LifeBlood VS Villain Enterprises!

Honor Club has the full match but ROH TV jumps to Mark Haskins shoving a bloody PCO off the top rope! Brody King runs over but gets an enziguri! Haskins climbs up but Brody CHOPS him back! Brody drags Haskins off the top into a Canadian rack, but Tracy Williams revives to BOOT! Haskins slips off Brody’s shoulder, then feeds him to Tracy, and helps Tracy get Brody up! Haskins adds a kick to the PILEDRIVER! Haskins goes at PCO while Tracy covers, but PCO shoves Haskins onto Tracy to break the cover! Atlanta fires up as PCO is the one man standing. PCO joins Haskins on the apron, but Haskins SUPERKICKS then fireman’s carries, for Shoulder Soldier Roll to the apron!!

Haskins and PCO are down but Tracy throws forearms on Brody. Tracy CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! He throws off his elbow pad to run, Flip Gordon is late to tripping him up, and Tracy clotheslines Brody! But Brody stays standing! Tracy runs again, this time Flip gets Tracy with the chair to the back! Brody drags Tracy up, Canadian rack, GONZO BOMB! Cover, Villain Enterprises wins!

Winners: Villain Enterprises, Brody King pinning

The spotlight belongs to Villain Enterprises! Scurll beat Bandido and his “employees” beat Tracy and Haskins, are they going to turn the tide in the war?

 

ROH throws it to Ian Riccaboni and Quinn McKay.

Death Before Dishonor is coming, and something wicked this way comes with it. Vinny Marseglia has been torturing the Bouncers, Brian Milonas and Beer City Bruiser, both physically and mentally. Most notably, Vinny burned Bruiser with his own cigar! That leads to tonight’s ROH TV exclusive!

Vinny Marseglia VS Beer City Bruiser!

TK O’Ryan and Brian Milonas are conspicuously absent, so neither man will have anyone watching their backs. But BCB could still use someone, because the moment he’s on the apron, Vinny dropkicks him off! BCB gets up but Vinny DIVES! Direct hit and the ref just rings the bell. Both men brawl and BCB CHOPS! Vinny runs off but BCB pursues. They keep brawling with big hands, and BCB CHOPS again! Vinny is stinging but BCB whips him into barriers! Fans fire up for Bruiser as he goes to the apron. BCB CANNONBALLS, but misses! Vinny goes to the apron and leaps, but into BCB’s hand! Apron choke slam! Vinny writhes as fans fire up with chants of “BEER! BEER!”

BCB goes to the crowd and asks fans to please move aside. They do, and BCB is planning something crazy. BCB hops up on chairs, and has ROH security help prop him up on the railing. The Bruiser FLIES over commentary! Vinny gets clear but the rest of ROH security gets wiped out!! Atlanta is thunderous for “ROH! ROH!” as Vinny gets back on the apron to boot Bruiser down! Vinny returns to the ring to revel in it all as we go to break.

ROH returns and BCB squashes Vinny in a corner! Vinny is down and fans fire up as BCB climbs! Beer City Bomb FLOPS! Vinny gets up and runs side to side for a big forearm smash, and then another! Vinny bumps BCB on buckles and manages a Side Effect! Cover, ONE, but Vinny rains down fists. Vinny laughs and stomps BCB. “You wanna fight me, huh, Bruiser?” Vinny mocks BCB, saying someone needs to get him a beer. BCB punches back but Vinny kicks a leg out to basement shotgun dropkick BCB down. Cover, TWO! Vinny climbs up top but BCB stops him with a big uppercut! BCB climbs up to join Vinny now, and clubs away. Vinny hits back and manages to gourd buster BCB down! Redrum swanton! Cover, TWO!! Vinny is furious but there are fans that still cheer the Horror King.

