8 Man Tag: The Young Bucks & SoCal Uncensored VS The Acclaimed & The Hybrid2!
Matt & Nick Jackson enter with their friends, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian, and they start the New Year’s Smash right with this huge tag match! But will they be able to shut up Max Caster, Anthony Bowens, Jack Evans & Angelico to make 2021 even better?
Bowens has upgraded the 5 Tool Boombox to also shout out Snoop Dogg, and Caster of course has the mic to give us a new diss track. “Yo! Yo! Yo yo! The Bucks cheated us, say yo, you all saw it! We should be the champs, and yo, y’all thought it! We should be fine but they won’t make ’em pay, so I’m like TK, yo whatever you say. Just don’t be mad when Acclaimed starts takin’. Punch ’em in the chest, yo, I call that heartbreaking. We the John Cena guys? That’s so petty! But we John Cena, the Young Bucks’re Janetties!” OH~!
But Caster ain’t done! “Kazarian, your rhymes are wack! That shit sounds worse than a Snoop Dogg track! Doggy style is a thing of the past! I’m a make a new fetish: us whippin’ yer ass, BITCH!” That was hot stuff, but are the 5 Tool Player and the last of the true hybrids going to all pay for the check Caster’s mouth just wrote?
The teams sort out, Bowens starts and he calls out The Fallen Angel. The fans are fired up for SCU as they circle, and Daniels DECKS Caster!

Angelico throws Matt out but Nick CHOPS him, and goes LUCHA LIBRE~! Nick gets both TH2 to send them both out! And then Nick goes to the corner to ESCALARA! Direct hit takes out TH2 and Caster again!

Caster and TH2 turn things around on the Bucks and send them into railing! Bowens clubs Daniels, Evans goes to the apron, FLYING SCREW KICK! TH2 puts Daniels in for Bowens, he stomps Daniels around as fans boo and jeer. Bowens drags Daniels up, tags Caster, and The Acclaimed double whip and trip him to drop an elbow and a basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Caster tries again, TWO! Caster grinds Daniels down, drags him over, and Angelico tags in to stomp Daniels down. Fans rally for SCU but Angelico wrenches to an elbow breaker.
Tag to Evans, springboard DUMDUM STOMP SLAM! Evans jackknife covers, TWO! Daniels crawls but Evans clubs him down. Evans taunts Kaz and the Bucks then drags Daniels up to bump him off buckles. Tag to Bowens and they mug Daniels. Bowens rains down rights on Daniels’ head, covers, TWO! Bowens drags Daniels up, tags Caster and then he hops up to hit a BLOCKBUSTER! Caster goes up and drops the elbow! Tag to Evans, PHOENIX SPLASH! Angelico tags and climbs, but he hops down to La Magistrol, for a crucifix stretch! Evans and The Acclaimed knock Kaz and the Bucks down while Daniels endures the Navarro Dos Mil! Daniels moves around, and gets the ropebreak!
The ref counts, Angelico lets go at 4, and he drags Daniels around to stomp him. Tag to Bowens and Bowens tells Daniels he’s a fool! Daniels elbows Bowens back and then swings, into a waistlock. Daniels switches, Bowens switches, repeat. Bowens breaks the loop with an elbow, but he runs into BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Daniels can’t hold the cover but he and Bowens crawl, hot tags to Evans and Kaz! Kaz dodges Evans, DECKS Angelico, and rallies with lariats! Kaz flips Evans to CHOP him down! Kaz whips Evans, Evans reverses and Caster grabs Kaz. Evans runs in but Kaz moves and the dropkick hits Caster! Kaz GERMAN SUPLEXES and bridges Evans, TWO!
Fans fire up with Kaz as he drags Evans. Kaz dragon sleepers, suplexes but Evans slips out. Evans shoves Kaz but Kaz DECKS Angelico! Kaz turns around into a FLYING KICK! STANDING SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO! Evans CLOBBERS Kaz, drags him over and tags in Bowens. They mug Kaz, double whip, but Kaz crisscrosses them into each other! Hot tag to Matt Jackson!

