Tag Team Gauntlet Part 3: FTR w/ Tully Blanchard VS Best Friends!

Chuck’s leg is still bothering him, but that’s not going to slow anything down! The teams sort out as AEW goes picture in picture, #AEWGauntlet.

#FollowTheRules? Depends on how you look at it. Hangman got rid of the Bucks for them, and FTR took advantage of a battered Chuckie T. But will Hangman who are really his friends at All Out?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin.

In response to last week, Darby pretends to be Ricky Starks now, with the thumbtacks in his back to complete the look. “You really think I’m afraid of you, Ricky?” Darby climbs up a bridge’s frame to jump off the top! Darby isn’t afraid of anything. Will he use that recklessness to wreck Starks’ body all over again?

 

AEW All Out announces the 2020 Casino Battle Royale!

Darby Allin and Lance Archer have already stepped up to participate, who else jumps in for a future AEW World Championship match?

 

Lance Archer w/ Jake Roberts VS Sean Maluta!

As is the Murderhawk Monster tradition, Archer CLOBBERS a wrestler in the front row at ringside! Archer finally goes into the ring, will he “welcome” Maluta to AEW the same way?

Maluta goes after Archer before Justin Roberts even finishes his introduction! The forearms do nothing, the bell rings and Archer DECKS Maluta! Archer finishes his own entrance, taking off the jacket and shirt. Archer fakes the fans out, simply throwing the shirt down on the ground. Maluta gets up, Archer runs and DERAILS him! Archer pursues Maluta as Maluta flops out of the ring. Archer bumps Maluta off the apron, then has him against the railing to CHOP! Archer puts Maluta back in, looms over him, and clubs away on Maluta’s chest! The ref reprimands, Archer lets up but smiles as fans boo.

Archer drags Maluta up, Maluta fires off forearms and CHOPS, but they don’t bother Archer at all. Archer CLOBBERS Maluta again! Archer drags Maluta up, suplex TOSSES him to a corner! Archer stands Maluta up in the corner, runs corner to corner and back elbows hard! Archer keeps moving, hits another elbow, then a third! Archer soaks up the heat and then goes back to Maluta. Archer drag Maluta up, choke grip to MURDERHAWK CHOKE SLAM!! Cover, but Archer lets up! The Snake laughs as Archer drags Maluta up again. Archer CHOPS Maluta, hoists him up top and inverted crucifix for the BLACKOUT BOMB!! EBD CLAW!! Archer dribbles Maluta’s head, covers, and wins!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall

Archer doesn’t let go of Maluta until he’s satisfied! The Snake “checks” on Maluta, but he doesn’t really care. Snake and Archer stick around because Snake’s going to speak, after the break.

AEW returns and Jake the Snake speaks. “Now, there are going to be 20 men that think they have the great chance of winning the Casino Battle Royal.” But only one man walks out with that, and it damn sure better be Archer. Archer has wanted to wipe the blemish off the record. That one little loss cost them so much time, but now is time for them to leave their mark. Does Archer think he can throw 20 men out? “As fast as they step in the ring, every single one of them goes out, because every… body… dies.” Feeding opponents to Archer is like feeding a wood chipper. You put the log in, confetti comes out. Some might think that’s boring, but they don’t. Roberts loves watching Archer hurt people.

But wait, who is this coming out? “Yo, kid. FTW. Bring it on.” Taz and his team come out!? Ricky Starks and Brian Cage are here, and Roberts mocks them as “The Flintstones.” Taz tells Jake needs to slow down. They’ve never crossed paths, so Taz doesn’t want Jake to make a mistake. The Murderhawk Monster will NOT be the winner at the Casino Battle Royal. It’ll be Team Taz, either through Ricky Starks or Brian Cage. Jake interrupts and tells Taz to put his guys in chicken suits, “because if they come to that battle royal, they’re going to get plucked!” Oh is that how they’ll play this? Taz is trying to be a gentleman. Jake doesn’t care about that. Taz wants to keep this calm. One of HIS men will win at All Out.

Cage and Archer want to throw down, but here comes Darby Allin! Ricky looks around but Darby is skating in from the outside! He gets right in and dropkicks Starks literally out of his shoes! And then slingshots onto Starks at the ramp! Darby has Absolute for a brawl, trips him up and hammers away! Starks gets up but can’t get away! Darby tackles Starks to the backstage area, and Archer is fired up. Jake says to leave it be for now, they’ll do this on their time. But the fans want to “Let Them Fight!” Cage eggs Archer on, holding up the FTW Championship. Forget who wins, who survives the All Out Casino Battle Royal with these four in it?

