Mauro Ranallo: Good evening and welcome to Warfare! Tonight, we are live from Madison, Wisconsin!
Nigel McGuinness: Kicking things off tonight, we've got women's action as the former Women's Champion, Raquel Diaz, goes one on one with Alexa Bliss.
Bliss made her way to the ring first, followed by Raquel Diaz. When both superstars were in the ring, the referee called for the bell and the two women locked up. Bliss put Diaz in a headlock, but Diaz countered it into a hammerlock, then whipped Bliss against the ropes. As Bliss ran back towards her, Diaz hit an arm drag, then as Bliss got back to her feet, Raquel Diaz took her down with a snapmare. She followed it up with a leg drop, then hooked the leg. The referee counted – 1... 2... Bliss kicked out! Diaz pulled Bliss to her feet and whipped her into the corner, then ran towards her, hitting a corner dropkick. As Bliss staggered out of the corner, Diaz set her up for a suplex, but Bliss blocked it, countering with a reverse STO into the corner! Raquel's face collided with the second turnbuckle, and as she slumped to the mat, Bliss moved her away from the ropes and made the cover. The referee counted – 1... 2... Diaz kicked out! Bliss got to her feet and stomped on Diaz several times, then pulled Diaz to her feet and slammed her head off the top turnbuckle. Bliss then sat Diaz on the top rope, and set her up for the frankensteiner... but Diaz countered it with a powerbomb!
Mauro Ranallo: Mamma Mia! That shook the ring!
Raquel Diaz hooked both legs and the referee counted – 1... 2... Bless kicked out just before the 3! Diaz pulled Alexa Bliss to her feet and lifted her onto her shoulders, hitting the Gory Bomb! She hooked the legs once more – 1... 2... 3!
Nigel McGuinness: Raquel Diaz marks her return to in ring action with an impressive victory!
Mauro Ranallo: Up next, we've got something of a grudge match as Becky Lynch takes on Natalya!
Nigel McGuiness: There is no love lost between these two superstars, Mauro... it should match for an interesting matchup!
"Celtic Invasion" hit and Becky Lynch made her way to the ring, accompanied by Winter. When Lynch was in the ring, "Missile" by Dorothy hit and Natalya headed to the ring, accompanied by the Women's Champion, Trish Stratus. Lynch glared at both Trish and Natalya as they walked down the ramp. Trish smirked as they reached the bottom of the ramp, and held up her Women's Championship, taunting Becky Lynch. Natalya rolled into the ring, and as the referee called for the bell Lynch charged towards her, hitting her with a series of punches. Natalya fought back with some right hands of her own, then whipped Lynch against the ropes. As Lynch ran back towards her, Natalya went for a clothesline, but Lynch ducked underneath it and grabbed Natalya from behind, hitting a hammerlock inverted DDT. Lynch stomped on Natalya's shoulder several times, then applied an armbar. Natalya was able to counter it, rolling over and grabbing Lynch, lifting her up and hitting a powerbomb. She then hooked both legs and the referee counted – 1... 2... Lynch kicked out! Natalya pulled Lynch to her feet and hit her with a suplex, then stomped on Becky several times. Natalya then grabbed Lynch by the legs and went for the sharpshooter, but before she could lock it in Becky kicked her away and got to her feet. Natalya grabbed Lynch and hit her with a right hand, but Becky fought back with a knee to the face, then followed it up with an uppercut. As Natalya staggered backwards, Lynch took her down with a flying forearm smash, then grabbed her by the legs and locked in the sharpshooter!
Mauro Ranallo: Becky is trying to beat Natalya with her own submission!
Natalya cried out in pain and tried to make it to the ropes, but Lynch pulled her away from the ropes and applied more pressure. The referee asked Natalya if she wanted to submit, but Natalya shook her head and rolled over, kicking Becky Lynch into the corner of the ring as she did so. Lynch fell as she stumbled backwards, hitting her head of the middle turnbuckle, and as Natalya got to her feet she stomped on Becky in the corner several times. Natalya then dragged Lynch away from the corner, and put her in the Dis-arm-her!
Nigel McGuinness: Natalya is giving Becky Lynch a taste of her own medicine here!
Becky was able to break the hold and as both women got to their feet, Becky grabbed Natalya, setting her up for an exploder suplex. Natalya blocked it and took Lynch down to the mat, then locked her in the Sharpshooter! Lynch cried out in pain, but she was able to get to the ropes. The referee ordered Natalya to break the hold and began counting – 1... 2... 3... 4... Natalya broke the hold just before the 5 count! Natalya pulled Lynch away from the ropes, then dragged her to her feet and set her up for a Reverse Powerbomb. She lifted Becky up... but Becky countered it into a sunset flip powerbomb! She hooked both legs and the referee counted – 1... 2... Natalya kicked out just before the 3!
Mauro Ranallo: Great counter by Becky Lynch! She almost had Natalya beat!
