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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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?
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

PLAY BY PLAY
Jon Moxley is here!
The Maniac came dangerously close to annihilating Lord William Regal last week given how angry he was over the Full Gear screwjob. And that anger hasn’t exactly lessened since. But as fans chant for him, he’s here tonight to say, “I grew up about 90 miles from here. When I first started, I used to wrestle here in Indianapolis all the time, down in the old Fountain Square at the Salvation Army Gym.” Fans cheer for that shoutout. “That was a long time ago. This has been a crazy ass ride. You never know what’s around the corner. But there are three constants in this world, three certainties: death; taxes; and Jon Moxley.” Fans also cheer that!
Moxley says “There is nobody that can outwork me, out hustle me, out wrestle me, out fight me, out bleed me or out sweat me! Today, nothing’s really changed. Nothing’s really changed since day one in AEW. I am at THE top of the food chain! I do what I want and I say what I want. This AEW ring belongs to me! And you can bet your ass there is not a man in that locker room, there isn’t a man in this building, there isn’t a man within 100 miles that has the balls to come out here, look me in the eyes and tell me any different.” But here comes HANGMAN! Adam Page is back and Indianapolis can’t believe it!
Hangman storms down to the ring, not yet cleared to compete but clearly not caring! And he gets right in the face with the man who concussed him in Moxley! Fans are ready for “COWBOY SH*T!” but Moxley smirks. “You sure you wanna do this, man, after what happened last time? Oh, I’m sorry. Do you not remember last time?” Hangman DECKS Moxley, proving he does! Hangman keeps after Moxley as they go outside the ring and he fires off! Moxley RAMS Hangman into railing but Hangman DECKS him again! Hangman wants after Moxley but security and referees rush out! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” and Moxley gets loose, only for Hangman to CLOBBER him!
Hangman rains down fists, Moxley gets back up, and Moxley dares Hangman to try that again. Hangman storms up and he DOES hit Moxley again! Fans are loving it but even MORE refs rush out to stop this! Fans still want to “Let Them Fight!” and Moxley breaks loose! Moxley takes a spill off the ramp, but he gets up again! They scrap, but the security and refs pile on top of them to smother this fight. Moxley goes out one tunnel, Hangman goes out the other, what will keep these two from fighting backstage!?
Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Bryan Danielson!
FTR acknowledged that they have had perhaps the best year possible as a tag team, but Dax the Ax wants to prove himself worthy against THE BEST WRESTLER in the world! The American Dragon accepted that challenge, and now we see if Dax is right. IS Bryan Danielson the best in the world? Or will Dax take that title and add it to his collection?
The bell rings and fans fire up already. Dax and Bryan circle, tie up, “This is Awesome!” already for Indy as the two break. Bryan and Dax circle, tie up again and Bryan headlocks and hits a takeover. Dax headscissors but Bryan moves around. Bryan headstands, turns Dax over, bridges and hooks the legs up.

Dax tries to let off but Bryan is the one holding on with a leg scissor. The ref reprimands them both, Bryan lets off but then kicks Dax under the chin! So Dax stomps Bryan in return! Bryan scrambles out of the ring while Dax checks his chin. Fans rally up and the ring count starts. Bryan stands on the apron and has Dax back up. Bryan steps in, he and Dax tie up, and Bryan puts Dax in the corner. Bryan CHOPS, but Dax turns things around to CHOP back!
Dax stands Bryan up to CHOP again! And UPPERCUT! Bryan turns things around to CHOP, and KICK, and CHOP, and KICK, repeat!

Dax hits the apron hard, Bryan builds speed to DIVE! Dax ends up in the front row! Fans fire up and Bryan drags Dax up. Bryan ROCKS Dax but Dax CHOPS!
Dax ROCKS Bryan but Bryan fights back, they’re brawling right in front of the fans as AEW goes picture in picture! Dax finds the corner of the railing but Bryan is on him! They throw haymakers and CHOPS, Dax ROCKS Bryan and suplexes him up and over the railing! They crash down right in front of more fans! Indy is loving having the action right at their feet, but the ref checks both men. Dax and Bryan stir, sit up, and Dax fist bumps fans as he returns to ringside. Bryan is slower to stand, crawls his way to the ring, and Dax goes out to meet him. Dax eggs Bryan on, goes back into the ring, and Bryan slowly gets to the apron.
The count is 5 of 10 but Bryan gets in. Dax storms up to Bryan and Bryan eggs him on. Dax ROCKS Bryan, brings him around and CHOPS! And then CHOPS again!

Dax runs in but Bryan BOOTS him back! Bryan ROCKS Dax with a forearm, CHOPS back, CHOPS more and more, then spins, into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Dax holds on as Dynamite returns to single picture, for another GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another!
