    Re: WWE: Another Passage [by Evangelestial & Tigerblood]

    Smackdown Live
    Episode #926
    May 16th, 2017


    Smackdown Live begins with Kevin Owens, the Face of America and United States Champion, out to address his opponent for Backlash, AJ Styles. Styles may have done a good job of "building" Smackdown Live but that's only because Kevin Owens was on Raw, and that "house" that AJ built is now the Kevin Owens show and he'll prove that to everyone this Sunday. Kevin Owens asserts that anyone with intelligence, which is hard to come by around here he adds while gesturing to the crowd, can figure it out just by looking at their career highlights, since Styles has just been an inferior Kevin Owens. And he can prove it. At WrestleMania 33, Styles did accomplish something Owens hasn't in WWE, he beat up a grandpa. He gives AJ props that he may have done too good of a job because that same grandpa has been unjustly forcing Owens to defend his United States Championship, his encounter with AJ will be his fourth defense in the span of a month. Anyway, before that AJ Styles was the WWE Champion and he had a decent reign that included losing weekly to James Ellsworth. Meanwhile, Owens was Universal Champion, and is still the longest reigning Universal Champion, beating out WWE Championship number one contender Finn Balor, current champ Roman Reigns, and legends like Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. Owens also throws out that his Universal Championship reign was longer than AJ's WWE reign. Going back further, AJ Styles #beatup John Cena, well guess what, "that was the first thing I did when I got here". Besides, Cena beat AJ for the WWE Championship, so a lot of good that did him. Prior to that, AJ Styles constantly failed to win the Championship from Roman Reigns. No matter how many bald rejects from Japan he had on his side, he couldn't beat Roman Reigns. Owens then brags about how he constantly defended his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns, citing it as yet another prime example of AJ's inferiority. But before that, AJ Styles made his WrestleMania debut by losing to Chris Jericho, "And just to bring this back full circle, at WrestleMania 33 I beat Chris Jericho for this United States Championship". AJ Styles makes his way out to the ring, telling Owens that he has a very skewed interpretation of their careers. Styles doesn't even know where to begin, so let's go through this beat by beat. Yes, he lost to Jericho and didn't beat Reigns but Reigns also had backup in their matches and the only reason Kevin Owens ever retained against Roman Reigns was because Chris Jericho or Braun Strowman helped you out. As for John Cena beating him for the WWE Championship, don't act like he's never done the same to you. Styles reminds Owens that Cena beat him for the United States Championship before, in fact, he made Owens tap out to do so. He tells Owens that if he wants to insult the intelligence of the fans then maybe he shouldn't make himself look like an idiot by forgetting the truth. Owens says now that Styles mentions it, Owens did forget some key points. AJ's career highlights aren't just worse versions of his but he is missing at least half of Kevin Owens. Including being a former Intercontinental Champion and being a United States Champion, which AJ Styles, no matter how phenomenal he thinks he is, will never accomplish. AJ just simply tells Kevin that "We'll see about that this Sunday" before beginning to make his exit. Once he turns around Owens grabs Styles but AJ was prepared for that, managing to knock Owens hand off him before hitting with the Pele Kick. Styles exits the ring and signals to Kevin that he'll be the US Champion at Backlash while Owens regroups in the ring with his Championship.

    Singles match ~ Mickie James, with Natalya, defeats Sasha Banks via Mick Kick at 8:47. The finish came when Natalya got on the ring apron, distracting Sasha who ran and knocked Natalya off, when she turned around Mickie had recouped enough to plant her with the winning move. After the match, Natalya grabbed a microphone and mocked Sasha Banks for losing once again. Stating that at Backlash, history will repeat itself once again, with Sasha's hand not getting raised at the end of the night.

    We see a hype package for the Luke Harper/Erik Rowan Falls Count Anywhere match for Backlash. Highlighting their run in the Wyatt Family, featuring vignettes of both reflecting on their post Wyatt world. Harper is glad to finally have escaped the madman's clutches and be able to focus on himself, or he would be if the vestige of Wyatt wasn't around in Erik Rowan. Conversely, Rowan asserts that he still is a Wyatt, and that he will continue to carry on the world's destruction as Bray sees fit, starting with the elimination of Luke Harper. At that point the vignette starts focusing on the carnage of their encounters in the last few weeks. After that, the commentators hype up the contract signing between WWE Champion Randy Orton and the newly crowned number one contender Dolph Ziggler.

    Tag Team match ~ The Usos defeats Enzo Amore & Big Cass via Superkick from Jimmy Uso on Big Cass at 9:17. The finish came when James Ellsworth came out just as Big Cass was dominating after a hot tag from Enzo. Temporarily distracting him enough for Jimmy to sneak a massive Superkick. Big Cass put his leg on the rope before the three count by Ellsworth knocks it off and the ref counts to three. Post match, Big Cass's anger causes him to chase James Ellsworth into the back, with Enzo tagging behind. The Usos take this opportunity to grab the mic and begin talking trash. They talk about their recent single losses, emphasizing that that ain't what this division is about. This, tag team wrestling is what determine the champs and as they just proved, they are unbeatable as a team. Sheamus & Cesaro make their way out, each with a microphone in hand. Cesaro asks Sheamus if they should tell the champs they only won because of Ellsworth, Sheamus responds "Nah, let's just beat them up". The two then drop the mics and dash towards the ring. The Usos seem down at first but quickly retreat into the crowd with the Championships in tow.

    After another Lars Sullivan hype promo, we catch up with Cass backstage as he finally corners James Ellsworth. Ellsworth almost immediately enters the fetal position as Big Cass yells at him for costing them a intentional shot at the Tag Team Championships. He brings up Enzo beating him two weeks, and stated that he isn't going to go easy on him. Enzo catches up and stops Cass before he begins his assault on Ellsworth. He manages to calm him down, they'll get another chance and Ellsworth ain't worth it, but as the two begin to leave, Ellsworth manages to utter a "Cowards" to them. Enzo then changes his tune, stating that he's going kill 'em but after Ellsworth's girly shriek as the two approach him, Cass asks Ellsworth what's his deal. James explains that you to taunted Carmella so much that she can't even speak anymore and that he's out to fight for her honor. Cass straight up asks him if he wants to fight, his aggression replaced with pity, and James Ellsworth agrees. Cass says "Backlash, then". Ellsworth tells Cass "You'll regret this", all while remaining in the fetal position. Both Enzo & Cass roll their eyes before leaving him.

    Curt Hawkins makes his way down the ring, telling the fans that he's been practicing a new talent, and was hoping to debut it in front of the WWE Universe. He cites Aiden English as an inspiration, that he has a lovely tune to sing, specifically for him. The song lyrics are relatively simple, "Aiden just face the Facts, you can't siiiinnnnnnggggg", Hawkins bursts out going as high as he can for the final note. Aiden English comes out, apologizing for the mockery of the art from Curt Hawkins before launching into his own song. Curt Hawkins gets another cheap shot in with the microphone, ceasing the song and knocking Aiden out of the ring. He picks up the microphone once more and ask English point blank for another match, this time, at Backlash! Aiden English agrees under the condition that if he won, Curt Hawkins would have to attend one of his one man show concerts. Hawkins says that he'd rather risk his career than that but Aiden's got a deal!

    We return to Smackdown Live with a New Day promo, and are then joined by the commentators who they themselves have a guest, the number one contender to the Women's Champion, Becky Lynch! They hype up the next match featuring Smackdown Live's Women's Champion, Asuka.

    Singles match ~ Asuka defeats local talent Maxi Milan via Asuka Lock at 2:42. Following the match, Becky Lynch storms in the ring, and the two have a face-to-face. Asuka drops the Championship on the ground and invites Becky Lynch for a brawl, but Becky backs off, and just motions with her hands the championship motion over the stomach before leaving the ring.

    Backstage, Shane McMahon is conversing with somebody on the phone. He states, "Fine, if that's what it takes, done. I want this match to be as historic as possible. I'll announce it next week, thank you." After he hangs up, Apollo Crews shows up to Shane McMahon. He tells Shane that he isn't just target practice for Kevin Owens, he's more than that and he can prove it. He just needs an opportunity, he needs a match at Backlash to show his true worth. At this point, Mojo Rawley enters the office, he apologizes for interrupting but he tells Shane that as of late, he's been nothing but a failure. He failed to win the US title, and despite his best efforts, Dolph beat him last week too. But Mojo knows that his winning of the Andre the Giant Battle Royal wasn't just a fluke. And he desperately wants to prove it, he's just asking for a shot. Shane said this gave him a great idea, at Backlash, Mojo Rawley and Apollo Crews, will go one on one.

    Tag Team match ~ Heath Slater & Rhyno defeats The Ascension via Gore from Rhyno on Viktor at 11:14. Following the victory Drew McIntyre blindsides the team, managing to hit the Future Shock DDT on both despite attempts at resistance. After the beatdown, McIntyre grabs a mic and leans down next to Slater's beaten down body. He once more tells Slater that he is a pathetic excuse of a wrestler. He uses this match as a perfect example, Heath only won because of Rhyno. McIntyre yells that he's already beaten Rhyno so what chance does the parasite have against him! He drops the mic and begins to walk away but stops himself. He picks up the microphone once more to deliver one simple message "And this is for last week.", McIntyre lifts Slater up again and nails him with the Future Shock DDT.

    Shane McMahon is out in the ring, which is all decorated with a table and fancy chairs for the contract signing for the WWE Championship match at Backlash. He tells the fans that this isn't the contract signing that he wanted to have, reminding everyone that Finn Balor was suppose to be in the WWE Championship match. But the unprofessional, petty, and cowardly tactics of the WWE Champion prompted a change in plans. Shane begins to introduce Randy Orton, but the WWE Champion comes out before McMahon can finish. Orton gets real close to Shane and warns him to watch what he says, because the WWE Champion is the most important person on the roster. His attack on Finn Balor wasn't cowardly or petty or even unprofessional, he was ridding the WWE Universe of a fluke winner. The fact that Balor isn't here isn't because Randy's a coward who took a cheap shot, it's because Finn Balor isn't capable of handling Randy Orton. He tells Shane that one kick was enough to finish him, and it'd only take one to finish Shane too. Shane doesn't back down, he out-right tells Orton to try it and it'll be the last thing you'll ever do as WWE Champion. Dolph Ziggler comes out at this point. Ziggler says he feels the need to remind everyone that the match at Backlash isn't Orton vs.Shane McMahon for the WWE Championship at Backlash, it's Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler! Dolph understands though, Orton just loves to change opponents when he feels threatened. He felt threatened by Finn so he punted him in the head and now he feels threaten by Dolph, so he tries to get himself fired. "It's less embarrassing to lose the Championship that way, right Randy?" But that's not going to happen, what's going to happen is at Backlash, Dolph is going to prove to everyone that he is just as good as he always said. Randy Orton re-insists that he's not threatened by anyone, as he picks up the contract and signs his name on the dotted line. Before Dolph can grab the contract, Finn Balor music plays, and the original number one contender makes his way down the ramp. Once he gets to the ramp, he speaks up. He Randy Orton that he's failed, Finn Balor will be healthy enough to compete for the WWE Championship at Backlash. He says "Sorry Dolph but I'll give you the first shot as compensation". As Finn begins to make his way in the ring, Dolph grabs the microphone and sarcastically apologizes to Finn, "I signed the contract while you were talking, my Championship match is legally binding now". But hey, Dolph will give him the first shot . . . if he feels like it. Shane McMahon interjects at this point, stating that while Dolph is required to compete for the WWE Championship, that doesn't mean it'll have to be a singles match. Neither Randy or Dolph are happy with where this is going but Balor, who is now in the ring, is smiling bright, especially as Shane makes the Backlash Main Event official, "Randy Orton will defend his WWE Championship in a triple threat against Dolph Ziggler and Finn Balor!" Randy Orton grabs Shane McMahon but Shane is quickly saved by Finn, who takes the fight to the Champ. Dolph eventually joins in, siding with Orton to take out Balor. After Finn is knocked down, Dolph turns on Orton, knocking him down with a superkick. Dolph then places the table diagonally and places Orton on it, potentially setting up for a top rope dive through the table. However Finn returns to his feet and knocks Dolph down with a Sling Blade right next to the table. Finn then looks at Orton lying on the table and then to the closest turnbuckle. Balor begins to climb the turnbuckle, setting up for a Coup de Grace through a table on Orton but Dolph jumps on the top rope, crotching Finn. Dolph then has a smug smile on his face, he sets up for a superplex, aiming to superplex Finn onto Orton and through a table. However Orton rolls off the table right before the Finn collides with the table. Orton starts eagerly waiting for Dolph to get to his feet, once he does he hits Ziggler with an RKO. Orton takes some time to celebrate with the WWE Championship before he notices Dolph's position. He places the Championship at his feet then slowly begins walking towards the further away adjacent turnbuckle to Dolph. The commentators bring up the Punt Kick and how this will result in Orton getting fired according to Shane. When Orton turns around to face Dolph however, he's meet with a running front dropkick from Finn Balor. Finn then ascends to the top turnbuckle, and nails Orton with the Coup de Grace. He then picks up the WWE Championship, looks at it for a bit before laying it across the body of the current Champion, to close the go-home show for Backlash.

    Pre-Show


    Singles match ~ Apollo Crews defeats Mojo Rawley via Spin-Out Powerbomb at 8:20.



    Smackdown Tag Team Championships: Sheamus & Cesaro vs. The Usos (c)
    The match starts off with Cesaro and Jimmy Uso in the match, and Cesaro immediately takes it to Jimmy, delivering a running uppercut followed by a quick pinfall attempt thwarted at 1. Following that the two begin locking up, with every exchange winding up in Cesaro's favor. After Cesaro nails Jimmy with a double foot stomp, Jimmy goes for a tag, which Cesaro allows, instead choosing to tag Sheamus in. Sheamus immediately goes for a Brogue Kick on Jey but Jey ducks under and mounts some offense on Sheamus, nailing him with a backdrop. Jey then runs and rebounds off the ropes as Sheamus gets up to capitalize but is meet with a thunderous clothesline from Sheamus instead. From here on out Sheamus dominates Jey, shutting down any offense Jey might get rather quickly. Eventually, Sheamus lands Jey in position for the Beats of Bodhran. Before he pounds Jey's chest five times, he tags in Cesaro. Sheamus continues beating Jey's chest with foream clubs another five team, meanwhile Cesaro runs to the other side of the ring and rebounds off the ropes. After Sheamus hits the tenth he moves out of the way and Cesaro nails Jey with a modified Swiss-1-9 targeting Jey's stomach. After hitting the Swiss-1-9, Cesaro lands on the outside, he gets in position at the exact moment Jey tumbles out forward, planting him with a mid-air catching European Uppercut. However once he turns back around to facing the ring, he's assaulted by a flying Jimmy Uso's suicide dive. Sheamus chases Jimmy away from them, Jimmy jumps over the steel steps and when Sheamus follows in pursuit, Jimmy dropkicks the steel steps into Sheamus' knees, before returning to the ring apron. Cesaro gets up before Jey and goes to lift him up to bring him into the ring, but Jey was manages to grab Cesaro and throw him face first into the apron, Jey then rolls into the ring as the ref counts to 6. The two relish the thought of a count-out victory, unfortunately for them, Cesaro makes it back in at 9, as he charges in Jey jumps and tags in Jimmy. While Jimmy enters the ring, Jey exits it. Cesaro manages to knock down Jimmy but is distracted when he notices that Jey is attacking Sheamus' hurt knee from earlier. Jimmy takes advantage and goes for a roll-up, only managing to get a two count, during the pinfall Jey went back to his corner as the ref yelled at him. From this point on, the Usos made use of quick tags on Cesaro to maintain the advantage, while every once in awhile the non-legal man would return to target Sheamus knee in order to keep the match as a handicap.

    Cesaro does eventually manage to regain control, after Jimmy dashed to a weaken Cesaro in the corner, where Sheamus is suppose to be, attempting a running body splash, only for Cesaro to move out of the way in the nick of time. Cesaro wastes little time to capitalize, he dashes towards Jey and knocks him down with a stiff shot. Without wasting a breath, he immediately turns right away and sprints to nail Jimmy with a devastating corner Uppercut. Cesaro moves Jimmy closer to the center and goes for a cover but only gets a two count. Once he gets up Jey tries to return the favor with a clothesline but Cesaro ducks and takes Jey down with the legs, beginning the Cesaro Swing. Once he throws Jey off, Jimmy goes for a superkick but is blocked by Cesaro, who twirls him around before taking his legs down and hitting the Cesaro Swing once more. After Cesaro regains his composure after two swings, he lifts Jimmy up and hits him with the Neutralizer. One . . . Two . . . ThJey breaks it up! Cesaro gains the advantage on Jey here too, tossing him out of the ring, or so he thought as Jey held on to the ropes. Cesaro turns around and eats a Superkick from Jimmy, Jey goes from the apron to the top and nails the Samoan Splash on Cesaro. Jimmy then goes for the cover and One . . . Two . . Sheamus breaks it up! Sheamus clears house, he then assists Cesaro to the their corner, before Sheamus returns to his post and gets tagged into the match. Sheamus runs in full speed but is immediately taking down by Jimmy with a dropkick to the bad knee. Jimmy then tags in Jey, while holding Sheamus in a front face-lock, Jey performs a jumping stomp to Sheamus' bad knee. From this point on, Jey targets the knee. After a while of failing to get Sheamus to tap, Sheamus eventually manages to get his third wind, catching a Jey mid-crossbody, transferring him on his shoulders and hitting a rolling fireman's carry slam. Sheamus goes to tag in Cesaro but Jimmy runs in and takes Sheamus down with a running chop to his bad knee. Cesaro doesn't take kind to that, enter the ring anyway and focusing his attack on Jimmy. Jey recovers and helps his brother but Cesaro fends himself off well. Eventually taking Jimmy down with a dropkick, then locking on the Sharpshooter on Jey. The ref begins the count on Cesaro and tells him to get out of the ring. Cesaro eventually complies letting go of the Sharpshooter but is greeted with a Superkick from Jimmy before he can leave the ring. Jimmy turns around only to get slaughtered by a Brogue Kick from Sheamus but Sheamus was supporting the move with his more damaged leg, making him collapse after delivering the move. Jey manages to make his way to the top rope, and delivers a Samoan Splash directly on the bad knee of Sheamus. He then covers Sheamus but sitting on him, while grabbing and stretching out the bad leg for the One . . . Two . . . Three!

