PLAY BY PLAY

Full Gear has come and gone, but what are its after effects?

Brandi Rhodes and Awesome Kong are collecting trophies in the form of locks of hair. The #ProudNPowerful Ortiz & Santana won the battle but have sparked a war with the Young Bucks. Hangman did that #CowboyShit and Shawn Spears had Tully Blanchard help him screw the Bad Boy over. The tag titles were on the line in the biggest first defense yet, and the inaugural champions are still the champions! And they’re at full power with the Fallen Angel back in action! The student surpassed her teacher as Riho retained, but then the American Nightmare ended up living a nightmare as he busts himself open and is betrayed by a best friend. And while Moxley VS Omega will never count on paper, it will never be forgotten in the minds of those that witnessed it. But now, we witness the next chapter for AEW Dynamite, starting tonight!

 

AEW follows Kenny Omega.

The Best Bout Machine is cut up and banged up from the vicious and unsanctioned match with the madman, Jon Moxley. After only a few days, he’s still stinging from the mouse traps, broken glass and barbed wire. The black eye from the hardwood flop is fine, but the AEW team tell him to just take the week off so he can come back next week. Wait, how did Moxley do with his check-in? He was beat up, too, but managed to be cleared. Oh, okay. Omega keeps his cool in front of Michael Nakazawa and Riho, but surely that must sting worst of all. Will the Cleaner be able to dust himself off and be back in action with another week of rest?

 

Jon Moxley VS Michael Nakazawa!

Speaking of the Death Rider, there is truly no rest for the wicked, and that’s the way this lunatic likes it! And wouldn’t you know? He’s up against Nakazawa! Will Nakazawa test just how tough Moxley really is here tonight in Nashville?

But even before the bell, Nakazawa brings out the body oil! Moxley is intrigued as Nakazawa throws the bottle away! The bell rings and Nakazawa is serious as he throws furious forearms at Mox! Nakazawa CHOPS and forearms and runs, into a LARIAT! Moxley finally takes off the vest to then watch Nakazawa get up. He hits Nakazawa with a big forearm smash and then another, and Nakazawa sits down. Moxley drags Nakazawa up to climb up and get in his face. The referee reprimands Moxley but Moxley scares him off. Moxley whips Nakazawa corner to corner and then runs in, for a boot. He runs back in but gets an elbow, Nakazawa runs into PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

Moxley bows to Nakazawa to show it was nothing personal. Will the Death Rider keep rolling towards the top of the rankings? Moxley gets a mic to say, “That one counts, right?” Moxley is a lot of things, but he is not a liar! He told us all exactly what was going to happen at Full Gear, and he delivered “as advertised.” Kenny Omega will never be the same again! Moxley wants Omega to know he is “one radical son of a bitch,” and their personal differences aside, he does respect Omega. Omega had the balls no one else in AEW has the balls to do anymore. No one in that locker room will ever have the balls to step to Mox! But no one can run and hide forever. Moxley is going to scorch the earth and break one leg at a time until he is THE last man standing!

And however long it takes, if there’s anyone in AEW that wants to test themselves and confront their own mortality, let Mox know. Anyone listening right now, say the word, and Moxley will let them know where they are on the food chain! “Just do me a favor. If you’re going to step in the ring with me, kiss your loved ones good-bye and have an ambulance on standby.” And no matter what, don’t ask Moxley for an apology! Who will answer this open challenge of fire and wrath from the madman?

 

The Dark Order VS Jurassic Express!

Evil Uno and Stu Grayson were the number one seeds given that bye into the first round they won, yet they still lost the AEW World Tag Team Championship tournament. Meanwhile, Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt were impressive even in defeat. Which team starts turning their fortunes around with a win here tonight?

The teams sort out and “Babysaurus” Stunt starts with Stu. The bell rings but then Uno tags in suddenly. So Stunt just goes after Uno with furious hands! Uno shoves and swings on Stunt but misses. Stunt kicks back, dodges again, then runs. Jungle Boy tags in and Stunt arm-drags Uno! Stu tags in but runs into JB’s crucifix. ONE, but JB kips up to headlock. Stu headscissors but JB pops out. JB kicks but misses, Stu shoves but JB rebounds to headscissor Stu away! JB dropkicks Stu back down, and fans are fired up! Tag to Stunt, and Stunt whips Stu. Stu reverses and hops over Stunt to tilt-o-whirl, but Stunt headscissors! Tag to JB and the boys double whip. Stunt headscissors Stu onto the ropes, and gets a boost, Stunt in Motion cannonball against the ropes! Cover, TWO! JB keeps on Stu with a wrench and Stunt tags in. Stunt climbs up top to double stomp the arm!

Stunt headlocks Stu but Uno gets in. This distracts the ref as he shoves Stunt, but Stunt sees the “low bridge” coming from Uno. Stunt flosses on Uno! Only for Stu to waistlock. Tag to Uno, O’Conner roll, TWO into Uno’s BOOT! Uno drags Stunt up and slams, to then go to the corner, climb up fast, and SWANTON! Cover, TWO! Stunt survives but Uno drags him up by his hair. Tag to Stu and Uno gives Stunt a backbreaker. Stu takes aim, slingshot senton smashes Stunt on the apron! Fans boo as the Creepers do their salute. Stu isn’t paying attention to Stunt and Uno has to shout at him. Stu hurries to keep Stunt from Jungle Boy, and then he drags Stunt away. Tag to Uno, and the Dark Order mug Stunt with stomps.

Uno drags Stunt up and slaps him around but Stunt fires back! Uno CHOPS Stunt down to stop that. But Stunt gets up to fire off more back elbows. Uno grabs Stunt’s nose and YANKS the nostrils! JB protests but Uno drags Stunt away to tag Stu. The Dark Order take a bow while AEW goes picture in picture.

Stu drags Stunt up in a facelock and he suplexes Stunt up. He holds Stunt up for a count of 10 before dropping him! Cover, TWO! Stunt survives but Stu just laughs as he gets to hurt Stunt more. Stu dares Stunt to get up and do something, and Stunt fights with kicks! Stu drags Stunt up and hauls him into the Dark Order corner! Uno tags in while Stu puts Stunt in a backwards Tree of Woe, and then Uno runs in to back elbow Stunt’s back! Uno taunts JB before going back to Stunt. But Stunt fights back! Stunt dodges but Stu tags in to roll over and block the tag! He again hauls Stunt into the Dark Order corner and Uno enziguris! They combine, springboard elbow drop sidewalk slam! Cover, but JB breaks it! Uno is upset but he goes back to Stunt. He taunts Stunt to hit him, so Stunt does! Stunt staggers Uno, and then goes after Uno’s leg! Stunt is biting Uno’s leg! So Uno claws Stunt’s back!

The ref reprimands them both but Uno kicks Stunt down. Cover, TWO! Uno drags Stunt away and then scoops him. Uno shows how strong he is carrying little Stunt around with one arm, before hitting a Fall Away Slam! Cover, TWO and AEW is back to single picture. Uno drags Stunt up but Stunt fights back! Fans rally but Uno whips Stunt. Stunt dodges, tilt-o-whirls to a pop-up COMPLETE SHOT! Both men are down and fans are fired up! Uno and Stunt crawl, but Stu goes around to trip up JB! But JB lands on his feet to SUPER FOREARM! Stunt shoves Uno away, tag to JB! Jungle Boy dodges Uno and DIVES onto Stu! He’s right back to counter kick Uno! And then he slingshots in to elbow and forearm away on Uno. Fans are fired up as he rolls Uno to Penalty Kick! Cover, Stu runs in, but JB gets clear! Stu splashes down on Uno! JB moonsault knee drops on Stu! Then covers Uno, TWO!!

Fans keep rallying while JB keeps his cool. Tag to Stunt and the boys mug Uno. They double whip Uno but he crisscrosses them into each other. Tag to Stu and he leaps in, into double mule kicks! JB grabs Uno, Stunt enziguris Uno down! Stunt gets help from JB, but the ropes are slippery as Stunt hops up. JB steadies Stunt for the second try, DRAGONRANA! Cover, but Uno uses JB to break it up! Uno drags JB up but JB throws Uno out. Stu runs in but is dumped out, and now JB DIVES! The tope is not enough to topple them both, Uno BOOTS while Stu KNEES Jungle Boy down! Stu targets Stunt, scoop to the torture rack, NIGHT FALL BACKBREAKER! Tag to Uno, Stu goes up top. Uno has Stunt in the Gory Especial, Stu blockbusters, FATALITY! Cover, the Dark Order wins!

Winners: The Dark Order, Evil Uno pinning

The now fourth-rank team in AEW might be moving up. Uno gets a mic as his Creepers come in to be his seat. “Marko, Marko, Marko.” Boo all you want, give it up for little Marko! This little man is ridiculed every day, and still he shows promise. But he could be a winner, and Uno can give him purpose. Just become one with the Dark Order! Uno offers a Creeper mask, but JB grabs the mask and throws it away. Stunt’s mask is the Babysaurus mask! Uno can respect that. “Put them down.” Stu and the Creepers attack like piranha! They stomp and punch Stunt and Jungle Boy down without mercy! Fans want Luchasaurus but that leg injury might still be keeping him out. Uno forces JB to wear a Creeper mask but… Wait! Luchasaurus IS here!? And he BOOTS a creeper down! He swats Creeper after Creeper away, and even withstands one Creeper’s pescado by just standing there!

