PLAY BY PLAY

NXT, you can be anyone you want to be.

But the Queen makes sure Rhea Ripley is ready to fill the crown. The Broserweights now reign, Captain Kai has a new teammate, and the Blackheart fought for his life, only to be betrayed! But tonight, the Experience is back and looks to have a takeover of his own! Will Velveteen Dream wish he’d never returned?

 

The Undisputed Era open NXT!

But only one belt remains around the waist of Adam Cole BAYBAY! And Cole says “I told you~!” Obsession will never defeat destiny, and Cole showed Ciampa that the hard way. Just like anyone else will learn when they step into the ring with “the greatest NXT Champion there has ever been.” But what is that thing Ciampa kept asking? If he could ever be a champion like Cole? “That dummy” got his answer, and it’s Undisputed. Because the fact is, the title is going nowhere! The Undisputed Era are the measuring stick of the brand. They are going to set examples like Strong will against “the charade” that is The Velveteen Dream.

But speaking of, The Dream is here already! “Roddy, tonight, you have a chance.” A chance to prove something. Strong should leave his boys at home and prove he is a man. “Do it for Marina. Because when we do it tonight, let’s make it a night just for us.” Strong shouts at Dream that as everything he is as a man, he will make Dream wish he’d never come back!

The Irish Ace has been on a world tour with the title ever since Worlds Collide, but now the time has come. The Man of the Hour wants the title back, but will he be able to collect off the Devlinside?

Backstage interview with Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzales.

The record books will say #CapKota defeated Tegan Nox in Portland, we all know it was thanks to the Daughter of the Desperado. What is the reason for this new alliance? “Tegan Nox has gotten every opportunity, and pushed Dakota aside.” Raquel knows what that feels like, watching others get opportunities first. Dakota was overlooked by her so-called friends, yet is an outcast for standing up for herself. Portland proved Raquel has Dakota’s back way more than anyone else ever has. Dakota will return the favor, and together they will be untouchable.

NXT GM William Regal walks over and congratulates Dakota on her win. And yes, this duo is untouchable. Except Raquel will be banned from ringside when Dakota and Tegan have their rematch in two weeks, in a Steel Cage! Did Captain Kick just step in it?

 

NXT shares backstage interview footage of Rhea Ripley after TakeOver: Portland.

The Aussie Nightmare retained her NXT Women’s Championship, but the celebration was cut short by Charlotte Flair “deciding” to accept the WrestleMania challenge. Rhea says the joke’s on Charlotte, because Rhea got what she wanted. At Mania, even the Queen will have a nightmare. Will this historic move prove to be Charlotte’s greatest achievement or worst decision yet?

 

Austin Theory VS ???

Evolution’s Theory is back again, ready to prove himself, but Tommaso Ciampa is storming down the ramp. Ciampa isn’t Theory’s opponent and he grabs a mic while ignoring the young gun in the ring. Fans chant “Daddy’s Home!” as Ciampa goes up the steps and into the ring. “NXT TakeOver: Portland…” Theory steps up to Ciampa, and Ciampa is in no mood. He warns Theory, “Not tonight.” Theory gives Ciampa his space and Ciampa continues. “A part of me feels like maybe I should’ve seen this all coming.” Ciampa was so focused on Goldie and getting his “life” back that he stopped paying attention to his surroundings. There were subtle signs, like the odd timing of a tag team reunion. Ciampa stopped listening to his instincts. “But if one thing goes hand in hand with Tommaso Ciampa and the NXT Championship, it is and always has been Johnny Gargano.”

Fans chant and duel, “Johnny Sucks!” “No!” Ciampa isn’t doing the cliche “Why Johnny Why?” but he knows why. Gargano knows why. And if there’s one thing Ciampa knows- Theory grows impatient and steps to Ciampa again! Ciampa DECKS Theory immediately! “If one thing is very clear, in order to get my life back, there can be no Johnny Gargano in NXT.” The DIY frenemies are at odds again, will Ciampa and Gargano finally settle things? Theory gets up and goes after Ciampa as he leaves, only to get a BOOT! Ciampa’s bad mood boils over and he PSYCHO KNEES Theory down! And then throws him into railing! And more railing! Now back the other way! Then the other way! Ciampa isn’t stopping! Theory gets about ten tosses total, and then 11!

