Kickoff Show (Night Two)
Natalya vs. Liv Morgan
There were several near falls in this match. This felt like a match you would see on Raw. Nothing wrong with it but nothing spectacular. Morgan got the win by pinning Natalya.
There was a backstage segment with Dolph Ziggler and Sonya Deville. They tried to do damage control and tried to come up with a story to explain the video that aired on SmackDown. They did all of this with a camera in their face. Sonya and Dolph said Mandy Rose has not been replying to texts or tweets.
Main Card (Night Two)
They started with a message from Stephanie McMahon and then they played the same intro that played last night. Host Rob Gronkowski kicked things off and then they went to the first match.
WWE NXT Women’s Championship
Rhea Ripley (Champion) vs. Charlotte Flair
Rhea hit the Rip Tide in the first two minutes of the match but it was too early because Charlotte was able to kick out of the pin attempt. She rolled out to the floor to regroup. Charlotte eventually got back on offense and she began to attack Rhea’s left leg. She continued to work on the leg for several more minutes until Rhea got a roll up and she began her comeback. There was a lot of talking among both women during this match.
Several minutes later, Rhea locked in a Texas Cloverleaf submission but Charlotte was able to get out of the hold. Charlotte applied a Boston Crab submission hold but Rhea broke out and then there were multiple pin attempts from both women as they kept rolling each other up. Moments later, Charlotte attempted a moonsault but Ripley got her legs up to counter. Charlotte hit a spear and attempted a pin but Rhea kicked out. Charlotte locked in the Figure Four and she forced Rhea to submit. Charlotte is the new champ.
They recapped the matches from last night.
Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley
This was fast and hard-hitting from the start. In the opening minute of the match, Bobby (who is wearing long trunks these days) hit an overhead belly to belly on Black outside of the ring. Moments later, Black was on offense and he hit a moonsault off the top rope and to the outside on Lashley.
Late in the match, Lashley was setting up for the Dominator but Lana called for the spear. That cost him the match because Black caught Lashley with the Black Mass for the win. It looks like a Lana-Lashley split is coming.
Kayla Braxton interviewed Sasha Banks and Bayley. Bayley tried to downplay rumors of trouble between her and Bayley. Kayla brought up that Sasha has never won the SmackDown Women’s Title. Sasha seemed bothered by that.
Rob Gronkowski was interviewed by Charly Caruso. He wants the 24/7 title by the end of the night.
Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler
Sonya Deville was in Dolph’s corner during this match. Otis dominated most of the match but the tide turned thanks to Sonya distracting the referee. This allowed Dolph to hit Otis with a low blow. As soon as that happened, Mandy Rose walked to ringside and she slapped Deville and then hit her with several punches. Mandy hit Dolph with a low blow and that allowed Otis to get back up to hit the caterpillar and the elbow to the chest. Otis pinned Dolph to win the match.
Last Man Standing Match
Edge vs. Randy Orton
Orton didn’t come down the ramp. Instead, he was dressed as a cameraman as Edge waited. Orton surprised Edge with the RKO out of nowhere. As the bell rang and the match got started, Orton immediately hit another RKO. Edge rolled out to ringside but Orton caught him on the head with a camera and that knocked Edge over the barricade where the chairs would normally be.
They continued fighting through the gorilla position and into the gym area. Orton kept telling Edge that he will always love him as the beatdown continued for several minutes into the match in the gym. Edge was finally able to get back up by using a pull-up bar to get himself up and kick Orton in the chest. After several more minutes of brawling in the gym, they made their way into a narrow space of the building. This was mostly kicking and punching up until this point. Orton shoved Edge off a platform and into the ringside barricade and the ref began counting but Edge got up on his feet at the count of 9. Orton kept beating on Edge as they moved to the locker room and office area of the building. They continued brawling in a conference room area for a few minutes before slowly making their way back towards a storage area. Several minutes in the storage area and Edge did a dive off a platform through Orton and through a table. Orton was bleeding from a cut on his back.
After about 25 minutes into the match, they made their way on top of a parked semi-truck. Orton tried to put Edge but Edge caught him with a spear. Edge tried another spear but Orton caught him with the RKO. Orton hit Edge with a chair to the back and then he went to hit the con-chair-to but Edge got up and used his new submission hold, the same one he used on MVP a few weeks ago. Edge hit the con-chair-to on Orton’s head. That was the final blow and Orton could not get up to his feet so Edge won the match.
