PLAY BY PLAY

This first hour of Raw is COMMERCIAL FREE!

 

Damage CTRL arrives backstage!

The winner of the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble, Bayley, leads Dakota Kai, the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, the Kabuki Warriors, and THE WWE Women’s Champion, Iyo Sky, into the arena as they’re all ready to take over all of the WWE!

 

Pat McAfee is here!

He returned to WWE commentary, and even in-ring action, for the Royal Rumble and now he’s here to join Raw! And wouldn’t you know? Corey Graves is nowhere to be found because of it. Because BREAKING NEWS, Pat and Maggle are carrying commentary on Raw from here on out!

 

CM Punk is here!

The fans in Tampa fire up as the Best in the World makes his way out, but uh oh, his arm is in a sling. Punk still autographs a belt for a young fan and high-fives the rest, but clearly things aren’t looking good for Punk. Punk steps into the ring, the fans chant for him, and he grabs a mic. He stares at the WrestleMania 40 sign, and sighs before he says, “I came real close Saturday night. And I felt like I had it in the palm of my hand. And I’m not mad at anybody, really. I’m not mad at Cody Rhodes. I’d actually like to take this time off the top to congratulate Cody.”

Fans cheer that, and Punk says sometimes it isn’t about what you deserve but what you earned, and Cody busted his ass. Punk wants to see Cody finish his story in Philadelphia. Going back to back in the Rumble is no small feat. It’s a lot like the Tampa Lightning going back to back to win the Stanley Cup. Fans cheer that! But Punk continues with, “And while I came close, close don’t count in this business. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. And I’ve never believed in luck. But I feel a little bit unlucky. In the course of the Rumble, I tore my right tricep.

“And as much as I tried and I asked, ‘Maybe I can just tape it. Maybe I can make it to Elimination Chamber, and I can try to win that and I can get my main event at WrestleMania.’ But it’s just not in the cards. And I don’t want anybody to feel sorry for me. Because when I think of this situation and how much it bums me out, how much I have talked from the highest mountains about how my goal and my dream ever since I was a little kid was to main event WrestleMania, maybe it’s just not ever gonna happen.” Fans boo but Punk doesn’t want pity. Realistically, is this a problem?

He has a friend, Chad Gilbert, who he loves to death and thinks about a lot. Chad has cancer, has been dealing with it for a long time. He’s got a beautiful wife, a beautiful daughter, and Punk visits Chad while he gets chemo. Chad’s always in a good mood, never down about any of it, even though it’s soul crushing. That is a fight! This here is just a flesh wound. When Punk says he is Best in the World, that’s not because he always wins. Did you see him in the UFC? Yeah, not great, huh? But dammit, Punk had a dream and a chance, and was asked, “Do you wanna do this?” And he said yes BECAUSE it scared him!

Fans cheer Punk on as he gets emotional. It scared him as much as coming back after 10 years in a place he never wanted to leave in the first place, but he had to! It scared him! Mania scares him! This might be a goal that haunts him for the rest of his life! But this is just a bump in the road. Best in the World is the people who fight things like cancer! Who put their lives on the line like Matt Flannigan in Chicago, a firefighter! Punk just entertains people, and for some reason, y’all love him. He promises he is gonna keep doing it until the wheels fall off. This is a bump in the road, it is adversity, and he has overcome that countless times!

Punk doesn’t focus on the negative, on those who says “You can’t!” Not tall enough, not big enough, not the right hair or tattoos. That doesn’t matter! Because everyone watching around the world, they wake up, they do their jobs, and they just keep on going! You put food on your family’s tables, so that is what he’s gonna do. Mania 40 might not be in the cards, but he’s a Cubs fan, and this isn’t the first time or the last time he says this: There’s always next year! But then DREW MCINTYRE walks out! Punk says he should’ve known… The Scottish Terminator makes his way to the ring, staring down the man who eliminated him from the Rumble.

McIntyre goes right into the ring, Punk ready to hit him with the mic if he has to. But McIntyre gets his own mic, and while fans are torn, he says, “I’ve said some terrible things about you since your return to WWE. And I meant them. You were a terrible person to me in the past, you’re a poison to the locker room, but I’m listening to you now and I can relate to everything you’re saying.” McIntyre has had his dreams taken away, too. He was fired from WWE, and hearing about Chad, he can relate. McIntyre isn’t sure what he believes in anymore, he went through recent changes, and was never much of a spiritual person.

