Per the rules, AEW “shuffles the deck,” and we start with the Clubs first! And first out for that group, it’s CHRISTIAN CAGE!

AEW World Championship Triple Threat: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS PAC VS Orange Cassidy!

From AAA to AEW to Impact, The Cleaner is becoming a belt collector, but “let’s call a spade a spade.” The Bastard has unfinished business with the Best Bout Machine, and he doesn’t exactly respect Freshly Squeezed.

No count outs, no disqualifications, no Champion’s Advantage for the man with more simultaneous championships than anyone in wrestling today! What are the odds that something wild will happen at Double or Nothing?

The introductions are made, AEW’s belt is raised, and we see who overcomes two opponents at once!

Stadium Stampede 2: The Inner Circle VS The Pinnacle!

Chris Jericho and company challenged The Elite to this very match type last year, and did not win. They challenged MJF’s faction to Blood & Guts, and did not win. This rematch has some of the highest stakes possible, because if Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana & Ortiz lose again, they are no longer a faction! Will this be the end of the Inner Circle?

My Jerkoff- er, Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s limousine pulls right into TIAA Bank Field’s, well, field, and he hops out. He calls out Jericho and his boys, and wonders if they’re afraid of The Pinnacle. “You should be! Chris, do you remember when you told me the worst was yet to come? Well guess what? For the first time in your miserable life, you were right.” But Jericho didn’t know he was talking about tonight and talking about himself, because MJF swears tonight is the LAST night of the Inner Circle! “Because my name is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and I’m better than you, and you know it!”

But the Inner Circle’s music hits, and they REPEL DOWN THE SCOREBOARD! Fans sing Judas for them as they descend onto the battlefield! MJF seems in disbelief, but the Inner Circle is ready for war. MJF hypes himself up as the Inner Circle walk down the bleachers, but where is the rest of the Pinnacle? MJF runs back inside his limo as the Inner Circle rush up to it. But there are other motors revving, and the Pinnacle rides in on FTR’s truck! MJF is staying safe in his limo while his minions battle for him! Wardlow and Hager, Spears and Sammy, Santana and Dax Harwood, Ortiz and Cash Wilder!

It is a scrap all around the field, mixing and matching, and Spears brings Sammy to the ring at the 50 yard line! Sammy tackles Spears in return, a bell rings and now Stadium Stampede begins! Sammy rains down hands, Spears turns it around to give hands back. Ortiz throws Cash into walls, while Wardlow and Hager avoid falling into a bonfire?! Spears whips Sammy to the apron but Sammy GAMANGIRIS! Sammy springboards and CUTTERS! Spears writhes but Sammy heads to the apron. Sammy KICKS Wardlow away, goes up top, and SHOOTING STARS! Spears moves, Sammy lands on his feet but runs into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB!

MJF creeps out, feeling confident now that he’s safe. But Jericho was waiting for him! The team leaders are alone, and MJF says, “Bring it, you piece o’ shit.” Jericho steps up and they brawl in the red zone! Jericho CLUBS MJF down, rains down fists, while Santana, Ortiz and FTR go up the bleachers. Cash throws dust in Santana’s eyes! Jericho opens the car trunk, MJF stops from being crushed by the door, and uses a FIRE EXTINGUISHER to blast Jericho in the face! MJF shouts, “Screw you, Jericho!” and runs away. Jericho, enraged, gives chase into the backstage area!

The brawling in the bleachers continues as Santana bowls Cash into chairs. Spears eggs Sammy on while Jericho and MJF run through the halls. MJF wants to talk this out but Jericho knocks him down! Jericho puts MJF in a trash bin and SMACKS him! MJF throws HOT COFFEE into Jericho’s face! Then SMACKS him with a landline phone! “Sorry, Chris can’t come to the phone right now, he’s too busy swallowing his own teeth!” MFJ DECKS Jericho, hangs up the phone, and claws Jericho’s eyes! “I’M THE GOAT NOW!!” Jericho gets away, and SHOUTS into a megaphone, right in MJF’s ears!

Jacksonville Jaguar fans cheer for seeing Charlie Strong and Urban Meyer. Jericho’s given a football, and he throws it at MJF! Then another one! Urban hands Jericho a spare laptop, and Jericho SMACKS MJF over and over with it! Hopefully that one wasn’t important. But then MJF rakes Jericho’s eyes!

MJF grabs a Jags helmet, but Jericho dodges! MJF whiffs, Jericho DECKS MJF! Jericho makes MJF take a seat, and wheels him into the other room, sending him flying into a table! Jericho wishes the Jags luck this season as he heads into that room. MFJ crawls and Jericho taunts him. Jericho gets MJF up but MJF punches the bad arm! MJF talks trash back but gets SMACKED by the rotating whiteboard! MJF crawls away again and Jericho tells him to run away like a bitch!

Apparently, Santana and Ortiz have followed FTR to one of the small clubs within Daily’s Place. They take bottles and SMASH them on the heads of the random guys getting in their way! FTR moves up, and they toss aside those getting in their way! They’re wrecking everyone that isn’t Pinnacle or Inner Circle, and then they sit at a table together?

My Thoughts:

Another awesome AEW PPV, and especially for the first one with a full crowd at Daily’s Place. All of the matches were great, though I will say a few of them felt like the outcomes were obvious before. The NWA Women’s Championship was not going to change hands with it being on the Buy-In, and it not being AEW’s place to decide that stuff anyway. Likewise, the AEW Women’s Championship was of course changing hands because Shida made it to one year, she had her moment on Dynamite, though admittedly a short moment. My only gripe with that match was it perhaps had one too many false finishes. I haven’t really felt that way about a match before, but it started to get that way here, like with Rebel smacking Britt and she somehow surviving. Other than that, Britt of course deserves to be champion after all the hard work she’s put in.

