Kassius Ohno VS Ligero!

The Wrestling Genius called out the Luchador of Leeds as another fraud of British wrestling. Will Ligero make Ohno see the light? Or will Ohno get a KO in NYC?

The bell rings and Ligero waits for Ohno as he stays in the corner. Ohno comes out and fans rally up as he ties up with Ligero. Ligero headlocks but Ohno powers out easy. Ohno taunts Ligero, then pie faces him. Ligero doesn’t back down so Ohno does it again. They tie up and Ohno puts Ligero in a corner. Ligero climbs up and uses the top rope to leap, but Ohno denies the arm drag to put Ligero in the corner. Ligero dodges Ohno and waistlocks then speeds up to sunset flip. Ohno stays standing and pries Ligero off to whip him to a corner. Ligero goes up and under then back in, but is put on the apron. He slingshots in, but into a BOOT! Ohno covers, ONE!

Ohno grins as he stalks Ligero and fans rally up. He drags Ligero up to club him hard on the back. Ohno brings Ligero up for a CHOP! Ligero drops to a knee and Ohno toys with him. Ohno stalks Ligero then brings him up for a back suplex. Ligero escapes and boots Ohno to then rally with kicks. Ligero runs and tilt-o-whirls to throw Ohno out! Fans fire up with Ligero as he gets on the apron. Ligero leaps and cannonballs, but also gets steel steps to the face! Ohno may have just managed to direct Ligero that way! Ohno drags Ligero’s dead weight up and into the ring at 5. He taunts Ligero having an “accident” as he stomps Ligero out. Ohno drops elbows then covers, TWO! Ohno drags Ligero up and suplexes for a big slam! Cover, TWO! Ligero lives but Ohno keeps his cool.

Ohno looms over Ligero and brings him around for a standing chinlock. Ligero endures as Ohno drags him around. Ohno drops back to bend Ligero over his knees! Fans rally for Ligero as he endures. Ligero pries Ohno’s hands apart! But Ohno brings them back to ear clap Ligero! Ohno drops knees right to Ligero’s face! Cover, TWO! Fans cheer as Ligero stays in this match. Ohno kicks Ligero while he’s down but Ligero keeps pushing back. Ohno clubs Ligero then stands on his hand! Then Ohno grabs the other arm, to stomp Ligero right in the head! Ohno mocks Ligero as he stands him up to boot him down. Ohno brings Ligero up again to boot him back down, and dares him to get up. Ligero does slowly stand, and blocks the boot! Ohno powers Ligero down but Ligero dodges the stomps and senton!

Fans rally while Ohno glares. Ligero dodges and kicks away on Ohno’s leg! Ligero brings Ohno to his knees to knee him in the face! And again! Ligero gives Ohno a third boot, but he’s not done there! Ligero goes to the apron and climbs to springboard splash! Cover, TWO! Ohno survives and gets to a corner while Ligero sits up. Ligero whips Ohno but Ohno holds the ropes. Ligero SLAPS Ohno then whips but Ohno reverses. Ohno misses as Ligero ducks, Ligero grabs Ohno, but Sliced Bread is denied. Ohno prepares a gut wrench but Ligero victory roll counters, TWO! Ligero baits Ohno in and leaps up, DESTROYER! Cover, TWO!! Ohno survives again and slumps out of the ring.

Fans fire up as Ligero builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit takes Ohno down! Ligero gets Ohno up but Ohno shoves him away. Ohno runs into an elbow and Ligero gives Ohno Sliced Bread to the floor! But the ring count is at 7! Ohno and Ligero crawl for the ring, and both get in at 9! Ligero springboards in but the stunner is blocked. Ohno goes after the mask! Ligero is busy defending his face, Ohno hits the Dream Crusher elbow! Cover, Ohno wins!

Winner: Kassius Ohno, by pinfall

The Knockout Artist redeems himself after losing to The Kiwi Buzzsaw but through cheating the Luchador of Leeds. Will Ohno move on to prove he’s the proper British style wrestler?

 

Exclusive interview with Jordan Devlin.

The Irish Ace will get what he wants: a match with the NEW WWE United Kingdom Champion, Walter. “What are my feelings on my big match with Walter next week in New York?” He’d normally be happy and talk a big game, but he won’t. Because to protect the rematch of the century of Dunne VS Walter II, this is a non-title match. Devlin isn’t a fool, he sees what everyone wants. Everyone wants Dunne VS Walter to tear the house down again, but Devlin doesn’t. Devlin doesn’t care about what fans want. He doesn’t care about what Dunne and Walter want. Devlin vows to beat and hurt Walter next week so that he will be the undeniable challenger to that WWE UK Championship. He will show us all why you never bet against the Ace.

 

The Hunt returns next week!

The Wild Boar and the Primate will return, but who will be their next prey?

 

Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner took a tour of Wrestlemania Axxess.

To them, this was all just a circus. And what is this? Champ Yourself? Pretend to be champions with pretend belts? The European Alliances say that’s what exactly the problem is. Playing pretend with a fake belt and a fake ring, it’s disgusting. Look at this. The fake entrance ramp, too. Fans get to do what the wrestlers work so hard to earn? No one understands, but that is the difference between you and them. Because to them, this means so much more than anyone could ever imagine. To them, the ring is sacred.

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Lightning from Down Under is in New York with her NXT UK Women’s Championship as she heads to the ring. “Welcome to NXT UK in New York City!” Toni feels so awesome representing this brand on the most important weekend of the year, Wrestlemania! And she successfully defended her title a few weeks ago in a close match. But that got her thinking. NXT UK is home to some of the most talented women in the world. She may not like her, but she’s had killer matches with Rhea Ripley. There’s Xia Brookside, Nina Samuels and even Piper Niven! But that said, this is Toni Storm, and she will be champion “for a long, long time.” The Mae Young Classic 2 winner is the second NXT UK Women’s Champion, but will she really be champion for much longer?

