Smackdown Review 9-25

The continuation of the Jey Uso/Roman Reigns story. The Intercontinental title picture picks up. More character turns for Alexa Bliss on the Smackdown Review.

Triple Threat Match

I don’t care how this came about. I know Sammy Zayn hit both Jeff Hardy and Aj Styles with a ladder but why in the hell are we seeing this match two days before the Clash. This was lazy and it just hurt the PPV match. Sammy wins and I could care less. This took up the first half-hour of the show.

Otis Promo

I love the Otis character. But giving him the Money In The Bank win was an atrocious decision. It’s clear he is not going to cash it in and either Miz or Morrison will use it and lose. I am so tired of this angle. And they keep mentioning Mandy Rose who is on Raw. Miz and Morrison are way too talented to waste at this angle. Otis and Tucker should be challenging for the tag titles.

Bayley Promo

Bayley comes out still abusing Sasha Banks. Bayley says she has no time to talk about Sasha because she has a championship match coming up. She spoke about Nikki Cross saying this is going to be different because Sasha is not watching Bayley’s back. I think the Mysterious woman who is Carmella is going to help Bayley win.

Gran Metalik vs Nakamura

Another matchup with some members of the Lucha House Party and Cesare/Nakamura. Who cares at this point. Nakamura wins and we see yet again another incident that will lead to the breakup of the Lucha House Party. Does anyone really care?

Jey Uso Promo

Jey Uso is banging on Roman’s door which leads into a Roman/Jey La Familigia package. The Samoans and Rikishi are talking about the Usos and Roman growing up. Then we get into the ring for Jey’s promo. He is calling Roman out looking for an answer on Roman staring him down after last week’s match. We see Heyman say Roman will answer on his time and he is busy right now but he will answer it tonight.

I love this Roman turn with Heyman and this story is being built great. Why? Because it is a real-life angle.

Matt Riddle vs King Corbin

Matt Riddle loses again and I have no idea why. Maybe Riddle has backstage heat. He cuts a weird promo after the match saying he is not going to stop working.

Mysterious Woman

Okay, we know this is Carmella. At least it’s not Eva Marie. She better appear either at the PPV or nest week.

Alexa Bliss vs Lacey Evans

Lacey wins by DQ when Alexa snaps after hearing Bray laugh and the Fiend’s music play. I love this and Alexa is really selling this great.

Thumbs up

Roman/Jey Uso Promo

This promo at least made the show kind of bearable. Roman comes out first and just as Heyman is about to talk Jey’s music plays. Jey is feeling disrespected. Roman says he would give Jey the title is he could but he would not know what to do with it. Roman says he is the face of the WWE and he could never understand it. Roman says our family relies on me being the Tribal Chief. Roman says that’s not you and it never will be and it always will be him.

Roman drops the mic and leaves but Jey who is looking down starts to talk. He said what if you are wrong. Roman stops walking. Jey said why can’t it be me to run the family. Jey says do you know what they say when they see me. They say which one are you? Jey says after Clash everyone will know who he is. As he is about to walk into the back Roman gives him a superman punch. Roman says he provides for everyone’s family and that the family needs him to be champion. He says Jey is going to get an ass-whooping and that he will never sit at the head of the table.

I loved this. Jey cut the promo of his life and it was based on real life.

Outlook

Three ups and six downs. Outside of Reigns/Uso and Alexa, this show sucked. Those two angles are really strong though. Terrible job by WWE on this go-home show.  Nothing else needs to be said.

Monday Night Raw Review 9-21

Retribution Opens The Show

Retribution has officially signed contracts. The five main members are in the ring and we can see who each of them is despite being in masks. The Hurt Business comes out to the ring and the Retribution five leave the ring. MVP cuts a promo challenging them to a match. More Retribution members surround the ring. A brawl starts.

I am getting a little tired of them, to be honest. At least we are getting them in the ring tonight. How many members do they have? So I will hold off on my up or down on this angle until later on. But I loved that the show started off hot.

Thumbs up

Interview With Rey Mysterio

Rey says the family is everything. I must say Rey’s daughter is beautiful. I am sure we will see more of this later on. No rating for the promo.

Triple Threat Tag Team Match: Andrade/Garza vs. Seth/Buddy vs. Dominik/Humberto

I have so many problems with this. First of all this match is for a shot at the Street Profits. Seth/Buddy and Dom/Humberto are not tag teams and don’t deserve this opportunity. Dom/Humberto has not won any tag matches. Seth/Buddy won just one match.  Plus Seth is leaving soon and he walked out on Buddy during the match. I hate when matches are predictable. Secondly how many times are Andrade and Garza going to break up? And Zelina Vega was not at ringside. This just tells you how bad the Men’s tag team divisions are in the WWE.

Andrade/Angelo Garza win the match but no real business was accomplished.

Raw Underground Recap

I believe this is the first time they have had a recap of Raw underground during the first two hours. Shane is going on the KO show. Shane says he is cool with KO and he always has a couple of surprises for KO.

KO Show With Shane

KO says I never thought I would be giving this person a platform but 2020 has been crazy anyway. Shane and KO go back and forth on the mic. These two are good at promos together.

Dabba Kato comes out after Shane says Kato beat you up when you visited Raw Underground. KO tells Kato we are going to do this again and he slaps Kato. KO announces Braun Stroman and he comes to the ring. Shane gets in between Dabba and Braun and says save it for Underground. Aleister Black attacks KO. I am still not sure where they are going with KO and Black. But at least they are developing that storyline.

Thumbs up

Drew Promo with Charly

Charly asks him about his fractured friendship with Keith Lee. Drew says its business and not personal. He expects Lee to want to be champion and if he didn’t why be in the WWE. Retribution beating up some random wrestlers like Carillo. We find out the match is official with Retribution and Hurt Business. Decent backstage stuff.

Drew Mcintyre vs Keith Lee

We are getting this match for a second week in a row. And you knew this match was not going to have a clean winner. Randy Orton attacks Drew with a chair disqualifying Lee. Orton drives a chair into the fractured jaw of Mcintyre. Lee gets the kick to the skull from Orton. The match is secondary because of the DQ and the second straight week we are seeing Lee vs McIntyte. I can really see Lee turning heel.

Thumbs down 1

Randy Orton Promo

He says shame on everyone for thinking he would not be able to make the PPV. As usual a great promo by Orton.

Thumbs up

Asuka Promo

Asuka is asked who is the more worthy opponent for her. Billie Kay comes out to interrupt the interview. Peyton says Asuka should fight her. Asuka asks them if they are still friends. She accepts the challenge from Peyton.

Nothing special here.

Zelina Vega vs Mickie James

Zelina wins and will face Asuka at Clash and get murdered. Mickie is getting buried because her husband Nick Aldis is feuding with Bruce Pritchard. Personally, I would have rather seen Mickie James face Asuka at Clash and it should have been their first match together. But Bruce and Vince are petty. That would have been a great match. So Vega who I like is not really worthy of a title shot even though it will be a squash match.

Thumbs down 1

Hurt Business is beating up Retribution in the back.

Bianca Belair Promo

We see Bianca having a series of strength battles with a male and she beats him every time. Where is this going? Is she going to be fighting men? I am not sure where they are going with this. At least Bianca was on the show.

Thumbs up

R Truth Promo

Akira Tazawa on the beach with a ninja. Truth has his title and little Johnny. A shark is in the water. Truth loses little Jimmy and the belt only to get them back at the end. Truth is so funny it’s ridiculous.

Thumbs up

Apollo Crews vs Cedric

MVP good promo. Apollo not so good.

Apollo wins and I have no idea why. Cedric being in the Hurt Business should be going over Apollo. Shelton and Lashley distract Apollo and Ricochet on the ramp and they get beat down.

Raw Underground

Segment 1 Dolph vs Arturo Ruas. Dolph wins. Braun says he needs competition.

Segment 2 Moss vs Erik. Moss wins

Segment 3 Braun beats Daaba Kato and walks over him at the end.

So all of this was to build Braun back up as a monster. What about Daaba? Is he done now? Nothing really happens at Raw Underground. Nothing carries over to the main show. What is the purpose of this?

Thumbs down 1

Seth Rollins Promo

Seth says the Mysterio family has taunted him for a long time now. Seth says he has to tell the truth about the Mysterio family. He asks them to come to the ramp. Seth says Rey is not the father of Alayah and he has the proof. Rey tells his daughter she is too young and naïve. She walks out followed by the rest of the family one by one. We have seen this same angle years ago with Rey and Dominik. Eddie Guerrero was amazing in that angle. Seth Rollins isn’t Guerrero.

Shayna and Nia vignette followed by a match against Nattie and Shayna

With the Riott Squad on commentary, this was a squash match. Nia and Shayna go after Riott Squad after the match. RIott Squad gets away and Nia puts Lana through the table for a second straight week. Petty Bruce strikes again. Lana is going to get seriously hurt.

Thumbs down 1

Charly asks Drew how he is feeling. He says at the Clash he is going to best the piss out of Orton. As for tonight, he is going to pick a fight and he throws the ice pack on the ground.

Asuka vs Peyton Royce

Pretty good match. Peyton showed me a lot. Match went too long. Zelina attacked Asuka leading to the DQ. Zelina getting more heat for when she loses the match at the PPV. I get trying to establish Peyton but the match was way too long.

Thumbs down 1

Buddy with Alayah

Buddy apologizes to Alayah and says he is sorry if he did anything to hurt her and how this has gotten out of control.

Retribution vs Hurt Business

Slapjack TBar Mace come out with no entrance music

Lashley puts one member in a full nelson. T Bar I think hits Lashley from the outside and the ref calls for the bell. Why? Don’t we always see members of a tag team break up pinfalls by hitting the guy pinning their teammate? Retribution comes out and attacks Hurt Business. Drew leads a charge of boys from the back. One Big Melee. The ring empties and only Drew is left. Here comes Orton with an RKO.