Fans fire up with both men down on the mat. Dax stands up, climbs the corner, but Dax hops down to stalk Bryan. Dax drags Bryan up but Bryan switches. Dax switches, Bryan switches, repeat, but then Dax fakes Bryan out! Dax reels Bryan in but Bryan back drops the driver away! Dax makes that a sunset flip but Bryan rolls through, rolls Dax, and then ducks the haymaker. Dax ducks the roundhouse, then feints a haymaker to reel Bryan in! PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and Dax can’t believe it! But fans rally up as Dax goes to the corner and climbs up. Dax DIVING HEADBUTTS but FLOPS as Bryan dodges! La Magistrol, TWO!!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!
The Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal is back! But this time the prize is a match with MJF for the ring, and the Diamond Ring contender can name the time and place they face him for it! Matt Hardy, Brian Cage, Ethan Page, Jungle Boy, Dalton Castle and Captain Shawn Dean are among the known participants, but who comes out on top to go after MJF’s other precious possession?
Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.
Tony Schiavone brings up next week’s special Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal. The Absolute is the #1 contender to MJF’s AEW World Championship, and he’s in action later tonight to warm-up for Winter is Coming. Starks says that’s right, but he would like to make “an absolute announcement.” Starks is entering IN that battle royal! Starks is going to make a judgment call right now: Starks will WIN that battle royal! Why? Because Starks is coming for everything MJF has! The title, the diamond ring, and his spot at the top! Everything MJF has is owed to Starks as well. He is Absolute for a reason, he proves it tonight, next week and ultimate proves it at Winter is Coming! Will Ricky Starks single-handedly change the AEW landscape to close out the year?
Hangman Page is being escorted out by security.
But then he spots Moxley! The brawl is back on!! Who could’ve guessed?! They ditch the couple of security guards, and Hangman TOSSES Moxley into a garage door! Security rushes back in with reinforcements, but Moxley throws them aside to get at Hangman! Security and refs pry these two apart for what feels like the hundredth time already, what will it take for these two to wait for a match?
Renee Paquette holds a special sit-down interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Renee is live in Nashville with Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker and thanks them for this time. She also has the Blackpool Combat Club’s Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli here. She thanks them for being here, and thanks them all for agreeing to no physicality. Renee starts with Claudio, but then Menard speaks up! When Claudio loses to Chris Jericho next week and has no choice but to be in the JAS, “The beautiful thing about being a sports entertainer, Claudio, is you can be anything you want! You like yodeling? You can be a yodeler!” Renee has the JAS calm down, she hadn’t even asked a question.
The JAS oblige, and Renee says that at ROH Final Battle, in the main event, it will be Claudio VS Jericho for the ROH World title. What would it mean to Claudio to regain that title and bring it back to professional wrestling? It would mean a whole lot. That was his first world title anywhere. It would silence the doubting voice in his head that says he can’t win “the big one.” He needs to prove that, and vows he will prove that. Hager speaks up to just say, “I like this hat!” Then he takes out a matching bucket hat from his fanny pack, and he offers it to Claudio! Deep down, Claudio the Sports Entertainer will love the hat. They can be a great tag team again!
Claudio says he is sick of this! He is sick of the JAS, of sit-down interviews, and being on stage with microphones. He came to AEW to prove he is the best WRESTLER! He does that at Final Battle when he beats Jericho! Claudio throws his chair away but the JAS laughs like hyenas. Garcia says the BCC is falling apart! Yuta says Garcia shouldn’t talk about stuff he knows nothing about! Garcia says alright, here’s what he does know: he made the right choice staying with the JAS! Because that little combat club is falling apart! They’ll prove it next week on Dynamite by “beating up some pro-wrestling dorks!” Hager & Garcia VS Claudio & Yuta!
Yuta says he is done with the JAS, the stupid hat, the stupid nicknames, and those suspenders with a belt. What the hell are you doing, Parker? The only reason Garcia isn’t just dead to Yuta is because Yuta wants that ROH Pure Championship! So yeah, tag match challenge accepted. But at Final Battle, Garcia puts the Pure title on the line and they end this. Garcia says okay then. Yuta storms off now, will the BCC reclaim gold and honor to end their 2022?
AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS AR Fox!
Sure, Wardlow wants his belt back, but #TwoBeltsJoe is already ready to move on. Will Joe stay the Double Television Champion? Or will the newest high-flyer to go #AllElite start off with a bang?
The introductions are made, the AEW title is raised, and we see just who is The Face of TNT!
The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Fans sing “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” as the two tie up. Joe powers Fox to a corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Joe then throws a body shot, JAB, JAB, JAB, JAB, and HEAD CHOP! Fans fire up, Joe stomps Fox and drags him up. Joe DECKS Fox, then mockingly applauds. Joe brings Fox up but Fox throws hands! Joe HEADBUTTS Fox, runs, but Fox goes Matrix to duck the lariat! Fox PELES Joe and Joe tumbles out of the ring! Fans fire up as Fox builds speed and FLIES! But Joe moves aside! Only for Fox to roll through and stand back up! Joe turns around into a BOOT!
