Randy Orton is here!

Nashville fires up as The Viper is back! Orton came through for Cody Rhodes and the team in WarGames and they all defeated The Judgment Day plus Drew McIntyre, and he is feeling good being back on Raw. Orton signs a young fan’s action figure box, then goes to the ring. Orton thinks about how long it has been, and he steps up to finally and once again hit his pose! The fans cheer, and they chant for “RANDY! RANDY!” as Orton gets a mic. “Well, it seems, or I should say it sounds like a few of you missed me.” Fans cheer again, and Randy says, “I’m back! I’m back for as long as I can stay here. Now without any further ado, let me cut right to it. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Monday Night Raw!”

Fans cheer again and Orton says he was gone awhile, wasn’t he? Nashville chants “Welcome Back!” and Orton nods. He thanks them and says the whole time he was gone, it gave him plenty of time to think about all his accomplishments and accolades. They already know all that and he won’t bore us to day, but he had never done one particular thing. And it was WarGames. So when his dear friend, Cody Rhodes–fans cheer a lot–called, of course Orton was in! But there was another reason he wanted in. It is because WarGames was invented by the late, great American Dream, Dusty Rhodes! To be part of that match is to be part of pro-wrestling history!

And guys, that is what it is all about. Making moments. Two nights ago at Survivor Series, he got to make a moment. But he also came back because he has unfinished business to attend to. And that business has to do… with The Bloodline. Now, if anyone gets where those guys are coming from, it’s him. Orton’s the Legend Killer, he made a living out of putting people on the shelves. He can forgive, but he can’t forget. So point of the matter is, he has a bag full of receipts for every single member of The Bloodline, and he means every single member! Now, he is sure they know what form the receipts come in, right?

These receipts are in the form of the three most dangerous letters in the WWE. NO, the most dangerous letters in ALL of Sports Entertainment: R K O! Fans fire up for that! But then Rhea Ripley makes her way out here? Mami waves hi to Randy as she struts down to the ring. Rhea is still Women’s World Champion after dealing with Zoey Stark, but she welcomes Orton back. What a performance he had at Survivor Series. She didn’t think he was the kind to do favors for others, or to team with someone who tried to end his career. Or have his big return a year in the making upstaged.

But hey, don’t get Rhea wrong. Randy looks more dangerous than ever, so it’d be a shame to have all of that wasted. Because Randy doesn’t realize that the landscape here has changed. The Bloodline has fallen, and the Judgment Day has risen as the most dominant force here in the WWE. Fans boo but Rhea says when it comes to WarGames, that was just a bump in the road. The reality is, Randy, they’re all dripping in gold! Rhea wiped the floor with Zoey, Her Dirty Dom is THE NXT North American Champion, and when it comes to Finn & Damian, they hold those Undisputed Tag Team Championships that Randy lost everything trying to get.

And if not for Randy, Damian would be the NEW World Heavyweight Champion! So he’s come in here, made all these enemies that could make his life a living nightmare. He needs to stop focusing on The Bloodline because unlike them, The Judgment Day gets the job done, and they will put Randy out permanently! Fans chant “R K O! R K O!” and Randy looks around. He stated how he kept in touch and watched for a year and a half. It’s Mami this, Mami that, blah blah blah. Guess what, Mami? Daddy’s back! Fans fire up for that! They chant “Who’s Your Daddy?” Randy says yeah, things have changed. A lot of things.

But the one thing that hasn’t changed, the one thing that will never, ever, EVER change as long as Orton is here, is that no one tells Randy Orton what to do. Rhea laughs and says he’s made his bed. She tried to warn him, tried to give him an out, but Orton has made them his enemy. And the Judgment Day attacks from behind! Dom, and McDonagh in a neck brace, stomp away on Orton in a corner! Orton fights back, POSTS McDonagh and puts Dom in ropes! Fans fire up as Randy drags Dom along, but McDonagh CLUBS Orton! RKO FOR JD!! Fans fire up as The Viper keeps the Irish Ace down and gets the mic back.

“Don’t you go too far, Dom. Don’t you leave this damn arena. Cuz as soon as I leave this ring, I’m gonna find Adam Pearce, and I’m gonna make damn sure I get you in this ring, one on one, TONIGHT!” Fans love the sound of that! Rhea freaks out, is her Latino Heat about to end up snakebit?

 

The Raw Tag Division gathers backstage.

Chad Gable says tonight is the night! For the first time ever, Otis & Tozawa team up! You guys ready? OOOH YEAH~! Woods & Kofi can’t believe this, the New Day’s been at this a decade and a team that literally just got put together is facing them? Maxxine & Ivy walk in, and no pressure but they have a very special guest. He is a CMA award winning, Grammy nominated and multi-platinum artist, it’s JELLY ROLL! Everyone’s excited to say hey, and Otis brings it for a belly bump! Jelly is excited to see them all in his hometown, but then R-TRUTH is here! Wassup, guys? Where’s them jelly rolls? His sweet tooth’s got a sweet tooth.

Uh, no, Truth, this guy is Jelly Roll. He’s got ’em all? He can’t have ’em all. Truth say she gotta go check catering. Tozawa, hit ’em with the roll. Ooooooh, that’s naaaaaaasty~! Truth’s confusion aside, will this Tag Team Turmoil be sweet and spicy?

Winners: The Creed Brothers, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contenders to the Undisputed Tag Team Championships)

Diamond Mine doesn’t break, they thrive under pressure! But will Julius & Brutus be able to take down The Prince & Punisher to take those titles?

 

Judgment Day regroups backstage.

Rhea says Randy is dangerous, so Dom has to be absolutely focused. Finn walks in, he just finished watching Tag Team Turmoil. Those Creed Brothers are the real deal. Priest, we can’t take them lightly. Priest, you hearing them? Priest snaps out of his funk. He hears them. And he sees the look on their faces. Go ahead, say what you wanna say. They made him WarGames captain and he let them down. He lost the match, embarrassed them, let them all down. Go ahead, say it. Finn wasn’t gonna say any of that. Priest says no, he can tell. But Rhea says no, they’re a family. They all rise together and they all fall together.

