Trent Baretta VS PAC!

With a rematch waiting for him in Baltimore, The Bastard looks to use Trent as a warm-up! Will Pac send Trent packing as he prepares for Adam Page?

The bell rings as fans cheer for “Best Friends!” seeing Chuckie T and Orange Cassidy ringside. Trent and Pac tie up, Pac wrenches to a wristlock but Trent rolls and wrenches to his own. Pac uses the ropes to flip through to a headlock and takeover, but Trent headscissors. Pac pops out and looms over Trent menacingly. Fans chant, “Pac, You Suck!” but Pac goes out to get in their faces. But Orange Cassidy gets in Pac’s face first! Pac goes back in as Trent slides out, and the chase is on. Things speed up, Trent hurdles but Pac leaps, only for Trent to run him over with an elbow! Trent kicks Pac hard while he’s down, and Pac goes to a corner. Trent CHOPS Pac and “WOO~” echoes out in Charlotte. Trent CHOPS again and Pac goes tot he apron. Pac shoulders back, then slingshots in, but Trent denies the DDT to a Northern Lights Suplex! Bridging cover, TWO!

Pac bails out but Trent pursues, only to get a kick. Pac throws Trent into railing! The ref reprimands Pac but he refreshes the count to go out after Trent again. Pac sends him into more barriers, and hard! Fans still says “Pac, You Suck!” but Pac doesn’t care as he steps on Trent’s head. The ref tells Pac to get this back in the ring, but Pac bumps Trent off apron edge before refreshing the count. Pac scoops Trent by the ramp, but snake eyes him off the railing! And then throw him down by his hair on the ramp! Chuckie protests and the ref tells Pac to get in the ring. Pac leaves Trent down and out and the count begins. Chuckie and fans rally but Pac FLIES to take Trent out with the Fosbury Flop! Pac puts Trent in now, and backs Chuckie off. Pac aims at Trent from the top rope as fans rally up for Trent. Pac still hits the big missile dropkick! Cover, ONE!

Trent flounders to ropes but Pac stomps him down. Pac headlocks and grinds but fans rally up for Trent. Trent fights his way up, throws hands and a CHOP! Pac hits back with forearms and he backs Trent down. Pac whips Trent hard corner to corner! Trent tumbles up, down and into a German Suplex! Bridging cover, TWO! Chuckie gets Charlotte rallying up again and Pac is annoyed. Pac drops knees on Trent then puts on a chinlock. Pac digs his knee into Trent’s back as fans boo and jeer. Trent endures and feeds off the energy of the fans. Trent stands up, fights back but Pac hits back! Pac whips, Trent reverses, but Trent is put on the apron for a hotshot! Pac aims but Orange Cassidy slides in? Cassidy stands in Pac’s way while Chuckie distracts the ref. Cassidy unleashes the Sloth kicks! He’s “lighting” Pac up, but Pac BOOTS him down!

Pac scrapes Cassidy out, but turns around into Trent’s LARIATS! Half ‘n’ Half Suplex! Pac bails out, Trent FLIES! Top conjilo takes Pac down! Trent drags Pac up to throw him into barriers!

Pac survives but Trent won’t let up. Trent looms over Pac now, angry for what Pac did to Cassidy. Pac gets back up, swings but misses, Trent LARIATS! Trent hits a tornado DDT! Cover, TWO!! Pac still lives!

Trent grits his teeth as fans rally behind him. Pac rolls away to the outside but Trent pursues, only to get caught into a suplex, BRAIN BUSTER! Both men are down and the ref checks on them. They’re both okay to continue, and starts a new ring count. Pac rises at 2 and Trent stirs at 4. They stand at 5 and Pac puts Trent in at 6. Pac climbs up to the top rope, Trent is in the drop zone… BLACK ARROW! Cover, TWO!? Pac is furious, he puts Trent in the Brutalizer!! Trent passes out, Pac wins!!

Winner: PAC, by submission

Chuckie T protests Pac holding on longer, but Pac does let go. He grabs a mic to shout at Carolina to “shut your stinkin’ mouth!” Pac sends a message to Hangman Page! He heard what Hangman said, and that “naughty swear word,” but it won’t matter! At Full Gear, “I’m going to make an example of you. Again!”

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

The American Nightmare rises from his special underground platform, and heads to the ring to talk with Tony Schiavone again. This is, of course, a second attempt at what Cody was going to announce a couple weeks ago. It is fitting that they are in the birthplace of Cody himself as he finally gives this announcement. “We’re not surprised the arrival of Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle has been strategic.” But this is a short victory lap. The Elite was already looking for something like this. They were already looking for a card where they could get perfect match-ups for the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, even Cody and Dustin Rhodes. So they were looking, and Jericho found them. Now it is Cody and the AEW World Champion as the headliners. Tony knows what this announcement is but Cody hopes the fans will humor him as he rattles off some names.

Eddie Graham. Cowboy Bill Watts. The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes. “All of them were titans in our business.” The best bell to bell, best in the box office, “and for those who saw them live, those memories reverberate in their hearts.” But for the cold, sterile historians, there is controversy because those men were also management. Cody finds himself in the same spot. For the last year, Cody has told everyone who asked that he is proud of AEW, the inclusiveness, the pay, the schedule, the fact that they’ll listen! “This is freedom!” Fans give a standing ovation! But when Cody hears the criticism being sent at him, he can’t ignore it. But fans say that “You Deserve It!” to be a challenger. However, Cody’s announcement is that if he fails to win, he will never challenge for the title again. Fans don’t like that decision.

But Cody tells Jericho that is a big “if.” Jericho calls Cody an “entitled Millennial b*tch,” and yet Cody didn’t see in Jericho’s book, A Lion’s Tale, which is on sale at Amazon for $3, that there was the upbringing for Jericho that was so hard. Wow, must have been so hard being the son of a famous hockey player! They practically had the same silver spoon, “you stupid dick!” Jericho dismissed every accomplishment Cody has achieved. If Cody is entitled, then Jericho is a “carny succubus” because the dirty secret is Jericho needs this generation more than this generation needs him. This isn’t about Cody’s dad, but about his mother, his sister, his wife, and the 14 years it took Cody to go from “Undesirable to Un-God-Damn-DENIABLE!” Charlotte gives an even stronger ovation for this!

Cody promises that at Full Gear, he wins to become the new world champion, and Jericho falls back to his Inner Circle about the ground swell that’s coming. Because when The Elite finally gets at The Inner Circle, “we are going to eat you alive!!” The declaration of war has been given! Will Cody fire the first shot dethroning Le Champeon?

 

The Lucha Brothers and SoCal Uncensored are here!

Pentagon and Fenix may not be AEW World Tag Team Champions but they’re going to get another chance at Full Gear. However, we know that there is a “Bronze Medal” match that will determine the team that joins them and SCU in a Tag Team Triple Threat. However, the deciding factor was a quick one, so that is why we are getting this Full Gear match at all. At this moment, SCU joins English commentary while Lucha Brothers join Spanish commentary to watch this match very closely.

Bronze Medal Match: Private Party VS The Dark Order!

Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy take on Evil Uno and Stu Grayson, both teams vying for a second chance of their own! Who moves on to face the top two teams of AEW for a chance to be THE team of AEW?

The bronze medals are raised and the team sort out. Stu starts against Quen, and he CLOBBERS Quen with forearms the moment the bell rings! Stu tackles Quen to the Dark Order corner and Uno tags in. Uno fires off haymakers then whips Stu in for a big corner splash. Stu feeds Quen to Uno’s full body attack, then Uno feeds Quen to Stu’s boot! Tag to Stu but Quen fights back with forearms! Stu pushes Quen but Kassidy tags in. Quen atomic drops, and Kassidy gives a squealing enziguri! Kassidy sits Stu up for Quen to leap frog STOMP down! Fans cheer, and SCU give Private Party their props. But the Dark Order regroups and their creepers create a wall to protect them. Uno runs in but Stu sneaks up on Kassidy. Kassidy was ready and gives forearm “Shots! Shots! Shots!” Kassidy squeals again, but swings into a BIG urenage!

Stu tags Uno and Uno drags Kassidy up for a backbreaker! Uno chokes Kassidy on the ropes but lets up at 4, and tags in Stu. Fans rally up for Private Party but the Dark Order double whip. Kassidy slips out of the slam to kick at Stu. Stu blocks and ducks the enziguri, but it goes into Uno! Kassidy slips under Stu but Stu turns him around. Uno gets up but Kassidy hits him first! Stu tackles Kassidy and throws him out. Uno trips Kssidy while Stu talks trash to Quen! Fans boo as the Dark Order get away with that one. Stu slingshots for a senton on the apron! The Dark Order has control and the fans booing as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Uno drags Kassidy up to rake the back! Fans boo but Kassidy runs at Uno! Uno holds him back and turns him around but Kassidy resists the suplex. Kassidy tries to suplex, and he gets Uno up and over! Fans rally up as Kassidy and Uno crawl, hot tags to Stu and Quen! But Quen runs into a LARIAT! Uno scoops Quen and Stu hops up, flying elbow sidewalk slam combo! Cover, TWO! Tag to Uno and then tag back to Stu. Stu goes up top again as Uno has Quen in the Gory Especial! But Quen denies Fatality and dropkicks Uno back! Stu hops down but gets Party in Motion! Quen boots Uno, hops up, QUEBRADA! The Dark Order regroup outside, Quen flicks the tails to FLY! A two-for-one conjilo! Quen puts Stu in, rallies with clotheslines and a leg lariat, but Stu puts him on the apron. Quen springboards back in for the crossbody! Cover, TWO!

