But Lance Archer attacks! He CLOBBERS Griff and then drags him up to whip and crossbody! BPJ climbs up and leaps in, but into a POWERSLAM! Jake the Snake counts them off, two down and two to go. “Feed the monster.” Chamberlain gets in but gets caught to a dragon sleeper, Archer drags Maluta into things, CHOKE SLAM INVERTED DDT!! “Oh that was sick!” The Snake loves what the Murderhawk Monster does and then speaks to Eddie Kingston. He’s made some serious mistakes, and the biggest is crossing their path. Eddie may have some heavy hitters with him now, but The Snake wants to ask them how to spell, “boy.” Little b, baby o, and “chicken something” y. That’s what they are. They will pay the price.
No more games, they’re opening it all up. Jake might even DDT someone just so they’ll learn. And then the ultimate price comes at the hands of this man. Archer tells Kingston to rage against the dying of the light. You saw what he did to these four, just imagine what he’ll do to the “family.” Kingston has a gift of gab, and has told everyone that he never lost the battle royal, or that he never tapped out. Kingston, shut up and fight! Archer hopes Kingston wins the title so that Archer can take it from his bruised and bloody body. But it doesn’t matter to Archer, really. Because in AEW, Archer is the horror that you can’t help but watch peeking through your fingers. Archer vows to rage in every single fight, but he will never go quietly into that good night. Archer was very poetic tonight, but what he will do will be understood universally. Moxley, Kingston, or anyone else that is even remotely near the ring, #EverybodyDies.

He loses track with all the personals and “missed connections” floating around. But please, join him on the couch. She is very pretty. Avalon is very pretty. But his “delicious peach” is beautiful, too. Will she have some Bubbly? It came free with the “child’s doll.” He means action figure but sure. Avalon has some questions to ask her, so please, sit. He sits very close. Does she like wrestling? Professionally, of course. Mud? Jell-O? Squared circle? Oh, sorry. How many books has she read this week? No, that’s inappropriate.

The Spanish God sends a message to the Broken Brilliance, but he also has to worry about Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Will Sammy render MJF obsolete before he and Hardy try to DELETE the other?
Another good episode but also very long. All the matches were good, and we got good progress in stories. TH2 tries to take out The Addiction but that got turned around on them, so that match will be coming soon. I am also very curious as to why Kaz was watching Private Party’s match if he’s also involved in the story with TH2. I don’t really feel like they’re pacing the Team Taz Wants Will Hobbs story right. There needs to be less attempts to attack Hobbs if they actually want Hobbs on their team. I know beating someone down until they give in worked in WWE with Hurt Business, but it shouldn’t be how Team Taz does things.
Archer quoting Dylan Thomas’ poem was an interesting detail for his segment as he destroys two tag teams. He focuses so much of his warning on Kingston and “the family,” though, I think that feud is happening regardless of what happens at Full Gear. Dustin and QT get after Butcher and Blade, and that’s great, so maybe we get that next time. Peter Avalon debuting his new gimmick of “Pretty Peter Avalon” was ridiculous but in a good way. He lost to Brandon Cutler, still has NO win with over 25 losses on his record, but he’s got this hilarious overconfidence as this not at all suave ladies’ man. I don’t know where it will go from here but it’s definitely entertaining already.
The Dark Order had a great night again as all parts win, and we see another great combo move involving John Silver and Preston Vance, now with Cabana in where Alex Reynolds would’ve been if not for that legit knockout leg drop from the Fatal 4 Way a couple weeks ago. But Cabana standing in makes for great story as he still doesn’t quite get what’s going on with them. Silver could easily be a breakout star given how hammy he gets every time he’s on screen. Johnson, too, as he brought out some truly new stuff against Sammy, even in losing.
My Score: 8.2/10

Fenix drags himself up but Hobbs brings him into the ring. Fenix flops over and Hobbs toys with him.

Adam Cole speaks.
“March 29th will go down as the most important day in my entire life. Not only will March 29th be the debut of AEW All Access, but even more importantly to me, after nine months, I make my return to AEW. And I know that my opponent is going to give me the fight of my life. And that’s good, because I am looking for a fighter. I’m looking for a technician. I’m looking for someone to push me and remind me who the hell I am. So on March 29th, I show the world how damn good Adam Cole Baybay is, and nobody is gonna stop me.”
Stu Grayson speaks.
“Jon Moxley, up until our match tonight on Dynamite, everybody was asking me the same thing. ‘Stu, are you back? Are you back with AEW?’ And I just didn’t know what to answer. I just didn’t. Until now. Now that I am in the hospital because you and BCC gave a concussion to my brother, Evil Uno. So now I’m thinking, Mox, now I’m thinking, ‘Yeah, now I am back.’ You wanted Stu Grayson, you got him! Next week, I want you, Mox. I want you in a one on one match. And I swear to god, I will break you.” The BCC are #ForgedByCombat, but will the Maniac be ready for someone born and bred for combat?

Winner: Taya Valkyrie, by pinfall
Speaking of Jade, she, Leila Grey and Mark Sterling are on the stage. Sterling is taking notes, maybe drafting up a lawsuit. Will Jade have no choice but to take on one crazy Canadian?
Stokely Hathaway is in training.
Matt Hardy tells Stokely that he, Isiah Kassidy & Ethan Page are gonna get him ready for Hook. Hook’s a wrestling machine, a killing machine. He could break Stokely’s arms, legs, back, and neck. Hook could snuff out your life! Does Stokely want that? No! Then they’re gonna get him ready. Just trust them. The montage shows Stokely is off to a rough start, and a rough middle. And his technique to escape a half nelson is to tickle Isiah. But he seems to take scoop slams well. Hardy thinks they need about four or five more, to really toughen Stokely up. Hook is also a suplex machine. Wait, why’re they doing scoops then!?
