    Mod note: I felt like making a new thread for a while and wanted to do current WWE still. I will be doing two or three things at the start of the thread which I will comment on when that happens that may be a bit unrealistic or very but I have reasons for doing them. NXT and NXT UK will happen in the background. Won't be writing NXT shows as 4 shows is too much so will just post takeover results when the events happen. 205 Live I will get to as well in a few shows time.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Good luck with this my friend. I was a huge fan of your other thread, so I am excited to see what you have planned for this. Tons of different ways to go with current day storylines and rosters, plus the added notion of AEW knocking on the door. I’ll definitley be reading.

    Good luck with this RM. No way you can do any worse than the current product. (Don't take that as a personal challange, btw.) You have shortage of great workers to work with. Its just coming up with a coherent story for them.

    Good luck with this mate. As Rhyno said, the talent is there, so it's all about making me care about them. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    News updates:

    On tonight's Monday Night Raw expect massive announcements for the future of the company. Rumour has it some of these changes will affect 205 Live as well as Raw and Smackdown. WWE wants to go back to making the brands separate again due to the deal with Fox in October. What these means for the Women tag team titles and the Women title situation on both brands with Becky holding both titles is unsure but expect her to be on Monday Raw only when she loses the Smackdown Women’s title.

    Meanwhile in other news expect Brock Lesnar to once again take some time off from the WWE after his Universal title loss to Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania 35. When he will return is unclear but there will be a return at some point. Also, there was a rumour flying around that Brock Lesnar would return at Money in the Bank and win. However, most sources backstage say this is ridiculous and wild speculation.

    One of the most interesting pieces of news is Vince McMahon taking a more hands-off approach backstage. With the upcoming XFL Vince is looking to step away for the moment and leave things in the hands of Stephanie McMahon and HHH. Expect them to be on TV a whole lot less soon due to this. Meanwhile Shane McMahon after his recent heel turn may play a big role in TV in the coming months as WWE feel that this story-line can be used to help other characters grow.

    Luke Harper, Sasha Banks and The Revival all asked for their releases over Wrestlemania weekend but they have all been denied. The reason is WWE sees them as too valuable to lose and will be spending time in the coming months trying to find a way to convince them to stay.

    Also having returned from retirement Beth Phoenix will be staying with the main roster for the time being. WWE are looking to help get the Women's tag team division off the ground and whilst the plan is to have the belts defended on occasion in NXT and NXT UK, they felt the need for another team on the main roster and we may see more NXT calls up soon to help bolster the Women's division on both brands as they want to make sure they have enough depth for a Women's tag team division.

    In the most shocking development in the last few weeks WWE have been forced to cancel the Saudi Arabia deal due to pressure from their sponsors. Whilst they had not been popular with the fans, they did generate an insane amount of money for the company. The rumour is WWE may run a few extra house shows in that country to make up for this decision.

    Post-mania injury updates:

    Nia Jax and Sheamus have come out of Wrestlemania with injuries. Sheamus has been suffering long term with back issues and the time scale for his return is unknown. Nia Jax meanwhile tore both her ACL's and could be out for many months not expected to return until at least the Royal Rumble next year. This causes an issue for WWE as one of Becky's first feuds on Monday night Raw was going to be Nia Jax. Who takes her spot remains to be seen.

    Dean Ambrose, Lars Sullivan and Goldust leave WWE:

    Dean Ambrose's departure from WWE was already announced but with him being removed from the roster page it seems he has already made his final appearance in WWE. Meanwhile Goldust has been granted his release from WWE. A lot of people felt he would have wanted to go to AEW with Vince unwilling to let him go but HHH convinced Vince it would look bad to keep Cody's brother in WWE against his will especially when he is not being used.

    Also leaving WWE is Lars Sullivan. Due to his panic attack before an episode of Raw he did not make his début on the main roster. Lars in the end requested his release stating he could not handle being on TV due to his anxiety. Whether someone gets a monster push in his place is yet to be seen.



    Mod note here: Yes, I was not going to book the Saudi shows and felt the need to make that clear from the off. The network events that will be taking place throughout the year will be made clear after the first Raw is posted. First two shows for each brand will be recaps to get the roster set before I start writing full shows.

    Money in the Bank Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Raw:
    April 8th 2019
    Brooklyn, New York

    The show with Becky Lynch making her way out to a massive pop. She talks about overcoming Ronda and Charlotte at Wrestlemania to become champ champ and talks about wanting to take on all comers. Says she finally proved that Ronda is not the baddest women on the planet and asks who is next for Becky2belts. Bayley comes out. Mentions losing the tag team titles at Wrestlemania and that Sasha is taking some time off. Becky makes a joke about Sasha which annoys Bayley a little. Bayley would then challenge Becky to a match for the Raw Women's title in the main event. The man agrees as the pair shake hands making the match official for later in the show.

    Ad break

    Match 1: Chad Gable and Bobby Roode vs Ricochet and Aleister Black

    Chad Gable and Bobby Roode come into this match having had a hard time recently. Meanwhile, Black and Ricochet have been on a roll a team and look to keep that form going. Throughout the match, Roode does not seem to want to be here whilst Gable is putting in all the work trying to pick up the win. In the end, a miscommunication between Roode and Gable allows Black to hit the Black Mass on Roode taking care of him whilst Ricochet hits Gable with the 630 senton to pick up the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Ricochet and Aleister Black (13:42)

    After the match Ricochet and Aleister Black celebrate heading up the ramp as Ricochet slaps hands with the crowd whilst Black remains stoic walking up the ramp. In the ring, Roode steps inside and helps Gable up to his feet. He takes a moment talking to his young partner before dropping him with a lariat to boos from the crowd. Roode beats down Gable before hitting him with the glorious DDT! He makes his way up the ramp and mocks the crowd as Gable is left laid out in the ring bringing an end to their tag team.

    Ad break

    Charly Caruso is backstage and asks Bobby Roode as he is walking through the back why he did that to his partner Gable. Roode says he has been dragged down for too long and now will become the glorious one like he always should have been. Once he says that he carries on walking leaving Charly stood there. The camera then cuts to Beth Phoenix and Natalya who are talking backstage as Beth tells Natalya she plans to stick around for a while and that getting back in the ring felt great. She also says she wants the Women tag team titles something that was never around when she was a wrestler in the past. The Iiconics appear and mock the pair in typical Iiconics fashion. The Divas of doom challenge them to a fight but the pair refuse walking off as Beth and Natalya shake their heads.

    Ad break

    Match 2: Alexa Bliss vs Dana Brooke

    An average match as Alexa Bliss carries on her return to the ring picking up the win with Twisted Bliss.

    Winner via pinfall: Alexa Bliss (7:23)

    Ad break

    The McMahons make their way out after the commercial break. The first announcement is next week the Superstar shakeup will still be taking part. However, they also announce that both shows will be under new stewardship in the coming months as the McMahons have their focus elsewhere and want the show to be about the stars. Shane declares that however Smackdown has always been his show and he will stay running it himself which noticeably makes HHH very annoyed as he can be heard saying that we didn't agree to that. Stephanie calms her husband down as Vince says nothing. HHH carries on by saying that there will be a new commissioner for Monday Night Raw and they will make themselves known next week.

    Vince McMahon then announces that after Money in the Bank he wants the brands to start competing against each other and therefore has announced there will be the return of separate Pay-per-view events for each show. Shane McMahon then makes an announcement saying that he feels that they give the WWE universe too much and therefore 205 Live after this week will be canceled! Boos from the crowd as HHH in the background looks to speak to Shane but Vince tells him he agrees with Shane muttering something about beef like a crazy old man.

    However, before an argument can break out Drake Maverick appears. Drake asks what happens to him. Shane mocks him and tells him he is no longer needed as a general manager. When Drake protests Shane tells Drake if he keeps arguing he will also be fired before telling him he will have a match after the commercial break with this man. Baron Corbin's music hits to boos from the crowd with Drake looking worried as the show goes to an ad break.

    Ad break

    Match 3: Baron Corbin vs Drake Maverick

    Baron Corbin bullies his smaller opponent and to add insult to injury picks up the win with the ankle lock getting massive heat from the crowd for using Kurt Angle's signature move!

    Winner via submission: Baron Corbin (4:12)

    Baron Corbin carries on beating down Drake Maverick after the match until Apollo Crews runs out chasing off Baron Corbin saving Drake Maverick from any further damage. EC3 meanwhile is shown watching all this happen backstage as he oddly lets out a smile.

    Ad break

    Elias sits in the ring complaining about what happened at Wrestlemania until he says a line about the next person to come out getting these hands which leads into a Braun Strowman appearance. Braun destroys him before smashing Elias with the guitar to end the segment!

    Backstage interview with Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley. Lashley and Rush whine about the demon king that Finn Balor became calling Finn a cheat and the win a fluke. They also say it is time for him to move on to bigger foes and better foes.

    Short promo from Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder celebrating their win at Wrestlemania until the Ascension comes out. The Ascension mentions they are still the longest-reigning NXT tag team champions of all time and challenge the pair to put their titles on the line right now! Ryder and Hawkins agree as the show goes to an ad break.

    Ad break

    Match 4: Raw tag team titles match: Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder © vs The Ascension

    The Ascension put on a decent showing against the tag team champions but, in the end, they are unable to put away Hawkins and Ryder who pick up the win with double top rope elbow drops for the win!

    Winners via pinfall and still Raw tag team Champions: Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder (9:16)

    As the Raw tag team champions celebrate in the ring The Revival makes their way out to the ring getting boos from the crowd. They ask for a microphone from someone at ringside. They tell Hawkins and Ryder their win at Wrestlemania was a fluke and that they want a rematch as soon as possible. Ryder and Hawkins, however, each grab a microphone mocking them asking how they feel about being the 1 in 269? The Revival look furious before Ryder tells the pair that the losing streak is now turning into a winning streak and promise to beat whoever tries to take these titles from us WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT. The champions stand in the ring as The Revival looks on.

    Ad break

    When we come back from the ad break, we hear Seth Rollins's music hit as he walks to the ring with his Universal title in his hands. He takes a moment to stand at the top of the ramp before hand-banging with the title above his head waving it about to the delight of the crowd. Once he is done, he makes his way into the ring enjoying the reaction from the crowd who are probably happy to see any new champion just so the belt appears on TV.

    Once in the ring, he talks about being happy to once again be at the top of the WWE. He says someone needed to end Brock's reign of terror and I promised to do it by any means necessary. He talks about the fact Brock attacked him before the match and if Brock is going to bend the rules, well so I am. Rollins looks to carry on when we hear the music for Paul Heyman as he walks to the ring not looking happy.

    He joins Seth Rollins in the ring and tells him this is not what a champion looks like. He calls Rollins a coward and says he is lying to himself. He says Rollins cheated to beat Brock as he knew he couldn't get it done 1 vs 1 fair and square. Rollins rolls his eyes before telling Heyman how about Brock says it to his face! Heyman tells Rollins fine. Brock's music plays to a pop from the crowd but turns to boos when they realise he isn't here!

    Paul Heyman tells Seth Rollins, Brock has gone back home to think about every possible way he can hurt him, every possible way he can victimize him and when the time is right, he will eviscerate Seth Rollins. Rollins looks unfazed and asks Heyman if he is done? Heyman says he is as he looks to leave but Rollins grabs hold of Heyman whose face turns to pure fear! Rollins tells Heyman it is time for him to send a message. He hits Heyman with a ripcord knee dropping him to the mat before Seth runs off the ropes and hits a curb stomp to loud cheers from the crowd! Rollins leaves Heyman in the ring down and out as the medical team comes in to check on the advocate as the show goes to an ad break.

    Ad break

    Match 5: Finn Balor vs Tyler Breeze

    Finn Balor gets loud cheers from the post-mania crowd whilst the reaction for Breeze is noticeably smaller. Balor plays up a lot to the fans showing off his newly won Intercontinental title whilst Breeze looks focused in the ring. Once the match starts Finn is noticeably a bit tired but is in control and looks like he will pick up the win as usual but Breeze fights back surprising the crowd!

    He starts to give the Intercontinental champion a pounding looking fired up to prove himself tonight and the crowd is getting into him. It looks like he might pick up the win as in the closing stages he looks to go for the Unprettier but Finn escapes out of it before kicking Breeze in the gut and planting him with 1916! Balor wastes no time making his way to the top rope as flying off and hitting the coup de grace for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Finn Balor (14:30)

    After the match, Finn Balor rises to his feet being handed his Intercontinental title as he knows he had a very tough match tonight. Tyler Breeze also gets up as Finn Balor offers him a handshake showing respect to Tyler Breeze due to how far he pushed him tonight. Breeze takes a moment or two before accepting the handshake from Finn Balor to a pop from the crowd.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Smackdown:
    April 9th 2019
    Brooklyn, New York


    Shane McMahon, the commissioner for Smackdown Live makes his way out getting massive boos from the crowd as he makes sure to come to the ring with Best in the World trophy by his side. He mocks the fans, The Miz and Miz's dad as he gloats about the fact, he won the falls count anywhere match at Wrestlemania. He then tells the crowd that they don't need to worry as this will still be the land of opportunity but only for the people who I feel are worthy.

    Shane promises changes to the Smackdown live roster and says he will make sure that anyone who joins Smackdown Live will know he is the best in the world! He gets Justin Hamilton to do the signature announcement as he shuts his eyes meaning he does not see The Miz run out with a steel chair! Miz slides into the ring and smashes it into his back. He goes for another shot but Shane rolls out of the ring like he has been shot. Miz, however, does not follow after him. Instead, he demands a microphone. The Miz tells Shane he is far from done with him and that one chair shot is not enough revenge for what he did. He tells Shane you stabbed me in the back, you insulted my father but not only that but you also attacked my father.

    He then stands over the ropes as Shane is crawling up the ramp. He tells Shane he knows he plans to draft him to Monday Night Raw but he spoke with HHH on Monday night. He said HHH's and Stephanie's final action before you took full control of Raw was making sure that you could not fire or trade me without my permission, giving me an iron-clad contract. Shane looks terrified as Miz smirks telling Shane he won't stop fighting till he brings Shane down to earth and proves he is not the best in the world but the worst in the world. The Miz then turns to the best in the world trophy in the ring as Shane begs Miz to leave it alone. The Miz, however, smiles before smashing it with a steel chair and destroys the trophy in the ring. Shane looks devastated on the ramp as The Miz holds the steel chair in the air to cheers from the crowd as the show cuts to a commercial break.

