Cody Rhodes and Seth "Freakin" Rollins, two of the most electrifying performers in the industry, have set their sights on a confrontation that will send shockwaves through the world of professional wrestling. They've made it clear they are on a collision course with none other than The Rock, the Brahma Bull himself, and Roman Reigns, the Head of the Table and the standard-bearer of The Bloodline.


The stakes couldn't be higher as both teams are poised to lay it all on the line at the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania. With the WWE Universe buzzing, Rhodes and Rollins are slated to appear on SmackDown, the blue brand that has been the backdrop for some of the most historic moments in wrestling. They're not just there to talk; they're there to challenge the very foundation of The Bloodline's dominance.


As the WWE Universe awaits this clash of titans, questions abound. Will Rhodes and Rollins manage to disrupt the seemingly unstoppable force of The Bloodline?

Gunther Defeats “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio 

In a heated showdown that had the WWE Universe on the edge of their seats, Gunther, the celebrated and longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history, delivered a resounding victory over "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio. The week prior, the WWE witnessed a war of words escalate during a fierce Judgment Day confrontation between Dominik Mysterio and the formidable faction known as Imperium. Mysterio, who has embraced a more aggressive and unorthodox style, earned the moniker "Dirty Dom" for his rough tactics and brash demeanour.


However, it was on this electrifying night that Gunther, known for his unmatched strength and iron will, decisively silenced Mysterio's bravado. In the culmination of a match filled with high-intensity action and technical prowess, Gunther forced "Dirty" Dom to submit, asserting his dominance and solidifying his legacy as a champion of unparalleled calibre. The outcome wasn't just a personal victory for Gunther but a stark reminder to all in the WWE locker room that while trash talk may fuel the flames of rivalry, in the ring, it's skill, strength, and strategy that secure victory. As "Dirty" Dom tapped out, it was clear that Gunther's reign as Intercontinental Champion is a force that remains as formidable as ever.


Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark Defeats Katana Chance & Kayden Carter

In the dynamic and often unpredictable realm of WWE's Women's division, alliances and rivalries write their own stories of triumph and heartbreak. The formidable duo of Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark once again demonstrated their grit and synergy, etching another victory in their journey towards the coveted WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. On this thrilling night, their synergy was on full display as they faced the formidable team of Katana Chance and Kayden Carter.


The match was a showcase of technical skill and ringside savvy, with "The Submission Magician" Shayna Baszler living up to her moniker. With precision and relentless focus, Baszler ensnared Kayden Carter in the suffocating grasp of the Kirifuda Clutch, a submission hold that has spelled the end for many of her opponents. As this drama unfolded outside the ropes, the diversion proved to be a pivotal moment, as it provided Zoey Stark the opening she needed. Inside the ring, Stark capitalised on the distraction with an agility and alertness that are fast becoming her trademark. She executed a swift and decisive pin on Katana Chance, securing yet another victory and advancing her team one step closer to a title opportunity.


The echoes of the match's conclusion had barely faded when Damage CTRL seized the moment to make a bold proclamation. They were adamant in their prediction that The Kabuki Warriors would successfully defend their titles on NXT's grand stage. It was a statement of intent, filled with the confidence of champions, and a forewarning that they would be waiting to face Baszler and Stark once more. This pronouncement added another layer to the unfolding drama, setting the stage for future high-stakes encounters and leaving the WWE Universe eagerly anticipating the next chapter in this enthralling saga.


Nia Jax Defeats. Becky Lynch by Disqualification

The WWE ring once again played host to a gritty confrontation between two of its most tenacious Superstars, Becky Lynch and Nia Jax. With the echoes of their previous battle still resonating with the WWE Universe, the two warriors locked horns in what promised to be another epic rematch. The bout lived up to expectations, featuring a back-and-forth display of strength, skill, and sheer will to win.


Just as the intensity reached its peak, the unexpected occurred. Liv Morgan, known for her fierce spirit and unpredictable antics, launched a stealthy offensive on Nia Jax. This sudden interference blindsided "The Irresistible Force," compelling the match official to make the quick and decisive call to end the match on grounds of disqualification. The intrusion may have granted Nia Jax the victory, but it was clear that the war was far from over.


In the chaotic aftermath, an infuriated Nia Jax was not content with just her hand being raised; she sought retribution. With a fiery gaze set on both her original opponent and the interloper, Jax unleashed her fury. Liv Morgan and Becky Lynch found themselves on the receiving end of a brutal onslaught, a stark reminder that any action against Jax comes with a heavy price. The crowd watched, a mix of shock and awe, as "The Irresistible Force" stood dominant in the ring, her message clear: no one interferes with her path without facing the consequences. The fallout from this clash set the stage for more tumultuous encounters down the line, as alliances and rivalries continue to shape the landscape of the Women's division.


Andrade Defeats Apollo Crews in his Raw Return

The return of Andrade to Monday Night Raw was marked by a highly anticipated and climactic match that had the WWE Universe abuzz with excitement. The air was thick with the promise of an unforgettable bout as Andrade, a Superstar with a rich legacy and a point to prove, squared off against the formidable Apollo Crews, a former Intercontinental Champion known for his explosive athleticism and in-ring prowess.


As the bell rang, it became evident that Andrade's time away from the Raw ring had done nothing to dull his skills or his hunger for victory. The match was a riveting display of Andrade's technical mastery and Crews' dynamic offence, with each competitor vying to assert their dominance. The back-and-forth action was a testament to their respective reputations, with neither willing to back down an inch.