Luchasaurus TOSSES the Creeper into railing, then finally gets in the ring. Fans are loving this as Luchasaurus stands in front of The Dark Order. Uno orders his last three Creepers to shield him, but Luchasaurus TAIL WHIP KICKS all three down at once! Luchasaurus then drags one Creeper up, to TOSS onto the rest! Stu is the last line of defense as Uno bails out of the ring. Stu runs at Luchasaurus, falls for a feint and gets a roundhouse, to a CHOKE SLAM! And standing moonsault! Luchasaurus has only gotten stronger with his return, and the boys are glad to have him back! Jurassic Express is at full strength, and perhaps is now going full speed ahead! Will they steamroll right through the rankings now?

 

Triple Threat: Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard VS Peter Avalon w/ Leva Bates VS Darby Allin!

The Chair Man is back again! He got the win over Bad Boy Joey Janela, but with some help from the Horseman by his side. However, AEW is picture in picture as the Librarians make their entrance, so the one being hushed is Avalon trying to hush Nashville. However, Avalon seems to time his talking down to people perfectly, as we return to single picture to hear him run down “Music City, USA.” “Such musicians like Jason Aldean and Johnny Cash,” and yet… Well, Avalon doesn’t get to finish condescending towards country fans, as the undead underdog makes his entrance! Darby was so close to being champion once, can he win this Triple Threat to prove he deserves a second chance?

The bell rings and Darby is laser focused on Spears. Fans support Darby just about 100% and Spears is willing to step to him. But Avalon gets up to get their attention with his leap! But he FLOPS as the other two easily get out of the way! Darby tosses Avalon out but Spears jumps on Darby! Spears CHOPS but Darby CHOPS so Spears kicks low. Spears suplexes but Darby lands on his feet. Darby goes around, redirects, and dares Spears to bring it. Spears tries but he whips into an acrobatic arm-drag! Fans fire up as Spears bails out, and then Darby builds speed. Avalon intercepts, but Darby bucks him off to put him on the apron. Darby dropkicks Avalon down! Fans fire up as Darby climbs up top. Darby aims at Avalon but Spears shoves him off! Darby bounces off ropes to then hit the mat! Spears drags Darby up, back suplex to the facebuster! Cover, TWO!!

Spears keeps on Darby by putting him in a corner and stomping a perfect 10 mudhole into him. Fans boo but the referee backs Spears off for Darby’s sake. Spears drags Darby up to CHOP him down! Spears goes after Avalon to bounce him off the apron, then give him an apron back suplex! But wait, the Bad Boy is back! And he brawls with Spears! No disqualifications so Joey Janela lights Spears up and tosses him over railing! Janela is all fired up but then Spears goes after Janela! Janela rakes Spears’ eyes and then chases him off into the crowd! The triple threat is now 1v1, and Darby dares Avalon to bring the fight. Avalon runs in, but into an elbow. He tries again but Darby goes up and over, spins around, O’Conner roll, TWO! Darby goes up and out, baits Avalon and even Bates in. He slingshots, gets around, throwback stunner! Darby hurries up top and fans fire up for the COFFIN DROP! Cover, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Janela and Spears are still fighting somewhere in the back, but Darby takes this win without question. Darby then gets a mic to speak. Fans are fired up, but calm down to hear Darby say four words: “Jon Moxley, I accept.” And then fans explode all over again! That didn’t take nearly as long as Moxley thought! The undead daredevil wants to take on the Death Rider, but will he survive?

 

Nyla Rose VS Dani Jordan!

The Native Beast feels there is no respect for what she is capable of shown by the AEW Women’s Division. So Nyla has vowed to make them all fear her instead! Will that begin here and now in Nashville?

The bell rings and DJ is confident, at first. Nyla corners her, but DJ slips out to throw hands. Nyla just elbows DJ away! Then she whips DJ but DJ ducks the boot. DJ throws more hands but Nyla BOOTS her that time! Nyla clamps a choke grip on, but DJ slips out of the slam to SLAP Nyla! Oh that wasn’t good… Nyla roars as she LARIATS DJ down! Nyla whips DJ corner to corner hard, then drags DJ up for big body shots. The ref reprimands Nyla but she just runs corner to corner to splash! Then fireman’s carry, Samoan Drop! But Nyla isn’t done, she drags DJ up and into position, BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

The example has been made and the message has been sent. Who else will be mowed down on the warpath Nyla vows to wreak on the way to the AEW Women’s World Championship?

 

AEW has a medical update for Dustin Rhodes.

The radial fracture of his left forearm is in a cast, and he’ll be out for a few more weeks left. He will be training in the ring to get back to form, so hopefully it will only be a month or so before The Natural is back. Will he want revenge for what the savage Jake Hager did to him weeks ago?

 

AEW announces a big match for next week!

The first ever “Dynamite Dozen” Battle Royale will be held. The difference between this and a normal battle royal? 12 men enter, until only two remain. Then those two will move on to have a traditional singles match, where the winner ears a Dynamite diamond ring, whose purpose will have significance down the line. Who will enter and who will walk out the shining diamond in the rough?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Allie!

Allie is climbing the rankings. AEW’s rankings update every Friday, and right now Allie is #4. Allie is happy to be in Nashville! Nashville is happy to see Allie, too. Allie wants to show the world what she can do, and has done that on AEW Dark. Now it’s time to do that on Dynamite. But wait, those candles on the titantron… They’re going out…! And then the lights go out, too! This is the calling card of AWESOME KONG and BRANDI RHODES! This devious duo heads for Allie and Allie puts up a fight! But she gets a Mongolian chop and a big back hand! Kong drags Allie up to BIEL her to Brandi’s feet. And just as we saw them do to Bea Priestley, Brandi grabs a good lock of hair, for Kong to cut off! What is the purpose of these trophies? Who, if anyone, can hope to stop these two from targeting more victims?

 

Chris Jericho is here!

And he is still Le Champion! The AEW World Champion struts his way to the ring, and fans are torn as he takes up the mic. “Much to the chagrin to everybody here in Nashville, Chris Jericho is still LE CHAMPION!” And once again, Y2J proves he is what he says he is: “The greatest of all time, baby!” And that’s why Jericho will always say it, “I demand a thank you from every single member of the AEW roster, the back office, the front office, the side office, I want my ‘thank you!'” Fans boo instead. But Jericho doesn’t care about “jackasses from Nashville” anyway. Jericho has beaten everyone put in his way, basically the entire Elite. Jericho told us so, that Cody is “nothing more than an entitled Millennial son of a bitch!” But fans chant for Cody, and the lights go down! Here comes the American Nightmare, from his special entrance!

No, wait! It’s Maxwell Jacob Freeman instead!! MJF just stole Cody’s entrance! Fans boo MJF just about as hard as they did Jericho, but MJF just soaks it all in as he joins Jericho in the ring. Maybe harder? Well, they do call MJF “A**hole!” so there is that. But MJF tells “Christopher” that he has to get something off his chest first. Fans don’t like MJF much, do they? Nope! Are they upset about the towel? They were. What fans don’t understand is, their favorite wrestler’s career would be done, and yet MJF is the villain? Fans were cheering the real villain the whole time! And MJF means Cody. MJF mocks the fans, “Cody’s a stand-up guy! I love me some Cody Rhodes!” Oh do you? Do fans love Cody? Yes! Well guess what, Cody couldn’t give “less of a sh*t” about any of them. The real Cody only cares about Cody! Fans don’t believe him, but MJF says only one man knows the real Cody, and that’s MJF!

“The real Cody is a liar! The real Cody is a user and abuser!” The real Cody saw a bright young talent out of New York and saw someone he could make into a puppet. That “sociopath” Cody gave that kid an offer to be a mentor. Fans call BS on MJF. But what’s actually BS is that Cody ever claimed he cared about MJF! Cody only wanted MJF not under his wing, but under his thumb! “Guess what, Blondie! Your thumb ain’t big enough to hold me down!” So it doesn’t matter if you like it or not, MJF is the new face of AEW! “Because Cody Rhodes, I’m better than you, and you know it.” Fans chant but MJF claims Cody isn’t here because he still doesn’t care about them.

