[HOUR ONE]

-Cole introduced the show as they showed a banner saying they were in Philadelphia.

-Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler, and Drew McIntyre walked out to Braun’s music. They went to the announcers on camera who plugged Crown Jewel’s Universal Title match. No mention of the location for the event. They also talked about the World Cup and hyped qualifying matches with Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre. Ziggler said they’re the best three-man team. He gloated about Dean walking out on his Shield partners last week. A clip aired and then a “WWE.com exclusive” post-Raw interview from last week aired with Kayla asking Dean why he walked out. Dean said maybe he just doesn’t fit in with anyone and he walked away.

Back live, Drew said he “didn’t want to say I told you so, but I told you so.” He said The Shield has been shattered. Braun said at this rate, The Shield won’t be around to watch Roman Reigns’s back when he slays The Beast and dismantles the Big Dog at Crown Jewel. (No mention of Saudi Arabia.) Drew said he will beat Seth, mow through the rest of the competition, and prove to everyone he is the “absolute best in this world.” Ziggler told Drew to take it easy. He said he’s great, but he also has a qualifying match with Dean. He said maybe they will end up going head-to-head in the finals. Drew said that would be a shame because as good as Ziggler is, “and you are absolutely fantastic, you’re no Drew McIntyre.” Ziggler laughed and said they’d cross that bridge when they come to it.

Braun jumped in and said as good as they are, at Crown Jewel, Lesnar and Roman are both going to get these hands. The crowd joined in at the end. Then the music for The Shield played. Two-thirds of them walked in through the crowd – Seth and Roman. Ziggler said he’ll gladly take a forfeit win later. Seth said Dean will show up on “Dean time” because that’s how he works. When Reigns began to speak, there were boos. Ziggler joined in with some boos. Reigns said the funny part is they’re worried about Dean when they should be worried about the titles. (Championships?) He told Braun after Crown Jewel, he’s going to the back of the line. Seth said he’s always liked Philadelphia. He complimented the cheesesteaks and said Philly is a fighting town. He told Drew they should have their qualifying match right here, right now. Cole said they both look ready. The opening segment clocked in at ten minutes long.

(Keller’s Analysis: Good opening segment to set the stage for the show and follow-up on last week. The heels gloating about Dean not being as loyal as Seth and Roman might like worked, and Seth making excuses for Dean rang true enough to not seem like they were in complete denial about there being serious issues. Ziggler continues to be the Comeback Character of the year. The tease of prideful tension between Ziggler and McIntyre is a nice subplot.) [c]

(1) DREW MCINTYRE vs. SETH ROLLINS – World Cup Qualifier

Graves asked where is Dean. Renee said she hasn’t seen him much in the past couple of weeks. She said Philadelphia is a city where he made a name for himself, but she doesn’t know where he is. “I’m out here doing my job,” she said. When Graves brought up “Dean time,” Renee said, “That’s a real thing.” She said to keep track of him, you need a GPS on him. A few minutes in, Seth got the better of Drew at ringside. Ziggler ran out and distracted Seth as Drew went under the ring. Renee said Ziggler is always so smug. When Seth went back to get Drew, Drew yanked his shoulder into the ring support. Seth went down grabbing his elbow and Drew crawled out from under the ring as they cut to a break. [c]

Seth superplexed Drew, but Drew rolled through and landed a sitout powerbomb for a near fall. They replayed it as the two wrestlers recovered. Seth rallied. Ziggler distracted Seth by leaping on the ring apron briefly. Drew charged at Seth, but Seth blocked him. Seth clotheslined Drew over the top rope, then dove through the ropes onto Ziggler on the other side of the ring, then dove through the ropes onto McIntyre on the other side of the ring. As Seth ran into the ropes, Ziggler pulled the top rope down. Seth tumbled to the floor. Dean’s music played. He attacked Ziggler after coming through the crowd. Then Drew hit Dean from behind with a clothesline. Renee said, “You have to show up when the time is right.” Seth then delivered a Stomp to McIntyre on the floor. Cole wondered if Seth could get McIntyre in the ring to score a pin as the ref counted. Seth won by countout seconds later when he rolled into the ring.