Vinny taunts BCB, but BCB bites his fingers! But again, BCB (supposedly) can’t bite, he ain’t got no teef! But Vinny BOOTS BCB to then run, into BCB’s big right hand! Vinny rebounds to hit back, then he whips. BCB reverses to then run in, but Vinny knees back. Vinny tilt-o-whirls but BCB blocks the leg sweep. Vinny spins BCB, underhooks, but BCB powers out, to get Vinny in the Beer City DDT! Cover, TWO!! BCB can’t believe his deep DDT didn’t work, and Vinny gets to a corner. BCB runs in and hits a big uppercut! Fans cheer as BCB goes after Vinny in a corner. BCB rains down hands but the ref backs him up. Vinny exposes a buckle in this time! Then Vinny uses the ref as a shield to sucker BCB in, and he bounces BCB off the bare buckle! Then, Sliced Bread! Cover, Vinny wins!

Winner: Vinny Marseglia, by pinfall

And the wicked wins with wicked ways. But will this be the end of their grudge?

 

Death Before Dishonor begins a huge tournament!

Eight of the best wrestlers in ROH today will battle in a single elimination tournament to determine the next #1 contender to Matt Taven’s ROH World Championship. This will all culminate at Final Battle 2019! Mark Haskins, Colt Cabana, Kenny King, Bandido, Dalton Castle, Marty Scurll, PCO, and Jay Lethal have all had an incredible 2019, but whose year will get even better when they face Matt Taven for the ROH World title?

 

Brian Milonas is down!

And it was TK O’Ryan who attacked! “What do you think of that, fat boy!?” TK is scaring the Future of Honor wrestlers but medics and security get TK out of there. Will the Kingdom make sure the Bouncers never have another beer in their careers?

 

ROH throws it back to Team IQ.

Ian and Quinn see just why Milonas couldn’t support Bruiser tonight. Will things only escalate further? Meanwhile, the Allure have been heading right for the Women of Honor World Championship, and we throw it to Honor For All’s #1 contender’s match.

 

WOH World Championship #1 Contender’s Four Corner Survival: Sumie Sakai VS Jenny Rose VS Damaris Dawkins VS Angelina Love w/ Mandy Leon!

Before this match begins, Angelina addresses her opponents, saying there is a problem here.

It isn’t just with how her opponents look right now. Sumie takes a snooze as Angelina goes on about how ROH won’t recognize her as the #1 contender already. She pinned the champion, Kelly Klein, at Best in the World. Sumie, wake up! Angelina beat Sumie, a former champion, at Center Stage, so why is she even in here? And Angelina doesn’t need to beat Jenny or Dawkins, so bye~! But despite the attitude, Dwakins and Jenny chase the Allure down! The American Joshi and the West Philly fighter won’t let these two leave without a fight!

This match is in full on Honor Club, but ROH jumps to the action as Sumie climbs up. Fans rally as Sumie missile dropkicks Dawkins down! Jenny runs in to attack and Perfect Plex to a cover! Dawkins breaks it in time, but Jenny stomps Sumie into a headscissor vice. Dawkins gets Jenny in a headscissor vice of her own! But Angelina finally returns to get Dawkins with hers! It is a headscissor centipede! Sumie, Jenny and Dawkins all endure so Angelina stomps each of them in turn. Cover on Sumie, TWO! Cover on Dawkins, TWO! Angelina drags Sumie up but Sumie fires forearms. Sumie whips but Mandy bails Angelina out. Sumie goes after Dawkins but Dawkins fires back to a Northern Lights! Bridge but Jenny breaks it!

Jenny drags Dawkins up in a waistlock, spins her around, urenage! Cover, but Sumie somersaults through it! Sumie stomps Jenny but Angelina is lurking with a chair. Sumie dragon sleepers, Smash Mouth on Jenny! Cover, but Dawkins breaks it! Dawkins throws big forearms and chops, then runs, but into Sumie’s back elbow! Sumie gets Dawkins in a dragon sleeper, but Angelina makes a move with that chair! The ref stops her, but this allows Mandy to distract and hairspray Sumie AGAIN! Angelina returns and aims at Dawkins, Botox Injection! Cover, Angelina wins!

Winner: Angelina Love, by pinfall; NEW #1 Contender to the WOH World Championship

And once again, the Exotic Goddess helps out one of the Beautiful People to cheat the competition.