As expected, Rob Gronkowski won the 24/7 title. This happened after a bunch of trainees from the PC chased Mojo Rawley to the ringside area. Gronk dove off the platform he was on all night and then pinned Mojo and ran out of the PC.
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
The Street Profits (Champions) vs. Austin Theory and Angel Garza
This was a fast-pace and high flying match from the start. There was lots of talking to make things a little more exciting in the empty Performance Center. This math didn’t get a ton of time. Dawkins pinned Theory so The Street Profits retained the titles.
Theory, Garza and Zelina Vega attacked after the match but Bianca Belair ran into the ring to make the save. Bianca and husband Montez Ford celebrated after the match.
WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
Bayley (Champion) vs. Lacey Evans vs. Naomi vs. Sasha Banks vs. Tamina
Bayley and Sasha worked together for most of the match until the final few minutes. Bayley didn’t try to help Sasha when she was pinned by Lacey Evans. The finish was Banks running back in to hit the Banks Statement on Evans. There was no DQ in this match so that was legal.
Tamina pinned by everyone at the same time
Naomi eliminated by Sasha Banks via the Banks Statement submission
Sasha Banks eliminated by Lacey Evans via pin after the Last Right punch.
Bayley pinned Lacey Evans.
Firefly Fun House Match
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
John Cena made his entrance but was cut off by the Firefly FunHouse music and Bray appeared inside of the Fun House. Bray said Cena would be facing his most dangerous opponent…himself. Bray led the Funhouse and then the camera panned out and Cena was suddenly in the house.
Ramblin’ Rabbit appeared and told him Bray left through the door. Cena left the house and he was suddenly inside of a dark room and then puppet Mr. McMahon appeared. Puppet McMahon asked Cena if he has enough Ruthless Aggression and if he doesn’t then he’s fired. Bray appeared in the ring and issued a challenge overlayed with Kurt Angle’s 2003 challenge from SmackDown. Cena accepted and he was dressed as the 2003 version of himself when he was a rookie. Macho Mercy and Mr. McBossman called the action as the Saturday Nights Main Event theme played for some reason with the full intro as it played in the 80s. Bray then appeared in a SNME type of promo behind a cage, similar to Hulk Hogan. This was awesome. Cena appeared next to Bray while pumping iron as they both cut a crazy 80s style promo with 80s music playing in the background. So much was happening here. Cena’s arms go too tired from pumping iron so he couldn’t lift them to fight Bray.
Bray shoved Cena into another room that had the old SmackDown fist and Cena was suddenly dressed in the Thuganomics version of himself. Cena did a rap about Husky Harris not being able to manage his weight. He called Bray a disappointment and a slut for an opportunity. Bray said he has had to earn everything in life and still it gets taken away while John is the golden goose and his chances are unlimited. Bray called John a bully and a horrible person because he takes weaknesses of others and he turns them into jokes. He said John does anything for fame. John rapped again as dark music played. John charged at Bray in the corner of the ring but Bray moved and then he hit John with a chain to the head.
All of a sudden, the original main roster version of Bray appeared on his rocking chair. He said John was supposed to be a man of the people but he didn’t listen. Clips of their WrestleMania 30 aired during this part. Bray said he is going to rewrite his own story. Bray attacked Cena in the ringand then he tried the Sister Abigail but Cena slipped out. Bray gave him a chair. Cena swung the chair but Bray disappeared.
NWO Monday Nitro intro played and Bray was dressed like Eric Bischoff with an NWO shirt. Bray introduced John Cena, who was dressed like Hollywood Hogan with the spray painted WCW title. Cena tackled Bray and punched down on him but Huskus the pig appeared in place of Bray and then The Fiend appeared behind Cena. The Fiend hit Sister Abigail and then applied the Mandible Claw as Mr. Rogers Bray counted to three.
This was crazy.
Brock Lesnar (Champion) vs. Drew McIntyre
Lesnar started out with offense. Drew hit the Claymore about 30 seconds into the match. Lesnar hit two German suplexes and an F4 but Drew kicked out of the pin attempt at 1.
Lesnar hit another F5 but Drew kicked out again. Brock hit another F5 but Drew kicked out once again.
Drew fought back and he hit consecutive claymores to win the title. He pinned Lesnar. As is the case with most Lesnar matches, this only went a few minutes.
