PLAY BY PLAY
The Worldwide Underground prepare for tonight.
Namely, Johnny Mundo air guitars with his new Gauntlet of the Gods. “This thing is gonna look so sweet mounted on the wall of my dojo.” If he ever takes it off. And Taya reminds him it’s their dojo now. Right, of course. But it’ll look even better with the blood of Matanza on it. Mundo wants to give it another test run, and the power courses through his body. Taya will be there just in case, right? She wouldn’t miss it for the mundo. Clever. But if Mundo fails, never to be seen again, just know he loves you, Taya. “I love you, too.” Rosa…? “You’re so pretty.” Thanks? But she doesn’t have a string… Rosa knows Taya is the Perfect Woman. And the perfect host! Rosa is going to possess Taya?!
Best 2 out of 3 Falls: El Dragon Azteca Jr. VS Fenix!
The Heir of the Eagle Tribe is a friend to Melissa Santos, but Melissa’s heart belongs to Fenix. However, Fenix’s soul is left tainted with darkness after Aerostar used Catrina’s stone to resurrect him. Can Azteca help bring back Fenix’s humanity? Or will the darkness only grow stronger?
Lucha Underground returns as the bell rings. Fenix glares at Melissa, but then rushes Azteca. Azteca dodges and kicks but Fenix dodges to CHOPS! Azteca chops back and it’s a chop fight! Fenix back hands but Azteca kicks, kicks and enziguris! Then he slides under, for another enziguri! Azteca runs, but Fenix somersaults for a cutter! Fans fire up as Fenix brings Azteca into a waistlock. Azteca blocks and fights out, Fenix shoves him. Azteca mule kicks Fenix, then hops up, but Fenix kicks out his legs! Fenix has Azteca hung up on the second rope, and shovels him onto his shoulders. Electric chair spin, but Azteca tries a huricanrana. Fenix blocks that and brings Azteca back up, but Azteca makes it a Code Red! Cover, TWO!
Azteca dropkicks Fenix down, Fenix bails out. Fans rally, Azteca springboards and FLIES! He wipes Fenix out but Believers fire up. Azteca puts Fenix back in the ring, then climbs up top.

Fenix brings Azteca out, spinning muscle buster! Cover, Fenix gets the first fall!
Azteca: 0 – Fenix: 1
The Black Bird takes the lead, but his eyes lock back on Melissa. Fenix goes to a corner, the second fall begins when we return from break!
Lucha Underground returns, and Fenix is bringing in chairs! Azteca is vulnerable as Fenix wedges a chair in a corner. Fenix goes back out, to bring out a table! Azteca stirs as fans rally up.

No cover as Fenix drags Azteca by his mask over to the corner with the chair. Fenix runs in, but Azteca dodges. Azteca runs in for a clothesline, then rolls and comes back for a forearm. He rolls Fenix, slides and calf kicks FEnix down! Cover, TWO! Fans rally up for Azteca as he and Fenix grind foreheads. Fenix shoves but Azteca moves to hit the DDTJ! Cover, Azteca gets the second fall!
Azteca: 1 – Fenix: 1
Things are all tied up super fast, and now we can go into the final fall! But Antonio Cueto decides to come out at this point. “Papa Cueto” says that this match has already been quite a show. But now we need to take it to the next level! “After all, this is Ultima Lucha.” Therefore, this final fall shall be… Falls Count Anywhere! The stakes are raised, as is that chair by Fenix! He SMACKS Azteca in the head! The Believers are thunderous for this final round, but we go to break!
Lucha Underground returns again, and Fenix clubs Azteca down. He pushes Azteca out, and he “borrows’ chairs from Believers. Fenix makes a pile of wood then puts Azteca back in the ring. He brings Azteca to that side of the ring where the table is, and goes for a suplex. Azteca holds on for dear life, then kicks Feniz off the apron! Fenix’s face bounces off the table! Fans fire up as Azteca goes out to fetch Fenix. Azteca brings out steel chairs, and THROWS one at Fenix’s face! They go around the corner and Azteca throws Fenix into the announce desk! Azteca has the Believers on his side as he brings out yet another table. The only one not really enjoying this fight is Melissa, as it is friend and lover fighting it out.
Fenix hits Azteca, they brawl, Fenix gets a German Suplex! Bridging cover, TWO! Azteca survives, so Fenix brings out a third table. And then a fourth! Fenix arranges these tables in the ring and Believers like that. Fenix runs in but Azteca dodges to send him into the post. Azteca kicks Fenix from the post, then springboard missile dropkicks! Believers rally up as Azteca takes care of the tables in the ring. He fetches Fenix on the outside but Fenix hits him. They have another chop fight back and forth, fast and furious! Azteca gets another DDTJ, to the floor!! But Azteca can’t make a cover, so he goes for that original table.
Azteca goes up to the bleachers, but Fenix follows. Fenix goes after Azteca at the rails as fans beg “Please Don’t Die!” The two brawl while trying to throw the other over.

Azteca hits Fenix away but slingshots into a SHORYUKEN! Fenix goes out to fetch Azteca, and they go to the second table. Fenix reels Azteca out for forearms, then puts him on the wood. Fans duel as Fenix climbs up. Melissa can barely watch as Fenix SUPER SWANTONS! The table doesn’t break, but maybe one of the two luchadores did… Believers know “This is Awesome!” as Fenix drags Azteca around the corner.
Fenix CHOPS Azteca then puts him on the apron. He tucks Azteca for a muscle buster but Azteca gets out to boot back. Azteca then climbs, but Fenix follows. Fenix stops Azteca up top, then joins him, and Melissa begs someone else do something to stop them. Azteca fights Fenix off, turns things around, then throws hands. He hits a SUPER Victory Roll Bomb, through a table!! Cover, TWO!? Fenix survives and Melissa is physically ill. Believers are losing their minds again as Azteca throws in more chairs. Azteca is armed with steel, and Believers rally up. He aims at Fenix, but Melissa tells him no! They’re friends, aren’t they? She says this isn’t Fenix’s fault, he’s not himself. But then Fenix SMACKS Azteca! And he scares Melissa off!
Fenix aims at Azteca, and SPEARS him through the third table!! Believers lose their minds again as Melissa begs for this to stop. Fenix sits Azteca on the top rope for a CHOP! Then, another Black Bird muscle buster! Cover, Fenix wins!
Winner: Fenix, by pinfall, wins 2-1
Melissa may have just cost Azteca the win, and Fenix his soul. Will the Dark Flame rise and take over the Temple?
Antonio Cueto is ringside again.
“Love makes you do strange things, huh?” Melissa refuses to be out here after what just happened between Fenix and Azteca, but luckily Antonio has been in “intense negotiations” as of late. And as of just earlier tonight, Antonio has made a blockbuster deal with an incredible talent! This person is lucha royalty! Antonio introduces the guest ring announcer for the rest of Ultima Lucha, Shaul Guerrero! A major get from the family of lucha libre! Shaul picks up the mic, and is honored to be here. But it’s time to get the action going again! She makes the introductions for this following–
Wait, Famous B comes out? He’s introducing himself as the one true guest ring announcer of The Temple. Fans disagree, and tell B to “Git!” But Famous B ignores them to head into the ring. He brushes Shaul aside, staking his claim as the only guest ring announcer. And he tells her to git! Well, before that, take his card, maybe give him a call. He has no idea who she is nor who her family is, so maybe if she wants to be famous– “Excuse~ me!” Just like mama! Shaul doesn’t know who Famous B is, but she’s gonna straighten him out.
The Guerrero family IS lucha libre! From Gory to Mondo to Hector to Chavo to Chavo Jr, to Mama Vickie and yes, Papa Eddie! Guerreros are lucha libre, but also warriors that “would kick your ass before you even know what hit you, Famous Bitch!” Sick burn, and she throws his card back at him. Famous B is angry as the fans echo Shaul. He figures if she’s too stupid to leave, then he’ll make her! The jacket comes off, but Believers chant “Kick his ass!” But wait, here comes Uncle Chavo! He scares Famous B, Shaul pokes B’s eyes then kicks him for a snap suplex. That’s one amiga! Then a second amiga! Then yes, the THIRD! And to do the honors for the entire Guerrero family, Chavo climbs, and hits the frog splash! They throw Famous B out, and now he can “Git! Git!”
Death Match: The Mack VS Mil Muertes!
Death comes for us all, but the Man of 1000 Deaths embraces the darkness. The urban underdog lost his cousin, Big Ryck, to Muertes’ wrath, but can he outrun the reaper and succeed on Lucha Underground’s biggest night?
Muertes brings a coffin with him, telling Mack now what to expect by the end of this. The bell rings, and Muertes rushes Mack. Mack dodges and throws big haymakers! Muertes pushes Mack back and puts him in the corner to throw heavy hands. Muertes whips corner to corner but runs into a boot. He blocks Mack’s next boot and reels Mack in for a lariat! Muertes drags Mack up as fans duel. He headbutts Mack and whips again, but Mack comes back with a flying enziguri! Muertes staggers but Mack runs in to clothesline him out. Muertes lands on his feet by his coffin, but Mack builds speed to FLY! Mack bowls Muertes over! Believers fire up as Mack says a prayer of thanks. Mack gets Muertes up and rocks him with more haymakers. Muertes hits back, and then bounces Mack’s face off the casket lid.
