Jurassic Express VS MJF & Wardlow!

To say Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus have had beef with Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his muscular sidekick is an understatement. This branches from the back and forth between MJF and Jungle Jack Perry as well as the two behemoths, which was all over AEW’s historic Lumberjack match last week. Will the score finally be settled in this grudge match?

Before the match, MJF grabs a mic to speak on the rivalries. Ow, he’s got a bad case of deja vu. He is sick and tired of beating JB over and over again! Wardlow beat Barney’s brains in and showed the “dino douche” was green, and we’re not talking just the color of his tongue. And then there’s Jungle Jabrony, who was part of history at Double or Nothing, one of the best in this company if we’re honest. And yet JB wants to keep going after him? Why didn’t he just go home and count his daddy’s money? Ouch. But the fact his match is happening hit him. This match isn’t happening because Jurassic Express wants after MJF and #WarDog, no. It’s happening because of a certain ratings war. But how do you expect to get a W without one man on the front line, and his name is Maxwell Jacob Friedman.

Jericho loves MJF’s intensity, but now Jurassic Express makes its entrance. Will the boy and his dinosaur shut up the mouth and his muscle once and for all?

The teams sort out, obviously JB starts against MJF, and the two fire off right at the bell! It’s fast and furious already, but MJF knees low and says up yours. He whips but JB LARIATS in return! JB joins MJF on the apron, clubs him on the back, then glares at Wardlow before hopping up. MJF blocks the Poison-Rana, remembering that from Double or Nothing! Wardlow BOOTS JB, drags him off the apron and POSTS him long dart style! The crowd is rowdy while Wardlow puts JB in for MJF. MJF swaggers about and taunts JB before stomping him down. MJF drags JB up to arm triangle suplex! And then show off with a kip up and strut. Luchasaurus dares him to fight, but Wardlow chokes JB in the distraction!

MJF tags Wardlow and then the two grind their boots in. The ref counts, MJF lets off but JB tries to hit back. Wardlow clubs JB down, scoops him up and taunts Luchasaurus before throwing JB with an EXPLODER! MJF talks trash and Wardlow feeds JB to the boot. Tag to MJF and MJF drags JB up. MJF whips JB but JB reverses and sends MJF into Wardlow’s boot! JB enziguris Wardlow, hurries but MJF drop toeholds and floats over to a facelock. MJF cranks JB down but the crowd rallies up. JB fights up but Wardlow comes around the way. The ref stops Wardlow from doing anything to Luchasaurus, and JB Northern Lights Suplexes MJF! Tag to Luchasaurus! But the ref didn’t see it and so the tag doesn’t count!

MJF puts JB in the corner, and he mugs JB with Wardlow! MJF soaks up the heat, drags JB up and drops him with a back suplex. Cover, TWO! Tag to Wardlow and Wardlow brings JB up for a big back suplex!

MJF staggers into a choke grip, but he breaks free, only to get booted back! Tag to Wardlow, Luchasaurus choke grips MJF but Wardlow gets in Luchasaurus’ face. The two start throwing haymakers! Back and forth, heavy and fast, but Wardlow runs only for Luchasaurus to follow. Luchasaurus hits a JUMPING calf kick! Luchasaurus reels Wardlow in but Wardlow suplex TOSSES him away! Wardlow drags Luchasaurus up but Luchasaurus fireman’s carries! EXTINCTION! But both men are down as the crowd fires up!

The two men crawl, hot tags to JB and MJF! JB dodges and clotheslines MJF out! JB builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit into the barriers but JB won’t stop! He DIVES again! JB wants it, and FLIES for the hat trick! The crowd is fired up as JB puts MJF in. Wardlow anchors his springboard and choke grips him, to CHOKE- No! JB lands on his feet and enziguris Wardlow back! Luchasaurus FLIES and wipes Wardlow out! Jericho is losing his mind as the fans cheer, “A E DUB!” JB gets in, tags Luchasaurus, and the two go after MJF. Scoop and toss for the CUTTER! Cover, but Wardlow breaks it in time! Wardlow drags Luchasaurus up, scoops but Luchasaurus slips out and shoves. Wardlow huricanranas?!

Luchasaurus flips him but MJF lands on his feet, to poke Luchasaurus in the eyes! MJF stomps a leg then boots, but Stunt gets up on the apron. The ref is busy with Stunt as Luchasaurus pops MJF for the SIT-OUT BOMB! But MJF is right up to mule kick! All four men are down and the crowd is loving this! A standing count begins, reaches 5, and BOTH JB and MJF kip up! But then so do Luchasaurus and Wardlow?! The big men clothesline each other out, JB uses them to step up and DESTROYER!!

