Kelani Jordan is here!

The inaugural NXT Women’s North American Champion gets the big introduction, then walks out here with the belt around her waist. The fans cheer as she holds the belt over her head, then she gets the mic. “Thank you guys so much. This is so surreal to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” The fans chant “You Deserve It!” and Kelani says she won many championships in gymnastics the past 18 years, but nothing compares to being the first ever Women’s North American Champion! But she’ll also be the first to say that the six women at Battleground were battling! Bodies were flying, risks were taken, souls were snatched!

Everyone got beat up, but when Kelani climbed the ladder and brought down this title, that is a moment she will remember for the rest of her life. It is an honor to be the first. But being the first means no lineage to live up to, no prestige to uphold. It is all on her to create the importance to this title. There are a lot of talented women in that locker room, but she will prove day in and day out that in this ring, no one does it like Lani. But wait! Jaida Parker makes her way out here! Jaida says the only thing Kelani proved is that she can climb a ladder like a squirrel. All this noise about bringing prestige to the title, it ain’t gonna last long.

Because tonight, Jaida will handle Michin, and then all we hear is “AND THE NEW-” MIA ATTACKS! Kelani shrugs, this is what Miss Parker gets. Mia whips, Jaida stops herself and elbows back! Jaida SMACKS Mia off the apron but Mia throws hands! Mia then throws Jaida in the ring, the ref hurries in, and fans are dueling already! Will the Head Baddie In Charge humble Miss Parker something fierce?

Mia Yim VS Jaida Parker!

The bell rings and Mia dodges to CHOP! And forearm! And repeat! Mia trips Jaida, rains down fists, but Jaida pushes her down to throw hands in return! Mia turns things around again to HAMMER away on Jaida! There’s also hair pulling so the ref counts. Mia lets off, Jaida runs up to TACKLE Mia into a corner! Jaida RAMS into Mia again and again, then brings Mia out to scoop and SLAM! Jaida talks smack, but Mia SMACKS Jaida! Mia SOBATS then PELES! Jaida flounders to a corner, Mia storms up, and Mia CHOPS! The fans fire up, Mia HEADBUTTS Jaida over and over, but lets off as the ref counts.

Mia goes corner to corner, runs back in, and CANNONBALLS! Cover, TWO! Jaida is still in this but Mia stalks her. Mia clamps on a chinlock but Jaida fights up. Jaida pries at the hold, backs Mia down into buckles, but Mia still holds on! The ref counts the ropebreak, but Jaida RAMS Mia into buckles again! Jaida flails, the ref counts, but Jaida RAMS Mia in again! Jaida gets free, but Mia dodges her on the return! Mia waistlocks, Jaida switches, but Mia elbows free to switch and GERMAN SUPLEX! The fans fire up and Jaida flounders to another corner. Mia runs up, but Jaida moves, cannonball hits buckles!

Jaida gets Mia up to POST her! Jaida brings Mia out to put her in the ropes. Jaida CHOPS Mia, then runs to DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT! The fans fire up while Mia writhes and Jaida says Mia can’t handle her! Jaida says this is HER ring, but NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Jaida runs Mia over! Jaida drags Mia up to run her over again! Jaida drags Mia up again, but Mia rolls her up! TWO, and both women stand, Mia DROPKICKS Jaida down! Jaida gets up to wrench Mia, for an ARM BREAKER! Then she runs Mia over again! Cover, TWO! Jaida grows frustrated but she clamps onto Mia for a chicken wing. Mia endures, fights the crossface, and the fans are dueling! Mia bends Jaida’s fingers to pull the crossface away, then stands up. Jaida whips Mia to a corner, runs up, but Mia ELBOWS her away! Mia goes up to RANA! Jaida staggers up but Mia LARIATS!

Mia YAKUZA KICKS, then SHOTGUNS Jaida into buckles! The fans fire up and Mia runs back in, but Jaida dodges! Jaida blocks a kick, Mia blocks a punch! Mia ROCKS Jaida, then uses the corner for a TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Jaida survives and Mia grows frustrated. Mia storms back up on Jaida, wrenches an arm, but Jaida refuses to eat da feet! Jaida kicks and suplexes, GOURD BUSTER! Then Jaida runs, for the TEARDROP!! But the hip attack sends Mia out of the ring!! The Good Brothers hurry out here to check their sister, but Jaida has them back off. Jaida gets Mia into the ring, covers, TWO!!

Mia survives and Jaida is shocked! The fans rally and duel, and Jaida tells Machine Gun to back off. Jaida then brings out a chair!? The fans fire up as Jaida slides in, but Gallows distracts the ref! Karl snatches the chair away! Jaida is upset, but Mia rolls Jaida up! MIA WINS!!

Winner: Mia Yim, by pinfall

Michin literally spanks Miss Parker as she gets that W! Will The OC show OTM who really runs these mean streets?


New Catch Republic speaks.

Tyler Bate says Gallus is up to their old tricks again. Now, he has been in Wes Lee’s position before, and Wes is Bate’s mate. He won’t stand here and watch one of his mates get bullied. Pete Dunne says time to prove it! Gallus Boys On Top? Shut it. Will The Big Strong Boi & Bruiserweight help The Cardiac Kid give Joe, Mark & Wolfgang the payback their deserve?


There’s an argument going on at Chase U!

Riley Osborne, Duke Hudson, Ridge Holland & Professor Chase himself are all shouting about last week, how Riley & Duke said one thing but then did another and how that messed up Thea Hail’s match. Ridge has them all stop for a second. Ridge thought they squashed this beef, and so does Mr. Chase. Duke says sorry, just a bit hard to trust Ridge. Riley says yeah! Ridge isn’t part of Chase U! Name one thing that’s went right since Ridge showed up! Ridge says those two told the rest that they weren’t gonna be out there! Riley says they didn’t feel like it until later, when Duke insisted. Then they should’ve just been a unit and went out all at once!

The arguing starts up again, and Thea storms in. STFU and sit down! Yes, ma’am… Chase wonders where Thea got that from. Thea says if the issue is Ridge is an outsider, then guess what? Riley was an outsider once and they let him in. Chase says they should all take a step back and realize this is really all because of Jacy Jayne. Thea asks “Andre” if she needs to remind everyone that he almost gambled the school away. Oh, wait, he DID. And as for DUKE…! Everyone thought Duke was gonna stab Mr. Chase in the back, but he didn’t, because Chase U gave him a chance. Chase U gives everyone a chance, so Thea is over this arguing!

They need to get on the same page. They are ALL Chase U, and that’s not a #TeachableMoment, that’s the truth! Theta heads out and all four men are humbled. They see Thea’s point, but will they still be able to make it work as a team?


Six Man Tag: Wes Lee & New Catch Republic VS Gallus!

The Cardiac Kid didn’t win the North American Championship Triple Threat, but he didn’t exactly lose that match either, with Joe Coffey taking the pin. But the Iron King and his cohorts were still furious, so they attacked Wes backstage, spurring on Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne to stand up for their friend. Will Wes, Bate & Dunne put these bullies in their place? Or will it still be Gallus Boys On Top?

The teams sort out and Bate starts against Wolfgang. They circle, tie up, and Wolfgang knees low! Wolfgang CLUBS Bate, UPPERCUTS him, then tags in Mark. They mug Bate, then Mark hits a headlock takeover. Cover, TWO as Bate gets an arm up> Mark pushes it down, cover, TWO! Bate and Mark rise with knuckle locks, and Bate drops to then headscissor hold Mark. Bate brings Mark to a corner, waves hi to the fans, then RANAS Mark away! Bate clamps onto an arm, tags Dunne, and Dunne goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the arm! The fans rally for Dunne as he wrenches Mark, wrangles him, and drops knees on the arm!

Dunne pulls on Mark’s other arm, bends the fingers, and the fans cheer as Dunne tortures Mark’s hand! Dunne pushes the arm down, floats to get the legs, and he hooks those up. Dunne pulls on Mark’s ears! Then Dunne fishhooks Mark, before he STOMPS the knees! Dunne gets the arm again, bends and twists the arm to isolate it, and STOMP it! The fans cheer as Dunne mocks Gallus. Joe runs in, Dunne dodges to GAMANGIRI Wolfgang! Joe blocks a kick but Dunne SLAPS him then ENZIGIRIS him! Dunne kicks Mark, tags in Wes, and they DOUBLE STOMP the hands! They DOUBLE BUZZSAW, and then Bate tags in!

