PLAY BY PLAY

Kay Lee Ray VS Isla Dawn!

The NXT UK Women’s Champion has all eyes on her, and her title belt. While Piper the Viper and Toni Storm want to strike, the White Witch of Scotland wants to stake a claim! Will Isla cast a spell on KLR? Or will she be melting, melting~ in the cold of winter?

The bell rings and fans in Hull are on Isla’s side. KLR sneers as she and Isla tie up. KLR headlocks, but Isla reverses to a wristlock. Isla keeps KLR from the ropes but gets a SLAP for it! KLR headlocks again, but Isla powers out. KLR stops herself to boot her back! KLR whips but Isla crossbodies on the return! Cover, TWO! Isla runs but KLR ducks down, only to miss her dropkick! La Magistrol, TWO! Isla slips around but no crucifix, KLR chicken wings and lifts. But Isla slips out of the Gory Bomb for a SUNSET Bomb! Cover, TWO! KLR mule kicks and whips, but Isla reverses and dropkicks! Fans rally as Isla has KLR in the corner. Isla runs in, but misses and knees buckles! KLR stomps Isla’s legs at the ropes but the ref backs her off.

KLR drags Isla in to stomp more while fans rally up. KLR drags Isla up, suplexes but Isla blocks. Isla clubs KLR and spins around, but KLR bucks her off. Isla’s leg gives out, KLR stomps her more. Fans boo as KLR drags Isla up to CHOP and Gourd Buster! Cover, TWO! KLR grows annoyed with Isla as she drags her up again. Fans rally as Isla fights back. KLR clubs Isla down and Isla crawls away. KLR stalks her to ropes and throws big hands. KLR puts Isla in the corner and has the leg wrapped around ropes! The ref counts and KLR lets up at 4, but then she runs at Isla! Isla dodges and the kick goes into buckles! Isla SAIDO SUPLEX! KLR scrambles away as Isla runs in, big knee hits this time! Isla walks it off and hurries up top. Isla leaps, METEORA! Cover, TWO!! KLR lives and Isla can’t believe it!

Fans rally up again, and Isla drags KLR up into a waistlock. Isla wants a half nelson but KLR resists, then rakes the eyes! Mule kick to the bad leg, mule kick to the face! KLR underhooks and lifts, GORY BOMB! Cover, KLR wins!

Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall

Fans don’t like it, but they have to accept it: KLR is hard to beat. But will Toni Storm and Piper Niven accept that fact as we draw closer to TakeOver: Blackpool II?

KLR takes up a mic to say, “Once again, your NXT UK Women’s Champion proved just how dominate she truly is!” Fans boo as KLR says that she has complete control both in the ring, and out. She proved that she’s still in Toni’s head. And if that wasn’t enough, KLR will has her “old pal” Piper rattled. But wait, here is Piper in person! And Toni blows past her to get at KLR! A brawl is on, but as Toni underhooks, Piper gets in, and KLR shoves Toni into Piper! KLR gets away before Toni can recover, but now Toni and Piper have problems. Fans are divided as they argue, and KLR just laughs.

But then, Sid Scala appears! The Assistant GM says that if this is going to continue week after week, he and Johnny Saint have only one solution: NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool 2, an NXT UK Women’s Championship TRIPLE THREAT!! KLR doesn’t like that one bit, but neither do Toni or Piper. However, everything will be settled in one match! Who beats the odds and comes away with the title?

 

Jordan Devlin has another presentation.

“Hello, everyone, and welcome back to another critically acclaimed ‘Jordan Devlin Presents: The Best of NXT UK.'” He’s gotten some grief from boys in the back that they weren’t in the highlights, so Devlin will shine a spotlight on the rest of this very talented roster. So without further ado, The Best of the Rest.

There’s Moustache Mountain VS Grizzled Young Veterans from TakeOver: Blackpool, the original NXT UK Tag Team Championship match. Tyler Bate, shortest man on the roster with the shortest United Kingdom Championship reign. Devlin also would like to point out that Moustache Mountain didn’t win that match, Bate and his “elderly father” just couldn’t get it done.

The next clip is Imperium brutalizing Bate at the Download Festival over the summer, before TakeOver: Cardiff. Great stuff as Walter throws Bate into the ring post. One last clip is from Cardiff’s “five star classic” of Bate VS Walter, where Bate lost while Devlin had to sit on the sidelines. But Devlin does enjoy Bate getting destroyed in such a big moment. Bate could’ve taken the title back, and NXT UK with it, but what happened? He was crushed by the pressure, and by Walter’s weight. “No chance, mate.”