Wardlow walks into the TAIL WHIP! JB springboards for the tornado DDT! Luchasaurus choke grips, for the CHOKE SLAM! Wardlow roars as he sits up, but he gets the Penalty Kick to standing moonsault! JB keeps MJF out, Luchasaurus covers, Jurassic Express wins!!

AEW takes a look at the Women’s Championship showdown.

The Samurai of Stardom becoming champion at Double or Nothing was a dream come true. She is the warrior queen. Penelope Ford says Hikaru Shida is good, but she’s not Superbad. Ford walks out and screams megastar. She’s not only beautiful, but because she does things no one else is willing to try. Shida has held four singles titles in Japan, so she knows the most difficult time is after you’ve won the championship. Ford pinned Riho, she pinned Shida, she has already beaten the best. JR knows this won’t actually be 1v1 with Kip Sabian nearby. Ford promises to beat the hell out of Shida, and look better in that belt, too. Shida promises to still be champion after Fyter Fest, but how hard will she have to fight to do it? We’ll find out right now!

The Warrior Queen still sits on her throne! It took a lot but Shida pulled it off! What will it take to pull that title off of her?

 

AEW presents Technique By Taz, on Jon Moxley!

We’ve gotten this before, but it is updated now that he’s beaten even more opponents with his toughness, experience and heart, as well as the Paradigm Shift, his patented butterfly underhook DDT. The key is how deep you can get those underhooks. But doing it on a super athlete like Brian Cage, with that “absurd thickness” of muscles, will be impossible. Taz promises Moxley has never ever dealt with a bloodthirsty monster like Cage.

Backstage interview with Kenny Omega & Hangman Page.

Dasha asks the Cleaner and the Cowboy how they’re feeling before their title defense in the main event. Hangman’s feeling great. He loves Best Friends, Trent and Chuck. People have been saying those two deserve a title shot, and Hangman agrees. But when they get that shot against Omega and Page, “the word ‘deserve’ dries up.” Omega says that week after week after week, they have defeated team after team this division has thrown at them. This week will be no different. The champions will still be the champions, bidding us all adieu and good night. Will that be the case against the Kentucky Gentleman and #JustTrent?

 

Big news for Fyter Fest Night 2!

After the amazing win Private Party scored tonight, they get to have a tag title match already! The winners of the title main event move on, who will be joining Quen and Kassidy in the ring?

But sadly, this is because the AEW World Championship match must be postponed. Do not worry, it won’t be for too long! Because in two weeks, Dynamite becomes Fight for the Fallen 2020!! Will Cage finally get to fight for the title and destroy the Maniac? But speaking of…

Taz and Brian Cage head to the ring!

The Suplex Machine leads THE Machine, and Taz has the mic to speak. “The cat’s out of the bag now, right?” Everyone knows what they found out earlier today. It won’t be next week but 7/15/20 that The Machine gets his opportunity at the AEW World Championship. Some might think, “Wow, Taz and Cage are probably pissed off about this.” No they’re not. They’re not upset Mox bought himself some time, maybe politic’d, whatever it was. Because they’re easy like Sunday morning.

And Taz wants to pull back the curtain again. He had a “nice, healthy conversation” with Tony Khan. It was interesting. Mr. Khan told Taz that Mox is “concerned’ for the health and well-being of the AEW staff. That’s weird to Taz. Correct him if he’s wrong but, Mox has been tested not once but twice and he’s been negative both times. If Mox decided to get his ass here next week, he’d be tested again because as we all know, AEW doesn’t run a sloppy shop. Taz says Mox has the case of one thing: the chicken sh*ts. Mox is afraid of Cage, and he should be. Cage will beat Mox’s brains in and take the title form his dumbass. So Fight for the Fallen, “Who better than Brian Cage to be AEW World Champion?” Nobody.

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Kenny Omega & Hangman Page VS Best Friends!

We heard from the champions, but the challengers roll up in style, courtesy of Mama Baretta! Will the longer established team finally become best champions? Or will the drinking buddies be celebrating big after tonight?

Hangman brings Trent up again, chokes him on the ropes, but lets up at the ref’s count. Hangman brings Trent up again, snapmares him down to a grounded cobra twist. Trent endures and fights up, then throws forearms and CHOPS! Hangman knees low, clubs Trent back, then has him in a corner. AEW returns to single picture as Hangman whips Trent corner to corner hard! Trent tumbles up the corner then back down, into Hangman’s clothesline! Omega wants to see that again, so Hangman whips Trent corner to corner. Chuckie saves Trent and Trent LARIATS Hangman down! Omega runs in but Trent gets him for a tornado DDT! Trent’s mom cheers as Trent hot tags Chuckie!

