*Jack Swagger resumed his pursuit of the United States championship and came into contact with a man who he thinks wrongly embodies the blue-collar US citizen: I.R.S., associate of Ted DiBiase. The infamous taxman went down to a Swagger bomb.

*Bray Wyatt's followers have been downright indestructible on their path back to the WWE Tag Team champions. They ran through the Kings of NY (Ryder & Hawkins) as Harper booted Ryder and Rowan chokeslammed Hawkins.

*Ted DiBiase Jr. hopped into a future United States Championship match by topping Jeff Jarrett and Rene Dupree, who also have transitioned over to the blue brand. A Dream Crusher to Double J was the ticket to the win.

*The "New American Dream" Antonio Cesaro confronted one of America's favorite good guys, Surfer Sting. He overwhelmed Sting with a German suplex, torture rack, and a Neutralizer. The Icon was able to subdue him for a bit by carrying out an electric chair drop, Gorilla press, and a classic Stinger Splash in the corner. Heyman's client ended the comeback with a Death Valley Driver on steel steps.

*Ryback def. Blue Blazer (non-title), via Jackhammer

*Samoa Joe failed to get into the US title picture again as Curtis Axel trumped him and Lance Storm in a second triple threat. Axel and DiBiase will encounter Ryback in a three-way for the title at BATB.

*Hunter Hearst Helmsley made a statement in the main-event, pinning C.M. Punk after a Go to Sleep and spinebuster. That was following a beatdown pre-match from Damien Sandow and he added in a stomping of his own at the end. The two high-class intellectuals are proving dominant so far.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BALTIMORE, MD - The Red Sox hit the road to finish the season against division foe Baltimore, and one team would not be happy with the results. Boston came into this game after a disastrous 1-6 stretch leaving them only two games away from 100 wins. The Orioles were probably looking forward to facing a team that has little to play for, but a hot streak by the Blue Jays has them at 4th in the AL East. Jered Weaver would start the game opposite Chris Archer, but only one of them would see the 4th inning.

Both aces swapped scoreless innings to start the game, but then Weaver had one of the worst innings of his life. Blake Swihart, still building his AL ROY resume, hit a 2R-HR in the 2nd to start things off. David Ortiz added an RBI single after Mookie Betts stole 2nd, and Xander Bogaerts turned the misery up to 11 with a 3R-HR to end a 6 run inning.

Weaver bravely came back out for the 3rd and managed to get two outs, but a Shane Victorino solo-HR brought Buck Showalter out of the dugout to end Weaver's day. Michael Morse pulled one back for Baltimore with a solo-HR in the 4th, but Swihart took it right back with his 2nd HR of the day in the 5th. Not to be outdone, Nick Markakis took a hanging slider from Archer and sent it into the stands for a 2R-HR.

Baltimore hung on for another inning, but the 7th became another nightmare. Mike Napoli added another run with a solo-HR, and then David Ortiz made it 10-3 with an RBI single on a Steve Lombardozzi throwing error to first. Jackie Bradley Jr. capped off the inning with an RBI single to score Ortiz and make it 11-3.



Swihart must be the AL ROY, it wouldn't be fair otherwise.

Unfortunately for the Orioles, the Red Sox weren't done. The poor Baltimore bullpen just couldn't get out of the 9th to end the misery, giving up another pair of RBI singles from Ortiz and Bradley. Xander Bogaerts completed the beating with a 3R-HR for an emphatic 16-3 beating. Swihart, now hitting 5th for Boston, may have clinched the ROY race today with a 3/5 2HR performance.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BOSTON, MA - The divisional races are basically locked up and Boston is starting to take their foot off the gas, and back-ups are getting more playing time in anticipation for the playoffs. Chris Archer, within a few strikeouts of 400 for the season, would start tonight in an effort to continue shattering records. The Blue Jays would start Marcus Stroman who is fast becoming one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Things looked really bad for Boston right away with a brutal inning from Archer. Jose Bautista blew the game open with a 3R-HR in the 1st, and Dioner Navarro added an RBI ground-out on a near double play thanks to a rare Dustin Pedroia throwing error. The double play would have ended the inning and staunched the bleeding, but Archer had to strike out Tony Abreu to end the inning and notch his 400th strikeout of the season.

