AEW opens with Cody in the ring.

“I have never thought of my world as small before.” But recent world events put things in perspective. It has also clarified for Cody how important the service they provide is. Cody sees the irony in what he asks. Cody is about to ask some of the best athletes in the world to discard their petty differences and stand together. This is March 18, 2020, we as human beings need to stand together. For many, that means at a distance. No crowd is assembled at Daily’s Place as Cody says “We have to be informed. We have to be held responsible by health and science. But there is a profound difference in that versus living in a prison of fear.” Cody refuses to live in fear, because that is not living. Hopefully everyone watching this around the world feels the same way.

Cody now addresses Matt Jackson because he knows Matt is watching. Second to Tony Khan, Matt is probably the one most responsible for AEW existing. With brother Nick, Matt is a tag team specialist and a master of the craft. But that doesn’t mean anything is owed to Matt. If anything, that means Matt must work even harder. Matt’s anger towards Hangman Page is misplaced. Cody doesn’t need that and Matt doesn’t want that. Matt is the older brother, and he needs to carry Nick’s heart into this match so that they can win Blood & Guts. And speaking of Hangman, Cody says he is tired of singing Hangman’s well-deserved praises, such as his junior heavyweight agility and full heavyweight strength.

Cody admits he picked Hangman for first AEW World Champion, and yet was wrong. Chris Jericho was first, and Jericho even beat Cody. But Cody wants Hangman to get over himself. Hangman doesn’t want to be “that one guy in the Elite” anymore? Then don’t! Be the difference maker in The Elite! Be the reason The Elite wins Blood & Guts! But then lastly, the most unique friendship in wrestling, Kenny Omega. Cleaner and American Nightmare haven’t always gotten along, but that’s fine. They could argue who is 1A and 1B until they’re blue in the face and they both end up second place to someone else. They don’t want to be bridesmaids to another but that’s fine! This isn’t a wedding! This is blood, guts and violence! It will take years off of careers, and the Elite needs them both.

But Cody needs the real Omega. Cody needs the man who stood in front of 499 others and declared HE is the best! We need the Best Bout Machine! “In short, I need The Elite to be elite.” Matt Jackson and Kenny Omega walk out to the ring now and join Cody between the ropes. Omega takes the mic to say that normally it’s about speaking to an arena full of people, but now it’s just friends talking to friends. Omega also admits he and Cody haven’t always seen eye to eye. There were times they were at each other’s throats. Yet here we are. The world is falling apart, everything they built could fall apart at a moment’s notice. Will Dynamite even be allowed to run next week?

But if it’s up to Omega, Omega wants to go out the way they came in: as The Elite. Matt takes the mic and says he loves the call to action. And he agrees with Omega, too. But look at the ring. It’s just the three of them. We saw what The Inner Circle did to Nick, he isn’t even cleared to fly! Nick and therefore The Young Bucks as a duo are out indefinitely. And again, it’s just the three of them. Where is Hangman? A good question, even for Omega, his tag team partner.

But the other half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions finally appears. Matt admits things have been “strange” between them all. No one is saying this can be fixed in one night or even in a few weeks. But Matt asks as one man to another, and the team is asking him: Will Hangman stand with The Elite? Hangman sips his beer, then gives a raise of the glass and a nod. They’ll take that as a yes as Hangman heads to the back.

Omega takes the mic back, admits he’s used to speaking to crowds but knows he’s speaking directly to the people watching at home. “It’s hard to feel your energy, but we know you’re out there.” AEW wants the very best for everyone, because all they can give is their best. The world goes on, everyone needs positivity right now, so all AEW can do is give the best they can give right here and now. “So goddammit, hit the lights, hit the pyro, and let’s start DYNAMITE!”

MJF made it to AEW Dynamite.

Tony Schiavone asks what he’s here for. Wow, what a hard hitting question! But MJF says it is because he doesn’t have to. MJF saw the winner’s purse for tonight’s special episode, but it’s not enough for him. MJF is resting his undefeated body to let the “under card talent” get their TV time. He’ll be an audience of one while making real money. Right, Spears? Wait, Shawn Spears is here? And are they gambling on the matches? What did you say, Tony? You better watch your mouth! Does Tony realize the weight of the accusation he just made?! HOW DARE YOU!! But also, does he want in or what? Tony cues Brandi Rhodes as ring announcer before possibly asking about the odds.


The Lucha Brothers VS Best Friends w/ Orange Cassidy!

The Death Triangle is incomplete without The Bastard, but it can’t be helped given global circumstances. Will Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix still hold their own against Trent and Chuckie T 2v2?

To keep things fair and square, Cassidy goes to commentary to sit with Excalibur, Tazz and good ol’ JR. Y’know, whatever. The teams sort out and MJF shouts in support of Fenix and Pentagon. He’s got “mucho dinero” riding on this one. Fenix eggs Trent on and that is the two we start with. Trent and Fenix circle and tie up. They go around as MJF chants obnoxiously loud, and Trent puts Fenix in the corner. The ref counts and Trent backs off. Fenix and Trent circle and tie up again. They go around and Fenix puts Trent in the corner. The ref has Fenix give a break, but then Fenix tries a mule kick. Trent blocks and CHOPS! Fenix CHOPS back!

Trent and Fenix start throwing big forearms! Fenix back kicks, front kicks and ROCKS Trent with a right. The brothers shout “CERO MIEDO!” and Fenix goes after Trent with uppercuts. Fenix CHOPS then speeds things up. Trent dodges to hit a point-blank Meteora! Trent drags Fenix up to snapmare then KICK him in the back! Tag to Chuck Taylor and Best Friends double whip. They double shoulder Fenix down then double gun at Pentagon. Chuckie T drags Fenix up and MJF mocks Chuckie’s physique. It seems MJF, Shawn Spears and company are joined by Jake the Snake and his client, Lance “Murderhawk” Archer.

Back in the ring, Chuckie hits a big back suplex then covers, TWO! Chuckie clubs Fenix down and tags in Trent. Cassidy is either very relaxed or napping on commentary now. Best Friends double suplex Fenix up and hold him up, and then bring him down hard! Cover, TWO! Trent keeps his cool as Colt Cabana, Sonny Kiss and others are cheering on the other side. Trent brings Fenix up to whip and run over with a back elbow! Fenix flounders but Trent keeps on him with stomps. Tag to Chuckie T and he drags Fenix up. Chuckie whips Fenix to dropkick Fenix down hard! Cover, TWO!! Chuckie drags Fenix away from Pentagon and back to tag Trent.

Trent climbs up and Chuckie holds Fenix in place for the falling double ax handles. Trent brings Fenix up but Fenix fights back with body shots, a stomp, an eye poke and a CHOP! Fenix CHOPS and CHOPS and Question Mark kicks Trent down! He clubs and whips Trent but Trent reverses. Pentagon tags in, Fenix dodges Trent to hit Chuckie, and Pentagon SUPERKICKS Trent! Fenix mule kicks Trent, then “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Pentagon covers, TWO! Pentagon argues with the ref but the count is the count. MJF is on the Cero Miedo bandwagon as Pentagon KICKS Trent’s leg! Pentagon stalks Trent to ropes to KICK him down!

Pentagon drags Trent up while MJF and Spears share a bottle of wine. The ref reprimands Fenix as he gets a cheap shot in, but Pentagon snapmares Trent, to BITE his ear! The ref reprimand again but MJF points out the five count. Pentagon tags Fenix and the brothers mug Trent. They double whip and hit a body shot, kick and leg sweep! The Lucha Brothers combine for a wheelbarrow spinning splash! Fenix dropkicks Chuckie down HARD! Orange Cassidy perks up and stares down at Fenix, but Trent slips out to clobber Pentagon in the distraction! But Fenix FLIES out onto Trent! Chuckie comes around to LARIAT Fenix! All four men are down in front of Cabana, SCU and Joey Janela while AEW goes picture in picture.

Pentagon gets up but Chuckie attacks him at the railing. Chuckie punches and CHOPS Pentagon then throws him into railing around the way. The ref reprimands him but Chuckie just waves to the cameras. Best Friends mug Pentagon but Fenix comes over to attack. Chuckie hits back and then throws Fenix into a post. Chuck throws Fenix into the apron while Trent clobbers Pentagon. Chuckie bites Fenix’s mask as strange payback for Pentagon biting Trent. But speaking of, Pentagon reverses a whip to send Trent HARD into railing, moving it into the front row! It’s actually very fortunate there are no fans here tonight.

Chuckie T finally puts Fenix in but he realizes what happened to Trent. Cabana wants to check on Trent but Pentagon scares him off. Pentagon throws Trent into a post while Fenix fights Chuckie T back. Fenix throws Chuckie T out, keeps the count fresh, then ROUNDHOUSES Chuckie down! Fenix taunts SCU as he clubs Chuckie down. Pentagon puts Trent in the ring and Fenix joins him. Fenix wraps Trent up in a chinlock but Trent endures. Cabana and friends rally up for Trent but Fenix traps his arms with his legs, then cranks Trent’s foot in a toehold. Trent refuses to quit so Fenix JUMPS for a BIG leg drop! Cover, TWO!

AEW returns to single picture as Trent and Fenix CHOP each other. Fenix kicks Trent’s leg then tags in Pentagon. Pentagon school boys and SUPERKICKS Trent down! Cover, TWO! Pentagon still argues the count but Cassidy went back to taking a nap. Trent throws body shots and forearms on Pentagon, but Pentagon KICKS Trent in the leg! Pentagon dares Trent to hit back and Trent throws another big forearm. Pentagon KICKS Trent’s leg again, then fish hooks him at the ropes. The ref reprimands but Pentagon whips Trent away. Trent blocks the pump handle to arm-drag Pentagon away. Pentagon runs in but only gets buckles, and then Trent’s TORNADO DDT!

Both men crawl as the other wrestlers rally up. Hot tags to Chuckie and Fenix! The Kentucky Gentleman rallies with lariats, then catches Fenix’s leap into a BACKBREAKER! Pentagon gets in and KICKS Chuck’s leg. Pentagon whips but Chuckie comes back with a KNEE! Chuckie scoops Fenix for the LONG DART CUTTER! Best Friends go corner to corner and want to hug, but given current circumstances, keep it to elbow bumps. Pentagon and Fenix DOUBLE SUPERKICK the Best Friends! Pentagon goes out to fetch Chuckie and brings him to the concrete! But Cassidy gets off commentary to “hurry” over! Fenix and Pentagon see him coming, and dare him to do something. Chuckie shoves them both off the stage!

Trent brings Fenix and Pentagon up and lines them up, for Cassidy’s NO HANDS SENTON! Trent puts Pentagon back in and Chuckie gives him AWFUL WAFFLE!! Cover, TWO!! Pentagon still lives but Chuckie tags in Trent. Best Friends bring Pentagon up and around, but Fenix SUPERKICKS Trent into a DESTROYER! Fenix keeps Chuck stuck up top while Pentagon has the cover, TWO!! Trent survives so Fenix head sup top to club Chuckie. Chuckie clubs back and the ref is busy with them, so Pentagon LOW BLOWS Trent! Pentagon enziguris Chuckie then sets Trent up! DOUBLE STOMP PACKAGE DRIVER! Cover, Lucha Brothers win!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

MJF wins, too! Big money from Spears, that is. But with this huge win, will Lucha Brothers get back in the AEW World Tag title scene?


