Trent wobbles but CHOPS back then throws forearms. Trent reels Fenix in, Fenix flails and fights out. Fenix back kicks, hops up, and leaps, DUMDUM STOMPS to the apron!! Even Orange Cassidy is freaking out! Or the approximation of a Freshly Squeezed freak-out.

Fenix puts Trent in, climbs up again, and double jumps for a SPLASH onto knees! Trent hurries up as Fenix flounders. Trent aims, SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE!

The American Nightmare is here!

Cody ascends from below the stage and heads to the ring. Tony Schiavone meets him in the ring to discuss his return, and the ambush. The Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny are one thing, but there’s still the matter of MJF. Cody says his scar is a reminder of his failure. His failure to win the AEW World Championship, and under his self-imposed stipulation, Cody can no longer challenge for that title. But then last week, Cody was under attack from another new enemy, there was no one there to pick him up. His friends are all preoccupied. Dustin and the Bucks are in a blood feud with the Inner Circle. His wife, Brandi, is cutting the hair of women wrestlers. And his best friend, MJF, “kicked me square in the balls.”

Now to the Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny, aka Sutter, Williams and Allie. Cody knows their work, from Beyond Wrestling to Bar Wrestling. All they had to do was ask for a match. But he gets “the pomp and circumstance of wrestling,” just look at his wrestling. They can do this any time, any place, including tonight! Fans are on Cody’s side for that one! And Cody will say this. When they have that match, he’ll even let them pick his partner. But MJF says he’ll never wrestle Cody? That is too much of an absolute for Cody. Cody needs to wrestle MJF. MJF made a decision for him that wasn’t his right to make! Cody handpicked MJF when no one else wanted him. It was either he was too short, that he was too “hood rich” and that his favorite scarf was actually a fake, or that MJF does the worst Cross Rhodes going. “At least they’re botching it on two channels now.” Or maybe the fact that under the lights, MJF is just an nWo Chris Jericho.

But Cody looked past all that. He saw a young, angry, hungry star. Cody was not naive that MJF was a bad guy, but he was Cody’s bad guy. Cody will sweeten the deal. What will it take to get MJF to wrestle Cody? Cody will give up the keys to his Ford Black Ops, one of 300. MJF loves that truck, it can be his. Or how about his watch? Tony Khan bought it for Cody, but it can be MJF’s. Cody will go higher! His Red Bottom Louis Vuittons! Or maybe just some cold hard cash! Justin Roberts brings in a briefcase, and Cody reveals over $50 THOUSAND in real bills. Cody could give a Benjamin Franklin to someone right now. The young gentleman right in the front row, it’s yours. But the rest, that can be MJF’s.

Cody still feels MJF is the future of this business. But education is the passport, so Cody will educate MJF, lacerate him. MJF just needs to name a price! We’re all waiting! “Let’s do this!!” Cody waits for a few moments, but takes his leave. The prizes are left in the ring, but will MJF have a response?

 

Backstage interview with Joey Janela.

The Bad Boy accepts the wild open challenge made by Jon Moxley, but why? “Quite frankly, I’ve got nowhere to sleep tonight. A hospital bed seems quite comfortable.” But jokes aside, Janela wants to make a name for himself! He was one of the first to sign with AEW, yet he’s somehow on the back burner. Moxley, remember the Fyter Fest Unsanctioned Match they went through? “This time, it’s different!” It’ll count for this one. The lights are on, but no one is home. Moxley might have to actually kill Janela. But then Moxley shows up! All he can say is, “Kids.” Moxley heads out, but in a match of two wild cards, who will be walking out of tonight’s main event under their own power?

 

Someone visits the Dark Order website.

This young man types angrily. “I hate all these people.” “I am a human being and they treat me like I am NOTHING!!” He submits his application and…

Evil Uno asks the man, “Are you sure you’re ready?” He says yes. “To lose it all?” Yes. “To sacrifice it all?” Yes! What is his motive for joining? “Revenge.” Then you are ready. Don the mask and be one of them. And then, the man from the subway, who was bullied and had his glasses stepped on. He is asked to look Evil Uno in the eyes. Is he one with the Dark Order? Yes… Will he disown his family for the Dark Order? Yes… Then what is his motive for joining? He just wanted friends…. The young man cries, but that seems to be the wrong response. Stu Grayson is given his orders. He ATTACKS the young man, and the Creepers claw at him! They are everywhere, but they show no mercy.

 

Nyla Rose VS Leva Bates w/ Peter Avalon!

The Native Beast demands respect, and will take it by force if she must. Shanna was her victim last week in a Chicago meet ‘n’ greet. Will Librarian Leva Bates be used to redefine the word “victimized”?

The bell rings and Nyla BOOTS Bates down! Fans fire up as Nyla drags Bates up for knees and a suplex. Nyla hangs Bates out to dry, then goes up top, for a GUILLOTINE KNEE! Fans enjoy the ferocity as Nyla drags Bates up again. Nyla has Bates in position but Peter Avalon gets in! Avalon knows he can’t hit Nyla or it’ll disqualify Bates, so he shushes Nyla instead! Nyla lets Bates go to go after Avalon’s finger! Bates grabs her book and SMACKS Nyla on the back! But Nyla doesn’t flinch! If anything, Nyla is furious! She grabs Bates, but Avalon climbs up. Avalon leaps, but he’s caught! DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM! Nyla drags Bates up and into the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

The rampage continues, but Nyla isn’t done! She drags Bates up as she vows to get that AEW Women’s Championship. Bates gets another BEAST BOMB! Fans start to boo, but who is this climbing up? It’s SHANNA! She hits a crossbody on Nyla! Shanna fires off forearms and chops, but Nyla shoves her. Shanna dodges to keep firing off strikes! Shanna hits a SUPER PUNCH! Then she runs, but into a scoop! POWERSLAM! Nyla looms over Shanna before going out to fetch a TABLE! Nyla puts the table in the ring, sets it up, and looks to recreate the Chicago incident! Nyla drags Shanna over, the ref warns Nyla not to, and Nyla reconsiders. To go after the REF!! The referee gets the BEAST BOMB through the table!!

Britt Baker watches from the crowd in shock as Nyla still gives Shanna a Beast Bomb, onto the ref! The Native Beast has gone wild, but takes her leave as the rest of the AEW officiating staff come out to help Shanna and their fellow referee. What will the consequences be for the Native Beast’s brutality?

 

Le Champion is here!

Chris Jericho heads to the ring, with Jake Hager in tow. Jericho has a Little Bit of the Bubbly and Hager has a clipboard. Jericho gets a mic to say that Le Champion is in Champaign! Wait, don’t get too excited, it’s not like anyone from here ever made a damn thing of themselves. Only losers come out of Champaign. No one from here has been as successful as Jericho. Fans chant for “Tony Khan!” because he was in fact born here. Jericho doesn’t know who that is. But speaking off a success, 12 THOUSAND bottles of the Bubbly sold the first week! Because everything Jericho touches turns to gold. Get your own at the official website, just in time for the holidays.

Speaking of holidays, the “charlatans” of AEW told Jericho that he is contractually obligated to have one more match in the year 2019. The last Dynamite of the year, 12/18/19, Jericho must have one more match. But the thing is, Le Champion has the option to choose his opponent. So what Jericho did is put together a little list. Fans love the sound of that! “Get out of 2016.” This is not THAT list, it is “The Lexicon of Le Champion.” Fans cheer for “Lexicon! Lexicon!” And on said lexicon is those he refuses to wrestle this year. At the very top, Jon Moxley. Fans boo. Second is Cody, but that’s because he can’t.

Then there’s the Young Bucks, Papa Buck, Uncle Buck, Buck Owens, Moxley again, Hangman Page, Diamond Dallas Page, Paige, Moxley again, Scorpio Sky, 2 Cool Scorpio, all the members of The Scorpions rock band, Moxley, Michael Nakazawa, Kenny Omega, Kenny Ortega, Kenny Shields, Kenny Chesney, Kenny from South Park, Moxley yet again, that chubby guy with the popcorn in the fifth row, the ugly guy with the glasses in the third row, Moxley again, Darby Allin, Rick Allen, Allen Jones, Moxley, Evil Uno, Angry Dos, Hateful Tres, MOXLEY, and Marty- Wait, someone is coming out! It’s the Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy is on Luchasaurus’ shoulders while Marko Stunt is out in front! They all join Jericho in the ring, because none of them were on the Lexicon.

Marko gets a mic and hands it to Luchasaurus, but Jericho wants them to slow down. Jericho was about to finish the Lexicon, because next up was any and all dinosaurs and small children. Sorry. Luchasaurus growls, but then says, “You think that’s how I sound?” Didn’t think he could talk? Jericho probably doesn’t realize Luchasaurus has a Masters Degree in Medieval History. Luchasaurus lists off names, but it doesn’t surprise him that Jericho put dinosaurs on the Lexicon, “we’ve been marginalized for 65 millions years!” As far as Marko goes, yeah he’s small for his age. But he’s more man than Jericho will ever be! Fans are on Marko’s side, too. Jericho says Marko is small for any age. And if it’s not these two, then is it really… him? Jungle Boy is the last one left! And fans are on his side, too!

Jericho asks JB if he has what it takes to face Le Champion. “You haven’t even won a match, boy!” And he doesn’t even talk! The Hollywood golden boy, Jack Perry! Everyone loves JB, so why  not. Jericho wants JB to understand this: “I think you’re a piece of sh*t.” And JB won’t even last 10 minutes with Y2J! Can he understand with his no tongue and no brain? JB takes the mic away from Jericho! And JB says he can last 10 minutes with Jericho. He’ll even kick the old man’s ass! Then a brawl breaks out! Jungle Boy dropkicks Jericho out! Hager gets away from the Tail Whip, and the Inner Circle throws a tantrum! Jericho throw things, and tells Jungle Boy to wait and see what happens on December 18th! We have two weeks to go, will they be the last weeks Le Champion is on top?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

In regards to what Nyla Rose did to Leva Bates, Shanna and the officiating referee after her match, Nyla Rose is suspended from in-ring competition until further notice! Will this only further her violent temperament?

