An insane opener between three great tag teams! But can Best Friends do it all again when AEW returns to Chicago?
But the Dark Order have a message for Best Friends! Hopefully Trent and Chuckie enjoyed their win. The Dark Order have a long list of targets, but their first will be Best Friends. They promise to make it long and painful. “All Hail the Dark Order.” The lights drop, and when they come back up… the Dark Minions are here! Best Friends stand their ground but the minions don’t attack. Then why are they here? The lights drop again, and then come up… The minions are gone! What power does the Dark Order possess? Will they be in the lead towards the AEW World Tag Team Championships?
The Elite are upset.
Nothing AEW has promised them has come true. They were promised private jets, luxurious hotel rooms and gourmet food, but got economy, tents, and cheese sandwiches! They don’t even have a real pool!
Kenny Omega is also upset because their bags haven’t arrived. But there is good news. The seamstresses are working on new gear! It’s gonna be amazing! The budget will cover it, guys. Fyter Fest, yo! Is it going to work out? Nick has hits doubts. Matt says it’s actually great. Though it took like half the budget. But the models will have to be let go… QT Marshal takes care of choosing who stays and who goes. In their place: mannequins!
Shhh! The AEW Librarian, Leva Bates, is here.
And she finds the other librarian, Peter Avalon, in the tent. He rips up the tent?! And throws it into the kiddie pool? There goes the deposit. And he even wrecks one of the mannequins! That’s just mean. Bates speaks. “This audience is full of gamers.” But why are they wasting time with games and not reading books? Daytona says, “We Can’t Read!” But Bates and Avalon say that there are more than just comic books and manga. There are real words in these! Just trust in them: read books. Because Leva and Peter are both the Librarian. Shh…! But here to make some noise, it’s Allie!
AEW Buy-In – Allie VS Leva Bates VS Peter Avalon!
Only AEW can make history by having their first women’s singles match on their second special. But will the Librarian hush the bubbly Allie?
Leva dodges Allie to then shush her. Allie and Leva circle and tie up, but Leva dodges again to say shush. Allie keeps her cool as she circles with Leva again. Leva dodges but Allie stops the shush! And pulls on the finger! Peter feels the pain as Allie wrenches harder! Allie throws Leva down then twists the finger harder. Leva begs for mercy but Allie stomps the finger!

Leva gets loud as she drags Allie up. Leva underhooks but Allie slips through to a neckbreaker! Fans chant “Reading Rainbow!” as both women are down. A standing count begins but passes 5 before either stirs. Fans rally up and both women are up at 7. Leva swings but misses, Allie hits back! And again! Allie fires off forearms and CHOPS, backing Leva down. Allie whips corner to corner then runs in, big back elbow! Side to side now, forearm smash!

Winner: Allie, by pinfall
Books really do help! Just not how the Librarians expected them to. But can Allie repeat success against the Chief Branding Officer, Brandi?
Kenny Omega puts some work in.
But the musical acts are gone. Even Blink. Blink what? Blink 1 8 2. Oh damn it! Kenny was just back there! Well sorry, Kenny, they left. Can the Best Bout Machine pull this show together and make it work?
AEW Buy-In – Hardcore Match: Michael Nakazawa VS Alex Jebailey!
It’s time to get extreme with the body oil king! He gets to settle things with the CEO of CEW from a past encounter, but will it work out his way when Jebailey can afford pyro? Wait he can afford his own pyro?
Nakazawa has them cut the music. He has a word for “Mr. Cripple.” Oh wait sorry that’s not kosher in America. For those who don’t know him, this is THE Michael Nakazawa. And last year, Jebailey cheated to win. That’s why CEO Games sucks. Nakazawa was in Vegas and fans were talking about EVO. But at least Jebailey recovered from a bad right leg. Congrats. Jebailey says Nakazawa wasn’t paying attention, it was the left leg. Oh it was? Okay then> Nakamzawa kicks out the bad leg! The bell rings and the match begins!

Pool toy attack! Flamingo hook, to fireman’s carry, but Jebailey slips out to scoop and slam Nakazawa into the pool! Fans lose their minds as Jebailey drags Nakazawa back to the ring. Jebailey wants to do this old school as he drags out traffic signs, remote controls, and even a kendo stick! Oh, and a table! Fans really like that one.
Jebailey sets the table up then goes to the ring. But Nakazawa bashes him with a remote! ANd chokes him with the cord! UP up down down A B, then Nakazawa stands Jebailey up. Nakazawa tries to suplex but so does Jebailey! So Nakazawa bites him! Then runs to DIVE through him! SPEAR into the table!! Now fans really lose their minds! Nakazawa puts Jebailey into the ring and covers, but lets up!? He wants to hurt Jebailey as he grabs the kendo stick! SMACK! SMACK! And then from under his shorts, Nakazawa removes his own jock strap! He straps it on his hand, but Jebailey ducks for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Nakazawa is down but Jebailey drags out one more thing from under the ring: a mystery bag. And inside that bag… push button toys!

Nakazawa’s own strap has trapped him, but then he ducks to wring out. The mandible claw gets the ref! LOW BLOW from Jebailey! Not illegal, but not cool. Mahistrol, but the ref can’t count! The fans get to 7 before the ref gets to TWO! Nakazawa reverses to a cover, with the strap in Jebailey’s face! Nakazawa wins!
