Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS Penta El Zero M!

Fans are fired up already as Penta POSTS Cody! Penta gets a leg to KICK the thigh! Cody ROCKS Penta back, then throws Penta into railing! Cody gets back in the ring, Penta pursues and Penta KICKS the leg again! Penta rips Cody’s green shirt off, throws body shots, and CHOPS him! Fans fire up more with that one!

Penta wraps Cody’s arm around ropes, pulls on it, then lets off to CHOP! Cody eggs Penta on, Penta CHOPS! Cody kicks low, and GOURD BUSTERS! Cody sits Penta up to run, but Penta dodges, gets around and SLINGBLADES! Cover, TWO! Fans rally up as Cody sits up but Penta is on him at the ropes.

Penta whips, Cody reverses but Penta goes up and over to BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Penta wasn’t all that serious on the cover, but now he goes outside.

Penta sets up spare barriers, and even put on a St. Patrick’s Day hat. Penta KICKS Cody’s leg, fireman’s carries, but Cody slips off to BOOT Penta! Penta CLUBS Cody, puts him in the ring, and then climbs up. Cody intercepts with haymakers and elbows, then he climbs up to join Penta. Fans rally up as Cody SUPER STEINERS Penta! Fans are thunderous as Cody grits his teeth and stands back up. Penta KICKS from the mat! Cody falls to the apron, clutching the bad arm, and Penta goes out to SUPERKICK the shoulder!

How did Penta survive that one?!? Cody isn’t losing his cool, he just drags Penta up.

Penta SLAPS Cody! Cody kicks low, whips him to a corner and drags Penta out to SLAM a leg into the post! Now he might be losing his cool. Cody puts Penta back in, gets the leg, and steps through for the FIGURE FOUR! Penta endures, fans rally and duel, but Penta drags himself over to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Cody lets Penta free at 3. Fans are thunderous as they duel and Cody gets the legs again. Penta resists the Figure Four, drags Cody down, DARK ARMBAR!!! Cody clutches his arm, but he manages a sunset flip! CODY WINS!!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

Penta is pissed and he goes after Cody’s arm! Penta elbows away on the shoulder but Arn gets in! The Enforcer glares at Penta, Dustin Rhodes and even the Gunn Club get in, but Penta slips away. Will the Nightmare Family avenge Cody? Or will Penta make sure they all fear Cero Miedo?

Wait, only now does QT Marshall show up. Fans boo him for being so late to the rescue, and even the Nightmare Family is confused as to what took him so long. QT tries to claim he had headphones on so he couldn’t hear what was going on, but was it because he didn’t care?

 

Backstage interview with the Young Bucks.

The Death Triangle is coming for their titles but where is the champs’ focus? Well Rey Fenix beat Matt Jackson last week in singles competition, and sometime last year he beat Nick Jackson in singles competition. Luckily for the Bucks, these are tag team championships, and they’re the best damn team in pro-wrestling! But now Don Callis comes in and says that was great stuff, they almost sound like they believe it. What is he doing here? Well he was just worried about their dad, how he got hurt and they didn’t do a thing about it. Callis got them a shirt, “DO NOT SLAP LEG WHEN KICKING.”

The Bucks throw the shirt away and they point out Callis’ eye is actually okay. Oh, right, yes, Callis admits he was faking the black eye. He was never hit by the Bucks. But he wanted them to hit him! It would’ve hurt and put him in the hospital like their dad, but he wanted to see the NJPW Bucks who would just destroy their opponents. They basically founded this place, but what’s even elite about them anymore? Killing the Business is killing it, but the Bucks have kinda killed their own careers. Callis likes to take credit for things, but Kenny Omega barely even recognizes these two anymore.

Oh you mean the Kenny Omega Don Callis brainwashed and changed? What is he doing here?! Yes, Callis has changed Omega, because Omega is the GOD OF PRO-WRESTLING! Omega’s way up here while the Bucks are in the basement! Omega doesn’t recognize them because they’re not elite. They’re just another team with fancy tights living off a name. But before they get mad at Callis, he asks if they look in the mirror and see the same Bucks he saw back in NJPW. Callis may be many things, but is he right?

 

Jade Cargill VS Dani Jordyn!

The storm is back, ready to add to the big win she had during the “Crossroads” Dynamite. Will Jade make sure the Real Mean Girl doesn’t even think about making a page about her in the Burn Book?

The bell rings, Jade doesn’t take Dani serious but there are fans on Dani’s side. Jade flexes, Dani gets around her but Jade switches. Dani elbows out hard then runs, into a BOOT! Fans boo as Jade looms over Dani. Dani slowly gets up, fans rally but Jade drags her into a HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!! Jade kips up and says this can’t be the best they could give her. Jade drags Dani up, reels her back in, chicken wings for the JADED SLAM!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

Red Velvet is in the crowd of wrestlers, and Jade gets in her face about it! The others have to keep Velvet from mixing it up with Jade, but will Velvet get her chance at redemption? Or will Jade storm right past Velvet and go after the AEW Women’s World Championship?