So I guess we are not going to have a match with a real winner involving Retribution until Survivor Series. I still feel that the real leader has not been revealed yet. The only good thing about this whole segment was seeing Orton head into the Clash with legit heat.

Thumbs down 1

Outlook

I have five ups and nine downs and all of my ups are for promos. This show is tragic and we keep seeing the same matches over and over. At least AEW gives you new matchups every week. The three-hour show has to go. They have a hard enough time writing a two-hour show. Vince really needs to go because this is just getting hard to watch. Even the good things they have eventually get broken.

Smackdown Review 9-18

Smackdown is featuring a Samoan Street Fight between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso vs King Corban and Sheamus. Additionally, we will hear from Sasha Banks in response to Bayley’s attack on her both physically and verbally.

The Dirt Sheet

This is a waste of a segment. Miz who is very talented on the mic looks ridiculous. Morrison looks even worse. Plus this Otis angle is going nowhere. WWE should have never let someone like Otis win the Money In The Bank contract. The Mandy/Otis angle was losing steam so it has run its course. Unless Morrison starts flirting with her. But she was moved to Raw but is still talked about which never happens once a talent switches brands.

Otis who is very entertaining in his own right has played this part well. But this segment and the whole angle needs to go. Miz gets stripped down to his white boxers. Who thinks this is entertaining.

Thumbs down 1

Gran Metalik vs Cesaro

Why are these wrestlers still facing each other? Are the Lucha House Party getting a title shot? More lazy illogical booking. How do the faces get thrown out of ringside for not even interfering in the match? Please explain that to me. Then the heels win fair and square.

Yes this was a good match. What business did this do?

Thumbs down 1

Jey Uso Interview

More of the same from Jey Uso. Talking about when they were kids and how we are all grown up no. Corrected himself to say Roman told me then said Paul Heyman told me. Ok promo. We heard the same thing last week. I would have loved for Jey to say something different.

Thumbs down 1

Matt Riddle Bro Promo

Matt Riddle is very entertaining and building his character is important. But I am not sure this was the way to go. This whole series of definitions of Bro was something I would find funny if I was high as a kite. At least it was better than talking about his bare feet.

Thumbs up

A Moment Of Bliss/Nikki Cross Vs Lacey Evans

I actually felt this was a good segment. Nikki Cross was the guest and Alexa said I have to ask the tough questions. And she did. Give her credit. I sense new confidence in Alexa. Probably because they have put her into an angle with the Fiend. Nikki asks Alexa what is going in with her and the Fiend. Alexa is saying she does not fully understand what is going on with her.

Lacey Evans comes out and insults both Alexa and Nikki. Nikki attacks Lacey and it’s time for their match. Nikki got aggressive during the match and showed a mean streak. Nikki gets the win but I don’t buy her being able to beat Bayley. I just don’t see that ever happening.

After the match, Lacey mentions the Fiend to Alexa and she goes into the trance and gives Lacey a Sister Abigail. This is intriguing. I want to see Alexa have some interaction with Bray Wyatt in the funhouse.

Thumbs up

Paul Heyman Promo

They are really going all-in on Roman and I love it. It’s about time they turned him heel and they are building the match with Jey Uso brilliantly. It’s not often WWE and Brilliant are in the same sentence. But this is one of those times.

Thumbs up

Sasha Banks Interview

I did feel that Bayley was going to attack Sasha again which she did. I was just surprised they didn’t let the beat down go a little further. Sasha has to come back as an ultimate baby face and she has to come back in January for the Royal Rumble. By then there could be a decent amount of fans allowed in the arenas so Sasha will get the big babyface pop.

The problem is how do you keep Bayley as this strong heel until then. Clearly, she is not going to lose the belt. But we are talking about three months before January. Sasha is doing her best work trying to get sympathy. Of course, WWE could screw this up and have Sasha face Bayley at Hell in the Cell in October which would be a huge mistake.

Thumbs up

AJ Styles vs Sammy Zayn

As predicted by me last week I said there would be a three-way match at Clash between Styles, Zayn, and Jeff Hardy to determine the real Intercontinental Champion. So I knew there would be a screwy end to this match. Styles winning the match by pulling the tights after the referee caught Zayn doing it was a decent way to end the match, But I would not have had a pinfall winner to this match. I would have had a DQ finish.

Hardy comes out and uses a ladder to beat up Styles and Zayn so we know where this is going. A ladder match between these three at Clash will steal the show. That’s the way you are supposed to end a feud.

Thumbs up

Otis & Tucker

I am a fan of Otis, Miz, and Morrison but I hate this angle. Now there is a lawsuit filed by the Miz against Otis for emotional distress, destruction of personal property, and an unsafe working condition. This angle will get drawn out some more when Otis gets a lawyer involved. Who could that lawyer be? Maybe Abyss?

Nothing can save this angle.

Big E/Sheamus

Sheamus was told that his car was getting towed. The same guy he used to set up Big E set him up this time. I had a feeling that Big E was going to be outside. Sheamus runs away when he sees Big E coming after him. Then Big E beats up the security guard who set him up. A babyface beating up a security guard. I am not saying that Big E is turning heel but he definitely needed a new attitude being that he is a singles wrestler now.

Big E stuffs the security guard in the trunk of a car. I would love to see Big E completely break free of the New Day and turn heel. But I love this character change because it was so needed.

Thumbs up

Mysterious Woman

WWE tries to be slick. We all know who the woman is. Enough people recognized the tattoo’s that Carmella has matching the tattoo’s we saw on the woman last week. So this week we don’t see those body parts and the segment was a little shorter. Just come clean with this already. But I got a feeling that heel Carmella is going to get involved in the Bayley match at the Clash since they were tag partners in NXT. But Damn Carmella is so sexy and is better as a heel. But thumbs down for dragging this out when we know who it is.

Samoan Street FIght: Jey Uso & Roman Reigns vs King Corbin and Sheamus.

One of the reasons why I like this angle is because typically when one member of a tag team gets injured WWE forgets about the other member. So the fact that Jey Uso is getting a lot of TV time is a good thing. Then add in the family aspect with Roman and you have a storyline that writes itself if you let it. So this we are not kids any more dialogue works so well because Roman being the bigger one was probably the typical big brother who pushed around his little cousins.

So we are getting a true heel Roman by saying this belt has to stay with me which means he is willing to do whatever he needs to and this belt means more than his blood. Unfortunately, I have no desire to see this match again only to wait until the end to see the payoff. The King Corbin gimmick has to go. Physical match with some rough spots. But the ending is where all the fun happened.

Jey hits Corbin with the belt. Roman spears him then Uso hits a frog splash for the win. Roman looks very annoyed that Jey got the pin. Post-match Jey grabs the belt and starts to give it to Roman but then stares at it and looks like he is going to hold it up like he is the champion. Jey is really overdoing the celebration and Roman just smiles at him then they hug where Roman is talking to him. As Jey walks up the ramp we see Roman burn a hole in him with his stare while Heyman nods his head. I loved the ending of this match. I hated that this match actually happened.

Thumbs up

Outlook

It’s not often that I can say a WWE main roster show had more good than bad but this episode of Smackdown did just that. Smackdown is really doing some things right with the Roman Reigns heel turn, the Sasha/Bayley feud, Big E’s character turn tonight, and setting up the ladder match at Clash which will be a show-stealer.

However, we have the awful and going nowhere angle with Heavy Machinery and Miz/Morrison, the dreadful Tag Team division, and the underutilization of a handful of wrestlers. It makes you wonder how is the same person in charge of both Raw and Smackdown.

Monday Night Raw

WWE RAW Review 9-14

One Man’s Wrestling Opinion

WWE RAW Review 9-14

The show opens with a two-plus minute rehash of the Drew Mcintyre/Randy Orton feud. Way to long and almost got me to tune out the show.

Drew Mcintyre Promo

Decent promo by Drew. Very repetitive dialogue. Drew announces the match will be an Ambulance Match. Then Drew goes into this story about how Scottish Men wear nothing under their pants and how he felt that the crotch of his pants waS about to bust revealing his junk. What the hell did I just listen to?

Adam Pearce comes out and it looks like he is becoming the GM/Authority figure for both shows. I like that idea. He announces that Keith Lee will face Drew tonight and if Lee wins he would get a title match at The Clash if Orton is not cleared to wrestle.

Lee comes out to the ring and they stare each other down and shake hands but neither release the grip as the other tries to leave. This segment could have been better.

Thumbs down 1

Street Profits vs Cesaro/Nakamura

A non-title match with both brand’s tag team titles. Cesaro & Nakamura come to Raw to lose? Angelo Dawkins gets the win via a Frog Splash on Cesaro. The only member of the Street Profits who should be using the Frog Splash is Montez Ford. I am not sure what the purpose of this angle is. WWE’s tag team divisions are absolutely brutal across all brands. Please just merge the titles and be done with it. It does not matter how good a match is if there is no point to it.

Thumbs down 1

Lana & Angel Garza

Lana is complaining to Angel Garza about Micki James getting a title shot. I guess she thinks she deserves one. Garza is flirting with her. I want Garza to flirt with all the women to get them to help him out against future opponents. I think this is a great angle for him.

Zelena Vega comes out and says how can you leave Andrade in the ring to lose a match etc. Andrade and Garza start arguing. Vega storms out saying she can’t take this anymore. Garza and Andrade start brawling.

I like this segment but……… I think all three need to be on their own. If you believe the inside dirt then you know that McMahon likes Garza. Heyman loved Andrade. As for Vega, we see what she is up to later on in the night. I hope that WWE is not starting to have male and female teams to combat Kross and Scarlett when they get to the main roster. But we see this every week. Until I see them completely on their own then I won’t believe it.

