Jon Moxley VS Ryan Nemeth!

The Maniac is firing up for some huge title matches in the next few weeks! The 26th of February, he defends his IWGP United States Championship against Kenta! The 7th of March, he goes after the title Kenny Omega cheated away from him! Will the Hollywood Hunk merely serve as a tune-up?

The bell rings and Nemeth leaps at Moxley! Moxley denies the satellite DDT, Nemeth comes back to headlock but Moxley powers out. They ram shoulders, Moxley doesn’t budge, and he SLAPS Nemeth off his feet! Fans are fired up already, and Moxley gives Nemeth crossface forearms from all sides! Nemeth flops and flounders away but Moxley stalks behind him. Moxley drags Nemeth up and reels him in, but Nemeth gets around to throat chop! Nemeth rams knees in over and over, then runs, but Moxley gets around to SNAP BACK SUPLEX! Fans fire up again as Moxley looms over Nemeth. Moxley STOMPS Nemeth’s hand, then stalks him as he scrambles away.

Moxley wraps Nemeth’s arm around ropes, pulls on it, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Moxley CHOPS Nemeth in a corner, whips him corner to corner and runs in, but into a boot! Nemeth throws forearms, whips Moxley, but Moxley reverses. Nemeth goes up and over and RAMS in, then runs, only for Moxley to follow and CLOBBER Nemeth in the corner! Moxley runs but Nemeth dropkicks him down! Nemeth drags Moxley up but Moxley gets around to full nelson, then GUILLOTINE! Nemeth endures, Moxley underhooks him, PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The fans are going wild for the Maniac, and Moxley is ready to run wild in both NJPW Strong and AEW Revolution! Moxley gets a chair, a mic, and takes a seat to say, “From the moment that I woke up in the morning without the AEW World Championship, I knew that I would do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.” Crawl through mud, barbed wire and landmines, he’ll get back to the top and take the hill! And it turns out, that’s exactly what he’ll have to do now.

“What comes to your mind, what images… when you hear the words “Exploding barbed wire deathmatch? Fire, blood, burns, torture, agony? Vintage Japanese wrestling magazines.” Are you disgusted? Revolted? Do your palms sweat and hands shake? Or do you get a sick thrill? Moxley shares what those make him feel, and why he’s made every mistake and bad choice you can think of throughout the course of his life: “I’m an addict. I’m addicted to this!” He wants to live close to the flames. He wants to feel all the blood, sweat and tears, from the bottom of his soul to lay his soul bare! That’s a feeling he can’t get enough of!!

Fans cheer as Moxley says, “The thought, the idea of the Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch, it’s too attractive. It pulls me in! I can’t resist it!” Even if it is a trap by Kenny Omega and his boys, that is not the first in a long line of sad guys who tried to take him out! Now, win, lose or draw, everyone in this building and watching at home, everyone who’s been with him this entire time, we will all know that when it’s all said and done, Moxley gave everything that he had! And if it is all over after Revolution, live on PPV, in the Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch, “that seems like a perfect way, a HELL of a way, to go out.” Fans are thunderous for this match already, but who will survive when Maniac and Cleaner ride the line one more time?

 

AEW shares a post-Dynamite interview from last week.

Lance Archer and Rey Fenix were both informed that they would have a chance at the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match at the Revolution PPV. Cody Rhodes, Scorpio Sky and Penta El Zero Miedo are in that, but these two have had good chemistry teaming up given their recent matches. Archer wants Alex to understand, iron sharpens iron. They were a killer tag team because of the Murderhawk Monster. Archer doesn’t need to qualify, he’ll kick Fenix’s ass. Fenix wants Alex to translate for him. Archer wants to know what he just said.

Well, Fenix told Alex that Archer is the worst tag partner he’s ever had. Wow, really? Archer gets mad, pushes Fenix, and a brawl is on! Fenix used speed to dodge but not for long! Things didn’t end there, but they will end in the main event! Who joins the American Nightmare, Closer and Cero Miedo at Revolution?

 

The Young Bucks and family arrive backstage.

Matt & Nick are accompanied by Mama & Papa Jackson and they see the boy son the back of the crew truck. They get a group picture in front of that, and the parents are so proud. Will they be even prouder of their boys when they take it to the Inner Circle at Revolution?

 

Brian Cage & Ricky Starks w/ Team Taz VS The Varsity Blondes!

The Machine & Absolute are absolutely ready for The Icon and Darby Allin, but Sting has made it known he wants payback tonight. Will Cage & Starks be able to focus on Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr. with Sting and the Relentless TNT Champion on the horizon?

Taz joins commentary to say his guys aren’t sweating the Blondes, Hook even has the car running with how quick they’ll handle this.

Darby grins as he sports his own take on Sting’s face paint! And then, in the stadium, the snow, the crow and… IT’S STIIIIIING! He’s dragging in the same body bag!

Cage wobbles, Sting kicks a leg out, and brings him back into the SCORPION DDT!! Will Sting and Darby do this and more come Revolution?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Miro, Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford.

Schiavone already feels uncomfortable as he introduces the Best Man and the Superbad newlyweds. Miro asks why it’s uncomfortable. Because of what happened at the wedding. Kip says the fact they’re even having this interview is a joke! It is a complete joke! Beach Break was supposed to be the best day of their lives, a memory they’d cherish forever. Kip asks Schiavone what happened. It was destroyed. And by who? Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy. Miro says the Superbad Honeymoon didn’t even happen because of Chuck and Orange! And trust Miro, he will get those guys, and he will destroy “that walking human Xanax!”

But caving in Chuck’s head will be different. Not because Chuck can match Miro in the ring. It’s because Miro actually likes Chuck. Chuck is a good guy, he was a good butler, polishing Miro’s car, organizing the kettle bells, folding the laundry, all of that. So Miro wants to tell Chuck that he is welcomed back. Come home, Chuck! Miro will forgive Chuck, though he won’t forget what happened. Wait, an AEW staffer gives Schiavone a note. Schiavone reads it, and it’s a message to Miro! “Will you wrestle us at Revolution? Yes, No, Maybe, circle one. Hugs and kisses, Chuck and Orange.”

This is what Miro is talking about! This is childish! Chuck is not a child, do not act like one! Associating with Cassidy is doing this to him! Chuck can come home and live a good, happy life! Miro chews up the note and spits at Schiavone! That’s not an answer to the note. Will Chuck and Cassidy make the challenge much more mature for Miro next time?

 

Brandon Cutler VS Jake Hager!

The Dungeon Master wants revenge on behalf of the Young Bucks for what happened after the tag title match last week! But will he only get himself hurt for defending his friends?

