PLAY BY PLAY

NXT UK General Manager and Assistant GM welcome us to the show.

Johnny Saint and Sid Scala say that “following recent events,” two more matches are made for TakeOver: Blackpool II! After Eddie Dennis decked Trent Seven, and after all the egging on of Tyler Bate by Jordan Devlin, those pairs will each go 1v1! Will Moustache Mountain win even when they’re apart?

 

Dave Mastiff VS Kona Reeves!

The Bomber of Black Country is feeling fine in the New Year, but he has a Worlds Collide teaser with The Finest! Will Kona be feeling anything but fine after going Into the Void?

Before the match, Kona has a mic and says, “Everyone, shut up! Look, look, look! I do not have the patience to deal with any of you tonight!” Fans troll Kona with “Who are ya?! Who are ya?!” as he blames their “disgusting, disrespectful” behavior for throwing him off against Trent Seven. Kona was jet-lagged, didn’t eat well, and didn’t sleep well. Therefore, he wasn’t ready! But no one takes this serious. Kona wants the UK fans to sit down so he can focus on the “monstrosity,” Dave Mastiff. Mastiff looks like he could be a power-lifting strong men. And he used to be undefeated. But does Mastiff really think he deserves to be in the ring with a “top tier superstar” like Kona? Kona wants “Dave” to hear him out. This is his lucky night. Tonight, Mastiff gets to go home to his “pathetic family” and tell them that he had the “honor” of losing to The Finest!

The ref keeps Mastiff back while Kona puts the mic down and takes off his shirt. The bell rings, and Mastiff dares Kona to bring on the fight. Kona jabs a finger into Mastiff’s chest so Mastiff DECKS him! Kona gets up but Mastiff keeps on him with big body shots and haymakers! Mastiff whips Kona to shoulder block him out of the ring! Fans fire up with Mastiff as he goes out to keep on Kona. Kona hits low and bumps Mastiff off the apron. Kona climbs the steel steps and leaps, into Mastiff’s arms! Mastiff scoops but Kona slips out to shove Mastiff into steel steps! And again! Kona gets back in the ring at 7 then drags Mastiff up onto the apron. Mastiff punches Kona off him but Kona knee lifts him down! Kona glares as he goes out to club away on Mastiff. Kona puts the apron skirt over Mastiff’s face to club away on him harder!

The ref reprimands Kona but Kona lets up to climb onto the apron. Kona taunts Mastiff as he stalks him in the ring. Kona throws haymakers and back hands but Mastiff fires up. Mastiff hits back with body shots, but Kona kicks and DDT’s! Cover, TWO! Kona grows frustrated and he punches away on Mastiff’s head. Kona runs as fans rally up and he BOOTS Mastiff down! Cover, TWO! Kona eggs Mastiff on and clubs his back, but Mastiff gets up in anger! Mastiff back drops Kona! Mastuff punches, wrenches, waistlocks and German Suplexes! Kona is in the corner, Mastiff leaps INTO THE VOID! Cover, Mastiff wins!

Winner: Dave Mastiff, by pinfall

The Bomber sits Kona up to toy with him a little more, but Mastiff has his payback for all the trash talk. Will Mastiff be the one having the finest 2020?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Lightning from Down Under returns and Hull is happy to see her. Toni takes up the mic to say, “After I loss the NXT UK Women’s Championship, I had to go away for awhile, because I just… I just didn’t know myself anymore.” Fans chant “Welcome Back!” Toni continues to say Kay Lee Ray really got in her head and it sent her off into a dark place, maybe made her go a little crazy. But Toni owes someone an apology for that. Toni wants to talk to Piper Niven. Piper does appear! She also has a mic as she joins Toni in the ring. Toni says she owes Piper an apology. She was stupid enough to let KLR drive a wedge between them. Toni is sorry for that.

But before moving past this, Toni needs one favor. Toni’s personal issues with KLR are not over, so she needs Piper to step away from the NXT UK Women’s Championship Triple Threat in Blackpool. But as soon as Toni wins that title back, Piper is her first challenger, that is a promise. So just step aside. Fans say “No! No!” Piper says she loves Toni, she’s a dear friend and they’ve been through so much together. So Toni should know how hard Piper has had to work to be here. She can’t let this opportunity get away. Toni had her chance, Piper has to try now. The answer is no. Toni gets mad and turns Piper around, Piper HEADBUTTS her down! Piper regrets doing that to her friend, but Toni comes back with fire! They brawl with forearms and haymakers!