    Winner
    The Usos (c)

    Time
    16:53

    Aiden English vs. Curt Hawkins
    Before the match can begin proper, English, with microphone in hand, tells the referee to wait before ringing the bell. Claiming this is perhaps his biggest spotlight moment, he needed to sink it in through performance. Before he can belt out his first note, Hawkins snatches the mic from his hand and tells the ref "ring the bell". Hawkins drops the mic and the bell rings seconds after, a frustrated Aiden charges for Hawkins, who easily dodges and begins his own assault. Hawkins backs Aiden into a corner and wails on him. Before the ref can DQ him, Hawkins throws Aiden to the floor for a quick cover and with a quick kick out. Hawkins continues on the offensive for a little bit, keeping him grounded for the most part, and throwing in a few suplexes followed by a pin attempt to mix it up. After the fourth cover of the match Aiden retreats to the outside. Aiden takes a short breather and tells the ref to make sure Curt doesn't follow him. The ref doesn't listen and Curt dashes outside and chases English around the ring before Aiden slides back in. Once Hawkins slides in English drops a pointed elbow drop on him. From here Aiden English controls the flow of the match, until eventually hitting The Director's Cut. Having beaten Hawkins with it twice before, Aiden goes for a cocky cover, only using his elbow and body weight, and this costs him the fall as Hawkins kicks. English is incredulous, and locks in a sleeper hold on the ever rising Curt Hawkins. Hawkins elbows the hold loose before bringing both to the apron, where he pushes Aiden off. As Aiden reaches the ropes on the other side, Hawkins is right on his trail, sliding under the bottom rope and tripping English in the process. Hawkins then goes up top, and flies with the Heat Seeking Elbow, only for Aiden to move out of the way. English then lifts Hawkins up for a second Director's Cut, but Hawkins fights him off and hits him with a Hangman's Facebuster in order to finally beat Aiden English.

    Winner
    Curt Hawkins

    Time
    6:58

    Out next are Enzo Amore and Big Cass, the two go through their usual spiel, at the end saying that "It's never been any more clear that there is only one word to describe ya" before spelling it out along with the WWE universe. James Ellsworth comes out with a microphone in hand too, and telling Enzo & Cass that they got it wrong. There is only one word to describe Ellsworth but it ain't sawft, it's the opposite of sawft, "And I'm gonna spell it out for ya, T-A-W-F-F, Tawff!". And he needs to prove that tonight because a tawff lady, needs a tawff man, James calls Carmella out for a front-row seat to the action. Carmella doesn't come out, Ellsworth asks again. Carmella doesn't show. Ellsworth begins to ask a third time before Cass chimes in demanding Carmella to get out already. Carmella responds and Cass just shakes his head at Ellsworth's glee. Cass offers Ellsworth a chance to back down before the bell ring and James responds by claiming that it doesn't matter how scared Cass is, Ellsworth isn't letting him off easy like that.

    Big Cass (with Enzo Amore) vs. James Ellsworth (with Carmella)
    Once the bell rings Big Cass nails Ellsworth with a Running Knee Boot and covers him for the three count.

    Winner
    Big Cass

    Time
    0:08

    Following the match Carmella seems a bit disappointed, rolling her eyes before she begins to make her way out. Big Cass & Enzo Amore get on the mic and chastise her for her ungrateful behavior, noting that this rube got brain blasted for her sake. Cass lifts Ellsworth up and raises his hand, before leaning him in the corner since he still can't stand. The two walk out past Carmella and shoot her for shame looks. Carmella enters the ring and helps bring Ellsworth to the back.

    Natalya vs. Sasha Banks
    The match started off exactly like their match on Smackdown a few weeks ago, with a few grapple exchanges that Sasha would come out on top off, resulting in Natalya escaping the ring. Unlike on Smackdown Live though, Sasha nails her with the Suicide Dive as soon as Natalya rolls out the first time. She then throws her back into the ring without wasting any time and go for the pin, only getting a 1 count. Sasha continues on the attack, now blowing Natalya with some stiff kicks, backing Natalya into the ropes. Banks goes to pick Natalya away from the ropes but Natalya manages to throw Sasha out of the ring. Nattie then immediately instructs the ref to begin counting but Sasha returns to the ring right at two and dashes towards Natalya. At the same time, Natalya runs off to the ropes and once Sasha gets in range she pulls down on the top rope, sending Sasha colliding to the floor below. Again, Nattie urges the referee to keep counting. Sasha returns to the ring at 3 and once more dashes to Natalya, who repeats her same strategy. This time however when she pulls down the ropes, Sasha isn't there tumbling down. Natalya bent down backwards holding the ropes looks on in horror as Sasha smirks, then kicks out Natalya's leg causing her to fall flat. Natalya then attempts to roll out of the ring but Sasha grabs her through the ropes before she leaves the apron. Banks lifts her up by her hair but Natalya reverses, stun gunning her and then grabbing her before she gets too far away. Natalya attempts to hit a suplex off the apron but Sasha fights her way out of it, landing on the apron next to Natalya, who quickly regains momentum by spiking Sasha with a DDT on the apron. Nattie throws Banks back into the ring and confidently covers her, only to receive a two. Natalya then transitions to submission holds, locking on the Pin-Up Strong. Natalya relinquishes the hold once it the pain has been done, she then drags Sasha Banks to the middle of the ring and goes to lock on the Sharpshooter but Banks rolls her up into a two count. One both return to their feet Sasha brings Nattie down with a dropkick, and follows up with double knee backbreaker which she transitions into a Bank Statement. Natalya crawls to the ropes but as soon as she gets close, Sasha uses her foot to kick off the ropes and roll them back away from ropes, applying the Bank Statement even more viciously now. Natalya doesn't tap though, instead countering it into a failed pinfall attempt at two. Natalya retreats to the corner of the ring, something which Sasha is cool with, as she flips Natalya's legs on to the second rope. Before she can attack Natalya to make her docile like a winter catfish, Natalya sneaks an eye poke on Sasha, returns to solid ground and then throws her against the corner. Natalya then lifts her up, setting up for a Superplex, Sasha doesn't let her hit it though. Instead smashing Natayla's head against the top turnbuckle, and sunset flipping over her to the floor, instead of powerbombing her though, Sasha instead opts to push Nattie into the corner. From her new position sat on the second ropes in the corner, Sasha manages to transition her to lying on the corner, allowing her to hit the diving double knee drops. Sasha Banks covers Natalya, who kicks out a two and a half. Both return to their feet at around the same time and Natalya goes for a Nattie-by-Nature but Sasha ducks under, and once again hits the double knee backbreaker to lock on the Bank Statement. This time Natalya has nowhere to go, and is forced to tap out to the Boss.

    Winner
    Sasha Banks

    9:08

    Backstage we see Heath Slater and Rhyno together. Heath tells Rhyno that he's been thinking a lot about this and he needs to go out there tonight and fight Drew McIntyre on his own. Rhyno begins to question him, after all the dirty, under-handed attacks Drew caused on them, but Heath cuts him off, saying he knows. But he also knows that on some level, what Drew said on Smackdown was right. And that he needs to prove that it isn't. That he doesn't need help to win. Rhyno states he understands, and tells Slater to break Drew's leg in encouragement.

    Drew McIntyre vs. Heath Slater
    Drew immediately starts the match on top with a running clothesline. Slater isn't capable of getting in much offense from there, as Drew just relentlessly pummels Slater with knee drops, punches, kicks and the occasional suplex whether it be a snap or an overhead belly-to-belly. The match changes but not in favor for Slater, McIntyre throws him to the outside but Slater holds on to the ropes only to be knocked outside with a big boot. The torment for Slater only got worse, as Drew would viciously blast his head of the announce table to start his assault, moving on to the steel steps next. Drew gets a little more creative with his attacks, after pounding his head against the steps, McIntyre used the steps in lieu of his knees in a shoulder breaker to Slater. McIntyre then enters and exits the ring to the break the count, and continues his destruction of his former 'ally' with a gutwrench suplex onto the apron. Slater ends up falling to the floor following that, but McIntyre grabs him and throws him back in the ring. Once Slater manages to get up using the ropes, he turns around to be nailed with the Claymore, Drew goes for a cover but lifts Slater's head up before the three. He then places Slater on the top rope, setting up for a Superplex. McIntyre takes his sweet time to gloat and relish in the moment, and Slater slips off the ropes into the ring and quickly powerbombs McIntyre. Slater spends the time afterwards recuperating in the corner as Drew gets back to his feet. Once McIntyre does return to his feet, Slater hits him with a Gore! He then goes for a cover but McIntyre kicks out before even two. Slater attempts to hit McIntrye with the Smash Hit but before he can even lift him up, McIntyre counters the move into the Future Shock DDT, which gives him the three count.

    Winner
    Drew McIntyre

    Time
    7:45

    Following the match, McIntyre continues his assault on Heath Slater, prompting Rhyno to come out to aid his partner. Drew was prepare for this however, almost immediately knocking Rhyno off with the Future Shock as well. He then knocks both of them out of the ring, and stands defiantly in his ring.

    Smackdown Women's Championship: Becky Lynch vs. Asuka (c)
    The match begins with a lock-up that sees Lynch ultimately immediately place Asuka in the Dis-Arm-Her. It doesn't take Asuka long to maneuver out of the hold and it doesn't take Lynch long to lock it back in. This time Asuka breaks the hold using the ropes, though Becky holds on til three. When she finally does let go and Asuka raises to her feet she's sporting an unnerving smile at Becky's aggressive actions. Becky tries once more to lock on the Dis-Arm-Her but Asuka doesn't let her, and instead begins to lock in the Asuka lock. Once Becky recognizes the signs she jolts to the ropes with her limb stretched out frantically, managing to grab the ropes before Asuka could fully apply the hold. Becky Lynch is slow to let go of the ropes, until Asuka starts egging her on. Becky flies off with a clothesline that Asuka ducks under, she then pummels Becky with some spinning back fists, knocking her down with a roundhouse kick. Asuka goes for the pinfall but Becky kicks out at one.

    From this point the match transitions into an Asuka fest, with her managing to remain in control for a lot of the action. Becky isn't defenseless though, every now and again she manages to get some offense in, by continuing to target the arm. Whether it be hitting classics like an inverted DDT while applying a hammerlock or altering her moves, like targeting Asuka's arm while performer her corner springboard side-kick. Still, she could never gain momentum for long before Asuka brings her to a screeching halt. The last time Becky attempted a punch, Asuka countered with a flying cross armbar. This time Becky tried to irish whip her into the corner, Asuka would quickly position herself on the middle rope and jump off knocking Becky down with missile dropkick. Her upper half does pop up though, allowing Asuka to run rebound off the ropes for a Shining Wizard and a two count. Asuka then slaps her rear signalling for a running hip attack. She ends up going for it on Becky, who manages to ducks and catches her for the Electric Chair Drop. Becky goes for a cover but can't put Asuka down, Asuka lifts the targeted arm when she kicks out, and Becky grabs the arm and places it in her on cross armbreaker, though isn't able to make Asuka tap. Lynch then nails her with a Pumphandle Side Slam and once again doesn't get a three count. Becky goes to continue on the attack by lifting Asuka but Becky is instead dropped by Asuka with an ankle lock. Once Lynch eventually returns to one foot, Asuka plants her with a German suplex to a two count. Asuka then goes for a Spin Kick but Lynch ducks and hits her own German on Asuka, despite the bridging Asuka still kicks out. Once both return to their feet, Becky hits with the Bexploder Suplex! However she's not done as she quickly hits Asuka with a second Bexploder Suplex! But she isn't done with yet, Becky delivers a third Bexploder in a row. 1 . . . 2 . . . ThrKick Out!

    Lynch is left in absolute disbelief as Asuka kicked out before two. See triple checks with the ref that it was only three before returning to Asuka. Lynch also seems keen to return to the Bexploder but Asuka has different plans. Asuka assaults her way out of it, and quickly hits the Spin Kick. Asuka covers Becky and gets a treatment of her own medicine, with Lynch kicking out milliseconds before three. As Becky slowly return to her feet, by gaining balance on her knees first, Asuka starts delivering stiff shoot kicks to Lynch, finishing it off with a roundhouse kick or so she thought, as Becky avoids that and goes for a roll-up. 1 . . . 2 . . Kick-out! When both return to their feet Asuka does manage to hit Lynch with a running hip attack, and after a quick celebration/boast to the audience, Asuka returns her attention to Lynch. Becky has just enough strength to attempt a sneak Dis-Arm-Her, it almost works but Asuka manages to get to the ropes before Lynch can cinch it in. Becky keeps it on until four this time before breaking the hold. Becky once again grasps Asuka's hurt arm, seemingly going for the Dis-Arm-Her again but instead Asuka reverses in manages to lock in the Asuka Lock. Still, Lynch has a surprising amount of fight in her, she manages to roll onto her stomach and struggle to crawl to the ropes. Once she reaches her arm out for the ropes, Asuka swings right back onto her back properly locking the hold back on, and Becky's arm of salvation almost instantly goes limp, giving Asuka the win.

    Winner

    United States Championship: AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens (c)
    The match begins with the two locking up, Styles begins to gain the advantage with a side headlock but Owens stomps on Styles foot and brings him down with a headlock takedown. Owens keeps the hold applied on the ground for as long as he can but Styles quickly gets to his feet and elbows KO in the gut until he breaks the hold, Owens quickly grabs Styles hair and slams him down on the mat. The ref yells at him to watch the hair but Owens is too busy going on the offensive, he lands some punches to the head of the ground AJ before hitting him with a running senton for not even a one count. Owens then locks in a reverse chinlock on AJ Styles, with his knee against the back. Much like last time, this doesn't last for too long before Styles maneuvers his way out of it, and this time he follows up with the Phenomenal Blitz. From here on out the two began trading moves back and forth for awhile. No big move is hit until Owens brings out the pumphandle neckbreaker, though it only gets a count of 1 and a three quarters. Owens from there goes to the top turnbuckle but is caught by Styles with an Enzuigiri, setting up Owens for a Superplex. Owens manages to fight out of it though, pushes Styles off and hit a high angle senton bomb for another 1 and three quarters attempt. Kevin again reverts to straight out punching a grounded Styles before transiting into the next move. This time it's a Go Home Driver, which manages a two count.

    Kevin Owens then irish whips Styles into the ropes, Styles holds on to the ropes though. Owens dashes toward Styles who lifts a leg up in defense, though this time Kevin grabs the leg and decks AJ in the face. Styles falls to the ground and Owens grabs both legs. He positions Styles under the ring ropes, before Owens back bumps catapulting Styles neck into the bottom rope. Owens lifts Styles up and places him in the corner, Owens backs away and dashes to hit the Cannonball but Styles moves out of the way. Once Owens recovers AJ plants him with the Ushigoroshi, getting a two count on the United States Champion. Styles stays on the offensive, hitting Owens with a Rack Bomb not too long after, getting another two count on the Champion. Styles then goes for the Styles Clash, but before he could even lift Owens up, Owens frees his head and charges with Styles in tow right into the corner turnbuckle. Punching him until he falls to the seated position and stomping a mudhole until the ref's count forces him to back off. KO doesn't stay off for long, planting him with the Cannonball before scoring yet another two fall on Styles. Owens then picks him up with a package lift, switching him off into a sidewalk slam for a two and a half count. Once more Kevin Owens beats on the grounded Styles before lifting him up, going for another irish whip but instead Styles reverses and sends Owens to the ropes, one rebound later and Owens is planted with a dropkick. Both return to their feet at the same time and Owens goes for a clothesline that Styles ducks under and follows up with a Pele kick right on the money. Styles only gets a two count though. Owens regroups in the corner while Styles is closer to the middle of the ring. Styles dashes towards him and jumps up aiming for a forearm smash in the corner but Owens dodges and nails Styles with a Superkick afterwards, nailing another two and half count.