Muertes moves the casket aside and brings Mack up onto the apron. They brawl with haymakers and forearms while fans duel. Muertes kicks low and gives Mack a DDT to the apron! Believers are stunned silent a moment, but then rally back up. Muertes drags out a second casket?! Well, actually it makes a lot of sense given who Muertes is. Mack hits Muertes and they brawl again by the second coffin. Muertes bounces Mack off the lid again, then drags Mack up on top, for a facebuster! Mack’s head dents the casket! Muertes puts Mack in the ring and stands him up in a corner. Muertes fires off those close-range clothesline! He gets nine, and backs up as fans build the tension. Muertes runs in, but Mack drop toeholds him into buckles!
Mack goes side to side for the forearm smash, then the other way for the boot! Mack gives Muertes a back2back backbreaker! Muertes is down and Mack goes to the far side, to run back in for a cannonball! Fans fire up as Mack has a wild look in his eyes. He drags Muertes to a cover, TWO! Fans duel again as Mack decides to open up Muertes’ first coffin. Behold! An arsenal of brutal weapons! Mack goes for the tools, the kendo stick, the chain, and more, putting them in the ring. But then Muertes DIVES and tackles Mack into the coffin! Fans lose their minds all over again as Muertes stands up. Muertes drags the coffin up, and narrowly avoids the lid biting his fingers off, to go back for the rest of the items: a hatchet, a brick, and a meat hook!
Muertes puts Mack in the ring and brings in the lumberjack ax! This is becoming a horror movie as Muertes drags the ax around. Mack stands, but blocks the ax swing just in time! Mack kicks and gets the ax, but Muertes ducks the swing to give Mack an uppercut! Then the SPEAR! The Devil’s Trident knocks Mack down, but Muertes looks to use even worse on Mack. Muertes picks up the ice pick, and stands Mack up to JAB him in the head! Fans cringe as Muertes makes Mack bleed with more jabs of the steel spike. The referee gets squeamish but Muertes forces him to stay. Muertes brings Mack up and whips. Mack reverses and hits a windmill kick! Both men are down, and Mack has a crimson mask of blood. Mack grabs the chain, and shouts “Kunta Kinte 3000!” before giving Muertes a steel chain punch!
Muertes goes down but rolls to a corner. Mack goes out of the ring to bring in a trash can. Mack returns into the ring and fans rally up. He has the can and places it in front of Muertes. Mack hurries to the other corner, and fans chant it out, Mack leaps for the Coast2Coast! Direct hit on the “Mackinator”! Cover, TWO!! Muertes survives, but Mack still has more to give. He brings Muertes up, but Muertes gets him in a choke grip! And the choke slam! The fans duel as both men crawl to corners. Mack drags himself up, but Muertes runs in. Mack dodges and sends Muertes to the post! Muertes tumbles out and Mack pursues. Mack tears at the black mask of death to add insult to injury! Mack grabs himself a kendo stick, and SMACKS Muertes in the head!
Both men stagger and Mack throws Muertes back in. Muertes stands, and realizes he is dripping blood himself now. Mack runs and hits a jumping DDT! Cover, TWO! Muertes survives but Believers know “This is Awesome!” Mack keeps going because there’s still blood to spill. He swings on Muertes but Muertes spins him around for a BIG lariat! Cover, TWO!! It was so close, but Mack survives. Muertes gets up as fans chant “Lucha! Lucha!” Muertes runs at Mack for a crucifix takedown, but Mack makes it a Samoan Drop, albeit sloppy. Mack kips up and fans fire up! He hits a moonsault! Cover, TWO! Mack is shocked, but his blood helps him focus. He runs, but into the powerslam! Cover, TWO!! Another close call but this match isn’t over yet.
Muertes grows furious but Mack grows confident. Mack throws forearms, but ends up in a Flat Liner!! Muertes crawls to a cover, TWO!? Mack lives?! The look of shock is clear through Muertes’ masks of crimson blood and black leather. Muertes goes after Mack and wants another, but Mack elbows out of the Flat Liner. And elbows, and elbows, and elbows! But then he turns around into the choke grip! Muertes lifts, Mack hits the stunner! Muertes staggers, so Mack hits him with another! But Muertes still hasn’t fallen, so Mack gets that brick. This brick is for Ryck! Then the double dirty birds as Mack tells Muertes to “Go to Hell, you mutha f*cka!” STUNNER!! Cover, Mack WINS!!
Winner: The Mack, by pinfall
Death has been conquered!! Muertes is no longer undefeated at Ultima Lucha, and Mack decides to put the last nail in the coffin. He drags Muertes over to the coffin, and as Believers chant “Put Him In!”, Mack rolls Muertes into his own prop. And to cap it all off, Mack gets some beers, to pour out one for the homeys. And finally, he closes the lid. Does this incredible win mean big things for The Mack next season? Or will death rise again?
Sacrifice to the Gods Match: Matanza Cueto VS Johnny Mundo!
The first sacrifice was the last remaining shred of humanity within the vessel of Antonio Cueto’s last living son. From there, the Monster God of the Temple would dispatch of the dead weight in the locker room. However, he would be unleashed by a psychotic Ricky Mantel Mundo to ruin the Worldwide Underground’s wedding night. The Guru of Greatness was not able to seek revenge himself for a time, thus leaving his friends, Joey Wrestling and Jack Evans, to be preyed upon by the Cuetos. Taya was almost sacrificed if not for the heroic return of Johnny himself! However, knowing Mundo is mortal, the Super Amigos, Drago and Aerostar, felt this was the time to grant someone the power of the Gauntlet of the Gods! Can Mundo use his power-up to take Matanza to #SlamTown? Or will he sadly be the latest and greatest Sacrifice to the Gods?
Antonio hurries out to ringside, having recognized that gauntlet. He shouts that the gauntlet is not Mundo’s to have! It doesn’t matter where he got that gauntlet, but he won’t have it for much longer, as he’ll just end up in a puddle of his own blood on the Aztec seal in the ring! And Matanza now makes his entrance, in new ceremonial, and frightening, garb. Believers already lose their minds seeing this terrifying transformation, but the true terror will begin after the break.
Lucha Underground returns and the bell rings. Mundo and Matanza each sport new gear, and Mundo eggs Matanza on. Matanza runs in, and Mundo gets him with a choke grip! Mundo powers Matanza to his knees! Then throws him backwards! Fans fire up, and Mundo grins with the new found power. Mundo runs in but Matanza avoids the Superman Punch. Mundo still feels great, and swings another punch at Matanza. Matanza avoids it, and goes after the gauntlet itself! Matanza and Mundo struggle, and the gauntlet flies off! It ends up at the stairs, and now Mundo is without his equalizer. Mundo still throws hands, but they do nothing. Matanza hits back but Mundo gives a kick and forearm. Mundo whips but Matanza reverses, but Mundo slides under. Mundo scrambles but Matanza drags him back in. Matanza throws Mundo but Mundo lands on his feet!
Mundo keeps moving, but runs into a pop-up SPINEBUSTER! Matanza looms over Mundo as fans rally up. Matanza drags Mundo up for a torture rack. Running rack Samoan Drop! Then a deadlift German Suplex! Matanza looms over Mundo, and drags him back up, for the fisherman back suplex! Bridge cover, TWO!! Mundo narrowly escapes, but Matanza is still on him. Matanza brings Mundo up to whip, and scoops for Wrath of the Gods, but Mundo counters with a crucifix! Roll through, but Mundo roundhouses and SUPERKICKS! Mundo kicks more, then hits Moonlight Drive! Antonio watches as Mundo drags Matanza to a drop zone. Mundo drags himself up, split leg for the Fin del Mundo! Cover, TWO!! Matanza survives, not even the end of the world can kill a god.
Believers rally up, and Mundo hurries out of the ring. He still wants the gauntlet, but Matanza gets him at the apron! And lifts him right up to the top rope, for a SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX!! Believers lose their minds again as Matanza sits up. The Monster is, for the first time, feeling fatigue. But oh no, Matanza wants the Gauntlet of the Gods?! But knowing Mundo is still near, Matanza leaves the gauntlet alone to go after his prey. Mundo goes under the ring, and Matanza goes looking for the sly Sultan of Sexy. Mundo pops out on the other end, but ducks back in before Matanza can get him. Matanza goes looking under the ring, but Mundo has made it to the stairs! And he gets the gauntlet back! Mundo hurries to put it back on, but Matanza runs him over! Now the gauntlet is on the bleachers.
Matanza moves up the bleachers and fans move aside. Matanza has the Gauntlet, but tosses it up WAY into the rafters?! Mundo hurries to climb up, but Matanza yanks him off the ladder. Mundo fights him off, then hurries up the stairs! Matanza pursues and drags Mundo down. Mundo ducks the punch to SUPERKICK! But Matanza isn’t bothered. Mundo leads Matanza on a chase, and finds a back way up to the top level. Matanza cuts him off at the stairs, but Mundo keeps going up. Mundo flips Matanza off to egg him on. There’s a large gap between where Mundo is above the band, and where Matanza tossed the gauntlet. But Mundo trusts his parkour training, and hops from roof to fuse box to ledge! But Matanza yanks him off, to throw him into the wall!
Believers rally up, they still have faith in Mundo. But Matanza lifts Mundo, and goes to bomb him over rails! Mundo fights off, and gets up to the ledge! Matanza hurries up with a ladder but fans know “This is Awesome!” Mundo crawls to where the gauntlet is, but still has no time to put it on. Matanza grabs him around the throat! And choke slams Mundo through the floor! Mundo goes through wood and is now in the Modelo freezer! Believers lose their minds all over again, and Matanza seems to have won. Antonio directs Matanza back to the ring, and that is where the Monster heads, chair in hand. But wait! The doors open, and Mundo stands! He has the gauntlet on! Mundo has the POWER! And he punches the chair out of Matanza’s hands!
