FTR w/ Tully Blanchard VS Jurassic Express!

Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood really riled up the AEW Tag Division as part of their championship celebration last week, but none more so than Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus! Will the quickly rising contenders prove they’re worthy of being number one? Or will they learn to #FearTheRevelation?

But before FTR can make their entrance, the Young Bucks storm out to the ring. Mark Stunt keeps his distance given he was on the receiving end of a superkick from Matt Jackson. Matt and Nick pace about, then DOUBLE SUPERKICK the referee!? As if that total fine of $10,000 wasn’t enough! More referees rush out to check on their colleague while the Bucks leave! “You wanna fine us, Tony.” The Bucks toss a huge wad of Benjamin Franklins at Tony Khan at gorilla! And then they pass by FTR, who mock The Elite falling apart. The Bucks leave without another word, FTR and Tully head to the ring, and somehow this match will happen, just with a different referee than planned.

The teams sort out, Jungle Jack Perry starts against Dax. The fans are fired up as the two circle, JB and Dax tie up and Dax wrenches an arm to a wirstlock. Cash tags in, kicks the arm then wrenches it to a shoulder breaker. Dax tags back in, takes the hand-off and grinds JB to the mat. JB endures the wristlock, handsprings through to reverse.

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, the new AEW Tag Team Champions stay undefeated! Will Cash and Dax be able to skirt the rules and deny more contenders their shots?

 

Something has happened backstage!

Alex Marvez finds Private Party and a medic checking on a downed Matt Hardy! He clutches his leg, but no one saw exactly what happened. Chris Jericho and Jake Hager hurry over and mockingly ask what’s wrong. Hardy’s leg looks like it’s swelling up. Maybe they’ll have to amputate it! Jericho also has Floyd the Bat, too, so clearly this is suspicious. Hager mockingly says to put some ice on that. A lot! See you two kids later! Will Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy avenge Hardy for what the Inner Circle did to him?

 

Kenny Omega joins commentary!

Surely he saw what just happened to Matt Hardy. What are his thoughts on that? Omega hopes Hardy’s leg is okay, and notes the string of bad luck Hardy has had lately. But there’s another reason Omega is on commentary at this very moment, and that’s because the very next match is…

Hangman Page VS Frankie Kazarian!

The Cowboy was one half of only the second-ever AEW Tag Team Champions with Kenny Omega. The Heavy Metal Rebel was one half of the inaugural champions with Scorpio Sky. And these two have a long rivalry dating back to ROH! What happens when these two finally meet 1v1 again?

The bell rings and fans fire up already. Hangman and Kaz tie up, go around on the ropes and into a corner, and it starts to feel like the old days. The ref counts, Hangman lets off and Kaz gives a nod. They circle again, tie up, and Kaz waistlocks to a big slam! Kaz facelocks, holds on as Hangman rolls, and they get up. Hangman powers up but Kaz uses the lift to sunset flip, TWO! Kaz drop toeholds, grabs an arm and then shifts to an inverted cravat. Hangman gets up, throws body shots but Kaz knees away. Kaz flips for a cravat neckbreaker, then gets a headlock. Hangman powers up as Omega gives mixed messages, and Hangman powers out, only to run into a low knee. Kaz runs but into a hard shoulder!

Things speed up, Kaz leaps but Hangman catches him for a scoop slam! Hangman CHOPS and fans already say, “This is Awesome!” Kaz throws haymakers and CHOPS in return, but Hangman CHOPS back! Hangman wrenches, CHOPS Kaz off his feet, and paces about. Hangman drags Kaz up, snap suplexes a bit roughly but Kaz gets to a corner. Hangman goes over, brings Kaz up but Kaz lands on his feet to throw haymakers and CHOPS! Kaz keeps on Hangman with a stiff forearm shot, then ROCKS him with more haymakers. Kaz whips Hangman corner to corner, Hangman puts Kaz on the apron. Hangman runs, triangle lariat! PLANCHA! Fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hangman CHOPS Kaz, Kaz ROCKS him with a haymaker! Hangman CHOPS again, then puts Kaz back in the ring. Kaz throws hands, Hangman ducks but shoulders into a guillotine leg drop! Hangman is stuck, Kaz springboards for an even bigger guillotine leg drop! Kaz catches his breath and drags Hangman up. Kaz whips Hangman corner to corner, runs and grabs Hangman for a Russian Leg Sweep! Kaz takes his time bringing Hangman around, Hangman pushes but Kaz pushes him back. Kaz clubs Hangman, drags him up but Hangman blocks the suplex. Kaz clubs him more, brings him up, but again Hangman blocks. Kaz clubs away on Hangman over and over, PERFECT PLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!

Kaz keeps his cool as Hangman sits up. Kaz brings Hangman back around to a facelock and grinds him to the mat. Hangman endures, fights up and throws body shots. Kaz clubs him back down, cranks on the hold, but Hangman fights back up to throw more body shots. They both club each other, Kaz keeps clubbing Hangman, and AEW returns to single picture. Hangman throws more body shots as the fans rally up and he’s free! Hangman ROCKS Kaz with a right but Kaz give sit back! Hangman forearms, Kaz haymakers, repeat. Hangman gets the edge, catches his breath then runs, but into Kaz’s forearm! Kaz runs, Hangman follows to ROCK him right back! THIS is how it was in ROH!

Hangman runs, both men clothesline but neither fall! They try again, and again, Hangman spins but Kaz gets him for a German Suplex! Hangman lands on his feet?! And spins, but into Kaz’s back kick! Kaz knees and spins, but Hangman dodges to LARIAT! Both men are down but fans are fired up! “This is Awesome!” as Hangman and Kaz slowly rise. Hangman is up first and throws forearms. Kaz wobbles but into more forearms. Kaz comes back but Hangman rocks him again. Hangman whips Kaz, Kaz BOOTS back! Kaz goes up, leaps, but into Hangman’s arms! Hangman hits the FALL AWAY SLAM! Both men are down again, the fans fire up and Hangman kips up! STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Cover, TWO!!

Omega admits he’s impressed that Hangman still has this much. This would be the time to tag out in a tag match, but he has no one to gag. Hangman runs into Kaz’s boot, Kaz elbows him away, then slips out to let Hangman hit buckles. Hangman dodges a clothesline but so does Kaz, Kaz slingshots for the DDT! Cover, TWO!! Hangman survives but Kaz keeps his cool. Kaz drags Hangman up, fans rally but Kaz chicken wings for the turn. Hangman powers out, Kaz spins him again to a backslide. Cover, TWO as they tip over. Hangman gets up, powers out to reverse the hooks, and gets Kaz up and over. Kaz gets around, gets the arms again, UNPRETTIER! Cover, TWO!?! Hangman survives and even Omega is surprised.

Fans duel, “Let’s Go, Hangman!” “S C U!” Kaz drags Hangman up to a dragon sleeper, Hangman drops to a victory roll, TWO, SLIDING LARIAT! Kaz staggers up into Hangman’s pump handle, for a MURPHY’S LAW! Cover, TWO!! Hangman could not finish Kaz with the modified fireman’s driver but the fans are loving “A E DUB!” for this one. Hangman gets Kaz back up, whips him, but Kaz reverses to put Hangman on the apron. SLINGSHOT CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Kaz can’t believe it, but he also has one more trick to try. Kaz drags Hangman up, Hangman resists but Kaz clubs him again. Kaz scoops Hangman for a slam, then springboards, into a SIT OUT POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO!?! “This is Awesome!” and still going as both men are down!

Kaz and Hangman slowly sit up, Hangman gets to the apron. Hangman throws off the elbow pad but Kaz gets under the slingshot. Kaz avoids the moonsault and ROCKS Hangman with that right! Kaz puts Hangman on the apron, Hangman comes back to clothesline Kaz into railing! Hangman puts Kaz in, aims from the apron, but Kaz blocks the boot to ROCK Hangman with a right! Kaz headbutts Hangman, slingshots him but Hangman hotshots him first! Hangman boots Kaz, Kaz back elbows Hangman! Kaz slingshots but Hangman dodges the leg drop, to BUCK SHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Kenny Omega has to admit, that was great. It was fun for Omega on commentary, but seems very dodgy about his chances of being Hangman and him being a team again. Will they even be friends in the future?

 

MJF w/ Wardlow VS ???

