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

AEW honors and remembers Jay Briscoe.

Jay Briscoe himself once said, “Pro-wrestling’s in our soul. This is what we were created to do, man.” ROH is how he feeds his family, it is part of his life. And his family had his back. Jay & Mark are ROH legends, but even more than all the titles they held, Jay held family above all else. There isn’t a person in ROH or AEW who doesn’t respect, love and miss Jay Briscoe. #ThankYouJay.

 

AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Buddy Matthews w/ Julia Hart!

The Relentless One continues to be a fighting champion, and he wants to settle things with the House of Black. Darby beat Malakai, he beat Brody, but will he pull off the sweep in taking on the Aussie Juggernaut? Or will this title be the first gold for the House of Black?

AEW is picture in picture as Buddy finishes his entrance, but returns to single picture for Darby’s. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see just how relentless Darby truly is!

The fans rally up for Darby at the bell. Buddy takes off his mask to reveal he has skull face paint to copy Darby. They circle, but then Julia gets on the apron.

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

And with that, Darby checks off the last member of the House of Black! Tony Schiavone is with the Relentless One in the ring, and he says it is quite the run Darby is on. He is on a great win streak, including the Trios win alongside The Great Muta in Muta’s last Pro-Wrestling NOAH match. And all the consecutive title defenses, from Mike Bennett to Juice Robinson to Kushida, and now Buddy Matthews. Four in a row, all stemming from Darby’s amazing in against Samoa Joe in Seattle. But speaking of Joe, he’s on the tron! “Darby~! Little dead boy, little dead boy, what ever have you done?

“It was said that in the kingdoms of old, crimes of theft were punished by having your hand cut off.” But Joe tells Darby that in the Kingdom of the Joe, the One True King of Television, he will take everything from Darby. Darby’s gold, what he STOLE from Joe, feels comfortable and right. But know this: Joe is coming to take back what’s his. The King will not be usurped by a man like Darby! And Darby will learn that winning that TNT title was the greatest mistake of his career. “The King has spoken.” The ROH World Television Champion wants what Darby has, but when and where will they face off again?

 

Adam Cole speaks.

“The past six months, my entire recovery process, it was very much one step forward and two steps back. But today, today is a giant step forward. No one has any idea how much I missed being here. Seeing the crew, hearing the roar of the fans, just being in this ring for the first time in a very, very long time, it feels good. And it’s showing me that all this hard work, all this determination, it is paying off. I know I’m not exactly where I’d like to be yet, but every single day, I am working towards getting back and becoming a brand new Adam Cole.

“Tonight, I’m going to be able to rest easy, knowing that I got the chance to step into this AEW ring. Tonight, I’m gonna sleep easy knowing that there’s a roster full of some of the best pro-wresters on the planet that I’m gonna have the chance to tangle with. I don’t know exactly when that day is yet, but I promise you, that day is coming soon.” Adam Cole looks to the AEW Revolution sign in the arena. Can Cole make March 5th undisputed?

 

Is that Jeff Hardy’s music?!

It is! But wait, Matt Hardy and Ethan Page walk out. Ethan has them cut the music. He and Stokely Hathaway are upset that they played the wrong music. But don’t boo, Ethan and Matt are gonna look great! Ethan even gave Hardy back the Twist of Fate! But we all agreed as a team, Ethan is the star of the show! Right, Isiah? Stokely adds, “Ain’t that right, Isiah?” Isiah Kassidy says, “Hell nah!” What did he say!? “I said… Hell. Nah!” Stokely unbuttons Kassidy’s jacket to reveal the Ethan Page shirt. Why’s he wearing that, then? Stokely tells Kassidy to put the chain on him. Oh, wait, he’ll put it in a way Kassidy can understand: “Put my chain on, dead ass.”

Ethan says while that’s happening, play the RIGHT music! Ethan’s theme plays, All Ego and Hardy head to the ring. Will The Firm DELETE Jack Perry & the FTW Champion? Or will they regret wanting them to #SendJungleHook?

Hardy bumps JB off buckles, tags in Ethan, and they mug JB. Ethan wrenches, RAMS shoulders, then clamps onto JB’s arm with a double wristlock. JB endures and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally but Ethan wrenches JB again. Tag to Hardy and Hardy goes up, for the AX HANDLE to the arm!