Sting & Darby were of course going to win, it’s STIIIIIIING~! But the match was awesome, and I did appreciate that, after I had said something about it for an AEW Dark/Elevation, Ethan & Scorpio now have matching gear. Ethan & Scorpio are likely still top five in the tag division rankings, and they need to bide their time while the Bucks are still Heels. I will say the Bucks VS Moxley & Kingston was awesome stuff, and for a second felt like it could’ve been Moxley’s & Kingston’s, but it did create a strong character beat for the Bucks to win because they stopped cheating and just did their moves. I like the detail of Kaz getting involved, I wonder if things circle back where Kaz joins Mox & Kingston in an anti-Elite trio.

Cody VS Ogogo was about as expected, with the wrestler winning because this is wrestling, but him going the extra mile to be AEW’s Captain America or something is the same stuff that turned some people off to Cody a couple weeks ago. The Memorial Day message and honoring veterans is appreciated, but no more “USA VS World” as a motivation for story, please. Miro VS Archer was great, but I feel a bit of story got lost because it was part of some kind of fan fest segment that I suppose was part of the countdown special on Saturday. Even so, the match was great, Miro gets heat for throwing a bag that obviously wouldn’t have a real snake in it, and I am a bit surprised he retained. Archer hasn’t gotten much at all since joining AEW, so I thought this was that night. Maybe he’ll get another shot at All Out or Full Gear, since both were already advertised for when and where.

A little surprised the Casino Battle Royal didn’t go first, but Hangman VS Cage was an awesome opener. I don’t think Cage losing because of Team Taz distracting him weakens Hangman, but I am wondering if this really does help Hangman get to the world title by All Out. The rift within Team Taz is growing, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the moment Starks is healthy, he has it out with Cage. The Casino Battle Royal was good, but I felt like it went really fast. Lio Rush is a great wild card, though obviously a lot of people were expecting a lot of other possibilities. Rush showing up strengthens the AEW NJPW relationship, so everyone shut up about WWE and NJPW, that was about Daniel Bryan.

Jungle Boy winning was the right choice. He is young and supremely popular, and no offense to Christian, but he’d give any of the three in the world title match a much better match than Christian. However, Omega was another of the guaranteed winners of that Triple Threat, especially with Callis nearby. The heat on Callis was nuclear and Cassidy got one hell of a showing. Omega VS JB in a couple weeks makes sense, and then maybe we get Omega VS Cassidy 1v1 for a top level Dynamite on the way to All Out. Omega VS Hangman is still going to be my pick for All Out 2021, bringing both their relationship and Hangman’s personal AEW story full circle, but Cassidy has to get something at some point.

Stadium Stampede 2 was awesome stuff, just like last year. They said it wasn’t going to be as goofy as last year, but it was still plenty goofy with the repelling off the TIAA titantron, the theatrical chair room moment, PNP and FTR beating up Dark stars pretending to be bar goers, and so much of Jericho VS MJF. Hager and Wardlow was the most serious fight of the four, with PNP VS FTR a good second. It was cool to see Konnan and all these other cameos, tough. But in the end, it was clear the Inner Circle would win because Pinnacle stood tall, and fans really like the Inner Circle. They have good chemistry, and it’s not like them being together prevents them from going for gold. If anything, they should be even more focused on that, with PNP going for tag, Hager and/or Sammy going for TNT and of course Jericho going for the world title again.

My Score: 9.5/10

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Premier Athlete gave Sammy one hell of a challenge, but the Premier winstreak is over! Will the Spanish God reign all the way through the holidays?

 

Jurassic Express & Christian Cage speak.

This is why they gotta trust Captain Charisma on this stuff. No secrets here, the fact that his guys, Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus, are the #1 tag team contenders in AEW. But they haven’t forgotten that the Lucha Brothers beat them for that same spot months ago and then went on to beat the Young Bucks. But since then, they’ve beaten The Elite themselves, and now here we are. Momentum is so important, but it can be gone just like that. Opportunities don’t come around every day, and sometimes they never come around again. So they’re going to scout tonight’s main event, even if it doesn’t have Fenix. Everyone is a potential opponent and then they become the targets.

If it sounds like Christian is getting ahead of himself, he’s not. That’s just how confident he is in his guys. If it’s the last thing he does, he’ll make sure Jurassic Express are the next AEW Tag Team Champions! Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus are fired up, will they be ready to show Penta & Fenix who has #CeroMiedo?

 

Jade Cargill w/ Mark Sterling VS Janai Kai!

Thunder Rosa joins commentary as promised, because she wants to watch her student give #ThatBitch more than she bargained for. But will Cargill simply make her opponent an example of what’s coming for La Mera Mera in the TBS Championship Tournament?

The bell rings and Cargill doesn’t take “The Kick Demon” seriously. Cargill even dares her to take the headlock. Kai does, only for Cargill to TOSS her away, and then BOOT her right down! Cargill gets the arms, JADED! Cover, Cargill wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

That might be the fastest win in AEW history! Rosa says all Cargill knows how to do is pose around. But Cargill gets Kai up to rough her up, whip her and BOOT her down! Rosa won’t stand for that, and she runs to the ring! But Mark Sterling gets in her way, so he gets knocked down! Rosa gets in to dodge the boot and tackle Cargill! They brawl, the refs rush in to stop this! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but these two will have to wait until their tournament match! Will Rosa end Cargill’s undefeated streak to then be a finalist for the TBS Championship? Wait, Rosa gets loose and rushes back at the ring! Cargill kicks her away, who will stand tall when they finally have their match?

 

The Super Kliq speaks.

Brandon, c’mon, moron. But Adam Cole calls out Orange Cassidy for coming out while Cole was on commentary. Cassidy tried to take Cole’s spotlight, Cole’s moment, but you saw what happens! Don Callis passes by and says hey, while Cole continues that Cassidy is the laughing stock of AEW. Nick tells the Best Friends, “You think you’re tough guys? We’re tough guys! And when you bring steel chairs into the equation, that’s not gonna end well!” Matt says, “Hey, guys, I have a brilliant idea. How about the Young Bucks return to tag team action Wednesday on Dynamite.” Best Friends can bring their two best guys and we’ll see what happens. CACAW! Brandon, cut. The red button, Brandon!!

