Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston VS Kenny Omega & MT Nakazawa w/ Don Callis!

The Maniac and Mad King have many reasons for wanting a grudge match with the Cleaner and his crew. But “The Invisible Hand” demands a proper introduction. We have legends in NJPW like Anoki, Okada, Ibushi and Nakazawa, but Kenny Omega cannot attend tonight. That’s a bold faced lie! Callis says Nakazawa will do this ALONE!? “You got this, you’re fine!” Does he? Or is Nakazawa a sacrificial lamb to protect the AEW World Champion?

OH WAIT! Kenny attacks from the crowd! He CLOBBERS Moxley, then Kingston! Omega puts Kingston in for Nakazawa to stomp away on! The bell rings, this is still a tag match, and Nakazawa throws down hands on Kingston. Nakazawa uses his headset to CHOKE Kingston! Omega tags in, he throws hands on Kingston then tags Nakazawa. They mug Kingston, fans boo, and then they put Kingston in a corner They whip corner to corner, Kanazawa runs in to elbow, then Omega runs in to body block!

Omega whips Moxley, Mox reverses and gets a SCRAPBUSTER! Omega bails out, Nakazawa hurries over, Moxley DIVES to take them both down! Fans fire up with Mox as he and Kingston high-five. They get Omega up and whip him into railing, then Kingston fires off headbutts on Nakazawa. Moxley keeps on Omega with haymakers, bumps him off railing, and Kingston brings Nakazawa over for fists. They bump Nakazawa off the apron, put him back in the ring, and drags Nakazawa up to put in a corner. Kingston whips Moxley for Moxley to whip Kingston in to splash!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

The Cleaner refused to see this through, and that’s why he lost! But wait! Here come the Young Bucks! Matt & Nick Jackson, wearing romp-hims for some reason, are telling Mox and Kingston what’s in store for them! But not from the Bucks, but from the GOOD BROTHERS! Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson attack Mox and Kingston from behind! They’re not dressed much better but The Elite has the number advantage here as they mug Moxley and Kingston! Gallows and Anderson get Mox up for the MAGIC KILLER! They stomp Kingston down then set Moxley up for the Bucks. Matt slaps Moxley around with a loafer, then BARE FOOT SUPERKICKS him!

Omega arrogantly returns as they get Kingston back up. Omega wants us to see this one! Electric Chair lift, for the ONE WINGED ANGEL!! They mockingly count the pin, and Omega “wins!” The Elite are standing tall, but will this only anger Moxley more?

The British boxing medalist drapes his country’s flag over the American Nightmare. Will Ogogo be in store for a fight of his own?

 

“Backstage” interview with Scorpio Sky & Ethan Page.

Alex Marvez is interrupted as Scorpio asks, “Riddle me this, riddle me that, who is afraid of the big black bat?” Sting is a mosquito that sucks the blood of this company! And you know what happens to mosquitos: you kill them! So listen up, “Steve.” You’ve overstayed your welcome! Showtime’s over! Scorpio’s the franchise now, BITCH! And Ethan Page says he and Darby Allin have a very storied past, but no one wants to talk about matches no one’s seen. So let’s skip the in-ring history and go right to Darby’s medical history! That face paint isn’t war paint, no. That’s covering up a dent Ethan put in Darby’s forehead! And the metal in Darby’s arm is also because of All Ego!

Why does everyone look at Darby like he’s an unsolvable riddle? Ethan has the answers- WHOA! Darby blindsides Ethan and brawls with Scorpio! There’s a brawl in the top level of the bleachers! Scorpio whips but Darby reverse to send him into railing! Darby dodges Ethan’s shoulder tackle to send him into floor signs! Darby goes up a ladder, just to LEAP off with a COFFIN DROP!! But Scorpio SMACKS Darby with a trash can! Scorpio kicks Darby and clubs him, then Ethan adds on! They mug Darby by the stairs, and grind his face into the spikes on Ethan’s Louis Vattons! Ethan says he is the final nail in Darby’s coffin! Ethan THROWS Darby down the stairs!!!

