It’s the Survivor Series Kickoff Show!

Join Kayla Braxton, Jackie Redmond, Booker T, Wade Barrett & Peter Rosenberg in discussing, analyzing and predicting all the action about to happen in the Windy City!

 

Backstage interview with Santos Escobar.

Byron Saxton says that Santos is still scheduled for a match tonight, but now against Dragon Lee, who stepped in after Santos attacked Carlito. Santos has attacked Carlito, attacked Rey Mysterio- Attacked? What a small word for what he did. Santos “delivered justice” for all the time he spent in Rey’s shadow. For all the time Rey overshadowed other talents with his so-called legacy. They call themselves mentors but they’re really gatekeepers/ As for Dragon, he is just the next chapter in the same old story. Dragon has spirit, but spirit doesn’t win titles. And talent without the will to do what it takes gets you nothing.

Santos can go the distance. santos will do whatever it takes. And when Dragon looks in Santos’ eyes, he will realize he made the biggest mistake of his career! After tonight, Dragon will be a cautionary tale. An example of what happens when you turn on Santos. Santos says this is all about him, because HE is the Legado Del Fantasma. But will Santos see that he isn’t the top second generation luchador in WWE?

 

The Ruffles Women’s WarGames Advantage poll numbers are in!

And the winners are… TEAM EST! Bianca, Charlotte, Shotzi & Becky will now be the first ones in, will this help them finally bring down Damage CTRL?

 

“On this day, 25 November…”

“Two sides converge upon a city to play a game. But not just any game. A game of strategy and skill. Of temperance and cunning. Primitive brutality. Sophisticated cleverness. So gather the masses now. For without these games, there is no survival.” Ozzy sings out as the battlelines are drawn! Two rings, one GIANT cage, “time will tell them they are power mad, making war just for fun,” but this will be anything but for the men and women that enter! “Is the message clear?” “OH LORD, YEAH!!” They have no choice but to band together and fight. “Let the WarGames begin!”

 

Women’s WarGames: Damage CTRL VS Bianca Belair, Charlotte Flair, Shotzi Blackheart & Becky Lynch!

The sirens howl as these eight alluring and lethal ladies prepare to tear each other apart like harpies! As always, two start, members will be released every few minutes, and this can only end once all eight are in! Team EST has the advantage, will that help them tare down Bayley, Iyo Sky, Asuka & Kairi Sane? Or will the Role Model, Evil Genius, Empress of Tomorrow and Pirate Princess be a far more cohesive unit?

But who will be the first two in? Well going by entrances, The Man comes around last, so she’ll enter for Team EST. She’s oddly also the only one not wearing hot pink anywhere… And from DMG CTRL, they’re all coming out together and in kabuki masks to show their solidarity. This keeps Team EST guessing, but it’s Bayley stepping up first. Bayley has a lot of swagger given she & DMG CTRL also won last night on SmackDown against Becky & Charlotte. The doors close, the bell rings, and we’re on the clock! Fans fire up as the two circle then tie up. Becky fires off hands, bumps Bayley off buckles, then off more buckles! And even more buckles!

Becky digs Bayley into the cage but Bayley turns things around. Becky fights back, and she goes for a corner. Bayley fights back and she smacks Becky off buckles! Fans boo, Bayley tells them to shut up, and she ROCKS Becky! Bayley ROCKS Becky again, runs, but Becky follows to CLOBBER Bayley! Fans fire up with Becky and she runs in at a corner. But Bayley puts Becky in the gap! Becky ROCKS Bayley, climbs, but Bayley ROCKS Becky back! Bayley climbs, Becky throws hands, and she shoves Bayley away. Becky adjusts to leap but Bayley gets under. Bayley then kicks low, CLUBS Becky, but Becky ROCKS Bayley!