 

Eddie Kingston speaks.

“2point0, congratulations, you beat up the great Chris Jericho. And I do not care. Chris has no business to do with me, you two do. You want to beat me up after my match with Danny Garcia, you want to keep this going, you guys are gonna learn something real plain and clear. You reap what you sew, partna!” Will the Mad King break Matt Lee & Jeff Parker all by himself? Or will he need some back-up to get it done?

 

AEW looks at Bryan Danielson’s grudge against the Dark Order.

John Silver thinks this is Bryan finally showing his true colors. He doesn’t think he can beat Hangman, he’s getting insecure and just taking it out on The Dark Order. Bryan says Silver is the strongest member of the Dark Order, but the thing is, “You become the five people you spend the most time around.” Silver doesn’t spend his time around elite people. But Long Island is Silver’s home. Bryan is known for being fast, good with strikes and submissions, but Silver can do all that, too. But Bryan sees Silver running around, making jokes, being “Johnny Hungy.”

Is that making him a better wrestler? Bryan wasn’t joking around at age 30, he was winning championships. Silver wants to get a big win in his hometown, but Bryan isn’t going to let that happen. Will the American Dragon slay another hometown hero this Wednesday?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

After the challenge was thrown out, Best Friends accepted! And they’re bringing ROCKY ROMERO with them! It’ll be Young Bucks VS CHAOS as Rocky and Chuckie T step up for Dynamite!

 

Mark Henry speaks to our main eventers!

PAC, FTR hurt Rey Fenix, and PAC has one eye. How can he fight like that? Does Pac look blind to him? He’s good to go. Malakai Black will pay for what he did, but this is about Fenix. Penta adds, “Because we have Cero! Miedo!” But Cash Wheeler questions how they’re gonna get revenge for Fenix. This was supposed to be FTR getting revenge for Full Gear! Full Gear was where FTR was supposed to make history, but they were robbed! Tonight, once again, Fenix doesn’t have the huevos to show up so they rob that from FTR, too! Dax Harwood adds that this was supposed to be the marker, the night of celebration as the first-ever two-time AEW Tag Team Champions, but Fenix didn’t show up!

Things get heated, but Henry interrupts. Let’s cool off a second. There’s been enough time, it’s time for the main event! Will the Bastard and Penta take down their archenemies once and for all? Or will FTR get some semblance of revenge for what they consider an injustice?

Death Triangle w/ Alex Abrahantes VS FTR w/ Tully Blanchard!

AEW returns as Death Triangle make their entrance. The teams sort out, fans chant for “CERO MIEDO!” as Penta starts against Cash. Cash and Penta pace, approach, but Penta is wary of Dax. Cash and Penta approach, Penta trips Cash but Cash scrambles away. Penta and Cash circle, tie up, Cash headlocks then wrenches an arm. Penta trips Cash to have a spinning toehold! Penta makes Cash spread the legs but Cash scrambles away again. Fans rally behind Penta and he eggs Cash on. Cash is flustered just hearing all the “CERO MIEDO” from the fans. Penta takes off the glove, then throws it to Alex. Cash tries but he can’t intercept it!

Cash gets Penta, whips, hurdles, but Penta KICKS his monkey flip down. Tag to Pac, Penta snapmares and Death Triangle double KICK and double DROPKICK! Cash bails out and Dax calls for a timeout.

Dax stomps Pac into the ring, drags him up and bumps him off buckles. Pac fires forearms and elbows to fight out of the corner! Dax kicks low, but Pac turns suplex into cradle! But Cash distracts the ref! Death Triangle would’ve won already!! The ref finally sees, TWO!! Dax CLOBBERS Pac!

Dax drops a leg, then drags Pac by an arm. Dax whips and then catches Pac for a cobra twist! Cash reaches out, FTR forms a chain! Alex points it out, the ref looks but FTR lets go. Pac endures all the same, and then FTR reform the chain! The ref sees it this time and CLUBS it apart! Pac HIP TOSSES Dax down! Cash tags in, CLUBS Pac down and keeps him from Penta! Cash drags Pac into a cobra clutch and grinds him down. Pac endures as Cash leans on the hold. AEW returns to single picture as fans rally up and Pac fights to his feet!

Fans boo but the Dark Father stops only when he’s satisfied! Is that blood on his hands?! Has the House of Black helped break the Death Triangle completely?


My Thoughts:

What a wild episode for Rampage here. The TNT Championship match as the opener was surprising, but I didn’t see Nese winning anyway. He still gives Sammy a great match, but Sammy retains, and I’m thinking he’ll retain until Battle of the Belts on January 8th. Hopefully Miro’s gotten to have matches and has destroyed many, many men on Dynamite, and even Elevation, so that he has the momentum and the win-loss record to get a match against Sammy. Meanwhile, that was the squashiest squash match Jade Cargill or anyone has had, but we all knew she was winning anyway. Rosa VS Cargill is going to be hot stuff, but I feel like that’s going to be another Cargill win.

Good promos from Eddie Kingston, Christian Cage & Jurassic Express, the Super Kliq, John Silver and Bryan Danielson to hype up the upcoming matches. Christian calling Jurassic Express “his guys” is odd, but I guess he sees himself as a mentor to them when they were doing pretty good on their own. Though, I suppose maybe they wouldn’t have made it past the Super Kliq without him. Where’s Marko Stunt, for that matter? Bucks VS Chuck Taylor & Rocky Romero is going to be a good one, maybe we’ll get an 8 Man Tag of Super Kliq & Bobby Fish VS Cassidy, Yuta, Chuck & Rocky for the TBS premiere.

