The Acclaimed VS Justin Blax & Louie Valle!

Anthony Bowens and Max Caster have a tag team now, so clearly this is going to become a regular thing. Caster has the mic so “The Acclaimed just signed, put pen to paper. But this dude here needs an escalator, just to get in my face. I stomp the haters. I spank you like you on some bad behavior. This dude’s too crude to even diss.

Peter Avalon welcomes us(?) to a private dinner.

Avalon shouts at them to get out! SLAP. Avalon’s date storms out but “Pretty Peter Avalon” says it is still PPA All Day! But it seems like his dates haven’t lasted long at all. Will the third time be the charm?

The Heavy Metal Rebel doesn’t mind keeping an eye on this next match, given who are in it.

 

The Hybrid2 VS Shawn Dean & Adam Priest!

Jack Evans and Angelico have gotten on SoCal Uncensored’s bad side but haven’t stuck around long enough to settle the fight. Will they at least back up all the trash Evans talks against The Captain and… Adam?

Winners: The Hybrid2, by submission

Kaz admits he was impressed, but that doesn’t mean they’re better than The Addiction. Evans talks trash, “I see you!” Kaz says that’s obvious, he’s sitting at ringside. Will SCU shut TH2 up as they take them down?

 

The Lucha Brothers VS David Ali & Ashton Starr!

Before they go 1v1 once again, Penta El Zero M and Rey Fenix want to prove to everyone that they can still be the incredible tag team they are. Will they be able to stay united before going head to head?

The teams sort out and the Heavyweight Killer starts against Penta. Fans rally up already as the two circle and approach. Ali talks smack but Penta shoves him. Penta makes him listen to “CERO! MIEDO!” Ali gives the smack talk back, basically telling Penta to kiss his ass. Penta instead back kicks hard then headlcoks tight. Ali powers out, things speed up and Penta leaps over.

Cover, Lucha Brothers win!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Ali and Starr did pretty good but only for a moment, Penta and Fenix are still that damn good! But will they still be on good terms when it’s hermano a hermano?

 

Leva Bates VS Dani Jordyn!

The Librarian dumped Peter Avalon and we see how he’s taking it. But will the Real Mean Girl pick on Leva now that she’s all alone?

The bell rings and Leva seems to mistake the Burn Book for legitimate reading material. She thinks she and Dani can bond over that, and fans chant, “Book Club! Book Club!” Dani shows Leva her page, which has “Where’s Peter?” on it. Leva gets mad, takes off the glasses and shoves Dani! Dani shoves back, but Leva gets around to roll Dani to a SUPERKICK!

Ivelisse & Diamante VS Jennacide & Dreamgirl Ellie!

The Women’s Tag Cup winners have been winning again and again, but they need to keep winning to prove those medals are worth it! Will La Sicaria and the Cuban Diamond keep going until they’re golden?

The teams sort out and Ivelisse starts against the wrestling cyborg. Ivelisse obviously doesn’t take her seriously so she slaps Jenna’s glasses away! Jenna shoves Ivelisse down!

Jurassic Express VS Sonny Kiss & Joey Janela!

Jersey’s Finest are back together in the ring but their road trip to the top might be off to a bumpy restart. Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus have been barreling down the tracks, will Jurassic Express run the Concrete Rose and Bad Boy off the road?

Janela was late to kicking out at the count of 4, Jurassic Express has already won! But there’s much respect between these teams as they all stand and celebrate together. Will a boy and his dinosaur be the ones to challenge the AEW Tag Team Champions in the aftermath of Full Gear?


My Thoughts:

Not a bad Dark here. I like that the last two, from both before and after Full Gear, are under ten matches. That’s the sweet spot for Dark, in my opinion. It was great to see D-Von’s sons in action, I am hoping Team TNT has a huge career ahead of them. I am also starting to like Max Caster for being a Heel, he’s doing great with these raps about his opponents, it’s very Thuganomics Cena. The team getting a name is also a bit of a sign that they could do some big stuff. Top Flight had a decent match but I feel it could’ve been better if not for Frankie Thomas. Was he okay after that first arm-drag? He might’ve gotten rattled but didn’t want to stop since this was his chance to be on air. But I’m sure Top Flight will be winning even more as AEW adds even more to its already illustrious tag division.

TH2 and the Lucha Brothers do great for themselves, and I like that Kaz was out for commentary for just that one match with TH2. Leva and Dani had a fun match with the book gags, and it’s great Leva gets a win. Peter Avalon’s new gimmick is actually going pretty well, I love the twist that they were actually in a fancy elevator. Still wondering if Avalon gets a new manager through this after all, it could be a way to give a new recruit some shine. For that matter, Jennacide and Dreamgirl Ellie got some great shine from Ivelisse and Diamante. While AEW let Kris Statlander go based on COVID related travel issues, if they ever get to sign her back, I want either Kris VS Jenna or them as a team. Galaxy’s Greatest Alien and the cyborg make for a great combination for us sci-fi fans.

