PLAY BY PLAY

The Inner Circle meets up backstage.

Chris Jericho knows it’s been a rough week for him and the boys, with bruised bodies and egos. But the pep rally will fire them up to get back on top, and they will also find a way to recoop for all the Stadium Stampede Champions shirts they made. But at least it’s only a few boxes. Actually, Le Champion, there’s way more than these three boxes. Well y’see, Carlos from 125th- Carlos is here? No, Ortiz, calm down. Seems his hearing hasn’t returned… But Carlos got the Inner Circle a badass deal on mass producing shirts. “Wow that’s a lot of shirts!” Jericho is getting a headache. Is recovering from the Double or Nothing defeat going to be harder than he thought?

 

Six Man Tag: Matt Hardy & The Young Bucks VS Joey Janela & Private Party!

DAMASCUS and the Bucks of Youth are still feeling WONDERFUL~ after the Stampede Stadium victory, but do not have time to rest on those laurels. The Bad Boy joins forces with Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy, will they be able to win where the Inner Circle could not?

Before the match, Hardy stands with The Elite and with cameras, “because these events must be DOCUMENTED~!” Hardy was proud to wage the Great War with The Elite, but Hangman Page is still feeling awkward. Hangman heads back to the hotel, and Kenny Omega says he’ll go with him to have some milk. Well see you guys later then. But for now, Hardy teams with Matt & Nick Jackson will team together for the first time EVER~! Actually, about that. The Bucks were wondering if they could get a different version of Hardy tonight? Of course! Here comes Team Extreme Hardy! No, no, go further back. Oh okay. This Hardy asks if they want to get wild and be a bunch of #SpotMonkeys. HELL YEAH! Will V1 be the one that helps the Bucks stay strong after the Stadium Stampede?

The teams sort out and we begin with Matt and Quen. They circle and tie up and the crowd rallies up. Matt headlocks, Nick tags in and Quen powers out. Matt slides under and baits Quen into a drop toehold. Nick slingshot leg drops! Kassidy runs in but gets a kick. Matt helps Nick get up for a springboard crossbody! Janela tags in and fires off hands on the Bucks then runs, into double elbows! Tag to Hardy and Hardy runs in, triple attack in the corner! Tag to Nick and we get a BUCKS IN MOTION! Nick gives the V1 but Janela gets away to tag in Kassidy. Kassidy and Nick tie up, Nick headlocks but Kassidy powers out. Nick runs Kassidy over, things speed up and Kassidy hurdles but Nick stops himself. Nick BOOTS Kassidy then DECKS Quen! Nick cartwheels but Kassidy hits the triangle jump hotshot! Quen BOOTS Nick then tags in!

Quen runs, tags in Janela, and huricanranas Nick to the floor! Janela runs and DIVES to add on! Then he adds on a Death Valley Driver! “He’s gonna puuuuke!” Janela puts Nick in and covers, but Matt breaks it up. Janela tags Kassidy and Kassidy drags Nick up. Kassidy elbows Nick on the back then drags him up for a standing cobra twist. Nick endures the abdominal stretch but Kassidy digs his knuckles in! Nick pops out and throws haymakers, but Kassidy waistlociks. Nick switches but Kassidy elbows out. Kassidy kicks and whips Nick, but Nick reverses. Nick sees Silly String coming and DECKS Janela to then go to the apron. Nick SUPERKICKS Quen, then enziguris Kassidy! Nick moonsaults but Janela dodges.

Janela runs at Nick but is sent to the crowd. He ducks the SUPERKICK, and it hits Braxton “The Blade” Sutter! Andy “The Butcher” Williams takes offense and goes after Nick! The ref misses all this because he’s busy with the men in the ring! Matt hurries over as his brother gets mugged by MJF’s mercenaries, and FLIES out to take them down! The rest of the crowd is cheering this on, and Matt helps Nick get back to ringside. Janela is waiting and he DECKS Nick! He rocks Matt, too, then drags Nick up and over. Janela puts Nick on the ramp and Nick gets in the ring.  Nick shoulders back then slingshots for a FACEBUTER! Quen rushes over but Nick monkey flips him to the ramp! Kassidy runs into a shoulder, and a slingshot DESTROYER!! Nick and Private Party are down but the crowd is firing up! Hot tag to Hardy!

Hardy rallies on Kassidy with clotheslines, then whips Kassidy for a back drop! Kassidy staggers up into a SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO! Hardy wants to finish this but Kassidy flounders to ropes. Kassidy turns around, catches the kick but gets a RIGHT! Hardy whips, Kassidy reverses and enziguris! Kassidy springboards, but into a catch! Quen runs in but Hardy kicks and catches him, too! Double DDT! Janela climbs up and lea,s into a SIDE EFFECT! Hardy drags Janela and Kassidy over to join Quen to have them all in the drop zone. Hardy climbs up and MOONSAULTS onto them all! Cover, TWO!! Hardy tags Matt in and Matt drags Kassidy up. Matt throws haymakers and CHOPS over and over, then throat chops! Matt runs but into a kick from Janela!

Janela punches Matt, then Nick, then climbs again. Janela leaps for a double missile dropkick! The Bad Boy fires up and goes to the apron, but Hardy ROCKS him! Janela is stuck in a Tree of Woe, and gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! But Private Party DOUBLE FLY! The tope conjilo take the Bucks out, but Quen may have injured himself there. Kassidy checks on Quen but Quen wants him to return to the ring. Hardy grabs Kassidy but Kassidy hits a TORNADO COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Kassidy gets more tips from Quen and goes after Hardy again. Kassidy throws hands, hoists Hardy up, but Matt returns to SUPERKICK! Kassidy flounders down and Matt brings him up. Fireman’s carry and Hardy joins in, elbow drop to MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! The 450, the MOONSAULT, and the cover! Hardy and the Bucks win!

Winners: Matt Hardy & The Young Bucks, by pinfall

A rather frantic finish, but Hardy is a good sport in helping Quen get to the back. Hopefully for Private Party’s sake, this isn’t as serious as it seems, since they only just returned. But will the Bucks return to the top of the tag team division soon enough?

Wait, Butcher and Blade want payback for earlier! They beat Matt and Nick down as the crowd boos! But wait, who are these two in the truck? Wait, are those who we think they are? Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood, F T R is in A E W!! They storm right to the ring and look at the Bucks. This has been a war of words for years on social media, but FTR is going after the mercs?! They beat down Blade then double whip and CLOBBER Butcher! They drag Blade up for the SPIKE PILEDRIVER! And now they look at the Bucks. The crowd is losing its mind, but Butcher returns! But he gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, to SHATTER MACHINE! FTR and the Bucks stare down, but FTR heads out. They made their presence known, so it is only a matter of time. Will it be FTW FTW when they finally throw down with The Bucks?

 

Jon Moxley is here!

And he is still AEW World Champion after overcoming Mr. Brodie Lee in a very brutal match that broke the stage! But he’s not here to fight, he’s heading to commentary. “Well I feel terrible, guys, thank you for asking.” That war at Double or Nothing with the toughest fight to date here. Now out of nowhere, Brian Cage appears and wins the Casino Ladder match to have a title shot. Unexpected but Moxley rolls with the punches. He has a bird’s eye view of Cage’s Dynamite debut!

Brian Cage w/ Taz VS Lee Johnson!

“Who can stop the Path of Cage?” Big Shotty wants to try, but he gets CLOBBERED the moment Cage gets in the ring! Moxley already likes Cage’s style. The bell rings and Cage tosses Johnson to a corner for clotheslines over and over and over! Cage then TOSSES Johnson across the way! The crowd can’t believe what they’re seeing, but QT Marshall can’t believe Allie is standing right next to him. Brandi and Dustin try to get QT to focus on the match but that’s a tall task. Cage runs corner to corner to uppercut, enziguri and GERMAN SUPLEX Johnson the other way! Taz likes what he sees as Cage drags Johnson up. Cage puts one out and lifts, to POWERBOMB, dead lift and BUCKLE BOMB! And then, with a slash of the throat, DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Brutal and abrupt, but that’s nothing new to Moxley. Taz takes to the mic now to address the champion. “Great to see you, man.” Taz respects Mox and how he grinds and grinds and grinds to this success. Mox is the top guy, THE AEW World Champion. But at Fyter Fest, he’ll be dealing with something different. He’ll be dealing with “that.” That’s a Machine! Moxley needs to bring that fight he’s known for, to bring the grit he’s known for, and to bring the heart he’s known for. Because the big man is going to stick his hand in Moxley’s chest and tear that heart out! “Understand something, Mox. That’s Brian Cage, the Machine. Beat him if you can. Survive if he lets you.” Taz busts out the classic line, but Moxley is looking forward to it all. Double or Nothing raised the bar, but will Fyter Fest be the fight of Moxley’s life?

 

Tony Schiavone stands on stage for Britt Baker.

The Dentist has her assistant and make-up artist, Rebel, wheel her out on her “Roll Model” wheelchair. That is because Britt suffered severe injuries to her right knee which kept her out of action at Double or Nothing. Schiavone says it is time for The Rules of Being a Role Model. Britt tells him to read the paper. Right, sorry. The Rules of Being a Role Model. What’s with the Law & Order sound? Britt takes over from here. “Thank you, Tony.” Rule number three is all about Britt. Don’t hurt the Role Model. To be frank, the egregious tandem assault wasn’t an accident. It was in fact a conspiracy against her, and goes far beyond just a match. Exhibit A, it was a 3v1 calculated attack from Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose from last week’s tag team match. This was probably in the works for months, or maybe even since day one of AEW.