The two head back down the stairs and to the ring. Mundo and his power seems to scare Matanza now! Mundo throws a punch, Matanza dodges, and Mundo hits post! But it doesn’t hurt at all. Mundo swings but Matanza dodges again, Matanza’s running scared! Matanza cowers by the stairs, Mundo uses the apron as a springboard for a Superman Punch into the ground! But Matanza narrowly gets away, and into the ring. Mundo follows Matanza into the ring, and Believers are thunderous. Mundo leaps, but into Matanza’s arms! WRATH OF THE GODS!! Cover, TWO!?! Mundo survives the Wrath of the Gods?! Even Mundo is surprised at how powerful he’s becoming. He gives Matanza a BIG gut punch, then a BIG haymaker. Matanza is staggered, SUPERMAN PUNCH takes him down! And then, as Mundo stares at Antonio, he climbs up top and flips Antonio off.
Antonio is furious as Mundo aims at Matanza. FLYING SUPERMAN PUNCH!! Matanza is down, Mundo turns him over for a cover, Mundo wins!!
Winner: Johnny Mundo, by pinfall
The modern day mix of Adonis and Hercules, Mundo conquers the Monster God! The Gauntlet has given him the power and the glory, but will it give Mundo the world?
Johnny Mundo walks backstage.
The Guru of Greatness feels great with the Gauntlet of the Gods on his arm, but then Aerostar appears and surprises him. Mundo asks if he’s seen Taya, but Aerostar is more concerned with the debt having been paid. Yeah, but Mundo would like to hold onto the gauntlet for a little while longer. Aerostar says that the power Mundo feels is not enhancing him, but destroying him. Mundo thinks Aerostar is just saying that to get the gauntlet back. Aerostar says Mundo only won thanks to the gauntlet. But if he wears it any longer, he’ll be nothing but a shell, as another god inhabits his body.
Mundo feels that power surging, but admits that no one gets to have his perfect body but himself. Aerostar asks for the gauntlet back, and Mundo takes it off. He gives it back to Aerostar, and Aerostar says Mundo’s a good man. Mundo says he’s not. But for now, he’ll go “celebrate” with Taya. Mundo managed to fight off such addictive power, but will there be a nasty surprise waiting for him in the locker room?
Lucha Underground Championship Cero Miedo Match: Marty “The Moth” Martinez VS Pentagon Dark!
The beginning of Marty’s reign has been controversial to say the least. First, the “Creepy Bastard” paid his way into a Gift of the Gods Championship match, and took advantage of a beaten down El Dragon Azteca Jr. Then he paid Antonio Cueto to make it an instant cash-in! And with the help of his Black Widow girlfriend, he took the title from Pentagon after Pentagon had been through a Triple Threat against Mil Muertes and King Cuerno. However, Marty’s the only man crazy enough to think he can beat the Bone Collector at his own game. Will Marty prove there’s a method to his madness? Or will Pentagon again prove that he is the only one truly with #CeroMiedo?
Weapons are already set up, and Believers are thunderous for Pentagon the moment he makes his entrance. And in the complete opposite, the fans rain down boos as Marty makes his way down the stairs. This fight without any rules but to win will begin, after the break.
Lucha Underground returns with the bell, and with Pentagon tossing a chair into Marty’s face! Pentagon goes out to fetch Marty, and bowls him into chairs! Fans are still cheering as Pentagon brings Marty over and around to kick him in the leg. Marty scurries away but Pentagon kicks him again. Pentagon throws Marty into a post, and the champion is busted open! Pentagon tosses items into the ring, such as a trash can full of other items. Fans chant “SI! SI!” as Marty grimaces through his own blood. Pentagon SMACKS Marty with a trash can! The brawl in front of the announce desk, and Pentagon CHOPS and CHOPS Marty. But Marty grins and laughs?! Pentagon kicks Marty in the leg, then bowls him through more chairs!
Pentagon keeps on Marty with stomps and haymakers. He whips Marty at the propped up table, but Marty stops himself. Pentagon runs in but Marty goes to hip toss, only for Pentagon to stop himself. Pentagon hits back, then SUPERKICKS Marty! Marty staggers, but ducks to then hip toss Pentagon through the propped up table! Believers lose their minds once again as Marty enjoys his own crimson mask. Marty stomps Pentagon, then rains down rights. Marty picks up a kendo stick and SMACKS Pentagon! And SMACKS! Pentagon gets into the ring, but Marty has his #AztecPride lunch box. He hasn’t brought this with him in a long time. Marty goes after Pentagon’s mask with bloody fingers! He tears away, but Pentagon resists, so Marty clubs him down.
Marty picks up the lunch box, his blood dripping all over. Marty opens it up, and turns out there’s some leftover beef jerky in there. He snacks on that while digging out what he’s really after: the fork! The same fork he used on Fenix, back when Fenix had a soul and when they were fighting over Melissa Santos. Believers chant “Fork you! Fork you!” as Marty brings the four-pronged weapon over. Just as he did to Fenix, Marty digs into Pentagon’s forehead with the metal silverware! Believers boo, jeer, and some even cringe. Marty tosses the fork aside, and drags Pentagon out of the ring. Marty drops a fist from the apron, then goes back under the ring for plenty of steel chairs. Fans rally for Pentagon, but Marty starts burying Pentagon under chairs. Marty did this to his own sister, Mariposa, not too long ago.
Marty throws chair after chair onto Pentagon, and then SMACKS the entire pile with other chairs. Pentagon manages to get out of the chair pile, and uses one to SMACK Marty in the head! Then Pentagon leaps for a Destroyer to the floor!! Believers lose their minds for about the eighth time tonight while Pentagon puts Marty in the ring. Cover, TWO! The blood continues to flow as this match continues on. Pentagon goes to the trash can, dented and broken as it is, and puts it aside. Marty kicks Pentagon low! There are no rules so that low blow is legal. Marty then hoists Pentagon onto the top rope. He clubs away, then grabs that trash can to put on Pentagon.
Pentagon is in a Tree of Woe with that can around him, and now Marty grabs the barbed wire bat. Marty goes over and swings for the fences on Pentagon! Once, twice, three times, so many times until the trash can splits open! Fans rally up again as Marty digs around under the ring for a can of gasoline! Marty teased doing this before Ultima Lucha, and now he looks to make good on the threat. Marty picks up the bat to hit Pentagon again, then starts pouring on the gas. Pentagon is gasping for air, and Marty pulls out the lighter! Believers love brutality but they don’t want this. Marty holds the lighter up, but Pentagon kicks it away! Marty SUPERKICKS Pentagon then clubs and stomps away as he shouts “Die, Pentagon!”
Believers shout as loud as they can as Marty grabs the bat again. Marty looks to hit another homer, but Pentagon dodges! The bat hits the ropes and comes back to hit Marty! Marty staggers, but grits his teeth and runs at Pentagon. Pentagon hip tosses Marty out and through a table!! Marty is down on the outside while Pentagon is down on the inside. Believers again lose their minds, but then rally behind “Cero Miedo!” with Pentagon. Pentagon gets Marty up and around for a BIG kick. They keep going, and Pentagon aims for the glass! Marty reverses, but Pentagon stops him. Pentagon SUPERKICKS Marty, and throws him through the glass!! Not even Matt Striker can keep from shouting “HOLY SH*T!” The Believers make it an even ten for losing their minds.
Pentagon drags Marty up and around and back into the ring. Marty now bleeds from face and arms, but Pentagon isn’t done with him. Pentagon puts chairs in, and starts setting them up. Fans sing “Ole~! Ole ole ole~! Cero~, Miedo~!” Pentagon brings Marty up onto the half dozen chairs, tucks him in, PACKAGE PILEDRIVER through chairs!! Cover, Pentagon WINS!!
Winner: Pentagon Dark, by pinfall; NEW Lucha Underground Champion
The match is done, the belt returns to its former master, but the carnage is far from over. Pentagon drags Marty into place, but here comes Reclusa! The Black Widow won’t let her man lose an arm along with the gold. But Vampiro has had enough, and gets in the ring. He protects his former protege as he runs off Reclusa and Marty. Vampiro holds the belt and fans again sing “Ole~! Ole ole ole~! Cero~, Miedo~!” Pentagon stands as our first-ever two-time Lucha Underground Champion and the Believers couldn’t be happier for him. Vampiro holds the belt out to Pentagon with respect, and Pentagon takes it. The Bone Collector has come full circle, but the former mentor isn’t happy about it, as he kicks Pentagon in the balls!
But Pentagon doesn’t go down so easy, he kicks Vampiro in the balls, too! The two men from the original Cero Miedo match brawl in the aftermath of this one! They kick and punch each other, but then Vampiro whips Pentagon. pentagon reverses and hits a corner clothesline! Pentagon fires off, but who is this in the skull mask? They SMACK Pentagon with a chair! He takes off that mask to reveal a very similar mask to Pentagon’s own. Vampiro gets a mic, and introduces everyone to his master?! Vampiro throws Pentagon out for The Master, as he climbs up high. Pentagon staggers, as The Master hits a crazy Shooting Star off the camera deck! Believers are confused as Vampiro puts Pentagon back in, for a Crimson Arrow! Just who is this new luchador?
But wait, The Savage, Jake Strong appears! He is the newest Gift of the Gods Champion, and we know now that the title is instant cash-in… Strong tells Pentagon that he can cash in whenever he wants. “Do you hear me?! Whenever I want!” That voice change wasn’t just a trick of the mic… And yes, he’s cashing in!!
Lucha Underground Championship, Gift of the Gods Cash-In Match: Pentagon Dark VS Jake Strong!