Commentary with Starks was great again, especially during Angels VS Fuego. Angels and Fuego have a really good, really fast match, and Dark Order as a whole is being kept strong outside of big things like matches with Orange Cassidy. The main event was really good, too, but clearly Jurassic Express is on a roll. With the Young Bucks now champions, there are any number of great match-ups they can have. Though I was kind of wondering why FTR never gave Jungle Boy and “the dumbass dinosaur” as they called him their Brush of Greatness. We have a long way before AEW Revolution 2021, so maybe Jurassic Express fights their way up the ranks in a huge tournament or something.

My Score: 8/10

Winner: Darby Allin

The coffin didn’t drop, but it did slam shut! Darby survives this quite horrific battle with Brody, but will things only escalate with Buddy Matthews back and Sting going after Malakai?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Y’know, I was thinking. Since y’all’re coming at me with your ‘interim’ just about every two seconds, and we already have the FTW belt, just for fun, what if we called this the FYI belt? Just an idea. This was forged in Cincinnati, Ohio, in Piccadilly. And just like the famed Hart Dungeon in Calgary, this championship is about pain and how much you can endure. For over two decades, we have watched the last survivor of the Dungeon, ‘Lionheart’ Chris Jericho, and we have watched his fighting spirit on full display. Tonight, I’m going to test it. And I am going to push it to its breaking point. And Chris, if your fighting sprit doesn’t break, your body will.”

 

Chris Jericho responds!

“After two and a half years, tonight, Chris Jericho takes back what’s rightfully his. Tonight, I will become the new AEW World Champion! I’m gonna beat ya, Moxley, and I’m gonna tell ya why. You wanted to face Lionheart Chris Jericho. You wanted to face the last survivor of Stu Hart’s Dungeon. Well be careful what you wish for, Mox! Cuz Stu wasn’t some kind of loveable old man, no. He was vicious! He was violent! He was a sadist! And the pain he put me through is something I never wanted to think about again. Until tonight.

“You talk about painting the canvas red with blood and scattering teeth across the ring. Well you can fix a tooth. You can heal a cut. But what I’m gonna do to you isn’t so easily fixable. I’m gonna twist you, Mox. I’m gonna turn you, and wrench the sh*t outta you tonight! I was the first AEW World Champion, and tonight, Lionheart Chris Jericho, the last survivor of Stu Hart’s Dungeon, will be the NEXT AEW World Champion! I guaran-effing-tee it!!”

The Young Bucks are on the Cutler Cam.

Matt & Nick Jackson have Brandon Cutler follow them because they need to get this on tape. The Bucks visit the Dark Order and Hangman Page. Sorry to barge in, but they mean no disrespect. They just wanted this on camera. John Silver says that’s fine, they have a BTE bit to film later anyway. Evil Uno asks Hangman and the Bucks if the rest of them should step out for this. No, no, it’s fine. The Bucks want the whole world to know this: They thank Hangman for saving them last week when he didn’t have to. Word on the street is, The Undisputed Elite are going to be around for a long time, and Hangman didn’t have to run them off.

The world has seen how the Bucks have treated Hangman, from what they’ve said to what they’ve done. They’re not proud of that and would take it all back if they could. So, Matt has been thinking and reminiscing. His favorite, most fun time of his career was when the three of them and The Elite were together, runnin’ and gunnin’ and doing this. They were building the revolution that became AEW. The friendship, the camaraderie, but then after AEW became a reality, things just got really weird. Matt knows Hangman felt that, too. Maybe it was the money, the TV time, the fame, but the Bucks got weird and selfish and if they could take it all back, they would.

So Matt just wants to say he is sorry. He means it. And… They’re here in this building, the very building Hangman won the AEW World Championship. Matt stood from afar and was so proud of Hangman, but he couldn’t even man up and say it! Hangman became a superstar! He wasn’t that other guy in The Elite, he WAS the Elite that night. Matt is so proud of Hangman, and wished he had enjoyed the journey over the destination. They can never get that time back. And Matt isn’t sure who he is anymore. He looks in the mirror and wonders if the internet trolls are right that he and Nick are awful. Maybe those people are on to something! Maybe they’re bad people.