Finn says yeah, don’t sweat it, it was one loss. They’re still champions, right? Dom says yeah, it’s all good. This is real? Yeah, 100%. Rhea says that just because Priest made himself team leader for WarGames and it didn’t go their way, that doesn’t mean they are gonna hold a grudge. Just relax. Priest says okay, that’s what families do, he appreciates it. And on that subject, how is McDonagh? Still getting checked out. Finn & Priest should go check on him. Good idea. The tag champs head out, but will their tensions be eased by the time they have to defend the titles?

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

Nashville fires up and sings along as the American Nightmare makes his way to the ring, “WHOA~ OH!” Cody goes to the ring and gets his pyro, “WHOA~ OH!” before he gets the mic. Fans cheer Cody on, and he gets fired up! Then he smiles and asks Nashville, “Whaddya wanna talk about?” Cody says so many stories stemming from this weekend. Here is one of gratitude. His team in WarGames was able to secure the victory, and Cody wants to thank each and every one of his teammates. Sami Zayn, #YeetMaster Jey Uso, the World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, “WHOA~ OH~ OHH~!” And let’s not forget the man who came through, the Legend Killer, Randy Orton!

Fans cheer again, and Cody says Randy was a mentor, is still a mentor, and is a dear friend. They had a handful of memories before but they got a new one. Orton fed Priest to Cody for the Cross Rhodes and let him have the 1-2-3. But not just in any match, it was in his dad’s match. Fans cheer for “DUSTY! DUSTY!” and Cody gets a little teary eyed. The other story from Survivor Series: The WWE return of C M Punk. Fans are a bit torn, but plenty chant for Punk. Cody says no one knew that was gonna happen, and no one knows what will happen. That is why tonight, we’re all tuned in to see what Punk has to say. Here’s what Cody has to say: Welcome back.

But what’s the saying? Fishermen always spot other fishermen from afar. That is why Cody feels this news being made, all these stories, well Cody wants to make some news and make it right here. At this point, everyone here truly knows him. So there is only one destination for Cody now. And that is why, granted by Adam Pearce, Cody is the very first to declare for the 2024 Royal Rumble match!! Fans fire up for that! But then wait, the lights start going down? And then SHINSUKE NAKAMURA is on screen! “Cody… You are a brave hero who has won his battle. Now you say you need to continue your story. But, I need you to set me free. To awaken me. To evolve!”

Nakamura was patient to wait week after week, btu no more waiting! He will bring CHAOS to Cody! And then the REAL Nakamura is already behind Cody!! RED MIST!!! Cody writhes and fans boo but Nakamura grins a sinister smile. The King of Strong Style takes a bow, will he destroy the American Nightmare’s dreams?

 

Bronson Reed VS Ivar w/ Sarah Logan!

As if tonight wasn’t already a big night, things are about to get massive! Will Auszilla wipe out the War Beard with a Tsunami? Or will the chosen warrior slay this real life kaiju?

The ref counts, Bronson lets off to HEADBUTT Ivar, and then he CHOKES Ivar on the ropes! The ref counts, Bronson lets off, and he brings Ivar up to HEADBUTT! Bronson clamps on a chinlock now and he squeezes tight. Ivar endures, fights up, and throws body shots. Bronson ROCKS Ivar, whips him to ropes, but Ivar ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both behemoths down! The fans rally while both men stir, and Bronson sits up. Ivar follows, and Ivar throws hands! Bronson hits back, they throw shots back and forth. Raw returns, fans chant “BEEF!” with the shots! Bronson HEADBUTTS Ivar to a corner, then SPLASHES!

Bronson CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans fire up, but Bronson swings again. Ivar dodges to ELBOW! And ELBOW, ELBOW, ELBOW! Fans fire up and Ivar spins, but the kick is blocked! Bronson SUPERKICKS! Ivar goes to a corner, Bronson runs in but into a BOOT! Ivar runs, into a SAMOAN DROP! Fans fire up as Bronson then SENTONS! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Bronson stalks Ivar. Ivar rises, Bronson ripcords but Ivar dodges! Ivar scoops to SPINNING POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Bronson survives and Ivar grows frustrated. Ivar drags Bronson to a drop zone, then he climbs up the corner!

Fans fire up as Ivar reaches the top, for the DOOM-SAULT! But he FLOPS as Bronson moves! Bronson now goes up and fans fire up again! Sarah distracts and fans boo! The ref reprimands, Bronson hurries down, and Ivar goes to the far side. The ref EJECTS Sarah! The fans fire up for that, Bronson runs at Ivar, but Ivar dodges!

Producers rush out here, they get Ivar away from Bronson while Nashville loses their minds! Bronson and Ivar shout that this isn’t done, but then when and where will this end?

 

Zoey Stark stalks with Shayna Baszler backstage.

Stark feels how close she was to beating Rhea. Shayna says yeah, she gave Rhea a good fight. She’ll get another shot, just relax. Right, Shayna’s right. But Nia walks in and sarcastically applauds. “Congrats, champ. Oh, that’s right, Zoey, you had a great match against Rhea at Survivor Series, and you took her to her limit, but you fell a little short, didn’t ya? And ya lost.” It should’ve been Nia against Rhea because then she’d be champ. But Nia will still tear through the division, so every woman should be on notice. That includes Zoey and Shayna. Shayna tells Nia to do us all a favor and “shut your hole,” before someone breaks your arm and puts you on the shelf, again.

Zoey says she’s got this, she doesn’t need someone standing up for her. So Nia, if you want a fight, then they can go 1v1 tonight. Nia says that’s exactly what she wanted. Nia heads out, Zoey and Shayna can’t deal, but will the Irresistible Force turn the Hunter into the Hunted?

 

Judgment Day regroups again.

