same man as you. I’m not gonna whine in a 21 minute promo. I am coming to SmackDown with Seth Freakin’ Rollins, I am going to stand across from you, Roman Reigns, The Wise Man, the whole Bloodline, in the great state of Texas, and this Friday, I will give you face-to-face, eye-to-eye, not whispering in your ear, crystal clear and obvious answer for what’s happening at WrestleMania!” Well, the American Nightmare & Visionary are all fired up, and it is pretty clear what’s about to happen at WrestleMania! Will this dream team tear down the Rock & Roman?

 

GUNTHER VS Dominik Mysterio w/ JD McDonagh!

Der Ring General wants challengers for his Intercontinental Championship, but he also doesn’t really take anyone else on this roster seriously. And, well, of all people to step up to him, it was Dirty Dom. Will the Prodigal Son prove the doubters wrong and find a way to bring down the most dominant Intercontinental Champion in history? Or is he going to wish he never left Papa Rey’s side?

The bell rings and Dom circles with Gunther. They feel things out, Dom kicks low but then backs away. The fans chant “Dom, You Suck!” Dom and Gunther tie up, and Gunther TOSSES Dom away! Dom staggers up and Gunther smiles. Dom and Gunther reset, then Dom goes for a leg. Gunther smothers that takedown with a facelock, then gets a leg! HALF CRAB! Dom scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Gunther lets off, and the Irish Ace coaches Dom up. Dom gets up to shove Gunther, then CHOPS him! Fans fire up but Gunther TOSSES Dom to a corner! Dom dodges the chop to CHOP again!

Gunther snarls, Dom wants forgiveness and hides in the ropes. Then Dom SLAPS Gunther! Gunther chases Dom out of the ring, and around it, but then JD steps up. JD knows how to take it to Gunther, but Gunther shoves JD into a post! Gunther swings but Dom gets JD outta the way, Gunther CHOPS the POST! Dom then SMACKS the hand off the post! Dom goes up while Gunter slides in, and Dom slingshots to STOMP! Dom gets Gunther up but Gunther gets a SLEEPER! Dom pries the bad arm away for an ELBOW BREAKER! Dom knuckle locks, CHOPS, then goes up and up to flying- NO, Gunther disrupts that!

Gunther kicks low then CHOPS through the pain! Dom falls right outta the ring and fans fire up while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Gunther looms over Dom. Gunther drags Dom up, but Dom CHOPS! Gunther CHOPS Dom right down! Gunther stands Dom up again, puts him in a corner, and rips that vest open! Gunther CHOPS Dom inside-out! Gunther drags Dom right back up and fans want that “One More Time!” Gunther obliges and CHOPS Dom right back down! Gunther then gets the legs, turns Dom over, and has the BOSTON CRAB! Dom endures while Gunther sits deep! JD gets on the apron, Gunther runs him off, but Dom is free to DROPKICK Gunther down! The fans boo but Dom goes up and up and TRIANGLE JUMP PLANCHAS!

Dom and Gunther are both down on the outside and JD coaches Dom up. The ring count climbs, Gunther stands at 5 of 10. Dom follows and CHOPS! Gunther CHOPS Dom again! Gunther shoves Dom in at 7, slides in after him, and then runs up, but into a drop toehold! Gunther’s on ropes, Dom dials it up, but Gunther LARIATS Dom inside-out! Cover, but Gunther lets off?!? Gunther wants to hurt Dom for his insolence and the fans are loving it! Gunther gets the legs again but Dom kicks and kicks and kicks! Dom is free again, but Gunther SLAPS him! Gunther reels Dom in, hoists Gunther up, but Dom hits a SUNSET BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Gunther is free and JD can’t believe how close that was! Dom hurries back up, dodges Gunther to CLOBBER him! Gunther ends up on ropes again and Dom redials! 619!! Gunther falls over, Dom goes up the corner! Shout out to Eddie with the FROG- NO, Dom has to bail through! T-REX SHOTGUN!! Gunther hauls Dom up, for the GUNTHER BOMB!! And then the BOSTON CRAB!! Dom taps, Gunther wins!

