Hangman Page & Matt Hardy VS The Hybrid2!

The Cowboy didn’t want to be part of Big Money Matt’s party, but he still signed a contract. It wasn’t the one Hardy handed him, but the contract was put on record. The fine print aside, will the combination of Hangman & Hardy cash in big against Jack Evans & Angelico?

Hangman keeps Evans from his corner to tag Hardy back in. Hardy and Hangman double suplex, then Hardy fires up as he calls for the Twist! Angelico gets in but Hardy DECKS him! Hardy dodges Evans, Evans hops up and Hardy CLUBS him! Angelico tags in as Hardy brings Evans out for RAZOR’S EDGE! Hardy covers Evans but Angelico is legal, and Angelico KICKS Hardy in the back! Angelico DECKS Hangman, drags Hardy up and bumps him off buckles. Angelico throws jabs and stomps, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico tags Evans, TH2 coordinate to back suplex DOUBLE STOMP! Evans DECKS Hangman then covers Hardy, TWO!

Evans drags Hardy up and clubs him down, to then tag in Angelico. TH2 mugs Hardy, Hardy hits back and fans rally up. Hardy runs, Evans traps him at the ropes, Hangman protests as Hardy fights TH2 off, but Evans kicks and hotshots Hardy into Angelico’s roll up! TWO!! Angelico shifts around and floats to a facelock. Hardy fights up, Angelico brings him around and tags Evans. TH2 mugs Hardy, Evans brings him around and bumps him off buckles. Evans whips corner to corner, handsprings in but into a kick from Hardy!

DELETE!” with Hardy as Angelico staggers up, into the TWIST OF FATE! Cover, Hangman & Hardy win!

Winners: Hangman Page & Matt Hardy, by pinfall

That was a bit harrier than their first time together, but Hardy and Hangman are 2-0! Is this the beginning of a beautiful partnership?

Hardy gets a mic to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Hangman Adam Page!” How great does he look? Like a million bucks! No, a BILLION bucks! Hardy is excited because Hangman is going to make a LOT of money! That means Hardy makes 30% of a LOT of money! Hangman made the right decision, Hardy is proud and happy that Hangman signed with him! Hangman borrows the mic to say Hardy probably didn’t pay attention at the bar. But Hangman had some good friends once tell him, “Always keep an extra set of papers rolled up in your jacket.” Hangman pulled a Brodie Lee?!

Hardy realizes he didn’t read the contract Hangman signed. So now let’s get a legal team to let us know just what was in that contract! Jackson Duvall comes out and Hardy is okay if Hangman added some pork. Jackson gives Hardy the contract and Hardy looks it over. Wait, wait, wait. This isn’t a talent representative contract. This is a match contract for AEW REVOLUTION!! Hangman VS Hardy 1v1?! And if Hardy loses, Hangman gets 100% of HARDY’S earnings for the first quarter of 2021?! What the heck, you carny!? You bamboozled him!! Well okay Hardy was doing similar to Hangman.

But if that’s how it is, then Hangman being an honorable man needs to put something of equal value on the line! If Hardy wins, he gets 100% of Hangman’s earnings from this first quarter! Hangman didn’t see that coming. But Hangman thinks they might have themselves a big money match. They shake on it, but Hardy says Hangman’s finished. Jackson attacks Hangman?! Why?! Because it was ISIAH KASSIDY in the costume! And Hardy offers TH2 $3700 (a rather odd sum) if they kick Hangman’s ass! Kassidy and TH2 rain down fists and stomps on Hangman! But here comes the DARK ORDER!!

Negative One rallies the troops while Alex Reynolds & John Silver run off Kassidy and beat up TH2! Numbers 5, 10, Evil Uno & Stu, and even Cabana, get Hardy and his henchmen to leave the ring! Fans are fired up as Cabana even uses a shoe to beat Angelico! Alan Angels glares at Hardy and fires off haymakers! Hardy throws Angels away, Hangman slingshots in! Hardy narrowly avoids the Buck Shot and gets away with Kassidy! Hangman looks to his friends in the Dark Order, is he going to join them after all? Will Hangman cash in or bust against Big Money Matt at Revolution?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

At least, the six men left, after Sammy Guevara quit. But Alex Marvez focuses on asking Santana & Ortiz about their first opportunity at THE AEW World Tag Team Championships since joining All Elite Wrestling 18 months ago. FINALLY, someone says it! 18 months, and Ortiz finally realized why that is: FEAR. Santana says it is fear within management, and within every tag team that has ever held those titles. “But guess what? The time for running is over! It’s time to pay y’all’s dues to the illest! And here we are to collect!”

MJF interjects to vent about last week. Sammy Guevara crossed the line with zero evidence! Because he thought MJF was trying to frame Sammy with a recording? What kind of a yutz do you take MJF for? Do you think MJF would secretly record you when there is always a camera on him? And yet, despite all these facts staring Sammy straight in his stupid, squinty little face, Sammy has yet to “nut up and apologize” like a man! Chris Jericho tells MJF to shut up about this already! They know what MJF was up to because everyone was watching week after week. MJF was goading Sammy and pushing him over the edge! Congratulations, it worked, Sammy left them. Good job, MJF, this is your fault.

But the majority of this is on Sammy. Damn right! Shut up, MJF. Jericho wanted MJF and Sammy to be in each other’s faces so they could make each other better. MJF figured that out, Sammy did not. And after bad choice after bad choice, the dumbest choice of all was quitting the Inner Circle. When you walk out on the Inner Circle, you walk out on Jericho, and for that reason, Sammy is DEAD to Jericho! Jericho never wants to hear that name again! But onto tonight! Santana & Ortiz will win those AEW Tag Team Championships and bring gold back to the Inner Circle! Let’s go win some championships! But will Proud ‘n’ Powerful win those titles only to defend them against #Y2MJF at Revolution?

AEW has footage of Jade Cargill’s training with Shaq.

This time she’s on the court, and using basketball skills to get her cardio and agility up. She even shows that she can shoot and lay it up with the best of them. Will she and Shaq be in shape to dunk on Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet?

 

Orange Cassidy w/ Chuck Taylor VS Luther w/ Serpentico!

That was almost a tag match with Serpentico and Chuck getting involved, but either way, Cassidy wins big! Will he be more than ready to actually try against Miro?

 

Team Taz heads to the ring!

Taz leads his son, Hook, and The Machine, Brian Cage, to the ring then gets a mic. “Alright so, all week, all’s I’m seeing all week long on AEW social media is Sting is gonna call out Team Taz. That’s all I’m hearing!” But obviously Team Taz is down a few men because Sting’s stupid snow went down south! But hey, Taz says there’s no better time for Sting to come out and call them out! It’s only three, not five! Where you at, Stinger?! Ask and you shall receive, here comes the crow, the snow and the icon! Sting has his bat as he goes to the ring, and Taz has the music shut off.

Taz says Sting stepping in this ring is the worst thing he’s ever done. Sting needs that bat, because without it, he’s done! Darby Allin literally got dragged around in “FTW World,” and Sting needs back-up. Sting’s had that bat for years- Sting tosses the bat aside?! Sting throws off the jacket, too! Oh so he’s gonna be a badass! Sting throws the coat at Cage and fires off haymakers! Sting puts Cage in a corner and stomps away, but Hook uses Sting’s own baseball bat to choke Sting! Sting throws Hook off and JAMS him with the bat, but Cage mule kicks Sting! Cage reels Sting in, puts on out, and POWERBOMBS Sting!! Taz says he told Sting this would happen!

Will the Icon even be able to make it to Revolution? And if he does, will there be more than a baseball bat in his arsenal?

 

Eddie Kingston speaks.

“This is for you people out there that don’t get it! I requested for this match!” Kingston wants tonight’s Six Man, “because there’s three demons I gotta deal with!” One: Lance Archer has been after Kingston since the Casino Battle Royal! They had a Lumberjack match, Archer won, but that doesn’t sit right. Two: Rey Fenix, “a waste of space,” who Kingston never wanted in The Fam! He only ever wanted Fenix’s brother, Pentagon. But then Fenix turns away from them, gets Penta to turn on Kingston, and he thinks he’s not gonna pay for that?!

And then there’s Moxley. An old friend. Moxley is the one Kingston needs to get rid of the most. Kingston can’t get rid of him with drinking, pills, women or whatever. He can only get rid of that demon by beating him up. Will Kingston exorcise his demons? Or will they drag him down and break him down to end tonight’s Dynamite?