Both women got to their feet, and Natalya went for a Discus Clothesline... but Lynch ducked out of the way, then hit Natalya with a neckbreaker. Becky then grabbed Natalya by the arm... and locked in the Dis-arm-her! Natalya began crawling towards the ropes, but Lynch pulled her back towards the center of the ring. Just when it looked like Natalya was going to tap, she managed to get her foot on the ropes! The referee ordered Becky to break the hold, but the Irish Lass Kicker shook her head and kept it locked in! The referee began counting – 1... 2... 3... 4... 5... Becky was still refusing to break the hold! The referee called for the bell.
Nigel McGuinness: I think Becky has snapped here, Mauro... she said she wanted to "torture" Natalya, and she doesn't seem to care that she's got herself disqualified!
As Natalya tried to fight out of the hold, Trish Stratus entered the ring and charged towards Becky Lynch. Upon seeing Trish in the ring, Becky quickly broke the hold and rolled out of the ring, smirking cockily. Trish glared at her, then checked on Natalya. Becky Lynch and Winter made their way up the ramp as Warfare went to a commercial break.
Mauro Ranallo: Welcome back! Before the commercial break, we saw what I can only describe as an attempt by Becky Lynch to injure Natalya. Becky had Natalya in the Dis-arm-her and she refused to break the hold, even after the referee had disqualified her for ignoring the rope break. We understand Natalya is being checked on backstage by our trainers and medical staff, and we will try and give you an update on her condition before the end of the show. Up next though, it's time for our main event. We've got the former EBWF World Champion, The Rock, in action as he goes one on one with the Breakout Champion, Tomohiro Ishii.
Tomohiro Ishii made his way to the ring first, and the Stone Pitbull received a mixed reaction from the crowd as he headed to the ring. After Ishii had entered the ring, "Electrifying" hit and the crowd went wild as The Rock strutted to the ring. Upon entering the ring, The Rock climbed the turnbuckle and did his signature pose, before climbing down and staring across the ring at Ishii. As the referee called for the bell, Rock held out his hand, challenging Ishii to "Just Bring It!" Ishii charged towards The Rock and hit him with a series of punches, then went to whip him against the ropes, but The Rock reversed the Irish whip, sending Ishii into the ropes. As Ishii ran back towards him, The Rock took him down with a clothesline, then as Ishii got to his feet, The Rock hit him with a series of right hands. The Rock then whipped Ishii into the corner and charged towards him, but Ishii got his leg up and hit The Rock with a boot to the face. As Rock staggered backwards, Ishii ran towards him, going for a clothesline, but The Rock ducked out of the way and took Ishii down with a Russian legsweep, then hooked the leg. The referee counted - 1... 2... kickout!
Nigel McGuinness: A strong start from The Rock!
Both men got to their feet and The Rock hit Ishii with a series of punches, then dragged him towards the corner and went to slam his head off the turnbuckle. Ishii blocked it and slammed The Rock's head off the turnbuckle, then as The Rock staggered backwards, Ishii hit him with a headbutt! The Rock looked dazed, and Ishii took him down with a DDT, then hooked the leg. The referee counted - 1... 2... kickout!
Mauro Ranallo: Another near fall! This time Ishii gets a two count!
Ishii pulled The Rock to his feet and hit him with a series of chops to the chest, then went to whip him against the ropes. The Rock reversed the Irish whip, sending Ishii against the ropes, then as Ishii ran back towards him, The Rock hit a spinebuster! To the delight of the crowd, he then signalled for the People's Elbow! The Rock ran against one set of ropes, jumped over Ishii and ran against the second set of ropes... then Ishii got to his feet and grabbed The Rock, hitting him with a powerslam! Ishii hooked the leg once more and the referee counted - 1... 2... Rock kicked out! Ishii got to his feet and stomped on The Rock several times, then pulled him to his feet and set him up for a German suplex. The Rock blocked it, then turned around and grabbed Ishii, whipping him against the ropes. As Ishii ran back towards him, The Rock hit a snap overhead belly-to-belly suplex! Both men got to their feet and The Rock hit a flowing snap DDT, followed by a kip-up. The crowd cheered and The Rock crouched down, waiting for Ishii to get back to his feet. When Ishii was up, The Rock grabbed him, hitting the Rock Bottom! He hooked the leg and the referee counted - 1... 2... 3!
Mauro Ranallo: It's over! An impressive performance from both of these superstars, but in the end The Rock gets the victory!
Nigel McGuinness: He needs to keep the momentum if he is to reclaim the World Title at Christmas Eve of Destruction!
The referee called for the bell and raised The Rock's arm in victory. As The Rock celebrated, Aiden English stepped out onto the stage, accompanied by Kingdom. English sarcastically applauded The Rock from the top of the ramp. The Rock glared at English and pointed to the World Title, then pointed to his waist. English laughed and shook his head. The Rock and Aiden English continued to taunt one another from afar as Warfare went off the air.
