That was definitely #GameOver! That was a powerful debut for the Best Man, will he pile up even more accolades now that he is All Elite?

 

Eddie Kingston storms right out to the ring!

No time for his own music, “leave the hard cam on!” Kingston is talking to the people at home and “all you morons here.” Kingston says that “If you don’t like social media and you don’t check it, it’s me and Moxley tonight, for THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!” Kingston was never eliminated from the Casino Battle Royal, so that is why he is getting this shot! And y’know what else? EIGHTEEN YEARS says he deserves this! Kingston and Moxley used to be cut from the same cloth. But then Moxley “sold out,” went to the Land of Sports Entertainment, but Kingston never did! Kingston stayed with the fighters, the outlaws and “didn’t sell my soul tot he devil.” So before having the match tonight and Kingston puts Moxley down to take the title, Kingston wants to look into “the entertainer’s eyes.” Where is he?!

Moxley storms out from the crowd and heads right for the ring! The Maniac gets in Kingston’s face but referees and officials hurry to keep the fight from happening already. Will the Mad King take his throne? Or will Moxley prove he’s still that guy Kingston knew?

 

AEW returns and Kenny Omega joins commentary!

Once again, The Cleaner chooses interesting timing on when he joins Excalibur, Tony Schiavone and good ol’ Jim Ross at the desk. He could’ve been in the ring alongside Hangman Page, but chose not to. Therefore, we get this 1v1 match!

Hangman Page VS Evil Uno w/ The Dark Order!

The Cowboy resisted the sales pitches of The Dark Order all last year, but now is confronted directly! Hangman won without Omega last week, can he do it again?

Omega talks over the introductions for Hangman. Is that a mistake or on purpose? The bell rings and Hangman circles with Uno as the fans rally up. Uno and Hangman tie up, Hangman puts Uno in a corner but Uno turns things around. Uno lets go clean and holds up the hand, “We Are One!” Hangman comes back, circles with Uno and ties up again. Uno wrenches to a wristlock, wrenches more, but Hangman rolls, spins and headlocks. Uno powers out but Hangman bumps shoulders. Uno comes back to run Hangman over! Uno blows a kiss to Hangman then runs but has to roll over Hangman. Hangman handsprings and BOOTS Uno down! The fans fire up and Hangman CHOPS Uno in the corner!

Hangman follows Uno and CHOPS him in the other corner! Hangman snap suplexes Uno then covers, ONE! Hangman keeps his cool, drags Uno up and clubs him on the back. Uno gets to a corner, Hangman runs in but Uno elbows him away. Uno runs but Hangman spins and fireman’s carries for a toss! Hangman fires the fans up and pump handle dead lifts for a FALL AWAY! Bridging cover, TWO! Uno escapes but Hangman keeps his cool. Hangman brings Uno up, Uno CHOPS! Hangman CHOPS back, Uno reels Hangman in for a back suplex! Uno and Hangman go to opposite corners, Uno hurries after Hangman and stomps away.

The ref counts, Uno stops at 4, then goes corner to corner, only to be put on the apron. Hangman TRIANGLE LARIATS Uno down! And then PLANCHAS! Direct hit and even Omega has to admit that was good. The Dark Order is disappointed and upset as Hangman puts Uno back in the ring. The fans chant for “Cowboy Stuff!” and Uno is in a corner. Hangman hurries over but Uno uses the ref as a shield! The ref reprimands Uno, Hangman moves the ref aside and dodges the sucker punch, but Uno blocks the kick to hand it to the ref! Uno gets Hangman for a neckbreaker! Uno “apologizes” as he lounges on the corner. Hangman crawls to a corner and Uno heads over as AEW goes picture in picture.

Uno whips Hangman corner to corner then runs in for a big clothesline! Uno lets Hangman sit down as he walks away. Uno takes a bow as the Dark Order applauds. Uno goes back to Hangman to dig his boot in and choke Hangman! The ref counts, Uno lets up, but Hangman hits back. Hangman throws forearms but Uno throat chops! Uno reels Hangman in for a backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Uno brings Hangman up and throws him out of the ring, then takes his time going out after him. Hangman throws body shots and gets up on the apron. Hangman fires up and MOONSAULTS to take Uno down! Hangman points to the corner and fans seem to like that. He climbs back up, but Uno gets in the ring to shove him down! Hangman hits railing and falls in a heap!

Uno laughs at Hangman, or at least it seems like he does. Uno leaves Hangman down and out while AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Hangman CHOPS and forearms Uno! Hangman runs, Uno follows and elbows him at the ropes! Hangman flops out of the ring and the Numbers creep in closer. Omega may  not want to be tag partners with Hangman, but he doesn’t like where this is going. Uno doesn’t let it go anywhere and goes to the ramp. Uno tells the Numbers to let him handle this, but Hangman gets away. Hangman goes around the way, Uno assures Cabana things will be fine, so Cabana and the others go to the back. Uno pursues Hangman and has him on the apron. Uno runs into an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Maybe Uno spoke too soon.

The fans rally up for Hangman as he gets up to the top rope. Uno rises, Hangman leaps but Uno ducks! Uno runs, Hangman ducks and FALL AWAY SLAMS! To a kip up and RUNNING SHOOTING STAR! Cover, TWO! Hangman grits his teeth as Uno crawls to a corner. The fans cheer for more “Cowboy Stuff!” as Hangman runs corner to corner for the clothesline! And then again for another clotheslines! Hangman runs corner to corner again, but gets a BOOT! Uno goes up top fast and leaps, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Hangman survives and Omega is surprised! Uno throws a bit of a tantrum but the fans rally up for Hangman.

Uno drags Hangman back up, reels him in but Hangman shoves him away. Uno LARIATS but Hangman stays up! Uno runs, into a LARIAT from Hangman! Both men stay up, Uno JABS Hangman then runs, Hangman follows and LARIATS Uno down! Fans fire up, Hangman aims and STANDING SHOOTING STARS onto knees! Cover, TWO! Uno hooks Hangman up, but Hangman slips out and swings. Uno dodges, kicks, but Hangman gives the kick to the ref! The ref spins Uno around, Hangman ROCKS Uno with forearms and the ROLLING ELBOW! Hangman whips and pops Uno up for the BOMB! High stack, TWO!!

Hangman keeps his focus as he goes to the apron. Uno stirs, Hangman throws off the armband and slingshots, for the BUCK SHOT! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Omega is pleasantly surprised. The Cowboy is on a hot streak, is he going to leave Omega behind in the rankings at this rate? Or is Omega just waiting for the right opponent?

 

AEW goes backstage to Tony Schiavone and the Young Bucks.

Schiavone waits outside the dressing room because Matt and Nick Jackson said they wanted to talk. Schiavone knocks on the door, Matt opens the door up fast and Schiavone flinches. Matt noticed that and tells Nick that he can handle this. Matt is glad Schiavone accepted the invitation. Matt knows fans have been watching the Bucks acting strange, out of character, and frankly, out of line. They should not have hit Alex whatever or the short referee, Mike Poser. Posey, but sure. Matt feels bad, and says the Bucks will be better about this stuff. But the fans surely understand. The Bucks have been through a lot, they’ve lost a lot, from title opportunities to friends. Either way, the Bucks will be better.

