ROH relives the closing moments of Summer Supercard’s world championship match.
Taven hits Shelly with with Just the Tip of the knee, but Taven isn’t done! But Shelley counters Climax, to a quarter stack! TWO, CLIMAX OUTTA NOWHERE! Cover, TWO to ghost pin! TWO, JUST THE TIP AGAIN! Headlock, CLIMAX! Cover, Taven wins!
Now we hear Taven’s words after the match.
“You just saw another name get added to the long list of people that were forced to bow down to the king!” Taven has beaten them all! The undefeated PCO, the undefeated Jeff Cobb, everyone. Taven is on pace to be the GREATEST ROH World Champion of all time! Fans boo in disagreement. But why is Taven the best? “Because IIII’M Matt-” Wait! El Toro Blanco, Rush, heads out to the ring! There is still one man Taven has yet to beat. And Rush joins Taven in the ring as fans chant his name. Taven doesn’t care who Rush is, he is the champion! Taven waves bye bye but will Rush still storm his way to a title match?
ROH throws it to Ian Riccaboni and Quinn McKay.
Team IQ is still buzzing over the undefeated Rush asserting himself as a contender in Toronto. Taven should count his lucky stars that he’s been champion this long, because he and Rush have met before in CMLL. That past might be an example of what will happen should they meet in ROH. As for Rush, ROH shares highlights of the No Disqualification grudge match between him and The Peacock, Dalton Castle!
No Disqualifications: Rush VS Dalton Castle!
The full match is available on Honor Club, but ROH TV jumps in as The Peacock brings Toro Blanco around the corner on the outside of the ring. Castle sits Rush down in a chair, then rocks him with a big right. Castle then struts and runs in to dropkick Rush out of the chair! Castle leaves Rush behind as he goes back into the ring, to mock Tranquilo! Fans boo and Rush slowly stirs. Castle is on him with forearms, but Rush shoves him away. Rush runs in, to get a German Suplex to the floor! Fans fire up as Castle says, “He’s dead!”
Cut to moments later, and Rush is not dead, he’s pushing the timekeeper’s table aside. Rush grabs the Beer City Cooler and tosses it into the ring! Hopefully the Bouncers won’t be offended. Castle avoids being hit by the falling cooler, but Rush is also throwing in other items, such as the ring crew’s case and the chairs. Rush slides in but Castle throws a part of the apron skirt? That must’ve been torn off during the match. It blinds Rush long enough for Castle to SMACK him in the head with the trash can! But it is the plastic kind, not the metal kind, so it really only annoys and angers Rush. Castle keeps trying but Rush dodges to give Castle a German Suplex! Rush kicks things out of the way to take aim corner to corner… BULL’S HORNS! Cover, Rush wins!
Winner: Rush, by pinfall
The undefeated Toro Blanco is on a roll, and as we know, he makes his intentions known to Matt Taven and all of ROH. When and where will Rush and Taven meet in the ring for a title match?
Backstage interview with Jonathan Gresham.
Quinn asks him about the match alongside Jay Lethal against LifeBlood. How does Gresham feel about that match? Gresham suggests she ask Lethal about that. With that said, we cut away to break. Is this a sign to the side of the Octopus we’ll be seeing tonight?
Backstage interview with Jay Lethal.
Quinn did as Gresham suggested and she talks with Lethal about the match later on. Lethal is sure Greham is worried. What is at stake is so important. They want to be ROH World Tag Team Champions, it’s a title Lethal hasn’t had. And just like every great tag team, they’ve had speed bumps, but they’re past that. They have tunnel vision, and Lethal promises they will do something they’ve never done yet and win those tag team titles! The Franchise Player is confident, but will it be that easy against LifeBlood?
ROH takes a closer look at Top Prospect Tournament participants, Dante Caballero and Joe Keys.
Caballero is from the Island of Paradise, but he sails into ROH to take advantage of a golden opportunity. He will take everything and give nothing back. No matter who it is in his way, he will show them all that he can get the job done. On the other side, the sensual and head-turning Joe Keys, with his perfect hair and perfect physique, is the man Fabio wishes he was. The best looking Top Prospect has come. The tournament will be hot thanks to him. Eight men, one winner, and that winner is right here. But who backs up their words with actions in the opening match of this year’s tournament?
2019 Top Prospect Tournament Opening Round: Dante Caballero VS Joe Keys!
These two used to be tag team partners in the Future of Honor, but now that they both have a chance to be a contender, that partnership means nothing. Who comes away one step closer to a shot at the ROH World Television Championship?
This full match is on ROH YouTube, but ROH TV jumps to Keys firing up and Caballero asking his old friend for mercy. Caballero says he’s sorry as he backs into a corner. But Keys throws his wrist tape at Caballero, then powers him up top. Keys throws big hands and European Uppercuts, and even a CHOP! Keys climbs up but Caballero fights back. Caballero shoves Keys down but Keys comes back with a dropkick! Caballero wobbles and Keys climbs up, to SUPERPLEX! But the arm gives out, and Keys takes the worst of the fall! Caballero’s right on Keys with a crossface! Keys endures, reaches for ropes, but taps out! Caballero wins!
