2020 WWE Clash of Champions results,

SmackDown Tag Team Championship — Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro (c) vs. Lucha House Party: Kalisto and Lince Dorado were teaming with Gran Metalik on the outside, an odd choice given Kalisto and Dorado butting heads repeatedly in recent weeks. LHP got off to a good start, taking out Cesaro with fast-paced offense before Nakamura was able to take over the action on Dorado. After an extended heat segment on Dorado, Kalisto finally received a hot tag, leading to a wild spot where Dorado executed a dive to the outside and Cesaro was holding Kalisto, allowing his partner to execute a tornado DDT. A wild stretch of near falls ended when Nakamura hit the running knee as Cesaro used the giant swing on Kalisto to score the victory. This was a very solid kickoff match that got very hot down the stretch before the expected win for the champs. Nakamura & Cesaro (c) def. Lucha House Party via pinfall to retain the titles.

Intercontinental Championship — Jeff Hardy (c) vs. Sami Zayn vs. AJ Styles (Ladder Match): As expected, ladders were brought into the ring very quickly, with Hardy taking the first big bump of the match, diving onto an upside down, open ladder after Styles sidestepped. That was part of Styles being the dominant offensive force early in the match, bouncing Zayn off a ladder in the corner as well. Styles also threw Hardy from a ladder early, as both men were climbing toward the titles, but that was not enough to keep Hardy down. Zayn hit an exploder on Styles onto a ladder as the brutality continued. There was a great moment where Zayn was alone in the ring, climbing a ladder before Styles threw a ladder like a javelin from the outside of the ring to knock him to the canvas. Hardy would eventually hit Zayn with a Twist of Fate before climbing the ladder, seemingly ready to grab the titles before Zayn started to tip the ladder over. Hardy tried to climb down the other side of the ladder upside down but took a nasty spill to the floor in the process — one of the more innovative bumps in a match full of nasty spills. Hardy eventually drove Zayn through a ladder suspended between the announce table and ring apron with a swanton from the top of another ladder.

Zayn pulled a pair of handcuffs out, used one to tie Hardy to a ladder — putting the other end of the handcuff through Hardy’s ear piercing. As he tried to handcuff Styles to the ropes, Styles attacked him, so Zayn handcuffed his own arm to Styles, leading Styles to knock him out and try to climb the ladder with Zayn on his back. Hardy climbed into the ring, still with the ladder cuffed to his ear and Zayn uncuffed himself from Styles before cuffing Styles to the ladder. Zayn then used the moment, with both opponents incapacitated, to climb the ladder on the opposite side of Styles to grab the belts and win the titles. Just a fantastic and brutal match with a fantastic finish that showed Zayn as a brilliant jerk, willing to do anything to get the job done. Zayn def. Hardy (c) and Styles to win the title.

24/7 Championship: R-Truth was walking through the backstage area and walked into the referee’s lounge. As he left, Gulak was doing lunges in the background, realized his opportunity and rolled up Truth to win the title. Gulak was being interviewed about winning the title earlier in the night when Truth interrupted, hit him with a large metal bowl and scored the pin to win the title back. Gulak def. R-Truth (c) via pinfall to win the title | R-Truth def. Gulak (c) via pinfall to win the title

Raw Women’s Championship — Asuka (c) vs. Zelina Vega: Vega went after Asuka’s arm early before the champion briefly took over. As Asuka followed Vega to the outside of the ring, Vega took advantage by pulling Asuka into the ring steps. Vega remained focused on Asuka’s arm, locking up the limb or driving it into the canvas at every opportunity. Vega came close down the stretch to scoring a sneaky pin after all her arm work, but Asuka slipped her into the Asuka Lock to force the submission. After the match, Asuka called Vega a “firecracker” and offered some compliments, but Vega responded with a kick to the gut. An expected result, but a better than expected effort from Vega as she looked very crisp in a well-laid out match. Asuka (c) def. Vega via submission.

United States Championship — Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Apollo Crews: Crews got off to a hot start, using speed and agility to offset the power game of Lashley. Lashley countered an up-and-over in the corner to take over the offense. Lashley tried to run Crews into the ring post on the outside, but ended up being the one to go into the post instead, allowing Crews to go on the comeback, including hitting an impressive press slam on Lashley. After a standing shooting star from Crews, he went up top and hit a frog splash, but Lashley managed to kick out at two. It only took one misstep from Crews, however, and Lashley was able to secure the submission with the Hurt Lock. Unfortunately, it’s hard to get excited for Lashley vs. Crews or really anything involving Crews and the Hurt Business after weeks and weeks of seeing variations of the same match. Still, a solid enough in-ring effort. Lashley (c) def. Crews via submission to retain the title.