Tony Schiavone interviews Best Friends on stage.

Chuck and Trent join The Sloth, and says Death Triangle is making a big impact in AEW already. Chuckie says they’re “a bunch of chumps.” They wanna kick Trent in the dick while the ref’s back is turned? Maybe next time there doesn’t need to be a ref, or even a ring! How about a Street Fight?! Like, in the actual street! Or no, a parking lot! A Parking Lot Brawl for next week’s Blood & Guts Dynamite!! Will the Death Triangle have the balls to accept that challenge?


Fatal 4 Way: Hikaru Shida VS Riho VS Kris Statlander VS Penelope Ford!

The Superbad Girl joins the contender conversation with the Stardom Samurai, the Wrestling Idol and the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien because she got a Superbad upset victory over Riho on AEW Dark! Will she shock the world again when she beats three of the best all at once? Or will another woman earn a second shot at the Native Beast?

AEW goes picture in picture while the entrances are made. It’s hard to tell who MJF and Spears are putting their money on this way, but they’ll be audible again soon enough. AEW returns to single picture with the bell, and Penelope goes right at Riho! It seems nothing is settled between these two, and both Shida and Kris give them room. Penelope rakes Riho’s eyes! And then throws her out of the ring! So now she’s alone with Shida and Kris, and they both kick Penelope low! Shida and Kris double suplex but Penelope fights out to fight back! Penelope throws forearms but Shida blocks and Kris ROCKS Penelope with a right! Kris and Shida both run but Kip trips them both! The ref sees the Superbad Boy drag them both out, but MJF defends Kip’s innocence.

Kris ROCKS Kip then Shida DECKS him! MJF is mad at the ref for that one, but Penelope gets on the apron. Penelope LEAPS but both Kris and Shida get clear. They double kick Penelope again, then bring her over. But Riho’s up top and LEAPS onto them all! All four women are down and it sounds like Spears’s money is on Riho. Riho gets up and puts Penelope in the ring. Kip saves his Superbad Girl but Riho is attacked by Kris and Shida. Shida and Kris double whip but Riho handsprings through the double clothesline! Riho dropkicks Shida down then dodges Kris to tilt-o-whirl. But Kris blocks that for a BACKBREAKER! MJF says Kris still sucks.

Kris dead lifts Riho and puts her in the middle rope. Shida comes over and Kris wants to be her weapon. Shida suplexes Kris into Riho! But then Shida rolls up Kris, TWO! Shida drags Riho up top but Kris goes after Shida! Kris has Shdia up but Shida fights out of the bomb. Shida waistlocks, Kris bucks her off, and Kris elbows Shida away. Kris runs but Shida dodges to eye poke! And inside cradle, TWO! Kris LARIATS Shdia down! Shida bails out but Penelope FLIES back in, with a Superbad and super sloppy huricanrana. Kris still tumbles away but Riho leaps to give Kris a huricanrana! And then Shida missile dropkicks Kris out!

Shida goes after Riho but Riho blocks the suplex. Penelope joins in but Shida fights her off. Shida has both women for a double! But Penelope and Riho fight it off to double suplex Shida instead! Riho and Penelope glare at each other, and start pushing. The forearms start flying and Riho gets an edge! Riho runs and dropkicks Kip! SCU laughs at Kip but Penelope attacks Riho. Penelope puts Riho in the corner then handsprings in, for a big back elbow! Penelope fireman’s carries Rho but Riho fights it off! Riho sunset flips but Kip helps Penelope stay up! The ref gets Kip to let go and Penelope jumps, but Riho gets clear of the knee drop! Riho runs to use Penelope as a step stool, POETRY IN MOTION for Kip!

Riho goes back after Penelope with the full nelson. Penelope resists and fights free. Shida returns but Penelope moves, Shida KNEES Riho! Penelope BOOTS Shida but covers Riho, only for Kris to break the pin! Shida enziguris Kris then runs, into a ROUNDHOUSE! Kris has Shida up, GOURD BUSTER! Riho wheelbarrows but Kris blocks to an Electric Chair! Kris SLAMS Riho down onto Shida! Penelope throws body shots on Kris and runs, springboards back and POISON-RANAS Kris!! Everyone loses their minds over that, but Shida reels Penelope in. Penelope fights free, handsprings but into a dropkick! Shida drags Penelope up, FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Shida runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, Shdia wins!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The #1 contender is STILL the #1 contender! Will the Samurai of Stardom have that rematch with Nyla Rose in the near future?


Tony Schiavone interviews Colt Cabana at ringside.

Like a lot of the other AEW talent here tonight, Cabana is watching all the action. Cabana is already 2-0 and is “scouting” the competition. Cabana has great seats, too. That was a great women’s match and the AEW Women’s Division is awesome. Penelope Ford may have lost but she was great. She’d be much better if she didn’t have her scheming boyfriend nearby. Kip hears this and takes offense. Kip asks Cabana if he wants to go. They start shoving, and Cabana SLAPS Kip! Kip is aghast as he storms off with Penelope. Will Boom Boom be 3-0 after taking on the Superbad Boy?


AEW shares Tony Schiavone’s interview with Jon Moxley.

Earlier today, as the AEW World Champion was heading for his Ford GT, Tony asks about Moxley not being medically cleared given what the Inner Circle did to him. Moxley says being on the “Do Not Enter List” is stupid. He goes where he wants to go, when he wants to. What does “medically cleared” even mean to a guy who has never been cleared? But Moxley is going to keep himself out of trouble and go for a ride to blow off some steam. But Moxley also promises that wherever the Inner Circle goes, Moxley will be there waiting. He will be in their blind spot. When Blood & Guts happens, Moxley won’t miss the party. “Not for the world.”


Jurassic Express VS The Butcher & The Blade!

Similar to Death Triangle being without PAC, Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus are without Marko Stunt but MJF’s mercenaries are without Allie Bunny. But that just means it’ll be a fair 2v2. Will JB and Saurus be able to make big moves against the sadistic Braxton Sutter and Andy Williams? Especially with MJF giving them big money motivations tonight…

The teams sort out and Jungle Boy Jack Perry starts against The Blade. Blade and JB tie up and Blade pulls hair. He puts JB in the corner but lets up to stomp! MJF mocks JB as “looks like Tarzan but wrestles like Jane!” The ref reprimands Blade but he CHOPS JB! Blade whips JB but JB reverses to arm-drag and roll over to a ghost pin! TWO, and JB handsprings up. JB headlock but Blade powers out. Things speed up and JB springboards to arm-drag Blade away! JB dodges and ducks but gets the kitchen sink knee! Blade seethes as he stalks JB. Blade drags JB up and reels him in but jB fights with body shots. JB rolls Blade up and powers him tot he corner. Saurus tags in and CHOPS Blade!

Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy give kick after kick to Blade, then combine with a wheelbarrow for JB to hit a swinging complete shot! Saurus covers, TWO! Luchasaurus brings Blade up to wrench but Blade throws forearms. Saurus knees back and puts Blade in the corner. JB tags in and whips Blade to Saurus’s BOOT! JB adds the imploding senton but Blade bails out. Blade, Butcher and bank roller regroup while JB builds speed, but he sees they’re all gathered together. So JB slingshots out! The mercs catch the plancha to SWING JB into railing! Someone’s beer spills and MJF rubs it in. Saurus hurries over to reinforce JB but the ref tells everyone to get this back in the ring.

Blade drags JB up and brings him away for both him and Butcher to snake eyes on the apron! Blade puts JB back in and wrenches. Butcher tags in and they double headbutt JB down. Butcher stomps a mudhole in but the ref counts. The mercenary backs off to stand JB up for a CHOP! Butcher goes after JB at the ropes and CHOPS again! He won’t let up as he bumps JB off buckles. MJF mocks JB’s pain while Butcher scrapes JB’s face on rope! The ref reprimands but Blade tags in. JB starts giving CHOPS back, but Butcher’s CHOP knocks him over. Blade drags JB up to whip and lariat him down! Cover, TWO! Blade brings JB up to tag Butcher in, for a leg drop sidewalk slam! AEW goes picture in picture as Butcher covers, TWO!

Butcher keeps on JB with a whip into the open corner and hard! He drags JB up but JB fights back with body shots. Butcher knees JB down then whips him into the corner. Tag to Blade and the mercs mug JB with CHOPS! Blade snapmares JB to then clamp on a chinlock. He digs his knee into JB but JB endures. JB fights his way up and out, then runs to sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Blade LARIATS JB down! Tag to Butcher and the mercs drag JB up to double whip again. They double shoulder JB down then Butcher drops a big knee! Butcher goes after JB’s legs with stomps, then drags JB up to CHOP again! JB throws haymakers back, then fires up with chops and kicks and punches! Butcher headbutts JB down and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Blade has JB in the corner. Blade rakes JB’s eyes then stomps a mudhole in. He snapmares as Joey Janela does the Tarzan yell, not that JB has ever done one of his own. Blade pulls JB around by his hair and clubs him down. Blade whips JB and tilt-o-whirls to a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Blade looms over JB and drags him up for a back suplex. JB lands on his feet to wheelbarrow but Blade shoves him away. JB comes back with a LARIAT! Both men are down and the other wrestlers rally! JB crawls but Blade elbow drops him back down! Blade drags JB away and throws him out. Butcher goes after JB and RAMS him into the apron!

Butcher puts JB in the ring for Blade to cover, TWO! Blade grows annoyed and drags him up to whip into the corner. JB elbows Blade away then fights Butcher off. JB hops up but Butcher anchors JB’s leg. Blade runs over but JB keeps fighting them off! JB sends Blade down then boots Butcher, before leaping over Blade to tag in Lucahasaurus! MJF freaks out as Saurus LARIATS Blade and BOOTS Butcher! Luchasaurus kicks and kicks and KICKS Blade down! Then DINO-SAULTS Butcher down! Luchasaurus aims at Blade before he somersault SPIKE-RANAS Blade! And into a SPINNING BUZZSAW! Saurus roars as he fireman’s carries Blade, “YOU! ARE! EXTINCT!” DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! Cover, but Butcher breaks it!

JB returns and rocks Butcher with forearms! Butcher shoves, pops JB WAY up, but JB gets Blade for a sunset flip into ropes! Both JB and Blade tumble out hard, and now Luchasaurus meets Butcherzilla! They throw forearms back and forth, and at the same time! Butcher ROCKS and CHOPS Saurus then clubs away over and over. The ref reprimands, he’s not even the legal man! Butcher runs, Saurus follows, and Saurus hits a T-REX CALF KICK! Saurus dares Butcher to stand, and he choke grips. Blade attacks and now the mercs have the advantage.

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall

Another big win for a boy and his dinosaur! Will Jurassic Express hop on the fast track to the AEW World Tag Team Championships?


The Dark Order is here!