Winner: Dante Caballero, by submission; advances to the semifinals
Caballero turns the tables on Keys and takes his place in the Final Four! Will Caballero do as he promised and get the job done?
ROH relives the recent incidents between The Bouncers and The Kingdom.
It was Manhattan Mayhem when “Brawler” Brian Milonas climbed up top while The Beer City Bruiser held Shaheem Ali up. Milonas leaps for the Last Call leg drop! The Bouncers would win, but the Kingdom would strike! Vinnie Marseglia and TK O’Ryan would SMACK away on The Bouncers! This would all be to avenge the loss to them and Jay Lethal in a Six Man Tag!
After the attack was done, TK and Vinnie would sit in those very chairs, and Vinnie would smoke a big cigar and blow smoke right in Bruiser’s face. “You want to get sick with me, Bruiser?” He BURNS Bruiser’s chest with the cigar!! The Horror King is truly twisted, but the Bouncers wouldn’t leave it at this,
Cut to Summer Supercard in Toronto, and the Bouncers taunting The Kingdom from the crowd. The Kingdom would trash talk back, and then take Bruiser’s cigar to tear it up and throw it back at him. So Milonas would SMASH TK with his beer! The brawl would break out and Toronto would come alive! Fans chanted “Beer! Beer!” as security rushed out to break this out. Bruiser dared Vinnie to come back for more, but the Kingdom would retreat.
Cut to backstage as the Bouncers hunted down The Kingdom. “You just saw Toronto! You just went and made the drunk guys really, really angry!” If Vinnie wants to get sick, Bruiser’ll get sick! Milonas reminded The Kingdom that the Bouncers didn’t get here by just carrying somebody’s bags. The Bouncers will fight anywhere, anytime, to the ends of the Earth! The Bouncers vowed to be standing tall and drinking tall ones at the end of it.
But somewhere else in the arena, Vinnie laughed to himself. “Don’t you understand?” Don’t the Bouncers get that the stuff they’re doing is the stuff Vinnie likes? It makes Vinnie feel great that he is finally dragging the violence out of them. Because at first, all those two wanted to do was have fun and drink some beer. But now, there’s something different. A new side no one had seen before, but a side Vinnie is interested in. If the Bouncers want to have fun, let’s have fun. What kind of twisted playtime does Vinnie have in store for Bruiser and Brawler?
ROH throws back to Team IQ.
Ian and Quinn find the silver lining in this madness: all the new merch! The Bouncers have new shirts, The Kingdom have new shirts, Rush, Jay Lethal, so many of the ROH stars have something for fans to wear and represent! And don’t forget the ROH app for everything you’ll need! And that includes when, where and how you’ll get to watch the coming Global Wars Espectacular tour! ROH and CMLL will go head-to-head from September 6th to 8th!
ROH returns from break to more Ian and Quinn.
She isn’t sure if he’s noticed, but there seems to be tension brewing between Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham. They’re still teaming up tonight, but Ian does agree. He’s worried that while LifeBlood is united and even warming up together, the Franchise Player and Octopus aren’t even talking to each other. A lot of this does have to do with Gresham using underhanded tactics to beat Silas Young, Kenny King and a few others. Perhaps this isn’t paranoia after all. Will things come to a head tonight when they’re supposed to be aiming for tag titles?
Six Man Tag: Stuka Jr, Caristico & Soberano Jr VS Hechicero, Templario & Barbaro Cavernario!
CMLL was represented at Summer Supercard in this trios match, and the full match is also available on Honor Club. ROH TV jumps to Templario’s tilt-o-whirl being denied by Stuka Jr. Stuka wrenches and hammerlocks Templario to a DDT! Cover, but Hechicero breaks it up. Hechi whips but Stuka reverses and jumps, but Hechi gets the leg to bring Stuka down! And then around to a Bow ‘n’ Arrow! Stuka endures the stretch and slips out, then spins things around. Stuka whips and gets Hechi for a Stuka Especial tilt-o-whirl backbreaker! Hechicero is in the drop zone and Stuka climbs up, falling splash! But he gets caught into Hechicero’s incredible combination of Cloverleaf and Butterfly stretch! Stuka is stuck but Soberano kicks the hold apart!
Soberano runs and tilt-o-whirls to a wheelbarrow and arm-drag! Hechi bails out, Soberano seesm Templario returning. Stuka runs in to monkey flip Templario down, then he hurries to a corner. Stuka climbs, as does Soberano! Stuka LEAPS to splash down on Hechicero! Soberano LEAPS to SUPER tornillo down on Templario! Toronto fires up for this lucha libre insanity, but now Barbaro and Caristico are left. Barbaro dodges Caristico but runs into a boot. He automatically does the worm? And then gets Caristico with a SPINEBUSTER! Barbaro runs, springboard splash gets boots! Caristico covers, TWO! Caristico drags Barbaro to a drop zone then climbs up. Caristico moonsaults, but also gets boots! Barbaro covers, TWO!!
Caristico survives and Barbaro is shocked! But Barbaro drags Caristico over to a drop zone and fires up as he climbs. But Caristico springs up to SUPER SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Caristico can’t believe Barbaro wins! Things speed up, tilt-o-whirl takedown to a crossface! Barbaro taps, Caristico and team wins!
Winners: Caristico, Stuka Jr & Soberano Jr, Caristico pinning

Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham VS LifeBlood!
Mark Haskins and Bandido, alongside Tracy Williams, are soon to face Villain Enterprises for the ROH World Six Man Tag titles, but that doesn’t mean they’ll stop there.

Bandido and Lethal stare down and fans are dueling. Bandido and Lethal circle and as the tension mounts, tie up. Lethal powers Bandido back but Bandido puts Lethal against ropes.

ROH returns once more, and Lethal brawls with Bandido. They trade forearms, and Bandido wobbles only to come back with more! Bandido runs but Gresham dumps him out! The Octopus is getting sneaky again but Lethal is not having it. Gresham just ignores his scolding and tags in. Gresham rams Bandido into barriers, then the apron! Then the apron again, and again! Gresham throws the security guard out of his chair, to take it for his own! Gresham puts Bandido on the apron, and takes aim with the chair!

Mr. Overkill and the gunslinger luchador take out a high caliber team, and make the former ROH World Champion tap out! Will this lead to even more gold in ROH for this rising faction?
ROH hears from Matt Taven.
“PCO. Mark Haskins. Flip Gordon. Tracy Williams. Jeff Cobb. Jay Lethal. Kenny King. And now… Oh, one of my personal favorites, Alex Shelley.” What do all those great wrestlers have in common? They all have fallen to The King. The ROH World Championship, like it or not, stays with Matt Taven! And he hasn’t forgotten what Rush did to him in their days together in CMLL! Taven’s hair looks like this because of Rush! But that was in Rush’s home turf. ROH is Taven’s Kingdom. And Taven has waited a long, long time for revenge. Taven vows to put Rush at the very end of the list, with a line underneath it, “because it will be the most joyous victory of them all.” Rush and ALL of ROH will have to get used to this title being on this waist. Why? Because the greatest ROH World Champion of all time is Matt Taven. Will this royal decree survive an encounter with El Toro Blanco?
I don’t to take anything away from the match we got to see in full, or the parts we got from the other matches, or what ROH is trying to do in getting fans all caught up with all these huge events through just the TV airings, but ROH is clearly struggling if this is how they’re going to be going. I knew Rush would be next to challenge Matt Taven, but I don’t think we needed to waste time watching only part of a match where Rush beats Dalton Castle. Give that time to the Top Prospect Tournament so we get all of the only nine minute match that ROH put on their YouTube beforehand anyway. For that matter, the entire opening round is there, and in total, it is only 39 minutes. This is a bad sign that the tradition isn’t big enough to get attention on TV anymore. It’s probably why Jeff Cobb was used to literally cancel the tournament with his interruptions last year.
The bit of the CMLL trios match we got was a lot of fun. In similar fashion, why didn’t we get all of that match? It was only 17 minutes, and I’m pretty sure cutting out Rush VS Castle would’ve given us time for that. At the same time, things must not have worked out for Summer Supercard if we’re getting even this much from it. The recap of Bouncers and Kingdom from Manhattan Mayhem and then Summer Supercard at least made for good story. I feel like Bouncers VS Kingdom in No Disqualifications or a Street Fight would be really good to push that “sick” side they’re bringing out. Then the one good thing on tonight’s episode was the main event tag match. I like that Gresham was about to throw away the match by using that chair, it shows he’s growing frustrated being a Face when he wants to go Heel so bad. Surprisingly, this match was only 11 minutes for Summer Supercard but commercials sure helped stretch that out. Lethal VS Gresham in a grudge match has to be coming, and that will be a great one, too.
My Score: 7.5/10