 

MJF and team head out.

Apparently MJF needs a walker. And he asks if Lee Johnson thinks this is funny. Lee says no. Really? Wasn’t he laughing? He wasn’t. Good. MJF vows to get Moxley for this. His walker gets stuck in the rug, so he has to strain himself to keep it going. Will Moxley literally sign away his right to use his best move?

 

AEW looks closely at the AEW Women’s World Championship showdown.

Hikaru Shida put out an open challenge. “If you think you are strong enough, tough enough and you think you have enough passion, show me. I am waiting.” The open challenge was answered by Thunder Rosa, the current NWA Women’s World Champion. Tony Schiavone remembers first seeing Rosa and thinking, “This girl is one of the most talented women’s wrestlers in the world.” Rosa vows to raise women’s wrestling to a new level. NWA President Billy Corgan tells fans who don’t know Rosa to prepare for a surprise, because no one loves the sport and a good fight like her.

JR speculates the magnitude of Thunder Rosa becoming a dual champion between NWA and AEW. That’s a “big if,” because wrestling is what Shida is put on this earth to do. When AEW Management approached Corgan about such a collaboration, Rosa VS Shida, he was all for it. All champions should be fighting champions, and this is a great opportunity for the two companies to work together. We get a glimpse at the contract signing between Shida and Rosa. They both sign on the dotted line and it is official. Rosa says that title will be hers, but Shida says she will win. Only one will be proven right on September 5th!

 

MJF and team head to the ring.

The walker gets stuck again but he manages to make it down the steps of the ramp and to the ring. Though he obviously needs help to get through the ropes. Is MJF even medically cleared for All Out? Moxley makes his entrance now, from the stands! The fans cheer as Moxley has his copy of the contract. Moxley joins MJF and the rest in the ring, and MJF’s lawyer reminds us that the contract is to ban the “double arm DDT” for the All Out championship match. MJF signed it and says it’s that easy. Moxley double checks it as MJF says we’ve seen a million contract signings in wrestling. 10 out of 10 times, it ends in physicality. But “Jonathan,” as much as MJF would love to slap off that snide smirk over Moxley attacking “like a gutless coward” trying to end MJF’s career, MJF won’t. Because unlike-

The fans cheer loudly so MJF has to speak louder. MJF says he can separate business from emotions. So please, practice social distancing. Kinda like his hairline right now. Hah, funny. MJF will get there one day, after he hits puberty. Hah, really funny. Moxley talks rather eloquently for “someone from Middle America, not that that says much.” And Moxley is sharp, like a marble. But MJF has to admit everyone wants to see this match. Since it was announced, fans have been clamoring for Dictator Jon VS MJF. But MJF just doesn’t get the hype of this “one trick pony.” Ooh~ look at me, I’m Jon Moxley, I’m crazy! But after watching him, MJF realizes Moxley is really good. And that’s why fans love him, right? Fans cheer to confirm.

Fans like Moxley because he is a badass. In fact, MJF remembers when Mike Tyson was here and watching a Moxley match. Tyson pointed and said in front of everyone, “I wouldn’t want to be in a dark alley with that guy.” That’s powerful. And neither would MJF, really. No one in their right mind would. But sadly, at All Out, it won’t be an alley. It’ll be a wrestling ring. And MJF’s bad neck or not, that is where Moxley is in danger. MJF is a pro-wrestling prodigy, and on September 5th- Fans, MJF loves you but c’mon, he’s talking. MJF says that he will systematically take Moxley apart, target Moxley’s weakness and use every single part of the ring to his advantage with the same steady hands as a brain surgeon.

And then does Moxley know what happens next? Moxley will panic. Moxley is not a wrestler, but a glorified goon. Moxley will try to get MJF to fall into the same trap as everyone else: going outside of the ring and into Moxley’s territory. Moxley wants MJF on the floor, by the steps, the railing, because that is all Moxley knows. All Moxley studied and idolized were guys like The Sandman, New Jack, Jon Zandig, and Onita. Y’know, “hot garbage.” The guys MJF studied were wrestlers. Buddy Rogers, Ernie Ladd and Tully Blanchard. And because of that, MJF has too high of a ring IQ to play Moxley’s game. MJF will keep Mox in the ring “like a dog on a leash” and beat Mox like the dog he is. The fanboys will be calling ASPCA but it’ll be too late. At the end of All Out, MJF has “Pretty Platinum,” the most important title in all of professional sports, and he becomes our AEW World Champion! We deserve better.