Winner: Gunther, by submission

Der Ring General made sure Judgment Day understands what stepping to him means! Will the rest of the Raw roster also reconsider challenging Gunther for WrestleMania?

 

Damage Control is backstage.

Dakota Kai, having betrayed Bayley, is still with Iyo Sky, Asuka & Kairi Sane, feeling good after SmackDown. But then Adam Pearce walks over. Just what’re they doing here tonight? Uh, wow, Pearce, you do realize the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions can go to whatever brand they want to, right? That’s how this works. Yeah, he is aware of that. But the last time they were all here, they caused chaos. So whatever they’ve got planned, he doesn’t want it. So he will rephrase the question: Why are they here? Well, since he asked so nicely, Shayna & Zoey have been running their mouths lately.

So DMG CTRL just figured, Shayna & Zoey have a match, so DMG CTRL wants to scout the competition. No worries, Pearce, you can trust them. Shinsuke Nakamura then walks over and says he and Pearce need to talk. Pearce assumes this is about the Intercontinental Championship. Yes, it is. Dakota says Pearce is busy, DMG CTRL will take care of business. Nothing to worry about! Sure. Pearce says he’ll keep his eyes on them, and then he tells Nakamura that he gets it. But Pearce has an announcement about the contender for later tonight. If Nakamura wants to talk about that, meet him in his office. Thank you.

The King of Strong Style heads out, and Pearce has his hands full tonight. Will Der Ring General have some real competition now? Will The Queen of Spades & The Hunter prove to DMG CTRL that they’re a legitimate threat?

 

Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark VS Kayden Carter & Katana Chance!

The WWE Women’s Tag Division is heating up, and this match could go a long way to determining the next challengers for Asuka & Kairi. The Queen of Spades & The Hunter are hungry for gold, will they tear up the former champions to whet their appetite? Or will WrestleMania truly become the biggest party on the WWE calendar?

The teams sort out, Kayden starts against Shayna and the two circle. They tie up, Shayna waistlocks, but Kayden uses that to victory roll. ONE, and Shayna avoids the kick. Kayden says that was close, and the two go again. Shayna runs in, Kayden dodges and wheelbarrows, but Shayna blocks the arm-drag to STOMP that arm! Kayden writhes, Shayna soaks up the cheers and jeers, and then she drags Kayden up. Shayna wrenches the arm, tags Zoey, and they hand off the wristlock. Zoey corners Kayden while Shayna runs side to side, but Kayden gets away from them both! Shayna knees buckles, Kayden dodges Zoey then BOOTS her away!

Kayden KICKS from below, runs, but into a SUPERKICK! Shayna tags back in, Zoey hangs Kayden out to dry for Shayna to KNEE her down! The hunters egg DMG CTRL on but DMG CTRL sends it back while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Katana drags Zoey up, but Zoey fireman’s carries! Zoey swings but Katana arm-drags her away! Katana runs up but into a SUPERKICK! Zoey goes out, climbs up, but Kayden anchors her! Katana then ROCKS Zoey, CLUBS away on her, and brings her up. Kayden tags in before Zoey shoves Katana away. Kayden goes up now, fires forearms, and Katana joins in. The fans rally up for the DOUBLE SPANISH FLY!! Cover, TWO!! Zoey survives, KC Squared are shocked, but the fans fire up! Kayden tags Katana and gets Zoey back up. Fireman’s carry and Katana climbs, to step over and RANA Shayna!

But Zoey fights free, shoves Kayden then fires forearms! Katana runs back in but is put up top! Kayden blocks the superkick to SUPERKICK back! Then she hooks Stark up, AFTER PARTY!! Cover, Shayna YANKS Katana off! Kayden runs up but Shayna gets a KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! Zoey rolls and stacks Katana, Zoey & Shayna win!

