NJPW and AXS set the scene for this historic crossover event!

History is made as for the first time in almost 60 years, Madison Square Garden plays host two new promotions! Ring of Honor joins New Japan Pro-Wrestling for this event!

The Switchblade reigns after defeating The Ace, and will defend in the world’s most famous arena against a man he’s already defeated. The Rainmaker wants revenge from the defeats in the G1 Climax and Wrestle Kingdom 13, and he blazed a trail through the New Japan Cup for this opportunity! Will Kazuchika Okada take down Jay White to become a FIVE-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion? Or will he simply Breath with the Switchblade as the Cutthroat Era continues?

Plus, the Uncontrollable Charisma fell short in the New Japan Cup, and his mission to be NJPW’s first dual champion has been delayed. And now, the Golden Star that eliminated him from the cup comes for his belt! Will Tetsuya Naito stay Tranquilo as well as retain the IWGP Intercontinental Championship? Or will Kota Ibushi soar to new heights by adding the title to his resume?

But before even that, NJPW’s partnership with Rev-Pro continues to grow stronger as the Undisputed British Heavyweight title is on the line! The Submission Master failed to win this year’s New Japan Cup, because The Ace got revenge for last year! Hiroshi Tanahashi’s defeat of Zack Sabre Jr. earned him this shot, will he take a different heavyweight title for his own? Or will he #JustTapOut to ZSJ in MSG?

As always, Taka Michinoku gets a mic and welcomes us to #ZackSabreTime. And he asks the New York fans, in English, “What do you think about this match? I said, who’s gonna win this match!?” But anytime, anywhere against anyone, all ZSJ’s opponents can do is #JustTapOut! The winner will be the Submission Master, Zack Sabrrre Junior~!

Backstage interview

“Strong Style is dead! Sabreism lives.” ZSJ wants more challengers, but there’s no one left. ZSJ won this title off Tomohiro Ishii in the Tokyo Dome, in front of the largest crowd for a British title in about 400 years or so. Ridiculous! But then he defends this title in Madison Square Garden. Him, a 31-year-old “Vegan Socialist”, is taking over the industry while barely breaking a sweat. Well now he wants the IWGP Heavyweight Championship! He’s had one shot so far but he almost broke Okada back then. Now he’ll finish whoever it is. Tanahashi is done, but what? Naito’s next? “Naito’s made of sponge.” And ZSJ almost did in Ibushi, too.

Who else? Jay White? That “nob head” can’t even lace ZSJ’s boots. White’s the champion not because he’s the best, but because everyone else has failed. ZSJ won’t fail to take him down, like he hasn’t failed British wrestling. This isn’t the Rev-Pro title, it is the British title, and it represents a wrestling scene he’s had in his “soft, moisturized hands” for a decade now. “See what I do with NJPW.” Taka adds that this isn’t the Strong Style Era, it’s Zack’s Time. Will Zack’s time come sooner rather than later?


IWGP Intercontinental Championship: Tetsuya Naito VS Kota Ibushi!

The leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon wants to become the first dual Intercontinental and Heavyweight champion in NJPW history, but he hit a speed bump already. The Golden Star beat him in the opening round of the New Japan Cup and now challenges for his title! Will Naito stay Tranquilo and keep his Destino on track? Or will Ibushi further derail it by following in the footsteps of both The Ace and the King of Strong Style?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Naito takes his time removing his entrance gear as per usual. Ibushi patiently waits, so Naito takes a little longer with those pants just because he can. The ref asks he hurry so Naito takes them all the way off to then toss the pants at the ref. The ref puts the pants aside and we begin!

Fans lose their minds immediately for these two fan favorites. Naito and Ibushi slowly circle and approach, but Naito quickly side steps Ibushi. Ibushi keeps his cool as he and Naito go again. Naito side steps again and wants Ibushi to take it easy. Ibushi and Naito finally tie up and Naito manages to push Ibushi to the ropes. Ibushi turns it around but lets up with shoulder pats. Naito kicks and elbows back! Naito whips but Ibushi reverses, but Naito sunset flips only for Ibushi to roll through. Ibushi goes to kick but Naito gets clear and arm-drags.

Fans want “One More Time!” but the ref wants them to return to the ring. Naito stomps Ibushi then drags Ibushi up for a whip to the other railing! Ibushi ends up in the lap of the front row! Naito returns to the ring and lets the 20 count begin. The count passes 5 as fans help Ibushi stand. Ibushi tumbles over at 8 and gets in at 11. Naito keeps on Ibushi with forearms and a toying kick. Ibushi grins as Naito stands him up. Naito throws in a back elbow then whips corner to corner. Naito hits the jump kick and sweep, to swinging dropkick, cabron! He adds a neckbreaker and covers, TWO! The champion is in control while we go to break.