They continue to throw forearms back and forth, and Chicago is on Becky’s side with every shot! Becky gets the edge, then UPPERCUTS, SOBATS and runs! But Bayley swings, only for Becky to dodge and CLOBBER Bayley! Fans cheer as Bayley goes to a corner. Becky runs in to forearm smash, and BECKSPLODER! Fans rally as Becky storms around and she drags Bayley up. Becky whips, Bayley reverses and sends Becky into steel! Bayley snarls, she drags Becky up and throws her into more steel! Becky writhes, fans boo, but Bayley just soaks it all up. Bayley then drags Becky up to CLUB her and TOSS her to the bridge between rings.

Bayley storms after Becky, fans duel, and Bayley suplexes. Becky fights, throws body shots, and we’re under two minutes. Bayley suplexes Becky onto the steel! Both women writhe into the ring on the right, and Bayley drags Becky up. Bayley CLUBS Becky, ROCKS her with a forearm, and then taunts Maggle. Bayley headlocks, but Becky throws body shots. Bayley CLUBS away on Becky, whips, but Becky reverses to send Bayley into steel! And she runs to DROPKICK Bayley into steel! Fans fire up as Becky keeps going, another DROPKICK! Becky has a DISARM-HER int he ropes! Bayley can’t tap, the match can’t end yet!

Wait! Dakota Kai is here! She JABS Becky with a kendo stick! Becky snarls, and she grabs the stick! But Bayley CLUBS Becky! Bayley fires off on Becky, Becky DECKS Bayley, but then Bayley drop toeholds Becky into the kendo stick! Fans want tables but we’re at 15 seconds left. Bayley has the kendo stick, she SMACKS Becky! And SMACKS! And SMACKS! Time’s up, and first out for Team EST is SHOTZI! The Wild Child runs down the ramp, but Bayley slams the door shut! She won’t let Shotzi get in, but Shotzi takes the door to SMACK Bayley with it! And then Shotzi finds CHAIRS! SO many chairs!

But then Shotzi digs deeper, and finds a trash can! Shotzi tosses all those in, but Chicago still wants a table! Shotzi storms into the ring, but Bayley has a chair! Shotzi BOOTS it into Bayley! Shotzi then runs up, Bayley puts her on the corner, but Shotzi BOOTS and CROSSBODIES! Fans fire up as Shotzi wheelbarrows to victory roll FACEBUSTER! Bayley flounders and Shotzi gets a chair! Shotzi sits it up, gets the trash can out of the way so she can run and use the chair to FLYING CANNONBALL! Fans fire up with Shotzi and she has a crazy grin. Bayley goes to the east ring, Shotzi runs to DIVE through ropes, but into a CUTTER!

Fans rally, Bayley and Becky fight over the kendo stick! Becky kicks low, then SMACKS Bayley! And SMACKS her again! Bayley is caught between a kendo stick and a steel chair! She goes up a corner, but gets SMACKED from all sides! She still manages to climb, so Shotzi & Becky go after her! Bayley has to remember, leaving the cage is a forfeit! She makes it to the top, but Becky & Shotzi drag her back down! We’re under a minute on the clock, Bayley fights desperately, but Shotzi & Becky dribble her off steel! But she hits them back! But Becky SMACKS Bayley off steel and she falls back! Becky & Shotzi see Bayley in position, and they coordinate.

Bayley flounders back to her feet, into a DOUBLE DOUBLE AX HANDLE! The countdown is back, DMG CTRL sets out the WWE Women’s Champion, Iyo Sky! Iyo hurries around, looks under the ring, and she brings out steel chains! Fans still want tables but Iyo SMACKS Becky and SMACKS Shotzi, then she wraps up Shotzi to TOSS her!

Becky & Shotzi go to the east ring, Iyo springboards to DOUBLE MISSILE DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Iyo as she has targets in opposite corners.

Bayley & Iyo climb up after Shotzi but Shotzi fights back! Time’s up, here comes Bianca Belair! The EST goes right in, she has two braids to SMACK both Bayley & Iyo! She LASHES each of them, fires off more shots on Iyo, and the fans fire up! Bianca drags Iyo up, whips her to a corner, but Iyo reverse! Bianca avoids the trash can to elbow Iyo!

