MMA Rules Cage Fight: Jake Hager w/ Chris Jericho VS Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears!

It’s TIIIIIIIIIME! The Inner Circle’s #RockHard and the Pinnacle’s War Dog are going to compete like it’s Bellator! Hager is undefeated in MMA fights, but will Mr. Mayhem prove he’s AEW’s Mr. Steel Cage?

The AEW crew checks both men and they’re clean and ready. Wardlow isn’t even facing Hager as the explanation of the rules are given. This will be a maximum of three five-minute rounds. There are no judges, no ropebreaks and no pinfalls, so the only ways to win are submission, knockout, or referee stoppage, aka technical knockout. Aubrey Edwards steps up as referee for this match and the introductions are made. Now Wardlow faces Hager, Aubrey tells them to keep this clean and touch gloves if they want. They don’t, and get set as the fans fire up. The bell rings and we have round one!

Hager and Wardlow circle, approach and feel things out. Hager stays out of Wardlow’s reach but then tries his own jabs. Wardlow shows kick but Hager is ready. Hager tries a combo, Wardlow deflects and avoids them all. They keep circling, the tension is building, but neither man has landed something. Fans fire up more and Hager tries to shoot in! Hager goes for a leg, Wardlow blocks and they end up on steel. The ref tells them to let off and Wardlow backs off. Fans cheer the stand off as the two try again. Hager puts up his dukes, and JABS right through Wardlow’s guard! Hager walks off, too, so Wardlow can’t get at him. Wardlow and Hager both grin and they circle again.

Hager gets through to body shot but Wardlow stays up. Hager kicks a leg and Wardlow shakes it off. They keep circling, Hager gets another kick then shoots in to put Wardlow against steel! Wardlow TOSSES Hager away and then flexes on him! Hager shrugs that off and they go again. Hager takes Wardlow down but lets off, just to taunt him! Wardlow gets up and snarls as they circle again. Wardlow throws hands but Hager gets another takedown! He stays on Wardlow this time with hammer fists but Wardlow kicks him away! Wardlow gets up in a huff but he still circles with Hager. Hager uses another kick just to keep Wardlow on his toes.

Hager kicks again but Wardlow blocks it! Wardlow DECKS Hager! And then rushes him at the steel for fast hands! Wardlow gets Hager up for a SPINEBUSTER! Wardlow tries ground ‘n’ pound but Hager gets away and to his feet! We’re under a minute but Hager doesn’t sweat it. Hager and Wardlow reset, Wardlow blocks as Hager throws hands! Wardlow tries to hit back but Hager keeps the offense! Wardlow gets a shot in and has Hager staggering! Wardlow shoves, uses the steel, SUPERMAN PUNCH! Hager staggers up and Wardlow chases him! We’re at 20 seconds as Wardlow keeps Hager off balance! Ten seconds, Hager guards but Wardlow isn’t letting up! Time’s up on round one!

Round 1 over

Hager survives and may have underestimated Wardlow. Cornermen Spears and Jericho get in to help out, but it’s mostly Hager who needs to refresher. Spears keeps Wardlow fired up and we’re on to round two!

Hager tells Aubrey he’s fine, but Wardlow runs in! Hager dodges, Wardlow only hits steel, but Hager is still wary of his right side. Wardlow kicks, Hager dodges and waistlocks. Wardlow wrenches to a wristlock takedown! Wardlow wants a mount but Hager gets to the steel. Wardlow throws hands in the gaps and fans boo but Hager can only guard! Aubrey watches closely as Wardlow wants an arm! Hager blocks the armbar, the grip breaks a moment but Hager uses his wrestling background to get around! Hager throws elbows into Wardlow’s ribs! Hager sits up to hammer, and now Hager wants the armbar!

Wardlow grasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE HOLD! Hager gets his legs locked but Wardlow powers up! Wardlow deadlifts and SLAMS Hager! Wardlow hammers free, tries more ground ‘n’ pound but Hager fights to get an ANKLE LOCK! Wardlow endures as he can’t get a ropebreak to stop this! Wardlow rolls, BOOTS Hager, and gets to his feet, into a BOOT from Hager! Hager runs but the boot is blocked! Wardlow gets Hager up for a POWERBOMB into steel! Wardlow HURICANRANAS?! And SPEARS! Hager turns it into a HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE!! Wardlow is caught in the katagatami, grabs steel but that won’t do anything!

Wardlow fights his way up to stand on his feet, and he slips through to fireman’s carry! Hager elbows free, gets Wardlow up, URENAGE into the KATAGATAMI!! Wardlow is caught this time, with no steel to use as leverage! We’re under a minute, but Wardlow flips Hager off before he passes out!! Hager wins!!

Winner: Jake Hager, by referee stoppage

STILL undefeated in MMA battles, Hager has tied the overall series up! But if Wardlow won as a wrestler and Hager won as a fighter, what will it take to settle this?

Hager and Wardlow stand off, and it seems as if the two titans have gained each other’s respect. But Spears shows no respect as he CLOBBERS Hager from behind! Jericho goes after Spears, so Wardlow goes after Jericho! The Pinnacle mugs Jericho 2v1 but he fights them off! Jericho throws hands on Wardlow but Spears gets back up, only for Hager to get him with knees! MJF runs in and tips the scales back towards the Pinnacle as he DECKS Jericho! MJF wants the bad elbow, SALT OF THE EARTH FUJIWARA! Jericho taps but that doesn’t matter because this is just a scrap! Wait, DAN MALENKO gets in! MJF wants to hit Malenko but he’s an AEW official and is untouchable.

But MJF STILL Decks him!? MJF shows no respect for a legend or a man dealing with health issues! But here comes Sammy Guevara!! The Spanish God leaps up the cage to DECK Spears and run off MJF! MJF retreats like the chicken he is, but Wardlow is also his bodyguard! Will Sammy tear down the Pinnacle all by himself if he has to?


AEW hears from Frankie Kazarian, Eddie Kingston & Penta El Zero M!

The Heavy Metal Rebel tells Matt Jackson & the Good Brothers, “It’s more like the Righteous and the Wicked, is it not? Matt, my oh so devout friend, it’s Romans 12:19 that tells us, ‘Do not seek revenge but to leave room for the wrath of God. It is mine to avenge, I will repay, says the Lord.” But Kaz doesn’t always agree with the Lord because tonight, vengeance is all his! And as for Gallows & Anderson, they don’t have to worry about that because they’re not righteous men but miscreants! They lack moral fiber, but that’s fine because Kaz isn’t righteous, either. Kaz is a man hungry for revenge and thirsty for retribution. Kaz is a man done being decent in these indecent times. Kaz is a man who will leave them all laying in a puddle of their own despair.

Kingston steps up to say, “Boys! Pray to your God and hopes he takes your soul. Because your asses are ours!” And Penta adds, “Because you know what? Cero… Miedo…!” Will these #EliteHunters catch their prey and make them pay?


Team Taz speaks.

Taz himself says it is pretty well documented that there are issues amongst the group. He wanted to air it out here and is telling Ricky Starks that he loves him, and knows he is a vital part to what they have going on, but this thing with him and Brian Cage needs to end and needs to end soon. Starks wants to say something but Will Hobbs has him stop right there. Cut the crap, Starks. They left Hobbs hanging but they’re supposed to be a team. Where’s the team unity, Taz? Taz agrees with Hobbs, he was left in a 2v1 situation. That’s why what happened happened.

And speaking of which, Taz tells Hangman Page, for next week’s special Saturday Night Dynamite, Hangman won’t have it so easy with Preston Vance helping him get a 2v1 win. How about a 1v1 win with Hobbs? Hangman’s a top guy in this company, but so is Hobbs! The challenge has been issued, but will Hangman be able to overcome it?


2v1 Handicap Match: Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky VS Darby Allin!

The Men of the Year, as they call themselves, wanted the Relentless One to find someone not named Sting to help him. Instead, even they were surprised that Darby wants to do this alone! Will that mean Darby alone takes the loss on this one? Or will he rub their egos in their faces?

Darby is truly going this alone against Ethan & Scorpio as Sting is honoring Darby’s request he stay home. Darby throws his jacket at Ethan, so Scorpio snatches it to stomp it and kick it out of the ring. Ethan starts against Darby and starts with trash talk. Darby SLAPS Ethan, but Ethan dares him to do that again. Darby dodges Ethan’s haymaker, throws him around with arm-drags, and springboards for a FLYING arm-drag! Ethan backs off in a hurry and snakes through ropes to tag Scorpio. Scorpio runs into Darby’s drop toehold! Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Darby whips, Scorpio reverses and Ethan gets a cheap shot in!

Darby DECKS Ethan, runs at Scorpio, but Ethan follows to catch the springboard trust fall! Ethan holds Darby up for Scorpio to DECK now! Fans boo but the Men of the Year double whip, only for Darby to crisscross them into each other! Springboard, DOUBLE TRUST FALL! Cover, TWO! Darby wraps on a headlock and fans rally behind him but Scorpio pulls hair. Tag to Ethan, they whip Darby and Ethan CLOBBERS Darby with the shoulder tackle! Ethan snarls then soaks up the heat with a cocky grin while Darby is down. Ethan drags Darby up, gorilla presses, but Darby slips off to a SLEEPER HOLD! Darby becomes a backpack but Ethan stays up to RAM him into buckles!

Darby latches back on! Darby squeezes tight but again Ethan RAMS him into buckles! Ethan ROCKS Darby then TOSSES him into the opposite corner! Ethan cools off while Darby flounders. Darby kicks from below but Ethan stomps him down! Ethan drags Darby and tags Scorpio as AEW goes picture in picture.

Scorpio scrapes soles on Darby’s face, then paces around him. Scorpio puts Darby in a corner for haymakers and stomps, but lets off as the ref counts. Scorpio drags Darby up but Darby hits back with big forearms! Darby backs Scorpio down but Scorpio ROCKS him with a haymaker! Tag to Ethan, the Men of the Year mug Darby, and then Ethan drags Darby back up for another hard body shot. Ethan throws more body shots, Darby throws them back, but Ethan KNEES low! Ethan gets Darby back up, reel shim in, and Canadian racks, only for Darby to sunset flip! Cover, TWO!! Ethan gets back up to BOOT Darby down!

Ethan sneers while Scorpio smiles and they tag again. Scorpio gets Darby up, knuckle locks the right hand and dares Darby to do something. Darby throws SLAPS but Scorpio just BOOTS him back down! Scorpio digs his boots in at the ropes but lets off as the ref counts. Ethan is in a better mood now as Scorpio tags him back in. They mug Darby with stomps, and Ethan clamps onto the arm to scoop Darby for a BACKBREAKER! AEW returns to single picture as Ethan tags Scorpio back in. Scorpio drags Darby back up and scoops him for a BACKBREAKER of his own! Tag back to Ethan, he drags Darby back up and scoops again for a PENDULUM BACKBREAKER!