But as Toni makes her leave, Kay Lee Ray makes her entrance! The other new addition to the roster wants Toni to remember she’s here. What will KLR do to make her mark in NYC?

Kay Lee Ray VS Xia Li!

It’s another crossover of NXT UK and USA as the Killer Lass takes on the spicy martial artist! Who makes the biggest impact across both Women’s Divisions at Wrestlemania Axxess?

The bell rings on this first-ever encounter. Xia and KLR tie up and KLR gets a wristlock. KLR gives a quick shoulder breaker, then wrenches again. Xia slips through to wrench back, but KLR spins to hammerlock. Xia reaches back to headlock, then takedown. KLR headscissors back but Xia pops out, and fans cheer this early exchange. KLR calls for a test of strength, but toys with Xia by switching hands. And then she shows her height advantage. Xia jumps up to get it though! She has the knuckle locks but KLR breaks free to wrench and yank Xia around. Xia rolls and handsprings to break free, but KLR stays away from those martial arts kicks! KLR uses the corner for defense, and Xia backs off, but KLR gets a cheap shot in.

KLR throws forearms and then rams shoulders into Xia in the corner. She lets up at the ref’s count then whips corner to corner. Xia goes up and over and then comes back with a dropkick! Cover, TWO! Xia goes after KLR on the ropes but KLR holds ropes. KLR then wrenches to SUPERKICK and throw Xia into a post! KLR stomps a mudhole into Xia then drags her up. She forearms Xia hard but backs off as Xia gasps for air. Fans rally as KLR hammerlocks Xia to throw her back into buckles! KLR drags Xia up to snapmare to a seated stretch. Xia endures as KLR bends her back and digs knuckles into ribs. Fans rally harder and Xia pops out. Xia powers up and arm-drags KLR hard. KLR comes back for another hammerlock but Xia spins it around to throw KLR into buckles.

KLR comes back but gets jabs and back hands! Xia gives KLR knees to the head then a leaping snapmare! Fans fire up as Xia kicks KLR in the back! Xia dares KLR to get up, swing and a miss but the heel kick gets her! Cover, TWO! KLR lives and Xia can’t believe it! Xia heads to a corner and hops up, then leaps, only for KLR to get under. KLR CHOPS and SUPERKICKS then back hooks to hit Widow’s Peak! Cover, KLR wins!

Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall

And that’s 1-2-3 for KLR in NYC! The NXT UK Women’s Champion may have overlooked her before, but will she have to acknowledge KLR now?

 

NXT UK Media found Piper Niven at Wrestlemania Axxess.

The Scottish Viper was finishing up a meet ‘n’ greet as they noted her run-ins with Rhea Ripley. Rhea is definitely a phenomenal athlete, but Piper knows Rhea’s a bully. Piper doesn’t like bullies. Let’s see how Rhea likes it when she finds someone she can’t just push around. When and where will Piper and Rhea finally settle things in the ring?

 

Something’s happening backstage!

The Grizzled Young Veterans are throwing around the ring gear and luggage of Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan! Zack Gibson and James Drake are furious! Kenny & Amir haven’t done a thing to deserve their spots on this roster. GYV are locker room leaders. They are forcing the Lucky Yin and Bhangra Bad Boy to change in the halls! Will Gibson & Drake pay for being locker room bullies?

 

Moustache Mountain VS Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews!

Tyler Bate & Trent Seven are good friends with the Modfather and the High-Fiving, Stage-Diving Welsh Rockstar, but that doesn’t mean friends can’t have a friendly match. Will it be the Big Strong Boys or the Welsh Air Force take the win in New York?

The teams sort out and we start with Bate and #Mandrews with the bell. Andrews and Bate hear the fans sing as they circle. Bate and Andrews shake hands to show this is respectful. They tie up and Bate wrenches Andrews around to a wristlock. Andrews rolls and reverses the wrench to a standing armlock. Andrews brings Bate down to the mat but Bate powers his way up. Bate stands but Andrews wrenches again. Bate works his way out of the hammerlock and reverses back. Headlock takeover meets headscissors and the two stand off. Fans cheer as they approach again. Bate reels Andrews in to a keylock and down to the mat but Andrews denies the cover. Andrews knips up and uses ropes to flip through to an arm-drag. Bate blocks the next arm-drag but Andrews goes around to the other side!

Andrews arm-drags Bate to an armlock and fans applaud. Bate works his way back up but Andrews brings him to the corner. FMW tags in and drops stomps on the arm. FMW wrenches Bate but Bate rolls and then back and then handsprings to dropkick! Bate grabs FMW and tags in Seven! Seven takes the hand-off and then scoops but FMW escapes. They collide shoulders but Seven doesn’t budge. FMW tries again but still can’t get Seven off his feet. FMW tries again only for Seven to use the momentum to rebound and run FMW over! Seven runs but things speed up, but Seven blocks the hip toss. FMW hits Seven in the gut then back flips to a drop toehold! Fans cheer as FMW gets a facelock. Seven powers up as fans rally but Andrews tags in.

Andrews gets the hand-off and wrenches Seven. Seven breaks free to CHOP away on Andrews! Andrews wings, but falls for the feint and DDT! Seven covers, TWO! Seven smothers Andrews and tags in Bate. Bate headbutts Andrews’ ribs then snapmares him for a neck crank! Cover, TWO! Bate keeps Andrews from FMW with an arm wrench. Tag to Seven and Moustache Mountain coordinate for Wasteland to knee-board senton! Cover, TWO! Seven drags Andrews up for a scoop slam then drops a leg! Cover, TWO! Andrews crawls but Seven brings him back down. Fans rally as Seven pulls Andrews into a seated stretch. Seven shifts to a modified cobra clutch but Andrews works his way up. Fans rally and Andrews reaches for FMW. Andrews elbows Seven but Seven wrings him out. Andrews dodges and hot tags FMW!