 

Kris Statlander VS Hikaru Shida!

The referee warns Shida, but Shida simply stands the chair up. This is business as usual, because Shida runs to use the chair to launch! But Kris knows this move by now, and catches Shida to ram her into barriers! Kris drags Shida up and puts her in the ring to cover, TWO! Kris handspring leg drops on Shida, then somersault sentons! Cover, TWO! Kris drags Shida up but Shida fights back. Fans rally as Shida rocks Kris and suplexes. Kris blocks, fights back, but Shida kicks low.

The #1 Contender loses to the Greatest Alien! But oh no, the lights go out! A gong sounds… “There are 8 million ways to die. She’s one.” Yes, Awesome Kong and Brandi Rhodes are here! They head down the ramp and Brandi has a mic. “People often loathe what they can’t understand, because it scares them.” People have tried to explain what Kong and Brandi are doing, and been asking, “Who the hell do they think they are?” Brandi is going to shed some light on the subject. She and Kong get in the ring but Kris stands her ground. Brandi and Kong are the Nightmare Collective. They do the jobs no one wants to do, and in the way they see fit, no questions asked. Brandi is not here for Kris, yet she’s about to get up in Brandi’s business. This is a rather interesting situation, and an opportunity for Kris.

The Collective is part of a grander family, and families aim to grow. So here and now, Kris can be the first. Pledge to the Nightmare Collective and you will be taken care of. Fans don’t want Kris to do it, but Brandi wants an answer. Kris’s response seems to be a no, but Awesome Kong gets in her face. Someone else wants to pledge? Who is this in the front row? A female fan? She seems to be a regular, according to commentary. Brandi allows this mystery woman to join, and she offers up some hair. Kris and Shida get away in the meantime, and the hair is taken. Brandi pats the woman on the head, but more hair is taken.

AEW goes picture in picture as the cutting of hair goes to the extreme. The new pledge seems fine with that, and Brandi asks for an electric shaver. One is presented, and they buzz this woman’s hair. So much hair is taken! But the pledge is thankful to be part of the Collective. Who is this woman? What role will she serve in this “family”?

The bell rings and Moxley circles with Janela. They tie up, Moxley waistlocks and slams Janela down, then mounts to a cover, ONE. Moxley steps on Janela and eggs the Bad Boy on. Janela gets up and ties up with Moxley again to get a headlock. Moxley slips out to get a headlock of his own, then the takedown. Janela works his way up, powers out, but Moxley runs him over! Janela gets to a corner but Moxley runs in. Janela goes up and over, things speed up and Janela dodges to elbow Moxley down! Janela soaks up the cheers and jeers but Moxley is up. Janela chops but it doesn’t make Moxley flinch. Moxley CHOPS and Janela is stinging! Janela CHOPS and Moxley feels that one. Moxley CHOPS again, Janela CHOPS, it’s a CHOP fight! Until Moxley headbutts!

Janela staggers but Moxley corner clotheslines hard! Moxley whips, Janela holds ropes and boots back. Janela sends Moxley out to the ramp, then climbs up top to LEAP! The ax handles hit and Moxley tumbles away. Fans are divided as Janela drags Moxley around. Moxley reverses the whips, Janela rebounds off ropes and Moxley LARIATS! Moxley talks to the camera as AEW goes picture in picture.

The referee tells Moxley to step back while he checks on Janela. Moxley puts Janela in the ring and kicks him around. Cover, TWO, but Moxley drops an elbow! Cover, TWO! Moxley digs a knee in as he pulls Janela’s arms back. Moxley grinds Janela down, but Janela fights his way up. Moxley just STOMPS Janela back down! Moxley stomps Janela in the stomach, then ties up the legs for a Queen Angelito Stretch! Janela endures as Moxley pulls him back. Janela bites Moxley’s fingers! Moxley lets the legs free and Janela gets away. Moxley runs in but Janela put shim on the apron. Moxley tumbles down and around, and Janela ax handles him down. Moxley rams Janela back, then CHOPS! Moxley whips but Janela reverses, sending Moxley into railing!

AEW returns to single picture as Janela brings Moxley back towards the ramp. Moxley gets in the ring and Janela climbs in, but Moxley kicks low. Moxley X-Plexes Janela down! Cover, TWO! Moxley tries again, ONE! He tries a third time, TWO! Moxley drags Janela up and back tot he ramp. The ref reprimands Moxley but Moxley underhooks and butterfly suplexes, but Janela sips out! Janela roundhouses, then runs to TORNADO DDT Moxley to the ramp! Janela grits his teeth as he climbs up top. Moxley is in a drop zone but he gets out of the way of the stomps. Janela DIVES! Janela puts Moxley back in, climbs back up, but Moxley stops him with forearms. Moxley climbs up, underhooks, but Janela fights free! Janela adjusts, and SUPER ROLLING POWERBOMBS Moxley down! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up as Moxley and Janela get back up. They brawl with big forearms, Moxley knees over and over, then runs. Janela throws a big forearm! Moxley rebounds, misses, rolling elbow from Janela! Janela runs into a kick, Moxley runs into a SUPERKICK! Moxley LARIATS back! But Janela escapes Paradigm Shift for a SNAP GERMAN into buckles! Fans rally as Moxley goes out by the timekeeper’s table. But Janela is up top and LEAPS! They both go crashing through the table!! Janela hurries to get Moxley back in as fans lose their minds. Janela is up top again, MACHO ELBOW! Cover, TWO!?! Moxley survives and Janela can’t believe it!

Fans duel as Janela goes up top again. Moxley is up on the apron and goes after Janela. Moxley climbs up, Janela fights back, and the two brawl up top. Moxley gets the underhooks, SUPER PARADIGM SHIFT! Just like he did to Darby Allin! But this isn’t enough, Moxley hits DEATH RIDER!! Cover, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The maniac does it again! Undefeated in AEW, it’s why Moxley is the true #1 contender! But Le Champion comes out to interrupt the celebrations, stealing Moxley’s entrance style! Jericho and the Inner Circle are coming down from the top of the stairs among the fans. Moxley doesn’t care about numbers, he wants them to come down and fight. The Inner Circle keeps their eyes on Moxley as Jericho holds up his title. The Lexicon of Le Champion already named Moxley multiple times, but will Jericho be able to keep Moxley away in the New Year?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A pretty great episode for Dynamite, but I really feel like the jabs taken at WWE are getting to be annoying. It is one thing if fans want to say things about how AEW compares to WWE, or more specifically NXT, but fans who want to choose sides will choose sides and while it isn’t really necessary, it’s their prerogative. And while I get that this is a competition between AEW and WWE, they don’t need to keep doing this kind of stuff. It is one thing when a company pokes fun at WWE occasionally, but it seems like AEW does it every possible chance they can, to where it’s at least once a week. In a vacuum, Cody’s line about the botched Cross Rhodes being a jab at Damien Priest’s “Reckoning,” was good since Priest really doesn’t do it very well. But when you have this on top of multiple references to “that company” and a commercial outright quoting groups saying “AEW [insert synonym for “beats”] NXT,” it is just getting tiresome and petty. But this topic could be, and probably has been, an article all itself so I’ll just leave it at that.

Speaking of Cody, I really liked his challenge back to MJF, offering up all of that stuff (in kayfabe) to the Dynamite Diamond Ring bearer and shoot giving that kid a $100 bill. I still don’t get where Allie and her new trio factor in, other than they have their own issues with Cody and the Nightmare Family. I feel it still could’ve waited until some of the Cody VS MJF stuff was resolved, it feels cluttered like Spider-Man 3. But I also do appreciate that Cody makes reference to all of his Elite friends not being there for him because of their stories, that at least is a logical tie-in to everything else. I assume Cody and QT lose, but with QT taking the pin.

I was surprised the Six Man Tag was the opener but it was awesome! Dustin and the Bucks keep things going between The Elite and the Inner Circle, and it was great that The Elite win. Next week’s Texas Street Fight will be a great continuation for the Bucks VS PNP specifically, too. Fenix VS Trent was a great match, and one thing from this AEW showed was that even the post-match picture-in-picture is something to pay attention to. Pentagon VS Daniels was also a great match, and both Lucha Brothers winning tonight is great, but I’m curious if they’ll ever be forced to face each other in singles competition if it means one gets an AEW World Championship match.

Statlander VS Shida was a great match, and it was a great surprise for Statlander to win! It makes it less obvious who will be facing Riho before the year is over. I almost thought Statlander was going to join this “Nightmare Collective,” but seems not. I didn’t really get what is going on with that, but the “fan” pledging to the group is a bit Serena Deeb joining the Straight Edge Society. Chances are not everyone remembers that, but I do and that’s what this felt like. Nyla Rose did great tonight as the other monster Heel in AEW. Britt Baker was ringside but it seems it was just to recreate her shocked reaction from NXT WarGames. In a vacuum, a great reference for AEW to make, but back to my earlier point, probably a bit random and unnecessary. Nyla being “suspended” does help clear up the last few weeks in 2019 and could help Nyla make a surprise return in 2020 just as a new champion is crowned.