Fans boo as Ethan and Scorpio watch Darby writhe and clutch an arm! Medics hurry up there and check on him, but is this the end of the Relentless TNT Champion?

AEW is picture in picture as Darby tries to get up but just can’t. The medic checks him for concussion and broken bones. It’s hard to say without audio how Darby is doing but he’s fortunate to still be conscious. Perhaps there will be a diagnosis, after the break.

 

Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Julia Hart!

The Doctor is ready for Double or Nothing, but isn’t going to pass up competing on a night as big as this one. After all, she’s the Role Model of the AEW Women’s Division. Will young Julia Hart learn a thing or two from the #1 contender?

The bell rings, Britt circles with Julia, not even taking Julia seriously. They tie up, Britt kicks low, and then she pie faces Julia around. Julia pie faces back! Britt ROCKS Julia, whips her to ropes, but Julia reverses and dodges, but runs into a SLINGBLADE! Britt smiles as she gest the glove already! Britt drags Julia around by her hair but Julia pushes her away! Britt ROCKS Julia, Alabama lifts and tucks Julia in for an AIR RAID CRASH! Britt covers, but lets off at ONE! Britt drags Julia around into the Rings of Saturn, and the LOCKJAW! Julia taps, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission

Britt takes a bow because she’s still at the top of the charts! Will she have to put in a bit more effort if she’s to become champion?

 

AEW presents the return of Technique By Taz!

Taz talks about Christian Cage’s frog splash and Killswitch. Christian gets good air, but looking at his legs, there is a lack of explosion in the quads, reducing the amount of impact. And in the Killswitch, he failed several times because as he was turning, he had inconsistent footwork. Christian did manage to hit it on Frankie Kazarian eventually, but Will Hobbs throws Christian off easily time and again in their match. That means he has a long way to go if he faces someone like Brian Cage. Taz clearly has some bias here, but does he have a point?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships #1 Contender Fatal 4 Way: SoCal Uncensored VS Jurassic Express VS The Acclaimed VS The Varsity Blondes!

Next week, the Young Bucks are facing someone, with the titles on the line! And while Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian are #1 in the rankings, they still have to earn their shot! Can SCU get through the other three top teams in AEW? Or will someone else leap frog over them to get at Matt & Nick Jackson?

The Acclaimed make their entrance last so that Max Caster can riff on all his opponents! “It’s the Acclaimed, two sexy kids, about to make Daniels quit the wrestling biz! Varsity Blonds, you’re a temporary thing. In 10 years, you’ll be on Dark Side of the Ring. Jungle, I slap you, like you John Stossel. Luchasaurus, I’m a turn you to a fossil! Acclaimed is up, we gonna take the tag belts off those two young cucks! I said it.” AEW, the Acclaimed have arrived, but will they be leaving with golden tickets to next week?

In this kind of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal so JB and Kaz start. They tie up, JB waistlocks, Kaz drops to get a trip, and he rolls JB back to clamp on a facelock. JB slips out, headlocks, Kaz powers out but headlocks back. JB powers out but Kaz runs him over. Things sped up, Kaz blocks a hip toss but so does JB. Kaz waistlocks and O’Conner Rolls, TWO! Kaz comes back to jackknife but JB bridges up to spin and backslide! TWO, Kaz hammerlocks for La Magistrol, TWO! JB has the ghost pin, TWO! Fans cheer this opening exchange as the two reset, but Caster tags off of JB!

Fans boo but now Brian Pillman Jr. tags in off Kaz! BPJ wants after Platinum for that Dark Side crack! Kaz ROCKS BPJ for it! Griff Garrison goes after Kaz, JB and Caster throw hands, everyone else gets in to brawl with each other! Daniels and Kaz brawl with the Blonds outside, JB clotheslines Bowens and Luchasaurus whips Caster to BOOT him down! AEW goes picture in picture as the chaos continue!

