Warfare Results 04/10/2023

Post by Ben M »

MATCH ONE

Mauro Ranallo: Get ready folks… it’s time for Warfare! We are live from Lexington, Kentucky and kicking things off, we’ve got Christian Cage in action as he takes on the cold-hearted handsome devil, Hook!

“My Last Breath” by Evanescence hit and the crowd booed as Christian Cage made his way to the ring. When Christian was in the ring, “The Chairman’s Intent” by Action Bronson hit, and the crowd cheered as Hook headed to the ring. As Hook entered the ring, he walked towards the corner and turned his back on Christian.

Nigel McGuinness: Hook is doing his usual trick of refusing to look at his opponent as he enters the ring… it’s his way of trying to get into their head!

Mauro Ranallo: I also think it’s a sign of disrespect, Nigel, and judging from Hook and his father Taz’s comments before this match, they certainly don’t respect Christian!

After the referee had called for the bell, Hook and Christian met in the center of the ring. Christian got in Hook’s face and began mouthing off at him, then tried to catch him off guard with a cheap shot… but Hook was ready for it and he dodged the blow, then grabbed Christian and hit him with an exploder suplex! Christian rolled out of the ring and Hook followed him to the outside, but as he tried to grab Christian, Christian caught Hook with a knee to the midsection, then slammed his head off the steel steps before throwing him into the ring post!

Nigel McGuinness: That sounded painful, Mauro… Christian might have just given Hook a concussion!

Christian threw Hook back into the ring, then set him up for the Unprettier… but Hook broke free and got behind Christian, hitting a release German suplex. As Christian got back to his feet, Hook went for Redrum, but Christian broke free then hit Hook with a low blow in full view of the referee! The referee called for the bell.

Mauro Ranallo: What the hell… did Christian get himself disqualified on purpose?

Hook fell to the mat, and as he did so, Christian stomped on him repeatedly, then rolled out of the ring and grabbed a steel chair. Christian re-entered the ring with the chair, and hit Hook with it several times!

Mauro Ranallo: Oh, come on, this isn’t right!

The referee tried to stop Christian, but Christian threatened him with the chair. As the referee retreated, Christian placed the chair on the mat… then dragged Hook to his feet, hitting an Unprettier onto the chair! Christian rolled out of the ring, leaving Hook laid out on the mat, and then went to walk up the ramp… but Christian then shook his head, and grabbed a second steel chair!

Nigel McGuinness: Oh my… I think Christian is planning a Con-Chair-To!

As Christian re-entered the ring, Taz ran down the ramp and slid into the ring, getting between his son and Christian. Laughing, Christian dropped the chair and rolled out of the ring, leaving through the crowd. Taz checked on Hook as Warfare went to a commercial break.

MATCH TWO

When Warfare returned from the commercial break, "Riot Of Flowers" hit and the crowd booed relentlessly for the arrival of Utami Hayashishita, who was flanked by Himeka Arita and the mysterious masked woman.

Christy Hemme: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, accompanied by Himeka Arita and representing Queen’s Court, from Amami, Kagoshima, Japan. The Crimson Queen, Utami Hayashishita!!

Mauro Ranallo: Utami hasn't been in a good mood over the last few weeks, not only did she lose at Fallout but she's also been haunted by some mysterious person that she apparently knows. She made the challenge to Alexa Bliss for this match tonight to prove her dominance though it's funny that she wanted this match just a few weeks after Alexa went through a war at Fallout.

Nigel McGuinness: Which is nothing new for this rivalry.

Utami entered the ring and her music cut. "Immortal" by Adema played and the crowd erupted into cheers as Alexa Bliss made her way out on stage. Notably Alexa was wearing the same Harley Quinn inspired gear she wore at Fanniversary. Alexa started to walk towards the ring but stopped and backed up with a smirk on her face, she pointed towards the curtain and the crowd cheered again as Liv Morgan came out on crutches.

Mauro Ranallo: Looks like Liv Morgan wants to watch this match up close.

Nigel McGuinness: Liv has been at Alexa's side throughout this entire war with Queen’s Court but given Liv's current condition you have to wonder if it's too dangerous for her to be out here.

Mauro Ranallo: The same can be said for Alexa who's still sporting the bandages on her body from the results of the match at Fallout.

Alexa entered the ring and the referee called for the bell to start the match. The two women met in the middle of the ring in a staredown mouthing off to each other. Utami went for a kick to the gut but Alexa caught her foot and hit her with a forearm smash, causing Utami to roll out of the ring.