    Ad break

    When we come back, we see Sin Cara waiting in the ring for his opponent getting a small reaction from the crowd. Commentary mentions that this is his return to the ring. Harper's music then hits as he walks to the ring having returned to the company during the Andre the Giant battle royal.

    Match 1: Sin Cara vs Harper

    Harper squashes Sin Cara in a short match as he throws Sin Cara around like a rag doll.

    Winner via pinfall: Harper (2:47)

    After that match we cut to a promo of Lacey Evans stood backstage in a fancy outfit as she looks to the camera holding a hankie-chief. She says the past few months she has been walking up and down the ramp to see the nasties in WWE and the WWE universe. She adds that she is disgusted by the nasties and it is time for you people to be shown some class from a real lady and I have a right, a Woman's right.

    Ad break

    Becky Lynch makes her way out to the ring after the ad break as she holds both of the belts as we get becky2belts chant going from the crowd. She looks to speak but before she can even say a word Charlotte Flair makes her way out to the ring. Charlotte looks furious as she joins Becky in the ring and cuts right to the point demanding a match for her Smackdown Women's title! Charlotte brings up the point that Becky pinned Ronda not her however Becky fires back saying she has beaten Charlotte so many times she has lost count.


    Naomi's music hits at this point before the two women can carry on arguing with each other saying it is time for something new. She tells the pair you have been fighting non-stop for months on end and no one else has gotten a look in but her friend Asuka. She tells the pair it is time for someone new to get a shot. Becky agrees with Naomi and says she is more than happy to feel the glow.

    Charlotte though tells the Man to go sit on commentary whilst the queen puts Naomi in her place. Becky shakes her head as the two women go face to face as Shane McMahon's music hits. He sells the pain he is in limping on the ramp holding his gut saying he agrees with Charlotte saying she is the face of this division annoying Becky before making a match between Naomi and Charlotte for after the commercial break.

    Match 2: Naomi vs Charlotte Flair

    When we come back the match is underway as Naomi and Charlotte are battling in the ring whilst Becky Lynch has taken a seat on the commentary desk. As the match goes on Becky mentions that Shane once again proves that Charlotte Flair has the backing of management and anything Charlotte Flair wants, she gets. She says it is the only reason she won the Smackdown Women's title from Asuka in the first place.

    Corey asks who she wants to face and Becky says if she had to pick anyone on Smackdown Live: Asuka. She brings up her loss at the rumble and wants to avenge that loss. She says as the champ champ she wants to face the best and beat all challengers, not just beat Charlotte, again and again, reliving 2018. In the ring Naomi puts up a good fight but, in the end, Charlotte puts her away with natural selection!

    Winner via pinfall: Charlotte Flair (8:51)

    Charlotte after the match gets her arm raised by the referee as Becky Lynch shakes her head on commentary putting down the headset. Charlotte meanwhile does the belt motion once again letting Becky Lynch know she wants a title shot still.

    Ad break

    Daniel Bryan and Rowan are shown backstage as Bryan talks about the loss at Wrestlemania. He says that Kofi's win was a fluke and says he proved he is the prime example of corporate greed bringing back the WWE title. He says he will take back his WWE title and is still the planet champion! He says he will let Kofi have his moment tonight but after tonight he will make sure he reminds Kofi he is a B+ player.


    We see the Iiconics backstage as they mock all 6 of the opponents, they beat at Wrestlemania saying they are going to make these titles Iconic! At this point Nikki Cross walks into shot and tells the pair she wants to play. Both, however, dismiss this telling her to get a friend and maybe they will play. They walk off laughing as Nikki lets out a smirk and looks to find someone to play with her.

    Ad break

    The Usos make their way out after a commercial break, interacting with the crowd to the delight of the fans. They stand in the ring and cut their usual promo. They say that they have Smackdown Live on lock and are throwing out an opening challenge to any team backstage right now who we did not beat at Wrestlemania! They toss the microphones down as they wait in the ring. Suddenly they hear this music:



    The NXT tag team champions the War Raiders start to march to the ring to a loud pop from the crowd who are hyped up to see what is going to be a champion vs champion match tonight! All 4 men get in the ring looking focused as they stare down the Usos as the ref rings the bell getting this started.

    Match 3: Smackdown tag team titles match: The Usos © vs War Raiders

    Both teams put on a great showing as The War Raiders use their power and surprising agility to take control. Noticeably during the match, Rowe seems to be struggling with his back. However in the closing stages, as it looks like The Usos might win, the lights go out as we see Bray Wyatt stood on the ramp laughing to himself as he sits in a crossed-legged position at the top of the ramp distracting The Usos for a moment but that is all the War Raiders need. The Usos go for a superkick each but The War Raiders duck and plant them with a chokeslam each. Hanson makes sure to get Jey out of the ring before makes his way to the top rope. Rowe struggles to lift Jimmy but does so as they hit the Fallout and picking up the win becoming Smackdown tag team champions.

    Winners via pinfall and New Smackdown tag team champions: The War Raiders (12:59)

    After the match, Bray starts to laugh as he makes his way down to the ring as The War Raiders each hold up their NXT and Smackdown tag team titles in the air for the crowd to see. Bray, however, shouts some instructions to the pair as they beat down on The Usos some more before dropping them both with chokeslams to the mat! Bray lets out a laugh as the pair take a seat on the mat as Bray tells the crowd to follow the buzzards!

    Ad break

    When we return, we get a short Samoa Joe promo as he gloats about what he did to Rey Mysterio at Wrestlemania and if he or his son tries to come for my title he will put them to sleep. Meanwhile elsewhere we see Shane making his way back to his office shouting at some poor stage-hand as we see Kevin Owens chuckling to himself. Shane asks Kevin what is so funny? Kevin Owens tells Shane McMahon he knew this was coming all along. He brings up their feud from the past and that Sami Zayn knew how big Shane's ego was as well. Shane looks angry before telling Kevin Owens there will be consequences for his action. Owens however fakes being scared and walks off as we cut to the ring.

    Cesaro makes his way out first without his partner Sheamus who commentary mention is currently sidelined with a back injury and wishes the Irish superstar the best in his recovery. Cesaro gets a decent pop from the smarky crowd even though he is still a heel. Mustafa Ali gets an even louder pop from the crowd as commentary mention he missed out on a WWE title shot recently due to injury and will be looking to prove he should get one with a win tonight.

    Match 4: Mustafa Ali vs Cesaro

    Both men put on a great showing but Mustafa Ali shows his heart and also his unique offense in this match finding ways to overcome the strength and technical ability of Cesaro. In the end, Mustafa Ali makes his way to the top rope and connects with the 054 for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Mustafa Ali (11:48)


    Ad break

    We come back for the main event of the evening which is the New Day celebrating Kofi Kingston's win at Wrestlemania.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    205 Live:
    April 10th 2019

    205 Live starts with Drake Maverick showing a bit disheveled with his tie being a mess and his beard looks like a mess. He says if this is going to be the last 205 Live ever, we are ending with a bang. In the main event, Tony Nese will face the man who had been a dominant champion until his loss at Wrestlemania: Buddy Murphy. Drake adds that match will also be a No DQ match! The video package comes to an end as we cut to the ring with Drew Gulak making his way to the commentary desk and taking a seat. Humberto Carrillo comes out first getting a small pop from the crowd whilst Jack Gallagher comes out getting boos from the crowd.

    Match 1: Humberto Carrillo vs Jack Gallagher

    Drew Gulak is on commentary and talks about trying to save 205 live. He says he wanted to make it better but no one listened to him. He says now maybe he can save one person's young career instead. He says he has been telling Humberto not to go to the top rope and use his ground game instead. Carrillo tries to stick to that but after the 8-minute mark, he is struggling but gets an opening as he heads to the top rope. Drew, however, snaps slamming his headset down breaking it and pushes Humberto off the top rope to the mat causing the DQ.

    Winner via DQ: Humberto Carrillo (8:42)

    Drew Gulak makes his way into the ring and starts berating Humberto Carrillo for going to the top rope. Both men argue as Drew punches Humberto confirming their relationship is coming to an end for sure now! He starts laying into Humberto until Gallagher stops Drew hitting him with the umbrella to the back. He goes for another shot but Drew slides out of the ring and retreats up the ramp. Jack Gallagher turns to Humberto Carrillo who is rising to his feet. Gallagher says nothing but gives him a nod as we cut backstage. We cut to the backstage area as we see Akira Tozawa and Brian Kendrick talking about becoming friends in recent times. They both mention the superstar shakeup and the end of 205 Live as they say they hope to stay together as a team.

    We then cut to Drake Maverick's office backstage as he is packing things up when he is confronted by Mike and Maria Kanellis. Mike and Maria rip into him blaming him for 205 Live being canceled. Drake argues back but Mike responds to this and picks up Drake, pinning him against the wall. He threatens to destroy him worse than Corbin did on Monday night. However, before he can do much more damage EC3 walks in. He tells Mike he has a lot of wealth and he will make him a deal. He will get the authority to put him and his wife on Monday Night Raw in the superstar shakeup but in return, he fights Mike Kanellis next Monday. Maria agrees as Mike puts Drake down and walks off. Drake thanks EC3 but EC3 says that is what friends do letting out a cunning smirk.

    Match 2: Cedric Alexander vs Ariya Davari

    Ariya Davari takes on Cedric Alexander in a showcase match as both men try to put themselves in the shop window for the upcoming superstar shakeup. Cedric though is too much for Davari putting him away with the Lumbar check.

    Winner via pinfall: Cedric Alexander (6:21)

    We then cut to Noam Dar who says look what happens when he is no longer on the show. He shakes his head before saying that he is offering his services to either the Raw or Smackdown brand if they want a true supernova on their roster. He walks off acting cocky, chewing his gum as we cut to the ring for the main event of the show.

    Main event: Cruiserweight title No DQ match: Tony Nese © vs Buddy Murphy


    Tony Nese and Buddy Murphy go all out as they both
    want to be the last champion during the 205 Live era of the Cruiserweight division. Buddy puts Nese through a lot of punishment but in the end, Tony Nese has a chair placed in the corner of the ring which he sends Murphy into headfirst. He follows up with the running kneese onto the chair and rolls him out of the corner pinning the juggernaut retaining his Cruiserweight title.

    Winner via pinfall and still Cruiserweight Champion: Tony Nese (14:57)

    Tony Nese holds the Cruiserweight title in the air to cheers from the crowd as the last edition of 205 Live comes to an end.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    News Updates:
    Rowe out for 1 month:


    One half of the War Raiders picked up an injury to his back on Smackdown Live and will be out of action for 1 month.How this will affect the war raiders after being called up on the most recent Smackdown Live and on NXT where they are still the NXT tag team champions remains to be seen?

    Mod note: EWR...... thanks.... so much.

    Plans for the Cruiserweight title:

    Current plans indicate that the Cruiserweight title and it's champion Tony Nese will be on Monday Night Raw with 205 Live being canceled due to its poor performance on the network. WWE feels that adding the Cruiserweight division to Monday night Raw will offer it something different to Smackdown Live.

    A decent match with Jinder using his power to try to stop Ricochet but Ricochet uses his speed to overcomes this and puts away Jinder Mahal with Recoil (codebreaker) becoming the first man to enter the Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Winner via pinfall: Ricochet (5:06)

    After the match, we cut to a hype package for “The best-kept secret in WWE” Buddy Murphy. He talks about his time on 205 Live, becoming the Cruiserweight champion but now he is coming to Smackdown Live.

    When we return from the commercial break, we get a promo by Bray Wyatt as the War Raiders stand behind him. He says he took some time off to re-find himself. He says he had forgotten Abigail’s teachings but has now been reborn. He says he has refound his purpose and leading souls to where they belong is his mission once again. The War Raiders after that line not saying a word hold their NXT and Smackdown Live Tag team titles in the air as Bray lets out a creepy sinister laugh.

    After that, we cut to the ring as Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado are standing in the ring. Commentary mention Kalisto will be staying on Monday Night Raw whilst these two men are now part of the Smackdown Live roster. They wait in the ring when the music for the Revival hits as the top guys make their way to the ring! Corey Graves on commentary hypes them up as former NXT and Raw tag team champions as they join Lucha house party in the ring.


    Match 3: The Revival vs Lucha House Party

    Lucha House party put on a good showing but in the end, The Revival put away Lucha House party hitting Lince Dorado with the Shatter Machine.

    Winner via pinfall: The Revival (8:13)

    Post-match The Revival looks to beat up Lucha House party and send a message to the whole tag team division. However, before they can do too much damage, Heavy machinery makes the save! The Revival gets out of the ring as they jaw jack Heavy Machinery as they retreat up the ramp. Heavy Machinery meanwhile poses for the fans to cheers from the crowd as they help Lucha house party up.

    Ad break

    After a commercial Becky Lynch makes her way out to the ring as she states next week she finds out her opponent for the Raw Women's title at Money in the Bank but she wants to know who will fight her for the Smackdown Women's title. She is then interrupted by Charlotte, Alexa Bliss, Ember Moon, Riott Squad, Carmella and Asuka in order who all make a claim to being next in line for a title shot.

    Charlotte mentions not being pinned at Mania, Bliss brings up their battles in the past, Ember Moon mentions she has never had a chance to shine, Ruby Riott says that for too long the Riott squad has been focused on chaos but now they are coming for gold. Carmella just says she is money and Asuka brings up the fact she beat Becky at the Royal Rumble.

    Before Becky2belts can respond Shane McMahon comes out and makes a 6 pack challenge next week between Charlotte, Alexa Bliss, Ember Moon, Ruby Riott, Carmella and Asuka. All 6 women stare each other down whilst Becky smiles holding her Smackdown's women title in the air as we cut to a Finn Balor hype package showing the IC champion is coming to Smackdown Live.

