AEW has the full Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament Bracket!
On the Japan half, the opening round will see: Yuka Sakazaki VS Mei Suruga; Veny VS Emi Sakura; Maki Itoh VS Ryo Mizunami; and Aja Kong VS Rin Kadokura! On the US half, the opening round will see: Anna Jay VS Britt Baker; Tay Conti VS Nyla Rose; NWA Women’s World Champion, Serena Deeb VS inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion, Riho; and tonight, former NWA Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa, VS #LEGIT Leyla Hirsch! Who makes it out of the Super 16 to be in the All Elite 8?
Jon Moxley speaks.
“Kenta has been calling me out for months from across an ocean, walking around with a stupid little briefcase, talking trash, looking like a dork.” So last week wasn’t really a surprise. Did Kenny Omega and Kenta connected on some Bullet Club Facebook Group? Moxley thinks Kenta realized the time for cheap talk was over. And if Kenta wants Moxley’s IWGP United States Championship, he has to get it done in the ring on February 26th, NJPW New Beginnings in USA! Moxley and Kenta will stand eye to eye, toe to toe, mano a mano, as “two of the hardest hitting, nastiest suckers in the game,” in a war of attrition until one man can’t stand! 2/26/21, Moxley dumps Kenta on his head!
But that’ll be a sanctioned match for the title. Tonight is not so much. Moxley teams with a man who has tried to kill him multiple times in Lance Archer, against two guys with a common interest: Take Moxley off the board. “Good luck with that, dudes. Tonight is just for fun.” Will the Death Rider and Murderhawk Monster make sure the Cleaner and the Fang Revived learn the hard way that they can’t get down and dirty like them?
Sammy Guevara has cameras follow him.
He returns to the Inner Circle’s private room, and MJF pretends he was looking all over for him. Sammy tells Wardlow, Jake Hager, Santana and Ortiz that he needs a minute with Max. The boys check with MJF, and he says he’s good. They go, so now it’s just Sammy, MJF and the camera. What does Sammy want to say? Sammy watched Dynamite back last week, and he knows what MJF is doing. MJF says people are alluding to this all the time, so he wants Sammy to say it himself. Sammy says he knows MJF is just trying to take over the Inner Circle. Oh is that right? Yes, it’s so obvious! MJF is making it more obvious every week!
MJF says when he first got here, he thought this was a “childish, petty rivalry” from Sammy. Because honestly, MJF figured Sammy was jealous. Why wouldn’t he be? Sammy was the “apple of Chris Jericho’s eye,” until MJF came along. Le Sex Gods dies, #Y2MJF is the new favorite. But then MJF realized something more sinister. This isn’t jealousy. MJF thinks Sammy hates Jericho. Sammy hates that he has to play second fiddle to Jericho! Sammy thinks he should be the front man of the Inner Circle, doesn’t he? MJF thinks Sammy is upset because HE wants to take over the team. Oh~ okay! MJF figured it out~! Sammy wants to take over! Sammy hates Jericho. Is that what MJF wants to hear? Yes, actually.
Wait, MJF was recording that on his phone?! Sammy snatches the phone, SMASHES it against the wall, then LOW BLOWS MJF! Sammy scowls and leaves MJF whimpering. But will Jericho understand what is happening between his boys behind his back?
Cody Rhodes & Lee Johnson w/ Arn Anderson VS Peter Avalon & Cezar Bononi!
You think a man with a losing streak as long as “Pretty” Peter’s would’ve been used to losing, but he was very upset when he lost his own Walk-Off challenge to #BigShotty Johnson. Will the Brazilian V8 help PPA shoot down Johnson and his handsome tag partner, the American Nightmare, to avenge that loss?
The teams sort out, and Cody starts with Avalon for their own rematch from a few weeks ago. They approach, Cody fires off on Avalon and bumps him off buckles. Cody stomps a mudhole in then lets off as the ref counts. Avalon gasps but Cody drags him up to wrench. Tag to Johnson, and Johnson takes the hand-off to wrench the arm. Avalon spins, wrenches and headlocks, but Johnson powers out. Bononi tags in, Avalon holds ropes and Bononi BLINDSIDES Johnson! Bononi looms over Johnson, stays between him and Cody, and then taunts him. Bononi drags Johnson up and over, tags in Avalon, and they mug Johnson.
Avalon drags Johnson up, wrenches and whips corner to corner, but Johnsong goes up and over to come back, waistlock and shove, to then hurdle and dropkick! Fans fire up for Johnson but Avalon scrambles to tag Bononi! Johnson is ready this time and he dodges Bononi to drop, hurdle, but Bononi fakes him out to lift him up! Johnson fights out of the bomb to jawbreaker! Tag to Cody and he throws clotheslines! Bononi stays up, Cody keeps hitting him, then dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! Bononi staggers up, fans fire up and Cody runs in to whip. Bononi reverses, pump handles, and lifts Cody for a FALL AWAY SLAM!
Fans fire up as Bononi roars and stomps Cody down! AEW goes picture in picture as Bononi stomps Cody at the ropes!
The ref counts, Bononi stops at 4 and then tags Avalon. They mug Cody, Avalon has Cody in the corner and throws haymakers. Avalon follows Cody to another corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS him again! Cody just gets annoyed but Avalon kicks his legs out! Tag to Bononi and they mug Cody again. Bononi drags Cody up, puts him in the corner and CHOPS him! Bononi throws a big knee and Cody flounders around. Bononi brings Cody up, tags in Avalon, and Bononi INVERTED SLAMS Cody down! Camel clutch and basement dropkick combo! Cover, TWO! Avalon drags Cody away from Johnson, snapmares him and wraps on a chinlock.
Cody endures as fans rally up and Avalon leans on the hold. Cody fights up, but Avalon throws him down! Avalon scowls, drags Cody back up and wraps on another chinlock as AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Avalon wrenches Cody in the corner. Avalon whips him corner to corner, then sucker punches Johnson! Avalon runs in at Cody but is put on the apron! Avalon springboards in but Cody catches him! Cody uses that power to pop Avalon up for a fireman’s carry, GUTBUSTER RACK! But it’s double-edged as Cody’s shoulder bothers him there! Avalon and Cody both sit up, but Cody hot tags to Johnson! Johnson rallies on Avalon, then spins to elbow and neckbreaker! Bononi gets in as Jonson kips up, but Johnson dumps Bononi right out! Johnson builds speed to FLY! TORNILLO TOPE!!
Johnson gets back in, aims at Avalon and enziguris! Springboard, but Avalon gets under. Johnson mule kicks, reels Avalon in, fisherman USHIGOROSHI!! Cover, Bononi breaks it! Cody goes after Bononi, kick and Rhodes Uppercut! Bononi reverses the whip to throw Cody out hard, then he whips Johnson into ropes hard! BIG FLAPJACK! Avalon hurries but Cody drags Bononi out! Cody brawls with Bononi, Johnson avoids Marti-Knees and rolls Avalon up! Johnson and Cody win!!
Winners: Cody Rhodes & Lee Johnson, by pinfall
Big Shotty has his first AEW win ever!! Arn tells him that’s the way to do it, and the rest of the Nightmare Family comes out to celebrate with him! Tony Schiavone also goes to interview Johnson and the team, of course asking that while this is emotional, this is big for him. Johnson says he wishes so much he had a world of words for us but he doesn’t. A year of losing, 0-29 in 2020. But his trainers, Cody, Dustin, Arn and Brandi all showed Johnson that if you do the work, it always pays off! The Rhodes Family is Johnson’s family, and they and they alone did this for him. The Nightmare Family celebrates with Johnson again, but is this just the beginning of big things for Big Shotty?
Backstage interview with The Young Bucks.
Dasha talks with the AEW World Tag Team Champions about last week’s Tag Team Battle Royal. #Y2MJF won and are their challengers for Revolution, but what happened that the champions were eliminated so early? Nick Jackson says to just ask these guys. Because here come the Good Brothers, Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson! Anderson says, “How about those numbers last week, boys? 844,000 to what?” Gallows says “a measly little 610!” The Good Brothers did that! They’re taking credit for AEW winning the ratings war, it seems. But the Bucks want to talk about the Good Brothers showing up at the Tag Team Battle Royal.
Well Anderson Too Sweet’d Tony Khan so- No, we need to address the problem. Gallows & Anderson interrupted Nick against Private Party, Nick gets all distracted and boo, eliminated. Matt Jackson says the “idiots” forgot that if the Bucks had won, they could’ve chosen anyone to face them for the AEW tag titles! And that anyone would’ve been them! Good Brothers VS Young Bucks at Revolution, a true dream match! Anderson apologizes, but the Good Brothers were just trying to distract “Private Sharty” because of the coming match at Impact Wrestling’s No Surrender, this Saturday, 2/13/21. They didn’t mean to mess up the Bucks.
But who is the real heat with? The Inner Circle, Santana and Ortiz, who eliminated Matt! Right! And then MJF and Jericho, doing the Bucks’ pose?! The very pose that built their “big ass networth” and mansion! True, Matt is fired up about that. Maybe Matt and Nick shouldn’t wait until Revolution. What if it was next week? Santana and Ortiz are a top ranked team, so this can happen! Bucks VS Proud ‘n’ Powerful for the titles! Good Brothers like that. Ratings monsters right here! Too Sweet it! Matt isn’t so sure, that’s more of a private thing. Sting is like right there, in view of it, it’s awkward. Nick Too Sweets. Stinger, you want in on this? Well, for now, a plan has been made! Will the Bucks get even with PNP before taking on Y2MJF? Or will there be an Inner Circle Civil War after all?
Backstage interview with Hangman Page.
Dasha asks him about teaming up victoriously with Matt Hardy and if that will become a regular thing. Hangman says no, not at all. But Matt Hardy comes over to say he gets it. Hangman doesn’t want to be in a team, but what they had last week was special. They’re special. At least let Hardy treat him to an overdue celebration. He already rented a place out, drinks all night, all on Hardy. Is Hangman in? Well, putting it that way, yeah! Hangman will get his stuff real quick. But then Hangman bumps into the Dark Order. Literally all of them.
It’s a bit awkward though as John Silver explains they were just going this way and Hangman tries to say he’s hanging out with Hardy. Dark Order’s fine with that, they’ll see Hangman on the flipside. Silver, shut up, that’s so dumb! Hangman heads out, will he change his mind about teaming with “Big Money Matt” after a night out? Will Dark Order be able to move on from what could have been?
PAC w/ Rey Fenix VS Ryan Nemeth!
The Bastard is still in a bad mood- Well, no he’s always in a bad mood. He is still in a foul mood after that Beach Break defeat at the hands of the Biz Cliz! Will he look to take it out on the Hollywood Hunk tonight?
The bell rings and Pac just stares at Nemeth. Nemeth and Pac circle, approach, and feel out a grapple. Pac kicks out a leg then stomps Nemeth down! Fans chant, “PAC is gonna kill~ you~” as Pac drags Nemeth up. Pac snap suplexes hard, then just watches Nemeth slowly get up. Nemeth goes to a corner, Pac runs in and back elbows him down! Nemeth flounders again, Pac goes up and watches like a hawk! Pac leaps to missile dropkick! And then kip right up! Pac looms over Nemeth, drags him up by his hair, then gets right in his face. Nemeth shoves Pac away to ROCK him with a forearm! Pac scowls and back kicks, front kicks and back kicks again! Pac runs to DROPKICK Nemeth down!
Nemeth goes out to the apron and then flops to the floor. Pac stalks Nemeth from the apron, then hops down to follow him. Pac puts Nemeth back in as the fans fire up, and Pac steps in, but into Nemeth’s dropkick! Nemeth hops up to SATELLITE DDT! Nemeth hurries but Pac rolls out of the ring! Fenix checks on Nemeth, Nemeth hurries after Pac, but Pac kicks and throws Nemeth into railing! Nemeth is half in and half out, Pac scowls and drags Nemeth back to the ring. Pac stalks Nemeth, stomps Nemeth over and over in the corner, and fans are rabid as he looms over Nemeth.
The Hollywood Hunk might be out, but Pac shows no mercy! He drags Nemeth to a drop zone, climbs up, and hits BLACK ARROW! To the BRUTALIZER!! Nemeth taps, Pac wins!
Winner: PAC, by submission
Pac won’t let go until Nemeth passes out a second time! Fenix stands alongside The Bastard, will they be able to avenge Pentagon against the Good Brothers?
Miro and the Superbad Couple look back on last week.