Chuckie dodges Hangman, throws him out, then FLIES onto the champions! The crowd is fired up with the Kentucky Gentleman as he clubs away on Hangman. Chuckie stomps Hangman into the barriers, but Omega BOOTS him back! Trent DIVES to hit Omega, then feeds him to Chuckie for the OVERHEAD suplex onto Hangman! The champions are wrecked and the ref checks on them both. Chuckie drags Hangman up as the crowd cheers for “A E DUB!” Chuck Falcon Arrows Hangman, covers, TWO! Chuckie keeps his cool as he tags in Trent. Best Friends bring Hangman up, but hangman denies Sole Food. Hangman clotheslines Chuck out, dodges Trent, and Fall Away Slams! To kip up and PESCADO onto Chuckie!

Hangman returns to Trent, runs, spins but Trent dodges, only to get a LARIAT! Omega tags in, climbs up and leaps, missile dropkick to the back! Omega hurries to bring Trent up, fisherman for FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Trent lives and Omega grows frustrated. Omega drags Trent up and around, fireman’s carries, “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” Rolling senton, to moonsault onto knees! Trent gets up, runs and PSYCHO KNEES Omega! Tag to Chuck, Chuck drags Omega up, SPIKE PILEDRIVER! Cover, but Hangman breaks it! Chuck brings Hangman up to throw him out, then he runs at Omega. Omega boots back, then elbows him. Chuck tries again, gets buckles but KNEES back! Omega ducks Chuck to SNAP DRAGON!

Tag to Trent, SNAP DRAGON! Chuck staggers into another SNAP DRAGON! The Best Friends are in the corner together, Hangman tags in. Hangman runs in to corner clothesline sandwich, Omega adds his back elbow. Chuck gets the roaring elbow, then pop-up GERMAN! The champs give Trent a pop-up BOMB, flip over, V-TRIGGER! Cover, TWO!! Trent lives but the champs coordinate. Trent flounders up in their cross hairs, but Chuck anchors Omega! Trent dodges Buck Shot, Alabama lift, Chuck goes up! STRONG ZERO!! Cover, but Omega breaks it!! Omega and Chuck brawl, V-TRIGGER, to Electric Chair, but Chuck slips out! AWFUL WAFFLE!!

Best Friends get up and hug! But then Chuck pushes Trent away and Hangman BOOTS Chuck down! Trent throws forearms and CHOPS on Hangman, but Hangman whips him for the DISCUS! And another! Trent flounders into Hangman’s lift, but he slips out of the bomb to Alabama lift! Hangman sunset flips, Trent sits down, TWO!! Hangman escapes and even FTR is loving this! Trent brings Hangman up and in, but Hangman Alabama lifts, DEADEYE! Cover, TWO!?! Trent still lives and the crowd rallies up. Hangman goes to the apron, takes off the elbow pad, slingshots, BUCKSHOT!! Cover, Hangman and Omega win!

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

The Best Friends gave Omega and Hangman the biggest fight of their reign yet! And to help them celebrate, FTR offers them a beer. Well, Omega doesn’t drink alcohol but Hangman does, so he accepts. Hangman chugs while Omega does raise the bottle to cheer FTR. Omega pours the beer out and that upsets FTR. Even Hangman’s upset about the waste! The Young Bucks hurry out to keep this from getting rough. FTR has to work with the Bucks on Night 2, will they be able to? As for Omega and Page, can they keep things going and beat Private Party?


My Thoughts:

An incredible night! This was definitely PPV worthy stuff to fit Fyter Fest from last year. Having Jericho on commentary for most of the night was amazing, for one. And I give AEW credit for finding a way to work-shoot the Moxley COVID situation. Two weeks was not going to be enough time for Mox to quarantine and still be ready for a match with Cage. AEW also manages to make July a three week streak of great events as Fight for the Fallen returns to still give us the world title match. We get a great tag opener and it almost felt like there could be dysfunction between MJF and Wardlow after how that match finished. Private Party and Proud ‘n’ Powerful had a great match that was a lot later in the card than I thought. And AEW made a great adjustment to give Private Party a title match now to fill for Night 2.

The only downside of AEW tonight was the status quo was kept, but at the same time, this wasn’t exactly the time for a big change. Ford isn’t quite there yet, but she and Shida had a great match. Cody and Hager also had a really good match, and I’m surprised there was no blood. With Archer and Janela getting into it tonight, their match next week better be brutal. And then the Murderhawk Monster should come back around to the TNT Championship to give us an even better match then what we got at Double or Nothing. The tag title match was spectacular, though I was a bit unsure about having FTR show up. It didn’t exactly foreshadow much, but it all makes sense with the beer celebration after. I just hope Hangman and Omega don’t break up because of wasted beer. That’s basically the bad parts of American wrestling writing that AEW should actually avoid. Omega & Page VS Private Party is still going to be awesome, but I would think Omega and Page win again to get into a rivalry with FTR.

