Smack down in Canada

At Backlash, A.J Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura’s match will be a NO Disqualification match.

Miz T. V — Miz bans Daniel Bryan from Miz T.V (what did he do? He got beat up by Big Cass and was a no-show) Miz telling Seth Rollins he wants what belongs to him. Jeff Hardy with the United States title. Randy Orton out during Miz T.V before their match on Sunday. Shelton Benjamin out demanding a title shot. Miz taken out by a whisper in the wind

Shelton Benjamin /The Miz vs Randy Orton/Jeff Hardy — MIz dropped on a table. It was a seesaw battle, Randy and Jeff won but Rand just dropped Jeff in an RKO.

Big Cass on his way to the ring. Cass will face Daniel Bryan on Sunday at Back lash. Cass demanding Daniel come to the ring but Daniel was not cleared to wrestle tonight.

A.J Styles to the ring to meet Rene Young. Shinsuke demanding an apology. Why should A.J say sorry after the low blows Shinsuke pulled. Samoa Joe just walked out.  After Samoa Joe ran his mouth,(he’s coming for A.J after his match with Roman on Sunday at Back lash) Shinsuke hit A.J with another low blow.

Xavier Woods (New Day) vs Sheamus (Cesaro) at ring side —   Cesaro is the bigger of the 2. Going to be hard for Xavier to win this one I think.Woods steals the win with a roll up after playing possum.

Charlotte/Becky Lynch/Asuka vs Carmella/Payton Royce/Billie Kay in a tag team match — Charlotte takes out the Iconics, goes about Carmella, tried to get rid of Asuka and Becky to team up on Charlotte before Sunday to help Carmella out. Asuka back up and got Charlotte out of there. Asuka made Peyton tap out.

See you for Backlash

Greatest Royal Rumble

With the time difference I am watching the replay. I have seen some of the outcomes but want to see how things unfolded

The Women’s division is not taking part of this pay per view. My understanding is due to the culture reasons they did not make the trip.

Triple H vs John Cena — this should be a good even match. Not seen either since Wrestlemania. First time in 8 years that John and H have met in a singles match. It took 3 AA’s but John with the win

Kalisto vs Cedric Alexander — title challenge for the cruiser weight belt. It was an even match but it was Cedric’s night.

Matt Hardy/Bray Wyatt vs Cesaro/Sheamus — for the RAW tag team belts. I think all rules are going to be thrown out the window to win the belts. Thanks to an elevated Twist of Fate, Matt and Bray are the new Tag Team champs

Jinder Mahal vs Jeff Hardy for the United States Belt — Sunil Singh helping Jinder out there. sunil once again trying to interfere to help Jinder. A swan ton bomb takes out Jinder for the win.

RAW Tag Team belts — Woken Matt Hardy /Bray Wyatt vs The Bar (Cesaro/Sheamus) It was an even match but Matt and Bray got the edge and kept it to become tag team winners.

Smack down Tag Team belts — The Usos vs The Bludgeon Brothers. There was no doubt that Luke and Erik would keep the belts which they did.

Ladder match for the Intercontinental Belt — Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, The Miz, Samoa Joe. Seth comes out of nowhere to steal the title out of Finn’s hands.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs A.J Styles for the WWE title — The universe is very vocal for this match. Double count out. A.J Keeps the belt

The Undertaker vs Rusev in a casket match — With Rusev already in the casket, Aiden English joins him with the Undertaker slamming the lid shut

Steel Cage match — Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns — Thought Roman was going to take the belt but Roman spears Brock out the door, as Brock hits the floor first he keeps the belt. Maybe  at Summer slam Roman will finally take the belt. (Seeing the footage, Brock’s back hit the floor first, Romans feet hit the floor. The rules state that both feet MUST hit the floor to be the winner)

RAW in Canada

Sunday is Backlash

Roman talking about the fall out from the Great Royal Rumble. What is Jinder Mahal doing out here? Jinder challenged Roman to a match tonight. (still tired of Brock having the belt) Sami Zayne walked out and the place went nuts. Sami says that he will take on Roman, here comes Kevin Owens, (geesh) Now Kevin wants in on the action. Bobby Lashley/Braun Strowman came out and helped clear the ring with Roman.

Elias in the ring to face Bobby Roode –no one has really been able to get the upper hand so far. Elias drove Bobby neck first into he corner post, EMT’s had to be called. Bobby had a hard time getting his breath. Elias declared himself the winner.

Authors of Pain vs 2 locals who will get beat in no time flat.

Seth Rollins on his way to the ring. Seth faces The MIz on Sunday for the Intercontinental Belt. Finn just walked out, after a chat, and with the crowds OK, Finn and Seth for the I.C belt tonight.

Ruby Riott (Riott Squad) vs Sasha Banks(No Bayley) Riott Squad as usual with the numbers get the win.

