Available via AEW’s official YouTube, watch the recaps, discussion and analysis of all the action that’s about to happen on Leap Day!

 

The Buy-In begins!

Before their highly anticipated grudge match, Tony Schiavone interviews SCU backstage. Christopher Daniels is perhaps even more fired up than Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky. That’s because for the last 8 weeks, The Dark Order gives out empty promises and spreading half truths. That ends tonight! Because SCU will have the Ring General ringside to help his guys end the Dark Order once and for all! But Scorpio and Kaz feel Daniels needs to stay backstage.

What? Are they buying into the Dark Order propaganda? It’s not that, it’s just for Daniels’ best interest. His best interest is the team! But since Scorpio and Kaz aren’t budging, Daniels concedes. He will stay back, and his boys say they’ve got this. But are they simply playing into the plans of Evil Uno and Stu Grayson?

SoCal Uncensored VS The Dark Order!

SCU sees Uno and Grayson have the Beaver Boys, Alex Reynolds and John Silver, as their bodyguards again. So they punch right through them! And then we have a brawl! SCU has Dark Order on the ropes then outside of the ring but the Dark Order hits back. Kaz rams Grayson into barriers while Scorpio throws hands on Uno. Grayson gets back in the ring and Kaz follows, the bell rings and we begin!

Grayson keeps on Kaz with a rain of right forearms. “All hail!” Fans boo instead. Grayson drags Kaz up, brings him to the corner, and Uno tags in.

Uno reverses the whip but Scorpio sunset flips. Cover, TWO! Scorpio back kicks hard then snapmares to basement dropkick! Cover, ONE and Uno bails out. Grayson is up so Scorpio rocks him with a right. Scorpio brings Grayson over but Grayson resists. Kaz tags in and SCU double whips. Leap frog to the DDT! Cover, TWO! Kaz keeps his cool while flipping off the Creepers.

Chicago’s own superhero rushes the ring, dodges and decks Creepers! Grayson steps up but Cabana is ready! The two men brawl, Cabana unloads elbows, but the horde returns! They overwhelm Cabana, stomp SCU down, and smother Cabana in a corner. Cabana fights, but new music plays? The Dark Order stands down, for the Exalted One is here?!

The cloak obscures much, but it’s just Christopher Daniels in disguise! Daniels runs down and LEAPS into the ring! Now numbers are evening out as Cabana and SCU fight back! Chicago loves it as Cabana and SCU throw out Uno and Grayson. Cabana hits Silver with the Flying Apple, and then feeds him to ANGEL’S WINGS! Daniels dares the Dark Order to try something! Will Cabana stick around to fight the cult of calamity? What will the REAL Exalted One do in response to this parody?

 

Backstage interview with Jurassic Express.

Lexi Nair is with Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt and Luchasaurus to discuss what match(es) they’re pumped to see tonight. Marko, behave yourself. But there’s not much that excites Luchasaurus after living for 65 million years. But he is glad to see dino representation, and is excited to see Cody finally have it out with MJF. MJF has “tactics,” like Wardlow, the Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny, but Cody can count on Jurassic Express to keep things fair and square. Will the assist be needed against the mastermind, Maxwell Jacob Friedman?

 

AEW welcomes you to “an alternative reality.”

“Your physical matter and energy are about to take you on the journey of a lifetime as you are about to enter another dimension.” A storied friendship turned bloodthirsty feud will see a conclusion. The Elite takes on the Elite for gold, and vindication. The Natural looks to hurt the reputation of the undefeated Big Hurt in his AEW in-ring debut. A Native Beast looks to truly assert dominance. And Le Champion will finally have it out with the Maniac. Is Revolution going to witness a Paradigm Shift?

 

Dezirae Shalice sings the National Anthem.

Sammy Guevara VS Darby Allin!

The Inner Circle tried to silence the Undead Daredevil, in a literal case with the Spanish God jamming Darby’s own skateboard into his throat! But even so, Darby has been able to send messages to Sammy, using Sammy’s own cue card communication. Is the writing on the wall for Sammy?

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Hangman Page & Kenny Omega VS The Young Bucks!

The Elite is (not) fine. Hangman feels like the weak link and doesn’t like it, which is why he wanted out. But Matt and Nick Jackson seem to think Adam isn’t allowed to walk away from the group that put him on the map. And yet, they aren’t going to settle for being anything less than tag team champions. Will the Superkick Party rain on the Cowboy’s parade? Or will Hangman get help from the Cleaner in showing everyone his true worth?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and this unlikeliest of dream matches begins!

Winners: Hangman Page & Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

INCREDIBLE! The newest tag team on the block beats perhaps the best tag team in the world! Does this change the pecking order within the Elite? Does this change how the world views the tag team division of the world?

When all four men finally stand up, Matt and Nick try to talk to Omega and Page. Omega is a bit reluctant, but he still shakes hands with the Bucks because they’re still friends. However, Hangman is much more stubborn. Omega stands with the Bucks, but Hangman exits the ring. Fans think Hangman is up to something as he lingers on the apron, but he just holds the ropes open for Omega. Is the Elite still (not) fine?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Nyla Rose VS Kris Statlander!

The Native Beast felt vindicated when she finally got to be the one to dethrone Riho. However, she also felt very disrespected when no one cheered. Will Nyla force everyone to respect her “unbridled power” after dealing with the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien?

AEW World Championship: Chris Jericho w/ Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS Jon Moxley!

Speaking of that title, Y2J has been Le Champion ever since All Out in August, and with his Inner Circle by his side, he has done whatever to whoever he wants.

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (NEW AEW World Champion)

The reign of Le Champion finally ends! And now, the MOX Era begins! Moxley’s crazy like a fox and that gave him the edge against Jericho! Will things only get wilder from here?

Moxley brings out a special shirt to celebrate, and it has a picture of the world title on it, with “MOX” on it a la nWo spray paint. Mox grabs a mic to tell the fans, “Goddammit I love this sh*t!” Fans cheer because they love it, too. “And it has been one hell of a year for yours truly.” A long road to the top. Moxley says he didn’t win it. AEW belongs to the fans, so this title does, too! The wrestling fans have been driving AEW forward! A year ago, AEW said it’d bring PRO-WRESTLING back. And that is what AEW has done tonight.

This isn’t his title, but the fans’ title! The fans in Chicago, at home, and with Moxley during the ups and downs since even before AEW. “This belongs to you.” Moxley has no words to describe the gratitude he has towards the AEW Family, namely the fans. So with nothing else to say, “it feels like it’s beer o’clock.” The music plays but Moxley says wait a minute, he’s making this up as he goes. Moxley reminds us that he is a fighting champion. “Line ’em up, I’ll knock ’em down!” But right now, Moxley’s going to knock back some whiskey! Who is going to line up and challenge the craziest, toughest, meanest fighting champion AEW or any promotion has ever seen?

 


 

My Thoughts:

What a great show! Not everything was perfect, but it’s really hard to be consistently amazing like AEW has been with how Dynamite is every week. The one weak spot tonight would be the Women’s World Championship match, only because it seems like Kris and Nyla weren’t sure about their match-up for much of it. They’re both tall, strong women and Kris certainly has athleticism on her side, but it just seemed like they didn’t know how to mesh. It was pretty clear Nyla was going to win, though, with a handful more established Faces than Heels right now.