Winner: Michael Nakazawa, by pinfall
The slippery Nakazawa survives a rather game gamer CEO. Will this series continue? And will that fan keep Nakazawa’s thrown jock strap?

Triple Threat: Nyla Rose VS Riho VS Yuka Sakazaki!
These three made great impressions at Double or Nothing, but especially the wrestling idol, Riho, being on the winning side of the Joshi trios tag. But now that she and the wrestling magical girl are alone, will they have any chance of surviving the #NativeBeast?
The Joshi shake hands to show respect, but even Nyla shares in that. Until she throws Riho into buckles! The bell rings as she puts Yuka in the same corner.

As for Laredo and the Lucha Brothers, will they continue to bring the AAA into AEW?
Unsanctioned Match: Jon Moxley VS Joey Janela!
Technically this match is not the main event, because AEW can’t even officially approve of these two crossing paths in the ring. However, this was going to be the only way to have these two passionately violent and reckless men have an even remotely safe encounter. The lights turning off and turning back on signal that this is a match where anything goes! Will AEW’s second event already be its bloodiest? Or will both these manage to keep their bodies in one piece?
The Lunatic and the Bad Boy are ready to go but are oddly calm with the bell. Janela and Mox get face to face, but then Janela pie faces Mox. Mox keeps his cool, to then kick and CHOP away! Mox whips but Janela holds ropes. Janela sends Mox out and then runs, to DIVE! Direct hit and they go into barriers! Moxley staggers away but Janela is right after him with haymakers. Moxely hits back and throws Janela over railing! Fans truly get a front row view as Moxely punches Janela and chops him around. Janela chops back then clubs Mox towards barriers. Janela dumps Mox over and then throws more forearms. He throws Moxley into the post, then goes looking under the ring. Janela brings out a table! Janela stands it up and then borrows a prosthetic leg! He bashes Moxley, but then Moxley throws Janela into steps!
Moxley swags about as he goes looking for something, too. He brings out a classic chair and tosses it in the ring. Moxley fetches Janela and drags him in for big forearms. He has the chair and scoops Janela with it, for a chair slam! Janela writhes while Moxley takes a seat. Moxley doesn’t even care his eyebrow bleeds already. Janela throws forearms and then puts Moxley in a corner. Janela CHOPS Moxley to take a seat then fores off more. He climbs up top and aims, leaps, but swantons onto only the chair! Moxley got clear and let Janela crash and burn! Moxley covers, TWO! He fires off fists and elbows to Janela’s head, then goes back out. Moxley goes looking again, and brings out a chair wrapped in barbed wire! Because Moxley probably prepared this one himself!
Janela crawls to a corner but Moxley stomps him out. Moxley scoop slams Janela then returns to his barbed wire chair. Moxley puts that chair on Janela to STOMP it into him! Fans call Mox a “Sick F*ck” and he takes a bow! Moxley climbs up, but Janela SHORYUKENS! Janela throws enziguris and forearms, then climbs up to join Moxley. SUPER STEINER onto the barbed wire! And then SMACK with it on Moxley’s back! Cover, TWO! Moxley writhes in pain as his back starts to bleed. Janela grabs himself a second table and puts that in the ring. Fans cheer as Janela starts setting it up in the corner. Moxley stands and fireman’s carries Janela, but he isn’t sure which table to use. He goes for the one outside, but Janela holds on! Janela forearms Mox back and wants to suplex!
Mox fights Janela off then joins him on the apron, only for Janela to Russian Leg Sweep them both, through the table! Fans chant “A E DUB!” as Janela stands up from the wreckage. Janela throws Moxley in but Moxley SPINEBUSTERS him through that other table! Moxley slumps out of the ring from all the pain, and brings out a third table! Then a fourth! He sets both tables up by the ring, but Janela flips him off. Moxley cusses Janela out as he throws down hands! Moxley then goes out to find more things. He has a wood panel with barbed wire! Was Moxley doing that all himself? Fans again know Moxley is a “Sick F*ck” as he goes to Janela.
Moxley scoops Janela, but Janela slips out. Janela runs but has to stop himself. Moxley kicks but Janela denies Death Rider. Janela fireman’s carries, to Death Valley Drive Moxley through the barbed wire board!! Janela drags Moxley out of the steel thorns to cover, TWO! Fans duel and rally as Janela starts punching Moxley. Moxley fires back and its a brawl! Janela gets the edge and throws one extra big one! Moxley sits down but comes back with a LARIAT! Moxley has his barbed wire chair back but he ditches that for his table idea. He drags Janela up for a powerbomb, gets him up for a Canadian rack, but Janela slips out to SUPERKICK! And then SUPERKICK him to the apron!
Janela checks under the ring real quick, and finds a ladder! This has officially become a TLC match! Moxley gets up as Janela sets the ladder up. Moxley stops Janela before he can do more, and the two brawl outside again. Janela bounces Moxley off the steel steps again and again, then puts him on the two tables. Janela leaves Moxley behind to go to the ladders! Fans plead, “Please Don’t Die!” But Janela goes all the way up, and LEAPS! Macho Elbow through the tables! Fans lose their minds all over again as the referee checks on both men. Both men are somehow okay to continue, and Janela is up first. Janela moves table wreckage around to go in search of more. There’s a second board of barbed wire?! Fans have to be careful as Janela drags that out and makes it a bridge!
