*Prince Devitt def. Leo Kruger to retain the NWA Heavyweight Championship

*Erick Rowan beat Jimmy Uso with a chokeslam and Jey Uso beat Bray Wyatt with a super kick. A 2/3 falls stipulation was announced for their rematch at BATB.

*Eddie Edwards evaded the returning Low-Ki, hitting him with a Die Hard Driver to retain the Cruiserweight title.

*Chris Jericho is back to the blue brand, to address Wyatt's sudden epiphany:

"For the first time in a long time, Y2J is back on SmackDown. Being in this ring in front of the thousands of Jerichoholics here tonight and the millions watching at home.. it feels good! I've been on a bit of a break recently, since I beat Zayn at Wrestlemania. I was looking for direction on RAW. Where does this old guy with all the talent left in the tank fit in? Then.. along came a spider. A big, dark, venomous spider and his family. And I know since I've been gone that Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family has become one of the most dominant forces in recent history. The thought of them surrounding me in the ring, with a three-on-one advantage, it terrified me. The Usos helped me avoid that certain fate for one night. But the thought has stuck and it will until I meet Bray Wyatt and his family in the ring. Because of that, I have one thing to say to The Wyatt Family and that's this - thank you. I wanna thank you, Wyatts, for reminding me that the WWE isn't all about lighted jackets and music and surprise entrances and 'Y2J' chants... the WWE is about survival as well. And this ring is a dangerous place.

Guess what, Wyatts. I can be a little dangerous. Because you've never worked with someone like me. I don't look anybody else, I don't think like anybody else, I don't act like anybody else, and as a result that's one of the reasons why I'm the best in the world at what I do! So Wyatts, you can come to the ring and light a torch, you can rock in a chair, you can sing a song, you can do whatever you wanna do but if you wanna get crazy, I can get a little crazy. If you wanna get nuts, I can get nuts. If you wanna get crazy, I'll get crazy with you but when I do you will never.. evvveeer.. be the same again!
"



That brought out Luke Harper, who directly challenged the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla. A big boot and discus clothesline wore down Jericho, but he had the energy to break out a Codebreaker. A big splash and a Boss Man slam through a table finished off the rock star. The Eater of Worlds merely grabbed the head of the fallen Jericho and laugh while his followers eerily stood above him.



"HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD.. IN HIS HANDS.. HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD.. IN HIS HANDS.. He's got the whole world in his haaandsss. Aren't you the real savior, Chris Jericho? Save yourself at the Bash, Chris!"

*C.M. Punk and Ryback battled with their PPV opponents in the tag main-event. World champion Damien Sandow and United States title #1 contender Curtis Axel looked easily overmatched but their in-ring intelligence helped ease that disadvantage. The Big Guy was strong from the get-go, crunching Axel's jaw with an Over the Shoulder Boulder Holder. The brawl spilled to the outside while Punk and Sandow clashed inside. Ric Flair did not get involved, although Ted DiBiase Jr. did make his presence felt, distracting Punk and therefore allowing Sandow to ambush him from behind. He then broke up a pin after a Shell Shock. "The Axe Man" connected on a Perfectplex to Ryback, who kicked out at one. He was hoisted into a torture rack but DiBiase helped him escape. Axel tagged in Sandow, who took dropkicks and the vintage swinging neckbreaker from Punk. The Best in the World sent the champion back to his corner with a Go to Sleep. He and Ryback got the win on the go-home show via a superplex from the top rope by Punk to Axel.



DiBiase's interference could not be mere coincidence, we've seen this before. For now, we'll just assume he was there because he's also facing Ryback on Sunday..

Iwakuma shellacked as M's settle for split

Seattle - It was not a good day at the office for Hisashi Iwakuma. The Minnesota Twins clubbed 10 hits off the Mariner starter, and chased him before he could get an out in the 5th with 8 runs off of him, as the Twins beat the Mariners 8-3 to earn a series split. Trevor Plouffe did most of the damage for the Twins with 5 RBI including a three-run homer in the first the set the tone for the beat down that was to insue. The Mariners now regroup for a giant series before the break with the Oakland A's. It will be Tom Millone (0-0, 0.00 ERA) making his first start of the season for Oakland matching up with Chris Young (6-6, 3.21 ERA) in the opener.

