John Cena reflects on prospect of WWE retirement
As John Cena's WWE career appears to be starting its wind-down, he reflects on the prospect of retirement and the difficulty of balancing multiple careers.
Becky Lynch appreciates fans always having her back
WWE star Becky Lynch joins Ariel Helwani to share how fans appreciate that they can related to her.
If the goal was to hype their triple-threat match at TLC, mission accomplished. Charlotte Flair -- just like she did at Survivor Series -- was disqualified for using a Kendo Stick in a high-profile match. This time, Charlotte beat down Asuka with the foreign object, before Becky Lynch, who was sitting at the announcer’s table, got her hands on one and did the same to Flair. But it was Asuka who would get the last laugh, pummeling both with the Kendo Stick as the show came to a close. No doubt their clash Sunday will be equally, and likely more, violent than Tuesday’s fisticuffs.
Really solid go-home show Tuesday on SmackDown Live, highlighted by a rap battle, an impromptu tag-team match between The Miz and Shane McMahon versus the Vegas Boys, and Rey Mysterio attacking Randy Orton ahead of their TLC match. But perhaps the most intriguing battle came when Jeff Hardy and Rusev teamed up to beat Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura, with the Bulgarian Brute landing a Machka Kick on the United Stated champ for the win. Here’s hoping this is a precursor for Rusev, who deserves bigger and better things in 2019.
Hard to believe Daniel Bryan could be so effective as a heel as quickly as he has become. But his tree-hugging rhetoric has really gotten under the skin of fans, as he showed again Tuesday on SmackDown. And if his words weren’t enough, Bryan beat 205 Live star Mustafa Ali, then attacked him afterward. The stuff of a big-time bad guy.
SCU carries both momentum and uncertainty into Ring of Honor Final Battle 2018
Few could have expected SoCal Uncensored to become as popular as it has in the world of Ring of Honor, and yet its success and status encompass the uncertainty ROH faces heading into (and following) Final Battle 2018.
This week’s episode of NXT TV featured a surprise appearance when, for the first time in over three years, Tyler Breeze performed on a televised NXT event. He was revealed as Ricochet’s mystery opponent. Ricochet won the match and retained his North American championship. In other action, EC3 defeated Bobby Fish. The Undisputed Era ambushed EC3 after the match, but Heavy Machinery emerged and made the save. Mia Yim continued her winning ways when she claimed victory over Reina Gonzalez. The win qualified her for a Fatal 4-Way match, which will take place in two weeks, to determine a new number one contender to the NXT women’s championship. Bianca Belair and Lacey Evans have qualified for that match as well. Finally, in tag team action, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch defeated The Mighty. On next week’s show, Aleister Black and Johnny Gargano will do battle in a steel cage while Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke will take on Io Shirai and Dakota Kai.
This week's 205 Live was solely focused on previewing Sunday's Cruiserweight Championship match between Buddy Murphy and Cedric Alexander. Both won lengthy matches (over Gran Metallik and Tony Nese) that allowed them to showcase themselves and had a brief in-ring encounter to close the show. However, it seemed like there was a missed opportunity to showcase Mustafa Ali, who made his SmackDown Live debut the night before. His match was mentioned once, as motivation for Alexander, but a video package or backstage segment would've done more to highlight Ali, who is on the rise.
Stars in development: Life at the WWE Performance Center
The WWE stars of tomorrow train at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. So who's next, and how are they going to get to the top?
Matt Bloom, the head coach at the WWE Performance Center, talks about the depth and versatility of the staff tasked with training the next generation of stars.
Robbie Brookside, a coach at the WWE Performance Center with nearly four decades of wrestling experience, describes the harsh conditions under which he learned his trade during his teenage years.
In a 2-on-3 handicap match against AoP and Drake Maverick, Bobby Roode and Chad Gable - sporting new matching gear - won the Raw tag team championships by rolling up an overconfident Maverick in the blink of an eye. Any change is likely a move in the right direction for the previously listless (but talent-rich) Raw tag team division, but this is a tough moment for AoP. For all we know, however, this could be a title flip-flop set up for TLC. Time will tell.
