WWE 2020: Reviving the Wrestling Industry

Recommended Posts

So I started this game in 2016 post Wrestlemania and I do constant updates on the 'What's in your game' section so I decided to write it all down on here and hopefully you'll all enjoy if your read despite my writing style being quite average at best. Anyway I am going to post the last PPV that I did which was Summerslam and for anyone that read about it on the 'What's in your Game' section you'll know how much I loved booking it.



When a PPV gets your worst rating in over 3 years you'd expect me to be a bit annoyed but this has been my favourite ever PPV to book and the opportunities it offers going forward makes me so happy despite only getting an 82 B as the rating.


Live for the first time from the 70k attendance WWE Connecticut Arena, we started off with Alexa Bliss who was trying to work her way up towards another title shot and she was up against Nia's ally, the undefeated Allysin Kay and in a 78 B it would be Kay who won and continued her dominance here on the main roster. The former 2 time NXT Women's Champion has recently formed some kind of alliance with Queen Nia and her, Nia and Dana Brooke are running rampant over Raw and no one is able to stop them.


Next up saw Queen Nia defending her Women's Championship against Ember Moon as everyone on Raw tries to step up and stop her dominance and this time it was Ember who tried but like everyone before she was unsuccessful as she went for her top rope stunner move but gets caught by Nia and hits a powerbomb (I don't even know if that is possible it just seems like it would be cool. Very difficult but cool). The match only got a 73 as Ember isn't greatly over and they don't click.


Both of them were on the pre show due to time constraints as there is a hell of a lot of matches on this card and a lot are way too short but the most important ones are longer. This brings us to the start of the main show where we were going to crown the first ever WWE Trios Champions when the Kingdom Of Dreams took on Sean Finlay, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson who represented Bulletproof. The match got an 89 B+ and our first ever Trios Champions are the Kingdom of Dreams when Joey Bennett defeated Doc Gallows with the Box Office Smash to win it for his Kingdom. The Trios championships will travel between each brand and I am glad that I went with these three to be our first ever champions.


After that it was an 82 B as Joe Hendry took on the Swiss Superman Cesaro. The winner would be Joe Hendry who picked up a huge surprise victory here but it was thanks to an interference from the former tag team partner of Cesaro, Kassius Ohno. Cesaro asked Ohno to go their separate ways but Ohno clearly disagreed with this as he took out Cesaro after the match and he hit the KO on Cesaro before leaving him in the ring.


Following that we had a six pack challenge for the number one contendership to the United States Championship between Jeff Hardy, Tommaso Ciampa, Drew Gulak, Xavier Woods, Jake Carter and Akira Tozawa. This match was very fast paced and everyone was taken out of this match apart from Drew Gulak and Tommaso Ciampa who are both part of the Cruiserweight division and while Gulak got the most offense in he was hit with the Project Ciampa and Ciampa became the number one contender to whoever wins in our winner takes all match later on in the show.


In an 88 B+ Marty Scurrl defended his Light Heavyweight Championship against the former champion Tyler Breeze and this is one of the reasons I loved booking this show. They've been fighting each other anywhere after they were brawling backstage one week, the next week they had a fight in the middle of a Hairdressers and after that they had a fight on a Railway Station before continuing the attack on the train itself. However we got to this match and it stayed in the ring mostly and Scurrl picked up the victory to retain his Light Heavyweight Championship.


Following that it was an Irish street fight between Sheamus and Conor McGregor and it turned out to be a short match between them when in 4 minutes Conor knocked out Sheamus in super quick fashion.


Another short one here as Sami Zayn had his rematch for the Global Championship against Chad Gable and in an 85 B+ Gable retained his title with the Ankle Lock making Sami tap out.


Ever since Backlash when Jerry Bowman defeated John Cena to win the Intercontinental Title and joined Prospect, he's had everything handed to him and becomes more and more cocky every week. This time he went up against Brian Kendrick after Kendrick cut a heartfelt promo about how he was on the streets and that this is his life only for Bowman to claim that he's going to put Kendrick back on the streets where he belongs. And while Kendrick had the whole of the fans behind him, Bowman had prospect to help him out and following a distraction from Big E, he hit the RainBow Driver to retain the IC Championship in an 83 B+.

Post match Jerry Bowman was celebrating with Prospect when Conor McGregor's music hits and he comes out and stands on the ramp. He points at Jerry Bowman, smiles and the camera fades into an advert.


After he dispatched of his brother last month, Jimmy Uso (who now wants to be called by the name Jimmy Fatu so he is no longer associated at all with his brother) took on Alberto Del Rio for the European Championship and in a 91 A it would be Jimmy Fatu who picked up the victory and won the European Championship with a Superfly Splash. I love Del Rio's work on the indies but it was a good time to take the title off him and a huge program going to continue now between Jimmy Fatu and Jey Uso when Uso returns soon after he was injured by Jimmy.


Following that it was a fatal 4 way tag team match for the number one contendership to the Tag Team Titles with the winners taking on whichever won the Tag match later tonight. This match was between The Price Is Right, Hermanos Enmascarados, Sabre and Ospreay and the newest tag team in the WWE of Austin Aries and The Miz as the Greatest and the A-lister. The winners of this match was The Price is Right when Eric Price defeated Angel De Oro with a Gutwrench Powerbomb.


After Finn Balor failed to win the Cruiserweight Championship from Cedric Alexander last month at Battleground, his Balor Club friend Adam Cole next stepped up to the challenge and in a 90 A Adam Cole won the Cruiserweight Championship with the Florida Key.

Post match Balor Club were celebrating when from out of nowhere The Young Bucks and Adam Cole all hit superkicks on their leader Finn Balor who was caught by surprise and dropped to the mat. However as they were beating down on him we hear 'Phenomenal' and the fans go mad as AJ Styles makes his return and makes the save for his former long time enemy Finn Balor. AJ Styles hits the Styles Clash on Tama Tonga while The Young Bucks and Finn escaped up the ramp.


We followed that up with the second highest rated match on the card where Randy Orton took on Seth Rollins in a 95 A* rated match. This is another storyline I've loved booking because of the huge stipulation on the match. If Randy Orton won then the Punt Kick would be unbanned by the WWE but if Seth Rollins won then the Curb Stomp would be unbanned. Seth Rollins would pick up the victory when he avoids the punt kick and hit a Curb Stomp on Orton to win the match and he gets the Curb Stomp back which will be important in the future.


In the most disappointing match rating of the night it was the final of the best of 7 series for the Raw Money In The Bank briefcase when Neville took on Cole Galloway in a TLC match. So far Neville defeated Cole Galloway in a ladder match, and in a regular match on UK Takeover in Newcastle before Galloway got one back on a Raw in Scotland and Galloway then won on a house show to level it up. On The next Raw, Galloway made it 3-2 in a chair match and finally on the last Raw before the PPV Neville made it 3-3 in a tables match setting up their final match here in a TLC match. This match sadly only got a 78 B as Galloway is not good in high spot matches. Neville would put Galloway through the announce table with a red arrow from the top of the ladder and then as he set up the ladder somehow Galloway managed to make it back into the ring and pulled him off the ladder and hit a Future Shock DDT. Both men collapsed to the mat as the fans chanted this is awesome. Both men got to their feet at the same time and just started punching each other in the face until Galloway fell to the mat. Neville climbed to the top and tried to retain his briefcase only to be pulled down again by Galloway. However as he was pulled down he hit a mid air hurricanrana on Galloway and finally took him out of the match. Neville retains his title in a match I'm rating 100 A* but that got a 78 B.


The Revival would defend their Intercontinental Tag Titles up next in a 94 A as they took on Dashing and Perfect in a rematch from Battleground. It would be The Revival who would retain their titles when Dawson escaped the Cross Rhodes and they hit a Shatter Machine on Cody. This one was debatable as Dawson has just returned from a 28 day suspension for using Pain killers but I have bigger plans for Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect than being tag champions.


In a rematch from Wrestlemania Bayley was cashing in her Women's Money In The Bank contract on Sasha Banks as she transferred over from Raw. Sasha took her title at Wrestlemania after we saw the return of the BFF's when Charlotte and Summer Rae got involved. This match was another match between them on PPV and it was a very back and forth contest. It came close to ending when Sasha who was getting frustrated at being unable to put Bayley away decided to hit Bayley with her own Bayley to Belly only for Bayley to kick out just before the 3 count. Bayley would get her revenge on Sasha and regain her title when she avoided the Roundhouse Kick from Sasha and hit her with the Banks Statement and locking it in the middle of the ring forcing Sasha to tap out to her own move and Bayley gets a huge pop as she becomes a 2 time Women's United States Champion.


After that We had the WWE Championship on the line when 'The Lunatic' Dean Ambrose took on Enzo Amore. Enzo had no one at ringside to start the match but when Ambrose started to gain an advantage, Big E and Jerry Bowman came down to ringside. This wouldn't help Enzo however as Big E was took out with a huge spear from Roman Reigns and Bowman was took out with a Curb Stomp from Seth Rollins making it a fair one on one match for the title. Enzo went to the top rope late on in the match only to be caught with a kick to the gut from Dean who hit a Dirty Deeds on Enzo 1, 2 kick out from Enzo. Dean picked him up for a second one only to be pushed back into the referee by Enzo and the ref was knocked down. Unknown to Dean, Big E had gotten to his feet and with The Shield gone from ringside he slid into the ring and hit a Big Ending on Dean. Enzo rolled over on top of Dean and the referee did that stupid, slow count they always seem to do only for dean to kick out at 2 this time. Enzo was furious and started pushing the ref around until he was stopped by a roll up from Dean who lifted him to his feet following this and hit a second dirty deeds. 1,2,3 The fans go wild as Dean Ambrose claims his first ever WWE Championship here in the WWE (Only 4 years after he did in real life lol). The Shield lift him up on their shoulders as he holds the title in the air after overcoming Prospect.


The semi main event was the match of the night as I knew it would be but I had to have the other match as the main event because of how important it is for the next 2 years of the company. However this was the winner takes all tag team match with the winners tag team becoming tag team champions and whoever gets the pinfall becomes the World heavyweight and United States Champion aswell between the tag team champions Shibata and Crews against the US Champion Noam Dar and the World heavyweight Champion Damien Sandow. For the most of the match the teams were on the same page until towards the end when they all realised only one could walk out with all three belts and they turned on each other. Damien Sandow took out Noam Dar with a Terminus but he got hit with a PK from Shibata. However as Shibata went for the pin he was grabbed and thrown out the ring by Apollo Crews his tag partner who hit a Standing Shooting star Press on Sandow and won all of the titles.

Post match Sandow looked furious as he felt that Noam Dar had cost him the match and he hit a Terminus on Dar to turn heel following the 96 A* rated match and the fans booed both him and Crews out of the building while Shibata and Dar were left wondering what the hell just happened.


And now we got to the big one, the huge match with huge stipulations between Bray Wyatt and Triple H. If Triple H wins, Bray Wyatt has to leave the WWE and his contract is terminated but if he wins then Triple H has to retire from wrestling. This match was a No Holds Barred and both me hate each despite Triple H at first saying that he didn't hate Bray Wyatt just that he thought Enzo would be a better champion than him but as Wyatt played mind tricks and got into his head he just got more aggressive and he finally exploded last week on Smackdown where Bray Wyatt mentioned his family and Triple furious that he couldn't get his hands on Bray, dragged Mauro Ranallo from the commentary table and pedigreed him in the middle of the ring. The match started with Triple H rolling out of the ring to get his sledge hammer only to turn around once he had it into a chair shot to the gut from Bray and they fought on from there. As the match went on Prospect tried to get involved only for Bray to hit a quick Sister Abigail on Big E and Enzo and Bowman thought twice about entering the ring again. Bray Wyatt went into the corner and started doing his creepy crawl thing when over each of the four barricades jumped Braun Strowman, Frankie Daniels (Kazarian), Bobby Fish and Justin Gabriel. All 4 of them are former Lucha Underground Champions, Lucha Underground that went bankrupt but was bought by an unknown buyer. All 4 of them surrounded the ring and Bray and Triple H stood back to back in the middle of the ring only for Bray to turn around into a kick to the gut and a Pedigree from the Game who just stands up and smiles. He grabs a microphone and says "You are looking at the new owner of Lucha Underground" and all 4 men jump in the ring and beat down on Bray, each hitting their finishers on him. Even though he was clearly unconscious already, Triple H had them lift Bray back up where he hit him in the chest with the Sledgehammer before hitting one last definitive Pedigree on Bray and pinning him to pick up the victory. Bray Wyatt has to leave the WWE and he leaves them with no one knowing what is going to happen next.


That match only got a 78 B which for a main event of one of the big 4 but I think the fans would have loved the show anyway with the amount of twists and turns it took aswell as the great wrestling on display. If I was in the crowd for that main event I wouldn't care that it was a bad match as you'd want to tune in on Raw and Smackdown to find out who the men are, why they are here and what they are going to do next.


As I said it was a horrible rating but an absolutely great one to write and I hope anyone who read the whole of that enjoyed it because I certainly enjoyed planning and booking it.

