Will Hobbs VS Sean Legacy!

The Embodiment of Willpower impressed during the Casino Battle Royal, but could not conquer the field! Will he rebound and end the Legacy before it begins?

The bell rings, Hobbs and Legacy circle, and Legacy is pretty big so he wants a test of strength. Hobbs takes him on with that, they knuckle lock but then Legacy kicks low. Legacy headlocks, Hobbs endures and throws body shots, then powers out and runs Legacy over! The crowd fires up as Hobbs grabs Legacy’s arm and forces that knuckle lock! Hobbs wrenches the arm and wrist, then lifts Legacy with one arm! Then he lets Legacy down to run him over with a shoulder! Hobbs looms over Legacy, brings him up and Legacy CHOPS, but Hobbs just grins. Legacy runs, Hobbs follows, but then Legacy dodges and crossbodies, only for Hobbs to knock him out of the air! Legacy bails out, Hobbs pursues, and Hobbs puts Legacy back in the ring.

Hobbs drags Legacy up, suplexes, and holds him there for a count of 5 before dropping him down hard! The crowd fires up for Hobbs as he drags Legacy back up and suplexes him again, hard and fast! Legacy crawls, Hobbs makes sure the cameras are watching as he brings Legacy back up. Another suplex for a gourd buster! Legacy wobbles back up and Hobbs we are seeing his willpower. Hobbs runs into Legacy’s back elbow, but he stays up to catch Legacy and scoop him! Oklahoma Stampede and POWERSLAM! Cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by pinfall

Finally, Hobbs has his first win in AEW! “Don’t test me!” Will Hobbs be the one putting the rest of AEW to the test as he continues to battle on?


Brian Cage VS Tony Donati!

The Machine was another Casino Battle Royal hopeful that fell short, but he is still Team Taz’s FTW World Champion. Will Cage get back in the groove against groovy Tony?

Taz is upset that the FTW Champion isn’t announced as such, but he stays on commentary. The bell rings, Donati rushes Cage but Cage puts him in the corner to enziguri and GERMAN SUPLEX! Donati flops off his neck and shoulders as Cage heads over. Cage drags Donati up, reels him in and OVERHEAD belly2belly suplexes! Donati doesn’t land on his head but Cage picks him up. Cage uses Donati to get some curls in and then TOSSES Donati overhead again! Cage drags Donati up, whips him but Donati kicks back. That only angers Cage, but Donati dodges the clothesline to fire off European Uppercuts! Cage shrugs those off to back kick hard!

Cage stands Donati up, runs but Donati follows to forearm! Cage stays up, Donati throws more forearms. Donati runs into a SUPERKICK! Cage drags Donati back up, suplexes and POWERBOMBS, to then dead lift and BUCKLE BOMB! Cage isn’t done, he drags Donati up into the Gory Especial, WEAPON X!! Cover off the reverse STO, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Cage has more weapons up his sleeve than even Taz realized! Cage keeps on rolling, will he head for another title to add to the FTW belt?


Angelico VS Griff Garrison!

The Hybrid2 wasn’t in the Casino Battle Royal, but that’s not to say neither of them wants to prove they’re great singles wrestlers. Angelico takes on the Ivy League MVP, will Angelico get a grade A win tonight? Or will this be Griff’s graduation into the big time?

The bell rings and Griff circles with Angelico. They tie up, Griff puts Angelico on the ropes but lets up. Angelico circles with Griff again, they tie up again, and Angelico gets the arm to wrench to a wristlock. Griff rolls, wrenches back and also has a wristlock. Angelico spins through, pries free and gets the wrench back on Griff. The crowd cheers this exchange as Griff wrenches, slips around, cravats to a snapmare, but Angelico pops out to get the wristlock back. Angelico steps through, goes around and arm-drags Griff to a corner before lounging on the mat. Griff gets up and shakes out his arms. Angelico is ready as they circle, but Griff steps over and rolls Angelico up, TWO!