Team EST stands tall and the fans fire up! “This is Awesome!” and now the clock runs out! DMG CTRL sends Kairi! She almost frolics her way down, and she decides to go looking for goodies.

DMG CTRL mugs Bianca, Kairi keeping her in the east ring. Kairi goes up but Bianca ROCKS her! Kairi hits back, they brawl, and fans anticipate what’s coming with the clock counting down. But then Bianca lifts Kairi to TOSS her onto Bayley & Iyo! Fans rally for EST as all of DMG CTRL is down! Bianca gets herself a chair, as does Becky, and they just SMACK whoever sits up! Kairi hits Becky in return, then so does Iyo! Bayley turns things around on Bianca to SMACK her, DMG CTRL is taking control! But we’re under 15 seconds, and the fans “WOO~!” Last in for Team EST is The Queen! Charlotte hurries right in and she BOOTS Kairi!

Charlotte catches Bayley into a BACKBREAKER and BUCKLE SHOT! Then she catches Iyo to FALL AWAY SLAM her into Bayley! Kairi gets up but Charlotte CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS!

And FLYING- NO, Charlotte turns rana into BOMB into the steel!! Kairi & Bayley attack Charlotte together, and TOSS her to the east ring. They storm in after her, and Iyo even gets the chains. Fans still want tables but Charlotte is sent to a corner. Charlotte goes up and to the bridge to then BOOT everyone back!

Charlotte hurries up a corner, and she DOUBLE BLOCKBUSTERS! Fans fire up as Charlotte and Becky stare down! They’re on the same team, though! But then Iyo & Kairi shove them into each other! Iyo hits them with the chain, but Becky fires off on Kairi! Charlotte fireman’s carries Iyo, and she goes up a corner as Becky fights Kairi and Bayley! Dakota panics as Charlotte goes up with Iyo, and Bianca RAMS Bayley into buckles! Charlotte wants to go to the very top!? Iyo fights using the chain! Iyo sends Charlotte down, then finishes climbing to the very top! Fans fire up and Iyo lets the chain down so Dakota can grab it!

Wait, that chain has a hook on it! Dakota hooks it up to a trash can! Iyo drags the can up to the top to join her! Fans fire up as Iyo looks to recreate her signature WarGames moment! Iyo stands on the very top, puts the trash can on like it’s armor, and she SUPER TRASH CROSSBODIES EVERYONE!!! The fans are thunderously losing their minds, and the countdown is under 15 seconds! Last but certainly not least, it’s ASUKA!! And truly, no one is ready! Asuka says chotto matte, and she looks under the ring. KENDO STICKS! Fans are disappointed, those aren’t tables. But wait! MORE kendo sticks. Chicago doesn’t like this trolling.

But then wait! A TABLE!!! Dakota helps load the table in and Chicago is finally happy! Oh, and a fire extinguisher for good measure. And then the bell rings again, because now, “Let the WarGames begin!!” The kendo sticks are handed out to DMG CTRL, and they’re like hyenas looking at easy prey. DMG CTRL storms in and they fire off! “This is Awesome!” as Team EST can only take the shots! Becky still hits back but Asuka CLUBS her down! Iyo uses that chain to wrap Becky and Bianca up together! Asuka & Kairi are very excited for this as DMG CTRL all take corners. Ichi, ni, san, SHI NE!! QUADRUPLE DROPKICKS!!

Now THAT was Big Time revenge!! The EST, the Queen, the Wild Child & The Man all stood together, united against DMG CTRL, and they stand tall in the end! Is this the end of DMG CTRL once and for all? Will this be just the start of big things for Bianca, Charlotte, Shotzi & Becky?

 

The Alpha Academy, Chelsea Green & Piper Niven are in the lounge.

