S3 Episode 7 Raw & Smackdown Cards

Episode #7 (May 29, 2020):

Raw Card:

Show Opener: Roman Reigns opens Raw. Commentators note that Roman has been silent on social media for two weeks. Roman says that two weeks ago, Bray Wyatt was doing his best to mix up the pot. And whatever is up with this Cooperate Fiend, he's not having it. And he calls out Bray Wyatt. Corporate Funhouse Bray walks out. Bray goes for a firm handshake. Roman ignores it. Bray mentions that he's going to have to talk to the PR department about this. Roman tells Bray to cut the bullshit. What he is doing is wrong and he needs to own up to it. Bray chuckles and says that he's just looking up to his hero Roman Reigns and doing the same thing he does, you know, gossiping at the water cooler, make small talk to the receptionist, sucking up to the boss. You see, Roman, the boss wants Him to end you and what the boss says goes, right? And maybe you fessing up to your actions is a way to save yourself first. Roman steps up to Bray and asks if Bray is insinuated that he attacked Alestier Black. Bray responds saying that only Roman knows in his heart what is true. Roman sucker punches Bray Wyatt. Bray on the ground says that this is good. Let the anger out Roman, do what you always do Roman and fight to get what you want. Roman goes to beat down on Bray but stops. Bray Wyatt gets up and tells Roman that he's doing good and maybe he won't tell PR about this conversation. But before I go, just know Roman. Hang it there! We're all rooting for you! And then starts a Roman chant and leaves.


Match #1: Bianca Belair & Naomi vs. Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter

-Morgan & Ripley on commentary

RESULTS: BIANA BELAIR & NAOMI WINS


Segment: As The New Day are getting ready in gorilla, The Usos walk up and talk to New Day;. They tell them that out of respect and everything that's going down with them, they got they're back. They'll look into everything and try and find some solid evidence on Rollins and the LLC. New Day thanks the Usos and then Big E does the intro.

Match #2: Kofi Kingston w/ Big E & Woods vs. Seth Rollins w/ Murphy

RESULTS: SETH ROLLINS WINS

Segment: Carmella walks up to Shayna Baszler backstage, sorta like she's trying to calm down a wild animal. Carmella says that she has an idea on how to deal with Bliss & Jax. Carmella says that she knows that Shayna Baszler is aggressive as hell, in fact she's still got some bruises healing from the Women's Money in the Bank match, but the thing is that no matter how aggressive she is, she's going to get outnumbered every time. So Carmella proposes that she and Baszler team up and take on Bliss and Jax next week. Baszler responds asking why the hell should she work with Carmella. Carmella says, scared, that if they win next week, they can both challenge Nia Jax for the Women's Money in the Bank briefcase at Backlash. Baszler steps back and says fine. Carmella fist pumps as Baszler leaves.


Match #3: The Miz vs. Jinder Mahal

RESULTS: THE MIZ WINS


Video Package: Paul Heyman's promo last week

Match #4: Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan

RESULTS: SHEAMUS WINS

-After the match, Sheamus grabs the mic and tells to Paul Heyman that he doesn't give a shit about Brock Lesnar. I'm here for the Intercontinental Championship, THE most prestigious title in all of Sports-Entertainment, not some fruit rollup being held by some gorilla farmer. Brock Lesnar comes out of nowhere and F5s Sheamus.

Segment: Backstage Interview with John Morrison. John says that Sheamus is fool. Giving up a shot at the World Title? Foolish. Besides he's never going to take this IC Title. Neither is the Miz. You see at Money in the Bank, I did what I had to do to make sure I retain my IC Title. I know I can beat the Miz no sweat. But I just didn't want to deal with his BS. I don't need to prove myself to anyone in the WWE Universe. I'm the guy holding this title, not Sheamus, not the Miz. Me. John Morrison. The Shamen of Sexy. The Monday Night Delight. The Guru of Greatness. The Prince of Parkour. The Mayor of Slamtown. Me. Your Intercontiental Champion. Side note, in the background of this interview, we see King Corbin talking to LLC.

Main Event: AJ Styles vs. Keith Lee

RESULTS: AJ STYLES WINS


Smackdown Card:

Show Opener: Randy Orton opens up Smackdown. Orton begins "Let's cut right to the chase shall we? Braun, you want a shot at this title over my shoulder? You think you're worthy of a shot? If you think so you'll have to come out here and prove it to me first. So Braun come on out here and show me why "ThE MoNsTeR AmOnG MeN" deserves a shot at the viper!" Orton waits in the ring patiently, then Braun's music hits and Orton waits, no Braun. Orton says "What's wrong Braun? Don't you want it?" Then the Titan tron comes on to show Braun laid out backstage with paramedics checking up on him. They get him on a stretcher and into an ambulance and drive him away. We cut back to Orton who has a grim smile on his face. He shrugs his shoulders and leaves the ring.


Match #1: One Nation vs. Mustache Mountain

RESULTS: ONE NATION WINS


Segment: Post match interview with One Nation about the words of Heavy Machinery last week. Crews responds "We appreciate the fact that the tag team champions think so highly of us, however we think that "respect" comes from a misguided place. You see back then Heavy Machinery never vouched for us, they never stood up for us or had our backs! They only started to "respect" us when we suddenly became a threat on their radar. They aren't respecting us, they fear us. They fear the destructive power of two motivated men with a goal in mind and they know they can't beat us. They're looking for mercy and looking for us to back down in lieu of their "respect." Let it be known now that neither Tozawa or I will back down or show them mercy when we rip what is rightfully ours from their unconscious bodies at Backlash."


Match #2: Candice LeRae vs. Peyton Royce - Tournament Match

RESULTS: CANDICE LERAE WINS


Video Package: The IIconics are talking to each other about the recent teams eyeing their Women's tag titles on Raw. Peyton starts "Hey, Billie have you heard?" "Of what Peyton?' "Well it looks like some "tag teams" over on Raw want a shot at our titles!" "What?! Those talentless losers want a shot at The IIconics? YOU'VE GOTTA BE JOKING ME! Hell I'd even take some NXT noobies before we take on those hacks from RAW!" "Me too! Guess we'll just have to show the Raw how great we are so no one from that silly brand challenges us again!" "You're right Peyton! We'll show them what it means to be...' IICONIC!!


Match #3: Matt Riddle vs. Mustafa Ali

-Samoa Joe on commentary

RESULTS: MATT RIDDLE WINS

-After the match Matt Riddle shakes Ali's hand and the two leave the ring with a greater respect for one another.


Segment: Interview with Asuka about the Tournament to decide the #1 contender for the women's title at Backlash. "I do not care about who wins. Asuka will destroy anyone in that ring no matter who it is."


Match #4: Kevin Owens vs. Drew Gulak

RESULTS: KEVIN OWENS WINS


Segment: Backstage interview with Randy Orton about what happened to Braun Strowman. Orton begins "Well it's really a shame. I was looking forward to a new challenger for my title. It feels like I haven't had a formidable one in so-" a man in a suit cuts Orton off and whispers something in his ear. Orton looks shocked at what the man told him and says "Sorry, we're going to have to cut this interview short" Orton leaves in a bit of a hurry. Then we hear off screen "WHERE IS HE?!' "WHERE IS THAT BASTARD!" Braun Strowman storms through the interview area ripping off sling and a neck brace he is destroying the backstage area looking for Orton. We see Strowman storm off screen.


Match #5: Charlotte Flair vs. Bayley - Tournament Match

-Sasha Banks watches the match backstage