Thumbs down 1

Hurt Business Promo Cedric vs Ricochet

Loving the Hurt Business. I love the entrance music. It starts off kind of like Jaws. Good promo too especially by Cedric Alexander. Apollo and Ricochet interrupt. God Ricochet has no personality and charisma. Neither does Apollo. This is what is holding them back.

Cedric goes over Ricochet which is the correct choice. Good match.

Thumbs up

Retribution Promo

Directly after the match, the lights go out and we see Retribution. Decent promo. God, there are like 15 of them. It’s time for this group to get in the ring or reveal who they are. I like the concept but they are dragging this out too long now. The lights go back on and we see the Hurt Business in the ring looking for Retribution.

Hurt Business With Adam Pierce

Adam Pierce yells at his security guards because there was another incident with Retribution. The Hurt Business comes by and says we can help you. Pearce says thanks for volunteering. MVP said we don’t volunteer. This is what we do. And you will be getting a bill from us. I am so digging The Hurt Business right now. They all look like they are having so much fun.

MVP is perfect to be the mouthpiece for Lashley, Cedric, and Shelton. Those guys are not great on the mic and they get to deliver a few lines and MVP does the rest. That’s how you get people over.

Thumbs up

Mickie James Vs Asuka

We see Mickie James say in a promo that this could be her last chance at gold. She says it again walking to the ring. The match was not good. I expect more from Mickie and Asuka. But Mickie looked very off. The ending was brutal. Who knows what really happened or what was supposed to happen. The referee stopped the match because he said Mickie could not continue. But as the week went on we heard a couple of different scenarios.

Some people feel that this is Bruce Pritchard giving payback to Mickie’s husband Nick Aldis for their feud. Let’s mess with Mickie as the WWE is known to do.  Anyway, this is not the way you treat a legendary performer in Mickie James.

After the match, Zelina Vega comes out and gets in Asuka’s face. Vega smacks Asuka and runs out of the ring. Why didn’t Asuka chase her? She just danced in the ring and it appears Asuka’a next title defense is against Zelina Vega who has wrestled like 2 or 3 matches in the last 7 months. So friggin tragic.

Another clueless booking decision by WWE. If you are giving out title shots to just anybody where the hell is Bianca Belair who has a victory over Vega. Shit, I would rather see Mandy Rose get a title shot. At least she has been wrestling and has some wins under her belt including Summer Slam where she had the best match I have seen her have.

Charly Caruso Interviews Keith Lee

I love Keith Lee. I like his look and he is so athletic for a man his size. But the only problem I have with him is that he is always smiling. Keith Lee should be booked like a beast. Lee says in this interview that he and Drew always knew they would have to face each other despite being friends. He says he will do anything he has to do to win the match and is that means targeting Drew’s injured jaw then so be it. Also, he does not like Drew interfering in his matches. Decent promo but the smiling really bothers me.

Thumbs down 1

Lashley vs Erik

MVP replaces Dolph Ziggler on commentary. Lashley wins in a squash match. Man, it’s got to be hard when your tag team partner gets injured and is going to be out for many months. Hopefully, they do something with Erik and not just let him waste away until Ivar returns. Nothing special in this match and I am happy Erik had something to do at least for this night. Lashley should have squashed him.  I think Erik needs to go back to NXT.

Thumbs up

KO Interview

KO is always a good promo and this was no different. He dropped a lot of truth bombs. He said Aleister Black sat in a room for a year and no one knocked on his door. Said he has no idea why Black is mad at him. As KO left Black was looking at him. I have no idea why this is even a feud.

Thumbs up

RAW Underground Segments

  1. Shane is by the Raw Underground door and Braun Stroman comes by and demands to be let into the Underground. Shane says tonight might be the best Raw Underground yet.
  2. Dolph Ziggler is fighting then Riddick Moss jumps in and starts fighting with Dolph. Braun gets in the ring and lays both out. Then asks for challengers.
  3. Titus asks for entrance into the Underground. Braun destroys him too.
  4. Braun still beating people up including Dolph and Moss for the third time. Dabba Kato gets in the ring and is ready to fight Braun. Shane gets in between the two and says we are saving this for next week.

Okay, so Dabba Kato was standing outside the ring for all three segments and didn’t think to challenge Braun until the end of the show. Ridiculous. What else can I say? I think this was worth a try but it is just not working out.

Thumbs down 1

Mandy Rose Traded To Raw

Boy, they are really trying to talk this up as part of an angle for Smackdown. And maybe it is. But Mandy was getting better and we have not seen her in the ring since Summer Slam. I don’t hate Mandy Rose. She is very easy on the eyes. I think she works hard. She is getting better. I liked the stuff with Sonya. But she should still be on Smackdown.

The female wrestlers on Raw are better than the females on Smackdown. In comparison, if you look at the top four of each show.

RAW-Asuka, Shayna, Bianca, Nia

Smackdown-Bayley, Sasha, Naomi, Nikki

It’s funny that Bianca and Naomi are not being used right now.

Dominik Mysterio vs Seth Rollins Steel Cage Match

We see another very long package rehashing this feud. This was too long.

We saw a promo with Seth and Buddy where Seth got mad at Buddy and told him to not go to ringside for the match tonight. The whole Mysterio family goes to ringside. Buddy shows up and gives Seth a kendo stick through the cage. Fast forward to the end where Buddy hits Seth with the cage door by accident. Seth recovers and curb stomps Dominik and gets the win.

After the match, Seth berates Buddy and beats him up for almost costing him the match. Seth starts to walk towards the back where he sees Rey’s wife Angie. Seth says to Angie “Hell of a job you did. I hope she turns out better.” Very funny line. Angie and Aalyah go towards the ring. Angie gets in the ring and Aalyah stops and touches Buddy to console him. Then she goes into the ring. So I guess we are getting more from the Mysterio family.

I am tired of seeing Dominik face Seth or Buddy. This has to stop. I think Dominik has a future but this program has to end. Maybe they take this feud right up until Seth goes out on Maternity leave. I can’t give this the thumbs up because I am tired of seeing Dominik face Seth.

Thumbs down 1

Drew Mcintyre Interview

Keith Lee interrupts the interview and said the only match I had with Orton that you did not interfere with I beat him. Predictably these two start brawling all over the back. I must say Keith Lee needs to throw better punches. I feel that something is missing with Lee. The sight of Keith Lee walking away reminds me of King Kong. Decent spot with WWE trying to build up the heat between these two guys. All of this Keith Lee stuff is being forced.

Thumbs down 1

KO vs Black

These two wrestlers are underutilized and that’s a shame. KO wins when the lights go out and Owens rolls up Black. WWE has to do better with talents like this. If your not going to push Black then send him back to NXT. It’s tragic to see this. We know KO will say things in promos that are truth bombs and hopefully, he does this again. But what good would it do?

Thumbs down 1

We see Drew and Lee still fighting in the back. WWE trying to once again show legit heat for a match that let’s face it neither one can afford to lose.

Riott Squad Vs Nattie/Lana

Hey let’s get the Riott Squad back together because we realize that the Women’s tag team division has no real teams. So why was this team broken up in the first place? Plus you broke up the Iiconics and yeah I know they are not great but they were an established team. Then and I know it’s part of a storyline you jam Shayna and Nia together to win the belts. Now, Shayna is a badass, and Nia is big so them losing to any of these teams is not believable unless the two fight among themselves.

Shayna and Nia are on commentary during the match. Riott Squad who is facing Shayna and Nia at Clash win the match quickly. Shayna storms the ring after the match. The Riott Squad leaves but Nattie gets taken out then Lana is fed to Nia to take a Samoan drop through a table. Riott Squad looks on in fear. And the burying of Lana starts. WWE is going to punish Lana for things her husband is doing after they released him. How petty. Typical WWE.

Thumbs down 1

Keith Lee vs Drew Mcintyre

I hate when the outcome of matches are predictable. It takes my interest out of the match very quickly. So this is in the bad column already. I am only watching to see what business is done at the end of the match. So if I was watching this on DVR I could safely fast forward to the ending. Which is the case with 75 percent of the matches on all of the shows AEW included.

Retribution interferes in this match. I swear there are like 15 of them. This is not even a stable anymore. It’s a mini promotion. Is WWE going to use this big of a number forever or will it eventually get smaller? Plus the leader has to be someone established. More on that later.

We hear the music for The Hurt Business and they appear on the top of the ramp all well dressed. I love this group and as stated before they are all having fun. So now 4 guys are holding their own against 15 people. I say people because who the hell knows if there are women out there and how many of them. Drew and Keith Lee jump from the ring to the outside taking out everyone and the show ends.

I don’t even know how to rate this because I liked the Hurt Business but everything else I didn’t.

Thumbs down 1

Outlook

WWE needs to do much better than this. I don’t know what to say anymore. This is discussed every week. I feel that something is missing with Keith Lee. The Seth Rollins/Dominik Mysterio feud needs to end. And it looks like Rey’s daughter is getting involved with Buddy. Seth is reportedly going to take some time off soon so will that mean we see more Dominik vs Buddy.

The Retribution angle needs to come to a head. Will they start to actually wrestle? Is there a leader and is it a member of the main roster or someone like CM Punk. It has dragged on for too long now. There is so much wrong with this show and it’s not the fault of the talent. Retribution needed to be done differently. I would have done it differently. I do like the concept.

This show needs to get better. Smackdown is a much better show and Raw needs to get up to speed.

WWE Women’s Evolution EP#22 Tag Team Tournament Continues, Woman In Black, Rhea decimates Becky, Charlotte Strikes Back and more

ALL FEMALE WEEKLY TV SHOW

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION # 22 September 5th

STEPHANIE OPENS THE SHOW

We see a video package of last week with the two women in black in the ring and Lacey Evans getting exposed as one of them. Stephanie McMahon is in the ring with Tamina.