Stokely runs up the bleachers, and he gets a cookie for his reward! That’s a good-ass cookie. But will any of this help Stokely against the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?
Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker VS The Bollywood Boyz!
Don’t touch that dial and stay on ’em! It’s a battle of Canadians as the duo formerly known as 2Point0 take on some old frenemies from back in the day. Will Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange prove they’re still great sports… enner-tay-ners? Or will there be lights, camera and Bollywood action in Winnipeg?

Menard runs in but into an UPPERCUT! Parker runs in but into a LARIAT! Harv UPPERCUTS again, tags Gurv, and the brothers set Parker up for a FLYING UPPERCUT SPINEBUSTER!

AEW shares footage from earlier this week.
Don Callis has a camera crew and a taiko drummer to greet Konosuke Takeshita. Konosuke asks what’s going on while he’s given a bouquet of flowers. Callis says, “Look at the pageantry!” Konosuke says that was pretty cool. Callis says this is what Konosuke gets in Winnipeg and everywhere else, when he’s associated with Don Calls. They shake, and then Callis brings Konosuke in for a hug. This is great, right? Welcome to Winnipeg! Fans applaud, and Konosuke is admittedly flattered. But will all this special treatment convince the Future of Wrestling to join Callis’ stable?
BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!
It is a crossover dream match as Kenny Omega takes on AAA’s El Hijo del Vikingo! The current AAA Mega Champion is an incredible high-flyer and is certainly leading the way of a new generation in lucha libre. But will he make an impression when he takes on the Best Bout Machine?
Plus, on top of Moxley VS Grayson and the No Disqualification match of Hook VS Stokely, Skye Blue is coming after The Outcasts! She takes on Toni Storm 1v1, but will Saraya & Ruby Soho make sure the “entitled rookie” doesn’t make it out of Dynamite in one piece?
The Gunns speak.
Colten Gunn welcomes us to “crappy Winnipeg, but guess what? You get to see The Gunns check into our suite because we are the champs, of course.” Austin is all fired up, but then he tells Top Flight to carry their things. Oh, oops, sorry! They aren’t valets! This is the second best brother tag team in AEW. Colten says Austin’s right! Darius & Dante say okay, that’s funny. Fans of the Young Bucks, right? What? N-No, that’s not what they meant. Oh, then the Lucha Brothers? Uh, no, not them, either. So the Hardy Boyz? NO! The number one brother team is THEM! The Gunns! Oh, really? That’s funny.
Just like them leaving their bags here with Top Flight, but not the belts. Because that’s because they know if the Gunns ever took on Top Flight, Top Flight would “valet” those belts, too. Oh, yeah? Top Flight thinks they’d win? Then how about this? Next week on Dynamite, they put the AEW World Tag Team Championships on the line! Then you can try to “valet” them. Top B*TCHES! The Gunns head out, but uh, they still left their bags. Dante & Darius take those away, but will they soon take away the gold?
BREAKING NEWS for Rampage next week!
Rampage will be on a different night next week, so mark your calendars for March 25th, 10 PM Eastern!
Excalibur hypes up the main event.
“Three teams in the main event, intent on leaving Winnipeg the AEW World Trios Champions. It was an exciting, brutal match, but it was a match that saw the House of Black retain their titles. In the midst of the melee that occurred after the bell, a war continued to rage between the Jericho Appreciation Society and the House of Black. And as a result, our main event, Daniel Garcia goes one on one with Brody King.” Mark Henry adds it’s time for the main event! But will the Dragonslayer be able to bring down the House of Black’s tattooed titan?
Daniel Garcia w/ Chris Jericho VS Brody King w/ Julia Hart!
The bell rings and then Garcia bails out. Fans boo but Garcia and Jericho soak up the heat. They hug, and Jericho shows off his custom Winnipeg Jets jersey, but then Brody storms out after Garcia. Garcia hurries away, slides into the ring, and Brody gets in the ring. Garcia just bails right back out! Fans boo and Brody paces around, but Jericho applauds the strategy. Brody waits on Garcia, but then storms out after him again. Garcia keeps up the cat ‘n’ mouse game, slides back into the ring, and Brody slides in. Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Garcia fires off fast hands but Brody TOSSES Garcia into a corner! And then SPLASHES!
Brody whips corner to corner, runs in but Garcia dodges. Garcia fires off hands, but Brody DECKS him! Fans rally up, Brody drags Garcia up and CHOPS! Fans rally while Garcia bails out again. Jericho checks Garcia, that chop already made his chest red. Garcia hurries away, but then Julia is there! She stares Garcia down, but Garcia tries to put on the charm with a little dance. Brody storms up behind Garcia, turns him around and CHOPS him again! Garcia falls at Julia’s feet and she smiles. Brody drags Garcia up to RAM him into barriers! Fans rally up, Brody stands Garcia up and CHOPS him again!
Garcia staggers away, face wincing with pain, but Brody throws him into more barriers! Brody confiscates the chair from security, makes Garcia take a seat, and Winnipeg hoots and barks with Brody. Brody runs to CROSSBODY Garcia into the barriers! Fans lose their minds and the ref checks Garcia. Somehow, Garcia is still in this, and Brody drags him up to CHOP again! Garcia staggers away and Brody keeps after him, to RAM him into the steel steps! Fans rally, Brody runs back in, but Garcia drop toeholds Brody into the steps! Brody bounces off the steel and Garcia manages to put his dukes up, as Rampage goes picture in picture.