Griff dodges Angelico to ROLLING ELBOW! Angelico staggers to a corner, Griff is all over him but the ref backs him off. Griff walks in but Angelico sends him into buckles face first! Angelico stomps Griff, drags him up, and whips him corner to corner hard! Griff bounces off buckles chest first and falls down. Angelico drags Griff as he gasps for air, gets both legs and ties them up on a modified figure four bend. Angelico drags Griff into a partial butterfly stretch at the same time! Griff endures Angelico’s take on the Navarro Dos Mil, the Navarro 2000! Angelico uses the ropes for leverage, the ref sees that and counts, and Angelico stops at 4. Griff gets to the opposite end, Angelico goes after him but Griff fires off body shots.

Griff fights up to his feet to throw forearm after forearm and ROCK Angelico! Griff runs, but Angelico elbows Griff back! Angelico shoves Griff, drop toeholds him and floats around to a modified STF! Griff endures the special crossface, drags himself and Angelico over, and gets the ropebreak! Angelico lets go at 4, but keeps his cool as he stalks Griff to a corner. Angelico kicks Griff, brings him up and whips. Griff reverses and rallies with clotheslines! Griff boots the clothesline of Angelico’s away and BOOTS Angelico down! Angelico is in the corner, Griff goes corner to corner for a BIG splash! Griff whips corner to corner and runs, into a BOOT! Angelico goes up top but Griff anchors him to a torture rack! TOWER HACKER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Angelico survives and Griff can’t believe it! Griff gets up as the crowd rallies up. Griff lifts, Angelico fights out of the atomic drop to trip and hook the legs up again. TWISTING Navarro 14!! Griff taps, Angelico wins!

Winner: Angelico, by submission

Angelico adds on to make sure Griff learns his lesson! Will the Suave South African start heading up the ranks of AEW’s singles division?


Skyler Moore VS Anna Jay!

AEW knows #WeWantMoore and gives us Moore! But will she be ready to take on the #Queenslayer and Star of the Show, The Dark Order’s Ms. 99?

The bell rings and Jay circles with Moore. They tie up and Jay knees low and hard! Jay bumps Moore off buckles, throws big forearm shots then bumps Moore off more buckles. Moore flounders around, Jay brings her up and whips her corner to corner! Moore bounces off buckles and falls to the mat, Jay toys with her. Jay brings her up, but Moore blocks the buckle bump to give a buckle bump! Moore runs, Jay dodges but Moore arm-drags to a cover, TWO! Moore arm-drags and scoops Jay for a SLAM!

Winner: Anna Jay, by submission

The Queenslayer Clutch defeats another, but will Jay get to use that on her true target in Brandi Rhodes again?


Lee Johnson VS Eddie Kingston!

#BigShotty has been having to do what Maxwell Jacob Friedman tells him to lately, but MJF 2020 didn’t work out at All Out like Team MJF was hoping. As for Kingston, he and his “friends” were close to winning but the Murderhawk Monster made sure none of them lasted long. Which man rebounds for their team as AEW approaches its first anniversary?

The bell rings and Kingston circles with Johnson. They tie up, Johnson headlocks but Kingston powers out. Kingston bumps shoulders with Johnson and just laughs it off. He tells Johnston to run, Johnson does and they ram shoulders again. Kingston picks Johnson up with a T-BONE! Johnson is down and Kingston mocks him, “That hurt, huh?” Kingston stomps Johnson, then mocks the crowd clapping. Johnson throws body shots but Kingston boots him down! Kingston brings Johnson up to CHOP him down! Kingston paces, dares Johnson to get up, then kicks him while he’s down. “Is this it?” This must be the bottom of AEW’s barrel from what Kingston can tell.

Kingston brings Johnson up to CHOP him again and again! Johnson gets up every time but wobbles to a corner. Kingston brings Johnson back up, whips him corner to corner hard, but runs into a back elbow! Johnson boots back, then again and ROCKS Kingston with a right! Johnson goes out to springboard missile dropkick! Kingston flounders up, Johnson throws forearms and kicks and an uppercut! Johnson reels Kingston in, for a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO! The crowd rallies for Johnson as he gets up and throws more forearms on Kingston. Johnson runs, but into Kingston’s kitchen sink knee! BACK HAND!! Cover, Kingston wins!

