Extreme Rules Match Card

Seth Rollins VS Samoa Joe (Extreme Rules match)

Extreme Rules kicks off in style with a massive blood match between two rivals, hell-bent on taking each other out for good here on RAW. Seth Rollins enters first to a thunderous pop from the capacity crowd, eyeing the weapons surrounding the ring as he does. Second in is Samoa Joe, the man looking to avenge Triple H's honor by destroying his former protégé. The action starts off hot before the bell can even ring, because while Joe makes his entrance...

tumblr_ntkb8nDIbD1rdx8ebo1_500.gif

Suicide Dive from Seth Rollins! Rollins is wasting no time trying to end this rivalry once and for all. As Joe is down, Rollins immediately grabs a kendo stick from ringside and starts wailing on the Samoan Submission Machine. Shot after shot rains down on Joe, with Rollins only stopping with the kendo stick breaking in half over Joe's back. As Joe's back is covered in welts and traces of blood, Rollins begins thinking of what he can do next. His eye then catches sight of a table, and he places the table inside of the ring, looking to use it for later. Unfortunately for Seth, he takes too long with the table, and when he turns his sights back to Joe, he's met with...

tenor.gif?itemid=8182618

A steel chair right to the right leg! Though Rollins has managed to recover mostly from his prior knee injury, this chair shot seems to bring all that pain back, and Rollins crumbles to the floor. Joe wastes no time following up, slamming Rollins' leg on the steel steps a few times. Then, while Rollins' leg is still on the steps, Joe grabs the chair and slams it on Rollins' leg again, sandwiching it between the chair and the steel steps. With Rollins writhing in agony, Joe takes a moment to taunt the crowd a bit. As Joe comes back to Rollins, he's hit by an enziguri, but Joe shrugs it off, the move doing much more damage to Seth than Joe. Joe then lifts Rollins on the apron and gives him a massive chop, then rolling the Kingslayer into the ring. Once again, Joe takes a moment to taunt the crowd, giving Rollins the tiniest of windows to recover. As Joe rolls in, though, Rollins blasts him with a desperation...

Blackout! Rollins crumbles to the mat in agony after the move, unable to make the cover, and both men are down. However, this gives Rollins just enough time to get some life back into his right leg, and while Joe is down, Rollins takes the opportunity to set up the table in the middle of the ring. As Rollins sets it up, Joe is finally starting to get back up, and Rollins then follows by superkicking Joe, causing Joe to stumble on top of the set-up table. Rollins sees this opportunity and begins to climb the ropes, though the pain in his knee does considerably slow him down. As Rollins reaches the top, Joe is still down on the table, and Rollins attempts an incredible...

Phoenix Splash, but Joe rolls out of the way! Rollins crashes and burns right through the table! Joe wastes no time, immediately grabbing Rollins with the Coquina Clutch. Rollins tries to fight, but he's too worn down from the failed Phoenix Splash. Rollins passes out quickly in the hold, forcing the referee to call for the stoppage.

The winner of the match, Samoa Joe!

Samoa Joe picks up an incredible victory, much to the chagrin of the audience, and Joe celebrates over his fallen foe. Rollins' demons come back to haunt him yet again, and it appears that Samoa Joe has gotten the revenge that Triple H wanted.

Paige VS Bayley VS Sasha Banks (RAW women's title)

In the first of five title matches tonight on Extreme Rules, we see three of the best women in the WWE face off for the chance to be RAW women's champion. First in is Bayley to a modest pop from the crowd, looking to reclaim a title she never truly lost. Out next is Sasha Banks, who receives the quietest reaction of the match, and she's looking to not only win the RAW women's title back, but to finally hold it for a considerable length of time. Then, finally, is the recently returned Paige, notably without the rest of Absolution following her, who looks to win a proper women's title on the main roster. 

The match begins, with Bayley and Sasha immediately working together to go after Paige and eliminate her from the equation. With both other women attacking her, Paige opts to roll out of the ring. However, she's met with a suicide dive from Sasha Banks, causing Paige to tumble into and over the announce tables, taking Paige out of the equation for a bit. After the dive, Bayley rolls Sasha in the ring and goes for a quick pin, which Sasha immediately kicks out of. Sasha stares Bayley down in surprise at her tactic, but Bayley just shrugs. Bayley and Sasha then square off with each other for a bit, now that the third party has been seemingly neutralized. However, they do keep an eye on the announce area, and when Paige recovers, both women immediately go after her again, throwing her into the timekeeper's area. It's clear they want to keep this bout between one another with as few outside distractions as possible. Bayley and Sasha put on a great bout in front of the audience, with Paige seemingly taken out of the equation entirely. However, just as it seems that Sasha Banks has the victory in her sights, taking down Bayley with a Meteora, she's caught by surprise with a...

Q1Czp7K.gif

Bayley to Belly! Before Bayley can make the cover, though, Paige runs in and decks her with a massive running knee. Bayley rolls away, and Paige goes for the cover on the downed Sasha Banks, scoring the pinfall.

The winner of the match, and NEW RAW Women's champion, Paige!

Paige celebrates her victory as Bayley sits on the outside of the ring, dejected at being outsmarted by the Anti-Diva. Paige has capped off an amazing return with a true women's championship now in her grasp, and she looks forward to later tonight, hoping Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville can achieve similar success.

.

The Bar VS The Good Brothers (RAW tag team titles)

Extreme Rules then continues with the two teams that made it to the finals of the RAW tag team titles tournament facing off, as The Bar and The Good Brothers rekindle their feud from earlier this year, where Gallows and Anderson won the RAW tag team titles from Sheamus and Cesaro at Royal Rumble.

The match begins hot, with Cesaro kicking things off against Anderson. The two more technically savvy members of the teams put on an impressive display, dazzling the audience early, though as always, they're firmly behind the Swiss Superman. Cesaro and Anderson wrestle for a few minutes before both agreeing to tag in their larger partners, leaving the bruisers of the teams to go at it. Sheamus and Gallows go blow for blow for a bit, but Gallows is able to get the advantage off a distraction from Anderson. As The Good Brothers wear down Sheamus, the crowd surprisingly begins to get behind the former WWE champion. Sheamus fights back against his two opponents, and is able to score enough of an opening to tag in the Swiss Cyborg, Cesaro. Cesaro comes in hot, going after both men with incredible fire and fury, with the audience reacting strongly to the seemingly limitless athlete. Cesaro levels the legal man, Anderson, with a flurry of uppercuts. However, just as Cesaro has him in position for a Neutralizer, Gallows levels Cesaro with a big boot. Sheamus dives in to stop Gallows and takes him out in the process. However, this distracts the referee, who's watching Sheamus and Gallows go after one another. While the referee is distracted, Anderson takes the opportunity to blast Cesaro with a low blow, drawing the ire of the entire WWE universe. Anderson rolls up Cesaro, the referee not seeing the dirty tactic, and he scores the pin.

Your winners, and NEW RAW tag team champions, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, the Good Brothers!

Gallows and Anderson celebrate their second set of RAW tag team titles, the audience displeased by this outcome. Sheamus and Cesaro sit on the outside of the ring, dissatisfied by the outcome, but they leave together, still unified. Although the Good Brothers came away on top this time, I doubt their issues with The Bar are over quite yet.

.

Roman Reigns VS Braun Strowman (Extreme Rules match)

Up next is the second of three Extreme Rules matches of the evening, as Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman collide in a bout that the arena might not even be able to contain. Braun enters first to a thunderous reaction from the audience, his general destructive habits making him a clear favorite of the crowd. Next up is Roman, who couldn't possibly receive a more opposite reaction, the crowd firmly against the Big Dog.