They’re enjoying Ruffles, and Chelsea tells Piper that Chicago would’ve loved her. Uh them, Chelsea. Them. But #YESBOY! Pretty Deadly walk in and ask if those are Cheddar & Sour Cream crisps. What did they say? Crisps. These are chips. Crisps. Chips. Crisps! CHIPS! Guys, relax! Oh no, they spill the chips/crisps! And then R-Truth is there? Where’s he been? He’s been here the whole time, dawg. Listening to this argument about chips and crisps. They ain’t neither! These are Ruffles! And they’re good, y’all. You can taste the meat in ’em! Now, let’s all just get along. Come together right now, and watch Tozawa do that Ruffle Shuffle!

RUFFLE SHUFFLE~! Oh, that’s naaaaaaaasty! But whatever you call them, and whatever flavor you like, go get you some and enjoy the show!

 

Jey Uso and Sami Zayn talk backstage.

Is he good? Yeah, Sami’s good. How about Jey? Yeah, he’s good. But Sami is nervous. Randy Orton isn’t here yet. Jey knew this would happen! Why WOULD Orton be here? Why would he team with Jey? Jey put him on the shelf, why would he come back? It’s all Jey’s fault. Sami says no, none of this is Jey’s fault. Orton or no Orton, there is history here, right? Last year, Jey & Sami were in WarGames together, came out stronger on the other side. No matter what, they go to war together! No matter what, Sami has Jey’s back. Jey thanks Sami, and says he’ll go check with Cody. YEET. But will The Viper still make it in time to help the team? Or is this his revenge in and of itself?

 

WWE Intercontinental Championship: GUNTHER VS The Miz!

Der Ring General is the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion in history, but The Hollywood A-Lister is one of the most decorated Intercontinental Champions in history! And while they represent completely different ends of the professional wrestling spectrum, we’re about to see who is truly the best Intercontinental Champion in WWE today! Will it be the stern and serious wrestler that has dominated for over 533 consecutive days? Or will it be the adaptable and charismatic entertainer who has been here for 20 YEARS?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see the definition of “best” put to the test!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. They feel things out, and then Miz kicks Gunther’s leg! Gunther stays up, they still circle, and they feel things out. Miz KICKS and KICKS and Gunther backs away. Gunther frowns but Miz eggs him on. They feel things out, Gunther powers Miz to a corner, and the ref counts.

Miz claws at Gunther’s face, then he has the legs tied up around the corner! “WOO~!” into the DRAPING FIGURE FOUR! Gunther endures, the ref counts, and Miz lets go at 4!

Miz grins as he’s learned from his “sports entertainer” role models. Miz then springboards, but Gunther BOOTS him down! Gunther scowls as he storms up on Miz. Gunther stands Miz up to CHOP him down! Gunther drags Miz up, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS him again! And CHOPS! And BOOTS! Miz leans against ropes to stay standing, but he is clearly dazed. Gunther grins and soaks up the heat from Chicago. Gunther taunts Miz, storms back up on him, but Miz kicks a leg out! And then fires off kicks and CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Miz KICKS but Gunther CHOPS and Miz falls again! Gunther then scoops and SLAMS!

Gunther paces around, taunts Miz and kicks him around. Gunther pie faces Miz, talks trash in German, and fans boo again. Gunther stands Miz up, but Miz fires haymakers! Fans fire up with Miz but Gunther gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Miz flounders and writhes but Gunther stalks him to ropes. Gunther stomps Miz, has him on ropes, and then brings him around. Gunther runs up to BOOT Miz down again! Fans boo but Gunther just soaks it up. Gunther taunts the fans, taunts Miz, but Miz crawls to ropes.

Winner: Gunther, by submission (still WWE Intercontinental Champion)

Miz tried all the tricks in the book he learned from past Intercontinental Champions and past sports entertainers, but it was a move from a particular past Intercontinental Champion that finished Miz off! Gunther keeps Miz at ocho, will Gunther not stop until he has surpassed even the total combined day record held by Pedro Morales?