Mauro Ranallo: The Crimson Queen attempted a cheap shot but Alexa saw it coming.

Nigel McGuinness: Alexa knows that Utami will go after her torso and back and has to try to prevent any attacks towards those areas.

Utami was seething on the outside as Alexa taunted her in the ring. Utami went back inside and Alexa surprised her by calling for a test of strength. Utami laughed in disbelief but decided to accept the challenge only to be met with Alexa's middle finger. Utami slapped Bliss in response. Alexa processed the slap for a moment before smirking, and then punched Utami in the face. The two grabbed each other and started exchanging punches as the crowd cheered. Utami managed to push Alexa into the corner and took a few steps back before charging towards her but Alexa moved out of the way and Utami went shoulder first into the ring post. Bliss took advantage and rolled her up.

1…

2…

Kickout!

Alexa went to pick Utami up but was met with a knee to the stomach. Alexa clutched the injured area which gave Utami the opportunity to push her into the corner again and hit a shoulder thrust.

Nigel McGuinness: Alexa avoided it as long as she could but Utami is now successfully targeting those injuries.

Alexa sat in the corner wincing in pain. Utami threw her to the middle of the ring and stomped on her lower back causing Alexa to scream in agony. On the outside Liv Morgan had a look of concern on her face. Utami bent down and ripped off the bandage on Alexa's lower back, holding it up in the air with a smile on her face and exposing the stitches on Alexa's back.

Mauro Ranallo: There's the damage that was done from a barbed wire baseball bat.

The crowd were stunned at the sight as Utami went to attack the injured area but Alexa quickly fought her off with back elbow strikes to the head. Alexa got to her feet and ducked a clothesline from Utami before delivering a clothesline of her own that sent The Crimson Queen out of the ring. When Utami got to her feet she was met with a flipping senton off the apron by Bliss. Both women got to their feet and Alexa attempted to whip Utami into the steps but it was reversed and Alexa crashed into the steps back first. Utami threw Alexa back into the ring and punted her in the torso causing a sickening pop that made the crowd groan. Utami had a sick smile on her face as she got down behind Alexa and managed to trap her arms in a crucifix style position. Utami then ripped off the bandage from Alexa's stomach. Alexa was helpless as Utami proceeded to target one of the stitches, clawing and tugging at it until it drew blood; this caused Alexa to scream in pain eventually pulling the thing out to the crowd's and Liv's horror.

Mauro Ranallo: Oh my God!

Still with a sick smile Utami targeted another stitch and did the same, causing Alexa to scream again. Alexa managed to kick in the head a few times to get her off.

Nigel McGuinness: That was the most sickening thing I've ever seen in my life.

Both women got to their feet and Utami ran at Alexa but was caught by the throat. Alexa had a look of anger on her face and took Utami down with an STO. Bliss looked down and saw blood trickling from her wound and shook her head before hitting insult to injury. Alexa stood on Utami's hair and grabbed her arms pulling them up as the referee started to count.

1…

2…

3…

4…

Alexa let go and the referee chastised her, receiving a dirty look in the process. When Utami got to her feet Alexa charged full speed and took her down with a Lou Thesz press and rained down punches to the crowd's delight.

Nigel McGuinness: Utami attacking her stitches has pissed Alexa off.

Utami shoved Alexa off of her and attempted to crawl away but Bliss ran back towards her and hit a double foot stomp which put her in perfect position to deliver some blissful curb stomps.

Mauro Ranallo: Alexa has to be careful not to get disqualified.

After a four count from the referee, Alexa backed away for a bit before grabbing Utami and setting her up for the DDT… but the Crimson Queen slipped out and kicked Alexa in the gut, then her up for the BT Bomb. Alexa countered into the Code Red and went for the pin.

1…

2…

Kickout!

Both women were down and the crowd booed when Himeka got on the apron with chair in hand, seemingly trying to give it to Utami, but the referee caught her and got into an argument with her. The crowd started to cheer as unbeknownst to Himeka, Liv Morgan snuck up behind her. Liv put down one of the crutches and proceeded to break the other crutch over Himeka's back.

Mauro Ranallo: Liv's making sure Himeka isn't gonna play a factor.

Back in the ring Utami surprised Alexa with Rose's Thorns and went for the pin.

1…

2…

Kickout!

