Napalm showers showed the cowards we weren’t there to mess around. Through heat exhaustion and mind distortion, a military victory mounted on innocent ground, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.

Kelani Jordan cracks that the contract is half Elektra Lopez, Arianna Grace tries to be inspirational, and Roxanne Perez rolls up to congratulate her and warn her that it doesn’t mean she’s automatically going to become champion.

Lyra Valkyria makes her entrance and gets on the mic.

She greets the crowd and puts Becky Lynch over. She says they both brought it but what she’ll remember most is how the crowd made it feel like magic and they showed the world what a main event women’s title match is all about. She knows the locker room is packed full of hungry competitors who want to take the title from her, and all their eyes are fixed on the Iron Survivor Challenge at Deadline—

Xia Li makes her way through the crowd and Lyra tells security to let her through. Xia asks if she saw what she did to Becky last night and lays out a security guard with a crescent kick! Valkyria holds the title up and seemingly accepts the challenge!

Baron Corbin rolls up to tell him nobody cares and Lee asks why he’s so angry before telling him Ilja Dragunov’s gonna beat the brakes off of him but he’d be happier if he did it himself.

Arianna Grace interrupts the announcements to talk about how we, the fans, are the real winner— KARMEN PETROVIC CUTS HER OFF AND BLINDSIDES HER!

Joe Gacy cuts a promo where he talks about his history, people calling him the weird guy and the maniac and he kept the voice so quiet he could barely hear it but it was still there. Now it’s like he’s in his own personal hell and maybe he does know what to do.

Otis Dozovic makes his entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Ilja Dragunov cuts a promo about how Carmelo Hayes was a warrior and he’ll look fondly back on their battles but Baron Corbin is a force, and they may have met before, but with the title on his shoulder he’s a different man, and the only person who can slay the dragon is the dragon himself.

She opens it and starts reading it when he arrives to tell her reading people’s mail is illegal and she doesn’t want to be involved in this anyway. Duke Hudson and Thea Hail roll up and Jacy changes the subject by pointing out they have a tag title defense next week.

Chase calls class off for the day and is real nervous as he looks at the papers.

Back from commercial, we get a hype reel for Iron Survivor Challenge.

Carmelo Hayes is in the ring and on the mic.

He wants to cut to the chase and says this is bigger than titles, it’s about his friend and brother Trick Williams, and he wants to talk about it.

Enter Trick Williams.

Hayes says before he says anything he wants to say he understands why he’s upset at losing the opportunity of a lifetime, but he needs to understand that roadblocks are part of the journey. He needed somebody by his side and he called Williams and he shared the glory with him, his best friend. Without Trick, there’d be no Melo, so before you accuse him—

Williams cuts him off and says that’s what’s so confusing, Hayes’ success has been his success. He heard all the critiques and took all the beatdowns to make sure Melo didn’t miss. Carmelo says it worked and when he won, they won. Trick says exactly, whenever *he* won, and now that Trick has the ball and is taking shots, why can’t Hayes be there the same way he was?!

Or better yet, the question he needs to know, did he— Hayes cuts him off and asks if he believed in him and says yes he did, before the chants, he was there for him. When the NFL didn’t work out, he was there for him, and he knew he was destined for greatness and had the potential to be a once-in-a-lifetime performer.

Williams says he just wants to do his own thing and have his moments and his main events and it’s only fair. Whenever Hayes needed him, he was there, he put his heart and soul into all the fancy entrances, but where is he when Trick needs him? Melo asks if what he’s saying means he didn’t see who attacked him, and Williams says he got hit in the head and the only voice he remembers hearing is Carmelo’s.

He says he only thought his chance at the title was gone, and Hayes asks again if he really didn’t see who attacked him, and Trick gets upset that that’s all he’s concered about and asks him point blank if he attacked him.

Before he can answer, Lexis King makes his entrance.

He says we’ve got quite a paradox here, a friend who was brutally assaulted and his best friend was the first man at the scene of the crime. Melo tells him to shut the hell up and mind his own business, and Trick agrees. King tells them to relax and he’s just trying to help get to the bottom of this, and it seems to him that everybody knows who did it.

It could have been someone else, someone new, someone dark and dirty like you’ve never seen, a mind dark and twisted with thoughts unclean. He asks Williams if he’s sure Carmelo attacked him, Trick tells him to leave, Lexis doubles down, Williams takes a swing but King ducks and he decks Hayes instead!

A frustrated Melo takes a swing as Trick tries to check on him! Williams turns back to his friend and extends a hand, pulls him up, and pulls him in for a hug! Hayes stares angrily at the camera.

That’s the show, folks.
