PLAY BY PLAY

Seth Rollins is here!

The Mohegan Sun Arena fires up as the Visionary, the Revolutionary, the World FREAKIN’ Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring. Fans sing for him as he gets the mic and smiles. “Mohegan Sun Arenaaa~! Welcome to Monday… Night… Rolliiins~!” And here he is! The Visionary! The Revolutionary! Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! And yes, he is still your World Heavyweight Champion. Now normally, he’d come out here, talk about himself, but tonight, he is here to talk about two other people. Two people he needs to say thank you to. First, thank you to Drew McIntyre.

Fans are torn but Rollins says Saturday, he and Drew beat the hell out of each other! It’s why Rollins isn’t 100% right now. But it is also the reason he’s a little bit better before Saturday. The real reason he’s giving props to Drew is because Drew is a man of his word. He said he was not in bed with Judgment Day, and at Crown Jewel, Judgment Day did not get involved in their match. Now after the match, Damian Priest tried to cash in his Money in the Bank contract on Rollins, which brings Rollins to the second person, but he wants to thank him in person. Sami Zayn, if you’re back there, come on out and join the party, baybay!

Fans fire up as Sami’s music hits! Sami goes to the ring, gets himself a mic and fans chant for “SAMI! SAMI!” Rollins says he half expected to see Sami with Priest’s briefcase he hijacked. But Rollins wants to guess what happened: Sami showed up at the building and Adam Pearce made Sami return the briefcase. Sami says that is a really good guess. That’s exactly what happened. Well Rollins will cut to the chase. Saturday after his match, he was in a pretty bad way. Rollins could’ve handled Priest on his own but he maybe could not have. So he just wants to say… Thank you, Sami. Fans cheer that!

Rollins continues to say that since Saturday, he has been thinking on how to repay Sami. Sami stops Rollins there. Sami wants to be honest, he is glad it helped Rollins out and he appreciates that Rollins appreciates it, but that’s not why Sami did what he did. Sami has been dealing with Judgment Day for months and months, hearing about how they run Monday Night Raw, which is almost true. They hold almost every title to hold on Raw, except for one: the World Heavyweight Championship. And if Priest cashes in, if he gets that title, we are no longer dealing with just The Judgment Day, we’d be dealing with Bloodline 2.0.

Sami has been fighting too hard for too long to let that happen. He meant what he said last week. As long as there is breath in his body, Sami will fight Judgment Day and make sure they do NOT run this show! Rollins says yeah! Sami Zayn, everybody! This is what Rollins has always loved about Sami. No matter what, Sami stands up for what he believes in, what he thinks is right. It doesn’t matter if he’s outnumbered, 3v1, 5v1, A MILLION against one, Sami stands up for it, and Rollins digs that conviction. But here’s the thing, in life, sometimes, people like Sami don’t get what they deserve.

Judgment Day does not run Raw. Rollins runs Raw. And as long as Rollins is World Heavyweight Champion, that MITB contract isn’t the only way to get an opportunity at the title. Now the reason Rollins knew Pearce made Sami give the briefcase back is because after Sami left Pearce’s office, Rollins went in there. And the reason why is the same reason Rollins wanted Sami to come out here tonight. “Sami Zayn, you have got yourself a World Heavyweight Championship match! It’s waiting for ya, baby! It’s got your name on it! All you gotta do… is say when.” Fans fire up for that, and Sami is really taken by surprise.

Sami says to be honest, he didn’t expect that. He’s learned the hard way how hard it is to get a title match, And the first thing he’s thinking is if he wins the World Heavyweight Championship… WHEN he wins the World Heavyweight Championship…! Because mark his words, he WILL win that World Heavyweight Championship! But when he does, Sami wants to beat a champion that is not compromised. Rollins, no disrespect, they go way back, but everyone knows, Rollins isn’t 100%. Oh, cut the crap, Sami. He’s not 100%? Is SAMI 100%?

They go back a long time, they’ve both been doing this for decades. Guys like them are NEVER 100% but that NEVER stops them from GIVING 100%! And so Rollins says again, “Sami Zayn, there is a World Heavyweight Championship with your name on it! Just say when!” Fans fire up again and Sami repeats, “Just say when?” Sami looks around and the fans fire up even more in anticipation. Then Sami can’t think of a better place or better time than RIGHT HERE TONIGHT!! Sami holds out a hand, Rollins chuckles and smiles, and the fans go wild with “YES! YES! YES!” Rollins shakes Sami’s hand!!

Tonight was already big, but it just got that much bigger! Will Rollins regret giving Sami a match so soon? Or will Sami gladly put that golden target on his back?

 

Judgment Day talks backstage.

Finn Balor says there’s evidence about the Egyptian Pyramids that could make them older than we think. Dirty Dom says, “Speaking of old, I could watch Logan Paul beat my deadbeat dad for the US title over and over. But, I could watch Mami’s victory at Crown Jewel even more.” Rhea says Dom knows better than anyone- WAIT! Priest barges in and asks if anyone else just saw that. Priest had to go to Pearce to get his briefcase back, but the guy who screwed him out of a perfect cash-in just gets handed a match? Finn can’t stand Sami! JD McDonagh says things didn’t go Priest’s way, and that’s rough- YEAH IT IS, SMART GUY!