WINNER: Rollins in 13:00 to advance in the World Cup.

(Keller’s Analysis: Really good action between these two. Dean showing up to even the odds “stuck it to the heels” who had gloated earlier there was serious dissension. Dean continues to be portrayed as a bit of a loose cannon who is there when it counts.)

-They showed the Bellas heading to their locker room, but looking over their shoulders with concern that Ronda Rousey could be lurking nearby.

-They showed Trish Stratus and Lita chatting when Bayley joined them and hugged them and smiled.

-Cole plugged a recap of the DX Reunion from last week. He talked about it being an emotional moment.

-Seth, Roman, and Dean were walking together backstage. Seth said he knew Dean would show up because he’s on “Lunatic Time.” Dean took offense and asked, “What did you call me?” Dean asked if that’s all he is to them. “I’m good for a few laughs, right? I’m a real riot until you guys need bailing out.” He said he has his own mess to worry about. Seth said it’s not like that.

-They went to the announcers on camera. Graves said it appears there is discord there. Cole talked about Crown Jewel, but again didn’t mention Saudi Arabia as the site. A video recap aired of last week’s announcement that DX would team together at Crown Jewel.

-A vignette aired with Kane and Undertaker in a boiler room filled with red fog. Undertaker said DX wants to lecture them about respect. Kane said the reunification of DX is built on a bed of lies. Taker said Michaels may claim he stayed away due to respect for him he no longer has, but he thinks Shawn stayed away due to fear. Kane said Shawn was worried his brother would put Michaels down again, “this time so deep in the ground that Shawn could never return.” Undertaker said at Crown Jewel, all of Shawn’s fears will come true. He said Triple H can shuffle back to the comfort of a board room (it’s hardly a comfortable place this week) and Michaels can shuffle back off to the safety of retirement. Kane said Triple H and Michaels have three words for them, but they have three words for them: “Rest in peace.”

(Keller’s Analysis: Very well done. Good verbiage. Good delivery. Good production values.)

-Graves plugged Crown Jewel (again, no mention of Saudi Arabia).

-Ember Moon came out to her music. Then Nia Jax joined her. [c]

(2) EMBER MOON & NIA JAX vs. TAMINA & DANA BROOKE

Cole broke news that there would be a battle royal at Evolution with the winner getting a future title shot. They showed Nia, Moon, IIconics, Dana, Tamina, and Alicia Fox in the graphic. Graves predicted Nia would outlast the entire field. Cole announced more competitors in the battle royal: Asuka, Mandy Rose, Carmella, Lana, Sonya Deville, Naomi, and the returning Torrie Wilson. Renee said Torrie was one of her favorites. Graves said he wanted to change his pick to Mandy Rose. Tamina conveniently held Moon on the mat during the battle royal entrant announcements.

Nia tagged in against Tamina. Tamina struggled to lift Nia the first time, but on a  second attempt she delivered a Samoan Drop. Both were slow to get up, though. Graves wondered what kind of damage that did to Nia mentally, not just physically. “That was ridiculous!” Graves marveled. Tamina crawler over and tagged in Dana. Nia quickly took over and splashed her. Then moon hit the Eclipse for the win.

WINNERS: Moon & Jax in 4:00.

-Afterward Moon stepped between Jax and Tamina. Tamina superkicked Nia. Moon started at Tamina and they seemed to end up on the same page. They worked together to dump Nia over the to rope. Moon shrugged. The fans booed. As Tamina gloated, Moon tried to dump her over the top rope from behind. Tamina hung on. Dana then dumped both Moon and Tamina over the top rope.

(Keller’s Analysis: Paint-by-numbers but effective set-up for the battle royal. Who was hoping Asuka would be in a battle royal on WWE’s first-ever all-women’s PPV?)

-Cole very quickly pivoted to “a story that has been grabbing headlines all week.” Wait, he’s going to address Saudi Arabia, you thought? Nope. The Bellas turning on Rousey. They aired a video package on it. [c]

-Cole said TMZ headlined with a story on them. “Nikki Bella Blasts Rousey… You’re An Entitled ‘Do Nothing’ bitch” said the headline. “Bitch” was not asterisked.