Bate fireman’s carries Mark, Wes SUPERKICK-starts the AIRPLANE SPIN! Wes DIVES out onto Joe! Dunne runs in, ROCKS Mark, then PLANCHAS onto Wolfgang! Bate just keeps the spin going! The fans fire up as Bate goes around and around and around, way past TEN before the SLAM! Mark staggers out of the ring, Bate kips up, and Wes poses with New Catch Republic while NXT goes picture in picture.

Gallus regroups on the outside, then they huddle up. They talk strategy, and then Mark hurries back in. Mark runs up on Bate but runs into a headlock takeover! Bate grinds the hold, Mark fights up to his feet, but Bate BOPS him with his foot! And again! And again! Mark fires body shots, back suplexes, but Bate lands out! Bate headlocks, Wolfgang tags in as Mark powers out, and Wolfgang FLAPJACKS Bate off ropes! Wolfgang DECKS Bate, rains down fists, then drops a knee on Bate’s head! Cover, TWO!

Joe fires body shots, then whips Bate hard into a corner! Then he whips Bate back in! Then scoops for a BACKBREAKER! Bate is in the drop zone, Joe runs to VADER ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO!

Joe clamps on a rear bearhug and squeezes tight. Bate endures, fights up, and he throws elbows. Bate is free but Joe CLUBS him in the back! Joe HIP DROPS Bate down, then CLAWS Bate’s back! The ref reprimands but Joe drags Bate into another rear bearhug. Joe then shifts up to a full nelson as NXT returns to single picture. Bate fights, slips down and victory rolls, TWO! Bate runs up, but Joe catches him! Joe FLAPJACKS Bate, then DECKS Wes! Joe whips Bate in, then hits another BACKBREAKER! Tag to Wolfgang and he SENTONS! Cover, Dunne STOMPS it apart! The fans fire up but Wolfgang snarls.

Wolfgang tags Mark, they whip and POP-UP, but Bate RANAS Wolfgang! Mark whips Bate but Bate hits the REBOUNDER! The fans are thunderous as Bate crawls! Mark also crawls, hot tag to Joe and he uses a GLASGOW SENDOFF to take Dunne down! Joe roars and aims at Bate now, runs in but into a BOOT! Bate runs up, but into a back drop! Bate lands on his feet!! Hot tag to Wes! Wes baits Joe in, UPPERCUTS him, then BOOTS Wolfgang! ENZIGIRI for Wolfie, ELBOW for Joseph!

METEORA from Wes to Joe! Cover, TWO!! Joe survives and the fans are thunderous again! Wes goes to a corner and climbs, but Joe runs up! Wes LEAPS and takes out everyone else! Wes then resets on the corner, handspring and- NO, Joe dodges, ALL THE BEST FOR THE BELLS!! Cover, GALLUS WINS!!

Winners: Gallus, by pinfall

The numbers were even so there’s nothing Wes can say about this one. While they stumbled at Battleground, will nothing stop Gallus from making NXT their kingdom?


OTM regroups backstage.

Jaida is upset, obviously. Michin beating Miss Parker? Make it make sense! Bronco Nima says it don’t! If not for The Good Brothers, Jaida would’ve had Mia’s ass beat and she knows it! Nima says Michin knows nothing, and Lucien Price says that loss is on them because they should’ve known better. Jaida says it ain’t even like that. They go out there with her then head back because they know she’s got this. But Michin… If this is how she wants it, then so be it. Jaida will handle Mia and run her outta NXT. Miss Parker is all fired up, will she burn Michin for this one? Or will The OC make NXT Just Too Sweet?


Brinley Reece prepares backstage.

The energy’s high, she’s feeling good. Malik Blade & Edris Enofe are there, pumping Brin up. They know Brin will get this one, but just promise them she’ll be careful. Duh. Edris says Brin doesn’t need to promise anything. Malik says there’s just something in the air. Edris agrees, it doesn’t feel right. Brin says she loves the concern, but Wendy Choo? She’s a freakin’ sweetheart! This is gonna be such a fun time! Can’t wait! Malik and Edris confirm with each other that they’ve got a bad feeling about this, but could it just be paranoia? Or will Wendy not be so comfy cozy this time around?


Brinley Reece w/ Malik Blade & Edris Enofe VS Wendy Choo!

#BrinEnergy is always positive, and usually so is the Queen of Comfy Style. However, something seemed… different about Wendy in that last little video of hers. Wendy makes her entrance, and she has some rather spooky make-up on. Will it turn out that Malik & Edris were right about tonight? Or is this just Wendy going through a goth phase?

The bell rings and Wendy TACKLES Brin! Wendy fires off fists, Brin gets free and then scrambles to a corner! Wendy runs up to SPLASH, then she throws Brin down! Wendy laughs before the SLEEPY ELBOW! Brin scrambles away, completely confused! Wendy scurries up on Brin, grabs a leg, but Brin BOOTS free! Wendy just turns aright around to HEADBUTT! Wendy runs, SLIDING COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Brin survives and Wendy has a sinister smirk. Wendy runs up, Brin dodges, but Wendy comes back. Brin ELBOWS Wendy, gets around, ducks an elbow and KNEE SMASHES! Wendy staggers, and Brin LARIATS!

Brin fires up, LARIATS again, then scoops to SLAM! The fans fire up with Brin, but Wendy’s right up! Wendy gets around, hammerlock and PEPSI TWIST!! Then into a COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET!! Brin starts to fade, she taps out! Wendy wins!!

Winner: Wendy Choo, by submission

Brin was dreaming of a fun time in the ring, but went to sleep with a nightmare! Will Wendy Choo haunt everyone in NXT now that she’s back?


Ava Raine tweets.

After Oro Mensah’s third attack on Ethan Page, she has no choice but to suspend Oro Mensah this week to ensure the safety of both men. Will Main Man Mensah’s rage only grow worse for this?


Backstage interview with Roxanne Perez.

Byron Saxton finds the NXT Women’s Champion as she arrives “fashionably late,” and she tells him to just hurry up and ask. Byron says she is scheduled to give a “States of the Women’s Division” address, could she give a hint as to what that entails? Roxie says yeah, he saw her Match of the Night at Battleground. She was in an impossible situation against perhaps the most dominant woman in wrestling today, and here she stands, still champion. So yes, she will be addressing where she plans on taking this division- But then Robert Stone walks in. He asks Roxie what’s going on. He just wants to say congrats on the win, but also on behalf of Ava, what’s Roxie gonna talk about tonight?

Oh, does she wanna know? Roxie had to find out about her opponent when the world found out, so go tell your boss that she can wait to hear what Roxie has to say the same way. Roxie storms off, just what will The Prodigy have planned for her NXT Women’s Division?


Cody Rhodes is here!

The NXT Arena fires up for The American Nightmare and they sing along with the song, “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody gets the mic while the fans cheer, and Cody says it is magical here, isn’t it? And it is well known that there is a magic here in NXT, and perhaps Cody needed to be here today, to feel said magic as he heads towards Clash at the Castle, towards Scotland, and towards a WWE Championship defense against AJ Styles. “AJ Styles has been a lot of things. He was the IWGP Heavyweight Champion, the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, the WWE Champion. He was PWI’s Wrestler of the Decade.

“But for sure, one thing that you can add to that list after this Saturday is that AJ Styles… is going to look at all of Scotland, he is going to look at our referee, and he is going to look me in the eyes, and he is going to say… ‘I QUIT!'” The fans cheer that, and then they fire up more as Trick Williams makes his way out here! The fans chant “WHOOP DAT TRICK!” as THE NXT Champion is here to stand alongside THE WWE Champion! Trick says first thing’s first, we got Cody Rhodes in NXT! Everybody make some noise! The fans cheer, and Trick says he was on his way here, but then he saw Cody so he had to hold up and let Cody do his thing.

Now, Cody, Trick feels like they’ve had similar journeys. With all due respect, Cody’s at the top, Trick is doing his thing, they’re both champions. But they both had huge mountains to climb, had chips on their shoulders, all to get right here where they are today. The fans applaud that. Trick is jsut trying to say, now that they’ve both got their titles, now that they’re both on top of the mountain, it all feels different now. Instead of having something to chase, something they’ve wanted for so long, they’ve got it and people are attacking them. So Trick just wants to ask: How does Cody deal with all of this?