But he wants Punk to know this: McIntyre prayed for this and it happened. At the Rumble, McIntyre targeted Punk, assaulted him, didn’t want him to win. Seth Rollins is gonna take his title until his body falls apart but who’s gonna take it to the net level? McIntyre couldn’t let it be Punk, but then Punk eliminates him! McIntyre was so angry that he couldn’t sleep. But then he heard the news the next day, and he slept like a baby. Punk won the battle, but not the war. McIntyre exorcised the demon that is CM Punk! Now McIntyre will find his way to the World Heavyweight Championship at Mania, and he will live Punk’s dream, again!

Punk sighs while McIntyre smirks, but the fans are on Punk’s side. McIntyre says c’mon, look him in the eyes. Punk does look McIntyre in the eyes, and he says his heart hurts more than his arm. Punk will rehab, he will come back, and he will main event Mania. But first will be McIntyre, and Punk will be coming right at him. Punk drops the mic, McIntyre says okay, then takes a swing! Punk dodges, fires forearms, and even hits with the bad arm! But a GLASGOW KISS HEADBUTT drops him! McIntyre STOMPS the bad arm! Fans boo, but McIntyre wants Punk to scream in pain! But here comes SAMI ZAYN!

Fans fire up as Sami runs in, slides and dodges to fire off haymakers! McIntyre runs away! Sami shouts at McIntyre to get back here but McIntyre grins. Sami helps Punk to his feet and the fans cheer. McIntyre takes his leave, but has he just made sure Punk will be out much longer than before?

 

The Judgment Day is watching backstage.

JD McDonagh says that was rough. But Rhea Ripley says it doesn’t matter what McIntyre does. It’s not their business. They have bigger things to handle. Dom says yeah, like Bayley being dumb enough to show up tonight. Mami has nothing to sweat. Rhea says yeah, if Bayley chooses Rhea, it’ll be Bayley’s funeral. Tonight, it is about sending a message that wasn’t sent at the Rumble. Are the boys gonna remind everyone who they are? Or are we gonna let distractions get in the way? Priest says it’s agreed, they’re done letting distractions get to them. And Rhea doesn’t have to worry about Priest. After tonight, NOTHING can stop them!

Finn says exactly! Everyone is getting too comfortable challenging them. So tonight, they show just how vicious they are! Rhea likes that. Priest & Finn head out, but will the Punisher & Prince still be undisputed?

 

#DIY speaks.

Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa are on the move as Gargano tells Tampa, Florida, “Two hours from where DIY was born, we’ve waited seven years for this moment.” Ciampa says it isn’t just seven years, this is a lifetime in the making! Two little kids sat down watching Saturday wrestling dreaming about this moment here. This is about the tag team titles! This is about showing the world who they are! And they are… D I Y!! Johnny Wrestling & The Sicilian Psycho are ready, will they be undisputed?

Winners: Finn Balor & Damian Priest, by pinfall (still Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions)

The Prince & The Punisher showed that vicious edge, just as Mami wanted! Dom & JD join in the celebration, and then Priest gets the mics. Finn says, “Who’s the Undisputed Tag Team Champions? The Judgment Day!” Priest says, “Alright, alright. For weeks, you’ve all seen a different side of The Judgment Day. And we all know who’s the reason for that. it’s the same person I feel like everybody in this ring owes an apology to. In fact, after the Rumble, I feel like I should apologize to him. Yeah, you guys know who it is. It ain’t a secret. Truth, I know you can hear us. Come join us in the ring.”

R-Truth makes his entrance and the fans fire up! Truth heads to the ring and Finn even joins in on the “What’s up? What’s up?” Priest says it is okay, Truth, c’mere. The music cuts and Priest says Truth has his word, he won’t attack. Priest knows Truth wants to say the deal. Truth joins the others in the ring, has a mic now, and he says he’s glad he gets to say it cuz it never works when Priest says it. He just isn’t nice enough. So, ALL RISE for the Judgment Day! The fans cheer and Priest says that was good. But look, Truth, at the Rumble, Priest was thinking about last Monday. Truth says that’s fine, they can talk about that later.

Truth hasn’t been able to sleep, this has been bothering him. He relocated Priest’s cash to crypto, don’t worry. He even filed the taxes and liquidated the assets, Priest is good to go! Priest sighs and says there’s no way Truth knows what any of that means. But what Priest is saying is that they’re a family. Yeah, that’s what Truth is saying! They’ve been family the whole time! Priest is like Truth’s older brother. But Truth, you’re older than all of them! Truth says Finn is “that weird uncle,” unpredictable but they still love him. What more is there to say “Tom ‘n’ Nick?” Fans boo Dominik and Truth is confused. Sorry, his bad.

