AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Top Flight!
Matt and Nick Jackson only just got these titles at Full Gear, but they’re willing to prove that the best champions are fighting champions! Will “Air Wolf” Darius and “Angel Dorado” Dante Martin take advantage of this golden opportunity? Or will they just be the newest guests of a Superkick Party?
AEW plays a quick video package to explain the origins of Top Flight. Growing up, they watched teams just like the Young Bucks and were inspired to get into wrestling. Now, they do their own thing and carve their own path. It’s great to have a brother for a tag partner, they have an advantage knowing what the other is thinking. Darius got a little tired being in the same spot, so he messaged Matt Jackson with a long shot. Matt replied and blew Darius’ mind! Being so young at just 21 and 19 is a huge advantage for them, and they feel more than ready to take flight. They’d be lying if they pretended they weren’t nervous, but anything is possible.
With that, the Bucks make their entrance, the introductions are made and the belts are raised. The opportunity of a lifetime for one pair of brothers begins to open the night!

The Hybrid2 get away before the Bucks can get at them! Evans and Angelico ranted on Dark about wanting politics and favoritism to stop in AEW, but their bitterness won’t ruin this moment for the young Darius and Dante. Will the Martin brothers get back to these titles some day?
“The Inner Circle slays Vegas, baby!”
In a montage, Chris Jericho, MJF, and the boys have a night on the town! Sammy Guevara wins big in Blackjack again. Wait, how did his cards change?! Ortiz, did you see what happened? MJF says a 6 and 7 isn’t a blackjack. Sammy glares at MJF as the montage continues. MJF gets Santana to blow on the dice for him, and they get 7 in Craps! But no hugging. Handshakes are fine, though. Then they go to a rocker burlesque show. Wardlow and Jake Hager can’t stop glaring at each other. MJF and Jericho get drinks, but while MJF wants Slippery Nipples, Jericho wants Peppermint Schnapps. MJF ups the “ante” to tequila, but Jericho ups it to vodka. MJF goes with rum, Jericho says Canadian cooking sherry.
MJF tells the “barkeep” that he has a thirst that can only be quenched by one thing: Moonshine! Jericho counters with… “100 proof grain alcohol EVERCLEAR!” He can’t be serious. The bartender says that hasn’t been served since the- THEY KNOW! Bottom’s up. MJF and Jericho chug it down, and it burns!! Moving on, with literal help from the boys, MJF and Jericho realize that was a bad idea. But Santana and Ortiz are ready to move this to the next level. KONNAN is here! He’s always got the best stuff, and he knows exactly what they need. BOOM! A cloud of smoke follows them, and Konnan swears he sees a dragon. There’s no such thing, man! Then what’s that over there? DRAGON!! Piff welcomes them to Vegas. Wow he’s real! Don’t touch him.
Another montage as the boys do their best to look sexy for the ladies. Who is that with his shirt off?! Sammy says he hates MJF. No he doesn’t. Yes, he does! HAHAHA! Hager and Wardlow are still staring each other down! But instead of fighting, Wardlow grabs some guy to DECK him! Hager does the same to some other guy! And so on, and so on! Moving on, an Elvis impersonator has somehow joined the group. To be continued…?
AEW shares Director X’s Boundless: The History of a Revolution.
Everyone knew coming in that they were a long shot. “We were opposed instantly by a giant juggernaut with a 40 year head start in pro-wrestling.” But they’re making a company that is wrestling by wrestlers for wrestling fans. Anything can happen, living literally their best lives and that was just year one. “If you don’t believe in yourself, why would anyone believe in you?”
AEW hears from Jon Moxley.
“This is a crazy ass ride I’ve been on for 16 years. But recently, now, finally, the whole world makes sense to me. How did I get here? How have I been AEW World Champion for so long?” The answer is Moxley’s dad. A 6’3″, 250 pound, “brick sh*t house,” box your ear if you got out of line. And scary. One day Moxley’s dad is in town, picks him up from the police station but doesn’t hit him. Instead, he just says something Moxley never forgot: “We’re the good guys. No matter what happens, no matter what’s going on around you, just remember: We’re the good guys.”
Moxley’s challengers have tried to lie, cheat and steal the title away from him. He’s been jumped, beat up, faced monsters and technicians, even his own friends. But Moxley always know what to do and always has. “We’re the good guys.” And now the whole world is bearing down on him, his body feels like hell to where he can’t get out of bed in the morning. He has a pregnant wife at home, he’s holding onto two titles for two different companies, he’s got challengers coming from ever which way, so what does he do? Moxley knows what to do. “We’re the good guys.”
So tonight, Moxley will go, sign the contract without hesitation, and look Kenny Omega in the eye as he shakes Omega’s hand, and then let him know in no uncertain terms, Moxley is the best in the world. “I am the AEW World Champion. I’m my dad’s son. And I am Jon G*DDAMN Moxley. And that is never gonna change.”