My Score: 9.5/10

AEW Elevation Coverage

Spend the Fourth of July with Best Friends!

AEW brings some fireworks to Motor City with half a dozen matches for Dark: Elevation! Will you be celebrating with Best Friends for the Fourth?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Anna Jay w/ Negative One VS Megan Myers; Jay wins.
  • Best Friends VS Isaiah Broner & GPA; Best Friends wins.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS Ryan Jones & Cage Alexander; Lethal & Singh win.
  • Anthony Ogogo VS Project MONIX; Ogogo wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki & Hikaru Shida VS Laynie Luck & Heather Reckless; Sakazaki & Shida win.
  • Six Man Tag: The Dark Order (Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & 10) VS The Factory; The Dark Order wins.

QUICK NOTES

A fun line-up but with the usual obvious outcomes. Obviously with Chuck Taylor sticking around, he and Trent Beretta are back at it as Best Friends. They’ll get a good win here, but who knows if they’ll get back up towards tag titles or not. Good to see Shida is back, she and Sakazaki will also get a good win. While both the AEW Women’s World Championship and TBS Championship both have stories, this match could still help Shida get going again towards a title story of her own. And the Dark Order’s Uno, Reynolds & Vance will surely beat QT, Solo & Comoroto.

The Royal Rampage!

Twenty men are about to battle for the golden ticket to face Jon Moxley for his Interim AEW World Championship! The entrants will alternate between the two rings, “Red” and “Blue,” for two separate 10 Man Battle Royals! Once there is only one man in each ring, it will be Red VS Blue, with the winner getting their shot! Who goes on a rampage and takes on The Maniac?

Already waiting in the “red” ring on the left is “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, and in the “blue” ring on the right is The Premier Athlete, Tony Nese. Hangman Page makes his entrance to join Hobbs, and Darby Allin, with Sting by his side, heads for the blue ring. The bell rings and Darby SHOTGUNS Nese while Hobbs and Hangman start throwing hands! Darby rushes Nese at the corner with haymaker and fans fire up! Hobbs RAMS Hangman into a corner, RAMS into him again, and again. Darby throws his shirt at “Smart” Mark Sterling, then CLUBS Nese down. Darby drags Nese up while Hobbs stomps Hangman.

Nese stops Darby from throwing him over and then elbows Darby away. Darby staggers, Nese SOBATS Darby in the head! Fans boo but Nese soaks up the heat. The countdown is almost over as Hobbs rushes Hangman. Hangman holds the rope and dumps Hobbs out! Hobbs lands safe on the apron and dodges the Triangle Jump Lariat as Ricky Starks is next! Hobbs HEADBUTTS Hangman and Absolute reinforces him in the red ring! Hangman ROCKS Hobbs and gets in Starks’ face. The fists start flying and fans fire up! Hangman whips Starks to a corner to clothesline! But Hobbs BOOBS and Starks SPEARS Hangman back!

Nese keeps on Darby as we get a moment of split screen. Nese whips Darby but Darby springboards to COFFIN SPLASH! Darby runs but Sterling swipes at him! Fans boo but Darby sees Nese rushing in. Darby TOSSES Nese up and out and onto Sterling, Darby ELIMINATES Nese! Then Darby DIVES through the ropes to smash Nese into railing for good measure! The countdown is ending, though, and joining the blue ring is  THE BUTCHER! Bunny accompanies him to the ring and he hauls Darby up to SWING into the railing again and again! Butcher then drags Darby’s dead weight back to the ring.

Team Taz tries to throw Hangman out together but he fights them both off. Butcher stalks Darby, and we already have another man entering the red ring. It’s JOHN SILVER! The Dark Order’s Meat Man is here to help his old buddy, Hangman, and he RAMS Hobbs! Hobbs wobbles, Silver dodges Starks to ENZIGURI! Sliver gets around Hobbs, but Hobbs is too much to back suplex alone! So Hangman helps out Silver for a DOUBLE BACK SUPLEX! Silver and Hangman stare down, and they HUG! Fans love it, but then Hangman grabs Silver! Oh, it’s just a fake out to keep him on his toes. But then Silver- No, wait, another fake out!

Hangman stomps away on Starks in a corner. The countdown is done again, and entering the blue ring is Max Caster! “Platinum on the mic, with my legendary status. I’m about to do the new man that’s in the palace. Now tell me who can stop me? I’m about to beat you bitches down like you Rudy Giuliani! And none of y’all above me. I’ma win the title, then Tony Khan will hug me! Remember the name in Detroit. Everybody loves The Acclaimed.” Silver dances to the beat as Bowens says, “DETROIT, MICHIGAN~! The Acclaimed have arrived!” And it seems Billy Gunn is still part of their team.