The Best Man says he had the perfect opportunity to be there with the beautiful bride and the handsome groom for the Beach Break wedding, only for things to be ruined by “that gutless bastard,” Chuck Taylor, who Miro (supposedly) took under his wing and treated like a brother! Chuck cuffed Miro, mugged Kip and ruined the cake. But Miro says it isn’t Chuck, it’s that Orange Cassidy being a bad influence! Miro will take Cassidy and put him in the hospital, next to Trent! Then those three can celebrate their stupidity together, because no one messes with Kip, Penelope or Miro!
Chuck and Cassidy respond.
“I mean… What did they think was gonna happen?” Of course Cassidy was gonna pop out of a cake. Cheers! But will the Best Friends not be able to toast to their health after The Best Man gets his hands on them?
Backstage interview with The Inner Circle!
Well, it’s really just Jericho, Wardlow and Hager right now. Jericho says not to worry, surely MJF will be out here. MJF is just warming up because that is what contenders do. But then Santana and Ortiz come by to report that MJF is in the trainer’s room. MJF hobbles over with rib tape and asks if Jericho saw what happened. Sammy sucker punched MJF in the ribs like an animal! What?! Sammy might’ve broken one of MJF’s ribs! Well where is Sammy? Like they’re supposed to know! Jericho says they have to focus on the match first, worry about Sammy later. The music hits, and Y2MJF has no choice but to go on!
The Acclaimed VS Y2MJF w/ The Inner Circle!
This battle comes about because A) Max Caster and Anthony Bowens overlapped their entrance with the Inner Circle’s, and B) Caster eliminated MJF, which almost cost MJF and Jericho their shot at the tag titles. It’s been a war of words, and that’ll continue again with Caster’s diss rap, but will Jericho and a battered MJF be able to win the match?
Fans sing Judas for Jericho but then The Acclaimed drop the beat! “Acclaimed make you stupid! Cut your lights off like we cut off Judas! Sorry, Chris, you suck like a mosquito. I hope your bones ain’t as fragile as your ego. Last week, I threw Max out the battle royal, caught him slippin’ cuz of all that baby oil! I should get a shot at the Diamond Ring, unless you wanna be my Sunshine and sing.” AEW, the Acclaimed have arrived! Will with they go up from 4th rank to 3rd or back down to 5?
The teams sort out, Caster starts against MJF to rekindle a Max VS Max feud that apparently goes back years. MJF and Caster circle, Bowens swipes at MJF but MJF hits back! Caster and MJF tie up, but the ribs hurt and MJF has to bail out. Jericho checks on MJF as fans boo. Caster flexes, kisses his muscles then waits on MJF. MJF walks off the pain, gets back in the ring, but tags Jericho. Jericho runs but Caster kicks low and throws forearms! Caster whips, Jericho reverses but Caster knocks Jericho down with a flying shoulder! Caster kips up, whips Jericho to the corner, then tags in Bowens. The Acclaimed coordinate, Caster whips Jericho into Bowen’s enziguri!
Caster lifts Jericho for a BIG back suplex, then Bowens hits a slingshot elbow drop! Cover, TWO! The 5 Tool Player taunts Jericho, throws elbows and forearms over and over, then whips him to ropes. Jericho holds ropes, boots Bowens away then tags MJF. MJF runs in but swings into a swinging SLAM! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives but Bowens stays between him and Jericho. Bowens drags MJF, tags in Caster, and they mug MJF, making sure to hit the ribs. MJF grits his teeth but Caster drags him back. MJF rakes Caster’s eyes, puts him in the corner, and digs his palms in. The ref backs MJF off but Jericho rakes Caster’s eyes!
Tag to Jericho, and Y2MJF throw elbows and bump Caster off buckles. MJF rakes Caster’s back, then both he and Jericho stomp a mudhole in! MJF digs his boots in, lets off and exits, but Jericho tags MJF back in. Y2MJF double whip, then double FLAPJACK Caster down! They both step on Caster then soak up the heat. MJF and Jericho high-five as fans rally up and AEW goes picture in picture.
MJF stomps Caster, stalks him to a corner, and digs his forearm into Caster’s face! The ref counts, MJF stops, and MJF snapmares to KNEE Caster in the back! MJF wraps on a chinlock and Caster endures. Caster fights up, throws elbows into the bad ribs and gets free! Caster staggers for his corner but MJF throws him down by his hair first! MJF DECKS Bowens for good measure, then goes up the corner. MJF leaps, but Caster hits him with a body shot! MJF tumbles but tags Jericho in, and Jericho CLOBBERS Caster! Jericho drags Caster up to back suplex high and hard, then has the cocky cover. TWO, but Jericho drags Cater up to throw him out.
The ref argues with Jericho and that leaves the rest of the Inner Circle open to stomp away on Caster! MJF puts Caster in for Jericho to bring him up. Jericho takes his time, Caster blocks the suplex, and then Caster suplexes Jericho in return! Both men are down, fans rally up, and Jericho tags in MJF! MJF elbows Caster down, gets a shot in on Bowens, then stomps Caster. MJF taunts Caster to tag Bowens, shouts in his face and pushes him around, then soaks up the heat. Caster gets up, MJF is right on him with a cobra twist! Caster endures, Jericho reaches out, and he helps MJF with the leverage as AEW returns to single picture!
The ref checks, Jericho lets go and MJF still has the hold. Jericho and MJF link up to pull on Caster again, but again get away with it before the ref sees! They try a third time, the ref sees it this time, and instead of reprimanding, Aubrey just kicks MJF’s arm! Caster turns things around to put MJF in the cobra twist! Now MJF suffers, but he turns it around, only for Caster to hip toss him away! Fans fire up, both men crawl, hot tags to Jericho and Bowens! Bowens dodges then rallies on Jericho with big shoulders! Bowens fires off on MJF and Jericho with big haymakers and CHOPS! Bowens DECKS MJF, whips Jericho but Jericho reverses! Bowens slings around Jericho to whip again, and dropkicks him down!
Fans fire up for Bowens as he scoops MJF to a torture rack! Swinging SLAM! Ortiz gets on the apron to distract but Bowens DECKS him! Jericho aims and throat chops Bowens down! Jericho runs to ropes, but Caster uses the BOOMBOX to knock him down! Bowens covers, TWO!?!? Jericho survives and Bowens can’t believe it! “This is Awesome!” but not done yet! Bowens drags Jericho up, CHOPS him, then hits the 5 Tool SIDE EFFECT! Tag to Caster, he climbs up and Bowens PLANCHAS out, only to miss! MJF and the Inner Circle let Bowens hit the floor, and the ref is busy with that, allowing Hager to SHOVE Cater off the corner! JUDAS EFFECT!! Cover, Y2MJF wins!!
Winners: Y2MJF, by pinfall
The Number 1 contenders win, mostly because they had everyone else helping them! Is this how they’ll have to win against The Young Bucks?
Wait, Sammy Guevara makes his own entrance now! He has a mic and he goes down to the ring to join the others. MJF hides behind Jericho for his own safety, and Jericho asks Sammy what’s going on. Sammy comes out late, he’s hitting MJF, smashing phones, what’s the problem? Sammy says he told you so. 12/9/2020, if one more thing happened with MJF, Sammy was done. Sammy is here to tell Jericho in person, he’s done. Jericho asks what Sammy means by that. Sammy says he’s done, and QUITS the Inner Circle!! Fans are fired up for Sammy as he leaves the group. The rest of the Inner Circle is shocked, but who is really to blame for this happening?
AEW returns and Alex Marvez tries to interview Sammy.
Sammy tells Marvez that his reasons for leaving don’t really matter, he’s just over this. Sammy is going to refocus with time away. When will we see the Spanish God return to AEW?
AEW Media finds Hangman and Hardy at the bar.
Hangman tells Hardy a story, and the punchline is, “It urns out it was Clinton Houston the whole time.” Hilarious! Hardy is still buzzing from that win last. Not buzzing like Hangman is, though, he is putting them away. Cheers. Hardy doesn’t drink his, he dumps it out and then just pretends! Well this was a great time and Hardy knows Hangman doesn’t want to be a tag team guy, but Hardy could at least make Hangman the number one wrestler in the entire industry. Hangman could dominate AEW and become richer than his wildest dreams! They have such great chemistry!
So if Hangman would just consider this deal, Hardy could make Hangman millions upon millions of dollars! And for the small, small percentage of 30%, because when you’re making multi-millions, what does it matter? Hangman is starting to agree with Hardy! Hardy hands him a pen and then whispers to the cameraman is that they’re here to document this so there’s prove. But what Hardy is missing is that Hangman just pulled a fast one on Hardy! He threw away the contract to bring out a document of his own! Hangman signs and hands Hardy it to sign his own part. Hardy will take care of all this, and promises Hangman he’ll be a BILLIONAIRE! Wow, really?
Hardy thanks Hardy, hopes he enjoys the rest of the night, and heads out. Yeah, sure! See you, Matt! Hangman asks for another round. Will Hardy be the one to regret this in the morning?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
And with the Street Fight signed, sealed and delivered, it’s STIIIIING~! The snow, the crow and the Icon! Sting walks out on stage to talk about the coming match. What is on his mind going up against Team Taz? But before Sting can say anything, Team Taz interrupts on titantron! Taz says hey, and hopes Sting remembers Powerhouse Will Hobbs. But anyway, Team Taz has a little road trip in mind. They’re even bringing a special guest along and they’re going to go to FTW World! Starks and Cage have Darby!! They put him in a body bag and then attach him to the back of the van! The van is towing Darby through the parking lot!! Sting hurries to stop this, but is he already too late?
AEW shares Alex Marvez finding Kenny Omega… on the golf course?
Marvez calls over to Omega right before he’s swinging out of the sand trap. Omega asks if that’s who he thinks it is: Marvez, on the golf course. Well, no talkie while he golfie, okay? Stand back and watch this. Omega smacks the ball out of the sand and onto the green! Now talk. Marvez asks what Omega is doing out here when later tonight, he has a No Holds Barred, Falls Count Anywhere, UNSANCTIONED tag match with Archer and Moxley! And his tag partner, Kenta, probably doesn’t even like him! Shouldn’t Omega be preparing for the match instead of playing golf?
Omega clarifies something for Marvez. “We’re talking about professional wrestling, right? We’re talking about the thing that I’ve already been proven as being the best of all time in. I’ve got the resume to prove it!” So what does Marvez expect Omega to be doing? Huddling around a TV screen with Don Callis studying film on his opponents, or even on his partner? No! Omega is here, at one with nature, clearing his mind and preparing spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Omega has forgotten what it’s like to lose. And just like the last 15 matches he’s had in AEW, Omega won’t lose tonight. He also won’t miss. Just like he did this golf shot. Right, Don?
Uh, yeah! Don totally didn’t sneak a different golf ball into the hole while everyone was looking at Omega! See? What did Omega tell us? He’ll put on a show tonight, so just sit back and enjoy. Until then, good-bye mwah, and good night, wow another Eagle, huh? Souvenir for Marvez since it’ll be worth something one day. Don’s pretty sure Marvez will just sell it on his MySpace page. MySpace…? Can Marvez get a ride back? PFFT!!
AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament: Leyla Hirsch VS Thunder Rosa!
The opening round of this international tournament begins, and the US side of the bracket has a #LEGIT starter! Will Leyla be too legit for a former NWA Women’s Champion? But Rosa has three big goals in AEW: take the AEW title from Shida; take back the NWA title from Serena Deeb; and take revenge on Britt Baker and her “big ass nose!” Will the first step to those goals start here?
The bell rings, Rosa and Leyla circle, then tie up. They go around, Rosa waistlocks but Leyla switches. Leyla drags Rosa down, Rosa switches back but Leyla scoots to shift and switch again. Leyla messes up Rosa’s hair a bit, Rosa gets annoyed, and Rosa gets up to wrench and mess up Leyla’s hair. These two reset, circle and tie up, and have a test of strength. Leyla shifts around, gets a fireman’s carry takeover, then goes after the arm. Rosa fights up, wrenches and then drop toeholds Leyla down! Rosa pulls Leyla’s hair but Leyla gets up and gets away. Fans cheer the technical exchange as the two go again.

