Archer staggers about, Kingston elbows him on the back then goes after the leg. Kingston chokes Archer on ropes, lets off as the ref counts, then stalks Archer to another corner for kidney shots! Kingston keeps on Archer’s body, kicks the legs out, but Archer rakes eyes back! Fans rally as Archer ROCKS Kingston with a right! Kingston flounders, CHOPS back, and CHOPS again, then goes to a corner, Kingston goes up, leaps, FLYING SHOULDER! Archer stays up!? Archer shakes out the cobwebs but Kingston runs, but Archer DERAILS him! Fans fire up while Kingston sits up in a daze.

Archer stalks Kingston, drags him up by his ears, then brings him around to CLUB him. Kingston clings to Archer’s legs but Archer brings him up to CHOP him down! Fans want that “One More Time!” and Archer drags Kingston up to CHOP him again! Kingston flops down and Archer seethes as he drags him back up. Archer choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Kingston to the apron! Kingston flops to the floor as fans lose their minds! The ring count climbs as Kingston stirs, but Archer goes out to fetch him.

The Fam isn’t done, either, they sit Archer back up for Kingston’s BACK HAND! Jake the Snake tries to get up but the damage has been done. Will Kingston and his henchmen continue to wreak havoc on AEW?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Okay, let me see if I’ve got this right. The Young Bucks are the tag team champions, and they’re friends with Kenny, but Kenny’s friends with The Goody Brothers, and they’re the tag team champions, too. So now they’re all friends? They’re all one big happy family? How is that going to work? Is that going to work?” No it’s not. The Elite is like The Young & The Restless. And then there’s Death Triangle, PAC & The Lucha Brothers, who don’t like any part of The Elite. They don’t even like Moxley, because they used to be friends with Kingston who has beef with Mox. But now Moxley has to team with them at Beach Break?

Moxley is a simple guy. Cold beer, hot coffee, room temperature water and sex in the morning because it’s a great way to start the day. The only person you can trust is number one, so he only trusts his two hands. But Moxley loves Six Man Tags, so saddle up, compadres. This’ll be fun! Gang warfare! Moxley doesn’t know what happens at Beach Break, but it’ll be wild~! Incendiary ingredients on Dynamite, don’t blink or you’ll miss it.

 

Sting and Darby Allin speak.

The Icon says they’ll get on a first name basis right now. Taz, Brian, Ricky, since they’ll be in that Street Fight at Revolution, and since Team Taz loves to throw out false accusations, Sting will say their feelings are hurt. They called these two hoodlums? Really? Darby is a bit of a hoodlum, yes, but in the streets, it doesn’t matter if you play it clean or dirty. It’s all about survival! Darby chucks his skateboard through a window, and admits he is a hoodlum, no different from Sting. Sting uses the baseball bat to smash up the rest of the window! Sting admits it, too. Revolution, Street Fight, showtime.

 

Y2MJF w/ The Inner Circle VS The Varsity Blondes!

There’s a lot of history to this match, even before things in AEW. But Chris Jericho won’t hold back on Brian Pillman Jr. over it, and he expects nothing less from Pillman Jr. in return. But will that mean the first 2v2 outing of Le Demo God and the Salt of the Earth won’t be a success?

Jericho revels in the fans singing Judas for him, the teams sort out, and MJF wants to speak first. MJF wants to talk with Sammy Guevara later, and then he says is that Griff? Look at Goldilocks here. Last time they met, MJF embarrassed Griff on live television. So let’s just skip ahead to where Griff loses, okay? NOPE! Griff DECKS MJF, keeps him in the ring, then rains down more fists! MJF scrambles away, Wardlow keeps him away from Griff, but Griff gets around to get back in. MJF dodges but Griff BOOTS him down! The Inner Circle gets MJF to safety and MJF gets a chair out of frustration. The Inner Circle keeps MJF from throwing this match and MJF says Griff is dead!

MJF gets back in the ring, talks trash, then tags out to Jericho. Jericho run sin but into a drop toehold! Griff wrenches Jericho, tags in BPJ, and the Blondes double whip, kick and NECKBREAKER to a leg drop, brother! Cover, TWO! BPJ CHOPS Jericho, wrenches and whips, but Jericho holds ropes to deny the dropkick. Jericho runs but BPJ dropkicks him down! BPJ drags Jericho up, clamps onto the arm, but Jericho uses cheap shots to get free. Jericho whips BPJ corner to corner, but BPJ comes back to LARIAT! Fans fire up as BPJ whips, Jericho reveres and MJF gets a cheap shot in! Jericho DECKS BPJ then tags in MJF!

AEW goes picture in picture as MJF CLAWS BPJ and tells Griff up his! MJF digs his fingers into BPJ’s face but lets off as the ref reprimands. MJF stalks BPJ, throws punches down on him, then soaks up the heat from fans. MJF feeds BPJ to Jericho’s boot, then CHOPS him! Tag to Jericho, Jericho throws hands, then tags MJF back in. Y2MJF double whip, and double flapjack BPJ down! MJF steps on BPJ, then so does Jericho. The Inner Circle soaks up the heat, MJF drags BPJ up to CLUB him down. MJF kicks at Griff but scrambles away before he can get hit. MJF chokes BPJ, covers, TWO! MJF rakes BPJ’s eyes, rakes his face on the ropes, then headbutts him!

