PLAY BY PLAY

Chris Jericho joins AEW commentary!

Le Champion brings Floyd the baseball bat as a special guest of his own as he sits with Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone and Excalibur at the desk. “Back in business, baby!” The world wanted it ever since Jericho and “Skee-a-vone” took over while JR was at home and Excalibur was milking cows or whatever he does home in Bakersfield, California or whatever. What will Jericho have to say about his boys in the Inner Circle being in action later tonight?

 

FTR VS The Butcher & The Blade!

Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood got in the way of the brawl between Andy Williams, Braxton Sutter and the Young Bucks, and then got into it backstage during interview time. But while FTR means whatever you want it to mean, will it be victorious in an AEW in-ring debut?

The teams sort out and the crowd is hot for FTR. Dax starts against Blade and they circle with the bell. They tie up, go around, and break. They go again, Blade puts Dax in a corner but lets up at 4. Dax comes back, ties up with Blade, but gets put back in the corner. The ref counts but has to break them up. Blade argues with the ref while we get a look at Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson both taking notes of these two teams. Behind Arn is Shawn Spears, but Spears is glaring straight ahead at the ring. We also see Lance Archer and Jake the Snake watching, but they don’t seem that impressed yet.

Back in the ring, Blade and Dax reset and tie up. Dax headlocks and gets the takeover, but Blade avoids the cover. Blade fights up to his feet and powers Dax to ropes. Dax lets go but Blade kicks low! Blade CHOPS but Dax CHOPS back! It’s a CHOP fight already! Blade and Dax switch to forearms, then Dax headlocks only for Blade to power out. Dax runs Blade over but keeps moving! Things speed up, Dax slides under Blade to waistlock and O’Conner roll! TWO, but Dax is right on Blade with a cradle! TWO, and Dax gets the headlock takeover! The crowd cheers the technical exchange, and Dax wrenches Blade to tag in Cash. Cash leaps up with knees! Cash wrenches to a shoulder breaker then tags in Dax. Cash feeds Blade to Dax’s knee, then snapmares Blade for Dax to stomp away on the arm!

Dax drags Blade up and wrenches to hit a Northern Lights Suplex! Bridging cover, TWO, but Dax is on Blade with a keylock. Blade powers Dax to the corner and Butcher tags in, but Cash backs up his partner. The teams stare down but settle down. The crowd is thunderous for FTR as Butcher waits for Dax. Cash tags in and he circles with Butcher, but Butcher swipes at Dax! Dax anchors Butcher’s foot and Cash waistlocks. Butcher fights free but Cash hits back with forearms and uppercuts! Cash runs and collides with Butcher, but Butcher doesn’t budge! Cash tries again, but Butcher still stays up. Butcher ducks but Cash hurdles, and dropkicks Butcher! Butcher stays up but Cash clutches an arm. A bad landing at a bad time, perhaps? The ref checks on Cash and he has to keep Butcher back. But Cash was faking it and he rolls Butcher up!! TWO, and Butcher CROSSBODIES Cash!

Butcher drags Cash up to bump off buckles then tags in Blade. Butcher CHOPS, Cash CHOPS, but Blade smothers Cash in the corner. The ref reprimands Blade but Butcher gets away with choking Cash! Dax protests but the ref keeps him back. Cash is let go but Blade stomps him around. Cash throws hands but Blade rakes eyes. Blade chokes Cash on the ropes but lets up at 4. Butcher tags in and he chokes Cash now! He lets up at 4 then drags Cash up to the corner. Butcher throws hands then tags in Blade. They double headbutt Cash again and again, but the crowd rallies up. Blade brings Cash up but Cash throws elbows. Blade snapmares and wraps a chinlock on to grind Cash down.

Cash endures, the crowd rallies up, and Cash hits a jawbreaker! Cash is free again, but Blade gets him with a facelock. But Cash powers up to head for his corner! Blade sucker punches Dax off the apron but turns around into a headlock. Blade powers out but Cash catches Blade’s leap for a POWERSLAM! Both men are down and the crowd fires up. Cash crawls, hot tag to Dax! Dax rallies on Blade with jab after jab and a haymaker! Another! Dax hoists Blade up for a BIG back suplex! Dax dropkicks Butcher off the apron to then give Blade a swinging neckbreaker! Butcher runs in but his boot is caught for a dragon screw! Blade kicks low and reels Dax in, but Dax suplexes for a BRAIN BUSTER!

Dax drags Blade up and brings him over to the corner. He puts Blade up top, climbs up to join him, but has to fight Butcher off with haymakers! Butcher shoves Dax down but Cash catches Butcher in the ropes! FTR combines for a DOUBLE DRAPING DDT! The Viper’s influence is still strong and Cash goes after Blade. Blade boots Cash away, but Dax ROCKS Blade with an uppercut! Dax climbs up, Dash tags in, and the SUPERPLEX is followed by the FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!?! Blade survives the combo and the legends in the crowd are taking note. Cash tags Dax in and they coordinate on Blade. They double whip, Blade ducks and Butcher trips Cash! Blade rolls Dax with tights, TWO!! BIG KNEE rocks Dax! Butcher tags in, Dax is fed to the lift, assisted Gunn Slinger! Cover, TWO!! Dax survives and Jericho is loving the “smash mouth style” of this entire match.

Blade tags back in and they coordinate, but Cash makes the save! Cash helps Dax give Butcher the SHATTER MACHINE!! Or now, the Goodnight Express! But Blade is after Dax again! Backslide battle but Cash tags in! SPIKE PILEDRIVER!! The Mind-Breaker is definitely what Arn and Tully like, and Cash covers, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

Tonight, it stands for #FearThrowbackRasslin! Okay, that’s not a perfect acronym, but it’s what FTR does. Schiavone interviews them in the ring and congratulates them on the win. That’s exactly what they wanted to do, right? Dax says it is. This is the pinnacle of professional and tag team wrestling. But the Young Bucks come out and join FTR in the ring. Nick doesn’t want to be rude, but he and Matt want to congratulate them on that great match. Matt says they also wanted to thank FTR for that save. And while they appreciate the sentiment, they also couldn’t help but notice Cash and Dax failed to “properly introduce” themselves. It’s fine, it’s fine. They’re all here now, so maybe they can have that now?

“My name’s Matt. This is my brother Nick. We’ve been carrying tag team wrestling solely on our backs for the past decade and a half!” They’re the best tag team in AEW! They’re the Young Bucks! It’s nice to finally meet you. But then Butcher attacks! Cash and Dax go after him with fury, but then the Superbad Squad get involved! Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc want after FTR but the Bucks back Cash and Dax up! We have a brawl, but here come Kenny Omega and Hangman Page! The Elite run the Superbad Squad off but then stand off with FTR. But specifically, the AEW World Tag Team Champions are looking at their crop of contenders just a month away from Fyter Fest. Omega and the Bucks keep peace, but there will come a tag team war soon enough. Who will fight the champs at Fyter Fest?

 

Backstage interview with The Natural Nightmares and Allie.

Brandi Rhodes, Dustin, QT Marshall and QT’s cutie hear breaking news. Dustin and QT will face Kenny Omega and Hangman Page for the AEW World Tag Team Championships next week! Are the top contenders ready? Brandi wants to address something first. Why does Allie have a Nightmare Family jacket?! QT made that for her? Yeah, she’s part of the family now as his girlfriend. Does QT not get what’s at stake here? They have their first shot at the tag team titles! Against two of the greatest in the world! And in a second, Hangman could take QT’s head off with that Buckshot! Dustin needs QT’s head in the game. Dustin needs his partner. This could be them at Fyter Fest against the Best Friends! It’ll be great, but only if QT is focused. Whatever this is with Allie, get it out of your system, because she won’t be ringside for that match. The lines have been drawn, will QT choose the gold or his girl?

 

Hikaru Shida & Kris Statlander VS Nyla Rose & Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian!

The Stardom Samurai once again teams with the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien to take on the Native Beast and the Superbad Girl! But in a match with three of her top five contenders, can Shida hope to make it out of this match in one piece?

The teams don’t even have time to sort out before Penelope and Nyla borrow Jimmy Havoc’s favorite strategy of a blindside attack! The bell rings as the brawl rages and Nyla bumps Kris off buckles. Penelope stomps Shida down and grinds her boot in. Nyla does the same to Kris but Shida gets out of the ring. Penelope and Nyla bring Kris up and double whip, but Kris ducks and kicks back! Kris throws Nyla into Penelope a la a SPEAR! Kris clubs Nyla and basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Kris keeps on Nyla and bumps her off buckles. Tag to Shida and Shida runs to hit a forearm smash! Tag back to Kris and Kris runs to add an uppercut! Tag back to Shida, she swipes at Ford then comes back to KNEE Nyla!

Shida snapmares Nyla then tags Kris. Kris climbs and leaps at Nyla, but Nyla gets under and Kris belly flops! Nyla sucker punches Shida then comes back to CLOBBER Kris! Ford cheers as Nyla covers, TWO! Nyla drags Kris up by her hair to drive in an elbow! She scrapes her boot off Kris’ face, scoops her and slams her down! Then drops a leg! Nyla has control as usual as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Nyla pulls back on Kris’ arms. Kris fights her way up, fights free and throws hands. Nyla catches one punch, then the other, then ducks Kris’ roundhouse to pump handle flip her! Kris lands on her feet to PELE! And DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! Both women are down but the crowd is rallying. The standing count climbs as Kris and Nyla crawl. Hot tags to Penelope and Shida! Shida swings but misses and Penelope kicks to whip. Shida puts Penelope up on the top rope for a Top Shelf Knee! Shida pushes Penelope to the apron to then spin her around. The apron knee hits! “Holy Shida!” climbs up and missile dropkicks Ford won! She drags Ford back up, to suplex for a BRAIN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Shida tags Kris and they go after Penelope together. They drag her up for a double backbreaker! BLINDSIDE WIZARD! Standing moonsault! Shida decks Nyla while Kris covers, TWO! Kris drags Ford up but Ford knees and DDT’s back! Cover, TWO! Tag to Nyla and she drags Kris back up. Fireman’s carry but Kris fights out. Kris ROUNDHOUSES Nyla down but Ford runs in! Kris ducks the heel kick but Ford goes Matrix to avoid the clothesline! Penelope pops back up to STUNNER! But Shida KNEES her down! Shida intercepts Nyla up top with haymakers then climbs up to join her. SUPERPLEX! Kris drags Nyla up, runs, SCISSOR KICK! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Kris can’t believe it!