Everything is set to come to a head at TLC, but for at least one more week, Baron Corbin's ironclad grip on Monday Night Raw was felt throughout the night. There were only six matches over the course of the night; in addition to the Raw tag team title change, Ember Moon took care of Tamina with Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax in opposite corners, and Bayley got the best of Alicia Fox with help from Sasha Banks and Apollo Crews. Corbin's hand was directly involved in the rest of the night's action. Drew McIntyre wrestled a predictably entertaining match against Dolph Ziggler, which ultimately led to several crazy near-falls and an excellently set up Claymore kick from out of nowhere for the McIntyre win. Post-match, McIntyre continued his attack with a second Claymore on the outside that looked like it could have taken Ziggler's head clean off.
After Seth Rollins opened the night with an impassioned promo that blamed all of Raw's problems -- in storyline and in real life -- on Baron Corbin, a TLC match was set for Monday night's main event. Corbin manipulated newly-minted referee Heath Slater throughout the night, first putting Slater in a spot to help Lio Rush get a win over Elias despite blatant interference from Bobby Lashley. Once the main event rolled around, Slater was once again in position to try to help Corbin; Slater was used throughout the match to help Corbin, and he even pushed the ladder open when Rollins appeared ready to win the match, but Rollins eventually overcame the odds and walked out with championship intact. Corbin will eventually have to pay for these sins, and whether it's Sunday night against Braun Strowman or sometime down the line, despite everything else that may be tough to swallow, Corbin has undeniably benefited on an individual basis from his time as GM.
The "New" Daniel Bryan
The boys break down the "new" Daniel Bryan and say farewell to the Dynamite Kid.
Aleister Black interrupted NXT champion Tommaso Ciampa's promo on this week's episode of NXT TV and invoked his NXT championship rematch clause for TakeOver: Phoenix. Johnny Gargano interrupted and insisted he and Black weren't finished. After a Ciampa recommendation, Gargano and Black will finish their story inside of a steel cage in two weeks. Gargano escaped a Black Mass kick, but Ciampa wasn't so lucky. NXT women's champion Shayna Baszler defeated Dakota Kai. As Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir continued the post match assault, Io Shirai made the save. In other action, the Forgotten Sons beat Raul Mendoza and Humberto Carrillo while Matt Riddle defeated the debuting Punishment Martinez. Following the win, Kassius Ohno blindsided Riddle with a spinning elbow.
The Lucha House Party picked up a win over TJP/Mike Kanellis in a pinata-heavy 205 Live main event (trust me). We've come a long way from thumbtacks in the ring. The Brian Kendrick also picked up a DQ win over Drew Gulak, but Gulak and Gentleman Jack Gallagher got the best of Kendrick and Akira Tozawa. Next week, the champ and number 1 contender get warm-up matches, as Buddy Murphy takes on Noam Dar, and Cedric Alexander tries for vengeance on Tony Nese. (Photo from @WWE205Live)
WWE Power Rankings: Becky Lynch is 'The Man'
At this moment in time in WWE, all eyes are on Becky Lynch, so it's all too appropriate that she's the first woman ever to top the ESPN WWE Power Rankings.
It was an all-around solid two hours of SmackDown Live, thanks to some hostile rhetoric, including Samoa Joe, who from inside a bar, taunted Jeff Hardy during his match against Randy Orton (leading to The Viper’s win) and superior action, including Jey Uso’s triple-threat win versus Xavier Woods and Cesaro. And once again, we were given the best seven seconds of WWE television a week, when R-Truth and Carmella made their way from the backstage area for a much-needed dance break.
Daniel Bryan played the heel card brilliantly Tuesday on Miz TV by continuously disparaging the crowd. “If you want to count sins, I kicked one man in groin one time and these people commit countless atrocities to the earth every single day, every single week, every single month.” Bryan and Miz even worked together to take out AJ Styles, who had rushed the ring to get his hands on Bryan. Later, in the main event, Styles defeated Miz before a brutal assault from Bryan on Styles. No question heel Daniel Bryan is more intriguing than the beloved version.
Solid opening promo by Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Asuka, who will compete for the SmackDown women’s championship at TLC in a couple of weeks. But I was even more impressed by the ensuing tag-team match between Charlotte/Asuka and Sonya Deville/Mandy Rose, with the latter two coming out on top. How huge would it be for the women’s division if they could finally elevate themselves to main-event material?
