PLAY BY PLAY
Seth Rollins opens Raw!
The Kingslayer is now the BEASTSLAYER! And he is the NEW WWE Universal Champion! Raw takes a quick look back to see how Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar tried to use a scheduling audible to throw Rollins off his game. But of course, Lesnar also tried a pre-match beating unlike anyone’s seen before, too! But Rollins endured, took advantage of the ref going down, and then used multiple Curb Stomps! And in the end, Rollins finally burned Suplex City down!
But in the present, Rollins stands before the New York crowd as they chant “You Deserve It!” He corrects them by saying “WE Deserve It!” Rollins waited a long, long time to be in the ring with that title. All it took was climbing the mountain and beating the most dominant champion in WWE history. Fans say “Thank You, Rollins!” for doing that. Rollins thanks them back and says he actually feels terrible. He still got run over by a truck, and took suplex after suplex to F5. But Rollins always got back up. Rollins took everything Lesnar had to give, and he got back up! Rollins even took a “questionable” tactic to gain an advantage, but truth be told, Rollins didn’t do anything to Lesnar that he wouldn’t have done to Rollins.
Fans chant “Full Time Champ!” knowing Rollins will be here more, but Rollins has some news. Rollins heard Lesnar and Heyman were taking that flight to Vegas for “meetings”. As far as Rollins is concerned, but they can stay in Vegas! Lesnar is no longer the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion, Rollins is! And to do one better, he will be the reigning, defending, fighting, undisputed Universal Champion who everyone in the world can be proud of! Awwwww~ Brooklyn~! Clap for the NEW WWE World Champion, and feel~ the power~! Because yes, The New Day and Kofi Kingston are here! And Kofimania is running wild with the world title around his waist! Kofi and the New Day join Rollins in the ring for a meeting of champions!
“Now Seth, I can see the look on your face right now.” This is confusing, because it’s Monday, not Tuesday. But it is yo bois, The New~ Day~! This isn’t a Superstar Shake-Up, that’s for next week. But for now, the New Day is here early to celebrate! And they couldn’t wait for SmackDown, no. Rollins is WWE Universal Champion by defeating the Beast! Fans boo and Rollins explains they don’t like him. Oh they don’t like Bw-w-w-w-w-w-w-wrock, Lesnar? Not at all. But then Kofi Kingston did the unthinkable! His dream would not be deferred, because he finally won that W, W, E, World, Heavyweight, Championship~! Big E does splits! And after that match, Kofi was hanging out watching that Winner Take All Main Event. That was great for Becky, huh?
So perhaps, how about the NEW Universal Champion and the NEW World Champion have their own WINNER TAKE ALL!? Fans erupt hearing that! Now while The Shield may not be a thing anymore, Kofi will forego The New Day at ringside and these two go 1v1, title for title! Fans already know “This is Awesome!” But Rollins’ answer? “Challenge accepted.” This might be the BIGGEST Post-Mania Raw in history!! Both new champions put up their belts already, who will be the new DOUBLE Champion after tonight!?

Corbin takes a mic and mocks the fans booing him. And he takes their insults as compliments. He heard everyone for weeks whining and complaining about Angle deserving someone more worthy of being a Wrestlemania opponent. But Angle chose Corbin himself, and Corbin showed Angle doesn’t deserve to be in a match with Corbin. Fans also tell Corbin what he should do. “Real classy, New York.” But look! Even with that long list of accomplishments, he’s used to having doubters. Corbin proved he’s better than a gold medalist! And after that victory, Corbin feels like he deserves a medal of his own.
But here comes Kurt Angle! Brooklyn greets Angle with another ovation of “You Suck!” Angle joins Corbin in the ring and fans chant “Thank You, Kurt!” Angle thanks them back then talks to Corbin.