 

MJF and HIS faction are here!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman leads Tully Blanchard, Shawn Spears, FTR and of course Wardlow to the ring but Tully has the mic. “It’s great being in the middle of this ring with this group of guys. Because one week ago, we stood in here with the greatest group AEW had, The Inner Circle.” Santana and Ortiz were cuffed! “Tough guy” Jake Hager was smashed with champagne! Sammy Guevara was wearing a chair, and their leader, the great Chris Jericho got hit by a baseball bat! That makes this group the baddest group in AEW now! When you’ve climbed the mountain and there’s nowhere else, you’re at the pinnacle of this sport, and that’s where this group is!

Tully was with the greatest group of guys 40 years ago, and he’ll finish his career with the greatest group of guys in wrestling. Mark his words! MJF takes the mic now and fans boo even harder. “I guess I’m Judas now.” MJF tells Jericho that pretending to like him was no walk in the park. Jericho could use some walks in the park, for that matter. It wasn’t so easy to be the most charismatic man in wrestling and take a second seat behind Jericho. MJF had to fall back as far as Jericho’s hairline! And it damn sure wasn’t easy separating Jericho from Sammy as far apart as Jericho’s pecs are.

But MJF did. He shucked, jived, did the song and dance, and pretended to love Jericho’s haha stupid BS!! “But it worked, didn’t it?” Jericho thought he had MJF under his wing when MJF was actually plucking Jericho’s feathers. Then the coup de grace that MJF tricked Jericho and every “disgusting, mouth breathing miscreant” in the audience into thinking MJF wanted to take over the Inner Circle. But in reality, it was an elaborate ruse so no one would see what was coming. Day one was to kill the Inner Circle from the inside. MJF wanted to defeat and end the strongest faction in all of AEW, and then on top of their ruins, build one even stronger. Boy has he ever!

Tully was right! Shocking, right? He’s only the greatest mind in wrestling ever! He called them the pinnacle because that is what they are! You may not like this line-up but you have to look at it! “War Dog” Wardlow, 278 pounds of sheer force and dominance! The best big man in pro-wrestling today! The best insurance policy, too. Fans taunt them with “You Guys Suck!” Then there’s #DoubleS, the Chair Man, Shawn Spears! A wrestler’s wrestler, a veteran’s veteran and a man who has been held down for far too long! Spears has always been a top guy, and he’ll prove it week in and week out! If you got a problem with that, take it up with him. You’ll eat your words, then eat a chair shot!

And speaking of top guys,  Cash Money, Dax the Ax, FTR! The only Grand Slam Tag Team Champions in pro-wrestling history! The greatest team on God’s green earth and they look good doing it. Then of course, there’s lil’ ol’ MJF! The one who’s been on national TV for one year and is the most talked about name in pro-wrestling today! The guy who both on the mic and in the ring is UNSTOPPABLE! And he’s only 24 years old. MJF is great now but like a fine wine, he’ll get better with age. He has 25+ years left and that must piss everyone off! Everyone knows that when MJF’s career is said and done, Jericho won’t be the GOAT. No, that spot is reserved for MJF!!

This is the Pinnacle, they’re a family, and they’ll be the backbone of AEW for years! They’ll take every great title there is to offer, “and as the Pinnacle, we will take what we want, when we want.” And right now, what they want is the Inner Circle’s locker room. But before taking that and everything Jericho holds near and dear, MJF will give him a heartwarming message. Let’s see if he can get this right. “I’m better than you, and you know it!!” Will the Pinnacle not only stand atop AEW, but the entire world of wrestling?

 

10 Man Tag: Jurassic Express & Bear Country VS Matt Hardy, Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade!

Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt team up with Boulder and Bronson to settle things with all of Big Money Matt’s growing empire. But with the new edge Hardy has given Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy, and the edge we’ve always seen in Andy William & Braxton Sutter, will the combined forces of dinosaurs and bears only be cut to shreds?

The teams sort out and Fun Sized calls out Big Money! Hardy steps up, Marko mocks him, and Hardy grabs Marko’s hair to KNEE him hard!

JB dropkicks Stunt and hardy down, and then all hell breaks loose! Everyone is brawling, Luchasaurus has Butcher, Boulder has Blade, everyone but Kassidy and Butcher are thrown out!

Blade hits JB, snapmares him then wraps on a chinlock. Blade grinds JB down but fans rally up. JB endures, fights up, fights out, but runs into a LARIAT!

