    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Mod note: Going to try recapping commentary to cut down on length.

    Raw:

    June 10th:
    San Jose, California

    The commentary team starts the show off with the usual introduction as Michael Cole and Big Show run down the matches that have already been announced for tonight's show before mentioning the Raw Women's title match between Becky Lynch and Beth Phoenix will kick off tonight's show.

    *CELTIC INVASION*

    Becky Lynch makes her way out to the ring getting a loud pop from the live crowd as she gets ready to put her Raw Women's title on the line but as she is walking down the ramp she is attacked from behind by Beth Phoenix! This gets a mixed reaction from the crowd with some understanding why Beth is so heated ahead of this match. Becky though gets back to her feet and fight back as she tosses Beth into the ring.

    Becky slides in the ring and jumps on Beth hitting her with a few strikes herself. Beth though is stronger and fights her off. The referee gets in between the two women trying to stop them from fighting but Beth grabs the referee by his collar and demands he rings the bell to get this match underway! The referee looks a little worried and does what she says getting this title match officially underway.

    Match 1: Raw Women's title match: Becky Lynch (c) vs Beth Phoenix

    Match summary:
    This match is a brawl with both women spending most of the match throwing fists at each other and brawling, not letting up when they are in control. The referee has to warn both women on a couple of occasions to let their opponent out of the corner including one moment where Becky gets a hanging armbar in on Beth Phoenix in the corner! The finish of the match comes as Beth Phoenix sends Becky the outside of the ring and follows after her.

    Beth Phoenix looks to carry on the attack but Becky counters and charges at Beth hitting her in the mid-section sending her into the barricade. The referee in the ring has gotten to a 7 count but neither women is paying attention to the count. Becky and Beth end up falling into the crowd as they carry on fighting. The referee tries to get their attention but it is no use as they start brawling up into the stands as the referee finishes his ten count waving the match off!

    Winner: Double countout (4:45)

    The camera looks to follow the two women as they are now up by the stairs as Beth picks up Becky and slams her back first onto the railing! Beth looks to lift her up again but Becky punches her in the head sending her back down the stairs. Commentary say this is going to get out of hand as Becky has grabbed Beth Phoenix and slams her head onto a door opening it, taking both women into a lobby!

    Becky tells the fans to move out of the way as she is laying into Beth with several hard strikes but Beth connects with a gut punch before slamming Becky onto the concrete floor! Beth then pounds on Becky before looking to lift her into the air as she sees a table set up with a bunch of merch and looks to powerbomb Becky through it! However, Becky desperately fights back trying to save herself!


    Becky moves her body and tries to put Beth Phoenix in the dis-arm-her! However, Beth thinking quickly seeing one of the drinks someone has left on the side tossing it in Becky's face! The drink is enough to make Becky lets go of the hold for a second as Beth takes a moment to recover from being locked in the armbar. Becky meanwhile looks to use the table they were fighting by to get to her feet but Beth wipes her out with a massive spear! This brings all the items down as both women are down in around the merchandise stand. The commentary team then tell us, Paige, the Raw commissioner is trying to get the situation under control and we are going to a commercial break.


    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial break we can see a bunch of security guards now stood around what was the merchandise stands as they try to keep the two women apart. Both women though are still desperate to get their hands on each other as Paige walks onto the scene.


    Paige:
    I mean I do like it when people prove me right but I would rather you two not destroy our merchandise stands.


    Becky Lynch:
    Aren't I making the company enough money already?


    Paige gives Becky a death glare, in no mood for her attitude right now. Beth meanwhile as this is going on breaks free and hits Becky in the face with a punch sending her down. Security grabs hold of Beth trying to defuse the situation as Becky now looks angry as she fights the security guards off and pounces on Beth laying in a few fists of her own!


    Paige:
    ENOUGH! Guys get this under control now!


    We see a few more security guards come on the scene as they grab the pair pulling them part once again and a few of them stand in between the pair acting as a human wall. Paige sighs before she speaks again.


    Paige:
    Right as I was trying to say before, I knew this would happen. I knew this match would descend into chaos.


    Beth Phoenix:
    I don't care. I will not stop until I teach this bitch a lesson!


    Becky Lynch:
    Any time any place. Hell if we take out these security guards we can finish this ourselves!


    Paige:
    OK how about a compromise? In 2 weeks at Stomping Grounds, I will give you two your match for Becky's Raw Women title but to make sure we get a finish it will be a street fight.


    A loud pop from the fans in attendance as both women stare each other down looking intense and still ready to fight each other.


    Paige:
    But you two need to leave now. Both of you.


    Becky Lynch:
    I can wait two weeks to defeat a legend.


    Beth Phoenix:
    Defeat me? I am going to destroy you for every stupid comment you have made about me, my best friend Natalya and my husband!


    Both women stare each other down as we cut to what looks like a house party as we can hear a lot of loud music playing and people drinking from red plastics cups. There seems to a great atmosphere to the party and everyone is having fun as the camera cuts to two people playing beer pong but we can't see who they are facing. However, they are getting their ass kicked as they turn to each other.


    Guy 1:
    We just can't beat these guys.


    Guy 2:
    I am not sure who can.


    The camera would then pan to the two men they are facing in beer pong as we can see Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford jumping up into the air high fiving each other before taking a few drinks from the red plastic cups in their hands. Both men are dancing and having a good time like the rest of the party-goers.


    Montez Ford:
    We want the smoke.


    Angelo Dawkins:
    Say it louder!


    Montez Ford:
    We want the smoke!


    Angelo Dawkins:
    Uh huh!


    We can see a bunch of girls starting to join the pair as they dance next to both men.


    Montez Ford:
    We want the smoke.


    Angelo Dawkins:
    Come on ladies.


    Montez Ford:
    We want the smoke.


    Everyone (along with the Street Profits):
    We want the smoke. We want the smoke. We want the smoke.


    Everyone in the room is now partying along with the Street Profits as the video package comes to an end with the following writing appearing on the screen:


    The Street Profits

    Bringing the swag back to Monday Night Raw
    Coming Soon


    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial break the commentary talks about the Street Profits and hype up their time in NXT, calling them one of the hottest young teams in the company today. As they are
    talking we can see Mojo Rawley waiting in the ring as he looks angry. Commentary mention last time he was on Raw he lost to Curt Hawkins and he will be looking to get back on track tonight.

    *ELITE*

    Chad Gable makes his way out getting a decent reaction from the live crowd as he looks fired up tonight. The commentary team mentions how important a win is for Gable 2 weeks away from his United States title match with Samoa Joe. He steps into the ring as he sizes Mojo Rawley up but is stopped in his tracks as this hits:

    *DESTROYER*


    Samoa Joe makes his way out with the United States title slung over his shoulder as he is in quite a nice suit. He takes a moment as he smirks at Gable before joining the commentary team. Joe puts on the headset and says the champion is here to do some scouting. Gable struggles to take his eyes off Joe which seems to annoy Mojo Rawley.


    Match 2: Chad Gable vs Mojo Rawley


    Match Summary:
    Mojo uses Gable being distracted by Joe's presence and catches him off guard at the start of the match overpowering the Olympian. Joe on commentary comments that for all of Gable's technical skills his mental game is weak. He says Gable instead of focusing on the task in hand was too focused on Joe. Gable though starts to take apart Mojo, going after the legs looking to cut the larger foe down to size.


    Mojo once Gable starts taking out his legs can't keep up his usual pace and power, allowing Gable to take control even hitting Mojo Rawley with a couple of impressive German
    suplexes catching the United States champion by surprise too. In the end, Chad Gable has Mojo Rawley on the ropes and takes him down to the mat locking in the Anklelock! Mojo tries to find a way to get to the ropes or escape from the submission hold but it is no use and he taps out giving Chad Gable the win.


    Winner via submission: Chad Gable (7:46)


    Chad Gable gets his hand raised by the referee in the ring as the crowd cheers him on. Commentary would then ask Joe what he thinks about the match he just saw. Joe praises Gable but says whilst Gable is a good talent and a great technical wrestler, he will lose to me because he is mentally weak. Joe would take off the headset placing it on the commentary table as he walks to the entrance ramp as Gable dares him to step into the ring. However, Joe shakes his head instead choosing to sarcastically claps from the top of the ramp annoying Chad Gable.


    We then cut to the backstage area as we can see
    Cesaro is working out in a gym lifting some weights. As he is doing this we see Zelina Vega walk into the room and Cesaro notices immediately as she walks over to him.


    Cesaro
    : Hello Mrs. Vega.


    Zelina
    Vega: Call me Zelina. I have to say Cesaro I'm a big fan of your work. Have been for a long time.


    Cesaro
    : Thank you.


    Zelina
    Vega: But you need someone to take you to the next level. To take you where you belong.


    Cesaro
    looks like he is going to question Zelina but she holds her hand out for a moment.


    Zelina
    Vega: You have always performed the best when you are aligned with someone. Kassius Ohno, Aksana, Zeb Coulter, Tyson Kidd and most recently Sheamus. Look how successful you two were as the Bar. You work best with others and with someone to help you. I can help you succeed.


    Zelina
    pulls a card out of her pocket giving it to Cesaro.


    Zelina
    Vega: Think about it.


    Zelina
    Vega walks off with a smile on her face as Cesaro can be seen looking at the card thinking about the offer as he lets out a small smile.

    *HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD*


    As we return from the commercial break
    Dolph Ziggler makes his way down to the ring in a denim jacket and a pair of sunglasses looking like someone from the '80s. He does not look happy as he as the commentary team remind us what happened last week with Mr. Money in the Bank Andrade Cien Almas attacking Dolph Ziggler, with Zelina ordering the attack due to feeling disrespected. Ziggler once inside the ring asks for a microphone and starts to speak.


    Dolph
    Ziggler: You know these last few months have been rough but last week I actually managed to win a match. It is OK I was shocked too, guys.


    Ziggler
    takes a moment to shake his head.


    Dolph
    Ziggler: Things were finally looking up. Maybe I could start winning matches again but then Andrade attacked me.


    Ziggler
    grabs his neck rubbing it.


    Dolph
    Ziggler: Last week Zelina said she did it because she won't be disrespected. Well excuse me Zelina but with the greatest disrespect, I don't need you!


    Cheers from the camera as
    DolphZiggler is getting fired up.


    Dolph
    Ziggler: I ain't a rookie who needs a helping hand to get ahead. I'm my own man and I will fix this rut on my own! But how about I show you both why I am still the best at showing off. So Andrade how about you come out here right now!


    *MAKING A DIFFERENCE*


    Andrade
    Cien Almas makes his way out to the entrance ramp as he is joined by Zelina Vega who is holding his Money in the Bank briefcase. Ziggler smirks in the ring.


    Dolph
    Ziggler: Do you need her to follow you everywhere?


    Andrade looks annoyed but
    Zelina smiles.


    Zelina
    Vega: Andrade is a smart man. He knows what a great manager can do for someone. See Ziggler you talk about no longer needing someone but your two world title wins you had a manager in your corner guiding you. Without someone guiding you, you don't have what it takes to make it to the top.


    Dolph
    Ziggler: Well how about you get Andrade to step into the ring with me right now and we will see if you are right!


    Zelina
    Vega: My client is a prize attraction. He is not stepping into the ring unannounced.


    Boos from the crowd as
    Ziggler laughs.


    Dolph
    Ziggler:So you're afraid that your client will lose to the person who rejected you?


    Zelina
    Vega: You wish that was the case. No, my client belongs on the big stage, where the big money is. So if you want to fight him, then it will happen at Stomping Grounds!


    Dolph
    Ziggler: That is fine because I will steal the show on the big stage once again and beat your client. Show off.


    Dolph
    Ziggler drops the microphone as he stares down Zelina Vega and Andrade. Andrade meanwhile starts trash talking Ziggler in Spanish with Zelina Vega letting out a devilish smirk. We would then cut to the backstage area as Renee Young is stood ready for an interview.


    Renee Young:
    Would you please welcome my guest at this time, Mustafa Ali.


    Mustafa Ali walks into the shot getting a decent pop from the fans as the popular cruiserweight is all smiles.


    Renee Young:
    You are two weeks away from the biggest match of your career how are you feeling?


    Mustafa Ali:
    Well Renee I'm feeling great. I have a chance at redemption. I have the chance to step into the Chamber, something I missed out on due to injury in the past and I'm one match away from the Universal title!


    ???:
    Shame you have no chance of winning.


    Mustafa Ali and Renee Young turn around as we can see the Club walking onto the scene lead by AJ Styles.


    AJ Styles:
    Listen, kid, you're great. You have one hell of a future but you ain't phenomenal. I mean look at me. Since coming to the WWE, there has barely been a moment where I haven't held some kind of gold. Whereas you Ali? You just can't quite grab the brass ring. But don't worry, my boys will show you how it's done.


    All 3 men walk towards the ring as Mustafa Ali shakes his head annoyed by AJ
    Styles's comments. The commentary then let us know that up next after the commercial break Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins will defend their Raw tag team titles against the Club.


    Ad break


    *OMEN IN THE SKY*


    The Club marches to the ring getting boos from the live crowd with AJ Styles joining his boys at ringside. Commentary mention Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows are former Raw tag team champions and tonight they look to become 2-time tag team champions. They also talk about AJ Styles competing for the Universal Title in the Elimination Chamber and soon the Club could be covered in gold.


    *WEIGHTLESS*


    The Raw tag team champions make their way down the ramp getting a good reaction from the live crowd.
    Jey Uso hypes both men up as they come down the ramp, focusing on Curt Hawkins as he tries to boost his confidence. Curt Hawkins listening to the words Jey is saying speaks to Ryder and asks if he can start the match. Ryder agrees as Karl Anderson starts for the Club looking to avenge the draw from two weeks ago.

    Match 3: Raw tag team titles match: Ryder and Hawkins w/Jey Uso (c) vs The Club w/ AJ Styles

    Match summary:
    Karl Anderson does not learn his lesson from 2 weeks ago and mocks Curt Hawkins as soon as he steps in the ring. This backfires as Curt Hawkins takes control and actually lays into Karl Anderson, stunning one half of the Club. Karl Anderson would respond to this by bringing his partner Luke Gallows into the match. Hawkins would bring Ryder into the match and after the early flurry, the match becomes a lot more even.


    Jey
    Uso on the outside of the ring makes sure to keep AJ from getting involved, keeping the Phenomenal one in check. The Club starts to take control of the match overpowering Ryder and Hawkins. Karl Anderson at one point hits a running jumping powerbomb getting a very close two count but Hawkins makes the save for his team! Ryder after this is really struggling to survive.


    However, he fights through the damage and makes the hot tag bringing Curt Hawkins into the match. He is a man on fire as he knocks down Luke Gallows with a dropkick before sending Karl Anderson to the ring floor with a lariat as Hawkins is getting fired up. Curt would stalk Luke Gallows as he waits for him to stumble up before grabbing him and planting him with the laugh riot! 1 2 Gallows kicks out! Curt Hawkins looks at the referee worried that was not enough to put him away. The camera quickly cuts to the outside as Karl Anderson can be seen fighting Zack Ryder and is taking control!


    Curt Hawkins though in the ring looks towards the top rope and starts to make the climb as he gets ready to hit the heat-seeking elbow! He takes a moment but AJ grabs his foot distracting him for second but Jey Uso jumps on AJ Styles laying into him as those fight off elsewhere! Hawkins repositions himself and flies off the top rope! However, Karl Anderson has slid into the ring and pulls Luke Gallows out of the way causing Hawkins to crash and burn. Karl helps Gallows up as they both grab hold of poor Curt Hawkins and hit him with the Magic Killer! Gallows makes the cover 1 2 3
    THE CLUB ARE THE NEW RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!


    Winners and New Raw tag team champions: The Club (12:10)


    On the outside, we can see AJ has taken out
    Jey Uso sending him into the barricade before joining his boys in the ring. We see Zack Ryder has slid inside as he was just short of breaking the pinfall. Ryder looks devastated that their tag team title reign has come to an end. The commentary team talks about AJ maybe being the difference maker but the run of form Ryder and Hawkins have been on has come to an abrupt end. Both members of The Club lift their titles in the air as AJ Styles says something to the pair as they look at Ryder on the ground and boot him in the face! The crowd are booing the hell out of The Club until:

    *BRAUN/ I AM STRONGER*

    Braun storms down to the ring and The Club once again get the hell out of dodge wanting no part of the Monster Among Men as they flee into the crowd! Braun stands there shouting as he demands they come back and fight him as he looks to follow after them climbing over the barricade and making his way into the crowd but The Club are long gone at this point. Braun looks angry as Michael Cole mentions he is facing Bobby Lashley in the main event of tonight's show.

    Meanwhile, in the ring, Hawkins has just come to as Ryder and Jey look to comfort their friend. Hawkins sits there for a moment before he thanks the pair. He shakes his head saying he let them down. Ryder and Jey try to tell him otherwise but Hawkins shakes his head pushing them away and walks up the ramp looking like he is nearly in tears. Both Ryder and Jey look on before looking to following after him. Show on commentary mentions that a loss like this would hit any performer hard, let alone someone suffering from confidence issues like Hawkins does.


    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial
    break we see Curt Hawkins walking through the back as he leans on a crate backstage and looks like he is going to have a breakdown. However, Jey Uso and Zack Ryder approach him.


    Zack Ryder:
    Bro, listen you didn't let me or Jey down.


    Curt Hawkins:
    I did, I did. We had finally achieved something and now I am a loser once again.


    Jey
    Uso: Everyone loses sometimes Uce. What makes a champion is getting back up after being defeated.


    Curt Hawkins just shakes his head and walks off. Zack tries to stop him but Hawkins puts his hands up.


    Curt Hawkins:
    Listen I need some time on my own. I failed you and...


    Curt just stops on the verge of tears and walks off. Zack looks to go after him but
    Jey stops Zack.


    Jey Uso: Just give him some time Uce.

    Zack Ryder reluctantly agrees as he watches on looking at his friend worried about him as we cut back to the ring. The commentary team talks about what we have just seen as both men hope Hawkins is going to be OK but they mention that The Club has stuck to their word and taken over the tag team division as promised. Will AJ become Universal champion as promised?


    *SKY'S THE LIMIT*


    Sasha Banks makes her way out to the entrance ramp getting a decent reaction from the live crowd however Mrs. Money in the Bank and one-half of the Women tag team champions pauses on the ramp as she waits for her tag team partner Bayley.

    *TURN IT UP*

    The crowd goes mental as Bayley makes her way out in her home town holding up her half of the Women tag team titles! She runs down the ramp and slaps hands with the kids in the front row as Sasha Banks looks on at Bayley with the tiniest hint of jealousy before smiling for the crowd and walking to the ring with her tag team partner. Michael Cole mentions that we are in Bayley's home town and that last week the Boss 'n' Hug connection defeated the Iiconics to retain their Women's tag team titles. Both women climb into the ring as Bayley has a microphone ready to speak.

    Bayley:
    Hello San Jose, California! Let's hear it!


    Cheap but loud pop for the hugger as she lets out a cute smile in the ring enjoying the reaction she is getting from the live crowd as Sasha watches on.


    Bayley:
    You know it feels good to be back in my home town with my best friend and holding these once again.


    Sasha Banks:
    Hey there is no better team than us.


    Bayley:
    But we ain't out here to stroke our own ego.


    Sasha Banks:
    Like a certain man I know.


    That gets a few
    ooohs from the crowd as Banks smiles.


    Sasha Banks:
    Don't worry Becky. Soon it will be Banks2belts.


    Sasha holds the Money in the Bank briefcase in the air showing it off to the fans getting cheers but a few boos for the dig at the uber-popular Raw and Smackdown Women's champion.


    Sasha Banks:
    But we have other business to discuss. We are here to talk about Fire and Desire.


    Bayley:
    Yeah we are calling you out. You took me out and cost me the chance to win that briefcase!


    Sasha Banks:
    You two can deny it all you want but we know it was you so get your asses out here so we can give you the legit beating you deserve!


    Pop from the live crowd as the pair look fired up and they don't have to wait long:


    *GOLDEN GODDESS*


    Fire and Desire make their way out to the ring as Sonya looks to charge down the ramp but Mandy holds her friend back calming her down.


    Sasha Banks:
    No come on, Sonya jump in this ring and fight us right now!


    Sonya once again tries to go into the ring but Mandy tells her to stop as she looks to address Sasha Banks.


    Mandy Rose:
    Listen Sasha we don't know how many times we need to tell both of you this but...


    Sonya Deville:
    If Mandy or I attacked your friend, we would take full credit. So I suggest you stop pointing your fingers at us before we break them!


    Bayley:
    I don't believe you, the Raw before Money in the Bank you promised to destroy me.


    Sonya Deville:
    Yeah and we planned to do that in the actual match. We can beat both of you easily and I will be glad to prove it right now.


    Sonya looks to step in the ring but again Mandy stops her, getting boos from the crowd.


    Mandy Rose:
    Sonya, we ain't fighting them now. No, if you want to get your hands on us, especially when we did nothing to you, it needs to be worth our time. I mean one half of your team has home-field advantage tonight so it ain't going to be tonight.


    Bayley:
    Name the time and the place we will fight you.


    Mandy Rose:
    OK, Stomping Grounds but only if those titles are on the line.


    Sasha Banks:
    Why should we give you a shot at our titles? You haven't earned it.


    Mandy Rose:
    Listen you got lucky when you pinned us in the Elimination Chamber to win those. We should have been the first-ever champions, not you two. And if you want to get your hands on us so badly, it is a simple request.


    Mandy lets out a smile as she whispers in Sonya's ear.


    Bayley:
    You're on.


    Banks looks confused as she didn't want to give Fire and Desire a free title shot.


    Mandy Rose:
    See? That wasn't so hard.


    Sonya Deville:
    But when we take those titles from you and give you the beating of your life, Bayley you will wish your attacker was attacking you again.


    Fire and Desire drop their microphones as they stand on the entrance ramp staring down the Women's tag team champions in the ring who hold their titles for Fire and Desire to see as the commentary team talks about Fire and Desire still denying the attack as the pair wonder if they are lying. Big Show once again asks the question if it wasn't Fire and Desire who was it?


    Ad break


    As we return from the commercial
    break we can see Mike Kanellis stood in the ring as he is kissing his wife Maria, full-on snogging her face off. Commentary meanwhile ignores the pair and informs us that the Raw commissioner Paige has signed off on not only Dolph Ziggler vs Andrade Cien Almas but she has also made the Women tag team titles match between the Boss 'n' Hug connection and Fire and Desire official for Stomping Grounds.


    *ROOT OF ALL EVIL*


    Mike and Maria in the ring stop kissing as they stare towards the entrance ramp as Aleister Black makes his usual intimidating entrance getting a loud pop from the live crowd. The commentary team reminds us he will be taking on Shinsuke Nakamura in 2 weeks at Stomping Grounds. Black looks all business as he walks to the ring not even paying attention to Maria Kanellis at ringside as he steps into the ring ready for this match.

    Match 4: Aleister Black vs Mike Kanellis w/Maria Kanellis

    Match summary:
    Black controls the match from start to finish laying into the Mike Kanellis with a vast array of lethal kicks. Maria at one point tries to distract Aleister Black using her assets but Black stays focused on getting the job done and puts away Mike Kanellis with Black Mass!

    Winner via pinfall: Aleister Black (4:20)

    Mike Kanellis is brought out of the ring by his wife as he is out for the count as Aleister Black cuts his usual stoic pose in the ring before taking a seat in the middle of the mat and starts meditating in the center of the ring. Big Show comments on the dominance shown by Black tonight and wonders if Shinsuke can stop him.


    *SHADOWS OF A SETTING SUN*


    Shinsuke Nakamura makes his way out getting a mixed reaction from the live crowd who are excited to see these two men go head to head. Black in the ring does not react as he just stays sat in the center of the ring looking straight at Shinsuke Nakamura. Shinsuke on the outside smirks at
    Aleister before taunting him on the outside with his come-on taunt. However Black just stares at Shinsuke not playing into Shinsuke's mind games. Shinsuke is unsure how to react as we cut backstage to see Lana and Rusev looking on unimpressed by their allies' antics.


    Ad break


    As we return from the commercial
    break we see Kairi Sane walking through the back when she is attacked from behind by Mickie James! Mickie James lays into Kairi dropping the pirate princess before sending her into a wall. Mickie then mounts Kairi with a Lou Thresz press and hits her with several punches. Mickie rises to her feet as she starts to laugh at Kairi. Kairi is out of it, having been caught off guard by this sneak attack as she stumbles to her feet and gets a Mick kick to the face. Mickie then bends over Kairi Sane and lets out a crazy smile.


    Mickie James:
    This is what you get for disrespecting a freakin legend.


    Mickie James walks off leaving Kairi Sane laid out backstage as we cut back to the commentary team at ringside. Michael Cole criticizes Mickie for the attack saying the disrespect is all in her own head. Big Show though defends Mickie saying that when you're a veteran of a division your spot is always under threat from new talent arriving on the scene.


    *FEARLESS WARRIOR*


    Kalisto
    and Sin Cara make their way out to the ring getting a nice pop from the live crowd as we see Samir Singh and Sunil Singh in the ring, though Samir is the only one dressed to compete as the commentary team mention Kalisto will be taking on Samir Singh in singles action right now. Kalisto steps in the ring as Sin Cara stands in his corner keeping an eye on the other Singh brother.

    Match 5: Kalisto w/Sin Cara vs Samir Singh w/Sunil Snigh

    Match Summary:
    Samir Singh does a lot better then you would expect after him being nothing more than a hired goon for Jinder Mahal during his time on Monday Night Raw but he is still no match for Kalisto who finishes Samir Singh off with a butterfly suplex transitioned into a cross armbreaker!

    Winner via pinfall: Kalisto (5:47)

    Kalisto celebrates in the ring as Michael Cole hypes up Kalisto maybe getting a Cruiserweight title shot in the future if he picks up a few more wins. We then cut to a video package that once again hypes up Goldberg appearing at Stomping Grounds. It shows him destroying people throughout the years and ends asking the most important question:

    WHO'S NEXT?

    Michael Cole and Big Show talk about Goldberg's many victories throughout the years and how there has been no one like him since. We then see the Universal champion Seth Rollins walking through the backstage area getting a decent reaction from the live crowd as Michael Cole tells us he will be in action after the commercial break.

    *TOP ONE PERCENT*


    EC3 makes his way out to the ring getting boos from the live crowd as he is joined by his manager in recent times Drake Maverick. EC3 has a smug look on his face as Big Show talks about how big an opportunity this is for him. Big Show tells us a win over Seth Rollins could potentially give him a shot at the Universal title in the future.


    *BURN IT DOWN/ SECOND COMING*


    The Universal champion makes his way out to the ring getting a pop from the live crowd as he looks fired up ahead of this match. Michael Cole mentions that Seth Rollins will be looking to build up his momentum ahead of the Elimination Chamber match in 2 weeks. Seth steps through the ropes as Drake Maverick talks trash on the outside which Seth ignores.


    Match 6: EC3 w/Drake Maverick vs Seth Rollins


    Match summary:
    The match starts off slowly as EC3 tries to dictate the pace and slow down the more athletic Seth Rollins. EC3 shows off why he was known as one of the hottest prospects in WWE. Drake on the outside acts like a mini cheerleader for EC3 and on a few occasions looks to distract Seth Rollins and even trips up the Universal champion a few times behind the referee's back annoying the champion.


    Seth Rollins gets annoyed towards the end of the match and slides out looking to get his hands on Drake to stop him from getting involved. He grabs hold of Drake and hits the smaller manager with a massive buckle bomb onto the barricade! Seth Rollins goes back into the ring but EC3 catches him by surprise with a kick to the gut as plants him with a front facelock STO!


    EC3 makes the cover getting a close 2 count as he starts to look annoyed. He grabs hold of Seth Rollins as he gets ready to hit him with the one percent but Rollins counters locking EC3 in a sleeper hold. EC3 though quickly gets to the ropes forcing the break! Rollins lets go of the hold as EC3 gets some room to breathe but as EC3 moves away from the ropes Seth catches him with a superkick to the head! This causes EC3 to drop to the mat as Rollins makes his way to the corner as he charges at EC3 and hits him with the Curb stomp. Seth makes the cover 1 2 3 Seth Rollins picks up the win!


    Winner via pinfall: Seth Rollins (10:02)


    Seth Rollins has his arm raised after the match with the commentary team putting over the performance EC3 put in against the current Universal champion but in the end, Seth Rollins was too much for him. Seth Rollins celebrates in the ring happy to have picked up the win when suddenly he is attacked from behind by Bobby Roode! Roode gets boos from the crowd as he cheap shot Seth Rollins after his match.


    Bobby Roode grabs hold of Seth Rollins as he picks him up and sends him into the corner of the ring laying into the champion with several fists. Seth tries to fight back and nearly gets Roode in position to hit the pedigree but Roode counters with a back body drop sending Rollins crashing to the mat. Roode then makes sure to quickly follow up with glorious DDT planting Rollins's skull into the mat. He lets out a smug smirk as he picks up the Universal title on the mat and holds it in the air to boos from the crowd as maybe a sign of what is to come?


    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial
    break we see Tyler Breeze hanging out backstage as he is taking selfies as EC3 and Drake Maverick walk up to him as he is doing it.


    Tyler Breeze:
    Sorry do you guys mind? You're in my light.


    EC3 stares at the camera Breeze is holding before shoulder barging past him. Breeze though doesn't take that well and he spins EC3 rounds confronting him.


    Tyler Breeze:
    What is your problem?


    Drake Maverick:
    I would request you don't get in the top one percent's way.


    Tyler Breeze:
    You think he is the only one who is rich? I am a supermodel. Just look at me and the amazing clothes I wear.


    EC3:
    I would rather look in the mirror as I would see true greatness.


    EC3 walks off with Drake Maverick following after him as Tyler Breeze shakes his head. We then cut to a locker room backstage as we can see the cocky Scottish Supernova. He has a smug smirk on his face as he is in his usual tracksuit.


    Noam Dar:
    A lot of people have been wondering where I have been. Well, the smart ones will know I took a little trip to NXT UK. See it is always good to go back to your home and relax for a bit. You see I was this close to becoming Cruiserweight champion. But I needed a holiday to refresh. And trust me the supernova is about to shine bright, so the whole Cruiserweight division better watch out.


    Noam Dar carries on chewing his gum as he walks off smirking to himself as he leaves.


    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial break the commentary team talks about Noam Dar coming back to Raw after a short break and mention the number of superstars looking to put themselves in a position to contend for the Cruiserweight title.


    *FOR THE BETTER*


    And one of the names who has been confronting Rey Mysterio and looking to challenge him for the title Drew Gulak makes his way down the ramp with an angry look his face. He slides into the ring as he snarls at the crowd. Commentary talk about his time in 205 live and Big Show tells us Gulak says if he was champion 205 live would still be around.


    *WIN IT ALL*


    Tony Nese makes his way out getting a few cheers from the live crowd as he slides into the ring and gets in Gulak's face straight away. Big Show notes Nese might be annoyed by the comments Drew made about him last week, calling him his former sidekick. Michael Cole mentions that Nese may have been Gulak's sidekick in the past and unlike Gulak is a former Cruiserweight champion.

    Match 7: Drew Gulak vs Tony Nese

    Match summary:
    Nese starts the match by firing off on Drew Gulak with several hard strikes whilst Gulak looks to slow down Nese. Big Show notes that Gulak will be looking to take away the speed Nese has being a superior athlete to Gulak whilst Gulak's strengths are his submissions and bringing people down to the ground. Gulak after the early flurry from Nese starts to take control as the damage he is doing to Nese's legs starts to take effect.


