PLAY BY PLAY

The Inner Circle “hurt some people,” and that included AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley!

After The Maniac took the title off Chris Jericho, Jericho and his boys made sure to rough him up last week. A beating before the tag match main event, a beating after the main event, and a POWERBOMB off the stageWill the Death Rider ride again and get his revenge?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Hangman Page backstage.

With Kenny Omega still out of action because of a busted hand, the Cowboy must find a substitute against Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara. But before he can even answers, the Young Bucks interrupt. Matt Jackson wants to know why they’re even over here. Hangman says he needs someone he can trust, so that’s NOT why Matt and Nick are here. He wouldn’t team with those two if they were the last people on Earth. Well, not Matt. Maybe Nick. Is Nick still good after the ass whooping he got? Nah, Hangman keeps his partner a secret. It isn’t Nick, right? That aside, is the Elite still (not) fine?

Christopher Daniels addresses the AEW Faithful.

In a blatant parody of the Dark Order’s videos, the Fallen Angel asks, “Are you tired of being told you’re a loser? Have you been waiting for a higher power to reveal themselves?” Daniels introduces himself, and is sure you remember him from such videos as Being the Elite and Chris Daniels Almost Dies. But today, he has a very important message. “Screw the Dark Order!” When AEW started, the Dark Order had momentum as an undefeated team poised for success. But that ended when they faced Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky, aka SCU. So the Dark Order created videos that targeted the lost and frustrated, and created this character known as “The Exalted One, a shadowy figure whose favor people would strive to gain as they followed the orders of Stu and Uno.”

But the only ones who saw any success were Stu and Uno. All that time spent trying to fool you into thinking someone like Daniels was the Exalted One all along was a lie. A smokescreen used to hide the fact that Uno and Stu have no easy answers, and that there is NO Exalted One. Now surely, you’re thinking, “Christopher Daniels, how can you prove these bold accusations that you’re making?” Daniels challenges Uno and Stu to singles matches wherever and whenever they choose. It could be AEW Dynamite, AEW Dark, a PPV, or even a random parking lot. But when Daniels beats them and no Exalted One comes to the rescue, Daniels will have proven Uno and Stu are just “sad, desperate men.” #ScrewTheDarkOrder, #DarkOrderSucks.

 

Six Man Tag: Jurassic Express VS MJF, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny & Wardlow!

Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt have been on a roll in the New Year, but is that about to change? Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his mercenaries start their own successful trios record?

The trios sort out and Marko steps to MJF. MJF laughs but fans are strongly behind Marko. MJF takes his time taking off his Letterman jacket to again show off the “I Pinned Cody” shirt.

Saurus sends MJF into his mercs! Fans fire up as Saurus crawls, hot tag to  no one as the mercs drag Marko and JB down! Butcher SLAMS Mark on the apron!!

Saurus runs at MJF but gets caught into a kneebar! MJF cranks on the bad leg but Saurus gets the ropebreak. The ref counts and MJF lets go, but MJF grabs the leg and brings Saurus around. MJF hooks Saurus for a standing toehold as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Aubrey reprimands the mercs for helping MJF get leverage in the deathlock. She counts but they won’t let go, so she kicks their arms! They drop MJF on the mat! Fans cheer Aubrey’s moxie while MJF tags in Blade. Blade goes after Saurus but Saurus CHOPS him down! Fans rally up but Blade KICKS Saurus back to the corner. Marko is still in bad shape while Saurus fights out of enemy territory. Blade avoids the Tail Whip but not the return! MJF tags in and he just flops on Saurus’ legs. Saurus powers up and drags MJF and blade with him as he walks towards the corner! Fans are thunderous but Blade and MJF trip him up. They roll him, but he breaks through the clotheslines, hot tag to Jungle Boy!

Jungle Boy dodges MJF and Blade to shotgun dropkick Butcher! JB boots MJF then rolling elbows Blade! He throws Blade aside to SUPERKICK MJF! Corner uppercut for Blade, enziguri for Butcher, and then JB whips. Blade reverses but JB comes back with a LARIAT! MJF runs in but JB spins him around to KICK out the leg! Imploding senton and springboard QUEBRADA onto Blade! Jungle Boy has cleared the ring, but he builds speed, only to run into Butcher’s grip! Marko returns and jumps onto Butcher’s back!

But MJF and Blade catch him, so JB DIVES! Down go MJF and Blade!

Marko and JB get back in and go together. Luchasaurus FLIES out onto Butcher, Blade and MJF! Fans lose their minds and even Saurus’ boys can’t believe that one. Saurus drags Blade up and into the ring, then adds MJF. Saurus tags in and JB brings MJF around. JB feeds MJF to Saurus, and Saurus has both MJF and Blade in choke grips. DOUBLE DINO CHOKE SLAMS!! Standing moonsault! Cover, Marko runs to intercept Butcher, but Butcher THROWS him at JB, and they fall onto the fall!! Saurus stares down with Butcher and they RAM like, well, rams! And again! And again! They both choke grip, break free, throw forearm after forearm, but Butcher gets the edge, Until he gets the knee and TAIL WHIP! But Butcher still LARIATS!

Everyone is down and Bunny is freaking out! Marko tags in and MJF is down in a corner! Marko runs in to fire off stomps! It’s a Marko mudhole! The ref backs him off, and Marko apologizes, before he slides under! Marko stomps MJF more!! JB pulls Marko off but Marko shoves him away. Marko tells JB to go up and he drags MJF over. Bunny distracts everyone else, and Blade shoves JB down! Wardlow blindsides Luchasaurus! MJF grabs Marko, and reels him into the FUJIWARA! Marko taps, MJF and team win!!

Winners: MJF, The Butcher & The Blade, by submission

The Salt of the Earth armbar gets the better of a heated Marko, and MJF mockingly shouts, “I’m going to Disney World!” But will he and his henchmen really be heading to the top of the food chain in AEW?

 

Darby Allin has another message.

He slams his skateboard on a car hood with “WIN” and a heart spray painted on it. He wears a cardboard mask of Chris Jericho’s bloody face. Then he wears a cardboard mask of Sammy’s face while being zipped up in a body bag by Jericho-cardboard mask. “Sammy” is dragged by a truck labeled, “RIP Sammy.” The message is pretty clear: Darby still wants to end the Spanish God. When and where will Darby get his chance?

 

Tony Schiavone introduces Britt Baker.

The Dentist returns to AEW Dynamite and is happy to see Tony here. It’s not like there’s much else going on in Utah. She did bring him his favorite coffee. Britt would’ve brought beer but you’d have to cross state lines for that. But anyway, boring coffee and boring Utah, but Britt’s here to liven things up. What’s not hard to find is sugar, because she’s seeing a lot of “high BMI” and poor oral health. Britt is here to help as a dentist! Because remember, she’s a dentist.

Tony guides things towards the announcement Britt was going to make. Britt wants to remind us all, especially these “similar looking faces” in this “giant family reunion,” that you can pursue anything and everything you have a passion for. You can get that promotion, become that construction worker, or janitor, or plumber, or dental assistant. We can all achieve greatness! Britt is here as our role model and will lead by example. Tony has to be honest, she isn’t really making a lot of friends here. Britt ignores that to thank the fans for their “warm, standing ovations.” Fans chant “You Suck,” actually. But out comes Big Swole! Fans cheer for her!