But then, there’s JD. He’s that stepbrother who they don’t wanna admit is in the family. Priest says Truth has to let someone else talk. Priest was gonna say that the Judgment Day was family. But sadly, Truth ain’t Judgment Day. He’s not? No, he never was. But Priest has always liked Truth, he is very funny. So that’s why Priest isn’t the one who is gonna do this. Dom? JD TAKES INITIATIVE! Fans boo as JD smacks Truth around, kicks him, but wait! Here comes The Miz! Miz wants to save his friend, but he just gets mugged, too! It’s a 4v2 beating! Fans boo but then Priest & Finn set Miz up for Dom! Dom goes up, to FROG SPLASH!

JD drags Truth over to put next to Miz, and The Judgment Day stands tall. United and undisputed, will anyone ever bring them down now?

 

Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark VS Chelsea Green & Piper Niven!

The Queen of Spade & The Hunter want the tag titles, but the Hot Mess & The Scottish Viper want those titles back! Will Shayna & Stark tear through the former champs to get at the current champs? Or will they refuse to #TapNapOrSnap?

Winners: Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark, by pinfall

Well that was fast! If they can put away former champs that fast, will Shayna & Stark be unstoppable going for the titles?

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

Tampa fires up for the back to back winner of the Men’s Royal Rumble, The American Nightmare, as he heads to the ring, “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody gets the mic but takes a moment as he hears the fans chant, “You Deserve It!” Cody then asks Tampa Bay, “What do we wanna talk about?” He had something in mind to say, first in response to his own question. But on the way out, he heard something for the very first time that was music to his ears. Samantha Irvin, could you do him the honor of saying it one more time? Samantha smiles and grabs the mic to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome of the 2023 AND 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble match! The American Nightmare~! CODY! RHOOODES!”

Fans cheer and Cody is feeling it now! He thanks Samantha, and then says we have a lot of people here tonight. Cody knows that they come to Raw, to the WWE shows, to SmackDown and the PLEs, and the expectation is on the superstars to give us the best time of their lives and to escape for a moment. But some don’t realize that even the WWE superstars need to escape. The last 48 hours of Cody’s life outside of here have been rather… challenging. It’s all good, all is well, but on Saturday, you will never know how much he needed the fans. Cody is endlessly grateful for that, but let’s get to it.

“Let’s make WrestleMania 40 official.” But then Seth Rollins makes his way out here?! The Visionary, the Revolutionary, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, has fans singing his song now, “WHOA~ OH~ OHH~! OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” while he makes his way to the ring. Rollins gets a mic of his own, the fans continue to sing, and Rollins revels in it a moment before telling Cody, “Tampa Bay is right, you do deserve it, man.” Rollins says that because these two haven’t always seen eye to eye, but the past year, they’ve developed a… mutual respect for each other. So man to man, back-to-back Royal Rumbles, congrats! That is special.

They shake hands, but then Rollins wants to be real. Sunglasses coming off now. If Cody chooses Roman Reigns at Mania, that is a mistake. Rollins thinks Cody should fight him instead. Fans are surprised to hear that, and are torn on that. Rollins understands the concerns. But all he is asking is for Cody to hear him out. Rollins watched Cody at the Rumble press conference. Cody said unequivocally that he is “The Guy.” And Rollins isn’t trying to be a jerk, but no, Cody is not The Guy. Roman Reigns isn’t even The Guy anymore! Rollins is The Guy. Rollins is The Guy, and the World Heavyweight Championship is THE title in the WWE!

Fans are again torn but plenty still sing for Rollins. Rollins says see, we’re getting there. Now last year, Cody won the Rumble, it made perfect sense to go after Roman. But that was when there was only one champion. The landscape has changed. But Rollins gets it. Every single day, all Cody has thought about this past year is Roman, Roman, Roman. But Rollins and Cody have been together on this ride. Rollins won this belt, Cody’s been on the road with him, town after town, city after city, show after show. And who was there int he main event? Cuz it sure wasn’t Roman. And what title was Rollins defending? Cuz it sure wasn’t the WWE Universal Championship! It was the WORLD HEAVYEWIGHT TITLE!

And does Cody remember why this title came to be? It was because every single one of these people was sick and tired of Roman Reigns. They were sick and tired of Roman showing up every other week, then every other month. Then every six months, never defending the title and then cheating to win when he had to instead of being an honorable man! The WHC is THE PEOPLE’S TITLE! It is for the us, by us, and has been built up by us! Broken bones, bad backs, blown out knee, all of them, Cody included, has leveled the playing field.

So they don’t need to pretend Roman is “The Guy” anymore, cuz he’s not. We don’t need to pretend Roman is on some untouchable pedestal. Hell, we don’t need Roman at all! So Rollins just has to ask: What title does Cody want? The Hollywood title? The Hogan title? The one for posers and frauds? The one for those who politic to the top? Or does he want the Dusty Rhodes title? The workhorse title, the blue collar title, because that is what the WHC means! It is about who is the very best between these ropes!

