Chicago is Raw!

Survivor Series’ four-day weekend ends with Monday! And everyone on the Raw roster surrounds the ring. Seth Rollins gets in the ring for this Raw “Town Hall Meeting.” Rollins takes the mic and says to the fans chanting CM Punk that he tried to get him back, but he’s sitting behind a desk in LA. But this isn’t about Punk, this is about the Raw roster. Fans now chant “NXT! NXT!” because they won Survivor Series. Rollins will be the first to agree, NXT mopped the floor with Raw. Rollins can’t stand that, because just like everyone, he’s been a fan of Raw for life! Stone Cold, DX, all of them! To see what Raw has become breaks his heart. “This show is better than that!” And to his fellow superstars, this is harsh but needs to be said. “Last night at Survivor Series, you all sucked.” Wait, you? Not we?

Rollins is trying to right the ship, they all dropped the ball! They need to fix it! They went from being The A Show to the C Show! They need to Make Raw Great Again! Rollins believes in Raw, so he called this meeting. If anyone wants to speak their minds, speak. Maybe Randy Orton? The Viper ended up the weak link. Rollins is being real. If Orton has something to say, say it now. Orton doesn’t, and leaves. Fine, don’t be a leader! Rollins will stick his neck out for the brand instead of the veteran! In which case, Rollins turns to the women’s team captain. Charlotte Flair led the team into battle but she wasn’t even the last one standing. “And you call yourself a Flair?” Charlotte leaves, too! Rollins talks to the Authors of Pain, they should’ve been there. But seems they don’t care so maybe Raw shouldn’t care, either. Now the AoP storm off.

Rollins points out Rey Mysterio. Rollins wants to be honest. He let us all down. Fans boo Rollins but Rollins says he beat Lesnar twice but Mysterio couldn’t do it with the steel pipe and his “stupid kid” helping out. Maybe he’s not the same Rey they grew up with. Chicago is letting Rollins know what they think of him as Mysterio, and everyone leaves! What are they doing?! He’s doing the right thing! This is their show, they need to step up! Everyone’s thinking this stuff, but only one man has the guts to say anything. But then Kevin Owens stands up. Rollins lets everyone know, this is Mr. NXT. Well, this is an open forum, so Kevin can say what he needs to say. But Rollins knows Kevin will say Rollins is making it about himself. He’s not! This is from Rollins’ heart, okay? He LOVES Raw! The ropes, the canvas, the locker room! He works day in and day out to make it better! Rollins eats, sleeps and breathes Raw to make it the best show possible!

But what does Kevin do? Just shows up like a “lazy piece of crap” and doesn’t do a thing. Kevin wants Rollins’ spot? Well Rollins tells Kevin that he will never be Rollins. Wait, no, he’s not meaning to insult Kevin. He’s just saying this is the right thing to do. Kevin gives Rollins a STUNNER! That’s all Kevin has to say. Will that Stunner drive some sense into Rollins?


Backstage interview with a seething Seth Rollins.

The Architect didn’t accomplish what he hoped. He was trying to get Raw on track but no one wants to hear it? Kevin’s going to learn the hard way! They’re having a match! Rollins makes the challenge, but will he be able to correct course by force?


Bobby Lashley w/ Lana VS Titus O’Neil!

The Rocky Mountain Machine was not with Raw for Survivor Series, perhaps because he’s been too busy with the Ravishing Russian. But can Lashley focus on the Real Deal?

Before the bell, Raw shares footage of someone serving Rusev another restraining order to keep him away again! The Bulgarian Brute is getting real tired of this, but what can he do?

The bell rings, Lana gives Lashley a good luck kiss but fans chant for “Rusev Day!” Lashley circles with Titus and they tie up. Lashley powers Titus to a corner, but Titus dodges the sucker punch to give haymakers and a CHOP! Titus whips but Lashley reverses to wrench and elbow. Lashley runs, into a CHOP! Titus runs in, but into a SLAM! Lashley got Titus way up! But wait, Rusev is running down the ramp?! Legalities aside, Rusev wants revenge and goes after Lashley!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by disqualification

Rusev clubs away on Lashley! Fans are fired up but Lana is furious! Rusev MACHKA Kicks Lashley out of the ring! And then beats him down going up the ramp! Lana shouts, but Rusev throws Lashley into steel steps! The restraining order and possible arrest means NOTHING compared to beating “Bob” Lashley down! Rusev stalks Lashley but Lashley mule kicks back. Lashley hits back but so does Rusev! LARIAT! Rusev throws off the tracksuit jacket to throw Lashley into the LED wall! Lashley flounders towards the announce desk, Rusev bounces him off it. And off comes the cover! Fans are ready for this as Rusev throws Jerry Lawler’s chair away! Rusev punches Lashley onto the table then tells Lana to stay back now. “This is NOT about you!”

Rusev climbs up but here comes Chicago PD! Rusev is cuffed for violating the restraining order, and Lana shouts that this is what Rusev gets! But Rusev still has his shoulders, and he RAMS Lashley off the stage!! Chicago is thunderous for Rusev as even more police restrain him! Lana is shouting, but Rusev boots girders over onto Lashley! Lana is freaking out and Rusev is smiling! Rusev is bad, but is it only going to get badder?


Raw shares footage from commercial.

Lashley needed to be stretchered out after the stage pieces fell on him. Lana was aghast the entire time, and left with Lashley and the medics. What damage did Rusev do to the Rocky Mountain Machine?


Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins VS The Authors of Pain!

Rollins called out Akam and Rezar for being absent despite all the talk. Now they are here, and ready to wreck the Major Bros! Is this only going to be the start of a new chapter for the AoP?

Hawkins starts with Akam, and at the bell, Hawkins runs in, only to get tripped up. Akam grounds ‘n’ pounds and kicks away on Hawkins, then tags in Rezar. The AoP hit the Russian Leg Sweep Lariat, the Last Chapter! But then Rezar drags Ryder in and clubs away just because he can! The referee reprimands Rezar but he tags Akam. They each take a Major Bro, fireman’s carries, and DOUBLE Death Valley Drivers into corners! Then, going a big old school, SUPER COLLIDER!! The powerbomb sandwich is still not satisfactory as Rezar tags back in. Akam suplexes Hawkins up, powerbomb neckbreaker combo! Cover, The Authors of Pain win!

Winners: The Authors of Pain, Rezar by pinfall

This new chapter is as brutal as all the others! But what new ways of violence will the AoP show us as things roll on?


Akira Tozawa VS Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega!

The Stamina Monster came close to becoming a two-time Cruiserweight Champion, but no such luck. El Idolo wants to improve his own standings, and he doesn’t need luck when he has La Muneca by his side. Who wins in the aftermath of Survivor Series to move forward?

The bell rings, Tozawa shoves Almas but then dodges to hop up, only for Almas to powerbomb him down! Almas stomps away on Tozawa, but backs up at the ref’s count. Almas throws forearms into Tozawa, then CHOPS! Tozawa staggers away but Almas knees him hard in a corner. Almas stomps Tozawa more but Tozawa sits up. Almas is on his arm, but fans rally up for Tozawa. Tozawa fights out but Almas knees low. Almas suplexes, uno amigo. He gets up, but Tozawa blocks dos amigo to cradle! ONE, Tozawa runs, Almas pops him up again, but Tozawa huricanranas through! Then back kick, swing, slide under, dodge and SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! Almas is in the drop zone and Tozawa heads up high! But Almas trips Tozawa up and drags him down.

Zelina tells Almas to finish and Almas stomps a mudhole. Almas fires up and goes corner to corner, CIEN SHADOWS! But Almas doesn’t cover, he drags Tozawa up and into the hammerlock. LA SOMBRA! Cover, Almas wins!

Winner: Andrade Almas, by pinfall

He didn’t even need Zelina’s help this time! Will Almas rack up wins on his own to finally head for the top?


Aleister Black speaks.

Buddy Murphy must understand the “repercussions” of what he has done. Murphy knocked on Aleister’s door, but has a match tonight. Aleister is coming to collect what he is owed! Murphy’s mere presence means he is here to pick. A fight. With HIM! Is the Embodiment of the End finally getting that fight he’s been after?


Matt Hardy VS Buddy Murphy!

Don’t worry, you’re not looking back into the past! Matt Hardy IS back, and he’s ready to get back on track! But is the Aussie Juggernaut about to go extreme with Matt V1?

The bell rings and Murphy gets Hardy into a corner. Murphy rams his shoulder and throws hands and stomps! The ref backs Murphy off, Hardy kicks back! Hardy bumps Murphy off buckles, then more buckles. Hardy climbs up to rain down right hands, but Murphy tucks him in for a SUPERKICK! Hardy flops down and Murphy ramps him into a post! Murphy sneers as Hardy falls to the floor. Murphy goes out to fetch Hardy and club away. Murphy RAMS Hardy into barriers! Then into more barriers! Murphy smirks as he puts Hardy back in the ring. Chicago rallies for Hardy but Murphy climbs up. Murphy leaps, but Hardy gets under! Hardy comes back, SIDE EFFECT! But it proves a little double-edged. Fans rally up but Murphy is up first, only for Hardy to ROCK him with that right!

Hardy hits a corner clothesline, then another, but no bulldog. Murphy runs in but gets an elbow. Hardy boots from the corner then hops up, and fans fire up as Hardy hits a leaping elbow! Hardy calls for it, Murphy slowly gets up, “DELETE! DELETE!” Kick, but no Twist of Fate, KNEE TRIGGER! Murphy runs to knee trigger again! Murphy drags Hardy into AUSSIE-GOYE! Cover, Murphy wins!