We got an awesome tag team main event, with Pac doing a great job with just one eye. The fall was still part of the match and not a shoot, I’m sure. Malakai being what screws Death Triangle over was a bit surprising, as was him going after Pac’s eye so aggressively. I feel like Malakai and Pac will have a No Disqualification style blow-off like Cody Rhodes and Andrade just had, but I wonder what kind of kayfabe damage Pac’s eyes will have at this point.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Hangman Page is here!

The AEW World Champion is joining commentary to watch this opening match while preparing for Winter is Coming in two weeks, where he’ll face the American Dragon with the title on the line!

Bryan Danielson VS Alan Angels!

AEW in Atlanta isn’t just a homecoming for Cody Rhodes, and Bryan knew it, too. He called out the Dark Order’s hometown heroes, and Number 5 stepped up! Will Angels expose some weaknesses that Hangman can pick up on? Or will he just get his head kicked in?

The bell rings, fans fire up, and Atlanta fires up for Angels. They tie up, Bryan waistlocks, full nelsons, but Angels breaks to switch. Bryan switches back, trips Angels up and has the leg for the HALF CRAB! But Angels gets the ropebreak quickly, and Bryan lets off cleanly. Bryan soaks up the heat as he points an ear to the fans. Angels storms over but Bryan uses the ropes for defense. Bryan comes back, he and Angels knuckle lock, but Bryan puts Angels in the corner. Angels dodges the forearm to CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP! Angels climbs up to rain down fists! He stops at five then flips to CHOP again! Bryan is stinging but he EuroUppers Angels off his feet!

Bryan drops knees on Angels’ head again and again, then mocks Angels to rile up the fans. Angels kicks back, but Bryan shrugs that off. Angels is in a corner, kicks again but Bryan clinches to CHOP again! And KICK! And CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP again! Bryan gets Angels back up to EuroUpper, run corner to corner and dropkick! Angels falls and Bryan soaks up the heat in Hotlanta. Bryan bumps Angels off buckles, fires off more EuroUppers, then lets off at the ref’s count before coming back for more. Fans boo as Bryan lets off again, but Bryan brings Angels up to wind up and EuroUpper, into a backslide! TWO, but Angels KICKS and CHOPS in return!

Angels forearms, Bryan shoves, Angels bobs ‘n’ weaves, but Bryan BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES into an ARMBAR! Angels scrambles to the ropebreak! Fans fire up as Bryan lets off. Bryan gets Angels up on the apron, suplexes, but Angels knees free! And then GAMANGIRIS to then springboard and shotgun dropkick Bryan out! Angels kips up and fans fire up as he builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Bryan goes into railing! Angels goes up fast to ASAI MOONSAULT Bryan down! Angels puts Bryan in, climbs up but has to jump over. Angels turns around, Bryan runs in, SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up and Hangman is loving it as Angels goes up again.

MOONSAULT FLOP! BUSAIKU KNEE!! But Bryan isn’t done here! He gets Angels’ arms and gives Angels DANIELSON STOMPS! Angels is already dazed but Bryan still isn’t done! He flees, gets the leg, HEEL HOOK!! Angels taps, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Bryan flexes as he holds on longer, but then lets go so he can gloat. Hangman is obviously upset, but Schiavone goes to the ring to interview Bryan. In two weeks, Winter is Coming 2, the world title is on the line. And Bryan looks more than ready. Bryan says he isn’t sure. Hard to tell because if that was the best Atlanta’s got, Bryan whooped his ass! And not only did Bryan kick Angels’ head in, he is pretty sure he snapped an MCL. Not that the fans understand what that means. Bryan knocked out Colt Cabana’s tooth, he just snapped Angels’ MCL, and he knows there’s a Dark Order member from Long Island, so he’ll stomp that guy’s head in, too! And then Hangman.

In Dallas, Texas, home of the Cowboys, that is where Bryan takes the AEW World Championship, and where he shows the entire world that Hangman is a one hit wonder! It isn’t Cowboy Sh*t, but Coward Sh*t! Hangman’s had enough, he gets off commentary! John Silver rushes out and says Hangman isn’t allowed to touch Bryan. But Silver sure can! And so that’s what he’ll do! Johnny Hungy rushes the ring, Bryan bails right out! “You think I’m gonna share the ring with this joke? This joke?! He’s beneath me! Just like you’re beneath me!” Bryan knows Tony Khan said they can’t make contact or Hangman will be suspended if they do.

Bryan would love to slap Hangman in front of the people, but these people don’t deserve to see that. Bryan leaves, Hangman and Silver regroup with Angels. Will things only get hotter as Winter approaches?

 

Miro… is in limbo?

“I’ve been here for weeks, trying to figure out, ‘What should I do?’ What does a man do when his weakness literally separates his head from his heart? And then the vision came to me. So my God, thank you for showing me. For teaching me. For revealing to me. What an a-hole you really are. The line has been drawn, and the Redeemer will storm the Gates of Heaven, and the floor will turn red.” Miro will bring fear. He only has two weaknesses. One he will repair, the other he will embrace. Will Miro break through by breaking those in the ring against him?

 

CM Punk VS Lee Moriarty!

The Best in the World continues to fight and prove he’s still who he is, but against the rising hybrid that is #TygaStyle, will he end up proving MJF right tonight?

Speaking of, MJF makes his way out… Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his Hanukkah themed suit joins commentary to watch this closely. He heard “PG Punk” struggled against QT Marshall last week and has turned to binge drinking. Look how haggard Punk looks right now! Excalibur defends that is not true, and the bell rings. Fans chant for Punk as he shakes hands with Moriarty. They circle, tie up, and Moriarty wrenches the arm. Punk rolls, cartwheels, wrenches and wristlocks. MJF calls Moriarty a glorified rookie, Moriarty wrenches and wristlocks to a hammerlock. Punk slips around, hammerlocks, headlocks and hits a takeover.