AEW shares Tony Schiavone’s sit-down interview with Jungle Boy.
It was just last week, FTR was suspended from the Tag Team Battle Royal because of what they did to Jurassic Express the week before. In response, they kidnapped Marko Stunt! Stunt was released and is okay, but JB wants to speak. JB talks to FTR. JB and Dax had a match everyone is talking about, and both men have had a lot of matches. JB was never in a fight like that. Dax slapped JB so hard he had to put his hands on the ground to steady himself. But the important thing was that JB came out on top and came out a different man. JB made Dax tap in front of the whole world.
So no, Jurassic Express didn’t tattle on FTR. They didn’t want FTR suspended and removed from the battle royal. They wanted FTR here to look them in the eyes. When they get that opportunity, JB vows to make FTR his bitch! Will Jurassic Express get their revenge on FTR?
Speaking of FTR…
Next week, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler return to tag team action as Matt Sydal is going to be joined by MIKE Sydal! Will the Sydal Brothers come to #FearTheRevelation in their Dynamite tag debut?
More is in store for next week’s Dynamite!
After Hangman signed Hardy’s contract, or at least that’s what Hardy thinks, Hangman is joining #HardyParty against the combination of The Hybrid2 and Chaos Project! Will this be the beginning of the billion dollar venture Big Money Matt spoke of? And after seeing what Team Taz did to Darby, Sting looks to call them all out! Will Sting be in over his head against Taz, Starks, Cage, Hobbs and Hook? Then, in another Women’s World Title Eliminator match, Serena Deeb and Riho go 1v1 for a spot in the All Elite 8! And as the Bucks declared, they will defend their AEW World Tag Team Championships against Santana & Ortiz ahead of Revolution!
No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere: KENTA & Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Jon Moxley & Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake!
An already wild night has a main event that will bring things right off the rails! The Fang Revived has his chance to sink his teeth into the Maniac IWGP US Champion for NJPW’s New Beginnings, but will he and the Cleaner get along given the storied history of the Bullet Club and The Elite? Or will the Murderhawk Monster and Death Rider leave lasting impressions on their familiar foes?
But first, “The man who is undefeated in singles matches for 529 days; the very first and some would say greatest IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion. His 38 AEW victories are more than anyone else on the roster. Overall, he has won 10 straight matches spanning across three different wrestling organizations. His pinfall over Jon Moxley, the only pinfall on Jon Moxley, was voted the Biggest WTF Moment in the Bleacher Report 2020 Awards. His biggest WTF moment coincidentally took place in a Wild Wing Cafe in NOOORTH CAROLINA~! He hails from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and weighs 224 pounds.

