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.

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.

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!

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 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!

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 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!
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

The Young Bucks speak.
“Why did we do what we did last week?” That is to say, they turned on Jon Moxley to save Kenny Omega. “Simple: We chose friendship.” Moxley, thanks for pushing them over the edge. This isn’t just a club of friends throwing up a hand gesture, but a family that loves. And as for Don Callis, he was right about one thing: the Bucks changed. In-ring, they’re still the best damn tag team. But backstage, they felt like frauds. They took the paydays and were no longer hungry. They let others change the narrative and take credit for their work. Matt tells Nick that he’s no longer content. They need to bring back the old Bucks. Or rather, show the world a newer, better version of themselves. What will these new Young Bucks look like in tonight’s AEW Tag Team Championship match?
Mike Tyson speaks.
“Hi, I’m Mike Tyson. And I’m so delighted to be tonight’s enforcer for Jericho’s-” But MJF interrupts “Mikey, Michael, the Mikenator” to ask what’s going on. Tyson asks what he’s doing here, and MJF says sure, he might’ve been barely born when Tyson was on top, but MJF’s dad said Tyson was a big deal so kudos to him. But the Pinnacle are a little peeved with Tyson over last week. Well Tyson’s mad, too! Of course! He has every right to be! And if anyone understands better than MJF, they don’t exist. MJF gets the idea of keeping friends close and enemies closer. Jericho is Tyson’s enemy, and if there was any time to strike, it’s right now! No, Tyson’s enemy is right in front of him.
MJF wants Tyson to slow down a second. All MJF is saying, he doesn’t need to cheat in this scenario. All MJF wants is Tyson to be on the right side of history. The last thing MJF wants for Tyson is to have regrets after tonight. Looking at Tyson’s face, there’s already one. But this right here is a blank check! Just think about it. Tyson takes that check, rips it up, and chews it to spit it in MJF’s face! MJF says he’ll remember that! Will Tyson make sure The Pinnacle gets what’s coming to them?
AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Death Triangle!
Matt & Nick promised to show us all a new side to them while still being THE best tag team in the world today! But will The Bastard & The Firebird ruin all of that right here to open Dynamite?
One thing that’s new is that they have Don Callis with them! The ring gear is of course new, as are the streamers flying through the air as opposed to Young Buck Bucks.

Backstage interview with Hangman Page and The Dark Order.
The number one ranked male singles wrestler and his new friends are here, and Alex Marvez wants to ask him about everything going on with Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers and the Young Bucks. Hangman chugs his drink then says he’s glad Marvez is here. Quick update on John Silver’s shoulder- Ow! Wait, isn’t it the other shoulder that was hurt? Yeah but Hangman’s slap to the arm hurt this one… Well give it another four to six weeks after some vitamins, prayers and egg rolls. Speaking of, Hangman’s gonna go get some egg rolls. Are the Dark Order in? YEAH! Alright! That didn’t answer…
Rehab time, Johnny! Silver lifts the bad arm all the way to 90 degrees! AWESOME! Will the Meat Man be back so that he and Alex Reynolds can chase those AEW Tag Team Championships?
Backstage interview with Mike Tyson & The Inner Circle.
The last time Tyson was in AEW, he and Jericho were enemies. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, but why? Jericho says it’s because over a month ago, when the Inner Circle received the most vicious beating of their careers from The Pineapp- No, the Pinnacle, they decided to change their ways, have a new attitude, and right some of the wrongs they’ve committed. Jericho called some of the people he felt he owed an apology to. The first was to Tyson, the greatest boxing champion ever. But after being at each other’s throats for over 10 years from a 2010 knockout on a Monday night, Jericho realized he has a lot of respect for Tyson, because Tyson has remained relevant and stand on top for 30 years, just like Jericho.
Jericho told Tyson how he felt, and Tyson said if Jericho ever needed anything, he’d be there. And that’s when Jericho asked Tyson to have their backs against “My Jerkoff Friend and his band of sour men.” Tyson had their backs, and will be the special enforcer for Jericho VS Dax, a man who just a few weeks ago, the Inner Circle put 10 stitches in his head. But though Tyson is the special enforcer, Jericho wants him to call this down the middle. Tyson says he’s firm but fair. So may the best man win. Tyson is happy to be a friend, but he won’t take a side. If Jericho messes up, Tyson will knock him out again. Tyson doesn’t want that, and Jericho doesn’t either because he still remembers that punch. But there it is! Tyson is fair, firm and enforcing the match tonight!