Winner: Buddy Murphy, by pinfall

A bloody nose doesn’t even bother Buddy Murphy as he beats down a living legend! Murphy grabs a mic to call Aleister Black out! “I’ve come to pick, a fight, with-” The music hits, and here he comes! Murphy is suddenly fearful as Aleister rises from the shadows! Aleister storms his way to the ring, and gets right in! Murphy stands his ground, and then throws hands. But Aleister hits back, and ELBOWS hard! Aleister boots, then KNEE TRIGGERS Murphy! Murphy falls out of the ring, Aleister watches him flounder around. Murphy gets up, Aleister dares Murphy to get back in. The Best Kept Secret gets up on the apron, but then backs away. Murphy picked this fight, but he doesn’t look ready to end it here. When and where will this fight finally happen?


Backstage interview with Charlotte Flair.

The Queen of All Eras and the Empress of Tomorrow got “pretty heated” at Survivor Series. Regardless of the ending, was Charlotte really captain-like? Charlotte never said she was a team player, but she was the only one qualified to lead. And clearly, Asuka is still upset over the WrestleMania 34 defeat that ended her streak. Now Asuka uses the “heinous” green mist. But Charlotte will remind Asuka why she is the TEN-TIME Women’s Champion. The Queen and Empress go around one more time, but who will be ready for who?


WWE United States Championship: AJ Styles VS Humberto Carrillo!

The Phenomenal One didn’t win his Survivor Series Triple Threat, but he didn’t really lose it since Roderick Strong stole his pin on Shinsuke Nakamura. But Styles did lose the Six Man Tag against Randy Orton, Ricochet and his challenger, hence why we’re getting this match! Will Styles rebound and win to again deny Ultimo Ninja the gold?

The introductions are made, but the OC attack Carrillo at the ramp! Gallows and Anderson drag Carrillo up but Carrillo turns things around! He fights them off to BOOT Gallows and LEAP onto Anderson! But Gallows choke grips, and choke SLAMS Carrillo on the apron! Anderson throws Carrillo into the steel steps, then pulls the steps apart! Gallows drags Carrillo up, they give Carrillo MAGIC KILLER to the steps! Styles applauds his Good Brothers as they join him in the ring. Ricochet runs out as Styles says, “You’re welcome, Chicago.” Is Carrillo okay? No? Well damn, guess he can’t compete. Unfortunate, really. And speaking of unfortunate, wasn’t Ricochet a superhero? He didn’t save Carrillo in time, did he?

Ricochet can’t believe this is what the great AJ Styles has become. He has to have the OC attack someone who could take the title off him? That’s not what a champion is. Ricochet wants to challenge Styles now! Styles says nope. He signed up for Humberto Carrillo, and only Humberto Carrillo. So it’s not going to happen! But then Randy Orton appears? “Humberto might not be able to compete, AJ, but I can.” Besides, Chicago would love nothing more than Orton RKO Styles through the canvas. So will it be Ricochet or Orton Styles faces? Fans chant “RKO! RKO!” But Styles tells Orton that the last time they competed, it was in a bigger and better city, with bright lights, and during WrestleMania, and Styles still won. Styles has nothing to prove to guys he’s already beaten! It’s just not gonna happen!

But here comes Drew McIntyre! He has a solution to this problem. There is a man who hasn’t faced Styles before, who is “tall, dark, handsome, has a sexy accent,” and managed to defeat the Monster Among Men and the United Kingdom Champion! Chicago doesn’t deserve this match, but how about this? First-time-ever, AJ Styles VS Drew McIntyre, for the United States Championship! Styles tells “MacIntyre,” after stealing the show, Styles is sore. But wait, here comes Rey Mysterio! The King of Lucha may not be WWE World Champion, but if anyone is sore and banged up, Mysterio faced Brock Lesnar. And yet, he’s not complaining. Styles’ excuses, not wanting to defend against anyone. But Mysterio isn’t letting him cheat Chi Town out of a title match. Why not face the living legend?

Styles has had it! No one here has earned anything! They’re so spoiled! Out of principle, Styles again declines. Orton wants to get this straight, but Ricochet speaks up. As the new guy, he has an idea. These four should just have a Fatal 4 Way, and the winner moves on to face Styles for the title tonight! McIntyre likes his idea better, but Styles says Ricochet has had the dumbest idea ever! Though, Gallows actually thinks it’s a good idea. Anderson agrees. Styles is upset with his Good Brothers right now. But fine! They can all beat the crap out of each other and he’ll pick the bones! This star-studded contender’s match is happening, after the break!

WWE United States Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 4 Way: Ricochet VS Randy Orton VS Drew McIntyre VS Rey Mysterio!

Backstage interview with Kevin Owens.

The Prizefighter interrupts to take this himself. “Seth, listen to me very carefully.” Kevin was listening to Rollins earlier. That Rollins thinks he’s making WWE and Raw better, holding us all to higher standards. He says Kevin should try to be more. But the difference between them is that Kevin has known who he is since the first time he wrestled almost 20 years ago! He’s known who he is the entire time he’s in the WWE. He hasn’t tried to be something he’s not, even when others tell him to be. Kevin knows he is Kevin Owens, will always be Kevin Owens and is perfectly fine with that! But Rollins wants to be what he thinks this company needs him to be, and yet all he has done is become a “miserable, whiny, insufferable prick!” Maybe Kevin is “Mr. NXT,” but “Mr. Crossfit” is going to get a Stunner that turns Monday Night Rollins into the Kevin Owens Show!


Charlotte Flair VS Asuka w/ Kairi Sane!

The Queen and the Empress meet in 1v1 competition once again! Team Raw may have fallen apart, but Charlotte is not letting it bother her. But that mist did bother her, will she get payback for that? Or is she not ready for this mean, green, mist-spitting Asuka?

Erick Rowan VS Kyle Roberts!

The Big Red Behemoth still baby talks his little pet inside the cage. But we have yet to learn what that pet even is. The mystery aside, will Rowan wreck another opponent?

The bell rings and Roberts runs for it! But then, he spots the cage. Roberts takes a peek and it spooks him! Rowan grabs Roberts and throws him into steel steps! Rowan rips the steps apart in rage and then he stomps Roberts down! Rowan pops Roberts up for a powerbomb into the post! Rowan puts Roberts into the ring, and is furious with Roberts enough for an Iron Claw SLAM! But Rowan won’t stop, he gives Roberts ANOTHER! Cover, Rowan wins!

Winner: Erick Rowan, by pinfall

Rowan goes back to his precious little critter, but what is it about the “darling” thing that Rowan is so protective of?


The IIconics plug the WWE Black Friday sales!

Tonight only is Buy One T, get one for a DOLLAR! R-Truth comes by to help out. He is proof that this deal is a steal, because he already bought one Street Profits shirt, and bought an IIconics shirt for $1! This is a deal! This deal is a steal! And that WWE 24/7 Championship is REAL!? Truth gets away with it, and Peyton and Billie notice too late! Don’t let these deals pass you by like they did a chance to be co-champions!


Backstage interview with The OC.

What is going through Styles’ mind after losing the United States Championship? He tries to put it into words, but not even the Good Brothers know what to say. Styles takes a moment, grits his teeth, but eventually, he says, “Randy Orton.” The OC leave, but will they respond with actions rather than words next time we see them?


Backstage interview with Lana.

The Ravishing Russian’s husband Rusev is arrested and her boy toy Bobby Lashley is in the hospital. Rusev is a danger not only to himself but to those around him. Rusev is becoming obsessed! Though, who could blame him? But what happened to Lashley just proves Rusev should be sent back to Bulgaria! Either way, Lana is handling the trauma well, and will be okay. Thanks for asking. No one asked, but the question does have to be asked: will Rusev only come back for more revenge once released from county lock-up?


Seth Rollins VS Kevin Owens!

The Raw ra ra didn’t work the way Rollins hoped, and it was Kevin that stood up to shut Rollins up. Will Kevin do even more than that as Raw heads for TLC? Or will Rollins do what is “right” and get himself back on track?

Raw returns again as the bell rings. Kevin goes for a stunner but Rollins gets away. Kevin goes after him and they brawl on the outside! Kevin whips Rollins into barriers, then says, “Who’s the man now!” Kevin CHOPS Rollins and puts him into the ring. Rollins hits back and then builds speed, but runs into a forearm! Kevin gets in and CHOPS Rollins again. And again! Then whips corner to corner, but Rollins reverses. Kevin boots back then hops up to missile dropkick! Back senton added on, cover, TWO! Kevin has Rollins in a corner and runs in, but into a buckle complete shot! Rollins gets the leg to dragon screw Kevin down! Rollins goes after that same leg with a Half Crab! Kevin endures, turns it around, and pushes Rollins off. Kevin ducks Rollins’ clothesline to CHOP again!

Kevin fireman’s carries but Rollins slips out to boot back. Rollins goes up and over to run and Slingblade! Rollins kicks Kevin out of the ring, then builds speed, to DIVE! Direct hit and Kevin hits barriers! But Rollins goes again, another DIVE! Rollins puts Kevin in after the second tope, then aims from the corner. Springboard but Kevin gets under, and SUPERKICKS! Kevin has Chicago fired up but Rollins grabs a chair! Rollins doesn’t care about winning but the ref tells Rollins to stand down. Rollins is seething again as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more and Rollins has Kevin on the top rope! Kevin fights back, and throws Rollins down! Fans fire up as Kevin adjusts, SWANTON gets knees! Rollins covers, TWO! Rollins is frustrated, but he stomps Kevin down. Rollins down rights and lefts then gets Kevin in a chinlock. Fans boo and jeer but Rollins pulls Kevin back. Kevin endures and pries against the hold. Rollins fish hooks Kevin’s face! The ref reprimands but Rollins clubs Kevin down. Rollins stomps Kevin around, too, and has him in a corner. Kevin CHOPS back! Rollins snarls and CHOPS back! And again! And again! Rollins headbutts Kevin down, then drags him out to whip. Kevin grabs Rollins for the DDT! Both men are down but fans rally up. Rollins and Kevin stir and go to opposite ends. Kevin stands but Rollins follows and runs in. Kevin dodges the splash to go corner to corner, CANNONBALL!