Ethan wants to try that! Hardy drags JB over, tags Ethan in, and Ethan goes up. Ethan plays it up then jumps, but JB kicks Ethan down! JB rolls over Ethan’s back to whip Hardy out of the ring! JB then slips under Ethan to hot tag Hook! Ethan realizes he’s in danger, and he turns around into a LARIAT! Hook waistlocks, gut wrenches, EL CAMINO! Hardy gets up but Hook BLASTS him off the apron! Hook goes back to Ethan to waistlock but Ethan elbows free. Ethan swings, but into the T-BONE! Fans fire up, Hook tags JB in. Hook and JB double whip, but Ethan holds ropes. Hook runs in but is sent to the apron!

JB runs in but Ethan BOOTS him! Hook grabs Ethan at the ropes, but Hardy YANKS Hook down! Hardy RAMS Hook into apron, Ethan storms up on JB, but JB cradles Ethan! TWO!! Ethan clinches but JB JAWBREAKERS! Ethan staggers, Hardy tags in, and Hardy runs, but JB ducks ‘n’ dodges! Springboard, into the SIDE EFFECT! Hardy says, “DELETE! DELETE!” and JB stands up. TWIST- WAIT, Ethan wants the tag?! Fans boo, Hardy has this on his own! But Hardy does as he’s told and tags Ethan! Ethan grins as he drags JB back up. Ethan goes for the Twist, but gets tripped up! JB has the SNARE TRAP!!

Ethan endures, Stokely freaks out, and Hardy reaches out! Ethan crawls, but Hook trips Hardy in return! Ethan taps, JUNGLE HOOK WINS!

Winners: #JungleHook, by submission

All Ego just lost because of that ego! These cold-hearted, handsome devils are undefeated at 2-0, will they think of making this a regular thing?

 

Billy Gunn, The Acclaimed & The Gunn Sons are in family therapy.

The AEW therapist asks who would like to start, and Billy says he should, as he called for this. He will address the biggest issue: When did Austin & Colten “become so entitled, and just spoiled brats?” Austin says, “I’m sorry if I forget. When did you have anything to do with how we were raised? Our entire childhood, you were on the road 320 days out of the year.” Colten says that the “dream of having the tag titles with them (The Acclaimed) was supposed to be with us, and you (Billy) ditched us.” Billy’s sons always come second to him, so when are they going to be first? Never, it seems.

Anthony Bowens speaks up. “I think you two are the biggest pieces of sh*t I have ever met in my entire life. And I mean that.” But Austin & Colten do have the opportunity to mend that. They had all the time in the world to make up for that time they missed with their dad, and the second Billy showed The Acclaimed even a little bit of attention, they couldn’t control their jealousy and put hands on him. That’s where The Acclaimed stepped in. That’s why Billy adopted The Acclaimed. Max Caster agrees, and that is why he has no sympathy for Austin & Colten. “You think you can be The Acclaimed, you want to be the champions, but you can’t do what we do.”

Gunn Club, Billy, Austin & Colten all together, they would’ve been fine, but they wouldn’t have been what this is now. They wouldn’t have the top merchandise. That’s funny coming from Caster. Who helped Caster when Bowens was in a wheelchair? The Gunns. And yet in Caster’s raps, he had the nerve to call them “Ass Boys.” They were all supposed to be friends. And then when Bowens finally got out of the wheelchair, he hits Austin in the head with a crutch! And yet, Austin & Colten are the bad guys? That’s somehow their fault? Bowens says not to rewrite history, but they start arguing. Billy and the therapist calm this all down.

Billy gets both points, he really does. But Austin & Colten took the easy way out! What happened to them? Colten says their faults as sons are Billy’s failures as a father. Billy takes a breath. This has to get resolved, this is getting to be too much, and Billy can’t handle it. What is it the Gunns want? What would make them happy? The AEW World Tag Team Championships. Austin & Colten leave, and reconciliation seems impossible. Is fighting the only thing left that can end this?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page.

