    Wrestlemania XXXIV is official for New Orleans on April 8, 2018.

    Monday Night Raw
    Date: January 9, 2017
    Location: Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, Louisiana
    Commentators: Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves

    It's a big night as WWE tries in vain to fight off the College Football National Championship game. Their best bet is appropriately enough a Hail Mary in the form of having Undertaker and Shawn Michaels appear, along with Roman Reigns defending the US title against Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens in a handicap match. Let's get to it.

    Stephanie McMahon is in the back with Mick Foley (who now has even less hair) for his annual performance review. First though, she wants to talk about the rumor that Undertaker will be here tonight. You mean the rumor that you SHOWED A VIDEO FOR LAST WEEK? Seth Rollins comes in and tells Stephanie he's in the Royal Rumble. Before that can go anywhere, Braun Strowman comes in to say he wants Goldberg or Reigns tonight. Rollins punches Strowman in the face and throws a plant at him until security breaks it up. Stephanie goes into screech mode to say she'll handle this.

    US title: Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens/Chris Jericho

    Reigns is defending. Hang on a second though as Strowman comes out and gets in a fight with Reigns, leading to a 3-1 beatdown. Cue Rollins with a chair for the save, allowing Reigns to grab his own chair to attack as well, so no match for now.

    Cue Stephanie to say there's going to be a handicap match later tonight while Rollins faces Strowman.

    Seth Rollins vs. Braun Strowman

    Braun doesn't waste time and cleans house immediately crushes Seth in the corner. Rollins can't get anything in as Braun pulls him away from the ropes. A neck snap across the top rope staggers the monster but he knocks Rollins off the apron with ease to send us to a break. Back with Rollins hitting a suicide dive and running knee to the face.

    A low superkick gets two and the springboard knee to the face only has a limited effect. Seth knocks him off the top (which freaks Byron out way too much considering it was the second time in the match) and a frog splash gets two. One more trip to the top goes a bit worse though as Rollins crashes into the barricade. Braun is fine with just watching him for the double countout at 11:36.

    Seth holds Braun off with a chair.

    Clip of Shawn's new movie The Resurrection of Gavin Stone.

    Bayley is really excited about facing Charlotte at the Royal Rumble and Sasha Banks says she'll have her back. Charlotte comes in to laugh at them and Sasha yells at her, only to get jumped by Nia Jax. Nia cleans house and winds up choking Charlotte before walking away.

    We look back at the Gentleman's Duel.

    Jack Gallagher vs. Drew Gulak

    Gulak takes over quickly with a middle rope clothesline and cranks on a double arm choke. Gallagher comes back with his headstand in the corner, followed by a headbutt and running corner dropkick for the pin at 3:21.

    Post match Gallagher says he has the rite to give Daivari a thrashing like never before in WWE. Instead though, he'd like to invite him to parlay, as in a sitdown meeting to discuss terms of agreement.

    TJ Perkins teaches Shawn Michaels to dab.

    Stephanie pesters Foley about where Undertaker is. Apparently Foley's ENTIRE performance review depends on getting Undertaker in the ring in the next hour. There's no real reason for this other than Stephanie decrees it and therefore we're not allowed to question it.

    Here's Shawn to talk about about the Rumble. He's enjoying the idea of Royal Rumble season, especially since it's in his hometown, which is where he won the WWE World title twenty years ago. “And yes, I am that old.” Shawn is much more comfortable sitting on the outside when you think about all the people in that match.

    Cue the ONE MORE MATCH chant so Shawn says he's going to teach us a lesson in standing up to peer pressure. He's here to talk about his new movie but here are Rusev, Jinder Mahal and Lana to interrupt. Rusev thinks Lana should have been in the movie and says Shawn can put her in via CGI. Shawn accuses Rusev of being a Wookie but Rusev says Lana should have won the Golden Globe. Shawn: “Could you not talk about golden globes? It makes me a bit uncomfortable.”

    Cue Enzo and Big Cass to say Shawn is the realest guy in the room. Shawn asks Enzo what we have over here. Shawn: “HATERS! HATERS I TELL YOU!” Cass thinks they could be in a movie called Beauty and the Beast or the Pianist. Shawn cringes and Cass explains the title in a joke that both hits and misses at the same time. They finally get to the challenge with Rusev wanting to fight Cass but it's going to be Mahal instead. Shawn thinks he'll stay out here for the match and if you're not down with that, guess what two words he has for you.