Referees rush out but fans want to “Let Them Fight! Let Them Fight!” KLR comes out, laughing all the way as she holds up the title. Toni still goes after Piper and vice-versa, and KLR is loving it. Will she continue to use her former friends against each other even in Blackpool?

 

El Ligero VS Kassius Ohno!

The Luchador of Leeds used to have a lot of respect for the Knockout Artist, until he realized it wasn’t mutual. The “Wrestling Genius” beat Ligero with a little cheat, but will Ligero get him back for that in spades?

The bell rings and Ligero circles with Ohno. Ohno stays back, shouting that “I just want to wrestle!” After all, he’s no longer the Knockout Artist. Ligero backs off and Ohno comes out to circle with him again. They tie up, Ohno wristlocks and wrenches but Ligero works on his escape. Ligero rolls, handsprings and wrenches back to wring Ohno out! Ohno gets up and Ligero eggs him on. They circle again and Ohno gets the head. He has the mask by the horns! Ligero breaks free to forearm! Ohno gets very upset, he’s trying to wrestle and Ligero wants to fight! Ohno backs away to a corner for his own safety, and Ligero stays back. Ohno gets up and Ligero fires off kicks and forearms! Just because Ohno is limiting himself doesn’t mean Ligeor has to!

Ohno headlocks but Ligero slips out to back kick. Ligero whips but Ohno reverses. Ligero redirects and slips under to dropkick a leg out! Ligero keeps moving, sunset flip but Ohno braeks free. Ohno goes to senton but Ligero dodges! Ligero runs in at the corner but is put on the apron. Ligero slingshots back in, dodges Ohno and headscissors him out. Ohno gets scared of the haymaker and bails out! Fans rally behind Ligero and taunt Ohno as the ring count begins. Ohno takes his time before getting up on the apron. Ligero rushes at Ohno but Ohno backs away. Ligero goes out to pursue and they end up back in the ring. Ohno catches Ligero by the horn of the mask and hits a jawbreaker! Ligero is in the corner but Ohno drags him up with a chinbar. Ohno wrenches and wrings Ligero out into ropes! Ohno taunts Ligero now as he looms over him.

Fans rally for Ligero as Ohno clamps on a neck wrench. Ligero endures and fights his way up, but Ohno shifts to a cravat and lift! Ohno holds Ligero off the ground bu Ligero pulls on Ohno’s hair to get leverage. Ohno threatens, “Don’t make me hit you!” and then shows a punch! But this is to fake Ligero out for the leg capture. So Ligero BOOTS Ohno away! Ohno runs in at the corner but Ligero throws him out hard! Ligero FLIES and takes down Ohno! Fans rally behind Ligero as he climbs up top. Ohno stands, Ligero missile dropkicks him down! Both men are slow to stand but Ligero has a cravat of his own. Ohno powers out and Ligero ends up on the apron. Ligero enziguris back, steps in, but gets caught! Ohno pulls on the mask! Ligero drops down and victory rolls, TWO!

Ohno grabs a leg but Ligero sits on him, TWO! Ohno gets up but Ligero spins him around, STUNNER! Ligero hops on, DESTROYER! Cover, TWO!! Fans sing for Ligero as he and Ohno slowly rise again. Ligero runs, springboards, but Ohno shoves him to get caught in the ropes. Ohno uses the ropes to snap Ligero down! Ohno drags Ligero around, traps an arm and cravats, KASSIUS KLUTCH! Ligero is caught in the modified crossface but he gets his arm free. Ohno still pulls on the cravat, Ligero taps!

Winner: Kassius Ohno, by submission

The Wrestling Genius has his win without throwing a single strike! Ohno gets a mic to tell the fans, “Silence!” Ohno figured out why he lost to Tyler Bate. Ohno promises that will never happen again. He had lost sight of why he came to NXT UK. He is here to be “the living embodiment of British Professional Wrestling.” So it makes Ohno physically ill that “not a soul in that dressing room knows a damn thing about British Professional Wrestling.” The Wrestling Genius doesn’t need to knock someone out when he can beat them with wrestling! “Because I am Kassius Ohno, the greatest British wrestler alive!” Will that statement stay true even in the New Year?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with A-Kid.

The Spanish Ace says in Spanish that he is excited to see Tyler Bate VS Jordan Devlin for TakeOver: Blackpool II. But then Joseph Conners takes over this interview by taking the camera. “TakeOver, I am worthy. Joseph Conners is worthy. I am TakeOver worthy!” A-Kid tells Conners to put the camera down. Oh sorry for ruining the promo. A-Kid’s on a great roll already, huh? “But rest assured, I have no problem ruining things for you.” A-Kid makes sure the camera man is okay. They’ll have to try this again. But will A-Kid find himself the target of the Righteous Killer in the New Year?