Winner: Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

That could’ve been a knockout, too! Kingston has his first win in AEW in just his second singles match, but will that be the first of many?


Sonny Kiss VS Serpentico!

The Concrete Rose was a house of fire in the Casino Battle Royal but the fire was extinguished. The SNAKEMAN lost to the Bad Boy in the Buy-In, but he doesn’t sweat it. Which man builds momentum for their respective tag teams here tonight?

The bell rings and Serpentico rolls as he circles with Kiss. Kiss avoids Serpentico’s lunge, goes Matrix and then does the splits to dodge more, and arm-drags to a wheelbarrow and another arm-drag! Kiss runs corner to corner to ram into Serpentico. Kiss rolls back, Serpentico fakes Kiss out to do the splits so he can mule KICK Kiss down! Serpentico drops ax handles to cover, TWO!

Serpentico moves, Kiss lands on his feet and goes Matrix to dodge again, but Serpentico DOUBLE STOMPS Kiss down! Serpentico drags Kiss up for a BASEMENT DDT! Cover, TWO!

Winner: Sonny Kiss, by pinfall

The Concrete Rose conquers the SNAKEMAN, scoring one for Jersey’s Finest over Chaos Project! Will things turn into a tag team battle between those partnerships soon enough?


Ricky Starks VS Ben Carter!

The Absolute wasn’t able to win the battle royal, but he did get some revenge on Darby Allin when he and Cage literally put him in a body bag full of thumbtacks! Will Starks get a win against the #Incomparable British prodigy?

The bell rings and Starks circles with Carter as the crowd rallies. Starks blows kisses to Vickie Guerrero and she makes cougar claws. Starks offers a handshake to Carter, Carter takes it, and then Starks DECKS Carter! Starks waistlocks, thrashes Carter around, drops down to roll Carter, but Carter gets back up to switch. Starks sits down, pries at the hold and rolls to get up, half nelson, snapmare and chinlock. Carter pops free fast and wrenches the arm to a wristlock and cranks on it. Starks endures, pie faces Carter then steps through to headlock and takeover. Carter moves around, works his way up, the crowd rallies but Starks wrenches to another wristlock. Carter rolls, handsprings and wrenches back to a shoulder breaker!

Carter hammerlocks, headlocks and spins to get a hammerlock and leap frog. He slides under but Starks kicks low and clubs Carter down. “Not in my house!” Starks CHOPS Carter, whips but Carter reverses. Carter hurdles, drops under and dropkicks Starks down! Starks gets to a corner, kisses Aubrey Edwards’ hand, but Carter runs in to CHOP Starks! Carter whips corner to corner, Starks reverses but Carter goes up and over and handsprings away. Carter comes back but runs into a HUGE back suplex! Starks gets up, strikes a pose and shakes out the cobwebs. Starks kicks Carter while he’s down, stands on his head and pulls on his arm. The ref counts but Starks stomps Carter at 4. Starks gets Carter off the ropes, bumps him off buckles, then grins as Vickie enjoys it.

Starks bumps Carter again just for Vickie, then drags Carter around to bump off more buckles. Carter hits back, CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Starks ROCKS him and kicks him! Starks fires off furious fists to Vickie’s enjoyment, and both her and MJF’s assistant want to see Starks end it. Starks chokes Carter on the ropes, the ref counts and Starks lets up at 4. Starks tells Aubrey he knows the rules, then he mule kicks Carter in the chin! Carter kicks back from the corner, Starks whips Carter and elbows him down hard! Vickie and the Starks fans cheer, but Carter throws forearms and CHOPS back! Carter CHOPS over and over and over in the corner! Carter runs corner to corner, but Starks BOOTS him down!

Carter gets back to a corner, goes back up top, but Starks avoids the PHOENIX SPLASH! Carter flounders up, and Starks SPEARS!! Starks drags Carter up, ROSHAMBO! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

The Incomparable definitely gave The Absolute a great match, but not enough to stop him! Will Starks be the one to bring another belt to Team Taz?