The Buy-In specifically is on a streak for AEW PPV’s. They always give us a great kickoff show since they know that is the free-for-everyone part of the broadcast, making it worth everyone’s time. SCU VS Dark Order was a really good match, and I appreciated the Exalted One tease where Daniels was wearing a cloak as a reference to the story of how he was almost the “Higher Power” in the Ministry of Darkness story. In the end, Dark Order won to stay strong towards that story point, but they’re also doing a great job of playing around with it until they can have their desired Exalted One of Matt Hardy. At the same time, I kinda hope it’s someone else, just to subvert the expectations we’ve all put on that story.

Great grudge matches tonight. Hager VS Dustin was a really good main show opener, and I like that Mrs. Hager came into play in some ways. Naturally Hager won because you can’t just squash a legit amateur wrestler who is also doing very well in MMA, that has also been booked as a mean sonovagun like Hager has. But to keep the Inner Circle even, it was good to see Darby Allin win. I hope he has story with Hager next. Cody VS MJF was a great match. The only thing bad from all that was Cody’s odd tattoo placement and Downstait not sounding even half as good live as they do on the soundtrack. Yikes. But I figured MJF would cheat to win, so let’s continue this feud into that Blood & Guts special! Though, isn’t the match a bit too much like WarGames?

The world tag title match was amazing! Which is natural from four members of The Elite being in one match. It is huge for Hangman to be the one to carry to load and finish the Bucks off alone. The tease of a turn on Omega was very well done, I really did think he was going to Buck Shot Omega. But we can stretch this story for the Spring and Summer because it is so full of layers. Jericho VS Moxley was also great, and Moxley winning is incredible. His fake out was a bit odd, but I guess a blood pouch explains why the eye patch was bulging. Moxley’s promo to celebrate and thank was really good, and if there’s one thing everyone can agree on for AEW, it’s that they aren’t afraid to call this pro-wrestling and NOT sports entertainment.

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW TNT Championship: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ QTV VS Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes!

The Book of Hobbs says he had Aaron Solo steal the belt before QT helped him steal the title! But will karma come back to bite him? Or will Hobbs power through the Firebird?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s time to for a Rampage!

Fans rally as Hobbs talks some smack on Fenix. Fenix and Hobbs step to each other and Fenix goes head to chest. But Hobbs shoves Fenix down! Fenix kips up, runs in, but gets run over! QT & Solo are amused while Hobbs eggs Fenix on. Hobbs then drags Fenix up with both hands, but Fenix breaks free to get around. Fenix waistlocks but Hobbs breaks free. Hobbs whips, Fenix handsprings over the sweep and fans fire up! Hobbs runs in, Fenix dodges again, and springboards, but he just bounces off Hobbs’ body! Fans boo but Hobbs runs, only for Fenix to dump him out! Fenix then DIVES! Direct hit but Hobbs stays up!

Fenix gets back in the ring, DIVES again, but Hobbs is still up! So Fenix aims, slingshots and QUEBRADAS! Down goes Hobbs! Hobbs gets up and hurries into the ring, but Fenix pursues. Fenix leaps, but into Hobbs’ arms! Hobbs pops Fenix up, and he POWERSLAMS Fenix down! Cover, TWO! Fenix is tougher than that but Solo & QT are still amused. Hobbs goes out after Fenix and he RAMS him into barriers! Hobbs talks trash on the fans but the fans boo back. Hobbs drags Fenix around, stomps him, then drags Fenix up again. Hobbs RAMS Fenix into more barriers! Fans rally for Fenix but Hobbs goes into the ring.

Hobbs kneels to soak up the heat, and he smirks while Alex checks on Fenix. Hobbs goes out after Fenix, CLUBS him, then throws Fenix into the ring. Hobbs says, “Who’s the champ!?” Solo says, “You the champ!” Hobbs hauls Fenix up, whips him hard into the corner, and Fenix bounces off buckles to hit the mat. Hobbs looms over Fenix, stands on him, and the ref reprimands and counts. Hobbs steps off, whips Fenix hard the other way, and Fenix again bounces off buckles. Fans chant “QT SUCKS!” but QT says to ignore that. Hobbs grins as he watches Fenix writhe. Hobbs looms over Fenix, and CHOPS him in the shoulder!

Hobbs then clamps a big claw into the shoulder! Fenix endures, kicks around, but Hobbs lets off to bring Fenix up. Hobbs suplexes, holds Fenix up, Harley Cameron gets a pic, and Hobbs SLAMS Fenix down! Cover, TWO! Hobbs clamps onto Fenix with the shoulder claw again as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Fenix endures, fights up, but Hobbs throws down elbows! Hobbs digs his hand into the shoulder again but Fenix still endures. Hobbs adds on a chinbar, then he CLUBS Fenix down. Fenix goes to the apron, and Hobbs stands on his head! The ref reprimands and counts, Hobbs steps off and Fenix flops to the floor. Hobbs argues with the ref, and QT sucker punches Fenix! Alex protests but the ref missed it all. Hobbs goes out after Fenix, high-fives Harley, and he storms up on Fenix to throw knees. Hobbs POSTS Fenix, and Fenix goes tumbling away! Rampage returns to single picture as Solo laughs at Fenix’s pain.

Hobbs grabs Fenix’s face and shouts at him that this is what he gets for answering the Open Challenge. The ref reprimands, Hobbs lets off and goes into the ring. Fenix drags himself up but Hobbs brings him into the ring. Fenix flops over and Hobbs toys with him. Fans boo but Hobbs taunts Fenix, “You wanna be champ?!” Fans rally for Fenix but Hobbs HIP DROPS him down! Hobbs clamps onto the shoulder again, but Fenix fights up. Fenix throws elbows and gets free! Hobbs grabs Fenix but Fenix PELES! And kips up to BOOT, mule kick, and SCREW HIGH KICK! Fenix knuckle locks, CHOPS, and goes up and up!

Fenix jumps around, but Hobbs trips him up! Hobbs YANKS Fenix off the ropes to POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and QT is surprised, but Hobbs digs his forearms in for another cover. TWO, and Fenix crawls to a corner. Hobbs kicks Fenix, talks smack, and paces around to soak up the heat. Fans rally and Fenix CHOPS! Hobbs snarls, but he runs into a BOOT! Fenix then dodges to JUMP SOBAT! Fans fire up and Fenix feeds off that. But Hobbs stops the whips, swings, but Fenix waistlocks! Hobbs is too big to lift, and Hobbs elbows free. Hobbs snarls, whisp Fenix, but Fenix goes up and over! GERMAN SUPLEX!!

Fans are thunderous but QT is freaking out! Fenix covers, TWO!! Hobbs tosses Fenix away with that kick-out, but he staggers up. Into the SOMERSAULT CUTTER!! Cover, TWO!! Hobbs is still in this but Fenix crawls his way to a corner. Fans rally, Hobbs rises, and Fenix climbs up! TIGHTROPE PENALTY KICK! Hobbs wobbles and fans fire up more! Fenix shakes out the cobwebs, goes up the corner again, and leaps over Hobbs! Hobbs runs back in to POUNCE Fenix into a corner!! Then DEADLIFT SPINEBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!?!?