Winners: SoCal Uncensored & The Young Bucks, by pinfall
Rivals and friends make for an amazing combination, and Kaz gets the mic to say, “That is how you start off a year!” Nothing like getting a W on a New Year’s Smash version of Dynamite! But here’s the deal. SCU laid down the gauntlet on themselves. The next time they lose 2v2, they’re done as a tag team forever! BUT that is not happening!
Daniels takes the mic and says if this is their last hurrah, then the Bucks need to know, SCU has their back any time they need it. Except for when they battle for the tag team titles! SCU doesn’t just want those belts, they want to win them off the best tag team on the planet! The Bucks shake hands with SCU, but which happens first? SCU making it to the titles? Or falling to their own ultimatum?
Jon Moxley heads to the ring!
The Maniac is finally back in the flesh after losing the AEW World Championship in that Don Callis screwjob. Jericho’s the only one upset about him being here, and Moxley gets a mic to speak. “You may have expected me to come out here tonight, cussing up a storm, screaming bloody murder about the events that transpired on December 2nd. But where I come from, life isn’t fair and complaining, bitching and moaning is largely a waste of time. This is an unforgiving sport in an unforgiving world, and sometimes you are on the bad end of a bad deal.” When that happens, sometimes all you can do is endure, grit your teeth, and take it on the chin. But you also plant your feet firmly in the ground, stare down adversity and never back down!
So no, Moxley isn’t going anywhere, but what is he going to do about Kenny Omega “and that guy he’s hanging around with that looks like a used car salesman?” For Moxley, he sees things black ‘n’ white and has zero tolerance for shitty people. So the appropriate response would be to run down Kenny and “that a**hole, Callis,” and beat them BOTH to a bloody pulp with a crowbar! But, tonight, the AEW World Championship is on the line. Moxley gave his blood and soul to protect that title’s integrity. Rey Fenix has his opportunity that he scratched and clawed for over 13 YEARS, with his own reckless abandon, blood, guts, and heart, “the way it’s supposed to be!”
Moxley says it is not his right to interfere with another man’s destiny, but he warns Omega. “You are not safe, you will never be safe. Just remember: I will get even, and then some. When I say I’m going to do something, I do it. When I have a responsibility, I uphold it. When I make a commitment, I see it through.” It doesn’t matter how long it takes, Moxley will forever be the Bogeyman that lurks over Omega’s shoulder. Moxley promises him that one day, Omega will look into the eyes of the devil and beg for mercy when he realizes he crossed the wrong guy! A powerful ultimatum from the Death Rider! But when will that day come that he makes the Cleaner pay?
Backstage interview with Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy.
Clearly Trent is still injured, but what is the update on his condition? Trent’s torn pec will keep him out four to five months. Miro then comes over to rubs that in. What a long time! Miro says that sure sucks for Trent, but it sucks for Chuck, too. That means Best Friends is on the shelf for four to five months. Because obviously Trent is the leader of this little group. But Chuckie can’t always hid behind their mascot here, he has to man up! If he can’t, that’s fine. Miro can be the new best friend. Chuck can fold Miro’s clothes, wash his car, all that.
Chuck gets it, Trent was Miro’s “young boy.” But Chuck also spent time in Japan and knows how that works. Chuck is not going to be that for Miro. But how about this? Next week, New Year’s Smash Night Two, Chuck beats Miro’s “goofy ass.” Miro was hoping Chuck would ask. Make it more interesting. Since Chuck won’t be Miro’s “friend,” after Miro beats Chuck’s ass, Chuck becomes the Young Boy until Beach Break. Fine, whatever makes this over with faster. Chuck’s dumber than he looks. See you next Dynamite!
Jake Hager VS Wardlow!
It would seem The Inner Circle is NOT fine, as the Big Hurt and the War Dog still have the need to throw down! As the rest of the faction watches ringside, who proves themselves the biggest and the baddest behemoth in the Inner Circle?
The bell rings and the two start shoving. They tie up, are in a deadlock, so they break. Fans rally and duel as the two circle.