    Jinder Mahal vs. Big Cass

    Joined in progress with Mahal hitting a running knee and a low dropkick for two. With legs as long as his, that offense makes sense. Cass comes back with his corner splashes but Rusev grabs his foot. That earns him Sweet Chin Music. The East River Crossing (pretty much botched) and the Empire Elbow wrap Mahal up at 3:09.

    Emmalina video.

    Neville vs. Lince Dorado

    Dorado hits a very quick handspring into a Stunner followed by a running dive to the floor. Back in and Neville hits something like a fireman's carry slam into an armbar. A release F5 sets up a Rings of Saturn of all things to make Dorado tap at 2:59.

    Rich Swann comes out for the save but Neville ducks the big kick to the head.

    Video on Edge winning the Royal Rumble.

    Sasha and Bayley come in to see Stephanie and demand a tag match next week. Stephanie tells Sasha to take the bass out of her voice because she's the only boss in this room. If Bayley keeps yelling, she'll lose her title shot. The tag match is on for tonight.

    Luke Gallows vs. Sheamus

    Cesaro and Anderson are on commentary to make it a five man booth. They slug it out to start until Sheamus gets in a spinning kick to the face. The slingshot shoulder gets two and they head outside for more slugging out. A big boot knocks Sheamus off the top though and we take a break. Back with Sheamus hitting the ten forearms to the chest followed by the top rope clothesline for two. The Brogue Kick is loaded up but Anderson hits Cesaro with a bottle. The distraction lets Luke get in a flapjack for two. Sheamus pops up and hits the Brogue for the pin at 10:20.

    Reigns says he'll retain.

    Here's Foley to request Undertaker come out, making it sound like he's summoning the Candyman (not Brad Armstrong for you old school fans). The lights go out....and here's Stephanie to rip on Foley for being unable to produce the Undertaker. Stephanie talks about all the issues Foley has created, including putting the Cruiserweight division on the line, creating the monster Braun Strowman and above all else: ALLOWING SMACKDOWN TO BEAT RAW IN THE RATINGS.

    Before I can elaborate on how stupid that is, Undertaker cuts them off and makes his big appearance. After a very long entrance (duh), Undertaker says he goes where he wants, when he wants and no one (as he gets in Stephanie's face) tells him what to do. He'll be in the Royal Rumble and has dug 29 holes for 29 souls so he can be in the main event of Wrestlemania. If anyone stands in his way, they will REST IN PEACE.

    Jericho and Owens are ready to become national heroes because it's time America was represented by two Canadians.

    Nia Jax/Charlotte vs. Bayley/Sasha Banks

    It's a big standoff to start and we take a break less than a minute in. Back with Banks in control of Charlotte until a shot to the knee puts her right back down. Bayley gets the tag and does her elbow to the back into the sliding clothesline spot but it's off to Nia for the domination. Charlotte comes in for some suplexes before the hot tag brings Sasha back in. That goes nowhere though and Bayley has to come back in, only to be run over by Nia. The big leg is enough to put Bayley away at 8:55.

    Noam Dar offers Alicia a free slap but she kisses him instead. Dar is shaken and Alicia says Cedric was right: he can't handle a real woman.

    Here's New Day to address Titus O'Neil wanting to be part of the team. After a break, Titus comes out and suggests being on the team again but first, let's look at a clip of the original NXT with Titus stumbling while trying to carry a keg. They have an offer for Titus: if he can carry a keg around the ring in less than 12.7 seconds (the winning time of the original contest), he wins. Titus runs around but drops the keg before crossing the line. A match is made for after a second break.

    Kofi Kingston vs. Titus O'Neil

    Kofi runs around to start because Titus isn't smart enough to keep up with him. A chop off goes to Titus and he gets two off a big boot. Kofi's sunset flip gets the same and it's time for some tromboning. That's fine with Titus as he throws Kofi onto the rest of the team and Trouble in Paradise wraps O'Neil up at 3:39.

    Video on the UK Tournament.

    US title: Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens/Chris Jericho

    Reigns is defending and is smart enough to lock Jericho in the shark cage, only to have Owens make a last second save. The champ is thrown against the cage, which falls down off the stage in a quieter than expected crash. Another shove sends Reigns into the steps as we're waiting on the opening bell. The challengers have to tag here so Owens starts out for the team.

