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?

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!

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!

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!

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

It’s the Double or Nothing Buy-In!
Join Renee Paquette, Paul “Big Show” Wight, Stokely Hathaway and Kazeem Famuyide in discussing, analyzing and predicting everything tonight on this high stakes night for AEW! Oh, and RJ City is backstage on the red carpet.
Jim Ross interviews Don Callis.
Watch the full version here. Good ol’ JR asked Don, “How do you want this whole saga to conclude?” Don says he has done the hardest thing that a parent or family member could do. It was a cancer eating away with him, and what do you do with a cancer? You cut it out. And Don wants Kenny Omega to know, he hasn’t even started cutting yet. What more can Don possibly do to Kenny Omega after betraying him?
RJ City interviews Arn Anderson.
RJ is intimidated by The Enforcer, and he asks that in tonight’s TNT Championship match, Wardlow’s title will be hanging from the rafters because he got goaded into a ladder match. It feels like they’re playing into Christian Cage’s hands, what is the plan to win? Arn asks, “What makes you think anybody got goaded into their hands?” Arn reminds us that he and Wardlow are playing chess to Christian’s checkers, and they were the ones goading Christian into a match. Does RJ know how heavy a 10 foot ladder is? Arn sure doesn’t see Christian carrying one around much. But he does see Wardlow having yet to unleash what we’re about to see tonight, “in a town that’s up all night long.”
This isn’t them playing around, they’re getting down to business. And Wardlow’s going off tonight. RJ asks Arn if he’s packing heat tonight. Arn chuckles. Ask your mama. “My new step-father, Arn Anderson. Back to you, Renee.” Will the Maestro of Mayhem conduct the most memorable Powerbomb Symphony of all time?

And this will round up in Calgary at “the greatest outdoor show on earth,” the Calgary Stampede, July 15th! Make sure to bring your cowboy hats, pardners!

The Four Young Pillars of AEW collide in a battle the Devil of AEW tried to avoid with everything he had! He tried to buy the Spanish God, he tried to turn Tarzan Life, and he tried to get inside The Relentless One’s head, but it all backfired! Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s reign of terror come to an end? Or is there one last trick up his sleeve?
Fans sing along with Jungle Boy’s song, and JB even gets a little pyro. For Sammy Guevara, he ditches the DBZ tron to a degree, and he brings out his Brazilian Goddess, Tay Melo. They have cue cards? “It’s time for the big match. But first… We have big news to share.” Fans like the sound of that! “We are having a baby!” Fans LOVE the sound of that! Win or lose here, Sammy’s already living the dream, but can he add even more dreams-come-true to it?
For Darby’s entrance, he has a video. A Las Vegas wedding, with an Elvis impersonator presiding, and “MJF” waiting for his bride. But instead, in walks Darby! He JAMS MJF with the board, has Elvis hold the board, then he rains down fists on MJF while Elvis swaggers on the board. Darby gets the duct tape and he wants “The King” to help him “dispose” of MJF. Alright, alright, it’s just business. Elvis will do it. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Darby comes in wearing an Elvis jumpsuit!
And of course, last but certainly the worst, the lights go down with an ominous orchestral version of his song playing. A spotlight appears, and the Devil of AEW descends on a throne.