Fans fire up as Wardlow stares Hager down. Hager trips Wardlow, hammers away, but Wardlow kicks Hager away. Wardlow gets around, waistlocks but Hager elbows free. Hager stalks Wardlow to a corner to throw big body shots. Hager whips corner to corner, Wardlow reverses and storms over to throw haymakers!

They collide yet again, but still neither falls! Wardlow swings, Hager dodges, Wardlow hurdles?! And then clotheslines Hager and himself out of the ring!
Both men land on their feet! And start throwing hands! Wardlow ROCKS Hager, but Hager comes back, DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES finally knock both men down!

MJF is the most pleased as Wardlow has been his muscle since day one. Hager is frustrated, but he gives a fist bump to Wardlow! Does this squash the beef between the biggest men in the Inner Circle?
Private Party is pumped backstage!
Isiah Kassidy tells Marq Quen that it’s 2021, a new year, new beginnings. They’ll start this off right! He has the gin, but Quen doesn’t have the juice? SNOOP DOGG HAS IT!! Snoop wants to celebrate! But Matt Hardy shows up and has the contracts written up. He is so happy they’re going through with this, and promises Private Party that they will not regret this. Hardy wants them to trust him. They do, but they want to know what was up with him bringing in a chair for that match. Don’t fixate on things like that, this is about winning! They want to be kings, right? Kings like Snoop, right? So you gotta win! Kings are winners! And they have the untapped potential that he will bring it out. 33% is a hefty manager’s fee, but it will pay off.
Before Private Party signs the contracts, they have some things he should look out. Quen hands over the conditions, Hardy unfolds the paper, and he reads. Yes, look, last page. Well okay then. This looks good to them. Hardy can’t wait for Private Party to be iconic. Snoop hopes to be invited. Oh they’ve got him. And all those third party things like Twitch and Cameo? Hardy isn’t a monster, they can still do those as much as they want. Word? Word! Hardy takes these to his lawyer and says they’ll meet back up for dinner. Will the #HardyParty be even bigger in 2021?
AEW holds an official weigh-in for next week’s TNT Championship match!
Team Taz heads out first, Brian Cage holding the FTW Championship up high. He wants to be a double champion, though perhaps unofficially, but just how much of an advantage will he have over Darby Allin? We find out after the break.
AEW returns and Darby makes his entrance, with the brand new design for the TNT title in hand! Tony Schiavone presides over this, explaining that the red belt edition was retired and handed down to Brodie Lee Junior last week. Now the new black belt is on the line as we have this weigh-in. Taz asks why Cage is weighing in first. As the challenger? Yes. Well obviously Cage is bigger, but is Schiavone making the rules now? Cage goes first, and Schiavone says he weighs in at 272 pounds. Taz says that’s all solid muscle! Now the champion, Darby, steps up to take his turn. Taz promises no one will bite Darby so go ahead and get on the scale.
