Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Rhea Ripley (WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship)

My lovely wife Josie provides y’all with some entrance commentary here—

Rhea enters in literally a witch cape, reaffirming my homosexuality. Rhea, you can pin me against the wall anytime. There’s this big purple triangle on her pants I’m not a huge fan of. OH it’s a vest on top of a cape. Like a 90’s supervillain illustrated by Sal Buscema in the pages of Spectacular Spider-Man. You know, like Hobgoblin. Or Carrion. Yeah.

Charlotte appears to be wear a gown made of black puffy latex? You know what, I’m here for it. It’s adding bulk to her but not in a bad way. The silhouette is like a dark, badass version of a little plastic Disney Princess. Elsa has been Compleated. She will add your distinctiveness to her own. (But there’s too much tacky bedazzling underneath.)

Collar and elbow, Flair with a side headlock, shot off, shoulder block, Ripley returns the favor and knocks her down! Off the ropes, drop down, hip toss blocked, backflip evasion, short-arm lariat ducked, Charlotte takes her off her feet with a shoulder block and clotheslines her to the floor!

Rhea with shoulder blocks in the corner, Flair snaps off a diving crossbody, Ripley fires elbows back and the Queen clobbes her with kicks in the corner. Rhea turns her around, stomps a mudhole in her, seated senton across her back and a pass into the corner!

Cover for one, smashing Charlotte’s face into the mat before grabbing a bodyscissors! Forearms to the shoulders, turning Flair around to ride her back and grind her face into the mat! A forearm to the kidneys leaves Charlotte in agony, back elbow, but Rhea quickly turns her back around into short-arm lariats.

Big boot, back elbow, Flair gets some separation and the STO backbreaker / reverse STO combination! Charlotte starting in with the chops, hard into the corner, slingshot stomp to the back of the knee and Rhea is screaming agony! Forearm from the apron, smashing her face into the turnbuckles, diving crossbody but Ripley rolls through!

Flair breaks free with elbows but Rhea is on her, pumphandle... RIPTIDE REVERSED INTO A DDT FOR TWO! Charlotte takes a moment to collect herself, spinning toehold blocked with an upkick, take two, same result, small package for two! Stereo big boots and both women are down and out!

Trading forearms from their knees and to their feet, front kick and stomp and a facebreaker from Rhea but Charlotte snaps off a fallaway slam! Headed up top, she wants the moonsault but Ripley tries to cut her off! Knocked back down, take two... GERMAN SUPERPLEX GETS RHEA CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR!

Drawing Flair back to her feet, back suplex, champion lands on her feet, chop block, Natural Selection connects... NOT ENOUGH! Rhea to the floor, Charlotte follows and gets sidestepped into the steel steps! Back inside, Ripley picks her up, back suplex facebuster... STILL NO!

Jawing at Charlotte, handful of hair, pumphandle, Flair floats over, German suplex connects! Rolling German suplexes, Rhea with back elbow, standing switch, overrotated German suplex dumps Charlotte on her face! Waistlock, Flair with back elbows and a big boot, cover for two!

Spinning toehold blocked, Ripley to the apron and the Queen blasts her to the floor with a big boot! Up top... CHARLOTTE FLAIR MOONSAULT TO THE FLOOR! Back inside, spinning toehold countered again, sidestep the spear, referee Jessika Carr barely avoids getting taken down!

Headbutt, pumphandle... CHARLOTTE KICKS OUT OF RIPTIDE! Ripley doesn’t know what to do! Dragging Flair to her feet, smashing her face into the mat, fisherman suplex, no good! Prison Lock applied in the middle of the ring, Charlotte posts up on her hands but she’s got nowhere to go!

Crawling, trying to force the break... SHE GETS THE ROPES! Slinging Rhea into the corner... SHORT SPEAR CAN’T KEEP RIPLEY DOWN! Trading forearms on their knees and to their feet again, Rhea with a buzzsaw roundhouse but Charlotte returns a big boot and finally gets the figure four leglock... BUT RIPLEY GOT HER HANDS ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!

Jockeying for position in the corner, Rhea smashes Flair’s face into the ringpost and she goes limp! Climbing up, pumphandle...

Rhea Ripley wins by pinfall with an avalanche Riptide, becoming your new WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion.

We get a video package for the Intercontinental Championship match tomorrow night.

Byron Saxton interviews Austin Theory.

He says he made John Cena believe tonight.

Miz and Snoop Dogg return to the ring for more hosting duties and the A-Lister announces attendance tonight at 80,497.

Snoop says the only thing that’d be better is if Miz had a match tonight and he says he put out an open challenge and no one responded, because people are scared of him. Everyone in this stadium knows that he’s the toughest man here, because he’s the Miz and he’s awe—


He slides in the ring and gets on the mic and greets Snoop kindly before turning to Miz and saying he thinks he speaks for all of us, being on all the social media, that none of us saw the open challenge he sent. But good news, this is his WrestleMania tank top and he sees nothing but space, opportunity, and magic on the horizon.

If Miz wants a match, why not let him beat his ass right here, right now. (Van Halen’s kicking ass in America?)

Miz takes his jacket off and polls the crowd before saying there’s nothing he’d rather do than whoop Pat right here but he’s just the host and he can’t make matches official. McAfee says his tiny balls are showing to try and goad him into taking the match anyway.

If he can’t make matches official, there’s 80,497 people here and SOMEBODY has to be able to make a match official somewhere, and Snoop says as the Doggfather he can make that match happen right now!

Pat McAfee vs. the Miz

McAfee in with hard right hands, referee Shaun Bennett admonishes hi in the corner! Miz clutching his jaw, he charges in... SPINNING SPINEBUSTER! Pat goes up top to pose for the crowd, goes across, puts Miz up top and calls for it, moonsault evasion, the A-Lister off the top and he runs right into a superkick and rolls to the floor!

Pat lets Bennett count while Miz gets to his feet, coming over to the ropes to goad him about his balls and the A-Lister decides he’s had enough and takes a walk. He shoves a football player in the front row and he jumps the barricade! McAfee keeps Shaun distracted, the football man drops Miz with a lariat!

Football, Jr. cheering him up top, Pat perches on the ringpost... SENTON ATOMICO! They throw him back inside, McAfee lies in wait...

Pat McAfee wins by pinfall with the punt.

We get a hype reel for next year’s WrestleMania, in my home of Philadelphia.

Commentary hypes up tomorrow’s WrestleMania card.