And Rollins could try and ask what title Dusty would want, but it wouldn’t matter, because he’s not here, this isn’t about him, and hasn’t been for some time. This is about Cody and Cody’s decision. And Rollins doesn’t need an answer right now, but he wants Cody to think on this because this is the biggest decision in Cody’s entire life. Just ask yourself, “What’s in here (your heart)? What kind of man do you wanna be?” Rollins steps back and Cody isn’t sure what to make of that. Cody tells Seth, “I have an insane amount of respect for you. And this is the last thing I woke up thinking that we would be talking about, that I would be thinking about.

“But let me tell you this. I’ll think about it.” Fans cheer and Rollins is a little surprised. Did Rollins just redirect the Road to WrestleMania towards him? Or does Cody still want to #FinishTheStory that badly?

 

Kofi Kingston speaks.

“Hey! I’m still on Cloud Nine because what we did last week to Imperium. We took ’em on and we took ’em down!” Now Kofi said it before and he’ll say it again: When you think about New Day, you talk about pancakes, Booty-O’s, ice cream, bright colors. But the one thing you forget o talk about, the most important thing, is the fact that they win championships! Talk about that! That is what Kofi is about to do here tonight when he beats Gunther for the Intercontinental Champsionship! FIVE-TIME, BRO! Xavier Woods is just as fired up, will Kofi end the reign at just short of 600 DAYS?!

 

Jey Uso VS Bronson Reed!

Main Event Jey wants after singles gold, but so does the Colossal Aussie! Will Jey manage to YEET Reed out of the way? Or will the Uso Splash not compare to the Tsunami?

Raw returns and Reed makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Reed puts Jey in a corner, lets off, but Jey avoids the haymaker to fire off hands. The fans “YEET! YEET!” and Jey runs, but Reed runs him over! Reed paces, drags Jey up and HEADBUTTS back! Reed drags Jey up to HEADBUTT again! Reed clotheslines in the corner, to then short arm LARIAT Jey down! Fans boo but Reed stalks Jey to ropes. Reed HEADBUTTS again, then mocks the yeet. The fans rally for Jey but Reed drags him up to ROCK him with a right. Reed brings Jey around to CLUB him in the chest!

Reed whips, Jey holds ropes, and then Jey dumps Reed out! Jey builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Reed hits barriers! The fans fire up with Jey and he gets Reed up, only for Reed to POST him! Reed runs in, but Jey ducks and Reed POSTS himself!! Fans fire up while Raw goes picture in picture.

Jey sputters, Reed stalks him, then he drags Jey up into a neck wrench! Jey endures, fights up, and throws body shots! Jey throws haymakers, but Reed HEADBUTTS again! Jey falls into a corner, Reed steadies himself, and then storms up on Jey.

Reed stands on Jey at the ropes! The ref counts, Reed steps away, and then he drags Jey up. Reed CHOKES Jey on the ropes, thrashes him, then lets off as the ref counts again. Reed stands Jey up in a corner, ROCKS him with a right, then whips him corner to corner. Jey bounces off buckles and falls to his knees, but Reed soaks up the heat. Reed drags Jey up, CLUBS him to another corner, then CHOKES Jey on the buckles. The ref counts, Reed lets off, and he mocks the “UCE! OH!” chant. Reed goes corner to corner to HIP ATTACK! Jey flounders and Reed grins. Reed drags Jey into a chinlock!

Jey endures as Reed squeezes tight. Jey fights up, Raw returns to single picture. and Jey throws body shots. The fans rally as Jey counter punches! And counter punches! And counter punches! Fans “YEET! YEET!” and Jey pops ‘n’ locks, before he ROCKS Reed again! The fans fire up as Jey runs in, but Reed puts him on the apron. Jey GAMANGIRIS then climbs up! CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Reed is tougher than that but Jey keeps cool. Reed stands, into a mule kick! UPPERCUT! Reed blocks a kick, spins Jey and blocks the Dragon Whip to SENTON! Cover, TWO! Jey is tougher than that, too!

Winner: Jey Uso, by pinfall

Truly a huge win for Jey! And while Kofi is facing Gunther later tonight, will this help Jey be right in line for his own Intercontinental Championship match?

 

Adam Pearce meets with Andrade Almas.

El Idolo signs on the dotted line, he is officially Raw! Pearce appreciates this, they shake hands, and then in walks Nick Aldis. Well, just the man Pearce wanted to see. Pearce introduces one of the biggest free agents in WWE history, a former NXT Champion and United States Champion, and is now the newest member of Raw. Aldis congratulates Andrade on the deal, but says it is a shame, as SmackDown had a very handsome offer. Pearce says maybe SmackDown should’ve been a little quicker. Yes, evidently. But Andrade shakes hands with Pearce and Aldis one more time, and wants Aldis to say hola to Santos for him.