Darby stands on the scale, Schiavone adjusts the weights and… It’s 170 pounds! A 100 pound difference! Well obviously! But Taz points out Darby might be even lighter, because he has all this stuff on! The jacket, the chains, the shoes, a metal-studded belt. Darby takes the mic from Schiavone to tell Taz, “You may say this feud has been nine months in the making, but in reality, it’s 27 years. I’ve dealt shit like this from people like you my entire life.” And we all know how this ends tonight, so just get to the fun. Darby gets his skateboard and dares Team Taz to do something! Taz says Schiavone should get himself out of the ring so they can handle business!
“Here’s the deal, Darby! You had a chance-” But the lights go out! The snow, the crow, it’s STIIIIING! Team Taz bails out as Sting shows up from the ramp and has his bat again! Darby and Sting are not intimidated by Team Taz, but will it be the other way around? Taz is getting sick of this! Taz tells Darby that with God as his witness, we crown a NEW TNT Champion, The Machine, “you rotten son of a bitch!!”
MJF has AEW Media following him again.
Hager is still upset and he is hitting whatever is around. MJF knows he feels like a loser, but he’s actually a winner. No one at home is half the athlete Hager is. Not everyone can just get in and get out of a ring like Hager. Hager is still undefeated in the Octagon, so be proud of that. Hager says he almost dropped MJF, but he appreciates MJF checking in on him. But still go so he can vent a bit more. MJF understands and takes his leave. Is MJF, of all people, going to be the glue that holds the Inner Circle together?
Backstage interview with Jurassic Express.
Marko Stunt was “confronted” by “Negative One,” Brodie Jr, but all in good fun. What is next for this trio? Stunt says we all know Jurassic Express likes to have fun, but this isn’t that. “We are on a quest for the AEW Tag Team Championships!” But FTR comes in and asks Stunt why he’s talking about “We, we, we.” Stunt does NOTHING, brings NOTHING to the table, and is a glorified mascot! He lets the dinosaur and Jungle Boy do the dirty work! Maybe Negative One wasn’t just poking fun. Maybe Stunt IS a loser.
Oh is that so? How about Stunt beats their ass next week, taking Luchasaurus’ spot in that tag match next week?! FTR laughs at JB and Stunt against the absolute best team. Fiats versus Ferraris! Challenge accepted! See you later! #TopGuysOut! Tully pats Stunt’s head, but JB holds him back. Will the fury of Fun-Size prove everyone wrong?
Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson & Snoop Dogg VS Matt Sydal!
Marketed as “The Go Big Show match,” and sponsored by it for that matter, this has actually been a long time coming. For all their time in WWE at the same time, and even ROH, these two never had a 1v1 match. Now, as the American Nightmare is growing his franchise and as the third eye opens, who goes big and shows the other who has been the better all along?
The bell rings, Sydal and Cody circle, run the ropes, then tie up. Cody powers Sydal back, Sydal waistlocks but Cody switches. Sydal bucks the roll up off but Cody sweeps the legs to cover.