 

NXT UK Media catches Kassius Ohno as he returns backstage.

“Oh, see that? Best British Wrestler alive! I said it, I meant it. FIND someone better than me!” Dave Mastiff comes along and disagrees. “I’m not having that. Best British Wrestler alive?” Well when Ohno is ready to fight a real British Heavyweight, you know where to find Mastiff. Will the Wrestling Genius have an answer for the Bomber before Blackpool?

 

Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith VS The Outliers!

The Predator Killer combines with his friend, the Manchester Prestige, and they plan to “WOOP!” the competition. But will this new duo be able to beat the big, bad and bulky Riddick Moss and Dorian Mak?

The teams sort out and Carter starts against Moss. The two circle and fans are on Carter’s side. They tie up, Moss throws Carter down then builds up a lot of speed to run Carter right over! Moss mocks Carter but Carter kicks him back! Moss wobbles, Carter slides and hops over to mule kick! Fans fire up with Carter but Moss blocks the whip. Moss whips Carter but Carter avoids Mak, only for Moss to elbow Carter down! Tag to Mak and Mak actually throws Carter to the corner! “I want the fresh one.” Smith tags in and Moss taunts the “fresh meat.” Smith and Mak tie up and Mak carries Smith to the open corner! Mak rams his shoulder in over and over then backs off at 4. Mak perhaps shouts out the Croatian Colossus as he shouts, “Time to fly!” as he TOSSES Smith across the ring!

Mak flexes and roars while also grinning. Mak looms over Smith and drags him up. Fans rally for Smith and he slips away to tag in Carter! Smith BOOTS Mak then Carter dropkicks! Mak wobbles into a DOUBLE DROPKICK! Moss runs in, into a double hip toss! Mak returns but gets double forearms! Moss backs off and the Outliers are stuck outside the ring! Fans fire up as Moss and Mak talk to each other. “WOOP!” echoes through the arena as Mak and Moss fire each other up. Mak gets back in but Carter throws body shots. Carter bobs ‘n’ weaves but Mak shoves him to LARIAT! Mak whips Carter corner to corner and rams a BIG back elbow in! Then another! And another! Mak and Moss both talk trash as Mak drags Carter over.

Tag to Moss and the Outliers mug Carter in their corner. Moss fires off forearm after forearm until the ref counts to 4, and Moss is all fired up! Moss flexes at Smith and then drags Carter up. Carter throws more body shots and an uppercut! Moss shoves but Carter hits Mak! Carter fights out of the corner, but runs into a lift and SLAM DUNK! Tag to Mak and Moss drags Carter up. Moss feeds Carter to Mak’s huge suplex! Cover, TWO! Mak is annoyed and fans rally up. Tag to Moss, the Outliers mug Carter more, and Moss grinds his forearms into Carter’s face in a thrashing chinlock. Carter endures as fans continue to rally.

Carter fights up, arm-drags Moss off, but leaps into Moss’s arms! Carter sunset flips, Moss drags him up and back suplexes, but Carter lands on his feet! Hot tag to Smith! And Smith fires off furious forearms! Backbreaker! Moss flounders to a corner but Smith whips. Moss reverses, Smith goes up and dodges to BOOT back! Smith keeps moving to shotgun BOOT! He dropkicks Mak away but Moss RAMS him in the corner! Moss and Mak are fired up all over again, and shouts, “IT’S OVER!” Moss drags Smith up as Mak climbs, but Smith cradle counters! Mak is too slow in hopping down, Smith & Carter win!!

Winners: Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter, Smith by pinfall

The Outliers got too cocky again! And because of that, Carter & Smith have a huge first win together! Will Carter & Smith make big leaps and bounds in 2020? Will the Outliers ever get things right?

 

The NXT UK Tag Team titles are Gallus!

But for how long? A Fatal 4 Way Ladder Match is coming in Blackpool! Gallus defends against familiar foes in the Grizzled Young Veterans and the South Wales Subculture, but now you add in Imperium and things are going to be even crazier! The brawling, the talking, it gave Johnny Saint and Sid Scala no choice but to make this match. Zack Gibson and James Drake are upset that this “ridiculous” stipulation was added. If you want to watch “blokes climbing ladders,” go watch some daytime television do-it-yourself show. Imperium says ladders have nothing to do with their sacred sport, but if this is what they must do to sanctify the division, then so be it.

