Reigns vs his Cousin for the Universal title
Bailey beating up Banks after the loss of the tag team Title again
|Re: Purpl3's WWE (and Pro-wrestling in general) Discussion And Banter House by pu7pl3(m): 2:48pm On Sep 05|
Before their tag title match, Sasha and Bayley were interviewed.
Bayley said both she and Sasha were prepared and were going to win the titles back. Sasha said that they’re best friends and nothing can stop them.
Shayna and Nia gelled better in this title defense.
Both women worked over Sasha’s injured knee and there was a great spot where Shayna had the wherewithal to move so that Sasha’s knee could connect with the turnbuckle and do more damage. Bayley came in to save Sasha from the Kirifuda Clutch and hit Shayna with a Bayley to belly.
Bayley powerbombed Nia onto the floor and Nia came in and prevented Sasha from winning with the Bank Statement. Bayley saved Sasha from Nia’s shoulders on the top rope, but Nia hit the crossbody on both women and won the match.
And then, it happened .
Bayley helped Sasha out of the ring, yelling at the officials to be careful and waved them off, and ATTACKED HER! So many kicks and throwing Sasha into stuff to injure her more. She put Sasha’s head in a steel chair and stomped on it from the ropes! She said Sasha deserved this.
We knew that this was going to happen at some point, but I have to be honest, that was a total surprise to me! Bayley unleashed her inner devil and destroyed Sasha. And it made all the sense in the world.
Bayley knows that Sasha will be her biggest foe when it comes to her championship, and now that their tag title run and chase is over, it would have only been a matter of time before Sasha wanted an opportunity at it.
And Bayley knows she would have lost. So it was time to do the deed. I love this and everything these two women have done since WrestleMania. The only thing that was desperately needed and what these women deserved, was a live crowd reaction. It would have been epic.
Dr. Jekyll has finally taken her full evil form.
The tribal chief
Y’all. My god.
Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman started this show, and Heyman told us that Roman brought him back to relevance. Don’t point the finger at him corrupting Reigns, because it’s actually the other way around. Neither he nor Reigns were thanked for their efforts, specifically Reigns after returning from Leukemia, and when he needed time off, a Fiend and a monster tried to take his place.
After telling Michael “Anderson Cooper” Cole and Corey “ Carmella’s latest boyfriend” Graves to hype their resumes on commentary, he announces that he is the special counsel for the tribal chief, our Universal Heavyweight champion, Roman Reigns.
Reigns grabbed the mic and calmly stated that he did what he said he’d do at Payback, and when this is your island, all you have to do is show up and win.
It has been a long time since I have been captivated by Paul Heyman speaking. Not because he isn’t great, but because the Lesnar/Heyman special has been a tired trope for the past few years. Now, it was so refreshing to see this duo. They did everything in their power to make this a total opposite of Heyman talking for his client. Painting this as Roman pulling the strings, getting Paul, dictating his own terms and talking for himself was the best case scenario. Paul plays second fiddle.
This was masterful, and one of the best promos of this year. Roman’s reign should be a wild ride.
Cousin vs. cousin
Jey Uso approached Reigns backstage and said he’d been trying to reach him since Payback but didn’t get an answer. He wanted to celebrate Roman’s win, but Roman said he’s busy but they’ll catch up another time. Adam Pearce was approached by Kayla Braxton and she was asked who would replace Big E in the fatal fourway match (we’ll talk about how this happened soon) and Heyman came up to ask him something.
Turns out, he got Jey Uso in the fatal fourway! Jey came to thank him, but Roman said it was Paul who pulled the strings for him, and also said that it’s about time someone showed Jey respect. Jimmy does a lot of winning and he wants to see Jey get what he deserves.
There was a lot going on in this match. Sheamus hit Riddle with the Irish Curse backbreaker, which makes me wince every time. Sheamus and Corbin both went for pins at the same time. Riddle went for a triangle choke on Sheamus but he countered with a powerbomb.
Then the really cool finish. Corbin threw Jey into the ThunderDome LED boards! He then hit End of Days on Riddle, but Riddle countered and Sheamus Brogue Kicked him! Riddle did the Bro 2 Sleep on Sheamus and a badly missed corkscrew senton to Corbin, and Jey out of nowhere with the diving splash for the win.