Kris tags Shida in and Shida drags Nyla up for clubbing forearms. She hammers away on Nyla and tries to suplex, but Nyla resists. Nyla suplexes back, hangs Shida up on the ropes, but Kris runs in. Nyla kicks Kris and sets her beside Shida! Nyla goes to the corner, springboards for a DOUBLE GUILLOTINE KNEE!! Nyla scrapes Kris out and tags in Penelope. Nyla brings Shida up to lift, Penelope springboards but Kris yanks her down! Shida huricanranas Nyla, runs, and KNEES Her against the ropes! Nyla falls out of the ring and Ford is fed to her for the FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!?! Shida doesn’t lose her focus, she runs but Sabian swipes at her! The ref reprimands but Kris DIVES onto him! But Penelope has the title belt and SMASHES Shida with it!! Then she hits the PERFECT PLEX! Bridging cover, Penelope and Nyla win!!

Winners: Penelope Ford & Nyla Rose, by pinfall

The Native Beast is on the winning team, but it’s the Superbad Girl who pinned the champion! Will Penelope move up from fifth to first on Shida’s list of contenders?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin.

“I’m still not medically cleared to wrestle, but I don’t give a sh*t.” Tony Hawk tells him that he doesn’t need a doctor’s note to skate. As far as the skating legend is concerned, Darby is cleared and can go have fun. Darby checks his trucks, sets up a little ladder, and starts experimenting with an extremely elevated takeoff. That’s dicey on top of difficult, as Darby falls again and again. But he shrugs it off each time to try again. And again. And again. But finally, he gets it right! Hawk approves, but will Darby be able to get back in the ring that easily?

 

AEW hears from Britt Baker.

“What makes me a role model? Just my existence in AEW! Coming out to the ring as Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. I am truly inspiring everybody.” But she has put the AEW Women’s Division on notice about this apparent conspiracy to take her out of action. Big Swole has exhausted Britt with her bad attitude and playing the “struggle” card. Swole had just about enough of Britt, too. Britt claims she’s had the most struggles in AEW. She has faced the unexpected her whole life. There was an unexpected microbiology exam she didn’t study for, but she aced it. She has a very prominent image to uphold on top of her physical rehab. She can’t even move her wheelchair with just that little weight attached… Luckily she has Rebel to “spot her.” The fans need a role model, and Britt is happy to fill that role, but the fans need to respect that. Will Britt get the respect she (thinks she) deserves?

 

The Inner Circle VS Best Friends & Orange Cassidy!

Santana, Ortiz & Jake Hager return to being a trio as they look to put the hurt on Trent, Chuck Taylor and The Sloth for the disrespect Cassidy inadvertently showed them. Will the Inner Circle continue their rebound from Double Or Nothing? Or will Best Friends continue to roll on towards Fyter Fest and the AEW World Tag Team Championships?

Hager, Santana and Ortiz attack Trent, Chuck and Cassidy before the bell! Jericho says, “See what happens?! You want to act nonchalant? Just wait until The Inner Circle kicks your ass!” Hager throws Cassidy out while Ortiz throws Chuckie T. Santana is after Trent in the ring while Hager goes after Cassidy on the stage! Hager throws Cassidy hard then rains down rights. Santana CHOPS Trent while Ortiz whips Chuckie T into barriers! Jericho talks trash all the while as his guys regroup at the corner. Santana throws hands on Trent then throws forearms. The crowd boos but that only motivates Santana to hit Trent harder. Santana CHOPS Trent then CHOPS again! Cassidy and Chuckie regroup at their corner while Santana whips corner to corner. Santana leaps but misses, and Trent gives back those CHOPS!

Trent brings Santana up but Santana knees low. Santana gets mad and runs corner to corner, but into a tornado! He denies the DDT to BOOT Trent down! Trent wobbles and Santana pushes him around. Santana goes to run but Trent reels him in for a SNAP SAIDO! Both men go to their corners, hot tag to Ortiz and he ROCKS Trent! Ortiz throws EuroUppers but Chuckie tags in. Ortiz whips, Trent gets around him, and Ortiz gets SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF! Ortiz flops out but Trent DECKS Hager! Chuckie tags, Trent builds speed to DIVE out onto Big Hurt! Chuckie FLIES onto Proud ‘n’ Powerful! The crowd fires up as Chuckie brings Ortiz up to whip to Trent’s SPEAR! Jericho no longer likes what he sees as Chuckie puts Ortiz in. Trent and Chuckie want to hug but Hager attacks! Best Friends go after Hager but Santana clobbers Trent!

Hager bumps Chuckie off buckles then tags in. Ortiz brings Chuckie up for a POWERBOMB, then sits him up for Santana’s KICK! Hager runs corner to corner for the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO! Chuckie survives but Hager pushes him down. Hager chokes Chuckie but the ref reprimands the Inner Circle. Santana gets a choke in as AEW goes picture in picture.

The Inner Circle gets away with cheating, but Hager brings Chuckie up for body shots. He throws haymakers then stomps Chuckie down. The ref reprimands Hager as he grinds his boot in, but he backs off to sucker punch Trent! Tag to Santana and he stomps a mudhole into Chuckie. Tag to Ortiz and Ortiz brings Chuckie up for haymakers. Santana CHOPS, but Chuckie elbows Hager! Ortiz whips Santana in but Chuckie sends Santana out! Chuckie throws hands, goes up and over Ortiz, hot tag to Trent! Hager tags in but Trent dodges him to hit Ortiz and Santana! Trent throws hands on Hager and even CHOPS! He backs Hager down, whips him corner to corner, but Hager reverses hard! Trent tumbles up the corner, flops back down, and into Hager’s scoop! Hotshot combo with Santana! The crowd boos and the ref reprimands but there’s nothing they can do. Cover, TWO!

Hager keeps his cool as he tags Ortiz in. Ortiz drags Trent up and snap suplexes him down! Cover, TWO! Ortiz looms over Trent while staying between him and his corner. Ortiz swivels the hips and brings Trent up to bump him off Santana’s boot. Tag back to Hager and Ortiz sucker punches Trent! When Cassidy doesn’t flinch, Ortiz takes the sunglasses away and tosses them! Hager throws hands on Trent and Ortiz adds CHOPS! Ortiz and Hager double whip as AEW returns to single picture, and Trent kicks back! Trent baits Hager to dump him out, then dodges Ortiz in the corner to hit a TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and crawling, and Cassidy is ready. Hot tag to Freshly Squeeze!

Hager and Cassidy stare down, and the Shin Kicks fire off! Cassidy puts his hands up, but Hager picks Cassidy up to toss him to the corner! Hager runs in and TOSSES Cassidy, only for Cassidy to roll through to his feet! Cassidy baits Hager in and sends him out of the ring! Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets but PNP go after him! Cassidy dodges them to double huricanrana! And then Cassidy DIVES to take out Hager! Cassidy is TRYING! Cassidy leaps over Santana to crossbody Ortiz! And then he tilt-o-whirl DDT’s Santana! Jericho claims Cassidy is hustling them! Cassidy climbs up top and leaps at Hager, but Hager catches him for a SLAM! Cover, but Best Friends break it! Hager runs but into the Sexy Chuckie Knee! But he catches the Psycho Knee to clothesline Trent out!

Santana whips Chuckie into the stage! Hager drags Cassidy up and tags in Ortiz. Ortiz sets up for Santana to CANNONBALL onto Cassidy! Jericho is all fired up and Ortiz lifts Cassidy in the powerbomb. Santana climbs, but Cassidy fights! Chuckie shoves Chuckie down onto Hager! Cassidy wrenches, traps and cradles Ortiz, BEST FRIENDS WIN!!

Winners: Best Friends & Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Jericho is furious and he storms off commentary to help The Inner Circle beat down Cassidy, Chuckie and Trent! Floyd the bat comes with him! Baseball bat to Chuckie’s ribs! To Trent’s ribs! And to Cassidy’s HEAD! Jericho just hit a triple, but then PNP hits the powerbomb to Penalty Kick! The referee is intimidated into backing off, and Santana borrows Floyd. Ortiz shouts, “THE BEST! THE BEST!” and Jericho brings out bags and bags of actual oranges. Orange Cassidy comes face to face with his namesake, and they load the oranges into one bag. Jericho tells Cassidy, “You see what happens when you mess with the Inner Circle?” Cassidy is bleeding from the bat shot, but he gets the SUPER ORANGE MAD BALL!! And then again to the back! And to the side!

The blood oranges are beating the pulp out of Cassidy! “Blood Orange Cassidy has just been juiced.” Jericho takes a bite out of an orange while the others squeeze orange juice onto Cassidy. Is this the end of Freshly Squeezed? And what of Best Friends making it to Fyter Fest for their tag title opportunity?

 

AEW returns to Schiavone interviewing The Gunn Club.

But before he can ask Billy and his son Austin anything, MJF interrupts. He’s sure “Bill” would’ve had something interesting to say, but he wants Schiavone to be a good human mic stand for him. MJF says he has been undefeated for over a year, is the bearer of the beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring, and is THE #1 Contender for three consecutive weeks. Yet, “Jungle Jack Jabroni” got a title shot before him? Do these people think that make sense? Yes! Well you’re wrong, because it doesn’t! The favoritism in AEW is egregious! There is a reason why MJF is met with nothing but dirty looks. It’s all because the boys know that no matter how good they get in the ring, no matter how much they improve on the mic, or no matter how over they get over with the internet marks, they hit a ceiling. And you are looking at that ceiling! MJF is a Great White Shark in a sea full of minnows!

Well, Billy “hates to interrupt” the minnow, you’re looking at the Great White. Hurr hurr so funny, Billy. But what’s really funny is Billy not trying to get “another one of your scumbag, talent-less sons a job here in this company!” Austin takes offense, MJF shoves him but Billy gets in the way. Billy grabs MJF but MJF calls for his muscle, Wardlow. Billy tells MJF made a mistake tonight but things keep from exploding into brawling. Will this tension between MJF and the Gunns be settled in the ring?

 

Sammy Guevara VS Colt Cabana!

Le Champion picked a fight with Boom Boom, Colt Cabana and won. Cabana felt down, and the Dark Order offered him a place in their ranks. If Cabana doesn’t defeat the Spanish God, will he #JoinDarkOrder?