Tony Schiavone presides over the AEW World Championship contract signing!
“Needless to say, this is the biggest match we have ever signed for Dynamite. Winter is Coming, and it’s only two weeks away!” Kenny Omega challenges Jon Moxley, and is out first! Justin Roberts gives us a new list of Omega accolades: “Like Jon Moxley, he is undefeated in 2020 singles competition. Like Jon Moxley, he has been ranked #1 on the PWI 500. Unlike Jon Moxley, he is a Wrestling Observer Hall of Famer. And also unlike Jon Moxley, he has trained a failure at the Rush Fitness in North Carolina~!” It is Kenny, OOOOOOOMEEEEEGAAA~! And yes, the Sweepettes are back in their 80’s jazzercise outfits. Omega finally walks out on stage, revels in his pyro, and goes to the ring.
And then without much fanfare, which is his style, is Jon Moxley! At least, we thought. Wait, backstage, Moxley is DOWN!? Who attacked the champion?! His nose has blood coming from it and medics are calling for a backboard. Whoever did this, they hit him hard! Well, what does Omega have to say about this? “Look, I’m not one for this psychology type stuff, Tony.” Last time was an elbow, this time it’s a bloody nose. Omega won’t let Moxley avoid anything this time. Winter is Coming, Omega will be there, so hopefully Moxley will, too. Make sure to get this. Omega signs his part of the contract, but the pen is a little dry. There it is. That’s it for Omega! Will Moxley be able to compete with only two weeks left?
The Inner Circle’s Vegas trip, part 2.
Jericho just wants to say that they’re stronger than ever with their new member… ELVIS! They chant for the impersonator and he says, “Thank you. Thank you very much!” MJF says he needs to say something. Wardlow keeps him from falling over. MJF says he always saw himself as a lone wolf, but that now he wants to be part of a wolfpack. He has found that wolfpack! “I love you guys like blood brothers!” Yes, blood! Sammy will cut himself right now! WHOA, WHOA, WHOA! Sammy, stop! Don’t get all freaky on us! But MJF says it’ll be okay, man. They’re the Inner Circle! Sin City! And it’s a full moon! Wanna know what MJF wants to do right now? What’s that? “AO AO AOOOO!” They’re howling to the moon!
And then the next morning… Jericho wakes up next to Elvis, and they have gin?! Ew! And of course, he has a hangover. They don’t remember what happened. MJF wakes up in a tub, but he finds Sammy in a fountain. “At least I’m not soft.” Whatever, Sammy, shut up. Apparently Sammy wrote all over MJF’s face. After all, it says “Sammy Waz Here” on MJF’s forehead. Sammy drags himself up out of the fountain with help of the statue, and notices a ring on his finger. Did he get married last night? Ortiz hasn’t stopped pumping iron, either. OH no, Sammy has THREE wives?! There’s big and strong Mrs. Guevara, very old Mrs. Guevara, and the mysterious frisky Mrs. Guevara, whose face is obscured in the picture. Ortiz says that’s awesome! “I’ve always wanted a Mormon friend!”
Jericho and Elvis find Santana feeding chickens. Who brought the farm animals? Jericho calls out to the group, and they here crying…? Jericho and Santana open a door, and it’s… SWOGGLE?! This manbaby ain’t Santana’s… To be continued!