 

The Judgment Day talks backstage.

They’re loving all these firsts for them. First WarGames, first PLE main event. But then Dirty Dom says The Viper won’t even be here. Well, he either no-shows and it’s 5v4, or Orton does show and just poisons his team from the inside. Either way, Judgment Day injects the venom. Priest will go tell Drew McIntyre the good news, and also about that other thing. Priest heads out, Finn says cream always rises to the top! Will this be the night Judgment Day truly takes over the WWE?

 

Santos Escobar VS Dragon Lee!

The Emperor of Lucha betrayed and injured Rey Mysterio, and by proxy betrayed and damaged the LWO. Then he attacked Carlito to keep him from even being able to compete tonight! However, the Boy Wonder won’t let him get away with it! Will Dragon Lee beat respect into Santos? Or will El Hijo Del Fantasma grow his legacy by slaying Dragon?

The bell rings and Dragon runs up! Escobar dodges to fire off forearms! He DECKS Dragon, stomps away on him, then stands him back up. Fans boo as Santos stomps away in the corner.

WWE Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley VS Zoey Stark!

Though she made it through four opponents at Crown Jewel, The Eradicator doesn’t seem as dominant as she should be to The Hunter. And now that they’re 1v1, Zoey feels she can focus completely on Rhea while Rhea’s too busy worrying about her boys. Will Zoey be proven right on all fronts? Or will we see that Mami is always on top?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is the hunter and who is the prey!

There’s some trash talking, and then the bell rings. The trash talk continues, and Rhea SLAPS Zoey! So Zoey SLAPS Rhea! Rhea is furious and then Zoey TACKLES her! They throw hands, fans fire up for Rhea as she gets the edge! Zoey gets free, gets around and then dodges again to DROPKICK! Rhea tumbles out and Zoey grins.

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s World Champion)

Mami looks sensational as she stays on top in one hell of a fight! But as close as this one was, will Rhea continue to eradicate her challengers?

 

Seth Rollins paces around backstage.

Jey & Sami talk with him about the issue. Rollins hasn’t heard anything! Randy still ain’t here! Jey again says this is on him! Cody says don’t worry about it, this isn’t Jey’s fault. Randy will be here! But they’re up next! Cody knows that, but he promises Randy will be here. Just trust him. Rollins says time for war, fellas. He heads out, followed by Jey. Sami says he trusts Cody, then heads out. But even the American Nightmare looks worried. Is the Legend Killer going to make it in time? Is he even coming?

 

Men’s WarGames: Drew McIntyre & The Judgment Day VS Cody Rhodes, Jey Uso, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins & Randy Orton!

The Scottish Warrior isn’t in The Judgment Day, but he stands with them because they all want to tear down Main Event Jey Uso. And everything The Judgment Day has done has more than united The American Nightmare, Main Event Jey, the Great Liberator and the Visionary against them. But as we just saw, there’s a big concern that The Viper isn’t going to join in. This on top of Judgment Day having the WarGames Advantage, is there any hope for Cody’s team to survive?

Naturally, McIntyre makes his entrance separate from Judgment Day, but it is Finn Balor who steps up. Tensions are still high between McIntyre and Priest, though… And then from the other side, Cody’s entrance is first, “WHOA OH~!” followed by Jey. Chicago is bouncing along with Jey as he stands on top of the shark cage. Sami makes his way out now, “LET’S GO!” And then Rollins makes his way out, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” and it would seem he is the one to start. Fans fire up as we get The Visionary and The Prince reigniting their rivalry! Rollins FLIES Over the ropes to get at Finn and the bell rings!

