Avalon goes to a corner and grabs one of the hard cover books! Avalon swings but Cutler scoops him, only to swing Avalon into the ref!

The ref is down as Cutler hits the GUT BUSTER DROP! Cover, but the ref can’t count! Cutler would’ve won twice over off his #TotalPartyKill! Cutler rips up the book and that freaks Leva out! Cutler has the book but Avalon has the 20-sided die! They BOTH hit each other with the objects!! The ref calls for the bell!

Double Disqualification Draw

ANOTHER draw?! Leva is disappointed in them both and leaves without them. Avalon and Cutler blame the other for this, but this was another shocking way to NOT win! Will Cutler and Avalon ever figure out how to get the goose eggs off their records?

A powerful combination between the Numbers, and that bolsters the power of the Dark Order. Will the faction find a way to take over all of AEW?

 

Red Velvet VS Elayna Black!

Red VS Black? Sounds like roulette or something. But will it take more than luck for Velvet to stir it up against the Sorceress?

Brandi Rhodes joins commentary, as she’s taken a liking to the young Red Velvet. And she’s a little weirded out by Elayna’s miniature coffin and the tarot cards inside.

The Absolute knows he’s hot, Taz knows he’s hot, but is he hotter than the Fire of the Sun? We’ll see as tonight’s GIGANTIC Dark reaches the halfway point!

The bell rings and Starks BOOTS Fuego down! And then clubs away on him in the corner! The ref counts, Starks lets up at 4, but he goes after Fuego again with a CLUBBING forearm!

Backstage interview with SoCal Uncensored.

Kaz was in singles action, but Scorpio Sky and Christopher Daniels are here. SCU lost to FTR, but there was a confrontation of sorts with Shawn Spears backstage. Did that get into Scorpio’s head? Before Scorpio can properly answer, Spears appears! “Yes, Sky. Did I get in your head?” Scorpio says that didn’t happen, and Daniels points out the only reason FTR won was because of “this jackass right here,” Tully Blanchard. Spears says not to point at Tully. Scorpio tells Spears that if they have a problem, “we can do this.” Spears says there’s no problem here. Except with Daniels for disrespecting Tully! Daniels says if the “damsel is in distress,” then step up! Spears accepts, and Tully says this’ll happen next week on Dark! Seven days is fine. Scorpio knows Daniels has this, but try to save some of Spears for Scorpio to deal with. Will the Fallen Angel leave some #PERFECT10N for The Closer to put away?

 

Gunn Club VS Ryzin & Maxx Stardom!

Billy and son, Austin, are still rolling strong in the AEW Tag Division, but they haven’t had their “Brush with Greatness” just yet. Will the Gunn Club hit their mark against the Priest of Sin and the 5 Star Superstar?

That hip toss neckbreaker is a sure shot for the Son of a Gunn, and that helps Austin and Billy stay undefeated in 2020! Will they be aiming for tag title shot in the near future?

 

Darby Allin VS Nick Comoroto!

The Relentless Darby is willing to throw his body at anyone and off anything, and he has unfinished business with Team Taz. Will Darby prove he’s ready for Starks after taking on the Freak Beast Wrecking Ball?

Starks insults Darby for being a “lazy SOB” painting only half his face. The bell rings, Darby circles with Comoroto, and tie up.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Taz is “so happy” for “Skateboard Timmy,” because he used a lot of “sketchy” offense to beat a man bigger than him. Starks talks some trash but Darby comes right after him! They brawl at commentary and referees hurry to separate them! Darby storms off and Taz says that is uncalled for! Will Starks and Darby settle things in the ring soon enough?

 

KiLynn King speaks.

“The first time Nyla Rose and I faced off in the ring, I showed her that The King cannot be tossed around like some of her past opponents. And what does Vickie Guerrero do? Attack me from behind!” Fast forward to just last week, chaos unravels, and what does Nyla do? Attacks King from behind! Maybe they think these tactics make them look big and bad, but they just make them look like cowards. KiLynn King is THE KING of Crazy. Nyla is just a “Native B*TCH!” Strong words, but will she be able to back them up in the ring?

 

Colt Cabana w/ Evil Uno VS Griff Garrison!

BOOM BOOM Colt Cabana still isn’t in Mr. Brodie Lee’s good graces, but Uno has been able to ease the tension. Will winning against the Ivy League MVP help the Exalted One forgive Cabana?

The bell rings and Cabana circles with Griff. They tie up, fans rally as Cabana spins and wrenches and trips Griff to float to a cover, ONE! Griff keeps his eyes on Cabana as they circle, tie up again, but Cabana gets the wrench to a wristlock. Griff wrenches, steps over and gets around to a headlock. Cabana powers Griff to a corner then powers out. Griff goes up and over then hurdles. Cabana goes up and around but into a BOOT from Griff! Fans fire up but Uno is upset as Griff runs in. Cabana ducks, Griff splashes onto buckles! Griff is stuck up there, Cabana kicks and kicks from below, to eventually send Griff flying up and out to the ramp! The ref is busy checking on Cabana and Uno throws Griff into the ring!

Uno tells Cabana to get after Griff but Cabana waits for Griff to rise. Cabana CHOPS Griff, then throws forearms in the corner. Cabana wrenches but Griff throws forearms. Griff throws more forearms, Cabana whips but Griff dodges, only to run into a slam! Cabana gets the legs but Griff scrambles to a ropebreak! Cabana lets go and waits for Griff to get up. Cabana is after him with forearms, elbows and then shoves Griff down. Cover, TWO! Cabana grows annoyed and he grabs at Griff, but Griff has a ropebreak.

Winner: Colt Cabana, by submission

Uno applauds Cabana and says that was incredible. But will it be enough to make Cabana into Brodie’s favorite again?

 

Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS KiLynn King!

The Vicious Vixens surely heard what King had to say earlier, just as we did. But will the Native Beast just maul King head-on this time?

The bell rings and King rushes Rose! They tie up, Rose throws King down and Vickie cackles. King comes back, waistlocks but Nyla elbows her away. Rose runs, King follows but Vickie swipes at King. King still fights Rose off, kicks low and runs, to BOOT Rose back! Vickie is upset as King whips, but Rose reverses and catches the crossbody! Rose FALL AWAY SLAMS King to a corner! Vickie cheers but fans boo as Rose drags King back up. Rose throws body shots and knees in, but King turns things around to forearm and CHOP back! Fans cheer as King brings Rose to another corner, but Rose blocks the buckle bump to give the bump. Rose runs but King dodges to headbutt back! Rose blocks the boot and ducks the enziguri to waistlock and GERMAN SUPLEX King hard! Vickie laughs more as Rose drags King up and in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Rose wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

King tried to take the fight to Rose, but it wasn’t enough! Vickie gets a mic to say, “Every day, I plan, scheme and strategize how to obtain worldwide championships for my client. But for the past two months, ‘the powers to be’ throw us pathetic, broken Barbies to wrestle!” These women have no name or legacy to speak of! They are the Vicious Vixens, and they will NOT be put to the side any longer. Vickie says Nyla is no longer stepping into the ring until Hikaru Shida publicly accepts the challenge to face Nyla Rose for that AEW Women’s World Championship! If you think they’re angry now, keep putting them aside, because you ain’t seen nothing yet! What will the Full Metal Warrior say to this ultimatum?

 

Joey Janela w/ Sonny Kiss VS D3!

The Bad Boy was there when the Concrete Rose fell short of stopping Sydal, and now Kiss returns the favor as Janela has his match! Will Jersey’s Finest at least break even on the night? Or will the Prince of Rome start to make a name for himself in AEW?

The bell rings and Janela circles with D3 as the fans rally up. They tie up, D3 gets the arm and wrenches, but Janela rolls and slips under to wrench back. D3 rolls, drop toeholds and Oklahoma Rolls, TWO! Joey sweeps, ONE! D3 sweeps, covers, Janela Matrix slides outs. D3 tries to roll Janela up but he stays up to get the arm. D3 kips up but into Janela’s headlock. D3 powers out, Janela runs him over! Fans cheer as Janela runs and things speed up. D3 hurdles, goes around and huricanranas! Janela gets to a corner, D3 runs in but Janela dodges. Janela comes back into an uppercut!