The Modfather gives Seven a knee trigger! Then triangle dropkicks Bate down! FMW goes back to Seven for the quebrada! Cover, TWO! FMW keeps going as he brings Seven up. He underhooks but Seven slips out, only to fall for the bait. FMW headbutts then underhooks again, but Seven back drops out. Hot tags to Bate and Andrews! Bate throws FMW down then blocks and kenes Andrews. Bate hops up to flying European Uppercut! Fans fire up as Bate goes corner to corner for another EuroUpper. He dodges FMW and then gets them both with a EuroUpper! Bate brings FMW up for the airplane spin! Andrews comes over but Bate trips him up for a swing! The Big Strong Boy shows off his strength, then dumps FMW on Andrews. Bate brings FMW up, double underhook is countered with a headscissors!

Bate ends up on the outside, FMW DIVES but is CAUGHT! And taken for another spin! Bate tosses FMW at the apron for snake eyes! Bate returns to Andrews and catches him for an exploder! Knip up to standing Shooting Star! Cover, TWO! Andrews lives but Bate sees Seven. Tag to Seven and Moustache Mountain goes after Andrews. But Andrews fires off with CHOPS again and again and again, back and forth! But Bate and Seven kick him back then double whip. Andrews slides under to double PELE! Bate and Seven both end up outside and tag to FMW. The Welshmen both FLY and take down the Big Strong Boys!

FMW puts Seven in then uses the Moustache Mountain corner to tag! The ref waves that off, but FMW still tilt-o-whirl DDT’s Seven down. They tag in their proper corner, and FMW gives Andrews the boost for the standing 450! Cover, TWO! Andrews grows frustrated but keeps on Seven as fans rally. Andrews brings Seven up but Seven CHOPS! And CHOPS! And again and again! FMW comes in but he gets a CHOP! FMW falls for the feint now, and Seven passes him to Andrews. Seven CHOPS Andrews and makes him DDT FMW! Hot tag to Bate! Moustache Mountain has Andrews, Rebound Lariat Dragon Suplex! Cover, but FMW SWANTONS it apart! Fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” as all four men regroup.

Bate grabs Andrews and drags him around for a EuroUpper and some right hands. Andrews forearms and chops back, then picks up speed as he hits from all sides! Bate shoves, Bop up, BANG hits! FMW tags in and Andrews reverses the whip. Bate rebounds but misses the lariat, gets a knee-trigger reverse-rana!! Cover, but Seven breaks it! FMW drags Bate over and underhooks, but Bate spins out. FMW baits but BANG hits! Tag to Seven, and Seven back hands FMW into a BIG dragon suplex! Tag back to Bate, and MOustache Mountain combine for the flying knee burning hammer! Cover and Seven intercepts Andrews! Moustache Mountain wins!!

Winners: Moustache Mountain, by pinfall

Bate & Seven take the win after a grueling match! Will Moustache Mountain use this to climb back up towards the NXT UK Tag Team Championships?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Another great episode of NXT UK in New York. We open with a nice bit of action of Ohno VS Ligero. A good match and it was best for Ohno to win so that his story doesn’t fall flat. Of course, he probably should’ve won against Travis Banks last time for the same reason. A Heel’s mission of establishing their own philosophy only works if it doesn’t fail until the very end. Or if it fails over and over. Either way, Ohno should’ve been on a different streak than 50-50 booking. Toni Storm had a good promo and it was timely for Kay Lee Ray to show up to bring up that she’s around. KLR VS Li was good, and naturally the NXT UK superstar wins. KLR very may well be Toni’s next challenger given Rhea VS Piper is happening and there aren’t other women ready to challenge Toni.

Devlin’s interview for his coming match with Walter was well done. It’s good story to have him be upset he’s not getting a title shot first, but who knows? Maybe he does well enough that Johnny Saint will have to grant him a shot. Maybe a triple threat for the title? Or Devlin takes on the winner of Walter VS Dunne for a rematch either way. GYV had a decent promo with throwing around Kenny’s and Amir’s gear. It still seems like their tag title match will happen after all, but I’d think GYV still wins. Moustache Mountain VS Andrews & Webster was incredible, worthy of a tag title match in itself. Bate & Seven win and should be the proper second tag team champions for NXT UK to parallel Dunne’s own reign as the second-ever WWE UK Champion.

My Score: 8.3/10

AEW World Tag Team Championships Triple Threat: The Acclaimed VS Private Party VS The Butcher & The Blade!

The Open Challenge was answered in a big, BIG way! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens aren’t just facing one team, but TWO teams, both under the Andrade Family Office. Will Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy and the menacing mercenaries make El Idolo proud? Or will it be a Mic Drop from the #ForeverChampions?

Justin Roberts makes the introductions before The Acclaimed make their entrance. “Yo! Listen! Listen! Yo! Yo! Everybody loves the new champions. Even Adam Lavine was in our DMs! Philly knows Private Party sucks! Y’all need to hop off Matt Hardy’s nuts. Tonight, yo, our hands go up. Y’all’re losers, and that’s why your band broke up. Y’know Acclaimed been winning. We run your who team into the ground like Ben Simmons!” Bowens takes over to say, “PHILADELPHIAAAA~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!” And they do! But will Platinum Max & the Five Tool Player stay golden with the odds stacked against them?

In this kind of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are active at any time, so Bowens steps up against Kassidy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” for The Acclaimed. Matt Hardy is watching backstage, quietly cheering on Private Party. Bowens and Kassidy circle, tie up, and Bowens wrenches an arm. Kassidy rolls, kips up, wrenches back, and has a wristlock. Bowens slips through, wrenches back to a hammerlock, spin and snapmare to a ghost pin, TWO! Kassidy gets a backslide, TWO! Bowens runs in but Kassidy sweeps the legs to a cover, ONE! Bowens returns the favor, ONE as Kassidy goes Matrix! But Bowens schoolboys, TWO!

