Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Alex Marvez congratulates MJF, the New York Times has honored his by declaring his part in “Le Dinner Debonair” the Best Performance of 2020. Jericho wants to point out that not only did he create that, he was the costar. Yes, a great job, Christopher. But MJF says he’s back-to-back Dynamite Diamond Ring bearer and now the Best Performance of 2020. New York Times forgot one thing: he couldn’t have done it without CJ. And how dare people online say MJF is so much better than Jericho! Jericho is a mentor, the #GOAT, and honestly, a best friend. MJF couldn’t have done it without any of these “sexy hooligans.” Jericho congratulates MJF and MJF thanks him for it. Will they and all the Inner Circle have the best group performance in that titanic twelve man tag match?


AEW sees how the holidays are going at the Nightmare Family home.

Brandi and Cody Rhodes decorate the tree, but then someone rings their doorbell. They go to the door together, and someone has left a little present box for them. Cody picks it up, they sit and open it, and the sender is anonymous. But what was sent was a pair of Gucci baby booties! The Rhodes is expecting a baby in 2021! And Pharaoh is already training to be baby security! Congratulations to Cody and Brandi!


Cody Rhodes w/ Brandi Rhodes & Arn Anderson VS Angelico w/ Jack Evans!

And speaking of the American Nightmare, he is going to show he fears no giants nor big talk tough guys! Will the future father make his unborn child proud of him for fighting on? Or will the last of the true hybrids ruin this special moment for them?

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

The American Nightmare, the Prince of Pro-Wrestling, the Ace of AEW, and a big winner here tonight! But Team Taz has to ruin the fun by coming out. “It’s only the right thing to do right now, because congratulations are in order.” On behalf of the rest of the team, Taz congratulates Cody not for the match, but for being a daddy! “Oh~, he’s gonna be a daddy!” Ricky Starks says all this talk about being daddies, where were the congratulations for making Cody and “turtle boy” Darby Allin into Team Taz’s “sons?” Starks didn’t get a congrats, Cage didn’t get a congrats. But that’s just how it happens around here. But in regards to Darby, he will be minced meat at the hands of The Machine!

And Cody, here’s what’s happening now! Team Taz is going to put you on paternity leave! But wait! The crow! The snow! “It’s STIIIIING!” The Icon has his iconic bat, but Powerhouse Hobbs wants right after him! The rest of Team Taz has Hobbs reconsider, and they all retreat to the back. Darby and Sting stare down from all this far away, and then Sting gives a parting wink to Cody. Is Sting being a shadowy guardian angel for the young guns of AEW?


AEW returns with a backstage interview with Miro!

The Best Man made sure Orange Cassidy did not win the Dynamite Diamond Ring, and then he hospitalized three members of the AEW security staff! For that, management is fining him $75,000 total, 25K for each! What does he have to say for himself? What problem does he have with Orange Cassidy? “Well, he simply doesn’t care.” It’s all about numbers, likes, subscriptions, and yet Cassidy doesn’t care about them! Now Miro gets fined? Miro feels Cassidy owes him that money. But next week is the holidays! There will be a huge announcement then, but Miro promises to break the internet again as he returns to AEW Dark to take on Sonny Kiss. And then for Dynamite, it will be the WEDDING DATE ANNOUNCEMENT for Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford!

But what about the people he put in the hospital?! It’s almost Christmas! “BAH HUMBUG!” It’s Miro’s birthday. Will Miro be made to feel remorse for what he’s done?


Eddie Kingston goes to the ring!

And the Mad King already has a mic to say, “Alright, boo, cheer my name, do whatever you want to do. Because at the end of the day, I don’t care about any of you!” That includes the wrestlers at ringside, the people at home, and the cameraman. But Kingston is here to address his enemies! “Ladies and gentlemen, I have a lot of enemies.” First, “the man upstairs,” because haha, Kingston’s still alive! Second, the guy he and The Fam took out! The Bastard, Pac, got hurt! He’s gone home again and is never coming back again! His career is DONE! Go ahead, boo, you trained seals.

Third, that “big goofy bastard,” Lance Archer! But speaking of, here he comes! And the Murderhawk Monster is right on Kingston with furious fists! The Butcher and the Blade hurry out to go after him but he holds them off. Archer runs, Kingston clamps on, and then Blade dodges for Butcher to throw hands! Blade comes back, he and Butcher stomp away, and then Kingston adds on! But here comes the LUCHA BROTHERS! Kingston dares them to do something, but they’re not alone! PAC IS BACK! That neck isn’t keeping him out after all! And then Archer gets up and it’s a 4v3 beating! Bunny Allie can only watch as Kingston is thrown out and then thrown into barriers!

Archer AND Pac mug Kingston against railing, while Fenix and Pentagon “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICK Butcher and the Blade! Then Pentagon goes to the apron to SUPERKICK Blade, and Fenix runs to FLY and TORNILLO them both down! Kingston ends up back in the ring but Archer choke grips! Pac BOOTS Kingston down and stomps away! But Archer says Kingston is HIS prey. Pac doesn’t care and he glares at Kingston. The Fam regroups and retreats while Pac and Archer argue this out. But enemies of one’s enemies are your friends, so will Archer and Pac have a loose alliance for the sake of crushing Kingston?


Dasha Fuentes interviews Dustin Rhodes.

Has he thought at all about the offer issued by The Dark Order? He has. “Seven was a bad idea years ago, and Seven was a bad idea last week.” Dustin makes it clear to Evil Uno that Uno said Dustin is the “third least important person in the Rhodes family,” but that is WRONG! Dustin told Uno like he told Number 10, the Dark Order will all fall, one by one by one! Next week, Uno is next! Holiday Bash, Dustin fixes to kick some ass!

Wardlow could not make the trip but this is still a massive 6v6 match! Orange Cassidy watches on commentary now as his Best Friends and his good friends all battle Chris Jericho, MJF and their friends! Which faction of friends wins this massive match before the holidays?

AEW returns as Team Best Friends has gathered, and as the Inner Circle makes their entrance. Jericho enjoys fans singing Judas for him, and then the teams sort out.

Dante goes up and over and tags in Darrius, rolls off Sammy’s back and catches Sammy to trip for Darrius’ ghost pin! ONE, and Darrius BUZZSAWS! Cover, and Ortiz breaks it! Both teams shout at each other for breaking rules, but Darrius ROCKS Sammy with a European Uppercut!