Christopher Daniels and Evil Uno are yet to have their 1v1 match but we’ve been waiting for weeks on the promise of The Exalted One! Uno and Stu Grayson walk out to the ring, a mic in Uno’s hand. “Now I hope that the AEW production team is as smart as I believe they are, and they focus on my eyes so that I may talk directly to my people.” To all the members of The Dark Order around the world, The Exalted One is nigh! And when he arrives, he shall breathe new life into the Dark Order. Brothers Stu, Alex Reynolds and John Silver have all done Uno’s bidding to prepare for this “wonderful night.” All eyes shall open and see what Uno already sees. Uno has promised the arrival of the Exalted One, and he never lies, because Uno cares about us.

Together, the Dark Order shall be one! “We Are One!” The Exalted One is near! He’s near! He, is- Daniels interrupts! He and Frankie Kazarian go to ringside to tell Uno to “Please, in the name of all that is holy,” stop running your mouths! They’re going on three months straight! Uno goes on and on with these lies! Daniels is sick of it! Daniels says Uno promised to make everyone’s lives better. Uno didn’t make Reynolds’s life better! Uno didn’t make John Silver’s life better! The Dark Order hasn’t made the lives “of any of these jackasses who were your masks” any better! All the Dark Order does is waste time, “and we’re sick of it!” Because the biggest lie of all is the Exalted One’s existence! It’s just Uno and Grayson!

But wait! What is this music? “I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am The Exalted One of the Dark Order. In a very short time, you will be up to speed as to who I am.” But first, the new rule of the Dark Order goes like this: “We do what we want, when we want.” If the Exalted One wants something, he takes it. To put it a way the stupid ones can understand, “If we come and knock on your door, you open that door and you let the Dark Order in.” Because if you don’t, the Exalted One will kick the door down to lead his people through it. If you still don’t get that, the Exalted One will show his face. It’s Luke Harp- er, uh, Brodie Lee!!

To make it more personal, “Mr. Christopher Daniels,” you thought you were safe. But the word is out! Everyone is NOT safe! All of Daniels’ jokes, all his games, did he think he’d get away with it? Lee tells Daniels that he is not the first “out of touch old man” who didn’t believe in him. But Lee makes sure Daniels is the last. So Lee formally introduces himself to us. He is Brodie Lee, The Exalted One. And then he’s IN THE RING!? And BOOTS Daniels down! Uno and Grayson attack Kaz while Lee looms over Daniels. He brings Daniels up in a familiar hold, but it’s not Sister Abigail or Blade Runner, it’s to feed the DISCUS LARIAT! The Dark Order stands tall and is even stronger! “WE ARE ONE!” But will AEW soon belong in entirety to the Dark Order?


Tony Schiavone interviews Jake the Snake and Lance Archer ringside.

The Murderhawk is now part of AEW, but what is his purpose here? The Snake says Archer isn’t here to talk. Cody Rhodes was given his due when Jake Roberts threw the gauntlet down. But what have they gotten in return? NOTHING! Does Cody realize he should pay attention to a Hall of Famer when he’s talking? They’re not playing games, Cody. Jake told him what they want. It is one thing to avoid them and stay out of harm’s way. But to ignore them is like spitting in their faces! They will not stand for that. Jake heard The Elite “bitching” like a bunch of girls worried about who’s taking them to the prom. “LOOK AT US!” Shut Jake up if you can, but you won’t.

So Cody, it’s time to stand up and be a man. Jake and Archer are here for a reason. It wasn’t going to be something that turns personal. But it will, and it has. Cody had his chance to meet them straight on. Now, they will get his attention. Will Cody be able to focus on The Inner Circle knowing #EverybodyDies?


AEW takes a closer look at Lance Archer.

A “public workout” in a ring int he middle of the woods has a few dozen rednecks (for lack of a better term) all riled up. A ring card girl in Daisy Dukes and flip-flops signals the start of the next round. The ring leader welcomes them all to the “Murderhawk Mansion” as Archer and Jake head to the ring. Who among the men ringside is man enough to challenge Archer? Who is ready to #TryOrDie? Archer storms his way into the ring and welcomes his first challenger. The man who barely comes up to Archer’s armpits throws a forearm, to get DECKED! Archer CHOPS the man down then Choke Slams him OUT of the ring and onto more challengers!

Another man steps up, only to get a BOOT! And a CHOP! And the BLACK OUT BOMB! Archer shouts “Everybody dies!” as he uses the EBD Claw to smother the man into the mat! The ring card girl signals round 4, as a meaty man with a mullet throws forearms on Archer. Archer just eggs him on, before he POUNCES the man out of the ring! The biggest man yet steps up, but Archer relishes the moment. They throw forearms but then Archer throws knees! He stomps a mudhole into the man then LARIATS him down! Challenger after challenger falls until there is not one standing. No one but Archer, that is.

The Snake applauds and the two head out. But someone late to the party tells the “a**hole” he’s up next. So Archer choke slams the man ONTO A CAR HOOD! And then uses the EBD Claw to dribble the man on it over and over and over again! If this is what Archer can do in one afternoon, what will he do to Cody and The Elite week after week?


AEW makes big match announcements for next week’s episode!

Blood & Guts won’t be the only brutal match next week! Luchasaurus and Wardlow will compete in AEW’s first-ever Lumberjack match! Will MJF and the mercenaries be able to help Mr. Mayhem against the dino-man?

Then, challenge accepted! The Parking Lot Brawl will go down as Pentagon and Rey Fenix will give Chuckie T and Trent their rematch! Who wins this other first-ever for AEW?

And more specifics for next week’s main event, it will be a 5-on-4 match with Nick Jackson out of commission! However, the graphic suggests there is the possibility of a substitution. Is that true? And who would even step up to join The Elite?


Blood & Guts Advantage Six Man Tag: The Inner Circle VS The Elite!

And speaking of being down a man, that means this match is even more critical for The Elite! Will Cody Rhodes, Matt Jackson and Hangman Page be able to coexist and conquer? Or will facing the united unit of Big Hurt Jake Hager and the Proud ‘n’ Powerful Santana & Ortiz be too much to handle?

AEW is picture in picture with a Sammy Guevara card promo. “Prepare to be entertained! Coming up next… The Inner Circle will DEFEAT the Elite! We’ll gain the upper hand… at Blood and Guts! With the numbers advantage, NO ONE can beat… The Inner Circle! We’re the best!” Ortiz clearly shouts this several times. Oh hey, the next card is “Shout out to Santana and Ortiz.” Sammy continues to say, “Always holding your weight, shout out Big Jake.” There’s even a Polo shirt doodle. “Putting Mox on the shelf! Shout out Le Champion. On that commentary, now… sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.” AEW returns to single picture as Chris Jericho makes his entrance! Sing along at home! Sammy’s sour but that’s music to Jericho’s ears.

The Elite make their entrance and Arn Anderson is here to support the team. Jericho says the clipboard looks like a Waffle House menu. Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall join the audience and the Gunn Club is even here to cheer. Jericho insults the neck tattoo while also insulting Excalibur’s art skills before Matt Jackson makes his solo Young Bucks intro. Jericho plays dumb as to what happened between Nick Jackson and the garage door. Last but not least, Hangman Page makes his entrance with Kenny Omega by his side. Jericho gloats that he’s beaten all members of The Elite once so his 4-0 record goes to their advantage already. The trios sort out and this advantage match begins with Cody and Santana.

MJF taunts Cody about the neck tattoo but Cody focuses on Santana. Cody waits on Santana while MJF keeps making jokes. Santana waits for Cody to look that way again before he clobbers Cody from behind! Santana throws haymakers and Cody staggers about. Cody ends up on ropes and Santana CHOPS and clubs Cody down.

Jericho complains on commentary about The Elite fooling us all into thinking they’re good guys despite all the cheating going. But Ortiz pokes Matt in the eye! And shows the claws. Tag to Santana and he runs but Matt dodges to go after Hager as revenge for what happened to Nick! Santana turns Matt around but Matt throws hands on him now! Santana knees low then throws haymakers of his own. He whips Matt to a corner but Matt comes back with a SPEAR! The bandanna comes off and Matt takes aim, but Hangman tags in! Passive aggressive again as Hangman gets in and brings Santana up. Santana spins out and ROCKS Hangman with big haymakers!

Santana CHOPS Hangman in a corner then whips him corner to corner. Hangman reverses and hits a big corner clothesline, then reels Santana in for another! Ortiz shouts at Hangman and the two argue. The ref keeps Ortiz back and Hangman brings Santana up. Santana enziguris but misses! Hangman dead lift pump handles for the suplex! Bridging cover, TWO! Hangman keeps his eyes on Ortiz and Hager but goes back to The Elite corner. Tag to Cody but with some attitude. MJF laughs at Cody and Jericho notes the tension, saying that will be The Elite’s downfall. Cody scoops Santana but Santana slips free to waistlock. Cody bucks Santana off but Ortiz hotshots him! Santana clotheslines Cody out and then tags Hager.

Hager blasts the Elite corner while Ortiz puts Cody in Gory Especial! Santana hops on the apron to SUPERKICK Cody, before Ortiz gives Cody snake eyes on the apron. Sammy taunts Kenny Omega and The Elite while Ortiz puts Cody back in. AEW goes to break just as Hager hits his Vader Bomb!

AEW returns as Hager gets the suplex hand-off from Santana. Cody’s been upside-down for at least 15 seconds now, and it goes to a tag to Ortiz. Ortiz gets the hand-off and keeps Cody up another count of 10 before dropping him! Cover, TWO! Jericho confirms that Cody was actually upside-down for close to a minute. Cody bails out and Coach Arn comes by to talk him up. Ortiz goes out and throws Cody into railing! And then into more railing! But Matt rushes over and throws haymakers! Matt mugs Ortiz by the railing but Hager pushes Matt away. The Inner Circle regroups and Ortiz goes back to Cody. Tag to Santana and Santana drags Cody around to lace the legs. Santana slaps Cody on the back to get the crossface for his Queen Angelito stretch!

The other AEW wrestlers rally for Cody, except for MJF and Spears. Cody fights his way up but Santana clubs him down. Santana hooks Cody’s arms with his legs for a butterfly clutch, TWO! Dustin cheers Cody on and Cody throws big body shots! But Santana basement enziguris Cody back down! Santana drags Cody over and tags in Hager.

Cody crawls again but Santana attacks The Elite corner to deny him a tag! Hager drags Cody away and Santana tags in. Santana drops elbow after elbow but Matt returns! Matt scraps with Hager while Santana stomps Cody and AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref tries to restore order but it allows The Inner Circle more time to bend the rules. Hager tags back in and he drags Cody up for a chinlock. Cody endures and fights his way up, but Hager shifts to gut wrench. Cody resists by grabbing Hager’s leg, and uses that leverage to power his way towards The Elite! Hager tries to hold Cody back, but he goes after Matt with a big right instead! Then Hager drags Cody away to tag in Santana. Santana stomps Cody down and drags him around. Santana traps Cody’s arm between his legs and, well, pretends Cody’s arm is a “front tail” as he wags it around. Then Santana wrenches the arm to a wristlock and tags Hager back in.