Caster gets in finally, and Butcher is right on him! Caster and Butcher stop and come to an agreement to go after Darby, but he BOOTS each of them away! And after all that rapping, the time is already up! Entering the red ring, representing “La Faccion Ingobernable,” aka the OG Los Ingobernables, it’s RUSH! Caster tackles Darby while Rush gets in and DECKS Starks! And DECKS Hobbs! Butcher already ends his alliance with Caster to go after him in a corner! Rush DECKS Hangman, but Silver CHOPS Rush. Rush doesn’t even flinch! Caster CLUBS Butcher while Silver pulls up Rush’s shirt to CHOP skin. Still nothing!

Rush CHOPS Silver off his feet! Then Rush hits Silver with a deadlift BRAINBUSTER! Hangman whips Rush but Rush reverses, to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly the Cowboy! The countdown is done and entering the blue ring is The Blade! He reinforces Butcher against Caster and Darby while Rush suplexes Starks! Butcher sets Darby up for Blade’s KICK! Butcher then digs his knees into Caster while Blade does the same to Darby. Bunny mocks their pain, and the countdown is already done to add to the red ring. Hobbs saves Starks from Rush, and here comes Penta Oscuro! Rush goes out the bottom to go after Penta at the ramp!

Penta dodges Rush to SUPERKICK! Then SLINGBLADE to the ramp! Fans fire up as Penta KICKS Rush back to ringside, then puts him back in. “CERO MIEDO!” echoes out and that upsets Andrade. Penta goes up the corner and jumps, only for Rush to DROPKICK him out of the sky! Hobbs hauls Silver up, puts him on the apron, but Silver drags Hobbs onto the ropes! Starks hurries over to SPEAR Silver off and ELIMINATE him! Butcher and Blade mug Darby, and the countdown is done again. SWERVE heads to the blue ring! Darby isn’t his favorite person but Swerve saves him by going up and over Caster to COMPLETE SHOT Butcher!

Swerve BOOTS Caster, blocks Blade’s kick to slip around and hit a BACKBREAKER! Then a LARIAT! Fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Caster runs in but is put on the apron. Swerve sweeps the legs and Caster sits down, for the SUPERKICK! Caster falls to the floor, Swerve ELIMINATES Platinum Max! The countdown is done again, and entering the red ring is KEITH LEE! The Limitless One and Swerve won’t have to worry about getting in each other’s way, but what if they end up the last two left? For now, Keith gets in as Rush snapmares Hangman, Swerve smiles and conducts “OH~ BASK IN HIS GLO~RY!” for his teammate.

Swerve wants a fist bump to show they’re cool, but Team Taz attacks Keith before he can respond! Swerve feels bad he can’t help his friend, but then Butcher goes after him while Blade is after Darby! Swerve fights back while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Blade digs his boots into Darby, Team Taz mugs Keith and even rakes the eyes, and Rush CHOKES Hangman until Penta BOOTS him down. Penta then CLUBS Rush to the corner, only for Rush to turn things around. Rush stomps away on Penta’s face! But the countdown is done, and Matt Hardy is heading to the blue ring! “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” Hardy gets in to go after his former mercenaries with big forearms and elbows! Matt bumps Blade off buckles again and again, allowing Swerve to help Darby with Butcher. But Butcher DECKS Swerve, and rushes Hardy! Hardy dodges and Butcher gets buckles now!

Hardy bumps Butcher off buckles again and again and again, “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” Blade staggers up, Penta KICKS Rush down, and another countdown ends as Rampage returns to single picture. Entering the red ring is the Natural, Dustin Rhodes! We get some split screen as Hardy and Darby work together to go after Blade while Swerve keeps Butcher down. Dustin gets in to POWERSLAM Stars! Hobbs CLOBBERS Dustin so the rally ends already, but then Dustin gets up and kicks back. Penta tells everyone to listen. “CERO! MIEDO!” Rush just CHOPS Penta! Penta CHOPS back! Rush throws off his shirt to CHOP back!

Penta throws a forearm but Rush gives it back and fans fire up as the brawl heats up! Penta CLUBS Rush but Rush JUMP KNEES! Rush runs, into a SUPERKICK! Penta runs to RANA Rush up and out and both men are on the apron! Penta stands Rush up, they CHOP each other more and more! Rush shoves but Penta SUPERKICKS! Penta waistlocks Rush but Rush holds onto ropes to LOW BLOW MULE KICK! Seems that’s an Ingobernables signature! But Penta holds onto Rush and brings him along! They both hit the floor, DOUBLE ELIMINATION! Dustin DECKS Starks, Hobbs fights off Keith, and Andrade aims at Penta with a chair!

