Corey Graves: Alexa Bliss made it clear earlier that she is still furious about what happened at Queen of the Ring... she's looking to make a statement here with a victory over "The Man"!
When Alexa had entered the ring, the referee called for the bell and Alexa locked up with Becky Lynch. The two women tried to overpower one another, and after a struggle Becky was able to shove Alexa down onto the mat.

Alexa screamed at the referee to make the count – 1... 2... again Becky kicked out! Alexa was furious, and she yelled at the referee, then stomped on Becky several times. She pulled Becky to her feet and hit a neckbreaker, then climbed to the top turnbuckle and went for Twisted Bliss... but Becky rolled out of the way! As Alexa hit the canvas, Becky grabbed her by the arm, locking in the Dis-Arm-Her! Alexa cried out in pain, but she was able to get to the ropes and the referee ordered Becky to break the hold.

Corey Graves: It's over! A hard-fought victory for Alexa!
Mauro Ranallo: Tremendous match to kick off Warfare!
Alexa rolled out of the ring and celebrated at the bottom of the ramp, then made her way to the back as Warfare went to commercial.
As Warfare returned from a commercial break, Hardcore Holly, Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush were making their way to the ring for the next match.
Mauro Ranallo: Welcome back! Up next, we've got a huge six man tag match as Hardcore Holly, Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush take on The Shield!
When Holly, Lashley and Rush were in the ring, "Special Op" hit and Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Jon Moxley made their way through the crowd. All three members of The Shield entered the ring in unison, and locked eyes with their opponents. Reigns stood across from Lashley on one side of the ring, Rollins stood across from Rush on the other side of the ring, and in the center of the ring, Jon Moxley was staring down Hardcore Holly. Holly swung a right hand at Moxley, and as Moxley returned a right hand of his own, a brawl broke out between all six competitors.
Corey Graves: This match hasn't even officially begun yet, and it's already carnage!
After hitting Holly with a series of punches, Moxley sent the Breakout Champion out of the ring with a clothesline, then followed him to the outside. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ring, Seth Rollins had Lio Rush trapped in the corner, and was hitting him with repeated kicks. Meanwhile, Bobby Lashley had Roman Reigns on the ropes, and as the two men continued to try and gain the upper hand, they ended up throwing one another over the top rope simultaneously! Satisfied that only one man from each team was now in the ring, the referee called for the bell. Rollins dragged Rush out of the corner, and after hitting him with a snap suplex, he hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Rush kicked out! As Rollins stomped on Rush several times, the camera cut to the action outside of the ring. Moxley had Hardcore Holly set up for the Dirty Deeds, but Holly blocked it, then hit Moxley with a low blow! As Moxley clutched his groin, Holly grabbed him and threw him over the announce table! Looking satisfied, Hardcore Holly climbed onto the ring apron, and the camera cut to the bottom of the ramp, where Roman Reigns was brawling with Bobby Lashley. Reigns had Lashley set up for a suplex, and was about to suplex Lashley onto the ramp when Lashley countered with a suplex of his own. As Reigns got to his feet, Lashley threw him into the ring steps, then joined Hardcore Holly on the ring apron.
Mauro Ranallo: Both Reigns and Moxley have been taken out... this match is technically three on one right now!
Corey Graves: Rollins has to keep Lio Rush away from his corner, Mauro, or he could be in real trouble!
Back in the ring, Rollins had Lio Rush grabbed in a headlock. Rush tried to fight out of it, and as both men got to their feet, Rush went for a clothesline.

Rollins staggered out of the corner, and Lashley hit a full nelson slam then hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Rollins kicked out!
Corey Graves: Bobby Lashley reminding everyone why people call him the All Mighty!
Mauro Ranallo: People call Seth Rollins "The Architect", Corey, and right now I'm pretty sure he'd design any structure that would allow him to tag in Roman Reigns or Jon Moxley!
Lashley tagged in Hardcore Holly, who continued to beat down Seth Rollins. Roman Reigns and Jon Moxley took their place on the ring apron, but Hardcore Holly kept Rollins as far away from he could. Holly hit Rollins with a pumphandle slam, then followed it up with a knee drop and hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Rollins kicked out! Holly stomped on Rollins several times, then pulled him to his feet and set him up for a piledriver. Just as he was about to hit it, Rollins countered with a back body drop! Rollins made his way towards the corner, but before he could make the tag, Bobby Lashley entered the ring and ran at Rollins, hitting him with a clothesline to the back of the head! The crowd booed, which seemed to amuse Lashley. As Lashley moved back onto the ring apron, he called for the tag, and Holly tagged him in. Upon re-entering the ring, Lashley whipped Rollins against the ropes, before hitting a thrust spinebuster. He hooked the leg and the referee counted – 1... 2... Rollins kicked out!