Tag to Jericho, MJF digs his boots into BPJ as Jericho gets in Griff’s face, then Griff goes back to stomp and bump BPJ off buckles. Jericho hoists BPJ up top, CHOPS him, then climbs up to join him. BPJ throws hands back but Jericho clubs him. Jericho stands up on the very top, but BPJ GOURD BUSTERS him! BPJ gets up, leaps, and hits a crossbody! Cover, TWO! Fans rally while both men are down and AEW returns to single picture. Hot tags to Griff and MJF! The Ivy League MVP rallies on Y2MJF but MJF kicks low! MJF runs into Griff’s HUGE back drop! Griff wrenches and ROCKS Jericho!

Fans fire up as Griff goes corner to corner, BIG splash to MJF! Whip to the corner, SPLASH for both Y2MJF! DOUBLE SPEAR!! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives but Griff just fires up as he drags MJF up. Griff whips MJF to the corner, hits a clothesline and tags BPJ! Griff rolls MJF for BPJ’s missile dropkick! Jericho tags in but BPJ is ready, SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives by split seconds! BPJ fires up as fans rally behind him. Jericho hits back, BPJ throws forearms and chops, but Jericho DECKS him! Jericho whips then runs but BPJ dumps Jericho to the apron! BPJ runs and dropkicks Jericho down!

Fans fire up with BPJ as he fetches Jericho into the ring. BPJ aims from a corner, springboards and leaps, into a JUDAS EFFECT!! LIONSAULT!! Cover, someone took out Griff, Y2MJF win!!

Winners: Y2MJF, by pinfall

MJF adds insult to injury as he throws BPJ out just so he can stand with Jericho. The Inner Circle’s “official” team in the tag division is off to a strong start, will they go all the way to the top and take the AEW World Tag Team Championships for their own?

 

PAC speaks.

“Here we go again!” Kenny Omega is taking liberties, acting like ‘Billy Big Bollocks,” acting like he owns the place and owns this business. He has the “clown” Callis and the Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions, while manipulating some and blindsiding others. SO at Beach Break, bring the Good Brothers, because Pac and Rey Fenix will show you what brotherhood is! You hit them, they hit you back! Time to face the consequences!

 

AEW shares Shaq’s message from the AEW Dynamite Awards on TNT.

“Cody Rhodes, you little punk. You want to battle, you just name the time and the day. I’ll be there.” Cody looks like a little girl with that blonde hair. Shaq suggests we do this in March, aka Revolution. What will Cody say?

Tony Schiavone is in the ring!

To respond to Shaq’s comments right now, here’s Cody Rhodes! The American Nightmare goes to the ring, along with Coach Arn Anderson. Schiavone knows they want to respond to Shaq, but also to Jade Cargill from The Waiting Room. Cody says to respond to Shaq and Jade, he’d rather just give us the “pitch.” He’d like to say March 7th, AEW Revolution, it’d be himself and Brandi Rhodes VS Shaq & Jade, but life happens. He and Brandi are having a baby. “In these moments where I am rather confused and distracted,” Cody defers to The Coach!

And if we’re wondering how much of a coach Arn is, Arn chewed Cody out for taking Peter Avalon too easily last week. Arn has been right consistently for years, they talked with Tony Khan about where Cody fits on the Revolution card, so the floor is Arn’s. Arn says he wants to earn his money because he might contradict himself, so please be patient. But the fact is, Cody’s about to be a dad. That is right on the forefront of his mind, as it should be. That is the most important thing in his life.

But think about this: June 29th, 1985. What date is that to Cody? That was when Arn saw Dusty Rhodes crawl in the ring with Tully Blanchard, fight 30 minutes, then fly home in time to see the birth of Baby Cody. Now if Cody chooses March 7th, to jump in the Revolution, do it with eyes wide open, no regrets. But Arn will point out the obvious: there is a lot of time between the birthdate and the show. Doesn’t Cody want to be part of something? It’s hard to capture the public eye but he could do that with this match.

For 19 years, Shaq dominated the court as a world-class athlete. Jade, every time she walks in, she dominates that room. But the fact is, Arn’s seen something these last two weeks, something that can’t be measured or even rational to name. Arn wants Cody to see something. In steps RED VELVET! Velvet has had her own problems with Jade Cargill, and Arn hopes Cody sees the fire inside Velvet like what Cody has in him. Velvet gets the mic to stare down the camera and say she’s here because she is FED UP of getting attacked, watching Brandi get disrespected by a “big mouth coward” who knows Brandi can’t defend herself.

Everyone knows Cody would never lay a hand on a woman. But Velvet will! Velvet is about to stir that bitch-ass up! Fans like the sound of that! Arn says that’s what he meant! Then perhaps Jade and Shaq have the ball in their court! Are we still getting a huge mixed tag match for Revolution?

 

AEW issues the official invite to the Superbad Beach Break wedding!

Kip Sabian says “my heart is in my hands My head is in the clouds. My feet have left the ground. And my life, our life, is turning around.” Penelope Ford is so excited to marry this handsome man, the man of her dreams, the best kisser. So they cordially invite us to watch their wedding, with Miro as The Best Man, and of course “Charles” Taylor the butler will be there! Surely a wedding on a wrestling program will go smoothly, right?

 

Hangman Page VS Ryan Nemeth!

The Cowboy takes on the debuting “Hollywood Hunk” as Hangman tries to shake off the awkward situation where he had to reject The Dark Order’s recruitment proposal. Will he be able to focus against this hungry and determined wrestler?