Now, back to “Christopher.” MJF is actually a fan. The Mount Rushmore of wrestling would have Jericho as like the third or fourth head. But the word is, Y2J wants MJF in the Inner Circle? Interesting timing bringing that up, “Maxwell.” Jericho heard that it’s MJF who wants to join the Inner Circle. Well is it Jericho wanting MJF in or MJF wanting in on his own? The two argue the perspective, but MJF breaks the loop. “Listen, Chris Cross Applesauce,” as much as you want MJF to join up, the Inner Circle Jerks- Sorry, sorry, Freudian Slip perhaps? All respect to Le Champion. MJF heard about how Jericho likes a little bit of the bubbly, but MJF is starting to think that, just like these “inbred, white trash, redneck hicks,” Jericho drinks too much. To think MJF, “the youngest and fastest rising star in the history of professional wrestling,” needs Jericho, just seems a little odd.

Jericho tells “Maxwell she sells sea shells down by the sea shore,” that MJF might want to be like Jericho. Think about it: both from Long Island, both have three-letter nicknames, both love scarves, both have great senses of humor and are crushingly handsome. It’s like MJF got horny watching Y2J beat down Juvetud Guerrara 25 years ago on a WCW Saturday Night, and then nine months later, “your little twerp ass popped out.” Fans chant “Juve! Juve!” and MJF has to ask: Who the hell is Juve? Google it, babe. But the point is, Jericho understands why MJF wants to be in the Inner Circle. Being in the same ring with Y2J puts someone on a different level. So does MJF want in or not? Depends, does Y2J want MJF in or not? Well does MJF want in? Does Y2J want MJF? Who wants who first?

Jericho breaks the loop this time. Jericho will ask one more time: does MJF want to be in the Inner Circle? Depends, does Jericho want MJF to be in the Inner Circle? “Y’know what? Do you know who the biggest jackass in AEW is?” “Oh I know who the biggest jackass in AEW is!” Yeah?! Who is it!? They both want to say it so they do: CODY RHODES! They hug it out! They’ve found common ground! But wait, Cody IS here!? The scar on his eye tells the tale. QT Marshall and other producers tell Cody not to do this, but Cody doesn’t care! He rushes the ring! He ducks Jericho to get at MJF! Then he punches Jericho! Jericho rebounds off ropes, and Cody attempts the spinning powerslam but it doesn’t really work out. Cody ditches Jericho to Rhodes Uppercut MJF! Jericho gets up, and now the powerslam hits!

But who the hell is this? WARDLOW IS HERE! He CLOBBERS Cody down! And it seems he’s on MJF’s side as he drags Cody up to a fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY SLAM! MJF tells Wardlow to break Cody! Wardlow uses his tie to CHOKE Cody! And then he HANGS Cody on the ropes! MJF shouts that he’s the best, but he still needs someone else to beat Cody up for him! The referees rush out there to save Cody, and MJF leaves with Wardlow. Can Cody get revenge on his former friend now that he’s rolling with Wardlow?

 

Hangman Page VS PAC!

It seems Full Gear was not enough for these two! The Problem Solver got even with The Bastard in Baltimore, but now we’re getting their tiebreaker tonight! Will we see even more #CowboyShit in Nashville?

The bell rings and this sparks off. Pac dodges to enziguri Hangman quick! Pac goes up but Hangman gets far away. Pac hops down to back kick and front kick then back kick again. Pac runs to shotgun dropkick Hangman out, then he FLIES! The Fosbury Flop just manages to take Hangman down! But Pac is not slowing down, he’s up top again for a SUPER MOONSAULT! That’s usually something Hangman does but Pac shows he can do it, too! Pac puts Hangman in and climbs up again. Hangman is in the drop zone, Pac leaps, but has to bail out as Hangman dodges. Hangman dropkicks Pac in the corner and out of the ring! Then he DIVES! Direct hit takes Pac into railing! Hangman puts Pac in, whips him, and pops him up for the POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!!

Hangman keeps his cool as he goes to a corner. He catches his breath while fans chant “Cowboy Shit!” Hangman drags Pac up but Pac fires forearms. Hangman dares him to keep hitting so Pac does. They brawl and Hangman CHOPS. Hangman runs into a boot, then Pac slips to the outside. Pac springboards, into a BOOT! Cover, TWO! Hangman is upset over the count but he lets it go to bring Pac back up. Hangman CHOPS Pac to a corner then hoists him up top. Hangman CHOPS again then climbs up to join Pac. Fans rally up as Hangman stands on the very top, but Pac fights him back. Pac headbutts Hangman down, then adjusts, missile dropkick takes Hangman down! But Pac doesn’t stop, he goes up top again. Fans adjust the chant to be “Bastard Shit!” as Pac aims and leaps, for a missile dropkick to the back! Cover, TWO!

Hangman rolls out to the apron, but Pac is on him at the corner. Pac kicks Hangman until he falls back down, then he goes out to join Hangman on the apron. Pac runs over, but for a side effect to the apron! Hangman climbs up now, and now Hangman SUPER MOONSAULTS! And lands on his feet! Hangman drags Pac up and in as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Hangman throws off an elbow pad to start throwing big elbow shots on Pac! Hangman whips Pac but Pac holds ropes. Pac puts Hangman on the apron but Hangman holds on, to slingshot in! Pac almost kicks the Buckshot apart but Hangman pushes him away, only for Pac to SUPERKICK anyway! Pac runs, into a rolling elbow! Hangman runs but Pac sidesteps to SNAP GERMAN! Hangman flounders up, Pac waistlocks again, another German, but Hangman lands on his feet to DISCUS LARIAT! And Nashville is fired up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” A standing count begins and climbs to 4 but Hangman stands. Hangman drags Pac up to suplex, but Pac slips out to waistlock. Standing switch after standing switch, but much like Full Gear, they run at the ref! Pac tries to low blow mule kick but again Hangman catches it! Pac enziguris and school boy bridges, TWO!

Hangman gets up to SUPERKICK Pac! Pac flops out of the ring! Hangman realizes that and heads over as fans chant “This is Awesome!” Hangman finds Pac staggering around and into a corner. Pac kicks Hangman! Another Full Gear flashback, but it’s Hangman who BRAIN BUSTERS Pac! Hangman puts Pac in, slingshots, BUCKSHOT! Cover, TWO!! Pac survives Hangman nearly taking his head off! But Hangman won’t be denied. He stalks Pac to a corner, but the ref backs him off. Pac bumps into the ref which bumps him into Hangman, but Hangman pushes the ref aside, only to get a BOOT! Pac BOOTS Hangman again! Pac stomps away on Hangman’s head but the ref backs him off. Pac comes back for more and fans boo. The ref warns Pac but Pac doesn’t care! He keeps stomping Hangman, then drags him to the drop zone. Pac goes up top, BLACK ARROW! Into the BRUTALIZER! Hangman is OUT, Pac WINS!

Winner: PAC, by submission

And now he won’t let go! The Bastard is ruthless for sure, but this win doesn’t seem satisfactory. Will Pac get what he wants by moving up from #2 to #1, as in, contender?

 

There’s a brawl backstage!

The Young Bucks are after Santana and Ortiz! Nick Jackson throws Santana into a garage door while Matt scoop slams Ortiz through a table! And then he still rains down right hands on him! The security and referees pull the Bucks back, but Santana has climbed up on top of a forklift! And he LEAPS onto everyone! Santana keeps after Nick and bumps him off another table. Nick kicks back and neither stops. Santana whips Nick at a door! The door flies open, and there’s Orange Cassidy! The Sloth stands there in the bathroom, but Santana closes the door for him. Only to turn around into Matt’s SUPERKICK! Nick beats Santana down more and Matt goes back for Ortiz, to brawl it out! Things are moving through the backstage area, and the Bucks bounce the Proud ‘n’ Powerful off whatever is around!

Matt and Ortiz have ended up by tables and chairs, perhaps a private area for the talent? Meanwhile, Santana and Nick are making their way towards the bleachers! They’re in the arena! Ortiz throws Matt that way, too! They’re brawling in front of the fans! Ortiz uses a mop to jab and SMACK Matt! Matt hits back with haymakers and punches Ortiz towards ringside. Nick and Santana do the same, and Matt runs, only for Ortiz to back drop him up and over the railing! Santana is about to suplex Nick onto the apron but security rushes back out, only for Matt to LEAP Onto them all! The security still get Matt away from Ortiz and Nick away from Santana so things can finally calm down. However, the war of the Elite and the Inner Circle is far from over, especially for these two teams. The Bucks SUPERKICK the security guards out of their way and rush down the ring!

But wait, Ortiz finally resorts to the “blackjack” sock with baseballs in it! He sends Matt and Nick rolling from the heavy gut shots! And Santana goes after the leg that was injured during Full Gear! Santana gets the sock now and Ortiz puts the leg through the girders, for Santana to SMACK away on! But then they go back to Matt! They drag Matt over like they did Ricky Mortin of Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, and Santana makes sure to mark their target. He and Ortiz drag Matt over, for a DOUBLE POWERBOMB!! Matt crashes through the stage! Nick crawls over but “now these boys gonna die~!” That is, until Brandon Cutler appears. He saves Nick from the same fate as Matt, and PNP decide they’ve done enough. But then Ortiz shouts, “Guess what? WE LIE!” They go after Brandon in Nick’s place!

