PLAY BY PLAY

Tony Schiavone welcomes the arriving MJF and Chris Jericho.

He wants to talk to them about the one match everyone is talking about from All Out. They both thank him for the compliment. But Jericho says MJF had a great match. He meant to say it before: MJF got robbed by Jon Moxley, who cheated behind the back of that stupid ref! But it’s okay, because Jericho guarantees MJF will be champion very soon. MJF says that Jericho saying that means the world to him. MJF knows it’s genuine and will give it back. The fact he had to touch that “soulless ginger prick” who puts his hands in his pockets and then lost not once but twice, it’s criminal. But MJF promises Jericho will one day regain HIS AEW World Championship, and that is a guarantee. Much respect between the two. Have a great show. You have a great show! But as both leave, they each say, “What a loser.”

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Eddie Kingston VS Jurassic Express!

Pentagon and Rey Fenix didn’t win the Casino Battle Royal, but Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus didn’t win against the Young Bucks. But both teams are still hoping to get after the AEW World Tag Team Champions, FTR! Who makes big progress towards that goal here tonight?

The teams sort and JB starts against Fenix. They tie up, Fenix puts JB in the corner but lets off fast. They tie up again, Fenix wrenches to a wristlock but JB wrenches back to a hammerlock then a headlock. Fenix powers out and sends JB to the corner but JB boots him back. JB rolls, hops up to Electric Chair and wheelbarrow to arm-drag Fenix to a corner! JB goes up, springboards and arm-drags Fenix again! JB kicks, Fenix blocks and stomps his foot to ROCK him with an uppercut. Fenix wrenches, CHOPS, and then goes up the corner to tightrope walk, springboard and arm-drag JB! JB dodges the dropkick, Fenix dodges JB’s, cover, ONE! The two stand off and the fans are fired up!

Kingston tells Fenix to keep on JB, Fenix body shots and tags Pentagon. They whip JB, speed things up, and dropkick JB to then sucker punch Luchasaurus! Pentagon runs, Fenix wheelbarrows him for the victory roll SPLASH! Pentagon drags JB up, fans rally and Pentagon says hush. He CHOPS JB and then clubs JB down. Fenix goes up, Pentagon packages JB but JB gets out to tag Luchasaurus! Pentagon is fed to the HEADBUTT! Luchasaurus wheelbarrows JB for the flying COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, but Fenix breaks it! The fans rally, JB uses Luchasaurus to leap and hit Fenix! Pentagon bails out to regroup with Fenix, Kingston and even Butcher and Blade.

Luchasaurus dares Pentagon to bring it, Pentagon gets back in and he has Fenix settle down. Pentagon has Luchasaurus wait for him to take off the glove. Pentagon throws it at Luchasaurus, but Luchasaurus interrupts the catchphrase! Pentagon CHOPS, Luchasaush CHOPS and Penta falls! Penta KICKS back, finishes CERO MIEDO, then runs, to springboard crossbody! Luchasaurus gets past to tag JB for the FLYING RANA! Fenix tags in, he springboard but JB gets under. Penta and Fenix both get thrown by JB’s huricanrana! JB DIVES to hit Fenix, then baits Pentagon in to a shoulder. JB goes up but gets shoved off into a SUPERKICK! Kingston shouts as Pentagon covers JB, TWO!

Pentagon keeps his cool but the fans fire up even harder. Pentagon drags JB up to choke him on the ropes, but lets up at the ref’s count. He drags JB up to KICK the leg! Pentagon swaggers, “CERO! MIEDO!” Pentagon aims again and KICKS JB so hard he goes upside-down! Pentagon drags JB up, snapmares and digs his shoulder in to pull the arms back. JB endures, reaches, and the fans rally up. Pentagon pulls hair and rakes eyes, then tags in Fenix. The Lucha Brothers mug JB, then they double back suplex. JB lands on his feet, ducks Fenix and goes up and over Pentagon to tag in Luchasaurus!

Luchasaurus rallies with lariats, CHOPS and BOOTS! Luchasaurus whips Fenix, pops him up to a fireman’s carry, WIDOWMAKER! Fans fire up with Luchasaurus as he stalks Fenix. Luchasaurus drags Fenix up, scoops him but Pentagon saves Fenix. They shove Luchasaurus to a corner but Luchasaurus KNEES Pentagon and puts Fenix on the apron. Fenix enziguris, but jumps into a choke grip and JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM!! Standing moonsault! Cover, but Penta KICKS it apart! Pentagon gets in Luchasaurus’ face, “This is Awesome!” CERO! MIE- TAIL WHIP!! Luchasaurus tags in JB, Jurassic Express whip Fenix but he springboards for a FLYING HEADBUTT!

Fenix rams into JB, Gory Especials, and then GORY BOMB LEG DROP COMBO! Fenix crawls to his corner, hot tag to Pentagon! Pentagon SLING BLADE Luchasaurus, but JB slips out of his. Penta goes up and over to BACKSTABBER JB! The fans fire up, Pentagon brings JB up and Fenix climbs. LB DRIVER!! Fenix FLIES onto Luchasaurus!! Cover, TWO!?! JB survives?!? Pentagon is in shock and Kingston is furious! Fenix tags in and Pentagon goes up. But JB sends Fenix into the DESTROYER! He rolls Fenix up, Jurassic Express wins!!

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall

Unbelievable! Jungle Boy Jack Perry pulls a victory from the jaws of defeat! As for the Lucha Brothers, they start arguing and shoving. Kingston, Butcher and Blade hurry to stop the fighting, and Kingston asks, “Are we done?” He tells them to stop it! What is going on?! Fenix, stop, or Kingston is gonna…! They’re here for them, not PAC! For that matter, where is Blade’s bunny? What happened in the battle royal? There were FIVE of them! And Fenix hits Blade in the face! Accident?! Kingston’s ass! Where was Pentagon when the others showed up? They should be running AEW! Now shake hands! He demands the brothers make up, but Pentagon just shoves Fenix!

Kingston wants them to listen to him. They’re his best friends, and these two are brothers! Shake hands! Fenix reluctantly offers again, and Pentagon… Accepts. They hug it out, and one more thing! Don’t think Kingston forgot! He was never truly eliminated! Look up the rules! Wait, was he or wasn’t he? AEW officials may need to take a closer look at the footage. Will Lance Archer also have something to say about Kingston’s claim?

 

AEW hears from Jake the Snake and Lance Archer.

“Never a doubt in my mind. Never a thought in his mind other than walking out as the winner. Why? Because that is what we came for!” Jon Moxley can play here and there as a good guy, but that’s not these two. They don’t buy cars, they trash cars and people. It’s what they do. It’s what they like. Moxley will get wet when he pisses himself when Archer gets at him! Archer says Moxley has had nothing but time to prepare for the others, but he has nothing but despair for Archer! Moxley has been champion too long and the Murderhawk Monster will end it! There’s not a damn thing anyone can do about it! #EverbodyDies, but will Archer kill the reign of the Death Rider?

 

AEW returns as Matt Hardy heads to the ring!

Somehow, the unkillable did not die at All Out and is back on Dynamite. He thanks the fans for being here as they chant his name. Hardy says it’s great to be in an arena with live, real people and revel in that emotion! The fans are part of the magic, thank you! And to the people watching at home, thank you, too. Saturday at All Out, Hardy suffered a very, very scary fall, and it scared a lot of people. The last couple of days, the outpouring of love has been overwhelming, mind-blowing, and again he thanks us all for that. Hardy is very happy to stand here before us and say that after a myriad of tests, he is expected to make a 100% recovery!

But he won’t lie, with his shirt saying “I Don’t Die,” and he will admit he is a lucky man. He has a lovely family, as Ms. Reby and the newborn Barney are here live, as well as Maxwell and Wolfgang at home. HE apologizes for putting them through that on Saturday. He apologizes to fans for putting them through that. But they all showed everyone else how much they care about the wrestlers putting their bodies on the line, so thank you. The last thing he apologizes for is that Broken Rules didn’t end up the way he wanted. But maybe it’s a good thing if the vendetta ends here, because someone really could end up hurt very, very badly.

Now Hardy will get back to getting healthy. And when he’s cleared, he’ll get back in the ring, winning matches, getting in the top five, and getting after the AEW World Championship. Good plan? Private Party sure loves that plan! Most importantly, pro-wrestling is his passion, and Hardy’s journey is not over! A big part of that is because of all the fans. Without the fans, there would be no Hardy! Pro-wrestling fans are the best! The fans give Hardy a standing ovation but he applauds them back. When and where will Hardy return to head for the gold?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Angelico w/ Jack Evans!