    Jericho comes in and grabs the chinlock, only to have Roman, whose arm is banged up, come back with clotheslines. The Superman Punch misses Jericho and a Lionsault gets two. A Pop-Up Codebreaker is countered with back to back Superman Punches but Owens gets in a superkick from the floor. Reigns blocks the apron powerbomb though and scores with the apron dropkick. The Codebreaker slows Roman down though and now Owens hits the powerbomb on the apron. Back in and another Codebreaker gives Jericho the pin and the title at 8:19.

    Date: January 10, 2017
    Location: Raising Cane's River Center Arena, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
    Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga, Tom Phillips

    As is becoming the regular case around here, we've got a title match set up coming into the show. In this case it's the Tag Team Titles being defended as American Alpha put the titles on the line against the Wyatt Family. Other than that we have John Cena's first singles match in a long time as he faces Baron Corbin. Let's get to it.

    We open with a recap of Miz vs. Dean Ambrose over the last few weeks, including all the slaps and without the new interviewer stumbling over her words.

    Here's Ambrose for the Ambrose Asylum as hosted by the new Intercontinental Champion. Let's get this out of the way right now: he's in the Royal Rumble. Other than that, he's annoyed that they can't have a live alligator in the ring due to not having a permit. He does however have a plastic alligator head named Maryse, which brings him to his guest. That would of course be Miz and Maryse, who cut him off before their introductions.

    Miz is in the Rumble as well but more importantly, he wants Ambrose to hand over the title that Miz should have retained due to outside interference. Dean agrees to give Miz something but it's the Participation Award from a few weeks back. The fight is on and Maryse slaps her husband by mistake, setting up Dirty Deeds to Miz. Maryse is handed the award as Dean leaves.

    We recap Nikki Bella vs. Natalya to set up their match tonight.

    Nikki is on her way to the ring when Natalya jumps her.

    Nikki Bella vs. Natalya

    Bella charges out to the ring without selling anything (because that would mean she's not FEARLESS) and it's a big brawl, meaning no match. Natalya takes out the bad leg and puts Nikki in the Sharpshooter on the floor.

    Dolph Ziggler has nothing to say about what he did to Kalisto last week.

    Kalisto vs. Dolph Ziggler

    A very fast hurricanrana sends Ziggler outside to start so he opts for some technical wrestling to take Kalisto down instead. The masked man tries to speed things up but gets kicked in the head to put him on the floor as we take a break. Back with Kalisto being stuck in and then fighting out of a chinlock. Ziggler charges into an elbow in the corner and gets rolled up for the pin at 8:37.

    Post match Ziggler lays Kalisto out and destroys him with a chair as CHILDREN are watching. Yes I say they're WATCHING THE SHOW IN FRONT OF THEM! THIS IS SO FREAKING INTERESTING! Apollo Crews comes out for the fight as Ziggler goes to leave, only to get chaired down as well.

    American Alpha isn't underestimating the Wyatts but they know they can beat them.

    John Cena wants to know who Baron Corbin thinks he is. Cena is the one who needs to make a statement and he's been called a lot of things in WWE. Last week, AJ Styles called him a has been and Corbin agreed with him. Tonight the lone wolf may be on the prowl tonight but his name is John Cena and his time is now.

    The Wyatts say they'll win the titles back.

    Tag Team Titles: Wyatt Family vs. American Alpha

    Alpha is defending and it's Bray and Randy for the Wyatts. Bray takes Jordan down to start with Jason easily taking over on the mat. Randy comes in and gives up a blind tag to Gable, who armbars Bray over the top rope. Sister Abigail is countered into a rollup and Gable follows it up with a dive off the apron.

    Back in and Bray just runs Gable over, allowing Orton to drop him back first onto the barricade. I heartily approve of anything that means a hot tag to Jordan. The chinlock doesn't work very well so Orton goes with a slingshot suplex for two. Gable finally gets up and makes the tag to Jordan so things can speed way up. It must be the straps coming down to slow down wind resistance. Harper grabs Jordan's leg though and Jason gets draped across the top rope, sending us to a break.

    Back with Orton raking his boot over Jordan's eyes before handing it back to Bray, who eats one heck of a clothesline. The real hot tag brings in Gable for some bad looking right hands on Wyatt. A top rope clothesline gets two on Orton but Harper gets on the apron, only to be knocked off when Orton goes for the elevated DDT. Harper gets back up and distracts Orton, allowing Gable to ram them together for an O'Connor roll on Orton to retain the titles at 15:32.