But Priest, Finn & McDonagh can’t believe it. R-TRUTH is on their couch, eating jelly rolls, and has gotten powdered sugar EVERYWHERE! And all he can say is, “Wassup, dawg?” Finn asks what the hell! Truth found a comfy place to eat this award winning jelly rolls. Truth… This is THEIR clubhouse! And now it’s a mess! Yeah, and they don’t have a TV. But he heard they wanted a fifth member for WarGames, and so sign him up. Truth… That was Saturday! No! Yep. Did they win? How’d he do? Priest says Truth wasn’t in there, and they lost anyway, thanks for the reminder. Oh, sorry. Cheer up, though. Randy Orton’s back! Ain’t that cool?

The Judgment Day tell Truth to get out! Are they sure they don’t want any jelly rolls? NO!! NOW GO! Truth leaves, the couch is ruined, and McDonagh says he’ll take care of Truth. Is the Irish Ace going to make Truth wish he had stayed gone?

 

Nia Jax VS Zoey Stark!

Raw returns and Stark makes her entrance. The bell rings and Nia runs in! Zoey slide sunder, KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, then runs to ROCK Nia!

The Irresistible Force could not be stopped, she puts another name on the list! Will it only be a matter of time before she steamrolls even Rhea Ripley?

 

Imperium regroups backstage.

Ludwig and Vinci argue over their loss, and Gunther walks over. Der Ring General expects them both to go to Adam Pearce and sort out this DIY issue. Vinci promises- Oh, Vinci promises?! Ludwig says HE promises to get it done. They head out together, Gunther grumbles, but then he turns around to see The Miz. Miz asks if there’s trouble. What does Miz want? Miz says he heard Gunther’s comments during the Survivor Series press conference. Gunther said his next challenger should be someone who challenges him to his face. Well here Miz is! Gunther chuckles. Is Miz sure about this? Oh, he’s real sure.

Miz is sure he CAN beat Gunther and take that title. Miz know sit, and now Gunther knows. Gunther knows that Miz is no threat to his legendary reign. But Miz did stand up for himself so Gunther gives him that. Miz came prepared for a fight. Miz can claim he belongs in that ring, just not with Gunther. So is that a no on a rematch from their great Survivor Series showdown? Or will the Hollywood A-Lister find a way to get that sequel made?

 

Seth Rollins is here!

Nashville fires up and sings along “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~” as the World Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring. The Visionary is feeling good after the WarGames win, but might be feeling some kinda way after seeing CM Punk return. We hear what is on Rollins’ mind, after the break.

Raw returns and the fans are still singing, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins has the mic to say, “NASVILLE~! Welcome… to Mondaaay! Niiight! Rolliiins!” And he is a Visionary, he is a Revolutionary, he IS Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The singing returns, but there are also some “C M PUNK!” chants. Rollins takes off his sunglasses and says go on then. Come on with it. Is that all they got, Punk fans? Yeah, get it out of your system, because tell you what. Rollins won’t spend one more second, one more ounce of energy, on that hypocrite! Fans get riled up and Rollins says instead of talking about someone who don’t matter at all, let’s talk about what matters most!

Let’s talk about the title that for the last six months, Rollins has built into the most IMPORTANT title in this entire industry! Fans cheer that, and the singing returns. Now, Nashville, Rollins has to be real. Two days out from WarGames, he is not feeling too good. But he’s starting to get that itch again. He’s starting to get the itch to be a fighting champion again. And he went and saw Adam Pearce earlier today. They sat in the office, talked about- DREW MCINTYRE!? The Scottish Warrior walks down to the ring and Nashville is a bit torn. McIntyre gets a mic to say it has been a crazy 48 hours around here, hasn’t it?

Goodness, people are talking about a lot of things, about what happened outside the ring with McIntyre and Rollins, but they both know what is more important: what happens in the ring. So McIntyre wants to shake Rollins’ hands to congratulate him on the win in WarGames. Rollins accepts, and McIntyre then says Judgment Day had some master plan. They promised Jey Uso on a silver platter, but McIntyre didn’t get Jey, and the real plan was losing, so that’s one hell of a plan. Jey’s been driving McIntyre mental, and McIntyre realized these last 48 hours that he needs to refocus. Jey is on the backburner, McIntyre will focus on what is most important: the World Heavyweight Championship.

Now does Rollins remember what he said before their match at Crown Jewel? Rollins chuckles and says yes, he does. He told McIntyre that when Rollins beats McIntyre, McIntyre would have no one to blame but himself. And that it’d be the best thing to ever happen to him. Was Rollins right? Yes, 100% right. McIntyre has no one but to blame but himself for losing at Crown Jewel. And Rollins surely remembers that one point in the match. If anyone wants to watch it back, there was a point where McIntyre had Rollins on the steps, dropped him on the apron, and Rollins rolled into the ring. McIntyre could see it in Rollins’ eyes that he was finished.

That is where McIntyre should’ve struck. But something came over him as he saw Rollins writhing in pain. It was sympathy and compassion. Something about thinking of Rollins with his daughter backstage, it felt the urge to tell Rollins it was okay and it was over. McIntyre took Rollins by the face to say that, and Rollins SLAPS him! McIntyre deserved that slap, that was on him. Acting like that with Rollins, Rollins was always gonna win. To swim with shark, you gotta become the biggest shark of all. So no more sympathy, no more compassion, forget Jey Uso, McIntyre wants a damn rematch!

Rollins says if there’s one thing he has always respected from McIntyre, it is his honesty. And to be honest with McIntyre, Rollins does believe McIntyre deserves a rematch. The problem is, Rollins also believes there are some others who deserve an opportunity more. And that, Nashville, is why Rollins came out here tonight. He talked with Pearce, and he wanted to tell everyone right here, next week, Rollins defends the World Heavyweight Championship LIVE on Monday Night Raw! Fans cheer, McIntyre sighs, and he says Rollins is the champ, he calls the shot. But can McIntyre ask who the match is with?