Fans fire up as Moxley fires off, but Kenta gives them back! Moxley forearms Kenta, Kenta forearms back, but then Moxley BOOTS! Kenta BOOTS, then fireman’s carries! GO TO-

Even in a match with no rules and no restrictions, The Cleaner needed help from his friends! The “forbidden door” is open, Biz Cliz wins together, but will they be able to maintain this momentum?
A truly wild episode, amazing stuff. Things opened strong with that TNT Championship, but that’s about the one thing where the story with Darby and everyone else shined. Darby gets kidnapped and put in a body bag to be dragged behind a van, Sting “hurried” out at only a fast walk, and now he’s going to call Team Taz out next week? I’m not sure this story is coming off how they hoped, because it’s getting a bit repetitive and ridiculous. Pac got a good squash match win, and I suppose it was alright that there was no Eddie Kingston and The Fam tonight. This already ended up being a packed night so let story develop next week or even on Dark, which Dark should be doing more of anyway.
For instance, the story of Lee Johnson and Peter Avalon, and honestly both their stories independently, were all built through the constant losses on Dark. So Johnson finally getting the in-ring win on Avalon, and just a win at all, was made big for Dynamite only because of Dark. I hope the look QT had when Johnson didn’t mention him in the list of trainers leads to something, but maybe not for a long time. I just said on the Dark article how QT, Dustin Rhodes and Nick Comoroto are making a great combination, I would hope there isn’t a Nightmare Family defection just yet. Maybe after Trios Championships are introduced, then we can have things fall apart.
The story with the Inner Circle took an interesting twist on where I certainly expected it. Sammy quitting rather than being thrown out is actually good continuity because Sammy did make that ultimatum as 2020 closed. Santana & Ortiz getting a tag title shot before Y2MJF should also be a point of tension. There should be concern that if Proud ‘n’ Powerful win next week, then there’s A) no way Y2MJF wins at Revolution, and B) it’s just more in-fighting that they don’t want. I wonder if instead of Sammy and Jericho being the only ones united against MJF and the Inner Circle, MJF and Jericho end up driving everyone else away.
We got strong story developments for FTR and Jurassic Express as well as the Hangman Hardy Dark Order relationships. JB is getting gritty, and I bet the tag rematch is going to be just as physical as that singles match. Hangman pulling a fast one on Hardy is going to be a great little reveal. Who knows what fine print Hangman put in his version of the contract. The awkward interaction with the Dark Order was perfectly executed, and the 8 Man Tag announced for next week is going to be a lot of fun. Rosa VS Leyla was really good but naturally Rosa wins because there is a way for her to face Britt Baker down the line, as well as Serena Deeb. The bracket looks good and I’ll definitely have to be ready on Monday (or Tuesday) for the Japan bracket opening round of the Stardom stars that have worked with AEW in the past.
The main event had great promos leading into it, such as the golf comedy with Omega and Callis, as well as Moxley setting out the plan for himself and Kenta. The match itself was incredible, definitely on the level of not just a No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere but also of a match involving the four men in it. I am still really enjoying the long and ever-changing list of accomplishments in Omega’s entrance, and it even works that the Good Brothers interfered because of how they’re making Omega this puffed up Heel who is great but not as great as he thinks.
If Bucks make it through Revolution and I would think Good Brothers make it through Private Party and whatever other teams, I am hoping those two teams meet at say Double or Nothing. The name even fits because it could be Winners Take All, both companies’ belts are on the line. Moxley VS Kenta can go either way since it’ll be happening on a NJPW show and Moxley isn’t shut out from being in NJPW. As for Omega, I am pretty sure this makes Archer his next AEW challenger, which is great because Archer has made the turn from Heel to Face without actually changing who he is, just who he targets.
My Score: 9.5/10

Backstage interview with Team Triple J.
Lexi Nair is with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, as well as Jeff & Karen Jarrett, “and the talk all week has been that you, Sonjay Dutt, and your group will be suspended.” WHAT?! Fined? Suspended? The only ones who should be facing that is AEW itself! They backed Triple J into a corner and they came out swinging like any real fighters would! Lethal feels that there should be consequences for Aubrey Edwards! She’s been against Triple J since the dawn of time! Something needs to be done about her! Jeff adds that there’s been enough talk these past five days. Should the heat go on the promotion? Should the heat go on Briscoe? On Aubrey?
The reality of the fact is, these five people are walking, talking, fire-breathing heat! But wait, here comes Mark Briscoe! He wants everyone to simmer down. There will be no suspensions, he assures us that. Mark talked with Tony Khan, Tony promised them there would be no suspensions. Because if Triple J is suspended, then they can’t be here. Because if they aren’t here, then they can’t get the ass whooping they deserve! Lethal wants Mark to hold on but Mark tells Lethal to shut up! We ain’t talking about Lethal! We’re talking about Jeff and KAREN! What?! “We?” Who is “we?!” AUBREY EDWARDS!!
Triple J cannot believe this. Aubrey wants Karen? Then there’s nothing but air and opportunity between them. So then Aubrey CHOKES Karen!! Karen and Aubrey start scrapping and Triple J, other refs and security rush in to stop this! When and where will Double J & the one true Karen have to face off with the Sussex County Chicken and one pissed off zebra?
NJPW World Television Championship: Zack Sabre Jr. VS Action Andretti!

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

Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.
“Tonight, two technical masters go face to face when Lee Moriarty takes on Shibata for the ROH Pure Championship.” Nigel McGuiness says a competitor like Shibata can pick you apart, one body part by another. But Tony Schiavone and Taz say not enough is said about just how talented Moriarty is for such a young wrestler. It looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!
ROH Pure Championship: Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty!
The Wrestler defended this title just last night on ROH against his student, Alex “The Android” Coughlin. But now he faces #TAIGASTYLE, who has come close to snatching this title for his own not too long ago. Will tonight be Moriarty’s night? Or will Shibata make it through this Pure Wrestling Double Header?
The introductions are made, our judges are BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels & Jerry Lynn, and the belt is raised as we see who is truly THE Wrestler!
The bell rings and the clock is ticking on this 60 minute time limit. The two feel things out, Moriarty shoots in but Shibata holds him off with a sprawl. They clinch on the mat, Shibata slips to a waistlock and then a chinlock. Moriarty slips free but Shibata pushes him to a cover, ONE! Shibata wraps Moriarty up with his own arm and then goes for the armbar! Moriarty clasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE! Moriarty falls onto the ROPEBREAK, that is his first of three. Shibata even lets Moriarty know it as they reset. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder, clinch, and Moriarty tries for a leg.
Shibata powers Moriarty down, gets around to a waistlock, and they stand up. Moriarty pries the hold, fans cheer this technical exchange, but then Moriarty elbows free! Moriarty stomps Shibata into a corner, the ref counts, but Moriarty digs his boot in. Fans boo, but Shibata powers up to back Moriarty down! Shibata throws the foot down but Shibata ROCKS him! Moriarty runs to dropkick the legs out! Fans boo while Moriarty grits his teeth, and then the fans rally up for Shibata as Rampage goes picture in picture.
Moriarty mocks the applause as he stands over Shibata. Moriarty then says they can stop all that, and he grabs a leg to DDT the foot! Moriarty kips up, air guitars, and he ties up Shibata’s legs into a unique crisscross toehold. Then he sits with it for a modified stump puller! Shibata’s shoulders are down, Moriarty is practically stealing Darby Allin’s Last Supper! TWO as Shibata kicks out and Moriarty argues the count. Moriarty drags Shibata around, stomps a leg, then stomps it more and more before another DDT to the foot!