D3 Quebradas but Janela dodges, and D3 rolls through to come back and merry-go-round headscissor, only for Janela to dump D3 down! Janela basement dropkicks D3 to a corner, brings him up and CHOPS him! Janela whips D3 to ropes, knees low then hits a neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Janela grows annoyed but fans rally up as he stalks D3 to ropes. Janela CHOPS, throws haymakers, then DOUBLE CHOPS! He whips D3, D3 comes back with a crucifix to a neckbreaker! D3 fires up, runs and goes up, headstand and leg clapping for a VADER ELBOW! D3 blows a kiss to Kiss while Janela bails out to the apron. D3 goes out but Janela CLOBBERS him! Janela gives D3 an airplane spin to a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!

The Bad Boy is in a bad mood now as he puts D3 into the ring. Fans rally as Janela takes his time returning. Janela runs laps as D3 rises, and Janela LARIATS him! Janela fires up and drags D3 up. Suplex to BRAIN BUSTER! But Janela isn’t done with D3, he hits ANOTHER BRAIN BUSTER! Janela brings D3 up again, for a THIRD BRAIN BUSTER!! Three busters for D3 and yet Janela doesn’t cover! The rage of the Bad Boy is red hot as he drags D3 back up. D3 is dead weight so Janela spares him and covers, Janela wins!

Winner: Joey Janela, by pinfall

Jersey’s Finest ends the night with a win, and it was a brutal one! Will Janela and Kiss bring this aggression to whoever holds the AEW World Tag Team Championships after Wednesday?

 

Wardlow VS Elijah Dean!

MJF’s muscular associate returns to in-ring action against the self-proclaimed, “Man Dime.” Will Wardlow drop this dime as he heads for the AEW World Championship gold?

The bell rings and Elijah realizes what he’s up against. He still ties up with Wardlow but Wardlow shoves him to a corner! Elijah gets up, Wardlow gets in to waistlock and throw Elijah down! Elijah hurries to a corner and Wardlow dares him to do something. Elijah comes back, gets around and clubs Wardlow, then throws haymakers, kicks and chop! Elijah runs, into a SPINE BUSTER! Wardlow dares Elijah to get back up, then slaps him around. Elijah hits back but Wardlow SLAPS and winds up to CLOBBER him! Wardlow says this is done, but Elijah sits up! Wardlow brings Elijah up to RAM him into a corner, ram him some more, then hoists him up to the top rope. Thumbs up, thumbs down, FALLING KNEE SMASH!! NOW it’s done!!

Winner: Wardlow, by knockout

Wardlow literally does drop the man dime, and he is ready to do the same to any and all of the other seven wrestlers in the contender’s tournament! Will it take everything his opponents have to stop Wardlow from going to Full Gear?

 

Eddie Kingston VS Baron Black!

The Mad King was never truly eliminated from the Casino Battle Royal, and never tapped out or verbally quit against Jon Moxley. But now he and the #EmpBRUH get to close out Dark! Will there be no excuses around what happens in this main event?

The bell rings and Kingston approaches with Baron. They tie up, Kingston waistlocks and throws Baron around, but Baron gets up and wrenches free to a wristlock. Kingston endures, reaches back to a headlock and takeover. Baron fights and gets a headscissor, and holds on tight as Kingston tries to get out. Kingston moves around, gets a ropebreak, and Baron lets off fast. The two go again, Kingston wrenches and knees low. Kingston knees Baron more and more, then paces around Baron as he’s down on the mat. Kingston brings Baron up to CHOP and CHOP, then stomps Baron to ropes. Kingston gets in Baron’s face and digs those forearms in.

The ref counts, Kingston lets off, but Baron CHOPS and CHOPS in return! Kingston pokes Baron in the eyes! The ref reprimands but Kingston tells Bryce to watch it. Kingston brings Baron up to CHOP again! Kingston puts Baron in a corner, whips him corner to corner but Baron reverses, to run in with a DISCUS LARIAT, and an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Baron runs, Kingston kitchen sink knees! And then URAKEN!! Kingston shakes out his hand then says, “No, no, no!” The back hand isn’t enough. This is for Moxley! STANDING GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Baron taps right away, Kingston wins!

Winner: Eddie Kingston, by submission

The Mad King makes the EmpBruh submit to his will, and lets go when HE is satisfied! Kingston keeps shouting, “Moxley! Moxley!” at the camera before he leaves. AEW World Championship aside, will Kingston get after Moxley to settle their own score?


My Thoughts:

Fourteen matches is insane for any show. Especially when AEW Dark is commercial free, making this almost a full two HOURS of content. And again, only so many matches really mattered. Obviously Starks was going to beat Fuego, Gunn Club was going to beat Ryzin and Stardom, and Wardlow just DEMOLISHED Elijah Dean. I also figured Janela would beat D3 but the brutality he showed was actually quite the development for his character. Maybe the Bad Boy is growing frustrated that his tag run with Kiss is a roller coaster going up and down. Kiss and Sydal had a good match but it was natural for Sydal to win as the new guy coming in with a lot of momentum. Cabana having Uno in his corner is good story build, as was Brandi being on commentary for Red Velvet’s win. Comotoro looks physically impressive, but Darby gets the win off him so he stays on pace with Starks.

Kingston also got an obvious win, but there was also story development there with him calling out Moxley before using a submission to win. I still feel Kingston and Moxley will have a rematch, likely with the title on the line, and hopefully in an I Quit match. KiLynn King had a great promo but it obviously didn’t change the outcome of the match, she was losing to Nyla Rose one way or another. But Vickie putting the kayfabe out there that management is why Nyla VS Shida hasn’t happened yet, and now putting it on Shida to accept the challenge. Maybe we get that news on the Dynamite Anniversary and the match is set for Full Gear in a few weeks.

The Dark Order has a good night as the trio of 3, 4 and 10 win, but Uno did not in that Fatal 4 Way. Best match of the night and yet it opened the show, I feel like AEW needs to give Dark some better balance. It’s great for Jungle Boy to win, though. If not for Omega VS Page being part of the tournament, it’d be incredible if JB found a way to win and challenge whoever is champion after Full Gear. But he’s very young, and is still very popular with fans so he’ll surely come back around to a title as Dynamite enters year two.

My Score: 8.1/10

PLAY BY PLAY

MJF VS Wheeler Yuta!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman is poised to go after the AEW World Championship whenever he wants, but he may have gone and upset the wrong one. The Blackpool Combat Club’s Decoder looks to prove MJF is not better than anyone, but will that be the case? Or will the Devil of AEW have another trick up his sleeve?

The bell rings and Yuta dares MJF to make a move. Fans rally behind Yuta and MJF is upset. MJF approaches, but then dodges Yuta to strut. MJF dusts himself off as fans duel, and then MJF and Yuta tie up. MJF pulls Yuta’s hair and pushes him backward into a corner. The ref counts, MJF lets off slowly, but Yuta avoids the sucker punch to ROCK MJF over and over! Yuta stomps away, throws haymakers, then whips corner to corner. MJF reverses, Yuta goes up and over and arm-drags MJF around! Yuta fakes MJF out on the third to do his own strut! Fans cheer, MJF rushes in but into a DROPKICK!

Yuta wrenches MJF around into an OLYMPIC SLAM! Fans fire up as Yuta climbs a corner! But MJF slow rolls away to the far corner. Yuta hops down, storms up but MJF uses ropes as a defense.

Yuta runs but MJF scoops for a BACKBREAKER to a gut wrench and SLAM! Cover, TWO! Fans duel while MJF argues the count. The ref defends that two is two as AEW goes picture in picture.

MJF CHOKES Yuta! The ref reprimands but MJF lets off. Yuta sit sup and gets to ropes. MJF CHOKES Yuta on the ropes! The ref counts, MJF lets off again, and Yuta sputters to a corner.

MJF paces around, scowls at the fans, then he drags Yuta up in a corner. MJF whips corner to corner hard and Yuta bounces off the buckles. The ref checks but Yuta refuses to stop here. MJF whips Yuta hard into the other corner!

