I like that boulder….that’s a nice boulder.

After a quick rundown of a few of tonight’s matches, we go live with Drew McIntyre!

Drew wants to know who is ready for a new champion. He wants priest, but he knows where Priest is, there must be a Judgment Day nearby.

Here comes Damien Priest who comes out with Finn Balor and JD McDonagh.

Priest tells Drew he has his shot but he’s still making excuses.Last week, Priest made it personal? Why? Because he played Drew’s game? Drew made it personal by saying he needs Judgment Day to be champion. This title isn’t theirs, it’s his. He’s going into Drew’s territory and put him down, and as much as he loves his crew, he doesn’t need them to be champion. He is champ because he is Damien Priest.

Drew says his title belongs to him, but Priest tells him to give it a rest. He’ll make this real simple – how bout tonight, Drew vs Finn. If he wins, Judgment Day will be barred from ringside. But when Finn wins, he wants them there front and center to have the honor to watch him beat him in his home.

Drew is down.

We head back to last week when Liv cornered Dom like a dom.

Backstage, Liv Morgan tells Dominik Mysterio that she’d like to call him daddy, and offers him her hotel room key.

Lyra Valkyria vs Iyo Sky

Iyo corners Lyra and sends her down hard by her head. She slaps her around then steps on her ponytail til the ref stops her. Iyo attacks some more, with kicks to the back then to the chest.

He doesn’t wanna sound like a broken record, but he reminds them that they don’t have to take this.

In comes Otis to stare Sami down. Sami says he’ll see Otis in the ring tonight. Otis says he lost it, it won’t happen again, let him explain.

Sami says no, he gets it. He’s been through this. He knew his reaSons, though. He’s not sure why Otis still does. Otis says at one time, he had it all. Then he lost it all. His briefcase, his peach, his boy Tucky…he lost it all. Gable was there. He is his family. Maxxine is his family. Akira is his family. Without Gable, he is nothing.

Sami yells that this is not true, those are Gable’s words, does Otis know how special he is, how he could be? He hopes one day, he can see it for himself.


Backstage, Priest asks Dom about what happened earlier. Finn says don’t worry, the key is right here.

Priest looks at the empty table, says right where?

Everybody leaves. Lol.

Video package for Ilja Dragunov.

Backstage, Iyo Sky screams and pulls her hair out, telling Dakota and Kairi that Damage CTRL has to change!

Sami comes out to cut a promo about what hes going to do after he beats Gable, but Chad Gable comes out with his Academy to cut that shit off quickly.

He says typical Sami, trying to make himself the hero. But he is the hero. He is his Academy’s hero, and will triumph when he takes the title this Saturday.

Sami wonders if Gable really thinks his team is happy. Do they look happy?

They don’t.

Sami asks Tozawa if he’s happy. Is Maxxine happy? Gable stares them all down before they can answer.

Gable doesn’t care, but these people do, and they won’t be happy until they leave gable’s sorry ass once and for all.

Gable says Sami doesn’t understand that they are a family, and families stick together, no matter what. He will unleash his version of Otis onto Sami. The version that obeys, the most brutal andruthless version, and he’s unleashing him now.

End Show

The final score: review Good
The 411
Tonight’s episode was pretty fun. It flowed well, and even with some matches that were essentially squashes and/or non-matches, those that were had a purpose. Thoroughly impressed by Iyo and Lyra yet again, and Bron v Ilja was just bonkers. The main was fun enough, and all in all we had a great go-home show.