Finn and Rollins scrap, then stand to throw hands! Rollins CHOPS and ROCKS on repeat! Finn knees low, storms up and whips but Rollins stops himself! Rollins elbows Finn, whips him into steel, and Chicago of course chants for CM Punk. Rollins TOSSES Finn into more steel, and then TOSSES him into more steel! Fans chant for Randy, sing Rollins’ song, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins stalks Finn to a the west ring. Finn begs for mercy but then kicks, only for Rollins to block! Rollins gets Finn up, but Finn slips free of the bomb to CLOBBER Rollins! Fans boo but Finn circles Rollins. Finn stands Rollins up to TOSS him into steel!

Finn then brings Rollins around to throw into MORE steel! Finn CHOPS, there’s still three minutes to kill and Finn sends Rollins into MORE steel! SLINGBLADE! Chicago gets the CM Punk chants going again but Finn aims at Rollins from a corner. Finn runs in, Rollins stands to SUPERKICK first! Rollins then has Finn at the bridge, and he underhooks the arms! Finn fights the Pedigree to back drop Rollins on the steel! Rollins writhes, his back still not 100%. Finn climbs up a corner, and he COUP- NO, Rollins avoids the stomps, and he SLINGBLADES in return! The fans fire up, sing along, and Rollins stalks Finn.

Rollins ROCKS Finn with haymakers, then puts Finn in a corner. Rollins fires off forearm after forearm, fans fire up more, and Rollins whips corner to corner. Rollins runs in, forearm smash and a clinch, for a BACKBREAKER! Rollins runs, to BOOT Finn down! Fans fire up again and the countdown is 15 seconds! Rollins hears the fans counting it down, and he knows Judgment Day is sending someone. Here comes McDonagh! The Irish Ace runs up but Rollins BOOTS him down! Finn RAMS into Rollins, whips him corner to corner, but Rollins reverses and Finn hits buckles hard! Rollins storms over, but McDonagh SMACKS him with a kendo stick!

McDonagh brings in extra sticks and he has one to Finn. They both grin as they circle around Rollins like sharks with blood in the water. They SMACK and SMACK and SMACK away! Rollins falls, clutching a leg, and the lethal Irishmen raise the sticks. Finn CHOKES Rollins with the stick, then lets off so McDonagh can have a turn. McDonagh aims to SMACK, but Rollins blocks! Rollins BOOTS Finn, and TOSSES McDonagh to the east ring! Rollins ROCKS Finn, aims at McDonagh but McDonagh RAMS into him! QUEBRADA! Down goes Rollins and McDonagh coordinates with Finn.

McDonagh & Finn mug Rollins, double whip, and then KENDO STICK CLOTHESLINE! Fans boo while Rollins sputters to the ropes. McDonagh drapes Rollins out for Finn to SMACK with the kendo stick! Finn CHOKES Rollins again and talks a lot of trash. Rollins can only endure the bamboo in his face. Then Finn & McDonagh wrench, crisscross and DOUBLE SUPLEX! The countdown is back, and Finn makes sure to have a kendo stick. First out is JEY! Fans “YEET! YEET! YEET!” as Jey storms down to the ring. He sees the kendo sticks and raises them a chair! Jey runs in to JAM JD! SMACK on the back!

JAM for Finn, SMACK on the back! McDonagh kicks and ROCLS Jey but Jey fires off hands! Jey puts some stank on the HAYAMKER! Then Jey does the same to Finn! “YEET! YEET!” Pop, lock and HAYMAKER! Fans fire up as Jey kicks at McDonagh. McDonagh blocks but the DRAGON WHIP hits! Jey also ENZIGURIS Finn to a corner! Fans fire up with “UCE! OH! UCE! OH!” Jey runs to HIP ATTACK Finn! And HIP- SPANISH FLY from McDonagh! All four men are down, and we see McIntyre just glaring as he wants his turn. There’s still a minute and forty, and Rollins saves Jey from a double suplex! They DOUBLE SUPERKICK!

Fans fire up as Rollins & Jey fire off on Finn & McDonagh, bump them off buckles, and rain down fists! The fans count along, Rollins goes all the way to TEN! Finn scurries away after that but Rollins just goes along the ropes to springboard and AX HANDLE! Fans fire up again, and Jey keeps on McDonagh. Fans sing again but we have 15 seconds left.