Darrius ROCKS Sammy, tags Dante in and they hand-off the wristlock. Sammy wrenches back but Dante rolls and handsprings to break free, but Sammy DECKS him! Sammy drags Dante over, tags in Santana, but Dante tags in Trent! Santana is finally back from that brutal backlot brawl and he stares Trent down!

Alex Marvez interviews Thunder Rosa backstage.

We’ve all seen her attack Britt Baker, but Rosa wants to address “The Face of the AEW Women’s Division” herself. “The Role Model, the Dentist,” Britt tells Rosa doesn’t belong in AEW. But Rosa has been wrestling all over the world while Britt stuck her big nose in that NWA Women’s World Championship match! It is Britt’s fault Rosa lost! So they want to ask Rosa why now she is beating Britt’s ass? Maybe because Rosa does belong! For Britt to have the BALLS to say otherwise, Rosa laughs!

Rebel storms over and says one, that is a horrible laugh (Rebel would know) and two, don’t ever talk like that about The Dentist! Rosa will say whatever she wants. But then Britt CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! “Oh, I thought my ‘big nose’ smelled an unwanted guest!” Britt says Rosa is not welcome here! And she puts Rosa in the Rings of Saturn! Rebel pours water on Rosa’s face so they can smear her face paint! Britt pushes Rosa down and asks if the camera still works. Maybe Rosa’s ugly face broke it! Britt wants to prove she’s the Baddest Bitch in AEW, but she may have just pissed off the baddest bitch in NWA! When will these two finally collide 1v1 in the ring?


The Acclaimed VS SoCal Uncensored!

Max Caster and Anthony Bowens have been blazing up the AEW Tag Division ranks, but they still need to prove they’re better than one of the most experienced teams in wrestling today! What Platinum level diss rap will Caster have when AEW returns from break?

AEW returns and Bowens has the 5 Tool Player Boombox from Dark so Caster can feel the beat! “Yo, yo yo! We about to beat S C U! Leave ’em looking like a victim on S V U! Yo, Chris Daniels, nothing but a doormat. Call him CD, you’re an outdated format! Yo, what up, Kazarian? How’s your back doin’? You been doin’ all the carryin’! Nice hair, but my hair’s cooler. I heard you got hair plugs! Well do ya?!” The Young Bucks are ringside, and they are not feeling it. Wait, Kazarian gets the mic? He isn’t as confident in his battle rap abilities, but even he can do better! UH OH!

“Yo! I hope you dudes wrestle better than you rap. Because what I heard and they heard sounded like CRAP! You got your fake gold chains and you’re out here dissin’? Are you The Acclaimed or are you Man on a Mission? You tryin’ to drop rhymes, trying to make hits, but just like the year 2020, that whole thing was the shits!” Bowens tries to keep Caster calm but Kaz isn’t done! “Listen, green boys, I’m a give you a pass.

Yo, I think that you should duck. Shootin’ on you losers, I don’t give a WHOA~!” Can’t go there.

But Bowens tells AEW that the Acclaimed has arrived! And Bucks, if you’ve got the balls, next week for the Holiday Bash, they’ll put the tag titles on the line! “And that’s a mic drop!” The Bucks look ready to have that match if just to shut The Acclaimed up! But will the Bucks still have the gold come Christmas?


Dasha Fuentes interviews Top Flight.

Why did Darrius and Dante specifically save Griff from Jericho and MJF at the end of their 12 man tag match? They want us to focus on the two names just mentioned. Jericho, first ballot hall of famer. MJF, AEW’s hottest, youngest star. Er, well, that was until AEW signed Top Flight. True. Top Flight knows all about those two whereas Jericho and MJF didn’t know much about them. But now they do! In fact, maybe Top Flight hit them so hard they’ve already forgotten. This is Darius and Dante, the coldest tag team in the game! And to make sure they never forget, Top Flight challenges Jericho and MJF to a 2v2 tag match for Dynamite! Accept, “or run away like two little bitches.” Which will it be?


Big Swole & Serena Deeb VS Ivelisse & Diamante!

When Brandi Rhodes was in trouble, Big Swole and the NWA Women’s World Champion came to help. When Red Velvet was in trouble, they did the same. However, La Sicaria and the Cuban Diamond decided to get after them at that same moment! Now Swole and Serena face the AEW Women’s Tag Cup winners 2v2, will Brandi and Velvet be avenged?

The teams sort out and Deeb starts with Ivelisse. They circle, tie up, and go around. Ivelisse throws Deeb down but Deeb gets up fast. They circle and tie up again, and Deeb puts Ivelisse in an open corner. The ref backs Deeb off but Ivelisse sucker punches! Ivelisse whips but Deeb ducks and dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! Deeb bumps Ivelisse off buckles, tags in Swole, and Swole brings Ivelisse around for a big uppercut, only for Ivelisse to spin through it. Tag to Diamante, Diamante and Swole tie up and Diamante gets around to club Swole. Swole blocks a kick, spins Diamante and hits a backbreaker!

Swole headlocks, Diamante powers out and but Swole comes back to get around and shove Diamante. Swole back drops Diamante hard, then hurries to keep her from Ivelisse. Diamante hits back and throws Swole down by her hair! Dismante DECKS Deeb then goes after Swole. The ref is busy with Deeb, Swole gets put in the ropes and Ivelisse hits a hotshot to Diamante’s GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, ONE!? Diamante drags Swole up, clubs her then tags Ivelisse in. They mug Swole while AEW goes picture in picture, and then hit a double suplex! Cover, TWO!