The BCC hoists Yuta up onto their shoulders since he got the win, is their group only stronger now? Is this going to be the end of The Elite?
A mostly great show, but AEW is starting to become more flash than substance. I’ll skip ahead to the TBS Championship, which as far as Jade VS Taya goes, was really good stuff. I didn’t like that Jade won to get to 60-0 because then we all think, “Who’s supposed to beat her now? Why was Taya brought in if she was gonna go 0-2?” And then look, oh! Kris Statlander is back, but she’s getting a title shot now because Sterling and Jade are so arrogant, and that’s how the streak ends. 60-1, but in a rather confusing way.
Though I suppose, as I’ve said leading up to this, there have been any number of confusing moves in other story builds. The Firm story, the Starks VS BCG story and the Swerve VS Keith story all feel disjointed, disorganized, and that is disappointing. The Six Man Tag was of course a Buy-In match, but surprisingly it was the only Buy-In match. Maybe that’s a good thing, because I don’t think I could’ve taken 12+ matches. But of course, this story continues with Matt Hardy now in charge of Ethan Page as karma for before.
The International title Blackjack Battle Royal was itself a lot of fun because AEW does good battle royals, and I suppose there is something to be said for putting in many stories into one match. But a battle royal for a singles title is not how to add to those stories. Obviously nothing is over between Starks and the Bullet Club Gold, and obviously nothing is over between Swerve and Keith. And I’m actually disappointed Orange Cassidy won, I thought this was a great way to have him lose in a protected way to then try for some other title now. Or at least have someone show up after who would get in his face to set up a feud. Didn’t Team QTV say on a QTV that they were supposed to be in this? Where the hell were they, Tony Khan?
I still liked what we got in the Unsanctioned Match, though I’m rather surprised it was second. I do appreciate that there was still stuff from Britt and Saraya, it’d be worse if there wasn’t anything, but then it kinda muddies things later when Britt and Saraya get at each other during Storm VS Hayter. And for an Unsanctioned Match, this actually felt like the tamest one AEW has done. I suppose part of that comes from Jericho being a bit up there in years and Cole still needing to be careful coming back from concussion, but it didn’t feel near as vicious as Cole and Jericho was hyping this up to be. If only there wasn’t all the drama and burned bridges, because this is where reDRagon (mostly Fish) could’ve returned to AEW to help against the JAS and truly reunite the Undisputed.
While bringing up Storm VS Hayter, that was all put together well and how it should have been done, in a vacuum. The Outcasts of course help Storm in, and Britt & Shida do their best to fight the Outcasts off, but it wasn’t going to be enough, Storm wins. Hayter’s shoulder, whether really hurt or just kayfabe hurt, will get her time off now, and maybe Shida keeps the fight against the Outcasts going. But we already got some Britt and Saraya scrapping, so it lessens the impact in this segment. A Mixed Tag of Cole & Britt VS Jericho & Saraya is an interesting move, too, but maybe this is all meant to make up for not having other pieces available.
Great stuff out of the tag title match. Mark did great as the ref, Karen was just getting nuclear heat, and all the action was good itself. Great use of ref bump here, and of course Jarrett lost his cool with Mark, they’re not the close friends in the group. Great win for FTR that way, and mostly great that Triple J didn’t win, on to some other team. Though, the confusing booking returns as FTR are the ones saving Starks from The BCG when they weren’t in the battle royal. It’d make more sense if it was the Lucha Brothers, cuz I’d love to see White & Juice go for the ROH tag titles. But I guess this is to say BCG will go after the AEW tag titles now? Hmm…
I appreciate them doing the “opening ceremony” for the Owen Hart Cup here, but it didn’t feel like a ceremony, just felt like an announcement promo from Martha Hart. And kind of cringe at that. But this will all be a great opportunity for several men and women in the midcard, though I hope something more happens after the tournament as opposed to last year where it was nice to see Britt & Cole as the Queen and King of Hart since they are also a couple. Really wild ladder match for the TNT title, and that was really risky stuff Wardlow was doing. Wardlow retaining is fine, since it would’ve just been Luchasaurus helping Christian win. Maybe now Luchasaurus gets his match with Wardlow as we were all expecting.
Great Open House match for the trios titles, and Caster had a great rap, but this all felt too soon to mean anything. As soon as The Acclaimed & Billy won that trios battle royal, they should’ve been calling out the House, but because the Open House Rules were something unique, that had to be built, too. Which makes me think they could’ve/should’ve introduced those rules sooner. I guess we can file this as another disjointed and disappointing build from Tony Khan. And I have no idea where Acclaimed & Billy go from here, other than they try again and then actually come up with a crazy rule under Dealer’s Choice. But even then, they’ll look silly for not just trying that here.
And finally, the matches that were actually awesome, AEW’s “Double Main Event” which makes me think WWE’s “Triple Main Event” was just them trying to preemptively one-up Double or Nothing. Between the two matches, the title match was the better match. And even comparing Anarchy in the Arena II to the original, last year’s felt so much wilder. All four men in the Fatal 4 Way proved that they should be seen as the Four Young Pillars, and I loved the creativity in all of it. I figured MJF would find a way, and now maybe he has a 1v1 story with one of the three. Maybe we even get all three in a series, one of them closing out the year with MJF at like Winter is Coming.
And as I said, Anarchy in the Arena II wasn’t as hectic as last year’s, though I suppose still just as violent. And I do appreciate that Wild Thing constantly going on until a certain point is the tradition. Great reveal that Hangman’s eye was 100%, great Captain America motif from Omega with his ring gear and the trash can lid shield, but of course Callis gets involved. Quite the twist that Konosuke returns to help the BCC, though that did feel possible leading into this. It wasn’t really clear if Callis and Konosuke are starting their own group or are now BCC, they didn’t really celebrate all together, they were all just celebrating in the same area. I wish they were a bit more clear. Maybe Konosuke did it not for Callis but for Bryan, that’d be better continuity.
My Score: 8.8/10

Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but then LFI brawls with The Acclaimed on the outside!

Ethan isn’t done, either, he wants a mic! A mic is given, and Ethan says he wants to talk to the “bozos” in Vegas. “Shut up, you basic ass civilians.” Ethan doesn’t care if anyone here was watching, he wants The Hardy Boyz to have been watching. Because if so, they just saw what a REAL three man crew, a REAL trio, can do! A REAL team! And on Sunday, guess we won’t find out what the Hardy Party can do because these three took out Kassidy! FOR GOOD! So it is clearly going to be 3v2 now. But wait, here come the Hardy Boys! Fans fire up as Matt & Jeff are on stage, and Jeff has a mic of his own!
Jeff says, “The Ass Boys are looking good out here on Rampage with a boost of ego. This Sunday, the Egos will be DELETED, compliments of us.” Matt tells Ethan that his contract and his ass will belong to Matt now! If they have to fight 3v2, they’re not afraid to. Because to them, fear is only a four letter word. Wait, Kassidy is here with a neck brace? Ethan mocks them to come on down, and Austin mocks the moaning and squealing. Kassidy says unfortunately, the doctor did not clear him to compete. However… He found a replacement. It’s HOOK!! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil did help Hardy Party in the Firm Deletion, so he has returned to help them again!
Fans fire up as Hook follows the Hardy Boys to the ring, and that sends Ethan & The Gunns running! Will the remnants of The Firm be torn down once and for all now that Kassidy has #SentHook?
Backstage interview with Naturally Limitless.
Lexi Nair is with Keith Lee & Dustin Rhodes, and we all know things have been heating up between them and the now Mogul Embassy. It has just been announced that Swerve Strickland and Brian Cage are both in the Blackjack Battle Royal, as are they. What does that mean for them? Imagine that, huh? Swerve and Cage in a battle royal. So after Keith & Dustin eliminate them, because this is all for the International Championship, then Keith & Dustin can just eliminate everyone else and then make a decision on who wins it all. Dustin is confident he and Keith can come to an agreement.
But Swerve and Cage, you know it’s heated. You know it’s coming. Be ready. Keith adds that if the Embassy is in this, then he can’t wait! Keith heads out, and Dustin hopes Swerve saw that. Will nothing stop Keith & Dustin settling things with Swerve’s House this Sunday?
Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!
While The Doctor & The Full Metal Warrior couldn’t put away the Outcasts, they are sticking together in this ongoing battle of AEW Homegrowns and everyone else. Will these former AEW Women’s World Champions prove they are still a formidable team? Or will the Vicious Vixens be a major problem for them?
The teams sort out, Shida starts against Nyla as no strangers to each other. They circle, and then Nyla kicks low and CLUBS Shida on the back! Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, then tags in Marina. The Vixens double whip, but Shida ducks the double ax handles to shove Marina into Nyla, and then shove them both into a corner! Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE them both down! Shida then snap suplexes Marina onto Nyla! Fans fire up with Shida and she points to Britt. Fans fire up as Shida tags in Britt! Britt fires off on Marina, but Marina shoves her back.

Britt brings Marin up, ROCKS her, and then whips her to ropes. Marina reverses to CHOP and BOOT Britt down! Marina scowls, storms up on Britt, and tags in Nyla. The Vixens mug Britt in the corner, and Nyla CHOKES Britt on the ropes! Nyla laughs right into the corner camera before she lets go at 4. Fans boo as Nyla stands on Britt and Rampage goes picture in picture.
Nyla lets off as the ref counts, and then Nyla drags Britt up. Nyla scoops Britt to SLAM her down, then she soaks up the heat. Nyla stomps Britt, drags her up, and scoops to SLAM her again!