Freshly Squeezed is coming fresh off winning the first-ever Mimosa Mayhem match, and now he’s got the juice as a main event draw! But will he keep rolling and get past the savvy South African half of the Hybrid2?

The bell rings and the fans are fired up for Cassidy. Evans tells them to shut up and take Angelico seriously. Cassidy is distracted and Angelico sucker punches him! Angelico wrenches to a top keylock, then crisscrosses the arms for a modified straitjacket. Angelico then spins through, but Cassidy spins through. They spin and spin and spin but Cassidy breaks free. Cassidy brings his hands up but Angelico intercepts with knuckle locks! Angelico pushes Cassidy down, Cassidy keeps him off, goes way up, but Angelico gets a Navarro Doce, the modified Gory Especial. Angelico has both arms and a leg, but Cassidy pops free only for Angelico to knee low.

Angelico wrenches, arm-drags but Cassidy comes back and tilt-ow-whirls, only for Angelico to push him off to a drop toehold! Navarro 2000! But Cassidy gets the ropes for the ropebreak and is free of the modified STF. Angelico whips Cassidy to a corner, runs in but Cassidy  ducks down! Angelico tumbles up and out and Evans checks on him. Angelico gets his legs moving but Cassidy builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit into the rails, then Cassidy puts Angelico in to go up top. FLYING CROSSBODY! Cassidy runs, tilt-o whirls and gets the DDT! Fans are fired up as Cassidy kips up! The armband comes off and Cassidy is serious! Angelico staggers up, Cassidy give shim the ORANGE PUNCH! Cover, Cassidy wins!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

The King of Sloth Style no longer has just one speed, but he still puts his hands in his pockets. Only for Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana and Ortiz, to attack him! They use their baton, the mad ball, and their fists to beat him down! But here come Best Friends, Chuck Taylor and Trent! Best Friends run PNP off and get a mic. Chuckie T tells PNP, “Hey, hey, you ding dongs want to attack us from behind, hit us with whatever this is, destroy my best friend’s mom’s van! This has got to end!” Santana, Ortiz, if you want to fight in the parking lot, how about meeting them there next time?

Trent says the apology they want, take it and shove it up each other’s asses! Ortiz talks smack about Mama Sue! Trent says there’s no more hugs, no more fun, this is about hurting Santana and Ortiz to make mama proud! Who survives a vicious parking lot brawl?

 

AEW returns as Alex Marvez is at the Young Bucks room.

He knocks on the door but no response. He tries again, and still nothing. But then the Bucks open the door to SUPERKICK him!! Guess that’s a way of saying, “No comment.” How deep do the cracks go in the foundation of The Elite?

 

The Superbad Couple heads to the ring!

Schiavone is there waiting as the engaged Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford are here for the big announcement they hyped up at All Out. Schiavone congratulates them on behalf of everyone. Kip asks what he’s doing here. He was here to help with the announcement. No, if he was going to ask for commentary to join them, he’d ask JR because at least JR knows how to have a good time. Now go on and get out of the ring, “Timmy.” Kip mocks the booing fans and says he’s been “inundated” with questions about who gets to be The Best Man. Well he won’t take too long with that, here he is! It’s…

Wait, no, who? Puff, bro, what’re you doing here? Didn’t Kip tell him last night he’s The Best Man? No, Puff, no. Kip appreciated he subscribed to Kip’s Twitch, but he said he’s “the best.” Not the Best Man. Go! Go take up space, you’re so good at it! And make sure to resub each month. Okay, back on track here. THE Best Man is loyal, handsome and shares the passions Kip does. Here we go again. The REAL Best Man…! Brian Pillman Jr! He gets in the ring and Kip tells him to stop. What’s he doing here? He’s thanking Kip about that text how he’s The Best Man.

Whoa, Pillman, no. Kip wished him a happy birthday but he’s a little too hyped right now. It wasn’t “You’re the best man.” It’s “You’re the best, man.” Note the commas! It’s like BPJ was stalking Kip! They’re not even friends, bro! GET OUT, JUNIOR! Okay, third time’s the charm. It is Kip’s honor and privilege to introduce THE BEST MAN!! IT’S MIRO!! The Bulgarian Beast is Kip’s Best Man! The Twitch connection is live on television and the fans are loving it! Miro is handed the mic and fans chant, “Miro Day!” What? “Miro Day! Miro Day!” That has a good ring to it, huh? But okay. Ten years in the same house, under the same glass ceiling, with the same imaginary brass ring. Take that brass ring and shove it!!

Miro is here, and elite recognizes elite! The elite is the best! And of course Miro is going to be Kip’s best man. Not because he is a best man, but THE Best Man! The best gamer on Twitch, the best wrestler in the ring, beating up everyone and anyone whenever you tune in! “My name is Miro, and I am All Elite.” A statement made inside the major announcement! What does The Best joining AEW mean for the rest of the roster?

 

Schiavone has a sit-down interview with Hangman Page.

Hangman sets his drink down but asks if Schiavone wants one. No, Schiavone has work still to do. Right, yeah, okay. Schiavone brings up All Out and the loss to FTR. How does he feel? Alright, actually. Ribs are bruised, can’t really feel 100% in the humidity, but good otherwise. Schiavone doesn’t want the “athlete wrestler stock answer” here. What’s he really feeling? Well, All Out had fans. Not close, either, but you could see the looks on their faces and hear their voices. But Hangman couldn’t. For 30 minutes, no one made a sound. It seemed like they knew it was inevitable that Hangman and Kenny Omega would fall apart and lose.

But it wasn’t inevitable. FTR shouldn’t have been #1 contenders and that’s on Hangman. So he’s blaming himself? Well, Omega was right. Matt and Nick Jackson are the best, they should’ve won the gauntlet. Hangman lost two of his best friends, and was stupid enough to think that FTR walking like him, talking like him meant they were like him. He was stupid enough to think all that. Hangman knows he’s full of blood and bones like everyone else, but head to toe, he feels full of poison.

So after the match, Hangman surely saw the replay. Omega looked like he was going to hit Hangman, didn’t, and then stormed past even the Bucks. Where do they all go from here? Hangman and Omega have had problems, but also victories. And despite it all, they were the best tag team. But now it’s about climbing back up and reclaiming them. This will be their toughest test, but they will get through it, too. Is that really possible after Omega driving off Saturday? Or does time heal all wounds, even for The Elite?

 

No Holds Barred Tag: Joey Janela & Sonny Kiss VS Chris Jericho & Jake Hager!

The Bad Boy was used as a pawn in Le Champion’s game with Orange Cassidy. But the Concrete Rose got one over on Rock Hard Hager in the Casino Battle Royal! Now Jersey’s Finest combine their powers to see if they can take the fight to the Inner Circle in a match with no rules but to win!

The teams sort out and Janela starts against Jericho in a furious fist flying restart from last week! Jericho gets Janela in the corner, hammers and CHOPS him, then whips him corner to corner. Janela comes back to LARIAT and then hammer away on Jericho! Janela fires up, the fans fire up with him, but Jericho knees low and decks Janela. Jericho throws more hands, whips Janela, but Janela ducks and dodges to flying forearm! Tag to Kiss and the Jersey boys double whip to double flapjack hotshot! Jericho staggers, Janela and Kiss double bulldog! And double basement dropkick!

Fans fire up as Kiss sucker punches Hager off the apron! Kiss goes back to Jericho, drags him up but Jericho rakes Kiss’ eyes! Jericho talks smack to fans before throwing hands on Kiss. Jericho drags Kiss up to choke him on the ropes! The fans rally as Kiss endures since there’s no disqualifications here. Jericho whips Kiss, Kiss rolls off his back to heel kick him down! Tag to Janela, they each take a corner, but Hager gets in. Double missile dropkicks take the both out! Kiss and Janela pose, then clothesline Hager out! Kiss and Janela pose again, then Kiss goes out to Penalty Kick Hager! Janela DIVES to hit Jericho into railing! Fans fire up more as Janela starts looking for stuff.

Janela puts Jericho in before bringing out a chair! Fans like that as Janela brings the chair in and JAMS Jericho in the ribs. Janela SMACKS Jericho on the back! Jericho gets to a corner, Janela sits the chair up and goes corner to corner, for a step stool! Bad BOy in Motion gets a BACK SUPLEX on the chair! Jericho throws the chair down on Janela and soaks up the heat as we go picture in picture, #InnerCirclevsJanelaKiss.

