The Heavy Metal Rebel isn’t pulling any punches, so to speak, with Christian, and the ring count is climbing.

Cover, ROPEBREAK! Christian was too close, Kaz keeps him closer with a cravat and neck wrench. Kaz twists Christian’s head as fans rally up.

But Christian rolls off the hold, POSTS Kaz, then gets the arms and turns, KILLSWITCH!! Cover, Christian wins!

Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall

And that’s the Instant Classic’s first win in AEW, and in seven YEARS! It was a lot of hard work, but will Christian prove he can outwork everyone and keep going?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin and Sting.

“The truth is the truth. Well here’s the real truth, Matt. The truth is, your body’s breaking down, and you feel like you don’t got what it takes anymore. This whole ‘Big Money Matt’ is a reflection of all your insecurities.” Matt Hardy used to earn people’s respect through his sacrifices, and inspired generation after generation. Now he just tries to buy respect. “But all the money in the world cannot buy you real trust, real friends, and real respect.” String makes it rain bills as Darby, in a Hardy cut-out mask, says Hardy must earn Darby’s respect, “because your money doesn’t mean shit to me!” Will the Relentless and the Icon bankrupt the Hardy Family Office?

 

Jade Cargill speaks.

“You know, Velvet, when I first stepped foot here in AEW, before I beat your ass on national TV, I saw that you were shook. Because when you first saw me, like everybody else, you knew I have ‘it.’ When I show up, I walk like money, I talk like money and I look like money.” And when #TK booked her, she made that money. She understands that it’s hard to accept Velvet isn’t better than her idol. So Velvet can go ahead, run on the treadmill, lift the weights, and keep talking that shit week after week. Nobody can beat Jade because she is that woman, she is #THATBitch!

 

Exhibition Match, Arn Anderson as Special Referee: QT Marshall VS Cody Rhodes!

The Gifted came off more like the disgruntled as he vented about his standing and treatment within the Nightmare Family. He called out the American Nightmare to a match, and Cody was willing to give him this exhibition. Members of the Nightmare Factory are ringside to watch their two mentors battle it out! But Cody has already said he won’t go for the kill. Will he come to regret that after the bell rings? Or will the Enforcer make sure things stay civil?

Cody and QT shake hands before the bell, and everyone rallies up already. The two circle, tie up with knuckle locks, and then break. They go again, tie up with collar ‘n’ elbow, and they go around ropes and into a corner. Cody turns things around but QT powers up, and the two break again. QT and Cody go again, QT shoots in to get a leg but Cody trips him up. Cody waits, and even joins in on the claps because as he said, he wasn’t going to go for the kill. QT looks a bit annoyed by that, but he and Cody circle again. They tie up, Cody wrenches to a headlock but QT powers out, only for Cody to run him over.

Things speed up, QT drops then they crisscross! QT hurdles, goes to hip toss but Cody arm-drags him around! Cody arm-drags again to get the armlock and wristlock! QT endures, fights up, Cody wrenches but QT wrangles him down, maybe with a little hair pull. Arn reprimands but Cody kips up to wrench and wring QT out! Cody shows stomp but reconsiders as he’s again holding back on purpose. QT gets a ropebreak, and Cody lets off clean. Fans and the Nightmare team cheer, but QT is annoyed again. QT SHOVES Cody! Cody kicks low, drops down for the Rhodes Uppercut, and then runs, into a dropkick! QT finally gets a shot in and Dustin is there to coach his brother.

QT drags Cody up, wrenches to ram shoulders, and is clearly targeting it because of the tape. QT throws haymakers into the shoulder as AEW goes picture in picture.

QT wrenches the arm, grinds down on the shoulder, and Cody fights up. Cody goes around, whips QT to trip him and cover, ONE! QT sweeps and covers, ONE as Cody just manages a Matrix style escape. QT wrenches, WRINGS Cody out, and then paces as Cody gets up. Cody checks the arm, QT is after him with a hammerlock, and RAMS him into buckles! QT pushes Cody around and this is moving away from just an exhibition of friends. QT wrenches, grinds the arm and CLUBS it, to then RAM it! QT whips Cody hard into the corner, but Cody ROCKS QT! Cody is upping things to match QT, but QT wrenches to hammerlock and grind the arm.

The Nightmare Factory rallies, Cody rolls but QT drops a leg on the arm! QT looms over Cody, brings him up, but Cody pushes him away. Cody is in a corner, QT brings him out to CLUB the arm again. Cody ROCKS QT, QT ROCKS him back and wrenches the arm again! QT is keeping Cody on the defensive as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Cody scoops QT for a POWERSLAM! Cody takes off the weight belt, tosses it and gets the leg, but he did promise not to put on the Figure Four, even if he got the opening. Cody lets it go, and QT is just angrier about that! QT swings on Cody, but Cody spins him around to the dragon sleeper, but again Cody’s promise comes in. Cody throws QT down because he refuses to hit Cross Rhodes, despite obviously having it set up. Cody not taking QT seriously is just pushing him closer to the edge, so to speak, and he SLAPS Cody!! Then runs, dodges Cody’s clotheslines, and leaps but flops as Cody ducks! QT crashes and burns out of the ring!

QT gets up in a huff and walks around. The Nightmare Factory gives him space but also an encouraging round of applause, but everyone else taunts QT with “Cody’s Friend! Cody’s Friend!” Cody opens the ropes for QT, Dustin tries to coach QT but QT brushes Dustin off. Dustin gets up on the apron and accepts the ropes being held open, which Cody applauds, but then QT DECKS Arn!?! What did Arn do?! QT runs out to the ramp as the rest of the Nightmare Factory gets in the ring! QT is suddenly full of regret over what he just did, but how is he supposed to continue from here? QT turns away, and Aaron Solow SMACKS Billy Gunn with a chair?!?

And then Anthony Ogogo CLOBBERS Dustin, Nick Comoroto CLOBBERS Austin & Colten Gunn, and Lee Johnson turns around into Ogogo’s HEAVY RIGHT! Solow JAMS Cody with the chair and digs it into him! Comoroto tosses the Gunn Club out while Carlie Bravo, Dean Alexander and the rest are just stunned in disbelief! Comoroto drags Billy up but Billy hits back with haymakers! QT turns around to see what’s happening and Ogogo CLOBBERS Billy! Dustin gets up but Ogogo throws Billy into railing! Solow JAMS Dustin with the chair!

QT sees what his students have done to the others, and then he tells Comoroto to bring Big Shotty Johnson to him. Comoroto does, with a JACKKNIFE POWERBOMB TO THE RAMP!!! QT stands over Johnson, then steps on him. Is that a response to when Johnson forgot to thank QT almost a month ago?! Is this all because of QT’s feelings of being brushed aside?! QT grabs Arn and SLAMS Arn’s arm against railing!! Comoroto dead lifts the entire steel staircase up to the ramp for Solow and Ogogo to set up for QT. Comoroto then hauls a bleeding Dustin over and hands him off. QT stands on the steps, Solow drags Dustin up to him, and they smear Dustin’s blood on their Nightmare Factory shirts!

QT gets Dustin up, for a PILEDRIVER TO THE STEPS!!! The students fetch Cody, and Ogogo undoes his shirt sleeves so he can LEFT HAND BODY SHOT! Cody goes down in a heap, but Solow and Comoroto kick him to the ramp to be on the other side of the steps. QT has a chair, Comoroto puts Cody on the chopping block if you will, and QT has the chair! But Red Velvet rushes out to shield Cody! Velvet tells QT to stop! This was his friend!! Why is he doing this?! QT is of course quiet on that subject. Fans cheer Velvet’s courage, and QT leaves it at this. Will QT and his students look to finish the Rhodes brothers off another time?

 

AEW hears from Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky.