[HOUR TWO]

-Rousey made her ring entrance. They found grown men and little girls in the crowd star-struck by her. Rousey smiled on her way to the ring, but then got serious after entering the ring. A “Ronda!” chant broke out. Rousey said the Bellas betrayed her in front of the whole world and she just wants an explanation. “You guys at least owe me that,” she said. “Come out and at least tell me why.”

The Bellas came out onto the stage to big boos. Nikki said they don’t owe her an explanation. Brie said, “This is show business, not show friends.” She said Rousey disrespected them and everything they have done for this business. Brie asked if she expected them to sit on the sidelines and watch her. Nikki said she’s still trying to figure out why she’s there. “You’re just a loser who doesn’t deserve it,” she said. “You never deserved a title match and you sure as hell don’t deserve to be champion. I do.” Nikki said they made the word “Diva” mean something powerful and inspired pride in little girls in the crowd. She said the championship she carries around wouldn’t exist without them.

Rousey began to talk, but then asked if they have something else to say. Nikki asked if she was going to break their arms if they kept talking. Rousey said she would try. Fans loudly chanted “Break her arms!” She said she tried her best to be respectful. She said she knew WWE was their territory first and she tried not to be judgmental “even though everything the Divas era stood for made me sick to my stomach.” Mixed reaction from crowd. “I tried my best to give you the benefit of the doubt that you were doing the best you could with what you had.” She said when when the Bellas were so happy and accepting of her, she thought they could be sister soldiers and pursue the same goal and be driving forces in the Women’s Evolution together, “but that was my mistake.” She said she was too idealistic and too naive to see they are the embodiment of a stereotype. The crowd seemed to be turning on her. “DNB’s – Do Nothing Bellas,” she said. She said the Bellas were just desperate for attention the they ran up to her. She said the only time they ever impressed her was how far they went with minimal talent. She said they leeched off of the names of their men. Big “ohhhh!” from the crowd on that one. Then a “Yes!” chant broke out. Rousey said they dilute their move sets. “You’re not pioneers,” she said. “You’re relics of the past looking to be eviscerated like smallpox.” The fans laughed. That sounded like a Kane line.

Rousey said she could rip their arms off and beat them with them. She said the only thing stopping her at Evolution will be the referee, and they’re not very good at holding her back. She said she is much more than a pretty face with a deadly body. “I will ruin you,” she said. “No matter how much money is poured into marketing you, I will make the name Bella into a four letter word that will be remembered as the societal sore it always has been.”

Nikki asked if she really thinks they’re do-nothing Bellas. Brie said anyone who says that sounds really jealous of them. Boos. Brie said the word Bella has done more last week worldwide than she has her entire career here. “You’re welcome,” said Nikki. Brie said they’re the ground-breakers. Nikki said they have knocked down more doors than she ever has and she doesn’t compare to the Bellas. Rousey said she’s knocked down doors in Judo, Strikeforce, UFC, and “now my home in WWE.” She said the only door Nikki ever knocked down was a door to John Cena’s bedroom. “And he eventually threw you out of that exact same door.”

Rousey asked if they’re going to come to the ring to catch the ass whipping they deserve or will she have to come get them. The Bellas looked at each other, took a few steps toward the ring, but then stopped. Nikki did a seductive dance. Then five security members walked to the ring. Cole wondered if the Bellas brought their own security team. Rousey gave two of them judo throws. Another guy told her to calm down. Rousey lifted him and gave him a Samoan drop. The Bellas, meanwhile, bailed out to the back. Fans chanted “Ronda! Ronda!”

(Keller’s Analysis: I wasn’t sure a few times there whether Ronda was losing some of the fans, but in the end the segment added a lot of heat to their Evolution main event. The wording Ronda used at times just didn’t sound authentic at all, but other than that, she delivers lines with a raw emotion that feels real even when her words sound scripted. The Bellas were great here.)

-The announcers talked about last week’s battle royal, which Kurt Angle won under a mask last week.