Wait, did JD buy a Priest merch shirt? Rhea calms things down and says Priest has this. Yeah, he does got this! He and Finn will handle New Day and show everyone who runs this! Finn agrees and they head out. Will The Prince & The Punisher pulverize the Power of Positivity as an example to the rest of the roster? Or will Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods get themselves a win over the W, W, E, World, Tag, Team, CHAMPIONS~?

Finn Balor & Damian Priest VS The New Day!

The Undisputed Tag Team Champions just pinned TWELVE-TIME Tag Team Champions! Does this mean Finn & Priest are THE best tag team of all time?

 

Backstage interview with Drew McIntyre.

Jackie Redmond is there as McIntyre arrives, and wants as comment on Crown Jewel. It wasn’t the result he wanted, but what is next for him? The Scottish Warrior sighed, then got back in his car to drive away. Is he sticking around or going back to the hotel? What will it take for McIntyre’s fortunes to turn around?

 

Shinsuke Nakamura VS Akira Tozawa w/ The Alpha Academy!

The King of Strong Style is seeking someone to “awaken” his inner self so that he can reach his final form. The Stamina Monster wants to prove himself a worthy member of the Alpha Academy by defeating the strongest around. Will this be a two birds, one stone situation? Or will Tozawa just not measure up to Nakamura?

Raw returns as Tozawa makes his entrance, Coach Gable and “Otis-senpai” with him. The bell rings, Tozawa runs in but into a KNEE! And then Nakamura drags Tozawa up, for an INVERTED- NO, Tozawa lands out of the Exploder and says, “ARIGATO~!” Tozawa dodges, and mocks Nakamura’s “C’MON~!” Nakamura falls for it, running into a kick! Tozawa spins, slides under, gets around and SNAP GERMANS! Bridging cover, TWO! Nakamura bails out but Tozawa builds speed to DIVE! The Tozawa Torpedo takes Nakamura down!

Tozawa RANAS Nakamura to another cover, TWO! Nakamura BOOTS Tozawa down! And now he’s mad! KINSHASA!! Cover, Nakamura wins!

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall

Tozawa put up more of a fight than Nakamura expected, but it still wasn’t enough to take him down. Will Nakamura prove himself the most dangerous man on Raw? Wait, Otis gets in the ring now! And he shimmies and shakes as he takes off the shirt! Fans fire up but Nakamura doesn’t take him seriously. Nakamura leaves and fans boo, but will the King soon be taken off the board by the Rook of Alpha Academy?

 

Natalya speaks.

“Opportunity. We tell everyone, ‘Create your own legacy, be undeniable, and take what you believe belongs to you.’ That’s all I’ve ever done.” The Queen of Harts watched what her family did, and has put that legacy on her back. She’s seen the “next big thing” come and go time and time again. As for her, she’s still standing. And truth is, Natty is the most accomplished woman in the history of the WWE. Will Natty add to that legacy here in tonight’s Battle Royal?

 

Adam Pearce speaks.

“During his record-setting reign, Der Ring General, Gunther, has made the Intercontinental Championship one of the most sought-after titles in all of WWE. His championship matches are must-see events. And with that in mind, finding his next challenger is of the highest importance. I have selected four superstars and given them the right to fight to be Gunther’s next challenger. First, The Miz. After Gunther and Miz’s heated altercation during MizTV, I simply couldn’t deny Miz, a former eight-time Intercontinental Champion himself, the opportunity to add to his hall of fame résumé.

“Which brings me to Big Bronson Reed. The massive Bronson Reed took Gunther to the limit during the Raw Season Premiere, and I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind seeing that again. And speaking of massive, we also have Ivar. Ivar has stepped into singles competition, and has been nothing short of impressive. After his victory over Kofi Kingston in last month’s Viking Rules match, it’s high time to see if Ivar can continue his momentum towards capturing his first championship in WWE.

“And finally, Ricochet. The man that Gunther defeated over 500 days ago to become Intercontinental Champion, Ricochet has only improved since then. And I was impressed by his performance last week against Dirty Dominik Mysterio, so I think it’s time to see if Ricochet can reclaim the championship he once proudly war. And now, these men will compete in a can’t-miss Fatal 4 Way match. It’ll be a clash of styles and a battle until the end, but when it’s done, we will have our next challenger for Gunther and the Intercontinental Championship.” And that match is coming up, after the break!

 

Adam Pearce finds Seth Rollins backstage.

Pearce wants to be sure Rollins actually wants to do this title match tonight. Rollins tells “Pearcy, we’ve been over this a million times.” Rollins appreciates the concern, but he’s born to run. Rollins heads out, Pearce wishes him luck, but will this workhorse fall apart as he runs the race?

 

WWE Intercontinental Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 4 Way: The Miz VS Ricochet VS Bronson Reed VS Ivar w/ Sarah Logan!

Adam Pearce just sang the praises of all four men in this match, but only one can face Gunther! Will the champion’s next challenger be AWESOME? The One and Only? A Colossal Aussie? Or Valhalla’s chosen warrior?

