Smack Down Live

Daniel Bryan to face Jeff Hardy and the winner go on to face Samoa Joe. This was supposed to be against Big Cass but he is being punished for going off script a few weeks ago when he went after Daniel. rumour has it that he might have re injured the same knee he just had replaced but what I am reading is that it is just story line related. Cass is not medically cleared to compete tonight.

The Miz opening the show tonight, waiting on the New Day to arrive and share who is going in the Men’s Money in the Bank.

Miz said he could beat any member of the New Day, any day of the week. Paige stopped Miz in the back and told him to turn around and go back out, he had a match. . now.

Big E vs Miz — since getting rid of The Miztourage Miz is getting back to showing how good he really his, I don’t like the character but I have to admit how good he is. The Bar out and going after The New Day. Thanks to the distraction, Miz gets the win with an assist from The Bar (shut up Corey — can you tell I don’t like Corey much)

Lana vs Billie Kay for a spot in the ladies M.I.T.B — Aiden English is out at the ring with Lana, calling for Lana day. Hehehe. Lana actually got the win all on her own. (been reading that Lana has been having a hard time picking up things in the ring, you can see she is still with the basics but she is holding her own.

Cien Almas with Selena Vega ( boy she can be a  bitch at the ring) vs a local. this wont last long.

A.J Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura in the ring with Renee to hear what Shinsuke decided for Money in the Bank. Shinsuke chose a Last Man Standing match.

The Usos vs Anderson/Gallows for the #1 contender to face The Bludgeon Brothers at M.I.T.B. Loving the Usos speed, In my opinion they are the best at cutting the ring in half. Gallows/Anderson with the tag team opportunity. It was physical but a really good match.

Naomi vs Sonya Deville for a M.I.T.B spot. It was a good match but Naomi with a new pinning move getting the win.

Jeff Hardy vs Daniel Bryan for the right to face Samoa Joe to make it to the M.I.T.B. It was a great solid match between Jeff and Daniel both flying as needed but it was Jeff who tapped out to Daniel in the end. Daniel to face Samoa Joe for the right to go to M.I.T.B

RAW live in Albany New York.

Nia Jax and Rhonda Rousey will sign the contract for their match at Money in the Banks. It should be a great match, I don’t think the title will change hands. I have read that it wont be until Wrestlemania before Rhonda would get the title.

Kurt in the ring with a major announcement. Kurt went to announce a fatal four-way for the Women’s Money in the bank when Stephanie walked out. Steph will take over the contract signing. She just said that Roman has been allowed to have free rein for too long, Roman on the way to the ring. Roman called out Stephanie that she doesn’t want him anywhere near the Universal title. What does Kevin Owens want now.

Kevin Owens vs Roman — Roman is giving Kevin such a beat down. Jinder Mahal has gotten involved and is now sticking his nose in Kevin’s match. It was getting pretty good, with Kevin. Neither Kevin or Roman had really made a mistake for the other to take advantage of. Kevin/Jinder going at it on Roman until Seth came out. Turned into a tag team:

Seth/Roman vs Jinder/Kevin — Jinder took out Seth as soon as Roman reached for him. Kevin/Jinder doing a good job of cutting the ring off. I have never seen Seth this explosive. Blink or you miss. Seth with the stomp putting Kevin to sleep and getting the win. Jinder with a chair after Roman/Seth tried to leave after the match.

Sami talking to Bobby Lashley’s sisters — story line for a feud with Bobby for Sami. Bobby has had enough and here he comes. All Sami has done is pushed Bobby Lashely’s buttons.

Ember Moon vs Alexa Bliss — Alexa has Mickie James with her. Guess what? — bet Mickie gets involved. With the help of Mickie, Alexa created the opening and in control. After Mickie getting busted and tossed out by the Ref, Alexa tried to hold her tights for the win but Ember kicked out and with the help of the eclipse, got the win.

No Way Jose vs Baron Corbin — It’s been mostly Corbin until Jose could get him off his feet. Corbin with the win but Jose made him earn it.

The B Team vs Breezango — I don’t know how but the B Team wins again.

Stephanie taking over for the contract signing of Nia Jax vs Rhonda Rousey at M.I.T.B. Stephanie is trash talking Rhonda, that if Rhonda loses that she will tuck tail and run. Stephanie is just trash talking both of them. What a great stare down.

Braun vs Finn thanks to Stephanie. It’s all Braun. Finn cant get anything going. It was Braun in the end but you have to give credit to Finn, he gave it one hell of a shot. Braun could have power slammed Finn again but he picked him up and dropped him  in the corner. Sign of respect.