Red Velvet VS Jade Cargill!
Though Velvet and Cody Rhodes lost to the giants at the Crossroads, she and Jade are going to stir it up 1v1 to finally settle things! Will Velvet be serving up L’s? Or will Jade prove she is not just a storm, but #ThatBitch in AEW?
The second Jade jumps into the ring, Velvet attacks! The bell rings, they brawl and Velvet uses her boxing background to fire off! The ref backs Velvet off and Jade BOOTS Velvet right down! Jade clutches her arm but still stalks some trash. Velvet comes back to dropkick Jade into a corner! Jade kicks low and hard, then brings Velvet up to scoop. Velvet slips out to HOOK KICK! Jade staggers around, Velvet waits, and then baits Jade in to dump Jade out! Fans fire up as Velvet builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Jade hits railing! Fans are thunderous with Velvet as she stalks Jade. Velvet CLUBS Jade, whips her but Jade reverses to send Velvet into railing!
Jade scoops Velvet to taunt her friends, and then FALL AWAY SLAMS Velvet into the crowd of wrestlers! KiLynn King, Tesha Price and others are the collateral from that one! Jade goes into the ring, the others help Velvet up but she drags herself to ringside. Velvet is in at 5 of 10, and Jade smirks as she counts her abs. Jade ROCKS Velvet, hauls her up the ropes, and suplexes Velvet to hold her up for a SLAM! Jade kips up and she soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.
Jade stomps Velvet in a corner, stomps harder, and digs her boot in deep! Jade lets off as the ref counts, but Velvet fires off hands! Jade chokes Velvet into a buckle!

AEW returns, Velvet SCREW HIGH KICKS Jade hard! Jade is in a corner, she dodges but then Velvet dodges and Jade POSTS herself! Fans rally with “Stir It Up!” as Jade and Velvet rise. Velvet LARIATS but Jade stays up! Velvet LARIATS again, Jade wobbles! Velvet dodges Jade to LEAPING LARIAT and bring Jade down! Fans are thunderous as Velvet runs and wheelbarrows, to BULLDOG! Velvet says, “I’M That Bitch!” Velvet stirs it up, has a taste, and STANDING MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Velvet drags Jade to a drop zone, goes up top and MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Jade moves! Jade drags Velvet into the chicken wings, JADED SLAM!! Cover, Jade wins!
Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall
Velvet miscalculates, and Jade gets another win off her! Will Jade drag Velvet out of the top five to head for the title in her own right?
Backstage interview with Britt Baker and Rebel.
The Doctor has been pulling double duty on Dark and Elevation, and she has “breaking news” regarding the AEW Rankings! Britt “respects” the system, and is now #3 at her 7-1 record for 2021. Anyone below her, irrelevant. But Red Velvet just lost by Jade Cargill, so she’s 5-1. Britt has two more wins than Velvet, so logic says she is now #2. And she promises she’ll work her way up the ranking so that she will be on Elevation this Monday. Then the people will get what we deserve: The Role Model as AEW Women’s’ World Champion, and not Hikaru Shida. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker, DMD.
Anthony Ogogo w/ The Factory VS Cole Karter!
The 2021 Olympic Middleweight Boxing Bronze Medalist for Team Great Britain is now here, QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solow in his corner! Will #TheGovenah lay down the law for The Thoroughbred?
Ogogo gets in Karter’s face, then the bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock for a moment, and Ogogo puts Karter in a corner. Ogogo lets off, shoves Karter, but Karter comes back to get a waistlock. Ogogo pries free to switch, but Karter pries free to arm-drag! Ogogo BODY SHOTS hard! That’s a TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT!
Winner: Anthony Ogogo, by referee decision
The crown jewel of QT’s Factory hits hard and fast, and makes his money even faster! Will Ogogo go for gold, while also going for the jugular?