All Ego says “AEW hasn’t lived up to their end of the deal. I give them star power, I’m a world class athlete, and yet here I am…” and it blends into The Closer saying, “Being overlooked, handing opportunity after opportunity to any and everybody but me.” Forcing Ethan and Scorpio to share the spotlight with people who aren’t even on their level. Scorpio is the Face of the Revolution, and he literally grabbed the brass ring. Now, he and Ethan are not waiting, or asking. They will take anything and everything they want, starting Monday. Will these two reach new heights after facing the Sydal Brothers on Elevation?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Tonight, she came to Cody’s rescue against QT’s assault, and Velvet said she had to! Cody’s her tag partner, she has his back. But then JADE CARGILL attacks Velvet! And RAMS Velvet into road cases. “I already told you, I’m THAT BITCH!!” Velvet didn’t have anyone to watch her back, but will she get back at Jade for that?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“I can’t get that sound out of my head, the crunch, the snap when the Good Brothers took out Eddie Kingston’s ankle with a steel chair a couple of weeks ago. That pisses me off. I hate when I’m in a foul mood like this. I’m getting jumped and attacked by goons every two seconds, that pisses me off. The Young Bucks can’t figure out if they want to be in the fight or not. They come out, try to appeal to somebody’s sensibilities instead of swinging chairs. Which side are you on, man? I dunno, but I guess I do still owe y’all one. That pisses me off.”

Moxley still has burns and scars, he’s all itchy and hot, and that’s pissing him off. And now they’re putting Mox in the ring against this Cezar Bononi fella! Moxley told AEW that Bononi looks good at 6’5″, like some Baywatch lifeguard or something. Has a lot of talent, can make AEW a lot of money, but not if Moxley KILLS him on AEW Dynamite! Whatever, all Moxley knows is, someone’s getting dropped on their head, and someone’s getting choked out. Will the Beautiful Bononi, as “Pretty” Peter Avalon calls him, be in for an ugly fight with the Maniac?

Jon Moxley VS Cezar Bononi w/ Ryan Nemeth & JD Drake!

The bell rings, Bononi uses that 6’5″ frame to get not just in Moxley’s face but literally look down on him. Moxley smirks and pie faces Bononi! Bononi forearms Moxley and Moxley likes that! Moxley fires more forearms in return, then runs, and rams Bononi. Bononi stays up to run Moxley over! Bononi puts Mox in a corner, stomps and throws hands, then drives in elbows! Bononi lets off, knees Moxley in and whips him corner to corner! Moxley dodges, rolls, and runs, but blocks a boot to give it a KNEEJAMMER! And then a DRAGON SCREW! Moxley keeps on the leg with a turn, hook, and SNAP LOCK! Bononi writhes while fans cheer!

Moxley gets the leg, steps to a Half Crab with a little extra, but Bononi fights up to boot Moxley away. Moxley watches Bononi flounder, and he KICKS Bononi in the chest! And again! And again! Bononi eggs Moxley on, Moxley runs but Nemeth takes a swipe! Bononi CLOBBERS Moxley! Then manages to suplex Moxley up and over! Cover, TWO! Bononi looms over Moxley as fans boo and AEW goes picture in picture.

Bononi soaks up the heat, talks some trash to fans, and then drags Moxley up to throw him out. Bononi has the ref check his leg, so that JD can come around and CLOBBER Moxley! Scrap Metal puts Moxley in quick and Bononi stomps away! Cover, TWO! Moxley isn’t that easy, but Bononi stalks him to ropes. Bononi chokes Moxley against ropes, lets off as the ref counts, and comes back to knee Moxley low and hard! Bononi drags Moxley up to CLUB him down, pushes him around, and talks trash., Moxley JABS Bononi, Bononi DECKS Moxley! And then DECKS him again! Moxley hits back, Bononi ROCKS him! Moxley flops around but Bononi kicks him out.

Bononi goes out to soak up more heat, then he drags Moxley up to ROCK him again. Moxley staggers, Bononi storms over but into a kick! Moxley fires off kicks, Bononi knees low again! Bononi CLUBS Moxley, puts him in the ring, then covers, TWO! Bononi hurries after Moxley with a chinlock and squeezes tight! Moxley endures, fans rally up, but Bononi leans on Moxley. Bononi jams his knee in as he adds onto the chinlock, and then does it again and again! Moxley still endures as AEW returns to single picture. Fans rally up, Moxley fights but Bononi knees low again. Bononi whips and clotheslines Moxley in the corner! Bononi whips the other way for another clothesline!

Bononi drags Moxley up, but Moxley throws a BIG forearm! Bononi knees low, whips again, but runs only to miss in the corner! The knee hitting buckle makes it really sore, but Bononi gets Moxley in a waistlock. Moxley kicks the dead lift off, slips out the back and waistlocks in return. Bononi elbows out hard, throws forearms, then whips. Moxley reverses and ROCKS Bononi, then ROLLING ELBOWS! Moxley runs and LARIATS but Bononi stays up!? Moxley SLAPS Bononi, Bononi runs but Moxley gets around to REBOUND GERMAN! Bononi staggers to a corner, Moxley runs corner to corner to clothesline! Moxley hoists Bononi up top, climbs up, and hits the SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!

ARMBAR!! Bononi clasps hands, JD distracts the ref, and Nemeth gets in! Moxley lets Bononi go and stares the Hollywood Hunk down. Nemeth swings, misses, and Moxley kicks him for a PARADIGM SHIFT! Bononi gets up to CLOBBER Moxley! JD goes help Nemeth, Bononi pump handles and lifts Moxley, but Moxley slips around to the REAR NAKED SLEEPER! Bononi is red already! He drops down, he is OUT! Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

Bononi may still be a beautiful beefcake, but The Maniac loves it better when it’s rugged and brutal. Will Moxley be able to bring it back around and go after the Best Bout Machine one more time?

 

AEW hears from Team Taz.

Taz himself says, “This is a message from Team Taz to all of you. Hey listen, like I said last week, everything is fine and dandy in Team Taz. There are some conspiracy theorists-” Ricky Starks speaks up and says he can take it from here. Starks just wants to let everyone know that he had a great time on Dark with them in their Six Man Tag victory. It felt like the “old Team Taz” was back. But, while things have happened in the past and Starks can forgive that, he wants to hear what Brian Cage thinks about it. Oh, he wants to hear what Cage thinks? That’s a first, because Cage was thinking that maybe if Starks tagged him in sooner, they would’ve won sooner.

Taz wants his guys to settle down, just sit back and chill. Everything’s good in the team. Team Taz is doing great, and NOBODY can stop the Path of Rage. Will the Absolute and the Machine have something to say about that?

 

AEW checks in with The Pinnacle.

MJF cannot be any happier to see the cameras. Right now, you will see what it’s like to live, Pinnacle style. MJF mentioned his gift to the group last week, and he cannot be more elated to introduce their new personal stylist! If you thought they were living beautiful before, just look at these options! And that’s not all, guys! They’ll all love this. This room they took from The Inner Circle “is a big ol’ fat dump.” So MJF got them an interior decorator and they can just get rid of the gross stench of the mixed bathroom. HOLY CRAP, the Inner Circle is in there?! Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz are all glaring at MJF. MJF closes the door and it’s time to go! But Hager’s at the door!!

Hager DECKS MJF, the rest of the Inner Circle flood the room, and the Pinnacle is tasting their own medicine! MJF and Y2J brawl while the rest of the team members spill into the hall! FTR brawls with PNP, Hager of course goes for Wardlow, and Sammy tangles with Spears! They’re right by Tony Khan’s office as Sammy RAMS Spears into a wall, then torture racks for the GO TO HOSPITAL, that sends Spears into a door! Sammy then SLAMS the door shut on the Chair Man!! Hager and Wardlow brawl into the trainer’s room, and Hager URENAGES Wardlow through a massage table! That’s not a happy ending.

As for PNP and FTR, they are brawling in the backstage outdoor lounge area, Tully just trying to steer clear of wild shots. Santana ROCKS Cash Wheeler and Ortiz POUNCES Cash into the ice tub! Cash cools off while Ortiz chokes Tully, and Santana shouts, “It’s YOUR turn!” He has a director’s chair- Wait, why is one of these by the ice tub? Dax ducks and the chair SMACKS a pole and busts apart!! Dax is already bleeding from who knows what in between all the chaos, but Santana decides to use the jagged piece to JAM him in the forehead!! And back to Jericho and MJF, they’re still in the private room! Jericho SMACKS MJF off the doorframe as they go into the bathroom!