Utami was a little surprised but quickly pulled Alexa to her feet and hit her again with Rose's Thorns.

1…

2…

Kickout!

Mauro Ranallo: Mamma mia!

Nigel McGuinness: How did Alexa kick out of two Rose's Thorns?

Mauro Ranallo: Alexa's heart is still beating strong.

Utami shook her head in disbelief and started mumbling to herself. The Crimson Queen picked Alexa up again for a third Rose's Thorns… but Alexa slipped out and hit a DDT. The crowd cheered as Alexa staggered to her feet and climbed the top rope before hitting…

Mauro Ranallo: Twisted Bliss!!

1…

2…

3!

The crowd erupted into cheers as Alexa's music hit.

Christy Hemme: Here is your winner, Alexa Bliss!!

Nigel McGuinness: She did it after months and months Alexa has finally taken down The Crimson Queen.

Alexa rolled out of the ring and was immediately greeted with a hug from Liv as tears of joy ran down both of their faces.

Mauro Ranallo: Everything these two went through during this war has paid off tonight.

Liv raised Alexa's hand in victory as the fans roared in approval. Utami meanwhile crawled to a corner and sat there, looking totally shocked at the result. She didn’t even react when Liv and Alexa turned to her and flipped the Crimson Queen off in unison!

SEGMENT

As ‘Immortal’ faded, the cameras turned back to the ring. Surprisingly Utami continued to sit in the corner, back up against the turnbuckles. She had a thousand-yard stare as her face had shock written all over it. Her failure to defeat Alexa Bliss seemed to have broken the Crimson Queen for the moment. She even remained in the corner as Himeka and the masked woman climbed into the ring to check on their liege. Slowly Utami blinked, realized where she was and slowly pulled herself up with the ropes. She staggered to the center of the ring, shaking her head as she tried to process what had just happened.

Nigel McGuinness: The Crimson Queen is out of sorts after losing to her hand-picked opponent, Alexa Bliss. Where must her thoughts be after losing two huge matches in a row?

Mauro Ranallo: She’s been clearly off her game since those mysterious vignettes began playing every week. Maybe they really were about Utami, maybe not. But the fact remains that after everything she’s done to Alexa Bliss and every other woman in that locker room, Utami’s plans have failed. Alexa should rest well knowing that she’s ruined the Crimson Queen’s designs for EBWF.

Utami stood in the middle of the ring, staring down at her feet as the fans booed. Meanwhile her two allies stood anxiously behind her, waiting for orders. None came for several long moments. Finally, Utami motioned toward the masked woman, who leaned through the ropes and fetched a mic from ringside. She held it out to Utami, who took it in her left hand and paused for a long moment. Finally, the Crimson Queen looked up into the camera, her expression distraught. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she finally spoke, but only three words.

Utami: She was right.

Utami’s head hung down in shame as she admitted this to a mixed reaction from the crowd. There was a buzz in Rupp Arena as the fans began to wonder just what the Crimson Queen was talking about. Utami slowly motioned to Himeka, who hesitated before producing a pair of scissors from her gear. The Crimson Queen held these in her left hand, but did nothing with them for now. Maybe she would have in a moment if unexpected music hadn’t hit at that exact moment. The aristocratic opening to “Bara wa utsukushiku chiru” hit and Utami’s head snapped up to see what was about to unfold. Her face went pale and her jaw dropped as she seemed to recognize exactly who was arriving.

With Utami, the crowd’s attention was also collected on the entrance ramp. On the stage appeared a tall, slim woman with Asian features. Her classy black-white outfit was decorated with black opera gloves and a wide black fascinator hat. A satisfied smile rested on her face that fit so well that you’d hardly be judged if you thought that was the only expression her face was created to bear. In her left hand, she held a single red rose.

Mauro Ranallo: Mamma mia! The woman who’s been sending cryptic messages every week for the past month is none other than Sakisama! This is bad news for every woman in EBWF - it’s no wonder Utami’s been so upset about those vignettes.

Nigel McGuinness: For those unfamiliar with her, Sakisama’s cast a long dark shadow over Japanese wrestling for the past 8 years. Ever since she first stepped into a ring, she’s been incredibly dominant even against the aces of Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling. Her belief that strength is beauty and beauty is strength has led her to become one of the most feared women in professional wrestling. The fact that she’s here tonight and apparently has her sights set on Utami Hayashishita isn’t just bad news - it’s a mystery. What could she possibly want from the Crimson Queen?