“Here I am. They told me to show up again today.” But Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford have been avoiding him. He wants to smooth things over, but Kip knows Miro hates wasting time. So Miro is moving on, with or without him, to become champion! IF you work for this company and have gold, you better pull a Kip and disappear before The Best Man finds you, too!
Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Chris Jericho w/ Sammy Guevara, Special Enforce Mike Tyson!
The Pinnacle attacked the Inner Circle, the Inner Circle hit back, and we’re heading for BLOOD & GUTS! But before that, FTR wants to make sure Y2J understands who is who, and why he should #FearTheRevelation! But will Jericho make sure Dax is never, ever, EEEEEEVER the same… agayn?
Tully makes his entrance with FTR but he has to remember that other than Cash and the Spanish God, no other members of either faction is allowed ringside for this! The ref tells Tully to scram!

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

Jericho kicks Dax low and put him back in! Dax CLUBS Jericho and knees him down on the return! The ref counts, Dax lets off, and Dax paces around.

The first shot has been fired, and the Demo God stands tall with his faction! Tyson joins Jericho in the ring to dare Pinnacle to do something! Jericho gets a mic to say, “As you pieces of trash leave, I want to make this official!” Iron Mike is an honorary member of the Inner Circle!

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks, and the rest of the Biz Cliz!
Matt & Nick, Kenny, Callis and the Good Brothers were just about to leave but Alex Marvez wants to talk with them. Clearly, these guys have changed the wrestling world again. Does AEW want a scoop? Well here’s the scoop! Get out of the way, Marvez! Callis has the mic to say, “If the wrestling world has learned one thing about all of us, it’s this: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t seen anything.” When the Bucks came back into the fold as the greatest tag team of the last 2000 YEARS, they came back to the family. This isn’t the end of the story, this is just the beginning!
Omega says they’re listening to “the interwebs, the radios, the podcasts, the people on the telly,” they all want to know why he and the Bucks have changed. They haven’t changed! They just got sick and tired of being what we want them to be. They’re sick of you non-sport numb-nuts wanting them to be just like you! They’re not like you! They’re them! That’s where you find success! And that’s why wherever they go, the gold follows. Matt says that this is fine, this is great, but this isn’t all fun and games. Didn’t you see the match they had? Matches of the year just pour out of Matt’s ear! The Bucks are BACK, and the AEW Tag Division has been put on notice!
So whether it’s SCU, Jurassic Express, Best Friends, Butcher & Blade or whatever they go by, you’ve all got BTE Triggers with your damn names on them! Callis says this is what it is! You wanted the old Omega? You got him! You wanted the old Bucks? BAH GAWD, you got them, too! So if you learn one thing, learn this: prepare to be surprised again! The Bucks fake out the cameraman with superkicks, but then CALLIS Superkicks!! NERD! Will all of AEW soon belong to the Biz Cliz?
Thunder Rosa speaks.
“As you have seen, I’m not only taking over the AEW Women’s Division, I’m taking over the world.” She doesn’t just want the AEW Women’s World Championship, she wants the NWA Women’s World Championship! Rosa is back on top, and whoever wins between Hikaru Shida and Tay Conti, she’ll go after you and that title. And Serena Deeb, she’s been missed. She has something that belongs to Rosa, too. Rosa is waiting for everyone because she is going to take over everything!
Kris Statlander w/ Best Friends VS Amber Nova!
The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is officially back in action, even after helping Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor & #JustTrent in Arcade Anarchy. Will she continue to be out of this world as she takes on Ms. Super Nova?
The bell rings and Kris wants to boop. She boops the ref! Kris and Nova tie up, go around, and Kris puts Nova in a corner. Nova goes up the ropes but Kris lets her go and Nova falls! Nova gets up in a huff, runs but Kris dodges to arm-drag her around! Kris then boops Nova! Fans fire up for the booping as Kriss blocks the heel kick! Kris spins Nova to ROCK her! Kris whips, scoops and POWERSLAMS! Fans fire up as Kris brings Nova back up. Nova hits back, kicks low, and pie faces her. “You’re not an alien!” Kris choke grips then military presses Nova to DROP her! Kris drags Nova into the handstand LEG DROP, and FLIPPING SENTON!