This was the right move.
I have longed for WWE to make sense with how they book friendships and families on television. If Jey never approached Roman about Payback, it would have looked so bad. How does Jey not approach his cousin, who he’s been in matches with and fought for, after this shocking pair up with Heyman? This is the type of continuity booking WWE needs to do more of.
Jey Uso is not going to win, but I’m really intrigued about what happens in that match. Jimmy may still be out for a while, so could we see Jey turn heel and join forces with the tribal chief and Heyman? Or, do we see a really cool singles babyface run out of Jey as Roman cements his heel turn and turns on his bloodline?
A new friend in the Funhouse - Bray Wyatt came onto our television and told us that next week, there will be a new addition to the Firefly Funhouse. Nikki Cross was shown watching the monitor backstage, and Alexa Bliss showed up to apologize for last week. Ramblin’ Rabbit appeared between them in the background as they talked!
Nikki was just saying that everything was okay between them and Alexa gave her a big hug. When talking about last week, she kind of zoned out and then snapped back to reality. I absolutely love this little arc. I also love that there’s continuity (excluding Bill Goldberg of course) with the Fiend changing everyone he comes in contact with. Will Alexa be the new addition to the Funhouse?
I am the IC champion! No, I am the IC champion! - I have missed Sami Zayn so incredibly much. Sami came out and was annoyed that Greg Hamilton and Marty, dude in the production truck, didn’t have in their notes that Sami was the real IC champion. Jeff interrupted him and said that he would have given Sami a match if he wanted. Then AJ walked out and claimed he was the uncrowned champion. Jeff then said AJ could have a rematch, and Sami took offense. Jeff turned around and AJ attacked him and Sami Helluva kicked him and ran off.
This will definitely be a fun triple threat at the next pay-per-view. Clearly the only real champion is Jeff Hardy, but Sami clinging to his WWE Replica title is so much fun. I love Sami. Have I mentioned I love Sami?
Big E gets attacked - Big E was backstage and was told that Xavier Woods would be there, so he got a cake, and when an official told him Xavier was there, he went through a door with the cake, and Sheamus attacked. He smashed his face on the hood of a car, and the Sheamus gave E the White Noise through the windshield!
All of that was really great, and then we saw the officials tending to E on the car, and Kayla Braxton was talking about what had just happened, and all of sudden Sheamus rolled up again. Half of the time Sheamus was talking, I kept telling my television, “GET BIG E TO THE MEDICAL FACILITY ALREADY!” My feelings are that this will be what sets Big E off, and I always love a no nonsense E on a mad tear.
Heavy Machinery def. Miz and Morrison - Have I also mentioned how much I am annoyed by Miz and Morrison? I don’t want to see them together anymore. Also, how obvious is it that WWE has no real direction for the Money in the Bank winner? If Braun was still champion, I would believe him cashing in and potentially winning. Now? With Roman as the champion? Yikes. Miz should have just let Morrison eat the sandwich.
Who’s this? - We had a short vignette of a woman, only shot from her about her knees down, in high heels walking wearing a fur coat in a smoky room. Alrighty then.
The only thing I disliked about this show was Heavy Machinery and Miz and Morrison. I could nitpick here and there, but y’all, so many great things were done on this show. I had a smile on my face for a bulk of it. So I can tell you that for the first time in my recapping history, I am putting the negativity aside and SmackDown has once again asserted itself as the top brand of WWE. We just needed a Roman heel turn and Bayley snapping to solidify it. And because of that…

Imagine botching your signature move on your debut with your first action of the match
Matt hardy continuing the match while concussed after this move was just stupid and reckless on the part of everyone involved, hopefully Matt is ok.
And Still your undefeated champion

Will Cedric's alliance with the "hurt business" give his career the boost it really needs? Plus WWE Creative seems to be very confused on what to do with Keith Lee and the women's tag team champs.

WWE Raw Reviews recaps and reactions
Dominik Mysterio is exceeding expectations.