But, Jon, if you think you’re so good and are a better wrestler, MJF can’t wrap his brain around how Moxley thinks he needs one little move. Does anyone else get it? Unless Moxley isn’t man enough to beat someone without the Paradigm Shift. If that’s the case, maybe Moxley should tell his hot little wife that MJF’s single. All Moxley does is stand up hearing those fighting words, and the lawyer shouts at him to stay back or get sued. Harm a hair on MJF’s head and they’ll sue. Sign the contract or get sued! Moxley tells the lawyer, “Sit down, dick wad.” Same for Flex Magazine, Wardlow. Fans cheer Moxley on as he continues.

“Should I sign this contract?” Well he’s no lawyer, but it’s pretty simple: Does Moxley need the Paradigm Shift to beat MJF? No. But does Moxley want to dump MJF six to seven more times on his head? Yes, very much. Does he want MJF to have permanent neck damage? Kinda. Because Moxley doesn’t like MJF. What MJF wants to do is take away Moxley’s most dangerous weapon, but what he’s forcing Moxley to do is to get creative. MJF is forcing Moxley to think of all the limbs he could snap. Or all the way she could choke MJF until he’s blue and passes out. Moxley is now thinking of all the ways he could hurt MJF.

Now Moxley doesn’t want to get sued, he doesn’t know any lawyers. One public defender, but even he’s in jail. So Moxley has to sign the contract, and he does. “But remember two things: Nothing you say matters; and nothing I sign matters.” Because at All Out, MJF is a dead man. The fans is fired up as Moxley signs, and MJF celebrates. “You idiot!” The lawyer says that when this is all over, maybe he’ll represent Moxley because boy did he do the stupidest thing he’s ever done! Yeah, good business. And no one broke the table. And thanks for being reasonable about Moxley’s amendment to page 17, “that was clutch.” Wait, what? There were only 16 pages. What’s on page 17? They didn’t read that? Dude, never sign something without reading it!

Because you see, next week is a tune-up match. Moxley VS the lawyer, Mark! And if Mark doesn’t show, “bonehead” MJF doesn’t get his title match! WHOA!! MJF is furious! And in the match with Mark, the Paradigm Shift WILL be legal. Wear a helmet. Hmm, maybe Moxley can be a lawyer. Thank you, AEW, good night! Moxley gets the better of MJF’s legal team, and now he’ll get to get the Paradigm Shift out of his system before All Out!

 

AEW reviews the coming grudge match of Best Friends and Proud ‘n’ Powerful!

Santana clears the air: Best Friends are dumbasses. Santana and Ortiz wreck Trent’s mom’s van, and the best Best Friends can come up with is, “Apologize!” They must be buggin’. And they wouldn’t have made it home that night anyway. This wasn’t even about the Best Friends anyway. But props to Best Friends puffing up your chests and helping out Orange Cassidy. But now they gotta deal with the pitbulls. PNP will apologize ahead of time that Mama Baretta wasn’t in the van when it got wrecked! Time to pay your dues to the illest, boys!

 

8 Man Tag: The Butcher, The Blade & The Lucha Brothers VS Joey Janela, Sonny Kiss, Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison!

Enough said! Will anyone be able to stop this fearsome five man unit?

 

The Dark Order heads to the ring.

Colt Cabana smiles and applauds as Evil Uno has a mic. “Wonderful! Beautiful!” Stu Grayson and the Numbers are having fun as they bring a casket out! They set it down on stage, and Uno says “The Dark Order has been on Cloud 9 since last Saturday’s AEW Dynamite.” Evil Uno has never, ever been this happy! Stu went out of his way and bought two of the most beautiful vehicles on his dream list, those both being Snapper brand riding mowers… The Exalted One bought not just two lawnmowers, or even three, four or five. Someone help him put up a finger. Thank you, Alex Reynolds. SIX of the most exceptional riding mowers known to man now belong to them!

This is as much a celebration of championship gold as it is a celebration of this casket. This represents them bidding farewell to the man known as Cody. Where oh where is Cody? Open the casket, and there he is! But just kidding, it’s Preston Vance, aka Number 10, with a pretend American Nightmare neck tattoo. Throw away that ugly Nightmare Family track suit and close the lid! The casket lid is closed on the Nightmare Family! The story is over and they are buried to make way for a new king of wrestling! The NEW TNT Champion, Mr. Brodie Lee! Isn’t he great?!