The bell rings, fans fire up as Hager and Cutler circle, and the two approach, Cutler dodges to fire off hands, but Hager just tosses Cutler to a corner! Cutler dodges again, fires off more hands, climbs up to rain them down, but Hager picks him up to bring him out! Cutler sunset flips but Hager drags him up to whip. Cutler ducks and dodges to wheelbarrow, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Hager looms over Cutler, deadlifts him and GERMAN SUPLEXES him again! Fans want that “One More Time!” but Hager just fires off body shots in the corner! Cutler sputters as the ref backs Hager off, but Hager comes back to whip corner to corner, and BOOT Cutler down on the rebound!

Hager soaks up the heat, runs corner to corner with Cutler in the drop zone, HAGER BOMB! Cutler flounders to a corner, Hager digs his knee into Cutler’s head, but the ref counts. Hager lets off, drags Cutler back up and whips him to ropes. Cutler kicks Hager back! Then slips out and sends Hager into buckles to KICK again! Hager runs in but Cutler dumps Hager out! Cutler builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit but Cutler keeps going, and he FLIES! Direct hit takes Hager down and fans are fired up! Cutler pushes Hager in, aims and springboards, into a SPINEBUSTER! Hager fires up, fans boo, but Hager circles like a shark. Hager runs and builds speed to CLOBBER Cutler!! Cover, Hager wins!

Winner: Jake Hager, by pinfall

The Big Hurt put the hurt on Cutler, and the Inner Circle runs in to add on! Santana, Ortiz and Wardlow stomp Cutler down at the ropes but the YOUNG BUCKS run out! SUPERKICKS for Santana and Ortiz! Hager and Wardlow bail out to avoid their own superkicks, and the Bucks shield Cutler. Matt gets a mic to call out Jericho and MJF! “We don’t have to wait until Revolution! How about you get your stupid asses down to this ring, right here, right now?!” Y2MJF have their entrance going, but where are they? They’re talking via titantron as they’re backstage!

Why would they waste time going to the ring when they’ll just beat the living hell out of the Bucks at Revolution to become tag team champions? But they saw someone wandering backstage, does this guy belong to them? PAPA BUCK got beat up!! MJF says Papa being proud of his boys brought a tear to MJF’s eye. Back row to the spotlight. Look at your son, Nick! Jericho RAMS Papa Buck into the picture of Nick! Oh he’s getting blood on it! But he can’t favor one son over the other, say “hi” to MATT! They RAM Matt into that picture, and Jericho mockingly says they should get a doctor! Better yet, the Bucks should hurry to pick up the trash. Then they mock the Buck pose and run off!

The Bucks arrive a second too late, and they go to their father’s side. The Inner Circle runs away in their Escalade, and Matt is beside himself with rage! Will the Bucks make Y2MJF pay for making this personal?

 

AEW returns with the Bucks getting their father into an ambulance.

The Good Brothers are also with them, and they ride with Nick while Matt stays with Mama Buck. Will Papa Buck be alright after what Y2MJF did to him?

 

AEW profiles “The Crossroads” super match on next week’s Dynamite!

Originally intended for Revolution, the amazing crossover of Shaquille O’Neil & Jade Cargill VS Cody & Brandi Rhodes had to change when Mr. & Mrs. American Nightmare found out they were expecting! Red Velvet stepped to the plate on behalf of Brandi, and now things will happen on March 3rd, live on TNT!

Excalibur says that Shaq has been a presence for over 25 years. Tony Schiavone says Shaq is very well known even outside of the NBA. Jade had perhaps crossed a line, but Shaq couldn’t help but push the envelope. One thing has led to another, and we’ve reached a boiling point! JR knows this will mean a lot to Velvet so young in her career. Velvet knows she has the experience edge and grit, passion and heart unlike Jade. She will give it everything she’s got! Schiavone wants us to remember that despite Cody’s other ventures, he puts wrestling first. Shaq is not worried about Cody’s legacy, and JR knows that a world class athlete like Shaq isn’t just going to go through the motions.

Shaq has warned Cody that the Shaq Attack is coming. Excalibur says Cody and Velvet can win by relying on their experience and just about every bit of their skill, because they’ll have to. They can’t afford Shaq or Jade to get that one good shot in. JR says Cody is of course going to be a better wrestler, but size and strength are always a factor. That X-factor can be enough for Jade and Shaq to win. Size and strength, experience and skill, what wins when these two teams meet at the Crossroads?

 

Hangman Page VS Isiah Kassidy w/ Matt Hardy!

The Cowboy got one over on Big Money Matt, but not without Matt coming up with a Plan B! Revolution will have a first-ever 1v1 between these two, with the winner receiving ALL of the loser’s Q1 earnings! Will one of Hardy’s Private Party proteges make Page pay for pulling a fast one? Or will Hangman be hanging tough going towards Revolution’s big money match?

Wait, Hardy has recruited The Hybrid2 to his cause? Are they going to cash in on that $3700 bounty just to soften up Hangman for Hardy? Hangman makes his entrance, and he rushes right at Hardy! Hardy gets away but Kassidy goes after Hangman and the bell rings! Kassidy throws hands, whips but Hangman dodges to ROCK Kassidy with haymakers! Hangman stomps Kassidy in a corner, stomps him even more, then lets off as the ref counts. The fans fire up, Hangman throws his vest aside and whips Kassidy to ropes. Kassidy dodges but leaps into Hangman’s arms for a FALL AWAY SLAM!

Hangman kips up, Kassidy bails out, but Hangman hurries after. Kassidy gets back in, Hangman slides in but Kassidy stomps him! Kassidy drags Hangman up, CHOPS him, but Hangman CHOPS him back! Kassidy stomps and whips, Hangman comes back to CLOBBER him! Fans rally for Hangman while Kassidy sits up in a daze. Hardy talks smack to Hangman but Hangman just goes over to Kassidy. Hangman drags Kassidy up, Kassidy throws body shots but Hangman CLUBS him down! Hangman whips Kassidy corner to corner, runs in but Kassidy boots him! Kassidy hops up, leaps, but into a BOOT! Kassidy flops out and Hardy grows frustrated, but Hangman PLANCHAS Kassidy hard!

Fans are thunderous as Hangman glares as Hardy and TH2. Hardy backs up as Hangman storms over, but Hangman refreshes the count. Hangman drags Kassidy up, shoves him into railing, then CLOBBERS him into the front row of wrestlers! The ring count climbs, Hardy tells Hangman he’s a bastard! Hangman refreshes the count again, drags Kassidy from the crowd and dumps him ringside. Hangman stands Kassidy up to CHOP him! Kassidy flounders to the timekeeper’s area but Hangman brings him around to powerbomb lift. Kassidy escapes, gets in the ring but Hangman pursues! TH2 distracts the ref, Hardy anchors Hangman, Kassidy HOTSHOTS Hangman! Hardy POSTS Hangman!!

