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!

Raw returns and the tag team champions make their entrance. The teams sort out and Kofi starts against Finn. They tie up, Finn headlocks, but Kofi powers out.

Kofi then dodges Finn to DROPKICK Finn down! Kofi snapmares Finn, tags Woods and runs, PENALTY KICK! SLIDING LARIAT! IMPLODER SPLASH! ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO!

Winners: Finn Balor & Damian Priest, by pinfall

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 ducks and dodges, but then Ivar cartwheels to avoid the handspring, and he LARIATS Ricochet down! Cover, TWO!! Ricochet survives but then Bronson fireman’s carries Ivar! But Ivar fights free to BOOT! Ivar runs, springboards and LARIATS! Cover, TWO!!

Ivar snarls, fans rally up and he aims at Miz. Ivar runs corner to corner, to BRONCO BUSTER! Ricochet staggers up, but he ducks the Heel Kick to SUPERKICK! 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!

Gargano POISON-RANAS Julius! Ciampa tags in and he runs up, PSYCHO KNEE! Ciampa catches Brutus with WILLOW’S BELL! Ciampa then reels Julius in, FAIRYTALE ENDING!! Cover, TWO?!? 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!

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.

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!

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 shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?


AEW TBS Championship House Rules Match: Julia Hart VS Emi Sakura!

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach. Emi dodges Julia and laughs some more, but then Julia grabs her by the face! Julia bumps Emi off buckles, fires off forearms and stomps, then whips corner to corner.

Fans fire up and the ref checks Julia as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up.

Fans fire up and security helps Swerve, but then White drags him back in. White puts Swerve in the ring, mockingly asks, “Whose House?” and he stomps Swerve.

Swerve whips, White holds ropes, then he dumps Swerve out. But Swerve pulls hair! White HOTSHOTS Swerve, builds speed and slides, but Swerve catches him to BACK SUPLEX White into the front row! Fans are getting a much more interactive experience than expected!

Swerve drags White back up, White grabs at fans desperately, but the fans can’t do anything for him as Swerve dumps White back over. Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White sits Swerve up again, to CHOP him back down! White drags Swerve up again, goes up a corner, and mocks Swerve, to then hop back down and CHOP again! Swerve writhes, White drags him up, and White TOSSES Swerve out of the ring. White goes out after Swerve, but he CHOPS back! Swerve then clinches to hit a BACKBREAKER! White writhes, Swerve goes up to the apron again, and he BOOTS White back down! Fans rally up, Swerve drags White into the ring, and then clamps on a cording hold. White grabs ropes, the ref counts, Swerve takes a swing, but White EXPLODERS Swerve up and out!

White goes out after Swerve, hauls him up, and APRON GOURD BUSTERS! Swerve writhes and flounders but White refreshes the ring count. White then RAMS Swerve into steel steps! Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts. Swerve laughs, White throws hands! Swerve throws them back! They go back and forth, faster and faster!

Fans rally up as the shots keep flying, and Swerve DECKS White! Fans fire up, Swerve smiles, but White grabs at Swerve’s legs. Swerve grabs at White, White CHOP BLOCKS! White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death! White clamps on with the sleeper, though, and he hauls Swerve up. Swerve throws elbows, but White wrangles him for a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Fans fire up, Swerve endures, White CLUBS away on the bad arm and pulls! Swerve reaches out, fights around, but White keeps him from ropes by pulling hair!

Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10

Time Limit Draw (both teams earn 1 point)

An incredible battle pushes both teams to their limits, but also pushes this to the time limit! The fans applaud both teams for giving it their all. And in the end, the teams shake hands again. But with no winners, there’s no closing address! The luchadores bow in thanks to all the fans, Bishamon wave good night, and they all head out. A draw is better than a loss, but will just getting one point this round come back to bite someone later on?


Here are the NEW B Block standings!

Alex Zayne & Lance Archer: 4-0, 8 points
Taichi & Yuya Uemura: 3-1, 6 points
Atlantis Jr. y Soberano Jr: 2-1-1, 5 points
Yota Tsuji & Zandokan Jr: 2-2, 4 points
ELP & Hikuleo: 2-2, 4 points
Bishamon: 1-2-1, 3 points
Bad Luck Fale & Jack Bonza: 1-3, 2 points
Yuji Nagata & Minoru Suzuki: 0-4, 0 points

My Thoughts:

A great round for B Block, with some real surprising results, too. Did not think Rogue Army would get their first win here, because I thought Tsuji & Zando were going to continue on pretty strong. Less surprised that Suzuki & Nagata still haven’t won, only because they were up against the NJPW Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions. ELP & Leo can’t lose too much, they’d be owing title shots all over the place. Then great stuff with Monster Sauce getting a big win over Taichi & Yuya, and a great move in the main event. Going for a time limit draw on a half hour match is a bit tricky, though, because things dragged a little in the middle to drag it out. But a draw is also a great way to keep Bishamon from owing more title matches while still not winning so as not to hurt Team CMLL.

My Score: 8.8/10