The bell rings, fans rally for Hangman but Nemeth shoots in to get a leg. Hangman gets the rope but Nemeth says he got a point like this is collegiate wrestling. They tie up again, Hangman wrenches to a wristlock but Nemeth gets around to hammerlock then headlock, two points! Hangman powers out, Nemeth bumps him but Hangman runs him over! Things speed up, Hangman fakes Nemeth out and BOOTS him down! Hangman CHOPS Nemeth to the corner, CHOPS him again, then chops but Nemeth dodges to CHOP and CHOP in return! Nemeth swaggers about but Hangman DECKS him!

Hangman stalks Nemeth to a corner, stomps a mudhole into him then walks it dry as the ref counts. Hangman drags Nemeth up to throw him to the apron, and then TRIANGLE LARIATS him to the floor! Nemeth gets up but Hangman PLANCHAS! Direct hit and fans fire up! Hangman drags Nemeth up, puts him back in, then fires the fans up as he runs in corner to corner. Nemeth dodges to dropkick Hangman down! Cover, ONE! Nemeth wrenches and WRINGS the arm out, and now Big Money Matt Hardy is ringside? Is he scouting? Nemeth hammerlocks an arm, headstands to put pressure on the hold, then grabs at hair. The ref reprimands and Nemeth lets go.

Hangman gets up to CHOP and forearm but Nemeth knees low! Nemeth whips but Hangman holds ropes. Nemeth kicks, whips but Hangman reverses, only for Nemeth to turn it around into a Rude Awakening! Cover, TWO! Hangman forearms but Nemeth hits back. Nemeth whips corner to corner but Hangman comes back to CLOBBER him! Hangman whips, Nemeth dodges but Hangman hits a SPINEBUSTER! Hardy seems to be cheering Hangman on as Nemeth gets to a corner. Hangman runs corner to corner to clothesline! Hangman rolls Nemeth, runs, SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO!

Hardy cheers Hangman with the fans as he brings Nemeth up to fireman’s carry. Nemeth fights out, Hangman CHOPS and whips but Nemeth reverses to SATELLITE DDT! Cover, TWO!! Hangman gets to a corner, Nemeth runs in but Hangman elbows him back! Nemeth runs into a boot, but he ducks a lariat to GERMAN SUPLEX! Hangman lands on his feet, ROLLING ELBOW! Hangman whips Nemeth to LARIAT! Then Hangman goes to the apron, takes aim, and slingshots, BUCK SHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Hardy applauds then goes up to the ramp. Hangman sees Hardy turn to leave but invites him into the ring. Tony Schiavone hurries over to see what this is about. Hardy didn’t want to create a scene, but the reason he came out was to be in Hangman’s corner and let him know he supports Hangman. Hardy has been a bit concerned, Hangman seems lost and conflicted. That’s understandable. Hardy was part of Stadium Stampede, he knows that Hangman got burned by The Elite and he didn’t deserve it. The Dark Order wants Hangman to join and that’s just awkward.

Hardy doesn’t want anything from Hangman, just to let him know that Hangman is a good person who deserves to be happy. Hardy needed to say that and Hangman needed to hear it. Hangman is dressing alone in the hallway near catering. Hardy has a huge dressing room with plenty of space. Hangman is more than welcome to join him there, no strings attached. Hardy lets Hangman think that over, what will Hangman’s answer be?

 

Jungle Boy w/ Jurassic Express VS Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler & Tully Blanchard!

Though Marko Stunt, Luchasaurus and the rest of FTR are all ringside, things will be a little different than usual. To make sure Cash and Tully don’t interfere, they will be handcuffed not just to each other, but to Luchasaurus! Will the wrestling dinosaur be able to keep things fair and square?

First, the ref and security help cuff Cash and Tully to Luchasaurus per the agreement. Then they all take a seat, though Luchasaurus has to make Cash sit. The bell rings and JB stares down with Dax. They tie up, Dax powers JB back to a corner but lets off as the ref calls for the break. Dax talks trash but JB shrugs it off. They tie up again, Dax headlocks but JB arm-drags free! Fans fire up for JB as he and Dax circle again. They tie up again, Dax waistlocks to full nelson but JB switches, only for Dax to headlock and hit a takeover. JB rolls Dax to a cover, ONE! Dax holds on, JB fights up and powers out but Dax runs him over!

Dax talks more trash as he looms over JB but JB gets up. JB and Dax tie up again, Dax gets another headlock but JB powers out, only for Dax to run him over again! Things speed up, Dax slide sunder but JB dropkicks him down! JB gets the legs, trips Dax, but Dax scrambles to a ropebreak! FTR wants to help Dax but Luchasaurus anchors them in the corner.

Dax and JB tie up with knuckle locks, Dax kicks low and fans boo as he CHOPS JB to a corner. Dax throws hard EuroUppers, and argues with the ref about the count before he CHOPS JB again!

JB CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS Dax to a corner but Dax turns things around to CHOP again! Dax stands JB up but JB CHOPS back! And CHOPS again, and again!

Dax fires off on JB, brings him up to another headlock, but JB back suplexes free! JB clotheslines Dax out of the ring! Dax staggers around and JB slides, but the baseball slide is sent into the railing! Now Luchasaurus is upset but it’s FTR who keeps him away. AEW goes picture in picture as Dax paces about.

The ref reprimands, Dax puts JB in, then Dax drags JB around to drop a leg fast across the face! Dax foregoes the rest of his usual combo to NORTHERN LIGHTS and bridge! TWO, and Dax is frustrated with JB! JB crawls, Dax drags him back up, and clamps on a chinlock! JB endures as Dax grinds him down, JB fights up, and throws body shots to power out.

Team Taz responds!