 

AEW Media catches up with Kenny Omega and company.

The AEW World Champion is holding a copy of the Young Bucks’ auto-biography, and is telling a group of people that he feels “so blessed.” Don Callis and Michael Nakazawa are with him and are all smiles, until Alex Marvez walks in. That’s not okay, Marvez! A new low from AEW. Omega is talking to a kindergarten class as he offers to read them a story. This is about his two best friends, the Young Bucks. Do the kids know who they are? Yes, they’re the AEW World Tag Team Champions! And before they start, any questions? A boy asks if there are any pictures in the book. Well, uh, there’s one on the cover. Young Bucks, Killing the Business.

Another boy asks if the Bucks are in love. Well, uh, the cover kinda gives that appearance, doesn’t it? But the Bucks are brothers, so on that level, they love each other as family. Now to the story. Omega reads his favorite part. When Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega eventually wrestled in the Tokyo Dome on WrestleKingdom 12, “business went up drastically!” Does anyone know what “drastically” means? No. It means, “by a lot!” Like, a lot a lot. All because of Omega! They made a lot of money! Callis says time is running short, “Uncle Kenny” has to get going. Aw, so sorry! The kids cheer for Kenny and Omega likes that, but he wants them to cheer as young champions. Such a good class! Omega hopes to be back real soon!

On his way out, Omega asks his PR manager, Margaret, how they’re doing. They’re doing great! His numbers are way up! The humanitarian angle is working wonderfully. They’re finally getting that under 10 demographic they’ve been aiming for! Speaking of, one little boy wants to play with Omega. Callis says they can’t, Uncle Kenny’s gotta get going. But the kids can play with Uncle Nakazawa! YAY~! No, the kids don’t like Nakazawa! They want Omega! One kid even kicks Nakazawa in the shin! The kids gang up on Nakazawa but Omega and Callis can’t be part of this so they’ve gotta get going. Will Nakazawa be okay? Will Omega continue to build his brand across all ages?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Santana & Ortiz w/ The Inner Circle!

Despite having to defend these titles at Revolution, Matt & Nick Jackson don’t want to wait! They want payback on the Proud ‘n’ Powerful for eliminating them in the tag team battle royal before going after #Y2MJF, but will they only end up ensuring the Inner Circle has these titles either way?

Time to get working on a list of names! Brandi heads off but Cody sticks around to be on commentary for the next match!

FTR VS The Sydal Brothers!

The self-proclaimed Best Tag Team in the World want to #FindTheirRedemption and get back to those tag titles we just saw be defended. But will the reunited Sydal Brothers, Matt & Mike, prove that blood is thicker than even a resume like FTR’s?

The teams sort out and Cash Wheeler starts with Mike, and the two circle as fans rally up. They tie up, Mike gets around but Cash standing switches to back suplex high and HARD!

Cash drags Mike up, whips him and CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Mike flops out of the ring, Cash soaks up the heat while mocking the Zen lifestyle of the Sydals. Dax is back and he tags in to fetch Mike and CHOP him against the apron. Dax puts Mike in, drags him up and reels him in for a snap suplex! Then Dax drops a leg, drops an elbow, and drops the headbutt! Cover, TWO! Dax drags Mike away from Matt to throw a BIG uppercut! Tag to Cash, FTR has Mike in the ropes for a DOUBLE ROPE GUILLOTINE! Cash soaks up more heat and drags Mike up to fireman’s carry. Cash flips Mike over for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!

Cash drags Mike into a half nelson chinlock and thrashes him about! Mike endures, Cash grinds him down and smothers him into the mat! Cash puts as much weight as he can on Mike but Mike endures and fights up! Mike reaches for Matt but Cash keeps him away! They go around and around and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Dax keeps Mike from Matt with a facelock. Mike blocks Dax’s suplex attempts, then tags in Matt! Dax gets Mike up but Matt saves him, and then Matt gives Mike the boost to headscissor Dax down! Cash runs in, Matt ROUNDHOUSES him down! Matt fires off kicks on Dax, then sobats Cash! Dax swings but Matt ducks to KNEE and LIGHTNING SPIRAL! Dax bails out to save himself but Matt fires up with the fans. Matt aims and slingshots to wreck FTR, then Mike is up top to ARIHARA MOONSAULT!

Dax gets Matt with a POWERBOMB! Cash drags Matt up to SNAP DRAGON! Bridging cover, but Mike breaks it!

Dax drags Mike up but Mike ROUNDHOUSES him! Cash shoves Mike right out but Matt rolls Cash up with a bridge! TWO and Cash gets to a corner, Matt runs in, is put outside but Mike tags in! DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES for Cash, and Matt goes up top! DOUBLE METEORA! Mike is up top, HUGE SPLASH! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Cash survives but Matt hurries up top.

Mike lands on his feet, headlocks Cash, but Dax tags in as Cash powers out! Mike slides under FTR but runs into the BIG RIG!! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

Tully Blanchard couldn’t be here because of weather, but FTR did it by #FollowingTheRules! Or at least, skirting them. And while the medic wants to check on Mike, FTR grab the med kit! They bring out SCISSORS! They want to cut Mike Sydal’s hair! But the lights go out!? And the titantron turns on, and Luchasaurus’ damaged mask is on a table! But Luchasaurus has his horns back!! And when the lights come on, Jurassic Express is in the ring!! Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt go after Dax while Luchasaurus fires off on Cash! Fans fire up as Luchasaurus and JB whip FTR, to SUPERKICK and TAIL WHIP!!

JB gets Dax in the SNARE TRAP! Luchasaurus gives Cash the JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Fans are fired up as the boys and their dinosaur stand tall over FTR! Will Cash & Dax #FeelTrueRegret for thinking they could humiliate and intimidate these three?

 

AEW sets up next week’s Dynamite!

After the trick Hardy played on Hangman, the Cowboy goes after Isiah Kassidy in a 1v1 match! After Monday’s YouTube broadcast, we will know all of the semifinalists in the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament, leading to the first semifinal match on Dynamite! Team Taz tunes up for Revolution as Brian Cage & Ricky Starks take on the Varisty Blondes, Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr! And after the chaos that happened after the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Brandon Cutler and Jake Hager go 1v1! Will the Dungeon Master avenge his friends?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Eddie Kingston. As requested, this Six Man Tag tonight. Always with a stick up his ass.” Kingston has problems with Archer, with Fenix and with Moxley. Even after all this time, even after everything Moxley and Kingston put each other through, Moxley is still the only one here who actually cares about Kingston. But Moxley will whoop Kingston’s ass as many times as it takes to get that through to him. Moxley has a lot of business. After tonight, he looks to NJPW Strong, 2/26, where the whole world will watch him “attempt to break Kenta’s neck and put his ass in the ground for good.” Then will be the rest of the sons o’ bitches when Mox takes back his AEW World Championship from Omega!

Moxley told Omega there is no running or hiding. “As long as it takes to settle the score, you’re still in my crosshairs.” That time is coming closer and closer “to pull the trigger.” Will Moxley still be IWGP United States Champion when it’s time to come back for #PrettyPlatinum?

 

Six Man Tag: Eddie Kingston & The Fam VS Jon Moxley, Rey Fenix & Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake!

The Butcher, The Blade & The Bunny are still loyal to the Mad King, perhaps blindly so. But they vow to help him get rid of all of his enemies in one fell swoop! But will it be easier said than done against the Maniac, the Firebird and the Murderhawk Monster?

The trios don’t even sort out, they just brawl! Archer throws Butcher out, Fenix DECKS Blade, and they all brawl while Moxley chases Kingston out of the ring! Butcher RAMS Archer into barriers, Fenix POSTS Blade and Kingston throws hands on Moxley near the stage. Fenix drags Blade down, Butcher and Archer brawl towards the timekeeper’s area, and Moxley whips Kingston into railing near Blade and Fenix while Bunny freaks out!

Butcher taunts Moxley’s team before hitting a corner splash! Tag to Blade, Butcher feeds Moxley to the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Blade drags Moxley, whips him to the corner, but Moxley hits Kingston and Butcher! Moxley spins Blade around to hit a neckbreaker! Hot tag to Archer!