Chicago fires up again as Kevin goes back up top! But Rollins bails out to the floor. So Kevin adjusts, to SWANTON off the apron! Kevin puts Rollins back in, climbs back up top, and FROG SPLASHES! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives but Kevin keeps his cool. Kevin mocks Rollins’ Burn It Down stomping, to whip Rollins. Rollins slips out of the pop up to kick and underhook! Kevin back drops but Rollins lands on his feet to boot back. Rollins hops up, BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO! But Rollins keeps Kevin close for a Falcon Arrow! Cover, TWO!! Rollins is frustrated even more as Kevin survives again. Fans rally up as Rollins sits up. Rollins does his “Burn It Down!” rallying stomps, Kevin rises, and Rollins runs in, but misses the stomp! Rollins rolls Kevin out of the stunner, TWO! But no stomp, POP-UP BOMB! Cover, TWO!!

Rollins survives but Kevin has the fans behind him still. Kevin stands and Rollins rises, another kick but still no stunner. Rollins kicks but misses, Kevin rolls but Rollins slips out to SUPERKICK! Kevin SUPERKICKS back! Rollins PELES! Kevin staggers, SUPERKICK from Rollins again! Rollins runs, but into a kick! STUNNER!! But Kevin can’t make the cover! Rollins is down, but here come the Authors of Pain!? Akam and Rezar are getting in the ring, circling Kevin. But also eyeing Rollins… Who are they after?! Kevin SLAPS Akam and makes himself the target for a beating!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by disqualification

The AoP beat Kevin down with knees, then drag Kevin up to throw into a post! Chicago calls BS as the AoP ram KO into the post again! And again! They won’t stop! They keep Kevin trapped in and BOOT him against the post! Akam drags Kevin up, lifts him up, and feeds him to Rezar’s KNEE! Fans boo but then the AoP turn to Rollins. The jackets come off, Rollins flounders up to his feet, and he dares them to attack! But they spare him? Why? Are the AoP not the violent monsters they claim to be? Or is there something more to this? Rollins shrugs it off to CURB STOMP Kevin down!! Rollins says that Raw is still his show! A second Curb Stomp, and Rollins says they can do this the easy way, or the hard way. Will Kevin fall in line? Or will he rise up to defy Rollins again?



My Thoughts:

Aside from perhaps how the ending felt, this was a really good Raw to follow Survivor Series with. I am starting to think Rollins’ little meeting was to reference the supposed “ra ra speech,” along with his behavior on social media with supporting WWE at the expense of his reputation. And in so doing this in kayfabe, Rollins is now the number one Heel on Raw. His match with Kevin Owens was really good, as it should be given these two, and Kevin has become the top Face of Raw to contrast Rollins.

And while live fans were upset, it isn’t actually a bad move. Rollins and Kevin stay relatively even, AoP and Rollins get the Heel Heat for doing that to Kevin, and we could possibly be seeing a new trio forming, depending on the relationship. If AoP come back next week and say they actually do respect Rollins for calling everyone out, than okay, that makes sense. There needs to be respect between them or else the trio has no reason to stick together. Because obviously, the AoP spared Rollins, so why work with someone you could destroy if not because of respect and a common motivation?

Everything else tonight was really solid and I don’t think fans were disappointed by any of it. The Lana-Lashley-Rusev story finally gets somewhere awesome so that no one can complain. Rusev going after Lashley like that was awesome! And given Lana’s interview promo later, it sounds like she’s making this story about herself, even going so far as saying “My Bobby.” I hope then that the blow-off is Lashley leaves Lana because she’s so conceited. Almas VS Tozawa was sadly a squash, the Stamina Monster apparently isn’t as important as El Idolo. But I imagine Almas getting to a United States Championship match now, because we have a NEW United States Champion! Carrillo gets wrecked but for the greater good of a great bunch of promos from four great contenders and Styles. Orton and McIntyre were each so close to turning to Face, I really hope we get to see that out of McIntyre in the near future, maybe even against Lesnar.

The Fatal 4 Way was amazing, and Styles VS Mysterio was really good. Understandably, Mysterio was surely tired after that Fatal 4, so it works just fine for Styles to take his time with the action. Mysterio winning is great. He may have gotten beat real fast by Lesnar, which was crap, but Mysterio does deserve something. He and Dominic get a great moment together as a consolation prize to not having their moment last night, and if Mysterio VS Almas is up next, then I’m all for it! They did amazing before, I can’t wait what they do with TLC being the next PPV. Charlotte VS Asuka was great, it started feeling like their Mania match, as Charlotte referenced in her interview. Kairi also played a great part in this, as did the mist! I’m still thinking we get Charlotte & Natty VS Kabuki Warriors, Paige returns to help screw Kabuki Warriors out of the titles as payback for her own mist attack.

And what I’m surprised to see is someone we didn’t see. I get that Becky Lynch couldn’t be part of the Town Hall for Rollins to get mad at her, given their real-life relationship, but I would’ve thought Becky could give us an interview promo to explain her actions against Shayna Baszler at the end of the PPV. Maybe we’ll get that next week, or Becky keeps things going with NXT this Wednesday. That’d be a pretty big thing for the first live NXT after WarGames and a PPV, and could be another step towards the possible Horsewomen VS Horsewomen match at WrestleMania 36.

My Score: 8.5/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Wrestling Results & Match Ratings: 9.29.2022

Bound for Glory is 8 days away, but Victory Road just happened. What kind of show do we get with some fallout and penultimate hype?



Victory Road just happened, but Bound for Glory is like 8 nights away? You know I forgot that it was such a quick turn around. That makes tonight weird, since there’s some fallout, but then there’s gonna be a lot of table setting for Bound for Glory.

This episode could be awful. The last week or so haven’t exactly set the world afire, so I’m curious if the highlight really is just gonna be the Monster’s Ball with Masha and Allie Katch.

*insert joke about possibly gagging and balls and Swinger’s Dungeon*


  • Bullet Club (Ace Austin & Chris Bey w/Juice Robinson) vs Trey Miguel & Laredo Kid: Bullet Club win via Finesse & Fold – **
  • IMPACT Digital Media Championship: Brian Myers (c) vs Crazzy Steve: Myers retains via Roster Cut – ** 1/2
  • Delirious vs Black Taurus: Black Taurus wins via Destination Hellhole – ** 1/4
  • PCO & Vincent vs Rich Swann & Heath: Rich wins via Phoenix Splash – ** 1/4
  • Pick Your Poison: Monster’s Ball Match: Masha Slamovich vs Allie Katch: Masha wins via Russian Death Device – *** 1/2


Bullet Club (Ace Austin & Chris Bey w/Juice Robinson) vs Trey Miguel & Laredo Kid

I don’t think I could care less about this match if I tried. Trey and Laredo are worthless. Laredo has eaten so many terrible losses and Trey is just bad. If the BC Juniors don’t win…I will really question the booking.

My biggest takeaway early is the commentary tries to put over Trey “turning heads”. No he doesn’t, he is legitimately hard to watch and everything that Will Ospreay did wrong in his early career; is basically Trey, but with less personality. Oh did you expect play by play? They isolate Laredo, decent tandem attacks, when Trey comes in it’s bad offense typical Cruiser garbage with laughable facials and body language.

Just typical crap with Trey. Were there some cool high spots? Sure. Do I care? NOPE.

IMPACT Digital Media Championship: Brian Myers (c) vs Crazzy Steve

Steve starts with some of his quirky mat wrestling, Arm Wringers into Drop Toe Holds and face biting. It shocked Myers early, but he takes a small shortcut and starts trying to slow down the psycho from Decay. Steve bounces off the ropes and Myers does his sliding trip move before commercial.

Back from commercial, Snapmare from Steve and the neck twister into some corner offense of Hip Attacks and Sentons for 2. Myers dodges King Kill 33, lands a few pot shots, Implant DDT for 2. Into the corner, face bite, Upside Down, after the rope break Myers grabs the referee to block Steve. Eye Poke, Roster Cut, AND STILL…

Simple, but entertaining. Plus it continues Myers’ arrogant, full of himself for absolutely no reason persona. Oh and he offers up an Open Challenge for Bound for Glory. Maybe Bobby Fish? Someone new? Could be interesting. 

Delirious vs Black Taurus

Delirious is between gibberish and Stone Cold early on while they’re just trading shots. Delirious twists the Nose Ring…in the mask…and Taurus sells it momentarily before stomping the foot and decking him. This is just a weird match. I mean we all know Delirious is weird, but he’s not all comedy; and Taurus is supposed to be legit-ish.

Admittedly, with the exception of Victory Road, it has been years since I’ve watched a Delirious match. So the level of ridiculousness has hit Toru Yano levels, especially after the 10 count Leg Drops. Taurus powders, comes back in, Shoulder Tackle, Blackhole Backbreaker into a Samoan Drop. As soon as Taurus looks in charge, Delirious throws together a combo, eats a Headbutt and then Destination Hellhole.

Sheesh okay after 2 interview segments we get to Honor No More’s victory celebration segment. Just a lot of talking and inaction, so this just goes to feed that weird feeling I had coming into the show because of the timing. Eddie does the usual thing where hates on PCO and accuses him of being the weak link, which is a smart story angle since the fans tend to like PCO’s gimmick and this makes him more sympathetic to casual observers. 

Oh good Taven is talking nowWait did I just say that? DAMN YOU IMPACT! Made me like Matt Taven. Maria stirs the pot a little saying that Eddie is a better wrestler than Josh and Moose…by the implications. 