The match begins hot, with Braun ramming into Roman as he's entering the ropes. the bell rings and Braun exits the ring, immediately slamming Roman into the ring post. As Roman lies prone on the ring post, Braun then grabs a chair from under the ring. He tries to hit Roman with the chair, but Roman moves at the last second, causing the chair to collide with the ring post. Braun then turns back to Roman, looking to hit him with the chair again, but Roman punches the chair and hits the chair into Braun's face. Braun drops the chair and is groggy, leaning against the ring post to gather his senses, leading to Roman hitting him with a Superman Punch! As Braun's face collides with the ring post, Roman sees his opportunity, hops on the apron and runs at Braun, leaping off and leveling him with a second Superman Punch! As Braun is down, Roman grabs the chair Braun used earlier and starts leveling him right in the back with the chair. Braun tries to get away, moving over to the ringside barricade. As Braun tries to recover in front of the timekeepers area, Roman backs off. However, he then runs the length of the ring and goes for a spear right into Braun, looking to put him through the barricade! Unfortunately, Braun moves and Roman charges head-first into the barricade, his speed working against him and nearly knocking him out. Braun then lifts Roman's limp body into the ring, following up with a...

tenor.gif?itemid=9948295

Running Powerslam! Braun follows with a cover and picks up the quick, but not particularly decisive, victory.

The winner of the match, Braun Strowman!

However, as Braun celebrates his win, Roman blasts Braun with a steel chair yet again! Roman absolutely decimates the monster among men as the boos rain down upon him, with him soaking the jeers up. Roman knocks Braun out of the ring, and Braun again moves towards the outside ring post to recover. Roman sees this opportunity, wraps Braun's arm around the post, and begins bashing it with a steel chair! Officials come out to break it up, but they can't stop the crazed Samoan. Braun tries to escape again, but he's caught at the ringside steps by a huge dropkick from Roman. Roman then grabs Braun's arm, places it on the steel step, and crushes it with the chair yet again! More officials rush the ring, as well as other RAW superstars, and finally, Roman decides he's satisfied, leaving the arena. Medical personnel tell Braun to come with them, but Braun pushes them away with his functioning arm. Braun leaves the arena, clutching his limp arm, but refusing to accept any help from anyone on his way out, getting an incredibly positive reaction from the crowd in the process.

.

Dean Ambrose VS Sami Zayn (United States championship)

In the simplest match on the card, a title match between a champion wanting to establish himself and a challenger wanting to prove himself, two of the most beloved stars on the roster in Dean Ambrose and Sami Zayn compete, with Ambrose's US title on the line. Sami Zayn enters first, his infectious charisma transferring easily to the capacity crowd. However, his pop is dwarfed by the former WWE champion, Dean Ambrose, the member of the shield who desperately wants to prove himself as the best member of the popular faction. 

The bout starts off hot, with the two scrappy fighters take no time to size each other up, leveling each other with strikes immediately. Ambrose gets the upper hand, being the bigger man, but Sami is able to use his speed to catch Dean off guard. Zayn catches Ambrose with an arm-drag, causing Dean to roll to the outside. Zayn then follows by trying to hit Dean with a suicide dive, but Ambrose side-steps. Though Zayn recovers, Ambrose levels him with a monstrous clothesline. Ambrose then rolls Zayn into the ring, and Dean goes to the top rope, coming down on Zayn with his signature elbow drop. Ambrose goes for the pin, but Zayn kicks out. Ambrose then pushes Zayn into the turnbuckle, laying into him with strikes and chops. He then runs the length of the ring, looking to hit Zayn with a huge clothesline, but Zayn recovers and counters with a Blue Thunder Bomb! Zayn covers him, but only gets a two. Zayn doesn't stop there, though, using this adrenaline boost to lift the champion and place him in the corner. Zayn then looks to go for a Helluva Kick, but Ambrose sidesteps at the last second. Zayn's kick totally misses and stretches his hamstring, causing him to hold the injured leg. As he does this, Ambrose catches him with a...

dean-ambrose-3793-dirty-deeds-to-triple-

Dirty Deeds! Ambrose makes the cover, and he gets the victory!

The winner of the match, and STILL United States champion, Dean Ambrose!

Ambrose celebrates his victory, but he turns his attention to his downed foe, Sami Zayn. He attempts to shake Sami's hand, but Sami pushes it away, walking away in anger. Ambrose shrugs it off and continues celebrating, but the crowd seems concerned about Sami Zayn and how he'll handle yet another huge loss.
.

Mandy Rose/Sonya Deville VS Nia Jax/Tamina (RAW women's tag team titles)

In the second of two women's matches and tag team matches, we see Absolution take on the team of Nia Jax and Tamina. Absolution enters first, this time with Paige in tow, holding her newly won RAW women's championship. Second out is Nia Jax and Tamina, with Nia immediately setting her sights on Paige. Tamina is able to hold her back and tell her to focus on the task, but Nia doesn't take her eyes off Paige throughout their entire entrance.

The match begins with Tamina and Mandy Rose, and though Mandy tries to take the fight to Tamina, she's immediately batted away. Mandy tags in Sonya quickly, who fares much better, as though Tamina has the strength advantage, Sonya uses her speed and striking ability to catch her off guard. However, Sonya isn't able to maintain the advantage for long, with Tamina's strength finally catching Sonya, leveling her with a massive shoulder tackle. As this happens, Paige begins to tease Nia Jax some more. Though Nia refuses to take the bait this time, this does catch the referee off guard, who warns Paige to stop or she'll be thrown out. As the referee is distracted, Mandy Rose runs into the ring and rams her full body weight directly into the back of Tamina's knee, felling the much larger athlete. Mandy rolls out before the referee can notice anything, and Sonya follows on this opening her partner has given her, targeting Tamina's leg with strikes and submissions. Sonya and Mandy then use old-fashioned tag team tactics to wear down Tamina, specifically targeting her leg, and Nia Jax is unable to do anything to save her partner. However, an opening arises when the legal participant, Mandy Rose, is pushed into her partner as a desperation move from Tamina. The two members of Absolution are groggy as their heads collide, and this gives Tamina the chance to tag in Nia Jax, who is an absolute house of fire. Nia tosses around Mandy like she weighs nothing, and every time Sonya tries to make the save, she's batted away by Nia. Soon, Nia is able to lay out Mandy with a huge...

tenor.gif

Leg drop! Nia goes for the pin, but Mandy is barely able to peel her shoulder off the mat at the last second. Nia then sees her partner, Tamina, who is begging to get into the match. Nia obliges and tags her in, with Tamina scaling the turnbuckle, looking for a Superfly Splash. However, Sonya tries to enter the ring, catching both the referee and Nia Jax's attention, and Paige then attacks Tamina's injured leg, weakening her enough for her to fall off the top turnbuckle. Nia sees what Paige is doing and immediately charges after the woman that cost her an opportunity to become RAW women's champion. Paige runs away up the entrance ramp, causing Nia to follow. Unfortunately, this leaves Tamina by herself, and Mandy is able to make the tag to Sonya Deville. Sonya then places Tamina in a heel-hook, and with no partner to make the tag to and no way to escape this move, as well as the excruciating pain her leg has already suffered in this match, Tamina is forced to submit.

The winners of the match, and NEW RAW women's tag team champions, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, Absolution!

Mandy Rose celebrates for a second, but Sonya keeps her submission locked in. Sonya tells Mandy to get two steel chairs, which she obliges to. Mandy gets the two chairs and re-enters the ring, handing one to Sonya, who has now released the submission. Both women begin utterly destroying Tamina's leg with repeated chair shots. Sonya then tells Mandy to put her chair under Tamina's leg, which Mandy does, and Sonya begins smashing Tamina's leg again, sandwiching her leg between the two steel chairs. Finally, Nia Jax returns to the arena to save her tag team partner, and when she does, Absolution finaly exits the ring. As Nia tries to console her partner, writhing in pain, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville are joined again by RAW women's champion, Paige, with all three women celebrating and holding their titles in the air.

Kevin Owens VS Finn Balor (World Heavyweight championship, Extreme Rules match)

Finally, in tonight's main event, the third Extreme Rules match and the fifth title match of the night, we see Kevin Owens look to overcome a long-standing rival in the form of Finn Balor. Their issues with one another date all the way back to NXT, as it was Finn Balor who beat Kevin Owens for the NXT title, but they were rekindled two months ago in a fatal four way for the World Heavyweight championship. Finn Balor was able to win that match by pinning Goldberg, in a match that also included Kevin Owens and Brock Lesnar, retiring the WCW legend and being the first World Heavyweight champion in years. Owens blames Balor for that loss, believing he should've been the first World Heavyweight champion of the New Era, but he vows to become the second. Balor believes that Owens was never worthy of being Universal champion in the first place, as he was never able to beat Balor for the title, only winning it due to an injury and subsequent vacation. Owens enters first, fired up and ready to take the fight to the man he could never seem to topple. Out second is Balor, but as expected...

tenor.gif

Out comes the demon, Finn Balor's alter ego that he only breaks out for necessary and massive occasions. Balor eyes up Owens as he enters, raising the World Heavyweight championship above his head, inciting more anger in the Prizefighter. As Balor enters, Owens chooses to back off and let the champion get his entrance, the first Extreme Rules match of the night to have a proper beginning. The announcer introduces both men, with the audience heavily behind the World Heavyweight champion, though Owens has his fair share of support, as well.