Hobbs whips, Fenix tiger feints to HEEL KICK! But Hobbs DECKS Fenix! Fenix kips up to SUPERKICK!! Both men are down and fans are thunderous! Fenix drags Hobbs to a drop zone, he goes up the corner, and he FROG SPLASHES!! Cover, TWO!!! Hobbs is still in this but Fenix doesn’t lose focus. Fenix waits on Hobbs to sit up, and he SUPERKICKS! And then SUPERKICKS! Hobbs wobbles, runs in, but Fenix dodges to SUPERKICK again! Hobbs drops to a knee, Fenix runs in, SOMERSAULT- SPINEBUSTER!! Hobbs rolls Fenix through to get him in the torture rack! TOWN BUSINESS!! Cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Hobbs, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

Alex checks on Fenix, but Hobbs storms up to him. Hobbs brings down the straps, but he says it’s okay. QT turns Alex around for a DIAMOND CUTTER! Fans boo as QT raises Hobbs’ hand in victory. Will QTV help make the Book of Hobbs the story of the year?

 

Adam Cole speaks.

“March 29th will go down as the most important day in my entire life. Not only will March 29th be the debut of AEW All Access, but even more importantly to me, after nine months, I make my return to AEW. And I know that my opponent is going to give me the fight of my life. And that’s good, because I am looking for a fighter. I’m looking for a technician. I’m looking for someone to push me and remind me who the hell I am. So on March 29th, I show the world how damn good Adam Cole Baybay is, and nobody is gonna stop me.”

 

Stu Grayson speaks.

“Jon Moxley, up until our match tonight on Dynamite, everybody was asking me the same thing. ‘Stu, are you back? Are you back with AEW?’ And I just didn’t know what to answer. I just didn’t. Until now. Now that I am in the hospital because you and BCC gave a concussion to my brother, Evil Uno. So now I’m thinking, Mox, now I’m thinking, ‘Yeah, now I am back.’ You wanted Stu Grayson, you got him! Next week, I want you, Mox. I want you in a one on one match. And I swear to god, I will break you.” The BCC are #ForgedByCombat, but will the Maniac be ready for someone born and bred for combat?

 

Taya Valkyrie VS Ava Lawless!

La Wera Loca is now All Elite! She wants after #ThatBitch, Jade Cargill, but will her first match in AEW be ruined by “The Hellion?”

The bell rings, the two approach, and Taya gets around to waistlock and SLAM Ava down. Ava scrambles to a corner, Taya runs in to ELBOW her! And then LARIAT! Fans fire up with Taya as she sits Ava down. Taya goes corner to corner, slaps her thighs then her head, and comes back to METEORA! Taya says that’s why she’s La Wera Loca! Taya CHOPS Ava against the ropes, then CHOPS again! Taya whips, Ava reverses and dodges, but the SPEAR hits all the same! Taya drags Ava up, chicken wings, looks like Jaded but this is THE ROAD TO VALHALLA!! Cover, Taya wins!

Winner: Taya Valkyrie, by pinfall

Speaking of Jade, she, Leila Grey and Mark Sterling are on the stage. Sterling is taking notes, maybe drafting up a lawsuit. Will Jade have no choice but to take on one crazy Canadian?

 

Stokely Hathaway is in training.

Matt Hardy tells Stokely that he, Isiah Kassidy & Ethan Page are gonna get him ready for Hook. Hook’s a wrestling machine, a killing machine. He could break Stokely’s arms, legs, back, and neck. Hook could snuff out your life! Does Stokely want that? No! Then they’re gonna get him ready. Just trust them. The montage shows Stokely is off to a rough start, and a rough middle. And his technique to escape a half nelson is to tickle Isiah. But he seems to take scoop slams well. Hardy thinks they need about four or five more, to really toughen Stokely up. Hook is also a suplex machine. Wait, why’re they doing scoops then!?

Stokely runs up the bleachers, and he gets a cookie for his reward! That’s a good-ass cookie. But will any of this help Stokely against the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?

 

Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker VS The Bollywood Boyz!

Don’t touch that dial and stay on ’em! It’s a battle of Canadians as the duo formerly known as 2Point0 take on some old frenemies from back in the day. Will Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange prove they’re still great sports… enner-tay-ners? Or will there be lights, camera and Bollywood action in Winnipeg?

The teams sort out and Parker starts against Harv Sihra. The two circle, feel things out, but Menard takes a swipe. Harv is distracted and that allows Parker to clobber him from behind! The JAS mug Harv, Gurv runs in but he gets beat down, too! Parker KNEES Gurv out of the ring, then Menard UPPERCUTS Harv. The JAS double whip Harv to ropes, but Harv holds ropes to stop himself. Menard runs in but into an UPPERCUT! Parker runs in but into a LARIAT! Harv UPPERCUTS again, tags Gurv, and the brothers set Parker up for a FLYING UPPERCUT SPINEBUSTER! Parker bails out and fans boo.

Parker is flustered but the fans rally for “BOLLYWOOD! BOLLYWOOD!” Gurv runs and slides out, but Parker slides in! Gurv grabs Parker’s legs, but Parker BOOTS Gurv away. Parker tags Menard before Gurv slides back in, and Parker dodges to set Gurv up for Menard’s LARIAT! Menard soaks up the cheers and jeers, then he drags Gurv. Menard bumps Gurv off buckles, CHOPS, but Gurv CHOPS back! Menard ROCKS Gurv, bumps him off buckles and tags in Parker. The JAS mugs Gurv and then Parker brings Gurv up. Parker snap suplexes, stomps, then mockingly applauds at Harv while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Parker “kicks dirt” at Gurv while staring down Harv. Parker drags Gurv up, tags Menard, and the JAS mug Gurv again. Menard throws Gurv out hard, then he taunts Harv. The ref reprimands Menard but Parker stomps away on Gurv! Menard then goes out to bring Gurv up and throw him into barriers! Menard soaks up the cheers and jeers before he puts Gurv back in. Menard drags Gurv back, tags in Parker, and they stomp away on Gurv. Then they split the wishbone! Gurv writhes, but Parker keeps him from Harv. Parker stands Gurv up, whips him to ropes, but Gurv kicks back! And LARIATS!

Both men down, the fans rally up, but Parker anchors Gurv with a toehold! Tag to Menard and he drops an elbow! Cover, ONE!! Gurv hangs tough but Menard covers again, TWO! Menard SLAPS Gurv around, CHOKES him in the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Menard mockingly kisses Gurv’s forehead before he tags Parker. The JAS mugs Gurv more, drag him up, but Gurv shoulders into Parker! Slingshot sunset flip! TWO! LAIRAT from Gurv! Both men are down again and fans rally up again! Parker tags Menard, the JAS drags Gurv up, and double suplexes! The JAS is in control as Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Gurv turns things around on the JAS! Hot tag to Harv! Harv rallies on the JAS, big elbows and clotheslines all around! RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP for Menard, then an atomic drop for Parker! WHEEL KICK takes down Parker! The JAS end up in opposite corners, Harv CHOPS Parker then whips him. Parker reverses, Menard drop toeholds, and they bring back the BOOYAH ELBOW! Gurv returns, but he runs into TWO FOR THE SHOW! The double flapjack onto buckles wipes Gurv out! Menard tags Parker, they drag Harv up, DOUBLE IMPALER DDT!! Cover, the JAS wins!