Fans boo as these two keep toying with Darby. Tag back to Scorpio and he drags Darby back up. Scorpio says he’ll end this, and carries Darby around for another BACKBREAKER! Scorpio blows a kiss to the fans, then tags Ethan back in. Ethan drags Darby up but Darby cradles! TWO!!! Darby almost had Ethan and Ethan KNEES Darby low! Ethan mockingly has Darby hold out a hand to tag no one, and then scoops Darby again, only for Darby to slip through! SCORPIO DEATH DROP!! Sting isn’t here physically but he’s here in spirit! Fans are thunderous for Darby as both he and Ethan slowly rise. Ethan crawls over, Darby goes to his corner, hot tag to Scorpio!

Scorpio takes his time, though, as Darby has no one. Darby “tags” himself, and then goes up and over Scorpio to BLAST Ethan! Darby BOOTS Scorpio, jumps up and over and SHOTGUNS! Then CODE RED! Cover, but Ethan breaks it! Ethan SLAMS Darby right down, argues with the ref, and then Scorpio argues with the ref. But Darby has a zip tie?! And he ties up Ethan’s feet! Darby throws Ethan out, gets around Scorpio to schoolboy, TWO!! La Magistrol, TWO!! Ethan fiddles with the zip tie as Darby hits the THROWBACK STUNNER!! Darby hurries up top, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Ethan YANKS Darby out of the ring! Darby should’ve remembered Ethan’s arms were still free!

Ethan gets a toolbox, finds wire cutters, and uses those to cut the zip tie off. Ethan storms over to Darby, drags him back up, and then POSTS him! Fans boo as Ethan drags Darby back up and into the ring. Fans rally as hard as they can for Darby but Scorpio tags Ethan back in. Ethan looms over Darby now, drags him back up and puts him in a corner. Ethan hoists Darby up top, climbs up to join him, but Darby resists the superplex! Darby grabs an arm to BITE the hand! Darby HEADBUTTS Ethan down, adjusts position, but Scorpio trips him up! Ethan gets Darby off the corner for the EGO’S EDGE!! Cover, the Men of the Year win!

Winners: Scorpio Sky & Ethan Page, by pinfall

It sadly seemed inevitable, as Darby fought them both alone! Will this only boost the egos of these two narcissists?


Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends VS Cezar Bononi w/ The Wingmen!

The fashion sense of Freshly Squeezed doesn’t seem to sit well with “Pretty” Peter Avalon, “Hollywood Hunk” Ryan Nemeth, “Blue Collar Badass” JD Drake, and least of all, the “Beautiful Brazilian Beefcake.” But will Cassidy use one match to show all four Wingmen that you look your best when you’re being yourself?

The bell rings and Cassidy stands toe to toe with Bononi. Bononi keeps Cassidy from putting hands in his pockets by grabbing him by the denim jacket! Bononi TOSSES Cassidy into a corner and hits him with a back elbow! Bononi throws body shots, CLUBS Cassidy down, then pulls the jacket off to toss it away! Fans boo as Bononi puts Cassidy back in the corner. Bononi actually puts Cassidy’s hands in his pockets for him just to mock him! Bononi scoops Cassidy to HOSS TOSS Cassidy across the ring! Fans boo more as Bononi mockingly puts his hands in his waistband. And wait! The Wingmen are giving Cassidy a makeover without his consent! Hair gel and spray tan?!

Nemeth gets Cassidy back into the ring for Bononi and says they can get his back later. Cassidy gets away from Bononi to run, but into Bononi’s arms! Bononi tosses them BOOTS Cassidy down! Bononi kicks Cassidy back out and now Avalon starts styling Cassidy’s hair. Nemeth puts his Hollywood Hunk tux onto Cassidy! They put Cassidy back in again and the ref reprimands the Wingmen for doing this stuff! Bononi throws body shots, whips Cassidy corner to corner, but Cassidy goes up and out and slingshots back in to go for Bononi’s leg! Bononi stays up, Cassidy shifts to a waistlock and shoves Bononi. Bononi rebounds and Cassidy dumps him out!

The Wingmen regroup and smooth out Bononi’s hair, but Cassidy PLANCHAS onto them all! That’s too many to take down and they throw Cassidy back in! The Best Friends get in, wipe the tanner off and get the Hollywood Hunk tux off. Cassidy gets his sunglasses back, Trent and Chuck give Cassidy a boost while Kris Statlander distracts the ref! BOOSTED TOPE CONJILO!! The sunglasses go flying as the Wingmen go tumbling! Bononi staggers up first but Cassidy puts him back in the ring. Fans are fire up as Cassidy climbs up the corner, for a FLYING- NO! Bononi blocks the DDT to suplex, but Cassidy hits STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE! And a tilt-o-whirl DDT!

Nemeth is furious but Chuck slides up to him for a thumbs up. Why? Because here comes some ORANGE PUNCH! JD gets in but Statlander boops him! ORANGE PUNCH! Bononi is back up, he pump handles Cassidy but Cassidy slips out! Shove and ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Cassidy wins!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

See? Being yourself makes you a winner! Cassidy whooped the Wingmen and Pretty Peter is an ugly crier. Will Cassidy and his Best Friends hug, cuz you GOT to give the people what they want! Will Cassidy, Best Friends and all of us get what we want when these four go for gold?


Alex Marvez interviews Jungle Boy.

The AEW World Championship showdown between JB and Kenny Omega is just one week away. But here comes a golf cart honking in. “Champion coming through!” Omega, with Michael Nakazawa and Don Callis, interrupt the interview. Is JB confused or star struck? The Champion isn’t wearing a nice suit, a nice ring or even the belt, and JB must be wondering why. Here’s why. Last week, JB butt in to Omega’s business and embarrassed him. Omega says this week, in front of cameras and the fans, Omega will give JB how tough he really is! JB can’t really have been in a Street Fight, given those pretty looks of his. Has he even really taken a punch?

Omega says this is the ultimate opportunity. It’s a picnic for two, and in the basket is a pair of knuckle sandwiches. Omega wants to see what Jungle Jack has! Callis eggs JB on and JB can’t believe Omega wants to fight now. JB would rather wait until next week to beat him for the title. Oh, is that so? Well Omega will sweeten the deal then. First one’s free, Jack! But here’s a warning: as soon as you take the shot, Omega’s all over him! JB still can’t believe Omega’s serious, but Omega says he’s gonna be “all up in that ass!” JB puts his backpack down and takes off his jacket. Omega says this is a limited time offer! Yeah, put your hair up. LAPTOP SHOT from Nakazawa!!

Omega throws JB into barrels and throws hands, but JB throws hands back! Nakazawa pushes JB away, and helps Omega get back to the cart! Omega doesn’t let Nakazawa get in!? Omega makes Nakazawa the sacrificial lamb! JB DECKS Nakazawa while Callis drives Omega to safety! Omega says he’ll get JB next week! JB has no choice but to wait until Saturday, June 26th! Will he make Omega pay for treating him like a kid on the playground?


Alex Marvez interview the Hardy Family Office.

Marvez asks Big Money Matt about his history with Christian Cage, and how the issues have escalated after Double or Nothing. Hardy asks Marvez if he knows what happens when you break a contract. “You face repercussions.” Hardy had a handshake with Christian in that Casino Battle Royal, and then Christian broke the contract. Now Christian is facing the repercussions! Week after week, Hardy has dropped Christian on his ass! That continues if Christian keeps going this way. Christian was retired from injuries for seven years, and made this miraculous comeback, a very happy ending. But if Christian keeps going for-

Whoa, here comes Christian! The Blade and Private Party put him behind the steel fencing of the storage area! Bunny Allie laughs as the boys chant, “Lock Him Up!” Hardy tells Christian that he has a way out: RETIRE! Hardy will give Christian the first check in his retirement fund. Christian tells Hardy to open the cage, but Hardy says no. Maybe this alone time will give Christian perspective. If Christian comes after Hardy again, Hardy vows to end his career permanently. Will Captain Charisma heed that warning? Or will he take Hardy for everything he has?


Cody Rhodes & Brock Anderson w/ Arn Anderson VS QT Marshall & Aaron Solow w/ Nick Comoroto!

Winners: Brock Anderson & Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

Arn celebrates with his son in the ring! Is this the beginning of another legend? Will the Factory only come back with a more ferocious game plan?


AEW hears from Lance Archer & Jake the Snake.

The Snake says, “When you’re this far away in wrestling, you might as well be 10 thousand miles away.” They had to fight their way back to where all the forbidden doors had been kicked open, and where all the great prizes lied. Jake has had to reconnect with Archer because to tell the truth, Archer has no patients. Sometimes, you have to lie in wait like a tiger. Then you can pounce. Archer doesn’t like doing that. Jake has no choice now. What is he to do? Bitch slap Archer and tell him to stop? Archer shouts and it even startles Jake, and it’s time to go. Will the Murderhawk Monster tear into everyone in his path when he returns to Dynamite?


Jim Ross has a sit-down interview with Andrade El Idolo.

“Andrade the Idol,” or simply El Idolo, is a true superstar. You can’t go anywhere in the world without finding someone who knows this man. But then the question is, why AEW and why now? For many reasons. Here, there are many talents, many stars, but Andrade is a superstar. The world of pro-wrestling knows that AEW has two of the greatest titles in the world, and they’re still brand new: the AEW World Championship and AEW TNT Championship. These are hot commodities worth lots of money. And JR doesn’t want to sound old or stupid, but those have to be on Andrade’s radar.

Andrade says that this is his next goal: “I want- No, I deserve opportunities for the TNT title and the AEW World title. It’s my next step.” JR says it was an amazing surprise, as Dynamite usually has, that Andrade was presented by Vickie Guerrero, someone who JR has known for a long time. Why did he have Vickie introduce him? “Many things. She understands the business, she is very smart. I’m a third generation wrestler. She came up with Eddie Guerrero. She knows his family, which is full of even more wrestlers. The same holds true for my family. This is why we have a great connection.” But, just wait, because Vickie and Andrade have another surprise. What is this that El Idolo is hinting towards?


Alex Marvez interviews Hangman Page and the Dark Order.

Marvez of course asks Hangman about Taz’s challenge to face Hobbs 1v1. What is his answer? Well, Hobbs almost beat Number 10 and Hangman by himself, so the answer is yes, Hangman accepts! But right now, Hangman has his good friends and ice cold beer, that’s all he cares about right now. Something else to know for Saturday Night Dynamite is that it will be Kenny Omega VS Jungle Boy for THE AEW World Championship. As the current #2 ranked contender, this really affects him, too. Well yes, but while Hangman is still in a good mood, he wants to bring up John Silver is almost healed! He’ll be back in action really soon!