David Ortiz put the Red Sox on the board with a deep solo-HR to straight away center in the second, but things were starting to shape up like the pre-August offense. Stroman held the Blue Jays 4-1 lead through the 5th until he cracked in the 6th. Pedroia made up for his throwing error with a solo-HR that just barely topped the Green Monster, and then the Baseball Gods struck down Toronto with an improbable series of events. Navarro dropped a 3rd strike to Ortiz, probably the easiest player on the planet to throw out at 1st, but he threw the ball high and it sent it into RF which allowed Ortiz to walk to 1st and Blake Swihart to walk home from 3rd.


Stroman did not return for the 7th, still up 4-3, and neither did Archer. Rubby De La Rosa took over and shut out Toronto, but Brett Cecil wasn't as lucky. Cecil gave up a few hits and left Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. on 2nd and 3rd for Pedroia, and he gladly drove them in with a 2RBI single and the lead. Edwin Encarnacion would tie things up in the 8th with a solo-HR, but Boston had some homers of their own waiting for Cecil. Swihart took the lead back with a solo-HR and Xander Bogaerts used a 3R blast to put the Blue Jays away for good.

06:30 AM - August 1, 2014. Written by philliesfan136


*The COO discussed the dismissal of Wade Barrett and Sheamus. They are great wrestlers, he says, but just too unreliable as stable members. When you're not committed fully to his vision, you don't fit in. This is a group of the past, present, and future of the WWE. He is moving forward with Alberto Del Rio as the workhorse Intercontinental champion. Randy Orton, Del Rio, and Roman Reigns will compete to potentially face Daniel Bryan at Bash at the Beach and he is considering other options on the RAW roster. He'll give a fair shake to talents like Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, and even Austin Aries.



*Brodus Clay has joined up with the Prime Time Players in the tag division and David Otunga will apparently be their manager. Those two gave it a go at the Usos in a tune-up before the PPV. Otunga put the coffee down but fell to a super kick and full nelson atomic drop from Jimmy.

*Coming off of a shocker over C.M. Punk on Smackdown, Drew McIntyre engaged in an NWA title bout with Prince Devitt. The Sinister Scotsman did a Scot Drop then they traded a Bloody Sunday/Future Shock. They each got some more shots in but a reverse Bloody Sunday did in DrewMac.

*The impression has been given that Cody Rhodes is the fifth member of Evolution, as he tagged with Randy Orton averse to Austin Aries and his selected partner - Jay Lethal. It's not confirmed but it would make sense, considering he is the future of the business and he has history with Orton in Legacy. The Legend Killer worked over the younger team with Orton stomps and nailed a pop-up RKO on Lethal. Aries & the former ROH TV champ connected on a lift-up heel kick double team to Rhodes. The "Common Denominator Of Greatness" heated up with dropkicks and a tilt-a-whirl neckbreaker. They KO'ed Orton temporarily on a enziguri and DDT, then Aries piledrived Cody. A brainbuster messed up his Dashing face and the Ring of Honor alumni get another surprise win.

*Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose kept the ball rolling from Monday in the form of a trouncing of United Kingdom's own Wade Barrett and Sheamus, who are on a serious cold streak as of late.