Quen drags Stu up and over, tag to Kassidy. Private Party double whips but Stu crisscrosses and dodges to DOUBLE PELE! Tag to Uno, Uno drags Kassidy up to a fireman’s carry. He pops Kassidy up, folds him, One Winged SHOULDER BREAKER! Cover, but Quen breaks it! Uno tags Stu and Kassidy tags Quen! Quen runs into an uppercut, knee, and then Uno kangaroos Quen into Stu’s overhead suplex! Quen lands on Kassidy! Stu climbs up and Uno runs corner to corner, 450 over the CANNONBALL! Cover on Quen, TWO!! Private Party still lives! Stu tags Uno and SCU gives Private Party credit for the toughness. Stu pops Quen up to the Electric Chair, tosses him to Uno, but Quen turns powerbomb into huricanrana, and Dark Order bumps heads! Tag to Kassidy, and he springboards, into Stu’s KNEE! Uno tags Stu in, Gory Especial, but Quen trips Stu!

Uno hits Quen but Quen helps Kassidy with SILLY STRING DDT! Tag to Quen, he aims at Stu, GIN ‘N’N JUICE!! The cutter hits, Quen covers, Private Party wins!!

Winners: Private Party, Quen pinning; joins the AEW World Tag Team Championship match

The Triple Threat is set! And all three teams meet face-to-face-to-face in the ring! SCU hold up the belts but the fans are dueling! Will the young underdogs rise up to the top against two incredible veteran teams? Will Pentagon and Fenix make history after all by being duel tag team champions? Or will SCU continue to be the one and only AEW World Tag Team Champions?

 

AEW shares a video from The Inner Circle.

Sammy Guevara brought some “options for the bubbly” over to Le Champeon. But Chris Jericho, immediately parodying Cody Rhodes, “can’t focus” but does give Sammy a peck on the cheek. Sammy says Jericho is like a father to him. Hearing that Cody would be Jericho’s challenger at Full Gear, Sammy knew it was already over for Cody. Jericho also parodies spending time in the hyperbaric chamber. Jericho is the face of the company as champion, and being champion means he’s face of the company. Soultrain Jones has known Jericho since he was 12 years old, and he was as driven then as he is now.

Santana dares us to name another man that works harder than Jericho. Cody has to just let go and move on. Ortiz says Jericho is a grown man but Cody is a boy. Cody has no chance. Patricia Bobski, a friend of Jericho’s aunt from church, remembers Jericho as a young boy, and knew he’d grow up to be the AEW World Champion. In her heart, she prays that Cody just survives. Sammy says Jericho is in the prime of his life at 48, “they youngest AEW World Champion in history” (mostly because he’s still the only one in history). Jake Hager has nothing to say. Jones knows Jericho is the Greatest of All Time. Jericho has a training montage. Patricia knows Jericho will “beat the sh*t out of Cody at Full Gear.” Le Champeon speaks for himself, saying he has such a hard time waking up and realizing how amazing he is. Hager still has nothing to say.

Jones says Jericho’s talent is like the Olive Garden’s bread sticks: unlimited. Jericho only has one thing on his plate: drinking a bit of the bubbly. He has to worry about where to go for the best, and that’s a lot of pressure. But it is the responsibility Jericho has to face. “Because I am Le Champeon.” Jokes aside, will Jericho be laughing after facing a motivated Cody at Full Gear?

 

Jamie Hayter & Emi Sakura VS Riho & Shanna!

Emi and Riho prepare to face off for the AEW Women’s World Championship as mentor and student, but they also bring in two recently debuting women to help them warm up. Will the challenging mentor or the champion student gain a last bit of momentum before Baltimore?

Riho and Emi start, already giving us a preview of Full Gear. They tie up and Emi throws Riho down hard. Riho is right up and they tie up again. Riho waistlocks but Emi reaches back to headlock and takeover. Riho headscissors, Emi pops out but Riho sweeps the legs to cover, ONE! Emi sweeps and covers but Riho Matrix slips out, only for Emi to grab her hair! Emi CHOPS Riho in the corner, then uses the hair to snapmare! The ref reprimands Emi but she just scrapes her boot on Riho. Emi laughs as she uses Riho’s hair to TOSS her! Hayter attacks out of nowhere! Emi whips Riho but Riho handsprings past to knee her down! Riho tags in Shanna and now Portugal’s Perfect Athlete whips Emi. Emi reverses, but Shanna reverses to uppercut!

Shanna runs again, to hit a rolling neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Emi escapes but Shanna drags her up to tag in Riho. Riho and Shanna double whip, double kick, and double bulldog! Hayter protests but Riho runs for Shanna to use her as the human weapon, wheelbarrow splash! Cover, TWO! Riho drags Emi up and rams in for a Northern Lights, but Emi blocks and rakes Riho’s back!

Emi CHOPS Riho, then runs, but Riho drop toeholds Emi onto ropes! Riho runs, 619 but it’s blocked! Emi butterfly draping backbreakers! Tag to Hayter, and Hayter drags Riho up for a hard snap suplex! And another! Fans boo but Hayter mockingly asks Riho if she’s okay. Hayter stomps Riho over and over as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hayter tags in Emi and Emi drags Riho up to whip. Emi dropkicks Riho down then drags her around. Emi hooks the legs and grabs the arms, for the Romero Special! Riho endures the Mexican Surfboard, but then Emi make sit a rolling Romero! Emi TOSSES Riho then tags in Hayter. Hatyer drags Riho up into a camel clutch, and pulls at Riho’s mouth. The ref counts and Hayter lets up at 4, to give Riho a double Wet Willy! Hayter stomps Riho down then wraps her up in a thrashing chinlock. Riho endures even as Hayter grinds her down. Hayter keeps Riho away from ropes to then elbow away on Riho’s shoulder. Hayter pets Riho mockingly before dragging her up for a hard scoop slam! And then another! Hayter drags Riho up a third time for another thrashing chinlock! Riho endures as fans rally and AEW returns to single picture.

Riho reaches with a leg and gets the ropebreak! Hayter lets go long enough to drag Riho back up, but Riho hits back! Riho runs, and tilt-o-whirls to headscissor Hayter down! But Emi stomps Riho down! Emi scoops but Riho slips out to wheelbarrow, victory roll to STOMPS! Riho crawls, hot tag to Shanna! Shanna fires off on Hayter with forearms and CHOPS! Fans fire up as Shanna goes corner to corner for a big forearm smash! And another! Shanna hits another and drops Hayter! Cover, TWO! Fans rally with Shanna as she drags Hayter up.

But that’s not all, underhooks to butterfly DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Emi survives but Shanna keeps on her with a full nelson.

Riho aims at Emi, but the meteora misses! Emi sunset flips, TWO! Riho rolls Emi up, TWO! Emi spins Riho to a backslide, but then rolls to La Magistrol! Emi and Hayter win!!

Winners: Emi Sakura & Jamie Hayter, Sakura pinning

If Emi can use a chaotic combination like that, she might become the new AEW Women’s World Champion! Can Riho rebound in Baltimore against the woman who taught her so much?

 

Brandi Rhodes continues her dark transformation.

“I have worked so hard to get to where I am today, and yet I’m still constantly dismissed for my merit because of who I am.” She’s only here because of Cody, is just another pretty face. While they were all trying to paint her as the clown, they forgot one thing: “Calling me stupid doesn’t make that so, and now I’ve outsmarted you quicker than you can say ‘bimbo.'” Brandi knows dreams and nightmares, but there is nothing like a night terror. Awesome Kong’s body, Brandi’s brain, and they will tear apart the dreams and make everyone long for nightmares. Brandi doesn’t have authority, not that she’s ever really wanted or needed it. All Brandi needs is lapsed judgement. “They can’t stop her, you can’t deny us.” So the question is: “Who are the bullies now?” Will Brandi and Awesome Kong answer that with actions in the ring?

 

Brandon Cutler VS Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard!

The Dungeon Master is back, but he might need a saving throw against The Chairman! For those who didn’t see AEW Dark, Spears literally burned The Bad Boy, and he might just do the same to Cutler tonight. Will #PERFECT10N not be denied tonight?

The bell rings and Spears circles with Cutler. They tie up, Spears wristlocks and brings Cutler down to the mat. Cutler gets up, rolls, handsprings and wrenches back. Spears spins and wrenches to a hammerlock and then a forearm! Cutler gets to a corner as Spears gives him the 10 fingers. Cutler fires up to fire off haymakers!