NJPW on AXS returns and Naito takes his time bringing Ibushi back up. Naito puts Ibushi in a cravat but fans rally up. Ibushi endures the neck crank, then stands up to fight out. Naito clubs him down then whips, but Ibushi reverses, only for Naito to reverse back. Fans duel as Naito runs, but Ibushi dropkicks him down! Both men are down but the dueling grows stronger.

Ibushi drags Naito up and everyone knows what’s coming, DEADLIFT- No, Naito fights free! Ibushi goes limp, Naito drags Ibushi back out! But Ibushi slips out and they brawl on the apron.

Naito boots Ibushi but Ibushi SUPER STEINERS Naito off the apron!! Fans lose their minds for that one as both men crash to the ground! The referee checks on both men but they’re somehow okay. Fans shout “MAMMA MIA!” like another promotion as the 20 count begins. Ibushi stands at 8 and drags Naito up at 10. He puts Naito in at 12, then climbs up to springboard stomp! Cover, TWO!!

Winner: Kota Ibushi, by pinfall; NEW IWGP Intercontinental Champion

The Golden Star has ascended to the level of his wrestling gods! Nakamura, Tanahashi and now Ibushi! Will the trend continue and lead Ibushi to one day be atop the mountain?

Backstage Interview

Kota Ibushi is naturally very happy, and apologizes to those who don’t know Japanese. But that’s okay, there are subtitles now. Ibushi continues by saying he wanted this title so badly. He wanted to be IWGP Intercontinental Champion, and now he can’t believe he’s done it. It took a long time, but he got to compete against so many. Ibushi speaks to the two “gods of wrestling”, and he still sees those men that way. To win this belt here, with Tanahashi in the building, meant so much to him. Ibushi and Naito are the same age, so Ibushi thinks of Naito as a rival. Ibushi beat his rival, and has the title he’s wanted for so long, in the Madison Square Garden. Winning it here is even more meaningful. There is still much more Ibushi wants to say, but he will move on to the next challenge for now.

Ibushi wishes to call someone out. There is one match he wants right away: the man who beat him at the G1 Climax, and who just tonight defeated “god” Tanahashi. Zack Sabre Jr, come challenge Ibushi! Ibushi thanks Naito and takes his leave. Will he and ZSJ battle for the Intercontinental Championship? Will it be title for title?!

Backstage Interview

Okada gives his thoughts towards this entire G1 Supercard event. “Jay White was really tough. As expected from an IWGP Heavyweight Champion.” White was strong, and will still grow stronger after this loss. Okada and White will surely have many more matches in the future. But Okada will keep beating him “convincingly”. But Okada is thankful to have strong opponents. As for Madison Square Garden itself, the view upon entering was truly incredible. Different from the Tokyo Dome. Only a select view get to see that view. “It’s a magnificent arena with a phenomenal crowd.” This will be a wonderful memory for Okada. It isn’t good-bye, because Okada plans to come back again. He forgets what else he wanted to say, though.

The size of the crowd proves the power of NJPW and Japanese wrestling in general. Okada will return home with pride. He also knows the many major wrestling events going on at this same time, and welcomes those other companies to try their best to outdo NJPW. With Okada back on top, will NJPW grow even stronger than ever before?



My Thoughts:

An amazing two hours for NJPW on AXS, and this is only half of what we’re getting! The Undisputed British Heavyweight Championship was a nice surprise to put on this half, as Tanahashi and ZSJ can do no wrong against each other. Naturally, the British wrestler retains the British title, and ZSJ’s interview promo at the end was superb. No curses, just good ol’ Britishisms and trash talk. The Intercontinental Championship was another great match, with so much story between Ibushi and Naito. I was really surprised but also pleased to see Ibushi won. As his own personal story goes, he obviously wants to follow in the footsteps of Tanahashi and Shinsuke Nakamura. Him calling out ZSJ was also a great surprise, and whether it’s for one belt or both, Ibushi VS ZSJ is going to be another can-do-no-wrong match.

And obviously, the main event, the grudge match, White VS Okada, that was incredible. The pace was methodical, and just kept from dragging on, but even that dragging paid off with that exchange at the end. It is great to see Okada be the conquering hero and get that belt back, as some fans were starting to doubt the legitimacy of White as top guy. There will surely be rematches between these two, as Okada says himself. Okada’s fifth reign has a lot to live up to after that historic fourth, so hopefully there’s something to help ramp it up fast.

My Score: 9.1/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Victory Road Results & Match Ratings: 9.23.2022

Victory Road is the last speed bump before Bound for Glory! Main Event promises to be a bloody mess with Barbed Wire Massacre!



Victory Road is here and we’ve got an interesting card on the docket. Delirious challenges Mike Bailey for the X Division Championship, Triple Threat Revolver number one contender match for the X Division, Barbed Wire Massacre and a few higher profile bouts without a huge gimmick.