Blade seethes as he looms over JB. Blade kicks at JB, brings him back around to cravat then CLUBS JB down. Blade scrapes his laces of JB’s face, then wraps on another chinlock to grind JB down. JB fights up again, fights back again, but Blade CLUBS him again. Blade drags JB up, inverted suplex to a fireman’s carry but JB fights out! Blade knees low, whips but JB rebound LARIATS! Both men are down, the ref starts a standing count, but both men crawl for their corners and AEW returns to single picture in time for hot tags to Kassidy and Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus rallies over Private Party, BOOTS Butcher then fires off hands on Private Party!

Luchasaurus BOOTS Quen, mule kicks Kassidy, then whips Kassidy for a squealing FLAPJACK! Quen runs, but gets a HUGE back drop! Blade runs in to be put in a corner for fast hands! And a GERMAN! Luchasaurus kips up and fans fire up! Luchasaurus drags Kassidy back up, scoops him, but Quen saves Kassidy. Private Party run, Luchasaurus handsprings to TAIL WHIP, ROUNDHOUSE, choke grip and CHOKE SLAM! STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, Butcher breaks it! Butcher drags Luchasaurus up but gets a HEADBUTT! Butcher comes back to CLOBBER Luchasaurus!! Stunt leaps to missile dropkick! Stunt kicks Butcher, goes back to his corner, and fans are thunderous!

Kassidy drags Luchasaurus up but Luchasaurus choke grips again! Hardy shouts orders, Kassidy throws hands but Luchasaurus tags- Bronson? No, he tagged in himself, to give Kassidy an EXPLODER! Luchasaurus says he wanted to tag someone else but the Bears argue with him! Stunt tags in and gets after Kassidy, but the wolves attack the bears and Luchasaurus! Butcher and Blade go after the Bears, Stunt DECKS Quen! Kassidy BOOTS Stunt! Kassidy drags Stunt up, tags Quen in, and Hardy gives them orders. They double whip Stunt to a corner, but Stunt elbows and boots back! Stunt hops up and double boots! But Hardy attacks at the corner! Quen goes up, GIN ‘N’ JUICE!!

Hardy tags in because he wants to top this off! He drags Stunt up, reels him in, TWIST OF FATE!! Cover, Hardy’s team wins!

Winners: Matt Hardy, Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade

Big Money Matt gets paid, and because his clients get paid, he gets paid more! Will this faction be a financial savior for Hardy while Hangman gets all his Q1 earnings?

 

Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston prepare backstage.

Kingston asks Moxley how he’s feeling, just as Moxley wants him to ask, so they’re clearly on the same page. Moxley doesn’t feel good, though. He’s not in a good mood. Not just because he got burned and lacerated, but then he got cuffed and beaten to a bloody pulp. Moxley should be on a beach somewhere, sipping a Mai Tai, but he’s going to war again because it’s time to take care of the real problem. Sometimes you have to step back, take a look, and fix the real problem. And they know what that real problem is, don’t they? The Good~ Brothers~! Everybody loves the Good Brothers, right? Not Moxley. At all. And not just because Moxley wasted money on Talknshopamania.

It’s because they’re cheap shot artists! Moxley turns around, there’s Gallows & Anderson. Turn around again, there’s Gallows & Anderson. No one wants to look at Gallows that much. Those dumb teeth and googly eyes, he’s like Forky from Toy Story! He’s one wiggly eyed dude. But then Karl Anderson, or Chad2Badd~! But he’s all gangster cuz of Bullet whatever. Kingston swears he saw the Too Sweet somewhere before, also on TNT, but like years ago. Who were those guys again? But anyway, Moxley is in pain so let’s get serious. They can joke and all that, but Good Brothers have been tag champions all over the world.

The thing is, this isn’t Japan. This isn’t the Impact Zone. No, this is their place. And let’s be honest, to get 50 Cent. You’ve never popped nothin’, never shot nothin’, so stop frontin’. Well, did Bullet Club actually shoot things? Can we even say that name on Dynamite? Forbidden door? Well going from 50 to Tupac, “You guys are cowards, and a coward dies a thousand deaths.” But the soldiers only die but once. See you out there. Will the Maniac and the Mad King crush the Biz Cliz so they can have a clear shot at The Cleaner?

 

Backstage interview with Christian Cage.

Dasha asks him the question everyone’s been wanting to ask: What brought him here to AEW? Christian says he’s going to go on a bit of a rant but he promises he’ll get to an answer. “There’s a term in the wrestling business for the type of wrestler that when they get in that ring on a nightly basis, no matter the situation, no matter the opponent, they bust their ass more than anybody else on the card. They’re called a ‘workhorse.'” And if you’ve ever been inside a pro-wrestling locker room, then you know Christian’s reputation. Moxley said it himself, he thought he knew wrestling until he got in the ring with Christian. Christian makes wrestlers level up.