Backstage interview with The Allure.

Quinn talks with Angelina and Mandy, but they keep teasing her. Tonight’s match was a stolen victory, but Angelina takes offense. Since Quinn is so smart, what else does she think Angelina needs to do to prove herself? Did she not get the pin? She did, but Quinn took note of how the hairspray came into play. Get your eyes checked, Quinn. The only spray is in their hair already. So get those ugly glasses checked before making accusations towards people you don’t want to mess with! Messing with little Quinn McKay aside, will Angelina and Mandy both learn that they won’t be able to get one over on Kelly Klein?

 

Joe Hendry makes things better~!

It’s PSN, the Prestigious Shopping Network! And Joe Hendry presents his brand new Joe Hendry World Champ shirt! It is on sale at ROH’s official shop for a “solid gold price” of just $24.99. Now, Hendry’s (reluctant) tag team partner, Dalton Castle, retweeted the design, calling it #Trash. At first, that really hurts, but it’s not because Castle is upset at being second best now, it’s not that Castle dislikes Hendry. Castle said that because he’s upset Hendry didn’t get him one! Hendry feels so bad about that, here’s a brand new Castle shirt! Look at that great comic sans font for “2nd best! dalton castle” the Pigeon. That’s amazing craftsmanship. And don’t worry, Hendry paid for this design himself.

Hendry tells Castle that this shirt is a statement of intent. Hendry hasn’t been world champ, but he isn’t here to just whine and beg. Hendry is here to change the world, and that starts by believing he’s already world champ! This shirt is for those who need to believe in themselves, who need to stand up and stop letting people push them around! Go get this shirt, and go seize the day!

 

ROH replays Matt Taven’s words at the end of Summer Supercard.

“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 back to Team IQ.

Rush has not been pinned or submitted, but Matt Taven owes him payback for the hair match that shaved Taven bald. But finally, they will have it out at Death Before Dishonor! Who walks out of Las Vegas having hit the jackpot while the other busts?

And this just in, given the extent of that cut over PCO’s eye from the Center Stage match, as well as other health concerns, he cannot join his fellow Villain Enterprises “employees” in the next chapter of their war with LifeBlood. Marty Scurll and Brody King will battle Mark Haskins and Bandido. But to raise the ante just in time for Death Before Dishonor, the winners will move on to face The Briscoes for the ROH World Tag Team Championships in Las Vegas!

 

ROH World Tag Team Championship #1 Contenders Match: LifeBlood VS Villain Enterprises!

A bit of misfortune turns into a golden opportunity for both teams! What was to be the long-awaited Six Man Tag Team Championship match has now turned into a chance at a match with #DemBoys! Will Scurll and Brody win one for PCO? Or will Overkill and the Most Wanted be singing Viva Las Vegas?

ROH returns as Bandido and Scurll start. They had their dream singles match just the event before, so that’s why Scurll won’t shake Bandido’s hand. He tags out to Brody and fans cheer. Bandido and Brody circle as fans rally up. They tie up, and Brody lifts Bandido up high to toss him to ropes! Fans cheer that feat of strength, but Bandido keeps his cool. Bandido gets up and gets the fans cheering “Lucha! Lucha!” Bandido and Brody go, and Bandido wants a single leg takedown, but Brody is too big to be toppled over. Brody says, “Try harder, (beeeep)!” then he pie faces Bandido. Fans boo but Bandido stomps Brody’s foot! Then Bandido trips Brody with that takedown. Things speed up and Brody dodges Bandido’s handspring.

Things keep moving, Bandido hurdles but Brody leaps. Bandido dodges to huricanrana but Brody handsprings through! Brody runs at Bandido and manages to huricanrana the luchador!? Fans are thunderous for that freakish feat of agility! But Bandido gets up to sweep the legs, cover, ONE! Brody sweeps, covers, ONE, and both men dropkick! Those cancel out, and both men handspring back up. Brody wants to shake hands, Bandido accepts, and then Scurll clobbers Bandido from behind! Haskins runs out and fires off on Scurll and Brody! Haskins CHOPS Scurll, kicks Brody, repeat! Scurll deflects a kick but it goes into Brody’s gut! Haskins waistlocks but Scurll standing switches. Brody runs in but Haskins escapes, Brody clotheslines Scurll!