Corey Graves: Rollins showing impressive resilience, but he really needs to make a tag and fast!
Mauro Ranallo: Didn't you see what just happened, Corey? He would have already made a tag if it wasn't for Lashley cheating! He got involved when he wasn't the legal man!
Lashley pulled Rollins to his feet and hit him with a series of punches, then whipped him into the corner. Holly and Rush held Rollins in place, and Lashley charged towards him, going for a spear... but Rollins broke free and moved out of the way at the last second! Lashley went shoulder first into the ring post, and to the delight of the crowd, Rollins hit Hardcore Holly with a superkick, knocking him off the apron! Lio Rush tried to grab Rollins, but Rollins hit him with an enzuigiri then crawled towards the corner, tagging in Roman Reigns! The crowd cheered as The Big Dog entered the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Business is about to pick up!
Lashley got to his feet, clutching his shoulder after colliding full force with the ring post. After seeing Reigns, the All Mighty clenched his fists, and the two big men began exchanging right hands back and forth furiously. Reigns was able to gain the upper hand, and after whipping Lashley against the ropes, Reigns hit a leaping clothesline. Both men got to their feet, and Reigns hit a Samoan drop, then hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Lashley kicked out. Reigns pulled Lashley to his feet and hit him with a series of punches, then whipped him into The Shield's corner. Rollins and Moxley held Lashley in place, and Reigns charged towards him, hitting a flying forearm smash! Lashley staggered out of the corner, and Reigns leapt into the air once more, this time hitting a Superman Punch! He hooked the leg, and the referee counted – 1... 2... Lio Rush ran into the ring and broke up the count! The crowd booed, then quickly began to cheer as Reigns got to his feet and grabbed Rush, lifting him up and throwing him out of the ring! However the distraction gave Lashley time to recover, and he grabbed Reigns from behind, lifting him up for a German suplex. Lashley then tagged in Hardcore Holly, who hit Reigns with a DDT and hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Reigns kicked out! Holly sat Reigns up and applied a sleeper hold.
Corey Graves: Hardcore Holly is trying to choke out Roman Reigns! And it looks like it's working!
Reigns was beginning to fade when he got a sudden burst of energy, as wrestlers in a sleeper hold often do. Reigns fought out of the hold and as both men got to their feet, Reigns lifted Holly up, hitting the Niagara Driver! He hooked both legs, and the referee counted – 1... 2... this time Bobby Lashley broke up the count! Reigns got to his feet and glared at Lashley, who smirked and exited the ring. Smiling, Reigns turned to his corner and tagged in Jon Moxley, then charged towards the opposite corner and went after Lashley! While Reigns and Lashley fought outside the ring, Moxley hit Hardcore Holly with the Midnight Special, then hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Holly kicked out!

Moxley hooked the leg, and as the referee made the count, Seth Rollins ran across the ring, hitting Hardcore Holly with a high knee to make sure he couldn't break up the count! The referee counted – 1... 2... 3!
Corey Graves: It's over! The Shield emerge victorious!
All three members of The Shield celebrated together in the ring as Warfare went to a commercial break.
As Warfare returned from break, “We Riot” was heard on the sound system as Liv bounced on the middle with a smile on her face. Behind her, Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan stood proud of Liv Morgan and her recent Queen of the Ring victory. Liv slid back into the ring and joined her squad as “Glasgow Cross” by CF$O takes over the sound system. The Riott Squad look towards the entrance in anticipation of Cross’ arrival. Moments passed and there was still no Nikki Cross.
Mauro Ranallo: Where is Nikki?!
Corey Graves: I bet those goons in the ring did something to her..
Inside the ring, the squad looked confused and started to talk between one another. The music ended which caused a mass confusion among the EBWF Universe. A few seconds later, “Glasgow Cross” started to play again. A few more moments passed before Ruby walked up to the referee and questioned what was going on. The referee shrugged his shoulders just as Zahra Schreiber walked out onto the stage. In her hand was a handful of Nikki’s hair as she drugged Nikki Cross from the back. The squad quickly noticed this and walked to the ropes. They yelled up the ramp at Zahra who just stood there with a smile. Zahra released her grip on Nikki’s hair and Nikki fell to the stage motionless.