Swole encourages “Brittney” to keep talking, because that’s what she’s good at. Britt acts like no one watches the product and no one would hear Britt run her mouth. Why is she hiding behind Tony? He don’t even like her! Tony doesn’t want to be in the middle of this, even though he is. Britt asks why Swole is out here when she’s not even relevant. The most relevant thing about Swole is her boyfriend. Uh, you mean, husband, BAYBAY! Britt gets mad now, and SPLASHES Swole with the coffee!! And she runs away. Swole shrugs that off but is ready to make the Dentist need some dental work! Will Swole break Baker when they meet again?

 

Six Man Tag: Joey Janela & Private Party VS Death Triangle!

The Bad Boy stood up for Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy when PAC, Pentagon and Fenix attacked on AEW Dark Denver. Will the Bastard and Cero Miedo kill the party here tonight?

AEW returns to single picture as Private Party makes their entrance, followed by Death Triangle. The tensions run high but the referee keeps the peace.

AEW’s Lexi Nair interviews Dustin Rhodes backstage.

The Natural is now geared up to compete, but he isn’t scheduled. What does it mean? It means Dustin is pissed off! The Inner Circle has run roughshod long enough! We all saw what they did to Nick Jackson, so now someone is stepping up. Hangman, Dustin wants to be your partner whether you like it or not! Because they’re gonna kick some Inner Circle ass and do some #CowboyShit!! Will Hangman accept this scenario?

 

AEW is picture in picture and back at the ring.

Orange Cassidy and Best Friends have the ring while Death Triangle takes their leave. With nothing else to do, Trent, Chuckie and Cassidy give Salt Lake City a GROUP HUG! And a thumbs up, too.Cassidy even takes a selfie with a cosplayer before heading out.

 

The #SearchForSpears has some early auditions.

Suge D, “Something Like a Player” says he is the first and the last impression Tully Blanchard and the Chair Man need. But WhatCulture’s own Simon Miller throws his hat in the ring to give us the best tag team anyone’s ever seen! Holden Stefe wants Spears and Tully to mold and train him into the perfect partner! And the man simply known as Jo Jo says he is the Perfect 5, because he is 5′ 4″ of pure greatness. Justyn Michael not only claims he’s the right choice, but he could beat Hangman, beat Kenny Omega and doesn’t even need Spears’ help. Did Justyn miss the point of this? Mr. Bricksterr says he has the star power and the ability to connect with people instantly. Anthony Bowens says he is THE Five Tool Player! And Slade Rikers is just crazy. But do any of these men measure up to #PERFECT10N?

 

AEW Dynamite in Rochester promises big things!

First, after the encounter from tonight, Death Triangle’s Lucha Brothers will go 2v2 against Best Friends! Will the Bastard go after the Sloth on the outside at the same time? Plus, the Dark Order promises that The Exalted One WILL arrive in AEW! Are they going to disprove Daniels before even taking his singles challenge? And with Blood & Guts on the horizon, a Six Man Tag of the Inner Circle VS The Elite will not only be a sampler, it will be for advantage going into the Blood & Guts match! “What advantage?” you ask.

AEW explains the rules of Blood & Guts!

The double ring, double cage match starts with two men who fight for a five minute round. After that, the advantage team sends a participant, then the other team, and this repeats every two minutes until all 10 men are in the cage! Then and only then does the Blood & Guts match officially begin, or rather end. And it ends ONLY when any single member of a team taps out to a submission, or verbally surrenders to the other team. No pinfalls, no count outs, escaping does not change a thing! Who will survive this sadistic innovation?

 

AEW shares Jim Ross’ exclusive sit-down interview with Jon Moxley.

JR congratulates Moxley on winning the world championship, but has to admit that after what went down in Denver, he wasn’t sure when he’d see Moxley again. Moxley is not physically cleared to compete this week. Moxley is bent out of shape and pissed off. That’s about as far as he’ll elaborate, but let’s face it. This “game” between Moxley and Jericho’s Inner Circle has only ever been about the title. Who is winning? Moxley, naturally. But he’s in a 5v1 situation, so he doesn’t stand a chance much longer. Moxley says he means what he says, says what he means, and he speaks the truth. Moxley told us all that if Jericho wants the belt, if Hager wants the belt, all they have to do is ask.

By the way, Hager, nice touch with the very distinct powerbomb. But maybe “step into the batter’s box, bitch.” JR is sure it will be inevitable that match happens. Hager hit Moxley harder than anyone ever did, and that’s saying something given Moxley’s career. But in the end, he’s just another guy in AEW. JR brings up the signature success story, the coming event in Newark, aka Blood & Guts. AEW is blood ‘n’ guts, pro-wrestling is blood ‘n’ guts, Moxley is blood ‘n’ guts. Moxley vows to make it to Dynamite 3/25/2020. The Inner Circle tried to get rid of Moxley, end his career. They almost did. But now they have a new task with the Elite in the cage. That puts Moxley in their blind spot. If Jericho is as smart as he thinks he is, he’ll be scared.

 

Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara w/ The Inner Circle VS Hangman Page & ???

Le Champion and the Spanish God took out Nick Jackson with help from Big Hurt, but that didn’t scare off the Cowboy. In fact, it only served to motivate The Natural into joining up. But Hangman did not confirm nor deny if he accepted the offer to give us a rematch from Dynamite 12/9/19. Hangman makes his entrance, AEW World Tag Team Championship strapped around his waist. The moment of truth comes, and Hangman’s partner is in fact Dustin Rhodes! It seems Hangman didn’t expect this, and perhaps was preferring to go solo. But Dustin says he has Hangman’s back in this. Will things be very different than back in December?

The teams sort out and Hangman starts against Jericho. Hangman taunts Jericho about having a belt while Y2J doesn’t, and the two approach. Only for Jericho to immediately tag out to Sammy. Sammy and Jericho hug and Sammy rushes Hangman but Hangman CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Hangman whips but Sammy reverses. Things speed up as Sammy jumps and flips and jumps again, but Hangman still CHOPS Sammy down! Hangman tags Dustin and they double whip Sammy to the corner. Hangman hits a corner clothesline, Dustin adds his own clothesline, then Dustin feeds Sammy to Hangman’s second clothesline! Dustin covers, TWO!

Dustin puts Sammy in an open corner to CHOP! Then he whips him corner to corner hard! Tag to Hangman but Sammy throws him out. Jericho tags in as the Inner Circle surrounds Hangman. Hangman gets on the apron, but Jericho hits him with a triangle dropkick! The ref tells the Inner Circle to stay back but Jericho mocks Hangman by taking someone’s beer and drinking it. “I’m Hangman Page~! I’m a cowboy~! Slurp!” Jericho goes around to Hangman but Hangman PUNCHES the beer out of Jericho’s mouth! And he takes the beer for his own to chug. But Hangman turns around into Sammy’s Penalty Kick! Sammy flexes then puts Hangman in for Jericho to throw forearms on.