Raw returns as Ricochet makes his entrance. The bell rings and the smaller Miz and Ricochet rush in to DROPKICK the bigger Bronson and Ivar! Fans fire up as Miz and Ricochet fire hands in the corners, but they both get shoved back! They bump into each other, the big men run in but Miz and Ricochet both move, Bronson and Ivar COLLIDE! Both big men stay up, so Ricochet and Miz BOOT them! Miz then rushes Ricochet, but Ricochet gets around to waistlock. Ricochet whips, Miz reverses but Ricochet rolls off his back, rolls under the lariat and rolls back to RANA! Then DROPKICK! Miz bails out and fans fire up as Ricochet DROPKICKS Bronson!

Ivar HEEL KICKS Ricochet down! Cover, TWO! Ivar scowls but he drags Ricochet up. Ivar reels Ricochet in, suplexes, but Ricochet slips free to shove. Miz slips under but Ivar stays up, only for Miz to avoid the hip drop! But Ricochet PENALTY KICKS Miz! And HANDSPRING KICKS Bronson! Ivar SEATED SENTONS Ricochet! Fans rally while Gunther is watching, rather amused. Ivar storms up on Ricochet, drags him up, and bumps him off buckles. Ivar hoists Ricochet up top but Ricochet BOOTS him away! Then sunset flips! But Ivar drags Ricochet up with a deadlift suplex! And hangs him out to dry!

Bronson’s back and he SUPERKICKS Ivar! Bronson then jumps on the ropes to LAUNCH Ricochet into giving Ivar a RANA! Ivar tumbles out, Ricochet still has a rough landing of his own, and the ref checks him. Miz gets in to RANA Bronson!? Miz can do that?! Fans fire up and Miz runs at Ricochet. Ricochet gest around, rolls Miz up, TWO! Miz gets up, swings, but Ricochet handsprings! Miz catches Ricochet to a waistlock, but Ricochet victory rolls! TWO! Miz has it now, TWO! Miz staggers to ropes, comes back, but Ricochet ducks the boot! DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! Fans fire up while both men crawl, and Ricochet stands.

Ricochet runs, Miz dodges, and he WRECKS Ivar! But Bronson DECKS Miz! Ricochet steadies himself to build speed and FLY! But the big men catch him! And BOMB him into Miz! Fans fire up as the big men now stare down. Bronson and Ivar run in to SPLASH Ricochet and Miz! Miz sputters, and now Ivar and Bronson run at each other! DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide! Fans are thunderous as all four men are down and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Bronson has Miz down, but Ricochet springboards in! Bronson dodges, Ricochet keeps moving and he springboards again, into Bronson’s arms! Bronson SQUASHES Miz in the corner using Ricochet, then he POWERSLAMS Ricochet! Bronson SPLASHES Miz in the corner, swings on Ivar, but Ivar ELBOWS back! Ivar goes up with Miz as his target! But Bronson ROCKS Ivar first! And goes up after him! Ricochet and Miz both see this and worry. They both hurry over to add on! TOWER OF DOOM~! Fans are thunderous for the Double Powerbomb Superplex combo! And Gunther actually smiles!

Ricochet covers Ivar, Mix breaks it! Miz covers Ivar, Ricochet breaks it! They argue about who has had their time, and Ricochet shoves. Miz nods, and then ROCKS Ricochet! The haymakers start flying between these two, and Ricochet UPPERCUTS! Ricochet storms up, whips but Miz reverses. Miz runs in, A-LIST LARIAT! Miz pushes Ricochet down, Bronson runs up but Miz GAMANGIRIS him away! Miz springboards and CROSSBODIES! Miz dodges Ivar to tilt-o-whirl and DDT! Fans fire up with Miz, he runs in, but Ricochet BOOGTS! Ricochet goes up, but Miz trips him up! DRAPING CODE BREAKER! And a roll through, to a BASEMENT DDT! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up for Miz, which is a surprise in itself. Miz nods and stands up, to shout “MASSIVE! BALLS!” Full nelson, but Ricochet arm-drags free! And RECOILS! Ivar is up, he SPLASHES Ricochet and Miz down! Ivar drags Ricochet up, reels him in to waistlock, but Ricochet fights it! Ricochet ROCKS Ivar, runs, but Ivar snarls.

Ricochet scoops Miz, Miz fights free to full nelson! Ricochet fights free, runs, but Miz mule kicks! Miz runs, but Ricochet ROUNDHOUSES him! Ricochet runs, but Miz ROCKS him! Both men BOOT the other down! Fans fire up and Bronson rises! “This is Awesome!” as Auszilla is on one corner, and Ivar goes to the other! The big men each have a target, and they shout at each other about the other’s splash move! It’s a game of chicken, VIKING MOONSAULT and TSUUUNAMI!!

WAIT, Miz avoids the Tsunami! Ivar covers Ricochet while Miz stacks Bronson!! Double cover, TWO for Ricochet, but MIZ WINS?!? What?! The ref has to sort this out, too! The announcer says… IT’S THE MIZ!!