The Savage shows no mercy as he picks the bones of the bloodied and battered Bone Collector. And speaking of bones, Strong puts the Ankle Lock on immediately! Fans don’t want this, but they can’t do a thing as Strong snaps Pentagon’s ankle! Pentagon doesn’t tap, but he does pass out. The boos rain down as the match is over!
Winner: Jake Strong, by submission; NEW Lucha Underground Champion
Believers call “Bullsh*t!” but Strong has taken advantage of the new and corrupt system in The Temple. The Savage Era begins as the season ends, where will everything go from here?!
In an undisclosed location…
Aerostar, King Cuerno, and El Dragon Azteca Jr. meet, the Gauntlet of the Gods still in the hands of the Man of Time and Space. Cuerno says the gauntlet is too dangerous, so it must be sent back into hiding. Azteca says Matanza has already grown too strong, but after what Mundo did, they can use the gauntlet to strike The Monster down for good. Aerostar breaks the tie by telling Azteca, “Make it quick.” Azteca says, “She plans to.” And just below them, Matanza Cueto paces. But she walks in, armed with the gauntlets. Now she knows the truth: El Dragon Azteca Primero didn’t kill her parents, but Matanza did! It’s BLACK LOTUS! She’s armed with the Gauntlet, and will finally have her revenge!
Matanza runs in, but into a flurry of strikes! Fiver finger death palm! The Monster’s heart is crushed, and Matanza Cueto is dead. Azteca Jr. says that her parents can finally rest in peace. And so can his master. Lotus returns the gauntlet, but then Strong finds Azteca! Strong attacks quick, and says the gauntlet isn’t Azteca’s to have. Strong breaks Azteca’s ankle, and takes the gauntlet! The Gauntlet belongs “to US!” The Savage now has the gauntlet AND the title! Will he soon have everything in his possession?
Johnny Mundo finally meets up with Taya. Did she see? Babe? She okay? Why wasn’t she in his corner? Okay, he gets it, she wanted him to prove he could do it himself. And he did! Revenge is theirs, but how about that honeymoon? Huh, Mrs. Mundo? “Sorry, Johnny. I’m not your wife.” ROSA HAS CONTROL!! And she uses Taya’s body to beat up Mundo with one hand! “I am a god.” What is the fate of the Guru of Greatness?!
Everything is coming together. “Just as prophesied.” Agent Winter, Antonio Cueto, Vampiro’s Master, they all sit in the limousine together, fully aware that more Aztec gods have taken human form while the Lucha Underground Championship is back under their control. Now on to destroying the Seven Aztec Tribes! Savage joins this dark council meeting, and everyone takes note of the blood on his shirt and on the gauntlet. Sorry to say, it’s Matanza’s blood. But Matanza was a worthy host, “and The Order will never forget his sacrifice.” But now, they need a new host. So says Lord WADE BARRETT!! “Does anyone else have any bad news?” No? Then time to take over the world!
Flashback to one year ago!
When Antonio took Matanza’s key from Dario, Aerostar popped in later, to give HIM the Amulet of Life!! “Come with me.” Dario was alive again, and sprang up in the coffin. “What the f–”
TO BE CONTINUED!!
This was an INSANE finale! And hopefully not a series finale, either. That 2 outta 3 Falls could’ve been better, as that second fall was really quick. However, Fenix winning makes some sense, as they might not be done exploring his darker turn. The Death Match was pretty great, and Mack winning makes sense because he’s been building great momentum as this underdog fan favorite for years. Holy crap Taya is now Rosa in human form, and though Mundo uses the Gauntlet of the Gods to defeat Matanza in epic fashion, it looks like she might’ve killed him. Maybe he should’ve have given the gauntlet up after all, and then there’d be an epic battle of demigods backstage. But oh well, Mundo is busy in Impact so maybe he won’t be around for Season 5.
That Cero Miedo match was the most insane part of this, and man that was a lot of blood. I thought Reclusa would show up sooner, but I guess it didn’t matter when the real screw job was Vampiro and “The Master” beat up Pentagon to leave him for dead and so that Jake Strong could cash in. I had a feeling Strong was going to cash in regardless of the other twists, but this makes him seem even more of a vulture. Of course, now that we know he’s been working with everyone else in this “Order”, it makes sense. I was really shocked to see Black Lotus return to wreck Matanza and kill his character off, but Jeff Cobb being in both NJPW and ROH now must have something to do with it.
Then the twists kept coming at the end as The Order gets the title, the gauntlet and we finally see their leader’s face! PLUS Dario is back from the dead. That’ll get awkward if father and son meet again, since they’re the same actor, though… I have no idea where the story goes from here but it’s fitting to be an epic battle from here on out.
My Score: 8.9/10

Wardlow gets up in a corner but Scorpio KICKS him in the leg. Wardlow shoves Scorpio away and goes to another corner but Scorpio rams into him.

Jon Moxley speaks.
“A lot of people have tried to make a name off of me. A lot of people have lost a lot of money betting against me. And tonight, those people are licking their lips. They’re watching me and waiting for me to be caught off guard, and hope that one day, somebody’s gonna come along and surprise me and put a beating on me that I never recover from. They think tonight, Brody King is gonna surprise me, they think he’s gonna catch me off guard, they think I don’t know exactly what kind of monster I’m dealing with in Brody King. But maybe y’all forgot exactly what kind of monster you’re dealing with in me.
“Ten days ago, I took a man I deeply respect and admire in Hiroshi Tanahashi, and I beat his face in. A few days after that, I was carving dudes’ faces up like hamburger in a steel cage! For fun! Blood & Guts is like golfing on a Sunday for me. And then a few days after that, I signed on the dotted line to defend the AEW World Championship against Brody King. Yeah, I know exactly who Brody King is. Y’all think I didn’t do my homework? I’ve seen him in NJPW, I’ve seen him in ROH, I know his friends, I know his enemies. Only one question left: How big is his heart? Does he have a monster sized heart beating in that chest?
“We’re gonna find out because he’s gonna be swimming in the deep waters with the biggest shark in this game, the AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley. When you step into the ring with anybody from the Blackpool Combat Club, we find your limits and we push them. We find out just how bad you want it! Being made for the BCC, being world champion, it ain’t for everybody. But it’s what I do every day. Step up or get stepped on.” The Maniac gives his ultimatum, how will the House of Black’s hulking beast respond?
Mark Sterling and Tony Nese speak.
Smart Mark asks if the camera is rolling. It is, and it seems Sterling wants us to see them get a very big signature on their petition. Keith Lee is walking up, and Sterling says this is “The People Against Swerve Strickland” to remove Swerve from the roster. Swerve is untrustworthy, he stabs people in the back, just like Keith! Sterling thinks Keith should sign it. Keith says greetings to Mr. Sterling and Mr. Nese. And yes, he has trust issues with Swerve, but they are still a tag team, and they are still winning. Unlike Nese and Sterling. Keith heads out and Nese tries to figure out what Keith meant by that. But will Swerve only prove Sterling right tonight?
Christian Cage & Luchasaurus are here.
Captain Charisma and his brainwashed behemoth are in Rochester, New York, and fans boo because of how they’ve both betrayed Jungle Boy. Christian has a mic to say, “Here we are, on the heels of Blood & Guts, and I am the Cage that everybody is talking about. Now, you ignorant pieces of crap think that you deserve to know the reason why I turned my back, and said and did the things that I did to Jungle Boy and his family, are now demanding answers, wanting to know why Luchasaurus decided to remain aligned with me.” Fans boo but that is technically true, we do want to know why.
But wait! MATT HARDY is here! And he has a mic to tell Christian, “You are unreal. You’re like the Michael Jordan of being an asshole. Every time I don’t think you can top yourself again, you somehow do.” Hardy will be honest, JB was his friend. Hardy got to know JB well these last few months. JB trusted and respected Christian, and Christian screwed him over! No one, let alone JB, deserved what Christian did. Hardy gets up at the ring but Christian wants to get this straight. “You’re going to sit here and pretend you’re suddenly buddy-buddy with Jungle Boy, like you know him the way that I know him? Or the way that Luchasaurus knows him?
“Here’s the thing, Matt. You’re starting to make your brother sound like the sober one.” No one can believe Christian went there! The fans double down on calling Christian an A-Hole. Hardy sees what’s going on here with Luchasaurus now. Hardy and Christian have been at this a long time, and in the last few years, Christian is just using Luchasaurus to make as much money as he can. But Hardy can’t be a hypocrite, he did the same. He took advantage of Private Party, Butcher & Blade, and he used them. But he hates himself for that and regrets that time so badly. And in a twist of fate, his last month has been upside-down, it’s been a mess.
Hardy says maybe he deserves that, it’s karma coming to get him. But right now, Hardy won’t let another be taken advantage of. Not Luchasaurus or anyone else. Christian says no, Hardy is here because of his ego! We all know Matt Hardy is a clout chaser, which is why he can’t stand when his name isn’t in the headlines for more than two seconds. Right? He’ll use everyone around him! His kids, his wife, his father-in-law, his dog Sparky, his Aunt Jenny, a dilapidated boat, a lawnmower, and hell, he’ll even turn a blind eye to his own brother’s issues just to ride his coattails for one last run!
Hardy says Christian is delusional, but Christian says Hardy is here under the guise of caring for Jungle Boy, when the fact is, Hardy realized that Christian is the most influential star in AEW and Hardy needs to be near him. That is embarrassing, Matt, it really is. But what’s even worse, Matt’s screw-up brother isn’t the most embarrassing part of his family, MATT is! Hardy wans to throw down but Luchasaurus steps in his way. And Christian cheap shots Hardy! Hardy chokes Christian but Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Hardy out of the ring! Luchasaurus goes out and RAMS Hardy into the steel steps!