Cody rephrases that as, “How do you go from being the hunter to being the hunted?” Well, on the other side of that wall, all of their peers are watching Trick and Cody, and not going, “Oh man, go get ’em, Trick!” They are judging the champions, thinking they can wear the NXT title better than Trick and the WWE title better than Cody. But one thing to keep in mind, champ, is even though they’ve conquered the mountain, there’s always another mountain to climb. The fans like the tease, but Cody says let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The fans chant “Two Champ Trick!” but Cody says he has been granted the authority tonight by Ava.

Cody wants to let Trick now who his next challenger is going to be. That next challenger for the NXT Championship will be decided next week on NXT, in a 25 Man Over The Top Battle Royal! The fans like the sound of that! Cody says Trick may know some of them, but some might be from other locker rooms. The fans REALLY like the sound of that! Cody tells Trick, “Good luck, my friend.” Trick says hold on, Cody. There’s one more thing Trick’s gotta ask Cody. And it is very, very serious. With Fourth of July around the corner, and on behalf of all Trick’s people, they all wanna know… Is Cody coming to the cookout?

The fans cheer and Trick asks if they wanna see Cody come to the cookout. “YES! YES! YES!” Cody says YES, he is coming to the cookout! Trick is all fired up, he and Cody do the secret handshake and they hug it out. Trick says play Cody’s music. Cody and Trick raise their belts, but that battle royal is going to be huge! Are we going to see a star studded field fighting for a chance to #WhoopDatTrick?


Backstage interview with Dante Chen.

Sarah Schreiber finds the Singapore Warrior, Singapore cane already in hand, as he heads for gorilla. She asks says his rivalry with Lexis King is coming to a head tonight with their Singapore Cane match. How is Dante feeling? Dante says he is ready. Lexis can dismiss Dante’s other two victories, but tonight, Dante leaves a lasting impression on him when he tattoos Lexis’ body with cane shots. Dante SMACKS away on spare railing, and he says his cane shots will bring discipline. Tonight, Dante ends things on his terms. Dante heads out, will he strike The Drama King right on the crown?


The NXT Women’s Division talks Battleground.

Kelani Jordan: history maker! They’re so excited that she won. Oh, Wendy, hi! Great to see you back, and great win out there. This is Carlee Bright, she’s new to NXT and- Oh… Wendy’s spooky smile stops Carlee in her tracks. Wendy leaves and Carlee asks if she said something wrong. Isn’t Wendy supposed to be the nice one…?


Singapore Cane Match: Lexis King VS Dante Chen!

As Dante said, The Drama King would not accept his previous losses with dignity, so it came to this! Nothing is going to hold these two back from unleashing all their frustrations, but who will withstand it all to stand tall?

Well, why wait? Dante SMACKS Lexis right at the ramp! The fans fire up as Dante snarls and SMACKS Lexis again! And again! Dante swings again, Lexis ducks and the cane hits post! Lexis gets int he ring, Dante follows, the bell rings and Dante TACKLES Lexis! Dante rains down fists, the fans fire up, but Lexis gets free. Dante kicks low, whips, and back drops! Lexis flounders, Dante grabs another cane! Lexis has one, too, and he SMACKS Dante back! Dante SMACKS Lexis in return! Lexis wobbles, SMACKS, but Dante SMACKS! They go back and forth, Dante gets the edge as he SMACKS Lexis again and again!

Lexis CHUCKS the cane into Dante’s face! Lexis then SUPERKICKS Dante, rains down fists, and the fans boo. Lexis lets off to talk trash, and he gets another cane. Lexis gathers up canes, in fact, and piles them together at the center of the ring. Lexis goes for Dante but Dante kicks back. Lexis BOOTS Dante, CHOPS him, then whips to back drop! Dante narrowly avoids the canes, but Lexis KICKS him in the back! Lexis SMACKS Dante with a stick, puts it back on the pile, then scoops Dante for a SLAM onto the canes! Cover, TWO! Lexis is annoyed, he CHOKES Dante with the cane, then JAMS it into the throat!! Then he SMACKS Dante on the back!

That cane is broken so Lexis uses another. Dante hits back but Lexis SMACKS him! Lexis CHOKES Dante in a corner, and digs his boots in! The fans boo but Dante fights free. Lexis grabs another cane, but Dante ROCKS him first! And CHOPS! And ROCKS! Dante and Lexis fight over the cane, but Lexis HEADBUTTS! Lexis CLOBBERS Dante, then SMACKS him! Cover, TWO! Lexis grinds the cane into Dante’s face while putting on the chinlock. The fans rally for Dante as he fights up, but Lexis thrashes Dante around! The fans still rally, and Dante still fight sup. Dante pries the stick away, to turn things around on Lexis!

Lexis flails as he’s in a cane choke hold, but he RAMS Dante into buckles! Lexis snapmares free and CROWNS Dante with the blindside knee! Cover, TWO!! Dante survives and Lexis is furious! Lexis SMACKS away on Dante, then he rips up that cane so he can wedge it into a corner! Lexis brings Dante up but Dante ELBOWS, UPPERCUTS, but Lexis SUPERKICKS and CHOPS! Lexis whips, Dante reverses, and Lexis runs into the stick! It gets Lexis real low, too! Dante snarls, grabs another cane, and Lexis begs for mercy. He only gets SMACK after SMACK after SMACK instead! The fans are thunderous as Dante breaks the cane on Lexis’s body!!

Dante gets another cane, whisp Lexis, and SMACKS him right down! And SMACKS him again! And again! Dante runs to CANE KICK COMBO!! Cover, TWO!! The fans fire up for “NXT! NXT!” and Dante gets up. Dante has stripes on him but he still pushes Lexis. MONKEY FLIP! Lexis gets up, Dante clotheslines him up and out! Dante has the cane, runs to builds speed, CANE TOPE SUICIDA!! The fans are thunderous, and Dante just gets more canes! Dante SMACKS Lexis on the back, SMACKS him int he ribs, then SMACKS him on the back again! But Lexis LOW BLOWS using his walking cane! The fans boo as Lexis puts Dante in the ring!

Lexis CLOBBERS Dante with his “scepter,” then CLOBBERS Dante again! And using the scepter, CORONATION!! Cover, Lexis wins!

Winner: Lexis King, by pinfall

The fans are not happy, but Lexis King doesn’t care. He stands tall over Dante after stooping to new lows. Will Lexis make sure he’s the only one to reign over NXT?


Jacy Jayne & Jazmyn Nyx talk backstage.

Jacy wonders what happened to her, but Jazmyn says she looks fine, really. Cody walks over and says just the person he was hoping to see. He has some things he wants to give Jacy. Really? Yes. He brings out his old Dashing Cody Rhodes face mask! Jazmyn & Jacy are actually honored to have this piece of history. Will Jacy use this so she can have a clear path back to the top of NXT?


Mia Yim leaves Ava’s office.

Michin thanks the GM, and The Good Brothers are there to ask what’s up. Mia says the next time Jaida wants to bring weapons into a match, that ass whooping will be unreal. However, W’s get rewards, so guess who is the first challenger for Kelani’s North American Championship? Now that’s Too Sweet! Mia says they don’t even need to worry about four others, it will be 1v1. And though she’s part of a group, she is the HBIC, and the NEW NA Champion. Anderson says this is it. AJ Styles will win the WWE Championship at The Clash, Mia will taste the gold. Too Sweet, baby! Is The OC about to take over all of the WWE?


Wait, someone is going after commentary!

Who was that? Didn’t this happen a week ago? What is going on in NXT?


Eddy Thorpe VS Tavion Heights!

The Alpha Wolf meditated, and he is now motivated to carry on the legacy of the great Native American superstars of the past. Will Eddy reach those new heights? Or will he fail to get past these Heights his first night back?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, fans duel, but Eddy wrenches Tavion to a wristlock. Tavion powers through to SPINEBUSTER, then he floats to facelock. Tavion floats to waistlock, but Eddy slips out to hammerlock. Tavion switches that onto Eddy then facelocks, but Eddy goes to the ROPEBREAK!

Winner: Eddy Thorpe, by pinfall

The Alpha Wolf makes a victorious return, will his warpath lead him to the top of the mountain?


The No Quarter Catch Crew watches this backstage.