Kris gives a thumbs up and Cassidy returns it. Nova gets up, Kris runs corner to corner at her, and uppercuts! Kris goes side to side to KNEE Nova down! Nova flounders back up, Kris ROUNDHOUSES her back down! Kris gets Nova up, gut wrenches, tucks her in, and hits the BIG BANG THEORY!! Cover, Kris wins!
Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall
The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is 100% and is definitely back! Group hug! But will Kris skyrocket into the top five to be back where she left off?
Backstage interview with Team Taz.
They made an offer to Christian Cage last week to join them, but have they heard back? It’s been just a week, but no they haven’t. Ricky Starks brings up that they waited months on Powerhouse Will Hobbs, no offense to him. But why waiting a week on Christian!? They shouldn’t even wait an hour! It doesn’t matter who he is! Taz tells Starks to calm down, it is annoying. But it is best for Team Taz, if they are to lock Christian in, to have Starks hang backstage since he’s getting a little heated. Brian Cage agrees, because Starks has been a little indifferent.
Taz doesn’t want to do this on camera, but maybe Brian should hang back, too. Let Taz, Hook and Hobbs handle this. Tonight, they will convince Christian to join up! But will that really be the case?
AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
There’s a lot to talk about, and he welcomes the one and only Captain Charisma! Christian Cage is back, and he asked for this time to say this is the first time these two have had a chance to do this! What a thrill! Tony Khan gave him an open challenge contract and he’s here to use it. He wants to #OutworkEveryone, so- But then Taz interrupts! It’s been a full week, and Taz doesn’t like that he didn’t get so much as a return text message after the amazing opportunity he offered! Christian didn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE Taz’s request. Is he in or out!? Christian says he was going to do this later on in private like a professional but he’s out here so let’s do this now.
Christian says Taz just admitted himself earlier, Team Taz is a bit of a dumpster fire right now. The thing is, Christian didn’t come here to help Taz fix his problems, but to win championships! Christian will give his answer, and it’s good that Taz is standing on those steps so they can be face-to-face. Christian’s answer… is NO! Oh, well here’s the deal, SHITBAG! As far as Taz’s height, standing on his wallet would make him 10 feet taller! Oh that bingo hall money? YEAH that bingo hall money! And AEW money, too! But Christian just made the biggest mistake ever! Taz never liked Christian or his stupid friend who carried his ass, and then he has the audacity to wear Taz’s colors out here!
Hobbs has Taz calm down, and then he goes to the ring. Is Hobbs answering the open challenge?! Hobbs swings on Christian but Christian dodges to fire off haymakers! Hobbs KNEES low, talks trash, then gets Christian up to scoop, but Christian slips out to hook the arms! Speaking off hook, Hook distracts Christian on the apron! Christian swipes at him, Hook gets away, and Christian turns around into Hobb’s BODY TACKLE! Hobbs looms over Christian, Hook regroups with his dad, and fans chant, “Team Taz Sucks!” as Hobbs throws Christian into railing! Hobbs hauls Christian up to RAM him into railing again! Christian flounders, Hobbs smirks as he looms over him, then talks more trash.
Hobbs hauls Christian back up to POP-UP FLAPJACK Christian to the floor! Christian crawls away but Taz and Hook are at the ramp. Hobbs snarls as he stalks Christian to the steel steps. Hobbs hauls Cage up to SMACK him off the steel! And then stand on his head against the steps! Hobbs lets off, and leaves Christian down on the ground in a heap! No open challenge match tonight, but will Christian demand he get payback on the Powerhouse?
AEW has big plans for next week!
With Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker both clamoring for their chance, the #1 Contender gets hers! Tay Conti takes on her friendly rival and recent tag partner, Hikaru Shida, for the AEW Women’s World Championship! Tay speaks, saying that consistent hard work leads to success, and that now is her time. Shida says she wants to wrestle in sold out arenas as champion. Now it’s time to fight! Who comes out of this with the gold around their waists?
And after what we just saw, Hobbs and Christian WILL have a match next week! Will Christian be able to outwork a pure, unadulterated powerhouse? And while Hangman is THE #1 contender in the Men’s Singles Division, Ricky Starks is nipping at his heels! Will Absolute push the Cowboy out of the way on the path to the Best Bout Machine? Then, as Best Friends being their revenge tour on Death Triangle, #JustTrent takes on Penta El Zero Miedo 1v1! Will this be the first in the series for Best Friends to get back at their old foes?