    Nese keeps breaking free and fighting back as he tries to go to the top rope but each time he gets free and takes control of the match, Gulak cuts him off. In the end, Drew Gulak locks in a move commentary call the trailblazer (A figure 7 ankle lock and Indian deathlock combination). Nese tries to escape but after a minute of being in the hold, he is forced to tap out giving Drew Gulak the massive win!


    Winner via submission: Drew Gulak (11:32)


    Commentary put over how big a win this is for Drew
    Gulak but after the match, he refuses to let go of the hold. The referee tries to tell him to let go of the hold but he refuses as the ref is unable to pull him off. This goes on until:


    *BOOYAKA 619*


    Rey
    Mysterio with the Cruiserweight title around his waist sprints down the ramp and slides into the ring as he looks to attack Drew Gulak! Drew though seeing Rey Mysterio coming lets go of the hold and slides out of the ring running away from Rey Mysterio. Drew looks to retreat up the ramp as Rey speaks to someone at ringside demanding a microphone.


    Rey
    Mysterio: Drew you talk about wanting to save this division but you just want to destroy any type of wrestling you don't like.


    Drew shakes his head on the entrance ramp shouting he will do what is needed to save the Cruiserweight division.


    Rey
    Mysterio: You say I'm ducking you, why don't you fight me for this title at Stomping Grounds!


    Drew smirks having got what he wants as he tells Rey he will save the Cruiserweight division. Rey takes that as Drew saying yes as he checks on Tony Nese making sure he is OK. Drew meanwhile retreats up the ramp still shouting he will save the Cruiserweight division.


    Ad break


    We return from the commercial break we can see Rey
    Mysterio with a bunch of medical personnel helping Tony Nese to the backstage area.


    Tony Nese:
    Listen thanks Rey I appreciate your help man.


    Rey
    Mysterio: Listen man it was the right thing to do so don't mention it.


    Tony Nese:
    I still appreciate it, man.


    Tony Nese shakes Rey
    Mysterio's hand as the Cruiserweight champion walks off allowing the medics to do their job. They slowly walk him through the back selling the damage done to his leg when they are forced to stop as Oney Lorcan stands in the way. He stands there with an angry glare looking at Tony Nese.


    Tony Nese:
    What do you want?


    Oney Lorcan:
    Weak.


    Oney walks past Tony Nese and the medics as Tony Nese shakes his head as the medics look to get him to the
    doctors room and get him checked over by a doctor. We then cut to Charly Caruso who is stood ready for a backstage interview.


    Charly Caruso:
    Would you please welcome my guests at this time, Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush.


    Both men walk into the shot as Lio Rush is wearing a super fancy and ridiculous outfit whilst Bobby Lashley stands behind his hype man looking as imposing as ever.


    Charly Caruso:
    How is Bobby Lashley feeling ahead of facing the Monster among Men tonight?


    Lio Rush:
    How is he feeling? Lashley is feeling ready to destroy. Another man to conquer and defeat. You call Braun a monster among men? Well, Lashley is a monster amongst monsters. He will destroy Braun tonight as a preview of what he will do when he steps in that Elimination Chamber. Come on Lashley let's go.


    Lio signals for his main man to follow him which Bobby Lashley does as the commentary team inform us the main event between Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman is next.


    Ad break


    As we return from the commercial break, Michael Cole tells that he has gotten word from Paige backstage that the Cruiserweight title match between Rey Mysterio and Drew Gulak has been made official for Stomping Grounds.


    *DOMINANCE*


    Bobby Lashley marches out to the ring with an angry look on his face as he is followed by his hype man Lio Rush who looks to fire him up. Big Show mentions that earlier tonight he saw stagehands reinforce the ring due to the size of these two men.


    *BRAUN/ I AM STRONGER*


    Braun Strowman gets a good pop from the live crowd as he storms down the entrance ramp. He meets Bobby Lashley in the ring as the two giants come head to head. Michael Cole comments Braun is one of the few people who beat Bobby Lashley when it comes to size but Lashley has that MMA background that might prove to be the difference in this encounter as they mention the difficulty Braun has had beating Brock in the past for example. The referee chooses not to waste any time ringing the bell getting this match underway.


    Main event: Braun Strowman vs Bobby Lashley w/Lio Rush


    Match Summary:
    This match is just a massive HOSS battle as the two big men start throwing fists and try to overpower the other. Lio Rush on the outside stays out of it, scared of what Braun would do to him if he gets involved. Braun is starting to gain control of the match as he looks like he is going to lift Bobby Lashley into the air, Lio Rush climbs to the top rope! Braun though drops Bobby Lashley and sees Lio Rush who freezes in fear. However, as Braun stares at him we hear boos from the live crowd as the Club storm the ring and attack Braun Strowman to boos from the live crowd causing the DQ!

    Winner via DQ: Braun Strowman (8:36)

    Michael Cole on commentary calls it a cheap sneak attack by the Club as Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson beat down Braun Strowman as AJ Styles walks into the ring holding a steel chair. He starts laying into the back of Braun Strowman with the steel chair wailing on the monster. Lio Rush meanwhile lets out a cocky smirk as AJ shouts instructions to the Gallows and Anderson who lift Braun up and connect with Magic Killer laying out the monster among men!


    The Club looks to pose in the ring doing the too sweet symbol as Lio Rush walks over to the group and looks to too sweet them as well. Lashley watches on as AJ gives Lio Rush a too sweet as commentary hype up a potential alliance between Lashley and Styles in the chamber? Lio turns around to Lashley smiling as AJ lifts up his steel chair and clocks Lio Rush in the back stunning Lashley's hype man. Lashley looks annoyed as he charges at AJ Styles but AJ catches him with the steel chair as well taking him down to the mat as he shouts instructions to Gallows and Anderson.


    Big Show says there will be no allies in the Elimination Chamber and AJ might be looking to weaken another of the larger threats before Stomping Grounds. Gallows and Anderson take down Lashley after a little bit of struggle before they get him into the air and plant him with a Magic Killer as The Club stand tall in the ring when suddenly:


    *GO HARD*


    Mustafa Ali sprints down the ramp getting loud cheers from the live crowd. He wastes no time springboarding off the ropes hitting both members of the Club with a diving crossbody wiping them out. AJ looks to come at him but Ali catches him with a dropkick taking the Phenomenal one down. Ali would climb to the top rope as he looks to hit AJ with 054 but Gallows moves AJ out of the way just in time causing Ali to crash and burn!


    Ali gets back to his feet as he sells his ribs as Karl Anderson clocks him from behind with a steel chair taking him down to the mat. AJ tells the pair to back off a moment as he grabs hold of Ali himself. Anderson then places the steel chair on the ground as AJ hits Mustafa Ali with the Styles clash onto the steel chair! AJ then gets to his feet as Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows walk over to their leader offering him a too sweet as the commentary team wonder who can stop the Club and will anyone in the Elimination Chamber be able to stop AJ Styles from becoming Universal champion!

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Smackdown Live:
    Laredo, Texas
    June 11th:


    Smackdown Live starts with a video package showing us what happened at the end of last week's Smackdown Live as Randy Orton sneak attacked Kofi Kingston after his WWE title match with Baron Corbin and laid the champion out with an RKO! We then cut to the commentary team who welcome us to Smackdown Live! Both men talk about last week's main event as Corey Graves is still complaining about Corbin's loss. Byron Saxton then tells us we have some footage of a confrontation that took place backstage after last week's show.

    We cut to Shane McMahon in his office with Baron Corbin and Elias. No one looks happy especially after the beating Elias and Shane took. Corbin meanwhile missed out on his chance to become the WWE champion. As they are stewing over a bad night for the Corporation the door slams open as Drew McIntyre storms into the room.

    Drew McIntyre: I WANT ROMAN!

    Baron Corbin gets to his feet and gets right in Drew McIntyre's face.

    Baron Corbin: Where were you during the main event!

    Drew McIntyre: Where was I? Is your head that far up your ass? Where were you when I got attacked by Roman Reigns?

    Shane McMahon: I mean you did tell us you didn't need our help and could do things on your own. Maybe now you will listen to me.

    Drew grabs the Smackdown Live commissioner and pins him up against the wall scaring the crap out of Shane McMahon.

    Shane McMahon: OK OK we all make mistakes. We should have stopped Roman but it's an important lesson for you to learn. We are stronger together.

    Drew McIntyre: Give me Roman.

    Shane McMahon: You read my mind Drew. (Gulp). It will be you versus Roman Reigns at the Great American Bash!

    Drew McIntyre: I have to wait 5 weeks to get my hands on Reigns?

    Shane McMahon: We need to hype up such a big match Drew. It is best for business and it itit will be a number one contender's match for the WWE title with the winner facing the WWE champion at Summerslam!

    Drew takes a moment to think about what Shane just said and puts him down. Shane starts spluttering and coughs like mad. Drew starts to leave the room but stops to point at Baron Corbin.

    Drew McIntyre: After I finish Reigns off for good, I'm going to do what you couldn't and win the WWE title.

    Drew McIntyre leaves the room as Baron Corbin looks to go after him but Elias and Shane McMahon make him think better of it.

    Shane McMahon: Baron just ignore him, he is a little heated right now. Once he calms down we will all get on the same page.

    We then cut back to the commentary team as Byron Saxton makes a quip about the arguments within the Corporation. Corey though writes it off as friends having minor disagreements. Both men then hype up the number one contender's match that has been announced for the Great American Bash as Byron adds we will hear from the Big Dog Roman Reigns next week as he has taken the week off to spend time with his family.

    *FIGHT*
    *WORLDS APART*


    A loud pop from the live crowd as the popular duo make their way to the ring with a pair of microphones in hand. Corey has a go at the pair for their attack on the Smackdown commissioner and Elias backstage before the main event last week whilst Byron says the pair were evening the odds. Both men stand in the ring as Sami Zayn waits in the ring whilst Kevin Owens grabs two steel chairs from under the ring. He then takes a moment to place them in the center of the ring as both men take a seat.

    Sami Zayn: Thanks Kevin you're such a good friend.

    Kevin Owens: Any time Sami but I think it's time for me and you to talk to these fans about someone we both hate...

    Both: Shane McMahon.

    Sami Zayn: I mean if anything we should like him. Without his greed and obsession overshadowing the roster we wouldn't have become friends again.

    Kevin Owens: He did bring us together but it has been nearly two years and it's time we got rid of the problem for good.

    Loud cheers from the crowd as the pair promise to get rid of Shane McMahon.

    Kevin Owens: We tried to beat him and his three goons at Money in the Bank but they had to cheat to beat us.

    Sami Zayn: But we are far from done with them.

    Kevin Owens: Last week, kicking Shane's ass felt so good.

    Sami Zayn: And once you do something like that once, you want to do it again. So Shane get out here right now.

    Loud cheers from the crowd but no sign of Shane McMahon.

    Kevin Owens: We can wait all night Shane. My kid would love nothing more then me sat here cracking jokes with Sami.

    Sami Zayn: Oh Kevin. That reminds me of that time we were in Canada and...

    *HERE COMES THE MONEY*

    Shane McMahon makes his way out onto the entrance ramp as he is joined by Elias, Baron Corbin, and Drew McIntyre as Drew has an angry glare on his face. Shane McMahon though looks to speak. Meanwhile, in the ring, both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn pick up the steel chairs holding them ready for a fight.


    Shane McMahon: I know you two like to cause trouble but last week was out of order. You cannot put your hand on your boss.

    Kevin Owens: Funny because we have lost count of the number of times we have beaten you up.

    Sami Zayn: And each time you step into this ring, taking the spotlight from other superstars, we will take action.

    Shane McMahon: And your solution to this is challenging me to a match?

    Kevin smirks.

    Kevin Owens: Not everything is about you, Shane.

    Sami Zayn: No we realize challenging you to a match only makes the problem worse.

    Kevin Owens: So instead we want to take care of two of your goons.

    Sami Zayn: And since Drew is busy with Reigns.

    Kevin Owens: Me and Sami want to face Elias and Baron Corbin in a tag team match.

    Corbin asks Shane McMahon for the microphone.

    Baron Corbin: You two want a piece of us? I've already pinned you, Sami.

    Sami Zayn: And the only reason you did that is due to Drew.

    Drew lets out a slight smile as Corbin looks angry.

    Baron Corbin: We don't need him to beat you so you're on.

    Both men look happy as they get ready for a fight however Shane McMahon takes back the microphone as he looks to speak.

    Shane McMahon: But we are not doing that match tonight in Texas.

    Elias: A star like me would never perform in such a worthless town!

    Cheap heat but it works drawing boos from the live crowd as Owens and Zayn look on rolling their eyes.

    Shane McMahon: No instead the match will take part at the Great American Bash.

    Kevin Owens: That's fine. But how about you 4 come to this ring right now and fight us?

    Drew seems ready to fight however Shane tells him no which annoys the Scotsman but he listens to Shane as all 4 choose to fight another day getting boos from the crowd. Zayn and Owens shake their heads happy to have at least gotten the match they wanted even if they could not get their hands on the Corporation tonight.

    As we return from the commercial break we can see No Way Jose partying with his conga line as he makes his way to the ring ahead of the first match of the night. The crowd are having fun and playing along with No Way Jose's music until:

    *FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES*


    Daniel Bryan makes his way out but he isn't dressed to compete. He is in his jeans and flannel shirt, still with the hemp title around his waist as Corey proclaims him the planet’s champion. Instead, it is Erick Rowan who is dressed to compete tonight as he steps into the ring as he stares down No Way Jose who tries to get the big man to dance but Rowan just snarls.

    Match 1: Erick Rowan w/Daniel Bryan vs No Way Jose


    Match Summary: This is a total squash match as Erick Rowan puts away No Way Jose in under two minutes finishing him off with an Iron Claw slam!

    Winner via pinfall: Erick Rowan (1:43)


    Corey Graves on commentary puts over how dominant that victory was as Erick Rowan refuses to let the referee raise his hand and instead waits for his friend Daniel Bryan. Daniel after raising his friend's hand makes his way to the timekeeper's area, pushing a few members of the conga line to the ground as he grabs a microphone and slides back into the ring.


    Daniel Bryan: You people are what is wrong with the planet!

    Daniel Bryan stands over the ropes pointing at the conga line as they try to help their leader No Way Jose to his feet.

    Daniel Bryan: You care more about partying then doing what is right! You people only care about having fun and don't care about the environment. The litter you leave everywhere at your festivals! The bottles you drink from and don't recycle!

    The conga line heads to the back taking No Way Jose with them as Daniel Bryan looks to continue his rant.

    Daniel Bryan: But I'm not just speaking to educate you people, no I need to speak about a coward who attacked us from behind last week. The Miz.

    Cheers from the fans which makes Bryan's face cringe with disgust.

    Daniel Bryan: The fact you cheer him shows just how fickle you sheep are.

    Boos from the live crowd.

    Daniel Bryan: Have you forgot what he has done in the past? You, people, have forgotten how he has treated me, you, anyone who gets in his way just because Shane McMahon ditched him like the loser he is.

    Boos from the live crowd as Daniel Bryan is getting heated.

    Daniel Bryan: And last week he attacked me for no reason like a coward. But that is the one thing that will never change Miz as you will always be a cowar...

    *I CAME TO PLAY*


    The Miz makes his way out looking fairly annoyed and he wastes no time storming to the ring with a microphone in his hand.


    The Miz: The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Daniel Bryan: See I would take this as a sign of you being brave but you know me. You know I won't sneak attack you.

    The Miz: Yeah I do know you well Daniel. I was your mentor.

    Daniel Bryan: NO NO you taught me nothing. Everything I achieved in this company was in spite of you being my pro.

    The Miz: You keep telling yourself that. I do know you well Bryan and I have never met someone as condescending as you in my life! You know why I attacked you last week?

    Daniel Bryan: Because you are a coward?

    The Miz: No. I punched you in the face because I love nothing more than punching you in that stupid face of yours!

    Cheers from the crowd as the two come face to face as Erick Rowan walks over to the pair making his presence felt.

    The Miz: But it had the added pleasure of screwing over your friend Shane McMahon and making sure Kofi Kingston got a fair fight. You think I haven't been rooting for Kofi? You and Shane McMahon are everything wrong with the WWE.But since you keep calling me a coward, I have a challenge for you. Me versus you one more time at the Great American Bash.

    Cheers from the crowd excited at the prospect of the two long term rivals going head to head one more time.

    Daniel Bryan: Me versus you one more time? Why would I lower myself to fighting you again?

    Loud boos from the crowd as Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan start to leave the ring.

    The Miz: Who's the coward now?

    Bryan smiles ever so slightly.

    Daniel Bryan: I have more important things to do then waste my time with someone like you. I have a planet to save.

    Bryan tosses the microphone down getting boos from the crowd as The Miz looks on unimpressed by Daniel Bryan turning down his challenge. Byron Saxton also calls Daniel Bryan a coward but Corey counters by saying Daniel Bryan has beaten The Miz numerous times. He has nothing to prove and has more important things to do like saving the planet.

    As we return from the commercial break we see Shane McMahon in his office as we see Buddy Murphy, Finn Balor and Ricochet all stood in his office.

    Shane McMahon: I am glad you three are here.

    Buddy Murphy: Not sure why you brought these two into your office Shane since I'll be getting my hands on Luke Harper.

    Ricochet: Hold up homeboy, I'm the one who will get his hands on Luke Harper first.

    Finn Balor: I think you two are forgetting who the champion around here is.

    Buddy Murphy: Oh I certainly haven't forgotten.

    Finn Balor and Buddy Murphy get nose to nose as Ricochet stands behind both men as he eyes up the Intercontinental title himself. Shane McMahon lets out a sigh not impressed with all three men arguing like this.

    Shane McMahon: I brought you three into my office as I am giving all three of you a chance to get your hands on Harper.

    All three men nod their heads happy to be getting a chance at payback.

    Shane McMahon: In a 6 man tag.

    Buddy Murphy: That is ridiculous, I don't want to team with these guys.

    Ricochet: Feelings mutual.

    Shane McMahon: I'm not saying you guys have to be friends but it is an opportunity for all 3 to get vengeance. Take it or leave it. It will be you three versus Luke Harper and two partners of his choosing.

    Finn Balor: It will have to do.

    Buddy Murphy: Just make sure you follow my lead champ.

    Buddy Murphy makes sure to pat the shoulder Finn Balor has his Intercontinental title on extra hard before walking off. We are then left with Ricochet and Finn Balor in the room as the two men stare each other down.

    Ricochet: Don't think I have forgotten about that title either Finn.

    Finn Balor: I wouldn't have it any other way Ricochet.

    We would then cut to the ring as Epico and Primo are stood ready for tag team action. Corey questions whether Buddy Murphy, Ricochet and Finn Balor will be able to co-exist whilst Saxton wonders who Harper will be able to find to team up with him.

    *LUCHA LUCHA*


    Lince
    Dorado and Gran Metalik sprint down to the ring getting a loud pop from the live crowd happy to see the fun-loving luchadors in action. Both members of the commentary team mention their recent rivalry with The Gentlemen being at one apiece and tonight could be a way for Lucha House Party to gain some momentum ahead of the tiebreaker. Epico starts for his team whilst Lince starts for Lucha House Party.


    Match 2: Lucha House Party vs Epico and Primo


    Match summary:
    Lucha House Party control most of the match, with Epico and Primo getting little offense in. Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado are too fast for the experienced pair and in the end, Metalik hits Primo with the Metalik Driver for the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Lucha House party (4:05)

    Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado celebrate their victory tonight in the ring as they get the fans to chant “LuchaLucha” along with their music as Byron mentions them as potential challengers in the future for the tag teams titles.? Corey responds they would need to beat the Gentlemen first. And speaking of the Gentlemen we cut backstage as we can see Aiden English and Gentleman Jack Gallagher have been watching the match. Neither man looks particularly impressed by what they have just seen.

    We return from the commercial break as we cut to one of the locker rooms as we can see Ember Moon sat down playing super smash bros. As she is doing this, Alexa Bliss walks into the room as Ember Moon picks up the win against whoever she was battling online. Alexa Bliss lets out a smile.


    Alexa Bliss: Good to see you pick up the win.

    Ember lets out a slight smile as Alexa sits on the chair next to her.

    Ember Moon: Have to start racking up the wins somewhere.

    Alexa Bliss: Listen we will get payback on the Riott Squad.

    Ember Moon: We need to get better as a team if we are going to beat them.

    Alexa Bliss: I'm going to level with you Ember. I never really been a team player around here. I have always looked after number one.

    Ember Moon: Well now you have me.

    Ember passes a controller to Alexa as she looks to change the game they are playing. Alexa though pauses for a moment.

    Alexa Bliss: Ember. What about the battle royal later tonight?

    Ember Moon: When it comes to the Riott Squad? We're a team. When it comes to a shot at the Smackdown Women's title. I will beat you like I'm about to beat you right now.

    Alexa Bliss: We'll see about that.

    Both women smile as they get their game face on as we cut to the commentary team at ringside. Bryon Saxton tells us that up next we are going to see a pre-recorded interview that took place yesterday as Cathy Kelly spoke to the Viper Randy Orton after he returned to Smackdown Live last week, attacking our WWE champion Kofi Kingston.

    We cut to the interview as Cathy Kelly is sat down across the table from the Viper Randy Orton who is dressed in a bunch of street clothes and is wearing the same hoodie he wore when he attacked Kofi Kingston last week.

    Cathy Kelly: Thank you for agreeing to this interview Randy.

    Randy doesn't say anything just staring at Cathy Kelly who is a little unnerved.

    Cathy Kelly: OK then. Last week you made your return attac...

    Randy Orton: Let me stop you there Cathy. I didn't return last week. No, I made my return at Money in the Bank when I punted Xavier Woods in his skull.

    Cathy Kelly: So you are taking credit for the attack on Xavier Woods?

    Randy Orton: Yes Cathy it was me and do you want to know why? I hate Kofi Kingston. I always have and I always will hate that stupid man.

    Cathy Kelly: But why attack Xavier if you have a problem with Kofi Kingston?

    Randy Orton: I like to play with my prey and the way to hurt someone like Kofi is to target his friends. I saw an opportunity to catch his friend when he was alone and I struck.

    Cathy Kelly: But why didn't you attack Kofi that night as well?

    Randy Orton: To make Kofi question himself. You see deep down Kofi knew who it was but tried to blame anyone else. The corporation, Daniel Bryan, Erick Rowan. Whoever else he could find because he doesn't want to face me. The moment he faces me, his fairytale ends.

    Cathy Kelly: So this is about the WWE title?

    Randy Orton glares at Cathy before responding.

    Randy Orton: Do you know how many times I have been a world champion?

    Cathy Kelly: Thirteen.

    Randy Orton: And who became the youngest champion in WWE history?

    Cathy Kelly: That would be you, Randy.

    Randy Orton: Correct when I was just 24 years old. Now, how many times has Kofi been a World champion?

    Cathy Kelly: Just once.

    Randy Orton: And how old was he when he finally achieved his dream? How old was he when he finally broke through the “glass ceiling” and became WWE champion?

    Cathy Kelly: 37 years old.

    Randy Orton: You see the difference? Now don't get me wrong Kofi is a great competitor but I'm the former legend killer turned legend. I am on another level to anyone else and I want my title back. So Kofi I know you will be watching this. You want payback for your friend Xavier? How about you put your WWE title on the line at the Great American Bash.

    Cathy Kelly: One last question Randy. You mentioned your hatred of Kofi. Why is that?

    Randy Orton scowls before speaking again.

    Randy Orton: Kofi and I have history. You could even say I'm the reason he never made it to the top. But the truth? He is too nice. And people like him make me sick. When I see someone like Kofi I want to take all of their hope and stomp it into the ground. Which is what I will do if he is stupid enough to accept my challenge.

    Cathy Kelly: Thanks for your time Randy.

    We cut to the commentary team at ringside as Byron talks about what we just saw and calls Randy Orton a vile monster. Corey agrees with Byron but says that is what has helped him become a thirteen-time world champion. We then cut to a corridor backstage as we can see Heavy Machinery making their way to the ring getting a pop from the live crowd. Corey tells us the Smackdown Live tag team titles match will be up next.

    Ad break


    *HEAVY*


    Heavy Machinery make their way out to the ring getting a decent pop from the live crowd. They look fired up as both men know how tough this match is going to be. Byron mentions Heavy Machinery might be one of the few tag teams who can match the War Raiders when it comes to size. Corey says they may match them for size but Bray Wyatt in the War Raiders corner could be the difference-maker.

    *WAR*


    The War Raiders march to the ring with their Smackdown tag team titles on their shoulders as Bray Wyatt leads the way to the ring with a sinister grin on his face. Otis understandably looks a little nervous as they stare down the War Raiders who step into the ring. Corey reminds us that the War Raiders lost their NXT tag team titles but they weren't pinned and no team has pinned them since coming to the WWE. Hanson steps in the ring for the War Raiders whilst Tucker Knight steps in for Heavy Machinery.


    Match 3: Smackdown tag team titles match: War Raiders (c) w/Bray Wyatt vs Heavy Machinery


    Match summary: The match starts off at a slightly slower pace due to the size of the two teams as they both try to overpower each other. However, as it goes along we see why the War Raiders became NXT and Smackdown Live tag team champions as they match their power with amazing speed. Heavy Machinery are on the ropes but Otis gets back into the match via a hot tag from Tucker and is a man on fire.

    Otis takes control of the match stunning not only the War Raiders but Bray Wyatt on the outside who seems slightly worried about what he can do. Otis gets both Hanson and Rowe down to the mat as he looks to go for the double caterpillar elbow but both men get out of the way in time. The War Raiders look to attack Otis as Tucker Knight runs in but they stop him in his tracks and hit him with a double chokeslam taking him out. The War Raiders then stalk Otis Dozovic and hit him with Fallout for the win!

    Winners via pinfall and still Smackdown tag team champions: The War Raiders (12:23)


    The War Raiders rise to their feet as they sell their exhaustion as Bray Wyatt joins them in the ring. Byron and Corey both give credit to Heavy Machinery for the fight they put up tonight but both wonder who can stop the War Raiders? As the War Raiders celebrate in the ring as we cut backstage as Kayla Braxton is stood ready for an interview.


    Kayla Braxton: Would you please welcome my guests at this time The Riott Squad.

    All three members of the Riott Squad walk into the shot with Ruby Riott leading front and center.

    Kayla Braxton: Tonight all three of you in the main event will compete for a shot at the Smackdown Women's title. Now last week Ruby you took on Becky Lynch and lost...

    Ruby Riott: I only lost due to Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon sticking their nose in where it doesn't belong. But it is fine because tonight the Riott Squad are in an environment in which we thrive. One built on chaos and disorder. And when I win tonight, nothing will stop me from becoming Smackdown Women's champion.

    Kayla Braxton: What is the plan if Sarah Logan or Liv Morgan wins?

    Before either woman can answer the question Logan steps forward taking the microphone.

    Sarah Logan: Get out of here this interview is over.

    Kayla does just that as she leaves the Riott Squad stood there shaking their heads.

    Ad break


    As we return from the commercial break we can see Eric Young is already in the ring ready for a match as the commentary team talk about the battle royale in the main event. Byron picks Asuka to win whilst Corey picks Charlotte Flair to walk out of the match as number one contender.


    *CRUISE CONTROL*


    Apollo Crews makes his way out to the ring getting a small pop from the live crowd. The commentary team talks about both men having a tough time in the last few months but a win tonight could give them some much-needed momentum.


    Match 4: Apollo Crews vs Eric Young


    Match summary:
    A fairly even match with both men looking to prove something tonight. Apollo Crews though in the end picks up the win as he hits Eric Young with The Chariot.


    Winner via pinfall: Apollo Crews (5:05)


    After the match finishes, Apollo Crews celebrates in the ring as he lets out a big goofy smile. However, as he is celebrating we hear a mixed reaction from the crowd as Randy Orton slides into the ring and RKO's Apollo Crews! Randy is not done as he starts wildly punching Crews on the mat laying into him.


    Byron Saxton on commentary asks why Randy Orton is doing this as Corey responds by saying Randy doesn't need a reason, he is doing it because he can. Randy is told to back off by a referee but the Viper totally ignores him as he makes his way to the corner and lines up Apollo Crews! The commentary team both say oh no as they know what is coming next as Randy Orton punts Apollo Crews in the skull!

    The crowd are booing Randy now as he stands in the ring over the prone Apollo Crews who is out cold as a bunch of medics rush to the ring to check on him. Randy lets out an evil smile happy with his handiwork as Big E and Kofi Kingston sprint down the ramp as they look to get their hands on the Viper but he slithers away escaping into the crowd. Big E kicks the ropes as Kofi demands a microphone looking to speak.

    Kofi Kingston: Randy, Randy get back here and face me like a man!

    Randy stands in the crowd as he smirks frustrating Kofi.

    Kofi Kingston: OK fine you want to run away. You haven't changed since the last time I fought you. You are the same vile bully you were back then. If you attacked me that is fine but to attack my boy, Xavier? To punt my friend in the skull? Nah you messed up. You want to fight me at the Great American Bash for this? You're on!

    A loud pop from the crowd as Kofi is clearly fired up. Big E then takes the microphone from his friend.

    Big E: When you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us. Next week me versus you and we will see if you even make it to the Great American Bash!

    Randy Orton in the crowd smirks, happy to have gotten under the skin of the New Day as he leaves through the crowd. Meanwhile, both Kofi and Big E look on angry at the Viper before they look to help the medical team with Apollo Crews

    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial break we cut to a dark room as we once again see Bray Wyatt with the Smackdown tag team champions as they stand behind him with their title belts over their shoulders.


    Bray Wyatt: We told you. No one is ready for the war to come. And people are just starting to see our power.

    Bray lets out a grin as we see Luke Harper appear, the former ally of Bray Wyatt.

    Bray Wyatt: Even old friends who I set free, are starting to see our power.

    Luke Harper: I need a favor.

    Luke Harper bends a knee before his former master. Bray lets out a creepy smile before placing his hand on Harper's shoulder.

    Bray Wyatt: I'm a kind god. You have grown so strong I will be happy to lend you my tools of war for a week.

    We then cut to a hallway backstage as Becky Lynch is making her way to the ring but she is stopped by the Boss 'n' Hug connection which gets a huge pop as 3 of the 4 horsewomen are stood next to each other. Banks and Becky stare at each other almost waiting for the other to speak first.

    Becky Lynch: Banks2belts?

    Sasha Banks: Hey with these I can follow you to Raw or Smackdown and cash this in when the time is right.

    Bayley: I mean you're going to give her a fair warning right?

    Banks ignores Bayley as she stares at Becky who smiles.

    Becky Lynch: Bayley a lesson I learned a long time ago, keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    She smirks at Banks who glares at Becky.

    Sasha Banks: What is that supposed to mean?

    Becky Lynch: It can mean whatever you want it to mean Sasha but before you try to become a champ champ, hold onto one belt for a while.

    Banks looks furious as Becky walks to the ring with a smug smile on her face as the commentary team tells us The Man Becky Lynch will be joining us on commentary for the main event up which is next.

