Check out of Great Balls Of Fire play by play.
In a few hours, we’ll have live play by play of WWE’s latest PPV, Great Balls Of Fire. For such a ridiculous name, this show looks promising. The main event between Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar has been built up extremely well and there are some fun matches on the undercard.
Later tonight, we’ll have Big D and Brandon Draven of the Kayfabulous Lucha Bros on The Fight Game Podcast with some postgame thoughts. It should be wacky.
See you in a couple hours.
Bray Wyatt Vs Seth Rollins
This was a good opener. Bray’s intensity and brutality was strong. The story was that Seth was fighting from underneath the entire match and then started to make his comeback. He lost his cool while Bray was outside the ring. He reached over to grab him but the referee was holding him back. Bray then poked him in the eye blinding him, and then got in the ring and hit the Sister Abigail and got the pinfall.
Winner: Bray Wyatt
Enzo Amore Vs Big Cass
Enzo cut a 10 minute promo about his life being better than his dreams and how Cass is just 7-foot tall.
The match wasn’t much. Cass beat him up, then tossed him over the top rope and out to the floor. Enzo barely made it back to the ring before the count of 10. Then, he pulled himself up by the ropes and ate a big boot.

Hardy Boyz Vs Sheamus and Cesaro
Cesaro distracted Matt and Sheamus hit the big boot to get the immediate pinfall in less than a minute. Sheamus and Cesaro are up 1-0.
The champs got the second fall right around the 10 minute mark as Sheamus got him up for the White Noise. Cesaro came off the second rope to spike it, but barely touched him. They’re up 2-0.
In the next three minutes, the Hardy’s got one back. Matt hit the Side Effect and Jeff hit the Twist of Fate on Cesaro. It’s 2-1.
Matt was counted out to put the champs up 3-1.
Matt and Jeff double teamed Cesaro and Jeff sat down on Cesaro’s legs which were over his head in a pinfall. Hardy’s cut the lead to 3-2.
There was a close pinfall attempt as Matt did a moonsault off the top rope on Sheamus. Cesaro got there late and it looked like it was a three-count but not announced as a pin. Matt then hit the Twist of Fate from the top rope and got the pin. We’re now tied.
Jeff hit a Swanton on Sheamus with under a minute left, but Cesaro was the legal man in the ring and wrapped Jeff up in a sweet cradle for the pinfall. They’re up 4-3.
Jeff hit the Twist of Fate again right at the buzzer, but time ran out.
Winner: Cesaro and Sheamus
Sasha Banks Vs Alexa Bliss
This was a fun match. Bliss’ character is so strong. Crowd was behind Sasha. Sasha had the Bank Statement on Bliss. Bliss took a count out to save her title.
After the match, Banks attacked her and then did a Thesz Press off the announcer’s table and onto the floor. Bliss was bleeding from the nose.
Winner: Sasha Banks
The Miz Vs Dean Ambrose
Miz won with the Skull Crushing Finale after the Miztourage interfered. Ambrose hit the Dirty Deeds but Maryse put Miz’s foot on the ropes. Ambrose went wild with the standing elbow drop off the tope rope to the outside. When he tried to do it again inside the ring, Miz caught him and hit his finisher.
Winner: The Miz
Braun Strowman Vs Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns was Wile E. Coyote while Braun Strowman was the Road Runner. Most of the match was outside of the ring with some of it on the stage. At one point, Reigns tried to hit Strowman with a chair a few times and Strowman just took it on his left shoulder, flexed, and then eventually caught it.
At the end of the match, the back of the ambulance was open and Strowman was standing in front of it. Reigns stupidly went for the spear and flew into the back of the ambulance. Strowman closed the doors and won the match.

Winner: Braun Strowman
Reigns tossed Strowman into the back of the ambulance and drove it away. He was in the back and backed it into a trailer, crushing the back where Strowman was. Kurt Angle came out pissed off. Reigns left. Kurt had people call 911.
An unschedule match happened between Heath Slater and Curt Hawkins, but it was only for the live crowd. For TV, they just showed the Dallas Fire and Rescue team use the jaws of life to open up the ambulance.
Then Strowman walked out of it like a drunken guy on the Vegas strip.
Samoa Joe Vs Brock Lesnar
Joe jumped Lesnar before Paul Heyman even got through his introduction. They went outside and Joe gave Lesnar a urinagi through one of the announcer’s tables.
Back in the ring, Lesnar was in the corner selling and right as the bell rang, Joe rushed him again. Joe got his back and took Brock down, but Lesnar reversed it and put Joe in the corner. Lesnar gave him shoulder thrusts in the corner. Joe got the rear naked choke, but Brock got out of it by dropping Joe on the turnbuckle.
Then Lesnar took Joe to Suplex City three times. Joe was back up and Joe gave Lesnar a mule kick while he had the ref’s attention. Joe gave Brock a urinagi for a two count. Joe put the choke back on, but Brock was fighting his grip. Lesnar broke it with a side slam.
Lesnar took him back to Suplex City three times. Joe took the choke again. Brock pushed him back into the corner, but the referee didn’t break the hold. Joe had him in the middle of the ring, but Brock broke it with a F5 and won the match.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
