He tags in Saraya and the two women go at it. Britt with a boot to Saraya. Still, Saraya regains control and tries to superplex Britt off of the top rope.

Cole struggles to make it to the ropes! He is trapped for what feels like minutes until Britt makes the save. She puts on her special glove and secures the lockjaw on Jericho. He releases Cole and she applies it with even more force! Saraya breaks it up to save her partner.

Cole tunes up the band but his sweet chin music is stopped with a codebreaker from Jericho. A close two count follows! The two men trade forearms and chops before nailing one another with a double clothesline. They make it to their corners and tag in the women. They exchange a flurry of elbow strikes.

He compains that they get no opportunities, so they’re going to take it! Dralisitico and Preston Vance attack Hook until Jungle Boy comes down with a chair and takes everyone out.

Liona follows up with a senton splash on the apron to Darby, followed by a uranage for a close two count. Kaun is tagged back in, but Darby’s attempt to rally is ineffective. Finally, he gets some offense and shoves Gates of Agony into one another. OC gets the tag!

Bullet Club Gold is interviewed

Tony Schiavone stands in the middle of the ring, introducing Jay White and Juice Robinson of Bullet Club Gold. Tony asks them about Ricky Starks and why they attacked him at Double or Nothing. White says that we can all agree that DoN was an amazing night. And after Ricky Starsk eliminated Bullet Club Gold from the battle royale, he’s probably on top of the world.

But White emphasizes that Starks still lost that battle royale, just like he lost to him before. Juice wants to know why FTR interfered and helped Mr. Ricky Starks. Juice says they can’t be friends because Starks doesn’t have any friends! White says that since FTR are a couple of Southern boys, they probably are pretty dumb. But how are they dumb enough to get involved in Bullet Club Gold’s business.

Here comes FTR! White puts Tony Schiavone in front of them. Juice says they’re keeping it civil tonight, and FTR must be there to apologize and say sorry. White agrees, and brings up the idea of FTR joining Bullet Club Gold! White says all they have to do is ask, but make sure they do it politely. Out of nowhere, Juice punches Dax in the face! Cash attacks him but gets taken out by both men. Blade Runner from Jay and a Pulp Friction from Juice! Ricky Starks runs down to the ring and chases Bullet Club off.

Dark Uno and The Dark Order show up, acting jealous that Hangman has gone back to The Elite. Hangman goes off to talk to them, but first, he says Kenny Omega is out of the country but he’s not in Canada right now.

The week ahead: What's in store for Friday's WWE SmackDown

Before we dive fully into a new episode of AEW Dynamite, let’s check out what is coming up later this week on a new episode of SmackDown. Roman Reigns is the prettiest belle at the ball this Friday when he is honored for 1,000 days as Universal Champion! However, the accomplishment comes at a time when The Bloodline is falling apart. What will happen between The Usos and The Tribal Chief after Jimmy Uso attacked Reigns this past Saturday at Night of Champions?

You can see the card for the 6/2 WWE SmackDown below:

  • Money in the Bank Qualifying Match: Montez Ford vs. LA Knight
  • Roman Reigns celebrates 1,000 Days as Universal Champion


The Undertaker considering a return to the ring?

The Undertaker is one of pro wrestling’s most recognizable superstars, perhaps best known for achieving an unprecedented 21 – 1 win/loss streak at WrestleMania. And though Undertaker retired back in 2020 with his “Last Ride” match, “The Phenom” can’t deny that he feels some type of why when he attends live WWE shows.

“I’ve got to the point now where if I’m home, I’m fine. It’s when I do show up at a WWE event I get that ‘I should be getting ready’ feeling”

That’s especially relevant for WrestleMania. The event where Undertaker stamped a large portion of his legacy was one of the most difficult for him to attend this year because it made him want to jump in the ring, himself.

