Commentary Team: Michael Cole, Renee Young & Cory Graves
Roman Reigns making his entrance.
Commentary speaks about Brock Lesnar’s announced cash-in tonight.
Before Roman can speak, Shane McMahon makes his entrance.
He demands his usual big intro from Mike Rome and says he’s not just called the Best in the World, he IS the Best in the World, and he’s gonna beat Reigns from one side of the ring to the other. Then when he’s ready, he’s gonna climb the top rope and go Coast 2 Coast before pulling him into the middle of the ring to either pin him or make him tap out for the first time ever in his career.
But that wouldn’t satisfy him, because when the referee tells him to break the hold, he won’t. He makes his own rules, so he’ll tighten the triangle choke up a little more before he’s announced as the winner. Roman says the only thing that’s gonna happen is he’s gonna pick McMahon up and put him through the mat. When he’s in the ring with Reigns, it’ll be like he has two left feet, and he only made it this far with the help of Drew McIntyre.
Enter Drew McIntyre.
He says he doesn’t like Texas and demands some respect before addressing the Big Dog and saying everything Shane said is 100% correct and he’s going to beat him at Super Showdown before Drew ends him at Stomping Grounds. But that’s the future, what Roman needs to worry about is the present, and he’s just hit an idea– they don’t need his partners, they’re gonna take Reigns out right now!
They advance… and the Revival attack from behind! The Usos make the save! We got a brawl! And the match is on right now!
THE BLOODLINE VS DREW MCINTYRE & THE REVIVAL:
McIntyre with a Belly to Belly on Jimmy, but Roman makes the save, Dawson with a Neckbreaker for a 2 count, Spinebuster for a 2 count, Roman is locked & loaded, Drew ducks and hits the Glasgow Kiss,Suprman Punch, one for Dawson, Jey up top, but Shane crotches him, Roman is ready to tear Shane’s head off, Drew with a Claymore Kick, Revival with The Shatter Machine on the floor on Jimmy then Drew finishes Jey with The Claymore Kick for the win
WINNERS: DREW MCINTYRE & THE REVIVAL
Shane’s putting the badmouth on Roman, Revival with a Shatter Machine then Drew with another Claymore Kick, Shane wants them to hold Roman and then he Spears Roman and mocks him. (Shane’s vowing to hit Coast to Coast Friday right? I’m calling it now he goes for it & Roman is going to break him in half with a Spear in mid-air to win at the Saudi House Show)
The Miz makes his entrance.
He launches MizTV with an “Alright, alright, alright” before jumping into his usual introductory spiel. He says tonight isn’t about him, it’s about the looming threat of Brock Lesnar cashing in, and introduces his guest tonight, Seth Rollins.
He asks Rollins what’s going through his mind tonight but Seth says he’s making a lot of assumptions– that Brock is showing up, that Paul Heyman was telling the truth, and so while he’s prepared, he’ll believe it when he sees it. Miz says they’ve both won Money in the Bank and they know the power of that contract, but the contract is now in the hands of the Beast Incarnate.
Rollins says he understands the gravity of the situation but truth is if Brock showed up and cashed in, he’d be relieved, because he can’t focus on what might be, he has to focus on what WILL be, and that’s his title defense against Baron Corbin at Super Showdown. He knows nobody wants that but Baron did win the #1 contender’s match last week and his desire to be a fighting champion means he has to focus on stomping Corbin’s head into this mat.
We cut backstage where we see Paul Heyman get out of a black SUV, followed immediately by Brock Lesnar. Heyman says they’re going to cash in and they start walking to the ring. They stop after about fifty feet and Lesnar turns left after a beat, heading deeper into the bowels of the arena and making Seth stew in the possibilities the cash-in
Lucha House Party make their entrance.
Lars Sullivan makes his entrance and hits the ring. LHP try to swarm him, he shrugs them off and freight trains Kalisto on a springboard! The luchadors fire up and manage to knock him out of the ring but Sullivan lands more or less on his feet and shrugs them off.
We go backstage with Nikki Cross and the Iconic Duo, who are picking on her when Alexa Bliss rolls up to ask if they have a blooming onion to eat somewhere. Peyton Royce says no, she actually has a match against Nikki that she’s gonna go prepare for. They walk off and Bliss invites Cross to go get some coffee, admitting that no one around here can stand her.
Nikki says she doesn’t care, Bliss has been nothing but kind to her and they’re friends. Alexa says because they’re friends she doesn’t need to be bashful about asking for favors, and she’ll be in her corner in her match tonight
Becky Lynch gets on the mic.
She greets Austin, Texas before saying she’s been doing some thinking and she wants to make some changes. She got home this weekend and it was the first time in 63 days since she’d been home. In that time she fought across Europe, made a ton of TV appearances, switched brands, and won the main event of WrestleMania. All her dreams came ture and she’s never been more content in her entire life, but that’s when it hit her.