Darby gets up, facelocks but Starks slips out to hammerlock. Darby snapmares free and chinlocks but Starks slips out to the hammerlock again. Darby bridges back up, gets around, headlocks and clinches. Starks powers up but Darby whips. Starks reverses, Darby goes up the ropes and flies free! Darby dodges Starks, comes back to get around, spin Starks around and hammerlock back! Starks gets ropes, the ref counts and Darby lets off as fans rally. Starks SLAPS Darby so Darby SLAPS back! It’s a SLAP fight but Darby ROCKS Starks with that last one! Darby rains down rights, the ref backs him off, and Starks flounders about.
Starks tags Cage, Cody asks to tag in. Darby tags him in, and Cody stares Cage down. Cage headlocks, Cody powers out but Cage rams him. Cody stays up and double guns, but he still counter punches Cage. Cage spins and sobats, front kicks and whips, to hip toss Cody into a backbreaker! Fans boo but Cage drags Cody up to throw forearms. Cage whips, Cody slips off the scoop to shove. Cody drops, hurdles and dropkicks! Cage flounders, Cody is after him with forearms in the corner. Cody whips, Cage reverses and runs in but Cody dodges! Cage bounces off buckles, Cody goes up to MOONSAULT! Cover, ONE! Taz bails commentary to go back up his guys in the corner. Cody clubs Cage then tags Darby.
AEW goes picture in picture as Cody runs, springboards and BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cage staggers, Darby springboards to TRUST FALL! Cover, TWO! Darby keeps on Cage with a facelock and manages to drag him over. Tag to Cody and they mug Cage. Cody wrenches and whips Cage to ropes but Starks distracts the ref. Cage reverses and Taz takes a swipe at Cody! Cody glare at Taz but Cage clotheslines Cody out of the ring! Darby protests but the ref missed all of that. Coach Arn Anderson gets angry and throws a chair! So the ref EJECTS Arn!! Team Taz takes advantage again and Cage “puts on out” with a POWERBOMB to Cody on the floor!

Cover, Team Taz wins!!
Winner: Team Taz, by pinfall
The FTW Champion just pinned the TNT Champion! Will the Path of Cage gain even more gold for the team? And Starks won’t let off on Darby, either! Cody gets in to go after Starks but he’s 2v1 against Team Taz now! Starks and Cage stomp away on Cody and Darby, but here comes WILL HOBBS! Hobbs is still allies with Darby, and he spots something he likes in the FTW Championship! Cody hobbles up, and Hobbs CLOBBERS him?! After everything that’s been going on, Hobbs is now officially on Team Taz?!? When did that happen!? Taz says they’re just getting started! Who will be left standing when they’re finished?
A great episode pretty much top to bottom, but I don’t know if the moment we just ended on needed to happen tonight, if at all. The tag match of Cody, Darby and Team Taz was really good, and Team Taz stands tall because they won and because they got to beat down Darby and Cody after. And I get that they don’t want to pull a WWE and drop a storyline just because they don’t know what to do with it. They obviously teased one option and then completely went the other way, but I wouldn’t have done the swerve. Hobbs joining Team Taz is great for Team Taz, but I felt like Hobbs VS Cage in another match for the FTW Championship would’ve been cool. Hobbs is now the third active wrestler in Team Taz, but then what? Someone goes after TNT Championship, the other two are for the tag titles now? I suppose Cage and Hobbs make a great combo because they’re both big and strong, but something just doesn’t click for me yet.
Young Bucks VS Top Flight was an incredible match, and it was great to have the little vignette beforehand. Obviously Bucks won, but Top Flight are now stars in the eyes of fans who didn’t know much about them. I do find it interesting that The Hybrid2 are already starting something with Bucks through this, I would’ve thought they’d have a blow-off tag match with SCU first, but maybe that’s what Dark is for. Cassidy VS Kip was really good, and Miro did well on commentary. Miro VS Cassidy is surely up next, and sounds like a lot of fun already. Great video from “Director X,” I clearly copy-pasted the video from AEW’s YouTube. They already posted it hours before the show, it saved me time to do that, and it’s just easier for everyone.
The Inner Circle Las Vegas segments tonight were amazing, but of course they would be. Obviously a lot of it was inspired by The Hangover movie franchise, and I would love for it to somehow continue so that we learn who Sammy’s mysterious third wife is, how manbaby Hornswoggle got there, and what happened to Jake Hager and Wardlow for part 2. We also got a pretty good segment backstage with Jade Cargill unofficially becoming a Vicious Vixen, and I bet we at least get a tag match for Jade’s in-ring debut now since A) Vickie doesn’t wrestle and B) Brandi just got kayfabe injured with that chair vice to her arm. Red Velvet and probably Big Swole, since those two were there, take on Nyla and Jade and at least make Jade look strong before Velvet eats a pin.
Pac VS Blade was pretty good, but the best thing there was that we have the return of DEATH TRIANGLE! Also I think AEW had to change things, I was pretty sure they already advertised Pac and Fenix against Butcher and Blade before the episode. AEW still has trouble keeping track of pacing on occasion, but as long as the actual execution is right, I’ll forgive marketing mistakes. This of course must end with a full Six Man, Kingston & The Fam VS Death Triangle. The NWA Women’s Championship was great, even with Britt getting involved. Britt and Rosa in a non-title crossover of AEW and NWA works, as each woman has become a frontrunner for each promotion’s Women’s Divisions. And Anna Jay getting her shot at Shida now that she’s changed herself works fine. Shida will surely win, though, even with Dark Order shenanigans.
I really liked how AEW did something unique with the contract signing, with Moxley being “attacked” backstage before ever getting out there. I would think Lance Archer did that but he’s not afraid to be caught beating someone up. Omega brushed it off like an excuse but maybe he has something to do with it after all. AEW is branding December 2nd hard, constantly repeating “Winter is Coming,” but the world title match of Moxley VS Omega on national television is pretty big so why not do whatever you can to communicate that? I bet there will be a lot of winter and/or Game of Thrones themed decorations, the same way Bash at the Beach was summer and, well, beach themed. Also congratulations to Moxley and Renee for having a baby on the way!
My Score: 9.1/10