But Christian’s not a workhorse. He is THE workhorse in pro-wrestling. If you’ve forgotten that, the second he gets in the ring in AEW, you’ll remember quick. And Christian realizes he might’ve rustled feathers. The young wrestlers think the old veteran is going to take some spots. He’ll put their minds at ease and say, “There’s only one spot that interests me, and it’s currently occupied by AEW World Heavyweight Champion, Kenny Omega.” Speaking of, Omega scooped Christian’s time. The champ can do what he wants, cool. But that means Christian got to meet Omega and basically tell him he’s on borrowed time.

Christian knows he needs to win, prove himself, but he promises to see Omega down the road. So now, why is Christian in AEW? “To cement my legacy.” He is going to put to action three simple words: Out work everyone. Will THE Workhorse, THE Captain Charisma, find a way to become THE challenger to the Best Bout Machine?

 

Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston VS The Good Brothers w/ Don Callis!

When push came to shove and lives were on the line, friendship was found again and now Maniac and Mad King look to take out the AEW World Champion’s cronies!

But wait, just as Kingston makes his entrance, the Good Brothers attack! They mug Kingston 2v1, just proving MOxley right about the cheap shot artist line!

Things head for the ring as Moxley throws Anderson into railing! Gallows uppercuts Moxley, and again, then Anderson throws Moxley into railing in return!

Anderson rains down more rights on Kingston, Gallows clubs and headbutts Moxley! Moxley gets up to fight back but he’s 2v1 again! The Good Brothers get Moxley up, MAGIC KILLER to the floor! They put Kingston in the ring, the bell finally sounds and Anderson rains down fists on Kingston’s head! Cover, ONE!! Kingston is tough but Anderson is after his eyes and nose!

AEW goes picture in picture as Gallows fish hooks Kingston’s face! Tag to Anderson, he digs his fingers into Kingston’s face!

Both men are down, Anderson gets over to tag Gallows. Gallows runs to BOOT Kingston down! Moxley returns to his corner but Gallows tags Anderson. Anderson covers, TWO! Anderson tries again, TWO! Kingston gets Anderson and rakes his eyes in return! Anderson stomps Kinston down, drags him to ropes and chokes him! The ref reprimands, Kingston BITES Anderson’s hand!

Anderson clubs Kingston, tags Gallows in and Gallows drags Kingston up, only for Kingston to pie face him! Gallows pie faces back, Kingston pie faces again, it’s a pie face fight! Gallows headbutts Kingston, but Kingston is still defiant as he stumbles about. Gallows runs into the corner, Kingston elbows him away! Gallows ROCKS Kingston with an uppercut, tag to Anderson, and Anderson digs his boot into Kingston again. Anderson stomps Kingston, taunts Moxley, then drags Kingston up by an ear. Anderson puts Kingston in the corner, rakes Kingston’s face, then tags Gallows. Gallows drags Kingston up to snampare and wrap on a chinlock.

Kingston endures again as AEW returns to single picture. Kingston throws body shots to get free, but Gallows knees low! Gallows whips Kingston corner to corner, runs in but Kingston boots him! Kingston hops up to leap, FLYING SHOULDER! Both men are down again and fans are fired up! Kingston and Gallows crawl to their corners, but Kingston is a bit disoriented! Anderson tags in and whips Kingston away, but Kingston reverses to hit an EXPLODER! Fans are thunderous as Kingston and Anderson are down again! Hot tag to Moxley!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

But Gallows CLOBBERS Moxley! Anderson stomps Moxley, Gallows chokes Moxley, then Anderson rains down rights! And now Kenny Omega walks out! And he has a chair! Omega takes his time strutting to the ring, and he sits the chair up. Callis takes Omega’s jacket off for him and Omega takes a seat. Kingston gets in to CLOBBER Omega! The Good Brothers go after Kingston and Omega stomps Kingston for that! Good Brothers get Kingston up for MAGIC KILLER! Omega digs his boot into Moxley’s head, then gets the chair back. Omega tells the Good Brothers to set Kingston up. They put the chair around Kingston’s leg and stomp Moxley to keep him down.

Moxley rises and he has the chair as a weapon!! Moxley swings and Omega runs away! Callis runs away even faster, he might be in the parking lot by now. Kingston demands the medics help him get into the ring with Moxley but they’re telling him that leg won’t let him. Will Moxley get revenge on Omega for this? Will the Bucks have their own score to settle with Omega and Callis?

 

AEW returns with Tony Schiavone on stage.

Even after Revolution’s incredible Street Fight, Darby Allin was able to successfully defend the AEW TNT Championship, but let’s welcome him and of course… IT’S STIIIING~! The snow, the crow and the Icon, but also the Relentless One, walk out on stage. Darby limps a bit because of what happened after the match last week. A hell of a match with Scorpio Sky, but no one saw what Scorpio would do. Darby takes the mic to say he won the TNT title on November 7th, 2020. How many times has he defended since? Three. Fans cheer but Darby says not to, because that’s a joke!