Moriarty sits up, Shibata thrashes around, and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans rally, Moriarty drags Shibata along as he reaches back, but Shibata drags him from the ropes!

Shibata stomps Moriarty’s bad leg, has him in a corner, and he fires off forearms! The ref counts, Shibata fires again and again, but lets off at 4.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall (still ROH Pure Champion)
Just past nine minutes and Shibata finishes things off, but wait! Daniel Garcia is here! The Dragonslayer is a former ROH Pure Champion, and he’s walking out right to the ring! Garcia steps in, he swaggers up to Shibata, and it is clear this is what’s next for Shibata. Shibata raises the belt to signal his accepting the challenge, will The Wrestler put down this sports… enner-tay-ner?
A great Rampage here, though I’m surprised this wasn’t just a Battle of the Belts special. Excalibur said it himself on commentary in the main event, but it was great to start off with the epitome of lucha libre and finish on Strong Style technical wrestling. The AAA Mega Championship was a great opener, and was definitely another instance where I’m grateful we can pause things because they were going fast and furious. Or maybe at Flash speeds, since that’s a Warner Brothers movie they could plug. But as I figured going into this, all the champions retained, since none of these were AEW titles (directly, since ROH is a subsidiary of AEW now).
The NJPW World Television Championship continues to be a great title to watch because of the 15 minute time limit speeding things up. Likewise, ZSJ is always a great wrestler to watch, but so hard to write for cuz he has the biggest collection of named signature moves/holds of any wrestler I’ve seen. I had to double check what he was using to make Action tap, because I keep thinking things are Clarky Cat when they’re not Clarky Cat. ZSJ is setting a very high bar for this title, maybe he retains against Cobb at Dominion or maybe he loses, but it’s going to be hard for the second-ever NJPW World TV Champion to match what ZSJ has done.
Great first title defense for Willow and this title, she and Emi put on a great match. I wonder when Willow has her first defense on NJPW Strong, and who she’ll be facing. And we got a great Pure Championship match to finish, and I’m surprised it was so quick, even compared to the NJPW World TV Championship match. But great win for Shibata, I like that Garcia is stepping up, and that’s going to be an awesome match. I don’t know if they’re going to wait until Death Before Dishonor in July for that match, but knowing AEW and ROH, they can find a way to stretch things out. Especially with Garcia also busy being part of JAS and doing JAS things.
My Score: 8.7/10

Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, along with Bryan Danielson, were victorious at Double or Nothing in Anarchy in the Arena II, but they had some help at the end. We’ll hear from dirty Don and turncoat Takeshita later, because right now, the BCC want to unleash #DeathJitsu on the ROH World Tag Team Champions & The Most Wanted! Will the Maniac, the Swiss Superman and the Decoder prove they’re ready for more violence?
Fans are fired up for the Lucha Bros & Bandido but the BCC isn’t amused. The trios sort out but then everyone starts shoving. Then they start brawling!

Penta crawls, as does Yuta, hot tag to Bandido! He HOTSHOTS Yuta, springboards but Yuta moves! Bandido FLOPS, then distracts the ref! Claudio & Moxley drag Bandido out to ASSISTED PILEDRIVER to the floor!! Bryan loves it while fans boo, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Yuta snap suplexes Bandido up and over, then drags Bandido back up. He fists bumps Claudio, puts Bandido in the ring, then tags Moxley. Moxley keeps Bandido from the corner with a facelock, but fans rally up. Bandido fights to his feet, only for Moxley to HALF HATCH! Moxley then tags Claudio in, they stomps Bandido, then Claudio grabs an arm to grind it down. Bandido endures, fights to the ROPEBREAK, but Claudio brings him up. Bandido throws body shots but Claudio chinbars to keep him from the corner. Claudio whips and CLOBBERS Bandido, then flexes. Tag to Moxley and the BCC stomp Bandido again.
Moxley gets the legs to stomp Bandido int he stomach. Moxley then turns Bandido with a HALF CRAB! Bandido reaches out, Yuta tries to keep the rope from him but the ref reprimands. Fans rally up, Bandido gets the ROPEBREAK! Moxley lets go to bring Bandido up and he throws knee after knee. Moxley whips, Bandido sunset flips, but Moxley rolls through to KNEE Bandido down!

Backstage interview with The Elite.
Alex Marvez is with Hangman Page and the Young Bucks while Matt Jackson is having his foot taped up. Anarchy in the Arena II was perhaps one of the most brutal matches in AEW history, what is the status of Matt and the rest of the team three days later? Matt says a long time ago, he told Hangman that he brings out the good in them. Safe to say, after Sunday, the BCC bring out the worst in them. Never thought the day would come where Matt would try to melt the face of another man with an explosive sneaker, and alas, here we are.
Nick, a big bandage on his forehead, recounts Hangman saying that they are the heart, the soul and the spirit of AEW. Not one setback is gonna keep them down! Hangman says they are still standing, still swinging, and still breathing! To be a group that prides themselves on being the best, the BCC sure love to use numbers. But the truth is- Wait, in walks the Dark Order. They tell Hangman, “Good to see you.” Oh, did Matt hurt his foot? Silver says Hangman is with his new-old best friends, they should probably just go. Sorry about that. Hangman wants to respond to that, but Marvez has one more question.
It has been said, rumored, that Kenny Omega has left the country and gone home to Canada based on everything that’s happened the last few weeks. Any word on that? Hangman says Kenny is hurt, he is pissed, and yes he is out of the country, but he’s not in Canada. Hangman excuses himself to chase after The Dark Order, what is the status of that friendship? What is the status of The Cleaner after further betrayal by men he once called friends?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
Double or Nothing is in the rearview mirror, and he welcomes out two men who were very active that night, Jay White & Juice Robinson, Bullet Club Gold! The Switchblade & Rock Hard make their way out, and White says the money’s here! Schiavone says their issue with Ricky Starks seems never ending. They get in close and he says they attacked Starks backstage! White starts by saying that Double or Nothing was a great night. Fans cheer and White applauds, too. But White bets Starks feels he’s on top of the world after he eliminated Jay & Juice from the battle royal.
But as a reminder to everyone, especially to Ricky Starks, he’s not the International Champion. he lost that battle royal just like he lost to White. And Juice says that brings them to FTR! BCG wants to know, WHY, Dax & Cash, did you come to the aid of “sweet boy” Ricky? It doesn’t make sense! There’s no way FTR are friends with Ricky Starks, because we all know Ricky Starks ain’t got no friends! White says we also know FTR are “a couple of Southern boys,” so maybe they’re a little bit slow. And they look dumb, too, have you seen them? You heard them talk? They sound pretty dumb, too!
White just didn’t actually think they were dumb enough to get in the Bang Bang Gang’s business! But wait, here comes FTR! Dax & Cash are still AEW World Tag Team Champions after Mark Briscoe saw who were his real friends on Sunday night. The champs get in the ring but White uses Schiavone as a shield. Seems FTR are that dumb. Juice says keep this cordial. This isn’t them being dumb, they’re here to apologize! White isn’t so sure, but maybe Juice is on to something. Maybe they’re also here because they wanna join BULLET CLUB GOLD~! Yeah? Huh? White says FTR are ready to be some Gold members!
So do they wanna join the top shelf gunslingers? Top Shelf Top Guys! If they wanted to join, all they had to do was ask. Just make sure you do it politely. White holds out the mic to Dax, then drops it as he reaches out. Fans boo and Dax glares at White. But then Juice sucker punches Dax! FISTFUL O’ SILVER DOLLARS!! Cash TACKLES Juice, but White goes after Cash! The BCG mug Cash while Dax writhes, clutching his jaw! Juice drags Dax up, JUICE IS LOOSE!! “Take that!” White gets Cash for a BLADERUNNER!! “That’s what you get!!” But here comes Starks! Starks runs BCG off and grabs the mic.
“Hey you two cowards! I’m sick of you two every single week! So how about this? You keep that jabroni ass freak in the back, and you and me, Jay, we finish it next week on Dynamite! YOU PUNK ASS B*TCH!!” The Absolute throws out the ultimatum, will he and King Switch finally put an end to this?
Tony Khan has an announcement for AEW Collision.
“It’s great to be here tonight in San Diego. The last few weeks, we made some announcements regarding the debut of AEW Saturday Night Collision, starting June 17th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. I’m here tonight to give you a little more information about the debut of AEW Collision. I’m here to announce that AEW Collision, beginning June 17th, will feature… CM Punk!” Fans go wild hearing that! The Best in the World, the polarizing Plus Delta of AEW, is making his return in his hometown! What kind of collision are we going to say for that debut episode?
Triple Threat: Swerve Strickland VS “Big Bill” Morrissey VS Trent Beretta!
The Blackjack Battle Royal was a bust for everyone hoping to take the title off Orange Cassidy, but there was a lot of beef between these three men during all the chaos. Who scores a much easier win under 33% odds versus the one in 21?