Once again, Jericho’s brand of comedy is amazing. His new “Lexicon of Le Champion” was very “1001 holds ARMBAR” from back in the day, with how Moxley was on there over and over. Luchasaurus and all of the Jurassic Express getting to be part of a promo was great, too. As much as we would’ve loved to see Luchasaurus or Stunt going for the title, Luchasaurus VS Hager has to be first. Jungle Boy getting a match with Jericho to end the year will be great, but we know Jericho wins. GREAT stuff from Moxley and Janela, even in a normal match. The timekeeper table spot was great, and the tease of a ramp spot was good. Naturally Moxley wins, and naturally Jericho copies Moxley with the ending moments. Jungle Boy may be getting the last match of 2019, but Moxley has to be the first title match in 2020.

My Score: 9.1/10

Winners: FTR, by pinfall (still ROH World Tag Team Champions)

Cash & Dax are still the best tag team in the world! But wait, Austin & Colten Gunn come out to mockingly praise the champs. Will the Ass Boys get their turn at the titles come ROH Final Battle?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs speaks.

He’s back home in Oakland, California as he says, “When you open up the Book of Hobbs, you look death in the face. And you read word-for-word, and look in my eyes, you believe the good word. This is life. A life you know nothing about. A life you want nothing a part of. So whatever higher being you believe in, I want you to look up in the sky, I want you to look down low. Just like everyone has taken everything that’s meant something to me, I’m taking everything that means something to you.” Who will Hobbs take from first to be back where he wants to be?

 

Chris Jericho is here!

The Wizard is still Le Champion! After a brutal and bloody battle with Tomohiro Ishii, Jericho is still #THEOCHO! The rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society walks out with him while Chicago sings Judas for them. Jericho and Garcia chest bump just to show that the bloody spot on Jericho’s chest doesn’t bother him. Angelo Parker starts by telling Chicago to pipe down because Cool Hand Ange has something to say: “ALL HONOR THE OCHO~!” Fans are  bit torn on that but it’s the truth. Jericho says, “Is there any doubt that I am the greatest ROH champion of all time? Any doubt?” Fans are again torn.

Jericho says he’s beaten everyone thrown in his way, including in one of the greatest matches in Dynamite history against Tomohiro Ishii! Fans do agree with that a bit. “I’ve bled for this title, I have sweat for this title, I have earned this title. I am The Ocho. And not even Claudio Castagnoli can come out on the stage and give me a cheap shot, not even that’s gonna slow me down!” So the question to everyone is: who will uncrown the king of ROH? The fans? That four-eyes in the fifth row? But wait, here comes Claudio! Jericho’s jaw starts feeling sore again as Claudio says, “Chris, you asked if there’s any doubt that you are the greatest ROH champion. Well, there is no doubt in my mind that you are not.

“I know that I can beat you. I beat you twice! The problem is, I started doubting myself when I couldn’t beat you when it counts. And to me, the most important thing is believing in yourself. When I came here, I wanted to be the best professional wrestler I can be. And I know I am the best professional wrestler when I don’t doubt myself. So to me, I don’t just need to beat you for this ROH World Champion, I have to beat you!” Jericho says, “Okay, you have to beat me. Maybe you should be more worried about the Blackpool Combat Club since they’re falling apart at the seams, Claudio.”

Claudio says that is a problem. He cannot focus on anything else. He hasn’t slept since Saturday and losing to Jericho. Claudio can’t sleep, focus, can barely talk. It all bothers him. He NEEDS a shot at the ROH World Championship. So he wants another shot at Jericho’s title? Should Jericho give Claudio a shot? Chicago seems to think so! Jericho tells Claudio, “You want it? Forget it.” Fans boo and the JAS laughs. Claudio sighs as Jericho says there is nothing Claudio has to offer Jericho. But then Matt Menard says maybe there is something he can offer.

“Daddy Magic has an idea! Claudio, you’re a hell of a professional wrestler. But let’s not forget there was a time when you were a fantastic sports entertainer. I think you would make an excellent addition to the Jericho Appreciation Society. How about that, Chris?” Jericho likes how Daddy Magic thinks! He’s making Jericho’s nipples hard. Jericho tells Claudio that despite the fact Claudio sucker punched him, Jericho will give Claudio that one more chance. BUT if Claudio loses, and he will lose, he will join the JAS! Claudio considers that challenge.

“You’re right. I was a great sports entertainer. And I still am a great sports entertainer. And I would be a tremendous asset to the Jericho Appreciation Society. But I know deep in my heart, despite all my doubts, and I have a feeling you know as well, I’m an even better professional wrestler! Look in my eyes, Chris. Come Final Battle, I will throw you around like a little kid, and I will beat you for that ROH World Championship! I’ll bring honor back to this title, and I will be the NEW ROH World Champion!” Fans like the sound of that! But will December 10th be Claudio’s final battle as a pro-wrestler?

 

Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

Renee Paquette sits with the former champion, and knows she and Hayter had an amazing match at Full Gear. Unfortunately, Toni did lose the title. But Renee wants to talk about how Hayter won. Toni says deep down, she’s actually proud. She always knew Hayter could do it, and at Full Gear, they tore the house down. And they got to see just how tough Hayter is. But we didn’t see Jamie Hayter beat Toni Storm, she needed Britt & Rebel again. And if Hayter can look in the mirror and be cool with that, fine. But Toni could never do that. And that’s the difference between them.

Renee steers things to the news from Dynamite that there is no more “interim” and even Toni’s reign counts as a true world title reign, what is her reaction? Well just look at Toni’s face. She never saw the title as “interim.” She went out there, week after week, holding onto the title as if it was always official, because that is what this division deserves. Then with all of these things, what’s next? Toni broke her face losing the belt, she’ll break it again to get it back. When will the Lightning From Down Under strike back against the Hayter?

 

Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake!

The Relentless Icons won another big PPV tag match, but they’re not slowing down here! Will Darby get back on the singles track against one half of the Workhorsemen?

The bell rings and Darby stares Henry down. Fans rally for Darby, he and Henry slowly circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Henry arm-drags. Darby holds on, fight sup, and arm-drags back. They’re still locked up collar ‘n’ elbow, and Henry fights back up. Darby gets around to a waistlock, Henry switches but Darby switches back. Henry snapmares and KICKS but Darby just smiles. Henry snapmares again and KICKS again, but Darby just stands up. Henry snapmares but Darby cradles, TWO!! Henry knees low and snarls. Henry whips but Darby sunset flips! Henry stays up, drags Darby up in a deadlift suplex, but Darby gest to the apron!

Henry ROCKS Darby, runs, but Darby goes up and over! Darby comes back to DIVE into JD! Scrap Metal takes the hit for the Saint, and Darby gets in. Things speed up, Henry fireman’s carries to HOTSHOT Darby! Henry goes out, SPITS at Darby, then APRON STO’s Darby down! Henry taunts the fans while AEW goes picture in picture.

Henry drags Darby around and CLUBS him on the back. Henry whips Darby hard into railing! Darby drops to his knees and Henry kicks him down. Henry drags Darby back up, puts him in the ring, and watches Sting as he gets back in. Henry paces around while soaking up heat, and then he gives Darby a NECK TWIST! He even holds on after as he falls! Henry KICKS Darby around, wraps him up in a straitjacket stretch, but Darby endures. Darby fights up, knees low and throws body shots. Henry shoves, Darby ducks the kick to fire off palm strikes and a HEADBUTT! Darby hops on but Henry shrugs the Yoshi-tonic off!

Henry waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX, but Darby lands on his feet! Darby ducks ‘n’ dodges to COFFIN- GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Henry is seething but he stalks Darby to a corner. Sting coaches Darby up but Henry whips Darby corner to corner hard! Darby falls in a heap, Henry pats himself on the back. Henry mocks the fans booing him, and he drags Darby up to whip the other way. Darby hits buckles hard again and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Henry has Darby in a Tree of Woe! Henry KICKS away on Darby’s chest, the ref counts, but Henry lets off at 4. Henry soaks up more heat, then runs in to HESITATION DROPKICK! Henry sits Darby up, and then hits a DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and Henry is losing his cool. Henry goes to the corner and climbs up. Darby moves and the King Kong Knee hits mat! Darby runs in to CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Henry survives and slides out of the ring. JD helps Henry around the way but Darby rushes over. Darby puts Henry in, but then Henry distracts the ref so JD can pop-up and CLOBBER Darby!

JD drags Darby back up and puts him in for Henry, but here comes Sting! Henry covers, TWO!! JD turns around, Sting CLOBBERS him! Sting whips JD into railing! Henry is furious at Sting, but he hoists Darby up top. Henry climbs up after Darby and says this is for Sting! SUPERPLEX! And then a roll through to a suplex, but Darby turns it into a SCORPION DEATHDROP! Fans fire up and Darby roars! Darby goes to the corner, he climbs up top, and COFFIN DROPS!! Cover, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Relentless as always, it’s another big win for Darby! Sting joins Darby in the ring to check on him, will they both be rolling to the top of the ranks?

 

Backstage interview with Athena.

Lexi Nair notes that The Fallen Goddess is back from suspension, and Athena asks why was she suspended! “We have this big ass TV, a billionaire boss, modern technology, but yet no footage. What am I supposed to do? I got docked a week’s pay, I’ve been suspended, what else do you need from me?” Maybe an apology to referee, Aubrey Edwards? Oh! A public apology! Well, sorry. Oh, then she’ll be reinstated for Monday. Good, dismissed. Athena scares Lexi off, and then talks to the camera. “I was wondering how long it was going to take you to show up, Mercedes. I beat trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler, and finally you show up!

“So when are you gonna put the ROH Women’s Championship on the line? Cuz I’m waiting, and I’m game.” The Fallen Goddess is aiming for the OG Badass, but will she be the one shot down?

 

Hikaru Shida VS Queen Aminata!