Jericho CHOPS Hangman against ropes then throws elbows. He CHOPS again then tags Sammy. They double whip but Hangman breaks the line and runs Sammy over! Hangman snap suplexes Jericho onto Sammy! Tag to Dustin and Dustin rallies on Sammy with clotheslines! Dustin whips, Sammy reverses, but Dustin stops himself to Rhodes Uppercut! And atomic drop to a bulldog! Dustin even ROCKS Jericho before getting Sammy with a spinning powerslam! Dustin has Sammy in a corner and climbs up to rain down punches! He gets 4 before he has to DECK Jericho! Sammy jumps to DOUBLE STOMP Dustin down! Cover, TWO! Sammy soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.

Sammy distracts the ref while Jericho has Dustin on the outside and he whips him into barriers! Jericho and Sammy distract the ref while the rest of the Inner Circle stomp Dustin down. Jericho fetches Dustin and puts him in the ring for Sammy to cover, TWO! Sammy keeps on Dustin and drags him to the corner. Tag to Jericho and Jericho drags Dustin up to throw forearms. Jericho whips and clotheslines Dustin down! Cocky cover, TWO! Jericho rams knees into Dustin and has him in the corner. Sammy holds Dustin’s arms back so Jericho can throw hands. Tag to Sammy and he RAMS into Dustin’s ribs! Hangman is getting mad but Dustin is throwing hands! Dustin reaches for Hangman but Sammy rams him into the open corner.

Sammy fireman’s carries and does squats with Dustin, to then hit a Samoan Drop! Cover, but Dustin makes it his own ghost pin! TWO and Sammy clobbers Dustin down! AEW returns to single picture as Sammy tags Jericho. Jericho and Sammy drag Dustin up to double whip to ropes and double elbow down! Sammy shows off his spin, and Jericho poses with him. The ref reprimands them but Jericho soaks up the heat. Jericho slaps Dustin around but Dustin throws hands! Dustin runs but into an elbow! LIONSAULT gets knees! Both men are down but fans rally up. Dustin and Jericho crawl, hot tags to Hangman and Sammy!

Hangman rallies on Sammy with lariats and a whip, but Sammy reverses. Hangman ducks and BOOTS Sammy down! Fans are thunderous for “COWBOY SHIT!” as Hangman whips Sammy, but Sammy reverses to ROCK Hangman! Jericho grabs Hangman to run him at buckles, but Hangman counters with a triangle jump LARIAT! Sammy runs in but Hangman dodges to scoop, and FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman kips up to PLANCHA onto Jericho! And then SLIDING LARIAT on Sammy! Cover, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hangman drags him up. Hangman spins Sammy but gets the dragon whip! Jericho tags in and CHOPS Hangman. And again! Jericho whips but Hangman reverses, only for Jericho to hold ropes. Jericho puts Hangman on the apron but Hangman punches back!

Ortiz gets up but Hangman DECKS him! Hangman goes to the corner with Dustin, and they both LEAP!! Dustin crossbodies Sammy and Jericho while Hangman MOONSAULTS Hager and PNP! Dustin clotheslines himself and Sammy out of the ring as fans are thunderous again! Hangman aims at Jericho, slingshot, but into a takedown! Jericho wants and gets the WALLS! Dustin runs in to CLUB Jericho down! Sammy tags in and heads up top, SHOOTING STAR! Hangman moves, Sammy lands on his feet but gets another BOOT! Hangman wants it, but Jericho trips him off the apron!

The ref reprimands Jericho but Jericho throws Hangman at the apron. Hangman rebounds off the ropes to DECK Jericho! Dustin has Sammy for a DESTROYER!! Sammy flounders into a BUCK SHOT!! Cover, Hangman and Dustin win!!

Winners: Dustin Rhodes & Hangman Page, by pinfall

Redemption from December, but the Inner Circle attacks! Fans boo as Hager, Ortiz and Santana help Jericho beat down Dustin and Hangman. Dustin flops out of the ring and Hangman is all alone. With Cody and Matt with Nick at the hospital, who is there to help? KENNY OMEGA! Again, that bad hand won’t stop him from fighting!! Omega uses the cast on Hager but he also gets outnumbered! A shot to the bad arm leaves Omega vulnerable to JUDAS EFFECT! Hangman flounders up but gets knocked down. Wait, Cody is here!? Cody throws hands on the Inner Circle and stomps a mudhole in Jericho! But Hager SPINE BUSTERS him!

The Inner Circle throws Cody out and Ortiz has Cody on the ramp. “WE’RE THE BEST!” Snap suplex to the ramp! Hager goes after Omega’s bad hand with fury, and then Jericho has him go after Hangman. Hager hauls Hangman up the ramp and Ortiz points out to a spot much like they’ve used on victims before. The Inner Circle drag Hangman up just like they did Moxley, but MATT JACKSON makes the save!! Matt SUPERKICKS Hager! And throws Sammy onto him! He DOUBLE SPEARS Proud ‘n’ Powerful!! Matt’s fury boils over, and he flips Hangman off in return for last week.

But then Jericho SMASHES Matt with the chair! And Hangman, too! Chair shots to the head take down the last of the Elite! Jericho even use the chair to pin Matt down while he takes a seat! The Inner Circle give middle fingers to The Elite and to the world! With Omega’s hand busted, Nick hospitalized, and now Cody, Matt and Hangman brutalized, does the Inner Circle already have a major advantage going into Blood & Guts?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite that sets up a lot to AEW’s newest special episode. Not to be mean about Blood & Guts, but well all know it’s a modified WarGames match. I do like that it’s only about submissions and quitting, though. That makes it even more implicitly brutal on paper than a normal WarGames match, and 5V5 makes it even more insane. And it’s great that they’re using it for the Inner Circle VS Elite match that I’ve been wanting to see since AEW Dynamite got going. The brutality in the build tonight was great, too. Nick just being under the garage door like that was perfectly shocking, and the Inner Circle devastated The Elite tonight. I feel like that with Hangman and Matt having problems, it’s all leading to a great moment where those two work together to help The Elite win.

It’s awesome that we got to see Lance Archer arrive and confirmed as Jake the Snake’s client. Archer going after Cody will make for a great story going towards Double or Nothing, regardless if Elite wins or loses Blood & Guts. There’s a lot of great development towards those rumored AEW Trios Championships, too. Jurassic Express VS MJF and henchmen was really good, and Death Triangle’s debut was incredible! I’m thinking Lucha Bros beat Best Friends so that the trio stays strong, and I would love if there was a Trios Division tournament to stretch things to Double or Nothing, where the finals come down to Death Triangle VS Best Friends & Orange Cassidy. That way, AEW can do no wrong with their inaugural world trios champs, as far as the fans go.

The women’s division also had great stuff tonight. The tag match was really good, and it was very clever for Bea to turn on Nyla after they won. AEW should book outside the box by letting Bea stick to her Heel behavior when fighting Nyla, because it isn’t going to matter, fans sounded really behind her against Nyla. Bea will be Face by default but chances are she won’t win against Nyla. Britt had a pretty good promo, but Swole was great with that BAYBAY. That will be a pretty good feud for them both while they wait on the title. Again, AEW can try booking outside the box and have Britt go up against Nyla at some point, but then fans probably go with Nyla. Swole’s going on a good path to become a big name and a great win over Heels like Britt and Nyla.