Kris Statlander speaks.
“Today’s date is May 28th, 2023. It’s the PPV, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I am officially cleared. I am your NEW TBS Champion. It’s been a long time coming, and this whole time, I was never really sure if I deserved it. Not sure if I was someone deserving of this moment. It just really shows me how much not only does this place mean to me, but how much I mean to AEW. It’s just so nice to physically hold something to feel like you deserve it for once. Not only am I gonna prove to everyone that they were right, but I’m gonna prove to myself that this is my time. And I’m gonna have the best damn title reign anyone’s ever seen.” But she’s already putting the title on the line, will her time be short?
Renee Paquette is on stage.
“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass.” Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn are here, and Renee says that unfortunately, thing didn’t go their way in that AEW World Trios Championship match. They asked for this time, so the floor is theirs. Billy says Renee is right, things did not go quite the way they’d planned. But that’s okay! Because anyone can get beat at any given time. Billy’s biggest regret is that he let his guys down. Caster says that Billy shouldn’t blame himself. They win as a team and lose as a team. They won a lot as a trio, undefeated until facing House of Black.
And see, Caster is the best wrestler alive, Bowens is the Five Tool Player, and Billy is the legend! They ARE The Acclaimed, they are the People’s Choice. Bowens says that is right. And their goal remains the same. A few months ago, Acclaimed were screwed outta tag team gold. Fans boo that, but the Acclaimed want gold back! “And this man, this legend, after over 30 YEARS of giving his all to the business, of giving his all to each and every one of you, giving his all to us, this man deserves to hold gold one more time!” Fans love the sound of that! They chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”
Bowens says do not worry about it, Billy, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So the goal remains the same, and the three SCISSOR FINGER~! Will they cut down the House of Black one way or another? Or will the House always win?
Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.
The bile rises in his throat as he has to say these names. “Here comes… Don Callis! And… Konosuke Takeshita.” Fans boo as Callis & Takeshita walk their way out to no music, but with highlights of Callis helping the BCC cheat the Elite. Callis & Takeshita go to the ring to join Schiavone, and Schiavone says, “Sunday night, Double or Nothing, not so sure. We talked to Bryan Danielson, whose side are you on? Whose side are you with? One thing we know for sure, you apparently have yourself a new protégé.” Callis grins but fans boo, and Callis says he sincerely hopes that such boos are for Kenny Omega! No, they’re for Callis.
Callis continues to say he is the REAL victim here! He has done everything for Kenny Omega! The booing gets louder! And they’re even flipping Callis off! Callis says Kenny only had what he had because of Callis! The AEW World Championship? All Callis! Kenny chose his friends. Every morning, Callis has to get up and look at the scar on his head! 23 stitches! And Callis blames it all on Kenny! Kenny destroyed Callis’ family! And maybe Callis lost a nephew, but he gained a son in Konosuke Takeshita! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Callis says Takeshita is the best athlete he has ever seen in wrestling! 6’3″, 240 pounds, and you know who he’s better than?
Konosuke is better than Rikidōzan! Better than Antonio Inoki! Better than Keiji Mutoh! And yes, better than Kazuchika Okada! But you know who else he’s better than? We’ll see it very soon, too! Konosuke is better than Kenny Omega! Konosuke gets the mic to tell everyone Japanese that they’re all stupid! Kenny Omega is nothing! And they all know it! Then in English, “We will destroy the Elite! We will destroy Kenny… Omega!” Callis tells Kenny that he destroyed his family so Callis is building a new one! And that new family will cut the Elite out of All Elite Wrestling! Fans boo as hard as they’ve ever booed before, but will that not stop what Callis is planning for Kenny Omega?
Arn Anderson & Wardlow speak.
The Enforcer says that before Double or Nothing and the ladder match, he cut through all the BS and asked Wardlow one question: What are you willing to do to Christian Cage? Everyone’s giving Arn a bunch of hoopla about biting that giant lizard’s thumb. But Wardlow got manhandled, and when you snatch Arn by the neck, what you think’s gonna happen? Wardlow says Luchasaurus found out not to get involved with their business. Arn wants to know what Wardlow’s willing to do, and he answered that. There are no more limits! If Luchasaurus wants to be next, Wardlow will be more than happy to finish the job!
Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin VS The Gates of Agony w/ Prince Nana!
Freshly Squeezed is still the AEW International Champion after facing the steepest odds possible, while the Relentless One could not overcome MJF, Sammy Guevara & Jack Perry all at once to become AEW World Champion. But will this unlikely duo keep going against even this daunting duo in front of them?
The teams sort out, but Bishop Kaun shoves Darby off the corner! And Toa Liona goes after Cassidy with clubbing forearms! The bell rings, Kaun keeps after Darby on the outside, and Cassidy just gets his jacket and shirt off. Kaun CHOPS Darby, Liona pushes Cassidy down, then Liona drags Cassidy up to whip corner to corner. Cassidy tumbles up and out, baits Liona in and shoulders into him.

Fans boo but The Mogul Embassy is pleased while Dynamite goes picture in picture. Kaun drags Darby but he’s deadweight. Kaun gets Darby up and into the ring, covers, TWO! Kaun rains down fists on Darby, lets off to soak up the heat, and then he drags Darby back up. Kaun fishhooks the nose but the ref reprimands.

Kaun tags in, Darby is in the ropes, and Kaun kicks him to the floor. Kaun taunts Cassidy, then goes out to stomp away on Darby. Darby scrambles into the ring but Kaun is after him. Kaun stands on Darby’s hands to keep him from reaching Cassidy! Kaun stomps the hands, puts him in the Gates’ corner, then CHOPS him! Darby sputters, drops to a knee, and Kaun taunts Cassidy. Fans rally as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Liona then BLASTS Cassidy, drags Darby up, URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Darby is hanging tough and fans fire up! Tag to Kaun and the Gates circle Darby.