Speaking of returns, The Full Metal Warrior is back in action, and she is surely wanting after more gold! She is still International Ribbon Tag Team Champion and Regina de Wave Champion, but will she find her way back to THE AEW Women’s World Championship?

Wait, before the match begins, The Bunny and Penelope Ford frolic their way out here. What do they have with Shida? Aminata just CLOBBERS her from behind in the distraction! The bell rings, Aminata bumps Shida off buckles, then puts her through the ropes. Aminata goes to the apron to BOOT WASH Shida into the post! Shida flounders, Aminata drags her up and around to Alabama Lift into the- NO, Shida sunset flips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! Aminata escapes, kicks low, and she runs, but Shida follows! Aminata redirects herself but Shida DECKS her! And then FALCONW ARROW!

Shida roars and fans fire up! Shida aims, for the KATANA!! Cover, Shida wins!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The warrior deals with the queen, but what about the Superbad Girls? They back down for now, but will they pounce on their prey soon enough?

 

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

Well, more like this afternoon’s. But the World’s Strongest Man says it was a tag match originally, but was promoted to a Trios Match given the history between LFI and Dark Order. But uh, where’s Preston Vance? John Silver says they really have no idea. Evil Uno is searching, but Alex Reynolds promises Number Ten will be here. The LFI have been annoying the crap out of them for months, so this ends here! But Braxton “The Blade” Sutter says, “Nah nah nah nah! Listen, newsflash, slick! It doesn’t matter if Ten shows up, Fourteen, 26, 37! All we know is the three of us are here to kick ass!”

And Andy “The Butcher” Williams says Blade ain’t lying, there WILL be an ass-kicking party tonight! The only ones invited are The Dark Order! Rush says he is sick and tired of talking, he wants to fight! He is ready to fight! He NEEDS to fight! “Let’s go, perros!” Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will El Toro, Butcher & Blade be satisfied with just Three & Four? Or will Vance come through and back up his friends?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Lexi Nair congratulates them on their title defense, adding to their amazing year. Dax says yes, it has been a great year. But please, let him and Cash handle it from here. Dax says, “What a great ’22 it’s been. I’m told I’ve got 30 seconds. What a great ’22 it’s been, and this is my best friend in the world and I love him more than anybody else, aside from maybe my family. And we have a great legacy as a tag team, but 2022 has done something for me that no other year has done. It has allowed me to etch my name with the greatest wrestlers in the world, so right now, I gotta shoot my shot before the year is done, okay?

“I am challenging for Wednesday night, I challenge the best wrestler in the world. What do you say, Bryan Danielson, huh? Me and you, Wednesday night. Top Guys, out.” This match is NOW official! Will Dax the Ax slay the American Dragon?

 

Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS Rush, The Butcher & The Blade w/ LFI!

Preston Vance may be Number Ten, but he’s been the number one prospect for La Faccion Ingobernable. But he’s also been resisting their offers because of loyalties to the Dark Order. Will he come through for Alex Reynolds & John Silver? Or will El Toro Blanco and his mercenaries make him pay for being so stubborn?

As the Dark Order make their entrance, there is no Number Ten, so this looks to be 3v2. The bell rings, and the brawl is on 3v2! Silver gets mugged and thrown out but Reynolds takes it to Blade! Rush ROCKS Silver, he and Butcher whip Silver into railing! Blade whips Reynolds but Reynolds dodges in the corner to elbow smash! Reynolds keeps moving, FLYING ELBOW and a BOOT! Fans fire up but Butcher anchors Reynolds. Blade CLOBBERS Reynolds, drags him up and puts him in the corner. Blade CHOPS, Rush pulls Reynolds’ hair, and Butcher tags in. They mug Reynolds with a DOUBLE HEADBUTT!

Butcher drags Reynolds up to COHP him back down! Tag back to Blade, Reynolds throws body shots but Blade suplexes him. Reynolds knees free, shoves Blade into Butcher, and he scrambles to tag Silver! Johnny Hungy dodges the mercs to DECK Rush! Silver ROUNDHOUSES Butcher, FLAPJACKS Blade, then runs! Silver ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Butcher! And then he OLYMPIC SLAMS Blade! Fans fire up with the Meat Man, and he runs to DIVE onto Butcher! But Butcher catches him and feeds him to Rush’s HAYMAKER! LFI drags Silver up to put in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

Blade rains down fists, then he tags in Butcher. Butcher stomps Silver, drags him up, and then throws him out! Rush has the spare cables to LASH Silver! And then CHOKE him! The ref is busy keeping Reynolds back and Rush gets away with choking Silver! Rush drags Silver up and CHOPS him, the ref reprimands that, so Rush puts Silver in. Butcher bumps Silver off buckles, CHOPS him more, then stalks him as he crawls on the mat. Butcher brings Silver over, tags in Blade, and the mercs mug Silver. Blade stands Silver up to ROCK him with a right but Silver throws body shots! Silver THROWS Blade out!

Silver crawls but Rush storms in to kick him down. Rush kicks Silver but Silver BOOTS Rush! But Blade trips Reynolds off the apron! Blade hurries away and Butcher CLOBBERS Reynolds! Blade puts Silver in the corner, Rush runs to jump and BOOT! Rush tranquilos while the ref reprimands them all. Blade drags Silver up to KICK him in the back. Blade clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Silver down. Silver endures, fights up, and throws body shots over and over! Silver then KICKS and KICKS and ROCKS Blade! Silver runs, but Blade CLOBBERS him! Tag to Butcher and Butcher drags Silver up to CHOP back down!

Butcher stalks Silver to ropes, drags him back up, and CLUBS him back down. Butcher CHOKES Silver on ropes, and Rush tranquilos while digging his boot in! The ref reprimands them both, Butcher lets off and Rush shrugs. Rampage returns to single picture and Blade tags in. The mercs drag Silver up, fireman’s carry and TOSS, but Silver blocks the kick! Silver spins Blade, SUPERKICKS Butcher, then gets around Blade to STANDING SLICED BREAD! Fans fire up for Silver as he crawls over, but Rush CLOBBERS Reynolds! Fans boo but Rush looms over Silver. Rush kicks Silver around, stomps him, but lets off to argue with the ref.

Bunny talks trash on Silver but here come Uno, Negative One and… YES, NUMBER TEN!! Vance runs to the ring, he gets right up in Rush’s face, and… He CLOBBERS Silver!! Fans boo as Vance is no longer loyal to Dark Order! The mercs hold Uno back, Rush hits BULL’S HORNS on Silver!! Cover, LFI win!! Then Uno is sent hard into the steps! Reynolds rushes in at Vance but Rush CLOBBERS him first! Feed to the DISCUS!! Negative One can’t believe it! His best friend uses his father’s move in this betrayal! Vance flips off Chicago, and Rush drags Uno into the ring. Uno pleads with Vance, but Vance stands him up, for a DISCUS!!

Fans are booing harder as Rush & Vance RIP UP Uno’s mask! They then bring a table to ringside! Reynolds is brought over, Vance and Rush drag him up on the apron, DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM through the table!! Chicago is thunderous with boos and jeers as Vance puts up the Ingobernable fist! Vance walks up the ramp, Negative One asks why, but Vance just throws the mask down at his feet! Number Ten is no more, Preston Vance has shown his true colors! Will this be a new era for LFI in AEW?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, especially for being on at a different time (blame NHL if you wanted this to be on later). FTR VS Top Flight was a great opener, but I figured FTR would win. Ass Boys/Gunn Sons showing up at the end was also a natural move, they’ve been slowly (perhaps too slowly) building to FTR VS Gunns for the ROH World Tag titles and Final Battle is definitely the place to do that. Hell, it’ll be even more obvious should Austin & Colten do something during Dax VS Bryan on Dynamite next week. And speaking of Final Battle, no offense to Claudio, it might’ve just been Chicago being rowdy, but that promo with Jericho wasn’t as crisp as it should’ve been. Jericho VS Claudio II with the stipulation of Claudio joining JAS if he loses is a nice move, and definitely makes it feel like either guy could win.

Great match from Darby VS Henry, but I’m surprised nothing really came of it. I suppose there’s a way to give us Relentless Icons VS Workhorsemen, even though I don’t know what that really does for Darby & Sting. Good promo from Toni Storm, and it was clear that she broke her nose with the puffy black eyes she had. Storm isn’t done with Hayter, clearly, but she’ll have to fight her way up to the front of the line. Ford & Bunny showing up during Shida’s match was an interesting tease, I’m just not sure at what. Perhaps Shida bringing her tag team partner, Ibuki Hoshi, to bring Ice Ribbon Wrestling into AEW’s family of partnerships?

And we got great stuff out of the main event. The Dark Order VS LFI in the main event seemed a bit odd, but it foreshadowed something big happening, so of course Vance turns and joins LFI. It is a shame that The Dark Order has fallen so far since the passing of Mr. Brodie Lee, but I suppose it was inevitable. Vance giving up his mask was obviously more symbolic than anything, as The Dark Order had moved away from everyone wearing masks, and it was really just Vance and Uno. Brodie Lee said to wear a mask, Vance was holding onto that for the memory, but now he doesn’t care because he’s been losing. Vance is going to be a strong addition to LFI, he can be their midcard guy while Rush is a top title guy, and this might be what Vance needs to get up to that level.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

William Regal is in the ring!

Fans boo as he says, “Ladies and gentlemen, would you like to hear from your new world champion, Mr. Friedman?” Fans cheer that! Well, we will hear from him, next week. Fans boo again. Regal says that Mr. Friedman has no time for such places as… Where are they again? Chicago? Oh… Fans chant, “We Want Punk!” but Regal says MJF is on the set of a major motion picture. Fans are surely all wondering, “What is the union between Mr. Friedman and myself?” Fans chant “F U REGAL!” and he just smirks. “So uncouth.” But Regal says he’ll tell us this: a number of weeks ago, Regal sent an email to MJF that we will not be privy to until next week when MJF explains everything.

