The night is calling, I have to go. The wolf is hungry, he runs the show. He’s licking his lips, he’s ready to win, on the hunt tonight for love at first sting. Here I am, to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

Renee Young welcomes us to the show and introduces her panel, tonight consisting of Peter Rosenberg, David Otunga, and Jerry “the King” Lawler. We’re informed that we’ll join Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in the social media lounge later and we go out into the crowd with Sam Roberts.

Our first video package is for the women’s Royal Rumble match and Alexa Bliss joins the panel, replacing David Otunga, to discuss the match. They make explicit the idea that the winner of the Rumble gets to choose which champion they wrestle, and Alexa wants to wrestle Nia Jax but would be happy to beat Asuka at WrestleMania. The panel run down the card and we take a quick break for some house ads.

In the locker room, Jason Jordan rolls up on Seth Rollins, who wants to talk to him about tonight. Jordan says he’s honored to team with Seth and with his superior pedigree there’s no way they can lose. They’re gonna break the Bar, and Angle didn’t throw them together on some whim. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin roll up, Chad laughing about Jason being a daddy’s boy. Jordan mockingly insists that the locker room is just for champions but embraces Gable.

Jason tells Shelton his dad has told him a lot about him and mentions that American Alpha were almost called the World’s Greatest Tag Team. The tension mounts as Chad points out that Jordan couldn’t make it as a singles guy. Jason points to the title as evidence that he’s doing better and wishes them luck in their match tonight.

The panel discusses both tag title matches in turn and we get a video package on the history of the Royal Rumble featuring the winner of the first Royal Rumble, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan. This is followed by a handcam promo from Bayley about the historical importance of the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble and the part the fans played in making it happen.

Drew Gulak, Jack Gallagher, & TJ Perkins TJP vs. Gran Metalik, Kalisto, & Lince Dorado

Kalisto and Gulak to start, Drew hot at the Philadelphia crowd for chanting. Collar and elbow, Gulak with a waistlock takedown, Kalisto rolls out and does his “Lucha!” taunt. Waistlock of his own, Drew reverses with an armbar, kneels on the wrist, cover comes up empty, Kalisto picks the leg and folds him up, spinning inverted figure four leglock!

Break, tags to Gallagher and Metalik, knucklelock, Gran rolls through, picks the leg, snapmare, crucifix, only good for one and we cycle to Dorado and TJP. Perkins with a wristlock, Lince reverses, tag to Kalisto, side headlock, big flying mare, Perkins to his feet, drop down, leapfrog, handstand headscissors into a dropkick and a tag to Dorado. Duck a punch, throw a chop, whip reversed, TJ cartwheels out of a monkey flip!

Dorado pastes him with a right, slides under, arm drag, Frankensteiner, leg pick into a standing moonsault, only two! Whip, TJP ends up on the apron and Lince dropkicks him to the floor! Low bridge sends Gulak to meet him, the lucha lads get up on the post... TRIPLE MOONSAULTS TO THE FLOOR!

Short break, Perkins puts Lince into the turnbuckles, whip across, Dorado gets a boot up, to the second, he jumps into a dropkick! Tag to Gulak, boot to the face, post the knee, tag to Jack. Romero Special partially applied, he stomps the knees, cover gets one and the Gentleman goes after the knee something fierce. Tag back to Gulak, continuing to beat on him, tag to TJP, double rolling leglock into an inverted Indian deathlock.

Blocking the tag, cravate applied, tag to Gallagher. Stomp to the face, he knocks Kalisto off the apron and goes to the second, where Drew insists he gets down and they have a whole argument of it.

Charlotte Flair joins the panel to talk about the women’s Royal Rumble and wanting to have entered it to challenge Alexa to a champion vs. champion match at WrestleMania. This is followed by another historical package, this time for the 1992 Royal Rumble.

We go to the social media lounge with Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. KO says it’s not like they have anything better to do than sit here and talk to Renee. Zayn mocks a man’s grammar and the way he spells his own name and Owens admits he’s not answering questions any more, just blocking people. A question of if the guy who gets the pin has more validity as champion comes up but they insist that they’ll be equal.