Finn & McDonagh drag Jey & Rollins up, and set them up for Priest’s CORKSCREW SENTON! Fans boo but Judgment Day soaks up the heat. Priest drags Rollins up while Finn & McDonagh mug Jey.

Priest ROCKS Rollins into the bridge, then to the east ring. Priest throws hands, then stomps away on Rollins. McDonagh sets Jey up for Finn to JAM and SMACK him with the chair! The countdown is back, and here comes Sami! Fans fire up and Sami storms down to the ring. Sami sees McDonagh & Finn watching him, and then he dodges McDonagh’s jab! Sami SMACKS McDonagh with the stick, ROCKS Finn and SLAMS the door on him! Then Sami considers his options. Fans fire up as Sami brings out a TABLE!! Jey helps Sami with it, then he and Rollins set it up. Sami keeps looking for more?!

Winners: Cody Rhodes, Jey Uso, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins & Randy Orton, by pinfall

Cody’s music plays but he raises Orton’s hand in victory and thanks. Orton came through for the team and they all hug it out! They all raise their hands in victory, the Judgment Day finally humbled! But will this only add to the anger within McIntyre? And-

WAIT! Cult of Personality plays?!? It can’t be! BUT IT IS!! C M PUNK returns to the WWE!!! Chicago wanted it, and he could not ignore their cries! Punk kneels, checks his watch, and says IT’S CLOBBERING TIME!! Then what does this mean for the landscape of World Wrestling Entertainment now that the Best in the World is back!?


My Thoughts:

What an amazing Survivor Series! Not only did they fit it in under three hours, they gave us the surprise I didn’t think we would ever actually get it. After all the things WWE did to reference CM Punk, all the weeks of fans wondering and pro-wrestling pundits out there thinking it was just to mess with us, it was all real! Somehow they worked out a deal, he’s back, holy crap. And it was a huge moment after an awesome main event with a great moment where they tease the MITB cash-in and then give us Orton showing up. Great win for the Faces in that way, and this definitely puts some intrigue into the top title stories as we’re on the road to the Royal Rumble.

Great Women’s World title match from Rhea VS Zoey, but maybe a little ambitious with Zoey not quite landing as clean as she wanted out of the top rope throw. But at the same time, of course Rhea wins, but Zoey looked strong otherwise. Rhea’s got any number of options going towards Royal Rumble, but given Nia won against Raquel last Monday, I’m thinking Rhea VS Nia is the next 1v1 rivalry. Gunther VS Miz was also a great title match, with Miz looking great busting out the Cheating Face tricks a la Ric Flair and Eddie Guerrero, but of course Gunther retains. Miz is still great but Gunther is going to keep building that reign for a long time.

Dragon Lee subbing in for Carlito definitely made the match for tonight better, he and Santos really brought it tonight. And a bit of a surprise in Santos winning, but I think that was the plan even when this was Santos VS Carlito. Santos will continue to use this to get heat and maybe we get more out of Santos VS Dragon, maybe even Santos VS Carlito after all. Depending on how this goes, I wouldn’t be surprised if they extend the story so that Santos VS Rey is on the road to WrestleMania. Just a shame the US Championship is on Logan Paul instead of part of this story.

Great sponsorship promos tonight, and glad to see R-Truth finally back on screen again. There’s someone who could have a lot of fun going to NXT for a minute, just like Alpha Academy has. And just an awesome Women’s WarGames to open the show, bookending the night. Honestly, it was perhaps the best match of the whole night with such great creativity. And the story played out just as I hoped, with Becky and Charlotte making amends and then the Faces winning out because of that. Now, we didn’t get Bayley kicked out of DMG CTRL tonight, but we can see that play out on SmackDown. If Bayley is to be kicked out and maybe even turn Face, she probably gets the blame heaped on her, and then the three Joshi all beat her down and kick her to the curb, creating a potential Bayley VS Iyo match for the title down the line.

