The draw for the group stage was held on October 1, 2020.

A number of intriguing match-ups have been thrown together in the group stage, with Lionel Messi locking horns with his arch rival Cristiano Ronaldo in Group G, as Barcelona and Juventus collide.

 

Manchester United will go head-to-head with Paris Saint-Germain again and Neymar et al will no doubt be keen for revenge having been dumped out of last season’s competition in the last 16 by the Red Devils.

Liverpool, meanwhile, face into games against Ajax in Group D and the reigning champions Bayern will have to overcome Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid, who now have the potency of Luis Suarez in attack.

WWE NXT Results—Wednesday, November 4, 2020
Dakota Kai def. Ember Moon

After her star-making performance last week, Raquel Gonzalez seems out of place just standing ringside during a Dakota Kai match. She’s NXT’s version of Wardlow.

WWE wasted very little time taking the shine off a returning Ember Moon with this shocking results

KUSHIDA def. Cameron Grimes

Matches like this can go a long way in reminding WWE that Cameron Grimes is more than a midcard comedy heel with a funny accent.

The fact that KUSHIDA seems like he’s in a holding pattern tells me the same can be said about current NXT champion Finn Balor. (Results)

Drake Maverick and Killian Dain vs. Ever-Rise; Pat McAfee Calls out Undisputed Era

Pat McAfee and his new crew received the picture-in-picture treatment for their entrance, right up until they actually hit the ring.

NXT could have found better chum bait than the rising team of Drake Maverick and Killian Dain for this segment.

Pete Dunn’s expression didn’t change throughout this entire segment. (Results)

The promo after this match marks the first time in my life I ever chose a Pat McAfee promo over a Young Bucks match.

Toni Storm def. Shotzi Blackheart

They need to raise the stakes of this Punk Rock-centric match and ban the loser from wearing Doc Martens.

READ  NXT Takeover 31 results

This match had no business on free TV.

I would have been perfectly fine with the double-countout they teased. Shotzi deserved it.

Shotzi Blackheart looked quite foolish as a grown babyface sobbing over a Fisher Price toy. (Results)

Thatch as Thatch Can—Live Exhibition

All things considered, Timothy Thatcher is really an engaging teacher. I actually learned something during this segment.

Timothy Thatcher’s reasoning that somebody tapping for their lives (during an exhibition!) could be luring him into a false sense of security is as cynical as it gets.

Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dream

Velveteen Dream is a big fan of NWO tribute merchandise.

Tommaso Ciampa and KUSHIDA one-on-one has such potential to be a great NXT TakeOver match.

READ  Lewandowski: most decorated player of the year.

It’s fair to question whether or not Velveteen Dream will win another match in 2020. Good thing he’s still young, because at this point, Dream may not win for the rest of his 20s. (Results)

Monday Night Raw results 3rd November 2020

Braun Strowman def. Keith Lee and Sheamus via pinfall after a running powerslam on Sheamus. As Lee was setting up for a Spirit Bomb on Strowman, Sheamus ran in and hit a Brogue Kick. That allowed Strowman to catch Sheamus with the running powerslam for the win, qualifying him for the Survivor Series team. After the match, Styles encouraged the team to shake hands and work together, leading Strowman to tell Lee they need to put their differences aside because he wants to win at the pay-per-view. Strowman and Lee shook hands and Sheamus and Strowman hugged after briefly arguing, but Sheamus turned and hit a Brogue Kick, knocking Strowman from the ring. Lee then clotheslined Sheamus to the floor and Styles dropkicked Lee out of the ring next before complaining that the team couldn’t get along. Later in the show, Sheamus approached McIntyre and pitched them joining up again — starting with McIntyre on Team Raw, but McIntyre politely refused the offer. (Monday Night Raw)

 

Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss hosted a Firefly Fun House segment. The two focused on Orton with Wyatt saying The Fiend couldn’t forget what happened when Orton burned down the Wyatt Compound in 2017. Bliss then did a “magic trick” where she appeared to spit blood. Bliss was also confronted backstage by Nikki Cross later in the show. Cross was scared off when Bliss looked up at her with glowing eyes. (Monday Night Raw)

Jeff Hardy def. Elias in a guitar on a pole match. Elias took a shot to the nose that drew a little blood early in the match and responded by tossing a stool to knock Hardy off the top rope as he climbed the ropes to retrieve the guitar. That only delayed the inevitable as Hardy eventually grabbed the guitar and jumped from the top rope to smash it on Elias’ back and score the pinfall victory. (Monday Night Raw)

Women’s Tag Team Championship — Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler (c) def. Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke via submission to retain the titles when Baszler locked Brooke in the Kirifuda Clutch. Lana came to ringside to watch the other members of Team Raw in the match, drawing the ire of Jax and Baszler immediately. Lana would distract Baszler multiple times, including as she tried to lock Brooke in the Kirifuda Clutch the first time. That allowed Brooke to score a roll-up for a near fall. After Baszler kicked out, she locked in the hold for the finish. | Nia Jax def Lana via pinfall after a Samoan drop. Jax dominated the match, brutalizing Lana from the opening bell and never letting up. Jax finally ended the match with a Samoan drop. After the match, Jax returned to the ring, calling Lana pathetic before the weekly Samoan drop through the announce table.

Bobby Lashley def. R-Truth via submission with the Hurt Lock in a non-title match. Truth told Lashley that they’re both champions and there’s no need for either man to get hurt. Truth then laid down and waited to be pinned, but Lashley wasn’t having it, scoring a near-immediate win with the Hurt Lock. | 24/7 Championship — Drew Gulak def. R-Truth (c) to win the title. Gulak tried to run in after the match and pin Truth for the 24/7 title, but Lashley slammed him and locked in the Hurt Lock. Lashley then threw Gulak’s unconscious body on top of Truth for the pin.

The Hurt Business (Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin) def. The New Day via pinfall (c) in a non-title match after Benjamin hit Paydirt on Xavier Woods. The lengthy match began after New Day interrupted a VIP Lounge segment by The Hurt Business. The two teams went back-and-forth until a wild sprint finish that saw Benjamin hit Paydirt to allow Alexander to score the pinfall.

Ricochet def. Tucker Knight via pinfall after hitting Recoil. Ricochet won very quickly, but Mustafa Ali had come to ringside before the match. Retribution jumped into the ring after the match, with T-Bar throwing Ricochet from the ring before attacking Knight. Ricochet was then thrown back in the ring, where Retribution circled him. Ricochet fought back, but the numbers game caught up and Ali told him, “No sin is forgiven, until it is punished.”