Damon Kemp has his beef against Eddy Thorpe, but Charlie Dempsey is more focused on Tavion Heights. Myles, go get him and bring him here. Wait, what? What for? Myles, just go get Tavion. GO. GET. HIM. Myles says okay, right. Charlie says there is strength in numbers, they might try expanding the crew. Kemp isn’t sure, they’re barely able to figure Dempsey out. Right? Heh. Dempsey asks if that’s so. Does Kemp think he’s funny? Because maybe if Kemp didn’t drop two straight to Tony D, they’d have the Heritage Cup back. Now look where they are. Don’t you dare question Dempsey. Now Myles, go get Tavion! Okay, okay!

Myles hurries out, but will the crew going back to four really help them turn things around?


Ava Raine talks with Robert Stone.

They’re back in Orlando, and they’re still dealing with Roxie. Speaking of, Stone brings up his talk with her earlier, and she wouldn’t say anything about it. Ava says that’s alright, Roxie’s a bit unpredictable. Stone just feels bad because Roxie’s gonna get her time to get at Ava- but then in walks Stevie Turner. She says hello to Lady Ava and Mr. Stone. But were they just talking about Roxie? Because Stevie overheard Roxie is gonna call out Ava for an apology. Oh, Roxie thinks she’s getting one? Good thing she doesn’t get paid for thinking. But thanks, Stevie, Ava appreciates the heads up. Oh, Ava has to take this call. Can she have the room?

Stevie and Stone exit, and Ava talks with…? Well, it must be important business, so will there be big things in the near future for NXT?


Shawn Spears VS Je’Von Evans!

The Chair Man tried to make himself the mentor to the young minds of the NXT locker room, but the Young OG wasn’t having it. Will Evans prove that Spears can take his advice somewhere else? Or will there be more “truth” brought painfully to light?

The bell rings and Spears throws his hood at Evans! Then he fires off hands! Evans turns things around to CHOP and CHOP and whip. Spears reverses but Evans ducks ‘n’ dodges, only for Spears to THESZ PRESS! Spears throws down hands then he stomps Evan’s in the head!

Winner: Shawn Spears, by pinfall

Spears knew all about Evans’ athletic ability and used that against him! Will The Chair Man continue to prove why NXT should follow him?


Nathan Frazer & Axiom show off their Vegas pictures.

Good stuff, they sure had some fun. Tyler Bate says Frazer should cheer up, though. They beat the Good Brothers at Battleground! No, man, he can’t celebrate any more than they did that night. Aw, of course he can! But then in steps The D’Angelo Family. Tony says check out the party animals! To be honest, Tony didn’t think they had that in them. Axiom says yeah, they’re full of surprises. The Don is riding high, too, retaining the Heritage Cup. But he thinks these gents could use a refresher in the heritage of the Cup. Dunne says Tony’s not about to lecture him and Bate on the history of British wrestling, is he?

Bate points out his name is on that cup. Axiom says yeah, and his best friend A-Kid, and Frazer, too. Speaking of, Frazer is staring at the cup. Tony has Frazer snap out of it. Axiom admits that’s true, Frazer needs to remember they’re tag team champions. Stacks says yeah, for now. Tony has his Underboss stand down. They’ll give them all a lesson, later. The D’Angelo Family leaves, and Axiom wants Frazer to remember: tag team champions. Frazer knows that. He just misses the Cup. Well, he can’t possibly do both, can he? Frazer says of course he can. Frazer’s motto may be #NeverSlowDown, but is it wise to divide his attention?


Shawn Spears finds Cody Rhodes backstage.

The Chair Man tells The American Nightmare that Cody won the Royal Rumble and got his. Now Spears is gonna win the battle royal and get his own. Cody believes that. Ethan Page walks over and says he’s in the battle royal, too. Is Cody not gonna wish him luck? And then Lexis King says HE will win that battle royal. Cody says it seems these guys are all in a good place now. Cody leaves, and it seems there’s some elite competition coming for Trick Williams. But who survives the battle royal to head for Heatwave in Toronto?


Roxanne Perez heads to the ring!

The fans are torn as The Prodigy makes her way out, the red carpet and some plants set up for her State of the Women’s Division Address. Roxie gets a mic to say, “And still~ your NXT Women’s Champion, The Prodigy, Roxanne Perez. Here I stand at the top of the greatest women’s division in all of wrestling today! And I told you guys that I was gonna protect this title. But not only did I do that, at Battleground, I proved to everyone that there truly is levels to this. And no one in this world is on mine.

“But it’s okay! Don’t feel the need to thank me all at once to make sure that this championship stays in NXT. You all are just finding out what I’ve always known. But um, there is one woman who does need to come out here and thank me. So Ava, why don’t you come on out here. I don’t think you wanna make the champ wait.” The NXT General Manager does make her way out here, and Ava says she had a feeling this would happen. And she assumes Roxie wants congratulations for her win. So congrats! But Ava isn’t sure what Roxie wants Ava to thank her for. This is just part of being a great champion.

We all know it isn’t about what you say but what you do. It’s about who you face and who you defeat, how you carry yourself and- Roxie says of course, of course, Ava! That’s why you’re just the perfect GM! Ava always finds a way to make this all about herself. But get this: Whoever Ava arranges for Roxie, whoever she puts in line, Roxie will always find a way to win. There is not one woman who can take this title from her! But then wait! Here comes Jacy Jayne & Jazmyn Nyx! Are Jacy’s ears deceiving her, or is Roxie taking credit for the entire locker room? Jazmyn says no, that’s what it sounds like to her, too.

These two get in the ring and tell Roxie that eve since she won the title, it seems Roxie lost her sweet and innocent side. And she damn sure lost her memory! Because long before Roxie ever signed here, Jacy was one of the main reasons everyone tuned in to NXT! Before Roxie’s little Breakout Tournament win and all her title reigns, Roxie couldn’t even reference the NXT Women’s Division without talking about Jacy! Jazmyn says Roxie must’ve forgotten that the biggest threats to her title are the ones under this roof. Roxie says okay, okay, so this is where the line starts? But then “SKRRRRR~!” Lash Legend & Jakara Jackson make their way out!

And Lash tells “Bat Girl & Robin” to slow down. While Jacy was out getting that beak fixed and Jazmyn is trying to be a wannabe Kim K wannabe, Meta Four was actually making headlines and making moments. Jakara says that’s right! And with Lash just inches from that Women’s North American Championship and bringing gold back to Meta Four, they’ll still go after Kelani. But uh, since Roxie’s taking credit for everybody’s work, it’s on sight! Roxie finds herself surrounded, but wait! Here comes Lola Vice! And she says no, Roxie can’t talk about Battleground without bringing up NXT Underground.

But yeah, we get it. Roxie proved she’s different. But so did Lola. These fists don’t lie. Lola storms in to join everyone, and says it is only a matter of time before it’s her time. And she knows this look. They all want what Roxie has, but Roxie’s on another level. A level only matched by Lola. So now, this conversation is only between the champion, and the next champion. Jakara tells Lola to shake her happy ass right outta here. Lola ROUNDHOUSES Jakara down! Lash DECKS Lola! Jacy & Jazmyn go after Lash but she pushes them both down! They come back to DOUBLE LARIAT Lash out! Lola & Roxie DUMP Jacy & Jazmyn, then they TOSS Jakara!

The fans fire up as Lola stands alongside Roxie, but there are a lot of bad, bad women ready to fight for the gold! Who will prove to be the baddest of them all when NXT turns up the heat in Toronto?

My Thoughts:

A great NXT to follow up Battleground but also pivot right towards Heatwave. Great appearance by Cody tonight with a really good promo with him and Trick. That 25 Man Battle Royal being open to more than just NXT is great stuff, and I also liked Cody meeting up with the other former AEW talent backstage. But seeing as how Ethan just had his shot, I don’t think he’s winning. The Singapore Cane match was great stuff, but I should’ve figured Lexis would win since he was already 0-2. And Spears VS Evans was a great main event match, Evans looked great, but it made sense for Spears to win out. But even, then, I don’t see Spears and Evans winning the battle royal, either.

Good opening promo from Kelani, and good segue into Mia VS Jaida. Good stuff with Good Brothers getting involved to stop Jaida, and Mia VS Kelani next week will be a solid first defense for Kelani. Good return match for Wendy as she puts on this hybrid persona. Reminds me of when Alexa Bliss was being a hybrid of herself and spooky Alexa that was with The Fiend. This new character might be just what Wendy needs to get up to a title opportunity herself. For that matter, that closing segment sure brought out a lot of Heels to go after the already Heel champion. But Roxie definitely stepped in it saying no one woman can beat her. There’s a very good chance she’ll have to face Lash, Lola and even Jacy in a big title match, thereby protecting Roxie if she were to lose.