Maxwell Jacob Friedman is not AEW World Champion and is no longer without a singles loss, but his ego is not so easily damaged. He makes sure to have the Dynamite Diamond Ring on his finger to get his peers to kiss it. AEW is picture in picture as no one actually wants to. Least of all Shaul Guerrero. She’s wearing a mask for more reasons than just pandemic now. And MJF’s luck doesn’t change just because he walks over to the other side of ringside. HE pie faces Griff Garrison just because he can, then goes to the ring. MJF “hesitates” before posing on the corner, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and MJF’s opponent turns out to be The Captain, Shawn Dean. More surprising than that, MJF offers him a handshake, and honors it cleanly. Until the bell rings and he pokes Dean in the eye! MJF reels Dean into the SALT OF THE EARTH!! Dean TAPS, MJF wins!!

Winner: MJF, by submission

MJF makes Dean suffer before he finally lets go, and MJF “rebounds” with the fastest win in his career! Wardlow tosses Dean out so MJF can celebrate alone in the ring. Wardlow also fetches MJF a mic and MJF speaks. “Pipe down, guys, hold on a second. If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that MJF is a very honest man.” Fans do not agree with that. “NO YOU’RE NOT!” But dishonest Dictator Jon is? Because MJF is pretty sure the guy fans like cheated! Oh you don’t like the truth? That’s because you can’t handle it! MJF should be undefeated AND AEW World Champion!! Fans say “You’re a Loser!” But from here on out, since MJF should be and actually is undefeated, they should refer to him as the “undefeated, undisputed, uncrowned AEW World Champion!”

In fact, Justin Roberts, “you smooth-brained schmuck,” announce that to everyone right now! Justin says it, but not with the passion MJF wants. “You moron! Say it with some gusto! Say it with your chest! Or else, Wardlow’s going to come out there and pay you a visit.” Justin tries again, and gives the proper energy MJF wants. “And as the undefeated, undisputed, uncrowned AEW World Champion, it’s become very clearly taht I’m never going to get a fair shake aorund here.” It is very clear to him that in order to get that, you need to be part of a stable. It’s almost like AEW gets a new faction every single week!

Well in that case, MJF has always fancied himself a lone wolf, but maybe MJF should get a wolf pack. Maybe the lone wolf should be lone no more. But if MJF so decides to pick a group, not pick a group, “leave, come, go stay, it doesn’t matter. Because at the end of the day, I’m still better than you, and you know it.” Will MJF recruit members to his pack? Will anyone even want to follow MJF?

 

Technique by Taz profiles Ricky Starks.

Starks’ speed burst for his Spear drives everything into his opponent’s ribs. Then the Roshambeau, there are the different grips for different opponents. A butterfly underhook is for the lighter wrestlers, and he moves his legs forward to ad to the momentum. There is also the gut wrench for heavier opponents, but the landing is the same: dominant and violent. This is why Absolute is a star player in Team Taz, and will destroy Darby Allin.

 

Eddie Kingston, the Butcher, the Blade & The Lucha Brothers are in the ring!

For whatever reason, Butcher and Blade bail out before Kingston speaks. “Ladies and gentlemen,” which he shrugs since he doesn’t see anyone fitting those descriptions, “I have three points to make.” One: Kingston never lost the Casino Battle Royal! Look up the rules, folks! It shouldn’t be Lance Archer, not Jon Moxley, not some random guy, KINGSTON! Two: He and his friends are family. Not a stable, not a faction, but a family! And when family fights, they usually go out to dinner, have some therapy, all that. But not these five! They’re a family of violence. SO what happens? They get violent! They’re agents of chaos! So Butcher, Blade, please find some victims.

They grab Daniel Garcia, Kevin Blackwood and Griff Garrison from the crowd of wrestlers! They throw Blackwood into the ring for Fenix and Pentagon to DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Kingston is loving this, as Pentagon wheelbarrows Fenix for the ROLLING SPLASH! Griff and Garcia are put in and the mugging continues while Kingston mocks Blackwood’s hair. “Hey, pink shirt! Good night.” Garcia gets a BACK SUPLEX CHOKE SLAM from Butcher and Blade! And lastly, the Ivy League MVP gets a CERO MIEDO FULL DEATH, with Fenix’s DOUBLE STOMPS added on top!! “That was hilarious!” Kingston wants his guys to do a favor: get rid of weird hair and blondie. The ring is cleared and everything is in order, according to Kingston.

Fenix, ready! Pentagon, ready! Butcher and Blade, ready! BUT, the third point Kingston wants to make tonight. Blade, since they are all here together, it’s time to get his house in order. Does he mean… BUNNY?! What happens when this “family” is united in one cause?

 

AEW returns with big news for next week!

With the Dynamite Anniversary fast approaching, and the AEW World Championship match as part of it, Jon Moxley and Lance Archer are going to recruit men for a huge Six Man Tag match! Who will ride with the Death Rider? And who will be too scared to say no to the Murderhawk Monster?

 

Chris Jericho & Jake Hager VS Private Party!

Le Champion and Rock Hard Hager are jumping into an already deep AEW Tag Team Division, and are taking on a team known for high speed and shocking wins! Will Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy not only show what happens when you attack their mentor, Matt Hardy, but show Jericho and Hager that they’re not ready to climb the ranks?

The teams sort out and Quen starts against Hager. They circle, tie up, and Hager shoves Quen hard to a corner. Quen gets up and circles with Hager again, to get a waistlock. Hager elbows out, Hager whips Quen corner to corner, but Quen goes up and over to tag Kassidy! Quen dodges, drop toeholds and Kassidy SLING DOGS! Hager bails out, Kassidy sees Jericho running over and sends him to the apron. Jericho DECKS Kassidy but Quen uses Kassidy for Poetry in Motion! Down goes Jericho! Fans rally for Private Party as they build speed and DOUBLE DIVE! Direct hit onto both Jericho and Hager! Kassidy and Quen fire off on both Hager and Jericho at the railing! Hager pushes Kassidy away and gets back into the ring. Kassidy slingshot sentons down on him! Cover, ONE!

Kassidy keeps on Hager with hammering hands, tags in Quen, and they manage a double suplex on Hager! Cover, TWO! Quen keeps on Hager with a facelock but Hager powers out and BOOTS Quen down! Hager drags Quen to the corner, tags Jericho, and Jericho rains down rights on Quen. The ref counts, Hager gets out at 5 of 10, and Jericho soaks up the heat. Jericho throws haymakers on Quen, CHOPS him at ropes and CHOPS him again. Jericho whips, and he forearms Quen down! Jericho toys with Quen, brings him up and back suplexes Quen down! Cover, TWO!

Jericho fakes injury and the ref is distracted, Hager CLOBBERS Kassidy using Floyd the Baseball Bat! Kassidy goes down in a heap on the apron and Jericho dropkicks him down! Hager gets away with cheap shots as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hager drags Kassidy up to POST him! The ref misses that as Jericho keeps arguing with him, but then Jericho stops to grin and soak up the heat. Jericho goes out to fetch Kassidy, and he scoops to snake eyes Ksasidy on railing! Kassidy flounders while fans jeer Jericho. Jericho drags Kassidy up to put him in the ring, and he taunts Kassidy to crawl for his corner. Jericho drags Kassidy away, tags in Hager, and they stomp Kassidy. Hager drops elbows, drags Kassidy up and whips him to a corner hard! Kassidy hits the mat, Hager sets him up in the drop zone, for the HAGER BOMB! Hager doesn’t cover, he just watches Kassidy gasp for air. Hager and Jericho “clink glasses” before Hager drags Kassidy back up.

Kassidy hits back but Hager ROCKS him with a right! Hager stands on Kassyd’s chest but stops at the ref’s count of 4. Kassidy crawls to the apron, and Hager chokes him with the ropes! Hager lets up at 4 again, but Jericho gets a cheap shot in! Kassidy tries to get up but Hager is on him first. Hager reels Kassidy in for a LARIAT!

Ivelisse is thunderstruck, but Diamante strikes back! She clobbers and kicks Rosa out of the ring and Ivelisse picks up the NWA championship belt. But here comes the AEW Women’s World Champion, Hikaru Shida! Shida attacks Ivelisse and Diamante in return, throwing one into the other! The tag cup winners tumble out of the ring while Shida picks up Rosa’s belt. Shida returns the belt to the proper owner, having respect for the woman who went All Out with her. Will the two singles champions both have targets on their back through this crossover?

 

Kip Sabian, Penelope Ford and Miro are backstage together.

The Superbad Couple spots the Best Man, the Bulgarian Beast, as he bench presses the “big boy plates” today. They don’t just game hard, they work hard! When they get in the ring hard- Did Kip say ring?! Miro wants in the AEW ring to devour someone! No, man, we’ve got something else first. Oh, right, sorry. The Best Man is Kip’s best man, so that means the best bachelor party ever! It’ll be so good! Way better than last week, right? What happens in Verdansk stays in Verdansk. They argue over Call of Duty but it’s fine. The party will be so good. It’ll be Superbad! Kip’s turn on the bench press!