Renee Paquette again interviews The Cowboy, and says that after talking last week, something stuck with her. She asked Hangman what was next for him, and he gave a rather vague response. She wants to know if he’ll be more specific this week about what he wants to accomplish. Hangman says that sometimes, Renee asks questions “that we really don’t want to answer.” And without getting too into his personal life and keeping it to wrestling, the more Hangman looks forward, he can’t help but see back. Back to Ohio, where this all started with him and Jon Moxley. And Hangman sees now that he and Moxley are 1-1.

And Hangman knows now that next week, AEW will be in Dayton, Ohio. So the next thing Hangman would like to try and do would be the impossible: knockout Jon Moxley in Ohio. But then Wheeler Yuta walks in to tell Hangman that he has one thing right: it IS impossible for Hangman to knockout Moxley in Ohio. But while Moxley isn’t cleared to compete tonight, Moxley will be ready for next week, and he accepts the challenge. Well, good. But speaking of challenges, Hangman sure is running his mouth a lot about a guy who isn’t cleared, so how about he face YUTA on Rampage?

Hangman says sure, but he has a question for Yuta: “Why do you think what happened to Jon isn’t gonna happen to you, too?” Hangman tells the Decoder he’ll see him Friday, will the Cowboy make an example out of him before going for the tiebreaker with Moxley?

 

Bryan Danielson VS Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana!

The race to becoming #1 contender continues for the American Dragon! He just has to win all the way through February 8th in two weeks, but he’s running into The Machine! MJF gave Cage a fat stack of cash as reason to break Danielson, will he come through for the AEW World Champion?

The bell rings and fans rally behind Danielson. Bryan stares down with Brian, they circle, and then tie up. Cage shoves Bryan away and Bryan goes to a corner. Cage flexes and grins but Bryan comes back. They circle, feel things out, and knuckle lock. They go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength, but of course Cage has the advantage there. Bryan fights back up, rolls, breaks one knuckle lock and drop toeholds. Cage stays up, so Bryan grabs the leg to KICK it! Cage hobbles to a corner, but he snarls as he resets with Bryan. They tie up, Cage powers Bryan to a corner, and he RAMS a shoulder in! And again, and again!

Fans boo while Cage shouts, “Who betta than Cage?!” Cage goes corner to corner to UPPERCUT, GAMANGIRI, and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bryan flounders away, clutching an arm.

Bryan goes to the apron, Cage goes out and drags him up. Nana talks trash as Cage hits an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Fans boo, the ref checks Bryan, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Bryan endures, so Cage wrenches to an ARMBAR DDT! Cover, TWO! Bryan is still in this but Cage says he’s gonna break that arm! Cage swaggers around while talking trash, and he clamps on another double wristlock! Bryan endures as Cage cranks the hold! Bryan fights up and reaches out for ropes, but then Cage drags him up to add a BEARHUG to the mix! Dynamite returns to single picture as fans rally and Bryan endures!

Bryan throws headbutt after headbutt after headbutt and fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Cage lets go, Bryan KICKS his leg! And KICKS him in the chest! KICK after KICK and Bryan backs Cage down! Bryan goes to whip but Cage blocks! Bryan’s bad arm lets go, and Cage CLOBBERS Bryan in the corner! Cage whips Bryan corner to corner, but Bryan goes up and over- NO, Cage catches Bryan! SHOULDER BREAKER! Cage soaks up the heat and he goes to the ropes. Cage drags Bryan up as Nana says it’s time to go to sleep! DEADLIFT SUPERPLEX!

Bryan is back on the apron, Cage drags him back up. Cage waistlocks for a DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Nana is furious but the ref defends his count. Bryan is still in this and fans rally up, but Cage puts Bryan up in the corner. Cage tucks him in, CHEEKY NANDOS!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall

The undefeated streak in 2023 continues! Bryan is 5-0 with just two more matches to go! But Cage CLOBBERS Bryan! Fans boo but Cage stomps away on Bryan! Cage drags Bryan up to the Gory Especial, for WEAPON X!! Fans boo but here comes MJF! The AEW World Champion goes right to ringside, he stops the timekeeper from ringing the bell, and he puts his belt down on the table. MJF shoves the tech out of the way to grab that guy’s chair! MJF has Cage drag Bryan up, and Cage throws Bryan to the floor! MJF hands the chair over to Cage and Cage sits it up. Cage puts Bryan’s arm through the chair!