    Ad break


    We return from the commercial break as we can see the Smackdown Women's roster has already made their way to the ring. Byron Saxton informs us that next week the War Raiders will be teaming with Luke Harper to take on Buddy Murphy, Finn Balor, and Ricochet in a 6 man tag. Corey says that is not all as the WWE title match for the Great American Bash is official as Kofi Kingston goes head to head with the Viper Randy Orton. Bryon adds that also next week's main event will be Big E versus Randy Orton as Big E looks to also avenge his friend Xavier Woods.


    *CELTIC INVASION*


    Becky Lynch makes her way over to the commentary table as she joins Byron Saxton and Corey Graves. The crowd let out a Becky2belts chant as the competitors in the ring all have their eyes on the prize, Becky and her Smackdown Women's title. Charlotte can be heard in the ring shouting she is taking what is hers, whilst
    Asuka looks like a woman possessed as she stares at the champion. Byron asks Becky who she would like to face and she says just wants to fight the best promising to slap the head off of whichever dope wins tonight.


    Main event: Number one contender's battle royal for the Smackdown Women's title


    Entrants:
    Alexa Bliss, Alicia Fox, Asuka, Billie Kay, Carmella, Charlotte, Dana Brooke, Ember Moon, Isla Dawn, Lacey Evans, Liv Morgan, Nikki Cross, Peyton Royce, Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan

    Isla Dawn by Asuka

    Sarah Logan by Alexa Bliss

    Liv Morgan by Ember Moon

    Ember Moon by Ruby Riott

    Ruby Riott by Alexa Bliss

    Final four:

    We get to the final four of the battle royal as we see Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Charlotte, and Lacey Evans stood in the four corners of the ring ready to fight. Becky comments on all 4 women with most of the praise going to Asuka and insults going to Charlotte Flair as Becky says she has beaten her so many times she has lost count. In the ring, Alexa gets Asuka down and tries to jump off the ropes looking for a springboard moonsault as Charlotte bundles Bliss out of the ring getting boos from the crowd.

    It is down to 3 as Lacey Evans is down in one corner of the ring, leaving Asuka and Charlotte to face off in the center. Charlotte talks a lot of trash mocking the Empress of tomorrow. Asuka does not take this well and starts laying into Charlotte. Charlotte though starts to make a fightback clocking Asuka as both women are evenly matched. Noticeably Lacey stays in the corner letting the two top women on Smackdown fight it out. Both women get near the ropes as Charlotte throws Asuka over the top rope and starts gloating but Asuka has skinned the cat! Charlotte starts talking trash to Lacey Evans who gets ready for a fight as Asuka climbs back into the ring and tosses Charlotte out of the ring stunning the Queen!

    It is now just Asuka and Lacey Evans left as Charlotte throws a strop on the outside of the ring, arguing with the referees. Both women battle for a little while but Asuka is in total control until Charlotte jumps on the apron distracting Asuka! Asuka kicks Charlotte in the head getting rid of her but Lacey pounces and dumps Asuka over the top rope pulling off a massive upset!

    Winner and Number one contender for the Smackdown Women's title: Lacey Evans (11:53)


    Asuka
    is in shock as Charlotte Flair can be seen smirking as he leaves up the entrance ramp as Asuka is sat outside the ring in shock. Lacey meanwhile mocks the crowd as she celebrates in the ring. Corey asks Becky how she feels facing the Lady Lacey Evans as Becky responds by saying she is a fresh challenger but she will beat her just like all the rest. Becky leaves the commentary desk and walks to the ring, noticeably walking past Asuka who stares at her before kicking the barricade as Becky Lynch comes face to face with Lacey Evans. Becky holds both her belts in the air as the show fades to black.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Raw:
    June 17th:
    Los Angeles, California

    We start the go-home edition of Monday Night Raw as we get a graphic telling us that this took place earlier today. We can see Paige is in her office as Lio Rush slams the door open. Paige does not look impressed but we see Lio is joined by Bobby Lashley who looks in a foul mood.

    Paige: What do you want Lio?

    Lio Rush: What do I want? What do I want? That is no way to speak to the man of the hour, the man with the power, the 24-carat gold...

    Paige: Lio get to the point.

    Lio Rush: We want payback on the Club tonight. Last week they made me and the main man look like chumps!

    ???: You ain't the only one who wants a piece of them.

    Mustafa Ali walks into the room joining the pair as Lio Rush stares at the heart of Monday Night Raw.

    Lio Rush: Listen here you can wait to get your hands on the pair. Me and my main man are calling dibs on fighting the Club tonight. You can wait until after you lose at Elimination Chamber to fight them.

    Mustafa Ali: Is that so? I mean I would rather hear it from the man himself.

    Ali stares down the imposing Bobby Lashley showing no fear of Walking Armageddon.

    Paige: Well lets come to a compromise. Bobby Lashley, you will be teaming with Mustafa Ali tonight to take on the Club!

    Lio Rush: What? This is ridiculous.

    Paige: My decision is final Lio.

    Lio shakes his head as Bobby Lashley stands there not caring about this development as Lio Rush leaves the room. However, Lashley turns to Mustafa Ali.

    Bobby Lashley: You better pull your weight out there or else.

    Bobby Lashley walks off leaving Mustafa Ali stood there as we cut to the commentary team at ringside who welcome us to the show. Michael Cole hypes up the fact we will be hearing from the Olympic legend himself Kurt Angle later on tonight. Big Show then tells us we are starting off with a tag team match as EC3 and Bobby Roode take on the Universal champion Seth Rollins and a partner of his choosing.

    *TOP ONE PERCENT*


    EC3 makes his way out to the ring getting boos from the crowd as he is joined by his manager/ assistant Drake Maverick as Big Show talks about Bobby Roode attacking Seth Rollins after EC3's singles match last week. Michael Cole meanwhile tells us EC3 will be looking to avenge his loss and get a win over Seth Rollins the current Universal champion.


    *GLORIOUS DOMINATION*


    Bobby Roode then makes his way out getting boos from the crowd as well but unlike EC3 he has a microphone in his hand as he looks to speak.


    Bobby Roode: Tonight the glorious one will give you an Elimination Chamber preview. Tonight I will show you what happens when someone as glorious as me faces a pretender like Seth Rollins.

    Boos from the crowd as Bobby Roode steps into the ring.

    Bobby Roode: And the rest will all fall before the glorious one as I take this show to new heights when I become the Universal champion!

    *BURN IT DOWN /THE SECOND COMING*


    Seth Rollins makes his way out as he cuts off the cocky Bobby Roode as he walks out onto the entrance ramp with a microphone of his own and his Universal title around his waist.


    Seth Rollins: Listen, Bobby Roode, I used to be like you. However now I just let my wrestling do the talking. But let me introduce my partner for tonight Tyler Breeze!

    *#MMMGORGEOUS*


    Tyler Breeze makes his way out getting a decent reaction from the live crowd as Michael Cole reminds us they teamed up just over a month ago on Monday Night Raw and picked up the victory over Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley. Both men climb into the ring as Seth Rollins starts for his team whilst Bobby Roode steps into the ring for his team.


    Match 1: Seth Rollins and Tyler Breeze vs Bobby Roode and EC3 w/Drake Maverick


    Match summary:
    Seth Rollins makes his way over to attack Bobby Roode but Roode immediately tags in EC3 getting boos from the live crowd. Roode shouts over to Seth Rollins telling the architect he will do this on his terms, not yours. Rollins just shrugs and starts battling EC3 in the center of the ring. It is a fairly even match with Rollins giving Tyler Breeze time to shine as well. Breeze also has his own ax to grind after EC3 and Drake Maverick's comments last week.


    Breeze and Rollins are in control in the early stages of the match but Drake Maverick helps turn the tide for EC3 by tripping up Breeze from the outside allowing Roode and EC3 to isolate the supermodel and they start working him over in the corner of the ring. Tyler Breeze keeps trying to get to Rollins so he can make the hot tag but each attempt is cut off by the pair as they keep grinding Breeze in the corner of the ring.

    Breeze is finally able to get free as he looks to make it to the corner and looks to make the hot tag but Drake Maverick pulls Seth Rollins off the ring apron! Seth is more annoyed then damaged by this cheap move from a very small man. He picks up EC3's manager and buckle bombs him into the ring apron wiping him out for the rest of the match! However, the opportunity for Tyler Breeze to tag back in is gone as EC3 starts working over him once again.

    Breeze is looking in real trouble but he fights back and makes the hot tag eventually bringing Seth back into the match and from there it is academic. He takes care of EC3 sending him from the ring with a ripcord knee leaving him and legal man Bobby Roode alone in the ring. Roode tries to go for the glorious DDT but Rollins counters and kicks him in the gut as he connects with a DDT planting Roode! Rollins quickly follows it up by running off the ropes and hitting the curb stomp. Seth makes the cover 1 2 Breeze stops EC3 on the outside with a supermodel kick 3! Rollins and Breeze pick up the win!

    Winners via pinfall: Seth Rollins and Tyler Breeze (14:29)


    Seth Rollins and Tyler Breeze share a hug in the ring having picked up the win tonight as commentary put over how important it is for Seth to pin one of his rivals in the Elimination Chamber 6 days away from defending his Universal title! As the pair celebrate in the
    ring we can see EC3 and Bobby Roode have slid out of the ring with Roode calling Rollins pinning him a fluke as he retreats up the entrance ramp.


    Ad break


    When we return from the commercial break we can see Seth Rollins holding his Universal title a bit sweaty after his match as he is with his partner tonight Tyler Breeze.


    Seth Rollins: Good job man, I knew I could rely on you.

    Tyler Breeze: Thanks Champ.

    Tyler Breeze takes a quick selfie before he walks off as Renee Young walks over.

    Renee Young: Seth, how are you feeling ahead of your Universal title match this Sunday inside the Elimination Chamber?

    Seth Rollins: Honestly? I'm feeling excited. Since winning this belt I promised to be a fighting champion. Something Brock Lesnar has never been. I will step into the Chamber and face 5 of the best wrestlers on the planet. And you know what they say? Steel sharpens steel. And trust me I plan on burning it down and keeping my Universal title.

    Seth Rollins walks off as we cut back to the commentary team who hype up the Elimination Chamber as Big Show talks about how challenging a match it can be.

    *FOR THE BETTER*


    Drew
    Gulak makes his way to the ring as he has a microphone in his hand and looks ready to speak. He has a scowl on his face as Michael Cole reminds us he will be challenging for the Cruiserweight title at Stomping Grounds! Once inside the ring, he starts pacing around the ring as he looks to speak.


    Drew Gulak: In 6 days time I finally achieve my goal. In 6 days time, I get the Cruiserweight title and I can finally save the Cruiserweight division. When I finally become champion I will turn it into a no-fly zone. I will show everyone the correct way to wrestle.

    Drew points towards the titantron as it shows him in the past in his goofy suit and his no-fly zone sign from 205 Live years ago.

    Drew Gulak: I tried to do things the nice way, I tried to be nice as I tried to save the brand from itself but it collapsed because of champions like Tony Nese!

    Slight cheers for the name of Tony Nese which makes Drew shake his head.

    Drew Gulak: But he was just a symptom of the problem infecting this division. No, the problem starts with Rey Mysterio!

    Loud cheers for the legend of the Cruiserweight division.

    Drew Gulak: Rey Mysterio has a false legacy and has taught the wrestlers of today the wrong way to wrestle. After Stomping Grounds I will show them the correct path!After this Sunday the kids of today will know the correct way to wrestle when I bring Rey's reign to an end and then...

    *BOOYAKA 619*

    The Cruiserweight champion makes his way out having heard enough as Drew Gulak snarls at him. Rey has a microphone in his hand as he slides inside the ring.


    Rey Mysterio: Drew what you fail to realize is, I don't tell anyone to wrestle like me. In fact, I would teach people to wrestle their own style. If a more technical style works for someone they should use it, if someone is better at high-flying and taking risks then I encourage that. If I inspire people to wrestle a certain way...

    Drew Gulak: You inspire people to take risks and put their bodies on the line.

    Rey Mysterio: I ain't going to deny I have had many injuries throughout my career but this is a tough business and that is what I have been teaching my son.

    Drew at this point looks at Rey and gives him a filthy look.

    Drew Gulak: You're teaching your son? You're showing him how to wrestle? You're passing on your unsafe style to the next generation.

    Rey Mysterio: I'm passing on the luchador legacy onto my son! You can choose to wrestle how you want but it's time to stop insulting my heritage.

    Drew Gulak: Or what?

    Rey responds by punching him in the face causing Drew to fall to the mat getting a pop from the crowd. Rey looks to go for some more but Drew rolls out of the ring, holding his jaw as he retreats up the ramp.

    Drew Gulak: You will pay for that I promise!

    Drew tosses the microphone to the floor as Rey Mysterio turns to the fans and holds his Cruiserweight title in the air to the delight of the live crowd. Big Show tells us as great as Rey is he will need to be on his A-game to defeat a fired up Drew Gulak at Stomping Grounds. Michael Cole counters that Drew may have fired up Rey by mocking his heritage.

    Ad break


    *REBELLION*

    As we return from the commercial break we hear the theme song of the Ascension play as they get no reaction from the crowd on the way to the ring. Michael Cole mentions last we got new Raw tag team champions and a win tonight could put either of these teams in contention for a title match in the future.


    *ANCIENT SPIRIT*

    Mod Note: (Wanted a different theme for this team and did not want two team coming out to LuchaLucha)


    The Lucha Dragons make their way out getting a good pop from the crowd as Big Show mentions that not only will both men be looking to get to a tag team titles shot but both will also have their eyes potentially at the Cruiserweight title with Kalisto being a former Cruiserweight champion. Viktor would step into the ring looking to start for the Ascension whilst Sin Cara starts for the Lucha Dragons.

    Match 2: Lucha Dragons vs The Ascension


    Match Summary:
    A decent match but this is more a showcase for the Lucha Dragons who never look in any trouble and in the end Kalisto puts away Viktor with a Salida Del sol as Sin Cara takes care of Konnor sending him to the outside.

    Winners via pinfall: Lucha Dragons (6:14)

    The
    Lucha Dragons after the match celebrate in the ring as the Ascension sulk off unhappy to have lost. Michael Cole on commentary mentions that Kalisto has picked up a win two weeks in a row. Big Show hypes the possibility of a future match between Kalisto and Rey Mysterio. However, as they are talking we cut to a corridor backstage as we see the WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle making his way to the ring to the delight of the live crowd. Michael Cole says we are going to hear from Kurt Angle next.

    *MEDAL*

    A loud pop from the live crowd starts up as Kurt Angle makes his way out. The crowd starts up the signature “YOU SUCK” chant. Big Show says the battles he had with this man were some of the hardest of his career and he is a worthy member of the hall of fame. Michael Cole on commentary speculates what brings Kurt Angle out here to speak. Kurt has now stepped into the ring as the “YOU SUCK” chants carry on bringing a smile to his face.


    Kurt Angle: I can always count on you fans to give me a warm welcome.

    Kurt lets out a smile.

    Kurt Angle: It has been a few months since you last saw me and whilst my retirement did not go the way I wanted...

    A “one more match” chant starts up with the fans unhappy with Angle's last match being against Baron Corbin. Angle can't help but smile at this.

    Kurt Angle: Sorry guys but I think I made the right call retiring when I did. You see I get to spend more time looking after my kids. Even Jason Jordan.

    Small cheers for the reference to that storyline two years ago.

    Kurt Angle: And I also get time to sit back and watch the shows from the comfort of my home and I started to think about how I can help the future of the WWE since I'm no longer Raw general manager. And there is one superstar in particular that I have been impressed with whilst watching. And that superstar is...

    *DESTROYER*


    The mood changes very quickly as Samoa Joe gets a mixed reaction leaning on cheers due to being in his home state. Joe though is not in a happy mood as he walks down to the ring with a scowl on his face as he joins Kurt Angle in the ring. Michael Cole mentions these two men have a storied history outside of WWE and know each other very well.


    Samoa Joe: Kurt I respect the fact you came all the way to Raw to praise me but I already know how much you respect me already. We have been to war against each other and know each other inside out.

    Kurt Angle: Joe you're a great athlete and one of the toughest I have ever faced that is damn true but I didn't come here to praise you.

    Joe who was smiling before this quickly becomes very angry as Angle continues.

    Kurt Angle: No I came out here as I'm impressed by Chad Gable.

    Cheers from the live crowd.

    Kurt Angle: The kid reminds me of myself when I was younger. A former Olympian with a great background. The guy has all the technical ability in the world and a lot of heart. To survive in a match against you takes skill.

    Samoa Joe: All anyone can do when fighting me is survive.

    Kurt Angle: Well we both know that I know how to beat you.

    That brings an angry look to Joe's face but he quickly starts to smile.

    Samoa Joe: You're right Angle. You have beaten me in the past but now you're too broken to beat me. Psychically and mentally.

    Kurt Angle: But Chad ain't!

    Samoa Joe: If you think Gable is taking this title from me, you're as mentally soft as he is. But let me put how soft he is to the test.

    BAM! Joe clocks Kurt Angle is the head with the microphone getting loud boos. Joe tosses the microphone aside as he starts to attack the Hall of Famer hitting him with some lethal strikes. Michael Cole on commentary is going mental as Big Show says someone needs to stop this. Joe though is not done just striking Angle as he grabs hold of him and locks in a Coquina clutch choking the legend out. Big Show at this point starts to take his headset off having seen enough but before he can get up...


    *ELITE*


    Chad Gable sprints down to the ring, running faster
    then he has ever run in his life. He has a steel chair in hand as he slides into the ring but Joe smartly lets go of the Coquina clutch and retreats up the ramp, smiling like an evil bastard as he leaves. Chad Gable thinks about going after the United States champion but instead puts the chair down and checks on Kurt Angle! Both commentators talk about the attack and are grateful Chad Gable was able to chase off Joe. Meanwhile, Kurt Angle is starting to come to clearly still feeling the effects of the brutal attack by the United States champion.

    *TUSK*

    Rhyno makes his way to the ring in a serious mood. Michael Cole on commentary mentions Rhyno has had trouble picking up wins in recent times but tonight he will be looking to overcome the cocky returning Cruiserweight Noam Dar.


    *WEEKEND ROCKSTAR*


    Noam Dar makes his way out with a microphone in his hand. He stands at the top of the ramp chewing his gum as he smirks. Rhyno tells him to get in the ring already but Dar shakes his head putting up his hand.


    Noam Dar: Now big fella, you need to hold your horses. I have a few things I want to say.

    This just seems to piss Rhyno off in the ring but Dar doesn't care as he looks to continue.

    Noam Dar: Now the fans have been waiting for my return and of course I choose the great city of Los Angeles to make my presence felt.

    Cheap pop from the crowd as Dar carries on.

    Noam Dar: I mean this city has no real stars.

    And now it is cheap heat as Dar starts to make his way to the ring.

    Noam Dar: But tonight I will give you a supernova performance.

    Noam Dar steps into the ring still chatting shit.

    Noam Dar: And put this washed-up old man...

    Rhyno takes Dar's head off with a clothesline! Rhyno then looks at the referee with an angry snarl and the ref smartly chooses to call for the bell getting this match underway!

    Match 3: Noam Dar vs Rhyno


    Match summary:
    Rhyno batters Noam Dar in the early going with Dar on the ropes in the opening few moments. However, Dar dodges a GORE attempt causing Rhyno to collide with the ring post! Dar looks to take advantage of this as he goes after the legs of Rhyno viciously and desperately! And this proves to be the difference-maker. Rhyno as the rest of the match goes on would struggle more and more to stay in control with his leg constantly giving way. In the end, Dar locks in the Champagne superkneebar and Rhyno is forced to tap out!


    Winner via submission: Noam Dar (6:40)


    Noam Dar lets go of the hold as he jumps to his feet and celebrates like he won the Universal title in the main event of
    Wrestlemania! Rhyno grits his teeth and slams the mat selling the pain his leg is in. Big Show gives credit to Dar for the performance he put in and his smart strategy of targeting the legs of the bigger man. We then cut to the backstage area as we can see the Boss 'n' Hug connection getting ready for their match later on tonight.


    Sasha Banks: Tonight is really important Bayley so just follow my lead. We can get our hands on Fire and Desire and get payback for their attack on you.

    Bayley: But what about Shayna's mates down in NXT?

    Sasha takes a moment to think before responding.

    Sasha Banks: Whilst it is most likely Fire and Desire, we need to consider all the options and Shayna is best mates with Ronda who is jealous of the fact we are the real 4 horsewomen.

    Bayley: Really?

    Sasha Banks: Yes Bayley, so they may have attacked you as well. And there is other members of that ladder match... Bayley people will do whatever it takes to win even the ones you least suspect.

    Kairi Sane: Hey guys

    Kairi Sane walks into the room smiling and waving at the pair. Bayley smiles too as Sasha has a blank not at all bothered expression on her face.

    Kairi Sane: Are you ready to team tonight?

    Bayley: Of course Kairi.

    Bayley hugs Kairi who hugs her back as Sasha Banks looks at the pair with disgust.

    Sasha Banks: Of course we are ready to team Kairi. These belts mean we are the best team in WWE today. The real question is are you ready?

    Sasha looks really intense as she gets in Kairi's face who innocently smiles.

    Kairi Sane: I am more than ready.


    Kairi high fives Bayley. She then goes to high five Sasha Banks who just leaves her hanging.


    Sasha Banks: Good. Just leaves Fire and Desire to us.


    Sasha goes back to getting ready as Bayley and Kairi Sane shrug looking a little confused as we cut back to the commentary team at ringside. Michael Cole then informs after the commercial break we are going to see a pre-recorded interview that Renee Young had with Beth Phoenix earlier in the week.

    As we return from the commercial
    break we cut to Renee Young sat down at a table and across from her is the challenger for the Raw Women's title at Stomping Grounds Beth Phoenix.

    Renee Young: Thank you for agreeing to this interview Beth.

    Beth Phoenix: No problem Renee. It is always a pleasure.

    Renee Young: So you're 6 days away from competing for the Raw Women's title at Stomping Grounds. But less then 3 months ago you weren't thinking about even stepping in the ring.


    Beth Phoenix: That is right Renee. I never had plans to return to the ring. I was happy. I had settled down with my darling husband Edge and we have kids at home. But then the Samoan Slaughterhouse attacked me and my close friend Natalya.


    Renee Young: What was it like stepping into the ring once again at Wrestlemania?


    Beth Phoenix: It felt great. There is no feeling like it and even though we lost out, I knew I wasn't done yet. Not after getting another taste.


    Renee Young: And then you went onto Money in the Bank where you took on the Iiconics but...


    Beth Phoenix: I think you are missing part of the story as this was when Becky started to run her mouth.


    Renee Young: And that lead to you not being in the right frame of mind when you took on the Iiconics. Is that fair to see Beth?


    Beth Phoenix: I let my temper get the best of me. I have never been known for being calm. Hell, I'm called the Glamazon for a reason. When I was here, I came here to destroy all the divas in my path. But my temper cost me and my friend.

    Renee Young: And last week you ended up brawling with Becky into the crowd. Do you think your temper could cost you this Sunday?


    Beth Phoenix: In a normal match? It might. See I want nothing more than to beat the crap out of Becky for what she has said about my husband.


    Beth takes a moment to breathe in and out.

    Beth Phoenix: The comments she had made about Edge, well it makes me want to end her career but I know why she is doing it. There is no malice in her comments. She is trying to get in my head and get me to fight her. But the mistake she has made is firing me up and in a street fight, there is no referee to stop me if I lose it. I can keep beating you and beating you and beating you. And only I can say when it stops.


    Renee Young: What do you think of Becky in the ring as a competitor?


    Beth Phoenix: For all her mind games, she is one of the best around maybe of all time. Her, Ronda and Charlotte were in the main event of Wrestlemania for a reason. But I will overpower her and defeat her.


    Renee Young: And lastly what are your plans for the future if you win?


    Beth Phoenix: I'm not thinking that far ahead. This Sunday I take the Raw Women's title and become a five-time Women's champion. After that, we shall see.


    Renee Young: Thanks for your time Beth.

    Beth Phoenix: My pleasure Renee.

    Beth gets up and shakes hands with Renee Young as the interview comes to a close.

    *OBSESSION*

    Once we return from commercial
    break we can hear the music for the freakin legend herself Mickie James as she makes her way out to the ring getting boos from the live crowd. Michael Cole reminds us that on the Stomping Grounds pre-show we will see Mickie James and Kairi Sane go one on one.


    *GOLDEN GODDESS*


    Fire and Desire make their way to the ring getting a few boos from the crowd. Sonya Deville looks fired up whilst Mandy poses and shows off her body to the crowd feeling herself ahead of this 6 women tag team match. Big Show once again brings up Sasha Banks's accusations which the pair have denied.


    *THE NEXT VOYAGE*


    Kairi Sane makes her way out next getting a decent pop from the crowd as she looks through her telescope at the three women in the ring, keeping her eye on the prize. She waits on the entrance ramp for her partners to make their way out as well.


    *SKY'S THE LIMIT*

    *TURN IT UP*


    The Boss 'n' Hug connection makes their way out last getting a good reaction from the live crowd as both women show off their title belts with Sasha Banks also holding her Money in the Bank briefcase in the air. All three women walk to the ring ready for the match as they step into the ring. We see Sonya step into the ring for her team as Bayley steps forward for their team looking to get her hands on the
    person they think attacked her at Money in the Bank.


    Match 4: Mickie James, Fire and Desire vs Kairi Sane and Boss 'n' Hug connection


    Match summary:
    Bayley goes right after Sonya as both women fire off several strikes. However, after the initial flurry, Sonya takes control due to her MMA experience. Banks though using her smarts takes down Sonya allowing Bayley to make a tag. From there the match has frequent tags in and out with both teams being fairly evenly matched throughout this encounter.


    In the closing stages of the match, Kairi Sane and Mickie James are the legal competitors. However, the match has descended into a full-on 6 woman brawl. The Boss 'n' Hug connection takes care of Fire and Desire sending them out of the ring and carry on the battle on the outside. This leaves Kairi Sane and Mickie alone in the ring. Kairi takes down Mickie hitting her with a jumping DDT before she makes her way over to the top rope taking a moment before flying off and hitting the In-sane elbow picking up the win 6 days away from Stomping Grounds!


    Winners via pinfall: Kairi Sane and Hug 'n' Boss connection (11:30)

    After the match,
    Kairi Sane rises to her feet super happy as she is quickly joined in the ring by the Boss 'n' Hug Connection. Sasha Banks poses for the crowd as Bayley hugs Kairi Sane. Sasha Banks looks on as she shows a tinge of anger before hugging her friend Bayley. Meanwhile, on the outside, the heels trash talk from the outside as Michael Cole wonders if we will see Kairi and the Boss 'n' Hug Connection win this Sunday?

    When we return from the commercial
    break we are in what looks like a night club as we can hear party music playing in the background as we focus on the Street Profits who are surrounded by several girls who are having fun.


    Angelo Dawkins: Hello we are the Street Profits.

    Montez Ford: You might know us from previous promotions such as N X T.

    Angelo Dawkins: Where we brought the swag back to Wednesday nights.

    Montez Ford: But now we see another brand in desperate need of some swag in the tag team division.

    Angelo Dawkins: We look at the Monday Night Raw and they're missing that spark.

    Montez Ford: You need a tag to bring some life to the division.

    Angelo Dawkins: But we want one thing when we arrive. Tell them, Ford.

    Montez Ford: We want the smoke.

    Angel Dawkins: Tell em.

    Montez Ford: We want the smoke.

    Everyone: We want the smoke. We want the smoke. We want the smoke.

    The Street Profits

    Bringing the swag back to Monday Night Raw
    Coming Soon


    We cut back to the commentary team as Michael Cole puts over the Street Profits and mentions their popularity on NXT. Michael Cole then tells us up next we will see Becky Lynch as she sat down for a pre-recorded interview with Renee Young. We cut to the interview as we see Becky with her feet up on the table sitting across from Renee Young. Becky has both her title belts on her shoulders and a cocky look on her face as Renee starts the interview.


    Renee Young: Thank you for agreeing to this interview Becky.

    Becky Lynch: The man is always happy to talk Renee.

    Renee Young: How did it feel maineventingWrestlemania?


    Becky Lynch: It felt great. Slapping the heads of two dopes and becoming the champ champ felt right. But I don't like to look back, I want to take this division to new heights and if I have to carry it on my back I will.


    Renee Young: And you have had a tough time since you won both those belts.

    Becky Lynch: Which is what I want. I'm not here for an easy time. I'm a fighter and I'm always looking for the next real challenge. Having both these belts mean I have two targets on my back and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Renee Young: What was it like fighting twice in one night at Money in the Bank?

    Becky Lynch: I faced arguably the toughest fighter I have ever faced in Asuka.

    Renee Young: Tougher then Ronda Rousey or Charlotte?

    Becky Lynch: I would say she is tougher than that little weirdo. Asuka until Money in the Bank I had never beaten her and I was kind of rooting for her to win last week. I want my rubber match.

    Renee Young: And fighting Mickie James?


    Becky Lynch: Mickie wasn't easy to beat but it left me craving a proper legend.


    Renee Young: Which brings us to your opponent at Stomping Grounds Beth Phoenix.


    Becky nods letting out a slight smile.


    Renee Young: Now you have made some comments about her husband Edge which has gotten under Beth's skin.


    Becky Lynch: Oh what my old pal Edge? See this all goes back to when Edge had me on his Cutting Edge show last year.


    We cut from the interview as we see a replay of the Becky Lynch's appearance on the cutting Edge where she told him to mind his neck on the way out of her ring.


    Becky Lynch: See Edge was trying to help me but I don't need help. But do you want to know why I keep bringing up his name? Because I'm trying to fire Beth up. I don't want Beth to be a shadow of the force she used to be.


    We know she images of Beth dominating the divas of the past, showing her destroying people like Kelly Kelly, Eve, Laycool, etc. We cut back to Becky.


    Becky Lynch: I want the angry Beth, I want her to give me her best and I want the real Glamazon! I don't want to just beat the best of today but the best of the past too!

    Renee Young: Would you be interested in defending the title against other legends like Trish Stratus?

    Becky Lynch: I want to go down as the best of all time and that means beating the best. Trish was the top star in the women's division. Now it's me. If she wants the Man to slap her around a bit she is welcome to come for my belts. And I will prove that the Women's division has never been stronger with The Man at the top.

    Renee Young: And my last question, how do you feel about your Raw Women's title match being a Street fight?

    Becky Lynch: It means nothing can stop us from finding out who is the better woman. Like I said I don't just want to be the best today. I want to be the best ever. And trust me, Renee, if there is one thing I know how to do, it is fight!

    Renee Young: Thank you for your time, Becky.

    Becky smiles before standing up with both her belts on her shoulders and with a cocky smile on her face.

    *OMEN IN THE SKY*

    As we return from the commercial break we hear the music for the Raw tag team champions as of last week and they are joined by their leader AJ Styles. Michael Cole puts the pair over and says that AJ will be looking to leave Stomping Grounds with the Universal title leaving the group draped in gold.


    *DOMINANCE*


    Bobby Lashley makes his way out next as he stares at the group in the ring, looking for payback after their attack at the end of last week's Raw. Lio Rush can be heard trash-talking the trio as the larger man makes his way into the ring. Big Show mentions that Lio might be best shutting up before his mouth gets him into trouble.


    *GO HARD*


    Mustafa Ali makes his way out last getting a pop from the live crowd as he sprints to the ring and jumps over the top rope ready to get his hands on The Club. AJ though remains cocky as ever, trash-talking not just Bobby Lashley but Mustafa Ali as well. AJ and Lio make their way to the outside going in their team's corner as the referee tells both
    men he will keep an eye on them. Meanwhile, in the ring Mustafa Ali tells Bobby he is starting the match whilst Karl Anderson starts for the Club.