Renee: All of us were confused about what happened last week with the women in black. Stephanie hopefully will explain what happened.

Paige: Everyone in the back will be waiting on her explanation.

Stephanie: During this past week I have been tweeted at, texted and called by many people looking for an explanation as to what happened last week on Women’s Evolution. Even my father Vincent Kennedy McMahon was curious about what happened. Everyone wants an explanation. Most of all the talent in the back.

Stephanie looking very remorseful.

Stephanie: The truth is (Stephanie now gets angry and yells) None of you deserve it. I don’t have to explain anything I do.

Paul Heyman comes out to the ring.

Heyman: Stephanie there you go again. Trying to get out of a situation you obviously created just to save face. Well, I am here to expose you as the fraud and the chew toy you really are.

Stephanie: Paul you have no business out here.

Heyman: Yes I do. Stephanie, how could there be two women in black? Stephanie was Lacey Evans the woman in black all along? Stephanie who is the other woman in black? These questions need to be answered tonight.

Stephanie: Paul whatever you feel you are entitled to you are not.

Heyman: My clients have been attacked on multiple occasions. We just want to deliver the payback on the right person before we take it out on everybody.

Stephanie: And what we have seen thus far is what?

Heyman looks confused.

Stephanie: How many times have the Horsewomen attacked people and ruined matches?

Heyman: It just dawned on me. You really don’t know who the other woman in black is. Do you?

Stephanie looks angrily at Heyman.

Heyman: Yeah you don’t know. So you did what your old man would do. Create your own woman in black to do your bidding for you. Tell you what I am going to do. My Horsewomen will confront Charlotte Flair at the end of this show. We will get the answers we need out of her. Just make sure her night is open and stays open. Just make sure she is protected and watched this whole night.

Stephanie: Why would I let you do that?

Heyman: Because there are a lot of women in the back who want a piece of the woman in black. That makes Lacey Evans who is one of your girls a marked woman tonight. Even you will not be able to protect her no matter what you admit to. You see Stephanie all of your actions are going to come back on you tenfold. Everyone thinks Lacey Evans is the woman in black. She will get slaughtered tonight unless you come clean.

Stephanie looks confused.

Heyman: If you want Charlotte to admit to anything promise her a title match. Oh, by the way, do you know if Asuka is healthy enough to compete at Clash of Champions?

Stephanie still looking confused.

Heyman: What did I tell you when this whole thing started? I told you to let me handle this. But you want to punish Charlotte. You want to punish Becky Lynch. And all of this is because you wanted to punish Ronda Rousey. Now, look at what has happened. My advice to you is to smarten up. Admit when your wrong and move on.

Stephanie: What do you want?

Heyman: The list is so long. But let’s start with the truth about Lacey Evans.

Stephanie: Ok Paul. Yes, I was using Lacey Evans as a way to flush out the woman in black. But she was only the woman in black for one week. And she got exposed.

Heyman: Why should any of us believe you.

Stephanie: I don’t care.

Heyman: Is Asuka going to wrestle at Clash Of Champions?

Stephanie: We will find out tonight.

Heyman: A lot of nonsense answers from you. But I will take what I can get.

Stephanie: If you want Charlotte Flair then you will get her tonight. Charlotte you have to answer to the woman in black questions tonight at the end of the show. If you reveal who the woman in black is then you will get a title shot.

Heyman: Now your talking. You are welcome to sit ringside and watch how a man handles this situation.

Heyman leaves the ring.

Renee: I don’t like this set up for Charlotte.

Paige: This could end ugly for Charlotte.

SKY PIRATES VS RIOTT SQUAD

STEPHANIE MCMAHON BACKSTAGE WITH NAOMI, EMBER MOON, AND ALEXA BLISS

Stephanie is backstage in her office talking on the phone when Ember Moon and Naomi are staring at her.

Stephanie: Let me call you back. Ember. Naomi. I know what your going to say.

Naomi: That’s funny. You used us as pawns. And I was attacked by the woman in black.

Ember: We are the tag team champions and were used by you. What are you going to do about that?

Naomi: Better yet what are we (Naomi points to her and Ember) going to do about that?

Stephanie: Let’s just calm down here. Do I need to remind you what the repercussions will be if either of you lay a hand on me?

Naomi: Make no mistake. We are not talking about you.

Alexa Bliss interrupts Naomi and Ember.

Alexa: Stephanie I need to talk to you about the TV title and this ridiculous decision you made.

Naomi: Hold on little sis. You need to step outside and let us finish our business with Stephanie.

Alexa: No one cares about either of you.

Ember: Little girl needs to shut her mouth before I send her home to the farm with her pig.

Alexa: My pig is prettier than you.

Naomi: Alexa get out of here right now.

Alexa: You know green is not a good color for you. I am a way bigger deal than either of you.

Stephanie: Stephanie yells. That’s it. All of you. Naomi, you will have a match with Lacey Evans tonight. I hope that makes you happy.

Naomi: It does for now.

Alexa: Stephanie forget these two losers. You better reverse that decision you made.

Stephanie: Alexa you made a mockery of a title that was created to give all the girls in the locker room a chance at the spotlight. My decision is final. But you are booked in a match tonight. It will be Alexa Bliss against Ember Moon.

Alexa looks scared. Ember Moon is all smiles.

Stephanie: Oh Alexa. That match is now.

Renee: I Love it. Alexa Bliss is finally going to get what she deserves.

Paige: Alexa’s big mouth finally got her into trouble.

Carmella: Charles Baymella is just starting up now. We know the opportunity that is in front of us hunnnyyyyy. That’s why we decided to get back together.

Bayley: That’s right. The competition in this division is picking up. We know how good the Sky Pirates are. But Mandy Rose and Sonya DeVille will not be overlooked.

Carmella: That’s right Bayley.

Charly: Does this mean both of you are going to be just tag team wrestlers?

Bayley: No. We are going to support each other. Everybody needs someone to watch their back.

Carmella: Plus we have a couple of scores to settle hunnnyyyyy. But right now we are focused on becoming the next women’s tag team champions.

Bayley: Oh yeah

Charly: Good luck tonight

KAYLA BRAXTON WITH ALEXA BLISS AND ZELINA VEGA

Kayla sees Alexa in the back and runs up to her.

Kayla: Alexa what happened out there tonight?

Alexa: You think that’s funny. I bet you took great pleasure in seeing Ember Moon beat me.

Kayla: Alexa I am just a journalist. I do what I am asked to do.

Alexa: That is run up to me with a microphone after I just lost a match.

Kayla: Well maybe if you treated people nice they would not laugh when you get bitch slapped like you just did tonight.

Alexa: I would love to get you in the ring.

Kayla: I am not getting in the ring with you. But I do know someone who is.

Alexa: What are you talking about?

Zelina Vega comes out.

Asuka comes out to the ring.

Paige: Asuka are you still suffering the effects of Becky Lynch’s attack?

We see Rhea Ripley looking at this interview on a monitor in the back.

Paige: They have been attacking each other.

Renee: Becky is hurt bad.

Paige: Yes she is.

Renee: Talking about getting hurt bad. Naomi wants to hurt Lacey bad.

Lacey is in the ring and Naomi comes running out. Naomi starts off hot. Lacey uses the referee as a shield and kicks Naomi in the process. Lacey has played on Naomi’s aggressiveness the whole match. Pulling her by the hair to take her down. Finally, Naomi takes over. Naomi kicks Lacey repeatedly in the chest. Then she gives her a split-legged jawbreaker. Naomi then gives Lacey a full nelson bomb.

Renee: Naomi wants to hurt Lacey now.

Naomi gives Lacey a running turnbuckle bulldog. Naomi whips Lacey off the ropes and gives her a rearview. Naomi puts Lacey in the Feel The glow and Lacey taps out.

Renee: Naomi was dominant tonight.

 

KAYLA BRAXTON UPDATE ON BECKY

Kayla: I am being told that Becky Lynch is heading to a hospital due to the injuries she sustained tonight at the hands of Rhea Ripley. I am heading to the hospital and will hopefully give an update before the show goes off the air.

 

CHARLY WITH CHARLOTTE FLAIR

Charly: Charlotte Flair you are about to head out to the ring to confront Paul Heyman and the Horsewoman. Do you really think this is a good idea?

Charlotte: Probably not. But look at what I have had to go through the last few weeks.

Charly: You will be in the ring alone with the Horsewomen and Paul Heyman.

Charlotte: The things you do to get a title shot.

Charly: You have been asked every week about the woman in black and you have had the same answer every week.

Charlotte: That’s right Charly and it will be the same answer tonight.

Charly: You are outnumbered 3 to 1. When you add in Paul Heyman and Stephanie McMahon at ringside are you worried about getting taken out?

Charlotte: I have had Stephanie McMahon trying to take me out since Wrestlemania. So Charly do I think something is going to happen tonight? I guarantee it.

Charlotte walks away.

Charly: Charlotte Flair could be walking right into a trap tonight.

 

HORSEWOMEN AND CHARLOTTE SEGMENT

Paul Heyman is in the ring with the Horsewomen.

Stephanie McMahon then comes out and gets in the ring.

Heyman: It’s about that time. It’s about that time for the world to finally find out who the woman in black is. It is about that time Charlotte Flair comes out and tells the whole world who the woman in black is. If not we are going to handle this Horsemen style. Charlotte I am quite sure you know what that means. Ric’s daughter get your ass out here.

Charlotte’s music hits and she comes out to the ring. She is hesitant to get in the ring.

Heyman: Come into the ring Charlotte. Don’t worry about them. If you answer the questions the right way then nothing will happen to you except you will get that title shot you crave so much.

Charlotte gets into the ring.

Heyman: Charlotte we don’t have to go down memory lane to see how many times the woman in black has appeared.