And also, Vance wont he main event on last week’s Dynamite! Alan Angels has a new jacket and it looks alright. Evil Uno… Oh, well, he lost against Miro in a match for the TNT Championship, but gave the performance of a lifetime! And Uno is a champion to them. So on behalf of the Dark Order, here’s to Evil Uno! Vance and Reynolds get Uno up on their shoulders and everyone cheers! “Uno! Uno! Uno!” Will it only be a matter of time before everyone in the group has something to celebrate?


Julia Hart w/ Varsity Blonds VS Penelope Ford!

The two-time national cheerleading champion has been gaining experience and momentum standing alongside the Ivy League MVP and Bulletproof BPJ. But the Superbad Girl is back! She may not have her Superbad Husband with her, but can she win this one for Kip?

The bell rings and Ford circles with Julia as fans cheer Julia on. They tie up, Ford wrenches an arm to a wristlock, but Julia rolls and wrenches through. Julia has the wristlock, Ford wrenches to reel Julia in for a headlock and a takeover. Julia moves around, keeps her shoulder sup, but Ford blows a kiss for Kip. Julia headscissors and holds tight as Ford moves around! Ford gets up and kips free, then headlocks Julia again. Julia powers out, Ford runs her over, and then Ford talks some trash. But Julia kips up to dropkick Ford down! Julia runs and crossbodies! Ford scrambles away to the outside and fans fire up for Julia!

Julia goes after Ford but Ford trips her up! Ford spins Julia to ROCK her with a forearm! Then Ford goes up and out to DOUBLE KNEE DROP on the apron! Ford tosses her hair at the wrestlers watching ringside as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ford takes her time returning, but Julia kicks low! Ford throws forearms, snapmares Julia down and KICKS her in the back! Ford paces around Julia, drags her up, and whips her to a corner hard. Ford handsprings corner to corner to back elbow! Ford then goes side to side to BOOT Julia, and waistlock for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Ford covers, TWO! Julia survives and Ford is a bit shocked. Ford argues the count while sneaking a choke in on Julia using her knee! The ref notices and counts, Ford lets off at 4. Ford “apologizes,” claiming she had no idea. Ford kicks Julia around, looms over her, and then rains down right hands! The Varsity Blonds coach Julia but Ford keeps on her as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Ford trades forearms with Julia! Fans fire up as Julia ducks and CLOBBERS Ford! Julia starts to rally with those clotheslines, then kicks low to whip Ford to a corner. Julia uses her own handspring, but Ford dodges the clothesline to back elbow Julia down! Ford rolls, comes back with her own front handspring, but Julia goes up and over to sunset flip! ONE, Ford steadies herself and CLOBBERS Julia! Fans boo but Ford just smirks as she drags Julia back up. Ford reels Julia in, Julia wrenches out and KICKS her in the chest! And again! And again! Ford blocks the kick to SLAP Julia! Ford fireman’s carries, and hits a GUT BUSTER DROP!

Ford grins as she drags Julia to a drop zone. Ford climbs up, smiles again as everyone rallies for Julia, and MOONSAULTS but flops! Fans cheer as Julia gets up and builds speed, does the splits but Ford avoids the leg drop! Ford gets the legs and ties them up, for a SUPERBAD MUDA LOCK! Julia endures, reaches, but can’t get any ground! Julia taps, Ford wins!

Winner: Penelope Ford, by submission

Ford makes Julia suffer in the hold, and even has her pass out! The Varsity Blonds get Ford to stop, but Ford just grins as she gets space. But then MIRO comes out!? The Best Man asks Ford about Kip Sabian’s whereabouts. We all know Kip is injured, because of what Miro did to him, but he knows Kip can’t be far. Plus, she’s a little outnumbered so he’s evening the odds. The UNDEFEATED TNT Champion, “God’s Favorite,” is here. Don’t the Varsity Blonds know what Ford’s been through? Her wedding was ruined, her husband got injured. What kind of man would Miro be if he let this slide? And then Miro CLOBBERS Griff Garrison!

Referees rush out as Miro tosses Griff out, but BPJ SPRINGBOARD FOREARMS! BPJ fires off on Miro but Miro goes after BPJ! The refs try to stop this but fans want to “Let Them Fight!” Ford ignores Miro’s crazy talk and takes her leave while Miro and BPJ brawl more! Will this madness turn into a match down the line?


Tony Schiavone interviews Britt Baker and Rebel.

One of Schiavone’s favorite parts of Dynamite is talking with his good friend, the AEW Women’s World Champion, The Dentist. But then Vickie Guerrero comes literally sniffing around, and says all she smells is rotten onions and stale sauce. But whatever. Vickie tells Britt that the only thing she’s proven since winning that title is that Britt’s happy place is eating burgers. That’s fine and all but Vickie is not happy! Vickie wants that title around the waist of her client, Nyla Rose. Oh? If they want this belt, then let’s just give it over cuz Vickie wants it~! No, Vickie is willing to have a match made.

Uh, Vickie, they ain’t playing games, and sure as hell ain’t playing Old Maid. Vickie, go on now, they’re in the middle of an interview. “Excuse me, sweetheart, may I remind you that I am the one that brought in Andrade El Idolo to AEW?” So? And Tony Khan owes her a favor for that. And so by his approval, Vickie has made this match: Britt and Rebel VS Nyla and Vickie! See you later, sweetie! The Dentist and her assistant laugh at the idea of Nyla and Vickie taking them on in a match. Britt cuts the interview short here, that was good enough. But it is happening! Dynamite’s return to Wednesdays will see Britt and Rebel take on the Vicious Vixens on June 30th! Will Britt and Rebel be laughing then when they have to take on the top ranked contender?


MORE matches for Dynamite on June 30th!

Also on the return to Wednesday, it will be Miro VS Brian Pillman Jr. for the TNT Championship! Will Bulletproof BPJ be the first and biggest loss on the Best Man’s AEW record? Plus, after the confrontation after tonight’s MMA Rules Cage Fight, MJF and Sammy Guevara will go 1v1 for the first time ever! Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman pay for what he did to Malenko soon enough?

Plus, Saturday Dynamite WILL have Hangman VS Hobbs! Will the Anxious Millennial Cowboy use the Powerhouse as a major step towards becoming #1 contender?


AEW takes a look at the growing feud of FTR VS Santana & Ortiz!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are “two hardnosed Carolina boys.” Proud ‘n’ Powerful are “two kids from New York City with the balls to chase their dreams.” All four men have had to sweat and bleed for everything they’ve ever gotten in life. Struggled, scratched, clawed, and now they are two of, if not the two best, tag teams in the world. But while there are so many differences, there are so many similarities. FTR may think they’re like PNP, but Carolina ain’t New York. But PNP aren’t the only ones to come “from the wrong side of the tracks.” Did Santana & Ortiz ever have to live without running water? Cash doubts it. Live out of their cars? Doubt it. Live in a house with plastic walls? Doubt it.

Santana says he witnessed his mom be abused in every shape and form. That caused him to turn to the streets. Robbing, stealing, gangs, shootouts. Santana wasn’t even sure he was going to see the age of 25, real talk. And when they made their debuts, that was all the validation they needed this was all worth it. But Dax & Cash say that they spend cash on fancy denim or thousand dollar suits because they earned that. PNP climbed out of where they started, too, but somewhere along the way, they lost their edge. FTR had accomplished more in six months than PNP did in two years. What does that say about their drive?

Ortiz says the titles ain’t going nowhere. Let other people fight for those. PNP has been carrying AEW so that “boys like you could have options.” FTR says that when they look in the eyes of PNP, they see shame, embarrassment. Santana bets they would never step to his face and tell him that. You must be out your mind! FTR says they have had the best rookie year, and when they beat PNP, that’s just another notch on their legacy. Win or lose, PNP says FTR will remember them. FTR says they will beat PNP until they say, “Thank you, sirs.” Then, you’ll be FTR fans for life. Who backs up all their talk when these two finally have it out in the middle of the ring?


AEW hears from Mark Sterling and Jade Cargill.

As “Smart Mark” knew, the Monetization Plan is going great! They are here and thrilled to announce their partnership with a hotel line. A luxury hotel, at that! The Toronto Four Seasons has joined the Jade Cargill brand. It can be where her opponents stay after she knocks them out. And they’re accepting all brands- No, not all. Only the elite. Jade is a walking billboard, so companies should be elated to be working with her. And of course they are! Mark even has a great discount code you can use! Go ahead and tell ’em, Jade! #ThatBitch! YES! Rolls right off the tongue.

But of course, the focus is on pro-wrestling. Jade is still undefeated, and you can catch her on all programming, from Dynamite, Dark: Elevation, and Rampage when it debuts on August 13th! She’ll continue her win streak, because she’s #ThatBitch! Will Jade be swimming in money from now until the end of time?

JR says this is going too far! Callis says if getting paid the big money is “going too far,” then he’ll gladly do that every day of the week! Will all these sneaky tactics only come back to bite the Elite in the end?

My Thoughts:

Another great episode for Dynamite, but I feel like they sure put a lot into these two hours tonight. We got a great FTR VS PNP vignette, we got another good promo from Mark Sterling and Jade Cargill, as well as one from Archer and Jake the Snake. The interview promo with Britt, Rebel and Vickie, which was mostly Vickie, was good. I had a feeling manager/sidekick characters would start facing off, and so the idea of Britt & Rebel taking on Nyla & Vickie is pretty clever. There’s a good chance Rebel takes the loss to Nyla so that Nyla has momentum going towards her title match with Britt without Britt looking like the weak one.

Andrade had a good interview promo with JR, too, and I like that there’s something else in store. I feel like AEW could’ve advertised that Andrade is facing Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega Championship in August, assuming that’s still on track, but maybe they’ll save that for when Andrade has already won a good handful of matches in AEW. Omega’s gotta start feeling the heat soon, and that could start with Jungle Boy next week. Their segment together was very good, and of course Omega doubles down on being the chicken Heel. Omega will likely have Nakazawa try to cheat for him next week, just so it isn’t the same old, same old with Callis.

Hangman had a good promo with the Dark Order, putting everyone else over and not really acknowledging Omega. Hangman VS Hobbs is going to be a great match to add to the strength of next week’s episode, and it very well could be foreshadowing that if both Hangman and Omega win that night, then that is our All Out 2021 match-up. Christian Cage being put in a cage was clever but also understated, and also a good, quick way to help escalate things between him and Matt Hardy. Penelope Ford’s return win also being a segue to Miro having a title match in a few weeks was also very good story blending. I feel like Kip returns that night to set up his revenge angle with Miro.