But now that things are done with Team Taz, Darby wants to be a fighting champion week in and week out! That starts by paying tribute to the greatest TNT Champion, Brodie Lee! If Dark Order wants the belt, this is an open challenge! But Lance Archer can’t believe this. How many times are we going to interview Sting? Oh sorry, Darby, did Archer just take up your time? Archer doesn’t give a rat’s ass about that! This time should be his! As for the TNT Championship, the internet might think Darby is great, but Archer says Darby is the biggest “indieriffic” joke ever! And if Darby like coffins so much, Archer will put his ass in one!

Jake the Snake speaks now and says Darby is going to freeze his butt off. He should go put his bun back on. HIs hot dog bun, cuz he’s a weenie! And as for Sting, Sting knows Snake. The winds of change are coming! You don’t play with fire. This is the biggest, baddest SOB here, and Archer will twist it and shove it up their rear ends! The Snake promises things are going to change and Archer promises to crush both of these guys. But wait, wait, wait, Team Taz isn’t done with these two just yet! Taz tells them not to get excited, but then Cage takes over. Cage has something to say! Cage stares Sting down and says he shows up like a hotshot, sticking his nose in Team Taz’s business.

But after all the back and forth and the physicality and the craziest Street Fight ever, Cage respects Sting. What?! But more importantly, Cage wants to look Sting in the eye. Starks is wrong. Sting is STILL the Icon. Taz can’t believe Cage is saying this stuff but Cage says he says it like it is! Cage storms off and leaves Team Taz behind. Will The Machine break free of FTW and carve his own path?

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I did everything I was asked to.” He wants to be the poster boy, the face of AEW, but TNT wants Cody, Darby, Sting. “Nice guys finish last” but Scorpio tried to be the exception to the rule, only to fail. Until Revolution. That was never meant to be Scorpio’s moment, but he made it. And the TNT Championship wasn’t supposed to be his moment but another moment for Darby. No more of that! Scorpio will not be a stepping stone. He is a wrestling savant and is tired acting like he isn’t the best! If he has to hurt someone to prove it, then so be it!

 

Rey Fenix w/ PAC VS Angelico w/ Jack Evans!

The Young Bucks put the Death Triangle on notice, but they’re also a bit distracted given what’s going on with Kenny Omega. Will Fenix stay hot in singles competition until he and The Bastard get that tag title match?

The bell rings, Fenix and Angelico tie up, Angelico wrenches to a wristlock but Fenix spins through to wrench and wrench and step over the arm to hook a leg. Fenix gets the other arm and fans cheer this innovation. Angelico trips Fenix, gets a facelock, then wrenches to a wristlock. Fenix rolls, wrenches, wristlocks again, but Angelico turns it around to wrangle Fenix down. Fenix bridges, kips up, spins and arm-drags! Fans fire up as Angelico resets with Fenix. They circle, knuckle lock and Angelico step sin to cording hold. Angelico wrenches the other arm but Fenix headbutts, CHOPS and CHOPS! Fenix goes again but gets caught to a keylock!

Angelico wrenches, Fenix spins through to hop on for a sleeper hold! Then shifts to roll and ghost pin, TWO!! Angelico escapes but gets caught to a sunset flip, TWO! Fenix dodges the boot, blocks the knee, but Angelico powers him down with it to get the arm! Angelico CLUBS the back and Fenix writhes. Angelico stomps Fenix down and AEW goes picture in picture.

Fenix is on the apron, Angelico KICKS him through the ropes. Angelico tears at the KT tape, the ref reprimands but Angelico lets off. Angelico drags Fenix up and bends him against ropes, but the ref counts and he lets off at 4. Fenix gets back in the ring but Angelico drags Fenix up to cross the arms and bring him into an INVERTED ITALIAN STRETCH! Angelico lifts Fenix’s legs so that Fenix is completely stranded in the air! Angelico then lets him down to trip him up, roll him and ANKLE LOCK! Angelico traps Fenix’s other leg, but Fenix reaches back to club Angelico. Fenix endures the hold, reaches, hits Angelico, but Angelico lets him go.

Angelico knees Fenix to a corner, knees him to the apron, then pulls him against ropes again. The ref counts, Angelico lets off at 4, and Fenix practically hangs out of the ring. Angelico taunts Pac and that pisses him off, but the ref keeps him back while AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Fenix steps in to RANA Angelico! Fenix boots, SUPERKICKS and then somersaults to CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Fenix is shocked but he drags Angelico up and wrenches to fireman’s carry. Angelico fights out, throws elbows then CLUBS Fenix in the back. Angelico slips under, hooks the leg to trip Fenix up, and he wants the trailer hitch! NAVARRO DEATH ROLL!! Fenix scrambles to ropes and gets the ropebreak before Angelico can finish up the Navarro Dos Mil! The ref counts, Angelico lets go at 3, and he grows frustrated. Angelico stalks Fenix to ropes, KICKS him in the back, then drags Fenix to step through.