Winners: Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker, by pinfall

Menard & Parker win the long-awaited sequel from their Cruiserweight days, and they SCISSOR FINGER to call out The Acclaimed! Will Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn have something to say on Dynamite next Wednesday?

 

AEW shares footage from earlier this week.

Don Callis has a camera crew and a taiko drummer to greet Konosuke Takeshita. Konosuke asks what’s going on while he’s given a bouquet of flowers. Callis says, “Look at the pageantry!” Konosuke says that was pretty cool. Callis says this is what Konosuke gets in Winnipeg and everywhere else, when he’s associated with Don Calls. They shake, and then Callis brings Konosuke in for a hug. This is great, right? Welcome to Winnipeg! Fans applaud, and Konosuke is admittedly flattered. But will all this special treatment convince the Future of Wrestling to join Callis’ stable?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

It is a crossover dream match as Kenny Omega takes on AAA’s El Hijo del Vikingo! The current AAA Mega Champion is an incredible high-flyer and is certainly leading the way of a new generation in lucha libre. But will he make an impression when he takes on the Best Bout Machine?

Plus, on top of Moxley VS Grayson and the No Disqualification match of Hook VS Stokely, Skye Blue is coming after The Outcasts! She takes on Toni Storm 1v1, but will Saraya & Ruby Soho make sure the “entitled rookie” doesn’t make it out of Dynamite in one piece?

 

The Gunns speak.

Colten Gunn welcomes us to “crappy Winnipeg, but guess what? You get to see The Gunns check into our suite because we are the champs, of course.” Austin is all fired up, but then he tells Top Flight to carry their things. Oh, oops, sorry! They aren’t valets! This is the second best brother tag team in AEW. Colten says Austin’s right! Darius & Dante say okay, that’s funny. Fans of the Young Bucks, right? What? N-No, that’s not what they meant. Oh, then the Lucha Brothers? Uh, no, not them, either. So the Hardy Boyz? NO! The number one brother team is THEM! The Gunns! Oh, really? That’s funny.

Just like them leaving their bags here with Top Flight, but not the belts. Because that’s because they know if the Gunns ever took on Top Flight, Top Flight would “valet” those belts, too. Oh, yeah? Top Flight thinks they’d win? Then how about this? Next week on Dynamite, they put the AEW World Tag Team Championships on the line! Then you can try to “valet” them. Top B*TCHES! The Gunns head out, but uh, they still left their bags. Dante & Darius take those away, but will they soon take away the gold?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage next week!

Rampage will be on a different night next week, so mark your calendars for March 25th, 10 PM Eastern!

 

Excalibur hypes up the main event.

“Three teams in the main event, intent on leaving Winnipeg the AEW World Trios Champions. It was an exciting, brutal match, but it was a match that saw the House of Black retain their titles. In the midst of the melee that occurred after the bell, a war continued to rage between the Jericho Appreciation Society and the House of Black. And as a result, our main event, Daniel Garcia goes one on one with Brody King.” Mark Henry adds it’s time for the main event! But will the Dragonslayer be able to bring down the House of Black’s tattooed titan?

Daniel Garcia w/ Chris Jericho VS Brody King w/ Julia Hart!

The bell rings and then Garcia bails out. Fans boo but Garcia and Jericho soak up the heat. They hug, and Jericho shows off his custom Winnipeg Jets jersey, but then Brody storms out after Garcia. Garcia hurries away, slides into the ring, and Brody gets in the ring. Garcia just bails right back out! Fans boo and Brody paces around, but Jericho applauds the strategy. Brody waits on Garcia, but then storms out after him again. Garcia keeps up the cat ‘n’ mouse game, slides back into the ring, and Brody slides in. Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Garcia fires off fast hands but Brody TOSSES Garcia into a corner! And then SPLASHES!

Brody whips corner to corner, runs in but Garcia dodges. Garcia fires off hands, but Brody DECKS him! Fans rally up, Brody drags Garcia up and CHOPS! Fans rally while Garcia bails out again. Jericho checks Garcia, that chop already made his chest red. Garcia hurries away, but then Julia is there! She stares Garcia down, but Garcia tries to put on the charm with a little dance. Brody storms up behind Garcia, turns him around and CHOPS him again! Garcia falls at Julia’s feet and she smiles. Brody drags Garcia up to RAM him into barriers! Fans rally up, Brody stands Garcia up and CHOPS him again!

Garcia staggers away, face wincing with pain, but Brody throws him into more barriers! Brody confiscates the chair from security, makes Garcia take a seat, and Winnipeg hoots and barks with Brody. Brody runs to CROSSBODY Garcia into the barriers! Fans lose their minds and the ref checks Garcia. Somehow, Garcia is still in this, and Brody drags him up to CHOP again! Garcia staggers away and Brody keeps after him, to RAM him into the steel steps! Fans rally, Brody runs back in, but Garcia drop toeholds Brody into the steps! Brody bounces off the steel and Garcia manages to put his dukes up, as Rampage goes picture in picture.

The ref checks Brody, and he’s somehow okay to continue. Garcia crawls into the ring to let the count handle this. Jericho coaches Garcia while Julia checks Brody. Brody shakes out the cobwebs, Garcia wants the count to go faster, but Brody is in before 10. Garcia stomps away on Brody at the ropes and he fires up now! Garcia drags Brody up, fires off forearms, then digs his knee in. The ref counts, Garcia lets off at 4, then stands on Brody to hyper stomp away! Garcia hops off as the ref counts again, and Garcia high-fives Jericho. Garcia goes back to Brody, but Brody CHOPS! And CHOPS! But Garcia BOOTS him down!

Garcia digs his boot in again, lets off as the ref counts, and Garcia does his dance. Garcia runs side to side to BOOT WASH Brody! Garcia says that’s it! He’s beat Brody! But Garcia still has to drag Brody out, only for Brody to kick at him from below! Garcia holds onto a foot until Brody BOOTS him in the face! Garcia staggers to ropes, Brody runs in, but into a drop toehold! Brody hits ropes, and Garcia CHOKES him! Garcia even claws Brody’s face! The ref reprimands, Garcia lets off, and he steps on Brody’s back. And then steps on him again! Brody just gets annoyed as Garcia keeps stepping on him.

Garcia does his dance, turns to step on Brody again, but Brody sits up! Garcia can’t push Brody down, so he KNEES away on his side! Brody just gets mad! Garcia throws haymakers, but those only give Brody power! Rampage returns to single picture, Garcia keeps throwing hands, but Brody roars! Garcia runs, into the BLACK HOLE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Garcia survives but Brody drags him up! PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO?! Garcia survives and fans fire up, but Brody snarls. Brody puts Garcia in a corner, CHOPS, and Garcia seems ready to cry. Brody stands Garcia up to CHOP him again! Even Jericho felt that one.

Fans hoot and bark with Brody again, and he goes corner to corner to CANNONBALL! Brody drags Garcia to the cover, ROPEBREAK! Brody miscalculated and Garcia survives! Brody drags Garcia back to center, but Garcia fights the lift! Fans rally, Garcia CLUBS the legs and he drags Brody down. Garcia fires off knees on the calves and ankles! Then he clamps on a SLEEPER! Brody fights up, but he starts fading! Brody keeps fighting, he has Garcia as a backpack and he RAMS him into buckles! But Garcia holds on! Brody RAMS Garcia again, but Garcia still has the sleeper! So Brody THROWS Garcia off him!