But Matt knows one thing: when they’re around Hangman, he brings out the good in them. That is why Cutler’s camera is right here. The Bucks want to ask Hangman here and now: Will he be their third man in the trios tournament? The Hung Bucks can take on anyone! What does Hangman say? Huh? One last time! Hangman knew this would happen. He’d love to, guys, but he can’t. He knows Matt just said he was so proud of Hangman winning the world title and all that, but… The Bucks didn’t, The Dark Order did. These guys have been there for Hangman for those years The Bucks weren’t.

And in this AEW World Trios Championship tournament, Hangman feels this is The Dark Order’s chance. He feels he should have their backs the way they’ve always had his. He won’t be in the tournament at all, the Dark Order guys will be the team. So Hangman can’t be in their corner and in the Bucks’ corner at the same time. Hangman is sorry, but the Bucks get that. Hangman does know the Bucks should find someone who would never turn their backs on them. The Bucks get that. It’s fine. They can talk later. Good luck, Dark Order! Cutler asks The Bucks if they think Hangman meant him for the tournament. SHUT UP, BRANDON!

 

Jungle Boy is here!

Fans swing their arms and sing along while the pyro goes off! Jungle Jack is joining commentary for this one, but he doesn’t feel it’ll be that long. Because it’s LUCHASAURUS!

Luchasaurus VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake!

Jurassic Express is united, but JB is letting the wrestling dinosaur run his own course. Will Luchasaurus go all Godzilla on one half of the Workhorsemen?

The bell rings and Henry rushes in with forearms, but Luchasaurus TOSSES him to a corner! And then clotheslines! Luchasaurus hauls Henry up to pop him around for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Henry flounders, JD coaches him up, but Luchasaurus storms up on him. Henry ENZIGURIS, but Luchasaurus doesn’t budge! Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Henry down! Luchasaurus hauls Henry back up, for the FOSSILIZER! Cover, Luchasaurus wins!

Winner: Luchasaurus, by pinfall

JB knew he wouldn’t be here long. But wait, Christian Cage is applauding from the back. “Impressive win, Luchasaurus. Now, Jungle Boy, I was gonna go out there and rip that headset off your head and slap the s*it outta you, right here, right now, but I decided the people of Minneapolis, they don’t deserve to see me in person.” JB throws off the headset as Christian says he is having way too much fun- OH NO! JB found Christian but security stops him from tearing into Christian! Captain Charisma runs off, Luchasaurus CLOBBERS the security! CHOKE SLAM onto a trunk! AEW producer Pat Buck rushes in, but gets a HEADBUTT for it!

JB tells Luchasaurus to take it easy, and make sure Pat’s okay. JB goes off to hunt down Christian, will he finally get his hands on the sleazy legend?

 

Miro speaks.

“Malakai. You’ve put me through changes, dragged me into the dark, but then I saw Hell was empty. Because all the devils are here.” Julia Hart walks over?! She tells Miro, “Embrace the gift. Give into it like I did.” Miro removes Julia’s hand from his face, and says there is only one woman who can touch The Redeemer, and Julia is not her. Tell the Pagans that he accepts their gift, and that he will own it so that he may use it to destroy them. “My warpath to my God is clear now. And it leads directly through The House of Black. These are the words of the Redeemer!” Will Miro join Sting and Darby in their fight against Malakai and his minions? Or is he going to destroy them on his own?

 

Backstage interview with “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs.

Mark Henry asks Hobbs if it is safe to assume, that after what happened last week, that he is done with Ricky Starks? Hobbs chuckles, but before he can answer, QT Marshall & The Factory walk over. QT tells Mark that this isn’t Will Hobbs, it’s POWERHOUSE Hobbs. And is he done with Starks? Hobbs left some crumbs, but tonight, Aaron Solo and The Factory sprinkles those crumbs around like parmesan cheese on mama’s spaghetti. And Hobbs doesn’t need to worry about a guy like Starks. Look at him! QT sees a world title in Hobbs’ future. The Factory can handle Starks, “because nobody says no to The Factory.”

Hobbs tells QT, “Don’t let your problem become mine.” Hobbs then leaves and Mark looks to QT. Will The Factory take Hobbs’ warning seriously? Will Starks make an absolute fool out of QT when he takes on Solo tonight?

 

Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh are here!

They go to the ring, all fired up and dressed to the nines. Sonjay gets a mic to say he’s on a high! Did the fans see Battle of the Belts last Saturday? They did to Wardlow the unthinkable. “Nobody has done to Wardlow what we did last Saturday night. Satnam Singh, One in a Billion, 7’4″, he choke slammed Wardlow right through a table! Wardlow was like 20 feet high up in the air!” Satnam rocks! But Wardlow, you may think that they’re done with you, but they’re not done by a long shot! Lethal gets the mic to say that last Saturday, they sent a message. The message is A) Defend the TNT Championship against Lethal one more time, or B) they come find him and just take the title!

Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” and wouldn’t you know? Here comes Wardlow! Wardlow says Lethal wants another shot? Then he’s got it! But for tonight, eh whoops all three of their asses! And wait! Following behind are the TOP GUYS! F T R!! Fans are fired up for Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, draped in gold from ROH, NJPW and AAA! This unofficial Pinnacle reunion storms its way to the ring, so Lethal and his boys bail out! Sonjay looks for something under the ring, but there’s nothing good. Cash dares someone to get in the ring, but Lethal’s group flanks them. Lethal rushes in, but Wardlow blocks hi and ROCKS him, into the BIG RIG!

Lethal bails back out and Sonjay checks on him. Lethal’s crew retreats for now, will Wardlow and FTR stay Top Guys in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone is with Daniel Garcia, Angelo Parker, Matt Menard and Anna “Jay AS” but Parker has him shush. Menard says he can feel it! The world can feel it! Daddy Magic’s lucky red jacket is here, and history will be made tonight! Moxley, it’s been a hell of a run, but it comes to an end TONIGHT! Because tonight is the Jericho Championship Appreciation Party! Did you see the spread?! There’s hors d’oeuvres, amuse-bouche, even a fondue fountain! And Schiavone, you are NOT invited! But best yet, they’ve got A Little Bit o’ the Bubbly! It’s time for the AEW Galaxy to APPRECIATE US!

And while talking about appreciation, you know who should appreciate Garcia? Bryan Danielson. Bryan got another paid vacation with his family and that garden. Garcia put Bryan to sleep and owns him now. He is the Dragonslayer! Anna then shouts at a random stage hand and says if they don’t believe Garcia is the Dragonslayer, she’s gonna choke them out!! And then she does!! Will the JAS be celebrating with Le Champion after tonight’s main event?

 

Ricky Starks VS Aaron Solo w/ The Factory!

The Absolute may be without his FTW Championship and without Team Taz, but he is not about to pay for protection or join up with QT Marshall’s mockery of a mafia. Will Starks prove to his other former tag partner that he’s still a dangerous man? Or will Solo show him the power of The Factory?

Solo rushes Starks the second he’s in the ring but Starks dodges! The bell rings and Starks fires off hands with Solo! Fans fire up but Solo ROCKS Starks. Solo whips Starks to a corner but Starks comes back to CLOBBER Solo! Starks then dodges Solo to back drop him, and strike his pose! Fans fire up, and Starks whips Solo. Solo reverses, Cole Karter trips Starks up, and Solo CLOBBERS Starks! But the ref saw that and EJECTS Karter! So much for his two dimes in this match. Solo is mad and he storms up on Starks but Starks CHOPS him! Solo ROCKS Starks, fires off hands in the corner, then stomps a mudhole in.

The ref counts, Solo lets off at 4, and he talks trash on Starks while fans rally behind Starks. Solo stands Starks up, throws hands and then SLAPS Starks! Solo grins but Starks scowls. Solo and Starks clinch, Starks shoves Solo away and the hands start flying! Starks ROCKS Solo again and again then whips, but Solo reverses. Starks JAWBREAKERS, then dodges Solo to TORNADO DDT! Fans fire up and Starks runs to BOOT Solo! Starks reels Solo in, strikes his pose, and underhooks to lift, but Solo RANAS free! Solo kicks but Starks blocks and side steps, then ducks the Screw High Kick to SPEAR Solo on the return!! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

That was an absolutely exciting finish to the match! QT sends the Freak Beast to the ring, with a chair! Starks sees him coming, dodges that chair shot, and hits a SPINEBUSTER! Starks calls out Hobs with that one! And then he underhooks Comoroto, only for Solo to CLOBBER Starks from behind! Comoroto gets the chair back, but Starks sends Solo into Comoroto! Starks bails, but he sees QT and Ogogo storming down the ramp! Starks goes up and over the railing, QT tumbles as he tries to follow, and Starks gets away! Hobbs is in the back, and he rips the TV off the mount and slams it down! Powerhouse is pissed that Starks survives, will he have to handle Starks himself?

 

Backstage interview with Gunn Club.

Billy is telling his boys to toughen up, but Lexi Nair asks them about how they’re feeling after the Dumpster Match loss. Funny she should bring that up, because they were just going over that. Billy was trying to figure out how, in one night, these two could RUIN the only match Billy made famous! This is what makes Billy miss The Acclaimed. But wait, Stokely Hathaway walks in? He tells “Grandpa Ass” that it’s time to go to bed, it’s after 8 PM! They’ve got some Ensure in catering, maybe Billy can go get himself a bottle. As for the Gunn boys, they can start taking their careers a little more seriously.