Whatever I'm doing I seem to be thinking about who is the next Intercontinental Champion or who will be main eventing Wrestlemania. I love your additional comments and Fishuke made me especially laugh. Also if you were wondering why Conor McGregor is taking on Bowman it's because Bowman is a part time MMA fighter and he's actually undefeated so while he's been getting really cocky and saying he is the best in MMA and WWE leading to McGregor to confront him about it.</p>

<p>Here we are with the Smackdown exclusive PPV Superstars which saw the in ring PPV debut of all the Lucha Underground stars that debuted so shockingly at Summerslam.</p><p> </p><p>

We started off with a Technical Masterclass match as Marty Scurll defended his Light Heavyweight Title against Eddie Edwards. Both men were well suited to the style of the match and in an 88 B+ Eddie Edwards claimed his first singles championship here in the WWE and got a huge babyface pop to start the show off to a strong start.</p><p> </p><p>

That was followed by an 82 B when Braun Strowman made his return and he would take on Taylor Rotunda. Taylor was furious that his brother was screwed out of the WWE and wanted to get his hands on any of the Lucha Underground invaders only to be shaken when Triple H offered him Braun Strowman as his opponent. However, despite the major size difference between them he accepted the match and went into this match the huge underdog. Unfortunately for him he was unsuccessful in his attempt at revenge as Braun tore him apart and despite taking Braun down with a Spear, he wasn't able to get the job done and eventually fell to the Running Powerslam.</p><p> </p><p>

The next match was the worst rating of the night with a 76 B- as Rusev's Alliance Title open challenge was answered by Lucha Underground's Justin Gabriel. The two did not click in the ring though and the match didn't live up to the expectations. Despite this, Justin would pick up the victory over Rusev here and become the new Alliance Champion which is significant as he is the first Lucha Underground invaders to become a Champion in the WWE which I'm sure Shane won't be happy about if he survives his match with Matanza tonight.</p><p> </p><p>

After that it was a steel cage match between Alberto Del Rio and Jimmy Fatu but the only way to pick up victory was by escaping the cell whether through the door or over the top of the cage. There would be no pinfalls in this match. Jimmy was the first to reach the top of the cage and he looked down at Del Rio, looked like he was going to go for a Superfly Splash only to smile and just climb to the floor as Del Rio crawled for the door. The match got an 86 B+ and both men felt they fitted the style of the match.</p><p>

Post match Fatu decided that enough wasn't enough and he picked up Del Rio and put him on top of the announce table after the cell was raised and he climbed to the top rope. However as he was about to go for the Superfly Splash, Jey Uso's music hit and he ran down to make the save by distracting Fatu who went straight for him. Fatu ate a double superkick from Del Rio and Jey for his troubles.</p><p> </p><p>

That was followed by the owner of the WWE Shane McMahon taking on Matanza. Triple H says he wants the WWE out of the power of his brother in law and Shane decided that if anyone was going to get rid of them then he needs to lead by example. The match got an 80 B as Matanza dominated the whole match and threw Shane around like he's a ragdoll until Shane managed to get a small comeback while on the outside of the ring. He threw Matanza onto the announce table and climbed to the top rope where he proceeded to put Matanza through the table with a diving elbow drop and on the 9 count he managed to slide into the ring and pick up a Count out victory over Matanza.</p><p> </p><p>

The Intercontinental Championship was on the line up next as Conor McGregor took on Jerry Bowman of Prospect and the man that took that title of John Cena who McGregor faced earlier this year and defeated. McGregor is unbeaten coming into this match and that would continue as in a 79 B he made him tap out to the Armbar and won his first championship here in the WWE. Not disappointed with the rating as it was heel on heel.</p><p> </p><p>

After that the Intercontinental Tag Team Championships were on the line up next as The Revival took on Crash and Burn and in a 92 A The Revival would retain their tag titles when Dawson defeat T-Bone with the Shatter Machine.</p><p> </p><p>

Another Lucha Underground representative Bobby Fish was in action up next as he took on the King Of Strong Style Shinsuke Nakamura. Shinsuke decided that he didn't want his chances here in the WWE getting ruined by invaders after he was cost his opportunity at the WWE Championship by Bobby Fish. They put on a great match here and Shinsuke Nakamura would pick up the victory in an 88 B+ following a second Kinshasa.</p><p> </p><p>

Bayley would defend her Women's United States Championship here against two women who she has defeated to win the Women's US Championship in Liv Morgan and Sasha Banks. Liv came into this match with high momentum after she defeated Bayley before Summerslam and recently she beat Sasha one on one and got the pinfall in a tag match on Smackdown recently. However it would be Bayley who retained her title here when she defeated Sasha Banks with a Bayley To Belly of the second rope. Liv Morgan was furious post match and she wanted another shot as she was not pinned. The match was great and got a 91 A rating.</p><p> </p><p>

The semi main event saw Mr WWE himself John Cena taking on Frankie Daniels who claims that he is furious about being mistreated when he was here last time and won the IC Tag titles with Christopher Daniels only to be released when Christopher retired. He feels he has unfinished business and he had a shot here to show he is a top class talent as he took on the 16 time world champion and the man that will defend WWE until the day that it dies in Cena. Daniels would pick up the huge shock victory here in the match of the night with a 98 A* rating as they have great chemistry. </p><p> </p><p>

The main event itself saw Enzo Amore getting his rematch against Dean Ambrose for the WWE Championship and Shane had banned anyone from ringside meaning that no Shield, Prospect or Lucha Underground could get involved in the match so it was a fair contest to begin with. They had a very back and forward match until Enzo Amore decided to wind up Dean Ambrose by spitting in his face which infuriated the Lunatic. Ambrose hit Enzo with 3 consecutive dirty deeds each more brutal than the last one and he picked up the victory to retain his WWE Championship but he is finally starting to look like he's crazy and not right in the head. The match itself got a good 94 A rating and I'm </p><p>

Post match Jerry Bowman and Big E join Enzo in the ring and help him to his feet only for them three to turn around into a 5 on 3 attack from Lucha Underground as Triple H just watches from the ramp as his new stable beats down on his three proteges with a sick smile on his face. It seems he has moved on from the three men he called the biggest prospects in wrestling today.</p><p> </p><p>

The show got a 93 A and I was extremely happy with the Cena vs Daniels match and it will make Daniels look like a star going forward.</p><p> </p><p>

In other news: Charlotte has gone on her maternity leave after she screwed over my plans on having her become Women's MITB by getting pregnant. Also Jim Cornette made David Otunga the TNA World Champion only for 2 weeks later Evolve signed him to a written contract. Speaking of Evolve they grew to National and just like ROH did when they grew to National they started a B show on Mondays at the same time as Raw. Interesting. </p><p> </p><p>

<p>WWE No Mercy was a PPV with a lot of exceptional matches aswell as two matches that clearly stole the show.</p><p> </p><p>

We started off with the first of Apollo Crews title defenses tonight as he took on his former tag partner and the man he was tag team champions with, Katsuyori Shibata. The two were tag team champions just one month ago but on the first Monday Night Raw after Summerslam they lost their tag team titles to The Price Is Right. The next week Crews would be furious as he was a triple champion and he believes that Shibata was to blame for the loss as he was the one that got hit with the Gutwrench Powerbomb and was pinned by Eric Price so Crews took him out only to be told by Edge that he would defend his US Championship against Shibata here. In an 88 B+, Crews would successfully retain his title with the Sitout Spinout Powerbomb on Shibata after a hard hitting contest. After this I doubt we will ever see Shibata again as he has very low stamina, large declining physical ability and he's poor in ring now so I'm going to let him go now.</p><p> </p><p>

The second match on the card saw the aforementioned The Price Is Right defending their newly won Tag Team Championships against the newest team on Raw in The Greatest and The A-Lister (Austin Aries and The Miz). The match got an 85 B+ when The Price is Right retained their tag team titles here when Eric Price escaped out of the Scull Crushing Finale and hit a Gutwrench Powerbomb to pick up the victory for his team.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that up with Jake Carter complaining that he hadn't been given a recent title shot despite being dominant on Monday Night Raw so he issues an open challenge. His open challenge is accepted by Kofi Kingston who returns from his 6 month injury to take on Carter. In an 86 B+ it would be a close contest until the end of the match when Kingston would go for a Trouble In Paradise but Carter ducks out of the way and rolls up Kingston, gets the 3 count and picks up the victory. However, replays do show that Carter had the tights and Kingston is furious.</p><p> </p><p>

The Raw money in the bank was on the line again up next as Neville took on Dolph Ziggler to defend his briefcase. Originally these two were meant to have the best of 7 series that Neville and Cole Galloway had only for me to realise they had poor chemistry but for me to go ahead with my plans I needed to have this match for a major reason. Dolph Ziggler was in the corner and was calling for a superkick but Neville avoided it and he hit the superkick on the referee who went down. Neville turned around only to be hit with a superkick from Ziggler. However as Ziggler went for the pin he was pulled off by his own manager Paul Heyman who just smiled and clotheslined Ziggler and he walked over to Neville, lifted him to his feet but as he was holding Ziggler down he was pulled off by Neville's manager William Regal and Regal hit Heyman with his Brass knuckles and both men rolled to the outside. Despite this Ziggler was still down and Neville climbed to the top rope, hit the red arrow and picked up the victory while his feets where on the rope for the elevated pin. The match got a 90 A despite them not clicking which shows how good these two men are.</p><p> </p><p>

In the lowest rated match of the night, Queen Nia successfully defended her Women's Championship against Tessa Blanchard in a 78 B when she made her pass out to the Bear Hug just like she has done to so many people on Raw. She grabs a microphone after the match and complains that there is no one on her level and she wants some real opponents.</p><p> </p><p>

The Global Championship was on the line up next as Chad Gable's title was on the line when he took on Axel Dieter Jr. in an 88 B+ rated match. Gable would pick up the victory here with a pretty routine victory over Axel and it was just a way for Gable to retain his momentum.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

After their victory at Summerslam, The Kingdom Of Dreams would defend their Trios Tag Championships for the first time as they took on Kenneth Ospreay, Ryan Sabre and Sami Zayn of The Assassins. The match would get another 88 B+ here and it came down to Ospreay and Joey Bennett in the ring but Big Damian was the legal man on the outside. Ospreay threw him over the top rope and he ran to go for a Suicide dive when he was hit with a Big Boot from Damian out of nowhere. He had the advantage from there and hit the Ulster Plantation on Ospreay to pick up the victory for his trio. Great match here especially for a heel on heel match.</p><p> </p><p>

Earlier on in the night we saw former tag team partners collide when Apollo Crews took on Shibata and we would once again see former tag team partners up against each other here when Cesaro took on Kassius Ohno. It was in a match last month at Summerslam between Joe Hendry and Cesaro when Ohno took out his former tag partner as he said he wanted to make an impact and he saw a perfect opportunity. However he clearly picked the wrong person as in an 83 B+ Cesaro picked up the victory with a Schoolboy leaving Ohno furious as he was on top most of the match.</p><p>

Post match Cesaro was celebrating when he was jumped from behind by Tommy End who appeared out of nowhere to attack the Swiss Superman and soon Ohno joined in on the attack. He was saved however by former World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk who ran down to make the save for his friend Cesaro and completed his slow burning face turn.</p><p> </p><p>

When AJ Styles returned last month at Summerslam, everyone was shocked as he was only in Ring Of Honor for 9 months before he returned to the WWE and today he teamed up with former Cruiserweight Champions Cedric Alexander and Finn Balor to take on Superkick Party (The Young Bucks and current Cruiserweight Champion Adam Cole). Towards the end of the match Team Cedric are on top and AJ styles has Nick Jackson set up for a phenomenal forearm, he jumps, SUPERKICK! Matt Jackson saves his brother with an amazing superkick but he turns around into a dropkick into the corner from Finn Balor who heads to the top rope for a Coupe De Grace, SUPERKICK! Nick Jackson is the one to make the save here for his brother as he hits an amazing superkick on Finn who rolls out under the ring to join AJ on the outside leaving Alexander alone in the ring with 3 men. However when all three go for the triple superkick Cedric ducks and they go over the top rope to the outside and Cedric sees his opportunity. He runs to the rope and dives through the ropes, NO SUPERKICK! As he dived through the rope Adam Cole hit him with a Superkick and Superkick Party. AJ Styles, the legal man is first to his feet and he rolls into the ring where he is joined by Finn. They fight for a while until once again The Bucks hit the double superkicks only for Finn and AJ to hit them with double Pele kicks and all four men fall to the floor. AJ reaches his corner and tags in Cedric at the same time that the Cruiserweight Champion Adam Cole re-entered the match only to be immediately taken down by Cedric who hits the Frog Splash to pick up the victory for his team. The match got a great 94 A rating here and I imagine it being an incredible match.</p><p> </p><p>

The Semi main event was the match of the night as for the third time tonight former tag partners clashed except this time Noam Dar and Damien Sandow only teamed once and Sandow turned on Dar after that match anyway. He claimed that Noam had cost him his opportunity to retain his World Heavyweight Championship and win the US Championship and the Tag Team Titles despite Noam Dar not wanting to lose his US Championship in that match. Anyway they had great chemistry which led to them getting a 99 A* match here before Sandow picked up the victory after he threw Dar into an exposed turnbuckle and then hit the Terminus to pick up the victory. Absolutely insane match here which I expected but no as good as it actually was in the end.</p><p> </p><p>

The main event saw the continuation of a rivalry that was happening before Apollo Crews won the World Heavyweight Championship as he took on Jeff Hardy for his World Championship. Apollo recently defeated Jeff on PPV and in the match where he won the tag titles with Shibata, it was a triple threat tag team match including The Hardy Boys. However this time Jeff Hardy believed he wanted one more shot up against Crews and if he lost he would get no world title matches while Crews was still the champion. It looked like he would pick up the victory aswell as Crews was down after a Twist Of Fate and he went to the top rope for the Swanton Bomb when Matt Hardy's music hit. Jeff looked confused as his brother came down to ringside and it offered enough of a distraction for Apollo Crews who hit Hardy with an Enzuigiri followed by a superplex and then Crews was able to hit his standing moonsault to pick up the victory and make the first defense of his World Heavyweight Championship in a 92 A match.</p><p>

Post match Jeff was down and looked extremely upset at what just went down and he doesn't notice that Matt has rolled into the ring behind him. Matt smiles in a sickening way before grabbing a chair that he brought in with him and smacked Jeff across the back with it.</p><p> </p><p>

The PPV itself got a 93 A and I was extremely happy and I feel I've really picked up in my booking as of late.</p><p> </p><p>

In other news on the same day Bruno Sammartino passed away and Kurt Angle officially announced his retirement from Wrestling. I have planned a big Bruno Sammartino Tribute Show happening soon as he was a huge star in WWE and deserves it. As for Angle after he lost a retirement match to Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania I let his Contract run out so he can retire and then I may bring him back as some kind of Manager/Road agent role.</p><p> </p><p>

WWE Armageddon 2016 saw a large show here with a main event feud that has gone on since before Summerslam and they looked to come to a head today.