Sydal whips corner to corner, Cody reverses but Sydal elbows him back. Sydal goes up, moonsaults and manages an arm-drag! Cody ends up in a corner, Sydal runs in to dropkick! Sydal covers, TWO! Coach Snoop is relieved as Cody gets out to the ramp.

Sydal WRECKS Cody with another dropkick, then goes out after him. Sydal stands Cody up, Cody turns things around at the railing, but Sydal dodges and the forearm ROCKS Serpentico! Serpentico flounders up and Luther is furious! Cody explains that was an accident but Sydal puts Cody in.
Sydal climbs up, leaps and crossbodies! Cody rolls through to the SHARPSHOOTER! Sydal endures, fans rally and duel, Sydal powers up and reaches and gets the ropebreak! Cody lets go and Snoop gives some suggestions from Arn Anderson’s play card. Cody stomps Sydal’s leg over and over, then the ribs! AEW goes picture in picture as Cody snapmares and KNEES Sydal down!
Cody drops down to do some push-ups, showing off his conditioning. Snoop gives more signals, basically saying Cody should stay focused. Cody drags Sydal up, wrenches and whips, then knees Sydal down at the ropes. Cody brings Sydal up to scoop and slam! Cody runs to drop a knee like the Nature Boy! Sydal writhes, Snoop unlocks his inner Belichick as he puts up the hood. Cody whips, Sydal reverses and Sydal runs in to elbow Cody, then ENZIGURI! Cody flops down, Sydal covers, TWO! Sydal grows frustrated but he KICKS Cody’s leg out! STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO!
Sydal and Cody grit their teeth as they get up. Sydal CHOPS Cody to a corner, but Cody turns things around to CHOP back! Sydal CHOPS, Cody CHOPS, repeat! They CHOP until Cody kicks low and elbows Sydal on the back! Cody fires himself up, Sydal sits up with a scowl, but Cody drags Sydal up to hoist him up top! Cody clubs Sydal, climbs up behind him, and AEW returns to single picture as Cody dragon sleepers Sydal on the top rope! INVERTED SUPERPLEX! Snoop is fired up with the fans as Cody and Sydal are both down! Cody crawls to a cover, TWO! Sydal survives but Cody gets the legs. Cody drags Sydal to a drop zone, goes back up top, but Sydal gets up to AVOID the moonsault!
Sydal JUMPING KNEES Cody down! Now Sydal heads up top, aims at Cody in the drop zone, and STANDING SHOOTING STARS onto knees! Cody drags Sydal up, inverted DDT! Cover, TWO! Cody goes up top again, Sydal is up and gets under the jump. Sydal comes back, tilt-o-whirl takedown! COBRA CLUTCH CROSSFACE! Cody fights up, elbows free, and ROCKS Sydal with a right! Sydal KICKS, CHOPS and SOBATS! Sydal runs, but Cody clotheslines Sydal and himself out! Both men tumble to the floor but Cody is up first. Cody puts Sydal in, runs and BOOTS, but Sydal ducks it to spin and roundhouse! Cody avoids, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cover, TWO!!
Fans fire up and chant “This is Awesome!” Snoop agrees as Cody drags Sydal up. Sydal slips out of the Inverted Especial to waistlock but Cody switches. Sydal elbows free, then hops up to spin, RANA! Cover, TWO!! Cody narrowly escapes but Sydal ROUNDHOUSES! LIGHTNING SPIRAL!! Cover, TWO!?! Cody survives but Sydal isn’t stopping there! Sydal fires up, and JUMPING KNEE- No, Cody blocks the knee and spins Sydal into the dragon sleeper, for CROSS RHODES!! Cody isn’t done, he drags Sydal up for another CROSS RHODES!! Cover, Cody wins!
Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall
But Serpentico and Luther attack! Chaos Project still took offense to that mishap, and Snoop isn’t sure what to do! Sydal ENZIGURIS Luther! ROUNDHOUSE for Serpentico, and then Cody scoop slams him! But SNOOP wants to go up top?! Sydal lets him, Snoop reaches the top rope, and Cody holds Serpentico in place, for a SNOOP SPLASH! “Cover,” Snoop “wins!” Fans are thunderous as even D O Double G gets big momentum for the Go Big Show!
AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida VS Abadon!
After being haunted and hunted by the Living Dead Girl, the Full Metal Warrior faces her fears and defends her title! Will Shida vanquish the vicious Abadon? Or will the new year begin with a true reign of terror?
The introductions are made, but Abadon rushes Shida at the stage! They brawl, Shida SMACKS Abadon with the kendo stick! But Abadon sits up! Abadon goes after Shida and wants to bite Shida again!