Billy grabs the card away from Stokely. “The jokes are old and funny, but you’re about to have a really bad day.” Stokely says alright, that’s fine. Stokely leaves, and Billy says to make it up to Austin & Colten, they have a match for Rampage. But then Danhausen walks in! He and “the big bearded fellow” will see the Ass Boys this Friday. Don’t touch them! Get away. Who is Danhausen talking about for his tag team partner? Trent?

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Speaking of Trent, Schiavone is with Trent, Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy because they had something they wanted to show everyone. Cassidy high-fives Trent and Chuck, is this what he was talking about? But then the Trustbusters, Ari Daivari, Slim J & Parker Bourdeaux, walk over. Ari has Slim J get the mic to hold it for him. Ari says he’s been trying to get a hold of Cassidy all week! But Cassidy hasn’t answered any of Ari’s texts, calls or emails! Now that the trust has kicked in, Ari is investing in the best talent in AEW. He wants to bring Cassidy to superstardom, and all he’s gotta do is ditch the morons right here!

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Cassidy doesn’t know what Ari’s talking about, but whatever his question is, the answer is no. Trent & Chuck back him up. Is that it? The final answer is no? Alright, that’s fine. They’ll learn first hand what happens to people who say know to Daivari Dinero! Will the Trustbusters beat the Best Friends right out of the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament? Or will it be more like the other way around?

Backstage interview with Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm.

Schiavone says it was a big week for #ThunderStorm last week, from that tag team defeat to the successful AEW Women’s World Championship defense at Battle of the Belts III. But a big announcement here: Kris Statlander is injured and cannot compete, making Toni Storm the #1 contender once again. Rosa says in this sport, this happens all the time, and they have to rise to the occasion. This isn’t what Rosa wanted but it is what it is. Storm agrees, she didn’t see it going down like this, either. But next week, Storm will be in action and plans to keep the momentum going. And Storm’s main goal is to be AEW Women’s World Champion.

Rosa says she wishes Storm luck in her match, but they’ll talk about a possible title match after that. Will #ThunderStorm be torn apart by the gold?

Interim AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Chris Jericho!

As far as The Maniac is concerned, there is nothing “interim” about what he’s been doing! He says he IS the AEW World Champion, no matter when or where CM Punk returns in the future. Likewise, Jericho vows to become the new AEW World Champion here tonight, because he’s bringing out the Lionheart! He even uses the classic theme and some NJPW highlights! Will this be more than a nostalgia trip for everyone tonight? Or will Moxley refuse to lose the belt he’s fought so hard to get back?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if a Wild Thing can tame a Lionheart!

Fans are fired up already with the bell, Jericho flips Moxley off! Moxley just flips Jericho off in return! They circle, tie up, and Jericho arm-drags! Moxley is mad already as Jericho grins. The two reset, slowly circle, and they tie up again. Jericho arm-drags again and now Moxley is getting frustrated. Jericho soaks up the cheers and jeers and circles with Moxley again. They knuckle lock, go for a test of strength, and fans duel. Jericho powers Moxley back, headlocks, but Moxley pries free to headlock and hits the takeover. Jericho headscissors, Moxley kips free and fans cheer the new standoff.

Jericho and Moxley tie up again, Moxley shoots in, around and headlocks. Jericho powers out, Moxley rams shoulders, and neither man falls. Jericho shouts at Moxley, then runs, to ram Moxley! Moxley just SLAPS Jericho, so Jericho SLAPS back! Moxley kicks low and underhooks but Jericho trips Moxley up! Jericho has the legs, but Moxley resists the turnover and spins to throw Jericho away! Both men get up, Jericho wrenches and hammerlocks to then drag Moxley down for a Mexican Jave armbar! Jericho throws elbows into Moxley’s neck, fans rally up with “SKOL! SKOL! SKOL!” and Jericho shifts from that hold to a leglock clutch!

Moxley endures as Jericho keeps him hovering off the mat! Moxley fights and squeaks out, to CHOP! And CHOP! Jericho CHPOS, Moxley CHOPS, repeat! Moxley eggs Jericho on then forearms to a snapmare and KICK! Moxley flips Jericho off again, then dares him to getup. Jericho stands, kicks and snapmares to KICK in the back, and neck wrench! Jericho pulls on Moxley’s earring! AND RIPS IT OUT!! Fans can’t believe how vicious Jericho is! Jericho drops the earring while Moxley gets to the apron. TRIANGLE JUMP DROPKICK! Moxley is hit and tumbles to the floor! Jericho soaks up the cheers and jeers while AEW goes picture in picture.