    Ad break

    Apollo Crews cuts a promo explaining why he confronted Baron Corbin last week on Raw. Calls Corbin a bully and mentions him beating Kurt Angle. Baron Corbin then appears and mocks Crews challenging him to a match next week. Crews agrees but says Corbin does not have the power to make matches any more or did he forget? Corbin though makes a comment saying he knows Shane will be happy to make that match for him. He walks off leaving Crews really confused. We then cut to the ring after this as Kevin Owens makes his way out getting a good pop from the crowd but he looks serious ahead of what is going to be a 2 on 1 handicap match. Once he is in the ring Daniel Bryan's music hits as he makes his way out with Rowan by his side as the crowd boos the Planet champion.

    Match 4: Bryan and Rowan vs Kevin Owens

    At the start of the match, Owens holds his own and even takes control. However soon the numbers game proves to be too much with Bryan and Rowan making frequent tags. Bryan, in the end, would hit the running knee for the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Daniel Bryan and Rowan (11:38)


    Bryan and Rowan after the match start to beatdown Kevin Owens until Sami Zayn makes his return and saves his best friend. The pair would fight off Daniel Bryan and Rowan forcing them to retreat. Kevin Owens would get to his feet and hug his best friend Sami Zayn getting a loud pop from the crowd.

    Ad break

    We then get an Iiconics promo in which they tell the Divas of Doom they need to prove they can win as a team before they fight them. The Iiconics promise to give the pair an example next week. In the main event of the show, Shane McMahon comes out with Baron Corbin by his side. He talks about the new people he is adding to Smackdown Live who will take the brand to new heights including the man stood next to him. This would then bring out Elias and Drew McIntyre getting boos from the crowd. Shane says when you are the best in the world you surround yourself with the best talent and says that this is the new corporation!

    The Miz then comes out with a steel chair and cuts a promo ripping into the heels in the ring. Shane challenges him to fight all 4 of them right now but Miz smirks saying he is waiting for someone else to come out. At that point, Reigns sneaks into the ring spearing Drew taking him out. Miz uses this distraction to slide into the ring and hits Baron Corbin with the chair before going for Elias. Shane tries to flee but Roman stops him laying into Shane McMahon before dropping him with the spear as well. Miz in the ring meanwhile hits Elias with the Skull crushing finale as The Miz and Roman Reigns stand tall to end the show.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Killian Dian and Alexander Wolfe moved to NXT and NXT UK:

    The superstar shake up is carrying on as Killian Dian and Alexander Wolfe have both left the main roster to return to NXT and NXT UK respectively. This decision was taken after the poor booking of Sanity. The company feel that the pair can be rebuilt away from the main roster on those respective shows. Eric Young meanwhile will be staying on Smackdown Live but it is unknown if there are any significant plans for him in the future with him potentially taking a more of a backstage role in the coming months.

    Harper confirmed to be on Smackdown:

    Whilst Harper did not appear on Smackdown Live this week, it has been announced he will be staying a part of the Smackdown Live roster. Expect a lot of the planned push that was going to be given to Lars Sullivan to be given to him instead in the coming months.

    Five additions to the Smackdown Live roster:

    In the last update related to the Smackdown Live roster, 5 names have been announced as part of the Smackdown roster as the Superstar shake up comes to a close. Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox have been announced as additions to the Women's roster. Meanwhile Fandango, No Way Jose and Gentleman Jack Gallagher have been announced as joining the male roster. Gentleman Jack Gallagher is an interesting edition with end of 205 Live as it is rumored the new creative team may have something planned for Jack Gallagher in the coming months.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    I love that there is no Wild Card rule anymore and I love even more now that PPVs are now either RAW exclusive or Smackdown exclusive and the only times that PPVs are dual branded are for the Big PPVs like MITB, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. It seems you got rid of the Hell in a Cell PPV and I don't know why especially when it is actually a great PPV. You also get rid of TLC as well and replace it with Starrcade which is another thing I don't get but hey to each his own.

    Now the Cruiserweight Championship is a RAW title...that makes sense but with some of the Cruiserweights being on RAW and the others being on Smackdown Live it means the ones on Smackdown Live they are more or less gonna have to compete for the WWE Intercontinental Championship or the new title that is being brought in at Money in the Bank

    It seems that Bray Wyatt has a new Wyatt Family set up now with himself and The War Raiders...that is an interesting pairing if I say so myself

    Then I have to wonder if there will be an NXT TakeOver when it comes to Royal Rumble weekend because that weekend there is always an NXT TakeOver PPV? Or an NXT TakeOver Tampa for WrestleMania 36 weekend?

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Raw:
    April 22nd 2019
    Des Moines, Iowa





    Michael Cole: Hello and welcome to Monday Night Raw in Des Moines, Iowa.

    Corey Graves: And we are kicking the show off with the number one contender's match for the Raw's women title between Naomi and Mickie James.

    Renee Young: That is right Corey but that is not all that is in store tonight.

    Michael Cole: That is correct Renee as we will see several Money in the Bank qualifiers tonight.

    Corey Graves: We see for the Women Money in the Bank ladder match Bayley take on Tamina, whilst The Divas of Doom take on Fire and desire with two spots on the line!

    Renee Young: And for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match we will see Andrade Cien Almas take on Sin Cara and in the main event AJ Styles takes on Braun Strowman!




    Mickie James walks to the ring getting a small number of boos from the crowd as she looks to get her career back on track after a rough couple of years since she has returned to the WWE.

    Michael Cole: But right now, we will find out who the next challenger for the self-proclaimed champ champ, Becky2belts.

    Corey Graves: Well when you are a champion you always have a target on your back but being a double champion means you have two targets on your back and the man is without friends in the WWE!

    Both Mickie James and Naomi are in the ring as they wait for the referee to do the usual announcements before getting this match under way!



    Match 1: Number one contender's match for the Raw Women's title: Naomi vs Mickie James

    Naomi right out of the gate goes for Mickie James looking to take down the veteran and catch her off guard. Mickie does her best to survive the early onslaught but has to roll to the outside after the first few minutes. Naomi chases after her as they run around the ring. Mickie though uses that to take control cutting her off once Mickie is chased back into the ring. Mickie from there slows down the pace and punishes Naomi looking to stop her athleticism.

    The match is 50/50 throughout after the start as Mickie still has a hard time dealing with Naomi. In the closing stages, Naomi climbs to the top rope looking for the spilt legged moonsault. Mickie though gets her knees up blocking the move. Mickie reacts quickly as she grabs Naomi by the ropes and hits the Mickie-DDT. Mickie makes the cover. 1 2 Mickie gets her feet on the ropes 3! Mickie James will be facing Becky Lynch for the Raw Women's title at Money in the bank!


    Winner via pinfall: Mickie James (10:12)

    Mickie James gets to her feet letting out a smug almost crazy like smirk as she is happy to have picked up a win. Naomi meanwhile rolls to the outside after the loss heading up the ramp.

    Michael Cole: A massive win for Mickie James tonight putting her on a collision course with The Man Becky Lynch.

    Corey Graves: Mickie James now has the chance to go level with her long-term rival of the past Trish Stratus and become a 7-time Women's champion in the WWE!

    Renee Young: Well she is a freakin legend of the Women's division and now she is looking to prove she can still compete with them at the top level.

    Whilst Mickie James is still in the ring, the titantron shows Becky Lynch is backstage with Charly Caruso ready for an interview.

    Charly Caruso: Becky what are your thoughts after that match and finding out you are facing Mickie James at Money in the Bank?

    Becky lets out a sly smirk before answering.

    Becky Lynch: Well it is just nice knowing that in at least one of my matches I get a new challenge instead of fighting Charlotte again. But I was hoping for Naomi to win.

    That makes the watching Mickie James smile in the ring as she shouts to the fans “The man is afraid of a freakin legend.”

    Becky Lynch: I mean I wanted a challenge, not a washed-up has-been.

    Pop for the insult as Mickie James's smile disappears and now there is a look of pure fury.

    Becky Lynch: See she calls herself a freakin legend but what has she done since coming back to WWE? If she wants to stand a chance against becky2belts she is going have to remember how to be the Mickie James from Wrestlemania 22 and not just Alexa Bliss's bitch!

    Becky Lynch walks off having made it very clear she does not see Mickie James as a threat as Mickie James stands in the ring fuming.

    Corey Graves: That is no way to talk about a legend of the women's division!

    Michael Cole: Well Becky is making it clear what she does not view Mickie James as a threat tonight.

    Renee Young: And Mickie James is not happy about those comments.

    Mickie shakes her head muttering something to herself as she walks towards the back still very triggered by what Becky Lynch had to say.


    Ad break

    When we return from the ad break, we see Mike Rome stood ready for an interview backstage.

    Mike Rome: Would you welcome my guest at this time, Bayley?

    Bayley comes into the shot with a smile on her face.

    Mike Rome: How are you feeling tonight ahead of your money in the bank qualifier?

    Bayley: I am feeling excited Mike. It is a big opportunity for me to get back in the Women's title picture.

    Mike Rome: Two weeks ago, you came up short against the Man Becky Lynch. Does that give you extra motivation to win the briefcase?

    Bayley: It does because when I win that Money in the Bank briefcase, I can challenge her to a rematch at any time. Except this time, I will win.

    Mike Rome: Lastly how is Sasha Banks?

    Bayley does not say anything unsure what to say when we see Fire and Desire walk into the picture.

    Mandy Rose: Yes, where is Sasha Banks?

    Sonya Deville: Is she still crying at home?

    Mandy Rose: Does she need a hug?

    Both members of Fire and Desire laugh at their bad joke as Bayley rolls her eyes not impressed.

    Bayley: What is your problem? Don't you have your own match to worry about?

    Sonya Deville: We don't have anything to worry about because tonight we will win our match against the Divas of Doom and when we do maybe we both go after those Women tag team titles you lost?

    Both women walk off leaving Bayley annoyed after being insulted by the pair for the second week in a row. We then cut to a gym with very little lights as we see Oney Lorcan hitting the punching bags with an insane amount of aggression as he seems to be working through some anger.

    Oney Lorcan: Last week was a failure. I came here to beat everyone.

    He walks away from the bag as he walks towards the camera with a menacing look on his face.

    Oney Lorcan: And trust me I will run through the entire roster 1 by 1 until I stand tall over all the broken bodies. Starting with the Cruiserweight division.

    Oney turns back towards the punching bag and starts hammering it once again as we cut back to the ring.




    Chad Gable makes his way out to the ring to a decent pop from the crowd. He has a towel around his neck and is in a sports tracksuit as he slides into the ring under the ropes.

    Michael Cole: Well two weeks ago after a tag team match, his former tag team partner Bobby Roode attacked him from behind bring their run as a tag team to an end.

    Corey Graves: Roode clearly felt he had been carrying Chad Gable for too long and he needed to remove the dead weight!



    Bobby Roode makes his way out next getting a few boos from the crowd as he makes his way out soaking in his theme song as we hear some fans singing along.

    Renee Young: Well the crowd may not like actions of Roode but they still like to sing along.

    Bobby Roode however on the ramp stops soaking in his theme song as he pulls a microphone out of his robe.

    Bobby Roode: No this is not sing along with Bobby Roode. Stop singing right now!

    His music is still playing as the fans in an act of defiance start singing along even louder which annoys Bobby Roode even more.

    Bobby Roode: Cut my music, cut my damn music!

    His music gets cut off getting loud boos from the fans which brings a smile to the face of Bobby Roode.

    Bobby Roode: Now I should not even be having this match. I was ready to move on from you but our commissioner insists on me facing this kid. Gable rode on my coattails for too long but now it is time to remove you from them for good!

    Bobby Roode drops the microphone jumping in the ring as he waits for the ref to ring the bell getting this match underway.



    Match 2: Chad Gable vs Bobby Roode

    Once the bell rings Gable charges at Bobby Roode taking him down to the mat and he starts laying into him with a few punches. Gable keeps up the pressure early on forcing Bobby Roode to roll out of the ring. Roode at this point early on looks to wave off the match and starts walking back up the ramp. Gable is not having that though as he chases after Roode dropping him on the ramp before sending him back into the ring!

    Gable slides back in joining Roode but the glorious one cheapshots Gable once he is back in the ring. From there Bobby Roode takes control of the match laying into Gable with a lot of aggression and uses his superior size to hurt the Cruiserweight. Gable has a few hopes spots and puts up a good fight but, in the end, Bobby Roode picks up the win with the glorious DDT.


    Winner via pinfall: Bobby Roode (8:33)

    Michael Cole: Bobby Roode picks up the win tonight!

    Corey Graves: The glorious one is on his own and will now be able to prove his greatness guys. He has been held back for months by Chad Gable!

    Renee Young: Well you have to give credit to Gable; in the early stages, he showed a lot of promise.

    Corey Graves: Promise does not get the job done Renee as proved tonight.

    Bobby Roode celebrates in the ring gloating to the crowd as on the outside Gable sells the damage done from the match looking upset at having come up short tonight.


    Ad break

    We come back from the commercial break as we see The Good Brothers walking through the back when they bump into their old friend and leader AJ Styles! All 3 men look happy to see each other as they all too sweet each other before speaking.

    Karl Anderson: It is our boy. Listen, man, we are sorry for what happened last week.

    Luke Gallows: We were trying to stop that annoying nerd Lio Rush from getting involved any more then he was but Bobby Lashley was still able to steal the win.

    AJ Styles: It is fine guys you didn't cost me the match...

    ???: No but you cost me the match!

    Braun Strowman walks into the shot towering over all 3 men looking very angry. Both of the Good Brothers step forward ready for a fight.

    Braun Strowman: You two stuck your nose in and distracted me!

    Luke Gallows: You distracted yourself, Braun.

    Karl Anderson: Yeah, we were just trying to stop Lio Rush from getting involved. You attacked us for no reason!

    Braun Strowman: I attacked you because you interfered in my match! You come out to the ring tonight when I face him and you will get these hands!

    Braun Strowman storms off barging past both of the good brothers as AJ Styles looks on. The Good brothers look like they are going to attack Braun from behind when AJ Styles stops the pair!

    AJ Styles: Guys, guys calm down!

    Both men take a breath, listening to AJ Styles as they shake their heads annoyed at Braun's comments.