Brody sputters as he goes back to the corner and fans rally behind him. Garcia stands, into the DISCUS LARIAT from Brody!! Brody says this is the end and Julia has an evil little smile. Brody drags Garcia up, crucifix rack, but Garcia fights free! Garcia dodges in the corner, rolls Brody up, TWO!! Brody escapes, but Garcia has the legs! Garcia manages to turn Brody for the WALLS OF JERICHO!! Jericho and Winnipeg cheer him on, but Brody endures! Brody fights around, crawls his way over, but Garcia sits deep! Brody still fights, and makes his way to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Garcia lets off at 4.

The ref argues with Garcia, and Jericho CLOBBERS Brody with Floyd the Baseball Bat! Garcia then clamps on a RINGS OF SATURN!! Brody’s arm drops once! Then twice! Then three times! GARCIA WINS!!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

JAS should stand for “Jericho Always Steals (the victory!” Because that’s what Jericho just did for Garcia! The ref questions Jericho, but Jericho defends his innocence. Will the House of Black make sure the sports entertainers pay for these transgressions?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here, even though we had to wait for basketball to finish up before it. Great opener out of the TNT Championship match, and naturally Hobbs retains in his first defense. And of course QT cheats to help Hobbs, even though he shouldn’t even need that. Hobbs’ story is still connected to Wardlow’s, so it won’t be until those two have a rematch that Hobbs loses this title. They’re gonna boost his win-loss record through the “House Rules” house show tour, it seems, as he’s defending this title against Christopher Daniels, despite Daniels needing to also be strong because of his ROH run.

Of course Taya wins her AEW in-ring debut, and of course Jade and Sterling show up to watch in person. I can already predict Sterling is going to draw up a frivolous lawsuit saying Taya can’t use her chicken wing facebuster, Road to Valhalla, because it is exactly the same move as Jade’s chicken wing facebuster, The Jaded. I bet Taya beats Leila in a tune-up that also counts as fighting the lawsuit, and so it’ll come down to who can hit the chicken wing facebuster first to win the TBS Championship. And after 54 wins over her two year career, Jade can lose to someone as well-known and established as Taya without being hurt, and Jade can finally move on to the women’s world title.

Good revisit of Ever-Rise VS Bollywood Boys, and I figured Menard & Parker would win to then also call out The Acclaimed. I bet Caster is working on his diss track for Menard & Parker right now to throw it at them the next time they meet. Decent segment with Callis and Konosuke, and of course Callis pours on the Japanese culture. Konosuke’s choice can still work either way, but fans really like Konosuke so I would think he stays a Face by rejecting the invitation to join up. And while such a story is beneath Omega, I wouldn’t mind if he had a small moment in this story since he was the one who brought Konosuke into AEW to begin with.

Speaking of Omega, great match coming up for him and El Hijo del Vikingo, that is gonna be awesome. Good promo from Gunns and Top Flight, especially with how Top Flight rightfully had three brother teams easily better than Austin & Colten. But Austin & Colten are totally going to cheat to beat Top Flight and retain the titles since their story is with FTR. Great promo from Grayson to call out Moxley, and it sounded very John Wick with that whole, “I’m thinking I’m back!” Moxley VS Grayson is going to be awesome, and will give Hangman a reason to come out and confront Moxley again since there’s still a lot going on there.

The one point of disappointment is that Mark Henry’s role is reduced even further. He didn’t get to welcome us back from break, and his line was trimmed down to just the latter half. But good vignette with narration from Excalibur to make up for it. And great main event, where I should’ve known Jericho would cheat to help Garcia win. Oddly enough, The House of Black will end up the Faces in this story since the JAS will be doing all the Heel tactics, and they could have quite the feud going towards Double or Nothing.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

It’s time for MJF’s “Re-Bar Mitzvah!”

Justin Roberts begins by saying, “In the tradition of his forefathers, but better, please welcome the Bar Mitzvah Man, the AEW World Champion, MJF.” Fans boo as the Devil of AEW’s music hits and four young ladies accompany him out to the ring. MJF has them each kiss him on the cheek, but then gets a big kiss on the lips from the fourth one. MJF then gets in the ring, the ladies are dismissed and the blue and white streamers fly. MJF gets the music and has them cut his music. Fans are torn, many boo but many also still cheer him on. MJF says, “Now I know you Canadians aren’t very bright. I mean, for crying out loud, you folks used to think Bret Hart was actually entertaining.”

All the fans boo that, but MJF says, “No offense but I think we all know Shawn was much better.” But allow him to remind us why we’re here. We’re here to celebrate the most important day in recorded human history: MJF’s birthday. And in his religion, which is the only religion that matters, Judaism–boo all you want but they’re the chosen people, it’s just a fact–but under the eyes of his Lord, when a boy turns into a man, he hits 13 and that is when he is Bar Mitzvah’d. Now, MJF already had a Bar Mitzvah, the theme was “Maximania” and he lost his “V-card,” “It was sick, dude.”

But here’s why they’re having a Re-Mitzvah. When MJF tapped out “your boy,” Bryan Danielson, to become the undisputed best pro-wrestler in the world, to go on to retain the most important title in all of pro-wrestling, The Triple B, MJF is no longer merely a man. Now, he is IRONMAN! And to celebrate, hit the music! The Hava Nagila! Fans clap along and a chair is brought out! They dance around, MJF sits, and the chair is lifted up! But wait! Here comes Jungle Boy! Fans fire up as Jack Perry makes his way out, and the dancing stops. JB sees MJF’s Shazam cake then gets in the ring.

Fans fire up for “Jungle Boy! Jungle Boy!” as he gets the mic. But then Sammy Guevara makes his way out! The Spanish God walks down the ramp while MJF puts on a fuzzy Burberry patterned bucket hat. Sammy looks at the cake, too, but MJF shouts, “Don’t you touch that!” Sammy soaks up the heat from Winnipeg before he gets in the ring. Sammy has his own mic, and he tells “Max, oh, Max.” But wait! DARBY ALLIN makes his way out! Fans fire up even more, we’ve got all four Young Pillars of AEW are in the ring at the same time! MJF gets pissed and shouts to cut the music! But Winnipeg is thunderous for “DARBY! DARBY!”

MJF tells them no no no no no! They are RUINING his Re-Mitzvah! What the hell do they want? They all say, “I want a title match!” Fans fire up for that! MJF laughs and says that was cute and all, but let’s get real. JB says, “Shut up, Max.” The last time they went 1v1 was Double or Nothing 2020, the very first Pandemic Era PPV, no fans in the crowd. JB and MJF went back and forth for almost 20 minutes in that Florida heat. Until eventually, MJF cheated, as always, and then won. Fans boo MJF but MJF just shrugs. After that, their lives went in very different directions. MJF was handed every opportunity in the book. As for JB, he wrestled on Dark.

MJF has never had a match on Dark, huh? The others have. MJF has never been on Elevation, or even on Rampage! He just gets to walk around and do whatever the hell he wants. And it’s crazy to JB because there is an entire locker room, men AND women, who bust their asses every week! And they maybe get to get sixty seconds on Dynamite,  maybe. But they all have to sit back there and watch MJF take 20 minutes to do the same “hokey bullsh*t” he’s been doing the past four YEARS! Fans cheer that and JB says this entire place revolves around MJF. And the first step in changing that is taking that world title!