    KO picks up Styles and for a third time irish whips him to the ropes, once again Styles avoids the Pop-Up Powerbomb, this time by jumping over the ring ropes and landing on the apron instead of rebounding off the ropes. Owens runs to knock Styles off but Styles catches Owens errant punch and hits KO with a forearm smash, sending Owens back to the middle of the ring. AJ Styles springboards off for the Phenomenal Forearm but KO rolls under avoiding the strike, Styles to rolls through from the miss, resulting in them both being on the opposite side of the ring. AJ Styles immediately runs towards KO but gets caught with the Pop-Up Powerbomb! 1 . . . 2 . . . Th-Kick Out! Owens is gushing with anger until he eventually smirks, apparently having figured out how to deal with AJ. He mimics Chris Jericho's arm spread pose as he awaits for Styles to get up. Once he does Owens hits the Codebreaker on Styles! 1 . . . 2 . . . Kick Out! Owens begins to lift AJ up again, yelling at him to stay down right before Styles shocks Kevin Owens by rolling him up into the Calf Crusher! Owens struggles in the hold, desperately attempting to grab holds of the rope. He eventually manages his goal, forcing Styles to break the hold. Owens manages to return to his feet slightly quicker thanks to using the ropes, so when Styles charges to him Owens is prepares and nails him with another Pop-Up Powerbomb. Unlike last time, Owens isn't able to immediately cover Styles, as his leg buckles on him due to the effects of the Calf Crusher after delivering the move. When he does manage to cover him, he once again is presented with a last minute kick-out.

    Kevin Owens then in his anger throws Styles outside the ring. KO joins him quickly after and after he hits him with a devastating Apron Powerbomb. KO then lifts AJ Styles back up, looking to throw him back in. But he stops before throwing him in, and another evil grin washes across Kevin's face, he re-positions AJ Styles' head in-between Owens' legs. He hits Styles with a second Apron Powerbomb. Kevin Owens then yells to AJ Styles, about the Kevin Owens show and how he is the Face of America, Not Styles, Never Styles. He then rolls back into the ring as the ref reaches the count of nine. Owens gets up and lifts his arms in victory at the same time the ref lifts his arms to count AJ Styles out.

    Winner
    Kevin Owens (c) by Count-Out

    Falls Count Anyhwere: Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan
    Harper vs. Rowan starts off with a burst of energy, as both men just punch eachother silly for the opening segments. Rowan is eventually able to knock Harper down with a punch, and punches Harper to the ropes. Rowan tries to clothesline Harper out of the ring but instead finds himself on the apron after Harper avoided him. Rowan doesn't get comfortable, as Harper plants him with a big boot knocking Rowan off the apron. Harper joins him outside soon with an impressive suicide dive. This leads both facing the ramp way, but rather than go in that direction the two brawl themselves across the ring. We see them pounding their heads off of steel steps, slamming the other person into the barricade, and other vicious actions. Once the two got to the announce table however, Rowan hits the biggest spot of the match, powerbombing Harper through one of the announce tables. Rowan goes for a cover but only gets a two. From there the two continue their brawling ways making a full circle around the ring before heading up the ramp. Once the two on the stage, Erick Rowan manages to knock down Luke, and then looks over the the stage. Rowan goes for a running powerslam off the stage but Luke Harper slides out of it, and when Rowan turns around, he's hit with a superkick that sends him falling backwards off the stage through some tables. Harper waits for Rowan to get back on his feet, and when he does Harper leaps off the stage and nails Rowan with a crossbody. It takes him quite some time but Harper does manage a cover to a two count. Once Rowan returned to his feet, Luke put him away with a Discus Lariat.

    Winner
    Luke Harper

    WWE Championship: Dolph Ziggler vs. Finn Balor vs. Randy Orton (c)
    The main event kicks off with a three-way stand out that predictably sees Orton and Ziggler signalling a temporarily alliance to take out Finn early. As soon as Finn notices the signs, he dashes Dolph with an elbow shot to the head, and then alternates between attacking Orton and Ziggler in an effort to not succumb to the number games. He holds out for awhile but eventually it's too much. Dolph and Orton start double teaming Balor with actual tag moves, they hit him with double suplex. They keep the pressure on but things take a turn when they went for a double back drop suplex, as Finn flipped over and landed on his feet. He quickly made a run for the ropes and when he rebounded both men had turned around just in time to be nailed by single leg dropkick each. Both men also had the same recourse, to roll outside the ring, both choosing opposite sides. Balor chases Dolph, and stands on the apron just waiting for Dolph to return to his feet. Once he does using the apron, Finn runs towards him and delivers an impressive kick right to the jaw, knocking Dolph back off his feet. Randy Orton then comes up from behind on Balor, managing to hit him with a rope hung DDT. Orton followed up with a cover but only got a two count. Dolph returns to the ring and goes to join Orton in his match-up against Finn but to Dolph's surprise, as Ziggler awaited for Finn to return to his feet, Orton grabbed Ziggler from behind, nailing him with his inverted headlock backbreaker. Orton then clotheslined Finn out of the ring, and resumed to target Ziggler in the ring. The pace began to slow down at this point, with Orton relying on rest holds, whenever Ziggler would break out of one, Orton would manage to knock him back down, whether it be with a powerful clothesline or a tight dropkick. Finally, after bringing Ziggler down with a back body drop, Orton moves to the farthest corner from Ziggler. With Ziggler's position, it's obvious that Orton is planning to risk his career with a Punt Kick. He rushes forward to Dolph as soon as he sees his shot but Ziggler gets up and nails him with a Superkick instead. One . . . Two . . . Finn Balor breaks up the count!

    The match then becomes a one-on-one between Finn and Ziggler. The two exchange moves with plenty of near falls between them. If Dolph would land a Jumping DDT to a near fall, Finn would be soon to get a near fall with a Reverse 1916. If Dolph would almost win the match with the Famouser, then Finn would almost win with an Overhead kick. The constant barrage of moves between the two only finally started slowing down once Dolph locked in the Sleeper Hold on Finn. After a few minutes of struggling, Balor managed to roll Dolph off, and nail him with an Enzuigiri for yet another two count in their encounter. In response, Finn eagerly awaited for Dolph to begin getting up, once the motion was set Finn ran and rebound off the ropes. However Ziggler regained awareness quicker than Finn anticipated, and as Finn went for a crossbody so did Ziggler, causing a mid-air collision that left both challengers down. Randy Orton choose this moment to re-enter the match. Finn was the first one to return to his feet and he was knocked down with a clothesline. When Ziggler got up next he was also greeted with a clothesline from Orton. Orton turned around just in time to duck an incoming clothesline from Finn, allowing Orton to deliver a snap scoop powerslam to Balor when he turned around. Randy noticed that Dolph was getting to his feet, and prepped himself for the RKO. Orton went for the RKO but Ziggler countered it into an inverted scoop powerslam. Dolph turned the champion around for yet another two count. Dolph then prepped for the Superkick on Orton but met the same fate as Orton, as Randy caught Dolph's leg. Once he throws Dolph's foot aside Orton attempts yet another RKO, only to be pushed off into the corner. Ziggler wastes little time in attempting a Zig Zag but Orton held onto the ropes, resulting in Dolph landing hard on the floor. Orton quickly nails Dolph with a leaping knee drop to the head and covers him for yet another two count.

    Balor re-engages the action here, knocking Orton down with a leaping elbow smash. Finn remains in steady control of Orton for awhile, eventually cornering him to the ropes, Orton finally gains his edge again but managing to sneak an eye poke on Finn Balor. Orton then goes for the big moves, as he sets Finn up for yet another rope assisted elevated DDT. This time however Finn was ready for it, his feet return to the ring and he manages to flip Randy Orton out of the ring. Not too long after, Dolph dashes to Finn but Balor hits him with a back body drop, causing Ziggler to land on the recently standing Randy outside. Finn then looks around the ring and outside to his opponents as he stands in the middle of the ring. Once both get up he runs and rebounds off the rope, flying high with suicide somersault senton to both Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton. Once Finn gets back to his feet, he grabs Randy Orton and throws him back into the ring. Finn stalks Orton from the closest corner, and once Orton is up Finn strikes with the Sling Blade. Balor then moves to the opposite turnbuckle, awaiting for Orton's rise once more. As soon as Randy reaches his feet, Finn dashes and nails him with a front dropkick, sending Orton straight into the turnbuckle. Which bounces him to the floor and sets him up for the Coup de Grace. Before Finn can jump off to land it though, Dolph returns from the apron side, and pushes Finn off the turnbuckle into the ring, which sets him up for a devastating mid-air RKO outta nowhere! Dolph makes his way into the ring quickly and goes for the Famouser as Orton gets up but Orton scouts him well, dodges the move and plants Ziggler with an RKO. Orton covers Dolph for the One . . . Two . . . Three!

    Winner
    Randy Orton (c)

    Smackdown Live
    Episode #927
    May 23rd, 2017


    Smackdown Live begins with Shane McMahon standing in the middle of the ring, which has ladders set around them. He first commends the Superstars on an excellent Backlash but states that time moves fast on the Land of Opportunity, because in four weeks time Smackdown Live will present Money in the Bank! Shane proudly boasts that he has several ground-breaking plans for Money in the Bank, and that he's going to go by them one by one. Firstly, the Smackdown Live Money in the Bank will feature six of the most promising superstars, who'll qualify for the bout in one of six qualifying matches, the last one being a last chance over-the-top rope battle royal open to just about anyone. However, that isn't the major news concerning this match, Shane states that Smackdown Live is the Land of Opportunity and Money in the Bank is the match of Opportunity. So in that spirit, there is one condition for competing in the Money in the Bank this year, you can not have won a World Championship here in the WWE! This year's Money in the Bank will be for those who are so close to breaking the glass ceiling above them. After a pause, Shane says that isn't the biggest news about Money in the Bank though. Last week he was on the phone with Raw GM Kurt Angle, because Shane had an idea that needed Angle's involvement to fully commit to. However, in order of Angle to agree to that plan, Shane had to fulfill one condition. That condition was for Raw to have a Money in the Bank match, so come Money in the Bank, there will both a Smackdown Live and a Raw Money in the Bank ladder match. Shane will let Angle worry about that, for him what matters most is hanging above. At this moment, three Money in the Bank briefcases are lowered down until Shane can grab them. A blue one, which Shane states as the Smackdown Live one; a red one, the Raw one; and a white one. Shane unhooks the white one and proudly raises it as the historic first ever Women's Money in the Bank ladder match, an eight woman inter-promotional match, where the winner will gain the right to cash in on the Women's Champions at any time of their choosing. Shane states that Angle will determine his half later but we're going to decide the qualifiers tonight! First, he announces that Becky Lynch, for her inspirational performance at Backlash has been granted a spot in the match. For the other three spots, that'll be determined tonight in a fatal four way pitting Sasha Banks, Natalya, Mickie James, and Carmella against each-other. The winner of that match will earn a match against Asuka at Money in the Bank for the Women's Championship, while the other three will be inserted into the match alongside Becky Lynch.

    Smackdown Live returns with United States Champion Kevin Owens with a mic in hand. Owens talks about beating AJ Styles last night at Backlash, about how he proved what happens when you loud mouth boast about how phenomenal you are while trying to unjustly take what's not yours, like a typical American. When you do that to Kevin Owens, you don't just lose the match, you lose months off your career. He says after Sunday, Smackdown Live is no longer the house that homes AJ Styles, he's not here today and he may never come back. Now that AJ Styles is off recovering in some hospital, Owens can go back to being The Face of America. One of the things KO never got to do with Shane constantly making him defend his championship against the same people like Mojo Rawley, an Open Challenge for his United States Championship from anyone in Toledo, Ohio, here tonight! A local competitor answer the call, and Kevin Owens calls for a referee.

    United States Championship: Singles match ~ Kevin Owens (c) defeats local talent Woodruff Adams via Pop-up Powerbomb at 1:21.

    Backstage we see Cesaro preparing for his upcoming Qualifier match. Sheamus comes in and offers Cesaro good luck. Sheamus takes the time to add in a not so humble brag about how he can't even compete because he's already a four time world champion, which he turns into a compliment saying that means "nobody will be able to beat ya Cesaro". Sheamus goes back to bragging, stating that once Cesaro wins his qualifier, having won a Money in the Bank match himself, Sheamus can give him advice and train him for the Money in the Bank match itself. Cesaro passes on Sheamus' offer, stating he doesn't need any advice from him on how to win. After the friendly bickering is over, Sheamus tells Cesaro that after he wins that briefcase, it's time to go after The Usos again. They shake on it and Cesaro leaves for his match.

    Money in the Bank Qualifier: Singles match ~ Cesaro defeats Aiden English via a Pop-up European Uppercut at 6:39.

    Smackdown Live returns with both a note that Women's Champion Asuka will be in action next week, and another hype package for The New Day.

    Money in the Bank Qualifier: Singles match ~ Mojo Rawley defeats Apollo Crews via a Running Corner Forearm Smash at 6:12. Prior to the match, Apollo Crews got on the microphone and openly derided the decision for his opponent. Stating he already beat Mojo Sunday, why does he have to do it again? The match is just a formality though since Apollo claims he could be Mojo on "Apollo Crews Control", Apollo does a little self-laugh while nudging the ref on the arm in self congratulatory fashion. During the match, Crews was taking Mojo lightly. Like at the finish, after knocking him down with an Enzuigiri, Crews jumped on the second rope in and boasted to the fans. He then drops down to the floor, did a self laugh smirk and turned around, that's when he got blasted from the side by Mojo's winning blow.

    We get another Lars Sullivan promo before we see Shane McMahon backstage, being interrupted by an upset Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler chides Shane McMahon's decision to make the Smackdown Live Money in the Bank match only available to those who were never World Champion. He says he could beat anyone that qualifies and it's obvious that Shane McMahon just has a vendetta against Ziggler. Not only did he add Finn Balor into his guaranteed one-on-one bout with Randy Orton at Backlash, now he removed any chance Dolph had to face for the Championship. Shane tells Dolph he's sorry that he feels that way, but the MITB was made that way to give out opportunity to those who haven't yet reached the heights that Ziggler already has in his illustrious career, and besides, Shane has a big match planned for Dolph at Money in the Bank. Ziggler questions if it's his rightful one-on-one against Orton, Shane denies, stating that Dolph will be going up against Lars Sullivan. Dolph responds with a "Who?" and Shane points to behind him. Ziggler turns around and his jaw drops as he sees the behemoth of Lars Sullivan. Lars extends his massive hands to Dolph Ziggler and says "Hi, my name is Lars Sullivan". Dolph hesitantly gives Lars his hand, only doing so after a few awkward seconds and an intense staredown from Lars. Once Dolph takes his hand, Lars powerful grip brings Dolph down to one knee, "And you'll never forget it, I promise you that". He lets go and storms out, leaving Dolph to tend to his hand.

    Money in the Bank Qualifier: Singles match ~ Curt Hakwins defeats Viktor, with Konnor, via Hangman's Facebuster, which he now dubs The Fact Check, at 7:04.

    Tag Team match ~ Enzo Amore & Big Cass defeats The Usos via G-DT on Jey Uso at 9:26. During the match, to the surprise of everyone involved, James Ellsworth made his way to ringside during the match. At the finish when Enzo hit the G-DT, Jey managed to roll close enough to the ropes in order to place his foots on the rope, but Ellsworth knocked it off before the ref saw it. After the match, it seemed like Jimmy was going to go after Ellsworth but Big Cass hit him with a Running Big Boot to prevent that. The three celebrate in the ring, before Carmella come out. To perhaps the surprise of the Universe, Carmella ends up high-fiving both Enzo & Cass as they make their way to the back and she prepares for hers.

    Smackdown Women's Championship #1 Contenders (Winner) & Money in the Bank Qualifier (Losers): Fatal Four Way match ~ Carmella defeats Sasha Banks, in a match also involving Mickie James and Natalya, via a school-girl roll-up after a distraction from James Ellsworth at 14:15. Near the end of the match, Sasha took Mickie James out with a Diving Meteroa from the inside of the ring to the outside. At the finish of the match, Natayla was up and almost broke up the winning fall, but stopped herself and displayed a knowing smirk, letting Carmella win.

    WWE Champion Randy Orton comes out and immediately addresses the critics, all the people that thought he might've been afraid of Finn Balor, the people who claimed that he couldn't have beaten Finn Balor. That somehow, him and his dumb Balor Club crap was better than a thirteen time World Heavyweight Champion. He silenced all the critics last night when he beat Finn Balor and Dolph Ziggler to yet again retain the WWE Championship at Backlash. Finn Balor makes his way out to the ring and tells Randy that they both took some pretty tough blows last Sunday but Finn distinctly remembers that he wasn't pinned, Dolph was. Orton responds yelling that those are the rules of the triple threat, and you don't get a Championship rematch just because you can't succeed in those conditions. His aggression simmers down a bit as he goes on to say that had he pinned Finn after that RKO the match would've been over. It's clear to anyone who watched the match that Orton was the true star of the three, and that on his own Finn couldn't even last fifteen minutes with the Champ, let alone beat him. Balor tells Orton that he accepts that challenge, and calls a ref out. Orton questions what he's doing, and when the ref gets in the ring, Randy shouts at him to not dare ringing the bell until Balor explains. Which Finn does, he says it's like Orton said, if Finn can't be Orton within fifteen minutes he doesn't deserve to be Champion. So, if Balor can survive against Orton for fifteen minutes or even beat Orton him in that time, then at Money in the Bank, he'll get the one-on-one shot he earned his first night on Smackdown Live. If Orton can beat Balor within those fifteen minutes like he claimed, then Finn will never again challenge for the WWE Championship for as long as Randy holds the title. Finn tells Orton that "unless all your talk is just false bravado from a coward, deal?". He extends his hand for a shake but Orton slaps it away, "Deal!"