Things speed up, Kassidy RANAS Bowens, and fans are torn while Kassidy talks trash. But Butcher & Blade tell Kassidy to focus and he rushes Bowens, only for Bowens to ELBOW, JAB, CHOP and SUPERK- NO, Kassidy goes Matrix again! Bowens says it was that close. Kassidy offers a handshake, Bowens shakes hands to show respect, but then Butcher & Blade reach out for a tag. Kassidy says no way, homies. He swings on Bowens but Bowens gets around and puts him in the Acclaimed corner! Caster tags in, Bowens feeds Kassidy to a takedown. Caster then shifts to get a leg, he stomps it, and he makes scissor fingers.

Caster drags Kassidy up, ducks his haymaker to CHOP and DROPKICK! Fans fire up and Caster SCISSORS Billy! Caster brings Kassidy up to a headlock but Kassidy powers out. Bowens sneaks a tag, Caster sunsets and Bowens runs in, NECKBREAKER BACKBREAKER COMBO! Fans fire up, Quen runs in but Caster tackles him. Bowens goes up top and Caster drags Quen over. Bowens says it’s scissor time! SCISSOR LEG DROP! Fans fire up while Private Party regroups. But then Butcher & Blade attack! The ref reprimands but they don’t care, they’ve had it with the champs! Blade stomps Bowens, Butcher stomps Cater, then they drag Kassidy over to their corner.

Blade tags in, he drags Kassidy up but Kassidy fires off hands! Blade knees low, he whips Kassidy to the ropes but Quen is there for some SILLY STRING- NO, Blade SHOVES Kassidy down to the floor! And Butcher BLASTS Quen for good measure! But Bowens fires off on them both! Haymakers and CHOPS back and forth, but he runs into a DOUBLE HEADBUTT! Butcher DECKS Caster while fans boo and Billy protests. The mercs mug Bowens while AEW goes picture in picture.

Blade digs his boot in, tags Butcher, and Butcher digs a knee in. The ref counts, Butcher lets off, but he drags Bowens up to CHOP! Bowens staggers away but Butcher stays on him. Cover, TWO! Butcher knees Bowens in the back, tags Blade, but Bowens fights back again. Blade CLAWS Bowens’ eyes! The ref reprimands but Blade whips Bowens to ropes to LARIAT! Blade mocks the scissor fingers, and he SLAMS Bowens’ arm down. Blade taunts Caster then goes back to Bowens. Bowens kicks from below! And fires off haymakers! Blade rakes Bowens’ eyes again! Blade drags Bowens up, reels him in, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Blade is annoyed but he drags Bowens up again. Rampage returns to single picture as fans rally. Bowens endures a chinlock but he fights his way up. Bowens throws body shots, runs, but Blade hits a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Blade drags Bowens up, scoops him, and he carries him over to tag Butcher. The mercs combine for a LEG DROP SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Bowens is still in this and Hardy tries to will Private Party back into this match. Butcher bumps Bowens off buckles, tags Blade, and Blade brings Bowens around. Bowens throws more body shots and forearms, but Blade ROCKS Bowens!

Blade runs, but Bowens ELBOWS, JABS, CHOPS, and SUPERKICKS! The Five Tool Combo finishes and Bowens crawls for his corner! But Butcher CLOBBERS Caster first! Bowens dodges Butcher, BOOTS him away, but Caster is down! Bowens ELBOWS Butcher, runs in, but into a back drop! So Quen tags in! Quen GAMANGIRIS Butcher, springboards and CROSSBODIES Blade! Butcher runs in, Quen ducks to go up and up and QUEBRADA! Direct hit on Butcher! Blade pops Quen up but Quen DROPKICKS! Quen kips up and tags Kassidy! Private Party double whips Blade to a corner, Kassidy hurries to triangle jump STUNNER Butcher!

Quen sets up, Kassidy runs in, PARTY IN MOTION! Quen FLIES onto Butcher! Kassidy then feeds Blade to Quen and Kassidy goes up top! HUMAN HIGHLIGHT REEL!! Cover, Caster breaks it! Fans cheer as The Acclaimed are still in this but Hardy is stressed. Quen rushes Caster but Caster back drops him up and out! But Butcher CLOBBERS Caster! Kassidy runs in, but into a fireman’s carry, TOSS to a GUTBUSTER! And then a gut wrench POWERBOMB! Cover, Bowens breaks it! Butcher tosses Bowens out now and the mercs drag Kassidy up. They double whip, Kassidy slips around and shoves them into each other!

Butcher falls out, Kassidy sends Blades out then takes aim. Bowens sneaks a tag as Kassidy springboards to PLANCHA! Down go the mercs! Caster climbs up now, to SUPER CROSSBODY everyone!! Fans are thunderous as Caster puts Blade in! Bowens fires up, THE ARRIVAL! The MIC DROP!! Cover, The Acclaimed win!!

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

A massive first defense for Caster & Bowens, and they come away the champions! And they SCISSOR~! Will this victory only make the celebration on National Scissors Day that much bigger?

 

Backstage interview with The Firm.

Lexi Nair is trying to get a word with Stokely Hathaway and the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten. They are talking among themselves but she speaks up. Austin & Colten had some “harsh words” for FTR last week. Oh, you mean Mr. Mustache and Mullet Man? Well, since the Gunn Sons get TV time and they don’t, Colten & Austin will gladly things. Austin wants to know how FTR holds the “Ring of Horror” tag titles- No, the Ring of Honor tag titles. Oh, right. Well, they also have the “Triple A Batteries” titles. No, no, Triple A. And the IWGP R2D2 titles. It’s just IWGP. But speaking of those, FTR is currently in London to defend those.