Great stuff with Chase U, with Thea getting all the guys to listen to reason. At the same time, it might not last long if the team can’t start winning things again. Good return win for Eddy, and it is intriguing that Dempsey is looking to recruit Tavion. Tavion being a collegiate wrestler does fit the NQCC’s style, and maybe he and Kemp form a tag team so the crew can get back in the tag title scene. Speaking of, good promo from the tag champs with New Catch Republic and The D’Angelo Family. I feel like there should be some kind of deal struck: Tony will give Frazer a shot at the Cup if Frazer & Axiom give Stacks & Luca another shot at the tag titles. And there’s a good chance that Stacks & Luca make good on the tag title shot, even with Frazer saying he can be a good double champion.

And really good Six Man Tag of Wes & New Catch Republic VS Gallus. I’m rather surprised Gallus won, but I suppose it makes sense when they’re the unit that’s been together a long time while this was the first time Wes teamed with Bate & Dunne. I would think Wes and Joe Coffey get in on that battle royal, and it’d be pretty awesome if Wes won to officially move him up to the top title scene. At the same time, not sure they’d pit two fan favorites against each other like that. Maybe Gallus makes sure one of their own wins, they challenge and fail at Heatwave, and we see Wes build up in the background while others go after Trick.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?


Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away! Truth flounders to his corner, Turbo tags in, and Turbo steps up to Bill. Jericho isn’t even taking this match seriously, he’s checking his phone! Bill knees Turbo low, CLUBS him down, but Truth tags back in. Truth runs and leaps, but Bill catches him! Bill grins, gives a thumbs up, then SLAMS Truth down! Bill says the fans know what’s up. But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy. Bill puts Turbo in a corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! And he fires off haymaker after haymaker! Bill laughs as he stomps a mudhole into Turbo! The ref counts but Bill keeps going! Bill lets off, laughs some more, and Jericho says look out. Truth CHOPS Bill, but then he begs for forgiveness.

Bill powers Truth to a corner with one hand! Then he runs to SPLASH Turbo! SPLASH for Truth, SPLASH for Turbo! BOOT for Truth, and then Bill choke grips Turbo. SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! And then he tags Jericho! Jericho smirks and waves to the fans. “Hi, guys~!” Cover, Jericho & Bill win!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own. Butcher RAMS Suzuki into a corner, the ref counts, but Butcher lets off at 4. Suzuki eggs Butcher on but Butcher pie faces Suzuki. Butcher dares Suzuki to bring it, so Suzuki fires off fast hands and forearms! Suzuki ROCKS Butcher in the corner, then goes corner to corner, so he can BOOT! Butcher staggers, Suzuki snapmares him, then runs to PENALTY- NO! Butcher blocks the kick! Butcher CLUBS the leg, then trips Suzuki.

Butcher has a standing toehold as he traps one of Suzuki’s legs. Suzuki just eggs Butcher on! Butcher stomps the leg, drops an elbow on it, then he drags Suzuki up. Butcher CLUBS Suzuki, but Suzuki just snarls. Butcher CHOPS, but Suzuki isn’t impressed. Butcher CHOPS again, Suzuki eggs him on, so Butcher fires more CHOPS! Suzuki just laughs! Butcher ROCKS Suzuki, kicks low, then kicks again. Butcher reels Suzuki in to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! The fans rally for Suzuki and he fires body shots on Butcher. Suzuki ROCKS Butcher, but Butcher HEADBUTTS! Butcher vows to break Suzuki’s back!

Butcher half nelsons, but Suzuki slips around to waistlock. Butcher elbows free, runs, but Suzuki follows, drop steps to get around, and has the SLEEPER! Suzuki wrangles Butcher, squeezes tight, but Butcher endures. Suzuki spins Butcher around and reels him in, and the fans fire up for the Gotch Lift! Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?


The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?


Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?


Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?


BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?


The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

The teams sort out and Fenix starts against Brother Zay. The fans rally, Zay offers a handshake, and Fenix takes it. But then Fenix ROCKS Zay! Zay ROCKS Fenix back, they fire forearms, and Zay fires forearms again and again. Zay whips, Fenix springboards to CROSSBODY! Fenix kicks, SOBATS, KICKS a leg, then kicks again, but Zay blocks! Zay steps over, GAMANGIRI! Zay runs, but Fenix pops him up, only for Zay to RANA! Zay whips, Fenix reverses but Zay reverses back. Fenix goes up and out to the apron, Zay runs in, Fenix dodges the triangle jump, and then Fenix slingshot SENTONS! Fenix stands Zay up, but Zay fights the underhooks!

Zay RAMS Fenix into the corner, tags Quen, and Quen rolls Fenix up, TWO! Fenix comes back, but gets a pop-up DROPKICK for it! Penta tags in and the fans fire up! Penta blocks, Quen blocks then Quen ROCKS Penta! Quen goes up, brings Penta to the top with him, but Penta CLUBS Quen! Penta SUPERKICKS Quen, then slingshots up to SUPER RANA Quen away! The fans fire up, Quen returns but Penta BOOTS him! Quen tries again, Penta pops him up and SUPERKICKS him while upside-down! Quen flops to the apron then the floor and the fans fire up. Penta builds speed, but Zay CROSSBODIES him!

Fenix MISSILE DROPKICKS Zay! Quen returns to PELE Fenix! Penta SUPERKICKS Quen! All four men are down and the fans fire up! Zay and Fenix bail out, Penta and Quen slowly stand up. Penta eggs Quen on, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back! But Fenix fights the suplex, wrenches out, and KICKS Zay!

Fenix reels Zay in, but then Zay wrenches out. Zay reels Fenix back in, but Fenix wrenches out to mule kick. Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” but Zay wrenches out to ROCK Fenix! Zay eggs Fenix on, pie faces, and he fires a forearm! Fenix fires back, they go back and forth, and the fans rally up. Fenix and Zay huff ‘n’ puff, and they keep throwing shots! Zay gets the edge, but Fenix returns in kind! Rampage returns to single picture as they both throw forearms at the same time, again and again! It is fast and furious and the fans love it! Penta runs in just to BLAST Quen! The Lucha Bros mug Zay, double whip, but Quen is there for some SILLY STRONG!

Penta flounders out, Quen HOTSHOTS Fenix! Zay brings Fenix around, Quen goes up, AFTER PARTY STOMPS! Quen goes up and up to ESCALARA SENTON onto Penta! Zay SWANTON BOMBS Fenix! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and shocks Zay! The fans rally up and Zay brings Fenix up. Tag to Quen, and Private Party puts Fenix up top. Quen runs up, GIN- NO, Fenix holds onto the corner and Quen tumbles! Penta also waistlocks Zay but Zay fights free with elbows. Penta shoves Zay so that Fenix can tightrope walk PENALTY KICK! Then Penta SLINGBLADES Zay down! Quen gets in, he gets a SLINGBLADE, too!

The fans fire up for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta brings Quen in but Quen slips free and shoves Penta into Fenix! Fenix lands on his firebird and Quen helps Zay up. GIN & JUICE!! Cover, but Penta returns to break it and hit a DESTROYER on Zay!! Quen is shocked while Little Rock is thunderous! “This is Awesome!” as “A E DUB!” gives us this main event. Quen drags Fenix up but Fenix CHOPS! Fenix eggs Quen on so Quen stomps away on him! Quen drags Fenix up, reels him in, but Fenix wrenches out to underhook and BUTTERFLY ANARCHY! Cover, TWO!! Fenix tags Penta and they aim at Zay. DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Quen is alone, “UNO! DOS! TRES!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for him, too! Then Penta drags Quen up and Fenix goes up! Tuck and “CERO! MIEDO!” LB PILEDRIVER!! Then Fenix DIVES onto Zay for good measure! Penta covers, Lucha Brothers win!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (7/19/24)

Cody Rhodes won’t back down!



The American Nightmare is seeing red!

After last week’s brutal attack by The Bloodline, Cody Rhodes will open tonight’s SmackDown to show he is not intimidated by their actions!


  • Andrade VS Carmelo Hayes; Andrade wins.
  • Bianca Belair w/ Jade Cargill VS Chelsea Green w/ Piper Niven; Bianca wins.
  • Mia Yim VS Tiffany Stratton w/ Nia Jax; Mia wins.
  • Cody Rhodes & Kevin Owens VS A-Town Down Under; Cody & Kevin win.