WWE is set up for undeniable women's WrestleMania main event
A mix of undeniable crowd reactions, good luck in some regards and bad luck in others has WWE set up with an undeniable main event for WrestleMania 35: Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch.
Raw was once again focused around Baron Corbin's growing power grab as the GM in waiting. This week was slightly less successful, as his Drew McIntyre appreciation night turned into Finn Balor embarrassing McIntyre by helping Dolph Ziggler beat him. Just moments later, Balor fed Lio Rush directly into a guitar shot from Elias, and Balor later defeated Jinder Mahal. Balor couldn't quite escape unscathed, however, as McIntyre found him and through him into a gigantic pile of empty beer kegs backstage. Finally, Dean Ambrose won another round in his battle with Seth Rollins. After making an entrance to air raid sirens with an entourage of gas masks, Ambrose flexed his vocal muscles and goaded Rollins out once more. The action spilled out into the crowd, but Ambrose once again got the last laugh with multiple Dirty Deeds.
Any hope that AoP's ascension to the top of the Raw tag team division would start the Raw tag team division has thus far been unfounded. The tag team champions were used in a bait-and-switch that turned a Bobby Roode vs. Drake Maverick match into a 3-on-2 handicap match -- with Maverick ultimately embarrassing Roode by picking up the pin. The Revival once again served as cannon fodder for the Lucha House Party, which inexplicably got a 3-on-1 handicap match against Scott Dawson (and predictably won). Finally, the former SmackDown tag team champions, Heath Slater & Rhyno, were forced to face off with their jobs on the line; Slater won, and was promptly handed a referee's shirt by Baron Corbin. Oh, and Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre officially broke up, had a match and Ziggler won.
Even amidst the relative lack of forward momentum heading towards TLC, there was a lot to like from the women of Raw on Monday. The Riott Squad short-circuited the opening tag team match by putting Natalya through a table, and while they were thrown out of the building, Ronda Rousey found a new partner in Ember Moon and that match became the main event. Moon hit an Eclipse on Tamina, and Rousey finished it off with an armbar. Bayley and Sasha Banks verbalized for the first time on air that they wanted to be the first ever WWE women's tag team champions, and then went out and beat Mickie James and Alicia Fox. And, in what can only be described as the most interesting wrinkle of the night, Renee Young pushed back against Corey Graves' inquiries into her marriage with Dean Ambrose and any insights she might have into Ambrose's state of mind. It was only getting more and more awkward avoiding the topic, and giving the announcers more backstory and character depth is a welcome move.
Jake Hager, known to WWE fans as Jack Swagger, said during an appearance on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday that he will make his MMA debut on Jan. 26 against heavyweight JW Kiser at Bellator 214. The Inglewood, California, event will be headlined by the Heavyweight Grand Prix final between Fedor Emelianenko and Ryan Bader. Hager, 36, wrestled and played football at the University of Oklahoma.
At TLC, Becky Lynch and Charolotte Flair will have to deal with more than each other for the women’s SmackDown championship. Asuka won a battle royal Tuesday, a victory that propelled her into what will now be a triple-threat tables, ladders and chairs match. This dynamic with three women, none of whom like each other, and their all-around appeal and ability could very steal the show in the final PPV event of 2018.
Congratulations to Jeff Hardy for his 20 years of service in the WWE. On Tuesday, he was feted with video package that showcased his career highlights. But with most of the SmackDown roster looking on, Samoa Joe emerged from the locker room and mocked some of Hardy’s personal shortcomings. An outraged Hardy challenged Joe to a match, but the villain turned around and walked away. Nonetheless, while an anticlimactic ending, the daredevil Hardy deserves props for not only lasting, but thriving, in the business as long as he has.
So what was the point of Shinsuke Nakamura’s premature attack on Rusev? They were scheduled for a one-on-one match before the United States champ’s Kinshasa and subsequent assault. Perhaps this is the start of another brief feud leading into a title match at TLC, which would be terrific. But doesn’t it seem like too little, too late for the Bulgarian Brute? Since his split with Aiden English, Rusev has been little more than an afterthought.
The Dip Is Back!
Rosenberg, SGG, and Dip catch you up on the last two weeks plus take some extended strolls down memory lane.