    Last Shot WWE Championship #1 Contender's 15 Minutes of Fame: Singles match ~ Finn Balor defeats Randy Orton via school-boy roll-up RKO reversal at 0:13. After the match, Finn isn't able to celebrate, as Orton pounces on him immediately, knocking him outside the ring. In a fit of rage, he hits Finn with a devastating backdrop on the announce table. Orton continues his assault around the ring, bouncing his head off the steps, and eventually hitting a spike DDT with Balor hanging from the barricade. Orton then goes to the Steel Steps, in Punt Kick position. Orton stops himself right before he plants Finn with a Punt Kick, instead lifting him up and hitting him with an RKO on the outside. Orton then grabs his Championship, grabs Finn's head, and shouts at him that he will never be better than Orton, and will never be WWE Champion. Smackdown Live goes to a close as the medical staff come down and WWE Champion Randy Orton walks to the back with his Championship slinged across his shoulder.

    Let’s check out this SDL you got here, Evangelistical.

    First thing’s first, your format is pretty solid. If I were to nitpick ONE thing, it’s just simply to downsize that big paragraph/wall of text you got there. Breaking it up into separate, smaller paragraphs is a bit easier on the eyes, but nevertheless, that’s the only gripe here.

    Anyways, on to the show. Dug Shane’s standard, post-Backlash promo. I REALLY like the fact that you’re centering MITB around guys who haven’t ever been in that position before. One of the many reasons that MITB succeeded for the first few years of its existence was the fact that guys who hadn’t been world champions before (Edge, RVD, Mr. Kennedy, Punk, to a lesser degree Swagger, Bryan, Dolph, etc.) whereas now the fields are more star-studded featuring more World Champs and all that. So good on you for taking that route. It makes sense given the #LandOfOpportunity gimmick that SDL has. I also like the wrinkle that he had to negotiate with Angle and have a Raw MITB match. Wonder if there’ll be sabotage by someone down the line to lead to an interpromotional feud at S’Slam? Would be cool.

    The Women’s MITB match should be fun, and compounded by the fact that it’ll be interpromotional (A route that I think they really should’ve taken IRL). Becky being granted the spot makes sense and I imagine that someone is going to have it out for her because of that. Good tweak to have the four ladies gun for the title match against Asuka while the losers just land in the MITB match.

    LOL at Owens’ promo. Just terrific. Him squashing the heck out of this guy works well and keeps him looking strong coming out of Backlash.

    Subtle, subtle hints at a possible breakup of Sheasaro… I’m hoping it’s just a tease and nothing more as I really like them as a tag team, but we’ll see how this plays out. Not surprised that Cesaro got the dub. He might wind up being the favorite here.

    Crews being a whiner here suits him, and it’s nice, in that way, to see him get shmacked after taking Mojo lightly. I’m in a minority that actually favors Mojo a bit so hopefully he doesn’t look like a chump going forward in the build toward the match.

    Dolph facing Lars Sullivan is a bit interesting, to be sure. Can’t really say too much about it but I can’t stand Dolph so, quite frankly, I hope Lars beats the tar out of him. Looking forward to seeing how this develops.

    Hawkins, alright. Sure. I don’t mind it.

    Ellsworth… LMAOOOOOOOO. What a dweeb. Read through the dynamic you have here with Carm, Ellsworth, and Enzo and Cass, and I have to say there’s definitely a nice level of intrigue here. Ellsworth is absolutely Carm’s puppet and it definitely seems like she doesn’t want to let him loose cause he does so much for her, but she’s obviously embarrassed to her boys. Wondering where she’s going to pivot.

    Smart play by Nattie, in a way, to avoid Asuka and make the much smaller Carmella have to get the title fight against Asuka. A nice touch.

    Alright, standard stuff from Orton here, and the match with Finn seemed fine. I certainly hope that the 0:13 is for how much time was left and not how long the actual match was, lol. A 13-second match just seems ridiculous, but I’m going to assume that since it’s a 15 Mins of Fame match, that that’s what you were going for. A good ending with Orton teasing the punt. I expect this to be a highlight at MITB when they face off, 1 on 1.

    Alright, Evangelistical. I’ve lurked for a little while but you did quite well here with this episode of SDL. There’s a lot to like about what’s coming out of this brand as we move toward MITB, although I wonder if the depth is going to burn you a bit when it comes to the lack of stars in the MITB match with the never-been-a-champ stipulation. My hope, personally, is that you dip into the tag scene because there are certainly a lot of guys (like from The New Day, perhaps or Dash and Dawson) that you can use at your disposal there, and Luke Harper or Erick Rowan too. Looking forward to the next ep of SDL, and I’ll come back for Tigerblood’s Raw, too.

    RAW

    Episode #1253
    May 29th, 2017

    RAW kicks off with GM Kurt Angle. He announces that after consoling with Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon, and Smackdown General Manager that in three weeks at Money In The Bank, RAW will be represented with two matches. First, for the women, It will be the first ever Women's Money in the Bank as four of RAW's finest will face four of SD's finest in an 8 women MITB Ladder Match. The four women representing RAW in that ladder match will be Nia Jax, Charlotte Flair, Naomi, and the loser of the Alexa Bliss/Ember Moon match this Sunday. he also announces that there will be an 8 man RAW Money In The Bank match, the participants in that match will be Seth Rollins, The Miz, Dean Ambrose, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt, Shinsuke Nakamura, and R-Truth. Samoa Joe makes his way out to the ring and says that it doesn't even matter if Angle has a MITB match, because once Joe wins the title this Sunday, there will be no one taking the title from him. So the match is completely irrelevant. Joe then proceeds to say that he shouldn't even have to wait for this Sunday, and that he should be able to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Title. Angle agrees, saying that if Samoa Joe can defeat Roman's "newest friends", Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in a gauntlet match, then he will get his match against Reigns tonight.

    Singles match ~ Sami Zayn defeats Jinder Mahal via Helluva Kick at 7:18. Post match Sami Zayn calls out The Miz, Miz comes out with Maryse and the Masked Man. Zayn proposes that at Extreme Rules, if Sami defeats Miz for the Intercontinental Championship, Miz will reveal who masked man is. But if Zayn loses, then he will no longer appear on RAW as long as Miz is champion. Miz then proceeds to say that because this is Miz's Never Ending Intercontinental Championship Tour, that Sami will be off tv for a long time. Both men accept the terms.

    Charlotte is backstage with Charly Caruso. Charly asks Charlotte how she feels about being in the first Women's Money In The Bank match in three weeks. Charlotte tells Charly that she has been here to make history since day one. She was the first woman to main event RAW in the New Era, She was the first Women to Main Event a Pay-Per-View, in the first ever Women's Hell In A Cell. She goes on to say that in three weeks at MITB, she will be the first ever woman to become Ms. Money In The Bank. Naomi then shows up behind Charlotte mimicking a fake slow clap. She congratulates Charlotte for all her accomplishments, then reminds her that she wouldn't have done any of it if she wasn't riding Sasha Bank's coattails. Naomi tells Charlotte that the only history that she will be making at MITB is when she loses to Naomi for two consecutive PPVs.

    Triple Threat match ~ Jeff Hardy, with Matt Hardy, defeats Luke Gallows, with Karl Anderson, in a match also involving Jason Jordan, with Chad Gable, via Whisper In The Wind/Swanton Bomb Combo on Gallows at 14:36. Post match, we see another promo saying RAW is getting even closer to becoming GLORIOUS!

    Backstage, Breezango get a note explaining to them that at Extreme Rules, they will finally realize what happened to Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.

    Singles match ~ Baron Corbin defeats Goldust via End Of Days at 11:17. Post match, Shinsuke Nakamura connects with a Kinshasa from out of nowhere.

    Neville makes his way out to the ring. He cuts a promo on his plethora of opponents at Extreme Rules. He states that normally, he'd complain that defending his title against nine other men isn't fair and that RAW GM Kurt Angle has something against him, but in this match he got the luck of the draw. He is the number ten entrant, so all he has to do is let the other nine men in the match kill each other, the when it's time for him to come out, he just has to eliminate the scraps and his reign as King of the Cruiserweights will live on forever. Neville then heads to the commentary table for the upcoming match.

    Five-on-Four Handicap match ~ Austin Aries, Jack Gallagher, Kalisto, Cedric Alexander, and TJP defeats Noam Dar, Tony Nese, Brian Kendrick, and Akira Tozawa via Solida Del Sol on Tony Nese at 16:05. Post match all nine men brawl in the ring. During the chaos, Neville is seen standing at ringside holding his title and laughing maniacally.

    Mike Rome interviews the team formally known as The Shield backstage. Roman starts by telling him that this is not a reunion, this is a one time thing. Seth Rollins mentions that they have reunited temporarily to defeat a common enemy in Samoa Joe. Dean Ambrose says that tonight, Joe is going to feel the wrath of three brothers in arms, and that he's going to wish he never stepped foot in a WWE ring. Ambrose goes put his fist in for a triple fist bump, but both men shake their heads and Rollins mutters "Dude, no." before Roman and Seth walk away leaving Dean confused.

    Six Woman Tag Team match ~ Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, and Naomi defeats Ember Moon, Alicia Fox, and Charlotte Flair via Twisted Bliss on Alicia Fox at 18:38.

    Gauntlet Match I: Singles match ~ Samoa Joe defeats Dean Ambrose via Coquina Clutch at 16:59.

    Gauntlet Match II: Singles match ~ Samoa Joe defeats Seth Rollins when Bray Wyatt appeared and hit the Sister Abigail on Rollins when the ref was down at 11:49, 28:48 total.

    Universal Championship: Gauntlet Match III: Singles match ~ Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns goes to a no contest at 3:48, 32:36 total, when Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose attack Joe from behind. Post match, Joe takes Ambrose and Rollins out with the Muscle Buster and lays out Reigns with a Samoan Drop through a table. Joe poses with the Universal Championship to close out RAW.

    This is something I've been thinking about. Maybe not separate paragraphs, but maybe at least bolding the names during promo segments like I do for matches. Not sure. I've already got the next two weeks (counting this one), written so I think I'll try changing things up post MITB. Or maybe altered the code a bit before posting. I don't know.

    Alright, standard stuff from Orton here, and the match with Finn seemed fine. I certainly hope that the 0:13 is for how much time was left and not how long the actual match was, lol.

    Sooooo about that, I meant 13 seconds, lol. My idea here was that Orton just wanted to put Finn behind him as quickly as possible, so he immediately went for an RKO but Finn scouted that with the roll-up reversal, and we get the shock quick win that way. I know it kinda makes Orton look like a goober which is why is partially why I had the post-match beatdown, and another reason for the short time was to keep the match fresh for the PPV.

    Alright, Evangelistical. I’ve lurked for a little while but you did quite well here with this episode of SDL. There’s a lot to like about what’s coming out of this brand as we move toward MITB, although I wonder if the depth is going to burn you a bit when it comes to the lack of stars in the MITB match with the never-been-a-champ stipulation.

Looking forward to the next ep of SDL, and I’ll come back for Tigerblood’s Raw, too.
    Not to going to spoil any of my plans but this did make me realize I should probably list who's currently inactive on the roster page. As a side note, I really appreciate the feedback, and considering yours is one of the BTB's I've wanted to get into, this seems like a good time to ask, is SummerSlam a good starting point. I know from lurking that a good amount of the posts in that thread are from predictions and the such, but 16 pages is a pretty daunting backlog.

    Smackdown Live
    Episode #928
    May 30th, 2017


    Smackdown Live begins with the dynamic duo of Enzo Amore & Big Cass. The two go over their typical routine before sliding into some more targeted assaults to the Usos. Building themselves up as the next contenders for the Championship before spelling out that one word to describe The Usos, swaft. The Usos come out on the ramp with that tag team gold and begin to spit fire. They talk about how Enzo & Cass don't seem to understand what's soft and what's not, Jimmy begins listing off examples, with Jey adding a "Now that's soft" after each one. Acting like the number one contender's without winning a contender's match (Now that's soft), relying on a chinless fool to win matches (Now that's soft), getting freaky with a box of KFC (Now that's soft), being a tag team for four years now and not winning the gold yet (Now that's soft). They then switch roles, with Jimmy listing off examples and Jey adding punctuating. Smackdown Tag Team Champions (That ain't soft), three time tag team champions (That ain't soft), Accepting challenges from all-comers even wannabe G's like them (That ain't soft). At this point, the two start telling Enzo & Cass that they made their bed, but now they ain't going to sleep with all the goosebumps they'd be feeling, it ain't paranoia, it's the Usos! As The Usos music plays and the make their exit, the commentators hype up their Tag Team Title match at Money in the Bank that The Usos just made with Enzo & Cass, before seguing into the debut of The New Day on Smackdown Live, coming soon.

    Money in the Bank Qualifier: Singles match ~ Luke Harper defeats Konnor, with Viktor, via Discus Lariat at 7:28.

    Shane McMahon is in his office, getting interrupted by Dolph Ziggler once again. This time, Dolph is complaining about Randy Orton giving Finn Balor yet another chance at the title. He lost that triple threat just like Dolph, it isn't fair to just hand Finn with another opportunity. Shane makes it clear that he didn't, Randy did and Finn still earned it with a match. Besides, Dolph already has an opponent for Money in the Bank, Lars Sullivan. Dolph says nobody cares about that match, he deserves at least an opportunity at a second chance. Same stipulation as Finn, he can do it. Shane McMahon says he's feeling generous tonight so why not, Dolph has his match. As Dolph turns to leave, he runs into the monstrous Lars Sullivan. Dolph tells Lars that's sorry, he'd love to face Lars Sullivan but it's a shot at the WWE Championship, "You understand".

    Kevin Owens is in the middle of the ring, proudly proclaiming himself as the Face of America once again, and stating that after his successful Championship defense last week in his open challenge, he's going to do it again. The same rules as last time apply, if you're from Georgia, come out now and get your one shot at glory! Much to Kevin Owens surprise and horror, AJ Styles music blast over the PA system. Yet AJ Styles never shows, and it doesn't take long for Owens' face to give away that it was all a ruse. KO laughs at all in attendance, stating that it could never be AJ Styles, because KO took him out of commission at Backlash. Also, because he's from Gainesville, and the real US Open Challenge is just for those from right here, in Atlanta, Georgia! Owens then welcomes his real challenger, and to his surprise Curt Hawkins comes out. Hawkins criticizes Owens 'Open Challenge', telling him that everyone here knows Owens has a pre-selected easy win for this challenge, and that he needs to face the Facts, he can't win against a legitimate opponent. Kevin then questions Hawkins implication that he is a legitimate competitor, stating that Hawkins is a nobody. Hawkins says then let's have a match and see what happens. Owens accepts.

    United States Championship: Singles match ~ Curt Hawkins defeats Kevin Owens via Fact Check (Hangman's Facebuster) at 0:16. The second the bell rang, AJ Styles theme blasted on the PA system, causing Owens to turn his attention to the ramp, and Hawkins to get a sneak Fact Check on him. After the match, Hawkins celebrates with the United States Championship for a few seconds before KO beats him up from behind. Owens then grabs the United States Championship and a microphone, and begins berating the ref. He argues that this match wasn't for the United States Championship, Hawkins doesn't qualify for the Open challenge and most importantly, Hawkins wasn't accepting Owens offer for a Championship match, Owens was accepting Hawkins challenge for a match. Curt never mentioned the title when he asked KO to fight. After much deliberation, the referee sides with Owens, having the announcer clarify that the match was a non-title bout, so despite winning the match, Hawkins is not the United States Champion. Kevin Owens finishes the rest, "And still Face of America and United States Champion, Kevin Owens!"

    Tag Team match ~ Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks vs. Mickie James and Natalya goes to a no contest at 4:00 when Nia Jax comes out and clotheslines both legal participants, Sasha & Mickie. Prior to the attack, Nia knocked Lynch off the apron from behind with a powerbomb, though the ref didn't see her do it. When they heard the impact though, all those involved turned to see Nia Jax entering the ring. Natalya bounces off the apron and runs around the ring to the back. She looks at the downed Becky, and watches as Nia continue to attack both Sasha & Mickie. She plants both with a Samoan Drop followed by a Leg Drop to both other Money in the Bank participants. Nia stands dominate as Natalya heads to the back with a smirk on her face.

    Backstage Rhyno is seen preparing for his upcoming qualifier match. Heath Slater asks him how he's feeling, considering he's facing Drew McIntyre. Rhyno tells Slater that he's been doing this for over two decades, and has never once won the World Championship over here. It doesn't matter who he's up against, this may be his last chance to ever reach the top of the mountain, and he won't let anybody stop him.

    Money in the Bank Qualifier: Singles match ~ Drew McIntyre defeats Rhyno, with Heath Slater, via Future Shock at 10:48. After the match, Heath Slater goes to help Rhyno up but Rhyno isn't having any of it. Pushing him off and storming to the back on his own.

    Last Shot WWE Championship #1 Contender's 15 Minutes of Fame: Singles match ~ Randy Orton defeats Dolph Ziggler via school-boy roll-up at 3:40. The finish of the match came about when Lars Sullivan made his way down the ring, distracting Dolph just enough for Orton to get the win. Lars enters the ring and Orton rolls out, watching Dolph panic a bit. Ziggler can be heard stating "We're cool, right?" while extending a hand to Lars. Lars accepts but he doesn't let go, instead he pulls Ziggler forward and blasts him with a clothesline. He pummels Dolph Ziggler, while Orton watches pleased, until Finn Balor, who was on commentary, throws Orton into the ring from behind. Orton looks frustrated at Finn and is about to charge outside after him, when Lars places his gigantic hand on Orton's shoulder. After a momentary pause to let Orton sink in the situation, Lars blasts Orton from behind, leaving both Dolph & Orton down in the ring as Sullivan stands dominate.