Schiavone gets that, and wants to get to the reason for all of this: FTR. Yeah, right to the hardball questions. How about another question? Then, FTR wins the titles at All Out, they defeat Omega and Hangman with the Bucks watching on the outside. How did that feel? Did FTR put Schiavone up to this? Is Schiavone ribbing Matt? No, not at all. It feels like one of those. Does Schiavone have his phone? Yes, but- Matt wants the phone. Schiavone hands it over and Matt SMASHES the phone against the wall! Oh, sorry, Tony, it broke. Matt keeps smashing it! Why!? What’s wrong? It’s his phone. Oh sorry, here’s some money for an upgrade. Matt goes back into the dressing room. Schiavone says this should be a new chapter for the Bucks’ biography: ruining their reputation.

 

AEW TNT Championship: Brodie Lee w/ The Dark Order VS Orange Cassidy!

Freshly Squeezed dunked Le Champion in mimosa and now has a title shot! Will Sloth Style get serious and take the fight to the Exalted One? Or will Mr. Brodie show his followers how it’s done?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Cassidy takes off his denim jacket. John Silver snatches that to throw it down on the ground and stomp on it! Fans boo but Silver double guns at them. Cassidy just drops his shirt on Silver’s head. Fans laugh at Silver as he stomps the shirt in anger. Silver is given the TNT Championship to hold onto while Anna Jay hops up on the apron to talk trash at Cassidy. Cassidy puts her sunglasses on her and walks away. Brodie storms over, takes the glasses off Anna and has her join the others. Brodie drops the sunglasses at Cassidy’s feet. The bell rings and Cassidy’s first title shot also being Brodie’s first title defense finally begins!

Cassidy takes his time putting on his armband, raises his hands up, and puts them in his pockets. He unleashes the “brutal” shin kicks! Brodie stomps Cassidy’s foot and ROCKS him with an uppercut! Brodie throws the sunglasses away then clubs Cassidy on the back! Brodie stomps Cassidy, paces about and soaks up the heat. Fans rally for Cassidy as Cassidy gets up and staggers. Cassidy dodges, dropkicks Brodie out of the ring, and Brodie regroups with the Dark Order. But Cassidy builds speed and DIVES! The Numbers catch Cassidy and set him up for Brodie’s DIVE! Direct hit wipes everyone out! Silver still manages to applaud while Brodie absorbs the heat from the fans.

Brodie brings Cassidy up, puts him against barriers and CHOPS him down! The ring count climbs to 5, Brodie brings Cassidy around to put in at 7. Brodie stalks Cassidy and drops an elbow! Cover, ONE! Brodie argues with the ref but the ref insists it was just one. Brodie drags Cassidy up, CHOPS him, and Cassidy falls back down. Brodie kicks Cassidy out and lets the Numbers mug Cassidy for him! The ref doesn’t see this and Brodie goes out to fetch Cassidy. Brodie puts Cassidy in, fans chant, “Brodie Sucks!” but Brodie slingshots for a senton! Cover, TWO! Brodie grits his teeth, drags Cassidy up and throws him back out. Brodie hears the fans boo but the ref keeps his eyes on The Numbers. They wait until the ref looks away to stomp Cassidy more!

Brodie goes out and shoves Silver away! Brodie tells Silver to hold the belt. Silver does as told and Brodie puts Cassidy in. Brodie drags Cassidy up, whips him but Cassidy ducks and tilt-o-whirls, but Brodie powers out of the DDT for the SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Cassidy survives and this match has already lasted longer than Brodie’s match with Cody. The fans rally up for Cassidy as AEW goes picture in picture.

Brodie sits Cassidy up, traps an arm and puts on a chinlock. Cassidy endures as Brodie grinds him down. Brodie lets Cassidy go to p ace about. Brodie drags Cassidy up, puts him in a corner and CHOPS him! Cassidy flops over but Brodie tells Silver to show off the belt for him. Silver does, but for too long, and Brodie shoves him off the apron! Brodie runs to drop an elbow on Cassidy! Then he clamps on another chinlock. Cassidy endures, flails, but Brodie just leans on him. Cassidy gets up, pops out but Brodie facelocks. Cassidy throws body shots, Brodie shoves and BOOTS Cassidy down! Brodie stares into the souls of the fans as he grins.

Brodie tells Silver to give the belt to someone more capable in the group, and then he goes back to Cassidy. Brodie drags Cassidy up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Cassidy bounces off buckles to hit the mat. Brodie flexes then brings down the straps. Brodie drags Cassidy up, ROCKS him with an uppercut, then ROCKS him again! Cassidy flops against ropes but Brodie has him for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! AEW returns to single picture as Cassidy gasps for air on the apron and Silver mocks his pain. Brodie drags Cassidy up for a HALF ‘N’ HALF! Cassidy is like a ragdoll but fans still rally up for him. Brodie stalks over to Cassidy, hauls him up for ANOTHER HALF ‘N’ HALF!

Brodie looms over Cassidy, hauls him back up, and lets him flop down. Cassidy sits up but refuses to stop here. Brodie stands him up and spins, but Cassidy sits down again. Brodie sighs and drags Cassidy back up. Fans rally, Brodie spins and again Cassidy sits down! Brodie is getting frustrated, but Cassidy ducks the boot to roll Brodie up! TWO, and Cassidy shoves Brodie into buckles! Brodie comes back but gets more buckles! Cassidy tries to Alabama but Brodie lifts Cassidy instead. Cassidy slips out the back, baits Brodie and sends him out. Cassidy runs and DIVES again! Brodie is sent into railing but Cassidy keeps moving! Another DIVE! Brodie again crashes into railing!

Cassidy puts Brodie in, dodges Silver and ORANGE PUNCHES Alan Angels! Number 5 goes down but Number 10, Preston Vance, grabs Cassidy. Silver runs back in but Cassidy evades, Vance takes the BELT SHOT! Cassidy gets in the ring, Brodie swings but Cassidy dodges to tilt-o-whirl, but still no DDT! Brodie tries to toss Cassidy but he holds on for a STUNNER! Cassidy hurries up top, Brodie stands, Cassidy hits the FLYING DDT!! Brodie and Cassidy are down but the fans are fired up! Cassidy kips up and gets serious! Cassidy runs to PENALTY KICK! Brodie is in a daze, Cassidy goes again, ANOTHER PENALTY KICK! But Brodie gets up!? Brodie swings, Cassidy dodges, tilt-o-whirl DDT!

Brodie wobbles, Cassidy ALABAMA LIFTS, for the AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO!?! Brodie survives and Cassidy can’t believe it! The Dark Order is panicking as Cassidy gets back up. Brodie is in the corner, Cassidy takes off the armband and runs corner to corner, but Silver gets in! Silver is the sacrificial pawn for the ORANGE PUNCH! Brodie spins, Cassidy dodges and runs, into a POWERBOMB! DISCUS LARIAT!! Cover, Brodie wins!