We started off with my first women's tables match of this save which saw former Women's United States Champion taking on the former Women's Champion Peyton Royce. Sasha was annoyed that Peyton cost her a fatal 4 way number one contenders match by putting her through a table so she looked to get revenge here and put Peyton through a table of her own. That was not how it would turn out however as Peyton put her through the table with a Fisherman's Suplex in an 82 B to pick up the victory and put herself in serious consideration for a title shot.

Post match Peyton helps Sasha to her feet and both women shake hands before heading to the back.


After that we saw a 76 B- as Matanza took on Brian Kendrick and I can't call this a match as this was literal domination for the whole 8 minutes of this match. Matanza was furious after what happened against Shane last month so when Brian Kendrick issued a challenge to any of the Lucha Underground roster, he replied by throwing him into a wall. Anyway he picked up the victory here and looked dominant again after what Dario Cueto called the most embarrasing moment of his brother's career when he lost to Shane.


Following that we had the rematch for the Light Heavyweight Championship as the champion Eddie Edwards took on the former champion Marty Scurrl in a Submission match. In an 82 B Eddie Edwards would retain his title when he defeated Scurll by submission with the Achilles Lock despite all the cheating attempts from Marty.


Just like the Matanza match, Braun Strowman vs Ricochet couldn't really be called a contest because while Ricochet did get some offense in, it was never any doubt that he would walk out of here with the victory and he did so with the Running Powerslam after he caught Ricochet off a moonsault


After he was crushed by Braun Strowman here tonight, Ricochet is down in the middle of the ring and appears to be knocked out when Triple H's music hits and he walks down to the ring with something in his hand.

He walks past Braun and smiles as he enters the ring to see the battered mess that is Ricochet is still not on his feet. Triple H looks down at him and just walks off but not without leaving a Prince Puma mask in the middle of the ring beside the body of Ricochet. When Ricochet has recover he finds the mask and holds it in his hands before walking to the back without putting the mask on.


In a very poor match Paris Youngblood defeated Tony Nese in a 72 B- just to give Youngblood some more momentum.


In an 82 B, Justin Gabriel made his first defense in the WWE of his newly won Alliance Title as he issued an open challenge to anyone on the roster for his championship as is required for the title holder to do so. Anyway his open challenge was accepted by Shiima Xion who came close to winning the title but as he went for the Jumping DDT he was rolled up by Gabriel who used the ropes for leverage and retained his title. He quickly grabbed said title and ran up the ramp as fast as he could while Xion was left in the ring distraught.


After his victory over Jerry Bowman last month to win the Intercontinental Title, Conor McGregor would take on an old rival in Shinsuke Nakamura. Jerry Bowman still has his rematch for the title but he said that he needed to come back better than ever so he's going to take 6 months off, train and fight again in MMA and when he wins he wants to come back and take his title of the man he calls the best he's ever faced which is saying something as he's faced Triple H, John Cena, Randy Orton and No Way Jose ;). This led to a six pack challenge number one contendership between all men that McGregor has beaten and Shinsuke came out victorious. This match got a 90 A when as Shinsuke was setting up Conor for the Kinshasa when the lights went out. When they came back on, Shinsuke was surrounded by Justin Gabriel, Matanza and Braun Strowman who beat down on Shinsuke meaning McGregor retained his title by DQ.


After his shocking victory over John Cena last month, Frankie Daniels teamed up with Bobby Fish to challenge for the Intercontinental Tag Team Championships against The Revival. In a 93 A, it would be Daniels and Fish (known as The Underground) who picked up the victory and won the tag titles here for Lucha Underground and they now hold two WWE titles which they will certainly look to grow in the future.


However Shane McMahon's music hit and he came down to the ramp with a microphone. He says "Next month is Survivor Series and we all know what I want to go down. Triple H I want your 5 best men to take on my 5 best men in a 5 on 5 Survivor Series style match..."


Triple H says "Shane, why should I listen to anything you even have to say? We're going to takeover this company whether we defeat you or not but her I propose something aswell. If Team WWE is victorious then we will leave your company alone and you can have your company back. However when Team Lucha Underground picks up the victory, I want full control over Tuesday Night Smackdown. That is my terms so Shane O do you accept?"


Shane reluctantly says "I want you gone and any way I can I will try to destroy you so Triple H, you're on!"


We followed that up with an 88 B+ as the Women's United States Championship was on the line when Bayley defended her title against Liv Morgan who last year lost he Women's US Championship to Bayley had another shot to win the title. That she would when after 22 minutes we saw her reverse out of the Bayley To Belly and hit the Liv Or Die to pick up the victory and become a 2 time Women's US Championship.

Post match Bayley was getting to her feet when Liv started beating down on her and she was soon joined by Sasha Banks, Summer Rae and Peyton Royce who took her out. Sasha then grabs a microphone and says "Last week I told you all that the BFF's were done but that was the original BFF's. We don't need Charlotte anymore because you are looking at the biggest and best faction here in WWE and if anyone gets in our way then you will fail because we are 4 and you are 1.


The Semi main event was for the WWE Championship as Dean Ambrose defended his belt against The Bulgarian Brute Rusev and in an 83 B+, It would be Dean Ambrose who retained his title after he almost passed out to The Accolade only for Rusev to be distracted by Roman and Seth suddenly jumping over the barricade at ringside. This slight distraction meant that when Rusev turned back around Dean hit with a Dirty Deeds and then looked right at Seth Rollins as he hit Rusev with a Curb Stomp to pick up the victory and retain his title.


The main event saw a European Championship match between Jimmy Fatu and his brother who he disowned, who he beat up and who he put on the shelf for 3 months Jey Uso. Jimmy Fatu walked in as champion after he defeated Alberto Del Rio at Summerslam to win the title just one month after Superkicking Jey through a glass window. However last month Jimmy was attacking Del Rio after retaining his title when Jey ran down to make the save. This led to this match here for the title and as hard as he tried,as much effort as he put in, how much the crowd was behind him he was unable to pick up the victory when Jimmy hit a low blow on Jey while the ref was down, hit a superkick and then hit the Superfly Splash to pick up the victory and retain his European Championship. He was celebrating on the top rope with his title when Jey furiously hit a Superkick on him and he fell to the floor. They came into this PPV wanting to end the rivalry but it seems like Jey wants another shot at getting revenge.


Following that 90 A it meant that the PPV got an 89 A and the next PPV is King Of The Ring and the tournament is underway and I have big plans for both KOTR and Survivor Series which is 2 weeks after that.

<p>The final Raw exclusive PPV before one of my biggest months of the year for booking with King Of The Ring and Survivor Series but first up we had Capitol Punishment.</p><p> </p><p>

We kicked it off with the United States Championship on the line as Apollo Crews defended against Joe Hendry. Fresh of the biggest win of his career against Cesaro, Hendry won a number one contenders battle royal to have the chance to take on Crews here and while he walked in as the underdog, he picked up a huge pinfall over Kazuchika Okada in a tag match on Raw just a few weeks ago. However his momentum would be cut short here as in an 83 B+ Crews would pick up the victory and retain his title with the Standing Moonsault.</p><p> </p><p>

The Trios Tag Championships were on the line up next as we saw The Kingdom of Dreams defend their titles against the team of Lince Dorado and Los Luchas in a 92 A. However, this match wasn't exactly an open contest as for most of the match Lince was dominated by Big Damian and while the Los Luchas got some offense in it ended with Greg Thomas picking up the pinfall and retaining the Trios titles. This was my way of punishing Lince after he returned from suspension for taking steroids and while I want to push him in the future, I feel that this would be a wake up call for him.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that by having The Cults Of Personality (Cesaro and CM Punk) taking on The New Kings (Kassius Ohno vs Tommy End) in a tag team match. After Cesaro beat Ohno last month, he was attacked by End only for CM Punk to make the save. This led to this match here and in the match of the night with a 97 A* when CM Punk defeated Ohno with the GTS following a big swing by Cesaro. Important to note here that End was not pinned so he is still unbeaten.</p><p> </p><p>

After the shocking scenes last month when Matt Hardy cost Jeff Hardy the World Heavyweight Championship, they would go head to head here tonight. Matt was frustrated that Jeff kept getting all the shots at the title while he was pushed to the side by his brother who kept on losing. He lost to CM Punk, he lost to Damien Sandow but he still got an opportunity at taking the title off Crews which he also failed and now they went one on one. In an 82 B it would be Matt that picked up the victory with a Twist Of Fate.</p><p> </p><p>

After the insane 6 man tag match last month, Cedric pinning Adam Cole meant he got his rematch for the Cruiserweight Championship tonight. In a 94 A, it would be Adam Cole who picked up the victory and retained his Cruiserweight Championship when he beat him with the Florida Key. </p><p>

Post match Finn came out and said that he was going for the title at the next PPV but first he wanted to know why Cole and the Bucks had turned on him. Cole said "We decided that you were not needed anymore and we have someone else who is better than you are and you will find who out who very soon Finn. But I can guarantee this guy is the 'Elite' superstar.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with a 90 A for the Tag Team Championships when The Price Is Right defended their titles against The Von Erich's. After a surprising roll up victory for Marshall Von Erich on Eric Price in a singles match, it meant that The Von Erich's came into this match with a fighting chance. At the end of the match Marshall rolled up Price again but Ted Dibiase came into just before the 3 count and made the save which let Eric Price hit the Gutwrench Powerbomb and retain their Tag Team Championships.</p><p> </p><p>

Queen Nia would have her toughest challenge yet when she took on the former 4 time WWE Women's Champion and WWE hall of Famer Lita who made a shocking return when Nia said that she had no one left to defeat anymore. Lita challenged Nia to a match and claimed that she would prove that Nia was good but just not one of the best. However in an 83 B+, Nia would pick up the victory here and once again she retained her title crushing Lita in the process. This match got a 83 B+ and Lita was extremely tired by the end of this match which affected it.</p><p>

Post match Nia was celebrating before she turned round and Lita extended her arm to shake hands. Nia just looked at her and smiled before grabbing her and putting her in the bear hug but before Lita taps out or passes out, Trish Stratus' music hits and the crowd erupts as she runs down to make the save and Nia just escpapes the ring with her title. Trish points at the title before helping Lita to her feet and to the back.</p><p> </p><p>

The semi main event like last time saw Noam Dar taking on Damien Sandow as he was furious that Sandow cheated to win and he wanted one more shot to beat his former friend. He would do so as well and get revenge when he makes Sandow tap out the Champagne-SuperKneebar following a low blow by Dar to get revenge on Sandow cheating to win by fighting fire with fire and winning here. Straight afterwards Edge comes down to the stage and announces that they will have a third and final contest at Survivor Series in a 2 out of 3 falls match with the winner getting a World Heavyweight title shot. Match gets a 95 A*.</p><p> </p><p>

The main event saw Cole Galloway going up against Apollo Crews for the World Heavyweight Championship and Galloway claimed that Crews was disrespecting that title and ruining its prestige so he wanted to take it off him here. The match got a 96 A*and Apollo Crews would retain when he rolled up Galloway only to get a 2 count but hit a standing moonsault instantly, picked up Galloway and hit the Sitout Powerbomb to win the match. Brilliant match and Galloway put up a great showing but once again was unable to win the title and this made him furious as he walked to the back.</p><p> </p><p>