Cage aims for the corner, and he POSTS Bryan’s arm!! Bryan’s arm gets smashed in the vice! Cage then puts Bryan back in the ring for MJF. Fans are torn as MJF circles around Bryan. MJF stands on Bryan’s bad arm and digs his boot in! Then MJF rains down fists on Bryan! Fans boo more, but MJF just roars! Cage returns with the chair, and he puts that chair around Bryan’s bad arm again! MJF goes up the corner while Cage holds Bryan down. But KONOSUKE TAKESHITA runs out! The Future promised to have Bryan’s back, so here he is! MJF runs away like the coward he is, but Cage brawls with Konosuke!

Cage ROCKS Konosuke, but Konosuke ROCKS Cage! Cage mule kicks, front kicks, but Konosuke dodges to JUMP KNEE!! Cage bails out and Nana has him retreat. Nana says Konosuke is a “stupid kid” and he’ll get what he deserves, but what about Bryan? Did MJF’s mercenary do enough damage to get the job done? Or can Bryan still make it through and be the #1 contender?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Renee is with Bryan in the trainer’s room to get a medical update. Doc Sampson says Bryan’s got a partially subluxation to the shoulder joint, AKA it’s not good. So what does that mean for the immediate future? In Sampson’s opinion- Bryan says he doesn’t care what Sampson thinks! Can he wrestle or not? Sampson hesitates, so Bryan shouts, “CAN I WRESTLE OR CAN I NOT WRESTLE!?” Sampson says at this point, no! But Bryan says, “Yes I can!” Sampson says it’s a partial sub-whatever, Bryan doesn’t care if it’s dislocated! Bryan wrestled SIXTY GADDAMN MINUTES with a separated shoulder!! “Ain’t nobody stopping me from wrestling!”

Bryan tells “Max” that while he claims there’s some monster, Bryan just sees fear! MJF is afraid of getting hurt, of being exposed, and that Bryan will take the one thing MJF cares most about in this world in the AEW World Championship! But when Bryan does, he won’t just expose MJF. Bryan will show that what’s really behind MJF’s mask is a fraud. And then, the person who will be and should be AEW World Champion is Bryan Danielson! Bryan tells Sampson that he’s not stopping Bryan from wrestling ever again. Bryan heads out, but is this a move that plays right into MJF’s hands?

 

Toni Storm VS Ruby Soho!

As they say, “Card subject to change.” What was meant to be a Triple Threat cannot be as Britt Baker is out with injury. But that’s more than okay with these two! They don’t like Britt, and after Storm turned on Willow Nightingale, Soho doesn’t like Storm, either! Will there be #NoFuture for #ToniTime? Or will Destination Unknown be struck by the Lightning From Down Under?

The bell rings and fans rally as Storm and Soho circle. They tie up, go around, go along the ropes, and in a corner. The roundabout ends with Soho in control, but Storm shoves her away. Soho storms back up but Storm bails out. Storm lets things cool off and then steps back into the ring. They circle, Soho rushes in but Storm throws her down by her hair! Soho gets right up to shove Storm but Storm shoves her back. Soho throws a forearm but Storm gives it back! Fans fire up as the shots go back and forth, and Soho gets the edge! But Storm stomps Soho’s foot, runs the ropes, and BOOTS Soho down!

Fans duel as Storm scowls and stalks Soho to a corner. Storm digs her boots in, lets off, then drags Soho up. TORNADO- NO, Soho powers out, then spins Storm around to ROCK, CHOP and repeat! Soho has Storm in the corner for even more! The ref counts, Soho reels back, but Storm puts up her guard! Soho waits, Storm lowers her guard, and Soho ROCKS her! Soho drags Storm out to whip but Storm reverses. Soho goes up to catch Storm, but Storm throws her to the apron! Storm swings but Soho counter punches! Soho steps up but Storm pie faces her down! Storm runs to HIP ATTACK Soho to the floor!