Soon to be called up Lars Sullivan defeated NXT newcomer Keith Lee in this week’s NXT TV main event with his Freak Accident slam. In tag team action, Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan defeated The Mighty, but The Mighty responded with a post-match attack. To round out the show, Mia Yim beat Vanessa Borne and EC3 picked up a win over Marcel Barthel. After his victory, EC3 claimed that he’d seek revenge on Bobby Fish of the Undisputed Era for injuring his leg last month.
Cedric Alexander picked up a big win on this week's 205 Live, pinning cruiserweight champ Buddy Murphy in a tag team match (with Mustafa Ali vs. Tony Nese). It seems like Alexander is on his way to a rematch with Murphy. Elsewhere, Ariya Daivari made a surprise return, coming to support Hideo Itami, telling him he respects him. Big show ahead next week, with a tornado tag match pitting TJP/Mike Kanellis vs the Lucha House Party, and Drew Gulak vs. The Brian Kendrick
Baron Corbin made Monday Night Raw all about his major flex on Braun Strowman last week, and anyone else who would challenge his path to a permanent GM role. He, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre laid waste to Elias to open the show, and treated Finn Balor the same at show's close. The WWE is playing up this injury angle hard with Strowman, and with Corbin flexing his power so brazenly, something will have to give. It seems likely that Strowman will win with one arm, or the terms of the match will change. For now, the triumvirate of destruction isn't a bad way to carry Raw for the next few weeks, at least.
Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler are basically incapable of having a bad match. The Intercontinental open challenge was another stellar showing from both men, and the superplex into Falcon Arrow as a finish after a grueling match was a unique touch. Rollins' chief rival Dean Ambrose wasn't in the building, but Ambrose reminded us all of his tremendous promo skills as he sat in a doctor's office and got himself "immunized" from all of the fans he'll have to deal with next week in Houston and beyond. As funny as it was to get a doctor involved, Ambrose predictably turned his barbs towards Rollins in the end. "No shower can wash away your sins. No medicine to cure your sickness... I'm going to do the decent and merciful thing, and put you out of your misery for good."
WWE keeps going back to the well by appealing to lowest common denominator humor, and this Drake Maverick/urination angle shows no signs of slowing down. If WWE feels like that's what's going to appeal most to its audience, then so be it. What was turning into a decent tag team title match between AoP and Bobby Roode & Chad Gable got short circuited as Roode's robe fell victim to a Maverick bathroom break. Rounding out the show: Lucha House party beat The Revival 3-on-2; Ember Moon defeated Alicia Fox and gave her new Mixed Match Challenge partner Curt Hawkins hope of ending his absurdly long win streak tomorrow night; and Jinder Mahal beat No Way Jose in a fairly one-sided contest. Nia Jax continued to try to get heat from the Becky Lynch situation in a verbal confrontation with Ronda Rousey, but when Natalya stepped in to even things up, she got blindsided by the Riott Squad and the confrontation between Raw women's champion and challenger at TLC got pushed off for at least a week.
The complicated legacy of AJ Styles' WWE championship run
AJ Styles held the WWE championship for 371 days, but despite the phenomenal work in the ring, there was much missing from his reign.
Randy Orton hit an RKO on an airborne Rey Mysterio on the outside of the ring, followed up with a second RKO for the pinball, and then claimed Mysterio's mask as SmackDown went off the air. They had some battles more than a decade ago on SmackDown, but it seems as though this is just the start of renewed tensions. On the flip side, Charlotte Flair defeated Billie Kay to open SmackDown and had Peyton Royce beat in a second match. Though that one ended in DQ, Flair continued the path of destruction that began at Survivor Series against Ronda Rousey.
By this picture, you can pretty easily figure out how the "Thanksgiving Feast" fight played out. The New Day put Big Show and Sheamus through tables on the way to a victory over the SmackDown tag team champions. After the match, New Day covered Cesar's in a variety of Thanksgiving-themed foods.
Daniel Bryan pronounced the "Yes" movement dead, in a promo clearly designed to cement his heel turn. He spent most of his speech talking in the third person, and wrapped it all up by calling himself the "new" Daniel Bryan. Rounding out the show, The Miz insisted an uprepared Shane McMahon tag with him, which led to Miz getting rolled up by one of the local enhancement talents labeled the Bryant brothers. Finally, Naomi and Asuka (in matching gear, which can only fuel speculation of a women's tag team title to come) defeated Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.