Charlotte: Paul my answer is going to be the same as it has always been. You didn’t believe me when I said I wasn’t the woman in black. Then someone appears as the woman in black when I was in the ring and I am still blamed. Then last week there are two women in the ring dressed in black. One was Lacey Evans (Charlotte looks at Stephanie) Stephanie admits it was all a plan. How do you know Stephanie is not behind the whole thing?

Heyman: Do you think I trust Stephanie McMahon? Do you think I trust you? I am here to tell you just admit to the whole world and you get your title shot.

Stephanie grabs the microphone and yells

Stephanie: Otherwise you will never get another title shot ever again.

Heyman backs her off.

Heyman: Stephanie I got this under control. Charlotte do you think I have these women here because you are the woman in black or this mysterious woman is helping you out?

Charlotte looks at Heyman with confusion.

Heyman: I told you. I told all of you from day one that we are here to avenge Ronda Rousey. We had a hit list with two names. Becky and Charlotte. It looks like someone beat us and took out Becky Lynch first. We will still collect when she gets back. But now we have you in this ring and you are cornered.

Charlotte: Nothing I say today was going to make any difference. This was all a set up wasn’t it.

Heyman smiles and shrugs his shoulders.

Charlotte looks at Stephanie.

Charlotte: Stephanie are you a part of this? I know you hate me. Probably because you wish you had the ability I had inside this ring. Who is running this division anyway?

Heyman: Get her ladies.

Renee: This was all a setup.

Paige: I am afraid for Charlotte tonight.

The Horsewomen attack Charlotte and are beating her down in the corner. Shayna Baszler is stomping all over Charlotte’s body while Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir are holding her down. Charlotte falls outside the ring. Jessamyn goes on the outside to get at Charlotte. Charlotte is on one knee next to the ring post. Jessamyn gets close to Charlotte. Charlotte then grabs her and pulls her into the ring post. Jessamyn goes down and Marina heads to the outside to go after Charlotte. Marina clotheslines Charlotte. Then she drives Charlotte’s back into the ring apron. Shayna is calling for Marina to bring her back into the ring. Sasha Banks appears out of nowhere and gives Shayna a Bank Stabber and rolls her into the Bank Statement.

Renee: Sasha Banks is here and she goes right after Shayna.

Marina who has a chair in her hand gets into the ring and hits Sasha with the chair. Charlotte gets up and gives Marina a kick to her face. Charlotte grabs the chair but Stephanie pulls it out of her hands. Charlotte is staring at Stephanie when Jessamyn gets back into the ring and spears Charlotte. Shayna picks up Sasha and drives her into the corner. Jessamyn and Marina start to double team Charlotte again. Naomi and Ember Moon run to the ring and go right after Jessamyn and Marina.

Renee: Here come the tag team champs

Paige: This is getting out of control.

Naomi and Marina are fighting on the outside of the ring. Inside the ring, Jessamyn hits Ember with a neck breaker. Jessamyn goes on the outside to help Marina. Sasha and Shayna roll outside the ring. Shayna whips Sasha into the guard rail and she goes down. Ember now goes on the outside to help Naomi. Shayna runs over and they are outnumbering the tag team champs. Sasha gets up and runs into the ring and does a suicide dive taking out everyone on the outside. Heyman and Stephanie start arguing with each other in the ring.

Renee: I want to see those two go at it.

Charlotte gets up and starts looking at Stephanie and Paul. They stop arguing and just look at Charlotte who is pissed off. Charlotte picks up the chair and threatens to swing it. Stephanie is saying to Charlotte if you hit me you will be fired. Heyman is yelling I am just an advocate. Then the lights go out.

Renee: What’s going on?

The lights go back on and the woman in black is in the ring.

Renee: The woman in black.

Paige: She is here.

Charlotte and the woman in black stare at each other. Charlotte throws the chair down and gets face to face with the woman in black. Then at the same time, Charlotte super kicks Heyman and the woman in black gives Stephanie a superkick. The lights go out. Then after they go back on Charlotte is standing in the ring and the woman in black is gone.

Renee: What just happened here.

Paige: I am not sure.

Renee: This was pure chaos

WWE Women’s Evolution EP20:Stephanie Strong Arms,Woman In Black,Rhea Targets Becky,Charlotte Snaps

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION # 20 August 22nd

STEPHANIE OPENS THE SHOW

The show opens up with a video of last week with the woman in black and how the show ended. Stephanie is in the ring with Rhea Ripley and Tamina and with a few security guards.

Renee: I have been waiting all week for this show. Maybe we will find out who the woman in black is.

Stephanie: I am in a really bad mood. That is probably because of what happened throughout last week’s show. I have some people I need to call out and I will handle this all at one time. But the biggest elephant in the room is the woman in black. I am confident this is getting resolved tonight. I am so confident this will get resolved tonight I scaled back my security squad. This is all that I have with me tonight. As I call out one by one the people who I need to deal with I must remind you that any attempt to put your hands on me will have dire consequences. Any attempt to fight with Rhea and Tamina will have dire consequences. What I mean by that is you will be fired. I have things to do tonight so let’s get on with it.

Renee: What does Stephanie have planned?

Paige: I am not sure.

Stephanie: Becky Lynch get your hot-headed ass out to my ring now.

Becky Lynch comes out to the ring and immediately tries to go after Rhea Ripley.

Stephanie: Becky you little hothead. Slow down. I told you no fighting until you hear what I have to say.

Becky: Say what you have to say so I can beat down that big dope.

Stephanie: You will get your chance to fight tonight. Chocolate Thunder the Women’s Tag Team Champions get down to my ring.

Naomi and Ember Moon come out to the ring.

Renee: What is Stephanie doing?

Paige: I don’t know.

Stephanie: Sasha Banks. The quitter. Come down to my ring.

Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring.

Stephanie: Last but not least Charlotte Flair aka The Woman in Black, get your ass out to my ring.

Charlotte comes out to the ring.

All the women are in the ring.

Stephanie: I am sure you are saying to yourself why am I in this ring? Well, I can tell you why. All of you have been making my life very difficult. For different reasons. I am so mad at all of you I have no idea where to start. Sasha Banks. You quit on this company. When you finally decided to come back what did you do? You demanded a title shot. You attacked the Raw Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler. You got your title shot and lost. Then you attacked her again last week. And you try to complain when she attacks you back.

Sasha: I only want what is fair

Stephanie: Shut up. Chocolate Thunder. I can’t count how many title shots I gave you until you finally won a title because that woman(Stephanie points to Charlotte) gave you the win. Then last week Ember you come to me and tell me you have the woman in black trapped in a room with Naomi watching the door and what happens. The woman in black just disappears.

Naomi: I swear she didn’t leave through that door.

Stephanie: Shut up. Can’t you two do anything right? Becky Lynch. You might have cost Rhea Ripley an opportunity at the Smackdown Women’s Championship when you attacked and injured Asuka. An opportunity she earned in the ring.

Becky: That’s my title.

Stephanie: Shut up. Asuka beat you fair and square at Summer Slam. And you can’t handle it. Charlotte Flair. Woooooo. Before I play this video do you have anything to say for yourself?

Charlotte: Stephanie I have told you before I am not the woman in black. That tape won’t prove anything.

Stephanie: You were warned.

Renee: Stephanie is going to show us the tape.

Paige: Charlotte is still denying she is the woman in black.

Stephanie: Roll it

We see the back of a woman who is tall like Charlotte. We see the woman in black take off the mask. We never see her face but all we see is her blond hair. The tape stops.

Stephanie: What do you have to say for yourself Charlotte?

Charlotte: That tape proves nothing. All you see is a woman with blond hair. How many women have blonde hair in that locker room?

Renee: That is a good point by Charlotte.

Stephanie: I see where this is going. None of you want to take responsibility for your own actions. So I will handle it. I am going to set up a series of matches for tonight. Not just any matches but special ones. Sasha Banks I will start with you. It appears you have a problem with the Horsewomen. And you want Shayna Baszler. No you are not going to face Shayna tonight. Instead tonight you will be facing Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir in a handicap match.

Sasha gets annoyed.

Renee: You know where the Horsewomen are there is a Shayna Baszler right by their side.

Stephanie: Becky Lynch. The Lass Kicker. You might have ruined a title match at Clash Of Champions. On a night where all champions will defend their titles in all of WWE my Smackdown Women’s Champion might not be able to defend her title because of you.

Becky smiles.

Stephanie: I see you want Rhea Ripley. You’re not going to get Rhea Ripley. Rhea would break you in half. Instead, I have something very special in store for you. Tonight Becky Lynch, The Man will face well someone who is not too happy about what you did to Asuka. In fact, two people wanted a piece of you. So I decided to let both of them have at you. Tonight it will be Becky Lynch vs Io Shirai and Kairi Sane. And. And since you like to injure people this match will be a submission match.

Becky looks around.

Paige: Becky will have to face Asuka’s best friends tonight.

Stephanie: Charlotte Flair. Woooooo. You will admit to me you are the woman in black. And if you don’t I will beat it out if you. Tonight you will face the Women’s Tag Team Champions Chocolate Thunder. (Stephanie looks at Naomi and Ember) Surely you can handle that.

Charlotte: Stephanie I find it funny you can’t control this locker room.

Stephanie: I was not done yet. I will continue to punish you until you admit who you are. Naomi and Ember. I am going to tell you who your opponents will be at Clash Of Champions. It will be the Chocolate Thunder vs The Horsewomen vs the winner of the tag team tournament that is starting today. A Triple Threat Match.

Stephanie: Have a great day.

Renee: Stephanie is vicious tonight.

Paige: She is definitely taking care of business.

Renee: As Stephanie just told us there is going to be a tag team tournament starting today where the winner will join The Horsewomen in challenging Chocolate Thunder for their Woman’s Tag Team Championship Belts.