But the Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds & John Silver appear! They point out something happened, the ref looks and suspects Hardy. Hardy denies involvement but the ref doesn’t trust him! She EJECTS Hardy!! Hardy pleads with Aubrey but she doesn’t care! Fans taunt Hardy with “DELETE! DELETE!” Kassidy puts Hangman in to get past that and stomp Hangman down! Hardy tells TH2 it’s on them now. Kassidy stomps Hangman, but Hangman kicks back! Kassidy stomps more while Silver & Reynolds cheer Hangman on. Kassidy snapmares Hangman, clamps onto the arm and hooks a leg but Hangman throws body shots.

AEW goes picture in picture as Kassidy cranks on the cording hold. Hangman endures, fights free and gets to a corner. Kassidy storms over to stomp Hangman, then he wraps Hangman’s arm around the ropes to YANK on it! Hangman clutches that arm, bails out of the ring, Kassidy pursues and gets in Hangman’s face. Hangman pushes Kassidy back but Kassidy throws body shots. Kassidy puts Hangman’s arm between railing and pulls on it! The ref reprimands, counts, and Kassidy lets go at 4. Kassidy glares at the ref but then talks trash to the Dark Order. Kassidy goes into the ring, Hangman gets in, and Kassidy talks smack on him, only for Hangman to throw heavy hands on him!

Hangman swings, Kassidy whips but Hangman reverses to send Kassidy out of the ring! Hangman gets the bad arm working while Kassidy is down on the outside. Hangman builds speed to DIVE into an uppercut! Kassidy grins as Hangman stirs in the ring. Kassidy gets the arm, pulls it between the ropes, then slingshots to DROP onto the arm! Cover, ONE, but Kassidy SLAMS Hangman’s arm back down! Cover, ONE, so Kassidy SLAMS the arm again! Cover, TWO!! Hangman is still in this and Kassidy grows annoyed.

Hangman runs in at Kassidy to corner clothesline him! Hangman snapmares Kassidy, runs and SLIDING- NO! Kassidy dodges, mule kicks and CHOPS! Kassidy reels Hangman in but Hangman suplexes to BRAIN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!!! Kassidy lives and “This is Awesome!” Hangman and Kassidy slowly stir.

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

The Dark Order are as excited as anyone that Hangman outguns Isiah Kassidy! Matt Hardy returns to say “You chose the Dark Order over Big Money Matt Hardy!

Hardy kicks Alan Angels out of the tunnel to TOSS him into the timekeeper’s table!! The Dark Order chase after Hardy while Hangman sees what just happened. Will Hardy make everyone pay for Hangman’s gambit?

 

AEW Media finds Kenny Omega… in a workshop?

Alex Marvez wants to ask Kenny what he’s doing here but Don Callis asks Marvez what he’s doing here. This is a private work space, and this is part of a very secret plan to construct what they’re calling, “The Moxley Extermination Chamber.” Omega says if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself. Not because Omega takes pride in his work, but because after they shred Moxley, Omega wants to know Moxley goes BOOM and BOOM and BOOM because of him! Omega will have all the credit who puts Moxley out of action for good! Back to work, boys! Marvez, get out!! Just what is the Cleaner creating specially for the Maniac?

The Dentist took care of a replacement opponent in Madi Wrenkowski while the Native Beast brutalized the Brazilian Blackbelt in Tay Conti. Now these two face off to determine the first US Bracket finalist, and the first overall Final Four entrant! Will the Doctor be in or out after facing this Vicious Vixen?

The bell rings and fans rally as Britt and Nyla circle. They tie up, Nyla shoves Britt down and fans fire up! Britt gets up as Rebel coaches her, and Britt circles with Nyla again.

Will it be the former NWA Women’s Champion, Thunder Rosa, or the inaugural AEW Women’s Champion and a rival of Nyla’s, the one and only Riho, that meets the beast at the Crossroads?

 

AEW profiles Jurassic Express VS FTR & Tully Blanchard!

Dax Harwood says that FTR came to AEW with a lot of fanfare because fans have wanted to see dream matches like FTR VS The Young Bucks, FTR VS Kenny Omega & Hangman Page. Oddly enough, the one match FTR wanted most was with Jurassic Express because of the huge differences between Jurassic Express and FTR. Jungle Boy says the first time around with FTR back in the summer, FTR had to cheat to win! JB knows things could’ve been very different that night, and this rivalry has mostly gotten personal because of FTR. FTR kidnapped Marko Stunt! The audacity!

Stunt says they want to cut the horns of the beast that is Luchasaurus, but they didn’t realize that only unleased him! And then they go and kidnap “the weak link” in Stunt? Aren’t #TopGuys supposed to do #TopGuysShit? They don’t realize what they’ve done! Cash Wheeler says last week, Jurassic Express was confident because it was 3v2. But Tully wasn’t there. Tully will be here on 3/3, and when it’s 3v3, not even all three of Jurassic Express can “hold a candle” to Tully! Tully was the engine of the Four Horsemen! Him with FTR is a dream team! Luchasaurus admits Tully might be one of the best all time, but how long has it been since Tully got in the ring? “Things have changed. Times have changed.”

Dax knows it’s been since 1989, over 30 years, that Tully has wrestled in a ring. But he’s coming out of retirement just for Jurassic Express! That’s something Jurassic Express needs to have on their conscience! Even before FTR met Tully, they knew he was one of the most influential wrestlers in their career. With him by their side, they’re even greater than they already were. #TopGuysOut. But will FTR have to be the ones to #FearTheRevenge of Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt?

 

AEW has more in store for The Crossroads edition of Dynamite!

Ahead of their AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Y2MJF will have a press conference to discuss that and what they did to Papa Buck earlier tonight! Paul Wight (The Big Show) is officially All Elite, and Tony Schiavone will interview him in preparation of them cohosting the newest AEW weekly program, Dark Elevation! Then, after what went down with Big Money Matt and the Dark Order, there will be a HUGE 10 Man Tag! Hardy leads Private Party and The Hybrid2 against Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Silver, Reynolds, and the man Hardy tossed through a table, Alan Angels! Will the Dark Order make Hardy pay before Hardy and Hangman settle up?

And to fill one of the spots in the Face of the Revolution Ladder match, the Dark Order’s Number 10, Preston Vance, goes 1v1 with The Acclaimed’s Max Caster! And of course, there will be THE AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Finals, only one woman can face Hikaru Shida at Revolution!

Speaking of Revolution, there will be a Casino Tag Team Royale! We already know there will be Bear Country, Private Party, Top Flight, The Butcher & The Blade, Santana & Ortiz, and BOTH the Dark Order’s Uno & Stu and Reynolds & Silver! More will be announced during The Crossroads, but only one team can win a chance at the world tag team championships! And after the albeit “childish” challenge was issued, Miro and Kip have accepted! Will they force “Charles” to return “home?” Or will they get a nice serving of Freshly Squeezed Orange Punch?