Andrade heads out and Aldis says he loaned Pearce Bayley for the night so that Raw could have both Rumble winners for a very special night, and it’s like that, is it? It’s just business. Oh, well, speaking of business, they need to discuss Elimination Chamber. But then Aldis’ phone rings and he says he has to take it, it’s Bron Breakker. Aldis heads out, and it seems SmackDown is going to sign their own big name soon enough.

 

Gunther speaks.

Der Ring General tells Kofi, “I want to speak firm to you. Good on you for challenging me, because tonight, you’re about to have the biggest fight of your career. You’re fighting for your name, you’re fighting for your legacy, you’re fighting for every accomplishment you’ve ever made. You will remember this night for the rest of your life. But I? After tonight, I will forget about you. So here’s some advice: Leave it all out there in the ring tonight. Because when I’m done with you, nobody will be speaking about you anymore, and I will carry on being the longest reigning and greatest Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion of all time. Good luck, Kofi.”

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

Jackie Redmond is with The Man and says obviously Plan A was winning the Rumble, but that isn’t how things went. What is Plan B? Becky says the she let a lot of people down, including herself. But the only way she stays down is if she gives up and that ain’t in her nature. Then Plan B is to train harder, think smarter, fighter a little dirtier, but she does not stop until she’s back at the top, and takes that women’s title back into the main event like it deserves. The Man is planning to still be Big Time in time for Mania, how will she fight her way into Philadelphia?

 

WWE Intercontinental Championship: GUNTHER VS Kofi Kingston!

Backstage interview with Sami Zayn.

Jackie is now with the returning Great Liberator, and notes that just 48 hours removed from his return, he is facing the man who put him on the shelf in Drew McIntyre. How is Sami managing his emotions going into tonight’s main event? Sami says that’s a good question, because this has all been emotional. It is hard to just sit on the sidelines when it was an injury at the hands of a man like McIntyre, especially when McIntyre always has an excuse for why he does anything. And then, the moment of a lifetime, to come out as Number 30 in the Rumble, even that was somehow taken away by McIntyre.

Now, if it was just Sami, he could deal with it. But when it comes to McIntyre, he is targeting everyone, including CM Punk, Cody Rhodes, Jey Uso and Seth Rollins. McIntyre points the finger at everyone except himself. So as far as Sami is concerned, it is time for a reality check, and he’ll be the one to give it! Sami is ready for a fight, will he be able to bring down the Scottish Terminator?

 

The Kabuki Warriors VS Tegan Nox & Natalya!

The Empress of Tomorrow & The Pirate Princess are once again WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, and they’re ready to fight to prove they’re still that dangerous! But will the Welsh Firecracker and Queen of Harts find a way to grab some golden tickets? Or will they not be ready for Asuka & Kairi?

Raw returns and Nox & Natty make their entrance. The teams sort out and Nox starts against Kairi Sane. They circle, Kairi uses the ref as a shield, plays some peekaboo, then she kicks Nox low. Kairi headlocks but Nox powers out. Nox trips Kairi, Oklahoma Rolls, ONE!! Nox clinches, Natty tags in, and they double whip Kairi. They drop toehold then basement dropkick, and Natty covers, TWO! Natty scoops but Kairi slips free to throw Natty down by her hair! The ref reprimands, but Kairi tags Asuka. Kairi bumps Natty off Asuka’s boots, then Asuka grins as she whips. Natty reverses to send Asuka hard into buckles!

Tag to Nox, she runs up to fire hands on Asuka! Nox whips, Asuka reverses but Nox goes up and over. Nox runs back in to UPPERCUT! Nox then GAMANGIRIS Asuka down, and she goes corner to corner for a CANNONBALL! Asuka flounders but Nox stalks her. Nox drags Asuka around, but Kairi runs in! Nox dodges, Natty is there and she snapmares Kairi. Natty & Nox coordinate, they both run, then DOUBLE BASEMENT BOOT! The fans fire up with Natty and Nox kicks Kairi out while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Asuka kneels on Nox’s neck! The ref counts, Asuka steps away and tags Kairi.

Nox and Asuka are down, they crawl, hot tag to Natty! Natty fires hands on Asuka, then snap suplexes!

Natty hurries to snap suplex again! Natty bumps Asuka off buckles, fires off hands, and the fans fire up more. N atty runs, Asuka swings, but Natty gets around, GERMAN SUPLEX! DISCUS LARIAT! Natty drags Asuka around, steps through, and fans fire up, but Asuka fights the Sharpshooter! Asuka calls to Kairi, Kairi sneaks in from behind to CLUB Natty! Natty TOSSES Kairi out for that, then asks for a tag, but Nox goes to kick Kairi! Kairi blocks to trip Nox up! Natty is upset, she WRECKS Kairi with a dropkick! Asuka runs in, Natty dodges and drags her into a cradle! TWO!! Natty gets the legs but Asuka BOOTS her!