Jericho drags MJF over to the toilet, MJF fights but can’t stop the SWIRLY!! MJF is sputtering as Jericho brings him around. “The worst is yet to come.” Jericho SMASHES MJF through the Pepsi brand mini-fridge’s glass door!! Then he sips a Little Bit o’ the Bubbly before pouring the rest out on MJF. The Inner Circle regroups and Jericho says, “This is our dressing room, BITCH.” They haul MJF out and leave him in the hall. They rip down the Pinnacle’s sign and stick theirs back on! Will the Inner Circle be THE dominant faction in AEW once and for all?

 

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks.

Alex Marvez asks Matt & Nick Jackson about their tough loss alongside Brandon Cutler against The Lucha Brothers and Laredo Kid, and the big development after the match. What’s going on with the Bucks and Kenny Omega? Matt doesn’t feel like airing more dirty laundry on TV. Move on to- Don Callis walks over and asks them about not wanting to talk about it. Callis tells Nick to “go be a rockstar” while the adults talk. Nick is fine with that, he leaves. Callis tells Marvez to leave so he and Matt can talk “family business.” Callis tells Matt they need to talk, and asks to hear him out. He has something to say man to man: Callis loves Omega, he is family to Callis.

Callis thought the Bucks loved Omega like that, too, talking about how they’re best friends. But what they did last week broke Omega’s heart. Like Omega said, he chose this place. Omega wasn’t choosing AEW over his life in Japan or even more money and fame elsewhere. He chose the Bucks! He made a choice based on family. But what did the Bucks do? They chose to leave Omega bleeding in the ring like some animal! They could’ve helped him, but chose not to, just like with their dad. “Are you so dead inside that you don’t feel anything for the people who loved you?” Callis doesn’t care about how they feel about him, but what about Omega? What is wrong with them? What has happened to them?

No answer, right? Just gonna go count the money. Callis has been trying but doesn’t know how to reach Matt, because he is so cold and dead inside! Then Callis SLAPS Matt!! Matt grabs Callis by the neck! Callis wants mercy, Matt lets him go, and then Callis says, “Really? That’s it, eh? That’s all? Is there anything inside you at all?” Matt’s so pathetic, he makes Callis sick. Will the Bucks show what lies below the surface soon enough? Will Callis regret forcing it out of them when it happens?

 

Six Man Tag: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers w/ Don Callis VS The Lucha Brothers & Laredo Kid!

Death Triangle wants the AEW World Tag Team Championships, and while they’re at it, they’ll take THE AEW World Championship, too! Penta El Zero M wants the Cleaner to understand that since he had to cheat to win the title, his luck is running out. Last week, los tres luchadores destroyed the Dungeon Master and Young Bucks, and now they’ll take everything with #CeroMiedo! Will it be so easy when they’re up against The Biz Cliz tonight?

But before trios sort out, Laredo builds speed and Penta gives him a boost to FLY and take out the Biz Cliz at the ramp! Fenix perches up top, the Biz Cliz get back up to get a TIGHTROPE MOONSAULT! Penta hurries out to throw Omega in while Callis nonchalantly goes to commentary, and the bell rings! Penta SUPERKICKS Omega, Lareda SUPERKICKS Omega, and Fenix slingshots in to SUPERKICK Omega! They go after his jaw that they hit with the mic, and then “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for the Good Brothers to keep them down and out! Laredo kicks but Omega blocks. Omega spins, but misses, to get TRIPLE SUPERKICKS! Laredo covers, Karl Anderson breaks it!

The Lucha Bros much the Machine Gun, throw him out, and then fans fire up as Laredo goes out to the apron. The Lucha Brothers build speed, they DOUBLE TOPE CONJILO while Laredo MOONSAULTS! Direct hit on all the Biz Cliz! Fans are thunderous as everyone regroups and Laredo puts Omega back in. Laredo stalks Omega, whips him corner to corner, then runs in to FOREARM! And snap suplex! Laredo goes up to a bottom rope moonsault! And then middle rope moonsault! Cover, TWO!! Omega narrowly survives and Laredo is surprised. Laredo CHOPS Omega, wrenches and whips but Omega blocks!

Laredo knees low, Omega reverses the whip to fireman’s carry, but Laredo fights free. Omega elbows back, then runs to INVERTED BULLDOG! Tag to Luke Gallows, and #BigLG drags Laredo up. Laredo fires off body shots and a shoulder, but runs into a cheap shot! Anderson gets away and Gallows YAKUZA KICKS Laredo down! Fans boo but Gallows soaks up the heat as he drags Laredo up. Gallows pushes Laredo to the corner, fires off body shots, then hauls him up for a BIG uppercut! Gallows smirks at the Lucha Bros, then drags Laredo up to whip him into the corner. Gallows uses a hip attack, then tags in Anderson. Anderson scoops Laredo for a backbreaker! Cover, TWO!

Anderson claws at Laredo’s mask, throws him down, then tags in Omega. Omega CLUBS Laredo’s arm, then stomps him down. Omega runs to drop an elbow, covers and TWO! Omega drags Laredo up, brings him around and bumps him off Good Brother boots! Tag to Gallows, and he looms over Laredo. He brings Laredo up, whips to ropes and BOOTS him down! Gallows runs to drop an elbow! And another as AEW goes picture in picture!

Another elbow, then Gallows covers, TWO! Laredo lives but Gallows drags him up to drive in more elbows. Gallows clamps on a thrashing chinlock, but fans rally up as Laredo endures. Laredo is fading but he gets his second wind fast. Laredo jawbreakers free, but Gallows headbutts him in the back! Gallows drags Laredo up for more headbutts, then brings him around to tag in Anderson. The Good Brothers mug Laredo, Anderson stomps Laredo down then drags him over. Tag to Omega, he hops up and drops more ax handles. Omega flexes while standing on Laredo for a cover, TWO! Omega kicks Laredo around, just toying with him before hammering and stomping him harder!

Omega bumps Laredo off buckles, tags Gallows, and they drag Laredo up to mug him more. Omega slaps Laredo before Gallows DECKS him! Gallows DECKS Laredo again, suplexes him high and hard, then drops a BIG leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Gallows hammers Laredo, drags him up and AEW returns to single picture. Gallows scoops and holds Laredo up with one arm, before he SLAMS him down! Tag to Omega but Anderson blasts the corner! Gallows is up top, he becomes a backpack for Omega, and Omega shows how strong he is as he carries Gallows over, and then Anderson hops on for a BIZ CLIZ COMPACTOR! Cover on Laredo, TWO!!

Omega is furious and he gets in the ref’s face about it. Tag to Gallows, and he drops a knee on Laredo’s back. Cover, TWO! Gallows wraps on a chinlock and grinds Laredo down.

Anderson blocks the cutter, shoves Fenix to ropes, but Fenix springboards into a SPINEBUSTER! Fans chant “This is Awesome!” as Laredo springboards to ELBOW Anderson off the cover!!

All six men are down but Omega and Gallows regroup in their corner. Laredo goes to his as Fenix crawls over, hot tags to Laredo and Omega! Laredo fires off on Omega with haymakers but Omega ROCKS him! Laredo shoves, kicks and puts Omega in a corner to SUPER FOREARM! Laredo pushes Omega down, goes out and springboards in, into a POWERBOMB! Omega sits Laredo up for a V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO?!? Laredo survives and Omega is furious! Omega drags Laredo up, Electric Chair lifts, but Laredo turns to RANA! And then he DIVES! That Tope almost turns Laredo inside-out! The Good Brothers and Lucha Brothers brawl now, the ref tries to sort this out!

The Good Brothers ROCK the Lucha Brothers, then run, but are thrown out! Everyone gathers again, Penta goes off the corner with a CANNONBALL! Omega gets in the ring, Laredo is after him, but no DDT as Omega breaks free! Laredo blocks the V-Trigger and ENZIGURIS! Omega staggers into the TIGHTROPE PENALTY KICK!