Joe gets in the ring, Fox follows and CLUBS away! Joe sweeps the legs! Fox lands on his face, Joe lands on Fox with a SENTON! Joe snarls at Fox as AEW goes picture in picture.
Joe covers, TWO! Joe sits Fox up to CHOP him to ropes, then stands him up. Joe bumps Fox off buckles, then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Joe storms up to Fox, drags him up, but Fox throws body shots! Fox runs, but Joe CLOBBERS him! Joe snarls, stalks Fox and then covers, ONE!! Fox is showing toughness and that amuses Joe. Joe drags Fox up, snapmares him and clamps on a hard neck wrench! Fox endures as Joe leans all his weight on the twist! Fox fights up as fans rally, and Fox throws body shots. Joe throws Fox down by his head! The ref reprimands, and Fox sits up, into a MULE KICK! Cover, TWO!
Now Joe is frustrated as Fox sticks around. Joe stalks Fox to ropes, drags him up, and bumps him off buckles. Joe CLUBS away on Fox’s back with big forearm shots, then CHOPS him on the back! Fox slumps down and Joe smirks as he digs his boot in. The ref count, Joe lets off, and then Joe paces around. Joe drags Fox back up, HEADBUTTS him, but Fox kicks back! Joe throws a forearm, Fox kicks, repeat, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fox runs, but Joe scoops to a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Fox barely bridges up for that, and Joe taunts him. Joe puts Fox in a corner, hoists him up top, but Fox throws forearms!
Joe CHOPS Fox back! And then climbs up after Fox, but Fox throws body shots! Joe steps back, Fox FLYING DDTs! Fans fire up and Fox MULE KICKS, BUZZSAWS, but then Joe ducks the heel kick, only to get a BASEMENT CUTTER! Fox hurries up top, 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Joe survives and shocks Fox! Fans fire up as Fox pounds the mat. Fox has some blood in his mouth but he just goes back up top. Fox leaps, but Joe moves aside. This time Fox crashes and burns! Joe runs to POUNCE Fox into the ropes! Joe hoists Fox up top, tucks him in, MUSCLE BUSTER!! Cover, Joe wins!
Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
A strong first defense, he gets both belts on his shoulders, and then he gets a mic. “Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to welcome you to a new and glorious era! For I am the One True King of Television!” But Wardlow is on the tron! “Hey, self-proclaimed King of TV. Wow, that’s almost as good as the last nickname you came up with in War Joe. Listen, I hope you enjoyed playing the role, because I’m coming for what’s mine! Cuz Joe, this ain’t your world, this is WARDLOW’S WORLD!” Wardlow has the fans chanting his name, will Joe have to watch his back from now on?
“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs continues his homecoming journey.
Still in Oakland, California, Hobbs says, “I walk along these streets… I’ve been bullied, I’ve been beaten up. It’s only made me tougher.” The guys on the street rolling dice spot him and give him space. They all wonder who that was, but know not to mess with him. Hobbs continues to narrate, “I’m going to let each and every one of you feel the pain, the hurt, the happiness. I’m taking what belongs to me.”
AEW presents a new Technique By Taz.
We review Hook’s match with Lee Moriarty in defense of the FTW Championship. Taz points out that Hook’s escape from the Border City Stretch was all about breaking wrist control and sitting out to shift and pop free. Then Hook gets the half nelson and cross choke for the Redrum. Moriarty may be a submission savant, but Hook might be a prodigy. Will the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil continue to make his father proud in defending that title?
William Regal is here!
Indianapolis boos as “this snake, this coward” (Excalibur’s words on commentary) makes his way to the ring. Moxley is no longer in the building so Regal doesn’t have to hide. He walks down the Burberry carpet and into the ring where something is on a pedestal under a cover. Regal gets a mic while fans boo more, and he says, “Ladies and gentlemen… Your new AEW World Champion… Maxwell Jacob Friedman!” MJF makes his entrance, here as promised last week. Fans are torn as MJF swaggers his way out, belt around his waist and Burberry scarf around his neck. MJF goes to the ring, mic already in hand.
MJF and Regal hug, and MJF says, “I know you people aren’t very bright, but when The Best Wrestler on God’s Green Earth is holding a microphone, you keep your hillbilly mouths shut.” Fans boo more as MJF says, “I would now like to tell you people how my and Mr. Regal’s unholy union-” Fans tell MJF to STFU and that gives him pause. “How uncouth.” But MJF finishes his thought by saying, “Not too long ago, Mr. Regal sent me an email and it was right after The Firm had attacked me, and that email reads as follows.