“Well, regardless,” Colten says, “they don’t have what we want, and that’s the AEW titles.” Austin says that’s right. Also, FTR has been holding on to their #1 contenders status for like eight years now and have yet to make moves! So the Gunns will make the move everyone else in AEW does, and that’s leap frog FTR to go right for the champs! Top Gunns, out! Will Austin & Colten’s need for speed get them to the top? Or will they crash ‘n’ burn against The Acclaimed?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

Lexi Nair says that was an incredible win last week at Rampage: Grand Slam, where even hip hop legend, Trina, anointed Jade as the NEW “Baddest B*tch.” Jade knows that, “Lindsey.” But that’s besides the point. “All you whack ass, fat ass-” Leila Grey says Jade should chill out, but Jade says she’s gonna say what she wants! She’s so bored because AEW hasn’t brought her any kind of competition. But then Nyla Rose, Marina Shafir & Vickie Guerrero walk in. Vickie reminds Jade that the last time she faced Nyla, Jade won but didn’t pin her. That doesn’t matter! Jade beat Nyla! And Marina, too! Vickie has the Problem Solver stand down and Nyla speaks up.

“What’s the matter, Jade? I’m not one of your precious little numbers? Scared of a little one-on-one?” Oh, one on one? Okay, Jade will give Nyla what she wants, but on Jade’s time. Now get outta her face! Vickie takes off her scarf and throws it at Leila, telling her to cover herself up. The Vicious Vixens head out, and the Baddies wonder what’s wrong with how Leila’s dressed. Will the Native Beast be the one that finally ends the undefeated streak?

 

Lee Moriarty w/ The Firm VS Fuego Del Sol!

Someone else with title aspirations is #TAIGASTYLE, who ditched Matt Sydal to join Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s faction on retainer. Moriarty wants the ROH Pure Championship around Daniel Garcia’s waist, but will he stomp out the Fire of the Sun first?

The bell rings and fans rally up. The two tie up, Moriarty headlocks and grinds then shifts to a cravat. Fuego endures but Moriarty pushes him down. Fuego keeps himself up, but Moriarty sweeps the arms to then roll Fuego into a snapmare cradle, TWO! Fuego gets up into a CHOP, headbutt and EuroUpper! Moriarty grins, he wrenches Fuego and whips, but Fuego reverses to mule kick! Fuego runs, handsprings over Moriarty’s dropdown, but Moriarty DROPKICKS Fuego down! Moriarty grins again while fans boo. Moriarty stomps Fuego at the ropes again and again until the ref counts. Moriarty lets off, to then stomp away again!

The ref counts, Moriarty lets off and Fuego goes to a corner. Moriarty runs in in to SHINING WIZARD! Moriarty reels Fuego into an arm-trap SAIDO SUPLEX! Moriarty mockingly applauds at the fans, then he looms over Fuego. Fans rally, Moriarty wrenches and hooks Fuego up, for a FACEBUSTER! Stokely likes what he sees as Moriarty clamps on the BORDER CITY STRETCH! Fuego taps, Moriarty wins!

Winner: Lee Moriarty, by submission

The fans boo as Moriarty holds on past the bell, and Moriarty lets go when Fuego stops tapping! Moriarty says this is HIS time, but Fuego’s not done suffering! Morrissey clamps on a claw and deadlifts Fuego by his head! And then holds him up with one arm! For a SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!!! Fuego just fell from the sky, will The Firm dominate AEW sooner rather than later?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page & The Dark Order.

Lexi Nair stands with The Cowboy, as well as Evil Uno & Preston Vance. She notes that last week on Rampage, Hangman won the Grand Slam Golden Ticket Battle Royal and is now headed to Cincinnati and an AEW World Championship match with Jon Moxley. Hangman says his match with Mox is just a few weeks away, and this is one Hangman has been looking forward to for a very long time. Uno says that everyone will be in Hangman’s corner for this. But wait, here come Andrade and Jose. Jose points out that if you look back, look what happened when Vance got eliminated. Jose uses his tablet to play the footage on the TV.

Jay Lethal triangle jumps, aiming for Hangman, but Hangman ducks and Vance takes the hit. Jose says it’s Hangman who eliminated Vance! Uno says that’s ridiculous logic. Andrade says he just wants to help Vance. This week is a big opportunity for Vance. What does Vance say to a 1v1? If Andrade wins, Vance gives up his mask. Deal? Vance shakes hands, but then he then pulls Andrade in. Vance has his own condition: If Vance beats Andrade, Andrade leaves AEW for good! High stakes between Number Ten and El Idolo, who wins for the Dynamite Anniversary?

But wait, the Firm walks in now? Stokely says they haven’t been snitching cuz they don’t like snitches, but… Jose says if Stokely wants to speak with El Idolo, he has to go through Jose. Oh, so Jose’s the boss? Ethan Page thought the boss was Andrade. And if he is, then maybe pay a little more attention to them. Be more firm with Private Party. Because Ethan knows there’s some “contract tampering” with their new-old friend, Matt Hardy. Stokely says that’s a bit messy. Andrade asks Jose what that’s about, and Jose does admit Hardy’s sniffing around. Will El Idolo crash the #HardyParty before it begins?

 

Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel VS Willow Nightingale!

These two got into it during the Lumberjack match on Dynamite, and now they’ll settle things here on Rampage! Is Hayter gonna hate on the ever energetic Willow? Or will Willow show everyone how to deal with a Hayter?

The bell rings and Hayter rushes Willow, but Willow dodges and hits a THESZ PRESS! Fast hands, but Hayter returns those! Willow gets back on top to rain down HEADBUTT after HEADBUTT! Fans fire up with Willow, and she waistlocks Hayter. Hayter switches, Willow switches, but Hayter stomps a foot. Hayter elbows Willow, runs and RAMS shoulders, but Willow stays up! Willow shakes her head and Hayter is annoyed. Hayter runs, she RAMS Willow again, but Willow stays up to flex! Fans rally for both Hayter and Willow, Hayter runs again but Willow follows to run her over!