Shida rolls to wrench, then rolls with the wrench, to handspring and basement dropkick! Fans fire up as Shida takes off the scarf to show the marks Abadon left on her neck. Abadon crawls to the apron, Shida goes out and stomps her down!
Shida throws haymakers on Abadon then gets space, to run in and KNEE- NO! Abadon blocks, and BITES Shida’s leg! Shida drags Abadon out to club away on Abadon, but Abadon choke grips and SLAMS Shida into railing! Abadon shrieks like a banshee then drags Shida to the ring. Abadon goes in the ring to stop the count, then goes back out after Shida. Abadon drags Shida under the ring?! The ref tries to stop this, but he hurries under after them! After a few moments, the ref comes out, and Abadon crawls out. Where is Shida?! Is that actual blood in Abadon’s mouth!? Did she eat Shida alive!? Shida crawls out from under the ring, and her neck was the target again!
Abadon throws Shida into the ring, she throws forearms over and over in the corner, then climbs up. SHRIEKING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Tay Conti speaks.
With Anna Jay and the Dark Order by her side, Tay Conti tells NWA Women’s World Champion, Serena Deeb, “I do have a lot of respect for you. But don’t get me wrong. I’m coming for that championship.” Tay gives us a reminder that she is a blue belt in jiujitsu, a blackbelt in judo, and won’t be alone. She’ll have Jay and the Dark Order there to support the NEW NWA Women’s World Champion! Is this a sign that Tay decided to #JoinDarkOrder?
AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Rey Fenix!
It’s the first main event of 2021! The Best Bout Machine was meant to battle the Firebird in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, but injuries forced the Firebird to step down. Death Triangle has confidence in Fenix, and vows the Cleaner’s belt collecting ends now! But this is “the man who in 2020 had more wins than anyone in AEW, and unlike Jon Moxley in 2020, he did not lose a singles match. He has held the AEW World title for 35 days. At this point, many people already consider him the greatest AEW World Champion of all time. His 2017 NJPW match with Okada was just voted the greatest in the history of WrestleKingdom.
“His plans tonight include winning once again, followed by hosting the debut of 2.SHOW on the AEW Video Games YouTube channel immediately following Dynamite. Viewing is available everywhere from Texas to Montana, California to NOOORTH CAROLINA~, which he says does not compare to his hometown of Winnipeg, Manatoba, Canada.

With the introductions already given, the belt is raised, and this epic main event happens after the break!

Omega full nelsons but Fenix pries at the arms to get free. Fenix drop toeholds, hooks the leg, Omega rolls and hooks the leg to SMASH the knee! Omega stomps Fenix, brings him up and wrenches to then drop elbows on the arm. Omega wrenches, hammerlocks, Fenix elbows and Shiranuis for a flying mare! Things speed up, and Omega SPIKE RANAS outta nowhere! Fans are divided but Omega grins as Fenix bails out.
The Terminator Drums start up, Omega builds speed, but Fenix gets in to RANA back! Omega goes to the ramp, then around the way, and fans rally as Fenix builds speed! Fenix fakes Omega out, then BOOTS him down! And springboards to RANA Omega into the railing! Fans fire up more as Fenix goes after Omega with forearms. Fenix puts Omega in, climbs in and runs at the corner, but Omega ducks the springboard sobat! Omega kicks low, hops up, reels Fenix in, and TORNADO DDT’s! But Fenix handsprings through!?

