Hangman Page VS John Silver w/ The Dark Order!

The fans are fired up for some #CowboyStuff as Hangman gets back in the ring! But can he get back on the horse, as they say, against Number 4? Or, given what we’ve seen on Being The Elite, will he give in and #JoinDarkOrder instead?

The bell rings and Silver wants a fist bump. The fans are conflicted but Hangman refuses the bump. Hangman and Silver circle, tie up, and Hangman wrenches to a wristlock. Silver spins through, headlocks and holds tight. Hangman powers out, they ram shoulders but Hangman rebounds to run Silver over. Things speed up, Hangman catches Silver to SLAM him! Silver boots back from the mat then keeps moving, to tilt-o-whirl and arm-drag! Hangman gets up and Silver dropkicks him down! Silver double guns and fans boo, but Silver cools things off. Silver tells Hangman they can hang, because Hangman’s jacked, too. Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS Silver down!

Hangman drags Silver up to CHOP him! Silver goes to a corner, Hangman CHOPS him again, then tries again. Silver dodges to CHOP and forearm and CHOP back. Hangman puts Silver back in the corner to CHOP once more! Fans fire up as Hangman drags Silver back up. Hangman whips and back drops Silver high and hard! Hangman tries to get a measurement on how high Silver went before he whips Silver corner to corner. Silver goes up and over, Hangman switches with him and Silver CLUBS Hangman on the back! Hangman chuckles and Silver says it isn’t personal, that was just some fun. Hangman whips Silver to the ring and triangle jumps, into an enziguri!

Silver goes up top, leaps, crossbody! Cover, TWO! Hangman gets to ropes and Silver throws big forearms. Silver keeps on Hangman in a corner, CHOPS him, but Hangman CHOPS back! Silver mule kicks, ROUND KICKS Hangman in the chest, then KICKS again! Hangman grits his teeth as fans rally up. Silver brings Hangman up but Hangman CHOPS him again! Hangman whips Silver to ropes, Silver reverses and runs him over with an elbow! Cover, TWO! Silver keeps his cool and he forearms. Hangman forearms back and the two go back and forth. Hangman gets the edge, but Silver gets around to SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!

Fans boo Silver but he grits his teeth as he runs at Hangman in the corner. Hangman pops Silver out to the apron, TRIANGLE LARIAT! Silver tumbles down, Hangman slingshots but Silver gets in. Silver DIVES but Hangman dodges! Hangman PLANCHAS and hits this time! Hangman puts Silver in, runs in at the corner to clothesline! Hangman rolls Silver and SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Silver survives and Hangman grows frustrated. Hangman’s peers are ringside are divided but everyone rallies up as Hangman brings Silver up. Silver blocks the lift, but Hangman ROCKS Silver with a right. Silver BOOTS back, hops up, and leaps, into Hangman’s arms! For a FALL AWAY SLAM!

Hangman kips up to STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Cover, TWO! Hangman keeps his cool and fans rally up. Hangman goes to the apron, takes off the armband and takes aim at Silver.

Hangman survives Silver’s onslaught and fans are fired up! Silver sits Hangman up to KICK him. And KICK him! Hangman laughs and eggs Silver on. Silver KICKS, and KICKS! Hangman throws forearms back then whips. Silver reveres and ROCKS Hangman!

Silver runs, Hangman spins him around to a backslide but Silver slips out to kick, kick and KICK! Hangman LARIATS! And then lifts for a SIT-OUT BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Hangman is shocked but he still has something to try! Hangman aims from the apron, BUCK SHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Johnny Hungy and Hangman was serving up soup bones! The Dark Order returns but not to fight. Evil Uno wants Hangman to understand this isn’t what that is. Uno has regrets about how they’ve treated him. But surely Hangman has regrets of his own. Hangman was a member of one of the most popular groups ever. But Hangman is also an individual who, no matter how many times he tried to leave, that group would not let him go. If that’s not a cult, Uno doesn’t know what is. Hangman has a lot on his plate, and not many people to rely on. But the Dark Order is here for him. Hangman knows where they are and where to find them. Will Hangman actually #JoinDarkOrder after all?


BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Winter is Coming, but it’ll heat up as the second-ever Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal will be held! MJF still holds his ring as the inaugural winner, and he’s in that match again alongside, Wardlow, Miro, Kip Sabian, Orange Cassidy, Shawn Spears, Scorpio Sky, Matt Sydal, Matt Hardy, Private Party, Sammy Guevara, Alex Reynolds, and even John Silver and Hangman Page! Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman add a ring to the collection? Or will someone else be joining him in the DDR club?


AEW hears from Kenny Omega.

Last week, the contract signing didn’t quite go the way it was supposed to. Jon Moxley was viciously attacked and never made it to the ring. Hopefully the contract signing finishes tonight. Omega says that after such an uneventful week, he has had time to reflect. It may sound cliché, Omega has come to the conclusion that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” If Omega looks back to a year ago, almost to the day, Omega was nursing injuries from facing Moxley. Omega will admit that, though it isn’t on the record, he did lose. Omega can do that, because he has changed.

Omega looks to the present and things are about to be the same. Instead of Omega’s face, he sees Moxley on every magazine cover, and having everyone call Moxley the best. That’s the change. But then after the title contender tournament, suddenly Omega’s name is brought back up. “The Return of the Cleaner, the Return of the Best Bout Machine, the Return of the TRUE Best in the World.” That is the same. The common thread that binds him and Moxley is the AEW World Championship. For a year, Omega has struggled, clawed and fought to be taken seriously again. And now when Omega gets his belt, then the people will consider him the best.

So this isn’t a stipulation, but a gentleman’s challenge: for one night, Moxley, “damn it please, leave the garbage wrestling at home.” No tables, no chairs, no garbage cans, no thumbtacks. Be the best by beating Omega in the ring. Pin, submission, or even choke Omega out. But do it with your ability. Omega will be waiting for his response in the ring. Good-bye, goodnight, all that jazz, sign the contract. Oh, and Omega adds this: yes, Moxley is the good guy, and congratulations on the baby. But listen to that childhood story of yours. It pulled at Omega’s heartstrings. But the thing is, Moxley’s dad didn’t seem that tough at all. Omega’s dad would probably beat the sh*t out of Moxley’s.

Harsh words and a lot of fire from Omega, but will he be the one put on ice when he and Moxley battle next week at Winter is Coming?


MORE news for Winter is Coming!

Things are not done between Cody Rhodes, Darby Allin and Team Taz! But things change a bit, as now “POWERHOUSE” WILL HOBBS will team with Ricky Starks against the American Nightmare and the #Relentless TNT Champion! But will Powerhouse have even more momentum going into that match with his match tonight? We find out, after the break!


Darby Allin has another video.

He smashes up another car, and sprays it with paint. “And now the fun part, Team Taz. Survive, if I let you.” Darby is taking Taz’s words and using them against him! And then Darby sets the car on fire! Will Darby burn down Absolute and the Powerhouse alongside the American Nightmare?


“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Lee Johnson!

A change of allegiance, a change of attitude, and now a change of name! Will Team Taz’s new Powerhouse absolutely crush Big Shotty?

The bell rings, Johnson dodges Hobbs and then goes up and over! Johnson keeps moving but Hobbs CLOBBERS him with that body block! Hobbs looms over Johnson while fans fire up and jeer! “You Sold Out!” but Hobbs ignores that to toss Johnson out! Hobbs then goes out and goes around the way to CLOBBER Johnson again! The Gunn Club are especially upset, they’re Nightmare Family but also Hobbs’ friends. Hobbs says “It’s just business.” Hobbs picks Johnson up to THROW him into railing! The ring count is at 6 but Hobbs drags Johnson up and in at 7. Hobbs stalks Johnson, lets him flounder up and tells him it’s not personal. Hobbs scoops Johnson for the POWERHOUSE SLAM! Cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

Big, strong, fast, and now mean as all hell. Taz joins Hobbs in the ring and says, “Here’s the deal, my man.” There is business to be taken care of. As you can see, Taz again has the FTW Championship that Brian Cage was only just holding. Cage and Starks have been celebrating big that Hobbs is now on their team. Go celebrate with them. Hobbs heads out and Taz says there is a problem. The FTW Championship and this company, AEW, are not cooperating. Taz is sick and tired of the disrespect, and the FTW Lifestyle not being acknowledged. He’s not dealing with it anymore. Taz wants management to get their asses get out here and make the title mean something!

There is a legacy here! There is a reason men, real tough bastards, hold this belt! So management, get out here! But then he’s MUTED! Taz sees how it is. He tells Justin Roberts to get up and give him his mic. Justin isn’t so sure if he should but Taz shouts at him. Justin gives the mic over and Taz talks again. Keith Mitchell, Tony Khan, you mute him again, he’ll take his ass to the desk and then grab a headset that they won’t be able to cut off. This isn’t his first rodeo, boys! But then the mic is muted again! Taz is pissed, but he’s going to follow through with his warning.

Security wants to escort Taz away, and here comes Cody from gorilla! Cody asks if Taz is done. Give Taz applause, because he is done. Cody is here out of respect. Taz is wasting air time, and next week is the match to settle it. Starks and Hobbs, Cody and Darby, isn’t that good enough? Taz tells Cody that he’s here for a reason. What’s happening next week will be the same as last week: Cody and Darby getting whooped. But that’s not why Taz is here now. Taz wants management to take the FTW Championship and put some respect on its name! He is tired of this sh*t!

Okay, Taz, okay. Someone from management is here, and Cody is hearing it, digesting it, looking at the title. How about he runs it up the pole? Oh, and what else is he going to say? Does “creative” have nothing for him? More corporate BS? Best of luck on future endeavors? Is that what Cody will do next? Oh okay then. Taz feels the FTW Championship means everything right? It’s so important, right? It’s so wonderful, right? Then answer Cody this! Taz’s son, Hook, is training to be a wrestler, right? Why the hell is he NOT training with Taz, but training with Cody?