Britt wants to be clear that she is a close, close personal friend with the TOP TNT Executives! Without Britt, there is no AEW Women’s Division! Flip the paper, Reba. Reba! The next page is Kris Statlander. Being an alien is “a crock of sh*t.” She’s a conspirator. Flip the paper. Hikaru Shida, the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion. She broke Britt’s nose, is a fraudulent champion, and a cheater because she carries that weapon around. Conspirator! Flip the paper. Nyla Rose, the former champion. Britt has seen Nyla come off the top rope hundreds of times with precision and grace. She couldn’t guide herself away from Britt’s leg? Britt thinks not. CONSPIRATOR! Rebel/Reba flips the paper, but there’s no more content. “Get the board.”

Rebel hurries to bring out Britt’s conspiracy board! At the center of it all is referee Aubrey Edwards! Tony, move over! This is the “web of evils,” all centered on the brains of the operation, Madame Aubrey. “Coincidence she just so happens to be around every single time I’m injured?” Concussion: Aubrey. Broken leg: Aubrey! Broken nose: Aubrey… was in the building! The roster has been put on notice. They tried to take her out, but the joke’s on them. Britt will be back in time for All Out! The Role Model rolls herself backstage, but will her “case” against the locker room hold up?

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Before James Marvez can ask about the pep rally, Jericho tells him to shut up with his fat head. Jericho and his guys have better things to do than stand here and talk to him. But yes, the pep rally will be one of the greatest spectacles in AEW history! Pomp and circumstance, cheerleaders, a drum line, lots of presents, and more importantly, the Inner Circle getting back on track after- Wait, what is Orange Cassidy doing passing through? Did he seriously just do that? “See you later, Orange.” The Inner Circle heads out, is Fresh Squeeze about to get pinched?

 

Hikaru Shida VS Christi Jaynes!

The Stardom Samurai slayed the Native Beast and is now THE AEW Women’s World Champion! But can she stay on this hot streak against the Brazilian va-va-voom?

The bell rings and Shida circles with CJ. The crowd chants, “Holy Shida!” but CJ gets upset. They tie up, Shida powers CJ back to the ropes, but the ref calls for the break. Shida backs off and CJ feels offended for some reason. CJ and Shida circle again, and CJ dodges to taunt Shida with her dancing. CJ wants Shida to show her dance moves, and the crowd gets behind that idea. Shida figures why not, and then CJ kicks her legs out! CJ says Shida won’t get to dance, so Shida fires off hands! Shida roars and whips but CJ reverses. Shida holds ropes and throws hands, but CJ blocks and CHOPS back! CJ knuckle locks and springboards to arm-drag! CJ dances a little more and brings Shida up, but Shida slaps and pulls CJ’s hair! CJ pulls hair back, but Shida throws forearms! Shida pulls hair again, and bumps CJ off buckles!

Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE CJ down! Shida drags CJ to the apron and positions her, for a KNEE! The crowd fires up with Shida as she goes back into the ring. Shida drags CJ up, scoops and backbreakers! CJ writhes but Shida drags her around for a camel clutch! CJ endures, reaches, but Shida just throws her down. Shida drags CJ back up, suplexes and floats over, TWO! Shida keeps her cool as she goes up top. CJ stands, runs in and springboards to enziguri Shida down! CJ pulls off her arm bands and climbs up top. CJ leaps for a sunset flip but Shida rolls through, only for CJ to basement capoeria kick! Cover, TWO! Shida survives and CJ thought she had it. CJ runs, springboards and LIONSAULTS but FLOPS! Shida fires up to ROCK CJ with that forearm! Then the BLINDSIDE WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! CJ shocks Shida now but Shida just fires up more! Shida drags CJ back up, FALCON ARROW! Cover, Shida wins!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The new champion is successful but any number of contenders will be coming for her now! Will she be able to withstand the challenges of being a champion as Spring gives way to Summer?

AEW goes picture in picture to check in on Omega and Hangman.

The tag team champions are chilling on the couch in the hotel room, probably still watching the show all the same. It’s hard to know what they’re talking about, though, we don’t have audio. But because they’re watching AEW, they realize they’re on TV now. Hangman spots the camera recording them and heads over. He looks right in the camera but it must be small. They decide to just leave it and chill with their drinks. Cheers! Who knows what they’re laughing about now. Hangman seems to offer Omega a stiffer drink than milk, but Omega seems just fine with dairy products. Will they enjoy watching SCU and the Superbad Squad fighting for a chance to fight them?

 

Cody Rhodes heads to the ring!

The INAUGURAL AEW TNT Champion has coach Arn Anderson with him as he joins Tony Schiavone for a special interview. Again, QT struggles to focus with Allie next to him. But Schiavone officially introduces the new champion. It was a big moment for both Cody and for AEW. Cody has a question for Schiavone. Does he know why Tom Brady is Cody’s favorite NFL Quarterback? It’s not because Cody’s from New England. He’s not well-liked in Boston and certainly not welcome in Connecticut. It’s a bit simpler than that. Brady was not the first pick of the draft. But his legacy endured, and the parallels Cody sees that when Tony Khan thinks of AEW, a merit based wrestling company, “naturally he’s gonna want to recruit the best wrestlers in the whole world.” Cody wasn’t actually the first call, or second, or even third. But that doesn’t bother Cody. If there is a tinge of that, it is absolved by the fact he is the very first champion of America’s greatest network.

But that’s the thing. If you think Cody’s story is one of nepotism, favoritism or things like that, think again. Cody’s story is of a 21-year-old who got called up, barely knowing how to hit the ropes, which Brandi knows. He took his bumps, paid his dues, and grew up in front of the world. He didn’t get the dominant genes. Dustin has the Dusty, Cody is not the Simba of this tale. But respectfully, Cody has something better. Back home, he has “this mean ol’ mom. This little Cuban lady, Michelle.” A broken ankle but standing up on it. Mom taught Cody about grit and determination. You could have all the talent in the world and shove it up your ass if you don’t work hard. Cody will out run you, out dog you, outlast you and out work you. If you’re someone who is critical of Cody bell to bell, then judge him by what he does next. Cody is going to cut a schedule like no one before. It is official right here, that he will be a fighting champion. It is an OPEN CHALLENGE!

Now, a little aside to those watching at home. We are still in this pandemic era. Wrestling is without its one true greatest asset: the fans. But you give us two hours of your time, you bought the PPV en masse, blowing away projections. It is Cody’s obligation to give us the best back. Follow Cody, because this is where the fun begins. The TNT Champion will be the workhorse of AEW, and that starts next week! Who wins that big battle royal for the first shot?

 

SoCal Uncensored VS The Superbad Squad!

Yes, Best Friends won their own title shot at Double or Nothing, but that check will be cashed at Fyter Fest. The position of AEW World Tag Team Champion for that match is still subject to change! Will the Cowboy and the Cleaner have to worry about Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky? Or will it be Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc that punch their tickets to the next big show?

Before the bell, Havoc and Kip both attack SCU! Usually it’s just Havoc who does this but it seems Kip finally gets why he does it. They beat SCU down then throw Scorpio out. Kip has Kaz and Havoc helps out. They double whip but Kaz crisscrosses them into each other! Scorpio drags Havoc out and throws him to a post! The bell rings and Kaz CLOBBERS Kip! The crowd is on SCU’s side as Kaz drags Kip up to wrench. Tag to Scorpio and SCU double whip Kip. They double forearm Kip down then Scorpio drags Kip around for a BIG backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Scorpio keeps his cool and drags Kip up. Tag to Kaz and SCU whips again. Scorpio ducks to send Kip into Kaz’s windmill kick! Cover, TWO!

Kaz drags Kip up but Kip jawbreakers free! Havoc tags in but runs into an arm-drag! Kaz grinds Havoc down and drops knees on the arm. Havoc fights his way up but Kaz hammerlocks. Havoc reaches for ropes but Kaz wrenches and brings him away. Tag to Scorpio and Scorpio goes up to drop ax handles. Scorpio snapmares and dropkicks! Cover, ONE! Scorpio brings Havoc up to wrench then tags Kaz back in. Kaz hops up and leaps to ax handle! Kaz wrenches Havoc but Havoc pushes him to the ropes. Havoc smothers Kaz but lets up at 4, to hit low! Havoc whips but Kaz holds ropes! Kaz drop toeholds Havoc, Scorpio kicks Havoc away, Kaz GERMAN SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Kaz gets the crowd fired up for SCU as he throws hands on Havoc in a corner.

Kaz whips corner to corner, Havoc reverses, but Kaz dodges. Kip tries but misses with his ambush and Kaz ROCKS him back! Havoc waistlocks but Kaz standing switches. O’Conner roll, TWO into Kip’s enziguri! Havoc rolls Kaz, ONE! Havoc rains down rights on Kaz but lets up to tag in Kip. The squad double whips and Scorpio misses a tag. Kip gives Kaz the atomic drop, Havoc runs and shotgun boots Kaz down! Kip jackknife covers, TWO! Kip drags Kaz up to throw hands and Kaz staggers to ropes. Kip keeps on Kaz and wrenches to tag in Havoc. Kip trips Kaz and Havoc eggs Scorpio on. The ref keeps Scorpio back, so the catapult into the eye poke goes unseen! Havoc grabs Kaz for a sit-down and cover, TWO!