So next week on Dynamite, the Devil Himself, your NEW AEW World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, will be here. But someone who is here now is MOXLEY! The former AEW World Champion goes to the ring from the crowd, staring the snarling Sir William Regal down. Fans tell Regal, “YOU F’D UP!” as Moxley gets ever closer. Moxley slowly steps into the ring, but then Bryan Danielson rushes out here! Bryan keeps Moxley from getting at Regal and fans boo! Moxley shoves Bryan but Bryan stands his ground between Moxley and Regal. Bryan gets the mic to say, “Hey! Hey! Hey, listen, Mox. Listen, listen. Hey!”

Bryan says he doesn’t know why Regal did that, and it was a bad thing, but they’ve all done bad things! Fans boo because this was really bad. But Bryan asks Moxley to please not go after Regal. Regal has a bad neck and two bleeds on his brain, Moxley can’t hurt Regal. Moxley stands down, but he is pacing with the bottled up anger. Fans still want Moxley to hit someone. Bryan SLAPS Moxley, and then he apologizes! Bryan then gets on his knees to BEG Moxley to listen! Bryan knows the fans are booing but the struggles that Moxley has dealt with, Bryan’s dad struggled with those same things. This is more than just wrestling.

Bryan says when his dad had those struggles, Bryan didn’t understand. There was only one person who could teach him how and that was Regal. Bryan wants Moxley to tune the fans out and listen to just him. Because of Regal, Bryan could understand his father’s struggles. And for the last ten years of his life before he passed, Bryan was there to love his father, because of Regal! Now just imagine, please, just try to imagine someone teaching Moxley’s daughter to love him in spite of his struggles. Fans call BS but Bryan asks Moxley to spare Regal for Bryan’s sake. Bryan loves Regal. Fans boo that, too.

Moxley sighs and leans against the ropes. Fans keep telling Moxley to go after Regal and Moxley can’t tune them out. Moxley glares at Regal but he looks at Bryan. He takes the mic, Bryan steps aside, and Moxley steps right up to Regal as he says, “Your Lordship… I only want one thing from you. I want you to run. Run far away, as far away as you can, and you never, EVER come back. Right now. Walk. And keep on walking.” Moxley drops the mic, that is his one and only warning. Regal steps out of the ring and fans tell him to GTFO. Regal leaves, being spared from the Maniac’s rage. Fans sing “NANA NA NA, HEY HEY HEY, good bye~!”

Moxley is still rather red, but this was the best he could do to show mercy to Regal. As for MJF, will Moxley hunt him down the moment he’s in an arena?

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Renee Paquette tells him the cameras are live, and says we all saw what happened at Full Gear. Where is Keith’s head at after this all came to a head? Keith sighs, but then Swerve steps in. Renee lets them talk in private, and Keith tells Swerve to choose his words wisely. Swerve takes off his sunglasses, Keith takes off his jacket. Swerve looks to the camera, and covers it up. “Let’s talk.” “Without that, huh? Okay.” Is the team formerly known as Swerve In Our Glory still a team at all? Or will they come to an understanding off camera?

 

AEW All-Atlantic Championship: Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends VS Jake Hager w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society!

Freshly Squeezed is coming off a big Ten Man Tag win with his Best Friends, but now he’s back to being a fighting champion. Will Cassidy be able to hold onto the title? Or will Rock Hard Hager make everyone APPRECIATE him?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if, uh… Whatever.

The bell rings, Cassidy steps to Hager, takes off the sunglasses and gives them to the ref. But Hager takes the glasses to put them on! They do go well with the bucket hat. Cassidy grabs for the hat but Hager won’t let him touch it. So Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Cassidy unleashes the “devastating” shin kicks! But Hager swings, only for Cassidy to dodge and SHOTGUN! And kip up! But Hager CLOBBERS Cassidy! Hager talks trash as Cassidy flounders to the corner. Hager storms up, whips corner to corner, but Cassidy tumbles up and out. Cassidy ducks the clothesline to bump Hager off buckles! The purple hat goes flying!

Fans fire up as Hager stares at the hat on the mat. Hager grabs Cassidy with both hands to throw him! Cassidy holds the ropes and he dumps Hager out! Cassidy then sees the hat, and he picks it up! Angelo Parker runs in, OLE as Cassidy baits him with the hat. Matthew Menard runs in, OLE again! Cassidy goes to put the hat but Daniel Garcia snatches it away! Fans boo and Cassidy frowns. Rocky Romero trips Garcia up! And Cassidy has the hat! He ROCKS Hager, DIVES, but Hager catches him! Hager POSTS Cassidy, to then FLAPJACK him on the apron! Parker puts the hat back on Hager! Hager says don’t touch his hat, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Hager flexes while Parker “kicks dirt” at Cassidy. Hager and Garcia secret handshake and then Hager drags Cassidy up. Hager puts Cassidy in the ring, drags him up, and wraps on a BEARHUG! Cassidy endures as Hager carries him around, and then Hager RAMS Cassidy into buckles! Cassidy throws elbows but Hager holds on. Cassidy grabs the hat! Hager thrashes Cassidy around for that! Cassidy drops the hat so Hager drops Cassidy. Hager puts the hat back on, then stalks Cassidy to a corner. Hager digs his knee in, the ref counts, so Hager switches to a boot. The ref still counts, Hager lets off, and both Menard and Parker talk trash at Cassidy.

Best Friends run Parker & Menard off, but Hager drags Cassidy up to put him through ropes. ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager drags Cassidy away to a cover, TWO! Hager keeps cool and sits Cassidy up for a motorcycle stretch. Cassidy endures, fights up, and goes to put his hands in his pockets! Hager stops him, Cassidy keeps trying! They fight for control, but Hager lets Cassidy go to throw him down by his hair! The ref reprimands but Hager soaks up the heat. Hager kneels on Cassidy as Dynamite returns to single picture. Cassidy keeps his shoulders up so Hager kicks him around. Hager then whips Cassidy up and out, only for Cassidy to skin the cat!

Hager CLUBS Cassidy’s hand, KICKS the other, then ROCKS Cassidy! But Cassidy trust falls with Best Friends! They catch him and help him down. Hager runs in and BLASTS Best Friends! But Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Hager hits railing! Cassidy puts Hager in, the JAS go after Cassidy, so Cassidy springboard CANNONBALLS! Cassidy hurries up the corner, leaps at Hager, but Hager catches him again! Hager pops Cassidy around to a suplex, but STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE hits! Cassidy runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirl DDT on the hat! Cover, TWO! Hager is still in this but Cassidy crawls to the corner.

Fans rally up as Cassidy takes off the armband! Cassidy gives the lazy thumbs up, runs in at Hager, but Hager catches him for an URENAGE! Cover, TWO! Cassidy survives and Hager is furious! Hager puts the hat back on and he stomps away on Cassidy. Hager runs corner to corner, HAGER BOMB, but he blocks the boots! ANKLE LOCK!! Cassidy flails around and reaches out but Hager holds on. Cassidy rolls, kicks away but Hager still holds on. So Cassidy throws the hat! Hager ROCKS Cassidy and gets the hat back. ORANGE PUNCH!! Hager is still up so Cassidy victory rolls, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall (still AEW All-Atlantic Champion)

Hager’s obsession with his hat costs him, and the champion is still Freshly Squeezed! And of course, Best Friends GROUP- NO, The Factory’s music cuts off the hug! QT Marshall says after Full Gear, there’s a lot of unfinished business. It seems Cassidy has no problem giving out title shots one after another, so… Wait, QT’s mic dies on him. QT still rants as he storms up to the ring, but then the lights turn off! Eerie music plays, and when the lights come back up… JULIA HART is on stage! And she calls forth THE HOUSE OF BLACK!! They’re IN THE RING!! They attack Best Friends!!

The Factory are in shock, but they stay back as Buddy Matthews, Brody King & Malakai Black kick out Best Friends! Fans fire up and The Factory applauds, too. But then the House of Black goes after The Factory! Malakai BOOTS QT, Buddy & Brody BLAST Karter and Johnson! Comoroto gets in but Brody CLOBBERS him! The destruction continues on the outside as the House of Black goes after anyone and everyone they can get their hands on! Referees and presumably the AEW Dark card rush out, but they all get destroyed, too! Malakai tosses one pour soul OFF the ramp! Julia smiles and fans fire up as the House of Black stands tall.

But they’re not done, either! Buddy brings a security guard over, and with Brody, they get him up for the DANTE’S INFERNO on the stage!! Malakai gets a mic and says, “Members of the House of Black… Please rise.” Fans cheer this devastating return, who will the House of Black tear down next?

 

AEW share “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry’s thoughts from after his Steel Cage Match.

“That was my best friend in the entire world, and at the same time, he’s hurt me worse than almost anybody that I’ve ever met. But at the same time, it was also cathartic to be out there, because all that pain and resentment, it came out. As much as he’s put me through, and as much as I resented him and wanted to kill him, I felt in a way, that we again shared a moment that neither of us will ever forget, and I’m glad that I got to share it with him. And I’m glad I won. I kicked your ass.”

 

AEW World Title Eliminator Finals: Ethan Page w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Ricky Starks!

The tournament was meant to end at Full Gear, but things happen, and Absolute Ricky Starks couldn’t wrap things up until last Saturday. But now, he and All Ego battle for the chance at the AEW World Championship! Who will MJF be facing when Winter is Coming?