Wait, Private Party shows up! They stand up for the Bucks, but a new wave of security make sure things don’t devolve into another fight! Santana warns Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy not to stick their noses in other people’s business. Matt is dragged from the wreckage as the chaos finally stops. Is the Inner Circle going to win this war of tag teams in AEW?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: SoCal Uncensored VS Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara w/ Jake Hager!

Speaking of tag teams in AEW, SCU still has the titles! And now with Christopher Daniels by their side, they’ll surely be ready for anything that comes their way. Will they be able to deny the Inner Circle the gold? Or are we moments away from seeing Le Doublé Champion?

Scorpio Sky takes up the mic to say, “Nashville! It’s been awhile, let’s see if we still have it. This is the worst town I’ve ever been to!” Nashville is bad but filled with badass fans. SCU may not like the town but they love the people, which is why they have a sample of some California Love~! So Frankie Kazarian has three letters he wants to say, and if they join in, it’ll make his day. “S C U!” The titles are on the line, after the break!

AEW returns again as the “Spanish God” makes his entrance, followed by the Painmaker and his savage henchman, Hager! The introductions are made, the tag belts are raised, and this golden main event begins!

Kaz starts against Jericho, but Jericho gives Sammy some quick tips before things begin. Fans are torn again for Jericho as he ties up with Kaz. They go around, Kaz puts Jericho in a corner, but lets up at the ref’s orders. Jericho complains but ties up with Kaz again. Jericho puts Kaz in the corner now and lets up, to swing a sucker punch. Kaz ducks it to throw Jericho around with arm-drags! Jericho gets up to forearm and CHOP, then he whips Kaz. Kaz rolls off Jericho’s back to dropkick Jericho down. Jericho scrambles, wrong corner, but he finds Sammy eventually and tags out. Sammy assures Jericho he has this, only to run into arm-drags! Kaz has Sammy and drags him over, tag to Scorpio. Scorpio hops up to drop ax handles on Sammy’s arm.

Scorpio brings Sammy up for a spinning backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Tag to Kaz, and Scorpio whips Sammy to drop toehold for Kaz’s slingshot leg drop! Cover, TWO! Kaz keeps on Sammy but Sammy knees low. Sammy CHOPS and whips, but Kaz ducks under. Sammy flips but Kaz held ropes. Kaz drop toeholds Sammy onto ropes, Scorpio kicks him off those ropes, and into Kaz’s German Suplex!

That was incredible! The Closer got the better of Le Champion, and no one can believe it! But SCU takes their titles and get out of dodge before Jericho throws a tantrum by throwing everything he can all over the place! Jericho smashes railing and ring posts with a steel chair, because what he was hoping for didn’t work out at all! And furthermore, does this mean Jericho will be defending against Scorpio Sky in the near future?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow up the PPV with! The highlight real was nice, but what was great was seeing Omega get his medical check. There’s already a strong difference drawn between him and Moxley, in that Moxley, for all the damage they both took, is somehow just more resilient. Moxley was cleared, Omega wasn’t. Moxley gets to have another match already, Omega didn’t. Moxley just got a win on his record, and over Michael Nakazawa, a friend to The Elite, and Omega could only watch. Then with Darby Allin winning the Triple Threat, mostly thanks to the story of Janela VS Spears continuing, Allin is the next one to step to Moxley. I don’t know about unsanctioned, but there has to be something mostly No Disqualification for these two, right?

All the matches were great tonight, with some good stories coming out of them. Dark Order VS Jurassic Express as a feud story for the next phase is going to be a really good one, and I liked the idea that the Order is recruiting. Luchasaurus wrecking the Creepers was great, too. This feud will likely revolve around Uno trying to make Stunt the chief Creeper while it’s up to Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus to help Stunt resist the dark side. Nyla squashing an opponent works for her story, but as one of two Heel monsters in the Women’s Division, who is it that steps up to her to stop her rampage? It seems Allie might be on the schedule for Awesome Kong given that attack tonight, and AEW Dark helped Hikaru Shida feel like Riho’s next contender, so perhaps the other top face, Britt Baker, is the one by default.

I’m very curious about this Dynamite Diamond concept. Will the ring be the midcard title that isn’t a title belt? Will it be used very similarly to Lucha Underground’s Gift of the Gods or Impact’s X Division Championship? That is to say, you win the ring, you “cash it in” to get a world title match, and then a new set of wrestlers competes to win the vacated title. That would be pretty unique, but also very fitting of Cody’s style since he invented the literal Ring of Honor while in ROH. Then there was a lot of great surprises leading to the end. MJF and Jericho had a great promo segment together, it was great to see Cody come for revenge so soon, and I didn’t think Wardlow would debut quite like this. It seems MJF isn’t joining the Inner Circle but forming his own team, starting with his muscle. That brawl of Bucks and Ortiz-Santana was probably among the best backstage brawl I’ve seen. Whenever we get a rematch of Bucks VS PNP, that has to be a contender’s match to face the tag champions.

And of course, the tag team title main event itself was really good, a lot of fun, but not too surprising. It wasn’t a surprise that SCU retained, there’s no way someone is crowned a dual champion so soon. However, I expected it to be Sammy taking the pin, but what a great idea for Scorpio Sky, the MVP of SCU, to pin the world champion! If SCU chooses to Freebird the tag titles, Daniels can step back in with Kaz just in time for a feud with Lucha Brothers while Scorpio is treated as the singles wrestler. Even if Scorpio doesn’t win against Jericho, it’s not like he’s being buried, he’s losing to an all-time great. Plus, this is the first major singles title I’ve heard of Scorpio even coming close to, so that shows AEW can see the true talent in Scorpio that ROH never tapped into.

My Score: 9.1/10

AEW takes a look at tonight’s TNT Championship No Holds Barred main event!

Darby Allin tells Samoa Joe, “I knew when I took this from you in Seattle that you’d want it back. And I know you’d stop at nothing to have it back. Well, I’m gonna make things fair. You beat me in Texas, and you granted me my rematch in Seattle. So I’m granting you your rematch in Ohio. But I want it under one condition: No Holds Barred.” Samoa Joe told the “Little Dead Boy” that Joe is “coming to take back what’s mine. The King will not be usurped by a man like you.” Darby says if he walks out the winner, Joe doesn’t get another rematch. If Joe walks out the winner, Darby won’t get a rematch. This will be the final chapter of their feud! So who writes their happily ever after?

 

Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, The Bunny, The Butcher & The Blade.

Renee Paquette is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as the mercenary trio. Renee thanks them for agreeing to no physicality, and understands that Allie the Bunny requested this time. Bunny tells Hayter, they’re all very impressed by Hayter’s win over Emi Sakura on Rampage last Friday. Now, Bunny feels like Sakura outshined Hayter, but great win nonetheless. And Bunny knows Hayter isn’t the type to back down from a challenge, right? Right. So here’s a challenge: next week on Dynamite, Hayter VS Bunny in a Title Eliminator Match! What does Hayter say? Hayter says absolutely! She bloody loves a challenge, and next week, she’s free.

Renee says there’s something happening as we speak! They get it on the television screen nearby, and it’s Britt Baker being mugged by Saraya and Toni Storm!! Bunny is shocked and Hayter is furious! Hayter hurries off, Saraya talks right into the camera, “AEW is OUR house!” Storm drags Britt up to RAM her into a garage door! Bunny more or less expresses exasperation, but will Hayter be able to save the Doctor?

 

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS Truth Magnum & Turbo Floyd!

The AEW World Tag Team Champions have been reigning for 133 days, but they know the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are gunning for them. But first, they tune up against “The Outrunners.” As always, Platinum Max has a diss track ready! “Acclaimed on the mic, you know we the nicest. Fighting two guys in their midlife crisis! I bet you have sex with each other. How we gonna fight the bootleg Beverly Brothers? C’mon, it’s not the 80s! Acclaimed gonna make you call it quits like you Tom Brady! ‘Ey, y’all should be ashamed. In Ohio, everybody loves The Acclaimed.”

Fans cheer, and Bowens gets the mic to say, “NNNUTTER CENTERRR~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!” And he does~! But while Caster & Bowens just embarrassed Truth & Turbo, are they walking into a trap game before taking on the Ass Boys?

The teams sort out, the Outrunners decide they’ll scissor finger! They mock the Mega Powers at the same time, but then Bowens SUPERKICKS Truth out of the ring! The bell rings, Caster CHOPS Turbo and scoops him to SLAM him! Tag to Bowens and Bowens goes up top! Caster holds open the legs, SCISSOR ME TURBO! Daddy Ass gets in the ring so that he and the boys can TRIPLE SCISSOR~! Bowens waits on Turbo, mule kicks and hits the ARRIVAL! Tag to Caster and he goes up top, MIC DROP! Cover, The Acclaimed win!