Thank God, Josh Alexander finally breaks up the segment with…more talking. Okay never mind. Jesus since the end of the Delirious match it was like 15 minutes before Josh finally charged the ring and threw down a bit with Honor No More. Rich Swann and Heath make a bit of the babyface save for Josh, but the numbers are still on Honor No More’s side. Oh MCMG come down in a tracksuit and dress clothes! Someone wasn’t ready to be doing a run in.

PCO & Vincent vs Rich Swann & Heath

Well isn’t that convenient that four of the men in the donnybrook were supposed to be in a match anyway.

Rich uses his quickness to try and stay ahead of PCO, but PCO cuts him off in the corner into the Corner Hung Codebreaker, then the leaned against the ropes Leg Drop thing. Vincent throws together a T-Bone Suplex into a Flatliner and keeps the vibes flowing on Rich Swann.

PCO clears out Heath, but PCO’s hand gets stuck in the ropes. Vincent eats a flip kick and the Phoenix Splash while PCO and Heath are brawling on the outside after the rope issue with PCO.

Pick Your Poison: Monster’s Ball Match: Masha Slamovich vs Allie Katch

Haymakers and Headbutts start things off as they both hit the ropes and lay out one another with dual clotheslines. Trash can lid duel, Masha gets first contact, but Allie blocks and returns 3 shots. German Suplex from Masha into whipping her with a chain, some choking and then general pulling with the chain in Katch’s mouth or around her eyes. Katch claws at Masha’s eyes to try and get some space.

Headbutts and Biting from Masha as Allie tries to power out of a Bow and Arrow. More chain choking…I’m not sure if this is a wrestling match or BDSM prep at the moment. Ahh Masha needs more Cowbell but Allie cuts her off with a trash can lid. Allie tries a Piledriver through a door, but Masha turns it into an Air Raid Crash into the opposite corner.

Commercial break, and Allie is getting choked again. Spots get a little redundant, slams, chokes, and blood. OHHH – it’s a “Use the Door” chant. I thought it was – nah – I won’t say what I thought it was. Chairshot from Masha misses, but a Snap Suplex from Masha onto the chair gets some usefulness. Straight Right to the gut and an Axe Kick allows Masha to hit the Death Valley Driver onto the propped up chair. Masha goes back to biting after it was only 2. Allie cuts off Masha going to the top, Superplex onto the trash can lid, into a Death Valley Driver through the door – but Masha kicks out.

Allie tries a Piledriver on the apron a few times, but Masha blocks. Masha tries for the Release German to the floor but Allie holds on. Dazed strikes, bites and then a Russian Leg Sweep through the table lays both out for a short time. Masha grabs a black bag, it’s gotta be tacks for Monster’s Ball. Masha eats a few tacks for good show, picks up Allie but Allie fights. Piledriver into the tacks from Allie, only 2. Allie opens a trash can, and empties a bunch of cut up soda cans. Hits Masha with the can, Masha fires, Spinning Heel Kick and then Russian Death Device into the pile of tacks and cans.

Overall Score: 6.25/10

The main event was pretty good, maybe even a little better than I gave it credit for; I’m just sick of seeing some crazy hardcore match so often from Impact. It feels like its weekly, and that’s too damn much. Trey is terrible, and that’s a hill I’m willing to die on. He sells poorly, he doesn’t tell a story with his wrestling and he looks like an idiot pretending to be something he isn’t; and that’s talented.

Myers is fine with his classic delusional heel style, Delirious gave a bit of a rub to Taurus so I’m guessing he’s probably next up in the X Division. But a straight 15 minutes of interviews and talking is just too damn much especially when the surrounding wrestling isn’t very good or hearty enough to help people tolerate talking time.

I do however love Joe Hendry. So…yeah. There’s always some quirky gimmicks that just resonate well with me, and this is gorgeous.

All in all, decent enough; though next week could be a real banger of a Go Home.

Mitchell’s AEW Dynamite Results & Report! (9/28/22)

There’s gold in Philly!



AEW Dynamite 2021

Will things get extreme for Dynamite in Philadelphia?

AEW visits the City of Brotherly Love for anything but! Will Jon Moxley get some payback on NJPW’s Juice Robinson in their world title eliminator match? Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman make his move?


  • Bryan Danielson VS Matthew Menard w/ Angelo Parker; Bryan wins.
  • AEW World Title Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Juice Robinson; Moxley wins and denies Juice a title match.
  • Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Lumberjack Match: Toni Storm VS Serena Deeb; Storm wins and retains the title.
  • Ricky Starks VS Eli Isom; Starks wins.
  • ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Bandido; Jericho wins and retains the title.


The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!

Philly is fired up to sing Judas for Le Champion as he leads the way out for Tay Melo, Sammy Guevara, Anna Jay “A S,” “Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard, “Cool Hand” Angelo Parker, and a less than enthused Daniel Garcia. And no, it has nothing to do with them all wearing matching purple satin suits. The JAS goes to the ring where there is a purple carpet, purple balloons, golden number 8 balloons to acknowledge this is #OCHO for Jericho, and wow! Luigi Primo is there spinning pizza dough! Seems he catered this event for the JAS. Fans cheer but Parker gets the mic to say, “AEW Galaxy… APPRECIATE US!”

Parker says if there’s one thing we all know about Philly, it’s that Philly is the city of LOSERS! Fans boo that but Parker knows they’re not used to championship celebrations. But don’t worry, the JAS is here to give them that gift! Everyone, stand up and join in celebrating THE OCHOOOO~! Fans are a bit torn, but Menard says “What a celebration we have for you tonight! Daddy Magic put the call in to the pizza guy, Luigi Primo,” who is still spinning dough. Luigi, Daddy Magic loves a bit o’ the pizza. What kind of pizza did Luigi make for them tonight? He made the best pizza! From NEW YORK CITY!

That’s right! Philly thought they were getting a taste? “I DON’T THINK SO! No pizza for you! No pizza for you! No pizza for anybody!” Anna says NONE of the fans get pizza. Fans chant, “We Want Pizza!” Anna tells them to shut up! They don’t shut up. “I’LL CHOKE YOU OUT!” They don’t care! Anna says they do get the greatest ROH World Champion of all time, #THEOCHO, Chris Jericho~! Fans are again torn. Jericho takes the mic now and says, “You guys want pizza?” “YES!” “You can’t have any. What you can have is the most important ROH champion in history, THE OCHO, Chris Jericho!

“Everyone knows I’m the most honorable man in AEW, and now it’s official. I’m also the most viewed ROH champion. In just one week, more people have seen me win this belt than all other ROH champions put together, cuz no one knows about ROH! But you’re about to! Because I’m gonna change the way ROH is remembered. This is the era of the Ring of Jericho. And I’m gonna start tonight,” as the others dig into the pizza, “by having my first title defense against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers today, former ROH Champion, BANDIDO.” Fans cheer for that!

Jericho knows Bandido “never got the rematch for this championship that he deserves, I’m gonna give it to him tonight. Trust me, the man is gonna blow your mind. But trust me once again, he is a pro-wrestler, and like I always say, sports entertainers beat pro-wrestlers every single time.” Fans boo but the JAS applaud. And speaking of sports entertainer, it’s the ROH Pure Champion, Danny Garcia! Fans cheer for Garcia and Jericho knows they’ve had some miscommunications and some issues, but Jericho wants Garcia to know that Garcia is an amazing champion, an amazing sports entertainer, and he bought a gift just for Garcia.

Fans chant, “You’re a Wrestler!” but Garcia accepts the Gift of Jericho. It’s… a purple bucket hat! Jericho puts it on him! YES! That is the look of the Best Technical Sports Entertainer of All Time! Garcia doesn’t look happy, though. Garcia takes the hat off and fans cheer! Garcia throws it down and fans cheer more! And then Garcia DECKS Luigi! Fans boo that a bit but Garcia gets a mic. “This is enough. Chris, this is enough. This isn’t me. This is never what I envisioned myself doing when I wanted to get into this business. And I tolerated it for a little bit, but I think I’ve finally had enough.” Fans cheer that!

Garcia says he wants to tell Jericho something he’s been meaning to get off his chest for a long time now: “Chris… I think it’s time for me to-” Jericho cuts Garcia off by pushing the mic down. Jericho then tells Garcia to really think about what he’s about to say. “This is a crossroads for you. Make the right decision, you can be bigger than your wildest dreams in this business. Make the wrong decision, and I’m gonna have to take you out.” Jericho is going to ask Garcia just this once and Garcia needs to answer properly: “Are you a sports entertainer? Or are you a pro-wrestler?” Fans cheer for the one they wanna hear!

Garcia stares Jericho down and then brings the mic up. But then BRYAN DANIELSON makes his way out here! William Regal sees Bryan out to the stage, but the American Dragon is all alone as he approaches the ring. Bryan picks up the bucket hat to look at it. “Chris, it seems to me like you’re trying to tell Daniel Garcia what you think he should be. Garcia, listen. I have an infinite amount of respect for you. You’re a grown man. You can do whatever you want. If you wanna stay with the Jericho Appreciation Society, you can stay with them. If you wanna come to the Blackpool Combat Club,” which fans cheer loudly, “you can come with us.”

If Garcia wants to train with the JAS, or if he wants to train with the BCC. If Garcia wants to team with the JAS or if he wants to team with the BCC- Jericho tells Bryan to shut his mouth! Fans boo but Jericho says he is sick of Bryan trying to poach his guy! Garcia belongs to Jericho! Garcia does what Jericho tells him to do! Except Garcia gets in Jericho’s face! Garcia tells Jericho they’re getting one thing straight right now: Garcia does NOT belong to Jericho, and he does NOT have to do what he tells Garcia.