Havoc fish hooks Kaz but the ref reprimands. Havoc drops elbows and then brings him back up. Tag to Kip and the squad mugs Kaz in their corner. Kip whips and elbows Kaz down, covers, ONE! Kip grows frustrated but he kicks Kaz back. Kaz CHOPS but Kip kicks and forearms away! Kip clubs with frustration and tags in Havoc. Havoc snapmares and fish hooks Kaz more as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Kip grinds Kaz down in a chinlock. Kaz endures as the crowd rallies up for him. Kaz fights up and fights back with elbows, but Kip throws him down for stomps! Kip drags Kaz back up to tag in Havoc. The squad mugs Kaz more then Havoc snapmares and scrapes his soles on Kaz’s face! Tag back to Kip and Havoc CHOPS Kaz. Havoc whips Kip in but Kaz elbows! Kaz boots Havoc, dodges Kip and shoulders back in. Kaz slingshots, rolls and hot tags Scorpio! Scorpio rallies on the squad, and gives Kip a belly2belly! Havoc runs in, misses and gets a dropkick! Scorpio whips Kip to a corner then runs in for a big kick! Scorpio slingshots for the CUTTER! DRAGON SLEEPER! Havoc runs in to ROCK Scorpio! The ref reprimands but the damage is done.

Kip tags in Havoc but Scorpio CHOPS and whips! Havoc reverses, but runs into a boot! Scorpio hops up but Havoc SHORYUKENS! Havoc fireman’s carries for a rolling Death Valley! Tag to Kip and he goes up top for a Superbad DOUBLE STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Scorpio survives but Havoc tags back in. Kip dropkicks at Kaz but Kaz dodges! Kaz slingshots to guillotine leg drop Kip! Havoc drags Scorpio up but Scorpio escapes the scoop. Scorpio shoves and uppercuts Havoc in the corner then tags in Kaz. SCU coordinates, pop-up satellite DDT! Cover, TWO!! Kaz keeps his cool and drags Havoc up at the apron. Havoc swings but Kaz rocks him. Kaz slingshots Havoc in for a CUTTER! Cover, but Kaz sees Kip coming, so he moves and lets Kip’s senton squash Havoc! Kaz throws Kip out and tags Scorpio back in.

SCU brings Havoc up to finish this! Underhooks but Penelope Ford grabs at Kaz! Havoc escapes Scorpio’s Gory Special and Kip clobbers Kaz! Havoc ROCKS Scorpio, and Kip runs in, SHOTGUN DROPKICK MICHINOKU! Cover, the Superbad Squad wins!!

Winner: The Superbad Squad, by pinfall

Ford applauds but everyone knows she had a part to play in this. Will she and the squad snatch the AEW World Tag Team Championships away from Hangman and Omega?

 

AEW hears from MJF.

“You know my name. You damn sure know what I’m capable of. In that ring, I am perfection. And on the microphone, mwah! Ci magnifique!” MJF is the breakout star of AEW, and he didn’t have to come from another place to get that handle. To top it all off, he is undefeated for… carry the one… Oh yeah! Over a year! So it’s a bit perplexing to him that he has yet to have a title shot anywhere in AEW! Maybe someone in the office doesn’t like him. So when that same certain someone was holding a battle royal for his brand new TNT title, MJF figured, “Why not make sure that certain someone gets good competition?” And Wardlow will be the insurance policy. If they end up the final two, Ward-Dog knows. But- BUT NOTHING!! MJF and Wardlow glare down, but MJF plays it off like it was a joke. MJF will see his muscular sidekick out there, but will the plan really go how MJF wants it?

 

AEW TNT Championship #1 Contender Battle Royal!

Cody Rhodes will gladly take on all comers, but the line will form behind the man left in the ring at the end of the night! Maxwell Jacob Friedman feels like he’s a shoe-in, but did he just stick his foot in his mouth with that message just a moment ago? We find out, after the break.

AEW returns and Colt Cabana finishes up his entrance. He, MJF and Wardlow stand with death dealer Luther, Peter Avalon, Brandon Cutler, Sonny Kiss, Christopher Daniels, and all three members of Jurassic Express. The next entrant is… Wait a minute, that’s Billy Gunn’s music! The Ass Man hurries out from behind the barriers to get in the ring! Luther wants after him already so the ref has no choice but to ring the bell! Wait, there are still more entrants coming! Orange Cassidy heads out slowly, but that might be to his advantage as everyone else is brawling. Kiss clubs Daniels, Wardlow protects MJF from Cutler and Jungle Boy, and Luchasaurus goes after Avalon. But wait! Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana and Ortiz, ambush Cassidy! That kind of stuff happens to The Sloth too much these days…

The refs tell PNP to stop but they shout back. The other entrants don’t even really notice as PNP dump Cassidy off the ramp. JB and Stunt work together on Avalon but Luther goes after Stunt. PNP leaves while Cutler goes after Gunn and Cabana. Stunt fights back against Luther then runs, into a pop-up knee! Luchasaurus saw that and choke grips Luther! Luther fights him off then grabs Stunt to TOSS him! Luchasaurus ROUNDHOUSES Luther, and choke grips, to CHOKE SLAM and ELIMINATE Luther! Jurassic Express high-fives over that one, but then Stunt tries to turn on Luchasaurus? He can’t even lift Luchasaurus’ leg, let alone the rest of him. MJF goes after Kiss but Kiss goes Matrix to huricanrana! Kis runs corner to corner to handspring and SLAP MJF! But Wardlow attacks, tosses and ELIMINATES Kiss! There’s that insurance policy at work.

MJF slips out the bottom just to go after Kiss more! The refs reprimand but MJF does what he wants. MJF returns to th ering and swaggers about. He uses Wardlow as a shield from… Stunt? Daniels goes after Wardlow but Wardlow knees away on Daniels. Cabana helps Daniels but MJF steps closer. Cabana looks at MJF now that there’s no shield in the way. Cabana throws hands on MJF! Cabana sees Gunn coming and dodges to jab, jab and jab! Flip, flip ‘n’ fly, BIONIC ELBOW! Gunn is in a corner but Cabana goes after MJF. MJF kicks low then whips but Cabana goes up, under and gives Gunn the Flying Apple! But Gunn catches Cabana and throws him out to ELIMINATE him! Cabana didn’t see that coming. Wait, is that Dark Order’s campaign manager? He’s trying to recruit Cabana!

Gunn ROCKS Avalon while Jurassic Express regroups. Daniels brawls with Cutler while MJF hides behind Wardlow again. Gunn clubs JB and Luchasaurus goes after Avalon. Gunn whips JB into buckles but Stunt goes to save his friend. Stunt throws fast hands but Gunn pushes him away. Wait, did Cabana actually take that Dark Order flyer?! AEW goes picture in picture as all this continues.

Wardlow and MJF go after Daniels together while Gunn is after JB at the apron. Luchasaurus drags Avalon up while JB holds on. Cutler comes over but Gunn goes after him now. Luchasaurus ROCKS Avalon while MJF grinds his boots into Daniels. Gunn, Cutler and Jungle Boy fight in one corner while Stunt stomps Avalon in another. Cutler tumbles but manages to keep his feet off the ground! Stunt again foolishly tries to turn on Luchasaurus. Avalon tries to lift Gunn but Gunn clubs him away. Gunn bumps JB off buckles but JB holds on to the ropes. Cutler and Avalon encounter each other, bringing up the beef from Dark about who is the worst of AEW! They argue and puff up, and then Cutler scoops Avalon! Avalon slips out and tries to toss Cutler but Cutler holds the ropes. Cutler fights Avalon off then baits him in to toss him over. Avalon holds on but Cutler runs, only for his boot to get caught up on the ropes!

Avalon and Cutler glare at each other despite the pain. They brawl while crotched! They go fast and furious, and end up flopping to the apron together. Avalon chokes Cutler but Cutler chokes Avalon! They teeter on the edge together, and both men reach for the ropes. They both slap at each other’s hands, and they BOTH fall! Cutler and Avalon ELIMINATE themselves! Uncanny! Meanwhile, Wardlow and MJF mug Daniels and Gunn clubs JB while Luchasaurus tries to talk some sense into Stunt. Gunn throws JB to the corner but JB elbows back! JB fires off forearms on Gunn but Gunn knees low and hits the FAMOUSER! And then Wardlow tackles Gunn! Gunn shoves Wardlow away, only for Luchasaurus to corner splash him! Luchasaurus turns around for Wardlow to LARIAT him inside-out!

AEW returns to single picture as Stunt leaps at Wardlow! Wardlow tanks the missile dropkick and blocks the whip. Wardlow whips Stunt, Stunt slides under and baits Wardlow into the buckles! Stunt enziguris and Daniels knees Wardlow! Stunt leaps, Daniels catches him, and brings him up to go at the ropes. Stunt huricanranas Daniels out and ELIMINATES him!! Fun Size gets one! He climbs up top and leaps, but into Wardlow’s arms! Wardlow pops Stunt up but Stunt slips to a sleeper! Wardlow pries Stunt off and TOSSES him onto Daniels, and ELIMINATES him! MJF cheers his muscle on, but Luchasaurus clamps onto MJF! Wardlow saves MJF and the two giants fight! They brawl with titanic fists and a HEADBUTT! ROUNDHOUSE! Choke grip but MJF chop blocks! MJF and Wardlow stomp away but Gunn ROCKS each of them!

Gunn whips but Wardlow reverses, and Gunn collides with Luchasaurus. Neither budges so they both stare down. Luchasaurus runs and collides with Gunn again, but neither moves. Wardlow runs in, they dodge and run him over together! Gunn and Luchasaurus brawl, but they each choke grip! Wardlow and MJF work together to dump and ELIMINATE Luchasaurus and Gunn! The final three are MJF, Wardlow and Jungle Boy! Of course, that translates to a 2v1- No wait! Orange Cassidy crawls in! He was never in until now so he’s part of a final four! MJF and Wardlow mug JB but Cassidy puts on the sunglasses. MJF sees Cassidy, and Cassidy “shoves” him. MJF shoves Cassidy, then sicks Wardlow on him. Wardlow drags Cassidy up and MJF has thy Dynamite Diamond Ring at the ready! MJF swings but Cassidy moves, and the ring punch ROCKS Wardlow!

Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets, dodges MJF, and JB TOSSES and ELIMINATES MJF!! That should shut him up for a minute. Then Cassidy and JB dump and ELIMINATE Wardlow!! The crowd trolls the already furious MJF and Wardlow with “Hey, hey, hey! Good-bye~!” The final two are Cassidy and JB, and things speed up! They hurdle, leap and run. JB ends up on the apron but shoulders in. JB slingshots and whips but Cassidy skins the cat with one hand! Cassidy huricanranas JB, JB returns, but Cassidy dodges the lariat to SUPER PUNCH! Cassidy keeps moving, ANOTHER SUPER PUNCH! JB is down but the crowd rallies up. Cassidy whips JB but JB rebounds to LARIAT! Cassidy flounders but JB runs, huricanrana! JB ELIMINATES Cassidy and WINS!!

Winner: Jungle Boy (will challenge for the AEW TNT Championship)

Incredible! Jungle Jack Perry has always been close, but now he has the biggest opportunity in his career to date! Will JB shock the world and become the second-ever TNT Champion?

 

It’s the Inner Circle Pep Rally!

The Inner Circle cheerleaders are on stage with the drum corps, giving a special performance while AEW is picture in picture. After all that, the cheer squad helps welcome… Vickie Guerrero!? “Are you kidding me?!” She didn’t like her lower third talking about ear plugs… But Vickie announces the official start to the pep rally! And she introduces the Inner Circle themselves. Jake Hager leads the way, with Santana, Ortiz, and Sammy Guevara in two. Sammy struggles to carry his presents and his crutches at the same time. But last but not least, Chris Jericho heads to the ring.

Jericho grabs a mic to say, “Welcome to the Inner Circle Pep Rally!” It has been a rough time, but they will band together like “five sexy phoenixes” and rise from the ashes! They’re nice guys, you know. This pep rally isn’t just for them. It’s for the crowd, too! They have official Stadium Stampede merchandise! They give away the shirts for free because we know they have thousands left over. Wait, that guy is throwing them back? That’s not cool! Sammy calms Jericho and Ortiz down and says that while they didn’t win, they did do something. They participated, baby! Sammy got them trophies! Well Jericho appreciates the sentiment. Why do they say, “King of Dad Jokes,” though? Well with the pandemic going, it was hard to find good trophies. Understandable.

Santana steps up and he got a “New Yorican” gift basket. Chopped-cheese for Ortiz, Vick’s vaporub for Sammy, and discount Timberlands for Hager. Wow, the Vick’s is strong. But best for last, Jericho gets to have a picture of Marc Anthony! That’s Jericho’s hero! Muy bueno, gracias! Jericho has presents, too. Sammy is still hurt, taking one of the worst moves ever. Sammy is too cool for lame crutches, so Jericho got Sammy a scooter! Sammy hugs Jericho as he takes his scooter for a ride. For Ortiz, who got his bell rung- What?! SINCE YOU GOT YOUR BELL RUNG! Jericho got Ortiz special headphones to stop the ringing in his ears. Amazing! And of course, Hager has something. Grandpa Hager taught him that the best gift is a hand-written poem. What? Hager takes out a paper and reads his own original poem, “Happiness.”

“O Inner Circle, you are the faction of my dreams. The perfect mix of sex and violence, the best of both extremes. You build me up when I’m feeling down like only close friends can. And if anyone ever crossed you, I will choke them with my bare hands.” Santana, Ortiz, Sammy and Le Champion, they truly are the best-la. Hager can’t wait to run The Elite over with his Tesla. He loves the way they steal the show every Wednesday night. “The Elite are the biggest b*tches on AEW Dynamite.” Jericho loves it! “Those pumpkin headed dips*its may have won the Stampede, but The Inner Circle never loses because I have a particular set of skills, I will find them. I will find them all like an unstoppable rebel force. I know where they live and I’ve seen where they sleep, and I swear all you fans will cry!” Whoa, whoa, Hager, okay, that’s good. “The end.” Round of applause for Hager.

Sammy asks what Jericho wants. He has all these gifts, but what does he truly want? “Mike Tyson’s head on a platter.” Whoa…! Jericho hasn’t forgotten what Tyson did to him on 1/11/2010 on a Monday night. The crowd cheers for Iron Mike as Jericho vents about Tyson turning on him. Ever since that day, Jericho has been dreaming of getting his hands on Tyson’s fat head. He wants his head on a platter! Well Sammy couldn’t get Tyson’s head, but he has something just as good. Sammy has a cheese platter and a bit o’ the Bubbly. Wait, the bottle is empty and there’s no cheese! What happened? Sammy swears it was all there backstage. But here comes Tyson and his posse! They’re eating the cheese and drinking the Bubbly! Tyson and his boys go right to the ring and stand face to face with the Inner Circle.

Jericho wants everyone to keep their cool. Tyson has his thugs, so Jericho will say this once. Shut your mouth, for one. Jericho has been dreaming of this moment for over 10 years. Tyson turned on Jericho after lying to his face! Tyson knocked Jericho out! Well Jericho is a sucker who deserved it! Jericho tells Tyson to shut up. Tyson has one chance and one chance only to apologize. Jericho tells Tyson’s guys to shut up and repeats his demand. Tyson tears his shirt off instead. Tyson flexes at Jericho but Jericho still demands an apology. Tyson shoves Jericho, Jericho shoves back, and we have a brawl! Security and referees rush in to try and stop this!

The table goes flying as Cody gets Tyson out of the middle of the scrum! Tyson and his guys leave but the Inner Circle is still swinging on whoever comes near! Tyson comes back and it takes all his guys to keep him back! Jericho vows to finally get back at Tyson but it takes as many people to hold him back. Will Le Champion get his long awaited revenge or just get knocked out by Iron Mike again?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow up Double or Nothing while building towards Fyter Fest! The Six Man Tag to open was great stuff, with the biggest part being the team formerly known as The Revival showing up! The former Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson finally stare down with The Young Bucks, but it is also smart to save a throw down between them for later. I imagine Fyter Fest will have that incredible first-time-ever. In the mean time, I like that Butcher and Blade made their return as part of the fighting. While Bucks VS FTR is the main attraction, AEW has been good at giving many wrestlers multiple rivals, so FTR being tweeners to take on Bucks and the mercs sounds like a lot of fun. There is a bit of curiosity here, though. Is Allie just not the Bunny anymore? We all know she was, but now she’s being a distraction for QT Marshall. Is this some long game ploy for Butcher, Blade and Bunny to tear the Nightmare Family up? That’s the only good story to come from this as far as I’m concerned.

Based solely on his work in AEW, you’d think Lee Johnson merely exists so big muscle Heels can destroy him. But I like that Moxley actually welcomes the challenge from Cage. Mox does not run away, he warns others to beware of him, so him going headlong against someone as menacing as Cage is going to be great. I’m sure there’s a way they can have Cage lose without him looking weak given this is his first story in AEW and it’s big right out of the gate. I did not expect a tag team match to determine challengers for next week, but SCU VS Superbad Squad was a really good match. Ford helps her team win, and I think that can actually help add some compelling layers to Scorpio’s individual story. Superbad Squad VS Omega & Page should be really good, but I can’t see Superbad Squad winning to make Fyter Fest’s match Best Friends VS Superbad Squad.

Britt Baker becoming a paranoid conspiracy theorist is pretty funny. Her already establishing the return being at All Out, I would think she and Kris Statlander finally have their match as was meant for Double or Nothing. Britt can go on a new string of wins starting with that to have a shot at the title by Full Gear 2 in the Fall. Shida has a pretty good match with Christi Jaynes, but I am curious who her first challenger will be. Maybe AEW surprises us with a contender’s match of some sort next week, since Fyter Fest is an unknown number of weeks away. Nyla will surely want a rematch but it’d be better if someone new got in the mix, like Big Swole Aerial Monroe or even Penelope Ford to keep pace with the Superbad Squad.

Cody’s promo announcing he is making the TNT Championship the television/fighting champion title is a bold but appreciated move. It’s notably ahead of WWE wanting to do the same with the WWE Intercontinental Championship, and clearly AEW still loves taking jabs at WWE *cough* JR’s line about Plexiglas */cough*. But that will definitely be great for ratings but also for this new title. The #1 contender’s battle royal was a lot of fun, and it’s great that Jungle Boy won. Cody VS JB next week will be great. One great part before the battle royal was MJF and Wardlow having that tense moment, even though MJF brushed it off. There has to come a point when MJF pushes Wardlow too far and Wardlow decimates him for it.

Then the Inner Circle was definitely “on brand” for their humor all night. Too many shirts that aren’t even relevant, the cheesy gifts, and even having Vickie Guerrero and the cheerleaders was just the right kind of corny. Hager’s poem was great, mostly because of his ranting tangent he went on. I like that we’re clearly getting Jericho VS Tyson as a bit of a nostalgia powered dream match for Fyter Fest. Whatever promos and back and forth arguing we’ll get will be great, but how does Tyson not just one shot Jericho? Mostly because, for all the muscles Tyson still has, I surely doubt he can wrestle even Jericho’s pace.

My Score: 9.2/10

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Premier Athlete gave Sammy one hell of a challenge, but the Premier winstreak is over! Will the Spanish God reign all the way through the holidays?

 

Jurassic Express & Christian Cage speak.

