You deserve it. Clap clap clap clap. You deserve it. Clap clap clap clap. You deserve it. Clap clap clap clap.
It was the night Becky Lynch, and the WWE Universe had craved.
The LassKicker was able to beat long-time best friend turned mortal enemy Charlotte Flair and capture the Smackdown Women’s Title.
In arguably the match of the night (Randy Orton v Jeff Hardy a notable contender), the pair showed great chemistry to ebb and flow through the kind of match that has ignited the women’s division.
Trading signatures and finishers for fun, it was a roll-up reversal of a Charlotte spear that eventually got Lynch the three-count.
A smart way of finishing things, this puts Becky back on top of the tree, and keeps Charlotte strong without her tapping.
Rumours had suggested a double turn with Charlotte going heel, but the in-ring confrontation at the close of the match lead to nothing, as what appeared to be a peace offering was snubbed by Lynch who would not have her moment in the spotlight taken away.
This has plenty of legs left in it, and expect the women-only PPV, Evolution, to be the place for the next chapter.
It has been one of the best story lines in WWE, and the payoff at HIAC wasn’t bad either.
As things got personal between AJ and Joe in recent weeks, the heat going into this was very real.
The match itself was an up and down affair with both men trading offence without ever really captivating the audience, before it ended in controversy.
With a Coquina Clutch locked in, Joe thought he was on for a title win – falling onto his back to lock the hold in further.
AJ was able to roll though and pin Joe’s shoulders down long enough to get the three-count – but only as he was tapping.
This was out of the ref’s sight and AJ was able to hold on to his crown.
A furious Joe would later confront Smackdown general manager Paige who set a no count-out, no DQ match for Super Show-Down
Some highs, some lows, some mehs.
There is something utterly electric about Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker in the same ring together.
We will always have *those* Wrestlemania moments, but last night on RAW we were treated again.
Michaels was on TV for the first time in a while, bigging up the chances of his good buddy Tripple H when he meets Taker at the Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia next month.
Queue gongs, lights out, smoke, and lightning bolts. The Deadman commeth.
Promising to end The Game, like he had with the Heartbreak Kid, Taker was in no mood for pleasantries.
Michaels however was full of praise, saying it was his respect for The Deadman that had kept him to his word when it came to retirement, and halted a return to the WWE.
Not convinced, Taker suggested respect, may well have been fear.
The door is ajar for something to play out with the three men.
This could get good. Very, very good.
