AEW shares preshow interview footage.

Alex Marvez talks with Sammy Guevara as he arrives, but the PINNACLE attacks! Shawn Spears SMACKS Sammy with a chair, then looms over him. “Told ya I’d get ya. Compliments of MJF. Good luck next week.” Spears leaves Sammy down in the parking lot, will the Spanish God make sure Maxwell Jacob Friedman pays for this?

 

Hangman Page VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!

The Anxious Millennial Cowboy is tuning out the fact that his former friend, Kenny Omega, is defending the title tonight. But as the current #2 contender, he’ll be up next no matter the main event’s result! Will that help Hangman or hurt him against Team Taz’s big bad behemoth?

The bell rings and the two get forehead to forehead already. Hangman and Hobbs circle, tie up, and Hobbs puts Hangman in a corner. The ref counts, Hobbs shoves Hangman as he lets off but the fans at Daily’s Place is rallying. Hangman ties up with Hobbs, headlocks, but Hobbs powers out and runs Hangman over! Things speed up, Hangman jumps but into Hobbs’ arms! Hobbs RAMS Hangman to a corner, RAMS his shoulder into him over and over, then lets off as the ref counts. Hangman dodges the forearm to fire off forearms of his own! And stomps a mudhole in! Fans fire up with Hangman, and Hangman gets Hobbs for a whip.

Hobbs blocks, whips back, but Hangman KICKS! Hangman runs and LARIATS, but Hobbs stays up! Hangman LARIATS again, and runs again, but Hobbs puts him on the apron. But Hangman aims, fakes Hobbs out, and Hobbs scowls as he walks around outside the ring. Hangman hops down and Hobbs talks trash. Hangman dodges the haymaker but not the BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Fans taunt Hobbs but Hobbs SLAMS Hangman’s arm against barriers! Hobbs undoes the AEW banner to throw it on Hangman and fire off body shots. Hobbs refreshes the count and wraps Hangman’s arm in the railing!

The ref reprimands, Hobbs lets off, but Hobbs KICKS the railing! The arm gets tweaked, Hobbs puts Hangman in a corner and fires off. Hangman hits back but Hobbs kicks low! Hobbs wraps the arm on ropes, the ref counts, and Hobbs CLUBS Hangman as he lets go! Hobbs brings Hangman up for a BIG suplex! Hobbs looms over Hangman, and hits a FALLING HEADBUTT! Fans rally for Hangman but Hobbs taunts them as he SLAMS Hangman’s arm on the mat! Hobbs goes to a corner, climbs up, and VADER BOMBS onto boots! Hobbs staggers, Hangman gets up and hurries over to climb up and rain down rights! Fans count but Hangman gets 3 before Hobbs shoves him away!

Hangman lands on his feet, comes back, but Hobbs POSTS Him! Fans boo at Hobbs while cheering Hangman on but Hobbs goes out to stalk Hangman. Hobbs drags Hangman up, bumps him off the apron, and then YANKS Hangman into the post! Fans jeer, Hobbs YANKS Hangman into the post again! Hangman blocks the third attempt and YANKS Hobbs, but Hobbs doesn’t budge! Hangman tumbles, Hobbs refreshes the count, but Hangman POSTS Hobbs in return! Fans rally up as a ring count climbs! Hangman is in at 5 of 10, Hobbs sits up at 6. Hobbs drags himself up while Hangman has a bloody cut on the back of his head! Hobbs is in at 8, Hangman runs over to BOOT him!

Hobbs flounders about, Hangman BOOTS him again! Fans fire up with Hangman while Hobbs still staggers. Hangman runs in again to BOOT a third time! Hobbs still isn’t done?! Hobbs gets mad, even! But Hangman dumps Hobbs out, and TRIANGLE JUMP LARIATS Hobbs to the floor! Hangman PLANCHAS Hobbs down! Fans are fired up again as Hangman gets Hobbs up and into the ring. Hangman gets to the apron, climbs up the corner, and MOONSAULTS! Direct hit and a cover, TWO! Hobbs survives but fans rally up behind Hangman. Hangman waistlocks, Hobbs elbows but Hangman keeps trying.

Hobbs elbows free, whips Hangman in, but misses in the corner! Hangman runs but into Hobbs’ CLOBBERING clothesline! Fans chant, “You Still Suck!” at Hobbs but he stomps Hangman. Hobbs gets Hangman up, tells fans, “So does your mama!” and then scoops for a SLAM! Hobbs goes back to the corner, climbs back up, and FALLING FLOPS! Hangman avoids the headbutt this time and he fires up! Hangman LARIATS Hobbs right off his feet! Cover, TWO!! Hobbs survives and Hangman is frustrated.

Hangman survives and Hobbs can’t believe it! But here come Ricky Starks and Hook! Wait, how do they have the FTW Championship? Brian Cage comes out, grabs Starks and rips his jacket off!

Hangman waistlocks, for a DEAD LIFT GERMAN! And the Alabama to the DEAD EYE!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Taz hates to admit that this was a slobber knocker, as JR says. There are too many problems in Team Taz, how are they going to settle it? But this big win keeps Hangman strong in the running, will he be waiting on the other side of tonight’s main event?

 

AEW stars talk about the coming world title match.

Jungle Boy thinks back to Double or Nothing, 5/30/21, “As soon as the music hit, to hear that roar immediately, it just felt like this was gonna be okay.” JB won the Casino Battle Royal and earned his shot. Excalibur says that Kenny Omega, these last few months, “has become increasingly unhinged.” No one knows how much Omega has deteriorated, but Excalibur feels JB has a very good chance walking out the new champion. “The last time we were on a Saturday, Mr. Brodie Lee shocked the world and became TNT Champion. Jungle Boy, he might be Mr. Saturday Night.” That will have to be seen to be believed! Can JB do it?

 

The Young Bucks and Brandon Cutler speak.

Matt Jackson says, “Greetings and salutations! Look who it is! It’s the Young Bucks! Y’know, the tag team that all the trolls and haters call overrated.” That doesn’t make sense since they’re longest reigning AEW Tag Team Champions in comedy history. That’s right, over 230- Shut up, Brandon. Nick lets Matt continue. What’s made this run even more special and different is the aggression they bring out of their opponents. The Bucks don’t just beat you, they hurt you. Give ’em the list! Yeah, SCU- Shut up, Brandon! They took out SCU. SCU L8R. Jon Moxley. The Bucks’ kids are way cuter than his baby. Rey Fenix. Sorry, amigo. Pac! That poor bastard.

It feels SO good taking out these pricks! Who’s next? Next week! Penta and Eddie Kingston face them, and if they somehow win, they get a title shot at these! But that ain’t happening! Kingston & Penta aren’t a real team! They’re just two singles guys who got thrown together and they said, “Oh look! A team!” Like taking table scraps and trying to pass it off like a gourmet meal! Nick will keep that, Brandon had a good idea. And they know why the Bucks are so certain, right? It’s simple: They’re EVP’s! Extremely Violent People. Maybe Kingston & Penta will be next on the list. BAWK BAWK! See you then!

 

Tony Schiavone and Tully Blanchard are in the ring.

A legend in wrestling, the manager of FTR and The Pinnacle, one of the Four Horsemen, is here! And Schiavone is honored to welcome a lucha libre legend, the one and only KONNAN! Konnan makes his way out to the ring, stares Tully down right away, and Schiavone has things stay peaceful as a “gentlemen’s discussion.” Tully says the last time he saw Konnan, he was trying to interfere in a situation in a bar room. But because of his legend status, Tully says it is his pleasure to let Konnan go first. Oh, so we’re playing games already? Konnan heard Tully imposes his will on people, but he won’t be intimidated.

Neither will Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana & Ortiz. They’ve been stabbed, shot, kidnapped, strangled and left for dead. They’re still here, because that’s how they’re built. Konnan tells Tully that FTR tried to say they had the same upbringing. They’re from North Carolina, “where men are men and the sheep are scared,” but Konnan explains this: It’s not the same thing tipping cows and getting into bar fights and barn fights, and all that vegan beef you have out there in the woods, as it is surviving the streets of New York, enduring racial profiling while gang members hunt you down every day, with men of color are incarcerated at five times the rate as their White brethren.