Fenix kicks Angelico away, Angelico rolls off Fenix’s back but Fenix victory rolls! TWO, Angelico has the cover, TWO! Fenix avoids a sweep but not the EDDY GORDO! Fenix SUPERKICKS, Angelico ROUNDHOUSES! Both men lean on each other to say up, knuckle locks become a monkey flip boost to the CRUCIFIX DRIVER! Fenix drags Angelico back up, FIRE THUNDER DRIVER!! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

The Firebird pulls off the win in a split second! Death Triangle is rolling on, will they get the AEW World Tag Team Championships off distracted Young Bucks?

 

AEW Media catches up with Miro.

Miro is working out and Alexa Marvez asks him about the rematch. Miro can’t understand why “Charles” is doing this. He did sweeten the deal with lifetime butler service, though. But Miro isn’t interested. The opportunity has moved on, Miro has moved on, but Kip Sabian says he hasn’t. Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy ruined Kip’s wedding. Miro was supposed to care. But whether he meant to or not, he pushed Cassidy into Kip’s wife, Penelope Ford. Miro is the one hurt, if Kip thinks tending to his wife is more important than winning the match. Miro says the worst thing for your career is to have your wife ringside.

But remember, when the bell rings, Miro doesn’t care about Kip, Penelope, drama or the opponent. It is about the destiny. It is Miro’s destiny to be champion, he NEEDS to be world champion! Kip wants that, too. Okay. Outside the ring, they’re still buds. But is that a yes or no to the challenge? Of course it’s a yes! Will the Superbad and Best Man be able to finally get to the next level against the Kentucky Gentleman and Freshly Squeezed?

 

AEW has news for next week’s Dynamite!

In a rematch from the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament, Nyla Rose will face Tay Conti! The Pinnacle officially competes as a team as Shawn Spears & FTR take on The Varsity Blondes & Dante Martin! And with Darby Allin issuing an Open Challenge to the Dark Order, we will see one of their numbers step up to a TNT Championship opportunity! Speaking of…

Backstage interview with The Dark Order.

Who is accepting Darby Allin’s challenge? Negative One says “It’s gonna be me!” No, no, Brodie Jr, not yet. Maybe in about a decade when you’re Number 9. But while everyone’s hesitant, Alex Reynolds volunteers John Silver. Ohhh yeah~! The Meat Man, Johnny Hungy! The Dark Order chant, “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” And so it is set! Darby Allin VS Number 4 for the TNT Championship is happening! Will Silver take back the title for the glory of the group?

Further news for next week!

As seen on the premiere of Dark: Elevation, Matt Sydal has earned a non-title shot at Kenny Omega. But if he wins, he will get a title shot at a later date! Can Sydal strike down the Cleaner to go for gold?

 

The Pinnacle follows through on their first promise!

MJF says, “Chris, what’s yours is mine, and what’s the Inner Circle’s is now the Pinnacle’s.” They replace the nameplate on the Inner Circle private room and put the Pinnacle’s in its place! Is this just the beginning of MJF and his team taking over?

 

Unsanctioned Lights Out No Holds Barred: Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Thunder Rosa!

For months, the Doctor has claimed La Mera Mera doesn’t belong in her AEW Women’s Division. But that’s about as substantial as Britt’s claims of being the Role Model and face of AEW. It’s gotten so bad, AEW cannot be held liable for what they’re about to do to each other! Will Rosa make Britt eat her words and possibly her teeth in a match where there’s no holding back and anything goes?

The lights go out, then come back on. Britt makes her entrance first, with Rebel hobbling on the crutch, and not in a good mood since she wanted to be over Rosa. Rosa makes her entrance next, and is fired up. They get in each other’s face but Rebel SMACKS Rosa with the crutch! Rosa stays up and she chases Rebel as the bell rings! Rosa gets Rebel at the ramp but Britt runs and DIVES to take Rosa down! Britt rains down fists, then gets Rosa up for AIR RAID CRASH to the stage! Cover, TWO!! Anything goes means falls count anywhere and Britt throws Rosa off the stage! Britt gets a chair while Rosa sits up, but Rosa avoids the chair shot!

Hikaru Shida watches from backstage as Britt jams Rosa with the chair! Britt flaunts for the camera, but Rosa gets the chair to TOSS it at Britt’s face! Rosa stomps Britt, gets the chair and SMACKS her on the back! And again! Rosa hits Rebel for good measure! Rosa digs the chair into Britt’s neck, and only lets off so she can SMACK her on the back again! Rosa drags Britt up to throw into the front row! Fans cheer “This is Awesome!” as Rosa chases Britt and stomps her down! Rosa drags Britt up, bumps her off chairs, then stands on Britt’s head! And then bumps her off the chair again! Rosa sits Britt up, clears some space, and runs, but Britt dodges so Rosa CANNONBALLS onto only chairs!