Christian tells Luchasaurus to finish Hardy, but Hardy fires forearms back! Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS Hardy, digs his head into the post, and then BOOTS him against the steel! But this isn’t enough, Christian has Luchasaurus clear the timekeeper’s table! Luchasaurus then choke grips to CHOKE SLAM Hardy through the table!! Christian then sits by Hardy to say, “There you are. Your name is in the headlines. Enjoy your relevance.” Christian leaves with Luchasaurus, will they continue to stoop to new lows in order to rise up the ranks?
AEW has the aftermath of Blood & Guts.
A bloody Matt Menard says that the only reason the others agreed to such as match is because of Chris Jericho. And if the Jericho Appreciation Society got anything out of that night, it’s that they stole the privilege of seeing Eddie Kingston make Jericho tap! Menard was the one who gave up when Claudio Castagnoli had the Sharpshooter on, sparing Jericho from Eddie’s stretch plum. William Regal says that after 39 years in this business, he has never ever witnessed such horror as Blood & Guts. Ortiz says he wants more! More blood, more guts, just MORE! Regal says that is what the Blackpool Combat Club is all about.
Claudio says you can call him The Mailman now, because he always delivers! Menard says if you want big money, you gotta do that “big boy sh*t.” Angelo Parker, as bloody as he ended up, vows that the JAS will not stop until Eddie Kingston is in a grave!! Will there be no end to the war of JAS VS BCC? Speaking of…
Tony Schiavone interviews Claudio and Jake Hager backstage.
Not just that, but it’s the parking lot. Schiavone says this may not be the best place for this, but he is here with two giant men who know each other well. They’ve both signed a waive, No Physicality. Hager says that’s right, no physicality here tonight. The 16 THOUSAND people at Forbidden Door cheered Claudio on, and that may have him thinking he’s tough, but deep down inside, he knows he’s not as tough or as hard as Jake Hager. Claudio knows he’s not a world champion like Hager. Claudio was never world champion in ROH or in WWE, and he won’t be one here in AEW. Hager is an UNDEFEATED MMA pro-fighter, and it is about time he got some respect.
Claudio tells Hager that everyone who says, “I want my respect,” doesn’t deserve respect! Claudio beat Zack Sabre Jr, one of the best technical wrestlers, in his first match here. And then Claudio went on to lead his team to victory against Hager’s team- Oh, sorry, Hager just carries the bags for Jericho, right? But while Hager got his arm wrapped, Claudio got his raised, and it’ll happen again next week when they go 1v1. Hager may be undefeated in MMA, but Claudio is undefeated in AEW, where rankings matter. And next week, Claudio is going to go 3-0! Will the Swiss Cyborg dismantle Rock Hard Hager when they meet man to man once again?
Swerve in Our Glory VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny!
Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland are still trying to smooth things out, but they at least have common enemies to focus on tonight. Will their Limitless House still stand? Or will the mercenaries help stick that knife in Keith’s back for Swerve?
The teams sort out and Blade steps against Keith. Fans rally up for Keith but Blade talks trash as he conducts the singing. “OH~ BASK IN HIS GLORY~!” Blade SLAPS Keith, but Keith HEADBUTTS Blade! Butcher tags in and fans fire up to see him tie up with Keith. They are in a deadlock, break, and go again. Keith powers Butcher to a corner, Butcher goes up the corner, but Keith TOSSES him away!

Blade drags Swerve up to turn him for a NECKBREAKER to the floor! Swerve crawls away but Butcher and Blade drag him up. Blade puts Swerve in the ring, drags him over and tags in Butcher. The mercs mug Swerve, Butcher HEADBUTTS him, and then CHOPS Swerve in the corner. Butcher digs his forearms into Swerve at the corner, lets off as the ref counts, and Butcher whips Swerve hard into the corner! Swerve falls and Blade tags in to drag Swerve into ropes. Blade CHOKES Swerve, lets off as the ref counts, but Bunny CHOKES Swerve now! The ref misses that but Keith protests. Bunny frolics while Blade drags Swerve up.
Butcher tags in and the mercs hit a LEG DROP SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Butcher sits Swerve up to KNEE him in the back again and again! Butcher CLUBS Swerve, Swerve kicks and CHOPS back. Butcher CHOPS Swerve, Swerve kicks back but Butcher throws haymakers and CHOPS! Tag to Blade and they mug Swerve in the corner. Blade digs his boots in but the ref counts. Bunny mocks Swerve and Butcher CLUBS Swerve against the apron. Butcher shoves Swerve in for Blade to drag him. Butcher tags in, the mercs mug Swerve more, and then Butcher puts Swerve up on the top rope.
Butcher climbs up after Swerve as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve resists the superplex and wrenches an arm! Swerve bends and BITES fingers, but the ref reprimands.

Winners: Swerve in Our Glory, by pinfall
Somehow, someway, Keith & Swerve pull it out! But Team Taz barges out to say this is really starting to piss them off! Will Hobbs says the fans can feel it. “You think we’re going to allow you two to still come out here and disrespect us? What you have in front of you is two grown ass men, trick ass bitch!” Ricky Starks has Hobbs hold the FTW Championship so he can have the mic. They’ve been playing real nice right now, because they could’ve ended Keith’s & Swerve’s careers online and on the mic. If you don’t believe them, ask their former teammate!
But if Swerve & Keith wanna act like they’re somebody, when every time they’ve stood in the ring against Team Taz, every time they try to get on the mic against them, Team Taz has proven there are levels to this, and Swerve & Keith are NOT on their level! They are levels below them! Starks says that just because of where they came from, Swerve & Keith think they can get a shot at them! Well if you want to talk about it, Starks will beat their asses right now! But if we’re talking about who the best tag team is, then- “SUPERKICK! PARTAAAY~!” The AEW World Tag Team Champions, the YOUNG BUCKS, are here!
Matt Jackson has the music cut, and he says Starks may as well have just been in the back to cue up their music for them. That was pretty sweet. And gentlemen, sorry to interrupt- Or, no, the Bucks don’t have to apologize for anything, they started this damn company! But hey, great match from Keith & Swerve, they have been killing it. All the teams in the back have been killing it, this whole AEW Tag Division is on fire! “Everyone is eating well. But let us not forget who set the damn table in the first place.” Nick takes the mic to say no disrespect here, because these two teams are very good.
In fact, at Double or Nothing, Team Taz and Swerve in Our Glory “had one hell of a match. It was four and a half stars, that’s unbelievable. But that’s an off-night for the Young Bucks!” And they couldn’t even get the job done, Jurassic Express won. But then look who beat Jurassic Express a few weeks later. “Read it and mother effin’ weep it! WE did!” Now there is a proposal here. How about it’s Triple or Nothing? Next week, a TRIPLE THREAT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH…! Team Taz, Swerve in Our Glory, and though the fans chant for FTR, Nick says, “We’re better than them, and you guys know that, come on.”
But the point is, it will be Team Taz VS Swerve in Our Glory VS “The best damn tag team of all time…! THE YOUNG BUCKS!” Another big opportunity for the #AbsolutePowerhouses in Hobbs & Starks, as well as the Limitless House of Keith & Swerve! Will this Triple Threat finally be a chance for one of those teams to shine with gold? Or are Matt & Nick just taking out two birds with one stone?
The House of Black speaks.
Malakai says, “I envy you, Jon. I envy you for the decisions that you made, and the violence that you inflicted on yourself. We didn’t get the luxury of your decisions. No, our violence is by design. But what I truly envy is the experience that you’re about to have. You think you know pain? You think you know anger? You think you know violence? No, you don’t. But I’ll make sure that Brody King will eave his mark on you. Because the House will make sure that anything that you experience tonight goes far beyond the physical realm of pain. I envy you, Jon.” Just how much brutality will Brody King unleash upon Jon Moxley?
Eddie Kingston is here!
The Mad King goes to the ring where Tony Schiavone is waiting. Schiavone reminds us that a week ago, it was Blood & Guts, and we all saw what happened. But there is still a name on Eddie’s hit list and that is Chris Jericho. Eddie says that before we get to that, please, hold the mic up like a professional, thank you. Eddie says before getting to Jericho, he congratulates Wardlow on tonight’s win. And two, congratulations to everyone that was on the winning team of Blood & Guts, even Claudio. See? Eddie’s a nice guy, he’s maturing. Pbbt. But anyway, here’s the real deal why he’s out here.
“Chris Jericho. You made me a liar. I didn’t taste your blood, you didn’t bleed. SO, I’m gonna get you again, and I’m gonna make you bleed, and I’m gonna taste your blood!” But Chris Jericho, as well as Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti, shout at Eddie via the titantron. They want him to pay attention. Eddie wants to taste Jericho’s blood? Eddie wants to get crazy? You’ll see how crazy Jericho can get. The camera pans over and Tay has been beating up Ruby Soho! There’s an open car door, and Tay has Soho stagger into the gap, to SLAM the door on Soho’s arm!! Soho drops to the floor, clutching her arm!
“Watch yourself Kingston, or this will happen to you!” The JAS rushes off before security rushes in. They call for a medic, has the JAS just broken Soho’s arm just to get at Eddie?
The Dark Order is here!
Fans cheer as Negative One leads the way for Evil Uno, Preston Vance, Alex Reynolds, John Silver & Anna Jay to the ring here in Rochester. Fans cheer for “BRODIE! BRODIE!” to honor Negative One’s father, and Silver has the mic to say, “The Dark Order is in Rochester! And Rochester is Dark Order Country!” Uno takes the mic to say that is why it is very important they’re here today. They have very important news for everyone, and everyone here should here it because they have followed the Dark Order since the beginning, and they made the Dark Order what it is today. Uno wants to personally thank all the fans for showing up and supporting them.