Fans boo but Storm just grins. Storm goes to the apron and mockingly asks what happened. Storm then stand Soho up to CHOP! Fans rally for Soho but Storm whips her into railing! And then into the apron! Storm POSTS Soho and Soho falls, but Storm drags her back up. Storm whips Soho into railing hard! Soho writhes while Storm goes into the ring to soak up the heat. Storm again acts like she doesn’t know what’s wrong, while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Soho crawls her way over to the ring but Storm wants the count. The count begins, but Soho drags her way over. Storm paces around, Soho gets in at 5 of 10, but Storm stands on her! The ref counts, Storm steps off quickly, and then she drags Soho up. Storm CHOPS again, but Soho eggs her on! Storm CHOPS again, and again, and then ROCKS Soho with a forearm! Soho goes to a corner, Storm stands her up to UPPERCUT! Storm TOSSES Soho across the way, then storms up, only for Ruby to kick her low. Storm stomps a mudhole into Soho! Storm scowls as she lets off, and then she digs her knee in!

The ref counts, Storm lets off at 4, and Soho sputters to the ropes. Storm CHOKES Soho on the ropes with both knees! The ref counts, Storm lets off, and then she drags Soho up. Snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Storm shakes her head, not understanding why Soho’s fighting so hard. Storm kicks her around, stands on Soho’s fingers, and then CLUBS Soho down. Storm clamps onto Soho with a seated full nelson! Soho endures and fans rally up. Soho fights to her feet, but Storm thrashes her back down! Storm leans on the hold but Soho still endures. Soho fights back to her feet and Dynamite returns to single picture.

Fans rally for Soho and she runs to RAM Storm into buckles! Soho elbows Storm, goes up and hits DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Storm staggers, Soho reels her in, SAIDO! Soho drags Storm up, to SAIDO again! Storm stagger sup, into palm strikes and a SOBAT! Front KICK, STO! Fans fire up with Soho as she has a wild look in her eyes! Soho spins Storm around, reels her in, and clinches, but Storm rolls Soho up with tights! TWO!! Storm knees low, reels Soho in, but Soho wrenches out to NO FUTURE KICK! Storm goes down, Soho covers, TWO!! Storm survives and Soho is frustrated. But Soho drags Storm into a drop zone!

Soho climbs the corner as fans fire up. Soho aims, and SUPER- NO, she has to bail out of the senton as Storm moves! Soho blocks a kick to KNEE Storm back! Storm clutches her nose and goes to ropes! The ref has Soho stay back as Storm holds her nose. It was broken once before, did it get broken again? Fans boo, they don’t trust this. Soho isn’t sure what to do, she didn’t want to hurt Storm. But then Storm YANKS Soho into ropes! It WAS a fake-out! And then Storm GERMAN SUPLEXES Soho! Fans boo more as Storm smiles and breathes just fine. Storm then runs corner to corner, SWEET HIP MUSIC!! And then TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!!

Soho survives and fans fire up while Storm loses her mind! Storm drags Soho up and reels her in, but BRITT BAKER is here?!? Injured or not, The Doctor is still gonna show up on AEW! Storm snarls at the DMD, but turns around into DESTINATION UNKNOWN! Cover, Soho wins!!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall

Again, injured or not, Britt had an effect on this match! The homegrown star tipped the scales in Soho’s favor, have the battle lines been drawn?

 

MJF speaks.

“My apologies that I’m speaking to you people in a dimly lit locker room, but unfortunately, some people, ah, they just can’t seem to control their emotions around here. Granted, I’m not the first Jew that had to hide from a man with blue eyes, now am I? Takeshita! Yeah, that’s right, big man, I know how to pronounce your name. Granted, I still think ‘Take-a-shit-a’ is freakin’ hilarious. But hey, I can’t force the fans to have taste. But I have taste, Takeshita. I think you’re really talented, man. Inside that squared circle, you are very, very talented. But unfortunately, up top, you’re a little bit smooth-brain. You think it’s a good idea to dance with the devil, and I am here to tell you, you can’t match my tempo. So stay out of my business, or there will be consequences.

“Speaking of, Bryan Danielson! The American Dragon! How’s that wing of yours doing, bud? Bet it’s hanging on by a thread. But no, you’re gonna keep on going, right? You’re gonna keep on marching towards March 5th, AEW Revolution, that One Hour Ironman Match. Because you’re so brave, you’re a valiant warrior, you’re a hero! At least, that’s what the fans think of you, but I know better. See, I know you’re obsessed. Just like I’m obsessed with Triple B, the AEW World Championship. See, this belt gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Because this belt stands for the simple fact that all my blood, sweat, hard work, tears, and my sins, they were all worth it.

