Author’s POV, Running Commentary & Thoughts:

Kickoff

  • Most likely nothing will be announced, changed or take place during this show. It seems very much to be just the usual hour of breaking down the card and talking about the matches. If there is anything other than pre-show panel analysis, it will be noted here.
  • Nope. Nothing. An hour of talking. If you skipped it, you didn’t miss anything at all other than Matt Camp, Jackie Redmond and Peter Rosenberg giving their picks for winners.

Cool set they have going on with the giant crown. Lots of pyro.


Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar

  • In typical fashion, we just had an hour of talking, so let’s run a video package prior to this match starting. It’s 12:10 and Brock Lesnar hasn’t come out yet.
  • Eventually, this match starts with the thing we all knew was going to happen, which is the spot where Lesnar gets speared through the barricade. It happens in every single one of his matches, it seems.
  • The story here is that Lashley is fired up and in charge to kick things off. Lesnar will inevitably turn it around. And as I’m typing this, he already has.
  • Lesnar was stuck in The Hurt Lock and managed to fall backward into a pinfall, wherein Lashley got caught for a three-count. A pissed-off Lashley put Lesnar in The Hurt Lock again after the match. This felt very held-back as if they just want to do the bare minimum and then carry this back over again for WrestleMania or something.

Backstage, Alexa Bliss was momentarily distracted with Bray Wyatt’s logo when being interviewed about her tag team title defense about to come up.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss and Asuka vs. Damage CTRL

  • Just a back and forth match. They’re harping on Asuka still not being 100% recovered from her injury. Not much else to talk about.
  • Assisted superplex (Asuka on bottom, Bliss being superplexed, Kai and Sky in the center)
  • Well, I was right. This was just a hot potato temporary title switch for the sake of trying to limp this feud on for Survivor Series. With Nikki Cross coming in to help, her interference leads to Damage CTRL winning the titles back. Bliss and Asuka won those belts on Monday just to drop them here and play the lowest common denominator for microwaving this no longer even lukewarm feud instead of actually properly heating it up with something worthwhile.

Steel Cage Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross

  • Karrion Kross and Scarlett took a moment to check out the drone light show for their entrance and momentarily broke their mean-mugging to just smile at it. Kross then smiled at the start of this match, too, clearly feeling how huge this arena is and all.
  • Nice little moment where Drew was upside down in the corner, flipped himself upward and tossed Kross off the turnbuckle. Simple, but effective.
  • Superplex off the top of the cage / top rope. Very nice.
  • To prevent McIntyre from escaping the cage door, Scarlett maced him in the face again.
  • McIntyre is able to escape the cage by climbing over. That’s a good way to give him the victory without Kross taking a pinfall loss. Scarlett had locked the cage door and took too long to open it for Kross to get out in time, causing an error in judgment on her part.

Six-Man Tag Team Match: The O.C. vs. The Judgment Day

  • Karl Anderson takes the heat in the corner for a while. This is basically just waiting until Rhea Ripley gets involved.
  • Lots of people online are really going nuts over the name Bullet Club being mentioned on commentary.
  • Every match has had a “this is awesome” chant. These fans are starved for it.
  • Ripley finally gets involved. Michael Cole gets upset and says “somebody has to kick her ass, this is ridiculous.” With that interference, The Judgment Day are victorious as Balor pins Styles.
  • Since nobody showed up to stop Ripley, this means we’re just copying and pasting everything we’ve seen before. They just keep having Ripley interfere, cost The O.C., and nobody learns any lessons.

Braun Strowman vs. Omos

  • 6’8 vs. 7’3. 335lbs vs 416lbs. These two are just huge.
  • Omos dominates most of the match. He’s showing off how he can rather easily slam Strowman and such.
  • Strowman’s train run on the outside was derailed, too. This is the Omos show.
  • As such, to balance it out, Strowman hits a power slam for the win. Both come out looking strong, overall. Hard to argue against that booking.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Brawling Brutes

  • I’m just going to get my “The Usos retain” information set up in advance before this starts.
  • There are a series of very close near-falls. Not enough to make me think the belts are actually changing hands, but definitely enough to spark a moment of interest. The crowd was eating that all up, for sure.
  • The Usos retain with a 1D off the ropes. That’s a good way to show respect to The Brawling Brutes, needing to use a maneuver like that to win, instead of just retaining by a regular splash or something.

Last Woman Standing Match: Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Bayley

  • In a rare sight, a table is being brought out before the fans have already chanted “we want tables.” Normally, that happens so early in a No DQ match that there’s no opportunity to get to it first.
  • I’m assuming Kai, Sky and Cross will get involved here. Then, Bliss, Asuka and an extra woman will come out to fight and even the odds, allowing Belair to win. That’s my ultimate guess for this match. But it shouldn’t happen for at least another 5 minutes or so from when I’m typing this.
  • Bayley put Belair into a case and shut the lid. Belair was able to barely escape, and even got her ponytail trapped. That was something different.
  • Bayley’s got a golf cart. This was terrible, as she just slowed down right in front of her and Belair casually stepped to the side and started fighting with her. Completely whiffed that.
  • Now, Bayley is on top of the cart while Belair is slowly driving it down the ramp. What was the point in all this?
  • Belair powerbombs Bayley through a table. Bayley just gets to her feet at the count of 9.
  • Bayley gets trapped between a ladder and the bottom rope to allow Belair to retain. There goes my theory about the other team members fighting.

Bray Wyatt

  • Wyatt finally mentions that he comes from a wrestling family. That’s the first time it’s been acknowledged that I’m aware of.
  • To get to those heights he wanted to achieve, he turned himself into a monster and lost who he was. But he wants to write the end of his story as Bray Wyatt.
  • Uncle Howdy pops up on the TitanTron to say not to take the mask off. Hurting people feels good and such. Who knows you better than I do?
  • And just like that, it’s just another one of those “stretch this out and don’t actually do anything” segments that happens 99% of the time with Bray Wyatt.

Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Logan Paul

  • Final bets. Does Jake Paul show up? Will The Bloodline interfere? Does Roman Reigns retain by pinfall or submission? I’m going yes, yes, pinfall.
  • Logan Paul is able to do a Buckshot Lariat. He’s got that over CM Punk.
  • Lots of trash talking. That’s good for character work.
  • All things considered, Paul continually handles himself rather well in the ring.
  • Paul hits a Superman Punch on Reigns. There’s your “one lucky punch” narrative.
  • Paul is even tuning up the band for Sweet Chin Music, but doesn’t land a superkick. He stops shorter than Bayley did with the golf cart.
  • Two more lucky punches and a near-fall. The crowd was nervous that was the end.
  • Paul lands a frog splash through the commentary table.
  • The Usos grab some of Paul’s crew that are ringside and pull them over the barricade. Then, they take them out in the ring with superkicks.
  • Time for Jake Paul to come out.
  • Paul with another frog splash for another near-fall.
  • Solo Sikoa is next to come out. Officials try to separate everyone. Logan Paul jumps over the top rope onto The Usos. He heads into the ring right into a Superman punch. Reigns with a spear retains.