Ivelisse clubs Swole, drags her around into a chinlock and wraps on tight. Swole endures as fans rally up, and Swole fights up to fight out! Ivelisse CLUBS Swole, facelocks again, and hits a TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Swole survives and Ivelisse is frustrated, but she drags Swole up to bump her off buckles. Ivelisse CHOPS Swole, tags Diamante and Diamante CHOPS Swole, too! Diamante fires off haymakers and stomps, then digs her boot in! The ref reprimands but Diamante drags Swole up with a cravat to snapmare and KICK! Cover, TWO! Diamante keeps Swole from Deeb with a headlock but Swole throws body shots. Diamante CLUBS Swole down then rains down fists as AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Deeb is in! She rallies on the tag cup winners as she scoop slams Ivelisse then CLOBBERS Diamante! Deeb drop toeholds Ivelisse and gets the legs for a deathlock! Diamante runs in but Deep kicks her, to suplex Diamante while hitting the SNAP LOCK on Ivelisse! Fans fire up as Deeb has Diamante and throws uppercuts! Deeb whips, Diamante kicks but gets caught to a DRAGON SCREW! Ivelisse kicks Deeb and whips her, but Deeb slips out and Ivelisse only gets buckles! Deeb catches Ivelisse in the ropes with the facelock, and then hotshot neckbreakers!

Fans fire up more as Deeb fireman’s carries Ivelisse, for a GUT BUSTER! Deeb steps through to a FIGURE FOUR! Ivelisse endures and rolls to ropes, tag to Diamante! Diamante stomps Deeb down then throws haymakers! Ivelisse comes back, she and Diamante double KNEE Deeb, then lift her for a double SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Deeb survives and shocks Diamante! Fans rally as Deeb rises, but Diamanate drags her up, only for Deeb to hit a SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Hot tag to Swole! Swole gets in and fires off forearms and CHOPS on Diamante! Swole spins, ducks under Diamante’s clothesline, and ripcords for DIRTY- NO! Diamante ducks, and Ivelisse grabs hair!

Swole DECKS Ivelisse, runs at Diamante but into a cravat and KNEE! Diamante tries Sliced Bread but Swole denies that with a shove, and a HEADBUTT! Swole reels Diamante in, underhooks, and TIGER DRIVERS! To the CLEARWATER CLOVERLEAF! Deeb intercepts Ivelisse with a GUILLOTINE! Diamante taps, Swole and Deeb win!

Winners: Serena Deeb & Big Swole, by submission

The World Tag Cup winners can’t believe they lost to two singles wrestlers! But the Vicious Vixens rush out!? Nyla Rose CLOBBERS Deeb, and Ivelisse goes after Swole! Vickie Guerrero even gets some stomps in! This is 4v2 but here comes RED VELVET with a chair! She SMACKS Nyla, then chases off Ivelisse and Diamante! Have the Vicious Vixens only stirred up Velvet’s vicious side?


Best Friends speak backstage.

“Santana and Ortiz. Fellas, this will never be over between us.” But right now, there are more important things to attend to. Miro sabotaged Cassidy’s match! You ruined Cassidy’s life! But Miro is going to use the Holiday Bash to announce Kip’s and Penelope’s wedding date? Well the Best Friends are so excited, because they’ll be at the Holiday Bash! They’re festive as hell! Trent and Chuck can’t wait. Will Miro regret publicly announcing the coming public announcement?


AEW has big matches for the Holiday Bash!

Not only will there be the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Young Bucks VS The Acclaimed, and the grudge match of Top Flight VS Jericho & MJF, but there will be a Six Man Tag! Jurassic Express will be in full as they take on The Dark Order’s Alan Angels, Preston Vance and even Colt Cabana! Will Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt and Luchasaurus keep on track towards their own tag title opportunity?

Plus, Hikaru Shida will be back in action, will she finally get to face her fears in the form of Abadon? And as Dustin Rhodes put forward, he is facing Evil Uno to check him off the list! Then, after the shocking return and the chaotic encounter, The Bastard, PAC, is back in action against The Butcher! Will Pac make sure Eddie Kingston understands what’s coming for The Fam?


FTR barges in and gets on commentary.

Cash Wheeler asks if anyone knows what’s happened to the AEW Tag Division. Is it an afterthought already? Because why are they highlighting a sideshow attraction when you have the “heart and soul” of the division right here?! Dax Harwood says he understands how television time ain’t cheap. But if FTR, the greatest tag team of a generation, the first-ever GRAND SLAM Tag Team Champions, Pro-Wrestling Illustrated’s NUMBER ONE team of 2020, is being pushed to the side for a fake-ass Tarzan and a grown-man in a dinosaur costume, that doesn’t sit right! This is how they feed their families! If you threaten that in any way, they will eliminate that threat! Jurassic Express, you are in the crosshairs of FTR! #FearTheRevelation!!


No Holds Barred: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Joey Janela w/ Sonny Kiss!

There is a lot of history to this match right here! First off, the Unsanctioned Match the Best Bout Machine and the Bad Boy had on AEW Dark! Second, Janela not being able to participate in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament! But now, The Cleaner must face Janela again in a No Disqualifications, ANYTHING GOES main event! Will Janela make up for both losses and missed opportunities?

AEW returns and we see the entrance of “The man who has held the AEW World title for 14 days. He is the only AEW wrestler to pin Jon Moxley. He helped draw AEW’s largest television rating of the year on last week’s Dynamite. He appeared on last week’s episode of Impact Wrestling, which by no coincidence, increased their audience by 33%. He is so talented, that he appeared last Saturday night in two countries, on two major shows which were available to watch all around the world, including but not limited to NOOORTH CAROLINA~! He is the All Elite Wrestling Woooooorld Champion… KENNY, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEGAAAAA!”

There are more Sweepettes! Omega makes his entrance, with Don Callis not far behind, and then pyro! But then Janela throws a trash can at Kenny’s head! Janela SMACKS Omega with the can and Callis says commentary is laughing but they’re up to the task of calling an Omega match so he’s taking over! The bell rings, Janela throws Omega out then builds speed, to DIVE! Direct hit and Omega hits railing! Schiavone tells Callis to kiss his ass about taking his headset. Janela brings out chairs! He sets one up, whips Omega into more railing, and then sets up more chairs. Fans fire up with Janela as he goes over, but Omega KOTARO KRUSHERS Janela onto one of the chairs!

Omega gets back in the ring and wants to hear the Terminator drums! Fans boo but some do clap along. Omega runs and wrecks Janela with a dropkick! Callis uses his mic to just call commentary on his own now, of course hyping up Omega. Janela sits in the other chair, Omega runs and FLIES! Direct hit through the chair! Callis says no one does it like Omega! Omega brings out cookie trays, drags Janela up but Janela flounders down. Omega has the cookie sheet and he SMACKS Janela! Callis also mocks JR’s “BAH GAWD!” as he calls Omega hitting “this disgusting hardcore wrestler” Janela again!