Now Tully is a mentor to FTR. Konnan is a father to Santana & Ortiz. Tully wants his turn but Konnan says hold on, he hasn’t heard it all yet. When Santana so elaborately put it that he lost his biological father, Santana went to Konnan. Konnan was that missing ingredient like arroz con pollo. That’s Spanish, so learn it, Tully, because one day, you’re gonna have to learn to communicate with your grandkids, wink wink. Tully knows very much about Spanish, and very much about Konnan cuz he did his research. As great a star as Konnan was, he obviously doesn’t know who he’s dealing with.

Tully has news for Konnan: FTR will be out here and Konnan will be flat! That’ll be all Konnan ever did! One time on AEW Dynamite, one big moment, and then it was over with because FTR ended the game. Well then let Konnan say one more thing: when this is all said and done, Tully will be happy to know Walmart is still hiring greeters. And also, remember that PNP are like scarecrows: outstanding in their field. 5150, hasta la muerte! And since Konnan figured Tully would have his guys, Konnan has his guys! C’mon out, boys! Santana & Ortiz makes their entrances first, but Tully says, “I’ll tell you what.” He knew a bit about Konnan, and so look at the big screen!

PNP are already down and out backstage?! The two that came out were FTR IN DISGUISE! They attack Konnan! Tully tells them to finish this, and they get Konnan up for the MIND BREAKER!! NOW WHAT, BIG BOY!? Tully and FTR mock Konnan and the Inner Circle, and mockingly pray for forgiveness. Fans boo as The Pinnacle gets the upper hand on The Inner Circle again tonight, will there be a much more violent response?

 

Matt Sydal w/ Mike Sydal VS Dante Martin!

A rematch from Dark classic on YouTube, surely this high-flying, physics defying showdown will be dynamite! But while the third eye guided Sydal to a win then, will Angel Dorado flip more than just the script on him?

“EXCUSE ME!!” Oh no, Vickie Guerrero is managing Top Flight now?! She knows the fans were waiting to see this match but she is here to introduce to us the future of AEW, Andrade El Idolo! Oh, well, alright. Andrade struts his way out to the ring, and Vickie says they have a HUGE announcement to make. But Vickie’s cut off by the Sydal Brothers making their entrance. Vickie keeps Andrade calm, and they let their announcement wait for later. Matt Sydal gets in the ring with Dante and the bell rings!

Sydal and Dante get face to face, circle around and then tie up. Sydal waistlocks, headlocks, shifts to a hammerlock, then to a facelock. Dante slips out to get a facelock of his own, but Sydal wrenches and wrenches. Dante headlocks to a takeover, but Sydal fights up. Sydal has the arm, wrenches again but again Dante headlocks. Sydal shifts to a wristlock to arm-drag out, then he wrenches again. Sydal steps through, snapmares but Dante handsprings to flying-mare! Sydal gets up, Dante hurdles as things speed up, low-rope springboard dropkick! Dante covers, TWO! Dante gets Sydal to another headlock takeover, but Sydal works on a headscissor.

Sydal fights up, powers out but Dante leaps to headscissor! Dante runs in, Sydal puts him on the apron but Dante ducks the haymaker to give a haymaker! Dante jumps back in but into the WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Sydal keeps his cool as fans rally for “Top Flight!” Sydal KICKS a leg, Dante gets to a corner, Sydal KICKS him again! Sydal drops knees on the knee, then does it again. Dante kicks Sydal but Sydal comes back with a STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Sydal keeps on Dante, brings him up but Dante throws body shots. Dante ROCKS Sydal, then catches him for a spin and scoop, INVERTED SIDEWALK SLAM! BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Dante keeps cool as he paces about. Sydal sits up, Dante brings him up to put in a corner for forearms. Dante whips corner to corner, Sydal reverses and back elbows! Sydal whips corner to corner now and follows up with a clothesline! Sydal goes corner to corner to SLIDING KNEE! Dante flounders, Sydal gets the legs and hooks them up for a Bow ‘n’ Arrow! Dante endures being bent back, reaches and fights, and gets free. Sydal keeps hold of the leg to SMASH the knee!

Dante clutches his leg while Sydal grits his teeth. Sydal gets Dante up, reels him in, cobra clutch Russian Leg Sweep! To the Cobra Clutch Stretch! Inverted Half Crab! Dante fights with his good arm and elbows Sydal away! Sydal goes to a corner, Dante runs in but Sydal BOOTS him down! Dante flops out of the ring, Sydal goes out after and fans fire up! But Dante rolls back, headstand to headscissors! Mike checks on Matt as AEW goes back to single picture. Dante crawls away while Mike coaches Matt up. Matt drags himself up and into the ring, as does Dante. Fans rally, Matt gets the legs for a figure four, modified Deathlock! Dante crawls back and gets the ropebreak!

Sydal lets go, firers himself up and gets Dante up. Dante throws body shots, Sydal CHOPS and CHOPS, but Dante blocks a kick to CHOP back! Dante KICKS away on Sydal’s leg, blocks another kick and pops Sydal up to a fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY BOMB! Cover, TWO! Sydal survives but fans rally and duel. Dante goes to a corner, Sydal runs in but Dante slips out to the apron. Dante ROCKS then GAMANGIRIS Sydal! Dante jumps and jumps, TRIANGLE QUEBRADA! Cover, TWO!! Sydal narrowly escapes and bails out while Dante catches his breath. “This is Awesome!” as both men are on opposite ends of the same corner. Dante climbs, Sydal climbs, they start brawling!

Dante CLUBS Sydal, adjusts position, but Sydal fights him off! BACK HAND sends Dante down! Sydal adjusts, METEORA SMASHER! Cover, TWO!?!? Dante survives and Sydal can’t believe it! Fans rally up again, Dante crawls and Sydal runs in, but Dante ducks the kick! Dante swings, misses, but comes back with a HIGH sunset flip! TWO!! Dante hurries to his feet, and TIGHT SPIRAL STUNNERS!! Cover, TWO!?! Sydal still survives and Dante is beside himself! Dante climbs a corner, but has to leap over Sydal! The leg jams, Sydal ROUNDHOUSES! LIGHTNING SPIRAL!! Cover, Sydal wins!

Winner: Matt Sydal, by pinfall

That was definitely a level up from their first showdown, but it was still Sydal’s victory! But is this still a sign of the bright future Dante has?

 

Jungle Boy speaks.

“I’m gonna go ahead and say that tonight feels like maybe the biggest night of my entire life.” Before he can elaborate, Christian Cage walks over to say it IS going to be the biggest night of JB’s life. JB asks if Christian’s alright, given the issues with Matt Hardy. Yeah, Matt will be around, but tonight is JB’s night. Is he happy? Yeah, but nervous, too. Understandable. JB shouldn’t be happy yet, he should be pissed. There are those who think JB doesn’t deserve to be in this position, and that includes Kenny Omega. Everything JB’s done, every sacrifice and accomplishment, has led him here. Kenny’s saying the things he’s been saying because he sees JB as a threat.

Christian tells JB that he already “shocked the world” once by winning the Casino Battle Royal. Now it’s time to shock them again by winning the world title! JB thanks Christian for those words, but will they help him overcome The Cleaner and his conniving crew?

 

Mark Sterling and Jade Cargill speak.

“The monetization of the marketing multiverse is rolling on with #JadeBrand.” This week finally got them an agreement with AEW Shop and a 10% off deal on both of Jade’s merch shirts. Use the code, “THATB” and don’t ever say she never did anything for you. You could get something like this Dark Order shirt for full price, but why would you want trash like this? Mark can’t rip the shirt so Jade takes care of it for him. And Mark is just now learning that they’ve sold “a ton,” and almost completely out of the XXL, which makes a lot of sense because they’re wrestling fans. But if you buy one of the two shirts, you can look like the star that she is.