The bell rings and Sammy circles with Cabana. Sammy flips Cabana off right to his face. Right in his face, actually. So Cabana gives it back! Sammy doubles down but Cabana headlocks. Sammy powers out, things speed up, Sammy flips but Cabana stops himself to give back the double dirty birds. Sammy swings on Cabana but Cabana dodges to CHOP! Cabana mocks the stinging pain then whips Sammy. Sammy reverses, Cabana goes up and under and then CHOPS again! Cabana runs, ducks and tilt-o-whirls to headscissors! Sammy gets up but runs into an arm-drag! Cabana has Sammy down with an armlock and the crowd fires up. Sammy gets up, Cabana wrenches and wrenches to wristlock. Cabana twists Sammy’s hand all over, and makes him flip himself off!

Sammy gets the ropebreak and Cabana lets go quick, only for Sammy to throw him out! Then Sammy runs and FLIES out to take Cabana down! Sammy almost wrecks himself into the barriers, but he flexes and says he’s the Best Ever. Sammy goes into the ring to leave Cabana behind and AEW goes picture in picture.

Cabana gets up as the ring count climbs but Sammy blows kisses to the camera. Sammy drags Cabana in, covers, ONE! Sammy stays on Cabana at he ropes and stands on him to choke him! The ref counts, Sammy back-flips at 4 and shows off. Sammy kicks the rope to jam Cabana, then covers, TWO! Cabana gets to a corner but Sammy is on him with a CHOP! Sammy snapmares and runs, and runs, and runs, to strut into a chinlock. But Cabana turns that to a victory roll! TWO, and Sammy boots, only to be caught. Cabana spins Sammy but Sammy heel kicks! Cabana wobbles and falls, Sammy covers, TWO! Sammy keeps his cool as he grabs Cabana for a chinlock. Sammy grinds Cabana down but Cabana endures. They go to the mat but Cabana fights his way back up. Cabana throws body shots and gets free, but runs into a waistlock to headlock takeover!

Sammy leans on Cabana with the chinlock but Cabana again endures. Cabana fights his way up again and pries at the hold. Cabana powers up as AEW returns to single picture and he knees Sammy low. Cabana runs, but into a fireman’s carry! Sammy does squats to show off, but Cabana crucifix rolls and BIONIC ELBOWS Sammy down! Sammy flounders to a corner and Cabana runs in. Cabana blocks the first boot but not the second! Sammy hops up but Cabana sees it coming and scoots away. Sammy hops down and runs in, but Cabana BOOTS him in the stomach! Cabana ducks, jabs, jabs, and jabs, to flip, flop ‘n’ fly, BIONIC ELBOW! The crowd rallies up as Sammy returns to a corner. Cabana runs in, FLYING APPLE! Sammy is down, Cabana goes up and double guns, to leap! Sammy moves but Cabana short hops for the splash! Cover, TWO!

Cabana keeps his cool as he circles Sammy like a shark. Cabana drags Sammy up but Sammy ROCKS him with a right! Sammy whips Cabana to a corner, shoulder rams to the apron and enziguris, then springboards, but into Cabana’s hands for a TOSS! Cabana goes up, MOONSAULTS and hits! Cover, TWO!! Cabana is still smiling as Sammy crawls to a corner. Cabana drags Sammy up as the crowd rallies. He hoists Sammy onto the rope and then climbs up to join him. Cabana fireman’s carries but Sammy slips out and torture racks Cabana! G T H!! Cover, Sammy wins!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

The Spanish God gets Cabana as Cabana tried to go above and beyond. And here comes The Dark Order! Evil Uno and Stu Grayson have finally returned, but they are also accompanied by The Beaver Boys, Alan Angels and Preston Vance. Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 stand before their Exalted One, Brodie Lee. Mr. Brodie walks right up to Cabana and offers him a hand. Cabana takes it and Brodie helps him stand up. But no mask has been offered. The Dark Order leaves, and though Cabana hesitates, he does follow them. Is Cabana going to #JoinDarkOrder?

Sammy talks trash as the “big fat loser” leaves, because this is Sammy’s moment! The best damn wrestler AEW has is still going strong, but then Matt Hardy interrupts! What is “this moron’s” problem? Hardy says he has no issues. Then why is he here? Hardy wants to tell Sammy he respects him. When he looks at Sammy, he sees a younger Matt Hardy. He sees someone who has a never-say-die mentality and a death defying mindset. Regardless of how hard Sammy gets hit, he always gets back up. The reality is, Sammy IS the future of AEW. So here is some advice: to realize his maximum potential, Sammy has to leave Chris Jericho. Trust Hardy when he says that. Sammy doesn’t trust Hardy, because Hardy tried to kill him with a golf cart not just once, but twice! That’s a fact! Yes, a Matt-er of Fact!

V1 emerges and shares a fun fact: Matt is a great driver, and enjoys watching Sammy sprint away from golf carts. If Sammy had Hardy’s Matt-tributes- SHUT UP, MORON! Hardy coming out here is so stupid! Sammy doesn’t know if he’s dumb, stupid, BROKEN, whatever! Hardy changes and DAMASCUS shows himself! Samuel Guevara, Damascus joins him in the ring, for these events must be documented! Hardy will MASH Sammy into a Mafongo, and EAT YOU! EAT! EAT! DELETE! DELETE! Sammy has angered the spirit that dwells within this vessel known as Matt Hardy! Will the Spanish God learn to listen to the BROKEN BRILLIANCE?

 

AEW hears from Joey Janela.

“My name is Joey Janela, and I came to All Elite Wrestling to become a star.” But what happened? The Bad Boy went from wrestling Jon Moxley in an Unsanctioned main event, to fading into the background. Janela says he feels like his best moments are behind him. The crazy days of jumping off a roof to smash through a rack of fluorescent light tubes are definitely a distant memory. “Somewhere along the last six months or so, I lost my direction.” But Sonny Kiss is there to pick him up as if by fate. How will the story of the Bad Boy and the Concrete Rose play out on Dynamite?

 

Backstage interview with Colt Cabana.

Dasha tries to get him to talk about losing to Jericho and Sammy in subsequent weeks, and The Dark Order reaching out to him all the while, but he shrugs her off. He knocks on the door of The Dark Order, and they let him in. Will Cabana fall in line behind Mr. Brodie Lee?!

 

AEW sets up big for next week!

After that heated confrontation, Billy Gunn and MJF will have it out in the ring! Will the Ass Man kick Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s ass for everything his mouth has been saying? And of course, there’s the AEW World Tag Team Championship match! Can QT focus on his match and not his new (and meddling) girlfriend? Then, another AEW TNT Championship match will happen! Will Cody Rhodes make it through tonight to take on another hungry challenger? And after the beating the Inner Circle gave Orange Cassidy, the Best Friends look to avenge him against #LeSexGods, Jericho and Sammy! However, the title match at Fyter Fest is on the line! Trent and Chuckie are risking it all for friendship, but will it be worth it?

But that’s not all, as there will be even more tag team action! The Young Bucks take on the Superbad Squad for their part in tonight’s brawling! Will Matt & Nick Jackson show FTR that they really are the best tag team of the last 15 years?

 

Jon Moxley finally arrives!

The AEW World Champion is here, but he says he’s going to be honest with us. He is in a really bad mood, and not just because his neck hurts, his back hurts and because it hurts to sit on the toilet. That has him on edge, but he has no patience for people who run their mouth when they have no idea what they’re saying. Taz has been telling anyone that will listen that Brian Cage is going to beat Moxley at Fyter Fest? Well if Taz was trying to get under Mox’s skin, IT WORKED! Moxley cannot wait for Fyter Fest, so he can pop Cage’s head like a giant pimple and shut Taz up for good!

“Do you know what separates me from the pack in AEW? I am one miserable son of a b*tch!” The fact that Brian Cage thinks he can beat Mox pisses Mox off! The fact Taz thinks Cage can beat Mox pisses Mox off! The mere idea that anyone in AEW or pro-wrestling anywhere in the world thinks they can beat Mox pisses Mox off!! But it’s what drives Moxley to train harder, hit harder, be more violent and less apologetic. With all due respect to Taz as one of the greatest trash talkers of all time- Speaking of, Taz is here himself! Taz gets in Moxley’s face because he is hearing everything Moxley is saying about him. It’s all chirping! Enough of this! Get your head right because it’s all ending at Fyter Fest. And Cage comes running up behind Moxley to blindside him!!

Cage rains down rights on Moxley then drags him up to club him more! He throws Moxley into trash cans! And then drags him up, but Moxley pushes him into a corner! Moxley throws forearms, then swings a pipe! The car window is smashed but Cage comes back with fists! Cage bumps Moxley off the bumper, then hoists him up to ram him into a fence. SPINE BUSTER onto the car hood! Moxley writhes but Cage drags him up and brings him around. Taz says this is enough, because the message is sent. Cage doesn’t care, and he scoops Moxley to SLAM him on the car’s rear windshield!! Moxley writhes as Taz gets Cage out of there. Will this keep Fyter Fest from happening? Or will it only motivate Moxley to rage against The Machine even more?

 

AEW hears from Cody Rhodes.

“The reason for me to want to do an Open Challenge is I think an area where people have been critical of my skill set.” The American Nightmare taking a schedule like this, defending the title every week, only to bust himself open week one and then a furious offense from a younger talent, that moment had him thinking, “How did I get here? How will I stay here?” Cody pulled off the win despite all that, because that is how much this title means to him. Cody knows Marq Quen is a ferocious competitor in his own right, and the Open Challenge being what it is, you never know who you’ll get. A normally tag team competitor like Quen still has a chip on his shoulder and high level motivation. The TNT Championship has to be “varsity,” it has to be premier, top shelf, otherwise it doesn’t mean s*it. We’ll see Cody put it all on the line yet again in another main event!

AEW TNT Championship: Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS Marq Quen w/ Isiah Kassidy & Matt Hardy!

The Hardy Party might be happening as Matt accompanies Quen and Kassidy out. Quen has the confidence of his best friend and his new mentor behind him, but will he have enough skill to end the American Nightmare’s reign?

AEW returns as Cody and Coach Arn make their way out. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and the newest test of Cody’s legacy begins!

Cody shakes hands with Quen to show there is respect. They circle, tie up with knuckle locks, and go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength. Cody gets a leg but Quen clubs him off it. Cody respects that and throws a forearm! Quen throws it back and they brawl back and forth. Cody wobbles but he drop toeholds Quen down to an armlock. Quen fights his way up but Cody yanks on the arm. Cody wrenches, Quen headlocks back, but Cody powers out. Quen runs Cody over and lets out a “WOO~” Quen runs, Cody stays low, but Quen turns him over to standing moonsault! Cover, ONE! Quen stays on Cody with a scoop but Cody slips out to kick low. Rhodes Uppercut and Cody runs, to springboard into a dropkick! Cover, ONE but Quen keeps his cool.

