But the Acclaimed ruin the Inner Circle’s entrance! “Beach Break, teams getting teeth scraped! Yo, we ’bout to win the sweepstakes. Everybody go away, yo, we great. Yo, everybody here, they hate! Yo, we ain’t so choosy. Put it right between your eyes like Lil’ Uzi! We gettin’ the shot!

PNP go to double suplex John Silver, but Silver double suplexes them! He’s friggin’ jacked, baby! Silver runs and aims at PNP but they get around to double TOSS and ELIMINATE Silver! No more Dark Order and the Inner Circle high fives. But Nick Jackson CROSSBODIES Santana and Jericho! Nick rallies on PNP, spin kick, shining wizard, bulldog clothesline combo! Fans fire up with Nick as he throws and ELIMINATES Ortiz! And then baits Santana in to put him in the apron. Santana hits back but Nick SUPERKICKS and ELIMINATES him! No more Proud ‘n’ Powerful! Kassidy SCREW KICKS Nick, but here are the Good Brothers?! They’re letting Private Party know they’re here.

But now, it’s Caster for the Acclaimed, Jungle Boy for Jurassic Express, Darius Martin for Top Flight, but Sammy Guevara & Y2MJF for the Inner Circle!

Winners: Chris Jericho & MJF (head to AEW Revolution to challenge the Young Bucks)

Sammy doesn’t even stick around to celebrate, he wants nothing to do with Maxwell Jacob Friedman taking his place beside Jericho. But will Jericho be the first to have held both AEW World and AEW Tag Team Championships in his career?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Jade Cargill.

Tall. Strong. Agile. And only getting better with each passing moment. Will Jade strike the American Nightmare and Red Velvet down at the Revolution?

 

AEW returns with Tony Schiavone in the ring!

Schiavone introduces the TNT Champion, Darby Allin! And of course, his partner in the AEW Revolution Street Fight, it’s STIIIIIING~! But before going to the Street Fight, Darby is going to defend his AEW TNT Championship against the Bad Boy, Joey Janela! Team Taz interrupts from the titantron! Taz wants to explain something! They’re stuck outside the building and that costs them a pretty penny, just because they went after some merchandise staffers last week. They’re being punished! But Taz says Darby is defending that “pretty” title against Janela, but Team Taz will be watching very closely! They might even get close up and personal!

Ricky Starks says it doesn’t matter if Sting is there. If Team Taz was allowed in the building, Starks would tell Sting he isn’t the man he used to be! Sting isn’t the icon anymore! And like Starks said before, Darby and Sting will get hurt playing in the jungle. But good luck, Darby, you’ll need it. Schiavone lets Sting respond on the mic. “Okay, Team Taz. You say that you’re gonna be here next week for Darby’s title match, and I gotta let you know, I’m gonna be here, as well.” Sting will keep this fair as 1v1 and not Darby VS everyone underneath Taz. Secondly, Starks says he doesn’t see the icon in Sting’s eyes anymore? Maybe Starks just needs to take a closer look. Will Team Taz get an eyeful come the Revolution Street Fight?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Britt Baker w/ Rebel!

After weeks of back and forth, both with trash talk and ambush attacks, we finally have this grudge match the Role Model never wanted! Will Britt have to check her teeth after this fight with the former NWA Women’s World Champion?

Rosa gets right in the ring and doesn’t wait for a bell! She shoves Rebel out of the ring, Britt goes after Rosa and drags her down! Rosa fights off the Rings of Saturn to a cover, TWO! Basement dropkick! Rosa gets Britt’s arm to omoplata then pulls on the other! Britt moves around and gets the ropebreak with a foot! Rosa lets go reluctantly, but bumps Britt off buckles!

AEW shares an exclusive interview from after last week’s Dynamite.

Matt Hardy was just as upset as the Dark Order and Hangman Page about Chaos Project trying to ruin Negative One’s birthday party. Hardy asked Tony Khan for a match against Chaos Project, with Hangman as his partner. Khan of course said it would be on Hangman to accept that proposal. Hangman has, and Schiavone asks Hardy his intentions. There are no secret intentions. Hardy is a good man, and he is a friend of Hangman’s from even before Stadium Stampede and before AEW. They’re good ol’ Carolina boys and probably have great chemistry. Hangman says Hardy simply offered Hardy his dressing room. This isn’t about becoming a tag team or being a client.

Hardy says that’s fine, he has no ulterior motives. He’s just worried about Hangman. A week ago, Chaos Project ruined Brodie Jr’s party. That didn’t sit right with either of them. So what if they, for one night only, teamed up to kick Chaos Project’s ass? Wouldn’t that help make things right between Hangman and the Dark Order? Hangman says yes, and so the match is made! And it’s next!

Hangman Page & Matt Hardy VS Chaos Project!

As it stands, this Carolina connection is for one night only, in this one match against Luther and Serpentico! Will they make the Original Death Dealer and SNAKEMAN pay for bullying a boy at his birthday party?

AEW returns as Chaos Project enters the ring. The teams sort out and Serpentico starts and goes right after Hardy! Hardy DECKS Serpentico, bumps him off buckles over an dover, then rams his shoulder in! The ref counts but Hardy says, “This is for Brodie Jr!” Hardy DECKS Serpentico, wrenches his arm and yanks on the arm. Tag to Hangman, Hardy whips and elbows Serpentico, Hangman hits a standing shooting star! Cover, TWO! Serpentico flounders, Hangman CHOPS him to a corner! Hangman whips corner to corner, runs in to corner clothesline, then snap suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Hangman wrenches, tags Hardy, and Hardy hops up to drop ax handles! Hardy wrenches Serpentico but Serpentico ROCKS him! Serpentico headlocks, Hardy powers out but Luther tags in. Hardy gives Serpentico a SIDE EFFECT, but Luther CLOBBERS Hardy! Luther stomps Hardy, bumps him off buckles then CHOPS him! Luther whips Hardy corner to corner, tags in Serpentico, and Serpentico whips Luther for Luther to whip Serpentico into Hardy! Luther then runs in to SPLASH them both! Luther throws Hardy down, then scoops Serpentico to SLAM him down for the cover! TWO! Serpentico keeps on Hardy with clubbing forearms, and tags in Luther.

Luther goes after Hardy, scoop slams him, then tags Serpentico in. Serpentico goes up, leaps, but the Swanton FLOPS! Hardy hurries, hot tag to Hangman! Hangman rallies on Chaos Project, then dodges Serpentico to scoop him, for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman then PLANCHAS Luther for good measure! Hangman keeps moving, Serpentico dodges the clothesline but not the SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Hardy sees Luther and ROCKS him to toss him! Hangman drags Serpentico up, fireman’s carry, but Serpentico fights free! But into the ROLLING ELBOW! Hangman goes to the apron but Luther trips him! Luther then CANNONBALLS from the apron, but Hangman dodges!

Hangman aims at Serpentico, BUCK SHOT! Hardy tags in, covers, they still win!

Winners: Matt Hardy & Hangman Page, by pinfall

Big Money Matt has a big ego, but Hangman still raises his hand in victory! It’s just the one night, after all. But will Hardy try to sell Hangman on making this a regular thing?

AEW’s Alex Marvez finds Y2MJF backstage.