Winners: The Kabuki Warriors, by pinfall

Natty and Nox were close, but one misstep cost them. Is this as far as their team can go? As for Asuka & Kairi, will they be ready for any and all challengers that come their way?

 

Backstage interview with Kayden Carter & Katana Chance.

Jackie is with the former tag team champions, and notes that it was only a few days ago that they were holding those belts. How do they plan on getting back into the picture? Katana says they talked with Adam Pearce, and the Life of the Party gets their rematch. Kayden says Asuka & Kairi have one more week to enjoy the reign, because those belts are coming back home to the Party. And that’s next week on Raw! KC Squared just gave us a scoop, but will they get things lit again on the Road to WrestleMania?

 

Bayley heads to the ring!

Samantha Irvin gives the winner of the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble a great introductions, and now the Role Model joins the Kabuki Warriors, Iyo Sky & Dakota Kai in the ring. What will she have to say about her big win? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Bayley points to the WrestleMania sign while she has the mic. The fans cheer her on, and Bayley says, “Before I get into the nitty gritty, I’m gonna give you all a rare opportunity to take a picture of us. I mean, c’mon, let’s ask ourselves, when’s the last time you saw the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, the WWE Women’s Champion, and your Women’s Royal Rumble winner standing int he same ring together, huh? Uh, the answer is never because it’s never been done! This right here is history, and it’s all thanks to ME!” The fans cheer and Bayley says she’s been telling all you idiots that DMG CTRL was going to take over, and nobody believed her!

Everyone thought Bayley’s idea was a flop. That Bayley’s not as good as she used to be. That Bayley’s been losing all of her matches. But luckily, she doesn’t listen to opinions, because she sees the bigger picture. She may not have been on the poster for the Royal Rumble, but she stands tall as your 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble winner! Fans cheer that! Bayley says in a time when we have the most stacked, talented WWE Women’s Division, Bayley came out on top! HA! She beat 29 other women on Saturday! Not only that, she beat Rhea Ripley’s precious little record as she was in that match for a total of 63 minutes and 3 seconds! DING DONG, HELLO!

“So at WrestleMania-” Wait! Here comes Rhea! And Rhea says, “Aww~, Bayley. You think that you’ve accomplished something? That’s very cute. You might’ve beat my time in the Rumble, but that’s only because I wasn’t in it. And I see that the rest of DMG CTRL has gold, and if you decide to challenge me at WrestleMania, then it’s gonna stay that way. You wanna know why? Because Mami-” GETS BLINDSIDED BY NIA JAX! Fans boo as Nia and Rhea brawl, DMG CTRL cheers it, but then things get in the ring! Rhea stomps Nia, runs, but Nia runs Rhea over! Nia then runs, and she drops the leg, brother!

Fans boo as Nia runs again, for another leg drop, brother! DMG CTRL stays way back as Nia hits a third leg drop! Fans boo as Nia then goes up, for the A-NIA-LATOR!! Nia stares DMG CTRL down, and Bayley is the only one that stays in the ring! Bayley looks around, realizing she got left behind, and Nia storms up to her. Nia takes the mic to tell Bayley that she can pick Iyo Sky or anybody else. But Rhea Ripley isn’t making it to WrestleMania. Nia pushes the mic back into Bayley’s hands, and Bayley says hold on, Nia didn’t let her finish. Bayley’s gonna make her official announcement on Friday Night SmackDown.

Nia backs away, and while Rhea sputters and coughs, both Bayley and Iyo look worried. Is Bayley still going to dare to choose the Women’s World Championship? Or will she end up choosing the Evil Genius by default?

 

Drew McIntyre VS Sami Zayn!

The Scottish Terminator shows no remorse about what happened to CM Punk, and was even happy about it! He also injured Sami and enjoyed it, but will he come to regret it now that Sami’s back? Or will the Master Strategist’s return be cut short?

Raw returns and Jackie is with McIntyre at gorilla position. She notes Sami saying McIntyre needs a reality check. What is his response? McIntyre says all he has ever done is tell the truth, and all his actions are justified. As for Sami’s reality check, they have had countless matches. And McIntyre isn’t the best with math, Sami has beaten him exactly… ZERO times! And that ain’t changing tonight. So hit his music! McIntyre’s theme song plays, he makes his entrance, is there a first time for everything?