Great PPV here which got a 94 A and some really good matches in there aswell and Raw looks really strong right now.</p><p> </p><p>

Also sorry for no quick picks for this PPV as I completely forgot to add them.</p>

<p>Another of my favourite PPV's to book in WWE has been booked with King Of The Ring where we crowned a new Queen Of The Ring and King Of The Ring.</p><p> </p><p>

We started off with 4 quarter final matches in the KOTR tournament.</p><p> </p><p>

The first to start the show saw the Cruiserweight Champion Adam Cole take on "the Phenomenal" AJ Styles and in an 82 B we saw AJ Styles advance to the next round following a distraction to Cole from the number one contender Finn Balor lead to AJ hitting the Phenomenal Forearm and picking up the victory to advance to the Semi finals. 78 B.</p><p> </p><p>

The second Quarter Final for Raw had Jeff Hardy trying to get vengeance on his brother and advance to the semi finals when he took on Matt Hardy. However Matt would pick up the victory once again when he beat Jeff with the Twist Of Hate to win the match and advance to face AJ Styles in the next round. 82 B.</p><p> </p><p>

The first Smackdown Quarter Final match saw tag team partners and former IC Tag Champions Cody Rhodes and Tye Dillinger facing off. After shaking hands, it was a back and forth contest but Tye was caught in the Cross Rhodes and Cody advanced to the semi finals. 77 B.</p><p> </p><p>

The fourth and final Quarter final match saw John Cena take on Elgin. In an 84 B+ Elgin would pick up the shock victory over Cena and advance to the finals when he hit the Elgin Bomb and walked away with a victory. The victory though had to be credited to Team Lucha Underground who came down to ringside to distract Cena (A member of Team WWE at Survivor Series).</p><p> </p><p>

We then had the Semi Finals of the Queen Of The Ring tournaments and up first we had The Unbeaten Allysin Kay taking on Alexa Bliss in the Raw Semi Final. In a 75 B- Alexa Bliss would shock the world and give Kay her first loss when she hit the Twisted Bliss and got the 3 count to advance to the final of the tournament.</p><p> </p><p>

The second semi final match saw Peyton Royce taking on former friend Billie Kay. In an 85 B+ Peyton would walk away with the victory and go on to take on Alexa Bliss after she defeated Billie with the Bridging Fisherman's Suplex.</p><p> </p><p>

We had the first title on the line up next as Eddie Edwards defended his Light Heavyweight Championship against Prince Puma. After his match with Braun Strowman last month, Ricochet took the mask that Triple H left him and the next night he launched a large attack on Eddie Edwards and declared himself Number One Contender. Then we get to this match where Eddie came in bandaged and in pain and that would cost him here as in an 84 B+ he would lose the title to Prince Puma who hit the 630 Senton to win the title.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with the Semi Finals for the KOTR tournament.</p><p> </p><p>

First up we saw AJ Styles taking on Matt Hardy and when the referee went down it looked like trouble for AJ as The Bucks came into the ring only for AJ to duck and they caught Matt with a double Superkick and AJ capitalized by throwing them out the ring and hitting a Phenomenal Forearm to advance to the finals of the tournament. 80 B. </p><p> </p><p>

The second Semi Final match was between Elgin and Dashing Cody Rhodes as Elgin looked to pull of another upset against another former WWE Champion. However this time it wasn't to be as Cody Rhodes hit him with a Disaster Kick followed by another Cross Rhodes and he advanced to the final to take on AJ Styles. 76 B-.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with our second of three title matches on this show when Jey Uso got one last shot against Jimmy Fatu but if Jey lost he would have to leave the WWE for good. This wouldn't happen however as Jey moved out of the way of Jimmy's Superfly Splash this time and hit one of his own to walk out as the new European Champion as he beat his brother for the first time in his career in a 90 A.</p><p> </p><p>

We then had the final of the Queen Of The Ring tournament which saw Alexa Bliss take on Peyton Royce. Last year it was Raw's Nia Jax that won this tournament but this year in an 81 B it would be former Women's Champion Alexa Bliss who picks up the victory and is crowned as this year's Queen Of The Ring despite all the efforts of The New BFF's to get involved. Her crowning Ceremony saw her cut a promo on how she is going to be the first person to defeat Nia Jax in over a year but she is waiting for the perfect time.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with the final of The King Of The Ring tournament as AJ Styles had his biggest opportunity since returning as he took on fan favourite Dashing Cody Rhodes. It was a difficult contest and both men kicked out of the others finishers and after Cody kicked out of the Styles Clash, both men were down when Tyler Breeze and Tye Dillinger ran down to ringside and while Breeze distracted the ref, Dillinger took out AJ Styles with a Tye Breaker and Cody got to his feet, looked at AJ on the ground and just smiled. He lifted him to his feet, hit a second Cross Rhodes and picked up the victory to become this years King Of The Ring.</p><p>

He grabs a mic after and says "You all thought I was going to give you a great match between two of the greatest? AJ isn't even on my level and you can cry and boo all you want but we are sick of listening to you. Now all of you will bow down at my feet and HAIL KING CODY"</p><p> </p><p>

The main event saw Dean Ambrose defending his WWE Championship against the Viper Randy Orton and in a 96 A* Dean would once again retain his title but once again it took the distraction of The Shield to do so. This time however instead of hitting a Curb Stomp to win, Dean Ambrose looked right at Roman as he hit a Spear on Randy to retain his title. As Roman hands him the title, he grabs it off him and holds it in the air while staring straight at his other members of The Shield.</p><p>

As he was celebrating though, all three members were attacked from behind by Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect. Tyler took out Seth with a Beauty Shot, Tye Dillinger took out Roman with a Tye Breaker before Cody Rhodes took out Ambrose with a Cross Rhodes before grabbing the WWE Championship and holds it in the air to close out the show.</p>

<p>"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the 34th annual Survivor Series and tonight could change the future of the WWE forever when Team WWE takes on Team Lucha Underground for control of Smackdown. Also tonight Apollo Crews looks to regain the Tag Team Titles with his new partner Kazuchika Okada while he also tries to retain his United States and World Heavyweight Championships. This and much more to come tonight but first off we have Apollo Crews and Okada vs The Price is Right for the WWE Tag Team Titles"</p><p> </p><p>

So yes Apollo Crews claimed that he should have a rematch for the Tag Titles with his new tag partner Okada so they challenged The Price Is Right for their Tag Titles. However right at the start of the match when Crews goes to tag in Okada, Okada drops off the apron and walks off leaving Crews in a 2 on 1 handicap match. Crews put up a good fight against Ted Dibiase but as soon as Eric Price entered the match it was over for him as in a 78 B, The Price is Right retained their titles following a Gutwrench Powerbomb to Crews. Not a good start for Crews right at the start.</p><p> </p><p>

With Frankie Daniels and Bobby Fish being involved in the huge 5 on 5 match later tonight, it meant the IC tag titles were not on the line so Shane booked a fatal 4 way tag team match for the number one contendership to the Intercontinental Tag Titles between The Revival, The Bravado Brothers, Team LuchaGore and Gold Rush. It would be The Bravado's who picked up the surprise victory with them only being on Smackdown for three weeks. They will go on to challenge for the titles at No Way Out. 83 B+.</p><p> </p><p>

After one of the biggest wins in his career when he won the KOTR Tournament, King Cody would be in double action tonight starting now when he teamed up with his partners Tye Dillinger and Tyler Breeze to take on The Kingdom Of Dreams for the Trios Tag Titles. Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect would win the match and become the second ever Trios Champions in the WWE. The match only got an 81 B but it was heel on heel and King Cody had limited involvement so a fair rating overall.</p><p> </p><p>

On Raw a couple of weeks before Survivor Series Chad Gable issued an open Challenge for his Global Championship which Zack Ryder accepted. However after the match when Gable retained, both him and Ryder were attacked by The Greatest and The A-lister leading to this fatal 4 way match for the Global Championship. It would be Austin Aries who picks up the victory when he made Zack Ryder tap out to the Last Chancery.</p><p>

Post match however Aries refused to let go off the submission and when Gable tried to stop him he was beat down in a 2 on 1 attack. They continued the attack until Jason Jordan's music hit and he returned to a huge pop to make the save for his former tag partner and former rival Chad Gable. I've decided to get rid of the crazy Jason Jordan and make him normal again by saving Gable.</p><p> </p><p>

In an 81 B, Conor McGregor made another successful title defense against Karl Anderson as he retains his IC Title. He was celebrating on the stage when he was attacked from behind by Matanza who then powerbombed him through the stage. I had to take the title off him as he refused to drop the title to Karl Anderson and he refused to sign a new contract so I've wrote him off tv with an injury and he vacates the title.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with the culmination of one of the biggest feuds this year when Jey Uso defended his newly won European Championship against Jimmy Fatu in a last man standing match in an 84 B+. Even if Jimmy regained his title Jey wouldn't get a rematch so this really was the end of this feud whoever came out on top. It would be Jey Uso that won as he retained his new European Championship when he hits Jimmy Fatu with 3 Superfly Splash's leaving Jimmy Fatu knocked out completely.</p><p> </p><p>

In the joint highest rated match on the card, Apollo Crews was in action again as he defended his United States Championship against Tommaso Ciampa in a 99 A*. Crews came into this match with injured ribs following the damage done by Eric Price earlier on and Ciampa clearly dominated the match. Ciampa would win the match and become the new United States Championship and Crews realised that tonight he came in thinking he would win it all but he could lose it all and he's already lost twice tonight heading into the main event.</p><p> </p><p>

Sadly the next match could have been a classic but Trish Stratus and Queen Nia didn't click meaning Nia's title defense only got an 82 B rating. Stratus wanted to prove that Nia wasn't as good as she believes she is while Nia wants to cement herself as one of the best women ever and she would do just that when she dropped Stratus with three Leg Drops and retained her Women's Championship.</p><p> </p><p>

After Cedric Alexander failed to regain his Cruiserweight Championship from Adam Cole, Finn Balor was the next to step up and challenge who he thought was the new leader of Superkick Party only to be told that there new leader was yet to be revealed. However we did see Cole vs Balor here for the Cruiserweight Championship and in a 91 A, Adam Cole would manage to retain his title with a superkick following a rake to the eyes that the ref didn't see. Good match and I'm enjoying having Cole as the champion so far.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with a 95 A* as Young Bucks took on AJ Styles and Cedric Alexander in a tag team match. The Bucks had just seen Cole pick up a victory and they followed that with a victory of their own when they defeated Cedric Alexander with More Bang For Your Buck.</p><p> </p><p>

After Braun Strowman was injured in a 5 on 1 attack on Smackdown, Triple H comes out to the ring to announce his final member while Team WWE Looks on.</p><p> </p><p>

He says "After your cowardly attack on Braun Strowman to take out our monster I have had to look for someone who is able to take you down. I considered Matanza. I considered taking one of your WWE guys. I considered even entering into the match myself. However I found someone that you weren't expecting. Please allow me to introduce the 5th and final member of Team Lucha Underground: Pentagon JR!"</p><p> </p><p>

It was time for the huge Team WWE vs Team Lucha Underground match and if Team WWE won then the Lucha Underground invaders would never step foot in WWE again but If Team Underground won then they would get full control of Smackdown. With that huge announcement from Triple H we started off with a confrontation between Alberto Del Rio and Pentagon Jr. However the first man to be eliminated would be Justin Gabriel when he tapped out to the Cross Arm Breaker from Del Rio. However soon after that WWE would suffer their first elimination when Pentagon Jr made Big E tap out to the Cross Armbar. Prince Puma then eliminated Shinsuke Nakamura with a moonsault after Nakamura was taken out by his own tag team partner Alberto Del Rio who just smiles as Shinsuke is eliminated. He then rolls out the ring and allows himself to be counted out leaving WWE with only 2 members left to the 4 of Lucha Underground. Enzo Amore would try to even it up by eliminating Prince Puma with the Frog Splash and then rolling up Bobby Fish leaving it in a 2 on 2 situation. Pentagon Jr would put Underground ahead again as he made Enzo tap out to the Armbar again leaving the hopes of WWE in the hands of 'Mr WWE' John Cena. John put up a good fight but just like he did two months ago, Frankie Daniels pinned Cena to the mat and this time it ensure that Team Lucha Underground won and they got control of Tuesday Night Smackdown in a great 96 A* match.</p><p>

Triple H grabs a microphone and says "We told you we would win and we did but we're not done just yet. SO tune in this WEDNESDAY for Wednesday night Lucha Underground."</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that match with a fatal 4 way for the United States Women's Championship between Liv Morgan, Bayley, Paige and Sasha Banks in a 90 A contest. Liv Morgan would manage to retain her title here when she defeated Bayley with the Liv or Die while Sasha and Paige were brawling on the outside of the ring.</p><p> </p><p>

Another 96 A* followed that and it was the final match in the feud between Damien Sandow and Noam Dar as they fought in a 2 out of 3 falls match. The first fall went to Damien Sandow when he threw Dar into an exposed turnbuckle and hit a Terminus. The second fall went to Dar as he leveled it up by throwing Sandow into the same exposed turnbuckle and rolling him up. It came down to the third fall now and Sandow hit another Terminus on Noam Dar 1,2, Kickout. Somehow Dar manages to kick out and he quickly locks in the Champagne-Superkneebar and Sandow taps out and Dar wins the match.</p><p> </p><p>