Mickie James takes on her first real opponent, Gisele Shaw, during this “Last Rodeo” tour she’s doing. Killer Kelly also gets a somewhat legit opponent in Tasha Steelz. We also get Masha’s choice in the Pick Your Poison angle. Max the Impaler will take on Jordynne Grace, as a way to soften up the champion for Masha before Bound for Glory.

So let’s see how this show shakes out!


  • Tasha Steelz w/Savannah Evans vs Killer Kelly: No Contest? – **
  • X Division Championship: Speedball Mike Bailey (c) vs Delirious: Bailey retains via Flamingo Driver – ***
  • Honor No More (PCO & Vincent) vs Motor City Machine Guns: MCMG wins via Dirt Bomb – *** 1/4
  • Mickie James vs Gisele Shaw: Mickie wins via Mick-DT – ***
  • X Division Triple Threat Revolver Match: Mia Yim vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Alex Zayne vs Kenny King vs Yuya Uemura vs Frankie Kazarian vs Black Taurus : Kaz wins via Slingshot Cutter – *** 1/4
  • Honor No More (Eddie Edwards & OGK w/Maria Kanellis) vs Heath, Josh Alexander & Rich Swann: Eddie wins via Die Hard Flowsion – *** 1/4
  • Max the Impaler w/James Mitchell vs Jordynne Grace:  Jordynne wins via Grace Driver – *** 1/2
  • Barbed Wire Massacre Match: Moose vs Sami Callihan vs Steve Maclin: Maclin wins via KIA – **** 1/4


Tasha Steelz w/Savannah Evans vs Killer Kelly

Tasha has had this gimmick of coming down with Disney influenced attire. Mad Hatter, Scar from the Lion King…and today, Ursula. 

Kelly tries to bait in Tasha to come in and choke her, Tasha takes the bait and then they start swinging. Kelly gets the best of the slugfest when she starts incorporating her legs, which she swings them in an interesting way. She even throws a Pump Kick that looks more like a Split that just connected with Tasha’s chin.

Tasha does manage to trip up Kelly on the apron, so she gets a small burst of offense; all while Kelly smiles. Kelly crawling around on the ground and maintaining eye contact even when she’s technically underneath in the match. This definitely screams of a style that probably unlocked a few people’s kinks while watching.

Tasha lands a Shiranui, forward roll Dropkick, into a Rings of Saturn. Kelly powers through (with a little bit of a stumble), sets Tasha in the corner, Fisherman’s Buster into Knees to Face and a German Suplex that Tasha tries to fend off.  Kelly trips up Tasha as she tries to charge the corner, Hesitation Dropkick from Kelly and Savannah interrupts the match a little. Tasha with a desperate Stratusfaction, but only 2, Savannah attacks again this time with a chain, Kelly Stun Guns Savannah and locks in her Killer Klutch with the chain. The referee is going to disqualify her, so she puts the Referee to sleep and Impact officials come out to pull her off.

Sooo…no contest?

X Division Championship: Speedball Mike Bailey (c) vs Delirious

Delirious pushes the pace early in his…unique way, but Speedball eventually takes over with more controlled striking and precision attacks. However, Delirious catches him with his awkward offense and strings together quit a bit, even tying up his wrists and then just throwing him down into the mat. Indelicate offense…but effective.

A Triangle Head and Arm choke has Bailey fading a little, but he manages to get to the ropes and fire back, punctuating his short comeback with the Twisting Shooting Star Press that he does. Delirious counters Bailey, they powder out, Delirious focuses on some big strikes to the back and body. Bailey tries the Flamingo Driver, but the back gives out, Delirious with a Cobra Stretch Backbreaker. Tornado Kicks get countered, Delirious hits a Running Knee of his own, Shadows Over Hell for 2! Strike exchange, Backfists from Delirious, Kicks from Bailey. Standing Moonsault Knees from Bailey, Buzzsaw, no! Cobra Stretch attempt into a Suplex from Delirious. Superkick from Bailey, Flamingo Driver is good and Bailey retains!

That is now 9 defenses for Bailey. You have to think his reign is coming to an end soon, either from his Bound for Glory opponent or Option C. 

Honor No More (PCO & Vincent) vs Motor City Machine Guns

Vinnie and PCO are told to go soften up the number 1 contenders for OGK’s tag gold. You all should know that unless the Steiner Brothers reunite, I won’t ever cheer against The Guns. So…I’m biased here. 

Early on nothing crazy, PCO and Sabin start, they tussle a little, Vinnie and Shelley go back and forth but then MCMG tandem attacks begin. Vinnie starts fighting back once PCO hits the apron to distract Shelley. Satellite Russian Leg Sweep and some tandem work for the Honor No More duo. Vinnie and PCO have a lot of dysfunction, Vinnie clocks PCO a few times accidentally and it looks like we’re heading towards PCO exiting Honor No More.

