Live from Washington, DC
Bret Hart def. Kevin Owens - Mr. Money in the Bank didn't have a particularly good night as he was tapped out by the Hitman. Owens looked pretty dejected as he left the ring after the match
The Revival def. Power & Glory - P&G looked in control until Darth Obvious got confused later on in the match. This allowed The Revival to recover and eventually hit the Shatter Machine to pick up the 1-2-3. Not sure where the young tag team of P&G go from here
Velveteen Dream def Edge via count-out - In the first ever D-League match, Edge simply left the ring and stood on the stage as he was counted. The bizarre choice gave Dream a point in the standings and cost Edge a point as well. Hopefully we get some insight into exactly what Edge was up to next week
Cooperstown Kurt def Mr. Perfect to become the NEW United States Champion - What. A. Match. Kurt was on the offensive early, taking Perfect to the outside and laying a beating on him. The match was thought to be over when Coop hit Mr. Perfect with a Superkick as Perfect was leaping off the top rope. Eventually, Coop reversed a Perfect Plex into a roll-up for a 2 count, and eventually hit another Superkick to pick up the 1-2-3 and become the US Champion
The Club def. The Undisputed Era - Cole and O'Reilly seemed to hang Bobby Fish out to dry for a solid beating from The Club, not even trying to stop the eventual pin after Gallows & Anderson hit the Magic Killer.
Kris Jackson def. AJ Styles, Sami Zayn and Aleister Black to become the #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship - Another amazing match. Plenty of finishers hit and near falls in the match. Eventually Jackson hit Zayn with the Taking Action and picked up the 1-2-3 securing his title shot against Ric Flair at Night of Champions

This upcoming week's Thursday Titans will air on Wednesday due to Thursday being Valentine's Day (8pm ET at twitch.tv/SnaggleJ).
Welcome to the dawn of a new age in wrestling.
Today, I am happy to announce the formation of the Snaggle Wrestling Federation! This collection of amazing wrestlers will be focused on creating top-tier storylines and content for the wrestling fans.
The SWF will be comprised of ~40 wrestlers (comprised of roughly 75/25 real/custom wrestlers) who will compete each Thursday night on the flagship program "Thursday Titans". At this point, there won't be a Women's division due to title and time restraints. But it is something we could look at adding in the future should the initial run prove to be successful.
There will also be one Sunday pay-per-view event per month. SWF has signed an exclusive broadcasting deal with Twitch.tv/SnaggleJ to air all of its content. Archives of the content will also be published to YouTube shortly after it airs.
The SWF will feature five championships and 2 specialty briefcases:
- World Heavyweight Championship
- Canadian Championship
- Unites States Championship
- Twitch Championship
- Tag Team Championship
- Money In The Bank Briefcase (can be cashed in for a World Heavyweight title shot)
The D-League (or Developmental League) will comprise of 8 superstars vying for spots on the main roster through a series of matches that are tracked via standings. Standings will be finalized the last event before Wrestlemania.
Scoring is as follows:
- pinfall or submission win = 2 points
- DQ or count-out win = 1 point
- DQ or count-out loss = -1 point
- special match win (ladder, cage, etc) = 1 bonus point
- Royal Rumble win = Automatic promotion to the main roster
At Wrestlemania, here is what happens to the D-League participants based on the standings:
1st - Receives promotion to main roster and a Twitch Championship Title Match at Wrestlemania.
2nd - 4th - Promotion to the main roster
5th - 8th - FIRED!
After Wrestlemania, 8 new D-League participants will be announced and it will start again!
More information will be coming in the days and weeks ahead. The plan is for the promotion to be live very, very soon!