WWE Survivor Series recap: Raw dominates, Flair snaps on Rousey, Lesnar outlasts Bryan
It was a clean sweep for Raw as the stars of Monday night went 6-0 against their SmackDown opponents, but in the biggest shock of the night, Charlotte Flair snapped on Ronda Rousey.
Brock Lesnar (Universal Champion) defeats Daniel Bryan (WWE Champion) to give Raw a clean sweep over SmackDown, 6-0, at Survivor Series.
Enzo Amore bought a ticket to Survivor Series and tried to steal the show by standing on his chair, dancing and cutting a promo as the crowd cheered before he got kicked out.
If you missed the first hour of Monday Night Raw, you missed a lot of Braun Strowman and Baron Corbin. Shortly after Commissioner Stephanie McMahon announced the two would go head-to-head at TLC next month -- with Strowman getting Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble if he wins and Corbin solidifying his standing at general manager if he wins -- they went at it in a three-on-three elimination match. In the end, Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley pummeled Strowman, notably tying him up with a belt outside the ring and crushing him with chairs and stairs. Strowman walked away on his own two feet, but later, we were told he suffered a shattered elbow.
Battered and beaten the night before by a completely unraveled Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey made an appearance Monday, but she found herself in the tricky position of addressing her Survivor Series fallout, looking ahead to Nia Jax at TLC and putting on a solid performance that night against Mickie James, whom the champ beat in just a few minutes. Rousey was solid in intertwining all the simultaneous storylines, but the real question still remains: What’s next between her and Charlotte, especially considering they are on different shows?
‘Tis the season of dragging out storylines. Survivor Series is in the rearview mirror, and TLC, which is nearly a month away, appears to be little more than a buffer between now and the Royal Rumble. But after a game of cat and mouse all night between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, there was at least a little advancement in the saga. As Ambrose maligned Rollins, Roman Reigns and all the “dirty little children” in the crowd, Rollins ran to the ring, but was ultimately beaten down by Ambrose, thanks to a low blow, which led to two Dirty Deeds. The physiological battle was intriguing, but the truth is, the storyline feels like it’s going to get worn fast considering the payoff won’t come until TLC.

Everything you need to know about the 2018 WWE TLC pay-per-view: match cards, results, news, features, history and more from ESPN.com.
Both Keith Lee and Lars Sullivan picked up wins on this week’s episode of NXT TV in matches taped prior to TakeOver: War Games II in Los Angeles this past weekend. Following Sullivan’s win, he continued to do more damage to his incapacitated opponent. Lee had seen enough, interrupted and delivered a running shoulder block to Sullivan. Sullivan, who will graduate to the main roster soon, as evidenced by promos that aired this week, will attempt to seek retribution next week in a match against Lee. This week’s main event saw Nikki Cross pick up a win over Candice LeRae.
It was probably the best match we've seen from Gran Metallik since the Cruiserweight Classic, as he picked up the victory over TJP in a solid 205 Live main event. But a distraction from Maria Kanellis allowed Mike Kanellis to attack the Lucha House Party with a chair to further their feud. Elsewhere on 205 Live, Tony Nese got a win over Noam Dar and set up a tag team match next week with Nese-Buddy Murphy against Mustafa Ali-Cedric Alexander. (Photo from @WWE205Live)

WWE Evolution recap: Rousey and Lynch retain, Baszler becomes two-time NXT champ, Storm wins Mae Young
Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch successfully defended their championships belts, while Nia Jax won the Battle Royal.
Shayna Baszler is a two-time NXT women's champion, after what could easily be called the match of the night thus far at Evolution, against Kairi Sane. Late in the match, Sane sent Baszler flying into the crowd -- right into Baszler's friends Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. Shafir and Duke got involved with the finish, attacking Sane while the ref was otherwise occupied -- allowing Baszler to pick up the submission win. On a night where Ronda Rousey -- the fourth member of that quartet known as the 4 Horsewomen of MMA -- is also in action, it's worth keeping an eye on later in the night.
Sasha Banks, Bayley and Natalya bested the Riott Squad in a really fun six-woman tag team match. When Banks stepped up to the top rope and hit a frog splash for the victory, the crowd got as loud as it's been all night inside of the Nassau Coliseum.