Janela goes in search of Moxley, who is in the ring. Mox gets him with a DDT! Moxley drags Janela up in a fireman’s carry, to Death Valley BOMB Janela through the board!! Now it’s Janela’s turn to be stuck in the wires! Fans still love “A E DUB!” even though this technically has nothing to do with them. Janela frees himself from the wreckage, but not without scraping himself on the wires. Mox drags Janela into the ring and stalks him like a shark with blood i the water. Fans fire up as Janela throws slaps. Moxley throws knee after knee after knee into Janela’s face! But he isn’t done, because he brings out some kind of bucket. But what’s in the bucket? A bag. And in the bag is…? THUMBTACKS!
Moxley grabs Janela’s boot and starts undoing it? And the other one! He exposes Janela’s feet! Again, Moxley proves he’s a “Sick F*ck” as Janela is without even socks! Moxley stands Janela up, but Janela fights back! Janela avoids some tacks, but gets a kick and an X-Plex onto the tacks! Janela refuses to give up because of this, but Moxley stomps him into the tacks! Then atomic drops him onto them! Janela screams in pain from the needles in his heels! But then he just dares Moxley to give him more. He flips Moxley off! Moxley stomps Janela, and pulls out something else from the bucket! Another bag of thumbtacks! DEATH RIDER ON TACKS!! Double-edged as it is, Mox covers Janela, Mox wins!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall
The Paradigm Shift continues as Moxley gets his first win in AEW! Though, does it really count when this was an unsanctioned match? He probably doesn’t care either way, he’d do it all again if he had to. Will Moxley only up the ante next time when he goes up against Kenny Omega?
But speaking off, Omega runs down the ramp to V-Trigger! Then piledrive Mox through what’s left of one table, and bury him with the wrecking of another! Then to recreate what he did with Jericho, springboard double stomps to sandwich Moxley in it all! But Omega isn’t done, he drags Moxley up to club him up the way. They end up by the pool but Omega punches and throws Moxley past all that. Omega uses the unused musical equipment to batter Moxley more. Moxley hits back but Omega is just all over him again! Omega drags Moxley up to throw him into the drum set! Omega has the drum sticks to count himself in. He plays a drum solo on Moxley’s back! Then he has the electric guitar, to SMASH it on Moxley’s back!
Referees reprimand Omega but fans want an encore. So Omega strums the guitar before dropping it. Omega leaves, having gotten back at the Lunatic. Referees help Molxey up but he shoves them away. Omega comes back with a trash can! And he bashes the can on Mox until it’s completely dented! Omega drags Moxley up, to steal the Death Rider, and drive Moxley into the can! But Moxley grins. Will all of this only prompt Moxley to go all out at All Out?
What another great event, and this wasn’t even seen as much more a B-tier show. The Buy-In matches were great for being kickoff show matches. It makes a lot of sense for the Best Friends to win, because they and the “Dark Order” can settle things at All Out while also going forward into the tag title tournament. I feel like the winner of that All Out match is going to go far in the eventual tournament, and might even be tag title contenders. The Librarians are a pretty funny duo, and that was a decently funny and good match. Allie wins but I feel it’s so she’ll lose to Brandi. Then that “Hardcore” match was definitely more comedy than anything, but that doesn’t mean it was bad. I enjoyed a lot of that, but clearly commentary was selling this as sticking it to WWE’s Shane Best in the World storyline.
Daniels VS Cima was a solid opener, just straight up great wrestling from two guys who have been around for a long time and know what they’re doing. Great to see Cima win, he’ll have a great match at Fight for the Fallen with Omega. The Women’s Triple Threat was brilliantly done, all three women look even better than they did from Double or Nothing. It was a natural choice to have the two smaller opponents work together on and off, and also one of the underdogs to win. I just didn’t think it’d be Riho off of Nyla. But it works to make Nyla a Heel as the bigger wrestler, and then there’s clearly tension still between Riho and Yuka that can all play towards the AEW Women’s Championship race.
MJF is the perfect Heel, because he makes you hate him the right way. His promo before the Fatal 4 Way was great, and then the Fatal 4 Way was even greater. Also knowing this means Kip Sabian is the next opponent, it was an interesting move for Hangman to win. It does keep Hangman strong even with All Out a couple months away, but with the PPV events being the only things for momentum right now, losing even here would hurt Hangman. Hangman will surely win at Fight for the Fallen, too, so he’ll be red hot going into All Out against Jericho. Cody VS Darby was a pretty great match, but damn there were two spots that really hurt: Darby’s trust fall to the apron and Cody taking that unprotected chairshot.
A time limit draw was a good way for Darby and Cody to stay even, but WOW that chairshot. I would really hope most of that is kayfabe, but yikes. This obviously makes the Fight for the Fallen tag match of Rhodes VS Bucks “questionable,” but it does give us a potential Cody VS Shawn Spears program going into AEW TV. Just don’t do another one of those chairshots, it is on the same dangerous thread as the Naito-Ibushi controversy at Dominion. The Elite VS Lucha Bros & Laredo was amazing, and is definitely a great “main event.” The show really could have ended there and it would’ve been amazing. Elite wins to keep everyone strong while keeping the rivalries with Lucha Bros alive. Omega VS Pentagon II has to happen as part of AEW TV.