Haskins dropkicks Brody’s legs out and fires up with the fans. Scurll runs in but his huricanrana is blocked! Haskins sets Scurll on top of Brody, it’s a Boston Crab and Camel Clutch fusion! Bandido adds on to the Boston Camel with a mule kick to Brody’s face! And then a mule kick to Scurll’s face! Fans are thunderous as LifeBlood stands tall! Tag to Haskins, and LifeBlood has Brody up. They try but can’t double suplex the massive man, but Brody double suplexes them! Brody watches Bandido and Haskins stand and runs in, but they double hip toss Brody onto ropes, to rebound him for a facebuster! Double basement dropkicks, cover, ONE! Haskins kicks Brody while he’s down and then stomps the arm. Haskins keeps on Brody’s arm but Brody fights his way up. Brody whips Haskins but Haskins dodges, only to get a cheap shot from Scurll. Haskins hits back, but then Brody DECKS Haskins! Haskins flops out and Scurll hits Bandido. Scurll goes to the apron, SUPERKICK! Fans fire up while Scurll flaps his wings, and we go to break!

ROH returns once again, and Brody tags Scurll. Brody scoop slams Haskins then runs, Scurll helps him get air for the splash! But Scurll has to cover, TWO! Scurll talks trash to Bandido but fans rally for Haskins. Haskins crawls around but Scurll stands between him and Bandido. Scurll stomps the fingers, then grabs them, and we know what that means! Scurll SNAPS Haskins’ fingers! Haskins works to reset the fingers while fans cheer “Woop Woop!” Scurll calls for it, and fans fire up again! Scurll encourages them to get louder, and then he does his dance, “CHICKEN WING!” Calf kick from Haskins! Both men are down but Haskins crawls for the corner. Scurll slowly stirs and fans rally up. Scurll grabs Haskins’ foot but Hsakins shoves him away. Hot tag to Bandido!

Bandido slingshots, springboards, tornillo! Scurll rebounds into a tilt-o-whirl backbreaker! Brody runs in but gets buckles. Brody boots Bandido, hops up, but Bandido manages to catch and roll Brody to the mat, for a wrench and a whip. Brody reverses but Bandido shotgun dropkicks! Haskins returns and LifeBlood builds speed, to DOUBLE DIVE! Direct hit on both Scurll and Brody! Bandido gets Scurll in and Haskins has him for a running Falcon Arrow! Bandido is up top, FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Scurll survives and LifeBlood is shocked! Scurll gets to ropes but Bandido runs, but falls for 52 Fake Out! Scurll sucker punches Haskins and tags in Brody. Brody whips Scurll in but Bandido puts him on the apron. Only to get the kick clothesline combo! Brody holds Bandido, Scurll slingshots over, sunset flip German Suplex! Cover, TWO!! Bandido still lives and so does LifeBLood!

Scurll tags in, Brody feeds Bandido to him. Scurll puts on out in a shout out to some old pals, POWERBOMB! Catapult into Brody’s BIG right forearm! Then with Bandido bent back on Scurll’s knees, Brody adds the senton! Cover, but Haskins breaks it! Brody goes to throw Haskins out but Haskins stops himself and fires strikes back on Brody. Haskins kicks but gets caught, Brody CHOPS Haskins down! Bandido mule kicks then runs, to crucifix DRIVER! Bandido BOOTS Scurll then runs, into a rolling elbow! Half ‘n’ Half! Haskins gives Scurll his own 52 Fake Out JAB! All four men are down, and we go to one more break!