*Jay Lethal upset Intercontinental title holder Alberto Del Rio in a non-title bout. Lethal hailed the king with an elbow through the announce table but only drew a nearfall. Del Rio struck back with an enziguri only to take a Lethal Injection neckbreaker. "El Patron" wrenched the arm and locked in the cross armbreaker, but Jay did not give in. He stomped on the body part and got him in an armbar. ADR padded on the offense with a flashy moonsault. Black Machismo had some fire in him, dropping his opponent on a Lethal Combination. He kept on the champ with a double chop, dropkick, and a flying clothesline in a row. A second Lethal Injection - the cutter version - sealed the win.

*Ryback and Jack Swagger had the odds stacked against them in a two-on-three against Antonio Cesaro, Curtis Axel, and Ted DiBiase Jr. Early on, the Big Guy superplexed former partner Axel and DiBiase planted Swagger with a Dream Street. The US champion cleaned Ted's clock on a backpack stunner and dropped him via the Jackhammer. Cesaro stepped in and powerbombed the 291-pound powerhouse. Swagger tagged in after a double team but ultimately lost due to a Michinoku driver and a gutwrench suplex.

*The two-member Shield lost again, having faced Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns of Evolution. Ambrose countered a running Rhodes into a spinning side slam to kickstart his team. Reigns joined the action and snapped Dean's back with a powerbomb lungblower. Rollins turned it around on a running single-leg dropkick and a backbreaker-neckbreaker combo. Roman went a clubberin' on his former teammate and finished it with a Superman punch. The Shield teamed up for a headlock and double stomp. That fueled the Lunatic Fringe, who became bothered by the presence of Cody on the apron and knocked him off. He spun right into a spear from Reigns, which got the 3 count.

*Chris Jericho refused to give words to Bray Wyatt until Smackdown, but he did agree to be the tag partner of the Usos in a 6-man match with the Wyatt Family. It was the typical fare until a Samoan drop and super kick to Rowan won it for the good guys.

*NextGen and Evolution went a second round after Del Rio and Lethal earlier. They paired up with Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, respectively, for a main-event tag match. Orton and Del Rio landed the first finishers - an RKO to Bryan and a German suplex to Lethal. The WWE Undisputed champion rebounded with the turnbuckle flip into a running crooked clothesline. A springboard dropkick and cutter from Lethal while Bryan had Orton at bay secured the W for his team.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

It looks like it's (finally) time for the sea change in the AL East that people have been predicting for years now. Boston, the reigning champions, don't look like they have the bats to win the division again. The Yankees look terrible, but they are loaded with young talent, and a few teams with promise should take the division this year.

AL EAST (PROJECTED FINISH)

#1 Toronto Blue Jays (92-70) : Fans and experts have been picking the Blue Jays year after year only to see them fail. This could be the year, no really, they look like they have a balanced team and they certainly have the pitching to keep up with Boston's rotation. Marcus Stroman could make 'the leap' and be a Cy Young winner, and having Jordan Zimmerman and Yovani Gallardo backing him up won't hurt. Jose Reyes continues to be one of the best SS in baseball, and Edwin Encarnacion gives them some serious power. The loss of Jose Bautista hurts, but Brett Lawrie is finally realizing his potential. The five deep rotation should keep them in games, and the offense should push them to a division title.


#2 Tampa Bay Rays (88-74) : The Rays aren't a great team, but in their park with their rotation they will continue to be good. They always seem to outperform their talent levels thanks to defense, but it's going to take a lot more to top the division. David Price, Matt Moore, Jeremy Hellickson, and Alex Cobb make up one of the best rotations in baseball, but it's still the third best in the AL East. The core of this team is still very young with Evan Longoria and Wil Myers looking like perennial All-Stars, but can the rest of the cast do enough to get them to October?