Jericho paces about while Janela slow gets up. Jericho knees hard and Janela falls over. Jericho has the chair and JAMS it into Janela! Janela ends up in the ropes, tumbles down, and Jericho wedges the chair in a corner. Jericho drags Janela up, whips him in bug t Janela reverses and redirects, only to run into boots! Jericho tags Hager, they mug Janela on the ropes, then Hager DECKS Janela! Hager drags Janela up, ROCKS him with more rights, then brings him around to throw out of the ring HARD! Janela hits the floor, then Hager hits Kiss! Jericho goes after Kiss to whip him into railing just as hard! Hager gets a TABLE!

The Inner Circle set the table up, placing it by the stage and ramp. They go after Janela and Hager lifts, but Janela resists and gets free! Janela RAMS Hager into a post! Janela crawls away, Hager pursues and they’re in the ring as AEW returns to single picture. Hager drags Janela over, tags in Jericho, and Jericho runs corner to corner to BOOT Janela down! Hager talks trash to Janela and pushes him over. Jericho taunts the fans but the fans rally up for Janela. Jericho throws haymakers, Janela throws them back! Jericho knees low, but Janela sends him into the corner chair! Both men are down, the fans rally up, hot tags to Hager and Kiss! Kiss dodges Hager, dropkick flips and enziguris!

Kiss comes back to whip but Hager reverses to run. Kiss boots him, but Kiss goes up for Hager to drag him down! Kiss does the splits, rolls Hager up, TWO! Kiss SUPERKICKS Hager down! Cover, Jericho breaks it fast! Jericho has a trash can but Kiss kicks low! Kiss throws Jericho to the ramp, Hager CLOBBERS Kiss from behind! Hager uses the trash can and sets it on Kiss. Hager goes to the corner for the HAGER BOMB, but Kiss throws the can into him! Janela clotheslines Hager and himself out to the ramp! Janela goes after Jericho with fast hands! Jericho hits low, and whips Janela into the lights!

Jericho drags Janela up, catapults him to Hager for a SPINE BUSTER through the table!! Janela is down in wooden wreckage as the INner Circle fires up! But Kiss LEAPS to crossbody them both on the ramp! Hager staggers up, Kiss clotheslines him and himself into the ring! Kiss drags Jericho in and wedges him in the corner! Kiss handspring back kicks Hager, then handsprings to AXES AND OHS on Jericho! ROLLING ELBOW on Hager!! The fans are fired up with Kiss as he pushes the chair aside! Kiss goes up top, aims at Hager, but Jericho uses the fire extinguisher! Hager URENAGES! Arm and Head Triangle smothers Kiss into a cover, The Inner Circle wins!

Winners: Jake Hager & Chris Jericho, by pinfall

Jericho saved Hager so he could put the #BigHurt on Kiss. Jericho gets a mic and is angry that it didn’t come online fast enough. But then he wants the fans to “give us some love, baby!” The Inner Circle had a terrible night at All Out! Hager, Santana and Ortiz lost the Casino Battle Royal, Sammy Guevara is at home all hurt, and Jericho’s boots still squish from the mimosa! But that’s the past, this is the future. A new page, a new chapter. Jake and Jericho will build up wins in the tag division to impress the suits and get a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Championships! Le Champion and the “human brick wall” will make us all bow down! Does FTR have yet another team to worry about in an already powerful tag division?

 

AEW hears from MJF in his campaign room.

“I should have a belt around my waist right now. And I’m not talking Ferragamo. But Dictator Jon decided that he needed to cheat and use an illegal maneuver, like a coward.” But of course he cheated! You can’t blame a scorpion for stinging you, because it is in their nature. But MJF has found who he can blame. “This campaign!” The campaign was to create change, give hope to the hopeless, and make him champion! But they all BLEW IT! They’re all FIRED! GET OUT! Johnson leaves, and NOW Nina smiles. Well guess what? He’s sick of her crooked teeth and stupid face! GET OUT! Nina cries as she runs away. Gum guy gives him the gum one last time and leaves.

Wardlow speaks up, “But, sir-” OH NOW MJF is “Sir.” Where was that when Wardlow blew it for MJF!? Was MJF “Sir” when he lost the title and Wardlow threw the Dynamite Diamond Ring about as well as he can read?! Wardlow gets mad and MJF laughs as he asks, “Do we have a problem?” The last time they checked, Tony Khan doesn’t sign his checks. MJF does. Anyone else would’ve fired Wardlow, but not MJF. MJF is the only one on this planet that sees his potential that cares about him, and is his “friend.” So get it together, or he and his family are out on the street. So, is there a problem? No…

Good! Because for a second, it seemed like they did. Now, there’s no time for aggression and anger. This is the time to plan how to get on top, where they belong. Will Wardlow stay loyal to the real dictator around here?

 

AEW returns to hear from Jon Moxley.

“As if I didn’t have enough on my plate on Saturday already, I see out of the corner of my eye on a backstage monitor that Lance Archer was the last man standing. Wins the battle royal and earns himself a title shot.” So Moxley says to himself, “SON OF A B*TCH!” Things aren’t getting any easier, but they’re not supposed to. Nothing worth it is easy, and that includes the world title. You can’t talk your way into it, you can’t campaign for it, and you can’t litigate your way into it. The only way you become AEW World Champion is to crawl through a mile of crap and climb a mountain on the other side. That is why Moxley is THE number one in this sport!

Now, you look at Archer, you can see it all on paper. Moxley might as well go into a wood chipper, right? But what you can see is not enough. It’s what Moxley feels in his heart, in his soul, deep down in his guts! Moxley feels and knows he is unstoppable. You may look at Archer and see a monster, but Moxley sees a man that. But when the time comes and their paths cross with the title on the line, the only question you need to ask is, “Do you really wanna bet against me?” Moxley has beaten big, bad men before, but is he ready for the biggest and the baddest yet?

 

FTR and Tully Blanchard are in the ring!

The AEW Tag Team Champions and their legendary manager have the rest of the AEW Tag Division around the ring to “celebrate” their win at All Out. Beers are handed out, there are balloons and a cake, and Tully speaks. “Ladies and gentlemen, you have heard a lot of things from a lot of people.” You heard from Moxley, the greatest world champion. If he’s the greatest singles champion, then FTR are the greatest tag team champions in the world! #FearTheRevelation! That is what happened on 9/5/2020! The degree was 117 in the ring, and these two men battled for 30 minutes in it! Hangman Page and Kenny Omega fought hard to try and keep the titles, but at the end, that 31st minute, it was Cash and Dax, and they became THE BEST TAG TEAM IN THE WORLD!

It’s true! AEW has the deepest tag division in the world, and the best! Just look at everyone around the ring! There is talent from top to bottom! No slouches in this division! FTR may be undefeated, but they had to fight for every single one of those wins. Facing SCU’s Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels was a dream match! They grew up watching those two! Imagine if they were in their primes! If this was 20 years ago, who knows who would’ve won that! And then Private Party! What can they say? Not much, actually. But hey! FTR represents THE deepest, most talented tag division in the world. That means FTR are the locker room leaders! They are the #TopGuys in AEW!

And speaking of top guys, Billy Gunn is a tag legend! But don’t think because you are in some random hall of fame that he and his son can hop the line or something. Ain’t gonna happen! Then next week, Jurassic Express get their “once in a lifetime opportunity” in facing the absolute best, you’re welcome. But NOT for the belts! Maybe if they win, maybe they get that chance. But don’t think FTR will ever let “some comedy gimmick, a cosplay Tarzan and a dumbass dinosaur” ever run this division! Ain’t gonna happen! Earn your title shots! The teams they’re insulting are getting up on the apron and in the ring! FTR says this is no time for a fight, this is a celebration!

FTR proposes a toast to themselves, and “the dumbass dinosaur!” Cash throws a bunch of napkins in Luchasaurus’ face!? But they don’t see Jungle Boy on the other corner! JB LEAPS in, but they get clear! Luchasaurus double choke grips, but FTR breaks free and runs for it! Tully regroups with them, but Marko Stunt has the cooler! He and the others dump the ice on the champs! The tag division laugh at their champs and have their cake, but will FTR make them #FeelTheRepercussions?

 

AEW returns with Taz on commentary.