But that’s what happens when you put your faith in Tyler Bate. Bate may be the star, but he is not the Ace. Thank you for watching. If Bate was watching, what will his response to Devlin be?

 

NXT UK Media caught up with Joe Coffey at the UK Performance Center.

Joe was asked about what it would mean to become the WWE UK Champion. What would it mean to him and the Gallus Firm to have that title? It’s the “biggest score” the brand has to offer. And the biggest man is holding it. Joe again reminds “Jolly Wally” that at last year’s Blackpool, those “clumsy size 14 boot” left its mark. The Gallus boys didn’t take too kindly to that. So this time around, as they return to Blackpool, Joe promises to leave his mark on Walter, and Imperium, and take that WWE UK Championship! Gallus boys on top! And that’s because this is their kingdom. With that, Joe moves on to take care of business.

 

Trent Seven VS Michael May!

The Man from Moustache Mountain is back again, and taking on a new Irish star to join NXT UK! Seven surely knows the message Eddie Dennis sent, will he send one back?

Speaking of Dennis, he comes out and attacks Michael May outta nowhere! He drags May out and throws him around into barriers and the steel steps! Then he feeds May into the ring and says it is a “gift” to Seven. Seven has no idea what Dennis is thinking, but he checks on May. Dennis takes his leave, will he only become more deranged as time goes on?

No Contest

 

Backstage interview with Noam Dar.

As we grow closer to TakeOver: Blackpool 2, Radzi brings up what Dar said before TakeOver: Cardiff. Dar claimed- Claimed? He doesn’t make claims. Dar states facts. So Radzi can go with Dar to see the contract for himself. C’mon, just follow Mr. Supernova 11. Dar complains he has to do this. Dar knocks on the door, and Saint and Scala answer. Dar knows they know his TakeOver: Blackpool 2 match hasn’t been announced because they were “saving the best for last.” But Dar says until then, he’ll be on holiday for a few weeks. Scala says that the terms of his contract are quite what he thought they were. But also don’t pack your bags just yet. Because next week, Dar will be taking on someone with a lot of TakeOver experience: Tyler Bate! Dar blames Radzi for this, then storms off. Will Bate be sending Dar packing for the holidays?

 

Jack Starz VS Ridge Holland!

The UK underdog did well against A-Kid, even in losing. But will he even survive his run in with #NorthernGrit?

The bell rings and fans are cheering for their own as Ridge TOSSES Starz! Starz flounders up to get run over! Ridge drags Starz up to whip hard into a corner, then reel him in for an overhead suplex! Ridge stomps away on Starz, up until the ref counts 4. Ridge drags Starz up but Starz fires off hands, only to get a big knee! Ridge cravats and kenes away on Starz, then rocks him with a big European Uppercut. Ridge drags Starz up and around, traps the arms, and throws Starz overhead again! Starz flounders as fans cheer the strength.

Ridge storms over and rams his knees and elbows into Starz over and over. Ridge grinds his forearms into Starz’s face but lets up at 4. Ridge whips Starz corner to corner, but misses as he runs in! Starz has a headlock, but Ridge powers him off. Starz lands on his feet and clubs Ridge on the back, then throws body shots! Starz fires off! Dropkick rocks Ridge, and Starz throws an uppercut! Ridge shoves, Starz uppercuts again, but then runs into a POUNCE! Ridge drags Starz up, and ROCKS him with a right hand. But Ridge isn’t done, he drags Starz back up, scoops and BRAIN BUSTER! The Northern Grit itself! Cover, Ridge wins!

Winner: Ridge Holland, by pinfall

Hull hails Holland the hulking conqueror! Ridge simply gives a tip of the cap as he heads out. Is Ridge Holland headed for the top of NXT UK?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Kenny Williams.

The Lucky Yin doesn’t get what’s going on, but they say it is a surprise. Amir Jordan is back! He’s back to 100%! And even better news, they’re back in tag team action! And you know what that means? Time to dance! Six months and Amir is still the same. Jordan and Williams are reunited, but will the big breakthrough be that the Lucky Yin gives in to the Bhangra Boogie?

 

NXT UK Tag Team Championships: Gallus VS Imperium!