Archer rallies on The Fam, DECKS Kingston but Blade throws a haymaker! Archer doesn’t even blink, he just ROCKS Blade! Then choke grips Blade to OVERHEAD TOSS him to a corner! Archer runs in to back elbow, runs corner to corner to elbow again, then clinches for a BELLY2BELLY! Archer hauls Blade back up, goes up the corner and fans fire up as Archer walks the tightrope. Butcher hurries over, but Fenix slips in to KICK Butcher down! Archer gives Blade some OLD SCHOOL! Archer sees Kingston and DECKS him just because! Fans are fired up with Archer as AEW goes picture in picture!

Archer stalks Blade, drags him over, and tags in Moxley. Moxley runs in to RAM a shoulder into Blade, then he snapmares Blade to run and Penalty Kick! Moxley glares at Kingston, drags Blade up and snap suplexes him to the corner. Tag to Archer, Archer stomps Blade, then Fenix tags in to springboard stomp Blade! Fenix drags Blade around to a cover, TWO! Fenix KICKS Blade in the back, drags him to a facelock and throws body shots. Tag to Archer, they mug Blade and Archer snap suplexes Blade across the way! Archer dares Kingston to tag in but he drags Blade away to bump him off buckles.

Tag to Moxley and he stares Kingston down before running in to forearm smash Blade! Moxley brings Blade up to back suplex, then drop an elbow! Cover, but Kingston drags Moxley off it! Kingston flips Moxley off and Moxley gives it back. The ref keeps the peace, Moxley stomps Blade and drags him up to wrench the arm. Tag to Archer, Archer throws a stiff knee and a clubbing forearm! Archer clamps onto Blade’s ears and pulls! The ref reprimands, Archer lets go to slap Blade, and he eggs Blade on. Blade claws Archer’s face but he doesn’t flinch, and instead smashes Blade off his knee!

AEW returns to single picture as Archer runs, but Kingston grabs his foot! Archer drags Kingston up but Kingston hotshots him! Blade and Butcher DOUBLE SHOULDER Archer down! They put Archer in the corner to mug him, Butcher throws haymakers and Kingston holds Archer’s foot down! The ref reprimands them all but Butcher CHOPS Archer, then digs Archer’s face into the ropes! Butcher stomps and ROCKS Archer, but the ref has to keep Moxley back. Butcher grinds forearms into Archer’s head, but the ref counts. Butcher stops, but Archer SLAPS Kingston! Kingston is furious and he tips the timekeeper’s table over out of anger.

Butcher finally lets off on Archer and Archer goes to an open corner. Butcher throws haymakers and CHOPS, then puts Archer back in the Fam’s corner. Blade tags in, The Fam mugs Archer and Blade tags Kingston back in. Kingston throws body shots and haymakers and headbutts! Kingston puts Archer in an open corner to ram his shoulder in over an dover! Kingston CHOPS, digs his forearms in, then tags in Butcher. The Fam mugs Archer again, and Butcher throws hands. Butcher runs but Archer choke grips! Archer sees Kingston run in and catches him, but now Blade runs in! Archer HEADBUTTS Blade away, then Moxley clotheslines Blade and himself out of the ring!

Kingston and Butcher fight off Archer’s choke grips and CHOP away at the ropes! They double whip Archer, he breaks the clothesline and DOUBLE CROSSBODIES! Archer tags Fenix in and Fenix runs at Butcher to springboard SOBAT! Fenix puts Butcher up top, goes to the apron, but Kingston runs in. Fenix CHOPS Kingston first, knuckle locks with him, and then springboards to KICK Butcher and FLYING ARM-DRAG Kingston! Fenix FLIES to take out Blade! Fenix slingshot somersaults and gets Butcher with a CUTTER! Fans are thunderous as Fenix  goes up, HUGE FROG SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!!

Kingston RAMS Moxley into railing, crawls into the ring as Fenix runs, and gives Fenix an EXPLODER! Archer BOOTS Kingston down, then runs at Butcher. Butcher dodges, comes back and BODY CHECKS Archer! Moxley reels Butcher in but Butcher shoves him away, only for Moxley to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX!

Moxley stays up to LARIAT Kingston! Moxley drags Kingston back up, DEATH RIDER!!! Cover, Moxley and team win!!

Winners: Jon Moxley, Rey Fenix & Lance Archer, by pinfall

Kingston’s “demons” beat him down and won out in the end! Moxley tells his best frenemy that he’s up for it any time, but then the GOOD BROTHERS attack! Gallows & Anderson beat Moxley down for what he said about coming after Omega! And speaking of, Omega heads to the ring! “Hey, Jon! Wow, don’t look so tough right now, now do ya? If it’s not a junkyard, you’re looking kinda pathetic.” Omega promised he wouldn’t come out here, but he’s making an exception.

Omega holds up papers and asks if Moxley has an idea of what they are. This is Omega’s “late Valentine’s Day gift” from Tony Khan. Omega says this is Omega’s title contract that has a rematch clause slipped inside. But no worries, Omega is in a giving mood because he’s such a charitable guy. So Moxley WILL have his automatic rematch for the world title, and it’ll even be at Revolution. But Omega still holds the right to name the stipulation. If the Biz Cliz keeps beating Moxley up, he’ll just keep coming back. If they beat him in a regular wrestling match, Moxley will be all jealous and still come back.

Moxley wants to talk about breaking necks and putting people in the ground?! Is that what Omega will have to do to Moxley!? In that case, how about this? Omega VS Moxley, in an EXPLODING BARBED WIRE DEATH MATCH?! Moxley wants to talk about having a trigger to pull, but Omega is the loaded gun! Omega gets too close to Moxley and Moxley headbutts him! Gallows & Anderson club Moxley down, Omega V-TRIGGERS! And then V-TRIGGERS again! Omega is furious!

“Look what you did to me! Show him the belt!!” Omega wants Moxley to look at the cut he just put on Omega’s head, and the shining AEW World Championship belt! Omega vows that Moxley will NEVER get the title back! And it’ll only get worse from here! Will Omega not only end Moxley’s career but his life at Revolution!?


My Thoughts:

This was a wild episode for AEW, and they’re really powering up the Revolution card. For one, with not having Cody & Velvet VS Shaq & Jade on the PPV, they’re more or less throwing a ladder match together. It will be a great match just based on the three we know in Cody, Pentagon and Scorpio, and I would think they’ll “determine” the other three through matches for something to put on the 2/25 card or even 3/3 card. But just as I felt with the constant Casino Battle Royal or Casino Ladder match, etc, it just seems like they aren’t sticking to the rankings system they’ve established. The TNT Champion should face the contenders outside of the #1, who of course faces the world champion. Now, if there were tied records, I could understand needing a match to name a challenger, but it doesn’t sound like there’s much of that in AEW, despite a lot more 50-50 booking than you’d think.

The segment with Sting “calling out” Team Taz didn’t go quite the way I expected. Starks and Hobbs being stuck outside of Florida aside, I did not think Sting was going to fail to stand tall tonight. Though, I suppose he couldn’t stay strong forever, because then the math would mean he and Darby lose at the PPV. But I did not think Sting’s first bump in a long time would be a POWERBOMB from Brian Cage! That looked rougher than normal, but I suppose Sting made it through that or news might have gotten out he was hurt. Maybe that was to test the waters, so to speak. If Sting can take that, then I suppose he is more than ready to take other bumps.

Hangman & Hardy had a really good tag match with TH2, and I actually like the swerve on Hangman’s swerve. Yes, Hangman tricked Hardy into having a match with a kayfabe crap ton of money on the line, but obviously Hardy would have privately realized something in the last week. He got the drop on Hangman, but the Dark Order reinforced Hangman, so I have a feeling the Dark Order will have a part to play at Revolution. Cassidy had a quick match with Luther, and I like that Chuck Taylor and Serpentico had parts to play, too. Cassidy VS Miro will be a lot of fun, whenever it happens, but I’m thinking Trent returns to help Cassidy win and get payback on Miro.

Deeb VS Riho was an incredible match, and all for the opening round. Riho will be taking on Thunder Rosa in the next round, and as great as it will be, I have a feeling Rosa wins because Britt Baker might make it to the US Bracket finals. Anna Jay VS Britt Baker and Nyla Rose VS Tay Conti being on a separate YouTube broadcast from AEW Dark is fine, but I feel like those matches would’ve helped give reason to watch Dark. I feel like Britt and Nyla are the given winners, and then we’d get a rare Heel VS Heel, which would be pretty cool for AEW to give us. FTR VS the Sydals was a great match, and we got a great payback attack from Jurassic Express. The Six Man Tag on 3/3 is going to be a lot of fun, and I have a feeling Tully takes the pin from Marko Stunt so that the others stay strong.