Winners: Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark, by pinfall

DMG CTRL don’t seem that impressed, but they join everyone in the ring. Dakota asks why Zoey & Shayna are eyeing them like that. Do they not trust DMG CTRL? They’re just here to congratulate them on a good match. But uh, it got Dakota thinking. After the Kabuki Warriors defend their titles tomorrow night at NXT Roadblock, they’ll come back to Raw for Houston, a far superior city to San Antonio, and then Zoey & Shayna get a tag title match. But don’t get it twisted. You’ll both be sent home crying, just like Bayley. Shayna snatches the mic but DMG CTRL steps up to reinforce Dakota.

Shayna says, “Well, it’s about time. We’ll see you next week.” Shayna & Zoey head out, will they get the gold even before Mania? Or will that Roadblock end up too much for even Asuka & Kairi?

 

Judgment Day regroups backstage.

Dom is being checked by the medic, and Rhea tells Dom, “What did you think was gonna happen?” Dom motions that he wanted the title, but Priest tells him to take it easy. Priest says he and Finn are gonna make things right with Imperium. Finn says, “Like we always do.” They fist bump, and Priest tells JD that he’s gonna be the one to make things right with Gunther. He is? Andrade walks in, says hey to Dom and hopes that he’ll be alright. Andrade then heads out to get ready for his match. Dom says keep an eye on El Idolo, he could be big for them. Priest and Dom talk in Spanish, and it seems Priest gets what Dom means.

JD wants to talk more about this him and Gunther thing. Priest says they can talk more about it later. Just take care of Dom first. The Judgment Day holds together, but will they really be able to bring down Der Ring General?

 

Becky Lynch VS Nia Jax!

The Man won the Elimination Chamber and will face Rhea Ripley for the Women’s World Championship. However, the Irresistible Force did beat Becky 1v1 a month or so ago, and that is reason enough for Nia to say she deserves another shot. Will Becky end up A-Nia-lated again? Or will she make sure to keep The Man in WrestleMania 40?

The bell rings and the two glare at each other. Nia rushes in, Becky dodges and puts her in a corner to then stomp away. The fans fire up but the ref counts. Becky lets off, runs back up, but Nia picks Becky up to RAM her into another corner! Nia RAMS Becky again and again and again, then lets off to tell the ref to leave her alone. Nia runs back in but Becky BOOTS her! Becky then SHOTGUNS but Nia stays up! Becky runs to forearm smash! And JUMP KICK but Nia swats it! Nia fireman’s carries, but Becky sunset flips! Becky avoids a stomp, keeps moving, but Nia catches the crossbody for a POWERSLAM!

Nia snarls as she looms over Becky. Fans boo and Becky flounders, but Nia watches her go to a corner. Nia runs in to SPLASH, and then she keeps Becky from falling over. Nia HEADBUTTS Becky down, then runs to drop an elbow! Cover, TWO! Becky is hanging in there but Nia looms over her again. The fans rally for Becky as Nia drags her up. Becky throws body shots then forearms, but Nia scoops! Becky squirrels around to a SLEEPER! The fans fire up as Nia claws at the hold! Nia RAMS Becky into buckles, and again, and again! Nia THROWS Becky off her, and catches her breath while Becky flounders around again.

Nia runs in at the corner again, to back body block! Becky sits down, Nia says kiss this! HIP ATTACK! And she rubs it in! Becky sputters and coughs, Nia CHOKES Becky on the ropes! The ref counts, Nia lets off, and then she brings Becky up. Nia scoops but Becky slips free to CHOP BLOCK! The fans fire up as Becky kciks away on Nia’s hips and clubs away on her neck! But Nia SHOVES Becky away! Becky ELBOWS back, BOOTS her, then goes up the corner! Becky MISSILIE DROPKICKS! Nia staggers and tumbles out of the ring! Becky builds speed to WRECK Nia with another dropkick! Becky hurries to the corner again and goes up!