Moriarty headscissors, Punk moves around, MJF announces that next week, the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royale returns and promises he’ll be a threepeat winner. Punk pops out, gets the headlock, but Moriarty uses kicks to pop free. Moriarty wrenches, hammerlocks, spins and snapmares to then ghost pin! TWO, Punk gets up into an arm-drag! Moriarty has the arm-drag, MJF says this is laughable. Schiavone points out MJF barely wrestles compared to Punk. Punk grits his teeth, gets up and powers out. Moriarty runs Punk over, covers, ONE! Arm-drag! Punk fights up, puts Moriarty in the corner, lets off but RAMS his shoulder in! And again, and again! And again and again!

Fans fire up as Punk wrenches and whips Moriarty corner to corner. Moriarty goes up and over and runs but into a calf kick! Punk goes to the apron, aims as Moriarty stands, springboard FLYING CLOTHESLINE! Fans fire up and Punk flexes as AEW goes picture in picture.

Punk drags Moriarty up at the ropes, scoops and SLAMS him, then takes a moment before he brings Moriarty up for another scoop SLAM! Moriarty grits his teeth, Punk listens to the fans, and he brings Moriarty up again to scoop and SLAM again! Cover, TWO! Moriarty gets to ropes, pushes Punk away but Punk stomps him in the corner. Punk whips Moriarty corner to corner hard, and Moriarty bounces off the buckles! Punk brings Moriarty up, shoves him to ropes and headbutts low! Punk throws body shots and forearms, then even KICKS! Punk snapmares, covers, TWO! Punk wraps Moriarty up in a chinlock and body scissors. Moriarty endures as Punk pulls on an ear!

Moriarty fights up, throws elbows, gets free, but Punk gets him for more forearms. Punk runs, but Moriarty CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! AEW returns to single picture, Moriarty goes to another corner. Punk gets up, runs in but Moriarty dodges! Moriarty wrenches, TWEAKS the arm, but Punk runs in. Moriarty puts him on the apron, Punk gets in but Moriarty rallies! Moriarty runs in to uppercut in the corner! He whips, Punk reverses but Moriarty reverses back to WRING out an arm! PENALTY KICK to that arm, then he reels Punk in for a SAIDO SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Moriarty gets Punk back up, suplexes but Punk slips out.

Punk shoves Moriarty, BOOTS from a corner, then goes up to CROSSBODY from the top! Only for Moriarty to roll through! TWO, into the BONE LOCK! Punk endures, fans rally up, Punk reaches out with his legs, but Moriarty kicks the rope to keep them away. The ref reprimands, Punk reaches out again and gets the ROPEBREAK! Moriarty lets Punk go, Punk shoves him away to go to a corner. Punk kicks low, hoists Moriarty up top, then SLAPS Moriarty! Punk climbs up, MJF claims cheating, but Punk SUPER STEINERS, only for Moriarty to make it a sunset flip! TWO, Punk high stacks! TWO and Moriarty pops Punk back into the sunset! TWO!!

Punk sits, TWO! Moriarty has the sunset, TWO!! ROUNDHOUSE from Punk takes Moriarty down! Fans are thunderous while MJF claims loaded kick pad. And that he would’ve either ducked that kick or taken it like a champ. Fans rally up as Punk gets up, MJF questions why this has lasted so long. Punk drags Moriarty up, hammerlocks, blows a kiss, but Moriarty ducks the Pepsi Twist to STEAL THE PEPSI TWIST!! Basement BOOT! Moriarty gets Punk up, facelock to TWISTING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Moriarty roars, gets Punk up, suplexes, but Punk slips free to inverted suplex tot he fireman’s carry! GO TO SLEEP!! Cover, Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

MJF gets a mic to cut off Punk’s music and talk. “PG Punk. Hey buddy, good to see ya.” But last week, Punk said he was disappointed in MJF. But MJF is proud of Punk. It takes balls to come out here and claim to be Best in the World when he’s struggling to beat QT Marshall and Lee Moriarty. The only thing Punk is the best at now is trying to get in Britt Baker’s pants. What’s the matter? Punk looks unamused. Just like how Britt would look if he got her in bed. This ain’t CM Punk! This is One Punk Chump! Oh does Punk have something to say? Punk gets the mic, and responds with, “You gotta lot of nerve coming out here, talking about pants, Britt Baker’s or otherwise, when you’re clearly wearing Larry David’s pajamas.”

MJF can talk all he wants about Punk struggling with QT or Moriarty. But the fact of the matter is, those guys are better than MJF, and he knows it! Cute, Punk! No, MJF, shut up. They’ll both shut up, MJF can bring his needle dick to the ring, and Punk will kick his ass all the way to Long Island! MJF asks the fans if they want to see these two go at it. Yeah? TOO BAD! MJF says Punk needs MJF more than MJF needs Punk. MJF is the spark to a flame Punk hasn’t had since 2011! But don’t worry. MJF will show everyone what a real pro looks like when he wins the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal in the most magical place in the world, Long Island, New York!

And he will finally be among fans that he loves and appreciate and the feeling is mutual. MJF will be better than Piper in Portland, than Bret in Canada, and better than Punk in Chicago! Laugh all you want dips*its, but there will be people rocking the ‘burb, chanting his name at the top of their lungs. Speaking of loud noises, did Punk bring his dog, Larry? MJF heard him yipping in the back. If MJF were Punk, he wouldn’t bring that flea ridden, disgusting maggot of a dog around here anymore. Because if Punk does, MJF is gonna put Larry to sleep! Punk gets out of the ring and storms right up the ramp! MJF has Wardlow appear!

The refs hurry to stop this from happening, but you don’t threaten a man’s dog and get away with it! Will Punk make sure MJF is the one put out of our misery?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker and team.