The AEW World Tag Team Championship match was an awesome match, and there was a lot of good story from the Inner Circle tonight. Jericho actually getting on MJF for egging Sammy on was good detail for how there is a lot of dysfunction still in the group. Jericho saying Sammy is dead to him was a bit of a surprise, but I suppose Jericho being selfish is just standard. The Bucks win so that we still get them VS Y2MJF, but the Inner Circle mostly standing tall after makes a lot of sense. I also like how it tied into the story with Omega & The Good Brothers. Callis couldn’t risk Omega going out there and getting hurt but the Good Brothers could. This can easily be used to bring us back to Bucks VS Gallows & Anderson, tag titles optional, maybe for Double or Nothing.

The Six Man Tag was really good, very chaotic and gritty, as it should be given the six men in it. Moxley’s team wins, of course, as Moxley needs to be strong going into both his match under NJPW and now going towards Revolution. Omega VS Moxley 3 being under such an insane stipulation is, well, insane, but they were able to deliver both in the “unsanctioned” match and the standard singles match, so going balls to the wall is going to just bring Revolution to a new level, provided no one actually dies. And honestly, that could go either way, partially dependent on Moxley VS Kenta, but I would think it’s still a 51-49 Omega win because there is still so much this Heel Omega can do while also champion.

My Score: 9.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY

CM Punk is here!

The Best of the World is back and the fans in Charleston, West Virginia are fired up to see him! Especially since he has THE AEW World Championship belt on his shoulder. No stage diving this time, though, he’s being a bit more careful this time. Punk goes to the ring and gets the mic as fans chant his name. “I’m trying to put my tough guy game face on before I came out here, and you guys just ruined it all by making me smile. I don’t got the prettiest smile. What I do have is the prettiest belt! Haven’t been here in some time, and I’ve got some business to attend to. Some things very, very important. Some things not so important.

“I want to get the not so important things outta the way. Where are we? Where are wee tonight? There’s somebody from around these parts that I would like to challenge to a rematch and I would like to do it right here, right now, for you beautiful people.” Fans cheer for that, they wanna see it, too! Punk sits down cross-legged and tells Hangman Adam Page, “You want that rematch, you got it right here, right now. Let’s go!” Fans are fired up for the “Cowboy Sh*t” that could go down, but where is he? Punk checks his mic, but no Hangman, and fans boo. Punk says that’s why this isn’t important. That isn’t Cowboy Sh*t, that’s Coward Sh*t!

“A little bit of advice that I suggest you take: The apology must as loud and as public as the disrespect!” And if anyone else has a problem with THE CHAMPION, Punk suggests they come on down! “Everyone wants to be the champ until it’s time to do champ sh*t!” Fans agree with that as they chant Punk’s name. “Ladies and gentlemen, I understand that Jon Moxley’s got a lot of fans. And he can be number one in your heart, but he’s not number one in this ring. I am THE AEW Champion!!” Punk knows what it takes to be the best, to talk a big game and say you’re the best, and to breathe that into existence.

He also knows what it is like to lose. Punk has lost big, but Moxley has always been number two, there has always been someone who has Mox’s number, and it’s Punk! Boo if you want, but let him know when he’s lying. “Jon Moxley is the third best guy in his own group, and that seems to be a reoccurring theme in his career.” Fans are stunned to hear that. Punk says, “That doesn’t make him a bad guy, but that doesn’t make him the best either.” Punk is the best, but yes, Mox has been carrying the torch when Punk broke his foot. Moxley talks about breaking bones and drinking blood, but between the two of them, the only one’s who has broken bones is Punk! It was his own, but still!

So again, tell Punk when he’s telling lies. Moxley has been INTERIM AEW Champion. Look that word up, it means “temporary.” And Punk is willing to test himself against Moxley, but is Moxley willing to test himself against his best friends? Let’s talk about those friends. Mox’s best friend is the third best Eddie that Punk’s ever faced. And the second best Kingston! These people aren’t number one at anything! Tell Punk when he’s telling a lie! Fans have to admit, he’s got a point. Punk says he’s missed the fans, and he’s missed competing in the ring. He’s been wanting to defend this title on a PPV, and that will be All Out, September 4th, Chicago, Illinois!

Punk is ready to test his belt against Moxley’s “number two with a bullet.” Punk is willing to test his foot! The funny thing is, heading into Chicago, Moxley isn’t even the first Jon/John that Punk beats in Chicago for a title! And he’s certainly not number one there, either. But say his name enough and here he comes! Jon Moxley is heading to the ring but Punk taunts Moxley over the time he takes to make it to the ring. Punk does “mat angels” as Moxley and his AEW World Championship belt go through the crowd. Moxley does make it to ringside, he does get a mic and he does get in the ring to stand there across from Punk.

Fans cheer for Moxley, and Moxley says, “Look out, ladies and gentlemen, CM Punk is dropping pipe bombs! Doing what he does best: writing checks with his mouth that his body can’t cash.” Moxley makes sure to point at Punk’s foot with that. And Moxley tells Punk he’s living in a fantasy land! In Punk’s mind, he’s the best wrestler in the world. But most times, Punk’s not even the best wrestler in catering. Punk thinks his mic in his hand is power. But this is the real world, and that’s just a microphone. And all the words Punk says into it don’t mean sh*t. That belt on Punk’s shoulder don’t mean sh*t. Punk says, “Who’s living in a fantasy world now?”

Moxley says, “To be fair, right now, this belt don’t mean sh*t. Not until I beat you!” Moxley says he IS the heart and soul of AEW, and every time they call him “Interim,” he thinks of Punk and that makes him sick! Punks says, “Good! You can be the ‘heart and soul’, I’ll bet he dollars and the cents!” Both men throw the belts down and inch a bit closer. Punk asks Mox if he’s done talking. Mox says we all know Punk only came to AEW because he ran out of money, so don’t give Mox that. “Being the best is about heart and soul and guts and fighting spirit, and we both know that you ran out of fighting spirit a long time ago.”

Now both men are face to face! Mox says if Punk wants to prove him wrong, then do something about it. But Mox doesn’t think Punk’s gonna do sh*t. Punk says they have a match at the PPV, which Punk will soundly defeat Moxley in. But if Punk touches Moxley now, Punk’s afraid Moxley will just start bleeding all over him. They get forehead to forehead, Moxley puts his hands back behind him to give Punk an open shot. Punk pushes Moxley away, but Moxley comes back with a peck on the cheek! AND A SLAP! The haymakers start flying and fans are fired up for it! Moxley and Punk scrap, security and officials rush in, and fans boo!

Moxley and Punk are separated but Moxley throws off his shirt! Punk eggs Moxley on, security is a wall between them, and fans boo more. Moxley tosses his belt out of the ring, then eggs Punk on! Punk tries to get after Moxley, and Moxley LEAPS onto the pile! The scrum continues but is quickly broken up. Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” and Moxley gets a chair! Moxley tosses it into the ring, and Punk uses it to take a seat! Punk eggs Mox on again, and Mox slides in! They make contact, but the security pulls them apart again! Fans boo some more, but Moxley finds an opening on the other side of the ring! The brawl is back on!

Wait, security just pulls them apart again. Fans boo as the ebb and flow just keeps going, but it seems we’ll all have to wait until Sunday, September 4th. What happens when Punk and Moxley go all out to determine an UNDISPUTED AEW World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs.

Tony Schiavone is with Hobbs and references what we saw last week concerning himself, Ricky Starks and The Factory. Schiavone thought Starks & Hobbs were friends, so why did Hobbs betray Starks? Hobbs says he doesn’t need friends! “Ricky Starks, you proved to the whole world, your true colors came out, you told the world that you were okay with losing. I’m not okay with losing, Ricky! For two years, you got to walk around here and parade around like you’re some God’s gift to this business. You got to hide behind Powerhouse Hobbs’ back, because you knew I would get the job done.”

Hobbs was hired for one thing: make sure Starks stayed champion. And Starks couldn’t do it! Now Ricky, Hobbs not only breaks backs, he also breaks necks. And as far as The Factory goes, Hobbs has something for them, too! Will the Powerhouse turn into a juggernaut and demolish everyone in his way?