Yuta falls to the mat again while MJF tells DC off. MJF then storms over to Yuta and digs his boot in at the corner. The ref counts, MJF lets off at 4, and then he drags Yuta up. Yuta ROCKS MJF! And again! And again! Yuta fires off forearm after forearm, but then MJF throws Yuta down by his hair! The ref reprimands but MJF scowls again. MJF drags Yuta up again, bumps him off buckles, stares down the fans again, then he wrenches Yuta to whip corner to corner. Yuta reverses as Dynamite returns to single picture and MJF hits buckles hard! Both men are down, a standing count begins, and fans rally up.

MJF stands and he storms over, but Yuta cradles! TWO! MJF kicks low, whips Yuta to ropes, but Yuta kicks back! Yuta waistlocks, MJF flails and grabs the ropes. Yuta drags MJF from the ropes, and he avoids MJF stomping his feet! And again, and again! MJF elbows free, whips Yuta, but Yuta rewinds and gets around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Yuta holds on and drags MJF back up, for another GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Yuta drags MJF up again, for the THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! #SuplexYuta drags MJF up again, for a FOURTH GERMAN! Fans fire up as Yuta kips up! Yuta roars and he hurries to a corner.

Yuta goes up top, but MJF rolls away again. Fans are torn but Yuta runs in this time, but into an elbow! MJF goes up and DOUBLE STOMPS Yuta’s arm! MJF grabs the bad arm, but Yuta switches around to waistlock! MJF fights the German, slips an arm in and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips, Yuta ducks ‘n’ dodges to whip, but MJF blocks. MJF whips, dodges, but Yuta jumps! MJF blocks the rana into a POWER BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Yuta survives the powerbomb backbreaker fusion and MJF is beside himself! Fans rally and William Regal criticizes MJF for sulking rather than pouncing.

MJF kicks Yuta and slaps him around. Fans duel as Yuta eggs MJF on. MJF slaps so Yuta SLAPS! And ROCSK! And CHOPS! And repeat! ROLLING- NO, MJF kicks first, but Yuta blocks it! But then MJF pokes Yuta in the eye! The ref reprimands but MJF runs, into Yuta’s ENZIGURI! MJF wobbles and sits back and fans fire up with Yuta. Yuta shakes out his bad arm, CLAWS MJF’s face, then stands him up to CHOP! Yuta whips, MJF sunset flips, TWO! Yuta sits on the cover, TWO! MJF sunsets again, TWO! Yuta sits, ONE! MJF sunsets, ONE! Yuta, ONE! MJF, ONE! Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat! Fans are loving this!

MJF has the sunset again, TWO! Yuta jackknifes, TWO as MJF bridges! MJF spins things around to hook the arms, but then swings Yuta out into a gut wrench! But Yuta fights it to turn that around!

Yuta shifts around, reaches out, but MJF drags Yuta away! OVER-THE-BACK FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! Yuta taps, MJF wins!

Winner: MJF, by submission

Fans are torn, but one thing that’s rather surprising here: MJF did things fair and square! Yuta gets up and he turns MJF around! Yuta wants MJF to acknowledge the fans on this one. Yuta offers a handshake! MJF isn’t sure, but Yuta says MJF can be a man here and shake Yuta’s hand. MJF is conflicted, but he reaches out… Only for Lee Moriarty to attack from behind! The Firm’s #TAIGASTYLE strikes, but MJF is mad?! MJF tells Moriarty that he did NOT order that. This is Moriarty going against MJF’s orders! Stokely Hathaway comes out, eating a pear, and he holds out MJF’s Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF says he doesn’t want it like this, but Stokely tells him to just do it!

MJF takes the ring, puts it on, and Moriarty sits Yuta up. Fans boo but here comes Regal! Regal puts on the BRASS KNUCKLES! Stokely and Moriarty bail as fans chant for Regal. Regal gets in the ring with MJF, dares him to use the ring on him. Fans tell MJF that “YOU F’D UP!” MJF tells Regal he’s not gonna do this, and he storms off. Was this a moment of MJF having a change of heart? Is that even possible?

 

AEW looks at the THREE YEARS of history behind tonight’s main event.

Chris Jericho brought together a group known as The Inner Circle: himself, Santana, Ortiz, Jake Hager, and Sammy Guevara. The young Spanish God has been Jericho’s protégé since the beginning of Dynamite. On the other side, Daniel Garcia came in with “2Point0,” Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker, while The American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, came in alone to shake up the foundation of AEW. Bryan told Jon Moxley, “What if we took someone like Wheeler Yuta under our wing? What if we took someone like Daniel Garcia away from 2Point0?” That was the beginning of the Blackpool Combat Club.

As for Jericho, his Inner Circle soon fell apart, because Santana & Ortiz didn’t “appreciate” Jericho. But Hager and Guevara stayed by Jericho’s side in the Jericho Appreciation Society, which took in Garcia & 2Point0. Then cut to Anarchy in the Arena, the bloodiest faction warfare in AEW history, and perhaps in all of professional wrestling. Or perhaps, in sports entertainment. The JAS came out the winners as Jericho and Hager took Bryan out together. But Bryan didn’t stay away long, and he had a battle with Garcia. This started planting a seed in Garcia’s head, and Jericho questioned Garcia’s loyalties.

Bryan VS Garcia II went the American Dragon’s way and that infuriated Jericho. Garcia didn’t appreciate Jericho ruining the moment, but then Garcia had his own moment by taking Wheeler Yuta’s ROH Pure Championship. Jericho would do the same to Claudio Castagnoli and the ROH World Championship, but in a far less honorable way. Bryan made one more plea to Garcia that he could be BCC, but Jericho told him to shut up! Jericho has vowed to “desecrate” ROH and what it stands for. Will he do just that as he takes on the pro-wrestlers, Bryan Danielson & Daniel Garcia?

 

Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone says that showdown of BCC VS JAS is in tonight’s main event. Matthew Menard shouts at the camera, “Daniel Garcia! After everything we have been through together, you wanna spit in our face and team with Bryan Danielson? No problem! But you take a gift, a gift that this man (Chris Jericho) gave you, that hat, and throw it on the ground?!” Hager sure likes the hat. Angelo Parker says they walked into AEW together. 2Point0 loves Garcia. He is family! But it seems Garcia has lost his way.

Jericho says Garcia is a petulant child who sticks his finger in the light socket even though he’s been told not to. But that’s okay. It is that rebellious nature that brought him to the JAS. But Garcia needs to remember that every trick he was taught, he was taught by them. They taught him how to be a great sports entertainer. Schiavone says, “You’re talking about systematic cheating, right?” To-may-to, to-mah-to, Schiavone. Lessons will be taught, lessons will be learned, and Jericho just hopes Garcia makes the right decision. Sammy shouts, “And if you don’t…! We’re gonna end you.”

Jericho says, “Speaking of ending, Bryan, tonight is gonna be a taste of what you’re gonna get in Toronto. I’m gonna desecrate the legacy of ROH. I’m gonna leave Toronto as the Ring of Jericho Champion, and still be the Ocho.” Jericho has issued his title match challenge to Bryan Danielson, but will he end up losing here tonight?

 

Darby Allin VS Jay Lethal!

The Relentless One dared this former ROH World Champion to do things truly 1v1 with no one in their corners, and surprisingly, the challenge was accepted! Will Darby prove he is worthy of gold in time for Full Gear? Or will it be a Lethal Injection that puts the rising star down?

The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Lethal and Darby tie up, Lethal gets around to a waistlock but Darby switches. Lethal switches back, Darby switches again, Lethal switches again, but then Darby slips away. Fans cheer the standoff as the two reset. Darby and Lethal tie up, Darby headlocks, but Lethal slips through and wrenches into a headlock of his own. Darby pries free, headlocks back and hits the takeover. Lethal headscissors, Darby moves around to get free and get the headlock back, but Lethal back suplexes. Darby lands on his feet, Lethal arm-drags him down, but Darby shifts around to get the headlock back!

Lethal fights up as fans rally, and Lethal wrenches free. Lethal wrenches, wrenches, hammerlocks, but Darby reaches back. Fans rally and duel, Darby hammerlocks, but Lethal spins. Darby spins with him to keep the hammerlock, and then again! Lethal runs to ropes to throw Darby out. Darby hurries back in as Lethal slides out, and Darby eggs Lethal on. Lethal rushes in but Darby sidesteps. Lethal hooks Darby to whip, but Darby goes up, steadies himself and springboards for a FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Darby sweeps and covers, ONE! The two stand off again and fans cheer. Darby smirks and he offers a handshake.