Marina and Shida shout at each other, and Nyla brings Britt up to CLUB her on the back. Nyla bumps Britt off buckles, tags Marina, and Marina fires off body shots! Marina kicks Britt’s legs out, then tags Nyla back in. The Vixens drag Britt up to whip her hard into the corner!
Marina whips Nyla in to SPLASH! And then Nyla feeds Britt to Marina’s BOOT! Marina taunts Shida, clamps onto Britt with an armlock, and she grinds Britt down. Britt endures, reaches out, throws slapping hands on Marina, but then Marina whips Britt back into the corner! Nyla tags back in, the Vixens mug Britt more, and Nyla RAMS Britt in the corner! And again! And again! Nyla sits Britt down, digs her boot in, and mockingly counts along with the ref before letting off at 4. Nyla snapmares, clamps claws onto Britt’s shoulders, and Rampage goes to break.
Rampage returns and the Vixens double whip Britt into their corner again! Marina sends Nyla in but Britt avoids the splash! Marina hurries after Britt, misses, and she stubs a toe on the ropes! Gotta be careful going barefoot! Hot tag to Shida! Shida dodges Marina, ENZIGURIS her down, then rolls to SHOTEI Nyla! Marina throws a forearm, but Shida throws a flurry in return! Fans fire up with Shida as she just hammers away on Marina! Marina staggers around, swings, but Shida DECKS her! Shida puts Marina in a corner, climbs up, and Shida rains down more fists! The fans count along and Shida gets all the way to TEN!

Cover, but Nyla scoop SLAMS Shida onto it! Nyla is mad and she hoists Britt up. Nyla hangs Britt out to dry, then goes to the corner! Nyla climbs, aims, but Shida saves her from the knee! Nyla runs back in, but Shida & Britt dump her out hard! And then a METEORA to the floor wipes the Native Beast out! Britt has a glove, she spells it out, “D! M! D!” But Marina CHOPS, KICKS and KICKS! But Britt dodges to SUPERKICK!

