Jey Uso walks through the concourse!

The fans back there are all fired up, and they “YEET! YEET! YEET!” as Main Event Jey says hit his music. TD Garden erupts as Jey makes his way down through the crowd! Jey and Michael Cole low five a couple times, Corey Graves only gets one, then Jey gets a mic. The fans are all fired up and they “YEET! YEET! YEET!” Jey welcomes us to Mon-JEY Night Raw! “YEET!” Jey says Money in the Bank is Saturday. “YEET!” Only one person gonna snatch that contract! “YEET!” Not Carmelo. “YEET!” Not Andrade. “YEET!” Not LA Knight. “YEET!” Not Chad Gable. You are looking at Mr. Mon-YEET in the Bank, and his name is Jey Uso!

But speaking of Chad, here he comes! Gable has a mic of his own to say, “Enough! Enough of that word, I don’t even wanna repeat it.” The fans boo but Gable says, “Really? Well, for your information, you Boston idiots, yeet isn’t even a word! You know what is a word? Miracle! Look it up in the dictionary, you’ll find a picture of Chad Gable right next to it. Because what I’ve done the past two weeks is nothing short of miraculous. I overcame an attack from The Wyatts, I overcame my family leaving me…” The fans chant “YOU SUCK!” at Gable but he says he overcome two more monsters to punch his ticket to MITB.

So on Saturday, get ready to feast your eyes on another miracle, because Gable is gonna climb that ladder, win the contract, and become Master in the Bank! Gable steps into the ring with Jey and Jey asks what Gable’s doing out here. Didn’t the Wyatts get him already? “Get” him? Do they think he’s scared? He’s not scared! Jey should be scared! He stole the fireflies! Come to think of it, Gable is innocent. He was left high and dry by his family. The Wyatts should be after Jey, the man who abandoned his family! Jey says he told Uncle Howdy, he could take the fireflies. He can take the mosquitos, the roaches, all that.

Jey doesn’t want smoke with the Wyatts. But if we’re talking family, the Academy just did what Jey did: get out from under a manipulative scumbag like Gable! Gable fires off on Jey! The fans boo but Gable snarls as he stands Jey up. Gable whips, Jey reverses, ROCKS Gable, then ROCKS him again and again! “YEET! YEET!” Pop, lock ‘n’ put some stank on the HAYMAKER! Then a SUPERKICK! Gable is down, Jey goes up! But Gable scrambles away to the outside! The fans boo but Gable says Jey is so stupid! He’s not gonna just sit still and get hit! Wait. The lights start going out!! Gable, Jey and the TD Garden all panic as the piano plays!

Gable looks around, the spotlight starts shining on him as the fog gathers. The fans are losing their minds again, but Gable gets far away from the ring. He even goes through the crowd! The spotlight follows him, though, and then the eerie light shines from behind the stage! Gable gulps and goes back around to where the ladders are, but then another shadow is there! Gable keeps moving until he’s on stage right, only for a third shadow to be there! Gable runs up into the stands to get away! The Wyatts are continuing to haunt Gable, but then Sister Abigail drops off another mysterious package… Will there be another VHS tape inside?


Xavier Woods w/ Kofi Kingston VS Karrion Kross w/ The Final Testament!

The New Day got played like a bad video game last week, because The Final Testament made sure each man was isolated. Doomsday struck Kofi in the ring, The Authors of Pain struck Woods backstage, but now Woods looks for payback! Will the Power of Positivity prevail? Or will time run out on The New Day once and for all?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Kross wants a handshake? Woods says nope! He CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Woods whips, Kross reverses then runs in to clothesline! Kross then ELBOWS and ROCKS Woods! Kross snarls, reels Woods in and hits an EXPLODER! Kross offers the handshake, but Woods refuses, so Kross stomps him down. Woods fires body shots but Kross CLUBS him! Kross CHOKES Woods while mocking Kofi, but the ref counts. Kross lets off at 4, Kofi coaches Woods, but Kross storms up. Woods shoves Kross, DUMPS him out, then aims to PLANCHA! Down goes Kross and the fans fire up!

Woods gets Kross up to CHOP, CHOP and CHOP! Kross snarls, Woods whips, but Kross reverses! Woods stops from hitting post, then dodges. Kross avoids the post, blocks a kick, and he reels Woods in, to POST BOMB him!! Woods falls hard on the floor, Kross mockingly asks if he wants to shake hands now, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Kross has Woods down with a chinlock. The fans rally and Woods fights up. Woods moves around, throws body shots, but Kross ROCKS him! Woods ROCKS Kross! Kross ROCKS Woods, Woods CHOPS Kross! Kross CHOPS, Woods CHOPS, repeat! Woods CHOPS and CHOPS then fires off more CHOPS! The fans fire up and Woods whips but Kross reverses. Woods ducks ‘n’ dodges and slides, to then ROLLING ELBOW! The fans fire up, Woods runs corner to corner, and he forearm SMASHES! Woods goes up to rain down fists! The fans count along, but Kross stops Woods at 5. Woods dodges back to SUPERKICK!

Woods reels Kross in, but Kross wrenches out to HEADBUTT! Woods falls and fans boo but Kross soaks it all up. Kross drags Woods up on the apron, but Woods GAMANGIRIS! Kross falls, Woods goes up, but Ellering shouts at Woods! Woods tightrope walks, leaps, but into a FOREARM! Kross soaks up the heat while telling Woods he could’ve just joined them. Kross drags Woods up, the fans rally with “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” and Woods cradles! WOODS WINS!!

Winner: Xavier Woods, by pinfall

Kross got lost in the #Backwoods and The New Day is all fired up! But then AOP attacks! The fans boo but the sore losers TOSS Woods out, and Rezar drags Kofi up with both hands! Kofi lands out of the slam, Rezar runs up, but Kofi DUMPS him out! Kofi builds speed, into a KROSSHAMMER!! The fans boo but then AOP DOUBLE POWERBOMB Woods against barriers! Then Kross clamps onto Kofi’s arm with a top wristlock, and he just pulls! Kofi suffers at the Hands of Time, until Scarlett says that’s enough. The fans boo as The Final Testament stands tall. Woods drags himself into the ring to check on Kofi, but is this truly the end of The New Day?


Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio walk the halls.

El Campeon says yes, tonight is a big night thanks to Liv Morgan. Hopefully, Dom will be done with his dad once and for all. Now, before they go into the clubhouse, did Dom talk with Rhea? Dom says yeah, and she’s good, he’s good, it’s all good. Is Damian good? Yeah, he’s great. But y’know who’s not? Rhea, because Damian talked with her. She is PISSED, dude! Oh… Dom says he’ll handle this. Damian says Dom’s been saying that every week, and yet he does nothing. Just once, do what you say you’re gonna do. Dom says this isn’t even his fault. Dom grumbles but Damian asks what he said. Dom says nothing, no big deal.

Dom and Damian then step inside, and surprise! Liv is already here, watching the guys play some more WWE 2K. Liv welcomes the guys and says she was just leaving. After all, her match is next. And good luck tonight, Daddy Dom~. Liv leaves, Carlito says he was playing as Damian. Damian doesn’t care. Dom has Carlito go back to the game and Finn talks with Damian. Damian says Liv hanging out here is not cool. That’s gotta stop. Okay, sure. But Liv did help bring the tag titles back to The Judgment Day. The real issue here is Damian. What?! Finn says Damian put his spot with The Judgment Day in jeopardy!

And let’s not even get started on what Damian said to Seth Rollins last week. What was it again? The Judgment Day needs Damian more than he needs them? Like they’re just his sidekicks or something? No, they’re not his sidekicks. But Damian didn’t say anything that was wrong, either. Damian is world champion. Of course Judgment Day needs him more! It was the same as when Rhea was world champ, Judgment Day needed her. Now Finn is tag champ again, so how about this? They all need each other. And as far as Damian’s spot being on the line, he has faith in himself, he’s gonna beat Rollins. He knows he can, that’s what he’s gonna do.

Finn knows Damian will, and ash is brother, he’ll have Damian’s back. But he’ll also tell Damian the truth. Ever since winning the world title, Damian’s changed. Damian scoffs at that as Finn storms off, but does The Prince have a point about The Punisher getting a big head?


WWE mourns the loss of Leati “Sika” Anoa’i.

“Prestigious. Ferocious. Influential. Iconic.” There are countless ways to describe the Anoa’i Family, it is clear they stand as one of the most powerful dynasties in pro-wrestling. WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of the great Sika, a patriarch of this legendary bloodline, “who established a legacy of dominance with one of the most imposing tag teams of all time,” The Wild Samoans. Sika was born and raised in Samoa then moved to San Francisco. Trained by his brother, Afa, the two would then become one of the most world renowned tag teams. Even legends like Hulk Hogan had to admit they had intimidating presences.

In their 30 YEAR career, The Wild Samoans would hold 21 total tag team championships, becoming one of the most acclaimed teams of all time, and were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2007. Mick Foley says those two were pillars of the Samoan Dynasty that leads to today. Sika instilled a relentless work ethic into the rest of the family, especially his own son, Joe Anoa’i, aka Roman Reigns. Roman is much like his father, a strong presence but a gentle soul, and has truly made his father proud.

The Anoa’i Family has created so many great Samoan superstars, and Sika will be remembered as a caring brother, loving father, and proud grandfather. Sika’s influence has ensured that the Anoa’i Family name will never be forgotten.


WWE Women’s World Championship: Liv Morgan VS Zelina Vega!

The Liv Morgan Revenge Tour isn’t done, but it has sure done wonders for Liv already. She helped Judgment Day get more gold, she’s all but has Dom wrapped around her finger, and most importantly, she has this title. At least, for now. Will La Muneca humble Liv and finally have some gold of her own? Or will the tour keep on rolling through the Summer?

Cathy Kelley is with Zelina backstage at gorilla, and brings up how Dom offered Zelina help in taking this title. Has she considered his offer? And how is she going to stay focused on Liv given all the chaos Liv’s caused? Zelina says like she told “Bootleg Rhea” last week, she’s not interested in chasing Dirty D. Now, she is interested in chasing that WWE Women’s World Championship. Zelina IS a champion, so Liv, and everyone who has ever doubted her, will see what a real champion looks like. Zelina makes her entrance, will she make good on that promise?

Raw returns and Liv makes her entrance, showing off the new shirt, “Liv’s Finally On Top.” The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly on top of the Raw Women’s Division!

The bell rings and the two rush in! Liv throws Zelina down then laughs at her. Zelina sits up, Liv grabs at her but Zelina arm-drags! Zelina tries another but Liv blocks. So Zelina just goes the other way to arm-drag after all! Liv gets up, Zelina runs up, springboard and wheelbarrow to arm-drag again! Liv runs back up but Zelina KICKS a leg! Zelina whips but Liv reverses, and Zelina hits buckles hard! Liv grins as she storms up on Zelina and puts her through the ropes. Liv hops on for a SLEEPER! The ref counts, Liv lets off, but Zelina BOOTS her! Zelina goes up but Liv ROCKS her first! Liv and Zelina brawl, but then Zelina slips down!

Zelina YANKS Liv’s head into buckles, then 619s the legs out! Liv staggers awya, but she hurries after Zelina. Liv HOTSHOTS Zelina, then SHOTGUNS her down! The fans boo, because here comes Dom! Liv thinks he’s here for her, but that might not be the case. Liv goes out, and Zelina gets her for a TORNADO ARM-DRAG! Then a METEORA to the floor! The fans fire up with Zelina, and Dom applauds, but then here comes REY! The fans fire up and Dom is wary of his dad while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Zelina fights up from a chinlock, but Liv knees her low! Liv waves at Dom, reels Zelina in, and snap suplexes! Then she spins through, Una Amiga! And then Dos Amigas! Dom and Rey are both upset by this, but Liv hits THREE AMIGAS! Liv gives us some Latina Heat! Then she stands over Zelina, ties up the legs, and now she’s taunting Rhea with the PRISM TRAP! Zelina endures and fights around but Liv keeps her from ropes! Liv digs her heel into Zelina’s back, but Zelina still fights! Zelina powers her way forward, but Liv drags her back! Zelina rolls and she sends Liv into buckles! Then she rolls Liv, SCHOOLGIRL KICK!