The semi main event of the show was a 99 A* as King Cody got his earned opportunity to claim the WWE Championship from 'the lunatic' Dean Ambrose. Dean was about to pick up the victory when Tyler Breeze and Tye Dillinger came down to ringside and distracted Dean. They were laid out however when Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns came to ringside with Seth using Roman's briefcase to smack Tyler Breeze in the face with and then Roman spearing the hell out of Tye Dillinger. This distraction led to Cody getting Dean in the Cross Rhodes only for Dean to escape, hit the Dirty Deeds and retain his WWE Championship. Post match there was a huge 6 way brawl between The Shield and Dashing, Gorgeous and Perfect where they had to be separated by security.</p><p> </p><p>

The main event was a no disqualification match for the World Heavyweight Championship which saw Apollo Crews defend his title against John Morrison. Crews came into this match in a terrible state, he'd been destroyed by Eric Price, beaten up by Tommaso Ciampa and he came into this one with his ribs heavily bandaged aswell as his shoulder. John Morrison comes into this one after luckily winning a number one contendership match with a roll up but he's been looking more strong recently and has a big chance here. In a 99 A* Crews managed to somehow be on top here with the use of weapons but as he set up Morrison for the Sitout Powerbomb he was attacked from behind by Alberto Del Rio, Frankie Daniels and Bobby Fish who then put him through a table that was set up earlier on. John Morrison looks at what is happening and smiles before hitting a Starship Pain 1,2,3. He wins the WWE world Heavyweight Championship.</p><p>

Triple H once again grabs a microphone after he comes out onto the ramp smiling. He says "Your winner and new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, JOHNNY MUNDO"</p>

<p>The 2nd to last PPV of the year was the first PPV for the new Lucha Underground after Triple H replaced Smackdown with the new show on a Wednesday was No Way Out with 2 Elimination Chamber matches.</p><p> </p><p>

Speaking of Elimination Chamber matches, we started off with one for the vacant Intercontinental Title between Taylor Rotunda, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Rusev, Matt Patterson, Vilhelm Berg and Jack Gallagher. First to enter were Hiroshi Tanahashi and Taylor Rotunda and to the surprise of everyone, Tanahashi was rolled up within a minute by Rotunda and eliminated. This was my way of punishing Tanahashi who just returned from rehab for his problems with drugs. The next to be eliminated was Vilhelm Berg who was eliminated by Rotunda aswell when he hit him with a spear. Rotunda would be eliminated next however by Rusev who made him tap out to the accolade and then did the same to Jack Gallagher. This left two former US Champions in the chamber in Patterson and Rusev and it looked like Rusev would win when he got Patterson in the Accolade but Matt somehow managed to escape, hit the one percenter and became the new Intercontinental Champion in an 82 B.</p><p> </p><p>

The next match got a 77 B despite the two men not clicking as Colby Corino made his PPV debut against Devin Cutter. It would be Corino who picked up the victory against his old NXT rival and I have big plans for the son of Steve Corino in the future.</p><p> </p><p>

The Alliance title would be on the line next as Justin Gabriel defended his belt in an 81 B against Go Shiozaki who was on loan from NOAH. Justin Gabriel retained his title with a 450 splash and both men had good chemistry together.</p><p> </p><p>

In an 88 B+ Elgin looked to build on the biggest win of his career against John Cena at KOTR by taking on Sheamus here tonight. He would pick up the victory aswell when he pinned Sheamus with the Revolution Elgin Bomb to continue his momentum.</p><p> </p><p>

After the end of the huge feud between Jimmy Fatu and Jey Uso at Survivor Series, Jey Uso needed a new challenger for his European Championship and that challenge would come from Cody Hall who was accompanied to the ring by his father Scott Hall. Despite the efforts of Scott to help his son win, Jey Uso would walk out still the European Champion as he defeated Cody Hall with the Superfly Splash in an 86 B+.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with a rather disappointing 79 B as Pentagon Jr made his singles debut against Big E. Triple H wanted to punish the members of Team WWE and while Enzo and John Cena are yet to get theirs, he put Big E up against 'The Armbreaker' Pentagon here. Pentagon would pick up the victory when he made Big E tap out to the Fujiwara Armbar.</p><p> </p><p>

Eddie Edwards had his rematch for the Light Heavyweight Championship against Prince Puma and in an 85 B+ it would be a very close contest. However in the end it would be Prince Puma who wins and retains his title but it would take 2 Double Moonsaults to finish of The Wolf in the end and Edwards made himself look very good.</p><p> </p><p>

At Survivor Series Alberto Del Rio turned his back on Team WWE and joined Team Lucha Underground and tonight he took on the man that he turned on, Shinsuke Nakamura. Shinsuke Nakamura came into this match furious as he was once again turned on by someone who he thought was a friend and he tried to take down Del Rio (now known as Alberto El Patron). However he would be unsuccessful as he was forced to tap out to the Cross Arm Breaker from El Patron after a distraction from various members of Lucha Underground.</p><p> </p><p>

Two of them members were Frankie Daniels and Bobby Fish (The Underground) and they would defend their titles now against The Bravado Brothers who won their number one contendership in the fatal 4 way tag team match back at Survivor Series. However they were unable to defeat The Underground and Bobby Fish defeated Liam Bravado to retain their titles in a 90 A.</p><p> </p><p>

The Semi main event got a 99 A* when Liv Morgan defended her Women's United States Championship against Bayley who wanted a one on one rematch for the title. After 25 minutes Liv Morgan would pick up the victory when following interference from Sasha Banks she was able to hit the Living Hell and retain her title. Bayley was left dejected post match as once again she was prevented a victory by the BFF's.</p><p> </p><p>

The main event also got a 99 A* as in an Elimination Chamber match, the 3 members of The Shield took on the 3 members of Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect for the WWE Championship. Roman Reigns and Tye Dillinger would start it off with Tye hitting the Tye Breaker on Roman only for Dean Ambrose to enter and make the save for his 'brother'. The double team was too much for Tye and Dean eliminated him with a Dirty Deeds. Tyler Breeze would enter next only to also be double teamed and he would fall to a spear from Roman Reigns leaving King Cody in a 3 on 1 situation. Cody put up the best fight he could but he fell to a Curb Stomp from Seth Rollins. This left an interesting situation as we had all three members of the Shield left inside the Chamber to fight for the WWE Championship. Roman was the first man eliminated when Seth Rollins hit a Curb Stomp as Roman dived for a Spear on Dean Ambrose. However he turned around was hit with a Dirty Deeds from Dean Ambrose but he didn't seem to want to end it like that. He rolled him onto the steel part of the chamber and proceeded to powerbomb him 3 times on the ground and then hit one last Dirty Deeds to pick up the victory and retain his WWE Championship.</p>

<p>The last PPV before the Royal Rumble saw Raw hold Elimination Chamber and just like Smackdown's No Way out we would start and end with an match inside the chamber.</p><p> </p><p>

We started off with an Elimination Chamber match for the Cruiserweight Championship. Coming into this match AJ Styles and Finn Balor knew that they would be in basically a 4 on 2 handicap match against the 3 known members of Superkick Party, Adam Cole and The Bucks, aswell as the leader of Superkick Party who hadn't been announced yet. This man came down into the chamber in a mask and left people still questioning who it was. First to start the match were Matt Jackson and AJ Styles and AJ knew that he needed to work hard so he can even the odds as quick as possible so it came as no surprise when AJ quickly put Matt away with the Styles Clash and stood waiting for the next member. The next to enter would be the Cruiserweight Champion himself Adam Cole and it was more of an even contest until Finn Balor entered and it was 2 on 1 on Adam Cole and he was put away by Finn Balor with the Coupe De Grace meaning we would have a new Cruiserweight Champion. Nick Jackson would enter next and immediately took out AJ Styles with a Superkick and left it temporarily 1 on 1 and he actually managed to roll up Finn for the 3 count only to turn around into a Styles Clash leaving it one on one. When the 5 minutes is up, the masked man enters the match and stands in the ring across from AJ Styles and the fans would go crazy when he removed his mask to reveal that it was former Evolve champion KENNY OMEGA. The fans excitement is soon turned to anger however as somehow The Bucks have managed to make their way back into the chamber and nail him with double superkicks while Omega just looks on smiling. He lifts Styles up and low blows him before nailing him with a Styles Clash to add more salt to the wounds. Kenny Omega is the new Cruiserweight Champion in a 93 A match.</p><p> </p><p>

After her Queen Of The Ring victory, Alexa Bliss wanted to challenge Nia Jax tonight but when she mad these intentions clear, she was attacked from behind by Dana Brooke and this led to this match tonight. In a 77 B contest Alexa would pick up a convincing victory over Brooke with the Twisted Bliss.</p><p> </p><p>

Aiden English was released in his first WWE run after it turned out in my save he had no chemistry with Gotch as partners and while I wanted to push him, he would pick up an injury that sadly ended his career. However he returned a couple of weeks ago and announced that he is the manager of a brand new tag team and he challenged Hermanos Enmascarados to a tag team match here. This new team would turn out be The Authors Of Pain, Akam and Rezar, and in a 93 A they would absolutely destroy the Luchadors who got little to no offense in.</p><p>

Aiden English grabbed a microphone after the match and said that these are the two most dominant people in WWE history and that no one can stop them.</p><p> </p><p>

We have had 2 big debuts already and we would see a 3rd here when former NXT Tag Team Champion and ROH World Champion Blake would make his return to the WWE. Blake and Murphy had a jobbers run last time they were in WWE but after a ROH World Title run and him getting himself over, he returns without his brother as a singles star and he would make his debut tonight against Colt Cabana. In an 82 B, Blake would make a winning return to WWE when he defeated Cabana with a Frog Splash. I don't have world title plans for Blake like ROH but he should be a solid midcarder/upper midcarder for us.</p><p> </p><p>

The 2nd of 3 tag team matches tonight saw the Tag Team Titles on the line as The Price Is Right defended their titles against the team of Joe Hendry and Joe Coffey. In a 95 A* match The Price Is Right would retain their Tag Team Titles when Eric Price pinned Joe Hendry with the Gutwrench Powerbomb to keep the titles they have held since the night after Summerslam.</p><p>

Originally I had plans for a stable next year with Cole Galloway, Joe Hendry, Joe Coffey and Noam Dar but Cole Galloway suffered an unknown illness and it will keep him out for 11 months so when I saw Hendry's contract to an end I decided not to renew and this will his last match here in the WWE. I still like Coffey and will keep him around but Hendry hasn't impressed me in this save and he will more than likely got one of our big three rivals in ROH, Evolve or TNA and if he impresses there he may come back.</p><p> </p><p>

In one of the worst matches on the card Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect would defend their Trios Tag Titles in a 79 B against The Kingdom Of Dreams and Prospect. G,D & P would retain their titles aswell when King Cody defeated Greg Thomas with the Cross Rhodes. Not surprised it did badly as all 3 teams are heels but I haven't done much with Prospect lately and Kingdom Of Dreams had their rematch clause for the titles after they lost them at Survivor Series.</p><p> </p><p>

In an 80 B former women's Champion Naomi would take on Nia Jax in an attempt to become a 2 time champion after her recent face turn. She would be unsuccessful however like many before her as she was forced to tap out to the Bear Hug and Nia's 1 year 1 month dominant reign as Women's champion continued.</p><p> </p><p>

The new United States Champion Tommaso Ciampa would make his first defense of the US Title tonight when he took on Jake Carter and in an amazing 94 A he would retain his championship when he avoided Carter's Avalanche and was able to hit a Project Ciampa and pick up the victory and make his first defense.</p><p> </p><p>

After Jason Jordan's shock return at Survivor Series, when he returned to save former tag team partner and enemy Chad Gable, he would team up with Gable to take on the team of The Greatest and The A-Lister as American Alpha reunited for the first time. Gable was hesitant to team with Jordan after that 8 month spell when JJ went crazy but Jordan said that break he took helped him remember who he really was and Gable had to trust him to try and get revenge on the man who took his Global Championship, Austin Aries. In a 95 A* he would get his revenge when American Alpha defeated the team of The Miz and Austin Aries with the Grand Amplitude earning both men a future Global Championship opportunity and the two looked on the same page once again.</p><p> </p><p>