Becky Lynch won the historic Women’s Triple Threat Winner Takes All match, and now she’s here wearing one belt while holding up the other! The first ever simultaneous Raw & SmackDown Women’s Champion goes to the ring as Raw relives the events of that historic match. Ronda tried to submit both opponents at once, but Becky and Charlotte bombed her together. Becky took things to the extreme and Charlotte was the one who went through a table. And just as it seemed like Ronda would win, Becky pulled off the shocking surprise pin to make a dream come true. She put the Man in WrestleMania, and now she stands atop the mountain!
Brooklyn gives Becky a standing ovation and Becky reflects on how she used to work at a bar not too far from here. Fans let her know “You Deserve It!” She thanks them and says “We Did It!” Becky can’t help but smile as fans chant her name. She likes the sound of “Becky Two Belts”, too. But for months now, Ronnie and Ric’s daughter were talking about their resumes being too strong for Becky. Olympics this, title reigns that, UFC this, blah blah blah. But when it was all said and done, the woman with nothing to lose walked out with everything they had! Becky knows she’s not the strongest, fastest, most athletic, but she does have a great theme song like what the fans are singing.
And leaving home at just 15 years old, fighting around the world, Becky became a master of survival. She will always persist and overcome to win in the end. And Becky tells Ronnie that whenever she’s done sulking, The Man will be here to slap her around again. As for Charlotte, The McMahons will probably just hand her tag titles so she can get over losing to Becky again. But Becky knows all the women in the WWE have seen what she’s capable of and what’s possible for them. But she’s the Redhead in Leather ready to slap the heads off ya all! Becky holds up both belts with her head held high, ready to redefine what’s going on in the WWE. But before she leaves, the Sassy Southern Belle appears.
Lacey Evans struts down the ramp, and ends up face to face with Becky. She eyes those belts on Becky’s arms, and uses the Woman’s Right to rock the champ! But Becky stays standing, and even grins. Because she goes right after Lacey! The two fight on the ramp and Lacey’s dress starts tearing. But she doesn’t care as she takes it to Becky! But Becky gives it back, too! They brawl up tot he stage and Becky blocks being thrown into the LED’s! Becky goes for the Disarm-Her! But Lacey slips out behind and goes into a tactical retreat. The Model Soldier has Becky’s attention, but will she regret it?
Backstage interview with Seth Rollins.
People are surprised this Men’s Winner Takes All match is happening. Why is Rollins even doing this? Because Rollins loves a challenge. Rollins lives for the next challenge. Kofi got in the ring and made the challenge like a man, but this is also an attack. SmackDown is their show, Raw is Rollins’. Both men had the biggest wins of their careers but Rollins knows what Kofi is capable of. If Kofi wants to step on Rollins’ show and wants to take his title, then he better be bringing an A+ Game, because that’s what it’ll take. Will Rollins make Kofi regret issuing this challenge? Or will he end up regretting accepting?
Ricochet & Aleister Black VS ???
The Unexpected Duo returns to Raw after coming short of the NXT and SmackDown Tag Team Championships over Wrestlemania Weekend. However, the chase for titles is never over until you’ve won. Will the Dutch Destroyer & King of Flight keep up the hunt in the aftermath?

Now they’ll do things by any means necessary, and it will be Absolutely… GLORIOUS! What will they resort to in order to finally win over Aleister & Ricochet? Or will they simply #FadeToBlack instead?

Elias chills backstage.
But he can’t chill. Not after what John Cena did to him last night. It was his greatest performance, but it was ruined by Cena’s rap. If that’s even what it is! Elias could do that in his sleep. But it’ll be okay because The McMahons will give Elias plenty of time for his one-man opera. Elias will show no mercy to anyone who decides to interrupt. It could be Mr. McMahon himself, there will be hell to pay.
What’s that box?
And what’s that creature poking its head out?! It laughs, but it doesn’t say a word…
Dean Ambrose’s Farewell Match: Dean Ambrose VS Bobby Lashley w/ Lio Rush!
The Lunatic did not sign a new WWE contract, so this could very well be good-bye forever. Will Ambrose make it a happy good-bye against an angry Rocky Mountain Machine?
Raw returns as Lashley & Lio make their way out on stage. Lio has a mic, but he is at a loss for words. He takes a moment, and even Ambrose is waiting for him to say something, but he stays silent.

Sami Zayn is in the building!
He’s back from recovering those two damaged shoulders, but what will he do his first night back?
Mojo Rawley talks to himself again.
Where was he on Wrestlemania night?! Mojo has become even more shattered now that he sports new face paint. He’s found himself, but what will he do to redeem himself?
Sami Zayn heads to the ring!
The Underdog from the Underdog still has fans singing along with his song, even after being gone for so long. He picks up a mic as fans sing “Ole~ ole ole ole~” for him. “Well hello.” Sami knows he was gone for some time so he reintroduces himself. And if you’re gonna miss Wrestlemania, you might as well come back the night after. Sami knows this is hard to believe, but his schedule is wide open. And he could really go for a match right about now. Any takers? Sami waits for someone to accept this open challenge, but it doesn’t seem like- Wait, there’s one! It’s Finn Balor!
The NEW Intercontinental Champion heads to the ring with belt around his waist. Finn joins Sami in the ring and a referee is here, so we have our match! Wait, Finn raises the stakes on Sami!
WWE Intercontinental Championship: Finn Balor VS Sami Zayn!