Britt hurries to cover, TWO!! Britt throws Rosa hard over railing to ringside, and then tumbles over after her to throw more forearms. Rosa hits back, Britt whips Rosa into stage wall! Jade Cargill is watching and enjoying from the bleachers while Britt and Rebel bring out and set up a table! Britt fetches Rosa at the ramp, and STOMPS her into the steel steps!! Britt grins as she drags more chairs out to throw them into the ring. Britt fetches Rosa and Rosa is bleeding from her forehead! Britt ROCKS Rosa, puts her in the corner, and sits Rosa up so the world can see as AEW goes picture in picture.

Britt clubs Rosa in the head over and over, then drags her up to cravat. Britt throws knees, talks trash, throws more knees, then chokes Rosa against ropes! The ref can only ask if Rosa wants to give up but Rosa refuses. Britt lets off to get the chairs. Britt wedges one chair in a corner, then kicks Rosa down. Britt brings Rosa up to throw forearms. Britt mocks Rosa but Rosa pie faces Britt! Britt ROCKS Rosa, then drags Rosa over. Rosa turns things around to snap suplex Britt into the ropes! Rosa drags Britt back around, covers, TWO! Rosa throws forearms, then gets the chair out of the corner to JAM it into Britt’s legs! And SMACK her on the back!

Rosa puts the chairs in a pile, but Britt CLUBS her! Rosa stomps Britt, throws more forearms, then bumps Britt off buckles. Britt elbows Rosa, throws forearms in the corner, then hoists her up top. AEW returns to single picture as Britt climbs to join Rosa. Rosa brawls with Britt, Britt gets Rosa up, SUPERPLEX onto the chair pile!! Fans lose their minds but also chant “This is Awesome!” as Rosa writhes! Britt hurries to cover, TWO!! Rosa survives and Britt grows frustrated. Britt shouts to Rebel and Rebel brings out a ladder! Rebel puts that in the ring, Britt brings it over, but Rosa is up and BULLDOGS Britt on the ladder!! Britt clutches her face but Rosa covers, TWO!!

Rosa has a crimson mask completing her face paint as she glares at Britt in the corner. Rosa goes corner to corner to METEORA! Rosa sees the ladder and gets it up! Rosa wedges the ladder up against Britt’s face, and then runs corner to corner again, to DROPKICK it into Britt’s face!! Britt is busted open now! Rosa gets a table of her own now and sets it up. Rebel freaks out as the ref checks on Britt, but Rosa stomps Britt down! Rosa drags Britt out of the ring but Britt clings to the bottom rope. Rosa CLUBS Britt over and over, Britt kicks but Rosa stomps her. Rosa has the ladder again and sets it up against the bottom rope to elevate it. Rosa then BITES Britt’s wound!! Britt SUPERKICKS back!!

Rosa flounders, Britt hobbles over and brings her up, COMPLETE SHOT TO THE LADDER!! Britt has a crimson mask now as she flounders around and gets to a corner. Rebel coaches Britt on as she climbs up, but Rosa ROCKS Britt with a haymaker! Rosa climbs up, brings Britt up in a fireman’s carry, and hits a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER ON THE LADDER!!! The ref checks on Britt, Rosa drags her to a cover! TWO!?!? Britt survives and no one can believe it!! Rosa drags Britt around, Britt keeps hitting back but Rosa sits a chair up. Britt throws hard body shots but Rosa clubs her back! Britt DDT’s Rosa to the chair!! Britt then sets Rosa on the chair again, to CURB STOMP her on it!! Cover, TWO!?!?

Fans are thunderous but Britt has another psycho smile like she did last year from her bloody nose! Rebel gives Britt the latex gloves to put on! And she brings out a bag from under the ring! A black satchel is never good in wrestling, and Britt clears some space to pour out… THUMBTACKS!! Britt drags Rosa up, throws a forearm, then brings her around to FISH- NO! Rosa slips out of the spinning fisherman to reel Britt in! Britt blocks the bomb, Rebel gets in with the crutch, but Rosa dodges that attack to take the crutch and SMACK Rebel with it! Rebel flops out of the ring, Britt stalks up on Rosa, but Rosa SHOTGUNS Rebel off the apron, and Rebel falls through the table!