The fans fire up as Zelina bumps Liv off buckles! And again, and again! And then JUMP KICK! Zelina pushes Liv down, AX KICKS her, then lifts her with a foot. Zelina BOOTS Liv down, stomps her around, then puts her in the drop zone. Zelina goes up, up and MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Liv survives and shocks Zelina! Rey coaches Zelina, she’s so close! Zelina watches as Liv slowly rises up. Zelina BOOTS Liv again, reels her in, CODE- CRUNCHY!! Liv sits on the cover, but Zelina manages to sunset flip! TWO, and Liv ENZIGIRIS! Cover, TWO!! Zelina survives but Liv has a crazy smile on her face…

Liv blows a kiss to Dom and Dom tries not to smile. Liv pushes Zelina around, puts her in a corner, then hoists her up top. Liv climbs, the fans taunt Dom, “SHAVE YOUR MUSTACHE!” Liv and Zeilna brawl up top! Zelina fires hands, CLUBS Liv again and again and again and again! Liv wobbles, Zelina SMACKS her off buckles! Zelina rises up and hops on again, SUPER CODE RED!! But Liv flounders and flops all the way out of the ring! The fans boo and Zelina is beside herself! Zelina hurries out after Liv, gets her back up, but Liv RAMS her into the apron! Liv storms up on Zelina, pushes her into the ring, then hurries in.

Dom and Rey both coach Zelina but they argue with each other. Rey SHOVES Dom! The fans fire up but Liv WRECKS Rey with a dropkick! Zelina hits 619!! And then tilt-o-whirl, TORNADO DDT!! Cover, TWO?!?! Liv survives! Zelina wants another cover, TWO!! Dom slides in a chair, but Zelina says no thanks! She SMACKS Dom with the chair! But Liv is pissed! ObLIVion!! Cover, Liv wins!!

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s World Champion)

Dom can’t believe what just happened, even though it’s all his fault! At least, he did mean to help Zelina, not mess things up, right? Cathy Kelley interviews Liv to congratulate her, but also ask if she’s feeling like everything is going according to plan. Liv says she is the luckiest girl in the world! And her revenge tour is going exactly how she planned it. So she wants to dedicate her victory tonight, and all her future victories, to the most gorgeous man in WWE, Daddy Dominik! Liv kisses the belt, but will she ever kiss it goodbye?


Drew McIntyre speaks.

Wearing a #DMHunk shirt, he says, “I was screwed out of the World Heavyweight Championship by CM Punk, twice. And as a reward, I was sent right to the back of the line. The funny thing is, I’m at peace. And you wanna know why? Because I know if anybody gets between me and my goal from now on, I’ll do exactly to them what I did to Punk. And it starts tonight. Sheamus, and Dragunov. I’m gonna win. And then I’m gonna go to Money in the Bank this Saturday, and I do not care who is in the match. I know you’re full of hopes and dreams, guy, a lot of up-and-comers. You know who had hopes and dreams? Me.

“And they were ripped right out of my hands. And I’m gonna rip them outta your hands. And I’ll be justified. Because on Saturday, I’m gonna climb that ladder, retrieve the contract, and it is MY night. I will be World Heavyweight Champion. There’s not a thing anyone can do to stop me. Just ask the last guy who tried. Oh yeah! You can’t.” McIntyre shows off the bracelet he stole from Punk, but will he be holding onto something far more valuable in just a few days?


Seth Rollins heads to gorilla.

The Visionary is here, just days away from his own golden opportunity. He passes by Zoey Stark talking with Sonya Deville, and we see Shayna Baszler storm over there to stop that. Will Shayna get the Hunter to focus on her prey? Or will the Gladiator Gal finally get someone to listen to her ideas?


Seth Rollins heads to the ring!

TD Garden sings along with the song, “WHOA~ OHH~ OHHH~!” as The Visionary struts his way out. Rollins even climbs a ladder for the fun of it before he continues down the ramp. Rollins gets a mic, then revels in the singing before saying, “BOOOSTOOON~! Welcome to Monday… Night … Rollins!” Rollins says he is a Visionary, a Revolutionary, and he is Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! Green confetti flies in and Rollins points it out. It is a sign! A sign that next week, at this time, Rollins will be standing here, once again, WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! The fans like the sound of that!

Rollins wants to get real, though. He is sure Boston will understand. He has a secret for us. He hasn’t said this out loud before but he wants to share it with Boston because Boston is a championship city. The fans cheer as Rollins points out the Bruins, the Sox, the Pats, and judging by this leftover confetti, the 2024 NBA Champions, the Boston Celtics! The fans fire up for that, then they cheer on the Celtics. Rollins says it was well-deserved for an incredible season. Rollins says Boston understands this secret, this thing he was about to say. “I need to win back the World Heavyweight Champion.”

Rollins has to have it! He cannot settle for second best or anything less than a championship. If he doesn’t beat Damian Priest at MITB, then he doesn’t get another crack at Priest while he has the title. And then Rollins has to reevaluate, “Who IS Seth Freakin’ Rollins?” He has to reevaluate his legacy. But the thing about him, when the pressure is the highest, that is when Rollins is at his very best! So Saturday, MITB, when Rollins takes that title Priest has been keeping warm since WrestleMania, Rollins takes Priest from The Judgment Day. But what we need to understand, it is not Rollins’ intention to break up The Judgment Day.

But without The Judgment Day, Priest has the opportunity to be the best version- Wait, here comes Finn Balor! “Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to one half of your NEW World Tag Team Champions!” The fans boo but Finn says he should be in a good mood tonight. But he’s not. He’s in a bad mood. In fact, he’s in a real bad mood. Wanna know why? Because everything around Raw seems to be changing. What it means to be in The Judgment Day is changing. Damian Priest is changing. And Rollins is to blame! Rollins says shut up! Priest is his own man! He’s making his own decisions. Rollins doesn’t put words in Priest’s mouth.