Jericho shows off the earring again, Moxley writhes on the outside, and the ref reprimands about the earring. Jericho flips everyone off and goes out to put the earring on the timekeeper’s table. Jericho storms up on Moxley, throws elbows into the earlobe, and it is bleeding! Moxley staggers away, Jericho follows after and has him sit in the corner. Jericho rains down fists on that ear, then he RAMS Moxley into the railing! Jericho then soaks up the heat before going back to Moxley. Jericho drags Moxley up, puts him back in the ring, and Moxley staggers away while clutching his ear. Jericho stomps away on Moxley in the corner, focusing on the ear!

The ref reprimands, counts, and Jericho backs off at 4. Jericho drags Moxley back into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Fans rally while Moxley endures, and Jericho lets Moxley go. Jericho taunts the fans and they cheer and jeer. Moxley gets up to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Moxley runs, but into a DROPKICK! Jericho has his cocky cover, ONE! Jericho grins and paces around, then brings Moxley up for a BIG back suplex! Jericho then runs to BOOT Moxley down! Jericho continues to soak up the heat as AEW returns to single picture. Jericho flips fans off, taunts the jeering and booing, but then turns around into a LARIAT from Moxley!

Fans fire up while both men are down, and Moxley, still trying to stop his ear from bleeding, fires off hands on Jericho, Jericho hits back, Moxley fires off forearms and kicks and uppercuts! Moxley runs, but into a spin and underhooks, TIGER BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up and Jericho runs to LARIAT Moxley down! Jericho then LIONSAULTS! He’s still got it! Cover, TWO, and Moxley gets Jericho’s arm for an ARMBAR! Jericho flails, moves around, clasps hands, but Moxley fights the grip by BENDING the fingers! ARMBAR!! Jericho fights around, throws down elbows, again focusing on the ear!

Jericho steps over, INVERTED MOTORCYCLE STRETCH! Moxley endures his arms being bent back, uses that to hook a leg and trip Jericho, for an ANKLE LOCK!! Jericho endures, rolls, kicks Moxley away, but Moxley shoots in and around to a GERMAN SUPLEX! Jericho’s right back up! Jericho gets around, to GERMAN SUPLEX Moxley! Moxley stands up but staggers about, the blood a crimson mask on that left side of his face. Jericho runs in to clothesline in the corner! And again, and again, and again! Jericho hoists Moxley up top to CHOP, then climbs up after him for the SUPER STEINER! Fans fire up as Jericho chases Moxley down! Cover, TWO!!

Jericho doesn’t bother being frustrated with Moxley’s toughness, he just goes outside to YANK Moxley into the post! And SLAM the legs against the steel! The ref reprimands but Jericho SLAMS the legs into the post again! Jericho then ties those legs up, shouts out The Hitman with the HANGING FIGURE FOUR!! The ref counts, Jericho lets go at 4! Moxley crawls and hobbles away but Jericho stalks him. Moxley catches the haymaker into a FUJIWARA, then the CROSSFACE! Jericho endures but Moxley pulls him way back! Jericho fights, but Moxley just keeps pulling back! Jericho pries at the hands, clubs at them, then rolls through to get the legs!

Moxley fights but Jericho works to turn him over! Fans fire up as Jericho keeps trying, WALLS OF JERICHO!! Jericho sits deep on the hold but Moxley endures! Fans are thunderous and dueling, and Moxley is fading! Moxley stays conscious as AEW goes picture in picture!

Moxley pushes up, fades again, but he gets a second wind! Moxley pushes up, crawls on his elbows through the bloodstains he himself has left on this mat, but his body starts giving out again! Jericho keeps sitting on the hold, but Moxley flips him off! Moxley fights forward again, manages to tuck and roll, and he throws haymakers from below! Jericho stomps Moxley in return! And then turns him again, back into the WALLS!! Moxley endures and fans are thunderous! Moxley keeps fighting, this is maybe his third or fourth wind, but he’s still so far from the ropes! AEW returns to single picture as Jericho shouts for Moxley to just quit!

Moxley crawls, and claws, and scratches, and reaches the ROPEBREAK! Jericho lets off, and he again argues with the ref that he won! Bu the didn’t, that was the ropebreak! Jericho stomps away on Moxley in frustration, then lets off as he tries to think what he has to do. Moxley stands, Jericho TRIANGLE JUMPS but Moxley tosses him to the floor! Moxley gets back in the ring, hobbles with his bad back and massive blood loss, and he gets up the corner! SUPER DIVING AX HANDLES! Then a ground ‘n’ pound at the ramp!! Fans fire up as Moxley just fires off! Moxley drags Jericho up, “This is Awesome!” as this returns to the ring.