Winner: Brodie Lee, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Exalted One uses the Numbers to his advantage and keeps the title! But the lights go out?! And a familiar operatic singing plays! “Wrestling has more than one royal family.” Could it be?! From center stage and with a lot of pyro, it’s CODY RHODES!! Cody is back, natural dark hair back, and he throws Silver aside! And then fires off on Angels! Vance gets in, Cody CLOBBERS him! Angels gets up, Cody elbows him away and springboards for the NIGHTMARE CUTTER! Cody drags Angels to a corner and SLAMS the leg into the post!

Cody drags Angels back into the ring for a FIGURE FOUR! Angels taps but it doesn’t matter! Cody tortures Angels in Brodie’s place! Cody finally lets go, but he is not done with The Dark Order! Will they be living a nightmare now that Cody is back in black?

 

AEW returns with Dasha and the Dark Order.

But before Dasha can even ask a question, Anna Jay snatches the mic away! She gets Dasha out of the way before handing the mic to Brodie. “You’ve GOT to be kidding me!!” The AUDACITY of that man, Cody, to return like this! Cody was gone for five weeks while Brodie was “doing the work of being undeniable!” Cody, how dare you! What kind of man sends another to do his work!? Did you not see what Brodie did to Dustin Rhodes? Or what Anna Jay did to Brandi? What kind of man lets his wife post Instagram “thirst traps” while calling Brodie “daddy?” What kind of man stays away in his little bubble? A man like Cody does! But Cody is no man! Cody is a coward!

Brodie demands Silver give him something, and then takes it while pushing Silver away. Brodie holds up dog collars connected by a heavy chain! He tells Cody, “You can run a long time, but sooner or later, Brodie Lee is going to cut you down!” Brodie is going to take the collar, wrap it around Cody’s neck and that “Godforsaken tattoo,” and Cody will have NOWHERE to run and NOWHERE to hide. Cody has one week to answer Brodie’s challenge: “Are you man? Or are you a coward?” A lot of strong words and accusations, most of which aren’t true. But one thing is true, and that is that things are escalating! Will Cody and Brodie become animals chained together, fighting for the lion’s share of AEW?

 

Matt Hardy and Private Party head to the ring!

The #HardyParty is back together, and Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy help Hardy through the ropes. Hardy’s knee is still in awful shape after the attack by a conveniently anonymous attacker. Fans cheer as Hardy gets the mic. Hardy appreciates that, they made his birthday even better. Now, last week, someone attacked Hardy from behind. Hardy replayed the events over and over, trying to figure out who would have the motivation to attack in such a cowardly way. Hardy remembers his heated confrontation with MJF, his “discussion” with Brodie Lee, and everyone knows the long history and hatred with the Inner Circle. But all Hardy can really remember was a mask and something steel hitting his leg. So how coincidental that Chris Jericho strolled onto the scene, brandishing Floyd the Baseball Bat? Jericho is the prime suspect!

Speaking of Jericho and Hager, what about that match Private Party had with them? They tore the house down and were so close to winning. The only reason they didn’t win is because of Floyd the Baseball Bat! Jericho had the audacity to still put Kassidy in the Walls of Jericho after the match! “The more things change, the more things they stay the same.” Jericho wants to be the Million Viewer Man, the Demo God, but he will always just be an a-hole. But here comes Jericho to respond! He and the Inner Circle are all here, except for Sammy Guevara who is still recovering from the Broken Rules match. Jericho lets the fans sing Judas before he speaks.

“First of all, hApPy BiRtHdAy, Matt. Who gives a sh*t?!” But there’s only four Inner Circle members because of what Hardy did to their brother, they teammate, Sammy Guevara! Hardy says it “couldn’t have happened to a better guy.” Jericho says Hardy decimated poor Sammy, put him out of action, and who knows when he’ll be back? But Jericho lied, Sammy’s back tonight! Sammy swaggers out and the Inner Circle chants for him. They hug! Now, to the matters at hand. The fact that Hardy thinks Jericho needed to hit him from behind with a bat, c’mon! He’s the reason people watch AEW, “because they know what a son of a b*tch I am.” And trust him when he says that if he was going to hit Hardy with a bat, he’d just do it to Hardy’s face so you could also see the happiness in his eyes!

So Jericho did NOT hit Hardy with this bat or any bat. But he could hit Hardy with the bat now if he wants. Hardy and Jericho egg each other on, but Hardy says he’ll take on all of the Inner Circle! It doesn’t matter if he’s cleared or not! Anywhere, anytime, any place! Quen and Kassidy have Hardy cool off. Quen and Kassidy need and care about Hardy, so he should take time to heal up and get cleared. Because Quen is cleared! And in case Jericho forgot, Quen laid him out! From behind! But why? Because Jericho ambushed his bro, Kassidy! Kassidy has Quen chill now. Kassidy appreciates Hardy and Quen having his back, but this is on him. Kassidy wants Jericho!

Le Champion, you may have won last week, but if Kassidy isn’t mistaken, he almost beat Jericho! Not once, but twice! So right now, here on Hardy’s birthday, Kassidy issues a challenge! Next week, 1v1! Yes, Jericho is a legend. Everyone counts Kassidy out already. But what if Kassidy, “a young 23-year-old kid, from the streets of Brooklyn, New York, beats Chris Jericho?” In fact, what if right here on Dynamite, Kassidy makes Jericho… “My Le Champion BI*CH!” Jericho is not amused. Will Kassidy get the biggest win of his career? Or will he just suffer the Judas Effect?

 

AEW returns to FTR and Tully Blanchard in the ring.

Schiavone is there with them to interview the AEW World Tag Team Champions and their legendary “executive consultant.” Tully says is a great pleasure to talk to a live audience, every week! There are thousands and thousands of new fans, and how in the world do they get to see the greatest tag team, FTR, who carry the gold? How?! You have to be creative. Normally, a 60 minute time limit for the title match. But Tully wants to change things up. FTR has checked into this, and says that on television, it can be 20 minutes, “so those new wrestling fans get to see what it’s like to watch guys at the top.” A brush with greatness, if you will. And, they get to choose their opponents! Next week, FTR chooses… What’s their name? Some acronym. Those SoCal boys, right? SCU, that’s it.

So there you go! The inaugural champions get their “brush with greatness!” A 20 minute match with FTR! If SCU can’t get it done in time, FTR gets the win instead. A blast from the past! Dax Harwood knows we all want to know who’s next after that. If FTR beats SCU, who is next up? The #1 contenders, Best Friends? The #2, the Young Bucks? Well, Best Friends had an impressive match and won, but c’mon. It was a “glorified backyard wrestling match.” That’s all those guys are now! Backyard, comedy- But wait, here come Best Friends! Chuck Taylor and Trent respond to the insults by saying, “Guys. What we did last week, that wasn’t a match. That was a WAR!” Dax mocks Trent’s comparison.