My Thoughts:

More stuff from Dark is a bit of a surprise, but I guess they can’t take a week off without there being major holidays. This was pretty good for a shorter episode, or a shorter one compared to what we’ve gotten lately. It’s great for Hobbs to get his first win, it means he’s moving up from jobber to established AEW guy. Hobbs is really impressive in many ways, he can definitely be a big name for AEW and in wrestling as AEW heads into year two. Angelico and Griff had a good match, and we go to see more of Angelico’s Mexican submission style he’s studied over the years. Obviously Angelico wins, he and Jack Evans are a great tag team and great singles wrestlers as we saw in Lucha Underground.

Anna Jay has a good win over Skyler Moore, but I’m waiting for how Taynara Conti will tie into her story with The Dark Order and Brandi. Still hoping we get Jay & Tay VS Nightmare Sisters inside the Dark Order VS Nightmare Family story. Kiss VS Serpentico was a good match that probably could’ve gone either way, but Serpentico loses to both of Jersey’s Finest this weekend. Makes me think Janela and Kiss beat Serpentico and Luther in a tag match. Kingston whoops Johnson, I’m surprised Wardlow didn’t come out to keep that story going. Maybe MJF losing means the “campaign” is over and Johnson is off the hook. Seems like a shame, really, there was some potential there as making Johnson the third man in the stable.

Team Taz rebounds separately, but also obviously. Cage destroys Donati with his Lucha Underground finisher, so that’s cool. I like the idea that a “signature” can be a finisher on weaker opponents, so Cage can use Weapon X on Dark and Drill Claw on Dynamite. Starks VS Ben Carter was really good and a good main event. I like the character work that Starks is a bit of a flirt because he sees himself as a stud, and that it is returned by some. Starks wins but Carter is another case where, if given a chance through AEW, he can be a big name in wrestling. He’s already got a good indie following like Warhorse, AEW can definitely help bring him up to another level. Taz said himself that his team isn’t done with Darby so maybe Darby seeks payback tomorrow night on Dynamite. Darby still needs a teammate so this isn’t 2v1, just not sure who.

My Score: 8/10

Dralistico is furious that victory was snatched away from him in an instant! But this is why you cannot underestimate El Hijo del Vikingo! Will his AAA Mega reign continue through the summer?


Backstage interview with Team Triple J.

Lexi Nair is with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, as well as Jeff & Karen Jarrett, “and the talk all week has been that you, Sonjay Dutt, and your group will be suspended.” WHAT?! Fined? Suspended? The only ones who should be facing that is AEW itself! They backed Triple J into a corner and they came out swinging like any real fighters would! Lethal feels that there should be consequences for Aubrey Edwards! She’s been against Triple J since the dawn of time! Something needs to be done about her! Jeff adds that there’s been enough talk these past five days. Should the heat go on the promotion? Should the heat go on Briscoe? On Aubrey?

The reality of the fact is, these five people are walking, talking, fire-breathing heat! But wait, here comes Mark Briscoe! He wants everyone to simmer down. There will be no suspensions, he assures us that. Mark talked with Tony Khan, Tony promised them there would be no suspensions. Because if Triple J is suspended, then they can’t be here. Because if they aren’t here, then they can’t get the ass whooping they deserve! Lethal wants Mark to hold on but Mark tells Lethal to shut up! We ain’t talking about Lethal! We’re talking about Jeff and KAREN! What?! “We?” Who is “we?!” AUBREY EDWARDS!!

Triple J cannot believe this. Aubrey wants Karen? Then there’s nothing but air and opportunity between them. So then Aubrey CHOKES Karen!! Karen and Aubrey start scrapping and Triple J, other refs and security rush in to stop this! When and where will Double J & the one true Karen have to face off with the Sussex County Chicken and one pissed off zebra?


NJPW World Television Championship: Zack Sabre Jr. VS Action Andretti!

Speaking of just last night on ROH, the Frontman of TMDK just defended this belt against Rocky Romero to prove a point to “Samoan Joseph” about who is the better, harder working Television Champion. And here he is again as part of this championship edition of Rampage! Will the ZSJ Show continue on into the summer block? Or will NJPW have some #LightsCameraAction?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Action gets his 15 minutes of fame!