Sabin starts working over Vinnie, Cradle Shock attempt but Vinnie slips it, fluid Guns action. Stormbreaker style maneuver from Sabin for 2. Double Yakuza on Vinnie, looking for Skull and Bones but Vinnie breaks up the teamwork. Backdrop and both men are down. Vinnie slowly gets to PCO, PCO comes in and murders Sabin in the corner with a hung Codebreaker and a Draping DDT into a nasty Guillotine Leg Drop. Reverse DDT from PCO, tag to Vinnie, Redrum – and Shelley makes the save!

PCO works over Shelley, but Shelley hits the side step and PCO flies to the outside. High Speed Dirt on Vinnie, Double Sole Butts…Dirt Bomb? I think they called their Double Driver Dirt Bomb, its been a little bit since I’ve seen them do it.

Mickie James vs Gisele Shaw

Top wristlock, chain wrestling start. So it’s slow, but showing that Mickie is trying to prove a point and be very methodical. Gisele Shaw eventually breaks out of the Wristlock with an Escalera, into a Rope Walk, Corkscrew, Arm Drag. It’s a little sloppy looking, but never dangerous, just took a beat or two longer than it should have. Mickie however responds by wrestling Gisele down, licking her hand and spanking her.

As I’ve noticed (and many of us as well), Mickie really steers into more of the sexual pop spots. Gisele hits a few strikes and then a Final Cut for 2. Cravat keeps Mickie mostly grounded until she rallies out. Mickie fights out, tries to catch Gisele with a Frakensteiner, Gisele fights her off and dumps her outside. Gisele acts like she’s okay with the count out…charges for a Baseball Slide but Mickie captures her in the ring skirt.

Mickie hits her own sliding attack and starts laying it to Gisele. As soon as they start heading back in, Gisele grabs Mickie during the entrances and flings her into the post. Mickie is still on the outside and Gisele hits a Tornillo. Raining Elbows, into the Cravat again. Gisele really shines when she focuses on her striking ability with a small flair of Lucha. Gisele goes for the Knee, Mickie blocks and forces her into a Split, kicks her while she’s still mid split and hits Knees of her own for 2. A quick few strikes and a neckbreaker give Mickie another near fall.

Full Nelson Backbreaker from Gisele, into a high intensity Flatliner from being bent over her knee. Only 2, Shaw misses with the Spin kick, single like Flapjack from Mickie, Avalanche Thesz Press, kick out by Gisele. Mick-D – NOPE! Enzuigiri from Gisele for 2, so she Exposes her knee to add impact on that V-Trigger style of attack she does. Mickie dodges, counters, Mick-DT and she wins!

The finish definitely looked goofy, but the match in general was solid. 

X Division Triple Threat Revolver Match: Mia Yim vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Alex Zayne vs Kenny King vs Yuya Uemura vs Frankie Kazarian vs Black Taurus

Things start quick, Laredo Kid hits a lot of early high flying offense to take early momentum. Stacks both Mia and Trey together, hits a 450 Splash, tries to pin both of them individually and only gets 2.  Trey eventually counters some of Laredo’s offense, Cheeky Nandos, into the Tiger Feint in the corner. Mia counters him and hits a few big spots, Eat DeFeat on Laredo Kid, and Kid is the first out. Big oof for Laredo Kid.

Alex Zayne is next up. Mia tries to attack him before he comes down to the ramp, he catches her and slams her on the ramp. Trey tries to do something, Zayne stops him, flips back in, and pulls of a combo move of Uranage’ing Mia into Trey only for near falls though. Again Mia takes advantage of being on the top rope, hits both men, tries to follow it up after they powder, but they hit her with the Double Gamengiri. Trey hits the reverse Rana on Zayne, Mia kicks Trey in the back of the head, Crucifix Bomb from Mia to Zayne, and Zayne is eliminated!

Kenny King is next up. This works towards a few weeks ago when Yuya debuted, Mia interrupted the match which cost Kenny the match. So Mia and Kenny have heat, and Kenny tries to leverage the triple threat aspect to his favor. Mia and Trey do start arguing like idiots on who’s gonna fight Kenny. Reverse Powerbomb across the top rope from Kenny, then he hits the Spinebuster on Mia; and Kenny is rolling. Trey and Mia do finally start working together, Mia hits Pay Dirt on Kenny, but he kicks at two and then powders. Mia is too focused on Kenny, Trey and her start to go back and forth, so Kenny Rolls her Up with tights for the elimination.

Yuya Uemura is who we have now. Missile Dropkick entry on Trey, a few quick Crossbodies help him roll pretty fast. Dragon Suplex from Kenny takes the barely upgraded Young Lion down, but only a near fall. Double Overhook Belly to Belly from Yuya gives the young wrestler a chance to fire off one on one with Trey. Trey lights him up with a few kicks, misses the Stomp, Jacky Bryant Snap Kick, Tilt-a-Whirl Argentine Driver gives Trey the pinfall.