Taz puts his mic down, and Cody says they’re done. Taz can’t believe Cody went there. That’s pathetic and stupid. Taz does turn to go, but then he sneaks up on Cody! TAZMISSION!! TAZMISSION!! Gunn Club gets in and Taz gets out! But the damage to Cody was done! And then Taz’s son, Hook, is there to hep his dad carry the FTW title away. Has this just escalated past Team Taz VS Cody and Darby to the Taz Family VS Nightmare Family?


Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston.

Death Triangle has reformed, and tonight, Fenix teams with PAC to take on The Butcher & The Blade. They’ve left The Fam, so how does the Fam feel about that? Well he isn’t angry with his former best friend, but he’s just really really really disappointed. Fenix is a showboat, likes to jump around and do flippy stuff, it was expected. As for Pack, Pac, Bing, Bong, Poop, whatever, “you’ve been gone for eight months, brother, things’ve changed!” The King is here! Pac won a battle, not the war.

But then Jon Moxley comes by and Kingston stares him down. Kingston says it wasn’t him who attacked Moxley. Kingston has his own stuff to handle. But Moxley does know who did it, and has that to handle, “champ.” Moxley leaves without a word, but who does Kingston mean?

AEW hears from the Vicious Vixens, Vickie Guerrero and Nyla Rose.

Vickie says today, “we’re going to have a lesson about nepotism. What does that mean? It is the practice among those with power who influence their friends in giving them a job.” Sounds a lot like Brandi Rhodes. What if Big Swole, Serena Deeb and Red Velvet were influenced by Mrs. Rhodes? On the other hand, Jade Cargill did not need to be influenced by the Vicious Vixens at all in going after Brandi. Nor does Nyla Rose need to be influenced to destroy her opponents in the ring. It seems Brandi’s business plan is set up for failure. So if she needs any advice, just call Vickie. Will things only get more vicious in the AEW Women’s Division as things go on?


AEW hears from FTR.

“Full Gear was supposed to be the dream match, and I don’t care how many of our peers message us, I don’t care how many legends say, how many journalists write that it’s one of the greatest tag team matches in history,” Cash Wheeler says that was one of the worst nights in his life. Dax Harwood says “there comes a time in a man’s life when he’s gotta dig deep in his soul. He’s gotta do some soul searching and be real honest with himself.” It pains him to say this, but Dax says that for three seconds, the Bucks were the absolute best. For three seconds, they were better than FTR. But beating Jessie James doesn’t mean you’re as bad as Jessie James, and FTR are the baddest, the incumbent, the incomparable! They need those titles, that is their life!

Tully wants FTR to understand that it is their destiny to be the best, and it is Tully’s destiny to be their coach, and for them to be a team! These two gentlemen are the next world tag team champions, and the Bucks need to #FearTheRevelation.


Chris Jericho & Jake Hager w/ The Inner Circle VS SoCal Uncensored!

The Demo God and Big Hurt are back in action as a team, and are aiming high as they take on the very accomplished duo in Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian.

Hager drags Daniels around to throw him out! The ref is distracted by Kaz, Jericho and Hager, and the rest of the IC OG start stomping away!

AEW hears from Miro, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford.

“Ladies and gentlemen, today is a big day!” Because today is the debut of the Miro & Kip Video Game Extravaganza! Let’s start with the- Orange Cassidy sneaks in and turns off their new XBOX! Miro is pissed and gives chase, but it’s a trap! Best Friends jump Miro and Kip! They brawl around the lot, Trent is thrown into the side of the trailer but he dodges as Miro runs in!

We can’t see the brawling continue, but surely this won’t be the end of it! Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royale aside next week, will it be #GameOver for Freshly Squeezed and Best Friends soon enough?


Tony Schiavone once again presides over the AEW World Championship contract signing.

Last week, this didn’t work out because Moxley was attacked. But with only one week away, this has to happen! We’ll see the two best wrestlers in the world face off for the title belt! First, the challenger…! “He is a Wrestling Observer Hall of Famer, who was voted by esteemed members of the wrestling industry. These esteemed members of the wrestling industry decided that he is a Wrestling Observer Hall of Famer. Unlike the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame, the NASCAR Hall of Fame is based in North Carolina~! He is, KENNYYYY~! OOOOMEGAAA!” The Sweepettes are back again as Omega makes his entrance from the tunnel, but wait who is that behind him!? MOXLEY ATTACKS!! Moxley attacks Omega and throws him throw his special curtain!

Moxley dumps Omega into the ring, throws punches then tosses him over the desk! Moxley grabs his belt and sets it in front of Omega. Omega grabs for it and Moxley stands on his hand! Moxley then drags Omega up, to give him a PARADIGM SHIFT onto the title!! Fans are going nuts as Moxley has Schiavone give him the mic. “Gentlemen’s agreement? Riiight…” Moxley isn’t sure who Omega got to take him out last week, but they did a piss poor job because Moxley’s still walking. Next time you wanna put a hit out on someone, just give Mox a call, he knows some guys out of Philly.

“And I thought our beef was squashed one year ago, and then you had to go and piss me off!” But don’t worry. Consider them even. There’s only one way to become champion, Moxley’s made sure of that. He has protected this championship. The only way you become champion is by digging down deep into your guts and find the Kenny Omega everyone thinks he is. Omega has to climb a mountain no one has been able to these last 18 months. You gotta beat MOX on December 2nd, right here on TNT, the biggest match in Dynamite history! The two best on the planet tangle for this title, “GOD I LOVE THIS S*IT!” Win, lose, or draw, Winter is Coming for Kenny.

This is not a game, jokes on BTE or dancing girls with brooms. When you come at the king, you best not miss, because Moxley doesn’t take prisoners. “Steady your hand, aim, and take your shot, Kenny. Because you’re only gonna get one.” And with that, Moxley signs his part of the contract! And thanks, Schiavone! Now it’s official! But who takes home the gold and who gets left out in the cold?


Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Before Marvez can say anything, MJF grabs the mic from him. “What kind of man sucker punches another man in the face?! I’ll tell you who! Frankie ‘The Coward’ Kazarian!” Hypocrisy aside there, Jericho continues. “Marvez, after a fair and square victory by the Inner Circle, Hager ‘Big Jake’ and myself, beating Christopher Daniels, beating Frankie Kazarian, Kazarian dares to put his hands on this man.” MJF can barely move his jaw and there will be dental issues, despite him just talking. That is not how the IC does things. Jericho said that the fun and games for the Inner Circle are done. They’ll go back to what they do best: beating the hell out of the AEW roster!

And guess what, Kaz? Jericho makes you famous! For the first time ever, Jericho VS Kaz 1v1 on Dynamite! Jericho will have his revenge on behalf of MJF! Kaz has had a great career, but next week, it’s over. But will things be just as “fair and square” as they were tonight?


AEW takes a closer look at the Women’s World Championship match.

Hikaru Shida and Anna Jay faced off once before, far earlier in the year, and Anna was little more than a rookie at the time. Anna says Shida took advantage of that. At Full Gear, Nyla Rose went after Shida’s knee at every turn. Shida says the knee is fine now, but that is what it is to be champion. Shida tells Anna that “Losing is learning.” If Anna needs the Dark Order and her friend, Tay Conti, to help her avoid losing, then what is she learning? But Tay is teaching Jay much, as both a blackbelt in judo and blue belt in jiujitsu. People might underestimate this friendship, but they don’t see that Jay and Tay make each other better. That is why Jay will be the champion!

But Shida wants to know Jay’s true strength, and see her true colors. Jay says that the last piece to her transformation is the title. The only thing in her way of that title is Shida. Shida says it isn’t the belt Jay needs. “It’s more heart. Bring it.”

AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida VS Anna Jay w/ Tay Conti!

The Full Metal Warrior was able to slay the Native Beast again at Full Gear, but now she’s against a Queenslayer! We heard from both, but will Shida be proven right as Tay accompanies Jay to ringside?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Number 99 looks to end Shida’s 20 singles-match win streak! But at the same time, Numbers 4, 5 and 10 are on stage. Will they be a factor in this rematch of now very different women?

Shida and Jay circle, tie up, and Shida shoves Jay away. Fans rally as they tie up again but then break again. Shida shoves Jay so Jay shoves back. Shida shoves, Jay shoves, and fans fire up! They tie up, Shida headlocks, Jay powers out but Shida runs her over with a shoulder. Things speed up, Shida rolls but Jay gets around to the sleeper! Shida avoids the Queenslayer hold and shoves Jay to a corner. Shida throws big forearms, whips Jay corner to corner but jay reverses. Shida goes up and up and whips Jay away. Jay reveres, Shida goes up again, to then tilt-o-whirl BACKBERAKER! And basement dropkick!

Shida drags Jay around, goes out and fans fire up as Shida aims. Jay swats the knee attack away! Jay bumps Shida off apron and whip her into railing! Jay CHOPS Shida, and CHOPS, and RAMS Shida into the apron again! Fans boo as Jay strikes the Dark Order pose. Jay brings Shida up and puts her in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture. Jay covers, TWO!

Jay keeps her focus as she rains down BIG right hands! Jay drags Shida by her leg and stomps it! Then Jay stomps hands! Jay has the leg, pulls Shida into a leg DDT, and covers TWO! Shida gets to ropes, clutching the bad knee, but Jay chokes her on the ropes! The ref counts, Jay lets off to bump Shida off buckles. Jay stomps a mudhole in, lets off as the ref reprimands, then runs side to side for a somersault KICK! Jay drags Shida to a cover, TWO! Jay seethes as she sits Shida up for a chicken wing and chinbar. Shida endures, reaches and elbows Jay, but Jay throws her down by her hair! Jay drags Shida up again but Shida throws body shots as AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Shida is up top. She drags Jay up but Jay fights back with body shots. Jay spins and HEEL KICKS Shida off the top! Jay gets in and BLOCKBUSTERS Shida down! Fans boo and Jay tells Tay to get “it!” A chair! Jay demands to have the chair but Tay says she doesn’t need it. The ref says she can’t use it, either, that’s a disqualification! Jay gives the chair to the ref, and Silver gets her Shida’s kendo stick! Jay aims and SMACKS the bad leg!! Tay protests, Jay covers, the ref doesn’t see it right away! TWO!! Shida survives but Jay puts on the QUEENSLAYER CLUTCH! Shida reaches out, rolls around, and sits up to roll back! BLINDSIDE ELBOW!