And Rollins doesn’t even think Finn is actually mad. No, Finn is jealous that Priest has the one thing Finn couldn’t get, and that’s the World Heavyweight Championship. But here’s the deal, Finn. Rollins’ beef ain’t with Finn, it’s with Priest. But if Finn wants to get in Seth’s ring, then he’ll knock Finn’s teeth down his throat! Wait, here comes Priest now! There’s the trap! They’re on the same page for one more week, so let’s go! Priest tells Rollins not to be paranoid, this isn’t a trap. Oh? It sure looks like it to Rollins! Finn’s ready to attack, too! Priest says this isn’t a trap, this is HIS business, and no one else gets involved in his business.

Finn and Priest stare down, but Priest tells Rollins he’s right. This is about Priest and Rollins, and just them. Rollins wants ot say Priest’s days as champ are numbered, but Priest says Rollins couldn’t be more wrong. The idea that Rollins still runs Raw, those days are numbered. Is that how Priest feels? Priest nods and Rollins says if that’s the case, then why wait until Saturday? Let’s just do this right here and now! Priest says yeah, let’s! But then Finn runs up! Rollins DECKS Finn, he and Priest hesitate, but then Finn CLOBBERS Rollins! The fans boo but Priest stops Finn! Finn is confused, but then Rollins runs up!

Rollins SUPERKICKS Priest into Finn, then he DECKS Finn! CURB STOMP for Finn! But Priest is back up! SOUTH OF HEAVEN CHOKE SLAM! Priest then makes sure Finn is alright. The Punisher & Prince get outta there with their belts, but will they both still be champion after MITB in Toronto? Or will Rollins force the issue of who truly needs who?


Ludwig Kaiser speaks.

“After weeks of continuous, hard fought battles, after proving what Ludwig Kaiser is capable of, after going toe to toe with Bron Breakker and being on the verge of beating him, here comes your fraud of a legend, Sheamus. To viciously attack me from behind, blindside me, purposefully trying to take me out, and ending up breaking my ribs. After so many years, Sheamus, so many accomplishments, so many people around the world looking up to you, you finally showed your true colors. You showed who you really are: You are nothing but a coward.

“Y’know Sheamus, before, it was about beating you. You were meant to be only one chapter in the story of The Rise of The Kaiser. But now…! Now, it’s more than that. Now, I will make it my only goal to come back not only to beat you but to embarrass you, to humiliate you, and to end The Celtic Warrior once and for all.” Then when and where will the Impeccable German return to go after The Fella?


Judgment Day regroups backstage.

Priest asks if Finn is okay and he says yeah. Priest is glad Finn is okay, but seriously, at MITB, the guys have to stay out of this. Priest has to do this on his own. Understood? Finn says yeah. Priest goes to get Finn ice, but if Finn (not) fine with that?


Women’s Money in the Bank Qualifier Triple Threat: Zoey Stark VS Dakota Kai VS Ivy Nile!

One final spot in the Women’s Ladder Match, one final chance to chase that career changing contract. Will The Hunter capture her prey? Will #CobraKai strike with no mercy? Or will the Diamond Pitbull sink her teeth into a golden ticket to Toronto?

Raw returns and Stark makes her entrance, followed by Ivy’s. The bell rings and Dakota DECKS Ivy! Zoey ROCKS Dakota, whips, but Dakota reverses. Zoey goes up and over to GAMANGIRI, but Ivy LARIATS Zoey! Cover, ONE!! Ivy runs at Dakota, Dakota dodges and trips Ivy up! Dakota spins Ivy on the apron to BOOT her! Dakota grins, but Zoey WRECKS Dakota with a dropkick! Zoey gets Dakota up and in, but Ivy DROPKICKS Zoey! Dakota ROCKS Ivy, brings her around, but Ivy shoves her. Ivy sees Zoey get up, so she KICK PUNCH COMBOS! The fans fire up as Ivy hits two targets at once!

Ivy whips Dakota to a corner, runs in, and DROPKICKS! Ivy keeps moving but Dakota follows Around the World to BOOT Ivy down! But then Zoey MISSILE DROPKICKS Dakota! Cover, TWO! Zoey glances up at the briefcase, the fans rally up, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Zoey has Ivy up top! But then Dakota joins in! They’re all up top, and Ivy turns things into a DOUBLE SUPER BULLDOG! All three women are down but Ivy rises and fires up! The fans rally, Ivy ELBOWS Dakota, runs Dakota over, then reels her in to whip. Ivy runs at the corner, DROPKICK! Then GERMAN SUPLEX! Zoey is up, Ivy dodges her to tilt-o-whirl and RANA! Then a GERMAN SUPLEX for Zoey! Ivy gets Dakota up, suplexes, and the fans fire up! But Zoey gets in there to bring Dakota down! Dakota waistlocks Zoey, Ivy waistlocks Dakota! DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover on Dakota, TWO!

The fans fire up as all three women are down! Ivy grits her teeth, rises up, and she fires forearms with Dakota! Zoey CHOPS Ivy! Dakota ROCKS Zoey! Zoey ROCKS Dakota! Ivy kicks, Zoey blocks, then ducks, the DRAGON WHIP gets Dakota! Zoey GERMAN SUPLEXES Ivy! Cover, Dakota breaks it! The fans rally while Dakota drags Zoey up. Zoey ROCKS Dakota, Dakota SCORPION KICKS in return! Zoey rebounds to roll Dakota, KNEE TRIGGER! Ivy ROUNDHOUSES Zoey, then GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!! Zoey escapes and the fans rally! Ivy aims from a corner, runs in, but Zoey SUPERKICKS!

Zoey stands Ivy in, springboards, TORNADO DDT! Dakota runs up, KAI-ROPRACTOR!! Cover, Ivy breaks it!! The fans fire up as all three women are down again! But wait! Kairi sane is here! She distracts Ivy, then gets away! Dakota whips Ivy out to the apron, then DOUBLE STOMPS her down! But then Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn CLOBBER Kairi! Dakota is distracted by that, leaves Ivy behind but Zoey SUPERKICKS Dakota! Then Z 360!! Cover, Zoey wins!

Winner: Zoey Stark, by pinfall (advances to MITB)

Damage CTRL tried to improve their chances but got got by the wicked witches! Now the Hunter is moving on to even bigger prey! Will she bring down the briefcase and become the new Miss MITB?