Taz is here to inform us that Darby Allin is back! Oh wait, it’s Ricky Starks pretending to be him again. “Guys, guys… It finally happened. I got injured! I dislocated my pinkie and I got thumbtacks in my food and now I can’t skateboard with my friends!” Starks says Darby rights it on his jacket, his board and everywhere else, “Darby Allin is Relentless!” Or is he just reckless? There’s a reason why no one wants to tag with Darby to take on Team Taz and why he just sits all alone backstage! There is a reason Darby is sitting at home now, hurt and alone: he’s reckless. Darby doesn’t know what relentless is, but Starks does. Starks is Absolute! And next time Darby shows up, Starks will absolutely and relentlessly beat Darby’s ass!

 

Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Taynara Conti!

The Vicious Vixen is slowly preparing the Native Beast for her return to the AEW Women’s World Championship scene. But the Brazilian Blackbelt is hungry now that she’s officially signed with AEW! Will Tay find a way to win against Nyla 1v1? Or will the patient #1 contender take her time tearing Tay to pieces?

The bell rings, Tay and Nyla rush each other and Tay fires off fast hands! Nyla hits low then powers Tay to a corner! Nyla rams her shoulder in over and over, then TOSSES Tay across the way! Nyla storms over but Tay Eddie Gordo kicks then Question Mark kicks in return! Nyal stays up. Tay gets around and shoves her into buckles, then clubs her on the back! Roll up, TWO! Tay keeps her cool and blocks the kick to drag Nyla down to a kneebar and heel hook! Nyla powers up as Vickie shouts and coaches her. Nyla rakes at Tay’s eyes then stomps her down! Tay staggers up, Nyla runs in and corner splashes! Nyla shoves Tay out of the ring, then Vickie gets a cheap shot!

Nyla goes out to fetch Tay while fans boo. Vickie mocks them that she can’t hear them as Nyla RAMS Tay into railing! AEW goes picture in picture, #CONTIvsROSE.

Nyla drags Tay up and scoops her to her shoulder, but Tay slips out to shove Nyla into railing! Tay then POSTS Nyla and KNEES her into the apron! Tay keeps going, putting Nyla in the ring and hurrying up top. Tay leaps and crossbodies! Cover, TWO! Nyla still has a lot left and Tay grows frustrated. Tay back kicks then BOOTS Nyla down, then stomps away at the ropes! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Tay is further frustrated, but the crowd rallies behind her as she judo throws Nyla down. Tay sits Nyla up, Nyla ducks one kick but not the heel kick! Nyla gets mad as Tay kicks more, but Nyla blocks a kick to reel Tay in for a LARIAT!

Nyla stomps Tay, drags her around and clamps onto the arm. Tay endures as Nyla pulls on the fingers and even BITES them! The ref sees that and reprimands, Nyla stops but Vickie cheers. Nyla drags Tay up to elbow her in the head! Nyla drags Tay up, scoops her and slams her! Then drops the leg! Nyla covers, TWO! Now Nyla grows frustrated as AEW returns to single picture. Vickie cheers Nyla on but the crowd rallies for Tay. Nyla whips Tay to the corner, Tay goes up and boots Nyla back! Tay adjusts, has the wristlcok and springboards to a sunset flip! Nyla stays up, drags Tay back up, for a two hand SLAM!

Fans boo but Nyal choke grips Tay. Tay grabs the arm and tries an armbar takedown but Nyla stays up. Tay has the modified arm triangle, but Vickie shouts at Nyla. Nyla powers around, dead lifts Tay for the BEAST BOMB!! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Vickie gets in to celebrate with her client, shrieking, “EXCUSE MEEE!!” The Vicious Vixens are making a statement! They are not going anywhere! Nyla drags Tay back up but here comes Hikaru Shida! The AEW Women’s World Champion has her kendo stick and holds Vickie and Nyla at bay. Vickie tells Nyla they can wait. Will this rematch happen when Vickie says Nyla is good and ready?

 

AEW has updates on The Elite.

The Bucks have each been fined $5000 for a total of 10 grand for the superkicks on Alex Marvez. And there is a medical update on Cody Rhodes, to be given as soon as the main event is over, provided there is time remaining.

 

Jim Ross had a sit down interview with Kenny Omega.

An interesting week for Omega, to say the least. How has he processed everything that happened at All Out? Omega was a champion, now he’s not. What do they expect of him? To crawl into a corner and cry himself to sleep? These things happen. When you’re a professional who’s done this for years at the highest level, you win some, you lose some. Just part of the game. But it seemed like, at parts of the journey to All Out, that Omega and Hangman weren’t united. Then the bell rings, and they’re like a rocket. That’s just it. They had a chemistry. There was something there that held them together, there was a magic. It’s why Omega couldn’t say no. It felt like this is what Omega was meant to do in AEW.

Omega had expectations of being the singles star put upon him. Of being a top champion, the ace of AEW. But he didn’t have a direction until he and Hangman gave it a try. Maybe Omega could be more than just a singles wrestler. He has fans worldwide and earned all his accolades and adulation, and the most important thing, respect. So then, JR respectfully asks, what is next? Do he and Hangman try again? Is that not even on the table anymore? Is Omega going to try for the singles titles? Omega says there is such a deep tag team division, perhaps one of the best in all of wrestling. For Omega and Hangman to get to where they were, it took a lot of self-discovery and digging deep.

The part Omega learned about Hangman is not something he liked. Omega is proud of what they accomplished, proud of their run, but if Hangman wants to try a rematch or even reconcile with the Bucks, he better make other plans. There are things Omega wants to do, is destined to do. He gave time to the team, but now he’s returning to singles action to give fans what they were hoping to see. How will Hangman respond to this decision? Can Omega climb up the ranks this late in the game?

AEW TNT Championship: Brodie Lee w/ The Dark Order VS Dustin Rhodes!

All Out saw The Exalted One and the Natural lead their teams in an 8 Man Tag war, and it would be Dustin’s team winning one for his brother, Cody!

The Dark Order applaud but the fans boo. Brodie mockingly tells Cody to “come home.” Will the American Nightmare

 

AEW has that BREAKING NEWS report!

Cody Rhodes wants to say “go big or go home.” But he is injured, so he should go home, right? Or maybe not? Maybe we just do something bigger. That is what they’re about to do. They’re about to do something never seen before on television. They’ve created their own quarantine bubble in Georgia to shoot “the most extreme, most fearless, one of a kind talent show ever. And it all happens here.” Cody introduces the world to The Go Big Show, and it’s host, Bert Kreischer!

Burt thanks Cody and explains that The Go Big Show is a competition series like no other! There is no singing or dancing, “just action packed, death defying feats of strength and talent.” And this crowd of tailgaters is more than ready to see it all! Every week, real Americans compete to blow your mind with over-the-top acts. They take big risks but get big rewards, because the winner will earn $100,000!! The judges are Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Nettles, Snoop Dogg, and Cody himself! The only rule: go big, or go home. Coming soon to TBS!


My Thoughts:

Well, weird announcement at the very end aside, this was a great episode! I liked the opening segment where MJF and Jericho arrive, both think their match was the buzz of the wrestling fandom, and thought the other was the bigger jerk. I am glad MJF did as I expected, completely scrapping his campaign team and adding to the tension between him and Wardlow. There has to be a point where Wardlow clobbers MJF and goes on his own. Archer and Moxley had good promos to hype up their coming title match, and I like that they’re putting this for the Anniversary Show in October. The Anniversary Show needs to be big, is going to be big, and that is a big start to the card.

AEW definitely does have the deepest 2v2 tag division of wrestling in the world, so it isn’t really boasting for that from the FTR celebration segment. Kingston keeping the Lucha Brothers together is great character work, and I like that he just throws out there that he didn’t actually get eliminated. I did not notice if he came out through a bottom or middle rope, but who knows, it could come up on the road to the Anniversary Show. Jurassic Express and Lucha Brothers have an incredible opener, and I am really surprised to see Jurassic Express wins. They are definitely fan favorites so it’s great to see them getting a match with FTR next week. I feel like FTR might end up having to win with dirty tactics like Tully or even Shawn Spears helping out to further establish this stable Tully has created.