Quen runs but Cody anchors a foot. Cody trips the other leg, slams the leg on the mat, then BUZZSAWS Quen down! Cover, ONE, but Cody does some push ups to show off. Cody drags Quen around to stand on the bad leg. Cody hooks the legs up and grabs at the arms. Quen resists but Cody brings him up for the surfboard, and adds a dragon sleeper! Quen endures but Cody shifts to the arm stretch. Quen fights and gets as AEW goes to picture in picture.

Cody still has wrist control on one arm and he drags Quen up. Quen throws hands but Cody whips him out of the ring. Cody then goes out to bring Quen up and bumps him off the apron. But Quen bumps Cody back! Quen gets in the ring, Cody follows, and Cody stomps the bad leg! Cody drags Quen by that leg to the ropes, to springboard stomp it! Quen clutches his ankle but Cody keeps stomping! The ref reprimands Cody and he backs off, but then stalks Quen back to ropes. Cody goes out to bring the leg around and SLAM it on the apron! Quen writhes in pain but Cody gets back in the ring to stay close. Cody double guns before he brings Quen up on the apron and TOSSES him back in!

Cody whips Quen to a corner, runs in, but into an elbow! Quen boots back, goes out to the apron and springboards, but his leg gives out! Cody covers, TWO! Cody keeps on the bad leg with a toehold, and then stomps away on Quen’s back. Quen kicks back from the mat but Cody catches the foot to bring it to the post! Cody pulls Quen into the post then throws some haymakers. The ref reprimands and Cody backs off, but then he hammers the knee! AEW returns to single picture as Cody slams the leg into the post! Quen writhes and crawls away but Cody stalks behind him. Quen PELES Cody away! The crowd rallies as Quen fires off fast hands in the corner! The ref backs Quen off, Quen argues, but Cody kicks the bad leg out!

Cody drags Quen up and hits a SHIN BREAKER! And then Cody hoists Quen up top and climbs up behind him. Quen fights back with elbows, then cravats for a SUPER SLICED BREAD! Both men are down but the crowd rallies with “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Quen and Cody slowly rise, Quen goes to a corner and QUEBRADAS! Direct hit but Quen keeps going. Quen whips, Cody slides under, kicks but no Rhodes Uppercut this time! Standing Shooting Star! Cover, TWO! Quen grows frustrated but he drags Cody up for a suplex. Cody blocks, suplexes back, but Quen lands on his feet, to then flip around and DDT!?! Cover, TWO!! Cody bails out of the ring but Quen builds speed to FLY! Direct hit topples Cody over! Quen gets back in the ring, runs again and FLIES again! Quen manages it, bad leg and all!

The crowd rallies as Quen gets back in the ring. Quen is just crazy enough to want a third, but he can’t with that bad leg. Cody returns but the bulldog is denied! Quen uses adrenaline for the FOSBURY FLOP!! Arn coaches Cody up but Quen puts Cody in. Quen covers, TWO! Cody is down but Quen heads up top. Arn coaches Cody but the crowd is on Quen’s side. Cody gets to the ramp but Quen just adjusts. Quen 450 SPLASHES TO THE RAMP!! Both men are down as the crowd loses their minds! Arn says this needs to get back in the ring, but Quen is the one who puts Cody in. The crowd duels and Quen takes his jacket off. Quen’s bad leg slows his climb, but he makes it up again. STANDING SHOOTING STAR, but he’s caught into the ANKLE LOCK!!

Quen scrambles, claws, bites his own hand to ignore the pain, but Cody drops down not to grapevine, but to have a modified Deathlock! Cody cranks on that leg as hard as he can with his own legs, and Quen taps! Cody wins!!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by submission (still AEW TNT Champion)

Marq Quen may not have won the match or the title, but he just won a lot of points with Cody and the rest of the AEW roster! Will Quen come back for another shot when he’s truly 100%? Who is next for the American Nightmare’s gauntlet of his own making? Actually, Jake Hager walks out and stares Cody down from the stage. He steps into the ring and goes after Arn! Cody goes after Hager but Hager elbows and TOSSES Cody away! And then hits a BODY SLAM! Private Party returns with chairs to go after Hager! Chair shot after chair shot rocks Hager, then Hardy clotheslines him out! The Big Hurt is furious and the Inner Circle comes out to reinforce him. It’s a brawl, 4v4!

Cody, Hardy and Private Party hold their own but the chair shots turn around on them! Referees rush out to stop this, but that’s not so easy! Cody swings on whoever, Hardy is after Guevara, TWIST OF FATE! The Inner Circle retreats and regroups, but Cody takes a mic. Hager wants a TNT Championship match for Fyter Fest, doesn’t he? Then he’s getting it! The Big Hurt and the American Nightmare are ready, but will Cody make it through his next two contenders to give us all that fight?


My Thoughts:

A really good episode once again, a lot of strong action and story with only five matches. FTR VS Butcher & Blade was good, and of course FTR wins. I liked the Bucks coming out and the brawl that we got from it. The Bucks will certainly beat the Superbad Squad, but I’m hoping we get a slow build to them having a match with FTR. Those two teams should basically have a round robin against all the other teams in the division before finally getting to each other at All Out 2020. Next week is definitely all about tag teams between both AEW and WWE, as we’re getting the AEW World Tag Championships on the line. The Natural Nightmares taking on Omega and Hangman is definitely to propel the story building between Allie, QT and the others. I feel like it might be too soon for Allie to spring whatever trap she’s set, but you can almost bet she’ll be why the Natural Nightmares lose.

The Six Man Tag was great stuff, and while Best Friends win, the Inner Circle gets creative with the beat down they gave. Using oranges in a super sized mad ball was poetic in a way. But now that Le Sex Gods might be able to swoop in and take the title match from Best Friends, things are getting really crazy. I’m betting Mike Tyson returns to distract Jericho to set up their own match and give Best Friends a way to win without really hurting the Inner Circle’s power level. Guevara VS Cabana was pretty good, but it was clear Cabana would lose to push him towards the Dark Order. This story is definitely going places, and I can’t wait to see what number Cabana is given, and if this brings things back around to the Dark Order’s issues with SCU.

We got great women’s action in the tag match. Shida and Statlander sure team up the most often, but it made some sense for them to lose. Penelope gets the pin because she and the Superbad Squad have been doing great work. Shida VS Ford would make for a really good match for Fyter Fest, but I’d go with Shida winning since she really only just got the belt. MJF had a good segment with Billy Gunn, but I feel like Wardlow will/should go after Austin to distract Billy for MJF to get a win. Moxley and Cage brawling in the parking lot was great, and is certainly giving Cage what he needs to be a credible threat. I’m still not sure of his chances at Fyter Fest, but it wouldn’t be out of the question for him to pull it off. Marq Quen looked great even in losing tonight, and I’m thinking Fyter Fest also features a Six Man of Inner Circle VS Hardy Party.

Cody VS Hager is more than likely what we’re getting for Fyter Fest, so the purpose of Cody’s next two matches will be for the purpose of piling on the damage. The story of Cody VS Hager will surely be Cody overcoming being far below 100% to survive Hager. Cody’s booking has all been good on paper, but the pacing seems rushed. His all or nothing attitude on the world championship was basically a year before it was needed, that’s for sure. His promo putting getting busted open last week in perspective does help, but trying to make it feel as if this first month is going to be hell going into a fight with Hager is the rushed part. Cody could hold back half a step and it’d still work in his favor since Hager is this monster, and any damage taken is a huge disadvantage. The idea that this schedule is going to drive him into the ground is being kicked into overdrive, as if Cody is trying to run himself ragged on purpose. But in the end, good matches will be good matches, and Cody still gives us something good each week.

My Score: 9.2/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Young Bucks speak.

“Why did we do what we did last week?” That is to say, they turned on Jon Moxley to save Kenny Omega. “Simple: We chose friendship.” Moxley, thanks for pushing them over the edge. This isn’t just a club of friends throwing up a hand gesture, but a family that loves. And as for Don Callis, he was right about one thing: the Bucks changed. In-ring, they’re still the best damn tag team. But backstage, they felt like frauds. They took the paydays and were no longer hungry. They let others change the narrative and take credit for their work. Matt tells Nick that he’s no longer content. They need to bring back the old Bucks. Or rather, show the world a newer, better version of themselves. What will these new Young Bucks look like in tonight’s AEW Tag Team Championship match?

 

Mike Tyson speaks.

“Hi, I’m Mike Tyson. And I’m so delighted to be tonight’s enforcer for Jericho’s-” But MJF interrupts “Mikey, Michael, the Mikenator” to ask what’s going on. Tyson asks what he’s doing here, and MJF says sure, he might’ve been barely born when Tyson was on top, but MJF’s dad said Tyson was a big deal so kudos to him. But the Pinnacle are a little peeved with Tyson over last week. Well Tyson’s mad, too! Of course! He has every right to be! And if anyone understands better than MJF, they don’t exist. MJF gets the idea of keeping friends close and enemies closer. Jericho is Tyson’s enemy, and if there was any time to strike, it’s right now! No, Tyson’s enemy is right in front of him.

MJF wants Tyson to slow down a second. All MJF is saying, he doesn’t need to cheat in this scenario. All MJF wants is Tyson to be on the right side of history. The last thing MJF wants for Tyson is to have regrets after tonight. Looking at Tyson’s face, there’s already one. But this right here is a blank check! Just think about it. Tyson takes that check, rips it up, and chews it to spit it in MJF’s face! MJF says he’ll remember that! Will Tyson make sure The Pinnacle gets what’s coming to them?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Death Triangle!

Matt & Nick promised to show us all a new side to them while still being THE best tag team in the world today! But will The Bastard & The Firebird ruin all of that right here to open Dynamite?

One thing that’s new is that they have Don Callis with them! The ring gear is of course new, as are the streamers flying through the air as opposed to Young Buck Bucks. The introductions are made as Callis joins commentary, the belts are raised and we begin to see if the new Bucks can prevent new champions from being crowned!