And then, Electric Chair, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!! Cover, Biz Cliz win!!

Winners: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers, by pinfall

No more near falls or near kick-outs for Laredo Kid, the Best Bout Machine puts him away definitively! But here comes Moxley! The Maniac doesn’t give up, but he’s outnumbered right now. Wait, wait, here come the Bucks?! They stand beside Moxley, but whose side are they on? They’re on MOXLEY’s and they all rush the Biz Cliz! Callis gets Omega and the Good Brothers away, but will they have no choice but to face Mox and the Jackson brothers?

 

Britt Baker speaks.

She tries calling Tony but can’t reach him. Schiavone, that is. Probably “sTuCk At ThE dEsK~.” Rebel can just do his job for him. Rebel gets the mic and introduces Britt and has her tell us all about Dark: Elevation. Elevation is where we will see AEW stars like Britt every Monday night on YouTube elevating stars of the future. Britt couldn’t help but notice the rundown that Thunder Rosa was on the list. That’s wonderful, because Elevation is an excellent platform for Rosa to get her wins up. It is a shame that Rosa’s biggest win ever doesn’t even count because it was UNSANCTIONED! But that’s okay, because “The Legendary” Britt will put AEW on the mat. Signed Yours Truly, DMD.

 

Hikaru Shida & Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order VS Nyla Rose & The Bunny w/ Vickie Guerrero & the Hardy Family Office!

Some rare combinations are taking each other on to settle some scores! The Full Metal Warrior and the Brazilian Blackbelt got a great win together on Elevation, but that wasn’t against a team like the vicious Allie and Native Beast! Will the combined intellect, experience and all around nastiness of the Vicious Vixens and Hardy Family Office be a big time money maker against the AEW Women’s World Champion and (current) #1 contender?

Of course, to even the odds of Vickie, Hardy, Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade all ringside, Tay brings the Dark Order! The teams sort out, but Nyla and Bunny rush Shida and Tay! The bell rings, the brawl is on, Nyla throws Shida away then pushes Bunny aside to get at Tay! Bunny sputters back to the corner, Shida and Tay regroup, only for Nyla to run them both over! Shida gets up and fires off on Nyla, but Nyla scoops and SLAMS, to drop a leg, brother! Cover, ONE!! Nyla is after Shida with haymakers, tags in Bunny, and Bunny skips around to then stomp Shida! Bunny hammers away, gets in Shida’s face, but Shida grabs hair!

Shida whips Bunny over into Tay’s boots! Tay then boosts Bunny into Shida’s judo hip toss! Shida is after the FUJIWARA now! Bunny reaches, gets the ropebreak, but Shida just hammers her in the head! Shida hops out to drag Bunny to the apron and CLUB her on the back! Shida glares at Nyla as she gets space to then KNEE Bunny into the ring! Shida glares at Hardy now, too, but Nyla CLOBBERS her from behind! The Dark Order keeps Nyla and Hardy from doing any worse, but Nyla puts Shida in for Bunny. Bunny covers, TWO! Bunny stomps Shida while AEW goes picture in picture!

Bunny bumps Shida off buckles, tags Nyla, and they mug Shida in the corner! Nyla RAMS her shoulder in, and again, then again! The ref counts, Nyla lets off, then she snapmares Shida to KICK her in the back! Shida hits back but Nyla CLUBS her! Nyla drags Shida up, turns her and hits a neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Vickie is upset, she drags Shida up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Nyla bends Shida back in the backbreaker rack across her knee! Shida endures, pulls hair but Nyla clubs her down. Nyla keeps on the backbreaker rack but Shida slips out. Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, tags Bunny, and they mug Shida more. Nyla runs corner to corner to CANNONBALL! Bunny gets in to SLIDING D!

Bunny laughs, Private Party applauds, and Bunny covers, TWO! Bunny runs to shove Tay, Tay gets in but that’s all distraction tactic so Bunny and Beast can stomp Shida at the ropes while the HFO talk trash! Bunny and Nyla let off, Tay is mad, but Bunny feeds Shida to Nyla’s boot. Nyla tags in, drags Shida up and CLUBS her down again. Nyla reels Shida in but Shida resists the lift and fires off haymakers! Shida clubs away on Nyla’s head, then runs, but Bunny grabs hair! The ref reprimands but the damage is done and AEW returns to single picture. Nyla tags Bunny in, they mug Shida more, but Shida elbows Bunny away and sends Nyla into buckles!

Shida drags Bunny around to snap suplex her onto Nyla! Hot tag to Tay! Tay dodges then drop sayanagis Bunny, and again, and again! Tay DECKS Nyla, drags Bunny up and fires off fists! She goes corner to corner to KNEE Bunny, then goes side to side to BOOT WASH! Fans fire up with Tay as she goes up and out and aims, but Bunny ducks one, only to get the other PENALTY KICK! Tay drags Bunny up and gives her the SWINGING BACKBREAKER! Hardy seethes but Tay dares him to do something. Tay drags Bunny up, and Alan Angels hits Big Money Matt! Tay gets Bunny in before the Dark Order brawls with the HFO!

Tay goes up top, Bunny gets under he leap and comes back, only to run into the Gory Especial! Tay swings Bunny for the TAY K O!! Cover, Nyla breaks it in time! Shida uses Tay to springboard and TAMASHI Nyla out of the ring! Shida then climbs up, there’s a cluster forming and she LEAPS, only to be caught! So Tay goes up and LEAPS to bowl everyone over!! Tay fires up as she gets up but Bunny has Shida’s kendo stick! Tay gets in, Vickie distracts the ref, Bunny SMACKS Tay!! DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE!! Cover, Bunny & Nyla win!!

Winners: Bunny Allie & Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Hardy rallies his forces as they and the Vicious Vixens get to cash in big time! Shida and Tay are both still furious, will they make sure Big Money Matt and the venomous Vickie pay dearly?

 

AEW sets up another big Dynamite for next week!

After the confrontation tonight, the Biz Cliz take on Moxley & The Young Bucks in a Six Man Tag! And then to settle what we just saw before our eyes, Tay Conti will take Bunny on 1v1, with a slightly more limited amount of ringside reinforcements. And Darby Allin continues to be a fighting TNT Champion as he takes on the Blue Collar Badass, JD Drake! Plus, after the epic return of the Inner Circle, we will finally hear from Chris Jericho and his team! Then, in AEW’s own battle of kaiju, it will be Jurassic Express VS Bear Country, #OneWillFall!

 

Jurassic Express speaks.

“Hey, Bear Country, you big stupid animals.” Luchasaurus corrects Jungle Boy there, Boulder & Bronson are stupid mammals. Right, sorry. But this is the second time those guys have thrown Marko Stunt around, and JB has a better idea. They should pick on guys their own size! And in honor of the new Godzilla movie- VS Kong? Yes, Godzilla VS Kong. They will have a battle to prove who’s on top of the food chain. Stunt, what’s going on? What is that? Is that a Kong tattoo?! Dude, they’re supposed to be Team Dinosaurs! Luchasaurus storms off, Stunt says he got it so he’ll remember to “beat dat ass.” Stunt hurries after, but will they represent for the reptiles and prove they can be cold blooded?

 

Arcade Anarchy: Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy VS Miro & Kip Sabian w/ Penelope Ford!

For the first time anywhere in all of pro-wrestling, this will be a four player melee tag match, with arcade cabinets, arcade prizes and NO HOLDS BARRED! The only way to win is by pinfall or submission, but feel free to rack up as many points as prizes beforehand! Will the Kentucky Gentleman & Freshly Squeezed make sure it’s game over for Team SuperBest? Or is the level gap just too big between them?