Ciampa finally lets up, but it is clear his Blackheart is even darker than normal. Will Gargano regret ever returning the favor from 2017?

 

Chelsea Green has an NXT photo shoot.

Robert Stone has his top client (and only client) look her absolute best. But will she be looking like a winner in her “relaunch” rematch with Kayden Carter?

 

Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde VS Grizzled Young Veterans!

The man who rides the Mendoza Line teams with his wild 205 Live rival to see if they can be an impressive combination. But will Mendoza & Wilde be tamed by Mr. Mayhem and Liverpool’s Number One?

The teams sort out and Zack Gibson starts with Wilde. The two tie up, and Gibson has a chinbar. He uses that to wrangle Wilde down but Wilde handsprings and dropkicks back! BEW BEW BEW BEW! They tie up again, Gibson waistlocks but Wilde standing switches. Gibson whips out, Wilde reverses but James Drake uses his body to save Gibson from buckles. Gibson knees Wilde in return, then tags in Drake. GYV complete the hand-off, but Wilde powers out. Drake runs Wilde over, then things speed up. Wilde leaps over, keeps moving, Drake leaps over, but Wilde rolls under. Wilde huricanranas Drake! Drop toehold and a hook to the ghost pin! TWO, but Wilde keeps on Drake with a wristlock.

Winners: Grizzled Young Veterans, by pinfall

The fans take off their shoes to troll Gibson, but he and Drake still won. Gibson grabs a mic to shout, “The land of the free and the home of the brave! Nah. The land of the neckbeards, and the home of the ignorant Yanks!” The Grizzled Young Veterans are here to takeover NXT, and are SOON to be recognized as the World’s Number One! Will GYV punch their own ticket to a rematch with the Broserweights?

 

The Broserweights VS Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch!

Speaking of, bro… Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne smoked the Undisputed Era and took the titles for their own! They being a duo that came together from seemingly nowhere take on a duo whose origins are very much alike. Which team of well-blended singles wrestlers has the right stuff tonight?

Before the match, Riddle and Dunne gets mics as fans cheer. “Bro… Where’s our golf cart?” Riddle got it impounded, too! Oh. But what matters is that the Broserweights are the brand new NXT Tag Team Champions! Fans say, “You Deserve It!” “And bro, the celebration continues.” Riddle and Dunne partied hard in Portland. Stallion Pete is a machine. “Just look at him, bro.” But Stallion Cup partied too hard, and unfortunately failed the WWE’s wellness policy and has been suspended 30 days. It’s a thing, guys. But that news aside, Lorcan & Burch hit the ring and it’s time to throw down!

The teams sort out and Burch starts with Dunne. The two tie up and Dunne wrenches to a wristlock. Dunne wrenches more, but Burch reverses to a wristlock, hammerlock and then headlock. Dunne brings Burch down to then float to a grounded hammerlock. He stands on Burch’s head to lace up the legs in a figure four! Dunne bends and pulls Burch around to a modified bow ‘n’ arrow, then smashes the knees. Burch kicks Dunne away and fans cheer the technical and gritty exchange. Dunne and Burch tie up again and go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength. Burch kicks, spins Dunne around but Dunne avoids the stomp to get an armbar! Burch moves around, and gets a crossface! Dunne rolls to a cover, TWO! Fans cheer as the two stare down.

Tag to Riddle and Lorcan! Lorcan and Riddle tie up. Lorcan lunges but Riddle blocks. Riddle gets a gut wrench and he throws Lorcan! But he holds on to drag Lorcan back up. Dunne intercepts Burch, stereo gut wrench suplexes! Tag and the Broserweights work together, corkscrew senton and a basement dropkick for Lorcan! Fans cheer as the One Two regroup and NXT goes to break.

NXT returns as Burch has Riddle in a Half Crab. Fans rally up as Lorcan tags in. Burch drags Riddle up and the One Two combine for an assisted powerbomb! Cover, TWO and now Lorcan has the Half Crab on Riddle! The Boston Brawler reaches back and shifts right to an STF! Riddle endures and gets his leg free. Fans rally up again as Riddle fireman’s carries Lorcan for a BRO TO SLEEP! Lorcan flounders and tags Burch, and Burch turns Riddle. Riddle boots Burch then tags Dunne! Dunne rallies on Burch, rebound German! Dunne hops up, and STOMPS the hands! BUZZSAW! X-PLEX to the AMRBAR! Burch resists with a monkey grip but Dunne breaks it! And has the fingers! Burch endures, moves around to a cover, TWO!