Archer staggers about, Kingston elbows him on the back then goes after the leg. Kingston chokes Archer on ropes, lets off as the ref counts, then stalks Archer to another corner for kidney shots!

Archer shakes out the cobwebs but Kingston runs, but Archer DERAILS him! Fans fire up while Kingston sits up in a daze.
Archer stalks Kingston, drags him up by his ears, then brings him around to CLUB him. Kingston clings to Archer’s legs but Archer brings him up to CHOP him down! Fans want that “One More Time!” and Archer drags Kingston up to CHOP him again! Kingston flops down and Archer seethes as he drags him back up.

Kingston scrambles into the ring, Archer pursues and brings him up in a full nelson, for a SLAM! Archer says he’s just getting started with Kingston, and he goes to a corner! Archer grins at the camera before hopping down and putting Kingston in the drop zone. Archer goes up, spinning VADER BOMB! Cover, ONE because Archer lets off! Archer is a cat toying with his prey!
Archer drags Kingston up, Kingston breaks free but the back hand is blocked! Archer choke grips, Kingston kicks low and dropkicks legs out. Kingston runs to FOREARM Archer down! Cover, TWO!

Will Kingston and his henchmen continue to wreak havoc on AEW?
Jon Moxley speaks.
“Okay, let me see if I’ve got this right. The Young Bucks are the tag team champions, and they’re friends with Kenny, but Kenny’s friends with The Goody Brothers, and they’re the tag team champions, too. So now they’re all friends? They’re all one big happy family? How is that going to work? Is that going to work?” No it’s not. The Elite is like The Young & The Restless. And then there’s Death Triangle, PAC & The Lucha Brothers, who don’t like any part of The Elite. They don’t even like Moxley, because they used to be friends with Kingston who has beef with Mox. But now Moxley has to team with them at Beach Break?
Moxley is a simple guy. Cold beer, hot coffee, room temperature water and sex in the morning because it’s a great way to start the day. The only person you can trust is number one, so he only trusts his two hands. But Moxley loves Six Man Tags, so saddle up, compadres. This’ll be fun! Gang warfare! Moxley doesn’t know what happens at Beach Break, but it’ll be wild~! Incendiary ingredients on Dynamite, don’t blink or you’ll miss it.
Sting and Darby Allin speak.
The Icon says they’ll get on a first name basis right now. Taz, Brian, Ricky, since they’ll be in that Street Fight at Revolution, and since Team Taz loves to throw out false accusations, Sting will say their feelings are hurt. They called these two hoodlums? Really? Darby is a bit of a hoodlum, yes, but in the streets, it doesn’t matter if you play it clean or dirty. It’s all about survival! Darby chucks his skateboard through a window, and admits he is a hoodlum, no different from Sting. Sting uses the baseball bat to smash up the rest of the window! Sting admits it, too. Revolution, Street Fight, showtime.
Y2MJF w/ The Inner Circle VS The Varsity Blondes!
There’s a lot of history to this match, even before things in AEW. But Chris Jericho won’t hold back on Brian Pillman Jr. over it, and he expects nothing less from Pillman Jr. in return. But will that mean the first 2v2 outing of Le Demo God and the Salt of the Earth won’t be a success?
Jericho revels in the fans singing Judas for him, the teams sort out, and MJF wants to speak first. MJF wants to talk with Sammy Guevara later, and then he says is that Griff? Look at Goldilocks here. Last time they met, MJF embarrassed Griff on live television. So let’s just skip ahead to where Griff loses, okay? NOPE! Griff DECKS MJF, keeps him in the ring, then rains down more fists! MJF scrambles away, Wardlow keeps him away from Griff, but Griff gets around to get back in. MJF dodges but Griff BOOTS him down!