    Match 5: Mustafa Ali and Bobby Lashley w/Lio Rush vs The Club w/AJ Styles


    Match summary:
    Mustafa Ali starts the match like a man on fire. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows both struggle with the pace of the young high-flier. Bobby Lashley would then be brought into the match and his power would cause both members of the Club to head to the outside of the ring to regroup and talk strategy with AJ Styles. As they are doing this Lio Rush comes over and starts talking trash so Gallows boots him in the face!


    Lashley in the ring doesn't seem to care as he waits for the pair to come back in as Ali not wanting to wait makes the blind tag and runs off the ropes diving on all 3 members of the Club. This seems to annoy Lashley, who makes his way back onto the apron as Ali brings Gallows back into the ring. Ali controls the match for a bit but Gallows counters with a fallaway slam sending Ali to The Club's corner of the ring.

    After this counter, The Club starts to control the match as we can see Lio Rush talking to his main man Bobby Lashley. The Club cuts the ring in half as Mustafa Ali tries to fight back but is unable to escape from the pair. When it looks like all hope is lost though Ali counters a double team move hitting Karl Anderson with a tornado DDT. Anderson tries to stop him but Ali hits a dropkick sending Gallows over the ropes to the outside.

    Ali makes his way over to his corner looking for the tag but on the instruction of Lio Rush Bobby Lashley jumps off the apron. We see AJ smiling at ringside but Lashley hits him with a clothesline wiping him out before walking off. Big Show on commentary explains that whilst Lashley was looking for payback, Lio decided, it was best for him to take no more damage ahead of the Chamber this Sunday. Mustafa Ali now all alone tries to fight the pair off but in the end, The Club plant him with the Magic Killer and pick up the win over two of Raw's top superstars.

    Winners via pinfall: The Club (10:06)

    AJ Styles joins The Club in the ring as they look to celebrate another win on the Raw brand. Michael Cole mentions that in the main event AJ Styles will be taking on Braun Strowman. Big Show tells us AJ is going to need a plan if he is going to survive against the Monster Among Men. Mustafa Ali meanwhile on the outside looks annoyed as The Club hold their Raw tag team titles in the air and AJ once again
    signals he is going to win the Universal title.


    We then cut to a video package as we once again see Goldberg destroying people like the monster he is. It cuts to his most recent run and his Universal title reign teasing him looking for the rematch he never got. The video comes to an end as this comes on the screen:


    WHO'S NEXT?


    Ad break

    When we return from the commercial break we cut to a locker room as Rusev and Lana are chatting to each other whilst Shinsuke Nakamura can be seen working on his kicks and ignoring the pair. Lana breaks away from her husband but not before giving him a peck on the cheek.


    Lana: Shinsuke.

    Shinsuke ignores her and carries on kicking the punching bag in the room.

    Lana: Shinsuke.

    Shinsuke definitely heard her this time but carries on kicking the bag. Rusev at this point gets off the bench and walks over to Shinsuke spinning him around.

    Rusev: Listen when my wife is talking to you!

    Shinsuke gets in Rusev's face but instead lets out a troll-like smile.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: Sorry me no heard you.

    Rusev rolls his eyes as Lana tries to defuse the situation.

    Lana: Listen we want to support you ahead of your big match with Black this Sunday.

    Shinsuke shakes his head holding up his hand as he lets out a troll-like smile.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: I will be fine on my own without him and you there. I will do what he couldn't.

    Shinsuke at this point walks off as Rusev considers punching him in the face but thinks better off it walking away from his tag team partner as Lana tries to calm him down.

    *MAKING A DIFFERENCE*


    We return to the ring as we can see Andrade Cien Almas making his way out as his joined by his manager Zelina Vega who is holding Andrade's Money in the Bank briefcase. Michael Cole on commentary reminds us he will be facing Dolph Ziggler at Stomping Grounds as Ziggler looks for revenge after Andrade attacked him two weeks ago. Andrade and Zelina Vega stand in the ring looking at the crowd looking very smug.


    Zelina Vega: In six nights my client will show the world and Dolph Ziggler what the future of WWE looks like. But that is not the only thing happening this Sunday.

    Zelina Vega lets out a devilish smirk.

    Zelina Vega: Six men will step into one of the most dangerous structures in WWE history. Six men will go to war as they try to take the Universal title but they will also have to think about us.

    Zelina lifts the Money in the Bank briefcase into the air showing it off to the live crowd as Andrade looks very smug.

    Zelina Vega: They will know even if they survive the Chamber and walk out as Universal champion, my client Andrade Cien Almas could be waiting in the wings looking to pounce.

    Andrade Cien Almas: Because I won't break a sweat destroying Ziggler.

    Zelina Vega: Exactly Andrade. Ziggler is a shadow of the performer he once was and this Sunday Andrade will prove that when he defeats him in the center of the ring!

    Boos from the crowd as she insults Ziggler. Zelina looks to carry on but this music plays:

    *HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD*


    Dolph
    Ziggler makes his way out in a double denim jacket and he is in a bad mood as he gets ready to speak. Andrade and Zelina look cocky as ever in the ring meanwhile.


    Dolph Ziggler: Is that all you have to say about me? I'm a shadow of myself. Yeah, I have been a shadow of myself recently but I'm a former World champion! I'm a former Mr. Money in the Bank!

    Dolph is starting to get fired up as Zelina and Andrade look on from the ring.

    Dolph Ziggler: Even when being a shadow of myself I managed to become an Intercontinental champion and a tag team champion. So if you think this Sunday Andrade is in for an easy ride you are mistaken. This Sunday, Andrade gets the best of Dolph Ziggler.

    Zelina in the ring lets out an evil smile.

    Zelina Vega: That is a very nice speech, Dolph. But the game has evolved. Andrade is the next level and he is the future. But he isn't the only one. You see others have realized the value of my services.

    Dolph Ziggler looks confused.

    Dolph Ziggler: Funny cause I only see you and Andrade in the ring.

    As he says that as we see Cesaro run up behind Ziggler and hits him with a massive European uppercut from behind laying him out on the ramp getting boos from the crowd. Zelina in the ring lets out a smile as she shouts some instructions to her new client. Cesaro picks up Dolph and tosses him into the steel steps before he rolls the prone Ziggler into the ring.

    He lifts Ziggler into the air as Andrade takes the briefcase and places it on the mat allowing Cesaro to hit the Ricola bomb onto the briefcase! Ziggler rolls off the briefcase selling the damage done to him as Andrade slowly makes his way over to Ziggler putting his foot on the chest of his opponent this Sunday as Zelina looks to speak.

    Zelina Vega: Please welcome my new client, Cesaro!

    Zelina drops the microphone onto the mat as she raises the hands of her two clients letting out a smug smirk. Andrade is holding Money in the Bank briefcase in his other hand as all three stand tall over Dolph Ziggler. Michael Cole wonders what this new alliance means not only for Ziggler but for the men in the Elimination chamber whilst Big Show says someone like Cesaro with his power and Zelina's brains might be a lethal combination for anyone who gets in their way.

    We return from the commercial break as we cut to commentary team who inform us that the steel cage is being lowered ahead of the main event but first we will hear from Aleister Black. We cut to a dark room where Aleister Black is sat down staring at the camera.


    Aleister Black: Shinsuke Nakamura. Known as the king of strong style. You have an extensive history as a competitor. You have left bodies in your wake. You are the kind of challenge I came to face. But you aren't the same man you were when you arrived? No you have become desperate. A liar. A man who will go low to win. I am ready for everything you could bring and Shinsuke I will absolve you of your sins when you fade, fade to Black.

    We cut back to the ring as the commentary team not only hype up the card for Stomping Grounds but also mention the cage has now been lowered ready for the main event.

    *PHENOMENAL*


    AJ Styles and The Club make their way out looking weirdly confident. AJ steps into the cage as Big Show says AJ must have a plan as no one would be confident stepping into a cage with the monster among men. Michael Cole responds saying that the steel cage should keep the Club out of the match and leave it between the two men.


    *BRAUN/ I AM STRONGER*


    Braun Strowman makes his way out to the ring getting loud cheers from the crowd and The Club's plan soon becomes clear as they charge at Braun Strowman looking to attack him before the match. However, Braun is ready and hits them with a double shoulder block wiping them out. He then grabs hold of Luke Gallows and tosses him into the cage wall! However, as Braun turns around Karl Anderson hits him with one-half of the Raw tag team titles!


    Braun stumbles but stays on his feet. Karl Anderson then looks to follow up by charging at Braun looking for the rocket kick but Braun moves out of the way in time causing Karl Anderson to crash and burn! Braun picks up Karl Anderson and sends his face into the cage wall showing AJ what awaits him as AJ retreats back a little scared. Braun then picks up Karl Anderson and chokeslams him onto Luke Gallows!

    Braun then leaves both men on the floor outside the ring as he marches to one of the referees and tells him to give him the lock and key. Braun takes the lock and locks the door himself so The Club are trapped outside and AJ is trapped in the cage with him! Braun then stares at AJ and smiles as he holds up the key asking if AJ wants it before tossing it into the crowd! The referee calls for the bell then getting this underway.

    Main event: Steel cage match: Braun Strowman vs AJ Styles w/ The Club


    Match summary:
    AJ as soon as the bell rings tries to flee and climb the cage looking to escape the Monster Among Men's wrath but Braun quickly grabs hold of AJ and yanks him off the cage wall sending AJ falling to the floor with a massive thud! Braun tosses AJ Styles around the ring like a rag doll as AJ struggles to survive the first 3 minutes. AJ only gets back into the match as Braun crashes into the cage as AJ dodges out of the way.

    The commentary team also hype up the fact this Sunday in the Elimination Chamber they will be able to use their environment as a weapon! AJ looks to go after the leg, realizing attacking the leg might be his only way to win as he locks in the Calf Crusher on the monster! As this is going on the Raw Tag team champions are back on their feet as they cheer on their leader. AJ has the hold locked in tight but Braun escapes, powering AJ off of him but it does do some damage to his leg. AJ tries to escape once again but Braun stops him bringing him down.

    However, as AJ lands next to The Club they pass AJ something through the cage wall. Braun picks AJ up looking to hurt him some more as AJ sprays something in his eyes! AJ tosses the weapon to the side and hits Braun with a dropkick. AJ takes a moment to climb to the top rope and flies off hitting Braun with the Superman! AJ makes the cover 1 2 Braun kicks out! AJ at this point though is feeling confident and now he has control, he no longer wants to escape. He goes to the ropes again as he gets ready to fly off the top rope and hit the Phenomenal forearm but Braun swats him out of mid-air stopping him!

    Braun at this point is beating AJ and tossing him around the ring as Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson have seen enough and start to climb the cage getting boos from the crowd! Braun as this is going on runs around the ring and slams AJ down hitting him with running Powerslam as he makes the cover.

    Luke and Karl land in the cage

    Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson breaks it up by stomping on Braun. Both men start beating the monster among men up. This gives AJ the time to recover as all 3 men start laying into the monster among men. This is going on until:

    *GO HARD*


    Mustafa Ali makes his way to the ring as commentary reminds us of his problems with The Club over the last 2 weeks. He climbs the cage at a lightning pace as Braun gets himself free from Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows for a moment which allows Mustafa Ali to dive off
    THE STEEL CAGE AND WIPES OUT LUKE GALLOWS AND KARL ANDERSON WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY!


    This gets a holy shit chant from the live crowd as all 3 men lie down and out in the corner of the ring. AJ meanwhile has once again tried to sneak away still selling the impact of the running powerslam. Braun though peels him off the wall one more time before scooping him onto his shoulders for a second running powerslam! Braun makes the cover 1 2 3 Braun Strowman gets payback on AJ Styles!

    Winner via pinfall: Braun Strowman (10:37)


    Braun gets to his feet as he raises his arms in the air as Mustafa Ali makes his way to his feet as the two men stare each other down. Commentary mention this could be a clash we see this Sunday inside the Elimination Chamber but before anything can happen Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson start to attack the pair with the steel cage still down. It is an even fight until...


    *DOMINANCE*


    Lio Rush stands at the top of the ramp and sends his main man down to the ring as he shouts for him to make them all pay. Big Show mentions maybe this was Lio's plan earlier in the show as Bobby Lashley is now in the ring and starts taking everyone down! AJ gets to his feet but hides in the corner of the ring! This is going on for a while until...


    *BURN IT DOWN/ SECOND COMING*


    The Universal champion sprints to the ring but he is stopped by Lio Rush. However, Rollins makes quick work of the smaller foe and makes his way to the side of the ring where he grabs a pair of bolt cutters and opens the door, climbing into the cage as he takes down Lashley and then comes face to face with AJ Styles as both men stare each other down. It soon turns back into a brawl thanks to the Club and then...


    *GLORIOUS DOMINATION*


    Bobby Roode makes his way out looking to pick the pieces as he has a steel chair in hand. He enters the cage and takes down Rollins. He then starts attacking everyone but is taken down by Gallows. Braun though quickly tosses him over the ropes and to the outside floor before doing the same with Karl Anderson. Braun turns his attention back to the ring with the brawl carrying on between the 6 men who step into the Elimination Chamber. Braun Strowman, Mustafa Ali, Bobby Roode, Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles, and Seth Rollins all battling it out as the last thing we see is Andrade Cien Almas, Cesaro and Zelina Vega watching all 6 men destroying each other in the cage with a delighted look on their face as we fade to black.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Smackdown Live:
    Ontario, California
    June 18th:


    *SWAMP GAS*

    Smackdown Live starts off with Luke Harper making his way to the ring getting boos from the California crowd. Byron Saxton and Corey Graves welcome us to Smackdown Live and inform us we are starting the show off with a 6 man tag as Luke Harper and The War Raiders take on Finn Balor, Buddy Murphy, and Ricochet. Corey mentions Shane was kind enough to make this match as a way for Harper's opponents to get their hands on him in a fair fight.

    *WAR*

    The War Raiders make their way to the ring as they have their Smackdown tag team titles on their shoulders as they march to the ring. Bray Wyatt walks behind them as he seems to be feeding them instructions. Byron brings up the history between Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt explaining why he went to his former leader for help.


    *OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE WORLD*


    Buddy Murphy makes his way out to the ring looking angry. Corey on commentary says Murphy has been complaining on Twitter about the fact he is not getting a one on one shot with Luke Harper and Corey wonders if Murphy, Ricochet, and Balor can get along.


    *ONE AND ONLY*


    Ricochet makes his way to the ring next getting a pop from the crowd. He makes his way down the ramp joining Buddy Murphy at the bottom of the ramp as Buddy Murphy is already mouthing off at Ricochet as neither man seems happy about teaming up tonight.


    *CATCH YOUR BREATH*


    The Intercontinental champion makes his way down to the ring last as he shows off his title getting the attention of all 5 men at ringside. He walks to the ring getting a good reaction from the live crowd as he joins his two teammates for tonight as they climb into the ring. However right from the start, the trio can't agree who starts the match. The argument goes on until Buddy steps into the ring as Finn and Ricochet shake their heads. Corey notes if they are already having problems what chance
    do they have in this match?


    Match 1: Finn Balor, Buddy Murphy and Ricochet vs Luke Harper and The War Raiders w/Bray Wyatt


    Match summary:
    Rowe starts for the War Raiders as Buddy Murphy tries to come at him with his usual pace but Erik is too powerful. Buddy struggling early slaps Ricochet on the chest bringing him into the match, annoying Ricochet. Ricochet steps into the ring as Erik has tagged in Hanson. Ricochet smiles being familiar with the War Raiders as both men start to battle in the center of the ring with Ricochet trying to take down Hanson with his speed.

    Around the 10 minute mark, Luke Harper has yet to step into the ring annoying the other team but the War Raiders show off their impressive teamwork keeping the match even. Ricochet and Buddy meanwhile argue with each other throughout the match annoying Balor. In the closing stages Ricochet tags in Finn Balor over Buddy Murphy as they hit a double dropkick on Rowe.

    Buddy though takes offense to this and spins round Ricochet. Both men have had enough though and dropkick Buddy Murphy out of the ring however this distraction allows Rowe to tag in Luke Harper as the War Raiders take advantage attacking Ricochet and Finn Balor. Murphy storms off to the back waving the match off as the War Raiders wipe out Ricochet with the fallout. Luke Harper then takes out Finn Balor with the Discuss clothesline and pins the Intercontinental champion for the win!

    Winners via pinfall: Luke Harper and The War Raiders (13:26)


    Luke Harper gets to his feet as hE and The War Raiders stand tall in the ring over Ricochet and Finn Balor. Corey Graves on commentary mentionS Luke Harper has to be next in line for a shot at the Intercontinental title after pinning the champion tonight. Byron mentions the lack of teamwork being the difference but now Buddy's actions could have pushed back his chance at fighting for the Intercontinental title.


    Ad break


    *THE TRUTH REIGNS*

    We return from the commercial break as Roman Reigns makes his way out getting a loud pop from the live crowd. Byron on commentary tells us he took last week off to spend time with his family. Corey reminds us that at the Great American Bash he will be going one on one with Drew McIntyre and the winner will fight for the WWE title at Summerslam! Reigns is now in the ring as he looks to address the live crowd.


    Roman Reigns: Last week I was sat at home with my family watching Smackdown Live and I heard Drew still wants a piece of me.

    Reigns lets out a slight smile.

    Roman Reigns: Drew anytime you want to fight me, I'll be here waiting for you. You don't need to bring your boys. Just come out here by yourself and I will kick your ass!

    Cheers from the live crowd.

    Roman Reigns: But Shane you made a massive mistake. You think you are handing a WWE title shot to Drew but you forget I never lost the WWE title.

    Reigns points towards the crowd.

    Roman Reigns: Everyone knows I was never beaten for the WWE title and I am coming back for my title! So not only will I destroy Drew but whether it is Randy Orton.

    Mixed reaction from the crowd.

    Roman Reigns: Or Kofi Kingston.

    Loud cheers for the mention of the WWE champion as Reigns smiles slightly.

    Roman Reigns: Listen I like him too but if he is still the champion come Summerslam I will take the title from him believe that!

    For the first time since coming back, Reigns gets a mixed reaction from the crowd. Before Roman can respond, however...

    *GALLANTRY*


    Drew McIntyre marches out to the entrance ramp as he has a microphone of his own in his hands. Reigns in the ring gets ready for a fight.


    Drew McIntyre: You think you are going to destroy me? Why wait for the Bash? Let's do this right now.

    Drew drops the microphone keeping it short and sweet as Reigns climbs out of the ring and joins Drew on the entrance ramp as the two men start clobbering each other with massive blows. This goes on for a few seconds with neither man gaining the upper hand until Baron Corbin and Elias run out getting boos from the crowd as they look to help Drew McIntyre.

    Drew does not look happy to see them but accepts the help from the pair. They both grab hold of Roman and start to beat him down. Drew meanwhile lines Roman up as he looks like he is going to go for the claymore until Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn run out with a steel chair to even the odds. They clatter Drew in the back before hitting Elias and Baron Corbin!


    Corbin and Elias realize they are in trouble and get the hell out of dodge as they take Drew McIntyre with them. Drew looks annoyed to have been forced to run away from a fight again by the Corporation but accepts it. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens help their ally in recent times Roman Reigns to his feet as they stare down the Corporation. Byron is glad that Owens and Zayn were able to make their way out here so quickly whilst Corey once again questions if it is wise for them to cross the Corporation.

    Ad break


    We return from the commercial break with two local jobbers in the ring introduced as Mary Sue and Jane Doe as they await their opponents.


    Isla Dawn and Nikki Cross make their way to the ring getting a decent reaction from the live crowd. Byron Saxton reminds us that Isla Dawn debuted as the friend Nikki was talking about playing with and saved her from an attack by the Iiconics. Corey responds telling Byron the pair are calling themselves the Twisted Sisters and says you would have to be a little insane to team with someone like Nikki Cross. Isla Dawn starts for the sisters whilst Mary Sue starts for their opponents.


    Match 2: The twisted sisters (Nikki Cross and Isla Dawn) vs Mary Sue and Jane Doe


    Match Summary:
    The Twisted Sisters pick up the win, controlling the match with ease and in the end, Isla Dawn puts away Jane Doe with Black Magic giving the team a win in their début match together.


    Winners via pinfall: The Twisted Sisters (2:07)


    The crowd let out a few cheers as Bryon puts over how lethal Isla Dawn is and the wild frenzied offence of Nikki Cross will make them a tough challenge for anyone who gets in their way. Nikki and Isla meanwhile have asked for microphones as they look to speak.


    Isla Dawn: For those of you who don't know me, I am the White Witch Isla Dawn. Now people have this idea about witches.

    She lets out a slight smile whilst Nikki looks unhinged as always.

    Isla Dawn: But I can assure you I don't sit in the forest cackling sat next to a cauldron. No, when I step in this ring magic happens and it is bad news for my opponents.

    Nikki Cross: You’re so fun to play with.

    Isla smiles as she looks at her partner and friend Nikki Cross.

    Isla Dawn: Me and Nikki know each other from our homeland Scotland and we are here to become WWE women tag team champions.

    Nikki nods very happy at the thought of becoming a champion as Isla carries on.

    Isla Dawn: But one thing I didn't see written in the stars was the Iiconics losing the belts before we got our chance to face them.

    Nikki Cross: They lost the toys we wanted to play with.

    Isla Dawn: But the stars always offer a new path and we will...


    *FEMME FATALE*


    The Iiconics make their way out getting boos from the crowd as they do not look impressed with what the Twisted Sisters had to say.


    Peyton Royce: Do not bring up that heinous robbery!

    Billie Kay: Do you know how much of an injustice that was?

    Peyton Royce: We were robbed and we are still petitioning for another rematch.

    Billie Kay: I mean we were the longest reigning tag team champions of all time!

    Peyton Royce: No team held and defended those titles longer than us.

    Byron Saxton (on commentary):There has only been one other team who has held the belts!

    Corey Graves (on commentary): Shut up Saxton!

    Billie Kay: So as the longest-reigning champions...

    Nikki Cross: Can you stop talking as Nikki wants to play!

    Cheers from the crowd as the Iiconics do a shocked and offended face.

    Isla Dawn: Me and Nikki didn't come together to talk. No, we want the Women tag team titles so what better way than beating you two.

    Peyton Royce: You want a fight? Next week new girl I will beat you and show you what an Iconic champion looks like.

    Isla Dawn: You are on but your fate is written in the stars and it doesn't look good I promise you.

    Isla Dawn drops the microphone as the two teams stare each other down as the competition in the Women's tag team division is really starting to heat up.

    Ad break


    As we return from the commercial break Corey Graves informs us that Isla Dawn versus Peyton Royce has been made official for next week's Smackdown Live. Byron mentions that at Stomping Grounds this Sunday the Boss 'n' Hug Connection will be defending their tag team titles against Fire and Desire but they will have to keep their eyes on Smackdown as either the Iiconics or the Twisted Sisters could be next in line for a title shot.


    *CELTIC INVASION*


    Becky Lynch walks out to the ring with both her title belts on her shoulder as she has a smug smirk on her face. Byron Saxton reminds us that this Sunday Becky will defend her Raw Women's title in a street fight against the
    Glamazon Beth Phoenix. Corey mentions she faces a totally different threat in the first lady herself Lacey Evans! He tells us Lacey is hungry for success and has been saying on Twitter behind every great man there is a better lady. Back in the ring, Becky is stood ready to talk and address the live crowd.


    Becky Lynch: So in 6 nights time I step into the ring for a fight. And you best believe I'm focused on that. However, the Man is not just concerned with the present. No, I’m always looking to who I’m fighting in the future.


    Becky Lynch paces up and down in the ring.

    Becky Lynch: Last week I saw a little lady known as Lacey Evans earn the chance to fight the Man. So how about you come to this ring and the Man can see face to face whether you measure up.

    Pop from the crowd as Becky seems fired up tonight as she waits for Lacey Evans to make her way out to the ring.

    *LIKE A LADY*


    Ask and you shall receive as the first lady of Smackdown Live Lacey Evans walks down the ramp with a fancy hat on her head as she mocks the crowd on the way down the ramp. However, instead of making her way to the ring Lacey turns around walking back up the ramp and around for another lap getting boos from the crowd. Becky though looks unimpressed.


    Becky Lynch: Come on Lacey the man hasn't got all day.

    The music stops and so does Lacey in the middle of the ramp, giving Becky a dirty look.

    Lacey Evans: Did your momma not teach you any manners? Never interrupt a lady.

    Lacey starts walking back to the ring as Becky chuckles to herself.

    Becky Lynch: Big talk for a new kid on the block. I don't care whether you are a lady or not because all I see when I look at you is the next person in line for me to beat.

    Lacey Evans: That is where you're wrong Becky because you have never faced someone like me before.

    Becky Lynch: What a blond? No, I spent 9 months beating one of those on this very brand.

    Cheers for the shots at her long term rival Charlotte Flair as Lacey does not look impressed being compared to someone else.


    Lacey Evans: I'm nothing like Charlotte Flair. No, I wasn't born into this business. I had to go through war and the marines before I became the lady I am today. You think you had to fight? You ain't had half the fight I've had and I ain't waiting like you did to get to the top. I'm coming for the title now because no man can measure up to what a lady can do.

    Boos from the crowd as Becky smiles.


    Becky Lynch: Listen this is your first time at the top


    Lacey Evans: And I intend on staying here.


    Becky now gets in Lacey's face as neither women looks to back down.


    Becky Lynch: Is that so? Listen you have 3 weeks until I smack you like the dope you are. I suggest you get ready. Cause right now, all I see is a green rookie in above her head!


    Cheers from the crowd as Lacey looks annoyed. Becky goes to leave but Lacey goes to cheap shot her with the Woman's right! However, Becky sees it coming and grabs the arm of Lacey. However, before she can punish Lacey for the cheap shot attempt Lacey gets her arm free and slides out of the ring looking to retreat. Becky though turns to Lacey as she flees up the ramp.


    Becky Lynch: You think I wouldn't see that coming? I know all the tricks Lacey and if you are going coming to fight Becky2belts you will have to do better then that.

    Becky throws the microphone down as Lacey Evans retreats up the ramp annoyed her plan tonight failed as Becky shows off her belts to the delight of the crowd. Byron also mentions Lacey is going to need to step her game up to take down the man but Corey says the first lady was just looking to fire an opening salvo and she will have more in the tank for sure.

    We then cut backstage as we can see Heavy Machinery are backstage in catering as Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight both have numerous plates in front of them as Otis can be seen finishing off a massive steak.

    Tucker Knight: OK I think I'm stuffed. How about you Otis?

    Otis Dozovic: Tucky I think even I'm full buddy.

    Tucker Knight: There is no better way to get over our loss than some steaks.

    Otis Dozovic: But what is the plan after this Tucky?

    Tucker Knight: We get back on the weights and we focus on getting another shot!

    Tucker high fives his friend as we cut to a hallway as we can see the Riott Squad walking to the ring. Corey Graves tells us we are going to see Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan of the Riott Squad facing Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon in a tornado tag team match and that is up next!

    Ad break


    *WE RIOT*

    The Riott Squad march to the ring with Ruby Riott leading the way as the commentary team talk about this war between the Riott Squad, Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon starting before Money in the Bank and has been going on ever since. Corey tells us Shane McMahon made this match trying to bring this rivalry to an end.


    *FREE THE FLAME*

    *SPITEFUL*


    Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon make their way out getting a decent pop from the crowd as they sprint down the ramp and join the
    Riott Squad in the ring. The referee gets both teams to back off before ringing the bell, getting this contest underway!


    Match 3: Tornado tag team match: Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon vs Riott Squad (Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan) w/Ruby Riott


    Match summary:
    The match starts off with a bang as soon as the bell rings with both Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon charging at the Riott Squad and are even able to send them out of the ring to the outside. Alexa and Ember look at each other before hitting stereo dives to the outside wiping out Liv and Sarah! Alexa and Ember are in total control as the commentary team reminds us there are no count-outs due to the nature of a tornado tag team match.


    Ruby Riott early on sees her girls are in trouble and looks to make her way towards Bliss on the outside. However as the referee looks the other way, Bliss fakes being attacked by Ruby Riott and lets out a scream! The referee looks over and sees Bliss on the ground next to Ruby Riott and ejects Ruby Riott from ringside getting loud cheers from the crowd.

    From there the match is pure chaos which does favor the Riott Squad but Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon keep each other alive and show their improvement as a team, even catching the Riott Squad by surprise with some fun double team moves. In the end, Sarah Logan is attacking Bliss but Bliss counters hitting her with a snap DDT! Bliss makes the cover but Liv Morgan breaks it up at 2!

    Liv Morgan starts to attack Alexa Bliss but Bliss looks to keep her still as we can see in the corner of the ring Ember Moon climbing to the top rope. Liv starts to realize what is going to happen but it is too late as Bliss pushes Liv into position as Ember hits her with the Eclipse! Ember makes the cover 1 2 Bliss blocks Sarah Logan 3! Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon pick up the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Ember Moon and Alexa Bliss (12:08)


    Sarah Logan pushes past Alexa Bliss to make the save but it is too late as Alexa Bliss jumps on her friend Ember Moon giving her a big hug as the pair are happy to walk away with the win tonight. Byron puts over the performance of Ember Moon and Alexa Bliss saying if they keep working this well as a team they could be the future of the Women's tag team division. The Riott Squad meanwhile sulk off unhappy to have come up short tonight.

    *FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES*

    As we return from the commercial break we hear loud boos from the WWE universe as Daniel Bryan makes his way out to the ring flanked by Erick Rowan as always. Daniel Bryan still has the hemp WWE title around his waist as Corey calls him the planet's champion. He steps into the ring and shakes his head at the booing crowd.


    Daniel Bryan: You people just don't get it. I am constantly trying to save you people from yourself cause you are too stupid to know better.

    Loud boos from the crowd as Daniel shakes his head.

    Daniel Bryan: I try to tell you how you can save the planet and how your filthy habitats are destroying the planet but you just don't listen. I mean look at how hot it is in California and you people don't want to stop it from getting warmer? How selfish do you have to be to not drive your car for once and or just recycle?

    Daniel Bryan holds his hemp WWE title in the air.

    Daniel Bryan: People ask me why I carry this around with me and it shows they don't understand. This signifies I am not only the best superstar in the WWE but I will always be the planet's champion. I will always fight to save the planet you try to destroy. But there is one thing I won't recycle. Beating the Miz again.


    Cheers for the mention of his name which angers Daniel Bryan.

    Daniel Bryan: Fickle, fickle, fickle.

    Bryan is getting red in the face as Erick Rowan stands behind him stoic as ever.

    Daniel Bryan: You people used to hate The Miz and love me but you turned like the fickle sheep you are. But I will do you people a favor because you won't have to watch me beat The Miz like I always do.

    Boos from the crowd as he once again refuses to fight The Miz.

    *I CAME TO PLAY*


    The Miz makes his way out in a nice suit, wearing a pair of sunglasses as Daniel Bryan rolls his eyes annoyed by The Miz's presence.


    Daniel Bryan: NO NONO. Are you deaf? I will not fight you at The Great American Bash.

    The Miz: Wow you really do love recycling. You're even bringing back the NO's? Next, you will actually bring back the YES movement.

    Daniel Bryan: NO NO NO. That is dead and will stay dead.