“So Sting, Darby, being that we’re on a first name basis and all, Ricky and Brian are ready to destroy you come Revolution.” But Will Hobbs and Hook notice something going on, and say hey to the merchandise guys. Wait, they have the Darby gear and Sting gear, but where are the Team Taz merchandise? They weren’t given any of that. Oh is that so? Hook and Hobbs start throwing hands! And then they start throwing the staff around! Cage and Starks get in on that too, and they tear down the Sting and Darby merch to tear it up!

“You want to disrespect us?! We ain’t done!” Cage TOSSES one of the guys against the truck! And Starks SLAMS another through the table! “First name basis, huh, brother? Ricky Starks and Brian Cage are gonna BEAT YOUR ASS in that Street Fight!”

 

Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Shanna!

The Role Model is making sure she’s sharp for the grudge match with Thunder Rosa she never wanted. But Portugal’s Perfect Athlete has been slowly but surely powering up on AEW Dark! Will Shanna show that hosting The Waiting Room isn’t a replacement for getting in the ring?

The bell rings and Britt doesn’t take Shanna seriously in her DBZ inspired ring gear. The two circle, tie up, and Britt wrenches to a wristlock. Shanna spins, wrenches back and wristlocks.

Britt then drags Shanna back into the LOCKJAW!! But here comes THUNDER ROSA!! Britt lets Shanna go so she and Rebel can retreat! Rosa runs them off, but there won’t be any running at Beach Break! Will Rosa’s wrath break Britt once and for all?

 

MJF finds Sammy Guevara backstage.

He just wants a moment, and says he did NOT tell Wardlow to get involved in last week’s Triple Threat Tag. Wardlow is literally the worst employee MJF has ever had, he docked Wardlow’s pay. No money for War Dog, and MJF promises that it’ll never happen again. Sammy asks if MJF is done. Does MJF think Sammy is stupid? Sammy sees what’s going on, even though MJF has everyone else fooled. Congratulations, though, on being a great manipulator. One of the best, really. Round of applause! Hats off to MJF. But Sammy sees what MJF is up to. Is that so? Yes, it is.

MJF asks Sammy if he really wants to play it this way. Sammy isn’t playing. The two stare down, but MJF backs away. Will the differences between these two be what tears The Inner Circle apart?

 

AEW sets the field for the Beach Break Tag Team Battle Royal!

Top Flight, Private Party, Jurassic Express, FTR, The Acclaimed, The Dark Order’s Evil Uno & Stu Grayson, and ALL THREE duos within The Inner Circle, are in the match for a shot at the titles at Revolution! But surprisingly, so are The Young Bucks! That means if Matt & Nick Jackson win, they choose who they face at the PPV! Will the Bucks take their fate into their own hands?

 

AEW also sets some of the Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament First Round matches!

NWA Women’s World Champion, Serena Deeb, takes on the returning and inaugural AEW Women’s Champion, Riho! What a powerful first match in a surely star-studded bracket! Who else from both the United States and Japan will be competing for a shot at Hikaru Shida?

 

Backstage interview with “The Elite!”

Dasha knows it has been five YEARS since these four have been in a ring together, how are they feeling? Karl Anderson says for the first time in those five years, it is a “full blown Bullet Club Party!” Tonight, they take out the Dark Order and what else? #BigLG says if we’re gonna Biz Cliz, then they gotta Biz Cliz softly! Gyrate! Then next week at Beach Break, they BEAT UP REY FENIX! BEAT UP PAC! And their favorite thing ever, BEAT UP JON MOXLEY! So pumped up! Are the Bucks down? Oh yeah, just as pumped, just as jazzed, but uh… Just as long as “that mark stooge, Creepy Uncle Don” doesn’t get involved.

Whoa, c’mon, now, Young Bizzles, you gotta understand. Relax about Donaconda. Last week, they and Kenny took out Pentagon for them! That was all Don’s idea. Well no one asked you guys to do that! But now Kenny Omega himself walks in, and he high fives the Good Brothers. Is he interrupting something? Sorta. Well maybe they need to talk about something later. Callis comes by with a BIG bandage on his face! What is that? Hey, we all know the Bucks assaulted him- No they did not! Take that off! Omega gets the Bucks to leave Callis alone and the music hits, it’s time for the main event!

8 Man Tag: The Young Bucks & The Good Brothers VS The Dark Order!

The AEW World and Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions are joining forces, but it’s not exactly a happy reunion of The Bullet Club. A lot of the tension and drama comes from the fact Don Callis is in Kenny Omega’s ear and trying to direct his life. Will Matt & Nick be able to work with Gallows & Anderson against Uno, Stu, Reynolds & Silver?

The teams sort out, and Uno starts against Machine Gun. They tie up, go around, Anderson wrenches to a wristlock but Uno slips through to headlock. Anderson powers out, but Uno runs him over! Uno brushes off, things speed up and Anderson leaps into an atomic drop! Roll up, TWO!! Anderson gets away but Uno stomps a hand! Uno bends fingers, wrenches the wrist then tags in Silver! Anderson gets away but Number 4 calls out the big man! Johnny Hungy for some Doc Gallows and Gallows tags in! Gallows laughs at Silver, and calls for a test of strength just out of reach. Silver gets face to… well, chest, with Gallows, but Gallows kneels to be on Silver’s level! Sliver fires off forearms!