Raw returns with the bell and Sami circles with Finn. They tie up and go around, Finn gets Sami on ropes. Finn lets up at 3 and circles with Sami again. Fans sing for Sami as he ties up with Finn again. Finn puts Sami in a corner but Sami turns it around. Sami lets up at 4 and gives Finn teasing pats on the chest.

Finn climbs up and aims, Coup de Grace misses! Roll up, TWO!! Finn runs into an exploder into buckles! Sami goes back to the other side, and runs back in, but the Helluva Kick misses! Finn’s up fast, COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Finn wins!
Winner: Finn Balor, by pinfall; still WWE Intercontinental Champion
Sami’s return was great, but it wasn’t extraordinary. Finn wins as the Extraordinary Man, but will he be able to keep the belt without the Demon? As for Sami, he grabs the mic again. Fans cheer, but Sami says, “Y’know, I really thought coming out here tonight would cure what ails me. All it did was reinforce what I’ve realized over the past nine months. It genuinely seems like you missed me.” Fans cheer because they did! Sami stands up as he continues. He can honestly say, from the bottom of his heart, Sami didn’t miss any of them.
The WWE is just a toxic environment. Not because of the McMahons or the other superstars, but because of the audience’s ugliness! Sami will be honest, he lives a happy life. But the fans seem so empty and devoid of meaning that the only joy they get is not from the shows, but out of being critics! Why is that, you morons? Because it’s all the fans have to give themselves self-importance. They judge everyone and everything else but themselves! And why is that? Because they don’t have the balls to! They’re all so delusional, it makes Sami laugh. The fans are the voice of reason? The voices that should be heard? No! Overnight, the WWE Universe has become the evil overlords of the business!
Sami is about one thing: doing what is right. And the right thing isn’t to come back and “save” the WWE, or to “take over” (HHH voice). The right thing to do is to come out here and hold the fans accountable because no one else will. “See you in Hell.” Sami feels he’s doing the right thing telling the WWE Universe off, but is that any way to get ahead?
Backstage interview with Dana Brooke.
Not to interrupt anyone, but she wants to make a declarative statement. Congrats to Becky, the new Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion. And given what Lacey Evans did tonight, there is a line forming. Dana can’t say she’s at the front, but she won’t let herself be the back of it. If there’s an opportunity, Dana is going to seize it! That said, congrats again to Becky. Will Dana defy expectations and finally challenge for at least one of those titles?
Ladies and Gentlemen: Elias.
Raw returns to The Drifter protesting his interrupting at Wrestlemania. But he promises things will be different. Instead of Elias’ performance of a lifetime, we got the return of Thuganomics. As a man of many instruments, Elias can tell Cena is no artist. Cena is just selfish and only riding Elias’ coattails! We all saw it last night. Fans sing for Elias like they did last night, too. So in the spirit of Brooklyn, Elias will show us just how easy it is to rap like Cena. Elias won’t need the guitar for this, actually. But where to begin?
Elias is sick of John Cena. WWE, Elias is the real biggest star. But if we want the Doctor of Thuganomics, then Elias will drop a few bars. John brought out that golden shovel even tho Elias can’t be buried, but that’s just what you do. Elias has three fingers up, but Cena, the middle one’s for you. Every superstar wants to make a name off Elias, he gets it, they’re fans. But mark his words, the next one who does is a dead man. Wait… OH NO! The bell tolls and the lights go down. Lightning strikes, and the moon is out! Elias doesn’t want to accept, but there’s no doubt! The Undertaker is here!! And he’s headed for the ring! Elias is about to wet himself, realizing he should NOT have decided to rap instead of sing.
Taker stands before Elias, and Elias tries to sneak out. Fans chant for Taker as Elias reconsiders. Taker watches Elias closely as he puts the guitar down and takes off his jacket. Elias turns around as Brooklyn starts losing its mind. Elias steps to Taker, and Taker steps to Elias. Taker and Elias stare down as fans sing “Taker’s gonna kill~ you!” Elias turns but swings, into Taker’s boot! Elias stands, but gets a CHOKE SLAM! Taker picks up his hat to move it aside before taking off his duster. Taker slashes the throat, and scoops Elias into the TOMBSTONE! Elias now Rests In Peace! Will Elias ever learn?
WWE World Championship & Universal Championship, Winner Takes All: Kofi Kingston VS Seth Rollins!