Contentment is the worst thing that could happen to a fighter like her, because content fighters get hurt, passed over, or beaten, but that won’t be her. When Lacey Evans helped Charlotte Flair take the SmackDown title from her, it woke something in her, and when she’s really pissed off, there’s not a woman in this business that can keep her down.
So if you’ve wronged her in any way, shape, or form, she’ll break her back trying and break her hands fighting until she gets hers–
Enter Lacey Evans.
She calls Becky a dog chasing a car and says she did her a favor because she shouldn’t be the face to represent the women of WWE. Lynch says she’ll rip her arm right out of her socket, to which Lacey says not to confuse her with Flair, because she’s not in her head and she’s not to be messed with. Yes, she lost at Money in the Bank, but Evans is why Becky walked out with one title less.
And when she’s done, she’ll be Becky No Belts, because she refuses to let a woman like her represent the division.
Enter Charlotte Flair.
She talks about her title victory and says she may not be SmackDown Women’s Champion right now, but– Evans asks what she’s doing strutting like a daddy’s girl that needs attention, and Flair enters the ring to rebut that. She struts like a peacock because she’s more than halfway towards beating her daddy’s sixteen-time title record. (Well, it’s actually more like 19 at minimum but WWE scorekeeping is WWE scorekeeping.)
Lacey calls Charlotte yesterday’s news and says she’s the face of WWE so Flair needs to run along back to SmackDown unless she wants to be educated with a Woman’s Right… which she pops off with right now, taking Charlotte to one knee in the ropes!
Referee Shaun Bennett is in the ring and Flair and Evans are in their gear, so
LACEY EVANS VS CHARLOTTE FLAIR:
They both go for Running Crossbodies, Lynch drags Charlotte to the floor to cause a dq, or I thought, the ref’s calling it a no contest apparently
WINNER: NO CONTEST
back in the ring, she has Lacey, Wrist-Clutch Sambo Suplex she calls it The Lass Ride
Rey Mysterio makes his entrance.
He gets on the mic and says he’s gonna lay it out straight. WWE is in his blood, and it’s been in his family’s blood as well, and he wants to make sure he sets the right example for his son, as a man, and as a champion. Due to his previous shoulder injury…
Enter Samoa Joe. He asks if he came out too early and ruined his big moment before begging forgiveness because he knows what this means to Rey. See, he was in the back and heard the word “champion” and thought it was his cue. But don’t let him interrupt, he just has one addendum to his little speech, and that’s that he doesn’t want to ruin the moment when Mysterio tells a lie about being injured.
He’s not giving it up because he’s hurt, but rather because he never pinned Joe. Rey says he’s not here to have a moment or to fool anybody. It’s definitely not the moment he wanted it to be, but he’s won titles his entire career, through pain and through injuries, and if he’s man enough to do that, he’s man enough to do what he came here to do tonight.
So due to his current shoulder injury, he’s here to relinquish the United States Championship to Samoa Joe. Rey takes the title off, unbuttons it, and lays it on the mat for Samoa. He says this ain’t the last you’ve heard of him and he’ll be back… AND JOE ATTACKS! COQUINA CLUTCH! He leaves Mysterio laying and walks out with his title.
We cut backstage where Paul Heyman is on the phone and Brock Lesnar is putting his fighting gloves on
Braun Strowman win the arm wrestling match then Lashley throws chalk in his eyes
Punching away, duck a lariat, shove him into the turnbuckles, scoop… RUNNING POWERSLAM ON THE MONSTER!
We get a recap of yesterday’s 24/7 Championship title changes before going backstage right now, where Drake Maverick and EC3 (EC3 couldn’t be less interested in this whole thing) are stalking Carmella as she looks for R-Truth
NIKKI CROSS W/ALEXA BLISS VS PEYTON ROYCE W/BILLIE KAY:
Royce with MMA Elbows, Cross with a Running Bulldog for a 2 count, up top, Peyton avoids the Diving Crossbody, Bliss has someone bring her coffee during the match, Royce kicks the coffee out of her hand, Bliss distracts Royce, Kay shoves down Bliss, Cross blocks a Suplex and hits the Typhoon Cyclone Neckbreaker for the win
WINNER: NIKKI CROSS
Bliss with a Dropkick on Kay then a Snap DDT
Seth Rollins is in the ring to cut a promo.
He talks about how he wanted everyone to be gunning for him but not like this–
Enter Brock Lesnar.
Or not, because his music plays briefly but the Beast Incarnate is nowhere to be seen. Seth says he’s sick of it so he wants to talk directly to Brock. He used to be one of the most feared men on the earth, but now he’s just a shell of that, so if there’s any shred of the Beast left in him, he dares him to come out and cash that contract in right here, right now.
Enter Baron Corbin.
He says that Rollins is all fired up, it’s just a shame he’s concerned with the wrong guy. Seth says if he wants the title he has to pry it from his cold dead hands, and Baron says he’s okay with that given how he retired Kurt Angle and all. In fact he has no problem retiring Rollins, either, and that gets Seth hot enough to attack and lay his punches in.