Omega tells Kiss he’ll get some, too, if he doesn’t back off! Omega takes a spare mic and gives his own play by play! “I’ll show you just how easy this is!” Janela isn’t feeling so good, is he? Get up! And listen tot his audio. SMACK with the sheet! How did that feel for Omega? “IT FELT GREAT!” Omega puts a trash can on top of a post, and tells the ref to hold the mic. Omega goes up, gets his can, and then FULL METAL MOONSAULTS onto Janela! Cover, TWO!! Janela survives and Omega is furious! “Get up, Joey! Get up! By your little piggy tails!” Omega CHOPS Janela right back down!

Omega isn’t done and he point blank KNEES Janela down again. “What’s the matter, huh!?” Omega SMACKS Janela with the sheet again! And then he brings the crushed can and he puts it on Janela’s back. Omega goes to the apron and springboard DOUBLE STOMPS the can into Janela’s back! Omega drags Janela up as Callis says it’s time to hit the pay window. Electric Chair, fold, but Janela POISON-RANAS! Fans fire up for Janela as Omega and Callis are finally speechless! Kiss hurries to get something for Janela! It’s a TABLE! Anything goes, after all! Kiss sets the table up for Janela and Janela finds some other things from under the ring.

Janela drags Omega up to punch away at the ramp! He punches Omega onto the table, then climbs up the corner! Janela FLYING LEG DROPS Omega through the table!! Fans lose their minds as Janela drags Omega from the wreckage! Janela puts Omega in, climbs back up and MOONSAULTS but flops! Omega fires himself up to V-TRIGGER Janela! Then he runs to V-TRIGGER again! Janela is stiff as a board but Omega Electric Chair lifts him, for ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, Omega wins!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

No respect, no mercy, and no title opportunities for Janela! Omega holds his title up high and Callis says “All the haters that we had to listen to since that godforsaken tournament have been silenced! No more unanswered questions for the world champion!” But then Pac and the Lucha Brothers walk out on stage! “Oi, oi, Kenny! Me and you, Kenny, we have some unfinished business. But you see, I’m not here tonight to be selfish. Oh, no.” Death Triangle is here to address injustice. Look here at Rey Fenix. Think back to October. Fenix was also in that contender’s tournament, but he never lost. So please explain how exactly Omega is the rightful champion?

Callis asks “Pock” if he suddenly got some executive promotion while he and Omega were making history? If not, here’s a little lesson in the business. “Wrestlers don’t tell the world champion what to do!” Well Don, that’s where you’re wrong. They talked with Tony Khan, and the match has already been made! Whether Omega likes it or not, he will defend his title against Fenix! Omega is furious at the “nobody” making matches for his title! But another eliminator tournament “what if” will finally be answered! Will Omega still be champion for the holidays?

My Thoughts:

A very good episode to set up the holiday hat trick AEW is about to pull off. Between tonight and Being The Elite, Hangman and Dark Order interacting is a lot of fun, but I am surprised they didn’t win. #HardyParty definitely has their own story developing now that Matt is inexplicably turning Heel, not really sure what that is about. Dustin has a pretty good promo to send a message to Evil Uno, and that match should be good. Cody had a really good match with Angelico but of course Cody wins. And of course Team Taz shows up to cut a promo on Cody and Darby, and of course Sting shows up to counter them. Still thinking we get a Six Man of Cody, Darby & Sting VS Hobbs, Starks and Cage at some point.

Wardlow could not make it for “family matters,” hopefully that isn’t too serious but well wishes just in case. Even so, the resulting 12 man rather than 14 man was still a great match, and perhaps flowed just a bit better since it was three different tag teams on the Face side, with no odd man out in Brandon Cutler. Cassidy being on commentary not saying anything was a great touch, too. Of course the Inner Circle wins, but I like that Top Flight is stepping up to face MJF and Jericho. There could easily be a moment of dissention from MJF because of his ever growing ego, but I don’t think anything happens to turn things around from the “ultimatum” and the group’s decision to stay together.

I’m torn on how The Acclaimed VS SCU went down. Kaz giving back his own rap, burying Caster’s gimmick, was not how I would’ve liked that to go down. But I suppose The Acclaimed winning, with some cheap tactics at that, makes up for the rap battle “loss.” Caster calling out Bucks with a diss rap also worked out, and getting a tag title match already is pretty big. Obviously Bucks win but The Acclaimed being able to say they had a shot is what’s important. FTR had a great promo calling out Jurassic Express after the highlight reel, and I have a feeling they’re going to get involved in that Six Man Tag Jurassic Express has with The Dark Order to then set up their own match.

Rosa, Britt and Rebel had a good segment, that grudge match has to happen for one of the New Year’s Smash nights. Swole & Deeb VS Ivelisse & Diamante was a good match, and I’m surprised the Faces won in this situation given Ivelisse & Diamante are the tag cup winners. But I suppose it was just so Vicious Vixens could attack. I feel like Vickie is going to recruit Ivelisse & Diamante, and then Jade Cargill returns and we get that 8 Woman Tag where Brandi also returns. Shida being on Dark and then coming back next week, they’re taking a nice slow burn towards her next title match. It’s obviously going to be Abadon, and I bet it happens for one of the New Year’s Smash nights.

Omega VS Janela in the No Holds Barred was a great main event, though maybe with some points off for Callis droning on to put Omega over and then Omega getting in on the “commentary” himself. But that was still a good table spot from Janela. Omega of course wins, and I actually like that they’re continuing this idea of Omega facing the opponents he was meant to in the tournament. Omega VS Fenix is going to be great, as will be the continued feud of Pac, Archer and Eddie Kingston’s Fam. That was also a great segment, Pac VS Butcher will be fun, but I’m not sure the endgame if Archer and Pac are both here and going after Kingston.

My Score: 9.1/10

AEW Elevation Coverage

It’s a Superbad return!

Penelope Ford returns to action in AEW as Dark: Elevation serves the leftovers from Dynamite’s Quake by the Lake!


  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling VS Travis Titan & Arik Cannon; Nese & Woods win.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS T.U.G Cooper, Drew System, Rylie Jackson & Adam Grace; The Dark Order wins.
  • Serena Deeb VS Sierra; Deeb wins.