Ambrose let loose afterwards:

"The Shield was untouchable. And we will go down in the history books as one of the greatest groups in sports entertainment ever! We dominated WWE, we beat everybody, even Evolution. But we were healthy and meanwhile there was a cancer inside of us, little did we know, and that cancer's name the cancer's name is Roman Reigns. History is full of people like you, Roman. Everybody in this building knows somebody like you, Roman. The kind of guy that would stab his brother in the back. Suck-up, who sells out to The Authority. Now when I get the opportunity to rearrange your face, which I will, your nose isn't gonna be here anymore, it's gonna be over here - by your ear. I say ear 'cause you only gonna have one left. I'm gonna rip your dirty stinking hair out by the roots. I'm gonna stuff it in your mouth, there will be a room where your teeth used to be. Roman Reigns, my brother you're scum! We're all looking forward to what that scum has to say. We want you to stand out here in this ring in front of the whole world and lie through your teeth. We want you to stand in the middle of this ring in front of the whole world and we want them to hear Triple H's words coming out of your mouth. We're gonna listen to every word of it. And then we're gonna beat the living hell out of you!"

*The Mexican Aristocrat met his equal in technical ability again on Heat. Kurt Angle returned to the red brand and was promptly speared through a barricade. Del Rio spared no time in outclassing the veteran and ending it through the German suplex that snared him the Intercontinental championship.

03:59 AM - August 1, 2014. Written by philliesfan136


*Triple H kicks us off again, a standard we should be used to until a movement to obstruct him from power rises. He asserts that Evolution will create a contender to take away Daniel Bryan's WWE title at Bash at the Beach, by hook or by crook. Conceivably, that will be Roman Reigns, who eradicated Kane indefinitely. Or maybe Alberto Del Rio, who is going after Wade Barrett's IC title. Can Dolph Ziggler or Randy Orton prove themselves worthy? He'll consider every RAW superstar provided they impress him these next few weeks. But there is no question that if he is not satisfied he will adjust his stable members accordingly.

And he hasn't forgotten about the Shield. He and Reigns will lecture them about this turn of events soon.



*In their return to RAW, fan favorites Kofi Kingston and Santino Marella challenged the Miz for his European title.

*Cody Rhodes, in intriguing territory with the Authority possible courting him, was tasked with taming Dean Ambrose following a win over Seth Rollins last week. Ambrose is a man on the mission after how Reigns suddenly turned on the Shield. Rhodes, on the other hand, could move himself back into an Intercontinental title match or even get in to the WWE title picture. This time out, the Lunatic Fringe scored one for the Shield with a headlock driver.

*Randy Orton and Cody switch spots this week - Orton gets Rollins after pinning his partner Ambrose last Monday. Seth still has the spark and energy in him after the betrayal - he laid out Orton with a turnbuckle bomb, Shiranui, and a flying springboard knee. In reverse of the past week with Dean, Rollins surprised Randall with a bridge pin that he failed to get out of. The Shield is slowly getting the momentum back on their side, and Evolution will surely have to answer on Heat.

*Roman Reigns went for Evolution's first win on the evening against Austin Aries, a friend of Daniel Bryan's and a guy certainly not interested in having wrestlers of his caliber getting lost in the shuffle. This was an opportunity for both him and Roman to insert themselves into the Undisputed title scene. Double A was red-hot against the rising Reigns, flying all over the squared circle. A running enziguri and single-leg dropkick rocked the powerhouse, who made a comeback with clotheslines, a back body drop, and a spinebuster. The Superman punch should have finished it right then but Aries reversed a powerbomb and landed a brainbuster. Triple H sidetracked the ref but the "Greatest Man that Ever Lived" pulled off the huge upset nonetheless with a springboard crossbody splash. He's raised his chances but also made himself a wanted man for stopping their golden boy.

*IC title holder Wade Barrett went mano-a-mano with WWE champion Daniel Bryan, neither title being exchanged. It's rumored that Barrett and Sheamus are falling out of favor with the Game (similar to Kane), because they haven't quite lived up to what they're being paid for. Dropping a tag match to the Usos and Sheamus falling to Bryan last week definitely didn't help them out. They passed 6 minutes and mainly signature moves happened - Winds of Change vs Bryan kicks. In one of the worst outcomes possible for him, the Bare-Knuckle Brawler was schooled with a school boy. That will not look good on his resume for Evolution.

*Dolph Ziggler moves ahead of Sheamus in the hunt for the WWE Championship via a sleeper hold and a super kick. He chipped in a Brogue Kick, a powerslam, and a fallaway slam in an otherwise uninspiring performance.