Griff ROCKS Daniels, BPJ SUPERKICKS Luchasaurus! Griff gets in to BOOT JB, and now the Blonds have control! BPJ CHOPS Caster, whips him to the corner and run sin to clothesline then CHOP! Tag to Griff, they CLUB Caster’s arm, and Griff wrenches to then tag BPJ in. BPJ CLUBS the arm, tags Griff, and they whip Caster for a DROPKICK SPINEBUSTER COMBO! Cover but Kaz breaks it! Kaz shoves Caster to the corner, Daniels tags in and Daniels BLASTS BPJ as AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Bowens is legal, but he tags to Caster. Bowens shoves Daniels to mule kick him, Caster front kicks, then Bowens BULLDOGS and Caster BASEMENT DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Another, TWO! Caster clamps onto Daniels with a chinlock and grinds him down. Fans boo Caster and rally for “S C U! S C U!” Daniels gets up, Caster CLUBS him on the back, and tags Bowens to feed Daniels to a GAMANGIRI! Caster hits a BIG back suplex and Bowens covers, TWO! Bowens is annoyed, he drags Daniels up to CHOP him down. Bowens whips Daniels back into the corner, and Caster gets a cheap shot in!

Bowens whips Daniels out then in again, Daniels dodges Caster’s cheap shot to elbow him off the apron! Daniels BOOTS Bowens, then hits an STO! Both men are down, fans fire up, and Luchasaurus tags in off the Fallen Angel! Luchasaurus DECKS Daniels then CLOBBERS The Acclaimed! Luchasaurus fires off, CHOPS and kicks, AX KICK for Bowens! Luchasaurus fires off hands then hits a GERMAN SUPLEX! BPJ tags in but the Blonds both run into choke grips! CHOKE SLAM for BPJ, CHOKE SLAM puts Griff on BPJ! Luchasaurus gets Kaz but Kaz throws hands! Kaz fires off haymakers and CHOPS, but runs into a pop-up toss!

Luchasaurus choke grips Kaz, brings him to the ropes, and CHOKE SLAMS him on the Blonds on the outside! The Acclaimed regroup, Luchasaurus TAIL WHIPS Caster, ROUNDHOUSES Bowens, and calls to JB! Tag to Jungle Boy, they each fireman’s carry a member of The Acclaimed! DEATH VALLEY for Bowens, BURNING HAMMER puts Caster on Bowens! JB covers, Daniels breaks it in time! Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Daniels, BOOTS Kaz, but Kaz dumps Luchasaurus out! Daniels CLUBS Luchasaurus, BPJ tags in to FLYING CLOHTESLINE JB! Cover, TWO!!! JB survives and BPJ is furious! BPJ gets JB up, suplexes, but JB slips out to waistlock. BPJ switches and shoves, JB LARIATS!

JB hurries up top, but Daniels trips him up! Daniels kicks Luchasaurus and leaps for a TORNADO COMPLETE SHOT! JB resets but Kaz CLUBS him down! Kaz tags in, Oklahoma Rolls BPJ, TWO! Kaz fires off kicks and a LARIAT on BPJ, but JB springboards! Kaz dodges, JB DECKS Bowens but Kaz CLOBBERS JB! BPJ rolls Kaz up, TWO!! BPJ wants Kaz to stand, and he SUPERKICKS him to a corner! BPJ CHOPS and wrenches, whips but Kaz reverses! BPJ goes up, gets caught, BEST MELTZER EVER!!! Cover, SCU WINS!!

Winners: SoCal Uncensored, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contenders to the AEW Tag Team Championships)

Undefeated since December, and this could be a run to remember! Will Daniels & Kaz take those titles from their former friends? Or will the Bucks be the reason The Addiction calls it quits?

 

Next week, the IWGP United States Championship is defended on Dynamite!