Chad Gable vs Dolph Ziggler –even match so far, Chad has the better strength I think. Adam McIntyre at ring side but not interfering. Head but super kick got Dolph the win. Chad with the mistake giving Dolph the win. Match is over but they are still going after Chad.

Natalya vs Liv Morgan vs Dana Brooke vs Sarah Logan for a spot in the M.I.T.B — Natalya made Sarah Logan Tap out.

Bobby Roode vs Elias — Roode never got his robe off before Elias attacked him. Bell has not even rung. Roode threw his robe in Elias face and started beating him. Elias manages to get the win but it was a hard-fought one. Braun takes out Elias in one nasty shoulder shot.

 

Show Notes for Smack down Live in London

A.J Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura tonight with the winner given the right to choose the stipulation. They will meet at Money in the bank.

Daniel Bryan to the ring to chat with Renee. Renee had to pause trying to ask her question because of the crowd, I still have no clue why Big Cass has picked this fight. The universe is not liking this at all. (this story line makes no sense) Daniel had enough and he went after the knee that Cass was out for a year after having surgically repaired.

It’s breakfast in Australia and The Miz just came on, I would like to enjoy my toast. (hehe)

The New Day vs The Bar — The Miz is joining the announcers desk. the winner of the tag team match get to choose 1 member to enter the M.I.T.B Thanks to 1 hell of a spear from Big E, Xavier Woods pins Cesaro for the win.

Becky Lynch vs/Mandy Rose/Sarah DeVille for a place in the Money in the Bank. With Becky’s losing streak this should be interesting, will Mandy and Sarah really turn on each other. Finally Becky gets a much-needed win, getting Mandy Rose to tap out

Andrade “Cien” Almas with Selena Vega vs a London local. This won’t last long.

Carmella demanding respect, since she is champion she is better than everyone. Someone pleases come out and shut her up. Paige just walked out. Paige informing Carmella she will defend her title at Money in the Bank.  (shut up Corey) Carmella will face Asuka at M.I.T.B

Shinsuke vs A.J for the right to choose the stipulation for their title match. Shinsuke takes out the win.

Fallout from Back lash on Smack down LIVE

If RAW was anything to go by yesterday Smack down should be jut as good today.

Money in the Bank (M.I.T.B) qualifying matches. There is a rumour that there is a 3rd briefcase?

Paige on her way to the ring.

Jeff Hardy vs the Miz for M.I.T.B place. Miz had met his match with Jeff,it should be a good match. Jeff making Miz sing like a girl, after MIz tried it with him. Jeff just dropped Miz on the apron. Miz is still finding a way to barely kick out. Jeff thought he had Miz pinned but Miz turned the tables and got the pin (shut up Corey —  can you tell I am NOT a fan of him)

Charlotte vs Peyton Royce for the ladies brief case chance — It was a good match, I have to admit, even with Billie getting her 2 cents in but Charlotte with the figure 8 for the win. Charlotte joins Ember Moon heading to the brief case match.

the New Day — Xavier Woods defeated Sheamus last week. Today Xavier is facing Cesaro. The Crowd is chanting “We want Pancakes”. Waiting to long to take off, Cesaro with a nasty upper cut to knock out Xavier as he tried to fly for the win.

Becky Lynch vs Mandy Rose — at the last-minute Paige told Sonya that she is barred from ringside. Becky in quite the slump (rumour she might be turning heel) Mandy Rose with the legal win.

Daniel Bryan vs Rusev — (hearing that they are looking at putting Rusev back with Lana. Not sure what would happen with Aiden English) Daniel just went flying over the desk. Rusev has the strength over Daniel, Rusev too close to the ropes or Daniel jut might have had that. Rusev with the win, after the damage to Daniel’s ribs, he jut didn’t have enough left. (partly blame Big Cass for some of it)

The Miz, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor and Rusev have all qualified for M.I.T.b with 4 spots left

With it being both brands together, who every wins takes the brief case back to their brand.

Fallout from Back lash on RAW

Money in the bank qualifying. Both are triple threat matches.(men and women)

As Kurt was in the ring, Braun has come out. With the roll Braun has been on, Kurt says that he does deserve a shot at the brief case. Here comes Kevin Owens out to spoil things. Kevin saying that he deserves to be in the Money in the Bank match. Braun vs Kevin in a qualifying match for M.I.T.B

Braun vs Kevin for a place in the Money in the Bank — Braun is having his way with Kevin. A big guy with that much speed is something to watch. This was a no brainer as Braun is on his way to the ladder match.

Titus/No Way Jose/Apollo vs Baron/The Revival — this could go either way, who can put differences aside and get the job done. It was messy but Corbin and the Revival get the job done.