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

Backstage interview with Hangman Page and The Dark Order.
The number one ranked male singles wrestler and his new friends are here, and Alex Marvez wants to ask him about everything going on with Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers and the Young Bucks. Hangman chugs his drink then says he’s glad Marvez is here. Quick update on John Silver’s shoulder- Ow! Wait, isn’t it the other shoulder that was hurt? Yeah but Hangman’s slap to the arm hurt this one… Well give it another four to six weeks after some vitamins, prayers and egg rolls. Speaking of, Hangman’s gonna go get some egg rolls. Are the Dark Order in? YEAH! Alright! That didn’t answer…
Rehab time, Johnny! Silver lifts the bad arm all the way to 90 degrees! AWESOME! Will the Meat Man be back so that he and Alex Reynolds can chase those AEW Tag Team Championships?
Backstage interview with Mike Tyson & The Inner Circle.
The last time Tyson was in AEW, he and Jericho were enemies. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, but why? Jericho says it’s because over a month ago, when the Inner Circle received the most vicious beating of their careers from The Pineapp- No, the Pinnacle, they decided to change their ways, have a new attitude, and right some of the wrongs they’ve committed. Jericho called some of the people he felt he owed an apology to. The first was to Tyson, the greatest boxing champion ever. But after being at each other’s throats for over 10 years from a 2010 knockout on a Monday night, Jericho realized he has a lot of respect for Tyson, because Tyson has remained relevant and stand on top for 30 years, just like Jericho.
Jericho told Tyson how he felt, and Tyson said if Jericho ever needed anything, he’d be there. And that’s when Jericho asked Tyson to have their backs against “My Jerkoff Friend and his band of sour men.” Tyson had their backs, and will be the special enforcer for Jericho VS Dax, a man who just a few weeks ago, the Inner Circle put 10 stitches in his head. But though Tyson is the special enforcer, Jericho wants him to call this down the middle. Tyson says he’s firm but fair. So may the best man win. Tyson is happy to be a friend, but he won’t take a side. If Jericho messes up, Tyson will knock him out again. Tyson doesn’t want that, and Jericho doesn’t either because he still remembers that punch. But there it is! Tyson is fair, firm and enforcing the match tonight!
Red Velvet VS Jade Cargill!
Though Velvet and Cody Rhodes lost to the giants at the Crossroads, she and Jade are going to stir it up 1v1 to finally settle things! Will Velvet be serving up L’s? Or will Jade prove she is not just a storm, but #ThatBitch in AEW?
The second Jade jumps into the ring, Velvet attacks! The bell rings, they brawl and Velvet uses her boxing background to fire off! The ref backs Velvet off and Jade BOOTS Velvet right down! Jade clutches her arm but still stalks some trash. Velvet comes back to dropkick Jade into a corner! Jade kicks low and hard, then brings Velvet up to scoop. Velvet slips out to HOOK KICK! Jade staggers around, Velvet waits, and then baits Jade in to dump Jade out! Fans fire up as Velvet builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Jade hits railing! Fans are thunderous with Velvet as she stalks Jade. Velvet CLUBS Jade, whips her but Jade reverses to send Velvet into railing!
Jade scoops Velvet to taunt her friends, and then FALL AWAY SLAMS Velvet into the crowd of wrestlers! KiLynn King, Tesha Price and others are the collateral from that one! Jade goes into the ring, the others help Velvet up but she drags herself to ringside. Velvet is in at 5 of 10, and Jade smirks as she counts her abs. Jade ROCKS Velvet, hauls her up the ropes, and suplexes Velvet to hold her up for a SLAM! Jade kips up and she soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.
Jade stomps Velvet in a corner, stomps harder, and digs her boot in deep! Jade lets off as the ref counts, but Velvet fires off hands! Jade chokes Velvet into a buckle! The ref counts, Jade lets off and stomps Velvet again. Jade whips Velvet corner to corner so hard, Velvet goes through the gap and ends up on the apron! Jade drags Velvet back in, to ROPE GUILLOTINE! Jade drags Velvet over, turns her over and soaks up the heat as she drags Velvet back up. Jade talks trash but Velvet pie faces her! Jade pie faces back, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Velvet lands on her feet! Velvet swings on Jade but into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Velvet survives, Jade grows annoyed, and AEW goes to break.