In the crescendo of this gripping encounter, Andrade executed La Sombra, a move that is as much art as it is a statement of his lucha libre heritage. This decisive manoeuvre, delivered with precision and force, was enough to secure him the pinfall victory over Apollo Crews. The triumph was not just a win in the record books but a significant statement that Andrade's return to Raw was not a fleeting visit; it was a homecoming with intent.


As Andrade had his hand raised in victory, the WWE Universe could only wonder what's next for this rejuvenated warrior. Will this victory be a stepping stone to a future title opportunity? Or will Apollo Crews, stung by defeat, come back with a vengeance? One thing is for certain, the landscape of Monday Night Raw just became even more competitive with Andrade's return to action.


The Judgment Day Defeats Imperium

In a spectacular showdown that had the WWE Universe on their feet, The Judgment Day faced off against the imposing Imperium in a battle that promised to shake the foundations of the ring. The high stakes and intensity were palpable as these two factions, each with their own philosophy and style, clashed in a contest that would prove their mettle.


The pivotal moment came when Finn Bálor, known for his electrifying agility and daredevil antics, soared over the top rope with the grace of a predator pouncing on its prey. His target, Ludwig Kaiser, found himself overwhelmed at ringside by Bálor's relentless assault, a manoeuvre that encapsulated the very essence of The Judgment Day's unyielding approach to combat.


With Kaiser taken out of the equation, the spotlight turned to Damian Priest, whose presence alone commands attention. It was his time to shine, and he seized it with both hands. Priest, with his unique blend of size, speed, and savagery, delivered the South of Heaven, a move as ominous as its name suggests, to Giovanni Vinci. The execution was flawless, and the impact was conclusive, grounding Vinci long enough for Priest to secure the pinfall victory.


The triumph of The Judgment Day over Imperium was not just another win in their storied rivalry; it was a declaration of dominance, a statement made with the unmistakable language of force and will. As Priest's theme echoed through the arena, it heralded the rising power of The Judgment Day, and with each victory, their legend within the WWE continues to grow.


Sami Zayn Defeats Ivar

In a match that showcased agility versus brute strength, Sami Zayn stood across the ring from Ivar, a Superstar whose sheer size and power have earned him the moniker of a monstrous force within the squared circle. The stakes were as high as the top rope from which Ivar is known to launch his devastating moonsault, a move that has flattened many a competitor.


On this occasion, however, it was the cunning and quick-witted Sami Zayn who would emerge victorious. In a display of his ring intelligence and evasive agility, Zayn managed to sidestep the aerial onslaught of Ivar's moonsault, a feat that in itself drew gasps from the WWE Universe. With Ivar reeling from his missed opportunity, Zayn capitalised with a perfectly timed Helluva Kick, striking with the precision and impact of a seasoned gladiator. The blow was enough to secure Zayn the pinfall, marking a significant victory over one of the most daunting adversaries in the ring.


But the celebration was short-lived. The atmosphere took a dramatic turn when "Big" Bronson Reed entered the scene, his eyes set on Sami Zayn with intentions far from congratulatory. In a stunning display of dominance and a clear message to his future opponent, Reed unleashed the Tsunami, a move that embodies the very essence of his power. The impact left Zayn reeling on the canvas, a stark reminder that the road to WrestleMania is fraught with giants and that every victory comes at a cost.


With the gauntlet match on the horizon, and the chance to challenge Gunther for the highest of accolades at WrestleMania at stake, this moment of triumph and subsequent defeat for Sami Zayn was a microcosm of the tumultuous journey that awaits any Superstar daring to dream of championship glory.


Drew McIntyre Defeats Jey Uso

In the high-octane world of WWE, the main event is where legends are made, and it was no different on this explosive night as Drew McIntyre faced off against Jey Uso in a clash of titans. The tension was palpable, the crowd electric, as these two seasoned Superstars engaged in a battle that would see strategy, strength, and sheer will tested to their limits.


Amidst the roar of the WWE Universe, an unexpected twist unfolded when Cody Rhodes stormed the ring, his sights set on Solo Sikoa. The ensuing brawl between Rhodes and Sikoa was a chaotic spectacle, adding a layer of unpredictability to an already tumultuous match. The distraction proved to be a pivotal moment for Drew McIntyre, who, ever the opportunist, seized the moment to deliver a devastating Claymore. The impact resonated through the arena, and it was enough for McIntyre to pin Jey Uso, claiming a hard-fought victory in this main event showdown.


But the drama was far from over. In a moment of heightened tension, Jimmy Uso, with intentions as clear as they were destructive, grabbed a steel chair, looking to inflict damage on his own flesh and blood. The atmosphere turned volatile, with the audience on tenterhooks, unsure of how far Jimmy would go. It was at this critical juncture that World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins burst onto the scene, his presence a force of chaos and salvation all at once.


With the audience in a frenzy, Rollins' intervention was cut short by the sheer force of Drew McIntyre’s Claymore Kick, stopping the champion in his tracks. This unexpected turn of events left the WWE Universe in shock as the WrestleMania challenger laid out the World Heavyweight Champion, sending a clear message that resonated far beyond the confines of the ring: the road to WrestleMania is fraught with danger, alliances are fleeting, and in the squared circle, anything can happen.