The match starts uncharacteristically slow, especially for an Extreme Rules match, as both men take the opportunity to size each other up and do some basic wrestling, looking to gain an early advantage. However, Owens stops this tactic quickly, resorting back to his typical strategy of rolling to the outside, hoping to get into his opponents head. Balor doesn't take the bait, though, as there's no getting into the head of the Demon. Owens realizes this and simply grabs the World Heavyweight title. Owens then decides to try to leave the arena, but as he heads towards the entrance ramp, Balor hits him with a suicide dive! Owens holds onto the title, and as Balor tosses Owens into the ring and enters afterwards, Owens blasts him in the face with his own championship. Owens goes for an early cover, but Balor kicks out, not going to be felled so easily. Owens now has the advantage, and seeing his downed opponent, he exits the ring again. He then pulls out as many steel chairs as he possibly can, throwing them all into the ring. he then grabs a ladder, but as he slides the ladder into the ring, he's met by a baseball slide from Balor. Owens is left a bit groggy, and Balor uses this time to pull the ladder in and grab a steel chair. However, as Balor grabs this chair, Owens enters with a huge superkick, kicking the chair right into Balor's face. Owens covers Balor, but again gets a two-count. Owens then grabs the ladder he brought in earlier and sets it up on the turnbuckle. He turns his attention to Balor, but he's caught by surprise with a slingblade from Balor! Owens is groggy and right in front of the ladder, leading to a shotgun dropkick from Balor, launching Owens into the ladder! Balor goes for the pin, but Owens kicks out. Balor then takes this opportunity to scale the turnbuckle, but the pain he's taken thus far slows him down. Owens goes for the coup de gras off the top, but Owens rolls away. Balor recovers and transitions his momentum into running the ropes, but as he runs towards Owens, he's caught by...

bdfd50a4bbcb7cb668fa3027c7a7df22b4937326

A Pop-Up Powerbomb on the mountain of steel chairs Owens set up earlier! Owens goes for the cover, but miraculously, the Demon is able to survive, kicking out at the last possible moment. Owens screams in a fit of rage as Balor refuses to go down. Owens then sees Balor's prone body, lying on a mountain of chairs, and his attention shifts to the ladder he brought in earlier. Owens sets up the ladder right next to Balor's body, and he begins scaling it, looking for something that will certainly end the match. Owens looks down at Balor from the top of the ladder, and he finally leaps off, attempting a frog splash. However, Balor moves at the last second, causing Owens to collide with the mountain of steel. Balor and Owens are both down, but Balor is able to recover first. He notices what Owens was attempting to do and the wheels begin turning in his head. He sets Owens on the mass of steel chairs, placing his body face-up, and he begins to scale the ladder. Balor looks down at Owens, the slightest hesitation on his face, but the audience urges him on. Balor obliges, and he flies off the ladder with an incredible...

b0d7073ef859e287ab54c8e6e92499ff185593e6

Coup de gras! Balor covers Owens, his body nearly buried in the pile of steel chairs, and he finally picks up the victory after this hellacious match.

The winner of the match, and STILL World Heavyweight champion, Finn Balor!

Balor then grabs his championship and scales the ladder once again, looking down at his fallen foe, his body nearly lost in the pile of steel chairs. Extreme Rules closes with Balor on top of the ladder, his championship raised high above his head, and the reign of the demon continuing.

RAW Episode 10

This RAW takes place the night after Extreme Rules, a PPV that saw three new champions crowned, two titles retained, and three vicious Extreme Rules matches. This episode of RAW begins with one of the men who lost an Extreme Rules match, Seth Rollins, in the middle of the ring. Rollins states that his loss at Extreme Rules to Samoa Joe was eye-opening, because it made him realize that he can't simply put his past behind him the way he thought when he beat Triple H at WrestleMania. Rollins states that he has many demons of his past that he needs to overcome, and the first of those is the Money in the Bank ladder match, a match he was unable to win on his own three years prior. He vows to win the match this year on his own and prove that the ladder match he won that earned him his first WWE title was no mere fluke. However, his first step to winning the Money in the Bank is to qualify for the match, which he plans to do against Kevin Owens in tonight's main event.

.

Alexa Bliss VS Mickie James (Women's Money in the Bank qualifying match)

The first match of the evening is an MITB qualifying match between old friends turned rivals in Mickie James and Alexa Bliss. Both women have had a streak of bad luck since coming to RAW, failing to qualify for a women's title and women's tag team title match, but they have an incredible opportunity to turn this fortune around and qualify for the inaugural women's Money in the Bank match, which has been known to completely turn around careers. A bit surprisingly, Alexa Bliss comes up short tonight against the veteran, Mickie James, and Mickie James is the first woman from RAW to qualify for Money in the Bank.

.

RAW General Manager, Stephanie McMahon, enters next, and she congratulates all the superstars that won their matches at Extreme Rules. She in particular focuses on the victories of the superstars who competed in Extreme Rules matches, stating that Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman and Finn Balor all displayed incredible performances. However, she then somberly follows by stating that Braun Strowman is not cleared to compete for the next few weeks, and very well could miss Money in the Bank, meaning that her original idea of a number one contender's match between him and Samoa Joe will be scrapped. Instead, she officially names Samoa Joe the number one contender for Finn Balor's World Heavyweight championship, and their title match will take place at Money in the Bank. Stephanie then concludes by stating that next week, the RAW tag team champions, The Good Brothers, will learn who their opponents are at Money in the Bank, as all other teams on RAW will compete in a tag team battle royal match for number one contendership.

.

American Alpha VS No Way Jose/Elias

In a bit of a preview for next week's ten-team battle royal, we see American Alpha take on the relatively new duo of Elias and No Way Jose. American Alpha is notable accompanied by Shelton Benjamin, who coaches them and gives them encouragement on the outside as the match plays out. With Benjamin's support, American Alpha is able to run through Jose and Elias, picking up a decisive victory ahead of the number one contender's battle royal next week.

.

Absolution is seen backstage, celebrating their newly won RAW women's and RAW women's tag team titles. Paige tells Mandy and Sonya that she's counting on them to win the Money in the Bank briefcase so she doesn't have to worry about a surprise cash-in. Before Mandy and Sonya can respond, though, Stephanie McMahon pops in, stating that after Absolution's attack at Extreme Rules, Tamina is not cleared to compete. Stephanie tells them that since they took away her chance at becoming Ms. Money in the Bank, she's taking their opportunity away, too, as Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville will not be given the chance to qualify for Money in the Bank. Absolution is livid at this news, but Stephanie is unwavering, telling them this is what happens when they mess with her plans.

.

Seth Rollins VS Kevin Owens (Men's Money in the Bank qualifier)

Finally, in tonight's main event, we see two of the men who lost their Extreme Rules matches compete for the chance to become Mr. Money in the Bank. Both men are clearly banged up, with Seth having a noticeable limp, and that much is obvious throughout their match. Though both men are slower than usual, they still fight with fire, carried by the prospect of winning the Money in the Bank briefcase. On this night, Seth Rollins would be the better man, picking up the victory over a long-time rival of his. RAW closes with Seth Rollins celebrating, the first man to qualify on the RAW side of Money in the Bank.

SmackDown Episode 10

SmackDown opens with Shane McMahon making a quick announcement, stating that at Money in the Bank, the New Day and the Usos will have the chance to settle their issues, as they will have a rematch at the PPV. This time, if there is any interference from anyone not involved in the bout, they will be fired immediately. Shane wishes both teams good luck, and he hypes up tonight's main event rematch between Pete Dunne VS Tye Dillinger with the third Money in the Bank slot for SmackDown on the line.