AEW TNT Championship Falls County Anywhere: Darby Allin VS Matt Hardy!
The Face of the Network may be Relentless, but if Big Money Matt is to be trusted, there won’t be interference from the Hardy Family Office. Will Darby really only have to worry about Hardy and not Butcher, Blade, Bunny and/or Private Party? Or is the truth rarely the truth with Hardy these days?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Big Money cashes in big time in the main event!
Hardy gets a chair right at the bell, and Darby is wary. Darby dodges the chair shot, fires off haymakers, then runs, but springboards into a SMACK! Darby writhes, Hardy gets the chair up to JAM him in the stomach! Hardy looms over Darby, lines up his shot and SMACKS him again! Darby writhes out of the ring, flounders around, and we see Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky watching from Darby’s usual perch. All Ego & The Face of the Revolution still feel snubbed so they want to see Darby get destroyed for it. Hardy runs but Darby avoids another chair shot to fire off forearms! Hardy JAMS Darby again, SMACKS him another time, and then puts the chair aside put dig hands into Darby’s face!
Hardy DECKS Darby, drags him up and brings him around to smear into the apron! Hardy dribbles Darby’s face off the apron, puts him in and then gets the chair again. Fans rally for Darby as Hardy paces. Hardy takes a seat to watch Darby crawl as fans chant, “Hardy Sucks!” Darby sits up but Hardy ROCKS him! And DECKS him! Hardy gets the chair again, paces around like a shark with blood in the water, and that’s literal because Darby’s back is cut up. Hardy JAMS Darby with the chair into the waist! Hardy gets Darby up but Darby ROCKS Hardy with big palm strikes! Darby fires off forearms, but Hardy kicks low! NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!
Hardy seethes as he gets the chair again. Hardy sits the chair up again, brings Darby over and BOUNCES Darby’s head off the seat! Fans boo, Hardy drags Darby back up but Darby is a rag doll! Hardy gets the chair, stalks Darby as the ref checks on him, and Hardy SMACKS Darby again! Fans boo but Hardy soaks up the heat while Darby writhes on the mat. Hardy drags Darby back over to the chair, puts Darby through the chair, and then brings Darby up! FULL METAL- NO! Darby fights free and uses the chair to RAM Hardy! And SMACK him with it! Darby fires off more SMACKS and fans want “One More Time!” Darby obliges and SMACKS again!
But here come Butcher, Blade & Bunny! That promise was just lip service! Butcher CHUCKS a trash can at Darby’s head!! Direct hit and Darby goes down! Private Party also join in, and Hardy has the HFO mug Darby! Quen & Kassidy stomp Darby, Butcher & Blade bring steel steps over! The steps are set up near a corner of the ringside area, but the Dark Order make the save! They go after the HFO, and IT’S STIIIIING! The Icon has his bat, he TOSSES Kassidy, JAMS Quen, and then brings Kassidy up to TOSS him at Quen! Sting gets in, gets the trash can and SMACKS Kassidy! Then Sting runs to DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Private Party out of the ring!
Hardy and Darby ended up by the timekeeper’s area and fans chant “This is Awesome!” as AEW goes picture in picture!
Darby throws hands on Hardy against the stage wall! Sting keeps on Private Party while all of Dark Order brawls with Butcher & Blade! Darby drags Hardy up, brings him around and bumps him off the apron. Darby gets the trash can, brings it out and SMACKS Hardy! And SMACKS him again! Hardy flounders, Darby brings him over, and goes to suplex. Hardy counters to GOURD BUSTER Darby onto the trash can! Uno & Stu RAM Butcher into stage wall, Sting SMACKS Kassidy off steel steps. Hardy covers, TWO! Darby is still in this, but Hardy chokes him on the timekeeper’s table! Hardy rains down rights while his HFO get mugged over and over.
Hardy backs off, Sting SMACKS Quen off steps. Darby gets up, Hardy ROCKS him again, and Hardy gets the trash can. Darby fights back with haymakers! Darby uses the crushed can to RAM Hardy down! Darby fires up while his allies keep HFO at bay. Darby brings Hardy around, CHOPS him against the stage wall, and Sting throws Private Party into each other. Hardy ROCKS Darby and whips him into the stage wall! Hardy staggers around, brings Darby back up, but Darby RAMS him into the stage! AEW returns to single picture as Darby whips but Hardy reverses. Darby leaps over steel steps but COLLIDES with railing! Fans lose their minds as Hardy pursues.