Shida drags Jay up, but Jay counters to a Sling Blade of sorts! Cover, TWO!! Shida survives again and Jay is furious! Shida stands, dodges Jay and crosses the arms, STRAITJACKET GERMAN! Jay sits up in a daze, Shida CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!! Jay survives but fans rally for Shida! Shida runs, TAMASHI!! Cover, Shida wins!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (still AEW Women’s World Champion)

The screwjobs and shenanigans didn’t stop Shida! She still has the title, and Anna Jay still can’t do it alone! Will Shida add onto her 21 match streak in 2020 to- Oh no. ABADON is here?! Another opponent Shida faced earlier in the year is back to haunt her, and this time it’s literal! Abadon snatches the title belt from Shida and licks it!! Abadon clearly wants the title, but will it take more than being a living horror movie to stop Shida?


AEW hears from Matt Hardy.

He introduces himself as the “iconic” Matt Hardy. “The most creative and innovative trailblazer in pro-wrestling history.” 2020 has been a difficult year for us all. Considering Hardy’s super stardom, he felt the need to inspire us to fight on. If Hardy can survive 2020, so can we. And when he secured a win at the ELITE DELETION, all was right in the world! So if Hardy can overcome insurmountable odds, than obviously we can conquer our pedestrian challenges. Just remember: if you’re feeling overwhelmed and ready to quit, just think “What Would Matt Hardy Do?” And the answer is survive, thrive and win! Hardy is doing his best to motivate the world, but will he be able to survive, thrive and win in the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royale?


Team Taz speaks.

Absolute Ricky Starks is absolutely livid as he shouts, “You have crossed a line tonight, Cody!” Taz left with his son, all because of Cody! Starks wants to be frank with everyone tonight: “We love it here at AEW. Tony, he takes care of us. He pays us good, he puts us in the main event matches, he puts us in big matches.” The only thing Starks has a problem with is Cody Rhodes! Cage agrees, and Starks continues to say that the only problem they have with Cody is that his “paper thin ego” gets in the way.

Tonight, Cody begged Khan to cut Taz’s mic, because Cody didn’t want Taz reminding the fans that Starks and Cage defeated Cody and Darby, the TNT Champion. And then Cody went all, “Hey, I’m training your kid!” You made this personal! So Starks and Hobbs are coming to bust heads! FTW, the most dominant force in wrestling! Who betta?


Death Triangle VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny!

It was very clear that things were growingly dysfunctional within Eddie Kingston’s “family,” and it all fell apart when it came to that World Title Eliminator Tournament. But now PAC is BACK, and he is once again with the Lucha Brothers! Fenix will be alongside the Bastard, will they break the Butcher and Blade down before Kingston’s eyes?

My Thoughts:

A great episode as the go-home to “Winter is Coming.” I was hoping for a bit more Game of Thrones references and jokes set up for next week, but maybe they’re saving all of those for next week. Hangman VS Silver was obviously going to be a win for Hangman, but I like that the story is there for Hangman possibly leaving The Elite for good, and then he joins Dark Order. I don’t know if he will, but it would definitely be something big for him and for Dark Order. But I wonder if AEW has put the Cabana story aside, since he’s basically in the position they’re trying to put Hangman in.

I find it interesting that Will Hobbs now has a name very much like “Hangman” Adam Page. “Powerhouse” Hobbs of course gets a win, but the character work during was very good. Fans and peers say he sold out but he says this is just business. He gets right in on the feud Team Taz has with Cody and Darby, but Taz coming out to argue about the FTW Championship and then things “getting personal” with Cody was a great way to escalate. Taz putting Cody in a Tazmission was itself a great detail, I wonder if this gives us an 8 Man Tag of the complete Team Taz against Darby, Cody and the Natural Nightmares, Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall. Perhaps at a certain point we also get a 6 Man Tag of Gunn Clubb VS Hobbs, Cage and Starks. And I think in the end, win or lose, the FTW Championship becomes officially recognized by AEW to give this stacked company a second midcard title.

TH2 VS Top Flight was a great match, but naturally TH2 wins, because they’re clearly next to feud with the Bucks. We got a really good promo from FTR and Tully, but it was mostly to bide time while AEW works up a feud for them on the way back to the top. There was a lot of energy during the Inner Circle VS SCU, I think it was brilliant for MJF to be the one with the last piece of the screwjob. Jericho VS Kaz next week will be a great match, but I want to see a Six Man of SCU VS Jericho, MJF and perhaps Sammy Guevara. I can already see there being an argument of who the third man should be, mostly revolving around Hager and Wardlow as muscle, but with Sammy’s AEW Dark promo and how he’s still not 100% trusting of MJF, that trio might make for the best combination.

Next week having the second-ever Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royale is also interesting news. I don’t think AEW would take MJF’s ring away, so they must be making a second ring so that potentially, there will be someone else with a ring. They can surely tease that MJF will win again to have two rings on one hand, or one for each hand, but someone else should definitely get that ring. I find it interesting that Hardy, after winning ELITE DELETION, started to shift gears in his promo to be the humble brag kind of Heel. Maybe he’ll win the battle royal to use the ring as a point of emphasis on what he was saying.

The story of the second contract signing was really good. Kingston clearly felt Omega attacked Moxley in some way and that made Moxley think the same. Omega’s promo talking trash on Moxley was really good, Moxley attacking during Omega’s entrance was great, and Moxley’s promo on Omega after was also really good. That match is going to be incredible, and I have no idea who wins, which makes it all the better. Death Triangle VS The Fam was a lot of good stuff, that attack from Kingston was brutal, and how surprising for Lance Archer to make his move now, as if he were a Face. If Pac is kayfabe sidelined, I could see Archer subbing in to team with Lucha Brothers to take on The Fam in a Six Man Tag, then things split off so Archer VS Kingston goes down as an unofficial contender’s match or something, to at least the TNT Championship.

My Score: 9.1/10

Vikingo GAMANGIRIS Komander down to the floor, then he fires forearms on Dralistico. Vikingo gets the fans fired up as he whips corner to corner.

Dralistico is furious that victory was snatched away from him in an instant! But this is why you cannot underestimate El Hijo del Vikingo! Will his AAA Mega reign continue through the summer?


Backstage interview with Team Triple J.

Lexi Nair is with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, as well as Jeff & Karen Jarrett, “and the talk all week has been that you, Sonjay Dutt, and your group will be suspended.” WHAT?! Fined? Suspended? The only ones who should be facing that is AEW itself! They backed Triple J into a corner and they came out swinging like any real fighters would! Lethal feels that there should be consequences for Aubrey Edwards! She’s been against Triple J since the dawn of time! Something needs to be done about her! Jeff adds that there’s been enough talk these past five days. Should the heat go on the promotion? Should the heat go on Briscoe? On Aubrey?

The reality of the fact is, these five people are walking, talking, fire-breathing heat! But wait, here comes Mark Briscoe! He wants everyone to simmer down. There will be no suspensions, he assures us that. Mark talked with Tony Khan, Tony promised them there would be no suspensions. Because if Triple J is suspended, then they can’t be here. Because if they aren’t here, then they can’t get the ass whooping they deserve! Lethal wants Mark to hold on but Mark tells Lethal to shut up! We ain’t talking about Lethal! We’re talking about Jeff and KAREN! What?! “We?” Who is “we?!” AUBREY EDWARDS!!

Triple J cannot believe this. Aubrey wants Karen? Then there’s nothing but air and opportunity between them. So then Aubrey CHOKES Karen!! Karen and Aubrey start scrapping and Triple J, other refs and security rush in to stop this! When and where will Double J & the one true Karen have to face off with the Sussex County Chicken and one pissed off zebra?


NJPW World Television Championship: Zack Sabre Jr. VS Action Andretti!

Speaking of just last night on ROH, the Frontman of TMDK just defended this belt against Rocky Romero to prove a point to “Samoan Joseph” about who is the better, harder working Television Champion. And here he is again as part of this championship edition of Rampage! Will the ZSJ Show continue on into the summer block? Or will NJPW have some #LightsCameraAction?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Action gets his 15 minutes of fame!

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The two circle, fans rally, feel things out, and ZSJ shoots in to waistlock and full nelson. Then he spins Action to a cravat, but Action pries at the hold. ZSJ facelocks now, Action wrenches out of that but ZSJ rolls and slips away. Fans cheer this opening exchange and the two reset. Action shoots in but ZSJ avoids him. They tie up with knuckle locks, ZSJ bridges back and wrenches around to then wrangle Action with a top wristlock. Fans cheer and ZSJ digs a knee into the shoulder.

Direct hit into the railing! Fans are fired up with Action and he brings ZSJ back up. Action puts ZSJ in, slingshots, but ZSJ shoves him! Action lands safe but swings into body scissors, which ZSJ makes into a HANGING TRIANGLE! ZSJ did this to Rocky last night! The ref counts, ZSJ lets go at 4 and he drags Action back in, to WRING the arm out! Fans sing “OH~ Zack Sabre Junior~” as he stalks Action. ZSJ sits on the arm, hammerlocks it, and TWISTS!