-Backstage Bobby Roode and Chad Gable told Angle they love his new look. Angle was dressed in a Hawaiian shirt and straw hat. He said his stress level is way down so his vacation has been great. Gable asked if they could please get some of those hats. Roode said the shirt was… Gable jumping and and said “glorious.” No Way Jose and his parade went past Angle. Angle danced as they did. Baron Corbin then walked in and asked if he realizes how stacked the World Cup is. He asked when the last time was he had a singles match in WWE anywhere. Angle said, “Twelve years.” Corbin said he has arranged a match for him tonight to prepare himself. Angle said he doesn’t have his gear with him. Corbin said he’d figure it out. Corbin said the match is a handicapped match against Authors of Pain.

-Graves hyped Trish Stratus and Lita would be out later for a special appearance.

-Cole mentioned the Susan G. Komen charity and then Dean made his ring entrance. [c]

(3) DEAN AMBROSE vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER – World Cup Qualifier

A few minutes in Ziggler drove Dean’s head into the mat as Dean leaped off the top rope. That was good for a two count. They cut to a break. [c]

Back from the break, Dean avoided a charging Ziggler, who went head-first into the corner. Dean then scored a two count. Ziggler knocked Dean off balance on the top rope. Then he set up a top rope superplex, but Dean blocked it and lifted and dropped Ziggler who sold a knee issue. The ref checked on Ziggler. Drew ran out to distract Dean. Seth ran out to go after Drew. Dean leaped onto Drew. As Seth tried to help Dean into the ring, Dean shoved him down and got into the ring himself. Graves said it was just the heat of the moment. Ziggler then surprised Graves with a superkick for the win.

WINNER: Ziggler in 10:00.

-After the match Seth and Dean had a tense staredown. After some words, Dean shoved his way past Seth and walked to the back. Seth pursued Dean and spun him around on the stage. “What’s your problem, pal?” Seth said. “What’s your deal? You need to relax. I called you a lunatic for a reason.” Reigns then came out to boos. He stepped between them and told them to chill out. Corbin’s music played and he walked onto the stage. He asked if they’re still having problems. Corbin said he doesn’t want them to dissolve on his watch. He booked The Shield vs. Braun & Dolph & Drew in the main event tonight. Reigns gave Corbin a death stare.

(Keller’s Analysis: Man, this is a lot of these six intermixing in angles and matches. They’re good together but this is getting to be too much of a good thing quickly.)

-Cole plugged AOP vs. Angle. Graves said it’ll be a slaughter.

-Finn Balor and Bayley came to the ring as Cole plugged the premiere of NXT UK on WWE Network this Wednesday. [c]

-Backstage Drew told Braun he wants him to crush Dean and Seth and make Roman watch. Braun said he knows how to beat The Shield and hurt them. He asked Drew if he’s dumb. He told him to listen to him and listen good. He said if any of them screw up tonight, they’re going to get these hands. Cole said maybe The Shield isn’t the only team not on the same page tonight headed into the main event.

(4) JINDER MAHAL (wAlicia Fox, Sunil Singh, Samir Singh) vs. FINN BALOR (w/Bayley)

Graves said the biggest news in WWE all day is the return of Samir Singh. Jinder locked on an early side headlock mid-ring. Just as Graves said Jinder is a former World Champion, Balor landed a Sling Blade and the Coup De Grace for a relatively sudden clean pinfall victory.

WINNER: Balor in 2:00.

(Keller’s Analysis: Samir came back for that? Last he saw Jinder in the ring, Jinder was on top of the world, and now he loses a virtual squash in under two minutes.)

-Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush walked out. Lashley gave Finn a staredown and then flexed his arms as Rush talked on the house mic and said nobody looks like him or smells like him. Lashley stood on the second rope rope and posed for the crowd as Lio continued to talk him up. Cole said Lashley was in action next.

(Keller’s Analysis: Lashley’s heel demeanor is better than his babyface persona, such as there was one. It’d be nice to actually hear from Lashley explaining his change in attitude, though. As bland as he was, he seemed like a genuinely nice guy, and this is a completely different guy.)