Penta gets up while Jose mugs Alex Abrahantes, and Penta turns around for Andrade to CHUCK the chair into his face! The countdown is over, and joining the blue ring is the Heavy Metal Rebel, Frankie Kazarian! Rush snatches Penta’s mask!! Insult to injury! Kaz sees Swerve storm up, and he avoids the punch and the shoulder to GUILLOTINE LEG DROP! Kaz gets in to go after Darby while Butcher and Blade mug Hardy. But Hardy fights free to SIDE EFFECT Blade! Hardy says “DELETE!” and he kicks Blade, to TWIST OF- NO, Blade pushes him away! Butcher tosses Hardy up and out! Hardy holds onto the ropes!

The Butcher & Blade go after Hardy with stomps! Hardy can’t hold on forever, and he falls! The mercenaries ELIMINATE Hardy! Bunny is there to laugh at her former boss while the countdown is zero again. Dante Martin heads for the red ring! Angel Dorado slips under Starks to KANGAROO KICK! Starks flounders, Dante kicks him out and Starks does his best to keep his feet up! Hobbs goes after Dante with a full nelson! Starks gets in, Team Taz mugs Dante, things still not settled between all of them. Darby and Swerve try to kick out the mercenaries! Kaz helps out, Hangman ROCKS Keith, and another countdown is ending.

Kaz whips Blade at Butcher but Blade reverses! Butcher holds ropes down but Kaz manages to stay in!

Kaz DECKS Butcher, but Blade clotheslines Kaz out to ELIMINATE him! Another countdown is ending, and the final entrant for the red ring is the House of Black’s Brody King!! He is becoming more tattoo than man at this point. But Brody storms right in, and Dustin fires off on him! They brawl, Brody gets the edge and he ROCKS Dustin! Brody CLOBBERS Dustin, fires off body shots and forearms and a CHOP! Brody throws more heavy hands and Dustin wobbles. Brody DECKS Dustin, then he CLOBBERS Dante and Starks at the same time. And now, the last man for the blue ring, the last entrant overall, is Freshly Squeezed, Orange Cassidy!

Brody DECKS Dante while Cassidy takes his time to get to the ring. Blade & Butcher double whip and double clothesline Swerve! Starks AX HANDLES Keith, he and Hobbs mug Keith, and Brody puts Dante on the ropes. Dante clings for dear life but Brody CHOPS him to the floor! Brody ELIMINATES Dante! Dustin CLOBBERS Brody in the corner and fires off hands! Hangman helps out, both knowing Brody is literally a big threat. Cassidy dodges the mercs to DOUBLE RANA!

But Hobbs dumps Dustin and ELIMINATES him! Butcher & Blade DOUBLE HEADBUTT Konosuke, then DRAG THE- NO, Konosuke fights and RANAS Butcher! Konosuke runs at the corner but Blade saves Butcher!

The tattooed titan is victorious! Will Jon Moxley be able to hold onto the interim title against such a villainous foe? Or will CM Punk return to see the House of Black?

 

Backstage interview with Hook.

Alex Marvez sits with the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil on the couch and thanks him for taking this time. Last week, Hook got a big win over NJPW’s The DKC as part of Forbidden Door weekend. But the world wants to know, what is next for Hook? Hook just eats his chips. Well, Marvez did see some of Hook’s previous interviews, to call them that. Marvez is starting to think Hook is more of a “go with the flow” kind of guy. Hook stands up, pushes Marvez down, and tells him, “That’s the problem, Alex. Most people don’t think. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.” Hook is a deep thinker, it seems. Has he already seen four steps ahead of the AEW roster?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championship Eliminator: The Young Bucks VS Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI!

Matt & Nick Jackson feel alone right now without the rest of the Undisputed Elite, but they have the gold to keep them warm. Will they be able to shine bright in this high stakes match? Or will it be lights out, courtesy of #BISHAMON?

The teams sort out and Nick starts with the Fierce Warrior, Hirooki Goto. They circle, tie up, and Goto powers Nick to a corner. The ref counts, Goto lets off at 4, and fans applaud the clean break. Nick and Goto go again, they tie up and Nick puts Goto on ropes. Nick lets off, but then kicks low! Nick fires off punches and stomps to the corner, then whips corner to corner. Goto bounces off buckles to run Nick over! Tag to Hashi, they double whip Nick to run him over! Matt wants in but the ref says he missed the tag, Hashi runs for the hip toss senton! Fans fire up as Goto & Hashi intercept Matt with a kick! And they drum away on his back!