The Inner Circle mugs Cody and bumps him off buckles. Hager scoop slams Cody down, then taunts The Elite. Jericho has stuck a Young Buck buck to his head. Wonder where he got that idea from. Hager runs in for another Hager Bomb, but gets BOOTS! Both Cody and Hager are down, crawling for their corners but on the far sides from them. Hot tags to Santana and HANGMAN!

Matt runs into Santana’s boot from the corner, but Matt gives Santana the Northern Suplex! Jericho has to admit that the Polar Express is impressive. Matt keeps going, Northern Lights after Northern Lights. Hager runs in and Matt tries, but he doesn’t have the power! So Hangman helps out!? DOUBLE NORTHERN LIGHTS!

Jericho complains but Hangman and Matt are on the same page! Matt scoops Santana and Hangman slingshots, but Hager yanks Hangman down! Hangman SMACKS off the apron!! Santana slips out to wheelbarrow and victory roll, The Inner Circle win!!

Winners: The Inner Circle, by pinfall (gain Blood & Guts entry advantage)

And it’s over just like that! The Inner Circle already have a numbers advantage with Nick Jackson down, and now they’ll be able to use it time and again in Blood & Guts! “Look at this! Look at this!” Jericho calls everyone dumb idiots and asks if they saw what just happened. Shut the music off so he can talk! It’s not like there are fans here anyway. Jericho gloats that the Inner Circle would get the advantage, and now they are guaranteed to win Blood & Guts!

In fact, there are four reasons why they’re guaranteed to win. First, this win here giving them the advantage. Second, they’re The Inner Circle, duh! Third, Jericho bans all fans from all future AEW events until he says so. The world could change for the better tomorrow, still no fans allowed next week. He doesn’t need “pumpkin-headed dipsh*ts” chanting for Cody, Matt or whoever. And fourth and most important, after what happened to Matt’s “snot-nosed little brother,” Nick, this is 5v4 for an obvious advantage. They count it down on their fingers, making sure to end on the middle one. “You don’t stand a chance, maaan~!” So when Blood & Guts finally happens- Hager does push-ups with Sammy on his back!

But as Jericho was saying, the Inner Circle has never had any problems with each other. No tensions, no finisher friendly fire, no getting buzzed ringside, none of that! So there’s no way the Inner Circle does anything but win. They’ve dominated AEW! They’ve dominated The Elite! So come Blood & Guts, they’ll dominate that, too. And get paid a lot of money. Jericho talks smack to Brandi and Dustin now. Sammy, show off that bod. Hit up the Spanish God. Cody’s a loser anyway, so-

Wait, what’s that buzzing? Is that a drone? Is that THE drone?! Matt gets a mic to admit that The Elite hasn’t always been on good terms with each other. But one mistake Jericho made is assuming The Elite was outnumbered. It isn’t 5v4 at all. Matt made a call to a friend who owed him a favor. Piano music plays, and BROKEN MATT HARDY IS IN AEW!! The Inner Circle is speechless. Will Hardy help The Elite DELETE!?



My Thoughts:

What an amazing episode! Now, not to harp on comparisons with the WWE and their way of handling empty arena episodes, but this is how Raw should’ve handled it on Monday. Though, I am surprised AEW went ahead with as many matches and with as many people present as they did. And not to make it as if the audience doesn’t matter for a wrestling show, because there are times a live audience can add (or subtract) from wrestling. But when a show is booked the right way, live audiences don’t really matter for a television viewing experience. And this episode was booked right.

Cody opening to make a sort of plea to The Elite in hopes of rallying them together was good, and even Jake the Snake’s snipe about it was good, too. Archer’s vignette being him running a gauntlet of over a dozen men was great, as it gives us an idea of his AEW persona as opposed to the NJPW Archer. But obviously, “Everybody dies!” sticks with him no matter what. Archer may be Jake’s client but I wouldn’t mind seeing the ring leader join the faction as someone to make entrance introductions for them. MJF and the other wrestlers ringside really added to stuff, which was the perfect way to take advantage of no fans. Why WWE didn’t think to do more of that these last few days is a bit odd but now it’s too late, they’d be seen as copying AEW from here on.

The matches didn’t even need fans cheering it on, either, aside from their fellow wrestlers watching. The Women’s Fatal 4 was really good, and Penelope is doing great with this apparent push. Shida still wins as she’s been on course for a match with Nyla Rose for some time now, but everyone looked great in this match. Cabana and Kip getting at it was great and their match will be fun to see. Maybe Cabana ends up with a female ally to give us more Mixed Tag matches. There were some miscues here and there in the tag matches we got, but other than that, great stuff there, too. Next week’s Parking Lot Brawl is going to be great, and while Jurassic Park gets wins as duos, I’m still hoping this builds to the AEW Trios Championships.

The Dark Order’s Exalted One turning out to be Luke Harper/Brodie Lee was highly expected by a lot of us, but I’m okay with it. Him wanting The Dark Order to be more forceful is an interesting direction, but I did like his line about another old man not believing in him. Lee definitely has the physical strength to be an imposing leader, and Lee VS Daniels would make for a pretty good match that could easily be built all the way to Double or Nothing. And may have to, given the way of the world. I almost thought that with Moxley’s promo about a blind spot and the graphic suggesting a new fifth man meant he’d join The Elite for Blood & Guts, but seems not. Broken Matt freakin’ Hardy, ladies and gentlemen! What a great way to accent how it seemed all hope was lost for The Elite.

The Six Man Tag main event was great on all levels, from in the ring to the character work with everyone involved. I thought the moment of Matt Jackson and Hangman Page finally working together again was going to come in Blood & Guts, but they did at least save some sort of Buck Shot meets Indietaker combination move for that match. I am very intrigued to see Hardy bring back his Broken fighting style, and perhaps even change it up a bit more now that he’s in a new company. Blood & Guts being submission or surrender only, I’d think Hardy has a submission move picked out to use on someone, regardless if it gets the finish.

My Score:  9.3/10

Backstage interview with Team Triple J.

Lexi Nair is with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, as well as Jeff & Karen Jarrett, “and the talk all week has been that you, Sonjay Dutt, and your group will be suspended.” WHAT?! Fined? Suspended? The only ones who should be facing that is AEW itself! They backed Triple J into a corner and they came out swinging like any real fighters would! Lethal feels that there should be consequences for Aubrey Edwards! She’s been against Triple J since the dawn of time! Something needs to be done about her! Jeff adds that there’s been enough talk these past five days. Should the heat go on the promotion? Should the heat go on Briscoe? On Aubrey?

The reality of the fact is, these five people are walking, talking, fire-breathing heat! But wait, here comes Mark Briscoe! He wants everyone to simmer down. There will be no suspensions, he assures us that. Mark talked with Tony Khan, Tony promised them there would be no suspensions. Because if Triple J is suspended, then they can’t be here. Because if they aren’t here, then they can’t get the ass whooping they deserve! Lethal wants Mark to hold on but Mark tells Lethal to shut up! We ain’t talking about Lethal! We’re talking about Jeff and KAREN! What?! “We?” Who is “we?!” AUBREY EDWARDS!!

Triple J cannot believe this. Aubrey wants Karen? Then there’s nothing but air and opportunity between them. So then Aubrey CHOKES Karen!! Karen and Aubrey start scrapping and Triple J, other refs and security rush in to stop this! When and where will Double J & the one true Karen have to face off with the Sussex County Chicken and one pissed off zebra?


NJPW World Television Championship: Zack Sabre Jr. VS Action Andretti!

Speaking of just last night on ROH, the Frontman of TMDK just defended this belt against Rocky Romero to prove a point to “Samoan Joseph” about who is the better, harder working Television Champion. And here he is again as part of this championship edition of Rampage! Will the ZSJ Show continue on into the summer block? Or will NJPW have some #LightsCameraAction?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Action gets his 15 minutes of fame!

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The two circle, fans rally, feel things out, and ZSJ shoots in to waistlock and full nelson. Then he spins Action to a cravat, but Action pries at the hold. ZSJ facelocks now, Action wrenches out of that but ZSJ rolls and slips away. Fans cheer this opening exchange and the two reset. Action shoots in but ZSJ avoids him. They tie up with knuckle locks, ZSJ bridges back and wrenches around to then wrangle Action with a top wristlock. Fans cheer and ZSJ digs a knee into the shoulder.

Direct hit into the railing! Fans are fired up with Action and he brings ZSJ back up. Action puts ZSJ in, slingshots, but ZSJ shoves him! Action lands safe but swings into body scissors, which ZSJ makes into a HANGING TRIANGLE! ZSJ did this to Rocky last night! The ref counts, ZSJ lets go at 4 and he drags Action back in, to WRING the arm out! Fans sing “OH~ Zack Sabre Junior~” as he stalks Action. ZSJ sits on the arm, hammerlocks it, and TWISTS!

Action writhes while fans are torn over the savagery. ZSJ gets Action’s leg, steps over to get the arm, and he STOMPS the arm! “OI! TV Tekkers, mates!” ZSJ stalks Action to a corner, brings him up and UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! “This is Awesome!” and ZSJ knuckle locks to wrench Action. Action endures as ZSJ twists the wrist more, and then ZSJ KICKS a leg. Action stays up so ZSJ wrenches and twists the wrist. Action throws body shots and CHOPS! ZSJ jumps on to drag Action down to a DISARMER! Action endures, reaches out, and fans rally. Action kicks around, ZSJ pulls on the arm, but Action gets the ROPEBREAK!

ZSJ lets go in frustration but he storms up to drag Action up. ZSJ has a double wristlock but Action endures. Fans rally, ZSJ jumps on to body scissor! Action stays up but ZSJ keeps on that arm. Action throws body shots, then suplexes high and HARD! Both men are down and fans are thunderous! Action roars, runs, springboards, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cover, TWO! ZSJ survives and fans rally up again. Action brings ZSJ up, but ZSJ fights the torture rack to wrench and PELE the arm! And then he drop toeholds Action so he can STOMP the arm again!

ZSJ flops around, Action runs in again, “This is Awesome!” as Action SHOTGUNS ZSJ down! ZSJ is in the drop zone, Action goes up, SPLIT-LEG MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!!

Modified Rings of Saturn, into JIM BREAKS ARMBAR!! Action verbally quits, ZSJ wins!!

Winner: Zack Sabre Jr, by submission (still NJPW World TV Champion)

Action’s 15 minutes of fame were really just over 10 minutes as The Frontman does it again! But now he moves on to defend this title at NJPW Dominion on Sunday against Jeff Cobb in a highly anticipated rematch. The Mighty Don’t Kneel, but will ZSJ get crushed by the Imperial Unit?


NJPW Strong Women’s Championship: Willow Nightingale VS Emi Sakura!

The Babe with the Power, too sweet to be sour, is the very-first NJPW Strong Women’s Champion after a powerful run at Resurgence. But will Willow make it through her first defense? Or will the Queen of Joshi take Willow’s throne already?

Emi goes out, signals to media to move, and laughs before she TOSSES Willow at railing! Fans rally as Emi runs in to SPLASH Willow against the railing! The ring count climbs as Emi drags Willow up and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Emi CHOPS Willow, Willow goes to ropes, and Emi CHOPS her again! Willow goes to a corner, Emi soaks up the heat, and she storms up to CHOP again! And again! And again!

