Ali revealed as Retribution leader
Ali stood alongside Apollo Crews and Ricochet through the night, including joining his friends in refusing MVP’s offer to join The Hurt Business. After The Hurt Business picked up a win over Crews and Ricochet earlier in the night, Ali confronted the group backstage, saying he wanted Bobby Lashley and Shelton Benjamin in MVP’s corner for their match later in the night and made it clear he would be in the ring alone.

Mustafa Ali vs. MVP ended in a no contest after Retribution attacked: During the match, the lights flickered and Retribution members stormed ringside. MVP asked Ali to help The Hurt Business fight them off, which Ali initially agreed to, standing back-to-back with MVP, Benjamin and Lashley. Seconds later, Ali rolled out of the ring before telling Mace and T-Bar to attack. Retribution attacked The Hurt Business, taking them out before posing in the ring with Ali, who was revealed to be the group’s leader.

Most of the Retribution story has been missed opportunities and bad decisions, but Ali’s reveal as the group’s leader was a big step in the right direction. He has the past as SmackDown’s mysterious hacker — a gimmick that went nowhere before the reveal was even complete — and has spent months talking about not being utilized and featuring his work on Main Event. For guys who haven’t gotten a fair shake in the company despite being a talent in the ring and on the mic, Ali is a great fit for Retribution and gives them a passionate mouthpiece to help them with their undeniably awful promos over the past month. Grade: B+

Murphy and Seth Rollins brawl
Murphy & Seth Rollins def. Humberto Carrillo & Dominik Mysterio via pinfall after Murphy hit Carrillo with a jumping knee. Before the match, Murphy and Mysterio argued when Murphy told Rollins to apologize for his recent actions toward Aalyah Mysterio. The fighting continued during the match with Rollins trying to not allow a tag-in from Murphy. After Murphy won for his team, he stormed off, yelling about Rollins claiming to not need him. After the match, Rollins confronted Murphy backstage and said he had until 10 p.m. ET to apologize to him, a demand in which Aalyah later said she hoped Murphy would not cave.

At the end of the second hour, Murphy and Rollins were again in the room together, with Rollins demanding Murphy apologize or be broken. Murphy finally had enough, double-legging Rollins and attacking with punches before taking Rollins outside and brawling on the announce table. The battle continued with the pair going back and forth around the ring until Murphy grabbed a kendo stick and began to hit Rollins and demand he apologize to Aalyah. Rollins eventually did, saying he didn’t mean to bring her into this before begging Murphy to stop and saying he had done enough. After Murphy stopped, Rollins leaped from the canvas and dug his thumbs into Murphy’s eyes before returning fire with kendo stick shots of his own. As Rollins grabbed a steel chair, Aalyah ran to the ring and begged Rollins to stop before the rest of the Mysterios ran to the ring and Rollins walked away before Rey and Dominik made Aalyah leave.

The long tease is over. Murphy and Rollins are no more as the disciple has tired of his messiah’s abusive behavior. While it’s still unclear where they’re actually going with the Murphy/Aalyah relationship, it’s still a bit uncomfortable given the difference in age between the two. But the viciousness of Murphy’s attack to force Rollins’ apology and Rollins’ dastardly return attack was well-executed, and matches between Rollins and Murphy should be very good. Grade: B

 

What else happened on WWE Raw?
Randy Orton, Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler def. Drew McIntyre & The Street Profits via pinfall when Orton hit McIntyre with a RKO. Orton opened the show laying down a challenge to McIntyre for a Hell in a Cell match at the upcoming pay-per-view, leading to a backstage brawl between the two. The match was later made official for the Hell in a Cell card. In the main event, Orton hit McIntyre with a RKO for the win right after the WWE champion had laid out Roode with a Claymore.

Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke & Asuka def. Lana, Natalya & Zelina Vega via pinfall when Rose pinned Lana after a pump knee. The new weekly tradition of Lana getting pinned continued, and for the third time in the last month, she was then put through a table by Nia Jax after Jax and Shayna Baszler executed a post-match attack.

24/7 Championship — Drew Gulak def. R-Truth (c) via pinfall to win the title. Gulak posed as a masked janitor backstage before pinning Truth after Truth slipped on a bucket of water.

Kevin Owens called out Bray Wyatt. Wyatt was supposed to be a guest on “The KO Show,” but instead appeared on the Tron from the Firefly Fun House. Wyatt said Owens didn’t know what he’d gotten into with The Fiend, but would find out on SmackDown. As Owens tried to storm from the ring to find Wyatt, he was attacked by Aleister Black.

Keith Lee vs. Braun Strowman ended in a double count-out. Strowman demanded a match because there was no Raw Underground. Adam Pearce said it would have to be unsanctioned if they found an opponent. Lee volunteered and the two briefly battled before being counted out. They then continued to brawl until Lee drove Strowman off the entrance ramp with both crashing through tables.

24/7 Championship — R-Truth def. Drew Gulak (c) via pinfall to win the title. Truth ambushed Gulak backstage and pinned him inside a dumpster that also contained Akira Tozawa.

Bobby Lashley & Shelton Benjamin def. Ricochet & Apollo Crews via submission when Lashley put Crews in the Hurt Lock.

Women’s Tag Team Championship — Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler (c) def. The Riott Squad via submission to retain the titles when Baszler choked out Ruby Riott. Baszler brutalized Riott’s arm early in the match, making the match mostly two-on-one with the champs against Liv Morgan for a stretch. In the end, Baszler choked out Riott, refusing to break the hold as Morgan tried to pull her off after the bell.

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.