Raw Tag Team Championship — The Street Profits (c) vs. Andrade & Angel Garza: Angelo Dawkins exploded with a big dropkick after being briefly isolated at the start of the match and Montez Ford followed up with a flip over the ropes into a dropkick of his own on Andrade. As Ford was about to get rolling, Garza grabbed Andrade from outside the ring after an Irish whip, pulling him out of trouble and tagging in to take over on Ford, showing their strengthening work as a tag team after Zelina Vega abandoned them. Dawkins took a hot tag and started to take over the match, but a blind tag led to Garza hitting a top-rope Spanish fly on Ford moments later. Ford took heaps of offense from the challengers before another hot tag to Dawkins, who hit a spinebuster for the win even though it appeared clear that Andrade kicked out. It appeared Garza was hurt during the match and the referee’s signal that an injury occurred was generally ignored, leading to him having to call an end to the match despite the kick out. After the match, Garza was shown being tended to by trainers. Generally a good match, but the finishing stretch was awkward as everyone tried to adjust on the fly and it wasn’t handled smoothly, though that’s not anything to hold against anyone involved. The Street Profits (c) def. Andrade & Garza via pinfall to retain the titles.

SmackDown Women’s Championship — Bayley (c) vs. Asuka (c): Bayley came out to cut an in-ring promo after her match with Nikki Cross had been canceled. Bayley asked to be announced the winner by forfeit in an “open challenge” when Asuka came to the ring and it was announced that an impromptu title match would take place. The action went outside the ring where Asuka dropped Bayley with a German suplex. Bayley then used a steel chair to hit Asuka, drawing a disqualification to allow her to retain her championship. As Bayley celebrated her brilliant decision, she was hit from behind with a steel chair by Sasha Banks. Bayley turned things around on Banks — who was still in a neck brace — throwing Banks into the ring and grabbing a steel chair. Banks kicked out Bayley’s legs before laying into her with several shots with a kendo stick. Bayley was able to roll out of the ring before Banks could hit her again with a chair, taking her title and retreating. This was a nice little segment after the Cross vs. Bayley match fell through. The match was nothing special, but Banks’ attack was a welcome boost to the situation. Asuka (c) def. Bayley (c) via disqualification.

WWE Championship — Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton (Ambulance Match): McIntyre opened the match with a series of punches and kicks, taking the fight right to Orton. Orton went for an early RKO, but McIntyre defended before Orton used the middle rope to score a low blow as McIntyre tried to re-enter the ring and then hit a hanging DDT on the champion. Orton lined up a punt but his ankle was grabbed by Big Show, who returned for the first time since Orton punted him months ago on Raw. Show chokeslammed Orton through the announce table. Show’s interference allowed McIntyre to take over, attacking Orton and dragging him to the ambulance before lawn darting him into the side of the vehicle. Orton was able to fight back, attacking the injured jaw of McIntyre. The two brawled into the back of the ambulance before exiting and battling into the cab before McIntyre hit a Claymore, knocking the ambulance door off.

Orton and McIntyre battled into the backstage area before Orton was attacked by Christian, another man who Orton has punted during his reign of terror in 2020. The fight returned to the entrance area where McIntyre took Orton onto the hood of the ambulance, but Orton was able to slam McIntyre backward onto the windshield, the glass cutting McIntyre in several spots on his back. After Orton knocked McIntyre from the top of the ambulance, Orton was blindsided by Sweet Chin Music from Shawn Michaels, allowing Michaels to push Orton off the top of the ambulance. Orton fought back and was about to close McIntyre in the ambulance, but McIntyre was able to escape before hitting a Claymore. As he loaded Orton into the ambulance, he stopped, dragged Orton partway out, landed a punt and shut Orton in the ambulance to win. Ric Flair was then shown in the driver’s seat, taking Orton away. The whole structure of the match was odd, with the various types of outside interference. It made sense in a way to have Orton pay for his sins, but didn’t keep McIntyre strong in the end. Not bad chaos, but a little strange. McIntyre (c) def. Orton to retain the title.

Universal Championship — Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso — Uso and Reigns immediately locked up in a collar and elbow with Reigns pushing Uso into the corner. The two then stared each other down. Uso then started to try to use speed and misdirection to avoid the champ’s offense, but Reigns quickly took back over, shoving Uso into the ropes and saying, “I told you.” Reigns continued to dominate, cutting off every moment of Uso’s attempts to come back before Uso landed a flurry of strikes, ending in a Samoan drop for a two-count. Reigns struck back with a big Superman punch, but Uso rolled out of the ring to avoid the count. Reigns continued to lash out, battering Uso and taunting him, taking chops and battering his cousin with massive punches. Uso made a hot comeback, knocking Reigns from the ring, hitting a suicide dive and bringing him back into the ring before hitting a superkick for a two count. Uso reversed the spear into a pin for a near fall before he hit a superkick and top-rope splash for a near fall, but Reigns’ kick out also involved a low blow.