Nick gets up, but he gets a kick and the drumming! Fans fire up while Nick is punch drunk. Hashi CLUBS Nick, whips him to ropes, but Nick holds ropes to BOOT back. Tag to Matt, Nick aims for a corner but Hashi blocks the buckle bump to give a buckle bump! Matt runs in but into an elbow! Hashi runs in, into the NORTHERN LIGHTS! The Polar Express begins! Another, and another, and then Goto gets in, for a DOUBLE NORTHERN LIGHTS! Fans fire up and Matt flexes! Matt gives Nick a boost to ESCALARA! Direct hit on Bishamon and fans fire up while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Nick puts Hashi in for Matt, and Matt paces around the Head Hunter. Matt stomps Hashi, waves hi to fans, then throws down fists. Matt drags Hashi up, Nick says “SUCK IT!” and Matt whips Hashi into the corner. The Bucks coordinate, CLOTHESLINE ENZIGURI COMBO! Matt hits a fist drop, then he keeps on Hashi with haymakers. Matt throws more hands, pie faces Hashi, and eggs him on. Hashi throws body shots back! Hashi CHOPS Matt, CHOPS him again, but Matt rakes eyes! Matt whips, Hashi reverses but Matt slips out and trips Goto! Matt then shoulders into Hashi, slingshots up and over, and runs to LEAPING LARIAT!

Matt kips up, then mockingly goes to the Bishamon corner to reach out for a tag. But then Goto yanks Matt down! Nick PENALTY KICKS Goto from the apron, ROCKS Hashi, then springboard DOUBLE STOMPS Hashi down! Nick soaks up the cheers and jeers while Matt gets back in the ring. Matt KNEES Hashi in the back, kicks him around, and Matt paces around while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Nick reels Hashi in, but Hashi suplexes Nick first! Fans fire up while both men are down, and both men crawl to their corners. Hot tags to Matt and Goto! Goto rallies with shoulders and elbows, then a hip toss! Matt goes to a corner, Goto runs in to MURAMASA! And BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Goto drags Matt up, fireman’s carries, but Matt slips off and ROCKS Goto with a haymaker! And another! Matt runs, Nick tags in, Matt trips Goto up to whip. Goto reverses but Matt goes up and over, Nick SHINING WIZARDS! Matt cravats, Nick gives him the boost, SLICED BREAD! SHINING WIZARD again and Nick covers, Hashi breaks it!

Matt drags Hashi up, he and Nick mug him and toss him out. The Bucks drag Goto up to whip him into the corner.  Nick runs in, Goto dodges and CLOBBERS Matt! Goto then fireman’s carries Nick! Nick slips off, Goto backs him down, and Hashi runs in to CLOTHESLINE in the corner! Feed to Goto’s kick, Goto hooks Nick up and Hashi runs, GOTO GOTO HUNTER! Cover, TWO!! Nick survives the Russian Leg Sweep Blockbuster, but Hashi WRECKS Matt off the apron. Fans fire up, Bishamon gets Nick up but Nick BOOTS Hashi away and Matt drags Hashi out! Matt sends Hashi into railing, Nick slips out of the dragon sleeper but Goto ROCKS him!

Goto whips, Nick flips up and around but Goto dodges. Nick dodges again, Goto follows and LARIATS! Matt returns to ROCK Goto, but Goto follows, only for Matt to SUPERKICK Goto down! Hashi returns, Matt SUPERKICKS! Hashi rebounds to LARIAT! All four men are down and the fans fire up again! A standing count starts, Hashi and Matt bail out but Nick runs in from the corner.

Fans fire up with Bishamon and they reset with the dragon sleeper and leg hold! But Matt SUPERKICKS Hashi! Matt then saves Nick from Goto’s suplex, and they DOUBLE SUPERKICK Goto down! The Bucks have Hashi’s arms and fans fire up for the B T E TRIGGER!! But they want to finish Goto! Goto is in the blue ring, Nick goes up and up to CROSSBODY Goto down! Matt gets Hashi back up in a gut wrench, and Nick springboards from ring to ring! SUPER MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, the Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall (deny Bishamon a title shot)

Goto & Hashi could not shut down the AEW World Tag Team Champions, and they will return home to Japan without a title shot. Will others from NJPW look to creep through the Forbidden Door to try their hand? Or are the Bucks on to some big prey of their own?

 

AEW hears from Jonathan Gresham and Tully Blanchard.

“Last week, I made a handshake agreement with Tully Blanchard. And I’m a man of my word. I said that Lee Moriarty and myself would take on two of his best clients in a tag team match. Now I’m happy, I’m really excited to announce that that match will happen right here on Rampage next week.” The mastermind Tully himself tells us that we are “going to see what it’s like to come up against the best in the business!” Gresham knows fans aren’t quite used to hearing his name on television, but we will all get used to it. We’re used to a couple of guys in particular, Claudio Castagnoli and Bryan Danielson, claiming they are the best technical wrestler, when we all know GRESHAM is the best?