    Post match Harper and Orton are about to fight with Bray trying to break it up. Harper throws a superkick but hits Bray by mistake. Bray looks at both of them as the fans chant Randy. Wyatt leaves on his own.

    Corbin is ready for Cena.

    Clips from Wrestlemania XXXIV press conference in New Orleans.

    Becky Lynch asks Daniel Bryan who was the other La Luchadora. Alexa Bliss comes in and says she was about to find out who was under the mask when Lynch messed everything up. Bryan doesn't want to hear it and gives Becky a title match next week inside a steel cage.

    Carmella vs. CJ Lunde

    The jobber's last name is probably a rib as Lunde is Arn Anderson's real last name. Carmella runs her over a few times until Ellsworth grabs Lunde's leg. A hard left hand gets two for Carmella so Lunde goes outside to yell at James. Back in and a badly botched Downward Spiral sets up the Code of Silence for the tap out at 2:41.

    We look back at Undertaker entering the Royal Rumble last night.

    Carmella is going to take Ellsworth on a shopping spree next week.

    Baron Corbin is ready to end Cena. AJ Styles comes in and tells Corbin to impersonate the champ and beat Cena up.

    Baron Corbin vs. John Cena

    Styles is on commentary. Corbin wastes no time in kicking Cena in the face to put him on the floor as we take an early break. Back with Cena not being able to hit the AA because someone under 300lbs is too heavy for him to lift. They head outside with Cena throwing him into the steps for his first breather of the match.

    As Styles talks about how he wants Cena to lose because he just doesn't like John, Corbin gets in a powerslam for two. Deep Six gets the same so Baron opts to just squeeze Cena with a bearhug. That lasts as long as a bearhug is going to last before Cena fights out and grabs a tornado DDT. Back up and the ProtoBomb sets up the AA for the clean pin on Corbin at 11:02.

    Kalisto b. Dolph Ziggler – Rollup
    American Alpha b. Wyatt Family – O'Connor roll to Orton
    Carmella b. CJ Lunde – Code of Silence
    John Cena b. Baron Corbin – Attitude Adjustment


    Date: January 11, 2017
    Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida
    Commentators: Percy Watson, Corey Graves, Tom Phillips

    We're back to Full Sail and that means it's time to hit the gas on the road towards San Antonio. The NXT title match is already set up but now it's time to set up the Tag Team Title match. We know that the Authors of Pain are waiting on the champions but the question is who will be defending against them. That's what we'll find out tonight as the Revival gets their rematch against DIY. Let's get to it.

    We open with a recap of DIY vs. Revival, as you probably expected.

    Opening sequence.

    Earlier today, Billie Kay and Peyton Royce attacked Asuka in the back. I'm sure their destruction will be quick and imminent.

    Billie Kay/Peyton Royce vs. Sarah Bridges/Macy Evans

    Peyton offers an early distraction so Billie can run Evans over from behind. The Aussies take turns beating on her until a hot tag brings Bridges in for the hope spot. That lasts all of about fifteen seconds as Bridges gets double teamed, setting up the bulldog onto Billie's knee for the pin at 2:06.

    Post match the Aussies get the mic and are told that Asuka will kill them. Cue Asuka, who is beaten down again, only to have Nikki Cross come in for the save. With Kay and Royce taken out, Cross kicks Asuka in the face to leave the champ laying.

    Sanity says they're taking over and it starts with Cross becoming the new Women's Champion. Big Damo watches from the shadows.

    Elias Samson vs. Jonathan Cruz

    Before the match, Samson sings about being around forever. With Graves ripping on Samson for general annoyances, Elias drives Cruz into the corner but gets rolled up for one. A clothesline drops Samson and that's about it for Cruz's offense as he gets his ribs bent around the post. Samson knees him in the ear (ow) and kicks him in the jaw, setting up the neckbreaker for the pin at 3:25.

    We take another look at DIY vs. Revival.

    Andrade Cien Almas vs. Oney Lorcan

    Almas now has pyro for his entrance. This is a rematch from Osaka where Lorcan won in an upset. Lorcan shoves him off a headlock but Almas just poses on the mat like the jerk that he is. A hard shot to the chest puts Andrade on the floor so Lorcan hits a Blockbuster off the apron. Back in and a clothesline cuts Oney off for the first time, setting up a slap to the face. Lorcan elbows him right back though and an Alabama Slam into the corner staggers Almas even more. Not that it matters as Almas does his pose on the ropes to buy himself some time, setting up the hammerlock DDT to put Lorcan away at 5:00.