Lethal considers it, but he kicks low! Lethal whips Darby to a corner, runs in but Darby goes up and over. Darby comes back to monkey flip but Lethal handsprings through. Lethal comes back to monkey flips but Darby lands on his feet! Darby stops from running into the ref, only to turn around into a dropkick to the legs! Lethal looms over Darby, drags him around by the bad leg, and isolates the leg to stomp the knee! And then springboard STOMP it! Darby clutches his leg and crawls away but Lethal KICKS Darby’s leg into the corner. Lethal drags Darby up for a SHIN BREAKER! Darby hobbles back but Lethal stands him up.

Lethal whips corner to corner but Darby falls over halfway! Fans rally and duel as Lethal stalks Darby. Darby kicks out Lethal’s legs! Lethal falls right into the GUILLOTINE! Darby pulls on the head but Lethal fights up. Darby body scissors to add on but Lethal CLUBS away on the back leg! Lethal suplexes, but Darby slips around to a REVERSE DDT! Not quite a Scorpion Death Drop but still effective! Darby crawls to a cover, TWO! Fans rally as AEW goes picture in picture.

Darby and Lethal slowly rise, and Darby fires off forearms! Lethal wobbles, Darby runs the ropes, but Lethal CHOP BLOCKS Darby off the ropes! Darby crashes down and Lethal paces. Lethal grabs the leg, drops elbow after elbow on the knee, and then keeps dropping more elbows! Lethal lets off after TEN elbows, and fans fire up. Lethal looms over Darby, covers, TWO! Lethal looms over Darby again, drags him up, and suplexes, only for Darby to cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, and he CLOBBERS Darby! Lethal catches his breath, drags Darby by the bad leg and puts that leg on the ropes. The ref reprimands, so Lethal drags Darby from the ropes.

Lethal drops another elbow on the knee! Darby claws at Lethal but Lethal pulls back on a toehold! Darby endures while AEW goes to break.

Dynamite returns and the ref counts as Lethal digs his boot into Darby’s leg. Lethal lets off at 4, goes to the far corner, and he waits on Darby to get up. Fans rally, Darby drags himself up and Lethal runs in. Lethal blocks Darby’s boots, hooks the bad leg in the ropes, and STOMPS the leg down! Darby hobbles, Lethal reels him in, GERMAN SUPLEX! Darby writhes and clutches his leg again but fans still rally. Lethal puts Darby up top, CLUBS the bad leg again and again, then climbs up to join Darby. Fans duel, Darby throws body shots, and then he ROCKS Lethal with a forearm! Darby stands up, but Lethal grabs the bad leg.

Darby CLUBS away on Lethal, but Lethal SUPER DRAGON SCREWS! And then gets the legs, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR! Darby endures and fans “WOO~!” as Lethal puts on the pressure. Darby swipes at Lethal but can’t reach. Darby reaches for the ropes now, fans rally as he crawls and drags Lethal with him, but Lethal drags Darby away! Lethal puts on as much pressure as he can, but Darby turns things over and gets the ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets off in frustration and Darby goes to a corner. Lethal runs in, but into an elbow! Darby hops up the corner to get a boost, but Lethal denies the Throwback!

Darby’s leg jams and he hobbles, Lethal runs to handspring! LETHAL- NO, Darby table tops the Injection! Lethal sits up, Darby hops on, CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Lethal survives and fans fire up again. But wait, there’s Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh! They honored the request until now, and now they’re storming down to ringside! Darby climbs a corner but sees Sonjay, and then Lethal trips Darby up! Sonjay cheers but Lethal tells him and Satnam to go to the back. Lethal says he has this 1v1, but then Darby runs in to RANA! Darby has the cover, TWO! Lethal sunsets but Darby rolls through to come back with a prawn hold! Lethal rolls through that, but Darby sunsets!

Lethal rolls through the sunset to push Darby to one, only for Darby to roll through and step through! LAST SUPPER! DARBY WINS!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Sonjay & Satnam showed up, and maybe that cost Lethal! Lethal is frustrated, but Darby wants him to hold on. Darby is telling Lethal that he’s better than Sonjay & Satnam. Darby wants to shake hands on this, and fans chant “YES! YES!” Lethal is conflicted but Darby gives him a shove. Lethal shakes Darby’s hand! The only ones not happy about it are Sonjay & Satnam! But will they just have to accept that Lethal actually has some honor?

 

AEW looks closely at The Embassy.

Prince Nana says, “The day has come, my friends.” Originally under Tully Blanchard Enterprises, Prince Nana bought the managing rights to the Gates of Agony, Toa Liona & Kaun, and The Machine, Brian Cage. The Embassy is back, and the GOA will come after every single piece of gold in every single tag team division! And as for the TNT Championship… Brian Cage keeps hearing that this is somehow his comeback. It’s not a comeback, this is his arrival! And while Wardlow has had a hell of a year, that changes tonight, because he faces The Machine, the Swolverine!

And after tonight, Cage adds one more name to the list: The NEW AEW TNT Champion. “The answer to the question, ‘Who’s better than Brian Cage?’ is still, ‘Nobody.'” Nana tells everyone that you know the song: We in the money~! We in the money~! But will they be singing that song all the way to the bank?

AEW TNT Championship: Wardlow VS Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana!

The Clash of the Titans will have nothing on this! The Maestro of Mayhem has been conducting Powerbomb Symphonies week in and week out, but now he runs into a man very much his physical equal. Will the Machine not survive the war that’s coming? Or will this be the night the music died?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and in DC, THIS IS WAAAR~!

Fans rally up for “WARD~LOW!” as he stares down with Cage. Cage ROCKS Wardlow, powers him back and fires off in the corner!

Britt Baker speaks.

“Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, as the Face of the AEW Women’s Division but most importantly, as a Role Model, I feel morally obligated to answer the question that everybody’s been asking. And the answer is no, Saraya will NOT be wrestling in AEW. The doctors have NOT medically cleared her to compete. So let’s ship her off in some bubble wrap and send her on her way. But I guess that officially makes this my house now, right? Yours Truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.”

 

Six Woman Tag: Toni Storm, Willow Nightingale & Athena w/ Saraya VS Jamie Hayter, Serena Deeb & Penelope Ford w/ Britt Baker, Rebel & Kip Sabian!

A revolution has come to the AEW Women’s Division, and with the backing of the former WWE Diva’s Champion, the Interim AEW Women’s World Champion leads another battle against the Forces of Britt Baker! But will having Saraya’s support help Storm, Willow & Athena win the night? Or will someone score themselves a shortcut to a title match instead?

The trios sort out and Willow starts against Hayter in a rematch from last week’s Rampage. They circle, fans rally for both, but then Hayter tags out to Mrs. Superbad. Willow tags to Athena so Athena and Ford circle. Things speed up, Athena hurdles then drops but Ford leaps over. Ford comes back to tilt-o-whirl headscissor, but Athena handsprings through! Fans cheer as Athena and Ford reset. Ford runs in but into a sweep! Athena SHOTGUNS Ford down, then drags her up. Athena wrenches, whips, but Ford goes up the corner to BOOT back. Ford leaps but Athena catches her for a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!

Athena drags Ford up with a facelock but Ford RAMS her into the corner. Ford RAMS again, lets off, and both Hayter and Deeb hold Athena in place for the handspring back elbow! Tag to Deeb and fans cheer the Professor of Pro-Wrestling. Deeb EuroUppers, takes Athena off her feet, then fires up. Deeb whips Athena to ropes, Athena ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Tag to Storm, and she SHOTGUNS Deeb down! Storm drags Deeb up and TOSSES her across the way! Storm wrenches, CLUBS away on Deeb, and fans are torn. Britt protests, Saraya tells her to shush, and Storm runs to BOOT Deeb down!

