merrykieran2 Posted January 13, 2017 Author Share Posted January 13, 2017 It's been almost a month since I posted an update here because I've started a great new ROH Save and only recently have I got back into this save but anyway we have the final PPV before Wrestlemania 37 in Raw's Fastlane. We started off with an 80 B as Adam Cole defended his Cruiserweight Championship against Rich Swann who is unbeaten so far since he made his debut here in the WWE. It was a very back and force contest before Adam Cole hit the Florida Key on Swann and retained his Cruiserweight Championship. Post match Cole was celebrating when the lights went out and when they came back on, standing behind Adam Cole was Finn Balor and for the first time in over 2 years Demon Finn Balor was back and he went straight for Adam Cole hit a slingblade, climbed to the top rope and lay him out with a Coupe De Grace on Cole before raising the Cruiserweight Championship in the air and pointing at the Wrestlemania sign. The next match was a major match as Matt Hardy took on Jeff Hardy in a Career vs Career match as their rivalry will come to an end tonight and so will one of their careers. This match also got an 80 B but neither man would have to retire as 5 minutes into their match they were beaten down in a 2 on 2 attack from The Authors Of Pain while they were directed by their manager Aiden English. Alexa Bliss once again called out the Women's Champion Nia Jax the night after the Royal Rumble but this time she was attacked by Allysin Kay who she defeated to become the Queen Of The Ring and she also gave Kay her first loss here in the WWE since she debuted. So now in a 77 B she took on Kay and just like last time she would pick up the victory but only with a roll up never the less it was a victory though for Bliss. We followed that with a rematch from Fatal 4 Way as William Regal took on his former client Neville who once again was accompanied by Paul Heyman for this No Holds Barred match. Neville wanted his hands on Regal after Regal got himself disqualified in their last match by using the Brass Knuckles but Regal would only accept this stipulation. In a 78 B Mr MITB Neville would pick up the victory after Paul Heyman wiped out Regal with Regal's own Brass Knuckles leading to Neville walking out victorious. That was followed by a 6 man tag for the number one contendership to the 6 man tag titles between Superkick Party (Kenny Omega, Adam Cole & Matt Jackson) vs The Assassins (Xavier Woods & Sabre and Ospreay) and whichever team won would go for the 6 man titles at Wrestlemania. In an 88 B+ Superkick Party would pick up the victory when Adam Cole got his second victory of the night after he pinned Xavier Woods with the Florida Key. This was meant to be Cole and The Young Bucks but Nick is currently injured and will just be back in time for Wrestlemania. In another 87 B+ Nia Jax would defend her Women's Championship against Emma once again but even Emma was doubting herself going into this one because Nia Jax is just completely unbeatable and has been since she won the Women's title back at Survivor Series 2019. That would once again continue here as she made the 23rd defense of her title by beating Emma after she hit a huge German Suplex of the top rope into a Leg Drop led to her picking up the win. Nia Jax is celebrating her victory when Alexa Bliss rolls into the ring and stands in front of her. It's a complete mismatch however as we have the 5 foot 105 lbs Alexa Bliss standing next to 6 foot 240 lbs Nia Jax. Alexa points at the Women's Championship and then at the Wrestlemania sign but Nia just laughs and pushes her to the ground before walking off with her Womens championship. After this Sami Zayn walks into Edge's office and Edge just sighs and says "What Now?" Sami says "Edge, my friend you saw what my friends did out there. They were screwed by that stupid Kenny Omega who clearly shouldn't be able to compete in two matches like he is. I want you to cancel my match with Johnny Gargano and I should replace him in the Number one Contendership match because it's unfair on me who deserves a shot and him because he will be at a disadvantage in that match so what do you say?" Edge says "Sami, I'm sick of this, really I am so get out of my office before I call security. Also Sami your match against Gargano is now up next so get the hell out of there" Sami Zayn vs Johnny Gargano would have the second best match of the night as in an incredible 96 A* Johnny Gargano would pick up the victory. Sami had Johnny set up for the Helluva Kick in the corner when Edge's music hit and he came out onto the ramp distracting Sami Zayn. Sami ignored Edge but as he went for the Helluva Kick Gargano moved out of the way and rolled up Sami Zayn to pick up the victory. After the match Sami was furious and he started shouting at Edge to come down into the ring but as he went to do so the owner Shane McMahon's music hit and he said "Edge, I made you the general manager because I thought you could cope with out it seems that you can not. So here's whats going to happen. At Wrestlemania Edge you have two choices: 1. You quit as general manager and I find myself someone else for Raw or 2. You have one last match against Sami Zayn at Wrestlemania and if you win then Sami is fired but if you lose then Sami takes your job as the Raw general manager." We followed that with a 90 A as the Global Championship was on the line and Austin Aries defended his title against AJ Styles. Austin Aries would lock in the Last Chancery on AJ Styles but for some reason Aries' partner Miz got on the apron and distracted the referee meaning he missed AJ Styles tapping out. Aries realised what happened and rolled out the ring going after Miz who ran up the ramp. He rolled back into the ring and went for a clothesline on Styles who ducked and hit a Pele Kick on Aries, picked him up and hit a Styles Clash on Aries. We have a new Global Champion and it's AJ Styles after he defeated The Greatest Man That Ever Lived. Post match he was celebrating with the title when he was attacked from behind by Kenny Omega who then beat him down before walking back up the ramp with AJ's newly won title. In the match of the night, American Alpha challenged The Price Is Right for the Tag Team Championships and in a 97 A* they came close to winning the tag titles when they hit Ted Dibiase with the Grand Amplitude only for Eric Price to wipe out the referee with a vicious clothesline. Him and Dibiase threw Jordan out the ring before beating down on Gable in a 2 on 1 attack and Price hit Gable with the Gutwrench Powerbomb as another referee counted the 3 count and they retained their tag team titles. The semi main event was a huge 6 pack challenge with the winner going on to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship between Noam Dar, Kazuchika Okada, Apollo Crews, Damien Sandow, Kenny Omega and Tommy End. The match got an 88 B+ and it was a wild match which could have gone either way. Kenny Omega looked like he would pick up the victory when he hit his finisher on Damien Sandow only to be dragged out of the ring by AJ Styles who returned after the beat down earlier on and he threw Omega into the barricade and grabbed his title back from ringside before walking off. Meanwhile Tommy End slid into the ring and went for the cover on Sandow only for Sandow to kick out at 2 and the match continued on. It would be Apollo Crews who picked up the victory and have the chance at revenge on Johnny Mundo (If Mundo retains in the main event) at Wrestlemania when he defeated Damien Sandow with the Spinout Powerbomb. The main event would see Johnny Mundo defending his World Heavyweight Championship against Daniel Bryan who wanted another shot at the title after he wasn't pinned in the fatal 4 way last month. He would come close to winning here when Neville's music hit and he came out onto the stage with his Money In The Bank briefcase and looked like he was about to cash it in but as he came down the ramp he was took out with a suicide dive from Daniel Bryan who wanted a fair 1 on 1 match here. However as he rolled back into the ring he turned around into a superkick from Mundo who then hit the Starship Pain on Bryan and retained his title in a 93 A. He grabbed his title and got out of there as quick as possible while Neville and Bryan had a stare down to close the show. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