Ever since SummerSlam, Dom has had multiple matches where he has gotten himself over as a Rey Mysterio babyface, which is perfectly named considering who his father is. In the main event, he faced Murphy in a street fight and the whole Mysterio family was out to watch, at Murphy’s request.
So during that match, the Mysterios did everything right. Rey’s daughter and Rey himself had a kendo stick, but never used it on Murphy and let Dom fight his own battle. Dom climbed up the ThunderDome and dove off to Murphy on the floor in a really cool spot. Dom also sold his ass off for Murphy in multiple spots that looked brutal, like when he slammed Dom’s head onto the stage.
The finish however, that was the best part. Murphy tied Dom up in the ropes again and was about to grab a kendo stick, but Rey took it away from him. Seething with anger, he slid out of the ring and looked for more underneath. He threw a table and it landed on the announce table. As he did that, Rey’s daughter and wife broke Dom free from the ropes and he did a FANTASTIC SUNSET POWERBOMB sliding under the ropes and it looked amazing.
The Mysterio family then got Murphy in the ropes, and one by one, all of them (yes, ALL of them) took turns swinging their own kendo sticks at Murphy, who gave up and gave Dom the win. Such sweet revenge.
No Seth Rollins this evening, so he’s kayfabe still super pissed at his disciple for betraying him at Payback. Obviously he was just not there this week for reasons, I’m assuming. Where does that leave he and his disciple? I’m hoping this starts the break up between them. I’m ready to see Murphy out on his own.
Finally, this beatdown at the end was virtually un-seeable as Kevin Dunn Dunn’ed hardcore during it. My eyes don’t usually hurt from the zooms and camera cuts, but ho-ly shiiiit it was so bad for this.
Three Claymores for RKO
Randy Orton said he’d jump through whatever hoops he had to in order to earn his rematch for the WWE Championship, and now he finds himself facing Lee again. The more they cross paths, the more likely he is to kick him in the head. Orton asked, what do you do if the champion can’t defend his title at the one show of the year where every champion has to defend their title?
Obviously you hand Orton the belt!
All of a sudden, Scott Steiner… oh sorry no just an ambulance siren rang through ThunderDome and an actual ambulance came out. Drew McIntyre opened the door and went down to the ring and gave Orton a Claymore Kick! Well I didn’t expect Drew to march out after obviously stealing an ambulance from the local medical facility.
Anyway, this is the Drew McIntyre I can get behind!
Later, Lee held himself up as Orton went for the RKO! That was such a cool visual. All night though, cameras kept catching Drew in the back as he said he was leaving, and that pretty much telegraphed exactly what happened during the match. Orton on his third RKO attempt finally connected, and he turned around into a Claymore Kick for yet another DQ in yet another Lee vs. Orton match.
After the match, Randy was leaving the building and Charly Caruso went to ask him a question, but this time, he was ganged up on and Drew gave him ANOTHER Claymore Kick. 3 RKO’s and 3 Claymore Kicks. I’m not the only one that wished Drew was driving the ambulance out of the arena that Randy was loaded into, am I?
Have I mentioned that this is the Drew I can get behind? Because I love it!
Liv Morgan was about to pin Nia Jax in the second 2 on 1 match, and the lights went out.
RETRIBUTION appeared, and they said that behind the ThunderDome is the same WWE as before (very true!), and they were disowned and discarded and WWE left them to survive in an unfair world. Another one said they’re going to lay waste and destroy every WWE superstar.
Okay, so it’s about time we actually heard from this group. Just… like, yeah I don’t know. Once again, they randomly interrupted something that wasn’t that important to get their message across. I’m annoyed by how Raw just doesn’t care about this group that continues to interrupt the show and “hack” lights and whatnot. I’m equally annoyed that the group is only on one show now. They’re talking about WWE in this promo, not just Raw.
Why just Raw, though? It just doesn’t make sense. Oh okay we hate WWE and want to wreck up their shit, but we’re only going to do it to Raw! Huh?
Good that we hear from them, but if it doesn’t make sense, it’s best that they just don’t talk at all.