AEW previews Moxley VS Omega, Lights Out!

In other words, it is UNSANCTIONED! Kenny Omega doesn’t want Jon Moxley pretending to be upset that this is now a hardcore style match. “What else were you going to do?” Chain wrestle the Best Bout Machine? Moxley claims he is being treated as a freak, an outsider, being put in a corner. He’s been dealing with this his whole life. Though at the same time, his whole life has been hardcore to the extreme, and is “the baddest son of a b*tch in this game.” Omega thanks Moxley. Omega’s best work wasn’t because he was handed something, but because he had to work for and sacrifice it. Moxley’s at his best when he’s at his worst. Moxley doesn’t want to find someone who brings the best out of him, but who brings the worst out of him. “You ain’t seen nothing yet!” Omega is glad to be going to a dark place with Moxley. But what will we see from two of the best when they get to do the absolute worst to each other?

 

Kenny Omega & Hangman Page VS Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho!

Before going #LightsOut with the Death Rider, the Best Bout Machine again teams with the Problem Solver to see if they can’t stick it to the Inner Circle this close to Full Gear. Will we see some #RealCowboyShit before Page takes on Pac? Or will the “Spanish God” and Le Champeon get to pop a little bit of the bubbly even before Baltimore?

Of course, Jericho has the savage Jake Hager with him, so anything could happen. This main event will use TV time remaining, after the break.

AEW returns again and fans jeer Le Champeon. Sammy starts against Omega at the bell, but Omega wants to have a quick rematch with Jericho. Jericho tags in and fans are thunderous! Until Jericho tags back out to Sammy. Omega keeps his cool as he circles with Sammy, and they tie up. Fans clap the Terminator drums as Omega puts Sammy on the ropes.

My Thoughts:

WOW what a great go-home! Everything was dripping with importance, nothing was filler. Pac beating Trent in a real good match and calling out Hangman. The huge announcement of a Triple Threat Tag for the titles already, and Private Party is part of that. They had a great match with Dark Order, and will be a great part of that match, but I can’t say they actually win. They might be there so that if SCU retains, or even crazier, if Lucha Brothers win to be dual champions, it is Private Party that takes the pin. The women’s tag was solid stuff, and Emi actually pinning Riho, that could be a giveaway that Riho retains in her first PPV defense. At the same time, AEW does things differently, it might have been a tease of an even bigger finish.

Spears VS Cutler was of course going Spears’ way, and great to see Janela respond from AEW Dark already. Give us THAT Unsanctioned Match for the post Full Gear episode! Brandi probably doesn’t need this spooky side to her, but her Heel motivation does work. No one should discount her just for being Mrs. Rhodes, and I’m sure she and Awesome Kong will get much more involved after Full Gear towards the next PPV. Cody had probably the best promo of 2019 tonight, and perhaps of his entire career. And those are big stakes, saying he’ll never ever challenge for the AEW World Championship again if he loses. I don’t know if that guarantees he wins or guarantees he loses, but I love that there’s more to this than just Cody proving something to us and himself and to Jericho.

Jericho’s parody of the Cody hype package was amazing. Heel or not, Jericho is always over for his ability to entertain. And we got a really good match out of him, Sammy, Omega and Hangman, and then that brawl was amazing! It managed to encapsulate all the stories, and it helps make the math a bit vague since there was no real end to it on air. Full Gear is going to be a great one-month marker for AEW, and greatly deserved.

My Score: 9.2/10

Santana and Ortiz speak.

“It’s the time of year where it’s the popular type of trend to say ‘New year, new me.'” But the fact is, Santana and Ortiz have had their eyes on the prize the entire time. For all those teams who have been asleep, wake up and smell the coffee. It’s their time to eat. This is fair warning, so beware.

The Walk Off: “Pretty” Peter Avalon VS Lee Johnson, Guest Judges: Brandi Rhodes, Jerry Lynn, and Aubrey Edwards!

The Pageant Provocation has taken a new form! Avalon challenged Big Shotty to this contest of style and grace, but will he end up the one losing?

The judges are already on stage as Justin Roberts introduces the concept’s rules. The three “pretty” judges will watch as each man, with one stylish outfit each, will take 10 steps down the runway, pose, then walk back those 10 steps. The winner will be determined by Brandi, Jerry and Aubrey. But then Avalon walks out and wants Justin to let him handle those introductions himself. Obviously we have Brandi Rhodes, who was an international model on magazine covers, and now is a pregnant mother to be. Avalon believes that makes her a MILF: A Mother I’d Like to Forget. Then there’s Aubrey Edwards, AEW’s premier female referee, but wait shouldn’t she be in the Kentucky Derby? And lastly, Jerry F’N Lynn! He’s like Spinal Tap, brings it to an 11, he is beautiful. Avalon’s standards are weird.

But anyway, with Avalon out here, Big Shotty makes his entrance! Despite the loss earlier tonight, Johnson cleans up nice in his suit, slacks and shoes. Johnson will start us off with his 10 step strut on the red carpet. He hits the pose, does a spin even, and then walks back up the red carpet. Fans are on his side, but the judges give their scores. Aubrey has a 9, Brandi has a 9, and Jerry has a 9! All nines across the board, so Avalon will have to get at least one 10 to win.

Avalon takes off the robe to show off his own shining smoking jacket. PPA struts his stuff, stutters a step, but strikes the pose and unbuttons the jacket. Avalon struts his way back, and now for the judges’ scores. Aubrey says a 9, Brandi says a 9. And Jerry says a… Wait, he wants a replay? The production team puts it on the titantron, and yes, Jerry saw it, too! The stutter step! That will have to affect his scoring. Jerry hates to do this, but it’s not a 9, but a 6!! Johnson wins!!

Winner: Lee Johnson

Avalon is furious that he lost his own concept! And then CEZAR BONONI shows up to DECK Johnson!? Avalon likes that! Avalon adds on stomps but Jerry Lynn steps up to defend Johnson! PPA may be a sore loser, but will Big Shotty get payback for that cheap shot?

 

Santana & Ortiz VS Ryzin & Mike Verna!

Despite being the tag team Chris Jericho brought to AEW, Proud ‘n’ Powerful did NOT win the Inner Circle Triple Threat Tag Challenge! Will they vent their frustrations out on the Priest of Sin and the Real Man of Steel?

The teams sort out, and Verna insists he start. Ryzin reluctantly accepts, and Verna circles with Ortiz. They tie up, Verna headlocks but Ortiz powers out. They ram shoulders, both men stay up so Ortiz dropkicks Verna down! Ortiz baits Verna in, to spin him and hit a backbreaker! Ortiz hits a HALF HATCH, then he runs in at the corner to splash! Tag to Santana, Ortiz whips Santana in for the uppercut! Santana brings Verna up to suplex high and hard! Fans rally as Santana CHOPS Verna! And KICKS him!

Santana fireman’s carries, Ortiz runs in, DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER COMBO! Santana DECKS Ryzin while Ortiz covers, PNP wins!!

Winners: Santana & Ortiz, by pinfall

That win was faster than a speeding bullet! But sadly, being the fifth ranked team in AEW doesn’t matter anymore if #Y2MJF is the official team of the Inner Circle. Will Santana and Ortiz take out every other tag team to prove a point to Jericho?

 

Tay Conti w/ Anna Jay & Negative One VS Davienne!

The Brazilian blackbelt continues to hang out with The Dark Order, but has she officially joined up yet? Can she convince AEW’s new arrival to #JoinDarkOrder?

Negative One shows off his “power” by tearing his shirt off and throwing it at the camera man! The bell rings and Davienne runs in, only for Conti to boot her and roll her back into a body scissor roll! Conti hooks the arms with her legs and bridges back into a modified butterfly stretch! Davienne pushes Conti down to a sunset flip, TWO! Conti gets the arms, brings Davienne up and monkey flips her! Conti rolls back to cover, TWO! Conti shoves Davienne down to get the KNEEBAR!

Winner: Tay Conti, by submission

Conti gives Davienne a kiss goodnight before letting her go, and then celebrates with Jay and Negative One! Will Conti officially #JoinDarkOrder at some point?

 

Preston Vance w/ Alan Angels & Negative One VS Ray Jaz!

Number 10 was just as disappointed as the rest of the Dark Order when Hangman Page chose NOT to #JoinDarkOrder, but you can’t dwell on the past! Will Vance move forward and perhaps even convince his opponent to sign up in Hangman’s place?

The bell rings and Negative One joins commentary as Vance and Jaz circle. Vance and Jaz tie up, Vance powers Jaz to a corner but lets off as the ref counts. Jaz and Vance circle again and tie up. Vance powers Jaz back but Jaz puts him in the corner this time. The ref counts and Jaz gives a push as he lets off. Jaz runs, Vance runs him over! Fans rally up as things speed up. Jaz drops, hurdles, but Vance shoves him. Jaz wheelbarrows but into a stungun GERMAN! Negative One loves seeing that! Vance runs into the corner and clotheslines Jaz! Vance whips, Jaz reverses but Vance goes up and over. The leg buckles, Jaz CHOP BLOCKS! Negative One does not like seeing that!