Cody Rhodes is here!

Omaha, Nebraska fires up as The American Nightmare makes his way out. The fans sing along with the song, “WHOA~ OH~!” The pyro goes off, Cody high-fives fans and even gives some autographs as he continues down the ramp. Cody fist-bumps Omaha’s own Terence Crawford, who is preparing for his own boxing championship defense, and then Cody steps into the ring. The fans chant Cody’s name while he grabs a mic. “So, Omaha! What do we wanna talk about? Let’s talk about Randy Orton.” Cody has the distinction and honor of calling Randy Orton a friend. Before that, Randy was a mentor.

Randy chose Cody when he didn’t have to, when he was told to discard Cody. Cody would not be here as Undisputed WWE Champion without Randy Orton. The fans cheer that, and even chant for “Randy! Randy!” Cody says, “So imagine the guilt when a man who has a lovely wife, a beautiful family, five children, a man who came back from what could’ve been a career ending injury and had spinal fusion surgery, imagine my guilt watching this Bloodline put Randy Orton through a table.” The fans boo, and Cody says family is not always blood. How’s the song go? Wrestling has more than one royal family. Randy is Cody’s family. Randy is Cody’s brother!

And if Randy were here, he wouldn’t want Cody to wax poetic or talk about guilt and shame. The difference between the two is the difference of being bad and doing something bad. Cody will instead look directly into the camera, and he will talk right to the man responsible: Solo Sikoa. The fans boo that name. Cody looked Solo in the eyes before WrestleMania 39 even, and told him, “You are not ready.” Then Solo paid Cody back in kind by costing him the title he has now, the title they will fight for in the main event of SummerSlam.

“Solo, with everything you have done trying to erase your time as The Enforcer–that’s a cute nickname, by the way–and instead become the Tribal Chief, how does it feel knowing that I am still standing here in this ring, still champion, and that you are still not-” A-Town Down Under interrupts? The fans boo as Austin Theory & Grayson Waller strut out here, and Theory starts by saying, “Cody, Cody Rhodes. Cody, you’re spending a lot of time talking about The Bloodline, but because of you, Jacob Fatu from The Bloodline attacked me last week.” Look at his face! It’s swollen! Cody thought that was from his own partner hitting him in the face.

Waller says nice try, Cody, trying to deflect from how Cody can’t take responsibility for his own actions. Theory got attacked last week was because of Cody. And the reason Cody’s mentor, hero and friend, Randy Orton, the reason Cody won the title, the reason Randy got hurt is because of Cody. The fans boo but ATDU step into the ring. But Cody fires off on tehm first! The fans fire up but he still gets mugged 2v1! The fans boo again as Theory & Waller stomp Cody down. Waller TOSSES Cody out, but Terence says here, have his chair! Cody uses that chair to JAM Waller and SMACK him down!

Then Cody tosses the chair to Theory so he can DISASTER KICK it into Theory’s face! ATDU bails out and the fans fire up! Cody has chair and championship, will he need both of those to thwart The Bloodline?


Carmelo Hayes gets a quick trim.

He has his guy tidy up the edges, and then says there won’t be chants or gimmick BS. He tells Andrade that it’ll be them, “two hoopers,” one on one, going hard in the paint, and the world will be waiting to see who misses first. And it won’t be H1M. Melo heads out, but will he dunk on Andrade? Or will El Idolo show this isn’t Melo’s game, it’s his?


Cody finds Nick Aldis backstage.

Cody says it is a 100% freebie, he wants a match with A-Town Down Under. Aldis says he can do that, but he’ll need a tag team partner. Cody says no, he needs to send a message to The Bloodline. Aldis gets that, but hey, if he sends the WWE Champion out into a Handicap Match, Aldis will have to answer to the Board of Directors. So respectfully, Cody has until the end of tonight to find a partner. The American Nightmare has his mission, will he find someone who wants to take the fight to the former tag team champions?


Andrade VS Carmelo Hayes!

El Idolo has been NXT Champion, just like H1M, but he’s also been WWE United States Champion and is currently WWE Speed Champion. Will Andrade make Melo respect him? Or will no one humble Melo when he hits Nothing But Net?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and Andrade headlocks. Melo powers up and out but Andrade runs him over. Things keep moving, Melo hurdles then Andrade leaps over. Melo rolls off Andrade’s back, comes back, and tilt-o-whirl RANAS, only for Andrade to handspring through! Melo runs up again, sunset flips, ONE!! Melo grabs at legs but Andrade boots him away. Andrade then trips Melo, steps through, but Melo kicks him away. The fans cheer the standoff while Melo frowns. Andrade runs but he turns Melo’s dropdown into a rolling sunset, TWO! Melo jackknife bridges, TWO!

Both men stand, both men ROCK each other with forearms, then the forearms start flying! Andrade runs but Melo ROCKS him! Melo runs but Andrade BOOTS him! Andrade steadies himself before he runs, but then Melo DROPKICKS him! Melo runs, but Andrade follows! Andrade jumps up onto the ropes with Melo! Melo slips away to trip Andrade up! Andrade is stuck in ropes, Melo still hits a FADE AWAY JUMPER! The fans fire up for that leg drop, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Andrade endures an armlock. The fans rally, Andrade fights up, and he throws body shots. Melo holds onto the armlock, but Andrade fires more shots! Then he JAWBREAKERS free! Melo knees, whips, but Andrade reverses. Andrade then follows, but Melo dodges, only for the SOUTHPAW LARIAT to hit! The fans fire up while both men are down! Melo and Andrade slowly sit up, and fans rally. Melo throws a haymaker, but Andrade eggs him on! Melo fires another, but Andrade SLAPS and SLAPS with palm strikes! Andrade blocks a kick to DRAGON SCREW! Then another DRAGON SCREW!

Melo hobbles up, swings, but misses! Andrade FLYING FOREARMS and both men are down again! The fans rally, Andrade kips up! The fans cheer as Andrade snarls. Andrade calls his shot, the fans rally behind him with “SI! SI! SI!” Andrade gets moving, CIEN SHADOWS! Cover, TWO!! Melo survives, showing why he was NXT and NXT North American Champion in his career. Andrade brings Melo up, reels him in, but Melo slips free of the suplex! Melo rebounds to LA MYSTICA! Cover, TWO! Andrade stays in this and Melo grows frustrated. Melo drags Andrade up, “This is Awesome!” as Melo puts Andrade in a corner.

Melo hoists Andrade up to the top rope backwards. Melo then climbs up behind Andrade, brings Andrade up, but Andrade fires elbows! Melo falls back and the fans fire up! Andrade adjusts, and he MOONSAULTS! Melo moves but Andrade MOONSAULTS again! Cover, TWO!! Melo survives and shocks Andrade! Andrade huffs ‘n’ puffs and brings Melo up. Andrade reels Melo in, back suplexes, but Melo lands out! Melo dodges again, kicks a leg out, then runs up, into a CHOP! Melo returns to KNEE anyway! Melo keeps moving, boot feint and ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Melo survives again but Andrade puts him in the drop zone.

Andrade goes to a corner and climbs up. The fans cheer as he reaches the top. Andrade aims, leaps, but into the FIRST 48! Cover, TWO!! Andrade survives that half court shot but Melo hurries back to the corner! Melo climbs, aims, and NOTHING BUT- NO! Airball, and Andrade scoops! Melo slips free, only to end up in underhooks! THE MESSAGE!! Cover, Andrade wins!

Winner: Andrade, by pinfall

El Idolo called his shot last week, and he hits the mark! But now that Andrade is through with H1M, will he be moving on to bigger and better?


Bayley and Nia Jax sit down for video chat interviews.

The Role Model WWE Women’s Champion and the Irresistible Queen of the Ring are in separate locations as Corey Graves interviews them. He wants to ask Nia about Cleveland but she says just stop. Look at her, and look at Bayley. Start feeling sorry for Bayley right now, because at SummerSlam, Nia beats Bayley, takes her title, and puts her down like an old, sick dog. Nia will put Bayley out of Nia’s misery. Bayley says wow, Nia hasn’t changed in the ten years they’ve known each other. Nia says oh no, she has changed. And before going on too long, Nia is Queen of the Ring, so address her as “Queen Nia.”