    The Miz: Oh I get it you have learned from me.

    Daniel is furious in the ring as The Miz lets out a smile.

    The Miz: You are trying my style of wrestling. I mean you do remember this.

    The Miz points at the titantron as he replays that infamous talking smack segment between him and Daniel Bryan. We then cut back to The Miz who has now climbed into the ring joining a furious Daniel Bryan.

    The Miz: But I think you forgot my soft style actually involved me fighting people, not hiding like a coward.

    Daniel Bryan: Why should I fight you Miz? Why should I waste my time beating you again? I could be saving the planet, I could be fighting for the title that should be mine. Why should I fight you?

    The Miz slaps Bryan in the face. This makes Erick Rowan step forward in between the pair as The Miz smiles but moves slightly out of reach, too smart to let Rowan get his hands on him.

    The Miz: Because you hate me more than anyone back there and you are sum up everything I hate. You think that I didn't work as hard as you to get where I am and you look down on anyone who thinks differently than you. Come on Bryan what is it going to take for you to give me what I want.

    Daniel Bryan: Fine I will face you at the Great American Bash if you can beat Erick Rowan next week.

    Bryan points Erick Rowan who snarls at The Miz. The Miz, however, responds by smiling.

    The Miz: If fighting Rowan is what I need to do to get my match with you then I will beat him next week.

    The Miz drops the microphone and slides out of the ring. Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan stare him down from the ring not looking happy. Byron says The Miz faces a tough challenge overcoming the giant Erick Rowan but The Miz is one of the smartest performers in WWE and will have a plan for sure. Corey, however, says Bryan should not have to beat The Miz again and should be focusing on covering new ground not repeating a battle from the past.

    When we return from the commercial break Kayla Braxton is stood backstage ready for an interview.


    Kayla Braxton: Would you please welcome my guest at this time, Charlotte Flair.

    Charlotte Flair walks into the shot as she looks in a foul mood having come up short in the battle royal last week.

    Charlotte: Make it quick Kayla. I'm a busy woman.

    Kayla Braxton: OK, last week you failed to win the battle royal and missed out on the chan...

    Charlotte: Did you bring me here to mock me, Kayla? Did you ask me for this interview to make fun of me?

    Kayla Braxton: No Charlotte I didn't I was...

    Charlotte: Give me that.

    Charlotte snatches the microphone from Kayla.

    Charlotte: Now leave.

    Kayla wisely does what Charlotte says.

    Charlotte: Asuka is not better than me. She got lucky. She can't beat me in a normal match so she had to catch me by surprise. You see I'm always ready for Asuka and I always will be.

    Charlotte drops the microphone and turns around as Asuka jumps on her and lays into the Queen! Asuka is looking to hurt Charlotte Flair who tries to fight back but Asuka is too much. Asuka finishes it off with a massive kick to the head leaving Charlotte out cold! Asuka then bends down over Charlotte.

    Asuka: Were you ready then?

    Asuka walks off leaving Charlotte laid out on the floor as we cut to a posh room as Jack Gallagher and Aiden English are sat on luxury chairs with brandy glasses in hand and a book in the other hand.

    Jack Gallagher: Last week Aiden and I were watching Lucha House Party in action.

    Aiden English: And we were not impressed.

    Jack Gallagher: You see as Gentlemen we expect a certain level of class from the teams in the tag team division.

    Aiden English: And you showed none of that in your victory.

    Jack Gallagher: But me and Aiden can show you how to perform with true class.

    Aiden English: In two weeks time we want to issue you a challenge.

    Jack Gallagher: We challenge you two, to a tag team match and we will show you how a team with class wrestle.

    Aiden English: See we are one and one when it comes to singles matches.

    Jack Gallagher: But wrestling as a team is a wholly different affair.

    Aiden English: So we will see you in two weeks.

    Jack Gallagher: If you are man enough to accept.

    Both men finish their brandy and start reading their books as the promo comes to an end. We cut back to the commentary team who wonder if Lucha House party will agree to the challenge laid out just now. Byron then informs us The Miz vs Erick Rowan has been made official for next week's Smackdown Live. We then cut backstage as we can see Randy Orton walking to the ring as Byron tells us the main event will happen after the commercial break.

    Ad break


    *VOICES*

    Randy Orton makes his way out to the ring after the commercial break getting mostly boos from the live crowd though some fans still cheer him because he is Randy Orton. Byron mentions Apollo Crews will be out for nearly a month after Randy Orton punted him in the skull last week. Corey says you don't want to mess with the Viper and Big E might be making a big mistake tonight.


    *NEW DAY, NEW WAY*


    Noticeably there is no Big E introduction as Big E is not in a good mood as he looks to make the man who attacked his friend Xavier Woods pay. Big E wastes no time charging into the ring as Kofi makes his way to commentary desk. Before Kofi can say a word however Big E attacks Orton taking him down as he starts the match with a bang.


    Main event: Big E w/ Kofi Kingston vs Randy Orton


    Match summary:
    Big E starts the match on fire really laying into Randy Orton. Kofi on commentary says he and his boy Big E are out for revenge after Orton punted Xavier in the skull. When asked how his friend is, Kofi says he is having a few tests during the week and could be back soon. The commentary team also asks Kofi about his history with Randy Orton and Kofi says he knows Orton very well and he has always been a bully who likes to hurt people.


    In the ring, Big E is no longer in control as it gets to the middle stages as Orton like a viper strikes when Big E makes a mistake and slowly wears down the powerful superstar. Big E though refuses to go down without a fight and gets a couple of near falls thanks to his insane power. However, in the end, Randy counters a Big Ending attempt with an RKO for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Randy Orton (14:16)

    Randy Orton gets his hand raised by the referee after the match but Randy Orton doesn't focus on the person in the ring instead turning his attention to Kofi Kingston on commentary. Byron asked what Kofi thinks and Kofi tells him he knows how good Orton is but at the Great American Bash he will avenge his friend Xavier and retain his WWE title. Randy though in the ring mouths to Kofi saying watch this as he starts to make his way to the corner of the ring.


    Kofi is smart enough to know what is coming next and tosses the microphone down with such force it breaks as he sprints into the ring. Orton who was lining up the punt sees Kofi coming and just smiles as he retreats through the crowd, running away as he gets booed by the live crowd. In the ring, Kofi checks on his friend Big E after the match as the show comes to a close with Kofi daring Randy to come back to the ring but the Viper slithers away taunting Kofi as he leaves.

    Predictions contest:

    Matchcard
    for Stomping Grounds:
    June 23rd
    Tacoma, Washington




    7. Universal title elimination chamber match:

    Seth Rollins (c) vs Bobby Roode vs AJ Styles vs Bobby Lashley vs Mustafa Ali vs Braun Strowman
    Way too soon for him to drop the belt, but wouldn’t put it past you to make him barely survive again to perhaps start a storyline in that sense for Seth.

    6. Raw Women's title street fight:

    Becky Lynch (c) vs Beth Phoenix
    Gives Becky a huge win for the reign.

    4. US title match:

    Samoa Joe (c) vs Chad Gable
    I think Joe manages to just survive to keep Gable coming for him.

    3. WWE women's tag team titles match:

    Boss 'n' Hug Connection (c) vs Fire and Desire
    I think there will definitely be a tease of the turn, but it doesn’t happen quite yet.

    5. Cruiserweight title match:

    Rey Mysterio (c) vs Drew Gulak
    I feel like you wanna use Mysterio to boost the division as a whole, and I’m a-ok with that.

    1. Grudge match:

    Dolph Ziggler vs Andrade Cien Almas w/Zelina Vega
    One is in the middle of a huge push, the other is Ziggler. I will say you’ve done a good job to make Ziggler feel like an important opponent for Almas.


    2. Singles match:
    Aleister Black vs Shinsuke Nakamura
    This was a hard one to pick, both men could use a win, but gonna go with Black as he’s the newer man on the main roster.

    Special appearance:

    Goldberg appears!


    Pre-show:

    Grudge match:
    Kairi Sane vs Mickie James


    Exhibition match:

    Cesaro vs Jey Uso

    Questions:

    Predict the winners for each match (1 point for each): Done
    Predict the match order minus the pre-show (1 point for each): Done
    What will be the longest match: (1 point) Chamber
    What will be the shortest match: (1 point) Dolph/Almas
    What will Goldberg announcement be? (2 points) He wants one last match for Summerslam
    Any surprise appearances? (2 points) Maybe someone to interrupt Goldberg, I’ll say Undertaker
    And lastly will either Andrade Cien Almas or Sasha Banks cash in their briefcases? (1 point for each) No, but I’ll say Almas will try

    Matchcard for Stomping Grounds:

    June 23rd
    Tacoma, Washington

    7. Universal title elimination chamber match:

    Seth Rollins (c) vs Bobby Roode vs AJ Styles vs Bobby Lashley vs Mustafa Ali vs Braun Strowman
    I think you stick with Seth until someone else is heated up enough to beat him 1-on-1, and I don't think anyone is on his level and ready to carry the brand yet


    5. Raw Women's title street fight:

    Becky Lynch (c) vs Beth Phoenix
    Really love the idea for this and the build has been good, but Becky is the star and, similar to Seth, needs to keep the belt until there's someone who can really benefit from the change. Beth is a fun opponent, but someone to get Becky more over, not vice versa


    3. US title match:

    Samoa Joe (c) vs Chad Gable
    Found this one really hard, but Joe is booked really strongly and I can see him hanging on to the belt for a while yet. But Chad will take him right to the wire and get himself over that way


    4. WWE women's tag team titles match:

    Boss 'n' Hug Connection (c) vs Fire and DesireCan see you changing the belts so Sasha is ready to go heel and cash in... but not tonight


    1. Cruiserweight title match:

    Rey Mysterio (c) vs Drew Gulak
    Given he's a relatively new champ, I say Rey wins here, and like Seth and Becky, keeps it until you're ready to crown a new, big star


    6. Grudge match:

    Dolph Ziggler vs Andrade Cien Almas w/Zelina Vega
    This is the one I'm most sure of. Andrade just won MITB and is in line to be your next big thing, and aside from the Miz feud right after the brand split Dolph hasn't been an interesting character to me probably for 6 or 7 years

    2. Singles match:

    Aleister Black vs Shinsuke Nakamura
    Nakamura has unfortunately been a bit of a bust in the E, and I can see his main value from now on being putting over new guys like Black


    Special appearance:

    Goldberg appears!


    Pre-show:

    Grudge match:
    Kairi Sane vs Mickie James
    Mickie has served her purpose in that Becky feud, time to get Kairi elevated


    Exhibition match:

    Cesaro vs Jey Uso
    Seems to be the more featured guy


    Questions:

    Predict the winners for each match (1 point for each): DONE
    Predict the match order minus the pre-show (1 point for each): DONE
    What will be the longest match: (1 point) ELIMINATION CHAMBER
    What will be the shortest match: (1 point) BLACK V NAKAMURA
    What will Goldberg announcement be? (2 points) I THINK HE'S PLANNING ON ANNOUNCING HIS RETIREMENT, BUT SOMEONE WILL COME OUT AND CHALLENGE HIM FOR SUMMERSLAM
    Any surprise appearances? (2 points) I'M GOING TO GUESS IT'S THE UNDERTAKER WHO INTERRUPTS GOLDBERG'S ANNOUNCEMENT AND THEY SET UP A SUMMERSLAM MATCH (GIVEN I DON'T THINK THE SAUDI MATCH HAPPENED IN THIS THREAD
    And lastly will either Andrade Cien Almas or Sasha Banks cash in their briefcases? (1 point for each) NOT YET

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Stomping Grounds:
    June 23rd
    Tacoma, Washington




    7. Universal title elimination chamber match:

    Seth Rollins (c) vs Bobby Roode vs AJ Styles vs Bobby Lashley vs Mustafa Ali vs Braun Strowman

    It's simply not time yet. Rollins dropping the belt here would be a really flat end to a title reign that still feels like it's just getting going. SETH ROLLINS comes through the five guys (maybe even as one of the first two in the match) to retain the title, probably coming down to him and Lashley to finish up that program too.

    5. Raw Women's title street fight:

    Becky Lynch (c) vs Beth Phoenix

    Much like Seth, it's early to be taking either belt off Becky, and the best time to do it will be at SummerSlam when she's having to defend both belts in separate matches. Loved the tease with Sasha on Smackdown in their backstage meeting, especially Becky hinting at Sasha being the one that took out Bayley with the "Keep your friends close" bit. This has been a good feud to keep Becky busy, but Beth isn't winning the title in 2019. It's still #Becky2Belts as BECKY LYNCH retains.

    4. US title match:

    Samoa Joe (c) vs Chad Gable

    The push of Chad Gable has been great, and I see him eventually dethroning Joe and being an awesome U.S Champion ... but I don't see it happening yet. SAMOA JOE retains here to keep the chase going.

    2. WWE women's tag team titles match:

    Boss 'n' Hug Connection (c) vs Fire and Desire

    There's too much mileage left in the Boss N' Hug Connection as champions. Especially if you're going to go hard on Sasha stalking Becky with the Money in the Bank lurking at all times, having her showing up on both shows to be right behind Becky at all times could be a great story.

    1. Cruiserweight title match:

    Rey Mysterio (c) vs Drew Gulak

    He only just won the belt, so REY MYSTERIO retains and continues to build up the division.

    3. Grudge match:

    Dolph Ziggler vs Andrade Cien Almas w/Zelina Vega

    Ziggler is yesterdays man. ANDRADE takes the win here and continues to get ready to cash in MITB.

    6. Singles match:

    Aleister Black vs Shinsuke Nakamura

    Very similar to the above match. ALEISTER BLACK is going to be in line for a major push, Nakamuras petered out long ago.

    Special appearance:

    Goldberg appears!



    Pre-show:

    Grudge match:
    Kairi Sane vs Mickie James

    Mickie is best served to get other people over at this stage. KAIRI SANE wins.

    Exhibition match:

    Cesaro vs Jey Uso

    I'll go for the upset. JEY USO goes from strength to strength during this unscheduled singles run.

    Questions:

    Predict the winners for each match (1 point for each): DONE
    Predict the match order minus the pre-show (1 point for each): DONE
    What will be the longest match: (1 point): ELIMINATION CHAMBER; right?
    What will be the shortest match: (1 point): BLACK/NAKAMURA
    What will Goldberg announcement be? (2 points): HE WANTS ONE MORE RUN.
    Any surprise appearances? (2 points): OTHERS HAVE SAID TAKER ... I'LL SAY BATISTA INTERRUPTS GOLDBERG.
    And lastly will either Andrade Cien Almas or Sasha Banks cash in their briefcases? (1 point for each): NO

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Stomping Grounds
    June 23rd
    Tacoma, Washington


    Pre-show results:

    Mickie James vs Kairi Sane

    Match Summary: A decent match between two experienced competitors. Mickie throughout the match accuses Kairi of disrespecting her and gets very wound up as Kairi Sane refuses to go down. In the end, Kairi counters a Mick Kick attempt and plants Mickie with a jumping DDT. Kairi, however, this time follows it up with the Anchor! She locks it in tight in the center of the ring and Mickie James is left with no choice but to tap out giving Kairi Sane the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Kairi Sane (9:35)


    Cesaro w/ Zelina Vega vs JeyUso w/Zack Ryder

    Match Summary: Cesaro makes his way out looking cocky. Noticeably JeyUso makes his way out with Zack Ryder, one-half of the former Raw tag team champions. Michael Cole on commentary wonders where Curt Hawkins is. Throughout the match, Zack Ryder keeps an eye on Zelina Vega making sure she doesn't get involved but Cesaro doesn't need her to as he shows off his power and skill. JeyUso puts up a better fight than expected showing a lot of promise but in the end, Cesaro plants him with the Ricola Bomb for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Cesaro (8:20)



    Main Show:

    Loud cheers from the crowd in Washington as Michael Cole and Big Show give us the usual introduction and run through the card for tonight. The pair would then inform us we are starting the show with Aleister Black taking on Shinsuke Nakamura in singles action.

    *SHADOWS OF A SETTING SUN*

    Shinsuke Nakamura makes his way to the ring first getting boos from the live crowd. Big Show on commentary notes he is without his tag team partner Rusev and manager Lana. Michael mentions the issues Shinsuke seems to have with Lana and Rusev maybe factoring into why he has come out alone to fight the Dutch Destroyer. Shinsuke meanwhile is now in the ring as he awaits his opponent tonight.

    *ROOT OF ALL EVIL*

    Aleister Black makes his usual entrance getting loud cheers from the crowd as we can see Shinsuke Nakamura looking at Aleister Black and he looks unimpressed. Aleister Black remains stoic as he marches to the ring not taking his eyes off the king of strong style. Big Show says he has never seen anyone like Aleister Black before as he steps through the ropes now staring down Shinsuke Nakamura. The referee checks both competitors ahead of this contest before calling for the bell and getting this underway.


    Aleister Black vs Shinsuke Nakamura

    The bells rings as both men take a few moments to size each other up. They circle the ring with neither men making a move in the opening moments. This goes on until Shinsuke tells Aleister Black to come on, trying to wind up Aleister Black but the Dutch destroyer remains stoic. Shinsuke seems annoyed by the lack of reaction from Black and goes for a massive kick. Black, however, dodges out of the way and catches him with one in the chest sending Shinsuke down to the mat.

The commentary team put over how big a win this is for Andrade, defeating a former World champion tonight in Dolph Ziggler and doing so without his manager Zelina Vega at ringside. Andrade heads up the ramp with a big smile as we see his manager Zelina Vega and her newest client Cesaro applaud Andrade as he comes up the entrance ramp.

    Meanwhile, in the ring, Dolph Ziggler is sat down and looks like he is on the verge of tears as he stares up the ramp looking at Zelina Vega, Cesaro and Andrade at the top of the ramp as he ponders what to do next. We then cut backstage as we can see the Women tag team champions walking through the back. Sasha has a smug look on her face but Bayley doesn't look happy.

    Bayley: Sasha, we need to talk.

    Sasha Banks: What is there to talk about Bayley? We taught those two a lesson and now they know not to mess with you and me ever again.

    Bayley: But did you need to cheat?

    Sasha Banks: Listen Bayley if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. Sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to get whatever you want.

    Bayley noticeably looks at the Money in the Bank briefcase as Sasha says that but before she can say anything Sonya Deville clubs her from behind! Sasha Banks jumps on Sonya with a lou thresz press looking to attack her but she is soon dragged off by Mandy Rose who tosses her into the wall as both members of Fire and Desire beat down the Boss 'n' Hug connection. Fire and Desire leave the pair laying as they rise to their feet.

    Sonya Deville: This? This is just a taste of what we would have done if we attacked Bayley backstage at Money in the Bank.

    Mandy Rose: This isn't over.

    Fire and Desire walk off leaving the Boss 'n' Hug connection laid out backstage as we cut back to the commentary team at ringside who comment on what just happened.

    Angelo Dawkins: Hello we are the Street Profits.

    Montez Ford: You might know us from previous promotions such as N X T.

    *INVASION*

    We cut to the back as we get the usual long Goldberg entrance as the legendary superstar starts to make his way to the ring flanked by a few security guards. Once he makes his way onto the entrance ramp we get a loud pop as the legend walks to the ring looking all business. Michael Cole on commentary puts over how unstoppable he has been throughout his career whilst Big Show mentions stepping into the ring to fight Goldberg in the past and no one can match him for power or intensity. Goldberg now stands in the ring with a microphone as he gets ready to speak.

    Goldberg: A few years ago I made my return to this company and destroyed everyone who got in my way. But I went back to my family as I scratched my itch.

    The camera cuts to his son and wife in the crowd who are both smiling.

    Goldberg: However there has been something clawing at me and I'm looking for another fight.

    Cheers from the crowd.

    Goldberg: I mean I never got my rematch for the Universal title. So whether it is Seth Rollins or someone else, I want to know who is...

    *MAGIC CARPET RIDE*

    Ariya Daivari makes his way out getting some heat from the crowd but most of the crowd are just confused why the cruiserweight has made his way out to the ring with a microphone in his hand. He steps inside the ropes and stares at Goldberg looking angry.

    Ariya Daivari: You come out here and steal time from superstars like me. You come here and steal my spot. Well, how about I fig...

Goldberg however in the ring looks furious as Big Show and Michael Cole wonder why the NXT superstar is out here. Matt Riddle climbs over the ropes as he comes face to face with Goldberg.

    Matt Riddle: Why do you keep ducking me, bro?

    Goldberg: I'm not your bro!

    Matt Riddle: OK bro calm down.

    Riddle puts his hands up mockingly as you can cut the tension with a knife.

    Matt Riddle: I have been calling you out for years and you ain't been answering me. Dude, you already know who your next challenger is and it’s the ultimate bro!

    Goldberg: Listen kid, I know you're trying to make a name for yourself at my expense but until you are on Raw you're not worth my time.

    Matt Riddle: Well bro why didn't you just say so? Guess who is now a member of Monday Night Raw as of tonight!

    A loud pop from the crowd as Michael Cole hypes up how big a signing Matt Riddle is for the brand, one of the top stars in NXT. Goldberg, however, doesn't react staring at Matt Riddle, just wanting to punch him in the face.

    Matt Riddle: So how about I teach you how to wrestle at Summerslam!

    Cheers and a few ooohs for that dig as Goldberg looks furious.

    Goldberg: You're just a young punk who thinks he can run his mouth and get whatever he wants. Someone needs to put you in your place. So you know what I accept. You're next!

    He gets in the face of Matt Riddle who has a smug smirk on his face.

    Goldberg: See you at Summerslam!

    Goldberg shoulder barges past Matt Riddle, whose smiles fades slightly showing a bit of anger and hatred towards Goldberg before he turns to the crowd posing in the ring as the commentary team hype up what a big match that will be as the Future fights the Past at Summerslam. Michael Cole then informs us the United States title match is next as Chad Gable takes on the defending champion Samoa Joe.

    We get a quick video package showing Samoa Joe attacking Kurt Angle on Monday Night Raw and Chad Gable running out to make the save. Big Show puts over Samoa Joe doing the attack to get in the head of Chad Gable and to put him off ahead of this title match. Michael Cole, however, says it could have the opposite effect on Chad tonight and fire him up.

    *ELITE*

    Chad Gable makes his way to the ring getting cheers from the crowd as he is wearing an all American tracksuit, almost like he is about to compete at the Olympics. He steps into the ring jogging up and down as he is ready for the biggest match of his career tonight against Samoa Joe.

    *DESTROYER*

    Samoa Joe marches out to the ring next as he holds his United States title in the air. Chad Gable looks furious as Joe climbs over the ropes and laughs at Gable winding him up even more.

The referee passes the US title over to the timekeeper before making his way to the pair as he pulls Gable away from Joe. Joe rises up looking furious but the referee stands in between the two separating them. However, Gable breaks free attacking Joe and the referee realizes he has no choice but calls for the bell to get this match underway!

    Chad Gable is still battering the hell out of Joe in the corner of the ring, letting out his anger after Samoa Joe called him weak mentally and attacked his hero Kurt Angle on the most recent edition of Monday Night Raw. The referee starts counting and gets to 4 as Chad Gable finally gets out of the corner.

    Samoa Joe tosses Chad Gable to the side as the bell rings with the crowd booing him. The commentary team mention the aggression Gable showed at the start of the match being a good sign but Joe was able to get the Coquina clutch in and as soon as that happened it was over. Big Show tells us Gable went for the ankle lock too early and did not have his head fully in the game. If he was thinking clearly he would have waited till later in the match to go for the ankle lock but instead went for it too early.

    Joe snatches his United States title from the referee as he holds it aloft with Chad Gable only just now starting to come to, coughing and spluttering on the mat. Samoa Joe just looks at Chad Gable as he climbs through the ropes and locks eyes with Gable as he taps his head mocking Gable on the mat. Chad Gable meanwhile punches the mat furious with himself for his performance in this match as he shakes his head. Michael Cole says Gable will be disappointed in coming up short tonight and now will have to fight his way to another shot at the United States title.

She takes a moment to do some DIY as she starts to set up the table in the corner of the ring, leaning it against the turnbuckle. Becky then makes her way over to Beth Phoenix as she lifts the Glamazon up looking to Irish whip her into the table!

    Beth though fights back with a hammer punch, catching Becky in the chest before slamming Becky down onto the mat with a spinebuster! Beth takes a moment to get her breath back having been on the back foot for the last few minutes. She chooses to not go for the cover feeling there is no point as she checks her head which is still a bit sore. Beth makes her way to Becky as she grabs her from behind and locks in a double chicken-wing on the current champion! Becky is clearly in pain but she grits her teeth.

    Becky nearly gets out of the hold so Beth quickly transitions it into a backbreaker! Beth tosses Becky down to the mat and makes the cover 1 2 Becky kicks out. Even kicking out though does damage to the lower back as Becky rolls slightly away from Beth after kicking out clutching her back. Beth then looks to the table in the corner of the ring and has an idea. She lifts Becky off the mat and looks to once again go for the military press slam but this time through the table in the corner of the ring!

    However, as she goes towards the table Becky escapes the move and locks in an armbar on Beth Phoenix's left arm! Beth is clearly in pain as Becky looks to transition it from an armbar to the dis-arm-her but Beth powers herself up to her feet and powerbombs Becky in the center of the ring forcing her to break the hold! Beth takes a few seconds to check on her left arm clearly in pain even if Becky was only able to get the hold locked in for a short period.

    Beth once again chooses not to make the cover, but instead grabs hold of Becky Lynch locking her in a cloverleaf as she once again looks to damage the back of Becky Lynch! Becky once again refuses to make any visible noise but you can see on her face she is struggling. She grits her teeth though as she tries to push off the mat to get out of the hold but is unable to do so, so instead she starts to make her way to the ropes?

    The commentary team wonders why Becky is trying to get to the ropes as there are no rope breaks in a street fight. Becky gets to the ropes but she doesn't stop there! Instead, she crawls through the ropes and uses them to break the hold, escaping to the ring floor! She lands with a bit of a crash but she is happy to be out of the hold as Beth looks annoyed and follows Becky to the outside of the ring.

    Becky is still struggling on the floor as Beth gives her a kick to the mid-section looking to keep the pressure up. Beth then grabs hold of Becky lifting her into the air and tosses her towards the timekeeper's area making Becky bounce off the ring floor and lean on the wall. Beth then gets to her feet and charges at Becky Lynch hitting her with a SPEAR THROUGH THE BARRICADE!

    The wall collapses due to the power of the spear as both women lay in the wreckage for a moment. Beth would then slowly get to her feet as she takes a moment to get to her feet using the rubble to help herself get up as Becky is down on the floor. Beth would grab hold of Becky as she carries her towards the ring before rolling her back inside. Beth rolls back inside the ring as she makes the cover on Becky.

As she gets into the ring, she drops one of the chairs to the floor for a moment and drags Becky's prone body onto the chair. She then lifts the other steel chair in the air as the commentary team tells us Beth is about to go for her husband's Edge signature move in TLC matches: THE CON-CHAIR-CO! BETH BRINGS IT DOWN...

    Winner via submission and still Raw Women's champion: Becky Lynch (22:40)

    After the match, both women lay there as the referee checks on both women, with the match clearly taking a lot out of them. The commentary team put over the war the two women just went through tonight as the referee gets Becky's two titles and passes them to her as she struggles to her feet but stands defiantly in the ring. Beth meanwhile is only just coming to herself but she pushes off the medical team looking to get to her feet of her own volition.

    She walks over to Becky who stands there ready for a fight even after that 20 plus minute war as Beth stares at her angrily before offering her a fist bump. Becky takes a moment before bumping Beth's fist accepting the show of respect from the Glamazon. Beth then leaves the ring as we see Natalya make her way out to check on her friend and tag team partner Beth. She now accepts the help from the medics and her friend as they head to the back leaving The Man in the ring. Meanwhile, Becky goes back to celebrating in the ring showing off her two belts to the delight of the crowd as we cut to a network ad.

    *PHENOMENAL*

    AJ makes his way out next as the rest of the Club stand behind him holding their Raw tag team titles in the air, showing them off to the crowd. AJ Styles turns back around to the two as he too sweets the pair and walks to the ring. Michael Cole puts over how dominant AJ Styles was on Smackdown Live as WWE champion and he does have the most experience inside the elimination chamber out of everyone in this match having fought inside the chamber twice. Once in the ring he mouths off to the two men in the pods already and takes his time getting inside his pod until...


    *BRAUN/ I AM STRONGER*

    Braun Strowman marches out getting a pop from the live crowd as he stomps to the ring. AJ as soon as he sees Braun Strowman makes his way into the pod and shouts at the referee demanding he locks his pod right now. Michael Cole reminds us of the rivalry between The Club and Braun Strowman in recent times with Braun picking up the win over AJ Styles on this week's Raw. Big Show reminds us of his rampage last time he was in a chamber, where Braun eliminated 5 people, something that would normally win you one of these matches. Braun now steps into the ring as he walks to AJ's pod. AJ acts cocky now he is behind a wall until Braun slams it, shaking the glass terrifying AJ!

    *GO HARD*

    Mustafa Ali makes his way out getting a pop from the live crowd as he looks to the ring, looking happy but focused tonight. Michael Cole tells us Mustafa Ali will be starting the match with the current champion Seth Rollins.

He steps into the ring as he looks at all 4 men in the pod, with AJ once again running his mouth.


    *BURN IT DOWN/ SECOND COMING*

    The Universal champion makes his way out to the ring as he holds his Universal title in the air getting a loud pop from the live crowd. He starts to march to the ring after swinging his title in the air. As he steps inside the chamber Michael Cole hypes up the
    challenges he has had to go through to not only win the belt but also to stay champion. Once inside the chamber, the doors are locked as Seth Rollins stands across the ring from Mustafa Ali. The referee then rings the bell getting the match underway!

    6th entrant: Bobby Lashley

    Bobby Lashley makes his way out of his pod and joins Braun in the ring as the two giants come face to face. Both men stare each other down as the other 3 men in the match have rolled under the ropes selling the damage done by the monster among men. Both men stare each other down before they start throwing fists as the monsters start trying to overpower each other! As they throw massive blows neither man can gain an edge over the other.

    Lashley would look like he was going to gain the advantage due to being fresh and get Braun down to the mat after a few clotheslines. He grabs hold of Braun as he looks to lift the giant into the air, going for powerslam but Braun fights out of it and hits Lashley with a chokeslam! However, as that is happening AJ has made his way to the top rope and hits Braun with the PHENOMENAL FOREARM! Braun is on wobbly legs until he gets hit with a SPEAR FROM BOBBY LASHLEY! Lashley makes the cover

    Braun kicks out!

    However, as Braun is lying there we see Mustafa Ali has climbed to the TOP OF ONE OF THE PODS! He takes a moment before FLYING OFF WITH A 054 FROM THE TOP OF THE POD! Ali clutches his chest selling the damage he did to himself as Braun smartly rolls over so he can't be covered as the architect appears in the corner of the ring, lining Braun up and HITS HIM WITH THE CURB STOMP! ROLLINS ROLLS HIM OVER AND MAKES THE COVER!

    Eliminated via pinfall by Seth Rollins: Braun Strowman (21:52)

    You can almost feel a sigh of relief from everyone in the match as the monster among men has been eliminated from the match. However, Seth does not have any time to breathe as Bobby Lashley charges at him and takes him out of the ring, tossing him to the outside. Lashley this time doesn't want anything going wrong and looks to slam Rollins into the cage wall. He then grabs hold of Rollins's head and slams it into the cage numerous times!