 

Best 2 out of 3 Falls: Bryan Danielson VS Daniel Garcia!

The American Dragon fought hard against Red Death, but was screwed over by The Wizard! Sounds like Game of Thrones, but it’s pro-wrestling! Or as the Jericho Appreciation Society calls it, “Sports Entertainment.” However, Bryan dares Garcia to look inside himself and decide: Is he the Best Technical Sports Entertainer? Or is he the Best Technical Pro-Wrestler? With Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat as the special guest timekeeper, will the Dragonslayer slay the American Dragon? Or will he JOIN the American Dragon in the Blackpool Combat Club?

But first, Chris Jericho joins commentary! Fans sing Judas for him as he joins Excalibur, Taz, and Good ol’ JR, then Bryan makes his entrance. Bryan shakes hands with Steamboat, then Garcia makes his entrance, complete with a new Dragonslayer logo on his tron. The bell rings on the first fall and fans rally up. The two circle, feel out the grapple, and Bryan shoots in to get a leg. Bryan trips Garcia but Garcia fights back and trips Bryan. Garcia goes for a leg, but Bryan trips him back and rains down forearms! Garcia guards but Bryan moves around. Garcia slips out, back mounts, but Bryan stands up.

Garcia is a backpack but Bryan snapmares and rolls! It’s a rough landing but Garcia holds on, then he drags Bryan around. Bryan slips out, throws body shots from above, then has a KNEEBAR! Garcia moves around to stand up, and he has a HEEL HOOK! Bryan endures, stomps at Garcia’s face but Garcia gives those back! They stomp and kick each other back and forth, but Bryan puts on a HEEL HOOK of his own! Fans cheer this technical exchange and the two end up in the ropes! The ref counts, the two let each other go, but then Garcia BOOTS Bryan into a corner! Garcia eggs Bryan on while fans boo.

Bryan stands up, they reset, tie up, and Garcia puts Bryan in a corner. Fans rally for Bryan as Garcia smothers him, but the ref counts. Garcia lets off to SLAP Bryan! Bryan keeps cool as AEW goes picture in picture.

Garcia taunts Bryan but Bryan puts his dukes up. Bryan KICKS Garcia’s leg, then eggs Garcia on. Garcia returns but Bryan KICKS the leg again! They tie up, Bryan SLAPS Garcia now, and Garcia wobbles a bit. Garcia throws some testing jabs but Bryan shrugs those off. Bryan throws body shots, then SMACKS Garcia! Bryan suplexes high and hard, covers, TWO! Bryan drags Garcia around by a leg, turns him over and hooks up the legs. Bryan reaches for the arms, brings them back, and then up and up and ROMERO SPECIAL! Garcia endures being held overhead, then Bryan sets him down to fishhook the nose!

The ref reprimands but Bryan throws haymakers onto Garcia’s head, then ROCKS him with a forearm! Garcia falls forward, out of the leg hooks, and fans rally up. Bryan paces, watches Garcia get up, and then KICKS him in the chest! Garcia is right up to CHOP! Bryan smirks and Garcia eggs him on. Bryan CHOPS back, so Garcia CHOPS again. Bryan smirks, dusts that off, and fans rally up more. Bryan and Garcia talk some trash, Garcia SLAPS Bryan! Bryan squats and Garcia kicks at him. Garcia eggs Bryan on, Bryan snarls and stands back up. Bryan stares Garcia down as AEW returns to single picture, and the forearms fire off! Bryan KICKS away on Garcia in the corner!

Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” with every shot! Bryan goes corner to corner to DROPKICK! Bryan puts Garcia up top, climbs up after him, then SUPER STEINERS, but Garcia rolls it to a sunset flip! TWO!

The ref checks if Bryan is okay to continue, but Garcia says this is just the first fall! This isn’t over until he has his second! The ref starts a standing count, if Bryan can’t answer it, he’s lost! Garcia backs off to watch Bryan, and we’re past 5 of 10! Bryan crawls and stands at 8, so Garcia CLOBBERS him!

AEW returns and Garcia is stomping away on Bryan at the ropes! Fans boo Garcia and the ref counts, but Garcia stands on Bryan’s head! Garcia lets off and the ref checks Bryan. Bryan’s busted open from a DDT to bare concrete that happened during the break, but it isn’t too bad yet. Garcia drags Bryan from the ropes, kicks him more, and fans rally up. Bryan huffs and puffs as Garcia keeps kicking, and fans fire up! Bryan KICKS and KICKS and KICKS Garcia’s leg, but Garcia WRINGS the arm! Then omoplata, and the DRAGON SLEEPER! Bryan fights up, so Garcia INVERTED SUPLEXES him, and still has the DRAGON SLEEPER!

Bryan endures so Garcia rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans boo as the DRAGON SLEEPER is back on! But Bryan rolls forward to make it a cover, and he gets the fall!!

Bryan: 1; Garcia: 1

And now we’re all tied up! Garcia can’t believe it but the fans are thunderous! Now it’s sudden death! And Garcia hammers away on Bryan’s bloody forehead!

Fans are thunderous as now Garcia is also busted open! AEW goes picture in picture as the ref checks both men. They’re both okay to continue, even though Garcia’s a bit dazed.

Fans rally, Garcia CHOPS, but Bryan just sits back! Garcia CHOPS but Bryan just does an ab crunch! Garcia runs to PENALTY KICK! Bryan does another ab crunch! PENALTY KICK! Ab crunch! Garcia CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS but Bryan doesn’t fall over!

Garcia runs again, into a HUGE forearm from Bryan! Garcia goes down and fans fire up as Bryan stays send. Bryan flips Garcia off, that’s a JAS thing! Garcia sit sup, and Bryan KICKS him!

Bryan catches the arm to HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOW!! LEBELL LOCK!!! Garcia is OUT, the ref calls it for Bryan!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission, 2-1

Sports Entertainer or Pro-Wrestler, those are just labels, because this was a battle of two fighters! But in the end, Garcia falls and Bryan is the winner! And yet, Garcia’s fighting spirit keeps him reaching for Bryan. Bryan and the fans applaud for the heart the Dragonslayer has, but did what Bryan say last week get through to Garcia? Is Garcia going to be BCC? Bryan offers Garcia a hand but Garcia stands up on his own. Jericho leaves commentary to CLOBBER Bryan! Jericho rains down fists because he’s the sore loser here! But Garcia pushes Jericho away?! Fans fire up for that, but Jericho is confused and furious!

Jericho asks Garcia why he just did that. Is he thinking of changing? Garcia slaps the accusing finger away! Jericho points his other finger, because he wants Garcia to think long and hard about what he does next. Fans chant “You’re a Wrestler!” at Garcia, but will he listen to them? Or will he still follow the Jericho Appreciation Society?

 

Backstage interview with Private Party and Swerve In Our Glory.

Schiavone notes that this Friday on Rampage, it will be these two teams fighting over the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Swerve says “You’re welcome, by the way.” Marq Quen asks, “For what? Last week, you guys disrespected us, talking about how we’re not ranked. In case you haven’t noticed, we’re number five!” Isiah Kassidy makes sure Swerve knows it by holding up five fingers. Keith Lee steps forward and Private Party steps back. Schiavone steps in to remind them all of the No Physicality Agreement.

Swerve says Private Party’s been here how long and this is the closest they’ve gotten to the tag titles? “Winning ain’t nothing new to Swerve In Our Glory, Keith Lee and myself. You need to respect your elders, because you could learn a thing or two from us.” Keith adds, “And after you Swerve In Our Glory, then you can walk your happy asses back down the ladder.” Kassidy says Keith embarrassed him once. It won’t happen again. And on top of that, Private Party takes these titles back to New York. FACTS. BLAOW! See you Friday, baby. Kassidy & Quen are confident now, but will they be popping bottles or sharing ice packs after Rampage?

 

Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling VS ???

But wait! Moxley attacks the Premier Athlete on the stage! And then he CLOBBERS Smart Mark! Then Moxley storms to the ring and grabs the mic! “C M PUNK! I’ve been waiting too damn long for you to come back, I’m sick of waiting! You wanna unify these belts? I say let’s do it right now! Let’s get this sh*t over with!” Fans are ready for that, too! Moxley throws off his hoodie and waits, and here comes Punk! But officials and security try to stop him before he gets to ringside! Moxley rushes out to meet him at the ramp! Fans fire up as they brawl but again they are separated! Moxley returns to the ring, Punk pursues, and the security swarm in again!

