Raw recap & reactions (Nov. 28, 2022): A blood clot in The Bloodline


Kevin Owens interrupts a great moment for The Bloodline. Sami Zayn, still excited Survivor Series, celebrated with Jimmy and Jey Uso, expressing their love and loyalty to each other. Jey and Sami hug happily as all three men say The Bloodline has no clots in their system. Actually, they said that there are no cracks, but there are blood clots, it does not crack.

As the three formed the happiest group hug ever, they looked at the lone Sequoia. Solo didn’t laugh and resisted their request. But then he moved a bit and looked like he would actually hug his brothers and his adopted brother. But then KO’s music played in West Virginia and I, along with the crowd, felt disappointed. How dare you, Kevin.

Kevin didn’t want to scrap with Sami. Actually he is happy for Sami. He’s glad the world finally got to see Sami’s greatness. But he has done it with Zayn. Not just as friends, but as enemies. He doesn’t want to fight him, fight him, or ride the road together. Sami is also cool because he doesn’t need KO anymore; He has a new family. KO, always the downer, reminds Sami that no matter what he or anyone from The Bloodline says, it’s not their real family.

Continuing the fantastic character work done in this story, the Uso’s stepped up to defend Sami. Jay told Sami that KO and he No problem fighting KO on Sami’s behalf. A fantastic progression for two people who have always been at odds, and a great moment showing Jey’s love for Sami. In a family, when one of you has a beef, you have a beef. And in wrestling, nothing says “I love you” like fighting on someone’s behalf.

The KO and Zayn stuff felt real in a way only real friends can. They dropped the pretense and talked to each other like people. That part of the segment is worth your time, even if you miss everything before or after the match.

Oh but after the match? Excellent. What started the back and forth over the question of how much KO could endure? He hurt his lower back, took several superkicks to the chin—including one that actually flew—and, of course, got into some Bloodline shenanigans. Jimmy tried to interrupt, Solo swiped his feet on the ring apron and Sami coached Jey on the outside. Jey worked over KO’s back after Sami pointed him out and finally betrayed Owens with that back when he went for a pop up powerbomb. At that moment I thought J had a W in his hand.

But Owens didn’t give up. He took all that punishment from his body, took a massive interruption from Solo, and kept going. He played a possum, escaped Jey’s splash attempt and finished the Uso with a stunner. Kevin immediately got out of Daz as the rest of Bloodline watched in shock.

Everything including this angle is the best episode of WWE television at the moment, so the more we get, the better. Saving this for the main event was a good idea, especially after all the emotions we got earlier. Regardless of the rumours, I wonder what the next part of the story is and how it plays out. Sami’s loyalty is solidified (right?) and the Usos have a tag title match with Elias & Riddle next week. Perhaps this is setting up the short term for another confrontation between Sami and KO that only happens because Roman Reigns demands it. Sami says he’s done with Kevin but his loyalty to Roman is the one thing that makes him go back on his word. My guess is that Jimmy will KO next, then solo, and neither will get the job done. Roman forces Sami into battle and then we leave.

Whatever it is, I’m down because they have me hook, line and sinker.



Rhea Ripley wrestled Mia Yim rawThe first bout of I kept asking myself why none of the OC members came with Mia since she was working with them as a solution to “Rhea’s problem”. Then Dominic joined, who brought out AJ Styles and everything clicked into place. Needless to say, the Mia vs. Rhea match ended in a disqualification but the eight-man tag match came out of the scrapheap.

But we know what it looks like when the OC goes up against the three male members of Judgment Day. Yes, I know what I wrote and I am not changing it. Anyway, with that in mind, the most excitement came from seeing those two square off in regards to the tag match. or at any time either of them did anything in the match. Whether it’s Rhea beating Karl Anderson for a while or Mia powerslamming Finn Balor. But as Michin lays hands on Dom, Rhea hits Riptide. Not to be confused with Mami’s Man.

I want more of this and thankfully, this feud isn’t over yet. If Mia is the solution, we need proof.


It’s time. If Street Profits can’t get those tag titles, break them up for a solo run because they’re both ready. Angelo Dawkins is looking better and better while Montez Ford, returning from injury, is stepping up his game. This week, he showed that Bianca Bellair isn’t the only one in their house with the ability to carry Otis. While not nearly as impressive as that feat, Montez Power beat the big man with ease. Profit looked great in the match against Alpha Academy, I think the writing is on the wall.


Speaking of moving forward, Austin Theory is done with everyone. His convention filled with promos celebrating him regaining the United States Championship. Of course he rubbed it in everyone’s face, which is his right. But he also has a chip on his shoulder the size of a golden nugget. Seth Rollins dressed like he was working the Victoria’s Secret runway and challenged. The new champion said sure but on his time. Of course, Seth calls him a kid, which is always under Theory’s fairly thin skin. This is its kryptonite and probably the main story device for its title. He will either overcome the shortcomings or succumb to them.

A good segment not only for these two, but a look at why Theory’s second run with the US title is different from his first.

Me Against The World

Dexter Loomis’ match against The Miz was long overdue. It’s not an indictment of the men involved since both of them came to play – no pun intended. Loomis getting a real grip on his skull was a funny moment. But this is a psychopath vs. anything goes match, so anything that goes more than a few minutes feels like a waste of time. Especially since we all know the outcome of Adam Pearce ringside, the contract is in hand and Miz is the bad guy at the end of a very long and boring story.

I am glad the exam is over.

Back for the first time

Candice LaRae comes back with a damage CTRL in her sights. Candice wants some revenge after the crew put her on the shelf for a month. First on her list? Dakota Kai. And the match started off perfectly with Candice attacking Dakota Kai as Kai entered. But she couldn’t maintain her aggression and energy once the match settled down. The fight became a wrestling match, and the story, at least at this point, told more of the former and less of the latter. I didn’t like this match because both women know what they are doing in the ring. But booking with time did them no favours.

Eye on this

Alexa Bliss is plotting. During her, Bianca and Asuka’s backstage interview, Alexa appeared disinterested and in her own world. Actually, this is not new. For the past few weeks, Alexa had wished they were anywhere else in the world rather than following Bianca’s lead. Bianca and Asuka finally hit it off this week, meaning a heel turn is possibly on the horizon.

Maybe I’m expecting a more exciting show with a really great outing survivor series, But all this made me feel unwelcome. Opening and closing works on every level, but that’s it rawbetween the which I want. There was nothing objectionable about it, but nothing really stood out. Not quite a 40 degree day, but nothing newsworthy. Really one of those episodes that made me pine for the two hour show. Briefly, son. Half as short and twice as strong.

Grade: B-

This is my standard and I stick to it. your turn