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall

But wait! Raining on the parade are Austin & Colten! Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” But they tune that out. They go to the ring, and Colten has a mic. “Hey, good match, guys. But we’re here to talk about something serious. Last week, what we said would make us happy are your belts. And we want a shot at those belts, and we want an answer right now.” Fans boo but Caster has the mic to say, “Yo! Yo! Yo! Yo! Listen.” Bowens says, “You two Rod ‘n’ Todd lookin’ asses want an answer. You do realize you are interrupting the most popular tag team in all of wrestling, right?” Caster adds, “That’s right!”

“The winningest tag team in AEW history!” “That’s right!” “The FOREVER champs, the Acclaimed!” “That’s right!” “And not to mention, EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED!” But they are the People’s Choice, and the People’s Voice, they will ask the people. Colten says these fans can’t even read! But Bowens still asks Dayton’s opinion: Do the Ass Boys deserve a shot at the tag titles? “NOOO~!” Well, the people have spoken, so NO. Austin & Colten get in Caster’s & Bowens’ faces, but Billy tells them all to stop! Isn’t it enough already? Billy is so sick of this, he is just done! Billy says this is too much, so go ahead, beat the sh*t out of each other!

Daddy Ass steps aside, fans fire up, but Austin says, “There you go. Do exactly what you did our entire childhoods and turn your back on us.” Billy stops walking up the ramp, but then chuckles as he keeps going. Austin says Billy should do what he used to do, and drown his sorrows at the bottom of a PILL BOTTLE! That gets Billy to turn around! Billy storms up on his sons and The Acclaimed, as well as the fans, tell the Ass Boys that they F’d up. Billy is up in Austin’s face and says, “So you two think you just put your big boy pants on? Then you just step up, and you just made the biggest mistake…”

The mic is wonky so Billy throws it down. Bowens gives Billy the good one. Billy wants Austin to look at him after what he just said. Austin looks up at his father’s eyes. Billy says if they’ve got their big boy pants on, if they think they got what it takes, if they think they have what Billy had, then we’ll see next week. They’ve got their title shots! The Acclaimed is surprised but the Ass Boys smile that they’re getting their way. Will Austin & Colten get what they want? Or just what they deserve?

 

Backstage interview with Jack Perry.

Alex Marvez is with Jungle Boy and notes that he and Hook are 2-0 as a team, having beaten The Firm’s Ethan Page & Matt Hardy. The question is: What’s next for #JungleHook? JB says that he had an amazing time teaming with Hook, and Hook has had JB’s back when no one else did. But JB’s done the tag team thing before. In fact, JB has been all the way to the top of that mountain, and fallen all the way down. But this year isn’t about that. What JB will say is that he’ll be a champion again, but all by himself. Then just what title will Jack Perry aim for in this Tarzan Life?

 

Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Konosuke Takeshita!

Speaking of having people’s backs, just as The Machine and MJF were about to destroy Bryan Danielson, The Future of Wrestling rushed out to run them off! But now, Cage and Konosuke go toe to toe, will Cage make Konosuke pay for interfering?

Nana coaches Cage up but Konosuke aims from a corner. Konosuke runs in to JUMP KNEE, but Cage dodges!

Konosuke tumbles to the apron, Cage ROUNDHOUSES him! Cage climbs the ropes, and he stands Konosuke up. DEADLIFT SUPERPLEX! Fans boo but Cage flexes while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cage drops a knee on Konosuke, sits him up to KNEE him in the back again and again, then he stomps Konosuke back down. Cage paces, drags Konosuke up, and bumps him off buckles. Cage RAMS into Konosuke, RAMS him again, and then CHOPS him! Cage soaks up the heat, but Konosuke CHOPS back! Konosuke fires forearms, then another CHOP! And another CHOP! But Cage BOOTS Konosuke down! Cage grabs the legs, stomps Konosuke in the stomach, then paces around. Cage stands Konosuke up, wrenches and YANKS the arm, then RAMS shoulders. Cage wrenches, pump handles, and lifts, but Konosuke slips out!

Konosuke runs in but Cage ducks the boot to roll Konosuke up! Konosuke slips out, but runs into a drop toehold! Konosuke’s on ropes, Cage dials it up, TIGER FEINT KICK! Konosuke staggers to a corner, Cage runs in and UPPERCUTS, GAMANGIRIS, and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO!! Cage and Nana are annoyed, but Cage looms over Konosuke. Cage hears the fans rally for Konosuke, but Cage drags him up. Cage reels Konosuke in, puts out another one, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Cage lifts, only for Konosuke to RANA Cage into buckles! BLINDSIDE JUMP KNEE! Cage staggers, Konosuke goes up, FLYING KNEE!

Both men are down and fans fire up! Konosuke and Cage stir as the ring count starts. Konosuke sits up and feeds off the energy. Konosuke drags Cage up into a waistlock, but Cage elbows free! Cage whips, Konosuke LARIATS on the return! Konosuke drags Cage up, waistlocks and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!! Fans rally while Konosuke fires up. Konosuke aims from the corner as Cage stands, and Konosuke runs in, JUMP- NO! Cage blocks the knee to BUCKLE BOMB! And then fireman’s carry, to an F- NO! Konosuke lands out, lifts and LIGER BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives but fans fire up behind Konosuke!

Backstage interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Renee is with Matthew Menard, Angelo Parker, Daniel Garcia, Sammy Guevara, and of course, Chris Jericho himself. Renee says that we heard Ricky Starks’ comments from last week, addressing how the JAS cheated to win. What is their reaction? Jericho says, “Cheated? We haven’t worked together in five years, and you’re accusing us of cheating? Let me say this, Renee. Ricky Starks, he didn’t lose to a baseball bat, no. Did you see a baseball bat in there?” Of course the JAS says no. Jericho says Starks lost to the JAS. And now Starks challenges them, “How can I get another match with Chris Jericho?”

Jericho says the JAS has an idea how Starks can do that. Right, Sammy? Sammy says yes. Garcia and Sammy put their heads together, and they came up with a great idea: The Guevara-Garcia… No, wait, the Garcia-Guevara Gauntlet! Danny thanks Sammy for the top billing on that name. Renee asks what kind of gauntlet they have in mind. Garcia says it’s a rather simple concept. “Ricky, first you’re gonna have to beat Cool Hand Ange. And if that happens, you’re gonna have to beat Daddy Magic.” Menard adds, “Beat Daddy Magic? I DON’T THINK SO!” Garcia says that if Starks somehow does that, then he beats either Garcia or Guevara, but they’ll reveal that the night of.

And then, if somehow, by the skin of his teeth, Starks makes it past all that, only then does Starks get his hands on Jericho. Jericho tells Starks, “You don’t call the shots around here, the Jericho Appreciation Society does. So if you can get through the Garcia-Guevara Gauntlet, I’ll be ready to rip your ass!” Will the Absolute survive three matches in one go to finally have another shot at The Ocho?

 

The Elite speak.

Matt Jackson asks Brandon Cutler if the camera is rolling as he, brother Nick, Kenny Omega, Michael Nakazawa and Don Callis are on the basketball court. Cutler says yes, they’re live, while Nakazawa and Callis are oiling Omega up. Matt says, “Ladies and gentlemen, check it out who it is! It’s the first-ever, two-time Trios Champions, The Elite.” Omega says that’s right, and he tells Top Flight, “I watched what you guys did. After a Best of 7 Series in a ladder match, you got one up on our boys. Well how ’bout next week, you bring your friend, AR Fox, next week and we’ll put these belts on the line, and you guys can shoot your shot.

“But hey, when you shoot that shot, you best not miss. Because The Elite never miss. Nick, if you will.” Nick takes the rock and shoots it, THREE POINTER! Oh, but wait! The Firm’s Stokely Hathaway, Ethan Page, Matt Hardy & Isiah Kassidy walk in. Callis has Cutler keep rolling, and Omega mockingly asks where Stokely is, he can’t see him. Oh haha, Stokely knows you see him, he’s right here. But listen, you three are doing NOTHING all week? No wrestling, nothing? Just a week off? Ethan thinks that’s funny. The Firm’s employees don’t have that luxury, they work every single week, and Ethan wants that streak to continue.

So Ethan says how about this: The Elite VS Ethan, Matt & “Zay,” Friday on Rampage. Omega tells Callis he isn’t so sure, but Callis says this is Matt Hardy. If they get footage of Hardy taking a One Winged Angel, they could sell that NFT for a lot of money. Hardy says, “What about an NFT with Matt Hardy Twist-Of-Fating Omega?” Ethan likes that better! Well, as far as a match, it’s done. The Elite VS The Whatever They Are. Kassidy says he hopes the Elite is ready, cuz they sure are. Kassidy unsettles Kenny with an arm around his shoulders and a moan, and Ethan says this is good business. Hey, Brandon, is it? Cut the camera!

Matt Jackson tells Ethan Page that he doesn’t tell Brandon what to do! THEY tell him! Turn off the camera, ya damn dumbass! And get off the court, they’re trying to play. But will this 3v3 pick-up game go The Elite’s way? Or is it a trap game before taking on Fox, Dante & Darius?

 

Bryan Danielson VS Timothy Thatcher!