 

AEW returns as Lance Archer heads to the ring!

The Murderhawk Monster mauls El Fuego as he goes ringside! HUGE CHOKE SLAM! Jake the Snake says that’s “a proper ring entrance.” But he also has a question. “Would you trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for a cool breeze? Would you exchange all your pleasure for some pain? After all, aren’t they the same?” Jake thinks so. Archer thinks so. Sometimes in wrestling, or movies or even in politics, you might find yourself in bed with someone you wouldn’t expect. And that’s what they have to do now with the coming Six Man Tag. Archer isn’t happy, but there’s a reason for it. Sometimes you need info, money or a way out. For them, they need partners. If they’re going to lay in bed with the devil, why not the Tasmanian Devil? Taz, please come out.

The leader of Team Taz obliges, much to everyone’s surprise. Taz stands in the ring with Jake and Archer, is handed the mic, and Snake keeps things peaceful. As discussed earlier today, Team Taz is very excited to do business with them. This is all business. And as discussed, the trio of Absolute Ricky Starks, “The Machine” Brian Cage, and the Murderhawk Monster, the #1 contender for the AEW World Championship, is a deadly one. And the last thing, is the deal they made. When Archer destroys Moxley and takes that title, Archer will give Cage that first shot. That’s what everyone wants. Archer wants Taz to understand that he and his boys are simply enemies of Archer’s enemy. That makes them “friendly.”

But come 10/14/20, when Archer puts the punkass Moxley down, AEW will have a killer new champion! And Archer doesn’t care how much whining and crying Eddie Kingston says about the battle royal, the Monster and the Machine are gonna go Godzilla on Daily’s Place! But to respond, here comes Moxley himself! Moxley carries #BigPlatinum at the top of the bleachers, mic in hand, to speak.  Wait, who are these guys attacking!? It’s Starks and Cage!! Taz put the trap in! Security tries to stop them but they get mauled, too! Moxley fights back but that’s 2v1! Jake and Taz like what they see as Team Taz mugs Moxley and throws him through a wood case!

But here comes Will Hoobs with a chair!! He hits Cage and SMASHES him! Starks gets Cage away to safety! The Embodiment of Willpower has run off Cage and Starks! Moxley stands tall with Hobbs and says, “That’s a hell of a team you’ve got assembled there, Jake!” But let him introduce you all to his partners! This is a man who is not afraid of the “punkass hit squad.” Oakland’s Most Violent, RAM POWER, Will Hobbs!! And they have a third partner, as Moxley calls on the services of Taz’s “favorite,” DARBY ALLIN!! Darby is watching at home, but he needs to get back to Jacksonville next week, because they are going to WAR! Will there be anyone standing after this incredible Six Man showdown?

 

AEW has other huge matches for next week’s Wednesday Night Dynamite!

Mr. Brodie Lee will defend his TNT Championship against Freshly Squeezed, Orange Cassidy! Will Sloth Style get serious and finally get some gold? Plus, after what we saw tonight, the AEW and NWA Women’s World Champions will team up against the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup winners! Will Shida and Rosa unite against the unruly Ivelisse and Diamante?

 

Parking Lot Brawl: Best Friends VS Proud ‘n’ Powerful!

The quick victory Chuck Taylor and Trent scored over Santana and Ortiz angered them enough to bust up Miss Sue Baretta’s minivan! There was more back and forth that escalated into backstage attacks, and now it’s come to this! No more talking, only a fight will settle this! Who makes it out of the parking lot still able to drive?

The crowd of wrestlers are on the edges of the circle of cars as Santana and Ortiz walk up looking like ghost face killers. The bell rings, the two teams rush each other and the brawl is on! Santana clubs Chuck while Ortiz throws hands on Trent! Trent hits back, Chuckie T turns things around, and Trent rams Ortiz into a car hood! Chuck brings Santana over to bounce off a truck’s open tailgate, and Trent bounces Ortiz off another car hood! Trent keeps throwing forearm son Ortiz while Chuck and Santana go around to a back wall. Santana CHOPS Chuck, but Chuck bumps Santana of a hatchback! Chuck whips Santana into the side view mirror!

Trent has opened the hood and sticks Ortiz underneath it to SLAM it shut! And again! And again! That can’t be good for the radiator. Chuck climbs up this sedan, to SENTON onto the hood!! Ortiz might be a pancake under there, and then Trent adds a LEAPING SENTON!! Ortiz flops out of the car hood, Best Friends drag Ortiz around, stomping and clubbing him as they go. Chuck empties the truck bed of the spare wood, and the Best Friends set the huge plywood panel across the truck bed like a bridge. Trent throws a 2-by-4 at Ortiz so hard, it bounces back and hits Trent! Is the wood trying to be a third party to the match? Ortiz hits back but Trent throws forearms back. Santana stands back up but Chuck bounces him off a car hood.

Trent and Ortiz brawl, Chuck adds on, but Santana searches under a car’s tire well. He finds the collapsible baton!? When did he put that there?! Santana CLUBS Chuck then SMACKS Trent! Santana has Trent under the truck, for a GUILLOTINE CATAPULT into the tailgate!! Santana grimaces through the blood from his forehead, and Ortiz has a sledgehammer! Ortiz aims at Chuck and chucks the hammer! Chuck avoids the hammer and it smashes a windshield! Chuck kicks Ortiz, BOOTS Santana but Ortiz CHOPS back. Ortiz and Chuck brawl, they go around the way, and Chuck throws Ortiz into trash barrels! Or was that recycling? Chuck drags Ortiz up, bounces him off the car trunk, and climbs up again.

Chuck brings Ortiz up to the trunk roof but Ortiz fights back. Ortiz has Chuck, and snap suplexes onto the car roof! The back window breaks and Ortiz flops off the car! Santana is on top of the truck and FROG SPLASHES onto Chuck! Cover, TWO!! Chuck survives and no one can believe it! “This is Awesome!” but Ortiz literally trashes Chuck with the trash. Trent returns and throws forearms on Ortiz. Trent whips Ortiz into the car hood, sees Santana and kicks him down, then grabs the spare door. Trent sets the door against the car like a ramp, but Ortiz uses the baton to SMACK Trent in the back! Ortiz drags Trent up, lifts, but Trent escapes to ROCK Ortiz back! Trent runs in, to SPEAR Ortiz through the door!! Blood from Ortiz’s elbow and shoulder are clear against the white base paint!

Chuck returns and leans against the car. Santana does the same on the other side as they push the wreckage aside. Santana bounces Chuck off the car hood of this already battered sedan, and then takes the piece of door to SMACK Chuck on the back! And then he clubs Chuck on the back. Santana clubs away with crossface forearms, then bounces him off the hood again. Trent has a piece of door and throws it int Ortiz’s head! Chuck back suplexes Santana onto the car hood! Santana screams in pain as he slides down. Trent brings Ortiz up, uses the tailgate, but Ortiz pushes him away! Ortiz has a paint pan and SMACKS Trent in the head with it!! Chuck kicks Ortiz, whips him int the other sedan!

Chuck wipes the blood from his nose as he brings steel railing into this! He leans it against the silver sedan as a ramp, then brings Ortiz around. Ortiz hits back with body shots and haymakers. Ortiz lines it up, Chuck counters and snap suplexes Ortiz into the railing!! The steel bends as both men are wrecked! Santana basement boots Trent while Chuck rises. Chuck drags Ortiz around while Santana BREAKS a 2-by-4 on Trent! Chuck pushes Ortiz onto the roof of the silver sedan while Trent hits Santana back. Now the SUV’s get involved as Trent punches Santana against one over and over and over! Trent and Chuck regroup and focus on Ortiz. Trent climbs up the sedan but Santana whips Chuck into the passenger door!

Ortiz LOW BLOW UPPERCUTS Trent on the car roof! Ortiz brings Trent up for a POWERBOMB on the car roof! Trent spasms and slides down the front of the car, but Santana and Ortiz aren’t through with him! They drag Trent up, and DOUBLE BOMB him into the windshield!! Trent’s back is littered with glass pieces! Chuck hits back with a baseball bat! It’s not Floyd but perhaps a cousin! Chuck uses it to choke Santana but Ortiz hurries over. Chuck hits Ortiz back! Chuck grabs the other 2-by-4 to SMACK Ortiz, and again! The wood breaks, but Santana back drops Chuck onto the trash barrels! All four men are down, bloodied and bruised, but the crowd is fired up!