“At WrestleMania 39, I was there and I had my family and friends up in a suite watching the show and I kind of found myself rocking in my chair like, ‘oh, my gosh, I should be down there’. So in those instances, it’s there. It’s still in my heart and it’s in my brain.” (h/t The Independent).”

Billy Gunn

The Acclaimed are still focused on capturing AEW Gold

The Acclaimed’s Max Caster, Anthony Bowens, and Daddy Ass were surprise challengers for The House of Black’s AEW Trios Championships this past Sunday at Double or Nothing in a House Rules match. Though they were unsuccessful on the occasion, The Acclaimed is overcoming that loss and wants to realign their focus on capturing AEW gold in some way going forward.

The Acclaimed and Daddy Ass, we still have one goal in mind and that is to get gold back around our waists. We were screwed out of gold and Daddy Ass deserves to wear gold around his waist one more time and we will not stop until we get that back. And that starts this week on Dynamite because we are going to re-group, we’re going to learn from our mistakes, and we’re going to continue showing everybody why everyone loves The Acclaimed.”

Ted DiBiase

Ted DiBiase reveals he's suffering from brain trauma

It’s difficult to anticipate what kind of long-term effects pro wrestlers will take on after dedicating portions of their lives competing inside the squared circle. For some, the consequences manifest mentally, which is what’s happening with WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase.

“The Million Dollar Man” opened up in a recent interview about how he’s dealing with “severe brain trauma” as he grows older.

“I don’t have Alzheimer’s and I don’t have dementia. But they said, ‘Ted, you have something — we just simply call it severe brain trauma.’ … I only wrestled maybe almost 20 years, so I’m not surprised I might have a little brain trauma. What it affects is my memory, and they say it’d be easier for [me] to remember something [I] did 40 or 50 years ago, but the short-term memory — some of the stuff like now — it’s bits and pieces.”

Carmella and Corey Graves announce the sex of their baby

Carmella is due in November. She first revealed the news on May 1, and since then, other stars in the world of pro wrestling have announced pregnancies, like Alexa Bliss and Tay Melo.

You can see a video of the interview below:

Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins gives his take on why WWE needed a new World Title

This past Saturday at WWE Night of Champions, Seth Rollins successfully defeated AJ Styles in the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament finals to be the first man to hold the new rendition of the belt. Now that he wears it with pride, Rollins is making regular media appearances like the one he made on The Bump earlier today.

During the interview, Rollins described why he believes a new World Title needed to be introduced into the fold of WWE.

There was a need for a title on Monday nights. There was a need for a new title because everybody is so good: myself, AJ Styles — all the SmackDown guys, really — Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Gunther. You look at Raw: you got Cody Rhodes, you’ve got Kevin [Owens], you’ve got Sami [Zayn]. I mean, there’s just tons of guys, tons of competition at the top and we needed a prize to fight for since our Universal Champion, you know, he wants to keep his part-time schedule.


Wrestling veteran thinks Tammy "Sunny" Sytch is being dealt bad karma

Tammy “Sunny” Sytch was a fan-favorite during WWE’s Attitude Era, but poor decisions later in life have tarnished the legacy she built for herself. She’s been arrested several times, with the most recent being for the death of a 75-year-old man due to crashing into his car. Officers believed that Sytch was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

Barry Horowitz, a wrestling veteran who knew Sytch from her relationship with his good friend, Chris Candido, was recently interviewed about Sunny. To him, she was simply in the right place at the right time when she was signed to WWE. And because of her poor choices, he thinks she’s getting what she deserves by being incarcerated.

“She was just getting going, 23 years old. There’s girls right there now that are her age in the mall in Florida walking around that smoke her alive. The biggest thing was right time, right place. All you had to do was keep that mouth shut, drama free, you should be retired like Trish Stratus, Stacy Keibler, living off your royalties. Instead, you’re in a jail cell looking bad. Poor Chris had to deal with that, so maybe karma is biting her in the ass. What goes around comes around, especially in the wrestling business.”