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The two circle, fans rally, feel things out, and ZSJ shoots in to waistlock and full nelson. Then he spins Action to a cravat, but Action pries at the hold. ZSJ facelocks now, Action wrenches out of that but ZSJ rolls and slips away. Fans cheer this opening exchange and the two reset. Action shoots in but ZSJ avoids him. They tie up with knuckle locks, ZSJ bridges back and wrenches around to then wrangle Action with a top wristlock. Fans cheer and ZSJ digs a knee into the shoulder. Action rolls, cartwheels, arm-drags, but fans cheer as ZSJ holds onto the wrist!

ZSJ twists the wrist, bends the fingers, drags Action up and wrenches the arm to wrangle him again. Action keeps his shoulders up, fans rally, and Action kips up to wrench and MONKEY FLIP! But ZSJ still holds onto the wrist! Fans rally, ZSJ bends the fingers and he tortures Action’s arm. Action fights up but ZSJ keeps after the fingers. ZSJ flexes but Action stands. Action spins, flips and arm-drags free! Action then CHOPS ZSJ, then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! ZSJ flounders up, Action DROPKICKS him down! Fans fire up as Action runs to IMPLODER TORNILLO! Cover, TWO!

ZSJ is still in this but he goes to a corner. Action runs in, but ZSJ dodges. Action goes up, leaps, and FLYING RANAS! ZSJ bails out, fans fire up and Action builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit into the railing! Fans are fired up with Action and he brings ZSJ back up. Action puts ZSJ in, slingshots, but ZSJ shoves him! Action lands safe but swings into body scissors, which ZSJ makes into a HANGING TRIANGLE! ZSJ did this to Rocky last night! The ref counts, ZSJ lets go at 4 and he drags Action back in, to WRING the arm out! Fans sing “OH~ Zack Sabre Junior~” as he stalks Action. ZSJ sits on the arm, hammerlocks it, and TWISTS!

Action writhes while fans are torn over the savagery. ZSJ gets Action’s leg, steps over to get the arm, and he STOMPS the arm! “OI! TV Tekkers, mates!” ZSJ stalks Action to a corner, brings him up and UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! “This is Awesome!” and ZSJ knuckle locks to wrench Action. Action endures as ZSJ twists the wrist more, and then ZSJ KICKS a leg. Action stays up so ZSJ wrenches and twists the wrist. Action throws body shots and CHOPS! ZSJ jumps on to drag Action down to a DISARMER! Action endures, reaches out, and fans rally. Action kicks around, ZSJ pulls on the arm, but Action gets the ROPEBREAK!

Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, two technical masters go face to face when Lee Moriarty takes on Shibata for the ROH Pure Championship.” Nigel McGuiness says a competitor like Shibata can pick you apart, one body part by another. But Tony Schiavone and Taz say not enough is said about just how talented Moriarty is for such a young wrestler. It looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!

ROH Pure Championship: Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty!

The Wrestler defended this title just last night on ROH against his student, Alex “The Android” Coughlin. But now he faces #TAIGASTYLE, who has come close to snatching this title for his own not too long ago. Will tonight be Moriarty’s night? Or will Shibata make it through this Pure Wrestling Double Header?

The introductions are made, our judges are BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels & Jerry Lynn, and the belt is raised as we see who is truly THE Wrestler!

The bell rings and the clock is ticking on this 60 minute time limit. The two feel things out, Moriarty shoots in but Shibata holds him off with a sprawl. They clinch on the mat, Shibata slips to a waistlock and then a chinlock. Moriarty slips free but Shibata pushes him to a cover, ONE! Shibata wraps Moriarty up with his own arm and then goes for the armbar! Moriarty clasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE! Moriarty falls onto the ROPEBREAK, that is his first of three. Shibata even lets Moriarty know it as they reset. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder, clinch, and Moriarty tries for a leg.

Shibata powers Moriarty down, gets around to a waistlock, and they stand up. Moriarty pries the hold, fans cheer this technical exchange, but then Moriarty elbows free!