    Rollins tries to fight back but after 20+ minutes of this match, he is running on empty. Back in the ring, we can see Styles and Ali are starting to battle each other with AJ trying to work over the damaged leg of Ali but Ali is holding his own as he looks to survive. Back on the outside, Lashley lifts Rollins onto his shoulders as he looks like he is about to send Rollins into one of the pods but Rollins scrambles out and LOCKS IN THE SLEEPER HOLD!

    Commentary reminds us this is how Rollins beat Walking Armageddon at Money in the Bank to keep his title as Lashley struggles in the hold. The commentary team also brings up what happens if Lashley passes out on the outside. They inform us Rollins would have to get him back into the ring and pin him as you can only be pinned or submitted between the ropes in this match. Lashley is struggling for air as he tries to find a way to break the hold. He tries slamming Rollins's back into the cage wall but it doesn't work. Rollins has his grip on too tight let go.

    Lashley does it again but it still doesn't work! Lashley is starting to fade when he gets one last burst of strength and hits a piggyback special into the cage forcing Rollins to let go. Rollins falls to the mat as Lashley spends a moment clutching his throat struggling for breath. Meanwhile back in the ring, AJ has taken control of the battle as he hits Mustafa Ali with the Three Amigos, making the cover

    Ali kicks out!

    However back on the outside, we see Rollins struggle up to his feet when suddenly Lashley charges at him and CONNECTS WITH A SPEAR THROUGH THE GLASS! Both men lay in the wreckage for the moment as Lashley is still a bit out of it due to the damage of the sleeper hold. Back in the ring, AJ goes for the calf crusher once again but Ali is ready for it and kicks him off! AJ goes for a legsweep but Ali dodges and hits an INVERTED FRANKENSTINER! Ali makes the cover

    Styles kicks out!

    Ali takes a moment to get to his feet as he wonders what to do next before he slowly makes his way to the top rope as he looks for a 054 on AJ Styles but the heart of Monday Night Raw takes too long as AJ Styles joins him on the top rope as the two men start to battle. AJ takes control on the top rope as he kicks Ali's left leg causing Ali to buckle. AJ tries to send Ali to the floor bit Ali fights back. Ali takes control and hits an AVALANCHE SPANISH FLY ON AJ! Ali makes the cover!

    The crowd lets out a massive pop as Mustafa Ali scores a huge elimination, taking out the multiple time WWE champion AJ Styles. He struggles to his feet enjoying the reaction from the crowd as BOBBY LASHLEY HITS HIM WITH A SPEAR! The mood quickly changes as Lashley makes the cover

    Eliminated via pinfall by Bobby Lashley: Mustafa Ali (25:27)

    Bobby Lashley gets to his feet enjoying the boos from the crowd as it is now just him and Seth Rollins in this match. He looks over to the broken pod, which he left Seth Rollins in and for the first time in a long time he smiles. Lashley slowly makes his way over to the wreckage, from which Rollins has not moved since being put through the glass. Lashley moves the wreckage of the pod out of the way as he drags Rollins out of the wreckage towards the ring. Lashley lifts him up onto his shoulders and climbs over the ropes before as he looks to place Rollins down in the center of the ring but Rollins counters with a schoolboy!

    Lashley kicks out!

    Lashley looks furious as Rollins was not as out of it as he thought but he looks to finish him off as he grabs hold of him with a double leg takedown and hits him with several punches, wailing on Seth Rollins. He eventually lets up as he drags Rollins off the mat and plants him with a massive overhead belly to belly suplex sending him flying across the ring. Lashley makes his way over to Rollins making the cover

    Rollins kicks out!

    Lashley at this point and looks to make Rollins suffer as he lifts him into the air and locks in the Canadian Rack as he looks to work over the ribs of Seth, trying to force the Universal champion to tap out! Seth lifts his arm in the air, teasing he might tap out but instead he counters it into a swinging neckbreaker bringing Lashley down to the mat! Rollins, however, doesn't make the cover as he is exhausted. He rolls to the corner of the ring as he sizes Lashley up for the curb stomp! He takes a moment before charging at Lashley who catches him with a SPEAR! Lashley makes the cover

    ROLLINS KICKS OUT!

    Lashley is in total shock and argues with the referee not believing Rollins could kick out before 3 after the damage he has sustained throughout the match. Lashley makes his way over to Rollins as he looks to lift the deadweight of Seth Rollins into the air as he gets ready to powerbomb him but Seth counters with a tornado DDT planting Lashley! Rollins takes a moment struggling due to the damage he has gone through in this war as Lashley rises to his feet at the same time as Rollins. Lashley swings at Rollins looking for a clothesline but Rollins ducks under him and springboards off the ropes hitting a springboard clothesline! Lashley stumbles back as Seth connects with a SUPERKICK! Lashley drops to his knees as Seth hits him with AVADA KEDAVRA NOT ONCE BUT TWICE causing Lashley to fall to the floor. Rollins is not done as he runs off the ropes and hits the CURB STOMP ON LASHLEY! Rollins however weirdly doesn't make the cover instead making his way to the corner again as he looks to make sure Lashley stays down for good and charges in CONNECTING WITH A SECOND CURB STOMP! Rollins makes the cover!

    Winner and still Universal champion: Seth Rollins (29:26)

    Seth Rollins takes a moment to get to his feet after the match selling his exhaustion after going through the entire Elimination Chamber from start to finish. Bobby Lashley lays there on the mat as the commentary put over how tough Seth Rollins is as a champion. Seth gets to his feet in the ring as he looks to celebrate but he smartly keeps his eyes on the entrance ramp ready for a cash-in attempt but there is no sign of one so he goes back to celebrating his title win tonight as the show fades to black.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Straight off the bat, great call for keeping the pre-show matches short. When you have a long show, the pre-show is going to end up very firmly skipped for me, so getting a summary in a couple of sentences means I actually took it in. Obviously no shock in either result, but on the pre show there doesn't need to be.

    First thing I wanna say about the opener is I can really tell you took the feedback about telling a story in the matches to heart, and that's great to see. I still think there's work to be done with selling the story over selling the moves, but this was already a step up from MITB, so kudos. I really started to feel Nakamura's desperation here, and him trying the low blow, it getting caught and him getting put away was a really great ending to what was a great match, and one that makes Black feel like a super big deal. If I'm really nitpicky nearly 16 minutes for the story of that match feels a bit much for me and I hope you don't go overboard with match times in this show, but still, a very strong start.

    Again, really appreciate the effort you're taking to tell a story in these matches. "Mandy looks reluctant to get in the ring given how fired up Bayley is", "she cautiously steps in the ring"... fantastic. I always say "show, don't tell" and you're really starting to get the hang of it. I think there's probably opportunity to space out the sentences a little more and maybe give more attention to some things, such as "BAYLEY MAKES THE HOT TAG!" being it's own sentence or something, just to break up the flow of the match. I'd go and look at Wolf Beast as an example of great match layout if you're unsure of how to focus on the important points more clearly. And if you're worried that it'll make the show even longer, I honestly think you could make the font smaller, which would make your shows look less intimidating. I believe these are size 3 at the moment, but size 2 is more standard and easier to follow imo. Although while I'm talking about format, I really appreciated the addition if italics to post match here, worked very well I thought.

    Anyway, putting those nuts and bolts to one side, this was another great match. Sasha being left on the apron waiting for the tag, then coming in like a super hot babyface only to cheat at the end... great storytelling. Given where this is going (and it's not bad thing it's predictable) that's a lovely little touch to hint at where her mind really is, without overplaying your hand either. Kudos also for not overdoing this match in terms of length. 9 minutes is perfectly fine for something like this.

    I thought that, while generic, that Seth promo was exactly what it needed to be, and a marked step up from your promo writing. It felt really organic and natural sounding, and I love him baiting Brock in to coming back, yet not in a dickish way. Excellent.

    Again, match length is perfect for the match you had to offer in Dolph/Andrade. The use of commentary explaining the strategy is a good call too. All round, given this was something of a throwaway match (there was only one winner, after all), I thought this did it's job perfectly.

    Great touch having Fire and Desire attack before we really got to the bottom of the Sasha/Bayley stuff. That's just note perfect storytelling. Establish a reason for the babyfaces to have an issue, but provide a noteworthy distraction that prevents them from truly following it through to it's conclusion. I really liked this.

    The Cruiser match was exactly the reason I was so excited by your idea to have Rey be the champ. He's so far above everyone else in terms of name value that just by being taken to the limit by them establishes them as someone to take seriously. Drew gained a whole lot out of really pushing Rey and refusing to be put away, but ultimately Rey retains because he's the big star. That isn't the kind of stuff people get super excited about writing when they're planning a BTB, but it's the kind of sensible booking that really wins me around, at least. As a small note - had you made Black/Nakamura shorter, having a nearly 15 minute match here would have made this match that bit more special. If you're going to have midcard matches go quite long, it's always a good idea to mark that out as something noteworthy rather than the standard time a match goes.

    I really liked the idea of the Goldberg promo, and I thought the fake out with Daivari was hilarious, and yet a good way to have Goldberg not just cut a promo. That said, I didn't think you did a great job with Goldberg's promo if I'm honest. It felt like you were cutting it, not him. There was none of the intensity of fire you'd expect from him, and felt like a bit of a rush job to just write something out and get to the punchline. As we saw in the Seth promo you absolutely can write promos, but this just didn't feel anything like what I'd expect from such a big moment of having a guy like Goldberg back.

    As for Riddle answering the challenge, I'm honestly a little confused. Firstly, you have him say "why are you avoiding me", but in terms of what I've seen here, I don't remember ever seeing him avoiding him. Is that a storyline I've missed? If you're basing it off the stuff that happened irl... firstly, I really don't like angles being set up based on the knowledge that everyone knows and cares about backstage stuff, especially when they aren't actually explained in any way. And secondly, wasn't the whole Riddle/Goldberg drama about the Saudi show, which didn't happen in your version of reality? And the infamous video of their argument was from Summerslam I believe, which hasn't even happened in your timeline yet. So what is the point of this interaction? I feel like this segment could have worked far better if you'd have played it straight, with Riddle coming out, saying he's just been drafted to Raw (why is he now on Raw, btw?), and he wants to make an impression at Goldberg's expense. That does far more from a storytelling pov than what appears to be a reference to backstage drama that wouldn't have actually happened in this alternate universe, you know?

    You know, that US Title match might be my favourite match I've read of yours. I know it seems unlikely given it was so short, but I'm all about the stories, and the one you told here was fantastic. Gable's all fired up and angry, but he's outmatched and can't see it. The match is 100mph as he refuses to not fight back, but it means he makes silly mistakes and gets caught out again the unstoppable champion. And, once the match is done, he realises it. That is a truly brilliant story, mate. I loved this.

    I really liked the way the Becky/Beth mach gradually built up in terms of spots. A common mistake is to just think "that'd be a cool spot" and chucking it in without thinking what that spot does to the rest of the match. The fact that you saved the biggest spot for the final moment of the match is, again, great storytelling. I have to be honest though and say I never really saw this as some kind of epic feud like a Becky/Charlotte or Becky/Sasha, so a nearly 23 minute brutal fight seems a bit excessive to me, especially when Becky is clearly the top star and Beth is past her peak for name value and hence the result was never in question. But I do like that it was a serious challenge for Becky that she again came out on top of, and that she got to walk away like a badass while Beth is getting checked out. The ultimate story here is Beth served as a challenge but Becky was a bigger badass and therefore won. While it didn't need 23 minutes to tell it, you've continued to make Becky look superhuman without making her unlikable, and that's been one of the highlights of this thread so far for me.

    Generally speaking you've paced this show tremendously so far, but I have a question mark over having a 20+ minute weapons match before the Chamber, especially when none of the other matches on the card had weapons in them. This ideally would have gone on one match earlier, then you have Andrade/Dolph or something in between, and then hit the Chamber.

    Man that Braun spot on Roode was brutal. I still love the idea of Roode being in this match, he's never winning it but it does no harm to associate him at that level, and man did you get rid of him in the best possible way. And then Braun breaks open AJ's pod for him! Amazing! The benefit of doing two awesome spots like that with Braun is that he now doesn't need to win to look strong. That's enough to keep him over. Great booking.

    And so is the way you eliminated him! It taking everyone hitting a big move to take him down means absolutely nothing lost for Braun. Really loving the booking of this so far.

    I'm less certain on the booking of AJ and Ali, though. I'd have thought that AJ's real focus is with Braun, so having him be eliminated by Ali (after not doing a great deal himself) doesn't do much to make AJ feels all that important, especially if he's going to continue feuding with Braun after this. Of course, maybe you're setting up a feud with Ali, which would be sick, but I feel like Ali's moment was a little ruined by being taken out so quickly by Lashley. If you're going to have Ali beat a guy like AJ and get to the final 3 despite starting the match, ideally you want a moment for people to process that, and maybe go down fighting against Lashley after giving it his all. Ali got so close to feeling really legit, but that moment really took the edge off for me, especially as you didn't even mention him after he was eliminated. Had there been announcers saying he got caught out by a rookie mistake, or if you had the crowd applaud his efforts, something to distinguish how well he did, then it might have landed better. But being eliminated like an afterthought after doing something so good minimising the impact of the good thing for me.

    Ultimately though it coming down to Lashley and Seth makes a lot of sense, and I'm glad you had Seth come out on top. Lashley is done as a title challenger now, but I have no problem with that. By having Seth go coast to coast and still beat Lahsley (and pin Braun!) really gets him over as a big time star in a way I don't think the WWE did with his title reign, and I love it. What would have made this extra special is if you'd have spent a little longer on the post match. It reads a little like you were done with writing the show and just wanted to finish it (and I know that feeling!), but really I could have used announcers going crazy about how much Seth went through and how he refuses to give up on his title and all that shit. Really sell me on the moment, you know?

    Overall, I thought this was another tremendous effort. I've provided constructive feedback, but I hope you don't take it as negativity, because I thought this was a really excellent show. You've made huge strides in your storytelling from MITB, and your pacing of the matches was excellent right up until the last two. In the future I still think you can shave some times off some matches (like the opener and the Street Fight), and make sure the ordering of matches works so you don't have two hardcore matches back to back. I also think your promos are improving substantially, but the Goldberg or Riddle ones in particular didn't feel particularly thought through in execution or purpose. I also think a smaller font would make this look a lot more appealing.

    But if you can work on those aspects, good god there's a lot to love in this. That Gable/Joe story in particular was absolutely top notch. Your booking of your biggest two stars in Seth and Becky has been note perfect - overcoming the odds without feeling invulnerable or unlikable. Aleister Black looks like a star (and wouldn't make a terrible contender to Seth going forward, actually). You sprinkled in lovely touches for Bayley and Sasha's angle, but held off of it in a totally organic way to keep the tension bubbling away. Rey as Cruiserweight Champion was a fantastic idea and you've followed through wit hit exactly as I hoped you would. Obviously OMB had a brilliant 2019 and deserved his most improved award, but holy shit am I impressed with what you're doing here. You're making big steps forward every major show you post, and if you can tighten up some of those aspects I mentioned this'll easily be one of the most exciting projects on the boards. Hell, it already is. Good work, mate, I loved this.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    I’ll echo Keefs sentiment on the pre-show. Much better idea to keep that short and to the point. Mickie is best served in this role now that her title program is finished, and while I got the USO result wrong, I’ve no issues with Cesaro going over.


    Thought the opening match was way too long. If you’re building up Black, he doesn’t need to be going 15 minutes with Nakamura, as it wasn’t a big feud, but more of an issue of progressing Aleister up the card, and he was in control for much of the match. The action was on point though, and felt authentic with Black centring his offence around his kicks, and consistently getting the better of Shinsuke throughout the contest.


    Especially liked the way Black blocked the low blow toward the end, and even though I loved Blacks set up for a second Black Mass, I feel like that’s something you could and should have kept in the locker for a bigger match down the road. I’m glad you kept Rusev and Lana in the back too, just letting this play out, while also teasing during the entrances that maybe that alliance is coming to an end.


    I’ve said it before, but I really admire how you’ve kept Jey Uso involved while his brother is out. Have this overriding feeling like he’s eventually going to screw over Hawkins and Ryder in some way eventually, but I could be way off.


    Good job in getting across Bayleys focus, not hugging and looking angry, wanting a piece of Fire And Desire. Overall, I didn’t have too much to comment on during reading this, following a fairly standard tag pattern - which is no bad thing - while continuing to have Sonya and Mandy claim their innocence; though I liked Mandy then telling Bayley they weren’t behind the MITB attack, but they would be guilty of this.


    Finish was interesting, and helps further the hints of Sasha turning eventually, whilst giving her reason for cheating her too, as she can just claim she only cheated because Mandy did first. Thought that was smart writing from you, without being overly obvious about it.


    I found the Seth interview to be pretty forced, if I’m honest. Why Renee would suddenly ask him about Lesnar when he’s literally about to go into a Chamber match on this show. That Seth spent more time goading Brock than talking about his Chamber match tonight telegraphs that he’s winning tonight and Lesnar is showing up tomorrow. Feel like the Lesnar stuff should’ve been brought up weeks ago on Raw, rather than right now.


    Bit surprising that Zelina went straight to the back. Maybe it’s so you can showcase Almas standing on his own two feet, but you can accomplish that by having Vega out there without getting involved. I liked that you put emphasis on why it’s an important match for Dolph too, as he’s been a bit of a jobber as of late.


    I also want to take the chance to echo Keefs comments about trying to add more urgency into the writing, with CAPS to point out some big moments or spacing a big spot in a match from the paragraphs. Just sentence after sentence without anything standing out particularly makes it a tough read at times when it’s all one big paragraph. You bold one or two big moves in each match and I think that’s something you should incorporate a lot more.


    I do question whether it was necessary to have this match AND the Black match on this show. With the cards already stacked, having too many matches like these which are there mostly to give the up and coming guys a PPV win, sometimes makes it feel more like an episode of Raw. Andrade winning was obvious, but I hope that you’re working on something with Ziggler eating all these losses as of late.


    Perfect backstage segment to keep the Bayley/Sasha issue on ice and force them to keep focusing on Sonya and Mandy.


    Well, that’s the MOTN. Action packed and it felt like both guys got to showcase the best of their abilities and make a tremendous advertisement for the division. With Rey as the lynchpin on the division, it’s going to make the division feel so much more important, and it’s paying dividends already as evidenced here.


    Riddle certainly isn’t who I was thinking for Goldbergs opponent at SummerSlam. Riddle has made his feelings clear on social media, but you’re going to have to do plenty of work to build this over the next month to make Riddle feel like a worthy opponent for Goldberg. Not everyone is familiar with NXT, and even at that, he hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire there, so for his first match on the main roster to be Goldberg? Big jump. Nice surprise though. Not someone I’d considered.


    Gable/Joe was awesome. Real change of pace by having it over and done with so quickly. A welcome shift, and a great little story in a short period of Gable rushing things and it costing him by getting caught in the Clutch. Loved this and I’m excited for where that’s leading.


    Might’ve been a good idea to have this Streetfight before the Goldberg segment, as it’s gives you a good break between the two long matches. As it is, this was a solid read. I didn’t think the Streetfight stipulation was particularly warranted in the first place, but you used the stipulation well, and believably in the context of it being a women’s streetfight.


    Thought the little touches; Becky smirking at the tables chants and pulling a table out, having the commentary question why she was trying to get to the ropes, and Beth delivering the Spear through the barricade and trying the con-chair-to (her husbands moves) - were all great bits of writing and added to the story of the match, put over Becky as a crowd pleaser and being resourceful. Beth using Edges moves was an awesome touch too.


    One thing I would say is that Becky recovered too quickly from the barricade spot. That should’ve led to a long period of dominance for Beth with Lynch having to suffer for a lot longer before mounting a comeback or at least showing more effects of that spot during her comeback. That was a really hard hitting but believable Streetfight, with a BIG finish to boot. The respect at the end was good too, without anything overly sentimental. The fist bump was just the right balance of respect without getting too smaltzy. Excellent effort.


    Wow. Rollins entering first stacks the deck and at least puts SOME doubt on him winning the match, so nice job there. The early stuff was what it was, but the match really picked up when Braun got in there, and used the environment to completely destroy Roode. Awesome. Braun looks like a complete MONSTER with this booking. And Roode is the right pick to go first... but what a way to go!!


    Holy shit at this booking of Braun! He’s looking like an absolute maniac busting open Pods, and I love that you took the opportunity to further the AJ story by making him go after Styles and breaking into the pod to get him out. That it took a bunch of finishes - nice 054 from the top btw - to put Braun away makes him look scary strong, losing nothing in defeat.


    Rollins is really trying to get this sleeper hold over, huh? Winning with it at MITB and locking it in twice in this match suggests it’s something you’re doing, but nice reversal of fortunes this time for Seth with Lashley surviving it and then Spearing Seth through the pod glass.


    Here’s the thing though, that’s two matches back to back with Spears through (insert object here), and with Braun already destroying two pods, it’s the law of diminishing returns, imo, and it becomes less impressive or memorable as a result.


    Big showing for Ali in the end, getting the elimination on Styles and succumbing to Lashley our of nowhere like that. His stock has certainly risen with this showing in defeat. Glad it came down to Seth and Lashley in the end, settling that issue once and for all. Didn’t like the second Spear from Lashley, and it ties into what I said before about the law of diminishing returns. Good closing sequence though with Seth making sure of the win with two stomps.


    Overall, everyone (bar Roode, but he was only fodder anyway) came out of this match better than they entered. Rollins is cemented by going coast to coast, needing that after getting quite lucky last month, Ali went deep and hung with the top guys, and Braun looked like a true monster. Lashley got plenty of shine and went down with a real fight too. Tremendously booked match outside of a couple of things ultimately feeling overdone toward the end. Really strong finish to this show, Roy. A really strong start to the year for you.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Thanks for the feedback guys. It has really made me get a lot better at writing PPV matches. On the Riddle and Goldberg stuff, Riddle has been calling out Goldberg for years for being a shit wrestler on social media but I wanted that element to be there in the background without it going full shoot. This feud was planned before the Summerslam stuff in real life but I can see how it looks like it is based off that stuff. There will be more explanation from both of their history in the coming weeks but yeah I wish I did that segment better tbh. I also should have explained him being signed to Monday Night Raw better.

    I am so glad the Chad Gable vs Samoa Joe match worked as this was a last-minute call. Originally it was going to be much longer but I realized I had 3 mid-card matches going long and this being short would be the best decision for Gable moving forward. Match lengths is a bad habitat of mine that I am looking to address (Probs why I like AEW so much
    ) but I get a chance to practice that soon when I write the Great American Bash.

    Predictions results:

    Terry Gyimah: 14

    InevitableDan: 16

    Keefmoon: 14

    Wolf Beast: 16

    Battletank: 15

    C3K: 14

    WWE.com News:

    Matt Riddle will make his debut on the Monday Night Raw:

    After appearing on last night's Stomping Grounds, Matt Riddle will have his first match as a Raw superstar when he takes on Ariya Daivari. Daivari will be looking to redeem himself after Goldberg humiliated him last night. With Matt Riddle facing the legendary Goldberg in 7 weeks at Summerslam, a win over Matt Riddle could do wonders for Daivari's career.


    3 other matches announced for Monday Night Raw:

    In other news, 3 other matches have been announced for Monday Night Raw by Paige on Twitter. Dolph Ziggler will take on Zelina Vega's latest client Cesaro in singles action. What frame of mind will Ziggler be in after losing to Andrade Cien Almas last night?

    The second match made for Raw is Cruiserweight action as the mouthpiece for Bobby Lashley, Lio Rush steps into the ring with Mustafa Ali. Rush convinced his main man Lashley to walk out on a tag match with Ali before Stomping Grounds. Ali meanwhile is coming off one of the biggest pinfalls of his career after eliminating AJ Styles from the Elimination Chamber last night. Can he carry on that form?

    And the last match made for Raw is a tag team encounter as the Raw tag team champions The Club take on Zack Ryder and Jey Uso as the pair look for revenge. Will Ryder's head be in the game and where is Curt Hawkins? Also what mood will The Club's leader AJ Styles be in after coming up short inside the Elimination Chamber?

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Sorry this is coming in so late man, but I didn’t want to not leave anything, so here it is. I’m guessing you’re already moved on from the PPV, so instead of leaving you feedback on formatting and constructive criticism, I’m just gonna read your show and tell you what I liked and didn’t like.

    It has also taken me a while to re-read some of your previous stuff, so I don’t get the storylines mixed up with your old WWE thread from last year Don’t wanna be following something or commenting on something that happened in a totally different thread. So I’m all caught up now and ready to drop by.

    Glad the kickoff show was short, as you don’t need to spend too much time going into detail on those matches. Curious to see if Cesaro ends up doing anything worthwhile after beating Jey here.

    Great way to kick off the show with these two. Two of my favorite guys in WWE. That belly-to-back suplex would have been an awesome spot to see live. Really well done writing this matchup. You’ve improved a great deal since the start of this thread, for sure. Black going over is the right call, as he has more upside right now than Nakamura. I highly doubt you will drop the ball with Black…I see a bright future for him in this thread.

    Great comedy bit here with The OC to break up the serious match we just saw. The OC are great in these situations, and you’ve nailed this one.

    Really good match here for the Womens Tag Team titles. I didn’t think you would pull the title switch here, and you didn’t need to. Boss n Hug need a good run with these titles to get them some credibility, so keep em going while they’ve got the momentum.

    Another really solid match and another great outcome. I already peaked and saw that I finished in second place in your prediction contest, but so far I’m 100 percent. My match placement was off a bit…oh well, gotta try harder next time Andrade needs a big push while Ziggler can afford to lose here. Looking forward to see where you take Andrade next.

    This CW title match was by far the MOTN up until this point. The near-falls, Gulak trying his hardest, Mysterio getting it done right at the end- really well done all around. That finishing sequence as amazing! Another time I could see myself watching this match and being hooked on the final few minutes. Very nicely done here.

    Really good segment here between Goldberg and Riddle. I’m all for a matchup between these two at Summerslam. Great way to get Riddle into the spotlight while giving the fans another Goldberg entrance, which is never a bad thing. I loved the execution with Daivari eating Goldberg’s offense and then Riddle coming out. We all knew Riddle would be coming out but you did a great job of getting to that point with Daivari as the red herring. Nice work here.

    Joe winning quickly was something you mentioned following the PPV, so that’s that. I wish Gable would’ve won just to see something different, but Joe as a dominant champ is perfectly fine with me.

    Becky was always retaining, but the match was great to read through. Beth getting in a ton of offense and both girls selling like crazy. You did a great job with the Street Fight stipulation here, as well. So now Becky shows she can hang with whoever is thrown her way, great job on this.

    Awesome Elimination Chamber match. Everything was paced on real nicely, so no complaints from me there. A few people touched on some of the storyline advancement and what not, so I won’t dig deep into that. The match itself was a very fun read. I didn’t think you’d be taking the title off of Rollins this quick, but then again I wouldn’t be surprised if you shocked us and gave us Lashley as the champ leading into Summerslam on some screwy finish. Great work. I’m sure these EC matches are a pain in the ass to write, keeping track of everyone and everything, but it all seemed to flow nicely throughout.

    Overall man, sorry it took me so long to get to this. Great show! You know what you’re doing, and I am pumped for what’s in store for the rest of the summer!

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Monday Night Raw
    June 24th:
    Everett, Washington

    Monday Night Raw starts with a highlight package showing us everything that happened last night at Stomping Grounds. Once it finishes we cut to Paige who is once again in her office as she gets ready to start the show.

    Paige: Good evening and welcome to Monday Night Raw. Last night was a great night for Raw and now we are seven weeks away from the biggest party of the Summer where we will see the newest signing to the Raw brand Matt Riddle take on Goldberg!

    A loud pop from the live crowd.

    Paige: And tonight you will get to see Matt Riddle in action as he takes on Ariya Daivari! But that's not all. You see I know Seth Rollins will already be wondering who his next challenger is but he won't have to wait till Summerslam for his next challenge. In the main event tonight Seth Rollins will take on Bobby Roode.

    Cheers from the crowd happy to see Seth in action tonight.

    Paige: However after the match, I will reveal who Seth Rollins will be defending his Universal title against in 2 weeks.

    A pop from the live crowd as Paige smiles.

    Paige: And if any of you know how I run my house, I am already getting plans in place for Summerslam whoever walks out of that match as the Univerisal champion.

    Paige lets out a smile.

    Paige: But now it is time to start the show properly with the first match of the night as Dolph Ziggler takes on Cesaro!

    We cut to the commentary team at ringside as Michael Cole hypes up the announcements by Paige as Big Show wonders who Seth Rollins will be defending his Universal title against in 2 weeks.

    *HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD*

    Dolph Ziggler makes his way out to the ring getting a decent pop from the live crowd but you can tell his heart is not in it. Michael Cole puts over how devastating his loss last night to Andrade might have been for him as Big Show tells us Ziggler will be having doubts over whether he made the right decision in turning down Zelina Vega's offer to join her group.

    *SUPERHUMAN*

    Cesaro makes his way out to the ring with his mouth guard in as he is joined by Mr. Money in the Bank Andrade Cien Almas and Zelina Vega who has a microphone in her hand.


    Zelina Vega: Cesaro look at the man in the ring. That is what failure looks like.

    Both Andrade and Cesaro laugh at Ziggler. Dolph meanwhile can't help but sigh.

    Zelina Vega: Last night both of my clients proved what my management skills can do and won their matches. Whilst the man to turn me down lost again.

    The crowd are now booing Zelina Vega as she smiles looking at the crowd.

    Zelina Vega: And people have been asking us all week. Why did we not cash in on Seth last night? I will pick the perfect moment for my client to cash in. It will be when Seth least expects it and when we are ready to take what belongs to Andrade.

    Andrade Cien Almas: Seth Rollins, estás manteniendo ese título cálido para mí.

    He drops the microphone at the top of the entrance ramp as all 3 make their way to the ring. Cesaro slides inside the ring as he and Ziggler have a stare down but you can tell Ziggler is not feeling motivated or confident tonight as the referee calls for the bell getting the match underway.

    Match 1: Cesaro w/Zelina Vega and Andrade Cien Almas vs Dolph Ziggler

    Match Summary: Cesaro controls this match from start to finish as Ziggler does not perform to his usual level lacking all confidence and motivation. In the end, it is an easy victory for Cesaro who lifts Dolph Ziggler into the air and hits him with the Ricola bomb for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Cesaro (3:22)

    Cesaro poses after the match celebrating to boos from the crowd as Dolph Ziggler slides out of the ring and storms to the back. Michael Cole on commentary wonders what is next for Dolph Ziggler as Zelina Vega and her clients celebrate in the ring.

    Ad break

    When we return from the commercial break we see Dolph Ziggler backstage as he looks to be heading towards his locker room looking devastated to have lost once again as he is stopped by Charly Caruso.

    Charly Caruso: Dolph another loss tonight, you must be wondering if things can get any worse for your career?

    Dolph shakes his head after being asked such a mean question by Charly Caruso.

    Dolph Ziggler: Listen there comes a time in everyone's career where they need a change.

    Charly Caruso: I mean Zelina Vega did offer you the opportunity to change...

    Dolph Ziggler grabs the microphone and signals for her to leave. Charly chooses to do so as Dolph Ziggler sighs before addressing the camera in front of him.