Willow staggers to a corner, Emi grins and runs in, BODY CHECK in the corner! Emi goes up top to TWISTING VADER! Cover, TWO!! Willow survives and Emi is frustrated. Emi reels Willow in, hooks the arms, but Willow fights again!

Willow Alabama Lifts but Emi sunset flips! Willow rolls through to BASEMENT CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Emi survives but Willow just runs in, only for Emi to sidestep and roll-up! TWO, but Emi steps over. Willow powers out of La Magistrol, and DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Willow fires up, DOUBLE LARIATS collide again! Willow fires up again, swings, but Emi gets around to CHOP LARIAT!! Both women are down and the fans fire back up! The ref checks and both women are still in this.

“Tonight, two technical masters go face to face when Lee Moriarty takes on Shibata for the ROH Pure Championship.” Nigel McGuiness says a competitor like Shibata can pick you apart, one body part by another. But Tony Schiavone and Taz say not enough is said about just how talented Moriarty is for such a young wrestler. It looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!

ROH Pure Championship: Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty!

The Wrestler defended this title just last night on ROH against his student, Alex “The Android” Coughlin. But now he faces #TAIGASTYLE, who has come close to snatching this title for his own not too long ago. Will tonight be Moriarty’s night? Or will Shibata make it through this Pure Wrestling Double Header?

The introductions are made, our judges are BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels & Jerry Lynn, and the belt is raised as we see who is truly THE Wrestler!

The bell rings and the clock is ticking on this 60 minute time limit. The two feel things out, Moriarty shoots in but Shibata holds him off with a sprawl. They clinch on the mat, Shibata slips to a waistlock and then a chinlock. Moriarty slips free but Shibata pushes him to a cover, ONE! Shibata wraps Moriarty up with his own arm and then goes for the armbar! Moriarty clasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE! Moriarty falls onto the ROPEBREAK, that is his first of three. Shibata even lets Moriarty know it as they reset. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder, clinch, and Moriarty tries for a leg.

Shibata powers Moriarty down, gets around to a waistlock, and they stand up. Moriarty pries the hold, fans cheer this technical exchange, but then Moriarty elbows free! Moriarty stomps Shibata into a corner, the ref counts, but Moriarty digs his boot in. Fans boo, but Shibata powers up to back Moriarty down! Shibata throws the foot down but Shibata ROCKS him! Moriarty runs to dropkick the legs out! Fans boo while Moriarty grits his teeth, and then the fans rally up for Shibata as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Moriarty mocks the applause as he stands over Shibata. Moriarty then says they can stop all that, and he grabs a leg to DDT the foot! Moriarty kips up, air guitars, and he ties up Shibata’s legs into a unique crisscross toehold. Then he sits with it for a modified stump puller! Shibata’s shoulders are down, Moriarty is practically stealing Darby Allin’s Last Supper! TWO as Shibata kicks out and Moriarty argues the count. Moriarty drags Shibata around, stomps a leg, then stomps it more and more before another DDT to the foot! Moriarty mocks the clapping from the fans, and then he drags Shibata around for a spinning toehold!

Shibata endures as Moriarty ties up the legs into another cross toehold. Moriarty puts Shibata into an Indian Deathlock, then he knuckle locks Shibata for a cover. TWO as Shibata gets an arm up! Moriarty pushes the arm back down, TWO as Shibata gets the other arm up! Moriarty pushes that arm down, TWO as Shibata gets both arms up! Moriarty CHOPS Shibata, pushes on the legs, then lets Shibata go. Moriarty gets a leg, hooks it, and ties Shibata up in another cross toehold, only for Shibata to trip him! Shibata gets Moriarty’s legs, steps through, but Moriarty fights the figure four! Shibata powers through to sync it in!

Moriarty endures, reaches out, but his shoulders are down. TWO as Moriarty sits up, Shibata keeps on the pressure, and Moriarty falls back onto his shoulders. TWO as he sits up again! Shibata has the extended leg caught in a heel hook behind his back! Moriarty falls back again, shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up! Moriarty endures, reaches out, claws at the hold, and he pries it open. Shibata works to keep it on tight, Moriarty is down again, TWO! Moriarty sits up, Shibata thrashes around, and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans rally, Moriarty drags Shibata along as he reaches back, but Shibata drags him from the ropes!

Moriarty scrambles and goes to the opposite side, ROPEBREAK! That’s his second, he has one left, and we’ve only just past six minutes! Shibata stomps Moriarty’s bad leg, has him in a corner, and he fires off forearms! The ref counts, Shibata fires again and again, but lets off at 4. Shibata runs corner to corner but Moriarty follows to KNEE him in the corner! And then HALF HATCH BRIDGE! TWO as Shibata fights out of the “pancake.” Moriarty HAMMERS away on the back of Shibata’s head! Fans rally, Moriarty suplexes, but Shibata blocks! Shibata powers out but Moriarty kicks low!

Moriarty runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Fans rally, Shibata stomps his legs into working, and he storms up on Moriarty. Shibata drags Moriarty up to whip him to a corner and BOOT! And he fires off more forearms! The ref counts, Shibata runs corner to corner, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Fans fire up for that Shibata signature and he drags Moriarty up. HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Moriarty is still in this but Shibata clamps right on with a chinlock! Moriarty fights to the ROPEBREAK, but that’s his last! Shibata waistlocks. Moriarty switches to roll up, TWO! But Moriarty rolls with to get the BORDER CITY STRETCH!!

Shibata endures, Moriarty pulls him back, but fans rally up. Shibata rolls things to a cover, TWO! Moriarty ROCKS Shibata, winds up, but Shibata ROCKS Moriarty! And then SLEEPER!! Shibata sits Moriarty down, runs, PENALTY KICK!! Cover, Shibata wins!!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall (still ROH Pure Champion)

Just past nine minutes and Shibata finishes things off, but wait! Daniel Garcia is here! The Dragonslayer is a former ROH Pure Champion, and he’s walking out right to the ring! Garcia steps in, he swaggers up to Shibata, and it is clear this is what’s next for Shibata. Shibata raises the belt to signal his accepting the challenge, will The Wrestler put down this sports… enner-tay-ner?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, though I’m surprised this wasn’t just a Battle of the Belts special. Excalibur said it himself on commentary in the main event, but it was great to start off with the epitome of lucha libre and finish on Strong Style technical wrestling. The AAA Mega Championship was a great opener, and was definitely another instance where I’m grateful we can pause things because they were going fast and furious. Or maybe at Flash speeds, since that’s a Warner Brothers movie they could plug. But as I figured going into this, all the champions retained, since none of these were AEW titles (directly, since ROH is a subsidiary of AEW now).

The NJPW World Television Championship continues to be a great title to watch because of the 15 minute time limit speeding things up. Likewise, ZSJ is always a great wrestler to watch, but so hard to write for cuz he has the biggest collection of named signature moves/holds of any wrestler I’ve seen. I had to double check what he was using to make Action tap, because I keep thinking things are Clarky Cat when they’re not Clarky Cat. ZSJ is setting a very high bar for this title, maybe he retains against Cobb at Dominion or maybe he loses, but it’s going to be hard for the second-ever NJPW World TV Champion to match what ZSJ has done.

Great first title defense for Willow and this title, she and Emi put on a great match. I wonder when Willow has her first defense on NJPW Strong, and who she’ll be facing. And we got a great Pure Championship match to finish, and I’m surprised it was so quick, even compared to the NJPW World TV Championship match. But great win for Shibata, I like that Garcia is stepping up, and that’s going to be an awesome match. I don’t know if they’re going to wait until Death Before Dishonor in July for that match, but knowing AEW and ROH, they can find a way to stretch things out. Especially with Garcia also busy being part of JAS and doing JAS things.

My Score: 8.7/10

Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS The Lucha Brothers & Bandido!

Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, along with Bryan Danielson, were victorious at Double or Nothing in Anarchy in the Arena II, but they had some help at the end. We’ll hear from dirty Don and turncoat Takeshita later, because right now, the BCC want to unleash #DeathJitsu on the ROH World Tag Team Champions & The Most Wanted! Will the Maniac, the Swiss Superman and the Decoder prove they’re ready for more violence?

Fans are fired up for the Lucha Bros & Bandido but the BCC isn’t amused. The trios sort out but then everyone starts shoving. Then they start brawling! The ref reprimands but the BCC have the luchadores on the ropes. They triple whip but the luchadores all reverse to TRIPLE SUPERKICK! Fans fire up with “CERO!

Fans rally up, Bandido suplexes Yuta! And holds him up! Uno! Dos! Tress! But then Mox rushes in! Fenix SUPERKICKS him first! Penta sees Claudio and SUPERKICKS him first! Then they SUPERKICK again! Bandido goes past TWENTY, and then the Lucha Brothers each grab Moxley and Claudio to hammerlock arms. DOUBLE SACRIFICE ARMBARS!! Bandido makes it to THIRTY but he isn’t done!!

Bandido makes it to FORTY, and then FIFTY!! Yuta’s head is almost as red as Bandido’s outfit as we get to SIXTY, and the SLAM!! Cover, TWO!?! Yuta survives and Bryan is proud of his student again. But tag to Penta, Fenix goes up, “CERO! MIEDO!” But Yuta slips free, only for Penta to SUPERKICK! TIGHTROPE WALK KICK! But Moxley CUTTERS Penta! Fenix SCREW HIGH KICKS Mox, but Claudio CLOBBERS Fenix! Penta SUPERKICKS, whips, Claudio reverses but Penta goes up and over, BACKSTABBER!!

Penta crawls, as does Yuta, hot tag to Bandido! He HOTSHOTS Yuta, springboards but Yuta moves! Bandido FLOPS, then distracts the ref! Claudio & Moxley drag Bandido out to ASSISTED PILEDRIVER to the floor!! Bryan loves it while fans boo, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta snap suplexes Bandido up and over, then drags Bandido back up. He fists bumps Claudio, puts Bandido in the ring, then tags Moxley. Moxley keeps Bandido from the corner with a facelock, but fans rally up. Bandido fights to his feet, only for Moxley to HALF HATCH! Moxley then tags Claudio in, they stomps Bandido, then Claudio grabs an arm to grind it down. Bandido endures, fights to the ROPEBREAK, but Claudio brings him up. Bandido throws body shots but Claudio chinbars to keep him from the corner. Claudio whips and CLOBBERS Bandido, then flexes. Tag to Moxley and the BCC stomp Bandido again.

Moxley gets the legs to stomp Bandido int he stomach. Moxley then turns Bandido with a HALF CRAB! Bandido reaches out, Yuta tries to keep the rope from him but the ref reprimands. Fans rally up, Bandido gets the ROPEBREAK! Moxley lets go to bring Bandido up and he throws knee after knee. Moxley whips, Bandido sunset flips, but Moxley rolls through to KNEE Bandido down! Cover, TWO, but Moxley gets the arms for DRAGON STOMPS! Moxley drags Bandido to a cover, TWO! Moxley grabs an arm to hammerlock it and grind Bandido down. Bandido endures while Dynamite returns to single picture.