Mr. Brodie Lee arrives, holding the title high and wearing a brand new suit. Anna Jay is with him, and everyone gets a high five from Mr. Brodie! Colt shakes Brodie’s hand and Stu gets a hug. Brodie tells Tony Schiavone to get off commentary to join them on stage. Brodie takes the mic and leads the way into the ring. Schiavone joins them and gives us another introduction of the TNT Champion, Mr. Brodie Lee. To be honest, Schiavone can’t see anyone taking the title from him, especially with his group behind him. Brodie wants us all to look back to December 2019. “While each and every one of these men was laughed at and ridiculed by people like you,” Brodie felt he was in prison at home because of those same people!

But Brodie does what he says he will, and just a week and a half ago, Brodie told Cody that the gold was coming home with him. But Brodie did give Cody back the old belt, SMACK, just like that! The Dark Order chants, “Cody Sucks!” and Brodie points out the symbolism. They buried the Nightmare Family, and there is not a soul that can stand up to him! No more Open Challenges! No more indie wrestlers getting TV time on Brodie’s watch! And Cody is never, EVER getting the title back! The Dark Order chants “You Deserve It!” and he tells them to shut it. Brodie takes this time to introduce us to the newest member of the Dark Order family. This is Anna Jay, Number 99, the Great One, and the QUEENSLAYER!!

John Silver speaks up, and says he has been celebrating Mr. Brodie’s win since Saturday! Silver just wants to say Mr. Brodie is the man! Brodie DECKS Silver for talking too much. And then tells Reynolds to pick him up. Schiavone, leave. Silver, stand in line. There is not a soul on earth that can touch Brodie! The Dark Order is the hottest act in pro-wrestling, Brodie is the hottest champ in pro-wrestling, and there is NOTHING anyone can do about that! Look up and- Dustin Rhodes attacks!! QT follows after, and the two Nightmare Family members still standing take out the Numbers! But that’s still 10v2 and they get beat down! SPINE BUSTER for QT!

Stu stomps QT while Uno stomps Dustin. But here comes SCORPIO SKY! Scorpio swings on the numbers, clotheslines Uno out, and stares Brodie down. Scorpio points at the champ, but Anna Jay sneaks up to SLAP him! And then Brodie clobbers him! Brodie tells Colt to follow as he and Anna get out of the ring. Brodie drags Uno up to get on his case for letting this happen. Uno apologizes as Brodie, Colt and Anna leave. Uno coordinates the others but MATT CARDONA hits a ROUGH RYDER! Then he tosses Stu out, and evens the odds with the Numbers! Cardona, Scorpio and the Natural Nightmares hold the ring together! Brodie returns to sort his people out but also taunts Dustin with the title. Will Dustin and friends carry on the fight for Cody?

 

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Hangman Page.

Dasha finds Hangman at the bar, but where else would he be? She asks him why he cost the Bucks their match. But the Bucks storm in to get the answer for themselves. Why, Hangman? Is he afraid to face the Bucks again? Or is he insecure? Who even is Hangman anymore? Hangman’s pushed himself to this point. The Bucks wanted Hangman to be their friend but he kept thinking he wasn’t good enough. He was always good enough! All they wanted was a friend! There was a point in time when Hangman was a jobber, but this is even worse. It’s about damn time someone told him the truth. “You’re nothing but a drunk.” Matt takes Hangman’s drink to throw it in his face!!

Matt isn’t done running him down, either. “Since November, you’ve been asking for it, and we’ve been clinging on to something that doesn’t even exist anymore.” Hangman didn’t want to be their friend, didn’t want to be in The Elite, but The Elite was hanging on to something that wasn’t there anymore. And now, Hangman, this is what you wanted, so they’re done! Hangman is OUT of The Elite!! They slam the door and the mirror on it cracks. Hangman looks at himself in the broken mirror. Can Hangman stomach what he’s done?

 

3v1 Handicap Match: Britt Baker, Rebel & Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian VS Big Swole!

The Role Model gives Big Swole the match she wants, sort of. Swole forgot to specify what kind of match they’d finally have, so Britt took advantage of stacking the deck. Will Swole break the upper hand Britt thinks she has?