The ref checks Brody, and he’s somehow okay to continue. Garcia crawls into the ring to let the count handle this. Jericho coaches Garcia while Julia checks Brody. Brody shakes out the cobwebs, Garcia wants the count to go faster, but Brody is in before 10. Garcia stomps away on Brody at the ropes and he fires up now! Garcia drags Brody up, fires off forearms, then digs his knee in. The ref counts, Garcia lets off at 4, then stands on Brody to hyper stomp away! Garcia hops off as the ref counts again, and Garcia high-fives Jericho. Garcia goes back to Brody, but Brody CHOPS! And CHOPS! But Garcia BOOTS him down!
Garcia digs his boot in again, lets off as the ref counts, and Garcia does his dance. Garcia runs side to side to BOOT WASH Brody! Garcia says that’s it! He’s beat Brody! But Garcia still has to drag Brody out, only for Brody to kick at him from below! Garcia holds onto a foot until Brody BOOTS him in the face! Garcia staggers to ropes, Brody runs in, but into a drop toehold! Brody hits ropes, and Garcia CHOKES him! Garcia even claws Brody’s face! The ref reprimands, Garcia lets off, and he steps on Brody’s back. And then steps on him again! Brody just gets annoyed as Garcia keeps stepping on him.

Garcia throws haymakers, but those only give Brody power! Rampage returns to single picture, Garcia keeps throwing hands, but Brody roars! Garcia runs, into the BLACK HOLE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Garcia survives but Brody drags him up! PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO?! Garcia survives and fans fire up, but Brody snarls. Brody puts Garcia in a corner, CHOPS, and Garcia seems ready to cry.

The ref argues with Garcia, and Jericho CLOBBERS Brody with Floyd the Baseball Bat! Garcia then clamps on a RINGS OF SATURN!! Brody’s arm drops once! Then twice! Then three times! GARCIA WINS!!
Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission
JAS should stand for “Jericho Always Steals (the victory!” Because that’s what Jericho just did for Garcia! The ref questions Jericho, but Jericho defends his innocence. Will the House of Black make sure the sports entertainers pay for these transgressions?
A really good Rampage here, even though we had to wait for basketball to finish up before it. Great opener out of the TNT Championship match, and naturally Hobbs retains in his first defense. And of course QT cheats to help Hobbs, even though he shouldn’t even need that. Hobbs’ story is still connected to Wardlow’s, so it won’t be until those two have a rematch that Hobbs loses this title. They’re gonna boost his win-loss record through the “House Rules” house show tour, it seems, as he’s defending this title against Christopher Daniels, despite Daniels needing to also be strong because of his ROH run.
Of course Taya wins her AEW in-ring debut, and of course Jade and Sterling show up to watch in person. I can already predict Sterling is going to draw up a frivolous lawsuit saying Taya can’t use her chicken wing facebuster, Road to Valhalla, because it is exactly the same move as Jade’s chicken wing facebuster, The Jaded. I bet Taya beats Leila in a tune-up that also counts as fighting the lawsuit, and so it’ll come down to who can hit the chicken wing facebuster first to win the TBS Championship. And after 54 wins over her two year career, Jade can lose to someone as well-known and established as Taya without being hurt, and Jade can finally move on to the women’s world title.
Good revisit of Ever-Rise VS Bollywood Boys, and I figured Menard & Parker would win to then also call out The Acclaimed. I bet Caster is working on his diss track for Menard & Parker right now to throw it at them the next time they meet. Decent segment with Callis and Konosuke, and of course Callis pours on the Japanese culture. Konosuke’s choice can still work either way, but fans really like Konosuke so I would think he stays a Face by rejecting the invitation to join up. And while such a story is beneath Omega, I wouldn’t mind if he had a small moment in this story since he was the one who brought Konosuke into AEW to begin with.
Speaking of Omega, great match coming up for him and El Hijo del Vikingo, that is gonna be awesome. Good promo from Gunns and Top Flight, especially with how Top Flight rightfully had three brother teams easily better than Austin & Colten. But Austin & Colten are totally going to cheat to beat Top Flight and retain the titles since their story is with FTR. Great promo from Grayson to call out Moxley, and it sounded very John Wick with that whole, “I’m thinking I’m back!” Moxley VS Grayson is going to be awesome, and will give Hangman a reason to come out and confront Moxley again since there’s still a lot going on there.
The one point of disappointment is that Mark Henry’s role is reduced even further. He didn’t get to welcome us back from break, and his line was trimmed down to just the latter half. But good vignette with narration from Excalibur to make up for it. And great main event, where I should’ve known Jericho would cheat to help Garcia win. Oddly enough, The House of Black will end up the Faces in this story since the JAS will be doing all the Heel tactics, and they could have quite the feud going towards Double or Nothing.
My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY
It’s time for MJF’s “Re-Bar Mitzvah!”
Justin Roberts begins by saying, “In the tradition of his forefathers, but better, please welcome the Bar Mitzvah Man, the AEW World Champion, MJF.” Fans boo as the Devil of AEW’s music hits and four young ladies accompany him out to the ring. MJF has them each kiss him on the cheek, but then gets a big kiss on the lips from the fourth one. MJF then gets in the ring, the ladies are dismissed and the blue and white streamers fly. MJF gets the music and has them cut his music. Fans are torn, many boo but many also still cheer him on. MJF says, “Now I know you Canadians aren’t very bright. I mean, for crying out loud, you folks used to think Bret Hart was actually entertaining.”
All the fans boo that, but MJF says, “No offense but I think we all know Shawn was much better.” But allow him to remind us why we’re here. We’re here to celebrate the most important day in recorded human history: MJF’s birthday. And in his religion, which is the only religion that matters, Judaism–boo all you want but they’re the chosen people, it’s just a fact–but under the eyes of his Lord, when a boy turns into a man, he hits 13 and that is when he is Bar Mitzvah’d. Now, MJF already had a Bar Mitzvah, the theme was “Maximania” and he lost his “V-card,” “It was sick, dude.”