Trent says they should just get to this. Sure, they’re banged up right onw, but they’re here! FTR is here, in their “little red panties,” so just give them their 20 minute challenge NOW! Yeah, haha, right. But mommy ain’t here to fight Trent’s battles, okay? If they want their brush with greatness, then get a damn ref and let’s do it! A ref appears and this is happening! But wait, Dax keeps the ref from signaling the timekeeper, and Cash Wheeler says they can’t do this now. Why not? FTR are fighting champions but Best Friends doesn’t look 100%, so it wouldn’t be fair. Take some time, guys, rest up. Maybe in a couple weeks, call Tully and maybe you’ll get that shot. Until then, #TopGuysOut.

Fans boo but Chuck says that you can say whatever about Santana and Ortiz, at least those two didn’t run from a fight, “Like a couple of weenies!” If those two didn’t come to fight, that’s fine. The weenies hug in their entrance, but let Best Friends show them how it’s done! GOT to give the people what they want! Will FTR give Best Friends what they want in that 20 minute “brush with greatness” soon enough?

 

Hikaru Shida & Thunder Rosa VS Ivelisse & Diamante!

The NWA Women’s World Champion defeated La Sicaria, but the Cuban Diamond would attack! The AEW Women’s World Champion would help out her new rival in running the AEW Women’s Tag Cup winners off, and now it’s come to this! There’s a lot of gold in this one match, will the outcome have an impact on where we go from here?

The champions stand together but Ivelisse and Diamante attack together! Ivelisse rains down rights on Rosa while Diamante is after Shida! The ref rings the bell to get this on record as Rosa and Ivelisse brawl outside and Diamante brawls with Shida inside. Ivelisse whips Rosa into railing while Diamante whips Shida corner to corner.

The women’s champions win and stand tall in this newest AEW NWA crossover! What more can we expect from these two champions and two promotions?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Isiah Kassidy is standing up for himself, what is Jericho’s response? “Deep down inside, I actually have a lot of respect for Isiah for showing some balls and taking matters into his own hands.” Some day, Kassidy will be a big star. Just not next week. Next week, he faces the biggest star in AEW, the Demo God! Next week, the only shots, shots, shots Kassidy gets are from the fists of Le Champion! MJF walks in and says hey. MJF is going to be honest as an “honest” man. The fact that that “dribbling little runt would disrespect you like that tonight? Deplorable.” It is, isn’t it? And hilarious, too. For that to come from “the undefeated, undisputed, uncrowned AEW World Champion,” that means so much to Jericho. Then MJF will tell Jericho this. All that coming from Jericho, “The man, the myth, the legend,” OH YEAH! That means a lot to MJF.

Jericho says MJF is great. MJF says Jericho is great. They keep going back and forth on that, but then ask, “Why’d you call me a loser?” Things are tense now. They both saw each other say it on television, Twitter, Instagram and Reddit! Does Jericho think is an idiot? Does MJF think Jericho’s an idiot? MJF says Jericho wasn’t the loser, it was the limo drivers! Those guys were reckless, with the two biggest stars in all of AEW! Jericho admits that is true. His latte splashed on his pants. But MJF isn’t a loser, Tony Schiavone is a loser! Oh, yeah, THAT guy is a loser! They bond over laughing at Schiavone, and say the other is alright. “Thanks, Dasha.” They both leave, but the point is: Will Kassidy upset Jericho next week?

 

AEW has more big news for next week!

Though she lost at All Out in her own dental office, Britt Baker is back in action! And Ricky Starks and Darby Allin will finally have it out in the ring! Will Absolute be able to put away the reckless and relentless underdog once and for all?

And on October 7th, it will be the celebration of Chris Jericho’s 30 YEAR career! And then after that is the Dynamite Anniversary, with Lance Archer facing whoever has the AEW World Championship! And that very match of Maniac and Mad King is after the break!

 

AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Eddie Kingston!

Plans change but the show must go on! Moxley won’t get his Six Man Tag war with Hobbs and Darby by his side, but after what Kingston had to say about him, he’s probably fine with this. Will Moxley make Kingston see that nothing’s changed from the old days?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this truly unforeseen main event begins!

Moxley and Kingston stare down as the fans fire up. Fans are cheering for Moxley and that annoys Kingston. Kingston and Moxley approach, back off, and tie up. Kingston headlocks, hits the takeover, but Moxley headscissors. Kingston pops out and the two stand off. They go again, knuckle lock and have a test of strength. Kingston cranks on the knuckle locks to bring Moxley to his knees, but Moxley fights up to kick an arm and wrench to a hammerlock. Kingston gets to the ropes, Moxley holds on until 4. Kingston pie faces, Moxley gives it back, and now they throw slaps! The two circle and Kingston CHOPS! Moxley CHOPS, Kingston CHOPS back! Moxley CHOPS again, Kingston CHOPS again!

Kingston eggs Moxley on, Moxley CHOPS again! Kingston takes a breath, CHOPS again and Moxley is stinging! Moxley throws forearms and CHOPS, then jabs! Kingston enziguris and LARIATS! Kingston drags Moxley up, throws him out of the ring and goes out after him with stomps. Kingston pulls on Moxley’s ears, lets up at the ref’s count, and clubs Moxley on the back. Kingston headlock punches but Moxley hits back. Moxley CLUBS Kingston on the apron but Kingston whips Moxley into the timekeeper’s area! And he dumps the table over on him! The ref wants them to get this back in the ring but Kingston throws things around as AEW goes picture in picture.

Kingston stomps away on Moxley, drags him up and throws big forearms. Moxley hobbles away, Kingston clubs him down! Kingston drags Moxley up but Moxley blocks the suplex. Moxley throws body shots and snap suplexes Kingston to the floor! Moxley gets into the ring just to refresh the count and comes back to kick Kingston. Moxley whips, Kingston reverses and Moxley is sent hard into railing! Kingston hobbles over to stomp on Moxley, then drags Moxley up to whip him. Moxley reverses this time and Kingston gets sent hard into railing! These two are fighting in the outer edges of the arena but Moxley brings Kingston back to the ring. Kingston kicks Moxley in the ropes!

Kingston knocks Moxley down and hobbles around to KICK Moxley in the back. Moxley sits up but Kingston is on him with crossface forearms! Kingston clutches his back and walks off the pain, but he dares Moxley get up. Moxley CHOPS back, and again, but Kingston headbutts! Moxley falls over, Kingston drags him back up and snapmares him for a trapped-arm dragon sleeper! Moxley endures as Kingston twists and stretches him. AEW returns to single picture as fans rally behind Moxley. Moxley fights up, Kingston shifts to a chinlock, but Moxley pries free and CHOPS again! Kingston CHOPS Moxley off his feet! Kingston eggs Moxley on as he CHOPS him again, and again! Kingston runs, BOOTS Moxley but Moxley LARIATS!