PNP regroup and they point at Trent and his bloody back. Ortiz SMACKS Trent with what’s left of the wood! Santana toys with Chuck while Ortiz rains down rights. Another SMACK from the wood! Trent gets up on noodle legs but Ortiz ROCKS him! Santana presses Chuck into another car’s trunk, and says, “This was the biggest mistake you have ever done in your f***ing life!” Santana punches Chuck over and over into the car’s license plate! Chuck can barely cover up! But he refuses to give up! Meanwhile, Ortiz has put Trent on that wood bridge on the truck bed! Santana grabs the baseball bat Chuck found and takes aim. But wait, who is that coming out of the car trunk!? It’s ORANGE CASSIDY!!

Cassidy has his fist wrapped in something, and gives Santana a FULL METAL ORANGE PUNCH! That something was a steel chain!! Cassidy drags Santana up and fireman’s carries him over to the red sedan. He hands Santana off to Chuck for an AWFUL WAFFLE on the hood! Trent turns things around on Ortiz to get him up and around for a CRUNCHIE through the wood!! Cover, Best Friends win!!

Winners: Best Friends, by pinfall

It’s good to have friends, and Freshly Squeezed helps his turn the tide! And they hug! Trent’s mom’s minivan has been avenged, and the NEW van pulls up! Trent gives her mom a hug and Cassidy calls shotgun. The boys get in the back, and Sue gives PNP a middle finger farewell! Does this signal the end of the grudge between them and the Inner Circle?


My Thoughts:

An incredible episode, especially with that ending! I have not seen a lot of Parking Lot Brawls, and there haven’t really been a lot of those, but this was perhaps the most innovative and most brutal one ever. It might be a point of contention that Cassidy helped out at the end, but what a great surprise for him to come out of a car trunk! Best Friends win, and having Sue show up was a great addition to the end there. I almost feel like Blood & Guts is no longer needed for Inner Circle VS Best Friends and friends after this. Maybe things shift to have Inner Circle feud with Private Party, Matt Hardy and Jersey’s Finest, Joey Janela & Sonny Kiss, instead. After all, there’s a lot of suspicion as to who attacked Hardy backstage, and surely Sammy Guevara will be back.

Hager & Jericho VS Private Party was a great match, and though Private Party have been a tag team longer and in the AEW Tag Division longer, obviously the story dictated Jericho and Hager find a way to win. I will still stand by the opinion that Hager and Jericho didn’t need to jump into the tag division when Santana and Ortiz should’ve been the focus all along, but with Best Friends winning, we’d be waiting a bit longer for PNP to head for the tag titles anyway. FTR VS Jurassic Express to open the night was great, and it was very interesting FTR needed to cheat to win. Miro and Kip had a good segment, I wonder if the bachelor party is the go-home to the wedding on the anniversary episode.

Another interesting detail of the opening segment was the Bucks just flat-out attacking a ref and then paying upfront. The original Elite could definitely all be turning some level of Heel here, with Omega only reluctantly giving Hangman compliments and then outright avoiding Hangman after the match. Hangman and Kaz had a great match, Hangman gets a great win for it, and I am really hoping Hangman VS Omega is something that leads to the winner going after a singles title. MJF gets a fast win just to make a point, but I am curious to see who he manages to add to a stable with him and Wardlow. Maybe tensions rise again and Wardlow takes over the faction since he’s the actual muscle.

Rosa VS Ivelisse was a great match, but I also felt the tag match they announced coming when Diamante attacked Rosa and Shida retaliated. That is going to be a great match and could go either way because of how Rosa didn’t look all that thrilled to be saved. I also like the pick-up game Six Man Tag we’re getting next week. It was a great surprise for Team Taz to make a deal with Archer and Jake, but something about it makes sense. Hobbs being one of Moxley’s guys is great! I figured Hobbs would team up with at least Darby Allin, and now it’s happening through this. That match is going to be awesome, and could go either way, but don’t expect Moxley or Archer to take a pin. Win or lose next week, the anniversary show probably adds Team Taz VS Darby & Hobbs to the card.

My Score: 9.3/10

Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker VS Hook & Action Bronson!

The Jericho Appreciation Society decided to poke at the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange might’ve been able to stop Hook, but will they be able to survive New York’s dynamic duo?

And because Hook is bringing Bronson, Bronson’s bringing the bars! The teams sort out and Hook starts against Parker. They circle, Menard distracts Hook and Parker BOOTS him!

The AEW TNT Champion and the ROH World Television Champion have a common enemy in Smart Mark’s stable, and are going to settle this all at once. Are the Premier Athlete & Technical Beast ready for #WARDJOE?

Sterling and his team are already in the ring as AEW returns from commercial. Sterling has a mic to say, “Folks, the last few weeks, a crazed maniac has been trying to powerbomb me! Well I’m gonna tell you this right now: it’s not happening tonight, thanks to my athletes. And we’re gonna make quick work of WaRdJoE~!” But speaking of, here come the championship duo! They storm right to the ring, and the brawl is on! Joe is after Nese, Wardlow is after Woods, the ref rings the bell as Joe dribbles Nese off buckles.

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry!

These two have met plenty of times before in tag team matches, and so they both know the other is an extremely talented individual. Will the Immortal Firebird show Jungle Boy that he’s not ready for that next level? Or can Jack Perry prove to everyone that his Jungle Life is only just beginning?

The bell rings and Fenix somersaults at JB! But JB catches the spring-up into a fireman’s carry! Fenix slips off but JB BOOTS him! JB goes up but Fenix SHORYUKENS! Fenix tucks JB but JB CLUBS away!

Fenix goes out after JB, drags him up, and puts him against the corner. Fenix CHOPS JB and JB sputters as he falls over. Fenix then bumps JB off the apron, and again, and then RAMS him into it! Fenix is obviously after JB’s bad back, but JB CHOPS Fenix in return. And again! Fenix KICKS JB down! Fenix refreshes the ring count to then drag JB up and put him in the ring.

JB puts Fenix in fast, reels him in, but Fenix whips JB away. Fenix dodges the Comebacker this time, Tiger Feint Rewinds, but JB ducks! SUPERKICK from JB, into a PISON-RANA!! JB runs, but into a SOMERSAULT CUTTER!! Both men are down and fans are thunderous! Fenix and JB stir, “This is Awesome!” and far from over. Alex coaches Fenix up and both men get to corners. Fenix and JB stand up, approach each other, and the CHOPS fly again! Then the forearms! Fenix has the edge with forearms and CHOPS on repeat! Double underhooks, TIGER- RANA!! JB covers, TWO!!! Fenix gets up, into another SUPERKICK!

JB sits Fenix up, runs, but Fenix ducks the blindside! Fenix Tiger Feints again, into a SHOTGUN! JB goes out to the apron and he drags Fenix up. But Fenix WRINGS his arm into the apron! Fenix hurries to bring JB back up, vows to end this, but JB shoves Fenix away to DECK him with an elbow! Fenix is dazed and JB grits his teeth.

Fenix gets up and he staggers away while JB slowly sits up, and AEW goes picture in picture again. Fenix drags himself into the ring, JB drags himself towards the ring. JB reaches the bottom rope at 7 of 10 and drags himself in at 8. Fenix crawls his way over as the fans rally up. Fenix and JB stare down from the mat and egg each other on. JB hushes the crowd, to CHOP Fenix! Fenix falls over, but he sits back up. Fenix CHOPS JB back! JB falls backwards, and Fenix sits him up! Fenix eggs JB on, so JB grits his teeth and CHOPS back! Even Alex is stinging from these! Fenix sputters, but he manages to CHOP JB back! JB CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat!

It’s just CHOP after CHOP and the fans are loving this! Then JB and Fenix start throwing haymakers! They run out of steam and flop over! JB drags himself to ropes, Fenix crawls back to a corner. JB’s got a real nasty bruise on his chest but he doesn’t care. JB and Fenix shake hands to show there is respect, and then the forearms start flying again!

Both men are running on fumes but the fans are thunderous. Fenix lines up a shot, runs in and JUMP SOBATS! And then Fenix puts JB up top, tucks him in, but JB turns the buster into a cradle! JB WINS!!!

Winner: Jungle Boy, by pinfall

A HUGE win for Jack Perry here as he pins a highly decorated luchador! But JB shows Fenix his respect with a bow. Fenix sits with JB to shake hands and shows that respect back. Fans cheer the sportsmanship, will we see JB continue to grow his legacy? Wait, is that CHRISTIAN CAGE!? Is Captain Charisma back from his injury already? HE IS! His arm is in a sling, but he also has a mic, going into the SECOND HOUR of Rampage!

 

Rampage Grand Slam Hour Two opens with Christian Cage!