“Maxwell, I watched on as The Firm attacked you. It’s become very clear you’ve grown weak. I see all the potential in you to not just become a villain, but the greatest villain of our time. However, as I’ve said previously, you have much to learn. I’m willing to help you reach your true potential, but if you want to get the world title around your waist, this time you mustn’t grab the Dynamite Ring. Instead, you must grab the brass one. Yours Sincerely, Sir William Regal.” It was after that that MJF and Regal secretly met, and MJF is not afraid to admit that Regal is a genius.
MJF was more than apt to listen when Regal said to not use the diamond ring, but the brass knuckles. Regal didn’t want MJF to just beat Moxley, no no. He wanted MJF to leave Moxley with a lesson in the form of an emotional scar so that Moxley will never forget the day that he was outsmarted by MJF. “Now let’s talk about The Firm, shall we?” MJF knows everyone wants to know what he’s going to do to The Firm, “and to be honest, eh. I kinda respect The Firm. They saw a weakness in me, and like sharks smelling blood, they attacked, and I would’ve done the exact same thing.
“And let’s be fair, even if I did harbor some resentment, Mr. Regal, do I really seem like the type to chase anyone down?” Regal says no. MJF says that’d take effort. And as Indy knows oh too well, effort is for poors like all of them! See, MJF is above that. And speaking of things MJF is above, let’s talk about the belt, shall we? When MJF became our AEW World Champion, he made a promise to himself that he’d make changes around here. Out with the old, in with the new, and so looking at this belt, he wants to vomit in his mouth. And that’s not just from being in Indiana.
Fans boo more but MJF says, “It’s because it desperately needs an upgrade. This belt is tacky, it lacks class, and to make matters worse, it reminds me of all the men who held it previously. And if we’re being honest with ourselves, yeah, sure, they were all talented in their own rights, I guess. But I think we can all agree none of them are on my level. And that is specifically why this version of the title, much like all of you, is garbage.” MJF throws down Pretty Platinum! And then Regal unveils the BURBERRY STRAPPED AEW World Championship! MJF introduces to the world, the new and improved AEW World Championship, “Triple B: The Big Burberry Belt!”
Fans boo but MJF says this is now the most important, prestigious and prolific world title in all of pro-wrestling, and that’s because MJF is the one holding it! “No one, and I mean no one, deserves to be recognized as world champion except for me! Not any of your over-hyped, overrated pieces of trash you guys constantly push for. Fake tough guys like Eddie Kingston…” Fans start chanting for “Eddie! Eddie!” MJF says they can chant all they want, Eddie will NEVER be world champion. MJF calls out other fake tough guys like Ricky Starks. Starks is a fake star is what he is!
And speaking of fakes, let’s talk about the worst of the worst, the middest of the mid, fake wrestlers like Bryan Danielson! Fans boo but MJF says, “No offense, in comparison to me, Bryan Danielson couldn’t wrestle his way out of a gaddamn paper bag. No offense, Mr. Regal, you tried everything you could. Some people just can’t be helped.” MJF tells Indy to pipe down, but speaking of people who can’t be helped, here’s a message to everyone on HIS show, in HIS locker room and on HIS roster. “So long as I’m in this company, you will never know what it feels like to be on top, because I am going to be world champion for a very long time. All the way, in fact, until the bidding war of 2024!”
At that time, Triple B will be a bargaining chip to get the biggest money contract in the history of the business! MJF will make more money in a day than any of these white trash hicks in their miserable lives! “I just pray to God the right Khan foots the bill, and Lord knows I ain’t talking about Tony.” MJF grins at the camera because he’s talking about “Mah boi, jolly ol’ Saint Nick! And my other boy, The Game, Trips. And if I’m being completely transparent here, Mr. Regal, come January 1st, 2024, I don’t even know if a wrestling company wins the bidding war, because quite frankly, I am getting sick and tired of having to look at disgusting, grotesque professional wrestling fans on a weekly basis. Maybe Hollywood wins!”
MJF grins as fans boo more. But MJF isn’t deaf. He knows there is an interesting amount of fans who were over the moon for him to become champion! Okay, to those fans, fantastic. But call him “Mystic Max,” because their happiness will soon turn to resentment, because those fans are fickle! “Pretty soon, you’ll be saying stuff like, ‘I am sick of MJF! He’s so boring! He’s so repetitive! All he does is talk! He never wrestles. He’s a coward!’ There it is!” Fans chant “BORING~!” as MJF continues to predict the rants about making opponents jump through hoops. But to those people, MJF says, “Great.”
Because y’know who keeps tuning in, praying to God that someone takes Triple B off MJF? YOU! MJF says during his long and illustrious reign, Triple B will be defended very rarely, and he will wrestler very rarely, because unlike everyone else, he’s a special attraction. “In order for you discussing poors to see me defend my title, nine times outta ten, you will have to reach into your pockets for that small amount of money that you have, and buy a PPV in hopes to see someone dethrone me. Newsflash: they won’t. I am about to have a world title reign that will make Hulk Hogan, JBL and Jeff Jarrett seem short and sweet!