But here’s why they’re having a Re-Mitzvah. When MJF tapped out “your boy,” Bryan Danielson, to become the undisputed best pro-wrestler in the world, to go on to retain the most important title in all of pro-wrestling, The Triple B, MJF is no longer merely a man. Now, he is IRONMAN! And to celebrate, hit the music! The Hava Nagila! Fans clap along and a chair is brought out! They dance around, MJF sits, and the chair is lifted up! But wait! Here comes Jungle Boy! Fans fire up as Jack Perry makes his way out, and the dancing stops. JB sees MJF’s Shazam cake then gets in the ring.
Fans fire up for “Jungle Boy! Jungle Boy!” as he gets the mic. But then Sammy Guevara makes his way out! The Spanish God walks down the ramp while MJF puts on a fuzzy Burberry patterned bucket hat. Sammy looks at the cake, too, but MJF shouts, “Don’t you touch that!” Sammy soaks up the heat from Winnipeg before he gets in the ring. Sammy has his own mic, and he tells “Max, oh, Max.” But wait! DARBY ALLIN makes his way out! Fans fire up even more, we’ve got all four Young Pillars of AEW are in the ring at the same time! MJF gets pissed and shouts to cut the music! But Winnipeg is thunderous for “DARBY! DARBY!”
MJF tells them no no no no no! They are RUINING his Re-Mitzvah! What the hell do they want? They all say, “I want a title match!” Fans fire up for that! MJF laughs and says that was cute and all, but let’s get real. JB says, “Shut up, Max.” The last time they went 1v1 was Double or Nothing 2020, the very first Pandemic Era PPV, no fans in the crowd. JB and MJF went back and forth for almost 20 minutes in that Florida heat. Until eventually, MJF cheated, as always, and then won. Fans boo MJF but MJF just shrugs. After that, their lives went in very different directions. MJF was handed every opportunity in the book. As for JB, he wrestled on Dark.
MJF has never had a match on Dark, huh? The others have. MJF has never been on Elevation, or even on Rampage! He just gets to walk around and do whatever the hell he wants. And it’s crazy to JB because there is an entire locker room, men AND women, who bust their asses every week! And they maybe get to get sixty seconds on Dynamite, maybe. But they all have to sit back there and watch MJF take 20 minutes to do the same “hokey bullsh*t” he’s been doing the past four YEARS! Fans cheer that and JB says this entire place revolves around MJF. And the first step in changing that is taking that world title!
Fans chant “HOKEY BULLSH*T!” But MJF says, “You wanna know the truth? This company does revolve around me, because unlike you, you and you, and all those boys in the back, I’m actually a star!” But now Sammy tells MJF to shut up! “You shut the hell up before I turn this Re-Bar Mitzvah into a re-circumcision!” MJF is stunned hearing that. Sammy says MJF talks too much, and has done that his whole life, his whole career. He literally talked his way into the door here. He kissed ass, lied and cheated to get where he is. But you know what Sammy had to do to get here? He had to grind on the indies for 10 PLUS YEARS!
Sammy had to work at Whataburger, and at Subway, every odd job, you name it, he did it! Fans cheer that! Sammy says that even then, “You look at me, you SOB,” when Sammy finally did get here, he was told he was only supposed to be the Inner Circle’s jobber. He was only supposed to be the bump guy for Jericho. But he overcame every obstacle that “they” put on me and he became a champion, THREE TIMES OVER! See, Max, Sammy isn’t like you. He’s never had “the machine” pushing him, and he never needed it! He had himself. Sammy got Sammy here, and he’ll get Sammy to the world title.
So whether MJF likes it or not, or whether these “dumbass Canadians” like it or not, Sammy Guevara is gonna be a world champion. Because he’s the Best Ever, and MJF knows it! MJF says that was cute, Sammy copying his catchphrase and all. MJF appreciates the fact Sammy took all this time out of his busy schedule getting into brawls in the back with people to do this. But now Darby tells MJF to shut up! His turn! “Hold your applause until after I’m done, please.” Darby says in 2013, he was going to film school and he turned in this movie. His teacher told him he was gonna have to change everything in it. The school does not accept this kind of movie.
Darby looked at her and said, “I’d rather just drop out of school then change a single thing.” So that day, he DID drop out of school. That was a blessing in disguise because it gave him the balls to do something he never thought was possible, and that was become a pro-wrestler. Fans cheer that, and Darby says it was his first day at the Buddy Wayne Academy and he remembers walking in and saying to himself, “You’re gonna make it as Darby Allin, or you’re gonna fail as Darby Allin, but you ain’t gonna change a single thing.” Fans cheer that, too.
Darby says fast forward all these years later, he’s in Tony Khan’s office, and he tells Tony, “Maybe I am the worst businessman in this whole entire place, because there will never be a bidding war for Darby Allin. Because AEW gives me something no amount of money can afford me, and that is the opportunity to just let me be me. The biggest problem, listen to this. The biggest problem I have with this whole entire company is you got grown ass wrestlers in the back going on Twitter, ‘I’m not happy! I’m upset! I wanna out of my contract if I don’t get what I want~!’ And that includes YOU, our world champion, with his own bidding war of 2024 crap!
“See Max, AEW means a whole lot more to me than it ever did you. That is exactly why I should be world champion. And you know what I’m gonna do if you don’t give me a championship match, right? You know what I’m gonna do. I’m just gonna go complain about it on Twitter. No, seriously, I’m gonna beat your face in with my skateboard, and I’m gonna give you a headlock takeover!” MJF is really mad now! He has had enough of all of this! Do they understand him! MJF takes off the sunglasses, and we see the black bags under his eyes and red spot in one! Darby says MJF looks like sh*t! Put the glasses back on.
