I think we're gonna have to do that over.
I think we don't have to do that.
Oh, I'll be right back.
It's day one of the 2020 w w e draft Who went where Who stayed, who went? We don't know.
Well, we do know.
I know you might know.
If you don't know, I'll let you know, because I'm really Ray Williams.
You're you, and we're roped in.
I'm so glad it didn't take me 20 or 30 minutes to realize that my microphone I had cut off when it was already on to begin with.
But we're here now.
Thank you for joining me again.
I'm Ray Williams.
I am your two of God through all of the madness that's going on within the world of W W E professional wrestling.
So without further ado, I'm gonna go ahead with the news for the week, and then we're gonna get right into this evening's addition off Friday night Smackdown which featured day one up to 2020 w w e draft.
So let's get to the news of the day or the news of the week rather.
So we had Alberto del Rio, who has been in some trouble in the last year, year and a half.
He's been on and off in trouble, and now it seems like it's gonna be serious business.
It was reported that he has been indicted.
He was originally arrested in May, and he has been indicted now on one count of kidnapping and four counts of ***ual assault.
And that's no good.
Oh, that is already there were things going on with him.
I know a Sfar back as when he had his relationship with Page, and there was some issues between there.
It wasn't It wasn't really made light off as faras their relationship and what was going on.
I know that Page has some issues with, uh, substance and alcohol abuse.
And, you know, there was talks of, like domestic, ah, domestic quarrels between the two back then.
And so then I believe that was the second time that w that, yeah, W W.
Parted ways with Alberto Del Rio.
And then he went on toe impact.
And I believe there was an allegation of ***ual assault on him that kind of resulted in impact cutting ties with him while he was still the world champion there.
So now this just is just a a free fall for Alberto del Rio and man.
It's just Oh, I hope the victim gets peace and hope she's OK.
I really hope that Alberto Del Real changes.
It's ways, man, because this is just Alberta, Alberta than Rio, a k a.
Alberto Patrol, a k a.
Jose Corcoran is his government name.
So, man, it's a tough story to hear about with with With him, it's just It's a shame, man.
It's a shame, and you never know who.
You never know the extent of what's going on in people's minds, especially when you look up to them.
You've been watching them on television, and you just never know where they're going, What's going behind those ears or what's going behind the eyes and what's going on inside the mind of certain people? Man, you think these guys are terrific, they have it all.
But you know, there's just some issues that our deep seated and deeper with people so mhm we'll see how this plays out, Ah, later on in the future.
So that was the first set of News second set of news Samantha Tavel, aka a candy card, right? She was the woman who accused Matt Riddle of ***ual assault.
She claims ***ual assault.
He claims consensual relationship or consensual fling.
So now she's going after him in a civil lawsuit, going after not only him but W W E evolved the feet of promotion for W W E and evolves co president Gabe Sapolsky.
Each of them she's seeking $10 million in damages.
Oh, and that's the thing.
You just hope that with everything that's been going on with the speaking out movement, you just want the truth you want, true from all sides, whatever happens.
And, of course, you're going believe the accuser but believe that she is true to herself and she's telling her truth.
And you're also going believe at the town.
You'll believe the accused and you believe their truth.
And then the evidence comes together and you just gotta wait to see on what happens with the evidence and like the situation going on with velveteen dream, I, uh, it's just too much evidence.
But with the thing with Matt, Riddle has just been back and forth between both parties between Tavel our table and brittle, and it is just there hasn't been any concrete evidence either way.
So this one is kind of on the fence on, and it was kind of it was kind of perplexing during Summer Slam when they were actually making light of this situation doing summer Sam when they were talking about how Baron Corbyn, who was wrestling against Matt Riddle, he was making jokes on Twitter about this situation where he's talking about, I'm gonna prove you're not only a failure in the ring or your failure, not only to your family, but I'm gonna prove that you're a failure in the ring.
And I was like, Oh, that is not I don't even think this thing is over with And sure enough, it's not over with And yet they were making kind of they were making light of the situation, so I don't know what's gonna happen or go down with that.
But hopefully the truth does come to light.
Evidence is revealed, and it can either be parted one way or another way.