    Singles match ~ Asuka defeats local talent Hayley Moore via Asuka Lock at 0:44. Following the match, Carmella who was won on commentary until Asuka locked the Asuka Lock in, rushed in the ring and blasted Asuka in the back of the head with the Smackdown Women's Championship. She plants it down next to Asuka and tells her that her reign of dominance is coming to a close. James Ellsworth proudly stands by Carmella and raises her hand for the WWE Universe to soak up, but little do they know, Asuka has already returned to her feet, and her scary excited expression spells doom when they turn around. Carmella turns around first and pushes Ellsworth in the way as Asuka knocks James down with a running hip attack, and Carmella rushes out of the ring. Asuka taunts Carmella by imitating her moon walk as Ellsworth rolls out of the ring and back to Carmella.

    Smackdown Live is set to start it's Main Event, a multi-man over the top rope battle royal featuring several wrestlers who never won world championships vying for the final spot in the Smackdown Money in the Bank match in only two weeks. Before the bell could ring though, The New Day make their Smackdown debut! The trio come down and introduce themselves to the Smackdown Live audience before stating that they couldn't help but notice that this battle royal are missing some people. The do their whole "Who" bit before revealing the answer is The New Day themselves. The three enter the ring and the match begins.

    Money in the Bank Qualifier: Over-the-Top Rope Battle Royal ~ The match begins with Aiden English, Apollo Crews, Big E, Erick Rowan, Heath Slater, James Ellsworth, Kofi Kingston, Konnor, Rhyno, Viktor, and Xavier Woods. Apollo Crews eliminates James Ellsworth at 0:12. Erick Rowan eliminates Aiden English at 2:47. Erick Rowan eliminates Viktor at 3:35. The New Day eliminates Erick Rowan at 4:16. Big E eliminates Konnor via a Spear through the second rope at 6:53. Big E is currently out of the match but is not eliminated. Heath Slater & Rhyno eliminates Xavier Woods at 7:50. Rhyno eliminates Heath Slater at 7:56. Rhyno almost eliminates Kofi Kingston at 8:36 but Big E catches him and puts him back in the ring, returning to the match himself. Apollo Crews eliminates Kofi Kingston at 9:38. Big E eliminates Rhyno at 12:36. Big E last eliminates Apollo Crews at 17:04 to win the Battle Royal. Following the match, Kofi and Xavier return to the ring to hoist Big E up on their shoulders in celebration of Big E's victory.

    RAW

    Episode #1254

    RAW kicks off with RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax. Alexa cuts a promo on how last night she retained her title against Ember Moon and she really solidified her role as greatest RAW Women's Championship of all time. Nia asks Alexa if she's scared about somebody winning the first ever Miss Money In The Bank in two weeks and them possibly taking the Title from her. She laughs and mentions that no matter what happens at Money In the Bank, there's no one on the RAW or Smackdown Live roster that can touch her. Sasha Banks music hits as her and Becky Lynch make their way out to take out the Women's Champ and her bodyguard. The four brawl for a while as Charlotte makes her way to the ring to make the save for the Smackdown Women. Former SD Live Women's Champion Naomi, makes her way out to even the odds for Alexa and Nia, but here comes Bayley to join her other Horsewoman in combat. Eventually, Kurt Angle sends referees and security out to break up the brawl, and then makes the main event for the evening, The Four Horsewoman vs. Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, and Naomi in a 4-on-3 handicap match. The commentators note that it's a handicap match in name only, saying Nia is worth at least two on her own.

    Singles match ~ Seth Rollins defeats Jinder Mahal via Falcon Arrow at 6:05. Post match, the lights go out, and when the lights come back on, Bray Wyatt is in the ring. He and Rollins brawl, until Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring to save Rollins. The lights go one more time and Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas are in the ring to back up Wyatt. The Wyatt's lay out Ambrose and Rollins before we roll into a commercial.

    Bobby Roode is in the ring with Maryse and The Miz. Roode cuts a promo about how ever since last night everybody has been asking him "Why?" "Why did he align with The Miz?" Roode says that when he looks at Miz and Maryse he sees winners. That's what WWE is lacking, Winners. He says that last night Sami Zayn may have won the Intercontinental Championship, but at the end of the night, everyone isn't talking about that. They're talking about Bobby Roode and The Miz. Miz grabs the Mic and says that even though he lost the Intercontinental Title last night, the point is now that teaming with Roode has made him more relevant than he was with the title around his waist, and it's only a matter of time before the title is back where it belongs. Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn makes his way out to the ring to a huge ovation. He talks about how good it feels to champion, how he did this for the fans as much as himself. Miz cuts him off telling him that he shouldn't get to used to holding that title because next week, he's invoking his rematch clause. Sami accepts.

    Universal Champion Roman Reigns is backstage with Charly Caruso. Charly asks him now that he's defeated Samoa Joe, what's next? Roman announces that it doesn't matter what's next, because he has solidified himself as the greatest. And he is going to continue to be the greatest. He announces that no matter who Kurt Angle throws in his path next, he will destroy them too. This is Roman's yard and he says that we're all just lucky enough to be living in it.

    Raw Tag Team Championship #1 Contender's Elimination Chase: Fatal Four Way match ~ The Club defeats American Alpha, in a match also featuring Breezango, and The New Wyatt Family (Bo Dallas & Curis Axel), via Magic Killer on Jason Jordan at 19:18. Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy were on commentary during the match and Post match, The Club chased them away to the back.

    Mike Rome is seen backstage with Bayley, preparing for her main event match. Mike Rome asks Bayley about the main event but more specifically, why did she even get involved out there early. The numbers were even and she's not even in the first Women's Money in the Bank ladder match. It's from the last point that Bayley springboards her answers. She says it feels like this is starting to become the story of her career. She was the last member of the Horsewoman to be called up to the main roster, she was the only one not involved in the triple threat at WrestleMania to determine the first ever Raw Women's Championship, and she was the last one to win a Championship on the main roster. She sure Kurt Angle had his reasons for leaving her out, and it stinks, but I guess it's just par for the course. But you know what, Bayley affirms she's not letting it get her down. Because she may have had to play catch up but by did she ever catch up. She was Raw Women's Champion for 76 days. She ended Charlotte's PPV streak to keep that Championship. And most importantly, she walked into WrestleMania 33 with the Championship and walked out of the Ultimate Thrill Ride with the Championship. So yeah, it hurts to be left out of such a historic moment like the first Women's Money in the Bank match but the keyword there is first. There's always next year, and when she does get in one, she's going to try everything she can to win. As for why she got involved, because she's friends with Sasha and Becky, and even though she's had her problems with Charlotte recently, she still respects her a lot and wasn't going to watch as they got beaten down. Besides, she still has unfinished business with Alexa Bliss, after all, she still never properly got her re-match. She shouldn't have lost her chance just because Nia beat her, and tonight, she's going to help her friends and remind Alexa Bliss and Kurt Angle, that she still belongs in the title picture.

    Cruiserweight Champion Neville is in the ring, still feeling the beat down from last night. He laughs at the fact that it took nine men last night to even attempt to take him down. He says that last night just proved that he was the King of the Cruiserweights. Cedric Alexander makes his way out to the ring and tells Neville that he's delusional. He says that last night, he was left laying on his back, while nine other men we're standing above him. Neville barks back that he could take Alexander or any of the nine other Cruiserweights down at anytime. Alexander tells him to put his money where his mouth is and prove it t him by putting the Cruiserweight Title on the line at WWE Great Balls of Fire. Neville accepts, before the other nine Cruiserweights attack Neville from behind. Laying him out.

    Singles match ~ Bobby Roode, with The Miz and Maryse, defeats Tye Dillinger via Glorious DDT at 10:27. Post match, Sami Zayn makes his way out to ringside, but is taken out with a Skull Crushing Finale on the concrete by The Miz. Miz poses with the Intercontinental Championship as he, Maryse, and Bobby Roode make their way out of the arena.

    Next week we will get a medical update on the status of Samoa Joe. Also announced for next week, Roman Reigns will go on one on with Bray Wyatt.

    Baron Corbin cuts a promo about how when he was on Smackdown Live, he was held back. But in two weeks, at Money In The Bank, Corbin will finally reach his true potential when he wins The Money In The Bank briefcase. He announces that he's already destroyed Shinsuke Nakamura and he might as well not even show up at MITB, because if they run into each other again, Shinsuke is going to wish he was back in New Japan, or whatever wannabe Indy promotion he came from. He says that R Truth never even shows up on RAW, so how he got into the match is laughable at best. He says that Miz is too busy tucking and running behind his wife and a wannabe insurance policy to even be a viable threat in the match. He mentions that Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose are to busy trying to reform an old relationship to even notice they're in Money In The Bank, and he's not talking about just being "good friends". Bray Wyatt, and his "Mr Creepy" shtick are the least of his problems, and Sami Zayn, just like his title win are a fluke and there's no way the guy even makes it anywhere close to the briefcase in the match. So everybody better get used to this face, because in two weeks, it'll be the one with the guaranteed title shot.

    Four-on-Three Handicap match ~ The Four Horsewoman vs. Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, and Naomi goes to a no-contest at 35:10 when the match devolved into an all-out brawl from both sides after one too near falls caused Nia to snap. The brawl begin when Charlotte kicked out of Nia's Leg Drop, she didn't take this in stride, and started pummeling Charlotte so much that the ref begin to tell her to get off right before Bayley knocks Nia off with a dropkick to the side of the face. She checks on Charlotte before Nia pounces back and knocks down Bayley. The ref begins to try and get Jax off Bayley but again this time Sasha Banks knocks Nia off with a clothesline. This time though,Becky Lynch follows up immediately and locks in the Dis-Arm-Her on Nia. The ref now changes focus trying to get Becky off Nia and back to the corner, but it doesn't take long for Naomi to force Becky to relinquish the hold with a Rear View. Sasha Banks then knocks down Naomi but Alexa sneaks in and plants Sasha with a snap DDT but as she was getting up Charlotte nailed her with a Natural Selection. At this point the action started to become to much to follow, and the ref ended the match as nobody was leaving the ring. The brawl however continued on. The highlights all happened towards the end. Becky was taking out by Nia Jax via a power-bomb through the announce table. Sasha ten took out Nia Jax with a diving meteora to the outside of the ring, though this took Sasha out of commission too. Charlotte and Bayley team against Bliss and Naomi before Charlotte takes out Naomi with a Natural Selection. Alexa then quickly nailed Charlotte with a Snap DDT, having previously thrown Bayley shoulder first into the corner turnbuckle. Alexa Bliss poses as she realizes that she's the only one standing after the chaos, before noticing Bayley's placement. Bliss climbs the top rope to hit the Twisted Bliss but to her surprise, Bayley meets her up there and plants her with a Bayley-to-Belly Suplex off the top. Bayley isn't able to get up following the move either though. Raw comes to end with all seven women laid out in and around the ring.

    Re: WWE: Another Passage [by Evangelestial & Tigerblood]

    Smackdown Live
    Episode #929
    June 6th, 2017


    Smackdown Live kicks off with The New Day! The trio welcome the audience and Smackdown Live, to the power of positivity. They talk with their hips about being the longest WWE Tag Team Champions and that with the Superstar Shakeup, it was time for a New Day Shakeup. Because believe it or not but The New Day have never been the World Champion before, but thanks to Big E, that will all be changing very soon. Kofi takes the mic, and says that at Money in the Bank, Big E will climb, and climb, and climb while the other two make climb gestures. Eventually Big E switches to hype talk mode, exhaling that he'd would climb until he reaches the top and grab the brass ring, the key to the future. Xavier's turn, stating the key that leads to Big E, to The New Day, becoming the W . . . W . . . E World Heavyweight Champion! All the time with the trio's signature hip dance. They continue stating that The Fabulous Freebirds left an indelible mark on sports entertainment, with the Freebird rule. Which allows teams like yours truly, to hold the tag belts between all three men instead of the traditional two. And now, The New Day plans to add a new rule, another indelible mark even greater than their Tag Team reign, yes it's true. The New Day rule! Which will allow all members of a team, to hold any World Heavyweight Championship at the same time instead of the traditional one. And this New Day rule will happen because New Day Rocks, New Day Rocks, New Day Rocks! Their signature phrase is interrupted by Drew McIntyre. He grabs a mic and tells them all that when he joined Smackdown Live, he was under the belief that he wouldn't have to deal with the most annoying trio in the WWE. He derides their New Day Rule, stating that it's pathetic how parasitic Kofi & Xavier are. Kofi never could win the big one, and Xavier would never even giving a shot, so now that Big E earns one they can't help but jump for joy at the thought of having some singles success. He doesn't care about those two though, the only member of The New Day that matters is Big E. He tells Big E that at Money in the Bank, Drew McIntyre is winning, not him. Cesaro comes out. He prefaces his comment by saying he can't believe he's saying this, but he agrees with Drew. He tells Big E that you don't see Sheamus out here with him. Because Cesaro is his own man, and doesn't need help to win the big one. And he knows, Big E isn't going to need them. Mojo Rawley comes out third, and basically thirds the comments. He tells them that when his partner, Zack Ryder, got injured, he didn't stay at home waiting for him to get better, he went out on Smackdown Live and tried his hardest at every challenge thrown his way. He didn't always win, but he always tried, and he did that by himself. Big E gets fed up with this, he calls out Harper and Hawkins, if they went to throw in their two cents before stating that if everybody has such a problem with him celebrating with his boys, then we can settle this tonight. The New Day versus The Booty Buds! Mojo's down with it. Cesaro is on board too. McIntyre clarifies that he's not consenting to either part of that name, but he really wants to clock them, so it's a match.

    We get a video package of the events that transpired last night on Monday Night regarding the Women involved in the Money in the Bank contest, as well as Bayley and Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss. The commentators then tell us as a graphic appears that tonight we'll see Three of the Four Horsewoman versus Nia, Naomi, & Mickie James. Saying that since Bayley & Bliss aren't in the Women's MITB, they don't have the right to use them, and it was suppose to be a four-on-three like on Raw but Natalya backed out of the match earlier tonight, citing she needed a mental health day.

    Singles match ~ Carmella, with James Ellsworth, defeats local talent Isabella McElla via Code of Silence at 3:40. Before the match begin, Carmella stated that last week, Smackdown Women's Champion did nothing impressive. Last week she tapped out some nobody in 44 seconds, pft, "I can do that in half the time". Before the bell rang, she told them to put the timer on. After the match, Ellsworth attempts to comfort Carmella's time, saying it was only five times longer than Asuka's, that's nothing. Besides, Asuka cheated. "& Hey, you won, that's what really matters!" Carmella looks more annoyed than relieved but things go from bad to worse as The Usos make their way down. As the two begin to crowd them, Carmella ditches. Jimmy and Jey talk back and forth with each-other, having a conversation about whether they should let Ellsworth off the hook because his girl just left him from dead. "Nah Uss, he had to know this was coming. You can't cost the Usos a match and expect to get off Scott free." After some stalling, Jimmy nails Ellsworth with a superkick as Jey heads to the top rope. However, Carmella is back and with Enzo Amore & Big Cass. The Usos ditch the ring and escape through the crowd, as Enzo & Cass lift Ellsworth up. Shane McMahon comes out, and says he just had a brilliant idea for next weeks Smackdown Live. A Six-Inter-Gender Tag Team match, between Ezno, Cass, & Carmella vs. The Usos and The Smackdown Live Women's Champion, Asuka!

    Backstage Apollo Crews goes talk to Shane McMahon. He pleads with Shane McMahon to give him another shot at Money in the Bank. He knows he screwed it up twice in a row but he also knows that he is still the most athletic guy on the roster, and a top prospect on Smackdown Live. He got over-confident, who wouldn't if they were gifted like him but that won't happen again. Shane McMahon informs him that those qualifying matches meant something and that the battle royal was billed as a last chance, "Sorry but no dice". Apollo doesn't give up, he tells Shane he isn't asking to be added to the match, he'll earn it. Just give him a shot. Crews continues to beg until Shane relents. "I'll tell you what" there are six guys in Money in the Bank, you lost to two of them, if you beat any of the six guys in the match, you'll be the seventh. Tonight, the only member available is Luke Harper but if he can't beat Harper, then next week, he gets his pick from Drew, Cesaro, & Hawkins for his last chance. Don't mess this up, it might be the last shot you ever get.

    We get a video package of Lars Sullivan attacking and pummeling both Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton last week, stating that Lars Sullivan will be on Smackdown Live next week. Rhyno is seen backstage, when he is approached by Heath Slater. Slater tells Rhyno that he gets it, it wasn't personal, it was the last chance battle royal. He tells Rhyno that before there match tonight, he just wanted to let him know that their is no hard feelings for last week. Rhyno takes offense to that, no hard feelings for last week, last week I lost the last shot at a world title I might ever get. "There's nothing but hard feelings."

    Money in the Bank qualifier for Apollo Crews: Singles match ~ Luke Harper defeats Apollo Crews via Discus Lariat at 6:18.

    Six-Woman Tag Team ~ Nia Jax, Naomi, and Mickie James defeats The Four Horsewoman (Charlotte, Sasha Banks, & Becky Lynch) via Mick Kick/Leg Drop combo from Mickie James and Nia Jax on Sasha Banks at 11:38. Post-match, Nia Jax turns on her team-mates, knocking Mickie James and Naomi down with a double clothesline, followed by legs drops to both of them. After that however, she turns around to be knocked down by Charlotte with a moonsault from the top rope. Charlotte immediately follows up with a Natural Selection on Nia. At this point Sasha has regained composure enough to lock Nia into the Bank Statement. As Nia wails her arms around in an attempt to get out, Becky grabs the one opposite of Sasha and locks on, a slightly modified, Dis-Arm-Her onto Nia too. Eventually Nia does tap to the double submission hold, leading to them releasing the hold, and closing the segment with Three of the Four Horsewoman celebrating in the ring.