Hager VS Wardlow was a very good MMA style match, and it makes sense Hager would win. He can’t have an anomaly on his record where he’s undefeated in real-life but has one loss in kayfabe. Hager wins to stay strong in all realms, and the short moment of respect was good, because it adds a little something to how Spears ruined it by attacking. MJF adding on and Sammy going after him was a good detail. I suppose Sammy and MJF can settle their score before Sammy VS Spears and MJF VS Jericho. If anything, that was the fifth match I wasn’t seeing in the Pinnacle VS Inner Circle Summer of Violence and Pain best of five series. Hager won for Inner Circle, I think MJF wins for Pinnacle, then Sammy redeems himself against Spears and it’s a toss-up between FTR VS PNP and MJF VS Y2J.

Darby put up a valiant effort but of course he loses to The Men of the Year. Two very strong singles competitors who are also a tag team aren’t going to lose to Darby, who is their individual equal. I can’t be sure where this all ends, since we got Sting & Darby VS Ethan & Scorpio already at Double or Nothing, but I feel like Sting is going to return in the next part of the story. Cassidy VS Bononi was a very fun match because of the hijinks from the Wingmen, but naturally Cassidy won. He, Best Friends and Statlander could easily be a golden faction at some point, they’re going to be building up some major momentum in the various divisions.

Cody & Brock VS The Factory was a very good match, and though Brock took a second to get going, he was pretty good out there. Cody going after QT so that Brock could get the win on Solow makes sense, this was all meant to help boost Brock’s status here, and it keeps math neutral between Cody and QT as their strap match draws closer. The Six Man Tag was another awesome one, showing that any combination of The Elite still loves to cheat, but also that any combination of their enemies is strong enough to force them to stoop that low. I cannot wait until more #EliteHunter allies return, such as Rey Fenix or Pac, but especially Jon Moxley.

Moxley will be the guy that one, the fans all pop for, and two, AEW gives the strongest return to because he’ll go right for all The Elite and be the one that tips the scales in favor of the Elite Hunters. Moxley is of course out on paternity leave as Renee Young/Paquette just had their baby girl, so I don’t know if All Out is a viable window with it only being two-and-a-half months away, but the rest of this story should still stay on track to where something big goes down between the Elite and their enemies. Kaz, Kingston and the full Death Triangle VS Omega, Bucks and Good Brothers, at least.

My Score: 9.4/10

Fans continue to rally as Vikingo sees Komander on the apron. Vikingo storms up to throw forearms on Komander while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Vikingo GAMANGIRIS Komander down to the floor, then he fires forearms on Dralistico. Vikingo gets the fans fired up as he whips corner to corner. Dralistico reverses, runs in, but Vikingo puts him on the apron. Dralistico bumps Viking off buckles, ROUNDHOUSES him, then springboards, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Vikingo is still in this and Jose is upset. Dralistico drags Vikingo up, pushes him to ropes, then goes out to look under the ring. He brings out a TABLE! Jose helps Dralistico set that up at ringside, then Dralistico goes to fetch Vikingo. Komander is there but Dralistico ROCKS him and RAMS him into railing.

Dralistico is furious that victory was snatched away from him in an instant! But this is why you cannot underestimate El Hijo del Vikingo! Will his AAA Mega reign continue through the summer?


Backstage interview with Team Triple J.

Lexi Nair is with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, as well as Jeff & Karen Jarrett, “and the talk all week has been that you, Sonjay Dutt, and your group will be suspended.” WHAT?! Fined? Suspended? The only ones who should be facing that is AEW itself! They backed Triple J into a corner and they came out swinging like any real fighters would! Lethal feels that there should be consequences for Aubrey Edwards! She’s been against Triple J since the dawn of time! Something needs to be done about her! Jeff adds that there’s been enough talk these past five days. Should the heat go on the promotion? Should the heat go on Briscoe? On Aubrey?

The reality of the fact is, these five people are walking, talking, fire-breathing heat! But wait, here comes Mark Briscoe! He wants everyone to simmer down. There will be no suspensions, he assures us that. Mark talked with Tony Khan, Tony promised them there would be no suspensions. Because if Triple J is suspended, then they can’t be here. Because if they aren’t here, then they can’t get the ass whooping they deserve! Lethal wants Mark to hold on but Mark tells Lethal to shut up! We ain’t talking about Lethal! We’re talking about Jeff and KAREN! What?! “We?” Who is “we?!” AUBREY EDWARDS!!

Triple J cannot believe this. Aubrey wants Karen? Then there’s nothing but air and opportunity between them. So then Aubrey CHOKES Karen!! Karen and Aubrey start scrapping and Triple J, other refs and security rush in to stop this! When and where will Double J & the one true Karen have to face off with the Sussex County Chicken and one pissed off zebra?


NJPW World Television Championship: Zack Sabre Jr. VS Action Andretti!

Speaking of just last night on ROH, the Frontman of TMDK just defended this belt against Rocky Romero to prove a point to “Samoan Joseph” about who is the better, harder working Television Champion. And here he is again as part of this championship edition of Rampage! Will the ZSJ Show continue on into the summer block? Or will NJPW have some #LightsCameraAction?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Action gets his 15 minutes of fame!

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The two circle, fans rally, feel things out, and ZSJ shoots in to waistlock and full nelson. Then he spins Action to a cravat, but Action pries at the hold. ZSJ facelocks now, Action wrenches out of that but ZSJ rolls and slips away. Fans cheer this opening exchange and the two reset. Action shoots in but ZSJ avoids him. They tie up with knuckle locks, ZSJ bridges back and wrenches around to then wrangle Action with a top wristlock. Fans cheer and ZSJ digs a knee into the shoulder.

Direct hit into the railing! Fans are fired up with Action and he brings ZSJ back up. Action puts ZSJ in, slingshots, but ZSJ shoves him! Action lands safe but swings into body scissors, which ZSJ makes into a HANGING TRIANGLE! ZSJ did this to Rocky last night! The ref counts, ZSJ lets go at 4 and he drags Action back in, to WRING the arm out! Fans sing “OH~ Zack Sabre Junior~” as he stalks Action. ZSJ sits on the arm, hammerlocks it, and TWISTS!

Action writhes while fans are torn over the savagery. ZSJ gets Action’s leg, steps over to get the arm, and he STOMPS the arm! “OI! TV Tekkers, mates!” ZSJ stalks Action to a corner, brings him up and UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! “This is Awesome!” and ZSJ knuckle locks to wrench Action. Action endures as ZSJ twists the wrist more, and then ZSJ KICKS a leg. Action stays up so ZSJ wrenches and twists the wrist. Action throws body shots and CHOPS! ZSJ jumps on to drag Action down to a DISARMER! Action endures, reaches out, and fans rally. Action kicks around, ZSJ pulls on the arm, but Action gets the ROPEBREAK!

ZSJ KICKS Action in the leg! And then KICKS him in the arm! ZSJ is mad now, but he runs into a SUPERKICK! Action goes up, POISON-RANA!! ZSJ flops around, Action runs in again, “This is Awesome!” as Action SHOTGUNS ZSJ down! ZSJ is in the drop zone, Action goes up, SPLIT-LEG MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!!

Action’s 15 minutes of fame were really just over 10 minutes as The Frontman does it again! But now he moves on to defend this title at NJPW Dominion on Sunday against Jeff Cobb in a highly anticipated rematch. The Mighty Don’t Kneel, but will ZSJ get crushed by the Imperial Unit?


NJPW Strong Women’s Championship: Willow Nightingale VS Emi Sakura!

The Babe with the Power, too sweet to be sour, is the very-first NJPW Strong Women’s Champion after a powerful run at Resurgence. But will Willow make it through her first defense? Or will the Queen of Joshi take Willow’s throne already?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and one way or another, we witness a historic first defense!

The bell rings and the two RAM each other! Fans rally up as Emi and Willow RAM shoulders again! And again! Emi eggs Willow on so she says okay! Willow runs, RAMS Emi, but Emi roars!

Willow CHOPS Emi in the other corner and fans rally up. Willow puts Emi in the third corner, CHOPS, CHOPS and MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans fire up but Emi avoids the big chop. Emi runs in but Willow goes out to the apron.

Emi stops from hitting buckles, but Willow still counter punches her! Willow then brings Emi up, and fans fire up as they go up the ropes! Emi fights the suplex, tries to suplex Willow, but Willow fights to try again. But Emi rakes the eyes! Emi runs to BODY CHECK Willow off the apron! Emi goes out, signals to media to move, and laughs before she TOSSES Willow at railing! Fans rally as Emi runs in to SPLASH Willow against the railing!

BIG news for ROH!

On Friday, July 21st in Trenton, New Jersey, ROH returns to PPV with Death Before Dishonor! Tickets go on sale next Friday, June 9th!


Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, two technical masters go face to face when Lee Moriarty takes on Shibata for the ROH Pure Championship.” Nigel McGuiness says a competitor like Shibata can pick you apart, one body part by another. But Tony Schiavone and Taz say not enough is said about just how talented Moriarty is for such a young wrestler. It looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!

ROH Pure Championship: Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty!

The Wrestler defended this title just last night on ROH against his student, Alex “The Android” Coughlin. But now he faces #TAIGASTYLE, who has come close to snatching this title for his own not too long ago. Will tonight be Moriarty’s night? Or will Shibata make it through this Pure Wrestling Double Header?

The introductions are made, our judges are BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels & Jerry Lynn, and the belt is raised as we see who is truly THE Wrestler!

The bell rings and the clock is ticking on this 60 minute time limit. The two feel things out, Moriarty shoots in but Shibata holds him off with a sprawl. They clinch on the mat, Shibata slips to a waistlock and then a chinlock. Moriarty slips free but Shibata pushes him to a cover, ONE! Shibata wraps Moriarty up with his own arm and then goes for the armbar! Moriarty clasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE! Moriarty falls onto the ROPEBREAK, that is his first of three. Shibata even lets Moriarty know it as they reset. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder, clinch, and Moriarty tries for a leg.