Fans boo as Punk is dragged away from the ring. The BCC’s Claudio and Yuta even show up to hold Moxley back. As much as Moxley and Punk want this fight, everyone else in AEW is doing their best to delay this until All Out! Moxley storms off through the crowd and the BCC follow, will this grudge even wait for September?

 

Backstage interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Schiavone has Matthew Menard, Angelo Parker, and Chris Jericho himself, and brings up what we saw at the end of Bryan VS Garcia. Is there possibly some dissention in the ranks? Jericho says he is giving “Danny” a pass for tonight, that was hell of a match. Maybe after getting dropped on his head, he’s a little fuzzy and didn’t realize what he was doing putting his hands on Jericho. Maybe Garcia is wavering back and forth between Bryan and Jericho, but we need to know for sure. Next week, live on Dynamite, Jericho wants to talk with Garcia, face to face, in the ring, man to man! Whose side is Garcia on? Garcia better make the right choice.

But then Ricky Steamboat walks in! He tells Jericho that he’s watched Garcia. And that young kid is coming into his own. Jericho agrees, but then Steamboat says Garcia doesn’t need Jericho or Menard & Parker. Jericho is the same guy Steamboat knew 14, 15 years ago. The same hair, same get up and go. If anyone should mentor Garcia, Steamboat says Bryan is the better choice. Oh, really? Is that what you think, Steamboat? Typical goody-two-shoes Steamboat! Jericho hasn’t liked Steamboat for those same 15 years, so he better keeps his hands off Jericho and stay out of his business! Jericho storms off, and Parker tells Steamboat to stay out of their business!

Parker tells Steamboat to look at him when he’s talking! Stay out of- BOP! Steamboat’s still got a hard right! Will that teach the JAS not to anger The Dragon?

 

Gunn Club VS The Varsity Blonds!

Austin & Colten lost in the Dumpster Match but they did beat #Beardhausen. And yet, Daddy Ass is still not happy with how his sons are competing. Will they finally get Papa Gunn’s approval? Or will Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison expose them as the Ass Boys they are?

The teams sort out and Austin starts with the Ivy League MVP. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” and Griff adds on. Austin frowns as he circles with Griff, but then he SUCKER PUNCHES BPJ! Then he CLOBBERS Griff! Colten tags in, he CLOBBES Griff, then LARIATS him! Colten reels Griff up, and hits the COLT 45!! Cover, Gunn Club wins!!

Winners: Gunn Club, by pinfall

Quick on the draw and that gets Austin & Colten the win! Fans boo but Billy gets the mic. “Hold on, hold on. That right there is what I’ve been trying to tell you for the past couple weeks. That’s what you have to do. That’s what gets things done. Just to know that I am super proud of you. I have been hard on you, but I am proud of you.” And Billy says he has done a lot of really great things in his career. But the one thing that has been able to work is these two right here, that is a fact. The Gunns hug it out and fans boo. But then here comes Stokely Hathaway! Is he still trying to recruit the Gunn sons? WAIT, AUSTIN ATTACKS BILLY!

Billy staggers from the blindside, then Colt DECKS him!! The fans can’t believe the sons are turning on their father! They’re raining down fists and choking him out! But here comes THE ACCLAIMED! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens slide in to run the Ass Boys off! Bowens gets the mic, and fans fire up as he and Caster look to Billy. Bowens offers the scissors! “SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!!” And they do~! Will Billy and his boys take out Stokely and Billy’s sons?

 

AEW shares exclusive footage from last week.

Sonjay Dutt, Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh were fuming over Wardlow & FTR running them off! Sonjay thought Wardlow was a big man who could do it all! Wardlow could take out Sonjay, Lethal and Satnam all at once! But no, he can’t do nothing! He needed back up in Cash & Dax! So how ’bout this?! Trios match! Wardlow & FTR VS Lethal, Sonjay & Satnam, the biggest show of the year, ALL OUT! Sonjay swears to punch them in the face! Lethal says that they beat Wardlow down so bad, FTR noticed and felt bad for him, that’s why they came to help him. But now FTR’s made an enemy out of the three of these guys! Lethal doesn’t respect FTR!

Satnam dares Wardlow to try and powerbomb him. Will Lethal and company be the ones regretting challenging the faction formerly known as The Pinnacle to a fight?

 

Death Triangle speaks.

Pac is back from his All-Atlantic Championship defense tour, and he calls out the United Empire’s Aussie Open and “William Ospreay.” Or rather, “Billy.” And “Billy” apparently likes to parade around the industry like the very best Britain has ever produced. “Well I beg to differ. And me and you, bonnie lad, we have unfinished business. So let’s just say, I’m looking forward to next week. Very much so.” And with his brothers beside him, his familia, they’re an unstoppable unit built for this tournament! And if you haven’t heard just how dangerous they are, well you must’ve had your head in a box. “Gentlemen, we’ll see you in Cleveland. I hope you’re ready.” Will Penta, Fenix and the Bastard be the ones conquering the Empire in The Land?

 

Jungle Boy is here!

Charleston loves seeing Jungle Jack Perry and his pyro! JB goes to the ring and gets a mic while fans sing along with his theme song. Fans chant his name and JB says, “Thank you, thank you. A couple weeks ago, I came out here with a special T-shirt on. And it actually got me in a lot of trouble. I was asked, ‘Please, never wear that shirt on television again ever.'” Fans boo the censorship and JB agrees, but it was fair. “But boy, oh boy, did that shirt hit the nail on the head. Because for weeks now, I have tried to hit Christian Cage every chance I got. I tried to hit him with my  hands, I tried to hit him with a chair, I even tried to hit him with a car.”

And Christian has done absolutely nothing in return! Like, JB personally, he’d never just take that, but that’s him. So the way JB sees it, either he can continue to chase Christian as long as he has to until he gets his hands on Christian, which he will. Or… Christian can man up and face JB at ALL OUT!! Fans like the sound of that! Unless, of course, that shirt was right, and Christian Cage is just too big of a- Wait! Here comes Captain Charisma after all! Christian says hold on a second here! “So Jungle Boy, you’re challenging me to a match at All Out, huh? Well, my answer… is NO!” Fans boo because they knew he’d say that!

Christian says this isn’t for why they all think. We saw last week that Luchasaurus plowed through security, and then got himself suspended for headbutting an official in the head! This is getting out of hand! Christian wants JB to know that at the end of the day, Christian is proud of him. JB is confident now, speaking for himself, when a little over a year ago, it was like he was from right here in Charleston and couldn’t formulate a sentence. Fans boo again, but Christian says he had to go home after last week and had to do some reflecting. So this is what Christian came up with. Christian says he’s just going to get in the ring so he can talk to JB more directly.

Christian says obviously, frustrations boiled over when JB lost the tag titles. They both said some things and did some things that neither of them really meant. JB got a bit personal with Christian, but he understands. Now listen, hold on. Christian doesn’t wanna fight JB, he doesn’t wanna wrestle JB, he wants to fix this. He wants to fix this, Jack. He wants to go on another run like they had, and Christian promises to take JB to “The Promised Land.” JB doesn’t get what Christian is getting at, and fans chant, “BULL SH*T!” Christian says these people have never accomplished anything in their lives so they don’t know what Christian’s talking about.

Christian says he’s talking about championships for JB. At the end of the day, they’re family, and Christian loves JB. JB is like a son to him. So come back home. Christian offers a hug, but fans boo. JB thinks about it, asks if Christian means all that, and Christian nods. JB TACKLES Christian! And rains down fists! Then CLOBBERS him again! For more fists! Christian scrambles away but can’t get away! JB drags him in and CLOBBERS him again! Christian shoves JB away and crawls out of the ring but JB pursues! LOW BLOW!! Christian RAMS JB into railing! Captain Charisma shouts, “I hate your guts, you piece of crap!”

Christian drags JB up to SMACK off the apron, then brings him around to whip, but JB reverses! Christian hits steel steps hard! JB drags him up to dribble him off the steps! JB says Christian is not his family, or his friend! He stands up on the steps, stands on Christian’s arm, and then STMOPS it!! Fans fire up for JB showing his edge, and he tells Christian is a POS! He dribbles Christian against steps more, but referees and security rush out! They drag JB off Christian, will Christian even be able to wrestle JB at this point?