In order for brother Joe to get his shot at Walter, Mark Coffey and Wolfgang must defend these titles against Imperium’s Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner. Will Imperium add to their treasures? Or will Gallus boys stay on top?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and tensions rise already. The ref can’t get control so he just rings the bell! The brawl is on between Wolfgang and Aichner! Mark and Barthel back off so that Wolfgang can hammer away. Aichner hits back, but Wolfgang powers him to the Gallus corner. Tag to Mark and Mark throws body shots and forearms. Mark whips Aichner but Aichner slides under, only to swing into a waistlock. Aichner elbows free and then gets a headlock takeover. Fans rally as Mark endures the grind. Mark fights his way up, powers out but Barthel tags in. Aichner reverses the whip and ducks down, Mark runs into Barthel’s arm-drag! Barthel has the armlock and pulls back hard.

Fans rally and Mark endures more. Mark pushes Barthel’s foot off his face and gets up, but Barthel wrenches to a rough wristlock. Barthel wrings Mark out and then gets a grounded keylock. Mark endures and fans rally back up. Barthel brings Mark to the Imperium corner, tag to Aichner. Imperium mugs Mark and Aichner mounts with an armlock of his own. Mark endures and fights back up to waistlock. Aichner bucks Mark off but turns around into Mark’s shoulder block! Tag to Wolfgang, Gallus wrenches and runs Aichner over. Wolfgang wrenches and yanks on Aichner’s arm, then lifts Aichner up to drop him down. Wolfgang grinds a knee into the arm but Aichner fights up. Aichner reaches but Wolfgang whips him away. Aichner reverses but Wolfgang leaps and shoulders Aichner down! Tag to Mark, and Gallus double wrenches, double CHOPS and double MONKEY FLIPS Aichner away!

Aichner bails out, Barthel runs in, but he gets a double leg hook catapult! Wolfgang drags Barthel into a normal catapult, and Mark catches Barthel for the fireman’s carry! But Barthel rakes eyes to get free, then he throws Mark into the ropes. Imperium meets at the corner with dropkicks! Fans boo as Barthel wipes his shoes off. Aichner tags in and drags Mark over to bump off buckles. Fans rally but Aichner CHOPS, stomps, uppercuts, repeat! Aichner stomps a mudhole then argues with the ref as he counts. Mark hits back but Aichner clubs Mark down. Aichner stomps Mark more then tags Barthel. Imperium mugs Mark then Barthel taunts him. Barthel stomps Mark in the corner but lets up at 4. The ref reprimands him but Barthel is right on Mark with a rain of right hands and even headbutts! Barthel fires off hands from all sides, and the ref has to push him away!

Oh no, the X comes up? Wolfgang doesn’t want it to end like this, but medics come out to check on Mark. Wolfgang hurries over and Imperium takes a step back. But Mark insists he’s fine, and even eggs Barthel on. Barthel walks over, to get a SLAP! And haymakers! And forearms! But Barthel knees low and clubs away! He even headbutts Mark down! The ref reprimands Barthel but Barthel just stomps away on Mark. The ref counts but Barthel tags out to Aichner. Aichner gets his boots in but lets up at 4. Aichner drags Mark up to LARIAT him right down! Aichner toys with Mark while fans rally up, but Aichner LARIATS Mark again! Aichner poses to soak up the heat. Aichner drags Mark up and knees low, then whips him in to the Imperium corner. But Mark uses that to DECK Barthel! And then he dumps Aichner out! Fans fire up as Mark crawls towards his corner!

But Aichner gets around the way and intercepts, only to get tossed! Hot tag to Wolfgang! Fans fire up for Wolfie as he rallies on Barthel, big whip and big crossbody in the corner! Forearm DECKS Aichner off the apron! Wolfgang goes up, ax handles for Barthel! Barthel flounders up to his feet, Wolfgang military presses as Aichner returns, and he throws Barthel onto Aichner! Hooked-leg suplex! Cover, TWO!! Aichner lives but Wolfgang won’t let up. Wolfgang drags Aichner up and Mark tags in. Gallus gambles as Wolfgang catapults Aichner for Mark’s SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO!! Aichner survives but Mark drags him over. Fans rally up as Wolfgang tags back in. Mark scoops but Aichner slips out to kick Mark low. Aichner boots Wolfgang out but Mark runs in, only to be sent back the other way. Barthel tags in, too, but Mark dodges Aichner to rock Barthel!

Mark elbows Aichner away, runs corner to corner, but misses! Barthel runs in but is put on the apron. Barthel can’t hold on, he falls to the floor! Aichner rams Mark but Wolfang slingshots in! Aichner still gets him for a SPINE BUSTER! Barthel returns to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO!! Wolfgang survives now and fans cheer! But now both Barthel and Wolfgang are down. Barthel gets up, drags Wolfgang up by his hair, and fans rally up as Aichner tags back in. Imperium coordinates, but Mark anchors Barthel. Aichner BOOTS Mark down hard and Mark even gets caught up in the apron skirt. Imperium goes after Wolfgang again, but Wolfgang throws hands! Wolfgang punches Barthel, then Aichner, back to Barthel and so on, but a shove leads to a Complete Shot! Aichner dead lift GERMAN SUPLEXES!