AEW returns once more, and for the first time on Dynamite, Chuck & Cassidy enter to Where’s My Mind by The Pixies. The bell rings and the brawl is on! Miro clubs Cassidy then helps Kip against Chuck. Miro stomps Chuck, Kip fires off on Cassidy and stomps him down! Chuck kicks back while Kip brings Cassidy out of the ring. Miro runs in, Chuck dodges, and Chuck CHOPS! Kip bounces Cassidy off the apron and Miro fires haymakers on Chuck. Miro whips Chuck to ropes and clobbers him to then scoop and FALL AWAY SLAM! Cassidy and Kip brawl towards the games, and Kip bounces Cassidy off Whack-A-Mole! Did he hit a mole?

Miro has Chuck by the arcade cabinets, Cassidy and Kip go around the back, and Cassidy RAMS Kip through the back of the Whack-A-Mole! That was never that good of a game anyway. Wait, Kip is now the mole and Cassidy takes the mallet to WHACK him! And WHACK! Miro runs over to CLOBBER Cassidy! Miro drags Cassidy up, and POSTS him! Then scoops Cassidy to SLAM him! Miro seethes as he looms over Cassidy, and then throws him into the Whack-A-Mole machine! Miro WHACKS Cassidy now! Miro storms around, pulls railing apart and brings it over to be a ramp against more railing. Chuck returns to CLUB Miro! And knee, and hammer, and Cassidy adds on!

The Best Friends bring Miro around but he blocks the double suplex! Miro throws Cassidy away, then brings Chuck around to suplex him into the railing! Miro dares “Charles” to get back up. But he stalks Cassidy first, and he brings Cassidy up and into the ring. Miro gets a chair off the prize wall, goes into the ring, and stands on the chair as Cassidy grabs for it. Miro ROCKS Cassidy over and over and over then grabs the chair. Miro wedges the chair into a corner, grins as he goes back to Cassidy, but Cassidy throws body shots! Cassidy backs Miro down but Miro knees low! Miro brings Cassidy around, but Cassidy blocks the chair bump with all his might!

Cassidy hits low, throws body shots, but Miro RAMS him into the steel!! Cassidy flops out of the ring, Miro grins as he hears the fans chant “MIRO SUCKS! MIRO SUCK!” Miro stalks Cassidy around the way, scares off some of the other wrestlers with “the step,” but Chuck is on top of the Mortal Kombat cabinet! Chuck LEAPS and takes down Miro! Chuck and Cassidy gets Miro up and throw him into railing! And then around to POST him! Cassidy sees Kip getting up and BOOTS him back into the Whack-A-Mole machine! Cassidy gets the trash can lid off the prize wall to SMACK Miro! Chuck gets the kendo stick to SMACK and SMACK, Cassidy adds the trash can lid for MORE SMACKS!

Chuck and Cassidy pinball Miro in the SMACKING! Cassidy tees off, then lets off as Miro is in a daze, to run and CLOBBER him with the lid! Fans are fired up as the Best Friends bring the railing over to RAM Miro down! Then they dump the prize table onto Miro, along with a bunch of other things, AND the Whack-A-Mole machine! Cover, but Kip breaks it in time!! Kip KNEES Chuck, DECKS him, then SHOTGUNS Cassidy into the prize wall! Kip gets Chuck for a HALF ‘N’ HALF to the floor! Kip then runs to SHOTGUN Cassidy through the prize wall!! Kip seethes as he goes to Chuck, but he gets whipped into what’s left of the Whack-A-Mole!

Chuck gets… the teddy bear! He brings it and Kip to the ring, fans chant for the “Teddy Bear! Teddy Bear!” That’s because it has a patch on the back that Chuck peels off, to pour out LEGOs!! If you’ve ever stepped on one without shoes on, you know what’s coming! Kip panics but Chuck brings him around to bump off buckles! Chuck puts Kip up top, climbs up to join him, but Kip resists! Kip fights back and adjusts, but Chuck ROCKS Kip! Kip GAMANGIRIS, Chuck wobbles, Kip gets him for a SIT-OUT BOMB on the LEGOs! Cover, Cassidy breaks it!! Cassidy gets Kip up but Kip throws haymakers! Cassidy gives them back, Kip shoves, Cassidy dodges, tilt-o-whirl DDT onto LEGOs!!

Kip staggers, Cassidy Alabama lifts, BEACH BREAK!! Cover, TWO!?! Kip lives but Cassidy doesn’t let that bother him! ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Penelope drags the ref out!! Mrs. Superbad can’t technically get in trouble for that, this is No Holds Barred rules. Cassidy goes out and Penelope LOW BLOWS him! Penelope takes off her belt, aims at Cassidy, but wait! From the claw machine, it’s KRIS STATLANDER!! The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has returned and BUSTS out of the machine, sending the Plexiglas panel into Penelope’s face! Statlander storms over, Penelope SLAPS her, but that only angers her more!

They run into the ring, Statlander drags Penelope to the apron, for the fisherman MICHINOKU DRIVER through the air hockey table!! Fans are thunderous for “A E DUB!” as spare refs check on Statlander and Penelope in the wreckage. Meanwhile, Miro CLOBBERS Cassidy again! Miro drags Cassidy up to TOSS him across the way! Then he BOOTS Chuck, then he demands a chair! Miro grabs one, brings it around and SMACKS Cassidy on the back! And JAMS Chuck to then SMACK him down, too! And SMACK Cassidy again! Miro scares everyone off so he can attack Cassidy again! And SMACK Chuck again! Miro throws the chair away so he can dribble the Best Friends off another table!

Miro clears the table off, brings it around as Chuck and Cassidy crawl up the ramp. Wait, are those headlights pulling into the parking lot? It’s Mama Baretta’s SUV!! Sue is dropping off Trent!! The Best Friends are truly here now that TRENT is back!! Trent storms down the way, helps Chuck and Cassidy stand, and Miro just salivates now! The Best Friends attack the Best Man 3v1! Miro really is a pinball now! Miro shoves them all away, ROUNDHOUSE for Chuck and BEST KICK for Cassidy! Trent comes back to body check Miro! Miro throws Trent into the stage wall and his rage is boiling over! Though, that’s saying something considering all this…

Miro mockingly waves hi to Sue and he heads over that way. He gets on the SUV, but Trent CLOBBERS Miro! Trent bounces Miro off the windshield, then DECKS him down the way! Trent kicks low, ROCKS Miro again, but Miro rams Trent into railing. Trent sits in a chair, Miro seethes and picks up the (out of order) Mortal Kombat II cabinet! He hoists it up with one arm, and THROWS it, but Trent dodges! Trent throws the chair at Miro’s head! Miro staggers, Trent runs in to SPEAR Miro through the table!! Kip sees what just happened to Miro, but Chuck gets Kip for an OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE through the stage!! Cover, Best Friends win!!

Winners: Best Friends, by pinfall

Trent celebrates with Chuckie T and Cassidy, and they finally HUG!! Statlander joins in as an honorary bestie, for a hug that’s out of this world! Sue gives a Cassidy style thumbs up from the SUV! But now that everyone’s back together again, is this only the beginning for the Best Friends?


My Thoughts:

What an amazing episode! A lot of great action, there was story progression that was definitely more quality over quantity, not trying to cram too much in on one night, and we’re definitely on track for some great stuff come Double or Nothing in May. Christian VS Kaz was a great match and went exactly how it needed to. Christian’s catchphrase is about being the top workhorse, but Kaz was right to criticize him for it. Christian had his struggles in this match, as he should, but he overcame it to win, which was also the right call. I hope Christian has one match every week on Dynamite, letting everyone else have Dark and Elevation. It may not be the “outwork everyone” but it’ll show he’s ready to go every time AEW is on TV.

Darby had a good promo with a good video on Hardy, making me think I was right last week: Darby and Sting are going to be taking on teams with way more than just two people so we can get cool cinematic brawls like we did at Revolution. Hardy is definitely a great choice for their second feud, as he basically brought cinematic matches to wrestling, and certainly to AEW. There is also a really good feud already with the HFO VS Dark Order because of the Hangman angle, and now we’re getting the women’s division involved so that’s great. Shida & Tay VS Nyla & Allie was very good, especially with the “overbooking” ringside. It makes sense for the Heels to win here and extend the feud, and Allie VS Tay next week will be really good, too.