But let’s not get too serious now. This is supposed to be entertaining, right? So if Jericho wants sports entertainment, what if Garcia grabbed some of this pizza and he threw it on the ground. Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Garcia throws the pizza out of the ring! What if Garcia woke up Luigi Primo and started tossing dough with him? Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Justin Roberts, what if you and Garcia were a tag team? That’d be entertaining, right? Fans are more torn on that one. Garcia asks if the fans think it’d be entertaining if Garcia was in a tag team with Bryan Danielson. “YES!! YES!! YES!!”

Garcia asks Jericho if he wants to know what Garcia thinks would be really entertaining. If he and Bryan teamed up against Jericho’s little brother, Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho! Fans cheer for that one! Menard says he is sick of Garcia’s crap! For one year, when he had NOTHING and NOBODY, Menard & Parker had his back! And now Garcia wants to spit in their face and turn his back on them for “this piece of crap right here?” Menard oughta punch Bryan in the face and knock him out right now! Bryan says, “Right now? Wait, do you wanna punch me right now? Right here, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania?” Fans want it!

Well then, Bryan has good news! He was told that he can come out here and have a match with anyone who wants to fight him! And Menard said he wanted to fight, so why don’t we do the “Entertainer,” Daddy Magic VS “The Heart of Professional Wrestling,” Bryan Danielson! And right here, right now!! Menard is fired up, the rest of the JAS holds him back, but will the American Dragon be the one doing the slaying tonight?

Bryan Danielson VS Matthew Menard w/ Angelo Parker!

Menard shoves Bryan and the bell rings! Fans fire up as Menard talks trash on Bryan. Menard shoves Bryan again, and again, but then Bryan EuroUppers! And EuroUppers! And EuroUppers! Menard kicks low, bumps Bryan off buckles and RAMS his shoulder in! Menard RAMS again and again, then climbs up to rain down fists! The ref counts, Menard lets off at 4, and he RAMS into Bryan some more! Parker applauds but then Bryan turns things around. Bryan CHOPS Menard, KICKS him, then KICKS and KICKS! Fans rally, Bryan wrenches and goes after the arm but Menard powers out. Bryan runs Menard over, then arm-drags him around!

Bryan has the armlock and he bends the fingers! Bryan top wristlocks to then isolate the arm, to STOMP it! Menard clutches the elbow but stands up into more EuroUppers. Bryan has Menard in a corner but Menard kicks low. Menard bumps Bryan off buckles, fires off forearms, then CHOPS! Bryan snarls but Menard CHOPS again. And again! Bryan EuroUppers Menard back! And again! Bryan whips Menard corner to corner but Menard reverses. Bryan BOOTS Menard, goes up, but Menard SHOVES Bryan down! Bryan tumbles to the floor and fans boo. Menard goes out to fetch Bryan and whips him hard into railing!

AEW goes picture in picture as Menard storms up on Bryan. Menard whips Bryan into more railing, then he brings Bryan around to whip into more railing! Menard refreshes the ring count and Parker taunts Bryan. Bryan crawls while Menard soaks up the heat. Menard watches Bryan as he gets in the ring, and he stomps Bryan at the ropes. Menard digs his knee in, lets off as the ref counts, and Menard soaks up more heat while Parker talks trash. The ref tells Parker to back away and Menard drags Bryan up for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Another cover, ONE! Menard clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Bryan down.

Bryan endures, fights up, and fans rally as Bryan throws body shots. Bryan is free, he EuroUppers Menard again then whips. Menard reverses and CLOBBERS Bryan with an elbow! Menard soaks up more heat while Bryan gets to ropes. Menard stomps Bryan, rains down punches, but lets off as the ref counts the ropebreak. Menard drags Bryan up, ROCKS him in a corner, then CHOPS him. Bryan goes to another corner but Menard keeps after him with another CHOP! Dynamite returns to single picture as Menard whips corner to corner. Bryan reverses but Menard comes back to LARIAT!

Both men are down but Menard drags Bryan up for a short arm LARIAT! And then another! Cover, TWO! Menard is frustrated and fans rally for Bryan. Bryan grits his teeth, Menard gives him kicks to the chest, and a CHOP! Bryan snarls and stands up. Menard CHOPS again, but Bryan just powers up! Menard CHOPS again but Bryan just eggs him on! Menard CHOPS, Bryan CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Bryan fires off CHOPS and KICKS in the corner! Bryan whips but Menard reverses, only for Bryan to go up and over! Bryan keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! Fans fire up while Menard flounders to a corner!

Bryan runs in corner to corner to DROPKICK! Bryan keeps going, another DROPKICK! And Bryan still keeps going, and he hits a third DROPKICK! Fans fire up but Parker is worried as Bryan watches Menard sit up. Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! Fans chant “YES!” with every one, but Parker saves Menard from the Buzzsaw! Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but Bryan WRECKS Menard with a dropkick! Bryan takes aim, but Parker saves Menard from the flying knee! Menard RAMS Bryan into railing, and then he hoists Bryan up to POST him in the groin! The ref reprimands again, Menard distracts him so that Parker can DDT Bryan to the floor!

Fans boo but Parker puts Bryan in and Menard hoists him up, POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Bryan survives the screw job, and here comes Claudio! Claudio chases Parker, Parker loses his jacket and a shoe as he flees! Parker flounders through the ring then back out, only for Claudio to CLOBBER him with a EuroUpper! Claudio then gut wrenches Parker to carry him away up the ramp! Fans fire up as things are truly 1v1 now! Menard realizes what happened to Parker, he turns around and swings but Bryan dodges! BUSAIKU KNEE! And then the omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Menard taps, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Blackpool Combat Club watches out for each other, and Bryan gets a win! Will this help Bryan climb up towards a title match? Will the BCC soon have Daniel Garcia and the ROH Pure title on their side?


AEW takes a closer look at Moxley VS Juice.

Tony Schiavone notes that Jon Moxley, having won the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, is now a THREE-TIME AEW World Champion, the most in history. And his interim championship reign made this year “The Summer of Moxley.” Can anyone dethrone him? Schiavone doesn’t think so. But the Bullet Club’s Booster asks, “What happened last time Jon Moxley was in the ring with Rock Hard Juice Robinson?” He of course means NJPW Capital Collision’s IWGP United States Championship Fatal 4 Way that Juice won to become the then champion. “I’ve hated this guy for ten YEARS!”

If Juice can beat Moxley in Philly, then he has a chance in Washington D.C. to face Moxley for the AEW World Championship. If Juice can do it once, can he do it again? Or will Moxley cross him off the list?


MJF is- Wait, Wheeler Yuta is here!

The Decoder storms out after watching the recap package of his encounter with MJF, and now he gets the mic! “M J F! MJF, we have a real serious problem, man. And it’s not what you think. It’s not that you’ve got this whole new army of lackeys, I could’ve seen that one coming from a few miles away. No, man, it’s not that you just tried to cheap shot me with the Dynamite Diamond Ring, because I’ve been hit a lot harder by a lot better men. Max, it’s the fact that you had the audacity to put your hands on Tony Schiavone, a man who has done more for AEW than you ever will! And Maxwell, Maxwell, I think actions should have consequences.

“And what better punishment than for you to walk down here and fight me in MY city!” Philly cheers, but Yuta then tells them sorry, don’t get too excited. We all know that Max just likes to run and hide. He liked to hide behind The Inner Circle, behind The Pinnacle, and now he’s hiding behind The Firm. He likes to hide behind that fake tan, his suits, and this very microphone. Because Max knows that once the bell rings, he can’t hang with Yuta! “So Max, if you wanna address these wonderful people in Philly, I’ll go ahead and do it for ya.

“Alright, uh, what do we got here? Charisma of drying paint, pet rock, I don’t think the Phillies have made the playoffs in like 11 years. He probably doesn’t even know that. I don’t know. But yeah, alright, what else? Can we skip to the part where we fight? Where you come down here and you take the ass kicking you deserve?!” Yuta’s fired up and here comes MJF! MJF has his music cut, and he’s wearing a Mets jersey, of course. Everyone give it up for the hometown boy, Yuta! “Philly: the place where you live if you can’t afford to live in New York!” Fans boo as MJF smiles.

But speaking of embarrassing, hi, Schiavone! How’s that body holding up after last week, “ya fat old pr*ck?” But MJF knows Schiavone won’t do anything because he’s “a lowdown coward, just like everybody in this Podunk arena! Except for you, Wheeler, I’ll give you credit, you’re not coward. We practically grew up in this sport together. I have been wrestling you up and down North America when we were on the independent circuit just trying to make a name for ourselves. And I’m not afraid to admit, you’re one of the best wrestlers in the world.

However, you made a big mistake when you decided to go toe-to-toe on the mic with Daddy last week. And Daddy had to put you on timeout, didn’t he? Daddy had to spank you some.” MJF tells Philly to shut up while he’s got the mic. MJF finds it interesting that Yuta claims MJF doesn’t care about AEW, yet here Yuta is, taking up a lot of TV time from the biggest draw in AEW! And to make matters worse, Yuta is talking into a mic! Yuta, the… Fans tell MJF to STFU but MJF keeps going. Yuta has about as much charisma as Joe Frazier does present day. By the way, Frazier is dead! And speaking of dead, the Phillies are dead in the water and are never gonna win the World Series ever again!

Yuta’s amused that MJF actually went after the Phillies. MJF says whoops, there’s that local sports team talk. It’s almost like MJF doesn’t give an F! It’s almost like at 26 years of age, MJF doesn’t have to care, because he makes more money than everyone in this bum town! More than the people watching at home! MJF is a multi-millionaire at just 26! Yuta cuts MJF off here. Let’s make one thing very clear: Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s money; he doesn’t care about MJF’s Mets jersey; Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s scarf! If MJF doesn’t wanna fight Yuta in the ring, then Yuta will leave MJF in a pool of blood on Broad Street!! Fans cheer for that one!