Both men are down, the fans rally up but a standing count begins. Moxley gets to ropes and drags himself up, but so does Kingston. Moxley runs and BOOTS Kingston out of the ring! Then builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit sends Kingston into barriers! Moxley snap suplexes him again! Kingston writhes but Moxley brings him back up. Moxley puts Kingston in, climbs up top and leaps! Kingston gets under, comes back but Moxley spins him for a clinch. Moxley throws muay thai knee after knee, then reels Kingston in for a PILEDRIVER! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Kingston saves himself and Moxley is frustrated. Fans rally up, Kingston gets to a corner but Moxley clotheslines!

Moxley climbs up and rains down elbows, but Moxley’s other shoulder bothers him. Kingston brings Moxley out for a POWERBOMB! Highs stack, TWO!! Moxley survives and Kingston shakes out his arms. Kingston aims, Moxley ducks the back hand to throw forearms! Kingston CHOPS again, and shouts at Moxley, “You left us behind!” Moxley forearms Kingston, Kingston CHOPS back! Moxley CHOPS back, Kingston grimaces to CHOP again! Moxley drops to his knees but comes back with forearms and headbutts! Kingston wobbles, boots but misses, and Moxley GERMAN SUPLEXES! Kingston is back up!? SAIDO!! And then ANOTHER! Cover, TWO!! Moxley still lives!!

Fans fire up for Moxley as Kingston shakes out his hands. Kingston CHOPS Moxley in the corner, and again, but Moxley forearms. Kingston SLAPS Moxley, Moxley SLAPS back! Kingston wobbles, Moxley hobbles, but Moxley blocks the back hand for a SLEEPER HOLD! Moxley leans on Kingston, shift to the BULLY CHOKE!! Kingston is OUT, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still AEW World Champion)

Did that prove to Kingston that Moxley still has that edge? His chest is as red as raw steak but he still has gold around the waist! But then the Lucha Brothers come out and DOUBLE SUPERKICK Moxley down!! Pentagon and Fenix go after Moxley on behalf of their other brother! The ref shouts at them all but they won’t stop! So here comes Will Hobbs! Hobbs SPINE BUSTERS Fenix!! And Pentagon turns around into a BIG right! Kingston runs into a forearm, too! Fenix and Pentagon regroup to DOUBLE SUPERKICK Hobbs! They mug Hobbs and Moxley, but here comes Darby Allin! Darby uses the skateboard on everyone! Moxley’s team was still here because of the intended match, but so is Ricky Starks! Starks SPEARS Darby right down!!

Absolute Starks fires off on Darby, Taz walks out as Kingston and his family beat down Hobbs and Moxley! Starks uses Darby’s own board on him with the JAM into his ribs! Kingston gets in Moxley’s face about their past, Starks tries to end Darby’s future by choking him! Then, ROSHAMBEAU!! Is Moxley and his team far from through with all of their common enemies?


My Thoughts:

Well, clearly whatever COVID concerns WWE and their Performance Center were having, it affected AEW as well. The main event changing was the most obvious sign of that, but also the fact that in the Young Bucks interview segment, we didn’t even see Nick. Perhaps Nick was also in contact with the unnamed person and needed to isolate, but Matt still did a good job adding onto the apparent Heel turn for the Bucks smashing up Schiavone’s phone. I also like that Omega’s turn was in question tonight as he at least voiced concern about Hangman being outnumbered against The Dark Order. But Hangman proved he can take care of himself, and I still fully expect Omega to try and stand in his way of a singles championship opportunity.

Miro & Sabian VS Jersey’s Finest really worried me at many parts. It felt like they were all going a step too fast, such as with Miro hobbling at one point and Kip more or less taking a header during that alley-oop spot. They also weren’t that careful with the toss to apron back suplex, that could’ve gone better for Janela. But Miro and Sabian win, and perhaps this is both a way for Miro to have immediate success in AEW while also helping Sabian get back on track after losing Jimmy Havoc as a tag partner. The tag division is already so deep, so you also have to commend the idea of 20 minute time limit matches between FTR and other big name teams. I liked their interaction with Best Friends here, especially from Best Friends’ side. FTR VS SCU next week is going to be great, but I’m thinking at best, it’s the time limit draw.

Brodie VS Cassidy was a great TNT Championship match, there were a lot of great gags with Silver, and while Cody’s return was all but obvious, I like how he did it. He waited for the match to be over, he gave himself that insane amount of fanfare and pyro, and he wrecked the Numbers. Also of note, Reynolds was absent. Was he also in contact with the unnamed person or was he THE person? That aside, Brodie’s promo after was great, in that he spun everything around to make himself the good guy, a classic Heel move. A dog collar match is a blast from the past for sure, and of course Cody will accept because I bet that was his idea! That will surely be for the anniversary show since Brodie wants to hear the answer next week.

Speaking of next week, celebrating Jericho’s 30 years in wrestling with a match against Kassidy is great. I figured the assumption would be Jericho did it, and I figured Jericho would deny it. Now, Jericho said he didn’t hit Hardy with a bat, but that doesn’t mean Sammy didn’t, since Sammy is back this week and could’ve easily been secretly back last week. Jericho’s segment with MJF was great, too. I like that they both brought up the segment from a couple weeks ago, but each found a way to weasel out of insulting the other. I wonder if at some point, passive aggressive becomes actual aggressive, and that is when MJF debuts the faction he teased maybe putting together. MJF VS Jericho, Wardlow VS Hager, the three new guys against Sammy, Santana and Ortiz in whatever fashion, that’d be fun.

The women’s tag was great, and though there were still some timing issues, there weren’t any obvious personal issues with Ivelisse and Thunder Rosa. The singles champions win together, which is fine since it keeps contender lines clear. It really is a mystery about how this partnership of NWA and AEW will continue, but if it can grow stronger, it’ll clearly be great for both companies. And for the time being, it also seems focused in the women’s divisions, which makes sense as the depth and attention to AEW’s is not quite what everyone was expecting. Perhaps having such a deep tag division is taking away from the women’s division? Just curious.

The new main event we got of Moxley and Kingston was amazing, especially considering it wasn’t the original plan. Kingston bringing up their past was brilliant, and these guys really went hard. I like that there was a way for them to bring in Hobbs and Darby since they were clearly here for the original Six Man Tag and didn’t get to do it now. Darby and Starks are having their match next week, but I wonder if things circle back so that Darby, Hobbs and Moxley still get to team together, just against Kingston and the Lucha Brothers for the “go-home” on 10/7. Archer can even interfere in some way to keep Moxley from being the one in the decision and maybe Hobbs takes the loss. There’s ways to still get what was planned in part, I hope AEW can do it.

My Score: 9.3/10

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Skye Blue VS Trish Adora; Skye wins.
  • Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tracy Williams; Cage wins.
  • Lance Archer VS Cheeseburger; Archer wins.

  • 8 Man Tag: Best Friends VS The Factory; Best Friends win.