Jon Moxley has had this belt since January of 2020, defeating Lance Archer, Minoru Suzuki and Kenta. But now, Moxley wants Yuji Nagata! Blue Justice accepted his challenge, and is coming back to the US to take this title back to NJPW! Moxley has been hearing the messages, how Nagata has called him a “little punk.” Moxley came to Nagata with respect, invited him to Dynamite with respect, and wanted to share the ring with a legend! But no matter how long you’ve been in this business, even a legend can learn something. And Nagata will learn that his mouth can get him in trouble against the baddest sumbitch in the game!

Moxley vows to squeeze the air out of Nagata and dump him on his head! “When is Yuji Nagata finally just not gonna get back up again?” Moxley says that moment is drawing closer. Once the bell rings, Moxley has no respect for anyone. What happens when we witness pro-wrestling history?!

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Kenny Omega.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to announce a big match coming up for our next Pay-Per-View, Double or Nothing, on May 30th.” So please welcome back the AEW World Champion, “the man who has all the gold right now,” Kenny Omega! The AAA Mega Champion, TNA Champion, Impact World Champion and of course AEW World Champion has his pack mule- er, friend, Nakazawa, carry the golden luggage for him as he walks out on stage. In all the years Schiavone has covered wrestling, he hasn’t seen a man with four world titles. Omega appreciates being talked up, but how many people here are ready for Blood & Guts?! Pretty much everyone!

How many people are here for an exciting match known as Blood & Guts?! Everyone! Well, that makes one of us. As we can see, Omega is very busy. He has the gold around his waist, he has gold around Nakazawa’s waist and arms, because Omega has been collecting gold all over the world! And now it has come to pass: the match to decide who will have “the most coveted prize in all of professional wrestling.” Omega is not here for fun and games, and barely wants to be here any longer than he has to, so Schiavone, please give us the announcement.

The announcement is that next week, the top two contenders to the AEW World Championship will go 1v1! PAC VS Orange Cassidy, with the winner moving on to Double or Nothing! Now see, this is what makes AEW so exciting! Wins and losses matter, which is why the #1 wrestler, PAC, a man that’s beaten Omega in the past and made him tap out and even pinned him in tag matches, Omega understands we want to see Pac VS Omega, two of the greatest wrestlers ever! So jeez, get to the point, make it Omega VS Pac for Double or Nothing! Say it, Schiavone! No, it’s Pac or Orange Cassidy. And speaking of, here IS Orange Cassidy!

Fans go nuts for Freshly Squeezed as Cassidy shoulder leans Schiavone. Wait, wait, wait. Omega is laughing. “Pac or who?” Orange Cassidy! Omega laughs even harder. Pac or this guy? No. Omega tells Schiavone he’ll handle this. “I understand what you mean for this company. I see people with hands in their pockets everywhere I go. I see little children dressing like Orange Cassidy for Halloween parties. I see junior high school students, high school students, dressed up like Orange Cassidy for their sock hops because they think it’s cool.

“I understand what you are: a feel-good wrestler. You’re popular. People love to want to be like you because they CAN! But they can never be like someone like me. And someone like you will never be championship material.” Fans boo that idea. Omega continues by saying, “In fact, the only thing championship material about you is something that you’ve clearly ripped off from me.” The sunglasses! Omega takes those from Cassidy, and says he fancies himself a “shades guy,” too. He made it popular, after all. What are these, anyway? Ray Bans? That’s legit. Limited edition, Freshly Squeezed, huh? What are these? $800? $1000?

Omega will say one thing: Cassidy will never take the title. But he will take up Omega’s valuable time. And thus, he’s taking these glasses from Cassidy. And he puts them on Nakazawa! They don’t really fit Nakazawa’s head but Omega likes how it looks. Omega gets in Cassidy’s face again and says he might be crazy, but those glasses look way better on Nakazawa. Oh, and compared to Cassidy, Nakazawa is more of a champion than him! So Omega VS Cassidy? Don’t count on it! See Cassidy in 10 years when he’s a fully grown adult! Until then, see him whenever, and they can talk about whatever. Later, dork! Omega mocks Cassidy, but will Cassidy make Omega the butt of the joke?