Storm drags Deeb up, whips her to a corner, then runs in to uppercut! Storm holds Deeb in place, Hayter protests but the ref is busy with her so Athena gets in to forearm smash! Willow gets in to back body block! Storm HIP ATTACKS! Storm then drags Deeb up to reel her in. Hayter distracts again but Storm DECKS her, then DECKS Ford for good measure. But Deep CHOP BLOCKS Storm! Deeb rains down fists and fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref reprimands but Deeb lets off. Deeb glares at Athena and takes a swipe, then stands Storm up. Deeb EuroUppers, Storm staggers, and Deeb brings her around to bump off buckles. Deeb stomps a mudhole into Storm, then tags Ford. Ford pushes Storm back in to stomp a mudhole of her own! Tag to Hayter and she stomps away on Storm! The ref counts, Hayter lets off to drag Storm up into a snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Hayter hurries to keep Storm from her team and bumps her off buckles! Storm is down, Hayter tags Ford, and Ford drags Storm up to put on ropes. Ford CHOKES Storm and thrashes around, but lets off as the ref counts 4.

Ford argues with the ref but this is a distraction so Britt can CHOKE Storm! Britt lets off before she’s caught, and then Ford YANKS Storm into the ropes! Storm falls over, Ford drags her up again and wrenches to a wristlock. Tag to Hayter, she goes up and drops AX HANDLES on the bad arm! Hayter drags Storm up, tags Ford back in, and Ford goes up to drop AX HANDLES! Ford brings Storm around, tags Deeb, they mug Storm and Deeb brings Storm around to snapmare. Deeb wraps Storm up in a straitjacket stretch as Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally and Storm fights up to arm-drag free!

Storm stands to fire forearms on Deeb! Deeb goes low to get the takedown, and GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Storm clutches her leg while Deeb DECKS Willow! Athena avoids a shot, but Deeb hooks up Storm’s legs in a deathlock. Athena runs in, Deeb kicks her first, but Athena fights the suplex. Willow runs in but so does Hayter, and Hayter kicks Willow. STEREO SUPLEXES with the SNAP LOCK on the side! Fans cheer, they acknowledge that was good stuff. Deeb tags Ford, she drags Storm away, but Storm kicks her away! Ford tags Deeb ack in, and Deeb grabs Storm’s leg! Storm ENZIGURIS Deeb, hot tags to Hayter and Willow!

Fans fire up as Willow dodges and LARIATS Hayter! And ELBOWS! And BOOTS! Willow snarls, drags Hayter up to whip, and she hits a SPINEBUSTER! High stack, Deeb breaks it! Deeb stomps Willow, drags Hayter over and tags in. Deeb brings Willow up to throw uppercuts! Deeb CHOKES Willow on the ropes but the ref counts. Deeb lets off, Rebel talks trash and brings out a crutch! But Saraya snatches it! And then she swings on Rebel and Britt! Fans fire up, Deeb is distracted, and Willow cradles her! TWO! Deeb runs, Willow gets around to push and POUNCE! Fans fire up with Willow but Deeb tags Ford!

Ford runs in but into a scoop! Ford slips off to HEEL KICK! Willow goes down, but Athena reels Ford in for a Canadian Rack, CLIFFHANGER CODE BREAKER! Deeb SPEARS Athena! Storm SHOTGUNS Deeb! Hayter runs in, for an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER to Storm! Willow rises to SUPERKICK Hayter! Ford returns, goes Matrix to doge and CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Willow survives! Ford drags Willow up, runs to handspring, but Willow SHOTGUNS her while upside-down! Willow hauls Ford up, gut wrenches and DOCTOR BOMBS!! Cover, WILLOW’S TEAM WINS!

Winner: Toni Storm, Willow Nightingale & Athena, by pinfall

But Britt gets in to ruin the celebration because she gets in Saraya’s face. Britt keeps talking trash about if Saraya ain’t cleared, she doesn’t need to be here. But Saraya ROCKS Britt! Fans fire up as the brawl is on!! Hayter, Deeb, Ford and even Rebel get in, the brawl explodes! DC is loving this! Saraya TOSSES Britt out, and now she has Rebel all to herself! Rebel begs for mercy, but she gets a BOOT instead! Saraya shouts, “This is MY house!” Will Saraya prove to Britt that she can still go?

 

Backstage interview with Rush, Jose & Private Party.

Tony Schiavone notes that El Toro Blanco is taking on The Cowboy, Hangman Adam Page tonight, but it seems Jose The Assistant has “called the troops together.” And he did so because while Private Party showed up for work tonight, they haven’t been showing up in the ring. Jose has clips to prove it. Last week, Rush and Hangman brawling, but NO Private Party backing Rush up. Then the week before that, when Rush led The Butcher & The Blade in that blindside of Hangman, still no Private Party! Jose promises that Rush will blast Hangman again tonight. Rush tells Private Party to “do the right thing tonight!”

Jose lets Private Party know that they know Matt Hardy’s been talking with them. They better choose the right side in this. Jose and Rush leave, but will Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy do what’s right? Or will they do what La Faccion Ingobernables wants?

 

The Acclaimed head to the ring!

Fans are fired up as there’s balloons and a podium. Max Caster has the mic, so “Yo! Listen! Acclaimed on the mic, what I’m saying is hot. Even in the senators are insider trading our stock. We will never be approved like a home loan. We did it on our own cuz we homegrown! Even Joe Biden is lovin’ it. He said, ‘Scissor me timbers,’ and didn’t even stutter it! Yo, we put ’em away. Hands up cuz it’s National Scissoring Day!” Bowens gets the mic to say, “WASHINGTON DEEEE CEEEEE! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Fans fire up and sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” as the champs go to the podium.

Bowens says he is glad they’re singing that, cuz Daddy loves to scissor! But Washington, D.C, welcome to the very first ever National Scissoring Day celebration! It is a very special night, unlike anything in our great sport’s history, and it is brought to you by The Acclaimed, the most popular team in ALL of professional wrestling! Caster adds, “That’s right!” The winningest team in AEW! That’s right! The best damn homegrown team in AEW history! THAT’S RIGHT! And today, it was made official thanks to every single fan. The “Scissor Me Daddy Ass” T-Shirt is the NUMBER ONE BEST SELLER IN 2022!!

Bowens says most importantly, The Acclaimed, your #ForeverChamps, have brought home gold! That means AEW no longer stands for All Elite Wrestling. No, it stands for ACCLAIMED EVERY WEDNESDAY! But now, this is cause for celebration, and the Acclaimed celebrate by scissoring. Bowens knows a thing or two about that. They used to Babe Ruth the Sultan of Swat, so you can call Anthony Bowens the Sultan of Scissors! And there may be a few of you tuning in for the very first time tonight because National Scissoring Day was trending all day long. Let’s break it down for you. Scissoring is a handshake, a sign of friendship, and a sign of true teamwork.

The Acclaimed understand that the people want to be represented by a real team. “Not two dudes who were thrown together like Keith Lee and Sneaky Swerve.” Fans boo to support that point. Bowens says “Sneaky Swerve” would like us to believe that he and Keith deserve to be AEW Tag Team Champions. Sneaky Swerve would like us to believe that he and Keith are the most popular tag team in the industry. But they’re WRONG! EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! “Swerve, this isn’t your house.” Billy Gunn takes over here and says, “This is Daddy Ass’s house! Now for everybody in the building, and the millions…” “AND MILLIONS!” “… of people at home, it’s National Scissoring Day!”

That said, Billy was sent down to City Hall today, because he’s a big deal, and he was asked to present The Acclaimed with this. Billy brings out a big package wrapped in gold. Could it be…? The Acclaimed unwrap the package and… it’s the SCISSORS TO THE CITY! Y’know, like you see when someone has to cut a big ribbon. Bowens is all fired up, but he’s running with scissors! Billy tells him don’t do that. Bowens apologizes, and Caster goes to the podium. “Folks, at this point in the service, we’d like everybody to turn to your right and your left to offer a sign of peace to your neighbor via scissoring. Peace be with you, Anthony.” The Acclaimed scissor finger and the fans join in!

“And as National Scissoring Day comes to a close, I wanna talk about greatness. Yeah, guys, I wanna talk about greatness. About 40 years ago, here in this city, Washington DC, greatness was achieved when Washington won the Super Bowl. Yeah. Super Bowl 17. A lot of people here probably don’t remember that. I wasn’t even born yet, but it means a lot to me, because my dad was on that championship team.” Fans cheer for that, and Billy even hugs Caster. Caster continues to say, “And his Super Bowl ring is his prized possession. He wears it proudly to this day. And he achieved greatness here all those years ago, just like The Acclaimed achieved greatness when we won the AEW Tag Team titles.