The Hurt Business def. Crews, Ricochet, and Cedric Alexander / VIP Lounge- It’s about damn time! As I mentioned last week, I was pretty much done with this. Week after week after week of this back and forth between MVP and Cedric was tiresome. But he turned heel! He wrecked Ricochet. I was kind of hoping Ric would be the one turning in a swerve but I enjoyed what we got! The Hurt Business being real dicks before the match was a nice touch. A group with the name “hurt” should be… hurting people after all! Now I am intrigued to see where we go here as this is Cedric’s first heel turn in WWE.
Later, we had a VIP Lounge segment, and Cedric told us that being at the business end of a beat down every week wasn’t fun anymore. Teaming with a guy who calls himself the “One and Only” in Ricochet and protecting someone without getting himself a title match got tiring. He also brought up getting paid more to be a winner which was a great touch, but then was interrupted by Viking Raiders, Ricochet, and Apollo Crews, and they all brawled to a commercial. So you knows what that means!
The Updated Hurt Business def. Viking Raiders, Ricochet, and Crews - The Viking Raiders had a really nice double team to MVP. Cedric was being a real dick laughing at Crews getting beat up by the Hurt Business. Benjamin hit Erik with 3 effortless overhead suplexes like a boss. My favorite moment was Cedric and Ricochet going at it. And then we had… another referee botch as Ricochet kicked out and they counted to 3 and rang the bell. Appreciate the extra aggression from Cedric here.
2 on 1 mayhem - Shayna had the first 2 on 1 vs. Riott Squad and twisted Ruby’s arm like a pretzel, but got pinned by Liv Morgan on a distraction by Nia, who just laughed off her tag partner losing. In the second match, RETRIBUTION interrupted before Liv could get the win over Nia.
Street Profits def. Andrade and Angel Garza / The Artists challenge Street Profits - Very strange that Dawkins waited for the first interaction between Garza and Andrade to end before attacking Andrade. Maybe tonight was the end of this tag team? After teasing a break up for weeks last month, they started gelling together again. Running away from RETRIBUTION may have been the final nail in the coffin. For whatever reason, the referee botched the 3 count after two while Montez was pinning Andrade, took another whole second, and counted the three and ended the match.
Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura came out after their win, and said that they had a long run with the Raw titles, but didn’t do much with them (boy is that the truth!) and next week, they’ll be challenging them to a champs vs. champs match. STD joke almost got bungled and kind of fell flat for me, fam. Wait, Survivor Series isn’t next week…
Peyton Royce def. Billie Kay - This… was weird. I didn’t really know how to react to this. I can say that I, without a shadow of a doubt, prefer that these two women team up. Also, you can really tell that they don’t have chemistry as opponents. This was a quick match and had a few slip ups, but they embraced after Peyton won and I thought Peyton was going to attack her, but they moved on.
Asuka and Mickie James def. Natalya and Lana - The ol’ champion and challenger in a tag match a week before their own match trope. Appreciated Lana wearing Hart family colors in her gear. Asuka slapped Mickie’s butt to tag in. Heh. Got a laugh out of me. I’m expecting a run in next week and a DQ because that’s the typical WWE booking.
Raw Underground - KO and Aleister Black fought here and gave Underground its first long match since the inception. They had a whole 2 on 1 Shayna vs. Riott Squad match and a commercial in between this for some reason. Aleister had a triangle hold on and KO swung him into a column. They then brawled with other dudes as Shane McMahon tried to regain order. And then we went to the other 2 on 1 between Nia and the Riott Squad. When they came back Daba’Kato (formerly Babatunde) destroyed them both and that was the end.
This should have been the best episode of Underground given who was involved, but ended up being the worst, thanks to stupid WWE antics. Why the hell would you put two matches, RETRIBUTION promo, and two commercials between this match? This was something myself and a lot of people were looking forward to.
Once again, Raw was more bad than good. Really dragged, too. Drew, Keith, and the Mysterio family were my highlights, and that’s it. This show hasn’t been doing well since SummerSlam, to be honest. The repetitive booking is continuing to hurt Raw. Many matches where people have faced each other too many times since SummerSlam. Give me the draft!