Now, whether or not if table is able to prove something within the civil court, whether or not she can use that Teoh look for or seek criminal charges is a different story.
But we just have to wait to see how this civil case plays out.
Moving on Rich Holland.
So he attacked out of coal.
Adam Cole, then on Wednesday said that Rich Holland would be a quote dead man.
And now Rich Holland is out.
Nothing to do with under speeded era.
And it is not k fake.
It is not storyline injury.
He actually got hurt.
Uh, this was following his match against Danny Birch on Wednesday night on an X T.
Uh, he was kind of attacking Danny Birch after the bell.
And then Danny Birches taxing partner.
Only Larkin came in, tried to save him.
Um, Rich Hollande laid out Larkin a little bit.
Then he tried to get out the ring locking came through and tried to hit.
I believe it was a cross body and Ridge Holland planning this foot a certain way.
And all the weight from Larkin came down upon, came down upon Holland and Holland still had its foot planet.
And the prognosis is not good.
Dislocated ankle and a ruptured patella tendon so that that means he's going to be out for a while.
So I guess Adam cold kind of got a blister.
No, no, don't play about.
I just wish him a speedy recovery.
The brother just got the next TV from NXT.
He just got here.
Man is just how things play out, man.
I just wish him nothing but the best former rugby player or Australian rules football player or whatever they call them back.
E think it's rugby, but I wish him all the best and wish him a speedy recovery and a full recovery.
Some people, they wish you a speedy recovery.
It could be speedy, but it's not full.
And then you hurt yourself again.
So I wish Rich Holland a full and speedy recovery, and I think I don't want to dimension What's Indo? Oh, and with other legit injury news.
Of course, if you've been watching an x t, you saw that over the weekend during NSC take over 31 that during that amazing, tremendous epic fight fight, it was a fight beat between Carlo Rally and Fin Balor Fin Balor that is jaw broken in two places.
So he's gonna be out while.
And I think I just I love to see this edge with Fin Balor now and now he's gonna have even Mawr edge just he's out to fight, man.
It's like now it is more than just sneaking in insider tips of sneaking in entire insider terms for the smart marks.
You know now it's just gonna be He's a champion, He's a fighting champion and he's a brutal champion, like he he won't hesitate to kick you in the ribs and the liver and just beat the snot out.
You he won't care if you beat him to a pulp.
He's gonna come back even harder, and he's going to try to put you away with all he has.
So it's gonna be interesting.
And what is this thing with all the next T champions or not all in the next three champions? But I want to say the recent NFC champions with carrying cross and Finn bowel er now our champions getting injured, it looks like Finn Baller is going to be back.
And, no, it's not a Drew McIntyre broken jaw.
It's an actual broken Joe like Drew McIntyre.
He was playing around Oh, my job.
I was about to say something I shouldn't, but stop lying.
Bam! You know you're drawing broken.
First they tried to say it was a skull fracture.
It's a career threatening injury, is a skull fracture.
And then it turned out to be a draw, a hairline fracture.
But fin Balor get that riel jaw fracture.
But hopefully it's not expected that he's going to be out for a long assed carrying cross is going to be out carrying Cross had like a thorn a c l to r m c o or No, he had a thorn.
He had a dislocated shoulder, I believe.
Yes, not the legs, but his shoulder was jacked up, so he's going to be out for a long while.
But looks like Fin Balor is pretty much gonna be out for a few.
Hopefully about a month or so, maybe a few weeks or months.
And with nxc, that's not too bad, because at least with nxc, you only get to take over shows every once in a while, Maybe once every two or three months.
So it's not too, is not to foreign toe.
Have your champs it out and then just have the tender ships, you know, play themselves out.
Let the chips fall where they may.
And once he gets back, you have yourself already made.
Few already made Contender for the title, so we'll see what happens.
Speedy and full recovery wishes for Fin Balor or a k a.
I just love that smile.
He doesn't ever people.
He looks so crazy, but he hasn't been doing that smile recently.
But every time he in the pictures, he's so happy.
He's so happy, all right.
And the last piece of last piece of news and this is we're gonna end on a good note.
You know, all that other stuff was kind of on bit of a down note, but going on a good note with y two J Chris Jericho having his 30th anniversary on or Wednesday night, Wednesday night, Dynamite for A W.