Omega is a bit surprised but he still confidently drags Fenix up. Omega scoops Fenix, and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fenix writhes and rolls to the apron but Omega drags him back in. Omega kicks Fenix around, but Fenix CHOPS back! And CHOPS again! Omega CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS Fenix off his feet! Omega drags Fenix up, waistlocks, and CLUBS him on the back. Fans rally and duel as Omega paces.
Omega drags Fenix up in a waistlock but Fenix elbows. Omega back suplexes, Fenix lands on his feet to dodge and springboard for a FLYING HEADBUTT! Fans fire up and Fenix stumbles, to kick and CHOP and knuckle lock. Fenix goes up, up, but Omega shoves him down! Omega swings but Fenix blocks and CHOPS! Fenix springboards, Omega breaks free but Fenix just jumps around to adjust, springboard missile dropkick! Omega bails out, Fenix builds speed, and DIVES!! Direct hit and they both go into the railing! Fenix somehow doesn’t end up in the front row with the Gunn Club! Fans are thunderous with “THIS IS AWESOME!” as Fenix puts Omega back in!
Fenix drags Omega up, puts him in a corner and CHOPS again! Fenix whips, Omega reverses to fireman’s carry but Fenix fights free! Omega is in a corner, Fenix runs into a back elbow! Omega goes up and over and rolls, but Fenix boots back! Fenix goes up, QUEBRADA GERMAN SUPLEX?! Cover, TWO!!! Fans are loving this as both men slowly rise. Omega goes to an apron, Fenix runs over and goes up, up and DUMDUM STOMPS Omega to the apron! Callis panics and checks on Omega as AEW goes picture in picture!
Fenix flops down to fetch Omega, to send him into railing! Fenix puts Omega in, covers, but they’re in the ropes. Fenix shoves Omega over, covers, ONE!! The delay may have spared Omega but Fenix keeps his focus. Fenix eggs Omega on as he pushes him around. Omega smirks but Fenix CHOPS! Omega CHOPS back!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)
The Firebird got the arm up at 3.01 but that’s too little too late! Omega has conquered another contender, and Callis celebrates with him in the ring. Callis has a mic and he says, “Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve witnessed history.” They’re going to give us something a little extra. Omega beat Fenix, so why not we witness the end of the career of Fenix? Or no, what’s going on backstage? Eddie Kingston and The Fam are beating down the rest of Death Triangle! Kingston sits Pac up while Butcher and Blade continue to mug Pentagon! Kingston winks and Bunny Allie laughs, and Callis sarcastically says, “My goodness!” What an unsafe working environment!
Callis then asks Fenix if he remembers them saying his brother, Penta, wouldn’t be coming to help him. What IS coming for Fenix is a One Winged Angel into the scrapheap! Omega drags Fenix up, but here comes MOXLEY! And a barbed-wire bat!! Callis runs for his life but Omega turns around into a barbed wire BASH! Moxley winds up and tells Callis this is what they get! Callis stays far away as Moxley aims at Omega! But here come THE GOOD BROTHERS!! The Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions and good friends of Kenny Omega’s, Luke Gallows & Karl A0nderson, are here on AEW! And they’re saving Omega by jumping Moxley! They stomp away and rain down fists!
Fans are going nuts, “Too Sweet! WOOP WOOP!” as Gallows & Anderson mug Moxley, and hit MAGIC KILLER!! Callis is fired up and Omega grins as he and the Good Brothers stomp Moxley then mug him more! Anderson fetches the barbed wire bat for Omega, and Omega SLUGS Moxley on the back! And again! And again, and again, and again! But here come the Varsity Blondes, Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr, but they’re no match for a 3v2 like this! Griff gets tossed, then so does BPJ! Shawn Dean and Fuego del Sol try but they get DECKED before even getting in the ring! More of AEW’s roster tries, from Danny Limelight to Baron Black to Louie Valle, but they all get tossed!
Omega SLUGS Ryzin, then dares anyone else to try, while Gallows POWERBOMBS Fuego through a table!! Gallows uppercuts Limelight down, stalks up to push BPJ and Griff around, and then he regroups with Anderson. The Good Brothers sit Moxley up and Omega winds up to SLUG Moxley in the chest! Omega compliments Moxley on making him flip the switch, and then he rubs the belt in Moxley’s face. Moxley DECKS Anderson but Omega SLUGS him again! Anderson and Gallows stomp Moxley down, and even use their own title belts to knock him down!
But now the YOUNG BUCKS run out! Friends to all of these guys, the Bucks want an explanation! Callis says this was all self-defense because Moxley brought the bat in! The bat is tossed aside, but then the Varsity Blondes grab Omega! They expect the AEW Tag Team Champions to fight on their side, but as Gallows CLOBBERS BPJ, Matt SUPERKICKS Griff!! Again, Omega is still their friend, but that doesn’t mean this is “the band” getting back together. The Bucks still want an explanation, but Omega simply throws up the Too Sweet! The Good Brothers do it with him, but what about the Bucks? Nick and Matt… THROW IT UP!! Is Bullet Club truly for life?!