No one knew what was going on but one thing was sure: this woman truly looked like the manifestation of beauty and nobility. Under the curious gazes of thousands, Sakisama started to walk towards the ring. She took her time but her noticeable height helped her steps to be bigger. She then proceeded to climb the steel steps and gently enter the ring between the top and the middle ropes. Sakisama walked towards Utami but Himeka and the masked woman took a step forward, shielding their Queen from The French Aristocrat.

Nigel McGuinness: Queen’s Court isn’t about to let this intruder get her hands on their queen. You can’t deny that Sakisama cuts an imposing figure all on her own though. I don’t think Himeka’s used to looking up at someone.

Mauro Ranallo: You’re absolutely right about that, partner. Himeka Arita is tall in her own right, but Sakisama is even taller. Compared to Utami’s allies, she’s got a much trimmer figure though. Himeka has the power advantage, but I’m not sure she knows quite what to do about the towering figure of Sakisama.

Her only response was a chuckle to this before she took a step back. A gentle nudge to a charmed ringside attendant had her now equipped with a microphone, which she didn’t waste any time before raising it to her lips.

Sakisama: Even as a simple messenger, I have become the very catalyst of change I had been talking about. Utami-chan, don’t be sad. Everything that I told you would happen has happened. You lost your opportunities. You lost your rivalries. And match by match, you’re losing your dignity and your self-respect. This is no time to be sad, Utami-chan, after all, you could’ve prevented this if you just stopped pretending. I warned you about the consequences of playing your little monarchist fantasy games. Your crown has no power. You had no ruling authority to begin with. After all, kings and queens are whoever the nobility decides to put a crown on at the end of the day.

A rather high-society laugh came out of her lips as she mocked the once proud queen. Himeka and her masked compatriot grew more uncomfortable with this.

Sakisama: Before me, you have no legitimacy. Before me, you are powerless. People follow power. True power. People obey the strong. Utami-chan, you very well know that strength is beauty and beauty is strength. I think this whole joke of a court is just a testament to your lack of intelligence. And as I’ve hinted in my previous messages to this humble EBWF community, it’s time your Queen’s Court comes to an end. This is no simple request, this … is an order.

This drew even more of a buzz from the crowd as they waited to see Queen’s Court respond to the newcomer’s demand. Himeka looked over to her masked compatriot, who nodded in understanding. Both women took a purposeful step toward Sakisama, ready to throw down with the French aristocrat right then and there! A shocked gasp erupted from the crowd as there was indeed an attack. A loud crack sounded throughout Rupp Arena as a chair slammed into Himeka’s back! We then saw Utami slam the chair down onto Himeka’s back again, then again. Himeka struggled to get to her knees but Utami slammed the chair over her head, knocking her down to the mat.

Too late to help her partner, the masked woman stormed in and shoved Utami away. Utami glared at her former ally and then nailed her right in the ribs with the chair! She then wailed away at the woman, each blow sounding more sickening than the last until the chair was bent out of shape. It was tossed aside as Utami pulled the masked woman up, let out a scream and lifted her up for the Rose’s Thorns! To a groan of sympathy from the Rupp Arena crowd, Utami hit her finisher on the masked woman. The woman remained motionless on the mat, her mask somewhat pulled off in the assault. Himeka had just gotten up and Utami wasted no time in lifting her into a torture rack! After wrenching the hold Utami hurled Himeka over the top rope onto the arena floor with a sickening thud. Boos rang out as Utami reached down to the mat and picked up the scissors from earlier.

She stared up into Sakisama’s eyes, sending a wordless message of subservience. To the shock of everyone, Utami proceeded to snip away at her long black and red locks. She continued at a frenzied pace, locks falling all around her as if scattered in the wind. Finally, she finished the impromptu haircut, her hair much shorter than before. Utami then hurled the scissors down so hard they impaled the mat. The fallen queen looked up at Sakisama once more, tears still trailing down her cheeks. It was then that the fans realized Utami meant Sakisama had been right. Utami placed her right hand in a fist over her heart, then bent at the knees in a bow to Sakisama as the fans booed for lack of any other suitable reaction.

As for Sakisama herself, she’s watched all of this in the same place with the same expression ever-present on her face. After Utami bowed down to her grace though, Sakisama kindly raised three fingers over her mouth and lightly tilted her head to the side, mockingly feigning her ‘surprise’. But then, the self-serving smirk broke out once again as she gently patted Utami’s head. The microphone was once again raised to her lips at the same time and she once again took the spotlight.