But as the introductions are being made, Stokely has the music stop. “Give it up for the future number one contender for the AEW World Championship, All Ego, Ethaaaaaaaan… PAAAAGE!” Fans boo and Ethan asks, “Oh, you guys don’t like that? You guys think Ricky Starks is gonna win tonight? Well, listen up! When Ricky Starks is in the middle of this ring crying after I beat his ass, all you Chicago babies can join in and cry like the losers you all are!” Fans boo, but then Starks makes his entrance! Fans cheer, but with as much tape as is on Starks, maybe Ethan has a point. The bell rings, fans rally for Ricky as he circles with Ethan.

Ethan and Starks feel things out, knuckle lock, but Ethan kicks him in the bad ribs. Ethan then lounges on the top rope to mock Starks. Starks and Ethan circle again, Starks waistlocks. Ethan wrenches out and hammerlocks, then he CLUBS Starks. Starks staggers away to a corner and Ethan talks trash. Ethan does jumping jacks to mock Starks, then he and Starks circle again. Starks kicks and CLUBS and CLUBS and CLUBS Ethan! Starks ROCKS Ethan to a corner, fires off hands from all sides, then rains down more fists! Fans fire up as the ref pulls Starks away!

And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Starks whips corner to corner but Ethan reverses. Starks goes up but Ethan KICKS him out of the air! Stokely cheers and Ethan stomps away on Starks in the corner. The ref counts, Ethan lets off, and Starks staggers away. Ethan has Starks in another corner, KNEES him low, then brings him out. Ethan KNEES Starks low again, soaks up the heat, and fans continue to rally for Starks.

Ethan talks trash on Starks, runs the ropes, but Starks SPEARS Ethan! Fans fire up but both men are down as that took a lot out of Starks, too! Starks flops out of the ring, Ethan goes out after him. Ethan kicks Starks in the ribs, drags him up and RAMS him into railing! Ethan brings Starks along as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ethan RAMS Starks into steel steps! Starks falls back, clutching ribs and shoulder. Ethan soaks up the heat again while the ref checks on Starks. Starks is somehow okay to continue, so Ethan drags Starks up. Ethan DROPS Starks on the railing! Starks is stuck halfway into the front row, but Ethan drags him back. Ethan puts Starks in the ring, stomps him around, and he soaks up more heat as Starks winces from the pain. Ethan stomps Starks, drags him up, but Starks CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS again! Starks runs, but Ethan catches the crossbody to a BACKBREAKER! Ethan springboard STOMPS Starks in the ribs! And again!

Ethan digs his heel into Starks’ body but the ref counts. Ethan lets off, drags Starks back up, and reels Starks in to suplex high and hard! Starks crawls away to a corner while Ethan grins and flexes. Ethan swaggers over to Starks, brings him up, but Starks CHOPS and ROCKS Ethan! Dynamite returns to single picture as Starks throws shot after shot! Starks CHOPS again, Stokely is furious, but Starks ROCKS Ethan in the corner. Ethan ROCKS and CLUBS Starks back, then whips him to a corner. Starks reverses and Ethan hits buckles! Starks runs, Ethan ducks and kicks low. Ethan whips, Starks slips around and hits a TORNADO, but Ethan hangs Starks out to dry!

Starks flops to the apron but Ethan goes out to join him. Ethan drags Starks up, fireman’s carries, but Starks throws elbows! Starks gets in the ring, ROCKS Ethan with a forearm, and Ethan goes to the floor. Fans fire up as Starks builds speed! Starks DIVES, but Stokely saves Ethan! Starks crashes ‘n’ burns and shouts in pain! Ethan and Stokely high-five, but the ref EJECTS Stokely! Ethan and Stokely are furious but the fans love it! Ethan assures Stokely that he can handle this from here, and he drags Starks into the ring. The ref checks on Starks but he’s somehow okay. Ethan climbs, Starks gets up and ROCKS Ethan!

Starks climbs up but Ethan throws hands back. They brawl up top, Starks CLUBS Ethan then throws down fists. Ethan throws body shots back! Ethan scoops Starks but Starks throws elbows! Starks is on the ropes again as eh throws forearms. But Ethan ROCKS Starks, ROCKS him again, but Starks ROCKS Ethan back! Starks stands on the very top!? SUPERPLEX!!

Starks survives but Ethan slashes his throat! Ethan roars and drags Starks back up to gut wrench. Starks slips off to schoolboy, TWO!! Ethan BOOTS Starks, ROUNDHOUSES, and then runs, but Starks dodges! SPEAR!!

Fans fire up as Starks fires up in a corner! ANOTHER SPEAR!! Cover, Starks wins!!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW World Championship)

That was absolutely a gutsy performance! And now, in three weeks, Starks gets his shot at the champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman! Will Starks make MJF look like a transitional champion? Or will MJF be better than Starks, and you know it?

 

Wardlow speaks.

“Waking up Sunday morning, the reality that I was no longer TNT Champion settled in. I was very angry. And I went back to see what exactly happened, because last thing I knew, I was powerbombing Hobbs multiple times, doing what I always do, finishing the symphony and win. Watched the video back, and I see now that it got interrupted by a belt shot to the back of my head. Samoa Joe, you are not the most dangerous man in the room. You are not the TNT Champion, I am. And this is Wardlow’s World.” Will Wardlow hunt down #TwoBeltsJoe and take his belt back?

 

AEW shares video of the “encounter” between Jade Cargill and Bow Wow.

The UNDEFEATED TBS Champion and her Baddies were celebrating her 42nd win and her regaining physical possession of the belt. However, them ushering people out of the way at the Millennium Tour red carpet got Bow Wow’s attention. Bow Wow had his security usher them out, which got Jade all heated.

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

Renee is with Jade, Kiera Hogan, Leila Grey, and the returning Red Velvet, and asks them all about what exactly happened with Jade and Bow Wow. No comment. No more clout for that “whack ass rapper.” But Jade is happy to finally have the belt back, with no help at all… Kiera and Leila look to the side while Velvet shrugs. But more importantly, Velvet IS back! And to celebrate, it’ll be a Baddie-bration next week in Indianapolis. Wait, why not tonight? Because been here, done that, whack town, moving on. As for Jade’s legal matters, Mark Sterling is back on retainer.

Smart Mark steps in and says, “As far as the Bow Wow situation is concerned, Jade Cargill’s official statement is, ‘No comment.'” Velvet likes that. Now, time to plan the party. They need balloons, champagne, cake, all green! The Baddies head out but Jade has Kiera stay back. Sterling has a document for her to sign? Kiera is agreeing to the assessment that she did not live up to her end of the deal, and as far as anyone is concerned, Kiera is NOT a Baddie. What?! Kiera gets kicked out just as Velvet comes back to the fold! What is Kiera to do now that she’s been kicked to the curb?

 

AEW World Trios Championships Best of Seven, Match 2: Death Triangle VS The Elite!

If you’re wondering when the first of this series started, it was at Full Gear. Rey Fenix gave in to the dastardly ways of The Bastard and used the bell hammer against Kenny Omega to secure the win, but that doesn’t sit well with Tony Khan. Will The Cleaner & Young Bucks correct another wrong done to them? Or will Fenix, Penta & Pac go up 2-0 already?

Chicago is chanting for “CM PUNK!” as The Elite make their entrance. Don Callis joins commentary again to put over the God of Wrestling, Kenny Omega. Pac has a face brace given the broken nose he suffered at Full Gear. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and it’s time for round two! Omega steps right up to Fenix given the hammer shot, and he shoves Fenix! Fenix says it’s what the Elite would’ve done! Omega sighs, shakes Fenix’s hand, and then hits a V-TRIGGER! Penta and Pac rush in but they get intercepted by the Bucks! The Bucks stomp and throw them out, then they help Omega stomp Fenix.

Fans boo hard, but Matt WRECKS Penta with a dropkick! Nick DECKS Pac, and Omega drags Fenix up. The Bucks coordinate, they put one out on Penta and Pac, for DOUBLE APRON POWERBOMBS! Omega whips Fenix to SKY HIGH SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Matt whips Penta into railing, then whips him back the other way! Penta runs back at Matt to SLINGBLADE! Nick FLYING RANAS Penta! But Pac runs in to SHOTGUN Nick! Omega DECKS Pac from the apron, and fans boo as he sets up. The Terminator Drums still start, and the Bucks set up the Bastard. Omega says night night, runs, but Fenix SOMERSAULT CUTTERS!

Fenix goes up and up to TORNILLO onto everyone!! Chicago is thunderous, and even sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~!” as Fenix puts Omega back in. Fenix drags Omega up, tags Pac in, snapmare and Penta gets in. They KICK, KICK and KICK, then TRIPLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Fenix drags Omega into position, Penta runs to wheelbarrow, VICTORY SPLASH MOONSAULT COMBO! Pac covers, TWO! Pac goes to a corner, springboards, but Omega gets under! Omega waistlocks, Pac switches, Omega switches, Pac switches back, Omega elbows out hard! Pac falls, clutching his busted nose, and the ref has Omega back off.

Omega argues with the ref, but Nick PENALTY KICKS Pac! Matt BLASTS the Lucha Brothers! Matt goes up top now and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS! Direct hit on the Lucha Bros, and Nick puts Pac in for Omega. Nick does his best Macho Man while Omega looms over Pac. Omega drags Pac up, Pac ROCKS Omega with forearms! Pac fires off hands, Omega hits back, but Pac ROCKS Omega! Pac runs in but Omega BOOTS him away! Omega runs to KOTARO KRUSHER! Cover, TWO! Omega is annoyed but he tags Matt in. Matt swaggers and jogs around Pac, before dropping the fist! AEW goes picture in picture as Matt stalks Pac to a corner.