Jaz drops elbows on the bad leg, then again. Jaz hits a knee breaker and Vance clutches the leg. The fans rally for Vance and Jaz yanks on the leg to another knee breaker! Vance writhes, Jaz drags him around to tie up the legs, then he hooks the leg up. Jaz grabs at the arm, pulls Vance back and Negative One grows frustrated. Vance endures, fights off this half surfboard, and Jaz TWEAKS the leg! Vance hits body shots back and that is back to Negative One’s liking. Jaz CLUBS Vance, stomps the bad leg, then pushes Vance around. Jaz grabs the leg for a cover, TWO! High stack, TWO! Jaz drags Vance to the ropes to drop down on the leg! Negative One is not liking this as Jaz has the leg again.

Jaz stands on the leg, then SMASHES the knee into the mat! Jaz puts Vance in the corner, wraps the leg around the rope, but the ref counts. Jaz lets go at 4, runs in but Vance dodges!

Winner: Preston Vance, by pinfall

The Dark Order is fired up, and Negative One goes to the ring to celebrate, by giving Jaz a kendo stick smack! Brian Pillman Jr. gets in to defend Jaz, and it’s a duel between kendo stick and… lacrosse stick? Negative One is a small target, though, and he SMACKS BPJ in the stomach! Negative One goes after BPJ more with smack after smack, after smack! He even uses BPJ’s own lacrosse stick to choke BPJ! Preston Vance pulls Negative One away from BPJ! Will the Dark Order show no mercy as they look to take over AEW?

 

Red Velvet VS Madi Wrenkowski!

Things have been bittersweet for Red Velvet lately, but there’s always a chance to rebound! Will Velvet be serving up a fresh L tonight?

Negative One surprisingly returns to commentary, having calmed down from just a moment ago. The bell rings and the two circle to tie up. They go around, break, and Madi mocks Velvet’s height. Velvet and Madi tie up again, they go around, Madi puts Velvet in a corner. The ref calls for the break, Velvet kicks then runs but Madi runs her over!

Winner: Red Velvet, by pinfall

Velvet wins the match and Negative One wins $5 from the gentlemen’s bet he made with Excalibur. Will Velvet be poised in the top 5 soon enough? Will Negative One think Velvet should #JoinDarkOrder?

 

Sean Maluta VS Danny Limelight!

The Samoan Dragon and the Boricuan Spider are 1v1 for the first time in AEW! Which bright young star shines brighter in the Dark?

Negative One sticks around, he’s enjoying commentary too much. No bets are placed but Negative One says Limelight’s got this one because he’s so skilled. The bell rings, Limelight and Maluta circle, tie up, and Limelight picks a leg to trip Maluta up. Limelight rolls Maluta to a whip, things speed up, but Maluta grabs a leg to roll Limelight. Maluta keeps moving, Limelight rolls Maluta, TWO! Fans rally as the two stand off and reset. Maluta and Limelight circle, Maluta shows handshake but kicks low! Maluta CHOPS, CHOPS, and throws big forearms! Maluta whips Limelight corner to corner, Limelight reverses but Maluta puts him on the apron.

Limelight enziguris, then jumps, jumps and arm-drags! Maluta bails out, Limelight builds speed, and FLIES! Tornillo Conjilo! Fans fire up as Limelight does his dance and brings Maluta back into the ring. Maluta sits up into a PENALTY KICK! Cover, Limelight wins!!

Winner: Danny Limelight, by pinfall

Negative One was proven right as the Spider strikes and slays the Dragon! Will Limelight shine and rise up the rankings?

 

Ivelisse w/ Diamante VS Jazmin Allure!

La Sicaria and the Cuban Diamond have been running strong as a tag team, but it’s back to singles actions for tonight. Will Ivelisse be better than her #TopTier opponent?

Jazmin gets in Ivelisse’s face but then cools off as the bell rings. They feel out the grapple but Ivelisse fires off fast hands and a kick! Ivelisse CHOPS, whips but Jazmin dropkicks a leg out! Jazmin talks trash again but Ivelisse RAMS into her! Ivelisse hooks a leg for an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Ivelisse is annoyed but she stalks Jazmin to ropes. Ivelisse stomps Jazmin, dribbles her off the mat, then lets off to KICK her while she’s down! Jazmin goes to the apron, Ivelisse argues with the ref, and Diamante gets a hard shot in! Ivelisse stomps Jazmin, digs her boot into Jazmin’s chest, then lets off. Ivelisse kicks Jazmin while she’s down, then drags her into a seated cobra twist.

Jazmin endures, fans rally up, but Ivelisse thrashes her around. Jazmin fights up and moves around to throw body shots! Ivelisse CLUBS Jazmin down, then lines up the shot for the QUESTION MARK KICK! Cover, TWO! Ivelisse is annoyed again but she drags Jazmin up again. Ivelisse snap suplexes and bridges, TWO! Jazmin gets up but Ivelisse is right on her with double overhooks. Jazmin fights up, spins around throws body shots to then hit a JAWBREAKER! Ivelisse wobbles, Jazmin fires up and runs into the corner to forearm smash! Jazmin fires off fast hands, Ivelisse shoves her away but Jazmin wheelbarrows to a FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Jazmin grows frustrated, she fights up and fires forearms and counter punches! Ivelisse blocks a punch to cravat KNEE! Jazmin crumples but Ivelisse pushes her around. Ivelisse aims, for a SPINNING ENZIGURI! Cover, Ivelisse wins!

Winner: Ivelisse, by pinfall

One half of the Women’s Tag Cup winners continues to win, will she and Diamante get in on the big AEW Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament that’s coming?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Hook VS Jake St. Patrick!

Team Taz’s Machine and Absolute are going to take on Darby Allin and Sting in a Tag Team Street Fight at AEW Revolution, but the rest of the team is still pursuing the top spots! Will the Powerhouse pulverize his opponent to prove he’s worthy of the upper ranks?

The bell rings and JSP dropkicks but it barely budges Hobbs! Hobbs catches the punch to a cording hold, then whips JSP to run him right over! The ref checks on JSP but he’s okay to continue, so Hobbs tosses him out! Hobbs argues with the ref, Hook is lurking, Hook hits an EXPLODER! Taz is a proud father on commentary as Hobbs goes out to fetch JSP. Hobbs drags JSP up, scoops him and puts him in the ring. Hobbs takes his time stalking JSP before he drags him back up. Hobbs eggs JSP on and JSP throws forearms! JSP ROCKS Hobbs, runs, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs smiles then brings the straps down.

JSP crawls to the corner, Hobbs takes aim, BIG CORNER SPLASH! Hobbs drags JSP into a pump handle scoop and SLAM! Cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

The “Town Business” is booming and Hobbs has another win! Will Hobbs continue to manhandle the mere mortals put before him?


My Thoughts:

A good AEW Dark, with a handful of highlights. For one, Fenix VS Baron Black was a great match, and a great showing for Baron, even in losing. Then, for The Walk Off sounding so goofy, AEW managed to do it so well that it was actually a lot of fun. Plus, I like that they used Avalon losing to bring Bononi into something. I wonder if Avalon and Bononi become a new tag team with the “we’re good looking” gimmick. Maybe a match with Avalon and Bononi can be how the team of Johnson and Solow get their first win in AEW.

Another highlight, surprisingly, was Negative One being on commentary and running around. He was a pretty fun part of Vance’s, Velvet’s and Limelight’s matches. And I haven’t been keeping up with Being the Elite, but I guess there’s something brewing between him and Pillman Jr. I do appreciate that AEW does a great job of integrating every layer of their media, from Dynamite to Dark to now BTE, it’s just on us fans to try and keep up. I feel like Negative One should become the BTE Champion (apparently that’s a thing now) so he can plug that on Dark and Dynamite for those who aren’t keeping up.

My Score: 8.1/10

The Dark Order is here!

It’s a huge birthday bash for Negative One, Brodie Lee Junior! The cake is there, the candles are lit, and fans cheer on, “Happy Birthday!” John Silver says tonight is a very special night and fans cheer in agreement. Firstly, the Dark Order is going to get a new recruit in “a handsome cowboy,” Hangman Page! But second of all, it’s someone’s birthday~! Just looking t this cake is making #JohnnyHungy! But let’s all sing a Happy Birthday to Brodie Junior! A one, a two, a skiddily diddily doo! Happy Birthday to You~! But then Luther and Serpentico crash the party! They don’t care about birthdays! AEW is becoming a DAYCARE CENTER!

Luther tells “Punky Brewster,” if he wants to come out on AEW Dark and talk smack on him and how he looks stupid with the ball on his head…! Fans chant “You Look Stupid!” Well first, Luther’s face is perfectly symmetrical! And second, Negative One has all these halfwits in masks and with their jagged teeth, THEY look stupid! Chaos Project does not like kids, and does not like them! They’re going to RUIN Brodie’s birthday! The Dark Order fires back with fists! But Jack Evans and Angelico hurry out to reinforce their tag partners! Here comes Hangman! Hangman LEAPS off the stage and onto everyone! The Dark Order cheers, but is Hangman really joining up with them?