Rollins is hesitant. Rollins says okay, he’ll just say it. It’s Jey Uso. Fans chant “YEET! YEET! YEET!” and McIntyre looks dumbfounded. Rollins says this wasn’t personal, it- GLASGOW KISS HEADBUTT!! Fans are stunned as McIntyre busts his own forehead open with that shot! And as he said, no more compassion! He RAMS Rollins into a corner, then OVERHEAD SUPLEXES! McIntyre gets in Rollins’ face again and asks if this really isn’t personal. JEY USO of all people?! McIntyre BEAT Jey two weeks ago!! He should be head of him! McIntyre throws down another HEADBUTT! But here comes Jey!

Fans fire up as Jey storms up to the ring, slides in, and he dodges McIntyre to fire off haymakers! The fans chant “YEET! YEET! YEET!” with every shot! Jey pops ‘n’ locks and ROCKS McIntyre! Then SUPERKICKS! Rollins is up, he and Jey DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Fans fire up while McIntyre is in retreat. Jey then picks up the world title, looks at it, but smiles and hands it over to Rollins. Fans cheer but will Main Event Jey finally reach the mountaintop next week?

 

Sami Zayn confronts McIntyre backstage.

McIntyre tells him not now but Sami says no, he needs to hear this. Sami doesn’t know what’s going on with McIntyre, but c’mon. He can’t beat Rollins so he has to headbutt him when he’s not ready? McIntyre says Rollins has something against him, and Sami doesn’t know what he’s going through. Oh, Sami doesn’t know? Guess what? You’re not the only one who’s had disappointments around here! McIntyre lost out on the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns in front of his family? So did Sami! McIntyre came up seconds short of beating Rollins? So did Sami! Every disappointment McIntyre’s had in his career, Sami’s had that times TEN!

The difference is, when Sami falls down, he dusts himself off, picks himself up and keeps moving forward because he knows the endgame for him is becoming World Heavyweight Champion! McIntyre has already been a world champion twice, and he’s 6’6″, 300 pounds of pure muscle! He has everything going for him, but he’s acting like a spoiled little brat. Sami says McIntyre is better than that. McIntyre says maybe Sami’s got a point. Maybe McIntyre should be taking everyone’s advice, including his own, and fighting his way up the ladder. He can go talk with Pearce to get a match next week. With Sami.

McIntyre heads out, and while Sami stood up to do the right thing, did he also just step on a landmine? Or better yet, in front of a Claymore?

Chelsea drags Natty over, tags Piper, and Piper scoops Natty to SLAM her! Then Piper scoops Chelsea to SLAM her onto Natty! Chelsea wants to go again, so Piper scoops and SLAMS her onto Natty again! Nox protests, the ref keeps her from getting involved, and then Chelsea tries to scoop Piper? Yeah, not that easy… Piper scoops Chelsea to SLAM her onto Natty a third time! Cover but the ref is busy telling Chelsea to go. The ref finally sees the cover, TWO! Piper keeps cool and she HIP DROPS Natty down! Piper taunts Nox, keeps Natty from Nox, but Natty and Nox reach out! Piper reels Natty in, short arm LARIAT!

Piper tells the rf to deal with Nox but the ref knocks to watch Chelsea. Chelsea plays innocent but Piper bumps Natty off buckles. Piper tags Chelsea, and Chelsea RAMS into Natty! And again! Tag back to Piper and Raw returns to single picture. Piper cobra clutches and ripcords so Chelsea can SLAP Natty, then Piper CLOBBERS her! Fans rally but Chelsea drags Natty back to the corner.

Winners: Chelsea Green & Piper Niven, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions)

Once again, Piper does all the hard work to keep these belts on her and Chelsea. Chelsea smiles and celebrates, but will there come a time when even Piper isn’t enough to save this team?

 

Jey Uso talks with Randy Orton backstage.

Jey doesn’t want any trouble. Just wanted to find Orton before Orton found him. Is that so? Yeah. Jey wants to thank Orton for having their back at WarGames. And if it means anything, Jey heard about those receipts. He is sorry how everything went down back in the day. Cody gave Jey a second chance here on Raw, Jey is trying to do right by everyone. He wants to leave the past in the past. Orton understands that. Listen, Uce, Orton has been watching. He’s seen how these past few months, hell maybe longer than that, but Jey has had Cody’s back. Jey has had a lot of people’s backs. Cody trusts Jey, those other guys trust Jey, that goes a long way.

So as far as Orton is concerned, bygones are bygones. But Orton is handling unfinished business with The Bloodline. So long as Jey is out, they’re good. They shake hands on it and Jey wishes Orton luck. Orton thanks Jey, and now he has one less name on the list. But will Jey’s name just be replaced by Dirty Dom’s? That main event happens next!

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

Jackie Redmond is with The Man, and notes that just 48 hours ago, she was in her own WarGames match in Chicago, and came out the winner. How is she feeling now after such an epic battle? Well, she feels like she went to war in an epic battle, and she hopes she looks it. But Saturday was a night about making amends. There is a thin line between love and hate, and she never knows when one switches from one side to the other. But enough about that, she wants to talk tonight! The Man has come around to Nashville. And there’s a couple fights on the horizon, one more pressing than the other. Becky heads out, what fight could she mean?

 

Randy Orton VS Dominik Mysterio w/ JD McDonagh!

Raw returns and Orton makes his entrance. The bell rings and fans cheer on Orton. Orton and Dom circle, they tie up, and Orton powers Dom to a corner. The ref counts, Orton pushes Dom around and lets off. Dom sucker punches Orton! Fans chant “Who’s Your Daddy?” Dom runs, but gets run over! Dom bails out and regroups with McDonagh. McDonagh coaches Dom up, Dom rushes back in, but Orton fires haymakers! Orton has Dom on ropes, UPPERCUTS him, then whips Dom to back drop! Dom writhes from the crash landing and fans fire up as Raw goes picture in picture.