Kofi returns to return the favor! Kofi and Rollins fight The Bar off, and Rollins grabs a mic. He doesn’t get what they’re up to, but The Bar won’t get away with it. Winner Takes All can happen again later. But right now, they’ll team up to take The Bar on here and now! The Bar accept and hit the ring!

Kofi boots Cesaro, Trouble in Paradise! CURB STOMP! Cover, Rollins & Kofi win!
Winners: Seth Rollins & Kofi Kingston, Rollins pinning
The Champion VS Champion match may have been ruined, but Kofi and Rollins get revenge and stand tall together. Kofi offers a fist bump, and Rollins accepts it. The champions still have their belts, but will they both still reign when they come back to Winner Takes All?
Well this was going to be a great Raw, but it tumbled and fell at the end to only be a good Raw. We were given an amazing tease at the very beginning as The New Day appeared and Kofi issued his own Winner Takes All challenge! It was hyped all night and for a moment there, it felt like it was going to happen. But between commercials for SmackDown essentially spoiling things, as well as this logically being a little too soon, and just because Vince had the bait ‘n’ switch ready all along, it did not happen. Now, I’m not sure the logic of using The Bar other than they seem to be Vince’s muscle now, but that “impromptu” tag match in a vacuum was alright for being a rushed 10-minutes-or-less match. Perhaps SummerSlam or Survivor Series will see this Winner Takes All actually happen.
Alexa Bliss’ first match back was pretty good, but also kinda fast against Bayley. Lacey Evans finally does something resembling action, and has a pretty good brawl with Becky. Honestly, this would’ve been better served if this was the first or at least second time fans had seen her. But all of her sassy strutting was clearly just Vince trying to keep her on everyone’s minds. Dana Brooke speaking up might get her close to the Raw Women’s Championship, but there’s a good chance she loses to Lacey in Lacey’s first match. We finally see Lars Sullivan on Raw, and he’s used to “ruin” Angle’s final good-byes. I’m not sure the reason other than Lars needs to look legit on his own end, but I actually would’ve used Lars for that Winner Takes All No Contest. Lars going after both top guys would’ve meant more than going after someone retiring.
Speaking of #TopGuys, The Revival is truly out of the way since they lost a rematch tonight. I’m not sure what’s supposed to happen for Dash & Dawson now, but perhaps they win a second rematch down the way. The GLORIOUS Duo turns Heel instead of breaking up, which is fine by me. Aleister & Ricochet still win, but with the Superstar Shake-Up coming back, this rivalry might be broken up already. Or even a tag team, as Aleister & Ricochet have not won any titles since joining together. Aleister going to SmackDown is definitely logical given his marriage with Zelina Vega. He’d make a great opponent for Samoa Joe and the WWE United States Championship. Ricochet could be on either brand and challenge for the US or IC titles and make for a great match.
Sami Zayn’s return and IC title match was great, even in losing, but I’m not sure about this new take on his Heel persona. It’s one thing for Heels to be against fans but Sami feels like a weird offshoot of Daniel Bryan’s “FICKLE!” rhetoric. Sami will still make for great matches, but I was hoping he and Kevin Owens would reunite to face the Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. I don’t see Ambrose leaving for real, not with the beating Lashley gave him. Ambrose will probably “reconsider” and get a new contract after all, just so he can get revenge. And perhaps most surprising, we didn’t get a peep or even an appearance by Roman or Strowman. I suppose WWE realized not to overload things, but I’m curious as to where either goes from here. Maybe Money in the Bank since it’s now the post-Mania PPV?
My Score: 8/10