The bell rings and Silver stalks Angelico in the ring. Alex Reynolds joins in, they double whip and flapjack EUROUPPER! Cover, but Evans breaks it in time!

Cover, ONE! Luther tags Serpentico in, and he is the SNAKEMAN weapon, scoop slam senton! Serpentico staggers up, tags Evans, and then Luther uses Evans as a weapon for another scoop slam senton! Tag to Angelico, and Angelico holds Silver there, for Luther to BULLDOG SPLASH Angelico onto him! Cover, TWO!

Angelico drags Silver up, bumps him off buckles, then tags Serpentico in. Serpentico throws hands on Silver, snapmares and KICKS him! Fans rally as Serpentico fish hooks Silver into a chinlock. Silver endures, the ref reprimands the hooks but Silver fights up to throw body shots. Serpentico throws haymakers back and then has Silver in a corner. Serpentico whips corner to corner and Silver hits buckles. Serpentico runs in but Silver FLAPJACKS him to buckles! Serpentico fixes his head but runs into a BOOT! Tag to Hangman! Hangman rallies on Chaos Project and TH2 with forearms and BOOTS! SPINEBUSTER for Evans!

Fans fire up with Hangman as he runs at Angelico to corner clothesline! Then one for Serpentico, one for Evans, then back to Serpentico. Serpentico SUPERKICKS, but he leaps into an OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Cover, but TH2 breaks it! Now a brawl breaks out again! The Dark Order throws TH2 out, Silver whips Reynolds in at Serpentico but Serpentico tosses him out! Silver runs in, but Serpentico puts him on the apron. Colt Cabana runs in but Serpentico avoids the Flying Apple. Cabana goes up, Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS Serpentico into Cabana’s FLYING ELBOW! Cabana sees Angelico getting in, and suckers him into Hangman’s FALL AWAY SLAM!

Hangman kips up and PLANCHAS but Evans moves! Evans is on the apron, but Hangman avoids his spinning kick! Silver is on the apron now and CANNONBALLS into Evans, to then EuroUpper Angelico against railing! Silver runs at Chaos Project but they dodge, only for Reynolds to FLY in! Direct hit, and the Dark Order set things up for Hangman, SUPER MOONSAULT! Fans are thunderous as Hangman drags Serpentico up and into the ring. Hangman tags Cabana in, Cabana scoop slams Serpentico, and then the Good, the Bad and the Hungy combine in a HUGE backpack SENTON! Cover, TWO!! Serpentico survives but Cabana keeps his focus.

Tag to Reynolds, Cabana goes up and the Beaver Boys hoist Serpentico up. Luther gets in and shoves Cabana down! Serpentico shoves Reynolds into Silver, roll through, SUPERKICK and basement DDT! Evans springboards in with the 450 SPLASH! Cover but Hangman breaks it in time! Evans throws Hangman out, then slingshots after him, into a POWEBOMB onto Angelico in the crowd! Luther drags Cabana up the ramp and to the stage! Oh no, the cake is unguarded! Wait, Negative One runs over and SMACKS Luther with the kendo stick! Luther glares at him, but then Cabana FLAPJACKS Luther onto the cake!

Back in the ring, Reynolds whips Serpentico into the corner, Silver ENZIGURIS, then they unleash the Beaver Boy Blitz! Forearm, enziguri, STUNNER, and Hangman adds the BUCK SHOT to the GERMAN! Bridging and jackknife, Hangman and the Dark Order win!

Winners: Hangman Page & The Dark Order, by pinfall

Luther is furious in the frosting as the Good, the Bad, the Hungy and the BOOM BOOM take the win! And to add on, Negative One says Serpentico tried to ruin the birthday. But that’s not how it works. KENDO STICK SMACK! “My birthday was three days ago, you idiots!” And he throws papers at Chaos Project! But Silver grabs a mic to address business. Hangman is so good and amazing! But also, he’s really handsome and has nice hair. Now, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Will Hangman #JoinDarkOrder? Silver is even on bended knee! Hangman’s answer is…? “I can’t.”

Wait what? No, stop the confetti! He said no! He said no! The Dark Order didn’t hear that until it’s pointed out by Hangman. As fun as all this has been, he tried saying this before but he was put in a tough spot. Hangman’s done the faction thing before, and it didn’t really work out for him. He’s sorry, but he has to decline. The Dark Order doesn’t understand, and now the good mood has been deflated. Will the Dark Order figure out how to get Hangman to change his mind? Or will they have to move on from this rejection and find someone else?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho and MJF!

Ahead of the Inner Circle Tag Team Challenge, Alex Marvez wants their thoughts. Please stop, your breath is worse than a rat orgy inside a running microwave. But MJF wants to be honest with Jericho. The last thing he wants to see is this match breaking up the Inner Circle. Isn’t Jericho a little worried about that? Jericho is NOT worried. Tonight will be something that brings the group together and stronger than ever before. It is a promise, a pact, a gentlemen’s agreement of sexy hooligans to decide which combination moves forward to go after the AEW World Tag Team Championships!

No matter what happens, they have a deal that they will move on as a unit. Santana & Ortiz VS Sammy & Hager VS Jericho & MJF! And guess who wins tonight, Marvez! Jericho? Exactly, you stupid idiot! MJF agrees with Jericho, this will make the Inner Circle stronger. They are Christopher and Maxwell, they are better than you and you know it, because they are the next AEW World Tag Team Champions! But will that be the case when this is their first outing as a tag team?

 

AEW returns to Tony Schiavone in the ring!

“It was one week ago in this ring that Darby Allin retained the TNT Championship in a sensational win over Brian Cage of Team Taz!” We also saw Sting show up to help Darby out against Team Taz, too! Sting wants to say something, perhaps congratulate Darby, so here is… STIIIIING~! The snow, the crow, and the icon! And now, the TNT Champion, Darby Allin! The Relentless Face of TNT makes his way out with belt in hand. He joins Schiavone and Sting in the ring and fans cheer. Schiavone hands the mic to Sting and Sting says, “First of all, I want to say that there’s something that reminds me about me in you, and I kinda like it.” Darby is a great wrestler, and Sting wants to be the first to publicly congratulate him as being our TNT Champion.

Second, Sting wants everyone to understand that he wasn’t here to interrupt last week. He just wanted to keep things fair as Darby defended his title. But from somewhere, Taz is on the mic and he’s telling Sting to shut up! Team Taz is on the titantron and Taz says “fair fight, my ass!” Sting had a baseball bat, he storms out during the TNT title match, and he attacks Ricky Starks! Darby, during that match, had his leather belt and tried to hogtie Cage’s legs like he’s some piece of cattle! They fight dirty! They fight street style! Team Taz are “gentlemen.” Taz grew up in the streets, do your homework! These men are street fighters!

Starks speaks and says if we’re talking about street fighters, here’s the thing! Sting and Darby couldn’t see them in the streets! The deal is, Team Taz should take this to the streets! If Darby and Sting want to get nasty, they want to get hardcore, then the ball’s in their court! What you got?! Darby looks to Sting and Sting says something to Darby. Darby takes the mic and says if Team Taz wants to take this to the streets, “be careful what you wish for, because it just might happen.” Will Taz and team regret trying to intimidate these two fearless fighters?

 

The Elite is having a meeting, but the Young Bucks aren’t part of it?

Alex Marvez tells Matt & Nick Jackson about it, which is weird because this is Kenny Omega’s place. First that eBay collector guy and now this? Well fine, Marvez, come with them to the meeting. The Bucks walks in through the backdoor and Michael Nakazawa is being the greeter? Nakazawa escorts the Bucks into the dining room then into the den. What in the world? Omega has an oil painting of himself and Don Callis as muscular men in denim jeans, and only denim jeans. Omega is one thing but Callis is nowhere NEAR that ripped. Yikes.

But Callis enters first, and says that is a gift for Omega’s birthday. But his birthday’s in October. Well it’s never too early or too late to shop for the God of Pro-Wrestling! Have they not gotten anything for him yet? What kind of friends are you? Just kidding. Oh right, just like how last week, he punked them out on national television with that bait ‘n’ switch! Callis says that it was a choice from production, he meant to tell them but he apologizes for that. Where is Omega? Well Omega is unavailable for today’s meeting. At his own house? Omega is very busy. Too busy to talk to his friends?

Well what number do they have in their phones? Callis had Omega change numbers a couple weeks ago, there are a lot of fans, marks, and “old friends” coming out of the woodwork, blowing up the phone. They didn’t get the memo? Well they don’t need it, they can always come by, he and Omega are always happy to see them. But it’s good that they’re all here so we can clear the air. These three are the ones who love Omega the most, after all. Callis is family, and the Bucks are… old friends. So let’s chat. Marvez, why are you here? Nakazawa, please escort Marvez to the dungeon. What? Not a real dungeon, just the training room Omega uses. And take the cameraman. Not the camera, though, Callis won’t let him shoot any more of Omega’s house. Off to the dungeon with them.