 

Face of the Revolution Ladder Match Qualifier: Rey Fenix VS Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake!

Cody Rhodes, Scorpio Sky and Fenix’s hermano, Pentagon, have already been named for this match. Another spot will be filled as the Firebird and the Murderhawk battle! Who joins an already star studded match and fight for a TNT Championship opportunity?

The bell rings and Fenix circles with Archer. They get in each other’s face, or rather Fenix in Archer’s shoulder, and Archer shoves him away. Fenix CHOPS Archer, Archer smiles, but Fenix KICKS and KICKS then dodges to mule kick. Archer blocks that last one to flip Fenix, but Fenix lands on his feet! Fenix runs but into a knee! Archer whips, Fenix goes Spiderman to heel kick but Archer deflects that to ROCK Fenix with a right! Archer whips, Fenix goes Spiderman again but the heel kick is still blocks! Fenix blocks the haymaker this time, CHOPS, blocks another haymaker and CHOPS, but Archer choke grips! Archer shoves Fenix to a corner, Fenix goes up and boots back!

Fenix leaps and RANAS Archer to ropes! Archer is up, Fenix handsprings but into a CLUBBING forearm! Fans boo Archer as he shakes out the stars spinning around his head. Archer drags Fenix up, bumps him off buckles hard, and then follows Fenix to the apron! Archer pulls Fenix back against ropes, lets off as the ref counts, and fans start to duel. Archer drags Fenix up, whips him to ropes, but Fenix holds the ropes to stop. Archer runs in but Fenix dumps him out! Fenix builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit, and Fenix tumbles off Archer into the front row! Fenix’s peers help him stay up, and he goes back to ringside after Archer.

Jake the Snake gives Fenix space at the steps as Fenix climbs up. Archer goes to the apron, Fenix climbs up, but now the Snake is lurking! Fenix stumbles and falls to the ramp! But Fenix gets up as Snake talks with Archer, and FLIES over Snake to take Archer down!! Fans are going nuts as Fenix gets up! Fenix glares at Snake, the ref has them stay apart, and Fenix goes to Archer. Fenix puts Archer against railing and CHOPS him! Archer goes around the way, Fenix CHOPS him again, but Archer CHOPS Fenix off his feet! Archer CHOPS Fenix over the railing! Fans are going nuts again as Archer paces and AEW goes picture in picture.

Archer drags Fenix up and over the railing, dumps him to ringside, but Fenix throws body shots. Archer ROCKS Fenix, puts him against the post, but Fenix moves and Archer POSTS himself! Fenix hurries up and DROPKICKS Archer down! Fenix pushes Archer into the ring, goes to the corner and aims, to springboard SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Fenix covers again, TWO! Fenix CLOBBERS Archer, covers, ONE!! Fenix ends up tumbling out of the ring from the strength of that kick-out! Fenix gets back in but Archer kicks him low and ROCKS him again! Archer whips Fenix into a corner hard and Fenix flops to the mat.

Archer CLUBS and KICKS Fenix around, stomps him around, then snarls as he covers. TWO, and Archer is annoyed. Archer rains down rights, clubbing crossface forearms, and then covers again, TWO! Archer is even more annoyed with Fenix, glares at the ref, too, then goes back to Fenix at the ropes. Archer smothers Fenix against ropes, the ref counts, but Archer twists Fenix’s neck more. Fenix flops to the apron, Archer drags him back in, and AEW returns to single picture. Fenix fights back with body shots but Archer eggs him on. Fenix CHOPS Archer, CHOPS again, but Archer kicks and ROCKS him again!

Archer paces as fans boo, and Archer drags Fenix from ropes. Archer gives more clubbing forearms, drags Fenix up, but Fenix keeps fighting! Fenix CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Archer CHOPS Fenix! Choke grip but Fenix fights out! Fenix elbows, goes to the apron, goes up but gets caught! Fenix fights the choke slam off so Archer just CLOBBERS him off the apron!! Archer goes out to drag Fenix back up, and whips him hard into the railing! Snake smirks as fans are freaking out! Archer drags Fenix up to whip him even harder into the other railing! The ref wants Archer to get this in the ring, Archer drags Fenix up to ROCK him against more railing! And again! And again!

Archer gets space, runs back in, and CANNONBALLS Fenix into the railing! Archer is having fun as he leaves Fenix behind and fans chant “This is Awesome!” Archer puts Fenix back in, looms over Fenix, and hauls him up for a suplex TOSS!

Fans chant for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” as Fenix and Archer flounder up. Fenix CHOPS, wrenches, and fireman’s carries?! Archer slips off to waistlock and GERMAN SUPLEX! Fenix is down but stirring as fans rally up. Archer slowly stands, storms over to Fenix, and he drags Fenix back up by one arm. Archer CLUBS Fenix, knuckle locks and goes up the corner. Archer walks the tightrope, and gives us the MOONSAULT ATTACK! Cover, TWO!! Fenix still lives and Archer sighs. Fans rally and duel as Fenix stirs and gets to a corner. Archer is after him already, puts him through the ropes and bends him back again to CLUB him down! And CHOPS him on the back!

Archer brings Fenix around but Fenix fires off more CHOPS! Fenix CHOPS Archer to a corner, whips him corner to corner, but Archer reverses hard!

Archer drags Fenix to a corner, hauls him up, CHOPS and inverted crucifix lifts, for the BLACKOUT BOMB!!! Cover, Archer wins!!!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall (advances to the Revolution Ladder Match)

What a battle just to get into the PPV ladder match! How much harder will Archer fight to make sure #EverybodyDies and he gets his shot at Darby Allin? But Archer still shows respect to Fenix by sitting him up and offering a fist bump. Fenix gives that fist bump back, will these two circle back around for another instant classic?


My Thoughts:

An awesome episode with so much action that this episode went by really fast! Moxley opens with a really good win over Nemeth and a great promo to set up his side of the AEW World Championship match at Revolution. I like that we got a quick segment from Omega later to suggest he’s going to bring out another insane looking structure like that barbed wire bed from Full Gear 2019. The Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch is definitely going to live up to that “Unsanctioned” match from Full Gear 2019, and might possibly outdo it somehow. It can go either way, but it really feels like Omega will retain so that he can keep this story of himself and everyone else in the Elite/Biz Cliz going.

Cage & Starks of course beat the Varsity Blondes but it was a pretty good match. The response from Sting and Darby was great, especially Darby ziplining in. This is like Batman and Robin or something taking on their Rogue’s Gallery. The Street Fight will be really good, but I oddly hope the rest of Team Taz stays out of it so that we can also get Darby VS Hobbs at some point, to revisit how Hobbs betrayed him to join up with Taz. Of course, Darby will also have a challenger after the Face of the Revolution Ladder match, but Darby VS Hobbs can always happen before or after that challenge. The challenge is for the TNT title, but it doesn’t have to be against Darby.