Velvet endures as Jade flexes and copies Cody. But Velvet turns it over onto Jade! Jade endures now, powers it back and pushes up, then blows a kiss to Cody. Velvet endures so Jade lets Velvet free to bring her up. Velvet throws body shots but Jade sweeps the legs! Jade goes out side, and starts looking under the ring! Jade brings out a TABLE! But this isn’t No Disqualifications! The ref and Shaq argue, Jade sets the table up, but Arn and the ref shout at her to stop.
Velvet goes out after Jade and clubs her! And bumps her off the table, to then put her in the ring! Velvet moves the table further from the ring, to bring out a second table! Velvet sets this table up, and it seems both women must just want to hurt each other, winning and losing be damned! Velvet goes up but Jade ROCKS her at the apron! Velvet shoulders back in, runs but Jade blocks the boot, only to take the ENZIGURI! Velvet hobbles and tags to Cody! Shaq gets in and he flexes on Cody. Shaq wants a test of strength, but then he switches hands on Cody. Cody still tries, they tie up, and Cody kicks low! But Shaq hits a knee! Shaq shouts out Brodie for a POWERBOMB!

Winners: Jade Cargill & Shaquille O’Neal, by pinfall
Jade stands tall but Shaq looks out cold from crashing through the hardwood! Will Shaq be alright after his AEW debut? Is this win just the first of many for Jade?
AEW medics take care of Shaq.
They get him on a gurney, load him into an ambulance, and take him to local facility. Tony Schiavone wants a quick word, but… Where did Shaq go? Is Shaq magic?!
PAC & Rey Fenix VS John Skyler & D3!
Though they do not have their third point, Penta El Zero M, The Bastard and the Firebird are here to represent the Death Triangle! Will they bring the pain to the Southern Savior & the Prince of Rome?