Bayley says she’ll address Nia how she wants. And Nia should know what Bayley meant by that. Nia is the same heartless woman she was since day one here. The same big mouth, and the attitude like she owns this place. The same Nia that in 2017, took Bayley out of her SummerSlam match. Oh, we’re going there now? Yes, they are, and let Bayley finish talking. Nia took Bayley out, that changed the trajectory of Bayley’s whole career. But Nia didn’t hurt Bayley because she’s so much bigger and stronger than Bayley or that she’s so vicious. Nia did it because she’s big, clumsy, and reckless. Nia gets pissed now!

Nia says honestly, Bayley, she is pretty content being Queen of the Ring, the Queen of WWE! Nia is on top! She’s coming for that title just because she can take it from Bayley! Well, then, bad news there. Don’t listen to what the fans are saying that Nia is bigger or that she’ll mop the floor with Bayley. No, Bayley wants Nia to look at her now, and if she’s changed so much since 2017, then so has Bayley. Bayley walks into SummerSlam with the championship, and she walks out with the championship! And there is nothing Nia can do to stop her. Bayley smiles but Nia asks if they’re done. Nia throws off her mic and storms off. Who will prove they’re THE top of the division when WWE arrives in The Land?


Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill head for Aldis’ office.

But before they can reach the door, Piper Niven & Chelsea Green stand in their way. Sorry, are they lost? They’re here to talk to Mr. Aldis. Uh, girl, nuh-uh. Not before Bianca & Jade do. They need to get that tag title rematch. Aw, they’re gonna complain about losing because they’re big complaining losers? Uh, isn’t that what Chelsea’s about to do? Piper says you don’t talk about Chelsea like that. Yeah, that’s how they’re talking about Bianca & Jade. So scoot on over, because Piper & Chelsea are talking to Aldis first! Jade steps to the door but Bianca says no no, it’s fine. They can talk with Aldis later, because these two are on Bianca’s nerves.

If they can’t decide on who talks with Aldis first, they can decide this in the ring. Jade likes that idea, too. Piper also likes that idea, but Chelsea doesn’t. Bianca & Jade say bye~ and head for gorilla position. Will The EST give Chelsea something to complain to Aldis about? Or can the Hot Mess prove she can back up all that talk?

Bianca Belair w/ Jade Cargill VS Chelsea Green w/ Piper Niven!

SmackDown returns as Chelsea makes her entrance, accompanied by “Lil’ Miss P.” The bell rings and Chelsea talks trash on Bianca. Then she SLAPS her! So Bianca SLAPS back! Bianca storms up, Chelsea dodges and Bianca runs into buckles! Chelsea then ENZIGIRIS Bianca, reels her in for chicken wings, but Bianca powers out. Bianca runs, gets around, waistlocks and GERMAN SUPLEXES! The fans fire up while Chelsea flounders. Bianca handsprings but Chelsea avoids the moonsault! Chelsea runs up but Bianca gets under the boot! Torture rack, but Chelsea flails free! O’Conner Roll, with tights! TWO!! Bianca has Chelsea’s legs, BIANCA WINS!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

Chelsea is already complaining and protesting to the ref! But then Jade and Piper step in, only for Chelsea to say time to go. The StrongEST Duo stands tall, but then someone is laughing. Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn are on the tron! And Isla says they’ve heard Bianca & Jade are looking for them. And they just love how the two have been so passionate about their titles. Alba says they get it, when you’re champions, you’ve got all the power! And right now, the power belongs to Alba & Isla. But lucky for Bianca & Jade, they’ll get a tiny glimpse at these belts next week. But when it comes to a rematch…? Well, we’ll see.

Alba & Isla laugh into the night, but will even the wicked witches fall victim to the forces of nature coming for them?


Nick Aldis is in the ring.

The SmackDown General Manager says as we all know, SummerSlam is right around the corner. And as GM, it is his responsibility to deliver the biggest and best matches he possibly can. With that in mind, he holds a contract signed by himself and by LA Knight. This match is for the United States Championship, so all that is left is the signature of THE United states Champion. Without further ado, please welcome first, the challenger, LA Knight! Omaha fires up for The Mega Star makes his way to the ring. Knight joins Aldis in the ring, and Aldis says now welcome the champion, Logan Paul!

Many fans boo as The Maverick makes his way out, but there are still some fans who want fist bumps. Logan tells the fans to get louder one way or another as he steps into the ring. Logan is given the mic while fans continue to boo, and others chant for “L A KNIGHT! L A KNIGHT!” Aldis shows Logan the contract, Logan asks Omaha a question. Why would he give “Hillbilly Aladdin,” this Sons of Anarchy extra, this Larry the Lobster guy a shot at the United States Championship? Knight tells the “edge lord” to look at him. Logan talks about no reason for facing Knight, and y’know, maybe he’s right. Maybe Logan can just take a walk and we’ll think about this later.

But the one thing Knight thinks about is, he just thinks the one reason Logan should reconsider is that every time they have been face to face, Knight has owned and cooked Logan. The fans cheer that! So let’s go back just a year ago. Knight walks down that aisle, “YEAH!” He gave Logan a map, “YEAH!” And he said that map gave exact directions. “YEAH!” Those directions were for where Logan could shove each and every bottle of Prime! “YEAH!” That was last year. But since then, Logan became US Champ, congrats to you. Logan thanks Knight for that. Knight admits, if Logan’s holding a title, that makes him the man around here.

But Knight figured to himself, maybe time for Knight’s shot. Knight asks, Logan says no. Knight shows up at Logan’s house, his idiot friends let Knight in and he hops into the pool to make it his toilet. And what does that do? Just got Knight an MITB qualifier, and a pin on Logan right here on this mat! Now that felt damn good, and Knight wants to do it again. But Logan isn’t giving Knight what he wants, and what he wants is a shot at the US title. Knight chases Logan all over the world just to get him to show up! Logan says just listen to yourself, “John,” you sound pathetic! You’re a grown man but look at yourself!

The fact is, Knight needs this match with Logan. Logan doesn’t! The fans boo and Logan says they are not the same. The difference here is Knight’s entire existence is defined by what he does in this ring. Not Logan. Logan can leave this ring to interview former presidents, building multi-billion dollar business, starting a family, and changing the landscape of sports media with his brother! The last name “Paul” echoes through the entire zeitgeist of culture! And that’s not to say that what Knight does isn’t important. It is important. Knight is very good. In fact, Logan likes the catchphrase bodybuilder shtick he’s got.

But the real problem is, Knight wants Logan’s accolades but is not Logan. Knight doesn’t think like him, doesn’t move like him. Knight wants to be champion but is not “him.” And for someone whose entire existence is defined by what they do in this ring, Knight has not had a single defining moment the past 20 years. Knight is a gym bro with a spray tan and catchphrase, pretending to be The Rock! Knight says oh~, cut him, he bleeds! Never heard that before. Leave it to Logan to recycle old material. Low rent, lowbrow, Low T! Low T Logan P! But talk about the US Championship, about frauds, let’s talk about that.

Here is a man parading around as a champion! Here’s a man playing fraud on this entire company, pretending to be US Champion! And meanwhile, Logan won’t sign a contract? Good thing Logan brought up his brother, because the brother is willing to jump into the ring with Mike Tyson. But Logan doesn’t seem to have balls just to step into the ring with Knight! Guess balls don’t run in the family. Logan says if Knight wants the match, fine! He’ll sign, and he’ll give Knight a shot at the title! And after he beats Knight, Knight will have nothing. Logan could say he’d take everything from Knight, but Knight has nothing of value to give!

In fact, how about this? Logan can give Knight something already. On the back of this contract, Logan’s gonna give Knight directions for where he can still his dreams of becoming a champion! YEAH~! The fans boo but then Logan shoves the contract at Knight. Aldis keeps these two from throwing down already, even though the fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Logan stands down, the fans boo, but Knight still has the match he wants. But then Logan slides back in to attack! Logan RAMS Knight into a corner, but Knight turns things around to fire off haymakers! Logan knees low, fires body shots, then winds up, but Knight blocks!

Knight cravats but Logan slips away again! Both men say that’s how close the other came! But again, Knight has the shot he wanted, will he use it to shut Logan up once and for all?


LA Knight returns backstage.

And he’s confronted by Santos Escobar & Elektra Lopez, who say, “L! A! KNIGHT!” “EW!” Santos says congrats on finally getting that US Championship match. Must be a great feeling, right? Knight pinned Logan Paul in Madison Square Garden. That must feel like sitting on top of the world. What’s with the questions, where’s this going? Santos says relax. Just a friendly reminder that Santos was in the Triple Threat and didn’t get pinned. He knows, Knight knows, Lopez knows, everybody knows~, that if it was 1v1, it would’ve been a different story. Knight says Santos clearly isn’t a student of history, because Knight’s been part of that story and he knows how that went.