Corbin fends him off, fair fight, Seth ducks a lariat and hits an enzuigiri that sends him to the floor! Suicide dive connects, shirt off, fired up… Lesnar’s music hits again and the Lone Wolf hits End of Days!
Enter Brock Lesnar for real this time, chair in hand! Low blow, chairshot after chairshot across the champion’s back, drawing him up.. German suplex! Another chairshot, Paul calling for the cash-in but Lesnar won’t do it yet! Dumping Rollins to the floor, chasing after him, fireman’s carry… F-5 on the floor! Heyman seems confused but Brock stalks after Seth again, more chairshots in the ring!
Another German Suplex, Paul begging him to cash in but Lesnar won’t do it and he screams “Friday!” (I knew it, I fucking knew it, they’re going to waste the MITB case for that fucking Saudi house show)
in his advocate’s face before picking the Universal Championship up and draping it across Rollins’ fallen body. They go to leave, Brock grabs the briefcase and returns to the ring where he hits Seth in the back with the case for good measure. Another series of chairshots and this time Lesnar leaves for real.
Medics hit the ring with a board and a stretcher to remove Rollins from the ring
We go back into a loading bay where Seth is rolled into an ambulance with Jamie Noble, Scott Armstrong, and Becky Lynch at his side. Lynch gets in and leaves with him as he’s taken to a local medical facility.
Up next, a very special episode of Firefly Fun House.
Bray Wyatt says today he’s got something super serious to talk to us about– EXERCISE! He says to be at your best, you gotta look good and feel good. He brings us over to Huskus the Pig Boy (I get the feeling this is a reference to his old Husky Harris perona), who doesn’t take very good care of himself. He’s eating chocolate and Bray swats it out of his hands before saying nobody will tell him, but one day all this gluttony is gonna come back and bite him in his tail.
But one day people will call him great, a genius that has the whole world in his hands. A Vince McMahon puppet with devil horns busts through the doors to threaten Huskus with being fired if he doesn’t get his act together, which leads us to a Bray Wyatt music video that is wow.
He closes the episode by reminding us that he’ll always light the way as long as we let him in
Triple H makes his entrance, but before he can do much more than soak in some “NXT!” chants…
Enter Randy Orton.
They face off and HHH says it’s been a while but they know what these segments are about, trying to drum up some interest in a fight. But the truth is, everything they’ve been through, twenty years, nothing either of them can say is anything they haven’t already said. So he’s not wasting anybody’s time– it’s been a while, but don’t let this suit fool you, he’s coming to Jeddah to kick your ass.
Randy says that sounds good but Hunter needs to understand one thing– he’s not Batista, he’s the Legend Killer, and he’d gladly beat him and put another notch on his belt. Triple says that’s fair enough but it’s interesting these last couple weeks, watching the recap videos of the unspeakable things they’ve done to each other but one thing stood out.
Something he said that rang true– they put the pressure on Orton and he’d become a diamond in the business, and he’s not here to blow smoke, but Randy is one of the best ever to step foot in the ring. And he means that, but here’s the thing– a lot of people tried to put him down, but he’s still here, and Randy isn’t the one to do it.
Orton asks for a promise, that Hunter will retrieve his balls from Stephanie’s purse before their match. HHH says his balls are so big it’s a burden, but Randy wouldn’t know about that because he’s never had any.
Baron Corbin is interviewed backstage and says he needs to get out of here so he can celebrate the favor Brock Lesnar just did him, cracking six or seven of Seth Rollins’ ribs. He says he’s the next Universal Champion and walks off. (Corbin has apparently not figured out yet that if Brock’s cashing in Friday that means he’ll face to face Lesnar too)
RICOCHET VS CESARO:
Cesaro with a Backbreaker for a 2 count, Ricochet with a Sunset Flip for a 2 count, Cesaro with a Deadlift Superplex from the apron back in for a 2 count, Cesaro counters the Yoshi Tonic mid flip into a Giant Swing, Rolling Swiss Uppercut for a near fall, Ricochet with a Springboard Crossbody, but Cesaro rolls through for a near fall, Ricochet with a Victory Roll for a near fall, Dejavu into a rollup for the win
Cesaro blasts Ricochet and pulls out a table that Truth’s been hiding on all night, Carmella comes out followed by everyone else, Cedric with a Tope con Hilo wipes out the entire pile, Drake Maverick has Truth cornered, but Carmella wastes Drake with a Princess Kick as she & Truth once again make a hasty retreat
The Undertaker makes his entrance.
He gets on the mic and asks if you ever wonder what happens when you become face to face with death for the very first time, positing several thoughts about the sky growing dark and the stench of souls and whatnot. He calls Goldberg out and says this Friday he’ll get the answers to all those questions, and when he stands across the ring from him for the first time, he doesn’t want Goldberg the family man smiling, no, he wants the unstoppable, mythical icon that is Goldberg.
He promises, if he brings anything less, their first match will be their last as he unleashes an inhumane level of brutality. When the reaper beckons, you answer his call, and Taker will claim his soul for all of eternity.
He declares that Goldberg is next.