Dunne ducks Burch but Burch standing switches. Riddle tags and Dunne elbows Burch. Burch gets under the moonsault, but ends up in the enziguri sandwich! Dunne drags Burch up to powerbomb into the enziguri! Cover, but Lorcan breaks it! Fans fire up as all four men slowly rise. Lorcan throws Dunne out, but Riddle gives Lorcan FINAL FLASH!

Burch whips, pops up, but gets a SUPER BRO PUNCH! Riddle POWERBOMBS and flips Burch, but Burch ROCKS Riddle! Dunne tags in to enziguri Burch! Lorcan tags in to CHOP Dunne! And CHOP! And CHOP! Lorcan runs to EuroUpper! BLOCKBUSTER! Fans fire up with the Fury as he runs corner to corner, only to leap into Dunne’s arms! Dunne bends the fingers! And SNAPS! Tag to Riddle, pump handle, BITTER FINAL FLASH! Cover, Broserweights win!

Winners: The Broserweights, by pinfall

An incredible match and only just days after Portland! Will the reign of Riddle and Dunne run all the way through WrestleMania?

 

The Undisputed Era huddle up backstage.

Strong says he is going to do this by himself. He knows the Undisputed Era can destroy Dream, but Strong has to do this for himself! The #StrongDreamRematch will be 1v1, man to man, but does that play right into Dream’s plan?

 

The Forgotten Sons put out a tweet.

“Grizzled Young Veterans… You want to put us on notice. Message received.” And in an accompanying video, Steve Cutler, Wesley Blake and Jaxson Ryker “let that sink in.” Gibson and Drake call themselves “Grizzled Young Veterans” but they don’t even have an idea what a “veteran” is! And using insults like “neckbeard” and “ignorant Yanks,” Blake takes those personally! Ryker says this IS the land of the free because of the brave. And they promise to beat that into GYV. Will Gibson and Drake wish they’d stayed in the UK?

 

Keith Lee is here!

And he is still NXT North American Champion after that newest instant classic with Dominik Dijakovic! WWE Backstage also basked in his glory, and spoke to the huge moments Lee has had. Lee is touched to know that those he has studied now respect what he’s capable of. Lee wants to be a leader by example, not by ordering people around. Fans cheer as Lee holds the title up high in the ring. They sing for Lee as he grabs a mic. But before he can speak, he is interrupted by The Finest! Kona Reeves returns from a short time in NXT UK, and he does not look happy. Reeves gets himself a mic, but then gets a POUNCE! “You can ring the bell.”

Keith Lee VS Kona Reeves!

The bell does ring and Reeves runs into Lee’s knees! Lee fireman’s carries for the BIG BANG CATASTROPHE! Cover, Lee wins!

Winner: Keith Lee, by pinfall

Lee is Limitless, and he proved The Finest isn’t anywhere on his level! But wait, here comes Dijakovic! The Colossus joins Lee in the ring and tells Keith that he’s not ready to move on. They both know that Dijakovic almost beat Lee. That top rope move, that almost finished Lee but it did finish Dijakovic’s back. That’s why there was no Feast Your Eyes. Because if Dijakovic hit that move- “If! If!” That’s all Lee hears from Dijakovic right now. Excuses, excuses. You can say “if” all you want, but the fact is: Lee won! But Lee does admit, everywhere Lee VS Dijakovic has gone, it’s always the same thing. Fans say “Fight Forever!” So while Dijakovic didn’t win that last time, Lee and the fans are up for it. If Regal approves, then they really can fight forever. Are we getting yet another epic rematch?!

 

Chelsea Green w/ Robert Stone VS Kayden Carter!

“If I could have your attention, please.” Robert Stone introduces “the face of the women’s division,” and the “relaunch” is here. But will Green silence the doubters when she finally gets a win?