Jade corrects Mark there: She is one of a kind, and undefeated. No one looks like her, because she is THAT BITCH. Will Jade rip through the competition just like she did that shirt?

 

Alex Marvez interviews The Pinnacle.

Specifically, he is here with MJF, Wardlow and Shawn Spears. MJF interrupts, mockingly saying he didn’t realize fans tuned in to listen to Marvez. Oh wait they don’t! They tune in for him. “Thanks, pig vomit.” But hey everybody! There’s a part of MJF deep down, aka pinkie toe, that knows the fans are upset over his attack to Chris Jericho’s already damaged elbow. There’s also part of him that sees why they’re a smidgen upset that his good friend, The Chair Man, bashed Sammy with that chair. That was great, though! High-ten. But the one thing MJF can’t wrap even his beautiful brain around is why we’re upset over what MJF did to Dean Malenko.

Allow MJF to be honest since we can’t be honest: Dean is so old, when he was a kid, rainbows were in black ‘n’ white. That’s northwards of 60, with a bad heart and Parkinson’s. Now do fans really think someone in that state should even be involved in an industry as dangerous as pro-wrestling? Fans throw rocks when they should be throwing flowers and thanks. MJF gave Malenko what he deserves: an early retirement. You’re welcome, Dean. But here comes the Inner Circle! Jericho and Jake Hager, the only ones left, fight The Pinnacle 3v2 and things spill further backstage! MJF throws what he can but Jericho hits him back with a trash can!

Things start going towards gorilla and fans fire up as Hager brawls with Wardlow AND Spears on the stage! Then to the ring! Jericho hurries after them, MJF scurrying around like the rat he is! Spears goes after Jericho but Jericho throws hands! MJF wraps a sleeper hold on but Jericho fights off! Spears goes after Hager while Jericho mugs MJF! Jericho DECKS Wardlow! MJF knees low and throws hands again but Jericho keeps going. Wardlow stomps Hager, but then helps MJF mug Jericho! Fans boo, MJF boasts while Wardlow and Spears keep going. MJF digs his boots into Jericho, then gets the bad arm! Spears brings in a chair!

But here comes Sammy Guevara! He wasn’t beat up as bad as Pinnacle hoped! GAMANGIRI to Wardlow, SPEARS to Spears! Wardlow drags Sammy up but gets a JUJMPING KNEE! And a CHAIRSHOT!! MJF steps up but runs away before Sammy can get him! Spears staggers up into a CHAIRSHOT! The Spanish God has gotten just some of his vengeance, but he gets a mic to shout at MJF! “Hey, a**hole, you messed with the wrong guy! On Wednesday, everybody finds out what I already know: That they chose the wrong guy!” The wrong guy for the action figures, for the posters. MJF loves to say he’s better than someone and you know it? Because he is!

Oh well guess what, b*tch, Sammy will show us why he is the BEST EVER and you know it! Will the Salt of the Earth lose his grit when Sammy grinds him into the dust?

 

Miro speaks.

“Before I get to Brian Pillman Jr, I want to thank God for keep making me powerful and my hot wife flexible.” Miro promises to use his power only on those who deserve it. People who try to prevent him from helping a woman in need, or people who try to attack him for no reason. People like BPJ. “Brian, you may be ranked number one in the tag team division, but you’re about to find out that standing between a righteous man and his path is like standing between a cleaver and its meat.” BPJ did not respect his champion, and they’re going to talk about that next Wednesday on Dynamite, 1v1.

“You are going to find out why I am the redeemer, why I am God’s Favorite Champion!” Go ahead and lie to the world and say you’re not afraid. But we know that the bravest thing BPJ has ever done is thinking about attacking Miro. The stupidest thing was actually doing it. Will the Best Man prove why he’s the worst person to face in the ring?

 

Ethan Page w/ Scorpio Sky VS Bear Bronson w/ Bear Boulder!

All Ego is feeling good after he and the Face of the Revolution won a 2v1 that Darby Allin still almost won. But with Bear Country reunited, will Bronson maul Ethan to drop the Men of the Year down to one man?

The bell rings and Ethan circles with Bronson. Fans rally up, Ethan and Bronson tie up, and are in a deadlock. Bronson powers Ethan back to a corner, the ref counts, and Bronson lets off. Ethan gets a cheap shot in! But Bronson just scowls at Ethan. Bronson puts Ethan back in the corner for furious fists! The fans fire up but the ref counts, and Bronson lets off at 4. Bronson whips Ethan to ropes and CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Ethan sits up in a daze, Bronson brings him up but Ethan stomps Bronson’s foot! Ethan kicks low, mocks the bear claws, then pie faces Bronson. Ethan runs but into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Bronson keeps his cool while Ethan goes to an apron,

Bronson has Ethan and bumps him off buckles, then brings him back the other way to bump him again! Bronson stands Ethan up and fans want that “One More Time!” and Bronson hits Ethan off more buckles! Ethan staggers, Bronson DECKS him! Bronson builds speed, but Scorpio gets Ethan out of the way to take the BEAR TOPE! The ref reprimands Scorpio for that but he’s already paying for it. Ethan staggers up and avoids Bronson, but Boulder is right there! Ethan shouts to the ref that Boulder touched him! The ref keeps Boulder back, but Bronson grabs Ethan! Scorpio CLOBBERS Bronson from behind!! The Men of the Year whip Bronson hard into railing!

Fans boo but Ethan and Scorpio get away with things! Ethan grins as he stalks up to Bronson and rains down rights. The ref reprimands, Ethan lets off to soak up the heat, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Ethan drags Bronson up and bumps him off the apron. Ethan puts Bronson in the ring, stomps him down, and then wraps on a rear bearhug! Bronson endures, Ethan squeezes tighter, but Boulder rallies the fans and coaches Bronson up. Bronson fights free with elbows and both men slowly rise. Ethan kicks a leg out, then stomps Bronson again. Ethan drags Bronson back up for a facelock, and he taunts the fans before he hits a DDT! Cover, TWO! Bronson survives but Ethan keeps his cool. Ethan drags Bronson up but Bronson throws body shots and haymakers! Ethan wobbles, Bronson whips him to a corner then runs in, but Ethan boots him! Bronson just gets mad again!

Ethan dodges Bronson in the corner and ROUNDHOUSES! Ethan runs, rams Bronson with a shoulder, then runs to run Bronson over! Ethan shakes out the arm but gets up to soak up more heat. Ethan mocks the fans booing him and blows them a kiss. Bronson slowly rises as AEW returns to single picture. Ethan reels Bronson in but Bronson back drops free! Bronson gets to a corner as fans rally up, and Ethan hurries over. Bronson throws haymakers and counter punches! Bronson backs Ethan down with forearms, then whips him to a corner! Bronson runs in to SPLASH, and then fires up with the fans! Bronson stands Ethan up to point-blank BOXING LARIATS!

Bronson shoves Ethan to pop-up SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up with Bronson again as he runs to BACK SENTON FLOP! Ethan avoids Bronson, gets him up and goes for another bomb, but Bronson back drops and SITS on Ethan! Cover, TWO!! Ethan survives being squashed but fans rally up for “Bear Country!” Bronson hurries to a corner, climbs up, but Ethan ROCKS him first! Ethan climbs, CLUBS Bronson on the back, then gets Bronson up for a SUPERPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Ethan can’t believe it, but he hurries to get Bronson up. Bronson RAMS Ethan, Ethan BOOTS him away, then Ethan runs, into a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Bronson can’t believe Ethan lives! But he drags Ethan to a drop zone and heads up top again! Fans rally but Scorpio distracts! Boulder yanks Scorpio down to fire off hands! But Ethan LOW BLOWS Bronson! The ref misses that, but doesn’t miss the EXTRA LARGE EGOS EDGE!! Cover, Ethan wins!!