“I am about to have a world title reign that is gonna make that shmuck, Bruno Sammartino, roll in his shitty little grave!” Fans boo as MJF stoops to new lows in his insults. MJF says we are now in the Era of MJF, and his reign of terror has only just begun. Fans boo as he holds up Triple B, but then MJF remembers something! He knows fans are confused by all this, but hold on. MJF brings the brass knuckles out and says without these, and without Regal, none of this is possible. The fans might’ve booed when Regal came out here, but everyone still respects him, both fans and wrestlers alike. Because for 40 YEARS, Regal, has given blood, sweat, tears, and sacrificed so much to the business!
MJF gets fans to cheer Regal because Regal loves the business. So that’s why MJF wanted to say from the bottom of his heart, SUCKER PUNCH WITH THE KNUCKLES!!!! Fans boo as hard as ever as MJF walks over and squats by Regal’s prone body. “It’s funny. You said I had much to learn, and yet you’re the one who made a deal with The Devil. So allow me to leave you with the words you left me seven long years ago. ‘Will, the game has changed. MJF exclusive hires top talents and top world class athletes. When you’re of them, send me your stuff. Yours Sincerely, the World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman.'”
MJF drops the mic, brings Triple B with him, and leaves through the crowd. Bryan hurries to Regal’s side, along with the medics. Regal wanted to make the greatest villain of all time, but he have just created the worst monster of all time! Did MJF cross a line no one should ever cross?
AEW returns as Regal is loaded into an ambulance.
He has a neck brace and backboard as he is on the stretcher. Bryan is there, he’s going to ride with Regal to the hospital. Will Lord Regal be alright? Will someone avenge him by ruining all of MJF’s plans for his future?
Ricky Starks VS Ari Daivari!
Speaking of, the Absolute #1 contender plans to ruin the holidays for MJF by taking both world title AND diamond ring! Will Starks be red hot going into the battle royal? Or will Daivari Dinero already ruin Ricky’s own run?
Before the bell, Stokely Hathaway walks out to have everyone wait. He also has Ethan Page and Matt Hardy with him, and Hardy steals the spotlight by getting the fans cheering for V1 and “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” Stokely tells Hardy to get his ass to the back! Hardy smiles, but Ethan tells him to not forget that The Firm owns his ass! And in that Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal, Hardy’s gonna help Ethan win it all, because Ricky took away that #1 contendership away from him! So Ethan vows to take the battle royal from Starks. AND, Ethan is calling his shot right now!
At Winter is Coming, after MJF whoops Starks’ ass around the whole arena defending the world title successfully, Ethan will whoop MJF’s tired ass! Then Ethan will be the one with the diamond ring, and Starks will just watch and cry. IF he makes it to Winter is Coming. Daivari CLOBBERS Starks in the corner! The ref rings the bell, Daivari stomps a mudhole, then he fires off hands. Daivari whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to SPEAR! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Daivari up! Underhooks, gut wrench, ROSHAMBEAUX!! Cover, Starks wins!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall
Starks looks at Ethan and Stokely as they’re already eating their words. Will All Ego be deflated in that battle royal? Will Starks win big again to then go for BOTH of MJF’s prizes?
Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, Britt Baker & Rebel.
Tony Schiavone is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, the Doctor, and the Doctor’s Assistant and brings up last week how Britt & Hayter won big in tag team action. Britt wants Tony to keep “Doctor” in how he addresses her. And also, she shouts out the big win by her Pittsburgh Steelers right here in Indianapolis. But let’s talk about what is really concerning: The coming sit-down interview Renee has with Saraya. Hayter has a great idea! Why not a sit-down interview with THE Women’s World Champion! A little chat even. And he will, next week. Renee can sit her ass at home! It’s settled, yours truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.

The House of Black speaks.
Malakai himself says, “Before this week is done, you will have seen more of us making less of them.” The House is back from the dead, what does this mean for AEW?
Backstage interview with QT Marshall and Orange Cassidy.
Schiavone notes we all saw The Factory and Best Friends fall victim to the return of Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews. They agreed to this time to talk it out. QT wants to talk directly to Cassidy since he keeps getting interrupted. QT wants a shot at the All-Atlantic Championship. Cassidy says no problem. Oh, yeah, okay. Then this Friday on Rampage, it won’t just be a normal match! QT wants a Lumberjack match! Yeah, love it, great. See you then. QT can’t stand that, though he got what he wanted, Cassidy kept talking over him. But since he got what he wanted, will QT get the title? Or will he just get what he deserves?
The Baddies are here!