The VHS is ready…

This week’s tape starts up, and we’re back with Bo Dallas and Uncle Howdy in their mysterious space. “How much longer are we gonna keep doing this?” Howdy smirks, and Bo asks, “What’re we even doing here?” Howdy asks if Bo honestly believes this is what he should be doing with his life. Bo says he was destined for this life. Does Bo think he’s special? Special? That implies others are not special, that there are those who are less than. That there ware those who deserve to be forgotten. “We’re the ones that everyone wanted to forget about. We’re the ones that everybody abandoned. We made them notice us.”

Howdy says, “There you are.” Then how does Bo believe he can bring “them” to life? Bo says they weren’t chosen. Just willing. Clay in the hands of the potter. Died to the flesh to become something beautiful. They have become a family. “We’ve become a family.” Howdy smiles, and Bo says even now, there are false prophets, belittling their family for their own gain! It is disgusting…! “They must pay for their sins.” And Bo thinks this is his responsibility? Bo says he is the Voice of the Reckoning. Howdy IS the Reckoning. They both say, “I am nobody. I am all of this. I set you free. I fere them from the cave. I AM NOBODY! I gave them a family! I made them beautiful! I am all of them!

“I am the reckoning!” And then Howdy’s just gone… Bo says he set them free. Then Bo becomes Howdy. “There you are.” The tape ends, but just what has Bo brought to life?


Chad Gable finds Otis in catering.

Gable sits with Otis but Otis wants to leave. Gable asks he hold on. Did they see that new Wyatt video? It sounds like they’re talking about Gable. Gable doesn’t know who else to turn to. Gable knows he was critical of Otis and his… choices. Gable called him a disappointment, a failure, and a blubbering idiot, but look. Those were hurtful, and Otis surely hates Gable. Otis says he doesn’t hate Gable. But he is not helping Gable. This is not the Academy’s problem, it is Gable’s. Yes, that’s true, but they’re after Gable now. Who knows who is next. It could be Tozawa, Maxxine, and even Otis.

Gable just wants Otis to know, if that happens, Gable will be there. Gable will have their back. Otis is still Gable’s number one guy. Maxxine & Tozawa walk over, Maxxine asks if everything is okay. Gable says yeah, everything’s okay. Gable pats Otis on the shoulder then leaves. Maxxine & Tozawa put their hands on Otis’ shoulder now. Will The Academy be alright without Gable? Will Gable be alright without The Academy?


Rey Mysterio VS Dominik Mysterio!

We saw these two have it out earlier tonight, and we’ve seen them go back and forth for years now. Could this be the last time father and son fight it out? Or will this only escalate the family feud?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Dom wrenches and wristlocks but Rey rolls and handsprings. Rey wrenches, whips, but Dom reverses. Dom drops down then DROPKICKS Rey down! The fans boo but Dom soaks up the heat. Dom and Rey reset, circle, and tie up. Rey headlocks, Dom powers up and out, then drops down. Dom hurdles, but Rey stomps Dom’s dropdown! Rey dodges Dom’s lariat to tilt-o-whirl and RANA! Dom bails out, Rey goes to the apron, and he FLYING RANAS Dom into barriers! Dom writhes, but Rey dusts himself off and “kicks dirt” at Dirty Dom, while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Dom has Rey in a corner. The fans boo as Dom whips but Rey reverses. Rey runs up but Dom pops Rey onto the ropes! Rey sputters, Dom drags him down to a cover, TWO! Dom is annoyed with the ref but his count was fair. Dom stomps Rey around, rains down fists, and the fans boo as he shouts, “I run this b*tch!” Dom goes back to Rey, drags him up and whips him to ropes. Dom UPPERCUTS Rey down, then covers, TWO! The fans rally for Rey but Dom stalks Rey. Dom slaps Rey around, talks trash, then stomps Rey in the corner. Dom digs his boots in, the ref counts, and Dom lets off.

The fans chant “SHAVE YOUR MUSTACHE!” like they did earlier, but Dom ignores them. Dom CHOPS Rey, whips him corner to corner hard, and Rey falls back! Dom taunts Rey, stands on his neck, but then has a cocky cover. ONE, and Dom argues with the ref. Dom stalks Rey to ropes, brings him around and whips him to another corner. Rey ELBOWS back! Dom comes back, Rey drop toeholds Dom into buckles! Rey drags Dom up by his mullet to dribble him off the buckle! The fans count along, Rey goes all the way to TEN! Dom staggers around, Rey goes up the corner! FLYING SEATED SENTON!

Rey keeps moving, he springboards to CROSSBODY! A hard hit and even Rey is a bit winded. Rey gets Dom up, whips, but Dom sunset flips! Rey rolls through to BUZZSAW! Rey says time to go up and the fans cheer again. But here comes Liv! She won’t let Rey hurt “her daddy,” but Rey says go away. Rey RAMS into Dom, slingshots and sunset flips, but Dom rolls through to CATAPULT, and BOSTON CRAB! Dom makes Rey suffer, but Rey fights his way forward! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Dom lets go, and Dom asks why Liv is here. Liv cheers Dom on and he goes back to Rey. Dom reels Rey in, to suplex!

Dom turns over, that’s Uno Amigo! The fans boo but Dom hits Dos Amigos! Dom gets Rey up again, for THREE- NO, Rey kicks free! Then he dropkicks Dom onto ropes! The fans fi reup, Rey dials up, but Liv drags Dom to safety! The fans boo and even Dom asks what she’s doing. But then Rey DROPKICKS Dom into Liv! They fall over on each other, and Liv is all smiles. Dom wants to get away but Liv holds him down! Rey drags Dom up by his mullet! Rey puts Dom in, Liv asks what he has against their love! Rey gets in the ring, Dom SUPERKICKS him! Dom reels Rey in, BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up as Rey survives, and here comes Zelina! THESZ PRESS and fast hands on Liv! Liv and Zelina scrap, Zelina RAMS Liv into barriers! Dom DROPKICKS Rey onto ropes! Dom dials it up, 619!! Dom goes up a corner, but Zelina is there! Liv SHOVES Zelina down! But Zelina YANKS Liv down! That trips Dom up and he lands on his Dirty D! Rey runs in to 619 Dom while he’s upside-down! Dom flops down, Rey DROPS THE DIME! Cover, Rey wins!!