-To hype tomorrow night’s Mixed Match Challenge, Miz and Asuka did a selfie promo. Then Rusev and Lana vowed to crush Asuka. Rusev flexed his pecs and said, “We will win.” [c]

(5) BOBBY LASHLEY (w/Lio Rush) vs. TYLER BREEZE

Graves said Lio is known in some circles as the human canker sore. He told Lashley to pose for the crowd before the match. Lashley flexed. Renee said it is very impressive. Graves got impatient and wanted the match to start. Lio bragged that not one person looks like him. It went on and on. The match finally began. Cole noted that Owens had surgery on his knees after the beating Lashley gave him last week. Lashley methodically beat up Breeze and the arena was stunningly silent. Breeze teased a comeback, but Lashley cut it off. More zero heat. Lio chanted “Lashley! Lashley!” Graves said he might be the most annoying personality he’s ever seen. Lashley finished Breeze with his Dominator powerslam for the win.

WINNER: Lashley in 4:00.

(Keller’s Analysis: Lio is so grating, it’s more of a mute-button or channel-turning or fast-forwarding type of heel heat, I think.) [c]

-The announcers applauded Titus O’Neal for being on the Ebony Power 100 along with James Harden, Steph Curry, Venus Williams, and others for his charity and community work.

[HOUR THREE]

-Trish came out to what sounded like zero reaction. Absolutely zero. Then Lita came out to some reaction. Cole plugged that Lita & Trish face Mickie James & Alexa Bliss at Evolution. As Lita began talk about it feeling good to be back, she was interrupted by Bliss and Mickie. Bliss said, “Lita, I’ve got this.” She said she knows what she was about to say. She mockingly said Lita was going to tell Trish that she was fearful of Bliss running circles around her at Evolution. Bliss said based on the looks on their faces, she nailed it.

Mickie then imitated Trish. She said she got the lips thing down. Bliss then did the point to the sky thing. They were proud of themselves. The crowd reacted like they didn’t care or didn’t even know Trish and Lita enough to be offended. Bliss said they are the epitome of nostalgia, but nostalgia is fleeting. Mickie said they’ve been kicking butt for years all over the world while Lita and Trish have been enjoying retirement. They agreed Lita and Trish would be easy prey. Mickie said they can’t just get up off the coach without practice and step in with the likes of them. If they think they can, they’re sadly mistaken.

Trish asked if they’re serious. She said they have the chance at Evolution to make history and they’re out there talking about practice. She said they changed the game for women, yet they’re out there talking about practice. Lita and Trish mockingly said, “Practice.” Fans began to applaud. Graves said, “Alan Iverson is rolling over in his grave.” (People are now Googling whether Iverson is dead.) They went on and on, then offered to “practice right now.” They took their jackets off and got ready to fight. Mickie said, “They’re serious, they took their jackets off.” Bliss and Mickie did what the Bellas did earlier – took a few steps toward the ring before turning to leave. Cole said they’ll have to wait for a week from Sunday to see them fight. Lita’s music then played as Lita and Trish picked up their jackets.

-Backstage the Riott Squad walked up to Bayley. Sarah Logan said the sight of Bayley’s smile makes her want to vomit. Ruby Riott said Bayley’s only special power is the speed she runs away from a fight. They laughed and left. [c]

(6) AUTHORS OF PAIN (w/Drake Maverick) vs. THE CONQUISTADOR

Graves said this will be great as AOP are about to dispatch of a Hall of Famers before their very eyes. It was pretty obvious Angle wasn’t under the mask, despite the guy’s attempts to imitate his stance. Corbin sat on the stage and smugly watched. Conquistador went for an early German suplex, but Aikem blocked it. Conquistador went for a bad ankle lock. Graves said something was a little off. Corbin laughed and applauded. “I’m not entirely sure this is Kurt Angle,” he said. AOP finished Conquistador quickly. Drake asked them to unmask him. They did and it was an unknown jobber. Angle then came up behind Corbin and gave him an Angle Slam. Graves said Angle is dressed up as Hunter S. Thompson. “Fear and Loathing in Philadelphia!” shouted Cole.

WINNERS: AOP in 1:00.

(Keller’s Analysis: The crowd was dead for that. Not sure how it’s technically legal for Angle to avoid his obligation to wrestle AOP as Corbin demanded!)