*Wade Barrett was forced to defend his newly-won IC gold after a few weeks of a triangle feud with Alberto Del Rio and Cody Rhodes. Triple H is unhappy with his and Sheamus' progress as the hitmen of Evolution as they have lost some "key" matches recently, in his eyes. Del Rio lost to Wade last week in a test but beat Cody Rhodes handily to gain contendership. At this point it looks like H prefers Cody and ADR as his secondaries behind Roman Reigns and Randy Orton. Barrett had the misfortune of taking a corner enziguri, cross armbreaker, and a German suplex pin while one Wasteland was his only nearfall. The german garnered a three count and Del Rio has collected his first Intercontinental title.



The Prince has been ousted along with Sheamus to Smackdown. Triple H will go into more detail on Heat and/or RAW but it overall was a huge victory for Daniel Bryan and the Shield. DBry, Ziggler, Ambrose, Rollins, and Aries all took out the baddies and two of their opponents are gone.

*Hoping to serve as America's new hero further, Jack Swagger defeated Canadian legend Bret Hart.

*NWA Heavyweight Champion Prince Devitt retained the title over Curtis Axel, who he had fought over the European belt the past few months.

*Rowan and Harper picked up another W - versus the Prime Time Players - en route to a possible championship rematch with the Usos at Bash at the Beach.

*Eddie Edwards kept the Cruiserweight championship away from Rey Mysterio and Xavier Woods in an exciting triple threat match.

*The gargantuan Diesel, of WWF fame, made a one-off appearance to fight Cesaro. The new Heyman Guy astonished with his in-ring skill but Diesel very much had more in the tank. Shawn Michaels' former bodyguard pulled off a Jacknife, a chokeslam, and a powerslam along the way, but Heyman's interference proved to be a distraction. The one-time United States champion notched German/gutwrench suplexes, a Swiss Death, and a Neutralizer on the near 7-footer. No legend has matched him as of late.

*C.M. Punk has been infallible since winning the World Heavyweight Championship from rival John Cena at Wrestlemania 30. Oddly enough, Cena has not been seen on Smackdown since. It had that much of an impact on the blue brand and the WWE in general. Punk has been turning away non-title contenders left and right in the past month. When Drew McIntyre was put against him in the main-event, something felt different. McIntyre, mired in the mid-card realm, attacked with a purpose. More weapons were used than usual in a match where the title was not up for grabs.

The World champion was flatlined and had his body spun around into a facebuster, both on steel steps. He was busted open with a chair shot and Drew smashed his abdomen with a sledgehammer. It finished, mercifully, with a Future Shock DDT in to the mat. It became very apparent soon after what the deal was.



*Out came the Savior of the Masses, looking to pick up the scraps. The cash-in was on after the mess that ensued in the ring. McIntyre watched from a distance, surely thinking he's next up, whoever is champion by the end of this. Punk tried to fight against fate but the advantage was to Sandow from the beginning. He whittled the Best in the World down and hit his full nelson slam for the win. Thus, the Duke of Decency has stolen the World Heavyweight Championship from C.M. Punk, ending his two-month reign.

Ric Flair, legendary for his runs with the NWA and WCW World Championship, congratulated the man who beat him fair-and-square in a battle of intellect at Wrestlemania. Hunter Hearst Helmsley joined the party, tossing Punk's bruised body out of the ring. The Connecticut Blue Blood seems to be his associate or protege, and Flair has sung his praises as well.

We'll find out what this means next Friday. The Era of Enlightenment has begun.

Mariners down Padres 5-2, get back to .500

San Diego - The Seattle Mariners used some timely hitting, and more great pitching to win their second straight on Wednesday night. Brad Miller was 3-4 including a three run homer that proved to be the difference. Robinson Cano added a couple of hits himself, while Hisashi Iwakuma dominated on the mound to get the Mariners the win. The Mariners will look to get above .500 tomorrow when they send Chris Young (4-6, 3.79 ERA) to the mound to face Josh Johnson (4-6, 4.95 ERA).