But the rest of the Mogul Embassy makes their way to the ring! Swerve & Cage glare right at Darby & Cassidy, and Liona & Kaun both get up. But wait! Here comes STIIIIING! The Icon is back, and he has his baseball bat! Fans are thunderous as Sting steps into the ring and the Embassy backs off. Will Swerve’s house have to worry about the showtime?
“AEW fans, AEW fans! Oh my God, clock’s ticking and you’re running out of competition. Darby Allin, you sweet, sweet little emo b*tch. Once again, you found yourself victim to a maneuver as simple as a headlock takeover. Now if that’s not telling about my competition around here, I don’t know what is! You are running out of gladiators for me to slay, you are running out of people you could possibly claim that are better than me. And you know it. Once again, it has been made abundantly clear, and this time, in Sin City, that nobody is on the level of the Devil!” Will anyone ever exorcise MJF away from the AEW World Championship?
Tony Schiavone is once again in the ring.
He welcomes us back, and thanks San Diego for being part of this great night. But wait, here comes Hook! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, the undefeated FTW Champion, steps in the ring. Schiavone says Hook once again helped the Hardy Boyz against Ethan Page at Double or Nothing. But then, what is next for Hook? But wait, someone interrupts. It’s Jose of La Faccion Ingobernable! He has Dralistico y Preston Vance with him, and he “apologizes” for interrupting Hook’s time, but this is the only way LFI is gonna get TV time here! There are two studs here who have never been given opportunities the way Hook has.
Fans boo but Jose says they know it’s true. Rush is too dangerous to be on TV, so he isn’t here right now. Salud, Rush. But where are the fans when they need LFI? When LFI is looking for chances and they get NONE? But they’re gonna start taking opportunities! Show this perro what LFI is about! Dralistico & Vance mug Hook, but here comes JUNGLE BOY! Jack Perry has helped Hook out before, and he’s here again, with a chair! JB JAMS Dralistico, JAMS Vance, and then he SMACKS them both down! Jose sneaks up, but JB sees him first. Jose runs away into the ring, but that’s where Hook is!
Hook clinches to hit the EL CAMINO! Jose flops out of the ring, JB joins Hook in the ring, and they fist bump. Will #JungleHook reunite to shut LFI up?
Backstage interview with The Outcasts.
Renee is with Saraya, Ruby Soho, and the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm. How does it feel this time around to be champion? Oh, c’mon, look at her! She’s having a great time! She has the world title, the world’s best friends, and she couldn’t be doing any better. A lot of people say she’s just very lucky, but luck’s got nothing to do with this. Toni’s been wrestling since she was 13 years old, a child really! Over half her life! That’s because she’s been all over the world, carrying everyone’s bags and doing everything she can to get to this point.
The Outcasts look around this locker room, and they see no one who could carry Toni’s bags. Ruby says Toni is being very humble. No one anywhere could match Toni’s work ethic. Toni is gracing the AEW fans with her presence during the House Rules live shows. And she’ll even defend this title. That is what a fighting champion does! Oh so humble! Saraya loves Toni so much. But really, there is really no one worthy of carrying Toni’s bags. Not at all. But they’ll keep looking out. And as for “luck,” the only lucky ones are the fans. Who will be “lucky” enough to have some #ToniTime this summer?
AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Nyla Rose!
The Galaxy’s Greatest made perhaps the greatest return possible, answering the open challenge of the cocky Jade Cargill. Not only did she end Jade’s reign, she ended the undefeated streak! But will Kris regret putting it all on the line so soon? Or will she start her own incredible reign?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Mama Statlander holds onto her baby!
The bell rings and fans rally as the two tie up. The two are in a deadlock, but then they break. Kris shoves Nyla, they tie up again, and they go around. Nyla puts Kris in a corner, the ref counts, and Nyla lets off. Kris dodges the cheap shot to fire off forearms! Nyla dodges to get some air, but Kris SHOTGUNS Nyla down! Fans fire up, Kris is after Nyla but the scoop doesn’t work. Nyla scoops Kris but she slips free to scoop again! Nyla is still really big, and she scoops Kris to SLAM her! SENTON flops as Kris moves! Kris wraps on the body scissors! Nyla endures, those knee braces are right in the ribs!
Nyla scrambles, gets the ROPEBREAK, and Kris lets go. Kris storms up but Nyla shoulders into her! And bumps her off the buckles! Kris falls and Nyla stalks her. Nyla kicks Kris around, drags her up, and brings her over to ropes. Kris fights the suplex and tries to suplex Nyla! Nyla CLUBS Kris, CLAWS her back, but Kris fights with body shots! Fans rally and Kris still tries a suplex. Nyla knees low, brings Kris around, and snap suplexes her into buckles! We see Taya Valkyrie is watching backstage, surely upset that she didn’t get the TBS title off Jade. Nyla grins as she soaks up the heat and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Nyla taunts Kris, drags her up, and then bumps her off buckles. Nyla stomps Kris, digs her boots in, but the ref counts. Nyla has Kris on the apron before she lets off. Nyla then puts Kris on the ropes to CHOKE and even bend back! Nyla puppets Kris’ mouth, but lets off as the ref counts. Kris flounders, Nyla brings her up to suplex! Cover, ONE!! Nyla grows frustrated, but she stands on Kris before getting a leg. HALF CRAB! Kris endures, reaches out, but Nyla talks trash while she CLUBS away on the knee! Kris crawls, ROPEBREAK! Nyla lets go, Kris goes to a corner, but Nyla RAMS into her!
Nyla pulls the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Nyla lets off and Kris hobbles to another corner. Nyla is after her in the corner with body shots! Nyla then goes corner to corner to ELBOW Kris, and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Kris down with a chinlock. Kris endures the knee in the back, fans rally up, and Kris fights, only for Nyla to CLUB her in the chest! Nyla clamps onto the arms to keep Kris down, but still Kris fights. Fans rally, kris throws body shots and elbows, but Nyla CHOP BLOCKS! Kris falls, Nyla gets that leg, and has a modified Half Crab! Kris endures, so Nyla stomps away on the leg before going back to the Crab!
Dynamite returns to single picture as Kris fights with her free leg. Nyla lets go, Kris kips up, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!! Kris is still in this but Nyla runs, only to miss the splash! Kris runs to DISCUS LARIAT! Nyla stays up to Kris LARIATS again, ROCKS Nyla and ROUNDHOUSES her! Fans fire up with Kris and she runs in at the corner, UPPERCUT! Kris goes side to side, KNEE! Nyla staggers, Kris brings her in, BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Kris is surprised! But Kris pounds the mat and fans rally with her. Kris drags Nyla to a drop zone and climbs up the corner.
Kris reaches the top but Nyla trips her up! Kris hits the buckles on the way down! Nyla runs in to SPLASH! Kris sits down, Nyla calls her shot and runs again, but Kris bails out! Nyla stops the cannonball to go tot he apron, CANNONBALL to the floor! Nyla grins and she brings Kris up to RAM her into railing! Fans boo but Nyla runs in to CANNONBALL against the railing! Nyla puts Kris back in the ring, stalks her, and catches Kris’ haymaker into a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kris survives and now Nyla is surprised! Nyla drags Kris up but Kris JAWBREAKERS! Kris puts Nyla in the drop zone and goes up again!
Fans fire up as Kris aims, to 450 SPLASH!! Cover, Kris wins!
Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)
The Galaxy’s Greatest has her first win as champion in the books! Taya is not amused, though. Will La Wera Loca get one more shot at that title? Will the third time be the charm? Or will things not go her way now that Mama’s home?
BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!
It’ll be regularly scheduled, 10 PM Eastern on Friday night, but it’s gonna be a CHAMPIONSHIP Friday! The AAA Mega Championship is on the line as El Hijo Del Vikingo defends against Dralistico AND Komander in a Triple Threat! Will the numbers spell disaster for Vikingo in San Diego? And in her first defense, Willow Nightingale puts up the NJPW Strong Women’s Championship against The Queen of Joshi, Emi Sakura! Will the Babe with the Power be too sweet to be sour? Plus, the NJPW World Television Championship makes its AEW Rampage debut as Zack Sabre Jr. defends against Action Andretti!
But that’s not all! Assuming he defeats Alex Coughlin on ROH TV this week, Katsuyori Shibata will defend the ROH Pure Championship against #TAIGASTYLE, Lee Moriarty! Will The Wrestler still be the champion after this week is over?
BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!
Ricky Starks put out the challenge, and Jay White accepted! In a match where Juice Robinson and FTR are all banned from ringside, The Absolute and the Switchblade will finally settle things 1v1! Plus, after big wins from both men tonight, Orange Cassidy defends the AEW International Championship 1v1 against Swerve Strickland! Will the Mogul Embassy grab up even more gold?
Mixed Tag: Chris Jericho & Saraya VS Adam Cole & Britt Baker!
It would seem the Unsanctioned Match at Double or Nothing was not enough for anyone to end this! The Wizard & The Knight called out the Undisputed Couple for this match, and they obliged! Will Jericho & Saraya be the ones standing tall with a fireball? Or will San Diego be all about The Boom?
Fans sing Judas for Jericho, but Saraya still calls them all losers. The teams sort out and Jericho starts against Cole. Cole and Jericho fire off hands right at the bell! Jericho gets the edge, CHOPS, then CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Cole fires back, Jericho ROCKS him, then puts him in a corner, Jericho ROCKS Cole again and again, whips corner to corner, and Jericho clotheslines! Fans are torn but Saraya says they better cheer! Jericho goes back to Cole, but Cole turns things around to ROCK Jericho with forearm after forearm, then he CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS, Cole CHOPS, they CHOP back and forth!
Jericho gets the edge with those CHOPS, but Cole rakes the eyes! Saraya complains but Cole stalks Jericho. Cole stomps Jericho, digs a boot in, but lets off as the ref counts. Jericho pokes Cole in the eyes! Jericho then throws Cole out, goes out after him, and fans fire up as Jericho whips Cole into railing! Jericho puts Cole back in, stalks him to a corner and CHOPS again! Jericho whips, Cole comes back and he CLOBBERS Jericho! Jericho hurries away, Cole dares him to come back, but Jericho tags out to Saraya. Saraya dares Cole to do something, but fans fire up as Britt steps in! And she fires off on Saraya!
Saraya shoves, Britt dodges and SLINGBLADES! And NORTHERN LIGHTS! Cover, TWO! Britt CLUBS Saraya, brings her up to Alabama Lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Britt revels in the cheers and spells it out, “D! M! D!” Britt then sits Saraya up, runs, but Saraya distracts the ref so Jericho can trip Britt! Fans boo but Cole rushes Jericho! Saraya stomps Britt, the ref keeps Cole from getting at Jericho, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Saraya covers Britt, shouts at the ref, and the ref returns, TWO! Saraya drags Britt up to HEADBUTT her down! Saraya paces around Britt, drags her up, and throws her down. Saraya points to Jericho, they “tag,” and then Jericho eggs Britt on. The ref tells Jericho to get out, that’s not the kind of match this is. Saraya taunts Cole while Jericho exits, and Saraya stomps Britt. Saraya drags Britt around, puts her in the ropes, then goes to the apron to fire off knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off to step back inside and they argue. Jericho talks trash on Britt but she swipes at him! Cole protests but Saraya stomps Britt down.
Saraya drags Britt up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Saraya argues with the ref but the count was fair. Saraya drags Britt into a chinlock stretch but Britt endures. Fans rally, Britt fights up, but Saraya CLUBS her back down! Saraya brings Britt around, CLUBS her, then Saraya “tags” Jericho again. Jericho spells it out, “D! M! D!” then signals the fans can shove it! Saraya stomps Britt, Jericho shouts at Britt, and the ref keeps Cole back. Saraya stands on Britt’s hair, pulls on the arms, but lets off as the ref counts. Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya tosses Britt out. Saraya then goes out, Cole and Jericho shout at each other and the ref is distracted.
Saraya waves to the ramp, and out come the Outcasts! Ruby & Toni stomp away on Britt! Fans boo, Saraya drags Britt into the ring, and they get away with all of that! But HIKARU SHIDA is here! She SMACKS the Outcasts around with the kendo stick and fans fire up! Saraya is furious, but Britt rolls her up! TWO!! Saraya escapes and CLUBS Britt down! Jericho storms in and shouts at Britt, but Britt glares at him. Britt SLAPS Jericho, DECKS Saraya, and tags in Cole! Fans fire up as Cole rallies on Jericho with forearms! Cole whips, Jericho reverses but Cole CLOBBERS him! And ELBOW! And BOOT!
Cole rains down fists, just like at the end of their Unsanctioned match! Jericho pushes Cole away, CHOPS him, but, Cole PELES! Cole whips, Jericho holds ropes and avoids the dropkick! LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives but Jericho scrambles away, hot tag to Saraya! That allows Britt to run in and rally on Saraya! Fans fire up and Britt hits a NECKBREAKER! Britt then hauls Saraya up but Saraya wrenches out to kick low! Saraya whips Britt to a corner, storms up, but into a BOOT! Britt goes up, Saraya runs back in to ROCK Britt!