MJF wants Yuta to cool off but Yuta says MJF may not know this, “but bad things happen in Philadelphia. And tonight is no exception.” Yuta rushes up the ramp but MJF gets his back-up in the Gunn Sons! Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” of The Firm, but Yuta dares them all to fight! MJF doesn’t do brawls, but if Yuta wants to wrestle, they can do that. If Yuta wants that, if the fans want that, then NO! HAHAHAHA! MJF will see Yuta in the ring next week in “Dumpy D.C.” But until then, remember this: He is… Oh, wait, the fans don’t deserve his catchphrase.

MJF will go to the skybox, watch Moxley be a horrible wrestler, and maybe cash his chip in on the Blackpool Cuckold Club. Until then, sayonara. Austin, you tell the people his catchphrase. MJF leaves as Austin takes the mic. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” some more, but Austin says “MJF is better than you… And you know it!” The Scum of the Earth is waiting for the Dynamite Anniversary to fight Yuta, but will he not wait to cash in his chips?


AEW hears from Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, and Darby Allin.

Sonjay “congratulates” Darby Allin on one hell of a win alongside Sting. But it seems Darby still has something to prove. He is sorely mistaken if he thinks he’s gonna do that against Sonjay’s best friend, Jay Lethal. Lethal says Darby will be outclassed. Darby likes to take a lot of pain, but we’ll see how much he likes walking around after Lethal breaks one of his legs with a Figure Four! Darby says everyone wants to be a champion, but how they get there can be oh so different. Darby is going to remind himself of what he is capable of when he takes on Lethal 1v1 with no Sonjay or Satnam ringside.

Lethal says Darby has something to prove, but so does Lethal! Lethal accepts the challenge and wants to beat Darby on his own. No Sonjay, no Satnam, no Sting, who will win between the Lethal and the Relentless?


AEW World Title Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Juice Robinson!

As we already heard, The Maniac is the most prolific AEW World Champion, but he still owes “Rock Hard” Robinson from Capital Collision. Will Moxley unload on Juice to move on to the next challenger? Or will Juice force Moxley into another showdown in DC?

As Moxley makes it to ringside from his bleacher side entrance, Juice CLOBBERS him! Moxley hits railing, Juice stomps away, the ref reprimands and fans boo. Juice drags Moxley up to whip him hard into railing! Juice tells the ref this ain’t his first match, and he drags Moxley up to HEADBUTT him! Moxley staggers, Juice HEADBUTTS Moxley again, and then follows him around the way. Juice puts Moxley in the ring, the bell rings, and Juice soaks up the heat with Too Sweets. Juice gets in the ring but Moxley clotheslines him up and out! Moxley throws off his shirt and storms out after Juice to whip him into railing now!

Fans fire up and the ring count climbs. Moxley drags Juice up, and snap suplexes Juice to the floor! Moxley refreshes the ring count to drag Juice up, but as MJF said, he’s in the skybox. MJF gives a thumbs down since Moxley’s in control, and Moxley THROWS Juice onto the timekeeper’s table! Juice and the table fall over, the ring count climbs again, and Moxley drags Juice up and into the ring. Juice throws hands but Moxley just gets in his face. Fans fire up, Juice throws another forearm but Moxley ROCKS Juice back! Juice throws another forearm, Moxley throws another, repeat! Fans rally as they go back and forth faster and faster!

Juice JABS and JABS and JABS, then powers up, but Moxley kicks low! Moxley fires off boxing elbows, EuroUppers, then runs, but Juice chokes and BITES Moxley! The ref reprimands, Juice lets off and Moxley goes to a corner. Juice runs in to clothesline! Moxley sits down, Juice calls his shot and he runs corner to corner, CANNON- NO, LARIAT! Moxley drags Juice back up, hooks the arms, but Juice tackles Moxley out of the ring! Moxley gets up to his feet first and goes to the railing. Moxley sits down to rest, but Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice hurries into the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ring count is climbing but Moxley flounders around. The count is 7 of 10, then 8! Moxley slides in at 9! Juice is right on Moxley and he TOSSES Moxley back out! Juice then goes out after Moxley and drags him up to TOSS into the timekeeper’s area! Juice returns the favor, as he tells the ref, and then Juice gets in the ring. Juice goes back out, and Moxley’s busted open! Moxley sputters but Juice grabs him first to POST him! Juice gets in the ring to flex and soak up the heat. Moxley gets up and in but Juice looms over him. Juice sits Moxley up so he can BITE the wound!! Juice lets off as the ref counts, but he tastes Moxley’s blood!

Moxley is mad now, and he storms up to Juice. Juice ROCKS Moxley, Moxley CHOPS Juice! Juice CHOPS Moxley and Moxley falls out of the ring! Juice taunts Moxley as he staggers about. Juice goes out, MJF is talking trash to fans now, and Juice AX HANDLES Moxley down! Juice rains down fists on the bloody forehead and BITES it again! Juice lets off, wipes away Moxley’s blood, and soaks up more heat. Juice drags Moxley up to snap suplex him to the floor! Juice gets in the ring, Moxley drags himself up, but Juice is there to DECK him! Moxley goes back to the floor, and Juice AX HANDLES him down again!

Moxley ends up taking a seat in the chair, and Juice HEADBUTTS away on him! Dynamite returns to single picture, Juice lets off to go to the apron and soak up more heat. Juice CANNONBALLS but Moxley moves! Juice only gets chair!! Even MJF is wincing from that one. Moxley gets back in the ring but Juice crawls over. Fans rally for Moxley as he drags himself up. Moxley builds speed and he DIVES! Direct hit and Juice hits railing! Moxley puts Juice in the ring, Juice goes to a corner. Moxley takes aim, runs in, but Juice BOOTS him! Juice runs in, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! They go again, DOUBLE LARIATS collide even harder!

Juice roars and Moxley snarls, CUTTER OUTTA NOWHERE! Cover, TWO!! Juice survives but Moxley has the ANKLE LOCK! Moxley leans on the hold but Juice endures and moves around. Juice gets the ROPEBREAK before Moxley can step through for the STF! Moxley lets off and has Juice in a corner. Moxley rains down fists, but Juice digs fingers into the eye and forehead wound! Juice then hits a RUNNING POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Juice is frustrated but he goes to the corner. Juice climbs up top, fans rally up, and Moxley stands up. Juice jumps, into a kick! But Juice fights the underhooks to POST Moxley!

Juice then drags Moxley out, chicken wings, PULP FRICTION!! Cover, TWO!!! Moxley survives and Juice can’t believe it! Fans fire up while Juice argues with the ref. Juice calms down, he calls his shot, and he torture racks Moxley! Juice spins around, but Moxley slips out of the Rockslide to hit a REGAL KNEE!! Cover, TWO!?! But Moxley has the knuckle locks for DRAGON STOMPS! Fans fire up and Moxley clamps on an ARMBAR! Juice taps, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (denies Juice Robinson a title match)

MJF is upset, Juice didn’t do enough damage for his liking. But Moxley denies Juice a DC title match, will MJF decide to change targets? Wait! Here comes Hangman Page! The Cowboy has his golden ticket for Cincinnati, and he goes right into the ring. Fans fire up for this stare down, and the two look ready to square off! But then MJF has a mic in his skybox to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Ladies, settle down, settle down, settle down. Don’t you realize you’re not fighting each other? You’re not fighting each other, man. What you’re doing is fighting to lose. Cuz once you two morons get to Cincinnati, I just might cash my chip in and become the NEW AEW World Champion!

“Because I am a generational… talent!” But Yuta finds MJF! Fans fire up and MJF is confused. Yuta turns MJF around to fire off haymakers! And then he THRWOS MJF into the couch! Yuta fires off, he drags MJF up and he throws him into the bleachers! Security rushes in but Yuta fights them off! Yuta goes after MJF again and fans fire up, but security drags Yuta away! MJF has been saved for tonight, will MJF definitely reconsider what he’s doing in DC?


Saraya is here!

And just as Justin Roberts made sure to say, “SA-RAY-YA” is All Elite! Fans fire up to see the #Glampire go to the ring and get the mic. “Whew. I’ve got chills right now, you guys. Ahem. I’m baaaack~!” Fans chant, “Welcome Back!” and Saraya asks, “So you missed me? It feels fantastic to be back in the ring, you guys. It’s obviously been a crazy road. I’m damaged, but I’m not broken, at the end of the day.” Fans cheer that! Saraya says it’s great to be back, and it is great to be here in AEW, because she is going to create change in the division. She was the revolution before, and she’ll be the revolution here, because she IS the revolution!

Fans chant, “This is Your House!” and Saraya smiles. “It’s really hard to talk out here, guys, I’m so nervous. It’s been awhile. But AEW is officially my house.” The crew can give her time cues all they want, but she’ll leave when she’s ready. Let’s take up more time with ALL the ladies of AEW! And starting that off is Interim AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm! She leads Athena, Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Willow Nightingale, and they all go to the ring together to stand with Saraya. Saraya wants the fans to make some noise and they do. “When I said we’re gonna make a change, I promise you, we’re gonna make a change.”

Saraya wants to reintroduce us to these ladies. And she’ll start with the champ, Toni Storm. Fans cheer as Saraya says Toni is finally being utilized to her full potential. She is a fighting champion, the best champion AEW has seen! And Saraya is honored to be in the ring with Toni. But “Well, well, well.” Britt Baker leads Rebel, Jamie Hayter & Penelope Ford out. “Look what we have here, guys. Another shiny new toy. And we’ve seen them come, we’ve certainly seen them go. But until you actually earn some respect around here, all you are is a catchphrase. Unlike myself, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.”