JB is furious that Captain Charisma is even here! But he’s not alone! Here comes LUCHASAURUS! FROM THE CROWD SIDE! JB turns around and attacks, but Luchasaurus shoves him away and HEADBUTTS him down! Christian takes his time walking down the ramp as Luchasaurus picks on what’s left of JB. Luchasaurus torture racks for the EXTINCTION! Christian tells New York, “You always make me smile. You’re loud, you’re obnoxious, but let’s face it, that’s all that you are. So do me a favor, sit down and do nothing like the b*tches that you are, while I conduct my business.”

Christian steps into the ring and looms over JB. “Speaking of b*tches… You jump me like a coward and injure my arm before our match at All Out, and I still beat you and made it look easy. I squashed your ass! Get it through your head: You’re never gonna one-up me, you’re never gonna outsmart me, and you sure as hell will never beat me! This is your final warning, Jungle Boy. You take away my right arm, I introduce you to my Right Hand of Destruction, Luchasaurus!” Fans boo but Christian tells JB to not come back to AEW. Christian only wishes JB’s mom and sister were ringside again, witnessing this for the last time. “END HIS ASS RIGHT NOW, FOR GOOD!”

Luchasaurus drags JB up and hits the CHOKE SLAM!! Christian “kicks dirt” on Jack Perry, is the legend of Jungle Boy over already?

 

AEW shares footage from after last Wednesday’s Dynamite.

The Jericho Appreciation Society was celebrating Chris Jericho winning the ROH World Championship, and Alex Marvez says this is Jericho’s eighth world title. Jericho says it’s not the eighth, it’s the OCHO! “There is no bigger, more honorable man than Chris Jericho here in AEW, and now I am officially the ROH World Champion. And next week in Philadelphia, we’re gonna have the Jericho Appreciation Championship Celebration!” The JAS is fired up for that! Except for Daniel Garcia. Jericho says this will be the biggest part in Philly ever, and Marvez is NOT invited.

Garcia speaks up, wanting to tell Jericho something first. No, don’t worry, Garcia’s a champion, too, it’ll be his celebration, too! That’s not what Garcia wants to talk about. He has something serious to talk with Jericho about. Well, if he wants to get serious, save it for next week. Because for now, the JAS is going out on the town! OCHO! OCHO! OCHO! But just what is it Garcia wants to bring up to The Wizard of Sports Entertainment?

 

Eddie Kingston VS Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Melo!

This one has been sizzling on the back burner and now it’s going to catch fire! The Mad King, in his city, is going to get his grudge match with the Spanish God, will he make good on how long he’s had to wait? Or will having his Brazilian Goddess by his side help Sammy put this one to bed?

Sammy gets the mic first, though, and he says, “Look, Eddie, man to man, from the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I wasn’t man enough to tell you this before. I’m sorry I didn’t say this sooner, you’re a FAT PIECE OF SH*T!” Eddie grabs Sammy by the face! The bell rings as Eddie digs at Sammy’s eyes! Eddie then puts Sammy in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! And CLUB Sammy! Sammy runs away, Eddie RAMS him into steel steps! Then he moves the steps aside! The ref reprimands, but Sammy claws at Eddie now.

Lance Archer, Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Ari Daivari and his Trustbusters, QT Marshall and The Factory, even Brian Cage get involved in the brawling! Bringing up the rear is Dante Martin, Penta El Zero M, and even the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions, Dalton Castle & The Boys! Well, the Tate Twins, so as not to be confused with the superhero series. Oh, even Matt Hardy, Danhausen and Best Friends, Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta, are involved! Castle goes after old ROH rival, Jay Lethal, inside the ring, and almost throws him over the ropes! Best Friends watch where they’re going while the others brawl.

But Moriarty BOOTS Garcia and ELIMINATES him! He talks trash, only for Hardy to DUMP and ELIMINATE Moriarty!

Moriarty and Garcia are now side by side, they’re going to feud over that ROH Pure Championship soon enough. Hardy gloats with “DELETE! DELETE!” but Lethal attacks him from behind as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Rush helps Lethal with Hardy, then Rush helps Blade with Penta. Butcher and Marq Quen mug John Silver, but Archer helps Hardy fire off on Lethal! Uno CHOPS Blade, Rush goes after Penta’s mask!

Rampage Grand Slam returns and Uno whips Kassidy. Quen is there, he helps Kassidy return for the SILLY STRING! The AFO gloat together, and it turns out during the break, they all ELIMINATED Vance! Wait, now Rush and the mercenaries turn on Private Party! This battle royal is meant to be every man for himself, but to think the AFO would implode so soon! Hardy sees his former proteges in trouble, and he goes to help Quen! And he helps Kassidy! Fans cheer Hardy on as he fires off on Butcher! Quen atomic drops Blade and Kassidy ENZIGURIS! Hardy hits a TWIST OF FATE on Blade! Then he throws and ELIMINATES the Blade!

Hardy looks to Quen & Kassidy, the fans fire up, and #HardyParty is reunited! But they get mugged by Rush, Butcher and Lethal! Lethal, Rush and Butcher throw them out and ELIMINATE #HardyParty! Uno ROCKS Lethal, he ROCKS Butcher, and he ROCKS Rush to avenge Vance! Uno BOOTS Butcher but Rush ROCKS Uno! Butcher ROCKS Uno and short arm LARIATS him! Butcher tosses and ELIMINATES Uno! But Hangman DUMPS Butcher out! Butcher lands on the apron, Hangman triangle jump LARIA- NO, Butcher ducks! Hangman reloads quick to triangle jump LARIAT! This one hits, and Hangman ELIMINATES Butcher!

We have just six men left, and they’re Hangman Page, Johnny Hungy, Pentagon, the Murderhawk Monster, and then Rush is fighting off Jay Lethal! Silver flexes but Rush steps up to him. Rush ROCKS Silver, Silver ROCKS Rush and fans fire up! Silver gets the edge, he KICKS away on Rush, but Rush blocks to HEADBUTT and SUPLEX! Silver tumbles up and out, Rush ELIMINATES him!

The Cowboy survives being mugged and comes out the winner of the golden ticket! But will it be Moxley defending the title in his hometown? Or will Maxwell Jacob Friedman screw up that plan with that poker chip?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

First, we will hear from Saraya Knight after her shocking AEW debut last Wednesday!

It will be Moxley VS Juice in an AEW World Title Eliminator! If Juice wins here, he’ll get himself a future world title shot! Will Robinson look to bring AEW gold into the Bullet Club?

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man notes they’re having an unsanctioned Lights Out Match tonight, but then “Powerhouse” Hobbs says it’s about time Ricky showed up! That’s the Starks that fought Darby Allin & Sting. And yet, that’s the Starks that Hobbs beat in four minutes and 35 seconds. Tonight, there won’t be any change. Starks says that’s funny. Starks has been here, he never left. Hobbs beat Starks in just over four minutes, Starks admits to that. But he can also admit that he is better than a four minute match! That was a one time thing, it won’t ever happen again.

Hobbs needs to understand, that was a career highlight for you! The highlight tonight is Starks doing what he has set out to do from the get-go. Starks will close to Book of Hobbs, and he will make sure to put Hobbs down once and for all. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event!

Lights Out: Ricky Starks VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!

As Justin Roberts explains, the lights will turn off and then turn back on, signifying that AEW will NOT be responsible for what happens next. No time limit, no count outs, no disqualifications, no official record of this match on the win-loss records, and NOTHING holding these two back! When they can do absolutely anything they want to each other, just who will be left standing at the end of Grand Slam?

Starks gets a very cinematic entrance. “There is no fire like passion, and no crime like hatred. There’s uncertainty in your lust. You seek revenge, but your passion fuels you to burn brightly, like an inferno.” Starks, bathed in red light, throws things around the room in that anger. “You’ve done that,” the narrator continues, “just to be able to call yourself, ‘Absolute.’ You are absolute, Ricky Starks.” The bell rings and the haymakers start flying! Fans fire up but Hobbs knees low. Hobbs whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Hobbs! Starks rains down hands, Hobbs pushes him away and bails out, only for Starks to pursue!

Hobbs kicks Starks, whips him at a corner, but Starks slides under the bottom rope! Starks swings around the post to CLOBBER Hobbs! Fans fire up with Starks and Hobbs staggers up. Starks RAMS Hobbs into steel steps! Starks kisses the hand of the nice old lady up front, and then he drags Hobbs up. Starks puts Hobbs in, fans rally up, and Starks grins. Starks brings Hobbs up, but Hobbs Alabama Lifts for a REVERSE NECKBREAKER! Hobbs knows Starks’ neck is his weak spot! Hobbs then gets a table and puts it in the ring! Starks staggers to ropes while Hobbs picks the table up, to SLAM it on Ricky’s back! That’s different!