QUICK NOTES

A really good line-up here, with the big attraction being Dalton & The Boys taking on Adrien Soriano, Matthew Omen, & Gabriel Hodder, aka Primal Fear. That’ll be a solid match that I will cover, but I don’t see the champions losing the titles. Good to see Cheeseburger but he’s gonna get eaten alive by Archer. And I like that we’re getting a full faction showdown of Best Friends VS The Factory. That’ll be a big win for Best Friends and they’ll have momentum going after Death Triangle for that feud.

AEW World Tag Team Championships Triple Threat: The Acclaimed VS Private Party VS The Butcher & The Blade!

The Open Challenge was answered in a big, BIG way! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens aren’t just facing one team, but TWO teams, both under the Andrade Family Office. Will Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy and the menacing mercenaries make El Idolo proud? Or will it be a Mic Drop from the #ForeverChampions?

Justin Roberts makes the introductions before The Acclaimed make their entrance. “Yo! Listen! Listen! Yo! Yo! Everybody loves the new champions. Even Adam Lavine was in our DMs! Philly knows Private Party sucks! Y’all need to hop off Matt Hardy’s nuts. Tonight, yo, our hands go up. Y’all’re losers, and that’s why your band broke up. Y’know Acclaimed been winning. We run your who team into the ground like Ben Simmons!” Bowens takes over to say, “PHILADELPHIAAAA~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!” And they do! But will Platinum Max & the Five Tool Player stay golden with the odds stacked against them?

In this kind of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are active at any time, so Bowens steps up against Kassidy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” for The Acclaimed. Matt Hardy is watching backstage, quietly cheering on Private Party. Bowens and Kassidy circle, tie up, and Bowens wrenches an arm. Kassidy rolls, kips up, wrenches back, and has a wristlock. Bowens slips through, wrenches back to a hammerlock, spin and snapmare to a ghost pin, TWO! Kassidy gets a backslide, TWO! Bowens runs in but Kassidy sweeps the legs to a cover, ONE! Bowens returns the favor, ONE as Kassidy goes Matrix! But Bowens schoolboys, TWO!

Things speed up, Kassidy RANAS Bowens, and fans are torn while Kassidy talks trash. But Butcher & Blade tell Kassidy to focus and he rushes Bowens, only for Bowens to ELBOW, JAB, CHOP and SUPERK- NO, Kassidy goes Matrix again! Bowens says it was that close. Kassidy offers a handshake, Bowens shakes hands to show respect, but then Butcher & Blade reach out for a tag. Kassidy says no way, homies. He swings on Bowens but Bowens gets around and puts him in the Acclaimed corner! Caster tags in, Bowens feeds Kassidy to a takedown. Caster then shifts to get a leg, he stomps it, and he makes scissor fingers.

Caster drags Kassidy up, ducks his haymaker to CHOP and DROPKICK! Fans fire up and Caster SCISSORS Billy! Caster brings Kassidy up to a headlock but Kassidy powers out. Bowens sneaks a tag, Caster sunsets and Bowens runs in, NECKBREAKER BACKBREAKER COMBO! Fans fire up, Quen runs in but Caster tackles him. Bowens goes up top and Caster drags Quen over.

A massive first defense for Caster & Bowens, and they come away the champions! And they SCISSOR~! Will this victory only make the celebration on National Scissors Day that much bigger?

 

Backstage interview with The Firm.

Lexi Nair is trying to get a word with Stokely Hathaway and the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten. They are talking among themselves but she speaks up. Austin & Colten had some “harsh words” for FTR last week. Oh, you mean Mr. Mustache and Mullet Man? Well, since the Gunn Sons get TV time and they don’t, Colten & Austin will gladly things. Austin wants to know how FTR holds the “Ring of Horror” tag titles- No, the Ring of Honor tag titles. Oh, right. Well, they also have the “Triple A Batteries” titles. No, no, Triple A. And the IWGP R2D2 titles. It’s just IWGP. But speaking of those, FTR is currently in London to defend those.

“Well, regardless,” Colten says, “they don’t have what we want, and that’s the AEW titles.” Austin says that’s right. Also, FTR has been holding on to their #1 contenders status for like eight years now and have yet to make moves! So the Gunns will make the move everyone else in AEW does, and that’s leap frog FTR to go right for the champs! Top Gunns, out! Will Austin & Colten’s need for speed get them to the top? Or will they crash ‘n’ burn against The Acclaimed?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

Lexi Nair says that was an incredible win last week at Rampage: Grand Slam, where even hip hop legend, Trina, anointed Jade as the NEW “Baddest B*tch.” Jade knows that, “Lindsey.” But that’s besides the point. “All you whack ass, fat ass-” Leila Grey says Jade should chill out, but Jade says she’s gonna say what she wants! She’s so bored because AEW hasn’t brought her any kind of competition. But then Nyla Rose, Marina Shafir & Vickie Guerrero walk in. Vickie reminds Jade that the last time she faced Nyla, Jade won but didn’t pin her. That doesn’t matter! Jade beat Nyla! And Marina, too! Vickie has the Problem Solver stand down and Nyla speaks up.

“What’s the matter, Jade? I’m not one of your precious little numbers? Scared of a little one-on-one?” Oh, one on one? Okay, Jade will give Nyla what she wants, but on Jade’s time. Now get outta her face! Vickie takes off her scarf and throws it at Leila, telling her to cover herself up. The Vicious Vixens head out, and the Baddies wonder what’s wrong with how Leila’s dressed. Will the Native Beast be the one that finally ends the undefeated streak?

 

Lee Moriarty w/ The Firm VS Fuego Del Sol!

Someone else with title aspirations is #TAIGASTYLE, who ditched Matt Sydal to join Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s faction on retainer. Moriarty wants the ROH Pure Championship around Daniel Garcia’s waist, but will he stomp out the Fire of the Sun first?

The bell rings and fans rally up. The two tie up, Moriarty headlocks and grinds then shifts to a cravat. Fuego endures but Moriarty pushes him down. Fuego keeps himself up, but Moriarty sweeps the arms to then roll Fuego into a snapmare cradle, TWO! Fuego gets up into a CHOP, headbutt and EuroUpper! Moriarty grins, he wrenches Fuego and whips, but Fuego reverses to mule kick! Fuego runs, handsprings over Moriarty’s dropdown, but Moriarty DROPKICKS Fuego down! Moriarty grins again while fans boo. Moriarty stomps Fuego at the ropes again and again until the ref counts. Moriarty lets off, to then stomp away again!

The ref counts, Moriarty lets off and Fuego goes to a corner. Moriarty runs in in to SHINING WIZARD! Moriarty reels Fuego into an arm-trap SAIDO SUPLEX! Moriarty mockingly applauds at the fans, then he looms over Fuego. Fans rally, Moriarty wrenches and hooks Fuego up, for a FACEBUSTER! Stokely likes what he sees as Moriarty clamps on the BORDER CITY STRETCH! Fuego taps, Moriarty wins!