.

The Ascension VS Big Show/Kane

The team that ruined the main event of last week's SmackDown, The Ascension, will have a chance to prove their worth as a team against the largest team in the WWE, the Big Show and Kane. Though Kane and Show have the power advantage, The Ascension are not slacking in this department, and with the obvious speed advantage on their side, The Ascension picks up the massive win against the two veterans.

.

SmackDown then shifts to Shane McMahon's office, which is invaded by Naomi. Naomi demands another shot at the SmackDown women's championship, but Shane declines, saying that Naomi will instead have a women's Money in the Bank qualifying match next week. Naomi is visibly angered at having to earn a title shot, but Shane doesn't budge, as he believes opportunities must be won, and he needs every available woman on the SmackDown roster to compete in these qualifiers. Naomi storms out of the office, and before Shane can get a moment to relax, John Cena takes her place, demanding that Rusev be given a WWE championship match at Money in the Bank. Shane initially declines, but Cena is persistent, stating that Shane's been too focused on qualifying matches for Money in the Bank and not on finding him an opponent. Shane reluctantly agrees, and he officially announces that John Cena VS Rusev for the WWE championship will happen at Money in the Bank. Cena thanks Shane and leaves, ending the segment.

.

Becky Lynch/Charlotte VS The IIconic's

Up next, we see the two women who have already qualified for the SmackDown side of the women's Money in the Bank match take on the relentless IIconic's, who look to bounce back from a disappointing SmackDown women's tag title loss at Backlash. Naturally, The IIconic's are more unified than Becky Lynch and Charlotte, which eventually comes back to haunt the former friends. Charlotte eventually leaves Becky high and dry alone against the Aussie duo, and though she puts up a valiant effort, she is no match for the tandem. The IIconic's pick up a massive win, and Charlotte has now caused added injury to one of her Money in the Bank opponents.

.

SmackDown then cuts to a backstage promo with Baron Corbin, who already qualified for Money in the Bank two weeks ago. He simply states that his eyes have not shifted from the Intercontinental championship, but now, he looks to add a second title to his collection, and after he wins the Money in the Bank briefcase, he will be the man to end John Cena's glory run. 

.

Pete Dunne VS Tye Dillinger (Men's Money in the Bank qualifier)

In tonight's main event, and in a rematch from Backlash, we see two of SmackDown's newest stars compete, now with the opportunity to battle for the Money in the Bank briefcase on the line. Dunne is yet again alone, as he's opted to leave Tyler Bate and Jack Gallagher in the back for this bout, wanting to prove he can handle the Perfect 10 on his own. Dillinger enters this match with extra fire, wanting to put his issues with British Strong Style behind him once and for all. Unfortunately for Dillinger, he is unable to score the victory here, as he's once again put down by a Bitter End from Pete Dunne. Dunne now joins AJ Styles, Baron Corbin and Seth Rollins as the official participants for the men's Money in the Bank match. SmackDown concludes with Pete Dunne celebrating his impressive victory.

NXT Episode 10

Kassius Ohno VS Rezar

NXT opens with the Knockout Artist taking on the other half of the NXT tag team champions, Rezar. Akam is noticeably absent, potentially still seething over his elimination to Aleister Black last week. Unfortunately for Rezar, his luck fares no better than his tag team partner, as Kassius Ohno proves to be too much for the NXT tag team champion. Ohno joins Aleister Black and Hideo Itami in the semi-finals, and the fourth man will be determined in tonight's main event between Adam Cole and Andrade "Cien" Almas.

.

Shayna Baszler VS Kairi Sane

After Shayna's vicious assault on the Pirate Princess last week, Kairi Sane requested this match to try to get some revenge on Shayna before she moves up to the main roster. Unfortunately for Kairi, she falls like all the others have thus far, tapping out to a Kirifuda Clutch.

After the match, Shayna gets on the microphone and begins to call Asuka out, again threatening the NXT women's champion, but Asuka's entrance music hits before she can truly say anything. Asuka walks into the ring and looks Shayna dead in the eyes, with neither women flinching. Asuka then follows by saying she is making an open challenge for anyone who wants to face her for the NXT title, and that challenge is right now. Shayna chuckles and exits the ring, not buying into this mind game of the champion. Instead, as Shayna exits, Bianca Belair's music hits and she runs down to the ring, bumping into Shayna on the way, but not stopping. Bianca immediately attacks the champion and the bell rings.

Asuka VS Bianca Belair (NXT women's title)

Though Belair shows great fire against Asuka out of the gate, Asuka is able to snuff out that fire quickly, trapping Bianca in an Asuka Lock only half a minute into the match. Bianca quickly taps out, and Asuka stares Shayna down the whole time Bianca is submitting.

Your winner, and STILL NXT women's champion, Asuka!

Asuka and Shayna continue staring each other down, but as Bianca leaves and attempts to exit up the ramp, Shayna lays her out with a massive right hand, seemingly wanting the final word against NXT women's champion as the segment closes.

.

Adam Cole VS Andrade "Cien" Almas

Finally, in tonight's main event, we see one of the hottest new stars in NXT face a man who's managed to turn his luck around in impressive fashion as of late. Though Almas does show another fantastic performance, his lucky streak would end here, falling to a Last Shot from Adam Cole. Cole celebrates as NXT closes, with the NXT NOC tournament semi-finals displayed on the titantron for next week, those matches being Adam Cole VS Aleister Black and Kassius Ohno VS Hideo Itami.

RAW Episode 11

American Alpha VS The Bar VS SAnitY VS Bludgeon Brothers VS The Revival VS Heath Slater/Rhyno VS Drew McIntyre/Jinder Mahal VS The Colons VS The Golden Truth VS No Way Jose/Elias (Tag team title number one contender's battle royal)

Kicking off RAW tonight, we start with 20 bodies filling the ring, all fighting for the opportunity to challenge The Good Brothers at Money in the Bank for the RAW tag team titles. The Colons, the Golden Truth and the tandem of Jose/Elias take an early exit at the hands of the Bludgeon Brothers, but the large duo is teamed up on by the remaining participants, eliminating them. After this, SAnitY is eliminated by a massive suplex from Jason Jordan, with Shelton Benjamin cheering them on from the outside. However, Killian Dain of SAnitY then attacks Benjamin, distracting Jordan and causing him to be eliminated by The Revival. The remaining four teams square off with one another, but eventually, The Bar are teamed up on by the remaining six men, seeing them as the clear threat. The Bar tries to fight off the onslaught, but Sheamus is overpowered and eliminated by The Revival. However, The Revival are eliminated by Rhyno off the distraction, leaving McIntyre and Mahal to face Slater and Rhyno. McIntyre and Mahal attempt yet again to recruit Slater, and for a second, it seems to work, as Slater walks over to their side of the ring. However, this proves to a distraction, as McIntyre is Gored by Rhyno. Jinder Mahal is left alone against Slater and Rhyno, and he is ultimately eliminated by the inaugural SmackDown tag team champions.

Slater and Rhyno celebrate their victory, seemingly more united than ever before, and they set their sights on The Good Brothers at Money in the Bank, looking to be the second team to hold both sets of tag team titles.

.

After this segment concludes, RAW cuts backstage to see Absolution asking Stephanie McMahon about what will happen with their set of tag team titles at Money in the Bank. Paige then adds on by telling Stephanie she still doesn't have a challenger for her RAW women's title. Stephanie tells the three women that she's aware of this issue, but she needed every active woman on the roster to be involved in qualifying matches for Money in the Bank, especially now that Tamina's been injured and Absolution has been stripped of their opportunity at the briefcase. Stephanie tells the trio that they will not have to defend their titles at the titular PPV, to which Absolution responds happily, but Stephanie tells them they will have a match. She announces that her and Shane McMahon have been talking, and recognizing that they have a similar plight with the RAW and SmackDown women's champions, they have arranged a champions vs champions six-woman tag team match at Money in the Bank, where Absolution will take on the team of Maryse and the Bella Twins. Absolution simply promises to prove that the RAW women's division is superior at Money in the Bank, then they walk off.

.