Cutler VS Hager was good, but it mostly worked as a vehicle to what The Inner Circle did to Mr. Jackson. That was some of the blatantly fake blood, but obviously Mr. Jackson wasn’t really going to bleed. They still could’ve done a bit more than paint him, though. The Bucks are definitely going to crash the “press conference” next week and that math will tell us a bit on Revolution. It would be interesting if Santana & Ortiz won the Casino Tag Team Battle Royale, then Y2MJF end up champs, giving us a new wrinkle in the Inner Circle dysfunction.

Hangman VS Kassidy was great, as was Hardy throwing Angels off the stage. Dark Order VS Team Hardy is going to be a really good go-home, and I bet Hangman helps out at some point. The interview segment with Miro & The Superbads was alright, but Chuck challenging Miro through a letter like they’re in grade school was funny. Their tag match at Revolution will be good, and I bet Trent returns through that to help his best friends beat Miro. We got a great hype package for Shaq & Jade VS Cody & Velvet, and another great one for Jurassic Express VS FearTullyReturning, and there’s a lot of other great stuff hyped up for the go-home.

Nyla VS Britt was a great match, but I am a bit surprised Britt didn’t win with cheating. The US Finals might flip the switch from Rosa VS Britt to Nyla VS Riho, another rivalry that was pretty big for the AEW Women’s Division. Maybe AEW will let Rosa’s quest for the AEW Women’s Title, NWA Women’s Title and revenge on Britt be what carries us through Spring into Summer so that by All Out 2021, she’ll have at least checked of two of those things. I’m just not sure the timing of the last few matches in the tournament. I know we get Riho VS Rosa as part of the Sunday special, but is there also going to be another Monday show on YouTube? Or is something planned for a pre-Revolution Dark? Maybe a double header on the go-home? US Finals happens, then the winner immediately has to face the Japan Finals winner?

Archer VS Fenix was awesome! Truly a match of the week contender, maybe even month. With Penta already in the ladder match, it does make some sense for Archer to win and move on. Fenix and Penta are meant to stay on the same page now that Death Triangle is possible, so pitting them against each other at Revolution would go against that. Archer also differs from the other participants so far. Cody is more technical and we have the high-flyer risk-takers in Penta and Scorpio, so Archer as a powerhouse is what changes things up. Number 10 VS Max Caster is an interesting match up that could go either way to add another interesting possibility into the match. I just hope Cody doesn’t end up winning, he doesn’t need to be dominating the TNT Division if he’s also going to be a daddy soon enough.

My Score: 9.5/10

AEW Elevation Coverage

It’s a Superbad return!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling VS Travis Titan & Arik Cannon; Nese & Woods win.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS T.U.G Cooper, Drew System, Rylie Jackson & Adam Grace; The Dark Order wins.
  • Serena Deeb VS Sierra; Deeb wins.

  • Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida & ThunderStorm VS Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero; Shida & ThunderStorm win.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Penelope Ford is back in action. I wonder if Kip Sabian will make his in-ring return soon. Unless he wants to keep stalking Pac a little longer as the box man… Private Party is going to get a win as the warm-up for their AEW World Tag Team Championship match this Wednesday, and pretty much the entirety of The Dark Order is in action in that 8 Man Tag. Konosuke VS Bononi is going to be really good. Bononi is certainly the biggest opponent physically speaking for Konosuke to take on, so we’ll get to see how Konosuke handles that situation.

PLAY BY PLAY

Bryan Danielson is here!

The American Dragon is back and Minneapolis is fired up to see him! Bryan goes to the ring and Tony Schiavone is there waiting for him to say we can all tell Bryan is here with purpose. So first, there is speculation that after the loss to Daniel Garcia, Bryan is not 100%. Second, Garcia has said he is the “Dragonslayer,” and he will not only defeat Bryan but end his career. Bryan takes the mic to say, “To be honest, I’ve been wrestling almost 23 years, I don’t know if I will ever be 100%. But I don’t need to be 100%, I need to live 100%! And there is nothing that makes me feel more alive than being in this ring!”

Fans cheer that and Bryan continues to say, “I will never willfully stop wrestling. Daniel Garcia said if I get in the ring with him, he’ll slay the dragon, end my career. Do you know what? Someone is gonna have to damn end my career because I am not going to end this ring on my own. But my career will not end this Wednesday!” But then Garcia is on stage and telling Bryan to “hold up, hold up, hold up. Bryan, it’s no secret that Bryan Danielson is my hero! You’re my hero, Bryan! But it sounds like to me that my hero is prepared to lose. It sounds like to me that my hero is coming up with excuses.” Fans boo that as Garcia gets in the ring.

Garcia says that he isn’t sure how many times he can put up with this! Bryan retires, then comes back, then retires again, then comes back again. Bryan can’t keep putting Garcia through this, it hurts Garcia. Garcia says when Bryan hurts Garcia, Garcia wants to hurt Bryan back. And when you step in the ring with Garcia again, Garcia will hurt him so bad, that he ends Bryan’s career for good! And then he won’t just be the Dragonslayer, he’ll be the Greatest Technical Sports Entertainer on the Planet.

Fans boo and Bryan responds with, “I’m okay with people saying they’re gonna end my career. Ever since I came to AEW, I’ve been talking about violence. I love violence, and violence begets violence. But do you know what really pisses me off? It’s that sports entertainment BS!” Fans cheer for that! Bryan knows what Chris Jericho’s been shoving down Garcia’s throat, and it IS that sports entertainment crap! Do you all know that this kid, Daniel Garcia, was one of the first names Bryan mentioned when talking about starting the Blackpool Combat Club? And why? Because Bryan saw Garcia at 21 years old go 60 MINUTES in front of 250 people, showing them the best wrestling Bryan’s seen in a young talent in YEARS!

So let Bryan ask Garcia, and he wants Garcia to think about it all the way to Wednesday, when Bryan’s stomping Garcia’s face in! “Do you wanna be the Best Technical Sports Entertainer on the Planet? Or, or… Look at me when I talk to you!” Bryan even grabs Garcia’s face to keep him looking forward! “If I was your hero, do you want to be the Best Technical Wrestler in the world? And I’ll leave that up to you.” Bryan drops the mic and leaves Garcia to mull that over. What path will Garcia choose while his career is still young?

 

AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championships: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo VS Dante Martin & Skye Blue!

Another young protégé of Chris Jericho, and his blushing new bride, are back in action! And for the first time in AEW, they defend the belts that signify their bond! But will the Spanish God and his Brazilian Goddess celebrate a title win on top of their marriage? Or will Angel Dorado & Cielo Azul prove that for once, love doesn’t conquer all?