Winner: Rey Mysterio, by pinfall

In quite the bit of karma, Liv meant to help Dom and she cost him! Liv promises she can fix this but Dom doesn’t wanna hear it. What will Liv do to make it up to Dom?


Sheamus speaks.

“Last night was officially 15 years since the impossible dream was achieved by a pale skinned, redheaded, chubby kid from North Dublin. I got to step inside a WWE ring. I go to fulfill my dream and prove every single one of my doubters wrong. I got to step in there with legends, travel the world, and actually make a living beating people up. And tonight, I get a shot at another dream, by potentially becoming a two-time Mr. Money in the Bank. When I step in there with Ilja Dragunov and Drew McIntyre, two of the hardest hitting superstars in the WWE, make no mistake about it. This is going to be a war.

“Let’s talk about Ilja, too. A hungry young superstar from Russia, that reminds me of Sheamus 15 years ago, who’s tearing the place up. And Drew McIntyre, my so-called best mate who I know like the back of my hand, who’s constantly sticking his nose in my business. Friends like him, who needs enemies, yeah? Well, 15 years. Still as hungry as ever, and still putting on banger after banger! But tonight, I take one step closer to becoming World Heavyweight Champion for a fifth time when I qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match.” Sheamus gives a wink, but will the Luck of the Irish help him through the Russian and the Scotsman in his way?


Sami Zayn is here!

The fans fire up as the WWE Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring. He knows his match with Bron Breakker for that title is coming, what will he have to say about it? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Sami gets a mic. But instead of being in the ring, he is on the steel steps as he hears the fans chant his name. Sami says he feels pretty good here in Boston. It feels good to walk back into this arena as THE Intercontinental Champion! Sami now steps into the ring and says when he won this title, he said he wanted to defend it against anyone, anytime. And we know the next challenge is set: MITB, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Sami Zayn VS Bron Breakker. Sami isn’t stupid. He hears the buzz and the chatter. It seems like a lot of people think Bron is going to run right through Sami.

And Sami gets it! He gets why people think that. Bron is an athletic freak, strong as hell, fast as hell, and is breaking guys in half every other week! So Sami will say this as plainly as he can just to make sure he is not misunderstood: Sami is going to beat Bron Breakker at MITB! The fans cheer, and Sami says he takes nothing away from Bron Breakker. But then here comes Bron Breakker! Bron gets himself a mic then steps into the ring with Sami. The fans bark and Bron tells Sami, “You gained a little bit of my respect last week, because everyone else back there is afraid of me. They see me coming in the hallway, they turn around, they go the other direction.

“But not you. You actually came to find me, and challenged me to a fight! You gave me an opportunity at the Intercontinental Championship. Which tells me two things. One: you got guts. Two: you have no idea what you’re in for.” The fans bark again, and Bron says this Saturday, all the respect goes out the window. Because in this ring, Bron will beat Sami down, decimate him, and become the NEW Intercontinental Champion! Sami says, “Do you know how many guys have said that they’re gonna beat me down? That they’re gonna break me in half? Do you know how many times, how many guys have done that?”

Sami’s been beaten and broken a thousand times, and a thousand times, Sami puts himself back together. That is the difference between him and these other guys Bron runs through. Sami gets back every single time, and if you don’t believe him, the proof is right here! Bron wants this? Good! Sami wants Bron to want this! To try his very best to take this from him! But if Sami really has to stand in this ring and tell Bron who Sami is, that tells Sami that Bron hasn’t done his homework. Maybe Bron isn’t as smart as he thinks he is. And maybe, just maybe, Bron isn’t as good as he thinks he is. Sami will see you at MITB.

The fans cheer, Bron nods and backs away, to then run up and SPEAR!! The fans are torn between booing and barking, and Bron stands over Sami. Will Bron do that all over again when the title is on the line? Or will this just be the 1001st time Sami puts himself back together to come out on top? Wait, Bron sees Sami get out of the ring. And he runs in around the way! But then Sami hurdles over Bron, and Bron rams himself into steel steps!! The fans are thunderous and losing their minds as Bron stands up again. Sami fires off on Bron, SMACKS him off the desk, then rains down fists! Bron gets loose, gets back in the ring, then runs up! But into a CORNER EXPLODER!

The fans fire up as Sami now takes aim from a corner! Sami runs in at Bron, but into a SPEAR!! Bron rips his shirt off and throws it away! Even after Sami retaliated, he still got devastated! Bron picks up the belt to hold it over Sami, will this be what we see on Saturday?


Backstage interview with Damage CTRL.

Cathy Kelley points out that Dakota could not secure her spot in the MITB ladder match, does this impact Iyo Sky’s preparations at all? Dakota says no, not at all. The plan stays the same. Iyo wills till win the MITB briefcase, and Dakota is so sick and tired of people getting involved in DMG CTRL business! Alba, Isla, and speak of the devil, it’s Lyra. The Morrigan says they’re so confident when it’s all three together. But they can’t climb the ladder for Iyo. Lyra will just get up there faster and take the contract. Dakota says no, because Lyra won’t even make it to MITB! But then Katana & Kayden attack! The six women brawl, but producers and refs rush in!

Adam Pearce shouts for everyone to stop, but clearly there are rising tensions in the Raw Women’s Division! What will it take to settle the score Lyra & KC Squared have with DMG CTRL?


Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“The Money in the Bank contract can take you from the dirty grounds straight to the top of the mountain. And I know everything about fighting from the bottom. To grit my teeth, endure it and suffer on my way to the top. So now it’s my time to breathe the air of a new level. Because a career can be short, especially when animals like Bron Breakker are trying to end you. But this revenge is a story of a different day. Because tonight, I will fight you, Drew. I will fight you, Sheamus. And I will win, go to Toronto on Saturday, and win the MITB ladder match, or… Die trying.”


Men’s Money in the Bank Qualifier Triple Threat: Drew McIntyre VS Sheamus VS Ilja Dragunov!

We’ve heard from the Scottish Terminator, the Celtic Warrior and the Mad Dragon of Russia, but only one man’s brand of brutality can win out! Who stands tall to capture that final spot in the Men’s MITB Ladder Match?