Sakisama: Isn’t this so much better? Isn’t this so much easier? Utami-chan, you were never fit for a crown. You’re no royalty. You’re no nobility. The best chance you ever had at going through your life was being someone who serves instead of someone who rules. You had your fun playing pretend, but you see; life has a nasty habit of putting everything into its natural order. Your rose can now serve a true purpose. Your rose can now be truly beautiful. In my garden, tended and taken care of by me and me alone. Now that you’re pledging your allegiance and servitude to the most beautiful and the most powerful of them all, there will be nothing that can stand in your way. You and me, Utami-chan, will change the landscape of EBWF together. Starting with…

Her beautiful gaze turned to Utami’s masked former enforcer trying to come to her senses. Her mask was partially torn but it’s not enough to reveal her face, nor her identity. Sakisama touched Utami’s chin, gently nudging her to rise again. The former Crimson Queen’s tears were dried up at this point and she bore no expression on her face, only pure stoicism. Sakisama then pointed to the scissors that have impaled the mat, implying the obvious.

Sakisama: Utami-chan, your first task as my servant will be finishing this job.

Utami replied with an obedient nod as she reached down to get her scissors back. She was ready to descend upon the fallen figure of her former bodyguard but suddenly Himeka Arita made a dash at the ring to fight back! The crowd let out a cheer in favor of The Jumbo Princess… but their hopes died down immediately as Sakisama nailed Himeka with an Academy Award Kick that sent her down and staring at the lights once again!

Sakisama: If there’s one thing I hate more than ugliness, that would be insolence. Himeka, you cow, you should’ve known your place and stayed down. Only then you could’ve saved yourself from further humiliation and punishment. What a shame! But no, you’re not getting off that easy. I decided that you’re going to stay and watch as Utami reveals the identity of your friend to the world.

As Utami rained down with punches on her former bodyguard to pacify her, Sakisama raised the chin of Himeka with her boot, then gracefully wrapped her long legs around Himeka’s head and throat to keep her in a chokehold.

Nigel McGuinness: Sakisama has got Himeka locked in Versailles Choke!

Mauro Ranallo: This … this is horrible.

Himeka barely had the energy to move in the first place, but the submission move effectively killed any chances of her going anywhere. Himeka tried to close her eyes but Sakisama reached to her with her arms and kept them forcibly open as well.

Eventually, after the masked figure is once again unconscious, Utami cut her mask in half and her face was revealed to be none other than Maika!

Mauro Ranallo: Oh no. Now I understand why poor Himeka was so adamant on protecting her.

Mauro Ranallo: Ladies and gentlemen, the identity of Utami’s masked bodyguard has just been revealed as Maika. A former member of Donna Del Mondo faction in Japan which she had been a part of together with Himeka, who was also her best friend.

Himeka, with the last drops of her energy, tried to reach her unconscious friend but eventually passed out from the chokehold Sakisama continued to hold her in. After that, she broke the hold and got up with Utami doing the same, walking back to Sakisama as her new servant.

Sakisama: She wanted to save her best friend, isn’t that so sad? Hime-chan, you’re not hearing this but Mai-chan wanted nothing but to be even more. That’s why she came all the way from Japan to serve the foolish Utami-chan together with you. Well, I don’t think you reciprocated her feelings anyway so no harm done, right?

A sick chuckle left her mouth once again.

Sakisama: Don’t be sad. It’s only a tragedy if you see it coming in the first place.

Sakisama contemplated dropping the microphone to the floor and taking her leave, but raised it to her lips again to get her last words in.

Sakisama: EBWF will be purged of those pretenders who claim to be beautiful and strong. The way I see it, me and Utami are the only ones who fit that mold. Utami-chan has a long way to go, but as long as she walks this path with me, she will be my most beautiful rose. The spring has arrived EBWF! It will be the longest spring of your lives.

Now she dropped the microphone and moved to leave the ring. But she took a stop as Utami herself, as an act of subservience, widened the gap between the ropes to make it easier for Sakisama to leave. Sakisama patted Utami’s head once again after stepping onto the apron and then they took their leave together. They walked back on the ramp to heavy boos and Sakisama stopped in the entrance stage before taking one last bow like a theater actress, welcoming the boos of the masses she considered weak and ugly. Then, they disappeared from sight completely as they went to the back.