PAC and Matt start and circle as fans rally. They tie up, Pac powers Matt to a corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Pac pats Matt on the shoulder and Matt smirks as they reset. Matt and Pac tie up, Pac waistlocks, Matt switches but so does Pac. Matt drop toeholds, floats to facelock but Pac slips out to facelock back. Matt slips out to facelock but Pac wrenches out. Matt flips, kips up and wrenches to a wristlock. Pac uses ropes to flip through, wrench and headlock to the takeover! Matt headscissors, Pac kips free and he hits another headlock takeover, only for Matt to headscissor again. Again, Pac kips free but now Matt reverses the roles with his own headlock takeover.

Pac headscissors, Mat kips free and waves in Pac’s face. They go forehead to forehead, and Matt backs off, but to the wrong corner. Old habits die hard since he’s used to being on that side of the ring. Fenix laughs at Matt but Matt gets past Pac to tag out to Nick. Pac tags in Fenix and fans fire up as we see these two go again! Fenix and Nick approach, Fenix gets around to waistlock and ripcord but Nick waistlocks. Nick avoids elbows but not the trip up. Things speed up, Fenix handsprings over but Nick BOOTS him down! Nick goes to the apron, baits Fenix in, Nick backflips while Fenix tiger feints! Nick slides in as Fenix moonsaults out!

Matt gets moving, too, Fenix gets in but Nick sends Fenix to the ropes. Fenix tiger feints again but Nick avoids the heel kick! Fenix whips Nick, Nick slips around to arm-drag! Nick avoids the dropkick, Fenix avoids one now, and both men see the other ready to dropkick again, so they both stop right there. But then Nick CLOBBERS Fenix with a clothesline! The top teams in the rankings are in the crowd watching, from Jurassic Express and Best Friends to SoCal Uncensored and the Hardy Family Office’s Butcher & Blade. Nick drags Fenix over, tags Matt in, and the Bucks bring Fenix up to double whip. Nick back drops but Fenix uses that to RANA Matt!

Things speed up, Fenix springboards to FLYING HEADBUTT Nick! Pac gets in as the Bucks bail out, and he FLIES to take Matt out with a Fosbury Flop! Fenix DIVES to take Nick out into barriers! Fans fire up for Death Triangle as Fenix puts Matt back in. Fenix CHOPS Matt, pushes him down and ROCKS him with a forearm to the back of the head! Fenix scoops and SLAMS, then tags in Pac. Fenix stands on Matt, then Pac stands on Matt. Pac pushes Matt around, blocks Matt’s kick, and tags Fenix in. Fenix jumps over Matt, Pac spins him for Fenix to hold the foot, and Pac BOOTS Fenix in the back! Fenix spins Matt, Pac holds him, and Fenix SUPERKICKS Matt in the back!

Death Triangle double mule kick the legs, then they double BUZZSAW and double BASEMENT DROPKICK! Matt flops down and the fans fire up for Death Triangle! Cover, TWO!

Tag to Nick, he runs and PENALTY KICKS Pac from the apron! Nick shoulders into Fenix and SLINGSHOT FACEBUSTERS! Nick grins and hopes the camera caught that. Fans rally as Nick scrapes Fenix’s face with his soles! Nick shoes off the Nike Diors but fans chant, “Those are Fake! Those are Fake!”

Nick drags Fenix over, bumps him off buckles, then tags Matt. The Bucks drag Fenix up to double whip, double hip toss, then cartwheel and double basement dropkick! Matt covers rather arrogantly, TWO! Fans rally for Fenix as Matt stalks after Fenix. Matt CLAWS Fenix’s back, then tags in Nick. The Bucks double whip, double hip toss but Fenix uses ropes to rebound and DOUBLE ARM-DRAG! Fenix avoids one superkick, bobs ‘n’ weaves with Nick and tags Pac in! Pac springboards to missile dropkick Nick down! Pac gets around Matt to back kick, front kick and back kick, then SWEEP the legs! Pac SNAP BRAINBUSTERS! Cover, TWO!! Matt lives and fans can’t believe it!

Pac drags Matt up, bumps him off buckles, then brings him around to bump off other buckles! Matt flops and flounders, Pac stalks up behind him. Pac taunts Nick as he brings Matt up and Matt throws body shots, but Pac eggs him on. Pac KICKS Matt, and KICKS, and KICKS! Pac runs but Nick trips him! Pac ROCKS Nick but Matt WRECKS Pac! The Bucks stomp away on Pac, Fenix runs over but he gets mugged! Nick CLAWS Fenix’s back, Matt drags Pac up and Nick has Fenix. The Bucks put two out, and DOUBLE APRON BOMB!! Fans chant “Young Bucks Suck!” and the ref reprimands but the damage is done!

Matt puts Pac on the apron, tags in Nick, and Nick stomps Pac down. Fans still rally for Death Triangle but Nick drags Pac up to wrench and whip him hard in the corner. Nick runs in to SHINING WIZARD in the corner! Tag to Matt, he drags Pac up and pushes him into buckles. Matt goes corner to corner while Nick holds Pack in, Matt handsprings and CLAWS Pac’s back! Pac staggers but he brawls with Matt as AEW goes picture in picture!

Matt CLUBS Pac down, kicks him around, then drops knees on his head! Matt wraps on a chinlock and grinds Pac down. Pac endures, fights, but Matt leans all his weight on the hold. The ref checks but Pac gets his second wind and fights his way up. Pac breaks free to ROCK Matt with forearm after forearm! Pac sees Fenix return but Matt throws him by his hair! Tag to Nick, and Nick brings Pac around to bump off the buckle! Nick digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, and Matt mockingly pats Pac on the head. Nick snapmares Pac, tags to Matt, face scrape and slingshots senton! Matt drags Pac up but Pac fires forearms again!

Pac back kicks, Matt trips him and tags in Nick! Catapult into the GAMANGIRI! Nick springboards to STOMP Pac into Matt’s knees! AEW returns to single picture as the Bucks taunt Fenix and the ref has to keep him back. The Bucks fake a tag so that Matt can stand on Pac’s head! The ref reprimands the standing on head but doesn’t realize the tag was faked. Nick tags back in for real, the Bucks whip Pac but Pac avoids the double superkicks! Pac throws Nick out, then throws Matt out to follow! Pac crawls for his corner but Nick is there to trip Fenix off the apron! Pac doesn’t tag out, and Matt gets in to rally fans up, but they boo.

Matt mockingly reaches for a tag, tags off Pac, and fires himself up! Matt rallies on Pac with big lariats, and mockingly does his old mannerisms. Matt brings Pac in to scoop and SLAM! Matt drops to his knees as if he’s emotional, and fans boo. But Pac gets up to CLOBBER Matt! Fans fire up now as both men are down and a standing count begins. Matt and Pac crawl for their corners, hot tags to Nick and Fenix! Fenix springboards to CROSSBODY! Fenix runs corner to corner but Nick dodges. Nick runs in but Fenix makes him straddle the rope! Matt runs in, Fenix intercepts with a kick and knuckle lock!

Fenix CHOPS Matt, goes up and up and SUPERKICKS Nick before he rebounds to SUPER STEINER Nick! SUPERKICK for Matt, Fenix handsprings to DOUBLE CUTTER!! Cover, TWO!! Nick survives and no one can believe it! Pac returns, Fenix tags him in, and Death Triangle gets Nick set up, wheelbarrow to DUMDUM STOMPS! Then SUPERKICK to BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?!? The Bucks are still in this but fans are fired up! Pac drags Nick up but Nick jawbreakers! Tag to Matt and he runs in, but into a REBOUND GERMAN! Pac gets Matt back up with a dead lift, but Matt flails to get ropes! Fenix walks the tightrope to PENALTY KICK Matt!

Fenix FLIES to take Nick out, Pac GERMANS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Pac is beside himself but the fans are thunderous! Pac has Matt in a drop zone, he goes to a corner and climbs. Nick returns but Pac leaps over and comes back to BOOT! Matt SUPERKICKS Pac! Fenix SUPERKICKS Matt! Nick runs at Fenix, Fenix blocks the monkey flip, but Nick rebounds off ropes for a DESTROYER!! All four men are down but fans are thunderous again! “This is Awesome!” as Matt drags himself back into the ring. Fenix gets himself out of the ring while Matt and Pac stand. Pac and Matt throw forearms and haymakers back and forth, faster and faster!

Pac ROCKS Matt, runs in but Matt dumps him to the apron. Matt runs but Pac dumps Matt out! They brawl on the apron now! Pac HEADBUTTS Matt, but both Nick and Fenix trip their opponents off the apron! Fenix and Nick stare each other down, STEREO POISON-RANAS!! Nick takes Pac down, Fenix takes Matt down, but now they stare each other down. Fenix runs in, Nick tosses him over the railing, but Fenix lands on his feet! Fenix tries a springboard, but Nick SUPERKICKS him off the railing! Fenix still comes back, somersault CUTTER!! All four men are down on the outside now as fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

New Bucks? Old Bucks? Better bucks? Worse Bucks? All that and more! Don Callis is proud of these two, since they sold their souls to him! Will Matt & Nick continue to be the champions by any means necessary?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page and The Dark Order.

The number one ranked male singles wrestler and his new friends are here, and Alex Marvez wants to ask him about everything going on with Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers and the Young Bucks. Hangman chugs his drink then says he’s glad Marvez is here. Quick update on John Silver’s shoulder- Ow! Wait, isn’t it the other shoulder that was hurt? Yeah but Hangman’s slap to the arm hurt this one… Well give it another four to six weeks after some vitamins, prayers and egg rolls. Speaking of, Hangman’s gonna go get some egg rolls. Are the Dark Order in? YEAH! Alright! That didn’t answer…

Rehab time, Johnny! Silver lifts the bad arm all the way to 90 degrees! AWESOME! Will the Meat Man be back so that he and Alex Reynolds can chase those AEW Tag Team Championships?

 

Backstage interview with Mike Tyson & The Inner Circle.

The last time Tyson was in AEW, he and Jericho were enemies. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, but why? Jericho says it’s because over a month ago, when the Inner Circle received the most vicious beating of their careers from The Pineapp- No, the Pinnacle, they decided to change their ways, have a new attitude, and right some of the wrongs they’ve committed. Jericho called some of the people he felt he owed an apology to. The first was to Tyson, the greatest boxing champion ever. But after being at each other’s throats for over 10 years from a 2010 knockout on a Monday night, Jericho realized he has a lot of respect for Tyson, because Tyson has remained relevant and stand on top for 30 years, just like Jericho.