Shibata powers Moriarty down, gets around to a waistlock, and they stand up. Moriarty pries the hold, fans cheer this technical exchange, but then Moriarty elbows free! Moriarty stomps Shibata into a corner, the ref counts, but Moriarty digs his boot in. Fans boo, but Shibata powers up to back Moriarty down! Shibata throws the foot down but Shibata ROCKS him! Moriarty runs to dropkick the legs out! Fans boo while Moriarty grits his teeth, and then the fans rally up for Shibata as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Moriarty mocks the applause as he stands over Shibata. Moriarty then says they can stop all that, and he grabs a leg to DDT the foot! Moriarty kips up, air guitars, and he ties up Shibata’s legs into a unique crisscross toehold. Then he sits with it for a modified stump puller! Shibata’s shoulders are down, Moriarty is practically stealing Darby Allin’s Last Supper! TWO as Shibata kicks out and Moriarty argues the count. Moriarty drags Shibata around, stomps a leg, then stomps it more and more before another DDT to the foot! Moriarty mocks the clapping from the fans, and then he drags Shibata around for a spinning toehold!

Shibata endures as Moriarty ties up the legs into another cross toehold. Moriarty puts Shibata into an Indian Deathlock, then he knuckle locks Shibata for a cover. TWO as Shibata gets an arm up! Moriarty pushes the arm back down, TWO as Shibata gets the other arm up! Moriarty pushes that arm down, TWO as Shibata gets both arms up! Moriarty CHOPS Shibata, pushes on the legs, then lets Shibata go. Moriarty gets a leg, hooks it, and ties Shibata up in another cross toehold, only for Shibata to trip him! Shibata gets Moriarty’s legs, steps through, but Moriarty fights the figure four! Shibata powers through to sync it in!

Moriarty endures, reaches out, but his shoulders are down. TWO as Moriarty sits up, Shibata keeps on the pressure, and Moriarty falls back onto his shoulders. TWO as he sits up again! Shibata has the extended leg caught in a heel hook behind his back! Moriarty falls back again, shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up! Moriarty endures, reaches out, claws at the hold, and he pries it open. Shibata works to keep it on tight, Moriarty is down again, TWO! Moriarty sits up, Shibata thrashes around, and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans rally, Moriarty drags Shibata along as he reaches back, but Shibata drags him from the ropes!

Moriarty scrambles and goes to the opposite side, ROPEBREAK! That’s his second, he has one left, and we’ve only just past six minutes! Shibata stomps Moriarty’s bad leg, has him in a corner, and he fires off forearms! The ref counts, Shibata fires again and again, but lets off at 4. Shibata runs corner to corner but Moriarty follows to KNEE him in the corner! And then HALF HATCH BRIDGE! TWO as Shibata fights out of the “pancake.” Moriarty HAMMERS away on the back of Shibata’s head! Fans rally, Moriarty suplexes, but Shibata blocks! Shibata powers out but Moriarty kicks low!

Moriarty runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Fans rally, Shibata stomps his legs into working, and he storms up on Moriarty. Shibata drags Moriarty up to whip him to a corner and BOOT! And he fires off more forearms! The ref counts, Shibata runs corner to corner, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Fans fire up for that Shibata signature and he drags Moriarty up. HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Moriarty is still in this but Shibata clamps right on with a chinlock! Moriarty fights to the ROPEBREAK, but that’s his last! Shibata waistlocks. Moriarty switches to roll up, TWO! But Moriarty rolls with to get the BORDER CITY STRETCH!!

Shibata endures, Moriarty pulls him back, but fans rally up. Shibata rolls things to a cover, TWO! Moriarty ROCKS Shibata, winds up, but Shibata ROCKS Moriarty! And then SLEEPER!! Shibata sits Moriarty down, runs, PENALTY KICK!! Cover, Shibata wins!!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall (still ROH Pure Champion)

Just past nine minutes and Shibata finishes things off, but wait! Daniel Garcia is here! The Dragonslayer is a former ROH Pure Champion, and he’s walking out right to the ring! Garcia steps in, he swaggers up to Shibata, and it is clear this is what’s next for Shibata. Shibata raises the belt to signal his accepting the challenge, will The Wrestler put down this sports… enner-tay-ner?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, though I’m surprised this wasn’t just a Battle of the Belts special. Excalibur said it himself on commentary in the main event, but it was great to start off with the epitome of lucha libre and finish on Strong Style technical wrestling. The AAA Mega Championship was a great opener, and was definitely another instance where I’m grateful we can pause things because they were going fast and furious. Or maybe at Flash speeds, since that’s a Warner Brothers movie they could plug. But as I figured going into this, all the champions retained, since none of these were AEW titles (directly, since ROH is a subsidiary of AEW now).

The NJPW World Television Championship continues to be a great title to watch because of the 15 minute time limit speeding things up. Likewise, ZSJ is always a great wrestler to watch, but so hard to write for cuz he has the biggest collection of named signature moves/holds of any wrestler I’ve seen. I had to double check what he was using to make Action tap, because I keep thinking things are Clarky Cat when they’re not Clarky Cat. ZSJ is setting a very high bar for this title, maybe he retains against Cobb at Dominion or maybe he loses, but it’s going to be hard for the second-ever NJPW World TV Champion to match what ZSJ has done.

Great first title defense for Willow and this title, she and Emi put on a great match. I wonder when Willow has her first defense on NJPW Strong, and who she’ll be facing. And we got a great Pure Championship match to finish, and I’m surprised it was so quick, even compared to the NJPW World TV Championship match. But great win for Shibata, I like that Garcia is stepping up, and that’s going to be an awesome match. I don’t know if they’re going to wait until Death Before Dishonor in July for that match, but knowing AEW and ROH, they can find a way to stretch things out. Especially with Garcia also busy being part of JAS and doing JAS things.

My Score: 8.7/10

Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS The Lucha Brothers & Bandido!

Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, along with Bryan Danielson, were victorious at Double or Nothing in Anarchy in the Arena II, but they had some help at the end. We’ll hear from dirty Don and turncoat Takeshita later, because right now, the BCC want to unleash #DeathJitsu on the ROH World Tag Team Champions & The Most Wanted! Will the Maniac, the Swiss Superman and the Decoder prove they’re ready for more violence?

Fans are fired up for the Lucha Bros & Bandido but the BCC isn’t amused. The trios sort out but then everyone starts shoving. Then they start brawling!

Yuta snap suplexes Bandido up and over, then drags Bandido back up. He fists bumps Claudio, puts Bandido in the ring, then tags Moxley. Moxley keeps Bandido from the corner with a facelock, but fans rally up. Bandido fights to his feet, only for Moxley to HALF HATCH! Moxley then tags Claudio in, they stomps Bandido, then Claudio grabs an arm to grind it down. Bandido endures, fights to the ROPEBREAK, but Claudio brings him up. Bandido throws body shots but Claudio chinbars to keep him from the corner. Claudio whips and CLOBBERS Bandido, then flexes. Tag to Moxley and the BCC stomp Bandido again.

Moxley gets the legs to stomp Bandido int he stomach. Moxley then turns Bandido with a HALF CRAB! Bandido reaches out, Yuta tries to keep the rope from him but the ref reprimands. Fans rally up, Bandido gets the ROPEBREAK! Moxley lets go to bring Bandido up and he throws knee after knee. Moxley whips, Bandido sunset flips, but Moxley rolls through to KNEE Bandido down! Cover, TWO, but Moxley gets the arms for DRAGON STOMPS! Moxley drags Bandido to a cover, TWO! Moxley grabs an arm to hammerlock it and grind Bandido down.

Claudio returns, Penta dodges and SLINGBLADES! Penta goes to a corner, Claudio runs in but Penta pops him up into a headstand, to SUPERKICK him down! Penta then uses Claudio to victory roll and jump, DDT for Moxley! Claudio LARIATS in return!! Fans fire up again as Claudio stirs. Claudio drags Penta back but Penta kicks him away. Hot tags to Yuta and Bandido! Yuta and Bandido fire forearms back and forth!

The fans are on Bandido’s side but Yuta ROCKS him! Yuta eggs Bandido on, and the forearms go back and forth again! Bryan says Yuta’s technique is the advantage, but Bandido starts using speed! The forearms keep going and the fans fire up! Yuta BITES Bandido’s forehead! Yuta runs, into a DROPKICK! Bandido throws off the shirt and fans are thunderous again!

Bryan celebrates with his guys, though the fans aren’t as happy about it. Will the BCC soon look to take over AEW one division at a time?


Backstage interview with The Elite.

Alex Marvez is with Hangman Page and the Young Bucks while Matt Jackson is having his foot taped up. Anarchy in the Arena II was perhaps one of the most brutal matches in AEW history, what is the status of Matt and the rest of the team three days later? Matt says a long time ago, he told Hangman that he brings out the good in them. Safe to say, after Sunday, the BCC bring out the worst in them. Never thought the day would come where Matt would try to melt the face of another man with an explosive sneaker, and alas, here we are.

Nick, a big bandage on his forehead, recounts Hangman saying that they are the heart, the soul and the spirit of AEW. Not one setback is gonna keep them down! Hangman says they are still standing, still swinging, and still breathing! To be a group that prides themselves on being the best, the BCC sure love to use numbers. But the truth is- Wait, in walks the Dark Order. They tell Hangman, “Good to see you.” Oh, did Matt hurt his foot? Silver says Hangman is with his new-old best friends, they should probably just go. Sorry about that. Hangman wants to respond to that, but Marvez has one more question.

It has been said, rumored, that Kenny Omega has left the country and gone home to Canada based on everything that’s happened the last few weeks. Any word on that? Hangman says Kenny is hurt, he is pissed, and yes he is out of the country, but he’s not in Canada. Hangman excuses himself to chase after The Dark Order, what is the status of that friendship? What is the status of The Cleaner after further betrayal by men he once called friends?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Double or Nothing is in the rearview mirror, and he welcomes out two men who were very active that night, Jay White & Juice Robinson, Bullet Club Gold! The Switchblade & Rock Hard make their way out, and White says the money’s here! Schiavone says their issue with Ricky Starks seems never ending. They get in close and he says they attacked Starks backstage! White starts by saying that Double or Nothing was a great night. Fans cheer and White applauds, too. But White bets Starks feels he’s on top of the world after he eliminated Jay & Juice from the battle royal.

But as a reminder to everyone, especially to Ricky Starks, he’s not the International Champion. he lost that battle royal just like he lost to White. And Juice says that brings them to FTR! BCG wants to know, WHY, Dax & Cash, did you come to the aid of “sweet boy” Ricky? It doesn’t make sense! There’s no way FTR are friends with Ricky Starks, because we all know Ricky Starks ain’t got no friends! White says we also know FTR are “a couple of Southern boys,” so maybe they’re a little bit slow. And they look dumb, too, have you seen them? You heard them talk? They sound pretty dumb, too!

White just didn’t actually think they were dumb enough to get in the Bang Bang Gang’s business! But wait, here comes FTR! Dax & Cash are still AEW World Tag Team Champions after Mark Briscoe saw who were his real friends on Sunday night. The champs get in the ring but White uses Schiavone as a shield. Seems FTR are that dumb. Juice says keep this cordial. This isn’t them being dumb, they’re here to apologize! White isn’t so sure, but maybe Juice is on to something. Maybe they’re also here because they wanna join BULLET CLUB GOLD~! Yeah? Huh? White says FTR are ready to be some Gold members!