Action writhes while fans are torn over the savagery. ZSJ gets Action’s leg, steps over to get the arm, and he STOMPS the arm! “OI! TV Tekkers, mates!” ZSJ stalks Action to a corner, brings him up and UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! “This is Awesome!” and ZSJ knuckle locks to wrench Action. Action endures as ZSJ twists the wrist more, and then ZSJ KICKS a leg. Action stays up so ZSJ wrenches and twists the wrist. Action throws body shots and CHOPS! ZSJ jumps on to drag Action down to a DISARMER! Action endures, reaches out, and fans rally. Action kicks around, ZSJ pulls on the arm, but Action gets the ROPEBREAK!

ZSJ lets go in frustration but he storms up to drag Action up. ZSJ has a double wristlock but Action endures. Fans rally, ZSJ jumps on to body scissor! Action stays up but ZSJ keeps on that arm. Action throws body shots, then suplexes high and HARD! Both men are down and fans are thunderous! Action roars, runs, springboards, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cover, TWO! ZSJ survives and fans rally up again. Action brings ZSJ up, but ZSJ fights the torture rack to wrench and PELE the arm! And then he drop toeholds Action so he can STOMP the arm again!

ZSJ flops around, Action runs in again, “This is Awesome!” as Action SHOTGUNS ZSJ down! ZSJ is in the drop zone, Action goes up, SPLIT-LEG MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! ZSJ survives again but Action goes right to the apron. Action springboards, but flies into a TAKEDOWN! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!! Action flails around, but ZSJ gets the other arm! Modified Rings of Saturn, into JIM BREAKS ARMBAR!! Action verbally quits, ZSJ wins!!

Winner: Zack Sabre Jr, by submission (still NJPW World TV Champion)

Action’s 15 minutes of fame were really just over 10 minutes as The Frontman does it again! But now he moves on to defend this title at NJPW Dominion on Sunday against Jeff Cobb in a highly anticipated rematch. The Mighty Don’t Kneel, but will ZSJ get crushed by the Imperial Unit?


NJPW Strong Women’s Championship: Willow Nightingale VS Emi Sakura!

The Babe with the Power, too sweet to be sour, is the very-first NJPW Strong Women’s Champion after a powerful run at Resurgence. But will Willow make it through her first defense? Or will the Queen of Joshi take Willow’s throne already?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and one way or another, we witness a historic first defense!

The bell rings and the two RAM each other! Fans rally up as Emi and Willow RAM shoulders again! And again! Emi eggs Willow on so she says okay! Willow runs, RAMS Emi, but Emi roars! Emi runs, Willow follows and runs Emi over! Fans fire up and Willow waves. Willow brings Emi up to snap suplex! Willow runs up to CHOP Emi in the corner, then follows her along the ropes. Willow CHOPS Emi in the other corner and fans rally up. Willow puts Emi in the third corner, CHOPS, CHOPS and MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans fire up but Emi avoids the big chop. Emi runs in but Willow goes out to the apron.

Emi stops from hitting buckles, but Willow still counter punches her! Willow then brings Emi up, and fans fire up as they go up the ropes!

Emi goes out, signals to media to move, and laughs before she TOSSES Willow at railing! Fans rally as Emi runs in to SPLASH Willow against the railing! The ring count climbs as Emi drags Willow up and Rampage goes picture in picture.

BIG news for ROH!

On Friday, July 21st in Trenton, New Jersey, ROH returns to PPV with Death Before Dishonor! Tickets go on sale next Friday, June 9th!


Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, two technical masters go face to face when Lee Moriarty takes on Shibata for the ROH Pure Championship.” Nigel McGuiness says a competitor like Shibata can pick you apart, one body part by another. But Tony Schiavone and Taz say not enough is said about just how talented Moriarty is for such a young wrestler. It looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!

ROH Pure Championship: Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty!

The Wrestler defended this title just last night on ROH against his student, Alex “The Android” Coughlin. But now he faces #TAIGASTYLE, who has come close to snatching this title for his own not too long ago. Will tonight be Moriarty’s night? Or will Shibata make it through this Pure Wrestling Double Header?

The introductions are made, our judges are BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels & Jerry Lynn, and the belt is raised as we see who is truly THE Wrestler!

The bell rings and the clock is ticking on this 60 minute time limit. The two feel things out, Moriarty shoots in but Shibata holds him off with a sprawl. They clinch on the mat, Shibata slips to a waistlock and then a chinlock. Moriarty slips free but Shibata pushes him to a cover, ONE! Shibata wraps Moriarty up with his own arm and then goes for the armbar! Moriarty clasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE! Moriarty falls onto the ROPEBREAK, that is his first of three. Shibata even lets Moriarty know it as they reset. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder, clinch, and Moriarty tries for a leg.

Shibata powers Moriarty down, gets around to a waistlock, and they stand up. Moriarty pries the hold, fans cheer this technical exchange, but then Moriarty elbows free! Moriarty stomps Shibata into a corner, the ref counts, but Moriarty digs his boot in. Fans boo, but Shibata powers up to back Moriarty down! Shibata throws the foot down but Shibata ROCKS him! Moriarty runs to dropkick the legs out! Fans boo while Moriarty grits his teeth, and then the fans rally up for Shibata as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Moriarty mocks the applause as he stands over Shibata. Moriarty then says they can stop all that, and he grabs a leg to DDT the foot! Moriarty kips up, air guitars, and he ties up Shibata’s legs into a unique crisscross toehold. Then he sits with it for a modified stump puller! Shibata’s shoulders are down, Moriarty is practically stealing Darby Allin’s Last Supper! TWO as Shibata kicks out and Moriarty argues the count. Moriarty drags Shibata around, stomps a leg, then stomps it more and more before another DDT to the foot! Moriarty mocks the clapping from the fans, and then he drags Shibata around for a spinning toehold!

Shibata endures as Moriarty ties up the legs into another cross toehold. Moriarty puts Shibata into an Indian Deathlock, then he knuckle locks Shibata for a cover. TWO as Shibata gets an arm up! Moriarty pushes the arm back down, TWO as Shibata gets the other arm up! Moriarty pushes that arm down, TWO as Shibata gets both arms up! Moriarty CHOPS Shibata, pushes on the legs, then lets Shibata go. Moriarty gets a leg, hooks it, and ties Shibata up in another cross toehold, only for Shibata to trip him! Shibata gets Moriarty’s legs, steps through, but Moriarty fights the figure four! Shibata powers through to sync it in!

Moriarty endures, reaches out, but his shoulders are down. TWO as Moriarty sits up, Shibata keeps on the pressure, and Moriarty falls back onto his shoulders. TWO as he sits up again! Shibata has the extended leg caught in a heel hook behind his back! Moriarty falls back again, shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up! Moriarty endures, reaches out, claws at the hold, and he pries it open. Shibata works to keep it on tight, Moriarty is down again, TWO! Moriarty sits up, Shibata thrashes around, and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans rally, Moriarty drags Shibata along as he reaches back, but Shibata drags him from the ropes!

Moriarty scrambles and goes to the opposite side, ROPEBREAK! That’s his second, he has one left, and we’ve only just past six minutes! Shibata stomps Moriarty’s bad leg, has him in a corner, and he fires off forearms! The ref counts, Shibata fires again and again, but lets off at 4. Shibata runs corner to corner but Moriarty follows to KNEE him in the corner! And then HALF HATCH BRIDGE! TWO as Shibata fights out of the “pancake.” Moriarty HAMMERS away on the back of Shibata’s head! Fans rally, Moriarty suplexes, but Shibata blocks! Shibata powers out but Moriarty kicks low!

Moriarty runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Fans rally, Shibata stomps his legs into working, and he storms up on Moriarty. Shibata drags Moriarty up to whip him to a corner and BOOT! And he fires off more forearms! The ref counts, Shibata runs corner to corner, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Fans fire up for that Shibata signature and he drags Moriarty up. HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Moriarty is still in this but Shibata clamps right on with a chinlock! Moriarty fights to the ROPEBREAK, but that’s his last! Shibata waistlocks. Moriarty switches to roll up, TWO! But Moriarty rolls with to get the BORDER CITY STRETCH!!

Shibata endures, Moriarty pulls him back, but fans rally up. Shibata rolls things to a cover, TWO! Moriarty ROCKS Shibata, winds up, but Shibata ROCKS Moriarty! And then SLEEPER!! Shibata sits Moriarty down, runs, PENALTY KICK!! Cover, Shibata wins!!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall (still ROH Pure Champion)

Just past nine minutes and Shibata finishes things off, but wait! Daniel Garcia is here! The Dragonslayer is a former ROH Pure Champion, and he’s walking out right to the ring! Garcia steps in, he swaggers up to Shibata, and it is clear this is what’s next for Shibata. Shibata raises the belt to signal his accepting the challenge, will The Wrestler put down this sports… enner-tay-ner?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, though I’m surprised this wasn’t just a Battle of the Belts special. Excalibur said it himself on commentary in the main event, but it was great to start off with the epitome of lucha libre and finish on Strong Style technical wrestling. The AAA Mega Championship was a great opener, and was definitely another instance where I’m grateful we can pause things because they were going fast and furious. Or maybe at Flash speeds, since that’s a Warner Brothers movie they could plug. But as I figured going into this, all the champions retained, since none of these were AEW titles (directly, since ROH is a subsidiary of AEW now).

The NJPW World Television Championship continues to be a great title to watch because of the 15 minute time limit speeding things up. Likewise, ZSJ is always a great wrestler to watch, but so hard to write for cuz he has the biggest collection of named signature moves/holds of any wrestler I’ve seen. I had to double check what he was using to make Action tap, because I keep thinking things are Clarky Cat when they’re not Clarky Cat. ZSJ is setting a very high bar for this title, maybe he retains against Cobb at Dominion or maybe he loses, but it’s going to be hard for the second-ever NJPW World TV Champion to match what ZSJ has done.