Winner: The Miz, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the WWE Intercontinental Championship)

Replay proves it, Ricochet DID kick out, but Bronson did not! But Ivar is pissed, and he CLOBBERS Miz for it! Fans boo as Ivar beats down Miz but the ref reprimands. Ivar lets off, only to put Miz in a drop zone. Ivar climbs up, to VIKING MOONSAULT!! Miz has the golden ticket to Survivor Series, but did Ivar just make sure he can’t use it?

 

The Alpha Academy regroups backstage.

Tozawa apologizes to Coach Gable, he failed. Gable says don’t apologize, that was a great effort out there. But he should’ve listened to Gable before about diving in with the big fish. Bronson Reed, Shinsuke Nakamura, c’mon. And don’t worry about Nakamura, Otis has him next week. And Tozawa has to refocus, he has his NXT Heritage Cup match tomorrow night. And just so Tozawa knows, the Academy will be there to support him. “ARIGATO~!” And he does his dance. It’s disgusting and we love it! The Wild Card Tozawa, the Number One Guy Otis, and here she comes! Lady Maxxine! Is she ready for the battle royal? So ready!

Maxxine knows there are a lot of girls, but she doesn’t have to eliminate everyone, she just has to be the last one standing. And if she is, we will be looking at the next Women’s World Champion. Yes, just take a note from Tozawa: stick to those your own size. Got it, Coach! Maxxine does her own warm-up dance, but will she be able to make it through such a star-studded field?

 

The Diamond Mine is officially Raw!

It was earlier today that they were in Adam Pearce’s office, and Julius, Brutus and Ivy Nile all signed contracts to make it official! They thank him and he thanks them. He was impressed last week, and he has high hopes for them here on the “flagship” show. Who knows what they’d get stuck doing on that other show. But they’re excited to face the competition, too. And Ivy’s gonna be so excited to get in that Battle Royal! Yeah, she could go right to being #1 contender to the Women’s World title. But then in comes DIY! They loved what the Creeds did last week, and they’ve loved what the three of them have done in NXT.

In fact, they were looking forward to this for a long time. And now that it’s all official, if only if there was someone who could make the match official. Ivy asks why they’re looking at her. Pearce says he can do it. And this will be a first-time-ever, so let’s do it tonight for the world to see! They all agree and it’s going to be a big start to the Diamond Mine’s official Raw careers!

DIY VS The Creed Brothers!

Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano made their return to tag team action last week and defeated Imperium, while Julius & Brutus made their Raw debut and defeated The Alpha Academy. Former NXT Tag Team Champions on both sides, but which team proves themselves worthy of going for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships?

The teams sort out and Julius starts against Ciampa. They circle, tie up, and go around. Ciampa waistlocks but Julius switches to SLAM Ciampa down. Ciampa slips free, and the two reset. They feel things out, Julius shoots in to get the waistlock and SLAM again! Julius floats around, brings Ciampa back up, but Ciampa elbows free! Ciampa cravats to snapmare, then stomps, but Julius avoids that to ROCK Ciampa! Julius wrenches and whips Ciampa, but Ciampa ducks ‘n’ dodges. Gargano sneaks a tag, Ciampa slides under Julius to then CHOP! Gargano CLUBS Julius, Ciampa JAWBREAKERS, and Gargano wrenches to feed him to Ciampa’s LARIAT!

Gargano facelocks Julius, brings him around, but Julius fights up. Gargano rolls with Julius to keep the facelock, but then Julius deadlift suplexes from the mat! Fans fire up as Julius walks over, tags Brutus, but Gargano gets away. Tag to Ciampa, DIY TOSS the Creeds! Then they DOUBLE PLANCHA, but both get caught! The Creeds pop DIY around, DIY slip free, but the Creeds ELBOW them away. The Creeds go up, DOUBLE ASAI, but DIY dodge! Ciampa KNEES Brutus, Gargano DIVES, but Julius DECKS him outta the sky! Ciampa CLOBBERS Julius! Brutus BRUTUS BALLS Ciampa from the apron! All four men are down and fans fire up as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Julius is up top, aimed at Gargano. 450- NO, Julius has to roll through as Gargano dodges! Gargano SUPERKICKS Julius down! Fans fire up while both men fall! Julius and Gargano crawl, hot tags to Ciampa and Brutus! Fans fire up as Ciampa hits a THESZ PRESS and fast hands! Ciampa then rallies on Brutus, and on Julius, and just keeps going! Clothesline in one corner, clothesline in the other! Ciampa ducks ‘n’ dodges both brothers, to DOUBLE LARIAT them down! Fans fire up with Ciampa as he shakes the ropes!

Julius survives Ciampa’s best shot but the fans fire up! Tag to Gargano, and DIY sets up! MEET AT- NO, Brutus drags Ciampa out to TOSS him into the barriers! Wait, Imperium’s Ludwig Kaiser shows up outta nowhere to GAMANGIRI Gargano!!

Fans boo as Ludwig slips away into the night! Julius has no idea what happened, he just Electric Chair Lifts. Tag to Brutus and Brutus goes up, to BRUTUS BALL TOWER!! Cover, Creeds win!

Winners: The Creed Brothers, by pinfall

Imperium gets revenge on DIY, but take nothing away from Julius & Brutus. They still pushed DIY to their limits, will they be the ones going after the tag team champions?