Nigel McGuinness says that looking back on the legends and icons that have been in ladder matches, these kinds of matches can make careers. Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews promise that no one flies higher than them, especially in a ladder match. They will do everything they can to again become champions. Gallus promises to bring “complete annihilation and domination” to the table. Sid Scala and Johnny Saint can’t wait to see this match happen. Will NXT UK remain Gallus? Will Imperium completely take over? Or will history be made with the first-ever two-time NXT UK Tag Team Champions? Who establishes their kingdom?

 

No Disqualifications: Ilja Dragunov VS Alexander Wolfe!

Despite there being no rules but to win, there is a ringside ban of Gallus and Imperium! This must be settled between the Moscow Madman and the dangerous German Ax-man! Who wins and who survives this battle in the war for NXT UK?

But since there are no rules, Ilja goes after Wolfe the second he makes his entrance! So the fight starts on the ramp! The titantron gives us the silhouette of the fight as the New World Symphony plays, it’s incredibly theatrical! But then things spill down the ramp and to ringside, Wolfe rams Ilja into the apron! Wolfe throws off his jacket, but Ilja was waiting for that so he could CHOP Wolfe! Ilja clubs Wolfe on the back then fights him around the corner. Ilja CHOPS again and headlocks, but Wolfe back suplexes him onto the apron! Wolfe gets in and grabs Ilja by the face. Wolfe shouts something in German but Ilja slips out and around to BACK HAND and senton! Fans fire up with Ilja as he goes up top, but he has to leap over Wolfe.

Wolfe kicks low and whips but Ilja reverses. Wolfe falls out of the ring hard, Ilja builds speed but Wolfe avoids the 619. Wolfe hops up but gets a BIG knee strike! Ilja climbs up top and aims, to LEAP for a big ax handle! Fans fire up with Ilja again as he stands tall! Ilja throws Wolfe into the ring and decides to take full advantage of the No Disqualification stipulation. Ilja gets a kendo stick! Fans cheer as Ilja grins and gets in the ring. Ilja swings but Wolfe blocks and disarms him! Impressive. Ilja dares Wolfe to hit him in the head. Ilja takes his fighting stance, Wolfe grins and puts the stick down. Fans boo, but Wolfe dares Ilja to use the stick. Ilja hesitates but goes to pick it up, only for Wolfe to KICK him down! Wolfe picks the stick back up and SMACKS Ilja on the back!

Ilja writhes but Wolfe sits him up to SMACK him again! Wolfe is having fun playing around with the stick before he SMACKS Ilja again! Wolfe gives toying jabs and smacks, and even mockingly knights Ilja. Ilja slaps the stick away, and blocks the head shot! Ilja and Wolfe struggle for control, but Ilja CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Wolfe BOOTS, then uses the stick as part of a cobra clutch BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Wolfe brings the stick around to jam into Ilja’s face as part of the chinlock. Fans rally up and Ilja fights up, but Wolfe gets the kendo stick inside Ilja’s mouth! Ilja bites on the stick as he fights up again! Ilja powers the stick off and throws Wolfe away. Wolfe comes back to enziguri! Wolfe runs, but into a SMACK! Ilja fires up as he SMACKS and SMACKS again!

Wolfe bails out of the ring but Ilja pursues. Ilja SMACKS but Wolfe catches it. Wolfe forearms, Ilja slips away and 6-1-SMACKS Wolfe down! Fans are all fired up with Ilja as he slams the stick down. Ilja gets a new idea, and starts searching under the ring. Fans of course want tables, and Ilja finds a table! Ilja stands the table up against the ring then throws Wolfe into the steel steps! Ilja slides the table into the ring and sets it up in a corner. Fans rally as the wood is wedged in place. Wolfe crawls up but Ilja stomps on him. Ilja drags Wolfe in, wrenches and reels him in, but Wolfe blocks the suplex! Wolfe throws body shots and turns things around, but now Ilja blocks. Ilja slips out and has a waistlock! Wolfe fights off the German Suplex with elbows, standing switches, but now Ilja blocks! Ilja throws Wolfe off and BOOTS him out of the ring!

Fans cheer as Ilja catches his breath and builds speed. But Wolfe throws a CHAIR at Ilja’s head! Wolfe then drags Ilja off the top to a fireman’s carry, APRON DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! It was double-edged and the referee checks on both men. The fans are stunned, but both men are okay to continue. Wolfe has the chair again and puts it in the ring. Fans still rally for Ilja as Wolfe puts him in the ring. Wolfe drags Ilja over and headlocks, but Ilja fights out! Ilja enziguris Wolfe down! Wolfe goes for the chair but Ilja stands on it. Ilja shakes his head, “No,” then baits Wolfe into a KNEE! Ilja returns the chair shot! Fans fire up as Ilja grabs the chair again. Ilja wedges the chair in Wolfe’s face before going to the adjacent corner. Ilja climbs, fans build anticipation, FULL METAL COAST2COAST! Cover, TWO!! Wolfe survives and shocks Ilja!