And then the real main event, the “Unsanctioned Match,” well, damn. That was definitely above my expectations, yet perfect for what those two madmen are known for. They really went crazy with the barbed wire, too. The creativity with the thumbtacks was great, too. Never seen anyone take the opponent’s shoes off to make him walk on the tacks. Obviously Moxley was going to win, he needs to roll on towards his match with Omega, while also still staying strong enough for his time in NJPW’s G1 Climax. It was also great for Omega to beat the crap out of Moxley as payback for Double or Nothing. I wonder if this prompts All Out to be some form of No Disqualification, maybe even Last Man Standing, because clearly this has gotten that intense in just two events.
My Score: 9/10

Backstage interview with Jurassic Express.
Tony Schiavone notes the big 8 Man Tag they had last week, and the bumps and bruises from that match. Jungle Boy says the entire Express is banged up, with Christian Cage at home nursing his neck and JB’s own head still ringing. But JB’s sarcastic as he says thankfully Luchasaurus can even walk after that “terrifying” powerbomb. Kenny Omega and Adam Cole barge in, Omega saying someone must be desperate giving these guys promo time. Luchasaurus growls but Omega wants him to calm down. Cole dares Luchasaurus to do something, but then the Young Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK JB from the other end! And then The Elite mugs Luchasaurus!
Brandon Cutler confiscates the camera while Cole puts JB in a camel clutch to make him watch as Omega and the Bucks get Luchasaurus up for a TRIPLE POWERBOMB into a table! Nick Jackson says, “That felt GOOD! CACAW~!” Omega says they kicked Luchasaurus in the beanbags! “That’s what happens!” Will The Elite continue to bully anyone they want in AEW?
The Inner Circle is here!
Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz are together again after the Men of the Year and American Top Team tried to pick Le Champion apart last night on Rampage. Fans sing Judas again as the five stand in the ring. Santana gets the mic first and asks Miami what’s up! “Damn, one of the only cities we can count on to come two nights in a row, and y’all bring that same energy!” But Santana gets to the nitty gritty. While he and Ortiz have been handling business, they’ve been noticing that their boys are dealing with some American Top Team cabrones. But before he can say more, here come Men of the Year and American Top Team!
Dan Lambert has a question: Is this all the members of the Inner Circle Jerk? Or do they bring in fresh hands every once in awhile for variety’s sake? Fans boo but Lambert asks if they know how many championships American Top Team has given Miami! They should be throwing a parade! Show some damn respect! Jericho says, “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Dan Lambert, the fat faced dips*it!” Lambert is furious as the fans chant that at him. Jericho says it is interesting, seeing Lambert and his nefarious Neanderthals, but Jericho has a question for Paige VanZant.
“You always seem to be wherever the Inner Circle is. You’ve got a little bit of an obsession with Le Champion, maybe? Huh? You maybe gonna try and slide into my DM’s?” She says, “You wish!” Well Jericho says it doesn’t matter, he wouldn’t touch her with her husband’s genitalia. And he sees all the pictures for the Instagram. What filter does she use? Juno, bimbo or bitch? All the jokes are done, though. Before you is a reunited Inner Circle in Miami! No more 5v1 beatings, they are ready, face to face, 5v5! They want a 10 Man Tag, The Inner Circle VS American Top Team & The Men of the Year! Choose whoever you want, because there is NOBODY CRAZIER than the Inner Effin’ Circle!!
Lambert says if it was up to him, they’d beat the Inner Circle’s asses every week and collect the paychecks. But the Men of the Year have bigger plans and that involves championship gold. Lambert sees the biggest mouth on Jericho, the longest rap sheets on Santana & Ortiz, and Hager, he’s got the biggest head on a human being Lambert’s ever seen! Does Hager step feet-first into his shirt and pull it up? The fact is, though, the only one with a title is “Tiny Tim,” so he’s the one with the stroke to get these guys the match they want. The question is, will Sammy step up for the Inner Circle and hear their terms?
Lambert won’t tell anyone his terms now, because he doesn’t wanna waste another breath on the trash balls in the city he used to call his hometown! Scorpio Sky adds that while they wait these seven days, he’ll give them something to thing about. Jericho’s brain might be a little fuzzy after another Masvidal knee, but please don’t forget that Scorpio pinned the GOAT not once but twice. Fans chant, “You Still Suck!” Sammy tells Scorpio to shut up! It doesn’t matter if it’s one, both, or all, Sammy will beat them right now! They must’ve forgotten that he’s the Spanish God and TNT Champion! Sammy says see you next week, “and guess what? I’ma kick all y’alls asses!” Will this war only escalate as the weeks roll bye?
AAA Tag Team Championships: The Lucha Brothers VS ??? w/ Andrade El Idolo!
Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero have refused to join El Idolo’s stable, so he’s brought in “Las Super Ranas,” aka The Super Frogs, to take them on and take those titles! But are these two really the best Andrade could find? Or are these just the only two willing to spend time with the arrogant Andrade?
The introductions are made, the AAA belts are raised, and we see if Las Super Ranas are feeling froggy!