AEW returns, Velvet SCREW HIGH KICKS Jade hard! Jade is in a corner, she dodges but then Velvet dodges and Jade POSTS herself! Fans rally with “Stir It Up!” as Jade and Velvet rise. Velvet LARIATS but Jade stays up! Velvet LARIATS again, Jade wobbles! Velvet dodges Jade to LEAPING LARIAT and bring Jade down! Fans are thunderous as Velvet runs and wheelbarrows, to BULLDOG! Velvet says, “I’M That Bitch!” Velvet stirs it up, has a taste, and STANDING MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Velvet drags Jade to a drop zone, goes up top and MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Jade moves! Jade drags Velvet into the chicken wings, JADED SLAM!! Cover, Jade wins!
Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall
Velvet miscalculates, and Jade gets another win off her! Will Jade drag Velvet out of the top five to head for the title in her own right?
Backstage interview with Britt Baker and Rebel.
The Doctor has been pulling double duty on Dark and Elevation, and she has “breaking news” regarding the AEW Rankings! Britt “respects” the system, and is now #3 at her 7-1 record for 2021. Anyone below her, irrelevant. But Red Velvet just lost by Jade Cargill, so she’s 5-1. Britt has two more wins than Velvet, so logic says she is now #2. And she promises she’ll work her way up the ranking so that she will be on Elevation this Monday. Then the people will get what we deserve: The Role Model as AEW Women’s’ World Champion, and not Hikaru Shida. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker, DMD.
Anthony Ogogo w/ The Factory VS Cole Karter!
The 2021 Olympic Middleweight Boxing Bronze Medalist for Team Great Britain is now here, QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solow in his corner! Will #TheGovenah lay down the law for The Thoroughbred?
Ogogo gets in Karter’s face, then the bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock for a moment, and Ogogo puts Karter in a corner. Ogogo lets off, shoves Karter, but Karter comes back to get a waistlock. Ogogo pries free to switch, but Karter pries free to arm-drag! Ogogo BODY SHOTS hard! That’s a TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT!
Winner: Anthony Ogogo, by referee decision
The crown jewel of QT’s Factory hits hard and fast, and makes his money even faster! Will Ogogo go for gold, while also going for the jugular?
“Here I am. They told me to show up again today.” But Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford have been avoiding him. He wants to smooth things over, but Kip knows Miro hates wasting time. So Miro is moving on, with or without him, to become champion! IF you work for this company and have gold, you better pull a Kip and disappear before The Best Man finds you, too!
Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Chris Jericho w/ Sammy Guevara, Special Enforce Mike Tyson!
The Pinnacle attacked the Inner Circle, the Inner Circle hit back, and we’re heading for BLOOD & GUTS! But before that, FTR wants to make sure Y2J understands who is who, and why he should #FearTheRevelation! But will Jericho make sure Dax is never, ever, EEEEEEVER the same… agayn?
Tully makes his entrance with FTR but he has to remember that other than Cash and the Spanish God, no other members of either faction is allowed ringside for this! The ref tells Tully to scram! Tully reluctantly steps out of the ring and up the ramp as the bell rings. Jericho and Dax stare down, circle and fire off fists! Jericho backs Dax down, rocks him and whips him, then CLOBBERS him! Dax flounders up and Jericho DECKS him! Dax bails out, regroups with Cash, and Jericho gets a CHAIR! Jericho brings that chair around but Tyson intercepts. This is not a disqualification match! Dax CLOBBERS Jericho! And bumps Jericho off the apron!
Dax CHOPS Jericho, then grabs Floyd the Baseball Bat, but Tyson takes the bat from him, too! Jericho ROCKS Dax, and whips him into railing! Jericho takes railing apart, drags Dax over and bumps him into a piece! Dax tears his way through the crowd, Jericho is after him and it’s a hockey scrum! Jericho chases Dax back to ringside, Sammy keeps Cash back, and the hands keep flying! Dax kicks Jericho, bumps him off buckles, then throws haymakers and stomps and CHOPS!