Jericho told Tyson how he felt, and Tyson said if Jericho ever needed anything, he’d be there. And that’s when Jericho asked Tyson to have their backs against “My Jerkoff Friend and his band of sour men.” Tyson had their backs, and will be the special enforcer for Jericho VS Dax, a man who just a few weeks ago, the Inner Circle put 10 stitches in his head. But though Tyson is the special enforcer, Jericho wants him to call this down the middle. Tyson says he’s firm but fair. So may the best man win. Tyson is happy to be a friend, but he won’t take a side. If Jericho messes up, Tyson will knock him out again. Tyson doesn’t want that, and Jericho doesn’t either because he still remembers that punch. But there it is! Tyson is fair, firm and enforcing the match tonight!

 

Red Velvet VS Jade Cargill!

Though Velvet and Cody Rhodes lost to the giants at the Crossroads, she and Jade are going to stir it up 1v1 to finally settle things! Will Velvet be serving up L’s? Or will Jade prove she is not just a storm, but #ThatBitch in AEW?

The second Jade jumps into the ring, Velvet attacks! The bell rings, they brawl and Velvet uses her boxing background to fire off! The ref backs Velvet off and Jade BOOTS Velvet right down! Jade clutches her arm but still stalks some trash. Velvet comes back to dropkick Jade into a corner! Jade kicks low and hard, then brings Velvet up to scoop. Velvet slips out to HOOK KICK! Jade staggers around, Velvet waits, and then baits Jade in to dump Jade out! Fans fire up as Velvet builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Jade hits railing! Fans are thunderous with Velvet as she stalks Jade. Velvet CLUBS Jade, whips her but Jade reverses to send Velvet into railing!

Jade scoops Velvet to taunt her friends, and then FALL AWAY SLAMS Velvet into the crowd of wrestlers! KiLynn King, Tesha Price and others are the collateral from that one! Jade goes into the ring, the others help Velvet up but she drags herself to ringside. Velvet is in at 5 of 10, and Jade smirks as she counts her abs. Jade ROCKS Velvet, hauls her up the ropes, and suplexes Velvet to hold her up for a SLAM! Jade kips up and she soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.

Jade stomps Velvet in a corner, stomps harder, and digs her boot in deep! Jade lets off as the ref counts, but Velvet fires off hands! Jade chokes Velvet into a buckle! The ref counts, Jade lets off and stomps Velvet again. Jade whips Velvet corner to corner so hard, Velvet goes through the gap and ends up on the apron! Jade drags Velvet back in, to ROPE GUILLOTINE! Jade drags Velvet over, turns her over and soaks up the heat as she drags Velvet back up. Jade talks trash but Velvet pie faces her! Jade pie faces back, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Velvet lands on her feet! Velvet swings on Jade but into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Velvet survives, Jade grows annoyed, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns, Velvet SCREW HIGH KICKS Jade hard! Jade is in a corner, she dodges but then Velvet dodges and Jade POSTS herself! Fans rally with “Stir It Up!” as Jade and Velvet rise. Velvet LARIATS but Jade stays up! Velvet LARIATS again, Jade wobbles! Velvet dodges Jade to LEAPING LARIAT and bring Jade down! Fans are thunderous as Velvet runs and wheelbarrows, to BULLDOG! Velvet says, “I’M That Bitch!” Velvet stirs it up, has a taste, and STANDING MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Velvet drags Jade to a drop zone, goes up top and MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Jade moves! Jade drags Velvet into the chicken wings, JADED SLAM!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

Velvet miscalculates, and Jade gets another win off her! Will Jade drag Velvet out of the top five to head for the title in her own right?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker and Rebel.

The Doctor has been pulling double duty on Dark and Elevation, and she has “breaking news” regarding the AEW Rankings! Britt “respects” the system, and is now #3 at her 7-1 record for 2021. Anyone below her, irrelevant. But Red Velvet just lost by Jade Cargill, so she’s 5-1. Britt has two more wins than Velvet, so logic says she is now #2. And she promises she’ll work her way up the ranking so that she will be on Elevation this Monday. Then the people will get what we deserve: The Role Model as AEW Women’s’ World Champion, and not Hikaru Shida. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker, DMD.

 

Anthony Ogogo w/ The Factory VS Cole Karter!

The 2021 Olympic Middleweight Boxing Bronze Medalist for Team Great Britain is now here, QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solow in his corner! Will #TheGovenah lay down the law for The Thoroughbred?

Ogogo gets in Karter’s face, then the bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock for a moment, and Ogogo puts Karter in a corner. Ogogo lets off, shoves Karter, but Karter comes back to get a waistlock. Ogogo pries free to switch, but Karter pries free to arm-drag! Ogogo BODY SHOTS hard! That’s a TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT!

Winner: Anthony Ogogo, by referee decision

The crown jewel of QT’s Factory hits hard and fast, and makes his money even faster! Will Ogogo go for gold, while also going for the jugular?

 

Miro speaks.

“Here I am. They told me to show up again today.” But Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford have been avoiding him. He wants to smooth things over, but Kip knows Miro hates wasting time. So Miro is moving on, with or without him, to become champion! IF you work for this company and have gold, you better pull a Kip and disappear before The Best Man finds you, too!

 

Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Chris Jericho w/ Sammy Guevara, Special Enforce Mike Tyson!

The Pinnacle attacked the Inner Circle, the Inner Circle hit back, and we’re heading for BLOOD & GUTS! But before that, FTR wants to make sure Y2J understands who is who, and why he should #FearTheRevelation! But will Jericho make sure Dax is never, ever, EEEEEEVER the same… agayn?

Tully makes his entrance with FTR but he has to remember that other than Cash and the Spanish God, no other members of either faction is allowed ringside for this! The ref tells Tully to scram! Tully reluctantly steps out of the ring and up the ramp as the bell rings. Jericho and Dax stare down, circle and fire off fists! Jericho backs Dax down, rocks him and whips him, then CLOBBERS him! Dax flounders up and Jericho DECKS him! Dax bails out, regroups with Cash, and Jericho gets a CHAIR! Jericho brings that chair around but Tyson intercepts. This is not a disqualification match! Dax CLOBBERS Jericho! And bumps Jericho off the apron!

Dax CHOPS Jericho, then grabs Floyd the Baseball Bat, but Tyson takes the bat from him, too! Jericho ROCKS Dax, and whips him into railing!

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks, and the rest of the Biz Cliz!

Matt & Nick, Kenny, Callis and the Good Brothers were just about to leave but Alex Marvez wants to talk with them. Clearly, these guys have changed the wrestling world again. Does AEW want a scoop? Well here’s the scoop! Get out of the way, Marvez! Callis has the mic to say, “If the wrestling world has learned one thing about all of us, it’s this: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t seen anything.” When the Bucks came back into the fold as the greatest tag team of the last 2000 YEARS, they came back to the family. This isn’t the end of the story, this is just the beginning!

Omega says they’re listening to “the interwebs, the radios, the podcasts, the people on the telly,” they all want to know why he and the Bucks have changed. They haven’t changed! They just got sick and tired of being what we want them to be. They’re sick of you non-sport numb-nuts wanting them to be just like you! They’re not like you! They’re them! That’s where you find success! And that’s why wherever they go, the gold follows. Matt says that this is fine, this is great, but this isn’t all fun and games. Didn’t you see the match they had? Matches of the year just pour out of Matt’s ear! The Bucks are BACK, and the AEW Tag Division has been put on notice!

So whether it’s SCU, Jurassic Express, Best Friends, Butcher & Blade or whatever they go by, you’ve all got BTE Triggers with your damn names on them! Callis says this is what it is! You wanted the old Omega? You got him! You wanted the old Bucks? BAH GAWD, you got them, too! So if you learn one thing, learn this: prepare to be surprised again! The Bucks fake out the cameraman with superkicks, but then CALLIS Superkicks!! NERD! Will all of AEW soon belong to the Biz Cliz?

 

Thunder Rosa speaks.

“As you have seen, I’m not only taking over the AEW Women’s Division, I’m taking over the world.” She doesn’t just want the AEW Women’s World Championship, she wants the NWA Women’s World Championship! Rosa is back on top, and whoever wins between Hikaru Shida and Tay Conti, she’ll go after you and that title. And Serena Deeb, she’s been missed. She has something that belongs to Rosa, too. Rosa is waiting for everyone because she is going to take over everything!

 

Kris Statlander w/ Best Friends VS Amber Nova!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is officially back in action, even after helping Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor & #JustTrent in Arcade Anarchy. Will she continue to be out of this world as she takes on Ms. Super Nova?

The bell rings and Kris wants to boop. She boops the ref! Kris and Nova tie up, go around, and Kris puts Nova in a corner. Nova goes up the ropes but Kris lets her go and Nova falls! Nova gets up in a huff, runs but Kris dodges to arm-drag her around! Kris then boops Nova! Fans fire up for the booping as Kriss blocks the heel kick! Kris spins Nova to ROCK her! Kris whips, scoops and POWERSLAMS! Fans fire up as Kris brings Nova back up. Nova hits back, kicks low, and pie faces her. “You’re not an alien!” Kris choke grips then military presses Nova to DROP her! Kris drags Nova into the handstand LEG DROP, and FLIPPING SENTON!

Kris gives a thumbs up and Cassidy returns it. Nova gets up, Kris runs corner to corner at her, and uppercuts! Kris goes side to side to KNEE Nova down! Nova flounders back up, Kris ROUNDHOUSES her back down! Kris gets Nova up, gut wrenches, tucks her in, and hits the BIG BANG THEORY!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is 100% and is definitely back! Group hug! But will Kris skyrocket into the top five to be back where she left off?

 

Backstage interview with Team Taz.

They made an offer to Christian Cage last week to join them, but have they heard back? It’s been just a week, but no they haven’t. Ricky Starks brings up that they waited months on Powerhouse Will Hobbs, no offense to him. But why waiting a week on Christian!? They shouldn’t even wait an hour! It doesn’t matter who he is! Taz tells Starks to calm down, it is annoying. But it is best for Team Taz, if they are to lock Christian in, to have Starks hang backstage since he’s getting a little heated. Brian Cage agrees, because Starks has been a little indifferent.

Taz doesn’t want to do this on camera, but maybe Brian should hang back, too. Let Taz, Hook and Hobbs handle this. Tonight, they will convince Christian to join up! But will that really be the case?

 

AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is in the ring!

There’s a lot to talk about, and he welcomes the one and only Captain Charisma! Christian Cage is back, and he asked for this time to say this is the first time these two have had a chance to do this! What a thrill! Tony Khan gave him an open challenge contract and he’s here to use it. He wants to #OutworkEveryone, so- But then Taz interrupts! It’s been a full week, and Taz doesn’t like that he didn’t get so much as a return text message after the amazing opportunity he offered! Christian didn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE Taz’s request. Is he in or out!? Christian says he was going to do this later on in private like a professional but he’s out here so let’s do this now.