Alexa Bliss turning the tables calling Nia a bully. Nia defends the Raw Woman’s title on Sunday against Alexa.

Jinder Mahal/Kevin Owens/Sami Zayne vs Roman/Braun Strowman/Bobby Lashley — What an interesting bunch. Anything is possible. It’s gone back and forth. I can’t get over the speed that Braun has. big guys like him aren’t suppose to move like that. Braun played possum, catching Kevin Owens and planting him like a tree for the win.

Baron Corbin vs No Way Jose — Corbin is another big guy who has surprising speed. Titus world wide at ringside. No way Jose with an assist in that win.

Mickie James (Alexa Bliss in her corner) vs Natalya (Rhonda Rousey in her corner) Alexa tried to help Mickie but during a foot race with Rhonda, Natalya got the win.

Finn Balor vs Seth Rollings for the Intercontinental Belt — should be an even match up. It’s an even match, both men having answers for the other.  Finn almost beat Seth with his own move. This match has been brilliant. Seth holds on but Finn made him earn it.

 

 

RAW from St.Louis

Today’s show is dedicated to Bruno Sammartino

Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar on the way to the ring.

(Pay Per View from Saudi Arabia. (rumour is that Roman will finally win the belt in the steel cage match) All the male titles are up. They are not taking the women on this trip.)

Of course Paul is gloating as he always does. Fans are getting restless and tired of the same old stuff from Heyman and Lesnar. The Boo’s are starting. Here comes Roman. Roman put it simple, “I’m coming home with the title”

Elias vs Bobby Roode — even match but no one has made a mistake as of yet. Elias hung up Bobby in the ropes and stole the win.

Accession vs Matt Hardy/Bray Wyatt

Kevin Owens/Sami Zayne — with their talk show and Kurt Angle is there guest. Time wasting for a crappy promo. Kurt just put Samy and Kevin in a tag team match against Bobby Lashley/Braun Strowman.

The Miztourage talking to Seth. With Miz gone, Seth told the boys no to recreate the Shield.

Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler — kicked butt and won.

Chad Gable in Kurt’s office. Jinder Mahal comes in complaining about losing the United States Title, starts picking on Chad. They are off to the ring for a match. Jinder attacked Chad before he even got int he ring. Jinder the more dominant but Chad created some offence. How did that just happen, he has beaten Jinder.

Renee with the Riott Squad.

Samoa Joe cutting a promo, talking about Roman and his challenge at Backlash

Kevin Owens/Samy Zayne vs Braun Strowman/Bobby Lashley — Bobby is looking really good. Braun is not supposed to be as quick as he is for a big guy. Bobby and Braun are having their way with Samy, Kevin is no where.

No Way Jose vs Baron Corbin — Baron said no to a match but jumped Jose once the conga line was gone.

Finn Balor/Seth Rollins vs The Miztourage —  It was always going to be Seth/Finn with the win

10 Women’s tag team main event — Nia Jax/Ember Moon/Natalya/Sasha Banks/Bayley vs Mickie James/Alexa Bliss/Ruby Riott/Sarah/Liv — I like Ember. It’s an even match but I can see it getting out of hand at some point. It did fall apart and Rhonda Rousey to the ring for a little assistance with Natalya’s girls.

10 man tag team — Kevin Owens/Samy Zayne/The Miz/Miztourage vs Finn Balor/Seth Rollins/Braun Strowman/Bobby Lashley/Bobby Roode — Its been back and forth between the two teams. No one has really gotten the chance to take advantage of a mistake made by the other team. Braun just caught Miz in a footrace around the ring. Miz got flattened by a Strowman drop kick. Miz tried to tag out but the Miztourage stepped back and refused to tag. Braun pinned Miz for the win.

 

Smack down Shakeup

Carmella on to celebrate her taking the title from Charlotte. Like it was a big deal or anything. Waiting for Charlotte to take her rematch clause. Finally, here comes Charlotte to shut up Carmella. Here come Billy Kay and Payton Royce. Charlotte being double teamed but here comes Becky. Possible tag team match here: Charlotte/Becky vs Billy Kay/Payton. Turned out to be a single match Charlotte vs Billie Kay. Charlotte made Billie tap. Here comes Asuka.

Here come Anderson/Gallows to Smack down tag team division.

The Bar, R-Truth and Tye Dillinger all on Smack Down.

Holy Crap — Sanity is coming from NXT

Andrade “Cien” Almas and his manager on their way to Smack Down.

A.J Styles/Daniel Bryan vs Rusev/Aiden English — this could be an even match. Daniel is still new back in the ring but there is not much ring rust. Daniel is holding his own great, here come the “Yes” kicks. Shinsuke (turned heel) out of no where and a low blow on A.J. and now Big Cass goes after Daniel for no reason.

This is all breaking down.