And I know I said, I won't go into a W N detail, but I just wanted to mention this because Chris Jericho was a legend.
It writes itself.
The history writes itself you could see all the things that he's done, all the things that he's accomplished, and it's just amazing to see.
It's been 30 years now.
I can separate the wrestler Chris Jericho from the person Chris Jericho, because person Chris Jericho, you know you shouldn't be going to know Sturgis with, like 10,000 people with no mask on.
Come on, beat, Get it together.
But rest legit, Chris Jericho.
You're a legend pre and congratulations on your 30th anniversary.
Now I've been trying to rack my brain over what my favorite Chris Jericho matches.
I don't know, man.
It's just there's been so many, Um, I want to say the first thing that comes into my mind is the tag.
The tag TLC manage the only TLC match ever to be aired on national television on broadcast television, which was the TLC match.
I believe it was Ah, four team, eight man TLC tag match between the Dudley Boys engine, Christian Hardy Boys and the Canadian Chris is, as I like to refer to him with Jericho and who's a Benoit, Uh, but that was and I think I think it was more for the spectacle of the match, just like, Oh, this is crazy.
I think that's one of my personally that might be my favorite.
That might be my favorite TLC match.
And I know the one that Russell mania with EJ spearing Jeff Hardy.
That's up there.
I think that's number two for me.
But I think this Smackdown TLC is number one.
It's just like Oh my God.
And then they had my my former favorite wrestler ever husband.
Aw, yeah, but I think that's the big one that comes to mind.
I know it's a bunch of memories from his career that come to mind as well.
Um, I think I was watching live when he was when he should.
He should have one, and this was before he became the before he became the undisputed champion.
He should have one.
The W W championship against Triple H Dog on Triple Age got all up in the URL Heppner's face and told him to reverse the decision.
I remember that night very clearly.
I was watching that I was mad.
Um, but yeah, man, that's one memory that comes out.
Another memory, maybe not to Fonda memory is, uh, him having a few week C M punk and him doing the whole C M punk.
You're going to start drinking once I get through with you and once I take your belt from you and that was a little mhm.
It's kind of like what they were doing with Jeff Hardy not too long ago with the whole addiction thing.
But it was like an opposite thing is like with C M punk.
They were trying to tell the story that seeing punks c.
M punk's father would be and I believe, is a true story because he's told this on, uh, it's best in the world DVD.
How his biological father with Beatem, he would get drunk and he was an alcoholic and he would beat on pump.
So they kind of tried to tell their that story to this program between Chris Jericho and seeing punk.
And this was when Chris Jericho had just came back.
I believe he had been gone for a few years, maybe, like fine use this time.
Yeah, he would be gone for a while.
And so he had just came back and he was trying, you know, Chris Jericho He's always trying to reinvent himself.
But then, and this is sparkly jacket.
We had the advent of the sparkly jacket, but then he turned heel and he tried Thio get C M punk to drink.
It was like I'm gonna make you do the thing that you swore to never do, so that was weird.
That's one thing that stands out of mine.
But again, Chris Jericho is always looking to reinvent himself.
He's always looking the to push the bar, and even with him getting older and older, he never fails to.
In event, you know what I'm saying? He never fails to make changes and switch up things.
For example, there was a big knock that they had on the W W.
E with John Sina.
It's like have John Sina B'more than just this baby face Superman all the time, like give them some different dimensions to his character.
And I believe that's why people love watching Jay so much because y two J is so multifaceted and he has so many different dimensions to himself.
Um, and even if you just consider, if he's just a bad guy, it's so many iterations of him being a bad guy.
It's not just one cookie cutter way to be a bad guy.
He's had, like, five different generations of being a bad guy.
He's had the white to J stuff.
He's had the the it lists.
I believe that is what it is or the list.
He's had that generation of himself with the stupid idiots.
And he's had the Alfa versus the Omega when he went toe new Japan.
And now he's continuing that with the inner circle brand and let champion on.
So he said, and not to forget his runs in WCW Oh, and the slow talking Jericho that through through Shane or not Shame but Shawn Michaels face through a television monitor.
So are the Jerry Tron 2000.