Paige: We have three first-round matches next week.

Renee: It will be Bitch and Witch taking on Baymella.

Paige: Baymella will be appearing on A Moment Of Bliss tonight.

Renee: We have the Sky Pirates taking on Natalya and Nikki Cross.

Paige: We also have the IIconics taking on a tag team to be determined. But that is all scheduled for next week.

Renee: The one first-round match we have tonight is Team VBB against The Riott Squad.

Paige: The Riott Squad certainly has had their problems as of late.

Renee: It would be great to see them on the same page tonight. And that match is next.

TEAM VBB VS RIOTT SQUAD

The Riott Squad is back together and defeats Team VBB when Sarah Logan knocks Dana Brooke out of the ring and gives Lana a Kentucky Knee. Liv Morgan followed up with a Facebreaker to get the pin.

A MOMENT OF BLISS WITH CARMELLA AND BAYLEY

Alexa: My guests tonight are two friends reforming a tag team and will be facing Zelina Vega and myself next week in the tag team tournament. Zelina you have a lot of history with one of these ladies. Please welcome Baymella. Carmella and Bayley

Alexa: Welcome to my show.

Bayley: Listen here(Bayley comes in hot)

Carmella: Bayley remember what we talked about. We get to beat both their asses next week. So let them talk huuunnnyyy.

Alexa: Is that even English Carmella. I mean the two of you come on my show and start talking smack. We are the Women’s Evolution TV Champions and soon to be the Tag Team Champions

Bayley and Carmella start laughing.

Alexa: You find that funny. Carmella was it funny when we did what you couldn’t do and that was win this TV Title? Bayley you couldn’t beat Zelina Vega one on one. So what makes you think you can beat two superior wrestlers in Zelina and me.

Carmella and Bayley are laughing again.

Bayley: Alexa when was the last time you beat someone one on one without the bitches help?

Carmella: Zelina how was that beating I gave you two months ago? Are you sure you are ready to step back in the ring with me again huuunnnyyy?

Alexa: Zelina calm down. (Alexa holds her back) We will save this for next week.

Carmella: What’s wrong with right now?

Bayley: Alexa does not have the guts to fight tonight.

Alexa: No one in this ring tells me when I wrestle.

Carmella: I think Alexa is scared to fight tonight. What do you think?

Alexa yawns and Bayley slaps her in the face. Zelina lunges at Bayley when Carmella whacks her in the head with the microphone. Alexa goes to hit Carmella from behind but Bayley stares her down.

Carmella: Alexa if you are as bad as you think you are then tonight you will come out to the ring and have an open challenge. One of us will accept.

Bayley: Yeah. And we outsmarted you tonight. We are tired of all of the sneaky double-teaming you and Zelina do every match.

Carmella: So we got Stephanie McMahon to put it in writing for tonight that you have to appear alone. Zelina is not allowed to be in your corner.

Alexa and Zelina are getting mad and throwing the chairs around.

Carmella: So Alexa hunnnyyy get ready.

Carmella blows her a kiss.

Renee: Wow Alexa is in trouble tonight.

Paige: I like this decision by Stephanie.

IICONICS VS JOBBERS

IIconics beat jobbers in two minutes. Peyton Royce and Billie Kay grab mics.

Billie: Peyton don’t you find it weird that we don’t know our opponents yet and everyone else does.

Peyton: Billie not at all. No one wants to face us because they know it is going to be a loss.

Billie: That’s right. We will beat any team just like we beat the two losers here tonight.

Peyton: Then we will regain our Tag Team Titles.

Peyton and Billie: Because we are ……

We hear a voice and on the titan tron screen we see Mandy Rose.

Mandy: ummm excuse me, Peyton and Billie.

Peyton: What do you want Mandy?

Mandy: I couldn’t help overhearing how you are going to beat your opponents next week in the tag team tournament.

Billie: That’s right. No one wants to face us.

Peyton: Mandy your not part of a team because no one wants you.

Mandy: I guess Stephanie McMahon didn’t tell you two.

Billie: Tell us what?

Mandy: who your opponents will be next week.

Peyton: (Looks at Billie) Did you see Stephanie before.

Billie: (Looks at Peyton) No. Did you see her?

Peyton: You know what Mandy it does not matter who our opponents are.

The camera gets wide

Sonya: Sonya Deville.

Renee: Fire and Desire are back together!!!

Paige: I love to see this.

Mandy: And IIconics just to prove Fire and Desire are unified. Take a look at this.

Sonya: See you next week.

The IIconics are upset in the ring.

STEPHANIE AND CHARLOTTE IN THE BACK

Charlotte is seen getting ready for her match tonight.

Stephanie: Charlotte Flair. Wooooo. Why are you making this hard on yourself?

Charlotte: I am not the woman in black.

Paul Heyman walks by.

Heyman: Stephanie. Bravo. I must commend you for the matches you put on tonight. But I can’t say I am happy my Horsewomen have to fight in a triple threat tag team match at Clash of Champions to get back our tag team titles. But we will prevail.

Stephanie: I am so glad you approve Paul.

Heyman: Hi Ric’s daughter. (Heyman smiles) Are you enjoying yourself? Looks like you are in a corner now. HaHaHaHa.

Charlotte: I am getting tired of being blamed for everything. Stephanie. Paul. I am putting all of you on warning. I am not responsible for my actions anymore.

Stephanie: Is that right?

Charlotte: You are blaming me for everything bad that has been happening. I might as well do bad things.

Heyman: Charlotte if you don’t admit that you are the woman in black then the Horsewomen will not be responsible for what we are going to do to you. That is not a warning. It’s a spoiler.

Stephanie: Here is another spoiler for you Charlotte. Tonight’s match is a no disqualification match.

Renee: Charlotte is in trouble now.

Paige: What does she mean bad things?

Renee: I guess we have to wait and see.

ALEXA AND ZELINA BACKSTAGE

Alexa and Zelina are talking about something.

Zelina: Are you sure this will work?

Renee: What is that witch up to now.

TV TITLE CHAMPIONSHIP OPEN CHALLENGE ALEXA BLISS

Alexa Bliss makes her way out to the ring.

Renee: I can’t wait to see Alexa have to face either Carmella or Bayley one on one.

Alexa grabs a mic and announces the open challenge is now officially on.

The crowd is waiting for someone to come out when we hear Zelina Vega’s music play and she comes sprinting out to the ring. Alexa immediately lays down in the ring on her back. We see Carmella and Bayley sprinting to the ring. Zelina yells to the referee to ring the bell. Zelina gets on top of Alexa and the ref who looks confused counts to three. Carmella and Bayley get into the ring and Alexa and Zelina roll out of the ring and are laughing. Alexa is pointing to her head to say I am smart. Zelina is making the L with her fingers.

Paige: I have to say that was brilliant by Alexa and Zelina.

Renee: Alexa Bliss is a witch.

As Alexa and Zelina are backpedaling up the ramp we see Charlotte Flair come up from behind and she superkicks Zelina in the head. Alexa now looks at Charlotte and starts to back off the other way.

KAYLA BRAXTON BACKSTAGE WITH SASHA BANKS

Kayla: I am here with Sasha Banks. Sasha you are about to face Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir in a handicap match. Shayna Baszler will be at ringside. What is going through your mind?

Sasha: Survival. This is going to wind up being a three vs one. The Horsewomen won’t care about winning this match. And neither will I.

Kayla: What does that mean?

Sasha walks away.

Renee: Sasha is really up against it tonight.

Paige: There are three women who are up against it tonight.

RHEA RIPLEY AND SHAYNA BASZLER IN THE BACK

Rhea Ripley goes up to Shayna Baszler.

Shayna: I hear that you might want to waste your title shot on me if Asuka can’t fight at the Clash Of Champions.

Rhea: Waste my title shot.

Shayna: You don’t really think you’re good enough to beat me.

Rhea: Maybe I should have challenged you all along instead of Asuka.

Shayna: Nah I think you made the right choice. That’s if you want to hold any gold in this company.

Rhea: Don’t write checks your ass can’t cash.

Shayna: I only deal with cash.

Rhea: Someday some time we have unfinished business to resolve.

Shayna: Are you sure you want to get in front of this train.

BITCH & WITCH BACKSTAGE

Zelina: What the hell happened out there?

Alexa: I need to talk to Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie walks by

Alexa: Stephanie did you see what happened out there tonight. We want Charlotte in a handicap match.

Zelina: And we want…

Stephanie: Shut up you two. I have seen you make a mockery of this title for the last time. I told you, Alexa, that Zelina was to not get involved. But you just did whatever you wanted to do. And now so will I.

Alexa: What does that mean?

Stephanie: Since Zelina pinned you in the middle of that ring that now makes her the sole owner of that TV Title.

Alexa: What?

Stephanie: And that’s not all. The days of your dual championship team are over. Alexa if you want that title back you will have to beat Zelina one on one. Good luck next week.

Alexa and Zelina just look at each other.

Renee: I Like that decision by Stephanie.

Paige: Alexa picked the wrong week to anger Stephanie.

CHARLY CARUSO WITH BECKY LYNCH

Charly: Becky you have been put into a submission match against the Sky Pirates. As you know they are best friends with Asuka.

Becky: Hang on Charly. Stephanie McMahon has it in for me. That is clear as day. I would have slapped the head off her shoulders if I thought I wasn’t going to get fired. Tonight I got these two Japanese dopes. The Sky Pirates. I mean the Sky Planks. I will take on two women, three women, two men. I don’t care anymore.

Charly: But you did attack Asuka last week for no reason.

Becky: I do have a reason. She has my title and I won’t rest until I get my title back.

Charly: What about Rhea Ripley?