Winner: Ethan Page, by pinfall

The Men of the Year watch each other’s backs and that gave All Ego the edge over Bear Bronson! Scorpio says, “That’s my guy!” Ethan takes the mic to say, “I’m not stupid.” Fans chant, “Yes You Are!” Ethan says no he’s not. Because he knows for a fact that Darby Allin isn’t done with him. And to be honest, pinning Darby is not enough for him, either! Ethan’s said week after week after week that HE is going to be the nail in Darby’s coffin! Ethan will be the nail in Darby’s coffin! So why not just put Darby in one? July 7th, Road Rager in Miami, Ethan VS Darby… IN A COFFIN MATCH!! What a deadly way to start AEW’s red hot summer! Will the Relentless One find a way to survive?

 

Britt Baker talks with Reba/Rebel.

What are some of the things they’d love to ask for? A new car! A yacht! A football team! Maybe a million other things if Tony Khan owed them a favor. But no, Vickie Guerrero goes and asks for a wrestling match! She’s senile already, isn’t she? And Britt’s checked but there’s no insurance that can cover the amount of damage she and Rebel are going to do to her! And Britt already said she’s the face of a whole new era, and that new era has no time for fun ‘n’ games, and certainly not old ladies who think they belong in the ring. Britt doesn’t care who Vickie is, “and excuse me in advance for beating your ass next Wednesday in our tag team match.”

But don’t worry, Britt will send Vickie home with a nice prescription, signed Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. But aren’t they forgetting who is in that match with Vickie? Speaking of which…

Vickie and Nyla Rose respond!

“Britt and Reba, our tag team match is just the appetizer to solidify that Nyla Rose is the #1 contender for the AEW Women’s Title.” At Fyter Fest Night 2, July 21, they’re coming for the title. So be ready! And as for next week, Britt is locked in with the Beast, but you gotta watch out for the claws of the Cougar! Will the Vicious Vixens get a taste for Britt Baker blood before battling for the belt?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Orange Cassidy VS The Bunny w/ The Blade!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is ready to boop the snoots of everyone in her way on the road to the women’s world title! But she’s walking down a dark alley and could end up Down the Rabbit Hole! Will Kris be careful against this rabid Bunny in the ring with her?

The bell rings and Bunny stares Kris down before they circle. They tie up, go around, Kris waistlocks and SLAMS Bunny. Bunny gets up in a huff but Blade tells her it’s alright. Bunny circles with Kris again, they tie up and Kris waistlocks. Bunny pries the hold, gets under and trips Kris to walk all over her. Bunny says Kris ain’t gonna boop her! Kris gets up and arm-drags Bunny around! And again! Kris scoops, Bunny slips out and SLAPS Kris! Kris PELES Bunny back! Bunny staggers, rebounds, but leaps into Kris’ arms and a SLAM! Kris gets Bunny up, brings her around and suplexes high and hard! Fans rally as Kris raises a finger! Kris puts Bunny in a corner, for the BOOP!

Kris ROCKS Bunny, hoists her up top and then climbs up to join her. Kris fires forearms, but Bunny slips under and tucks Kris in! Kris headstands, but Bunny SUPERKICKS her down! Kris tumbles to the floor, Bunny goes around the way and runs in to SHOTGUN Kris into railing! Bunny laughs while Blade shouts at Orange Cassidy that they’re nothing without Best Friends, Trent & Chuck! Bunny stomps Kris and CLAWS her as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bunny sneers at Cassidy, puts Kris in the ring, and stalks Kris to a cover. TWO, and Bunny is annoyed. Bunny stomps Kris, then isolates the hands to stomp the fingers! Kris crawls to ropes but Bunny is on her with a clinch and whip into a buckle! Kris flounders in the corner, Bunny frolics around, then runs in to SLIDING FOREARM! Bunny laughs right at the camera then pushes Kris to a cover. TWO, and Bunny is annoyed again. Bunny rains down fists on Kris, but lets off just as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Bunny KNEES Kris back down! Fans boo but Bunny keeps moving, to clothesline Kris out of the ring! Bunny grins again as she goes back out. Bunny runs in around the way again, into a SPINNING POWERSLAM! Blade is shocked while both women are down! Blade shouts at Cassidy to stay back but Cassidy is still at his corner. The ring count climbs, Kris sits up first and gets in at 5 of 10. Bunny stands up at 6, gets in at 7, and fans rally up as this continues in the ring. Kris and Bunny glare at each other and the haymakers start flying! Faster and faster, Kris gets the edge and fires off CHOPS! Kris fisherman BUSTERS! Cover, TWO!!

Bunny survives, Blade coaches her up, but Kris stands Bunny and gut wrenches. Bunny elbows that off, runs, but into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Bunny still lives and Blade is relieved! Kris drags Bunny to a drop zone, climbs up a corner, but Bunny gets up to SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX Kris off! And SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Bunny can’t believe Kris survives! Blade is pissed, he distracts the ref and sneaks Bunny her knuckle duster! But Cassidy gets those away from Bunny! And puts them in his pocket! Bunny is furious, but Kris gets her for the gut wrench! Tuck and BIG BANG THEORY!! Cover, Kris wins!!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

Freshly Squeezed made the save and Kris got the win fair and square! Cassidy doesn’t have a lot of energy to lift Kris’ hand in celebration, but then BLADE attacks! Cassidy is pissed and hits back but here come The Hybrid2! The Hardy Family Office’s newest thugs- er, members, mug Cassidy! TH2 sit Cassidy up for Blade to take the knuckles back! Blade puts them on, and CRACKS Cassidy across the jaw! TH2 let Cassidy drop and they stand over Cassidy with Blade. With Trent out for neck surgery, is there any chance the Best Friends will ever make the HFO pay?

 

Schiavone interviews QT Marshall backstage.

The Factory’s leader talks about last week where Brock Anderson beat them in his debut. How touching, Father’s Day weekend and all, and Brock giving daddy Arn a big hug. But it gets better! TNT votes Brock Anderson “Wrestler of the Week.” But a couple weeks ago, QT pins Cody Rhodes, but he gets nothing. Though, QT gets it, QT’s daddy isn’t the Enforcer. Schiavone moves things to the upcoming South Beach Strap Match at AEW Dynamite: Road Rager.

Yeah, that’s in a couple weeks, but let’s talk about tonight. Cody isn’t here doing the work like QT! Yes, Cody has Hollywood running around, so maybe someone casts Cody in one of those “geeky superhero movies” so we never have to see Cody again! Then and only then can QT achieve his dream of becoming champion in AEW! Will QT take out all his bitter frustrations out on the American Nightmare?

 

Brian Pillman Jr. speaks.

“The big bad bully of AEW, God’s Favorite Champion, Miro?” Well sounds to BPJ like Miro has a messiah complex. But Miro isn’t here to save anyone. Miro just picking fights with those he thinks he can beat to boost his own ego. BPJ has a complex, it’s called being born on the wrong side of the tracks and fighting for everything he’s ever had! That means fighting for his friends. Miro picked a fight with BPJ, and on Wednesday, BPJ will check that ego and take that TNT Championship! Will Bulletproof also be Miro proof and get himself some gold?

 

Eddie Kingston, Penta El Zero M and Alex Abrahantes speak.

“Matt ‘n’ Nick, are you serious? You’re gonna talk about taking people out?” Took out Fenix, took out Pac, took out Moxy. You guys aren’t built like that. You took them out in wrestling. You didn’t take them out IRL. Kingston’s done that! Y’all gonna challenge Kingston and his once again best friend and talk about taking people out? Kingston learned something about the Bucks. It doesn’t how hard they punch them or kick them or hurt them, the Bucks really care about their egos. Those tag team titles feed their egos. So the only way for these two to hurt the Bucks is to take the titles. And that means first taking them out. Let ’em know, best friend!

Penta speaks to the Bucks in Spanish, and Alex translates that “Young Bucks, you talk a lot about all those that you’ve run over. Well next week, we run over you!” CERO! MIEDO! Will the Bucks put their money where their mouths are? Or will they be too busy getting their teeth kicked in to do it?