“But this city represents, also, the ugly side of America, the division in our country. But one thing we can agree on is that everyone loves The Acclaimed.” Fans cheer that! So put your scissors up right now! Cuz it’s their duty to bring everyone together. Today, there is no Left or Right, no blue or red. “The Acclaimed wears pink, and everyone looks good in pink, baby! We are the People’s Choice, we are the People’s Voice, and we’re gonna make history here tonight. We’re gonna do the first-ever bipartisan scissor to unite this country. Let’s do it!” Fans fire up as the trio puts up the fingers… “Whose House?” Swerve Strickland is here to rain on the parade!

Fans boo but Swerve has a mic to say, “This is the most idiotic thing I’ve ever seen. Oh, congratulations on your whole number one selling T-shirt on AEWShop.com. Congratulations, Billy. Now some more kids can go to school and get suspended again in this decade like they did two ago. These are your tag champ role models you want for your children? These guys, right? Y’know what? Those two tag team championships shouldn’t even be on your shoulders, they should both be on Billy’s, because if it wasn’t for you, Swerve In Our Glory would still be tag team champions.”

Fans boo but Swerve says that for him and Keith to get back to what they do, they gotta get back to business. That means taking Billy out. So next week, in Toronto, it’ll be “Daddy Ass” himself, Billy Gunn stepping into whose house? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” And it’ll be one-on-one. And don’t even think about bringing those two fingers up in Swerve’s face. You do that, Swerve will make sure Billy never uses that hand again. Because we all know rock beats scissors every day. Swerve even has a rock in his hand! But wait, Mark Sterling is storming out here? Sterling says, “I don’t wanna say I told you so, but I told you so! Paper covers rock, pal!”

Sterling brings back his petitions and says he’s been calling out Swerve for being a jerk for months! No one was listening, but Sterling expects that from the “idiots” in the crowd and watching at home. But the Acclaimed should wanna hear him out. They need Sterling. Fans boo that. But Sterling says they need him to beat Swerve because they can’t do it themselves. We saw Grand Slam, there was some controversy. So let’s all join together so Sterling can represent them in the fight against Swerve, and seal the deal tonight! Let’s give the people what they want, and that is the three of them scissoring Sterling! What?

Sterling turns around into a CHOP! And then Billy scoops to SLAM Sterling! Caster and Billy open Sterling up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS!! Swerve rolls his eyes and leaves but Billy says wait! Before Swerve leaves, Billy ACCEPTS! Next week, Toronto Dynamite, Swerve VS Billy! But okay, Swerve can leave now, because The Acclaimed has just one more thing to do. They… SCISSOR!! But will Swerve Strickland crush Daddy Ass when Dynamite goes north?

 

AEW looks at The Dark Order VS Death Triangle!

Alex Reynolds says that this Friday will be bittersweet. It’s the second anniversary of Mr. Brodie Lee’s last ever match, but also the night that the Dark Order beats Death Triangle to become NEW AEW World Trios Champions! But PAC responds by telling Dark Order that while their “recipe” is fine, Death Triangle’s “ingredients are just a little bit more premium.” Preston Vance says, “What better way to win the Trios Championships than on the anniversary of Brodie Lee’s last match.” Penta El Zero Miedo says Death Triangle is the best trio in the universe, because they have CERO MIEDO!

John Silver mocks Pac’s accent when he says The Dark Order is coming for the Trios Championships! Not bad. But will it really be the Dark Order’s time to shine when Death Triangle is on a Rampage?

 

Backstage interview with Madison Rayne & Skye Blue.

Schiavone introduces the coach of the AEW Women’s Division, and she says it has been great being here. In the few months she’s been here, she’s seen endless potential in the division, particularly in Skye. Skye is truly a rising star and she’s becoming quite the wrestler. But TayJay, Tay Melo & Anna Jay “A S,” walk over and say this is a joke. Madison, as Skye’s coach? What Skye really needs is a sports entertainment coach, to give Skye charisma, personality and flair. Skye says for once, TayJay might be right. She could work on her “charisma” while they can work on their wrestling. But uh, there’s two and two, and then Rampage this Friday. What do they say?

Tay says that’s perfect! Because as Jericho always says, sports entertainer always beat pro-wrestlers. TayJay head and Madison copies Matthew Menard by saying, “It’s gonna be enter-tening.”

 

Hangman Page VS Rush w/ Jose!

The Cowboy and El Toro Blanco were the last two in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal, and in the end, Hangman won the prize. But things are far from settled between these two, will Hangman also avenge John Silver? Or will he get the horns before ever making it to the title match?

The bell rings and fans are thunderous already for “COWBOY S*IT!” Rush rushes in, Hangman dodges and fires hands. Rush gives them back, they brawl and fans fire up! Rush ROCKS Hangman but Hangman comes back to CHOP! Rush CHOPS, Hangman CHOPS, and now it’s a CHOP fight! Rush fires up and eggs Hangman on so Hangman CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Hangman shakes out his hand, runs, but Rush blasts past, gets around and waistlocks. Hangman switches but Rush switches back to shove Hangman away. Hangman goes up and out to the apron but Rush rolls back to tranquilo!

Jose anchors Hangman’s foot! Rush then rushes in to DECK Hangman! Rush goes out after Hangman to drag him up and RAM him into railing! Rush brings Hangman around to SMACK off the chair in the corner, then he drags Hangman up again. Jose distracts the ref so Rush can use the camera cable to LASH Hangman! And then CHOKE him! The ref sees something’s up and reprimands, Rush lets off at 4. Rush soaks up the heat then drags Hangman up to RAM into more railing! Rush keeps on Hangman as AEW goes picture in picture.

Rush RAMS Hangman into steel steps! The ref reprimands, Rush puts Hangman in the ring and he soaks up more heat. Rush gets in as Hangman goes to a corner, and Rush looms over him. Rush drags Hangman up, CHOPS him, then ROCKS him with a forearm. Rush whips corner to corner, runs in and KNEES Hangman, then snapmares him down for a basement dropkick! Hangman writhes but Rush tranquilos again. Rush soaks up more heat from DC, then stalks Hangman to another corner. Hangman CHOPS back, so Rush CHOPS. Hangman CHOPS, Rush CHOPS, the CHOP fight is back!

Rush ROCKS Hangman with a right, sits Hangman down in the corner and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Rush lets off and “apologizes,” but Jose CHOKES Hangman behind the ref’s back! Rush pretends he can’t hear the ref, and Jose lets off before he gets caught. Rush stomps Hangman more, then drags him up to slingshot suplex! Rush CHOKES Hangman but the ref counts. Rush lets off and “apologizes,” but then he tells the fans to shut up. Rush goes back to Hangman, kicks him around, but Hangman throws body shots! Rush KICKS Hangman down, then stomps him more! Rush pretends to take Hangman’s head off and kick it into the crowd.

Dynamite returns to single picture, and Hangman throws hands! Rush ROCKS Hangman, whips him to ropes, but Hangman reverses. Rush ducks ‘n’ dodges to CROSSBODY, but into Hangman’s FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman fires up with the kip up! Fans fire up, but Rush kips up to ROCK Hangman! Rush soaks up the heat, and MJF is backstage with his poker chip. Rush KICKS Hangman, whips him corner to corner, but Rush runs in to be put on the apron. Hangman triangle jump LARIATS! Fans fire up as Hangman then aims to PLANCHA! Direct hit and down goes Rush! Fans fire up as Hangman drags Rush up and into the ring.

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

The Cowboy puts the bull away and is heading to Cincinnati with momentum! But wait, Private Party heads out! Are they going to do “the right thing?” Wait! Here comes MOXLEY! The AEW World Champion isn’t gonna let Quen & Kassidy rough up his challenger. Moxley gets a mic and gets in the ring as Private Party backs away. Moxley and Hangman go forehead to forehead, and Moxley says, “I’ve been waiting for this for three years. Three years of AEW Dynamite. Three years of watching you, three years of studying you because I knew this was coming. Three years of us circling each other. Between the two of us, we’ve beaten just about everybody there is to beat here in AEW. Except each other.