Before the next women's Money in the Bank qualifying match, RAW cuts to a promo from Finn Balor. Balor says that he and Joe have a lot of history together, as it was Joe who ended Balor's 292 day NXT title reign. He states that Joe has proven time and time again to be the most dangerous man in the WWE, but Balor says that he knows how to beat the Samoan Submission Machine, and at Money in the Bank, he promises that history won't repeat itself, as Balor will retain his World Heavyweight championship.

.

Sasha Banks VS Carmella (Women's Money in the Bank qualifier)

In the second RAW women's Money in the Bank qualifier, we see three-time RAW women's champion, Sasha Banks, take on the cocky upstart, Carmella. Though Carmella does put forth an impressive effort against The Boss, Sasha is able to catch the Princess of Staten Island in a vicious Banks Statement, with Carmella tapping out in quick fashion. Sasha Banks now joins Mickie James, Becky Lynch and Charlotte in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

.

After the match, RAW cuts backstage to Nia Jax, who states that in two weeks, she has her Money in the Bank qualifier. She says that Absolution injured a close personal friend of hers in Tamina, and as revenge, she will win the Money in the Bank briefcase and steal the RAW women's title from their leader. 

.

Just before tonight's main event, Roman Reigns enters to a chorus of boos, which Roman seems to be actively egging on at this point. He gets on the microphone and says that even though he didn't win at Extreme Rules, it's a disgrace that he isn't the number one contender for the World Heavyweight championship after what he did to Braun Strowman. However, he says it doesn't really matter, as he plans to qualify for Money in the Bank tonight, and if that's the way he has to win the World Heavyweight championship, then he'll be happy to take it.

.

Roman Reigns VS Sami Zayn (Men's Money in the Bank qualifier)

Sami Zayn enters to a chorus of cheers, the audience happy that he's stopped Roman from talking any more, and the match is underway. Zayn shows another incredible performance, one very similar to his from Extreme Rules against Dean Ambrose, but he is simply no match for Roman Reigns, who puts down the Underdog from the Underground with a Spear. Roman Reigns now joins Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Baron Corbin and Pete Dunne in the men's Money in the Bank ladder match, and RAW closes with Roman celebrating to a dissatisfied RAW audience.

SmackDown Episode 11

Naomi VS Lana (Women's Money in the Bank qualifier)

SmackDown opens with another women's Money in the Bank qualifier, as former SmackDown women's champion Naomi looks to earn another opportunity at the title against SmackDown's newest female competitor, Lana. In a pretty quick match, Naomi runs through the Ravishing Russian in decisive fashion, making her submit to a Stretch Muffler. Naomi now joins Becky Lynch, Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Mickie James in the inaugural women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

.

After this match, SmackDown cuts backstage to Maryse and The Bella Twins, who announce that they've learned of their SmackDown VS RAW match at Money in the Bank against Absolution. They state that with the other women on the roster focused on Money in the Bank, they are free to divert all their attention into preparing for RAW's upstart trio. They promise to bring home the massive victory for SmackDown and prove which brand has the superior women's division, and they have requested a warm-up match for next week against any three women who want to test them ahead of Money in the Bank.

.

SmackDown then cuts to Shane McMahon's office, where he is seen talking to The Ascension. He tells The Ascension that they have been an impressive duo these past few weeks and are unquestionably in the conversation for championship gold, but if they interfere in the tag title match at Money in the Bank, any chance of them ever competing for the tag titles again will disappear. The Ascension say they understand, but they expect a championship match in the very near future, or the rest of the tag team division will have hell to pay.

.

Breezango VS British Strong Style

In a return match for Tyler Bate and Jack Gallagher, they face the duo of Tyler Breeze and Fandango, looking to get back on their winning ways. Though Breeze and Fandango do put up an impressive effort, they are no match for the Englishmen, falling to a Tyler Driver '97.

British Strong Style celebrates their victory, but after the match, Pete Dunne grabs a microphone and puts all of SmackDown on notice, claiming that after he wins the Money in the Bank briefcase, Bate and Gallagher will take the tag team titles, Dunne will successfully cash in, and British Strong Style will have complete control over all of SmackDown.

.

In the final segment before tonight's main event, we see The Broken Hardy's, with Matt Hardy being particularly strange. Jeff announces that the duo has taken some time off since losing to The Usos to refocus and figure out their strategy, and now that they're refreshed, they will be coming to procure the SmackDown tag team titles. Matt Hardy then repeatedly chants "PROCURE! PROCURE! PROCURE!" until the segment closes.

.

John Cena VS AJ Styles

In a SummerSlam and Royal Rumble rematch, we see another bout between two men who have already stolen the show every time they've been placed against one another. In another impeccable bout between the two, though not quite on the same level of their previous encounters, it seems that Cena is about to have victory secured, with AJ Styles on his shoulders in Attitude Adjustment position. However, he is suddenly levelled by a massive Machka Kick by Rusev, ending the match in favor of Cena. However, Rusev doesn't care about the match result, locking his Money in the Bank opponent in the Accolade to close out the show.

A very good and solid Smackdown for sure Meko. Cena vs Styles is a pretty good match however one that is PPV quality though. Although now I could see them teaming next week to take on Rusev and a partner of his choice.

Naomi winning was the right call since Lana isn't that well suited to compete in a Money in the Bank Ladder Match I feel.

I love the addition of British Strong Style and to have one of our favorites in Jack Gallagher in it is great.

NXT Episode 11

Aleister Black VS Adam Cole

In NXT's opening match, we see the first of two semi-final matches in the NXT title number one contender's tournament, as NXT's two hottest new stars clash, with only one man able to keep their undefeated streak intact. Adam Cole and Aleister Black dazzle the crowd, clearly making the most of their short 3 months so far in NXT, but on this night, Adam Cole wouldn't be enough for the Dutch Destroyer, falling to a Black Mass. Aleister Black wins, and will move on to face either Kassius Ohno or Hideo Itami next week.

.

NXT cuts backstage to NXT champion, Bobby Roode, who congratulates Aleister Black on his victory. However, he states that it really doesn't matter who wins, as nobody is on his level, and after this tournament proves who the second-best competitor on NXT is, he'll be happy to show them exactly why he's number one, and it will be absolutely glorious.

.

Shayna Baszler VS Bianca Belair

In a bout Belair requested to get one last bit of shine on her before she moves up to the main roster, Belair faces the seemingly unstoppable Queen of Spades, Shayna Baszler. Surprisingly, Belair puts up a much more impressive show than her last outing with Asuka, but ultimately, she falls to Baszler like everyone else has thus far, tapping to a Kirifuda Clutch.

After the match, Baszler gets on the microphone and says that William Regal has given her special permission to announce a match regarding the NXT women's championship. Next week, there will be a fatal four-way between the remaining women of the NXT division that Shayna and Asuka haven't already run through, citing Liv Morgan, Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan and Ember Moon as the participants, with the winner facing Asuka at Takeover: Chicago. However, Shayna follows up by offering the winner of the bout a chance to face her the week before Chicago, and she will be expecting her answer next week after the match. She wishes the four women luck, but follows up by saying it's not really gonna matter how lucky they are.

.

The Lucha Dragons VS Johnny Gargano/??? (NXT title number one contender's match)

In the final match before tonight's main event, we will finally see who the Authors of Pain will face at Takeover: Chicago for the NXT tag team titles. First out are the Lucha Dragons, who the NXT audience reacts to favorably, with their act seeming to have never lost steam on the black and gold brand. Out next is Johnny Gargano, who points to the entrance to reveal his tag team partner, Oney Lorcan! Lorcan has had his fair share of issues with the Authors of Pain lately, being eliminated by Akam in the NXT title number one contender's tournament, and he has joined up with the Rebel Heart of NXT in the pursuit of payback. Gargano, Oney and the Lucha Dragons all put on an incredible match that blows the NXT universe away, but ultimately, Lorcan would fall to a Salida del Sol from Kalisto, giving the Lucha Dragons the opportunity to face the Authors of Pain at Takeover: Chicago.