Moxley climbs the corner again, leaps, into a CODE BREAKER!! Jericho shoots Moxley down, covers him, TWO!!! Even after everything, Moxley is still in this! Jericho stands and Moxley sits up, and Moxley eggs Jericho on! So Jericho BOOTS him down! Jericho rains down fists on Moxley, tells him to stay down, then he rips off a buckle pad! The ref reprimands and tries to fix that one, but Jericho just rips off another one! Again, the ref reprimands and tries to fix the buckle pad, but Jericho calls to someone. Someone tosses Floyd the Baseball Bat in, but WAY over Jericho’s head! Sammy Guevara’s in the crowd and realizes how bad he did.

Jericho chases to get Floyd, then rushes in to CLOBBER Moxley! The ref was too busy with buckle pads to see it! Cover, TWO!?!? Moxley survives the Sammy screw job?!

Moxley staggers into the JUDAS EFFECT!! Jericho crawls to the cover, TWO!?!?! Moxley survives the unstoppable Judas Effect elbow!! No one can believe it and Jericho is furious! Fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but this has to end somehow!

Jericho hurries outside, he grabs the AEW title belt, and brings it into the ring. The ref tries to stop him but Jericho just pushes past and swings on Moxley! Moxley avoids the belt shot to send Jericho into bare steel! Jericho tastes karma, and then the SLEEPER!! Jericho is fading as Moxley squeezes him into the BULLY CHOKE! Moxley rains down elbows and fists, then cranks the hold! But Jericho slips out and rains down elbows of his own! And then, LIONTAMER!!! Moxley endures Jericho’s original submission hold, but Moxley turns it around and drags Jericho down! Moxley rains down forearms to the back of Jericho’s head before the SLEEPER!!

Jericho endures, but he is bleeding from the buckle shot! Moxley traps Jericho’s arm and legs with the body scissors, fans are thunderous as Jericho keeps reaching out, BUT JERICHO TAPS!! Moxley wins!!

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

Lionheart fought his heart out, and did bring out quite a few tricks in his book, but Moxley still holds onto the title! But wait, here comes Sammy and Jake Hager! They CLOBBER Moxley and stomp him down! Fans boo as Jericho’s most faithful lieutenants mug Moxley! But wait, here comes the Blackpool Combat Club, as well as Ortiz and Eddie Kingston! Claudio Castagnoli CLOBBERS Sammy, Ortiz CLOBBERS Jericho, then Claudio hands Sammy off to Yuta so that he and Kingston can go after Hager and Jericho! Fans are thunderous, the bell is ringing, the rest of the JAS rush out! Parker, Menard and Garcia go after the BCC, they have the numbers advantage!

Jericho grabs the AEW world title, Menard sets Moxley up, but wait!! C M PUNK is here!!! The Best in the World storms out to the ring, he CLOBBERS Parker, DECKS Garcia, then dodges Sammy to RAM him into steel steps! Punk dumps Hager out, dodges the belt shot and DECKS Jericho! And again! And then Punk clotheslines Jericho up and out! Fans are electric as Punk storms around, but Moxley grabs the AEW title belt. And even with everything that just happened, it is clear that the question is now: Who is THE AEW World Champion? Punk and Moxley stare down and fans lose their minds! Moxley flips Punk off, then bumps him on the way out!

Will Moxley prove HE is the Best in the World? Or will Punk, now 100%, go all out to prove that he is the UNDISPUTED AEW World Champion?


My Thoughts:

This was another awesome event for AEW, though they didn’t do much in the way to put a theme on this. “Quake by the Lake” was a clever name but they didn’t have props to fit the theme, like camping tents or a campfire. But anyway, the Coffin match was a great opener, though I should’ve known the House of Black would get involved. Great to see Buddy is back, and great use of the lights going out to sneak Sting into the coffin. Sting VS Malakai is coming, but I wonder if they’re going to have Miro join Sting and Darby in a brutal Six Man Tag of some kind after that promo he had. Miro says as much that he’s not joining the House of Black, so that’d be a logical move to me.

I really like the bracket we’re getting for the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament. Really good interaction between Best Friends and Trustbusters to set up matches for Rampage and to give some heat to their match in the opening round. I would think Best Friends win in the tournament, as I see Parker Boudreaux beating Sonny Kiss, and Ari Daivari possibly cheating to beat Cassidy. And great to see that NJPW is sending the United Empire’s Ospreay & Aussie Open, though I don’t see them getting through Death Triangle. After that awesome Tornado Tag where LFI wins, I think they get through the Bucks and their mystery third man.