The bell rings and Sami runs in, only for McIntyre to RAM him into a corner! Sami gets free to CHOP and CHOP but McIntyre shoves him down. Sami dodges the lariat to JAB, JAB and CHOP! Sami whips, McIntyre reverses but Sami holds ropes. McIntyre runs in but Sami dumps him out! Sami then PLANCHAS, but McIntyre catches him! McIntyre brings Sami over to TOSS him over the desk! McIntyre leaves Sami behind, the ring count climbs, and McIntyre counts along. McAfee says Sami will be fine but McIntyre gets impatient. McIntyre goes out after Sami, drags him back up, and pushes him into the ring.

McIntyre tells Pat not to talk trash, but then Sami DIVES! Now McIntyre goes flying over the desk! Fans fire up with Sami and Maggle tells Pat to be more careful with what he says while Raw goes picture in picture.

Sami catches his breath, then fires back up as he fetches McIntyre. Sami SMACKS McIntyre off the desk, and SMACKS him off it again. Sami refreshes the ring count, brings McIntyre around, but McIntyre CHOPS! McIntyre whips Sami to the barriers, but Sami goes up to QUEBRADA! Direct hit and down goes McIntyre! Sami gets up on the desk as he’s all fired up and the fans are with him! McIntyre sits up in a huff, Sami refreshes the ring count again, and Sami brings McIntyre around into the ring. Sami stalks McIntyre to a corner and fires body shots. The ref counts, Sami wrenches and whips, but McIntyre reverses.

Sami goes up, but McIntyre KICKS him out of the air! McIntyre soaks up the heat while Sami sputters. McIntyre drags Sami up to DECK him! McIntyre stomps Sami on the face, then puts him in a corner. McIntyre CHOPS Sami, stalks him to ropes, then CHOPS him again! Sami falls over and McIntyre paces around. McIntyre smirks as he stands Sami up again, to CHOP him back down! Sami sputters but McIntyre looms over him. McIntyre stands Sami up to CHOP him again! Sami shakes his head as he refuses to fall! McIntyre CHOPS Sami again, but Sami shouts! Sami CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS in return! McIntyre DOUBLE CHOPS Sami off his feet!

McIntyre rains down fists and just HAMMERS away on Sami! The ref has McIntyre back off so he can check Sami, and Raw returns to single picture. Sami is okay to continue, so McIntyre CHOPS him to a corner! Sami sits down but says he can still go. McIntyre stands Sami up again, to CHOP him back down! McIntyre wants this to end already but Sami refuses to stay down. Sami CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but McIntyre RAMS him! And CHOPS! And CLUBS! McIntyre hoists Sami up top, then CHOPS again! Fans “WOO~!” but McIntyre has a murderous glare. McIntyre climbs up and he hauls Sami up.

Sami resists the lift, throws down elbows, then CLUBS away on McIntyre! Sami SUPER SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMBS!! Cover, TWO!! McIntyre survives but Sami is too sore to be upset. The fans rally up as both men rise, and Sami fires haymakers! Sami whips, McIntyre blocks to CLUB and underhook! Sami wrenches out, knuckle locks and CHOPS, then he goes up and up and TORNADO DDTS! Cover, TWO!! McIntyre survives again but Sami stays focused. Sami aims from a corner, he runs in, but McIntyre picks Sami up for a SPINEBUSTER! Jackknife bridge, TWO! McIntyre deadlifts Sami to SITOUT POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up as Sami survives and McIntyre is fuming. McIntyre looms over Sami, pie faces him, but Sami rises up to CHOP! McIntyre is angrier now, he runs in, but Sami moves! McIntyre POSTS himself! Sami reels McIntyre in, suplexes, but McIntyre’s so big! Sami still tries, but McIntyre fights free to GLASGOW KISS HEADBUTT! McIntyre goes to a corner, and he decides to go up?! Sami stands, and he trips McIntyre up! Fans rally as Sami climbs, he brings McIntyre to the top, and fans fire up for the SUPERPLEX!! Both men are down and “This is Awesome!” Sami and McIntyre stir, and Sami rises first!

Sami leans against ropes but he makes it to a corner. The fans fire up as Sami runs in, but McIntyre LARIATS Sami down! McIntyre aims from a corner now, “Three! Two! One!” CLAY- NO!! BLUE THUNDER BOMB!!! Cover, TWO!! McIntyre survives yet again and Sami is beside himself! Sami rises again, he brings McIntyre in, but McIntyre RAMS him into a corner, then OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES him! McIntyre kips up, storms up, and he fireman’s carries Sami to climb up! Fans freak out but here comes SUPER WHITE NOISE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Sami survives and shocks McIntyre! McIntyre glares, Sami reaches up at him.