Fans fire up, Willow scoops and SLAMS Hayter, for a SENTON! Willow sits Hayter up to run and BASEMENT CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Fans rally up and Willow drags Hayter up. FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect and Hayter survives. But Willow powers up, runs and CHOPS! Fans “WOO~!” while Hayter goes to another corner. Willow runs in to CHOP again! Britt protests, the ref does count, and Willow whips. Hayter reverses, only for Willow to handspring through! But Hayter BOOTS Willow down! Rebel & Britt are happy now and Hayter HIP TOSSES Willow to a corner. Willow sits up, for the METEORA!

Hayter lets the ref check Willow while fans rally and duel. Rampage goes picture in picture as Britt talks trash on Willow. Willow swipes at her but Hayter drags Willow away. Hayter snap suplexes, covers, ONE! Hayter clamps on a chinlock and she leans on Willow. Willow endures, but Hayter thrashes her around! Hayter wrangles Willow but Willow fights up. Willow throws body shots, but Hayter throws her down by her hair! The ref reprimands but Hayter soaks up the heat. Hayter stomps Willow around, then drags her up to CLUB back down. Willow goes to ropes and Hayter storms over, but into a back elbow.

Hayter CLUBS Willow again and Willow goes to the corner. Hayter mocks the fans rallying up, then she brings Willow around to bump off buckles. And again! Britt likes what she sees but the ref reprimands. Hayter “apologizes” but it’s just a distraction so Britt can pull Willow’s foot against the crossbar! Willow gets free but Hayter storms up again. Hayter pulls Willow’s hair to grind her head into the ropes! The ref reprimands, Hayter lets off and she whips Willow corner to corner hard! Willow bounces off buckles and hits the mat, but Hayter digs her knee into Willow’s face. The ref reprimands, Willow pushes Hayter but Hayter CLUBS her down.

Hayter stands on Willow’s back to use her like a skateboard! Willow shakes Hayter off but then Hayter straddles Willow to CLUB away on her! Hayter drags Willow up to UPPERCUT against ropes. And CHOP! Hayter has control as Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns, and Willow fireman’s carries Hayter! Hayter flails to get free, and she ripcords. Willow ducks the Hate Maker but Hayter elbows Willow away. Hayter then hits an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Willow survives and fans fire up! Rebel and Britt are worried, but Hayter drags Willow up. Hayter CLUBS and ROCKS Willow, then gut wrenches. Willow slips off, shoves and POUNCES!! Hayter ends up flopping out of the ring! Britt is there to check Hayter and then claims that is cheating! But fans fire up with Willow and she brings down the straps! Willow goes out after Hayter and puts her in the ring.

Britt & Rebel are creeping, but Willow’s glare scares them away! Willow gets in the ring but Hayter stomps away on her! Hayter tells the booing fans to shut it, and then she drags Willow up. Hayter EuroUppers, then whips Willow. Willow reverses, fireman’s carries, and hits a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Hayter survives and Britt breathes easy. Willow stays positive and she goes up a corner. Fans fire up, but Hayter has the ref check her so that Britt can anchor Willow! Willow CLUBS Britt away but Hayter waistlocks! HIGH ANGLE GERMAN! Hayter holds on, ripcords, HATE MAKER!! Cover, Hayter wins!

Winner: Jamie Hayter, by pinfall

Hayter flexes but give a big assist to Britt Baker, DMD. With their friendship stronger than ever, will Hayter & Baker take over AEW?

 

Wardlow and Samoa Joe speak.

The AEW TNT Champion says, “Together, the power, and the mayhem, and the chaos is limitless.” The ROH World Television Champion says, “What stands before you is WARDJOE! It is a creed and it is a call, to all that battle, to all who seek to stand before all, that all will fall, and all who think they’re ready for what we will do… will be left wanting.” Will there be no stopping this Two TITAN Power Trip?

 

Ryan Nemeth is in the ring.

The Hollywood Hunk introduces himself, and he wants to set things straight. First off, Rocky Balboa is not real! Secondly, Ben Franklin was nothing but a two-pump chump who moved here to DIE. He will give Philly credit, they do have a long-standing wrestling tradition. What was it again? Extremely Crappy Wrestling? Is that what it was? Wait! Here comes HOOK! We were expecting to see the FTW Champion, and now he has even more of a reason to show up with someone talking crap on ECW. Hook gets in the ring to CLOBBER Nemeth! And then he drags Nemeth up to bump him off buckles, and then SAYANAGI with authority!

Hook then sits Nemeth up to give him CLUBBING crossface forearms! Nemeth is a ragdoll as it is but Hook puts on REDRUM!! Nemeth taps fast but passes out just as quickly! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil just showed everyone you do NOT insult Extreme Championship Wrestling with him around. But wait, as Hook heads up the ramp, The Trustbusters walk out. Ari Daivari has Sonny Kiss and “Jeeves Kay” (AKA VSK) with him. And Jeeves, being the butler, has an invitation for Hook on a silver platter. Jeeves leaves it on the ground for Hook and the Trust Busters leave. Hook snatches up the letter and takes his leave, what is Daivari Dinero planning now?

 

AEW shares footage of Swerve’s visit to Rolling Loud NYC.

As Keith Lee let us know last Wednesday, Swerve had this prior engagement to attend, hence the champs defending against other teams. But despite the good time Swerve had with the hip hop and rap stars of today, he is still furious about that loss at Grand Slam. Will Swerve look to be the rock that smashes National Scissors Day this Wednesday?

 

AEW looks at Jon Moxley VS Hangman Page.

The Blue Eyed Battler says, “I remember this building. I remember Hangman Page.” That is to say, it was last year’s Dynamite Anniversary that these two did battle in the Casino Ladder Match. “They say he’s the future of AEW. Okay. I’m the present. I am the here and now.” The Cowboy says, “So I’ve won the Golden Ticket Battle Royal on Rampage and I am the #1 contender to the AEW World Championship.” Moxley says, “Cowboy Sh*t, right? Yeah, we’ll see.”