Silver fires up, runs but Anderson gets a cheap shot in! And then blames it on Nick! Silver DECKS Nick, Gallows ROCKS Silver! Gallows tags in Matt, they mug Silver, then Matt throws haymakers. Matt rakes Silver’s back, whips him to ropes but Silver holds ropes! Reynolds tags in, they bait Matt in to shoulder and slingshot sunset flip! Matt slips out, Reynolds runs and flying elbows! And then dropkicks! Reynolds kicks up and fans fire up as he goes after Matt with forearms! Reynolds whips, Nick tags in and Matt slides under to whip back, Double hip toss and handspring dropkicks from Bucks to Reynolds! Then double dropkicks for Uno!

Nick SHINING WIZARDS Reynolds, BULLDOG DROPKICK COMBO! Nick drags Reynolds up, whips him to a corner, then tags in Anderson. Anderson tags in Gallows, the Club blasts the Dark Order, then Nick whips Matt to forearm Reynolds! Nick adds a clothesline, Anderson adds the rocket kick, then Gallows corner splashes! Back suplex to the ALLEY OOP and the neckbreaker! It’s just like old times as they all Too Sweet! Gallows drags Reynolds to the corner, tags Matt in and Matt brings Reynolds up. Reynolds fires off hands in return, runs, but Anderson trips him up! Matt runs but Uno trips him up! It’s all fair isn’t it?

Reynolds scrambles, Nick gets his legs but Reynolds kicks him away! Tag to Stu and he springboard crossbodies! Stu dropkicks Gallows’ legs out, dodges Matt and dropkicks again! Nick gets in, misses, and Stu counters superkick to a leg hook and HALF ‘N’ HALF! Anderson gets in to hit Stu and throws him out but Stu ROCKS him back! Stu springboards to dropkick Gallows! Anderson runs into an URENAGE! Stu keeps moving as he goes to a corner and climbs up! FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Anderson survives but Stu drags Anderson up to the corner. Tag to Uno as AEW goes picture in picture.

Uno and Stu get Anderson up but Gallows distracts! The ref also says he didn’t see Uno tag in so he’s not legal! Anderson shoves Stu into Gallows’ fireman’s carry and FLAPJACK! Gallows exits as Anderson covers, TWO! Anderson keeps Stu down, tags in Nick and Nick stomps Stu. Nick drags Stu up, snapmares him then tags in Mat. Fist drop and senton combo! Matt brings Stu up, snap suplexes him, then covers, TWO! Matt keeps on Stu with a chinlock and grinds him down. Stu endures, fights up and throws body shots, but Matt bumps him off buckles! Tag to Gallows and Gallows throws heavy hands from all sides!

Tag to Nick, Gallows and Nick mug Stu, and Nick DECKS Stu with a right! Nick clamps on with a facelock and he grinds Stu down. Stu endures, fights back up, throws body shots, but Nick clubs him! Nick whips, but Stu catches Nick to a fireman’s carry, and SWINGING FACEBUSTER! The Bullet Club gets in to BLAST the Dark Order corner again, stranding Stu! Matt and the Good Brothers mug Uno and the Beaver Boys, then they all set up by the apron! But Uno, Reynolds and Silver slip out of the triple apron bombs to RAM all three men into railing!

AEW returns to single picture as Nick snapmares Stu and runs, only for Stu to duck the Penalty Kick! Kip up and PELE! Stu crawls, hot tag to Silver! Silver rallies on Nick with big clotheslines! Silver whips, back drops Nick and fires up! Nick hobbles around, Silver whips him again but Nick holds ropes. Silver runs in, Nick puts him on the apron but Silver sees him go up the corner and GAMANGIRIS him down! Silver then CANNONBALLS into Anderson, BLASTS Gallows and BOOTS Matt!! Silver gets in but Nick catches him for a backslide. Silver slips out to fire off kicks and then a BRAIN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Nick survives but fans say “This is Awesome!”

Tag to Uno, he brings Nick up to a fireman’s carry but Nick slips out! Uno blocks the kick, hands it to the ref and hits a neckbreaker! Uno hurries up top now, and SWANTON FLOPS! Tag to Matt, he shoulders into Uno then slides under. Matt gets around Stu, and gets both the OG for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! The Beaver Boys attack, whip but Matt dodges to DOUBLE LARIAT! Matt is fired up now and he runs to clothesline Silver! Then one for Reynolds! One for Silver but he dodges to KICK! ROLLING ELBOW, ENZIGURI, STUNNER, GERMAN! The Beaver Blitz! Uno and Stu hit FATALITY!! Cover, but Anderson breaks it!!

Good Brothers brawl with Beaver Boys and throw them out, then Uno tags Stu! Nick SUPERKICKS Uno then SUPERKICKS Stu! Nick builds speed as the Dark Order regroups, for the ESCALARA! Nick brings Stu up, Anderson has Reynolds, DOUBLE APRON BOMB! No wait, TRIPLE because Gallows does the same to Silver! They put Stu in, Bucks and Good Brothers line up the shot, “TOO SWEET!” QUADRUPLE SUPERKICK!! Cover, but Uno breaks it!! Uno saves the match but Gallows ROCKS him! MAGIC KILLER! The Bucks have Stu, gut wrench and springboard, MELZTER DRIVER!! Cover, the Elite wins!

Winners: The Young Bucks & The Good Brothers, by pinfall

Whether you like it or not, the Bullet Club boys took down The Dark Order as a unified unit! And Matt gets the mic to say that next week at Beach Break, whoever wins the Tag Team Battle Royal gets a shot at the AEW World Tag titles at Revolution! But if you haven’t heard, the Bucks are in that match, too! That means if they win, they handpick whoever they want to face! And think about it. It could be anyone. They look at the Good Brothers, and the Good Brothers Too Sweet that idea! But then REY FENIX gets in and springboards to missile dropkick the Bucks!