In the American Dragon’s quest to be #1 contender, he has defeated Tony Nese, Konosuke Takeshita, Bandido and Brian Cage, an undefeated streak of 4-0 in 2023! But now, Maxwell Jacob Friedman has enlisted a fighter very much like Bryan in his savage technical ability. Will Bryan make it to the deadline still on top? Or is this where MJF wins before Revolution even begins?

The bell rings and the two circle. They feel out the grapple, but Bryan’s shoulder is an obvious target. They grapple, Bryan puts Thatcher on ropes but Thatcher shifts to get the arm. Thatcher wrangles Bryan but Bryan scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Thatcher lets off, and then smirks as he watches Bryan get up. Bryan and Thatcher feel out another grapple, Thatcher puts him in the corner, and then European Uppercuts! And again! And again! Bryan sits down and Thatcher goes after the arm! Thatcher twists the elbow and wrist, isolates the arm, and stands on the hand! Thatcher KNEES the arm!

Bryan scrambles away but Thatcher is right on him with a double wristlock! Bryan powers Thatcher to ropes, and clasps his hands behind his back. The ref counts, the two let off, but then Bryan fires off body shots and kicks! Bryan grabs a leg to DRAGON SCREW!

Thatcher pries the fingers away! Bryan shouts in pain but Thatcher twists the arm! And STOMPS it down! Fans boo but Thatcher grins with that missing-tooth smile.

Thatcher KNEES Bryan in the back, stalks him to a corner, but Bryan puts Thatcher in the corner to CHOP and CHOP and KICK and KICK! Fans rally, Bryan runs corner to corner, and DROPKICKS! Bryan facelocks but Thatcher wrenches and WRINGS Bryan’s arm! Fans boo more but Thatcher drags Bryan up with a double wristlock! Thatcher uses his height to lift Bryan off the mat! Then Thatcher pushes Bryan down, but Bryan keeps his shoulders up. Bryan crawls around, ROPEBREAK! Thatcher lets go at 4 while fans rally up. Bryan clutches his arm but Thatcher goes after it again as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Bryan endures but they’re also in the ropes so the ref counts. Thatcher lets off at 4, then digs his boot into Bryan at the corner. The ref counts, Thatcher lets off, only to stand on Bryan’s chest! The ref counts, Thatcher steps away, and he grins as he soaks up the heat. Thatcher mocks Bryan’s pain, then KNEES the bad shoulder! Thatcher KNEES Bryan again, goes out to drag Bryan tot he apron, and he SLAMS the arm on the edge! Bryan clutches his bicep and shoulder while the ref reprimands. Thatcher slides into the ring and stands Bryan up by his ears! Thatcher CLUBS Bryan on the chest! Thatcher fishhooks Bryan to stand him up, and CLUBS him again!

Bryan sits down, Thatcher stands him back up, and he hammerlocks the bad arm. Thatcher then back suplexes Bryan up and into the ring! Thatcher dusts off his hands while crawling to the cover, but Bryan wrangles him into the LEBELL LOCK!! Thatcher got cocky and got caught! But he scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Bryan lets off quickly, but Thatcher is right on him! Thatcher UPPERCUTS the arm! Bryan goes to a corner, Thatcher KNEES him down, then drags Bryan back up. Thatcher EuroUppers Bryan, taunts the fans, then EuroUppers Bryan again. Bryan leans against ropes, Thatcher snarls at the fans, then gets in Bryan’s face.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Thatcher traps Bryan’s bad arm behind his back and throws hard body shots to that side. The ref counts but Thatcher grins as he throws more shots. Bryan fights back with HEADBUTTS! Fans fire up as Bryan backs Thatcher down, but Thatcher fires off body shot after body shot! Thatcher drags Bryan out to a hammerlock GROVIT, and then hits a GROVIT-PLEX! Cover, TWO!! Bryan is still in this but Thatcher snarls. Thatcher stalks Bryan at the ropes, bumps him off buckles, then reels Bryan in to hoist him up top. Thatcher UPPERCUTS, climbs up after Bryan, and he underhooks the arms!

Bryan resists and fans fire up! Bryan breaks free, throws body shot after body shot in return, and then HEADBUTTS Thatcher down! Thatcher growls and gets right back up! But Bryan throws more body shots! Fans rally “YES! YES! YES!” and Bryan HEADBUTTS again! Thatcher stays down this time, and Bryan stands up! Thatcher stands in time for the MISSILE DROPKICK! Both men are down as Bryan clutches his bad arm, but Dayton rallies up behind him! Bryan and Thatcher sit up, both snarl, and Thatcher EuroUppers! Bryan EuroUppers in return! They go uppercut for uppercut, but Thatcher gets the edge!

Bryan fires up to KICK! And KICK! Bryan KICKS away on Thatcher’s chest, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan powers up but Thatcher blocks the Buzzsaw!

No, Bryan rolls through to BUZZSAW! Cover, TWO!! But Bryan clamps on for HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans rally again, but Thatcher blocks the arm! Bryan claws Thatcher’s face to get free, and get a SLEEPER! But Thatcher wants that bad arm! Bryan has to shift his grip, but Thatcher stands!

Thatcher pries the sleeper open because he can get the bad arm, but Bryan powers up! Bryan has the hold on tight, so Thatcher backs Bryan down! They end up ramming the ref into the corner! Bryan still holds on, but Thatcher hits a BIG back suplex! All three men are down and fans fire up! But here comes MJF! The AEW World Champion tells Dayton to shush, and he puts on the Dynamite Diamond Ring! MJF says, “It’s too damn easy. This is done! This is done!” MJF goes to the ring, but KONOSUKE flies in outta nowhere!! Konosuke won’t let MJF screw Bryan over! Konosuke attacks MJF, RAMS him into railing, and chases him to the back!

Bryan has Thatcher but Thatcher snatches the arm! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! The ref is up, he asks Bryan, but Bryan endures! Thatcher pushes way back on the arm, but Bryan pushes his way forward with his legs! ROPEBREAK!! Fans fire up as Bryan survives by a literal foot! Thatcher lets go in frustration and he scowls as he throws hands on the bad arm. Thatcher drags Bryan up, clinches, BELLY2BELLY SUPLEX! Bryan flounders but Thatcher runs in, clinches, but Bryan switches! GERMAN SUPLEX! Thatcher fumes as he gets back up! Bryan dodges him, runs back in, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Cover, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall

Now 5-0 on the year, the quest continues! The American Dragon is not yet slain, but wait! MJF and Konosuke continue brawling backstage! MJF turns things around to send MJF into a road case! MJF gets a chair to CHUCK it at Konosuke’s head! And then he throws a trash bin! MJF says if Konosuke wants after him, this is what he gets! But Konosuke turns things back around to SMACK MJF off a table! MJF comes back, the hands fly, and security rushes in! Referees and management try to stop this, too! MJF says he’ll kill Konosuke but Konosuke says about the same in Japanese! Renee runs in to be on the scene, and she tells everyone to stop!

Renee informs everyone, “Per Tony Khan, next week on Dynamite in an Eliminator match, it will be Takeshita VS MJF!” MJF is pissed, he doesn’t agree to that, but he MUST! Will the Devil of AEW find that the Future of Wrestling is better than him?

 

Mogul Affiliates speak.

Swerve Strickland says, “It’s been a real relaxing last couple of weeks for Swerve and the Mogul Affiliates and all, since getting rid of some dead weight and all this. Until I was like, retriggered.” Dustin Rhodes returning to stand in front of Swerve’s camera, in front of Swerve’s lights, and with Swerve’s interviewer! “The Rhodes Family legacy really gets under my skin, with your father, Dusty Rhodes, giving Keith Lee the ‘Limitless’ moniker. So, since he’s not here, Dustin’s not here, either, let’s find some other nepotism, second generation punk boy to get rid of Friday night on Rampage. That means you, Brian Pillman. Ain’t that right, Parker?”

Parker Boudreaux says that’s right. “Ain’t that right, Trench?” The tattooed man says, “Yeah, that’s right.” Hoodies up, but will they put Bulletproof BPJ down?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

February 8th, the deadline for Bryan Danielson becoming #1 contender, will see The American Dragon taking on La Faccion Ingobernable’s El Toro Blanco, RUSH!! And speaking of…

Backstage interview with LFI.

Lexi Nair is with El Toro Blanco, but also Jose the Assistant and “Perro Peligroso,” Preston Vance. She notes the announcement of Rush VS Bryan, but then there’s a knock at the door. MJF walks in and says, “Hola, mi hermanos! Senor Vance, Senor Jose, Senor Rrrrrush.” Rush asks what the hell this “perro” wants. MJF double checks, “perro” is dog, right? Well, there’s a little thing called personal space, so he’s just gonna take a step back. “But here’s the deal: my, uh, Spanish is come se dice… Mid. But I know one language, my friend, that is mucho, mucho universal.” And that is MONEY! A huge briefcase full of it!