 

AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Jungle Boy w/ Jurassic Express!

The Cleaner may deny it up and down that he cheated to defeat two men in one match, Jungle Jack Perry outlasted twenty men fair and square! But now things are 1v1, and for all of Omega’s obnoxious behavior, all his bravado while picking fights and running away, he has to step toe to toe with Jurassic Express’ Tarzan boy! Will AEW enter the #JungleLife? Or does the Invisible Hand have yet another trick up his proverbial sleeve?

The introductions are made, the AEW belt is raised, and we see if JB can make a dent in Omega’s collection of gold!

Omega gets some last pointers from Callis and the Good Brothers but Marko Stunt tells them to back off. Marko gets fired up but the ref EJECTS Jurassic Express!? But then the ref EJECTS The Good Brothers! This is going to be truly 1v1 now! Fans taunt Anderson & Gallows with “Nana na na, hey hey hey! Good bye~!” Omega throws a fit while Callis joins commentary, but JB just shrugs it off. Fans fire up as JB and Omega circle, tie up, and go around. Omega puts JB in a corner, pulls some hair, but the ref counts. Omega smooths the hair out of JB’s pretty face, and then pats him on the shoulder. Fans rally and duel while JB shrugs off Omega’s mind games.

JB and Omega circle, tie up, and Omega pulls hair to get the wrench. Omega has the wristlock, slaps JB around, but JB handsprings and wrenches back! JB gets the wristlock and cranks. Omega grabs at the ref, the ref reprimands, and JB wrenches to WRING Omega out! Omega kips up to throw JB down by his hair! Omega soaks up the heat as JB gets to a corner. Omega throws haymakers in the corner, then CHOPS and CLUBS JB! And again! JB turns things around to CHOP and CHOP, but Omega pokes him in the eyes! Omega whips, JB boots him, and JB knuckle locks to CHOP! JB goes up and up and around, but Omega fireman’s carries! “You Can’t Escape!” But JB does!

Omega elbows JB away, JB comes back to go up and around and arm-drag Omega to then dropkick him! Omega bails out while JB kips up and the fans are fired up! JB builds speed but Omega ducks! JB knew that was coming, but Omega still trips JB up! Omega throws JB into railing, brings him around to throw into more railing, and then drags JB up to put him in the ring. Omega takes his time returning, brings JB up and throws him back out. Fans boo Omega as he stalks JB and AEW goes picture in picture.

Omega gets JB up to whip him, but JB slips through the corner! Omega hurries to find JB but JB SHOTGUN dropkicks Omega down! JB gets up, gets back in, but then comes back to SHOTGUN Omega again! Omega writhes against the railing but JB gets him up with a headlock. JB brings Omega over but Omega carries JB! BACK SUPLEX to the steel steps! Omega took some damage himself, but he gets JB back up to back suplex him into the crowd! JB is dumped in the front row and fans move aside. Some help JB up while Omega goes back to the ring. Fans rally for JB as the ring count climbs and JB drags himself back to ringside.

Omega paces as JB manages to get in the ring at 7 of 10, but Omega CLUBS JB down in the corner. Omega digs his boots in, the ref counts and Omega lets off at 4. Omega drags JB up, JB throws body shots, but Omega CLUBS him down! Omega hushes the crowd so they but not the home audience can hear the CHOP! Omega stands JB up to fireman’s carry, and now “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” Rolling senton to MOONSAULT FLOP! JB dodges, runs back in, BACK SENTON onto knees! Omega was ready! Omega gets JB up, scoops and BACKBREAKERS! Cover as AEW returns to single picture, TWO! JB survives and fans rally up again.

Omega gets JB up against the ropes and CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Omega whips JB to ropes, JB reverses to kick low! Omega blocks the suplex and throws body shots! Omega hooks a leg, but JB fights to an inside cradle! TWO!! JB dodges Omega, comes back to tilt-o-whirl to a SNAP BRAIN BUSTER!! Fans fire up, especially the Perry family watching nearby! Omega and JB rise, JB in a corner. Omega runs in but JB elbows him away! Fans sing Jungle Life as JB CHOPS and forearms Omega! JB whips, Omega reverses, but JB dropkicks a leg out! JB keeps moving, but Omega dodges, and ducks the rebound lariat! JB resists the full nelson to elbow Omega out of the ring!

Omega flounders around ringside, JB builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Omega hits railing! JB keeps moving, and DIVES again! Another direct hit! JB goes for the third but Omega grabs at the tights! JB kicks Omega away, keeps moving, but Omega returns to send JB out! JB lands on the apron, shoulders in and steps in, TORNADO DDT! Omega gets to the apron but JB FLIES!! Direct hit with the tope conjilo! Fans are fired up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” as JB gets Omega up! JB puts Omega in the ring, climbs a corner, and “This is Awesome!” But Omega clips JB’s legs! And CHOPS him! And ROCKS him! Omega climbs up, gets JB up, but JB fights back!

Omega CLUBS JB, and again, and again! And headbutts! Omega stands up on the very top, stands JB up with the fisherman hook, SUPER AOI SHOUDOU!! Cover, TWO!! JB survives and shocks Omega! Omega turns shock into anger and says BANG! Omega runs, but JB dodges the V-Trigger to waistlock! Omega switches, GERMAN, but JB lands on his feet! Omega blocks the superkick, spins but JB SUPERKICKS after all! Omega comes back to V-TRIGGER! And SNAP DRAGON!! That was a low angle, for the V-TRIGGER AGAIN! Omega stands JB back up, Electric Chair lifts, but JB POISON-RANAS!!!

JB moves, builds speed, BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Cover, TWO!!! Omega survives but JB drags him back up. Callis is upset as JB wristlock ripcords, but Omega V-TRIGGERS first! Omega reels JB in, gets him up, POWERBOMB! Flip over and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!?! JB survives and Omega is losing his cool! Omega sits JB up, slaps him around, then takes aim again. V-NO! Drop toehold and a leg hook, SNARE TRAP!!! Omega freaks out but the Good Brothers come back! They’re violating the ringside ban, but so does Jurassic Express! Marko CLOBBERS Gallows then goes after Anderson! Wait, here comes #EliteHunter Frankie Kazarian!!

Kaz and Jurassic Express keep the Good Brothers away from the ring! Omega crawls over, ROPEBREAK! JB lets go reluctantly but he drags Omega back. Omega KICKS JB away! Omega gets up, throws a forearm on JB, but JB comes back with one of his own! Omega forearms again, but so does JB! JB gets the edge, runs, but Omega V-TRIGGERS!! Whip, REBOUND LARIAT from JB!! JB gets Omega up but Omega suplexes to BRAIN BUSTER! Return for earlier and Omega covers, TWO!!?! JB flounders to ropes but Omega takes aim again, for ANOTHER V-TRIGGER! Electric Chair lift, tuck, but JB sunset flips through! TWO!!?! INTO THE SNARE TRAP!!!

Omega endures all over again, reaches out, but he’s fading already! JB holds on tight, but Omega pulls hair and rakes eyes! JB lets go and the ref reprimands but Omega gets away. Callis says that’s what JB gets for having long hair, ignoring that Omega also has long hair. Omega gets to a corner, JB hurries over and kicks at him! JB hoists Omega up top, CHOPS him, and then climbs up to join him. JB stands, Omega ALLEY-OOPS him onto the buckles! Omega goes corner to corner, BLINDSIDE V-TRIGGER into the buckles! Double underhook, TIGER DRIVER 98!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Two and a half, maybe! Electric Chair, tuck, ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, Omega wins!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

Callis says this is why Omega is still the God of Pro-Wrestling! Callis’ biased opinion aside, JB got a lot closer than Omega would’ve ever given him credit for. But wait, is Omega waiting for JB to get back up? Omega’s aiming with that belt, but here comes Christian Cage! Captain Charisma brawls with Omega, DECKS him, then chases him out of the ring! But wait, the HFO has found Christian and they attack! Christian DECKS Kassidy, DECKS Quen, but Hardy DECKS Christian! Hardy wants Christian to get back up, then reels him in for a facelock! But no Twist of Fate! Christian turns Hardy, but the YOUNG BUCKS DOUBLE SUPERKICK Christian down!