    Curt Hawkins is in the middle of the ring with a microphone. He calls out Kevin Owens, telling him that he spoke with Shane McMahon, and as he's sure KO's been informed, that tonight he's getting a United States Championship match. We both agreed that last week you clearly reneged on an obvious deal but Hawkins didn't want to do what Kevin did, and just ask for the Championship back. No, he's going to win it, fair and square, and once he does, Kevin Owens is going to have to Face the FACTS! Curt Hawkins, is the rightful United States Champion. Kevin Owens comes out and tells Curt that he has no problem with giving him a Championship match. Hawkins is depriving some out of his luck bloke from Rochester, New York his one shot at glory but clearly that doesn't matter to greedy Americans like Hawkins. But before the bell rings, KO needs to know, why is Hawkins focusing on him so much? Aren't you in the Money in the Bank ladder match, shouldn't that be your focus? Hawkins goes to respond but Owens cuts him off immediately. Don't talk, I'm making a point okay. It was rhetorical question, everybody here knows why Hawkins is focusing on Owens. Because Curt knows that he isn't winning Money in the Bank. He knows that he only qualified because guys like KO weren't allowed to compete for it. Five other guys and a bunch of ladders? Hawkins already faced the facts, he can't win that. "I understand you're just trying to ride the momentum from qualifying, But you're making a mistake thinking you have a better shot at my title". Because at Money in the Bank, anything can happen. Hawkins could theoretically win that match if he just hides and let the other five do the real work until only he is standing. In this match, Hawkins only has himself to rely on. Last week, the only reason he beat Owens is because some idiot in the production truck, "Who I will get fired", played AJ Styles theme as some act of terrorism to The Face of America.

    United States Championship: Singles match ~ Kevin Owens (c) defeats Curt Hawkins via Pop-up Powerbomb at 3:30. Like last week, AJ Styles theme music played the second the bell rang but Kevin Owens didn't divert his attention for a second. Owens controlled most of the match, by the end he was taking his time too much and Hawkins managed to mount some hope spots but Owens put him away quickly after that. After the match, as Kevin Owens celebrated with the United States Championship the fans erupted in cheers. Not for the reason Owens thought, but because AJ Styles appeared behind Owens with a steel chair in hand. Once Owens turns around, AJ stabs Owens with the chair, then slams down on his back. Owens eventually scampers out of the ring with Championship in tow. Styles grabs a microphone, and yells at Owens, that at Money in the Bank, he's taking that Championship. And this isn't like last time, "you tried to end my career"! At Money in the Bank, No Count-outs, No Disqualifications, "if you have any guts, I'll see you out there. And if you're going to run away again like you just did, I'll drag you out there."

    Tag Team match ~ The Ascension defeats Heath Slater & Rhyno via Fall of Man from Konnor/Viktor to Heath Slater at 5:11. Rhyno never tagged in during the match, and at the finish actually leaped off the apron as Slater went for the hot tag.

    Six-Man Tag Team match ~ The New Day defeats Drew McIntyre, Cesaro, and Mojo Rawley via Midnight Hour from Woods/Big E on Mojo at 14:43.

    Randy Orton is out in the ring with his WWE Championship on one shoulder and a mic in the other hand. He states, last week we all saw Finn Balor's true colors, the true colors of their relationship. For weeks, Orton had to listen to people like Dolph Ziggler say that Orton couldn't beat Finn. That Finn was making Orton look like a chump, not a Champ. At Backlash, Orton beat both Finn Balor and Dolph Ziggler in a triple threat. And yet Finn still persisted, he managed a lucky fluke win off Orton, but Orton proved after the match, that it was just that, a fluke. And last week, Balor proved that he can't hang with him. He didn't fight Orton himself, he threw Orton to a monster in Lars Sullivan. Finn Balor, needed somebody's help to get the advantage on him. He's not a man, he's more like a child running to his daddy for help. At Money in the Bank, Orton's going to shatter him. Finn Balor voice is heard saying "That's enough Randy." The voice didn't come from a microphone but the titantron, which has Finn Balor on it. Orton doesn't seem impressed, citing this as further proof to Finn's cowardice. Balor tells Orton that he's right, he did feed Orton to Lars. But he didn't do that because he was too afraid to compete with Orton. He did that, to prepare Orton for Money in the Bank. Because Orton was right again, Finn isn't a man. And at Money in the Bank, Orton's not facing just Finn Balor. The lights in the arena go out and the titantron goes blank. Finn's voice echoes throughout the arena "Demon King". Demon King Finn Balor makes his entrance, once the theatrics are done there's nothing but an intense stare-down between WWE Champion Randy Orton and Demon King Finn Balor. Orton makes the first move, but Finn blocks the strike and levels Orton with a few of his own. Orton manages to knock Finn down with a clothesline, he goes for a second but Finn ducks and hits the Overhead kick. Finn then signals for the running front dropkick but Orton notices and ditches the ring, leaving his Championship behind. Finn grabs the Championship, and holds it up high as Smackdown Live goes off the air.

    Smackdown Live
    Episode #930
    June 13th, 2017


    Smackdown Live kicks off with Apollo Crews in the ring, who brings up the deal he made with Shane McMahon last week. If he can beat any competitor in Money in the Bank, he'll be added to the match as the seventh competitor. Last week, he failed to get the job done. But this week, he can choose any of three that he hasn't faced yet, Cesaro, Drew McIntyre, or Curt Hawkins. He calls all three of them out, to help him decide. He goes over their accomplishments one by one to decide. First Drew McIntyre, former Tag Team Champion and former Intercontinental Champion, who has been on something of a war path since returning. Cesaro, former United States Champion and former three time Tag Team Champion, including one victory of dethroning The New Day as the longest reigning Tag champs in WWE History. Recently lost against The Usos, but hey, it was Sheamus that took the fall. And last but certainly least, Curt Hawkins! He uh, beat Aiden English? Curt Hawkins makes it clear that he's a former Tag Team Champion but Apollo just scoffs, "Like a decade ago". Apollo Crew has made his mind up, for his last chance at Money in the Bank, Apollo Crews will take on Curt Hawkins!

    Money in the Bank qualifier for Apollo Crews: Singles match ~ Curt Hawkins defeats Apollo Crews via Fact Check at 5:33. During the match, Apollo was taking Hawkins lightly again, and at the finish boasted just long enough for Hawkins to come back from behind and nail his finish.

    We return to Smackdown Live in a backstage close-up camera interview with Becky Lynch about the historic upcoming inter-promotional Women's Money in the Bank match. Lynch focuses on losing. She says everyone in the match is in the match because they're not Champions. Either they haven't earned a shot or they couldn't win when they got their shot. Like at Backlash, when Becky Lynch took on Smackdown Women's Champion Asuka. She gave Asuka everything she had, Becky performed at the highest level, her best. And in the end, it didn't even matter, Asuka retained. But Becky isn't going to pout, Becky doesn't lose and lose her head. It drives, motivates, fuels her flames even more. At Backlash, her best wasn't good enough. So come Money in the Bank, her best will be better. And she'll walk out, with as the first ever Ms. Money in the Bank. And if you don't believe she can do, you might want to look up who the first ever Smackdown Women's Champion was.

    Backstage Shane McMahon is seen on the phone, talking to Daniel Bryan, who we learn is slated to return the Smackdown after Money in the Bank. The phone call is interrupted by the United States Champion, Kevin Owens. Owens demands that Shane McMahon reins in AJ Styles, who not only doesn't deserve another Championship shot but doesn't deserve a job after showing so much disrespect to the Face of America. Before Shane McMahon can speak, Dolph Ziggler shows up, and agrees with KO. He states that Owens already beat Styles but he hasn't beaten the Show-off. Shane reminds Ziggler that he already has an opponent for Money in the Bank. Ziggler suggests just having Styles fight Lars then! Shane tells both Ziggler & Owens that this is what's going to happen, tonight Ziggler vs. AJ Styles to determine the number one contender for the United States Championship, the loser will face Lars at Money in the Bank. Does that work for everyone? Ziggler is satisfied by KO insists Styles shouldn't even be giving any chance to compete for the belt and this just shows the bias on Smackdown Live. Owens storms out after that, and Shane shakes his head and says the he's so glad Daniel's coming back.

    Six-Inter-gender Tag Team match ~ The Usos and Asuka defeats Enzo Amore, Big Cass, & Carmella, with James Ellsworth, via Asuka Lock on Carmella at 15:12. During the match, Carmella did her best to avoid Asuka, tagging out as quickly as possible whenever Asuka was tagged in. The finish saw Jimmy in Cass' corner as Cass charged at him. Jimmy managed to avoid Cass, and nail him with a DDT quickly after. He then superkicked Enzo off the apron and went to tag in Asuka. Carmella was forced to enter, and Ellsworth was too busy cheerleading her on to notice Jey had sneaked around the other side, managing to knock Cass off the apron by swiping his legs when Cass got there, meaning Carmella couldn't tag out. Ellsworth noticing Carmella's worry runs into the ring, gaining the attention of the ref, Carmella, and Asuka. But Jey simply grabs his legs from outside, takes him down and pull him out. This gave Asuka the perfect opportunity to cinch Carmella into the Asuka Lock off the distraction.

    Smackdown Live presents us with another sit-down camera interview, this time with Natalya. Natalya chides the other competitors in the match, stating that she's the only one who's been approaching this with any intelligence. Nattie's seen Asuka perform, she knows what a nigh unstoppable monster she is in the ring, nobody's beat her. But their is a way to beat her, with Money in the Bank. It doesn't matter how tough you are, how unstoppable you are, everyone has their limits, and with Money in the Bank, she can cash in once Asuka reaches hers. That's why she let Carmella win, the poor little girl can try her darnedest to beat Asuka but she's going to get eaten alive. Meanwhile, Natalya just has to be smart and reach the briefcase before seven other women. Which seemed like it be a challenging task but everyone else in the match has shown their stupidity. Nattie has been avoiding all conflict, she's been focused on training and staying healthy. These other women, are jumping into matches they don't need to have. Sasha, Becky, Charlotte, Nia Jax, and Naomi wrestled both Raw & Smackdown last week, because they went out of their way to engage the opposing brands selection. Come Money in the Bank, the only wrestler without nagging injuries from overwork is going to be Natalya, and along with everything else, it means she's can guarantee, her victory at Money in the Bank.

    The New Day are walking backstage when they spot Cesaro, they taunt him for not being selected, like the nerdy kid in dodge-ball. Cesaro explains to them that it's actually the opposite, Apollo was choose who he thought was the weakest. They parlay that into bragging about how then why was Cesaro an option but Big E wasn't. Maybe it was because last week they shut Cesaro, Mojo, and Drew up by defeating them in tag team action. Cesaro again explains that it was because Apollo never fought Cesaro but Sheamus comes in before The New Day can retort. He reminds them that they beat Cesaro's partner, not Cesaro and that besides, if they truly want to take on Cesaro at his best, you need to face him with his true partner, not some misfits. Sheamus challenges The New Day to a tag team match later tonight, and specifically requests to face the two fellas that think they're in the Money in the Bank match because Big Fella won a qualifier match.

    Singles match ~ Randy Orton defeats Aiden English via RKO at 2:16. After the match, the WWE Champion grabs the microphone and address Finn Balor. He tells Balor that you might intimidate others with your make-up, with your Demon King persona. That the legend of the Demon King you tell everyone might get into the heads of everybody else in that locker-room, but Balor, "you're dealing with me, the Legend Killer." At Money in the Bank, not only will Randy Orton retain his WWE Championship but he will kill the Legend of the Demon King and the dreams of Finn Balor.

    Sasha Banks is the next in line for the sit-down camera interviews, and she talks full of confidence about the upcoming Money in the Bank ladder matches. She talks about her history with the historic, how she was making historic moments down in NXT with Bayley, how she was making them constantly on the main roster with Charlotte, and how now that she's on Smackdown Live, she plans to continue, willing to sacrifice whatever it takes as long as she walks out Ms. Money in the Bank. From her view, Charlotte is the biggest threat, and the only that can claim to have the same amount of exposure in high pressure situations like Money in the Bank, since they shared the spotlight at Hell in A Cell, Roadblock, and many Raw's. But even if Charlotte's a threat, Sasha is more than prepared for her, and is ready to remind everyone, whose the legit boss.

    Backstage, Slater approaches Rhyno with his hands behind his back. He tells Rhyno that he understands that he feels like his career might be winding down before he ever reaches the heights both of them know he is capable of. He understands what it's like to have the fear, heck, if it wasn't for Rhyno he wouldn't even have a job. He worried about his kids, he knows the high strung pressure involved with your career. But their friends, and Slater's there for him, he just needs to know that it's the same for Rhyno. Before Rhyno answers, Slater tells him he got him a gift, his favorite thing. He brings his hand forward revealing some cheese-wiz and crackers on a plate. Rhyno smiles and takes them, he eats a cracker or two and Heath slaps him on the shoulder, "Glad to have you back, friend." Rhyno responds "We're not friends". Slater looks confused as Rhyno finishes the cracker before knocking Slater down with a punch. He then grabs the plate and breaks it off Slater's head. He tells Slater to meet him in the ring at Money in the Bank, and he'll show him how friendly Rhyno really is.

    United States Championship #1 Contender's: Singles match ~ AJ Styles defeats Dolph Ziggler via Phenomenal Forearm at 6:08. The finish of the match saw Dolph Ziggler nail AJ Styles with a Superkick after Kevin Owens, who was suppose to be on commentary, distracted Styles by leaving the booth and heading to the ropes, but before he could get the pinfall, Lars Sullivan made his way out to the ring, distracting Dolph. When he finally turned around to try and finish Styles off quickly, Styles had already rolled to the ring apron, and pounced at him with the winning shot. Once Styles won the match, Lars Sullivan entered the ring to pummel Dolph, while Styles left to pummel Kevin Owens. Sullivan/Ziggler was one-sided in favor of Lars while Owens/Styles was more even. Owens went for an Apron Powerbomb on Styles who countered with a hurricanrana, sending Owens to the apron. Styles then threw Owens into the ring. Lars Sullivan then targeted Owens, hitting him with a Teardrop Spinebuster to end the segment.

    Finally, Mickie James is giving time to speak in the sit-down camera interview. She talks about the unbelievable amount of disrespect that the current diva's still seem to have for her. Despite her legacy, she feels like nobody is truly treating her as the threat she is. She's won more Women Championships than Sasha, and Mickie actually knew how to hold on for them longer than a month. That people like Sasha may claim to be the best, to be the future but Mickie James has beaten Sasha every-time they've fought, and she'll do it again at Money in the Bank. She'll prove to everyone now only is she a legend worthy of respect, but a legend that is still growing.

    Backstage, Enzo, Cass, & Carmella are seen sitting down sulking backstage following their loss. James Ellsworth pops in with some champagne, and ask everyone what's with the down faces. They're all quick to remind him of their loss earlier, and Ellsworth shrugs that off. This infuriates Enzo, who stands up and tells Ellsworth that maybe it doesn't matter to him, but they all got champion aspirations here, and being played like that before a title match, ain't something to go poppin' champagne over. Ellsworth tells "Zo" to relax, Enzo shoots back that Ellsworth can't call him that, he hasn't earned it. Ellsworth says look, even with the loss, Money in the Bank is still the show of C.E.E.C. and that's worth celebrating. Cass questions the acronym, to which Ellsworth shoots back, Carmella.Ellsworth.Enzo.Cass. Cass is offended by being last billed, Enzo's offended by Ellsworth being ahead of them, and suggests E.C.C.E, Enzo.Cass.Carmella.Ellsworth. Ellsworth refuses saying Carmella is the star here, saying that he could give him Carmella.Enzo.Ellsworth.Cass, Cass stands up and is starting to get annoyed by being ranked last twice in a row by Ellsworth before Carmella tells them all to shut up, that doesn't matter. Ellsworth chirps back at the guys telling them "Yeah, stop being so immature". Carmella rolls her eyes and asks for Jimmy to just get on with his point. Ellsworth says that at Money in the Bank, Carmella and you two still have your Championship matches, and that Ellsworth will be in both their corner to assure their victories. So tonight, instead of moping, they should hit the town and celebrate, with this champagne that Ellsworth got them. They all agree, and Ellsworth tries to uncork the bottle to no avail, before Cass takes it and does it easily.

    Tag Team match ~ Sheamus & Cesaro defeats The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods, with Big E) via a Very European Uppercut from Cesaro to Xavier Woods at 15:51. The finish saw Xavier Woods going for a Springboard Elbow Drop on Sheamus but Cesaro managed to make the save with the winning mid-air catching Uppercut. He placed Sheamus on Xavier afterward and dashed to knock Kofi down with another Uppercut. After the match however, Big E nailed Cesaro with the Big Ending. Big E was then taken out by a Brogue Kick from Sheamus, who was then knocked down by Trouble in Paradise. Xavier then managed to hit Sheamus with the Springboard Elbow Drop. The two go to turn around to check on Big E, but are lopsided by a double clothesline from Mojo Rawley. Mojo then waits for Big E who is using the ropes to return to his feet near the corner, and once he sees his opportunity nails Big E with a Running Corner Forearm Smash. Mojo jumps up and down celebrating, but is soon lifted up from behind for a Spin-out Powerbomb from Apollo Crews. Apollo kicks Mojo away after doing it, before Curt Hawkins slides in and hits Apollo with The Fact Check for the second time tonight. Hawkins is quickly dropped by a Discus Lariat from Luke Harper. Harper stands tall among the wreckage, before Drew McIntyre joins the battlefield, knocking Harper down with a Claymore followed by a Future Shock DDT. Drew McIntyre then lifts his hand dominantly, before Cesaro clubs him from behind, and nails McIntyre with a Neutralizer to close the show.