Holy crap! Given the circumstances, the great tribute episode we got to Brodie Lee/Jon Huber, this New Year’s Smash event was worth the wait. We got a great 8 Man Tag to open between some great teams, especially the combination of long time rivals and friends, Young Bucks and SCU. I loved the crisscross of finishers, such as Kaz and Nick doing the BTE Trigger, and of course finishing with Daniels and Matt doing Best Meltzer Ever. They officially established the obvious story, SCU wants to earn their way to a title match and face the Bucks, championships or bust. That is going to be their 2021, and who knows if they pull it off.
Hager VS Wardlow was great stuff, a pure fight of big, mean powerhouses. I am surprised Wardlow won, but I see now that MJF used the moment to get in Hager’s good graces. There is a very strong chance MJF is making moves to get on everyone’s good side to then usurp the leadership from Jericho, and that’d be a pretty good story for the faction in 2021. Chuck VS Miro with the special Young Boy bet stipulation is also an interesting story to at least bring these trios to Beach Break in February. I have a feeling Miro wins so he can subject Chuck to humiliating things, and then Trent makes a return to ruin the Superbad wedding as revenge.
Sting is great, Darby is great, Team Taz is great, but the weigh-in for a non-weight-class belt doesn’t make sense. That was all just a vehicle to further establish what many of us had already figured, and that is Sting teaming with Darby to bring the fight to Team Taz. The new TNT belt looks pretty good, but I feel like that “red ribbon” with “champion” on it stands out too much. And honestly, the design didn’t look that different from the belt they retired. But the match of Darby VS Cage will still be great, with Darby surely still retaining somehow.
I like that we got a promo establishing Matt Hardy is officially managing Private Party, and I bet that will all fall apart at some point as he tries to push them into being Heels. I like that Snoop got to have a part in that because of Gin ‘n’ Juice, and I wonder what those secret demands from Private Party are. I am pretty sure FTR goaded Stunt into wanting in on the match, and things are going according to their plan. I can’t be sure if Stunt wins to prove the haters wrong, or he tries too hard and that is why they lose. Either one makes for good story with Jurassic Express, but I’m leaning towards FTR winning.
Cody VS Sydal was very good, and Snoop did a good job being the corner man. The thing with Chaos Project was clearly just to set up Snoop having a moment, though, but it was still pretty fun. I just wish TNT didn’t go so hard on having AEW hype up the Go Big Show. Yes, it’s very exciting and it’s a big investment, but I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to bother watching whole episodes. Can it at least be used on AEW as a way to make Cody seem like a Heel? Cody’s more fun as a Heel to me.
Tay Conti getting a title match against Serena Deeb is great stuff, but I can’t be sure the NWA Women’s Championship changes hands outside of the NWA. It’d be quite the surprise, but unless AEW stars start showing up on NWA, I’m not sure it’d do much for either company. Shida VS Abadon was a very good match, especially on character. Abadon could probably scare The Fiend. She scares me, that’s for sure. But Shida retains to keep going strong, and at this rate, it feels like it’ll either be Britt Baker or Nyla Rose that takes the title from her.
Moxley had a great promo warning Omega, and it should’ve been obvious he’d try to follow through tonight, since he literally said he does what he says he will. The overly elaborate introductions for Omega are getting better in my opinion, and I like that Jericho popped for when Winnipeg was mentioned. Omega VS Fenix was an incredible match, practically PPV levels, and of course Omega wins because the story is only just beginning. The Good Brothers being the first Impact stars to show up on AEW was a great surprise, and them going after Moxley, then helping Omega fight off basically every AEW Dark regular was great.
The big shock was the Bucks showing up to then apparently side with Omega! Having crossovers and referencing the past is the power AEW has over WWE, because even though Jericho didn’t want to say Too Sweet or Bullet Club, the more knowledgeable fans know exactly what’s going on here. Now all we need is NJPW to get in the mix, and we can finally have that Bullet Club Civil War we should’ve gotten back in 2019 when all this AEW talk got started.
My Score: 9.6/10

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?

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 switches, Bryan switches, repeat, but then Dax fakes Bryan out! Dax reels Bryan in but Bryan back drops the driver away!

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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

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!

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.

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?
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.