The main event of the night was an Elimination Chamber match for the World Heavyweight Championship as Johnny Mundo made his first defense inside the structure as his punishment from Edge who was furious that Triple H had ruined the main event and gifted Mundo a championship. He also made it so that Morrison would have to be in the chamber from the very start so he would have to beat 5 other men to retain his title. Those 5 men would be Cesaro, CM Punk, Kassius Ohno, Kazuchika Okada and former champion Apollo Crews. It would be Mundo and Punk who started off the match and Punk who was looking to become an 8 time world champ go the advantage right from the start and almost put Mundo away by making him submit to the Anaconda Vise but Mundo managed to escape. The attention would be diverted from Mundo however when Punk's former rival Kassius Ohno entered the match and went right for the Straight Edge superstar. He would be the first eliminated however when Punk hit him with the GTS and got the 3 count. He was immediately jumped by Mundo who had been lying possum while Ohno and Punk were brawling and he nailed Punk with a superkick and went for a Starship Pain only for Punk's tag partner Cesaro to pull him out of the way when he entered into the match. The two double teamed on Mundo for a while and Cesaro even hit The Neutralizer on Mundo only for him to kick out just before the 3. Kazuchika Okada would enter the match next and try to help out Mundo and it turned into a 2 on 2 situation that quickly came 2 on 1 again but this time it was after Punk was eliminated by Okada with The Rainmaker. The double team was now on Cesaro only for Mundo to quickly turn on Okada, hit a superkick and a Starship Pain to get the 3rd elimination of the match. Finally Crews would enter the match and while he didn't get his change at revenge against Okada, he would be able to get his hands on Mundo and beat down on him and set him up for the Standing Moonsault only for him to get rolled up by Cesaro who returned to the match and he eliminated Crews. This left it down to former WWE Champion Cesaro and current World Heavyweight Champion Johnny Mundo and they would fight for the next two minutes before Mundo hit the Starship Pain one last time and eliminated the Swiss Superman and walked out still the World Champion. </p><p>

This match was MOTN with a 96 A* which is to be expected with amazing talent in the ring like these guys and the show overall got a 94 A* which was good to see and we get on towards Wrestlemania now with the first stop being the Royal Rumble.</p><p> </p><p>

Yearly awards:</p><p> </p><p>

Wrestler Of The Year: Kassius Ohno-1-WWE-This one really surprised me as he's only held a tag team championship for 2 months of this year and not done much else but every match he is always great so it's good to see him win it and I may give him a huge push in the future.</p><p> </p><p>

Company Of The Year: WWE-15-Not surprised here at all as I've never lost this in this save so far.</p><p> </p><p>

Team Of The Year: The Wyatt's, Bray Wyatt and Taylor Rotunda-1-WWE-Another that surprised me as a lot of Tag Teams have had a solid year and while these 2 won the first ever McMahon Tag Team Classic, Bray hasn't been seen since Summerslam when he lost to Triple H and had to leave the company.</p><p> </p><p>

Match Of The Year: The Wrestling Kings d. Dashing and Perfect-WWE-100 A*-Smackdown February 2020-This is probably a main reason why Ohno won WOTY as this was a great match and The Wrestling Kings were one of the best teams I've ever had in TEW and that's saying something as I've had some great ones.</p><p> </p><p>

Show Of The Year: Wrestlemania 36-WWE-100 A*-I expected this to win as it was another successful Mania' and while the two before it were better, this was still a great show and also fun to book as well.</p><p> </p><p>

Young Wrestler Of The Year: Jerry Bowman-1-WWE-Bowman really turned up this year. He beat Shinsuke Nakamura, Triple H, John Cena to win the IC Title, Dolph Ziggler and many more and while we will never see an end to his feud with Conor McGregor as McGregor left, he is sure to have a huge year again next year and at only 24 years old, he has a hell of a future ahead of him.</p><p> </p><p>

Veteran Wrestler Of The Year: Jeff Hardy-1-WWE-As he comes towards the end of his WWE Career, Hardy has really turned it up this year and while his feud with Matt was average, he had great feuds with CM Punk, John Morrison and Dolph Ziggler which shows he can still go here.</p><p> </p><p>

Female Wrestler Of The Year: Bayley-1-WWE-Surprised by this one as I expected Nia to win it for the 3rd time but I guess Bayley has consistently put on great matches with everyone including Nia herself when they got the first ever 100 A* Womens match while Nia had a lot of worse defenses towards the end against Naomi, Ember Moon all which were good but not great like Bayley's.</p><p> </p><p>

Most Improved Company: Evolve-1-They really upped their game this year and became part of a 4 way domination at the top of Wrestling and while them and TNA are a long way behind WWE and ROH, they look like they could start to mount a challenge if they can just get a few more stars.</p><p> </p><p>

Independent Wrestler of the Year: Shark Boy-1</p><p> </p><p>

Manager Of The Year: Johnel Sanders-3-DDT/Osaka Pro</p><p> </p><p>

Announcer Of The Year: Curtiss Landry-1-WWE-This guy is the future of the announce teams for WWE as he is 22 and absolutely amazing so it's great to see him pick up this award</p><p> </p><p>

Colour Commentator of the year: Tamuramaro Yasuda-3-NXT-Very good colour commentator and will be called up after Wrestlemania to sadly replace Mauro Ranallo on the Raw announce team as he is leaving when his contract expires</p><p> </p><p>

Ref of the Year: Hidekazu-1-AJPW/DDT</p><p> </p><p>

Another thing to note is Bayley came 18th in the power rankings which is the highest a woman has ever got in TEW for me.</p>

<p>"The Road to Wrestlemania starts right here at the Royal Rumble in San Antonio and tonight we see two huge world title matches, the dominant Nia Jax defends her Women's Championship in a Triple Threat and we of course have the legendary Royal Rumble match where anyone can enter and the winner goes on to main event Wrestlemania. Up first however The Underground are issuing an open challenge for the Intercontinental Tag Team Championships"</p><p> </p><p>

The Underground come down to the ring smiling and looking smug as ever since they won the belts they've beaten every tag team there is to beat. Because of this they issued an open challenge to any new or returning team to come and challenge them for the titles. They wait for a while until the lights go out leaving everyone. They come back on. IT'S BRAY WYATT AND TAYLOR ROTUNDA! Bray Wyatt is back and he could become a 2 time IC Tag Champion with his brother in his first night back after he had to leave WWE when he lost to Triple H in the main event of Summerslam because of these 2 men.</p><p> </p><p>

The match itself turned out to be the best match of the night with a 99 A* and The Underground were certainly not expecting this as they tried to cheat to a victory every chance they got. Despite this, Taylor Rotunda managed to take out Frankie Daniels with a Spear on the outside of the ring while inside it Bray caught Fish with a Sister Abigail to pick up the victory and the Wyatt's become 2 time IC Tag Champions.</p><p>

Post match Bray grabs a microphone and says "Triple H, you took everything from me. My WWE Championship, these IC Tag Team Championships last year and you got your new friends involved to cost me my job at Summerslam because you knew fine well that I would destroy you. Anyway Shane needed some help and gave me a call and now I'm going to take everything from you, which I started by taking these championships. Next I'm going to make sure that every single one of your friends are destroyed so much that they'll be scared to even align with you anymore and then after that Hunter, I'm going to take your whole career and you can bow down to the eater of worlds. You've made a grave mistake Hunter and you will pay."</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that up with a 79 B as Shiima Xion took on Prince Puma for the Light Heavyweight Championship after he won a number one contenders battle royal to get this match. He would be unsuccessful however as Prince Puma would put him away with the Double Moonsault and make another defense of his title.</p><p> </p><p>

We see a backstage segment where Apollo Crews is hyping his chances in the Royal Rumble!</p><p> </p><p>

He says "I won the US Championship, tag titles and World Heavyweight Championship all in the same night and instead of trying to get help to keep them, I turned everyone away. Shibata, Okada and most importantly the fans and it cost me big time. I got too cocky and at Survivor Series I lost it all. I was unable to regain my title at the Elimination Chamber and now there is only one thing I can do and that is enter the Royal Rumble, win the Royal Rumble and the champion I will face is Johnny Mundo. After that I will regain my championship and in the process get my revenge on Mundo and Triple H after I was screwed out. I may be entering at number one but I am walking out of this Royal Rumble the winner and main eventing Wrestlemania"</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that with an 83 B+ when Hiroshi Tanahashi took on Elgin and Elgin would continue his large run of momentum when he put Tanahashi away with the Revolution Elgin Bomb. I needed someone to put Elgin over and Tanahashi is 2nd in my declining stars list, struggling in ring and can't go long so I'm going to use him to put people over from now on starting here where he put over 'The Unbreakable' Elgin.</p><p> </p><p>

Tommaso Ciampa would be in action up next as he defended his United States Title against Luke Harper who has repeatedly attacked Ciampa whether it be post match or backstage but he has looked to gain an advantage in this match. It worked as well with Ciampa coming in bandaged up and the underdog here but somehow he managed to roll up Harper and retain his title in an 82 B.</p><p> </p><p>

After American Alpha beat The Greatest and The A-Lister at Elimination Chamber, it meant that both Chad Gable and Jason Jordan got opportunities at Austin Aries title and tonight we would see Chad Gable go for his rematch. In the middle of the match the referee took a bump and went down and AA would look to capitalize on the situation by grabbing a chair but as he raised the chair to hit Gable with it Jason Jordan slid into the ring and grabbed it out of his hands and hit The Miz with it who also tried to enter into the fray. Jordan escaped from the attempted attack from Aries but the distraction allowed Gable to capitalize and he rolled him up only to get a 2 count. Gable would eventually be put away however when 'The Greatest man that ever lived' made him tap out to the Last Chancery and AA retained his Global Championship in a 94 A.</p><p> </p><p>

With Triple H now controlling the whole of Smackdown (now Lucha Underground) he has been extremely lenient towards his own stars so after Alberto El Patron and Shinsuke Nakamura were arguing over who should be the number one contender to the European Championship, Hunter would give El Patron the shot here to regain the title that he lost to Jimmy Fatu. This time he would go up against Fatu's brother Jey Uso for the title. In an 81 B El Patron would become a 2 time European Champion when Jey Uso was distracted by his brother Jimmy Fatu and he turned around and got caught in the Rolling Cross Arm Breaker and was forced to tap out and lose his title.</p><p> </p><p>

Jimmy Fatu grabs a microphone post match and says "When I lost to you at Survivor Series, the stipulation was that I couldn't get another shot at the European Championship but you between me and you it was never about the European Championship for me. I just want you gone for good and out of my spotlight because I was always the star but you were always given the attention. Remember that time at school when I was the most intelligent of us both, the fastest, the strongest but you were always the one that our parents loved the most. I want you gone so at Wrestlemania we will have one more match, it will be a TLC match and the loser will have to leave Smackdown and go to Monday Night Raw."</p><p> </p><p>

Following that the Women's United States Championship would be on the line when Liv Morgan would defend her title against Mia Jade who would get her first shot at the belt here. The match got a 92 A as Mia Jade put up a good fight but the numbers game would catch up to her as she was distracted the whole match by Summer Rae, Peyton Royce and Sasha Banks and Banks would lead to Liv winning when she hit Jade with the Living Hell and retained her title.</p><p> </p><p>

Post match we would see another promo for the Royal Rumble, this time from The Shield's Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Seth says "2020 will be the year of The Shield. Dean holds the WWE Championship, Roman holds the MITB briefcase and tonight we not only walk out the new Trios Tag Champions but either me or Roman walk out with the Royal Rumble victory and The Shield will stand tall over the whole of the WWE." </p><p>

Roman Says "Believe in the Shield".</p><p> </p><p>

After their debut last month at the Elimination Chamber, The Authors Of Pain have destroyed jobbers and when they requested better competition they were presented with this match here tonight against former WWE Tag Team Champions The Von Erich's. In a 91 A The Authors would pick up another dominant victory here when they put away Ross Von Erich with The Final Chapter and they remained unbeaten.</p><p> </p><p>

Last month at No Way Out we had an Elimination Chamber match to crown a new Intercontinental Champion and the winner would eventually be Matt Patterson. On the next episode of Lucha Underground, we would have a 5 way match between the other 5 men in the match to determine who the number one contendership and the victory from that match would go to Rusev when he made Tanahashi pass out to The Accolade. This meant that tonight Rusev would get the chance to defeat a former rival and win the IC Championship but in an 88 B+ he wouldn't succeed as Patterson put him away with The One Percenter and he retained his new championship.</p><p> </p><p>

The next match was an important one as it saw 4 members of Lucha Underground (Matanza, Pentagon Jr., Cage and Braun Strowman) taking on Bulletproof (Anderson & Gallows, Sean Finlay & Kevin Owens). If the 4 members of LU lost then they would have to leave the WWE but if Bulletproof lost then they would have to all go their separate ways and Bulletproof would be no longer. In a 79 B LU would pick up the victory when Pentagon JR literally broke the arm of Luke Gallows forcing the ref to call the match off.</p><p> </p><p>

We now see last year's Royal Rumble winner Dolph Ziggler cutting a promo on how he will win again. </p><p>

He says "Last year should have been my year and it looked that way when I won the Royal Rumble and would go on to main event Wrestlemania. I then went on to beat Kalisto at Fastlane but it all went wrong with the loss to CM Punk and since then it's been a downhill decline for the show and I was recently turned on by my friend and manager Paul Heyman who aligned himself with Neville and now I'm in one of the worse runs of my WWE Career but tonight I have the chance to turn everything around. Tonight, I go out there, win the rumble for a 2nd time and go into the main event of Wrestlemania strong again and this time I walk out as the World Heavyweight Champion"</p><p> </p><p>