The Good Brothers attack Fenix and drag him up, but Fenix fights out of Magic Killer! And Moxley is here to CLOBBER Gallows! Fenix FLIES to take Anderson out! And some railing, too! But Omega rushes in to go after Moxley, only to get a kick and the PARADIGM SHIFT!! The Elite were standing tall, but the Maniac and the Firebird fired the first shots! Will they and Pac avenge Penta El Zero M on the road to Revolution?


My Thoughts:

A great episode that was both go-home to Beach Break but also a step towards Revolution in March. Archer VS Kingston was good but one-sided until The Fam came out with Jake the Snake as their hostage. Kingston wins to extend the feud, I have a feeling the blow-off, in whatever form it takes, will be for Revolution. While Death Triangle is focused on The Elite, I think they can easily circle back to The Fam for the PPV and have something really wild. Sting and Darby had a decent promo, Team Taz had a decent promo in response, but the build just hasn’t felt that exciting for what it’s setting up. I hope the Street Fight is really, really good to make up for some of that.

Y2MJF VS Varsity Blondes was a lot of fun, and there was a lot of energy with The Inner Circle all ringside to have their parts to play. Naturally Y2MJF wins, they can’t lose their first time in a 2v2. Though it is an interesting move for AEW to put all the combinations, from Y2MJF to Sammy-Hager to Santana-Ortiz in the battle royal. I suppose AEW as a company doesn’t have to follow the Inner Circle’s self-imposed edict, but that perhaps means the Inner Circle all work together until the end, where in theory, MJF and Jericho would want the other two teams to bow out and eliminate themselves. The tension between MJF and Sammy will surely keep that from happening, so maybe we get the Inner Circle break-up already.

It makes a lot of sense for Red Velvet to take Brandi’s place in what was obviously going to be the mixed tag of the Nightmare Family VS Shaq & Jade. Velvet was tied into the story with Brandi, Jade and the Vicious Vixens, so this is a very good adjustment. Hangman VS Nemeth was good but a bit of a shame that it was really just the vehicle towards a story of Hardy and Hangman. I wonder if Private Party will have a part to play in this, such as warning Hangman about the ridiculous manager contracts Hardy put on them. And I would think The Dark Order also plays a part in that story since they still want Hangman for them, and maybe by Revolution, we learn who Hangman joins.

Jungle Boy VS Dax Harwood was an incredible match! Might have even been match of the night because of how close it was. There was great character work and story with Luchasaurus going back and forth with Cash and Tully, and great everything with JB and Dax in the ring. JB winning is big, but then FTR takes Luchasaurus’ horns to stand tall in their own way. With the battle royal determining Revolution challengers, there’s still a lot of story for Jurassic Express and FTR to have, and maybe the blow-off winners get their shot at say Fyter Fest or maybe Double or Nothing.

Britt VS Shanna was a good match, but of course Britt as a Heel needs Rebel to help her. That does help keep Shanna strong in a way, but Britt goes in with the momentum against Rosa. Rebel is probably how Britt wins against Rosa, too, and that could get Britt a spot in the Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament. Serena Deeb VS Riho being announced as a first round match up is great, but that honestly feels like it should’ve been a later round match. At the same time, Serena has her own title to fall back on, so it’s probably just the best possible way to get eyes on this tournament and to get Riho back into things in AEW.

We got a lot of great stuff out of the story with Omega and The Elite. Moxley had a good promo, Pac had a really good promo, and the promo before the main event was great. Callis is definitely faking or at least exaggerating what happened with him and the Bucks just to get Omega to turn against them. And so far, Bucks and Good Brothers being on good terms is the right move to me. The issue is with Callis, not them, but perhaps when push comes to shove, Gallows & Anderson take Callis’ side.

At the same time, I like that the Bucks already teased a match with Good Brothers for tag titles, that’s a good tease for Revolution. Moxley and Fenix going after The Elite to stand tall probably means Omega and Good Brothers stand tall at Beach Break to further the Bullet Club Civil War between AEW and Impact, but I wonder if any other former Club members get involved. Will Hangman have a change of heart and rejoin The Elite? Will Cody at least be asked? Will someone from Bullet Club NJPW show up in AEW to also establish that crossover? The various possibilities are all really fun so hopefully we get that going into the Summer.

My Score: 9.3/10

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 avoids the headlock to facelock, but Bryan puts Dax on the ropes. The ref counts, Bryan lets off, but Dax ducks the kick! Dax and Bryan stare down and fans cheer this opening exchange. Bryan and Dax tie up again, Dax headlocks but Bryan powers out. Dax runs Bryan over, keeps moving, but Bryan drops.

Dax slide sunder the haymaker but swings into a takedown! Dax slips free to step through the legs! Bryan scrambles around and gets the ROPEBREAK! 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! Bryan whips corner to corner but Dax reverses, only for Bryan to go up and over. Things keep moving, Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges but into a waistlock. O’Conner Roll, TWO! Dax goes up the corner to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Dax CHOPS Bryan again! Dax whips, Bryan reverses but Dax KICKS the back drop! Dax runs in but Bryan whips him out! 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! Bryan staggers to another corner but Dax follows him over to UPPERCUT! Dax UPPERCUTS again, then CHOPS again! Dax even hurt his hand on that one! Dax drags Bryan up again, to whip corner to corner. 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!!