The Inner Circle heads to the ring!
The dastardly duo of Chris Jericho & MJF are here for a press conference to supposedly answer for everything they did to the Young Bucks’ father last week. Fans sing Judas for Jericho and AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Dasha is at the official podium as MJF and Jericho take their seats. The first question is from Barstool Sports, and is about what the AEW World Tag Team Championships mean to Y2MJF. Jericho says that everyone knows he is LE CHAMPION! That isn’t just a nickname, t’s the truth! But it’s been one year since he lost the AEW World Championship, so it’s time he has a title again! But with all the accolades he has, the greatness he has, he is a seven-time world tag team champion! SEVEN! With some of the biggest names in the industry, including Dwayne Johnson and Paul Wight! But none of them are better than MJF! And it is time for them to beat the hell out of the Young Bucks, just like they did to their stupid father!!
The second question is from Conrad Thompson of Grilling JR. The fighting is over, what are the odds of letting Sammy Guevara back into the Inner Circle? MJF can’t believe “turkey tits” here just asked that. Jericho said he never wanted to hear that name again, so get out of here! Go back to Nebraska! Next question! Brandon Walker of Barstool Sports ask why they attacked Papa Buck. Why? MJF is so sick of the shmucks out there making Papa Buck out to be a martyr! He attacked Jericho first! He did! So what they did was self-defense! But the worst part is that “that old worthless sack of crap” got his blood on MJF’s custom suit!
MJF knows most people can’t comprehend how expensive that is, but to put it in ways they can, he doesn’t shop at Target and Baby Gap! And if you thought what they did to Papa was bad, just wait until they get their hands on “Malnourished Matt” and “Not so Slick, I wish my hair was way more thick Nick!” But hey, it wasn’t their idea to attack Papa Buck, no. Did the Bucks think it was that smart to bring their bitch-ass pops down here? Especially knowing there isn’t a line that the Inner Circle wouldn’t cross? The Bucks need to do better. NEXT!
And it’s Eric Bischoff from 83 Weeks. His question is two parts, and he’ll direct the first part to Jericho. Do they know the condition of Papa Buck? And in Jericho’s list of stupid ideas, where does motivating the Bucks to come at you with a vengeance rank? Just curious. Jericho tells “Eric B” to shut his mouth! And second, they don’t know the condition of Papa Buck and they don’t care! As far as Matt & Nick go- They’re here! Matt & Nick step out on stage and glare at the Inner Circle. Nick knew that once this got started, the Inner Circle “pricks” would hurt their friends. But hurting their father makes this thing personal!
Matt says that their dad is the greatest dad in the world! He taught them everything they needed to know to be the men they are today! Being compassionate, have faith, love your family! They love their family! Papa Buck did everything that MJF’s and Jericho’s dads apparently failed at with them! Papa Buck taught them to dream big, and when he couldn’t afford to put them through college, he built them their own wrestling ring with his bare hands! Papa Buck taught them not to just stand idly by and let someone else do the work. You do it yourself! That DIY spirit is what created the Young Bucks, Being the Elite, and ALL ELITE WRESTLING! Without Papa Buck, there would be no Young Bucks or an AEW!
Laugh now, but do you know what that means? Then that means MJF is still at home, unemployed, on call with the Rosie O’Donnell Show! And for Jericho, let’s be honest! He’d be jerking the curtain at “the Performance Center.” Because Papa Buck taught them empathy, faith, family and one other thing! Stand up for yourselves and maybe kick some ass! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for tY2MJF! Things bust off with the Inner Circle but Brandon Cutler gets in! Referees rush out to stop this but that’s easier said than done! Wardlow tackles Cutler, Matt SUPERKICKS Santana and Nick tosses Ortiz! The Good Brothers are here to help out! They have tables set up and Nick ROCKS Ortiz!
Matt heads over, dares someone else to come get them, and Nick puts Ortiz on a table. Karl Anderson keeps Ortiz down while Nick climbs up! Nick aims from above the tunnel, and Matt has Santana off the stage! 450 AND MACHO ELBOWS through tables!! The Bucks are fired up and Y2MJF look worried, as they should! Will Matt & Nick teach Jericho & MJF what happens when real men fight back?
AEW profiles what it means to have an “Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match.”
America hasn’t seen something like this in 25 years! Once you hit the barbed wire ropes and trigger the switches, there WILL be explosions! Not only that, but the barbed wire will cut you up mercilessly! This will be something to remember for a long, long time because of the violence, the unknown, and the two men in it. Atsuhi Onita says the rules here are fitting for Moxley and Omega. It is unpredictable, dangerous, and painful. But Moxley’s honor won’t let him do any less to take Omega out or be forced into retirement trying. Will the Maniac take back what the Cleaner stole from him? Or will he give up everything in return?
Six Man Tag: Jurassic Express VS FTR & Tully Blanchard w/ JJ Dylan!
Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood are more than honored to have a legendary tag team wrestler come out of retirement for one night and join them in battle! But will it also be the end of them as Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus & Marko Stunt are coming #ForTheirRevenge?