The Doctor is still very upset. That is an understatement. It is disgusting that she had to wrestle after Thanksgiving, and it is disgusting that Riho cheated to get a shot at the title. Schiavone asks Jamie Hayter where she was during the Friendsgiving celebration last week. Oh, sorry, she was having one of the best matches in the TBS Championship Tournament. Which she lost. Rebel has Britt cool off, but Hayter says Britt’s best match was against Thunder Rosa, and she also lost. Free therapy, but let’s not focus on the past. This is the present, and over the holiday, the team has had their kumbaya.

Great news, Jamie Hayter will be taking on Riho next week on Dynamite in an absolute slaughter! And if there’s anything left of Riho, then she can get her shot at Britt’s title. But Britt doesn’t think it’ll happen. Yours Truly, Britt Baker, DMD.

 

Adam Cole heads to the ring!

He’ll be joining commentary momentarily, but he and Atlanta know it’s all about the BOOM! Then he leaves the ring to join Excalibur and Tony Schiavone. Cole says the show just got a lot better with him here. But he won’t let Schiavone pretend this is good. Wait, Orange Cassidy shows up? He’s not in the match that’s up next. Freshly Squeezed stares down Cole and Cole gets up. Cole and Cassidy meet halfway and fans fire up as Cassidy takes off the sunglasses. Cassidy holds up a hand to Cole’s face, then holds his hands up to put them in the pockets! But the Young Bucks are creeping up! Cole waves bye, Cassidy turns around to see the Bucks before they can superkick.

Cassidy steps up to the Bucks and fires off the shin kicks! Cole LOW BLOWS Cassidy! The Super Kliq mock Cassidy’s shin kicks with “super” kicks. Then they actually SUPERKICK him down! Cole drags Cassidy to the stage, the Super Kliq sets up, but here come the Best Friends, with chairs! Wheeler Yuta and Chuck Taylor run the Super Kliq off, but will Cole return to commentary?

 

Tony Nese speaks.

Before he was rudely interrupted last week, he was saying how Sammy Guevara doesn’t deserve to be AEW TNT Champion. Friday on Rampage, Nese changes all that and puts the title around a Premier Athlete’s waist. Sammy learned a lesson when he got in Nese’s face. And if he thought Nese kneeling on his ribs was bad, wait until Friday. Will Nese run that knee through Sammy’s head to take the title from him?

 

Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears VS ???

The Pinnacle’s War Dog is a major reason MJF is still walking right now. But will AC Adams not be so lucky here?

The bell rings, Wardlow and Adams stare down. Wardlow waits on Adams to do something, Adams shoves him. Wardlow knees low, CLUBS him down, then drags Adams up to whip to ropes. Adams ducks and dodges and kicks back, but Wardlow CLOBBERS him! Wardlow hauls Adams up, fires up and POWERBOMBS Adams down! Fans want “One More Time!” so Wardlow gets Adams up for another POWERBOMB! Wardlow isn’t satisfied, neither are the fans! Wardlow gives Adams a THIRD POWERBOMB! A FOURTH! Then a cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Spears gets in to get his chair shots in! The chair even begins to break! Spears raises Wardlow’s hand in victory, will the Pinnacle do whatever they want in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with PAC, Penta & Alex Abrahantes.

Schiavone notes that it was meant to be FTR VS The Lucha Brothers. However, an injury to Rey Fenix keeps him unable to travel, so it will be Death Triangle, Penta & PAC. Penta tells FTR in Spanish, and Alex translates, “We would’ve loved to defeat you twice in one night, but since you took it upon yourselves to hurt my brother, we’ve got the best ally that we can find in PAC.” But Pac himself has an eyepatch because Malakai Black got him with the black mist. Can he still wrestle? “Tony, Tony, Tony. Am I an invalid? I am good to fight, you understand. Look into my eye.” There’s CERO MIEDO here! Will make FTR the ones who fear what’s coming?

Billy and his boys are #Gunndefeated and Colten himself is 35-0! But The Relentless One and the Icon are undefeated as a duo in their own right! Whose streak ends in this cold Hotlanta showdown?

The teams sort out and Darby starts against Colten. Fans are fired up for Darby, he ties up with Colten then gets a waistlock.

Darby goes to an open corner but Billy drags him over to tag in Colten. The Gunns mug Darby, Colten CLUBS Darby and whips him to a corner hard! Darby gets stuck in the ropes for a moment before he flops down. Colten drags Darby to a cover, TWO! Colten clamps on a chinlock, Darby endures as Colten leans all his weight on the hold. Darby fights up, and hits a JAWBREAKER! Colten staggers, Darby crawls, but Colten stays between him and Sting.

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Alex Marvez brings up how Jericho came to Eddie Kingston’s aid, but Jericho stops that there. He didn’t save Kingston last week. Kingston was yelling and screaming that he didn’t want Jericho’s help, and so Jericho did not help Kingston. Jericho was there to go after 2point0, that’s the problem. He wanted after Daniel Garcia, Jeff Parker and “square head” Matt Lee. But then those guys run in to go after Jericho! It’s a 3v1 mugging, and they whip him into trunks! Matt gets a chair while Jeff whips Jericho into the garage door! Matt SMACKS Jericho down! They told him to watch his mouth, and this is what happens. But will 2point0 have to worry about the Inner Circle now?

 

Team Taz is on commentary.

And Taz himself says that 25% of that Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal will be Team Taz. That means they have 125% of winning because it comes down to being the final two. The numbers don’t lie, Excalibur! But wait, here comes Lio Rush! Taz thinks Lio is bitter since Dante Martin joined Team Taz just last week. Lio tells Taz, “You’re a commentator, right? So you should know me. It is literally your job to know me. And if that’s the case, you should know that I’ve had the odds stacked against me my entire career. Just like yourself.” So what’s Lio’s point? It just seems crazy to Lio that Taz has 100% of winning this thing. Because then that’s Taz insinuating Lio has 0%.