Fans rally but Moxley chinbars Bandido into a chinlock. Bandido still endures, but Moxley wraps Bandido arms around for a straitjacket stretch. Bandido still fights up and JAWBREAKERS free! Moxley runs in to clothesline at the corner! And again! Moxley talks trash on Bandido, whips him corner to corner, but Bandido BOOTS him! And UPPERCUTS! And goes up top for a TORNILLO! Direct hit and fans are thunderous! Both Bandido and Moxley crawl, hot tags to Claudio and Fenix! Fenix waistlocks, Claudio fights it and elbows free to then whip.

Fenix still SUPERKICKS! Yuta runs in to BOOT Fenix! Fans foo, but Yuta runs in and only gets the buckles! JUMP SOBAT! Snapmare and tag to Penta! UNO, DOS, TRES! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!! Claudio returns, Penta dodges and SLINGBLADES! Penta goes to a corner, Claudio runs in but Penta pops him up into a headstand, to SUPERKICK him down! Penta then uses Claudio to victory roll and jump, DDT for Moxley! Claudio LARIATS in return!! Fans fire up again as Claudio stirs. Claudio drags Penta back but Penta kicks him away. Hot tags to Yuta and Bandido! Yuta and Bandido fire forearms back and forth!

The fans are on Bandido’s side but Yuta ROCKS him! Yuta eggs Bandido on, and the forearms go back and forth again! Bryan says Yuta’s technique is the advantage, but Bandido starts using speed! The forearms keep going and the fans fire up! Yuta BITES Bandido’s forehead! Yuta runs, into a DROPKICK! Bandido throws off the shirt and fans are thunderous again! Bandido whips, pops Yuta up, CUTTER!! Bandido goes up, the Lucha Brothers get in. “CERO! MIEDO!” The Lucha Brothers DOUBLE TOPE to take out Mox & Claudio! FROG SPLASH for Bandido! Cover, TWO!!! Bryan says this is what he was talking about!

Fans boo but Bandido drags Yuta up to gut wrench and Canadian Rack. Torture rack to KNEE STRIKE! Bandido has Yuta on the ropes, he runs, but Moxley anchors Yuta out of the 21 Plex! The ref reprimands, Penta ENZIGURIS Moxley! Yuta sends Bandido to ropes, Claudio UPPERCUTS Bandido! Yuta BUSAIKU KNEES, to the HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS!!! Bryan calls ever shot, and then Yuta shifts into the SEATBELT! The BCC wins!

Winner: The Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

Bryan celebrates with his guys, though the fans aren’t as happy about it. Will the BCC soon look to take over AEW one division at a time?


Backstage interview with The Elite.

Alex Marvez is with Hangman Page and the Young Bucks while Matt Jackson is having his foot taped up. Anarchy in the Arena II was perhaps one of the most brutal matches in AEW history, what is the status of Matt and the rest of the team three days later? Matt says a long time ago, he told Hangman that he brings out the good in them. Safe to say, after Sunday, the BCC bring out the worst in them. Never thought the day would come where Matt would try to melt the face of another man with an explosive sneaker, and alas, here we are.

Nick, a big bandage on his forehead, recounts Hangman saying that they are the heart, the soul and the spirit of AEW. Not one setback is gonna keep them down! Hangman says they are still standing, still swinging, and still breathing! To be a group that prides themselves on being the best, the BCC sure love to use numbers. But the truth is- Wait, in walks the Dark Order. They tell Hangman, “Good to see you.” Oh, did Matt hurt his foot? Silver says Hangman is with his new-old best friends, they should probably just go. Sorry about that. Hangman wants to respond to that, but Marvez has one more question.

It has been said, rumored, that Kenny Omega has left the country and gone home to Canada based on everything that’s happened the last few weeks. Any word on that? Hangman says Kenny is hurt, he is pissed, and yes he is out of the country, but he’s not in Canada. Hangman excuses himself to chase after The Dark Order, what is the status of that friendship? What is the status of The Cleaner after further betrayal by men he once called friends?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Double or Nothing is in the rearview mirror, and he welcomes out two men who were very active that night, Jay White & Juice Robinson, Bullet Club Gold! The Switchblade & Rock Hard make their way out, and White says the money’s here! Schiavone says their issue with Ricky Starks seems never ending. They get in close and he says they attacked Starks backstage! White starts by saying that Double or Nothing was a great night. Fans cheer and White applauds, too. But White bets Starks feels he’s on top of the world after he eliminated Jay & Juice from the battle royal.

But as a reminder to everyone, especially to Ricky Starks, he’s not the International Champion. he lost that battle royal just like he lost to White. And Juice says that brings them to FTR! BCG wants to know, WHY, Dax & Cash, did you come to the aid of “sweet boy” Ricky? It doesn’t make sense! There’s no way FTR are friends with Ricky Starks, because we all know Ricky Starks ain’t got no friends! White says we also know FTR are “a couple of Southern boys,” so maybe they’re a little bit slow. And they look dumb, too, have you seen them? You heard them talk? They sound pretty dumb, too!

White just didn’t actually think they were dumb enough to get in the Bang Bang Gang’s business! But wait, here comes FTR! Dax & Cash are still AEW World Tag Team Champions after Mark Briscoe saw who were his real friends on Sunday night. The champs get in the ring but White uses Schiavone as a shield. Seems FTR are that dumb. Juice says keep this cordial. This isn’t them being dumb, they’re here to apologize! White isn’t so sure, but maybe Juice is on to something. Maybe they’re also here because they wanna join BULLET CLUB GOLD~! Yeah? Huh? White says FTR are ready to be some Gold members!

So do they wanna join the top shelf gunslingers? Top Shelf Top Guys! If they wanted to join, all they had to do was ask. Just make sure you do it politely. White holds out the mic to Dax, then drops it as he reaches out. Fans boo and Dax glares at White. But then Juice sucker punches Dax! FISTFUL O’ SILVER DOLLARS!! Cash TACKLES Juice, but White goes after Cash! The BCG mug Cash while Dax writhes, clutching his jaw! Juice drags Dax up, JUICE IS LOOSE!! “Take that!” White gets Cash for a BLADERUNNER!! “That’s what you get!!” But here comes Starks! Starks runs BCG off and grabs the mic.

“Hey you two cowards! I’m sick of you two every single week! So how about this? You keep that jabroni ass freak in the back, and you and me, Jay, we finish it next week on Dynamite! YOU PUNK ASS B*TCH!!” The Absolute throws out the ultimatum, will he and King Switch finally put an end to this?


Tony Khan has an announcement for AEW Collision.

“It’s great to be here tonight in San Diego. The last few weeks, we made some announcements regarding the debut of AEW Saturday Night Collision, starting June 17th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. I’m here tonight to give you a little more information about the debut of AEW Collision. I’m here to announce that AEW Collision, beginning June 17th, will feature… CM Punk!” Fans go wild hearing that! The Best in the World, the polarizing Plus Delta of AEW, is making his return in his hometown! What kind of collision are we going to say for that debut episode?


Triple Threat: Swerve Strickland VS “Big Bill” Morrissey VS Trent Beretta!

The Blackjack Battle Royal was a bust for everyone hoping to take the title off Orange Cassidy, but there was a lot of beef between these three men during all the chaos. Who scores a much easier win under 33% odds versus the one in 21?

The bell rings and Swerve bails out so Bill can’t get him. Fans boo but then Bill turns his attention to Trent. Fans fire up and Bill storms up on Trent. Trent slips away to not be cornered, then he CHOPS Bill! Bill scowls and dusts himself off. Bill storms up again, Trent slips away again and headlocks. Bill powers up but Trent holds on. Bill powers out, Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges and DIVES onto Swerve on the outside! Fans fire up as Trent puts Swerve in the ring saying “You’re turn!” He wants Bill to get at Swerve and Bill’s fine with that. Swerve wants Bill to hold on, but then he swings on Bill!

Bill blocks the punch, so Swerve kicks a leg. Swerve goes to whip but Bill blocks that, too! Bill whips, Swerve goes up and around and BOOTS Bill! Trent returns to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Bill just choke grips back! Bill BOOTS Swerve, then shoves Trent to a corner. Bill SPLASHES Swerve, SPLASHES Trent, and repeat! Bill clotheslines Swerve up and out! Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges but Bill FLAPJACKS Trent then BOOTS him down! Fans fire up with Bill while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Bill watches as Trent crawls back in. Bill kicks Trent, drags him up, and CLUBS him back down. Bill then steps out to go after Swerve. Fans fire up as Bill stalks Swerve around the way, then UPPERCUTS him! Swerve CHOPS, Bill TOSSES him to the ramp! Swerve writhes, Trent goes out after Bill and throws body shots. Bill ROCKS Trent with a haymaker! Then he SMACKS Trent off the steps! Trent falls and Bill soaks up the cheers and jeers. Bill stalks Swerve on the ramp, drags him up, and brings him around to SMACK him off the apron! And then CHOPS him against the apron! Swerve sputters and drops to his knees.

Bill gives a toying kick to Swerve, but Swerve comes back with a CHOP! Bill ROCKS Swerve with a right hand! Bill then kicks Trent down. Bill soaks up the cheers and jeers as he brings Swerve around the way, to scoop, but Swerve lips off! Swerve POSTS Bill, Trent SPEARS Bill! Fans fire up but then Swerve RAMS Trent into the railing! Swerve puts Trent on the apron, goes up after him, and fireman’s carries. Trent fights free, but Swerve CHOPS him! Trent ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Trent and Dynamite returns to single picture, right as Trent ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Trent back so the shots keep going!

Fans fire up but Swerve knees low! Swerve fireman’s carries, Trent slips off again, but Swerve fights the half nelson! Swerve throws elbows, Bill gets in the ring and runs that way, Trent pulls Swerve into the path of the BOOT! Down goes Swerve, then Trent SHOTGUNS Bill off the apron! Fans fire up as Trent goes up a corner, to ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Down goes Bill! Fans fire up with Trent but now Swerve goes up to BOOT from the apron! Swerve drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and fans rally up. Trent is in a drop zone, Swerve goes up the corner. But Bill choke grips him! Swerve fights the arm but Bill CHOPS him!

Bill climbs up to join Swerve, choke grips again, but Trent hits Bill low! Trent climbs up, but Bill grabs him, too! But then both Trent & Swerve throat chop! Fans boo, but Trent & Swerve work together to DOUBLE SUPERPLEX Bill!! All three men are down and fans are thunderous! Bill goes to a corner, Swerve and Trent throw forearms again! They go back and forth, Swerve throws body shot after body shot! Swerve runs, but Trent gets around, HALF ‘N’ HALF! Swerve tumbles out, Trent builds speed, but Bill scoops! BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!!! Cover, Swerve HOUSE CALLS! Cover on Bill, TWO?!?!