The Exhibition of Cody VS QT went about as expected, in that QT was chippy and bitter, and then he splits off from the Nightmare Family/Factory with Comoroto. I didn’t think they’d be setting a trap like that in the event QT wasn’t winning the match, or that Ogogo or Solow would be part of it. I was hoping for more than a total of four but maybe more Nightmare Factory trainees join up as they get to debut in AEW. Velvet having a quick tie-in with Jade Cargill was also good, we definitely need a big 1v1 for them at some point. The Inner Circle returning was amazing, and we really got a feel for the rest of Daily’s Place. Very curious about the ice tub with the big wraparound couch…

The Six Man Tag was great, but of course it was with who was in it. Of course Biz Cliz wins, they need to stay strong overall. Moxley’s promo was good, his match with Bononi was solid because Bononi and Avalon’s guys got to look good as a unit though they ended up losing. I am also glad to see I correctly saw Moxley teaming with the Bucks, and Callis’ promo with Matt backstage was some great stuff. That Six Man Tag of Biz Cliz VS Mox Bucks is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way. Just not sure if Moxley gets yet another title shot, but at the same time, it just doesn’t feel like it’s time for Hangman to step up or anyone else to really be a contender yet.

Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky had a unique duo promo, I hope those two become a tag team and do some great stuff in an already great tag division. The Arcade Anarchy was proof again that AEW can do these wacky gimmick Street Fights way better than WWE can, and I’m again glad to see Trent came back to help finish this off, it was an even greater surprise to see Statlander go after Penelope. The Best Friends’ true form can finally go after tag titles, Cassidy can do whatever whenever, and Statlander can get red hot again in the Women’s Division, AEW’s got almost too many stars and not enough space. No space puns intended given I was just talking about Statlander.

My Score: 9.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Steel Cage, MJF as Special Guest Referee: Wardlow VS Shawn Spears!

The final hurdle is here! If the War Dog can get through the Chair Man inside this cage, he’ll get Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Double or Nothing! But of course, stacking the deck as always, MJF is going to be the officiator in this match, wearing his own custom referee shirt. He claims he’ll call this right down the middle, but will MJF make sure Spears slays the giant and saves him from certain doom on Sunday?

Once again, Wardlow is in cuffs while being escorted to the ring. Fans chant, “WARD~LOW!” the whole way, and Wardlow steps inside the steel. MJF says he’s got those cuffs, as soon as he does the pat down. Wardlow is clean, but MJF “misplaced” the key. Fans boo, because they know this is just another way to rig this match! Spears attacks Wardlow outta nowhere, and MJF has the bell ring! Spears stomps, CLUBS and then throws body shots and more stomps. MJF whistles and has Spears back down, because he “found” the key. But then MJF stomps away on Wardlow, too! MJF knows Wardlow can’t attack him because that’ll violate the match contract!

Spears CLOBBERS Wardlow, stomps him, and MJF smirks. Wardlow gets up but elbows Spears away! Then BOOTS him! But MJF rakes Wardlow’s eyes! Fans boo but MJF eggs them on. Spears drags Wardlow up in the gap between ropes and steel, and both he and MJF run to RAM Wardlow into steel! MJF and Spears high-ten and then soak up the heat. Fans taunt Spears with “TEN! TEN! TEN!” and Spears brings the kneepad down. But Wardlow back drops Spears away! And BOOTS him! MJF stares Wardlow down because again, he can’t be touched. Wardlow endures the taunting, even as MJF SPITS in his face!

But then Wardlow BREAKS the cuffs on his own!? Wardlow CLOBBERS Spears over and over, THROWS him into the steel, then drags him up to TOSS him into more steel! Fans tell MJF he F’d up, but Spears HOTSHOTS Wardlow! Fans boo as Spears hurries up a corner, but Wardlow is after him! Wardlow won’t let Spears escape, he CUBS Spears over and over, then throws him down! Wardlow adjusts on the top rope to SWANTON BOMB! Cover, but of course MJF doesn’t count. Wardlow realizes he should’ve known better. Fans chant, “Ref, You Suck!” but MJF doesn’t care. He’s untouchable in this match! But Wardlow stepping closer does scare him…

Wardlow gets Spears up, but MJF LOW BLOWS him! Spears hurries to fireman’s carry, C4!! Cover, MJF is ready, TWO!! MJF went as fast as humanly possible and Wardlow still got out! Not only that, Spears realizes his finisher juts got buried! Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” as he stirs, but Spears goes outside the cage to get his chair! This non-escape cage match has to end in the ring but Spears brings in his insurance policy! MJF holds Wardlow up for Spears, and Spears winds up, but Wardlow moves! CHAIRSHOT TO MJF!! Wardlow didn’t need to touch MJF to get even with him! And now Spears is stunned as fans chant that he F’d up!

Spears then realizes Wardlow is standing back up. Spears turns around, Wardlow brings the straps down! Spears is now wishing escape was a way to win. Wardlow gets Spears up, POWERBOMB! But that’s just one! Here’s another POWERBOMB! And then a third POWERBOMB! The Powerbomb Symphony has the fans rocking, and a spare ref runs in! Wardlow sets up Spears’ chair, gets Spears back up, and fans are thunderous! Wardlow reels Spears in again, POWERBOMB ON THE CHAIR!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (WILL face MJF at Double or Nothing)

Wardlow got even with Spears, but now he wants MJF! Security rushes in but Wardlow DECKS each of them one at a time! There’s almost no end to these guys, but Wardlow gets that last one with a kick! Wardlow reels this guy in, gets him up, and BOMBS him against the cage!! The man falls into the gap, never to be seen again! Wardlow then climbs up the cage just to make a point that MJF can’t hold him back anymore! Is Wardlow not only going to win his freedom from MJF, but rid AEW of MJF once and for all?

 

AEW’s heart goes out to Uvalde, Texas.

After the tragedy of the school shooting, all any of us can really do is love each other and pray violence stops.

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society walks ‘n’ talks.

Daniel Garcia tells Blackpool Combat Club, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz that this Sunday, Double or Nothing, Anarchy in the Arena, the JAS shows you how violent sports entertainers can really be. But then hold on, who is this bozo wearing a Moxley shirt? Menard and Parker get in this guy’s face. Good quality shirt. Is this polyester? Parker asks if he wants a taste of his switchblade… comb. Y’know what happens when you’re a Moxley fan? FIREBALL from Jericho!! The Wizard strikes again! Will the JAS show no mercy to anyone who isn’t on their side?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

As we celebrate three years of AEW where it all began in Las Vegas, Nevada, we have the biggest AEW World Championship match ever on the biggest night ever, Double or Nothing. And the challenger is the Best in the World, CM PUNK! Fans fire up as Punk makes his entrance! And he sits cross-legged on the stage while he rallies the fans to get louder. Punk continues down to the ring and fans chant his name. Schiavone then introduces the other half of this face-to-face, the AEW World Champion, HANGMAN ADAM PAGE! Fans fire up again as the Cowboy makes his way out, belt on his shoulder.

Hangman joins Punk and Schiavone in the ring and Schiavone says these last few weeks, both men have joined commentary and watched the other go to work. Hangman’s used Go To Sleep, Punk’s used the Buckshot, and there’s been a lot of talk and now, for the first time, they’re standing here for a face-to-face interview. Schiavone starts with Punk, saying Punk is prepared for Double or Nothing and becoming the next AEW World Champion. Punk has a mixed reaction from Vegas but with plenty of fans chanting his name. Punk says it is safe to say, “the biggest moment of my career happened right here in Las Vegas.”

Punk is grateful to be in the position he is in, loves the fans all over the world, and plans to walk in challenger, and respectfully walk out the champion. Schiavone now goes to Hangman and says Hangman knows just who he is facing, what everyone knows about CM Punk, but this confidence level is off the charts for the challenger. Fans also have a mixed reaction for Hangman, and still plenty chanting, “COWBOY S*IT!” Hangman says he said exactly what he was going to do to Punk, and did he stutter? “There is nothing that you can do to me to take this championship away from me!”