Mauro Ranallo: It looks like it wasn’t the Riott Squad who took out Nikki!!
Ruby and Sarah both jumped out of the ring and walked to the end of the ramp. The egged Zahra on and they plead for her to come down the ramp. Zahra stood tall with a smile on her face when suddenly, all the lights in the arena went out.
Mauro Ranallo: What now?!
Moments passed in the darkness, until just as suddenly, the lights flashed back on. Now, Zahra stood in the center of the ring, behind Liv Morgan. The rest of the squad remained outside as everyone continued to stare up the ramp as Nikki laid there alone. The crowd screamed as they attempted to warn Morgan, but before Liv could turn around, Zahra grabbed her and wrapped her arm around Liv’s throat and pulled her to the center of the ring. Morgan screamed before Zahra could clamp down, cause Liv to be unable to get anything out vocally. Morgan kicked her feet just as the rest of the Riott Squad turned around and noticed Zahra in the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: The champion is choking the life out of her challenger!!
Ruby and Sarah moved towards the ring, but once again the lights in the arena went out. Laughter could be heard before the lights flashed back alive. Zahra remained in the ring with Liv in her clutches, but outside, a line of robe wearing, hooded figures stood between the squad and the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Who are..
The slender figures of the seven hooded figures, made you realize, these were females. Ruby and Sarah looked at each other, taken aback by the seven women in front of them. Zahra smiled from the center of the ring and shook her head.
Corey Graves: Zahra paid attention at King of the Ring.. She knows the shortcuts Liv Morgan and the Riott Squad take.
Just then, Zahra grabbed onto Liv’s arm and spun her out. Liv turned to face Zahra, but just as she did, Zahra dropped backwards and brought the sole of her combat boot right under Liv’s jaw. Liv’s head jerked back as she fell to the mat. Ruby and Sarah lunged at the line of druids which started a massive brawl at ringside. Four of the female druids took to Sarah and backed her against the barricade. The three that fought of Ruby, stumbled at first, but quickly grabbed Ruby and threw her into the steel steps.
Mauro Ranallo: These women are dismantling the Riott Squad!!
Sarah headbutted two of the druids, but just as she managed to take them down, the other two chopped blocked the back of Sarah’s legs and dropped her to her knees. Sarah reached out towards the ring where Zahra just stood over Liv and watched her druids take out the squad. One of the druids reached down and pulled Ruby to her feet. She turned Ruby towards the stairs and slammed her face into the steal, not once, but twice. She then threw Ruby to the side and looked over to the other group of druids were stomping down on Sarah Logan.
Mauro Ranallo: This is madness!!
Corey Graves: No, Mauro.. This is Zahra’s revenge.
Mauro Ranallo: Revenge for what?! What did the Riott Squad do to her?
Corey Graves: They didn’t have to do anything..
One of the druids on Sarah reached down and pulled her to her feet. She was met with another druid and the two of them took Sarah and pushed her towards the steel turnbuckle. They pushed off and sent Sarah directly into the steel pole. A loud thud was heard as Sarah’s skull connected with the steel. With the Riott Squad down, the druids stopped and they stood still. All of the turned and looked up into the ring at Zahra. She smiled at the druids and then looked down at Liv. She took the steel toe of her combat boot and placed it under Liv’s chin. Just like Tommy End, Zahra slowly lifted Liv up. Unlike Tommy, Zahra only helped Liv back to her hands and knees. Zahra looked out at the EBWF Universe who were in the midst of a thunderous chorus of boos, and she smirked. She jumped into the air and brought her boot down on the back of Liv’s neck and stomped her head into the canvas.
Mauro Ranallo: AMERICAN HISTORY X!!!
Liv’s face looked impaled into the mat as Zahra stood proud. The lights in the arena dimmed to a bleak darkness. A single golden spotlight shone down on Zahra as “Lost in the Static” blasted onto the sound system. Zahra walked to the edge of the ring and exited through the ropes onto the apron. She paused and looked at the fallen Ruby and Sarah. Zahra sat down on the apron before she hopped off the ring. Zahra walked through the middle of the carnage and headed back up the ramp. In two separate lines, the female druids walked slowly behind Zahra. Without stopping, Zahra and her druids walked through the curtain as all the lights in the arena shut completely off. After another few seconds, the lights return to reveal the devastation. Referees and the EBWF medical staff rush out from the back. The split as a few went to both Ruby and Sarah, and a few more slid into the ring and checked on Liv Morgan.