The new contenders are already celebrating becoming the future Le Champions of the World! Peace out, MARK-vez! They’ve got bubbly for the boys! Party time~! The Inner Circle did it! Really? Because just Jericho and MJF are contenders. But they’re all in this together! Are they? Of course! So okay, everyone else got thrown out before the end, but it’s collateral damage. Oh, collateral damage? Why are they always collateral damage? Jericho says they’re all in this together, but sometimes Sammy isn’t sure. Sammy storms out and Jericho goes to talk with him. MJF tells the boys that this is time to have a conversation. Wardlow, have the cameraman leave. Wardlow closes the door, what is MJF going to tell Hager, Santana and Ortiz?!

 

AEW presents the Superbad Wedding!

Finally, after rubbing their love in our faces for over a year, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford are going to tie the knot! Schiavone is backstage with the Superbad Groom, his Best Man, and their butler, “Charles.” Schiavone congratulates Kip on the big night. Kip says Schiavone is so lucky to have this exclusive with him, Miro and Chuck. Look at all of them, huh? Miro is married, Schiavone is married, Kip’s about to be married, and Chuck hasn’t had a girlfriend ever. But then Vickie Guerrero comes over to say it’s time. They head out, and presiding over this occasion is a rather “sinister minister,” James Mitchell!

Vickie helps walk Kip to the ring, Miro just behind and then Chuck even further behind. And then with the traditional “Here Comes the Bride” on organ, it’s the Superbad Bride, with Jerry Lynn giving her away. Minister Mitchell says, “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here tonight at AEW Dynamite’s Beach Break, to celebrate the joining of these two souls, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford, in the bonds of UNHOLY matrimony!” It’s his gimmick, relax. The marital vows are sacred and not to be taken lightly. Now, Kip and Penelope will share personal vows.

Kips is first and he tells Penelope and says from the first moment he saw that one piece and knee high boots, and as his eyes locked with her chest, he knew this was meant to be. Kip promises to cherishes her forever cuz she is beautiful on the inside and DAMN HOT on the outside! Penelope takes her turn, and tells Kip “baby,” that she loves him so much. He has the biggest- Whoa, she doesn’t need to share that. He knows she loves him and is handsome and that she can’t wait to spend the rest of her life with him. Well alright. Moving on, it is the exchange of the rings. Please present the rings.

Charles brings them out of his pocket, Miro hands them to Kip. Kip takes one ring, wipes away a tear, and Minister Mitchell asks if he takes this “alluring creature” to be his lawfully wedded wife, to have and to grope in sickness and in health, for richer and poorer, kayfabing all others, for as long as they both shall live? Kip does. He places the ring on her finger. Penelope, do you take this “dashing rapscallion,” to be her lawfully wedded husband, to have and to grope in sickness and in health, for richer and poorer, kayfabing all others for as long as they both show live? Penelope does. Then if there is anyone in this building who feels that this-

No no no no no! Miro’s been there himself, this isn’t happening. Smart! Then let’s close this deal. By the power vested in Minister Mitchell by AEW Dynamite and Tony Khan, he now pronounces them man and wife. Now kiss your ball and chain. And they definitely kiss. Let’s hear it for the newlyweds! Fans cheer, and Mitchell wants us all to join the Best Man, Miro, in a toast. Miro has the mic, and tells Chuck to serve champagne. Everyone else, shut up, this is his time. Miro takes a glass, hands it to Penelope, then one to Kip. Chuck is working so Miro takes his and then another.

“Kip, I was there just a few years ago when I had a couple weddings myself.” Miro knows what this is about: love. But what is love? It may not have been a great bachelor party, there may not be many presents, but Miro IS Kip’s present. Miro’s knowledge, power and intensity are Kip’s presents! Speaking of, what is that over there? It’s been driving him nuts. It’s huge. Chuck says that’s from him? Well hey, how great, Mr. Charles. But Miro has been through weddings before, and he knows all the tricks! Miro attacks the box, thinking someone is hiding inside! Oh, it was just a bunch of tissue? Well, alright. Chuck, clean that up. No more presents from you.

Miro continues to say, “What is love?” Fans start singing, “Baby don’t hurt me! Don’t hurt me, no more~!” Miro gets into it, but then says NO! This is over, this is his time! Let’s have cake! But then Miro finds out he’s cuffed to the ropes!! Chuck snuck that in! Chuck DECKS Kip, Kip bumps Penelope, and she falls into the cake! Now it’s a wrestling wedding! Miro still grabs Chuck, Kip runs over, but Chuck ducks and Kip hits Miro! Miro barely budges but Kip still apologizes. Penelope goes after Chuck! She hops on for a sleeper, Kip kicks Chuck in the gut, and Miro swipes as he can. Kip stomps Chuck down and shouts, “You ruined everything!”

But out of the cake, it’s ORANGE CASSIDY! Freshly Squeezed was the cake all along! And then Chuck uses the champagne bucket to SMACK Kip! Miro is stuck as Cassidy Gives Kip the BEACH BREAK! How fitting. And best of all, Chuck is free! His deal was only until the wedding was done, and it is done! Will Best Friends make sure the Best Man and the Superbads don’t enjoy the honeymoon period?

 

AEW has BREAKING NEWS!

Last Thursday, during Inside the NBA on TNT, Shaq called out “Cupcake Cody” and told him he’ll beat Cody like he did Charles Barkley. Shaq’s going to wrestle Cody? The others don’t believe him, but Shaq is doing it. Him and Jade VS Cody and “Red Pumpkin Pie.” But Cody’s from a famous wrestling family. That doesn’t matter to Shaq, he’ll whip him. Shane Mosley got a bit more than he expected so maybe Shaq can do it. Shaq’s finisher will be the Black Tornado. He demonstrates on Plexiglas, he takes the ball and turns to really lay in that elbow, followed up by a clothesline! That’s what’ll happen to the cupcake. But bigger than that, this won’t wait for Revolution, this will be on DYNAMITE! March 3rd, mark it down on your calendars!

 

Lumberjack Match: Lance Archer VS Eddie Kingston!

The Murderhawk Monster has been after the Mad King for several months now, but the Fam has always been there! Now it might be even with the rest of the AEW locker room here, will any of the lumberjacks be safe when #EverybodyDies?

Archer rushes the ring, rushes Kingston, but Kingston avoids him and Archer ends up in a corner! The bell rings just before Kingston fires off body shots but Archer ROCKS and BOOTS Kingston down! Archer whips Kingston out, but Kingston gets back in before lumberjacks get to do anything. He may have preferred them as Archer CLUBS him! Archer says there’s no more running away, but then Archer runs, only for The Fam to trip him up! Butcher and Blade drag Archer out, and they get help mugging Archer from The Hybrid2 and Cezar Bononi! But Archer fights back and grabs Peter Avalon to choke him against a post!

Archer runs at Avalon but Avalon dodges and Archer POSTS himself! Butcher and Blade attack again, as does Bononi, but the other lumberjacks shout at them to put Archer back in. Archer is put in the ring, Kingston is after Archer with a whip but Archer reverses to send Kingston back out. Billy Gunn puts Kingston in, Kingston gets back out, but Kingston CLOBBERS Ryan Nemeth! The other lumberjacks go after Kingston, but then Kingston’s Fam and their lumberjack friends go after them! It’s a brawl on the outside, but Archer builds speed to FLY!

All the Mad King’s horses and all the Mad King’s men couldn’t help him win again! The Murderhawk Monster overcomes all, and is rolling, will he be waiting on a title after Revolution?