This is why they gotta trust Captain Charisma on this stuff. No secrets here, the fact that his guys, Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus, are the #1 tag team contenders in AEW. But they haven’t forgotten that the Lucha Brothers beat them for that same spot months ago and then went on to beat the Young Bucks. But since then, they’ve beaten The Elite themselves, and now here we are. Momentum is so important, but it can be gone just like that. Opportunities don’t come around every day, and sometimes they never come around again. So they’re going to scout tonight’s main event, even if it doesn’t have Fenix. Everyone is a potential opponent and then they become the targets.

If it sounds like Christian is getting ahead of himself, he’s not. That’s just how confident he is in his guys. If it’s the last thing he does, he’ll make sure Jurassic Express are the next AEW Tag Team Champions! Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus are fired up, will they be ready to show Penta & Fenix who has #CeroMiedo?

 

Jade Cargill w/ Mark Sterling VS Janai Kai!

Thunder Rosa joins commentary as promised, because she wants to watch her student give #ThatBitch more than she bargained for. But will Cargill simply make her opponent an example of what’s coming for La Mera Mera in the TBS Championship Tournament?

The bell rings and Cargill doesn’t take “The Kick Demon” seriously. Cargill even dares her to take the headlock. Kai does, only for Cargill to TOSS her away, and then BOOT her right down! Cargill gets the arms, JADED! Cover, Cargill wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

That might be the fastest win in AEW history! Rosa says all Cargill knows how to do is pose around. But Cargill gets Kai up to rough her up, whip her and BOOT her down! Rosa won’t stand for that, and she runs to the ring! But Mark Sterling gets in her way, so he gets knocked down! Rosa gets in to dodge the boot and tackle Cargill! They brawl, the refs rush in to stop this! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but these two will have to wait until their tournament match! Will Rosa end Cargill’s undefeated streak to then be a finalist for the TBS Championship? Wait, Rosa gets loose and rushes back at the ring! Cargill kicks her away, who will stand tall when they finally have their match?

 

The Super Kliq speaks.

Brandon, c’mon, moron. But Adam Cole calls out Orange Cassidy for coming out while Cole was on commentary. Cassidy tried to take Cole’s spotlight, Cole’s moment, but you saw what happens! Don Callis passes by and says hey, while Cole continues that Cassidy is the laughing stock of AEW. Nick tells the Best Friends, “You think you’re tough guys? We’re tough guys! And when you bring steel chairs into the equation, that’s not gonna end well!” Matt says, “Hey, guys, I have a brilliant idea. How about the Young Bucks return to tag team action Wednesday on Dynamite.” Best Friends can bring their two best guys and we’ll see what happens. CACAW! Brandon, cut. The red button, Brandon!!

 

Eddie Kingston speaks.

“2point0, congratulations, you beat up the great Chris Jericho. And I do not care. Chris has no business to do with me, you two do. You want to beat me up after my match with Danny Garcia, you want to keep this going, you guys are gonna learn something real plain and clear. You reap what you sew, partna!” Will the Mad King break Matt Lee & Jeff Parker all by himself? Or will he need some back-up to get it done?

 

AEW looks at Bryan Danielson’s grudge against the Dark Order.

John Silver thinks this is Bryan finally showing his true colors. He doesn’t think he can beat Hangman, he’s getting insecure and just taking it out on The Dark Order. Bryan says Silver is the strongest member of the Dark Order, but the thing is, “You become the five people you spend the most time around.” Silver doesn’t spend his time around elite people. But Long Island is Silver’s home. Bryan is known for being fast, good with strikes and submissions, but Silver can do all that, too. But Bryan sees Silver running around, making jokes, being “Johnny Hungy.”

Is that making him a better wrestler? Bryan wasn’t joking around at age 30, he was winning championships. Silver wants to get a big win in his hometown, but Bryan isn’t going to let that happen. Will the American Dragon slay another hometown hero this Wednesday?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

After the challenge was thrown out, Best Friends accepted! And they’re bringing ROCKY ROMERO with them! It’ll be Young Bucks VS CHAOS as Rocky and Chuckie T step up for Dynamite!

 

Mark Henry speaks to our main eventers!

PAC, FTR hurt Rey Fenix, and PAC has one eye. How can he fight like that? Does Pac look blind to him? He’s good to go. Malakai Black will pay for what he did, but this is about Fenix. Penta adds, “Because we have Cero! Miedo!” But Cash Wheeler questions how they’re gonna get revenge for Fenix. This was supposed to be FTR getting revenge for Full Gear! Full Gear was where FTR was supposed to make history, but they were robbed! Tonight, once again, Fenix doesn’t have the huevos to show up so they rob that from FTR, too! Dax Harwood adds that this was supposed to be the marker, the night of celebration as the first-ever two-time AEW Tag Team Champions, but Fenix didn’t show up!

Things get heated, but Henry interrupts. Let’s cool off a second. There’s been enough time, it’s time for the main event! Will the Bastard and Penta take down their archenemies once and for all? Or will FTR get some semblance of revenge for what they consider an injustice?

Death Triangle w/ Alex Abrahantes VS FTR w/ Tully Blanchard!

AEW returns as Death Triangle make their entrance. The teams sort out, fans chant for “CERO MIEDO!” as Penta starts against Cash. Cash and Penta pace, approach, but Penta is wary of Dax. Cash and Penta approach, Penta trips Cash but Cash scrambles away. Penta and Cash circle, tie up, Cash headlocks then wrenches an arm. Penta trips Cash to have a spinning toehold! Penta makes Cash spread the legs but Cash scrambles away again. Fans rally behind Penta and he eggs Cash on. Cash is flustered just hearing all the “CERO MIEDO” from the fans. Penta takes off the glove, then throws it to Alex. Cash tries but he can’t intercept it!

Cash gets Penta, whips, hurdles, but Penta KICKS his monkey flip down. Tag to Pac, Penta snapmares and Death Triangle double KICK and double DROPKICK! Cash bails out and Dax calls for a timeout. Pac waits, Cash comes back, tag to Dax. Dax and Pac tie up, Pac headlocks and hits a takeover. Dax fights up, pulls hair, powers out but Pac runs him over. Things keep moving, Pac slides under to then hip toss hard! Cash gets in but gets a hip toss! Pac scoops and SLAMS Dax! Pac drags Dax up, wrenches, but Dax pulls hair to whip then CLOBBER Pac! Cash says, “That’s how you do it!” Dax whips but Pac reverses to back drop!

Fans fire up and Pac tags Penta. Penta goes up, Pac sets Dax up, QUE PASO! Cover, Cash breaks it! Cash drags Penta but the ref reprimands. Cash bails out, Dax runs in to ROCK Penta! Tag to Cash, Dax bumps Penta off Cash’s boots! Cash stays between Penta and Pac, and doesn’t even mock Cero Miedo fully because he doesn’t care, Cash brings Penta up to headbutt him down then KICK him in the back. Tag to Dax, FTR stomp Penta’s legs. Dax snap suplexes Penta, tags in Cash, they work together for the assisted leg drop! Cover, TWO!

Pac ROCKS Dax, springboards but the depth perception throws him off! Pac tumbles, then Dax DECKS him! Dax drags Pac up as AEW goes picture in picture.

Dax puts Pac on ropes, tags Cash, and Cash chokes Pac! Cash lets off at 4, gets in and stares Penta down. Cash drags Pac up and EuroUppers! Pac flops against ropes, Cash taunts the fans cheering Pac on, then he kicks Pac. Tag to Dax, FTR get a leg each and DOUBLE ROPE GUILLOTINE! Tully high-tens Cash while Dax goes to the apron. Dax stomps Pac into the ring, drags him up and bumps him off buckles. Pac fires forearms and elbows to fight out of the corner! Dax kicks low, but Pac turns suplex into cradle! But Cash distracts the ref! Death Triangle would’ve won already!! The ref finally sees, TWO!! Dax CLOBBERS Pac!

Dax drops a leg, then drags Pac by an arm. Dax whips and then catches Pac for a cobra twist! Cash reaches out, FTR forms a chain! Alex points it out, the ref looks but FTR lets go. Pac endures all the same, and then FTR reform the chain! The ref sees it this time and CLUBS it apart! Pac HIP TOSSES Dax down! Cash tags in, CLUBS Pac down and keeps him from Penta! Cash drags Pac into a cobra clutch and grinds him down. Pac endures as Cash leans on the hold. AEW returns to single picture as fans rally up and Pac fights to his feet! Pac moves around and throws Cash out of the ring! Dax hurries to get Cash up and in, then tags in to stay between Pac and Penta!

Dax throws Pac out, fans boo, but the ref keeps Dax in. Cash LEAPS but only gets railing! Pac gets in, Dax anchors his legs, but Pac fights up to ENZIGURI! Pac is free, but Cash trips Penta! Penta storms after Cash, they go into the ring and the ref stops Penta! Dax gives Pac a BACKBREAKER, Cash adds a FLYING ELBOW DROP! Cover, but the ref sees Cash isn’t legal! Pac still kicks out, but now Dax gets in, TWO!! The Bastard survives, but Dax drags Pac up. Fans chant “We Want Penta!” but Dax flips them off. Dax hoists Pac up top, CHOPS him, then climbs up to the very top. Pac resists the superplex, throws body shots, then ROCKS Dax!