MJF says fine, we’ve got “Jungle Jabroni, Dangerous Darb the Incel Skateboarding Mime, and Sammy ‘in about seven months, I’m gonna propose to a new girl’ Guevara!” Even JB thought that was a good one. Sammy tells MJF that’s funny, since uh, didn’t his fiancé leave him? Oh, so we’re making burns at MJF’s Re-Mitzvah? Y’all got MJF mashookenah up in this B! Okay! Hey, hey, Jungle had Christian. Sammy has Jericho. Darby has Sting. But y’know who MJF has? NOBODY! Because guess what? He didn’t need to be enrolled into AEW Daddy Daycare! MJF has been ready since day ONE!
And that is precisely why, as sick as it makes him now, these four ARE the Pillars of AEW! MJF is not afraid to admit that they are the past, present and future of pro-wrestling. However, MJF is the only pillar who can keep this place up, and that’s a fact. He has beaten every single one of them in singles competition, and they think they deserve a shot at the world title? No. They don’t even deserve to sniff the Triple B. So they are gonna leave since none of them were invited, and then MJF is gonna eat his cake, because he deserves it. “Thank you, screw you, bye.” He SLAPS JB! So JB CLOBBERS MJF! But Sammy KNEES JB!
Darby and Sammy fire off on each other! MJF stands up on the apron, but Darby and Sammy knock him off and onto the cake!! MJF, the cake and the table go falling over! That suit is ruined, and so is the party! Fans chant “You Deserve It!” but MJF is furious as he gets up and storms away. Will the other three pillars bring MJF down so that someone else can stand atop AEW?

Sunday, June 25th, AEW and NJPW will converge again in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, for Forbidden Door 2! Tickets on sale March 24th, 10 AM Eastern, be ready to see all the stars of both worlds collide again!
Juice Robinson speaks.
“Everybody wants to know why I laid out Ricky Starks with the Left Hand, and then planted his head into the mat. Instead of, ‘Why, Juice, why? How could you do that to the beloved Ricky Starks?’ It should be, ‘What’re you gonna do about Juice Robinson walking down to the ring, knocking the taste outta your mouth and then planting your surgically repaired neck–Oh yeah, I remember–into the mat?'” Juice knows what Ricky’s gonna do: JACK DIDDLY SQUAT!! The Booster fired the first shot, but will the Absolute have the last laugh?
AEW TBS Championship Canadian Open Challenge: Jade Cargill w/ Leila Grey VS ???
Undefeated at 53-0, the champion feels she’s beaten everyone there is to beat in the United States of America. But now that AEW is in Canada, she wants the best the True North has to offer! Will #ThatBitch stay undefeated? Or will this be the night her streak ends?
So who stepped up? It’s Nicole Matthews, a four-time Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW) Women’s Champion! She’s elite, but is she all elite? The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Canada’s best is good enough!
The bell rings and Jade dares Nicole to take a shot. Nicole isn’t taking that seriously, but then Jade pie faces her! Jade eggs Nicole on so Nicole fires off forearms! Nicole whips, Jade reverses and kicks low! Jade whips, then BOOTS Nicole down! “This is my competition!?” Jade chicken wings to hit Nicole with JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!
Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)
54-0 as easy as that, and now Renee Paquette steps into the ring to interview Jade. She’s still undefeated, she issued an Open Challenge to all of Canada, and she ran through Nicole Matthews. What level of competition is Jade looking for at this point? Isn’t Renee from Canada? Jade corners Renee but Renee says she’s just a reporter! Fans boo but Jade snatches the mic. “Is that it? Is that all you have to offer, Canada?” Fans boo but Jade smiles. Wait. Is that…? TAYA VALKYRIE!? Impact’s Wera Loca is now here in AEW! And Winnipeg fires up to see the Crazy Canadian make her way to the ring.
Taya steps to Jade, the two stare down and talk some trash, and fans are loving this! Leila wants to get in the way but Jade moves her aside. Jade holds up the belt, Taya nods, and Jade leaves. Leila sucker punches, but Taya ROCKS Leila! Taya chicken wings Leila to give her JADED!! Jade is pissed but Mark Sterling rushes out to stop her from going after Taya now. The collision is happening down the line, will Taya finally be the one to make Jade the former TBS Champion?
Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.
Tony Schiavone is with The Absolute to get his response to Juice’s comments and actions. “It’s real easy to attack a guy from behind, isn’t it, Juice? And I heard what you had to say. You’re jealous because I’m getting the so-called attention. Wow. Good. I deserve it. What the hell have you done here? You’re part of the Bullet Club. That was relevant back in 2015. But this is 2023, alright? Maybe you should stand on your own two feet and do something for yourself.” Starks says, “You’d think I would learn by now, dealing with these groups and getting myself entangled in all this mess. But same ol’ Ricky, different day.”
So if Juice has an issue with Starks, then come and bring it. It is an issue if Juice wants to drag Bullet Club into, then go and bring it. Any time, any place. Will the Booster face the wrath of Ricky Starks soon enough?

This person used a crowbar to break the window, then they unlocked the door themselves and snatched the belt. Wait! It was AARON SOLO?! And now they’re all laughing at how they got away with that! QT says Wardlow really shouldn’t be surprised. Last year, MJF stole all of his momentum! OH~! And Solo says with that haircut, Wardlow would make a great Spike TV Champion! HAH! RUTHLESS! AGGRESSION! But in all seriousness, what is next for Wardlow? Whatever is next for Batista, just not as good! HAHAHA! Nothing’s next for Wardlow, because he also left his passport in the car!
What does Hobbs say? “Wardlow, welcome to WILL’S World, b*tch!!” The Book of Hobbs’ next chapter is full of jokes, but will he have the last laugh? But speaking of the TNT title…
BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!