And it is a celebration for the still undefeated AEW TBS Champion! Jade Cargill is 42-0, has the physical belt back, and has Red Velvet back, though she kicked Kiera Hogan to the curb. That aside, they and Leila Grey go to the ring, Velvet and Leila in magenta to contrast with all the green and gold. The confetti cannons go off with red, while Jade has the mic to say, “Now we all know why we’re here tonight: because of me, and my big ass celebration! But before we begin, let me address something and set the record straight. I made the Baddies, I say who stays and who goes. Now you see, I got rid of the trash last week. So I’m so confused as to why you two were chilling with her this past weekend!”
Velvet shrugs, Leila rolls her eyes, but Jade says she is done playing games! Jade got her belt back from Nyla Rose at Full Gear! Understand that to stand next to Jade is a blessing. So either you two get in line, or they can step. Because they are eating on her dime, making names off of her, and this whole company is eating off of her! SHE is the brightest star the company has! Stand her next to any wrestler in the back, and every consumer knows she’s the star! No one has Jade’s face, Jade’s body, or Jade’s aura. NOBODY! Leila and Velvet seem to agree with that since they’re staying right there in the ring.
Jade then asks the fans, “So you tell me what we’re gonna do about that. And you all can play, but I put asses in seats!” Plenty of the fans agree with that. “I wrestle for bad bitches. Now cameramen, do your job and get my Baddies.” The cameras do in fact find the Indy Baddie Section as Jade continues. “I am the real deal! I am nothing but real. And like I said, I create careers. And speaking of careers, Lil’ Bow Wow is a joke! Is a total joke!” But wait, Bow Wow is on the tron! And he says, “Jadey, baby, you deserve all the flowers in the world. Congratulations on your little win. It was cute, really cute.”
But to get to business, time is money and Bow Wow is all about money. He’s done with his tour, has a lot of time on his hands, so what does that mean? “See you soon. Real, real soon.” Jade doesn’t understand what the hell is going on with Bow Wow, but she and the Baddies storm out of the ring. Who, if anyone, will ever dethrone #ThatBitch?
The Acclaimed speak.
Billy Gunn is with Max Caster & Anthony Bowens backstage, and he’s like a drill sergeant with his trainees. He asks, “Why is there a camera in our face?” Bowens answers, “Because AEW stands for Acclaimed Every Wednesday.” Billy asks, “Why do you two not have a match on Dynamite?” Caster answers, “Because Everyone Loves the Acclaimed, and no one wants to fight us, Daddy Ass.” Billy asks, “And what are you two going to do about it?” Bowens says, “I have an idea, Daddy Ass.” Then would he like to let us all know? Bowens says this Friday on Rampage, they give a tag title opportunity to the best tag team in AEW!
How can that possibly be when THEY are the best team in AEW?! Caster says Bowens meant the second best team, Daddy Ass. Sorry. Okay. Then there’s only one thing left to do: SCISSOR FINGER~!!! Who is the second best team in AEW? AKA the #1 contenders? We’ll see this Friday when Rampage returns to its regular time of 10 PM Eastern!
AEW World Trios Championships Best of 7, Match 3: Death Triangle VS The Elite!
PAC, Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M ruined the return of Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks with a bell hammer. Then they cheated the second match with another bell hammer. Will there be THREE hammers in this third match? Or can the Best Bout Machine and his boys finally get on the board?
The fans sing Carry On My Wayward Son for The Elite, and then the introductions are made. But then The Elite attack Death Triangle on the ramp! Omega is after Fenix, Matt Jackson is after Pac and Nick Jackson is after Penta! Fans fire up as the brawl goes from ramp to stage, but then also down the ramp. Indy fires up for “THE! ELITE! THE THE ELITE!” as Omega and Nick mug Fenix. Matt ROCKS Penta, the ref reprimands everyone, but Penta runs, into a back drop to the ramp! Nick kicks Fenix, runs to get a boost from Matt, the RANA sends Fenix down the ramp! Omega RAMS Pac into part to the tunnel, to hit a KOTARO KRUSHER to the stage!
The Bucks check on Omega, that elevated bulldog really hurts the tailbone and hip. Nick CLUBS away on Pac, drags him up, and Matt walks Pac with Nick down the ramp. They head for ringside, Omega walks off the pain, and the Bucks set Pac up. Omega runs down the ramp to build up speed, for a SUPERKICK from Pac!! The Lucha Brothers then somersault down the ramp, DOUBLE STUNNERS!! Death Triangle turns things around on Elite and this still isn’t even on record as AEW goes picture in picture!
Fenix CLUBS Omega, ROCKS him and they end up going around the ramp. Matt and Nick hobble, Penta and Pac keep on them. Omega and Fenix brawl just offstage in front of fans. Fenix UPPERCUTS, Penta CLUBS and KICKS Nick to send him along the pyro grate. Nick hits Penta back and TOSSES Penta off onto Fenix and Omega! Pac and Matt brawl at center stage while Nick LEAPS to AX HANDLE Penta back down! Matt KICKS Pac towards that side of the stage, reels him in, but Pac blocks the suplex. Matt keeps trying but Pac throws body shots. Matt throws those shots back, then punches away on Pac’s forehead!