Christian says Taz just admitted himself earlier, Team Taz is a bit of a dumpster fire right now. The thing is, Christian didn’t come here to help Taz fix his problems, but to win championships! Christian will give his answer, and it’s good that Taz is standing on those steps so they can be face-to-face. Christian’s answer… is NO! Oh, well here’s the deal, SHITBAG! As far as Taz’s height, standing on his wallet would make him 10 feet taller! Oh that bingo hall money? YEAH that bingo hall money! And AEW money, too! But Christian just made the biggest mistake ever! Taz never liked Christian or his stupid friend who carried his ass, and then he has the audacity to wear Taz’s colors out here!

Hobbs has Taz calm down, and then he goes to the ring. Is Hobbs answering the open challenge?! Hobbs swings on Christian but Christian dodges to fire off haymakers! Hobbs KNEES low, talks trash, then gets Christian up to scoop, but Christian slips out to hook the arms! Speaking off hook, Hook distracts Christian on the apron! Christian swipes at him, Hook gets away, and Christian turns around into Hobb’s BODY TACKLE! Hobbs looms over Christian, Hook regroups with his dad, and fans chant, “Team Taz Sucks!” as Hobbs throws Christian into railing! Hobbs hauls Christian up to RAM him into railing again! Christian flounders, Hobbs smirks as he looms over him, then talks more trash.

Hobbs hauls Christian back up to POP-UP FLAPJACK Christian to the floor! Christian crawls away but Taz and Hook are at the ramp. Hobbs snarls as he stalks Christian to the steel steps. Hobbs hauls Cage up to SMACK him off the steel! And then stand on his head against the steps! Hobbs lets off, and leaves Christian down on the ground in a heap! No open challenge match tonight, but will Christian demand he get payback on the Powerhouse?

 

AEW has big plans for next week!

With Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker both clamoring for their chance, the #1 Contender gets hers! Tay Conti takes on her friendly rival and recent tag partner, Hikaru Shida, for the AEW Women’s World Championship! Tay speaks, saying that consistent hard work leads to success, and that now is her time. Shida says she wants to wrestle in sold out arenas as champion. Now it’s time to fight! Who comes out of this with the gold around their waists?

And after what we just saw, Hobbs and Christian WILL have a match next week! Will Christian be able to outwork a pure, unadulterated powerhouse? And while Hangman is THE #1 contender in the Men’s Singles Division, Ricky Starks is nipping at his heels! Will Absolute push the Cowboy out of the way on the path to the Best Bout Machine? Then, as Best Friends being their revenge tour on Death Triangle, #JustTrent takes on Penta El Zero Miedo 1v1! Will this be the first in the series for Best Friends to get back at their old foes?

 

AEW TNT Championship Falls County Anywhere: Darby Allin VS Matt Hardy!

The Face of the Network may be Relentless, but if Big Money Matt is to be trusted, there won’t be interference from the Hardy Family Office. Will Darby really only have to worry about Hardy and not Butcher, Blade, Bunny and/or Private Party? Or is the truth rarely the truth with Hardy these days?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Big Money cashes in big time in the main event!

Hardy gets a chair right at the bell, and Darby is wary. Darby dodges the chair shot, fires off haymakers, then runs, but springboards into a SMACK! Darby writhes, Hardy gets the chair up to JAM him in the stomach! Hardy looms over Darby, lines up his shot and SMACKS him again! Darby writhes out of the ring, flounders around, and we see Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky watching from Darby’s usual perch. All Ego & The Face of the Revolution still feel snubbed so they want to see Darby get destroyed for it. Hardy runs but Darby avoids another chair shot to fire off forearms! Hardy JAMS Darby again, SMACKS him another time, and then puts the chair aside put dig hands into Darby’s face!

Hardy DECKS Darby, drags him up and brings him around to smear into the apron! Hardy dribbles Darby’s face off the apron, puts him in and then gets the chair again. Fans rally for Darby as Hardy paces. Hardy takes a seat to watch Darby crawl as fans chant, “Hardy Sucks!” Darby sits up but Hardy ROCKS him! And DECKS him! Hardy gets the chair again, paces around like a shark with blood in the water, and that’s literal because Darby’s back is cut up. Hardy JAMS Darby with the chair into the waist! Hardy gets Darby up but Darby ROCKS Hardy with big palm strikes! Darby fires off forearms, but Hardy kicks low! NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!

Hardy seethes as he gets the chair again. Hardy sits the chair up again, brings Darby over and BOUNCES Darby’s head off the seat! Fans boo, Hardy drags Darby back up but Darby is a rag doll! Hardy gets the chair, stalks Darby as the ref checks on him, and Hardy SMACKS Darby again! Fans boo but Hardy soaks up the heat while Darby writhes on the mat. Hardy drags Darby back over to the chair, puts Darby through the chair, and then brings Darby up! FULL METAL- NO! Darby fights free and uses the chair to RAM Hardy! And SMACK him with it! Darby fires off more SMACKS and fans want “One More Time!” Darby obliges and SMACKS again!

But here come Butcher, Blade & Bunny! That promise was just lip service! Butcher CHUCKS a trash can at Darby’s head!! Direct hit and Darby goes down! Private Party also join in, and Hardy has the HFO mug Darby! Quen & Kassidy stomp Darby, Butcher & Blade bring steel steps over! The steps are set up near a corner of the ringside area, but the Dark Order make the save! They go after the HFO, and IT’S STIIIIING! The Icon has his bat, he TOSSES Kassidy, JAMS Quen, and then brings Kassidy up to TOSS him at Quen! Sting gets in, gets the trash can and SMACKS Kassidy! Then Sting runs to DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Private Party out of the ring!

Hardy and Darby ended up by the timekeeper’s area and fans chant “This is Awesome!” as AEW goes picture in picture!

Darby throws hands on Hardy against the stage wall! Sting keeps on Private Party while all of Dark Order brawls with Butcher & Blade! Darby drags Hardy up, brings him around and bumps him off the apron. Darby gets the trash can, brings it out and SMACKS Hardy! And SMACKS him again! Hardy flounders, Darby brings him over, and goes to suplex. Hardy counters to GOURD BUSTER Darby onto the trash can! Uno & Stu RAM Butcher into stage wall, Sting SMACKS Kassidy off steel steps. Hardy covers, TWO! Darby is still in this, but Hardy chokes him on the timekeeper’s table! Hardy rains down rights while his HFO get mugged over and over.

Hardy backs off, Sting SMACKS Quen off steps. Darby gets up, Hardy ROCKS him again, and Hardy gets the trash can. Darby fights back with haymakers! Darby uses the crushed can to RAM Hardy down! Darby fires up while his allies keep HFO at bay. Darby brings Hardy around, CHOPS him against the stage wall, and Sting throws Private Party into each other. Hardy ROCKS Darby and whips him into the stage wall! Hardy staggers around, brings Darby back up, but Darby RAMS him into the stage! AEW returns to single picture as Darby whips but Hardy reverses. Darby leaps over steel steps but COLLIDES with railing! Fans lose their minds as Hardy pursues.

Sting and Private Party are in the ring again while Hardy covers Darby, TWO! Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky have appeared ringside! They creep up on Sting, but LANCE ARCHER is there! The Murderhawk Monster makes sure they stay back, and Sting gets Private Party in double dragon sleepers, but then he sees Archer getting in the ring?! Is Archer just staking a claim to the prey?! But then Archer drags Kassidy up to the top rope, inverted crucifix for the BLACKOUT BOMB!! Hardy bowls Darby through the crowd of wrestlers while Archer goes out to get Quen and Kassidy! Hardy chases Darby up the ramp, has a chair, but sees what happened to his HFO!

Darby gets the chair from him to JAM him! And tackle him for a rain of fists! Sting tosses Darby the bat! Almost a passing of the torch as Darby aims at Hardy. Hardy begs for mercy but he won’t get any, so Hardy LOW BLOWS first!! Darby drops the bat as Hardy gets two balls! Hardy puts Darby through another chair! FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!!! Hardy crawls to cover Darby on the stage, TWO!?!?! Darby still lives and that shocks Hardy! Fans are thunderous, Hardy drags Darby up and throws him down the tunnel! They go to gorilla now as Hardy elbows away on Darby. Hardy BOWLS Darby into the monitors!

Hardy gets a ladder! Hardy sets it up near a table and he drags Darby over. Hardy puts Darby on the table, rains down rights and lefts, then climbs the ladder. Hardy powers up, and SUPER LEG DROPS through the table!! Cover in the wreckage, TWO!??!?! How did Darby survive!?! Hardy is furious and fans are thunderous as ever! Hardy drags Darby from the wreckage, back out the other tunnel to the stage. Hardy throws Darby and fans chant, “Hardy Sucks!” Darby crawls, Hardy points to where Sting’s bat ended up, and then drags Darby up. Hardy CLUBS away on Darby’s back, hauls him up, and Canadian racks, but Darby slips free to LOW BLOW! With interest!

Darby flounders but gets Sting’s bat back! Darby brings the bat to where Hardy is on the stage, and Hardy is by commentary. Darby rushes in to SLUG Hardy in the stomach, then the back, then JAM him in the head! Then he CRACKS Hardy in the ribs while he’s down! Darby SMACKS all the monitors off the commentary table! Fans fire up with his rage as Darby chokes Hardy! Darby drags Hardy onto the announce desk and then JAMS Hardy in the head! Darby won’t end it here, he goes up to the girders!! SUPER COFFIN DROP!!! Cover, Darby wins!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

Hardy said he’d show us how extreme he can still be, but Darby showed us what “extreme” really means! The Face of the Network is STILL Relentless, but who’s next to roll the dice with him?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode! A lot of great progress in the stories, great action in the matches, it’s just great. The tag titles opening has become the natural move for AEW, and it was a great match with the Bucks showing us their new Heel personas that really do poke fun at everything they’ve been before this point. Their promo before the match to actually open the episode was also good to put that in perspective, and we got a good group promo with them and this new form of the Elite/Bullet Club. Callis giving the superkick was a nice little twist, I wonder if another group of five steps up to take these guys on in maybe not Blood & Guts but a Stadium Stampede sequel.