Dom bails out, wants mercy, but Orton storms up to the ropes. Dom gets away, so Orton strikes his pose. Dom wants a mic? No, there’s no time for that. Dom storms around, complains about something, maybe he’s missing his Mami. Orton smirks as Dom keeps pacing around but the ring count starts. Orton goes out after Dom to CLOBBER him! Orton chases McDonagh away while mocking his bad neck. Dom staggers up but Orton UPPERCUTS him down! Orton brings Dom around, Dom throws hands, but Orton SMACKS him off the desk! Orton puts Dom in and then stalks him, to trip him and have the leg.

Orton brings Dom around to stomp him in the stomach! Orton digs his heel in, then stomps a leg! Dom writhes and flounders to a corner but Orton is on him again. Orton whips corner to corner hard and Dom bounces off buckles. Orton drags Dom to a cover, TWO, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Orton drags Dom up while fans again chant “Who’s Your Daddy?” Orton TOSSES Dom out, storms out after him, and McDonagh hobbles away. Orton stands Dom up, to back- NO, Dom slips out of the back suplex, CLUBS Orton and RAMS him into steel steps! Fans boo while Orton writhes, Dom is after that repaired back and shoulder! Dom puts Orton in the ring, covers, TWO! Dom is annoyed by the count but the ref says his count is fair. Dom clamps on a chinlock, he squeezes Orton’s neck, but Orton fights up. Fans rally and Orton throws body shots. Dom CLUBS Orton, whips him to a corner, but Orton comes back to CLBOBER him!

Orton rallies on Dom, ducks him and SPIN POWERSLAMS! Fans fire up with Orton and he is feeling it! Orton puts Dom in the ropes, brings him out, and he grins at McDonagh as he hits the DRAPING DDT! Fans fire up again and Orton soaks it up. Because Orton’s hearing those voices! McDonagh drags Dom to safety! Fans boo, McDonagh asks what they’re all looking at. Wait, Jelly Roll is up front! Fans cheer as Jelly stands up. Jelly and JD argue, and Jelly shoves JD! Fans fire up as now Dom gets mad! So Jelly shoves Dom! Orton high-fives Jelly, goes back for Dom, and hits that BACK SUPLEX TO THE DESK!

Dom writhes and flops off the desk but fans want that one more time! Orton drags Dom up, brings him back around, and indeed, another BACK SUPLEX TO THE DESK! Orton puts Dom in, but McDonagh gets on the apron. Orton gets him for a DRAPING DDT! McDonagh writhes, Dom DROPKICKS Orton onto ropes! Dom dials it up, 619! Dom hurries up top, FROG SPLASH FLOPS!

The Viper had a successful return to the ring at WarGames, and he has another successful return here tonight! Dom & McDonagh retreat, will Mami not be happy about this?

 

CM Punk is here!

Nashville fires up one more time and sings along with Cult of Personality. Punk goes to the ring, and gets a mic as the fans chant his name. Punk then says, “Looks like Hell just froze over.” Fans cheer that! And Punk means that as in, this is him, standing in a WWE ring, on Monday Night Raw, with a mic in his hand. He doesn’t mean that apparently, a Blackhawks fan is actually getting love inside the Predators’ territory. Sorry, had to say it. He’s gotta be himself. And lately, he’s been feeling a little more like himself ever since Saturday. That is a career highlight for him, and he’s been trying to come up with the words to explain exactly how he feels.

He has two words that he’s afraid to say. Not because they’re not true. It’s because he’s scared of how true they actually are. It is a bit corner, it won’t sound like CM Punk, but he’s a changed man. Once upon a time, an American Dream taught him that as long as you speak from the heart, you cannot go wrong, because it is the truth. So this is the truth: “I’m home.” Fans cheer that! Punk says he has come back to this familiar place, and he didn’t know how he was gonna react, he didn’t know how it was gonna go, but it has made him feel like himself again. Because this is where Punk belongs! This is home! And he’s been gone for TEN YEARS!

And yet for those ten years, no one ever forgot him, even when he maybe wanted to forget himself. And that is powerful stuff. The fans are all powerful. A bunch of continents, countries, arenas all over the world, people watching at home, they never stopped chanting his name. The fans chant it now! Punk says the Voiceless found their voice, and he couldn’t be more proud. He heard them, that is why he is back. Because he loves them! He loves them! He loves them, missed them, missed all of this, and wishes he could say he didn’t have to leave. But once upon a time, a Wise Man told him that for him to get everything he wants out of this place, he’d have to leave it and come back.

Hate to say it, but the Wise Man was right. But that is why Punk is back. He wants to get everything he needs out of this place. He is back for the fans because the fans are home. Fans cheer that! Saturday was an amazing moment, Monday is an amazing moment. He wants the words to explain how it feels, but in front of and behind the camera, it’s nothing but love, nothing but hugs. It feels like a family reunion. Everybody back there is happy to see Punk, a few kissed him, it is all “Welcome back, welcome home, we’ve missed you, we’re happy to see you. How’s AJ?” And AJ lee is fabulous and sends her regards. Fans cheer that most of all!

Punk says everyone has welcomed him back with open arms. Except… Some are afraid. They’re afraid of the truth, of what they don’t understand, but Punk understands. Everything he has ever wanted has always been right here. The competition, week in and week out, competes to be the Best in the World, but the Best in the World hasn’t been here in almost ten years. Punk understands being afraid. They’re afraid he’s set the bar to an unobtainable level, that he has the brass ring in his back pocket. That the most dangerous and controversial, feared man in this business, walked in and there’s nothing they can do about it.

Some are afraid that tomorrow, they’ll have to come to terms with how their best efforts at being the Best in the World in this ring, on this mic, even at commentary, isn’t just false, but a lie! Because the Best in the World is back, standing in this ring, live and in living color, in Nashville, Tennessee on a Monday night, and his name is… C M PUNK!! He’s baaack~! “I’m not here to make friends, I’m here to make money.” Will Punk prove he is still the Best in the World? Or will that be hard to do even for him?