 

AEW hears from FTR.

They were banned from the Tag Team Battle Royal for what they did to Luchasaurus and tried to do to Jungle Boy, but now they seem upset. Cash Wheeler says, “Jack, please. Please tell me that you and your dumbass dinosaur did not run to the principal’s office, and tattle and get us suspended like we’re in middle school.” Tully Blanchard says that’s what happened. They #FearTheRevelation! Everyone is afraid of FTR, and when they’re together, that’s what happened. First, Tully isn’t allowed in the tag title match. Then, two guys are cuffed to the dinosaur. Where is this going to stop? Now they miss out on the battle royal where they could’ve gotten a title shot?!

All they want is a championship match! “The best tag team, what does it take?!” Wait, is there someone muffled screaming? Dax Harwood tells Jack that FTR aren’t bad guys. But sometimes, they think, “What would bad men do?” THEY HAVE MARKO STUNT AS A HOSTAGE! Tully pats Stunt’s head, but what will FTR do to him if they don’t get what they consider #FairTReatment?

 

Joey Janela speaks.

“Darby Allin, we have a long history of mangling ourselves for what we love. Hell, we have a long history, Darby, of mangling each other.” But next week’s Dynamite, the stakes have never been so high! Bad Boy VS Relentless for the TNT Championship! But guess what? Joey Janela’s back, and the future TNT Champion is going to be a bad, bad boy.

 

Six Man Tag: Jon Moxley, PAC & Rey Fenix VS Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers w/ Don Callis!

What was meant to be Death Triangle getting payback for the #BizCliz punking them out has now become the Maniac joining forces with the Bastard and the Firebird for a common goal! Moxley wants payback for what the Cleaner did to take the world title from him, while Pac and Fenix are going to avenge Penta El Zero M! Will keeping your friends close or your enemies closer be what wins out tonight?

AEW returns as two-thirds of Death Triangle make their entrance and Don Callis joins commentary. Pac and Fenix make their entrances much like their third man, and Moxley enters from the stands with them! The teams sort out, Machine Gun Anderson starts against Pac. Fans rally as the two circle, and Pac fires a forearm but Anderson gives it back! They go back and forth, Anderson headlocks, Pac powers out but Anderson runs him over!

My Thoughts:

Wow, what an insane episode! Opening with the tag team battle royal was natural, and it was a brilliant move for Good Brothers to show up to not just cost Private Party but also Young Bucks. This ties together both the story building on Impact Wrestling but also what’s going on with the Bucks, Omega and Good Brothers here on AEW. I almost thought they were going to go a different direction with the Inner Circle story for just a second, because of how Jericho said any two of them makes a great combination, and it came down to him, Sammy and Darius Martin of Top Flight. If Darius went out, I would’ve thought they could claim Le Sex Gods are the winning team. But Sammy goes out first, Y2MJF get the title shot, and MJF is definitely going to usurp the faction from Jericho, leaving Sammy as Jericho’s only ally. It might happen when Y2MJF loses the tag title match and that is the “last straw.”

They also cleverly used last week as a way to keep FTR out of the battle royal while extending the feud with Jurassic Express. FTR had a good promo, Stunt being their hostage was a great twist, and I hope we get a killer tag match for at least the go-home to Revolution. Speaking of, the go-home having Shaq & Jade VS Cody & Red Velvet is actually a great move. It gets AEW ratings, and leaves space on the Revolution card for something else, maybe even something relating to the Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament. The bracket looks great, and I would love if we end up with Jay VS Tay for the US semifinals to add some drama to their friendship. And while they did announce Deeb VS Riho as an opening round match, I actually hope they change that since the bracket wasn’t filled out.

Britt VS Rosa was a great match, but of course Rebel is why Britt wins. I hope the other US semifinal is the rematch so that Rosa can win and get to the US bracket finals and then to the finals and become a contender. We got an okay promo segment to plug the Revolution Street Fight, but it was all just Sting for his side. The Street Fight is going to be really good, but the build is still lacking. Janela had a good promo, his match with Darby is going to be a lot of fun. Hardy and Hangman in the tag match was pretty good, and it’s good progress in their story, I hope we get the Dark Order asking Hangman what’s going on.

As wrestling weddings go, tonight’s was good. It made natural references to what the WWE has done, especially with Miro, and it worked out at least because Cassidy came out of the cake. I’m thinking we get Chuck & Cassidy VS Miro & Kip for at least the go-home to make that an even bigger night. The lumberjack match was a lot of fun, Archer and Kingston are now 1-1 I believe, so I hope we get a tiebreaker at some point. Archer also getting involved after that amazing Six Man Tag is great reference to his past in NJPW with Bullet Club. Bullet Club winning the Six Man was a bit of a surprise, but I suppose they really couldn’t afford to lose since they’re all champions.

KENTA showing up was a genius move because it means AEW accepts that Bullet Club is for life, and that Moxley will be working with NJPW still because he is still their US Champion. If anyone was doubting Kenta VS Moxley happening on NJPW Strong being all that good, this just made it feel like a big time match!

My Score: 9.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley is here!

The Maniac came dangerously close to annihilating Lord William Regal last week given how angry he was over the Full Gear screwjob. And that anger hasn’t exactly lessened since. But as fans chant for him, he’s here tonight to say, “I grew up about 90 miles from here. When I first started, I used to wrestle here in Indianapolis all the time, down in the old Fountain Square at the Salvation Army Gym.” Fans cheer for that shoutout. “That was a long time ago. This has been a crazy ass ride. You never know what’s around the corner. But there are three constants in this world, three certainties: death; taxes; and Jon Moxley.” Fans also cheer that!

Moxley says “There is nobody that can outwork me, out hustle me, out wrestle me, out fight me, out bleed me or out sweat me! Today, nothing’s really changed. Nothing’s really changed since day one in AEW. I am at THE top of the food chain! I do what I want and I say what I want. This AEW ring belongs to me! And you can bet your ass there is not a man in that locker room, there isn’t a man in this building, there isn’t a man within 100 miles that has the balls to come out here, look me in the eyes and tell me any different.” But here comes HANGMAN! Adam Page is back and Indianapolis can’t believe it!

Hangman storms down to the ring, not yet cleared to compete but clearly not caring! And he gets right in the face with the man who concussed him in Moxley! Fans are ready for “COWBOY SH*T!” but Moxley smirks. “You sure you wanna do this, man, after what happened last time? Oh, I’m sorry. Do you not remember last time?” Hangman DECKS Moxley, proving he does! Hangman keeps after Moxley as they go outside the ring and he fires off! Moxley RAMS Hangman into railing but Hangman DECKS him again! Hangman wants after Moxley but security and referees rush out! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” and Moxley gets loose, only for Hangman to CLOBBER him!

Hangman rains down fists, Moxley gets back up, and Moxley dares Hangman to try that again. Hangman storms up and he DOES hit Moxley again! Fans are loving it but even MORE refs rush out to stop this! Fans still want to “Let Them Fight!” and Moxley breaks loose! Moxley takes a spill off the ramp, but he gets up again! They scrap, but the security and refs pile on top of them to smother this fight. Moxley goes out one tunnel, Hangman goes out the other, what will keep these two from fighting backstage!?

 

Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Bryan Danielson!