 

FTR & Wardlow speak.

Cash Wheeler says last week, we saw the return of “7 Star FTR” to AEW and they stood and fought side-by-side with the War Dog. Make no mistake, Wardlow doesn’t need help, he didn’t ask for it, but there was no way in hell FTR was going to let Wardlow get jumped by those three clowns. So if Lethal and company have a problem with that, come find them. If they want a Trios match, all they had to do is ask. Nobody messes with The Pinnacle. And Wardlow tells “big man” Satnam Singh, “I don’t care how big you are. Anybody and everybody gets powerbomb’d.”

Dax Harwood says that at one time, Jay Lethal was the best wrestler in the world. Some may still do that today. But Dax will say this much. In his mind, today on August 17th, “Dax the Ax” is the new best pro-wrestler on this planet, and he says that with as much humility as he can muster up! If Lethal has a problem with the three of them, then next week, Dax the Ax VS Jay Lethal, 1v1! What does Lethal say? #TopGuysOut!

 

Toni Storm VS KiLynn King!

The Lightning From Down Under is once again #1 contender, mostly in part because Kris Statlander goes down with injury. But will Storm be able to hold onto that position? Or will the King of Krazy snatch all that momentum away in her return to Dynamite?

The AEW Women’s World Champion, and Storm’s tag team partner, Thunder Rosa is watching this in the back, both to support a friend and also to keep an eye on her potential challenger. The bell rings, Storm and King circle, then tie up. Fans rally, the two go around, and King waistlocks to SLAM Storm! But Storm goes after a leg! King spins through, rolls Storm up, ONE! Storm Oklahoma Rolls, TWO! Storm headlocks but King endures the grind. King pries the hold, but Storm cranks it on! King headlocks back, hits a takeover, and she grinds Storm into the mat. Fans rally for Storm and she fights up to power out.

Storm runs, King ducks but Storm redirects herself! King dodges the basement dropkick, then drop toeholds Storm! King runs, but Storm avoids the basement dropkick to hit the basement dropkick! Fans fire up and Storm runs in at the corner, only for King to put on the apron! King elbows Storm, then hops up and up to FLYING KNEE Storm down! Fans fire up and King builds speed, but Storm avoids the wrecking ball dropkick! Storm then uses the apron for the TORNADO- NO! King blocks the DDT to RAM Storm into the apron! And then RAM her into railing! Fans fire up while Storm falls over, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Storm writhes while the ring count starts and King stomps Storm. King puts Storm in at 4 of 10, has her in a corner, and stomps her down. The ref counts, King drags Storm up to CHOP back down! King backs off but says she’ll do that one more time. King stands Storm up to CHOP her again! Storm staggers away to another corner and King storms up on her. King stands Storm up but Storm ducks the chop to CHOP ack! And again, and again, and again! Storm fires up, runs in, but King goes up and over to mule kick! And then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Cover, TWO! Storm is still in this but King keeps her cool.

King sits Storm up, hooks her up in a grounded abdominal stretch, and even adds a top wristlock. Storm endures and fans rally up, but King SLAPS Storm in the side! And again! And then rains down forearms! King drags Storm up, whips her to a corner, and run sin, but into a BOOT! Storm elbows King then goes up the corner! King hurries to ROCK Storm first! And CLUB her down onto the top rope! King hammers away but lets off as the ref counts! King goes corner to corner, to TOP SHELF KNEE! Storm is still stuck up top and King turns her around. King climbs up behind Storm to CLUB her down, but Storm throws elbows!

King CLUBS Storm then stands her up, for a SUPER BACK- CROSSBODY!! Storm turns it just in time but that landing is still a rough one! Both women are down and a standing count begins. Fans rally up, AEW returns to single picture, and Storm stands at 5 of 10. Storm throws counter punches on King, then forearm after forearm after forearm! King wobbles, Storm kicks low and FISHERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO! It was good but it wasn’t perfect. Storm drags King up but King throws her away to SOBAT! King runs, BOOTS Storm, and Storm goes to a corner. King runs in corner to corner but blocks a boot!

King hauls Storm up for a ELEVATED SPINEBUSTER! High stack cover, TWO!! Storm survives and King can’t believe it! King drags Storm up, CLUBS her, then pump handles and half nelsons. Storm slips out of the lift to GERMAN SUPLEX! King flounders to a corner and Storm goes to the opposite end. Fans fire up as Storm runs in, HIP ATTACK! The “Sweet Cheeks Music” is a hit, and Storm hits a TORNADO DDT! King flounders, Storm drags her up, SATELLITE DDT! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

The #1 contender stays the #1 contender, and Rosa applauds, though not that excitedly. Will Rosa wish someone else was her challenger? Or will she welcome the rematch with Storm?

 

AEW hears from The Trustbusters and Best Friends.

Ari Daivari says, “The more gold around your waist, the more green in your bank account.” But Chuck Taylor calls them out. The Trustbusters think they can win the Trios Tournament going against Best Friends? Trent says that trio is only together because Ari pays them. These guys are real-life best friends! But Sonny Kiss says no one cares about Orange Cassidy or his dorky friends. Trent says their unit is strong, while Trustbusters are weak AF. Ari says this Friday, the Trustbusters take one step closer to becoming the inaugural AEW World Trios Champions! Best Friends put their hands in, Trios titles on three. One, two, three, RAMPTRIO- Wait. Trios Tournament.

 

But there’s even more on Rampage!

On top of the Trios Tournament continuing, and on top of the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, we will see the televised return of Penelope Ford as she takes on the Fallen Goddess and #3 ranked contender, Athena! Plus, we will hear from ROH World Champion, Claudio Castagnoli on what is next for his title, and Hook will have his first defense of the FTW Championship against “The Reality,” Zack Clayton!

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

It seems that since Punk and Moxley are not waiting, neither is AEW! The Best in the World and the Blue Eyed Battler put it all on the line! We will have an UNDISPUTED AEW World Champion before All Out! Who will leave with gold in The Land to head for the Windy City?

 

AEW World Trios Championship Tournament, Opening Round: La Faccion Ingobernable VS The Young Bucks & ???

To make their trio complete, Andrade and Rush bring in Rush’s own brother, Dragon Lee! However, last we knew, Matt & Nick Jackson were at a loss for who would be their partner. Hangman Page turned them down so that he could support The Dark Order, and The Undisputed Elite cut ties with them completely, so who do the Bucks have left?

Brandon Cutler does follow the Bucks out there, but that’s always part of the entrance since he’s vlogging for them. Is the cold spray supplying cameraman their partner by default? He’s unzipping his tracksuit jacket and he tells the ring announcer to read this note. Justin Roberts unfolds the full page and says, “And now… He has held frankly an unbelievable amount of singles titles.” WAIT! Can it be?! “He is a two-time NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Champion, and two-time KOD Six Man Tag Team Champion.

“He had the longest reign of 346 days as AEW World Champion. He is a PWI Top 500 #1 ranked wrestler, Wrestling Observer Wrestler of the Year, and Sports Illustrated Wrestler of the Year. While he sometimes uses the airport in NOOORTH~ CAROLINA~, his only go-to candy bar is always the Charleston Chew. He weighed in at 224 pounds to wrestle in his first match tonight in 277 days. He is… KENNY! OOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAA~!” IT IS!! The Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, the OmegaMan, IS BACK!! Darn it, so is Don Callis… But we’ll take the good with the bad, can THE! ELITE! THE THE ELITE! Take over the entire tournament?

The trios sort out and fans are already thunderous! They chant “Welcome Back!” for Omega, but Nick starts against Dragon Lee. The two circle, Lee shakes Omega’s hand to show respect, but Matt chooses not to. Nick and Lee shake hands, fans rally up for Lee but Andrade is upset that he showed respect. Lee and Nick circle, tie up with knuckle locks, and then Lee knees low! Lee CLUBS Nick, runs then runs Nick over! Things speed up, Nick hurdles and Lee leaps, but Nick knuckle locks and CHOPS! Nick goes up and up to “LUCHA LIBRE~” FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up and even Omega applauds.