    Karl Anderson: That is fine because we will be out there tonight to watch you kick his ass.

    AJ Styles: Sounds good but make sure you don't get involved.

    Luke Gallows: That is fine as will instead have a front-row seat as you earn yourself a spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match.

    All 3 men smile as they too sweet each other. The camera then cuts to a dark room with Aleister Black sat with his head down before lifting it up to face the camera.

    Aleister Black: When I first came to Raw and Smackdown I had an ally by my side. Now I am alone on Monday Night Raw but we all come into this world alone. I came to Monday Night Raw to fight the best and becoming Mr Money in the Bank gives me that chance! Cesaro, you stand in the way of me winning the Money in the Bank briefcase. It is not personal, there is no malice but next week you will fade, fade to black.




    We come back to the ring as Tamina makes her way out to a fairly muted reaction as she is without her tag team partner in recent times the “Facebreaker” Nia Jax.

    Michael Cole: Well as we heard just now Aleister Black will be taking on Cesaro in a Money in the Bank qualifying match next week.

    Renee Young: But right now, we see Tamina taking on Bayley with a spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match on the line!

    Corey Graves: Both of these women are on their own at the moment due to their tag team partners taking time off though only one has an excuse and the other has ditched her friend.

    Michael Cole: We don't know the reason Sasha Banks is not here Corey.

    Corey Graves: But we do know she is a terrible friend.



    Bayley makes her way out getting a nice pop from the crowd as she plays with the kids on the front row before sliding into the ring staring down Tamina.

    Renee Young: Well Bayley clearly does not think so Corey.

    Corey Graves: Bayley is too naïve to see Sasha Banks for who she really is. One day she will realize what an awful friend Sasha is and ditch her for good.



    Match 3: Money in the bank qualifier: Bayley vs Tamina

    Tamina does her best to defeat Bayley using her power but Bayley overcomes Tamina in fairly quick fashion finishing her off with a Bayley to Belly making her the first person in the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Winner via pinfall: Bayley (5:58)

    Bayley gets to her feet after the match celebrating the win in the ring to cheers from the crowd. Meanwhile, Tamina slides out of the ring retreating to the back.

    Michael Cole: A big win for Bayley tonight and she will now be one of the 8 women in the Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Renee Young: It has been a tough few weeks for Bayley but she has bounced back with an important win tonight against Tamina.


    Ad break




    Seth Rollins the Universal champion makes his way out to the ring to a massive pop from the crowd. He has the Universal title on his shoulder before he lifts it into the air showing it off to the crowd.

    Michael Cole: Last week Seth Rollins found out who his first Universal title defense would be against when Bobby Lashley won the number one contender's fatal 5 way in the main event of the show, stealing the pin from AJ Styles.

    Corey Graves: It is a fatal 5-way, Michael, Bobby Lashley did what he needed to do to win!

    Renee Young: Bobby Lashley is an insanely strong competitor with MMA experience just like Brock so Seth must be having flashbacks to the road to Wrestlemania!

    Michael Cole: But unlike Brock Lesnar, the hype man in Lashley's corner can wrestle and is more than willing to get involved.

    Corey Graves: The man of the hour has helped Bobby Lashley start living up to his potential, helping him become a two-time Intercontinental champion.

    Renee Young: Well he did cost him the title one time...

    Corey Graves: And Lio made up for his mistakes making this alliance stronger than ever!

    Seth Rollins once in the ring puts the title on his shoulder as he looks to speak to the crowd.

    Seth Rollins: Welcome to Monday Night Rollins!

    Seth chuckles to himself.

    Seth Rollins: Last week I found who would be the first person I defend this title against and trust me when I say this. I plan to defend this title against all challengers. I do not plan to be like Brock Lesnar sitting at home on a farm refusing to put my title on the line.

    Cheers from the crowd.

    Seth Rollins: I plan to be here week in week out taking on all comers and two weeks ago I sent a message to Heyman to give his Beast. Brock if you want to try to take this title back? I am ready and waiting.

    Seth Rollins gives the camera a hard defiant stare before looking to carry on.

    Seth Rollins: However right now I have my first challenger to focus on Bobby Lashley. But it won't just be you out there will it? No, you will have your little brother Lio Rush at ringside, won't you? I wish I had a little brother I could bring to ringside.

    Crowd laugh to the poor joke as Seth Rollins is about to carry on when this music hits.



    Bobby Lashley makes his way out to the ring with Lio Rush by his side holding a microphone. Lashley has a serious look on his face as they make their way inside the ring joining Seth Rollins.

    Lio Rush: You think you are funny? Mocking the man of the hour as you get ready to face a man who makes Brock Lesnar look small. A man who has dominated everywhere he went! A man who will soon be the new Universal champion!

    That line gets boos from the crowd as Lio Rush looks to carry on.

    Lio Rush: You make jokes about my height but what you should be focused on is how my man is going to destroy you. My man is your walking armageddon!

    Seth Rollins: Funny because last time I came face to face with Bobby Lashley I threw him out of the ring in 13 seconds on my way to winning the Royal Rumble.

    Both Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley look annoyed at being reminded of what happened at the Royal Rumble.

    Lio Rush: Did you forget what he did to you? Did you forget him putting you through an announce table?

    Seth Rollins: Oh, Lio I remember what he did to me. But I still overcame the damage and won the Royal Rumble.

    Lio Rush: Maybe he did not hit you hard enough.

    Bobby Lashley drops Seth Rollins with a massive clothesline! Lio drops the microphone as he starts laying into Seth with a few punches but Seth is able to fight back taking care of Lio with relative ease. However, as he stands up Bobby spears the hell out of him! Lio shouts something to Bobby who lifts Rollins onto his shoulders. Lio Rush climbs to the top rope steadying himself whilst Bobby Lashley plants Rollins with the Dominator! Rush then flies off the top rope and hits the Man of the Hour! Lio Rush then pass the Universal title passing it to his friend Bobby Lashley who holds it in the air whilst placing his foot on the chest of Seth Rollins.

    Michael Cole: Would you look at what Lashley just did to Seth Rollins?

    Corey Graves: That is what Seth Rollins is going to have to contend with at Money in the bank. He isn't just fighting Bobby Lashley, he is dealing with Lio Rush at ringside as well and he may have overcome the beast Brock Lesnar but can he overcome walking armageddon?


    Ad break



    Sin Cara makes his way out to the ring getting a muted response for the crowd as the rarely seen luchador makes his way to the ring.


    Michael Cole: Up next we will see Sin Cara and Andrade Cien Almas go head to head for a spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Corey Graves: And this match is one that has been in the making for months. Sin Cara picked up an injury taking him off TV for many months due to an attack by Andrade Cien Almas on Smackdown backstage. Tonight, Sin Cara looks to get revenge.

    Renee Young: A big opportunity for Sin Cara to make an impact guys.




    Andrade makes his way out next joined by his manager Zelina Vega as he looks ready for business.

    Michael Cole: Both Zelina Vega and Andrade know how big of an opportunity this is for Andrade tonight. The majority of people who have won that briefcase have gone on to become world champions.

    Corey Graves: And with a mastermind like Zelina in his corner he will know the correct time to cash in that briefcase.

    Andrade once inside the ring gives a viscous sneer looking at his former friend from Mexico. The ref rings the bell getting this match underway.


    Match 4: Money in the bank qualifier: Andrade Cien Almas w/Zelina Vega vs Sin Cara

    Once the match gets underway it is a fast-paced affair as Sin Cara is able to put on a better showing then you would have expected before the match. Andrade at one point even has to roll out of the ring to regroup and talk to his manager Zelina Vega at ringside. She whispers some instructions to her client who gets back in the ring and from there Andrade does take control. Sin Cara tries to survive but, in the end, Andrade puts him away with the double knees in the corner combination followed by the Hammerlock DDT!

    Winner via pinfall: Andrade Cien Almas (9:39)

    Michael Cole: Andrade Cien Almas earns his spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match!

    Corey Graves: He had to work for it but with some advice from Zelina Vega he was able to pick up the win and overcome his former friend Sin Cara.

    Renee Young: Andrade has had a hot start to the year making it to the final 4 in the royal rumble and now will be looking to break through!

    Andrade pounds his chest as Zelina Vega slides into the ring to raise the arm of her client! Andrade, however, brings his hand down as he looks at Sin Cara and starts laying into him with several brutal knees and punches pounding away on the luchador to boos from the crowd.

    Michael Cole: Come on Andrade this is not necessary!

    Corey Graves: This about sending a message, Michael.

    Andrade picks up Sin Cara as he lifts him into the air before bringing him down with a hammerlock DDT driving Sin Cara's head into the mat again! Andrade rises up off the mat as Zelina shouts for him to do more when...



    Kalisto sprints down to the ring as he chases off Andrade Cien Almas and Zelina Vega who choose to leave the ring as Kalisto checks on his former tag team partner and friend Sin Cara who is still selling the damage he sustained from Andrade Cien Almas's assault just now.

    Renee Young: Well thank god for Sin Cara's former tag team partner Kalisto!

    Michael Cole: And look at Andrade leaving like the coward he is!

    Corey Graves: Coward Michael? He is smart. He just had a tough match why would he fight someone else when he needs to rest for the Money in the Bank ladder match!

    We cut to a bar as we can see Cesaro is in a James Bond-like suit and sunglasses as he can be seen drinking what looks to be whiskey as the camera focuses in on him.

    Cesaro: Over the last few years me and Sheamus we weren't just the bar, we set the bar but all good things must come to an end.

    Cesaro takes another sip from his drink.

    Cesaro: I am on my own on Monday Night Raw and it is time for me to carry on setting the bar. Next week Aleister Black you are right it won't be personal. When I beat you, it will be all business and I will be on my way to becoming Mr Money in the bank.

    Cesaro finishes off his drink as the camera cuts to Paige backstage in her office. She can be seen watching fighting with my family on the TV when the Cruiserweight champion Tony Nese walks into the room.

    Paige: Hello Tony, what can I do for my Cruiserweight champion?

    Tony Nese: I was looking to find out who I am going to be facing at Money in the Bank. I want to take this division to new heights now I am on Monday night Raw.

    Paige: Good that is the fire I want to see from my champions. Next week I will have a special announcement for a match that will help put the Cruiserweight division back on the map and get everyone to pay attention.

    Tony Nese: Good because I want you to line up as many challengers as possible for me to beat because I intend to be a fighting champion.

    Tony Nese leaves the room as Paige lets out a smile as she goes back to watching fighting with my family.

    The crowd let out a confused reaction before letting a small number of boos mostly out of apathy at the fact Jinder Mahal's former goons are making their way out to the ring.

    Michael Cole: Well the Singh Brothers are now going to have to cope on their own after their leader Jinder Mahal got traded to Smackdown Live!

    Corey Graves: The Maharajah will have taught everything he knows to them and who knows maybe one of the Singh Brothers will become the Universal champion!

    Renee Young: I think there is more chance of me becoming Raw Women's champion Corey.

    Both of the Singh Brothers have microphones in their hands as they stand in the ring ready to speak.

    Sunil Singh: Now guys hold your applause!

    The crowd holds their non-existent applause.

    Samir Singh: I know it is tough when in the presence of two stars from Bollywood.

    Sunil Singh: But we have something important to say.

    Samir Singh: Last week we lost our leader.

    Sunil Singh: Our mentor.

    Samir Singh: The Maharajah went to Smackdown Live and left us by ourselves.

    The Singh Brothers hug each other in the center of the ring and act like they are crying as the crowd could not even give the slightest of shits. Both men then wipe away their crocodile tears before looking at the crowd once again.

    Sunil Singh: However, we learned great things from the greatest WWE champion of all time!

    Boos from the crowd not fans of Jinder Mahal.

    Samir Singh: Hey idiots show some respect to Jinder Mahal.

    Sunil Singh: Samir these people are stupid Americans, they don't understand culture.

    Samir Singh: You are right broth...


    WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT



    Zack Ryder and Hawkins make their way out getting a decent pop from the fans with a new theme song for their tag team as they make their way out with their Raw tag team titles around their waist loving every minute of their current success. The Singh brothers, however, do not look happy to have been interrupted.


    Sunil Singh: Who do you think you are interrupting us?

    Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins look at each other on the ramp before looking down at each other's tag team titles.

    Zack Ryder: Well we think we are the Raw tag team champions!

    Pop from the crowd.

    Curt Hawkins: That feels good to say but that is not what came out here to talk about.

    Zack Ryder: Yeah, we were listening to you talk backstage and quite frankly you two talking makes us want to fist pump your face off!

    Curt Hawkins: And we have been on a little bit of a streak. We want to carry on that run maybe even getting to 269 wins in a row.

    Sunil Singh: Well I would leave us alone then.

    Zack Ryder: Is that so? How about we have a match right now.

    Samir Singh: We will fight you right now but only if yo...

    Curt Hawkins: Oh, trust me you don't need to ask us to put the titles on the line. Whilst we hold these titles, we are going to be fighting champions and we will make teams like you face the facts!

    Ryder and Hawkins drop their microphones making their way towards the ring.

    Corey Graves: Guys I am getting word from our general manager Paige who is sending a referee out here right now and this match is official! Not only that but per Ryder and Hawkins request the tag team titles will be on the line!

    Right on cue, the referee sprints out to the ring joining the teams inside the ring. Samir Singh starts for the Singh brothers whilst Curt Hawkins starts for Ryder and Hawkins.


    Match 5: Raw tag team titles match: Ryder and Hawkins (c) vs The Singh Brothers

    The Singh brothers put on a better showing then you would expect, maybe actually picking up some things from their former boss Jinder Mahal but in the end, the pair lose out as Hawkins takes care of Samir Singh whilst Zack Ryder finishes off Sunil Singh with the Rough Ryder!

    Winners via pinfall and still Raw tag team champions: Ryder and Hawkins (5:55)

    Michael Cole: And that is 4 wins in a row for Ryder and Hawkins!

    Corey Graves: Hawkins and Ryder might be starting to prove that Wrestlemania wasn't a fluke.

    Ryder and Hawkins celebrate in the ring getting a nice pop from the fans as we cut backstage to see Charly Caruso walking backstage as she approaches the Usos.