  • Julia Hart VS Free-Range Kara; Julia wins.
  • Private Party VS JAH-C & JDX; Private Party wins.
  • Penelope Ford VS Heather Reckless; Ford wins.
  • The Acclaimed VS Justin Fowler & JT Energy; The Acclaimed win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida & ThunderStorm VS Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero; Shida & ThunderStorm win.


Great to see Penelope Ford is back in action. I wonder if Kip Sabian will make his in-ring return soon. Unless he wants to keep stalking Pac a little longer as the box man… Private Party is going to get a win as the warm-up for their AEW World Tag Team Championship match this Wednesday, and pretty much the entirety of The Dark Order is in action in that 8 Man Tag. Konosuke VS Bononi is going to be really good. Bononi is certainly the biggest opponent physically speaking for Konosuke to take on, so we’ll get to see how Konosuke handles that situation.

Mitchell’s AEW Rampage Results & Report! (8/12/22)

AEW Quake

  • AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championships: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo VS Dante Martin & Skye Blue; Sammy & Tay win and retain the titles.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss; Boudreaux wins.

Bryan Danielson is here!

The American Dragon is back and Minneapolis is fired up to see him! Bryan goes to the ring and Tony Schiavone is there waiting for him to say we can all tell Bryan is here with purpose. So first, there is speculation that after the loss to Daniel Garcia, Bryan is not 100%. Second, Garcia has said he is the “Dragonslayer,” and he will not only defeat Bryan but end his career. Bryan takes the mic to say, “To be honest, I’ve been wrestling almost 23 years, I don’t know if I will ever be 100%. But I don’t need to be 100%, I need to live 100%! And there is nothing that makes me feel more alive than being in this ring!”

Fans cheer that and Bryan continues to say, “I will never willfully stop wrestling. Daniel Garcia said if I get in the ring with him, he’ll slay the dragon, end my career. Do you know what? Someone is gonna have to damn end my career because I am not going to end this ring on my own. But my career will not end this Wednesday!” But then Garcia is on stage and telling Bryan to “hold up, hold up, hold up. Bryan, it’s no secret that Bryan Danielson is my hero! You’re my hero, Bryan! But it sounds like to me that my hero is prepared to lose. It sounds like to me that my hero is coming up with excuses.” Fans boo that as Garcia gets in the ring.

Garcia says that he isn’t sure how many times he can put up with this! Bryan retires, then comes back, then retires again, then comes back again. Bryan can’t keep putting Garcia through this, it hurts Garcia. Garcia says when Bryan hurts Garcia, Garcia wants to hurt Bryan back. And when you step in the ring with Garcia again, Garcia will hurt him so bad, that he ends Bryan’s career for good! And then he won’t just be the Dragonslayer, he’ll be the Greatest Technical Sports Entertainer on the Planet.

Fans boo and Bryan responds with, “I’m okay with people saying they’re gonna end my career. Ever since I came to AEW, I’ve been talking about violence. I love violence, and violence begets violence. But do you know what really pisses me off? It’s that sports entertainment BS!” Fans cheer for that! Bryan knows what Chris Jericho’s been shoving down Garcia’s throat, and it IS that sports entertainment crap! Do you all know that this kid, Daniel Garcia, was one of the first names Bryan mentioned when talking about starting the Blackpool Combat Club? And why? Because Bryan saw Garcia at 21 years old go 60 MINUTES in front of 250 people, showing them the best wrestling Bryan’s seen in a young talent in YEARS!

So let Bryan ask Garcia, and he wants Garcia to think about it all the way to Wednesday, when Bryan’s stomping Garcia’s face in! “Do you wanna be the Best Technical Sports Entertainer on the Planet? Or, or… Look at me when I talk to you!” Bryan even grabs Garcia’s face to keep him looking forward! “If I was your hero, do you want to be the Best Technical Wrestler in the world? And I’ll leave that up to you.” Bryan drops the mic and leaves Garcia to mull that over. What path will Garcia choose while his career is still young?


AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championships: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo VS Dante Martin & Skye Blue!

Another young protégé of Chris Jericho, and his blushing new bride, are back in action! And for the first time in AEW, they defend the belts that signify their bond! But will the Spanish God and his Brazilian Goddess celebrate a title win on top of their marriage? Or will Angel Dorado & Cielo Azul prove that for once, love doesn’t conquer all?

The introductions are made, the matching red ‘n’ blue belts are raised, and we see if the hometown hero of Minneapolis and the girl next door can win the big one!

The teams sort out, and Skye insists that it’s ladies first. Tay and Sammy kiss for luck, but Dante tells Sammy to leave that stuff backstage. Sammy shoves Dante down! So Skye fires off on Tay! And Dante TACKLES Sammy! The fans fire up as the scraps continue, and the ladies spill out of the ring! Dante TACKLES Sammy again, so it seems the gentlemen are starting instead! Tay RAMS Skye into the railing, Sammy shoves Dante again but Dante trips Sammy up! Dante rains down more forearms while fans fire up for the 612! Sammy gets up and KNEES Dante, then soaks up the heat. Sammy CHOPS Dante against ropes, then whips him to ropes.

Dante reverses, knees and CHOPS Sammy in return, then ROCKS and CHOPS him again. Dante whips Sammy to ropes, Tay catches Sammy to stop him then tags in. Skye is to come in automatically, but she tags to climb up and CROSSBODY! Skye then gets around but Tay throws her off with the judo hip toss. Skye shoves Tay so Tay SLAPS Skye! Skye smirks and SLAPS back! And then fires off fast hands! Fans fire up but Tay trips Skye! Tay steps through, rolls and uses the leg lock to THROW Skye! Tay steps over into a modified STF, and she chinbars Skye into an almost Bow ‘n’ Arrow style stretch! Skye endures, scoots but Tay makes it a cover, ONE!