Britt has a mic to tell Swole, “You’re welcome for the house, my big return.” And also, seeing as how Swole has a fat chance of winning, the Role Model offers inspiration. If Swole wins, she and Britt will go 1v1 in any match Swole wants. “Let’s go, girls,” #ShaniaTwain. Rebel and Penelope attack Swole together, then they double whip. But Swole ducks the double clothesline to fire off forearms! Ford knees low, the ref has Rebel go to the corner, and Ford fireman’s carries as the bell finally rings! Ford hits a rolling senton and covers, ONE! Ford drags Swole up, Swole throws body shots but Ford ducks the roundhouse for Swole to HEADBUTT!

Ford kicks low, puts Swole on the ropes and chokes! The ref counts, Ford lets up but Britt uses a crutch to poke Swole in the head! Britt pokes Swole more, Ford drags her up to ram into the corner. Rebel tags in. Ford goes corner to corner to handspring back elbow! Rebel runs in to corner shining wizard! Rebel climbs up, as Britt tells her to, but she’s a bit wobbly. Swole ROCKS Ford and trips Rebel up! Swole rocks Rebel, climbs up and brings Rebel up for a SUPER STEINER! Cover but Kip distracts! Swole slides out to trip Kip, and take him DIRTY DANCING! Ford BOOTS Swole and puts her in!

Ford drags Swole into the drop zone for Rebel’s MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Swole survives and Britt is furious! Rebel drags Swole back to tag in Ford, Ford mugs Swole and throws forearms. Ford chicken wings, Britt gives Rebel a crutch but obviously the ref sees that! The ref takes that crutch away, but Britt passes Rebel the other one! Rebel swings but Swole moves and Ford gets CLOBBERED! Swole throws Rebel out, covers Ford, Swole wins!!

Winner: Big Swole, by pinfall

And Britt has to eat her words!! Swole will get Britt 1v1 and in a match stipulation of her choice! Britt is stuck on the ramp since the steps aren’t wheelchair accessible. What will Britt have to face when she finally faces the consequences of her actions?

 

AEW sets up for next week’s Wednesday Night Dynamite!

AEW is hoping to return to their normal time slot, which means they’re hoping for that grudge match of PNP and Best Friends! Do Trent and Chuck have a hope and a prayer of surviving Santana and Ortiz? Jericho will also return to action to tune-up for the Mimosa Mayhem by taking on the Bad Boy, Joey Janela! Then a HUGE 8 Man Tag will feed into All Out as The Addiction and Private Party team up against The Young Bucks and Jurassic Express! The winning four then face each other at All Out, surely with tag title implications on the line! Will the Bucks rebound from Hangman’s betrayal to get a big win? And of course, let’s not forget Jon Moxley taking on MJF’s lawyer, Mark! Will Moxley leave his mark on Mark before focusing all his attention and sadistic creativity on MJF?

 

The Dark Order returns.

At least, Anna Jay, Stu and Uno. They have a folder that reads “Join Us,” and it is presented to Anna Jay’s partner in the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup, Taynara Conti! Conti tentatively accepts, and hugs Jay! Is Tay going to #JoinDarkOrder now?

 

Tables Match: Matt Hardy VS Sammy Guevara!

The Spanish God has his cue cards again to speak to us while AEW is picture in picture! “Broken spirits? NOPE! Broken Sammy? Not a chance! Broken Matt? Stand by! Prepare to witness the breaking of a legend! Matt Hardy! You can’t delete a Spanish God. Hit me up!” And a doodle of a broken table. Will Sammy be made to eat those words after the break?

AEW returns as Hardy makes his entrance, and the bell rings. Hardy dodges Sammy to SLAP him, club him down, then scrap with him around the ring. Hardy cranks on Sammy’s head with a facelock then lets him go to kick him. Sammy gets to a corner, Hardy runs in but misses, and Sammy ENZIGURIS! Sammy whips but Hardy breaks free to club Sammy down. Hardy drags Sammy up but Sammy knees low. Sammy facelocks and hops onto the ropes but Hardy denies the DDT to shove Sammy HARD out of the ring! Hardy pursues, drags Sammy up and whips him up and over the railing! Hardy hurries after Sammy, punches away on Sammy in a spare seat and the crowd fires up!

Hardy whips Sammy but Sammy leaps the railing, only for Hardy to chuck chairs at him!! Sammy ducks and chair hits post rather than his head! Hardy continues after Sammy but Sammy KNEES him down! Sammy brings out more tables as AEW goes picture in picture, #AEWTables.