    Charly Caruso: Jey, Jimmy what did you think of the match you have just seen?

    Jimmy Uso: Them boys have been showing some fire. Getting some wins going.

    Jey Uso: We used to have the Smackdown tag team division on lock

    Jimmy Uso: Now we will be looking to make the Raw tag team division the new Uso penitentiary!

    Jey Uso: Yeah, we want the next shot at the Raw tag team titles.

    Jey Uso takes a moment, pausing as he sees someone behind Charly Caruso walking into the shot.

    Jey Uso: Can we help you?

    We see who Jey is talking too as Lana walks into the shot followed by Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura.

    Lana: You think you two deserve the next shot? My husband and Nakamura have been held down for too long and should be next in line.

    Jimmy Uso: It seems someone has forgotten what happened at Wrestlemania.

    Lana: Wrestlemania was a fluke. If it was 2 vs 2 we would have become Smackdown Tag team champions!

    Jey Uso: Well how about we settle this next week and we show you why we had the Smackdown Live tag team division on lockdown!

    Lana: You are on.

    Lana walks away as Rusev and Nakamura get face to face with the Usos who refuse to back down. However, neither teams come to blows as Rusev and Nakamura leave under the orders of Lana.

    Rey Mysterio makes his way out to a pop from the crowd as he runs out and makes his way to the ring. As usual, on the way down to the ring, he makes sure to interact with the children at ringside.

    Michael Cole: Well right now it looks like we are going to hear from Rey Mysterio.

    Renee Young: That is correct Michael. He joined the Monday Night Raw roster in the superstar shakeup last week and you have to wonder what is next for Rey Mysterio.

    Corey Graves: Well if he is smart, he will leave Samoa Joe alone after what he did to him at Wrestlemania and move on elsewhere.

    Rey gets in the ring enjoying the reaction from the crowd before looking to speak.

    Rey Mysterio: Not going to lie it has been a fair few years since I have been on Monday Night Raw and it feels good to be back.

    Cheap pop.

    Rey Mysterio: However, things have not been going well recently. At Wrestlemania, I walked into the match with Samoa Joe with an injury and Joe beat me in a matter of minutes.

    Rey pauses for a moment.

    Rey Mysterio: I ain't making any excuses. I came up short. And that has been happening a lot in recent times. So, I have been doing some thinking.

    The crowd sound worried with a few fans chanting please don't go at Rey Mysterio. Rey, however, smiles chuckling to himself before looking to carry on.

    Rey Mysterio: Don't worry guys I don't plan on retiring just yet. Throughout my career, I was able to become a 5-time WCW Cruiserweight champion and a 3 WWE Cruiserweight champion. And I want to become the Cruiserweight champion once again.

    Pop from the crowd excited at the prospect of Rey becoming a Cruiserweight champion.

    Rey Mysterio: Now I don't expect to be handed a title shot just because of my name. I know I am going to have to earn a title shot and trust me I intend to.

    Pop from the crowd but we then hear this music:



    Noam Dar's music hits getting a small reaction but it leans towards boos as the cocky young Scot stands on the ramp chewing some gum before he looks to speak.

    Noam Dar: Would you listen to this old dafty?

    More boos from the crowd as Rey Mysterio listens in the ring clearly unimpressed.

    Noam Dar: You want to cut in and take my spot.

    Rey Mysterio: That is not what I said...

    Noam Dar: And now you are calling me a liar! Listen here, old man. You think you can enter the Cruiserweight division because you used to be a champion. How about I show you why that is a mistake right now ya dafty?

    Rey Mysterio: You know what. Maybe it is time to teach you some respect.

    Noam Dar: I don't need to learn respect.

    *BANG* Cheap shot with the microphone by Noam Dar which drops Rey Mysterio to the mat as Noam Dar lets out a smirk as we see a referee running out as we cut to a commercial break.

    Match 6: Rey Mysterio vs Noam Dar

    When we return from the ad break Noam Dar is still in control of the match thanks to the cheap shot with the microphone. Noam Dar spends a good portion of the match going after the legs of Mysterio and looking to take out his surgical repaired knees. Rey finds a way out each time but that does not stop Dar going after the legs almost like a shark who can smell blood. Rey though throughout the years has had to find ways to overcome people going after his legs to slow him down and fights through the pain. In the end, Rey dodges a Nova Roller attempt by Dar before he hits him with a CANDIAN DESTROYER! Rey makes the cover and picks up the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Rey Mysterio (14:14)

    Michael Cole: Rey Mysterio picks up the win tonight!

    Corey Graves: But he had to fight for it, Michael. Noam Dar showing how good the Cruiserweight division is as he went toe to toe with a future hall of famer and a multi-time World champion for nearly 15 minutes tonight.

    Renee Young: And Rey even at his age is still adding to his arsenal pulling off that impressive maneuver tonight to put away Noam Dar.

    Rey carries on celebrating in the ring to the delight of the fans whilst Noam Dar on the outside looks annoyed at coming up short tonight.

    When we return, we see a room with many mirrors in it with Tyler Breeze looking into all of them as he looks almost disappointed.

    Tyler Breeze: When I came to Raw and Smackdown a few years ago I had so much promise. So much potential.

    Clips spliced in of his run in NXT.

    Tyler Breeze: I came in with a lot of hype from NXT but for different reasons, things did not work out.

    Shows the struggles he had on his own when first coming to the main roster.

    Tyler Breeze: I have had some fun times and even made a friend.

    Shows him and Fandango becoming a tag team. Clips of them as the fashion police having fun together.

    Tyler Breeze: But then he got injured and I was by myself again floundering.

    Shows footage of him losing numerous matches and getting destroyed on Raw last year by Kevin Owens.

    Tyler Breeze: See this is the point where most people would blame someone else for their failures but I don't blame Fandango for my lack of success. No, I blame myself.

    Breeze for the first time during the promo looks up towards the camera and the mirrors.

    Tyler Breeze: I forgot who I was. I forgot why they called me prince pretty, I forgot how to get the job done. I spent too long being a failure but now? It is time to become prince pretty once again and get back to the top like my followers wanted.

    Breeze looks super focused as he turns around and kicks a mirror causing them all to shatter.

    Tyler Breeze: Prince pretty is back!

    The promo comes to an end as we cut back to the ring.

    Michael Cole: Looks like Tyler Breeze is looking to get his career back on track guys.

    Corey Graves: I remember being in NXT and seeing Prince Pretty. He was someone people looked at having a great future but things have not panned out so far.



    Both members of the Divas of Doom walk to the ring ahead of their Money in the Bank qualifier.

    Michael Cole: Well the rules of this tag match are simple. The winning team will have both members in the Money in the Bank ladder match in 4 weeks.

    Corey Graves: And the advantage of having your tag team partner in the match cannot be underestimated. You can take care of the field before fighting it out amongst the yourselves to see who wins that briefcase.

    Renee Young: Well Natalya and Beth Phoenix both know what it is like to be Women's champion having done it numerous times and they are both hungry for more gold.



    Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville make their way out next getting some boos from the crowd as they look to join the Divas of Doom in the ring.

    Michael Cole: Well this team has had a decent run on Smackdown Live and like the Divas of Doom you have to imagine they will want a shot at the Women's tag team titles.

    Corey Graves: And they should get a shot. They were the runners up in the Elimination Chamber to crown our first ever champions plus Mandy is god's greatest creation.

    Renee just sighs on commentary and shakes her head as we see Sonya Deville step into the ring for Fire and Desire whilst Natalya starts for the Divas of Doom.


    Match 7: Money in the bank qualifier: Divas of Dooms vs Fire and Desire

    Both teams put on a decent showing with the Divas of Doom showing a good amount of synergy as a tag team. However, in the closing stages, Mandy Rose is in the ring with Natalya when the Iiconics make their way out to boos from the crowd! They cut a promo mocking the Divas of Doom which distracts Natalya allowing Mandy Rose to roll Natalya up! Mandy hooks the tights and Sonya cuts Beth Phoenix off stopping her from breaking the cover giving Fire and Desire the win!

    Winners via pinfall: Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose (8:20)

    Michael Cole: Fire and Desire steal the win!

    Corey Graves: Mandy Rose would never steal anything. She was adjusting Natayla's tights!

    Renee Young: Are you for real Corey? You have to give an assist to the Women tag team champions the Iiconics either way for distracting Natalya and Beth Phoenix tonight.

    Corey Graves: The Iiconics were just out here to scout the potential competition!

    On the ramp, we see the Iiconics laughing, happy to have caused the Divas of Doom to lose whilst in the ring the Divas of Doom look furious. Fire and desire head up the ramp having picked up a massive advantage in the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

    When we come back from the ad break, we see The Iiconics walking through the back with their tag team titles around their waist.

    Peyton Royce: Did you see her face when she saw us?

    Billie Kay: Oh my god it was an iconic moment and maybe now they will learn they are not worthy at a shot at these titles.

    ???: Is that so?

    The Raw commissioner walks up behind the tag team champions whose look of joy turns to worry.

    Paige: I know you hold those belts and you think you can just swan into my house and do whatever you want but that is not going to fly.

    Peyton Royce: Listen Paige we were just trying to make this show more Iconic.

    Billie Kay: Like um (whispers in Peyton's ear) what's that film that is based on her life?

    Peyton Royce: Like Fighting with your family.

    Billie Kay: You read my mind. You are so awesome.

    Peyton Royce: No, you are.

    Paige: OK enough before I lose my mind. You two want to get involved in my money in the bank qualifiers fine. Peyton next week you have a chance to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match against a new talent I have signed to the Raw Women's division.

    Peyton Royce: Paige you are the best. Thank you.

    Paige: I wasn't done. First of all, Billie is banned from ringside and Peyton if you lose then you will have to put your tag team titles on the line against the Divas of Doom at Money in the Bank!

    Billie Kay: What! That is ridiculous and...

    Both the Iiconics run off as we see the angry Divas of Doom walk into the shot looking to get their hands on the pair. However, Paige stops them both.

    Paige: Girls listen. I have sorted it. If Peyton loses her money in the bank qualifier next week, they have to defend their titles against you two at Money in the Bank.

    Beth still tries to get past, to get her hand on the pair.

    Paige: But to make it fair you guys can't interfere next week.

    Beth does not look happy as Natayla responds instead.

    Natalya: OK Paige we won't get involved during the match.

    Both women leave with Beth Phoenix clearly very heated by the Iiconics actions tonight as we cut back to the ring.



    Humberto Carrillo makes his way out getting a small reaction from the crowd though it is cheers as the Cruiserweight makes his way into the ring,

    Michael Cole: Well up next we will see one of the new Cruiserweights on the Monday night roster in action.

    Corey Graves: Humberto Carrillo is very young but he has a lot of potential and was for a short time learning from Drew Gulak and the Gentleman Jack Gallagher.



    EC3 makes his way out next getting cheers from the crowd for the popular man from NXT as he has Drake Maverick by his side as he walks to the ring.

    Renee Young: Well EC3 has had a delayed start since coming to Monday night Raw but is looking to get things going and he was able to pick up the win last week against Mike Kanellis.

    Corey Graves: EC3 is someone who has all the tools to succeed and he is even making sure to look after his friend Drake Maverick now he is without a job.

    Michael Cole: Yeah, I have heard that EC3 has hired him as his manager and is paying for him to manage his personal affairs.

    Corey Graves: When you are in the top 1% you can afford those luxuries, Michael.

    EC3 steps into the ring joining Humberto acting very cocky. The young kid offers EC3 a handshake but EC3 smirks before saying no. The ref meanwhile rings the bell getting this match underway.


    Match 8: EC3 w/Drake Maverick vs Humberto Carrillo

    A shorter match then most of the others on the show tonight with Humberto in the first minute shocking EC3 and taking him down with his high-flying offense catching EC3 off-guard. EC3 though uses his power to take control but a hurricanna from Humberto followed by a dropkick sends EC3 down to the mat. Humberto Carrillo as the match is coming to an end makes his way to the top rope. However, Drake Maverick grabs his foot stopping him! He kicks the small man off sending him to the floor as he flies off looking for a splash but EC3 gets his knees up. EC3 follows with the one percenter putting away Humberto Carrillo.

    Winner via pinfall: EC3 (5:26)

    The crowd boos the result as EC3 has a smug smirk on his face as he is joined in the ring by Drake Maverick.

    Michael Cole: EC3 steals the win thanks to his new manager Drake Maverick!

    Corey Graves: Hey Michael that is what friends do for each other. EC3 helped Drake out and Drake returned the favor. When I do favors for my friends they do favors for me.

    Renee Young: I am surprised you have any friends Corey.

    EC3 and Drake Maverick carry on taunting the fans as they go up the ramp getting more boos from the crowd as EC3 picks up a win getting back on track after a rough start to his time on the main roster.

    Samoa Joe is walking backstage when he is approached by Charly Caruso.

    Charly Caruso: Samoa Joe, next week you have a Money in the Bank qualifier how are you feeling ahead of that match?

    Samoa Joe: How I am feeling? I don't know who I am facing for a chance to enter Money in the Bank but whoever it is knows they are facing me and the terror that must be going through their mind they might not even show up. And they would smart to do that. Because if they show up next week, I will put them to sleep. Like anyone who tries to take this title from me. Hell, I will even put my US title on the line for whoever is foolish enough to step into the ring with me!

    Samoa Joe walks off having sent his message as we cut back to the commentary team at ringside.

    Michael Cole: Well that is a big announcement for next week's Monday night Raw as Samoa Joe will not only face off against a mystery opponent for a spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match but he will put his US title on the line.

    Corey Graves: Well like Joe said it was an invitation for someone to get put to sleep!

    Renee Young: But that is not the only match announced for next week is it Michael.

    Michael Cole:That is right Renee. We have two more Money in the Bank qualifiers as Aleister Black takes on Cesaro and Peyton Royce takes on a new debuting star.

    Corey Graves: But if she loses The Iiconics will have to defend their tag team titles against the Divas of Doom at Money in the Bank!

    Renee Young: And we will also see The Usos take on Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura in tag team action!



    Braun Strowman's music hits to loud cheers from the crowd as the monster among men marches to the ring.