After the match, all four men shake hands, and Oney apologizes to Gargano for letting him down. Gargano tells him that it's alright and they'll get it together, but before Gargano can finish, both he and Oney are blindsided by the Authors of Pain! Akam and Rezar lay out the duo, but the Lucha Dragons act fast, immediately grabbing chairs from under the ring and running the champions off. The NXT tag team title match is set for Chicago, while Gargano and Oney will now have to put their full focus on winning the Cruiserweight championship at Chicago.

.

Hideo Itami VS Kassius Ohno

In tonight's main event, and the second semi-final match of the NXT title number one contender's tournament, we see two of the hardest hitting men in NXT go at it for the chance to not only face Aleister Black, but compete for the chance to become NXT champion. Kassius Ohno has made his desire to face Black clear over these past few months, while Itami's issues with Roode have only grown since his return. However, only one man can qualify for the finals, and on this night, that man would be Hideo Itami, putting Kassius Ohno away with a Go to Sleep.

After the match, Aleister Black's music hits and he makes his way down to the ring, staring down Hideo Itami. Both men shake hands, and NXT closes on the shot of the two men who will compete for number one contendership next week.

RAW Episode 12

Bayley VS Natalya (Women's Money in the Bank qualifier)

Raw opens with the third women's Money in the Bank qualifier, as two former champions look to win this opportunity to reclaim title gold. After a grueling match, with Natalya managing to do a lot of damage to Bayley's legs, Bayley is able to pull out a desperation Bayley to Belly and pick up the victory, joining Sasha Banks, Mickle James, Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Naomi in the women's Money in the Bank match.

.

RAW then cuts backstage to Absolution, who make it clear that Maryse and The Bella Twins have no chance, as Absolution is a unified trio, not some makeshift diva squad. They then follow by saying that if Maryse and The Bella's want to prove themselves a legit force by taking on a trio of women, Absolution will do the same next week, issuing an open challenge of their own.

Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal catch Heath Slater backstage and congratulate him on his victory last week, earning a match with the Good Brothers for the RAW tag team titles. Drew and Jinder try to remind Slater of the good times 3MB shared together, and now that all three are much better competitors and athletes, they could certainly replicate and maybe even surpass that success. However, before Drew and Jinder can get too far, Rhyno comes up and tells them to stay away from his tag team partner, as they are going to become RAW tag team champions and there's nothing Jinder and Drew can do about it. Jinder and Drew back off for now, but it doesn't look like the issues with these two teams are anywhere near over.

.

The Good Brothers VS The Bar

In a rematch from Extreme Rules, The Bar looks to get back onto their winning ways, while the RAW tag team champions look to pick up an impressive victory and send a message to their Money in the Bank challengers. After another incredible bout between these two teams, it is The Good Brothers who pull out another sneaky victory, getting their third consecutive victory over The Bar.

.

RAW then cuts backstage to The Revival, who cite their disappointment at coming up short last week, but who also claim that their unimpressed by The Good Brothers, as they feel they could beat Sheamus and Cesaro on their best day. The Revival lays down a challenge to the former RAW tag team champions, telling The Bar that any time they want to challenge the best tag team in the world, they'd be happy to prove why they own that distinction.

.

Finally, just before the main event, we see Dean Ambrose enter for his Money in the Bank qualifier, but he enters with microphone in hand. Ambrose says that his other two former Shield mates have already qualified for Money in the Bank, and he refuses to be the odd man out, but he wants to take it one step further, officially putting his United States championship on the line for this qualifying match.

Dean Ambrose VS Chris Jericho (Men's Money in the Bank qualifier, United States title match)

After Ambrose makes this announcement, his opponent for the night, Chris Jericho enters. These two have a long, storied history with one another, feuding only a year ago, but now, there's United States title gold and a Money in the Bank spot on the line. After an incredible bout between two of the top workers in the world, it is Dean Ambrose who comes out on top, extending his US title reign and joining Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Baron Corbin and Pete Dunne in the Men's Money in the Bank field. RAW closes with the United States champion celebrating, the audience firmly behind the Lunatic Fringe.

SmackDown Episode 12

Naomi/Charlotte/Becky Lynch VS Maryse/The Bella Twins

SmackDown opens with the open challenge of Maryse and The Bella's answered by the confirmed women's Money in the Bank participants, who are looking to send one final message ahead of their women's Money in the Bank ladder match. Unfortunately for them, dissention creeps its ugly head, and Maryse is able to score a pinfall over Naomi after she argues with Charlotte and Becky. Maryse and The Bella's celebrate their win, sending a huge message to Absolution ahead of their match at Money in the Bank.

After the match, Naomi, Becky Lynch and Charlotte erupt into a massive brawl, with officials being forced to break up the three women, looking to tear each other apart before they even get to Money in the Bank.

.

SmackDown then cuts backstage to the IIconic's, who laugh at how adorable Charlotte, Naomi and Becky Lynch are, thinking they have a chance at winning Money in the Bank. They then follow by promising the Bella Twins that after Billie Kay qualifies next week and wins Money in the Bank, they will divert their full attention once more on the SmackDown women's tag team titles, promising that SmackDown's future will be IIconic.

.

The Ascension VS The Hype Bros

In an exhibition bout, The Ascension mows through the Hype Bros. in quick and decisive fashion, continuing their already impressive win streak. Though The Ascension will not be involved in the SmackDown tag team title match at Money in the Bank, they will certainly be on the radar of whoever walks out of Money in the Bank with the titles.

.

In the final segment before tonight's main event, Tye Dillinger cuts a promo backstage simply saying that his issues with British Strong Style aren't finished. He will not sit idly by and let these three men come into SmackDown, injure beloved superstars like Daniel Bryan, and act like they run the place. Though Dunne has beaten Dillinger twice, Dillinger isn't going to just sit on the sidelines, and he promises that he and Dunne will clash again.

.

Just before the main event, a men's Money in the Bank qualifier between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, The Miz enters with a microphone in hand. He says that he was impressed by what Dean Ambrose did last night, and he doesn't want to be looked at as the inferior secondary champion. The Miz then announces that he will also put his Intercontinental championship on the line in tonight's Money in the Bank qualifying match.

.

The Miz VS Dolph Ziggler (Men's Money in the Bank qualifier, Intercontinental championship)

In a rekindling of the feud that highlighted SmackDown last year, also for the Intercontinental championship, history repeats itself as The Miz manages to overcome Dolph Ziggler, putting him away decisively with a Skull Crushing Finale. The Miz is now the final man to qualify for the SmackDown side of Money in the Bank, joining AJ Styles, Baron Corbin, Pete Dunne, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The Miz is joined by his wife, Maryse, and SmackDown closes with the Intercontinental champion and SmackDown women's champion celebrating, with the audience cheering them on.

NXT Episode 12

NXT opens with a promo video detailing the NXT title number one contender's tournament up to this point. Focus is especially placed on Aleister Black and Hideo Itami's rise to the top, and the video ends with a title card showing Itami VS Black as tonight's main event.

After this video, NXT then cuts to the ring, which is filled by Bobby Roode, who congratulates both men on making it this far. He says they've managed to impress everyone with their rise, but at Takeover: Chicago, he will impress everyone further when he beats tonight's victor and cements his position as the best, and the most glorious, NXT champion of all time. However, Roode follows up by saying he will be proving his ability tonight in a warm-up match for Takeover, and that match is right now.

.

Bobby Roode VS Mustafa Ali

In an incredible bout between the NXT champion and former 205 Live standout, Mustafa seems to be closing in on victory, as he has Roode in position for an 054. However, Roode is able to roll away as Ali takes the dive causing him to crash and burn. Roode immediately follows up with a Glorious DDT and subsequent pinfall, giving him a boost of momentum before Takeover and sending a message to whoever his opponent is that night.

.

NXT then shows another hype package, this time with the NXT tag team title match getting some shine. The Lucha Dragons' path on the main roster is shown, with all the ups, downs and the break-up. An overview of Kalisto's time on 205 is then displayed, with his general lack of success being the catalyst for his reformation with Sin Cara. The newly reformed Lucha Dragons' victory over Gargano and Lorcan to earn this match is shown, but the footage then cuts to the path of destruction of the Authors of Pain. Victories over The Mighty, The Revival, DIY...Everyone thus far has fallen to the unstoppable NXT tag team champions, and the question is raised if the Lucha Dragons will be the team to break that streak.

.