Great first title defense for Willow and this title, she and Emi put on a great match. I wonder when Willow has her first defense on NJPW Strong, and who she’ll be facing. And we got a great Pure Championship match to finish, and I’m surprised it was so quick, even compared to the NJPW World TV Championship match. But great win for Shibata, I like that Garcia is stepping up, and that’s going to be an awesome match. I don’t know if they’re going to wait until Death Before Dishonor in July for that match, but knowing AEW and ROH, they can find a way to stretch things out. Especially with Garcia also busy being part of JAS and doing JAS things.

My Score: 8.7/10

Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS The Lucha Brothers & Bandido!

Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, along with Bryan Danielson, were victorious at Double or Nothing in Anarchy in the Arena II, but they had some help at the end. We’ll hear from dirty Don and turncoat Takeshita later, because right now, the BCC want to unleash #DeathJitsu on the ROH World Tag Team Champions & The Most Wanted! Will the Maniac, the Swiss Superman and the Decoder prove they’re ready for more violence?

Fans are fired up for the Lucha Bros & Bandido but the BCC isn’t amused. The trios sort out but then everyone starts shoving. Then they start brawling!

Bandido goes past TWENTY, and then the Lucha Brothers each grab Moxley and Claudio to hammerlock arms. DOUBLE SACRIFICE ARMBARS!! Bandido makes it to THIRTY but he isn’t done!!

Bandido makes it to FORTY, and then FIFTY!! Yuta’s head is almost as red as Bandido’s outfit as we get to SIXTY, and the SLAM!! Cover, TWO!?! Yuta survives and Bryan is proud of his student again.

Fenix SCREW HIGH KICKS Mox, but Claudio CLOBBERS Fenix! Penta SUPERKICKS, whips, Claudio reverses but Penta goes up and over, BACKSTABBER!!

Penta crawls, as does Yuta, hot tag to Bandido! He HOTSHOTS Yuta, springboards but Yuta moves! Bandido FLOPS, then distracts the ref! Claudio & Moxley drag Bandido out to ASSISTED PILEDRIVER to the floor!! Bryan loves it while fans boo, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta snap suplexes Bandido up and over, then drags Bandido back up. He fists bumps Claudio, puts Bandido in the ring, then tags Moxley. Moxley keeps Bandido from the corner with a facelock, but fans rally up. Bandido fights to his feet, only for Moxley to HALF HATCH! Moxley then tags Claudio in, they stomps Bandido, then Claudio grabs an arm to grind it down. Bandido endures, fights to the ROPEBREAK, but Claudio brings him up. Bandido throws body shots but Claudio chinbars to keep him from the corner. Claudio whips and CLOBBERS Bandido, then flexes. Tag to Moxley and the BCC stomp Bandido again.

Moxley gets the legs to stomp Bandido int he stomach. Moxley then turns Bandido with a HALF CRAB! Bandido reaches out, Yuta tries to keep the rope from him but the ref reprimands. Fans rally up, Bandido gets the ROPEBREAK! Moxley lets go to bring Bandido up and he throws knee after knee. Moxley whips, Bandido sunset flips, but Moxley rolls through to KNEE Bandido down! Cover, TWO, but Moxley gets the arms for DRAGON STOMPS! Moxley drags Bandido to a cover, TWO! Moxley grabs an arm to hammerlock it and grind Bandido down.

Fans rally but Moxley chinbars Bandido into a chinlock. Bandido still endures, but Moxley wraps Bandido arms around for a straitjacket stretch. Bandido still fights up and JAWBREAKERS free! Moxley runs in to clothesline at the corner! And again! Moxley talks trash on Bandido, whips him corner to corner, but Bandido BOOTS him! And UPPERCUTS! And goes up top for a TORNILLO! Direct hit and fans are thunderous! Both Bandido and Moxley crawl, hot tags to Claudio and Fenix! Fenix waistlocks, Claudio fights it and elbows free to then whip.

Claudio returns, Penta dodges and SLINGBLADES! Penta goes to a corner, Claudio runs in but Penta pops him up into a headstand, to SUPERKICK him down! Penta then uses Claudio to victory roll and jump, DDT for Moxley! Claudio LARIATS in return!! Fans fire up again as Claudio stirs. Claudio drags Penta back but Penta kicks him away. Hot tags to Yuta and Bandido! Yuta and Bandido fire forearms back and forth!

The fans are on Bandido’s side but Yuta ROCKS him! Yuta eggs Bandido on, and the forearms go back and forth again! Bryan says Yuta’s technique is the advantage, but Bandido starts using speed! The forearms keep going and the fans fire up! Yuta BITES Bandido’s forehead! Yuta runs, into a DROPKICK! Bandido throws off the shirt and fans are thunderous again! Bandido whips, pops Yuta up, CUTTER!! Bandido goes up, the Lucha Brothers get in. “CERO! MIEDO!” The Lucha Brothers DOUBLE TOPE to take out Mox & Claudio! FROG SPLASH for Bandido! Cover, TWO!!!

The ref reprimands, Penta ENZIGURIS Moxley! Yuta sends Bandido to ropes, Claudio UPPERCUTS Bandido! Yuta BUSAIKU KNEES, to the HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS!!! Bryan calls ever shot, and then Yuta shifts into the SEATBELT! The BCC wins!

Winner: The Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

Bryan celebrates with his guys, though the fans aren’t as happy about it. Will the BCC soon look to take over AEW one division at a time?


Backstage interview with The Elite.

Alex Marvez is with Hangman Page and the Young Bucks while Matt Jackson is having his foot taped up. Anarchy in the Arena II was perhaps one of the most brutal matches in AEW history, what is the status of Matt and the rest of the team three days later? Matt says a long time ago, he told Hangman that he brings out the good in them. Safe to say, after Sunday, the BCC bring out the worst in them. Never thought the day would come where Matt would try to melt the face of another man with an explosive sneaker, and alas, here we are.

Nick, a big bandage on his forehead, recounts Hangman saying that they are the heart, the soul and the spirit of AEW. Not one setback is gonna keep them down! Hangman says they are still standing, still swinging, and still breathing! To be a group that prides themselves on being the best, the BCC sure love to use numbers. But the truth is- Wait, in walks the Dark Order. They tell Hangman, “Good to see you.” Oh, did Matt hurt his foot? Silver says Hangman is with his new-old best friends, they should probably just go. Sorry about that. Hangman wants to respond to that, but Marvez has one more question.

It has been said, rumored, that Kenny Omega has left the country and gone home to Canada based on everything that’s happened the last few weeks. Any word on that? Hangman says Kenny is hurt, he is pissed, and yes he is out of the country, but he’s not in Canada. Hangman excuses himself to chase after The Dark Order, what is the status of that friendship? What is the status of The Cleaner after further betrayal by men he once called friends?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Double or Nothing is in the rearview mirror, and he welcomes out two men who were very active that night, Jay White & Juice Robinson, Bullet Club Gold! The Switchblade & Rock Hard make their way out, and White says the money’s here! Schiavone says their issue with Ricky Starks seems never ending. They get in close and he says they attacked Starks backstage! White starts by saying that Double or Nothing was a great night. Fans cheer and White applauds, too. But White bets Starks feels he’s on top of the world after he eliminated Jay & Juice from the battle royal.

But as a reminder to everyone, especially to Ricky Starks, he’s not the International Champion. he lost that battle royal just like he lost to White. And Juice says that brings them to FTR! BCG wants to know, WHY, Dax & Cash, did you come to the aid of “sweet boy” Ricky? It doesn’t make sense! There’s no way FTR are friends with Ricky Starks, because we all know Ricky Starks ain’t got no friends! White says we also know FTR are “a couple of Southern boys,” so maybe they’re a little bit slow. And they look dumb, too, have you seen them? You heard them talk? They sound pretty dumb, too!

White just didn’t actually think they were dumb enough to get in the Bang Bang Gang’s business! But wait, here comes FTR! Dax & Cash are still AEW World Tag Team Champions after Mark Briscoe saw who were his real friends on Sunday night. The champs get in the ring but White uses Schiavone as a shield. Seems FTR are that dumb. Juice says keep this cordial. This isn’t them being dumb, they’re here to apologize! White isn’t so sure, but maybe Juice is on to something. Maybe they’re also here because they wanna join BULLET CLUB GOLD~! Yeah? Huh? White says FTR are ready to be some Gold members!

So do they wanna join the top shelf gunslingers? Top Shelf Top Guys! If they wanted to join, all they had to do was ask. Just make sure you do it politely. White holds out the mic to Dax, then drops it as he reaches out. Fans boo and Dax glares at White. But then Juice sucker punches Dax! FISTFUL O’ SILVER DOLLARS!! Cash TACKLES Juice, but White goes after Cash! The BCG mug Cash while Dax writhes, clutching his jaw! Juice drags Dax up, JUICE IS LOOSE!! “Take that!” White gets Cash for a BLADERUNNER!! “That’s what you get!!” But here comes Starks! Starks runs BCG off and grabs the mic.

“Hey you two cowards! I’m sick of you two every single week! So how about this? You keep that jabroni ass freak in the back, and you and me, Jay, we finish it next week on Dynamite! YOU PUNK ASS B*TCH!!” The Absolute throws out the ultimatum, will he and King Switch finally put an end to this?


Tony Khan has an announcement for AEW Collision.

“It’s great to be here tonight in San Diego. The last few weeks, we made some announcements regarding the debut of AEW Saturday Night Collision, starting June 17th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. I’m here tonight to give you a little more information about the debut of AEW Collision. I’m here to announce that AEW Collision, beginning June 17th, will feature… CM Punk!” Fans go wild hearing that! The Best in the World, the polarizing Plus Delta of AEW, is making his return in his hometown! What kind of collision are we going to say for that debut episode?


Triple Threat: Swerve Strickland VS “Big Bill” Morrissey VS Trent Beretta!