My Thoughts:

A great Raw to follow Survivor Series, especially with everything they had to build upon. A touch disappointed Tag Team Turmoil wasn’t pretty much the entire commercial free first hour to give everyone a lot of time, and rather surprised that the Creeds won out. But at the same time, not that surprised, given that DIY and Imperium still have to settle things. But I’m a little surprised they didn’t give New Day a shot at Judgment Day, that feud is probably simmering for WrestleMania season. Creeds can still have a good feud with Judgment Day, Ivy can even step to Rhea, but I don’t see them winning the titles.

Great promos throughout the night with the winners and losers of WarGames. Orton and Rhea interacting was really fun, and of course Dom gets in trouble because of it. Great main event match from them with McDonagh of course there to also get whooped. And also good interaction of Jey and Orton to bypass Jey VS Orton happening. Orton is going strong, but I don’t expect him to just shoot up to the world title. Maybe he has a good showing in the Royal Rumble, but I bet he alters course to go after like the Intercontinental Championship and Gunther. Gunther had a good promo with Imperium and also with Miz, that’ll be a fun rematch before Gunther gets on his Road to WrestleMania.

Speaking of Rumble, great promo from Cody to not just declare for Rumble, but to also put WarGames into a heartfelt perspective. And then Nakamura going after Cody, great move there to help them both build momentum to Rumble. Awesome promo stuff with Rollins and McIntyre to give McIntyre’s Heel turn more heat, I busted up laughing that it was Jey getting his shot against Rollins next. McIntyre and Sami also have a great promo, and that rematch of the two of them is going to be great, too. And I just about died laughing during R-Truth’s promo with the Judgment Day. What a great way to bring Truth back, he is a national treasure.

Also really good promo from Becky, and maybe, just maybe, she’s saying she’s gonna go after Rhea now? Thought it was gonna be Nia, but she and Zoey had a good promo and match, maybe Nia has to get through the others first, meaning Shayna is next. Really good women’s tag title match but that could’ve been a touch better. Something seemed a touch off, who knows what. But Chelsea & Piper retaining is fine, because this is all leading to Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn taking those belts back. I kinda wished something had happened while we lingered on Chelsea smiling and waving after the win. Maybe they start on that build this Friday.

Awesome stuff from Bronson VS Ivar, though the crowd didn’t get into it right away. Great move to have it be a count out draw and then a brawl, they’re definitely gonna up the ante next time. And then CM Punk of course had the closing moment tonight. I had another laugh when Punk said he was “back home” in the WWE, perhaps out of surprise and how that buries his time in AEW. But whatever any of us think about Punk, from egotistical to hypocritical to emotional to passionate, he’s back, but also, this is it. He messes up here, he is done. He can’t go back to AEW, likewise can’t go to AEW’s friends like NJPW, and he clearly doesn’t want to go anywhere “small time” like Impact or NWA. He needs to keep it under control this time or lose whatever’s left of his legacy.

My Score: 8.8/10

Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT! Hobbs flounders against railing but the fans fire up as Sammy stalks him. Sammy tosses Hobbs the chair to KICK it into him! Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

Hobbs talks more trash, stands Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into another corner! Collision returns to single picture as Sammy crawls around. Hobbs looms over Sammy again, slaps him around, and then whips him into another corner! Hobbs runs up, Sammy dodges and Hobbs hits buckles! Sammy uses the corner to help in the torture rack! Fans fire up as Sammy carries Hobbs, and GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, TWO?!? Hobbs survives and Sammy is shocked! The fans rally as Sammy hurries to find himself something more. Sammy takes a monitor from the timekeeper!

Sammy brings the equipment into the ring, MONITOR SHOT!! But that’s not enough so Sammy looks around outside. He finds another table! The fans are thunderous as table number three is put in the ring. Sammy hurries after Hobbs but Hobbs LARIATS Sammy inside-out! Hobbs storms around, grabs the table for his own and sets that up near a corner. Hobbs goes back for Sammy as the fans rally up, and Hobbs hauls Sammy up. Sammy JAWBREAKERS back! Hobbs wobbles, but Sammy SUPERKICKS! Hobbs still wobbles, so Sammy springboards and FLYING- NO, Hobbs catches him again! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, TWO!!!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy! Sammy climbs to the second highest rung, takes aim, and shoutout to Jeff Hardy! SUPER SWANTON BOMB through the tables!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy. Sammy gets Hobbs up and into the ring and the fans fire up again. “This is Awesome!” as Sammy takes table number three and sets it back up! Hobbs flounders, Sammy pushes him onto that table and punches him down. Sammy then goes to the corner, which is comparatively short, but Hobbs shoves the ref into Sammy!! Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

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

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The American Dragon survives the Japanese legend, and Eddie says he gives Bryan his due. Eddie’s problem with Bryan was never about his talent, the problem is Bryan’s problem with Eddie. Bryan gives Jun his due by shaking his hand. But then Bryan flips Eddie off! So Jun SLAPS Bryan! Jun doesn’t like the disrespect shown and Bryan apologizes.

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

The Rock has a message!

“Oh, I know, everybody wants to know what’s happening down in Perth, Australia. It’s gonna be this weekend, right? Is that right? Yeah, The Rock knows when it’s happening, y’know why? Because they kept asking The Rock, ‘Rock, will you go down to Perth? Will ya come down to Perth, Australia?’ Listen, The Rock can’t be there in Perth, he wishes he could be there in Perth, he’s gonna be there in spirit and that’s all that matters. The People’s Champ’s spirit is gonna be there in Perth. But here’s who else is gonna be there in Perth: Grayson Waller, doing the Waller Effect. It’s that show, it’s a big show.