Sammy sets up the new table against the ring, Hardy hits low and powerbomb lifts, but Sammy fights back! Sammy is down, KNEES Hardy, then scoops him to a Torture Rack! GO TO HOSPITAL! Hardy is down but Sammy needs to catch his breath and check his face. Sammy comes back to drag Hardy up. Fans rally but Sammy puts Hardy on the table. Sammy moves things aside, gets back in the ring and builds speed. Sammy FLIES but Hardy moves, Sammy crashes through the table!! But this doesn’t end the match, because someone has to put their opponent through a table, not themselves. Hardy hobbles up and Sammy crawls out of the wreckage as things continue.

Hardy leans against a table, Sammy runs in but Hardy avoids the dropkick! Sammy bounces off the wood and clutches his leg. Hardy drags Sammy, brings him up and around, but Sammy escapes the bomb by grabbing ropes and getting back in the ring. Sammy is BLEEDING from his forehead as Hardy runs in and gives him a SIDE EFFECT! Hardy says “DELETE!” but he falls over! Hardy doesn’t seem any better right now, but he blocks a kick to spin Sammy around, only for Sammy to heel kick right back! Sammy goes after Hardy at the apron, and it’s hard to tell if Hardy’s bleeding or that’s just his red streak. Sammy tries to suplex, Hardy resists so Sammy clubs him. Hardy hits back, drags Sammy to the apron, but Sammy boots back!

Sammy goes up top, steadies himself, and LEAPS! Hardy gets clear, Sammy lands on his feet, but gets an APRON SIDE EFFECT! Hardy scoops Sammy to set him on a table and then goes back to the apron. Hardy leaps, but Sammy moves and Hardy crashes down through the table!! But just like with Sammy, this doesn’t count because Hardy put himself through the table. Sammy walks around the way, looks for something under the ring, and Hardy manages to get in the ring and hobble over. The ref checks on Hardy but Sammy brings a chair into the ring! Sammy aims but Hardy kicks him first! Hardy puts the chair around Sammy’s head, FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!! How is Sammy even okay!?

The fan loses their minds as Hardy drags out a very special table! It has the word, “DELETED!” on it! Hardy puts it in, sets it up, and stands it over the chair?! Sammy is set on the table, right where the chair is wedged. Hardy hobbles to a corner, climbs up and the fans chant “DELETE! DELETE!” But Hardy wobbles and has to step down. Sammy climbs up, drags Hardy up, aims for the table… SUPERPLEX THROUGH TABLE AND CHAIR!! Sammy wins!!

Winner: Sammy Guevara

Jericho is definitely relieved and happy that his protege survived! How many stitches will it take for that gash on Sammy’s head? How many weeks will it take for Hardy to recover from this? But wait, here comes Orange Cassidy to go after Jericho!! Cassidy leaps over commentary to tackle Jericho into the backdrop! JR and Schiavone give this space as referees rush over. Jericho and Cassidy keep brawling, Sammy joins in, Cassidy decks Jericho! Then he gets free to SUPER PUNCH Jericho! Cassidy keeps raining down punches, referees try to get him to stop but he won’t. Jericho hits back with haymakers of his own, fans are fired up for “Freshly Squeezed!”

Referees finally separate Jericho and Cassidy, but then Jericho breaks free to tackle Cassidy again! Cassidy turns i around to ground ‘n’ pound, Sammy is down from the gash in his head, and this is how AEW has to end!! Will there be nothing but mayhem before these two go all out?


My Thoughts:

Another great Dynamite for being another special broadcast. Opening with the gauntlet makes all the sense in the world, and it was all great stuff. The biggest thing was Hangman betraying the Young Bucks and them kicking him out of The Elite! The emotion playing on everyone’s faces was so good! If this doesn’t mean Hangman joins FTR under Tully so they and Shawn Spears can be the AEW Four Horsemen, I don’t know what does. Though with Kenny Omega looking to be the Heel one, that could be the point so that we’re swerved when Omega joins them instead. We’ll definitely see when All Out has Omega & Hangman VS FTR for the titles.