The Blackjack Battle Royal was a bust for everyone hoping to take the title off Orange Cassidy, but there was a lot of beef between these three men during all the chaos. Who scores a much easier win under 33% odds versus the one in 21?

The bell rings and Swerve bails out so Bill can’t get him. Fans boo but then Bill turns his attention to Trent. Fans fire up and Bill storms up on Trent. Trent slips away to not be cornered, then he CHOPS Bill! Bill scowls and dusts himself off. Bill storms up again, Trent slips away again and headlocks. Bill powers up but Trent holds on. Bill powers out, Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges and DIVES onto Swerve on the outside! Fans fire up as Trent puts Swerve in the ring saying “You’re turn!” He wants Bill to get at Swerve and Bill’s fine with that. Swerve wants Bill to hold on, but then he swings on Bill!

Bill blocks the punch, so Swerve kicks a leg. Swerve goes to whip but Bill blocks that, too! Bill whips, Swerve goes up and around and BOOTS Bill! Trent returns to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Bill just choke grips back! Bill BOOTS Swerve, then shoves Trent to a corner. Bill SPLASHES Swerve, SPLASHES Trent, and repeat! Bill clotheslines Swerve up and out! Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges but Bill FLAPJACKS Trent then BOOTS him down! Fans fire up with Bill while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Bill watches as Trent crawls back in. Bill kicks Trent, drags him up, and CLUBS him back down. Bill then steps out to go after Swerve. Fans fire up as Bill stalks Swerve around the way, then UPPERCUTS him! Swerve CHOPS, Bill TOSSES him to the ramp! Swerve writhes, Trent goes out after Bill and throws body shots. Bill ROCKS Trent with a haymaker! Then he SMACKS Trent off the steps! Trent falls and Bill soaks up the cheers and jeers. Bill stalks Swerve on the ramp, drags him up, and brings him around to SMACK him off the apron! And then CHOPS him against the apron! Swerve sputters and drops to his knees.

Bill gives a toying kick to Swerve, but Swerve comes back with a CHOP! Bill ROCKS Swerve with a right hand! Bill then kicks Trent down. Bill soaks up the cheers and jeers as he brings Swerve around the way, to scoop, but Swerve lips off! Swerve POSTS Bill, Trent SPEARS Bill! Fans fire up but then Swerve RAMS Trent into the railing! Swerve puts Trent on the apron, goes up after him, and fireman’s carries. Trent fights free, but Swerve CHOPS him! Trent ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Trent and Dynamite returns to single picture, right as Trent ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Trent back so the shots keep going!

Fans fire up but Swerve knees low! Swerve fireman’s carries, Trent slips off again, but Swerve fights the half nelson! Swerve throws elbows, Bill gets in the ring and runs that way, Trent pulls Swerve into the path of the BOOT! Down goes Swerve, then Trent SHOTGUNS Bill off the apron! Fans fire up as Trent goes up a corner, to ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Down goes Bill! Fans fire up with Trent but now Swerve goes up to BOOT from the apron! Swerve drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and fans rally up. Trent is in a drop zone, Swerve goes up the corner. But Bill choke grips him! Swerve fights the arm but Bill CHOPS him!

Bill climbs up to join Swerve, choke grips again, but Trent hits Bill low! Trent climbs up, but Bill grabs him, too! But then both Trent & Swerve throat chop! Fans boo, but Trent & Swerve work together to DOUBLE SUPERPLEX Bill!! All three men are down and fans are thunderous! Bill goes to a corner, Swerve and Trent throw forearms again! They go back and forth, Swerve throws body shot after body shot! Swerve runs, but Trent gets around, HALF ‘N’ HALF! Swerve tumbles out, Trent builds speed, but Bill scoops! BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!!! Cover, Swerve HOUSE CALLS! Cover on Bill, TWO?!?!

Bill survives but Swerve rolls to COMPLETE SHOT Trent! Trent sits up, Swerve goes up, KILL- NO, Trent avoids the stomps! To BUSAIKU KNEE!! Trent reels Swerve in, PILEDRIVER!! Cover, BILL BREAKS IT! Bill stalks Trent to the apron and fans fire up. Bill drags Trent up but Trent CHOPS! Bill doesn’t budge, so Trent CHOPS again! Bill clamps onto Trent’s throat, CHOKE SLAM into the ring! But Swerve APRON KILL STOMPS Bill!!! And then roll-up on Trent, Swerve wins!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

The Mogul takes advantage and gets a huge win! Will Swerve soon be aiming for another title shot?


Kris Statlander speaks.

“Today’s date is May 28th, 2023. It’s the PPV, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I am officially cleared. I am your NEW TBS Champion. It’s been a long time coming, and this whole time, I was never really sure if I deserved it. Not sure if I was someone deserving of this moment. It just really shows me how much not only does this place mean to me, but how much I mean to AEW. It’s just so nice to physically hold something to feel like you deserve it for once. Not only am I gonna prove to everyone that they were right, but I’m gonna prove to myself that this is my time. And I’m gonna have the best damn title reign anyone’s ever seen.” But she’s already putting the title on the line, will her time be short?


Renee Paquette is on stage.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass.” Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn are here, and Renee says that unfortunately, thing didn’t go their way in that AEW World Trios Championship match. They asked for this time, so the floor is theirs. Billy says Renee is right, things did not go quite the way they’d planned. But that’s okay! Because anyone can get beat at any given time. Billy’s biggest regret is that he let his guys down. Caster says that Billy shouldn’t blame himself. They win as a team and lose as a team. They won a lot as a trio, undefeated until facing House of Black.

And see, Caster is the best wrestler alive, Bowens is the Five Tool Player, and Billy is the legend! They ARE The Acclaimed, they are the People’s Choice. Bowens says that is right. And their goal remains the same. A few months ago, Acclaimed were screwed outta tag team gold. Fans boo that, but the Acclaimed want gold back! “And this man, this legend, after over 30 YEARS of giving his all to the business, of giving his all to each and every one of you, giving his all to us, this man deserves to hold gold one more time!” Fans love the sound of that! They chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”

Bowens says do not worry about it, Billy, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So the goal remains the same, and the three SCISSOR FINGER~! Will they cut down the House of Black one way or another? Or will the House always win?


Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

The bile rises in his throat as he has to say these names. “Here comes… Don Callis! And… Konosuke Takeshita.” Fans boo as Callis & Takeshita walk their way out to no music, but with highlights of Callis helping the BCC cheat the Elite. Callis & Takeshita go to the ring to join Schiavone, and Schiavone says, “Sunday night, Double or Nothing, not so sure. We talked to Bryan Danielson, whose side are you on? Whose side are you with? One thing we know for sure, you apparently have yourself a new protégé.” Callis grins but fans boo, and Callis says he sincerely hopes that such boos are for Kenny Omega! No, they’re for Callis.

Callis continues to say he is the REAL victim here! He has done everything for Kenny Omega! The booing gets louder! And they’re even flipping Callis off! Callis says Kenny only had what he had because of Callis! The AEW World Championship? All Callis! Kenny chose his friends. Every morning, Callis has to get up and look at the scar on his head! 23 stitches! And Callis blames it all on Kenny! Kenny destroyed Callis’ family! And maybe Callis lost a nephew, but he gained a son in Konosuke Takeshita! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Callis says Takeshita is the best athlete he has ever seen in wrestling! 6’3″, 240 pounds, and you know who he’s better than?

Konosuke is better than Rikidōzan! Better than Antonio Inoki! Better than Keiji Mutoh! And yes, better than Kazuchika Okada! But you know who else he’s better than? We’ll see it very soon, too! Konosuke is better than Kenny Omega! Konosuke gets the mic to tell everyone Japanese that they’re all stupid! Kenny Omega is nothing! And they all know it! Then in English, “We will destroy the Elite! We will destroy Kenny… Omega!” Callis tells Kenny that he destroyed his family so Callis is building a new one! And that new family will cut the Elite out of All Elite Wrestling! Fans boo as hard as they’ve ever booed before, but will that not stop what Callis is planning for Kenny Omega?


Arn Anderson & Wardlow speak.

The Enforcer says that before Double or Nothing and the ladder match, he cut through all the BS and asked Wardlow one question: What are you willing to do to Christian Cage? Everyone’s giving Arn a bunch of hoopla about biting that giant lizard’s thumb. But Wardlow got manhandled, and when you snatch Arn by the neck, what you think’s gonna happen? Wardlow says Luchasaurus found out not to get involved with their business. Arn wants to know what Wardlow’s willing to do, and he answered that. There are no more limits! If Luchasaurus wants to be next, Wardlow will be more than happy to finish the job!


Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin VS The Gates of Agony w/ Prince Nana!

Freshly Squeezed is still the AEW International Champion after facing the steepest odds possible, while the Relentless One could not overcome MJF, Sammy Guevara & Jack Perry all at once to become AEW World Champion. But will this unlikely duo keep going against even this daunting duo in front of them?

The teams sort out, but Bishop Kaun shoves Darby off the corner! And Toa Liona goes after Cassidy with clubbing forearms! The bell rings, Kaun keeps after Darby on the outside, and Cassidy just gets his jacket and shirt off. Kaun CHOPS Darby, Liona pushes Cassidy down, then Liona drags Cassidy up to whip corner to corner. Cassidy tumbles up and out, baits Liona in and shoulders into him. Cassidy bumps Liona off buckles, but Liona just glares at him! Liona drags Cassidy up and into the ring to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Kaun scoops Darby, but Darby slips free to POST Kaun! Darby tags in!

Kaun drags Darby up and over, tags Liona in, and the Gates mug Darby in the corner. Liona paces, the ref reprimands, but Kaun digs his boots into Darby!

Liona gets the legs, yanks Darby up but Darby slips to the outside! Darby HOTSHOTS Liona, but Kaun trips Darby to RAM him into the railing! And then apron! And then railing! And then apron! And then a whip into the railing! Liona rushes around the way to CLOBBER Cassidy!