Winner: Lee Moriarty, by submission

The fans boo as Moriarty holds on past the bell, and Moriarty lets go when Fuego stops tapping! Moriarty says this is HIS time, but Fuego’s not done suffering! Morrissey clamps on a claw and deadlifts Fuego by his head! And then holds him up with one arm! For a SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!!! Fuego just fell from the sky, will The Firm dominate AEW sooner rather than later?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page & The Dark Order.

Lexi Nair stands with The Cowboy, as well as Evil Uno & Preston Vance. She notes that last week on Rampage, Hangman won the Grand Slam Golden Ticket Battle Royal and is now headed to Cincinnati and an AEW World Championship match with Jon Moxley. Hangman says his match with Mox is just a few weeks away, and this is one Hangman has been looking forward to for a very long time. Uno says that everyone will be in Hangman’s corner for this. But wait, here come Andrade and Jose. Jose points out that if you look back, look what happened when Vance got eliminated. Jose uses his tablet to play the footage on the TV.

Jay Lethal triangle jumps, aiming for Hangman, but Hangman ducks and Vance takes the hit. Jose says it’s Hangman who eliminated Vance! Uno says that’s ridiculous logic. Andrade says he just wants to help Vance. This week is a big opportunity for Vance. What does Vance say to a 1v1? If Andrade wins, Vance gives up his mask. Deal? Vance shakes hands, but then he then pulls Andrade in. Vance has his own condition: If Vance beats Andrade, Andrade leaves AEW for good! High stakes between Number Ten and El Idolo, who wins for the Dynamite Anniversary?

But wait, the Firm walks in now? Stokely says they haven’t been snitching cuz they don’t like snitches, but… Jose says if Stokely wants to speak with El Idolo, he has to go through Jose. Oh, so Jose’s the boss? Ethan Page thought the boss was Andrade. And if he is, then maybe pay a little more attention to them. Be more firm with Private Party. Because Ethan knows there’s some “contract tampering” with their new-old friend, Matt Hardy. Stokely says that’s a bit messy. Andrade asks Jose what that’s about, and Jose does admit Hardy’s sniffing around. Will El Idolo crash the #HardyParty before it begins?

Hayter flexes but give a big assist to Britt Baker, DMD. With their friendship stronger than ever, will Hayter & Baker take over AEW?

 

Wardlow and Samoa Joe speak.

The AEW TNT Champion says, “Together, the power, and the mayhem, and the chaos is limitless.” The ROH World Television Champion says, “What stands before you is WARDJOE! It is a creed and it is a call, to all that battle, to all who seek to stand before all, that all will fall, and all who think they’re ready for what we will do… will be left wanting.” Will there be no stopping this Two TITAN Power Trip?

 

Ryan Nemeth is in the ring.

The Hollywood Hunk introduces himself, and he wants to set things straight. First off, Rocky Balboa is not real! Secondly, Ben Franklin was nothing but a two-pump chump who moved here to DIE. He will give Philly credit, they do have a long-standing wrestling tradition. What was it again? Extremely Crappy Wrestling? Is that what it was? Wait! Here comes HOOK! We were expecting to see the FTW Champion, and now he has even more of a reason to show up with someone talking crap on ECW. Hook gets in the ring to CLOBBER Nemeth! And then he drags Nemeth up to bump him off buckles, and then SAYANAGI with authority!

Hook then sits Nemeth up to give him CLUBBING crossface forearms! Nemeth is a ragdoll as it is but Hook puts on REDRUM!! Nemeth taps fast but passes out just as quickly! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil just showed everyone you do NOT insult Extreme Championship Wrestling with him around. But wait, as Hook heads up the ramp, The Trustbusters walk out. Ari Daivari has Sonny Kiss and “Jeeves Kay” (AKA VSK) with him. And Jeeves, being the butler, has an invitation for Hook on a silver platter. Jeeves leaves it on the ground for Hook and the Trust Busters leave. Hook snatches up the letter and takes his leave, what is Daivari Dinero planning now?

 

AEW shares footage of Swerve’s visit to Rolling Loud NYC.

As Keith Lee let us know last Wednesday, Swerve had this prior engagement to attend, hence the champs defending against other teams. But despite the good time Swerve had with the hip hop and rap stars of today, he is still furious about that loss at Grand Slam. Will Swerve look to be the rock that smashes National Scissors Day this Wednesday?

 

AEW looks at Jon Moxley VS Hangman Page.

The Blue Eyed Battler says, “I remember this building. I remember Hangman Page.” That is to say, it was last year’s Dynamite Anniversary that these two did battle in the Casino Ladder Match. “They say he’s the future of AEW. Okay. I’m the present. I am the here and now.” The Cowboy says, “So I’ve won the Golden Ticket Battle Royal on Rampage and I am the #1 contender to the AEW World Championship.” Moxley says, “Cowboy Sh*t, right? Yeah, we’ll see.”

Hangman says, “The one thing that I need almost as much as the AEW World Championship, is the people. The people have always been behind me, they light a fire under me. They keep me going.” The cameraman hates to break this to Hangman, but their title match is in Cincy. “Aw, sh*t.” The Cowboy knows he’ll be walking in as the enemy, but will he find away around homefield advantage? Or will this title stay with the Blackpool Combat Club?

 

Mark Henry talks with tonight’s main eventers.

The World’s Strongest Man says to the Dark Order that LFI, La Faccion Ingobernables has been trying to poach Vance from them. How do they feel about that? And what is their course of action tonight? Silver says that honestly, LFI’s little man crush on Ten is starting to come off a little bit creepy. Alex Reynolds says that all this stuff, this poaching attempt, will not affect The Dark Order. They’re a real family, and they are one. And because of that, “Mr. Rush,” tonight the Meat Man beats you! Andrade says okay, “piqueno,” calm down. Tonight, LFI shows everyone who they are. They are winners! The Dark Order doesn’t deserve Ten!

Jose points out that Silver can’t ignore that Rush eliminated him from the Battle Royal. Rush tells the “little boy” that all this talk is too much. He’s not here to talk. Rush is here to fight! He’ll see you in the ring, perro! Andrade has Rush tranquilo and Mark Henry says it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Johnny Hungy prove LFI doesn’t win everything? Or will El Toro Blanco bulldoze through Silver to further damage the Dark Order?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Battle of the Belts 4!

After the controversial way The Bastard retained the title against Orange Cassidy, he must now defend the All-Atlantic Championship against Trent Beretta! And speaking of which, we hear from #JustTrent!

“Something my mom always told me growing up, ‘You never hit a man in the head with a hammer.’ Pac, you broke one of Sue’s rules. Orange, he’s not here. He’s hurt right now. And when you hurt one of our friends, we hurt you.” But legally, cuz they’re good boys. So in DC, Bastard, Trent’s gonna hurt you. “Hands in, boys.” Chuck Taylor, Danhausen and Rocky Romero put their hands in with Trent, this one’s for Orange!

 

Rush w/ Jose the Assistant VS John Silver w/ Alex Reynolds!

LFI wants to grow stronger by making the Dark Order weaker, and while Andrade takes on Vance in a Mask VS AEW Career match, this one is straight up about pride and machismo! Will Rush fire the first salvo in this faction warfare? Or will the Meat Man make ground beef outta El Toro Blanco?