Raw returns and Dragunov makes his entrance, followed by Sheamus. Sheamus and McIntyre stare down, the bell rings, and the fans rally up. McIntyre and Sheamus talk some trash, but Dragunov storms up. McIntyre just pushes him away! Dragunov gets mad, storms back up, but McIntyre shoves him away again! Sheamus and McIntyre still argue, but then Dragunov JUMP KICKS McIntyre down! Dragunov tells McIntyre not to disrespect him! Sheamus and Dragunov lock eyes now and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Dragunov waistlocks, only for Sheamus to throw him away.

The two tie up again, Sheamus shoves Dragunov but Dragunov BOOST Sheamus! Sheamus rebounds to LARIAT! Sheamus scoops Dragunov, but Dragunov slips free to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Sheamus CHOPS, shoves Dragunov, but Dragunov BOOTS Sheamus! Dragunov CHOPS Sheamus in the corner, CHOPS again, then MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Dragunov BOOTS Sheamus down, digs his boot in then scrapes Sheamus’ face! And he scrapes Sheamus again! Dragunov goes side to side, but runs into an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! McIntyre runs up, but also into an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER!

Sheamus BLASTS Dragunov off the apron, goes out after him, and brings him up. Sheamus UPPERCUTS Dragunov, but McIntyre CLOBBERS Sheamus! McIntyre TOSSES Sheamus into the front row! Dragunov CHOPS McIntyre! McIntyre scoops Dragunov, Dragunov slips free and POSTS McIntyre! Then Dragunov BOOTS McIntyre! Sheamus rises up behind McIntyre at the barriers! Sheamus clamps onto McIntyre for BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! The fans count along as Sheamus goes all the way to TEN, then keeps going! THIRTEEN and Sheamus lets off to fire up with his Boston Celtics fans, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once again and McIntyre has Sheamus. Sheamus fight sup to fire hands, then runs, but McIntyre CLOBBERS him! Dragunov is back and he ENZIGIRIS McIntyre! Dragunov fires boxing elbows but McIntyer RAMS Dragunov to a corner, to then OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! The fans rally up, McIntyre storms up on Dragunov for another OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! McIntyre runs at Sheamus but Sheamus BOOTS him down! Sheamus then skins the cat to the top rope and fans fire up! Sheamus aims to FLYING LARIAT McIntyre down! All three men are down and the fans fire up more!

Sheamus and McIntyre rise up at center, Dragunov’s off to the side. Sheamus and McIntyre fire shots, LARIATS, and repeat! Dragunov CHOPS McIntyre, CHOPS Sheamus, repeat! McIntyre DECKS Dragunov but he springs up to PELE! Sheamus swings, misses, and Dragunov PELES again! Dragunov runs to KNEE Sheamus down! The fans fire up as Dragunov goes to a corner and climbs up.

Dragunov goes corner to corner, RUNNING H-BOMB FOREARM!! Cover, TWO?!?!

McIntyre survives and Dragunov is beside himself! Dragunov fires up but Sheamus drags him out! Sheamus then whips Dragunov into barriers! The Fella sees McIntyre all alone now, but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more, and McIntyre has Sheamus up top. But then Dragunov adds on! The fans fire up for the SUPER GERMAN SUPERPLEX COMBO!! All three men are down and the fans lose their minds! Dragunov covers McIntyre, TWO! Cover on Sheamus, TWO!! Dragunov is beside himself but the fans say “This is Awesome!” Dragunov goes after Sheamus but Sheamus elbows free. Sheamus whips, but Dragunov hits the CONSTANTINE SPECIAL! Dragunov then rolls his way to a corner and aims at McIntyre! “UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!” But the GLASGOW KISS hits first!! McIntyre aims now, “Three! Two! One!”

Dragunov survives and Sheamus can’t believe it! TD Garden fires up with Sheamus as he resets in a corner! Sheamus beats his chest, the fans fire up, BROGUE!!! Cover, McIntyre drags Dragunov outta there! Just to TOSS him over the barriers! Sheamus and McIntyre stare down, it was always gonna come down to these two. The fans are thunderous as McIntyre steps in, and they start throwing haymakers!

The fans fire up, McIntyre ROCKS Sheamus then runs, but into a scoop and POWERSLAM! Sheamus puts McIntyre on the apron, and gives him MORE BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! TEN this round, and then Sheamus aims! BRO- NO! McIntyre rolls Sheamus up, TWO!! KNEE CAPPER! Sheamus runs, into a CLAYMORE!! Cover, McIntyre wins!!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

The Scottish Terminator continues on his path of redemption with this massive victory! Cathy Kelley interviews McIntyre in the ring, congratulating him on the win. McIntyre says he told us all he’d win this war, and that is what he did! Ready for more truths? McIntyre is walking into MITB this Saturday, and he is leaving Toronto the NEW World Heavyweight Champion! His mission is clear, but will McIntyre succeed and finally, truly, have his moment?

My Thoughts:

A great go-home for Raw to finalize things for MITB while still giving us great stuff for beyond that. More great stuff from the Judgment Day story. Priest catching Dom in his little lie was a good detail, and it gives the sense that Dom is starting to turn towards Liv in this raunchy little romcom. Dom of course plays a factor in Liv retaining her title, but nice turnaround as Liv then costs Dom against Rey. We might get a Mixed Tag out of that story at some point. Meanwhile, there’s tension growing between Finn and Priest over this “gentlemen’s agreement” Priest made with Rollins. Finn of course tries to still do things the Heel way but Priest wants to be honorable, which gets Finn beat up but Priest still stands tall. That go-home math makes me think that as far as Priest VS Rollins goes, Rollins finds a way to win.

With that, there’s a lot of moving parts in the MITB stories. Great promo to open with Jey and Gable each pointing a finger as to why The Wyatt Sick6 are targeting people, and that was a great way to bring out said Wyatt Sick6. Gable is definitely their prime target, and it was a good detail of him to again go scurrying back to Otis. Good on Otis to stay firm and say no, but Gable is doing that textbook toxic relationship thing where he promises to be better next time. I could see there being a Six Man Tag or even a Mixed Tag coming out of this, it’d make for a great way to get the Wyatt Sick6 going as in-ring talent again.