FTR acknowledged that they have had perhaps the best year possible as a tag team, but Dax the Ax wants to prove himself worthy against THE BEST WRESTLER in the world! The American Dragon accepted that challenge, and now we see if Dax is right. IS Bryan Danielson the best in the world? Or will Dax take that title and add it to his collection?

They throw haymakers and CHOPS, Dax ROCKS Bryan and suplexes him up and over the railing! They crash down right in front of more fans! Indy is loving having the action right at their feet, but the ref checks both men. Dax and Bryan stir, sit up, and Dax fist bumps fans as he returns to ringside. Bryan is slower to stand, crawls his way to the ring, and Dax goes out to meet him. Dax eggs Bryan on, goes back into the ring, and Bryan slowly gets to the apron.

The count is 5 of 10 but Bryan gets in. Dax storms up to Bryan and Bryan eggs him on. Dax ROCKS Bryan, brings him around and CHOPS! And then CHOPS again! Bryan staggers to another corner but Dax follows him over to UPPERCUT! Dax UPPERCUTS again, then CHOPS again! Dax even hurt his hand on that one! Dax drags Bryan up again, to whip corner to corner. Dax runs in but Bryan BOOTS him back! Bryan ROCKS Dax with a forearm, CHOPS back, CHOPS more and more, then spins, into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Dax holds on as Dynamite returns to single picture, for another GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another!

Fans fire up with both men down on the mat. Dax stands up, climbs the corner, but Dax hops down to stalk Bryan. Dax drags Bryan up but Bryan switches. Dax switches, Bryan switches, repeat, but then Dax fakes Bryan out! Dax reels Bryan in but Bryan back drops the driver away! Dax makes that a sunset flip but Bryan rolls through, rolls Dax, and then ducks the haymaker. Dax ducks the roundhouse, then feints a haymaker to reel Bryan in! PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!!

They DOUBLE LARIAT, and DOUBLE LARIAT and DOUBLE LARIAT again!

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

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

The Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal is back! But this time the prize is a match with MJF for the ring, and the Diamond Ring contender can name the time and place they face him for it! Matt Hardy, Brian Cage, Ethan Page, Jungle Boy, Dalton Castle and Captain Shawn Dean are among the known participants, but who comes out on top to go after MJF’s other precious possession?

 

Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

Tony Schiavone brings up next week’s special Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal. The Absolute is the #1 contender to MJF’s AEW World Championship, and he’s in action later tonight to warm-up for Winter is Coming. Starks says that’s right, but he would like to make “an absolute announcement.” Starks is entering IN that battle royal! Starks is going to make a judgment call right now: Starks will WIN that battle royal! Why? Because Starks is coming for everything MJF has! The title, the diamond ring, and his spot at the top! Everything MJF has is owed to Starks as well. He is Absolute for a reason, he proves it tonight, next week and ultimate proves it at Winter is Coming! Will Ricky Starks single-handedly change the AEW landscape to close out the year?

 

Hangman Page is being escorted out by security.

But then he spots Moxley! The brawl is back on!! Who could’ve guessed?! They ditch the couple of security guards, and Hangman TOSSES Moxley into a garage door! Security rushes back in with reinforcements, but Moxley throws them aside to get at Hangman! Security and refs pry these two apart for what feels like the hundredth time already, what will it take for these two to wait for a match?

 

Renee Paquette holds a special sit-down interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Renee is live in Nashville with Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker and thanks them for this time. She also has the Blackpool Combat Club’s Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli here. She thanks them for being here, and thanks them all for agreeing to no physicality. Renee starts with Claudio, but then Menard speaks up! When Claudio loses to Chris Jericho next week and has no choice but to be in the JAS, “The beautiful thing about being a sports entertainer, Claudio, is you can be anything you want! You like yodeling? You can be a yodeler!” Renee has the JAS calm down, she hadn’t even asked a question.

The JAS oblige, and Renee says that at ROH Final Battle, in the main event, it will be Claudio VS Jericho for the ROH World title. What would it mean to Claudio to regain that title and bring it back to professional wrestling? It would mean a whole lot. That was his first world title anywhere. It would silence the doubting voice in his head that says he can’t win “the big one.” He needs to prove that, and vows he will prove that. Hager speaks up to just say, “I like this hat!” Then he takes out a matching bucket hat from his fanny pack, and he offers it to Claudio! Deep down, Claudio the Sports Entertainer will love the hat. They can be a great tag team again!

Claudio says he is sick of this! He is sick of the JAS, of sit-down interviews, and being on stage with microphones. He came to AEW to prove he is the best WRESTLER! He does that at Final Battle when he beats Jericho! Claudio throws his chair away but the JAS laughs like hyenas. Garcia says the BCC is falling apart! Yuta says Garcia shouldn’t talk about stuff he knows nothing about! Garcia says alright, here’s what he does know: he made the right choice staying with the JAS! Because that little combat club is falling apart! They’ll prove it next week on Dynamite by “beating up some pro-wrestling dorks!” Hager & Garcia VS Claudio & Yuta!

Yuta says he is done with the JAS, the stupid hat, the stupid nicknames, and those suspenders with a belt. What the hell are you doing, Parker? The only reason Garcia isn’t just dead to Yuta is because Yuta wants that ROH Pure Championship! So yeah, tag match challenge accepted. But at Final Battle, Garcia puts the Pure title on the line and they end this. Garcia says okay then. Yuta storms off now, will the BCC reclaim gold and honor to end their 2022?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS AR Fox!

Sure, Wardlow wants his belt back, but #TwoBeltsJoe is already ready to move on. Will Joe stay the Double Television Champion? Or will the newest high-flyer to go #AllElite start off with a bang?

The introductions are made, the AEW title is raised, and we see just who is The Face of TNT!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Fans sing “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” as the two tie up. Joe powers Fox to a corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Joe then throws a body shot, JAB, JAB, JAB, JAB, and HEAD CHOP! Fans fire up, Joe stomps Fox and drags him up. Joe DECKS Fox, then mockingly applauds. Joe brings Fox up but Fox throws hands! Joe HEADBUTTS Fox, runs, but Fox goes Matrix to duck the lariat! Fox PELES Joe and Joe tumbles out of the ring! Fans fire up as Fox builds speed and FLIES! But Joe moves aside! Only for Fox to roll through and stand back up! Joe turns around into a BOOT!

Joe gets in the ring, Fox follows and CLUBS away! Joe sweeps the legs! Fox lands on his face, Joe lands on Fox with a SENTON! Joe snarls at Fox as AEW goes picture in picture.

Joe covers, TWO! Joe sits Fox up to CHOP him to ropes, then stands him up. Joe bumps Fox off buckles, then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Joe storms up to Fox, drags him up, but Fox throws body shots! Fox runs, but Joe CLOBBERS him! Joe snarls, stalks Fox and then covers, ONE!! Fox is showing toughness and that amuses Joe. Joe drags Fox up, snapmares him and clamps on a hard neck wrench! Fox endures as Joe leans all his weight on the twist! Fox fights up as fans rally, and Fox throws body shots. Joe throws Fox down by his head! The ref reprimands, and Fox sits up, into a MULE KICK! Cover, TWO!