But on the note of the very competitive tag division, do we really need another team? Jericho and Hager had a really good No Holds Barred Tag with Kiss and Janela, but shouldn’t Santana and Ortiz be the Inner Circle’s main tag team? I get PNP VS Best Friends is the story, and that their Parking Lot Brawl Tag is going to be great stuff, but then shouldn’t that mean the winners of that move up? Omega and Hangman are officially broken up and going back to singles wrestling, which could and should totally lead to them eventually facing each other for a shot at a title, but we don’t need to throw in a new team of singles guys to make up for that. I’ve always liked Jericho, but I feel like part of MJF saying Jericho will one day get the world title back should’ve meant Jericho stays in the singles division.

The Bucks kicking Marvez was actually a great segment to me. Their edge is only getting meaner, and I’m pretty sure the fines will only make things worse. Kip Sabian’s Best Man segment was hilarious, but I feel like they used the same pun twice. “You’re the best!” and “You’re the best, man!” were basically the same joke so just doing it once with Pillman would’ve been fine. But holy machka, Batman, MIRO is in AEW! Shots were fired on WWE, but in Miro’s case, he has every right to be upset with WWE and Vince. Miro and Kip are going to be great as buddies, who knows how that wedding segment goes now. Maybe it’ll be part of the Anniversary Show to make it feel bigger.

Starks had another hilarious Darby parody, and I like that he made a point of Darby not having friends to tag with (outside of Moxley that one time). I wonder if someone new or yet to be utilized actually does join Darby against Team Taz, that’d be cool. Matt Sydal was at All Out, and if his recovery from that botched Shooting Star is any indication, maybe he’s willing to be reckless and relentless with Darby. Matt Hardy had a great promo to let us know he is totally okay now, and I hope he gets to come back in time for that Anniversary Show. Cassidy VS Angelico was a good match but clearly more a set-up for the announcement of the Parking Lot Brawl. If Hager and Jericho are going to be a new team, guess Blood & Guts blow-off is off the table for right now, which is a shame but plans change all the time.

I like the big stuff for next week’s Thursday-for-now Dynamite, with the NWA-AEW crossover continuing as Thunder Rosa defends her title. Rosa VS Ivelisse is going to be a great match, but much like Shida defending her title at All Out, Rosa surely retains her title so she rebounds. Nyla VS Conti was a great showing for Conti, but of course Vickie gets involved at some point, and naturally Nyla wins in the end. Shida making the save is great and teases that their rematch could be coming for the Anniversary Show. I feel like Tay should also bring this up to Anna Jay. They were tag partners, Jay handed Tay the Dark Order folder, so Tay should be upset Jay didn’t do something to help her.

Then the main event, Dustin and Brodie had a really good match, very gritty with them slugging it out and showing their big man speed. I was a bit confused as to why it was only Silver out there with Brodie, but with Silver nearly costing Brodie and then the rest of the Dark Order hurrying out after, I got it. Brodie is upset with Cabana still in his continuing Vince parody, holding a grudge against someone who doesn’t do what he says and all that. I’m again curious as to Uno being there for Cabana when no one else is, but Brodie retains so that Cody, when he’s back from filming The Go-Big Show, will want his own payback, probably for the Anniversary Show or even Full Gear.

My Score: 9.2/10

Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal!

Another year, another battle for that coveted $150,000 diamond ring! But things are a little different, as Maxwell Jacob Friedman, our NEW AEW World Champion, has the prerogative to not participate in this match. Instead, think of this more as a #1 contender’s battle royal with the winner getting to choose when and where they face MJF for that ring. Ricky Starks vows that when he wins this match, he’ll make next week’s title match into a Winner Takes All! Will this be an Absolute Victory for Ricky Starks?

Winner: Ricky Starks (#1 contender to the Dynamite Diamond Ring)

But to rain on the parade already is MJF! The AEW World Champion and #TripleB, the Big Burberry Belt, are here with a mic as fans boo hard as they can. The fans then cheer on Starks and MJF smirks. MJF tells Starks, “I’ll be with you in one second.” MJF then says, “Bryan Danielson, a little birdy told me you didn’t wanna show up tonight, and I think I know the real reason why. The real reason why is because you’re terrified of me. And I don’t blame ya, bud. After what I did to your boy, Willy Reegs, I’d be scared, too.”

Fans boo but MJF says, “Because I’m a bad, bad man. And that’s why in a week from now, I’m gonna be a FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, F-F-F-FOUR-TIME beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion. And I will still be the holder of the grandest prize of ’em all, the Triple B, baby! Now Richard, people seem to really like you around here, huh?” Fans cheer Starks on again, and MJF says “They talk about you like you’re some underutilized god of professional wrestling. And trust me, you are very talented, you really are. But you wanna know the truth, bud? Here’s the truth, Absolute.” Fans tell MJF to STFU but he just shrugs that off.

MJF says the truth is that in comparison to MJF, Starks is the Absolute drizzling sh*t! Or should MJF say, “You’re a roody poo candy ass!” After all, Starks stole literally everything else from that guy. But no offense, Richard, you’re just “a Dollar Store Dwayne.” So MJF will call Starks “The Pebble.” So here’s what happens next week in the main event of Dynamite, little Pebble. Fans chant for the “PEBBLE~! PEBBLE~!” MJF says he’s gonna put The Pebble in his pocket, hop in his brand new Porsche, because unlike all the “simple-minded humanoids” of Austin, MJF is rich. MJF will drive Pebble to the nearest body of water, take him out of his pocket, and skip “your scrawny little pigeon-toed ass all the way back to Billy Corgan’s NWA so you can wrestle on YouTube where you belong!”

Fans boo but Starks just smirks. MJF says “Facts don’t care about your feelings, Texas!” But MJF doesn’t care that Starks is Absolute, because MJF is a Generational Talent, and his Reign of Terror has only just begun. MJF soaks up the heat and then Starks pushes right past him to get a mic of his own. Fans cheer on Starks but MJF tells them all to shut up. Starks tells “Maxi Pad”, which fans now chant at MJF, that he should’ve expected a fifth-rate Roddy Piper to come out here and try to steal the spotlight. Oh~, he trashed the city! OH~! He trashed the fans! How much more shtick does MJF got? Cuz the low hanging fruit is running dry!

Starks says every week, MJF walks out here smelling like paint thinner and ass, having spray tanned his eczema to where if he took his shirt off, his back would look like he laid on an ant colony for seven hours. MJF has his crappy shoes, pants that are never ironed, a shirt that is too small, that stupid scarf, and that even dumber haircut, and he acts like he’s better than Starks?! Give us a break!! Fans are fired up hearing that! “Everything about you screams, ‘Cheap.’ The cheap suits, the cheap shoes, the cheap heat. Oh my God, and you are our new AEW Champion, huh? Well here’s the thing. With that AEW Championship comes a big responsibility that you know nothing about!

“The difference between you and me is that when these people got behind me, I gave them a reason to keep going. When they put faith in you, you let them down. When Regal put faith in you, you let him down. But brother, when it comes to Ricky, I delivery on time, every time, every night, every week, every month! And you can take your little ass to Greece for three months because oh~, you didn’t get paid enough! Oh~, you got out politicked by somebody smarter than you! But the fact remains is that I’ve been here, busting my ass. You wanna talk responsibility? Let’s talk about the fact that you avoid responsibility! You avoid any type of pressure.

“I show up to sign meet ‘n’ greets, where you, you don’t care! You just blow it off because hey! Everybody hates Max, so he has nothing to lose, right? Yeah, well, guess what, buddy? There comes a lot of responsibility when it comes to people actually liking you. And beside your nose being a lot darker than the rest of your body, me on the other hand, I live with dignity, I live with respect. You know nothing about that! When I lived in my car in South Austin, guess what I was doing? I was grinding! I knew the responsibility of taking care of myself! When it comes to that woman right there, it’s MY responsibility to get her a car, to get her a house.

“And you think because you paid people, because you kissed ass, that Maxwell ‘I’m better than you,’ you can get whatever you want? Please, gimme a break.” Fans are all fired up! Starks tells MJF that next week is a BIG deal. Starks is putting up and shutting MJF up for once in his miserable, narcissistic, punk-ass little life! MJF doesn’t deserve the title but Starks does! Wrestling on YouTube? Guess what? Been there, done that, busted his ass to get here! He never needed a name to make it here, and he doesn’t need one to beat MJF’s ass! He is Ricky Starks, he is stand ten toes down right here.