Sasha Banks, Ember Moon, Ruby Riott in a triple threat for the first spot in the Money in the Bank. (triple threat rules apply) Bayley to the ring helping Sasha. Ember wins with an eclipse on Ruby.

Jinder Mahal vs Chad Gable — Jinder Mahal finally get a win since coming to RAW. The match is over but Chad is getting the crap beat out of him. Jinder demanded a qualifying match for M.I.T.B and Kurt said NO

Dolph Ziggler/Drew McIntyre vs Rhyno/Heath Slater — I can see that this wont go well for Heath and Rhyno. Dolph teamed with Drew is a good match, look for them to challenge for belts and soon.

Elias vs Bobby Roode — See saw battle but it was Roode with a glorious DDT for the win.

Seth Rollins out to the ring. Seth issues an open challenge, Mo Jo Rawley answers the call. Its been a good match. Mo Jo gave Seth a run for his money.

The Miztourage is no longer, Bo/Curtis (stay tuned) facing Matt Hardy/Bray Wyatt. Sister Abigail on Curtis for the win.

Finn Balor vs Roman Reigns vs Sami Zayne for a spot in the Men’s Money in the Bank match. Sami and Finn have taken care of Roman for the moment. Finn back on his feet trying to get Sami down but Samy’s big boot got in the way. Roman just took out Sami. Finn is going up with Roman in the drop zone but no one was there. Jinder Mahal just tripped Roman, Finn landed on Sami and is heading to Money in the Bank.

Welcome to Backlash

We are in Newark, New Jersey  for tonight’s show. (Breakfast here in Australia)

I couldn’t stand Billie Kay and Peyton Royce on NXT and I cant stand them now.

Bayley vs Ruby Riott (Riott Squad with her) on the pre show. Ruby has had control for most the match. The Sarah and Mandy inserting themselves as they can. Once again, the numbers game has helped. Ruby with the win.

**(match of the P/P/V) Seth Rollins vs The Miz for the Intercontinental Belt — It’s been all Seth until now, sending Seth face first off the apron. On the apron but who can hold on. Miz has Seth in a figure 4. Seth in screaming pain. (It’s been a good match, even. No one has really had the edge.) Holy Crap, Seth knee giving him hell. Just kicking out of his 2nd skull crushing finale. Some how the stomp saved Seth and he gets the win. Great match. (It was nice to see The Miz have to work on his own)

Nia Jax vs Alexa Bliss — The bully (Alexa) vs the so-called bully (Nia) this could go either way but I hope Nia teaches Alexa a thing or two and keeps the belt for a while. Alexa has been keeping Jax off here feet to keep it a bit of a more even fight. Nia with that Samoa drop that finally puts Alexa away for the win.

Randy Orton vs Jeff Hardy for the United States Belt — this could be the match of the P.P.V. Could go either way. Randy  just dropped Jeff 3 times on the barricade. I wasn’t sure Jeff would survive but a swan ton bomb finished Randy off. Jeff keeping the belt.

Elias in the ring. The New Day out talking to Elias. Bobby Roode with a DDT on Elias.

Daniel Bryan vs Big Cass — Cass with a grudge because he didn’t get the fanfare to his comeback that Daniel did. Daniel makes Big Cass tap out to the “Yes Lock”. Cass is not happy that he got beat and is going after Daniel. Cass acting so high and mighty, Fans yelling”You Suck”

Charlotte vs Carmella for the Smack down Women’s belt — I cant stand Carmella but I had read they wanted her to wear the belt for a bit. Hope at one point Charlotte beats the snot out of Carmella but I don’t think it will be today. Trash talking Carmella. (Shut up Corey) Carmella got lucky with that pin fall after Charlotte landed awkward on her knee.

A.J Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura in a NO D.Q for the Smack down title. This one will be down and dirty, after all that has gone on. Talk about racking the family jewels, A.J and Shinsuke both down from low blows. Double count out from that double low blow. A.J keeps the belt.

Bobby Lashley/Braun Strowman vs Kevin Owens/Samy Zayne — I can’t see Samy and Kevin lasting in this one. Samy tired to do a runner but Kevin tossed him back in the ring, needless to say it didn’t end well for Kevin and Samy as Kevin got power slammed and pinned.

Money in the Bank — Airing June 17th.

Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe — The bell has never rang and jut put Roman through the announce table. Roman trying to shake out the cob webs from what Joe has already down before the bell. Fans are booing, getting restless. I don’t blame them. It’s getting boring. Roman with a spear to get the win. (this was the worse match of the night, the attack on Roman by Joe before the bell ruined this match.
