Winner: Big E
This was great. Owens and Big E went out and put together one of the better cage matches I’ve seen in quite some time. I especially love the “realistic” moves in the corner that just didn’t work out. Owens constant attempt to get the fuck out of there made sense, too, and you really get the sense that they planned to open with a bang. I probably overrated this, but it exceeded my really really low expectations.

Backstage, now, and Riddle is wearing a tuxedo shirt with a blazer over it. Riddle brings up the tournament as his idea, and Orton says this was only Riddle’s idea. Apparently, Home Alone, changed Riddle’s life. Riddle says they are guest hosts and correspondents. Orton never agreed to this. Riddle calls this Viper Sarcasm. Riddle brought him a blazer. Riddle says he’ll look so good, and we want him to wear it. Riddle has a headset in his ear, and those voices in his head are telling him to make Orton wear the blazer. Riddle talks him into wearing it, and we get Orton and Riddle wearing WWE Blazers.

Backstage, Nikki is sulking. Rhea tells her they’ll get em next time.

Up comes a lady who wants an autograph, but from Jerry Lawler, not Nikki. This is made to look like Nikki thought it was for her, but they got the actress from the local playhouse, and it shows. King tells Nikki tough loss, kid, and offers her an autograph. Lol.

Match Time: 9:42

AJ puts his hand on the shoulder of Omos and tells him he’s gotta listen to AJ. Omos stares at the hand, then leaves the ring, frustrated with himself, and possibly AJ as well.


Riddle enters the ring and holds his headset, asking AJ for “a word.” Haha. “AJ, a word, please sir.”

AJ turns, wonders if Riddle is talking to him. AJ tells him to go an interview the winners of the match, but Riddle says he wants to follow the biggest story, and also The Street Profits were way too fast, bro. He asks what’s going on between AJ and Omos.

AJ says it was a disagreement, a miscommunication between a great tag team, but Riddle wouldn’t know anything about that. If Riddle doesn’t leave, AJ will shove the mic down his throat.

Riddle says things are just getting started, and anybody is game – except for AJ and Omos; they are definitely out. Would Orton like to add anything?

Orton, seated by the announce table, grabs a mic, and says, “Nope.”

Backstage, Sarah Schrieber is halfway through her hair being done, but must interview Becky Lynch.

Becky says it’s a big night…for Liv. Biggest match of her career. Liv won her match last week, hit Becky with her finisher, sucker punched Becky the week before that, and countered The Manhandle the week before that. There’s a new bandwagon to jump on, and the Liv Morgan train is a-rollin. But the real battle for Liv will be fought within her head and heart. No one really wants Liv to win the title. You do well enough, they cheer you. You do too well, they’ll turn on you. Liv is the underdog who will never really reach her dreams. Becky says tonight is just another Monday.

Orton tells Riddle that his broadcast days are over, gives him the blazer, and apparently leaves.

Last Monday, Vince McMahon slapped Austin Theory.

This Monday, Vince tells Theory that when people ask how he’s doing, they don’t give a damn about you or your jock itch.

Vince wants to put Theroy in a match tonight. Did Theory expect that? Was he surprised? Vince blows a load in his pants, it appears.

The Miz is next with MizTV and Edge.

Miz has some mic time, says Maryse isn’t here because they’re in Memphis. She doesn’t come to places like this.

Now to business: he rewatched last week, and he was speechless. Edge complimented him, The Miz. A heartfelt compliment! He has known Edge for 15 years, and that was not Edge last week. That was a shell of his former self. Or is he…

Miz introduces Edge, and out comes the man with the Flann(el).

Edge says he meant the compliments, and he still means them. Miz says The Rated R Superstar has lost his Edge. Miz says the old Edge, the master manipulator would have speared him out of his $9,000 shoes. This Edge is just mentally weak.

Edge disses the shoes, says his 3s are a lot cheaper. Miz doesn’t want his kindness or compliments now. He needed it in 2006. When everything he said and did was wrong. When he was kicked out. That’s when he needed Edge’s kindness. Miz was kicked out because he didn’t fit the mold; he was ostracized. Everyone knew he had the IT factor. He was treated like a peasant when he was mor talented than 90% of the locker room, so Edge’s kindness – he don’t want it or need it.

Edge says Miz is glossing over some key points. It was in this arena where he told Miz that he does have IT. Ride through this. Even though, it’s BS, Miz will be just fine, but Miz brushed him off. Edge went through the same thing Miz did seven years before. The biggest different between Miz and Edge is that Edge didn’t walk in thinking he was better than everyone, and he doesn’t hold people down. Miz wants to blame everyone else, but he needs to look in the mirror and it will tell Miz the same thing it told him in 2006: Miz, you’re an ass.

Miz calls Edge a hypocrite. 2022 will be The Year of Miz, and he cant think of a better way of ushering it in at Day One. Edge accepts, but he says they’re in Memphis, and there’s nothing between them. Miz says no, then talks about fear, but Edge makes him flinch and fall on his ass to prove a point.

Liv cuts a promo backstage.


Match 5: Rey and Dominik Mysterio vs The Alpha Academy

Backstage, Austin Theory is doing cartwheels while Vince is on the phone. Vince hangs up and tells Theory that he will not have a match tonight. Theory is sad. Vince tells Theory he’ll have to find out some other way to impress Vince.

Theory…unzips his vest, and does jumping jacks.

Vince tells him to stop, tells him to find some other way – use his brains. Theory smiles and leaves. This makes no sense. Vince watches Theory leaves, with makes me wonder if he didn’t like the unzipped jumping jacks…

After the match, Austin Theory attacks Finn from behind and takes a selfie with him.

Oh lord…backstage, Dana pops out from behind a box, Truth is disguised as a tree, Akira is in a trash can. Reggie is on top of some truck. As Dana walks away, Truth sits down and Akira goes…back into the trash can? Reggie tells Dana the title looks good on her. Tamina comes running from nowhere, Reggie stands in her way. I hate this…

Backstage, MVP tells us that we live in an era where people don’t face their consequences. Not in Lashley’s world. They didn’t even mention Lashley during the title match – that’s disrespectful. Those are the consequences. Lashley tells Kevin that when you disrespect him, that’s what happens.

Video package for Liv. Her mom helps with a little voiceover.

If they keep the momentum oing on Liv’s growth, she may have something, but this was certainly not the time.
