We are back on the road for the first regular show as we head towards Toronto in August. I'm not sure what to expect in the future, but we have about two months to go before the next takeover, which is hopefully enough time to set up something great. Hopefully it will be back to normal here, even if the free weeks are still good. Let us begin.
In a submission match, the announcers beat Oney Lorcan / Danny Burch's double main event against The Undisputed Era and Kushida against Drew Gulak.
Io Shirai / Candice LeRae vs. Marina Shafir / Jessamyn Duke
Shayna Baszler watches from the ramp. Shirai has a broken shoulder so Candice Shafir runs into the corner and gets a jackknife rollup for two. Back in and Shafir kicks his face so Duke can come in for a kick in the back. It's back to Shafir for a judo throw and something of a torture bench, but with Candice leaning over her back instead of over her shoulders.
This is broken, but Shafir throws Shirai off the apron to keep Candice in trouble. Candice manages to send Duke to Shafir and an Enziguri allows Shirai the hot day. The 619-hit duke and a springboard dropkick make it even worse. Shirai meets the Baszler arm mauler on Duke, but Baszler pulls her away from the lunar storm. That's okay with Shirai, who attacks Baszler instead. Candice lunges at Shafir and Duke and the match is thrown at 5:45.
Result: Candice LeRae / Io Shirai vs. Marina Shafir / Jessamyn Duke Faced A Double Disqualification As All Four Fought On The Ground (5:45)
The big brawl continues after the game, and also Baszler mixes with. Referees have problems solving this and can not quite break it.
We look back on Tyler Breeze vs. Velveteen Dream at Takeover.
Dream talks about how solid and reliable it is, but he does not mean the title. Get ready for the next experience.
We look back at Drew Gulak vs. Kushida from two weeks ago.
Drew Gulak against Kushida
Submission match. Kushida sets off with a pair of body scissors to get started, as the announcers get in their MMA terms. Gulak has to hide and Kushida turns around his back to show off a bit. Make sure and Kushida starts by the arm before sending Gulak outside without much difficulty. The armbar goes on, but Gulak recovers from the trouble. The Gory Stretch continues, with both arms of Kushida bent backwards until they almost touch each other.
This is broken, so Gulak goes with something like a Boston crab to switch back instead. An armstrap headlock (Mauro: "As annoying as a robocall.") Holds Kushida down before Gulak switches to a normal arm bar. Kushida also gets out and it's a hiptoss in a basement dropkick. A Springboard Tornado DDT sets up the Cross Armbreaker, but Gulak gets a foot on the rope.
They roll around in a kind of Pinfall reversal sequence in a regular game, but this time Gulak gets into an ankle block. Kushida escapes again and takes it for a few kicks on the chest to the apron. They shoot it back in while Kushida hits a handspring elbow. Kushida shakes him off and knocks on the hoverboard lock at 10:07.
Result: Kushida b. Drew Gulak – Hoverboard Lock (10:07)
After the match, Kushida applauds and Gulak shakes his hand.
Aaliyah and Vanessa Borne do not like the idea that Mia Yim thinks she should get a title shot. They do not think she looks like a master, so they have a few books for them, including books on fashion, English and grammar.
In two weeks: Shirai against Baszler for the women's title in the cage.
We see Mansoor winning the Battle Royal at Super Showdown and his speech after the game.
Oney Lorcan / Danny Burch vs. Kyle O & # 39; Reilly / Roderick Strong
Lorcan and O'Reilly start by grabbing Kyle, who puts him on the mat to get a broken leglock. If that does not work, they hammer into the corner until O'Reilly kicks him in the face. Everything collapses and it's a big fight as the era is sent outside to run from Lorcan.
Burch sends O'Reilly from Lorcan in the half and half suplex, Strong has to parry. It's Strong again for the loud chops in the corner and the first backbreaker keeps Lorcan in trouble. A running knee to the rear makes it worse and Lorcan's throat is catapulted into the lower rope. Chinlock continues, but Strong lets go so he can push Burch off the apron with a clever move. Another slugout goes to O'Reilly, but Lorcan is right back with a running blockbuster.
That's enough for the removal to Burch, so that the house can be cleaned. A power bomb in the crossface has O'Reilly in trouble, but Strong saves quickly. O'Reilly meets a rebound lariat from Dean Ambrose for two, Lorcan parries. Everything breaks down and it's a four-way knockdown, so here's Jaxson Ryker, who defeats safety on the way to the ring. The distraction causes Burch to roll on the needle at 9:45 O'Reilly.
Result: Oney Lorcan / Danny Burch born. Kyle O'Reilly / Roderick Strong – Rollup to O'Reilly (9:45)
Candice LeRae / Io Shirai vs. Marina Shafir / Jessamyn Duke went to a double disqualification as all four fought on the ground
Kushida b. Drew Gulak – hoverboard lock
Oney Lorcan / Danny Burch geb. Kyle O'Reilly / Roderick Strong – Rollup to O'Reilly