“This belt turns my catchphrase into a fact! This belt does make me better than you, and you know it. This belt is the only thing in my life that makes me feel whole. And you wanna take that away from me, Bryan? Why? Don’t you have enough, man? Loving family, adoring fanbase, first ballot Hall of Fame career, but no. You need to take away from Max! I know the real reason why, Bryan. It’s because just like me, you’ve got a hole in your soul and you’re trying to fill it. But I’m not the one to get that job done, Bryan. Nah, not by a long shot. Bad things happen to people that mess with MJF in this company.

“Matter of fact, I remember knocking out some big British guy. Kinda looked like Ellen DeGeneres on meth. The name’s on the tip of my tongue. Ah, it’s not important. What is important is this: Tonight was just the tip of the iceberg, and if you keep trying to take away the one thing in this world that brings me happiness, you’re gonna find out that tonight was only physical pain, and physical pain is fleeting. You don’t want me to get to the mental pain, Bryan. Because that really leaves a scar.

“Now this week, Tony Khan has issued out an open contract to any man to fight you on next week’s Dynamite. So I made a phone call to a man who loves inflicting pain. A man who gets off on scientifically dismantling men limb from limb. It’s been a fun ride, Dragon. But I’m afraid it’s over. Roll the clip.” MJF’s next mercenary: TIMOTHY THATCHER!! He just won in brutal fashion in Pro-Wrestling Noah, and he really does enjoy hurting his opponents! Will Thatcher do the dirty work of MJF and tear that subluxated arm clean off?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

On top of Hangman VS Yuta, and on top of “Powerhouse” Hobbs being back in action, we will see an AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator match! Jamie Hayter takes on THE Emi Sakura!

Jamie Hayter speaks.

“In my opinion, Emi Sakura is a professional wrestling legend. The amount of times she’s broken her back for this business, bled for this business. She got her bloody head shaved for this business! She’s the kind of woman I need to be in the ring with, and I need to beat her.” Hayter knows it’s been awhile since she and Emi met in the ring, but she’s different now. And when they face off on Rampage, even the legend will understand #HayterHitsHard.

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite next week!

On top of Hangman VS Moxley, Round 3, and on top of The Acclaimed in action, we get Darby VS Joe for the AEW TNT Championship, NO HOLDS BARRED!! What won’t these two do to finally settle things?

 

Mark Briscoe VS Jay Lethal!

To honor the memory of the late, great Jay Briscoe, his brother and tag partner, as well a his long time friend and rival, will close out tonight. Ian Riccaboni and Caprice Coleman join Excalibur on commentary for this one, because this one is for family!

AEW returns from break and Mar makes his entrance, holding onto the ROH World Tag Team Championships. Bobby Cruise makes the introductions as the emotions already well up inside Lethal and Mark. The bell rings, Lethal and Mark shake hands not just to uphold the Code of Honor, but to share in genuine emotion. The fans fire up as the two circle and tie up. Mark headlocks for a takeover, Lethal headscissors, but Mark kips free. They reset and tie up again. Mark wrenches to a wristlock, then gets a top wristlock. Lethal powers out, Mark ducks ‘n’ dodges and slides, to arm-drag Lethal down!

Fans fire up but Lethal fights up to whip Mark. Mark reverses but Lethal goes up the corner and leaps. Mark gets under that, Lethal slides under but runs into a scoop and SLAM! Mark goes for legs but Lethal kangaroo kicks him away. Lethal arm-drags now, and the two stand off. Fans applaud as the two take a moment to catch their breath and wipe their eyes. Fans rally up, Mark and Lethal tie up again. They go around, Mark puts Lethal in the ring, but Lethal turns it around. The ref counts, Lethal CHOPS! Mark stares Lethal down and says, “It’s like that?” Lethal says, “Yeah, it’s like that.” So Mark turns Lethal around to CHOP back!