They went after her backstage! Shida & Britt hurry to the back but the damage has been done! Will Hayter be able to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship after this?
Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.
“Tonight, ahead of the Blackjack Battle Royal, Lee Moriarty & Big Bill take on Best Friends. Let’s see which team comes out on top. Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!” Will Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor have the hot hand going into the International Championship match? Or will #TAIGASTYLE and the human skyscraper make bust them already?
Best Friends VS Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey!
As Best Friends make their entrance, we see their best amigos, Bandido, Komander and even The Lucha Brothers all watching from the front row. They’re all going to be in the battle royal, too, and well, look at that. It would seem The Superbad Squad and the Varsity Athletes had the same idea. They’re all together in one section watching this in person, too.
Anyway, the teams sort out and Moriarty starts against Chuck. They circle, Chuck does some drop steps, and then the two tie up. Chuck waistlocks, wrenches an arm, then wristlocks. Moriarty works on the escape, but Chuck cranks the wrist. Moriarty stomps a leg, rolls and kips up to then arm-drag free. Chuck backs off and Moriarty does his dance. Fans boo but Bill cheers. Trent tags in and he circles with Moriarty. They tie up, Moriarty gets around to a waistlock but Trent switches. Moriarty switches back, Trent switches again, but Moriarty elbows free and hits a headlock takeover.
Trent headscissors, Moriarty kips free and hits another headlock takeover. Trent headscissors again, Moriarty kips free again, and fans cheer the standoff. Moriarty does his dance and fans boo again. Moriarty claps at Trent, but Trent offers a handshake. Moriarty accepts, but he sees the cheap shot coming! Trent laughs it off, but Moriarty rakes the eyes! Moriarty CHOPS Trent to ropes, whips him, but Trent reverses. Chuck hits Moriarty, but Moriarty DECKS him! But then Trent CLOBBERS Moriarty! Fans fire up with Trent and he brings Moriarty up. Trent CHOPS Moriarty down, then tags Chuck.
Best Friends double whip Moriarty to a corner, then Trent sends Chuck in to clothesline! Trent runs in to ELBOW! Trent brings Moriarty out, Best Friends double suplex! They both flex on Morrissey, then SLAM Moriarty down! Fans cheer but Big Bill runs in! He breaks the double clothesline to DOUBLE LARIAT the Best Friends! Bill clotheslines Chuck out, then he whips Trent corner to corner hard! Trent tumbles up and out and Bill paces. Best Friends are down while Rampage goes picture in picture.
Bill goes out to stomp Trent around, then stalks Trent. Bill rains down fists on Trent, but Chuck is after Moriarty! Chuck whips but Moriarty reverses to send Chuck into railing! Bill drags Trent up, ROCKS him, and Moriarty puts Chuck in the ring. Moriarty drags Chuck up, UPPERCUTS him, and then CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and he distracts the ref so Bill can BOOT Chuck down! Moriarty covers, TWO! Moriarty drags Chuck up, the Varsity Athletes and Superbad Squad aren’t impressed with any of this, but Bill tags in. Bill throws body shots, the Lucha Brothers cheer Chuck on.
Bill digs his boot in, but steps off as the ref counts, and Moriarty CHOKES Chuck now! Trent protests but Moriarty scurries away. Bill soaks up the heat from Vegas, then he DECKS Chuck! Bill drags Chuck up, ROCKS him again, then tags in Moriarty. They mug Chuck, stomp away on him, and the ref counts. Moriarty lets off and roars, then goes back to Chuck. Moriarty drags Chuck up to wrench an arm into an ELBOW BREAKER! Moriarty snapmares Chuck, wraps him up, but Chuck fights the straitjacket. Moriarty turns Chuck over and hammerlocks an arm, to then SNAP LOCK it!
Chuck endures, even as Moriarty bridges over! Moriarty then goes back around to SNAP LOCK the arm again! Chuck endures, Moriarty bridges again, and then SNAP LOCKS a third time! Chuck manages to sit up, he throws some elbows, and he gets free! Only for Moriarty to DECK Trent with a cheap shot! Moriarty CLUBS Chuck, brings him around and tosses him out! The ref is distracted with Moriarty and Bill goes over to run at Chuck. But Chuck dodges, and the big boot from Big Bill gets stuck on the railing! That’s not good for Little Willie! Rampage returns to single picture and Moriarty rushes out! Chuck dodges and slides in, to hot tag Trent!
Fans fire up as Trent gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Moriarty! And then GERMAN SUPLEX again! And HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX! Fans fire up while Moriarty flops out of the ring. Trent builds speed to DIVE, but into Big Bill’s big hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM!! The Lucha Amigos all wince from that and Trent flops to the floor. Bill drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then he tags in. Bill runs in at Trent, but Trent dodges the splash! Bill hits buckles and maybe even post! Trent half nelsons but Bill elbows free, only to get a SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE! Trent then reels Bill back in, SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF!!
Fans fire up with Best Friends, and Best Friends HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Trent then drags Bill up while Chuck climbs the corner. But Moriarty CLUBS Chuck down off the corner! Bill turns Alabama Lift into Canadian Rack, but Trent slips free! Trent runs, but into the BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!! Fans fire up from that feat of strength, and Bill tags Moriarty. They haul Trent up, Bill full nelsons and Moriarty gets the legs, NARAKU!! Cover off the full nelson swinging bomb, but Chuck breaks it!! Fans fire up as Best Friends survive! Moriarty drags Chuck up to TOSS him! Tag to Bill and they go back to Trent.