Well, they took Dante away from Lio. Dante is Team Taz now, they have the numbers. Lio says he is a fighter. Deep down, Taz knows that Lio is a fighert! Hell, the people all know Lio is a fighter! Fans fire up as Lio says he won’t go down without a fight, even if he just has 1% chance. Taz tells Lio he should just retire. Look at this! Dante walks out, Ricky Starks by his side. Team Taz is fully assembled, but will numbers mean nothing when it’s all put to the test?

 

Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling speak.

Smart Mark applauds Thunder Rosa on advancing into the semifinals of the TBS Championship Tournament. But does Rosa think she has a shot against the “uncrowned rookie of the year?” But they put out a challenge for Rampage, Cargill’s show, answered by Rosa’s student, Jinai Kai. Who? Doesn’t matter. Light work. Rosa says hold on. She is here to tell them that Jericho is not gonna be here for Rampage after what just happened. But because Rosa is multi talented, AEW asked her to sub in, and she’s of course going to watch Cargill’s match. Rosa can’t wait to see her student whoop Cargill! Rookie of the year? Shut up with that! But will Cargill just tune up before she and La Mera Mera throw down in the next round?

 

AEW TBS Championship Tournament Quarterfinals: Ruby Soho VS Kris Statlander!

The wait is finally over, the quarterfinals are coming to a close! Will the Runaway or the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien take that next step towards history?

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two circle. They tie up, fans duel, Kris wrenches and cording holds. Ruby wrenches, hammerlocks, but Kris reaches back and headlocks to a takeover. Ruby moves around, rolls to a cover, ONE! Kris holds on, Ruby fights up and Ruby pries the hold, only for Kris to hold tighter. Ruby powers out, headlocks back, but Kris powers out to scoop. Ruby tilt-o-whirls through but Kris blocks the leg sweep. Ruby wants the backslide now but Kris fights that, too! Ruby spins Kris, shows haymaker but Kris ducks! Ruby holds back, and fans cheer as the two reset.

Ruby and Kris tie up, Kris waistlocks, headlocks, grinds Ruby down but Ruby powers up. Kris holds on tight, then whips Ruby, but Ruby crucifix to a sunset flip! Kris rolls through but she holds off on the boot to boop! Ruby gets up in a huff, but she cools off to tie up with Kris again. Kris whips, Ruby comes back to a roll-up, TWO! Kris cradles, TWO! Ruby runs in, no monkey flip as Kris blocks! Kris slingshots Ruby off ropes but now Ruby monkey flips, only for Kris to handstand! Fans fire up as the two stand off again. Ruby blocks the boop to arm-drag! Ruby runs, Kris dodges, Ruby wheelbarrows and arm-drags!

Ruby runs in at the corner, Kris dodges but Ruby goes up the corner for a FLYING ARM-DRAG! Ruby keeps it moving, as she spins Kris for a COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Ruby keeps cool but fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ruby brings Kris up, facelock for a suplex, but Kris blocks. Kris suplexes but Ruby blocks. They fight for control, they each get closer and closer, but Kris powers Ruby up and holds her there for a count of 10, then SLAM! Cover, TWO! Kris gets the arms and has a motorcycle stretch on Ruby. Ruby endures the knee in her back, fights her way up, but Kris keeps the hold on. Ruby turns things around and has the motorcycle stretch on Kris, knee in the back included! Kris endures, fights up, turns things back to arm-drag Ruby away! Ruby keeps moving, Kris hurdles but Ruby waistlocks. Kris bucks the O’Conner Roll and dodges Ruby to POWERSLAM!

But Ruby avoids the senton to BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Both women are down and fans fire up! A standing count starts as AEW returns to single picture. Ruby gets to a corner and stands at 6. Kris runs in but into an STO! Ruby goes up, leaps, SUPER SENTON! Cover, TWO! Kris survives, Ruby seethes and mule kicks Kris down! Cover, TWO! Ruby grows frustrated, she drags Kris up, reels Kris in, but Kris fights the suplex with punches! Kris runs but Ruby yanks her back and runs to wheelbarrow, but Kris makes it a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Kris fires up and fans rally behind her. Kris drags Ruby by a leg, hooks her up and has the SPIDER CRAB STRETCH!

Ruby endures, but she fights to headscissor. But Kris deadlifts to BUCKLE BOMB her instead! Fisherman for the SPINNING BUSTER!! Cover, TWO!?! Ruby survives and Kris can’t believe it! Kris drags Ruby up, shoves her to a corner, then runs corner to corner to forearm smash! Then side to side, into Ruby’s elbow! Ruby forearms, headbutts, then SUPERKICKS Kris to a corner! Ruby fires off forearm after forearm, but Kris shoves her away. Ruby ducks and goes up, but no Nightshade as Kris blocks! Kris has Ruby in the Electric Chair, but Ruby is fighting! POISON-RANA, and the SPIKE-RANA!! Cover, TWO?!? And Ruby’s completely shocked!

Fans are loving “A E DUB!” for this one as Ruby drags Kris up. Ruby wrenches, but Kris blocks the kick! Roll and gut wrench, victory roll from Ruby! RUBY WINS!!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

The Runaway has fought her way into the next round! But they still respect each other and hug it out. Kris is the only one with a first round bye to lose, is this a sign that Ruby has what it takes to become champion? Or will Nyla Rose just be the wall in the way of Destination Unknown? Wait, Vickie Guerrero is on stage? She talks trash to Kris, and Nyla rushes into the ring to YANK Ruby off the corner! Kris rushes back in to run Nyla off, but will Ruby be the one to get revenge on the Native Beast?

 

Atlanta Street Fight: Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS Andrade El Idolo w/ Jose!

Things have only escalated between the American Nightmare and the Face of Latinos, and a hammerlock DDT to bare concrete is why they’re throwing away the rules here in Hotlanta! But will Andrade really look to spill the hometown hero’s blood just to settle the score?