And that is why it is so important that Uno gets to say this. “The six of us… Are here to stay!” Fans cheer as Uno says Dark Order is forever! A new chapter begins, and that begins with a proclamation, and he knows just who should say it. Negative One is given the mic! Fans cheer but then QT Marshall comes out to ruin everything. He doesn’t know how long AEW has to put up with the “charity case” for. Until he’s 18 or something? Fans boo but QT says he gets it. Negative One’s dad was from right here in Rochester. “But you ain’t your father! Your father’s a legend in AEW! He beat me within five minutes in his first match ever here.”
Uno has to hold Negative One back as QT continues to say that Negative One takes after his MOM! QT says that he didn’t bring his friends out here. So Negative One can get his friends out of here to face QT man to man! Or else QT will go to his private locker room and grab each and every one of his action figures to rip their heads off! But wait, here comes HANGMAN PAGE! The Cowboy is still a friend of the Dark Order, and that means he is a friend of Negative One! QT freaks out, but then turns around for Uno to ROCK him with a forearm! Hangman ROCKS QT back, and then they both toss QT into the ring!
Fans fire up as Vance whips QT into a corner for Silver to GAMANGIRI! Silver feeds QT to Reynolds’ ROLLING ELBOW! ENZIGURI! STUNNER! GERMAN SUPLEX! QT flounders from the Beaver Boy Blitz, but then he’s fed to the DISCUS from Vance! Brodie would be proud of that one! Uno has Brodie Jr. tell ’em! “QT, QT, QT. I would pin you right now, but y’know what? I’m gonna wait until I’m 19.” Negative One makes a promise about a decade in the making, will he follow in his father’s footsteps and whoop QT’s ass in his AEW debut?
Good ol’ JR joins commentary!
Jim Ross lends his analysis to the second hour, and it’s going to be a slobber knocker!
Penta Oscuro w/ Alex Abrahantes & Rey Fenix VS Rush w/ La Faccion Ingobernale!
Death Triangle is looking for revenge on #LFI, and that begins with the clash of #CeroMiedo and El Toro Blanco! Will Penta look to bury the White Bull under the cover of night? Or will Rush go on a stampede and start towards the top of AEW?
The bell rings and fans rally behind Penta. Rush rushes in but Penta dodges to CHOP! Rush CHOPS and it’s a CHOP fight already! Fast and furious, back and forth, CHOP after CHOP after CHOP! Penta spins to CHOP, then he runs, but Rush follows to CHOP! Penta jumps up but Rush denies the rana. Penta still fires off fists, then hooks the arms,. Rush slips out to throw a body shot, and he suplexes, only for Penta to cradle counter! TWO, and Penta SUPERKICKS Rush down! Rush bails out but Penta builds speed as fans rally. Penta slides but Rush dodges to waistlock. Penta switches but Rush elbows out hard!
Rush whips but Penta stops from hitting steps. Penta elbows Rush back, then whips him at the steps. Rush stops himself, but Penta goes up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Fans fire up while Jose fans Rush off. Penta stands Rush up to CHOP again. Penta gets back in the ring, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta builds speed but Rush gets in to DECK Penta! Rush mocks Cero Miedo and then he soaks up the heat. Rush stands on Penta’s head, drags him up and throws body shots. Rush whips corner to corner and clotheslines, then he whips the other way for a SPALSH! And then a snapmare and basement dropkick! Rush does push-ups just to show off before the cover, TWO!
Rush is annoyed but he drags Penta up. Fans rally but Rush is after the mask! The ref reprimands, but Penta KICKS Rush! Penta runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges to SLINGBLADE! And then another SLINGBLADE!

Fenix and Andrade get Jose and Alex to separate, but then Alex rushes back in! They brawl up the ramp, which is fine because the ref is EJECTING them! Andrade is confused but Fenix tells Alex to keep after Jose! The sidekicks fight all the way backstage while Penta puts Rush in the ring. Penta climbs up a corner while fans fire up, then leaps, but into Rush’s anti-air dropkick! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Rush is upset but the ropes are the ropes. Rush drags Penta up to wrap on a chinlock, but again Penta gets to the ropes. Rush drags Penta away and turns him from the ropes while leaning on the hold.

Insult to injury before the cradle, RUSH WINS!
Winner: Rush, by pinfall
The White Bull pulled off some major bull, that’s for sure! But will both Lucha Brothers get their revenge on Rush & Andrade soon enough?
Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.
They’re all very happy, and Sonjay says they’re celebrating already because “Samoa Joe decided to crawl out of that hole that he’s been hiding in.” It is official for July 23rd, Death Before Dishonor, and the ultimate celebration begins when Sonjay’s best friend in this entire world, Jay Lethal, pins Samoa Joe to become the NEW ROH World TV Champion! And Lethal says he will tell us God’s honest truth, “I know that this is not going to be an easy fight.” Samoa Joe is one tough champion. But that’s why Lethal isn’t taking him lightly. But they are taking his championship. They all share a laugh, and Singh adds that Lethal will be the new champion! Will Lethal be able to back up all those words? Or will the Samoan Submission Specialist make Lethal suffer?
Tony Nese & Mark Sterling are still looking for signatures.
They go to the Best Friends, Chuck Taylor, Trent Beretta & Orange Cassidy, saying they’re the last signatures the petition needs to remove Swerve Strickland from AEW. After all, Swerve backstabbed Cassidy during the Royal Rampage. Cassidy says he never reads anything without his lawyer present. He has a lawyer? Yes, it’s DANHAUSEN! He has the paperwork right here. Nese says forget asking, he is going to make Cassidy sign. Chuck & Trent step up to push Nese back but Sterling has everyone just hold on a second. There is money to be made here. Nese VS Cassidy for Rampage! Wait, Danhausen has a better idea! Cassidy VS Nese on Rampage! That’s the same idea!
But anyway, if Nese wins, Cassidy has to sign the petition. Danhausen says objection sustained, and Cassidy says he will allow it. Overruled. What? No, Sterling’s the real lawyer, HE allows things! Hearsay! Sterling grumbles and storms off with Nese, but the deal is struck. Will Cassidy win and strike down this frivolous lawsuit?
8 Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Gunn Club VS Fuego Del Sol & Ruffin’ It!
It’s rather surprising that Max Caster, Anthony Bowens and the Ass B- er, Austin & Colten Gunn, are agreeing to team up again after the heated argument that happened last time. But will they be able to let cooler heads prevail and get another win for the team? And of course, Caster has a rap! “Acclaimed & The Gunns-” GASP! Austin snatches the mic from Caster?! Caster is upset but Bowens keeps him from going after Austin. No disses this week, will the Acclaimed Gunn Club hold it together?

Billy is upset that his boys aren’t getting along with his sons again, and Bowens shoves Austin! Austin and Colten CLOBBER The Acclaimed! Billy gets in, and he throws Austin away! And the same to Colten! Billy keeps telling them to cut it out, but then he CLOBBERS Caster! The Ass Man sides with his Ass Boys and Bowens doesn’t understand. What happened to scissor fingers? Billy kicks him low for a FAMOUSER! The Gunn Family sticks together, but will they finally get up to the top where they want to be?
“Malakai Black… We are different kind of men. You collect the weak, I dispose of them. You stab their backs, while I break them. Don’t you understand? You, a man who preys on the flawed, have enraged a man who is flawless! I, who rattles the gates of Heaven, will destroy the gates of Hell! So go ahead and buy yourself a bag of coins, because when I’m done with you, the House of Black will have many eyes to cover. Because the Redeemer is coming, enraged!!” Will Miro’s wrath wreak havoc on Malakai and his entire house?
Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!
La Mera Mera and the Lightning From Down Under are forces of nature to be sure, but the Native Beast & The Problem have brought their umbrellas. Will these Vicious Vixens be safe from the #ThunderStorm? Or will they still be blown away by the AEW Women’s World Champion and the #1 contender?

Storm ROCKS Shafir back with forearms then runs, but the ref is busy keeping Rosa out of the ring, so he misses Nyla SMACK Storm with the umbrella! Nyla shrugs and Shafir fireman’s carries for a WASTELAND SLAM!
Tag to Nyla and Nyla stomps Storm while Dynamite goes picture in picture. Nyla drags Storm up to snap suplex, then roll through to a GOURDBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Storm from Rosa, drags her around and Shafir tags in. They mug Storm, Shafir CLUBS Storm down, then has her on ropes. Shafir chicken wings the arms, drags Storm around, and she taunts Rosa. Storm fights but Shafir spins her for a SAYANAGI! Shafir taunts Rosa more while she paces between her and Storm. Shafir drags Storm up to tag in Nyla and they mug Storm more. Storm hits back, brawls with Nyla, but Nyla throws Storm down by her hair!
Nyla stomps Storm at the ropes and then drags her away. Tag to Shafir, they continue to mug Storm, and then Nyla gives Shafir a boost for the SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Shafir snarls while fans rally up. Shafir grabs Storm’s hand to bend the fingers and drag her to the corner. Tag to Nyla and she gets Storm’s legs to drop an elbow on the knee. Nyla runs to SPLASH down! Cover, TWO! Rosa rallies the fans but Nyla drags Storm up. Nyla scoops and SLAMS Storm, then drags her up again for another scoop. Storm slips off and RAMS Nyla into a corner! Dynamite returns to single picture as Storm O’Conner Rolls Nyla back!