Jericho says Hobbs is also his Sports Entertainer of the Week, and Hobbs fetches chairs from under the ring. Fans rally for Starks while he stirs and Rampage goes picture in picture. Hobbs gets a chair and he JAMS Starks in the head with it! Hobbs grins as he goes looking for more things under the ring, and he brings out… Is that a silver chain? Hobbs storms up to Starks, kicks him down, and he punches Starks with the chain around his hand! Starks sputters and crawls away but Hobbs says he’s gonna hurt Starks! Hobbs sets up the table in a corner now, then fetches Starks. Hobbs brings the straps down before he stands on Starks’ head.

The ref can only check on Starks but Starks refuses to give up. Hobbs goes out to take Justin Roberts’s belt?! Hobbs brings that belt over to LASH Starks! Hobbs says he’s literally gonna whip Starks’ ass, and he LASHES Starks again! Starks hits Hobbs back and takes the belt to LASH Hobbs! And again! And again! Starks keeps after Hobbs as they get back in the ring, but Hobbs pops Starks up for a SPINEBUSTER! But Hobbs doesn’t cover? Well, Hobbs did say he wants to hurt Starks, so he doesn’t want this to end here. Hobbs wedges a chair into a corner, then he goes back for Starks. Hobbs JAMS Starks with another chair! And then SMACKS him with it!

Rampage Grand Slam returns to picture in picture one last time, and Hobbs wedges that other chair into another corner. Starks crawls but Hobbs drags him up. Hobbs scoops Starks, aims for a corner, and he RAMS Starks into the chair!! Hobbs grins as he goes corner to corner, but Starks slips off and RAMS Hobbs into the chair! Starks reels Hobbs in, uses the ropes, TORNADO DDT!! Starks hurries to cover, TWO!! Hobbs survives and Starks is frustrated. Hobbs flounders, Starks gets a chair, but Hobbs LOW BLOWS Starks first! Fans boo as Starks falls over, but Hobbs takes that chair for his own.

Hobbs sits the chair up, and then sits another chair up so that they face each other. Hobbs drags Starks up and brings him over, SKY- NO! Starks slips off and LOW BLOWS Hobbs in return! Starks pushes Hobbs down, and he flips the chairs around to be back to back! Starks drags Hobbs up, poses, but Hobbs resists the lift! Hobbs back drops Starks onto the chairs!! Fans lose their minds as Starks writhes! Hobbs grabs one of the chairs, sets it down, then does the same with all the other chairs. Hobbs scoops Starks for an OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE onto the chairs!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Starks survives and shocks Hobbs!

Starks crawls to the ramp but Hobbs pursues. Starks kicks him low, throws body shots, but Hobbs DECKS Starks! Hobbs stalks Starks some more, but Starks ROCKS Hobbs with a haymaker! Hobbs shrugs it off to DECK Starks again. Hobbs tells the ref to shut up about the ring. Hobbs drags Starks up, but Starks dodges to ROCK Hobbs! And again! Starks staggers but he runs in, only for Hobbs to send the Spear into the tunnel’s frame! Wait, speaking of that frame, Hobbs RIPS an LED light bar off it! Hobbs has it like a steel pipe as he stalks Starks as Starks crawls back down the ramp. Hobbs tells Starks to get his ass up!

They both return to the ring, Hobbs takes aim, but Starks avoids the swing! Starks SPEARS Hobbs through the table!! Fans are thunderous and Starks has a wild look in his eyes! Starks stands up, he keeps Hobbs from picking up the light bar and snatches it away. He CRACKS Hobbs with it! Starks reels Hobbs in, underhooks the arms, lifts Hobbs up, ROSHAMBEAU!!! Cover, Starks wins!!!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

That was an ABSOLUTE battle! An absolute clinic in violence, too! Will Starks be able to finally leave his past behind him and head for a brighter future?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome Rampage! It does help that this was Grand Slam week and they had to make everything on here matter. Well, they almost made everything matter. Jade VS Diamante, for actually building it up in a consistent manner, was really short. And as if Jade wasn’t already Brock Lesnar-ing the women’s division, she uses an F5 to throw Diamante onto the apron. Trina turning on Diamante in the end was also messed up, but whatever. Hook & Bronson VS Menard & Parker was really fun stuff, and Bronson definitely has that pro-wrestler potential. He’s great on the mic, obviously, and he’s one sturdy, stocky guy. Naturally Hook & Bronson win here, who knows what’s next.

Great opener of the entire night from the House of Black VS Darby & Sting. Loved the surprise attack from Darby & Sting, loved the use of the whole ringside area, and what a great surprise that Muta showed up. Didn’t like Julia Hart not going through a table, she overdid the jump. Maybe they should’ve had two tables there, too, like when Sting took his insane bump. But in the end, the Faces winning made sense if it means this feud is ending. As for Buddy & Brody, while they’re both bigger names than Dark and Elevation, I feel like they need to spend time there to buff up their tag team record and get into contention so we can see them feud with the likes of FTR and The Acclaimed.

Very fun but obviously one-sided match from #WardJoe VS Sterling’s stable. Of course Wardlow & Joe won, but I was a little worried that Wardlow taking that tumble and tweaking his knee was part of why this was less a tag match and more just two singles matches happening at the same time. I also think that with Joe having beat Woods and Wardlow having beat Nese, they’ll trade and we’ll get Wardlow beating Woods in a title match while Joe beats Nese in another. We got amazing stuff out of Fenix VS JB, and what a great win for JB. But of course Christian Cage & Luchasaurus ruin the moment and beat JB up. JB is going to continue showing his toughness, and he’ll definitely get his match with Luchasaurus now.

Good promo from the JAS celebrating Jericho’s win and setting up an even bigger celebration for Wednesday. I have a feeling Garcia does want to bring up Jericho cheating again, as it relates to Garcia’s own identity crisis of pro-wrestler VS sports entertainer. And I also think the celebration segment will give Bryan Danielson an opening to challenge Jericho to their tiebreaker, with the ROH World Championship on the line. Hell, Kingston might even show up after how things went against Sammy. Great match, and Kingston wins, only to cost himself because he didn’t show mercy, and it’d be natural to set a rematch for like the Dynamite Anniversary or something.

AEW does a great job with Battle Royals, and they really upped things here. The massive brawl, the seemingly endless number of entries, and all the stories that can now stem from what we saw. #HardyParty reuniting was a great one, and they can now take on LFI/AFO and get into the trios division. For a moment, I thought Rush or some other Heel was going to win, but in the end, Hangman wins to keep him in the world title scene. I suppose that’s fine, but I don’t see Moxley losing the title in Cincinnati only a month after getting the belt back. So then why waste Hangman on that? Unless that’s exactly when MJF will strike, to best stick it to Moxley!

My Score: 8.8/10

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Champion)

“The Antithesis” of ROH is now their world champion! The Wizard has numero ocho and is celebrating with the Jericho Appreciation Society! They’re all so proud of Jericho, except Daniel Garcia. But the JAS reigns over ROH as the World and Pure Champions, will they soon turn the pro-wrestling promotion into a sports entertainment company?

 

AEW takes a closer look at tonight’s main event.

William Regal couldn’t be prouder of the Blackpool Combat Club. Jon Moxley says this tournament of champions has become AEW’s Super Bowl, World Series, all rolled into one. Bryan Danielson notes that he’s only lost to four people since joining AEW: Hangman Page; Jon Moxley; Daniel Garcia; and Chris Jericho. Bryan’s avenged his losses to the Cowboy, the Dragonslayer, and even The Wizard. That leaves just one left. Moxley says he doesn’t want to win, he knows he will win. But when it is BCC VS BCC, who will reign supreme over AEW?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Swerve In Our Glory VS The Acclaimed!

Both teams went all out at All Out, but in the end, this was whose house? Swerve In Our Glory’s house! But that doesn’t mean this is their AEW. Will Max Caster & Anthony Bowens redeem themselves in the rematch? Or will this just be a remix for Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland?

As for Swerve and Keith, they’re both stunned, and Swerve is frustrated. Is the Limitless House going to fold? Or will they regroup and find a way to redeem themselves?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Lexi Nair notes we just witnessed another AEW World Tag Team Championship match between Swerve In Our Glory and The Acclaimed, what are their thoughts? Cash says all four guys killed it, congrats to Caster & Bowens, they deserved this. But FTR have been #1 contenders since back in April, so they are cashing in. They’re asking nicely- Oh, surprise, surprise, it’s Austin & Colten. FTR was “hoping” to see these two. Oh, well, Colten says they should be called “F T R U guys ever gonna stop complaining about being number one contenders?” Austin says it should be “F T Aren’t you guys losing momentum?”