*In a great, near-nine minute 4-way match, the Miz won the European championship from Rick Martel. The fatal four-way, also involving Christopher Daniels and Jay Lethal, ended when Miz buried Lethal's head into the mat with a cradle DDT. Highlights contained were a simultaneous DDT to Martel and snapmare driver to Daniels, plus a sleeper suplex to Lethal onto a chair.

*Bray Wyatt's feud with Big E has heated up to the point of a first blood match. It took a toll on both men, that's for sure. Ladders, trash cans, and chairs were the toys around for Bray and Langston to mess each other up with. Big E's main offense was a big back body drop onto the padding, then Wyatt maintained control the rest of the way. He annihilated the former nXt champion with a German suplex and Sister Abigail, both connecting head-first on a chair. The cult leader kept on trucking with an STO and uranage on the floor. The absolute beating concluded with punches to the face that dyed Langston's face red.

Post-match..
"I have no... followers, I only have brothers and sisters, all in the name of cause. People are sheep, you understand me? They can't lead themselves, they need to be led. People buy themselve fear, they worship war, they crave war, but I'm not afraid of their wars. I created war! And I think it's time for the masses to wake... wake up... WAKE UP! WAKE UP AND LOOK AT THIS LIE THEY'RE LIVING IN, MAN! The world is deteriorating between their toes, and they do nothing about, they only stand there. They whisper and wonder but they never do anything about it. But I've seen it all, in my dreams and in my thoughts and above everything else I understand: This is not the beginning... it's the end."

*In a clash of heavyweights, Ryback clobbered British Bulldog. The United States champion was Gorilla-pressed and powerslammed. He kicked it into gear with a Shell Shock, fallaway slam, and a belly-to-belly on steel steps. A backpack stunner finished the non-title bout for Bulldog.

*The Usos retained the WWE Tag Team championship over Wade Barrett & Sheamus, Evolution's international goons. An apron DDT to Sheamus + a superkick to Barrett got the Usos started. The challengers countered with a Winds of Change + a powerslam. Wade was suplexed on steel stairs as the former World Heavyweight champ bashed an Uso with the Beats of Bodhran. The Bare-Knuckle Brawler administered a powerbomb as the Great White took a Samoan Drop. The United Kingdom members did a Wasteland and Pale Justice with synergy. Another super kick from the Usos in addition to an Omega Driver. Sheamus broke a back with the Irish Curse while Barrett was splashed on for the three count.

*Alberto Del Rio successfully became #1 contender to Wade Barrett's Intercontinental title with a victory against Cody Rhodes, the former champion. Del Rio was aggressive, throwing Rhodes backwards with a German on a steel chair. He caught Cody off of an irish whip into a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. The son of a son of a plumber set up Alberto in the corner and lifted him from the top with a Musclebuster. ADR came back with a corner enziguri but the former WWE Tag Team champion turned the tables again via a lifting DDT and a Final Cut. The "Pride of Mexico" cinched in the cross armbreaker and did a backstabber in the ropes. Cody went back into his playbook with a Silver Spoon DDT but ended up submitting to a second armbreaker.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BRONX, NY - Not much drama left in the season, but a trip to New York is always something to be excited about. The Red Sox have already clinched the AL East, their third in a row, and now it's all about getting to 100 wins. Boston has a small lead over the Dodgers (93-57) for the best record in baseball, and it's still hard to believe this team spent most of the season unable to generate offense.

Chris Archer would take the mound opposite Alfredo Aceves, and there wouldn't be much fight in the Yankees from the start. Xander Bogaerts and Mike Napoli would each hit solo-HR to give Boston a 2-0 lead in the first. David Ortiz would have a solo-HR as well in the 2nd, and then things got really bad for Aceves. Napoli would drive in a run with a single, and then with two men on Shane Victorino would end Aceves' day with a 3R-HR.



Bogaerts would go 3/4 with a HR and 3R scored.