The HFO and The Elite are standing tall over all their enemies! And now Hardy hits TWIST OF FATE on Captain Charisma! Private Party mocks Christian looking for the peeps while the Bucks and Omega stand over Jungle Boy. Is this going to be the natural order of things in AEW forever?


My Thoughts:

Another awesome episode! And it’ll be the last non-Wednesday Dynamite for some time so it really went out with a bang. We got great promos to set up the return to Wednesday, from the Bucks & Cutler calling out Kingston & Penta and vice-versa, to QT Marshall hyping up the strap match, to Sterling hyping up Jade’s merch, to Miro and BPJ calling the other out. Britt & Rebel had a very good one, with the smart detail of them ignoring Nyla because they assume they can beat Vickie that easy. Nyla & Vickie had a very good response promo, and I’m thinking Nyla gets the win off Rebel to hype up their title match, which is good to know that it’s going to be Fyter Fest Night 2.

Hangman VS Hobbs was a great opener, and naturally it helps advance the story of Brian Cage VS Ricky Starks at the same time. Hangman wins to stay strong as top contender, as has been his story lately. Hangman is surely on his way to a title match by All Out, as should be the case. And I sensed before that Cage VS Starks was going to be settled in a match for the FTW Championship, and Starks bringing that belt to ringside and trying to use it on Hangman was definitely the official foreshadowing in this story. Winner is champion and stays in Team Taz, loser is kicked out. For that reason, I feel like Team Taz actually chooses sides and helps Starks since Cage isn’t wanting to join in the Heel tactics anymore.

There was a lot of great stuff with The Pinnacle and Inner Circle tonight. Spears’ ambush “before” the show was a good way to set the tone for the rest. Tully and Konnan had a good face to face that of course wasn’t going to stay civil, and while I could tell it wasn’t PNP walking out, it was still a very well executed bait ‘n’ switch on that. This is definitely setting up Santana & Ortiz for the win over FTR in the continuing Best Of series. At the same time, we got a great brawl of the other faction members, but Inner Circle standing tall here makes me think Sammy loses to MJF so that Sammy can beat Spears and then Jericho beats MJF to top this off.

I like that Vickie and Andrade tried to interrupt a match with their announcement, only for it to fail. I feel like that immediately sets up Sydal Brothers VS El Idolo & his mystery partner, which is surely the announcement they’ve been wanting to give. Sydal VS Dante was another awesome match, following their first one on Dark a few weeks ago. Bear Bronson is very much the same, he and Ethan Page had a great match. But of course Ethan wins, he is staying strong so that he and Darby can have their blow-off. A Coffin/Casket match is definitely the perfect choice here, and I guarantee that Scorpio will try to help Ethan, cuing Sting to return and stop that. It might not sit well with Darby, but it’d be quite the shocker if we got Darby VS Sting after this.

Statlander had a very good match with The Bunny Allie, and there was good stuff with Blade and Cassidy getting involved. Statlander wins so she can stay strong in the top 5, but the HFO stands tall over Cassidy to further a rivalry with Best Friends & Friends. And after things with HFO and Christian after the main event, I think Best Friends are going to be allies with Christian to take on Hardy, Private Party & The Blade. And speaking of the main event, we got a good video package and good promo from JB and Christian to hype it up, but the main event speaks for itself. It was amazing stuff, made this episode feel as special as the coming July streak, and there was great “overbooking” with Jurassic Express and Kaz going after The Elite to keep things fair. Omega wins, of course, because he’s going to be the one Hangman takes on at All Out, that is just the way this story should go.

My Score: 9.3/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (11/28/22)

Chicago gets Elevated!

Published

on

Elevation has Thanksgiving leftovers!

AEW continues in Chicago with ten extra helpings of action! Will Matt Hardy & Private Party continue to get that money for The Firm?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • The Bunny VS Blair Onyx; The Bunny wins.
  • Brandon Cutler VS “Man Scout” Jake Manning; Cutler wins.
  • Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Emi Sakura & Maki Itoh; Nyla & Shafir win.
  • Konosuke Takeshita VS Ari Daivari; Takeshita wins.
  • Lee Moriarty w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Robert Anthony; Moriarty wins.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS GPA & Joe Alonzo; Lethal & Singh win.
  • Six Man Tag: Best Friends & Rocky Romero VS Davey Bang, Freedom Ramsey & Yabo; Best Friends & Rocky win.
  • Athena VS Laynie Luck; Athena wins.
  • Six Man Tag: #HardyParty VS Chaos Project & Isaiah Moore; Hardy Party wins.
  • Eddie Kingston & Ortiz VS Aaron Solo & Nick Comoroto w/ The Factory; Eddie & Ortiz win.

QUICK NOTES

Nice to see some of these names back. It’s been a minute since Robert Anthony’s been on an AEW YouTube show, he’ll give Moriarty a real good match. Maki Itoh is always great to have on the show. Satnam Singh having another match is good, it probably means he’s gearing up to get in on a feud soon. And Chaos Project being in a match means Luther is back. Pretty sure Isaiah Moore takes the lose in that match, though, so that Luther’s return is ruined with him or Serpentico looking bad. Though, it’s not like they were looking all that strong, either.

Winners: FTR, by pinfall (still ROH World Tag Team Champions)

Cash & Dax are still the best tag team in the world! But wait, Austin & Colten Gunn come out to mockingly praise the champs. Will the Ass Boys get their turn at the titles come ROH Final Battle?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs speaks.

He’s back home in Oakland, California as he says, “When you open up the Book of Hobbs, you look death in the face. And you read word-for-word, and look in my eyes, you believe the good word. This is life. A life you know nothing about. A life you want nothing a part of. So whatever higher being you believe in, I want you to look up in the sky, I want you to look down low. Just like everyone has taken everything that’s meant something to me, I’m taking everything that means something to you.” Who will Hobbs take from first to be back where he wants to be?

 

Chris Jericho is here!

The Wizard is still Le Champion! After a brutal and bloody battle with Tomohiro Ishii, Jericho is still #THEOCHO! The rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society walks out with him while Chicago sings Judas for them. Jericho and Garcia chest bump just to show that the bloody spot on Jericho’s chest doesn’t bother him. Angelo Parker starts by telling Chicago to pipe down because Cool Hand Ange has something to say: “ALL HONOR THE OCHO~!” Fans are  bit torn on that but it’s the truth. Jericho says, “Is there any doubt that I am the greatest ROH champion of all time? Any doubt?” Fans are again torn.

Jericho says he’s beaten everyone thrown in his way, including in one of the greatest matches in Dynamite history against Tomohiro Ishii! Fans do agree with that a bit. “I’ve bled for this title, I have sweat for this title, I have earned this title. I am The Ocho. And not even Claudio Castagnoli can come out on the stage and give me a cheap shot, not even that’s gonna slow me down!” So the question to everyone is: who will uncrown the king of ROH? The fans? That four-eyes in the fifth row? But wait, here comes Claudio! Jericho’s jaw starts feeling sore again as Claudio says, “Chris, you asked if there’s any doubt that you are the greatest ROH champion. Well, there is no doubt in my mind that you are not.

“I know that I can beat you. I beat you twice! The problem is, I started doubting myself when I couldn’t beat you when it counts. And to me, the most important thing is believing in yourself. When I came here, I wanted to be the best professional wrestler I can be. And I know I am the best professional wrestler when I don’t doubt myself. So to me, I don’t just need to beat you for this ROH World Champion, I have to beat you!” Jericho says, “Okay, you have to beat me. Maybe you should be more worried about the Blackpool Combat Club since they’re falling apart at the seams, Claudio.”