As part of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Slam event, Hobbs has issued an OPEN CHALLENGE! Who will step up to Hobbs to get dunked on? Rampage will begin immediately following NCAA Tournament coverage this Friday, no earlier than 11:30 PM Eastern, keep your eyes open!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall (still AEW International Champion)
New name, same action, and same champion holding it up! Has this finally ended things between Best Friends and Triple J?
AEW hears from tonight’s main eventers.
Malakai Black says, “So this is what it feels like to be popular, to have people fighting over you. And all it took for the world to notice were these.” Chris Jericho says this is the biggest wrestling match in Winnipeg history! JAS VS The Elite VS The House of Black! Also, Jericho and Omega face to face for the first time in two years, “two Winnipeg natives beating the crap out of each other in the city that knows how to fight.” Malakai says, “There is a sickness in this company. We are here to cut it out. Start by wiping off the dirt, the blood, the sweat of people who do not deserve to hold these titles.” The Elite, however, are silent. Will their actions speak for them tonight?
The Acclaimed debut a new music video!
“The Acclaimed, doing everything they can do. Platinum, Anthony and Billy rolling with the fans, too. I just wanna hear the siren, I’ve been waiting all night. Put the double scissors up, it’s Acclaimed 4 Life. No, we never roll down. Once again, we uncrowned. Coming from the Dark days, coming from the underground. You know we self made, trying to find a little bit of heaven in this hellscape, suddenly it felt great. Acclaimed across America, the barrier, we cause hysteria, and give it back to the game. Up early, autographing name, taking pics cuz everybody loves The Acclaimed, hey!
“Critics saying we should get a different motto. But we never slipping, no, we not Mitch McConnell. It’s like we hit the lotto, I know, we moving you. We can’t stop, we got something to prove to you. Never enough, the good guys, the bad influence, the People’s Choice, they never have us losing. We ya voice, and you’re saying we should bring it back home. We three kings been stealing that gold for you.” The Acclaimed know they owe it to the fans, but will they be able to take the AEW World Tag Team Championships back from the Gunns?
The Outcasts are here!
The outsiders, the famous-before-AEW, former-WWE-ers, Saraya, Toni Storm & Ruby Soho, head to the ring, soaking up the heat and flipping off the fans. They get the mics, and Saraya tells Winnipeg to shut up! Ruby says, “Let me tell you all a story. Once upon a time, the grass was greener here at AEW. Until a couple of dogs, well, let’s be real here, a couple of b*tches, came along and pissed all over that grass.” Saraya, what do they do with b*tches that aren’t housebroken? Saraya says, “We show them that AEW is OUR house!” Saraya says the fans should kiss the ground they walk out, because without them, there wouldn’t be a division!
“You can boo all you want, but you are lucky we are here! I AM A MIRACLE! I don’t expect anything less from a bunch of neckbeard, stinky twats!” Fans boo more but Saraya says she’s too mad, Storm has to take it from here. Storm tells all the “fat people” to listen up. Storm became a champion here in AEW- Oh, sorry. When she became interim champion here, not a real champion, she wore it with a smile, and none of them appreciated her. But their current champion, Jamie Hayter, cheated to beat Storm, and the fans LOVED it!! And so Storm realized, “None of you people know what you want. None of you!”
So they’re here to give us what they NEED, and that is change in the AEW Women’s Division. They are the Outcasts, but they ain’t going anywhere! They’re having too much fun going from one entitled rookie to the next. It started with Skye Blue, then Willow Nightingale, and Riho, and Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. And of course, the favorite, the champion, Jamie Hayter. But speak her name and here she comes! Hayter, followed by Britt, rush the ring and take it to the Outcasts! And in matching denim! Britt takes off her belt and she aims at Ruby. But Storm snatches the belt to CHOKE her with it!
Saraya CLOBBERS Hayter, Soho and Storm mug Britt! DESTINATION UNKNOWN! Storm hits Hayter with STORM ZERO! But here comes RIHO! AND Skye, and Willow! Riho has a big stick, too! Riho, Skye and Willow run The Outcasts off! Fans fire up, will the Pillar & the Killer see they have allies after all?
Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker speak.
Daddy Magic says he and Cool Hand Ange saw that great new music video from The Acclaimed, “UN-BELIEVABLE!” Menard will say right now that the video made his nipples hard. The JAS loves rap music! Love it! Parker says it was entertaining! A Tony Award winning video! Great job! Congrats! But that’s where the praise ends. Last week, two times the Acclaimed were given an invitation, and they spit in the JAS’s face! But Parker says it is okay, that’s just The Acclaimed playing hard to get.
Maybe they need a reminder of why they should put some respect on the JAS. So do them a favor, Acclaimed and Ass Man, tune into Rampage and see why the JAS is the epitome of sports… enner-tay-ners! This Friday on Rampage, Menard & Parker take on the Bollywood Boyz! Will Caster & Bowens be watching St. Patrick’s Day Slam?
Rey Fenix speaks.
He and Alex Abrahantes are here, and Alex knows that the Lucha Brothers came from nothing. Fenix sold candies, T-shirts, put up the ring and wrestled for free for a very long time, just to get where he is today. Alex reminds us that the Lucha Brothers have been AEW World Tag Team Champions, AEW World Trios Champions, but this Friday, Fenix looks to become AEW TNT Champion! “Will Hobbs, challenge accepted! ANIMO!” The Book of Hobbs has his next challenger, but will it be his last?
AEW World Trios Championships Triple Threat: The House of Black VS The Elite VS The Jericho Appreciation Society!
Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews shocked many when they dethroned Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks at Revolution. And then Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia & Sammy Guevara claimed they were the new #1 contenders before The Elite got a rematch. The House decided not to waste anyone’s time, and accepted BOTH challenges at once! Will the House still be standing after stacking the odds against themselves? Or will their reign be torn down after only ten days?
