Another quickie this week, with the run up the Clash of Champions taking place, Raw was simply setting up for thise matches and not making any new storyline steps. Time to cover the same old stories and hope that we’ve got enough to fill the time this weekend!
A quick recap of the last two episodes of the Cruiserweight Classic ahead of the debuting Cruiserweight Division on Monday Night Raw.
Welcome back to the Cruiserweight Classic! It’s Steph here again today, with a play-by-play I’m not entirely sure about, but we’ll give it a go anyway. This week, we’re in Winter Park, Florida, and we have our usual announce team of Mauro Ranallo and Daniel Bryan.
Hey, wrestling fans, and welcome back to another week of the Cruiserweight Classic. This week is the start of round two, and there are sixteen competitors left, so without any more fanfare, I say we get straight on to what promises to be some amazing wrestling.
With the draft coming up next week, and Battleground hitting our screens a week from today, things are heating up. Let’s get to it!
Battle Royal for Number One Contendership for the Intercontinental Title – Darren Young wins after Apollo Crews and Baron Corbin eliminate each other.
Sheamus vs. Zack Ryder – Sheamus wins by pinfall.
Breezango vs. Lucha Dragons – Breezango wins, with Tyler Breeze pinning Kalisto.
Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro – Kevin Owens wins by pinfall.
Heath Slater vs. Titus O’Neil – Titus O’Neil picks up a victory by pinfall.
The New Day visited the Wyatt Family compound, and almost looked like getting the upper hand when suddenly hundreds of fireflies and sheep masks showed up to put the fear of Wyatt into them.
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. Enzo & Big Cass – Enzo and Big Cass win by disqualification after AJ Styles interferes, but don’t come out happy.
Sasha Banks vs. Dana Brooke – Dana taps out to the Bank Statement.
Vince McMahon announced that Shane McMahon will be Commissioner of SmackDown, while Stephanie McMahon will be Commissioner of RAW.
Finally, the opening of the Cruiserweight Classic on the WWE Network – something we’ve been waiting to come back for a long time, and this show looks like the start of a hell of a summer series. We start the show with a video package stating what a cruiserweight is and showing highlights of the the past of the cruiserweight division, before discussing the people competing in the classic. All this has a voiceover by Triple H .