 

AEW returns and Miro speaks!

“I told the world that nobody’s gonna detract my destiny. I warned the locker room, you got a title, you got a problem!” Miro says the problem is here to collect. He has a contract, signed and states that in seven days, he has a date with destiny! Next week live, AEW Dynamite, Darby Allin and the TNT Championship are Miro’s! You can throw yourself off whatever you want, but there’s no avoiding this! Miro makes Schiavone read the contract, and it says that if Darby can’t participate, he’ll forfeit the title! Miro says he doesn’t want a forfeit, he doesn’t want a hand-out. Miro wants Darby to show up. healthy or not, it doesn’t matter because it won’t matter to Darby either.

In seven days, the world finds out when “the man who doesn’t mind dying meets the man who doesn’t mind killing him!” Strong words from the Best Man, but will he get to break through in AEW by taking the TNT Championship?

 

Blood & Guts: The Inner Circle VS The Pinnacle!

FINALLY, this match makes its debut in AEW! The parley between these factions decided that MJF’s team will have advantage, but Sammy Guevara dares them all to bring it on! Only once all 10 men are in the double cage will this match truly begin, and the only way to win is to make someone tap out or completely give up! There will be violence and pain, there will be suffering and sadism, but who will survive to say they are on the top of AEW’s mountain?

AEW returns as The Inner Circle make their entrance, ready to be the inmates of this asylum! The fans are singing Judas for Jericho as he and his team are about to do something truly brutal. Sammy steps up as promised, and he starts against Dax Harwood. The doors are closed behind them, and Sammy LEAPS from ring to ring to take Dax down! Sammy fires off hands, Dax shoves him away but Sammy rallies with big clotheslines! Sammy whips to back drop Dax! Dax kicks back, headlocks, but Sammy powers out. Dax runs Sammy over, things speed up, Sammy hurdles and back flips to dropkick Dax down!

Sammy fires off on Dax, whips again but Dax reverses to SPINEBUSTER! Cover but it doesn’t matter this early anyway!

Dax is bleeding from the forehead, Sammy CLOBBERS him into the ring!

The five minutes is now 30 seconds as Sammy almost drags Dax’s tights off. Dax elbows him away but Sammy ENZIGURIS back! Dax staggers up into Sammy’s springboard CUTTER! Time’s up, here comes Shawn Spears with a CHAIR! Sammy intercepts the Chair Man and they brawl! Sammy shoves, runs but into a POP-UP SPINEBUSTER! Spears puts the chair in a corner, gets Sammy up and brings him over. Sammy fires hands first! Dax gets Sammy and Sammy fights 2v1! CHAIRSHOT to the head!! Spears stands over Sammy with an almost euphoric look as fans boo. Spears drags Sammy over to stomp him down.

Ortiz throws the chair into Spears and dropkicks him down! Ortiz and Dax fire off, Dax whips but Ortiz rolls to come back and CLOBBER Dax! Ortiz stomps Spears, has the chair to SMACK Dax, then gets the other chair to JAM it into Spears’ chin and throat! Ortiz aims at Dax again for a CHAIR TOSS! Ortiz chokes Dax, does Dax regret daring The Inner Circle to bring this Ortiz back?! Spears and Sammy glare at each other, springboard up, and they teeter up top!

Sammy and Spears brawl for control, Ortiz CHAIRSHOTS Spears! Sammy hits a SPRINGBOARD SPANISH FLY!! Ortiz and Dax fire off on each other, fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Dax whips, Ortiz reverses, Sammy springboards but stumbles, still falling into Dax! Sammy is bleeding, Ortiz CLUBS Spears!

Cash springboards to CLOBBER Ortiz off spears! Then Cash drags Sammy from Dax and hammers away! Spears and FTR turn the tables with Danielson Stomps!