Skye has a cover, ONE! Skye ROCKS Tay, whips her to ropes, and fans rally. Tay holds ropes but Skye SHINING WIZARDS! And SHINING WIZARDS again! Tay shoves Skye, Skye dodges and mule kicks a leg! Tay blocks the superkick but now the DRAGON WHIP! Fans fire up and Skye runs, but Sammy swipes at her! The ref reprimands, but Tay BOOTS Skye down! Fans boo SamTay while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Tay stomps Skye, covers her, TWO! Tay is frustrated and she talks trash on Dante. Tay stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Tay lets off at 4, and then she drags Skye up to whip her into a DROP SAYANAGI! And then another! And another, but Skye blocks to a cradle! TWO, and Tay ROCKS Skye! Tay kicks Skye around, drags her up, and she kisses Sammy. That’s not a tag so Tay CLUBS away on Skye. Tay cravats to throw knee after knee into Skye, and then whips her into a neutral corner. Tay runs in and BOOTS Skye! Tay runs in again but Skye dodges the boot to roll Tay up, with a bridge, TWO!!

Rampage returns to single picture and Tay grabs a leg, but Skye ENZIGURIS Tay down! Fans fire up as Skye crawls, hot tag to Dante! That brings Sammy in, but Dante fakes him out into a TACKLE! Dante rains down fists, Sammy shoves him away but Dante rallies with forearm smashes! Dante then ducks a haymaker to DROPKICK Sammy out! Minneapolis fires up and Dante takes aim. Tay runs in but Dante goes up and over her! Dante DIVES and takes out Sammy! Fans fire up as Dante puts Sammy in fast. Dante slides in but Tay anchors a foot! The ref reprimands, Dante drags Tay into the ring with that foot, and Sammy grabs Dante!

Sammy clinches but Dante breaks free. Dante kicks, Sammy blocks and flips Dante, over Tay! Dante then uses Tay as a step to hit a DESTROYER on Sammy!! Sammy flops down, Dante covers, TWO!! Sammy survives and Dante can’t believe it! “This is Awesome!” and Dante drags Sammy up. Sammy KNEES Dante back, torture racks, but Dante slips off! Skye tags in, Dante gets Sammy in a half nelson! Sammy elbows free, Tay tilt-o-whirl DDTs Dante! But Skye FLYING RANAS Sammy! The ladies cleared the ring, Tay SUPERKICKS and hooks Skye, TAY K O!! Cover, SamTay win!

Winners: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo, by pinfall (still AAA World Mixed Tag Team Champions)

There was a lot of fire in the hearts of Dante & Skye, but not enough to burn down Sammy & Tay. Will Mr. & Mrs. Champion continue to reign on everyone’s parade?


The Lucha Brothers speak.

Rey Fenix says, “After a long road, the Lucha Brothers are coming back for gold.” Penta, with Alex Abrahantes translating, tells Andrade and the world, “This hasn’t finished. But next week, the All-Atlantic Champion returns, and Death Triangle will be reunited and will fight for the Trios Championships.” The Bastard, Pac, is returning from his European tour, will he, Penta & Fenix be ready for The United Empire’s Aussie Open and Will Ospreay in the opening round?


Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss!

Ari Daivari recruited this brutal blue chipper to the group, knowing this would be a very wise investment. Will Parker pay off right away? Or will the Concrete Rose prove not to judge a book by its cover?

The bell rings and Parker CLOBBERS Kiss! Kiss flounders, Parker drags him up with a facelock and CLUBS away on the corner! Parker lets off as the ref counts and runs in, but Kiss dodges the splash! Kiss ROCKS Parker, then runs to handspring and SLAP! And uppercut! But Parker grabs Kiss by the neck, for a CHOKE SLAM! Parker snarls and drags Kiss up to a back suplex SLAM!! Cover, Parker wins!

Winner: Parker Boudreaux, by pinfall

Slim J is pumped for Parker but Parker just looks hungry for more. Will the Trustbusters eat well when the Trios Championship begins?


La Faccion Ingobernable meets with the former Andrade Family Office.

Andrade formally introduces Rush to Butcher, Blade and Private Party. Rush doesn’t like Private Party. But Andrade says it’s fine! The LFI will win those Trios Championships, unlike Private Party against Keith Lee. Jose even adds that was embarrassing. Isiah Kassidy tells Jose to shut up, and he tells El Idolo that people like him have been sleeping on Private Party for a very long time. But that’s fine, because it all changes. Private Party will wake Andrade up. Well good, maybe Private Party can get this group those world tag titles. Upper management leaves, will Kassidy & Quen redeem themselves in the eyes of the ungovernables?


Beardhausen VS Gunn Club!

Erick Redbeard returns to AEW alongside the Very Nice, Very Evil Danhausen to teach these Ass Boys something! Not quite sure what, but will Danhausen & Erick put a curse on the Gunn Club? Or can Austin & Colten redeem themselves after losing in the Dumpster Match?

The teams sort out and Erick starts against Colten. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS! ASS~ BOYS!” Colten shrugs that off to tie up with Erick, and Erick shoves Colten down! Fans fire up but Austin tags in. Austin steps to Erick now, but then decides not. Psych! Austin rushes in, but Erick runs him over! The boys bail out and regroup and Billy asks what the hecc! Billy tells Austin to get in there, but then Danhausen tags in! Fans fire up as Danhausen flexes on Austin. He powers up and… CURSES Austin! But Austin DECKS Danhausen! So no hex? Austin bumps Danhausen off buckles as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Austin tags Colten, Colten bumps Danhausen off more buckles then stomps away. Colten whips corner to corner, runs in, but Danhausen boots him away! Danhausen goes up, reels Colten in, and puts him in the ROPE BUTTERFLY! Austin protests but that only means Colten suffers longer! The ref counts, Danhausen lets go at 4, and then he slingshots up to the top! But while the ref is checking on Colten, Austin sucker punches Danhausen! Colten then DROPKICKS Danhausen down! Colten soaks up the heat, drags Danhausen up and brings him around to bump off buckles. Colten stomps Danhausen, the ref counts, and he lets off at 4.