KAZ is next! Kenny looks like he’s gonna have Trey and Kaz fight themselves, but tries to shanghai some offense. Kaz doesn’t fall for it, and controls both men for a couple minutes hitting classic Kaz offense, Springboard Guillotine, Running Russian Leg Sweep, just good Kaz stuff.  Pile up in the corner, Trey hits a desperation Meteora, but overshoots the landing so all 3 men are down for a breather. Trey tries to get some fluid action against Kenny, but Kaz plucks him out of the air and chokes him out.

Black Taurus is the final entrant. So next pinfall or submission wins. Taurus dominates early since he’s the fresh man, but then we see Kenny and Kaz pick a few spots to try and keep their chances alive. Taurus has a couple close calls with a few of his bigger spots, Kaz gets a Victory Roll on Taurus, then a Bridging Suplex on Kenny for a double pin, but they kick out. Taurus powders, slingshot Cutter to King and Kaz wins!

Little vignette with Rosemary, Taya, JesSICKa and VXT. Then Bobby Fish shows up. Fish is poking fun at how much heat he’s had lately. So I’d take this, and the rumours about CM Punk not coming back to AEW, as having some weight. Fish’s promo does drag a little, but it stops exactly when it starts to feel too long. He says he’s here to pick a fight and then Raj Singh and Shera show up. 

The crowd trips up Raj during his promo and Bobby pulls the “who are you” angle, and that saves the promo. Shera being turned into a Gatekeeping midcarder is sad, but not unexpected. Raj however is worthless. Rohit Raju was the only talented on from the Desi Hit Squad. 

Honor No More (Eddie Edwards & OGK w/Maria Kanellis) vs Heath, Josh Alexander & Rich Swann

Team IMPACT is flowing early. The only tag that HNM makes early with when Eddie decides to duck Josh in the beginning. Aside from that, Mike Bennet is getting worn out like barn shoes for a good five minutes.

Of course, eventually Honor No More grab a foot, cause some trips, take shortcuts and get back to a level of parity. Nothing about this match as really stuck out beyond usual 6 man stuff. OGK manages to rip Heath and Josh off the apron to keep Rich isolated, but again, nothing really mind shattering. As things start to break down and Josh gets in with Eddie, there’s heavy moves that connect. Blue Thunder Bomb, Back Breakers, its just more of the Kings Road style of match. In which the slow build through the match is part of the story telling and we’re getting to wrinkles. Eddie hits a Tiger Driver after OGK hit a few running spots, only 2. Another Tiger Driver + Just the Tip, and Rich breaks up the pin.

Rich was on the apron, had the chance to tag Josh, but decides to Senton into the pile of Honor No More. Maria and Taven get involved while Rich and Heath are down on the outside, Die Hard Flowsion, and Honor No More wins!

The take away of course is the fact that Rich chose to attack the pile instead of backing up Josh. So the whole conspiracy theory concept will probably continue for Josh. He’s gonna go full DTA at this point, unless Ethan Page returns. 

Max the Impaler w/James Mitchell vs Jordynne Grace

One of the few times I can type the sentence, Jordynne is losing the power game here. Max just ragdolls Jordynne, forcing Jordynne to try and be the agile one. Jordynne chops, and Max doesn’t move. Jordynne tries to lift, and there’s no give. Forearms and rope assisted offense finally starts to rock Max a little, but they get up quickly. Jordynne dives, and Max just whips her down into the apron.

Max literally has Jordynne pinned against the ringpost as they lift her up off her feet by the neck. Max slides in occasionally to break the counts, but just continues to impose their will on Jordynne. Jordynne barely maanges to counter a Powerbomb into a Back Body Dorp, and Jordynne finally isn’t getting beat on. She tries to do something to Max, but Max drives her into the post and then misses a Spear.

Jordynne goes for a bunch of slaps and the Aja Kong style backfist, before a Hip Attack into a Vader Bomb, for 2. A quick burst of offense has really been the first time in a while that Jordynne had any forward momentum here. Max tries to lift Jordynne for a Death Valley, Jodynne fights off, hits the ropes and then eats a Spear from Max for a 2 count.

Sunset Bomb from Jordynne gives her some determination, snap Grace Driver and Jordynne wins!

Jordynne names her Pick Your Poison choice. Allie Katch in a Monster’s Ball Match. I mean…I like Allie Katch, but she’s not nearly the obstacle that Max was. So it really fell flat. 

Barbed Wire Massacre Match: Moose vs Sami Callihan vs Steve Maclin

Maclin coming out in the Punisher paint is pretty cool, while Sami comes out with some flannel looking like Cactus Jack.

After a small stall, Sami incites both men. Sami ducks Moose and Moose ends up Pouncing Maclin through a door. Then Sami hits the Piledriver on Moose, but just starts looking around since he doesn’t want this to end early. Moose goes for a rope run, but stops since he forgot about the barbed wire, Sami tries to take advantage but Moose shoves him into it, and Sami just laughs and screams “I like it!”. Sami tosses Moose and Moose turns it into a Tope con Hilo onto Maclin. Now they brawl on the outside.