My Score: 9.4/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Steel Cage, MJF as Special Guest Referee: Wardlow VS Shawn Spears!

The final hurdle is here! If the War Dog can get through the Chair Man inside this cage, he’ll get Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Double or Nothing! But of course, stacking the deck as always, MJF is going to be the officiator in this match, wearing his own custom referee shirt. He claims he’ll call this right down the middle, but will MJF make sure Spears slays the giant and saves him from certain doom on Sunday?

Once again, Wardlow is in cuffs while being escorted to the ring. Fans chant, “WARD~LOW!” the whole way, and Wardlow steps inside the steel. MJF says he’s got those cuffs, as soon as he does the pat down. Wardlow is clean, but MJF “misplaced” the key. Fans boo, because they know this is just another way to rig this match! Spears attacks Wardlow outta nowhere, and MJF has the bell ring! Spears stomps, CLUBS and then throws body shots and more stomps. MJF whistles and has Spears back down, because he “found” the key. But then MJF stomps away on Wardlow, too! MJF knows Wardlow can’t attack him because that’ll violate the match contract!

Spears CLOBBERS Wardlow, stomps him, and MJF smirks. Wardlow gets up but elbows Spears away! Then BOOTS him! But MJF rakes Wardlow’s eyes! Fans boo but MJF eggs them on. Spears drags Wardlow up in the gap between ropes and steel, and both he and MJF run to RAM Wardlow into steel! MJF and Spears high-ten and then soak up the heat. Fans taunt Spears with “TEN! TEN! TEN!” and Spears brings the kneepad down. But Wardlow back drops Spears away! And BOOTS him! MJF stares Wardlow down because again, he can’t be touched. Wardlow endures the taunting, even as MJF SPITS in his face!

But then Wardlow BREAKS the cuffs on his own!? Wardlow CLOBBERS Spears over and over, THROWS him into the steel, then drags him up to TOSS him into more steel! Fans tell MJF he F’d up, but Spears HOTSHOTS Wardlow! Fans boo as Spears hurries up a corner, but Wardlow is after him! Wardlow won’t let Spears escape, he CUBS Spears over and over, then throws him down! Wardlow adjusts on the top rope to SWANTON BOMB! Cover, but of course MJF doesn’t count. Wardlow realizes he should’ve known better. Fans chant, “Ref, You Suck!” but MJF doesn’t care. He’s untouchable in this match! But Wardlow stepping closer does scare him…

Wardlow gets Spears up, but MJF LOW BLOWS him! Spears hurries to fireman’s carry, C4!! Cover, MJF is ready, TWO!! MJF went as fast as humanly possible and Wardlow still got out! Not only that, Spears realizes his finisher juts got buried! Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” as he stirs, but Spears goes outside the cage to get his chair! This non-escape cage match has to end in the ring but Spears brings in his insurance policy! MJF holds Wardlow up for Spears, and Spears winds up, but Wardlow moves! CHAIRSHOT TO MJF!! Wardlow didn’t need to touch MJF to get even with him! And now Spears is stunned as fans chant that he F’d up!

Spears then realizes Wardlow is standing back up. Spears turns around, Wardlow brings the straps down! Spears is now wishing escape was a way to win. Wardlow gets Spears up, POWERBOMB! But that’s just one! Here’s another POWERBOMB! And then a third POWERBOMB! The Powerbomb Symphony has the fans rocking, and a spare ref runs in! Wardlow sets up Spears’ chair, gets Spears back up, and fans are thunderous! Wardlow reels Spears in again, POWERBOMB ON THE CHAIR!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (WILL face MJF at Double or Nothing)

Wardlow got even with Spears, but now he wants MJF! Security rushes in but Wardlow DECKS each of them one at a time! There’s almost no end to these guys, but Wardlow gets that last one with a kick! Wardlow reels this guy in, gets him up, and BOMBS him against the cage!! The man falls into the gap, never to be seen again! Wardlow then climbs up the cage just to make a point that MJF can’t hold him back anymore! Is Wardlow not only going to win his freedom from MJF, but rid AEW of MJF once and for all?

 

AEW’s heart goes out to Uvalde, Texas.

After the tragedy of the school shooting, all any of us can really do is love each other and pray violence stops.

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society walks ‘n’ talks.

Daniel Garcia tells Blackpool Combat Club, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz that this Sunday, Double or Nothing, Anarchy in the Arena, the JAS shows you how violent sports entertainers can really be. But then hold on, who is this bozo wearing a Moxley shirt? Menard and Parker get in this guy’s face. Good quality shirt. Is this polyester? Parker asks if he wants a taste of his switchblade… comb. Y’know what happens when you’re a Moxley fan? FIREBALL from Jericho!! The Wizard strikes again! Will the JAS show no mercy to anyone who isn’t on their side?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

As we celebrate three years of AEW where it all began in Las Vegas, Nevada, we have the biggest AEW World Championship match ever on the biggest night ever, Double or Nothing. And the challenger is the Best in the World, CM PUNK! Fans fire up as Punk makes his entrance! And he sits cross-legged on the stage while he rallies the fans to get louder. Punk continues down to the ring and fans chant his name. Schiavone then introduces the other half of this face-to-face, the AEW World Champion, HANGMAN ADAM PAGE! Fans fire up again as the Cowboy makes his way out, belt on his shoulder.

Hangman joins Punk and Schiavone in the ring and Schiavone says these last few weeks, both men have joined commentary and watched the other go to work. Hangman’s used Go To Sleep, Punk’s used the Buckshot, and there’s been a lot of talk and now, for the first time, they’re standing here for a face-to-face interview. Schiavone starts with Punk, saying Punk is prepared for Double or Nothing and becoming the next AEW World Champion. Punk has a mixed reaction from Vegas but with plenty of fans chanting his name. Punk says it is safe to say, “the biggest moment of my career happened right here in Las Vegas.”

Punk is grateful to be in the position he is in, loves the fans all over the world, and plans to walk in challenger, and respectfully walk out the champion. Schiavone now goes to Hangman and says Hangman knows just who he is facing, what everyone knows about CM Punk, but this confidence level is off the charts for the challenger. Fans also have a mixed reaction for Hangman, and still plenty chanting, “COWBOY S*IT!” Hangman says he said exactly what he was going to do to Punk, and did he stutter? “There is nothing that you can do to me to take this championship away from me!”

Schiavone says this is a determined champion, but Punk says he isn’t so sure why Hangman takes this personally. Hangman is a champion because he is Hangman Adam Page, the toughest SOB in AEW, and he holds that gold for a reason. But there is a locker room full of people just like Punk waiting for their shot. This is just business. It’s Punk’s shot, it’s not personal. Schiavone says there seems to be respect here, but Hangman takes the mic to say, “I said three weeks ago exactly what I was going to do to you. I said I was going to destroy you. I said I was going to annihilate you, to embarrass you. And I did not mean at Double or Nothing. I meant right now.”