And now they have privacy! The Bucks are good, right? How long have they known Omega? 12 years. Wow, 12 years, a tremendous investment. They need to recognize that. But everyone’s very busy, no time to spend like they used to, so Callis has something he is sure they’ll like. Is he writing them a check? Callis says this will compensate them for their investment in the friendship. They’re just trying to keep contact with the “old crew” to a minimum. Wow, see, this would be a good amount, except the Bucks made that much just last week. Oh, right, the merch! Well here, Callis will add in some. Is this a bribe? No…!

THE AUDACITY to think you can buyout a 12 year FRIENDSHIP…! Callis wasn’t on those 14 hour bus rides in Tokyo! He wasn’t there for the missed birthdays and anniversaries! Where was “Uncle Creepy” Callis? Callis says he was always there. Sorry it’s gone this way, but if you want to talk facts, the Bucks were great friends to Omega, but now they just hold him back! Oh really?! Yes, the hanger-on from the old neighborhood types. Omega is too nice but Callis isn’t.

Y’know, speaking of where this money is coming from, the Bucks used to work at that company Callis is VP of. And so they know these checks are no good. They rip up the checks and Callis accuses them of being bloodsuckers! Oh THEY are the bloodsuckers?! Callis is manipulating Omega! They’re backing Callis up and scaring him a bit, and the camera gets shut off. What is going to happen to The Elite with Callis hanging around?

 

Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS “Pretty” Peter Avalon!

Does the American Nightmare match up with the requirements for the Pageant Provocation? Perhaps, but will Avalon consider giving Cody a pass? Will Avalon’s young win streak be ended his first night back on Dynamite?

The bell rings and Avalon rushes at Cody, but into a dragon sleeper! CROSS RHODES!! Cody would cover, but JADE CARGILL walks out on stage! She is keeping her distance, but Cody isn’t so sure. Avalon runs in and LOW BLOWS Cody during the distraction! Jade likes that and decides to leave now. Avalon kicks at Cody’s legs, stalks Cody around the ring and chop blocks him down! Avalon trips Cody up, stomps him down, and then drags Cody up to throw haymakers! Avalon CHOPS Cody, then CHPOS him again! Cody gets made and CHOPS back! Cody shows haymaker but Avalon protects his face. So Cody drops for the Rhodes Uppercut!

Cody goes to a corner, climbs up, but Avalon hits him first! Avalon throws hands, climbs up, and clubs away. Avalon brings Cody up for a SUPERPLEX! Fans fire up as both men writhe and a standing count begins! Cody goes to the apron and Avalon pursues as fans rally behind him. Avalon hobbles after Cody and kicks a leg, but Cody throws Avalon into the railing! Cody throws haymakers, but hobbles into a throat chop! Avalon CHOPS Cody then puts him in the ring. Cody gets Avalon’s leg but Avalon clubs him. Avalon suplexes and covers, ONE! Avalon stomps Cody then clubs him more. Cody shoves Avalon and double clotheslines collide!

Another standing count begins as both men are down. Fans rally up and duel, Cody drags Avalon up but Avalon rakes the eyes! AEW goes to picture in picture as Avalon puts Cody in a corner.

Avalon CHOPS Cody again, CLUBS him, then stomps the leg. Avalon CLAWS Cody on the back, but Cody CLAWS Avalon on the front! Avalon stomps Cody down, then drops a knee! Avalon has the leg and yanks on it, then stomps and heel hooks it! Cody endures but Avalon turns him over for a Half Crab! Avalon pulls hard but Cody fights his way to the ropebreak! The ref counts, Avalon lets off at 3, and Cody trips Avalon up! Cody gets the leg now, but Avalon kicks him away! Cody staggers, Avalon CHOPS him, then wraps the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Cody elbows Avalon away, then gets to the apron. Avalon is after Cody with a stretch against the ropes!

Avalon lets Cody go to club him again, but Cody ROCKS him with forearms! Cody slingshots to sunset flip, TWO! Avalon CLOBBERS Cody with a clothesline! Avalon looms over Cody, drags him up, and scoops him for a slam! Avalon rains down rights, then scrapes his soles off Cody’s face! Avalon sits Cody up to KICK him, then drops more knees! AEW returns to single picture as Avalon climbs. Avalon MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Cody moves! Fans fire up and Cody throws forearms. Avalon headlocks, Cody powers out and tries to hurdle but his leg can’t get him up! Cody and Avalon collide, then Avalon throws Cody out hard! Avalon runs and DIVES, and Cody ends up in the crowd!

Avalon drags Cody back into the ring, drags him up by his weight belt, and blows a kiss. Avalon runs, into a CUTTER! Cody fires up and fans fire up with him as he whips Avalon, then follows to rally with forearms and lariats! Cody whips, Avalon reverses but Cody goes up and over to SPINNING POWERSLAM! Cody slaps himself to get back in this, and off comes the weight belt! Free souvenir! Avalon staggers, Cody trips him up and steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Avalon endures, turns things over and puts the pressure onto Cody! Cody turns it back over and Avalon feels the pain, but then Avalon SLAPS Cody! That was a mistake and Cody shows slap, but Avalon taps out just to avoid it!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by submission

Cody holds on to make Avalon pay for it, but lets him go soon enough. Cargill’s presence almost cost Cody, but the Prince of Pro-Wrestling managed to fight through the pain. Will Cody have to be more careful from now on?

 

FTR speaks.

Tully Blanchard knows the rankings just came out. They are NUMBER ONE and that is where they need to be. But now, they need the belts. Those are the bragging rights! But then in barges Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy says he’s sick of this. If FTR is the best- Cash Wheeler says they ARE the best. JB gets heated, but he says the FTR might be the best. Being in there taught JB something about himself. It showed him that he could beat either one of them. FTR laughs at that and Dax Harwood says he shouldn’t be fooled by the “salt ‘n’ pepper.” Dax isn’t some fly-by-night wrassler JB plays with in the ring. Dax will fight him next week, 1v1. He doesn’t need Cash and Tully to win, either.

Oh is that so? Let Dax finish. Then let them all be ringside, but Luchasaurus will make sure no one gets involved. JB and Dax shake on it, but will this really be a gentlemen’s agreement with Tully lurking?

 

Jon Moxley VS ???

The Maniac is back in action tonight, determined to fight his way back to the AEW World Championship and his revenge on Kenny Omega! Will Moxley show that there’s no stopping him, only delaying the inevitable?

AEW returns and Moxley’s opponent turns out to be the Freak Beast Wrecking Ball, Nick Comoroto! A big opponent for his first match back, but Moxley doesn’t back down from a fight! The bell rings, Comoroto shoves but Moxley headbutts him! Moxley fires off forearms and stomps Comoroto in the corner! Then CHOPS him, and CHOPS him again! And again! Moxley whips corner to corner, Comoroto reverses but Moxley dodges in the corner to clothesline! Moxley keeps moving, but leaps into Comoroto’s arms and a POWERSLAM! Comoroto drags Moxley up to elbow him to a corner, then stomps him in return! Comoroto digs his knee in but lets up at 4.

Comoroto whips Moxley corner to corner, then hits a big back elbow! Comoroto scoops Moxley for a BACKBREAKER! Moxley sits up but Comoroto drags him up for another BACKBREAKER, and makes it a bend across his knee! Moxley endures, pries the fingers and bends them back! Comoroto lets go to clutch his hand, and Moxley BITES Comoroto’s forehead! Comoroto knees low, scoops Moxley but Moxley slips out to throw forearms! Comoroto throws them back but Moxley knees then runs, but into an USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up as Moxley goes to a corner. Comoroto runs corner to corner, but only gets buckles!

Moxley and Comoroto are both down but fans rally up! Moxley is up first, and KICKS away on Comoroto’s chest! Again and again, then he reels Comoroto in for a suplex. Comoroto is too big, he shoves Moxley away but Moxley gets around to waistlock, shove and GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Moxley runs, but Comoroto withstands the lariat! Comoroto fireman’s carries but Moxley slips around to SLEEPER HOLD! Comoroto falls, he is OUT! Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The big man gave Moxley a big fight, but Moxley wouldn’t have it any other way! Moxley gets the mic and points to the fans before saying, “Now, anything can happen on Wednesdays on AEW Dynamite. And things are getting crazy~ around here, I can’t keep track of everything.” Moxley can’t tell who is in Bullet Club, The Elite, who’s from Impact or whatever, but that doesn’t matter. Omega thought he would bring his frat brothers to AEW and they’d watch his back. “Kenny, all’s you did was make it more fun. All you did was make it more interesting. More bodies, bigger brawls, more blood, more violence. More necks to break, more limbs to snap, I love this!”