MJF snaps the case shut and smiles. This first one is free of charge. But he has FIVE MORE filled to the brim with dinero. All Rush has to do is beat Bryan Danielson “by any means necessary.” All Rush needs to do is rip Bryan’s arm off and beat him over the head with it. Can Rush pull that off for him? Jose, translate. Jose translates, but Rush seems to understand explicitly. Rush tells MJF in Spanish, and MJF asks “dipsh*t” Jose to translate. Jose sums it up by saying they have a deal. Oh, is that right? That sounded a bit longer than that. But Rush, you don’t have to like MJF. He just has to get the job done. Pleasure doing business with you, perro.

MJF leaves, but Rush has his mission. Will Rush be raking in the money with one match? Or will nothing stop Bryan Danielson from earning his title match?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Jade Cargill w/ Leila Grey VS Red Velvet!

Finally, the biggest, fastest-rising star has reached her FIFTIETH match! But while the streak started with The Chef, will it end with her, too? Or will #ThatBitch not be stopped by even the person who knows her best?

The introductions are made, but Velvet attacks while Jade is strutting around! The bell rings, Velvet fires off forearms but Jade knees her low. Jade whips Velvet to a corner but Velvet boots her back! THESZ PRESS! Velvet rains down hands but Jade shoves her away. Velvet ducks but runs into an elbow! Jade drags Velvet up, but Velvet fires off forearms! Velvet whips, Jade blocks to reverse, but Velvet holds ropes. Jade runs in but Velvet sends her out! Leila hurries to Jade’s side but Velvet builds speed! Velvet WRECKS Jade with a dropkick! Velvet tells Leila to back off, then she storms up on Jade.

Jade elbows Velvet away, but Velvet comes back to ROCK Jade! Velvet CHOPS Jade right in front of her family! Velvet then puts Jade in the ring, storms up on her and Oklahoma Rolls! TWO! Jade staggers up, blocks a superkick, and she spins Velvet around. Velvet ducks the haymaker and runs the ropes, then wheelbarrows, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up while Jade drags Velvet over to a cover, TWO! Velvet is toughing it out but Jade is getting frustrated. Jade scoops Velvet to SLAM her, then drops a BIG elbow! Cover, TWO, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Leila is annoyed and Jade frowns while Velvet sputters. Jade drags Velvet up, CLUBS her down, and Leila applauds. Jade bumps Velvet off top buckles, then middle buckles, then bottom buckles! Jade stands on Velvet in the corner and soaks up the cheers and jeers, but lets off at 4. Jade and the ref argue, but Leila gets cheap shots in! Leila scurries away and Jade hauls Velvet up for a FALL AWAY SLAM! And then kips up! Jade holds up both hands to say 50, and then flexes. Velvet bails out, Leila talks trash, and Jade storms over. Jade walks up but Velvet sends her into railing! Jade is getting mad, but Velvet avoids one haymaker to PENALTY KICK from the apron!

Velvet CROSSBODIES, but Jade catches her! Jade POSTS Velvet, then carries her around the way. Jade trophy lifts Velvet, goes up the steel steps, and then TOSSES Velvet at the ropes! Velvet falls, Jade covers, TWO!!! Velvet survives and Jade is getting real mad. Leila rallies the Baddie cheering section, and Jade stalks Velvet to a corner. Jade drags Velvet up, and TOSSES her across the way! Jade says that’s 50 right there, and then she does push-ups as Dynamite returns to single picture. But Velvet CHOPS! Jade CLUBS Velvet, then TOSSES her across the way again! Jade swaggers, dribbles, but Velvet dodges the dunk!

Velvet DROPKICKS Jade, then hits a CODE BREAKER! Jade staggers around, Velvet KICKS and KICKS and mule kicks! Velvet runs, but Jade BOOTS her down! Cover, TWO!! Velvet is still in this and wait! Kiera Hogan RAMS Leila into steel steps! The other former Baddie is here, but other refs come out to have her leave. This all distracts Jade, and Velvet rolls her up! Jade rolls through, but the STIR IT UP hits!! Cover, but the refs aren’t paying attention!! Fans count, Velvet would’ve won twice over by now! Aubrey Edwards finally notices and counts, TWO!! Jade survives and fans can’t believe it!!

Velvet is furious, she drags Jade around and hooks an arm, short arm scissor, and then the INVERSION! Jade endures, fights, but Velvet kicks at her! Jade endures as Velvet pulls on the arm, and she deadlifts Velvet! But Velvet sunset flips! Jade stays up, drags Velvet up with both hands, and pops her around! Chicken wings for JADED!!! Cover, Jade wins!!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

FIFTY AND OH! Velvet came the closest of all, but will anyone ever stop Jade’s undefeated streak?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker.

Renee is with The Doctor, as well as Jamie Hayter, as they are with Doc Sampson. We only caught a glimpse of what happened to her earlier at the hands of Saraya & Storm, how is Britt feeling? Britt says this is fine. She’s fine, and if that’s how Storm & Saraya wanna play, that’s fine, too. Because Britt & Hayter can play that game, too. But wait, in walks Ruby Soho! Ruby just wants to talk. She heard what happened, is Britt good? Uh, Ruby, weren’t those your girls? Ruby has Britt hold on there. Ruby has nothing to do with Saraya & Storm, she doesn’t know what Britt’s talking about.

Britt says Ruby’s known Saraya & Storm a lot longer than she’s known the AEW originals, so sorry if it’s strange that Ruby only now shows up. But yeah, Britt is good. Hayter says Britt is great, actually. Ruby says she’s glad to hear it and walks off. There are battle lines being drawn, which side is the Runaway on?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

Not only are The Elite and The Firm having it out, it is for the AEW World Trios Championships! Will Kenny & The Young Bucks make it through All Ego, Hardy & Kassidy to then take on Fox & Top Flight? Or will there be a change of plans for Dynamite? And speaking of Saraya & Storm, they are in tag team action once again, but will they continue to beat down All Elite homegrown talent? Plus, before taking on Bryan Danielson, Rush will take on the Fallen Angel, Christopher Daniels, in an epic match of former ROH World Heavyweight Champions! Will El Toro Blanco build momentum going into his battle with The American Dragon?

 

AEW TNT Championship No Holds Barred: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Samoa Joe!

The series is tied at 1-1, with the Samoan Submission Specialist winning in Texas, but the Relentless One winning in his hometown of Seattle. Dynamite in Dayton is throwing out all the rules except one: win! Will Darby continue to be the fighting champion? Or will Joe return to being the One True King of Wrestling Television?

The introductions are made, the TNT title is raised, and one way or another, this is the series finale of Darby VS Joe!

Darby takes off his trench coat to reveal he, uh, customized his Hoodlum hoodie. He’s covered it in thumbtacks!! And as soon as he’s in the ring, he rushes in to COFFIN SPLASH Joe! Joe is reeling from the tack attack but Darby fires off tack-covered forearms! Fans fire up as Darby runs corner to corner, but Joe dodges the splash to GAMANGIRI! Joe then wraps up an arm in his towel, to LARIAT Darby down! Fans rally, Joe pulls Darby’s tack hoodie off and throws it away. Joe drags Darby up to CHOP him! Darby goes to a corner, but Darby kicks back. Joe stomps Darby, stomps him down, then storms off.

Joe goes out to look under the ring, and he brings out a TABLE! Dayton fires up, Joe picks the table up, but Darby DIVES into the table and Joe! The table doesn’t break but it, Joe and Darby all hit the floor! Joe is busted open on his forehead and fans fire up! Darby hurries to stand the table up, to then drop it on Joe! Darby then brings the steel steps around into the corner of the railing. Darby whips, Joe reverses, and Darby not only clips steel steps, he clips railing! Darby lands on his feet just from momentum, but he soon falls to his knees, clutching his back! Fans lose their minds while Joe stalks out after Darby.

Joe stands Darby up, throws knees into him, and then throws him into railing. Joe drags Darby up and they go up the bleachers. Joe SMACKS Darby off the handrail, then brings him up further. Joe smacks Darby off more railing, then keeps him going up. But Darby fights back! Darby CLUBS and CLAWS Joe’s back! Fans fire up but Joe DUMPS Darby down the steps! Fans are going nuts while Joe glares through his crimson mask, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Joe drags Darby up again, grinds him against the handrail, then SMACKS him off a fan’s chair! They go back to the lower level as Darby kicks Joe and crawls away. Joe keeps after Darby, drags him up, and brings him around the way to TOSS back to ringside! Darby narrowly misses hitting steel steps head first! Joe stalks Darby, drags Darby back up, then scoop SLAMS him on the steps! Darby writhes, flounders away, but Joe follows him to the corner. Darby throws Joe’s ROH World TV title at him, but that only upsets Joe. Joe storms in after Darby, stalks him to a corner, and waits on Darby to stand before he DECKS him!

Joe eggs Darby on as he stands over him. Darby doesn’t stand so Joe makes him. Joe snapmares to CHOP Darby on the back! And PENALTY KICK him in the chest! And then drops a fist on his head! Joe watches Darby writhe and the ref checks on him. Joe grins through the crimson mask, then stomps Darby down. Joe kicks Darby, then clamps on a neck wrench!