Punk smirks and says, “Okay,” as Hangman says he’s been waiting for this moment not just weeks, but for months. Hangman has imagined himself sitting on the stage, cross-legged, and he’d pull out a lighter to light a pipe bomb and roll it down to Punk’s feet and watch it blow up in Punk’s face! How cathartic it would feel, and how full circle for Punk, right here in Vegas. But now that we’re here… Hangman realizes that he just can’t do it. He can’t. Not because he’s afraid he’d get fired or because he’s afraid of Punk. But when Hangman thought about what he wanted to say, he realized it’s just what Punk would do.

And fighting Punk’s hatred, pettiness and cowardice with more of the same would not be the right thing to do. But Hangman will say face-to-face, man-to-man, how he feels about Punk. “I don’t hate you. I almost pity you. And I have no respect for you and what you’ve done since you’ve gotten here. You want this AEW World Championship? I don’t think you understand what it means to be a champion. After all these years, I don’t think you get it. Because it’s not just about what happens in this ring, it’s about what happens when that red light turns off. What happens when you go back through that curtain. Those small, quiet moments when you think no one’s watching. That’s what makes a champion.”

Hangman says Punk talks a big game about worker’s rights, but has shown the exact opposite since getting here. Hangman loves this place, cares about this place, this is his home! And at Double or Nothing, Hangman will not be defending this title against Punk. For the first time in Hangman’s life, he will be defending ALL ELITE WRESTLING from Punk! Fans fire up hearing that one! Hangman then offers the mic to Schiavone and he takes it back. Punk’s response is he doesn’t get why Hangman’s so angry and taking this personally. “It makes me a little bit confused. You’re kinda talking in circles, it’s a big riddle, but if you’re so upset that I’m here, you’re gonna have to do something about it on Sunday.

“Win, lose or draw, I respect you, Hangman. But remember, those roads you traveled to get here? They were paved by me. This house that you built? It was constructed with lumber from trees that I chopped down. The world you traveled to get here, to create All Elite Wrestling, happened because I gave you the blueprint. You will shake my hand Sunday. Y’know what, Hangman, you’re gonna shake my hand right now.” Punk holds out his hand, fans are a bit torn, and Punk says all this misplaced anger isn’t for Punk, it’s for Hangman himself. Now shake his hand. Hangman says no thanks, so Punk shoves him. And Hangman DECKS Punk!

Fans fire up as Punk is rather shocked by that move. But he also smiles, perhaps getting exactly what he wanted. Hangman scowls and storms off, will he have a better poker face when it’s Double or Nothing?

 

AEW looks closer at the coming TBS Championship rematch.

The Queenslayer made the save for Statlander on Rampage, but Jade Cargill asks, “Anna Who?” The girl she already beat? But Anna says she doesn’t get all the extra BS, like the lights and the pyro and the Baddies Section. Jade already beat dat ass, but Jay thinks she deserves another shot? Jay says after her lose, she learned from some of the best on the roster. Now, she’s ready to beat the best and be TBS Champion. Double or Nothing, Jade says you put all your money on her because she is nothing but money. Will #ThatBitchShow just get even bigger and better? Or will Number 99 be the one in 30-1?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!

William Regal is already on commentary as Jericho leads Parker, Menard, Garcia and Jake Hager out. But Jericho has the music cut so the fans can’t sing Judas. Vegas, you don’t have what it takes to sing that song, so sit down and shut up! No singing for Vegas! The JAS then also goes to commentary, because they’re going to watch this next match.

Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston VS Private Party!

The Maniac & The Mad King team up together again to prepare for Double or Nothing, and enter from the crowd! Bryan Danielson would’ve been here but he got his leg trapped between ramp and ring on Rampage last Friday. But will Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy end up appetizers for the violent appetites of Blackpool Combat Club and their allies? Or will the AFO’s party boys do the dirty work for JAS?

The second Quen & Kassidy make their entrance, there’s a brawl at the ramp! Kingston hammers Kassidy and Moxley has Quen! Moxley bumps Quen off buckles and the bell rings to get this on record! Moxley stomps a mudhole, fans are fired up as Kingston RAMS Kassidy into steel steps! Moxley rains down fists on Quen, then he BITES Quen on the head! Kingston brings out a table?! Moxley whips Quen corner to corner but Quen BOOTS him and QUEBRADAS! Cover, ONE!! Quen gets Moxley up, wrenches, but Moxley rolls and wrenches back to hammerlock and SLEEPER! Tag to Kingston and fans fire up!

Kingston and Moxley mug Quen, Kingston HEADBUTTS Quen, then POWERBOMBS Quen down! Kingston paces, drags Quen back up, and he says he can do what Moxley can do. Kingston underhooks Quen, is that a PARADIGM SHIFT!? Kingston kicks Quen around, fishhooks the face, then drags Quen over to tag Moxley. Moxley whips Kingston in to SPLASH Quen, then Moxley clotheslines! Moxley feeds Quen to an STO! Moxley then drags Quen up, scoops him, but Quen slips off! Quen dodges to PELE! Tag to Kassidy, but Moxley blocks a kick and spins Kassidy, only for the DRAGON WHIP to come around!

Private Party DOUBLE DROPKICK Moxley to a corner, Kassidy runs in to back elbow! Kassidy sets up, Quen hits PARTY IN MOTION! Quen then sets up, Kassidy swaggers and runs, but Moxley CLOBBERS him! Kingston drags Quen out, Moxley gets Kassidy up, X-PLEX! Kingston hits an EXPLODER on Quen! Vegas fires up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Moxley drags Kassidy up, throws him out, and then goes out after him. Moxley RAMS Kassidy into railing, Kingston does the same to Quen on the other side. Kingston brings a chair over, Kassidy throws hands on Moxley, but Kingston stands on Quen. The ref reprimands Kingston, and stops him from using the chair. Kassidy whips but Moxley reverses and Kassidy hits railing hard! Quen kicks Kingston back, but Moxley RAMS Kassidy into steel steps! Kingston RAMS Quen into more railing! Moxley drags Kassidy back up and puts him in the ring. Moxley drags Kassidy around while Kingston CHOKES Quen with camera cords!

Moxley stomps Kassidy, has the legs, TEXAS CLOVERLEAF! Kassidy endures while Kingston brings Quen up. Moxley shifts to an Indian Deathlock STF while Kingston RAMS Quen into more railing! Kassidy endures, Kingston gets a drink of water, then he SPLASHES Quen with the bottle! Kassidy gets free of the STF but swings into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Moxley drags Kassidy back up, waistlocks, GERMAN SUPLEX! Dynamite returns to single picture and Moxley drags Kassidy off the ropes. Moxley half nelsons but Kassidy resists the suplex! Kassidy elbows free, reaches out, but Moxley keeps him from Quen!

Kassidy SCREW HIGH KICKS Moxley, tags Quen, SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE! Then he sucker punches Kingston! Quen runs, flapjack dropkicks Moxley down! Moxley and Kingston regroup. Quen FLIES and takes out Kingston! Kassidy TORNILLOS to take out Moxley! Private Party puts Moxley in and Kassidy hurries, but is put in a corner. Kassidy BOOTS Moxley, leaps, FLYING STUNNER! Quen is up top now, he SHOOTING STAR PRESSES! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives but Quen tags Kassidy. Kassidy springboards in but Moxley dodges. Kassidy comes back, Moxley sends him at Quen, SILLY STRING- NO! Moxley powers out to LARIAT Kassidy!