Matt stands Pac up to DECK him with a right! Matt drags Pac back up, Nick waves him over, and Matt bumps Pac off Nick’s boot. Nick tags in, stomps Pac around, then he taunts Fenix & Penta with Latino Heat. Nick drags Pac up, Omega and Matt put their feet up, and Nick bumps Pac off both boots! Nick SPITS at Fenix! The ref has to keep Fenix back, and Nick drags Pac up. Tag to Matt, Matt fires up and aims, to slingshot and… Fall on his butt. Maybe copying Hangman is harder than he thought. Nick CLUBS Pac down and stomps him! Matt says his ankle gave out! Seems he’s mocking a certain someone with that.

Matt drags Pac up, grins, and bumps Pac off Nick’s and Omega’s boots! Tag to Omega and Omega says they’re going to go another round! They get fans to count along “FOUR!” but Pac throws body shots! Omega CLUBS Pac, whips him in, but Pac reverses! Omega hits the Bucks’ boots! And then the Lucha Brothers CLOBBER the Bucks! Dynamite returns to single picture, Pac crawls to his corner, but Matt trips Penta off the apron! Omega storms up on Pac, drags him up, and Omega wrenches Pac’s arm, to BITE it! The ref counts, Omega lets off and argues with the ref again. Pac goes to ropes, Omega runs over, but Pac sidesteps to SNAP GERMAN!

Fans fire up while Pac and Omega are both down. Pac crawls, Omega sits up, hot tags to Penta and Matt! Penta CROSSBODIES the Bucks! Then mule kick for Matt, wheelbarrow roll with Nick and DDT for Matt! Tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER for Nick! Tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER for Matt! Tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER for Omega! Fans are thunderous as Penta tags Fenix. Fenix goes up and up to FLYING ARM-DRAG Matt! Nick kicks Fenix to a corner but is put on the ropes! Fenix CHOPS Matt, knuckle locks and goes up and up again, SUPER STEINER for Nick! Matt SUPERKICKS Fenix! Fenix kips up to SUPERKICK back!

Fans are electric as everyone is down around ringside! Fenix and Matt crawl for their corners, hot tags to Pac and Omega! Omega swings but misses! Pac SOBATS, KICKS, “This is Awesome!” as Pac SOBATS again. Pac runs but into a cheap shot! Matt grins, Omega V-TRIGGERS from behind! SNAP DRAGON! Tag to Nick, tag to Matt, and the Bucks BLAST the Lucha Brothers. The Bucks sit Pac up, and they pull the face brace off!! The ref reprimands but it isn’t really illegal to do that. Pac throws body shots on Nick! And on Matt! Omega CLUBS Pac, then goes to the corner to tag back in. Omega then tags Matt back in, and all three surround Pac.

Pac sits up, the Elite fire sup, TRIPLE SUPERKICK! Cover, the Lucha Bros break it! The Bucks throw Penta out, then Fenix. Nick builds speed and goes up, up and ESCALARAS to take out the Lucha Bros! Matt tags Omega in and Pac is on the ropes. Omega says BANG and runs, V-TRIGGER!! Then the Electric Chair Lift, ONE-WINGED- NO! Pac slips off, kicks and whips but Omega reverses to fireman’s carry! Fans boo, he better not! GO TO SLEEP!!! Cover, TWO!?!? The Bastard survives and Omega is furious!! Omega tags Matt, Matt drags Pac up and Nick sets up on the apron. But Fenix tightrope walks to KICK Nick!

Pac victory rolls, TWO!! Omega runs in but Fenix dumps him out! Fenix DIVES to take out Nick and Omega at the ramp! Pac dodges Matt, waistlocks, but Matt gets to ropes. The ref is checking on everyone on the outside, Matt LOW BLOWS Pac! Fans boo and Alex Abrahantes points it out, but the damage is done! Matt gets the bell hammer! But Penta slithers up behind him to shout, “CERO! MIEDO!” But DOS HAMMERS! BAM to Matt!! Pac covers, Death Triangle wins!!

Winners: Death Triangle, by pinfall (lead the series 2-0)

Fenix and Penta argue about resorting to the hammers all over again, but in the end, they’re up big on The Elite! Will Death Triangle look to finish this off before the New Year? Or will Omega & The Bucks get on the board in Indianapolis?

 

Renee Paquette is on stage.

“Chicago, what a night we have had so far! Now, I am out here with a massive announcement that pertains to the Women’s Division. Due to the extent of the injuries to the AEW Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa, and the uncertainty of when she could return to action, AEW and Thunder Rosa have reached a mutual agreement. AEW management has been forced to ask Thunder Rosa to relinquish the championship. Thunder Rosa was a fighting champion for AEW, she is willing to step aside and forfeit the title to the benefit of AEW, but more importantly, to the benefit of all of the women of AEW.

“Now that being said, please join me in welcoming your NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Jamie Hayter!” Fans cheer as the interim is no longer interim, and Hayter walks out on stage with Britt and Rebel. This is the Hayter Era and Renee congratulates her. How does she feel? Britt speaks up to say, “Renee, thank you for telling all these people what they already knew, and that is that Jamie Hayter is the undisputed AEW Women’s World Champion! And let me let you in on a little secret, Ne-Ne. We were never even considering the word ‘interim,’ it’s not even in our vocabulary. Now take this mic, step aside, and let the champ walk to the ring.”

Britt follows Hayter, and they’re ready to take on some hungry competition. Will “The Killer & The Pillar” crush the hopes of four contenders all at once? Or will someone snatch a golden ticket off Hayter on the way to the holidays?

Triple Threat Tag: Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter w/ Rebel VS TayJay VS Willow Nightingale & Sky Blue!

AEW returns as the Jericho Appreciation Society’s Brazilian Goddess and Star of the Show make their entrance. In this kind of Triple Threat, only two teams are legal at any time, so Tay steps to the champ! Tay and Hayter tie up, Hayter wrenches and wristlocks.

Backstage interview with FTR and Top Flight.

Renee is with “two of the best tag teams in all of AEW,” and Dante & Darius had something to say. But Dax Harwood speaks up first. He doesn’t throw out compliments a lot, but he must say, Darius had a string of bad luck but he’s always been impressive. And Top Flight with AR Fox almost became World Trios Champions last week. That impressed Dax, too. So what he wants from now on, for the next few decades to come, is Top Flight to take over tag team wrestling. Darius appreciates that, but there’s a reason Top Flight wanted to talk. And speaking of impressed, Top Flight’s been impressed with FTR for years.

Darius says it is a dream match, Top Flight VS FTR. So if they’re all impressed, FTR will put the ROH World Tag Team Championships on the line for Black Friday Rampage. Cash says they have always liked Top Flight, and they don’t say no to a fight. They’re on! They all shake hands, and Dante says, “Top Flight, out.” Dax says that’s clever, but that’s kinda FTR’s thing. Will the ROH World Tag titles still be FTR’s thing after the special afternoon Rampage?

 

The Acclaimed is here!

Max Caster & Anthony Bowens finally settled things with Swerve & Keith, and they’re still AEW World Tag Team Champions! Caster has a rap ready, “Acclaimed back at it with the story of the year, cuz we broke up Keith & Swerve at Full Gear. New champs, Hayter, MJF, but Acclaimed retained, we’re staying at the apex. You wanna shot, put your name on the ballot, and get your nuts slapped like Lethal & Jarrett! Yo, we cuttin’ all the dead weight. Chicago knows, it’s Acclaimed Every Wednesday!” Bowens says, “CHICAGOOOO~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Cut the music.” The music stops and fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!”

Bowens says, “Chicago, it’s good to be back! And there’s’ a lot to be thankful for. It’s Thanksgiving Eve! Starting with Max and I retaining the AEW tag team titles, further proving that EVERYONE! LOVES! The Acclaimed! And not only that. My shoulder’s feeling better. But most importantly…” Billy Gunn unwraps the fingers! So of course, “SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” But then Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh interrupt from the tron. Sonjay has them stop right there. Did he just hear their names come outta the Acclaimed’s mouths?! Lethal warns them to keep Jarrett’s name out their freakin’ mouths!

Speaking of, Double J steps into frame to say, “Listen up, Slap Max! And you two, Daddy Ass, and Junior Ass, and all you other AEW ass clowns! You wanna talk smack? Well Max, I’ll give you something to rap about. Acclaimed, you best be watching your backs.” Fans chant, “TNA SUCKS!” and Billy says, “Somebody get that old ass off my screen, would ya?” Fans cheer for that! Billy has pull around here cuz he’s Billy. And now, the moment everyone’s been waiting for… Chicago, SCISSOR TIME!! And the fingers scissor!! The Acclaimed doesn’t sweat Double J and Jay, but will the #LethalOutlaws come for the gold soon enough?

 

ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Tomohiro Ishii!

The Wizard is still “Ring of Jericho” Champion after Full Gear because, whether he wanted to or not, Sammy Guevara played his part in that Fatal 4 Way. But now, the Stone Pitbull is coming after Le Champion! Will Ishii prove he’s not that Young Lion Jericho remembers? Or will Jericho check another name off the list?

The introductions are made by Bobby Cruise, the belt is raised, and we see if even Ishii must hail #THEOCHO!

The bell rings and Jericho already flips off Chicago. And then he flips off Ishii. Ishii just steps to Jericho, Jericho tells him he’s a BAKA KOUHAI (stupid junior), but then Ishii SLAPS him! Jericho snarls and SLAPS back! Ishii SLAPS, Jericho SLAPS, it’s a SLAP fight! SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP and fans fire up as the shots keep going! Ishii ROCKS Jericho with that last one, then snapmares to KICK him! Jericho winces and rolls out of the ring. Ishii waits on Jericho, and even holds the ropes open for his senpai. Jericho doesn’t accept, he gets in on the other side. Jericho throws forearms but Ishii eggs him on!