Now Joe is frustrated as Fox sticks around. Joe stalks Fox to ropes, drags him up, and bumps him off buckles. Joe CLUBS away on Fox’s back with big forearm shots, then CHOPS him on the back! Fox slumps down and Joe smirks as he digs his boot in. The ref count, Joe lets off, and then Joe paces around. Joe drags Fox back up, HEADBUTTS him, but Fox kicks back! Joe throws a forearm, Fox kicks, repeat, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fox runs, but Joe scoops to a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Fox barely bridges up for that, and Joe taunts him. Joe puts Fox in a corner, hoists him up top, but Fox throws forearms!

Joe CHOPS Fox back! And then climbs up after Fox, but Fox throws body shots! Joe steps back, Fox FLYING DDTs! Fans fire up and Fox MULE KICKS, BUZZSAWS, but then Joe ducks the heel kick, only to get a BASEMENT CUTTER! Fox hurries up top, 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Joe survives and shocks Fox! Fans fire up as Fox pounds the mat. Fox has some blood in his mouth but he just goes back up top. Fox leaps, but Joe moves aside. This time Fox crashes and burns! Joe runs to POUNCE Fox into the ropes! Joe hoists Fox up top, tucks him in, MUSCLE BUSTER!! Cover, Joe wins!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

A strong first defense, he gets both belts on his shoulders, and then he gets a mic. “Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to welcome you to a new and glorious era! For I am the One True King of Television!” But Wardlow is on the tron! “Hey, self-proclaimed King of TV. Wow, that’s almost as good as the last nickname you came up with in War Joe. Listen, I hope you enjoyed playing the role, because I’m coming for what’s mine! Cuz Joe, this ain’t your world, this is WARDLOW’S WORLD!” Wardlow has the fans chanting his name, will Joe have to watch his back from now on?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs continues his homecoming journey.

Still in Oakland, California, Hobbs says, “I walk along these streets… I’ve been bullied, I’ve been beaten up. It’s only made me tougher.” The guys on the street rolling dice spot him and give him space. They all wonder who that was, but know not to mess with him. Hobbs continues to narrate, “I’m going to let each and every one of you feel the pain, the hurt, the happiness. I’m taking what belongs to me.”

 

AEW presents a new Technique By Taz.

We review Hook’s match with Lee Moriarty in defense of the FTW Championship. Taz points out that Hook’s escape from the Border City Stretch was all about breaking wrist control and sitting out to shift and pop free. Then Hook gets the half nelson and cross choke for the Redrum. Moriarty may be a submission savant, but Hook might be a prodigy. Will the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil continue to make his father proud in defending that title?

 

William Regal is here!

Indianapolis boos as “this snake, this coward” (Excalibur’s words on commentary) makes his way to the ring. Moxley is no longer in the building so Regal doesn’t have to hide. He walks down the Burberry carpet and into the ring where something is on a pedestal under a cover. Regal gets a mic while fans boo more, and he says, “Ladies and gentlemen… Your new AEW World Champion… Maxwell Jacob Friedman!” MJF makes his entrance, here as promised last week. Fans are torn as MJF swaggers his way out, belt around his waist and Burberry scarf around his neck. MJF goes to the ring, mic already in hand.

MJF and Regal hug, and MJF says, “I know you people aren’t very bright, but when The Best Wrestler on God’s Green Earth is holding a microphone, you keep your hillbilly mouths shut.” Fans boo more as MJF says, “I would now like to tell you people how my and Mr. Regal’s unholy union-” Fans tell MJF to STFU and that gives him pause. “How uncouth.” But MJF finishes his thought by saying, “Not too long ago, Mr. Regal sent me an email and it was right after The Firm had attacked me, and that email reads as follows.

“Maxwell, I watched on as The Firm attacked you. It’s become very clear you’ve grown weak. I see all the potential in you to not just become a villain, but the greatest villain of our time. However, as I’ve said previously, you have much to learn. I’m willing to help you reach your true potential, but if you want to get the world title around your waist, this time you mustn’t grab the Dynamite Ring. Instead, you must grab the brass one. Yours Sincerely, Sir William Regal.” It was after that that MJF and Regal secretly met, and MJF is not afraid to admit that Regal is a genius.

MJF was more than apt to listen when Regal said to not use the diamond ring, but the brass knuckles. Regal didn’t want MJF to just beat Moxley, no no. He wanted MJF to leave Moxley with a lesson in the form of an emotional scar so that Moxley will never forget the day that he was outsmarted by MJF. “Now let’s talk about The Firm, shall we?” MJF knows everyone wants to know what he’s going to do to The Firm, “and to be honest, eh. I kinda respect The Firm. They saw a weakness in me, and like sharks smelling blood, they attacked, and I would’ve done the exact same thing.

“And let’s be fair, even if I did harbor some resentment, Mr. Regal, do I really seem like the type to chase anyone down?” Regal says no. MJF says that’d take effort. And as Indy knows oh too well, effort is for poors like all of them! See, MJF is above that. And speaking of things MJF is above, let’s talk about the belt, shall we? When MJF became our AEW World Champion, he made a promise to himself that he’d make changes around here. Out with the old, in with the new, and so looking at this belt, he wants to vomit in his mouth. And that’s not just from being in Indiana.

Fans boo more but MJF says, “It’s because it desperately needs an upgrade. This belt is tacky, it lacks class, and to make matters worse, it reminds me of all the men who held it previously. And if we’re being honest with ourselves, yeah, sure, they were all talented in their own rights, I guess. But I think we can all agree none of them are on my level. And that is specifically why this version of the title, much like all of you, is garbage.” MJF throws down Pretty Platinum! And then Regal unveils the BURBERRY STRAPPED AEW World Championship! MJF introduces to the world, the new and improved AEW World Championship, “Triple B: The Big Burberry Belt!”

Fans boo but MJF says this is now the most important, prestigious and prolific world title in all of pro-wrestling, and that’s because MJF is the one holding it! “No one, and I mean no one, deserves to be recognized as world champion except for me! Not any of your over-hyped, overrated pieces of trash you guys constantly push for. Fake tough guys like Eddie Kingston…” Fans start chanting for “Eddie! Eddie!” MJF says they can chant all they want, Eddie will NEVER be world champion. MJF calls out other fake tough guys like Ricky Starks. Starks is a fake star is what he is!

And speaking of fakes, let’s talk about the worst of the worst, the middest of the mid, fake wrestlers like Bryan Danielson! Fans boo but MJF says, “No offense, in comparison to me, Bryan Danielson couldn’t wrestle his way out of a gaddamn paper bag. No offense, Mr. Regal, you tried everything you could. Some people just can’t be helped.” MJF tells Indy to pipe down, but speaking of people who can’t be helped, here’s a message to everyone on HIS show, in HIS locker room and on HIS roster. “So long as I’m in this company, you will never know what it feels like to be on top, because I am going to be world champion for a very long time. All the way, in fact, until the bidding war of 2024!”

At that time, Triple B will be a bargaining chip to get the biggest money contract in the history of the business! MJF will make more money in a day than any of these white trash hicks in their miserable lives! “I just pray to God the right Khan foots the bill, and Lord knows I ain’t talking about Tony.” MJF grins at the camera because he’s talking about “Mah boi, jolly ol’ Saint Nick! And my other boy, The Game, Trips. And if I’m being completely transparent here, Mr. Regal, come January 1st, 2024, I don’t even know if a wrestling company wins the bidding war, because quite frankly, I am getting sick and tired of having to look at disgusting, grotesque professional wrestling fans on a weekly basis. Maybe Hollywood wins!”