Britt isn’t sure Saraya watches AEW, but Britt is the Face of the Women’s Division, and she’s literally put her blood, sweat and tears into this company. In fact, Britt even put her neck on the line for AEW. And unlike Saraya’s, Britt’s neck can handle it. Britt says Saraya made such a big impact, but half of the people in this room can’t even say her name. “Sa-Ray-Ya? Sa-Rye-Ya? Psoriasis?” Saraya tells Britt to stop right there. It is cute that Britt of all people are trying to make fun of Saraya’s name. “Well, doctor, your name rhymes with sh*t.” Hayter and Rebel try to tell Britt that’s not true, but then the fans chant it at her!

Britt tells Toni Storm that she respects her. She doesn’t like her, but Britt does respect her. Britt had such high hopes for Toni when she first got here, but she couldn’t keep herself away from all the problematic people in wrestling. They’re always in Toni’s corner. In fact, last week, they all knew the title was Britt’s, so Toni and her new tag partner, Athena, broke her nose to take her out! And yet again, conspiracy! But that’s not why they’re here tonight. They’re here because Toni has quite the match on her hands tonight. Serena Deeb is one of the most cold-blooded and calculating wrestlers on the planet.

Fans are chanting more for Hayter than Britt, but Britt says Toni is lucky she isn’t facing Hayter! Hayter gets her shot after Deeb. One misstep from Toni against The Professor, and they’ll be hearing the words, “AND NEW…” Britt calls for Serena, and Serena heads out! Britt wants the others to get out, their five minutes of fame are up. But Saraya has the music stop a moment. Saraya admits she hasn’t been around AEW that long, but she does have eyes and ears. She knows Britt’s crew likes to “get up to some funky stuff.” So how about this? Since she talked to Tony Khan–by the way, it’s so great to have a boss that finally listens to her!

But it was decided that they’ll make this match a Lumberjack match! The title is on the line, Toni has back-up just like Deeb does, and Saraya says it’s time to get this show on the road! Will the Wolf sink her teeth into the title to Britt’s delight? Or will it still be #ToniTime in Philly?

Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Lumberjack Match: Toni Storm VS Serena Deeb!

The bell rings, Saraya joins commentary, and fans rally for Toni. Toni and Deeb tie up, Deeb goes after an arm and wrenches to a wristlock. Toni reaches back, headlocks, but Deeb pries free to a hammerlock. Deeb wrangles Toni to the mat but Toni reaches back again. Toni rolls, hammerlocks and then gets Deeb’s other arm! Toni shows she’s got technical prowess as she flips Deeb to a cover, ONE! Toni facelocks but Deeb fights up. Deeb wrenches out, wrenches again, then headlocks. Toni endures the grind, even as Deeb thrashes. Toni powers out, Deeb RAMS shoulders but Toni comes back to run Deeb over!

Deeb bails out, but Madison and Willow put her in! Toni BOOTS Deeb down! Deeb goes to a corner, Toni CHOPS away on her! Deeb turns it around to CHOP back! And MACHINE GUN CHOP! Toni stops it short to fire off forearms! Toni reels Deeb in to hoist her up top! Toni then climbs up behind and stands Deeb up. Fans fire up but Deeb resists. Toni SUPER BACK- CROSSBODY from Deeb! Cover, TWO! Deeb hurries to get Toni up and she throws her out to the other side. Britt, Hayter and Rebel stomp away! But Athena leads the charge and they back everyone off of Storm. Saraya likes seeing this “good trouble” as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref has the Lumberjacks all stand down, and Storm gets up to get in the ring. Deeb is right on her with EuroUppers! Deeb short arm LARIATS Toni down, covers, TWO! Deeb is frustrated but she stomps away on Storm. Storm kicks back, Deeb kicks her to the ropes and pie faces her around. Britt and Ford talk some trash as Deeb drags Toni up for TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Deeb soaks up the heat as she paces around Toni. Deeb stands on Storm’s face to scrape her sole off Storm’s face! Deeb clamps onto Storm to throw down crossface forearms! Deeb then drags Storm up to EuroUpper back down!

Britt cheers Deeb on as she cravats Storm and thrashes her around. Storm endures, Madison and the others rally, and Storm snapmares free! Deeb hurries back but swings into a backslide! TWO!! A close call but Deeb swings again, into a roll-up! TWO! Deeb hurries to clinch but Storm fires forearms! Storm fires more and more and more shots, then ROCKS Deeb! Deeb rebounds as Dynamite returns to single picture, and Storm LARIATS Deeb down! Deeb staggers, Storm whips but Deeb reverses, only for Storm to SHOTGUN! Storm hurries to a corner and climbs up, Deeb stands for the CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Deeb bails out and Athena is there to bring her up. Athena puts Deeb in for Storm, and Storm GERMAN SUPLEXES! Deeb flounders to a corner and fans cheer as Storm says kiss this! But Deeb ducks the hips to victory roll, TWO! Deeb hurries to get a leg, DRAGON- NO, Storm sits on the dragon screw, TWO! Deeb sunset flips, TWO! Deeb has a body scissor for the INVERTED MOTORCYCLE! Deeb sits deep on the hold and Saraya says this is what happens when Britt is out of the equation and the women can have time. Deeb rolls Storm around into a BUTTERFLY STRETCH! Storm endures, pushes to a cover, TWO!!

Deeb lets Storm free, Storm HEADBUTTS her back! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Storm drags Deeb up, fans fire up, and Storm runs, only for Hayter to trip her up! Hayter drags Storm out, Skye storms up on Hayter, but Hayter DECKS Skye! Willow shoves Hayter, she and Hayter start brawling! Fans fire up as these two run to the back! The rest of the Lumberjacks put Storm in, Deeb hits a headlock takeover and floats to a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Omoplata, and the half crab, SERENITY LOCK! Storm endures, claws forward, but Deeb sits down to really wrench the leg! Fans still rally, and Storm reaches out!

Britt holds the ropes back, but the ref reprimands. Athena CLOBBERS Ford and Rebel, then backs Britt down! Storm gets the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets Britt go, but she drags Storm around to reel her in. Deeb tucks the arms, but Storm back drops free! Fans fire up with Storm as she goes back up top! Britt barks at Storm but Storm CROSSBODIES! Deeb rolls through! HALF CRAB!! And it is deep as Storm endures all over again! Storm grits her teeth, turns over and pushes Deeb down. Storm kicks away and Deeb stumbles into a corner! SWEET HIP MUSIC! Storm drags Deeb up, reels her in, but Deeb jackknife counters! TWO!!

Storm hits STORM ZERO!! Cover, TWO!?!? Deeb survives being spiked and no one can believe it! Deeb and Storm rise up and fans are fire dup. Storm runs in, Deeb dodges to put the legs in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW!! Britt coaches Deeb up and Deeb climbs, but Storm stands up to HEADBUTT! Storm climbs up after Deeb, Deeb throws body shots, they brawl up top and Storm gets the edge. SUPER STORM ZERO!?!? Cover, Storm wins!!!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (still Interim AEW Women’s World Champion)

Saraya loves seeing it! The Lightning From Down Under strikes down Deeb, who will step up to her next?


Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Tony Schiavone is with Billy Gunn and the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Max Caster says, “Yo, listen!” Anthony Bowens says, “Philadelphia, your AEW Tag Team Champions have arrived!” Billy says, “And right when you think that that can’t get any better, next week on Dynamite, it is National Scissoring Day!” Caster says bring your shirts, bring your signs, bring your big scissors, because they’ll do the chant all night long! Y’know why? Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And there’s more! This Friday night, your #ForeverChamps have an open contract to defend these titles!

And in walks Keith Lee. He applauds them. He wants to congratulate them properly, but as you can see, Swerve is not here this week. He is “exceptionally disgruntled.” Keith has been watching Swerve’s back, and he understands why Swerve is upset. Billy Gunn, you physically got involved and cost the Limitless House their titles. “You boys got carried. Good luck.” Keith heads out but Billy tells him to tell Swerve, “I’ve got two words for him: Scissor me~!” The Acclaimed is having a good time now, but will things turn around in a flash with that open challenge put out?


Backstage interview with the Andrade Family Office.

Or rather, Tony Schiavone is standing in the middle of an argument as The Butcher & The Blade yell at Private Party, and Private Party yells back, with Andrade El Idolo upset at them all. He has them all stop shouting! It’s enough! Listen here: Andrade is your boss, Private Party! Remember that! But Marq Quen says Private Party isn’t mad at Andrade, they’re mad at Butcher & Blade! The shouting starts again but Andrade has them all stop. Jose, you tell them. The Assistant explains that Private Party are the ones upsetting Andrade, Butcher & Blade. They may not like it, but Andrade is still their boss. So either shape up, or ship out!

The others leave, and Schiavone talks with Private Party alone. He usually doesn’t take sides in this, but… Oh, Matt Hardy walks in. Hardy tells Isiah & Marq that he’s sorry they’ve ended up in this situation. But what happened last week in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal felt right! They’re connected! They always have been. Andrade is way worse for them than Big Money Matt ever was. So they should quit, get out of the deal, and Hardy will be waiting. And this time, he promises them both that they’ll do it right. Will Private Party terminate their deal with the AFO to get the #HardyParty started right?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

With that open contract out on the tag titles, it seems the AFO jumped on it with not just one but TWO teams! Private Party AND The Butcher & The Blade are challenging The Acclaimed in a TRIPLE THREAT! Will Caster & Bowens survive the biggest first defense possible?

Plus, after their confrontation during the Lumberjack match, Willow Nightingale and Jamie Hayter will go 1v1! Then, as he fights his way towards Daniel Garcia’s ROH Pure Championship, Lee Moriarty takes on a returning Fuego Del Sol! And after his big win alongside Action Bronson for the Grand Slam, HOOK is back in action! Who will step to the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil next?


Ricky Starks VS Eli Isom!

The Absolute avenged his loss at All Out against “Powerhouse” Hobbs, but it took Lights Out to do it! Will Starks start getting that spotlight shining back on him here tonight?