The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and no matter what, this historic night will have a historic finish!
Fans are already losing their minds and chanting “This is Awesome!” seeing all this star power. In this kind of Triple Threat, only two teams are legal at one time, so Sammy steps up to start against big bad Brody King. They circle, approach, and Sammy dodges to dropkick! Sammy kips up, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Brody CHOPS him down! Sammy scrambles away to hug Garcia, then tags him in. Red Death steps up and CHOPS, but Brody doesn’t budge! Brody CHOPS Garcia down! Garcia hurries to his corner, but Sammy AND Jericho are gone! Garcia hurries all the way to the other side, but The Elite leave him alone, too!
Garcia looks around confused, Jericho returns and Garcia talks some smack to Brody. Brody BOOTS Garcia down! Jericho tags in and Winnipeg erupts! Jericho and Brody circle, but then Malakai tags in. Fans are going nuts as The Wizard and the Dark Father circle. But then Omega sneaks a tag off Malakai! Fans are even louder somehow as the Winnipeg boys stare down! But then the House BLASTS them both! And their teams! Fans boo but Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Brody TOSSES Sammy over barriers, Buddy does the same to Omega! Malakai KICKS Garcia, then he and Brody mug Jericho! The Elite fight off Buddy while Jericho is sent into railing! Malakai stomps and kicks Garcia and Sammy, Buddy dribbles Matt’s head off steel steps, but Omega goes after Buddy while Brody sends Garcia into barriers! Buddy ROCKS Omega, but he has to fight off the Bucks. Brody stands Sammy up to fire off hands while Malakai fires off on Jericho! Malakai then runs to BOOT Omega! Buddy keeps on Garcia, Brody storms around the way but glares at fans talking trash.
Malakai KICKS Omega, BOOTS Omega, then storms off to find someone else. Brody RAMS Omega into barriers! Buddy ROCKS Nick Jackson, then DUMPS him down. Brody tags in off Omega, stomps Jericho down, and Buddy KNEES Nick! Brody CHOPS Jericho to a corner, fires forearms, then CHOPS again! Malakai elbows Omega in the head! Brody CHOPS again! Malakai TOSSES Omega into barriers! Brody ROCKS Jericho, CHOPS him against ropes, but Jericho fights back! Malakai BOOTS Omega, Brody CHOPS Jericho! Jericho CHOPS Brody, CHOPS again, but Brody CHOPS Jericho down!
Brody roars and soaks up the heat from Winnipeg. Malakai drags Nick up, then KICKS him into barriers! Brody wrenches Jericho’s neck, digs an elbow in, then pulls back on the chinlock. Jericho endures, fights up as fans rally, but Brody throws body shots. Jericho fires forearms but so does Brody! They go back and forth, Dynamite returns to single picture, and Brody tags in Malakai. The House mugs Jericho, then Malakai wrenches an arm to a double wristlock. Jericho fires forearms and then CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Jericho whips Malakai into his corner, runs in, but Malakai avoids the Judas Effect! Jericho ducks the Black Mass!
Malakai swings but into a spin and underhooks, TIGER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Jericho drags Malakai up, tags Sammy, and Sammy tags Garcia. Le Sex Gods double whip Malakai, double shoulder him down, and then they pose! Garcia poses with them and fans cheer. Garcia then kicks Malakai, brings him up, and facelocks. Malakai endures the grind, but Sammy tags in. The JAS mug Malakai, but Malakai drops to KNEEBAR Garcia! Sammy stomps Malakai! Sammy and Garcia double whip Malakai to the one open corner, but Malakai BOOTS Garcia away! Sammy runs in, he blocks a boot, but not the KNEE!
Malakai waistlocks Garcia but Sammy CLUBS Malakai! Malakai waistlocks Sammy but now Garcia CLUBS Malakai! PELE from Sammy! Malakai staggers away and Nick tags in! Nick knuckle locks and CHOPS Sammy, he hurdles Garcia and goes up, up and “LUCHA LIBRE~!” to ARM-DRAG HEADSCISSOR COMBO on Sammy and Garcia! Fans fire up with Nick but Malakai tags off Sammy. Nick runs in, Sammy puts him on the apron, and now Nick has to fight off the House! Nick ROCKS Brody, shoulders into Malakai and SUPERKICKS Buddy! Nick slingshots to FACEBUSTER Malakai and QUEBRADA-
NO, Buddy catches Nick! To LAWN DART into a KNEE from Malakai! Malakai stomps away on Nick, drags him back up and wrenches to tag in Buddy. Buddy goes up to DOUBLE STOMP Malakai’s arm as Nick pulls him in! Nick then leaps for his corner, only for Buddy to catch him again! Buddy RAMS Nick into the House’s corner! But Nick BOOTS back! Nick ROCKS Brody but Buddy waistlocks! Buddy keeps Nick away, but Nick ENZIGURIS! Hot tag to Omega! Fans fire up as Omega goes up the corner and CROSSBODIES Buddy! The JAS rush in, Omega CLOBBERS Garcia then he CLOBBERS Sammy!
Malakai runs in, Omega swings but misses! Malakai fires off strikes but Omega dodges to SNAP DRAGON! Brody runs in, Omega gets around, SNAP DRAGON!

Omega full nelsons but Buddy fights it! Buddy elbows free, runs in, but Omega goes up and over and runs in to RANA! Buddy flounders, Jericho tags in! Fans are thunderous again as we finally get the Winnipeggers! Yes, that’s how you refer to them.
But Malakai runs in! Jericho DECKS him! But Buddy returns! Omega CLOBBERS him! Brody runs in, they both dodge and double clothesline Brody out!

DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for Buddy! Sammy springboards in, into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!! Brody returns, but into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!! But he still DOUBLE LARIATS on the rebound!! ALL NINE MEN ARE DOWN and fans are electric!