Kingston rushes in to URAKEN Quen! Kingston has Quen in the STRETCH PLUM, Moxley rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS on Kassidy!! Quen is tapping, Kassidy is a ragdoll! Moxley finishes Kassidy with PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Moxley & Kingston win!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

The JAS rush the ring but Kingston goes at them first! Moxley, too! Hager RAMS Moxley into the apron, Jericho and Menard help out, but here come Santana & Ortiz! And even Bryan with his beat up leg! It’s chaos already as they brawl around ringside! Refs try to stop this but fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Jericho SMACKS Kingston with a chair! Menard and Bryan claw at each other, Jericho gets in the ring and soaks up the heat like his side’s already won. But Bryan gets in the ring to go after him! Jericho kicks the bad leg! Parker helps stomp Bryan, and then the JAS undoes railing so they can leave through the crowd! If this is how it was tonight, how much more insane will it get at Double or Nothing?

 

AEW takes a closer look at the Owen Hart Cup.

Mark Henry says watching all the competition in these tournaments, he is sure Owen would be so proud. Toni Storm says just a few months ago, she thought she was out of wrestling for good. But now she is this close to the finals. Britt Baker vows to defeat Storm and win the tournament at Double or Nothing to prove once again she is the best. Kyle O’Reilly tells Samoa Joe, Double or Nothing will be an Undisputed Elite finals. But Joe ponders the question, “How do you beat someone like Kyle O’Reilly? A submission aficionado, a striking prodigy.” But like all fancy things, you just place it on the anvil and break it. And when Joe is down with Kyle, he’s coming for Adam Cole, BAYBAY.

 

ROH World Tag Team Championships: FTR VS Roppongi Vice!

As if a three year anniversary isn’t big enough, Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood defend one of their two world tag titles against a team that’s been all over the world, but still hungry for more. Will FTR stay #TwoBeltTopGuys? Or will Rocky Romero & Trent Beretta not just be kings but champions of the night?

The Hardy Boyz speak.

Matt tells the Young Bucks that their stories both began with a lot of similarities. They were all born and raised by wholesome, religious parents. They had innocent upbringings where they didn’t smoke or drink. They didn’t even curse! And they all had dreams of becoming pro-wrestlers. But that’s where the parallels end. The Hardys broke into the business in the early 90s, and it was a different industry back then, and a majorly different culture. The brutal, tough roads the Hardys had to walk, the Bucks could never, EVER have survived! The Bucks don’t have the grit, the resilience that these two have. The Hardys no only survived, but they became a revolutionary tag team.

Sure, the Bucks are talented, are Elite, but let’s call it like it is. When the Hardys look at the Bucks, and even when the fans look at the Bucks, all they see are Hardy Boy cosplayers! The reason the Hardys are here in AEW is to cement their legacies as the GOATs of tag team wrestling. Jeff says that was GR-E-E-E-E-EAT. Get it? Goats? But they’re not a team in their prime, they’re a team in their OVERPRIME, and it is overtime! The pressure is on to win. This is a clean slate for Jeff, it is his time approaching the eventual time. But this final run will be the best run!

So at Double or Nothing, the Bucks are just two little stepping stones on the Hardys’ way to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions to complete the collection! And if the Bucks think they’re in their prime, well, they will NEVER be better than the Hardys! The Hardys have been better at every stage of life! Better as babies, as kids, as teenagers, at their peak, and right here and now even as middle-aged and extreme! The Bucks may be elite, but this is the DELETE! They will DELETE the Bucks this Sunday! And there’s a saying: Never meet your heroes, they’ll probably disappoint you. But for the Bucks, it’ll be more like disappointed that they can never beat their heroes!

 

Triple Threat: Jungle Boy VS Ricky Starks VS Swerve Strickland!

Captain Charisma set up a prelude to the AEW World Tag Team Championship Triple Threat at Double or Nothing, because he wants his guy to get back at both the FTW Champion and the man who cost JB that FTW Championship. But will JB just end up getting beat up by his challengers before the title match because of Christian Cage? Or will Jurassic Express have all the momentum going into this Sunday?

The bell rings and fans fire up as these three stare each other down. JB and Swerve then come to an understanding, and they both look at Starks. Starks realizes that and bails out, and says he beat them both already so he doesn’t have to do anything. Fans chant, “Whose House?” “Swerve’s House!” as Swerve offers a handshake to JB. JB accepts, but Starks slides into shove Swerve into JB! Starks rolls Swerve up, JB breaks it as he rolls Starks up! TWO, JB ends up in Swerve’s cradle, TWO! Starks blocks Swerve’s kick and sends it into JB! Starks throws Swerve down, then goes after him, but Swerve moves around to EDDY GORDO RANA!

JB CHOPS Swerve, knuckle locks, and goes up and up, only for Swerve to bring him back down. Swerve blocks a chop and knuckle locks, then turns JB around to double knuckle lock from behind. JB hops up onto Swerve’s shoulders, Swerve throws him at Starks, JB RANAS Starks out of the ring! JB dodges Swerve, dropkicks him then kips up! Fans fire up with JB and he runs at Swerve to CLOBBER him at ropes! JB runs again but Starks trips him up! Starks throws JB out, but JB whips Starks at the corner! Starks slides through the gap and comes back around, to CLOBBER JB! But Swerve runs at the ropes!

Starks ducks but Swerve handsprings over him, only for Starks to shove him into railing! Starks gets up on the apron to strike his pose, then jump down and stomp Swerve! Dynamite goes picture in picture as Starks talks trash on the Swerve fans.

Starks drags Swerve up, whips him hard into railing, then he goes after JB. JB ROCKS and CHOPS Starks but Starks ROCKS and throws JB down! Starks drags JB up and puts him in the ring to then drag him up and around for a suplex. Starks holds JB up, does a hip swivel and then SLAMS JB down! Cover, TWO! Swerve returns but Starks kicks him and throws him out. Starks brings JB up but JB throws body shots! Starks CLUBS JB down, looms over him, and brings him up to knuckle lock and CHOP! Starks goes up slowly, tightrope walks with some swagger, and gives JB some OLD SCHOOL! Starks strikes his pose again as fans rally.

Swerve is on the apron but Starks DECKS him! Starks then drags JB up and CHOPS him. JB CHOPS Starks back! Starks CHOPS again! Starks digs his knee into JB at the corner, the ref counts, Swerve CLOBBERS Starks! Swerve whips Starks to a corner, runs in but Starks back elbows!

Starks elbows Swerve again, JB runs in but Starks HOTSHOTS him! Swerve BOOTS Starks, JB runs and RANAS Swerve off the apron! JB throws Swerve back in, hurries and BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, Starks breaks it! Starks whips JB, JB reverses to wrench and RACK BOMB! Cover, TWO! JB is annoyed, Starks gets away, Swerve ROCKS JB with a forearm! Swerve whips corner to corner hard, and then he brings JB up to the top rope. Swerve climbs up, brings JB up, but JB throws body shots.