ROH returns one more time, and all four men are stirring. Brody helps get Scurll to the corner and he tags in. Brody runs but Haskins dumps him out. Haskins goes to the apron, BIG Penalty Kick! Scurll runs over but Haskins hits him away. Bandido scoops Scurll, torture rack to X-Knee! Big kick from Haskins, then Bandido holds Scurll up while tagging Haskins in. Bandido holds Scurll out for Haskins’ flying stomps! Stomp Boy hits, cover, TWO!? Scurll survives and shocks Haskins. Fans rally up both ways as Haskins tells Scurll to watch him. Haskins has Scurll’s fingers, and SNAPS them in return! Then he wants the Sharpshooter, but Scurll kicks him away. Haskins jackknife rolls and has Scurll in the fireman’s carry! Scurll escapes and shoves Haskins into Bandido! CHICKEN WING!!

Haskins resists, reaches, pries at the hold, but Bandido rises. Haskins rolls over to a cover, TWO! Jackknife roll, Shoulder Soldier Roll! Cover, but Brody breaks it! Brody decks Bandido, then helps Scurll up again. Brody drags Haskins up for a Canadian rack but Bandido saves Haskins. LifeBlood shoves Brody into Scurll, then clothesline Brody out! Scurll is alone for the 21 PLEX!! Haskinsgets the Sharpshooter! Bandido FLIES out onto Brody! Haskins pulls back deep!! Scurll taps, LifeBlood wins!!

Winners: LifeBlood, Haskins by submission; NEW #1 Contenders to the ROH World Tag Team Championships

While the war is not over, this win means so much for LifeBlood! Haskins and Bandido will go against Jay and Mark Briscoe, but will they be tough enough to take those ROH World Tag Team Championships away from the baddest team on the whole damn planet?

 

Rush speaks!

“Ring of Honor. This is the time that I told everybody I will be the next champion!” Las Vegas, Death Before Dishonor, Matt Taven will face El Toro Blanco! Nothing happens unless Rush says so! Will Rush be the man to finally end Matt Taven’s reign of terror?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Given ROH’s recent format of highlighting some matches and giving us the full version of others, this time it actually worked out. This being the go-home to Death Before Dishonor, it worked to summarize some of the stories and get TV viewers caught up. We got a solid match out of Vinny and BCB, though they should’ve played TK’s “attack” on Brian Milonas before, since commentary basically gave it away. Seems some of that “left hand not knowing what right hand” stuff is still lingering. All ROH needs is some quality assurance to make sure they arranged things to fit how it was booked. What we got of the WOH Fatal 4 Way was alright. Damaris Dawkins seems to have the natural athleticism enough to keep up with the veterans, but of course The Allure cheats to win as the biggest Heels in the division right now. I would hope Kelly Klein gets an ally to counter Mandy’s presence. Maria Manic hasn’t been around lately, maybe she’ll reappear to chase Mandy off so that Angelina is all alone. Plus, Maria needs to circle back into this to also get herself a title shot.

The story of this episode was clearly the feud of LifeBlood and Villain Enterprises. We got a portion of their Center Stage tag match, the same night Scurll VS Bandido 1v1 happened. Given Villain Enterprises won both tag and singles match, I wonder if that meant LifeBlood was meant to win the Six Man titles the next night. LifeBlood did win in their awesome substitute tag match when PCO couldn’t compete, so to make up for not being Six Man champs, they’re getting a shot at the World Tag titles. I feel like Briscoes still have to win that, LifeBlood isn’t at the level of beating a team as good as that yet. Plus, that Six Man Tag match has to be coming back around at another event down the line. When LifeBlood wins those Six Man titles, then maybe we can talk the two-man tag titles.

My Score: 8.3/10

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fans are thunderous as Caster puts Blade in! Bowens fires up, THE ARRIVAL! The MIC DROP!! Cover, The Acclaimed win!!

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Firm.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

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

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

 

Lee Moriarty w/ The Firm VS Fuego Del Sol!

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

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

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

Winner: Lee Moriarty, by submission

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

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page & The Dark Order.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Jamie Hayter, by pinfall

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

 

Wardlow and Samoa Joe speak.

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

 

Ryan Nemeth is in the ring.

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

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

 

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

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

 

AEW looks at Jon Moxley VS Hangman Page.

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

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

 

Mark Henry talks with tonight’s main eventers.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Battle of the Belts 4!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