If it were anyone, it should be Hangman and the main four of Dark Order, i.e. Uno, Stu, Reynolds & Silver. Hangman is the #1 contender, is going to have an absolutely awesome match with Ricky Starks next week, and will certainly circle back to facing Omega again. It was good story that he ignored the questions about the new Elite during the interview, because he’ll have to face them eventually, but he can’t deal with that right now so he won’t. Silver is almost back from his bad arm, he and Reynolds can have some great matches with the Good Brothers. The Bucks are going to have great matches with any team they face, I hope they work from #5 to #1 in a countdown.

If SCU maintains their #1 rank, they can really build the “titles or bust” story for Daniels & Kazarian until they have just the most amazing match AEW has seen yet, and the crowd either explodes because SCU wins the titles, or still explodes because SCU loses their last match together. It’s how things have to go, it just has to. Velvet VS Cargill was great, and naturally Cargill won to maintain her strength. She needs to be getting more matches in, though. She needs to catch up to that top five to really make her feel like she is this strong. Speaking of, I like that Britt is giving us the ranking updates “in real time” to add onto her story of making AEW accountable for saying wins and losses matter.

Rosa had a really good promo to restate her mission to get both women’s titles, and Shida VS Tay happening next week is awesome! It’s been a point of contention that AEW hasn’t put as much into their Women’s Division but now they are and that’s great. I don’t think Tay takes the title off Shida, because there’s also Double or Nothing 2021 to consider. Shida could have a big defense as the one year anniversary to getting the title off Nyla Rose, so maybe that is where Britt or Rosa gets their shot and their own big PPV title win. And after that, things freshen up as Britt or Rosa takes on the other contenders, from Big Swole to Red Velvet to Kris Statlander, who also got back on track with her return win.

Team Taz ups the ante with Christian Cage as the open challenge never really happens. I would still harp on Christian not really being a workhorse but he did take a lot of bumps from Hobbs here so that was a good amount of work. Christian VS Hobbs will be very good, and I did like that we got more dysfunction in the team with Starks and Brian Cage. That FTW Championship match is still happening, I am sure of it. Miro’s ultimatum to Kip and all the title holders was great. I’m pretty sure Kip lets Miro do things his own way, and Miro goes right for the TNT title.

And of course, that TNT Championship Falls Count Anywhere was AMAZING. Naturally, the HFO did NOT stay out of this, they had great brawling with the Dark Order, and it’s great for Darby to get the win. Darby can probably keep winning until Double or Nothing, maybe against Miro, maybe against either Ethan Page or Scorpio Sky since they’re still hanging around, or maybe even Archer since he got in on things. The TNT Championship definitely is where the real workhorses wrestle, and whoever wins this title could probably go against Christian Cage at some point because of his #OutworkEveryone catchphrase.

My Score: 9.4/10

The bell rings and “The Man Scout” reluctantly puts his scout manual away. Manning and Cabana tie up, and Cabana scoop SLAMS Manning!

This is where it stops for now, but this is definitely going to explode on Dynamite!

QT Marshall and Nick Comoroto won big for their brand new faction, and now it’s time for the Extra Talented to get his! Will he put out the Fire of the Sun and prove everyone should come work for The Factory?

The Extra Talented put something extra on that one! Will The Factory dominate all of AEW?

 

Ryan Nemeth speaks.

“Every week, every show, every match, every opponent, The Hollywood Hunk proves he is a dominant force in AEW.” Looking at the numbers alone, Nemeth wins nearly half the time. Whether it’s Nemeth and Reynolds with Negative One, Tay Conti, whoever, Nemeth isn’t afraid of the cronies. Reynolds is technically sound, good looking, and a winner. But he is no hunk. Will Nemeth be looking his best against Number 3 of the Dark Order?

 

Six Man Tag: The Gunn Club VS Stone Rockwell, Mike Magnum & Andrew Palace!

Billy and his boys are still rolling as an undefeated trio! But they’re up against some pretty big guns on the other side! Will the Gunn Club finally be outdrawn in the Dark?

Madi ended up facing reality that she isn’t ready to dethrone The King! But will King prove she can be the champion of this division?

 

Alex Reynolds speaks.

“Tonight, State Farm presents: The Hollywood Hunk, Ryan Nemeth VS The Handsome Devil, Alex Reynolds.” Negative One says Nemeth was his babysitter. He sat on Negative One? Negative One is fired up, and wants to attack! Relax, Nemeth isn’t in the camera. Save it for the ring. Reynolds says that he isn’t taking this lightly. He and John Silver talked with the State Farm Superfan, Aaron, and came up with some moves to debut tonight. Reynolds has tricks up his sleeves. He won’t just win this for him or the Dark Order, but for Aaron and State Farm! Because like a good neighbor~, State Farm is there~! Will Nemeth need insurance for what could happen to his good looks?

 

Matt Hardy w/ The Hardy Family Office VS Ken Broadway!

The truth is the truth, and the truth is that Big Money Matt is going for gold! But will Hardy be rolling into his TNT Championship showdown with Darby Allin?

Broadway also knows how to make it rain, and the HFO scoop up some of that to add to their revenue. The bell rings and Darby Allin is watching from his usual spot in the bleachers. Broadway and Hardy tie up, Hardy wrenches to an elbow breaker then a wristlock. Broadway spins and wrenches and wristlocks back!

Hardy gets him for a SIDE EFFECT!

Hardy shouts, “The truth is the truth!” He points to Darby and says, “This is you tomorrow night!” Hardy drags Broadway up for a TWIST OF FATE! Darby dares Hardy to bring it, but Hardy drags Broadway into THE LEECH HOLD!! Broadway taps, Hardy wins!

Winner: Matt Hardy, by submission

The HFO celebrates with Hardy but Darby still dares Hardy to bring it as he holds up his TNT Championship. Hardy gets a mic and tells Darby, “Listen to me very closely. Tomorrow nigh to Dynamite, in Falls Count Anywhere, I am going to show you just how extreme Big Money Matt can still be! And I promise you, Darby, I am going to leech the TNT title from around your waist!” Will Hardy put his money where his mouth is when he and Darby can fight all over Daily’s Place?

 

Evil Uno & Stu Grayson w/ The Dark Order VS Vary Morales & Spencer Slade!

The Doctor smothers the schoolgirl to teach her a lesson: Don’t punch above your proverbial weight class. Will Britt become the role model and the workhorse of the AEW Women’s Division?

 

Brian Cage & Ricky Starks w/ Team Taz VS Carlie Bravo & Dean Alexander!

The #AbsoluteMachines have been rather dysfunctional lately, but the old saying is that winning fixes everything. Will Cage & Starks take care of the #GoonPlatoon and The Sensation and put the past behind them?

Taz is confused as to why Starks is doing all this, as Starks gets Bravo up and tells Cage to end this! Cage suplexes to DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Team Taz wins!

Winners: Brian Cage & Ricky Starks, by pinfall

Starks gets a lot of assists here, and shares in the win as he hands Cage his FTW Championship. Is this a sign that Team Taz is united? Or is Starks being that passive aggressive?

 

Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Leila Grey!

The Native Beast is hungry for another chance at the AEW Women’s World Championship, and she’s got a Top Tier appetizer in front of her! Will this be a bite-sized snack before going after the champ?

Now get the HELL out of the ring! Vickie introduces “the most feared and destructive woman in all of wrestling history,” Vickie’s client, NYLA ROSE!

Grey is going to be black ‘n’ blue in the morning after this one. Vickie says she told us so! Nyla grins as she gets a taste, but will her appetite only be appeased when she gets after Hikaru Shida?

 

The Varsity Blondes VS Prince Kai and Will Allday!

Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr. have been on a roll, but there’s still a long road ahead of them. Will the Ivy League MVP and Bulletproof BPJ get another A+ after taking on the Prince Charming of Wrestling and Mr. All Day Every Day?

The teams sort out, BPJ starts against Allday, and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Allday arm-drags BPJ away. BPJ runs back to tie up again, gets the arm and wrenches.

Jake thanks Excalibur and Taz for their time, and says he and Archer are gonna go for cheeseburgers. Will Archer only be satisfied when he gets to eat everyone else in AEW alive?

 

Ryan Nemeth w/ JD Drake VS Alex Reynolds w/ The Dark Order!

We heard the Hollywood Hunk throw some shade on Number 3, but now we’re in the Dark main event! Will Nemeth score lots of points before he gets the 1-2-3? Or will that 50% win-loss ratio tip in Reynolds’ favor tonight?

Big thanks from the Dark Order to Superfan Aaron for unlocking those moves in Number 3! Will everyone get out of the way of the HONK HONK as Dark Order storms down the tracks?


My Thoughts:

A good Dark, mostly because it was an hour and 35 minutes, but it was still a lot of matches crammed into that time. AEW is probably going to continue to be unpredictable with episode lengths and match totals so I don’t know if I can maintain doing Dark and Elevation when I’m also covering WWE’s Raw and NXT on these same days. I feel like the SCU’s matches need to be Elevation by default because of their self-challenge of “next time we lose, we break up” angle. That said, it’s also a giveaway that these two aren’t losing before getting a title opportunity, so maybe that’s why they’re still being put on Dark.

I also feel like Velvet should be on Elevation if she and Jade are going to be getting after each other. They’re supposed to be the rising stars but they weren’t on the show that’s about rising stars in exchange for… Well, Elevation actually had a lot of solid matches worthy of it, but they could’ve still put this one there since they love going bigger. Team Taz had a good story, too, where now Starks is going past being chippy with Cage to being overly helpful. This has to implode at some point, and they fight for the FTW Championship on at least Dynamite.

I do like that Britt had another match tonight, because she is determined to get wins to play by the AEW rules. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had another double header next week between Elevation and Dark to try and stuff the win-loss record and rankings. Double or Nothing 2021 is still six weeks away, so if AEW had the contenders all fight each other at some point in not a tournament but more a best-of series, that’d be really good to have Britt try and jump over Big Swole and Tay Conti to go after Shida. Also, AEW really just let Swole’s promo of being determined to get her shot drop like a lead balloon. Swole needs to get hungry again and get in all the other contenders’ faces as she takes over the contender race.

The Dark Order tying in the State Farm deal and the superfan Zoom call they apparently had was really nice. They’re definitely Faces doing things like that, and of course Reynolds uses the moves (and their names) suggested by the superfan. WWE gets product tie-ins and sponsorship deals, so AEW can have them, too! Either way, I think Reynolds was going to win because The Dark Order has been on fire. One of these days, one of their tag combinations is going to get at the tag titles, and that is going to be a lot of fun.

My Score: 8.2/10