Lethal nods and smiles. Mark eggs Lethal on so Lethal CHOPS! Mark CHOPS! Lethal CHOPS! Mark CHOPS! They CHOP and CHOP and Mark gets the edge! Mark fires up but Lethal CHOPS and CHOPS! Lethal whips, Mark reverses and runs in to clothesline! Mark snapmares, runs and basement BOOTS! Fans fire up and Mark brings Lethal up. Mark UPPERCUTS, then whips. Lethal reverses and hip tosses! Cartwheel and basement dropkick! Fans rally as Lethal stalks Mark to ropes. Lethal brings Mark up, suplexes, but Mark slips free to waistlock. Lethal elbows free, runs, but Mark follows to forearm!

Mark reels Lethal in, fans fire up, and Mark turns Lethal for a very Jay Briscoe style NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up for the shoutout and Mark covers, TWO! Mark dares Lethal to get up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Lethal goes to the apron, Mark waits on him to get up and then storms over. Lethal clings to ropes, the ref counts, and Mark lets off. Mark goes out after Lethal to bring him up but Lethal fights the clinch. Lethal ROCKS Mark with a forearm, but Mark ROCKS Lethal back! Mark eggs Lethal on so Lethal ROCKS Mark back! Fans fire up as Mark ROCKS Lethal! Lethal ROCKS Mark, Mark shouts and ROCKS Lethal! And kicks low! And CHOPS! And then LARIATS Lethal back into the ring, only for Lethal to DROPKICK Mark off the apron! Lethal builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Mark hits railing!

Lethal paces around the way, rolls into the ring just to refresh the count, and then he goes back for Mark. Lethal brings Mark up to put him in the ring, covers, ONE! Lethal pushes Mark down again, ONE! Lethal clamps on a chinlock to grind Mark down. Mark endures, fights up, and throws body shots. Lethal snapmares and basement dropkicks Mark down! Lethal covers, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Lethal goes back to the chinlock and grinds Mark down again. Mark fights up, throws body shots and elbows, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Mark ROCKS Lethal, CHOPS him, then fires off fast hands! REDNECK KUNG FU!

Mark whips Lethal corner to corner but Lethal reverses. Mark goes up and out, ROCKS Lethal, then UPPERCUTS! The Redneck Kung Fu is hard to beat! Mark goes up top, leaps, FLYING CHOP! Fans are thunderous for Mark but Lethal waistlocks! Mark elbows free then PELES! Lethal goes to a corner, Mark runs in, and he SPLASHES! Mark puts Lethal up top, power sup, and UPPERCUTS again! Mark then crosses Lethal’s arms, for an ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO!! Lethal survives but Mark pounds the mat. Fans rally up behind him, Mark drags Lethal up and tucks the arms!

Lethal drags Mark up and to the ring but fans rally. Mark karate chops Lethal again and again! But Lethal RAMS him into railing! Mark flops to the timekeeper’s table, Lethal CLUBS him down. Lethal lines up a shot, and he puts Mark on the table. Lethal goes to the corner and climbs up!? Fans are already freaking out, but Mark gets in the ring! Lethal hops down but Mark DECKS him! Mark builds speed to WRECK Lethal with a dropkick! Fans fire up with Mark as he is on the apron., and he RUNNING BLOCKBUSTERS to the floor! Fans are thunderous as Mark ROCKS Lethal and puts him on the table!

Mark goes to the corner and he climbs up top! Fans are thunderous for the SUPER FROGGY-BOW through the table!!! Fans lose their minds and give a standing ovation for that one! Mark throws things aside, including a chair, and the ref has to get that chair out of the ring. Mark puts Lethal in the ring, “This is Awesome!” as Mark covers, TWO!?!? Lethal is still in this and Mark can’t believe it! Mark drags Lethal up, underhooks, but Lethal NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Mark still has the arms hooked! But Lethal escapes by slipping out underneath! Lethal handsprings, but Mark follows! LARIAT!!

Mark drags Lethal up, he underhooks the arms, but Lethal wrenches out, into another LARIAT! Mark finally has the underhooks, JAY DRILLER!!! Cover, Mark wins!!

Winner: Mark Briscoe, by pinfall

The standing ovation is back, Mark wins this one for his brother! On what would’ve been Jay’s 39th birthday, we all celebrate the life, career, passion, dedication and love of Jay Briscoe. The combined AEW and ROH roster is on stage to join the standing ovation as Lethal and Mark hug it out. Lethal then goes up the ramp, he hugs it out with Sonjay Dutt, and Mark celebrates with the fans. Mark then hugs it out with Christopher Daniels, Tony Khan, and even Rush and BJ Whitmer. #ThankYouJayBriscoe, we will always remember you.