Sting and Private Party are in the ring again while Hardy covers Darby, TWO! Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky have appeared ringside! They creep up on Sting, but LANCE ARCHER is there! The Murderhawk Monster makes sure they stay back, and Sting gets Private Party in double dragon sleepers, but then he sees Archer getting in the ring?! Is Archer just staking a claim to the prey?! But then Archer drags Kassidy up to the top rope, inverted crucifix for the BLACKOUT BOMB!! Hardy bowls Darby through the crowd of wrestlers while Archer goes out to get Quen and Kassidy! Hardy chases Darby up the ramp, has a chair, but sees what happened to his HFO!
Darby gets the chair from him to JAM him! And tackle him for a rain of fists! Sting tosses Darby the bat! Almost a passing of the torch as Darby aims at Hardy. Hardy begs for mercy but he won’t get any, so Hardy LOW BLOWS first!! Darby drops the bat as Hardy gets two balls! Hardy puts Darby through another chair! FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!!! Hardy crawls to cover Darby on the stage, TWO!?!?! Darby still lives and that shocks Hardy! Fans are thunderous, Hardy drags Darby up and throws him down the tunnel! They go to gorilla now as Hardy elbows away on Darby. Hardy BOWLS Darby into the monitors!
Hardy gets a ladder! Hardy sets it up near a table and he drags Darby over. Hardy puts Darby on the table, rains down rights and lefts, then climbs the ladder. Hardy powers up, and SUPER LEG DROPS through the table!! Cover in the wreckage, TWO!??!?! How did Darby survive!?! Hardy is furious and fans are thunderous as ever! Hardy drags Darby from the wreckage, back out the other tunnel to the stage. Hardy throws Darby and fans chant, “Hardy Sucks!” Darby crawls, Hardy points to where Sting’s bat ended up, and then drags Darby up. Hardy CLUBS away on Darby’s back, hauls him up, and Canadian racks, but Darby slips free to LOW BLOW! With interest!
Darby flounders but gets Sting’s bat back! Darby brings the bat to where Hardy is on the stage, and Hardy is by commentary. Darby rushes in to SLUG Hardy in the stomach, then the back, then JAM him in the head! Then he CRACKS Hardy in the ribs while he’s down! Darby SMACKS all the monitors off the commentary table! Fans fire up with his rage as Darby chokes Hardy! Darby drags Hardy onto the announce desk and then JAMS Hardy in the head! Darby won’t end it here, he goes up to the girders!! SUPER COFFIN DROP!!! Cover, Darby wins!!
Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
Hardy said he’d show us how extreme he can still be, but Darby showed us what “extreme” really means! The Face of the Network is STILL Relentless, but who’s next to roll the dice with him?
What a great episode! A lot of great progress in the stories, great action in the matches, it’s just great. The tag titles opening has become the natural move for AEW, and it was a great match with the Bucks showing us their new Heel personas that really do poke fun at everything they’ve been before this point. Their promo before the match to actually open the episode was also good to put that in perspective, and we got a good group promo with them and this new form of the Elite/Bullet Club. Callis giving the superkick was a nice little twist, I wonder if another group of five steps up to take these guys on in maybe not Blood & Guts but a Stadium Stampede sequel.
If it were anyone, it should be Hangman and the main four of Dark Order, i.e. Uno, Stu, Reynolds & Silver. Hangman is the #1 contender, is going to have an absolutely awesome match with Ricky Starks next week, and will certainly circle back to facing Omega again. It was good story that he ignored the questions about the new Elite during the interview, because he’ll have to face them eventually, but he can’t deal with that right now so he won’t. Silver is almost back from his bad arm, he and Reynolds can have some great matches with the Good Brothers. The Bucks are going to have great matches with any team they face, I hope they work from #5 to #1 in a countdown.