Fans fire up as BPJ whips, Jericho reveres and MJF gets a cheap shot in! Jericho DECKS BPJ then tags in MJF!
AEW goes picture in picture as MJF CLAWS BPJ and tells Griff up his! MJF digs his fingers into BPJ’s face but lets off as the ref reprimands.

“Here we go again!” Kenny Omega is taking liberties, acting like ‘Billy Big Bollocks,” acting like he owns the place and owns this business. He has the “clown” Callis and the Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions, while manipulating some and blindsiding others. SO at Beach Break, bring the Good Brothers, because Pac and Rey Fenix will show you what brotherhood is! You hit them, they hit you back! Time to face the consequences!
AEW shares Shaq’s message from the AEW Dynamite Awards on TNT.
“Cody Rhodes, you little punk. You want to battle, you just name the time and the day. I’ll be there.” Cody looks like a little girl with that blonde hair. Shaq suggests we do this in March, aka Revolution. What will Cody say?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
To respond to Shaq’s comments right now, here’s Cody Rhodes! The American Nightmare goes to the ring, along with Coach Arn Anderson. Schiavone knows they want to respond to Shaq, but also to Jade Cargill from The Waiting Room. Cody says to respond to Shaq and Jade, he’d rather just give us the “pitch.” He’d like to say March 7th, AEW Revolution, it’d be himself and Brandi Rhodes VS Shaq & Jade, but life happens. He and Brandi are having a baby. “In these moments where I am rather confused and distracted,” Cody defers to The Coach!
And if we’re wondering how much of a coach Arn is, Arn chewed Cody out for taking Peter Avalon too easily last week. Arn has been right consistently for years, they talked with Tony Khan about where Cody fits on the Revolution card, so the floor is Arn’s. Arn says he wants to earn his money because he might contradict himself, so please be patient. But the fact is, Cody’s about to be a dad. That is right on the forefront of his mind, as it should be. That is the most important thing in his life.
But think about this: June 29th, 1985. What date is that to Cody? That was when Arn saw Dusty Rhodes crawl in the ring with Tully Blanchard, fight 30 minutes, then fly home in time to see the birth of Baby Cody. Now if Cody chooses March 7th, to jump in the Revolution, do it with eyes wide open, no regrets. But Arn will point out the obvious: there is a lot of time between the birthdate and the show. Doesn’t Cody want to be part of something? It’s hard to capture the public eye but he could do that with this match.
For 19 years, Shaq dominated the court as a world-class athlete. Jade, every time she walks in, she dominates that room. But the fact is, Arn’s seen something these last two weeks, something that can’t be measured or even rational to name. Arn wants Cody to see something. In steps RED VELVET! Velvet has had her own problems with Jade Cargill, and Arn hopes Cody sees the fire inside Velvet like what Cody has in him. Velvet gets the mic to stare down the camera and say she’s here because she is FED UP of getting attacked, watching Brandi get disrespected by a “big mouth coward” who knows Brandi can’t defend herself.
Everyone knows Cody would never lay a hand on a woman. But Velvet will! Velvet is about to stir that bitch-ass up! Fans like the sound of that! Arn says that’s what he meant! Then perhaps Jade and Shaq have the ball in their court! Are we still getting a huge mixed tag match for Revolution?
AEW issues the official invite to the Superbad Beach Break wedding!
Kip Sabian says “my heart is in my hands My head is in the clouds. My feet have left the ground. And my life, our life, is turning around.” Penelope Ford is so excited to marry this handsome man, the man of her dreams, the best kisser. So they cordially invite us to watch their wedding, with Miro as The Best Man, and of course “Charles” Taylor the butler will be there! Surely a wedding on a wrestling program will go smoothly, right?

The Cowboy takes on the debuting “Hollywood Hunk” as Hangman tries to shake off the awkward situation where he had to reject The Dark Order’s recruitment proposal. Will he be able to focus against this hungry and determined wrestler?