 

Sami Zayn is backstage.

And he just got through watching the recap package of his loss to Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber in Montreal. Jey Uso walks in, he and Sami hug it out, and Jey says to be honest, he feels real bad how that went down. No, forget about that. That was then, tonight is what it’s about. Jey gets fired up for Sami and says Sami deserves this shot. Sami’s gonna go out there and show them who he is! The NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion! Good luck. They hug it out again, but Sami remembers real quick. How’d his talk with Pearce go? Oh, they got it! Jey & Cody are getting a rematch for the tag titles next week! It’s going down, Uce.

And who knows? By this time next week, maybe Sami AND Jey will be champions. YEET. Jey heads out and Sami focuses his mind. Will this be the night the Great Liberator finally has world title moment?

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

Jackie is now with The Man and says opportunity is in the air tonight. What are her thoughts on the #1 Contender’s Battle Royal for a shot at the Women’s World Championship? Becky says The Man has come around to Mohegan Sun Arena lookin’ for a fight. And if that fight is against the entire Raw Women’s Division, then count her in. And if that fight leads her back to a title, count her in. And if that fight leads us all to the most anticipated match at Survivor Series, “The Man” Becky Lynch VS Rhea Ripley, then count her in! Jackie gets nervous and tells Becky there’s someone else here.  Becky turns around to see Nia Jax.

Nia smiles and Becky asks if she was sneaking up on her. No, she wasn’t sneaking up! She was waiting to tell Becky to her face that not one woman is throwing her over the top rope, which means Nia is gonna win, which means Nia will be the happiest since… Well, since she broke Becky’s nose. Oh, Nia, y’know what’s so funny, is that after that moment, Becky went on to win the main event of WrestleMania and Nia… got fired. Good to have you back. Becky leaves and Nia is no longer smiling. But will she look to break more than just Becky’s nose this time?

 

Backstage interview with Chelsea Green & Piper Niven.

Byron Saxton asks the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions for a word about their chances in the battle royal. Oh, they feel amazing, “Bryan.” They are champions already, so they have the best shots at winning. Some of the women in this match… Charity vibes! HAHA! But like, Tegan Nox? Natty? Didn’t they just get humiliated last week? Oh and the others, who literally just lost to Rhea? Like, she beat them all on her own! So what’re they gonna do? Shayna Baszler says she knows what she’s gonna do. Shayna walks in with Zoey Stark, and says she’s gonna tear apart the first person she sees in that ring limb by limb. And y’know what? She might make sure that it’s Chelsea.

Chelsea tells “bestie” Piper to get Shayna. Piper says it is every woman for herself… Piper smiles and leaves, Chelsea laughs that off as an “inside joke,” and then hurries away. But Zoey says Piper has a point: it’s every woman for herself. Shayna chuckles and says it was like Crown Jewel. That felt like 3v1 or something but regardless, she gets her hand raised. The Queen of Spades heads out and the Hunter scoffs. Every woman in that match is ready for the fight of their lives, but who survives to go to Survivor Series? We find out, next!

WWE Women’s World Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal!

On top of Natty, Maxxine, Ivy, Becky, Nia, Shayna, Zoey, Raquel Rodriguez, Piper and Chelsea, there’s Kayden Carter, Katana Chance, Tegan Nox, Nikki Cross, Indi Hartwell, and Xia Li! Speaking of, Xia ATTACKS Becky from behind on the ramp! And then she SPINNING ROUNDHOUSES Becky down! Fans boo as the refs reprimand! Xia may have just gotten rid of The Big Time, but Pearce isn’t letting Xia in, either! Xia is DISQUALIFIED!! Fans fire up for that, but can Becky get back in this? Or will someone else be facing Mami in Chicago?

Raw returns, Becky IS out of the match after that knockout kick and she’s getting checked backstage. As for the rest of the field, Nikki stands at the very center, just staring into space. Shayna makes her entrance, followed by Zoey, and then Tegan. Then last but not least, Big Mami Cool! The bell rings and the brawl is on! No one touches Nikki, though. Nia EXPLODES to throw half a dozen women away, and then she stares at Nikki. Nia and Raquel lock eyes, step up, but uh, end up sandwiching Nikki. She doesn’t even care! Raquel and Nia then TOSS Nikki out to ELIMINATE her! And then Nikki just stands up.

Chelsea stomps Kayden, Nia storms up on Zoey and helps Nia. Natty also helps, but that all breaks down. Nia takes Katana & Kayden, hoists them up, but they fight free to DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Kayden springboards to DROPKICK Nia, then gives Katana a MONKEY FLIP CANNONBALL ASSIST! Nia is down but now Katana goes after Raquel. Raquel fights her off, Stark whips Kayden but Kayden puts her on the apron.

Stark GAMANGIRIS Kayden, steps in but Kayden RAMS in! Katana helps out as they go up, but Raquel yanks Katana down. Katana dodges to CODE BREAKER! Kayden gives Katana a boost again, to SUPER STEINER Zoey onto Raquel! Kayden & Katana work to dump Raquel! Raquel holds ropes, even as Katana digs her boots in. Raquel shoves Katana away and storms in. Ivy puts Kayden on the apron, ROCKS her, but Kayden holds onto ropes. Katana runs in, Ivy throws her out but Kayden is there to throw Katana back in! Katana RANAS Ivy onto the apron! All three are there, and Ivy brawls with KC Squared!