Starks returns, he jumps up to join in, hitting each man in the head! But they double pie face Starks down hard! JB then CLUBS Swerve, gets around, SUPER POISON-RANA!! But Swerve lands on his feet!! Vegas loses its mind and JB is confused! JB and Swerve fire up, but Starks BOOTS Swerve down! JB dodges Starks’ clothesline but Starks blocks a kick. Starks ducks JB’s enziguri but Swerve’s SUPERKICK connects! JB aims but Swerve deflects that superkick to throw JB down! Swerve rolls JB’s arm to lift him up, stalling suplex, but Starks SPEARS them down!! JB lands on his feet, though, and SUPERKICKS Starks!

JB runs, but Starks MICHINOKU DRIVERS! Cover, Swerve breaks it!! Fans are thunderous, Starks and Swerve kick each other and Starks stomps! Fans are loving “A E DUB!” as Starks tries to underhook. But Swerve powers out to a fireman’s carry, but Starks fights free of that. Starks waistlocks, Swerve switches, but Starks fights off the half nelson suplex! Swerve CHOPS Starks’ on the back again and again, but Starks arm-drags free! Swerve uppercuts, but Starks reels him in! Swerve breaks free with his leg, but Starks pokes eyes! Starks underhooks and Canadian racks, ROSHAMBEAUX! But JB gets Starks SNARE TRAP!! Starks is caught, reaches out, crawls forward, ROPEBREAK!

But JB drags Starks away! JB resets the SNARE TRAP!! Starks is fading, HOUSE CALL from Swerve!! Swerve wants someone to get up, Starks sits up in a daze. Swerve is up stop, SWERVE STOMPS!! Cover, Swerve wins!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

But “Powerhouse” Hobbs gets in! And he CLOBBERS Swerve! JB jumps on Hobbs for a sleeper but Hobbs throws him off! But Luchasaurus rushes out there and he choke grips Hobbs! Hobbs pries free!? But here comes KEITH LEE! The Limitless One isn’t going to let this keep going without him! Keith, Hobbs and Luchasaurus, the big men of each team, start throwing hands! Hobbs ROCKS Keith, Luchasaurus TAIL WHIPS Hobbs, but Keith GRIZZLY MAGNUMS Luchasaurus! Keith then LIMITLESS TORNILLOS them both down!! Fans lose their minds all over again and Keith regroups with Swerve. Will all of the AEW Tag Division soon bask in their glory?

 

Dan Lambert & the Men of the Year speak.

Lambert says, “Sammy, Tay and Frankie must have a combined IQ of room temperature with the air conditioning on if they thought for one second that busting up Scorpio’s TNT title belt was going to get them the match that they want. Well, somebody please tell these idiots about this new invention we have called the internet and show them how to look up American Top Team. Because maybe then, they would understand that winning every championship there is in combat sports means I probably have every belt maker in the world on speed dial.” That’s right, Lambert ordered Scorpio a brand new belt even before AEW’s favorite couple could tweet out a picture of themselves in the middle of some disgusting act wearing the old one.

So, Scorpio Sky gets a special Friday Night Rampage. The brand new, custom made TNT Championship, handcrafted in Scorpio’s image, will be presented to him and he will love it. Scorpio snaps his fingers and we cut away, but will Sammy, Tay & Frankie just look to break that belt up, too?

 

Schiavone is on stage.

This Sunday, the AEW Women’s World Championship will be defended. Schiavone introduces the champion, Thunder Rosa! La Mera Mera makes her way out, and Schiavone asks her about Deeb’s challenge. Rosa wants us to see her face. It has no face paint! This is the real Rosa, the face of someone who has worked and earned everything she has, and is grateful for being champion. That has never complained, either. Because that is what champions do. Deeb, “mi reina,” you are NOT a champion. Fans cheer Rosa on, and Rosa tells Deeb that she complains, is a little petty.

Rosa says Deeb points fingers at people and companies, pinning things on her past, with her questionable changes. Maybe Deeb should look in a mirror and blame herself. Rosa’s face used to look up to Deeb, but no more! And on Sunday, Deeb won’t see this face. On Sunday, the war paint is on. On Sunday, the warrior inside Rosa takes over! On Sunday, La Mera Mera will teach Deeb a lesson in respect for disrespecting Schiavone, for disrespecting Rosa’s mentor, Dustin Rhodes, for disrespecting the fans, and especially for disrespecting Rosa, the AEW Women’s World Champion!! And y’know what? Deeb will be very scared, because Rosa will haunt her forever!

 

AEW returns as Schiavone interviews Red Velvet backstage.

A tremendous match between The Chef and Kris Statlander in the Owen Hart Cup, but Statlander won. Velvet is surely upset. No sh*t, Schiavone. Velvet says she should have won that match, and she should be facing Ruby Soho. But speaking of, Soho walks in because she heard her name. Does Velvet have something to say to her? Yes, actually. If Soho needs to know how to beat Statlander, Velvet’s got this notebook right here. Statlander’s knee is messed up, and she has a bad shoulder, too.

Velvet leaves and Soho says she can admit, when she faced Statlander last time, Soho won by the skin of her teeth. But in the next round of the Owen Hart Cup, Soho knows she’s not facing the same Statlander. This notebook is useless, so Soho throws it away. Soho will keep what Velvet said in mind, though. Will the Runaway be able to get past whatever this new form the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has taken and head for Double or Nothing? And speaking of…

 

Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Opening Round: Britt Baker VS Toni Storm!

The Doctor made Maki Itoh tap out while the Lightning From Down Under struck a Hayter. Only one moves on to Double or Nothing and the finals, who wins the first of tonight’s “double main event?”

In a surprising move, Britt tells Rebel and Jamie Hayter that she’ll be fine without them. They head back to the back, this will truly be 1v1, just as Storm wanted it. The bell rings and Vegas rallies for “D M D!” Britt and Storm circle, tie up, and go around. Storm clamps onto the arm, wrenches, but Britt reaches for ropes. Storm keeps her away from ropes, but Britt wrenches back. Britt hammerlocks, spins Storm and snapmares but Storm wrenches right back.

Britt keeps her shoulder sup, headscissors, but Storm pops free. Storm and Britt tie up again, Britt hits a headlock takeover. Storm headscissors and she keeps Britt down. Britt gets frustrated but endures as Toni pushes up for more pressure. Britt moves around, Storm pushes up again, but Britt kicks her way to the ROPEBREAK. Fans rally and duel as Storm lets off and waits on Britt. Britt gets up, kicks Storm low, but Storm rushes in. Britt sidesteps but Storm redirects herself to avoid the table top, and she basement dropkicks Britt down! Britt bails out but Storm pursues, and she ROCKS Britt with a forearm!

Storm brings Britt around and POSTS her! The ring count climbs, Storm ROCKS Britt with an uppercut. Storm gets in the ring to refresh the count, then she uppercuts Britt again.