    Almas says this will be his year.

    Another look at the Toronto match.

    In a sitdown interview, Shinsuke Nakamura says he's proud of being NXT Champion after a very hard series against Samoa Joe. That brings him to Bobby Roode, who he calls one of the best wrestlers in the world. Despite not being willing to appear on camera, Roode has a gift for Nakamura: Roode's ticket for last year's Takeover: Dallas, when Nakamura made his in ring debut.

    Tag Team Titles: Revival vs. DIY

    DIY is defending and the winners face the Authors of Pain in San Antonio. Gargano and Dawson get things going with Scott getting caught in an atomic drop. The champs come in and knock Dash and Dawson outside for an early break. Back with Gargano working on Dawson's arm as Graves plays cheerleader for the challengers.

    Wilder makes one of those always great blind tags and the chop block puts Gargano down. That means it's time to pick apart a limb and the leg is wrapped around the post. Gargano gets tied in the Tree of Woe and they be clubberin on that knee. Johnny is sent outside and Revival is way too happy with a potential countout. Dash goes to get him but gets posted for his efforts, only to have Dawson tackle Gargano to break up a hot tag attempt.

    Back from another break with the leg work continuing via a half crab. Ever the cocky heel, Dash slaps Johnny in the face and gets caught with an enziguri, allowing the hot tag to Ciampa. With a PSYCHO KILLER chant rolling, Ciampa cleans house with running knees and German suplexes. A hard knee to Dash's head gets two but Dawson just BLASTS Ciampa with a clothesline. Something like a Hart Attack is broken up with a superkick and Ciampa grabs the armbar.

    Dawson gets smart by shoving Gargano onto them for the save in a great false finish. Gargano breaks out of an attempted leglock and suicide dives onto Dawson. Dash gets floored as well and it's back to Ciampa who walks into a DDT for another two. The champs unload with strikes and the running knee/superkick to both Dawson and Wilder (who were hugging) at the same time retain the titles at 21:02.

    Speaking of the Authors, they run in and beat the champs down.

    Regal makes DIY vs. the Authors for San Antonio. Wasn't that already announced? Also, next week it's Nakamura and Roode having a contract signing, which certainly was announced earlier in the night. Regal is almost done but Asuka comes in and demands to face Cross, Kay and Royce at Takeover to end the show.

    Billie Kay/Peyton Royce b. Sarah Bridges/Macy Evans – Bulldog onto a knee
    Elias Samson b. Jonathan Cruz – Neckbreaker
    Andrade Cien Almas b. Oney Lorcan – Hammerlock DDT
    DIY b. Revival – Running knee/superkick


    Impact Wrestling
    Date: January 12, 2017
    Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
    Commentators: Josh Matthews, D'Angelo Dinero

    It's the second show of the Anthem Era and that means more talking about how Anthem is helping keep the show going. Eddie Edwards is still the World Champion after Davey Richards returned last week to help him retain the title in a triple threat match over Lashley and Ethan Carter III. Let's get to it.

    Josh and Pope welcome us to the show and run down tonight's card.

    The Hardys are ready for the Wolves tonight as the Tag Team titles will be on the line. With less than one week's build too.

    Here's Ethan Carter III to talk about Davey Richards costing him his World title match at last week's One Night Only Live pay per view. All he wanted was one clean title shot but Richards and a chair kept that from happening. Now he wants to invade Wolves Nation like Liam Neeson in the Gray.

    Cue Lashley instead and he's not pleased with Carter. If it were him last week, he would have caved in Eddie Edwards' head with a chair and be out here with the title right now. Lashley suggests a last man standing match for the title tonight (assuming he means for the #1 contendership) so Carter asks the Anthem Owl on the turnbuckle. Carter wants the match right now and the fight is on in the aisle but it's quickly broken up.

    Lashley vs. Ethan Carter III

    Last man standing with the winner getting the shot at Edwards at some point in the future. They brawl on the floor to start with Lashley hitting a powerslam on the concrete for seven, only to get slammed off the top, followed by a cutter. A suplex on the floor keeps Lashley down long enough for Ethan to set up two tables as we take a break.