    Money in the Bank
    June 18th, 2017
    Pre-Show


    Aiden English helps kick off the pre-show, interrupting the round table discussion near the beginning of the show by coming out, and grabbing a mic. He informs the audience that they unfortunately will not be graced with his heavenly voice, he didn't come out here to sing. He came out to issue an open challenge to the locker-room because apparently Shane McMahon has failed to put the star on his show. A star that faced off with WWE Champion Randy Orton just this past Tuesday. Aiden declares he isn't leaving the ring until he gets a match. His challenge is answered, by none other than Zack Ryder, officially returning from injury!

    Singles match ~ Zack Ryder defeats Aiden English via Rough Ryder at 8:20.

    Singles match ~ Rhyno defeats Heath Slater via Gore at 0:10. Even when the bell rang, Heath Slater didn't want to compete. He could be heard saying, "I'm not going to fight you, we're friends!". Rhyno responded not with words but the winning Gore. Post-match, Rhyno didn't even look at Slater, he just headed straight to the back with a stern expression on his face.



    Money in the Bank kicks off with the Smackdown Money in the Bank match, as The New Day first make their way out to a large ovation. All the competitors come out one by one, ending with Curt Hawkins. As Curt Hawkins makes his entrance down the stage, Apollo Crews runs up from behind with a steel chair and knocks him down. He slams the steel chair to the back of Curt Hawkins multiple times before inserting himself into the Money in the Bank in place of Curt Hawkins.

    Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a WWE Championship Match Contract
    Cesaro vs. Mojo Rawley vs. Curt Hawkins Apollo Crews vs. Luke Harper vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Big E (with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods)


    The Money in the Bank match is immediately a quick paced battle and keeps that pace all throughout the match. Rather than telling a big coherent story throughout, we get a series of fast spots, with every-one getting a spot or two to shine. Mojo Rawley immediately targeted Apollo Crews, and quickly knocked him out of the ring with a devastating running Forearm Smash. Luke Harper nailed Big E with a suicide dive when he was going to bring a ladder into the ring, and since Xavier and Kofi were next to Big E, the ladder E was holding ended up taking them out too. Cesaro cleared house by performing the Giant Swing to a ladder, though was too dizzy to capitalize after knocking everyone down with it. Apollo Crews nailed Mojo with a standing moonsault while Mojo was sandwiched in the two sides of a ladder. Drew McIntyre stopped a Luke Harper ladder rampage by hitting the ladder with The Claymore, knocking it into Harper. Finally, all three members of The New Day brought out giant ladders to place in between the barricade and the ring aprons. They situated Harper on the last one, and starting on the first ladder moving to the next, Big E sent Harper threw that ladder with a Running Splash.

    The Finish began with the ladder set-up in the middle of the ring, Mojo chooses to start his climb by running towards the ladder and jumping past several rungs. Unfortunately for him, his early momentum doesn't save enough time for him to reach the top, as Apollo Crews stops him. Apollo manages to lift him off the ladder and back a bit in back drop position, before transiting into a Spin-out Powerbomb. Apollo kicks Mojo out of the ring and boasts before beginning to climb the ladder. However he is thwarted with a steel chair to the back from Curt Hawkins! Hawkins brings Apollo down and hits him with The Fact Check, before climbing to glory himself. Hawkins stops himself though, when he sees Apollo lying down on the floor, Hawkins re-positions himself, and dives off the ladder nailing Crews with a Heat-Seeking Elbow! Hawkins begins his climb again but notices Cesaro enter the ring, so he leaps off again to stop Cesaro but is caught mid-air with an Uppercut. Harper runs in the ring and knocks Cesaro down with a Discus clothesline. When Harper turns to the ladder, he instead meets Kofi's Trouble in Paradise! Xavier pulls Big E in the ring, and the two of them lift Big E onto their shoulders and then onto the ladder. Big E is closing in on victory as Xavier blows Francesca II and Kofi dance in celebration but unknown to them McIntyre tips the ladder over in-between them, sending Big E down onto Harper, Mojo, Apollo, and Hawkins. Drew manages take Kofi out of the ring, and Cesaro sneaked back into the ring to take out Xavier. Cesaro and Drew McIntyre end up fighting over the briefcase over top, with the victor winning by slamming the briefcase into the other's head, knocking them off the ladder and giving the winner's time to retrieve the belt.

    Smackdown Tag Team Championships: Tag Team Match
    Enzo & Cass (with James Ellsworth) vs. The Usos (c)


    The match begins with Enzo vs. Jey Uso. Whenever Enzo is out, the Usos tend to have control for a good period of time. Enzo does eventually manage to mount some offense, but whenever he starts to build momentum, the illegal Uso halts it, like by attacking Enzo as he rebounds off the ropes. Enzo eventually gets the hot tag, and Cass begins cleaning house. The Usos eventually regain control by tag teaming the right leg of Cass, including their tag team front facelock/jumping stomp to the back of Cass' leg. Big Cass still manages to mount offense from time to time but The Usos always revert control by targeting the leg.

    The Finish begins when Big Cass hits Jey with a back body drop, and manages to tag in Enzo Amore. The duo hit Bada Boom Shakalaka but Jimmy breaks the fall. Jimmy then nails Cass on the Apron with a Superkick before picking Enzo up and with Jey hit him with the Alley-Uce. Cass then pulls Jimmy out of the ring and knocks him out with a Running Big Boot. Cass grabs his leg after that move, and turns around to be planted by a suicide dive from Jey. Ellsworth from the outside begins tuning up the band until Enzo is heard yelling at him about DQ's. Jey finds this amusing and begins egging Ellsworth on, while Enzo using the ropes to try and get to his feet acts as the angel to Jey's devil. Cass eventually knocks Jey down from behind and chases after him as Jey begins to run away. Jey runs to the other side of the ring, rolls in and thanks to Cass' bad leg, has enough time to drop Cass with a baseball slide. Jey confidently struts back to Enzo, who is mid-flight and takes Jey down with the DDG, 1. . . 2 . . . . . . . . the three never came but Jey never kicked out. Jimmy had stopped the count by attacking the ref from behind. Jimmy then hits Enzo with a Superkick, and Ellsworth now comes in with a steel chair in hand but misses them wildly, instead getting hit by a Superkick. Jimmy the instructs Jey to get to the top, and Jimmy places the chair wrapped around Ellsworth's head. Jey hits the Samoan Splash, and they then toss Ellsworth outside of the ring onto Cass. Hitting another Alley-Uce on Enzo before Jey returns to the top as another referee stampedes his way down to the ring. Samoan Drop from Jey and cover.

    Singles match
    Lars Sullivan vs. Dolph Ziggler


    This match saw Sullivan absolutely terrorize Dolph, dominating from the get-go with a powerful clotheslines, strong clubbing blows to the side of the head, a strong knee strike right to the ribs to a grounded Ziggler, a Canadian Backbreaker, a powerful scoop powerslam preceded by a knee strike to the back, and an iron claw slam, this was not a fun experience for Dolph Ziggler.

    The Finish began when Lars Sullivan lifted Dolph up for a stalling suplex. Lars Sullivan even began moving around while hoisting him around but as impressive as that was, it gave Dolph enough time to hit some knee strikes from up above on Lars, until Ziggler was eventually returned to his feet. Dolph Ziggler then planted Lars Sullivan with a Superkick, which only staggered the behemoth. Dolph couldn't believe it, but quickly went for another Superkick, only this time for Lars to catch it one-handed. Lars squeezed on Dolph's poor foot with his massive hands, bringing Dolph down to the ground. Lars then lifted him up for a walking Teardrop Spinebuster, to win his debut match in WWE.

    Backstage, Carmella runs into James Ellsworth, being taken out of the arena on a stretcher. Carmella asks what is James doing, her match with Asuka is coming up any time now, and he promised her that he'd be by her side. Ellsworth goes to respond but the medical personal chime in first, stating that he sustain serious injuries and can't risk suffering any more damage. Carmella says he's fine with the risk, let him go. Ellsworth confirms that he is fine with it, but the medical personal ignore both of them and drags Ellsworth away.

    Inter-Promotional Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a Women's Championship Match Contract
    Becky Lynch vs. Nia Jax vs. Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya vs. Naomi vs. Mickie James vs. Ember Moon


    The historic first ever women's match begins as a handicap, as all the women, except for Natalya who leaves the ring, rushes Nia Jax. Nia manages to fend them off for awhile but eventually the number games catch up to her, and the women send her out of the ring, followed by Sasha taking her down with a Suicide Dive after. From here the match becomes another showcase of the various talents, as they all get at least a spot to shine, among a mix of others. Lynch locks in a modified version of the Dis-Arm-Her on Naomi, situating Naomi's arm through a ladder rung, sandwiching Naomi's shoulder in-between the two sides of a ladder. Charlotte hits a beautiful moonsault off the top of the ladder on the outside of the ring, landing all the women in the match aside from Sasha, Natayla, and Nia. Sasha follows up Charlotte's moonsault, taking Charlotte down with a Diving Meteora from the top turnbuckle. Natalya re-emerges from hiding at this point, and throws Banks into the steel steps before entering the ring for what would be an easy win. Nattie has her finger tips on the briefcase, until Nia lifts the ladder up, walks a bit before dumping Natalya out of the ring onto the seven other woman in the match. Nia goes to climb the ladder but she breaks the rung. She searches under the ring for a sturdier ladder, and begins climbing them. It's at this point the other women start coming back in. It's not until all seven are back that they manage to tip of the ladder, crashing Nia to the floor, and eliminating both her and her ladder from the match. Naomi goes on a Rear View spree, knocking down Sasha, Natalya, & Mickie until Charlotte stops her with a big boot/Natural Selection counter. Mickie James so shades of Shawn Micheals with a top rope Ladder Lou Thesz Press splash to Becky Lynch. Ember Moon manages to hit an Eclipse on Natalya off the two-thirds point of a ladder.

    The Finish begins with Charlotte climbing a ladder to victory, and Ember Moon joins her up there after dealing with Nattie. Charlotte eventually chops away her problem, ending by kicking Ember Moon off the ladder. While that happened, Sasha set up a ladder right next to Charlotte and climbs the opposing side to Charlotte. When the two meet up they the do battle, which Sasha wins. She pulls Charlotte through the top rung of Charlotte's ladder, and by facing away from Charlotte, Sasha locks a Modified Bank Statement on Charlotte using the ladder. During this hold however, Mickie James sneaks up the other side of Sasha's ladder, and reaches for the briefcase.

    Winner
    Spoiler:

    Sasha Banks!

    Sasha noticed Mickie right before James could unhook the briefcase. She let go of Charlotte and transitioned onto Charlotte ladders, then quickly using her legs to push down Mickie's ladder, causing Mickie to fall outside the ring to be caught by Nia Jax, who was just returning to her feet.

    All of a sudden, an awesome rock ballad begins blasting over the PA System, and out comes out a returning Maria Kanellis with an some guy attached to her hand. She re-introduces herself to the WWE Universe as the First Lady of WWE, and talks about how during her time away she was searching for the perfect partner, and her man chimes on with "That's me! Mike Kanellis." After some disgusting googly eyes shared between the two, Maria informs everyone, the two of them have returned to Smackdown Live to educate everyone on the Power of True Love. The incredibly awesome theme music kicks back in as the two of them begin to slow dance.

    United States Championship: No Holds Barred Match
    AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens (c)


    The match starts full fire, with AJ and KO just pummeling each-other from the opening bells. The whole match didn't take long to escalate, and was a series of big spots one after another. If AJ Styles hit Owens with Ushigoroshi supplanting his knee with the seat of a set-up chair then Owens would later respond by doing the same, replacing the knee in his pumphandle neckbreaker with steel steps. Owens hitting Styles with a running Cannonball Senton when Styles was in-between the ring side and the steel steps, Styles would eventually return the favor with the Styles Clash off the bottom Steps onto the floor. If Owens hit Styles with the Go Home Driver from the second rope, then AJ make him pay for it by jumping off the barricade to send him KO through the announce table with a 450 splash. The two kept trading major blows back and forth without success, and that'd continue til the finish.

    The Finish began with a Pop-up Powerbomb from Kevin Owens in an attempt to final vanquish the valiant Styles, but he wasn't able to get the three count. Frustrated, Owens threw Styles outside, and went to deliver a devastating Apron Powerbomb like at Backlash, but just like on Smackdown, Styles reversed it into a hurricanrana, sending Owens straight into the hardest part of the ring. AJ Styles climb back inside the ring thanks to the ropes, while Owens crawled toward the remaining announce table. Noticing this, Styles got to his feet and waited, once Owens was back on his feet leaning on the announce table, Styles pounced with a Phenomenal Forearm through the announce table! After what normally would be at least an 8 count, Styles returned to his feet and lifted Owens up, who with his last bit of strength hit a low blow on Styles. Owens then slowly crawl to the ring, just barely getting in using the apron and the ropes. Styles managed to find himself back on the apron as Owens was still recuperating, and AJ removed his elbow pad and threw it into the crowd, preparing for another devastating Phenomenal Forearm. Styles goes for the jump but is hit in the legs from behind! With the Money in the Bank Briefcase, it's Drew McIntyre! Drew pulls Styles, who held onto the ropes, off the apron, bouncing Styles' head off the apron. He then nails AJ with a Future Shock DDT, before planting him back on the apron with a gutwrench suplex. McIntyre then pushed Styles into the ring and makes his leave to the ire of all except KO. Owens simply places his back shoulders onto Styles prone body, and raises his hand with each count as the ref makes his way to three. BUT AJ Styles kicks out right before three! Owens lifts Styles up, shouts out him about not being better than him about not being worthy for Owens' Championship, before viciously irish whipping him and hitting a second Pop-up Powerbomb to finally put Styles to rest.

    Smackdown Women's Championship: Singles Match
    Carmella vs. Asuka (c)


    Asuka/Carmella was a fairly one-sided fight. Carmella would constantly back herself off in the ropes or try to use the ref in order to just give herself some breathing room, as Asuka dominated most of the match with strong quick kicks, some submissions, some take-downs, and some suplex's to spice things up as if Asuka was toying with her.

    The Finish began when Carmella managed to dodge the roundhouse kick ending Asuka's barrage of stiff kicks to the chest. Carmella goes for a roll-up but rather than go for a pin, she does this to toss the back of Asuka's head against the bottom turnbuckle. She covers after this but only barely gets past a 1 count. She keeps up on Asuka though, hitting her with a Reverse STO before immediately locking in the Code of Silence. It takes longer than some might suspect but Asuka does manage to power and maneuver her way out of the hold, and she quickly applies the Asuka Lock afterwards, forcing Carmella to tap out.

    Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a Universal Championship Match Contract
    Seth Rollins vs. The Miz (with Maryse) vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. R-Truth


    The Raw Money in the Bank match starts off with those involved segregating into three different matches. Rollins & Ambrose go after Wyatt, Shinsuke and Truth go after Corbin, and Sami goes after Miz. These pairings remain for the early goings of the match, only changing when Corbin manages to get and End of Days on Truth on the outside mat, only to be greeted by a Kinshasa from Shinsuke. With Corbin & Truth temporarily out of the match and the others distracted, Shinsuke is the first to bring a ladder into the ring. Sami notices Shinsuke climbing and changes direction, climbing the opposite side of the ladder. Miz recovers from Sami's attack sooner than Zayn expected, and topples the ladder over, sending Shinsuke and Sami outside, landing on Ambrose/Rollins and Wyatt respectively. From here the match shifts to one of three separate feuds to a series of big spots with whoever's in the ring. We see R-Truth go on a mini-ladder rampage only to be taken down by Rollins springboard knee. We see Ambrose hit a Lunatic Fringe Elbow Drop from the upper rungs of a ladder inside ring to the outside, taking down Shinsuke, Bray, Sami,and Miz. We see Corbin taking out Rollins with an End of Days off a ladder.

    The Finish begins with The Miz climbing the to the top of a ladder, with another ladder leaned against it on the other side. Shinsuke Nakamura enters the ring and does his drop down pose on the ropes, signalling a Kinsasha. Shinsuke then runs up the other ladder and nails Miz with a Kinasha, this ends up taking both out of the match. Mayrse pulls The Miz out of the ring and checks on him, trying to get him back up. Sami Zayn then manages to return to the ring and climb up the ring, with nobody else up is guaranteed the briefcase. But Bobby Roode runs out and stops Sami. He goes for the Glorious DDT off the ladder but Sami stops him and kicks him off. Roode uses the ropes to get up, and lounges at the ladder, knocking it down to prevent Sami from getting the briefcase. Roode tosses Sami out of the ring, and re-sets up the ladder. He goes outside and tries to help The Miz up, but Dean Ambrose, taps Roode on the shoulder, then nails him with a Dirty Deeds when he turns around. Dean then says hey to Maryse, clocks Miz with a free punch anyway, shrugs at Maryse before returning to the ring. Ambrose is stopped from victory but Bray Wyatt, and the two battle for a few minutes until eventually Ambrose has the ladder set-up on top of Bray. Ambrose climbs the ladder but it's at this point that Rollins recovers and climbs the other side of the ladder. The two former Shield members have a stare-down at the top of the ladder, ready for war before the lights go out. When they come back on, Wyatt is free from the ladder and Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas appear a few rungs below Ambrose and Rollins respectively. The two members of The New Wyatt Family take Ambrose and Rollins down, and begin beating them down as Bray Wyatt ascends the ladder. R-Truth sneaks in and knocks Bray off. This gets the attention of the remaining family, who deal with Truth, tossing him out of the ring. When they turn around Ambrose & Rollins clothesline the two out of the ring and when they turn around, Baron Corbin clotheslines both of them out of the ring. Finally with nobody else left standing, Corbin climbs the ladder and changes his last name to Money in the Bank.