Ivy DROPKICKS Kayden into the post, and she falls! Ivy ELIMINATES Kayden! Then she stops Katana, ROCKS her, and trophy lifts her to TOSS her onto Kayden, to ELIMINATE her! Fans fire up for the Diamond Pitbull as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again as Natty ducks ‘n’ dodges Raquel, to tilt-o-whirl, but Raquel blocks the rest to body shot and lift! But Natty fights the bomb and RAN- NO, Raquel powers Natty back up! But Natty tries to rana Raquel out! Chelsea rushes in to put Raquel on the apron! Raquel lands safe, and now she’s pissed! But Chelsea BOOTS Raquel, SUPERKICKS Natty, and goes after them both! But they both stay put. They grab Chelsea by her hair, Natty slips under and DUMPS Chelsea out! Chelsea SLAPS Natty, SLAPS Raquel, and smiles, but Raquel didn’t budge.

They DUMP Nia and ELIMINATE her!!

Fans are thunderous, and Nia said it herself! Not one woman would throw her over, so there’s three! And we have our final four: Raquel, Shayna, Zoey and the newbie, Ivy! Nia is furious but fans taunt her with “NANA NA NA!” Wait, Nia YANKS Ivy down and ELIMINATES her!! Fans boo the sore loser, and now it’s just the three left. Shayna and Zoey rush Raquel, but Raquel CLOBBERS Zoey. Shayna gets around to SLEEPER, but Raquel TOSSES her! Raquel knees low, scoops to fireman’s carry, but Zoey runs in! Raquel just scoops her, too! Raquel puts Zoey on the apron, but Zoey and Shayna drag Raquel over!

Fans fire up as they throw hands, Shayna KICKS, and then gets around! Zoey holds onto ropes for dear life, and she ELBOWS Shayna! Shayna dangles but drags herself up, to get a KIRAFUDA KLUTCH!! Zoey is fading and then Shayna lets go to get to the apron. Shayna realized that falling would’ve cost them both, so on to another plan. She runs up, but into a SUPERKICK! Shayna wobbles, Zoey reloads and SUPERKICKS again! Shayna is still on the edge, and she shouts, “All you got, b*tch!?”

Zoey SUPERKICKS again! Then APRON DDTS!! Shayna falls, Zoey wins!!

Winner: Zoey Stark (NEW #1 Contender to the Women’s World Championship)

The Hunter took down the Queen of Spades, and now she’s chasing her biggest prey yet! Will Zoey Stark take that title off of Rhea at Survivor Series? Or will Mami find a way to still be on top?

 

Backstage interview with Rhea Ripley.

Jackie Redmond is with the Women’s World Champion and we now know she faces Zoey Stark for the title. Next week, Judgment Day defends the Undisputed Tag Team Championships against Jey & Cody. How important is next week? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Rhea will handle her business at Survivor Series, but next week, Judgment Day does what it does best, and- Zoey interrupts. She tells Rhea that her focus should be entirely on her. See, Zoey will make sure Rhea doesn’t forget that at Crown Jewel, Rhea got hit with the Z360. And if not for Nia, Zoey would be champion. Rhea says she has a lot on her plate, sure, but she didn’t forget about Zoey.

But Zoey must’ve forgotten that Rhea beat four of the baddest women here in the WWE, including Zoey, at Crown Jewel. Or did that slip her mind after taking that Avalanche Riptide onto all those bodies? Oh, Zoey remembers. And she wants Rhea to remember Zoey as the woman who takes this title from her at Survivor Series. Hold onto it nice and tight until then. Zoey heads out, but will the Windy City be where the winds of change bring about a new era?

 

WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins VS Sami Zayn!

Speaking of a new era, could there be one already as the Visionary takes on the Great Liberator with the title on the line? Will Rollins’ back hold out so he can hold onto the gold? Or will Sami finally have his own world championship moment here in the Mohegan Sun Arena?

Raw returns and Rollins makes his entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Rollins regrets being so grateful!

The bell rings and fans fire up already. Rollins and Sami circle, feel things out, then tie up. Rollins waistlocks, Sami switches, but Rollins wrenches free. Sami drops to a knee as Rollins has the wristlock, but fans sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~!” Sami fights up, spins and wrenches back to wristlock. Rollins powers Sami to a corner, the ref counts, and Rollins lets off to then pat Sami on the shoulders. Fans sing “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” but Sami shrugs that off. Sami and Rollins reset, feel things out, and tie up again. Sami wrenches an arm to a wristlock then hammerlock. Rollins moves around, reaches back to headlock, then spins to drop toehold.