    Back with Lashley being sent into the corner and getting German suplexed out of it for four. A superplex doesn't keep Lashley down either so he superplexes Carter for a long count. The spear gets seven on Carter so Lashley spears him again. The count last long enough that Lashley can set up a table in the corner.

    Carter avoids a third spear and hits one of his own to put Lashley through the table but both are up at nine. Ethan just unloads on him with a chair but that's still not enough. With nothing else working, Ethan grabs his rear naked choke but gets dropped off the apron through both tables. Both guys are down and only Lashley can beat the count for the win at 17:15.

    Next week it's Race for the Case (Feast or Fired) with the winners getting four matches the following week at Open Fight Night. So they're having a gimmick match to set up a gimmick show in the span of two weeks.

    Eli Drake has Tyrus grab a backstage worker and force him to read a prepared statement since the fans were glad that Eli wasn't allowed to speak. Drake is going to get his revenge, starting by winning Race for the Case next week and beats the guy up for not having enough emotion.

    Here's Rockstar Spud in powder blue to introduce Aron Rex, who is now in a white fur coat in something like a Liberace gimmick (which Rex pitched to WWE for years but was never allowed to go through with it). Spud introduces him again once he's in the ring so Rex can say everyone has paid to see him for years but they should never pay for him to do something as barbaric as fighting. The coat comes off and Rex now has flesh colored trunks so here's Robbie E. to interrupt. The fight is quickly on and Rex uses the big rings to knock Robbie down. Rex puts the coat back on and says violence is never the answer.

    The DCC is ready to take out Decay tonight. Kingston has fifteen years of memories of being told he's too violent for this business but he knew his time had come when James Storm called him. Storm says DCC is for Death Crew Council.

    Allie is in the back when Maria comes up to yell at her. Maria isn't happy that Allie is still talking to Braxton Sutter but Allie says she's done everything Maria has told her to do. Haven't these two broken up like a million times now?

    Decay vs. DCC

    Storm is the odd man out here. It's a big brawl to start (as it should be) with the DCC taking over off an Alabama Slam to Steve. Bram comes in for a clothesline as Josh runs through all the advertisements he can squeeze into a single match. The hot tag brings in Abyss and everything breaks down again with Steve diving onto Bram and Kingston. The match is thrown out for a double DQ at 5:11.

    They keep brawling out of the arena.

    The Wolves say tonight is special because they can get their titles back.

    Brooke is back and thrilled to get back in the ring.

    Mike Bennett vs. Braxton Sutter

    Mike kicks him in the face to start and a Maria distraction keeps Bennett in control. Sutter makes an early comeback as we get a weak “we want Allie” chant. Maria grabs Sutter's leg though and the Miracle in Progress connects. Before the cover though, Maria wants a kiss so here's Allie to cut her off, allowing Sutter to grab a rollup for the pin at 5:04.

    Post break, Maria yells about Allie screwing things up. Mike says Allie works for Maria so Maria can destroy her.

    Rosemary comes out and says the Knockouts will all become part of the darkness but here's Jade, now with short hair, to say they're just getting started. She wants her rematch and Rosemary is very pleased. The match is accepted, as long as it can be Monster's Ball. Jade agrees and stops an attack from behind. I'll take Jade as a challenger, but I don't believe for a second that it's not just filler until Gail Kim comes back for another title run.

    Tag Team Titles: Wolves vs. Hardys

    The Hardys are defending. Matt and Davey get things going before it's quickly off to Jeff for a dropkick. That goes nowhere so the World Champ comes in and gets double teamed to the mat as we take an early break. Back with Eddie getting in a neckbreaker but not being able to make the hot tag.

    Instead it's back to Matt who gives up the hot tag and gets caught in a Richards Figure Four. Jeff's save is countered into an ankle lock at the same time before Davey cranks on Matt's knee even more. The Wolves take over on Matt for a bit with some alternating stomps, only to have Jeff come in for another reset (Josh's words).

    A double Whisper in the Wind puts the Wolves down but Jeff gets caught in Chasing the Dragon for two. Davey misses the top rope double stomp and it's the Twist into the Swanton for two with Richards making a save. Eddie dives onto Matt so there's no one for whatever Davey wanted to set up, allowing Jeff to roll Richards up for the pin at 16:33.

    The Wolves argue to end the show.