Reigns began to demand Uso call him his chief and said, “Acknowledge me as your tribal chief.” After Uso refused, Reigns hit a spear. Reigns then held Uso’s face in front of the camera and demanded Uso tell the world this is his camera, his WWE and that he is the tribal chief. Uso responded, “not today,” frustrating Reigns, who told Heyman that all that mattered was Uso acknowledging it. Reigns then dropped punch after punch on Reigns until the referee pulled him off. Reigns told the referee not to address him again or he would no longer have a job. Jimmy Uso ran to ringside, saying he was going to throw in the towel, but Jey told him not to do it. Jey begged him not to throw in the towel, so Reigns pulled him to the center of the ring and continued dropping punches until Jimmy threw in the towel for the ifnish. Jimmy said, “We’re family, what the hell is wrong with you. You’re the chief, you’re the tribal chief, just leave him alone.” This was a wonderful brawl and really drove home Reigns’ new heel character, establishing him as a remorseless monster who cares more about his place in the world than “doing the right thing.” Uso played his part wonderfully, working as the underdog and battling as the underdog who had no real hope of beating his bigger, stronger, better cousin. I wasn’t completely in love with the finish, but there’s something to be said for Uso battering his family to the point where someone had to step in and make the sane decision to end things. Roman Reigns (c) def. Jey Uso via stoppage to retain the title.

David de Gea ‘could leave Manchester United on loan’

Wisdom Nwachukwu

Published

on

Manchester United could reportedly loan out goalkeeper David de Gea ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

The 30-year-old was between the sticks for his team’s Europa League clash with Granada on Thursday night but appears to have dropped behind Dean Henderson in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Henderson is expected to start Sunday’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur, with De Gea set to drop back down to the bench.

The Spain international has recently been linked with a move away from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side, but he still has more than two years left to run on a lucrative contract at Old Trafford.

According to ESPN, Man United are unlikely to find a buyer for De Gea in the upcoming market and could therefore decide to loan him out for the 2021-22 season.

NXT takeover stand and deliver results 7th April 2021

Here are the results for the NXT takeover pay per view

Zoey Stark vs. Toni Storm (Pre-show): Stark continued to impress as she has in a series of matches with stop stars, hitting some nice early moves, including a good-looking springboard missile dropkick. Storm took over the match after the strong start, using some power offense with snap suplexes and a body slam, but before she could capitalize, Stark hit a superplex from the second rope to start a comeback. A half-nelson suplex set up a running knee for the first convincing near fall of the match. Stark continued to keep up the pressure until Storm hit a series of German suplexes before going for Storm Zero, which was countered awkwardly by Stark into a small package for the victory.  (NXT takeover)

Pete Dunne vs. Kushida: An exchange of submission attempts opened the match as both men were attempting to establish their technical superiority early. Kushida had a small edge in the grappling until the action spilled outside where Dunne hit an X-plex onto the ring apron. Dunne brutally went after the arm of Kushida for a brief run, but Kushida fired up and ran the length of the entrance ramp for a kick. After an exchange of strikes, Dunne went back to work on the arm — and the fingers — of Kushida.

The action continued to flow back and forth, with Dunne’s aggression being met by Kushida blow-for-blow. Kushida hit a superplex while holding his Hoverboard Lock, switching to an armbar, but Dunne managed to get a foot on the ropes for a break. Kushida continued going for Dunne’s arms, locking in another Hoverboard Lock and then switching arms with the hold when Dunne reached the ropes. Dunne went back to the fingers, softening up Kushida for a kick to the head and Bitter End to bring the match to a close.

Leon Ruff vs. Isaiah “Swerve” Scott vs. Bronson Reed vs. Cameron Grimes vs. Dexter Lumis vs. LA Knight (Gauntlet Eliminator for North American championship opportunity): Scott jumped Ruff before the match, getting off to an early advantage when they were the first two men in. Ruff eventually hit a cutter on Scott, springboarding off the announce table to hit the move. That wasn’t enough to keep Scott down, as he continued to blitz Ruff with big moves until Ruff countered a top rope powerbomb into a rana before Reed entered the match. Reed ran wild until hitting a double-German suplex on Scott and Ruff. Grimes came into the match and paid off Scott to help him go at the other competitors. During Lumis’ entrance, Scott was able to quickly pin Ruff to take him out of the match. Lumis delivered suplex after suplex until running into Reed with the two big men exchanging strikes and neither getting the upper hand. Knight made his entrance as the final man into the match and soon pinned Lumis as Lumis had Grimes locked in Silence. Reed eliminated Knight moments later after a senton, leaving Scott, Reed and Grimes as the final three in the match. (NXT takeover)

Grimes and Scott teamed up against Reed, but Reed shrugged off strikes from both men until the temporary alliance fell apart and Scott rolled up Grimes with a handful of tights — reversing Grimes’ own attempt to grab Scott’s tights in a pin — for the elimination. Reed went to the top rope, but Scott caught him with a kick and then slammed Reed from the top rope onto the ring apron. Scott followed up with a 450 splash for a near fall. Reed fired up through a trio of House Call kicks from Scott before hitting Tsunami for the victory.

