Nina Twin is trying to help, and I really hope that she succeeds. Though I picked the thorny path myself, I’m afraid of where it leads. Chemicals don’t strangle my pen, chemicals don’t make me sick again. I’m always so dubious of your intent, but I have to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

Bron Breakker & Tommaso Ciampa vs. Dirty Dawgz (Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode)

Breakker and Ciampa attack the Dawgz during their entrance! Brawling in the aisle, Tom does a tornillo and the babyfaces sit tall on the apron!

We get a bell, Ciampa and Ziggler legal, Tom working him over and making the tag. But Bron gets isolated and the Dawgz work him over at some length. Eventually Ciampa gets the tag and runs roughshod, double lariats taking the Dawgz out! The straps are down, Tom is fired up, front kick into Fairytale Ending but Roo rams him into the corner to block and send us to break.

Back from commercial, Dawgz in control but Ziggler gets dropped to the floor! Ciampa crawls for the tag but Roode pulls Breakker off the apron and throws him into the crowd! Dolph back in, leg pick, tag to Robert, putting boots to Tom. Powerbomb neckbreaker gets two!

Both men down and out, tags made, Bron in hot with shoulder blocks! Whip across, big lariat, duck a superkick, spear takes Ziggler out of his boots! Electric chair... ODE TO THE BULLDOGS BUT ROO BREAKS IT UP! Underhooks...

LA Knight cuts a promo about how we should call everyone we know, up to and including our sidepiece (listen pal none of my girls are sidepieces) because he’s about to make his entrance, and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a promo from... sigh... GUNTHER on Solo Sikoa about how he’s gonna chop the tattoos off his body and replace them with respect.

LA Knight makes his entrance and gets on the mic.

He recounts his feud with Grayson Waller to date—

Enter Grayson Waller, flanked by Sanga.

He crows about winning last week and LA says he might win but Knight always stays standing, and challenges Waller to a last man standing match. Grayson accepts!

We go backstage with Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta.

Indi accuses Persia of being unfocused, she says her eyes are on winning the Dusty, but when Hartwell leaves she dawdles and checks her phone.

Dakota Kai and Wendy Choo make their entrance to send us to break.

GUNTHER vs. Solo Sikoa

Brawling early, GUNTHER with elbows to the mush, Sikoa fires back with elbows of his own and the Ring General drops him with a lariat!

Tommaso Ciampa rolls up to tell him he doesn’t deserve a title shot because he got pinned tonight, to which Dolph says he calls the shots.

Bron Breakker rolls up and Ziggler says he’s the roadblock and he can win and Tom probably thinks he can too. Breakker says he’ll kick both their asses, and Dolph is pleased by this.

Joe Gacy and Harland are being creepy in the woods.

Gacy says Harland gets to take care of Draco Anthony next.

And so we go to break.

Persia blames herself but Indi says they win and lose as a team and they promise to get it next time.

Duke Hudson rolls up and gives Pirotta a big hug and walks off hand in hand with her, leaving Indi nervous because Dexter Lumis hasn’t texted her back.

Draco Anthony vs. Harland

Harland throwing Anthony around, forcing him to the floor for a breather. Palming him by the hair back up to the apron but Draco snaps his arm over the top rope and goes to work. Knocking the big man off his feet with a shoulder block, cover for a nearfall.