Colten has another one: “F T R U guys ever gonna be on TV again?” Dax says that’s funny because it’s true. He is asking the same questions all the time. Austin asks Colten why Dax is getting angry. Colten isn’t sure. Austin tells the “little guy” to chill. Oh, wait, Colten knows why FTR’s angry. It’s because they’re looking at a more talented, more charismatic, more handsome and younger version of FTR! #TopGuysOut! The Gunn Sons mock the FTR forearm bumps and chest bump, then actually do leave. Yeah, have a good night, guys. But F T Are the Ass Boys going to regret stepping to the TRIPLE BELT CHAMPIONS?

 

Wheeler Yuta is here!

Tony Schiavone is on stage with The Decoder, and Schiavone brings up that the main event is Moxley VS Danielson for the world title. As their teammate and protégé in the BCC, how does Yuta see this going? Yuta says when it comes down to it- It’s MJF! New York is fired up to see Maxwell Jacob Friedman swagger out onto the stage. MJF has Schiavone hold the mic so he can say, “Cut my music, cut my music. Questionable Queens, the Devil has arrived!” Fans cheer for “MJF! MJF!” and he says since they all literally worship the ground that he walks, that makes them all devil worshipers. The fans don’t mind that, apparently.

MJF says hey to Schiavone, “ya fat old prick.” As for “Wheels,” he is clearly confused. Probably because never in Yuta’s wildest dreams would he have gotten a reaction like MJF just did, and he probably never will. Here’s why: It’s not just because Yuta is MID. No, it’s because MJF is a god to New York! They adore and worship him! They’d drink his saliva if they could! There isn’t a single man in this arena who wouldn’t let MJF sleep with their wife, and the only reason he won’t is because he has standards. He’s just being honest! “Because I am a generational talent.” Yuta gets the mic to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, MJF!”

“Max, Max, Max, calm down. What you said has some truth to it. You are a generational talent, that is true. You are also a man with more catchphrases than friends, and you are the king of the low hanging fruit here in AEW. Speaking of which, I think someone got engaged very recently. No, don’t worry, I’m not as low as you, I’m not gonna go there. I’ll just say congratulations, because I met her and she’s a wonderful young lady. She’s smart, too. Maybe a little too smart. Because she might’ve figured out what the rest of us already know: that you are a spineless, worthless piece of human garbage, and she’s gonna walk out on you just like you walked out on all of us!”

MJF says everyone should give it up to Yuta. He has evolved from drying paint to pet rock as a personality. It’s incredible. But the reason MJF is here is to wish Yuta’s buddies good luck in the main event. Y’know, the Blackpool Cuckold Club. MJF wishes them both the best of luck, because what’s happening tonight isn’t that Moxley and Bryan are fighting for the world title. No, they’re really fighting to lose that title to Maxwell Jacob Friedman. But don’t worry, Yuta, you can still go to them for advice. He can go up to Danielson and ask, “Hey, B-Ry, can you teach me how to become injury prone and turn my brain into scrambled eggs?”

And you can’t get advice from Moxley, he’s not all there to begin with. But hey, Yuta can always go up to William Regal and ask, “Hey, Willy, can you teach me how to pop pills?” Yuta POPS MJF!! MJF HEADBUTTS Yuta!! And shoves Schiavone!! MJF blames Schiavone for this, but then he turns around and Yuta TACKLES MJF! Yuta rains down fists, but W. Morrissey shows up to CHOKE Yuta! The Firm is protecting their boss! MJUF CLOBBERS Yuta with the Dynamite Diamond Ring! Security rushes out but Morrissey backs them down. Morrissey escorts MJF out, but will Yuta be the first to strike back?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

Recorded earlier, Schiavone says this Friday, Jade defends the AEW TBS Championship against Diamante, who says she is bringing a friend of her own. That friend is apparently the real Baddest- Jade tells Schiavone to cut the sh*t because we all know Jade is #ThatBitch. And for those wondering, Jade’s going after the AEW Women’s World title on her time. Diamante walks over to tell Jade that trust her, Jade’s gonna wanna know who her friend is. In fact, she’s the OG Baddie. The Baddest Bitch, TRINA. WHAT?! Did Kiera know about this? No! Well, okay. Jade sees Trina and she sees Diamante. But Jade will see them both this Friday on Rampage.

Trina says Jade can see her now. Jade scoffs at that and the Baddies head out. Trina has Diamante’s back, will she be enough to keep the Baddies at bay?

 

AEW All-Atlantic Championship: PAC VS Orange Cassidy!

The Bastard has history with Freshly Squeezed, and they add another chapter here! Will Pac still be the one and only dual champion in AEW? Or will Orange Cassidy get serious and finally get some gold?

Winner: PAC, by pinfall (still AEW All-Atlantic Champion)

He really IS a Bastard! Pac claims it was just a really good punch, but we all know better. If Cassidy forced Pac to resort to this, are Pac’s days as champion numbered? Or does this just mean Pac will do anything to retain the title?

Britt shows off her bloody nose, and she CURB STOMPS Athena down!

Deeb drags Athena up to throw her out and then Hayter taunts fans. Britt gets her glove, but wait! Who is this coming out now? SARAYA?!?! AKA Paige, Saraya Knight has come to AEW!! Britt is stunned and the fans are thunderous! Deeb and Hayter bail out but Britt is like a deer in headlights! Rebel gets Britt outta there, and Saraya blows them all a kiss. Has the AEW Women’s Division solidified its spot as THE division with this addition?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin.

Darby brings out a new body bag and carries it across town, even going on the subway with it. The bag has “BRODY & BUDDY” written on it, and whatever’s inside slumps over. Darby sits it up, then carries it a little bit further. A taxi takes him and the bag as passengers! Darby says, “I’m heading to a funeral, at Arthur Ashe.” The taxi heads out, will the No Disqualification tag match be the last stand for the House of Black?

 

AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions Finals: Jon Moxley VS Bryan Danielson!

What a wild summer for the world title. CM Punk wins it off Hangman Adam Page, but has to be away with an injury. The Maniac defends the “interim” title through to All Out, where CM Punk wins it back, getting injured again in the process. There’s also something about #BrawlOut #Scrumgate #AceSteelBites but point being, we needed a NEW world champion. Moxley denied the Spanish God while the American Dragon fought through the Cowboy AND the Wizard, and now they meet as the friendly rivals they are. Will Moxley get this belt back again? Or will Bryan win back a loss while also getting the gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and one way or another, the BCC will reign on high!

But wait, watching from a VIP skybox, with his Casino Ladder Match poker chip, is the joker, the devil of AEW, Maxwell Jacob Friedman. The bell rings and fans are thunderous already. They circle, feel things out, and then tie up. They go around, Moxley headlocks for the takeover but Bryan headscissors. Mox kips free, Bryan CHOPS so Moxley CHOPS back! Bryan picks the ankle, gets the headlock but Moxley headscissors. Bryan kips free and CHOPS! Moxley CHOPS back! Bryan picks the ankle again, but has a toehold and turns it into a Deathlock. Bryan turns Moxley, CLUBS and crossface forearms Moxley, but Moxley guards his arms.

Bryan reaches, Moxley keylocks in return, but Bryan shifts to facelock. Moxley RAMS Bryan into a corner, the ref counts, and Moxley lets off, to CHOP! Bryan CHOPS back! Moxley eggs him on so Bryan CHOPS again! Moxley CHOPS, Bryan HEADBUTTS! Bryan bumps Moxley off buckles and CHOPS again! And KICKS! And CHOPS! And KICKS! The ref counts, Bryan whips corner to corner and runs in to DROPKICK! Moxley stays up but Bryan SLAPS him! Bryan SLAPS Moxley to egg him on and Moxley glares at Bryan. Bryan CHOPS but Moxley eggs Bryan on. Bryan CHOPS, Moxley stomps away in the corner!

Moxley rains down forearms but the ref backs him off. Moxley has to remember, no Champion’s Advantage in a vacated title match. Moxley whips Bryan but Bryan reverses. Bryan runs in to DROPKICK again! Moxley wobbles but Bryan CHOPS him! Moxley staggers away, Bryan KICKS him in the corner. Moxley staggers again, Bryan CHOPS him! And KICKS him! And CHOPS! And KICKS! Moxley staggers to another corner but Bryan just CHOPS him again! And KICKS! Moxley falls to his knees but Bryan whips him to ropes for a kitchen sink KNEE! And then a KICK in the back! Moxley grits his teeth but Bryan KICKS him again!