Fans rally up, Britt pulls Storm’s hair and talks more trash, but Storm endures. Storm fights up, throws body shots, and gets free! Britt ROCKS Storm, but Storm ROCKS Britt! Dynamite returns to single picture as the forearms fly back and forth! Storm gets the edge, but Britt dodges to SUPERKICK! Storm staggers, Britt goes up the corner, and Britt leaps for PITT- NO! Storm blocks the sunrise to go up and TORNADO DDT!

Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Semifinals: Samoa Joe VS Kyle O’Reilly!

The Panama City Playboy waits the winner of this at Double or Nothing, and he’s hoping for an Undisputed Finals! Will #KillerKyle keep that dream alive? Or will the Samoan Submission Machine make sure the Cup stays far out of their reach?

The bell rings and the two circle. Kyle and Joe test the waters with kicks, fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” and Joe withstands Kyle’s quick flurry! Joe backs Kyle down with his own kicks and knees, and even adds elbows and a KICK! Kyle staggers but he steadies himself and the two reset. Kyle shoots in, Joe switches, Kyle flips it to a facelock. They move around, Joe wants a leg now, and he gets Kyle down! Kyle uses a leg guard and they end up in ropes, Joe lets off quickly. Fans fire up for the opening exchange and the two reset again. They knuckle lock, Kyle gets the arm and wrenches it. Joe wants the sleeper!

Kyle trips Joe, Joe kicks Kyle away and avoids the Penalty Kick to CHOP Kyle off his feet! Fans are stinging from that one, and they chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” Kyle gets up, Joe JABS, JABS, then CHOPS Kyle in the corner. Joe brings Kyle around but Kyle wants that bad arm! Joe uses the good arm to scoop and SLAM Kyle! Kyle sits up and gasps, Joe CHOPS him on the shoulder, then PENALTY KICKS and ELBOW DROPS! Fans fire up and Joe covers, TWO! Joe CLUBS Kyle, CHOPS him, CHOPS again, then HEADBUTTS!

Kyle gets the bad arm, hammerlocks, and he rains down elbows and knees! Kyle floats over to do the same to the other side, then he runs for a SLIDING KNEE! Joe writhes, Kyle KICKS the bad arm! And again! Joe staggers but Kyle brings him around to clinch and fire off more knees! Kyle runs but Joe CLOBBERS him! Fans fire up and Kyle flounders to the apron. Joe storms over, but Kyle gets the leg! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Kyle then goes up the corner, FLYING KNEE to the bad arm! Cover, TWO!

But into an ARMBAR! Joe clasps hands, or rather holds his own wrist! Kyle wants the arm but Joe gets the ROPEBREAK! Kyle holds until 4 and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Kyle KICKS Joe against the ropes, then KICKS him again. Joe bails out of the ring, Kyle goes out after him, and Kyle wrenches the bad arm for a double wristlock. Kyle then hammerlocks the arm, makes Joe take a seat and he KICKS away on Joe by the barriers! Kyle ROCKS Joe, then gets some space. Kyle runs back in, but Joe DECKS him with a forearm!

But Kyle has the bad arm! Joe is still locking it in with the one good arm! Kyle sputters, and he’s out! JOE WINS!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (advances to the finals)

Even with one good arm, the ROH World Television Champion pulls off the victory! But here comes Adam Cole, BAYBAY! Cole and Joe have never had a match against each other before, and now they will in a historic finals match at Double or Nothing! Who will win the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Dynamite, especially as a go-home for Double or Nothing. For one, opening with the Steel Cage was an awesome move. I should’ve figured MJF would go that far to try and screw Wardlow over, but it was awesome how Wardlow turned it around on MJF. That was one serious headshot and MJF sold it perfectly. Wardlow of course wins, and of course we’re now getting MJF VS Wardlow at Double or Nothing, and who knows how that goes. There is a very good chance MJF wins, though, with the dirtiest of ways to win, but I bet Vegas would go nuts if Wardlow won. Also great to see that I called the TNT Championship was being remodeled for Scorpio, I bet that thing will look awesome.

Great promo from the JAS, and wow, Jericho with another fireball just because that staffer wore a Moxley shirt. If this were sports entertainment, they would’ve mentioned Jericho getting fined a lot of money. Regal and Jericho were very good on commentary during Moxley & Kingston VS Private Party, which was a lot of fun and a pretty good sampler of what Anarchy in the Arena will look like. I don’t want it to be so chaotic because that’ll be hard for everyone to keep up with all the action, but it will surely be just brawling all over ringside and even in the ring, and who knows what we’ll see these teams do to each other.

Good promo vignette from Jade and Jay to hype up the rematch, but again, because it’s Jay again, I feel like Jade’s got this one. I did like that Velvet, though Heel, gave Ruby, a Face, advice on how to beat Statlander since Velvet is now Statlander’s enemy. Ruby had a good Face response, and Ruby VS Statlander on Rampage is going to be a great match. Great promo from the Hardys to hype up their match with the Bucks, no idea who wins that match, but I definitely see the winner going after the AEW World Tag titles. And while Rosa had a very good promo, they started her music a little early. Probably just them misreading her promo, but it also felt like they were playing her off, which is a bit rude to do to your AEW Women’s World Champion. But that aside, Rosa is surely retaining against Deeb.

Great segment from Hangman and Punk, and though Hangman purposefully danced around the issue, I’m pretty sure what he was getting at is Punk coming in and throwing off all the plans for the AEW originals, Hangman himself included. Punk also had a good counter saying he was the foundation of what AEW is even about. That match is going to be amazing, Hangman knocking Punk down technically means Punk is standing tall because he got in Hangman’s head. I would think Hangman retains the title and that strengthens his reign, probably so he’ll be real strong for Kenny Omega’s eventual return.

The ROH World Tag Team Championship match was great stuff, and I even liked that it ended up like it did because The United Empire shows up to further build towards Forbidden Door. FTR wants more tag titles, RPG Vice called out a lot of champions, and now it seems the Empire figures they’ll grab up titles, we could get a huge tag title match with this feud. The Triple Threat of JB, Starks and Swerve was great stuff, and between Swerve winning the match and Keith running off the other heavies, I have a feeling Keith & Swerve end up losing somehow. That might mean Jurassic Express finds a way to retain, maybe Team Taz wins, but who knows.

Great “double main event” from the Owen Hart Cup Semifinals, and we even got a good promo vignette to hype the matches up. Britt VS Storm was of course still affected by Hayter showing up, but I almost thought Hayter was going to accidently cost Britt. But no, Britt still wins, as expected, and she is paralleling Cole as they’re both finalists. Joe VS Kyle was awesome stuff, and especially with Joe selling the arm damage from last week. Joe winning was great, though, and that gives us a classic Face VS Heel showdown. I suppose it would be too early for Cole VS Kyle, possible dysfunction between them in AEW after doing that story in NXT, and Cole VS Joe will still be awesome. But with Lethal, Sonjay & Singh lurking, I bet Joe loses because of them and Cole wins, he and Britt will be an Owen Hart Cup winner power couple.

My Score: 8.9/10

A good line-up of nine, and great to see Leva Bates back in action. Also nice to see the team formerly known as 2point0 having a tag match, that’ll help get them going in the tag division while also building towards the “Anarchy in the Arena” at Double or Nothing. And RPG Vice will definitely get a win before their match on Dynamite.