Bryan hurries to the apron and Dax runs in, but Bryan jumps over! FLYING KNEE! Direct hit and both men are down on the outside! The ring count climbs, Dax and Bryan stand. Bryan CHOPS, CHOPS, and CHOPS! Bryan puts Dax in, climbs up the corner himself, and fans rally back up. But Dax ROCKS Bryan first! Dax climbs up, brings Bryan up, but Bryan throws body shots. Bryan slips out to trip Dax up! Dax lands on his ax, Bryan climbs up for HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! The corner came gets a close-up look as those shots hit again and again! Bryan then stands Dax up for a SUPER BACK- CROSSBODY!! Dax turns it but Bryan rolls it! TWO!!!

Fans are thunderous while Bryan and Dax are both down on the mat! A standing count starts, both slowly rise, and they crawl to each other. Dax gives a junkyard dog headbutt, but Bryan gives it back! Dax headbutts again, but Bryan HEADBUTTS and HEADBUTTS and HEADBUTTS as he stands up! Bryan whips, Dax reverses and wrenches and short arm LARIATS! But Bryan stays up and shakes his head! Dax LARIATS again, but Bryan still stays up! Dax swings again, Bryan dodges and LARIATS! But Dax stays up! Bryan LARIATS again, but Dax just eggs him on! They DOUBLE LARIAT, and DOUBLE LARIAT and DOUBLE LARIAT again!

Fans fire up as the lariats turn to haymakers, and then both men drop to their feet! Indy hopes they “Fight Forever!” but this has to end somehow. Dax CLOBBERS Bryan point blank!! But Bryan gets up to LARIAT Dax! Dax and Bryan DOUBLE LARIAT again, and they both flop to the floor! Indy gives a standing ovation, and a standing count starts. “This is Awesome!” as Bryan stands. Bryan’s chest is almost as red as his tights, but then he BUZZ- NO, Dax blocks! Dax JABS, then gets Bryan up for a SLINGSHOT- NO, Bryan RANAS it! But Dax sunset flips that! TWO!! BUZZSAW!! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up as both men are down again. A standing count, Bryan and Dax slowly sit up. Bryan stands up to KICK! And KICK! And KICK! Dax ducks the buzzsaw to GERMAN SUPLEX, but Bryan lands on his feet! Bryan ducks, dodges, BUSAIK- NO! Dax blocks the knee to SLINGSHOT BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!! But Dax has the legs and ties them up! SHARPSHOOTER!! Bryan endures, turns slightly, but Dax uses Bryan’s own kneepad for extra leverage! Bryan still reaches out, ROPEBREAK! Dax lets Bryan go and he drags Bryan away from ropes. Dax steps through but Bryan blocks to drag Dax into a cradle! TWO, Dax has the cradle, TWO!

Bryan has the cradle back, TWO! Dax has it again, TWO! Bryan, TWO!! Dax, TWO!! Bryan shifts to LEBELL LOCK!! Fans fire up as Dax endures! Dax reaches out but he’s so far away, he TAPS! Bryan wins!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Dax tried to slay the American Dragon, but he could not! Bryan may very well be the best wrestler in the world, but he nods and applauds the valiant effort of Dax Harwood. Will Dax still be in the conversation of greatest of all time?

 

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.

 

Willow Nightingale VS Anna Jay “A S” w/ Tay Melo!

Things are getting fierce in the invigorated AEW Women’s Division, and the always positive powerhouse is positively gonna pummel the Star of the Show! Will Willow keep the energy going to the top of the rankings? Or will the Queenslayer choke her out?

The bell rings and Anna smirks as she circles with Willow. Anna avoids Willow but Willow clamps onto an arm! Anna whips free but Willow runs her over! Fans fire up as Willow runs, rolls then runs Anna over! Willow flexes, drags Anna up and short arm LARIATS! And short arm LARIATS again! Anna ELBOWS back but swings into a BIG back suplex! Fans fire up as Willow runs to SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Anna goes to a corner, fans rally for Willow and she runs in to back body block! Willow does a dance, whips Anna corner to corner, then runs in to back body block again! Anna dodges the lariat to ROCK Willow, run and HEEL KICK!

Anna shoves Willow down, goes up the corner, and leaps for a BLOCKBUSTER! Anna mocks Willow before the cover, ONE!! Anna is upset as AEW goes picture in picture.

Willow gets to ropes but Anna CHOKES her! The ref counts, Anna lets off and paces about. Willow throws body shots but Anna CLUBS her down. Anna CHOKES Willow, the ref counts, but Tay is also talking trash. Anna lets off and Tay gets a cheap shot in! Willow swipes at Tay but she gets away, and then Anna bumps Willow off buckles. Anna stalks Willow, CLUBS her down, then shouts at the fans to shut up. Willow kicks Anna, Anna ROCKS Willow, and Anna whips Willow corner to corner. Anna runs in to back elbow Willow down! Anna talks more trash, covers, TWO! Fans rally but Anna bumps Willow off buckles.

Anna ROCKS Willow again, whips her to ropes, then CLOBBERS her with an elbow! Anna soaks up the heat while Willow crawls. Anna CHOKES Willow on the mat, the ref counts and Anna lets off to then cover, ONE!! Anna is annoyed at Willow’s toughness, and she CLUBS Willow down. Anna bumps Willow off buckles, digs her boots in, then lets off at 4. Tay applauds as Anna snapmares Willow for elbows! Anna clamps on a chinlock and she squeezes tight. But Willow endures and fans rally up. Willow fights up, only for Anna to wrangle her down. Willow fights up again, throws body shots, and AEW returns to single picture.