NXT then cuts to multiple interviews from the eight confirmed participants for the Cruiserweight title ladder match at Takeover: Chicago. It's specified by the announce team that if Hideo Itami loses tonight, he will be added to this match, courtesy of the rule that any Cruiserweight who won their first round match in the tournament would be eligible for this bout. However, he is not being interviewed, as he has been allowed as much time to prepare as possible. Instead, we see quick interviews from TJP, Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik, Johnny Gargano, Oney Lorcan, Roderick Strong and Adam Cole, who all make it clear how much winning championship gold would mean to them. 

.

Ember Moon VS Liv Morgan VS Ruby Riott VS Sarah Logan (NXT women's title number one contender's match)

In a bout to determine Asuka's Takeover opponent, we see the four remaining women of the NXT women's division (sans Shayna Baszler) compete for the honor to try to stop Asuka's unbeaten streak. Though the threat of the Queen of Spades looms over the bout, her challenge from last week still permeating the air, it doesn't distract any of these four women from the task at hand. However, it would be Liv Morgan who would fall to Ember Moon off an Eclipse, guaranteeing an NXT women's title rematch at the next Takeover between Asuka and Ember Moon.

After the match, Ember grabs a microphone and, now that she's been granted another chance, vows to be the one to end Asuka's streak. However, announces that she will happily face Shayna Baszler next week, as she would love to wipe the smug grin off her face before she becomes the final NXT women's champion.

.

Before tonight's main event, we see a backstage promo from Kassius Ohno, who cites his disappointment at falling to Hideo Itami last week, losing his chance at the NXT title and the opportunity to face his protégé, Aleister Black. However, he says he has full confidence in his pupil to beat Itami, and he looks forward to seeing Black kick Bobby Roode's head off at Takeover. Kassius concludes that maybe when Aleister wins the NXT title, he'll offer his teacher the first opportunity to compete for it.

.

Hideo Itami VS Aleister Black

In tonight's main event, the final round of the NXT title number one contender's tournament, and the bout to determine Bobby Roode's challenger at Takeover: Chicago, we see NXT's hottest new star, the seemingly unstoppable Aleister Black, take on NXT's hottest returning star, a similarly unstoppable Hideo Itami. The match is fast and hard-hitting, with both men prioritizing their stiff strikes and offense to pick up the victory. On this night, Hideo Itami would not be denied, putting away the impressive Aleister Black with a Go to Sleep.

After the match, Hideo celebrates his victory as the winner of the tournament and the man who Bobby Roode will face at Takeover: Chicago. The celebration is short-lived, though, as Bobby Roode appears and stares Itami down, with NXT closing on the sight of the main event at Takeover: Chicago.

RAW Episode 13

Nia Jax VS Alicia Fox (Women's Money in the Bank qualifier)

The final RAW before Money in the Bank begins with the final women's Money in the Bank qualifier on the RAW side, as Nia Jax makes her first in-ring appearance since losing her RAW women's tag team title match at Extreme Rules. In an incredibly quick match, Jax puts Alicia Fox away in quick fashion with a leg drop, earning a spot alongside Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mickie James, Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Naomi at Money in the Bank.

.

RAW then cuts backstage to individual interviews with the three men who have already qualified for the RAW side of the men's Money in the Bank ladder match, the three former members of The Shield, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and United States champion Dean Ambrose. Roman's is first, claiming that the briefcase is his to win and he will soon reclaim his rightful place on top of the WWE. Rollins is next, and he states that he will exorcise his demons and win the Money in the Bank briefcase with honor and integrity, earning his next world title rather than having it handed to him. Finally, Dean Ambrose gives his interview, stating that at Money in the Bank, he looks to once again win the briefcase and become world champion yet again, cementing that he isn't just the third best member of The Shield.

.

Shelton Benjamin VS ??? (Men's Money in the Bank qualifier)

After this interview concludes, we see the final men's qualifying match, with the other seven spots already filled. Shelton Benjamin enters first, flanked by American Alpha, who Shelton has been managing and guiding over the past month. Benjamin's opponent is next, and to the surprise and delight of the audience, it is the returning...

tenor.gif

Braun Strowman! Strowman has managed to recover from Roman Reigns' attack just in time for this qualifying match, with the original belief being that he would miss the Money in the Bank PPV entirely. Braun marches down to the ring with the crowd firmly behind him, falling in love with the Monster Among Men for his destructive efforts over the last year. Though Benjamin puts up as good of a fight as you could expect him to, Braun would not be stopped on this night, putting Benjamin away with a Running Powerslam.

After the match, a graphic is shown on-screen, showcasing the Men's Money in the Bank line-up, with Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Braun Strowman, AJ Styles, Baron Corbin, Pete Dunne and The Miz displayed.

After the match, Braun Strowman leaves, leaving Benjamin and his two protégés in the ring. Suddenly, the lights go out, and when they come back on, all three men are being attacked by SAnitY! Eric Young, Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe begin assaulting American Alpha and Benjamin, laying out the trio after a quick brawl. SAnitY stands tall to close out the segment.

.

Absolution VS Mickie James/Bayley/Sasha Banks

In a warm-up match similar to what The Bella Twins and Maryse had on SmackDown last week, Absolution takes on three of the four participants in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match, with Bayley and Sasha Banks having their feud with Paige rekindled. However, the makeshift tandem is unable to get the job done, falling to the RAW women's champion and the RAW women's tag team champions, who send one final message to their Money in the Bank opponents.

.

In the final segment before tonight's main event, we see The Good Brothers cut a promo on their opponents at Money in the Bank, Heath Slater and Rhyno. They say that despite Slater and Rhyno being the first ever SmackDown tag team champions, they simply aren't at the level of Gallows and Anderson, and they will merely be an example of The Good Brothers' dominance.

.

Finn Balor VS Sami Zayn

Finally, in tonight's main event, we see a bout between the World Heavyweight champion, Finn Balor, and a man desperately looking to get back to his winning ways, Sami Zayn. Unfortunately, after an incredible match, Zayn is still unable to turn his woes around, falling to a Coup de Grace from Balor.

After the match, Samoa Joe attacks both Balor and Zayn, looking to send a message to his Money in the Bank opponent. Joe initially sets his sights on Zayn, but surprisingly...

giphy.gif

Kevin Owens comes out to save Sami Zayn! Owens comes to the rescue of his long-time rival and former friend! Joe sees Owens and backs off, letting him take his former friend to the back, and then Joe turns his attention back to the World Heavyweight champion, locking him in a Coquina Clutch and forcing him to pass out as RAW ends.

Shinsuke Nakamura VS Curtis Axel

In a quick opening match, Shinsuke Nakamura plows through Axel in quick fashion, putting him down with a Kinshasa. Nakamura scores another impressive victory thus far on the main roster, and one has to wonder what's next for the former NXT champion.

.

SmackDown then cuts to individual interviews with The Miz, AJ Styles, Baron Corbin and Pete Dunne. The Miz is first, stating that although he is proud to be Intercontinental champion, he has always wanted to redeem his old WWE championship reign, feeling he can bring more prestige to the championship nowadays. Next is AJ Styles, who says that ever since he's come to WWE, he's succeeded at everything he's put his mind to. Now that he's had two months to prepare for Money in the Bank, nothing will stand in his way of adding yet another accolade to his already impressive resume. Next is Baron Corbin, who says that he's been unstoppable since debuting on the main roster, and he can't wait to take the WWE title away from the franchise of WWE and end his legacy run early. Finally, we see Pete Dunne, flanked by Tyler Bate and Jack Gallagher, who says that he's set himself up for the greatest rookie year in WWE history and will continue that with an early Money in the Bank victory.

.

SmackDown then cuts to Maryse and The Bella Twins, who say that although Absolution have been impressive, they're merely a flash in the pan and they don't have the longevity of the current SmackDown women's champions. Maryse and The Bella's then finish by saying they plan to show exactly why they're still the top stars of the women's division at Money in the Bank, and after they do, they will happily defend their titles against all comers yet again.

.