Sean Maluta sure bounces around promotions, doesn’t he? And around the ring with Archer in there against him. Archer wins, of course, but the real development is that there’s stable warfare between Archer and Jake the Snake with #TeamTaz. Darby gets his shots in on Ricky Starks after a really effective promo, but I don’t see Darby joining up with The Snake. The 8 Man Tag was great, and the combination of Butcher, Blade and Lucha Bros is definitely incredible, and I think it’s very interesting Eddie Kingston had to deny this was a stable/faction. It totally is, and they’re definitely going to work together against the other 16. Now, I’ve yet to see a group of wrestlers working together in a battle royal make it to the end, but it’d be pretty cool if AEW let Kingston and his boys play that scenario out.

We got a great preview for Shida VS Rosa. Rosa is definitely great, even as other characters in Lucha Underground and Women of Wrestling, and so of course her match with Shida is a show stealer already. However, as wild as it would be, I don’t see Shida losing her belt to give us a double champion that is from outside AEW. But either way, I do think an NWA-AEW partnership will make for more great programming like this in the future. The contract segment was great, because as MJF said, they avoided a brawl. Instead, we got a great “surprise” for MJF where Moxley can get his Paradigm Shift quota in on the “lawyer.” Plus, MJF really should’ve studied up on “Dictator Jon,” because Moxley beat Brodie Lee with a submission at Double Or Nothing. Moxley can use that on MJF’s “bad neck” and win that way, too.

The 3v1 Handicap match really ended up more like a 2v1 because for one, Britt didn’t look like she could wrestle in kayfabe so she didn’t even bother. Rebel still needs a little work but it makes a lot of sense that she messes up and that helps Swole win. Swole and Britt will now have the match at All Out we all knew they’d have, but with Swole having the option to add a stipulation, that’s going to be a lot of fun. That tables match with Hardy and Sammy was wild! And I like that they played up the “accidental” table spots with Sammy and Hardy each crashing through tables by themselves. And WOW Sammy got bloody there. It was wild stuff, the table with a chair wedged under it was insane and it’s quite the surprise for Guevara to win but also great. Then Cassidy coming out of nowhere to go after Jericho was incredible, too! This is all great stuff from Cassidy, I still want the real blow-off to be Blood & Guts but Mimosa Mayhem is going to be a lot of fun.

My Score: 9.2/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Young Bucks speak.

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

 

Mike Tyson speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Death Triangle double mule kick the legs, then they double BUZZSAW and double BASEMENT DROPKICK! Matt flops down and the fans fire up for Death Triangle! Cover, TWO! Fenix has Matt on ropes, clubs him then brings him up to knuckle lock. Fenix goes up, Matt trips him up! Fenix falls to the mat and Matt DECKS Pac! Tag to Nick, he runs and PENALTY KICKS Pac from the apron! Nick shoulders into Fenix and SLINGSHOT FACEBUSTERS! Nick grins and hopes the camera caught that. Fans rally as Nick scrapes Fenix’s face with his soles! Nick shoes off the Nike Diors but fans chant, “Those are Fake! Those are Fake!”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fans hope these four “Fight Forever!” but there is a time limit. And now there’s a ring count. Fenix gets Matt up and into the ring at 5 of 10, then Pac follows. Pac and Matt stand, Pac RAMS Matt into the corner! Pac hoists Matt up top, tags Fenix, and Pac goes up to get Matt in a SUPERPLEX! Fenix goes right up for a FROG SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!?! Fenix doesn’t stop, he puts Matt back in the drop zone and Pac tags back in. BLACK ARROW! Pac covers, but Nick returns to barrel through Fenix and BREAK it! Fenix storms right at Nick and throws him, but Nick spins around to CLOBBER Fenix! Nick drags Matt to their corner, tags in, and Nick runs at Pac, but gets a BOOT!

Pac and Nick stagger, Nick runs in but Pac dodges, but Nick holds ropes to deny the German Suplex! LOW BLOW where the ref couldn’t see!! Fenix tags in, springboards, into a SUPERKICK!! Nick DEMASKS Fenix!! Insult, meet injury! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!!! Cover, the Bucks win!!

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page and The Dark Order.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Mike Tyson & The Inner Circle.

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

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

 

Red Velvet VS Jade Cargill!

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

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

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

Jade stomps Velvet in a corner, stomps harder, and digs her boot in deep! Jade lets off as the ref counts, but Velvet fires off hands! Jade chokes Velvet into a buckle! The ref counts, Jade lets off and stomps Velvet again. Jade whips Velvet corner to corner so hard, Velvet goes through the gap and ends up on the apron! Jade drags Velvet back in, to ROPE GUILLOTINE!