Mauro Ranallo: Complete carnage!!
Corey Graves: You act like these three didn’t have this coming..
Mauro Ranallo: You think that Riott Squad deserved this?
Corey Graves: Well, when you stick your noses where it doesn’t belong..
A stretcher is brought out from the back and pushed to the edge of the ring. EMTs grabbed the backboard off the stretcher and slid into the ring with it the board. The EBWF medical staff managed to get Ruby and Sarah to their feet and started to head to the backstage area with them. In the ring, the EMTs slowly placed a neck brace on Liv Morgan before they attempted to roll her over onto the backboard. The EBWF Universe were in a stunned silence as they watched. Once strapped to the backboard, the EMTs slid Liv to the edge of the ring and softly placed her onto the stretcher. The hurried as they headed to back. Before she was out of sight, Liv managed to get her thumb up to announce to the EBWF Universe she was fine. Shortly after, Warfare cut to a video package of the return of AJ Styles.
"Phenomenal" hit the PA and the crowd cheered the arrival of AJ Styles who did his usual entrance, playing up to the audience as he made his way to the ring.
Corey Graves: AJ Styles was added to the main event at Summerslam, and now the deck is stacked against The Miz, who doesn't have to be pinned to lose his title.
Mauro Ranallo: I try not to play favorites, Corey, but I've had about enough of The Miz!
Corey Graves: How can you say that? He's the most must see champion in EBWF History!
"Cult of Personality" filled the speakers and the crowd began to boo CM Punk as he took a knee to announce that it was clobbering time. The crowd seemed to boo him louder as Christy Hemme made the announcements, and after the referee checked both man's boots, the bell rang. They both used their speed to counter and reverse at the start. Punk looked for the early GTS but Styles begged him off, and Punk scurried off and rolled out of the ring to catch his breath.
Mauro Ranallo: You can't win a match out there, Punk!
Corey Graves: He's reassessing his game plan, Mauro! Give the man a minute.
AJ stood back as Punk got into the ring. He straightened up and Styles engaged him in a lockup. Punk reversed Styles' attempt at an Irish Whip. Punk hit a double under hook backbreaker. Punk followed by using the ropes for a five count to apply pressure and contort the body of Styles. After the referee broke the count AJ tried to take over. Punk snuck in a roll up so Styles kicked out. Punk stayed in control and headed up top to drop a hard elbow. Styles saw him and rolled out of the way.
Mauro Ranallo: No one home!
Punk charged at AJ in the corner but got sidestepped and crashed shoulder first against the steel post. Styles countered a neck breaker. Punk got wise and countered into a roll up.
Corey Graves: AJ Styles with the kick out!
Punk attempted a running knee but Styles caught him in a power bomb position. Styles ran across the ring with Punk and tossed him into the corner. AJ pinned Punk, but he kicked out before the two. Styles ducked a high kick and hit one of his own. Styles covered.
Corey Graves: Punk kicked out!
Once back on their feet, Styles went for the clothesline, but Punk tripped him up. Punk headed to the top rope, but Styles rolled away again!
Mauro Ranallo: I don't think Punk can take much more of that.
AJ tossed Punk into the turnbuckle. Styles climbed up in the corner but Punk stopped him and set up a superplex. Styles escaped and hit a crossbody. Punk rolled through for a cover but Styles kicked out. AJ launched Punk into the corner, and called for the Phenomenal Forearm.

Punk countered a brain buster, and dropped AJ on his head, but AJ came right back with the brain buster.
Corey Graves: CM Punk doesn't know where he is.
Mauro Ranallo: Another kickout from Punk!
AJ took Punk to the top, but Punk fought him off. Styles followed after him and laid another kick on Punk. He hit the Styles Clash and Styles went for the pin again.
Mauro Ranallo: Styles almost had Punk there!
Once back on his feet, Punk went for a back suplex, but Styles blocked it and locked Punk in a rear naked choke. Punk rolled over and fought up to his feet, breaking the hold by heating the back suplex. The two men exchanged strikes and then Punk whipped Styles into the ropes and attempted a back heel kick, but Styles held on to the ropes to avoid it. Styles hit a series of knees and then went for a clothesline, but Punk countered with a spinning neck breaker. They exchanged strikes again, and then Punk whipped Styles into the ropes and connected with an elbow and then a running knee strike, followed with a clothesline. Punk climbed to the top rope and dove off with the flying elbow drop. Punk hooked the leg.