The bigger the mountain, the sweeter it is at the top! Moxley will climb back up because you can bring the whole city of Nashville to Jacksonville, you can bring up whoever from Mexico or Japan, it remains the same. “All roads in professional wrestling lead through ME!!” Has Moxley just declared war not only on The Cleaner, but all the promotions willing to play ball with AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston and The Fam.

For the first time ever, next week on Dynamite, Kingston will face Lance Archer 1v1 in the ring. How does he prepare for someone like Archer, or anyone he’s never faced before? Kingston doesn’t prepare, he just fights. And Kingston has been having a really hard time lately. PAC beat Kingston but Kingston is moving on to Archer. Kingston has to move on. But then Archer comes in, and Jake the Snake barely keeps him back! Archer says Pac beat Kingston, but Archer will end him! Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, a very simple concept. Kingston says he can go on with his poetry, but Archer says all Kingston ever does is shout. If Kingston wants to shut Archer up, do it in the ring! Kingston says it’s 1v1! Then he tells Jake to keep his boy under control.

Jake says Kingston’s one to talk, with his little baby chicken shit family. If Kingston wants to do something, do it face to face without his little butt kissers ringside! Deal! A true 1v1 match is coming, will the Mad King be able to stand after facing the Murderhawk Monster?

 

AEW returns as Kenny Omega arrives.

Alex Marvez is there waiting and asks Omega about his thoughts on what we saw at the beach. Omega wasn’t at the beach, so no comment. Well, AEW Media was with The Young Bucks and Don Callis at Omega’s house. They were at his house? Is nothing sacred? Get out of his way! Omega finds Callis in the locker room and shows off his new outfit. Whoa, what happened to Callis? Oh, the glasses? No, what’s under the glasses. Callis says Omega shouldn’t get upset, Callis had a “little accident” earlier. It’s not as bad as it looks. Who did that? No, it’s not about- Ow, don’t touch. Callis says this is not what he wants for Omega, Omega can’t lose focus right now.

Omega keeps asking but Callis says it’s fine. Nick & Matt- Uh oh. Omega can’t believe the Bucks did this. Marvez asks if Callis is saying the Bucks did that to him. What is he doing in here? Go away! Is there no privacy here? Omega still wants answers on what happened! We know that the camera went off, but did the Bucks really assault Callis?

 

Six Man Tag: Matt Sydal & Top Flight VS #HardyParty!

One of the best high flyers ever teams up with the coldest tag team in the game for an incredible combination! But manager “Big Money” Matt teams with his guys in Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy! Will Hardy and Private Party make their partnership worth their one-sided deal?

The trios sort out and Dante Martin starts against Quen. They circle, and Dante offers a handshake. Hardy doesn’t want Quen to take it but Quen says it’s fine, and they shake hands. Quen and Dante circle, tie up, and Quen arm-drags Dante but Dante arm-drags back. Quen blocks the hip toss to knee low and cartwheel, but Dante slips free to run and roll off the back, then dropkick Quen down! Darius gets in as Kassidy does and dropkicks him down! Hardy rushes in but into DOUBLE DROPKICKS! Fans fire up with Top Flight as Dante tags Sydal in. They focus on Quen with double CHOPS, and then a whip. Sydal and Top Flight pull off a TRIPLE HURDLE, then a pass to a WINDMILL KICK!

Dante gets a boost from Darius, they rebound off ropes and Dante flips Darius onto Sydal! Darius flips back but he’s not legal, Sydal has to cover. So Sydal adds a STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Quen hurries away and Hardy tells him to get serious here. Quen takes off his jacket and throws it at Sydal! Quen then fires off on Sydal, and tags in Kassidy. Kassidy sucker punches Top Flight then mugs Sydal with Quen! Private Party double forearm, kick and run, but Top Flight gets in and slides with Sydal to TRIPLE ROLLING TAKEDOWN, into a TRIPLE CRAB! Hardy is furious but the ref counts and Top Flight lets off their parts. Hardy gets in and DECKS Sydal!

Quen clubs away on Sydal, then stomps him down! Quen brings Sydal up, bumps him off buckles, then tags in Kassidy. Private Party mugs Sydal as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hardy sneaks in a shot before Kassidy CHOPS Sydal, but Sydal CHOPS back Kassidy kicks low, pushes Sydal down and stomps him in the corner! Tag to Hardy, Kassidy digs his boots in, then Hardy does the same. The ref counts, Hardy lets off at 4, then RAMS into Sydal! And again! And again! Hardy brings Sydal up, scoops him, and LAWN DARTS him on the buckles! Cover, TWO! Hardy keeps on Sydal and ROCKS him with a right! Hardy whips, and catches Sydal to a sleeper! Sydal flails, reaches, but Hardy keeps him from the corner. Sydal fights up with body shots and breaks free with a jawbreaker! Hardy still grabs Sydal to drag him back to the corner.

Tag to Quen, Hardy Party mugs Sydal, and Quen bumps Sydal off buckles. Quen stomps Sydal then drags him up in a facelock. Sydal fights his way towards his corner but Quen pushes him back the other way. Tag to Kassidy and Private Party mugs Sydal more. Kassidy drags Sydal up and rams elbows into him! Tag to Quen, Kassidy CHOPS Sydal, then is the step stool for Quen to launch into a splash! Quen is the step now, Kassidy runs in, PARTY in Motion! Hardy tags in and clotheslines Sydal down! Hardy taunts Sydal and slaps him around, but Sydal KICKS back! And CHOPS! AEW returns to single picture as Sydal CHOPS Hardy more!

Hardy pokes Sydal in the eye! Then tags in Kassidy, and they mug Sydal more. Kassidy snapmares Sydal and wraps on a chinlock. Fans rally as Sydal endures, but Kassidy keeps Sydal away from ropes. Kassidy grinds Sydal down but Sydal fights up. Kassidy shifts to a facelock then tags in Quen. Private Party double suplex Sydal, but Sydal slips out! Sydal DECKS Hardy, and DOUBLE RANAS Private Party! Hot tag to Darius! Darius DECKS Kassidy, uppercuts Quen, goes up and over and sends Kassidy into Quen, then comes back to ENZIGURI Quen down!

Darius DECKS Hardy, Sydal throws Kassidy out and Top Flight focuses on Quen. They put Quen up top, climb up together, but Hardy shoves Darius down hard! The ref and Hardy argue, Kassidy has a chair and he JAMS Dante in the ribs! Dante is down, Quen and Kassidy realize what they’ve done, and like it! Quen hits a SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Cover, Hardy Party wins!

Winners: Hardy Party, by pinfall

Quen and Kassidy are buying into Big Money Matt’s “by any means necessary” policy! After all, they are #1 contenders to the Impact World Tag Team Championships. Darius and Sydal get in their face about it, though, and Hardy gives the nod. Private Party beats down Darius and Sydal! They hammer away on Sydal and drive knees into Darius, and then feed Darius to a TWIST OF FATE! Sydal gets a TWIST OF FATE, too! Will this new edge be what makes Private Party into champions?

 

MJF and Wardlow check with The Inner Circle.

MJF tells the cameraman to keep his distance before he and Wardlow walk in. “Oh, the bearer of bad news~!” Ortiz takes a guess: MJF wants the rest of them to be ringside when he and Jericho go after the tag titles, right? No, no, but MJF does get the hostility. Take it from him, if it were up to him, he isn’t so sure this match would be happening. Surely they all feel the same way. But, Chris is the leader, and as such, what he says goes. Sammy Guevara says if he had things his way, a lot of this wouldn’t be happening.

Hager and the others keep Sammy back but MJF says they’ve been doing this for months. MJF loves Hager, Santana and Ortiz, and even Sammy. They’re family, and they have to be family in order to succeed. Now, MJF respects Sammy because Sammy isn’t afraid to speak his mind. But can Sammy just understand that MJF isn’t some sociopath. MJF wants what’s best for the group, and so do they. So let’s all just go out there, have this match, and settle it. Everyone else fist bumps with MJF, but not Sammy. They’re not there yet. That’s fine. MJF says he’ll see them all out there, but is Sammy onto something?

 

Leyla Hirsch VS Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian, Miro & “Charles” Taylor!

#LEGIT is back in action, and up against the Superbad Bride-to-be! Freshly Squeezed, Orange Cassidy, can only watch from the crowd as his best friend is forced to be the BUTLER to the Best Man and the Superbad super couple. The suffering of “Charles” aside, will Ford at least be in a good mood with a win?

The bell rings, Ford and Hirsch circle, tie up, and go around. They break, and Hirsch smirks as she and Ford circle again. They tie up, Hirsch gets a waistlock but Ford switches. Hirsch hooks a leg to bring Ford down and then drags Ford around by it to get a waistlock. They roll around and Hirsch holds on tight to then float to a facelock. Ford gets up, Hirsch gets around for another takedown, lateral press, TWO! Ford facelocks but Hirsch wrenches out, only for Ford to headlock. Hirsch powers Ford to ropes, the ref calls for a break, and Hirsch honors it. But Ford kicks her leg out! Ford reels Hirsch into another headlock but Hirsch powers out, only for Ford to run her over!