Becky: Rhea Ripley. You got involved in my business. I owe you an ass-kicking. Stephanie won’t let me get you in a match. But I will collect real soon.

Paige: Becky Lynch is still pretty hot right now.

Renee: I want to see Rhea vs Becky in the ring very soon.

BECKY LYNCH VS SKY PIRATES

Becky Lynch comes to the ring first followed by the Sky Pirates.

Renee: This is a submission match and there are no pinfalls allowed in this match. That means by definition it is a no disqualification match.

Paige: I don’t like the sound of this match.

Kairi and Io both attack Becky Lynch. They start to work on Becky’s arm.

Renee: This is the break Becky needed.

All three women are laying on the outside. Io and Becky start to get up. Becky is up first and pushes Io headfirst into the steel ring post. Becky rolls into the ring and is trying to get the feeling back in her arm. From behind Rhea Ripley attacks Becky with a full nelson slam.

Rhea gives her a riptide. Io dives off the top turnbuckle and gives Rhea a clothesline. Rhea goes down. Io goes off the ropes and hits a double foot stomp on Rhea.

The referee rules this a no contest.

Renee: Rhea Ripley is a monster.

Paige: Becky Lynch took a lot of punishment tonight.

Renee: Becky Lynch vs Rhea Ripley is inevitable.

CHARLY CARUSO WITH CHARLOTTE FLAIR

Charly: Charlotte Flair. Can I get a word with you before your match tonight?

Charlotte: What do you want.

Charly: You attacked four women tonight…

Charlotte: And I am about to attack two more.

Charly: I don’t understand.

Charlotte: Have you seen what has already happened tonight? I am fed up with this division. I am fed up with Stephanie McMahon. I am fed up with Paul Heyman. If I have to I will take on everyone in this locker room. Stephanie, you have woken up something deep inside of me. I am not responsible for my actions.

Charlotte walks away.

Renee: Charlotte has reached a dark place.

CHOCOLATE THUNDER VS CHARLOTTE FLAIR

Naomi and Ember Moon hit the ring first. Then Charlotte comes to the ring with a chair.

Paige: Stephanie made this a no disqualification match

Renee: That means Charlotte is free to use that chair.

Charlotte enters the ring swinging the chair around chasing both Naomi and Ember out of the ring.

Renee: This is a no disqualification match and that means Naomi and Ember can both be in the ring at the same time.

Charlotte is daring Ember and Naomi to enter the ring while she is swinging a chair. Ember gets into the ring and Charlotte hits her in the midsection with the chair. Ember falls to the ring apron. Naomi comes from behind with a chair and as she is about to hit Charlotte with the chair. But Charlotte sees her and we have a standoff with the chairs.

Ember picks up Charlotte and whips her across the ring to Naomi who gives her a roundhouse kick to her face. Charlotte goes down. Naomi and Ember now double team Charlotte for a few minutes. Yelling at Charlotte in between moves. Naomi gives Charlotte a Rear View. Ember gives her an eclipse. But they are not trying to pin her.

Renee: This is going to be dangerous for Charlotte.

Paige: Charlotte s tough but she is enduring a lot of punishment.

Naomi yells at Charlotte. “Get up. Get up and fight.” Naomi and Ember are waiting for Charlotte to get up and fight. Charlotte staggers to her feet and slumps into the corner. Ember charges at Charlotte who sidesteps her and Ember crashes into the ring post. Naomi now charges at Charlotte who hits her with the Queen’s boot. Charlotte who is still dazed drops to a knee. Charlotte gets up and kicks Ember out of the ring. Naomi now gets to her feet and stares at Charlotte. Then the lights go out.

Renee: What is happening?

The lights go on and there is the woman in black. We see her swinging a chair at Naomi when the lights go out again.

Paige: What is going on?

The lights go back on and we see Naomi laying in the middle of the ring and the woman in black is not around. Charlotte is looking around confused. Charlotte covers Naomi and gets the win. Charlotte still looking confused rolls out of the ring and looks under the ring.

Renee: Look at Charlotte. She is confused. She is looking for the woman in black.

Stephanie comes out on the ramp and stares at Charlotte.

Renee: Stephanie does not know what to say.

Paige: So who is the woman in black?

Stephanie: I want to find this woman in black tonight. You guys keep telling me you don’t see her but she shows up every night and I am sick of it.

Stephanie starts to get mad.

Stephanie: I want a guard posted in every room of this arena. I want a guard posted in every corner of this arena. I want a guard stationed under the ring. I want a guard at every entrance and exit of this arena. I want security cameras installed everywhere. I want the woman in black delivered to me tonight. I am not going to let another night get ruined by this woman. Now get the hell out of my office.

Stephanie looks at one security guard.

Stephanie: But you stay.

Stephanie gets in his face.

Stephanie: Find me Charlotte Flair NOW.

Renee: Welcome to Women’s Evolution. We had a wild night at Summer Slam and it looks like it has spilled into tonight’s show.

Paige: Yes it has Renee. Stephanie McMahon is apparently tired of this mysterious woman in black and it looks like it might come to a conclusion tonight.

Renee: But to start things off we have Bayley facing Sarah Logan.

Paige: This is a match made as a result of what happened last week when Bayley was challenging Zelina Vega for the TV Title.

Renee: Sarah Logan got involved to prevent Alexa Bliss from interfering and she could have cost Bayley the TV Title.

BAYLEY VS SARAH LOGAN

Bayley and Sarah are having a good 5-minute match when Alexa and Zelina come to ringside. Alexa has her coffee with her.

Renee: What are they doing here?

Alexa hits Sarah from behind with the brass knuckles. Sarah is out. Bayley gets up and Alexa and hits her with the brass knuckles from behind. She goes down. Zelina gets off the apron and the referee turns around and sees both wrestlers down. So he starts to count out both wrestlers.

HORSEWOMEN INTERVIEW IN RING WITH CHARLY CARUSO

Charly: I would like to introduce my guests for this interview Paul Heyman and the Horsewomen.

Outcomes Heyman and the Horsewomen.

Charly: Paul I am sure you have a lot to say after what happened at Summer Slam.

Heyman cuts off Charly

Heyman: Charly I got it from here. Everyone saw what happened at Summer Slam. Everyone saw how my girls Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke got screwed out of their WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. How convenient the lights go out and this mysterious woman in black appears ah hem Charlotte Flair and hits Marina with a pipe causing her to get pinned.

Charly: Paul how are you so sure it was Charlotte Flair?

Heyman: Charly you’re a sweet kid but for now shut up. Stephanie McMahon was supposed to handle this by now. Instead world title matches are getting determined because of this woman interfering and then disappearing. Luckily for Charlotte Flair the people I gave that pipe to could not find a fingerprint. So now the chew toy wants this woman found tonight. I wonder what has lit a fire under her fat ass. Could it be I spoke to the board of directors about this? Make no mistake this is not just about the Horsewomen. This woman has been doing this for over a month and we are all sick of it.

Stephanie’s music hits. And out comes Stephanie McMahon to the ring.

Stephanie: Paul I understand you are angry.

Heyman: Angry would be one way to put it.

Stephanie: I am doing everything I can to find this woman in black.

Heyman: It’s not enough chew toy. We are now going to do things our way.

Stephanie: What does that mean? I still run this show.

Heyman: For now.

Stephanie: You think you have pull with the Board Of Directors? You do understand that not only my father is on that board but my husband and my brother.

Heyman: What has been happening each and every week is a joke and all of us are not going to stand for it anymore. Not just the women in this ring. But all the women in the back too.

Stephanie: I am confident this will be resolved very soon.

Heyman: Sure you are. And where the hell is Charlotte Flair. Is she in the building tonight?

Stephanie: I have people looking for her.

Heyman: You’re a joke. This is how you handle this.

Heyman looks right into the camera

Heyman: Charlotte Flair get your ass out here right now. If you don’t the women in this ring will hunt you down like a dog and drag you into this ring.

Stephanie: Is that really going to work?

Charlotte’s music hits and she comes out to the ramp.

Heyman: There she is. Ric’s daughter. Why don’t you come into the ring?

Stephanie: Charlotte you need to answer questions. The finger is being pointed at you.

Charlotte looks around.

Stephanie: Whatever you are doing it needs to stop. Because trust me. This will not end well for you. So are you the woman in black?

Charlotte looks around and takes a deep breath.

Charlotte: Stephanie. Paul Heyman. Both of you have an agenda against me. Stephanie, I did your bidding for you and took out Ronda Rousey on the first episode of this TV show. I was promised something I never got.

Heyman looks at Stephanie

Stephanie: Nothing is ever promised.

Charlotte: Whatever Stephanie. You know I was promised a title shot. I never got that title shot. What did I get? I get put into handicap matches against two wrestlers. I had to win a Gauntlet match just to save my career and get into the Money In The Bank match. I was forced to face mystery opponents such as Rhea Ripley and Shayna Baszler.

Heyman is laughing.

Charlotte: And you Paul. You have had it in for me ever since your girl Ronda was put on the shelf and ran away. Maybe you are still mad because you could never get over my father. So if anyone should be mad it’s me.

Stephanie: Charlotte I don’t know what you think you are deserved. But this is just business. Good business.

Charlotte: Business huh. I am demanding a title match and I don’t care who it is against. Sasha Banks comes back from walking out of the company and gets a title shot immediately. Naomi and Ember Moon have received a title shot at the last three Pay Per Views. And I get nothing.

Stephanie: You still haven’t answered the question. Are you the woman in black.

Charlotte: I was not in the arena for Summer Slam.

Heyman: That’s not an answer.

Charlotte: I am not the woman in black.

Heyman and Stephanie whisper something to each other and both smile.

Stephanie: Charlotte. You want a title shot. Is that what you want?

Charlotte: I want what is owed to me.