Colten taunts Erick but then backs off as Erick steps in. Colten bumps Danhausen off buckles, tags Austin in, but Danhausen fights back! He fires off haymakers on Austin, but Austin kicks low! Austin ROCKS Danhausen, taunts the fans, and Billy taunts Danhausen with an Orange Cassidy thumbs up. Austin drags Danhausen up to stomp away in the corner, then lets off as the ref counts. The ref reprimands Austin but misses Colten CHOKING Danhausen! Colten CLUBS Danhausen then tells fans they saw nothing! Austin stomps Danhausen, drags him up, and brings him around as Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Austin has Danhausen in a headlock. Fans rally up and Danhausen slips away! Austin rushes after him but Danhausen slips under! And then under again, hot tag to Erick! Redbeard rallies on the Gunn Clubs, BOOT for Austin, DROPKICK for Colten! Then a SPLASH and TOSS for Colten, then he runs at Austin, Austin BOOTS Erick, but Erick TOSSES Austin out onto Colten! Erick goes out now and runs in to CROSSBODY both Ass Boys! Fans fire up as Erick puts Austin in and fans rally up for the slingshot senton! Shoutout to Brodie Lee! Then a HEEL KICK! Cover, Colten breaks it!

Fans boo as Colten hammers away on Erick! Colten rags Erick up, Austin joins in, but Erick fights the double suplex to DOUBLE SUPLEX Gunn Club! Fans are thunderous, and Danhausen wants back in! Tag and Danhausen is in! Erick drags Austin up for him, Danhausen hooks Austin up, and Erick runs! But Colten distracts the ref and Billy dumps Erick out! Fans boo and Austin turns things around into a FAMOUSER! Cover, Gunn Club wins!!

Winners: Gunn Club, by pinfall

Big assist from Daddy Ass, and yet Billy gets the mic to say, “Oh my God, are you kidding me? Really, that’s what you’re giving us? No wonder they call you Ass Boys, and no wonder I miss The Acclaimed.” Ouch… Billy means that the guys need to toughen up a bit. A lot of bit! They sure ain’t doing what he’s taught them, that’s a fact! But that’s okay, on Dynamite, they’ve got another match to prove themselves with. But who is it? Billy doesn’t say, will Austin & Colten just have to tough it out? Wait, Stokely Hathaway is in the crowd, offering his business card again. Austin & Colten don’t accept, and they follow after Billy.


Backstage interview with Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, Swerve in Our Glory. Earlier, Andrade made it clear that he wants Private Party to go after the titles. Now, Keith Lee has history with them, but what makes the tag title match different? Keith chuckles and says, “Listen. I got here, Mr. Kassidy was a challenger, and I dismantled him. His friend, Quen, jumps in, I dismantle him. I don’t know if this makes sense, but if you didn’t have a chance against me, what makes you think you have a chance against us? Please, do the math.”

Swerve admits math wasn’t his best subject, when it came to counting money! But um, he added up Private Party’s losses, subtracted their wins, and carried the one, and the still don’t add up to a top five ranking team! So they will allow Private Party to be grace the champs with their presence, since no ranked team wants to, and they can #SwerveInOurGlory. Whose house? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Will Quen & Kassidy take advantage of this gracious opportunity? Or will they be of further disappointment to El Idolo.


HOOK is here!

Minneapolis fires up for the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil of a NEW FTW Champion! Hook goes to the ring, Schiavone is there, and Schiavone says there is no question that one of the most incredible debuts in AEW culminated with Hook becoming FTW Champion. As we understand it, this title is always in open challenge. Is that right, Hook? “Yup.” Okay. We’ve followed Hook’s career, short as it is still, and it has been tremendous. But wait! Out walks Zack Clayton! He introduces himself as “The Reality,” and he knows some recognize him from his reality TV superstardom in the great state of New Jersey!

Clayton tells Hook that he will take that FTW Championship from him, “you little wannabe tough guy New Yorker!” And Clayton will bring it to God’s Country, New Jersey, where it belongs! Hook nods and wave Clayton to bring it, but Clayton says no, he just got new boots made, they’re not ready it. And plus, being a Jersey guy, he does things on his terms. So how about we do this on next week’s Rampage? Hook holds up the belt to say sure thing! The match is made, will The Reality be the one getting a reality check against the Son of Taz?


Mark Henry speaks with tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man says Ari Daivari offered Orange Cassidy a spot in the Trustbusters, but what is it that Daivari sees in him? “Mark, Orange Cassidy is easily, hands down, one of the most talented professional wresters on the AEW roster. And now that my trust has officially kicked in, I am investing my hard earned money into the best talent around.” Look what he’s already down for Slim J and Parker Boudreaux! And Orange doesn’t wanna join that? He still wants to hang out with “those stupid goofs?” Hey, you don’t wanna join in, fine! They’ll do the next best thing, and Daivari will beat Orange’s ass in this old dump of a hometown, Minneapolis!

Wow. Well, uh, looks like there’s been enough talk. Orange, no, that’s Mark’s line. Oh. Well, it is true, though. It’s time for the main event! Will Cassidy give Quake by the Lake a Freshly Squeezed main event? Or will Daivari Dinero make that money?

Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends VS Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters!

The bell rings and fans rally for “Freshly Squeezed!” as he gives Best Friends his jacket and tie-dye shirt. Cassidy lifts up his hands but Daivari has him wait before putting them in his pockets. Daivari gets a mic and says, “I’m gonna give you one last chance to join the Trustbusters. All you have to do is lay down and let me pin you, then the four of us can get out of this sh*tty town.” Fans boo and Cassidy… nods?! Cassidy lies down and Daivari says he knew Cassidy was smarter than that. Cassidy is ready, Daivari takes a moment to decide what angle he’s coming in from, but then Cassidy rolls away!

Fans laugh and Cassidy tells Daivari to hurry up. Daivari goes to cover again but Cassidy rolls away again! Daivari is annoyed, he storms up but Cassidy rolls out of the ring. And then puts his hands up, to… Nope, Cassidy has to get in the ring as Daivari rushes out! Cassidy then rolls all the way to the far side and gets a GROUP HUG from Best Friends! Got to give the people what they want! But then Boudreaux and Slim J flank them! Chuck & Trent step to them, Daivari rushes out after Cassidy! Daivari puts Cassidy in but things speed up! Cassidy ducks, waistlocks, Daivari switches but Cassidy switches back.

Daivari switches again and he SLAMS Cassidy down! Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, goes for a leg, but then just puts his hands up. And he slips his hands inside the waistlock to put them in his pockets! Cassidy uses that to break free! And kangaroo kicks! Things speed up, Cassidy hurdles and SHOTGUNS Daivari down! Fans fire up as Cassidy kips up, and then he blocks Daivari’s kick! It was headed a little low and Daivari apologizes, but Cassidy shoves Daivari to a corner. Daivari goes up and out, Cassidy rushes in but into a shoulder! And then a DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Daivari grins and hugs it out with his team, NOT what the people want.