Matt gets space, runs but Pac BOOTS him away! Then Pac says what the hell, and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS onto Nick, Omega and the Lucha Brothers!! Death Triangle then drags Nick and Omega up, but Matt SUPER CROSSBODIES them all down! Omega helps Matt up and the Elite drag Death Triangle up. The brawling continues, going back to the ramp and then to ringside. Omega sends Penta into railing while Nick sends Pac into the apron. Fenix whips but Matt reverses to send Fenix into barriers! Matt mocks Fenix’s pain then kicks him down! Matt then brings Fenix around to have him join the others ringside.
Dynamite returns to single picture, Brandon Cutler is vlogging this for The Elite as they set up Death Triangle. They all put one out, but the ref wants this to finally get in the ring. Omega says fine, and he puts Penta in the ring. The bell finally sounds and NOW this is a match! Then Omega kicks Penta out of the ring, the Bucks DOUBLE APRON POWERBOMB Fenix and Pac! Omega then brings Penta around, but Penta fights that bomb off to CHOP Omega! And CHOP Matt! And tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER Nick! Omega rushes back in, but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up with Penta as he shouts, “CERO! MIEDO!”
But then Penta moves, Matt WRECKS the ref with that wrecking ball dropkick!! And Alex Abrahantes sneaks a bell hammer to Penta! Penta hurries, hiding that hammer in his waistband. Penta then sets that down in a corner, and builds speed to FLY! Direct hit on The Elite! Penta puts Omega in, grabs said hammer, and fans are torn! Fenix gets in and he tells Penta NO! They’ve already done this enough for his liking! Penta tells him to shut up and just watch! But then Fenix grabs the hammer from Penta! V-TRIGGER hits Fenix!!

Omega survives again and fans are thunderous as AEW goes picture in picture.

Winners: The Elite, by pinfall (the series is now 2-1, in favor of Death Triangle)
FINALLY, The Elite score one on Death Triangle! But they’ve still got a long way to go in this Best of 7! Omega gets the mic to say, “There was never gonna be a sweep, as long as The Cleaner’s in town. We’re bringing this back, it’s gonna be a reverse sweep. And boy, this is the first time in awhile I’ve been able to close a show. So without any further adieu, I must bid you all a good bye, mwah! And good night, BANG! Now play that song again, would ya?” Fans sing Carry On again as Dynamite goes off the air. Will The Elite come back from being down two to win this in six? Or will Winter is Coming cool them off so that Death Triangle can get hot again?
Great Dynamite here to pave more of the road for Winter is Coming. For one, a very creative change to the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal since the current ringbearer is also the current AEW World Champion. I had a feeling Starks would want in on that on top of being #1 contender to the world title. Starks squashed Daivari, he really should win the battle royal so he can make Winter is Coming a Winner Takes All situation. At the same time, that does seem a shame to have Starks lose both prizes, so maybe Starks calls for a double header? He may not win the belt but he can win the ring and take MJF’s ace in the hole.
And speaking of the battle royal, I do like that Ethan wants to force Hardy to help him, but I bet Hardy finds a way to mess that up for him. Then maybe that starts things towards Hardy liberating himself and Private Party from The Firm. #HardyParty has been building up wins on Dark and Elevation, they could be Trios contenders on the other side of Elite VS Death Triangle, and that could be all the more reason The Firm will want to keep them under contract as long as possible.
Great opening segment from Moxley and the surprise return of Hangman! Of course it turns into a brawl that happens again backstage, and that will definitely be a match for Winter is Coming. And I think we will get the proper finish there we were meant to see in the title match. Amazing first match of the night in Bryan VS Dax tonight. Dax has definitely proven himself as a great wrestler, no matter what division we’re talking about. He loves being a tag guy with Cash, but maybe before calling it a day, Dax will win a midcard title. Perhaps the All-Atlantic Championship since Cassidy loves putting that thing up.
QT and Cassidy had a hilarious little promo to set up a match for Rampage, but a Lumberjack Match is just tailor made for the House of Black showing up and wrecking everyone ringside. I’m pretty sure Cassidy retains the title either way, and he’ll likely defend it against Malakai 1v1. Acclaimed have a good promo to set up a tag title match, but I don’t see FTR stepping up to them on a Rampage. It’ll probably be whoever is second on the contender’s list. And whichever that team is, they’re losing to The Acclaimed. FTR and Gunn Sons have to set up something for Final Battle, it’s what makes sense.