Bill survives but Swerve rolls to COMPLETE SHOT Trent! Trent sits up, Swerve goes up, KILL- NO, Trent avoids the stomps! To BUSAIKU KNEE!! Trent reels Swerve in, PILEDRIVER!! Cover, BILL BREAKS IT! Bill stalks Trent to the apron and fans fire up. Bill drags Trent up but Trent CHOPS! Bill doesn’t budge, so Trent CHOPS again! Bill clamps onto Trent’s throat, CHOKE SLAM into the ring! But Swerve APRON KILL STOMPS Bill!!! And then roll-up on Trent, Swerve wins!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

The Mogul takes advantage and gets a huge win! Will Swerve soon be aiming for another title shot?


Kris Statlander speaks.

“Today’s date is May 28th, 2023. It’s the PPV, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I am officially cleared. I am your NEW TBS Champion. It’s been a long time coming, and this whole time, I was never really sure if I deserved it. Not sure if I was someone deserving of this moment. It just really shows me how much not only does this place mean to me, but how much I mean to AEW. It’s just so nice to physically hold something to feel like you deserve it for once. Not only am I gonna prove to everyone that they were right, but I’m gonna prove to myself that this is my time. And I’m gonna have the best damn title reign anyone’s ever seen.” But she’s already putting the title on the line, will her time be short?


Renee Paquette is on stage.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass.” Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn are here, and Renee says that unfortunately, thing didn’t go their way in that AEW World Trios Championship match. They asked for this time, so the floor is theirs. Billy says Renee is right, things did not go quite the way they’d planned. But that’s okay! Because anyone can get beat at any given time. Billy’s biggest regret is that he let his guys down. Caster says that Billy shouldn’t blame himself. They win as a team and lose as a team. They won a lot as a trio, undefeated until facing House of Black.

And see, Caster is the best wrestler alive, Bowens is the Five Tool Player, and Billy is the legend! They ARE The Acclaimed, they are the People’s Choice. Bowens says that is right. And their goal remains the same. A few months ago, Acclaimed were screwed outta tag team gold. Fans boo that, but the Acclaimed want gold back! “And this man, this legend, after over 30 YEARS of giving his all to the business, of giving his all to each and every one of you, giving his all to us, this man deserves to hold gold one more time!” Fans love the sound of that! They chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”

Bowens says do not worry about it, Billy, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So the goal remains the same, and the three SCISSOR FINGER~! Will they cut down the House of Black one way or another? Or will the House always win?


Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

The bile rises in his throat as he has to say these names. “Here comes… Don Callis! And… Konosuke Takeshita.” Fans boo as Callis & Takeshita walk their way out to no music, but with highlights of Callis helping the BCC cheat the Elite. Callis & Takeshita go to the ring to join Schiavone, and Schiavone says, “Sunday night, Double or Nothing, not so sure. We talked to Bryan Danielson, whose side are you on? Whose side are you with? One thing we know for sure, you apparently have yourself a new protégé.” Callis grins but fans boo, and Callis says he sincerely hopes that such boos are for Kenny Omega! No, they’re for Callis.

Callis continues to say he is the REAL victim here! He has done everything for Kenny Omega! The booing gets louder! And they’re even flipping Callis off! Callis says Kenny only had what he had because of Callis! The AEW World Championship? All Callis! Kenny chose his friends. Every morning, Callis has to get up and look at the scar on his head! 23 stitches! And Callis blames it all on Kenny! Kenny destroyed Callis’ family! And maybe Callis lost a nephew, but he gained a son in Konosuke Takeshita! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Callis says Takeshita is the best athlete he has ever seen in wrestling! 6’3″, 240 pounds, and you know who he’s better than?

Konosuke is better than Rikidōzan! Better than Antonio Inoki! Better than Keiji Mutoh! And yes, better than Kazuchika Okada! But you know who else he’s better than? We’ll see it very soon, too! Konosuke is better than Kenny Omega! Konosuke gets the mic to tell everyone Japanese that they’re all stupid! Kenny Omega is nothing! And they all know it! Then in English, “We will destroy the Elite! We will destroy Kenny… Omega!” Callis tells Kenny that he destroyed his family so Callis is building a new one! And that new family will cut the Elite out of All Elite Wrestling! Fans boo as hard as they’ve ever booed before, but will that not stop what Callis is planning for Kenny Omega?


Arn Anderson & Wardlow speak.

The Enforcer says that before Double or Nothing and the ladder match, he cut through all the BS and asked Wardlow one question: What are you willing to do to Christian Cage? Everyone’s giving Arn a bunch of hoopla about biting that giant lizard’s thumb. But Wardlow got manhandled, and when you snatch Arn by the neck, what you think’s gonna happen? Wardlow says Luchasaurus found out not to get involved with their business. Arn wants to know what Wardlow’s willing to do, and he answered that. There are no more limits! If Luchasaurus wants to be next, Wardlow will be more than happy to finish the job!


Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin VS The Gates of Agony w/ Prince Nana!

Freshly Squeezed is still the AEW International Champion after facing the steepest odds possible, while the Relentless One could not overcome MJF, Sammy Guevara & Jack Perry all at once to become AEW World Champion. But will this unlikely duo keep going against even this daunting duo in front of them?

The teams sort out, but Bishop Kaun shoves Darby off the corner! And Toa Liona goes after Cassidy with clubbing forearms! The bell rings, Kaun keeps after Darby on the outside, and Cassidy just gets his jacket and shirt off. Kaun CHOPS Darby, Liona pushes Cassidy down, then Liona drags Cassidy up to whip corner to corner. Cassidy tumbles up and out, baits Liona in and shoulders into him. Cassidy bumps Liona off buckles, but Liona just glares at him! Liona drags Cassidy up and into the ring to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Kaun scoops Darby, but Darby slips free to POST Kaun! Darby tags in!

Fans fire up as Darby, bad shoulder all taped up, has the fans behind him. Darby SLAPS, RAMS, and runs, but Liona rushes in! Darby dodges but then runs into a BODY CHECK! Liona roars, fans boo, but Liona drags Darby up. Liona puts Darby in the corner, tags Kaun, and the Gates fire each other up! Kaun whips Liona in but Darby dodges! Darby BOOTS Kaun away, springboards, but Liona POUNCES the Coffin Splash! Kaun drags Cassidy in, GUT BUSTER DROP! Nana, Cage and Swerve return to ringside, they wanna watch this in person.

But the rest of the Mogul Embassy makes their way to the ring! Swerve & Cage glare right at Darby & Cassidy, and Liona & Kaun both get up. But wait! Here comes STIIIIING! The Icon is back, and he has his baseball bat! Fans are thunderous as Sting steps into the ring and the Embassy backs off. Will Swerve’s house have to worry about the showtime?


MJF speaks.

“AEW fans, AEW fans! Oh my God, clock’s ticking and you’re running out of competition. Darby Allin, you sweet, sweet little emo b*tch. Once again, you found yourself victim to a maneuver as simple as a headlock takeover. Now if that’s not telling about my competition around here, I don’t know what is! You are running out of gladiators for me to slay, you are running out of people you could possibly claim that are better than me. And you know it. Once again, it has been made abundantly clear, and this time, in Sin City, that nobody is on the level of the Devil!” Will anyone ever exorcise MJF away from the AEW World Championship?


Tony Schiavone is once again in the ring.

He welcomes us back, and thanks San Diego for being part of this great night. But wait, here comes Hook! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, the undefeated FTW Champion, steps in the ring. Schiavone says Hook once again helped the Hardy Boyz against Ethan Page at Double or Nothing. But then, what is next for Hook? But wait, someone interrupts. It’s Jose of La Faccion Ingobernable! He has Dralistico y Preston Vance with him, and he “apologizes” for interrupting Hook’s time, but this is the only way LFI is gonna get TV time here! There are two studs here who have never been given opportunities the way Hook has.

Fans boo but Jose says they know it’s true. Rush is too dangerous to be on TV, so he isn’t here right now. Salud, Rush. But where are the fans when they need LFI? When LFI is looking for chances and they get NONE? But they’re gonna start taking opportunities! Show this perro what LFI is about! Dralistico & Vance mug Hook, but here comes JUNGLE BOY! Jack Perry has helped Hook out before, and he’s here again, with a chair! JB JAMS Dralistico, JAMS Vance, and then he SMACKS them both down! Jose sneaks up, but JB sees him first. Jose runs away into the ring, but that’s where Hook is!

Hook clinches to hit the EL CAMINO! Jose flops out of the ring, JB joins Hook in the ring, and they fist bump. Will #JungleHook reunite to shut LFI up?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee is with Saraya, Ruby Soho, and the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm. How does it feel this time around to be champion? Oh, c’mon, look at her! She’s having a great time! She has the world title, the world’s best friends, and she couldn’t be doing any better. A lot of people say she’s just very lucky, but luck’s got nothing to do with this. Toni’s been wrestling since she was 13 years old, a child really! Over half her life! That’s because she’s been all over the world, carrying everyone’s bags and doing everything she can to get to this point.

The Outcasts look around this locker room, and they see no one who could carry Toni’s bags. Ruby says Toni is being very humble. No one anywhere could match Toni’s work ethic. Toni is gracing the AEW fans with her presence during the House Rules live shows. And she’ll even defend this title. That is what a fighting champion does! Oh so humble! Saraya loves Toni so much. But really, there is really no one worthy of carrying Toni’s bags. Not at all. But they’ll keep looking out. And as for “luck,” the only lucky ones are the fans. Who will be “lucky” enough to have some #ToniTime this summer?


AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Nyla Rose!

The Galaxy’s Greatest made perhaps the greatest return possible, answering the open challenge of the cocky Jade Cargill. Not only did she end Jade’s reign, she ended the undefeated streak! But will Kris regret putting it all on the line so soon? Or will she start her own incredible reign?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Mama Statlander holds onto her baby!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two tie up. The two are in a deadlock, but then they break. Kris shoves Nyla, they tie up again, and they go around. Nyla puts Kris in a corner, the ref counts, and Nyla lets off. Kris dodges the cheap shot to fire off forearms! Nyla dodges to get some air, but Kris SHOTGUNS Nyla down! Fans fire up, Kris is after Nyla but the scoop doesn’t work. Nyla scoops Kris but she slips free to scoop again! Nyla is still really big, and she scoops Kris to SLAM her! SENTON flops as Kris moves! Kris wraps on the body scissors! Nyla endures, those knee braces are right in the ribs!

Nyla scrambles, gets the ROPEBREAK, and Kris lets go. Kris storms up but Nyla shoulders into her! And bumps her off the buckles! Kris falls and Nyla stalks her. Nyla kicks Kris around, drags her up, and brings her over to ropes. Kris fights the suplex and tries to suplex Nyla! Nyla CLUBS Kris, CLAWS her back, but Kris fights with body shots! Fans rally and Kris still tries a suplex. Nyla knees low, brings Kris around, and snap suplexes her into buckles! We see Taya Valkyrie is watching backstage, surely upset that she didn’t get the TBS title off Jade. Nyla grins as she soaks up the heat and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla taunts Kris, drags her up, and then bumps her off buckles. Nyla stomps Kris, digs her boots in, but the ref counts. Nyla has Kris on the apron before she lets off. Nyla then puts Kris on the ropes to CHOKE and even bend back! Nyla puppets Kris’ mouth, but lets off as the ref counts. Kris flounders, Nyla brings her up to suplex! Cover, ONE!! Nyla grows frustrated, but she stands on Kris before getting a leg. HALF CRAB! Kris endures, reaches out, but Nyla talks trash while she CLUBS away on the knee! Kris crawls, ROPEBREAK! Nyla lets go, Kris goes to a corner, but Nyla RAMS into her!