Daivari takes his time returning and Rampage goes picture in picture. Daivari drags Cassidy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Cassidy bounces off buckles. Daivari soaks up the heat from the fans and he stands Cassidy up. Daivari CHOPS Cassidy in the corner, follows him along the way to another corner, and then drags him up to whip corner to corner hard! Cassidy bounces off buckles again, and Daivari drags him back up. Daivari puts Cassidy in the ropes, CHOKES him, but lets off at 4. Slim J chokes Cassidy behind the ref’s back! Best Friends protest but the ref misses it all. Trent storms over but Slim J has Parker backing him up.

Daivari stomps Cassidy, then drags him up to turn him for a Neckbreaker Rack! Cassidy endures the stretch, pries at the hold, and fans rally up as Cassidy turns things back around! Daivari fights the backslide, but Cassidy fights it back. They struggle for control, Daivari swings Cassidy out for a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Daivari is annoyed, he slaps Cassidy around, and then drags him up to TOSS out of the ring! The ref watches Slim J and Parker, and Best Friends storm over to back them off. Daivari goes out to fetch Cassidy, and RAMS him into the apron! Daivari RAMS Cassidy into railing and soaks up the heat from the front row.

Daivari puts Cassidy in the ring, talks trash on Trent, then clamps onto Cassidy with a chinlock. Cassidy endures, pries at the hold, and fans rally as he works on the grip! Rampage returns to single picture as Cassidy has the hold open. Cassidy turns things around but Daivari turns them right back and shoves Cassidy to ropes! Daivari catches Cassidy to a SLEEPER, but Cassidy flails and reaches out! Cassidy is fading, and is turning red, but he gets the ROPEBREAK! Daivari SLAPS the arms off the ropes and puts the SLEEPER on again! Fans rally as Cassidy endures again, but the ref checks. The arm drops once! And then it drops twice!

But Cassidy gets his second wind, puts both hands up, and then puts them in his pockets! Cassidy RAMS Daivari into buckles, gets free and dodges a lariat, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide on the return! Fans rally up again as both men stir. A standing count starts and climbs, the Trustbusters and Best Friends coach their guys up. Cassidy gets to a corner and drags himself up while Daivari stands. Daivari runs in but only gets buckles! Cassidy runs in but gets put on the apron! Cassidy blocks a punch to bump Daivari and then climbs. Daivari CHOPS Cassidy, then CHPOS again!

Cover, TWO!! Daivari is furious but he drags Cassidy up. Daivari says Cassidy should’ve accepted the offer. Daivari hammerlocks the arm, but Cassidy arm-drags him away! Cassidy tilt-o-whirls and DDTs! Fans fire up and Cassidy goes up top, DEEP IMPACT!! Cover TWO!! Daivari survives two DDTs in a row but the armband comes off! Cassidy is fired up, Slim J gets on the apron! Chuck trips him up! Parker grabs Chuck and Trent!

Cassidy DIVES to take Parker out! Cassidy hurries back up but Daivari trips him up! Daivari crosses the arms, ICONOCLASM!! Cover, TWO!! Daivari is furious but he slashes his throat! He vows to end this with the hammerlock and LION- NO, Cassidy ducks then rolls Daivari up. ONE as Daivari rolls through, Cassidy ducks the superkick to ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Cassidy wins!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Cassidy refused to sell out Slim J CLOBBERS Cassidy! But Best Friends TOSS Slim J out Only to turn around and get CLOBBERED by Parker! Parker SPLASHES Chuck in one corner, then SPLASHES Trent in the other, and roars! Fans boo but Orange is back up! And Sonny Kiss rushes out there! Kiss did just lose to Parker, so- Kiss LOW BLOWS Cassidy!?!? And then Parker gives Orange the SLAM!! Did Kiss just sell out to the Trustbusters!? Did that happen between now and that match earlier? Or was it all part of the plan?

My Thoughts:

A great episode to close out the first Quake by the Lake event, with some surprising developments here. While Parker Boudreaux didn’t really change his moveset up from when he was Harland in NXT, he of course wins here tonight in a squash. Then we got an awesome main event out of Cassidy VS Daivari, even with Best Friends and the Trustbusters ringside. I was a touch surprised Cassidy won, but then that brawl at the end with Kiss swerving and turning Heel was a great way for Trustbusters to stand tall here. The go-home math is now a wash, but I would think Best Friends win to advance in the trios tournament.

Speaking of that tournament, great promo from the LFI and extended faction, as well as from Keith & Swerve. A title match between Keith & Swerve VS Private Party is going to be awesome, but I would think the champions retain the titles. Private Party going after LFI would be great to turn Private Party Face. Good promo from Lucha Bros to hype up their Trios Championship tournament match, and I would think Death Triangle beats The United Empire, pinning one of Aussie Open. And their promo implies that no matter who the third man is for the Young Bucks, LFI advances. AKA it’ll be Brandon Cutler because the Bucks have no one else, and he takes the pin.

Really fun match from Gunn Club and Beardhausen, but rather surprising that Gunn Club won. Billy is really ripping into his own sons, I have a feeling he just pushes them into joining Stokely’s stable. Stokely’s got Ethan Page, he’s got Lee Moriarty, he needs a tag team before can start taking over AEW properly, and it could be Gunn Club. Great promo segment from Hook and Zack Clayton, and this is a great opportunity for Clayton to move up in the world. The Mixed Tag Championship match was a great opening match, and while Dante & Skye looked great, I figured SamTay would win to retain.

And we got a great promo from Bryan and Garcia to open the whole show, and I am so happy Bryan is taking this story the way I was hoping. Daniel Garcia is definitely more a BCC guy than a JAS guy, so I hope the best two outta three falls match starts getting Garcia to consider his position in the feud. There’s a lot that Garcia can bring into the BCC, from both a moment of dysfunction since he battled Yuta for the ROH Pure Championship and was insufferable to the other BCC members, to more fire in the faction because they can get even more titles now. I can’t wait to see where this goes next.

My Score: 8.7/10