#3 Boston Red Sox (81-81) : The Red Sox look more like a small ball team this year and could struggle to score on a regular basis. People said the same thing last year and they lit the league on fire after August, but with so many experienced hitters leaving via free agency and defense-first rookies taking their place it's hard to see them doing that again. The rotation and the bullpen, especially the bullpen, could be the best in baseball. Hitters are going to see a lot of hard throwing pitchers on the mound for Boston which should help them hold on to the title of the best defense in baseball. What Boston lost in power it seems to have made up with speed speed speed. Look for the Red Sox to steal bases whenever a free bag is open and don't be surprised if they lead the majors in SB. If Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Blake Swihart, and rookie Rico Berroa don't improve a .500 record is reasonable, but if they take a big step forward the Blue Jays might not be so secure at the top.


#4 Baltimore Orioles (78-84) : The Orioles were basically felled by free agency, losing slugger Chris Davis to Texas and Matt Wieters to Houston, and they are getting left behind in a tough division. Adam Jones and future All-World 3B Manny Machado are still elite players, but the same guys they Orioles were trotting out in 2012 are still filling starting roles and they aren't getting any younger. Nick Markakis, JJ Hardy, Ubaldo Jimenez, Miguel Gonzalez, and Jim Johnson are propping up Jones and Machado... or is it the other way around? Jered Weaver continues to quietly be very good, but he isn't getting any younger either. Baltimore is approaching a serious rebuild or risk falling to the bottom of the AL.


#5 New York Yankees (70-92) : It's hard to believe the Yankees are this bad, with experts picking them to finish 26th in baseball, but unlike the Orioles they may have a brighter future. Like previous years, this team is very old and weighed down by bad contracts. Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran are ancient, and Andre Ethier is just kinda playing out his contract. Brett Gardner is still a very good outfielder, but he's getting on in years as well. Luckily for the Yankees they have two future superstars, with one already achieving that status. Masahiro Tanaka is approaching his peak, and a trade with the Cubs last year landed SS Javier Baez. Once the Yankees get out from under their bad contracts they should be heavy hitters in free agency again and build through that draft and around Baez.

Mariner pitching nets M's win number 50 on the season

Seattle - For the first time in years, the Seattle Mariners reached the 50 win plateau before the all-star break, and kept pace in the division, and wild card races with a 2-1 victory Wednesday night. Felix Hernandez was shaky, but was able to dance his way thru 6.1 innings only giving up one run, the bullpen came on in the 7th and shut down a Twin rally that started with a lead off double, and ended up with the bases loaded before Charlie Furbush got Oswaldo Arcia to fly out to end the threat. Fernando Rodney took care of the rest with his 28th save of the season in the 9th. The Mariners will look for a 3-1 series win tomorrow night when the Twins send Scott Feldman (5-8, 4.34 ERA) to the mound to take on Hisashi Iwakuma (7-6, 3.21 ERA).

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)


FORT MYERS, FL - A very different Red Sox team showed up at Spring Training this year. After bashing their way to a third championship, this team looks like a defensive dynamo. Everyone knows about the pitching staff, which should remain excellent, but alot of power left town in favor of flashy defense. There are also alot of youg faces this spring, with a lot of minor league players getting non-roster invites to try and make the majors. Another change for Boston will be more emphasis on platoons, mainly at DH, which will hopefully replace the offensive that left via retirement or free agency.



Can Farrell win a fourth?

SPRING TRAINING (By The Numbers)

Boston Red Sox 16-15 (4th AL East)

Hot Hitters

Chris Owings - 3HR 6RBI .292
Will Middlebrooks - 6HR 10RBI .286

Cold Hitters

Dustin Pedroia - 2HR 17RBI .257
Xander Bogaerts - 5RBI .238
Matt Adams - 3HR 12RBI .221

TOP 50 PROSPECTS



Koufax is looking like the real deal.