Next week, Starks smacks that mole of MJF’s neck, stomps a new hole right into MJF, and then he takes that title! Fans are thunderous for Starks as he says he’s doing MJF a favor he’s never had done in his life: Starks takes the responsibility off this “little boy’s” plate. MJF LOW BLOWS Starks! Fans boo as MJF takes off the belt, the scarf, and brings out the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF puts the ring on, takes aim, and fans shout “F YOU MAX!” But Starks dodges to SPEAR!! Fans are THUNDEROUS as MJF falls out of his shoes and then falls out of the ring! Starks holds up the world title, will he be holding that and the Dynamite Diamond Ring at the end of Winter is Coming?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“May 12th, 2021 was when I lost the TNT Championship. From that time ’til now, I feel like a lot of people have all said to me, ‘Darby Allin is being slept on. Darby Allin is forgotten about.’ Well it’s up to me to wake everyone up, and I’m gonna win that TNT Championship. I said that this crowd chants one thing, ‘Joe is gonna kill~ you.’ Well Joe, you’re gonna have to bury me with that TNT Championship, because I am not leaving Austin, Texas without it.”

Samoa Joe responds.

“Darby Allin, the curious little dead boy. I know exactly what you see when you look at me. You see a crucible that you wanna put yourself through. You see the violence that I inflict and you say to yourself, ‘That is a trial I can endure.’ Well, Darby, tonight you’re gonna learn that curiosity has a price that is about to get real expensive.” Will the Relentless Underdog put it all on the line just to get back that title? Or will he fail to dethrone the King of Pro-Wrestling Television?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“You think last week got a little outta hand? I don’t. In fact, I’m starting to really, really like The Cowboy, Hangman. Because he fell off his horse, dusted himself off, and got right back in the saddle, and he did his talking with his fists. There’s not enough of that around here. There’s too much talking. This is All Elite Wrestling, not All Elite Talking. There is no Blackpool Microphone Club. This is COMBAT! This is the sport of kings! Tonight, myself, Wheeler, Claudio, this Weekend at Final Battle, this Friday night on Rampage, we bring back 100 proof, in-your-face, ass-kicking wrestling! Jericho Appreciation Society. I’m so over the Jericho Appreciation Society.

“I’m gonna be out there tonight, just to make sure there’s no sports entertainment shenanigans. And this weekend, we put the JAS in our rearview mirror for good! Hangman Page, you want another piece? You know where to find me.” The Maniac heads out, but will he be able to focus on the JAS with the Cowboy coming for him?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS Darby Allin!

#TwoBeltJoe has been intimidating and brutal even when he’s had no belts. How much more vicious will he become in order to keep his throne as King of TV?

The introductions are made, the TNT title is raised, and we see if Darby wins, or even survives!

The bell rings and fans rally as Darby and Joe stare down. Fans do sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Joe steps up to Darby, daring him to do something. So Darby fires off fast hands! Joe puts Darby in a corner, but Darby dodges him to fire off hands again! Joe shoves Darby away, but Darby SHOTGUNS Joe out of the ring! Darby keeps moving to DIVE, but Joe casually moves aside and Darby crashes into railing! Joe grins as he goes back for Darby while fans lose their minds. Joe CLUBS Darby, drags him up, and sits him on the apron to then SWING him into the railing! And SWING into the apron! And back into railing!

Fans are torn but Joe soaks it all up. Joe goes back for Darby, and he tears up the floor mats! Joe drags Darby up and smacks him off the apron. Darby flounders around in a daze, but Joe drags him back up. Joe puts Darby in the ring, just to drag him out after refreshing the ring count. Joe then hits Darby with a BIG back suplex to the floor! Darby writhes, but at least that was a padded part. Joe refreshes the count himself now, and he drags Darby back up. Joe brings Darby to the bare patch now, and fans boo while the ref counts. Darby fights the lift but Joe still gets Darby up! Darby bends Joe’s fingers to get free!

Darby runs in, but Joe POWERSLAMS Darby to the bare concrete!! Joe shouts at Darby, “Do you wanna die, Darby?! HUH!?!” The ref checks Darby while AEW goes picture in picture.

Joe leaves Darby behind while he clutches an arm and his ribs. Joe returns, having refreshed the count, and he puts Darby in the ring. Joe stalks Darby, mockingly applauds, and then drags Darby up. Joe CHOPS Darby and he flops down into a corner. Joe stands on Darby’s neck, the ref counts, and Joe lets off at 4. Joe smirks as he paces around. Darby drags himself up in a corner but not very far. Joe drags Darby up but Darby throws body shots! Darby runs, but Joe CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Joe is fired up and he drags Darby into a neck wrench! Darby endures, even as Joe looms over him. Joe throws Darby down but fans rally up.

Darby flounders about and it amuses Joe. Darby kicks back, manages to kick harder, and he BOOTS Joe away! Darby stands to throw more body shots, but Joe HEADBUTTS Darby down! Joe snarls, he drags Darby back up, and he dumps Darby to the apron. Joe drags Darby up as Dynamite returns to single picture. Joe JABS Darby, and then runs him side to side to POST him! Fans lose their minds again and Joe pretends he can’t see where Darby went. Doc Sampson checks Darby and the ring count starts. Fans count along while Joe just strolls around the ring and flexes. Darby is somehow okay to continue, and he crawls his way over at 5 of 10.

Darby flounders up at 7 and in at 8! Fans cheer but Joe is annoyed. Joe asks Darby what more has to happen. Joe kicks him around, Darby gets mad. Darby SLAPS Joe and it staggers him! Darby runs, gets around, but Joe hits an atomic drop! And then runs to BOOT Darby down! Then he SENTONS! Cover, TWO!! Darby is still in this though he goes to the apron, and Joe can’t believe it! But then Joe builds speed! But Joe has to bail out as Darby slides back in! Darby PLANCHAS, but into a fireman’s carry! Darby fights free to RAM Joe into steel steps! Darby then goes up the corner for a SUPER COFFIN DROP!! Both men are down and fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Darby staggers about, but he pushes Joe into the ring. Darby keeps moving, COFFIN- NO, the splash is caught to a SLEEPER! But Darby drops to KICK Joe away! Darby slips around, THROWBACK STUNNER!! Joe stays up so Darby hops on, CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!!! Joe survives but Darby has new life! Fans are giving a standing ovation as Joe and Darby rise.

But Darby BITES Joe’s forehead!! Joe falls back, Darby adjusts, COFFIN DROP!! Into the COQUINA CLUTCH!!!

Darby flails, he reaches out, but the sleeper and body scissors squeezes tight! Darby has a wild look in his eyes, until those eyes roll back! Darby is OUT, Joe wins!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (still AEW TNT Champion)

Darby fought his heart out, but we are still in the #TwoBeltJoe Era! Darby manages to stand up again, and he says he’s not dead! Joe has to put him down for him to stop! Darby dares Joe to keep fighting, but Joe HEADBUTTS Darby down! Joe grabs Darby’s own skateboard and he brings it over. Fans boo as Joe scares off the ref with the board! Joe then drags Darby up, puts the board down wheels up, and he puts Darby on the corner. Joe tucks Darby in! MUSCLE BUSTER on the wheels!!! Darby isn’t even moving, but Joe still puts the COQUINA CLUTCH back on!! The ref reprimands, more refs rush out but HERE COMES WARDLOW!!

Wardlow rushes to the ring and Joe runs away! Fans cheer on “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” as he reminds Joe that they’re not through with each other! Joe moves on to ROH Final Battle to defend his ROH World Television Championship against Juice Robinson, will Joe make it through The Booster only to find Wardlow’s World waiting for him?

 

Backstage interview with Kip Sabian and Orange Cassidy.

Tony Schiavone says there is a No Physicality Agreement in place as these two are here to talk. What is on Cassidy’s mind? Cassidy doesn’t know what Kip is doing, but he doesn’t need to do this. If he wants a title shot, just ask. Kip says, “How convenient, my sweet little Clementine. You wait until an unprovoked attack by Dustin Rhodes. I’m hurt. You just don’t want me at my best.” Cassidy says if Kip isn’t gonna fight this Friday on Rampage, then find someone who can. Kip ponders the idea, and heads out. Cassidy asks Schiavone if that’s a yes. Seems so. Then who will crazy Kip find as a Superbad proxy to take on the All-Atlantic Champion?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Initially, what started out as a deliberate desecration of the legacy of ROH has now led me to become the greatest ROH Champion of all time. Oh, the irony. Claudio, you don’t have the belief that you can beat me when it counts and become the ROH World Champion once again. Isn’t that true? That is why I’m gonna beat you at Final Battle, and it is why you’re gonna have to join the Jericho Appreciation Society. But Claudio, I am telling you this right now, it is going to be the best thing for you. I am looking so forward to taking you under my wing, and most importantly, I am looking so forward to beating you at Final Battle. I’ll see you then, Claudio. All Honor The Ocho.”