But Hirsch kips up! Ford pie faces Hirsch out of annoyance, then runs, but Hirsch bypasses, drops, but Kip makes butler Charles trip Hirsch up! Ford handsprings but into an ARMBAR!! Ford scrambles, reaches, and gets a ropebreak with a foot! Hirsch lets go at 4 and then glares at Kip. Kip is making short jokes but is running away, too, and Ford BOOTS Hirsch down! Ford drags Hirsch up to throw her into railing! Kip mockingly reels in the big fish as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ford drags Hirsch up to RAM her into apron! Ford puts Hirsch in, drags her up and fisherman’s for the suplex! Ford drags Hirsch back up, whips her hard into a corner, and then fires off forearms!

Ford lets off at 4, Hirsch gets to the apron, but runs in to go up and over and drop knees on Hirsch on the apron!

Ford soaks up the heat before going back into the ring. Hirsch kicks back from the mat but Ford CLUBS her down, and AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Ford is covering Hirsch, TWO! Fans fire up for Hirsch but Ford drags her by a leg. Hirsch kicks Ford away but Ford rolls her to her feet to CLUB her on the back! Hirsch just gets mad and ROCKS Ford with a forearm! Ford forearms back but Hirsch fires off! Hirsch runs, blocks the leg lariat and makes Ford to the splits, to then KNEE Ford down! And DEAD LIFT GERMANS! Ford flounders to a corner, Hirsch runs in corner to corner, METEORA, to a SWINGING DROPKICK! Cover, TWO!! Ford survives but Hirsch keeps her focus, and Cassidy likes(?) what he sees.

Hirsch climbs, but Ford trips her up! Ford runs and handsprings, but the ax kick misses! Hirsch CLOBBERS Ford, drags her to a drop zone, then runs in, up the corner, and LEAPS ONTO KIP AND CHUCK! Fans fire up as Hirsch eliminates the distracts, but then Ford BOOTS her on the return! Cover, and Kip keeps Hirsch’s leg down!! Ford wins!!

Winner: Penelope Ford, by pinfall

Miro tells “Charles” to get in the ring so we can all get an update. Miro tells “Charles” that he could be mean, but he’s not because he’s a nice guy. But Miro needs Charles to let go of the past so he can reach a bright future. Stand up straight. So Charles needs to look at Cassidy and tell him that MIRO is his best friend now! Chuck doesn’t want to but Miro tells him he has to. Cassidy stands up and Chuck takes the mic. Miro and Kip make sure he looks at Cassidy as he says it. “Miro is my best friend now.” Kip hugs Chuck and Miro gives a big thumbs up, and Cassidy walks away. Will Chuckie T be able to make it to Beach Break without breaking?

 

Something’s happening backstage!

The Good Brothers are attacking one of the Lucha Brothers! Karl Anderson stomps Penta El Zero M, then Doc Gallows drags him up to throw into the garage door! Omega comes over now, he and the Good Brothers mug Penta, and choke him using a power cord!! Omega takes off one of his fancy boots and JAMS the point into Penta’s eyes! “That’s what the Biz Clizz does!” But will they pay for going after Penta without Fenix and Pac around?

 

AEW has a lot planned for next week!

Not only will Eddie Kingston take on Lance Archer without any of their cohorts ringside, and not only will Dax Harwood take on Jungle Boy with all their teammates ringside, but Cody Rhodes will finally respond to comments made by Shaq! Plus, the Dark Order will try to move on from Hangman Page’s rejection in another 8 Man Tag, but against The Elite! Will the Young Bucks and Good Brothers be able to get along like back in the day? Or will the issues with Kenny Omega allow Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Alex Reynolds and John Silver to cash in big on both the AEW AND Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions?

 

Plus, some news for AEW Beach Break!

With AEW Revolution only a month away, there will be a Tag Team Battle Royal to name the Young Bucks’ challengers! Which duo will be the last ones standing to take on Matt & Nick Jackson? Will the Inner Circle’s representative be in that battle royal? And speaking of Beach Break, the main event was going to be Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers VS Death Triangle, but after what the “Biz Clizz” did to Penta, Pac and Fenix will be teaming with JON MOXLEY!! Will Moxley get a semblance of revenge on The Cleaner in just two weeks?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

It is still in the works, but AEW is going to put together a WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP Eliminator Tournament! Talent from both America and Japan are going to compete in a SIXTEEN PARTICIPANT bracket! Who will prove themselves worthy of taking on the Full Metal Warrior, Hikaru Shida?

 

The Inner Circle Tag Team Challenge: Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS Sammy-Hager VS Y2MJF!

Santana and Ortiz thought they were going to be THE team in the faction from day one. The Spanish God accused Le Champion of being a #TagTeamSlut! But will all of the issues be put aside when the dust clears?

In this style of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are active but anyone can tag off one of the opponents. They sort out and MJF starts with Sammy. Sammy gets in MJF’s face but MJF says this is just in good competition. MJF circles with Sammy, but MJF “realizes” Jericho probably wants to tie up with Sammy so he tags out. Jericho and Sammy circle as the former Le Sex Gods, and they tie up. Jericho puts Sammy in the corner, shows haymaker, but lets off with a handshake. They circle, fans rally up and the two tie up. Jericho wrenches, wristlocks, but Sammy flips through and wrenches back. Jericho SLAPS Sammy so Sammy ROCKS and CHOPS Jericho!

Say it ain’t so! MJF said this would be all in good sportsmanship but that was the exact opposite! And AEW has to wrap up for the night, what will be the fallout of this frantic finish!?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode! We got a great start with the birthday celebration for Brodie Jr. and the 8 Man Tag. Hangman’s rejection being a surprise to the Dark Order was great, with the prepared celebration now being for nothing. This will be an interesting twist to their story, especially with that huge 8 Man announced for next week. Also, Negative One Brodie got to have some more fun, getting on the case of the Dark Order henchmen and smacking Serpentico with a kendo stick. We got a lot of good set up for next week, the go-home to Beach Break. Dax VS JB with everyone ringside and Kingston VS Archer with no one ringside will both be good steps in progressing story, and both could probably go either way.

Cody VS Avalon going from squash to an actually strong match was a great twist, and all while plugging the story of Jade and Shaq VS the Nightmare Family. I have a feeling that Cody’s response to Shaq will set up something for AEW Revolution as Beach Break is too soon and anything else would be just too long to wait for. Sting and Darby didn’t get much of a segment since Team Taz interrupts, but I like the idea that Sting’s first bit of action back will likely be a Street Fight/No Holds Barred situation, which perhaps helps with the fact that he hasn’t wrestled in years and being loose and freeform with it will actually hide that he’s rusty.

Hardy Party VS Top Flight & Sydal was a really good match, with a lot of great character work from Quen and Kassidy. They did become Impact Tag Team Championship contenders on the newest episode of Impact, but now they’re turning from the fun loving Faces into the dastardly Heels Hardy wants them to be. This could get them over the hump here in AEW, but who knows how it’ll turn out on Impact. They won’t win the titles, though, Gallows & Anderson are just too good, and there’s a lot for them to still do in the overall Omega story, where being the tag champions might help give a bit more weight to what happens.

Moxley VS Comoroto was very good, especially for Comoroto’s first showing on Dynamite. The story with Omega and the rest of Bullet Club/Elite was great stuff, especially Callis’ part with the Bucks. It really seems to work with how, between AEW and Impact, this new Cleaner Omega is getting a big ego and is basically going Hollywood without going to Hollywood. The 8 Man Tag next week is going to be really good just on character points as the Bucks and Good Brothers have been friends just as long, if not longer, than with Omega, but are taking sides on this issue. Then the beat down on who I’m pretty sure was fake Penta works to get Moxley into the story, and the Beach Break main event is going to be great stuff.

Ford VS Hirsch was good but mostly used as the vehicle to Miro’s story with Chuck Taylor and Best Friends. Chuck was being forced to cheat on their behalf, and obviously didn’t mean what he said about him and Miro being friends. This just furthers the idea that Trent will return at Beach Break where he and Cassidy ruin the Superbad wedding and then Chuck is free of the butler duties so he can get revenge on Miro, too. I really like the news of the AEW Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament to not just parallel the men’s tournament from late 2020, but also to finally get AEW’s Women’s Division going. Plus, it strengthens the bond with Stardom as many of the women who went between the two promotions are already reacting on social media and will surely be part of the tournament.

Then the main event, the Triple Threat Tag, for not actually being that long of a match, was a spectacular match. The build up all night was really good, and MJF sure did make it seem like Jericho was to blame for the whole thing. Probably hints at MJF trying to usurp the role as leader in the Inner Circle from him. Commentary did a great job pointing out that MJF was letting everyone else wrestle for the first part of the match, and then he ended up not having much of a choice in the second half. It really did feel like any one of the teams could’ve taken this, but in the end it was still Y2MJF winning because of MJF’s craftiness. I’m wondering if participate in Beach Break’s tag team battle royal since MJF has history of winning the Dynamite Diamond Ring battle royals.

My Score: 9.4/10