Billie Kay VS ??? (Women's Money in the Bank qualifier match)

In the final Money in the Bank qualifying match before both ladder matches for this Sunday are set, Billie Kay looks to earn a spot in the ladder match against an opponent that she has not been told of beforehand. Billie and Peyton then get on the microphone, stating that they've looked over the women's roster, and excluding champions, there's nobody left on the roster who hasn't had a chance to qualify. Billie and Peyton then say this must be because Shane McMahon sees Billie's obvious ability and looks to name her as the final entrant right now. The IIconic's then request for Shane to come out and make the announcement, but instead of Shane McMahon, they are met with the music of...

Kairi Sane! Kairi Sane is on SmackDown! After her losses to Asuka and Shayna Baszler in NXT, Kairi's time on the black and gold brand has come to an end, but she now has the chance to earn a SmackDown women's title match in her first match on SmackDown! The IIconic's are in total shock, but when they realize what has happened, Peyton leaves the ring, allowing the match between Kay and Sane to begin. Though Kay does put up a good fight, she is no match for the Pirate Princess on this night, falling to a beautiful...

In-Sane Elbow Drop! Kairi picks up the victory, and the women's Money in the Bank field is now set. As Kairi celebrates in front of the SmackDown crowd, a graphic flashes on-screen, showing the eight women who will compete in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match, those being Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mickie James, Nia Jax, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, Naomi and SmackDown's newest superstar, Kairi Sane.

After Kairi's victory, Charlotte then appears on the entrance ramp, stating that while Kairi was impressive, there will be nobody to stop her from becoming the first ever Ms. Money in the Bank. As Charlotte is talking, Naomi enters from the ringside area, attacking Kairi from behind. Charlotte joins in, but Becky Lynch's music blasts throughout the arena, and she enters with a steel chair. Charlotte and Naomi back off, and Becky helps Kairi up, allowing her the opportunity to celebrate her victory once more.

Finally, before tonight's main event, we see Shinsuke Nakamura leaving the arena. However, before he can exit, he is approached by Tye Dillinger. Dillinger tells Nakamura that everyone knows how impressive of a superstar he is, and Dillinger pleads for his help in dealing with British Strong Style, claiming it's only a matter of time before they come after him in their quest to eliminate new SmackDown superstars. Nakamura seems to consider Tye's words, but he walks off without giving a clear answer, confusing the Perfect 10.

John Cena/New Day VS Rusev/The Usos

Finally, in tonight's main event, we see a six-man tag between champions and challengers, as Cena teams with Big E and Xavier Woods against their Money in the Bank opponents, Rusev and The Usos. After a fantastic bout, it would be the challengers who score the win here, with Rusev forcing Woods to submit to the Accolade. SmackDown closes with Rusev and The Usos celebrating their victory, but will this be the same story at Money in the Bank?

NXT Episode 13

Johnny Gargano/Oney Lorcan VS TJP/Cedric Alexander VS Lince Dorado/Gran Metalik VS Adam Cole/Roderick Strong

NXT kicks off with a preview of the Cruiserweight title match at Takeover: Chicago. The four teams engage in a high-octane bout that dazzles the audience, but ultimately, it is the tandem of Johnny Gargano and Oney Lorcan who score the victory, with Gargano forcing Lince Dorado to submit to the Gargano Escape. Gargano and Lorcan celebrate their victory, their first win as a team since their formation.

.

NXT then cuts backstage to the three women who didn't qualify for the NXT women's title match at Takeover, Sarah Logan, Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott. Riott starts by saying that Shayna and Asuka are nearly unstoppable, and if the three women want a chance to hold NXT women's title gold, they need to work together. Liv and Sarah agree, and Ruby says that their union will be known as the Riott Squad.

Kassius Ohno VS Noam Dar

In a lightning quick encounter, Noam Dar is caught off-guard by Kassius Ohno, falling to a swift rolling elbow from the knockout artist.

After the match, Kassius Ohno chooses to watch at ringside for the next bout, which turns out to be...

Aleister Black VS Ariya Daivari

As Black enters, his eyes meet Ohno, who watches the match intently. Black seems confused as to why his former mentor is watching him. As the match begins, Black continues to eye Ohno, causing Daivari to try attacking Black from behind. However, Black senses it and levels Daivari with a Black Mass as he comes in, pinning him even faster than Ohno did to Dar.

After the match, Ohno grabs a microphone and enters the ring, telling Black that he's disappointed he and Black didn't meet in the tournament finals like he wanted. However, Takeover: Chicago does have a free spot on the card, and Ohno would like to rectify this by facing his former protégé in an exhibition match this Saturday. Black agrees, but only to prove that he has long since surpassed his mentor. Both men shake hands, and William Regal wastes no time, entering from the entrance ramp and making the match official for Takeover: Chicago.

.

As NXT returns from commercial, a graphic is then shown for the Takeover: Chicago match card, displaying Bobby Roode VS Hideo Itami, the Authors of Pain VS the Lucha Dragons, the Cruiserweight title ladder match, Asuka VS Ember Moon, and Kassius Ohno VS Aleister Black.

Ember Moon VS Shayna Baszler

In a warm-up match for Ember Moon, she looks to take down the seemingly unstoppable Shayna Baszler only three days before she attempts the same thing against Asuka. Of all of Shayna's opponents, Ember shows by far the most fight, catching the former MMA fighter off guard. However, before Ember can get the chance to beat Shayna, the Queen of Spades chooses to blast her with a steel chair, drawing the disqualification. Shayna lays into Ember with the chair a few times before Asuka runs out to make the save. She and Shayna brawl for a bit, but Asuka gets the upper hand, forcing Shayna to retreat. Asuka turns around to check on Ember, but as she does, she is met with...

Takeover: Chicago Match Card

Johnny Gargano VS Oney Lorcan VS TJP VS Cedric Alexander VS Lince Dorado VS Gran Metalik VS Adam Cole VS Roderick Strong (Cruiserweight title ladder match)

As 205 Live was merged with NXT in the aftermath of WrestleMania 33, a new Cruiserweight champion needed to be decided. This was determined by seeing which Cruiserweights would make it past their first round matches in the NXT title Number One Contender's tournament, and the eight men in this match plus eventual tournament winner, Hideo Itami, would be the ones to do so. Now, these eight men look to become the first Cruiserweight champion of the NXT era, and will compete in a hellacious ladder match to do so.

.

Aleister Black VS Kassius Ohno

Ever since Aleister Black debuted on NXT, Kassius Ohno has expressed his desire to face his former protégé in one on one competition. However, Ohno would be defeated by Hideo Itami in the tournament semi-finals, robbing him of the opportunity to face Black. As Black also fell to Itami, Ohno directly requested a match with Black at Takeover, to which he agreed, if only to prove that he has surpassed his former mentor. In this battle of teacher VS student, who will come out on top?

.

The Lucha Dragons VS The Authors of Pain (NXT tag team titles)

After the Authors of Pain ran most of the teams out of NXT, injuring Tommaso Ciampa in the process, the only team that proved to be a worthy threat for the Authors of Pain were the returning and newly reunited Lucha Dragons, with Kalisto and Sin Cara looking to become two time NXT tag team champions. However, as impressive as the luchadors have been, no team has been able to stop Akam and Rezar. Will that be any different at Takeover: Chicago, or will the book of pain have yet another chapter written?

.

Asuka VS Ember Moon (NXT women's championship)

After WrestleMania 33, it was announced that the NXT women's division would be ending at Takeover: Brooklyn III. As such, Asuka has been tasked with defending her women's championship against every active competitor on the NXT women's roster, giving all of them an opportunity to claim gold that they will never see again. Since this has happened, Asuka has beaten off half of the division already, but at Takeover: Chicago, she faces a familiar foe in Ember Moon, by far her greatest and toughest challenger so far. Will the reign of Asuka continue through yet another opponent, or does Ember write her name in the history books as NXT women's champion, ending Asuka's incredible undefeated streak?

.

Bobby Roode VS Hideo Itami (NXT championship)

When Hideo Itami returned to NXT on the NXT after WrestleMania 33, he set his sights directly on the Glorious One. Itami would manage to outlast 31 other men, the entire NXT roster, in an NXT title Number One Contender's match, just for the opportunity to face Bobby Roode. Roode has expressed his disrespect and disdain for Itami in the past, but will the Glorious One back up his words yet again, or does his reign finally fall to the Japanese Sensation?