Fans boo but The Mogul Embassy is pleased while Dynamite goes picture in picture. Kaun drags Darby but he’s deadweight. Kaun gets Darby up and into the ring, covers, TWO! Kaun rains down fists on Darby, lets off to soak up the heat, and then he drags Darby back up. Kaun fishhooks the nose but the ref reprimands. Kaun lets go, Darby goes to a corner, but Kaun fires off on him. Darby hits back, but Kaun kicks and whips to then kitchen sink knee! Kaun stands on Darby for a cover, ONE! Kaun drags Darby over, tags in Liona, and the Gates stomp Darby at the ropes. The ref counts, Liona steps off, then drags Darby back up.

Liona scoops Darby, SLAMS him, then SPLASHES! Darby writhes while Liona looms over him. Liona CLUBS Darby in the side, drags him up and pushes him into the corner. Kaun tags in, Darby is in the ropes, and Kaun kicks him to the floor. Kaun taunts Cassidy, then goes out to stomp away on Darby. Darby scrambles into the ring but Kaun is after him. Kaun stands on Darby’s hands to keep him from reaching Cassidy! Kaun stomps the hands, puts him in the Gates’ corner, then CHOPS him! Darby sputters, drops to a knee, and Kaun taunts Cassidy. Fans rally as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Kaun puts Darby up on the top rope, climbs up behind him, and then scoops for a TOP ROPE BACKBREAKER! Darby writhes on the apron, Liona hits an APRON SENTON! Liona then BLASTS Cassidy, drags Darby up, URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Darby is hanging tough and fans fire up! Tag to Kaun and the Gates circle Darby. Fans rally up but The Gates drag Darby up and high five, but then Darby flops over. The Gates laugh, and Swerve smirks seeing his old rival suffer. But Darby fights back with CHOPS! Liona doesn’t budge! Liona choke grips Darby, he and Kaun throw him to the corner!

Darby comes back, leaps but the Gates catch him to throw him back! Kaun runs in but Darby dropkicks his leg out! Liona runs in, but Darby BOOTS him down!

Cover, Darby & Cassidy win!

Winners: Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin, by pinfall

But the rest of the Mogul Embassy makes their way to the ring! Swerve & Cage glare right at Darby & Cassidy, and Liona & Kaun both get up. But wait! Here comes STIIIIING! The Icon is back, and he has his baseball bat! Fans are thunderous as Sting steps into the ring and the Embassy backs off. Will Swerve’s house have to worry about the showtime?


MJF speaks.

“AEW fans, AEW fans! Oh my God, clock’s ticking and you’re running out of competition. Darby Allin, you sweet, sweet little emo b*tch. Once again, you found yourself victim to a maneuver as simple as a headlock takeover. Now if that’s not telling about my competition around here, I don’t know what is! You are running out of gladiators for me to slay, you are running out of people you could possibly claim that are better than me. And you know it. Once again, it has been made abundantly clear, and this time, in Sin City, that nobody is on the level of the Devil!” Will anyone ever exorcise MJF away from the AEW World Championship?


Tony Schiavone is once again in the ring.

He welcomes us back, and thanks San Diego for being part of this great night. But wait, here comes Hook! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, the undefeated FTW Champion, steps in the ring. Schiavone says Hook once again helped the Hardy Boyz against Ethan Page at Double or Nothing. But then, what is next for Hook? But wait, someone interrupts. It’s Jose of La Faccion Ingobernable! He has Dralistico y Preston Vance with him, and he “apologizes” for interrupting Hook’s time, but this is the only way LFI is gonna get TV time here! There are two studs here who have never been given opportunities the way Hook has.

Fans boo but Jose says they know it’s true. Rush is too dangerous to be on TV, so he isn’t here right now. Salud, Rush. But where are the fans when they need LFI? When LFI is looking for chances and they get NONE? But they’re gonna start taking opportunities! Show this perro what LFI is about! Dralistico & Vance mug Hook, but here comes JUNGLE BOY! Jack Perry has helped Hook out before, and he’s here again, with a chair! JB JAMS Dralistico, JAMS Vance, and then he SMACKS them both down! Jose sneaks up, but JB sees him first. Jose runs away into the ring, but that’s where Hook is!

Hook clinches to hit the EL CAMINO! Jose flops out of the ring, JB joins Hook in the ring, and they fist bump. Will #JungleHook reunite to shut LFI up?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee is with Saraya, Ruby Soho, and the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm. How does it feel this time around to be champion? Oh, c’mon, look at her! She’s having a great time! She has the world title, the world’s best friends, and she couldn’t be doing any better. A lot of people say she’s just very lucky, but luck’s got nothing to do with this. Toni’s been wrestling since she was 13 years old, a child really! Over half her life! That’s because she’s been all over the world, carrying everyone’s bags and doing everything she can to get to this point.

The Outcasts look around this locker room, and they see no one who could carry Toni’s bags. Ruby says Toni is being very humble. No one anywhere could match Toni’s work ethic. Toni is gracing the AEW fans with her presence during the House Rules live shows. And she’ll even defend this title. That is what a fighting champion does! Oh so humble! Saraya loves Toni so much. But really, there is really no one worthy of carrying Toni’s bags. Not at all. But they’ll keep looking out. And as for “luck,” the only lucky ones are the fans. Who will be “lucky” enough to have some #ToniTime this summer?


AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Nyla Rose!

The Galaxy’s Greatest made perhaps the greatest return possible, answering the open challenge of the cocky Jade Cargill. Not only did she end Jade’s reign, she ended the undefeated streak! But will Kris regret putting it all on the line so soon? Or will she start her own incredible reign?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Mama Statlander holds onto her baby!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two tie up. The two are in a deadlock, but then they break. Kris shoves Nyla, they tie up again, and they go around. Nyla puts Kris in a corner, the ref counts, and Nyla lets off. Kris dodges the cheap shot to fire off forearms! Nyla dodges to get some air, but Kris SHOTGUNS Nyla down! Fans fire up, Kris is after Nyla but the scoop doesn’t work. Nyla scoops Kris but she slips free to scoop again! Nyla is still really big, and she scoops Kris to SLAM her! SENTON flops as Kris moves! Kris wraps on the body scissors! Nyla endures, those knee braces are right in the ribs!

Nyla scrambles, gets the ROPEBREAK, and Kris lets go. Kris storms up but Nyla shoulders into her! And bumps her off the buckles! Kris falls and Nyla stalks her. Nyla kicks Kris around, drags her up, and brings her over to ropes. Kris fights the suplex and tries to suplex Nyla! Nyla CLUBS Kris, CLAWS her back, but Kris fights with body shots! Fans rally and Kris still tries a suplex. Nyla knees low, brings Kris around, and snap suplexes her into buckles! We see Taya Valkyrie is watching backstage, surely upset that she didn’t get the TBS title off Jade. Nyla grins as she soaks up the heat and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla taunts Kris, drags her up, and then bumps her off buckles. Nyla stomps Kris, digs her boots in, but the ref counts. Nyla has Kris on the apron before she lets off. Nyla then puts Kris on the ropes to CHOKE and even bend back! Nyla puppets Kris’ mouth, but lets off as the ref counts. Kris flounders, Nyla brings her up to suplex! Cover, ONE!! Nyla grows frustrated, but she stands on Kris before getting a leg. HALF CRAB! Kris endures, reaches out, but Nyla talks trash while she CLUBS away on the knee! Kris crawls, ROPEBREAK! Nyla lets go, Kris goes to a corner, but Nyla RAMS into her!

Nyla pulls the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Nyla lets off and Kris hobbles to another corner. Nyla is after her in the corner with body shots! Nyla then goes corner to corner to ELBOW Kris, and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Kris down with a chinlock. Kris endures the knee in the back, fans rally up, and Kris fights, only for Nyla to CLUB her in the chest! Nyla clamps onto the arms to keep Kris down, but still Kris fights. Fans rally, kris throws body shots and elbows, but Nyla CHOP BLOCKS! Kris falls, Nyla gets that leg, and has a modified Half Crab! Kris endures, so Nyla stomps away on the leg before going back to the Crab!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Kris fights with her free leg. Nyla lets go, Kris kips up, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!! Kris is still in this but Nyla runs, only to miss the splash! Kris runs to DISCUS LARIAT! Nyla stays up to Kris LARIATS again, ROCKS Nyla and ROUNDHOUSES her! Fans fire up with Kris and she runs in at the corner, UPPERCUT! Kris goes side to side, KNEE! Nyla staggers, Kris brings her in, BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Kris is surprised! But Kris pounds the mat and fans rally with her. Kris drags Nyla to a drop zone and climbs up the corner.

Kris reaches the top but Nyla trips her up! Kris hits the buckles on the way down! Nyla runs in to SPLASH! Kris sits down, Nyla calls her shot and runs again, but Kris bails out! Nyla stops the cannonball to go tot he apron, CANNONBALL to the floor! Nyla grins and she brings Kris up to RAM her into railing! Fans boo but Nyla runs in to CANNONBALL against the railing! Nyla puts Kris back in the ring, stalks her, and catches Kris’ haymaker into a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kris survives and now Nyla is surprised! Nyla drags Kris up but Kris JAWBREAKERS! Kris puts Nyla in the drop zone and goes up again!

Fans fire up as Kris aims, to 450 SPLASH!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

The Galaxy’s Greatest has her first win as champion in the books! Taya is not amused, though. Will La Wera Loca get one more shot at that title? Will the third time be the charm? Or will things not go her way now that Mama’s home?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

It’ll be regularly scheduled, 10 PM Eastern on Friday night, but it’s gonna be a CHAMPIONSHIP Friday! The AAA Mega Championship is on the line as El Hijo Del Vikingo defends against Dralistico AND Komander in a Triple Threat! Will the numbers spell disaster for Vikingo in San Diego? And in her first defense, Willow Nightingale puts up the NJPW Strong Women’s Championship against The Queen of Joshi, Emi Sakura! Will the Babe with the Power be too sweet to be sour? Plus, the NJPW World Television Championship makes its AEW Rampage debut as Zack Sabre Jr. defends against Action Andretti!