    Dolph Ziggler: Maybe I should have taken Zelina Vega's offer or maybe I should have made this change long ago. You see I have been stuck in a rut for years and last night's loss made me come to this decision. I am quitting Monday Night Raw.

    Dolph Ziggler drops the microphone and walks away as we cut back to the commentary team at ringside who are in shock. Big Show says quitting Monday Night Raw is a massive decision and it shows how desperate Ziggler is to change something in his career.

    *SKY'S THE LIMIT*
    *TURN IT UP*

    The mood quickly changes from that somber note as the Boss 'n' Hug Connection make their way out to the ring holding their Women tag team titles but they don't look happy. Sasha Banks noticeably has in her other hand the Women's Money in the Bank briefcase as the commentary team reminds us that the Boss 'n' Hug Connection retained their titles against Fire and Desire but were attacked backstage after their match with the pair unhappy after Banks held Mandy's tights to win the match. Back in the ring both Bayley and Banks have a microphone each as they get ready to speak.

    Sasha Banks: Last night Bayley got her revenge. She got to make the people who cost her the chance to win this pay.

    Sasha lifts up the Money in the Bank briefcase showing it to the crowd as Bayley looks a little confused by what Sasha is saying but shakes her head, letting her friend carry on.

    Sasha Banks: But no, Fire and Desire couldn't accept the fact we were the better team. Mandy couldn't handle me beating them at their own game. I will lie cheat and steal my way to the top!

    Cheers from the live crowd with a few Eddie chants starting up.

    Bayley: Sasha, I'm not sure I agree with us cheating to keep these belts.

    Sasha looks annoyed as she turns around to speak to Bayley.

    Sasha Banks: Bayley, sometimes you need to fight fire with fire and we did. Now we can move on and focus on going to Smackdown to defend these as well. Being on both shows and defending our titles against all comers.

    Bayley: Also we can go to NXT or NXT UK!

    Sasha shakes her head disagreeing with Bayley.

    Sasha Banks: Bayley we already won these on NXT. We proved ourselves there already. Top stars like ourselves we should only we worried about Raw and Smackdown.

    Boos from the crowd as Banks insults the popular NXT but before she can address the crowd...

    *GOLDEN GODDESS*

    Fire and Desire make their way out to the ring getting boos from the crowd as Sonya looks furious. Meanwhile, Mandy is the one holding the microphone.

    Mandy Rose: Those belts should be ours! We demand a rematch. You had to cheat to beat us.

    Sasha Banks: We didn't need to cheat to beat you but if you want to try to cheat the Boss, well she will show how it's really done!

    Cheers from the crowd as Mandy pouts as Sonya takes the microphone from Mandy and makes her way into the ring.

    Sonya Deville: You two can give us a rematch right now or we can show you what a beating from us really looks like.

    Bayley: Oh what you going to attack me again. Come on then!

    Bayley gets in Sonya Deville's face. Sonya though doesn't flinch.

    Sonya Deville: For the last time you stupid little girl, we didn't attack you.

    Mandy Rose: Hell I will tell you who I think did it. I th...

    Sasha Banks jumps on Mandy Rose laying in her with several punches. Sonya looks to grab hold of Banks to stop her but Bayley attacks her as the two teams are brawling with each other in the ring, really laying into one another. Sonya and Bayley end up by the barricade on the outside of the ring whilst Banks and Mandy are battling in the ring.

    Banks takes control, laying out Mandy with the Money in the Bank briefcase before hitting her with a backstabber. Banks would then take her briefcase with her and just when it looks like Sonya is gaining the upper hand over Bayley, she clobbers the former MMA fighter in the head with the briefcase! Sasha then checks on Bayley who says she is OK as Bayley grabs hold of Sonya and hits her with a Bayley to Belly on the ring floor! Bayley gets back to her feet as Sasha passes her one-half of the Women's tag team titles as the Boss 'n' Hug Connection head up the ramp holding their tag team titles in the air.

    *GO HARD*

    Mustafa Ali makes his way out to the ring after the commercial break getting a loud pop from the crowd. He is noticeably struggling to walk a little bit due to the damage done to his left leg last night. Michael Cole on commentary gives Mustafa Ali a lot of credit for his performance, lasting over 20 minutes and even eliminating AJ Styles from the match! Big Show puts over how big an elimination that was for Ali and how big a name AJ Styles is after his reigns at the top of Smackdown Live.

    *I CAME TO COLLECT*

    Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley make their way out to the ring but in a twist from the norm, we see Lio Rush is the one dressed to compete. Michael Cole tells us Paige made this match after Rush told Lashley to walk out on Mustafa Ali in a tag team match last week against the Club. Big Show says Ali might be glad not to face Lashley again after Walking Armageddon eliminated him from the chamber last night. Lio Rush steps into the ring looking super cocky as Lashley stands in his corner looking angry after coming up just short last night.

    Match 2: Lio Rush w/Bobby Lashley vs Mustafa Ali

    Match summary: Lio Rush before this match has never really had the chance to show what he can do in the ring on Monday nights but tonight he really shows off his high-flying skills. Mustafa Ali on a normal night would be able to keep up with this but due to the damage to his leg, Lio Rush is the quicker superstar tonight and nearly picks up the win on a couple of occasions. Lio though chooses not to target Ali's left leg during the match and in the end, Mustafa guts through his injury and Lio Rush's need to show off costs him as Mustafa Ali catches him on the top rope and hits him with an avalanche Spanish fly for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Mustafa Ali (10:15)

    Mustafa Ali gets to his feet celebrating his win as the Big Show on commentary gives Lio Rush credit for the performance he put in tonight and says he may have surprised a few people with how well he performed against one of the top stars on Monday Night Raw. As he is celebrating Bobby Lashley makes his way into the ring and picks up Lio Rush as he stares at Mustafa Ali. However, Bobby Lashley chooses to do nothing and carries Lio Rush out of the ring heading to the back, leaving Mustafa Ali to celebrate in the ring.

    When we return from the commercial break we are in a locker room as Zack Ryder and Jey Uso are sat backstage as they seem to be going over their game plan for their tag team match as the door opens and we see Curt Hawkins walk into the room with his bags. As soon as he walks into the room Zack Ryder jumps up and hugs his friend catching Hawkins by surprise, as he lets out a weak smile.

    Zack Ryder: Bro, where have you been?

    Jey Uso: Yeah uce, we have been worried about you.

    Curt Hawkins is looking down at his feet as he responds to his two friends.

    Curt Hawkins: I didn't want to show my face after I cost us the Raw tag team titles, bro.

    Zack Ryder: Bro listen, losses happen but no matter what I will be your friend and your partner from now on. You know what we need to do?

    Curt Hawkins: What dude?

    Zack Ryder: We need to find a way to get ourselves a rematch for those titles.

    Jey Uso: And you can start that tonight Uce. Listen I know this is a big chance for me but now you are here if you want you can have my spot and get your hands on those two.

    Curt Hawkins is unsure how to react as he once again looks at his feet.

    Curt Hawkins: I mean thanks but um um you two have been practicing all week and I don't want to steal your spot. But I will be there at ringside to support you.

    Jey Uso: You sure Uce?

    Curt Hawkins: Yeah, you guys have got this you don't want me letting you down.

    Zack Ryder: Curt you won...

    Curt Hawkins: Listen I'm just um going to get a drink. I will back in a minute OK guys.

    Curt Hawkins walks off as both Zack Ryder and Jey Uso sigh worried about their friend Curt Hawkins lack of confidence. We would then cut to Renee Young who is stood elsewhere backstage as she is ready for an interview.

    Renee Young: Would you please welcome my guest at this time AJ Styles.

    AJ Styles walks into the shot, followed by his boys The Club who have the Raw tag team titles on their shoulder.

    Renee Young: AJ last night you competed in the brutal Elimination Chamber match but came up short when Mustafa Ali pinned you. What are your plans going forward?

    AJ Styles: Listen what happened last night was a fluke. In a normal one on one match, there is no way Mustafa Ali would ever be able to beat me! A match like that is chaos so hopefully, our General manager sees sense and picks me to fight Seth Rollins for the Universal title!

    Renee Young: My other question is how are your boys feeling ahead of their match with Zack Ryder and Jey Uso later on tonight.

    AJ Styles: How are they feeling? They have an easy night so they are feeling great. Those two even when teaming with their normal partners aren't on their level, let alone in a miss-mash team. And I heard loser is contagious. With Curt Hawkins at ringside, he will find some way to make his friends lose and it will be … TOO SWEET.

    AJ too sweets his boys as they walk off bringing the interview to a close. The camera then cuts to Matt Riddle who is walking through a backstage hallway with a massive smile on his face as Michael Cole lets us know Matt Riddle will have his debut match on Monday Night Raw next!

    Ad break

    When we return from the commercial break we can see Ariya Davari already stood in the ring. Michael Cole says Daivari will be looking to pull off a massive upset and maybe a win tonight could give him a chance at getting revenge on Goldberg for embarrassing him last night.

    *HEY BRO*

    Matt Riddle makes his way out to the ring getting a pop from the live crowd after his debut on last night's Stomping Grounds. Big Show on commentary puts over Riddle's MMA background and his time in NXT, saying if anyone in WWE is tough enough to take on Goldberg it is the ultimate bro Matt Riddle. Matt Riddle steps into the ring all smiles as he kicks his flip flops off into the crowd and faces the snarling Daivari who does not look happy ahead of this match.


    Match 2: Matt Riddle vs Ariya Daivari

    Match summary:
    This is a straight-up squash. Riddle just lays into Daivari with several hard knees and strikes before getting Daivari down on the mat and hits him with numerous elbow strikes to the head. The referee comes over to check on Daivari and calls for the bell as Riddle has knocked him out cold!


    Winner via knockout: Matt Riddle (0:51)

    Matt Riddle drops the unconscious body of Daivari to the mat and gets to his feet getting a loud pop from the live crowd. Big Show and Michael Cole put over how impressive that win was and really puts over how strong Matt Riddle is, ahead of his match with Goldberg at Summerslam. Matt Riddle carries on celebrating in the ring as we cut backstage and we can see Lana, Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura watching the match. However, none of them look happy to be just sitting backstage.

    Rusev: I should be out there facing people like Matt Riddle. I would actually get the job done.

    He turns to look at Shinsuke Nakamura as he says that, angering his tag team partner.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: I lasted longer with Black then you did.

    Rusev: And you still lost. Hell ever since I started teaming with you all I have done is lose.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: Well maybe that is because you and your wife are losers!

    Rusev: What did you say?

    Shinsuke Nakamura: Sorry me no speak English.

    Shinsuke lets out a troll smile as Rusev responds by clocking his tag team partner in the jaw! Shinsuke gets up to attack him but Lana quickly steps in between the two men breaking up the fight.

    Lana: STOP IT, STOP STOP. Listen I know things have been tough but this team can still work. OK, please.

    Rusev looks angry but relents only because Lana is asking him to. Shinsuke meanwhile is rubbing his jaw.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: One last chance.

    Shinsuke Nakamura walks off as Rusev shakes his head looking at his wife.

    Lana: Listen trust me, I have an idea. I will go speak to Paige.

    Rusev: I will always trust you.

    Both Lana and Rusev kiss each other as Rusev can't help but smile as Lana leaves to go speak to Raw General manager Paige.

    Ad break

    We return from the commercial break as we can see Becky Lynch is sat in a medical room in a backstage area as the video tells us this was filmed last night. Becky is clearly still feeling the effects of her street fight with the Glamazon Beth Phoenix. She has both of her title belts on her shoulders as she gets ready to speak.


    Becky Lynch: Tonight I went through war to keep this title and stay Becky2belts.

    She grabs hold of her Raw women's title and lifts it into the air.

    Becky Lynch: Since Wrestlemania, I have been looking to take this brand to new heights and Beth I have to thank you. You gave the Man the fight she was looking for.

    Becky lets out a small smile.

    Becky Lynch: But I don't like looking back for too long. I'm always looking for my next fight. So, Paige, I have some business to take care of on Smackdown Live but I will be watching next week. And I expect you to find someone for me to fight at Summerslam.

    The video comes to an end as Becky sits there showing off both her belts. We cut to the commentary team at ringside who hype up Becky's performance as champion and how tough it is keeping one title let alone two. Big Show says he remembers teaming the Miz when he was a double champion and it is a tough task when one is a tag belt and your partner can carry some of the load, let alone two single titles.

    *TOP ONE PERCENT*

    EC3 makes his way out to the ring joined by his manager/ assistant Drake Maverick as he gets booed by the crowd on the way to the ring. Michael Cole mentions EC3 not being happy after losing to Tyler Breeze and Seth Rollins in a tag team match last night. Big Show tells us EC3 is someone who prides himself on having a winning mentality and losing to anyone will make him angry. EC3 is now stood in the ring as Drake grabs a microphone from a stagehand at ringside. However, he makes sure to wipe it before passing it to EC3, getting a few more boos from the crowd.

    EC3: Listen you people can keep on booing because you're looking at someone who is truly successful.

    The boos get louder as Drake Maverick looks to address them now himself.

    Drake Maverick: Hello, would you please show Ethan the respect he deserves!

    This just causes the crowd to boo more as EC3 shakes his head.

    EC3: It is fine. Carry on being jealous of my success because I didn't come out here to address you, people. No, I came out here to address someone who has disrespected me two weeks in a row! Tyler Breeze.

    Cheers for the mention of Prince Pretty as EC3 shakes his head.

    EC3: Of course you people would cheer for him. He is new money. Someone who got his wealth through unproper means. Posing on a catwalk and modeling.

    Drake Maverick: You people don't think if EC3 wanted to do modeling work he wouldn't be able to? If EC3 did modeling work he would put the rest of the male models out of business!

    EC3: I mean just look at me. It isn't just my wealth in the top one percent.

    More boos from the crowd due to the arrogance of EC3.

    EC3: But unlike him, my family worked hard for our money and wealth. I come from proper money and that is why Tyler Breeze chooses to disrespect me. So I'm calling him out to this ring right now!

    EC3 looks annoyed and has to wait a few moments but there is no answer.

    EC3: What are you sc...

    *#MMMGORGEOUS*

    Tyler Breeze makes his way out to the ring but he is joined by a bunch of girls who he is taking selfies with as Michael Cole wonders who these women are. Tyler Breeze carries on taking photos with them at the top of the ramp as EC3 and Drake Maverick look annoyed in the ring.


    EC3: Hello Tyler. How about you focus on me?

    Tyler Breeze ignores him and instead brings the girls over to a few of the fans taking photos with them getting cheers from the live crowd as carries on his antics.

    Drake Maverick: Would you show my...

    Tyler Breeze: Excuse me, uggos Prince Pretty is attending some business he will get to you two in a moment.

    Drake Maverick and EC3 in the ring look like they are about to throw a fit as the models take one last selfie with a few of the fans and Tyler before heading to the back. Breeze does a call me later motion to the girls as they head backstage before turning to face the furious EC3 and Drake Maverick in the ring.

    Tyler Breeze: Sorry EC3, every true model knows it is best to get to the party fashionably late.

    EC3 and Drake Maverick roll their eyes.

    Tyler Breeze: Now this disrespect I have shown you. Is that because I showed you up in the ring last week?

    EC3 looks angry in the ring but Tyler isn't finished as he steps into the ring.

    Tyler Breeze: I mean I know first hand how tough it can be coming from NXT but you weren't even in the top one percent down there when it came to wins were you?

    Drake Maverick: Who do you think you're talking to?

    Tyler Breeze: Not you so if you don't mind, move out of the camera shot. We don't want to put any people off their dinner.

    Drake Maverick: I will have you know my wife calls me handsome.

    Tyler Breeze: And I'm sure she would call me something else.

    Drake charges at Breeze but Breeze catches him with a supermodel kick wiping out Drake Maverick! EC3 looks furious his manager was shown up like that as he charges at Tyler Breeze but Breeze sees it coming and drops the ropes sending the charging EC3 to the outside! EC3 on the outside slams his hand on the floor as Breeze picks up his selfie stick and takes a quick selfie with the prone body of Drake Maverick! EC3 makes sure to grab his manager as he fumes going up the ramp as once again Breeze has gotten the better of him!

    As we return from the commercial break Paige is walking through the back as she bumps into EC3 and Drake Maverick. However, EC3 stops what he is doing and confronts Paige.

    EC3: Did you see what Breeze just did to me? The disrespect he just showed me should lead to him being fired.

    Paige: EC3 even if I felt in the firing mood, I just lost one of my Raw superstars tonight I'm not firing one just because he showed you up. No, if you want someone to teach him a lesson, next week you can go one on one with him.

    Paige walks off as we cut back to the commentary team who hype up that match for next week's show.

    *WHAT YOU THINK*

    Tamina makes her way to the ring getting a muted reaction from the crowd. She looks angry as Michael Cole says this is a big opportunity for Tamina and her opponent tonight Naomi to stake a claim at being Becky's next challenger for the Raw Women's title.

    *AMAZING (REMIX)*

    Naomi makes her way out getting a decent pop from the fans in part due to her colorful and energetic entrance. She looks hyped up as Big Show says we haven't seen Naomi in a while as she has been looking after her husband Jimmy Uso who picked up an injury at a house show the other month. She steps into the ring looking fired up as she gets ready to take on Tamina.

    Match 4: Naomi vs Tamina

    Match summary: Tamina tries to use her power to overcome Naomi during the match but Naomi is too much for her, putting Tamina away with a spilt-legged moonsault for the win to the delight of the fans.

    Winner via pinfall: Naomi (5:48)

    Naomi gets to her feet as she has her hand raised by the referee. Michael Cole puts over her performance tonight and wonders if she will end up being Becky's challenger at Summerslam. As this is going on we see Tony Nese walking backstage when he is suddenly attacked from behind by Oney Lorcan! He lays into him with several clubbing blows. He then drags Tony Nese up off the floor and connects with a half and half suplex laying Tony Nese out! Oney Lorcan stands over the primer athlete snarling as he speaks.

    Oney Lorcan: Weak.

    Oney Lorcan walks off leaving Tony Nese laid out on the floor, still looking angry and stoic as he walks away.

    When we return from the commercial break we see what looks like a luxury house. We can see a lot of beer bottles and red cups laid out around the house after what seems a wild party. Montez Ford comes down the stairs as we can see a clearly hungover Angelo Dawkins on the sofa. Montez takes a seat next to his tag team partner.

    Montez Ford: Dude wake up.

    Angelo Dawkins: Nah man, we partied way too hard last night.

    Montez Ford: Dude, dude we party hard every night.

    Angelo Dawkins: Dude it was extra crazy.

    Montez Ford: OK but are you going to be like this when we are on MONDAY NIGHT RAW!

    Angelo Dawkins: Lower the volume man!

    Montez Ford: Are you going to hideaway?

    Angelo Dawkins: Of course not.

    Montez Ford: So what you going tell The Ascension when we see them?

    Angelo Dawkins (weakly): We want the smoke

    Montez Ford: I can't hear you.

    Angelo Dawkins: We want the smoke

    Montez Ford: And The Singh Brothers?

    Angelo Dawkins: We want the smoke

    Montez Ford: And The Club?

    Angelo perks up at this point.

    Angelo Dawkins: Oh we definitely want the smoke.

    Montez Ford: See! There's my boy showing his swag.

    Both: WE WANT THE SMOKE. WE WANT THE SMOKE. WE WANT THE SMOKE.

    Both men are singing away as the following graphic appears on the screen.

    BRINGING SWAG BACK TO MONDAY NIGHT RAW
    COMING SOON


    *DESTROYER*

    We cut back to the ring as the United States champion Samoa Joe marches down the ramp with his US title on his shoulder as Rhyno stands in the ring ready to fight the dominant champion. Michael Cole puts over Joe's victory last night and the fact Gable made one mistake which cost him. Big Show also puts over how Joe is someone you cannot make any mistakes against as he is too complete a competitor. Joe smirks sizing up Rhyno in the ring getting ready for a fight.

    Match 5: Samoa Joe vs Rhyno

    Match summary: This is a sprint as both men throwing clubbing blows at each other but Rhyno makes a slight mistake and Joe locks in the Coquina clutch on Rhyno. Rhyno tries to power out of the lethal hold but in the end, he is forced to tap out!

    Winner via submission: Samoa Joe (2:50)

    Samoa Joe as soon as the match is finished tosses Rhyno to the side and demands the referee pass him his United States title belt! He holds it into the air showing it off for the live crowd as Michael Cole once again asks who can match Samoa Joe for power? Big Show says very few can match him for power but who can match him when it comes to the combination he has of power and submissions. Samoa Joe as this is going on has demanded a microphone from someone at ringside as he looks to speak.

    Samoa Joe: Last night, I proved I'm a man of my word. I told you all Chad Gable is weak mentally and I proved it.

    Boos from the crowd as Joe just smirks.

    Samoa Joe: There is no one on Monday Night Raw or anywhere in the world who can stop me. No one matches me in power and technical ability. You will have to take this title from my cold dead hands!

    Samoa Joe drops the microphone and walks out of the ring having sent a message to the entire Raw roster tonight. We then cut to Chad Gable who has been watching the whole thing backstage. He looks really cut up and he is watching Joe talk.

    Chad Gable: I blew it...

    ???: Every defeat is a lesson you can learn for the future.

    A man places his hand on Chad Gable's shoulder. Gable turns around to see who it is and realizes it is Kurt FREAKIN Angle!

    Chad Gable: Kurt Angle?

    Kurt Angle: I was watching your match last night and kid you got potential. But you made one mistake. You see I never got to finish what I was going to say last week. I want to give something back to the future of the WWE and offer my services as a manager. And I can't think of anyone better than a former Olympian.

    Chad Gable is unsure how to react almost in awe of his idol wanting to manage him. Chad gets up to his feet and hugs Angle catching the legend off-guard a little.

    Chad Gable: Yes I accept. But how am I going to get another shot at Samoa Joe and the United States title?

    Kurt Angle: We will work on that. I know Samoa Joe very well and I can teach you how to beat him but you're going to have to earn your way to another title match. Are you ready for it?

    Chad Gable: Oh you're damn sure I'm ready!

    Both men let out a goofy smile before walking off elsewhere.

    *RADIO*
    *DONE WITH THAT (DAY ONE REMIX)*

    Zack Ryder and Jey Uso make their way out getting cheers from the live crowd as they are joined by Curt Hawkins who walks slowly behind them. The commentary team put over how losing the tag team titles has put Curt Hawkins back to square one confidence-wise.

    *OMEN IN THE SKY*

    The Club makes their way out to the ring followed by AJ Styles as they show off their Raw tag team titles on their way to the ring getting boos from the fans. AJ meanwhile makes sure to go over to Curt Hawkins and trash talk him, angering both Ryder and Jey. Back in the ring Karl Anderson starts for The Club whilst Jey Uso starts for his team.

    Match 6: The Club w/AJ Styles vs Zack Ryder and Jey Uso w/Curt Hawkins

    Match summary: Zack Ryder and Jey Uso may not be used to each other as a team but they work well together giving a good showing against the experienced Raw tag team champions. However, The Club controls the match and show why they are the Raw tag team champions. AJ on the outside throughout the match constantly taunts Curt Hawkins, angering Zack Ryder and Jey Uso during the match. It ends up costing the pair the match in the end as Jey gets distracted by this and hits a suicide dive on AJ wiping him out but it leaves Zack Ryder isolated in the ring as the Club hit Zack Ryder with the Magic Killer to pick up the win!

    Winner via pinfall: The Club (10:22)

    After the match finishes The Club stands tall in the ring posing with tag team titles as AJ Styles their leader is brawling with Jey Uso. Jey is holding his own until the Club comes over to attack Jey Uso. Curt Hawkins gets up but hesitates for a moment, doubting himself allowing Karl Anderson to big boot him and wipe him out. They get both Jey Uso and Curt Hawkins into the ring as they look to carry on the beat down. However, as they do:

    *GO HARD*

    Mustafa Ali runs out to the ring with a steel chair in hand! He clobbers Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows in the back but AJ gets out of the ring in time shaking his head, annoyed at Mustafa Ali once again getting one over on him. The Club joins him on the outside as they trash talk all 4 men in the ring retreating to the back. Meanwhile, in the ring Jey Uso, Ryder and Hawkins get to their feet thanking Mustafa Ali for the save tonight.

    When we return from the commercial break we can see Charly Caruso stood ready for an interview backstage.

    Charly Caruso:
    Would you please welcome my guest at this time, Rey Mysterio.

    Rey Mysterio limps slightly as he walks into the shot, selling the damage done by Drew Gulak last night as he is joined by his son Dominick.

    Charly Caruso: How are you feeling after successfully defending your Cruiserweight title against Drew Gulak?

    Rey Mysterio: I'm happy Charly even if my leg is still a little sore. And I proved Drew Gulak wrong. You can use whatever style you want as long as you feel happy using it.

    Charly Caruso: And what do you plan to do next Rey?

    Rey Mysterio: I came back to the Cruiserweight division as I wanted to bring the prestige back to the division and fight the best Cruiserweights in the world. However, I feel this belt here signifies an era where the Cruiserweights were mistreated so next week I am introducing a new Cruiserweight title, bringing the division into a new era!

    Charly Caruso: Thank you for your time, Rey.

    Rey Mysterio: My pleasure Charly.

    We cut elsewhere backstage as we can see Akira Tozawa is hanging out and talking to the B-Team backstage as Noam Dar walks into the room looking cocky as per usual.

    Noam Dar: Well lookie here. Are you joining the B-team now Brian is gone? Do you need a friend that badly?

    Curtis Axel: What's your problem dude?

    Noam Dar holds his hand in the air acting innocent.

    Noam Dar: I don't have a problem, it is Akira who is the one with a problem.

    Akira looks at Dar confused.

    Akira Tozawa: Me have a problem?

    Noam Dar: Yes, I was quite clearly talking to you, ya numpty.

    Akira Tozawa: Oh OK. AHA.

    Akira shouts in Dar's face making him jump back a little. Akira walks off laughing as the B-Team can't help but laugh as they walk off too, leaving Noam Dar left stood there annoyed at being laughed at.

    When we return from the commercial break we can see The Singh Brothers are stood in the ring ready for a match as the crowd give the pair light boos.

    *ANCIENT SPIRIT*

    The Lucha Dragons make their way to the ring as Michael Cole and Big Show put over the run these two men have been on in recent weeks as they look to pick up another win tonight against their fellow Cruiserweights the Singh Brothers. Kalisto steps into the ring for the Lucha Dragons whilst Samir Singh steps inside the ring for the Singh brothers.

    Match 7: Lucha Dragons vs The Singh Brothers

    Match summary: The Singh Brothers put in a slightly better performance than usual as they get a few moves off instead of just being squashed in under a minute like usual but in the end, the Lucha Dragons are too good for them and Sin Cara picks up the win for the Lucha Dragons with a high-angle senton bomb.

    Winners via pinfall: Lucha Dragons (5:14)

    The Lucha Dragons get to their feet as they celebrate in the ring happy to have picked up another win as Michael Cole on commentary wonders if a Raw tag team titles shot might be in their future if they keep on picking up wins? We then cut backstage as we can see Renee Young stood ready for an interview.

    Renee Young: Would you please welcome my guest at this time, Seth Rollins.

    Seth Rollins walks into the shot with his Universal title over his shoulder and a big smile even though he is clearly still in a lot of pain after going through a war to keep hold of it.

    Renee Young: Seth last night you went through the Elimination Chamber from start to finish to keep hold of your title. How are you feeling?

    Seth Rollins: I will be honest Renee, I am not 100% tonight. Last night was tough but as a fighting champion, I said I would take on all comers and well as you can see I am still holding this title.

    Renee Young: How did it feel once again putting away Bobby Lashley?

    Seth Rollins: When it comes to strength, few in the WWE can match Bobby Lashley but once again I showed that brains beats brawn.

    Renee Young: And in a moment you will take on Bobby Roode, a man who had a few choice words to say about you as champion but who came up short last night. Do you have anything you would like to say to him?

    Seth Rollins: Unlike Bobby Roode, I like to do my talking in the ring. And tonight I will show him, why I am the Universal champion!

    Renee Young: One last question, do you have any idea who Paige has picked as your challenger in 2 weeks?

    Seth Rollins: She has kept me in the dark but whoever it is, I don't plan on losing this any time soon and I look forward to the challenge.

    Renee Young: Thanks for your time Seth.

    Seth Rollins walks away heading towards the ring as Michael Cole tells us the main event is up next and not to go anywhere!

    *GLORIOUS DOMINATION*

    Bobby Roode makes his way out to the ring as he is noticeably selling his back after being destroyed by Braun Strowman last night inside the Elimination Chamber and he does not look in a good mood as he walks to the ring. The commentary team talks about this being a second chance for Bobby Roode and if he wins tonight, he might get another Universal title shot in the future.

    *SECOND COMING/ BURN IT DOWN*

    Seth Rollins makes his way out to the ring holding the Universal title in the air getting a loud pop from the crowd. Seth does take his time getting to the ring clearly in a lot of pain after the war inside the Elimination Chamber. The commentary team put over the difference between Seth and the previous champion with Rollins taking on all challengers and being here night in night out. Seth steps into the ring across from Bobby Roode who gives him a dirty look.

    Main event: Bobby Roode vs Seth Rollins

    Match summary: In the first couple of minutes, both men take their time to feel each other out, clearly still in a ton of pain after going through a war inside the Elimination Chamber. Roode takes control however as he starts working over the back of Rollins and really looking to attack the damage done by Lashley last night in the closing stages of the Elimination Chamber. Rollins, however, guts through the pain and starts laying into the back of Bobby Roode. The match soon turns into a battle over who can do the most damage to the other's back but in the end, Rollins picks up the win countering a glorious DDT and planting Roode with a DDT of his own. He takes a moment to get his breath back before charging off the ropes and connecting with the Curb Stomp to pick up the hard-earned win tonight.

    Winner via pinfall: Seth Rollins (14:22)

    Seth Rollins gets to his feet as the referee raises his arm into the air as he passes him his Universal title. Seth makes sure to pose for the fans as the commentary team gives Seth Rollins credit for his performance tonight.

    *STARS IN THE NIGHT*

    The Raw Commissioner makes her way out getting a good pop from the crowd as Seth Rollins stands in the ring looking straight at Paige as he wonders who she is going to announce as his opponent in two weeks.

    Paige: Once again Seth you proved why you are a worthy champion on Monday Night Raw but in my house, I always believe in looking for the next challenger for my champion and this is a man who is always looking for a fight. Looking for the next way to test himself and he has the devil on his back.

    A loud pop from the live crowd as they work out who it is...

    *ROOT OF ALL EVIL*

    Aleister Black's music hits as he makes his usual entrance as the cheers from the live crowd get even louder as he slowly walks to the ring. Seth Rollins inside the ring, lets out a small smile relishing the challenge. Black, however, takes his time stepping over the ropes and as he joins Seth Rollins in the ring he remains emotionless. The show comes to an end with both men staring each other down as we fade to black.

    Smackdown Live
    June 25th:
    Portland, Oregon


    *SWAMP GAS*

    Smackdown Live starts with Luke Harper making his way to the ring as Corey Graves on commentary welcomes us to the show and informs us we are starting the show off hot, with the Intercontinental title on the line as Finn Balor defends his title against the monstrous Luke Harper! Byron Saxton reminds us what happened on last week's Smackdown Live with Luke Harper pinning Finn Balor during a 6 man tag and earning this title shot.