MATCH THREE

When Warfare returned from the commercial break, Christopher Daniels was on his way to the ring for the next match. Once Daniels was in the ring, “The Truth Reigns” hit and the crowd booed as Roman Reigns headed to the ring.

Mauro Ranallo: And here comes Roman Reigns, wrestling for the first time since unsuccessfully challenging The Miz for the EBWF World Championship at Fallout!

Nigel McGuinness: Roman is extremely frustrated that he is not the EBWF World Champion, and I’m sure he’ll be looking to take that frustration out on Christopher Daniels here tonight!

After Reigns had entered the bell, the referee called for the bell. Reigns charged towards Daniels, going for a clothesline, but Daniels ducked underneath it, then spun around and hit Reigns with a series of punches. Daniels went to whip Reigns into the corner, but Roman reversed it, sending Daniels into the corner before hitting a corner clothesline. As Daniels stumbled out of the corner, Reigns lifted him over his shoulders, going for a Samoan drop… but Daniels wriggled free, then hit Reigns with a dropkick to the back, knocking Reigns into the corner!

Nigel McGuinness: Great counter by Christopher Daniels! That could swing the momentum in his favor!

As Reigns moved out of the corner, Daniels hit him with a series of punches, then went to whip him against the ropes… but Roman reversed the Irish whip, sending Daniels into the ropes. As Daniels ran back towards him, Reigns hit a big boot, knocking Daniels down to the mat. Reigns then dragged Daniels towards the edge of the ring and placed his head on the bottom rope, before rolling out of the ring and hitting Daniels with the Drive By!

Mauro Ranallo: A vicious Drive By from Roman Reigns… that almost took Daniels’ head off!

Reigns hooked the leg and the referee counted - 1… 2… Daniels kicked out! Reigns grabbed Daniels and pummeled him with a series of punches against the mat, then pulled Daniels to his feet and lifted him up over his shoulders. Reigns lifted Daniels up… and threw him out of the ring! As Daniels landed on the outside, Reigns followed him out of the ring and whipped him into the steel steps, then threw Daniels back into the ring. Reigns then re-entered the ring and waited for Daniels to get to his feet, then leapt in the air and hit Daniels with the Superman Punch! He hooked the leg once more and the referee counted - 1… 2… Daniels kicked out!

Nigel McGuinness: Roman Reigns is absolutely dominating this match! Christopher Daniels is in all kinds of trouble!

As Reigns got to his feet, he signaled for the Spear, then crouched down, watching his opponent and waiting for him to get back up. When Daniels was on his feet, Reigns charged towards him, going for the Spear… but Daniels moved out of the way, and Reigns hit the ring post instead! Daniels then grabbed Reigns and hit him with the Angel’s Wings! He hooked the leg and the referee counted - 1… 2… Reigns kicked out!

Mauro Ranallo: Roman kicks out just in time! I can’t believe that didn’t get a 3 count, Nigel!

Daniels shook his head in frustration, then dragged Reigns to his feet and hit a swinging neckbreaker before climbing to the top rope. Daniels went for the Best Moonsault Ever… but Reigns got his knees up and blocked it! Both men got to their feet and Reigns hit a second Superman Punch, then as Daniels stumbled to his feet, Reigns ran against the ropes and charged towards him, hitting The Spear! He hooked the leg and the referee counted - 1… 2… 3!

Nigel McGuinness: It’s over! Roman Reigns gets the victory!

The referee called for the bell and raised Roman’s arm in victory. As Reigns celebrated, “I Came To Play” by Downstait hit and the crowd cheered as The Miz ran down to the ring. As soon as Miz entered the ring, he charged towards Reigns and the two men began exchanging right hands back and forth. The referee tried to get in the middle of them, but Reigns shoved him aside, and the two men continued brawling.

Nigel McGuinness: Look at the fury in both men’s eyes, Mauro… this isn’t just a feud, Miz and Reigns hate each other!

A group of referees, road agents and security personnel rushed down the ramp, separating Miz and Reigns. The crowd booed and began chanting “let them fight!” As Reigns was restrained on one side of the ring, Miz was taken out of the ring, but suddenly Reigns broke free and ran across the ring, leapt over the top rope and dived onto Miz! The two men continued brawling on the ramp before being separated once again. Warfare went off the air as both Miz and Reigns were dragged away from each other.