But Mark returns to throw Aichner out! Barthel and Mark brawl, back and forth, faster and faster! Hull is on Gallus’s side but Barthel ROCKS Mark! BIG EuroUpper, and a stiff enziguri! Half Hatch suplex! Barthel hops up, leaps, into a HUGE RIGHT! Aichner has Mark, rolling senton, MOONSAULT! But Wolfgang SPEARS Aichner! All four men are down and fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” But oh no, here comes Zack Gibson and James Drake! But the Grizzled Young Veterans don’t attack either team, they steal the title belts! Fans boo, but Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster won’t let GYV get away with this! A new brawl breaks out on the ramp! And it ends up in the ring! Gibson throws Aichner at Andrews!!

Winners: Imperium, by disqualification; Gallus retains the NXT UK Tag Team Championships

The brawl involves all four teams now! This looks a lot like when Gallus and Imperium barged in on GYV VS South Wales Subculture! Gallus gets after them in return, as does Imperium! Andrews FLIES out onto GYV! Wolfgang FLIES out onto Imperium! As the brawl continues, here comes Johnny Saint! “Stop this madness!” The teams all calm down and sort out. Sid Scala says the NXT UK Tag Team Championships shall not be disrespected! Therefore, Saint says these titles will be suspended above the ring in the Empress Ballroom! That’s right, TakeOver: Blackpool 2 makes NXT UK history with a FATAL 4 WAY LADDER MATCH!! Gallus, Imperium, GYV and SWSC will have to literally climb to new heights! So then, who will literally be standing above the rest as champions?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A really great episode with obviously some amazing TakeOver: Blackpool 2 updates. KLR obviously wins to stay strong and talk some trash on Piper and Toni, and obviously we’re getting an awesome Triple Threat out of it! This will surely make up for Toni VS KLR falling short of everyone’s expectations, and might even exceed some this time. With it being a Triple Threat, it could go anyone’s way, but the coming weeks will surely try to confuse us with booking math. Trent Seven VS Eddie Dennis surely has to be coming, as at least part of the go-home show. Ridge Holland is a beast, get him going with a real story quick so we can start talking about him going for the yet-to-be midcard title. I liked the second Devlin presentation, and Devlin VS Bate has to be coming. I feel like Devlin might even get involved with Bate VS Dar next week to further egg the Big Strong Boy on.

Joe Coffey delivers on his promo outside of the UK PC, but he really just reiterates points from his “negotiations” with Walter last time. Gallus VS Imperium was really good, but I wonder if it was getting a bit too sloppy. The ref threw up the X, but that might’ve been a work just to help build up Mark’s toughness. However, Barthel’s fall off the apron had to be a legit botch. The ropes might’ve been slippery, or he himself was dazed from what was going on with him and Mark. GYV and SWSC showing up was obviously a turnaround from the previous interference and a great way to set up the Fatal 4 Way I always felt was coming. Didn’t see a ladder getting involved, but thinking about it, that’s the best way to do this! You know Andrews and/or The Modfather are going to have a spot leaping off the ladder, like a super Fall to Pieces or something. And as with the Triple Threat women’s title match, a Fatal 4 Ladder for the tag titles makes it hard to predict, and for the better.

My Score: 8.5/10

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Butcher falls out, Kassidy sends Blades out then takes aim. Bowens sneaks a tag as Kassidy springboards to PLANCHA! Down go the mercs! Caster climbs up now, to SUPER CROSSBODY everyone!! Fans are thunderous as Caster puts Blade in! Bowens fires up, THE ARRIVAL! The MIC DROP!! Cover, The Acclaimed win!!

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Firm.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

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

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

 

Lee Moriarty w/ The Firm VS Fuego Del Sol!

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

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

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

Winner: Lee Moriarty, by submission

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

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page & The Dark Order.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Jamie Hayter, by pinfall

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

 

Wardlow and Samoa Joe speak.

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

 

Ryan Nemeth is in the ring.

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

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

 

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

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

 

AEW looks at Jon Moxley VS Hangman Page.

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

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

 

Mark Henry talks with tonight’s main eventers.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Battle of the Belts 4!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