    Winner

    WWE Champion Randy Orton makes his entrance first, with a mic in hand to a hometown pop. He congratulates the fans for cheering him, and insist that they should cheer even louder because the only thing of worth to ever come out of St. Louis Missouri is Randy Orton. Orton was going to continue but Demon King Finn Balor's entrance started, and cut him off.

    WWE Championship: Singles Match
    Finn Balor vs. Randy Orton (c)


    The match began with Orton charging at Finn only to be taken down with an arm drag. Orton took a moment before recomposing and then went on the offensive again, only for Balor to remain on top again. This pattern continued for awhile until Orton straight up left the ring and started pacing around the ring, kicking the steps and yelling at the fans, all the while the Demon King's just crouching down in the ring staring and waiting for Orton to return. Orton takes a deep breath before returning to the ring at the count of 7. The two have a longer exchange this time ending with Balor getting a near fall with a basement dropkick. Orton retreats once more to the outside, but the Demon King awaits him on the apron, nailing him with a devastating Football kick when Orton turns around to face the ring again. He then hits a stunning suicide somersault senton before throwing Orton in the ring and hitting a slingshot foot stomp for another near fall. Things remain this way for Orton, until he manages to nail Finn with an RKO, which Balor kicks out of at 2! Frustrated Orton begins assaulting Balor with non-stop barrages until the ref manages to pull him off. Randy then keeps control of the match, significantly slowing the pace down with rest holds and methodical strikes. Finn would gain momentum up again every now and then but Orton managed to hit one of his signature moves, like his inverted headlock backbreaker or Rope-Hung DDT to return control in his favor.

    The Finish began when Randy Orton failed to put away Finn Balor after a Superplex. Once the frustrations settled, an evil grimace appeared on Orton's face, and he begin backing his way to the furthermost corner from Finn, eagerly waiting for him to get up for the Punt Kick. The commentators put over how dangerous the move is, reminding that Shane even said Orton would be fired if he used it again. Orton dashes for the Punt Kick but Balor dodges and rolls Orton up for 2.7 count. Once both return to their feet, Balor blasts Orton with a running front dropkick, nailing Orton to the turnbuckles and back on the ground. The Demon King ascends to the top, poses for all to see, then drops down for the Coup de Grace, but Orton rolls towards the turnbuckle! Balor rolls through, and goes back to charge at Orton who instead plants Balor with a second RKO!

    Winner
    Spoiler:

    KICK-OUT!

    At 2.99, The Demon King Finn Balor kicked out of Randy Orton's second RKO! Randy Orton and the crowd lose their mind, prompting Randy Orton to return to the a corner, waiting once again to hit the Punt Kick. Orton dashes for the Punt Kick but Finn retaliates with the Sling Blade. Balor then goes to another corner, and once Orton returns to his feet, once again drops him with the running front dropkick. Demon King once more goes to the top, and flies for the last time as the challenger, hitting the Coup de Grace in order to score the pinfall.

    Winner
    Finn Balor, and New WWE Champion!

HE announces that tonight he won't be leaving the ring until he gets a Universal Championship match at Great Balls of Fire. RAW GM Kurt Angle makes his way out to the ring and agrees that Strowman wasn't given a fair shot in the tournament, by having to work injured. He announces that at GBOF, Strowman will get his championship match against Reigns, and if Samoa Joe beats Reigns tonight, he will also be in the match. Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring and states that it's not fair that Strowman gets a free championship match against Reigns with no hesitation and Joe has to earn his match by potentially injuring himself in a match against the champion.

Corbin laughs, saying there was never any question that he would be the one to win the title and that everyone knew he would be the one to earn the briefcase. Charly asks him about when he will cash in the contract. Corbin says that the good thing about being Mr Money In The Bank is, he doesn't have to tell her or anyone when he wants to cash in. He can do it tonight, or months from now at some house show in a no name town if he wants to. He goes on to say that they'll find out when he's going to cash in his contract, when he cashes it in, and that's it. She wishes him luck with his match against R Truth up next, and he laughs as he walks away mentioning how it's barely a match.

Nia mentions that there's another match going down at Great Balls, Naomi vs. Charlotte vs. Ember Moon vs. Dana Brooke where the winner will take on the Women's champion at Summerslam.

    Smackdown Live
    Episode #931
    June 20th, 2017


    Smackdown Live begins with Shane McMahon standing in the middle of the ring. He tells everyone that it's been his pleasure to fully run the day-to-day activities since WrestleMania, and he knows Smackdown Live remained the Land of Opportunity and the best show on WWE weekly but as we leave Money in the Bank behind and look toward the future, Battleground, Smackdown Live is only going to get better. Because not only will Shane still be around from time-to-time to lay down the law and help make the best matches possible, but tonight will feature the return of the Smackdown Live General Manager, Daniel Bryan! Daniel Bryan's music begins to play as the crowd pops big time for the returning General Manager. Daniel Bryan only gets to exchange a few pleasantries with the audience before Mr. Money in The Bank Drew McIntyre interrupts Bryan's speech. He tells Bryan that while he was lazing around with his family, Smackdown Live has changed. McIntyre isn't sure if Bryan even bothered watching since he can't even compete anymore, but Drew McIntyre made his return, and unlike this little affair, actually made an impact. Nobody really cares about who makes the matches, they do care about who is Mr. Money in the Bank, who is guaranteed a Championship victory. And last night, everybody left with one name on their mind, Drew McIntyre, and Daniel Bryan, "You're returning to Drew McIntyre's Kingdom". Ms. Money in the Bank Sasha Banks comes out, taking offense to Drew McIntyre's allegation that everyone left Money in the Bank thinking about McIntyre. Sasha reminds McIntyre that Sunday was the first ever Women's Money in the Bank ladder match, which she won and she guesses little Drew got his ego hurt so he tried to make sure he was remembered by screwing over AJ Styles. At the call of his name, AJ Styles makes his way to the ring, stating that Sasha makes a good point, and that Styles was actually dying to get a chance to talk with Drew about that. He turns his attention to Bryan and tells him he's glad he's back because-Kevin Owens cuts Styles off from the ramp, telling him that he doesn't need to finish because Owens knows exactly where he's going with this. AJ is going to request another opportunity at his United States Championship and Bryan's going to give it to him because Smackdown is the 'Land of Opportunity', Owens sarcastically says complete with disgusted eye-roll upon finishing that sentence. KO tells AJ that he needs to man up and accept his loss, it doesn't matter that Drew attacked him because Styles demanded a match with no disqualification. Mickie James charges out of the ring next, she moves right past Owens, AJ, and McIntyre, directly confronting Sasha Banks. She tells Sasha Banks that she isn't on Mickie's level, and that every-time they've faced off on Smackdown, James has proven that by pinning her every-time. If Sasha is confident that she is Ms. Money in the Bank, then she should put that on the line against Mickie. Kevin Owens tells Mickie and Sasha that nobody cares about their petty cat-fight, Owens certainly doesn't, what he cares about is seeing if Daniel Bryan isn't a corrupted bias ruler like Shane McMahon, "Yeah, you" Owens says and points at Shane when he reacts to Owens claims, and does the right thing for once, deny AJ Styles another hand-out Championship match. Mickie James shoots back at Owens that he needs to learn how to respect legends like herself. Daniel Bryan chimes in that you two better get on the same page because he just got an idea. For his first act back as General Manager, he's going to kick Smackdown Live off right, with a Six-Inter-Gender Tag Team match, McIntyre, KO, & Mickie vs. Styles, Sasha, & anyone in the back who feels like helping.Heath Slater answers the call, stating that ever since McIntyre beat Rhyno in the qualifier for Money in the Bank, their friendship has began to crack, and Slater won't forgive McIntyre for that.

    Six-Inter-gender Tag Team match ~ AJ Styles, Heath Slater, and Sasha Banks defeats Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens, and Mickie James via Phenomenal Forearm from AJ Styles to Kevin Owens with Heath Slater scoring the fall at 15:31.

    The commentators hype up the new WWE Champion Finn Balor's celebration later tonight, before being interrupted by the Power of Love. Mike and Maria Kanellis make their entrance on their ramp, and once more introduce themselves to the WWE Universe. Maria cites herself as the First Lady of the WWE and Mike Kanellis as the love of her life, a few googly eyes later, they both announce that next week, they'll begin educating everyone on True Love, with something very special to show everybody. They leave, leaving the commentators curios before hyping up the next match, a tag team match pitting Apollo Crews and Dolph Ziggler against Luke Harper and Curt Hawkins.

    Tag Team match ~ Luke Harper and Curt Hawkins defeats Dolph Ziggler and Apollo Crews via roll-up from Curt Hawkins on Dolph Ziggler at 3:38. During the finish of the match, Dolph Ziggler was firmly in the charge but that all changed when Lars Sullivan began storming out to the ring. This caused a now worried and distracted Dolph to get caught with the three count from Curt Hawkins. Hawkins rolls out of the ring and Harper joins him, meanwhile Apollo who's on the apron facing the ring, dives off to attack Lars but is caught with one massive hand from Lars Sullivan, ending up on the receiving end of an Iron Claw slam. Lars then storms in the ring but is met with a Superkick from Dolph. This stumbles Lars into the middle ropes, and Dolph pounces on him with punches but is quickly shoved off by the monster of a man. Apollo Crews jumps Lars with a Sleeper hold but is quickly tossed off, and Sullivan continues his dominance while Hawkins and Harper make their return up the ramp. However, Luke Harper pauses, and looks in the ring as Lars decimates Apollo and Ziggler. Harper dashes in the ring, and nails Sullivan with a Discus Lariat to the back of the head, bringing Lars to his knees. Harper follows up with a Superkick to the side of the head, putting the kneeling behemoth on his back. Crews, Ziggler, and Harper then leave the ring, with Crews and Ziggler heading straight to the back. Harper however pauses on the ramp and looks back, to see a seething Lars Sullivan already standing back up.

    Next up on Smackdown Live, we've got Becky Lynch vs. Carmella schedule for action. Both woman are out there ready for action, but before the bell rings, Natalya comes out, with microphone in hand, and deriding this match as a match between losers. Stating that they've already lost to Asuka, it's clear that neither of them, especially Carmella, has no chance of winning the Women's Championship, so what reason is there to even bother competing. Carmella grabs a microphone and tells Natalya off. She says that she hasn't even been here for a full year yet, and yet she wrestled for the Championship at the PPV. Nattie adds because she let her, and Carmella tells her to shut it. That Natalya's been here for over a decade, and only has one Championship reign. Natalya adds that's more than Carmella has, again Carmella snaps at her to shut it again. She says that Nattie may have let her win, but we all know that she did it because she knows she can't beat Asuka, and is too scared to even try. That's probably why her Money in the Bank plan was to hide like a coward. After a decade of losing, finally learnt you can't wrestle so now you try to win while avoiding it. Becky Lynch was clearly loving this back-and-forth, before grabbing the microphone from Carmella. She says that she could honestly listen to this all day but this is Smackdown Live, so we should just settle this in the ring. She tells Natalya if she wants to prove that she's not a coward, now's your chance, fight or run?

    Triple Threat match ~ Natalya defeats Carmella, in a match also involving Becky Lynch via Nattie-by-Nature at 6:15. The finish of the match saw Becky lock Natalya in the Dis-Arm-Her, only for Carmella to break it up by Superkicking Becky Lynch. Carmella then went to hit Natalya with a Reverse STO to set up for the Code of Silence, but Natalaya elbowed her way out of it and hit the Nattie-by-Nature. She used the damaged arm to hit that move, so she pinned her by lying over Carmella while on her back, hooking one leg with the healthy arm and locking it in by holding the damaged arm.

    Sheamus & Cesaro are out in the ring, with one goal in mind, the Smackdown Tag Team Championships. After a few jabs at Cesaro for coming up short at Money in the Bank from Sheamus, the two declare that they're intentions are still firmly set on Championship Gold. They throw down the challenge to The Usos right here, right now but it's Enzo & Cass that respond. Enzo does the most talking, stating that Sheamus & Cesaro are at the very end of the line of who deserves a shot, considering The Usos beat them two without attacking the referees and flat-out cheating. Simply put, they got screwed out of the belts last Sunday, and they even took Ellsworth out, and Enzo's grown to like that little dork. So Usos, it's personal. The Hype Bros make their way out next. Mojo tells Enzo that if he wants to talk about the line, the Hype Bros are at the front of it. Zack Ryder reminds everyone that before his injury, they actually earned a Championship match, and now that Ryder is cleared to compete again, they're going to have that match. The New Day come out and introduce themselves to Zack Ryder. They ask him if they recognize anyone standing in the ring right now because from Ryder's perspective, he may have taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque and wound up on Monday Night Raw, because none of these teams were on Smackdown Live when he was injured. This is not the Smackdown Live that they earned a Championship match during, this is a new, fresher, less booty Smackdown Live, and they don't hold that right anymore. The New Day mention that their plans for a the first ever trio to hold a World Championship at the same time might've flopped, but to be fair it was three-on-six at Money in the Bank. But when it comes to Tag Teams, there is no better, no more deserving, then the longest reigning W... W... E... Tag... Team... Champions, in history, The New Day! The Usos come out, but stay on the stage. They tell them that you fools can decide this among yourselves because frankly, it doesn't matter who the Usos fight because The Usos are going to win. They ain't just the Smackdown Tag Team Champions, they be the longest Smackdown Tag Team Champions in the belt's history. Jimmy begins listing off the former Champs with Jey adding a comment after, Heath Slater & Rhyno (The Cheez-wiz kids crumbled like crackers), The Wyatt Family (Fell to pieces from internal attackers), and American Alpha (We beat the so much even on Raw they barely factors). The two switch roles, now talking trash about who are challenging them now, The Hype Bros (Biggest career highlight is a former youtube sensation), Enzo & Cass (whose biggest pal is a dweeb with a Carmella infatuation), Sheamus & Cesaro (who we beat so bad probably shouldn't even be in the conversation), and The New Day (Three grown men who act like kids not even old enough to attend Middle School graduation). So nah, we ain't afraid of any of y'all. Daniel Bryan makes his way out and agrees in part with The Usos idea to have them decide among themselves. He sends The Hype Bros to the back because they'll be getting their Title match next week, on Smackdown Live! The remaining three teams however, will compete right here, right now, to determine the number one contender at Battleground!

    #1 Contender's: Triple Threat Tag Team match ~ The New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston, with Big E) defeats Enzo & Cass, in a match also involving Sheamus & Cesaro, via Trouble in Paradise from Kofi Kingston on Enzo Amore at 16:36. During the finish, Big E also hit Sheamus with the Big Ending and he covered Sheamus at the same time as Kofi covered Enzo, but only Kofi was legal.

    Finn Balor makes his first entrance as the WWE Champion on Smackdown Live. Despite being touted as a celebration, the ring is empty with no decorations, something that Finn Balor addresses early on. He states that he doesn't need any fancy decoration to celebrate, no streamers, confetti, or drinks required to make this moment mean everything to him. All he needs for that, is right here. All he needs is all around him, all he needs to celebrate is Balor Club! He vows to be a fighting Champion, and to carry this Championship with the prestige that it holds. He mentions that this Championship win, is even a bit more special for him. He brings up that a little less than a year ago, Finn Balor reached the highest point in his career, when he defeated Seth Rollins at SummerSlam to become the first ever Universal Champion. But that was accompanied by one of the most disappointing moments, he needed to vacate the Championship due to injury. Well, Orton doesn't hit as hard as he'd like because Finn Balor has never felt better, and he isn't going anywhere this time! However, right as he finished up saying that Randy Orton slide in the ring behind the WWE Champion. Once he turned around he got planted with an RKO from Orton. Orton then picks up the microphone and tells Balor "Don't be so sure, history is doomed to repeat itself". Before dropping the microphone and heading to the corner of the ring, Punt Kick incoming. Shane McMahon rushes out to the ring with microphone in hand, screaming at Orton not to do it, reminding Orton that he will be fired if he does the Punt Kick once more. Orton does a little self-chuckle smirk as if to say, "Yeah, right" before nearly kicking Finn's head off with a brutal Punt Kick. Shane McMahon says "I warned you! Randy Orton, YOU'RE FIRED!", Shane then sends security out to the ring to remove Orton while Shane grabs Finn, but Orton disposes of the security without much struggle. RKO's left and right, and Shane calls for the locker-room to come help out. Aiden English, The Ascension, The Hype Bros, Curt Hawkins, Rhyno and The Usos end up coming up and eventually taking Orton down. Dragging him out of the arena by the end, and the show closes with Finn being placed on a stretcher while Shane and Orton have an intense stare-down as the Smackdown roster forces him out of the arena.