    Michael Cole: Well right now in the main event of Money Night Raw we will see last year's Mr Money in the Bank Braun Strowman take on AJ Styles.

    Corey Graves: We saw how unstoppable Braun was last year in the Money in the Bank ladder match and Braun is coming off a hot run of form after winning the Andre the Giant battle royal.

    Renee Young: But you have to remember that AJ Styles was WWE champion on Smackdown Live for nearly a full year. Whoever wins this match has to be the favorite to win the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match.



    The phenomenal one makes his way out next to loud cheers from the crowd with The Club by his side as they walk to the ring. Braun notices the pair with AJ Styles and does not look happy to see them.

    Michael Cole: Well the Club are out here to watch but I don't think Braun believes that.

    Corey Graves: The Club just want front row seats as they watch their boy earn himself a spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match!

    AJ Styles steps in the ring as Braun shouts some abuse at him which but AJ Styles is unfazed as the ref rings the bell getting the match underway.


    Main event: Money in the bank qualifier: AJ Styles w/The Club vs Braun Strowman

    AJ Styles tries to chop down the giant and take away his legs potentially setting up for the calf crusher throughout the match. He does some good damage to the leg of Braun but even with that Braun controls the match using his insane power. After about 7 minutes AJ ends up on the outside of the ring as Braun does his run around the ring shoulder barge. However, he does not touch the Club giving them one warning to leave. However, they refuse and shake their head staying at ringside.

    Braun picks up AJ and sends him into the ring. He starts laying into AJ with some power moves doing a lot of damage to the phenomenal one! After a couple of minutes laying into him, he lifts AJ up into the air as he goes for his running powerslam but AJ shifts his body and counters with a hurricanna sending Braun Strowman over the ropes to the ring floor! AJ Styles takes a moment to get his breath back before he flies over the top rope hitting Braun Strowman with a Phenomenal Forearm on the outside.

    The ref starts to count both men out as AJ gets to his feet slowly at 5 as The Club comes over to make sure he is OK. AJ is fine though and slides back into the ring. Meanwhile at the count of 7 Braun gets up and sees the Club still at ringside. Braun responds by attacking both men with a double shoulder block laying them out as the count gets to 9. Braun looks to get back in the ring but Karl Anderson grabs his leg causing Braun to not make it back inside in time and he is counted out!

    Winner via countout: AJ Styles (10:19)

    Michael Cole: AJ Styles is going to Money in the bank!

    Renee Young: But the Club disobeyed AJ and got involved.

    Corey Graves: Braun attacked them first. The Club are not going to take being attacked lying down!

    Braun on the outside is not happy as he lifts Karl Anderson up and smashes him on the ring floor. Luke Gallows goes to attack Braun but Braun turns around looking furious before taking his head off with a big boot. AJ, however, seeing this once again flies off the ropes and hits another Phenomenal forearm saving his friends. However, he sees the replay of what happened on the screen and is not happy. Both men explain what happened as AJ shakes his head but says he understand. Raw comes to an end with the Club walking up the ramp whilst on the outside of the ring Braun Strowman is pretty furious.

    Smackdown:
    April 23rd 2019
    Lincoln, Nebraska





    The Miz's music hits to a loud pop from the crowd to start off Smackdown Live.

    Corey Graves: Hello and welcome to tonight's edition of Smackdown Live.

    Tom Phillips: And we are starting the show off big with a special edition of Miz TV.

    Bryon Saxton: Yes, Tom his guest tonight is Roman Reigns. And for anyone not watching last week both men made it very clear they were not going to let Shane McMahon's ego control this show.

    Corey Graves: 2 men who are failing to show the proper respect to their boss.

    The Miz steps into the ring holding his microphone in typical Miz fashion as he listens to the cheers from the crowd enjoying it before he looks to speak.

    The Miz: Welcome to the most must-see talk show in history Miz TV!

    Pop from the crowd as Miz carries on.

    The Miz: In the last few weeks I have made it clear that until Shane McMahon is gone from Smackdown Live I will not rest and I will make his life a living nightmare. However, I am not the only person who is sick of Shane McMahon so would you welcome my guest at this time Roman Reigns!



    Roman Reigns gets a loud pop from the crowd as he makes his way out in his usual SWAT vest with a serious look on his face as he makes his way to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Well Roman Reigns shocked the world when he appeared last week and helped The Miz take out Shane McMahon's posse and Shane McMahon himself.

    Corey Graves: Roman Reigns has made a massive mistake crossing the boss on his first night on Smackdown Live.

    Bryon Saxton: I don't think Roman Reigns will care. The big dawg will do what he wants when wants.

    Roman Reigns makes his way over to one of the chairs in the ring taking a seat as Miz also takes a seat across the ring from him.

    The Miz: Thanks for agreeing to come on Miz TV Roman.

    Roman Reigns just silently nods as Miz looks to start the interview.

    The Miz: Now I know we have never been friends. Me and you have had our fair share of fights. However last week we bumped into each other backstage and you offered to help me fight Shane McMahon. Now I was happy to take them all on 4 by myself but what I have to ask Roman is why? Why did you offer to help me after what I have done to you in the past?

    Roman Reigns: It's really simple Miz. I am not going to stand for a repeat of the authority's reign of terror.

    Pop from the crowd as Reigns looks to carry on.

    Roman Reigns: Throughout the years I have been fighting against authority and when I came to Smackdown Live I saw Vince's silver spoon son trying to pull the same stuff his daddy did? Not on my watch.

    Reigns leans in closer to The Miz.

    Roman Reigns: I may not like you Miz but the last few months you have earned these people's respect. You see if there is one thing, I value more than anything else it is family. And I can see a man who feels the same!

    The Miz lets out a smile.

    The Miz: Thank you, Roman. Now...



    Miz is interrupted by Kevin Owens which gets a loud pop from the crowd though some do seem a little confused as Kevin Owens makes his way out to the ring with a microphone in hand. Roman Reigns though does not look happy to see one of his former enemies out here.

    Roman Reigns: Kevin if you are out here for a fight...

    Kevin Owens: Oh, you are damn right I am out here for a fight. I am out here for...

    Kevin pauses for a moment holding up a finger in the air.

    Kevin Owens: Wait wait wait I forgot someone.

    He takes a moment to wait on the ramp holding out his arms towards the entrance as The Miz and Roman Reigns both look on confused and unimpressed by Owens's antics.




    Sami Zayn's music hits getting a loud pop from the fans as he joins his best friend Kevin Owens on the entrance ramp as both men smile.

    Sami Zayn: Oh, it feels good to be back buddy.

    The Miz: Guys why are you out here interrupting the most must-see talk show in WWE history.

    Kevin Owens: But this is not the Kevin Owens show.

    The Miz looks furious at that line as Sami Zayn takes over.

    Sami Zayn: Kevin you suck at making friends.

    Kevin fakes being offended before shrugging and saying off-mic “you have a point”.

    Sami Zayn: Listen we have come out here looking for a fight but not with you two.

    Kevin Owens: We came out here to get our hands on Shane McMahon as well.

    Cheers from the crowd as Kevin Owens looks to carry on.

    Kevin Owens: Do you remember just over a year ago when me and Sami became friends again? We knew Shane McMahon was an egomaniac but no one listened to us.

    Both men join The Miz and Roman Reigns inside the ring.

    Sami Zayn: You two want to fight Shane McMahon and his group? That is fine because we want to as well.

    Kevin Owens: And the way I see it, there are 4 of us and 4 of them so what do you say?

    Both men look wary as Kevin Owens offers them a handshake as Reigns raises his microphone up looking to speak.

    Roman Reigns: My main question is why should we trust you? You have a habitat of stabbing people in the back.

    The Miz: He has a point Kevin; you have hardly proven to be the most trustworthy person over the years.

    Kevin nods as Sami Zayn looks to respond but Kevin Owens puts his hand on Zayn's microphone looking to speak instead.

    Kevin Owens: You are right. I have stabbed my friends in the back. Heck, I have stabbed the man next to me in the back countless times. However, when we were both injured, we spent a lot of time together and I realized the mistakes I had made. I ain't claiming to be a saint but I don't want my son to grow up in a world where egomaniacs like Shane hold power.

    Cheers from the crowd for the passionate speech by Kevin Owens as Sami Zayn looks to carry on.

    Sami Zayn: I have always been someone who fights for the little man and fights against people who abuse power. If me and Kevin can put aside our differences can't you put aside your distrust of Kevin too?

    Both men think about it when this music hits:




    Shane McMahon makes his way out to boos from the crowd as he is followed by Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, and Elias as Shane McMahon has a microphone looking to speak.

    Shane McMahon: First of all, can you cut my music.

    The music stops as Shane then looks towards the timekeeper's area.

    Shane McMahon: Now Greg Hamilton can you do my proper introduction.

    Kevin Owens: Greg if you so much as think about his stupid nickname, I will powerbomb you on this ring apron do you understand me!

    Greg Hamilton looks terrified but the angry response gets a pop from the fans.

    Shane McMahon: Really professional there Kevin really professional.

    Kevin Owens: I don't give a damn about being professional. You calling yourself the best in the world makes me sick.

    Baron Corbin: Show some respect to your boss Kevin.

    Roman Reigns: Baron how about you come down to this ring right now and make us.

    Pop from the crowd as Drew McIntyre walks forward more than ready for a fight but Shane McMahon stops him whilst Elias and Baron Corbin stay on the ramp.

    Shane McMahon: Nice try Roman but Baron Corbin already has a match tonight. However, you 4 want to fight us? That is fine. At Money in the Bank, it will be the 4 of us against the 4 of you in a tag team match.

    All 4 men in the ring are happy with that though The Miz looks to speak.

    The Miz: That is fine Shane but how about we give these people what they want and we have a Wrestlemania rematch right now!

    Loud cheers from the crowd excited at the prospect of The Miz giving Shane Mcmahon another beating.

    Shane McMahon: No.

    Loud boos as Shane carries on.

    Sami Zayn: Well since you are scared how about one of you 4 fight me right now in this ring.

    Elias: How about I put you in your place Sami?

    Shane McMahon: What a great idea Elias. Let's get a referee out here and after the commercial break, it will be Elias vs Sami Zayn.

    Shane McMahon's posse walks to the ring as the show cuts to a commercial break with Kevin Owens psyching up his friend Sami ahead of his match next.

    Match 1: Sami Zayn w/Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns and The Miz vs Elias w/Shane McMahon, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin

    When we come back from the commercial break the commentary team makes sure to mention that Shane McMahon announced that Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns and The Miz are banned from ringside for Baron Corbin's match against Apollo Crews later tonight. During this match, Elias looks to use as many cheap tricks as possible to keep Sami Zayn down but in the end, Zayn picks up the win with the blue thunder bomb!



    Winner via pinfall: Sami Zayn (7:30)


    Tom Phillips:
    Sami Zayn picks up the win in his first match back from injury.


    Corey Graves: A decent win for Sami Zayn on his return to the ring but you still have to wonder how well The Miz, Owens, Zayn, and Reigns will work as a team.

    Byron Saxton: Well they do all have a common goal Corey and that gives them the incentive to work together.

    Kevin Owens joins Sami Zayn in the ring to celebrate whilst Reigns and The Miz stand on the outside ready to fight Shane and his group but Shane and his group choose to get Elias out of the ring and make a quick retreat.

    We cut to the Riott Squad locker room with Ruby Riott stood up whilst Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan are sat down on the bench listening to what Ruby has to say.


    Ruby Riott: Tonight, we need to make sure I win. We have been causing chaos and messing things up but we have not won anything. We need to start winning titles so people know we are a serious threat and after tonight you girls will need to... Can we help you?

    The camera pans to show Nikki Cross stood there looking as crazy as she normally does whilst the Riott squad looks on very confused. Nikki, however, looks on just staring.

    Liv Morgan: Yo earth to Nikki what do you want?

    Nikki Cross: Nikki wants to play with the Iiconics and I need someone to play with so I can play with them. Did you want to play?

    All 3 laugh before Sarah Logan steps forward.

    Sarah Logan: Trust me when we go for the tag team titles we won't be playing with you.

    Nikki looks a little disappointed as Liv Morgan steps forward.

    Liv Morgan: Time to get lost, Nikki.

    Liv Morgan then slaps Nikki Cross in the face! Nikki holds her face for a second before she jumps on Liv Morgan and starts laying into her with wild lefts and rights. However, she does not get many shots off as Sarah Logan drags Nikki Cross off her and throws Nikki into the bench. Ruby then grabs hold of Nikki Cross before planting her with a DDT onto the locker room floor. All 3 women smile at their handiwork before Ruby Riott speaks.

    Ruby Riott: More of that!

    All 3 women walk off as Nikki sells the damage done but then weirdly starts to let out a creepy smile as we cut back to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Well The Riott squad are prepared for the main event of the show this evening where we find out who will be taking on Becky Lynch at Money in the Bank for the Smackdown Live Women's title.

    Corey Graves: The Riott Squad on Raw have always been able to cause chaos but they have yet to be able to convert that into titles. Maybe tonight Ruby can work towards changing that and you also have to imagine the Riott Squad will have their eyes on the tag team titles as well.



    Heavy Machinery make their way to the ring getting a decent pop from the crowd but nothing loud for the tag team who have been making a few appearances on the main roster over the last few months.

    Byron Saxton: Well last week Heavy Machinery were confirmed to be joining the Smackdown Live roster in the superstar shakeup and stopped the Revival from beating down Lucha House party after their match.

    Corey Graves:And that could be a mistake. The top guys will not be in a good mood after losing their titles to Ryder and Hawkins on Raw without getting a chance of a rematch.

    Bryon Saxton: Well there are no automatic rematch clauses Corey so they might have not even been given a rematch on Monday night Raw.

    Corey Graves: Shut up Saxton.

    Both men stand in the ring ready to speak to the crowd as Otis stands next to Tucker.

    Tucker: The past couple of months we have been going from show to show. Seeing the sights.

    Otis: Seeing the pretty ladies tucky tucky.

    Tucker: Trying out all the different stakes each city has to offer and the gyms they have.

    Otis: Steaks and weights baby, steaks and weights.

    Tucker: But we had to eventually settle down and now we are on Smackdown Live.