“On October 18th, at the Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, my home arena, the arena I literally grew up in… For real, I used to smoke and drink under the bridge outside.” But on that Tuesday night, Moxley and Hangman will be one last man standing here in AEW. In 13 days, Cowboy, Moxley leaves his house, walks down the street, shows up at Heritage Bank Center, and will break Hangman’s face. Moxley will choke Hangman until he turns blue, because he is in the way of Moxley being the one true top guy in AEW, of being the world champion, and of being THE best in the world!

“And I’ve all the respect in the world for your abilities, I have all the respect in the world for your talents. I admire you as a person. But when that bell rings, with the world championship on the line, I ain’t got any gaddamn respect for anything.” Hangman takes the mic and says, “If you’ve been waiting for this so long, where the hell are you going right now?” Fans like the sound of that! Moxley gets back in the ring, fans chant for “COWBOY SH*T!” but Moxley says, “You’re a sweet kid. And like a lot of kids around here, you say a bunch of bulls*it and your mouth gets you in trouble. I’m gonna let you off the hook just once. But this is your final warning. You’ve got 13 days. You watch your damn mouth.”

Moxley leaves, having put it in simple terms. But MJF is smiling as he watches this backstage. Whether it’s Maniac or Cowboy, will The Devil come to collect from the winner?

 

Backstage interview with Willow Nightingale.

Schiavone says that was a big win tonight as Willow got the pin, her career is on the upswing. Willow thanks Schiavone for that, she is stoked! But she’s more than just “happy to be here,” she is on a roll! At Battle of the Belts, she wants to challenge for the AEW TBS Championship! Uh, what? The Baddies barge in and give Willow trash. Willow shoves Leila & Kiera back, but Jade says, “What? I already beat you like, twice.” Singles and tag! So it seems Willow just wants to be #39. Willow says Jade may have beaten her twice, but how about a third? Jade’s sure confident that she’ll go 39-0, but no one is undefeated forever! So what if Jade actually does go 38-1, and it’s Willow who is “The One!?”

Willow looks at the title then takes her leave. Will she be the one to leave with that title on Friday? Or will Willow’s roll hit a wall?

 

Luchasaurus w/ Christian Cage VS Fuego Del Sol!

Captain Charisma leads the way for his own personal kaiju, both of them having battered and bruised Jungle Boy after their betrayals. Will Luchasaurus continue to demolish all put in his path? Or will the Fire of the Sun burn down the towering tyrant lizard?

The bell rings, Fuego rushes in, but Luchasaurus catches him with a choke grip! For the CHOKE SLAM! But that’s not enough for Christian, and Luchasaurus drags Fuego up again. Straitjacket, torture rack, EXTINCTION!! Cover, Luchasaurus wins!

Winner: Luchasaurus, by pinfall

Christian is all smiles, but he still wants Luchasaurus to take out the trash. Luchasaurus gut wrenches Fuego to a Crucifix, but HERE COMES JUNGLE BOY! He has a chair and he JAMS Luchasaurus with it! Fuego is spared but JB SMACKS Luchasaurus on the back! Luchasaurus falls out of the ring but is right back up! Christian keeps Luchasaurus from rushing back in at the angry Jack Perry! JB gets a mic to say, “Look at me, you traitor! You were my best friend in the entire world. You were my BEST FRIEND! And after everything that we have been through together, you chose him. And you broke my heart.”

JB takes a moment before he continues. “But now, I am going to break your fingers. I am going to break your nose. I am going to break your arm! I am going to break you piece by miserable piece until I break YOU! You pick the time and you pick the place, I’ll be ready.” Christian snatches the mic to say, “I told you not to come back this week, Jungle Boy. And it’ll be just as easy for us to step into this ring, drop you, and leave you in a pool of your own piss and blood. But y’know what? You got me thinking here. You said we pick the time and place? Well we’re in your nation’s capital of Washington, DC. And apparently I’m the only honest person in Washington, DC, because I can tell you right now, that match will not be happening in this cesspool in front of these losers!”

Fans boo but Christian says the time is next week on Dynamite! The place is Christian’s hometown of Toronto! Will Jungle Boy finally get his revenge in front of Christian’s hometown crowd?

And of course, win or lose from Rampage, Pac defends his All-Atlantic Championship against Trent Beretta! Will #JustTrent be facing a two-belt or one-belt Bastard to close out the night? Speaking of which…

AEW looks closer at PAC VS Trent!

The Bastard says, “Trent Beretta. You’re upset that I hurt your little buddy, are ya? Your ‘best friend.'” Trent says “Pac calls himself a Bastard. I guess it’s cuz he talks in a fake scary voice and he makes mean faces. And he needs to use a hammer to win matches and hurt our friend.” Pac says Cassidy blindsided him and yet Pac’s the bad guy. Trent says this Friday, he gets revenge. And he won’t need a hammer to hurt someone. But Pac says, “I’m a bastard, what did you expect? But at Battle of the Belts, I’ll have no problem hurting you, as well.” Trent says, “NEW All-Atlantic Champ. Hands in, boys.” Chuckie T is there to join in, but will Best Friends be celebrating a vengeful victory?

 

Daniel Garcia & Bryan Danielson VS Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara!

The ROH Pure Champion has been torn between the influence of his hero in The American Dragon and his mentor in The Wizard. He has also been torn between the definitions of a “professional wrestler” and a “sports entertainer,” and which one fits him best. But one thing is for sure, Garcia wants some respect from Jericho, not cheap gifts and cheap tactics! Will Garcia and his hero humble the ROH World Champion and the Spanish God? Or will the Jericho Appreciation Society just sports entertain their way to another cheap victory?

The teams sort out and Garcia starts with Jericho, student against mentor and ROH Pure Champion VS ROH World Champion! Fans chant, “F YOU SAMMY!” while Jericho wants to uphold the Code of Honor. Garcia hopes he’s honest, and shakes Jericho’s hand. Jericho doesn’t try any tricks, they circle, and tie up. Jericho arm-drags Garcia fast and then holds up his hands in victory. Sammy rallies Jericho but Jericho and Garcia tie up. Garcia denies the arm-drag and wags his finger. Jericho rushes in, Garcia gets around to trip Jericho up, floats all over him, and mounts! Fans cheer but Jericho is upset.

Garcia gator rolls Jericho around, floats around again and slaps away on Jericho’s head! Garcia kicks dirt at him, too! Jericho is upset more, and he CHOPS Garcia! Garcia CHOPS back! Jericho CHOPS, Garcia CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Garcia whips, Jericho reverses, and Sammy trips Garcia up! Sammy pretends he didn’t but fans boo. Sammy tags in while Jericho seems hesitant, and Sammy rains down fists! Fans boo but Sammy stops to taunt Bryan. Sammy goes back to Garcia, he drags Garcia up and CLUBS Garcia. Sammy suplexes, Garcia slips out and shoves to dropkick the legs out!

Sammy crawls but Garcia tags Bryan! Bryan dodges Sammy to DROPKICK Jericho! Bryan fires off on Sammy with haymakers, then he EuroUppers Sammy hard in the corner! Bryan KICKS away in the corner, whips Sammy corner to corner, but Sammy reverses, only for Bryan to go up and over! Bryan keeps moving, he ducks Sammy to DIVE onto Jericho! Bryan sees Sammy coming and ROCKS him out of the tope! Bryan goes up top and fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture!

Sammy staggers, into Bryan’s MISSILE DROPKICK! Bryan kips up and fans fire up. Bryan waits on Sammy to sit up, to give him a KICK! And a KICK! And a KICK! Sammy sits up but into more KICKS! Then the BUZZ- NO, Sammy ducks to roll Bryan up! TWO, into the omoplata! LEBELL LOCK!! Jericho rushes in to BOOT Bryan! The ref reprimands but too late, Jericho tags in. But Bryan drop toeholds Jericho to get the arms! CATTLE MUTILATION! Jericho endures but Bryan tips over to then chicken wing Jericho for a TIGER- NO, Jericho victory rolls through and has the legs! WALLS OF JERICHO!!