The introductions are made, the matching red ‘n’ blue belts are raised, and we see if the hometown hero of Minneapolis and the girl next door can win the big one!

The teams sort out, and Skye insists that it’s ladies first. Tay and Sammy kiss for luck, but Dante tells Sammy to leave that stuff backstage. Sammy shoves Dante down! So Skye fires off on Tay! And Dante TACKLES Sammy! The fans fire up as the scraps continue, and the ladies spill out of the ring! Dante TACKLES Sammy again, so it seems the gentlemen are starting instead! Tay RAMS Skye into the railing, Sammy shoves Dante again but Dante trips Sammy up! Dante rains down more forearms while fans fire up for the 612! Sammy gets up and KNEES Dante, then soaks up the heat. Sammy CHOPS Dante against ropes, then whips him to ropes.

Dante reverses, knees and CHOPS Sammy in return, then ROCKS and CHOPS him again. Dante whips Sammy to ropes, Tay catches Sammy to stop him then tags in. Skye is to come in automatically, but she tags to climb up and CROSSBODY! Skye then gets around but Tay throws her off with the judo hip toss. Skye shoves Tay so Tay SLAPS Skye! Skye smirks and SLAPS back! And then fires off fast hands! Fans fire up but Tay trips Skye! Tay steps through, rolls and uses the leg lock to THROW Skye! Tay steps over into a modified STF, and she chinbars Skye into an almost Bow ‘n’ Arrow style stretch! Skye endures, scoots but Tay makes it a cover, ONE!

Skye has a cover, ONE! Skye ROCKS Tay, whips her to ropes, and fans rally. Tay holds ropes but Skye SHINING WIZARDS! And SHINING WIZARDS again! Tay shoves Skye, Skye dodges and mule kicks a leg! Tay blocks the superkick but now the DRAGON WHIP! Fans fire up and Skye runs, but Sammy swipes at her! The ref reprimands, but Tay BOOTS Skye down! Fans boo SamTay while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Tay stomps Skye, covers her, TWO! Tay is frustrated and she talks trash on Dante. Tay stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Tay lets off at 4, and then she drags Skye up to whip her into a DROP SAYANAGI! And then another! And another, but Skye blocks to a cradle! TWO, and Tay ROCKS Skye! Tay kicks Skye around, drags her up, and she kisses Sammy. That’s not a tag so Tay CLUBS away on Skye. Tay cravats to throw knee after knee into Skye, and then whips her into a neutral corner. Tay runs in and BOOTS Skye! Tay runs in again but Skye dodges the boot to roll Tay up, with a bridge, TWO!!

Rampage returns to single picture and Tay grabs a leg, but Skye ENZIGURIS Tay down! Fans fire up as Skye crawls, hot tag to Dante! That brings Sammy in, but Dante fakes him out into a TACKLE! Dante rains down fists, Sammy shoves him away but Dante rallies with forearm smashes! Dante then ducks a haymaker to DROPKICK Sammy out! Minneapolis fires up and Dante takes aim. Tay runs in but Dante goes up and over her! Dante DIVES and takes out Sammy! Fans fire up as Dante puts Sammy in fast. Dante slides in but Tay anchors a foot! The ref reprimands, Dante drags Tay into the ring with that foot, and Sammy grabs Dante!

Sammy clinches but Dante breaks free. Dante kicks, Sammy blocks and flips Dante, over Tay! Dante then uses Tay as a step to hit a DESTROYER on Sammy!! Sammy flops down, Dante covers, TWO!! Sammy survives and Dante can’t believe it! “This is Awesome!” and Dante drags Sammy up. Sammy KNEES Dante back, torture racks, but Dante slips off! Skye tags in, Dante gets Sammy in a half nelson! Sammy elbows free, Tay tilt-o-whirl DDTs Dante! But Skye FLYING RANAS Sammy! The ladies cleared the ring, Tay SUPERKICKS and hooks Skye, TAY K O!! Cover, SamTay win!

Winners: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo, by pinfall (still AAA World Mixed Tag Team Champions)

There was a lot of fire in the hearts of Dante & Skye, but not enough to burn down Sammy & Tay. Will Mr. & Mrs. Champion continue to reign on everyone’s parade?

 

The Lucha Brothers speak.

Rey Fenix says, “After a long road, the Lucha Brothers are coming back for gold.” Penta, with Alex Abrahantes translating, tells Andrade and the world, “This hasn’t finished. But next week, the All-Atlantic Champion returns, and Death Triangle will be reunited and will fight for the Trios Championships.” The Bastard, Pac, is returning from his European tour, will he, Penta & Fenix be ready for The United Empire’s Aussie Open and Will Ospreay in the opening round?

 

Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss!

Ari Daivari recruited this brutal blue chipper to the group, knowing this would be a very wise investment. Will Parker pay off right away? Or will the Concrete Rose prove not to judge a book by its cover?

The bell rings and Parker CLOBBERS Kiss! Kiss flounders, Parker drags him up with a facelock and CLUBS away on the corner! Parker lets off as the ref counts and runs in, but Kiss dodges the splash! Kiss ROCKS Parker, then runs to handspring and SLAP! And uppercut! But Parker grabs Kiss by the neck, for a CHOKE SLAM! Parker snarls and drags Kiss up to a back suplex SLAM!! Cover, Parker wins!

Winner: Parker Boudreaux, by pinfall

Slim J is pumped for Parker but Parker just looks hungry for more. Will the Trustbusters eat well when the Trios Championship begins?

 

La Faccion Ingobernable meets with the former Andrade Family Office.

Andrade formally introduces Rush to Butcher, Blade and Private Party. Rush doesn’t like Private Party. But Andrade says it’s fine! The LFI will win those Trios Championships, unlike Private Party against Keith Lee. Jose even adds that was embarrassing. Isiah Kassidy tells Jose to shut up, and he tells El Idolo that people like him have been sleeping on Private Party for a very long time. But that’s fine, because it all changes. Private Party will wake Andrade up. Well good, maybe Private Party can get this group those world tag titles. Upper management leaves, will Kassidy & Quen redeem themselves in the eyes of the ungovernables?

 

Beardhausen VS Gunn Club!

Erick Redbeard returns to AEW alongside the Very Nice, Very Evil Danhausen to teach these Ass Boys something! Not quite sure what, but will Danhausen & Erick put a curse on the Gunn Club? Or can Austin & Colten redeem themselves after losing in the Dumpster Match?