I believe it was referred to us, so just seeing so many different dimensions and that that's just again, that's just him.
He's had so many different.
So now, even him being a good guy like I mentioned before where he was fighting against he was fighting is pretty much the authority, the authority, the beta version of the authority Back then, where you had Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
And you had that that dynamic.
And he was fighting against that.
So, yeah, I mean, it's just it's just man.
30 years passed by pretty fast, like I've been watching them for a good 20 of those years.
So get more than that about a good 22.
So I just We're from all the best again, hopefully gets himself together with making these concerts and stuff.
Stop putting people at risk.
But that's neither here nor thing.
Let's get up in this draft, shall we? Okay, so I'm just going to mention the stuff that came out.
And I don't want this video to be any longer than 45 minutes.
I'm trying to get it under 30 and I've been rambling for about 25 now, so let's see if I could get through all the sweat down in five minutes.
So first I want to start off with the draft.
We're just gonna run through all the rounds of the draft that occurred.
So first round raw GATT.
Drew McIntyre, Oscar and her business.
Their Smackdown got Roman reigns.
No change there.
But Seth Rollins, and that's going to be very, very key acquisition when I mentioned Who else has come to smack down So Rollins and raise the shield? Can we see? A I wonder whatever happened to that other guy? What happened to Dean Ambrose? Hmm? I wonder if Onley he can come back.
Oh, well, So second round, we got raw drafting A J Styles.
That's a change she's going back to raw, and that's kinda weird.
I'll talk more about that once I finished Naomi.
That's a change, and Nyah Jacks and Bassler Shana Bassler are staying on Raw A J.
Styles and Naomi are switching over to Rome and Smackdown! Shasha Banks is staying.
Bianka Bell Air is coming, so that's going to be a good That's gonna be a good acquisition, right? Third round, we got Ricochet.
Staying with raw along with Mandy Rose and then being traded or being acquired is the myths and John Morrison on raw third round for a Smackdown.
Russo and both Ray and Dominic Mysterio, so we're going to continue going to continue that feud between the Mysterio family and Seth Rollins.
Whether or not Buddy Murphy is going to come over The Smackdown is yet to be seen because we still have 30 superstars that are up for the draft on Monday.
So we'll see, including the Smackdown women's champion family.
So that's weird that they didn't make that decision like they kept Oscar.
But Smackdown couldn't keep barely on the same night.
I don't understand, but anyway, continue to move.
So we have Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston going to raw along with Dana Brooke, who's staying, and Angel Garza who stain.
Now Here's the interesting, too.
Woods in Kingston just won the Smackdown tag team championships and I'll go ahead and spoil that now over Cesaro and Shunsuke Nakamura.
First off, I hope Cesaro gets a decent singles pushed Now.
Come on now, put him in singles.
Put him in that either inter Continental or United States Championship put put him in the mid car fighting for those belts and work his way up.
Man, he deserves it.
Come on, be alright.
Um but Biggie is thing going.
Smackdown and biggie! Earlier in the night one a brutal falls count anywhere match against Schamus.
They just beat the living snot out of each other.
Shame is just poured a bunch of eggs on top of biggie.
I guess the e stands for egg.
No, but man, they just beat the Tar Nations out of one another.
Then he hit him with the Irish curse backbreaker.
Or was Celtic Cross? He hit him with the Celtic cross on top of the car again, but couldn't get the pen.
And then it was just blood and flour and dog on shame, his back looking red.
He just looked like a candy cane because he got beat down with a kendo stick earlier in the match.
These guys were just brutalizing each other, and then all ended with Biggie.
Given the big ending to shame is through a table in the parking lot to get the 123 So I think they're just gonna try to continue his his run trying to get him going for either a mid card or who knows After Helena, cell Roman reigns.
Might need some some fresh meat, some fresh competition, some fresh meat.
Biggie big media maker.
Uh, so yeah, Biggie's gonna stand smacked out.
Kofi and Xavier are going to wrong So that means for right now a new day is separated, not broken up now broken up, separated.
And Otis is going to stay on Smackdown! All right, so run through.
Like I said, Biggie.
Picking up a big win biggie for the big win over.
Hopefully that that is done, Hopefully.
Then we got announcement.