So do they wanna join the top shelf gunslingers? Top Shelf Top Guys! If they wanted to join, all they had to do was ask. Just make sure you do it politely. White holds out the mic to Dax, then drops it as he reaches out. Fans boo and Dax glares at White. But then Juice sucker punches Dax! FISTFUL O’ SILVER DOLLARS!! Cash TACKLES Juice, but White goes after Cash! The BCG mug Cash while Dax writhes, clutching his jaw! Juice drags Dax up, JUICE IS LOOSE!! “Take that!” White gets Cash for a BLADERUNNER!! “That’s what you get!!” But here comes Starks! Starks runs BCG off and grabs the mic.

“Hey you two cowards! I’m sick of you two every single week! So how about this? You keep that jabroni ass freak in the back, and you and me, Jay, we finish it next week on Dynamite! YOU PUNK ASS B*TCH!!” The Absolute throws out the ultimatum, will he and King Switch finally put an end to this?


Tony Khan has an announcement for AEW Collision.

“It’s great to be here tonight in San Diego. The last few weeks, we made some announcements regarding the debut of AEW Saturday Night Collision, starting June 17th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. I’m here tonight to give you a little more information about the debut of AEW Collision. I’m here to announce that AEW Collision, beginning June 17th, will feature… CM Punk!” Fans go wild hearing that! The Best in the World, the polarizing Plus Delta of AEW, is making his return in his hometown! What kind of collision are we going to say for that debut episode?


Triple Threat: Swerve Strickland VS “Big Bill” Morrissey VS Trent Beretta!

The Blackjack Battle Royal was a bust for everyone hoping to take the title off Orange Cassidy, but there was a lot of beef between these three men during all the chaos. Who scores a much easier win under 33% odds versus the one in 21?

The bell rings and Swerve bails out so Bill can’t get him. Fans boo but then Bill turns his attention to Trent. Fans fire up and Bill storms up on Trent. Trent slips away to not be cornered, then he CHOPS Bill! Bill scowls and dusts himself off. Bill storms up again, Trent slips away again and headlocks. Bill powers up but Trent holds on. Bill powers out, Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges and DIVES onto Swerve on the outside! Fans fire up as Trent puts Swerve in the ring saying “You’re turn!” He wants Bill to get at Swerve and Bill’s fine with that. Swerve wants Bill to hold on, but then he swings on Bill!

Bill blocks the punch, so Swerve kicks a leg. Swerve goes to whip but Bill blocks that, too! Bill whips, Swerve goes up and around and BOOTS Bill! Trent returns to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Bill just choke grips back! Bill BOOTS Swerve, then shoves Trent to a corner. Bill SPLASHES Swerve, SPLASHES Trent, and repeat! Bill clotheslines Swerve up and out! Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges but Bill FLAPJACKS Trent then BOOTS him down! Fans fire up with Bill while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Bill watches as Trent crawls back in. Bill kicks Trent, drags him up, and CLUBS him back down. Bill then steps out to go after Swerve. Fans fire up as Bill stalks Swerve around the way, then UPPERCUTS him! Swerve CHOPS, Bill TOSSES him to the ramp! Swerve writhes, Trent goes out after Bill and throws body shots. Bill ROCKS Trent with a haymaker! Then he SMACKS Trent off the steps! Trent falls and Bill soaks up the cheers and jeers. Bill stalks Swerve on the ramp, drags him up, and brings him around to SMACK him off the apron! And then CHOPS him against the apron! Swerve sputters and drops to his knees.

Bill gives a toying kick to Swerve, but Swerve comes back with a CHOP! Bill ROCKS Swerve with a right hand! Bill then kicks Trent down. Bill soaks up the cheers and jeers as he brings Swerve around the way, to scoop, but Swerve lips off! Swerve POSTS Bill, Trent SPEARS Bill! Fans fire up but then Swerve RAMS Trent into the railing! Swerve puts Trent on the apron, goes up after him, and fireman’s carries. Trent fights free, but Swerve CHOPS him! Trent ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Trent and Dynamite returns to single picture, right as Trent ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Trent back so the shots keep going!

Fans fire up but Swerve knees low! Swerve fireman’s carries, Trent slips off again, but Swerve fights the half nelson! Swerve throws elbows, Bill gets in the ring and runs that way, Trent pulls Swerve into the path of the BOOT! Down goes Swerve, then Trent SHOTGUNS Bill off the apron! Fans fire up as Trent goes up a corner, to ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Down goes Bill! Fans fire up with Trent but now Swerve goes up to BOOT from the apron! Swerve drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and fans rally up. Trent is in a drop zone, Swerve goes up the corner. But Bill choke grips him! Swerve fights the arm but Bill CHOPS him!

Bill climbs up to join Swerve, choke grips again, but Trent hits Bill low! Trent climbs up, but Bill grabs him, too! But then both Trent & Swerve throat chop! Fans boo, but Trent & Swerve work together to DOUBLE SUPERPLEX Bill!! All three men are down and fans are thunderous! Bill goes to a corner, Swerve and Trent throw forearms again! They go back and forth, Swerve throws body shot after body shot! Swerve runs, but Trent gets around, HALF ‘N’ HALF! Swerve tumbles out, Trent builds speed, but Bill scoops! BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!!! Cover, Swerve HOUSE CALLS! Cover on Bill, TWO?!?!

Bill survives but Swerve rolls to COMPLETE SHOT Trent! Trent sits up, Swerve goes up, KILL- NO, Trent avoids the stomps! To BUSAIKU KNEE!! Trent reels Swerve in, PILEDRIVER!! Cover, BILL BREAKS IT! Bill stalks Trent to the apron and fans fire up. Bill drags Trent up but Trent CHOPS! Bill doesn’t budge, so Trent CHOPS again! Bill clamps onto Trent’s throat, CHOKE SLAM into the ring! But Swerve APRON KILL STOMPS Bill!!! And then roll-up on Trent, Swerve wins!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

The Mogul takes advantage and gets a huge win! Will Swerve soon be aiming for another title shot?


Kris Statlander speaks.

“Today’s date is May 28th, 2023. It’s the PPV, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I am officially cleared. I am your NEW TBS Champion. It’s been a long time coming, and this whole time, I was never really sure if I deserved it. Not sure if I was someone deserving of this moment. It just really shows me how much not only does this place mean to me, but how much I mean to AEW. It’s just so nice to physically hold something to feel like you deserve it for once. Not only am I gonna prove to everyone that they were right, but I’m gonna prove to myself that this is my time. And I’m gonna have the best damn title reign anyone’s ever seen.” But she’s already putting the title on the line, will her time be short?


Renee Paquette is on stage.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass.” Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn are here, and Renee says that unfortunately, thing didn’t go their way in that AEW World Trios Championship match. They asked for this time, so the floor is theirs. Billy says Renee is right, things did not go quite the way they’d planned. But that’s okay! Because anyone can get beat at any given time. Billy’s biggest regret is that he let his guys down. Caster says that Billy shouldn’t blame himself. They win as a team and lose as a team. They won a lot as a trio, undefeated until facing House of Black.

And see, Caster is the best wrestler alive, Bowens is the Five Tool Player, and Billy is the legend! They ARE The Acclaimed, they are the People’s Choice. Bowens says that is right. And their goal remains the same. A few months ago, Acclaimed were screwed outta tag team gold. Fans boo that, but the Acclaimed want gold back! “And this man, this legend, after over 30 YEARS of giving his all to the business, of giving his all to each and every one of you, giving his all to us, this man deserves to hold gold one more time!” Fans love the sound of that! They chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”

Bowens says do not worry about it, Billy, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So the goal remains the same, and the three SCISSOR FINGER~! Will they cut down the House of Black one way or another? Or will the House always win?


Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

The bile rises in his throat as he has to say these names. “Here comes… Don Callis! And… Konosuke Takeshita.” Fans boo as Callis & Takeshita walk their way out to no music, but with highlights of Callis helping the BCC cheat the Elite. Callis & Takeshita go to the ring to join Schiavone, and Schiavone says, “Sunday night, Double or Nothing, not so sure. We talked to Bryan Danielson, whose side are you on? Whose side are you with? One thing we know for sure, you apparently have yourself a new protégé.” Callis grins but fans boo, and Callis says he sincerely hopes that such boos are for Kenny Omega! No, they’re for Callis.

Callis continues to say he is the REAL victim here! He has done everything for Kenny Omega! The booing gets louder! And they’re even flipping Callis off! Callis says Kenny only had what he had because of Callis! The AEW World Championship? All Callis! Kenny chose his friends. Every morning, Callis has to get up and look at the scar on his head! 23 stitches! And Callis blames it all on Kenny! Kenny destroyed Callis’ family! And maybe Callis lost a nephew, but he gained a son in Konosuke Takeshita! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Callis says Takeshita is the best athlete he has ever seen in wrestling! 6’3″, 240 pounds, and you know who he’s better than?

Konosuke is better than Rikidōzan! Better than Antonio Inoki! Better than Keiji Mutoh! And yes, better than Kazuchika Okada! But you know who else he’s better than? We’ll see it very soon, too! Konosuke is better than Kenny Omega! Konosuke gets the mic to tell everyone Japanese that they’re all stupid! Kenny Omega is nothing! And they all know it! Then in English, “We will destroy the Elite! We will destroy Kenny… Omega!” Callis tells Kenny that he destroyed his family so Callis is building a new one! And that new family will cut the Elite out of All Elite Wrestling! Fans boo as hard as they’ve ever booed before, but will that not stop what Callis is planning for Kenny Omega?


Arn Anderson & Wardlow speak.

The Enforcer says that before Double or Nothing and the ladder match, he cut through all the BS and asked Wardlow one question: What are you willing to do to Christian Cage? Everyone’s giving Arn a bunch of hoopla about biting that giant lizard’s thumb. But Wardlow got manhandled, and when you snatch Arn by the neck, what you think’s gonna happen? Wardlow says Luchasaurus found out not to get involved with their business. Arn wants to know what Wardlow’s willing to do, and he answered that. There are no more limits! If Luchasaurus wants to be next, Wardlow will be more than happy to finish the job!


Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin VS The Gates of Agony w/ Prince Nana!

Freshly Squeezed is still the AEW International Champion after facing the steepest odds possible, while the Relentless One could not overcome MJF, Sammy Guevara & Jack Perry all at once to become AEW World Champion. But will this unlikely duo keep going against even this daunting duo in front of them?