Corey Graves: What does CM Punk have to do?!
Punk called for the GTS and attempted it but Styles fought out of it and hit a suplex! Styles pinned Punk, but he kicked out at two. Styles was beginning to show his frustration and slammed Punk into the corner, and then lifted him up top. Styles climbed up with him and attempted a superplex, but Punk fought it and head butted Styles knocking him off the top. Punk dove off the top with a flying cross body but Ambrose rolled through for the surprise pin.
Punk kicked out again and then quickly got to his feet, destroying Styles with a roundhouse kick! Yet another pin, and Styles kicked out at two! Punk grabbed Styles and went for the GTS, but Styles blocked it again and hit a knee to the gut before tossing Punk to the outside. Styles followed Punk outside, ringing his bell by throwing him against the ring steps. When the referee got to a six count, Styles helped Punk back into the ring. As Styles slid in, Punk took him by surprise and rolled him up, but Styles kicked out once more. Punk went for the GTS, but Styles countered into an attempted headlock driver. Punk shoved Styles off, and connected with the GTS. He covered.
Mauro Ranallo: CM Punk walks away with his name in the win column, but I think both of these men can claim victory tonight.
Corey Graves: That's not how any of this works, Mauro!
Punk was winded, and sweat was visible in his hair as he pushed it back off his forehead. He was favoring one leg as he stepped to the center of the ring. His hand was raised as Cult of Personality raged and the crowd booed mercilessly. They quickly transitioned to cheers as the music faded and bled into a familiar phrase.
"Oh My Here We Go!"
Corey Graves: Are you kidding me! Could it be?
Mauro Ranallo: San Diego is about to get a visit from the Chairman!
Corey Graves: But by the look of him I'd say he might be here in a Rebel Without a Cause Capacity.
Punk still stood in the center of the ring, but he turned away from the hard camera to face Ikeda has he came down the ramp, his casual jeans and EBWF t-shirt showing he wasn't there in his leadership capacity. He carried a microphone into the ring with him. They were nearly eye to eye, and Wes smirked slightly as Punk seemed to square up.
Wes Ikeda: Easy. Easy. It was a long match, and I don't have any interest in getting physical when you're so obviously not at your best.
Punk sneered at that.
Wes Ikeda: I'm just here to tell you that after that little stunt you pulled last week? If you want me at Summerslam? You got me at Summerslam.
The crowd went wild, and a devilish smirk played on Punk's lips before he landed a knee right to Wes' midsection. Wes doubled over and Punk went to pick him up in the fireman's carry, but the leg he was favoring seemed to buckle a bit and Wes slid off his back and charged at Punk. The crowd was behind Wes as he mounted Punk and laid a flurry of punches all over his head and torso. Wes had to be muted as he cursed Punk out. The official was cautiously trying to call Wes off, but Wes ignored him, and fearing for his job the official wasn't inclined to do much more than try to yell over the melee.
Corey Graves: Punk is absolutely gassed from his match with AJ Styles and now Wes is out here. Someone has to put a stop to this!
Mauro Ranallo: CM Punk stuck first. He started it, can we really blame Wes for finishing it?
Corey Graves: I think we can.
Incensed, Wes pulled Punk to his feet, and picked him up for his set up over the shoulder back-to-belly pile driver!
Mauro Ranallo: It's Time to Go! Will Wes take it Coast to Coast.
Corey Graves: Oh, you'd just love that, wouldn't you, Mauro?
Wes stood over Punk and peered down at him. Then in the heat of the moment, Wes slithered down onto his belly, grabbing the microphone from where it had landed on the mat. He crept up next to Punk's face, where he lay motionless, and spoke.
Wes Ikeda: You're going to wish you hadn't asked for this, Punk. That was just a taste of what you're going to get at Summerslam. The only logical reason you'd even do what you did to me last week is because you've forgotten what I'm capable of. Well, there's your little preview, and at Summerslam? Me and the EBWF Universe? We're gonna remind you just who the hell I am.
"Sound of Madness" hit again, and Wes pushed himself up to his feet, leaving the microphone in the ring. He walked back up the ramp without acknowledging the crowd as Warfare went off the air.