Nyla pulls the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Nyla lets off and Kris hobbles to another corner. Nyla is after her in the corner with body shots! Nyla then goes corner to corner to ELBOW Kris, and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Kris down with a chinlock. Kris endures the knee in the back, fans rally up, and Kris fights, only for Nyla to CLUB her in the chest! Nyla clamps onto the arms to keep Kris down, but still Kris fights. Fans rally, kris throws body shots and elbows, but Nyla CHOP BLOCKS! Kris falls, Nyla gets that leg, and has a modified Half Crab! Kris endures, so Nyla stomps away on the leg before going back to the Crab!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Kris fights with her free leg. Nyla lets go, Kris kips up, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!! Kris is still in this but Nyla runs, only to miss the splash! Kris runs to DISCUS LARIAT! Nyla stays up to Kris LARIATS again, ROCKS Nyla and ROUNDHOUSES her! Fans fire up with Kris and she runs in at the corner, UPPERCUT! Kris goes side to side, KNEE! Nyla staggers, Kris brings her in, BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Kris is surprised! But Kris pounds the mat and fans rally with her. Kris drags Nyla to a drop zone and climbs up the corner.

Kris reaches the top but Nyla trips her up! Kris hits the buckles on the way down! Nyla runs in to SPLASH! Kris sits down, Nyla calls her shot and runs again, but Kris bails out! Nyla stops the cannonball to go tot he apron, CANNONBALL to the floor! Nyla grins and she brings Kris up to RAM her into railing! Fans boo but Nyla runs in to CANNONBALL against the railing! Nyla puts Kris back in the ring, stalks her, and catches Kris’ haymaker into a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kris survives and now Nyla is surprised! Nyla drags Kris up but Kris JAWBREAKERS! Kris puts Nyla in the drop zone and goes up again!

Fans fire up as Kris aims, to 450 SPLASH!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

The Galaxy’s Greatest has her first win as champion in the books! Taya is not amused, though. Will La Wera Loca get one more shot at that title? Will the third time be the charm? Or will things not go her way now that Mama’s home?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

It’ll be regularly scheduled, 10 PM Eastern on Friday night, but it’s gonna be a CHAMPIONSHIP Friday! The AAA Mega Championship is on the line as El Hijo Del Vikingo defends against Dralistico AND Komander in a Triple Threat! Will the numbers spell disaster for Vikingo in San Diego?

Plus, the NJPW World Television Championship makes its AEW Rampage debut as Zack Sabre Jr. defends against Action Andretti!

But that’s not all! Assuming he defeats Alex Coughlin on ROH TV this week, Katsuyori Shibata will defend the ROH Pure Championship against #TAIGASTYLE, Lee Moriarty! Will The Wrestler still be the champion after this week is over?


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

Plus, after big wins from both men tonight, Orange Cassidy defends the AEW International Championship 1v1 against Swerve Strickland! Will the Mogul Embassy grab up even more gold?


Mixed Tag: Chris Jericho & Saraya VS Adam Cole & Britt Baker!

It would seem the Unsanctioned Match at Double or Nothing was not enough for anyone to end this! The Wizard & The Knight called out the Undisputed Couple for this match, and they obliged! Will Jericho & Saraya be the ones standing tall with a fireball? Or will San Diego be all about The Boom?

Fans sing Judas for Jericho, but Saraya still calls them all losers. The teams sort out and Jericho starts against Cole. Cole and Jericho fire off hands right at the bell! Jericho gets the edge, CHOPS, then CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Cole fires back, Jericho ROCKS him, then puts him in a corner, Jericho ROCKS Cole again and again, whips corner to corner, and Jericho clotheslines! Fans are torn but Saraya says they better cheer! Jericho goes back to Cole, but Cole turns things around to ROCK Jericho with forearm after forearm, then he CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS, Cole CHOPS, they CHOP back and forth!

Jericho gets the edge with those CHOPS, but Cole rakes the eyes! Saraya complains but Cole stalks Jericho. Cole stomps Jericho, digs a boot in, but lets off as the ref counts. Jericho pokes Cole in the eyes! Jericho then throws Cole out, goes out after him, and fans fire up as Jericho whips Cole into railing! Jericho puts Cole back in, stalks him to a corner and CHOPS again! Jericho whips, Cole comes back and he CLOBBERS Jericho! Jericho hurries away, Cole dares him to come back, but Jericho tags out to Saraya. Saraya dares Cole to do something, but fans fire up as Britt steps in! And she fires off on Saraya!

Saraya shoves, Britt dodges and SLINGBLADES! And NORTHERN LIGHTS! Cover, TWO! Britt CLUBS Saraya, brings her up to Alabama Lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Britt revels in the cheers and spells it out, “D! M! D!” Britt then sits Saraya up, runs, but Saraya distracts the ref so Jericho can trip Britt! Fans boo but Cole rushes Jericho! Saraya stomps Britt, the ref keeps Cole from getting at Jericho, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Saraya covers Britt, shouts at the ref, and the ref returns, TWO! Saraya drags Britt up to HEADBUTT her down! Saraya paces around Britt, drags her up, and throws her down. Saraya points to Jericho, they “tag,” and then Jericho eggs Britt on. The ref tells Jericho to get out, that’s not the kind of match this is. Saraya taunts Cole while Jericho exits, and Saraya stomps Britt. Saraya drags Britt around, puts her in the ropes, then goes to the apron to fire off knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off to step back inside and they argue. Jericho talks trash on Britt but she swipes at him! Cole protests but Saraya stomps Britt down.

Saraya drags Britt up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Saraya argues with the ref but the count was fair. Saraya drags Britt into a chinlock stretch but Britt endures. Fans rally, Britt fights up, but Saraya CLUBS her back down! Saraya brings Britt around, CLUBS her, then Saraya “tags” Jericho again. Jericho spells it out, “D! M! D!” then signals the fans can shove it! Saraya stomps Britt, Jericho shouts at Britt, and the ref keeps Cole back. Saraya stands on Britt’s hair, pulls on the arms, but lets off as the ref counts. Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya tosses Britt out. Saraya then goes out, Cole and Jericho shout at each other and the ref is distracted.

Saraya waves to the ramp, and out come the Outcasts! Ruby & Toni stomp away on Britt! Fans boo, Saraya drags Britt into the ring, and they get away with all of that! But HIKARU SHIDA is here! She SMACKS the Outcasts around with the kendo stick and fans fire up! Saraya is furious, but Britt rolls her up! TWO!! Saraya escapes and CLUBS Britt down! Jericho storms in and shouts at Britt, but Britt glares at him. Britt SLAPS Jericho, DECKS Saraya, and tags in Cole! Fans fire up as Cole rallies on Jericho with forearms! Cole whips, Jericho reverses but Cole CLOBBERS him! And ELBOW! And BOOT!

Cole rains down fists, just like at the end of their Unsanctioned match! Jericho pushes Cole away, CHOPS him, but, Cole PELES! Cole whips, Jericho holds ropes and avoids the dropkick! LIONSAULT!

Jericho throws in a chair, and even the ring bell! Cole and Britt grab those for themselves, and that makes Jericho back off. Can Cole & Britt finally move on from The Wizard and his schemes to go get themselves some gold?

My Thoughts:

A very good aftermath show for AEW after only a very good Double or Nothing. Good promos from Kris Statlander, Wardlow and MJF to follow their title wins. A little surprising that Kris had her first defense so soon but I suppose this gets it out of the way, and it gets Kris going on doing her best to match Jade’s streak. Taya watching backstage makes some sense, and I sense her turning Heel over being denied twice. Sadly, I think Taya is going to go 0-3 for the TBS Champion, because if she didn’t beat Jade, she’s not going to beat the person who beat Jade. And I do appreciate that Wardlow is calling out Luchasaurus, he’s being a proactive champion.

MJF of course isn’t, he’s just expecting AEW to find somebody. But I feel like, with Tony Khan letting us know CM Punk IS returning, that’s just the natural course of things for the world title. AEW Collision’s success is not fully dependent on CM Punk being back, but it will definitely incentivize Chicago fans to show up. But I love that there were plenty of fans who hated that news as there were who loved it in San Diego. And MJF VS Punk is an obvious route given how the Pillars he cheated at Double or Nothing are now going to other stories in the meantime. Sammy was the only absent one, but he’s surely preparing to be a parent.

Darby & Cassidy had an awesome tag match with The Gates of Agony, and I figured Darby & Cassidy would win. Swerve also won an awesome Triple Threat against Bill and Trent, and of course Swerve is moving on to a title. I feel like Swerve should be the one to dethrone Cassidy. He’s got The Mogul Embassy to help him cheat so that technically keeps Cassidy strong, and then Swerve can bring that title into a feud with Darby or in whatever finish we FINALLY get of Swerve VS Keith Lee. Then Jungle Boy returns to teaming with Hook just because there’s no other singles title open. JungleHook VS LFI is still going to be fun, and maybe we get Jungle Boy VS Rush. But honestly, I almost thought JB was gonna turn on Hook there. Heel Jack Perry taking the FTW Championship could be pretty cool.

Great promo from Bullet Club Gold and then great brawl with FTR and Starks. Starks VS White is going to end things one way or another, but I feel like it has to be White’s win. Then BCG VS FTR can be for the AEW World Tag Team Championships going into All In London. Speaking of titles, Championship Rampage is loaded, though I’m surprised there wasn’t just another Battle of the Belts special. I wonder if Battle of the Belts goes away with Collision being on Saturdays. Pretty sure all champions retain, though, because NONE of those titles are AEW property. Also, I feel that’s irresponsible to automatically say it’s Shibata VS Moriarty when Shibata VS Coughlin is airing tomorrow night on ROH.

The Acclaimed had a good promo with Renee on stage, and I figured they’d stick together and try again. They’ll probably choose a Open House Rules stipulation next time, I look forward to something wild from them. Really good promo from The Outcasts, and Storm could face just about anyone in her first defense of the world title. From how things went in the main event, pretty sure it’s Shida since she is still fighting against The Outcasts. Britt & Cole of course win against Jericho & Saraya, but that was a pretty fun Mixed Tag. And if Shida doesn’t beat Storm, I bet we get Britt VS Storm at like All Out or something.

Great opener of BCC VS Lucha Bros & Bandido, and Bryan was pretty good on commentary. I figured BCC would win, they’re going to keep things rolling from Double or Nothing. And good promo from The Elite and Dark Order, because it kept up the continuity from over the years. Hangman saying Kenny was out of the country but not in Canada totally hints at him being in Japan to reconnect with Kota Ibushi, which is definitely the next phase of this.  Elite plus Ibushi VS BCC plus Konosuke, Blood & Guts, that has to be it. And speaking of, Callis and Konosuke had a great promo, especially factoring in that nuclear Heel heat Callis has. Like, every other Heel wishes they had the level of booing, jeering and middle fingers Callis had aimed at him.

My Score: 8.7/10