Nyla rolls through but Storm is on her with a SLEEPER! Storm becomes a backpack but Nyla THROWS her off! Storm crawls, fans rally, hot tag to Rosa! Fans fire up as Rosa goes up top and leaps, CROSSBODY! She bounces off Nyla to then HIP ATTACK Shafir! Rosa CHOPS and forearms over and over and fans fire up! Rosa roars and ROCKS Nyla again! Rosa whips but Nyla blocks by holding ropes! Rosa keeps trying but Nyla swings on her. Rosa dodges, drop toeholds Nyla to ropes, and then stomps away! The ref counts, Rosa runs side to side to DROPKICK! Rosa says una mas, and she runs again, to DROPKICK!
Nyla flounders but fans fire up with Rosa. Still one more, but Nyla reels Rosa into an URENAGE! Tag to Shafir and she hurries after Rosa. Rosa kicks at Shafir but Shafir cartwheels through to get an arm. Shafir pump handles Rosa and hits a FALL AWAY SLAM! Cover, Storm breaks it! Nyla BOOTS Storm and reels her in but Storm SATELLITE DDTS! Storm ducks the roundhouse to GERMAN SUPLEX Shafir! Fans fire up as Storm fires up and hits the HIP ATTACK in the corner! Storm goes up for Rosa to drag Shafir out. Rosa scoops Shafir, Storm is ready on the corner, THUNDERSTORM DRIVER!! Cover, Thunder & Storm win!!
Winners: Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm, by pinfall
And with that, #ThunderStorm wins! Will we see these two continue on as a team? What about the chances of them clashing for the AEW Women’s World Championship once again?
Tony Schiavone is backstage with The Baddies.
Jade Cargill, the still undefeated TBS Champion, tells Tony to “cut the sh*t,” then she asks Stokely Hathaway, “What the hell was that last week?” He says hold on, listen! If a wrestling company can have an Interim World Champion, then they can have an Interim Baddie! Leila Grey walks in and offers a handshake to Jade. Jade refuses, but what about Kiera Hogan? Nope, still rejected. Stokely knows the world wants to know what exactly he said to Leila last week, and he’ll tell us! $1100, because that is what it cost to get Leila to step up.
Stokely knows his math, and he knows 3v2 is better than 2v2. “And it takes a special type of finesse to get someone to go from wanting to beat your ass, to saving your ass.” And you know what they say, “Trust the process.” Stokely goes to put his arm around Leila but she shrugs that off. Jade says if Leila fails to deliver, then that’s Stokely’s ass. Jade and Kiera head out, but Stokely asks if Leila trusts him while offering a fist bump. She doesn’t respond, but he says they’ll talk later. Will Leila prove she can be a true Baddie through and through?
Tony Schiavone now interviews Daniel Garcia.
Garcia requested this time to call out Wheeler Yuta. “Hey, Yuta, last week on Dark, I put my foot on your neck and I held your title above my head, and there wasn’t a damn thing you could do about it. Last week at Blood & Guts, I spent an hour with you in the ring. I felt all that you could give me, you had my blood on your hands. But I’ve determined that you don’t strike an ounce of fear into my heart whatsoever. You’re not scaring nobody with that fake tough guy act, let me tell you.” And at Death Before Dishonor, don’t be scared, Yuta. Give Garcia that shot for the ROH Pure Championship, and whether he’s a pro-wrestler or a sports entertainer, you damn sure will call him the best.
Cash Wheeler says, “So we call ourselves ‘7 Star FTR,’ the living legends. We are the current AAA, IWGP and ROH Tag Team Champions, and I can stand here before you and comfortably say that no match has ever taken more out of us than when we won these at ROH Supercard of Honor.” But uh, we’re just a few weeks away from Death Before Dishonor and the PPV return of ROH. And despite the fact that they beat the Briscoes for the ROH titles, despite the fact that they’re on the run of a lifetime, there are still some people who doubt they’re the best in the world, and that doesn’t sit right with them.
Dax Harwood says, “That’s the beauty of professional wrestling. You can think whatever you want, believe whatever you want, but you can also be wrong. If ROH wants to sell a PPV, they gotta put on the rematch of the decade. So I’m telling you right now, Briscoes VS FTR II, one last time to prove who is the absolute best tag team on this planet! Briscoes, if you want to be a king, you got to kill a king. And we ain’t dead yet.” #TopGuys out. FTR is calling out Jay & Mark Briscoe, will Death Before Dishonor 2022 be one for the ages?
Interim AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Brody King!
The Best in the World is away, but the Maniac vows to prove he is the rightful owner of that title. But will he be able to remind everyone that he’s also the scariest monster in wrestling today? Or will the House of Black soon shine in the shadows with gold on the mantle?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and even if this is for the interim title, this fight is going to be legit!
Fans are thunderous already as Moxley and Brody stare down. They slowly circle, tie up, and Brody puts Mox in a corner. The ref counts, Brody lets off to CHOP, and Moxley staggers away to the opposite corner. Fans fire up as Brody watches Moxley get back up. Moxley gets in Brody’s face, and right up in there! Brody and Moxley talk some smack and then Moxley fires forearms and CHOPS! Brody ROCKS Moxley, eggs him on, and Moxley throws a forearm back, only for Brody to ROCK Moxley again! Moxley rebounds but Brody throws him out. Brody then pursues, CLUBS Moxley to the timekeeper’s area, then CLUBS him again.
Brody whips Moxley into railing! Fans fire up, Brody stands Moxley up to CHOP him, and the ring count climbs. Brody ROCKS Moxley, follows him around the way, and then runs in, only to be sent into steel steps! Fans fire up and Moxley brings Brody up to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP into the railing! Moxley refreshes the ring count, headlocks Brody and brings him around the way, then throws knees. Moxley even fishhooks Brody and brings him around, only for Brody to back drop him onto the ramp! Moxley writhes and Brody shakes out the stars. Brody drags Moxley up to whip him into the timekeeper’s area! Moxley tumbles with the table while the ring count climbs!
Brody storms up to Moxley to CHOP him against railing! Brody then puts Moxley back in the ring at 6 of 10, only for Moxley to dropkick the legs out! Moxley throws knees, gets the leg and DRAGON SCREWS! Moxley steps through to have a FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! Fans “WOO~!” while Brody endures. Brody clubs Moxley’s legs, pries at the hold, but Moxley keeps the hold on. Brody keeps clubbing, but Moxley lets off. Moxley shoots in to get the leg but Brody CLUBS him. Moxley trips Brody to drop an elbow on the leg, and then another. Brody clamps on with a chinlock to keep Moxley down but Moxley fights free.
Moxley turns Brody over as fans rally, and Moxley hooks the leg. DEATH LOCK SNAPPER! Brody clutches his leg and gets to ropes but Moxley is after him. Moxley stands Brody up but the forearms start flying again. Fans rally as the forearms go back and forth, Moxley gets boxing elbows going, but runs into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Cover, TWO! Moxley survives and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Brody shakes out the bad leg while Moxley crawls to the apron. Brody storms over that way, BLASTS Moxley off the apron and Moxley crashes into the railing! Brody goes out after Moxley and drags him up to scoop and SLAM on the floor! Moxley writhes but Brody KICKS him in the back. Brody paces around, drags Moxley up, and CHOPS him again! Moxley gets into the ring but Brody pursues. Brody clamps onto Moxley with a neck wrench, and even digs his forearms in. Moxley endures, Brody shifts to a cobra twist and he CLUBS away on Moxley’s chest! Cover, TWO! Brody keeps cool and he kicks Moxley against ropes.
Brody scrapes Moxley, CHOKES him against the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Fans rally, Brody throws forearms but Moxley CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Brody just CHOPS Moxley right off his feet! Moxley flops over onto his face but Brody stands him back up to CHOP again. Moxley staggers around and falls into a corner, but Brody storms right up after him. Brody drags Moxley up, CHOPS him again, and Moxley is frozen in place! Brody CHOPS him again, and CHOPS him again! Moxley falls down and Brody eggs the fans on as Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans boo as Brody eggs Moxley on, then fireman’s carries.
Moxley fights with elbows, Brody starts to drop, but then Brody stands back up! The elbows keep coming, Brody powers up again, and he runs for a corner! Moxley slips off, Brody hits buckles, and Moxley gets to the opposite corner. Brody runs corner to corner, to CANNONBALL into buckles! Moxley avoids disaster and Brody crashes ‘n’ burns! Fans fire up and the standing count starts while both men are down. Moxley and Brody stir, and Moxley runs in to clothesline! Moxley hoists Brody up, CHOPS him, CHOPS again, then climbs up after him. Moxley CLUBS and CLAWS Brody’s back, but Brody throws body shots.

Brody moves around but ends up in the BULLY CHOKE!! Brody is fading, the ref calls it! Moxley wins!!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still Interim AEW World Champion)
It was a fight to be sure, but Moxley holds onto the title! Who will step up to him next while we await CM Punk’s return? As for Brody King, fans cheer his valiant effort, and Malakai Black walks out. Malakai looks Brody in the eye, and pats him on the back. But then DARBY ALLIN AND STING appear?! The #RelentlessIcons show Brody King respect! Darby says Brody kicked his ass last week, and it doesn’t matter what anyone says! Brody EARNED his spot here. Darby offers a handshake, but Brody leaves Darby hanging. The House of Black doesn’t do anything for respect, but will they take on Darby & Sting for supremacy in AEW?
A great episode for Dynamite, but they sure stretched that first hour. Only two of the six matches happened before Jim Ross joined commentary at the halfway point, and I would’ve liked if they’d tried to split things up a bit more evenly. But even with that, we got a great opener with the TNT Championship. It was obvious the Street Fight would bring out a bunch of American Top Team scrubs for Wardlow to throw around like nothing and then he wins the title. This is still great for Wardlow, but maybe it would’ve been more powerful if he’d won this title sooner, or if it was just Scorpio VS Wardlow 1v1 in a real epic match, not a Heel using all his resources to protect himself.