If SCU maintains their #1 rank, they can really build the “titles or bust” story for Daniels & Kazarian until they have just the most amazing match AEW has seen yet, and the crowd either explodes because SCU wins the titles, or still explodes because SCU loses their last match together. It’s how things have to go, it just has to. Velvet VS Cargill was great, and naturally Cargill won to maintain her strength. She needs to be getting more matches in, though. She needs to catch up to that top five to really make her feel like she is this strong. Speaking of, I like that Britt is giving us the ranking updates “in real time” to add onto her story of making AEW accountable for saying wins and losses matter.
Rosa had a really good promo to restate her mission to get both women’s titles, and Shida VS Tay happening next week is awesome! It’s been a point of contention that AEW hasn’t put as much into their Women’s Division but now they are and that’s great. I don’t think Tay takes the title off Shida, because there’s also Double or Nothing 2021 to consider. Shida could have a big defense as the one year anniversary to getting the title off Nyla Rose, so maybe that is where Britt or Rosa gets their shot and their own big PPV title win. And after that, things freshen up as Britt or Rosa takes on the other contenders, from Big Swole to Red Velvet to Kris Statlander, who also got back on track with her return win.
Team Taz ups the ante with Christian Cage as the open challenge never really happens. I would still harp on Christian not really being a workhorse but he did take a lot of bumps from Hobbs here so that was a good amount of work. Christian VS Hobbs will be very good, and I did like that we got more dysfunction in the team with Starks and Brian Cage. That FTW Championship match is still happening, I am sure of it. Miro’s ultimatum to Kip and all the title holders was great. I’m pretty sure Kip lets Miro do things his own way, and Miro goes right for the TNT title.
And of course, that TNT Championship Falls Count Anywhere was AMAZING. Naturally, the HFO did NOT stay out of this, they had great brawling with the Dark Order, and it’s great for Darby to get the win. Darby can probably keep winning until Double or Nothing, maybe against Miro, maybe against either Ethan Page or Scorpio Sky since they’re still hanging around, or maybe even Archer since he got in on things. The TNT Championship definitely is where the real workhorses wrestle, and whoever wins this title could probably go against Christian Cage at some point because of his #OutworkEveryone catchphrase.
My Score: 9.4/10

Big thanks from the Dark Order to Superfan Aaron for unlocking those moves in Number 3! Will everyone get out of the way of the HONK HONK as Dark Order storms down the tracks?
A good Dark, mostly because it was an hour and 35 minutes, but it was still a lot of matches crammed into that time. AEW is probably going to continue to be unpredictable with episode lengths and match totals so I don’t know if I can maintain doing Dark and Elevation when I’m also covering WWE’s Raw and NXT on these same days. I feel like the SCU’s matches need to be Elevation by default because of their self-challenge of “next time we lose, we break up” angle. That said, it’s also a giveaway that these two aren’t losing before getting a title opportunity, so maybe that’s why they’re still being put on Dark.
I also feel like Velvet should be on Elevation if she and Jade are going to be getting after each other. They’re supposed to be the rising stars but they weren’t on the show that’s about rising stars in exchange for… Well, Elevation actually had a lot of solid matches worthy of it, but they could’ve still put this one there since they love going bigger. Team Taz had a good story, too, where now Starks is going past being chippy with Cage to being overly helpful. This has to implode at some point, and they fight for the FTW Championship on at least Dynamite.
I do like that Britt had another match tonight, because she is determined to get wins to play by the AEW rules. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had another double header next week between Elevation and Dark to try and stuff the win-loss record and rankings. Double or Nothing 2021 is still six weeks away, so if AEW had the contenders all fight each other at some point in not a tournament but more a best-of series, that’d be really good to have Britt try and jump over Big Swole and Tay Conti to go after Shida. Also, AEW really just let Swole’s promo of being determined to get her shot drop like a lead balloon. Swole needs to get hungry again and get in all the other contenders’ faces as she takes over the contender race.
The Dark Order tying in the State Farm deal and the superfan Zoom call they apparently had was really nice. They’re definitely Faces doing things like that, and of course Reynolds uses the moves (and their names) suggested by the superfan. WWE gets product tie-ins and sponsorship deals, so AEW can have them, too! Either way, I think Reynolds was going to win because The Dark Order has been on fire. One of these days, one of their tag combinations is going to get at the tag titles, and that is going to be a lot of fun.