Archer would practically sleep walk through the Yankees' lineup, with a weak single here and there, and a Victorino 6-3 ground out would bring in another run in the 5th for an 8-0 lead. Archer would go 7 inning, finishing with 3BB and 15K without allowing a run. Henry Owens, up for a cup of coffee, would show off for 2016 with two shutout innings and 4K to end the game. Boston would finish the game with only 4K, where the Yankees struck out 19 times. It's going to be a long road back to the top for the Bronx Bombers.

Post-Extreme Rules RAW! What's forthcoming for Evolution? Their monster Kane could not supplant Daniel Bryan as WWE Champion with Dolph Ziggler in the way. They saw Wade Barrett win the Intercontinental title, but failed to beat the Shield. Triple H had bragged beforehand that they didn't want war with his dominant force. He knew the Shield's names and he would spell them in their obituaries. Roman Reigns lauded it as the Fall of the King. Of course, the Game always has something up his sleeve.. there must be a Plan B if he wants to maintain control.

*Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns arrive from the crowd, very pleased with their victory last night. Rollins proclaims that the Shield are the new rulers of the world. When they are a unit, there's nothing stopping them. Not even the top stable on RAW in the last decade could defeat them when they're on their game. Ambrose notes they proved that when their mind is on destruction, they could eviscerate any opponent in their way. The COO's comments about them not being able to do their job and take out Daniel Bryan were ludicrous. Reigns takes the mic and says that they were sick of being puppets, that was never the plan in the first place. But when Triple H made it personal, they made him their direct target and eliminated his group. There was no way any team could take the mantle of having a cohesive impact like the Shield did in one year. Rollins finishes by saying that last night's thrashing convinces any doubters that Hunter can try and control RAW because no number of his goons can take down the Shield. Their core plan was fixing injustice, and no corruption in management will be tolerated.



King of Kings sounds, and here comes Triple H, Wade Barrett, Randy Orton, Del Rio, and Sheamus. Why does he have a damn smirk on his face? The Game decrees that while they did not quite stop the Shield, he does have a clear vision of what will happen going forward. His best men are in place and they will be RAW's next headliners. They are best for business and will ensure that the WWE championship and the RAW brand are in the right hands. Daniel Bryan got lucky once or twice, but he cannot hope to outlast all of Evolution's members. If there's one thing that the Shield haven't learned about the King of Kings, his determination is just as strong as the Shield. You either adapt in times of war, or you perish. He already has adapted and changed the gameplan; he's two steps ahead. What don't the Shield get? Last night was plan A.. this is Plan B.

Spoiler


Bah gawd!! Thus, Reigns has confirmed Dean Ambrose's suspicions from months ago that Roman cared more about himself than the Shield. He has joined Evolution and the momentum is hugely in their favor.

*Erick Rowan and Luke Harper beat Los Matadores to stay in title contention - Rowan chokeslammed Diego and Harper hit Fernando off of the apron.

*Prince Devitt retained his NWA Heavyweight championship over Chris Sabin of the Motor City Machineguns. The first impact move was a Bloody Sunday but Sabin was not down for the three yet. He splashed on a downed Devitt with a standing moonsault and damaged him with a knee facebreaker. The former IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion eventually got the upper hand and won with a Dreamcast (jumping corkscrew roundhouse kick).

*Cody Rhodes pinned Seth Rollins, perhaps shifting himself into a rematch with Wade Barrett for the IC title. Triple H booked him against Rollins for his "disrespectful" comments to start the show. Cody had his Cross Rhodes reversed into a Sethwalker in the beginning flurry. They traded a northern light suplex and lifting underhook DDT. Seth used his athleticism to do a standing shooting star press and then threw Cody down with a falcon arrow. The Dashing One plopped his opponent through the announce table with a DDT. He tossed Rollins back in the ring and did a spinning neckbreaker. The former United States champion flung Rhodes into the corner with a buckle bomb. The son of Dusty rose and climbed to the top for a flying bulldog. The Architect then landed a sunset flip powerbomb to the outside. Finally, the most recent Intercontinental champ notched a Final Cut suplex and the decisive Cross Rhodes.