Fans rally up again as both Ilja and Wolfe slowly rise. Ilja goes back out and grabs something more from under the ring. He brings in a chair and then confiscates the timekeeper’s chair! And the announcer’s, and another! Fans fire up as Ilja brings all these things together into a chair pile. Ilja has Wolfe in the corner and up on the top rope. Fans anticipate what’s coming next as Ilja climbs up to join Wolfe. Wolfe resists and slips out, to get Ilja on his shoulders! Ilja holds on for dear life and hammers away. So Wolfe trips him up, and GERMAN SUPLEXES Ilja onto the chair pile! Then a DDT onto more chairs! Cover, TWO!! Ilja lives and Wolfe can’t believe it! “This is Awesome!” as Wolfe clears chairs away. Wolfe has one chair for his own and he SMACKS Ilja on the back!

Wolfe puts the chair under Ilja’s chin, and JAMS it off the mat!! Ilja gasps and sputters to breathe, but Wolfe isn’t done with him. Wolfe has another chair in hand. But Ilja stands up straight, which makes Wolfe hesitate. But Wolfe still JAMS the chair into Ilja’s stomach, then takes one of Ilja’s hands to mouse trap SNAP it inside the chair! Ilja writhes, his hand more than likely shattered! But Wolfe shows no mercy, he wants the other hand! Wolfe grabs it, brings it over, and SNAPS the chair shut! Wolfe says this is what Ilja gets for choosing the wrong side. But Ilja dodges the chair shot to LARIAT! Ilja can’t use his hands but he still has his arms! Fans fire up behind Ilja as he fireman’s carries Wolfe! DEATH VALLEY THROUGH THE TABLE!!

Hull is thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” as well as Ilja. Ilja goes to the corner, “UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!!” TORPEDO MOSCOW!! Cover, Ilja wins!!

Winner: Ilja Dragunov, by pinfall

As Tom Philips asks, “What is Ilja Dragunov made of?!” But whether superhuman or something more, Ilja won this match and the adoration of this audience! Will this be a pivotal battle in the war for NXT UK?

But wait! Imperium attacks now that the ringside ban is lifted! Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner are beating down Ilja! They drag Ilja up and to the corner, Barthel hops up as Aichner lifts Ilja, EUROBOMB!! Walter takes his time walking out, WWE United Kingdom Championship in hand. Fans boo as Imperium stands tall here tonight. But here comes JOE COFFEY! Coffey gives Walter All the Best for the Bells, then runs off! The Iron King won’t let the Ring General rest easy with TakeOver: Blackpool II looming. Will NXT UK still be Gallus? Or will Imperium finally take over?

 


 

My Thoughts:

What a great episode! Mastiff has fun squashing Kona Reeves, Ohno VS Ligero was a real good match, and I think it’s really great that we’re going to see Mastiff VS Ohno soon. That will literally be the biggest test for Ohno’s mission of being purely British Wrestling so far. Carter & Smith VS The Outliers, Mak & Moss, was a really fun tag match. Mak & Moss are already a great team and great Heels, and this is actually a really hilarious thing for them to be: choke artists. Both guys are former football players, and normal professional sports have moments like this where a team or player chokes when they’ve got it in the bag, so it’s pretty clever for that to be how these two start. I’d think these two get a win eventually, and celebrate as if they’d won titles just to up the ridiculousness of these two.

The Women’s Championship plug was a really good segment. Toni Storm is doing great blurring the lines, where she was almost Face but she pulled a Heel move of asking a favor everyone knew Piper wasn’t going to honor. KLR is being booked as a great manipulative Heel, and that is definitely how the Triple Threat is going to go. The NXT UK Tag Team Ladder Match video package was great, but that was a given. And the No Disqualifications match, WOW. Roughly 20 minutes and it was just so good. I don’t think I’ve seen something quite like the chair mouse trap spot, and Ilja did a great job selling. It works great that Ilja won, as it spurs Imperium to go after him. I was surprised it wasn’t all of Gallus retaliating but Joe Coffey’s hit and run with the lariat was still a great move. We have the go-home next week, that’s going to be great.

My Score: 8.3/10

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!

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!

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