-The Riott Squad squired mustard and ketchup on Natalya’s locker room door. [c]

(7) NATALYA (w/Bayley, Sasha Banks) vs. RUBY RIOTT (w/Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan)

Natalya came out and said she had back-up – first Bayley, and then Sasha. Natalya went after Ruby aggressively at the start. When Natalya applied a sharpshooter, Logan broke it up for the DQ. A six-way brawl broke out. The three babyfaces cleared the ring.

WINNER: Natalya via DQ.

(Keller’s Analysis: That was Sasha’s big return to Raw?)

-Elias complained to an assistant that he didn’t offer him a green guitar pick on a tray with over a dozen picks. Elias said it was a test and he failed. [c]

-Elias sat mid-ring and talked to the crowd. He said the future hinges on one universal truth, one John Cena knows deep in his soul, which is that WWE stands for “Walk With Elias!” The crowd loudly chanted it twice. Elias said he went to lunch with Carson Wentz, the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles football team. He said Wentz said his knee injury wasn’t as painful as having to pretend to care about the “depraved and shameful” city of Philadelphia. Then he took some digs at the new Philadelphia Flyers mascot. Apollo Crews interrupted. Elias said his career is now in his hands, but tonight won’t be the night he makes a star out of him. Crews said he doesn’t play guitar and he’s not very funny, but none of that matters when he steps into the ring. Elias said he heard Crew is talented, but he’s never seen it, like the Flyers winning a Stanley Cup. Crews took a dig at Elias as a musician. Elias said he’s held his temper for too long and sat in the back for too long, watching people pass him by, including Elias. He said he’s sick of it. Elias asked what Crews has ever done. When Elias took a swing at Crews, Crews landed an enzuigiri and then pressed him over his head for 15 seconds before dropping him. “That’s who I am!” shouted Crews.

-Backstage Reigns was talking with Dean. Cole said it must be an interesting conversation, but then went on to talk over it as he plugged the main event.

-A commercial aired for Crown Jewel. It didn’t mention Saudi Arabia once, but it did list the start time as noon ET. [c]

(8) DREW MCINTYRE & DOLPH ZIGGLER & BRAUN STROWMAN vs. THE SHIELD (Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins)

The heels came out first. Then out came The Shield together. Cole plugged the Smackdown matches scheduled for Crown Jewel. They cut to an early break. [c]

They played up Seth bumping into Dean inadvertently. Several minutes later Ziggler broke up a jackknife pinfall attempt by Dean. Dean then gave Drew a Dirty Deeds. Ziggler shoved Seth into Ambrose to break up the pin. Graves said it wasn’t Seth’s fault. Cole said it’s the third time that’s happened.

[OVERRUN]

Seth tried to talk Dean out of snapping. Dean said in six years he never messed up, and now tonight it keeps happening. Seth spun Dean around and Dean almost gave him a Dirty Deeds, but he let go. Ziggler shoved Dean into Seth and then hit a Zig Zag from behind for a near fall. When Drew went for a Claymore kick, Reigns intercepted him. Reigns avoided a charging Braun. Drew then gave Braun an accidental Claymore when Reigns moved. Drew yelled out in frustration. Reigns then speared Drew. Ziggler snuck up behind Reigns and set up a Ziag Zag, but Dean and Seth worked together and lifted Ziggler for a Triple Powerbomb to get the win. Cole said it wasn’t pretty. All three embraced. Cole said in the end the Hounds of Justice stood tall together for the good of the team. Graves said sometimes all it takes is a big-time win and some cold ones to patch things up.

WINNERS: The Shield in 14:00.

-Drew sat up in the ring as Braun was fuming at ringside. Braun stood over Ziggler as Ziggler sat up. “What did I tell you?” he shouted. “If you screwed up, you were going to get these hands.” He lifted Ziggler and then gave him a running powerslam. Drew then gave Braun a Claymore. Cole said the first one was accidental, but that one was on purpose. The fans had no idea how to react. Drew walked to the back on his own. Braun stood and then stumbled.

  1. Terrible show. Why do they start groups like The Shield reunited and Strowman and Ziggler and McIntyre and break them up so fast. The fans did not seem to be into anyone at this show tonight. I never thought I would say I like The Bellas better then someone else but Rhonda Rousey just annoys me more then anyone else.