Fenix starts with Super Rana Uno, they circle and tie up, Rana Uno waistlocks but Fenix switches. CM Punk points out that given their height and build, Las Super Ranas is just FTR. Either way, Ranas Uno gets a headlock takeover but Fenix headscissors. Rana Uno kips free, hits another takeover but Fenix again headscissors. Rana Uno kips free, sweeps the leg, covers, ONE! Fenix sweeps the legs, covers, ONE! Fenix handsprings and fans fire up. Rana Uno offers a handshake, Fenix doesn’t, but they tie up with knuckle locks. Rana Uno rolls, wrangles Fenix down but Fenix kips up and goes around the ropes to wrench to a wristlock.

Rana Uno kicks Fenix away, then he CLUBS Penta down. Las Super Ranas double suplex but Penta saves Fenix, and the Lucha Brothers get around to double mule kick! And off come the masks! Las Super Ranas ARE just FTR! FTR CLOBBER the Lucha Brothers with clotheslines! Fans jeer FTR as AEW goes picture in picture!
FTR paces about, Dax Harwood drags Fenix up to whip and CLOBBER! Then he hauls Fenix up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Dax stalks Fenix to ropes, tags Cash Wheeler, and they DOUBLE ROPE GUILLOTINE! Cash goes to the apron to drop a leg! Fenix writhes, Cash climbs back in and drags Fenix to center, cover, TWO! Cash craps on with a cobra clutch! Fenix endures as Cash thrashes him around then grinds him down. Fans rally up with Alex Abrahantes as Fenix fights up, but Cash keeps him from the corner. Tag to Dax, Fenix arm-drags Cash out but Dax CLOBBERS Fenix from behind! Dax sucker punches Penta, but Fenix throws body shots and a CHOP!
Dax CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS back but Dax CHOPS again! Cash hooks Fenix, Dax CHOPS then DECKS Fenix! Dax drags Fenix up, chokes him on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Cash sneaks over to get a cheap shot in! Dax drags Fenix up, Cash joins in, they double suplex to hang Fenix out to dry! Fenix flies off onto the ramp, Penta runs in but FTR double elbow him out of the ring! Dax drags Penta up, Penta ROCKS Dax then GAMANGIRIS Cash! Fenix runs in, Penta gives him a boost and Fenix DOUBLE MISSILE DROPKICKS! Fenix rallies on FTR with forearm after forearm, then he puts both FTR side by side!
Penta goes up, DOUBLE QUE PASO! Double cover off the double stomps, TWO!! Fans rally up and Cash flounders to ropes. Penta drags him up, whips him to ropes, but Cash reverses and Dax hooks a leg! Penta still throws Cash up and out onto Dax! Fans fire up and shout, “CERO! MIEDO!” Fenix goes up top, Penta FLIES to take out Cash and Fenix LEAPS to take out Dax! The Lucha Bros put Dax in as fans lose their minds. Penta gets Dax up, “This is Awesome!” as Fenix climbs back up. But Cash drags Penta down! Penta BOOTS Cash then runs, but Cash dodges the sliding dropkick! Cash has a title belt but Penta ducks the attack to SUPERKICK Cash down!
Penta runs in but Cash TOSSES him into the timekeeper’s area! Fenix tightrope walks and avoids the belt shot to springboard ROUNDHOUSE! Dax O’Conner Rolls, with the ropes! TWO and Dax flies into a corner! Fenix sobats, whips, but Dax reverses! Fenix tiger feint rewinds, but Dax ducks the heel kick to ROCK him with a right hand! Dax whips, Fenix rewinds again to HEEL KICK! Down goes Dax and fans fire up! But here comes Tully Blanchard, in matching frog green! He distracts the ref, Dax has the AAA belt! Fenix goes up and up, MOONSAULT into the BELT SHOT!! Dax gets Fenix up, BRAINBUSTER! Cover, FTR WINS?!?!
Winners: FTR, by pinfall (NEW AAA Tag Team Champions)
Fans boo but “Las Super Ranas” FTR now have these belts! Will Andrade rub this in the Lucha Brothers’ faces forever now?
Backstage interview with Dante Martin & Lio Rush.
Tony Schiavone talks with them about the loss to Malakai Black. Lio says hey, and then says what happened tonight was meant to happen. Moments like this are just growing pains. In order to succeed, you need to fail, and that’s what Dante did tonight: failed. But he failed because of his own doing and he knows that. Lio says, “What did I tell you? Listen to me and everything will be money.” Lio just wants to take Dante on the highest flight possible. From this day forward, Dante will have a new tag team partner. And his name is Lio Rush! Lio offers a fist bump, Dante gives it but a bit reluctantly. How will Dante’s brother, Darius, and even Matt Sydal feel about this?
AEW returns with an interview with FTR & Andrade.
Schiavone finds the NEW AAA Tag Team Champions after they stole those from the Lucha Brothers. They didn’t steal anything! Andrade clearly orchestrated a conspiracy, but FTR says they are the greatest luchadors of all time! MJF joins in the celebration because these titles now belong to The Pinnacle. MJF says hey to Andrade, and “Uno momento dinero, comprende?” Andrade says if MJF wants that in a check or cash. How about both? Alright. They hand over the payment and MJF is loving it! Now remember, this was a one night only thing, okay? Mucho gracias. The Pinnacle goes off to party, but will they have to worry about Death Triangle coming for them?
Jon Moxley VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Orange Cassidy!