    *CATCH YOUR BREATH*

    Finn Balor makes his way out next holding his Intercontinental title in the air getting loud cheers from the crowd. He looks angry as he stares at his large opponent in the ring. Corey Graves on commentary wonders whether Finn will be able to overcome his larger opponent. Byron, however, reminds Corey that Finn Balor beat Lashley not once but twice for that title and Balor has shown in the past he can hold his own against larger opponents. Both men stare each other down as...

    *OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE WORLD*

    Buddy Murphy makes his way out to the ring confusing both the men in the match. Buddy has a cocky smirk as he gets boos from the fans as he makes his way to the commentary desk and takes a seat. Bryon asks why Buddy Murphy is out here and Murphy tells Byron that he should be the one getting an Intercontinental title shot, not Luke Harper. Both men in the ring take their eyes off Buddy Murphy and go back to focusing on each other as the referee calls for the bell getting this match underway.

    Match 1: Intercontinental title match: Finn Balor (c) vs Luke Harper

    Match summary: This a fast-paced match with Finn Balor trying to use his pace and speed to take down the larger man. However, Luke Harper is no slouch when it comes to speed and is even able to match Finn Balor and he controls the majority of the match as Finn Balor's Intercontinental title reign looks to be in great jeopardy. Buddy Murphy on commentary gives credit to both men in the ring but throughout the match tells us he knows how to beat both men and it should be him in this match, not Luke Harper.

    As the match gets to the closing stages Finn has managed to take control after staggering Luke Harper near the ropes with a dropkick. Harper leans on the ropes as Finn Balor follows it up with another dropkick sending him to the ring floor by the commentary desk. Finn isn't done there however as he makes his way to the top rope and hits a diving plancha on Harper from the top rope! Both men lay on the floor as the ref starts counting getting to a 4 count.

    Both men rise to their feet as we can see Murphy smirking on commentary until Harper tosses Finn Balor into him getting a mixed reaction from the crowd. Luke Harper picks up Finn Balor as the referee's count is getting to 7. Harper rolls Finn Balor back into the ring as the ref checks on him and gets to 8. However, Murphy sneaks around and grabs Harper's foot as he tries to get into the ring which the ref does not see. Harper kicks Murphy off but is unable to get into the ring in time and Finn Balor wins via count out!

    Winner via countout and still Intercontinental champion: Finn Balor (10:41)

    Finn Balor in the ring doesn't look happy with the way he picked up the win tonight. Luke Harper meanwhile is furious as Buddy Murphy sprints up the ramp and Luke Harper follows after him. Finn Balor now sees a replay of what happened and kicks the ropes even angrier now he learns Buddy Murphy is the reason he won.

    When we return from the commercial break we see Luke Harper is still hunting down Buddy Murphy backstage but can't find him. He keeps on looking until Murphy attacks him from behind! Murphy lays into him with several hard rights. He isn't done there as he grabs a fire extinguisher off the wall and hits Luke Harper with it, really laying into the larger man. Buddy Murphy drops it to the floor before bending down and standing over the prone Luke Harper.

    Buddy Murphy: No one cuts in line on my watch.

    Buddy Murphy walks off with a big smirk on his face, leaving Luke Harper on the ground. However he starts to slowly get to a seated position and the normally blank, expressionless Harper looks furious. We then cut back the commentary team at ringside who wonder if that was a good idea especially when Murphy has a match later on tonight with the One and Only Ricochet.

    *WAR*

    The War Raiders march to the ring getting boos from the live crowd as they are joined by their leader Bray Wyatt. He has a creepy smile on his face as he walks to the ring. Corey Graves on commentary reminds us how dominant this pairing has been and talk about them destroying everyone in their paths so far on Smackdown Live. Once inside the ring, the War Raiders stand behind Bray Wyatt as they each have their Smackdown tag team titles on their shoulders looking as imposing as ever.

    Bray Wyatt: Since I have returned to Smackdown Live, I have brought war and chaos with me. These two men have laid waste to the Smackdown tag team division.

    Both men lift their belts in the air showing them off to the crowd.

    Bray Wyatt: Even 3 of the best on Smackdown could not stop them in their march for glory as we helped an old friend in his quest to sow chaos.

    Bray lets out a creepy laugh before his face turns serious.

    Bray Wyatt: But who is next for us to conquer? Who is next to feel the effects of war? Who gets out wrath next!

    Bray stretches his arms out almost beckoning anyone to come out but there is no answer.

    Bray Wyatt: Or have we laid waste to everyone stupid enough to feel out wrath? Is there no one left for us to...

    *LOADED*

    The crowd go wild as we see The Hardy Boyz appear on the ramp getting a pop from the live crowd. They have steel chairs in their hands as they are ready for a fight. Byron Saxton on commentary reminds us that Bray and his War Raiders attacked Jeff Hardy and his brother causing them to miss over a month of action. Bray however isn't scared as he and his boys stand in the ring ready for a fight. Jeff and Matt spend about a moment or two talking to each other before the head down the ramp as The War Raiders slide out of the ring and meet them on the ramp.

    The Hardy's swing the chairs and are able to take the monsters down stunning Bray Wyatt in the ring. The Hardys turn their attention to Bray Wyatt in the ring but he escapes just in time. Both of the Hardys look annoyed as Bray retreats standing behind the fallen War Raiders as Jeff and Matt Hardy ask for a microphone each as they look to address Bray Wyatt and The War Raiders on the outside, still holding the steel chairs.

    Jeff Hardy: You thought we wouldn't come back?

    Matt Hardy: Bray I know you thrive on fear but me and my brother well we are both known for being fearless!

    Jeff Hardy: We are reckless and we fear nothing.

    Matt Hardy: And guess what? We want those titles.

    Cheers from the live crowd as Bray Wyatt snarls at the pair. Meanwhile, the War Raiders get to their feet but Bray stops them from sliding into the ring.

    Jeff Hardy: So how about it Bray? Us versus your war dogs at The Great American Bash!

    Bray takes a moment before speaking.

    Bray Wyatt: It looks like we found the two men foolish enough to feel our wrath. We accept your deceleration of war!

    Bray drops the microphone laughing as he and The War Raiders retreat up the ramp getting boos from the crowd as the Hardy Boyz trash talk the pair daring them to come fight them. However, Bray and The War Raiders choose to leave for now. We then cut to the backstage area as we can see Shane McMahon has been watching what just happened in the ring.

    Shane McMahon: Well it looks like we have a tag team titles match penciled in for the Great American Bash.

    Baron Corbin: Boss, when we beat Owens and Zayn do you think me and Elias can have a shot at the tag team titles?

    Shane McMahon: Of course you can Corbin, as long as you beat those two you can have the next shot at the Smackdown tag team titles. There will be no way for Triple H and the rest of the board to accuse me of bias when you beat Owens and Zayn.

    Corbin lets out a smile as Drew McIntyre is shown working out in the corner the pair. Elias starts strumming his guitar getting ready to play a song as the door slams open and Charlotte Flair walks into the Corporation's office! Shane McMahon gets to his feet looking to greet the Queen.

    Shane McMahon: What do I owe the pleasure?

    Charlotte looks at Shane as she is clearly furious.

    Charlotte Flair: Did you see the disrespect Asuka showed me last week?

    Shane McMahon:Yes I saw what she did to you last week but my question is what are you going to do about it?

    Charlotte Flair: What am I going to do about it? You're the commissioner for Smackdown Live! Asuka should be fired for attacking me like that! Does she not know who I am?

    Shane McMahon:I can't just fire Asuka. She will just end up on Monday Night Raw or NXT. But what I can do is give you a match with her at the Great American Bash. So you can get your payback on her.

    Charlotte gulps for a second before regaining her composure.

    Charlotte Flair: But why should I, the Queen waste my time with someone not worthy of my time? I have always been ready for Asuka.

    Shane McMahon: Well I'm going to make it a number one contender's match for the Smackdown Women's title at Summerslam!

    Charlotte Flair: I mean I should just be given the title shot due to the fact I still haven't got my one on one rematch with Becky Lynch! But fine if the Queen must lower herself to fighting Asuka to get what is rightfully hers then that is what she will do!

    Charlotte walks off and leaves the room as Shane McMahon smiles happy to have pleased the Queen Charlotte Flair at least for now.

    *FEMME FATALE*

    We return from the commercial break the Iiconics make their way to the ring but it is only Peyton Royce who is dressed to compete tonight. Corey Graves on commentary reminds us of the two matches that were made for the Great American Bash before the commercial break as the pair walk to the ring. Meanwhile, Byron Saxton on commentary hypes this up as Isla Dawn's first singles match on Smackdown Live.

    *INTRUDERS*

    Isla Dawn makes her way out to the ring, followed by her tag team partner Nikki Cross. She knees on the ramp as she seems to chanting something to herself. Commentary speculates on what she is doing as the Iiconics look confused in the ring and Nikki looks almost transfixed on her friend before she breaks the pose and heads into the ring ready to start the match.

    Match 2: Peyton Royce w/ Billie Kay vs Isla Dawn w/Nikki Cross

    Match summary: Peyton starts the match by mocking Isla Dawn. Isla doesn't take this well and slaps her in the face! Isla Dawn would control the match after this and lay into Peyton Royce with several hard kicks, using her kickboxing background to her advantage. Peyton Royce gets some offense in but in the end, Isla Dawn finishes Peyton off with Black Magic for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Isla Dawn (4:22)

    Isla Dawn celebrates in the ring picking up the win tonight in her first-ever singles match on Smackdown Live but as she is celebrating in the ring Billie Kay slides in and attacks her from behind getting boos from the live crowd. Byron Saxton berates the attack calling Billie a sore loser but before she can do too much damage Nikki Cross slides into the ring attacking Billie and get her off Isla Dawn. The Iiconics end up sliding to the outside licking their wounds after Peyton lost tonight. Meanwhile Nikki Cross hugs a smirking Isla Dawn in the ring as they have made a good start to their time as a team on Smackdown Live.

    *SPITEFUL*

    We return from the commercial as we see Alexa Bliss makes her way to the top of the entrance ramp as we can see the Moment of Bliss set on the stage but she is not alone tonight as her tag team partner over the last few months Ember Moon joins her. Both women have a coffee cup each as Corey makes a joke about the Goddess loving her coffee. The two women take a seat and let out a smile as Bliss gets ready to start the show.

    Alexa Bliss: Hello and welcome to a Moment of Bliss featuring Ember Moon!

    Slight pop from the live crowd as Ember does a fake bow smiling at her friend.

    Ember Moon: Thanks Lexi and I have to say it is going be fun being a co-host on this show.

    Alexa Bliss: Who said you were a co-host?

    Ember Moon: I mean I um assumed that since you said featuring I was a co-host. I'm sorry if I got the wrong idea.

    Alexa Bliss: Well know your place.

    Bliss stares at Ember Moon before both women start laughing with each other.

    Alexa Bliss: I'm just playing Ember. It feels nice to have a night off from dealing with the Riott Squad. But we have a message for you three.

    Ember Moon: Last week we beat you but whether it is me or Bliss who gets the chance, we want to get our hands on the queen-bee Ruby Riott!

    Alexa Bliss: But for now would you please welcome our guest, The Man, Becky Lynch!

    *CELTIC INVASION*

    Becky Lynch makes her way onto the moment of Bliss set with a cocky swagger but she is still a little sore after the war she went through with Beth Phoenix two nights ago. She holds both of her titles on her shoulders as the crowd starts up a Becky2belts chant which the Man can't help but love. She then takes a seat opposite Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon.

    Alexa Bliss: Welcome Becky.

    Becky Lynch: Thanks for having me, Bliss.

    Alexa Bliss: Our first question is how are you feeling after your title match with Beth Phoenix?

    Becky Lynch: I mean I still have this title so I'm feeling fine. I went through a war to keep this title and I will go to war again if it means keeping this one!

    Cheers from the crowd as Becky shows her usual level of confidence.

    Ember Moon: How tough is it defending both titles?

    Becky Lynch: It is always tough being a champion. You have a constant target on your back. But having both of these means I don't just have one, I have two.

    This causes the crowd to start up another Becky2belts chant which makes the Man smile.

    Becky Lynch: But I don't just wait for challenges. No, I look for them, I hunted down Beth until she faced me and if Paige doesn't find me one I will go hunting again.

    Alexa Bliss: Coming back to the A show, in 2 weeks you take on Lacey Evans. What do you think of her?

    Becky Lynch: Well I can see she is blonde. Lacey is new on the block and hasn't worked out how things work yet. She tried to cheap shot me last week but I learned to have eyes in the back of my head a long time ago.

    Becky stares directly at Alexa Bliss who just responds to this by shrugging saying off-mic she ain't going to deny her past.

    Ember Moon: What do you make of her performances so far?

    Becky Lynch: She is tough I will give her that. The girl knows how to fight but stepping up to the Man is a whole another level.

    Cheers from the crowd as Becky acts as cocky as ever.

    Becky Lynch: Look at the names I have beaten in WWE. Lacey Evans, you’re stepping up to the elite level and trust me it is one hell of a jump so you better bring everything you have if you want to stand a chance when it comes to going toe to toe with the man!

    Loud cheers from the crowd as Ember Moon speaks.

    Ember Moon: One last question...

    ???: Becky, Becky, Becky.

    The camera quickly pans up to show Lacey Evans in what looks like her home as she can be seen putting her feet up whilst wearing a fancy outfit and sipping some tea.

    Lacey Evans: Once again showing a lack of class. You fail...

    Becky Lynch: Do you seriously wear that when you're at home?

    Pop from the crowd and that dig even makes Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon chuckle as Lacey Evans looks very annoyed.

    Lacey Evans: A real lady always dresses to impress, something you wouldn't know.

    Becky Lynch: I mean I focus on winning titles and I'm doing fairly well.

    Becky shrugs looking at both of her shoulders, draped in gold.

    Lacey Evans: You ain't faced a lady like me. You talked about going through war with Beth Phoenix. What you went through was child’s play compared to what I had to do whilst in the marines.

    Mixed reaction from the crowd for the mention of the marines even if it was from the unpopular Lacey Evans.

    Lacey Evans: And I don't need the approval of you nasties.

    Cheap heat as the people cheering start booing Lacey Evans.

    Lacey Evans: Becky you may talk about being the Man but behind every great man is a better woman and at the Great American Bash, I will show how a real lady takes care of business.

    Becky Lynch: You can keep running your mouth Lacey but till you test yourself against me you're no one. Just a lady with a big mouth just like me. But the difference between me and you? I can back it up!

    Becky drops the microphone getting cheers from the crowd as both Lacey Evans and Becky Lynch stare each other down less than 2 weeks away from the Great American Bash.

    Ad break

    As we return from the commercial break Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon are walking through the back as we see the Riott Squad walk up to them. It looks like a fight is going to break out.

    Shane McMahon: STOP! We are not having a fight breaking out backstage between you guys again. This needs to end.

    Alexa Bliss: How about it Ruby? Me and Moon beat your goons how about you face one of us one on one without them?

    Ember Moon: You name the time and place, either of us will kick your ass.

    Ruby Riott: You know what? If it puts you, two girls in your place, I will take on short stuff over here.

    Ruby patronizingly pats Bliss on her head angering Bliss as she lunges for a laughing Ruby but Ember Moon holds her back. Shane McMahon steps between the pair looking to bring this to an end

    Shane McMahon: I said enough but since you want to test me to make sure it is a one on one match, it will take place inside a STEEL CAGE!

    The Riott Squad flip out on hearing that news and follow Shane McMahon as he walks away with Alexa Bliss and Ember Moon looking very pleased to have a chance to put this feud to bed. We then cut to the ring as the commentary team hype up the steel cage match next week between Alexa Bliss and Ruby Riott.

    *ONE AND ONLY*

    Ricochet makes his way out to the ring getting a pop from the crowd, though he noticeably has some tape around his left hand which the commentary team ignores. They hype up this match as a chance for Ricochet to get revenge on Buddy Murphy after last week.

    *OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE WORLD*

    Buddy Murphy makes his way out getting boos from the crowd as he points at Ricochet in the ring talking trash but as he does this, he doesn't notice a furious Luke Harper stood behind him! However, Harper doesn't wait long and charges into Buddy Murphy taking him down with a boot to the back of his head! Harper picks up the prone Buddy Murphy on the ramp and tosses him into the barricade as Harper looks to destroy him. Ricochet in the ring is watching what is going on and looks conflicted wanting a piece of both men as Harper drags Murphy near the apron but Ricochet dives over the top rope wiping both men out!

    Ricochet gets to his feet as he pounds away on Luke Harper but doesn't throw any blows with his left hand. However, this doesn't last long as Buddy Murphy grabs hold of Ricochet and he sends him into the steel steps as Ricochet slams into it with his right shoulder. Buddy Murphy smirks acting super cocky until he gets a big boot from Luke Harper! Luke Harper grabs hold of Buddy Murphy and sends him into Ricochet, crushing the high-flier! Luke Harper has a sinister look on his face as he gets ready to cause more pain until:

    *CATCH YOUR BREATH*

    That gets Luke Harper's attention as he turns towards the ramp and sees Finn Balor coming with the Intercontinental title around his waist. Luke Harper goes for a clothesline but Finn Balor ducks underneath and hits him with an overhead Pele kick as he turns around. Finn Balor quick as a flash takes his Intercontinental title off his waist and lines up Luke Harper, taking his head off with the Intercontinental title belt! The big man drops to the floor as Finn Balor stands tall over the monster until Buddy Murphy clobbers him from behind.

    Buddy Murphy gets loud boos for his actions as he starts stomping and kicking Finn Balor on the entrance ramp. He then looks at the Intercontinental title and holds it over Balor shouting this should be his. However, the trash talk goes on too long as Ricochet uses the barricade to springboard off and catches Buddy Murphy with a hurricanna sending him into Finn Balor. Ricochet looks a little regretful as he has no beef with Finn Balor but he doesn't have time to react as Harper attacks him. Buddy Murphy and Finn Balor also get up at this point leading to all 4 men throwing punches as Bryon and Corey tell us this has gotten out of control.

    *HERE COMES THE MONEY*

    Boos from the crowd who are getting a little bit sick of Shane McMahon who has been all over the show tonight. However, Shane McMahon does not look happy as he sighs before speaking.

    Shane McMahon: Alright that is enough stop this right now!

    However, all 4 men ignore him too at which point Shane looks wound up as the crowd let out a let them fight chant.

    Shane McMahon: OK stop this right now or all 4 of you are suspended!

    At this point, all 4 men do stop as Shane McMahon said as the Smackdown Live commissioner looks happy to have restored some order and looks to carry on.

    Shane McMahon: Now I know you people love seeing me out here but remember that this show is about the superstars.

    That gets loud boos from the crowd but Shane McMahon doesn't care letting out a cocky smile before turning back to the four men on the entrance ramp.

    Shane McMahon: Now you four want a piece of each other, well at the Great American Bash it will be Finn Balor versus Ricochet vs Buddy Murphy vs Luke Harper for the Intercontinental Title in a Fatal 4-way match!

    A loud pop from the crowd as all 4 men stare each other down after that announcement as Finn Balor stands in front of the 3 holding his Intercontinental title in the air, as all 3 eye the title up.

    Ad break

    *FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES*

    Daniel Bryan makes his way out to the ring in a flannel jacket with his hemp WWE title around his waist, not dressed to compete as it is Erick Rowan who is going to be in action tonight. Corey Graves says The Miz made the worst decision of his career expecting to beat Erick Rowan, calling him as smart as Daniel Bryan. Byron, however, put The Miz over as one of the hardest working wrestlers in the company today and he will have been working out a way to beat Erick Rowan all week.

    *I CAME TO PLAY*

    The Miz makes his usual flamboyant entrance as he points at Erick Rowan in the ring and charges to the ring making sure to give Daniel Bryan a few choice words as he steps inside before turning his attention the larger man stood across the ring from him. The referee then calls for the bell getting this match underway.

    Match 3: Erick Rowan w/Daniel Bryan vs The Miz (If Miz wins Bryan will face him at GAB):

    Match Summary: The Miz goes after the legs of Rowan early, as he tries to cut the big man down to size but Rowan is smart enough to see it coming and sends The Miz off, onto the mat. Erick Rowan from there spends the next few minutes controlling the match with his power as The Miz struggles to stay alive. On the outside, Daniel Bryan makes sure to trash talk The Miz and call him soft.

    However, The Miz makes a fightback about halfway through the match and looks like he is in control. This prompts Daniel Bryan to trip Miz up and cut off his momentum. The referee tells Bryan off who acts innocent but he did his job as Erick Rowan takes control of the match from there. He works over The Miz who refuses to be put away. On the outside of the ring, we can see Daniel Bryan getting more and more frustrated by Miz's will to win this match.

    The Miz is even able to counter Erick Rowan and locks the big man in a figure four leglock. Rowan struggles in the hold as The Miz wrenches it back with all of his might but he can't quite get Rowan to tap out. Bryan realizing his friend is in trouble pushes the ropes towards him, which allows Rowan to reach them and forces Miz to break the hold! The referee, however, sees this and sends Bryan to the back. Bryan, however, refuses to do this and starts arguing with the referee.

    As he is doing this, however, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens appear behind Daniel Bryan and attack him from behind, laying into the planet's champion on the ramp. Erick Rowan in the ring slams The Miz down to the mat and turns to the ramp threatening Zayn and Owens. However Miz uses this to his advantage kicking Rowan in his bad leg before turning him around and planting him with the Skull Crushing Finale! Miz rolls Erick Rowan over and makes the cover. 1 2 3 The Miz picks up the win and will face Daniel Bryan at the Great American Bash!

    Winner via pinfall: The Miz (8:24)

    The Miz celebrates in the ring as Corey Graves goes mad saying Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn should be in the back minding their own business. Byron mentions Bryan's interference as well as the recent troubles Owens and Zayn have had with the Corporation as well the alliance with The Miz, so they had every right to be out here to even the score. The Miz celebrates in the ring with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn as Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan lick their wounds on the outside.

    *HERE COMES THE MONEY*

    The boos are getting very loud as Shane McMahon makes his fourth appearance on the show. He doesn't look happy as Kevin Owens is already rolling his eyes in the ring.

    Shane McMahon: Well done Miz. You had to cheat to win but once again Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn had to show their total disrespect for authority.

    Kevin Owens shrugs not disagreeing whilst Sami Zayn shouts “you're damn right!”

    Shane McMahon: But since you are out here already let's have the Corporation face you and Reigns right now!

    Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, and Elias appear as they follow Shane McMahon to the ring ready for a fight. The Miz stands in the ring ready to fight with Owens and Zayn even if the numbers surrounding the ring are 5 on 3.

    *THE TRUTH REIGNS*

    Roman Reigns sprints to the ring and attacks Drew McIntyre brawling with him as both men head towards the ring. Corey Graves on commentary tells us we are going to a commercial break as we try to get some order and tells the fans not to go anywhere.

    Ad break

    Match 4: Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn w/The Miz vs The Corporation (Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin and Elias) w/Shane McMahon, Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan

    Match Summary: When we return from the commercial break Sami Zayn is in the ring wrestling Baron Corbin, as the former Raw general manager works over Sami Zayn as the commentary team inform us The Miz stayed at ringside to support Reigns, Owens and Zayn whilst Shane, Daniel Bryan and Rowan stayed at ringside to support the Corporation in this match. This ends up being your standard 6 man tag on TV which goes on until Roman Reigns gets the hot tag!

    He runs through the Corporation in the ring like a man on fire. Meanwhile, on the outside, Bryan low blows The Miz and climbs onto the apron to distract the referee. Erick Rowan whilst this is going on takes Owens and Zayn off the apron attacking both out of the view of the referee as Shane McMahon slides into the ring looking to take down Reigns but the Big Dog hits him with a Superman Punch. However, as he turns around Drew McIntyre the legal man catches him with a CLAYMORE! Reigns is down as Bryan jumps off the apron and the referee makes the count. 1 2 3! DREW MCINTYRE HAS PINNED ROMAN REIGNS!

    Winners via pinfall: The Corporation (10:28)

    Drew McIntyre gets to his feet as he lets out an angry snarl as he just stares at the prone Roman Reigns on the mat, satisfied with his handiwork for now. Shane McMahon is still down outside the ring as The Eco Warriors, Baron Corbin and Elias join Drew McIntyre in the ring as they stand tall, once again using the numbers game to their advantage. Meanwhile, The Miz, Owens and Sami Zayn stand on the outside looking annoyed the Corporation picked up another win over them.

    Ad break

    As we return from the commercial break we can hear some loud Mexican music playing as we see the Lucha House Party boys stood in front of a colored wall as they face the camera.

    Lince Dorado: Jack Gallagher, Aiden English or as you like to call yourself the Gentleman.

    Gran Metalik: No tienen clase.

    Lince Dorado: Exactly Metalik, they have no class. You hide behind your façade of being Gentleman but you use cheap tricks to get your way. But that is fine because your challenge?

    Gran Metalik: Aceptamos

    Lince Dorado: And we will teach you the true power of Lucha Libre on the Great American Bash pre-show.

    Gran Metalik: LUCHA LUCHA

    Both men carry on chanting as we cut back the commentary team who start to run down the confirmed Great American Bash card as well as the newly added pre-show match.

    *MAKING MOVES*

    Titus O'Neil makes his way to the ring getting a fairly muted reaction from the live crowd but he makes sure to slap hands with a few fans in the crowd, who are probably hoping he falls under the ring again. Commentary whilst this is going on, carry on hyping the upcoming Great American Bash.

    *SHER (LION)*

    Jinder Mahal makes his way out next getting some boos from the crowd. Corey Graves on commentary hypes Jinder Mahal up and reminds the people listening, that Jinder Mahal is a former WWE champion whether we like it or not. He slides in the ring coming face to face with Titus O'Neil as Byron Saxton mentions this could be a chance for two lesser-seen guys on Smackdown Live to impress Shane McMahon.

    Match 5: Jinder Mahal vs Titus O'Neil

    Match Summary: Thankfully this is a very short match with both men looking to take the other out quickly with power moves but in the end, Jinder Mahal picks up the win as he hits Titus O'Neil with the Khallas for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Jinder Mahal (3:22)

    Jinder gets to his feet as he celebrates in the ring getting boos from the live crowd as Corey wonders if this could be the start of Jinder getting back to the top of WWE.As Jinder Mahal is celebrating in the ring we cut to what looks like a gym but it is seemingly empty. Empty minus Asuka who is stood in there as she lays into a punching bag with several stiff kicks as she can be heard muttering to herself.

    Asuka: You won't be ready, You won't be ready.

    As she is repeating that line to herself, the kicks get stiffer and the bag starts flying further as Asuka is firing herself up.

    Asuka: YOU WON'T BE READY!

    She gives the punching bag one final kick which causes the chain to break and the bag to fly off, as the camera zooms in on Asuka's face as she looks the angriest we have ever seen her. We then cut back to the commentary team who hype up how determined Asuka will be to defeat Charlotte. The camera then cuts backstage as it shows New Day stood next to each other Xavier Woods gives his boys a hug before they make their way to the ring as Byron tells us Xavier Woods will make his return next.

    Ad break

    Big E: Portland, Oregon. Don't you dare be sour clap your hands for your world famous five-time tag team champions and feel the power!

    *NEW DAY, NEW DAY*

    All 3 members of the New Day make their way to the ring getting a loud pop from the live crowd but they don't do there usual song and dance as they make their way to the ring, led by Kofi Kingston who has his WWE title on his shoulder as Big E and Xavier Woods follow behind him. Byron Saxton reminds us that this is the first time we have seen the New Day together as a group since Money in the Bank. All 3 men are in the ring as Xavier gets ready to speak.

    Xavier Woods: Y'know normally I wouldn't mind a bit of time off. I mean have upupdowndown to run.

    Pop from the crowd with a few upupdowndown fans in the crowd.

    Xavier Woods: However there is no fun in what happened. Randy Orton attacked me when I was alone and I wish I knew who it was at the time so I could have warned you two.

    Kofi Kingston: Xavier you don't have to worry about anything. I'm going to teach Randy a lesson I should have taught him 8 years ago!

    Cheers from the fans as Kofi is clearly fired up.

    Xavier Woods: I have known Kofi for years. Kofi, Big E and I are brothers. We are best friends and I know him better then I know myself. I knew how much winning the WWE title would mean to him. Hell, it has been one of the main goals of the New Day.

    Big E: Get Kofi the WWE title reign he deserved.

    Loud cheers from the crowd as they start chanting “you deserve it”. Kofi can't help but smile at the kind words from the fans.

    Xavier Woods: And I know how much you want to make Randy Orton pay. Not just for what he did to me but what he did to you 8 years ago.

    Woods takes a moment walking forward.

    Xavier Woods: Randy Orton is the main reason Kofi never got the chance he deserved. He was the original Daniel Bryan. He was the man stood at the top keeping Kofi down. But before you beat him at the Great American Bash, I want a match with him myself.

    Cheers from the crowd as Big E and Kofi Kingston looks worried.

    Kofi Kingston: Xavier are you sure that is a good idea? He just put you on the shelf for a month and I know Randy. He doesn't feel remorse. He takes pleasure in hurting people and damaging their careers. He will try to do the same thing again!

    Xavier Woods: I know you are trying to protect me but no one messes with you and gets away with it. I know Randy doesn't care about hurting me, he just wants to hurt you and he knows how to do it. And I refuse to let someone get away with hurting one of my best friends!

    Kofi looks unsure how to respond, still not wanting his friend to put himself in harms way against Randy Orton but before he can respond...

    *VOICES*

    Randy Orton slowly makes his way to the entrance ramp as all The New Day are ready for a fight.

    Randy Orton: Yes Kofi, why don't you let your friend Xavier into the viper's den?

    Kofi Kingston: How about I come down there right now and beat you around the whole arena for old time's sake?

    Loud cheers from the fans as Randy Orton shakes his head.

    Randy Orton: Do I look STUPID?

    Boos for the dig at Kofi as Woods shakes his head knowing exactly what Randy is referencing.

    Randy Orton: No, I refuse to fight 3 on 1. I fight on my terms. When you're a legend, you pick when you fight. Maybe when you get to be a 13-time champion you will realize what it is like at the top.

    Kofi Kingston: I mean I already know what it is like to be at the top.

    Kofi shows off his WWE title as Randy smirks.

    Randy Orton: Winning that title, it makes you one of the greats. But you will never be on my level. I spent my career not just killing legends but killing the careers of people like you and your boy Xavier!

    Xavier looks angry now as Kofi and Big E looks to keep him calm.

    Randy Orton: You're weak and STUPID Kofi. I stopped your rise before and I will stop it again with the three most dangerous letters in wrestling R K

    Xavier Woods: Enough! You want to attack me backstage, fine I have had to deal with injuries before but you will not use me as a tool to mess with my best friend. Next week how about you fight me face to face like a man!

    Randy smiles.

    Randy Orton: OK I accept. On one condition. Kofi Kingston and Big E are banned from ringside!

    Boos from the live crowd as Randy smirks.

    Randy Orton: I'm not STUPID! I know if they are at ringside they will get involved. Come on Woods how badly do you want a piece of me?

    Kofi Kingston: Woods this is a bad idea. You don't want to fall for his trap.

    Xavier Woods: Kofi I know this is a trap, I've played enough video games to know that but I need to show Orton he can't mess with you by messing with me. Randy Orton, I accept!

    Randy Orton lets out a sinister smile as Big E and Kofi Kingston look really worried as they know their friend could be putting himself in great danger. However, Xavier Woods looks fired up as Smackdown Live comes to a close with The New Day staring down the Viper Randy Orton.