 

Jake Hager & Daniel Garcia w/ Sammy Guevara VS Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta w/ Jon Moxley!

Speaking of the war between JAS and BCC, another battle happens here in Austin! Will “Rock Hard” Hager & the “Dragonslayer” use sports entertainment to gain the momentum before the Final Battle? Or will the Swiss Superman & Decoder use a pro-wrestling solution on their JAS problem?

The teams sort out and Yuta starts against Garcia in a preview of their ROH Pure Championship rematch set for Saturday. They circle, then Garcia tags to Hager. Hager and Yuta circle, but then Hager has everyone hold on. Because he’s brings out the purple bucket hat, and throws it to Claudio! Hager says Claudio needs to get used to wearing that.

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, by pinfall

Fans fire up and Moxley joins his brothers in the club to celebrate! Tony Schiavone joins them all to interview them. He knows they just got a big win ahead of a big night on Saturday, but they have to talk about what happened at Full Gear. Here is an interview Schiavone did with William Regal a few weeks back that might explain some things.

The footage plays and Schiavone talks with his “long time friend,” Regal. Regal says it will be 30 years in January. Full Gear was unbelievable, but Schiavone wanted to know about how all that transpired. Regal told Schiavone before that “people are only going to see this if something bad happens to me. And when you’re somebody like me, and spent your life being as horrible as I have, you’re always expecting something bad to happen.” Schiavone says Regal is the Villain of Villains. Well, Regal took great exception to what MJF did to Schiavone. And MJF seems to be made about emails and this and that, so Regal just gave MJF what he wanted.

MJF is world champion now. But do you know that saying, “Be careful what you wish for?” Because now, everyone in the company will be chasing MJF. Regal realized a few months ago that the three veteran members of the Blackpool Combat Club don’t need Regal around anymore. He’s “surplus to requirements.” But he knew they wouldn’t let him go, either. But he needed to show them why they don’t need him, and why they can teach Wheeler Yuta how to become the greatest professional wrestler in the world, because they’ve all got that capability. “But you have to lead by example.”

So hopefully, and Regal knows he will, because Moxley is a very calculating man, Moxley will understand this. “The reason I did what I did, and to lead by example, was to teach you the final thing that I could ever teach you. Always stay one step ahead, and make sure you always keep eyes in the back of your head. I’m Blackpool Combat Club ’til the day I die. Fellas, it’s been emotional.” Lord William Regal’s message ends, and Schiavone says that was two weeks ago, before what MJF did. He knows they’re all a bit speechless, but does anyone have a comment?

Moxley takes the mic to say, “All I know is one thing for sure. The three men in this ring live and breathe for the sport of professional wrestling! You can call us whatever you want, but December 10th, ROH Final Battle, this war with the Jericho Appreciation Society is OVER! These men make a statement. This Friday night on Rampage, I make a statement! I’m gonna challenge any wrestler in the world to come right here in this ring and find out just where you stand on the food chain. This Friday on Rampage, I make a statement! At Final Battle, they make a statement! Pro-wrestling is about to make a serious statement!”

The fans fire up hearing that from Moxley, but who will step up to his Open Challenge? And can Claudio and Yuta both take back the ROH titles to restore that honor to those championships?

 

The House of Black speak.

Malakai says, “This company has allowed itself to be corrupted. Corrupted by people that point fingers at others while still holding the shovel in their hands that they used to dig the graves for others. And now, it is sick and it is dying. And perhaps it is time for myself and the House to… put down this corruption. Ms. Hart, what is the crime?” Julia steps out from the shadows to say, “The crime is treason.” Malakai asks “Mr. Matthews, what is the verdict?” Buddy walks out from the shadows to say, “Verdict: War.” “And Mr. King, what is the sentence?” Brody walks out to say, “It as if you throw a side of beef to a pack of wild dogs. We will tear the meat from the bone. The sentence is extermination.”

Malakai says it has been decided. “To anyone that has an issue with what we have done over the past two weeks, or anything that’s been said here, well next week Wednesday, come one, come all.” The House of Black drifts into the shadows, who will be the first to be torn apart?

 

AEW returns with Jamie Hayter’s sit-down interview.

Tony Schiavone sits with the undisputed AEW Women’s World Champion, and he notes that last week, she asked the question, “Why not a sit-down interview with me?” Well, here we are, and the floor is hers. Hayter says Saraya got a sit-down, cool. Toni Storm got one, alright. But not with Hayter? That baffles her. So no, Schiavone, you ask her something. What does he wanna know? Well, Schiavone notes the AEW Women’s Division has been blossoming. Great competitors are showing up, and this week on Rampage, we will see Hikaru Shida VS The Bunny for Shida’s Regina di Wave Championship. What are Hayter’s thoughts on the division?

Hayter says it is getting “interesting.” But unfortunately for everyone else, Hayter is on top now. And everyone is trying to grind their way to the top to get her title. She will do her duty as champion to be both reigning and defending. Hayter will have a very, very close look at that Regina de Wave title match on Rampage. “Thing is, it doesn’t really hold a candle to the AEW Women’s World Championship, does it?” Schiavone says nothing does, and Hayter agrees. This is AEW. But Hayter will “give one of those girls the opportunity of a lifetime. Whoever wins that match, they get to wrestle me for the AEW Women’s World Championship, if they dare.”

Schiavone says Hayter’s going to be a fighting champion and she says that’s right. She is a fighting champion, “and a bloody good one at that.” Who will be the Regina di Wave Champion after Rampage? And will they accept Hayter’s challenge to them?

 

Six Woman Tag: Jade Cargill & The Baddies VS Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Kiera Hogan!

The UN-DE-FEA-TED AEW TBS Champion got her belt back but got rid of the weak link, as she puts it. Red Velvet is back, Leila Grey is still around, but Kiera Hogan got kicked to the curb! Will Kiera get revenge on #ThatBitch with help from the Coach & Student? Or will Jade be undefeated even in trios action?

The teams sort out, Jade starts against Skye. The fans rally up but Jade says no, she’s above Skye. Tag to Velvet and Velvet gets her return to action already. Velvet and Skye tie up, they go around, and Velvet wrenches to a wristlock. Skye cartwheels, wrenches and wristlocks back. Then she slips around to hook, but Velvet blocks the arm-drag. Velvet brings Skye up but Skye shifts sides to arm-drag Velvet from the other arm! Velvet staggers up and fans fire up. Skye and Velvet tie up again, Velvet headlocks but Skye snapmares free. Skye steps over an arm, and wraps Velvet up for a creative take on La Magistrol, TWO!

Velvet has a cover now, TWO! Skye has it back, ONE! Velvet has the cover again, TWO! Fans fire up for that exchange, and Velvet has to admit that was good.

Grey is annoyed but she rains down fists on Skye. Grey wraps on a headlock and she grinds Skye down.

Fans rally as Skye endures. Grey stands over Skye while pulling on the hold, but Skye still fights her way up. But Grey wrangles Skye back down! Grey grinds the hold, Skye keeps her shoulders up, and fans rally again. Skye fights up a second time, she throws body shots, and then she JAWBREAKERS! Grey staggers away, tag to Velvet, and she runs to BLAST Rayne! Velvet stands Skye up to mule kick, then she covers, TWO! Dynamite returns to single picture as Velvet tells the ref something’s in her eye, while choking Skye with a knee! The ref notices the choke, she counts and Velvet steps off at 4. Velvet talks trash to Rayne, covers Skye, TWO!

Velvet drags Skye up but Skye breaks free. Velvet mule kicks, brings Skye around and- NO, Skye slips out of the Final Slice! DOUBLE LARIATS take them both down! Fans fire up as Skye and Velvet crawl.

Just as Kiera was on fire, she let off to see if Rayne could stop Jade. Jade was not stopped, she is 43-0 overall now, and still TBS Champion. Will The Baddies continue to dominate AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Saraya.

Tony Schiavone is with The Revolution on a very festive set. Schiavone congratulates Saraya on her return to action and the win, and she thanks him for that. Saraya is actually surprised Britt isn’t- Oh, wait, here she is. Britt says no one needs to worry now. And Britt also congratulates Saraya on “the biggest win” of her entire career. It will never happen again. Also, Britt was thinking about something Saraya mentioned to her. Something about everything being handed to her on a silver platter. But Saraya came to AEW, and her first match was a PPV match against “the biggest star in the Women’s Division.”