The AEW World Title Eliminator bracket hasn’t been revealed but the Maniac is surely wanting to be on it. Will he use The Decoder to make a final case as to why he should be in that tournament?
The bell rings and Moxley CLOBBERS Yuta! Yuta flounders, Moxley puts him on ropes to club away with crossface forearms, but he lets off as the ref counts 4. He drags Yuta up, and gives him an X PLEX! Moxley storms around, rains down furious fists on Yuta, but the ref counts about the closed fists. Moxley lets off, gets in the ref’s face, drags Yuta up, PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, Moxley wins!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall
As quickly as he took Yuta out, Moxley heads out! Cassidy goes into the ring to check on Yuta along with the medics, will Freshly Squeezed use the tournament to avenge his protégé?
Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.
Schiavone congratulates her on her defeat over Hikaru Shida and denying her that 50th win, but he asks about Serena’s apparent attitude change. She says it is very simple: It was only a matter of time until she had to drag this division up to HER level. During her time away, she watched this division get way too comfortable and have too much fun. But then Shida rushes in and fires off on Serena! Not getting her 50th win is one thing but this is about that crystal trophy smashed in her head right after! Will Shida get her 50th win and revenge off the Woman of 1000 Holds?
Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS The Super Kliq!
Convinced that The Elite will interfere with Omega VS Hangman, Hangman’s real friends in the Dark Order called out Adam Cole & The Young Bucks! The Super Kliq already warmed up beating down Jurassic Express, will they only do worse to Evil Uno, John Silver & Alex Reynolds?

A valiant effort from the Dark Order, but they just couldn’t keep up. But wait! Here comes Jungle Boy! He wants revenge for Luchasaurus, but he’s alone in a 3v1! They throw JB out, then dare him to try something. So JB gets a chair! JB rushes in, Cutler tries to hold JB off but the chair shields JB from the cold spray. JB kicks Cutler low to SMACK him with the chair! The Bucks are furious but they don’t save Cutler from the SNARE TRAP with cold spray!! Cutler taps and JB lets him go as the Super Kliq retreats. Will Jurassic Express regroup and get their revenge in The Elite at some point?
Arn Anderson and Cody Rhodes arrive at Dustin’s school.
And waiting inside are Lee Johnson, Brock Anderson, Red Velvet and KiLynn King. “There he is,” Big Shotty says, “Big Hollywood. Late.” Good to see he decided to grace them with his presence. Cody’s late, and lately he’s been acting like an “arrogant piece of shit.” Velvet SLAPS Cody, but King keeps her from doing more. Arn puts Cody through the old school drill. People attack, Cody reacts. Hip tosses, arm-drags, defending and countering, tying up, but then a sucker punch. Cody gets roughed up as Arn says that in order to be a champion, he has to overcome. Shawn Dean gets Cody with a pretty good enziguri, then King SLAPS Cody.
Cody says he has no idea what’s going on here. This isn’t teaching him anything! Arn has Cody look at a picture. Does he recognize who’s in it? Arn and Dusty. Cody has said he will never do anything that’d let the kids down. Does Cody think that on that given night from the photo, any kids were booing Dusty about what he did to Arn? No, because Arn had it coming. Malakai Black has it coming. Johnson jumps on Cody but Cody elbows him away. Is the American Nightmare going to sharpen his edge so that he can cut down the House of Black?
MJF heads to the ring.
He does a few stretches then gets a mic to speak. “Silencio, por favor.” MJF says it is bad enough that he is inside the place that smells like hookers and gasoline known as “Mid Miami,” but now Justin Roberts is all dressed up as Miami Vice yet forgets how to do his job. He can’t announce MJF for his match with Darby? In that case, MJF will do it for him! “Ladies and gentlemen, just in case you are deaf, dumb, blind, stupid, or by the looks of it, very poor, hailing from the most magical place in the world, Plainview, Long Island, New York! Weighing in at a svelte 226 pounds, he’s better than you and you know it: Maxwell Jacob Friedman, M! J! F!” Alright, Darby, let’s get this over with.
Fans chant, “You Suck! You Suck!” MJF says what really sucks is that Darby isn’t here tonight. So funny, because Darby claims MJF can’t break him mentally. And yet, they have a match scheduled tonight, and Darby no shows like a gutless coward! So maybe Darby was wrong. MJF did break him mentally! Fans boo because we all saw The Pinnacle, in ski masks, mug and brutalize Darby just last week. MJF continues to play the charade and says “Let’s be honest here.” MJF then insults the one fan as “Fat boy” and says he can’t hear him over the guy’s three chins. MJF pretends to be surprised to learn that Darby was attacked last week. Did Schiavone know? This is awful!
MJF says let’s be honest, still pretty unprofessional to not show up for a match. Like, c’mon. This is why Darby will always be the number two guy in AEW. And just like Miami, he will always be #MID. Now MJF is number one! But since he cares about the fans so much, he knows they wanted him to be in action against Darby, so by God, we’ll have that happen. Wardlow, come on out. Wardlow drags referee Bryce Remsberg out and MJF wants the ref to count to ten. If Darby doesn’t appear, the ref will raise MJF’s hand in victory as the past, present and future of pro-wrestling. “Get to counting, cue ball!” The ref counts, MJF wants him to speed up, and at 9, the lights go out!