But hey, SummerSlam’s still a few weeks away, so Knight has some free time. If Santos wants to get in touch with Knight, his mom has Knight’s number. Santos says Knight sure feels untouchable, huh? Facing Santos so close to that title shot is not the brightest idea. Wouldn’t want him getting hurt. But if Knight wants to squander his opportunity, why stop him? Santos & Lopez head out, but will Knight humble him before going after Logan?


Mia Yim VS Tiffany Stratton w/ Nia Jax!

As if dealing with The Queen of the Ring wasn’t hard enough, Michin has the Princess all up in her business! Will Mia remind us why she’s The Head Baddie in Charge? Or will no one put an end to #TiffyTime?

SmackDown returns and Mia makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, and Tiff throws Mia down by her hair! The fans cheer but then Mia catches Tiff for a cradle, TWO! Mia SHOTGUNS Tiff to a corner, runs up to forearm SMASH, then she sits Tiff down. Mia mocks Tiff to then CANNONBALL! High stack cover, ONE!! Tiff toughs it out but Mia KICKS her! Tiff avoids a roundhouse and wants a Tiffy Timeout! Mia chases Tiff but Tiff hides behind Nia. Mia says Nia shouldn’t even be here, but Tiff sucker punches Mia! Then cartwheel and Alabama Lift, for an ALABAMA SLAM to the floor!

Nia pats Tiff on the shoulder and Tiff asks what time it is, but SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Tiff has a headlock. Fans rally as Mia fights out. Mia runs but Tiff knees her low! Tiff throws Mia down, then goes to the apron, SLINGSHOT SENTON! Cover, TWO! Mia stays in this but Nia coaches Tiff. Mia goes to a corner, Tiff runs and handsprings in to back elbow! Tiff then reels Mia in, SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Tiff grows frustrated but Nia says she’s got this. Tiff waits on Mia to get up, then she runs to cartwheel and Alabama Lift again! But Mia fights to sunset flip it, TWO! Mia stands up, slips under Tiff’s lariat and backslides, TWO! Tiff stands up, but Mia ELBOWS her!

Mia runs up to LARIAT! And then YAKUZA KICK! And then DROPKICK! Tiff flounders back up, into a NECKBREAKER! Tiff staggers to a corner, Mia runs up to CHOP! Mia reels Tiff in, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Tiff toughs it out and Mia grows frustrated. Mia drags Tiff up to wrench and EAT DA- NO, Tiff ROCKS Mia first! Mia ROCKS Tiff back! Mia runs up but Tiff YANKS her to ropes! Tiff runs to HIP ATTACK! Tiff keeps moving, TIFFY STOMPS! Cover, TWO! Mia survives and now Tiff is growing frustrated! Tiff drags Mia up, brings her over to a corner, and hauls her up top.

Tiff climbs but Mia fires hands! Tiff staggers back, Mia adjusts and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Tiff tumbles out of teh ring while fans fire up! Mia fires herself up and builds speed, but Nia trips her up! The fans boo while the ref misses that! Mia kicks at Nia, goes back for Tiff, but Tiff ROCKS her first! Tiff then reels Mia in for a ROLLING SENTON! Then PRETTIEST MOONSAULT- WAIT! Bayley is here!? Bayley distracts Tiff and pisses off Nia! Nia runs in but Bayley TOSSES her over barriers! Tiff freaks out as Bayley has the briefcase! She SMASHES Nia with it! Bayley then smacks the case against the desk!

The fans fire up as Bayley hits the case off steel steps! She opens it up, dumps the contract out, and STMOPS the briefcase into pieces!! Mia rolls Tiff, MIA WINS!!

Winner: Mia Yim, by pinfall

The Role Model helps the HBIC get some payback on Nia and Miss MITB! Then Bayley mockingly says, “Oops.” Bayley puts the contract in what’s left of the case and slide it to Tiff. Will Tiff have to give that briefcase a makeover before she can properly cash it in?


The Bloodline speaks.

Solo Sikoa says, “Life is so good when you’re The Tribal Chief on the Island of Relevancy. So good. And it’s also busy. I never have a moment to myself. But when I do, you know what I love the most? A good mystery. Yeah. I’m not talking about a mystery of who’s gonna be Cody Rhodes’ tag team partner. No, I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about a mystery of who’s gonna step up and disrespect The Tribal Chief by teaming up with Cody Rhodes tonight. That’s who I’m talking about. Have you seen what we done to Randy Orton last week? Have you? So if you’re on Cody’s side, that means you’re against me.

“If you’re against my family, you’re against my Bloodline, and you’re against The Tribal Chief. So tonight, tonight… tonight better be a Handicap match, or someone will pay the price. Because I am The Tribal Chief, and you will… acknowledge me!” Jacob Fatu adorns Solo with the ula fala, and they raise up the ones. Will anyone be brave enough to defy The Bloodline to help The American Nightmare?


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s SmackDown!

With #DIY still WWE Tag Team Champions after last week, it is time to find NEW #1 Contenders! It will be a Tag Team Gauntlet match, with The Street Profits, Legado Del Fantasma, Pretty Deadly, The Good Brothers, the new duo of Apollo Crews & Baron Corbin, and even The Bloodline’s Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa, all fighting for that shot! Who wins out to then head for Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano?


Cody Rhodes & ??? VS A-Town Down Under!

The American Nightmare wanted a response from The Bloodline but got a response from the former WWE Tag Team Champions.

Will Austin Theory & Grayson Waller tear down the Undisputed WWE Champion? Or will he have back-up after all?

Fatu adorns Solo with the ula fala, and the Bloodline raises their ones to the sky.

Cody sputters but he can’t sit up. Can Cody recover and be ready for SummerSlam? Or is Solo just two weeks away from taking over the WWE?

My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown here to not just build SummerSlam but to follow up last week. Great opening promo from Cody to call out The Bloodline, and I suppose A-Town Down Under calling him out in return was a logical move. Good promo from Solo, and it did foreshadow who would be Cody’s partner in a way. Kevin was of course coming back not just to help Cody but to avenge Randy, and we got a great tag main event for it. Great win for Cody & Kevin, but of course we got another brutal beating from The Bloodline. They’re doing their best to take away all of Cody’s allies, but I have a feeling this only motivates Kevin & Randy being there at SummerSlam to help. And they can even have a moment where, when it seems Cody is about to lose, Heyman returns with Roman to scare Solo.

Melo had a good promo tonight, and he had a great match with Andrade, but I figured Melo was losing. I don’t know how WWE Speed has been going but I don’t think Melo is going to be facing Andrade for the Speed title. I’m still wondering if Andrade circles back to Legado Del Fantasma. That tag team gauntlet is going to be a lot of fun but I would think Tama & Loa win so that The Bloodline gets back in that title story. Speaking of, we naturally got more interaction of Bianca & Jade with Chelsea & Piper. Bianca beating Chelsea so quickly practically makes a case for a Women’s Speed Championship. But at the same time, good promo from Alba & Isla to set up the continued story with Bianca & Jade, even while Raw is heating up with a lot of top level teams.

Very good promo segment from Bayley and Nia, though I did not think Bayley would work-shoot Nia’s early days of being green and “unsafe.” Each of them getting involved in Mia VS Tiff was good stuff, too, as was the destruction of Tiff’s briefcase. That’s also a very clever way to give Tiff a reason to customize the case into something that fits her vibe, aka it’ll be pink and sparkly cuz she’s the Wrestling Barbie. And while Naomi is busy with Blair Davenport in a feud on the side, Mia makes for a good teammate for Bayley to stand up to Nia & Tiff.

And we got a very good, non-traditional contract signing segment. Logan again played his part perfectly, being so arrogant that A) nothing, not even Knight pinning him, earns Knight a title shot and B) rubbing in that he doesn’t even need pro-wrestling, he just does this to show off. Knight took the long way to tell Logan that he should take the match to prove he’s not a coward, which is the same reason I was thinking the whole time. And like any quality arrogant Heel, Logan gets goaded into the match. Knight will definitely make an example of Santos next week, but I feel like the title match itself could go either way. If it were me, I’d have Knight win because he really has been waiting a long time for something, and this feels like the right time.

My Score: 8.8/10