Rollins floats to a facelock but Sami fights up. Fans rally and duel, Sami powers Rollins to ropes, and the ref counts. Sami lets off slowly, but whispers to Rollins and pats him on the back. Rollins laughs that off, and the two reset. They tie up, Sami headlocks but Rollins powers out. Rollins drops, hurdles, goes the other way, then redirects again, but Sami picks Rollins up! Rollins fights the Blue Thunder, keeps moving, but Sami dumps him out! Fans fire up as Sami builds speed, but Rollins moves! Sami Arabian Presses and taunts Rollins while fans fire up again. Rollins storms in to get in Sami’s face and fans fire up more as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins CHOPS! Sami sputters, Rollins CHOPS him again! And CHOPS him again! And again! And again! Sami falls in the corner but Rollins stomps him! The ref counts, Rollins lets off, and Sami bails out. Rollins pursues and CHPOS again! Sami CHOPS back! And CHOPS! And whips! Rollins reverses but Sami goes up the railing, to QUEBRADA! Fans fire up for Sami and he storms back over to Rollins. Sami puts Rollins in at 6 of 10, the fans duel and Sami storms up to CHOP again! Rollins sputters, Sami CHOPS again, and Rollins goes to a corner. Sami CHOPS again! And again! And again!

Rollins turns things around to CHOP again! And again! Rollins throws a haymaker but Sami gives it back! They brawl, fans fire up with every shot, and Rollins gets the edge! Rollins DECKS Sami, CLUBS him down, covers, TWO! Rollins seethes but he brings Sami up. Rollins bumps Sami off buckles, then wrenches. The fans rally as Rollins whips corner to corner hard! But Sami ELBOWS back! And jumps up to AX HANDLE! Cover, TWO! Sami is a little frustrated but he drags Rollins up. Sami CHOPS, and ROCKS and CHOPS Rollins again. Rollins huffs and puffs as he storms around, and he eggs Sami on!

Sami CHOPS! And CHOPS! And the hands start flying again! It’s a scrap now but Rollins gets the edge! Rollins snarls, whips, but Sami goes up and over! Sami then LARIATS Rollins down! Fans fire up while Rollins shakes out the stars. Sami looms over Rollins, brings him up, and wrenches. Sami whips, Rollins reverses to mule kick! And front kick! And DISCUS LARIAT! Fans fire up and Sami bails out. Rollins builds speed and he DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans fire up again while Rollins clutches his back. The singing returns and Rollins puts Sami in the ring. But Sami builds speed to FLY! Direct hit on the ramp in return!

Fans fire up and Sami is feeling it! Sami brings Rollins up, and he puts Rollins in. Rollins runs up to SLINGBLADE! Sami goes to a corner, Rollins rises and fans have dueling songs even. Rollins runs in, to forearm smash! Rollins keeps moving, forearm smash! Rollins keeps going, but Sami follows! But Rollins avoid the Helluva Kick!! Sami falls back, Rollins springboards, to SWANTON BOM! And right to a LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Sami survives the aerial assault and Rollins grows frustrated. Rollins huffs and puffs and stands up again to go to the apron. But Sami meets him there to fire off forearms!

Sami CLUBS away on Rollins’ back, lifts, but Rollins fights that! Rollins ELBOWS Sami, kicks low, then reels him in! Rollins underhooks but Sami APRON BACK DROPS! Rollins falls to the floor and writhes while Raw goes to break!

Raw returns once more and both men rise from the mat. Rollins throws a haymaker, but Sami gives it back! They trade shots again, the fans rally up, and Sami UPPERCUTS! Rollins PELES! Rollins runs, to KNEE Sami down! Fans fire up and Rollins brings Sami up. Rollins gets Sami up, and BUCKLE BOMBS! Sami falls, Rollins keeps moving, but Sami scoops to BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!! Rollins survives and Sami is stunned! Sami slaps himself to fire back up, and he hauls Rollins up. Fans fire up, but Rollins ROLLING ELBOWS Sami first! Rollins runs in, Sami hits him with a CORNER EXPLODER!

Sami then goes to the far side and the fans fire up! Sami runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Rollins underhooks, PEDIGREE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Sami survives and now Rollins is stunned! The Mohegan Sun Arena is making all of Wilkes-Barre shake, “This is Awesome!” Rollins fires himself up, he aims, runs in, but Sami SPINEBUSTERS, into a LION TAMER!! Shoutout to Y2J, and then Sami goes to the full BOSTON CRAB!! Rollins endures, crawls, but Sami drags him away from ropes! Rollins turns over, drags Sami down into a prawn hold! ROLLINS WINS!!!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall (still WWE World Heavyweight Champion)

Sami is stunned again, because Rollins snatched victory from the jaws of defeat! But while Rollins holds the belt, he offers a handshake. Sami shakes it and the fans cheer the sportsmanship! Sami falls short, but will he get back up? WAIT! The Judgment Day CLOBBERS Sami! Priest, Finn, Dom & McDonagh all stomp him! But then Rollins DIVES onto Judgment Day! The mugging is now 4v2 as Finn puts Sami in the ring and Priest tosses Rollins. But here comes MAIN EVENT JEY! Fans fire up as Jey runs in to help out his dawg! He SUPERKICKS Dom! And he SUPERKICKS JD! And he dodges Finn to SPEAR him!!