Speaking of other things that were set up for Final Battle and that make sense, great sit-down interview promo from JAS and BCC, especially with Claudio being fed up with the constant interviews. Hager bringing out a second purple bucket hat is hilarious, too. Hager & Garcia VS Claudio & Yuta will be a great tag match, Garcia VS Yuta will be a great Pure title match since we’ve seen it a couple times already. But I cannot be sure where the titles go. Of the two, I see Garcia losing, but then that means Claudio will be forced to sports entertain. A part of me would love seeing what happens with that, though.
The celebration for The Baddies wasn’t much of a celebration, and they didn’t even get to have the clearly red velvet cake. But Jade really amped up her arrogance saying Jade is AEW. I almost thought this was the moment she turned off Velvet and Leila for good, but guess not. And Bow Wow either has a proxy to dethrone Jade, or he is such a distraction that Jade loses. I can’t be sure who Bow Wow introduces in the first idea, while that second idea feels a bit cheap. I suppose it does keep Jade strong in her first loss ever, but Jade is so good as a character that she deserves to be beat by someone straight up so there’s no excuse.
Good match for Willow VS Anna and a very good win for Willow. But since she’s lost multiple times to Jade, she probably has to wait until Jade loses it so she can go after the new champ. And a great return for Ruby in her hometown, she and Willow can both build momentum taking the fight to TayJay. Good promo from Hayter and Britt to keep the “hate-on” for Saraya. Nice return of Technique by Taz, and I really liked the orange filter. No idea who is next for Hook, or who dethrones him, but Hook is finally facing people that challenge him, so that’s good.
Another great vignette for Hobbs. He really should be TNT Champion, but it is nice to get some real depth for his character. He’ll definitely be the next TNT Champion after Wardlow VS Joe. Joe VS Fox was a great match, too, and it’s great for Fox to be somewhere higher profile. MJF continues to be great on the mic, but he should be pissed at whoever made that belt for him. The Big Burberry Belt just looks like a Big Brown Belt because of how muted those colors ended up on the leather. But you do have to appreciate MJF has picked up the mantle of “AEW’s HHH Parody” with Cody Rhodes in WWE.
And just as things were starting to drag on, MJF turns it all around with that sucker punch to Regal! Bryan was devastated, but he’ll surely return with rage, wanting after MJF, and I wonder if Tony Khan already shoots down MJF’s “PPVs only” stipulation by making MJF face Bryan at like Holiday Bash or New Year’s Smash to see if MJF even makes it to 2023 as champion. Also, lots of people are talking about Regal going back to WWE but not going back to WWE, I don’t know which will happen, but this is of course a way to write him off for a moment and give him a great return moment to screw MJF over.
And lastly, what a great main event for the trios titles. I feel like half of the segment wasn’t even officially a match. These two teams keep busting out great stuff, and the Death Triangle story with the hammer continues. It more or less cost them tonight, but the Elite had to get on the board somehow. They take a week off from this series next week to come back at Winter is Coming, but I bet there will be a promo where Fenix argues with Penta about the hammer. This is all leading to The Elite getting the belts at the end of the series, and then Death Triangle might fall apart. I don’t really want that, the Trios Division needs trios as great as them, but if even The Dark Order can fall apart, then any trio can.
My Score: 8.8/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (11/29/22)
Newark gets Dark!
Will Newark APPRECIATE Garcia, Menard & Parker?
AEW moves on from Thanksgiving and prepares for December! Winter is Coming, but who will be primed for golden opportunities?
- Six Man Tag: The Factory VS Justin Corino, Ryan Mooney & Steve Josifi; The Factory wins.
- Zack Clayton VS Chris Wylde; Clayton wins.
- Hikaru Shida w/ Hagane Shinno VS Layla Luciano; Shida wins.
- Six Man Tag: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Tracy Williams, LSG and Jack Tomlinson; The JAS wins.
- Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tony Deppen; Cage wins.
- Angelico VS Hagane Shinno; Angelico wins.
- Emi Sakura w/ Baliyan Akki VS Tiara James; Sakura wins.
- Six Man Tag: Hardy Party VS The Wingmen; Hardy Party wins.
Hikaru Shida bringing along Hagane Shinno (formerly known as Madoka) is interesting. More Japanese promotions seem to be willing to let talent work with AEW, and that of course helps AEW get recognition internationally, and helps those promotions get recognition in the USA. Shinno will definitely get a win off Angelico, but AEW’s already such a full roster, who knows if Shinno will see any TV time.
Good to see the Wingmen together again, even if it’s to lose to Hardy Party. But even the Trios Division needs its lower midcard, and that is where The Wingmen will be. Matt Hardy & Private Party might end up becoming The Firm’s Trios Championship contenders if they keep building up wins on AEW YouTube. They could give whoever comes out of the Best of 7 Series a great match, and we could see a lot of overbooked, “internal conflict” of whether Hardy Party is Face or Heel, same as we’re seeing with Death Triangle always resorting to the hammer.
UPDATE: Welp, didn’t think Angelico would win but he did. I guess not ever new star that comes into AEW can just get a free win.