McIntyre asks why Sami has to do this. Sami has balls, sure, but he’s just out of his league. McIntyre pie faces Sami but Sami ROCKS him with haymaker after haymaker, and from all sides! The fans are thunderous, but McIntyre just GLASGOW KISS HEADBUTTS again! Then a forearm in the corner! McIntyre keeps moving, Sami follows, but McIntyre guards! LOW BLOW!? But was that by accident? The ref can’t be sure what really happened, and then McIntyre CLAYMORES!!! Cover, McIntyre wins!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

Perhaps a serendipitous shot down low, and the Scottish Terminator takes this one away from Sami! McIntyre doesn’t really care how it looks, he just knows he’s won. Will McIntyre fight his way to the top of the WWE by any means necessary?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Raw right here to follow Royal Rumble and get us going on the Road to WrestleMania. They also did a good job pivoting things after unintended change of plans. For one, a damn shame that just as CM Punk got going again, he’s hurt, again. As great as Punk still is on the mic, maybe his body just isn’t able to keep it up anymore. I mean, his AEW run, if he wasn’t hurt, he was suspended, and those suspensions maybe helped him not get hurt worse. But he still gave an amazing opening promo, and then McIntyre had a great promo that just pissed all over Punk. I’m sure they wanted McIntyre VS Punk, but Sami taking McIntyre on tonight was great stuff, too.

Great promos, awesome main event, and what a clever finish because I’ve never seen someone do that guarding low blow to Sami like that. With Punk injured, someone else has to face Rollins at WrestleMania, maybe it’s McIntyre. I do like that Rollins interrupted Cody’s promo segment to perhaps tease an audible there, too. Rollins wanting Cody to choose him, harping on how Roman’s not “The Guy” anymore, there are elements of Rollins just wanting to puff up his own ego. But as it stands, there are plenty of other guys who can face Rollins at Mania but no one has been built like Cody to go after Roman again, so Cody surely tells Rollins, “Thanks but no thanks.”

Similarly, great stuff out of DMG CTRL. Kabuki Warriors of course beat Nox & Natty, which seems to be falling apart as a team. And Bayley shows up to brag about winning, about how DMG CTRL has lasted this long, but I did not think Nia would beat down Rhea right in front of them all. Bayley being intimidated into not choosing the Women’s World title and basically having no other choice but choosing Iyo is creative, but it also seems to take away the dynamic I was seeing in the DMG CTRL story. I thought Bayley was going to get dumped and then chooses Iyo as revenge, not Bayley choosing Iyo and then being dumped because DMG CTRL has had enough of her.

But clearly, Bayley VS Iyo is still gonna be the plan with Becky talking about fighting her own way to a title match. Nia VS Rhea is definitely the title match for Elimination Chamber: Perth, surely even the main event, while Becky is getting in the Chamber match and winning her shot for Mania. Also, Kayden & Katana getting their rematch next week, yeah that’s not gonna go well for them, I would think. Shayna & Stark got a fast win on Chelsea & Piper, they are surely contenders for the tag titles. I kinda hope they’ll get a contender from Raw and one from SmackDown for a Triple Threat at Mania to really do things up big.

Really good match out of Jey VS Reed, and I figured Jey was getting the win to build himself up towards a title match. Gunther and Kofi had great promos before their awesome title match, they really went the distance. Also I like that picture in picture returned for tonight, it helped the matches feel bigger. Gunther wins, of course, and Imperium beating New Day down, I was so hoping Big E was making a miraculous return. But no, Big E’s neck is still a major concern, we gotta give him time, if he’s ever coming back at all. But Gunther VS Jey could be awesome stuff as Jey goes for his first singles title and Gunther aims for… oh no, WrestleMania’s gonna be on Day 666 of his reign…

Well, speaking of titles, Finn & Priest VS DIY was an awesome tag title match, DIY coming so close and yet still so far from the win. But clearly, the story with R-Truth is not over. Priest lures him into a beatdown, Miz makes the save, Awesome Truth VS Finn & Priest for the titles? Truth has been a serious competitor before, and a tag champion before with Kofi Kingston, he and Miz could be a pretty fun championship team. I just don’t know the chances of that actually happening, but some team somewhere has to get these belts off Judgment Day some day.

My Score: 8.9/10

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

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

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

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

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.”

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: Finn Balor & Damian Priest w/ Dominik Mysterio VS Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne!

The Judgment Day has dominated up and down the card, beating teams like Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, Cody Rhodes & Jey Uso, and most recently #DIY. Will they add the Big Strong Boi & Bruiserweight to that list? Or will the New Catch Republic become the new tag team champions?

The introductions are made, but Dom takes the mic so he can handle the Judgment Day’s introduction.

Austin Theory is here?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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.

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