Gresham is tired of being left out of important conversations! They know that HE is the best technical wrestler, and he has spent 17 YEARS chasing that dream. He has accomplished that by being THE ROH World Champion! And next week on Rampage, Gresham shows us all why. Will the Octopus deny Tully Blanchard Enterprises their shot at his title while also sending a message to the Swiss Cyborg and American Dragon?

 

Mark Henry talks to tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man starts with asking the Native Beast and The Problem why they brutally attacked Toni Storm last week. Why? Uh, great question. Let’s go to the weather map for answers. The “Toni Storm” is really just a high pressure system of hot air and BULL- Wait, hold on. It might be late but the kids are watching, so Nyla won’t go there. But Nyla will say that “Toni Storm is encroaching on my territory here in All Elite Wrestling.” Nyla is the #1 contender! All roads to the championships lead through HER! Last week, Storm had a problem in Shafir. And if Shafir is The Problem, then Nyla is a GADDAMN CATASTROPHE!

Storm tells Nyla that while Forbidden Door didn’t go as planned, that doesn’t mean her momentum stops here. Storm will finish Nyla and go back after Thunder Rosa, and she won’t stop until she becomes THE AEW Women’s World Champion. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Lightning From Down Under strike the Native Beast down? Or will this Vicious Vixen be the gatekeeper to the gold?

Toni Storm VS Nyla Rose w/ Marina Shafir!

The bell rings, the two tie up and fans fire up as they’re in a deadlock. Nyla knees and CLUBS Storm down, then pie faces her. Nyla runs but Storm avoids the punt to fire off forearms! Nyla throws body shots back but Storm hits her more and more! Storm runs, tilt-o-whirls, but Nyla blocks that to CLOBBER Storm! Marina likes what she sees while Nyla toys with Storm. Nyla kicks Storm around, sits her up and rains down fists. Nyla runs, but into a drop toehold! Storm runs to basement dropkick! Fans fire up, Storm runs corner to corner, and she uppercuts in the corner! Storm fires off stomps and forearms, then an uppercut!

Storm runs but Nyla CLOBBERS her again! Nyla snarls and she clamps onto Storm’s arm to twist the wrist and bend the elbow! Storm endures, fights up, but Nyla double wristlocks to then suplex! Nyla brings Storm up again, but Storm fires off forearms! Storm ROCKS Nyla, runs the ropes, but Nyla claims something is in her eye. The ref checks, and misses Marina holding the ropes open! Storm takes a tumble, and The Problem is definitely a problem at ringside! Marina BOOTS Storm back down, and fans boo while Rampage goes picture in picture.

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, and I really like how the “Royal Rampage” works. NXT should’ve thought to do a match like that whenever they did WarGames. But I will say, I was really hoping they were going to give us Keith VS Swerve at the end of this. It’d be a great way to add to their story while also giving one of them a great match against Moxley. But Keith and Swerve are sticking together a little longer since they need to still settle things with Team Taz. And in the end, we did get a fresh match-up for Moxley in Brody King. That is happening already, and it’s going to be badass even without build, I can’t wait to see it.

Good segment from Hook. He is exactly how a strong silent type Face should be written in my opinion. Since he rarely talks, when Hook chooses to talk, it is more impactful. Also this could just be that they aren’t quite sure where to put Hook right now, but he just needs to start having longer, more competitive matches with some of the other established names. Maybe against Caster real quick before the Ass Boys come back around to fight The Acclaimed for their father’s love. Plus, imagine the rap Caster could come up with about Hook.

Good promo from Gresham, and one line from Tully, to set up the coming ROH on Rampage match. Gresham also calling out Bryan and Claudio is great, I think everyone would love to see that happen as part of Death Before Dishonor on July 23rd. One thing I do want to say, and it isn’t a knock on Gresham but more a choice of the companies, it feels like they downgraded the world title’s design. I know it’s based on the original design, but the design they had looked amazing. This legacy design looks too much like the ROH Tag Titles which FTR have. But again, not really anything that affects Gresham or his booking, it’s just something visual that I wish they didn’t do.

The Bucks VS Bishamon not being main event was a bit of a surprise, but then I realized they probably didn’t want any language barrier affecting the promo with Mark Henry. It was a great tag match, definitely worthy of the tag titles, but that is why Bucks win. I would think FTR makes it through DBD with the ROH tag titles, and then they and the Bucks can start towards All Out for FOUR TITLES AT ONCE for the most amazing tag match ever! And then we got a good promo segment with Nyla and Storm before a very good main event. Storm winning is great, they could easily give us Rosa VS Storm 2, and at the very least, we’re getting Rosa & Storm VS Nyla & Shafir to help build the next title story.

My Score: 8.6/10