Schiavone says this is a determined champion, but Punk says he isn’t so sure why Hangman takes this personally. Hangman is a champion because he is Hangman Adam Page, the toughest SOB in AEW, and he holds that gold for a reason. But there is a locker room full of people just like Punk waiting for their shot. This is just business. It’s Punk’s shot, it’s not personal. Schiavone says there seems to be respect here, but Hangman takes the mic to say, “I said three weeks ago exactly what I was going to do to you. I said I was going to destroy you. I said I was going to annihilate you, to embarrass you. And I did not mean at Double or Nothing. I meant right now.”

Punk smirks and says, “Okay,” as Hangman says he’s been waiting for this moment not just weeks, but for months. Hangman has imagined himself sitting on the stage, cross-legged, and he’d pull out a lighter to light a pipe bomb and roll it down to Punk’s feet and watch it blow up in Punk’s face! How cathartic it would feel, and how full circle for Punk, right here in Vegas. But now that we’re here… Hangman realizes that he just can’t do it. He can’t. Not because he’s afraid he’d get fired or because he’s afraid of Punk. But when Hangman thought about what he wanted to say, he realized it’s just what Punk would do.

And fighting Punk’s hatred, pettiness and cowardice with more of the same would not be the right thing to do. But Hangman will say face-to-face, man-to-man, how he feels about Punk. “I don’t hate you. I almost pity you. And I have no respect for you and what you’ve done since you’ve gotten here. You want this AEW World Championship? I don’t think you understand what it means to be a champion. After all these years, I don’t think you get it. Because it’s not just about what happens in this ring, it’s about what happens when that red light turns off. What happens when you go back through that curtain. Those small, quiet moments when you think no one’s watching. That’s what makes a champion.”

Hangman says Punk talks a big game about worker’s rights, but has shown the exact opposite since getting here. Hangman loves this place, cares about this place, this is his home! And at Double or Nothing, Hangman will not be defending this title against Punk. For the first time in Hangman’s life, he will be defending ALL ELITE WRESTLING from Punk! Fans fire up hearing that one! Hangman then offers the mic to Schiavone and he takes it back. Punk’s response is he doesn’t get why Hangman’s so angry and taking this personally. “It makes me a little bit confused. You’re kinda talking in circles, it’s a big riddle, but if you’re so upset that I’m here, you’re gonna have to do something about it on Sunday.

“Win, lose or draw, I respect you, Hangman. But remember, those roads you traveled to get here? They were paved by me. This house that you built? It was constructed with lumber from trees that I chopped down. The world you traveled to get here, to create All Elite Wrestling, happened because I gave you the blueprint. You will shake my hand Sunday. Y’know what, Hangman, you’re gonna shake my hand right now.” Punk holds out his hand, fans are a bit torn, and Punk says all this misplaced anger isn’t for Punk, it’s for Hangman himself. Now shake his hand. Hangman says no thanks, so Punk shoves him. And Hangman DECKS Punk!

Fans fire up as Punk is rather shocked by that move. But he also smiles, perhaps getting exactly what he wanted. Hangman scowls and storms off, will he have a better poker face when it’s Double or Nothing?

 

AEW looks closer at the coming TBS Championship rematch.

The Queenslayer made the save for Statlander on Rampage, but Jade Cargill asks, “Anna Who?” The girl she already beat? But Anna says she doesn’t get all the extra BS, like the lights and the pyro and the Baddies Section. Jade already beat dat ass, but Jay thinks she deserves another shot? Jay says after her lose, she learned from some of the best on the roster. Now, she’s ready to beat the best and be TBS Champion. Double or Nothing, Jade says you put all your money on her because she is nothing but money. Will #ThatBitchShow just get even bigger and better? Or will Number 99 be the one in 30-1?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!

Bryan Danielson would’ve been here but he got his leg trapped between ramp and ring on Rampage last Friday.

AEW takes a closer look at the Owen Hart Cup.

Mark Henry says watching all the competition in these tournaments, he is sure Owen would be so proud. Toni Storm says just a few months ago, she thought she was out of wrestling for good. But now she is this close to the finals. Britt Baker vows to defeat Storm and win the tournament at Double or Nothing to prove once again she is the best. Kyle O’Reilly tells Samoa Joe, Double or Nothing will be an Undisputed Elite finals. But Joe ponders the question, “How do you beat someone like Kyle O’Reilly? A submission aficionado, a striking prodigy.” But like all fancy things, you just place it on the anvil and break it. And when Joe is down with Kyle, he’s coming for Adam Cole, BAYBAY.

The Hardy Boyz speak.

Matt tells the Young Bucks that their stories both began with a lot of similarities. They were all born and raised by wholesome, religious parents. They had innocent upbringings where they didn’t smoke or drink. They didn’t even curse! And they all had dreams of becoming pro-wrestlers. But that’s where the parallels end. The Hardys broke into the business in the early 90s, and it was a different industry back then, and a majorly different culture. The brutal, tough roads the Hardys had to walk, the Bucks could never, EVER have survived! The Bucks don’t have the grit, the resilience that these two have. The Hardys no only survived, but they became a revolutionary tag team.

Sure, the Bucks are talented, are Elite, but let’s call it like it is. When the Hardys look at the Bucks, and even when the fans look at the Bucks, all they see are Hardy Boy cosplayers! The reason the Hardys are here in AEW is to cement their legacies as the GOATs of tag team wrestling. Jeff says that was GR-E-E-E-E-EAT. Get it? Goats? But they’re not a team in their prime, they’re a team in their OVERPRIME, and it is overtime! The pressure is on to win. This is a clean slate for Jeff, it is his time approaching the eventual time. But this final run will be the best run!

So at Double or Nothing, the Bucks are just two little stepping stones on the Hardys’ way to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions to complete the collection! And if the Bucks think they’re in their prime, well, they will NEVER be better than the Hardys! The Hardys have been better at every stage of life! Better as babies, as kids, as teenagers, at their peak, and right here and now even as middle-aged and extreme! The Bucks may be elite, but this is the DELETE! They will DELETE the Bucks this Sunday! And there’s a saying: Never meet your heroes, they’ll probably disappoint you. But for the Bucks, it’ll be more like disappointed that they can never beat their heroes!

Dan Lambert & the Men of the Year speak.

Lambert says, “Sammy, Tay and Frankie must have a combined IQ of room temperature with the air conditioning on if they thought for one second that busting up Scorpio’s TNT title belt was going to get them the match that they want. Well, somebody please tell these idiots about this new invention we have called the internet and show them how to look up American Top Team. Because maybe then, they would understand that winning every championship there is in combat sports means I probably have every belt maker in the world on speed dial.” That’s right, Lambert ordered Scorpio a brand new belt even before AEW’s favorite couple could tweet out a picture of themselves in the middle of some disgusting act wearing the old one.

So, Scorpio Sky gets a special Friday Night Rampage. The brand new, custom made TNT Championship, handcrafted in Scorpio’s image, will be presented to him and he will love it. Scorpio snaps his fingers and we cut away, but will Sammy, Tay & Frankie just look to break that belt up, too?

 

Schiavone is on stage.

This Sunday, the AEW Women’s World Championship will be defended. Schiavone introduces the champion, Thunder Rosa! La Mera Mera makes her way out, and Schiavone asks her about Deeb’s challenge. Rosa wants us to see her face. It has no face paint! This is the real Rosa, the face of someone who has worked and earned everything she has, and is grateful for being champion. That has never complained, either. Because that is what champions do. Deeb, “mi reina,” you are NOT a champion. Fans cheer Rosa on, and Rosa tells Deeb that she complains, is a little petty.