The bell rings and fans rally up. Silver and Rush approach, and Philly cheers for “JOHNNY HUNGY!” Rush shoves Silver but Silver headlocks back. Rush throws hands, powers out, and runs Silver over. Rush stomps away, flexes to mock Silver, then runs. Silver stays low then hurdles to drop again. Rush leaps over, they both run, and Silver UPPERCUTS Rush out of the ring! Fans fire up as Silver flexes now. LFI regroups but Silver builds speed, only to roll and copy Tranquilo! LFI is furious now, and Andrade wants Rush to end Silver! Rush gets in, and he DECKS Silver with that right! Silver sits up in a daze, Rush stomps him back down.

Rush pretends to take something from Silver’s head, either a mask or his actual head, and he “punts” it into the crowd! The kick is good, and Rush goes back to Silver. Rush CHOPS Silver in a corner, CHOPS again, then whips corner to corner. Rush clotheslines then whips again to clothesline the other corner. Rush snapmares and basement dropkicks! Fans boo as Rush kips up to mock the #JoinDarkOrder hand. Silver goes to the apron and Reynolds checks on him, but Rush goes out to drag Silver of and whip him into railing! Rush then brings Silver around to throw hands, and he whips Silver into more railing!

Fans boo but Silver CHOPS and ROCKS Rush! Rush CHOPS back! Rush grabs camera cables but the ref reprimands. Rush snarls but he kicks Silver around. Rush puts Silver in the ring, tells everyone to tranquilo, but fans boo. Rush grits his teeth and gets in, he blocks a kick and he DECKS Silver again. Rush then stomps away on Silver in the corner! Rush runs corner to corner, only to stop short and BOOT Silver instead! Fans boo while Rush Tranquilos, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Rush soaks up the heat, drags Silver up, but Silver throws hands. Rush HEADBUTTS Silver, then throws him out! It kinda catches Andrade by surprise, he was watching the crowd. Rush distracts the ref, and Andrade stomps Silver down! Andrade gets away and Rush soaks up more heat. Andrade mocks Silver, dares him to get up, and the ring count climbs. Silver drags himself up but Rush goes out after him, to SMACK him off the timekeeper’s table! And again! Then he CHOPS Silver onto the table! Silver gets up but Rush is after him again, to RAM him into the railing. Rush takes a water bottle to pour it out on his head, he’s getting hot in Philly.

Silver sputters again but Rush kicks him around. Rush drags Silver onto the ropes to CHOKE him! The ref reprimands, Rush lets off at 4, and he argues with the ref. Rush drags Silver from ropes to say this is over. Rush goes up the corner, fans rally up, and Rush SUPER SENTONS but FLOPS!

Silver avoids disaster while Rush writhes! A standing count starts, Reynolds rallies the fans up for Silver, and Rampage returns to single picture as the Meat Man rises! Silver runs in to SPLASH Rush! Silver runs but Rush follows to SPLASH! Rush runs corner to corner but Silver follows to SPLASH again! Silver runs, but he suckers Rush in for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Rush gets up, swings, but into another GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up with Silver as he has a wild look in his eye!

Uno goes after Rush, but now Butcher & Blade rush out! The AFO are here to help their boss! Now the numbers are back in LFI’s favor! But wait! Here comes Hangman! The Cowboy dodges Andrade, BOOTS Blade, dumps Butcher out, then stares Rush down. They fire off hands, a revisit from how the Golden Ticket Battle Royal finished!

BUCKSHOT for the assistant! Rush is furious, and it is clear he and Hangman have unfinished business. So THIS JUST IN! Tony Khan makes it official for the Dynamite Anniversary episode! Hangman Page VS Rush 1v1! Will the Cowboy wrangle El Toro Blanco before taking on the AEW World Champion?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Rampage to follow up Dynamite and the Grand Slam, as well as to help set up things for the anniversary week. The tag title match was a great opening match, and it did a great job propelling multiple stories. For one, Acclaimed retain, which I figured anyway. They’re surely going to defend against Austin & Colten next, since the Gunns called them out while also calling FTR out. Acclaimed will win there, too, and who knows how it goes with FTR. I don’t wanna say Tony Khan booked himself into a corner, but he’s come close. FTR can’t really lose since they have THREE different tag titles, but The Acclaimed are so popular that it’d be a shame if they lost.

Good segment from The Baddies and the Vixens. Nice character work with Jade; she wants stronger competition yet is hesitant when such a competitor steps up. Nyla VS Jade will be a great match, and with both Marina and Vickie, they’ll be able to cancel out with Kiera and Leila, meaning Nyla will have a fair(er) shot than most. Moriarty gets a quick win off Fuego, but the big thing is Moriarty’s new Heel aggression and Morrissey also getting his in. Assuming Garcia leaves the Jericho Appreciation Society to go full Face, he and Moriarty are gonna have one hell of a feud and match. Also I like that The Firm has to be the one to tell Andrade about Hardy wanting Private Party back, it adds another dimension to that faction’s identity.

Really good promo from #WARDJOE, and I like the idea that they’re going to be some new kind of Two Man Power Trip. They might not go for the ROH tag titles since FTR are technically Wardlow’s pals, but that also adds to the complexities of the AEW tag title picture. Unless Wardlow & Joe each go for other singles titles instead. That could be a way around it, especially with Jericho wanting to bury former ROH World Champions. Jericho VS Joe would be some awesome stuff. Hook whooping Nemeth was also pretty awesome. But I bet with the Trustbusters’ invitation to Hook, the options are A) join the Trustbusters or B) put up the FTW title. And I think we know which one Hook will choose.

Great stuff from Hayter VS Willow, fans love them both and those two can go. Again, there was wasted potential in just doing away with Hayter VS Britt as a feud. But whatever, Britt helps Hayter win, Hayter can have momentum while Britt’s nose heals up, and then we wait and see if they ever/never circle back to a feud. I mean, it could work, with Britt getting jealous of Hayter being just as beloved by the fans and getting opportunities for titles. Glad to see the feud of Death Triangle VS Best Friends continues, as now Trent gets a shot at Pac for Battle of the Belts IV. Not sure Trent wins that one, but it’ll be an awesome match.

And I like what we’re getting out of the LFI VS Dark Order feud. Good promo segment to set up Andrade VS Vance, but I don’t see Andrade leaving AEW so he’ll be taking Vance’s mask. Rush VS Silver was a great main event, but of course Heels win with Heel tactics. Reynolds and Jose should’ve been more careful with that apron trip-up spot, though, that was not a clean drop. Of course we get a brawl, and of course Hangman helps the Dark Order. Hangman VS Rush 1v1 is going to be an awesome match for the anniversary show, and it’ll help Hangman get some momentum going into the title match in Cincy. Great promo from him and Moxley, too, and Hangman was perfectly in character realizing he’s going to be at a disadvantage.

My Score: 8.7/10