Willow ROCKS Anna, but Anna ROCKS Willow. Willow ROCKS Anna, so Anna ROCKS Willow! Fans rally as the shots go back and forth, and Willow CHOPS and ROCKS and CHOPS! Anna KNEES low, whips, but Willow reverses. Willow runs in to back body block in the corner, and LARIAT! Snapmare, run and BOOT! Fans fire up with Willow and she whips Anna to ropes, for a SPINEBUSTER! High stack, TWO!! Anna survives but Willow drags her back up. Willow fireman’s carries, Anna slips off to waistlock but Willow elbows free. Willow runs, into a spin and wrench and HOOK KICK! Then a Gory Especial, GORY BOMB! Cover, TWO!!

Willow survives and upsets TayJay! Fans fire up and cheer Willow on as she rises up. Anna shouts she’s gonna choke her out! QUEENSLAYER!! But BACKPACK SENTON turns that round!

Cradle, TWO!! Anna hurries but Willow BOOTS and LARIATS! Fans fire up and Willow drags Anna back up! Gut wrench, DOCTOR BOMB!! Cover, Willow wins!

Winner: Willow Nightingale, by pinfall

No weeping Willow here! She’s all smiles as she gets another great win! Will Willow will her way to a title opportunity in time for the holidays?

But wait! TayJay aren’t done having a bad time, cuz RUBY SOHO Is back! Tay thinks she’s coming from the ramp, but nope! Ruby slips in from the crowd! Tay turns around, and Ruby tackles her! Ruby rains down fists! Anna returns but Ruby DECKS her! Tay ROCKS Ruby, but Ruby just grins! Ruby chases Tay out of the ring and brings her around to HEADBUTT! Tay wobbles, Ruby brings Tay around again, into DESTINATION UNKNOWN to the ramp! Ruby sits with Tay and gives her a kiss on the forehead. Is the Runaway going to run through the Brazilian Goddess?

 

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!! Fenix flops out of the ring, Penta kicks Omega and tucks! But Omega slips out, the Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK Penta!

Omega hurries to SNAP DRAGON! Penta flounders, the ref is finally up, and fans are thunderous as Omega drags Penta back up. POWERBOMB, flip over and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, but Pac breaks it! Nick kicks Pac and sends him out. Omega goes corner to corner but Penta BOOTS him away! Nick runs in but is put on the apron! Matt runs in, but he’s also put on the apron. Omega runs back in but Penta dodges so Omega takes the DOUBLE ENZIGURI! Penta SUPERKICKS Omega! Fenix SUPERKICKS Matt! Pac BOOTS Nick! Death Triangle sets Omega up in a drop zone, Death Triangle all climb the same corner!

Fans fire up as Death Triangle takes aim at an Elite each! Penta DIVING DOUBLE STOMPS while Fenix and Pac DOUBLE ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Penta hauls Omega up, “CERO! MIEDO!” Tuck and FEAR FACTOR!!! Cover, TWO?!?! Penta cannot believe it! Tag to Pac and “This is Awesome!” as Pac goes up top. Nick runs in to get Omega to safety! Nick then ducks under Pac’s leap and SUPERKICKS him on the return! Nick aims at Penta but Penta blocks his superkick! Fenix SUPERKICKS Nick! Matt SUPERKICKS Fenix! And SUPERKICKS Penta! Matt hits NORTHERN LIGHTS on Penta, and starts up the Polar Express!

But Fenix LEAPS in, only for Matt to catch him! DOUBLE NORTHERN LIGHTS! Fans are thunderous as Pac BOOTS Matt down! Omega staggers to a corner, Pac runs in, and he BOOTS Omega! Pac puts Omega up top, climbs up after him, and then stands Omega up. Omega fights the superplex to fire off forearms and elbows! Pac clings to the ropes to stay up! They get forehead to forehead, but Omega fires off forearm after forearm! Pac just keeps taking those shots! Pac HEADBUTTS Omega in return! The brace might’ve helped in that! Pac stands Omega up, for a SUPER FALCON ARROW!!! Cover, TWO!!!

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

Fenix CLOBBERS Matt on the outside, Pac and Omega slowly sit up in the ring. Nick coaches Omega, but Pac drags him to the Death Triangle corner. Pac stomps Omega, kicks him, then drags him up to bump off buckles. Tag to Fenix, he snapmares Omega and BUZZSAWS! Pac KICKS, Penta KICKS, and then Death Triangle TRIPLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Jackknife cover, but Nick breaks it! Fenix bumps Omega off buckles, CLUBS him, then tags Penta. Penta turns Omega around to CHOP! Omega staggers but Penta brings him back.

Pac kicks Omega around, taunts him, then ROCKS him! Omega ROCKS Pac back! Pac ROCKS Omega, Omega ROCKS Pac, and they go back and forth! Pac fires off a flurry and Omega wobbles! Pac pushes Omega around, Omega throws body shots but they’re a bit weak. Dynamite returns to single picture as Pac eggs Omega on. Omega fires stronger body shots now, so Pac SOBATS! Pac runs, but into a V-TRIGGER!

Pac wobbles against ropes, Omega runs in but Pac dodges to SNAP GERMAN! But Omega is up to LARIAT Pac down! Fans are thunderous and their teams are chomping at the bit! Omega and Pac crawl, reach out, hot tags to Fenix and Nick! They DOUBLE LARIAT, and again, then Fenix shoves, but Nick dodges the rolling sobat!

The Bastard is furious as Matt survives again. Pac drags Matt back into the drop zone then climbs up. BLACK ARROW, into Matt’s knees!!! Cradle, THE ELITE WIN!!!

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?


My Thoughts:

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!

Published

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?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 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.

QUICK NOTES

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.