The teams sort out, but Bishop Kaun shoves Darby off the corner! And Toa Liona goes after Cassidy with clubbing forearms! The bell rings, Kaun keeps after Darby on the outside, and Cassidy just gets his jacket and shirt off. Kaun CHOPS Darby, Liona pushes Cassidy down, then Liona drags Cassidy up to whip corner to corner. Cassidy tumbles up and out, baits Liona in and shoulders into him. Cassidy bumps Liona off buckles, but Liona just glares at him! Liona drags Cassidy up and into the ring to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Kaun scoops Darby, but Darby slips free to POST Kaun! Darby tags in!

Kaun drags Darby up and over, tags Liona in, and the Gates mug Darby in the corner. Liona paces, the ref reprimands, but Kaun digs his boots into Darby!

Liona gets the legs, yanks Darby up but Darby slips to the outside! Darby HOTSHOTS Liona, but Kaun trips Darby to RAM him into the railing! And then apron! And then railing! And then apron! And then a whip into the railing! Liona rushes around the way to CLOBBER Cassidy!

Fans boo but The Mogul Embassy is pleased while Dynamite goes picture in picture. Kaun drags Darby but he’s deadweight. Kaun gets Darby up and into the ring, covers, TWO! Kaun rains down fists on Darby, lets off to soak up the heat, and then he drags Darby back up. Kaun fishhooks the nose but the ref reprimands. Kaun lets go, Darby goes to a corner, but Kaun fires off on him. Darby hits back, but Kaun kicks and whips to then kitchen sink knee! Kaun stands on Darby for a cover, ONE! Kaun drags Darby over, tags in Liona, and the Gates stomp Darby at the ropes. The ref counts, Liona steps off, then drags Darby back up.

Liona scoops Darby, SLAMS him, then SPLASHES! Darby writhes while Liona looms over him. Liona CLUBS Darby in the side, drags him up and pushes him into the corner. Kaun tags in, Darby is in the ropes, and Kaun kicks him to the floor. Kaun taunts Cassidy, then goes out to stomp away on Darby. Darby scrambles into the ring but Kaun is after him. Kaun stands on Darby’s hands to keep him from reaching Cassidy! Kaun stomps the hands, puts him in the Gates’ corner, then CHOPS him! Darby sputters, drops to a knee, and Kaun taunts Cassidy. Fans rally as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Kaun puts Darby up on the top rope, climbs up behind him, and then scoops for a TOP ROPE BACKBREAKER! Darby writhes on the apron, Liona hits an APRON SENTON! Liona then BLASTS Cassidy, drags Darby up, URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Darby is hanging tough and fans fire up! Tag to Kaun and the Gates circle Darby. Fans rally up but The Gates drag Darby up and high five, but then Darby flops over. The Gates laugh, and Swerve smirks seeing his old rival suffer. But Darby fights back with CHOPS! Liona doesn’t budge! Liona choke grips Darby, he and Kaun throw him to the corner!

Darby comes back, leaps but the Gates catch him to throw him back! Kaun runs in but Darby dropkicks his leg out! Liona runs in, but Darby BOOTS him down!

Cover, Darby & Cassidy win!

Winners: Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin, by pinfall

But the rest of the Mogul Embassy makes their way to the ring! Swerve & Cage glare right at Darby & Cassidy, and Liona & Kaun both get up. But wait! Here comes STIIIIING! The Icon is back, and he has his baseball bat! Fans are thunderous as Sting steps into the ring and the Embassy backs off. Will Swerve’s house have to worry about the showtime?


MJF speaks.

“AEW fans, AEW fans! Oh my God, clock’s ticking and you’re running out of competition. Darby Allin, you sweet, sweet little emo b*tch. Once again, you found yourself victim to a maneuver as simple as a headlock takeover. Now if that’s not telling about my competition around here, I don’t know what is! You are running out of gladiators for me to slay, you are running out of people you could possibly claim that are better than me. And you know it. Once again, it has been made abundantly clear, and this time, in Sin City, that nobody is on the level of the Devil!” Will anyone ever exorcise MJF away from the AEW World Championship?


Tony Schiavone is once again in the ring.

He welcomes us back, and thanks San Diego for being part of this great night. But wait, here comes Hook! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, the undefeated FTW Champion, steps in the ring. Schiavone says Hook once again helped the Hardy Boyz against Ethan Page at Double or Nothing. But then, what is next for Hook? But wait, someone interrupts. It’s Jose of La Faccion Ingobernable! He has Dralistico y Preston Vance with him, and he “apologizes” for interrupting Hook’s time, but this is the only way LFI is gonna get TV time here! There are two studs here who have never been given opportunities the way Hook has.

Fans boo but Jose says they know it’s true. Rush is too dangerous to be on TV, so he isn’t here right now. Salud, Rush. But where are the fans when they need LFI? When LFI is looking for chances and they get NONE? But they’re gonna start taking opportunities! Show this perro what LFI is about! Dralistico & Vance mug Hook, but here comes JUNGLE BOY! Jack Perry has helped Hook out before, and he’s here again, with a chair! JB JAMS Dralistico, JAMS Vance, and then he SMACKS them both down! Jose sneaks up, but JB sees him first. Jose runs away into the ring, but that’s where Hook is!

Hook clinches to hit the EL CAMINO! Jose flops out of the ring, JB joins Hook in the ring, and they fist bump. Will #JungleHook reunite to shut LFI up?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee is with Saraya, Ruby Soho, and the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm. How does it feel this time around to be champion? Oh, c’mon, look at her! She’s having a great time! She has the world title, the world’s best friends, and she couldn’t be doing any better. A lot of people say she’s just very lucky, but luck’s got nothing to do with this. Toni’s been wrestling since she was 13 years old, a child really! Over half her life! That’s because she’s been all over the world, carrying everyone’s bags and doing everything she can to get to this point.

The Outcasts look around this locker room, and they see no one who could carry Toni’s bags. Ruby says Toni is being very humble. No one anywhere could match Toni’s work ethic. Toni is gracing the AEW fans with her presence during the House Rules live shows. And she’ll even defend this title. That is what a fighting champion does! Oh so humble! Saraya loves Toni so much. But really, there is really no one worthy of carrying Toni’s bags. Not at all. But they’ll keep looking out. And as for “luck,” the only lucky ones are the fans. Who will be “lucky” enough to have some #ToniTime this summer?


AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Nyla Rose!

The Galaxy’s Greatest made perhaps the greatest return possible, answering the open challenge of the cocky Jade Cargill. Not only did she end Jade’s reign, she ended the undefeated streak! But will Kris regret putting it all on the line so soon? Or will she start her own incredible reign?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Mama Statlander holds onto her baby!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two tie up. The two are in a deadlock, but then they break. Kris shoves Nyla, they tie up again, and they go around. Nyla puts Kris in a corner, the ref counts, and Nyla lets off. Kris dodges the cheap shot to fire off forearms! Nyla dodges to get some air, but Kris SHOTGUNS Nyla down! Fans fire up, Kris is after Nyla but the scoop doesn’t work. Nyla scoops Kris but she slips free to scoop again! Nyla is still really big, and she scoops Kris to SLAM her! SENTON flops as Kris moves! Kris wraps on the body scissors! Nyla endures, those knee braces are right in the ribs!

Nyla scrambles, gets the ROPEBREAK, and Kris lets go. Kris storms up but Nyla shoulders into her! And bumps her off the buckles! Kris falls and Nyla stalks her. Nyla kicks Kris around, drags her up, and brings her over to ropes. Kris fights the suplex and tries to suplex Nyla! Nyla CLUBS Kris, CLAWS her back, but Kris fights with body shots! Fans rally and Kris still tries a suplex. Nyla knees low, brings Kris around, and snap suplexes her into buckles! We see Taya Valkyrie is watching backstage, surely upset that she didn’t get the TBS title off Jade. Nyla grins as she soaks up the heat and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla taunts Kris, drags her up, and then bumps her off buckles. Nyla stomps Kris, digs her boots in, but the ref counts. Nyla has Kris on the apron before she lets off. Nyla then puts Kris on the ropes to CHOKE and even bend back! Nyla puppets Kris’ mouth, but lets off as the ref counts. Kris flounders, Nyla brings her up to suplex! Cover, ONE!! Nyla grows frustrated, but she stands on Kris before getting a leg. HALF CRAB! Kris endures, reaches out, but Nyla talks trash while she CLUBS away on the knee! Kris crawls, ROPEBREAK! Nyla lets go, Kris goes to a corner, but Nyla RAMS into her!

Nyla pulls the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Nyla lets off and Kris hobbles to another corner. Nyla is after her in the corner with body shots! Nyla then goes corner to corner to ELBOW Kris, and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Kris down with a chinlock. Kris endures the knee in the back, fans rally up, and Kris fights, only for Nyla to CLUB her in the chest! Nyla clamps onto the arms to keep Kris down, but still Kris fights. Fans rally, kris throws body shots and elbows, but Nyla CHOP BLOCKS! Kris falls, Nyla gets that leg, and has a modified Half Crab! Kris endures, so Nyla stomps away on the leg before going back to the Crab!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Kris fights with her free leg. Nyla lets go, Kris kips up, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!! Kris is still in this but Nyla runs, only to miss the splash! Kris runs to DISCUS LARIAT! Nyla stays up to Kris LARIATS again, ROCKS Nyla and ROUNDHOUSES her! Fans fire up with Kris and she runs in at the corner, UPPERCUT! Kris goes side to side, KNEE! Nyla staggers, Kris brings her in, BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Kris is surprised! But Kris pounds the mat and fans rally with her. Kris drags Nyla to a drop zone and climbs up the corner.

Kris reaches the top but Nyla trips her up! Kris hits the buckles on the way down! Nyla runs in to SPLASH! Kris sits down, Nyla calls her shot and runs again, but Kris bails out! Nyla stops the cannonball to go tot he apron, CANNONBALL to the floor! Nyla grins and she brings Kris up to RAM her into railing! Fans boo but Nyla runs in to CANNONBALL against the railing! Nyla puts Kris back in the ring, stalks her, and catches Kris’ haymaker into a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kris survives and now Nyla is surprised! Nyla drags Kris up but Kris JAWBREAKERS! Kris puts Nyla in the drop zone and goes up again!