MJF grins as fans boo more. But MJF isn’t deaf. He knows there is an interesting amount of fans who were over the moon for him to become champion! Okay, to those fans, fantastic. But call him “Mystic Max,” because their happiness will soon turn to resentment, because those fans are fickle! “Pretty soon, you’ll be saying stuff like, ‘I am sick of MJF! He’s so boring! He’s so repetitive! All he does is talk! He never wrestles. He’s a coward!’ There it is!” Fans chant “BORING~!” as MJF continues to predict the rants about making opponents jump through hoops. But to those people, MJF says, “Great.”

Because y’know who keeps tuning in, praying to God that someone takes Triple B off MJF? YOU! MJF says during his long and illustrious reign, Triple B will be defended very rarely, and he will wrestler very rarely, because unlike everyone else, he’s a special attraction. “In order for you discussing poors to see me defend my title, nine times outta ten, you will have to reach into your pockets for that small amount of money that you have, and buy a PPV in hopes to see someone dethrone me. Newsflash: they won’t. I am about to have a world title reign that will make Hulk Hogan, JBL and Jeff Jarrett seem short and sweet!

“I am about to have a world title reign that is gonna make that shmuck, Bruno Sammartino, roll in his shitty little grave!” Fans boo as MJF stoops to new lows in his insults. MJF says we are now in the Era of MJF, and his reign of terror has only just begun. Fans boo as he holds up Triple B, but then MJF remembers something! He knows fans are confused by all this, but hold on. MJF brings the brass knuckles out and says without these, and without Regal, none of this is possible. The fans might’ve booed when Regal came out here, but everyone still respects him, both fans and wrestlers alike. Because for 40 YEARS, Regal, has given blood, sweat, tears, and sacrificed so much to the business!

MJF gets fans to cheer Regal because Regal loves the business. So that’s why MJF wanted to say from the bottom of his heart, SUCKER PUNCH WITH THE KNUCKLES!!!! Fans boo as hard as ever as MJF walks over and squats by Regal’s prone body. “It’s funny. You said I had much to learn, and yet you’re the one who made a deal with The Devil. So allow me to leave you with the words you left me seven long years ago. ‘Will, the game has changed. MJF exclusive hires top talents and top world class athletes. When you’re of them, send me your stuff. Yours Sincerely, the World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman.'”

MJF drops the mic, brings Triple B with him, and leaves through the crowd. Bryan hurries to Regal’s side, along with the medics. Regal wanted to make the greatest villain of all time, but he have just created the worst monster of all time! Did MJF cross a line no one should ever cross?

 

AEW returns as Regal is loaded into an ambulance.

He has a neck brace and backboard as he is on the stretcher. Bryan is there, he’s going to ride with Regal to the hospital. Will Lord Regal be alright? Will someone avenge him by ruining all of MJF’s plans for his future?

 

Ricky Starks VS Ari Daivari!

Speaking of, the Absolute #1 contender plans to ruin the holidays for MJF by taking both world title AND diamond ring! Will Starks be red hot going into the battle royal? Or will Daivari Dinero already ruin Ricky’s own run?

Before the bell, Stokely Hathaway walks out to have everyone wait. He also has Ethan Page and Matt Hardy with him, and Hardy steals the spotlight by getting the fans cheering for V1 and “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” Stokely tells Hardy to get his ass to the back! Hardy smiles, but Ethan tells him to not forget that The Firm owns his ass! And in that Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal, Hardy’s gonna help Ethan win it all, because Ricky took away that #1 contendership away from him! So Ethan vows to take the battle royal from Starks. AND, Ethan is calling his shot right now!

At Winter is Coming, after MJF whoops Starks’ ass around the whole arena defending the world title successfully, Ethan will whoop MJF’s tired ass! Then Ethan will be the one with the diamond ring, and Starks will just watch and cry. IF he makes it to Winter is Coming. Daivari CLOBBERS Starks in the corner! The ref rings the bell, Daivari stomps a mudhole, then he fires off hands. Daivari whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to SPEAR! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Daivari up! Underhooks, gut wrench, ROSHAMBEAUX!! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

Starks looks at Ethan and Stokely as they’re already eating their words. Will All Ego be deflated in that battle royal? Will Starks win big again to then go for BOTH of MJF’s prizes?

 

Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, Britt Baker & Rebel.

Tony Schiavone is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, the Doctor, and the Doctor’s Assistant and brings up last week how Britt & Hayter won big in tag team action. Britt wants Tony to keep “Doctor” in how he addresses her. And also, she shouts out the big win by her Pittsburgh Steelers right here in Indianapolis. But let’s talk about what is really concerning: The coming sit-down interview Renee has with Saraya. Hayter has a great idea! Why not a sit-down interview with THE Women’s World Champion! A little chat even. And he will, next week. Renee can sit her ass at home! It’s settled, yours truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Willow survives and upsets TayJay! Fans fire up and cheer Willow on as she rises up. Anna shouts she’s gonna choke her out! QUEENSLAYER!! But BACKPACK SENTON turns that round! Willow drags Anna up and gut wrenches, but Tay gets on the apron! Willow DECKS her for it! Anna reels Willow in but Willow fights the clinch with elbows! Gut wrench, but Anna hooks a leg to roll! Cradle, TWO!! Anna hurries but Willow BOOTS and LARIATS! Fans fire up and Willow drags Anna back up! Gut wrench, DOCTOR BOMB!! Cover, Willow wins!

Winner: Willow Nightingale, by pinfall

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

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

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai himself says, “Before this week is done, you will have seen more of us making less of them.” The House is back from the dead, what does this mean for AEW?

Backstage interview with QT Marshall and Orange Cassidy.

Schiavone notes we all saw The Factory and Best Friends fall victim to the return of Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews. They agreed to this time to talk it out. QT wants to talk directly to Cassidy since he keeps getting interrupted. QT wants a shot at the All-Atlantic Championship. Cassidy says no problem. Oh, yeah, okay. Then this Friday on Rampage, it won’t just be a normal match! QT wants a Lumberjack match! Yeah, love it, great. See you then. QT can’t stand that, though he got what he wanted, Cassidy kept talking over him. But since he got what he wanted, will QT get the title? Or will he just get what he deserves?

 

The Baddies are here!

And it is a celebration for the still undefeated AEW TBS Champion! Jade Cargill is 42-0, has the physical belt back, and has Red Velvet back, though she kicked Kiera Hogan to the curb. That aside, they and Leila Grey go to the ring, Velvet and Leila in magenta to contrast with all the green and gold. The confetti cannons go off with red, while Jade has the mic to say, “Now we all know why we’re here tonight: because of me, and my big ass celebration! But before we begin, let me address something and set the record straight. I made the Baddies, I say who stays and who goes. Now you see, I got rid of the trash last week. So I’m so confused as to why you two were chilling with her this past weekend!”

Velvet shrugs, Leila rolls her eyes, but Jade says she is done playing games! Jade got her belt back from Nyla Rose at Full Gear! Understand that to stand next to Jade is a blessing. So either you two get in line, or they can step. Because they are eating on her dime, making names off of her, and this whole company is eating off of her! SHE is the brightest star the company has! Stand her next to any wrestler in the back, and every consumer knows she’s the star! No one has Jade’s face, Jade’s body, or Jade’s aura. NOBODY! Leila and Velvet seem to agree with that since they’re staying right there in the ring.