Saraya survives but Britt tags Cole in! Cole BOOTS Jericho, hits a BACKSTABBER, and goes to the corner. Cole climbs up, aims, and Jericho stands, PANAMA- NO, Jericho trips Cole! Cole resists as Jericho tries to turn him! WALLS OF JERICHO!! Fans fire up, Saraya BLASTS Britt!! Cole endures, powers up, crawls forward and reaches out, but Jericho drags him back from the ropes! Fans fire up more as Jericho sits deep!
Wait! Britt gets her glove! Britt puts the glove on, steps into the ring and she fishhooks Jericho!! Jericho lets Cole go and fans fire up! Britt puts Jericho in the Rings of Saturn! LOCKJAW!! Saraya STOMPS Britt! The ref reprimands everyone, but Saraya goes to her corner. Cole tunes up the band as he aims at Jericho. Jericho stands, Cole rushes in, CODE BREAKER hits first!! Cover, TWO!!! Cole survives and Jericho can’t believe it! Jericho and Cole throw forearms back and forth and fans rally up. They stand, CHOP and forearm on repeat, and Cole gets the edge! Cole whips, Jericho reverses but DOUBLE LARIATS collide!
Saraya and Britt shout for Jericho and Cole, both men crawl for their corners. Hot tag to Saraya and Britt jumps in! Britt and Saraya fire off forearms! Saraya hits low, whips, but Britt holds ropes to then reel Saraya in! Saraya wrenches out, HOOK KICK to the GOOD KNIGHT!! Cover, TWO?!?! Britt survives and shocks Saraya! Jericho has Floyd the Baseball Bat! He aims, swings, but Britt doges and Cole SUPERKICKS! Then Britt SUPERKICKS Saraya! Then they DOUBLE SUPEKRICK Jericho!! Fans are thunderous, Cole goes to the corner and Britt tags him in! Cole drops the kneepad, takes aim, “I told you!”
Jericho sits up, into the BOOM!! Cover, Cole & Britt win!
Winners: Adam C0le & Britt Baker, by pinfall
The Undisputed Couple stands tall! The power of love, but also just all that pent up frustration, wins out in the end, while Jericho throws a fit! Cole dares Jericho to keep fighting then! Jericho throws in a chair, and even the ring bell! Cole and Britt grab those for themselves, and that makes Jericho back off. Can Cole & Britt finally move on from The Wizard and his schemes to go get themselves some gold?
A very good aftermath show for AEW after only a very good Double or Nothing. Good promos from Kris Statlander, Wardlow and MJF to follow their title wins. A little surprising that Kris had her first defense so soon but I suppose this gets it out of the way, and it gets Kris going on doing her best to match Jade’s streak. Taya watching backstage makes some sense, and I sense her turning Heel over being denied twice. Sadly, I think Taya is going to go 0-3 for the TBS Champion, because if she didn’t beat Jade, she’s not going to beat the person who beat Jade. And I do appreciate that Wardlow is calling out Luchasaurus, he’s being a proactive champion.
MJF of course isn’t, he’s just expecting AEW to find somebody. But I feel like, with Tony Khan letting us know CM Punk IS returning, that’s just the natural course of things for the world title. AEW Collision’s success is not fully dependent on CM Punk being back, but it will definitely incentivize Chicago fans to show up. But I love that there were plenty of fans who hated that news as there were who loved it in San Diego. And MJF VS Punk is an obvious route given how the Pillars he cheated at Double or Nothing are now going to other stories in the meantime. Sammy was the only absent one, but he’s surely preparing to be a parent.
Darby & Cassidy had an awesome tag match with The Gates of Agony, and I figured Darby & Cassidy would win. Swerve also won an awesome Triple Threat against Bill and Trent, and of course Swerve is moving on to a title. I feel like Swerve should be the one to dethrone Cassidy. He’s got The Mogul Embassy to help him cheat so that technically keeps Cassidy strong, and then Swerve can bring that title into a feud with Darby or in whatever finish we FINALLY get of Swerve VS Keith Lee. Then Jungle Boy returns to teaming with Hook just because there’s no other singles title open. JungleHook VS LFI is still going to be fun, and maybe we get Jungle Boy VS Rush. But honestly, I almost thought JB was gonna turn on Hook there. Heel Jack Perry taking the FTW Championship could be pretty cool.
Great promo from Bullet Club Gold and then great brawl with FTR and Starks. Starks VS White is going to end things one way or another, but I feel like it has to be White’s win. Then BCG VS FTR can be for the AEW World Tag Team Championships going into All In London. Speaking of titles, Championship Rampage is loaded, though I’m surprised there wasn’t just another Battle of the Belts special. I wonder if Battle of the Belts goes away with Collision being on Saturdays. Pretty sure all champions retain, though, because NONE of those titles are AEW property. Also, I feel that’s irresponsible to automatically say it’s Shibata VS Moriarty when Shibata VS Coughlin is airing tomorrow night on ROH.
The Acclaimed had a good promo with Renee on stage, and I figured they’d stick together and try again. They’ll probably choose a Open House Rules stipulation next time, I look forward to something wild from them. Really good promo from The Outcasts, and Storm could face just about anyone in her first defense of the world title. From how things went in the main event, pretty sure it’s Shida since she is still fighting against The Outcasts. Britt & Cole of course win against Jericho & Saraya, but that was a pretty fun Mixed Tag. And if Shida doesn’t beat Storm, I bet we get Britt VS Storm at like All Out or something.
Great opener of BCC VS Lucha Bros & Bandido, and Bryan was pretty good on commentary. I figured BCC would win, they’re going to keep things rolling from Double or Nothing. And good promo from The Elite and Dark Order, because it kept up the continuity from over the years. Hangman saying Kenny was out of the country but not in Canada totally hints at him being in Japan to reconnect with Kota Ibushi, which is definitely the next phase of this. Elite plus Ibushi VS BCC plus Konosuke, Blood & Guts, that has to be it. And speaking of, Callis and Konosuke had a great promo, especially factoring in that nuclear Heel heat Callis has. Like, every other Heel wishes they had the level of booing, jeering and middle fingers Callis had aimed at him.
My Score: 8.7/10