Bryan endures now as Jericho sits deep! Garcia gets in but Jericho lets off. The two stare down, but Bryan rolls Jericho up! TWO, and Bryan CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS, Bryan EuroUppers! Bryan fires off more uppercuts, whips Jericho to ropes but Jericho reverses and CLOBBERS Bryan! Jericho then DECKS Garcia with a sucker punch! Jericho seems conflicted after he did it, but he turns around into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Sammy tags in, goes up top and leaps, but Bryan catches him for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Sammy ends up in a corner, Bryan fires up and runs in, to DROPKICK! Sammy wobbles, into Bryan’s BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Dynamite returns to single picture, Excalibur assures us that is the final commercial break, and Bryan climbs up top! Jericho trips Bryan up, Sammy GAMANGIRIS! Sammy goes up top after Bryan, for a SUPER SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and fans rally up, but Sammy rains down fists. Sammy snarls and fires up, and he sits Bryan up for a chinlock. Sammy then pushes Bryan down to stomp. Sammy tags Jericho, they double whip and double shoulder Bryan over! Sammy spins and poses with Jericho, Le Sex Gods are back at it. Jericho drags Bryan up, tags Sammy back in, and Jericho CHOPS!

Jericho and Sammy mug Bryan with haymakers and CHOPS, then Sammy whips. Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges as fans bring back “F YOU SAMMY!” DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide! Both men are down, fans rally up and both men crawl, hot tags to Garcia and Jericho! These two stare down and fans fire up more. But Sammy jumps in, only for Garcia to DECK him outta the sky! Garcia and Jericho stare down again, and the brawl is on! Fans are thunderous as Garcia gets the edge! Garcia stomps a mudhole, the ref counts but Garcia won’t let off so the ref backs him down!

Fans boo but the ref missed it as she was checking on Sammy! Sammy crawls himself to cover Garcia, the JAS wins!!

Winners: Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

Another cheap trick and the sports entertainers win! The rest of the JAS comes out to celebrate with them, and of course SamTay kiss. Jericho still seems torn having to do this to his protégé, but is this all the more reason for Garcia to leave the JAS and join the BCC? Can Bryan redeem himself and ROH by taking the world title away from Jericho? Or is the future of ROH nothing but the OCHO?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for AEW to celebrate the Dynamite Anniversary while also serving as a go-home to “Friday Fight Night.” However, with that, the elephant in the room needs to be addressed. After getting at it via Twitter, Sammy and Andrade couldn’t help but throw down backstage in person. Tony Khan sent Andrade home when Sammy’s been the instigator the whole time, but Sammy was scheduled for tonight’s main event so oF CoUrSe SaMmY sTaYs~! I agree with a fan sign I saw tonight: HIRE HR EXPERTS. This shouldn’t be happening to a company that is meant to be the positive alternative to what WWE was under Vince. Ironically, while scraps happened (Jericho oddly being a part of a few), it never went like this with Vince.

But some credit must be given to Tony Khan, him pivoting from the hyped up Mask VS Contract of Vance VS Andrade to a fun AEW World Trios Championship match was good thinking. The Dark Order sadly won’t win, despite it being the anniversary of Brodie Lee’s last match and by proxy, a night to remember his memory, but Vance was likely losing his mask anyway so a bit of a silver lining. Pac and Trent also have a good promo vignette for their 1v1 title match, but I think Pac is sweeping the night. And I think after Pac wins, Ethan Page needs to call him out since that was the story set up weeks ago when Ethan said he wanted that All-Atlantic title.

We got an awesome opener from MJF and Yuta, and of course MJF wins to have momentum for his inevitable cash-in. However, I am really intrigued by how The Firm took initiative and did the Heel stuff for him. MJF didn’t want it that way because perhaps deep down, he really does respect Yuta given their history from before AEW. Regal stepping up was also really cool, and I guess we’ll see how this goes. MJF watching Hangman VS Rush was also a nice touch. Hangman VS Rush was an awesome match, too, and LFI putting the screws to Private Party is really good stuff. Moxley defending Hangman to preserve their match is good stuff, and they had a great promo interaction. BCC is definitely winning against LFI by pinning Private Party and that’ll push #HardyParty VS LFI/AFO.

Great match from Darby VS Lethal, and I should’ve figured Sonjay & Satnam would still show up at some point. We got a similarly intriguing moment where Darby got Lethal to show some respect, and maybe Lethal is on his way to changing things. Great TNT Championship match, Wardlow and Cage are guys who both defy expectations for their musculature, but I had a feeling Wardlow would retain. Great brawl as The Embassy goes after Wardlow, only to bring out Samoa Joe and FTR. FTR VS GOA is going to be good stuff, but FTR will surely retain. And of course Luchasaurus wins his match, it wouldn’t have mattered who that was. JB showing up was a great surprise, and now we’re getting JB VS Luchasaurus in Toronto, that’ll be great stuff.

Great Six Woman Tag, and it really was great that Willow got the pin. Willow going after the TBS Championship was a bit of a surprise, but I suppose Face VS Heel dictates this match-up. I’m a little surprised this is happening when we got a tease of Jade VS Nyla last week, but I guess they just want to get Jade to 40 already. Jade will beat Willow, she’ll probably beat Nyla, and then who knows, maybe the 41st match is where Jade finally loses. As for Storm, I feel like they definitely need to push Hayter since fans love her, too.

At the same time, they are definitely teasing Saraya’s return to the ring and she’ll definitely have a match with Britt, either 1v1 or a tag match so it isn’t all on Saraya in case there’s ring rust. Skye & Rayne VS TayJay will be a decent match for Rampage but that promo was not the best. On one hand, TayJay may have a point that Skye is still green in presenting a personality. But Skye saying TayJay, each part having proven themselves in the ring these last three years, is bad. To me, Tay and Jay could each believably take down Rayne, because I still don’t see “it” in Rayne.

National Scissoring Day was hilarious stuff, and was proof that fans really do love The Acclaimed. But while I expected the Gunn Sons to interrupt because of how they’ve been talking crap, it was whose house? SWERVE’S HOUSE! Swerve VS Billy is going to be great, but I would think Swerve wins. Maybe Keith & Swerve have to beat Austin & Colten to get that rematch? Or do we get a Triple Threat again to clear out multiple teams at once? I did like that Sterling just expected The Acclaimed to side with him against their common enemy of Swerve, only for Sterling to take the hit.

I will say, for the backstage crap that went down between Sammy and Andrade, we still got a good group promo from the JAS, a great vignette to hype up the main event, and a great main event match. Unfortunately, Sammy’s nuclear heat detracted from the story that was going on, maybe they should’ve just called an audible and put Hager or one of the 2Point0 boys in there. And in the end, the JAS cheats again because duh, they’re Heels. But with Jericho VS Bryan III for the ROH World title is going to be great stuff next week. With Jericho getting the win here tonight, I would think Bryan wins next week, but we’ll just have to wait and see. I also totally expect Garcia to have a match with Jericho to decide his fate: join BCC as a pro-wrestler, or be stuck in JAS as a sports entertainer.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell's AEW Dark Results & Report! (10/4/22)

Dark paves the way to the Dynamite Anniversary!

AEW is about to celebrate Dynamite’s Anniversary, but there’s plenty of action in the Dark! Will Dante Martin & Matt Sydal outwork the Workhorsemen?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Marina Shafir VS Sio Nieves; Shafir wins.
  • Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters VS AR Fox; Daivari wins.
  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/Mark Sterling VS Rohit Raju & Invictus Khash; Nese & Woods win.
  • Abadon VS Freya States; Abadon wins.
  • Slim J w/ The Trustbusters VS Blake Christian; Slim J wins.
  • Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi w/ Peter Avalon VS Eli Isom & Chris Farrow; Nemeth & Bononi win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Terry Kid; Boudreaux wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Skye wins.
  • The Iron Savages w/ JT Davidson VS Gus De La Vega & Levy Valenzuela; The Iron Savages win.
  • Dante Martin & Matt Sydal VS The Workhorsemen; Dante & Sydal win.

QUICK NOTES

Good line-up here. I feel like the Trustbusters are gonna sweep the night because they’ll all be supporting each other with Heel tactics. Honestly, I feel Blake Christian and AR Fox would each win their match-ups if they didn’t have to worry about outside distractions. Good to see the former Bear Country, now Iron Savages, Boulder & Bronson, back in action. They’ll definitely get a good return win. And Dante & Sydal VS JD Drake & Anthony Henry is a great tag match, and I would think Dante & Sydal win that.