Sami slams Moose into the guardrail and clocks Maclin for good measure. Maclin has literally not been able to get out of the gates. Sami goes after Maclin a little and that just ends up pissing him off. So when Sami gets distracted with his theater of pain, Maclin starts to lay into Sami, using the barbed wire, stairs, Sami counters and we start getting to some big haymakers. Lariats, Suplexes, just going for a few different home run shots until they all slowly rise for the Fighting Spirit spot.

Maclin and Moose team up a little on Sami, Moose throws Sami into one side of the ring, then he drapes Maclin over the top of another barbed wire covered rope, Sami pops up and Suplexes Moose into the barbed wire. Sami grabs a barbed wire chair, Maclin and Sami jockey for positioning, but Sami Suplexes Maclin onto the chair. Sami also pulls out a Barbed Wire N64 Controller. See unlike the pen from yesterday, this one is actually a little clever.

Sami puts Maclin in a Crossface with the N64 wire, Maclin fights out, Skuds Moose, Busaiku Knee to Sami, Moose pulls out Maclin and Powerbombs him onto the apron. Chokeslam directly onto the barebed wire, but Sami kicks out. Lights Out attempt, but Maclin hits him with the chair and hits KIA. Sami breaks it up with the barbed wire ball. Sami looks to be setting up a barbed wire table with designs on sending Moose through it. Sami plays to the crowd, Maclin comes up from behind him and locks in a Sleeper. Sami slumps down, then climbs up to the top rope with the barbed wire chair and jumps at Moose. The table doesn’t break, but that’s almost worse since Maclin just buries Moose against the guardrail.

Barbed Wire Bat versus Barbed Wire Trash Can Lid when Maclin gets back in. Sami and the bat win, as he even does the sit out bat drop with the “Bang Bang” flourish for the obvious Foley reference. Slap fight, and then Sami Powerbombs Steve through another door. Cactus Driver ’97 and…Maclin kicks out! Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, Maclin Uppercuts the balls and hits KIA on the piece of Door left in the middle of the ring! MACLIN WINS!

Overall Score: 7.25/10

So fun takeaways here is that Maclin got the big win, so he should be in line for a well deserved push. Josh Alexander should start a becoming an island, which plays into Honor No More’s hands. Bobby Fish showing up could lead to some fun matches and you can’t be mad at Frankie Kazarian being in an X Division Championship match for the first time in like 8 years.

Also I do appreciate that Raven is the Hall of Fame nominee this year. He’s a blast from the past, who wasn’t really active on the roster when they got inducted. So it’s just a little refreshing.

I’m not gonna sit here like the event was super important since none of the matches were really worth going out to find, except for the main event. Nothing was bad, we moved along a lot of storylines and even got a debut I wasn’t expecting. So it’s a decent show. Must see? Nope. But if you’ve got the time and like the product; you won’t be mad.

Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker VS Hook & Action Bronson!

The Jericho Appreciation Society decided to poke at the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange might’ve been able to stop Hook, but will they be able to survive New York’s dynamic duo?

And because Hook is bringing Bronson, Bronson’s bringing the bars! The teams sort out and Hook starts against Parker. They circle, Menard distracts Hook and Parker BOOTS him!

Wardlow & Samoa Joe VS Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling!

The AEW TNT Champion and the ROH World Television Champion have a common enemy in Smart Mark’s stable, and are going to settle this all at once. Are the Premier Athlete & Technical Beast ready for #WARDJOE?

Sterling and his team are already in the ring as AEW returns from commercial. Sterling has a mic to say, “Folks, the last few weeks, a crazed maniac has been trying to powerbomb me! Well I’m gonna tell you this right now: it’s not happening tonight, thanks to my athletes. And we’re gonna make quick work of WaRdJoE~!” But speaking of, here come the championship duo! They storm right to the ring, and the brawl is on! Joe is after Nese, Wardlow is after Woods, the ref rings the bell as Joe dribbles Nese off buckles. Wardlow fires off knees, ROCKS Woods, but Woods ROCKS Wardlow. Wardlow ROCKS Woods back, but Woods ROCKS Wardlow!

Joe keeps on Nese all along the outside as the haymakers continue to fly in the ring. Wardlow gets the edge, but Woods ducks one to waistlock and GERMAN SUPLEX! Woods roars and mocks the conducting of the orchestra. Only to turn around into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! And then another! Sterling is freaking out as Joe keeps Nese down.

Wardlow rolls Woods onto his feet to clothesline him and himself up and out of the ring! Joe puts Nese in the ring and JABS away in the corner!

Fans fire up as Joe whips Nese corner to corner, but Nese elbows him away. Nese goes up to CROSSBODY, but Joe just walks out of the way. Fans love Joe just not caring.