The teams sort out and Erick starts against Colten. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS! ASS~ BOYS!” Colten shrugs that off to tie up with Erick, and Erick shoves Colten down! Fans fire up but Austin tags in. Austin steps to Erick now, but then decides not. Psych! Austin rushes in, but Erick runs him over! The boys bail out and regroup and Billy asks what the hecc! Billy tells Austin to get in there, but then Danhausen tags in! Fans fire up as Danhausen flexes on Austin. He powers up and… CURSES Austin! But Austin DECKS Danhausen! So no hex? Austin bumps Danhausen off buckles as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Austin tags Colten, Colten bumps Danhausen off more buckles then stomps away. Colten whips corner to corner, runs in, but Danhausen boots him away! Danhausen goes up, reels Colten in, and puts him in the ROPE BUTTERFLY! Austin protests but that only means Colten suffers longer! The ref counts, Danhausen lets go at 4, and then he slingshots up to the top! But while the ref is checking on Colten, Austin sucker punches Danhausen! Colten then DROPKICKS Danhausen down! Colten soaks up the heat, drags Danhausen up and brings him around to bump off buckles. Colten stomps Danhausen, the ref counts, and he lets off at 4.

Colten taunts Erick but then backs off as Erick steps in. Colten bumps Danhausen off buckles, tags Austin in, but Danhausen fights back! He fires off haymakers on Austin, but Austin kicks low! Austin ROCKS Danhausen, taunts the fans, and Billy taunts Danhausen with an Orange Cassidy thumbs up. Austin drags Danhausen up to stomp away in the corner, then lets off as the ref counts. The ref reprimands Austin but misses Colten CHOKING Danhausen! Colten CLUBS Danhausen then tells fans they saw nothing! Austin stomps Danhausen, drags him up, and brings him around as Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Austin has Danhausen in a headlock. Fans rally up and Danhausen slips away! Austin rushes after him but Danhausen slips under! And then under again, hot tag to Erick! Redbeard rallies on the Gunn Clubs, BOOT for Austin, DROPKICK for Colten! Then a SPLASH and TOSS for Colten, then he runs at Austin, Austin BOOTS Erick, but Erick TOSSES Austin out onto Colten! Erick goes out now and runs in to CROSSBODY both Ass Boys! Fans fire up as Erick puts Austin in and fans rally up for the slingshot senton! Shoutout to Brodie Lee! Then a HEEL KICK! Cover, Colten breaks it!

Fans boo as Colten hammers away on Erick! Colten rags Erick up, Austin joins in, but Erick fights the double suplex to DOUBLE SUPLEX Gunn Club! Fans are thunderous, and Danhausen wants back in! Tag and Danhausen is in! Erick drags Austin up for him, Danhausen hooks Austin up, and Erick runs! But Colten distracts the ref and Billy dumps Erick out! Fans boo and Austin turns things around into a FAMOUSER! Cover, Gunn Club wins!!

Winners: Gunn Club, by pinfall

Big assist from Daddy Ass, and yet Billy gets the mic to say, “Oh my God, are you kidding me? Really, that’s what you’re giving us? No wonder they call you Ass Boys, and no wonder I miss The Acclaimed.” Ouch… Billy means that the guys need to toughen up a bit. A lot of bit! They sure ain’t doing what he’s taught them, that’s a fact! But that’s okay, on Dynamite, they’ve got another match to prove themselves with. But who is it? Billy doesn’t say, will Austin & Colten just have to tough it out? Wait, Stokely Hathaway is in the crowd, offering his business card again. Austin & Colten don’t accept, and they follow after Billy.

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, Swerve in Our Glory. Earlier, Andrade made it clear that he wants Private Party to go after the titles. Now, Keith Lee has history with them, but what makes the tag title match different? Keith chuckles and says, “Listen. I got here, Mr. Kassidy was a challenger, and I dismantled him. His friend, Quen, jumps in, I dismantle him. I don’t know if this makes sense, but if you didn’t have a chance against me, what makes you think you have a chance against us? Please, do the math.”

Swerve admits math wasn’t his best subject, when it came to counting money! But um, he added up Private Party’s losses, subtracted their wins, and carried the one, and the still don’t add up to a top five ranking team! So they will allow Private Party to be grace the champs with their presence, since no ranked team wants to, and they can #SwerveInOurGlory. Whose house? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Will Quen & Kassidy take advantage of this gracious opportunity? Or will they be of further disappointment to El Idolo.

 

HOOK is here!

Minneapolis fires up for the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil of a NEW FTW Champion! Hook goes to the ring, Schiavone is there, and Schiavone says there is no question that one of the most incredible debuts in AEW culminated with Hook becoming FTW Champion. As we understand it, this title is always in open challenge. Is that right, Hook? “Yup.” Okay. We’ve followed Hook’s career, short as it is still, and it has been tremendous. But wait! Out walks Zack Clayton! He introduces himself as “The Reality,” and he knows some recognize him from his reality TV superstardom in the great state of New Jersey!

Clayton tells Hook that he will take that FTW Championship from him, “you little wannabe tough guy New Yorker!” And Clayton will bring it to God’s Country, New Jersey, where it belongs! Hook nods and wave Clayton to bring it, but Clayton says no, he just got new boots made, they’re not ready it. And plus, being a Jersey guy, he does things on his terms. So how about we do this on next week’s Rampage? Hook holds up the belt to say sure thing! The match is made, will The Reality be the one getting a reality check against the Son of Taz?

 

Mark Henry speaks with tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man says Ari Daivari offered Orange Cassidy a spot in the Trustbusters, but what is it that Daivari sees in him? “Mark, Orange Cassidy is easily, hands down, one of the most talented professional wresters on the AEW roster. And now that my trust has officially kicked in, I am investing my hard earned money into the best talent around.” Look what he’s already down for Slim J and Parker Boudreaux! And Orange doesn’t wanna join that? He still wants to hang out with “those stupid goofs?” Hey, you don’t wanna join in, fine! They’ll do the next best thing, and Daivari will beat Orange’s ass in this old dump of a hometown, Minneapolis!

Wow. Well, uh, looks like there’s been enough talk. Orange, no, that’s Mark’s line. Oh. Well, it is true, though. It’s time for the main event! Will Cassidy give Quake by the Lake a Freshly Squeezed main event? Or will Daivari Dinero make that money?

Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends VS Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters!

The bell rings and fans rally for “Freshly Squeezed!” as he gives Best Friends his jacket and tie-dye shirt. Cassidy lifts up his hands but Daivari has him wait before putting them in his pockets. Daivari gets a mic and says, “I’m gonna give you one last chance to join the Trustbusters. All you have to do is lay down and let me pin you, then the four of us can get out of this sh*tty town.” Fans boo and Cassidy… nods?! Cassidy lies down and Daivari says he knew Cassidy was smarter than that. Cassidy is ready, Daivari takes a moment to decide what angle he’s coming in from, but then Cassidy rolls away!