Becky CROSSBODIES, but Nia catches her! For a SAMOAN DROP to the floor! Becky is in big time trouble as Raw goes to break!

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!

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?

The teams sort out and Austin starts against Brother Zay. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” and Austin circles with Zay. Jarrett coaches Zay up and he ties up with Austin.

#TriplePartyJay tried to use the numbers game, but not even they could stop this super six pack from flexing their guns! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions stand tall together once again, and White gets the mic. “Yo! Yo! YO!” White is copying Max as he says, “Listen! See, Max? It’s not that hard. Oh yeah, guns up for my Greensboro Gold Members~!” Now, White is always telling the gang about how much he loves Greensboro. It’s one of his favorite cities in the world! The fans appreciate that, and White continues to say that Greensboro has some of the greatest wrestling fans!

The fans again cheer, and White says hey, what better place to have an event like Revolution? And there’s a lot of action tonight! Will Ospreay is here! Who walks out the AEW World Champion? Fans chant “JOE! JOE! JOE!” so that answers that. Oh oh oh oh, who is ready for Sting’s last match, huh? The fans sure are! A very big night, kicking off the biggest way possible with the Bang! Bang! Scissor! Gang! The two best trios, the single best six man team, and the GREATEST faction in the GREATEST wrestling company, AEW! The fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and White says BBSG is led by one of the greatest of all time.

White can remind any of us, that on any given day, at any given moment, just who he is. He’ll remind us why he is the Catalyst of Pro-Wrestling! He’ll remind us to Breathe with the Switchblade! The fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Switchblade~!” White says in ten days time, AEW Dynamite in Boston, maybe he handles some Big Business of his own! Fans like the sound of that. But until then, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed. And if you ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! The Switchblade is taking aim at something, two guesses what title he wants to add to the collection.

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Lexi Nair is with Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor, but also Doc Sampson, because we need a medical update on the International Champion before his match with Roderick Strong tonight. Doc says as we know, Cassidy has been getting beat up the last few months, and that Doc keeps telling Cassidy to tape up that back and ribs. Tonight, it happens or he isn’t being cleared. Then with all that said, how does Cassidy feel going into this? Trent speaks up that Cassidy always fights through it. And just like always, the boys have his back. Cassidy wants to talk to them about that, actually

Tonight, before, during and after, Best Friends need to stay in the back. Cassidy is sick and tired of seeing his friends getting hurt because of him, so he has to do this on his own. Chuck says yeah, he’ll keep the others back and respect Cassidy on this. Hands in, and even Doc and Lexi join in. Freshly Squeezed has support in spirit, but will that not help when The Undisputed Kingdom will stack the deck?

 

We hear from PAC!

The Bastard says, “Here we go again. A tale as old as time. The forgotten bastard! Where have you been, boy? None of your pissin’ business where I’ve been! Well, you tell me. Who said life’s so hard? Huh? Every man has his struggle. Do you think I don’t know the burden of shame? Isolated, blinded, broken. I almost popped me clogs. But I didn’t~! You’ll never get rid of me, Tony Khan! I’m like a cockroach, an indestructible little bastard, always lurking in the underbelly. I will be back very soon, whether you like it or not. And I am going to drag this festering scrotum of a company into a new age! Because I’m alive, ladies and gentlemen! And doesn’t it feel good to be alive?”

AEW Continental Triple Crown Championship: Eddie Kingston VS Bryan Danielson!

Speaking of thrones, The Mad King still holds the three belts that define this modern American Triple Crown. But even more than these titles, he is looking to win Bryan’s respect. Will Eddie slay the American Dragon and make him shake his hand? Or will Bryan make his last year as a wrestler a golden one?

Renee Paquette is at gorilla with Eddie, saying tonight is all about respect, and perhaps the lack thereof from Bryan, who crowned Eddie “The King of the Bums.” Eddie is the first Continental Crown Champion, and he dedicates tonight’s match to Jun Akiyama.