The bell rings, Starks and Isom tie up, and Starks headlocks. Starks grinds the hold, but Isom wrenches free and headlocks back. Starks powers out the back and hammerlocks, but Isom elbows free! Isom run sin and forearm smashes in the corner! Isom whips corner to corner but Starks goes up and over. Things speed up, Starks barrels through Isom’s shoulder tackle to then SPEAR him down! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Isom up, for ROSHAMBEAUX! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

That was easy work for Starks, and he is absolutely back in the swing of things! Is this the start of a new chapter in the Book of Starks?


AEW looks closer at the drama filled feud of Jungle Boy, Christian Cage & Luchasaurus.

AEW shares footage from after Rampage: Grand Slam. Jack Perry was obviously pissed that after one of the hardest fought matches in his career, and one of the biggest victories in his entire life, Captain Charisma and his personal kaiju attacked. One of JB’s proudest achievements, he gets screwed over again by the two people he used to care about the most in AEW. But they can do whatever they want, he will get them both. Where JB used to hang their AEW World Tag titles on the wall, he will hang both their heads! Will Jungle Boy hunt down the wrestling dinosaur and his new master?


ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Bandido!

The Wizard, Le Champion, the Lionheart, is very proud of himself for becoming an EIGHT-TIME World Champion in his career. But because he is (supposedly) the most honorable man in AEW, he is willing to be a fighting champion. Will #THEOCHO barely last seven days? Or will The Most Wanted, one of the greatest luchadors in the world today, still be a former ROH World Champion?

Bobby Cruise makes the introductions, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly the best ROH champion ever!

Fans rally for Bandido at the bell, and Jericho offers the handshake. Bandido takes it to uphold the Code of Honor, and then Jericho turns it into some kind of secret handshake he’s coming up with on the spot. Then he flips Bandido off! Bandido DECKS Jericho for that! Jericho gets up but Bandido throws more hands. Bandido whips, Jericho reverses and then CLOBBERS Bandido! Jericho kicks Bandido around, drags him up and CHOPS him to a corner. Jericho CHOPS Bandido again, CHOPS him against ropes, and fans bring back the chant of “WE WANT PIZZA!” Jericho whips Bandido but Bandido handsprings through!

Jericho avoids the contact and rushes in, but Bandido uses that to throw Jericho up and out! Bandido then builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Jericho hits railing! Bandido resets, builds speed and FOSBURY FLOPS! Direct hit on Jericho and fans fire up! Bandido ROCKS Jericho, puts him in the ring, and he high-fives fans as AEW goes picture in picture.

Jericho throws a tantrum, but Bandido goes out after him! They brawl with forearms, Jericho ROCKS Bandido but Bandido fires back! Bandido whips, Jericho reverses and Bandido hits steel steps! Jericho hurries into the ring, soaks up the heat, and fans give thumbs down. So Jericho flips them off! Jericho goes back out after Bandido, puts him in the ring, and he stomps Bandido around. Jericho sits Bandido up to rain down fists! Jericho paces and soaks up more heat before he drags Bandido up.

Jericho puts Bandido in a corner, CHOPS him down, then drags him back up. Jericho CHOPS Bandido in the corner again, but Bandido turns it around to CHOP back! And CHOP! And CHOP! And then CHOP!! Fans fire up with Bandido and he whips corner to corner. Jericho bounces off buckles and Bandido trophy lifts him! Bandido shows he has power on top of speed, and he SLAMS Jericho down! Cover, TWO! Jericho is still in this as Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally for Bandido and he fires off forearms on Jericho. Bandido whips, Jericho BOOTS him back, but then Bandido dodges Jericho again.

Jericho ends up on the apron, he hurries up top, and leaps, into a SUPERKICK! Bandido reels Jericho in, suplexes, holds Jericho up with one arm and he counts along with the fans! We go past ten to TWENTY! We’re still going! THIRTY! Then past that to FORTY!! And then the SLAM at SIXTY!! A full minute stall and fans are thunderous! Bandido staggers up and heads for a corner. Bandido climbs up, takes aim and gives us some Latino Heat! FROG SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but fans chant for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” Bandido drags Jericho back up, fires off forearms, then runs, but into a FLAPJACK!

Jericho runs to BOOT Bandido down! Jericho huffs and puffs and he drags Bandido up. Jericho puts Bandido in the corner to CHOP! And CHOP! And then whip to clothesline in the other corner!

Jericho stands, Bandido leaps, but into a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Bandido survives and Jericho is frustrated. Bandido goes to the apron and Jericho goes out after him. Jericho drags Bandido up, CLUBS him, and then he reels Bandido in.

Bandido holds the ropes to fight the suplex, but Jericho CLUBS away on him! Jericho keeps trying, Bandido throws more elbows, then he turns around to fire forearms! Jericho JABS Bandido’s already bloody nose! But Bandido RANAS Jericho to the floor!! Fans are thunderous again as both men are down and AEW goes picture in picture!

The ref checks on both men, and somehow they’re both okay to continue. Jericho and Bandido slowly stir, the ring count is climbing, and we’re at 5 of 10 with both men still down. Bandido and Jericho finally start to sit up, the count is 7 of 10, both Bandido and Jericho slide in at 9! Jericho crawls over to Bandido, drags him up by his hair, and CHOPS! Bandido CHOPS back!

Bandido drags Jericho up, whips him to ropes, but Jericho denies the dropkick! LIONSAULT!! Just made it! Cover, TWO!! Bandido survives and Jericho is frustrated. Jericho drags Bandido up, throws some knees, and then he suplexes. Bandido slips out, shoves Jericho and gets around, CRUCIFIX DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives again and Bandido can’t believe it! The ref defends the count so Bandido reels Jericho in. Gut wrench to a torture rack, but Jericho blocks the knee! Jericho trips Bandido to get the WALLS OF JERICHO! Bandido endures and fans rally up! Bandido reaches out, crawls, but Jericho sits deep!

Bandido keeps fighting forward as the fans rally! Bandido gives it one more gasp, and he gets the ROPEBREAK! Fans fire up but Jericho thinks he’s won. Fans boo and the ref points it out to Jericho.

Where’s the honor in that!? Jericho makes Bobby Cruise get in the ring to make the official announcement, and then he has Bobby hold the mic up for him. Jericho has the music cut to say the Ring of Jericho Era has begun! He is changing what ROH is, desecrate its legacy, destroy its legend, and beat every great champion that has ever held “The Ring of Jericho” title! Jericho will continue with BRYAN DANIELSON! October 12th, in Toronto, Canada, Jericho dares Bryan to fight him for the ROH World Championship! Jericho will destroy every ROH champion, commentator, referee and announcer! What?

LOW BLOW to Bobby Cruise!! AND A JUDAS EFFECT!! Jericho’s reign of terror over ROH begins tonight, but will the American Dragon be able to end it in two weeks?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite to keep things going from last week’s awesome Grand Slam events, as well as set up the anniversary and following events. We got a great opening segment from the JAS, and those purple suits honestly looked really good. Poor Luigi Primo, though. I don’t know if the bucket hat is supposed to mean something, but it does work as a disappointing gift for such a big night. Garcia of course pushes forward towards defecting from the JAS, and Bryan joining in was a good touch. Great match from Bryan VS Menard tonight, and Bryan & Garcia VS Jericho & Sammy is going to be awesome, and it will factor in greatly to the tiebreaker of Bryan VS Jericho.

Jericho VS Bandido was an amazing main event, but I had a feeling Jericho would win. Jericho wants to take on every former ROH World Champion but sets up the tiebreaker, I have a feeling he’s doomed his reign to only last until October 12th. At the same time, there could be any number of “sports entertainment” overbooking shenanigans going on that help Jericho retain. Jericho stating his mission, I would love to see him continue on to then face all those former world champions, such as Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Jay Lethal. Lethal is going to have a great match with Darby, but I feel like Darby is going to win that since it was promised to be truly 1v1.

Great stuff from the rest of the Blackpool Combat Club, such as Yuta confronting MJF and scaring him off to Moxley VS Juice in a great match. I had a feeling Moxley would win so that he can focus on Hangman Page in Cincinnati next. MJF will find a way past Yuta next week, and then he’ll be lurking in Cincinnati, that has to be the cash-in spot. Very good promo from JB to further the story with Christian Cage & Luchasaurus. JB will probably be the one to attack next as retaliation. JB VS Luchasaurus can happen for Full Gear, and Christian’s arm needing time to heal, there’s a chance this story goes all the way to the holidays in December.

Great promo from The Acclaimed and Keith Lee, and a great promo from AFO and Matt Hardy. That Triple Threat for the tag titles is going to be great, but Acclaimed will retain by using the dysfunctional AFO against itself. Then Hardy will support Private Party against Andrade, we can get a great Six Man Tag out of it. Starks of course wins that squash match, that match almost didn’t need to happen here but hey, Starks is still a fan favorite.

And while it was great to hear from Saraya again, something was just a bit awkward about the full women’s segment. Saraya and Britt got at each other pretty well, but did Saraya really need to make a jab at WWE? Especially after the changing of the guard over there and how things have already turned around for the better? Is Tony Khan gonna be petty about the WWE forever? I did appreciate that Saraya is already poised as a supervisor of the women’s division since she got to make the stipulation of the Lumberjack match. And that match was awesome stuff with some good stories set up, such as that match for Hayter VS Willow on Rampage.

Storm retaining makes sense and WOW that second rope piledriver. With Britt worrying about her nose, I am sure Hayter beats Willow and then Hayter really does get the next turn. Storm VS Hayter will be great, and maybe other Heels get to step up. But again, the one thing we need to start seeing is two women’s matches on Dynamite or this is all lip service like WWE gave us years ago with The Authority pinning the bad ratings and ideas on “Constable Corbin.” Quality like this is a great start, but we still need quantity, too.

My Score: 8.8/10