Winners: Wardlow & Samoa Joe, by pinfall

But Woods goes after Joe! He doesn’t care if this match is over or not, he wants to beat up Joe! Nese joins in, they mug Joe, but Wardlow gets in, even with his bad leg. Wardlow DOUBLE LARIATS Nese & Woods down! Fans fire up as the straps come down, and Wardlow has Woods in position! But Sterling gets in, and he SMACKS Wardlow with his own TNT title! But Wardlow doesn’t even budge! He just gets pissed! Sterling is pissed that Wardlow didn’t even stagger! Wardlow steps and Sterling runs away, but into Joe! Sterling knows he’s dead now.

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man notes they’re having an unsanctioned Lights Out Match tonight, but then “Powerhouse” Hobbs says it’s about time Ricky showed up! That’s the Starks that fought Darby Allin & Sting. And yet, that’s the Starks that Hobbs beat in four minutes and 35 seconds. Tonight, there won’t be any change. Starks says that’s funny. Starks has been here, he never left. Hobbs beat Starks in just over four minutes, Starks admits to that. But he can also admit that he is better than a four minute match! That was a one time thing, it won’t ever happen again.

Hobbs needs to understand, that was a career highlight for you! The highlight tonight is Starks doing what he has set out to do from the get-go. Starks will close to Book of Hobbs, and he will make sure to put Hobbs down once and for all. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event!

Lights Out: Ricky Starks VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!

As Justin Roberts explains, the lights will turn off and then turn back on, signifying that AEW will NOT be responsible for what happens next. No time limit, no count outs, no disqualifications, no official record of this match on the win-loss records, and NOTHING holding these two back! When they can do absolutely anything they want to each other, just who will be left standing at the end of Grand Slam?

Starks gets a very cinematic entrance. “There is no fire like passion, and no crime like hatred. There’s uncertainty in your lust. You seek revenge, but your passion fuels you to burn brightly, like an inferno.” Starks, bathed in red light, throws things around the room in that anger. “You’ve done that,” the narrator continues, “just to be able to call yourself, ‘Absolute.’ You are absolute, Ricky Starks.” The bell rings and the haymakers start flying! Fans fire up but Hobbs knees low. Hobbs whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Hobbs! Starks rains down hands, Hobbs pushes him away and bails out, only for Starks to pursue!

Hobbs kicks Starks, whips him at a corner, but Starks slides under the bottom rope! Starks swings around the post to CLOBBER Hobbs! Fans fire up with Starks and Hobbs staggers up. Starks RAMS Hobbs into steel steps! Starks kisses the hand of the nice old lady up front, and then he drags Hobbs up. Starks puts Hobbs in, fans rally up, and Starks grins. Starks brings Hobbs up, but Hobbs Alabama Lifts for a REVERSE NECKBREAKER! Hobbs knows Starks’ neck is his weak spot! Hobbs then gets a table and puts it in the ring! Starks staggers to ropes while Hobbs picks the table up, to SLAM it on Ricky’s back! That’s different!

Jericho says Hobbs is also his Sports Entertainer of the Week, and Hobbs fetches chairs from under the ring. Fans rally for Starks while he stirs and Rampage goes picture in picture. Hobbs gets a chair and he JAMS Starks in the head with it! Hobbs grins as he goes looking for more things under the ring, and he brings out… Is that a silver chain? Hobbs storms up to Starks, kicks him down, and he punches Starks with the chain around his hand! Starks sputters and crawls away but Hobbs says he’s gonna hurt Starks! Hobbs sets up the table in a corner now, then fetches Starks. Hobbs brings the straps down before he stands on Starks’ head.

The ref can only check on Starks but Starks refuses to give up. Hobbs goes out to take Justin Roberts’s belt?! Hobbs brings that belt over to LASH Starks! Hobbs says he’s literally gonna whip Starks’ ass, and he LASHES Starks again! Starks hits Hobbs back and takes the belt to LASH Hobbs! And again! And again! Starks keeps after Hobbs as they get back in the ring, but Hobbs pops Starks up for a SPINEBUSTER! But Hobbs doesn’t cover? Well, Hobbs did say he wants to hurt Starks, so he doesn’t want this to end here. Hobbs wedges a chair into a corner, then he goes back for Starks. Hobbs JAMS Starks with another chair! And then SMACKS him with it!

Rampage Grand Slam returns to picture in picture one last time, and Hobbs wedges that other chair into another corner. Starks crawls but Hobbs drags him up. Hobbs scoops Starks, aims for a corner, and he RAMS Starks into the chair!! Hobbs grins as he goes corner to corner, but Starks slips off and RAMS Hobbs into the chair! Starks reels Hobbs in, uses the ropes, TORNADO DDT!! Starks hurries to cover, TWO!! Hobbs survives and Starks is frustrated. Hobbs flounders, Starks gets a chair, but Hobbs LOW BLOWS Starks first! Fans boo as Starks falls over, but Hobbs takes that chair for his own.