Moriarty runs to dropkick the legs out! Fans boo while Moriarty grits his teeth, and then the fans rally up for Shibata as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Moriarty mocks the applause as he stands over Shibata. Moriarty then says they can stop all that, and he grabs a leg to DDT the foot! Moriarty kips up, air guitars, and he ties up Shibata’s legs into a unique crisscross toehold. Then he sits with it for a modified stump puller! Shibata’s shoulders are down, Moriarty is practically stealing Darby Allin’s Last Supper! TWO as Shibata kicks out and Moriarty argues the count. Moriarty drags Shibata around, stomps a leg, then stomps it more and more before another DDT to the foot! Moriarty mocks the clapping from the fans, and then he drags Shibata around for a spinning toehold!

Moriarty pushes the arm back down, TWO as Shibata gets the other arm up! Moriarty pushes that arm down, TWO as Shibata gets both arms up! Moriarty CHOPS Shibata, pushes on the legs, then lets Shibata go. Moriarty gets a leg, hooks it, and ties Shibata up in another cross toehold, only for Shibata to trip him! Shibata gets Moriarty’s legs, steps through, but Moriarty fights the figure four! Shibata powers through to sync it in!

Moriarty endures, reaches out, but his shoulders are down. TWO as Moriarty sits up, Shibata keeps on the pressure, and Moriarty falls back onto his shoulders. TWO as he sits up again! Shibata has the extended leg caught in a heel hook behind his back! Moriarty falls back again, shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up! Moriarty endures, reaches out, claws at the hold, and he pries it open. Shibata works to keep it on tight, Moriarty is down again, TWO! Moriarty sits up, Shibata thrashes around, and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans rally, Moriarty drags Shibata along as he reaches back, but Shibata drags him from the ropes!

Moriarty scrambles and goes to the opposite side, ROPEBREAK! That’s his second, he has one left, and we’ve only just past six minutes! Shibata stomps Moriarty’s bad leg, has him in a corner, and he fires off forearms! The ref counts, Shibata fires again and again, but lets off at 4.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall (still ROH Pure Champion)

Just past nine minutes and Shibata finishes things off, but wait! Daniel Garcia is here! The Dragonslayer is a former ROH Pure Champion, and he’s walking out right to the ring! Garcia steps in, he swaggers up to Shibata, and it is clear this is what’s next for Shibata. Shibata raises the belt to signal his accepting the challenge, will The Wrestler put down this sports… enner-tay-ner?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, though I’m surprised this wasn’t just a Battle of the Belts special. Excalibur said it himself on commentary in the main event, but it was great to start off with the epitome of lucha libre and finish on Strong Style technical wrestling. The AAA Mega Championship was a great opener, and was definitely another instance where I’m grateful we can pause things because they were going fast and furious. Or maybe at Flash speeds, since that’s a Warner Brothers movie they could plug. But as I figured going into this, all the champions retained, since none of these were AEW titles (directly, since ROH is a subsidiary of AEW now).

The NJPW World Television Championship continues to be a great title to watch because of the 15 minute time limit speeding things up. Likewise, ZSJ is always a great wrestler to watch, but so hard to write for cuz he has the biggest collection of named signature moves/holds of any wrestler I’ve seen. I had to double check what he was using to make Action tap, because I keep thinking things are Clarky Cat when they’re not Clarky Cat. ZSJ is setting a very high bar for this title, maybe he retains against Cobb at Dominion or maybe he loses, but it’s going to be hard for the second-ever NJPW World TV Champion to match what ZSJ has done.

Great first title defense for Willow and this title, she and Emi put on a great match. I wonder when Willow has her first defense on NJPW Strong, and who she’ll be facing. And we got a great Pure Championship match to finish, and I’m surprised it was so quick, even compared to the NJPW World TV Championship match. But great win for Shibata, I like that Garcia is stepping up, and that’s going to be an awesome match. I don’t know if they’re going to wait until Death Before Dishonor in July for that match, but knowing AEW and ROH, they can find a way to stretch things out. Especially with Garcia also busy being part of JAS and doing JAS things.

My Score: 8.7/10