There was a fatal 4 way up next for the Cruiserweight Championship when Kenny Omega made his first defense of his title against Adam Cole, Finn Balor and AJ Styles in a sort of rematch from EC just without the Bucks as Nick Jackson suffered a 3 month injury in that match and Matt lost his opportunity to enter this match against AJ Styles. Towards the end of the match AJ Styles and Kenny Omega were battling outside the ring and Styles got the advantage before placing Omega on the announce table, He rolled back into the ring and hit a 450 splash through the table on Omega as the fans chant "Holy shit". This took both men out of the match and Finn tried to take advantage by going for a Coupe De Grace on Adam Cole only for Cole to move and then Cole rolled up Finn, grabbed the tights and walked out as a 2 time Cruiserweight Champion. Adam Cole becomes the 3rd person tonight to become a 2 time champion after The Wyatt's and Alberto El Patron earlier on in the night.</p><p> </p><p>

We then see another hype video for the Royal Rumble but this time instead of one person talking it is a group of videos of wrestlers hyping their chances.</p><p>

Zack Ryder says "Tonight is the night that I make history and win the Royal Rumble. WOO WOO WOO, You know it!"</p><p>

Kevin Owens says "I have experience in this match, I won the 2019 Royal Rumble and went on to main event Wrestlemania where I beat Sami Zayn to become World Heavyweight Champion. Tonight will be Deja Vu when I walk out with the victory."</p><p>

Blake says "This may be my first Royal Rumble but tonight I outlast everyone and I will main event Wrestlemania and shut up everyone that ever told me I'm too handsome to be a wrestler"</p><p> </p><p>

Earlier tonight we saw a dominant tag team in The Authors Of Pain pick up another victory and up next we saw another one in action when the Tag Team Champion The Price Is Right defended their titles against The Cults Of Personality (Cesaro and CM Punk). In a 91 A, The Price Is Right would pick up the victory when Punk failed to pick up Eric Price for the GTS and was hit with the Gutwrench Powerbomb and Price got the pinfall to retain their Tag Team Championships.</p><p> </p><p>

Nia Jax has been Women's Championship since November 2019 (It's now January 2021) and no one has been able to beat her since she won that belt and she would defend tonight in a triple threat against two women she has beat in that reign, Becky Lynch and Emma. It looked like we would see a new women's champion in this match when Emma and Becky teamed up to take down Nia and they put her through the announce table with a powerbomb and then fought each other in the ring. Becky got the Dis-Arm-Her on Emma but just as Emma looked she was going to tap, Nia Jax grabbed Becky Lynch from behind and hit an absolutely vicious German Suplex on her, pinned her and picked up the victory to retain her Women's Championship as both Emma and Becky were left flat out in the middle of the ring as once again Nia proves dominant.</p><p> </p><p>

After their domination of the three members of Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect inside of the Elimination Chamber at No Way Out, The Shield got a shot at the Trios Tag Titles against Tyler Breeze, King Cody and Tye Dillinger. This match would be so much better than Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect's last defense as this time they got a 97 A* and it was an exceptional match. G,D & P would pick up the victory this time when Cody Rhodes escaped Dean Ambrose's Dirty Deeds and hit him with a Cross Rhodes to pick up the victory and retain their Trios Titles.</p><p> </p><p>

Up next would be the semi main event and it would be the Royal Rumble match itself as I don't like putting it on last because it doesn't get high enough match ratings.</p><p> </p><p>

Entering in at number one was already known and it was former World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Crews and he was joined in the ring by his former partner and current rival, Kazuchika Okada. They would fight until number 3 enter which was former TV Champion Aaron Clark Hunter (ACH) and he actually came close to eliminating Okada but he was quickly thrown out by the 4th entrant Enzo Amore. Enzo went straight for former rival Apollo Crews and him and Okada double teamed on Crews until at number 5 we hear "Holla if you hear me" and the fans go mad (hopefully) as Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner makes a surprise return in the Royal Rumble. Steiner hit Enzo Amore with a Big Poppa Powerbomb and took out Okada and Crews with clotheslines. Elgin enter the match at number 6 and immediately went straight for Steiner and clotheslined him and then threw him out of the ring to boos from the crowd. After that Kazuchika Okada was thrown out of the ring by Crews as Crews got revenge on the man that turned on him. Number 7 to enter was the return of Moose after he was injured by Luke Harper before Summerslam. No was eliminated before number 8 entered and that would be the Raw Money In the Bank holder Neville who came down to the ring with his new manager Paul Heyman and he went straight for Elgin who was on a tear through everyone. Elgin beat down on Neville only to be attacked from behind by Moose who then threw him out of the ring as the man on a huge run of momentum was eliminated. 9 came out to a huge pop as Daniel Bryan made his return to the WWE and the man that won the 2018 Royal Rumble entered the ring followed by Kevin Owens in number 10. Number 11 was also a huge return as we hear "Just close your eyes" as Christian makes a huge return to the WWE here in the Royal Rumble and he goes straight for Daniel Bryan. Number 12 was Kenny Omega as he entered his first ever Royal Rumble match. Christian would be eliminated by the number 13 entrance Blake who smiled as the crowd booed only to then be eliminated by Apollo Crews. number 14 enter and it was former WWE Champion Cesaro but he was almost immediately eliminated by Neville only to escape. Number 15 was another former Royal Rumble winner as AJ Styles entered the match and went straight for Kenny Omega and eliminated the man that he is in a huge feud with. Omega was furious and dived back into the ring and low blowed Styles before Apollo Crews threw him out and Omega and Styles continued to fight to the back. Triple H entered in at number 16 using his new position in power to enter himself into the rumble and he immediately pedigreed his former protege Enzo Amore before throwing him out the rumble. At number 17 Seth Rollins would enter into the match but he was immediately attacked by Daniel Bryan. Number 18 to enter was Sami Zayn and he went straight for former best friend Kevin Owens and Helluva Kicked him but was unable to eliminate him as Cesaro attacked him and stopped KO from being eliminated. However there would be an elimination when Seth Rollins threw Daniel Bryan out to the disarray of the fans. Cesaro's Tag team partner CM Punk entered at number 19 and they teamed up to eliminate Moose from the rumble by throwing him over the top rope. The fans popped hard for number 20 when 'Here comes the money' hit and Shane McMahon came down to the ring, clearly inserting himself into this match when he found out Triple H has entered. He would eliminate Triple H aswell with the help of Cesaro and Punk and H looked furious as Shane McMahon celebrated only to be thrown out of the ring by Apollo Crews who was desperate to win this match. The next entrant, number 21, Zack Ryder would also be eliminated by Crews when he entered, hit a Rough Ryder on Cesaro before being powerbombed over the top rope. Neville was about to be eliminated by Sami Zayn when Paul Heyman got involved and stopped him from being eliminated. However Neville and Heyman's celebrations were cut short when William Regal (Neville's former manager) entered at number 22 and came down to the ring with his brass knuckles. Neville tried to get some offense in by Regal just hit him in the face and threw him out much to the delight of the fans. Number 23 would be Rusev and he would run through all the members still in the match and he eliminated Regal, Cesaro and came close to eliminating Seth Rollins before he was saved by CM Punk and They worked together to get rid of the Bulgarian Brute. Number 24 was a shock to the fans as former NXT Champion Trevor Lee entered the match and went straight for Kevin Owens and he eliminated KO with a big boot off the apron. Number 25 was former NXT Superstar and a former Evolve Champion Angelo Dawkins who made his return to a mixed reaction as he was a heel in Evolve. He would be quickly eliminated by the next entrant as Braun Strowman entered the match and flattened him and a lot of people in the match and then eliminated Dawkins and Trevor Lee. His dominance was stopped by the number 27 entrant Roman Reigns as Reigns joined Rollins in the match by spearing the hell out of Braun and then the two threw him out of the ring before Reigns would eliminate Sami Zayn and Rusev. Number 28 was the new 2 time European Champion Alberto El Patron but he was attacked on his way down into the ring by Jey Uso who rolled him into the ring where he was eliminated by Seth Rollins. Number 29 was a huge return as former light heavyweight and 3 time Cruiserweight champion Johnny Gargano made his return from a 7 month injury and he ran down to the ring. He managed to even get a huge elimination when he helped Apollo Crews eliminate CM Punk before Crews turned on him and threw him over the top rope only for Gargano to skin the cat. Number 30 was last year's winner Dolph Ziggler as he came down to the ring confident and looking to win it 2 years in a row. This left the final 5 with Johnny Gargano, Apollo Crews, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns but that would quickly turn to 3 as Seth Rollins turned on his Shield brother Roman Reigns and threw him over the top rope while he was trying to eliminate Dolph and Seth eliminated the both of them. Apollo Crews had now been in this match for 1 hour and it showed as he was slower and not as strong as the two fresher men in the ring. Despite this Crews was able to eliminate Johnny Gargano and while doing so he managed to break Rey Mysterio's record of the longest time in the Royal Rumble match and it left just him and Seth Rollins. They would fight it out for the next 2 minutes before Seth moved out of the way of Apollo Crews Standing Moonsault and hit the curb stomp on Crews and threw him out of the ring to become the winner of the 2021 Royal Rumble and he will main event Wrestlemania 37 and his Shield brothers joined him in the ring to celebrate his victory and there was a great image of Dean Ambrose holding the WWE Championship, Reigns the MITB briefcase and Seth pointing at the Wrestlemania sign.</p><p>

While this was happening Crews was broken on the outside of the ring. He had went for so long to try and get a chance to regain his championship and he was upset. He may have got the most eliminations in the match and broke the record for lasting the longest (1 Hour, 5 minutes and 4 seconds) but he wanted, no, needed to beat Johnny Mundo to regain his world title and get back to the top. He grabbed a chair and placed it at ringside to watch the main event where Johnny Mundo would defend his World Heavyweight Championship.</p><p> </p><p>

Johnny Mundo would defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Noam Dar in the main event of the Royal Rumble as Dar was fresh of his victory over Damien Sandow at Survivor Series and he looked to win his first World title here in the WWE. In a 98 A* Johnny Mundo would retain his title when he hit Dar with the Superkick and then a Starship pain to retain his World Heavyweight Championship.</p><p> </p><p>

Post match he was celebrating when Apollo Crews rolled into the ring with his chair and smacked Mundo across the back with it and kept hitting him with it. However as Triple H sent down Braun, Matanza and other members of LU to stop him, Crews grabbed the championship and ran off with it through the crowd and the show ends with a picture off him in the crowd holding the title in the air.</p><p> </p><p>

Absolutely great show and I loved writing it so would love some feedback. Thanks for reading.</p>

<p>"Monday Night Raw presents a WWE Network special with the return of Fatal 4 Way with 2 4 way matches and a fatal 4 way tag team match. First up tonight we would see a Fatal 4 Way for the United States Championship"</p><p> </p><p>

The first match of the night was a Fatal 4 Way for the US Championship between Tommaso Ciampa, Luke Harper, Akira Tozawa and Zeshin Ikoma. The match got an 83 B+ and Akira Tozawa had an impressive performance as he almost picked up the victory with a huge Bridging German Suplex on Luke Harper only for Zeshin Ikoma to break it up just before the 2 count. Harper also came close to winning the title when he took down Ikoma with the Discus Clothesline but this time Tozawa would break up the count. The match would end when Tommaso Ciampa put Zeshin Ikoma away with the Project Ciampa to retain his United States Title.</p><p> </p><p>

In a rematch from Wrestlemania 35, Mr Raw Money In The Bank Neville took on former manager and friend William Regal. Neville came down to the ring with his new manager Paul Heyman after Heyman turned on former client Dolph Ziggler in a match for the MITB Briefcase only for Regal to take out Heyman with his Brass Knuckles. Then at the Royal Rumble, Neville would be eliminated by surprise entrant Regal which angered Neville who then took out Regal backstage on the next Raw. This led to Regal demanding that he return to action for the first time in over a year by taking on Neville and they met each other here. In an 81 B, Neville would win the match but by DQ when he went for the Red Arrow, Regal avoided, and he knocked Neville out with the Brass Knuckles so the ref called for a disqualification. </p><p>

Post match Regal put the Knuckles on again and as Neville got to his feet but Heyman got in his way to try and stop him only to get hit with the knuckles himself.</p><p> </p><p>

We followed that up with an 83 B+ as Angelo Dawkins made his Singles PPV debut as he took on young upstart and former Cruiserweight and United States Champion Fred Yehi. It was a face on face match as when Dawkins said he wanted to face some of the best WWE has to offer Fred Yehi challenged him to a match and while he put up a good fight, Dawkins would pick up the victory with 'The Overload'.</p><p> </p><p>

Recently Sami Zayn has been getting into arguments and confrontations with Raw General Manager Edge and it led to two matches being made tonight. Sami managed to convince Edge to give The Assassins another run at the Trios Tag Titles because they were not pinned in their last attempt to gain the titles. This led to an 84 B+ where Gorgeous, Dashing and Perfect took on The Assassins (Xavier Woods, Ryan Sabre and Kenneth Ospreay) for the Trios Tag Titles and they would retain their titles when Perfect 10 Tye Dillinger put away Xavier Woods with the Tye Breaker.</p><p>