Nick tags Matt and The Bucks whip Lee corner to corner. Nick runs in to forearm smash, then he and Matt BULLDOG DROPKICK COMBO! Andrade gets in but he gets kicks. Matt gives Nick a boost to RANA Andrade away! Rush gets in but Matt dropkicks him down! Fans fire up and Matt drags Lee up. Matt wrenches Lee and wristlocks, and Omega reaches out! Fans fire up and Matt tags Omega in! Fans are thunderous already as Omega springboards to AX HANDLE! Omega’s first move in 10 months and everyone loves it! Omega wrenches Lee’s arm, wristlocks it, and fans chant for “KENNY! KENNY!”

Omega CHOPS Lee, brings him around, and CHOPS again! Omega bumps Lee off buckles, climbs up top and has the fans join in for the fists! The fans count all the way to 10, and Omega hops off! Fans fire up and Omega storms back in to wrench and fireman’s carry. Fans chant “You Still Got It’! as Omega marches around! “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” ROLLING SENTON, but he’s still rusty there. Tag to Nick, who then tags to Matt, and the Bucks bring Lee up to double whip. Matt drop toeholds Lee into a GUTBUSTER from Nick, and Omega runs to KOTARO KRUSHER GUTBUSTER COMBO! Then Matt runs in, ROLLING NECKBREAKER BACKBREAKER COMBO!

Fans fire up but Rush shouts to his brother, Lee. Matt drags Lee up, bumps him off buckles, then throws body shots and haymakers! Tag to Omega, he drags Lee up to ROCK him with haymakers. Omega CLUBS Lee, headlocks him, and put shim in the corner to CHOP him! And CHOP again! Omega brings Lee out but Lee fires forearm sand knees low! Tag to Andrade and Andrade pushes Omega. El Idolo wants to test himself against, as Don Callis says so often, “The God of Pro-Wrestling!” Omega likes that, and they circle. But then Jose distracts Omega on the apron! The ref tells Jose to get down, but Rush runs in to SUCKER PUNCH Omega!

Fans boo as LFI stomp away on Omega! Andrade eggs on the Bucks then tattles on them to the ref! The ref keeps the Bucks back while AEW goes picture in picture.

Andrade soaks up the heat, then kicks Omega to a neutral corner. Andrade whips Omega corner to corner hard, and Omega bounces off buckles! Andrade mockingly applauds, then he drags Omega up with a facelock. Tag to Rush and they mug Omega. Rush snapmares Omega, runs and basement dropkicks! Rush clamps on a chinlock but Omega gets the ROPEBREAK right away. Rush lets off, to stomp Omega down! Rush drags Omega to the LFI corner and Lee tags in. Lee goes up to AX HANDLE Omega! Andrade rushes to BLAST the Bucks while Lee wrenches, kicks, wrenches and kicks Omega again and again.

Lee wristlocks, KICKS and then grinds Omega down while the rest of his team whip the Bucks into railing! Lee has the arm in an almost Fujiwara Armbar but Omega endures. Lee then shifts to a CROSSFACE! Rush SUPERKICKS Cutler! Omega endures the crossface so Lee lets him go to stomp him down. Fans rally but Lee drags Omega into a motorcycle stretch. Omega endures, Rush ROCKS Matt by the ramp, and Lee lets go to drop an elbow! Rush holds up one of the Trios Championship belts, let’s hope he’s not jinxing his team. Lee drags Omega to the LFI corner and tags in Andrade. They mug Omega again then Andrade CHOKES Omega on the ropes!

The ref counts, Rush adds his boot to the mix, but the ref just reprimands them both! Andrade and Rush let off at 4, and Andrade soaks up the heat from the fans. Andrade drags Omega up but Omega ROCKS him with haymaker after haymaker! Andrade hits Omega back with forearms, then undoes Omega’s shoulder brace!

My Thoughts:

What an awesome episode for Dynamite, though they didn’t really go that strong into the Game of Thrones cross branding. But in some ways, that’s fine, because I’m pretty sure it would’ve been really cheesy. Punk opening with that promo was wild stuff. I won’t say that was a Heel turn, but he was definitely shooting hard with those references to his long storied WWE career. Moxley had a great response, they had a great confrontation and a great couple of brawls. Them having the Undisputed AEW World Championship match next week is wild, but also a big indicator there will be shenanigans at some point. They can’t not have the world title on All Out, so something’s gotta happen in Cleveland.

Bryan VS Garcia as the opening match was a great choice. It allowed the match to breathe, and it was all great. I almost thought the piledriver was legit rough, that was very close to flush. But Bryan winning makes a lot of sense given the story they’re building. I said it before that Garcia should leave the JAS to join BCC, and I’d love it if that happened at All Out. Jericho gave an ultimatum, so there’s gotta be a match that happens at the PPV for the fate of Garcia. And good promo from Private Party and Swerve In Our Glory. They’re going to have a very good match on Rampage, but I would think Swerve & Keith retain to get their first defense out of the way.

Good promo from Will Hobbs to call out Ricky Starks and The Factory, but it’d be really interesting if The Factory somehow becomes the reason Hobbs & Starks work out their differences and unite as a team again. Gunn Club squashing the Varsity Blonds was nuts, but it was even more nuts that they turned on Billy to join Stokely. The Acclaimed saving Billy and teaming up with him is pretty cool, and I wonder how these teams are going to escalate from that Dumpster Match. And good promos from Lethal’s group and the reunited Pinnacle, that is going to be a very good trios match.

Good promo from Best Friends and Trustbusters, especially the purposefully jumbled and messy team moment from Best Friends. I’m pretty sure Best Friends win on Rampage to move forward, as they made a good point about being a trio for longer, and built on friendship, not finances. Great promo from Death Triangle to call out The United Empire, and I got it scrambled in my head somehow that United Empire had to be here this week. They’re showing up next week, after the G1 Climax has resolved, and who knows if Ospreay will be coming in with momentum or not. But either way, Ospreay and Pac interacting is going to be awesome as each man has gold and we could get some great title feuds between them outside of the trios titles.

Very good promo segment from JB and Christian Cage, and Christian does have a point that JB has improved in terms of his confidence, and thereby improving his promo skills. Great little brawl, and even though JB smashed up Christian’s arm, I’m sure there will be something for this feud come All Out. We got a very good match from Storm and King, especially with this being King’s return to TV in almost half a year. Maybe King can join Athena against The Baddies while Kris Statlander is out, as King also has history with Red Velvet and the other Baddies. As for Storm, Storm VS Rosa is going to be a great match for All Out.

Then in the best thing of the night, it was everything with the Trios Tournament in the main event. Great to see Omega return to action, and I’m surprised he did as much as he did, especially that huge tope suicida spot at the railing. Though I suppose that was more on Lee than on Omega. Omega being the third man of course meant The Elite was going to win, but I had fully expected to see Death Triangle VS LFI in the next round. Rush turning on his own brother was a shocker, too, but I suppose Rush & Andrade are going to pile on the Heel heat for themselves. As for The Elite, I wonder if Cole & reDRagon cost them next round against whoever they face. That way, we get OG Elite VS Undisputed Era set up, and then I’m thinking Death Triangle VS Best Friends at All Out for the titles.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/16/22)

Powerhouse gets Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

It’s a baker’s dozen for Universal Studios!

AEW Dark continues in Universal Studios, and “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs looks to send a message to Ricky Starks through his opponent tonight!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Ari Daivari VS Fuego Del Sol; Daivari wins.
  • Willow Nightingale VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Willow wins.
  • Serpentico w/ Luther VS Brock Anderson w/ Arn Anderson; Brock wins.
  • Abadon VS Mafiosa; Abadon wins.
  • Angelico VS Baliyan Akki; Angelico wins.
  • Emi Sakura VS Renee Michelle; Sakura wins.
  • Josh Woods VS Cobra; Cobra wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Charlette Renegade w/ Robyn Renegade; Skye wins.
  • Bear Country VS Axel Rico & Victor Iniestra; Bear Country wins.
  • Kayla Rossi w/ Diamond Sheik VS Avery Breaux; Rossi wins.
  • Cezar Bononi w/ The Wingmen VS Marcus Kross; Bononi wins.
  • Rohit Raju VS Invictus Khash; Raju wins.
  • “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Blake Christian; Hobbs wins.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Abadon back in action, though I’m pretty sure she’s gotten even scarier since she’s been away… A lot of singles match-ups, a lot of easily called match-ups, but that’s par for the course on Dark. A bit surprised they didn’t just team up the Renegade Sisters against Willow & Skye, but maybe those matches are still connected. And while All Heart will lose to Powerhouse, you can beat Blake Christian will get to shine against the bigger Will Hobbs.