So Jason came out trying to confront Roman Romans that some ritzy hotel somewhere with Paul Haman and so Roman declares that their match will in fact, be in the hell on themselves.
And for the first time in the history of the Helen themselves match Will and I quit match be contested within the confines of a cell.
So beat him, make him say I quit.
And then he's gonna make him say, Oh, no.
Bacon said, Oh! Oh, hell, The chief.
Uh, but yet he's gone.
And then again, with these consequences, what are the consequences? Is gonna say If you lose, then you can no longer be in a tag team if you lose your retire.
If you lose, you cut your hair.
If you lose your no longer Samoan, what are the consequences, Roman please let us know We got, like about two weeks from now or two weeks from Sunday.
So hopefully next week will get more clarity on what the's consequences off on.
Speaking of next week.
Next week on Smackdown is going to be the season premiere with all the new acquisitions in all the returning Smackdown talent, it will also be a one on one match.
Bron Stroman finally getting a chance of one on one chance to get his universal title back against Roman reigns next week.
So that has been announced, all right, continuing on with gone past 30.
But again, make sure I could get this under 45.
It will be under 45.
So Mr Morrison went against Riddle and Hardy a little harder one.
What I do care about is what happened after so large Sullivan returned.
Laura Sullivan is back.
If you're not familiar with Laura Sullivan, he was made out to be like this big beast of a man.
Ah, couple of years ago, on an X T.
He was supposed to be like the big monster.
He's supposed Thio come into the footsteps off a bronze Stroman off Brock Lessner off a big show where he's just coming through just terrorizing folks.
It's just again another big, meaty man slapping me just strong folks on.
I believe the last we saw him, he was on the main roster and he pretty much beat the entire trio of the lucha House party by himself.
So they were just trying Put the Rockets strap on them, you know, take him all the way to the top.
Your rise to the top.
They were trying to push him to the moon, baby, to quote my man Cameron Grass, Um, but he ended up getting hurt.
He ended up suffering a severe knee knee injury that put him out for about more than a year.
They say he suffered the injury in June, so he's been out for more than a year.
Not to mention the fact that, huh When you talk about when it rains, it pours so he gets hurt.
And then it comes out that against years ago, you know that time traveling Twitter beat time traveling Twitter or Tom traveling social media.
In this case it was time traveling. Read it.
They went back and saw that this Obama posted, like some racist stuff, some home Ophelia stuff or not home feel about ****phobic stuff, ***ist stuff, misogynist stuff on this.
I believe it was a weight lifting magazine or, ah, weightlifting thread.
I don't know, a weight lifting website.
They just put all his posts out to drive.
And then it was also revealed that before he even started wrestling that he was a former adult film star, which is you've ever be good.
Well, I mean, do you, brother, if it's consensual, you know you got ends to meet, do you? I guess I don't know.
And then it was also revealed that before his first match on the main roster, that he had himself a panic attack, which Oh, I just feel for the brother.
Hopefully, he's got it all together now.
You know what I'm saying? Looking rugged, going out there, wrecking folks.
He went out there and wrecked.
Uh, Matt Hardy and Matt Riddle or Jeff Hardy and Matt Rooms don't go Mets, but yeah, Matt Riddle and Jeff Hardy.
He just wrecked them.
And then men's tried to escape, but he couldn't escape the raft of Laura Sullivan, Lawrence servant Just bouncing around and beating him with these.
The dog going, uh, cross face blows across the head and neck is just brutal.
He's just working, folks.
So our Sullivan is back, and Stephanie McMahon mentioned that he will be eligible for the draft during day two on Monday, so we'll see what happens with that.
Speaking of the miss, it was, it was revealed that Miss is going to have a continuance off his court battle with Otis.
So yeah, we get another week of a court battle for the money in the bank briefcase? Yeah.
I was waiting for this thing to be over with, ma'am, just if you go on, give them the case, or if you're gonna have them win the case, like, get on the case already, But stretching this garbage out? Yeah, the And they also mentioned that again, oldest is staying on Smackdown.
They did not mention whether or not Tucker will be able to stay on Smackdown.
That will be revealed because he is also part of the pool for the draft on Monday Data so continuing on again Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods come right back, make their first appearance for months, especially for Woods.