*A psychotic Dean Ambrose tried to let out some of his rage against the Viper, Randy Orton. COO Triple H is very well aware that, when induced with anger, Ambrose is a dangerous man and could be a viable threat to his alliance. Therefore, he sent the Legend Killer to counter him, hoping to reinvigorate the crazy side of him from years back. Dean got going early with an Ace Crusher and a hook-and-ladder facebuster. The two went out of the ring and Reigns, at ringside, lifted him for a Samoan drop. Orton immediately grabbed his neck and locked him in for a backbreaker. He slid his body back into the ring and stomped all over him, Garvin-style. An RKO would not keep down the rabid Ambrose, who leaped up and busted out a headlock driver. Randall recovered, clotheslined him right back down, and dropped his knee on his head, busting open the lunatic fringe. The Deanser brought him back down to the mat, choking him and then flying around for a Muta flashing elbow. Orton did a perfect dropkick and when Ambrose got back up, he rolled him up for a quick three count. That left the "unchained melody" of the Shield furious. He's not gonna let this one go, and they have only fueled his hatred.

*It was put up or shut up for Alberto Del Rio, trying to stay in Evolution's good graces with a win over Intercontinental champion Wade Barrett. Barrett drew back to his brawling roots with multiple punches leading to a Winds of Change in the start of the match. He had complete control, smashing ADR's face with a Bullhammer. Del Rio fired right back with a cross armbreaker but it was futile. The Prince nailed a boot in the corner and winded up for an Omega Driver. That was just about it but Mexico's Greatest Export had it in him to do a bridging German suplex. Wade continued to put on the pressure with a headbutt that bloodied Alberto, then drove him down with a sit-out powerbomb. Del Rio had the energy to back drop the champion and do a shoulderbreaker as well. A second Bullhammer elbow to the face earned Barrett the three count, in dominating fashion.

*To cement his status as Evolution's new powerhouse, Reigns was put in the ring with Kane. The Game stated that they would not hesitate to eliminate a weakness. Apparently, the Big Red Monster was his target in this case, for not winning the WWE title. He gave Roman a powerbomb to open up this battle of big men. Reigns returned the favor with a Jacknife through the announce table. He showed off his strength further with a gorilla press and a spinebuster. The Shield traitor chained together a sitout side slam, Superman punch, and a pop-up Samoan drop. After that, he set up Kane for an apron DDT and threw in a Rock Bottom. The Devil's Favorite Demon revived and dealt out a tilt-a-whirl slam and a Tombstone. That was a last-ditch effort in the end as Reigns was unstoppable - a second Superman shot was the final blow.

*Sheamus was next in line of defense for Evolution, matching up with Daniel Bryan in a non-title situation. Bryan's fury from Extreme Rules carried over as he thumped the Celtic Warrior with a roaring elbow, double underhook suplex, and trademark kicks. A running knee made a crimson mask on Sheamus' pasty face. He powered up and retaliated with a High Cross. They exchanged a YES! Lock and a White Noise. Bryan whipped Fella into the corner and ran in for his classic speedy dropkick. The WWE champion completed two back suplexes and two Germans, then executed a Cattle Mutilation. The 2012 Royal Rumble winner had a Brogue Kick reversed into an arm drag, but was able to perform a pop-up Brogue after an Irish Curse backbreaker. That should have been three although DBry had the wherewithal to produce a shining wizard to the face and submit Sheamus with a dragon sleeper. He looks as invincible as anybody right now, hence why Triple H is going every which route to ramp up his efforts of relieving him of the title.

Cal Clutterbuck added the finishing touches to a much needed win for the Islanders with an empty-net-goal in a 2-0 win over his former team, the Minnesota Wild, Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center.



NOTES: Michael Grabner sustained an injury in the third period which could lead to another trip on the IRL, but Captain John Tavares may be back for Thursdays game against Dallas.