“It’s a big show here in the states, and it’s an even bigger show down there in Australia? Y’know why? Y’know why, Dumbo? Because Australia is his country, it’s his home country, the people are gonna go crazy for him. But here’s what’s happening. Here’s the BS that’s happening now down in Australia. Cody Rhodes and his little girlfriend, Seth Rollins, are gonna go on the Waller Effect. Here’s the thing, I need you, and you, and this goof holding the camera and this one holding the microphone over here, I need all of you guys to make sure that Perth knows this some BS happening.

“And if those guys, meaning Cody and his little girlfriend, Seth, if they start talking trash, let The Rock know. Tell The Rock. Because here’s what’s gonna happen: The Rock is gonna slap the piss out of both of them, just like that. As a matter of fact, if those two talk trash, The Rock will fly down there to Perth before that interview is over and he’ll do it. Don’t wonder why The Rock can make it that quick, The Rock makes magic happen. Do you understand? All right, that’s all The Rock has to say about Perth. Perth, Australia, get ready because the WWE is coming. Let The Rock know if those two jabronies talk trash. IF YA SA-MELLLL~… what The Rock… is cooking.”

At least, mostly because Bate knows! Bate tells the ref about it, so the ref EJECTS Dom!! The fans fire up but Dom throws a fit! Extra refs come out to usher Dom away and fans say, “Hey hey hey!

Austin Theory is here?

“The 150 Million Hit Man” is in the ring on the set of the Grayson Waller Effect and he welcomes us to Austin Theory Live. The fans boo but Theory says, “G’day, mate!” He wants to talk to Australia about vegemite. It’s DISGUSTING! But that’s just a snack here, right? So then he had a real Australian meal. He had himself a Blooming Onion from Outback Steakhouse! Oh, they don’t like that? Well alright. Then he’ll introduce to us the Moment Maker, the Aussie Icon, Australia’s own, his boy, Grayson Waller! The fans cheer Waller as he makes his entrance, and he sees UFC fighter, Tai Tuivasa, in the crowd.

Waller walks up, they shake hands, and they both get the golden shoes for the Shoey! The fans cheer as Tai chugs it all down, then Waller joins Theory in the ring. Waller takes the mic to welcome us to the Grayson Waller Effect. The fans cheer, and Waller says this might be the greatest day of his life! And he wants us to do one thing before the greatest GWE of all time. “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” The fans cheer and Waller says time to get to it. The biggest story in sports entertainment involve his two guests tonight.

First, the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The fans cheer and sing along as the Visionary makes his entrance, wearing a suit that is purposefully baggy, and also has cords on it. Rollins revels in the singing, which bores Theory, but then Rollins takes a bow. Waller says his second guest is the winner of the 2024 Royal Rumble, “the man who can thank the ineffectiveness of the American education system for not being able to finish a story,” The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! Cody makes his entrance in a normal suit, and now fans sing with Cody’s song, “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody gets an extra big pyro as he gets in the ring!

Cody and Rollins sit with Waller while the fans chant for Cody. Cody asks Perth, “What do we wanna talk about?” Waller says hold on, this is his show. What HE wants to talk about is to acknowledge their Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief appreciates that. But Rollins, Waller doesn’t care about who wins the Chamber, he wants to know who Rollins wants to face. Oh, well, the Chamber is stacked, who knows who wins, but he has a scoop. Oh? Here we go! Yeah, Rollins has an inside track, some secret info. Does Perth wanna know a secret? “YES!” Alright, then. Rollins… is just days away from being medically cleared to compete!

The fans like the sound of that! Rollins says whoever wins the Chamber will get a crack at Rollins’ World Heavyweight Champion. And newsflash: they don’t stand a chance. Because it’s WrestleMania 40, the biggest Mania of all time! The world is gonna sing Rollins’ song, “WHOA~ OHH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins will do what only Rollins can, put on a show like nobody else! Because he is a Visionary, he is a Revolutionary, he is SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! Big pop. Rollins sits back down and Waller says cool story, bro.

Now, Cody, we had the opportunity to have the biggest Mania main event of all time: Roman Reigns VS The Rock. The fans boo and Rollins sticks out his tongue. Waller asks if Cody was being selfish taking that away from the fans. The fans chant “Rocky Sucks! Rocky Sucks!” Cody doesn’t want it twisted, he is a fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And if The Rock were here, The Rock would probably call Cody a candy ass, prattle on about rooty poo, insult Cody. What is it he calls Cody’s fans again? Waller knows, it’s Cody Crybabies. Theory claps and Cody says yes, Cody Crybabies.

But Cody wants to ask Perth: Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer and Cody wants to double check, the pyro got to his hearing. Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer even louder! Rollins says yes, seems there are. The fans chant for Cody again, and Cody says one thing The Rock wouldn’t wanna talk about is the conversation that led them to this point, why Cody was going to step away from that WrestleMania main event just to step right back in. Waller says hold on, he’s talking about The People’s Champion! Cody does what he’s told. Oh, People’s Champion?

That is a grand and lofty title, one you can’t self-appoint. Maybe at one point, The Rock was The People’s Champ. But to Cody, to be the People’s Champ, you have to actually be around the people! The fans cheer that, and Cody says that while Seth had an announcement, here’s one from Cody. Cody tells The Rock that he indeed slapped Cody across the face. And at WrestleMania 40, Cody faces Roman in the main event. But until then, the card is wide open! So let’s make it official! Cody wants The Rock 1v1, any time, any place!! The fans fire up for that and Rollins stands up to stand with Cody. Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!”

Rollins tells Cody and Perth, let’s cut the head off the snake once and for all! Rollins admires that challenge, but when it comes to The Bloodline, we all know that there is no such thing as 1v1. So if and when The Rock decides to take Cody up on this challenge, just know that Cody won’t be fighting that battle alone. Waller says there you have it! Another scoop on the Grayson Waller Effect, the greatest talk show in WWE! Theory says hold on there. Cody thinks he’s gonna face The Rock? Is that what you think? IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK! Rollins laughs at Theory’s pretty decent Rock imitation.