But that’s not all! Assuming he defeats Alex Coughlin on ROH TV this week, Katsuyori Shibata will defend the ROH Pure Championship against #TAIGASTYLE, Lee Moriarty! Will The Wrestler still be the champion after this week is over?


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

Ricky Starks put out the challenge, and Jay White accepted! In a match where Juice Robinson and FTR are all banned from ringside, The Absolute and the Switchblade will finally settle things 1v1! Plus, after big wins from both men tonight, Orange Cassidy defends the AEW International Championship 1v1 against Swerve Strickland! Will the Mogul Embassy grab up even more gold?


Mixed Tag: Chris Jericho & Saraya VS Adam Cole & Britt Baker!

It would seem the Unsanctioned Match at Double or Nothing was not enough for anyone to end this! The Wizard & The Knight called out the Undisputed Couple for this match, and they obliged! Will Jericho & Saraya be the ones standing tall with a fireball? Or will San Diego be all about The Boom?

Fans sing Judas for Jericho, but Saraya still calls them all losers. The teams sort out and Jericho starts against Cole. Cole and Jericho fire off hands right at the bell! Jericho gets the edge, CHOPS, then CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Cole fires back, Jericho ROCKS him, then puts him in a corner, Jericho ROCKS Cole again and again, whips corner to corner, and Jericho clotheslines! Fans are torn but Saraya says they better cheer! Jericho goes back to Cole, but Cole turns things around to ROCK Jericho with forearm after forearm, then he CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS, Cole CHOPS, they CHOP back and forth!

Jericho gets the edge with those CHOPS, but Cole rakes the eyes! Saraya complains but Cole stalks Jericho. Cole stomps Jericho, digs a boot in, but lets off as the ref counts. Jericho pokes Cole in the eyes! Jericho then throws Cole out, goes out after him, and fans fire up as Jericho whips Cole into railing! Jericho puts Cole back in, stalks him to a corner and CHOPS again! Jericho whips, Cole comes back and he CLOBBERS Jericho! Jericho hurries away, Cole dares him to come back, but Jericho tags out to Saraya. Saraya dares Cole to do something, but fans fire up as Britt steps in! And she fires off on Saraya!

Saraya shoves, Britt dodges and SLINGBLADES! And NORTHERN LIGHTS! Cover, TWO! Britt CLUBS Saraya, brings her up to Alabama Lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Britt revels in the cheers and spells it out, “D! M! D!” Britt then sits Saraya up, runs, but Saraya distracts the ref so Jericho can trip Britt! Fans boo but Cole rushes Jericho! Saraya stomps Britt, the ref keeps Cole from getting at Jericho, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Saraya covers Britt, shouts at the ref, and the ref returns, TWO! Saraya drags Britt up to HEADBUTT her down! Saraya paces around Britt, drags her up, and throws her down. Saraya points to Jericho, they “tag,” and then Jericho eggs Britt on. The ref tells Jericho to get out, that’s not the kind of match this is. Saraya taunts Cole while Jericho exits, and Saraya stomps Britt. Saraya drags Britt around, puts her in the ropes, then goes to the apron to fire off knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off to step back inside and they argue. Jericho talks trash on Britt but she swipes at him! Cole protests but Saraya stomps Britt down.

Saraya drags Britt up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Saraya argues with the ref but the count was fair. Saraya drags Britt into a chinlock stretch but Britt endures. Fans rally, Britt fights up, but Saraya CLUBS her back down! Saraya brings Britt around, CLUBS her, then Saraya “tags” Jericho again. Jericho spells it out, “D! M! D!” then signals the fans can shove it! Saraya stomps Britt, Jericho shouts at Britt, and the ref keeps Cole back. Saraya stands on Britt’s hair, pulls on the arms, but lets off as the ref counts. Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya tosses Britt out. Saraya then goes out, Cole and Jericho shout at each other and the ref is distracted.

Saraya waves to the ramp, and out come the Outcasts! Ruby & Toni stomp away on Britt! Fans boo, Saraya drags Britt into the ring, and they get away with all of that! But HIKARU SHIDA is here! She SMACKS the Outcasts around with the kendo stick and fans fire up! Saraya is furious, but Britt rolls her up! TWO!! Saraya escapes and CLUBS Britt down! Jericho storms in and shouts at Britt, but Britt glares at him. Britt SLAPS Jericho, DECKS Saraya, and tags in Cole! Fans fire up as Cole rallies on Jericho with forearms! Cole whips, Jericho reverses but Cole CLOBBERS him! And ELBOW! And BOOT!

Cole rains down fists, just like at the end of their Unsanctioned match! Jericho pushes Cole away, CHOPS him, but, Cole PELES! Cole whips, Jericho holds ropes and avoids the dropkick! LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives but Jericho scrambles away, hot tag to Saraya! That allows Britt to run in and rally on Saraya! Fans fire up and Britt hits a NECKBREAKER!

Saraya hits low, whips, but Britt holds ropes to then reel Saraya in! Saraya wrenches out, HOOK KICK to the GOOD KNIGHT!! Cover, TWO?!?! Britt survives and shocks Saraya! Jericho has Floyd the Baseball Bat! He aims, swings, but Britt doges and Cole SUPERKICKS! Then Britt SUPERKICKS Saraya! Then they DOUBLE SUPEKRICK Jericho!! Fans are thunderous, Cole goes to the corner and Britt tags him in! Cole drops the kneepad, takes aim, “I told you!”

Jericho sits up, into the BOOM!! Cover, Cole & Britt win!

The Undisputed Couple stands tall! The power of love, but also just all that pent up frustration, wins out in the end, while Jericho throws a fit! Cole dares Jericho to keep fighting then! Jericho throws in a chair, and even the ring bell! Cole and Britt grab those for themselves, and that makes Jericho back off. Can Cole & Britt finally move on from The Wizard and his schemes to go get themselves some gold?

My Thoughts:

A very good aftermath show for AEW after only a very good Double or Nothing. Good promos from Kris Statlander, Wardlow and MJF to follow their title wins. A little surprising that Kris had her first defense so soon but I suppose this gets it out of the way, and it gets Kris going on doing her best to match Jade’s streak. Taya watching backstage makes some sense, and I sense her turning Heel over being denied twice. Sadly, I think Taya is going to go 0-3 for the TBS Champion, because if she didn’t beat Jade, she’s not going to beat the person who beat Jade. And I do appreciate that Wardlow is calling out Luchasaurus, he’s being a proactive champion.

MJF of course isn’t, he’s just expecting AEW to find somebody. But I feel like, with Tony Khan letting us know CM Punk IS returning, that’s just the natural course of things for the world title. AEW Collision’s success is not fully dependent on CM Punk being back, but it will definitely incentivize Chicago fans to show up. But I love that there were plenty of fans who hated that news as there were who loved it in San Diego. And MJF VS Punk is an obvious route given how the Pillars he cheated at Double or Nothing are now going to other stories in the meantime. Sammy was the only absent one, but he’s surely preparing to be a parent.

Darby & Cassidy had an awesome tag match with The Gates of Agony, and I figured Darby & Cassidy would win. Swerve also won an awesome Triple Threat against Bill and Trent, and of course Swerve is moving on to a title. I feel like Swerve should be the one to dethrone Cassidy. He’s got The Mogul Embassy to help him cheat so that technically keeps Cassidy strong, and then Swerve can bring that title into a feud with Darby or in whatever finish we FINALLY get of Swerve VS Keith Lee. Then Jungle Boy returns to teaming with Hook just because there’s no other singles title open. JungleHook VS LFI is still going to be fun, and maybe we get Jungle Boy VS Rush. But honestly, I almost thought JB was gonna turn on Hook there. Heel Jack Perry taking the FTW Championship could be pretty cool.

Great promo from Bullet Club Gold and then great brawl with FTR and Starks. Starks VS White is going to end things one way or another, but I feel like it has to be White’s win. Then BCG VS FTR can be for the AEW World Tag Team Championships going into All In London. Speaking of titles, Championship Rampage is loaded, though I’m surprised there wasn’t just another Battle of the Belts special. I wonder if Battle of the Belts goes away with Collision being on Saturdays. Pretty sure all champions retain, though, because NONE of those titles are AEW property. Also, I feel that’s irresponsible to automatically say it’s Shibata VS Moriarty when Shibata VS Coughlin is airing tomorrow night on ROH.

The Acclaimed had a good promo with Renee on stage, and I figured they’d stick together and try again. They’ll probably choose a Open House Rules stipulation next time, I look forward to something wild from them. Really good promo from The Outcasts, and Storm could face just about anyone in her first defense of the world title. From how things went in the main event, pretty sure it’s Shida since she is still fighting against The Outcasts. Britt & Cole of course win against Jericho & Saraya, but that was a pretty fun Mixed Tag. And if Shida doesn’t beat Storm, I bet we get Britt VS Storm at like All Out or something.

Great opener of BCC VS Lucha Bros & Bandido, and Bryan was pretty good on commentary. I figured BCC would win, they’re going to keep things rolling from Double or Nothing. And good promo from The Elite and Dark Order, because it kept up the continuity from over the years. Hangman saying Kenny was out of the country but not in Canada totally hints at him being in Japan to reconnect with Kota Ibushi, which is definitely the next phase of this.  Elite plus Ibushi VS BCC plus Konosuke, Blood & Guts, that has to be it. And speaking of, Callis and Konosuke had a great promo, especially factoring in that nuclear Heel heat Callis has. Like, every other Heel wishes they had the level of booing, jeering and middle fingers Callis had aimed at him.

My Score: 8.7/10