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall
Hardy applauds then goes up to the ramp. Hangman sees Hardy turn to leave but invites him into the ring. Tony Schiavone hurries over to see what this is about. Hardy didn’t want to create a scene, but the reason he came out was to be in Hangman’s corner and let him know he supports Hangman. Hardy has been a bit concerned, Hangman seems lost and conflicted. That’s understandable. Hardy was part of Stadium Stampede, he knows that Hangman got burned by The Elite and he didn’t deserve it. The Dark Order wants Hangman to join and that’s just awkward.
Hardy doesn’t want anything from Hangman, just to let him know that Hangman is a good person who deserves to be happy. Hardy needed to say that and Hangman needed to hear it. Hangman is dressing alone in the hallway near catering. Hardy has a huge dressing room with plenty of space. Hangman is more than welcome to join him there, no strings attached. Hardy lets Hangman think that over, what will Hangman’s answer be?
Jungle Boy w/ Jurassic Express VS Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler & Tully Blanchard!
Though Marko Stunt, Luchasaurus and the rest of FTR are all ringside, things will be a little different than usual. To make sure Cash and Tully don’t interfere, they will be handcuffed not just to each other, but to Luchasaurus! Will the wrestling dinosaur be able to keep things fair and square?

MJF finds Sammy Guevara backstage.
He just wants a moment, and says he did NOT tell Wardlow to get involved in last week’s Triple Threat Tag. Wardlow is literally the worst employee MJF has ever had, he docked Wardlow’s pay. No money for War Dog, and MJF promises that it’ll never happen again. Sammy asks if MJF is done. Does MJF think Sammy is stupid? Sammy sees what’s going on, even though MJF has everyone else fooled. Congratulations, though, on being a great manipulator. One of the best, really. Round of applause! Hats off to MJF. But Sammy sees what MJF is up to. Is that so? Yes, it is.
MJF asks Sammy if he really wants to play it this way. Sammy isn’t playing. The two stare down, but MJF backs away. Will the differences between these two be what tears The Inner Circle apart?
AEW sets the field for the Beach Break Tag Team Battle Royal!
Top Flight, Private Party, Jurassic Express, FTR, The Acclaimed, The Dark Order’s Evil Uno & Stu Grayson, and ALL THREE duos within The Inner Circle, are in the match for a shot at the titles at Revolution!

AEW also sets some of the Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament First Round matches!
NWA Women’s World Champion, Serena Deeb, takes on the returning and inaugural AEW Women’s Champion, Riho! What a powerful first match in a surely star-studded bracket! Who else from both the United States and Japan will be competing for a shot at Hikaru Shida?
Backstage interview with “The Elite!”
Dasha knows it has been five YEARS since these four have been in a ring together, how are they feeling? Karl Anderson says for the first time in those five years, it is a “full blown Bullet Club Party!” Tonight, they take out the Dark Order and what else? #BigLG says if we’re gonna Biz Cliz, then they gotta Biz Cliz softly! Gyrate! Then next week at Beach Break, they BEAT UP REY FENIX! BEAT UP PAC! And their favorite thing ever, BEAT UP JON MOXLEY! So pumped up! Are the Bucks down? Oh yeah, just as pumped, just as jazzed, but uh… Just as long as “that mark stooge, Creepy Uncle Don” doesn’t get involved.
Whoa, c’mon, now, Young Bizzles, you gotta understand. Relax about Donaconda. Last week, they and Kenny took out Pentagon for them! That was all Don’s idea. Well no one asked you guys to do that! But now Kenny Omega himself walks in, and he high fives the Good Brothers. Is he interrupting something? Sorta. Well maybe they need to talk about something later. Callis comes by with a BIG bandage on his face! What is that? Hey, we all know the Bucks assaulted him- No they did not! Take that off! Omega gets the Bucks to leave Callis alone and the music hits, it’s time for the main event!
8 Man Tag: The Young Bucks & The Good Brothers VS The Dark Order!
The AEW World and Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions are joining forces, but it’s not exactly a happy reunion of The Bullet Club. A lot of the tension and drama comes from the fact Don Callis is in Kenny Omega’s ear and trying to direct his life. Will Matt & Nick be able to work with Gallows & Anderson against Uno, Stu, Reynolds & Silver?