Dax hops down and crawls away, but he comes back, only for Pac to shove him back down! Pac adjusts, to SHOTGUN missile dropkick! Fans are thunderous for “A E DUB!” while both men are down. Cash gets in but Penta ducks the sucker punch, Pac back drops Cash! Hot tag to Penta! SLINGBLADE for Cash! SLINGBLADE for Dax! CHOP after CHOP after CHOP for FTR! Dax waistlocks, Penta switches but Dax switches back, only for Penta to BOOT Cash! Dax shoves, Penta wheelbarrows Cash to victory roll and jump, DDT to Dax! Fans fire up again as Penta pops Cash up for a snake eyes! Penta runs in, Cash puts him on the apron but Penta ROCKS Cash with a forearm!

Penta SUPERKICKS Dax away, then GAMANGIRIS Cash! Penta goes up top to CROSSBODY Cash! Cover, TWO! Cash escapes but Penta keeps his focus. Penta drags Cash up, whips him but Cash reverses. Penta goes up and over for the BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Penta has the fans rallying again, “CERO MIEDO!” Penta reels Cash in, tucks the arms, but Cash fights out, wrenches and whips. Penta reverses, but Cash POWERSLAMS! Tag to Dax, and Dax climbs as Chas gets Penta up. Wheelbarrow LEG DROP!! Cover, TWO!! Penta survives and FTR is furious! Cash gets back in, FTR double whip, but Penta sunset flips Dax! Cash helps Dax stay up but Pac SUPERKICKS!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

The Dark Father finishes what he started with The Bastard! Penta goes after FTR, but he gets mugged 2v1, and then they take his mask!! Alex covers Penta with his jacket while FTR laughs about it, playing around with the mask. Malakai gets in the ring to dig his fingers into Pac’s face!! Malakai wants to completely blind Pac!! Fans boo but the Dark Father stops only when he’s satisfied! Is that blood on his hands?! Has the House of Black helped break the Death Triangle completely?


My Thoughts:

What a wild episode for Rampage here. The TNT Championship match as the opener was surprising, but I didn’t see Nese winning anyway. He still gives Sammy a great match, but Sammy retains, and I’m thinking he’ll retain until Battle of the Belts on January 8th. Hopefully Miro’s gotten to have matches and has destroyed many, many men on Dynamite, and even Elevation, so that he has the momentum and the win-loss record to get a match against Sammy. Meanwhile, that was the squashiest squash match Jade Cargill or anyone has had, but we all knew she was winning anyway. Rosa VS Cargill is going to be hot stuff, but I feel like that’s going to be another Cargill win.

Good promos from Eddie Kingston, Christian Cage & Jurassic Express, the Super Kliq, John Silver and Bryan Danielson to hype up the upcoming matches. Christian calling Jurassic Express “his guys” is odd, but I guess he sees himself as a mentor to them when they were doing pretty good on their own. Though, I suppose maybe they wouldn’t have made it past the Super Kliq without him. Where’s Marko Stunt, for that matter? Bucks VS Chuck Taylor & Rocky Romero is going to be a good one, maybe we’ll get an 8 Man Tag of Super Kliq & Bobby Fish VS Cassidy, Yuta, Chuck & Rocky for the TBS premiere.

We got an awesome tag team main event, with Pac doing a great job with just one eye. The fall was still part of the match and not a shoot, I’m sure. Malakai being what screws Death Triangle over was a bit surprising, as was him going after Pac’s eye so aggressively. I feel like Malakai and Pac will have a No Disqualification style blow-off like Cody Rhodes and Andrade just had, but I wonder what kind of kayfabe damage Pac’s eyes will have at this point.

My Score: 8.6/10

Bryan Danielson VS Alan Angels!

AEW in Atlanta isn’t just a homecoming for Cody Rhodes, and Bryan knew it, too. He called out the Dark Order’s hometown heroes, and Number 5 stepped up! Will Angels expose some weaknesses that Hangman can pick up on? Or will he just get his head kicked in?

The bell rings, fans fire up, and Atlanta fires up for Angels. They tie up, Bryan waistlocks, full nelsons, but Angels breaks to switch. Bryan switches back, trips Angels up and has the leg for the HALF CRAB! But Angels gets the ropebreak quickly, and Bryan lets off cleanly. Bryan soaks up the heat as he points an ear to the fans. Angels storms over but Bryan uses the ropes for defense. Bryan comes back, he and Angels knuckle lock, but Bryan puts Angels in the corner. Angels dodges the forearm to CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP!

Direct hit and Bryan goes into railing! Angels goes up fast to ASAI MOONSAULT Bryan down! Angels puts Bryan in, climbs up but has to jump over. Angels turns around, Bryan runs in, SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up and Hangman is loving it as Angels goes up again.

MOONSAULT FLOP! BUSAIKU KNEE!! But Bryan isn’t done here! He gets Angels’ arms and gives Angels DANIELSON STOMPS! Angels is already dazed but Bryan still isn’t done! He flees, gets the leg, HEEL HOOK!! Angels taps, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Bryan flexes as he holds on longer, but then lets go so he can gloat. Hangman is obviously upset, but Schiavone goes to the ring to interview Bryan. In two weeks, Winter is Coming 2, the world title is on the line. And Bryan looks more than ready. Bryan says he isn’t sure. Hard to tell because if that was the best Atlanta’s got, Bryan whooped his ass! And not only did Bryan kick Angels’ head in, he is pretty sure he snapped an MCL. Not that the fans understand what that means. Bryan knocked out Colt Cabana’s tooth, he just snapped Angels’ MCL, and he knows there’s a Dark Order member from Long Island, so he’ll stomp that guy’s head in, too! And then Hangman.

In Dallas, Texas, home of the Cowboys, that is where Bryan takes the AEW World Championship, and where he shows the entire world that Hangman is a one hit wonder! It isn’t Cowboy Sh*t, but Coward Sh*t! Hangman’s had enough, he gets off commentary! John Silver rushes out and says Hangman isn’t allowed to touch Bryan. But Silver sure can! And so that’s what he’ll do! Johnny Hungy rushes the ring, Bryan bails right out! “You think I’m gonna share the ring with this joke? This joke?! He’s beneath me! Just like you’re beneath me!” Bryan knows Tony Khan said they can’t make contact or Hangman will be suspended if they do.

Bryan would love to slap Hangman in front of the people, but these people don’t deserve to see that. Bryan leaves, Hangman and Silver regroup with Angels. Will things only get hotter as Winter approaches?

 

Miro… is in limbo?

“I’ve been here for weeks, trying to figure out, ‘What should I do?’ What does a man do when his weakness literally separates his head from his heart? And then the vision came to me. So my God, thank you for showing me. For teaching me. For revealing to me. What an a-hole you really are. The line has been drawn, and the Redeemer will storm the Gates of Heaven, and the floor will turn red.” Miro will bring fear. He only has two weaknesses. One he will repair, the other he will embrace. Will Miro break through by breaking those in the ring against him?

 

CM Punk VS Lee Moriarty!

The Best in the World continues to fight and prove he’s still who he is, but against the rising hybrid that is #TygaStyle, will he end up proving MJF right tonight?

Speaking of, MJF makes his way out… Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his Hanukkah themed suit joins commentary to watch this closely. He heard “PG Punk” struggled against QT Marshall last week and has turned to binge drinking. Look how haggard Punk looks right now! Excalibur defends that is not true, and the bell rings. Fans chant for Punk as he shakes hands with Moriarty. They circle, tie up, and Moriarty wrenches the arm. Punk rolls, cartwheels, wrenches and wristlocks. MJF calls Moriarty a glorified rookie, Moriarty wrenches and wristlocks to a hammerlock. Punk slips around, hammerlocks, headlocks and hits a takeover.

Moriarty headscissors, Punk moves around, MJF announces that next week, the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royale returns and promises he’ll be a threepeat winner. Punk pops out, gets the headlock, but Moriarty uses kicks to pop free. Moriarty wrenches, hammerlocks, spins and snapmares to then ghost pin! TWO, Punk gets up into an arm-drag! Moriarty has the arm-drag, MJF says this is laughable. Schiavone points out MJF barely wrestles compared to Punk. Punk grits his teeth, gets up and powers out. Moriarty runs Punk over, covers, ONE! Arm-drag! Punk fights up, puts Moriarty in the corner, lets off but RAMS his shoulder in! And again, and again! And again and again!

Fans fire up as Punk wrenches and whips Moriarty corner to corner. Moriarty goes up and over and runs but into a calf kick! Punk goes to the apron, aims as Moriarty stands, springboard FLYING CLOTHESLINE! Fans fire up and Punk flexes as AEW goes picture in picture.

Punk drags Moriarty up at the ropes, scoops and SLAMS him, then takes a moment before he brings Moriarty up for another scoop SLAM! Moriarty grits his teeth, Punk listens to the fans, and he brings Moriarty up again to scoop and SLAM again! Cover, TWO! Moriarty gets to ropes, pushes Punk away but Punk stomps him in the corner. Punk whips Moriarty corner to corner hard, and Moriarty bounces off the buckles! Punk brings Moriarty up, shoves him to ropes and headbutts low! Punk throws body shots and forearms, then even KICKS! Punk snapmares, covers, TWO! Punk wraps Moriarty up in a chinlock and body scissors. Moriarty endures as Punk pulls on an ear!

Moriarty fights up, throws elbows, gets free, but Punk gets him for more forearms. Punk runs, but Moriarty CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! AEW returns to single picture, Moriarty goes to another corner. Punk gets up, runs in but Moriarty dodges! Moriarty wrenches, TWEAKS the arm, but Punk runs in. Moriarty puts him on the apron, Punk gets in but Moriarty rallies! Moriarty runs in to uppercut in the corner! He whips, Punk reverses but Moriarty reverses back to WRING out an arm! PENALTY KICK to that arm, then he reels Punk in for a SAIDO SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Moriarty gets Punk back up, suplexes but Punk slips out.