Bryan KICKS Moxley into the corner but Moxley huffs and puffs. Bryan EuroUppers, then EuroUppers, then EuroUppers again! MJF seems bored watching, maybe he’s just impatient. Bryan goes to the far corner and he runs back in, but Moxley dodges! The dropkick hits buckles! Now Moxley KICKS Bryan! And KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! Moxley eggs Bryan on, then gets his legs to DOUBLE STOMP his stomach! Moxley stands Bryan up, scoops and SLAMS him, then KICKS him again! Bryan gets up to EuroUpper Moxley, so Moxley EuroUppers back. Bryan bumps Moxley off buckles, and CHOPS! And KICKS! And CHOPS, KICKS, repeat!

Fans fire up with every CHOP and KICK, then Bryan hoists Moxley up top. But Moxley shoves Bryan away! Bryan comes back to DROPKICK Moxley down! Moxley tumbles to apron then floor, and now MJF is amused. Bryan hits a FLYING KNEE from the apron! Fans fire up with the American Dragon and MJF golf claps. Bryan drags Moxley up and into the ring. Bryan goes up top, and he MISSILE DROPKICKS! Fans fire up and Bryan has Moxley on the apron. Bryan wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER, then another! And another! Moxley turns that into a SLEEPER! The ref counts, they’re in the ropes! But Bryan goes to the apron for a GERMAN SUPLEX!

MJF is almost laughing as Moxley flops to the floor. AEW goes picture in picture and MJF applauds for real this time. Bryan smirks and he fetches Moxley while soaking up the cheers and jeers. MJF is checking his phone? Is he at least texting someone about this match? Bryan wrenches and hammerlocks Moxley’s arm before he POSTS it! Bryan then drags Moxley up to wrench again, and POST him again! Bryan refreshes the ring count before he soaks up more cheers and jeers. MJF is talking on the phone now, maybe he’s telling someone about this match. Bryan wrenches Moxley’s arm again to hit another ELBOW BREAKER!

Bryan CHOPS Moxley, CHOPS him again, and Moxley falls over! Bryan drags Moxley up and into the ring, drags him by the arm, and he wrenches that arm to a top wristlock! Moxley endures and resists, even as Bryan pushes him back. Bryan isolates the arm to STOMP it! Bryan then isolates the arm again to STOMP it again! Bryan brings Moxley up and wrenches again. Bryan WRINGS Moxley out, and now MJF is bored again. For someone who uses a cerebral and technical style, it seems MJF prefers watching hard hitting matches. Bryan gets Moxley’s legs, hooks those up, then grabs Moxley’s arms.

Moxley knows Bryan wants the Romero Special so he resists Bryan going for the arms. Bryan STOMPS the knees instead! And again! Bryan then gets an arm and drops a knee on it! Dynamite Grand Slam is single picture again, though we still get side by side of MJF rolling his eyes as Bryan hammerlocks the arm. Bryan fishhooks Moxley’s face, lets off as the ref counts 4, because “I’ve got five!” Moxley endures but Bryan drags Moxley up. Moxley ROCKS Bryan, but Bryan fires off KICKS! Moxley forearms, Bryan kicks, but Moxley gets the edge! Moxley ROLLING- NO, Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges, BUSAIKU KNEE! Cover, TWO!

Bryan drags Moxley up, and hits a SNAP HALF HATCH! Fans fire up as Bryan climbs! Moxley stands, Bryan MISSILE DROPKICKS, but Moxley SPINEBUSTERS Bryan down! And then gets the HALF CRAB! Bryan endures now as Moxley sits back on the leg! Bryan refuses to give up so Moxley shifts to an ANKLE LOCK! Moxley leans on the hold but Bryan still endures! Bryan fights up, Moxley reels him in, modified LEG CAPTURE HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up while both men are down! Bryan gets to ropes and Moxley pushes up off the mat.

Moxley hoists Bryan up top, climbs up after him, and he CLAWS Bryan’s back! Moxley then uses a Half Hatch, but Bryan resists! Moxley HEADBUTTS away on Bryan, then goes back for the facelock.

MJF has to applaud again, he’s loving this. Moxley crawls over to Bryan and drags him back up. Fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but this has to end somehow. Bryan and Moxley knuckle lock, and they throw point blank elbows! They go back and forth, Bryan monkey flips and sits back, ONE! He has the arms, and fires off DRAGON STOMPS!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (NEW AEW World Champion)

Moxley becomes the first-ever THREE-TIME AEW World Champion! William Regal joins Moxley in the ring to adorn him with the belt. MJF smirks, but then Bryan snatches the belt?! Is there dissention in the ranks of the BCC? Thanks to House of the American Dragon, we see that Bryan simply wanted to be the one to personally put the belt on Moxley. They even hug it out! The BCC is stronger than ever, and Regal accompanies Bryan away. As for Moxley, thanks to Elite POV, we see Moxley addresses the crowd.

“Let me tell you this. I am now once again the AEW World Champion. It is among one of the best things that I will ever do, but it is not even near the top of the list. This championship doesn’t define me. Being a good man, being a good father, being the kind of man people can look up to, that is what defines me.” Fans cheer, and Moxley continues. “But when it comes down to the best wrestling promotion on this planet, blood, sweat, tears, passion… I know this belt doesn’t define me, but I define this belt!” Fans love the sound of that, but then Tony Khan comes out to address the crowd!

Via Jason Solomon, AKA Solomonster, Tony Khan says “At this year’s first Tuesday Night Dynamite, October 18th, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the winner of the Grand Slam Golden Ticket Battle Royal will get a shot at the first-ever three-time AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley. If he is still the champion on that Tuesday.” A big move with an ominous disclaimer. Will we see Moxley defend the title in his hometown? Who will win big on Rampage Grand Slam to take on whoever is champion?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, all these title matches and even championship related promos, Grand Slam is off to a great start. The Ass Boys are gonna get squashed by FTR, though, right? There’s no way Austin & Colten can beat the joint ROH, IWGP & AAA Tag Team Champions. And as I said last week, Diamante may have back-up now, but unless she has two people watching her back, she’s going to lose to Jade because Jade has both Kiera and Leila, and is just physically imposing to begin with. Unless… They did reference the real-life relationship of Kiera and Diamante, maybe Kiera swerves Jade to help Diamante win?

Speaking of some swerves, the ROH World Championship was an awesome opener, but I’m really surprised that Jericho won. Cheating or not, I didn’t think Claudio was going to lose this belt so soon. At the same time, this is feeding into the larger Daniel Garcia identity crisis story. Maybe Daniel Garcia’s turn comes with him challenging Jericho to the ROH World Championship, and at least teasing becoming a dual champion. The AEW World Tag title match was also awesome, fans in NYC love The Acclaimed just as much as fans in Chicago, and I think hearing that reaction at All Out made Tony Khan realize it’s time. The Acclaimed get the belts so we can have fresh starts for them as champions and for the story of dysfunction between Keith and Swerve.

Pac VS Cassidy was another great match, and I suppose it’s fitting that The Bastard cheats to stay a double champion. I guess Ethan Page can still face Pac, even though I thought the whole point was Ethan is getting rid of the jokester characters. Maybe Cassidy will be given a second chance, but he must beat Ethan Page first. That will be a great match, and no matter who wins, they will have an awesome match with Pac, perhaps saved for the Dynamite Anniversary or Full Gear. Great Fatal 4 Way for the AEW Women’s title, and that was rough for Britt to get her nose busted again. Hopefully it isn’t as bad as last time, because with PAIGE/SARAYA arriving, we could get a great Six Woman Tag as part of Saraya getting back in the ring.

I will say, though, I was hoping we were going to get more out of Hayter and Britt being at odds. But AEW still can’t quite get their women’s division proper TV time, and this is just another big name on top of an already stacked list. We can only hope Saraya’s signing with AEW is a sign that they’re going to work out the bugs and get the women’s division sorted out. We got a good vignette from Darby Allin, though I think his other ones have been better. Great interaction from MJF and Yuta, and Morrissey being MJF’s muscle now, I bet we get Morrissey VS Yuta before we ever get Yuta VS MJF. MJF watching the main event was a nice touch. He wasn’t in position to “cash in” a la WWE’s MITB, but he made his presence known.

Moxley VS Bryan was awesome, it was almost PPV levels, and while I personally felt like they could’ve surprised us again here by having Bryan win, I knew that with how MJF called out Moxley, it was going to be Mox VS MJF. Jericho having the ROH World title could even be to set up his tiebreaker with Bryan, the title on the line. Bryan could win that to bring that title back to BCC and also help lead the way into the inevitable ROH return to TV. As for Moxley and the world title, great to know exactly when the “Golden Ticket” winner gets their shot, and it also helps us know that oh yeah, regular sports will get in the way of Wednesday Night Dynamite so we’ll have at least one Tuesday Night War of NXT VS AEW.

My Score: 8.8/10