Claudio says that is a problem. He cannot focus on anything else. He hasn’t slept since Saturday and losing to Jericho. Claudio can’t sleep, focus, can barely talk. It all bothers him. He NEEDS a shot at the ROH World Championship. So he wants another shot at Jericho’s title? Should Jericho give Claudio a shot? Chicago seems to think so! Jericho tells Claudio, “You want it? Forget it.” Fans boo and the JAS laughs. Claudio sighs as Jericho says there is nothing Claudio has to offer Jericho. But then Matt Menard says maybe there is something he can offer.

“Daddy Magic has an idea! Claudio, you’re a hell of a professional wrestler. But let’s not forget there was a time when you were a fantastic sports entertainer. I think you would make an excellent addition to the Jericho Appreciation Society. How about that, Chris?” Jericho likes how Daddy Magic thinks! He’s making Jericho’s nipples hard. Jericho tells Claudio that despite the fact Claudio sucker punched him, Jericho will give Claudio that one more chance. BUT if Claudio loses, and he will lose, he will join the JAS! Claudio considers that challenge.

“You’re right. I was a great sports entertainer. And I still am a great sports entertainer. And I would be a tremendous asset to the Jericho Appreciation Society. But I know deep in my heart, despite all my doubts, and I have a feeling you know as well, I’m an even better professional wrestler! Look in my eyes, Chris. Come Final Battle, I will throw you around like a little kid, and I will beat you for that ROH World Championship! I’ll bring honor back to this title, and I will be the NEW ROH World Champion!” Fans like the sound of that! But will December 10th be Claudio’s final battle as a pro-wrestler?

 

Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

Renee Paquette sits with the former champion, and knows she and Hayter had an amazing match at Full Gear. Unfortunately, Toni did lose the title. But Renee wants to talk about how Hayter won. Toni says deep down, she’s actually proud. She always knew Hayter could do it, and at Full Gear, they tore the house down. And they got to see just how tough Hayter is. But we didn’t see Jamie Hayter beat Toni Storm, she needed Britt & Rebel again. And if Hayter can look in the mirror and be cool with that, fine. But Toni could never do that. And that’s the difference between them.

Renee steers things to the news from Dynamite that there is no more “interim” and even Toni’s reign counts as a true world title reign, what is her reaction? Well just look at Toni’s face. She never saw the title as “interim.” She went out there, week after week, holding onto the title as if it was always official, because that is what this division deserves. Then with all of these things, what’s next? Toni broke her face losing the belt, she’ll break it again to get it back. When will the Lightning From Down Under strike back against the Hayter?

 

Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake!

The Relentless Icons won another big PPV tag match, but they’re not slowing down here! Will Darby get back on the singles track against one half of the Workhorsemen?

The bell rings and Darby stares Henry down. Fans rally for Darby, he and Henry slowly circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Henry arm-drags. Darby holds on, fight sup, and arm-drags back. They’re still locked up collar ‘n’ elbow, and Henry fights back up. Darby gets around to a waistlock, Henry switches but Darby switches back. Henry snapmares and KICKS but Darby just smiles. Henry snapmares again and KICKS again, but Darby just stands up. Henry snapmares but Darby cradles, TWO!! Henry knees low and snarls. Henry whips but Darby sunset flips! Henry stays up, drags Darby up in a deadlift suplex, but Darby gest to the apron!

Henry ROCKS Darby, runs, but Darby goes up and over! Darby comes back to DIVE into JD! Scrap Metal takes the hit for the Saint, and Darby gets in. Things speed up, Henry fireman’s carries to HOTSHOT Darby! Henry goes out, SPITS at Darby, then APRON STO’s Darby down! Henry taunts the fans while AEW goes picture in picture.

Henry drags Darby around and CLUBS him on the back. Henry whips Darby hard into railing! Darby drops to his knees and Henry kicks him down. Henry drags Darby back up, puts him in the ring, and watches Sting as he gets back in. Henry paces around while soaking up heat, and then he gives Darby a NECK TWIST! He even holds on after as he falls! Henry KICKS Darby around, wraps him up in a straitjacket stretch, but Darby endures. Darby fights up, knees low and throws body shots. Henry shoves, Darby ducks the kick to fire off palm strikes and a HEADBUTT! Darby hops on but Henry shrugs the Yoshi-tonic off!

Henry waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX, but Darby lands on his feet! Darby ducks ‘n’ dodges to COFFIN- GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Henry is seething but he stalks Darby to a corner. Sting coaches Darby up but Henry whips Darby corner to corner hard! Darby falls in a heap, Henry pats himself on the back. Henry mocks the fans booing him, and he drags Darby up to whip the other way. Darby hits buckles hard again and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Henry has Darby in a Tree of Woe! Henry KICKS away on Darby’s chest, the ref counts, but Henry lets off at 4. Henry soaks up more heat, then runs in to HESITATION DROPKICK! Henry sits Darby up, and then hits a DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and Henry is losing his cool. Henry goes to the corner and climbs up. Darby moves and the King Kong Knee hits mat! Darby runs in to CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Henry survives and slides out of the ring. JD helps Henry around the way but Darby rushes over. Darby puts Henry in, but then Henry distracts the ref so JD can pop-up and CLOBBER Darby!

JD drags Darby back up and puts him in for Henry, but here comes Sting! Henry covers, TWO!! JD turns around, Sting CLOBBERS him! Sting whips JD into railing! Henry is furious at Sting, but he hoists Darby up top. Henry climbs up after Darby and says this is for Sting! SUPERPLEX! And then a roll through to a suplex, but Darby turns it into a SCORPION DEATHDROP! Fans fire up and Darby roars! Darby goes to the corner, he climbs up top, and COFFIN DROPS!! Cover, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Relentless as always, it’s another big win for Darby! Sting joins Darby in the ring to check on him, will they both be rolling to the top of the ranks?

 

Backstage interview with Athena.

Lexi Nair notes that The Fallen Goddess is back from suspension, and Athena asks why was she suspended! “We have this big ass TV, a billionaire boss, modern technology, but yet no footage. What am I supposed to do? I got docked a week’s pay, I’ve been suspended, what else do you need from me?” Maybe an apology to referee, Aubrey Edwards? Oh! A public apology! Well, sorry. Oh, then she’ll be reinstated for Monday. Good, dismissed. Athena scares Lexi off, and then talks to the camera. “I was wondering how long it was going to take you to show up, Mercedes. I beat trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler, and finally you show up!

“So when are you gonna put the ROH Women’s Championship on the line? Cuz I’m waiting, and I’m game.” The Fallen Goddess is aiming for the OG Badass, but will she be the one shot down?

 

Hikaru Shida VS Queen Aminata!

Speaking of returns, The Full Metal Warrior is back in action, and she is surely wanting after more gold! She is still International Ribbon Tag Team Champion and Regina de Wave Champion, but will she find her way back to THE AEW Women’s World Championship?

Wait, before the match begins, The Bunny and Penelope Ford frolic their way out here. What do they have with Shida? Aminata just CLOBBERS her from behind in the distraction! The bell rings, Aminata bumps Shida off buckles, then puts her through the ropes. Aminata goes to the apron to BOOT WASH Shida into the post! Shida flounders, Aminata drags her up and around to Alabama Lift into the- NO, Shida sunset flips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! Aminata escapes, kicks low, and she runs, but Shida follows! Aminata redirects herself but Shida DECKS her! And then FALCONW ARROW!

Shida roars and fans fire up! Shida aims, for the KATANA!! Cover, Shida wins!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The warrior deals with the queen, but what about the Superbad Girls? They back down for now, but will they pounce on their prey soon enough?

 

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

Well, more like this afternoon’s. But the World’s Strongest Man says it was a tag match originally, but was promoted to a Trios Match given the history between LFI and Dark Order. But uh, where’s Preston Vance? John Silver says they really have no idea. Evil Uno is searching, but Alex Reynolds promises Number Ten will be here. The LFI have been annoying the crap out of them for months, so this ends here! But Braxton “The Blade” Sutter says, “Nah nah nah nah! Listen, newsflash, slick! It doesn’t matter if Ten shows up, Fourteen, 26, 37! All we know is the three of us are here to kick ass!”