Ortiz is FTR’s victim for the MIND BREAKER!! Spears gets Sammy up to RAM him into steel! Santana shakes the cage to coach Ortiz but Cash digs Ortiz into the steel, right where Santana is! Sammy is TOSSED to that side now, and then Spears drags Sammy over. FTR keeps Ortiz down as Spears puts Sammy in a SHARPSHOOTER! Ortiz gets a Gory Especial, and GORY BOMB into the steel! Sammy can only suffer, but now the time is up! Inner Circle sends in Santana! Santana BOOTS Spears down, fires hands off on FTR back and forth, and fans are thunderous! Santana hammers away on Cash, DECKS Spears, but Cash kicks low!

Cash whips, Santana reverses for an URENAGE! Dax runs in, but into a BIG back suplex! Santana paces around as AEW goes picture in picture!

Dax stomps Santana while Spears stands on Sammy’s head. The countdown is done, and here comes WARDLOW! First off, of course MJF is going to wait for last. Second, the big behemoth of The Pinnacle is staring at Ortiz. Ortiz stares back, and Sammy and Santana join in. All three go after Wardlow! Wardlow fights them all off and even TOSSES Sammy!

MJF tells Inner Circle to give up or he’s throwing Jericho off!! Hager tries to get at them from below, PNP go from the outside, Sammy says MJF has to stop! Sammy is saying they give up!?!? The Pinnacle wins?!?

Winner: The Pinnacle, by surrender

MJF grins as he wins the war, but at what cost? MJF sold out his humanity just to settle things with Jericho, and he looks like he still might do it! MJF stands Jericho up, assures us he won’t, and then he shoves Jericho down!! Jericho crashes down through the stage!! The Inner Circle shouts for medics, somehow Jericho is conscious, and MJF says, “THANK YOU.” MJF did as he promised in shoving Jericho off the top of the wrestling world and taking that spot for his own. But to think he’d shove Jericho off this steel mountain and down to the valley below. Is MJF unstoppable now that he’s won the most violent match in the most heinous way?


My Thoughts:

An awesome night for AEW, even without Blood & Guts. Now, if you’re not much for hardcore type matches like that, that’s totally understandable. And especially tonight, they did a ton of blood for this, and almost a little too much, but it was all still a very good adaptation of the WarGames formula. Having a lid on the cage was a good alteration, it made it more like a Hell in a Cell and of course made that finish possible. I knew from the beginning of the night that the stage was given a huge crash pad, but I didn’t expect it to be Jericho falling onto it. There were some sloppier, scarier parts in that match, but I’d chalk that to Wardlow, Sammy and Hager being rusty from not even having Dark matches.

The Inner Circle dominated the later half of the match so much, I should’ve figured they were losing, though. Jericho again puts over the younger guy he knows is money, and MJF looks like a real monster doing that even after he won. And while the singles titles are called for, MJF is definitely in line for whichever one he wants after this. We got great promos to set up things for the next few weeks and Double or Nothing just before Blood & Guts, too. Miro puts Darby Allin on notice, after Darby has that great brawl with Scorpio & Ethan, and surely Darby will be competing next week. Next week may be the night Darby’s last night as TNT Champion so that he can have a tag match with Scorpio & Ethan.

Cody VS QT was very good, even if it feels too soon to me. But as such, I should’ve figured Cody would win. Why? Because he’s Cody. QT should’ve faced Dustin tonight in just as good of a singles match, Cody returns, we get what we got last week here tonight with the brawl by the bus, and then we set up Cody VS QT for Double or Nothing in something huge. But Cody VS Ogogo isn’t a bad move, either, though there’s a hint of USA VS Not USA, a cliché I thought AEW was going to avoid so as not to be like WWE. I feel like Cody might actually put Ogogo over to build Ogogo up, but that’s a 50-50 shot to me.