Jade then asks the fans, “So you tell me what we’re gonna do about that. And you all can play, but I put asses in seats!” Plenty of the fans agree with that. “I wrestle for bad bitches. Now cameramen, do your job and get my Baddies.” The cameras do in fact find the Indy Baddie Section as Jade continues. “I am the real deal! I am nothing but real. And like I said, I create careers. And speaking of careers, Lil’ Bow Wow is a joke! Is a total joke!” But wait, Bow Wow is on the tron! And he says, “Jadey, baby, you deserve all the flowers in the world. Congratulations on your little win. It was cute, really cute.”

But to get to business, time is money and Bow Wow is all about money. He’s done with his tour, has a lot of time on his hands, so what does that mean? “See you soon. Real, real soon.” Jade doesn’t understand what the hell is going on with Bow Wow, but she and the Baddies storm out of the ring. Who, if anyone, will ever dethrone #ThatBitch?

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Billy Gunn is with Max Caster & Anthony Bowens backstage, and he’s like a drill sergeant with his trainees. He asks, “Why is there a camera in our face?” Bowens answers, “Because AEW stands for Acclaimed Every Wednesday.” Billy asks, “Why do you two not have a match on Dynamite?” Caster answers, “Because Everyone Loves the Acclaimed, and no one wants to fight us, Daddy Ass.” Billy asks, “And what are you two going to do about it?” Bowens says, “I have an idea, Daddy Ass.” Then would he like to let us all know? Bowens says this Friday on Rampage, they give a tag title opportunity to the best tag team in AEW!

How can that possibly be when THEY are the best team in AEW?! Caster says Bowens meant the second best team, Daddy Ass. Sorry. Okay. Then there’s only one thing left to do: SCISSOR FINGER~!!! Who is the second best team in AEW? AKA the #1 contenders? We’ll see this Friday when Rampage returns to its regular time of 10 PM Eastern!

 

AEW World Trios Championships Best of 7, Match 3: Death Triangle VS The Elite!

PAC, Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M ruined the return of Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks with a bell hammer. Then they cheated the second match with another bell hammer. Will there be THREE hammers in this third match? Or can the Best Bout Machine and his boys finally get on the board?

The fans sing Carry On My Wayward Son for The Elite, and then the introductions are made. But then The Elite attack Death Triangle on the ramp! Omega is after Fenix, Matt Jackson is after Pac and Nick Jackson is after Penta! Fans fire up as the brawl goes from ramp to stage, but then also down the ramp. Indy fires up for “THE! ELITE! THE THE ELITE!” as Omega and Nick mug Fenix. Matt ROCKS Penta, the ref reprimands everyone, but Penta runs, into a back drop to the ramp! Nick kicks Fenix, runs to get a boost from Matt, the RANA sends Fenix down the ramp! Omega RAMS Pac into part to the tunnel, to hit a KOTARO KRUSHER to the stage!

The Bucks check on Omega, that elevated bulldog really hurts the tailbone and hip. Nick CLUBS away on Pac, drags him up, and Matt walks Pac with Nick down the ramp. They head for ringside, Omega walks off the pain, and the Bucks set Pac up. Omega runs down the ramp to build up speed, for a SUPERKICK from Pac!! The Lucha Brothers then somersault down the ramp, DOUBLE STUNNERS!! Death Triangle turns things around on Elite and this still isn’t even on record as AEW goes picture in picture!

Fenix CLUBS Omega, ROCKS him and they end up going around the ramp. Matt and Nick hobble, Penta and Pac keep on them. Omega and Fenix brawl just offstage in front of fans. Fenix UPPERCUTS, Penta CLUBS and KICKS Nick to send him along the pyro grate. Nick hits Penta back and TOSSES Penta off onto Fenix and Omega! Pac and Matt brawl at center stage while Nick LEAPS to AX HANDLE Penta back down! Matt KICKS Pac towards that side of the stage, reels him in, but Pac blocks the suplex. Matt keeps trying but Pac throws body shots. Matt throws those shots back, then punches away on Pac’s forehead!

Matt gets space, runs but Pac BOOTS him away! Then Pac says what the hell, and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS onto Nick, Omega and the Lucha Brothers!! Death Triangle then drags Nick and Omega up, but Matt SUPER CROSSBODIES them all down! Omega helps Matt up and the Elite drag Death Triangle up. The brawling continues, going back to the ramp and then to ringside. Omega sends Penta into railing while Nick sends Pac into the apron. Fenix whips but Matt reverses to send Fenix into barriers! Matt mocks Fenix’s pain then kicks him down! Matt then brings Fenix around to have him join the others ringside.

Dynamite returns to single picture, Brandon Cutler is vlogging this for The Elite as they set up Death Triangle. They all put one out, but the ref wants this to finally get in the ring. Omega says fine, and he puts Penta in the ring. The bell finally sounds and NOW this is a match! Then Omega kicks Penta out of the ring, the Bucks DOUBLE APRON POWERBOMB Fenix and Pac! Omega then brings Penta around, but Penta fights that bomb off to CHOP Omega! And CHOP Matt! And tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER Nick! Omega rushes back in, but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up with Penta as he shouts, “CERO! MIEDO!”

But then Penta moves, Matt WRECKS the ref with that wrecking ball dropkick!! And Alex Abrahantes sneaks a bell hammer to Penta! Penta hurries, hiding that hammer in his waistband. Penta then sets that down in a corner, and builds speed to FLY! Direct hit on The Elite! Penta puts Omega in, grabs said hammer, and fans are torn! Fenix gets in and he tells Penta NO! They’ve already done this enough for his liking! Penta tells him to shut up and just watch! But then Fenix grabs the hammer from Penta! V-TRIGGER hits Fenix!! Fenix flops out of the ring, Penta kicks Omega and tucks! But Omega slips out, the Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK Penta!

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

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

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

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

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

Pac eggs the fans on, taunts the Bucks, but he turns around into a CHOP from Omega! Omega CHOPS but Pac kicks out a leg to BOOT Omega down! Pac then BOOTS Nick down for good measure! Pac kicks Omega around, taunts him, then ROCKS him! Omega ROCKS Pac back! Pac ROCKS Omega, Omega ROCKS Pac, and they go back and forth! Pac fires off a flurry and Omega wobbles! Pac pushes Omega around, Omega throws body shots but they’re a bit weak. Dynamite returns to single picture as Pac eggs Omega on. Omega fires stronger body shots now, so Pac SOBATS! Pac runs, but into a V-TRIGGER!

Pac wobbles against ropes, Omega runs in but Pac dodges to SNAP GERMAN! But Omega is up to LARIAT Pac down! Fans are thunderous and their teams are chomping at the bit! Omega and Pac crawl, reach out, hot tags to Fenix and Nick! They DOUBLE LARIAT, and again, then Fenix shoves, but Nick dodges the rolling sobat! Nick runs in, whips Fenix, but Fenix tiger feint rewinds! Nick ducks the heel kick to SUPERKICK! But Fenix kips up, only for Nick to block that superkick to SCREW HIGH KICK!