Another great promo from Bo as both himself and Uncle Howdy, who are of course revealed to be one in the same. This was a great continuation of last week, with the origins of this new Wyatt family being explained as a way for Bo to not only keep Bray’s legacy going, but for all the different superstars playing the parts of Mercy, Ramblin’ Rabbit, Huskus and Abby to keep their careers alive. Great promo segment from Sami and Bron, and Bron standing tall after three big impact moves back and forth was some good stuff. That indicates that Sami somehow survives Bron to retain. He already got Bron to “OLE” into steel steps, maybe he does that but with buckles in the ring to lead to a Helluva Kick.

Good match from Woods VS Kross but of course The Final Testament found a way to help Kross win that. That makes New Day 0-2 right now, and it feels like they need that missing piece back. Now, Big E may not be anywhere near cleared to wrestle, but he’s been traveling to do kickoff shows, so why not have him give his boys a pep talk so they can take the fight back to Final Testament? I think everyone would love that. Great Women’s Triple Threat tonight, especially with how it fed the other stories in the Raw Women’s Division. Zoey gets in because, well, she’s likely not winning but she’ll get a great showing. And then we got a very good brawl to set up a Six Woman Tag, DMG CTRL VS Lyra & KC Squared, though oddly Lyra, Alba & Isla makes a more logical trio to me.

And after some great promos to hype up the main event (including one where Kaiser gives as an injury update on his broken ribs; get well soon, Kaiser), we got an awesome main event Triple Threat. Dragunov got a great showing, but just as the match played out, it was very fitting Sheamus and McIntyre fought it out to finish. McIntyre winning was the right move, the clear move, and now there’s some real drama going into the ladder match. Sheamus will be fine, he can back track to the Intercontinental Championship because that’s still the one thing he needs to finish his checklist. But McIntyre could either win MITB, or get screwed by not just Punk but maybe even Punk’s wife, AJ Lee, as she wants her own payback for McIntyre making it so, so personal.

My Score: 8.9/10

Will Freshly Squeezed, The Violent Artist & the Stone Pitbull tear The Kingdom down? Or will Rampage in Little Rock be Undisputed?

The trios sort out, Roddy starts against Kyle, and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and go around. They fight for control in the clinch, end up on ropes, but then move around again. Roddy wrenches an arm, wristlocks, but Kyle spins and drop toeholds. Kyle floats to a waistlock but Roddy fights up. Roddy wrenches out, headlocks for the takeover, but Kyle rolls to a cover!

The two reset, but then Cassidy tags in. Taven also tags in, and Cassidy runs up to get around. Cassidy headlocks, Taven powers up and out, then drops down to hurdle over. Cassidy blocks hip toss to hip toss back! Cassidy arm-drags, then he fakes Taven out! Taven is mad but Cassidy DROPKICKS him! Cassidy kips up, is a little wobbly for it, but the fans cheer.

The Conglomeration has Bennett against ropes so that Kyle can KICK, Ishii can CHOP, and Cassidy can “chop.” KICK! CHOP! Chop. KICK! CHOP! Chop. KICK! CHOP! CHOP! Now Cassidy’s getting into it! KICK, CHOP, CHOP! Bennett sputters, Kyle & Ishii feed him to Cassidy’s SHOTGUN! Ishii covers, TWO! Bennett flounders around but Ishii stomps him, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Roddy shouts at Ishii but Ishii drags Bennett up and over to bump off buckles. Tag to Cassidy and he brings Bennett up to snapmare. Cassidy “runs” to LAZY ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Cassidy keeps Bennett from The Kingdom and tags in Kyle. They mug Bennett, then Kyle wrenches Bennett to an ELBOW BREAKER! Kyle hammerlocks, spins Bennett and snapmares him into a seated COBRA TWIST! Bennett endures, Cassidy gets in the shot so he can thumbs up, and then Kyle rolls Bennett into a cobra cradle! But Taven & Roddy distract the ref! Kyle lets Bennett go, and he stomps Bennett at the ropes.

Kyle bumps Bennett off Cassidy’s foot, then tags in Ishii. Ishii stalks Bennett, CHOPS him, but Bennett CHOPS back! Ishii doesn’t even flinch! Bennett CHOPS again, and that hurts his hand more than it does Ishii’s chest! Bennett CHOPS again, but Ishii CHOPS Bennett down! Rampage returns to single picture as Bennett sputters. Ishii CHOPS him again, and again, and again! Taven runs in, Ishii kicks him low, and fires a CHOP! Ishii CHOPS Taven, CHOPS Bennett, repeat! The CHOPS keep going, fans “WOO~!” and then Ishii runs. But Roddy trips Ishii up! The ref reprimands, Ishii BOOTS Roddy, and then Ishii breaks The Kingdom’s double clothesline!

Ishii comes back, he DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom, but Roddy DROPKICKS Ishii right after! The fans rally while Ishii and Bennett crawl again. Bennett hot tags Roddy and Roddy scoops Ishii for a BACKBREAKER! Roddy drags Ishii up to push him into the corner. Roddy CHOPS and Ishii sure felt that one! Roddy CHOPS again, then brings him around.

Roddy steps in, but then steps out when Kyle spots him. So Cassidy DIVES onto Roddy! Kyle fires off strikes on Taven, but Taven avoids the leg sweep!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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. They admittedly were collateral damage last week, but this is mostly them taking out their frustrations over losing twice in as many weeks. Will Austin Theory & Grayson Waller tear down the Undisputed WWE Champion? Or will he have back-up after all?

Cody heads to gorilla, and Kevin Owens is there! The Prizefighter says see you out there. Seems Solo forgot there is still someone crazy enough to defy him, because KO’s been doing it all along! Will Kevin #JustKeepFighting until he can’t fight no more?

SmackDown returns and ATDU makes their entrance. The teams sort out and Cody starts against Theory. The fans rally for Cody as the two circle. They tie up, and Theory headlocks.

Tama puts the chair around Kevin’s head, and says this is what he gets! Tama POSTS Kevin head first!! Fatu presents the ula fala, and The Bloodline gathers around their Tribal Chief. 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