Fans chant “HOKEY BULLSH*T!” But MJF says, “You wanna know the truth? This company does revolve around me, because unlike you, you and you, and all those boys in the back, I’m actually a star!” But now Sammy tells MJF to shut up! “You shut the hell up before I turn this Re-Bar Mitzvah into a re-circumcision!” MJF is stunned hearing that. Sammy says MJF talks too much, and has done that his whole life, his whole career. He literally talked his way into the door here. He kissed ass, lied and cheated to get where he is. But you know what Sammy had to do to get here? He had to grind on the indies for 10 PLUS YEARS!

Sammy had to work at Whataburger, and at Subway, every odd job, you name it, he did it! Fans cheer that! Sammy says that even then, “You look at me, you SOB,” when Sammy finally did get here, he was told he was only supposed to be the Inner Circle’s jobber. He was only supposed to be the bump guy for Jericho. But he overcame every obstacle that “they” put on me and he became a champion, THREE TIMES OVER! See, Max, Sammy isn’t like you. He’s never had “the machine” pushing him, and he never needed it! He had himself. Sammy got Sammy here, and he’ll get Sammy to the world title.

So whether MJF likes it or not, or whether these “dumbass Canadians” like it or not, Sammy Guevara is gonna be a world champion. Because he’s the Best Ever, and MJF knows it! MJF says that was cute, Sammy copying his catchphrase and all. MJF appreciates the fact Sammy took all this time out of his busy schedule getting into brawls in the back with people to do this. But now Darby tells MJF to shut up! His turn! “Hold your applause until after I’m done, please.” Darby says in 2013, he was going to film school and he turned in this movie. His teacher told him he was gonna have to change everything in it. The school does not accept this kind of movie.

Darby looked at her and said, “I’d rather just drop out of school then change a single thing.” So that day, he DID drop out of school. That was a blessing in disguise because it gave him the balls to do something he never thought was possible, and that was become a pro-wrestler. Fans cheer that, and Darby says it was his first day at the Buddy Wayne Academy and he remembers walking in and saying to himself, “You’re gonna make it as Darby Allin, or you’re gonna fail as Darby Allin, but you ain’t gonna change a single thing.” Fans cheer that, too.

Darby says fast forward all these years later, he’s in Tony Khan’s office, and he tells Tony, “Maybe I am the worst businessman in this whole entire place, because there will never be a bidding war for Darby Allin. Because AEW gives me something no amount of money can afford me, and that is the opportunity to just let me be me. The biggest problem, listen to this. The biggest problem I have with this whole entire company is you got grown ass wrestlers in the back going on Twitter, ‘I’m not happy! I’m upset! I wanna out of my contract if I don’t get what I want~!’ And that includes YOU, our world champion, with his own bidding war of 2024 crap!

“See Max, AEW means a whole lot more to me than it ever did you. That is exactly why I should be world champion. And you know what I’m gonna do if you don’t give me a championship match, right? You know what I’m gonna do. I’m just gonna go complain about it on Twitter. No, seriously, I’m gonna beat your face in with my skateboard, and I’m gonna give you a headlock takeover!” MJF is really mad now! He has had enough of all of this! Do they understand him! MJF takes off the sunglasses, and we see the black bags under his eyes and red spot in one! Darby says MJF looks like sh*t! Put the glasses back on.

MJF says fine, we’ve got “Jungle Jabroni, Dangerous Darb the Incel Skateboarding Mime, and Sammy ‘in about seven months, I’m gonna propose to a new girl’ Guevara!” Even JB thought that was a good one. Sammy tells MJF that’s funny, since uh, didn’t his fiancé leave him? Oh, so we’re making burns at MJF’s Re-Mitzvah? Y’all got MJF mashookenah up in this B! Okay! Hey, hey, Jungle had Christian. Sammy has Jericho. Darby has Sting. But y’know who MJF has? NOBODY! Because guess what? He didn’t need to be enrolled into AEW Daddy Daycare! MJF has been ready since day ONE!

And that is precisely why, as sick as it makes him now, these four ARE the Pillars of AEW! MJF is not afraid to admit that they are the past, present and future of pro-wrestling. However, MJF is the only pillar who can keep this place up, and that’s a fact. He has beaten every single one of them in singles competition, and they think they deserve a shot at the world title? No. They don’t even deserve to sniff the Triple B. So they are gonna leave since none of them were invited, and then MJF is gonna eat his cake, because he deserves it. “Thank you, screw you, bye.” He SLAPS JB! So JB CLOBBERS MJF! But Sammy KNEES JB!

Darby and Sammy fire off on each other! MJF stands up on the apron, but Darby and Sammy knock him off and onto the cake!! MJF, the cake and the table go falling over! That suit is ruined, and so is the party! Fans chant “You Deserve It!” but MJF is furious as he gets up and storms away. Will the other three pillars bring MJF down so that someone else can stand atop AEW?

Juice Robinson speaks.

“Everybody wants to know why I laid out Ricky Starks with the Left Hand, and then planted his head into the mat. Instead of, ‘Why, Juice, why? How could you do that to the beloved Ricky Starks?’ It should be, ‘What’re you gonna do about Juice Robinson walking down to the ring, knocking the taste outta your mouth and then planting your surgically repaired neck–Oh yeah, I remember–into the mat?'” Juice knows what Ricky’s gonna do: JACK DIDDLY SQUAT!! The Booster fired the first shot, but will the Absolute have the last laugh?

 

AEW TBS Championship Canadian Open Challenge: Jade Cargill w/ Leila Grey VS ???

Undefeated at 53-0, the champion feels she’s beaten everyone there is to beat in the United States of America. But now that AEW is in Canada, she wants the best the True North has to offer! Will #ThatBitch stay undefeated? Or will this be the night her streak ends?

So who stepped up? It’s Nicole Matthews, a four-time Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW) Women’s Champion! She’s elite, but is she all elite? The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Canada’s best is good enough!

The bell rings and Jade dares Nicole to take a shot. Nicole isn’t taking that seriously, but then Jade pie faces her! Jade eggs Nicole on so Nicole fires off forearms! Nicole whips, Jade reverses and kicks low! Jade whips, then BOOTS Nicole down! “This is my competition!?” Jade chicken wings to hit Nicole with JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

54-0 as easy as that, and now Renee Paquette steps into the ring to interview Jade. She’s still undefeated, she issued an Open Challenge to all of Canada, and she ran through Nicole Matthews. What level of competition is Jade looking for at this point? Isn’t Renee from Canada? Jade corners Renee but Renee says she’s just a reporter! Fans boo but Jade snatches the mic. “Is that it? Is that all you have to offer, Canada?” Fans boo but Jade smiles. Wait. Is that…? TAYA VALKYRIE!? Impact’s Wera Loca is now here in AEW! And Winnipeg fires up to see the Crazy Canadian make her way to the ring.

