Kickoff Present

The Kickoff Present will start at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET. You’ll be able to watch it for your self beneath.

There have been no matches on the Kickoff Present, as soon as once more. Contemplating this was one among WWE’s bigger and more-popular PLEs of the yr, we thought there would have been at the very least one.

Bianca Belair (c) vs. Becky Lynch

(Uncooked Ladies’s Championship)

Belair wins by pin.

Mat: Effectively, the Kickoff Present was a waste of time, but again–except when Greg from Kinda Humorous was on. He was at the very least enjoyable. Fortunately, we’re kicking off the present with the Uncooked Ladies’s Championship. To cite myself from Twitter, “Bianca and Becky have unbelievable in-ring chemistry. #Summerslam.” This is not their greatest match by any means, however it’s nonetheless nice as a result of they work so nicely collectively.

To additionally quote myself on Twitter, WWE must calm the hell down with the digicam cuts and the frantic zooms. It is distracting and annoying. They’re on this unbelievable outside stadium with this unbelievable pure lighting (for now) and all I can give attention to is all these digicam cuts.

Anyway, I actually loved this match, and the pop from the group when Bianca gave Becky the KOD on the finish of the match was wonderful. You’re keen on seeing the group get behind a wrestler like that–especially a babyface in 2022. And we received this actually nice second on the finish the place the 2 shook arms, and it was simply such a good way to begin off the present.

After which Bayley got here again… Then Dakota Kai… Then Io Sharai. This was an epic near the opening match.

Ranking: 8.5/10

Chris: Simply to star off heading in the right direction, I really like that Becky has advanced past bizarre sun shades into merely bizarre headpieces. This crowd is jacked up and able to rock, which is superior. So glad that is the match kicking issues off and getting a contemporary and enthusiastic crowd. I really like these two and can gladly watch them wrestle as many instances as WWE deems it vital. Nonetheless, the camerawork on the primary stretch of this match was erratic and took away from the wonderful work they have been placing out. The digicam cuts have been coming at such a frenetic tempo that it was exhausting to comply with at instances.

That KOD to the ringside space was a factor of magnificence, although. As was Becky pulling Bianca off the highest rope and right into a Manhandle Slam. Man, the chemistry between these two is other-worldly. The ending, with Bianca turning the tremendous Manhandle Slam right into a top-rope Spanish fly adopted by yet one more KOD was completed to perfection. Her leaping into the pin appeared so good and confirmed how necessary it was to get it completed as quickly as she may. What an superior option to kick off the present. In contrast to Mat, the digicam stuff stopped bothering me across the midway level of the match, so I used to be capable of simply embrace how superior every thing was.

I perceive the handshake and hug on the finish however I actually hope Becky comes out on Uncooked as a fiery heel as soon as once more. She’s too good at being too unhealthy. BAYLEY WHAT IS HAPPENING. I am so sorry I have been dreaming of this second. And Dakota Kai? What the heck? Io Sharai? That is superior. And I really like the concept of those three as a heel secure. I am unhappy Becky is popping face once more, although.

Ranking: 8.5/10

Logan Paul vs. The Miz

Logan Paul wins by pin.

Mat: My web went down the primary 8 minutes of the match, so I do probably not really feel snug ranking this one. Nonetheless, I would like to offer credit score the place it’s due. Logan Paul’s standing moonsault was very spectacular. He wasn’t 100% nailing each transfer, however there have been some very memorable moments. This was enjoyable, however it may have completed with out so many advertisements for the vitality drink that sponsors Paul.

Ranking: /10

Chris: If we will get by way of this match with out a reference to The Miz’s testicles on commentary, I might be a contented boy. Additionally, I am glad Tommaso Ciampa is getting screentime, however at what a value? Additionally I really like that The Miz is carrying a photograph of himself beating up Logan paul round his beck. Take that, Logan Paul’s Pokemon card. This match wasn’t so unhealthy. However there have been a number of moments for Paul that felt very attempt exhausting, if that is smart. His moonsault to the ground from the apron simply appeared pointless (and he missed most of Miz, in addition). His Blockbuster was on level, although. As was Miz’s double knee facebuster to Paul from the highest rope. And Paul’s frogsplash by way of the announce desk.