Joe clamps the neck wrench back on and he twists even harder! Darby endures, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Darby throws more body shots.

Joe lets go of the neck wrench, Darby hobbles and runs, but into an ELBOW! Darby falls over and Joe covers, TWO! Joe keeps focus as he looms over Darby. Joe KICKS Darby to a corner, and then stomps him. Fans rally and duel, but Joe is annoyed by that. Joe drags Darby up, DECKS him with a forearm, then clamps on another neck wrench! It’s practically a vice on Darby’s head, squeezing his skull! Darby endures, fights up, and he RAMS Joe into buckles! Darby fires off forearms and SLAPS! Darby runs corner to corner, but into the URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives the #STJOE, but Joe stands Darby up to CHOP him!

Darby staggers, Joe CHOPS him again! Darby flops to the apron, Joe builds speed and he BOOTS Darby to the floor! Joe then storms out and looks under the ring. Joe brings out another TABLE!

Fans fire up as they’re back to back to make a wedge! Joe stands Darby up, brings him over, BIG back suplex on the chair wedge!!

CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!! Joe survives but Darby hurries to hop on! THROWBACK STUNNER!

Joe falls into a drop zone, and Darby hurries to get his hoodie back! Darby puts that back on, climbs up the corner, and COFFIN DROPS!! Cover, TWO!?!? Joe survives the tack-enhanced senton and fans can’t believe it! Darby hurries outside and goes looking. Darby uses a knife to cut the strings that hold down the canvas! Some are tough but they all give way, and Darby pulls the canvas away. Darby then drags off the foam padding to expose bare wood! Darby is deconstructing the ring in order to better destroy Joe! Darby sees Joe outside, builds speed and DIVES, but Joe walks away! Darby CRASHES THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

Dayton is losing their minds as Joe puts Darby back in! Joe sets Darby’s tack covered jacket down, he picks Darby up, and he POWERBOMBS him on the tacks! AND THEN HE SMOTHERS DARBY WITH THE TACK JACKET!! Darby DIGS at Joe’s eyes!! Joe lets Darby go, but he staggers around blindly! Joe stands up into a CHAIR SHOT! And another! And another! Darby has Joe on the hard wood, climbs up top, but Joe pushes the ref into the ropes to trip Darby up!! Joe climbs up after Darby, tucks him in, and hits a SUPER MUSCLE BUSTER TO THE WOOD!!!! Cover, JOE WINS!!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Darby’s relentless streak is over! Samoa Joe is now a TWO-TIME TWO BELT CHAMPION! But wait! “THIS IS WAAAR~!” Fans go nuts for Wardlow as he storms down to the ring! Joe is just as shocked as Wardlow runs in! SPEAR!! Wardlow rains down fists on the man who took his title and his top knot! Wardlow rips his shirt off, drags Joe up, but Joe scrambles away! Fans boo but Joe isn’t going to fight again so soon after the war he just went through. Security rushes out but Wardlow CLOBBERS them all! Then he hauls one up to POWERBOMB out onto all the others!! Wardlow will not be denied, when and where will he get his hands on Joe?


My Thoughts:

This was an awesome Dynamite! Same balance of action and talking, but the action was all on a different level this week. Of the talking, we got good stuff out of this AEW Originals VS Imports in the Women’s Division. Saraya & Storm really up their Heel heat by just attacking Britt unprovoked, and then Ruby checking in on Britt was an interesting turnaround from her telling she didn’t want Britt’s help. But we’re getting closer and closer to that big tag(?) match. Hell, make it a Blood & Guts match but with the women rather than the men. Saraya leads a team, Britt leads a team, Ruby will choose Britt’s side and there could even be a twist of Shida betraying Saraya during the match to cost the anti-AEW team.

Good promo from the JAS to set up things with Starks. I just knew Starks would have to beat everyone in the JAS eventually, so it’s clever for them to get it all done in one gauntlet match. Starks will of course make it past Menard and Parker, and I bet that just as it looks like Garcia is stepping up to face Starks, Guevara takes the spotlight from him. Starks will still get through the final opponent, and he’ll get his match with Jericho. Good promo from Mogul Affiliates, because one: it establishes that their group doesn’t like multigenerational wrestlers, and two: it gave Granden Goetzman his wrestler name, “Trench.” Swerve will surely beat BPJ, but I bet Dustin teams up with BPJ and Brock Anderson as a sort of AEW take on WWE’s Legacy faction to take on Mogul Affiliates.

Good promo from Jack Perry, but I’m surprised he waited until now to establish that he’s done with tag teams. But I suppose he’s done with The Firm, too, so he’s done needing reinforcements. As it stands, if he wants a singles title, he could start with the All-Atlantic Championship, but I could see JB making a move for THE AEW World title. Speaking of The Firm, good promo from them and The Elite. I wonder if this was really live or just the take where Nick actually made that shot. Anyway, I’m also surprised the trios match for Rampage is for the titles when the titles are going to be on the line for Dynamite. But I suppose if Orange Cassidy and Darby Allin are fighting champions, then so should the Elite. Which of course means The Elite win on Rampage to go on to face Fox & Flight.

We got an awesome match from Bryan VS Thatcher, but of course Bryan wins to keep his story going. Even after he had that awesome match with Brian Cage, Konosuke going after MJF was a great move. And getting himself an Eliminator match is a good, too, but I feel like MJF finds a way to stand tall. He’ll either cheat to win, or just get himself disqualified quickly so his night will be over quickly. MJF also had a really good promo with LFI. Rush is a great choice to take on Bryan Danielson, and Rush is also going to have a great match with Christopher Daniels on Rampage. I’m sure Bryan will still find a way to win and we’ll still get that Ironman match, it just has to be how this goes.

It’s mostly because I don’t even know who is the #2 contender, since AEW still hasn’t kept up with rankings in this new year. AEW bringing out a sudden twist of MJF still having that One Hour Ironman match against someone other than Bryan would be great stuff, since MJF has been so focused on Bryan, but I feel like getting MJF VS Bryan is still the thing everyone wants to see. Great opening match out of Hangman VS Moxley, and of course Moxley bleeds. It’s practically in his contract. But Hangman losing by a roll-up was a great surprise, and them still being after each other after, this has to continue until Revolution.

The Acclaimed winning a squash was a bit surprising, but obviously that was to make room for the promo that set up things with The Gunn Sons. But Billy suddenly saying his sons can have a title match with The Acclaimed? I hope there isn’t a turn coming where Billy is suddenly on his sons’ side again. It just feels like something is fishy, but who knows. Really good TBS title match from Jade and Velvet, but I guess since this wasn’t at a PPV, Jade wasn’t about to lose. Kiera trying to help Velvet only to mess things up was at least a good detail to protect Jade. But at this rate, who is even going to beat Jade when she’s gotten through even some great established names.

And of course, an awesome No Holds Barred match for the TNT title. Great innovation, such as Darby’s tack covered jacket and the different table spots. I was actually rather surprised to see Joe win this to once again be dual champion. But at the same time, Wardlow returning to continue his story with Joe is a logical reason as to why Joe needs to have the TNT title again. Perhaps Wardlow gets the TNT title back to have a second chance with that, and Darby can move up into the world title scene. And assuming MJF retains at Revolution, it works for Darby to be next as they have history in AEW.

My Score: 9/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (1/31/23)

Orlando stays Dark!

Published

on

Universal Studios is still the AEW Dark Arena!

As they prepare to go after the AEW World Trios Championships, AR Fox & Top Flight reunite to take on The Wingmen: Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: AR Fox & Top Flight VS The Wingmen; Fox & Top Flight win.
  • Red Velvet VS Sofia Castillo; Velvet wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Fulton; Clayton wins.
  • Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Arn Anderson VS Rosario Grillo & Dean Alexander; Anderson & Pillman win.
  • Skye Blue VS Renee Michelle; Skye wins.
  • Shane Taylor Promotions VS Mr. G & Dante Casanova; Shane Taylor Promotions wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki VS Avery Breaux; Yuka wins.
  • The Workhorsemen VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; The Workhorsemen win.
  • Angelico w/ Serpentico & Luther VS Konosuke Takeshita; Konosuke wins.

QUICK NOTES

A solid line-up, and I like that we’re getting to see Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. in action together after a backstage promo on Elevation not too long ago. Not sure what the team name is but two second generation stars together is a logical combination. Angelico VS Konosuke, that is going to be a great match, but I give the win to Konosuke. Red Velvet is in action again after also being on Elevation, she’s definitely building momentum towards taking on Jade Cargill for Jade’s 50th match. And good to see Shane Taylor Promotions in action here. They’ll be a strong part of the ROH Tag Team Division, even after having lost to Keith Lee after Swerve abandoned Keith.

And good to see AR Fox & Top Flight in action, and against The Wingmen. For one, good to see Avalon, Nemeth & Bononi teaming all together again. And this will be a good match to build momentum for Fox & Flight.