Velvet lands on her feet! Velvet swings on Jade but into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Velvet survives, Jade grows annoyed, and AEW goes to break.

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

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker and Rebel.

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

 

Anthony Ogogo w/ The Factory VS Cole Karter!

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

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

Winner: Anthony Ogogo, by referee decision

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

 

Miro speaks.

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

 

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

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

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

Dax CHOPS Jericho, then grabs Floyd the Baseball Bat, but Tyson takes the bat from him, too! Jericho ROCKS Dax, and whips him into railing! Jericho takes railing apart, drags Dax over and bumps him into a piece! Dax tears his way through the crowd, Jericho is after him and it’s a hockey scrum!

Jericho has Dax in a corner for point-blank clotheslines! Jericho whips, Dax bounces off buckles and Jericho CLOBBERS him again! Dax bails out, has the medics check his stitches, and Jericho storms over. Dax grabs Justin Roberts’ mic to BOP Jericho! Dax whips Jericho into the stage wall! Jericho grabs the timekeeper’s pen to JAB the stitches!! Jericho scoop SLAMS Dax to the floor, then confiscates a camera! Jericho gets good footage of Dax, and they both flip each other off! Jericho BOOTS Dax, gives the camera back and ROCKS Dax! Jericho puts Dax in the ring, stomps him around, then digs his knee into Dax’s head!

The ref counts, Jericho lets off, and whips. Dax turns Jericho around to POST him! Jericho falls to the floor, Dax gets him up and whips him into railing! Tyson is there to make sure Dax does this fair, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Dax stalks Jericho, but has to refresh the count first. Dax waits on Jericho, and he WRECKS him with a baseball slide dropkick! Dax smirks, goes out to fetch Jericho but Tyson gets in his face. Jericho kicks Dax low and put him back in! Dax CLUBS Jericho and knees him down on the return! The ref counts, Dax lets off, and Dax paces around. Dax sits Jericho up, claws his face, but stops as the ref reprimands. Dax CLUBS Jericho at ropes, chokes him, and claws his face! The ref counts, Dax lets off, and then snapmares Jericho to KICK him! Dax gets Jericho up, hoists him to the top rope, and climbs up to go after him. Jericho throws body shots then headbutts Dax down!

Jericho adjusts, Dax stands, Jericho CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!! Dax is right up to CLOBBER Jericho! Dax paces around Jericho, drags him up by his hair, and AEW returns to single picture as he whips. Jericho blocks, Dax CHOPS, so Jericho CHOPS! It’s a CHOP fight! Jericho gets the edge, whips but Dax reverses, only for Jericho to run him over! Jericho runs to run Dax over with a shoulder! Fans fire up as Jericho runs but Dax puts him on the apron. Jericho goes up top fast, for FLYING AX HANDLES! Fans are fired up as Jericho runs to BULLDOG Dax down! And LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO!!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

The first shot has been fired, and the Demo God stands tall with his faction! Tyson joins Jericho in the ring to dare Pinnacle to do something! Jericho gets a mic to say, “As you pieces of trash leave, I want to make this official!” Iron Mike is an honorary member of the Inner Circle! Tyson is honored, will he stick by Jericho’s side through even Blood & Guts?

 

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

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

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

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

 

Thunder Rosa speaks.

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

 

Kris Statlander w/ Best Friends VS Amber Nova!

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

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

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

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Team Taz.

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

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

 

AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is in the ring!

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

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

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

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

 

AEW has big plans for next week!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 9.4/10

Tag Career on the Line: SoCal Uncensored VS Jay Lyon & Midas Black!

Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian start off Dark by putting their partnership on the line! They’ve been going strong ever since starting this self-challenge, but will the Fallen Angel and Heavy Metal Rebel suddenly fall apart?

The teams sort out, Kaz starts with Midas and they circle. Fans rally up, Kaz and Midas tie up, and Kaz waistlocks to slam Midas down! Kaz facelocks, grinds Midas down, but Midas fights up and around. Kaz hammerlocks Midas to then headlock, but Midas powers out. Kaz runs Midas over, things speed up and Kaz blocks a hip toss to arm-drag then CLOBBER Midas! Kaz stays between Midas and Lyon and he CHOPS Midas down! Kaz CHOPS Midas in the open corner, puts him back in and then bumps him off Daniels’ boot! Tag to Daniels, he stays between Midas and Lyon to gut wrench suplex!

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.2/10