I feel my massive takeaway from this match, although, is what’s there for Paul to do in WWE past feuding with The Miz? He is manner too inexperienced to be any type of title contender and he is completely not going to go on the street with WWE. It is a goofy rivalry they’ve and that is high-quality, however it’s not sustainable long-term. Particularly now that Paul has gotten the win over Miz and proceeded to drink some type of vitality drink he is absolutely sponsored by. Anyway, it was an excellent match but when Logan Paul has signed a long run contract with WWE, I’ve to marvel what for. Additionally, I am dying for them to search out one thing higher for Ciampa to do. Please.

Ranking: 7/10

Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Concept

(United States Championship)

Bobbly Lashley wins by submission.

Mat: Greater than something, I needed Concept to get so annoyed after dropping to Lashley that he cashed in his MITB contract in opposition to Bobby Lashley for a rematch–and then lose once more. How hilarious would that be? Anyway, that is not what occurred. We received a middle-of-the-road match that ended the Lashley/Concept saga. Not a lot to say about it.

Ranking: 5/10

Chris: Folks HATE Concept. So his push has labored like a allure. The difficulty I’ve with this match is Concept by no means looks like a menace, which is unhealthy if WWE is planning to make him a world champion. He was totally destroyed by Lashley. Why would we would like him to win the title later tonight? When Seth Rollins cashed in at Wrestlemania years again, he additionally misplaced his match that night time–a highly-competitive effort in opposition to Randy Orton that included that unbelievable RKO second. That is how you’ve somebody lose earlier than they money in. I’ve to hope Concept is not going to truly money in tonight as a result of he would not look worthy of the belt in any respect. The person makes the title, the title would not make the person. And proper now, Concept can not make the Undisputed WWE Common Championship.

Ranking: 4.5/10

The Mysterios vs. Finn Bálor and Damian Priest The Judgment Day (No Disqualification Match)

Rey Mysterio pins Finn Balor.

Mat: Eddie Guerrero is the most-mocked wrestler within the WWE. Any time anybody wrestles Rey Mysterio, they mock Eddie. It is outdated hat–unless you need to name Dominik “Dominik Guerrero,” that is nonetheless truthful sport.

This is some meals for thought. It is a No DQ match, proper? Then why is that this additionally being handled as a standard tag and never a twister tag? If you cannot be disqualified for something, then why play by the principles and maintain on to the tag rope and politely wait to be tagged in? WRESTLING!

Then Brood Edge confirmed up, however with quick hair and a cool jacket. Okay, it wasn’t Brood Edge, however he did come up by way of a flaming staircase. I don’t completely get the purpose of the weeks of vignettes for Edge for him to point out up right here. There is no actual impact–especially when earlier within the night, we might be informed he is coming again tonight.

After the spears, Rey Mysterio received the pin. This was one other middle-of-the-road match that includes lots of people I like.

Ranking: 4/10

Chris: Above all, I am supremely disillusioned in how WWE has wasted The Judgment Day since Edge was faraway from the group. They have been feuding with the Mysterios and have been repeatedly made to appear like chumps. They deserve higher than this. And I nonetheless do not perceive why they’re persevering with to make use of Edge’s evil WWE music. However he is again tonight, so possibly he may also help clarify.

It is moments like this match which you can neglect Finn Balor was the primary Common Champion ever and has been misused nonstop ever since–save for his temporary return to NXT. That is the difficulty with this match and the presentation of The Judgment Day as a complete. Finn is the founding chief of Bullet Membership, a former champion, and one of many absolute most proficient performers on the planet. He needs to be greater than “the man carrying leather-based pants in a vaguely goth secure with no route.” He should not be dropping clear to Rey Mysterio on Uncooked, per week earlier than preventing him once more at SummerSlam. Below the best circumstances, a collection of matches between Balor and Rey Mysterio could be unbelievable. This ain’t it, although.