Cody makes his entrance, with Coach Arn by his side, but Andrade and even Jose rush them! Arn falls into the gap between stage and ramp! Andrade and Cody brawl down the ramp, then they fight through the gap between ramp and railing. Cody kicks low and bumps Andrade off railing, while Arn is up and throwing hands on Jose! Arn starts sending Jose back through the tunnel, while Cody SPLASHES Andrade with someone’s drink! Andrade returns the favor and SPLASHES Cody with someone else’s drink! They make their way to the backside of the railing and to the upper bleachers, and Cody chucks the trashcan at Andrade!

Cody BOOTS Andrade, bumps Andrade off more railing, Atlanta is on Cody’s side as he throws haymakers and elbows. Cody hops up onto the railing, fans fire up as he MOONSAULTS! Direct hit and down goes Andrade! Cody sits Andrade up to punch him in the head, then he brings Andrade up, only for Andrade to shove him into railing.

Atlanta is thunderous as Cody drags Andrade up to RAM him into railing. Andrade CHOPS back! Cody CHOPS Andrade, then puts him in the ring. Fans are fired up, so is Cody, but Andrade shoves him into a corner! Andrade runs in, Cody goes up and over to POWRESLAM! Off comes the weight belt, but Andrade LOW BLOWS Cody! All legal in a Street Fight! Andrade grabs the weight belt now and has a sinister grin! Andrade LASHES Cody with the belt! Then he tosses it to the fans for a free souvenir! Andrade then hurries to his bag of tricks, and he brings out handcuffs! But then, he brings out Jose’s laptop! HEADSHOT with the screen!

Andrade picks up pieces of the laptop to SMACK Cody with it! Cody bails out, Andrade does, too. Andrade finds the chair Cody was using, and he bring sit over, to SMACK Cody down! Andrade then brings out chain from under the ring! And a trash can lid, too. Cody crawls to get the chain while Andrade keeps bringing things out. He brings out a TABLE! But he decides not to, the fans liked it too much. Andrade gets up, Cody rushes over but Andrade hotshots him away! Andrade gets the chain to LASH, but Cody dodges!

Cody is busted open, but Andrade reels him in! Hammerlock, but Cody back drops out! Andrade falls on bare concrete!

The ref puts out the flames, medics check on both men, but the Nightmare Family stands tall! These two quite literally burned it down, but will this put things to rest for Cody and Andrade? Or are things only heating up from here?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode! First off, we at the Chairshot all wish Jim Ross well as he starts his treatment for skin cancer. We got great guest commentators, and it all tied in with story each time. Hangman watching the great Bryan VS Angels match was logical, and again Bryan continues to win with whatever move he wants. They could’ve done better to give us the “hold harmless agreement” part of this, though maybe that was on social media. But it was a good layer in story, and John Silver coming out to go after Bryan was great, too. Bryan VS Silver is going to be a great go-home match to Winter is Coming 2 on the 15th. But while the title match is on a themed episode, I don’t see Hangman losing so soon.

Miro is taking things to a new level with his promos, and I guess we’re finally going to get that path of destruction he was talking about that AEW didn’t give him before. I again say Miro should be showing up on episodes of Elevation wrecking people. MJF watching Punk VS Moriarty was logical, and what a great match for Moriarty. MJF and Punk having another promo showdown was alright, but it’s hard to follow up last week’s. MJF threatening Punk’s dog was maybe a bit much, and I’m not even sure the point of him saying Punk wants to get with Britt Baker. I really hope  MJF loses this year’s Dynamite Diamond Ring matches so it takes away his ace in the hole.

Good dysfunction tease for Team Britt. I feel like it isn’t quite as squashed as Britt says, but I’m thinking Riho gets the better of them again and wins over Hayter. The Team Taz and Lio Rush bit was good stuff. Taz dropping his own take on Steiner Math was random, but maybe to poke fun at NXT for constantly doing Steiner references with Bron Breakker. I have a feeling Lio will get the better of Team Taz until it comes down to facing Dante. Maybe someone in Team Taz wins the Dynamite Diamond Ring, like Ricky Starks so he can add it to having the FTW Championship. Meanwhile, a damn shame Fenix got hurt again. But Pac and Penta will have a great match with FTR in his place.

The Super Kliq and Best Friends moment was great stuff, and I hope this becomes a Six Man Tag for Winter is Coming. It’s a pretty decent move for Cole & The Bucks since Jurassic Express is moving onto the tag title chase, as soon as the tag champs aren’t busy with FTR. Jericho getting jumped by 2point0 is of course the next step in the story with Jericho and Kingston perhaps teaming up. Tony Nese has a decent promo, but he’s still losing that TNT Championship match on Rampage. The Gunn Club VS Darby & Sting tag match was great stuff, but naturally Darby & Sting win. No idea where it goes from here, Darby & Sting don’t have a third for a Six Man Tag where Austin joins in.

Cargill, Sterling and Rosa had a good promo segment, but pretty sure Cargill wins on Rampage. And even then, I’m thinking Cargill wins against Rosa. Soho VS Statlander here tonight was awesome stuff, certainly both their best match in AEW. Soho winning makes sense, she was basically the underdog here and is again the underdog against Nyla Rose. Soho VS Nyla is going to be great stuff, too, I wonder if AEW is going to find a way to push this to the TBS change episode on January 5th. The first episode on TBS crowning the inaugural TBS Champion, makes sense from a marketing standpoint.

And of course, Cody Rhodes in the main event! It was pretty wild stuff, like Arn shoot falling backwards off the ramp. I did not think Jose would even give him a good fight but Jose comes back so he could take the golden shove shot. Cody is tongue in cheek teasing all of us with these references to Triple H and everything HHH has been guilty of in terms of backstage politicking and onscreen burying. Brandi being the catalyst for maybe not so much Cody’s win but certainly escalating things in an attempt to get the fans marking out. No idea where this goes, either, other than perhaps one more match with Malakai.

How do they escalate from a burning table, though? Cody always bleeds, too, so would it have to be something close to the Omega VS Moxley Unsanctioned match from Full Gear a couple years ago.

My Score: 9/10