Rosa says Deeb points fingers at people and companies, pinning things on her past, with her questionable changes. Maybe Deeb should look in a mirror and blame herself. Rosa’s face used to look up to Deeb, but no more! And on Sunday, Deeb won’t see this face. On Sunday, the war paint is on. On Sunday, the warrior inside Rosa takes over! On Sunday, La Mera Mera will teach Deeb a lesson in respect for disrespecting Schiavone, for disrespecting Rosa’s mentor, Dustin Rhodes, for disrespecting the fans, and especially for disrespecting Rosa, the AEW Women’s World Champion!! And y’know what? Deeb will be very scared, because Rosa will haunt her forever!

 

AEW returns as Schiavone interviews Red Velvet backstage.

A tremendous match between The Chef and Kris Statlander in the Owen Hart Cup, but Statlander won. Velvet is surely upset. No sh*t, Schiavone. Velvet says she should have won that match, and she should be facing Ruby Soho. But speaking of, Soho walks in because she heard her name. Does Velvet have something to say to her? Yes, actually. If Soho needs to know how to beat Statlander, Velvet’s got this notebook right here. Statlander’s knee is messed up, and she has a bad shoulder, too.

Velvet leaves and Soho says she can admit, when she faced Statlander last time, Soho won by the skin of her teeth. But in the next round of the Owen Hart Cup, Soho knows she’s not facing the same Statlander. This notebook is useless, so Soho throws it away. Soho will keep what Velvet said in mind, though. Will the Runaway be able to get past whatever this new form the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has taken and head for Double or Nothing? And speaking of…

Kyle goes down and fans fire up with Joe! Joe JABS, JABS and JABS, to then whip and atomic drop! Joe keeps moving, and he BOOTS Kyle down! SENTON! Cover, TWO! Kyle survives but Joe keeps cool. Joe stands Kyle up for knee after knee, but Kyle blocks to KICK the bad arm. Kyle runs, but Joe LARIATS him down! Cover, TWO!! Kyle survives and Joe is beside himself! Fans rally behind Joe and he watches Kyle rise.

Joe brings Kyle up but Kyle throws a forearm! Joe responds with palm strike after palm strike from his good arm! Joe has Kyle in the corner, puts him up top, then tucks him in! MUSCLE- NO! Kyle fights out and has the bad arm! Kyle shifts around from double wristlock to FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Joe endures but Kyle pushes back! Joe crawls, reaches out, turns on his side, ROPEBREAK! Kyle lets go quickly but still wants the bad arm. Kyle rips off the tape and snarls as he KICKS the arm again! Joe is in the corner, Kyle BOOTS him! Joe JABS, and JABS, and CHOPS! Kyle BOOTS again, but Joe KNEES Kyle as he shoots in low!

Kyle staggers, yoyos in the ropes, and LARIATS! Joe ENZIGURIS! Kyle PENALTY KICKS! Fans fire up again as both men are down! Kyle and Joe go to opposite corners, fans love “A E DUB!” for this, and Kyle runs corner to corner! URENA- NO! Arm-drag counter, and Kyle shoots around. O’Conner Roll, TWO! COQUINA CLUTCH!! But Kyle has the bad arm! Joe is still locking it in with the one good arm! Kyle sputters, and he’s out! JOE WINS!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (advances to the finals)

Even with one good arm, the ROH World Television Champion pulls off the victory! But here comes Adam Cole, BAYBAY! Cole and Joe have never had a match against each other before, and now they will in a historic finals match at Double or Nothing! Who will win the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Dynamite, especially as a go-home for Double or Nothing. For one, opening with the Steel Cage was an awesome move. I should’ve figured MJF would go that far to try and screw Wardlow over, but it was awesome how Wardlow turned it around on MJF. That was one serious headshot and MJF sold it perfectly. Wardlow of course wins, and of course we’re now getting MJF VS Wardlow at Double or Nothing, and who knows how that goes. There is a very good chance MJF wins, though, with the dirtiest of ways to win, but I bet Vegas would go nuts if Wardlow won. Also great to see that I called the TNT Championship was being remodeled for Scorpio, I bet that thing will look awesome.

Great promo from the JAS, and wow, Jericho with another fireball just because that staffer wore a Moxley shirt. If this were sports entertainment, they would’ve mentioned Jericho getting fined a lot of money. Regal and Jericho were very good on commentary during Moxley & Kingston VS Private Party, which was a lot of fun and a pretty good sampler of what Anarchy in the Arena will look like. I don’t want it to be so chaotic because that’ll be hard for everyone to keep up with all the action, but it will surely be just brawling all over ringside and even in the ring, and who knows what we’ll see these teams do to each other.

Good promo vignette from Jade and Jay to hype up the rematch, but again, because it’s Jay again, I feel like Jade’s got this one. I did like that Velvet, though Heel, gave Ruby, a Face, advice on how to beat Statlander since Velvet is now Statlander’s enemy. Ruby had a good Face response, and Ruby VS Statlander on Rampage is going to be a great match. Great promo from the Hardys to hype up their match with the Bucks, no idea who wins that match, but I definitely see the winner going after the AEW World Tag titles. And while Rosa had a very good promo, they started her music a little early. Probably just them misreading her promo, but it also felt like they were playing her off, which is a bit rude to do to your AEW Women’s World Champion. But that aside, Rosa is surely retaining against Deeb.

Great segment from Hangman and Punk, and though Hangman purposefully danced around the issue, I’m pretty sure what he was getting at is Punk coming in and throwing off all the plans for the AEW originals, Hangman himself included. Punk also had a good counter saying he was the foundation of what AEW is even about. That match is going to be amazing, Hangman knocking Punk down technically means Punk is standing tall because he got in Hangman’s head. I would think Hangman retains the title and that strengthens his reign, probably so he’ll be real strong for Kenny Omega’s eventual return.

The ROH World Tag Team Championship match was great stuff, and I even liked that it ended up like it did because The United Empire shows up to further build towards Forbidden Door. FTR wants more tag titles, RPG Vice called out a lot of champions, and now it seems the Empire figures they’ll grab up titles, we could get a huge tag title match with this feud. The Triple Threat of JB, Starks and Swerve was great stuff, and between Swerve winning the match and Keith running off the other heavies, I have a feeling Keith & Swerve end up losing somehow. That might mean Jurassic Express finds a way to retain, maybe Team Taz wins, but who knows.

Great “double main event” from the Owen Hart Cup Semifinals, and we even got a good promo vignette to hype the matches up. Britt VS Storm was of course still affected by Hayter showing up, but I almost thought Hayter was going to accidently cost Britt. But no, Britt still wins, as expected, and she is paralleling Cole as they’re both finalists. Joe VS Kyle was awesome stuff, and especially with Joe selling the arm damage from last week. Joe winning was great, though, and that gives us a classic Face VS Heel showdown. I suppose it would be too early for Cole VS Kyle, possible dysfunction between them in AEW after doing that story in NXT, and Cole VS Joe will still be awesome. But with Lethal, Sonjay & Singh lurking, I bet Joe loses because of them and Cole wins, he and Britt will be an Owen Hart Cup winner power couple.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW Dark 2

Rocky Romero and #JustTrent arrive in Universal Studios!

Before challenging FTR for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, Roppongi Vice fires up in the Dark! Will they be partying in the Dark, too?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Kris Statlander VS Avery Breaux; Statlander wins.
  • Matt Menard & Angelo Parker VS Eli Isom & T.U.G Cooper; Menard & Parker win.
  • A.Q.A VS Brittany Jade; AQA wins.
  • Lee Moriarty VS Alan Angels; Moriarty wins.
  • Sonny Kiss VS Carlie Bravo; Kiss wins.
  • Robyn Renegade VS Vicky Dreamboat; Robyn wins.
  • Anthony Ogogo VS Trenton Storm; Ogogo wins.
  • Leva Bates VS Kia Dream; Bates win.
  • Roppongi Vice VS Peter Avalon & Ryan Nemeth w/ JD Drake; RPG Vice wins.

QUICK NOTES

A good line-up of nine, and great to see Leva Bates back in action. Also nice to see the team formerly known as 2point0 having a tag match, that’ll help get them going in the tag division while also building towards the “Anarchy in the Arena” at Double or Nothing. And RPG Vice will definitely get a win before their match on Dynamite.