Fans laugh and Cassidy tells Daivari to hurry up. Daivari goes to cover again but Cassidy rolls away again! Daivari is annoyed, he storms up but Cassidy rolls out of the ring. And then puts his hands up, to… Nope, Cassidy has to get in the ring as Daivari rushes out! Cassidy then rolls all the way to the far side and gets a GROUP HUG from Best Friends! Got to give the people what they want! But then Boudreaux and Slim J flank them! Chuck & Trent step to them, Daivari rushes out after Cassidy! Daivari puts Cassidy in but things speed up! Cassidy ducks, waistlocks, Daivari switches but Cassidy switches back.

Daivari switches again and he SLAMS Cassidy down! Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, goes for a leg, but then just puts his hands up. And he slips his hands inside the waistlock to put them in his pockets! Cassidy uses that to break free! And kangaroo kicks! Things speed up, Cassidy hurdles and SHOTGUNS Daivari down! Fans fire up as Cassidy kips up, and then he blocks Daivari’s kick! It was headed a little low and Daivari apologizes, but Cassidy shoves Daivari to a corner. Daivari goes up and out, Cassidy rushes in but into a shoulder! And then a DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Daivari grins and hugs it out with his team, NOT what the people want.

Daivari takes his time returning and Rampage goes picture in picture. Daivari drags Cassidy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Cassidy bounces off buckles. Daivari soaks up the heat from the fans and he stands Cassidy up. Daivari CHOPS Cassidy in the corner, follows him along the way to another corner, and then drags him up to whip corner to corner hard! Cassidy bounces off buckles again, and Daivari drags him back up. Daivari puts Cassidy in the ropes, CHOKES him, but lets off at 4. Slim J chokes Cassidy behind the ref’s back! Best Friends protest but the ref misses it all. Trent storms over but Slim J has Parker backing him up.

Daivari fights the backslide, but Cassidy fights it back. They struggle for control, Daivari swings Cassidy out for a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Daivari is annoyed, he slaps Cassidy around, and then drags him up to TOSS out of the ring! The ref watches Slim J and Parker, and Best Friends storm over to back them off. Daivari goes out to fetch Cassidy, and RAMS him into the apron! Daivari RAMS Cassidy into railing and soaks up the heat from the front row.

Daivari puts Cassidy in the ring, talks trash on Trent, then clamps onto Cassidy with a chinlock. Cassidy endures, pries at the hold, and fans rally as he works on the grip! Rampage returns to single picture as Cassidy has the hold open. Cassidy turns things around but Daivari turns them right back and shoves Cassidy to ropes! Daivari catches Cassidy to a SLEEPER, but Cassidy flails and reaches out! Cassidy is fading, and is turning red, but he gets the ROPEBREAK! Daivari SLAPS the arms off the ropes and puts the SLEEPER on again! Fans rally as Cassidy endures again, but the ref checks. The arm drops once! And then it drops twice!

But Cassidy gets his second wind, puts both hands up, and then puts them in his pockets! Cassidy RAMS Daivari into buckles, gets free and dodges a lariat, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide on the return! Fans rally up again as both men stir. A standing count starts and climbs, the Trustbusters and Best Friends coach their guys up. Cassidy gets to a corner and drags himself up while Daivari stands. Daivari runs in but only gets buckles! Cassidy runs in but gets put on the apron! Cassidy blocks a punch to bump Daivari and then climbs. Daivari CHOPS Cassidy, then CHPOS again!

Cover, TWO!! Daivari is furious but he drags Cassidy up. Daivari says Cassidy should’ve accepted the offer. Daivari hammerlocks the arm, but Cassidy arm-drags him away! Cassidy tilt-o-whirls and DDTs! Fans fire up and Cassidy goes up top, DEEP IMPACT!! Cover TWO!! Daivari survives two DDTs in a row but the armband comes off!

Cassidy DIVES to take Parker out! Cassidy hurries back up but Daivari trips him up! Daivari crosses the arms, ICONOCLASM!! Cover, TWO!! Daivari is furious but he slashes his throat! He vows to end this with the hammerlock and LION- NO, Cassidy ducks then rolls Daivari up. ONE as Daivari rolls through, Cassidy ducks the superkick to ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Cassidy wins!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Cassidy refused to sell out Slim J CLOBBERS Cassidy! But Best Friends TOSS Slim J out Only to turn around and get CLOBBERED by Parker! Parker SPLASHES Chuck in one corner, then SPLASHES Trent in the other, and roars! Fans boo but Orange is back up! And Sonny Kiss rushes out there! Kiss did just lose to Parker, so- Kiss LOW BLOWS Cassidy!?!? And then Parker gives Orange the SLAM!! Did Kiss just sell out to the Trustbusters!? Did that happen between now and that match earlier? Or was it all part of the plan?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to close out the first Quake by the Lake event, with some surprising developments here. While Parker Boudreaux didn’t really change his moveset up from when he was Harland in NXT, he of course wins here tonight in a squash. Then we got an awesome main event out of Cassidy VS Daivari, even with Best Friends and the Trustbusters ringside. I was a touch surprised Cassidy won, but then that brawl at the end with Kiss swerving and turning Heel was a great way for Trustbusters to stand tall here. The go-home math is now a wash, but I would think Best Friends win to advance in the trios tournament.

Speaking of that tournament, great promo from the LFI and extended faction, as well as from Keith & Swerve. A title match between Keith & Swerve VS Private Party is going to be awesome, but I would think the champions retain the titles. Private Party going after LFI would be great to turn Private Party Face. Good promo from Lucha Bros to hype up their Trios Championship tournament match, and I would think Death Triangle beats The United Empire, pinning one of Aussie Open. And their promo implies that no matter who the third man is for the Young Bucks, LFI advances. AKA it’ll be Brandon Cutler because the Bucks have no one else, and he takes the pin.

Really fun match from Gunn Club and Beardhausen, but rather surprising that Gunn Club won. Billy is really ripping into his own sons, I have a feeling he just pushes them into joining Stokely’s stable. Stokely’s got Ethan Page, he’s got Lee Moriarty, he needs a tag team before can start taking over AEW properly, and it could be Gunn Club. Great promo segment from Hook and Zack Clayton, and this is a great opportunity for Clayton to move up in the world. The Mixed Tag Championship match was a great opening match, and while Dante & Skye looked great, I figured SamTay would win to retain.

And we got a great promo from Bryan and Garcia to open the whole show, and I am so happy Bryan is taking this story the way I was hoping. Daniel Garcia is definitely more a BCC guy than a JAS guy, so I hope the best two outta three falls match starts getting Garcia to consider his position in the feud. There’s a lot that Garcia can bring into the BCC, from both a moment of dysfunction since he battled Yuta for the ROH Pure Championship and was insufferable to the other BCC members, to more fire in the faction because they can get even more titles now. I can’t wait to see where this goes next.

My Score: 8.7/10