So here’s one more thing handed to Saraya: Tickets to the Kia Forum, for the January 11th edition of Dynamite. Saraya can be front row and watch Britt be the star that she is, or maybe she can step in the ring again. Saraya tells “Baby girl,” she would love to beat Britt again. Of course! Round two! Uh, no, Britt didn’t say it’d be against her. Saraya forgot that Britt has the AEW Women’s World Champion, Jamie Hayter, with her at all times. Except right now. But it will be a tag match, Britt & Hayter VS Saraya and whoever Saraya can find to tag with her. But good luck, Saraya will never beat Britt & Hayter.

Britt heads out and Saraya asks Schiavone if he wants to get in the ring. Britt brings Schiavone with her so Saraya accepts that she’ll have to find someone. She has a little over a month, who will The Revolution invite to her house?

Dax drags Bowens up again, but Bowens switches! They go to ropes, O’Conner, TWO and Cash is there! Bowens stops from running into Cash, but then Dax rushes in! Bowens moves, Dax stops from running into Cash! Bowens runs in, Dax moves, and Bowens does run into Cash!

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

FTR is shocked! Caster & Bowens win by the skin of their teeth, but all it takes is a moment! But to show respect to Cash & Dax, they offer up the scissor fingers. FTR join in on a HUGE SCISSORING! But then from the back, the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are sarcastically clapping. Austin tells FTR, “So close! Legacy, bye-bye. And Colten, the fans thought we would get involved? Haha, no. You guys are TRASH!” Colten says, “But Austin, they’ve had a pretty good year. And we don’t want it to end yet. So we got you guys some Christmas presents.”

Austin & Colten bring out a couple stockings, and Austin reads the card. “Oh, it looks like it’s written in blood. It’s from… DEM BOYS! The Briscoe Bros! Saturday, Final Battle!” But wait, there’s more! In the stockings, Austin & Colten bring out DOG COLLARS!! The Briscoes want a Double Dog Collar Tag Team Match! “Merry Christmas, b*tch!!” Jay & Mark Briscoe threw out the challenge, and FTR are all for it! But will the three-belt champions soon lose one of those in the most brutal way possible?


My Thoughts:

A pretty awesome episode for AEW here as a go-home to a lot of things going on under the AEW umbrella. For one, great battle royal to open the night. I knew Starks would win but AEW still does a great job with the chaotic nature of battle royals, and in using them to give us a lot of story at once. I bet Jungle Boy moves on from Luchasaurus & Christian Cage (for now) by taking on The Firm after that just nasty looking apron choke slam JB took from Morrissey. Plus, there was a lot going on with Matt Hardy and Ethan Page, Hardy is going to be conflicted all the way until the moment Hardy can’t take it anymore and he rebels against The Firm.

Then after the win, Starks and MJF have an amazing promo. Starks tore into MJF, but because Starks stood tall tonight, I’m pretty sure MJF retains his title and diamond ring. A bit of a shame for Starks then, but he’s proven himself a world title picture guy, so surely Starks finds his way back around during MJF’s “reign of terror.” Great promos from Darby and Joe ahead of their title match, and I don’t think I’ve seen anyone take a powerslam to bare concrete and still wrestle. I figured Joe would retain, though, as he now has Wardlow coming for him. Joe VS Juice happens at Final Battle, Joe surely retains there, too, and then I think we get Joe VS Wardlow for Holiday Bash or New Year’s Smash. Joe can try ducking Wardlow but he can’t duck him for three months to get to AEW Revolution.

Speaking of one of the things to come out of the battle royal, I like that Cassidy and Kip had an interaction. But at the same time, Kip using what happened in the battle royal as an excuse not to face Cassidy for Rampage was pretty good Heel stuff. Cassidy could be facing just about anyone with Kip able to bring anyone in, but I would love if they used this moment to bring Miro back. There’s a lot of reasons why, from Kip being the guy who brought Miro into AEW to begin with, and Miro wanting the All-Atlantic Championship from how he almost had that title in the first place. And that’d be something to make Rampage an amazing episode.

Good promos from Hayter, Saraya and Britt, and I like that Hayter wants to be a fighting champion. She helped hype up Shida VS Bunny, and now that the winner gets a title match, that’s going to be even better stuff. I think Shida wins to retain, and then Shida and Hayter can have a big match for one of the holiday episodes. Britt challenging Saraya for a match in January is pretty interesting stuff, and of course it’s a tag match so Britt doesn’t have to face Saraya 1v1. I think Saraya ends up bringing Toni Storm into that match, and there’s a way to get them all into the title scene. I would love if this led to Britt VS Hayter to give us the story they could’ve/should’ve before.

Good match from The Baddies VS Kiera, Skye & Rayne. It was rather awkward booking that Kiera tags in right as she was doing great, but someone needed to take that loss other than her. Jade stays undefeated but Kiera could be the one they’ll build into taking the TBS Championship off her. Kiera is also returning to her “Fire” look from Women of Wrestling, so that’s pretty cool. Kiera and Jade can go full Starfire VS Blackfire from the Teen Titans and that’d be a great little nod to both their nerdier sides given all of Jade’s great cosplay ring gears for her big matches. Now, sadly, Bow Wow might still be a distraction for Jade, but at least Kiera will be someone we’ve seen in AEW and not someone brand new brought in just to beat Jade.

Great promo from Moxley to call out Hangman while hyping up BCC VS JAS. And good promo from Jericho to hype up his match with Claudio. Great tag match as well, and BCC winning out makes sense. The go-home math adds up to where JAS finds a way to retain the titles. Regal having a video message that was rather “If you’re seeing this, I’m dead” trope. But I’m a little perplexed by Regal’s logic, and by the BCC more or less shrugging it off. I thought it would’ve been more effective if someone attacked during that moment but I supposed that’d be too much given BCC VS JAS has to still wrap up. Moxley VS Konosuke will be great stuff, but Moxley is surely winning, and then Hangman probably comes out to make a challenge for Winter is Coming or New Year’s Smash.

Really good promo from The House of Black, and who knows who they’ll face first, because it’s all to bide their time until Death Triangle VS The Elite settles. Then the House can go after the AEW Trios Champions for the next feud. And then we got an awesome tag team championship main event. Acclaimed VS FTR was borderline PPV level, but I’m honestly surprised The Acclaimed won. This really should’ve been a bigger moment than it was treated, because we were then just given the Ass Boys being the proxies to the Briscoes. This is sadly a spotlight on how Tony Khan isn’t able to handle both companies at once, because one, should we not have had FTR VS Gunn Sons by this point? The Gunns have been pestering FTR for so long, they should get a shot at the ROH titles!

Yes, Briscoes VS FTR Part 3 with dog collars is going to be awesome stuff that makes Final Battle even better, but c’mon. Unless FTR is dropping those belts to Briscoes, it’s going to be even worse when the Ass Boys take the titles off them. I know FTR has been busy with the other two belts of theirs, but c’mon. The Gunns were mocking FTR a couple months ago at Battle of the Belts 4, that should’ve given us a promo of the two teams arguing, an ROH tag title match happens, and there, done. Ass Boys get their shot, they miss, they move on to try the AEW World Tag titles because The Firm wants all sorts of belts.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (12/6/22)

Atlantic City gets Dark!

Published

on

Anyone feeling luck in the Dark?

With AEW Dynamite tomorrow and ROH Final Battle this weekend, Dark brings out Dalton Castle & The Boys! Will the ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions find worthy opponents in time for December 10th?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Justin Corino, Jaden Valo & Defarge; Castle & The Boys win.
  • Leva Bates VS Abadon; Abadon wins.
  • Brian Cage VS Leon Ruffin; Cage wins.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS The Brick City Boyz; Lethal & Singh win.
  • Athena VS B3CCA; Athena wins.
  • Trent Beretta w/ Chuck Taylor VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Trent wins.

QUICK NOTES

A shorter card here, and from way back a month ago when AEW was in Atlantic City ahead of Full Gear. Dalton Castle & The Boys are in action on this episode because per last night’s Elevation, they more or less called out The Embassy. Castle & The Boys VS Cage & The Gates of Agony probably ends up a Final Battle preshow match, and I feel like that would/should be the time The Embassy takes those titles. Castle & The Boys have been great ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions, but The Embassy is going to look like a joke if they can’t get a pin off one of the Boys.