IT’S STIIIIING~! And he has his baseball bat, too! MJF shoves Wardlow at Sting while he runs away! Sting SMACKS Wardlow with the bat! Wardlow gasps and sputters and Sting dares MJF to get in the ring. MJF fires up, throws off his scarf, jacket and shirt, storms right up to the apron, but then walks away again. Will the Salt of the Earth ever get some grit and face the consequences of his actions?
AEW returns with an interview with Anna Jay.
Schiavone speaks on the tough night for the Dark Order, and Jay starts to comment, but Britt Baker walks in! Britt says “But nothing, because what we witnessed tonight was the most elite faction in all of professional wrestling, The Super Kliq Baybay beat your loser friends, the Dark Order.” They are not losers! Uh, they literally lost, so they’re losers. And Jay is with them so she is a loser, too. She’s also sadly a follower, because she’s nothing without them and Tay Conti. So go have some kumbaya with them and come back when you’re ready. Jay ROCKS Britt with a right! These two brawl, referees rush in, and again Schiavone is in the area of chaos! Will Britt and Jay be joining in the fight of The Elite VS everyone else?
Penelope Ford w/ The Bunny VS Kiera Hogan!
The Superbad Girl wants in on the TBS Championship tournament while The Fire of Hotlanta is ready to heat everything up! Will Ford put Kiera out on her way to the gold?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Ford pulls hair to put Kiera in the corner, then lets off. Kiera points a finger gun, Ford shoves her but Kiera wraps on a headlock. Ford powers out, things speed up and Ford runs Kiera over! Things speed up again, Kiera jumps but Ford avoids the Thesz Press to arm-drag Kiera down! Ford has the cording hold and she grinds Kiera’s shoulder. Kiera fights up, throws body shots, then whips Ford to a corner. Kiera runs in and clotheslines, then brings Ford out, only for Ford to ROCK her with a forearm! Ford whips Kiera to the corner, back body checks, but Kiera dodges the boot to get a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!
Kiera drags Ford up but Ford throws forearms! Ford headlocks to BUCKLE BULLDOG! Ford then drags Kiera out to whip hard into ropes! Fans rally up as Ford paces and AEW goes picture in picture.
Ford shoves Kiera out of the ring, talks some trash and goes out after her. Ford chokes Kiera on the railing! The ref counts, Ford lets off with her hands, but Kiera shoves her away. Ford whips Kiera into railing! Ford smirks as she paces around, then she drags Kiera up to put her in the ring. Ford takes her time getting in then she covers, TWO! Ford grows annoyed but she drags Kiera up for a headlock. Ford puts Kiera on the ropes to choke her again! The ref counts as Ford thrashes around but she lets off to then KICK Kiera in the side. Ford puts Kiera in the ropes to HOTSHOT her! The ref reprimands as AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Kiera has Ford up top. Kiera CHOPS Ford, climbs up to join her, CLUBS away on Ford’s back, then stands Ford up on the very top. Kiera climbs up to SUPERPLEX! Both women are down but fans fire up! A standing count begins, the two stir and Kiera staggers up as fans rally. Kiera grabs Ford but Ford ROCKS her with a forearm! Kiera CHOPS, Ford CHOPS back! Kiera forearms, Ford gives it back, but Kiera gets the edge! Kira CHOPS, runs, Ford dodges but Kiera comes back to clothesline! Kiera rallies and SHOTGUNS Ford into a corner! Kiera runs Around the World to BOOT WASH! Cover, TWO!
Kiera stays focused as she drags Ford up. Ford breaks free to STUNNER outta nowhere! Ford then fireman’s carries but Kiera fights free to straitjacket and CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Ford survives and Kiera can’t believe it! Kiera gets fire dup and fans rally as she brings Ford around. Ford throws another forearm, then runs, handspring and CUTTER! Then the SUPERBAD MUTA LOCK! Kiera endures but Ford thrashes her, Kiera taps! Ford wins!
Winner: Penelope Ford, by submission
But Ford doesn’t have time to celebrate, here comes Ruby! Ruby fires off hands on Ford, and The Bunny is nowhere to be seen! Ruby TOSSES Ford, then dares her to bring the fight. The Bunny returns to reinforce Ford but they both retreat. The TBS Championship Tournament is still on the horizon, will this be settled in the bracket?
AEW hears from Miro.
“First I get beat and now you do not answer. Is that funny to you? You know I love my wife, but I can’t go home like this. Does that amuse you? Have I displeased you? Have I not bowed enough? Kneeled enough? Not given your name enough praise?” Miro says God gave him a body of granite but a neck of sand, “Is that some kind of joke?!” Miro questions where his God has gone and why he has forsaken his champion! Miro is done pleading, but he is telling us all. Miro will be his champion or his enemy. If God stays silent over his head, he will continue to snap necks under his boot. Everyone will know pain until Miro becomes champion once again!
Schiavone is in the ring!
Full Gear will be on Saturday, November 13th, and by winning the Casino Ladder Match, this man has earned a world title match! He introduces Hangman Adam Page! Fans fire up to see the Anxious Millennial Cowboy as he heads to the ring. Schiavone says Hangman and Omega, they were long time tag team partners, and then they met in the finals of last year’s World Title Eliminator Tournament. Omega won, he became champion, but now Hangman has his chance!