Rebel is down in the wreckage of the table she and Britt set up themselves, but Britt fireman’s carries Rosa! Rosa slips off, kicks low, reels Britt in, and POWERBOMBS her on the thumbtacks!!! Cover, TWO?!?!?! Rebel can’t believe Britt survives but fans again say, “This is Awesome!” Rosa drags Britt but Britt grabs Rosa’s hair, takedown! Rings of Saturn in the tacks!! LOCKJAW! But Rosa rolls Britt back! She can’t hold the cover because of all the tacks!! Britt’s wild eyes are still visible through all that blood, and she SUPERKICKS Rosa! Rosa flounders to ropes, Britt stands on her on the apron. Britt goes out to join Rosa, brings her around and goes up the corner. She’s aiming for Rosa’s table!

But Rosa grabs Britt, scoops her to the THUNDER DRIVER THROUGH THE TABLE!!! Cover, Rosa wins!!!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

HOLY HELL!! Rosa finally ends this with Britt as the one standing tall! Britt’s wounds will surely heal, but will she ever recover from what this defeat means in the long run?


My Thoughts:

An awesome AEW tonight! Cody VS Penta was a great opener, and Cody getting a quick win works to extend things a bit. I like that they also found a way to bring in the Nightmare Family story with QT Marshall with the typical “late to the save, someone’s turning.” Jade Cargill had a great squash for her second match ever, and it was a good touch that she talked trash to Velvet. MJF formally introducing us to his faction and giving it an honestly great name in “The Pinnacle” was a good segment, as was them quite literally just taking The Inner Circle’s private room while The Inner Circle was gone tonight.

The 10 Man Tag was great stuff, the dysfunction with Jurassic Express & Bear Country and the cohesion of Hardy’s group were good dynamics, and it makes sense for Hardy’s team to win their first time out, or else the story would seem like a waste. The story with the Bucks, Callis and Omega is building up in a great way. Callis had a good promo and wow that shirt. That was actually a great jab at WWE because Vince is insane for banning thigh slaps. Moxley & Kingston had a good promo, had a great match with the Good Brothers, and the Bucks coming out to get in Omega’s face was all incredible stuff. I wonder if we’re somehow going to get a Six Man Tag of Omega & Good Brothers VS The Bucks and Moxley.

We got a good segment out of Sting and Darby, with Archer and Snake interrupting to give fair warning, and then Team Taz showing up and Cage surprisingly complimenting Sting. Archer has a good point about overdoing things with Sting, we don’t need to hear from him every week. Oddly, he’s just a vehicle to get the others some screen time. I don’t really want Cage to leave Team Taz, because Cage and Starks are a great team and #AbsoluteMachines just works so well for them. Darby calling out Dark Order was a good move, and Dark Order giving Silver the greenlight is great. Darby VS Silver is going to be a lot of fun, but I feel like Darby will win, and could run the gambit.

Christian Cage had a good promo, and I’m hoping he does a great job when he has his in-ring debut. Scorpio Sky had a good promo, his turn is going great. Fenix VS Angelico was a great match, but of course Fenix wins to go strong into the match with the Bucks. Miro and Kip had a good segment, but damn that line about having wives ringside hurt the career. Miro is definitely going to be the one to turn on Kip because Kip is going to be the one to take the finish from Chuck and Cassidy. They haven’t actually confirmed if it’s an Arcade Machine match, but given that is what started this feud, I hope that’s what ends it.

In the words of good ol’ Jim Ross, BAH GAWD, that Unsanctioned match was a slobber knocker! I would not have expected that much blood, or how seriously scary they were going to get with that SUPER Death Valley onto a ladder. My only gripe with the segment is that Hikaru Shida was watching backstage. I get that she should want to watch the match as a fan, but given what that usually means in kayfabe, it doesn’t make sense. An unsanctioned match does not count on the win-loss record, because that is what was established by Moxley VS Omega in their own Unsanctioned Lights Out match. Britt or Rosa, it shouldn’t matter who wins because they don’t go up the rankings to challenge the champion. It should either be Big Swole or Red Velvet that Shida worries about next.

Rosa winning was at least the right call in story because she needs to be seen as a winner, even if this isn’t going towards her record. Rosa can still want a non-title match with Shida to see if she could beat the champion, but if AEW is going to give us a ranking system and say wins and losses matter (which actually, I’m not sure I’ve heard them say that themselves lately) then MAKE IT MATTER. Swole should want after Rosa and Shida, Velvet can use a rematch with Jade to prove she’s worthy, and we’ve got time until Double or Nothing to figure it out.

My Score: 9.6/10

OFFICIAL RESULTS

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

QUICK NOTES

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

PLAY BY PLAY

Bryan Danielson is here!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Lucha Brothers speak.

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

 

Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss!

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

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

Winner: Parker Boudreaux, by pinfall

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

 

La Faccion Ingobernable meets with the former Andrade Family Office.

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

 

Beardhausen VS Gunn Club!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winners: Gunn Club, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland.

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

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

 

HOOK is here!

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

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

 

Mark Henry speaks with tonight’s main eventers!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