    Small cheer from the crowd.

    Tucker: And now we are on Smackdown Live, well we have our sights set on one thing.

    Otis: More steaks and more weights?

    Tucker pauses looking at his tag team partner before smiling and turning back towards the crowd.

    Tucker: OK two things. Steaks and weights as well as the Smackdown tag team titles.

    Otis: Oh, we want the belts we want those tag team belts for sure.

    Tucker: Exactly Otis but we also know we need to start picking up wins to get a title shot. And that brings us to last week.

    Tucker pauses for a moment before carrying on.

    Tucker: We saw two men who call themselves top guys, acting like bullies. Looking to attack Lucha house party after the match like a pair of cowards. No, we ain't standing for that.

    Otis: No, we ain't standing for it.

    Tucker: So, Revival we are calling you out!

    Both men wait for the Revival to make their way out.



    The Revival make their way out onto the ramp with microphones in their hands as Heavy Machinery invite them into the ring. However, The Revival shake their heads not interested in joining them in the ring.

    Dash Wilder: No no the top guys don't give away a top match without some hype.

    Scott Dawson: But you guys would not know anything about being top guys.

    Dash Wilder: We have been NXT tag team champions twice and Raw Tag team champions!

    Scott Dawson: Whereas you have won those titles zero times.

    Tucker: That is big talk for two men scared to get in the ring.

    Cheers from the crowd as The Revival look annoyed on the ramp.

    Dash Wilder: No, we aren't scared. We will fight you two on our terms, not yours.

    Scott Dawson: Why would be scared of two fat guys who have never won any titles?

    Both members of the Revival laugh at each other as the crowd boos them for the cheap dig. Tucker though turns to Otis signaling towards the Revival on the ramp.

    Tucker: Otis do you want to wait for their terms or do you want to fight them right now?

    Otis: Oh Tucky lets do this now.

    Both men climb over the ropes and head up the ramp as The Revival retreat backstage wanting no part of Heavy Machinery. Otis and Tucker shake their heads due to the retreat of The Revival.

    Bryon Saxton: Once the Revival prove they are all talk but when challenged they run away like cowards.

    Corey Graves:They are top guys Byron. They don't fight for free. Did you even listen to them?

    Heavy Machinery, once they are done shaking their heads, start to interact with the fans at ringside getting a few cheers from the fans as they realize they will have to wait another day to get their hands on the Revival.

    After the commercial break, we hear the music for Apollo Crews as he makes his way to the ring slapping hands with a few fans on the way to the ring. He has a big smile on his face as always getting a quiet pop from the crowd.

    Tom Phillips: Well this match was set up after Apollo Crews challenged Baron Corbin due to his post-match attack on Drake Maverick.

    Byron Saxton: Apollo Crews has made it clear he was not going to allow Corbin to pick on the smaller Drake Maverick. He almost commented on social media that the taunting from Corbin after retiring a legend like Kurt Angle is crossing the line.



    Baron Corbin makes his way out to the ring getting boos from the crowd as he soaks in the heat wearing his cheap waistcoat still as he walks to the ring soaking in the boos.

    Corey Graves: Here comes the man who ended the career of the hall of famer Kurt Angle!

    Byron Saxton: He didn't end the career of Kurt Angle. Angle announced before the match he was retiring!

    Corey Graves: He was the last man to beat Kurt Angle so he retired him. Heck, maybe we should start calling Baron Corbin an American hero!

    Corbin carries on goading the fans as they start chanting “YOU SUCK” at him but he just laughs to himself before joining Crews in the ring.



    Match 2: Apollo Crews vs Baron Corbin

    Apollo Crews puts in a decent performance but in the end, Baron Corbin takes control of the match when he gets the chance to lock in an ankle lock on Crews drawing even more heat from the crowd. Crews does not tap making it to the ropes but the damage slows him down allowing Corbin to hit the end of days for the win.


    Winner via pinfall: Baron Corbin (6:15)


    Baron Corbin rises to his feet as the boos reign down on the former acting general manager.

    Corey Graves: Baron Corbin picks up another win tonight! He is unstoppable.

    Byron Saxton: I hate to say it but he did put in a good performance tonight.

    Corey Graves: And he is going to help the Best in the World Shane McMahon and his team win at Money in the Bank.

    Baron Corbin walks up the ramp still goading the fans as he is still getting “YOU SUCK” chants from the crowd.

    When return from the commercial break Buddy Murphy sat on a chair in front of a blank wall.

    Buddy Murphy: People have been asking why I am yet to appear on Tuesday nights. Well, I have been preparing. You see next week I make my Smackdown Live debut when I take on a man, I am very familiar with, Cedric Alexander for the chance to be in the Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Buddy Murphy takes a moment to pause before he carries on.

    Buddy Murphy: You see I beat Cedric Alexander in my home country of Australia to become Cruiserweight champion before running through the competition on 205 Live. Cedric is a great competitor but I will show the world why I became known as the best-kept secret in WWE. However, he is not facing the same man he did on 205 Live.

    Buddy Murphy takes a moment before standing up from his chair.

    Buddy Murphy: You see now I am not competing for the Cruiserweight title so there is no weight limit for me to reach which means I have been bulking up. If you couldn't beat me before what chance do you have now Cedric?

    Murphy smirks.

    Buddy Murphy: And at Money in the Bank when I climb that ladder and unhook the briefcase, my greatness will no longer be a secret.

    The video comes to an end as we cut to Kayla Braxton who is ready for an interview.

    Kayla Braxton: Well strong words from Buddy Murphy but right now I have his opponent next week Cedric Alexander with me.

    Cedric is stood there looking focused and serious as she looks to ask him a few questions.

    Kayla Braxton: What do you think of Buddy Murphy's comments ahead of your Money in the Bank qualifier next week?

    Cedric Alexander: Listen he talks about beating me on 205 Live but times have changed. We are about to enter the age of Alexander. Last week I took on the WWE champion and took him to the limit. Now that has made me hungry. All that bulk that Buddy Murphy will be putting on will make his slower. Also, he can talk about his victory down under but next week we won't be in Australia so he won't have the home town advantage. Next week I plan to prove Buddy Murphy wrong and make my way into the Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Kayla Braxton: Now the Money in the Bank briefcase can be used on either the Universal or WWE Championship. If you won who would your target be?

    Cedric Alexander: I have nothing but respect for Seth Rollins on Monday Night Raw as Universal champion but after battling Kofi last week, I am hungry for more Kayla and if I were to win, I would be cashing in two nights later to take on Kofi for that WWE title one more time.

    Kayla Braxton: Thanks for your time Cedric.

    Cedric smiles before leaving the interview set.

    Daniel Bryan and Rowan make their way out to the ring after the commercial break getting boos from the crowd as Bryan has weirdly got his custom-made WWE title from when he was champion around his waist as he walks to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Well it looks like we are going to hear from Daniel Bryan who will be getting a rematch for the WWE title he lost at Wrestlemania against Kofi Kingston. But why has he got his former WWE title around his waist?

    Corey Graves: Maybe Daniel Bryan is showing to the world he is still the planet’s champion?

    Byron Saxton: Well I am part of the planet and he ain't my champion.

    Corey Graves: I am sure Daniel Bryan will be crying himself to sleep tonight Byron.

    Bryan and Rowan climb into the ring as the crowd are booing the New Daniel Bryan as he shakes his head.

    Daniel Bryan: Fickle. You people are fickle. But it is fine. Soon you will turn on Kofi just like you turned on me. Like you turn on everyone else.

    Rowan next to Bryan stands there and nods along as Bryan looks to carry on speaking.

    Daniel Bryan: Roman Reigns, John Cena, two men you used to cheer like heroes and you turned on them like the fickle sheep you are.

    Boos from the crowd.

    Daniel Bryan: But me I have never been fickle. I have always cared about the planet and making sure my daughter Birdie has a planet to live in! And that is why you people need me to beat Kofi at Money in the Bank!

    Boos from the crowd as some start to chant for Kofi and a few chants for The New Day.

    Daniel Bryan: You can boo all you want but I am the hero you need!

    Bryan lifts his signature WWE champion into the air.

    Daniel Bryan: Kofi Kingston's win at Wrestlemania was a fluke. A once in a lifetime miracle. He is still a B+ player and at Money in the Bank, I correct what happened taking back my title.

    More boos from the crowd until this music hits:



    Byron Saxton: Finally, New Day are here to shut Daniel Bryan up!

    Corey Graves: Byron once again proving he does not care about the environment.

    The New Day make their way out but there is no dancing and slapping hands with the fans or throwing pancakes as the trio are all business as they walk to the ring and climb inside joining Daniel Bryan and Rowan. Kofi has a microphone in his hands as do Big E and Xavier Woods.

    Kofi Kingston: You really sticking to that Bryan? That my win at Wrestlemania was a fluke? That I am a B plus player. Who have you become?

    That gets a few WHO WHO WHO chants from the crowd.

    Xavier Woods: Like I said before Wrestlemania you have become everything you hate. You call these fans fickle? No, you turned on them. You changed Bryan and not for the better.

    Cheers for Kofi and Woods as Bryan looks furious as he walks towards Kofi however Big E steps forward more than ready for a fight. Rowan also steps forward as Bryan puts his hand out not wanting a 2 on 3 fight.

    Daniel Bryan: You are right I did change. I changed for the better. These mindless sheep in the crowd are destroying the planet, looking to buy whatever new shirts you bring out. Looking to buy whatever cheap product you attach your face to next. Looking to be a part of the miracle that was you winning at Wrestlemania. I beat you twice before Wrestlemania and at Money in the Bank, I will beat you again.

    Boos from the crowd as Kofi looks furious. However, Big E has something to say.

    Big E: Kofi has worked his entire career and you are right Wrestlemania was a miracle. It was a miracle he finally got the opportunity to fight for the WWE title after having to overcome 11 years of adversity. Before Wrestlemania, he never got a 1 on 1 shot after years and years of winning title after title after title.

    Xavier Woods: 4-time Intercontinental champion.

    Big E: 3-time United States champion.

    Xavier Woods: And an 8-time tag team champion.

    Big E: 5 times with us!

    Cheers from the crowd as New Day hype up Kofi's career resume as Bryan rolls his eyes not looking impressed.

    Big E: He finally gets a shot and he won. You can call it a fluke but he is your W W...

    Daniel Bryan: Enough!

    Massive boos from the crowd as The New Day look annoyed.

    Daniel Bryan: The only reason he got to Wrestlemania was you two earning his shot for him. Without you two he does not make it to Mania. He can't pin me more than once. Lighting won't strike twice. At Money in the Bank, I will prove it was a fluke and become a 6-time World champion!

    Boos from the crowd as Bryan and Rowan look to head up the ramp as Kofi steps forward and leans over the ropes.

    Kofi Kingston: You think I can't beat you more than once? Did you not seen the gauntlets I had to run through to even have a chance at becoming WWE champion?

    Cheers from the crowd.

    Kofi Kingston: I had to beat world-class wrestler after world-class wrestler on my way to taking your title. But you think my pinfall was a fluke? How about I prove it wasn't at Money in the Bank? How about we raise the stakes?

    An oooh from the crowd as Daniel Bryan and Rowan have stopped on the ramp.

    Kofi Kingston: You think I can't beat you more than once? Well, why don't we make the match at Money in the Bank a 30-minute Ironman match!

    Cheers from the crowd excited for the prospect of Kofi Kingston fighting Daniel Bryan in an Ironman match. Bryan however on the ramp takes a moment to respond seemingly unwilling to accept the challenge.

    Xavier Woods: Are you all talk Bryan or do you want to prove your word means something? Maybe your talk about the environment is all...

    Daniel Bryan: ENOUGH! You want to show the world how outclassed you are when you step into the ring with me? I accept.

    Daniel Bryan throws the microphone down on the ramp. Both Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston hold their WWE titles in the air staring each other down with the stakes now being even higher at Money in the Bank.

    When we return from the commercial break, we see Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox stood in the ring ready for a match as they await their opponents.


    Tom Phillips: Well we heard Kofi's challenge and Daniel Bryan agreeing to it, well I have gotten word from backstage and it is official. At Money in the Bank Kofi Kingston will defend his WWE title in a 30-minute Ironman match against Daniel Bryan.

    Corey Graves: And the New Day once again prove why they are so stupid. Bryan has made a career out of wrestling matches for well over 30 minutes before WWE. Kofi has basically handed his WWE title back to Daniel Bryan!

    Byron Saxton: And once again your writing Kofi off? Haven't you learned not to write him off yet Corey? Kofi challenged Bryan to this match as he plans to prove that Wrestlemania was no fluke and he deserves to be WWE champion!



    We hear boos from the crowd as The Iiconics start to walk to the ring with their tag team titles around their waist.

    Tom Phillips: Well right now we will see the tag team champions in action against this odd pairing of Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox.

    Corey Graves: Both women are good wrestlers in their own right but they are not a team like the Iiconics.

    Peyton Royce steps into the ring starting for the Iiconics whilst Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke argue over who will start the match for their team.

    Byron Saxton: And that might cost them, Corey. The Iiconics are smart and know how to work as a team.


    Match 3: The Iiconics vs Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox


    The Iiconics put on a good showing as they work well as a team and in the end, Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke argue again leading to Peyton Royce knocking Alicia Fox off the apron. She tags in Billie Kay and they hit Dana Brooke with the Icon drop (running one-handed bulldog onto a kneeling knee) for the win.



    Winners via pinfall: The Iiconics (5:17)


    Tom Phillips:
    The Iiconics pick up the win!


    Corey Graves: Was it ever in doubt?

    Byron Saxton: And it was the teamwork the pair showed tonight which was the difference.

    Corey Graves: And we could soon be seeing Peyton with the Money in the Bank briefcase if she can win her Money in the Bank qualifier on Raw next week.

    Tom Phillips: Well, being a team won't help her in that match.

    In the ring, the Iiconics stand in the ring gloating and taunting the crowd as they show off their Women tag team titles. Alicia Fox meanwhile is on the outside shouting at her tag team partner tonight as the camera cuts to Lacey Evans shaking her head backstage. She is then approached by Dasha Fuentes for an interview.