So apparently Mark Sterling, having been fired by Jade Cargill and not having MJF around, has resorted to filing frivolous lawsuits as his gimmick. It’s pretty funny, though, as he fails to convince Faces to side with him, a Heel. The promo with Best Friends and Danhausen was really funny with Danhausen just spouting legal terminology. Nese VS Cassidy will surely go Cassidy’s way so he can keep building momentum towards a title. Pac defends his All-Atlantic Championship at Rev-Pro’s event this weekend, but I’m pretty sure Pac retains, and then maybe we can get Pac VS Cassidy for this title at All Out.
That’s made even more likely by how Miro is going after Malakai Black. Miro had a very good promo as always, and he’s going to have an awesome match with Malakai. We got quite the promo segment with Christian, Luchasaurus and Matt Hardy. Hardy’s line about the “Michael Jordan of A-Holes” was really good, and of course Christian stoops to bringing up what happened with Jeff Hardy. A bit cheap, but of course Luchasaurus demolishes Matt Hardy. Sounds like this is setting up a tag match where Jungle Boy joins Matt Hardy to take on Christian & Luchasaurus, and we’ll see if JB can turn Luchasaurus back to the light side or if Luchasaurus stays Heel. Honestly, Luchasaurus could probably benefit most from his Heel turn.
We got a good Blood & Guts aftermath promo where a few different guys got to say their piece, and of course we’re getting more Eddie VS Jericho. Tay Conti hurting Ruby Soho could be a way to give us a Mixed Tag before the final blow-off. And adding Claudio VS Hager to things, that match is going to be great, and I would think Claudio wins to stay hot in AEW. We got a very good tag match out of Keith & Swerve VS Butcher & Blade, and I did like that they at least teased the “accidental attack misunderstanding.” Swerve totally understood the Pounce was an accident, and they finished off Butcher & Blade. Hobbs & Starks had a very fired up promo, and the Bucks had a good on to set up another Triple Threat for the titles. I would think the Bucks win that, just as Jurassic Express did.
FTR had a good promo to call out the Briscoes, and you can bet that match will be added to the Death Before Dishonor card. That will be a great match, and FTR will win so they can move on to face Young Bucks at All Out. Garcia had a good promo to call out Yuta, their ROH Pure Championship match will be great stuff, and that could probably go either way. I think Joe VS Lethal for the ROH World TV Championship could go either way, too, because Lethal has Singh and Sonjay on his side to overbook that match. Maybe after DBD, Tony Khan and other executives find a way to put on an ROH TV show, but no idea if I’ll be able to cover it if it happens.
We got a very fun segment out of The Dark Order and QT Marshall. Great to see Hangman join up with Dark Order again, and though not delivered with quite the stank it should have, Negative One at least got through his line about sparing QT more humiliation until he’s an adult. It would be amazing if 10 years from now, we do see Negative One/Brodie Lee Jr. face an old man QT and win in five minutes like his father. And moreover, it was good that Evil Uno assured us that the members of Dark Order we have left are going to stay in AEW one way or another. It’s a shame the faction ran out of steam like it did, but maybe they can rebuild.
We got a pretty good tag match out of #ThunderStorm VS Nyla & Marina, and of course the Faces win. Rosa and Storm can easily have another title match as part of the July themed episodes, like Fyter Fest or Fight for the Fallen. Stretching this to All Out in September would just seem odd to me, so maybe someone comes out of another story primed to face Rosa. Jade not accepting Leila Grey is a natural move for their story, but who knows where it goes from here. Leila could prove herself worthy, because I don’t see Stokely being fired by Jade so soon, and then we could have that Six Woman Tag I expected but Leila in for Red Velvet.
We got a pretty good 8 Man Tag, with the dysfunction finally adding something to the match. The Gunn Club turning on The Acclaimed was quite the surprise, though, but I had a feeling Billy was going to find a reason to be proud of his sons. And this could be the Face turn for The Acclaimed, and that is going to be great because fans love them. Penta VS Rush was awesome stuff, especially with how Alex and Jose got in on it. A Six Man Tag of La Faccion Ingobernable VS Death Triangle where Jose and Alex are the third men would be pretty fun.
And of course, we got an awesome main event out of Moxley and Brody. Moxley was of course retaining, but we all know Brody is badass, and it was cool for Darby to show him respect. Even with Miro coming for Malakai, we need to get House of Black VS Darby & Sting first. Miro could even go after Malakai after the match, regardless of who wins. I don’t know if it has to be a full Face turn for Miro, but he will come off the Face against Malakai since fans still love Miro. As for Mox, the possibilities really are endless for who he can face for the Interim title at All Out. Personally, whether or not Joe wins against Lethal at DBD, give me some Mox VS Joe!
My Score: 8.9/10
NOAH WEEKLY NEWSLETTER VOL.179 ~ 6TH JULY 2022
GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Championship Postponed
Due to Chris Ridgeway being unable to get a Visa in time for the Nippon Budokan event on July 12th, the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Championship match has been postponed. Therefore, Yoshinari Ogawa and Yuya Susumu will team together against Eita and Kotaro Suzuki. Susumu says he knows he cannot replace Ridgeway, but will fight with him in mind.
Seiki Yoshioka attacks HAYATA (repeatedly)
Following his GHC Junior Heavyweight challenge to HAYATA, Seiki Yoshioka turned the tension up a notch by fighting with HAYATA after the match in Fukushima on the 2nd (HAYATA had made him bleed) and introducing him to his new superkick, and then intruding on the match in Yamagata on the 3rd, which got the match thrown out. Poor HAYATA had been kicked in head quite a few times over the course of the two days, and so was not in any position to speak. Seiki Yoshioka was though, he had taken the belt backstage, and holding it up the camera announced that he was putting everything on the line to win, and he would knock HAYATA out again at The Budokan. Yuya Susumu later posted on his Twitter that he felt he had to apologize for how Yoshioka was behaving.
Speaking of STINGER (HAYATA, Yoshinari Ogawa & Yuya Susumu) came out wearing the green NOAH baseball shirts in Yamagata for the match against Perros Del Mal De Japon (Kotaro Suzuki, NOSAWA Rongai & Super Crazy). They never explained why they were wearing green, and fans were left to speculate that either they were showing their solidarity as NOAH Juniors to Perros, or it was an Ogawa mind game to remind Kotaro where he came from and who he belonged with. The singles match between Kotaro and Ogawa on July 2nd was naturally ruined by Perros who got the match thrown out by intrusion. Given NOSAWA’S comments backstage to Kotaro about “trying harder”, I am wondering how long Kotaro is going to put up with this.
Kenoh, Kojima (and Kobashi)
Following two frustrating pre matches in which neither the champion or the challenger won over the other, and an escalation in “competition” where Kenoh did press ups backstage next to a fallen Satoshi Kojima in Fukushima, and Kojima demonstrated Lion press ups to Kenoh in Yamagata (who comically appeared in front of him and then attacked him screaming about “The Mark of The Lion” and how if he missed it so much he should wear his new t-shirt), Kenoh sought advice from the master of the lariat, Kenta Kobashi by making a first visit to his gym. Lariats are not something Kenoh has used before, so it will be interesting to see if the teaching he got from Kobashi was how to throw them or how to withstand them.
GHC Heavyweight Tag Champion Humiliation
Satoshi Kojima might have had a frustrating stalemate, but at least Kojima was spared the humiliation that the GHC Heavyweight Tag Champions endured, when again they lost via Masa Kitamiya submitting to Hideki Suzuki in Yamagata. Suzuki had said he was doing a kind of scouting mission as he wanted to know their strengths and weaknesses and the strengths and weaknesses of their techniques. Timothy Thatcher was given a firsthand look, when the champions demonstrated their new tandem move, a double powerbomb, to win the match.
Go Shiozaki & Shuhei Taniguchi miss events
Go Shiozaki was absent from the 2nd and 3rd July weekend events due to being a close contact with someone with Coronavirus. This necessitated a card change as it was almost last minute. What was last minute (as in about seven minutes before the event started) was Shuhei Taniguchi being withdrawn from the event due to mild heatstroke.
Yoshiki Inamura’s Fire Festival 2022
Although Yoshiki Inamura did not defeat Masato Tanaka, his Fire Festival opened with a time limit draw at thirty minutes. Inamura didn’t feel that he had approached Tanaka with this, but has sworn to beat everyone else and return to NOAH with the sword.
ELSEWHERE IN NOAH
– Tadasuke is wondering why there has been no comeback from the NOAH Junior Regulars regarding his banishment of Haoh (who seems to have vanished off the face of the earth). I think Tadasuke will get his answer when NOAH are back in Tokyo.
– Alejandro greeted the Yamagata crowd as the Fukushima one, to be scolded by Hajime Ohara for his mistake.
– Kenoh’s Michinoku Pro rival, Fujita “Jnr” Hayato, made his return to the ring following a five year absence due to cancer. He named two people he wanted to fight, Hiromu Takahashi and of course, Kenoh. Kenoh says that he should fight Hayato first. Not only did Hayato mention him first, but even by the Japanese (gojūon) syllabary Kenoh (i.e. KE) comes first. Kenoh then returned to his preoccupation that seems to be obsessing him these days, “The Lion Mark” (New Japan logo).
– Kenoh grumbled that he preferred the sea to rivers just before he posted a video of himself doing Lion Push ups by one.