1B Issac Koufax (AAA Pawtucket)
LHP Trey Ball (AAA Pawtucket)
LHP Brett Gilchrist (AA Portland)
CF Pedro Santana (AAA Pawtucket)

SPRING ANSWERS

Who's On Third? : It took all of five minutes for everyone to see what the plan was going to be in Spring Training. Chris Owings and Garin Cecchini weren't going to accomplish much more in AAA, but finding a place for them would be difficult. Luckily, the departure of Mike Napoli allowed Middlebrooks to move to 1B duty and open up the hot corner. Owings has played well enough at AAA and during the spring to earn a chance at SS with Bogaerts moving over to third, a position Owings cannot play. This leaves Cecchini as the backup 3B, with Bogaerts making a move to SS and Owings backing up Pedroia at 2B. Cecchini was also seen playing a few innings in the outfield, so he may have a shot and becoming a back up LF option as well. Boston will open the season with a Bogaerts-Owings-Pedroia-Middlebrooks infield, an elite defensive look that should help cover up their problems elsewhere.

Outfield Starters : Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts have CF and LF locked up, but the surprise comes in RF with Shane Victorino leaving town. Garin Cecchini looked like he might play LF and Betts would move to RF, but Rico Berroa snatched it away from him. Berroa has the speed and instinct to be a gold-glove RF, but his bat could get him sent back down to AAA for another season.

The Closer : After destroying everything from the Rookie to AA leagues Leonys Bravo hit a roadblock after his promotion to AAA. He was stunning for the first few innings, but seemed to run out of gas (and he has alot of it, hitting 100MPH regularly) as games went on. He seemed to be two different pitchers, but John Farrell seems to think he has use for the "good" Bravo as Boston's new closer. Bravo came in with a number of other prospects just looking to make the team, but he made MLB veterans look so bad with his powerful fastball-circle change combo that Farrell had to give him a shot. Rubby De La Rosa did his best to win the job, eventually being tabbed as the set-up man, if Bravo fails De La Rosa will be right there to take over.

SUMMER QUESTIONS

Outfield Depth (Again) : The starting outfielders have a total of three years of experience between them, and their backups have zero experience. Rico Berroa might be an incredible defender, but if he hits his way out of a job they will be stuck with Cecchini in the outfield. Nelson Cruz, despite being an outfielder, will be used as a platoon DH against lefty pitching. Nobody expects Bradley Jr. to repeat the incredible numbers he put up in 2015, so this outfield could be the weakest part of the team again. If any of the starters go down with an injury look for Boston to sign a free agent or make a panic call-up from AAA or even AA.

3-5 Starters : After enjoying a 1-2-3 punch at the top of the rotation in 2015, it's going to be rough after Archer and Miller. Workman and Barnes were decent in 2015, but Barnes has been moved to the pen in favor of lefty Henry Owens, and Anthony Ranaudo moves from the pen to the rotation. The bullpen is deep but inexperienced, so there really isn't anyone who would be much better than Ranaudo. Braden Shipley is still in the majors, and if he pitches well he could be an option along with Henry Owens. Once the service-date deadline passes we will see who Boston calls up.

Experience Drain : Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino, Clay Buchholz, and David Ortiz are all gone and being replaced by rookies or guys with only a few years of experience. The experiment with Middlebrooks at first might be a disaster, the Adams-Cruz DH platoon probably can't replace Napoli, all of the rookies are bound to struggle. This team isn't really built to win a World Series, but whether they are a .500 team or a Bottom 10 team is unknown.

The final proving ground has come for RAW's top superstars before Bash at the Beach, our next PPV. Will it be Cody Rhodes or Roman Reigns, Triple H's new Evolution recruits? Maybe Seth Rollins or Dean Ambrose, who are focused on vengeance but might not be able to resist the allure of a championship title match? Or will the COO go back to ole' reliable Randy Orton, who dropped the belt at Wrestlemania? Intercontinental champ Alberto Del Rio or Bryan's allies - Jay Lethal, Dolph Ziggler, and Austin Aries - also figure to have a shot.

*The Miz opened the show, raving about his worldwide travels and how many autographs from the variety fans he's had to sign lately. No WWE talent has the international appeal and popularity as he does, and he has taken the European championship to new heights. "The Bad Guy" Razor Ramon made a special appearance, throwing a toothpick into his face. The Hollywood "star" has no real machismo, said Razor. Miz took offense to that and the brawl was on. A sleeper suplex and Skull Crushing Finale were enough to put away the 4x Intercontinental champion.