The bell rings and Green circles with KC. Green kicks low then scoops KC, but KC cradle counters! TWO, and KC grabs an arm. Green grabs hair but the ref reprimands. KC spins out and CHOPS Green! KC ducks a kick to club and LARIAT Green down! Fans fire up and KC takes off all the armbands! Green reverses the whip, KC wheelbarrows and MULE KICKS! Cover, TWO! Green checks her jaw but KC drags her up. KC clubs and wrenches to CHOP and springboard, but Green trips her up! Green hits a draping backbreaker across her knee! Cover, TWO! Green drags KC up and throws in big knees to the ribs! And then one into the head! Cover as Stone is liking what he sees, TWO! Stone doesn’t like that.

Green goes after KC with a camel clutch and has it in deep! KC endures and fans rally up, but Green adds a neck wrench before she knocks KC down. KC gets to ropes but Green drags her up. Green has her between ropes for a guillotine! Cover, TWO! Green goes after KC and grabs her hair. Green whips KC corner to corner but KC goes up, under and tries to roll her. But Green holds ropes and stands on KC’s hair! Green starts stomping but Bianca Belair rolls in!? “Uh-uh, uh-uh!” Bianca says she’s happy for Green, and she’ll let her finish, but Bianca has something to say.

“Now girl, I done told you, you don’t even go here.” But if Charlotte wants to put her hands on Bianca, Bianca wants Charlotte. Here, there, when or where, Belair promises Flair, “I’ma whoop dat ass.” Add “boldest” to the list as Bianca calls Charlotte out! Bianca takes her leave, and Green rolls KC up! Cover, TWO! Green drags KC up, backslides, TWO! Now Green tries La Magistrol, TWO! KC ducks and SUPERKICKS! Green gets out of the ring to regroup with Stone but KC pursues. KC puts Green in, but Stone trips her up! Green gives KC an inverted Unprettier! Cover, Green wins!

Winner: Chelsea Green, by pinfall

THE Robert Stone makes sure his brand finally succeeds by any means necessary! Will the brand be bigger and better now that it’s off the ground? And when will we see Queen VS EST? Will it be part of NXT or WWE?

My Thoughts:

A really great episode for NXT tonight! Post-TakeOver episodes have definitely changed for the better now that NXT TV is 100% live. We didn’t get as much aftermath interview promos this week, but honestly, the rest of the night took care of a lot of that. The one we got of Rhea Ripley was a really good one, helping set up her match with Charlotte at Mania. But as we’d hoped, Bianca Belair had her own response to what Charlotte did. It was also pretty hilarious that she interrupted Green VS Carter for a moment. It was also clever that Green gets a win not because of Bianca but because of what we all expected: Robert Stone interferes. I’m thinking we’ll need a Green VS Carter tiebreaker, and Belair VS Flair could easily happen on either Raw or NXT, or even both because we can’t have just one of those.

The opener of the NXT Cruiserweight Championship match was great stuff, but that was obvious given the two men involved. Devlin wins and I would think he defends the title against a top NXT UK contender for TakeOver: Dublin. And I would think because it’ll be Dublin, Ireland, Devlin would get a Face reaction, so he could even face a fellow Heel in that match. Ciampa interrupting Austin Theory’s match was a good move, though it makes Belair’s move look like she was copying him. Ciampa VS Theory next week will be a great match for sure, though I wonder if Gargano will interfere to propel their story for TakeOver: Tampa. Lee squashing Reeves was perfect, and man, if we’re getting another Lee VS Dijakovic, that could really set the bar high for Mania weekend.

We got some great tag team matches out of GYV VS Mendoza & Wilde and Broserweights VS Lorcan & Burch. Naturally GYV and the Broserweights won because it feels like those two teams are going to have a rematch down the line. And I think we’re about to see The Forgotten Sons try a Face turn similar to Lacey Evans’, where they finally play up the patriotism angle. Their match with GYV will be a good one, but I don’t know if the Full Sail fans will accept the Sons going Face so easily as the Raw audience accepted Lacey. Strong VS Dream was a great match, though a bit sloppy at times. Maybe it was meant to be sloppy, especially since this was Dream’s first match back. In the end, Dream wins only to get beat down for it, so I suspect a bigger match coming down the line.

My Score: 9.3/10

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!

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.

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!

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