Hobbs sits the chair up, and then sits another chair up so that they face each other. Hobbs drags Starks up and brings him over, SKY- NO! Starks slips off and LOW BLOWS Hobbs in return! Starks pushes Hobbs down, and he flips the chairs around to be back to back! Starks drags Hobbs up, poses, but Hobbs resists the lift! Hobbs back drops Starks onto the chairs!! Fans lose their minds as Starks writhes! Hobbs grabs one of the chairs, sets it down, then does the same with all the other chairs. Hobbs scoops Starks for an OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE onto the chairs!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Starks survives and shocks Hobbs!

Starks crawls to the ramp but Hobbs pursues. Starks kicks him low, throws body shots, but Hobbs DECKS Starks! Hobbs stalks Starks some more, but Starks ROCKS Hobbs with a haymaker! Hobbs shrugs it off to DECK Starks again. Hobbs tells the ref to shut up about the ring. Hobbs drags Starks up, but Starks dodges to ROCK Hobbs! And again! Starks staggers but he runs in, only for Hobbs to send the Spear into the tunnel’s frame! Wait, speaking of that frame, Hobbs RIPS an LED light bar off it! Hobbs has it like a steel pipe as he stalks Starks as Starks crawls back down the ramp. Hobbs tells Starks to get his ass up!

They both return to the ring, Hobbs takes aim, but Starks avoids the swing! Starks SPEARS Hobbs through the table!! Fans are thunderous and Starks has a wild look in his eyes! Starks stands up, he keeps Hobbs from picking up the light bar and snatches it away. He CRACKS Hobbs with it! Starks reels Hobbs in, underhooks the arms, lifts Hobbs up, ROSHAMBEAU!!! Cover, Starks wins!!!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

That was an ABSOLUTE battle! An absolute clinic in violence, too! Will Starks be able to finally leave his past behind him and head for a brighter future?

My Thoughts:

What an awesome Rampage! It does help that this was Grand Slam week and they had to make everything on here matter. Well, they almost made everything matter. Jade VS Diamante, for actually building it up in a consistent manner, was really short. And as if Jade wasn’t already Brock Lesnar-ing the women’s division, she uses an F5 to throw Diamante onto the apron. Trina turning on Diamante in the end was also messed up, but whatever. Hook & Bronson VS Menard & Parker was really fun stuff, and Bronson definitely has that pro-wrestler potential. He’s great on the mic, obviously, and he’s one sturdy, stocky guy. Naturally Hook & Bronson win here, who knows what’s next.

Great opener of the entire night from the House of Black VS Darby & Sting. Loved the surprise attack from Darby & Sting, loved the use of the whole ringside area, and what a great surprise that Muta showed up. Didn’t like Julia Hart not going through a table, she overdid the jump. Maybe they should’ve had two tables there, too, like when Sting took his insane bump. But in the end, the Faces winning made sense if it means this feud is ending. As for Buddy & Brody, while they’re both bigger names than Dark and Elevation, I feel like they need to spend time there to buff up their tag team record and get into contention so we can see them feud with the likes of FTR and The Acclaimed.

Very fun but obviously one-sided match from #WardJoe VS Sterling’s stable. Of course Wardlow & Joe won, but I was a little worried that Wardlow taking that tumble and tweaking his knee was part of why this was less a tag match and more just two singles matches happening at the same time. I also think that with Joe having beat Woods and Wardlow having beat Nese, they’ll trade and we’ll get Wardlow beating Woods in a title match while Joe beats Nese in another. We got amazing stuff out of Fenix VS JB, and what a great win for JB. But of course Christian Cage & Luchasaurus ruin the moment and beat JB up. JB is going to continue showing his toughness, and he’ll definitely get his match with Luchasaurus now.

Good promo from the JAS celebrating Jericho’s win and setting up an even bigger celebration for Wednesday. I have a feeling Garcia does want to bring up Jericho cheating again, as it relates to Garcia’s own identity crisis of pro-wrestler VS sports entertainer. And I also think the celebration segment will give Bryan Danielson an opening to challenge Jericho to their tiebreaker, with the ROH World Championship on the line. Hell, Kingston might even show up after how things went against Sammy. Great match, and Kingston wins, only to cost himself because he didn’t show mercy, and it’d be natural to set a rematch for like the Dynamite Anniversary or something.

AEW does a great job with Battle Royals, and they really upped things here. The massive brawl, the seemingly endless number of entries, and all the stories that can now stem from what we saw. #HardyParty reuniting was a great one, and they can now take on LFI/AFO and get into the trios division. For a moment, I thought Rush or some other Heel was going to win, but in the end, Hangman wins to keep him in the world title scene. I suppose that’s fine, but I don’t see Moxley losing the title in Cincinnati only a month after getting the belt back. So then why waste Hangman on that? Unless that’s exactly when MJF will strike, to best stick it to Moxley!

My Score: 8.8/10