NXT UK Championship — WALTER (c) vs. Tommaso Ciampa: Ciampa looked to try to neutralize WALTER’s strength with speed early but eventually snapped and blitzed WALTER with a flurry of strikes. That only served to anger the champion, leading him to deliver a series of titanic chops. WALTER tried to deliver another chop as Ciampa was leaned on the announce table, but Ciampa moved out of the way, causing WALTER to chop through a portion of the table. Ciampa tried to take advantage of the now-injured hand of WALTER but ran into a big boot. When WALTER had trouble locking in submissions due to not being able to use any strength in his grip, he resorted to delivering more big kicks to the face of Ciampa. Ciampa delivered clothesline after clothesline, trying to take WALTER off his feet, sending the champion stumbling before falling into the ropes where Ciampa’s clotheslines continued until WALTER delivered a chop. Ciampa came right back with yet another clothesline, finally driving WALTER to the mat. After another flurry of offense, Ciampa hit the Fairy Tale Ending for a near fall.

WALTER came back with an attempt at a choke before a German suplex and lariat for a two count of his own. Ciampa continued his incredible performance, blasting WALTER with strikes and forcing the big man to turtle up. Another strike exchange followed shortly after before WALTER focused in on the neck of Ciampa with a series of stomps and powerbombs, again resulting in a near fall. Walter hit another suplex and a big chop, this time putting Ciampa down for the three count, retaining his title.  (NXT takeover)

Tag Team Championship — MSK vs. Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Legado Del Fantasma: This match was for the vacant title. Pure fire from the jump with everyone in the match flying around the ring at full speed. Every team in the match got early spots to shit, with Grizzled Young Veterans taking the early action before MSK took over and Legado del Fantasma finally took control with simultaneous dives and then a pair of Van Terminators (without the chair) on Nash Carter for a near fall. Legado continued their run of control by continuing to take the fight to Carter until he finally made a tag to Wes Lee, who took out all four men on the other teams before a huge dive and a series of backflips into a Pele kick to the back of James Drake’s head. (NXT takeover)

Zack Gibson finally involved himself to take out Lee, holding his hand inside the turnbuckle pad so Drake could deliver a dropkick to the already inured hand. Gibson locked up Lee’s hand and Lee was ready to tap until Carter was able to crawl through a Drake choke to grab his partner’s hand. Things broke down to GYV vs. MSK, with Lee hitting a double cutter and then a twisting blockbuster while Carter had Gibson lifted up to score the win and take home the titles.

Women’s Championship — Io Shirai (c) vs. Raquel Gonzalez: Gonzalez used her power early, forcing Shirai to have to resort to slick defensive maneuvers and quickness, hitting a rana and then taking the fight to Gonzalez in the corner. Gonzalez caught a Shirai stomp and tried to reverse the momentum but found herself on the outside, getting knocked to the floor after a Shirai asai moonsault. Gonzalez was finally able to slow down the champ by driving her into the ring post before going back to the ring where she began to toss Shirai around the ring.

Every time it seemed Gonzalez had Shirai on the defensive, the champion would find a way to counter and launch into her own high impact offense, including a Code Red for a near fall. Gonzalez caught Shirai on the top rope and tried to walk her to the center of the ring for a chokeslam, but Shirai managed to counter and roll into a crossface, forcing Gonzalez to crawl to the ropes for the escape. Shirai followed up with a moonsault from the top rope onto the entrance ramp. Shirai wandered out of the ring area before appearing on top of the giant skull that made up the set background on the ramp, hitting a diving crossbody onto Gonzalez. (NXT takeover)

Gonzalez refused to stay down, coming back to hit a chokeslam outside the ring and throwing the champion in for a near fall. Moments later, Gonzalez managed to hit a big lariat and then another chokeslam to score the pinfall and win the belt.

Jesse Lingard Scores as West Ham beat Wolves

Jesse Lingard is currently trending on Twitter following the stunning goal he scored for West Ham against Wolves on Monday night, April 5.

Lingard signed for the Hammers on a short-term loan deal in January, after the Man United academy product was not given an opportunity to shine under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Fast forward two months, and Lingard is one of the most in-form players in the Premier League.

He opened the scoring for West Ham away at Wolves with a stunning solo goal showing so much confidence as he carried the ball forward from behind the halfway-line before holding his nerve and beating Rui Patricio.