Hangman says, “The one thing that I need almost as much as the AEW World Championship, is the people. The people have always been behind me, they light a fire under me. They keep me going.” The cameraman hates to break this to Hangman, but their title match is in Cincy. “Aw, sh*t.” The Cowboy knows he’ll be walking in as the enemy, but will he find away around homefield advantage? Or will this title stay with the Blackpool Combat Club?

 

Mark Henry talks with tonight’s main eventers.

The World’s Strongest Man says to the Dark Order that LFI, La Faccion Ingobernables has been trying to poach Vance from them. How do they feel about that? And what is their course of action tonight? Silver says that honestly, LFI’s little man crush on Ten is starting to come off a little bit creepy. Alex Reynolds says that all this stuff, this poaching attempt, will not affect The Dark Order. They’re a real family, and they are one. And because of that, “Mr. Rush,” tonight the Meat Man beats you! Andrade says okay, “piqueno,” calm down. Tonight, LFI shows everyone who they are. They are winners! The Dark Order doesn’t deserve Ten!

Jose points out that Silver can’t ignore that Rush eliminated him from the Battle Royal. Rush tells the “little boy” that all this talk is too much. He’s not here to talk. Rush is here to fight! He’ll see you in the ring, perro! Andrade has Rush tranquilo and Mark Henry says it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Johnny Hungy prove LFI doesn’t win everything? Or will El Toro Blanco bulldoze through Silver to further damage the Dark Order?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Battle of the Belts 4!

After the controversial way The Bastard retained the title against Orange Cassidy, he must now defend the All-Atlantic Championship against Trent Beretta! And speaking of which, we hear from #JustTrent!

“Something my mom always told me growing up, ‘You never hit a man in the head with a hammer.’ Pac, you broke one of Sue’s rules. Orange, he’s not here. He’s hurt right now. And when you hurt one of our friends, we hurt you.” But legally, cuz they’re good boys. So in DC, Bastard, Trent’s gonna hurt you. “Hands in, boys.” Chuck Taylor, Danhausen and Rocky Romero put their hands in with Trent, this one’s for Orange!

 

Rush w/ Jose the Assistant VS John Silver w/ Alex Reynolds!

LFI wants to grow stronger by making the Dark Order weaker, and while Andrade takes on Vance in a Mask VS AEW Career match, this one is straight up about pride and machismo! Will Rush fire the first salvo in this faction warfare? Or will the Meat Man make ground beef outta El Toro Blanco?

The bell rings and fans rally up. Silver and Rush approach, and Philly cheers for “JOHNNY HUNGY!” Rush shoves Silver but Silver headlocks back. Rush throws hands, powers out, and runs Silver over. Rush stomps away, flexes to mock Silver, then runs. Silver stays low then hurdles to drop again. Rush leaps over, they both run, and Silver UPPERCUTS Rush out of the ring! Fans fire up as Silver flexes now. LFI regroups but Silver builds speed, only to roll and copy Tranquilo! LFI is furious now, and Andrade wants Rush to end Silver! Rush gets in, and he DECKS Silver with that right! Silver sits up in a daze, Rush stomps him back down.

Rush pretends to take something from Silver’s head, either a mask or his actual head, and he “punts” it into the crowd! The kick is good, and Rush goes back to Silver. Rush CHOPS Silver in a corner, CHOPS again, then whips corner to corner. Rush clotheslines then whips again to clothesline the other corner. Rush snapmares and basement dropkicks! Fans boo as Rush kips up to mock the #JoinDarkOrder hand. Silver goes to the apron and Reynolds checks on him, but Rush goes out to drag Silver of and whip him into railing! Rush then brings Silver around to throw hands, and he whips Silver into more railing!

Fans boo but Silver CHOPS and ROCKS Rush! Rush CHOPS back! Rush grabs camera cables but the ref reprimands. Rush snarls but he kicks Silver around. Rush puts Silver in the ring, tells everyone to tranquilo, but fans boo. Rush grits his teeth and gets in, he blocks a kick and he DECKS Silver again. Rush then stomps away on Silver in the corner! Rush runs corner to corner, only to stop short and BOOT Silver instead! Fans boo while Rush Tranquilos, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Rush soaks up the heat, drags Silver up, but Silver throws hands. Rush HEADBUTTS Silver, then throws him out! It kinda catches Andrade by surprise, he was watching the crowd. Rush distracts the ref, and Andrade stomps Silver down! Andrade gets away and Rush soaks up more heat. Andrade mocks Silver, dares him to get up, and the ring count climbs. Silver drags himself up but Rush goes out after him, to SMACK him off the timekeeper’s table! And again! Then he CHOPS Silver onto the table! Silver gets up but Rush is after him again, to RAM him into the railing. Rush takes a water bottle to pour it out on his head, he’s getting hot in Philly.

Silver CHOPS back! And ROCKS Rush! Rush pulls Silver’s beard but Silver ROCKS him again. Rush grabs a trash bin and SMASHES Silver with it! Trash goes flying and Silver sputters. Rush stalks Silver back to the ring. The ref reprimands but Rush just shrugs it off. Silver CHOPS! Rush eggs Silver on so Silver CHOPS! Rush SLAPS Silver, then CHOPS him down! Silver sputters again but Rush kicks him around. Rush drags Silver onto the ropes to CHOKE him! The ref reprimands, Rush lets off at 4, and he argues with the ref. Rush drags Silver from ropes to say this is over. Rush goes up the corner, fans rally up, and Rush SUPER SENTONS but FLOPS!