Fans fire up as Kris aims, to 450 SPLASH!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

The Galaxy’s Greatest has her first win as champion in the books! Taya is not amused, though. Will La Wera Loca get one more shot at that title? Will the third time be the charm? Or will things not go her way now that Mama’s home?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

It’ll be regularly scheduled, 10 PM Eastern on Friday night, but it’s gonna be a CHAMPIONSHIP Friday! The AAA Mega Championship is on the line as El Hijo Del Vikingo defends against Dralistico AND Komander in a Triple Threat! Will the numbers spell disaster for Vikingo in San Diego? And in her first defense, Willow Nightingale puts up the NJPW Strong Women’s Championship against The Queen of Joshi, Emi Sakura! Will the Babe with the Power be too sweet to be sour? Plus, the NJPW World Television Championship makes its AEW Rampage debut as Zack Sabre Jr. defends against Action Andretti!

But that’s not all! Assuming he defeats Alex Coughlin on ROH TV this week, Katsuyori Shibata will defend the ROH Pure Championship against #TAIGASTYLE, Lee Moriarty! Will The Wrestler still be the champion after this week is over?


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

Ricky Starks put out the challenge, and Jay White accepted! In a match where Juice Robinson and FTR are all banned from ringside, The Absolute and the Switchblade will finally settle things 1v1! Plus, after big wins from both men tonight, Orange Cassidy defends the AEW International Championship 1v1 against Swerve Strickland! Will the Mogul Embassy grab up even more gold?


Mixed Tag: Chris Jericho & Saraya VS Adam Cole & Britt Baker!

It would seem the Unsanctioned Match at Double or Nothing was not enough for anyone to end this! The Wizard & The Knight called out the Undisputed Couple for this match, and they obliged! Will Jericho & Saraya be the ones standing tall with a fireball? Or will San Diego be all about The Boom?

Fans sing Judas for Jericho, but Saraya still calls them all losers. The teams sort out and Jericho starts against Cole. Cole and Jericho fire off hands right at the bell! Jericho gets the edge, CHOPS, then CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Cole fires back, Jericho ROCKS him, then puts him in a corner, Jericho ROCKS Cole again and again, whips corner to corner, and Jericho clotheslines! Fans are torn but Saraya says they better cheer! Jericho goes back to Cole, but Cole turns things around to ROCK Jericho with forearm after forearm, then he CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS, Cole CHOPS, they CHOP back and forth!

Jericho gets the edge with those CHOPS, but Cole rakes the eyes! Saraya complains but Cole stalks Jericho. Cole stomps Jericho, digs a boot in, but lets off as the ref counts. Jericho pokes Cole in the eyes! Jericho then throws Cole out, goes out after him, and fans fire up as Jericho whips Cole into railing! Jericho puts Cole back in, stalks him to a corner and CHOPS again! Jericho whips, Cole comes back and he CLOBBERS Jericho! Jericho hurries away, Cole dares him to come back, but Jericho tags out to Saraya. Saraya dares Cole to do something, but fans fire up as Britt steps in! And she fires off on Saraya!

Saraya shoves, Britt dodges and SLINGBLADES! And NORTHERN LIGHTS! Cover, TWO! Britt CLUBS Saraya, brings her up to Alabama Lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Britt revels in the cheers and spells it out, “D! M! D!” Britt then sits Saraya up, runs, but Saraya distracts the ref so Jericho can trip Britt! Fans boo but Cole rushes Jericho! Saraya stomps Britt, the ref keeps Cole from getting at Jericho, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Saraya covers Britt, shouts at the ref, and the ref returns, TWO! Saraya drags Britt up to HEADBUTT her down! Saraya paces around Britt, drags her up, and throws her down. Saraya points to Jericho, they “tag,” and then Jericho eggs Britt on. The ref tells Jericho to get out, that’s not the kind of match this is. Saraya taunts Cole while Jericho exits, and Saraya stomps Britt. Saraya drags Britt around, puts her in the ropes, then goes to the apron to fire off knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off to step back inside and they argue. Jericho talks trash on Britt but she swipes at him! Cole protests but Saraya stomps Britt down.

Saraya drags Britt up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Saraya argues with the ref but the count was fair. Saraya drags Britt into a chinlock stretch but Britt endures. Fans rally, Britt fights up, but Saraya CLUBS her back down! Saraya brings Britt around, CLUBS her, then Saraya “tags” Jericho again. Jericho spells it out, “D! M! D!” then signals the fans can shove it! Saraya stomps Britt, Jericho shouts at Britt, and the ref keeps Cole back. Saraya stands on Britt’s hair, pulls on the arms, but lets off as the ref counts. Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya tosses Britt out. Saraya then goes out, Cole and Jericho shout at each other and the ref is distracted.

Saraya waves to the ramp, and out come the Outcasts! Ruby & Toni stomp away on Britt! Fans boo, Saraya drags Britt into the ring, and they get away with all of that! But HIKARU SHIDA is here! She SMACKS the Outcasts around with the kendo stick and fans fire up! Saraya is furious, but Britt rolls her up! TWO!! Saraya escapes and CLUBS Britt down! Jericho storms in and shouts at Britt, but Britt glares at him. Britt SLAPS Jericho, DECKS Saraya, and tags in Cole! Fans fire up as Cole rallies on Jericho with forearms! Cole whips, Jericho reverses but Cole CLOBBERS him! And ELBOW! And BOOT!

Cole rains down fists, just like at the end of their Unsanctioned match! Jericho pushes Cole away, CHOPS him, but, Cole PELES! Cole whips, Jericho holds ropes and avoids the dropkick! LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives but Jericho scrambles away, hot tag to Saraya! That allows Britt to run in and rally on Saraya! Fans fire up and Britt hits a NECKBREAKER!

Fans fire up more as Jericho sits deep!

Wait! Britt gets her glove! Britt puts the glove on, steps into the ring and she fishhooks Jericho!! Jericho lets Cole go and fans fire up! Britt puts Jericho in the Rings of Saturn! LOCKJAW!!

Cole survives and Jericho can’t believe it! Jericho and Cole throw forearms back and forth and fans rally up. They stand, CHOP and forearm on repeat, and Cole gets the edge!

Saraya and Britt shout for Jericho and Cole, both men crawl for their corners. Hot tag to Saraya and Britt jumps in! Britt and Saraya fire off forearms! Saraya hits low, whips, but Britt holds ropes to then reel Saraya in! Saraya wrenches out, HOOK KICK to the GOOD KNIGHT!! Cover, TWO?!?! Britt survives and shocks Saraya! Jericho has Floyd the Baseball Bat! He aims, swings, but Britt doges and Cole SUPERKICKS! Then Britt SUPERKICKS Saraya! Then they DOUBLE SUPEKRICK Jericho!! Fans are thunderous, Cole goes to the corner and Britt tags him in! Cole drops the kneepad, takes aim, “I told you!”

Jericho sits up, into the BOOM!! Cover, Cole & Britt win!

Winners: Adam C0le & Britt Baker, by pinfall

The Undisputed Couple stands tall! The power of love, but also just all that pent up frustration, wins out in the end, while Jericho throws a fit! Cole dares Jericho to keep fighting then! Jericho throws in a chair, and even the ring bell! Cole and Britt grab those for themselves, and that makes Jericho back off. Can Cole & Britt finally move on from The Wizard and his schemes to go get themselves some gold?

My Thoughts:

A very good aftermath show for AEW after only a very good Double or Nothing. Good promos from Kris Statlander, Wardlow and MJF to follow their title wins. A little surprising that Kris had her first defense so soon but I suppose this gets it out of the way, and it gets Kris going on doing her best to match Jade’s streak. Taya watching backstage makes some sense, and I sense her turning Heel over being denied twice. Sadly, I think Taya is going to go 0-3 for the TBS Champion, because if she didn’t beat Jade, she’s not going to beat the person who beat Jade. And I do appreciate that Wardlow is calling out Luchasaurus, he’s being a proactive champion.

MJF of course isn’t, he’s just expecting AEW to find somebody. But I feel like, with Tony Khan letting us know CM Punk IS returning, that’s just the natural course of things for the world title. AEW Collision’s success is not fully dependent on CM Punk being back, but it will definitely incentivize Chicago fans to show up. But I love that there were plenty of fans who hated that news as there were who loved it in San Diego. And MJF VS Punk is an obvious route given how the Pillars he cheated at Double or Nothing are now going to other stories in the meantime. Sammy was the only absent one, but he’s surely preparing to be a parent.

Darby & Cassidy had an awesome tag match with The Gates of Agony, and I figured Darby & Cassidy would win. Swerve also won an awesome Triple Threat against Bill and Trent, and of course Swerve is moving on to a title. I feel like Swerve should be the one to dethrone Cassidy. He’s got The Mogul Embassy to help him cheat so that technically keeps Cassidy strong, and then Swerve can bring that title into a feud with Darby or in whatever finish we FINALLY get of Swerve VS Keith Lee. Then Jungle Boy returns to teaming with Hook just because there’s no other singles title open. JungleHook VS LFI is still going to be fun, and maybe we get Jungle Boy VS Rush. But honestly, I almost thought JB was gonna turn on Hook there. Heel Jack Perry taking the FTW Championship could be pretty cool.

Great promo from Bullet Club Gold and then great brawl with FTR and Starks. Starks VS White is going to end things one way or another, but I feel like it has to be White’s win. Then BCG VS FTR can be for the AEW World Tag Team Championships going into All In London. Speaking of titles, Championship Rampage is loaded, though I’m surprised there wasn’t just another Battle of the Belts special. I wonder if Battle of the Belts goes away with Collision being on Saturdays. Pretty sure all champions retain, though, because NONE of those titles are AEW property. Also, I feel that’s irresponsible to automatically say it’s Shibata VS Moriarty when Shibata VS Coughlin is airing tomorrow night on ROH.

The Acclaimed had a good promo with Renee on stage, and I figured they’d stick together and try again. They’ll probably choose a Open House Rules stipulation next time, I look forward to something wild from them. Really good promo from The Outcasts, and Storm could face just about anyone in her first defense of the world title. From how things went in the main event, pretty sure it’s Shida since she is still fighting against The Outcasts. Britt & Cole of course win against Jericho & Saraya, but that was a pretty fun Mixed Tag. And if Shida doesn’t beat Storm, I bet we get Britt VS Storm at like All Out or something.

Great opener of BCC VS Lucha Bros & Bandido, and Bryan was pretty good on commentary. I figured BCC would win, they’re going to keep things rolling from Double or Nothing. And good promo from The Elite and Dark Order, because it kept up the continuity from over the years. Hangman saying Kenny was out of the country but not in Canada totally hints at him being in Japan to reconnect with Kota Ibushi, which is definitely the next phase of this.  Elite plus Ibushi VS BCC plus Konosuke, Blood & Guts, that has to be it. And speaking of, Callis and Konosuke had a great promo, especially factoring in that nuclear Heel heat Callis has. Like, every other Heel wishes they had the level of booing, jeering and middle fingers Callis had aimed at him.

My Score: 8.7/10