AEW returns and Jurassic Express make their entrance. The trios sort out, Tully starts with Stunt and they tie up. Tully puts Stun in the corner, fires off body shots and knees, then tags in Dax. Stunt slips away, Jurassic Express back him up, and they stare FTullyR down! Stunt swipes at Cash but everyone cools off. Jungle Boy tags in, he and Dax tie up as a return from their great singles showdown. Dax puts JB in a corner, the ref calls for a break but Dax throws body shots and CHOPS! Dax throws EuroUppers, pulls hair, but JB elbows Dax, hits Cash, repeat! JB CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, whips, but Dax runs him over!
Things speed up, JB hurdles, drops, hurdles and dropkicks! Cash runs in but gets a dropkick! Tully distracts JB, Dax shoves him but JB rebound LARIATS! JB GERMAN SUPELXES Cash, trips up Dax, and gest the SNARE TRAP! Cash gets in to drag JB off the hold! JB trips Cash up and puts CASH in the Snare Trap! It’s on the outside so Cash tapping doesn’t matter! Dax gets something from Dillon! Tully talks with the ref about JB holding onto his hold, JB goes in and Dax SMACKS JB with a shoe!! Cover, TWO!! JB survives the classic SHOE screw job! Fans fire up, Dax bumps JB off buckles and tags in Tully. They mug JB, Tully CHOPS JB and JB bails out.
FTR hold the rope and Tully builds speed, to Fargo Strut instead. Tag to Dax, he drags JB up and throws him hard into railing! Fans rally and duel as AEW goes picture in picture.
Dax THROWS JB into more railing, then pulls up floor mats! Dax scoops and SLAMS JB on the bare concrete! JB writhes, Dax talks trash, then he drags JB up and ROCKS him with a EuroUpper! Tag to Cash, Cash fetches JB and toys with him. Cash puts JB in, drags JB up and whips him for a HARD shoulder at the ropes! Cash DECKS JB with a EuroUpper! FTR soak up the heat as Cash stomps JB down! Tag to Tully and he stomps JB around. Tully drags JB up, bumps him off buckles, then tags in Dax. Dax drags JB by his hair, CLUBS him on his back, then paces about. Tully stands on JB’s hair out of the ref’s sight!
Dax drags JB up, snapmares him and wraps on a chinlock. Dax grinds JB down and thrashes him around into a stretch. Dax fish hooks JB’s face, the ref reprimands, so Dax jams an elbow into JB”s face! Dax clamps onto JB’s face again with a smothering chinlock! JB endures as Dax grinds his forearm in over an dover, but the ref reprimands. Dax lets off, taunts Stunt, but the ref keeps Stunt out. Dax puts JB in a corner and CHOPS him! AEW returns to single picture as the CHOPS fly, and JB hits a BIG back suplex! Both men are down, fans rally up, Cash tags in to intercept JB! Cash scoops and RAMS JB into a corner, to then SLAM him down!
Cash hops up and leaps, but the Vader Bomb gets BOOTS! JB is down, as is Cash, and fans rally as they crawl! Hot tags to Dax and LUCHASAURUS! Luchasaurus runs FTR over, throws big hands and CHOPS, then BOOTS Cash and mule kicks Dax! Luchasaurus fires off on Cash in a corner and Tully starts slipping in. Stunt becomes Luchasaurus’ weapon to CROSSBODY Tully down! Luchasaurus choke grips FTR, but they both kick low! Cash DECKS Stunt, then FTR whips Luchasaurus corner to corner! Luchasaurus powers through their double clothesline to waistlock Cash! Cash grabs at Dax, Luchasaurus GERMAN SUPLEXES them both!! AND KIPS UP!
Fans are thunderous for Luchasaurus as he choke grips Dax. Dax slips out of the lift, baits Luchasaurus into a corner and POSTS him! Dax climbs up, JB runs over to go up and SUPER STEINER Dax into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Luchasaurus is surprised but he tags JB in. Cash drags Luchasaurus out to TORNADO DDT him to the floor! JB WRECKS Cash with a dropkick, Dax runs in but JB elbows and ECKS him! JB DECKS Tully, climbs up top, but Cash returns to anchor JB! Dax climbs, Cash tags in! SUPERPLEX and FROG SPLASH! The Power and Glory! Cover, TWO!! Cash GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!! SNAP DRAGON! Bridging cover, STUNT SPLASHES IN!
Tully goes after Stunt to slingshot BRAINBUSTER!!! Fans can’t believe they’re seeing it again! But Tully turns around and Luchasaurus is there! Tully eggs him on, Luchasaurus choke grips, but Luchasaurus has a heart, so he just TAIL WHIPS Tully instead! JB tags Luchasaurus in, they focus on Cash, JURASSIC EXPRESS! Cover off the back suplex bomb, TWO!?!? Cash survives but barely! JB builds speed to DIVE, but who was that in the beanie?! He took the shot for JB, and Dax gets Luchasaurus so the same mystery man can CLOBBER Luchasaurus! Tag to Cash, then to Tully! They combine for a DOUBLE SPIKE PILEDRIVER!! Cover, FTullyRwins!!
Winners: FTR & Tully Blanchard, by pinfall
One way or another, the returning legend gets a win alongside the self-professed best tag team ever! And speaking of all that controversy, the man in the beanie was SHAWN SPEARS! The Chair Man returns, and is now on the team! Coach Arn is watching from the tunnel, and says he’s seeing this foursome. Is this a revival of the Horsemen?
Tony Schiavone is on stage with big news!
AEW is expanding and now has a third show of in-ring programming: Dark Elevation! And his cohost for that will be… THE GIANT, PAUL WIGHT! #NoMoreBS, but definitely big things for AEW! Schiavone is glad to have “G” here, and the fans are loving this! Did anyone see this turn coming? But that aside, Schiavone’s known Wight since he had long hair and a bright future. Wight is so happy to be in AEW. Fans chant “Welcome Home!” and Wight is definitely glad to be back on TNT. He is looking forward to working with the talent in AEW, and cohosting Elevation with Schiavone. There, Wight can do color commentary on the amazing and young talent!
But don’t worry, Wight will take this job seriously, too. He has a scoop! The biggest scoop EVER! Oh? This Sunday, AEW Revolution, they will hire and put under contract a Hall of Fame talent that will be a HUGE asset to AEW! But it’s not who you think. You’ll find out and Wight wants us to know you heard it here first! Who could Wight be suggesting?
AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals: Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Ryo Mizunami!

The Full Metal Warrior, Hikaru Shida, is watching this one very closely, but which familiar foe will she be facing at Revolution?