Jericho throws forearm after forearm but Ishii doesn’t budge! Then Ishii starts throwing forearms in return! Fans fire up as the forearms go back and forth now! Forearm after forearm after forearm, but then Jericho gets the edge! Jericho runs, into a SAIDO! Ishii runs but Jericho avoids the sliding lariat! But Ishii blocks the Code Breaker! Ishii throws Jericho away, but Jericho ducks Ishii’s enziguri! Fans fire up as the two stand off. Jericho and Ishii check their cheeks, they circle again, and they tie up again. Jericho and Ishii are in a deadlock, Jericho headlocks, but Ishii powers out. They RAM shoulders, and they yell at each other!

Ishii runs, RAMS Jericho, then Jericho runs to RAM Ishii! Ishii rebounds to run Jericho over! Fans fire up and Ishii finally feels those collisions. Jericho goes to a corner, Ishii storms over, but Jericho SLAPS! SLAPS! SLAPS! Ishii just eggs Jericho on, then SLAPS back! And CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS and Ishii winces. Ishii CHOPS and Jericho sputters! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, and Jericho staggers back. Jericho snarls, CHOPS, but Ishii CHOPS back! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, repeat! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP, then they both wobble as they clutch their stinging chests while AEW goes picture in picture.

Jericho CHOPS again, but Ishii CHOPS again! Jericho roars, CHOPS, CHOPS, and CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS in return! Jericho drops to his knees and Ishii finally feels the pain. Ishii taunts Jericho-senpai, and Jericho comes back to CHOP! Ishii CHOPS, the CHOP fight is back on! Jericho’s chest is bleeding from one spot! But Jericho still CHOPS Ishii! Ishii CHOPS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Ishii just keeps hitting that bloody spot! But Jericho CHOPS back! Ishii CHOPS again! Ishii eggs Jericho on, then CHOPS again! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, they just keep going!

Ishii CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Jericho wobbles to ropes but Ishii CHOPS him more and more! The ref warns about getting up high, but then Jericho blocks to COHP and CHOP and CHOP in return! Jericho’s arm is tiring out! But he still CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS, Jericho CHOPS, repeat! The CHOPS go harder and harder, and Chicago gives this a standing ovation! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii ROARS, Jericho CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS, Jericho CHOPS, and they CHOP as Dynamite returns to single picture! Jericho’s chest is so red, and not even from the blood! Fans hope they “CHOP FOREVER!” At this rate, they just might!

The CHOPS just keep going, and Jericho finally gets the edge! But Ishii just roars again! To CHOP Jericho off his feet!! Jericho sits up a bloody mess, Ishii rests against ropes, and fans are loving this. Jericho and Ishii get back up, to CHOP even more!! Ishii CHOPS Jericho to the corner, he keeps giving CHOPS, then he whips corner to corner. Jericho reverses, but Ishii comes back to run him over! Jericho goes to a corner, Ishii runs in and Jericho BOOTS him! Jericho runs to LARIAT Ishii into the corner! Jericho fires off point blank clotheslines over and over! Ishii sits but Jericho keeps after him with stomps!

The ref backs Jericho off, and he drags Ishii back up. Jericho CHOPS Ishii, then climbs up to rain down fists! Jericho goes all the way to nine but Ishii brings him out to POWERBOMB! Stack cover, TWO!! Ishii and Jericho are both down and fans rally up. Ishii rises first, and he waits on Jericho. Ishii runs, LARIATS, but Jericho stays up! Jericho eggs Ishii on, Ishii runs but Jericho BOOTS him! Ishii roars at Jericho, Jericho roars back! They both run, and Jericho CLOBBERS Ishii with the cross chop! Ishii is on the apron, Jericho triangle jumps, into an ELBOW from Ishii! Ishii drags Jericho up, to suplex!

Jericho fights the suplex, is on the apron, and he kicks low to APRON DDT!! Both men are down and fans lose their minds! The ring count starts while both men are down. Ishii stirs at 4 of 10, but Jericho slowly stands at 6. Jericho ROCKS Ishii, Ishii ROCKS him back, and they go forearm for forearm! They hear the count reach 9 and they both slide in! Jericho ROCKS Ishii, Ishii ROCKS Jericho, and the forearms keep going! Ishii falls, Jericho kicks him around! Jericho runs, into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Jericho gets up, he GERMAN SUPLEXES Ishii! But Ishii is up, only to run into another GERMAN SUPLEX!

Ishii is up! But hen he falls back down! Jericho LIONSAULTS! Cover, ONE?!?! Fans are thunderous and Jericho is shocked! Jericho ROCKS Ishii, and hits a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! Ishii survives and no one can believe it! “This is Awesome!” as Jericho waits on Ishii. Ishii slowly rises, Jericho runs in, but Ishii swats the Judas Effect to HEADBUTT Jericho down! Fans are thunderous as Ishii roars again! Ishii sits Jericho up, runs and SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but Ishii just roars again! Ishii drags Jericho up, but Jericho suplexes! Ishii fights that but Jericho trips him!

Jericho has the legs, he turns but Ishii bridges to throw Jericho! Ishii STEALS THE CODE BREAKER! Fans are thunderous and Ishii runs, to LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!!! Jericho is still in this! Ishii drags Jericho up, suplexes, but Jericho fights! Jericho wrenches, Ishii fires forearms and boxing elbows! ENZI- NO, Jericho blocks the kick! WALLS OF JERICHO!!! Ishii endures as Jericho sits deep! Fans are thunderous as Ishii crawls and claws around, but Jericho drags him away from ropes! Ishii still fights, tucks and rolls but Jericho throws down forearms! Jericho turns Ishii around again, LION TAMER!!! Ishii endures, but he FLIPS JERICHO OFF! Then he taps! Jericho wins!!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by submission (still ROH World Champion)

The Ocho did it without cheating! Jericho may not realize it, but he might be just as much a pro-wrestler as anyone! But he still wants after Ian Riccaboni!? Instead, CLAUDIO comes out to DECK Jericho! The Swiss Superman sends a message to Le Champion, we will see these two fight at Final Battle?


My Thoughts:

What a great post-PPV episode for AEW. When MJF wasn’t advertised for showing up tonight, I just knew he was doubling down on being a Heel by acting high and mighty now that he’s world champion. But we got a great segment from Regal, Bryan and Moxley. Moxley is understandably PISSED, and Bryan defending Regal was also great stuff. This isn’t necessarily Blackpool Combat Club breaking up so much as Regal defecting to MJF’s side, but this is just one more nail in the coffin. And they even kept “MJF never really fired The Firm” alive, since Starks won the Eliminator Tournament in a great match with Ethan Page. MJF VS Starks is going to be great stuff, and this whole MJF era is going to be a lot of fun.

I actually liked that Keith and Swerve didn’t argue or fight on camera, because this is a very creative take on a tag team breaking up. I feel like them reuniting as a team isn’t likely, but even if they do, it is only inevitable that they finally come to blows and have their own singles feud. Great stuff from Cassidy VS Hager, especially with all the antics surrounding the purple bucket hat. Cassidy retains, of course, but I like that the House of Black used this opportunity to return and just beat the crap out of everyone. I am thinking Malakai gets in on the All-Atlantic title, and we could see Buddy & Brody go for the tag titles.

Wardlow of course wants the TNT title, and I’m thinking they set up a match for Winter is Coming. Joe can go to Final Battle as a double champion, probably stay double champion, and then we’ll see if Wardlow can take the TNT title off Joe. Good promo from The Baddies but a shame that Kiera was the most loyal Baddie yet she’s the one getting kicked out. Maybe Kiera teams up with Diamante and they go after Jade together. It’s also great that the “interim” is gone, Hayter is THE champion (and apparently Toni Storm will be retroactively). Now all we need is her to break away from Britt. We did get a great Triple Threat Tag with Hayter and Britt winning, and I wonder if Britt ends up the #1 contender, compelling her and Hayter to have a match. After all, wins and losses matter.

Though, that doesn’t explain Lethal & Jarrett calling out The Acclaimed like they’re up next or something. Jarrett & Lethal lost to Sting & Darby, it should be Sting & Darby up next, except that not even AEW does Faces VS Faces or Heels VS Heels. Top Flight VS FTR is going to be awesome, but I think FTR wins, and then they can set up something for Final Battle. Still expecting it to be Austin & Colten Gunn, they have been getting at FTR so much that it just makes sense.

That Trios Championship Best of Seven match was awesome stuff, but also what a wild moment because fans were loud for both sides of the CM Punk argument. Most of Chicago was pro-Punk but there was still a vocal minority saying “F CM Punk.” The Elite added on by trolling Punk with mocking how Punk hurt himself doing the Buckshot and what not. To my surprise, The Elite didn’t win this one, either! And it was because Penta used a hammer! It seems all of Death Triangle is going to have to come to terms with Heel tactics if the team is to stick together. As for The Elite, they may have to keep an eye on those hammers. I’m thinking The Elite make a comeback no later than Winter is Coming. And I would think this goes all the way to the seventh match, that’s how epic these two teams are.

And that was an awesome main event! Jericho, for all his character’s talk of sports entertainment being superior, reminded everyone that he is an icon for a reason. He and Ishii really brought the Strong Style, but I had a feeling Jericho was going to retain. And Claudio clobbering Jericho as he was calling out Riccaboni was good stuff. Clearly, Claudio VS Jericho is happening at Final Battle, and that could be an epic match on the level of this main event. I honestly can’t be sure who else AEW can bring in for Jericho to face, but I can’t see Jericho losing the title just yet. Maybe the Jericho Appreciation Society will bring out a list of former ROH champions to face.

My Score: 9/10