My Thoughts:

A great episode, but made even better by Warner Brothers Discovery letting off on their anti-Briscoe stance in the wake of Jay’s passing. Mark VS Lethal was such a great match, especially in terms of honoring Jay. There will still be a bigger, more ROH based tribute show via Honor Club, but I almost feel like nothing else could top what we got. We also got a good promo from Adam Cole to further hype his return, and I think Revolution is a good target to aim for. Another month is a good amount of time to prepare, but he’d have to find an opponent to face pretty quickly to make sure they can put it on the card and advertise it.

Great opening tag match, and of course the JAS cheat to get the win. The feud between them and Starks-Andretti is far from over, but I think there has to be one last 1v1 of Starks VS Jericho to really settle it. Great TNT title match from Darby VS Buddy, with great overbooking of Sting and Ortiz getting after Malakai and Brody. This very well could be how Ortiz proves to Eddie Kingston that he was never in cahoots with The House of Black, but maybe Eddie just thinks this was a fake-out. Pretty funny swerve with the theme music for Ethan & Hardy VS Jungle Hook. Great match, too, and good booking of the finish. Jungle Hook really could become a full-time team, fans love them both anyway.

And then Darby VS Joe being set up next week, TNT title under No Holds Barred, holy crap that’s going to be awesome. They’re going to go above and beyond, and that could mean either guy wins. But at the same time, it’d be a shame for Darby only holding onto the title for a month just to give Joe another double title run. Darby will surely win, and I would love if Hobbs showed up after to attack and stake his claim to the title. Darby VS Hobbs could be awesome stuff, and probably set for Revolution to really add to that PPV.

Good “therapy” promo from Acclaimed and Gunn Club. I’m with Daddy Ass, those were good points from both sides, and of course this is about the tag titles. Acclaimed will surely win their tag match next week, only for Gunns to attack them like they did with FTR to get at them. Acclaimed VS Gunns could happen at Revolution, but they’d really have to stretch this out somehow. Good promo from Hangman and I’m surprised we’re getting Hangman VS Moxley Round 3 so soon. And still not Unsanctioned No Holds Barred like I expected. Hangman VS Yuta will be a great match for Rampage, and I would think Hangman will win that.

Great stuff from Bryan VS Brian, and of course we get both Bryan winning but his arm being viciously attacked. Konosuke making the save was great, though he could’ve gotten out there a bit sooner. Good promo from MJF to call both Konosuke and Bryan out, and I would love to see Konosuke VS Cage at some point. Bryan had a great promo to tell off Doc Sampson and MJF, and Bryan will definitely find a way to win his next two matches. Bryan winning with one arm, then wrestling against MJF for an hour with one arm, that’s gonna be some powerful stuff. But somehow, someway, MJF is surely winning at Revolution.

Good promo from Hayter to call out Emi Sakura, and that will be a real good match for Rampage. And great stuff from Soho VS Storm in place of the Triple Threat we were supposed to get. Britt Baker’s injury is being kept under wraps, but it clearly wasn’t too serious since she was able to show up and distract Storm. Tony Khan has been quoted as saying the Triple Threat will happen when Britt is 100%, and maybe it’ll name a #1 contender to Hayter’s title for Revolution. At the same time, Shida has to get in on this story after finding herself stuck between Saraya & Storm with their “We’re better cuz we got started before AEW” and the fact AEW got her international success.

My Score: 8.9/10

A good line-up, and good to see Matt Sydal back in action. That should be a good return win for him against big bad Bononi. Harley Cameron is a bit of a surprise. Sure, she showed up in AEW sometime last year, but she performed in a musical trio alongside Scarlett Bordeaux and Shotzi Blackheart to cover I Put A Spell On You for WWE around Halloween time. WWE could’ve/should’ve scooped her up then but hey, at least she’s somewhere. Anthony Henry VS Mascara Dorada looks to be a great match-up that could go either way. And of course, Britt will get a win here to be ready for Dynamite on Wednesday.