Moriarty wants Bill to go to the corner and Bill climbs up. Moriarty brings Trent up, but Chuck anchors Bill! Trent sends Moriarty into Little Willie! Moriarty flops out of the ring, and Best Friends fire off hands on Bill! They adjust Bill’s position up there, then climb up after him! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX!! Trent crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Bill survives and the Varsity Athletes are amused. The Lucha Amigos rally for Trent & Chuck as Chuck reels Bill in. But Moriarty slides in to claw Chuck’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Trent whips Moriarty. Moriarty reverses to send Trent out and then BOOT him down!
But Chuck kicks Moriarty and reels him in! AWFUL WAFFLE!! But Bill BOOTS Chuck!! Bill choke grips, and SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAMS him!! Cover, Bill & Moriarty win!
Winners: Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall
Moriarty & Morrissey stand tall, but this was in tag team action. The battle royal is every man for himself, will it come down to these two at the end? Wait, they go up to the Lucha Amigos to talk some trash, and Bandido gives thumbs down right to their faces. Bill shoves Bandido, so Bandido throws a forearm! Moriarty goes after Bandido, the Lucha Brothers go after Moriarty and Bill! And then Butcher, Blade, Kip, and the Varsity Athletes join in! People are sent into railing, and the Varsity Athletes mug Trent in the ring! Sterling tells them to keep going, but here comes ORANGE CASSIDY himself!
The Freshly Squeezed International Champion is here, he runs the Varsity Athletes off swinging his backpack, but the other entrants are still brawling it out on the outside! Cassidy shows off the prize, but here comes THE MACHINE! Brian Cage storms his way down to the ring, but here comes KEITH LEE! He and Dustin Rhodes storm their way down to the ring, and they add a lot of beef to the brawl! Naturally Limitless mugs Cage, the Varsity Athletes still mug Trent, and Cassidy just looks around at the chaos. But then “Whose House? SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve is here in person, but he doesn’t seem in any rush to save Cage.
Keith eyes Swerve from the ramp, but Dustin still throws hands on Cage. Keith storms up after Swerve, but Swerve laughs and dares him to follow backstage. Cage turns things around on Dustin, all the other teams keep beating on each other! If this is how it is to close Rampage, how much wilder will it get when the title is on the line?
A really good Rampage for the go-home of Double or Nothing, and obviously since we didn’t see the traditional pre-battle-royal brawl on Dynamite, of course we saw it here to close the show. The main event tag match was great stuff, and what a great surprise that Best Friends didn’t win! The go-home math now says Moriarty & Morrissey aren’t winning, though I would love if one of them did have a belt. Honestly, they’re trying to make it seem like Cassidy is going to retain the title, since almost everyone else in the battle royal either A) has a feud going already or B) just isn’t at midcard champion level yet.
For example, Swerve & Cage VS Keith & Dustin. We should’ve had some kind of blowoff way sooner than this, maybe on a themed Dynamite and in a No Disqualification style match. Same thing for Ricky Starks, Jay White and Juice Robinson being in this match. But that problem goes all the way back to how AEW handled Starks VS Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society. In the end, if anyone new is winning this belt, I would actually want it to be Komander. Komander is still with AAA, so I would love to see him do a tour of Mexico with the title the same way Pac toured the UK with it to establish that first reign.
Decent squash match from Ethan & Gunns beating those jobbers we never even got the names of, and great promo with Hardy Party to establish a new take on the Six Man Tag. Hook joining is a natural choice given he helped the Hardys against The Firm before, but something about this feels like the same backwards pacing as we’ve seen with Starks. The Hardys should’ve turned the contract control tables on Ethan way before The Firm Deletion, with The Firm Deletion being the blowoff that sends the Hardys and Ethan in different directions. Hook & Hardys will definitely win, and we will get who knows how many months of shenanigans where Matt orders Ethan around.
Really good women’s tag match with Britt & Shida winning, even though there’s nothing to win for women’s tag teams in AEW anymore/right now. But of course The Outcasts attack Hayter 3v1 to put her on the defensive. This go-home math would mean Hayter overcomes the odds because she has Britt & Shida helping against Saraya & Ruby. Personally, I’m hoping Taya Valkyrie beats Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship, so that Jade can then jump up to the world title scene and really just tear into all six ladies. What bigger way to lead into AEW Collision, AEW All In and AEW All Out this Summer than with Jade finally being more than the midcard champion?
And great stuff at the beginning with The Acclaimed VS LFI. I just knew Acclaimed would find a way to win and then call out The House of Black. Apparently House of Black issued an open challenge for Double or Nothing, so The Acclaimed has answered it already. I am curious to know what stipulation The Acclaimed will bring to the Open House, but I really can’t be sure who wins. The House of Black have made the Trios Championships unique from the other titles, and have a growing popularity with the fans, but The Acclaimed are also really popular. This is like how AEW booked themselves into a corner with Hobbs VS Wardlow, and look where that’s gotten Hobbs.
My Score: 8.7/10