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks, and the rest of the Biz Cliz!
Matt & Nick, Kenny, Callis and the Good Brothers were just about to leave but Alex Marvez wants to talk with them. Clearly, these guys have changed the wrestling world again. Does AEW want a scoop? Well here’s the scoop! Get out of the way, Marvez! Callis has the mic to say, “If the wrestling world has learned one thing about all of us, it’s this: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t seen anything.” When the Bucks came back into the fold as the greatest tag team of the last 2000 YEARS, they came back to the family. This isn’t the end of the story, this is just the beginning!
Omega says they’re listening to “the interwebs, the radios, the podcasts, the people on the telly,” they all want to know why he and the Bucks have changed. They haven’t changed! They just got sick and tired of being what we want them to be. They’re sick of you non-sport numb-nuts wanting them to be just like you! They’re not like you! They’re them! That’s where you find success! And that’s why wherever they go, the gold follows. Matt says that this is fine, this is great, but this isn’t all fun and games. Didn’t you see the match they had? Matches of the year just pour out of Matt’s ear! The Bucks are BACK, and the AEW Tag Division has been put on notice!
So whether it’s SCU, Jurassic Express, Best Friends, Butcher & Blade or whatever they go by, you’ve all got BTE Triggers with your damn names on them! Callis says this is what it is! You wanted the old Omega? You got him! You wanted the old Bucks? BAH GAWD, you got them, too! So if you learn one thing, learn this: prepare to be surprised again! The Bucks fake out the cameraman with superkicks, but then CALLIS Superkicks!! NERD! Will all of AEW soon belong to the Biz Cliz?
Thunder Rosa speaks.
“As you have seen, I’m not only taking over the AEW Women’s Division, I’m taking over the world.” She doesn’t just want the AEW Women’s World Championship, she wants the NWA Women’s World Championship! Rosa is back on top, and whoever wins between Hikaru Shida and Tay Conti, she’ll go after you and that title. And Serena Deeb, she’s been missed. She has something that belongs to Rosa, too. Rosa is waiting for everyone because she is going to take over everything!
Kris Statlander w/ Best Friends VS Amber Nova!
The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is officially back in action, even after helping Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor & #JustTrent in Arcade Anarchy. Will she continue to be out of this world as she takes on Ms. Super Nova?
The bell rings and Kris wants to boop. She boops the ref! Kris and Nova tie up, go around, and Kris puts Nova in a corner. Nova goes up the ropes but Kris lets her go and Nova falls!

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

The Extra Talented put something extra on that one! Will The Factory dominate all of AEW?
Ryan Nemeth speaks.
“Every week, every show, every match, every opponent, The Hollywood Hunk proves he is a dominant force in AEW.” Looking at the numbers alone, Nemeth wins nearly half the time. Whether it’s Nemeth and Reynolds with Negative One, Tay Conti, whoever, Nemeth isn’t afraid of the cronies. Reynolds is technically sound, good looking, and a winner. But he is no hunk. Will Nemeth be looking his best against Number 3 of the Dark Order?

Alex Reynolds speaks.
“Tonight, State Farm presents: The Hollywood Hunk, Ryan Nemeth VS The Handsome Devil, Alex Reynolds.” Negative One says Nemeth was his babysitter. He sat on Negative One? Negative One is fired up, and wants to attack! Relax, Nemeth isn’t in the camera. Save it for the ring. Reynolds says that he isn’t taking this lightly. He and John Silver talked with the State Farm Superfan, Aaron, and came up with some moves to debut tonight. Reynolds has tricks up his sleeves. He won’t just win this for him or the Dark Order, but for Aaron and State Farm! Because like a good neighbor~, State Farm is there~!

Tomorrow nigh to Dynamite, in Falls Count Anywhere, I am going to show you just how extreme Big Money Matt can still be! And I promise you, Darby, I am going to leech the TNT title from around your waist!” Will Hardy put his money where his mouth is when he and Darby can fight all over Daily’s Place?

Brian Cage & Ricky Starks w/ Team Taz VS Carlie Bravo & Dean Alexander!

Starks gets a lot of assists here, and shares in the win as he hands Cage his FTW Championship. Is this a sign that Team Taz is united? Or is Starks being that passive aggressive?

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