    Dasha Fuentes: Lacey next week you will be facing Alicia Fox in a Money in the Bank qualifier. What did you think of her performance?

    Lacey Evans: Now if you do mind my manners Dasha I was not impressed. Her style was most unladylike and she acted classless after the match berating her partner. Next week I will show her a right, a woman's right.

    Dasha Fuentes: A lot of people talk about the risks that come with a Money in the Bank ladder match. If you were to defeat Alicia Fox how would you prepare for that?

    Lacey Evans: When I win Dasha but it is fine because I am here to correct the behavior of the nasties in the WWE universe and on Smackdown Live. I am a former marine so I am used to danger and that match will be nothing compared to what I faced during my time in the army. When I win the Money in the Bank briefcase, I will cash in on that Man Becky Lynch, showing her a lady is better than any Man.

    Lacey Evans after that line Lacey walks off with a smile on her face.

    When we return from the commercial break, we see a look at the skyline of a major city as the camera is clearly filming from high up on top of a roof as it cuts to Ricochet looking over the city.

    Ricochet: You know I just feel at home when I am high in the air. I always have really.

    He walks over before taking a seat on the edge of the roof.

    Ricochet: I know I am not the strongest wrestler but the risks I am willing to take give me an edge. No one on the planet can do the things I do. That may sound like arrogance but it is confidence.

    Ricochet walked away from the edge of the rooftop as he looks towards the camera.

    Ricochet: So, when it comes to Money in the Bank ladder match I will feel right at home when I am on top of a ladder pulling down the Money in the Bank briefcase!

    Ricochet lets out a smile as we cut back to the ring.



    Shelton Benjamin makes his way out getting little reaction from the crowd as he makes a rare appearance on TV. He shakes his head at the crowd before stepping into the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Well we just heard from the first man from Smackdown Live to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match but up next we will see if Shelton Benjamin can overcome our Intercontinental champion Finn Balor and get a spot in the match.

    Corey Graves: Shelton Benjamin feels slighted by the lack of time he has had on Smackdown Live. He wins tonight he is not only in the Money in the Bank ladder match but he also will have a claim to an Intercontinental title shot.



    Finn Balor the Intercontinental champion makes his way out as he has the Intercontinental title around his waist as he poses on the ramp to the delight of the fans.

    Byron Saxton: The Balor club is here in full force tonight.

    Corey Graves: A big test for Finn tonight. Shelton is an experienced competitor in the ring and someone hungry to have a taste of the limelight that Finn enjoys currently.

    Tom Phillips: Not only that but Shelton Benjamin is a former 3-time Intercontinental champion. And he will know a win tonight will also put him in line for a shot at the Intercontinental title.

    Balor steps in the ring posing for the crowd before staring down Shelton Benjamin as the ref rings the bell getting this match underway.


    Match 4: Money in the Bank qualifier: Finn Balor vs Shelton Benjamin


    Shelton Benjamin starts off the match very aggressive, desperate to win tonight to get his career back on track. Commentary talks about Shelton Benjamin having a lot of experience in Money in the Bank ladder matches in the past and almost being like a human highlight reel in them. Finn though survives the early onslaught as he wears down the gold standard before putting him away with the Coup D'Grace to advance to the Money in the Bank ladder match.



    Winner via pinfall: Finn Balor (9:41)


    Byron Saxton: Finn Balor advances to Money in the Bank!

    Corey Graves: Finn Balor picks up the win but you have to give Shelton Benjamin credit he gave the Intercontinental champion a tough match tonight.

    Tom Phillips: The Men's Money in the Bank ladder match is already looking stacked guys. You have Ricochet, Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor, Andrade Cien Almas, AJ Styles and 4 more names still to go!

    Finn Balor in the ring celebrates his victory as he holds his Intercontinental title on the top turnbuckle as the fans cheer him on.

    When we come back to the show, we see Bray Wyatt stood backstage once again with the War Raiders.


    Bray Wyatt: The War Raiders have come here to conquer and look what they have achieved already.

    Both men behind Bray hold their NXT and Smackdown tag team titles in the air.

    Bray Wyatt: However, they are hungry for more chaos. More carnage. More war. More victims. Next week we will be on Smackdown and we will see who wants to be destroyed next.

    Bray starts to laugh like a mad man whilst the War Raiders stand behind Bray Wyatt looking stoic and angry as we cut back to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Interesting words from Bray Wyatt there.

    Corey Graves: The War Raiders were scary enough in NXT on their own, now with Bray Wyatt leading them you have to wonder who on Smackdown Live or NXT can stop them?



    The Man Becky Lynch makes her way out with both of her Women titles on her shoulders with a cocky smirk on her face. The crowd let out loud cheers happy to see her with several “Becky2belts” chants starting up. She makes her way over to the commentary desk as she sits down and puts on a headset joining them.

    Byron Saxton: The Man Becky Lynch what do we owe the pleasure?

    Becky Lynch: Well I figured I would come out here and see which dope is next in line for a shot at the champ champ.

    Corey Graves: Shouldn't you be getting ready for the opponent you already know about?

    Becky Lynch: Listen I know about the “freakin legend” Mickie James and I will focus on her when on Raw. However, I have a second belt I am going to be defending at Money in the Bank.

    Tom Phillips: Do you think hopping between both shows and defending both belts at Money in the Bank will catch up to you?

    Becky Lynch: It might Tom it might but as The Man around here I have the responsibility to take on all comers and show why I am becky2belts! I am going to be a fighting champion and if the challengers were not coming to me looking to try to take these belts, I would find my own fights.



    Carmella makes her way out joined by R-Truth at the top of the entrance ramp as both take the time to have a little dance break to the delight of the fans.

    Byron Saxton: Well looks like Carmella is warming up ahead of this match with a 7-second dance break!

    R-Truth wishes his friend good luck as Carmella makes her way to the ring.

    Corey Graves: Carmella is a former Smackdown Women's champion and was the first woman to win money in the bank.

    Becky Lynch:She has always needed a man by her side though.

    Tom Phillips: Not a fan?

    Becky Lynch: Carmella is good but she has always had someone to help her get to the top. Maybe she can break out on her own one day but I have beaten her numerous times before. And if she wins I will beat her again.



    Ruby Riott makes her way out next and unlike Carmella, she does not send the Riott squad to the back instead bringing them to the ringside area.

    Becky Lynch: Speaking of people who can't do things on their own...

    Corey Graves: Ruby Riott is a hell of a talent.

    Becky Lynch: Yes, but since coming up from NXT she has always had her friends guarding her and look where it has got her. If you want to make it to the top you can't rely on others to get you there. You have got to do it yourself.

    Tom Phillips: How would you prepare for Ruby Riott?

    Becky Lynch: I would prepare to fight all 3 of the Riott Squad because that is what happens when you fight one of them. It is never 1 on 1.

    Ruby Riott chooses not to join Carmella in the ring instead staying on the outside with her friends Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan.



    A pop from the crowd as Ember Moon makes her way out to the ring to a decent pop from the crowd as she looks pumped and motivated tonight. She walks down to the ring as she plays to the fans before having a staredown with the Riott Squad.

    Byron Saxton: Ember Moon is someone I am a big fan of. She has so much potential that we have yet to see.

    Corey Graves: Please don't follow her home like the last girl you had a crush on.

    Tom Phillips starts laughing as Byron shakes his head.

    Becky Lynch: Ember Moon on Raw never got the chances she deserved. She is a former NXT women's champion and I would love to test myself against her.

    Ember Moon after staring down makes her way over to the commentary table as her and Becky Lynch have a small stare down with Becky smiling. Ember Moon then joins Carmella in the ring.



    Alexa Bliss makes her way out next getting a mixed reaction from the crowd as she walks to the ring with an angry look on her face. However, before getting in the ring she makes her way towards the commentary desk as she and Becky stare each other down clearly no love lost between the pair.

    Becky Lynch: You want some of the champ champ? Come on then.

    Bliss however just smirks making her way back towards the ring as Becky shakes her head.

    Corey Graves: That is no way to speak to a goddess Becky.

    Becky Lynch: Well you can say that your shrine at home later tonight Corey.

    Bryon Saxton: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Corey Graves: SHUT UP SAXTON.

    Tom Phillips: What are your thoughts about the prospect of facing Alexa Bliss someone you have had issues with in the past?

    Becky Lynch: I ain't the same person I was last time I faced Bliss. I am not a naïve girl who will fall for her tricks and if she tries any off them on me, I will break both of her arms.

    Bliss meanwhile once in the ring carries on taunting Becky inside the ring.




    The crowd goes wild as Becky goes silent as she sees the woman who tapped her out at the Royal Rumble to retain the Smackdown Women's title Asuka. She plays to the fans as she walks down the ring wearing her usual entrance attire.

    Corey Graves: Well the one person Becky was not ready for at the Rumble was Asuka. I am guessing Asuka is the person you least want to face at Money in the Bank.

    Becky responds by shaking her head.

    Becky Lynch: See I am not a coward like you Corey. I want Asuka to win this match. I want to avenge my loss. I am the best and whilst Asuka has that victory over me there is a black mark on my record!

    Tom Phillips: Well there has to be an extra motivation for Asuka tonight as like Charlotte she has not yet been given a rematch for the Smackdown Women's title she lost.

    Becky Lynch: A match Charlotte did not deserve and got given thanks to the McMahons favoring her as always.

    Asuka gets in the ring as Carmella and Bliss look a bit wary of standing next to the scary Asuka but Ember Moon shows no fear happy to be face to face with her rival from NXT.




    Charlotte the 8-time Women's Champion makes her way out to the ring with a smug smile on her face as the crowd reign down boos on the queen of the Women's division. She walks to the ring as the eyes of all the women are drawn to her.

    Corey Graves: The top star in the women's division.

    Tom Phillips: Well Charlotte feels this match should not even be happening as she was never pinned in the main event of Wrestlemania.

    Becky Lynch: Forgetting that I have been beating her for months on end.

    Charlotte taunts Becky before stepping in the ring as Asuka gets face to face with Charlotte. Ruby Riott at this point slides in the ring as the ref rings the bell getting this match underway.



    Main event: Number one contender's 6 pack challenge match: Carmella vs Ruby Riott vs Ember Moon vs Alexa Bliss vs Asuka vs Charlotte


    This match is a fun chaotic mess. In the early stages, it should be noted that the Riott Squad stay out of the match and just watch from the outside of the ring. Charlotte meanwhile tries to do as little as possible looking to pounce on any possible opportunities that come up. Surprisingly it is not Bliss doing that and she even at one point make sure Flair can’t stay on the outside and brings her into the ring getting loud cheers from the crowd. As the match goes on Ruby starts giving instructions to the Riott Squad telling them to get involved to help her. They keep stopping any pinfalls from everyone but Ruby Riott to an insane level as the other people in the match start to get more and more annoyed.


    In the closing stages, Bliss hits Carmella with her DDT but the cover gets broken by Liv Morgan! Bliss and Morgan end up going over the ropes fighting to the outside. Ruby looks to pick the pieces but Ember Moon stops her sending both to the outside. Charlotte also tries to stop the group from getting involved but Sarah Logan stops her leading to a battle on the outside between the Riott Squad, Charlotte, Alexa Bliss & Ember Moon. Meanwhile, Carmella is starting to recover in the ring as Asuka sneaks in behind her and locks in the Asuka lock. Carmella tries to escape but has no choice but to tap out!



    Winner via submission: Asuka (14:44)


    Asuka lets go of the hold as Carmella rolls out of the ring as the ref raises Asuka's hand in the ring. Meanwhile, on the outside of the ring, the Riott Squad are still fighting with Alexa Bliss, Charlotte and Ember Moon brawling towards the back.

    Corey Graves: Well you got your wish, Becky.

    Becky does not say a word as she puts down her headset and makes her way to the ring joining Asuka inside. Asuka carries on celebrating until she turns around coming face to face with the man. Her face turns into that signature Asuka smile as Becky responds by holding both of her titles in the air as the show fades to black.

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    The women who didn't win in the 6 Pack Challenge #1 Contender's Match for the Smackdown Women's Championship will probably end up in the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match

    So far there are only 3 women from RAW...but who will make up that 4th spot? Which 4 Smackdown women will qualify for the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match?

    So now Shane McMahon has dubbed himself and his merry band the new Corporation? So now we have a Corporation 2.0...I wonder who will be Shane's "Stooges" much like how Patterson and Brisco were for Vince?

    A 8 Man Tag Team Match at the PPV...with Reigns, Miz, Owens and Zayn teaming up to face The Corporation of Shane, McIntyre, Elias and Corbin...I can bet that this match will most likely be the main event or co-main event that either goes on last or goes on second last

    With the Men's Money in the Bank you now have 4 superstars...2 RAW guys (Andrade and Styles) I wonder who the other 2 RAW guys will be in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match? I wonder who the 2 other Smackdown superstars will be that punch their ticket to Money in the Bank?

    Asuka winning the 6 Pack Challenge to face off against Becky for the Smackdown Women's Championship...I mean these 2 did go at it earlier this year at the Royal Rumble PPV for that very title and Asuka was the champion then and she beat Becky...so I wonder if Asuka can do it again and become Smackdown Women's Champion once again? Either way Becky has to have 2 matches in one night...and I can't see her holding on to both titles...at best she will lose one of her titles and whichever one she loses she will end up going to whatever brand she has the title for

    Iron Man Match for the WWE Championship...Bryan vs Kofi...if anything I am probably more excited about this match than I am the WWE Universal Championship match at the PPV

    Re: WWE 2019 - No more Wildcards

    Jimmy Uso out for 7 months with a Ripped Bicep

    At a house show this week Jimmy Uso picked up a bicep tear ruling him out for 7 months! The planned tag team match between The Usos and Rusev & Nakamura will no longer be taking place on Raw due to this. This throws out the plans that were originally in place as it was meant to be an effective number one contender's match. What will now take place in the Raw tag team division is yet to be seen but rumor has the Street Profits were going to be called up soon but these plans may be sped up to fill the gap left by the Usos.


    Mod note: EWR hates tag teams clearly lol.

    At least with The Street Profits on RAW being a full time main roster tag team...it strengthens RAW's tag team division at least especially with The Usos being out of commission