Dynamite goes picture in picture as the ref tries to sort out who is what. Fans chant for “A E DUB!” as the teams regroup outside the ring. Julia Hart paces around as she watches Garcia and Sammy writhe. Omega and Jericho stay in the ring, crawl towards each other, and Jericho throws a forearm! Omega nods, and he gives it back! Jericho throws another forearm, so Omega gives it back! They go back and forth on their knees, faster and faster, and then stand up! Jericho gets the edge, but we’re back to the hockey fight!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall (still AEW World Trios Champions)
Winnipeg is upset neither man of theirs won, but here comes Hager! Hager fights the House but he gets mugged! The rest of the JAS hurry to help Hager against the House, but then the brawl of BCC and Dark Order spills onto the stage! Hangman bowls Yuta down the ramp! Claudio and Moxley take out Silver and Reynolds, NEUTRALIZER and PARADIGM SHIFT! But Hangman is after Yuta all the way to ringside! There’s chaos all over the place! Hangman throws Yuta into the ring but Yuta bails out as Hangman slides in. The House and JAS keep brawling, too, but now Hangman dares the BCC to come get him.
Moxley storms into the ring, Claudio right behind him, but THE ELITE STAND WITH HANGMAN! Fans are thunderous but Hangman isn’t even aware of what’s going on! The BCC considers their options, and decide to back off since this is 4v3. Hangman asks what’s up, but then he turns around to see his old friends. Dynamite is going off the air, is The Cowboy going to rejoin The Elite?
An awesome Dynamite here, AEW really did go big for being in Canada, and after Revolution’s builds were a bit lacking, they are really ramping things up going into the Spring and Summer. I will groan real quick about Rampage having to worry about NCAA basketball getting in the way, but at least Rampage is looking great, too. Great new video from Caster of The Acclaimed giving love back to the fans, good response from Menard & Parker, and I like that we’re getting 2Point0 VS Bollywood Boyz to bring things back from WWE 205 Live. Menard & Parker will win, sure, but The Acclaimed definitely need to respond with a diss track.
Great stuff for AEW Women’s Division Civil War, with The Outcasts getting what was coming from essentially Team Homegrown. Hayter, Britt, Riho, Skye and Willow standing tall was good stuff, though I almost thought Riho was gonna hit Hayter with that pipe. But that wouldn’t be very in character for Riho, and she wouldn’t work as a Heel. Chances are, Marina and Nyla join the Outcasts, but I would really hope Shida gets back in this story. She was shocked by the Outcasts behaving this way at the start of things, she needs to tip the scales in one side’s favor for this to come full circle.
I’m a bit disappointed that Jade squashes someone in her TBS Championship match rather than facing a strong opponent. But maybe this is so Taya Valkyrie beats Jade before she gets to 55-0. That’d be big stuff for Taya to start her AEW run, and then Jade can finally move up to the top title. Good promos from Starks and Juice to hype up their coming match, but I hope him egging on the rest of Bullet Club doesn’t come back to bite him. While this is a feud to bide Starks’ time, we don’t need a copy and paste of Starks VS JAS where Starks has to get through like, Ace Austin and Chris Bey who are stateside, to finally get at Juice.
Great stuff out of the International Championship match but sometimes, AEW needs to remember that if they’re to be the better pro-wrestling company than WWE, they need to be better about pro-wrestling tropes. They ban Satnam & Sonjay from ringside last time, but forget to do it this time? I get that it was all to keep us watching them and then “surprise,” Lethal shows up to attack. But it’s not like any of that cheating helped Jarrett win, so I feel like they got things backwards. Jarrett should’ve tried all the cheating last week, and then Lethal takes Cassidy on in a clean match here that he still loses.
I should’ve known QTV was just going to be a TMZ ripoff. It was delivered well, poked fun at WWE because duh, that’s what AEW does anyway, and just as bad as actual TMZ. But of course someone under QT’s orders stole the belt, that was clear when Hobbs had the belt in his promo on Rampage. I do appreciate Aaron Solo is sticking with QT, and nice way to give Harley Cameron a role on TV. But obviously Wardlow will come after Hobbs after he deals with Fenix on Rampage. Wardlow and Hobbs will feud through to Double or Nothing, but it still feels like AEW’s booked itself into a corner with this feud, where both big men are fan favorites, but one push just hurts the other.
Great opening segment with MJF and his “Re-Bar Mitzvah.” MJF’s golden lightning bolts outfit looked awesome, I’m surprised Seth Rollins didn’t come up with something like that first. At the same time, I feel like none of those four ladies walking with him to the ring wanted to do that. But it was great to have the “Four Pillars of AEW” all together, each of them taking turns digging at MJF and MJF digging at them, and they even obeyed the wrestling rule of destroying the cake. I don’t think we’re getting a Fatal 4 Way at Double or Nothing, as epic as that would be. I think we should see MJF essentially run the gauntlet. He said he beat each of them in the past, he has to see if he can do it again.
Great stuff out of BCC VS Hangman & Dark Order, and I love that they blended it into the Trios Championship story and the Hangman VS Moxley story as a whole. Sucks for Stu to lose in his hometown, but the Heels were going to stand tall to put the pressure on Hangman. That Trios Triple Threat main event was chaotic in the good way, and it was just so awesome! As much as Winnipeg wanted a hometown hero win, the House of Black holding onto the belts makes sense as they’ve only just started. They can break off into a feud with just the JAS now that goes to Double or Nothing. And with The Elite backing up Hangman, fans still got to have an awesome closing moment, and I really like where this is going. If the women get Blood & Guts, why not have the men do a big 4v4 or something match for Double or Nothing to follow what is basically tradition now.
My Score: 9/10