Punk shoves Moriarty, BOOTS from a corner, then goes up to CROSSBODY from the top! Only for Moriarty to roll through! TWO, into the BONE LOCK! Punk endures, fans rally up, Punk reaches out with his legs, but Moriarty kicks the rope to keep them away. The ref reprimands, Punk reaches out again and gets the ROPEBREAK! Moriarty lets Punk go, Punk shoves him away to go to a corner. Punk kicks low, hoists Moriarty up top, then SLAPS Moriarty! Punk climbs up, MJF claims cheating, but Punk SUPER STEINERS, only for Moriarty to make it a sunset flip! TWO, Punk high stacks! TWO and Moriarty pops Punk back into the sunset! TWO!!

Punk sits, TWO! Moriarty has the sunset, TWO!! ROUNDHOUSE from Punk takes Moriarty down! Fans are thunderous while MJF claims loaded kick pad. And that he would’ve either ducked that kick or taken it like a champ. Fans rally up as Punk gets up, MJF questions why this has lasted so long. Punk drags Moriarty up, hammerlocks, blows a kiss, but Moriarty ducks the Pepsi Twist to STEAL THE PEPSI TWIST!! Basement BOOT! Moriarty gets Punk up, facelock to TWISTING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Moriarty roars, gets Punk up, suplexes, but Punk slips free to inverted suplex tot he fireman’s carry! GO TO SLEEP!! Cover, Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

MJF gets a mic to cut off Punk’s music and talk. “PG Punk. Hey buddy, good to see ya.” But last week, Punk said he was disappointed in MJF. But MJF is proud of Punk. It takes balls to come out here and claim to be Best in the World when he’s struggling to beat QT Marshall and Lee Moriarty. The only thing Punk is the best at now is trying to get in Britt Baker’s pants. What’s the matter? Punk looks unamused. Just like how Britt would look if he got her in bed. This ain’t CM Punk! This is One Punk Chump! Oh does Punk have something to say? Punk gets the mic, and responds with, “You gotta lot of nerve coming out here, talking about pants, Britt Baker’s or otherwise, when you’re clearly wearing Larry David’s pajamas.”

MJF can talk all he wants about Punk struggling with QT or Moriarty. But the fact of the matter is, those guys are better than MJF, and he knows it! Cute, Punk! No, MJF, shut up. They’ll both shut up, MJF can bring his needle dick to the ring, and Punk will kick his ass all the way to Long Island! MJF asks the fans if they want to see these two go at it. Yeah? TOO BAD! MJF says Punk needs MJF more than MJF needs Punk. MJF is the spark to a flame Punk hasn’t had since 2011! But don’t worry. MJF will show everyone what a real pro looks like when he wins the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal in the most magical place in the world, Long Island, New York!

And he will finally be among fans that he loves and appreciate and the feeling is mutual. MJF will be better than Piper in Portland, than Bret in Canada, and better than Punk in Chicago! Laugh all you want dips*its, but there will be people rocking the ‘burb, chanting his name at the top of their lungs. Speaking of loud noises, did Punk bring his dog, Larry? MJF heard him yipping in the back. If MJF were Punk, he wouldn’t bring that flea ridden, disgusting maggot of a dog around here anymore. Because if Punk does, MJF is gonna put Larry to sleep! Punk gets out of the ring and storms right up the ramp! MJF has Wardlow appear!

The refs hurry to stop this from happening, but you don’t threaten a man’s dog and get away with it! Will Punk make sure MJF is the one put out of our misery?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker and team.

The Doctor is still very upset. That is an understatement. It is disgusting that she had to wrestle after Thanksgiving, and it is disgusting that Riho cheated to get a shot at the title. Schiavone asks Jamie Hayter where she was during the Friendsgiving celebration last week. Oh, sorry, she was having one of the best matches in the TBS Championship Tournament. Which she lost. Rebel has Britt cool off, but Hayter says Britt’s best match was against Thunder Rosa, and she also lost. Free therapy, but let’s not focus on the past. This is the present, and over the holiday, the team has had their kumbaya.

Great news, Jamie Hayter will be taking on Riho next week on Dynamite in an absolute slaughter! And if there’s anything left of Riho, then she can get her shot at Britt’s title. But Britt doesn’t think it’ll happen. Yours Truly, Britt Baker, DMD.

 

Adam Cole heads to the ring!

He’ll be joining commentary momentarily, but he and Atlanta know it’s all about the BOOM! Then he leaves the ring to join Excalibur and Tony Schiavone. Cole says the show just got a lot better with him here. But he won’t let Schiavone pretend this is good. Wait, Orange Cassidy shows up? He’s not in the match that’s up next. Freshly Squeezed stares down Cole and Cole gets up. Cole and Cassidy meet halfway and fans fire up as Cassidy takes off the sunglasses. Cassidy holds up a hand to Cole’s face, then holds his hands up to put them in the pockets! But the Young Bucks are creeping up! Cole waves bye, Cassidy turns around to see the Bucks before they can superkick.

Cassidy steps up to the Bucks and fires off the shin kicks! Cole LOW BLOWS Cassidy! The Super Kliq mock Cassidy’s shin kicks with “super” kicks. Then they actually SUPERKICK him down! Cole drags Cassidy to the stage, the Super Kliq sets up, but here come the Best Friends, with chairs! Wheeler Yuta and Chuck Taylor run the Super Kliq off, but will Cole return to commentary?

 

Tony Nese speaks.

Before he was rudely interrupted last week, he was saying how Sammy Guevara doesn’t deserve to be AEW TNT Champion. Friday on Rampage, Nese changes all that and puts the title around a Premier Athlete’s waist. Sammy learned a lesson when he got in Nese’s face. And if he thought Nese kneeling on his ribs was bad, wait until Friday. Will Nese run that knee through Sammy’s head to take the title from him?

 

Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears VS ???

The Pinnacle’s War Dog is a major reason MJF is still walking right now. But will AC Adams not be so lucky here?

The bell rings, Wardlow and Adams stare down. Wardlow waits on Adams to do something, Adams shoves him. Wardlow knees low, CLUBS him down, then drags Adams up to whip to ropes. Adams ducks and dodges and kicks back, but Wardlow CLOBBERS him! Wardlow hauls Adams up, fires up and POWERBOMBS Adams down! Fans want “One More Time!” so Wardlow gets Adams up for another POWERBOMB! Wardlow isn’t satisfied, neither are the fans! Wardlow gives Adams a THIRD POWERBOMB! A FOURTH! Then a cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Spears gets in to get his chair shots in! The chair even begins to break! Spears raises Wardlow’s hand in victory, will the Pinnacle do whatever they want in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with PAC, Penta & Alex Abrahantes.

Schiavone notes that it was meant to be FTR VS The Lucha Brothers. However, an injury to Rey Fenix keeps him unable to travel, so it will be Death Triangle, Penta & PAC. Penta tells FTR in Spanish, and Alex translates, “We would’ve loved to defeat you twice in one night, but since you took it upon yourselves to hurt my brother, we’ve got the best ally that we can find in PAC.” But Pac himself has an eyepatch because Malakai Black got him with the black mist. Can he still wrestle? “Tony, Tony, Tony. Am I an invalid? I am good to fight, you understand. Look into my eye.” There’s CERO MIEDO here! Will make FTR the ones who fear what’s coming?

 

Gunn Club VS Darby Allin & Sting!

Billy and his boys are #Gunndefeated and Colten himself is 35-0! But The Relentless One and the Icon are undefeated as a duo in their own right! Whose streak ends in this cold Hotlanta showdown?

The teams sort out and Darby starts against Colten. Fans are fired up for Darby, he ties up with Colten then gets a waistlock. Colten elbows free, headlocks, but Darby powers out, only for Colten to run him over. Colten runs, Darby drop toeholds and then stalks him to arm-drag. Colten blocks, Darby slips under to arm-drag through this time! SHOTGUN dropkick sends Colten to the corner! Colten get sup, but Billy tags in. Papa Gunn stares pat Darby to look at Sting, so Darby tags Sting in! Fans fire up as Sting and Billy step up to each other. Billy throws hands but Sting counter punches! And back hands! And again! And then atomic drops! Sting CLOBBERS Billy!

Sting runs but Billy avoids the splash and regroups with his sons! Sting waits on Billy, fans chant, “You Still Got It!” for the Icon. Billy wants them to shut up, but then he sends Colten in. Sting fires off on Colten, tags in Darby, Darby headlocks. Colten powers out, tags back to Billy, Darby jumps into a waistlock! COBRA CLUTCH SLAM! Billy stares Sting down, then drags Darby up by his waistband. Billy bumps Darby off buckles, tags Colten back in, and Colten stomps a mudhole into Darby. The ref counts, Colten lets off, but he drags Darby up to DECK him with a right! Colten soaks up the heat, drags Darby back up and bumps him off buckles.

Tag to Billy, AEW goes picture in picture as he scoops and SLAMS Darby! Billy takes a moment to soak up heat, then he drags Darby back up. Billy elbows Darby right in the head! Darby goes to an open corner but Billy drags him over to tag in Colten. The Gunns mug Darby, Colten CLUBS Darby and whips him to a corner hard! Darby gets stuck in the ropes for a moment before he flops down. Colten drags Darby to a cover, TWO! Colten clamps on a chinlock, Darby endures as Colten leans all his weight on the hold. Darby fights up, and hits a JAWBREAKER! Colten staggers, Darby crawls, but Colten stays between him and Sting.

Colten ROCKS Darby, tags in Billy, and Billy brings Darby around to scoop and carry him around with one arm as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Colten mocks Sting as he get the SHARPSHOOTER! Darby endures, crawls, reaches, but Colten drags him away! Darby slips through to get the ropebreak! Colten lets off to stomp away!