Taya steps to Jade, the two stare down and talk some trash, and fans are loving this! Leila wants to get in the way but Jade moves her aside. Jade holds up the belt, Taya nods, and Jade leaves. Leila sucker punches, but Taya ROCKS Leila! Taya chicken wings Leila to give her JADED!! Jade is pissed but Mark Sterling rushes out to stop her from going after Taya now. The collision is happening down the line, will Taya finally be the one to make Jade the former TBS Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

Tony Schiavone is with The Absolute to get his response to Juice’s comments and actions. “It’s real easy to attack a guy from behind, isn’t it, Juice? And I heard what you had to say. You’re jealous because I’m getting the so-called attention. Wow. Good. I deserve it. What the hell have you done here? You’re part of the Bullet Club. That was relevant back in 2015. But this is 2023, alright? Maybe you should stand on your own two feet and do something  for yourself.” Starks says, “You’d think I would learn by now, dealing with these groups and getting myself entangled in all this mess. But same ol’ Ricky, different day.”

So if Juice has an issue with Starks, then come and bring it. It is an issue if Juice wants to drag Bullet Club into, then go and bring it. Any time, any place. Will the Booster face the wrath of Ricky Starks soon enough?

 

AEW presents: QTV.

First, the disclaimer: “The views and opinions expressed in this program are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views or positions of any entities they represent.” And of course, this is a TMZ parody… QT tells his team that they are to keep their journalistic integrity and only give the fans the pure facts. No biases or attempts to ruin people’s careers. So what do we have today? Harley Cameron says Wardlow’s had a rough week, right? Someone broke into his car, stole all of his belongings, and no one knows who did it! They all have a laugh, and now we have footage of that person breaking into the SUV!

This person used a crowbar to break the window, then they unlocked the door themselves and snatched the belt. Wait! It was AARON SOLO?! And now they’re all laughing at how they got away with that! QT says Wardlow really shouldn’t be surprised. Last year, MJF stole all of his momentum! OH~! And Solo says with that haircut, Wardlow would make a great Spike TV Champion! HAH! RUTHLESS! AGGRESSION! But in all seriousness, what is next for Wardlow? Whatever is next for Batista, just not as good! HAHAHA! Nothing’s next for Wardlow, because he also left his passport in the car!

What does Hobbs say? “Wardlow, welcome to WILL’S World, b*tch!!” The Book of Hobbs’ next chapter is full of jokes, but will he have the last laugh? But speaking of the TNT title…

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

As part of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Slam event, Hobbs has issued an OPEN CHALLENGE! Who will step up to Hobbs to get dunked on? Rampage will begin immediately following NCAA Tournament coverage this Friday, no earlier than 11:30 PM Eastern, keep your eyes open!

And CHOP! Cassidy fires off haymakers, he backs Jarrett down but Jarrett pushes him away.

Jarrett tells Justin Roberts and the timekeeper to move. Jarrett grabs the mic, and while Sonjay distracts the ref, Jarrett CLOBBERS Cassidy with it!

Dynamite returns to single picture, fans boo, but Cassidy writhes. Jarrett gets in the ring, argues with the ref, and Satnam Singh deadlifts and TOSSES Cassidy back in the ring! Fans foo, but Jarrett stomps the bad leg! Jarrett KICKS the leg out, and he calls for the leglock! Jarrett gets the leg, steps through, but then shakes his head. Not THAT hold, this hold!

New name, same action, and same champion holding it up! Has this finally ended things between Best Friends and Triple J?

 

AEW hears from tonight’s main eventers.

Malakai Black says, “So this is what it feels like to be popular, to have people fighting over you. And all it took for the world to notice were these.” Chris Jericho says this is the biggest wrestling match in Winnipeg history! JAS VS The Elite VS The House of Black! Also, Jericho and Omega face to face for the first time in two years, “two Winnipeg natives beating the crap out of each other in the city that knows how to fight.” Malakai says, “There is a sickness in this company. We are here to cut it out. Start by wiping off the dirt, the blood, the sweat of people who do not deserve to hold these titles.” The Elite, however, are silent. Will their actions speak for them tonight?

 

The Acclaimed debut a new music video!

“The Acclaimed, doing everything they can do. Platinum, Anthony and Billy rolling with the fans, too. I just wanna hear the siren, I’ve been waiting all night. Put the double scissors up, it’s Acclaimed 4 Life. No, we never roll down. Once again, we uncrowned. Coming from the Dark days, coming from the underground. You know we self made, trying to find a little bit of heaven in this hellscape, suddenly it felt great. Acclaimed across America, the barrier, we cause hysteria, and give it back to the game. Up early, autographing name, taking pics cuz everybody loves The Acclaimed, hey!

“Critics saying we should get a different motto. But we never slipping, no, we not Mitch McConnell. It’s like we hit the lotto, I know, we moving you. We can’t stop, we got something to prove to you. Never enough, the good guys, the bad influence, the People’s Choice, they never have us losing. We ya voice, and you’re saying we should bring it back home. We three kings been stealing that gold for you.” The Acclaimed know they owe it to the fans, but will they be able to take the AEW World Tag Team Championships back from the Gunns?

 

The Outcasts are here!

The outsiders, the famous-before-AEW, former-WWE-ers, Saraya, Toni Storm & Ruby Soho, head to the ring, soaking up the heat and flipping off the fans. They get the mics, and Saraya tells Winnipeg to shut up! Ruby says, “Let me tell you all a story. Once upon a time, the grass was greener here at AEW. Until a couple of dogs, well, let’s be real here, a couple of b*tches, came along and pissed all over that grass.” Saraya, what do they do with b*tches that aren’t housebroken? Saraya says, “We show them that AEW is OUR house!” Saraya says the fans should kiss the ground they walk out, because without them, there wouldn’t be a division!

“You can boo all you want, but you are lucky we are here! I AM A MIRACLE! I don’t expect anything less from a bunch of neckbeard, stinky twats!” Fans boo more but Saraya says she’s too mad, Storm has to take it from here. Storm tells all the “fat people” to listen up. Storm became a champion here in AEW- Oh, sorry. When she became interim champion here, not a real champion, she wore it with a smile, and none of them appreciated her. But their current champion, Jamie Hayter, cheated to beat Storm, and the fans LOVED it!! And so Storm realized, “None of you people know what you want. None of you!”

So they’re here to give us what they NEED, and that is change in the AEW Women’s Division. They are the Outcasts, but they ain’t going anywhere! They’re having too much fun going from one entitled rookie to the next. It started with Skye Blue, then Willow Nightingale, and Riho, and Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. And of course, the favorite, the champion, Jamie Hayter. But speak her name and here she comes! Hayter, followed by Britt, rush the ring and take it to the Outcasts! And in matching denim! Britt takes off her belt and she aims at Ruby. But Storm snatches the belt to CHOKE her with it!

Saraya CLOBBERS Hayter, Soho and Storm mug Britt! DESTINATION UNKNOWN! Storm hits Hayter with STORM ZERO! But here comes RIHO! AND Skye, and Willow! Riho has a big stick, too! Riho, Skye and Willow run The Outcasts off! Fans fire up, will the Pillar & the Killer see they have allies after all?

 

Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker speak.

Daddy Magic says he and Cool Hand Ange saw that great new music video from The Acclaimed, “UN-BELIEVABLE!” Menard will say right now that the video made his nipples hard. The JAS loves rap music! Love it! Parker says it was entertaining! A Tony Award winning video! Great job! Congrats! But that’s where the praise ends. Last week, two times the Acclaimed were given an invitation, and they spit in the JAS’s face! But Parker says it is okay, that’s just The Acclaimed playing hard to get.