Stephanie: Nothing is owed to you. I can’t just give you a title match. You haven’t done anything in this ring to earn a title shot. But tell you what I am going to do. I am going to give you the opportunity to earn a title shot.

Charlotte: Earn it?

Stephanie: Yes. I can set up a series of matches and you have to win them all. Then you will get a title shot.

Charlotte: I want what is owed to me.

Heyman yells

Heyman: Then admit you are the woman in black and Shayna Baszler will gladly put up her title right now against you.

Stephanie: The choice is yours.

Charlotte looked down to the ground and was about to say something when from behind Sonya DeVille hits her with a chair knocking her to the ground.

Heyman is laughing.

Stephanie: Charlotte. On second thought I am going to catch that woman in black on my own. I would rather you earn it in this ring. Oh, and your first match is tonight against Sonya Deville.

Renee: Oh my. Charlotte is really in for it now.

Paige: Is she the woman in black?

Renee: I don’t know but Stephanie McMahon is not playing around anymore.

Paige: Last week Charlotte attacked both Sonya and Mandy Rose as they were about to reconcile. So there is bad blood already. What a night this is shaping up to be.

Renee: We still have to hear from Asuka on her win last night and her injury status. Io Shirai had a war with Rhea Ripley at Summer Slam. After falling short what is next for the Sky Pirates.

Paige: We also have an interview with the new Women’s Tag Team Champions Naomi and Ember Moon regarding the appearance of the woman in black during their match.

Renee: Also a special Moment Of Bliss with Mandy Rose. That should be good.

NATALYA & NIKKI CROSS VS JOBBERS

Natalya and Nikki Cross win in two minutes.

STEPHANIE IN RING WITH RHEA RIPLEY

Renee: Stephanie is out in the ring with the newly crowned Queen Rhea Ripley.

Paige: Stephanie has been very busy tonight.

Stephanie:  I told you all. I knew it the first time I saw her. I told you this woman Rhea Ripley will be a star. At Summer Slam she proved it. She proved it by becoming the very first Queen of the Ring. Queen Rhea has defeated in her brief time here at Women’s Evolution two former champions in Charlotte and Bayley. She has defeated two women who at one time have been one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions in Jessamyn Duke and Ember Moon. And finally, Io Shirai who fought her heart out at Summer Slam but just wasn’t good enough to become a Queen.

Renee: I hate to say it but Stephanie is right.

Paige: Rhea has been so impressive since her debut.

Stephanie: So Queen Rhea you now get to pick who and when you get your title shot against. Could it be Shayna Baszler? Could it be against Asuka? Could it be tonight? Could it be next week? Or could it be at Clash Of Champions?

Stephanie looks at Rhea who has a microphone.

Rhea: Thanks, Stephanie. Damn this is a tough choice. Could I have both? I mean I know I can defend both titles at the same time unlike someone else.

Renee: Rhea takes a shot at The Man.

Stephanie: One title at a time Queen. One title at a time.

Rhea: Since I don’t have respect for anyone else in this division it does not matter who I pick. I want both those belts. So the when will be at Clash Of Champions. And the who will be Asuka.

Renee: Asuka has a hurt arm. Come on Rhea pick Shayna.

Rhea: Shayna Baszler you are not off the hook. We have unfinished business to take care of. I am picking Asuka because she didn’t have the guts to win that belt fairly. She beat Becky Lynch after she won a Triple Threat Ladder match. Asuka have the balls to face someone who is ready for you. I saw your match last night Asuka. I saw The Man(Rhea laughs) work your arm over. That is why I am going to let you heal up and challenge you at Clash Of Champions. And on that night I will bring back prestige and royalty to this belt. I will do what The Man couldn’t do.

Becky’s music hits.

Renee: You knew that was coming.

Paige: Rhea basically called out Becky

Becky: That’s funny Rhea. Or Queen dope. But I had Asuka beat and she got lucky. And you got lucky cause I would have beat your ass you plank.

Stephanie: Becky your always coming out to steal someone’s moment. Just because you couldn’t get the job done.

Becky: That’s funny. That’s funny. I softened up Asuka for the Queen Dope.

Rhea cuts her off

Rhea: Becky I seem to remember you having two belts at one time and now you have none. Maybe you are not as good as you think you are. And softening up Asuka. You couldn’t get the job done.

Stephanie: Becky I hope your not out here asking for another rematch? You had your chance and you couldn’t get the job done.

Becky: Stephanie it’s no secret you have been against me since day one. You like to promise things to people and never follow through. The fact that you gave that quitter Sasha Banks a title shot right away tells me all I need to know about you. Asuka stole my Smackdown Women’s Championship and also robbed me of the Queen Of The Ring.

Rhea: Robbed you? What makes you think you can beat me?

Stephanie: If memory serves right you cost Asuka her match first. If memory serves right you just had a rematch against Asuka and failed again. What do you think you deserve?

Becky: I want a rematch with Asuka.

Sasha Banks music plays and she hits the ring.

Renee: Here comes the boss.

Sasha: Raggedy Ann. Look at the hand.

Sasha puts her hand in Becky’s face to stop.

Sasha: If anyone deserves a rematch it is me. The Horsewomen got involved in my match. A match I was about to win. Becky, I seem to recall you lost fair and square to a better wrestler.

Becky: You’re a quitter

Sasha: And your overrated. Your fifteen minutes are up.

Becky: What did you say to me you dope.

Sasha: You are overrated. The Man. Please. I am the Boss.

Sasha and Becky are right in each other’s face.

Stephanie: No I am the Boss. And as the boss, I have an idea. Tonight in that very ring in the main event it will be “The Boss” Sasha Banks against “The Man” Becky Lynch.

Renee: What a huge main event.

Paige: Stephanie is not playing around tonight.

Renee: Coming up next is a Moment Of Bliss with Mandy Rose. This should be interesting.

Paige: The last couple of months have been so emotional for Mandy Rose.

A MOMENT OF BLISS WITH MANDY ROSE

Mandy Rose is with Zelina Vega in the ring for A Moment Of Bliss.

Alexa: Welcome to A Moment of Bliss. My guest tonight is someone who has been having a rough couple of months and I was a little hesitant to bring that drama on my show but that’s what I do. I handle the tough assignments. Please welcome Mandy Rose.

Mandy Rose’s music hits. Mandy gets in the ring

Renee: Drama huh. That witch Alexa loves to stir the pot.

Alexa: Mandy Rose. Where do I start? First of all. Even though Zelena and I are a tag team. Remember it’s for wrestling purposes. We dig the guys.

Renee: Alexa is such a witch.

Mandy: If you are just going to insult me then why did you bring me out here.

Alexa: You and Sonya traveled the roads together. Maybe you aren’t getting any and think you have a shot here.

Mandy gets mad and goes in Alexa’s face. Zelina gets up and stares at Mandy.

Alexa: Mandy I am not going to pretend that I don’t see the drama you are having with Sonya. When you come on this show I talk facts.

Mandy: You want facts, Alexa. You’re a bitch.

Alexa: Actually Zelina is the bitch. But we can get off the subject of you and your girlfriend. You’re a really bad wrestler. I mean Sonya made you tap out. She is your lover and she had no compassion for you. Then you got jealous and cost her this TV Title that I now have.

Zelina: We have.

Alexa rolls her eyes.

Alexa: Sorry we have. Then you wanted to get in Sonya’s good graces by beating Bayley and she destroyed you. Then Charlotte. You really went out of your league to impress your lover. Now because of you, Sonya is facing an angry Charlotte Flair tonight. Some girlfriend you are.

Mandy: At least I fight my own battles and don’t hide behind this piece of trash.

Zelina goes after Mandy but Alexa holds her back.

Alexa: Mandy you are going to write a check you ass can’t cash. Look around. Sonya is not here. Charlotte is going to eliminate her tonight. Even as screwed up that loser Charlotte is she can still beat up your girl toy. Are you sure you want to pick a fight you can’t win?

Mandy: You will never fight fair. I saw what you did earlier tonight when Bayley was facing Sarah Logan. But tonight. Tonight you don’t need to have an open challenge for the TV Title. I accept. But only if you fight me and not Zelina.

Alexa: Trying to win the belt Sonya couldn’t win.

Mandy: Are you afraid to face me.

Alexa looks at Zelina

Alexa: Is she kidding me?

Zelina: If you want it she is all yours.

Alexa: I accept.

Mandy: Then I say we have this match right now.

Mandy walks towards the ring.

Renee: Go for it Mandy.

Zelina and Alexa are arguing on the ramp.

CHARLY CARUSO BACKSTAGE WITH CHARLOTTE FLAIR

Charly: Charlotte what are your thoughts about what is going on around here?

Charlotte: My thoughts Charly. I get blamed for everything that happens around here. I am the one who has to jump through hoops to get opportunities. I am being accused of being the woman in black when I am not. Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman have it in for me and I have no one to watch my back. How do you think I feel?

Charly: But the Dark Queen?

Charlotte: Yeah. I know I said that.

Charlotte gets really serious and starts talking very loudly.

Charlotte: But it’s not me. Maybe it should be. Maybe it’s time I take control. Maybe it’s time I kick some ass around here and take no prisoners. But Sonya DeVille. Are you sure you know what you are doing? You just unlocked the beast. I wouldn’t want to be you tonight.

Charlotte walks away.

Paige: Charlotte might have just gone over the edge.

This is the third straight PPV where they are getting title shots. Does anyone even realize how many other deserving superstars who have not appeared on the last two PPV’s? Charlotte Flair. Bayley.

You have had a lot of great matches. But come Summer Slam you will be in the ring with an animal. You have never faced the likes of Shayna Baszler before. Sasha put it this way. Shayna is Ronda Rousey times two. And the Queen Of Spades is very angry right now.

Kayla: Speaking of anger. What are your thoughts on the happenings in the backstage the last few weeks?