Two sideplates, two fantastic competitors, do the math. Kevin and Sami refuse to answer a question from Peter Rosenberg but are happy to answer Jerry Lawler. They bring up him eliminating Max Moon in 1993 and are asked if they have a “straightly” for tonight, and Owens cottons on, realizing Young is cherry-picking the best questions he’s already swatted down.

They do have a strategy, though, but they’re not giving it out because they don’t want to give AJ Styles any more of a chance than they need to. Rosenberg starts talking and they “Nope!” him off and Lawler asks if they should get a handle they can jiggle when Peter’s mouth starts running. This gets KO to bring up the idea that Rosenberg actually pays to be on the shows and he hits on the idea of talking to Matt Hardy about DELETING him.

The Road to KOMania III kicks off tonight and there’s so many tweets from Quebec that are excited to see them win, and this leads to an extended sequence in French. Another historical video follows, about the 1995 Royal Rumble.

Balor Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows) vs. the Revival (Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson)

Arm wringer, tag to Gallows, double whip into a double back body drop and Dawson hits the floor.

Wilder checks on him and stops Luke from going after him but his tag isn’t recognized by referee Shawn Bennett. Never fear, Dawson pulls ahead by raking the eyes and tags Dash in for a strike combo. Big right from a big hoot and he bields Wilder into the corner for body blows and a big slicing right! Scoop slam, one for Scott as well, whip across and Dawson pulls Dash out of the ring to send us to a quick house ad break.

We’re back with Anderson shooting Wilder off into a blind tag! Right hands, Wilder catches a boot, tosses it to Dawson, dragon screw over the ropes! In the ring, repeated elbow drops to the knee, snapping the leg to the mat, dropkick to the back of the head, guillotine leg drop and he hangs Karl in the Tree of Woe.

John “Bradshaw” Layfield replaces Jerry “the King” Lawler on the panel for the second half. They run down the card for tonight and toss to a video recap of NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia from last night. We get a handcam video from Rusev Day singing about Rusev Day.

Alundra Blayze joins the panel, replacing Otunga. She talks about how every era of women’s wrestling meant something different and she would have loved to have a Royal Rumble. She then says she’d like to beat Asuka’s ass and break her streak! Badgered to pick a winner, she dithers and eventually settles on Nia Jax. We go back out to Sam Roberts with the crowd for a minute.

This is followed by a video package for the Universal Championship match and panel discussion thereof. A video package on the 1998 Royal Rumble follows.

Time for Bobby Roode’s United States Open Challenge. He comes out and says tonight is all about the numbers, starting with thirty and ending with one, much like the United States Championship Tournament went from eight to one, and that one is absolutely... glorious. The United States Championship has a rich history and tradition and he couldn’t think of a better place than the birthplace of America to keep it alive.

It’s Mojo Rawley!

Blockbuster countered, Roode slips out, off the ropes, flying forearm, a lariat, lying in wait, charging in, corner lariat and the swinging neckbreaker but it’s not enough to get the job done.

To the corner, the blockbuster connects but the Glorious DDT is blocked, fireman’s carry countered to a folding press, no good! Thrust spinebuster from Mojo gets a nearfall and he follows it up with disdainful slaps, jawing at the champion. Drawing him up, he runs the ropes right into the spinning spinebuster for two. Glorious DDT countered again with a back body drop this time!

Rawley puts Bobby into the post shoulder first, sets him up and charges in but Roode blocks the punch with a boot! Hooking him...

Bobby Roode wins by pinfall with a tornado Glorious DDT, retaining the WWE United States Championship.

AJ Styles wins by pinfall with a victory roll pin on Kevin Owens despite there being a question of whether KO was the legal man, retaining the WWE Championship.

Backstage, Owens and Zayn are yelling at Shane McMahon about this latest injustice. KO eventually calms down a little and apologizes for yelling but says he can’t be screwed out of another title. Shane, asked if he saw it, says “Yep!” and Kev loses his mind as we cut away.

The Usos cut a promo about “these two chumps”, saying they’ve been asked about how they’re getting ready for this, but they stay ready, and they ask how you prepare for them, and the answer is you can’t. They welcome Gable and Benjamin to the Uso Penitentiary.