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

Winners: The Elite, by pinfall (the series is now 2-1, in favor of Death Triangle)

FINALLY, The Elite score one on Death Triangle! But they’ve still got a long way to go in this Best of 7! Omega gets the mic to say, “There was never gonna be a sweep, as long as The Cleaner’s in town. We’re bringing this back, it’s gonna be a reverse sweep. And boy, this is the first time in awhile I’ve been able to close a show. So without any further adieu, I must bid you all a good bye, mwah! And good night, BANG! Now play that song again, would ya?” Fans sing Carry On again as Dynamite goes off the air. Will The Elite come back from being down two to win this in six? Or will Winter is Coming cool them off so that Death Triangle can get hot again?


My Thoughts:

Great Dynamite here to pave more of the road for Winter is Coming. For one, a very creative change to the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal since the current ringbearer is also the current AEW World Champion. I had a feeling Starks would want in on that on top of being #1 contender to the world title. Starks squashed Daivari, he really should win the battle royal so he can make Winter is Coming a Winner Takes All situation. At the same time, that does seem a shame to have Starks lose both prizes, so maybe Starks calls for a double header? He may not win the belt but he can win the ring and take MJF’s ace in the hole.

And speaking of the battle royal, I do like that Ethan wants to force Hardy to help him, but I bet Hardy finds a way to mess that up for him. Then maybe that starts things towards Hardy liberating himself and Private Party from The Firm. #HardyParty has been building up wins on Dark and Elevation, they could be Trios contenders on the other side of Elite VS Death Triangle, and that could be all the more reason The Firm will want to keep them under contract as long as possible.

Great opening segment from Moxley and the surprise return of Hangman! Of course it turns into a brawl that happens again backstage, and that will definitely be a match for Winter is Coming. And I think we will get the proper finish there we were meant to see in the title match. Amazing first match of the night in Bryan VS Dax tonight. Dax has definitely proven himself as a great wrestler, no matter what division we’re talking about. He loves being a tag guy with Cash, but maybe before calling it a day, Dax will win a midcard title. Perhaps the All-Atlantic Championship since Cassidy loves putting that thing up.

QT and Cassidy had a hilarious little promo to set up a match for Rampage, but a Lumberjack Match is just tailor made for the House of Black showing up and wrecking everyone ringside. I’m pretty sure Cassidy retains the title either way, and he’ll likely defend it against Malakai 1v1. Acclaimed have a good promo to set up a tag title match, but I don’t see FTR stepping up to them on a Rampage. It’ll probably be whoever is second on the contender’s list. And whichever that team is, they’re losing to The Acclaimed. FTR and Gunn Sons have to set up something for Final Battle, it’s what makes sense.

Speaking of other things that were set up for Final Battle and that make sense, great sit-down interview promo from JAS and BCC, especially with Claudio being fed up with the constant interviews. Hager bringing out a second purple bucket hat is hilarious, too. Hager & Garcia VS Claudio & Yuta will be a great tag match, Garcia VS Yuta will be a great Pure title match since we’ve seen it a couple times already. But I cannot be sure where the titles go. Of the two, I see Garcia losing, but then that means Claudio will be forced to sports entertain. A part of me would love seeing what happens with that, though.

The celebration for The Baddies wasn’t much of a celebration, and they didn’t even get to have the clearly red velvet cake. But Jade really amped up her arrogance saying Jade is AEW. I almost thought this was the moment she turned off Velvet and Leila for good, but guess not. And Bow Wow either has a proxy to dethrone Jade, or he is such a distraction that Jade loses. I can’t be sure who Bow Wow introduces in the first idea, while that second idea feels a bit cheap. I suppose it does keep Jade strong in her first loss ever, but Jade is so good as a character that she deserves to be beat by someone straight up so there’s no excuse.

Good match for Willow VS Anna and a very good win for Willow. But since she’s lost multiple times to Jade, she probably has to wait until Jade loses it so she can go after the new champ. And a great return for Ruby in her hometown, she and Willow can both build momentum taking the fight to TayJay. Good promo from Hayter and Britt to keep the “hate-on” for Saraya. Nice return of Technique by Taz, and I really liked the orange filter. No idea who is next for Hook, or who dethrones him, but Hook is finally facing people that challenge him, so that’s good.

Another great vignette for Hobbs. He really should be TNT Champion, but it is nice to get some real depth for his character. He’ll definitely be the next TNT Champion after Wardlow VS Joe. Joe VS Fox was a great match, too, and it’s great for Fox to be somewhere higher profile. MJF continues to be great on the mic, but he should be pissed at whoever made that belt for him. The Big Burberry Belt just looks like a Big Brown Belt because of how muted those colors ended up on the leather. But you do have to appreciate MJF has picked up the mantle of “AEW’s HHH Parody” with Cody Rhodes in WWE.

And just as things were starting to drag on, MJF turns it all around with that sucker punch to Regal! Bryan was devastated, but he’ll surely return with rage, wanting after MJF, and I wonder if Tony Khan already shoots down MJF’s “PPVs only” stipulation by making MJF face Bryan at like Holiday Bash or New Year’s Smash to see if MJF even makes it to 2023 as champion. Also, lots of people are talking about Regal going back to WWE but not going back to WWE, I don’t know which will happen, but this is of course a way to write him off for a moment and give him a great return moment to screw MJF over.

And lastly, what a great main event for the trios titles. I feel like half of the segment wasn’t even officially a match. These two teams keep busting out great stuff, and the Death Triangle story with the hammer continues. It more or less cost them tonight, but the Elite had to get on the board somehow. They take a week off from this series next week to come back at Winter is Coming, but I bet there will be a promo where Fenix argues with Penta about the hammer. This is all leading to The Elite getting the belts at the end of the series, and then Death Triangle might fall apart. I don’t really want that, the Trios Division needs trios as great as them, but if even The Dark Order can fall apart, then any trio can.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (11/29/22)

Newark gets Dark!

Published

Will Newark APPRECIATE Garcia, Menard & Parker?

AEW moves on from Thanksgiving and prepares for December! Winter is Coming, but who will be primed for golden opportunities?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The Factory VS Justin Corino, Ryan Mooney & Steve Josifi; The Factory wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Chris Wylde; Clayton wins.
  • Hikaru Shida w/ Hagane Shinno VS Layla Luciano; Shida wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Tracy Williams, LSG and Jack Tomlinson; The JAS wins.
  • Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tony Deppen; Cage wins.
  • Angelico VS Hagane Shinno; Angelico wins.
  • Emi Sakura w/ Baliyan Akki VS Tiara James; Sakura wins.
  • Six Man Tag: Hardy Party VS The Wingmen; Hardy Party wins.

QUICK NOTES

Hikaru Shida bringing along Hagane Shinno (formerly known as Madoka) is interesting. More Japanese promotions seem to be willing to let talent work with AEW, and that of course helps AEW get recognition internationally, and helps those promotions get recognition in the USA. Shinno will definitely get a win off Angelico, but AEW’s already such a full roster, who knows if Shinno will see any TV time.

Good to see the Wingmen together again, even if it’s to lose to Hardy Party. But even the Trios Division needs its lower midcard, and that is where The Wingmen will be. Matt Hardy & Private Party might end up becoming The Firm’s Trios Championship contenders if they keep building up wins on AEW YouTube. They could give whoever comes out of the Best of 7 Series a great match, and we could see a lot of overbooked, “internal conflict” of whether Hardy Party is Face or Heel, same as we’re seeing with Death Triangle always resorting to the hammer.

UPDATE: Welp, didn’t think Angelico would win but he did. I guess not ever new star that comes into AEW can just get a free win.