Omega laughing at the idea that Orange Cassidy could be his challenger actually makes me think Cassidy is exactly doing that for Double or Nothing. PAC VS Cassidy is a great rematch in its own right, and Cassidy is definitely a fan favorite, as Omega brings up. Omega VS Cassidy will definitely be Cassidy’s best match in AEW, perhaps his entire career, and fans are going to hate Omega for perhaps screwing Cassidy during the match. There was a lot with the tag grudge match that makes me think Moxley and Kingston are moving into the tag division to take on the Good Brothers and the Bucks, titles optional, but that’d be pretty great for Moxley to become the first to have held AEW World and AEW Tag Team gold.

Speaking of, the Fatal 4 Tag to pick challengers was a really great match, especially for a Fatal 4 Tag. I criticized SCU for not getting as much drama out of their “titles or bust” story from December to now, but it has reached the result I knew it would have and should have. Bucks VS SCU is going to be instant classic material, provided they don’t have the Elite interfere. Either result is big and comes with big possibilities for after, but The Elite has story even without titles, and SCU carrying the belts for a bit (Kaz becoming the only two-time AEW tag champ) would really help the division. Double or Nothing could have a Bucks VS Mox & Kingston match and a tag title match separately to really beef up an already big card.

My Score: 9.3/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/9/22)

Best Friends get Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Whatever.

Before entering the AEW Trios Championship Tournament, Best Friends are in action, in separate matches! Will tonight’s Dark be Freshly Squeezed?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 8 Man Tag: Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Isaiah Broner, Brayden Lee, James Alexander & Sam Moore; Private Party, Butcher & Blade win.
  • Anna “Jay A.S.” w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Megan Meyers; Anna wins.
  • Best Friends w/ Danhausen VS Rohit Raju & Ren Jones; Best Friends win.
  • Evil Uno & Preston Vance VS Peter Avalon & JD Drake; Uno & Vance win.
  • Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Heather Reckless & Joseline Navarro; Shafir & Nyla win.
  • Kris Statlander VS Sierra; Statlander wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss, Zack Clayton & Xavier Walker; The Trustbusters win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Ruby Soho, Athena & Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb, Leva Bates & Emi Sakura; Soho, Athena & Shida win.
  • Orange Cassidy VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Cassidy wins.

QUICK NOTES

So it seems Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux & Slim J are a trio now under The Trustbusters name. Good to see Sonny Kiss back in action but Kiss, Clayton & Walker aren’t winning that one. And I’m still wondering if The Wingmen are really a thing with JD Drake also spending time with Anthony Henry as the Workhorsemen. For that matter, why wasn’t it Best Friends VS The Wingmen in a 3v3? Or are they going to use that as an easy win in the opening round of the AEW Trios Championship Tournament?

Columbus gets Elevated!

AEW Elevation Coverage

Elevation has CERO MIEDO!

Before AEW Dynamite: Quake by the Lake and their Tornado Tag match, the Lucha Brothers tune up against The Wingmen in a standard 2v2!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Ruby Soho & Skye Blue VS Megan Myers & Nikki Victory; Soho & Blue win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ Ari Daivari VS Casey Carrington; Boudreaux wins.
  • Athena VS Queen Aminata; Athena wins.
  • Kiera Hogan & Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Freya States & Alice Crowley; Kiera & Leila win.
  • John Silver & Alex Reynolds VS T.U.G Cooper & Lord Crewe; Silver & Reynolds win.
  • The Lucha Bros w/ Alex Abrahantes VS The Wingmen; The Lucha Bros win.

QUICK NOTES

One thing to note is that Parker Boudreaux has Ari Daivari in his corner. I wonder if the Trust Busters is becoming a trio, Parker joining Daivari and Slim J. Then in Kiera and Leila teaming up, this is the one time where “Can they coexist?” should be a thing since The Baddies still haven’t fully accepted Leila. And of course, the Lucha Brothers will beat The Wingmen to get momentum going into their Lucha Rules Tornado Tag with Rush & Andrade.