I’ll say, I did get pleasure from Rhea Ripley beating up Dominik, although. And I am wildly confused about no matter’s happening with Edge, who made his return right here. Is he…an excellent man demon now? Is that this what the Brood 2022 seems like? And I’ve to be sincere, having Finn take the loss right here is only a horrible resolution. Finally, we’ll get Edge vs. Finn and I am certain will probably be superior. However this type of sucks.

Pat McAfee vs. Glad Corbin

McAfee pins Corbin.

Chris and I are the audience for this match. We love McAfee. We love Glad/Unhappy/Torpid Corbin. It is a feel-good match with a beloved face and a hated heel. McAfee appeared just a little sloppy, however he pulled off some fairly spectacular strikes. The end with the basically Panama Dawn did not look nice, so the end as a complete did not look nice, however total, I actually loved this one–outside of McAfee’s horrible entrance music.

Ranking: 7.5/10

Chris: I give a 0/10 to McAfee’s new music. Convey again the outdated track. And why is there a dude within the entrance row carrying Joker make-up? Did he simply watch The Darkish Knight this week and thinks it makes him cool? My brother, it doesn’t.

I’ve to be sincere, although, this match was a blast. I liked them buying and selling offense, liked Corbin on commentary and shoving Michael Cole. McAfee continues to point out he has chops within the ring and Glad Corbin continues to by no means get outdated. This was by no means going to be a technical marvel of a match. It was going to be a battle and that is precisely what we received. Nonetheless, it undoubtedly appeared like McAfee was going to kill himself falling off the highest rope earlier than he managed to land that swantom bomb. Nonetheless, these two placed on a brief however entertaining match, full with McAfee’s bizarre rollup ending move–which I do not hate.

Ranking: 8/10

The Usos vs. The Avenue Earnings

(Undisputed WWE Tag Group Championship with Particular Visitor Referee Jeff Jarrett)

The Usos win by pin.

Mat: Can anybody inform me who’s going to be my child tonight? I really feel like somebody has to reference that track when speaking about Jeff Jarrett or Street Doggggg will get upset.

I like kicks that occur to be higher than normal–super even–so this match may be very a lot up my alley. Let’s be honest–as I needs to be on this evaluation. The Avenue Earnings and The Usos are two of the very best tag groups working within the enterprise proper now, in any promotion. As soon as once more, these two placed on a clinic right here. This was a curler coaster of emotion watching these groups attempt to get one over one another. There is no such thing as a crew higher than holding you on the sting of you seat than The Usos. It occurred so much right here.

The match was improbable, however the end was shocking, to say the least. The difficulty is that it actually feels prefer it’s the Avenue Earnings’ time to be champs as soon as once more. There’s nothing improper with The Usos retaining–they’re nice champs–but it felt prefer it was time to move the torch.

Ranking: 8.5/10

Chris: We’re all with our child tonight, you guys. Additionally, with an entrance like this, the Usos should be successful, proper? Additionally, I am normally very judgmental of the shortage of a giant elaborate stage at reveals like this. Nonetheless, being utterly sincere, I really like the way it seems right here. Everybody strolling down that aisle, surrounded by followers, seems as massive time because it will get. It dawned on me as I watched the Usos make that stroll, it has old fashioned Wrestlemania vibes and it really works rather well.

Matches between these two groups by no means get outdated. And whereas there’s been a whole lot of speak about how nice Montez Ford is (and he’s), I really like that Angelo Dawkins received to point out off a bit tonight as a result of he is additionally extremely proficient. Additionally, it would not make sense however I like Jeff Jarrett because the referee. He is good on the job, it provides one thing particular to the match that we do not see usually, and makes the bout really feel like an excellent greater deal.

I am genuinely shocked the Usos retained the titles. This was a superb time for them to drop the belts and chase for just a little while–and create extra stakes main into the primary occasion.

Nonetheless, this was a heck of a match and although it’ll most likely be some time, I might like to see these two groups go at it once more.

Ranking: 8/10

Liv Morgan (c) vs. Ronda Rousey

(Smackdown Ladies’s Championship)

Liv wins by pin.