Maybe they need a reminder of why they should put some respect on the JAS. So do them a favor, Acclaimed and Ass Man, tune into Rampage and see why the JAS is the epitome of sports… enner-tay-ners! This Friday on Rampage, Menard & Parker take on the Bollywood Boyz! Will Caster & Bowens be watching St. Patrick’s Day Slam?

 

Rey Fenix speaks.

He and Alex Abrahantes are here, and Alex knows that the Lucha Brothers came from nothing. Fenix sold candies, T-shirts, put up the ring and wrestled for free for a very long time, just to get where he is today. Alex reminds us that the Lucha Brothers have been AEW World Tag Team Champions, AEW World Trios Champions, but this Friday, Fenix looks to become AEW TNT Champion! “Will Hobbs, challenge accepted! ANIMO!” The Book of Hobbs has his next challenger, but will it be his last?

 

AEW World Trios Championships Triple Threat: The House of Black VS The Elite VS The Jericho Appreciation Society!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews shocked many when they dethroned Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks at Revolution. And then Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia & Sammy Guevara claimed they were the new #1 contenders before The Elite got a rematch. The House decided not to waste anyone’s time, and accepted BOTH challenges at once! Will the House still be standing after stacking the odds against themselves? Or will their reign be torn down after only ten days?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and no matter what, this historic night will have a historic finish!

Fans are already losing their minds and chanting “This is Awesome!” seeing all this star power. In this kind of Triple Threat, only two teams are legal at one time, so Sammy steps up to start against big bad Brody King. They circle, approach, and Sammy dodges to dropkick! Sammy kips up, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Brody CHOPS him down! Sammy scrambles away to hug Garcia, then tags him in. Red Death steps up and CHOPS, but Brody doesn’t budge! Brody CHOPS Garcia down! Garcia hurries to his corner, but Sammy AND Jericho are gone! Garcia hurries all the way to the other side, but The Elite leave him alone, too!

Garcia looks around confused, Jericho returns and Garcia talks some smack to Brody. Brody BOOTS Garcia down! Jericho tags in and Winnipeg erupts! Jericho and Brody circle, but then Malakai tags in. Fans are going nuts as The Wizard and the Dark Father circle. But then Omega sneaks a tag off Malakai! Fans are even louder somehow as the Winnipeg boys stare down! But then the House BLASTS them both! And their teams! Fans boo but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Brody TOSSES Sammy over barriers, Buddy does the same to Omega! Malakai KICKS Garcia, then he and Brody mug Jericho! The Elite fight off Buddy while Jericho is sent into railing! Malakai stomps and kicks Garcia and Sammy, Buddy dribbles Matt’s head off steel steps, but Omega goes after Buddy while Brody sends Garcia into barriers! Buddy ROCKS Omega, but he has to fight off the Bucks. Brody stands Sammy up to fire off hands while Malakai fires off on Jericho! Malakai then runs to BOOT Omega!

Dynamite is going off the air, is The Cowboy going to rejoin The Elite?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite here, AEW really did go big for being in Canada, and after Revolution’s builds were a bit lacking, they are really ramping things up going into the Spring and Summer. I will groan real quick about Rampage having to worry about NCAA basketball getting in the way, but at least Rampage is looking great, too. Great new video from Caster of The Acclaimed giving love back to the fans, good response from Menard & Parker, and I like that we’re getting 2Point0 VS Bollywood Boyz to bring things back from WWE 205 Live. Menard & Parker will win, sure, but The Acclaimed definitely need to respond with a diss track.

Great stuff for AEW Women’s Division Civil War, with The Outcasts getting what was coming from essentially Team Homegrown. Hayter, Britt, Riho, Skye and Willow standing tall was good stuff, though I almost thought Riho was gonna hit Hayter with that pipe. But that wouldn’t be very in character for Riho, and she wouldn’t work as a Heel. Chances are, Marina and Nyla join the Outcasts, but I would really hope Shida gets back in this story. She was shocked by the Outcasts behaving this way at the start of things, she needs to tip the scales in one side’s favor for this to come full circle.

I’m a bit disappointed that Jade squashes someone in her TBS Championship match rather than facing a strong opponent. But maybe this is so Taya Valkyrie beats Jade before she gets to 55-0. That’d be big stuff for Taya to start her AEW run, and then Jade can finally move up to the top title. Good promos from Starks and Juice to hype up their coming match, but I hope him egging on the rest of Bullet Club doesn’t come back to bite him. While this is a feud to bide Starks’ time, we don’t need a copy and paste of Starks VS JAS where Starks has to get through like, Ace Austin and Chris Bey who are stateside, to finally get at Juice.

Great stuff out of the International Championship match but sometimes, AEW needs to remember that if they’re to be the better pro-wrestling company than WWE, they need to be better about pro-wrestling tropes. They ban Satnam & Sonjay from ringside last time, but forget to do it this time? I get that it was all to keep us watching them and then “surprise,” Lethal shows up to attack. But it’s not like any of that cheating helped Jarrett win, so I feel like they got things backwards. Jarrett should’ve tried all the cheating last week, and then Lethal takes Cassidy on in a clean match here that he still loses.

I should’ve known QTV was just going to be a TMZ ripoff. It was delivered well, poked fun at WWE because duh, that’s what AEW does anyway, and just as bad as actual TMZ. But of course someone under QT’s orders stole the belt, that was clear when Hobbs had the belt in his promo on Rampage. I do appreciate Aaron Solo is sticking with QT, and nice way to give Harley Cameron a role on TV. But obviously Wardlow will come after Hobbs after he deals with Fenix on Rampage. Wardlow and Hobbs will feud through to Double or Nothing, but it still feels like AEW’s booked itself into a corner with this feud, where both big men are fan favorites, but one push just hurts the other.

Great opening segment with MJF and his “Re-Bar Mitzvah.” MJF’s golden lightning bolts outfit looked awesome, I’m surprised Seth Rollins didn’t come up with something like that first. At the same time, I feel like none of those four ladies walking with him to the ring wanted to do that. But it was great to have the “Four Pillars of AEW” all together, each of them taking turns digging at MJF and MJF digging at them, and they even obeyed the wrestling rule of destroying the cake. I don’t think we’re getting a Fatal 4 Way at Double or Nothing, as epic as that would be. I think we should see MJF essentially run the gauntlet. He said he beat each of them in the past, he has to see if he can do it again.

Great stuff out of BCC VS Hangman & Dark Order, and I love that they blended it into the Trios Championship story and the Hangman VS Moxley story as a whole. Sucks for Stu to lose in his hometown, but the Heels were going to stand tall to put the pressure on Hangman. That Trios Triple Threat main event was chaotic in the good way, and it was just so awesome! As much as Winnipeg wanted a hometown hero win, the House of Black holding onto the belts makes sense as they’ve only just started. They can break off into a feud with just the JAS now that goes to Double or Nothing. And with The Elite backing up Hangman, fans still got to have an awesome closing moment, and I really like where this is going. If the women get Blood & Guts, why not have the men do a big 4v4 or something match for Double or Nothing to follow what is basically tradition now.

My Score: 9/10