But Priest BOOTS Jey! Priest stomps away on Jey, but HERE COMES CODY!! The fans fire up for The American Nightmare as he brawls with Priest! Cody tosses Priest back into the ring, the brawl is now 4v4 and here comes all the refs and even Adam Pearce! Cody now has Dom, Sami has Priest, and it is just chaos! They brawl on the desk! And in and out of the ring! Producers and security rush in but they can’t stop this, either! Everything spills out of the ring, and Pearce shouts “ENOUGH! ENOUGH!! I’m tired of the games! Every night, every week! You four wanna play games? You four wanna play games?!”

Fans like where this is going! Pearce says they can play games! In Chicago! Survivor Series… WARGAMES!! The fans are thunderous as now we get the double ring, double cage back in action! And then Priest LEAPS to CLOBBER Jey!! The brawl is back on! Finn has Rollins, Cody TOSSES Dom, and then Cody aims at the cluster! ESCALARA CROSSBODY from Cody!! Rollins still throws hands on Finn while they’re on the floor! Priest still throws hands on Jey and Rollins, Finn is pinned down by security, and Raw has to go off the air! If this is how wild it is outside of a cage, how much wilder will it get inside one?!


My Thoughts:

What an awesome Raw to follow Crown Jewel. So much set up not just for Survivor Series but the weeks leading up to it. Really good showing from Akira against Nakamura, but of course Nakamura won. And awesome that they’re giving us Nakamura VS Otis, that’s going to be good stuff. Great match from DIY VS Creed Brothers but I should’ve figured someone from Imperium would interfere. Creeds being officially Raw superstars is cool, I guess their Halloween Havoc TLC match was their goodbye to NXT but with a win rather than a loss. There’s a very good chance we get DIY VS Imperium VS Creeds in a Triple Threat to determine tag title contenders, seeing as how New Day lost to Judgment Day tonight.

Awesome Fatal 4 Way #1 Contender’s match, and it was awesome to see Miz unleashing some new stuff for his moveset. It was a little scary when Ricochet had that hard landing out of the “forced” rana, but he shook it off and finished the match. Incredibly clever finish to give Miz the win, and then Ivar going after him sets up a match between them next week so Miz can further prove he’s ready to face a bigger, stronger opponent. Now, I don’t see Miz taking the title, but he could do very well for himself in this newest Face phase giving Gunther a great match at Survivor Series.

And as always, great stuff with Judgment Day in all their stories. Great opening promos from Rollins and Sami, and Priest’s reaction to Sami getting the title match was good stuff, too. Again, great match from Priest & Finn VS New Day and that was a great win for Judgment Day so Priest could rebound from Crown Jewel. Great promos from the big names in tonight’s Battle Royal, and that was a great Battle Royal at that. Nikki Cross’ catatonic state continues to be an interesting yet entertaining move. Great showing from Ivy Nile but of course sore loser Nia screws her over. That feels like a possible feud real quick, very much a David VS Goliath story for the women’s division.

Zoey getting the win is great stuff, I oddly didn’t expect that. Thought it was Shayna next up, but this is great for Zoey, who is definitely great in ring and is making improvements as a character. Rhea VS Zoey 1v1 is going to be great stuff, but I don’t really see Zoey winning that any more than Miz beating Gunther. And Xia Li taking Becky Lynch out of the match, and then Pearce suspending her from the match, you can bet Becky VS Xia is also something for Survivor Series and that will be great stuff. And then awesome main event from Rollins VS Sami. Rollins wins, of course, but then what an awesome brawl to end things and give us that WarGames match.

And when it comes to that WarGames match, Rollins is now the dysfunctional piece with Kevin Owens on SmackDown, but pretty sure Rollins finds a way to get over his beef with Cody if it means beating down Judgment Day. And now that I think about it, how wild would it be if the Faces win WarGames, but Priest cashes in after to get that world title? It’d work since all of Judgment Day will already be there to take out the others, and after that tense promo from McIntyre tonight, we might even get his Heel turn where he screws over Rollins without necessarily joining Judgment Day.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS his back! Ospreay fires big forearms! Then he fires Kawada Kicks! MJF wobbles, into a CHOP! MJF goes to ropes, Ospreay scoops him, but MJF CLAWS the eyes again! The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up! Ospreay sits up first, then both men stand. Ospreay BOOTS MJF’s haymaker to then ENZIGIRI!

MJF wobbles, Ospreay wrenches an arm, and Ospreay CHOPS MJF off his feet! Ospreay drags MJF up to wrench and CHOP him down again! Ospreay stands MJF one more time, to CHOP, CHOP, and- NO, MJF blocks the chop! MJF WRINGS the arm, Ospreay cartwheels through! ENZIGIRI! Torture rack, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again!

The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

 

Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The two tie up, Okada headlocks for the takeover but Swerve headscissors. Okada kips free, roles reverse, but then Okada headscissors. Swerve kips free, blocks the takeover this time, and he brings Okada up to power out. Okada avoids the hurdle, BOOTS back, then runs. Swerve rolls to trip Okada, then runs. Okada avoids the House Call, waistlocks then ripcords, but Swerve ducks the lariat! Swerve half nelsons but Okada fights out!

Swerve snapmares Okada, goes up and FALLING UPPERCUTS! Swerve hits the Griddy and fans cheer! Swerve even mocks the Rainmaker pose! Okada sits up and glares at Swerve.

My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10