Post match the 3 members of The Assassins were getting to their feet when they were all hit with Superkicks from Kenny Omega, Adam Cole and Matt Jackson, Superkick Party. </p><p> </p><p>

The next match was supposed to be Trevor Lee taking on Axel Dieter Jr. but Trevor Lee was injured in a match against Low-Ki on his Raw debut and since he was attacked post match by Axel I made it seem like Axel Dieter Jr. injured him and then Edge forced him to go up against Jay Lethal. In a 92 A Jay Lethal would defeat Axel Dieter with the Lethal Injection. This kind of helped as Lethal is long overdue a push and while I really want to push Trevor Lee (he's injured until after Wrestlemania), Lethal is better and I've underused him for too long.</p><p> </p><p>

Sami Zayn bursts into Edge's office just like he has the past 2 weeks and once again he starts arguing with the General Manager.</p><p> </p><p>

Edge says "Sami, what do you want this time? Shouldn't you be preparing for your match later tonight?"</p><p> </p><p>

Sami says "You know why I'm here Edge. Did you see what just happened out there after the Trios match where my team were clearly cheated out. Anyway after the match my friends were attacked by Superkick Party and I demand justice for them, I want you to suspend them for their actions"</p><p> </p><p>

Edge says "Sami, I understand you're angry but last week you called me a hypocrite when you clearly did the exact same thing that Superkick Party just did when you took on Dolph Ziggler. You beat him up post match and I didn't punish you so I can't go around punishing them when I didn't punish you. Anyway I'll give your friends a chance at revenge when they take on Superkick Party at Fastlane next month and the winner will challenge for the Trios Titles at Wrestlemania"</p><p> </p><p>

Chad Gable had his opportunity for the Global Championship at the Royal Rumble but he was unsuccessful which meant that it was time for Jason Jordan to get his opportunity to take on Austin Aries for the Global Championship. In a 91 A, Austin Aries would retain his title when following interference from The Miz he put Jason Jordan away with a 450 Splash to still walk out as the Global Champion.</p><p> </p><p>

The 2nd fatal 4 way match of the night was a Fatal 4 Way Tag team match when The Price Is Right defended their titles against The Cults Of Personality, The Kingdom Of Dreams (Greg Thomas and Joey Bennett) and The Authors of Pain. The Authors Of Pain took out The Cults Of Personality in this match when they powerbombed them both through announce tables but they were then taken out with double suicide dives from Greg Thomas and Bennett. However when Thomas re-entered the ring he was hit with a Gutwrench Powerbomb and The Price Is Right managed to retain their titles once again in a 94 A.</p><p> </p><p>

After he made his return in the Royal Rumble match, Johnny Gargano wanted to become a 4 time Cruiserweight Champion when he went up against 2 time champion Adam Cole. Both men were fighting in the ring when Sami Zayn's music hit and he came down to ringside and started trying to distract Adam Cole. He would inadvertently cost Johnny Gargano however as the referee was focused on him when Gargano rolled up Cole for a 3 count but the ref missed this. Gargano would then be furious at Sami Zayn only to turn around into a Superkick and then hitting the Florida Key to retain his Cruiserweight Championship. Gargano looks furious as it's over while Sami Zayn's plan to cost Adam Cole failed.</p><p> </p><p>

After Nia Jax retained her title in a triple threat against Emma and Becky Lynch at the Royal Rumble, Becky Lynch defeated Emma to become Number one contender to the Women's Championship and she would once again take on Nia Jax here despite her never ever beating Nia Jax but she would once again try to take the title from Nia. She failed to do so once again when she lost by countout when Nia Jax Samoan dropped Becky Lynch through the Spanish and American announce tables in a 91 A.</p><p> </p><p>

The semi main event was a 91 A when Apollo Crews tried to continue his redemption story by taking on Kazuchika Okada when he was denied a shot at the World Heavyweight Title as he hadn't earned one. He would look to get himself back into the title picture when he took on Okada here but he would also want to get revenge on the man who Crews claimed cost him his whole downfall when he turned on him in the tag team championship match against The Price Is Right. He would get his revenge when he defeated Kazuchika Okada with a Sitout powerbomb.</p><p>

Post match he grabbed a microphone and he said "Have I done enough yet Edge? Actually you know what, I already know the answer because I can't expect a title shot from one win but I will work my way back up..." He is cut off by Johnny Mundo smacking him in the back with a chair in a similiar way to what Apollo Crews did last month at the Royal Rumble. He grabs the microphone off the floor and simply says "You will never defeat me Crews, I am far superior and even when you get your shot, you will lose".</p><p> </p><p>

The main event was a Fatal 4 Way for the World Heavyweight Championship when Johnny Mundo would defend his title against the returning Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler and Sami Zayn. As I said earlier Sami has been forcing Edge into giving him shots and he was added into this match after Bryan, Ziggler and Mundo were originally meant to battle in a triple threat but Sami managed to worm his way into this match and made it a Fatal 4 Way. Sami would come close to winning the championship when he had Mundo set up for a Helluva Kick but as he ran for it he was hit with a spear out of nowhere from Johnny Gargano who was getting revenge on Sami for costing him the Cruiserweight Championship by attacking Sami. Mundo capitalized on this by hitting a Starship Pain on Sami Zayn and retaining his World Heavyweight Championship in an 89 A.</p><p> </p><p>

Sami Zayn is furious after Johnny Gargano cost him the match.</p><p> </p><p>

He says "EDGE, get your ass out here now and restart this match because I was screwed out of this match by this idiot who thinks he can get away with whatever he wants. You know what Edge, I'm sick of your favoritism for everyone in this company that you like rather than for people who deserve opportunities like myself. You are a terrible general manager and anyone could do a better job than you're doing so I want you out of this company. I am going to go to Shane McMahon and I'm going to make sure that he does what is best for business and gets rid of you as general manager"</p><p> </p><p>

He drops the microphone but as he turns around he is hit with a Spear from Edge and Edge stands over Sami Zayn as the screen fades to black.</p><p> </p><p>

In other news, NXT just put on their best ever match when Pierre Marceau defeated Mitchell Lewis in a 93 A rated match.</p>

<p>"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the last Smackdown PPV before Wrestlemania. Tonight we see a Tag Team rematch for the Intercontinental Tag Team Championships between The Wyatt's and The Underground while we see the final match between King Cody and Dean Ambrose and Cody has the advantage heading into this match after pinning Dean Ambrose at the Royal Rumble"</p><p> </p><p>

Up first the European Championship would be on the line when Alberto El Patron would defend his title in a Fatal 4 Way against Jey Uso, Jimmy Fatu and Shinsuke Nakamura. Uso and Fatu still have their loser leaves Lucha Underground match at Wrestlemania but tonight both men would try to become 2 time European Champion while Shinsuke Nakamura still wants revenge on El Patron for turning on Team WWE at Survivor Series. Alberto El Patron would retain his title after Jimmy Fatu superkicked Jey Uso then Patron threw him out of the ring and locked in the Cross Arm-Breaker on Jey Uso who had to tap out. The match got an 88 B+ and while El Patron is celebrating he turns around only to be hit with a KINSHASA from Shinsuke Nakamura who then holds the European Championship in the air.</p><p> </p><p>

We then followed that with an 81 B as former Tag Team Champions Sean Finlay and Cody Hall collided in the ring for the first time. They went their separate ways after they dropped their Tag Team titles as they wanted to pursue singles championships and while Finlay won the European Championship, Hall was not able to do so and this annoyed him so when Finlay had a number one contendership opportunity for the IC Championship, Hall was pissed so he cost him the match. This would lead to them meeting here and while Hall came down to the ring accompanied by Scott Hall like he usually does, Finlay was accompanied to the ring by his father, Finlay, to ensure that he wouldn't be cheated in this match. Cody Hall would try to cheat but Finlay would pick up the victory when he put Hall away with the Air Raid Crash.</p><p> </p><p>

Prince Puma would defend his Light Heavyweight Championship up next as he defended it against former TV Champion Aaron Clark Hunter who was looking to regain momentum after a year long injury. He would be unable to do so however as in an 89 A, Puma would retain his title with the Double Moonsault.</p><p> </p><p>

Paris Youngblood would return to the ring for the first time in a couple of months up next as he made his return from injury to take on former WWE Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi who hasn't won a match since he returned from rehab and that would continue here in an 83 B+ when Youngblood picked up the victory. </p><p>

Tanahashi then grabbed a microphone and announced that he was leaving the WWE to try and try and rebuild himself to the same person that won the WWE Championship in his debut match. Basically his contract is running out and I'm not renewing it.</p><p> </p><p>

In a 78 B, Elgin would go up against Gene Monson as Monson tried to put an end to the run of Elgin who no one seems to be able to stop right now. Monson would put up a great fight as the 320 lbs, 6 foot 8 monster threw Elgin around the ring like he was a cruiserweight but somehow Elgin was able to put Monson away with the Revolution Elgin Bomb and continue his huge run of momentum.</p><p> </p><p>

The Intercontinental Title would be on the line up next as in a 77 B, the worst rating on the show, Matt Patterson would defend the Championship against Vilhelm Berg who claimed that Patterson had cheated his way to victory in the Elimination Chamber and he would prove it tonight. He would not as Patterson easily put him away with the One Percenter to retain his title.</p><p>

He would be celebrating when he was attacked from behind by the aforementioned Elgin who for the second time tonight hit the Revolution Elgin Bomb before raising the IC Championship in the air as the show goes to a commercial.</p><p> </p><p>

In a number one contendership match for the IC Tag Team Championships LuchaGore took on The Detroit Machine Guns for the chance to face either The Wyatt's or The Underground at Wrestlemania. In a great 99 A* it would be LuchaGore that picked up the victory when Rhyno Gored Alex Shelley following a Salida Del Sol from Kalisto. Absolutely phenomenal match considering Rhyno is 46 years old and Kalisto is an opener.</p><p> </p><p>

AJ Lee would have an opportunity at the Women's United States Title up next as she took on Liv Morgan who claimed that no one in the WWE can defeat her but Lee claims that she has what it takes to become a 2 time Women's US Champion. She would come close but Liv would manage to put her away with the Liv Or Die once again following interference from The New BFF's in a 92 A rated match.</p><p> </p><p>

The second tag team match of the night would also get a 99 A* as The Wyatt's made the first defense of their newly won IC Tag Championships as The Underground got their rematches for the titles after they lost them at the Royal Rumble. They would come close to winning the championships back when Daniels hit Taylor Rotunda with a Tomikaze only for Bray to break up the pinfall at 2. The Wyatt's would retain their titles when Bray threw Daniels into a spear from Rotunda and he picked up the pinfall victory as they retained the titles.</p><p>

They were celebrating their victory when they were attacked from behind by Matanza, Braun Strowman and The Underground and they beat down on the two. However they would be cut off by the music of Shane McMahon as he returned for the first time since Survivor Series. </p><p>

He says "Stop the attack, stop. I have a proposition for Triple H. Hunter, it's no secret that I want you gone from the WWE and it's pretty clear that you want me gone but you also want your company back so I'm here to issue you a challenge. Just like at Survivor Series we will have a 5 on 5 elimination match but this time it will be at Wrestlemania and if my team wins then I get full control over Smackdown again but if your team wins then you get 49% control over the company. I'll give you time to think of your answer but think wisely because you could lose it all at Wrestlemania"</p><p> </p><p>

We would then have our main event as Dean Ambrose would once again defend his title against King Cody after Cody pinned him in the 3 on 3 match at the Royal Rumble. This would lead to us getting our first 100 A* match of the year as both men have great chemistry as opponents which boosted the match. Cody came milliseconds away from winning the title when he put Ambrose down with the Cross Rhodes but Dean managed to get his foot on the rope just as the ref was about to call the 3 count. Cody furiously lifted him up and went for a Cross Rhodes only for Dean to escape and hit a Dirty Deeds 1,2,No. Somehow Rhodes managed to kick out and Ambrose looked furious. He lifted Rhodes to his feet and started headbutting him multiple times before planting him with a second Dirty Deeds to win the match and retain his WWE Championship.</p><p>

Dean Ambrose is celebrating his victory and The Shield join him in the ring after another successful title defense.</p><p>

However from out of nowhere Roman Reigns takes out Seth Rollins with a Superman Punch and Dean looks on in shock. Dean goes straight for Roman Reigns but he ducks out of the way, rebounds off the rope and lays Dean Ambrose out with a spear. He calls a referee down to the ring and hands him his Money In The Bank briefcase. Dean gets up to his feet and he gets hit from another Spear and Roman Reigns gets the 3 count. We have a new WWE Champion.</p><p> </p><p>

Reigns is celebrating when he turns around and gets a kick to the gut from Seth Rollins who then lays him out with a Curb Stomp before raising the WWE Championship above his head while pointing at the Wrestlemania sign.</p><p> </p><p>

The show itself got a 96 A* and I hope you enjoyed reading it because I've looked forward to booking the final angle for so long and I've loved booking the whole show aswell.</p><p> </p><p>

Finally in other news, Charlotte has given birth to a baby girl and Jay Briscoe ended the 1 and a half year reign of Danny Duggan as ROH World Champion on a random episode of ROH.</p>