Speaking of which, great promo from Bucks, Hangman and Dark Order. This all fits within Hangman’s larger story perfectly. He can’t just go back to the guys who left him out in the cold, but he is at least back out of the tournament entirely to let whatever three of the Dark Order try to win. I have a feeling the Bucks will have no choice but to use Cutler, and then Cutler takes the lose to LFI. LFI and Death Triangle then meet in the semifinals for an awesome 3v3 version of what we got tonight. And who knows who they face in the finals, but it’ll be an awesome match at All Out. Personally, would love if it comes down to Best Friends VS Death Triangle, I still want that feud to start again.

Great squash match win for Luchasaurus, and great brawl backstage. Christian of course avoids the fight, and Luchasaurus might get (kayfabe) fined and/or suspended for headbutting Pat Buck. What is it about Pat Buck that he gets beat up by talent? Great little bit from Lethal’s group and then Wardlow and FTR. Wardlow VS Lethal 2 is going to be great, not sure if there will be a Six Man Tag as the go-home to it, because it’s so obvious Sonjay would take the loss on that one. At some point, some team from somewhere has to beat FTR for one of those three titles they hold, and I feel like it’ll be a team from AAA to get those AAA belts since FTR has had those the longest.

Good little promo from Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm getting to the tension Britt Baker was bringing up. That title match could definitely be part of All Out, but I wonder if Britt tries to take the #1 contender spot in the last few weeks before then. Good interaction from Hobbs and The Factory, but QT is making it a little too obvious they’re just copying Tony D’Angelo from NXT. Great match from Starks and Solo, and Starks makes The Factory all look like dorks. Hobbs is mad, but we know Hobbs and Starks are going to have it out between now and All Out. Good stuff from Gunn Club and Danhausen, #Beardhausen is going to be a really fun team for Rampage.

Really good match from the TBS Championship, but I will say like I did for Rampage last week, Madison Rayne doesn’t actually seem that exciting or skilled of a wrestler. She’s somehow become a multiple time champion, but nothing about what we got out of her and Jade really thrilled me. And even then, we all knew Jade was winning. But a great little ambush from Athena, I really hope Athena gets the match for All Out, and I also hope Athena gets the title. Jade’s already set an incredible bar for a singles champion in AEW, and even if she loses at All Out, Jade can easily pivot to the world title to finish out 2022.

Great group promo from the JAS to hype up the main event as well as their own stuff, and I love that we’re getting 2 outta 3 falls for Garcia VS Bryan. Awesome main event for the title, practically PPV worthy, and of course there was blood. But WOW, ripping out the earring. A little disappointing but of course Jericho cheats with help from the JAS, but in the end, Moxley still wins. Great brawl and great return from CM Punk, was not expecting him so soon. But that means they’re going to set up Punk VS Moxley for the title at All Out because duh, it’s in Chicago again. No offense to Chicago, but one day, All Out should be somewhere else. But hey, they’re getting their hometown hero there, no idea if he wins to be Undisputed AEW World Champion or not.

My Score: 9.1/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/9/22)

Best Friends get Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Whatever.

Before entering the AEW Trios Championship Tournament, Best Friends are in action, in separate matches! Will tonight’s Dark be Freshly Squeezed?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 8 Man Tag: Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Isaiah Broner, Brayden Lee, James Alexander & Sam Moore; Private Party, Butcher & Blade win.
  • Anna “Jay A.S.” w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Megan Meyers; Anna wins.
  • Best Friends w/ Danhausen VS Rohit Raju & Ren Jones; Best Friends win.
  • Evil Uno & Preston Vance VS Peter Avalon & JD Drake; Uno & Vance win.
  • Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Heather Reckless & Joseline Navarro; Shafir & Nyla win.
  • Kris Statlander VS Sierra; Statlander wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss, Zack Clayton & Xavier Walker; The Trustbusters win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Ruby Soho, Athena & Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb, Leva Bates & Emi Sakura; Soho, Athena & Shida win.
  • Orange Cassidy VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Cassidy wins.

QUICK NOTES

So it seems Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux & Slim J are a trio now under The Trustbusters name. Good to see Sonny Kiss back in action but Kiss, Clayton & Walker aren’t winning that one. And I’m still wondering if The Wingmen are really a thing with JD Drake also spending time with Anthony Henry as the Workhorsemen. For that matter, why wasn’t it Best Friends VS The Wingmen in a 3v3? Or are they going to use that as an easy win in the opening round of the AEW Trios Championship Tournament?