Mat: Early on, this feels very “squashy,” and I am not a fan, most likely as a result of I like Liv Morgan and need her to be a champion that retains. It is a whole lot of Liv virtually dying however discovering a option to wiggle out of the circumstance she’s in. She has willpower and sturdiness and nice in-ring data, however her offense was weak.

Nonetheless, I actually liked the end right here. It is one thing I’ve needed to see for a very long time. Liv is in a submission transfer, however Ronda’s shoulders have been on the mat–and Liv received the pin–however, Liv tapped throughout this. Then after dropping, Ronda beat up Liv then the ref. Fortunately, Jamie Noble got here to avoid wasting the ref. We’ll get a rematch, and that is high-quality. I like that this match supplied up one thing distinctive.

7.5/10

Chris: I really like Liv Morgan, and I would like Liv Morgan to in some way get a win right here. She’s simply so likable and has a totally totally different vitality as champion. And the group loves her. I informed Mat she jogs my memory of the world’s little sister. We do not need unhealthy issues to occur to her. We simply need to champion her to the moon.

I really like that they’ve made Liv look sturdy right here. She’s gotten out of Ronda’s strikes greater than as soon as and even utilized her personal. I really like that Morgan gained and it wasn’t clear, however greater than that I really like heel Ronda Rousey. Her character has been flailing for too lengthy. It is about time she will get some edge again. This was a brief one, however an entertaining bout. And hey, extra Liv as champion. What’s to not love? I am guessing we’ll get one other match between them–maybe a gimmick match of some sort–at Conflict on the Citadel.

Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar

(Final Man Standing Match for the Undisputed Championships)

Roman Reigns is the final man standing.

Mat: Brock Lesnar driving a tractor to the ring is my favourite Brock Lesnar second. Sure, I stated Brock Lesnar, not Bork Lazer. I respect a wrestler who drives a big car to the ring, like Kurt Angle and Steve Austin earlier than him.

Pay attention, the tractor side of all of that is very foolish. He loaded Roman Reigns into it then dumped him into the ring, and none of it makes any sense. Then the viewers began chanting “That is superior.” Certain? I assume? I imply, it is all very dumb however in the easiest way doable.

Lesnar then used the tractor to raise up the ring, and Roman Reigns rolled out. I laughed so extremely exhausting for manner too lengthy. This was the second I used to be ready for. That is all so foolish. I find it irresistible a lot.

The match broke down into much more insanity with Concept making an attempt to cashing in his MITB contract, however then Lesnar received to him, however then The Usos attacked him. That is whole chaos. The one manner Reigns may get his win was to pile a bunch of trash onto Lesnar. It labored as a end. This was by far probably the most wild Final Man Standing match I’ve ever seen, and I liked it.

9.5/10

Chris: I do not even know what’s occurring anymore. Why did Brock drive a tractor to the ring? Additionally, it is like IN the ring. That appears unhealthy? I absolutely anticipate this to finish just like the Halftime Warmth match between The Rock and Mankind. Somebody’s getting pinned to the bottom below that tractor for a ten rely.

It’s important to find it irresistible when a bunch of tables get utterly obliterated early on. These two dudes hit exhausting and actually appear invested in making one another really feel it within the morning. I’ve to say, Brock dumping Roman into the ring by way of the tractor was an superior idea, however finally, it appeared like Roman fell round six inches, so it was extra humorous than anything.

Nonetheless, Brock was dominant on this match. After which he attacked the ring along with his tractor, and it was the weirdest factor I’ve ever seen. It should suck for these whose views are actually obstructed by the underside of the ring. Then the Usos attacked, Heyman ate an F-5 by way of a desk, it was absolute anarchy and so many individuals simply did not get to see it as a result of Brock lifted the ring off the bottom. Cue Austin Concept. After all, that did not work out both. And Roman and Brock continued to beat the snot out of one another with every thing in sight. And at last, the Bloodline merely buried Brock below no matter they may get their arms on.

This match was chaos in its most pure kind and wildly entertaining. And my God did they rip aside virtually every thing. That is the type of match the place they are going to embrace highlights in every kind of video packages for years to come–and Roman managed to hold on to his beloved titles. Not a nasty option to shut out SummerSlam.