Yeah, it was good, but here’s more. Finally…! Austin Theory has come to Perth, Australia, to finish his story. Rollins laughs more and says this is good. But hey, does he have the big one? Y’know, the one. Jacket off, show ’em what it’s all about. Theory takes his jacket off, “IF YA SMELLLLL-” Rollins THROWS Theory into the Waller sign! CODY CUTTER! Waller is stunned as Theory is down and out! Waller says okay, fine, and he backs off. Rollins lines up the shot, to CURB STOMP Theory! The Visionary and the American Nightmare show they make a powerful combo, will they be just what the WWE Universe needs to finally The Bloodline’s tyranny?

 

World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match: Randy Orton VS Drew McIntyre VS LA Knight VS Bobby Lashley VS Kevin Owens VS Logan Paul!

As the Visionary just said, he is 100% and ready for whoever comes out of this match! The Viper, the Scottish Terminator, the Mega Star, the All Mighty, the Prizefighter and the Maverick are just as ready, but who proves they are worthy by making it through the Chamber?

The fans boo as Styles then takes the chair back from the refs, and puts Knight in a STYLES CLASH onto the chair! McIntyre crawls over to cover, McIntyre ELIMINATES Knight!!

Fans boo more, Styles just screwed Knight and the rest of the field benefits from it! But everyone else is still down, Orton clutching his back. Kevin and Logan find each other, and the fans fire up as they brawl it out! Kevin sends Logan into chains, then AOI SHODOU!!! Kevin leaves Logan behind to aim at McIntyre and Orton. Kevin runs to CANNONBALL McIntyre! CANNONBALL for Orton! Kevin goes up and aims, SWANTON BOMB for Orton!! Cover, TWO!! Orton stays in this despite the pain, but Kevin just goes back to Logan. Kevin stomps Logan down, goes up another corner, and he SWANTON BOMBS onto McIntyre’s knees!

Kevin sputters as McIntyre saves himself there. The ref checks everyone, they’re all okay to continue, and the fans rally back up. Logan sits up and fans boo.

It’s been a wonderful night. And I wanna let you know the attendance here tonight, the official attendance: 52,590!” The fans cheer that!

 

Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley VS Nia Jax!

Australia is Mami’s home, and this truly be the biggest moment in her career. However, that’s all the more motivation for the Irresistible Force to ruin it! Will the challenger A-Nia-late the champion? Or will the Eradicator still be the most dominant woman in the WWE?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly on top!

The bell rings and the fans are thunderous already as Rhea stares Nia down. Rhea smiles as the fans are all behind her. Nia and Rhea circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock.

Nia stomps Rhea, tells Rhea to say “Mommy,” but Rhea throws body shots! Nia HEADBUTTS Rhea down! Nia torture racks Rhea and bends her!

Fans boo as Nia marches around with Rhea on her back, but Rhea fights around! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! The fans fire up as Rhea has Nia in the body scissors, too!

That was the biggest Riptide ever, and it washes Nia away! With this win, Rhea not only proves she’s the most dominant woman in WWE, but she proves everything she’s done to get here was worth it! Mami gets her pyro and celebrates with her family, but will she have an even bigger moment at WrestleMania 40 facing down The Man?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Elimination Chamber with basically nothing bad to say. Great promo from The Rock that was featured in the Kickoff show, and great Grayson Waller Effect segment for Cody & Rollins to respond. Great beat down of Theory, too, that was fun. Really good Women’s Tag Team Championship match for the Kickoff, though it was clear The Kabuki Warriors were retaining. Indi at least got to perform in her home country, but I don’t feel she and Candice circle back to the titles in time for Mania. Another team probably steps up, or maybe multiple teams, and they’re the ones that face Asuka & Kairi.

Speaking of tag titles, awesome match from Priest & Finn VS “New Catch Republic.” That had some real NXT TakeOver vibes with the near falls and false finishes, but I figured Judgment Day was returning. Given the story with R-Truth, it just seems more fitting that The Awesome Truth steps up and wins big at Mania. And in case you missed it, Truth went to Austria instead of Australia, because he is a comedic genius. I am going to love all the shenanigans and misunderstands Truth has once he and Miz are the Undisputed Tag Team Champions.

Awesome stuff out of both Chamber matches tonight, though WWE always does pretty good with these in my experience. And even though it seemed a bit obvious to me that Becky and Drew were each running the gauntlet in the Chamber, I feel they did a better job disguising things in Drew winning than Becky. Tiffany eliminating Naomi was a good move, as she and Naomi can feud. Tiffany is new to main roster, Naomi has returned to WWE, a feud can help RawDown fans learn/relearn who they are while we get great acrobatic matches out of them. Liv and Bianca being in the final three with Becky also worked, they all have stories involving Rhea, a return to Mania, or both.

As for what Bianca does now without a clear path to Mania, I’m thinking she could get in on that tag title story. She has beef with DMG CTRL, and if Dakota really is on Bayley’s side, maybe Dakota and Bianca can be a team? Not saying they’d win, there’s a chance DMG CTRL makes everyone think Dakota’s still on their side, and that helps DMG CTRL retain, but it’d be good story. And in the Men’s Chamber, I did not expect Styles to screw Knight over like that, and I did not expect Logan to screw over Orton like that. Kevin was great wanting after Logan so badly, and I don’t think their story is over yet, but maybe they add Orton to the mix? A Triple Threat protects all three so that Logan can lose the belt while someone else takes the pin, or Logan is opportunistic and steals a pin to retain.

And of course, an awesome main event. Rhea of course won out but she and Nia did great, really made Rhea look like the underdog champ that then overcame her toughest challenge, and now she’s rolling towards that match with Becky. Both have done so well that Mami VS The Man could go either way, and I wouldn’t be surprised either way. They’re both worthy of the top title, so it really depends on who is set up for the Women’s World Championship for after Mania. Maybe Jade Cargill? That’d be quite the moment on whatever night of Mania to have Jade walk out there and confront the champion and set things up for Backlash in France.

My Score: 9/10