Winners: Darby Allin & Sting, by pinfall

No more #Gunndefeated streak! Sting and Darby stand tall as the undefeated duo, will they look to change the AEW Tag Team Division landscape?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Alex Marvez brings up how Jericho came to Eddie Kingston’s aid, but Jericho stops that there. He didn’t save Kingston last week. Kingston was yelling and screaming that he didn’t want Jericho’s help, and so Jericho did not help Kingston. Jericho was there to go after 2point0, that’s the problem. He wanted after Daniel Garcia, Jeff Parker and “square head” Matt Lee. But then those guys run in to go after Jericho! It’s a 3v1 mugging, and they whip him into trunks! Matt gets a chair while Jeff whips Jericho into the garage door! Matt SMACKS Jericho down! They told him to watch his mouth, and this is what happens. But will 2point0 have to worry about the Inner Circle now?

 

Team Taz is on commentary.

And Taz himself says that 25% of that Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal will be Team Taz. That means they have 125% of winning because it comes down to being the final two. The numbers don’t lie, Excalibur! But wait, here comes Lio Rush! Taz thinks Lio is bitter since Dante Martin joined Team Taz just last week. Lio tells Taz, “You’re a commentator, right? So you should know me. It is literally your job to know me. And if that’s the case, you should know that I’ve had the odds stacked against me my entire career. Just like yourself.” So what’s Lio’s point? It just seems crazy to Lio that Taz has 100% of winning this thing. Because then that’s Taz insinuating Lio has 0%.

Well, they took Dante away from Lio. Dante is Team Taz now, they have the numbers. Lio says he is a fighter. Deep down, Taz knows that Lio is a fighert! Hell, the people all know Lio is a fighter! Fans fire up as Lio says he won’t go down without a fight, even if he just has 1% chance. Taz tells Lio he should just retire. Look at this! Dante walks out, Ricky Starks by his side. Team Taz is fully assembled, but will numbers mean nothing when it’s all put to the test?

 

Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling speak.

Smart Mark applauds Thunder Rosa on advancing into the semifinals of the TBS Championship Tournament. But does Rosa think she has a shot against the “uncrowned rookie of the year?” But they put out a challenge for Rampage, Cargill’s show, answered by Rosa’s student, Jinai Kai. Who? Doesn’t matter. Light work. Rosa says hold on. She is here to tell them that Jericho is not gonna be here for Rampage after what just happened. But because Rosa is multi talented, AEW asked her to sub in, and she’s of course going to watch Cargill’s match. Rosa can’t wait to see her student whoop Cargill! Rookie of the year? Shut up with that! But will Cargill just tune up before she and La Mera Mera throw down in the next round?

 

AEW TBS Championship Tournament Quarterfinals: Ruby Soho VS Kris Statlander!

The wait is finally over, the quarterfinals are coming to a close! Will the Runaway or the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien take that next step towards history?

Ruby moves around, rolls to a cover, ONE! Kris holds on, Ruby fights up and Ruby pries the hold, only for Kris to hold tighter. Ruby powers out, headlocks back, but Kris powers out to scoop. Ruby tilt-o-whirls through but Kris blocks the leg sweep. Ruby wants the backslide now but Kris fights that, too! Ruby spins Kris, shows haymaker but Kris ducks!

Ruby and Kris tie up, Kris waistlocks, headlocks, grinds Ruby down but Ruby powers up. Kris holds on tight, then whips Ruby, but Ruby crucifix to a sunset flip!

Cover, TWO!! Kris fires up and fans rally behind her. Kris drags Ruby by a leg, hooks her up and has the SPIDER CRAB STRETCH!

Ruby endures, but she fights to headscissor. But Kris deadlifts to BUCKLE BOMB her instead! Fisherman for the SPINNING BUSTER!! Cover, TWO!?! Ruby survives and Kris can’t believe it! Kris drags Ruby up, shoves her to a corner, then runs corner to corner to forearm smash! Then side to side, into Ruby’s elbow! Ruby forearms, headbutts, then SUPERKICKS Kris to a corner!

Fans are loving “A E DUB!” for this one as Ruby drags Kris up. Ruby wrenches, but Kris blocks the kick! Roll and gut wrench, victory roll from Ruby! RUBY WINS!!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

The Runaway has fought her way into the next round! But they still respect each other and hug it out. Kris is the only one with a first round bye to lose, is this a sign that Ruby has what it takes to become champion? Or will Nyla Rose just be the wall in the way of Destination Unknown? Wait, Vickie Guerrero is on stage? She talks trash to Kris, and Nyla rushes into the ring to YANK Ruby off the corner! Kris rushes back in to run Nyla off, but will Ruby be the one to get revenge on the Native Beast?

 

Atlanta Street Fight: Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS Andrade El Idolo w/ Jose!

Things have only escalated between the American Nightmare and the Face of Latinos, and a hammerlock DDT to bare concrete is why they’re throwing away the rules here in Hotlanta! But will Andrade really look to spill the hometown hero’s blood just to settle the score?

Cody makes his entrance, with Coach Arn by his side, but Andrade and even Jose rush them! Arn falls into the gap between stage and ramp! Andrade and Cody brawl down the ramp, then they fight through the gap between ramp and railing. Cody kicks low and bumps Andrade off railing, while Arn is up and throwing hands on Jose!

They make their way to the backside of the railing and to the upper bleachers, and Cody chucks the trashcan at Andrade!

Andrade then hurries to his bag of tricks, and he brings out handcuffs! But then, he brings out Jose’s laptop! HEADSHOT with the screen!

Andrade then brings out chain from under the ring! And a trash can lid, too. Cody crawls to get the chain while Andrade keeps bringing things out. He brings out a TABLE!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

The ref puts out the flames, medics check on both men, but the Nightmare Family stands tall! These two quite literally burned it down, but will this put things to rest for Cody and Andrade? Or are things only heating up from here?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode! First off, we at the Chairshot all wish Jim Ross well as he starts his treatment for skin cancer. We got great guest commentators, and it all tied in with story each time. Hangman watching the great Bryan VS Angels match was logical, and again Bryan continues to win with whatever move he wants. They could’ve done better to give us the “hold harmless agreement” part of this, though maybe that was on social media. But it was a good layer in story, and John Silver coming out to go after Bryan was great, too. Bryan VS Silver is going to be a great go-home match to Winter is Coming 2 on the 15th. But while the title match is on a themed episode, I don’t see Hangman losing so soon.

Miro is taking things to a new level with his promos, and I guess we’re finally going to get that path of destruction he was talking about that AEW didn’t give him before. I again say Miro should be showing up on episodes of Elevation wrecking people. MJF watching Punk VS Moriarty was logical, and what a great match for Moriarty. MJF and Punk having another promo showdown was alright, but it’s hard to follow up last week’s. MJF threatening Punk’s dog was maybe a bit much, and I’m not even sure the point of him saying Punk wants to get with Britt Baker. I really hope  MJF loses this year’s Dynamite Diamond Ring matches so it takes away his ace in the hole.

Good dysfunction tease for Team Britt. I feel like it isn’t quite as squashed as Britt says, but I’m thinking Riho gets the better of them again and wins over Hayter. The Team Taz and Lio Rush bit was good stuff. Taz dropping his own take on Steiner Math was random, but maybe to poke fun at NXT for constantly doing Steiner references with Bron Breakker. I have a feeling Lio will get the better of Team Taz until it comes down to facing Dante. Maybe someone in Team Taz wins the Dynamite Diamond Ring, like Ricky Starks so he can add it to having the FTW Championship. Meanwhile, a damn shame Fenix got hurt again. But Pac and Penta will have a great match with FTR in his place.

The Super Kliq and Best Friends moment was great stuff, and I hope this becomes a Six Man Tag for Winter is Coming. It’s a pretty decent move for Cole & The Bucks since Jurassic Express is moving onto the tag title chase, as soon as the tag champs aren’t busy with FTR. Jericho getting jumped by 2point0 is of course the next step in the story with Jericho and Kingston perhaps teaming up. Tony Nese has a decent promo, but he’s still losing that TNT Championship match on Rampage. The Gunn Club VS Darby & Sting tag match was great stuff, but naturally Darby & Sting win. No idea where it goes from here, Darby & Sting don’t have a third for a Six Man Tag where Austin joins in.

Cargill, Sterling and Rosa had a good promo segment, but pretty sure Cargill wins on Rampage. And even then, I’m thinking Cargill wins against Rosa. Soho VS Statlander here tonight was awesome stuff, certainly both their best match in AEW. Soho winning makes sense, she was basically the underdog here and is again the underdog against Nyla Rose. Soho VS Nyla is going to be great stuff, too, I wonder if AEW is going to find a way to push this to the TBS change episode on January 5th. The first episode on TBS crowning the inaugural TBS Champion, makes sense from a marketing standpoint.

And of course, Cody Rhodes in the main event! It was pretty wild stuff, like Arn shoot falling backwards off the ramp. I did not think Jose would even give him a good fight but Jose comes back so he could take the golden shove shot. Cody is tongue in cheek teasing all of us with these references to Triple H and everything HHH has been guilty of in terms of backstage politicking and onscreen burying. Brandi being the catalyst for maybe not so much Cody’s win but certainly escalating things in an attempt to get the fans marking out. No idea where this goes, either, other than perhaps one more match with Malakai.

How do they escalate from a burning table, though? Cody always bleeds, too, so would it have to be something close to the Omega VS Moxley Unsanctioned match from Full Gear a couple years ago.

My Score: 9/10