*Chris Benoit and Prince Devitt have both been compared to Dynamite Kid, British legend and tag partner of the British Bulldog. Tonight, Devitt outlasted Dynamite's own diving headbutt and a powerbomb from Benoit, landing a Bloody Sunday DDT to retain his NWA Heavyweight title.

*Alberto Del Rio had Austin Aries on the rails with a shoulderbreaker, gutbuster, and German suplex. A-Double escaped the cross armbreaker and transitioned into a brainbuster. A hurricanrana pin gained him some ground in the WWE title hunt, although the Intercontinental gold was not on the line.

*Roman Reigns improved his stock with Evolution by pinning Jay Lethal. Lethal had a good roll going with rolling fisherman suplexes and a Lethal Injection. He fell into the power game of Evolution's muscle - spinebuster, spear, side slam, and Superman punch.

*Evolution's blue-chipper Cody Rhodes took down Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins in a triple-threat that will probably have big implications on the WWE title scene. Dolph tried to win it early with a sleeper on Rollins but ended up on the wrong side of a double enziguri. Rollins bounced off the ropes into a springboard clothesline to Rhodes. Cody and Ziggler completed a Silver Spoon DDT and a codebreaker back-to-back to the former United States champion. The Showoff nearly had it via a Zig Zag to the Dashing One. The match concluded when Rollins was thrown out of the reach of Rhodes as he connected on a Cross Rhodes to Ziggler for the three count.

*Daniel Bryan lost to Seth Rollins last week and was matched up with Dean Ambrose this week. I'm sensing this is a devious plot on HHH's part to have the Shield wear down Bryan before his title match this Sunday. That helps him two-fold as the two have been temporarily distracted from Evolution. Ambrose, usually disobedient, seemed to be okay with that for now.



Bryan went right to the Bryan kicks and a roaring elbow before a running knee and YES! Lock. Dean was able to kick out after all of that and locked in a cloverleaf and fujiwara armbar. He gained the momentum to deliver a Dirty Deeds but Bryan wasn't done. He picked the champion up for a hook-n-ladder and a powerbomb. DBry started to bring it back with a triple back suplex but eventually lost to a surprise roll-up.
-------------------------------------
Ambrose, Reigns, Rhodes, and Aries have all had varying degrees of success in the past few weeks since a #1 contender has needed to be named. We can only wonder until Sunday who made the biggest impression.

M's combine for four hit shutout to even series

Seattle - The Mariners pitching dominated the Twins on Tuesday night giving up just four hits en route to a 1-0 shutout victory. James Paxton went six scoreless before giving way to his pen, which was a make shift effort after last night's game. With Danny Farquhar coming on in this one to get the save in lieu of an exhausted Fernando Rodney. Robinson Cano gave Seattle all the offense they needed with an RBI single after an Endy Chavez double kicked off the 6th inning. The Mariners will now look for win number 50 tomorrow in a battle of pitching aces, it will be Ricky Nolasco (7-4, 2.80 ERA) taking on Felix Hernandez (8-7, 2.43 ERA).

We ended up getting Sue for free on an expiring contract. How Wigan let him go is beyond me. Maybe they couldn't, or didn't want to pay his salary any longer. We also gave up quite a lot to land the young and fast rising star Strifler. Unfortunately for us, he would get injured in March and miss the rest of the season. Questions are being asked about his acquisition now.

Alan was an easy sell. He was declining in performance and was becoming a common name on the injured list. Stindl was not someone I wanted to see go, but he forced me into a transfer. He was causing too much of a ruckus in the locker room and the board stepped as well.

All in all, ended up making $3M profit in the month. Used that money to buy a second youth scout. Who ended up finding us a gem of a LW. We've yet to sign him as hes still only 15. But is projected to be a super star some day. Our staff is saying he will probably have a potential of 85-96. His speed and ball control are already off the charts.

We also signed a few others, but we are not sure how they will develop or turn out just yet. Some will be signed and go out on loan this upcoming year.
