Raw Preview: What will be the Extraordinary next step?

TLC Results – October 22nd, 2017

    

AJ Styles vs. Finn Balor
Electric atmosphere to start as they face off before the bell. Collar and elbow, pushing each other around the ring, but Balor breaks clean. Circling, back to the lockup and Finn gets a side headlock, takeover, AJ shoots him off, shoulder block and they stalemate. Test of strength, Balor fakes out to waistlock, standing switch, again, Styles escapes with a fireman’s carry takeover, trading headlocks for headscissors and again they stalemate!

 

Circling again, Finn in with a kidney shot, leapfrog, drop down, dropkick and AJ wipes him out! Lariat dodged, the enzuigiri connects and he takes the Phenomenal One down, setting up a Romero Special. Both legs in, arms one at a time and he rolls back into the full hold! Adjusting back down, adding a rear chinlock for a moment before he lets go and deathlocks the legs.

 

Styles is right near the ropes, however, and easily breaks. Jawbreaker connects, big chop, whip reversed, AJ gets a sunset flip but the Demon counters immediately with a dropkick! Styles to the outside and back in in time to counter a dive with a forearm smash! Off the ropes for a knee drop, a cover gets two and Balor gets back into it throwing hands. Whip across, AJ lands a kick and slingshots back in with a forearm… NOPE!

 

Running backbreaker, chest kick, Finn on the back foot here as they transition into slugging it out with forearms. Styles cuts the exchange early with a kick and a cover before backing the Demon into the corner with a palm strike. Back in the center of the ring, Balor throws hands and backs AJ off into the corner, kicking away. Break made, Styles lands a kick and big chop before going corner-to-corner with chops.

 

Whip across, up and cover and Finn returns the favor with a chop of his own! A flurry of punches into another chop, whip across, charging chop, whip reversed twice, Styles up top and Balor knocks him to the floor with a gamengiri! Off the ropes… TOPE CON GIRO! Back inside, the Sling Blade connects and Finn lies in wait only to charge right into Ushigoroshi!

 

Calling for the Styles Clash, Balor floats out but AJ catches him with the back suplex facebuster anyway and gets a tight nearfall out of it! Finn gets a stomp off and follows it up with repeated slingshot stomps near the ropes, referee Chad Patton warning him away from pushing it too far. Hesitation dropkick, thinking 1916 but Styles reverses to the Calf Killer!

 

Balor crawls, desperate, trying to get to the ropes but AJ rolls him through and locks it back on! Finn breaks it by smashing Styles’ head into the mat over and over but the damage is done and both men are slow to get up. AJ charges in, gets set on the apron, thinking Phenomenal Forearm but the Demon shoves him to the floor! Penalty Kick off the apron follows, and the shotgun dropkick puts the Phenomenal One into the barricade!

 

Patton counting and Balor warns him to stop before heading to collect AJ… STYLES WITH A DOUBLE LEG PICKUP OVER THE GERMAN ANNOUNCE TABLE! Back inside in time to beat the count, off the ropes… DOUBLE CROSSBODY! Back up… DOUBLE LARIAT! Slowly, inexorably to their feet and they go forearm for forearm in the center of the ring. Styles mixes it up, Styles Rush but Balor lands a Pele kick!

 

AJ is on dream street but Finn is still favoring his leg. 1916 blocked, AJ thinking Bloody Sunday, reversed, Balor trying the inverted 1916, no good but he gets an inverted headlock elbow drop, inverted 1916… NO GOOD! Shotgun dropkick but the leg is hurting! Finn climbs up top… PELE KICK! Styles heads to the apron… SPRINGBOARD AVALANCHE FRANKENSTEINER! NOT ENOUGH!

 

Balor down and out, AJ to the apron again, springboard 450 splash… NOBODY HOME! HUGE lariat from the Demon! Shotgun dropkick, Balor climbs up top…

 

Finn Balor wins by pinfall with Coup de Grace.

 

After the match, Finn helps AJ to his feet and they Too Sweet, as any two Good Brothers should.