Hangman takes the mic to say, “Damn I’m excited for Full Gear! And in 2019, my friends and I, we left our home in Ring of Honor, we left our home in New Japan, to start All Elite Wrestling. I was excited then because I believed in our vision. I believed we could and I believed we would change the world, but it feels like the world changed us.” It sure changed Hangman. He told all of us that he’d be the first AEW World Champion, and he failed. He lost to Jericho, he lost to PAC, then he started to lose a lot more. He lost his confidence, his friends, and truthfully, himself.
“But the one thing that it felt like, for whatever reason, that I never seemed to lose, the one thing that grew week after week,” was the fans chanting “COWBOY S*IT!” And fans chant it now! To Hangman, that’s real. #CowboyShit was him taking his shot on day one. It was him winning the tag team titles with Kenny Omega and defending them every chance they got. It was learning to let the past live in the past and accept new friends into his life. It was also taking Hangman’s chance and putting it on the line, sticking his neck out for those friends. And #CowboyShit was having the balls to turn around and go home for the birth of a beautiful baby boy.
Fans chant for Hangman more, and he says, “So last week, I finally picked up the phone, I put my body on the line, I climbed the ladder to grab the chip, to grab the shot at the one thing that’s eluded me this whole time.” To Hangman, that’s the thing. “When you fall off, you get back up on the horse, you keep on riding, you keep blazing on ahead, because to me, that’s COWBOY SHIT!” Now, Hangman isn’t a fortuneteller, he won’t predict how Full Gear will go. But despite that, Hangman feels like the fans still believe in him. Fans cheer because they do! And for the first time in Hangman’s life, so does he! Fans cheer that sentiment greatly!
So the promise Hangman makes is that he will give us everything! He will give us his heart, his soul, every fiber of his being, his blood, sweat and one way or another, even his tears. The one thing that he is 100% sure about, is that we will get #CowboyShit!! Will Hangman shoot his shot and finally hit the target to take the world title home?
Bryan Danielson VS Bobby Fish!
The American Dragon already went through hell facing Minoru Suzuki just last night, but he still came out on top. The Infamous One beat the Ace of Space in Lee Moriarty, but will Bryan go 2-0 this AEW weekend?

AEW reveals the World Eliminator Title Brackets!
Eight men have been selected and this tournament starts next Friday with Rampage! We will see: Jon Moxley VS The Dark Order’s Preston Vance! Orange Cassidy VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs! Lance Archer VS Eddie Kingston! And Dustin Rhodes VS Bryan Danielson!! The American Dragon has his path to the title, can he make it through The Natural and all the other heavy hitters to go for the gold?
An awesome episode for Dynamite, a great start to their third year. Malakai VS Dante was a great opener, and I like that Malakai showed respect to Dante there. That with Lio being a bit domineering and making himself Dante’s tag partner, I feel like this is how they shift things from Dante being Lio’s protégé to being Malakai’s. And despite Malakai saying he was done with the American Nightmare, we’re still getting their tiebreaker third match. I still feel like this is all too soon for Cody and Arn. I like that Arn is trying to bring out the toughness and aggression within Cody, but again there is a bit of a rush in Cody’s story pacing that isn’t needed.
The Inner Circle has a fairly good promo segment with American Top Team and Men of the Year, but just a 10 Man Tag seems too easy. I’m thinking Lambert comes back next week with the “demands,” which will be the stipulation that brings things up a notch. There was good overlapping of things with The Elite and their enemies, going after Jurassic Express before that awesome trios match with The Dark Order. Naturally, the Super Kliq wins, they’re going to be racking up wins. I bet they could even lead the way into a trios division at this point.
FTR being the “luchadores” Andrade enlisted is a bit disappointing, but I’m sure there were reasons actual AAA wrestlers couldn’t show up to take those titles off The Lucha Brothers. Maybe there will be a match for both sets of belts at Full Gear. MJF of course pretended he had no idea about last week’s attack on Darby, but if he keeps treating Wardlow like this, that guy is totally leaving the Pinnacle. But at the same time, we might get MJF & Wardlow VS Sting & Darby before this is all said and done. Miro delivers a good promo where his faith is basically shaken and now he’s angry. I’m a little surprised he wasn’t in the World Title Eliminator but I suppose he can do more if he’s battling anyone and everyone he can on Dynamite and Rampage.
Shida and Deeb have a good brawl, as do Britt and Jay. We’re getting Britt and Jay for Rampage next week but I bet we see Shida and Deeb some time before the TBS Championship Tournament to see if that 50th win happens. Ford VS Kiera was good but it felt a bit awkward at times. This was probably the first time these two really interacted in the ring, maybe next time will be smoother. Ruby gets a bit of payback on Ford but again, the TBS Championship Tournament is where things get settled for those two, as well. We then get a great promo from Hangman to really hype up his match with Omega, I am hoping we get a response from Omega next week.
Bryan VS Fish was a great main event, though a bit shorter than expected. Naturally, Bryan wins so that he can go strong into the World Title Eliminator Tournament. All of those matches are great, and it is a great opportunity for Preston Vance. Moxley will surely win that, though, and he’ll likely face Orange Cassidy. Cassidy clearly wasn’t happy seeing Moxley squash Yuta like that, and I would think he gets past Will Hobbs. That makes for an awesome semifinal, and we’ll surely see Bryan in the final four, too.