My Score: 9.1/10

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

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

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

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

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

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

The Rock has a message!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And he uses a chair to SMACK Knight again and again and again! The Phenomenal One isn’t letting The Mega Star win this match after keeping him out of it! The fans boo as Styles then takes the chair back from the refs, and puts Knight in a STYLES CLASH onto the chair! McIntyre crawls over to cover, McIntyre ELIMINATES Knight!!

Fans boo more, Styles just screwed Knight and the rest of the field benefits from it! But everyone else is still down, Orton clutching his back. Kevin and Logan find each other, and the fans fire up as they brawl it out! Kevin sends Logan into chains, then AOI SHODOU!!! Kevin leaves Logan behind to aim at McIntyre and Orton.

Kevin stomps Logan down, goes up another corner, and he SWANTON BOMBS onto McIntyre’s knees!

Kevin sputters as McIntyre saves himself there. The ref checks everyone, they’re all okay to continue, and the fans rally back up. Logan sits up and fans boo. McIntyre also stands, he aims at Kevin and has his own countdown. “THREE! TWO! ONE!” CLAY- NO, POP-UP POWERBOMB instead!! But Logan runs u! Logan avoids a kick, Kevin avoids a haymaker, STUNNER!! Logan tumbles away, Orton goes after Kevin. No RKO, Kevin SUPERKICKS instead! Kevin whips, POP-UP- NO, Orton slips free! RKO!!! Orton crawls to cover, Orton ELIMINATES Kevin! Orton writhes from the bad back but he’s still one of the final three.

McIntyre crawls to the chains, Logan is also on the outer platform, and Orton stands up in the ring. McIntyre storms into the ring, glaring at both targets.

The ImPAULsive Influencer just influenced this match’s finish! He couldn’t let it go and had to knock Orton out! Will Logan have to watch his back for the Viper? As for McIntyre, he’s still going back to WrestleMania. Will he finally have his moment on the Grandest Stage of Them All?

 

Triple H is here!

The fans fire up as The Game stands in the ring, and he says, “I just wanted to come out here for a second to say thank you. On behalf of the WWE, on behalf of every superstar back there, thank you for inviting us into your home. Thank you for being great hosts. Thank you for this beautiful Optus Arena. It’s been a wonderful night. And I wanna let you know the attendance here tonight, the official attendance: 52,590!” The fans cheer that!

 

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

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

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

The bell rings and the fans are thunderous already as Rhea stares Nia down. Rhea smiles as the fans are all behind her. Nia and Rhea circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock. They go around, Nia shoves Rhea away, and the fans boo. Rhea stays cool and she dodges Nia to kick, stomp a foot, and SMASH her off a knee! Rhea LARIATS but Nia stays up! Rhea CHOPS, CHOPS, and knuckle locks to go up and up and RANA! Nia staggers to a corner, Rhea DROPKICKS her in! The fans fire and Rhea brings Nia out, to pump handle! Nia elbows free of that and knocks Rhea down, then SENTONS!

Nia dribbles Rhea off the mat, puts her in a corner, and runs up to SPLASH! Nia keeps Rhea up so she can “smile” at the fans. Nia HEADBUTTS Rhea, tells her to kiss this, and then HIP ATTACKS!

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

Fans boo as Nia marches around with Rhea on her back, but Rhea fights around! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! The fans fire up as Rhea has Nia in the body scissors, too! But Nia powers up and out, only for Rhea to sunset flip! Nia stays up, but Rhea avoids the hip drop! Nia lands hard on her butt, and fans taunt her with “MY HOLE!” Nia stands Rhea up but Rhea fires off fast hands! Nia grabs on with both hands, but Rhea breaks free to knuckle lock and CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Rhea then goes up and up and FLYING RANA, but Nia blocks that one! POWERBOMB! Deadlift, and POWERBOMB again!

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s World Champion)

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 9/10