Silver avoids disaster while Rush writhes! A standing count starts, Reynolds rallies the fans up for Silver, and Rampage returns to single picture as the Meat Man rises! Silver runs in to SPLASH Rush! Silver runs but Rush follows to SPLASH! Rush runs corner to corner but Silver follows to SPLASH again! Silver runs, but he suckers Rush in for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Rush gets up, swings, but into another GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up with Silver as he has a wild look in his eye! Silver drags Rush up, whips him to ropes but Rush reverses, only to jump into a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Rush survives and Silver is seething!

The standing count is back while Rush is down but fans rally. Silver stands, snarls, and drags Rush up to suplex. Rush blocks, throws body shots and then pushes Silver. Silver KICKS! And KICKS! And runs, but Rush follows! CHOP! CHOP! SUPERKICK! Silver wobbles into a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Rush can’t believe Silver survives and Andrade looks worried. Andrade tells Rush to finish this but Rush gives toying kicks to Silver. Silver stands and Rush eggs him on. Silver throws a forearm but Rush gives it back! Silver throws another but Rush does, too. Fans rally for Silver as the CHOPS start going back and forth!

Silver CHOPS, Rush DECKS Silver!! Rush snarls as he looms over Silver, then he runs, into a swing! But Rush gets around to backslide. Sliver slips off to KICK, KICK, SUPERKICK and BRAINBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!! Rush survives and Jose gets on the apron! But Reynolds YANKS Jose down! Jose clutches his knee after it bangs off the edge, but now Andrade distracts Silver. The ref reprimands Andrade, Silver tells Andrade to get in the ring then. But Andrade backs down and Rush SUPERMAN FOREARMS Silver down! Silver is sitting in the corner, Rush goes corner to corner, BULL’S HORNS!! Cover, Rush wins!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

LFI gets the better of the Dark Order here tonight, Jose should get some kind of hazard pay for his assist. But then Andrade and Rush start stomping away on Silver! Reynolds gets in but he gets mugged, too! LFI has 3v2 advantage but here come Uno & Vance! They DECK Jose, fire off on Andrade, but Rush goes after Vance! Uno goes after Rush, but now Butcher & Blade rush out! The AFO are here to help their boss! Now the numbers are back in LFI’s favor! But wait! Here comes Hangman! The Cowboy dodges Andrade, BOOTS Blade, dumps Butcher out, then stares Rush down. They fire off hands, a revisit from how the Golden Ticket Battle Royal finished!

Hangman gets the edge with all his haymakers, then he whips. Rush reverses, Hangman goes up and out and loads up, but Rush bails out! Jose hobbles, Hangman figures what the hell. BUCKSHOT for the assistant! Rush is furious, and it is clear he and Hangman have unfinished business. So THIS JUST IN! Tony Khan makes it official for the Dynamite Anniversary episode! Hangman Page VS Rush 1v1! Will the Cowboy wrangle El Toro Blanco before taking on the AEW World Champion?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Rampage to follow up Dynamite and the Grand Slam, as well as to help set up things for the anniversary week. The tag title match was a great opening match, and it did a great job propelling multiple stories. For one, Acclaimed retain, which I figured anyway. They’re surely going to defend against Austin & Colten next, since the Gunns called them out while also calling FTR out. Acclaimed will win there, too, and who knows how it goes with FTR. I don’t wanna say Tony Khan booked himself into a corner, but he’s come close. FTR can’t really lose since they have THREE different tag titles, but The Acclaimed are so popular that it’d be a shame if they lost.

Good segment from The Baddies and the Vixens. Nice character work with Jade; she wants stronger competition yet is hesitant when such a competitor steps up. Nyla VS Jade will be a great match, and with both Marina and Vickie, they’ll be able to cancel out with Kiera and Leila, meaning Nyla will have a fair(er) shot than most. Moriarty gets a quick win off Fuego, but the big thing is Moriarty’s new Heel aggression and Morrissey also getting his in. Assuming Garcia leaves the Jericho Appreciation Society to go full Face, he and Moriarty are gonna have one hell of a feud and match. Also I like that The Firm has to be the one to tell Andrade about Hardy wanting Private Party back, it adds another dimension to that faction’s identity.

Really good promo from #WARDJOE, and I like the idea that they’re going to be some new kind of Two Man Power Trip. They might not go for the ROH tag titles since FTR are technically Wardlow’s pals, but that also adds to the complexities of the AEW tag title picture. Unless Wardlow & Joe each go for other singles titles instead. That could be a way around it, especially with Jericho wanting to bury former ROH World Champions. Jericho VS Joe would be some awesome stuff. Hook whooping Nemeth was also pretty awesome. But I bet with the Trustbusters’ invitation to Hook, the options are A) join the Trustbusters or B) put up the FTW title. And I think we know which one Hook will choose.

Great stuff from Hayter VS Willow, fans love them both and those two can go. Again, there was wasted potential in just doing away with Hayter VS Britt as a feud. But whatever, Britt helps Hayter win, Hayter can have momentum while Britt’s nose heals up, and then we wait and see if they ever/never circle back to a feud. I mean, it could work, with Britt getting jealous of Hayter being just as beloved by the fans and getting opportunities for titles. Glad to see the feud of Death Triangle VS Best Friends continues, as now Trent gets a shot at Pac for Battle of the Belts IV. Not sure Trent wins that one, but it’ll be an awesome match.

And I like what we’re getting out of the LFI VS Dark Order feud. Good promo segment to set up Andrade VS Vance, but I don’t see Andrade leaving AEW so he’ll be taking Vance’s mask. Rush VS Silver was a great main event, but of course Heels win with Heel tactics. Reynolds and Jose should’ve been more careful with that apron trip-up spot, though, that was not a clean drop. Of course we get a brawl, and of course Hangman helps the Dark Order. Hangman VS Rush 1v1 is going to be an awesome match for the anniversary show, and it’ll help Hangman get some momentum going into the title match in Cincy. Great promo from him and Moxley, too, and Hangman was perfectly in character realizing he’s going to be at a disadvantage.

My Score: 8.7/10