It's been, I want to say more than happy.
It's been like eight months since he's been on TV.
But those two defeated Nakamura and Cesaro to pick up the Smackdown tag team championships, which is weird because they're being drafted to raw now, so that most likely going to bring over the street profits to Smackdown.
And that would be interesting to see, because the street profits already had kind of a rivalry going on with Malcolm Morris Azzaro.
So they'll probably keep knocking and switch together.
Thio head against the street profits for the newly christened Smackdown championships.
Okay, I did want to mention I didn't mention before that Also, shows are not those of, but the mysterious and Rollins are both on the same show.
I didn't mention that a J Styles.
I wanted to mention that.
So now it just looks like a game of hot potato with a J styles, I guess wherever Paul Haman goes, A J.
Styles wants to be in the opposite direction because he's just been talking, talking, talking, I believe on his Twitch channel.
He's just been like Hey, Paul, Hate, hate, hate his guts or, if not hate, a strong dislike.
And so now that Roman reigns is staying on Smackdown! I'm pretty sure a g styles in the upper management's ear saying, Hey, get me out.
I don't want You know how I feel about him? Don't leave me here with him, please.
So he shut off the raw again, even though it's only been like five months since he was traded to Smackdown.
So who the draft, baby? Very consistent.
All right, Um, the last thing on the night was the fiend versus Kevin Owens and a hard hitting match.
Neither man has been selected within the draft pool yet, so they will both be on Monday's edition of the draft.
So we see we'll see where they may be.
Theme comes to raw.
That'll be good.
That'll me some good competition for Drew McIntyre.
If Drew McIntyre Burger is able to get past Randy Orton and Helena sell, it would be so pretty good competition.
If you bring, bring the feet going over and you've got Alexa Bliss Now who's as people have been saying, She's her Harlequin, too.
The fiends Joker so and I want to see.
I want to see where this goes with.
I wanna I really want to see where this goes with Alexa Bliss.
If you go on the raw, don't ruin it raw.
Don't do it Because Smackdown has just been They've been putting the pieces together.
They've been getting together the puzzle, and they've just been putting the pieces right together.
So please don't going wrong and be like, Who cares about a puzzle? Let's play Jack in a box like no, keep putting the pieces together.
Okay, That's what I like to see.
And that is all I have.
So that was your evening Smackdown again.
Next week it's going to be the season premiere Smackdown! With the headliner being Roman reigns defending his universal heavyweight championship against Bron Strommen.
Who again? That he that man will also be a part of the draft pool for Monday.
So we don't even know if Ron Stroman is going to be a Smackdown.
Who are we kidding? He's gonna be on.
He's gonna remain on Specter.
Um yeah, he's gonna stay on Smackdown! Even if he doesn't stay on smacked out.
He's not winning the belt.
So is how the mighty have fallen being how the mighty have following.
He was at the top of the world at WrestleMania, and now he's just a bold man looking for a fight in the bowels of the Amway Center.
What happened to roll on the ground? You know? I don't know.
I'll fight anybody. Unsanctioned.
What's that? I don't know.
Okay, you counted me up.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
I hope you get yourself back together.
Hopefully, you get back on the horse.
I would love to see you back in the main event picture, but that is all I have.
We're cutting it close, man.
We got about a minute, 20 seconds before 45 minutes.
Hopefully I could get thes shorter again.
I wanna make them into 30 minute blurs, you know, So make it easier for you guys to digest.
You know, I don't want you guys hanging around for longer than you need. Thio.
You guys have things to do.
I know is this is this thing basketball and it's the final something I don't know but yeah, I know.
You gotta get on onto that.
So I appreciate you sticking around and watching with me.
Your patronage is always appreciate it.
I appreciate it.
So my social media handles will be at the end of the video.
I would appreciate it if you give your boy and follow on.
Maybe we could talk some pro wrestling.
Maybe we could talk to Member May.
It's a big mm. A car coming up tomorrow.
And who knows? I might have myself a fenced in post show recap coming on after that.
So if you're a big M M A fans stick around for that tomorrow evening as well.
So that being said, thank you so very, very much for tuning in.
God bless you, cop Keep you until next time.