And Andy “The Butcher” Williams says Blade ain’t lying, there WILL be an ass-kicking party tonight! The only ones invited are The Dark Order! Rush says he is sick and tired of talking, he wants to fight! He is ready to fight! He NEEDS to fight! “Let’s go, perros!” Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will El Toro, Butcher & Blade be satisfied with just Three & Four? Or will Vance come through and back up his friends?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Lexi Nair congratulates them on their title defense, adding to their amazing year. Dax says yes, it has been a great year. But please, let him and Cash handle it from here. Dax says, “What a great ’22 it’s been. I’m told I’ve got 30 seconds. What a great ’22 it’s been, and this is my best friend in the world and I love him more than anybody else, aside from maybe my family. And we have a great legacy as a tag team, but 2022 has done something for me that no other year has done. It has allowed me to etch my name with the greatest wrestlers in the world, so right now, I gotta shoot my shot before the year is done, okay?

“I am challenging for Wednesday night, I challenge the best wrestler in the world. What do you say, Bryan Danielson, huh? Me and you, Wednesday night. Top Guys, out.” This match is NOW official! Will Dax the Ax slay the American Dragon?

 

Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS Rush, The Butcher & The Blade w/ LFI!

Preston Vance may be Number Ten, but he’s been the number one prospect for La Faccion Ingobernable. But he’s also been resisting their offers because of loyalties to the Dark Order. Will he come through for Alex Reynolds & John Silver? Or will El Toro Blanco and his mercenaries make him pay for being so stubborn?

As the Dark Order make their entrance, there is no Number Ten, so this looks to be 3v2. The bell rings, and the brawl is on 3v2! Silver gets mugged and thrown out but Reynolds takes it to Blade! Rush ROCKS Silver, he and Butcher whip Silver into railing! Blade whips Reynolds but Reynolds dodges in the corner to elbow smash! Reynolds keeps moving, FLYING ELBOW and a BOOT! Fans fire up but Butcher anchors Reynolds. Blade CLOBBERS Reynolds, drags him up and puts him in the corner. Blade CHOPS, Rush pulls Reynolds’ hair, and Butcher tags in. They mug Reynolds with a DOUBLE HEADBUTT!

Butcher drags Reynolds up to COHP him back down! Tag back to Blade, Reynolds throws body shots but Blade suplexes him. Reynolds knees free, shoves Blade into Butcher, and he scrambles to tag Silver! Johnny Hungy dodges the mercs to DECK Rush! Silver ROUNDHOUSES Butcher, FLAPJACKS Blade, then runs! Silver ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Butcher! And then he OLYMPIC SLAMS Blade! Fans fire up with the Meat Man, and he runs to DIVE onto Butcher! But Butcher catches him and feeds him to Rush’s HAYMAKER! LFI drags Silver up to put in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

Blade rains down fists, then he tags in Butcher. Butcher stomps Silver, drags him up, and then throws him out! Rush has the spare cables to LASH Silver! And then CHOKE him! The ref is busy keeping Reynolds back and Rush gets away with choking Silver! Rush drags Silver up and CHOPS him, the ref reprimands that, so Rush puts Silver in. Butcher bumps Silver off buckles, CHOPS him more, then stalks him as he crawls on the mat. Butcher brings Silver over, tags in Blade, and the mercs mug Silver. Blade stands Silver up to ROCK him with a right but Silver throws body shots! Silver THROWS Blade out!

Silver crawls but Rush storms in to kick him down. Rush kicks Silver but Silver BOOTS Rush! But Blade trips Reynolds off the apron! Blade hurries away and Butcher CLOBBERS Reynolds! Blade puts Silver in the corner, Rush runs to jump and BOOT! Rush tranquilos while the ref reprimands them all. Blade drags Silver up to KICK him in the back. Blade clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Silver down. Silver endures, fights up, and throws body shots over and over! Silver then KICKS and KICKS and ROCKS Blade! Silver runs, but Blade CLOBBERS him! Tag to Butcher and Butcher drags Silver up to CHOP back down!

Butcher stalks Silver to ropes, drags him back up, and CLUBS him back down. Butcher CHOKES Silver on ropes, and Rush tranquilos while digging his boot in! The ref reprimands them both, Butcher lets off and Rush shrugs. Rampage returns to single picture and Blade tags in. The mercs drag Silver up, fireman’s carry and TOSS, but Silver blocks the kick! Silver spins Blade, SUPERKICKS Butcher, then gets around Blade to STANDING SLICED BREAD! Fans fire up for Silver as he crawls over, but Rush CLOBBERS Reynolds! Fans boo but Rush looms over Silver. Rush kicks Silver around, stomps him, but lets off to argue with the ref.

Bunny talks trash on Silver but here come Uno, Negative One and… YES, NUMBER TEN!! Vance runs to the ring, he gets right up in Rush’s face, and… He CLOBBERS Silver!! Fans boo as Vance is no longer loyal to Dark Order! The mercs hold Uno back, Rush hits BULL’S HORNS on Silver!! Cover, LFI win!! Then Uno is sent hard into the steps! Reynolds rushes in at Vance but Rush CLOBBERS him first! Feed to the DISCUS!! Negative One can’t believe it! His best friend uses his father’s move in this betrayal! Vance flips off Chicago, and Rush drags Uno into the ring. Uno pleads with Vance, but Vance stands him up, for a DISCUS!!

Fans are booing harder as Rush & Vance RIP UP Uno’s mask! They then bring a table to ringside! Reynolds is brought over, Vance and Rush drag him up on the apron, DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM through the table!! Chicago is thunderous with boos and jeers as Vance puts up the Ingobernable fist! Vance walks up the ramp, Negative One asks why, but Vance just throws the mask down at his feet! Number Ten is no more, Preston Vance has shown his true colors! Will this be a new era for LFI in AEW?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, especially for being on at a different time (blame NHL if you wanted this to be on later). FTR VS Top Flight was a great opener, but I figured FTR would win. Ass Boys/Gunn Sons showing up at the end was also a natural move, they’ve been slowly (perhaps too slowly) building to FTR VS Gunns for the ROH World Tag titles and Final Battle is definitely the place to do that. Hell, it’ll be even more obvious should Austin & Colten do something during Dax VS Bryan on Dynamite next week. And speaking of Final Battle, no offense to Claudio, it might’ve just been Chicago being rowdy, but that promo with Jericho wasn’t as crisp as it should’ve been. Jericho VS Claudio II with the stipulation of Claudio joining JAS if he loses is a nice move, and definitely makes it feel like either guy could win.

Great match from Darby VS Henry, but I’m surprised nothing really came of it. I suppose there’s a way to give us Relentless Icons VS Workhorsemen, even though I don’t know what that really does for Darby & Sting. Good promo from Toni Storm, and it was clear that she broke her nose with the puffy black eyes she had. Storm isn’t done with Hayter, clearly, but she’ll have to fight her way up to the front of the line. Ford & Bunny showing up during Shida’s match was an interesting tease, I’m just not sure at what. Perhaps Shida bringing her tag team partner, Ibuki Hoshi, to bring Ice Ribbon Wrestling into AEW’s family of partnerships?

And we got great stuff out of the main event. The Dark Order VS LFI in the main event seemed a bit odd, but it foreshadowed something big happening, so of course Vance turns and joins LFI. It is a shame that The Dark Order has fallen so far since the passing of Mr. Brodie Lee, but I suppose it was inevitable. Vance giving up his mask was obviously more symbolic than anything, as The Dark Order had moved away from everyone wearing masks, and it was really just Vance and Uno. Brodie Lee said to wear a mask, Vance was holding onto that for the memory, but now he doesn’t care because he’s been losing. Vance is going to be a strong addition to LFI, he can be their midcard guy while Rush is a top title guy, and this might be what Vance needs to get up to that level.

My Score: 8.6/10
