PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the Hell in a Cell Kickoff Show!

Join Kayla Braxton, Jerry “The King” Lawler, John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Peter Rosenberg in discussing, analyzing and predicting the action tonight.

 

Sonya Deville joins the panel!

She joins in the discussion on the SmackDown Women’s Championship Hell in a Cell match, Bianca Belair VS Bayley! JBL wishes she was just Rosenberg’s replacement but maybe next time. But what does Sonya think we’ll see between Bianca and Bayley? Bianca is extremely talented as a pure athlete and as a superstar, but Bayley is playing the same old games. Bianca played the games right back, got Bayley back with them, and that forced Bayley to bring out that vicious side we know well. We know what that Bayley is capable of and will be bringing her best, but Bianca is already a big star in the division.

Rosenberg points out Bayley’s tweet from yesterday, where she promises that Bianca’s “idea of ‘Oh wow, WWE? That would be fun to try!’ becomes an ugly reality.” Bayley says this is her world and will see Bianca in Hell! So Bayley is saying that while Bianca is a great athlete, Bayley is going to prove she’s the better wrestler. Sonya says Bayley plays her mind games when she knows she can. And then when it doesn’t work, she goes back to her core of “vicious, aggressive, ruthless” Bayley. Kayla says Bianca has been on a roll but last Friday night, Bianca dared Bayley to get in the Cell. Bayley’s been in the Cell before, so is Bianca getting overzealous? Too much too fast?

King says this overconfidence could be her downfall. Bianca, not having been in the Cell before, has no idea what that’s like, while Bayley does know. There’s a saying and he’ll paraphrase here, “She who laughs last, laughs best.” And he predicts it will be Bayley. JBL agrees, you have to be careful what you wish for. “Hotrod” Roddy Piper and HBK Shawn Michaels played mind games all the time, but they were two of the all time best. Bayley is in that category now. The mean Bayley that was the longest reigning champion has always been there, and JBL predicts that will help her win.

Sonya cannot fault a champion that has stepped up and raised the ante. She respects Bianca calling Bayley out even knowing the experience edge Bayley has, so she’s going Bianca. We will see soon enough if Bianca’s boldEST move is a smart one!

 

The Kickoff Show returns, and Sonya talks Alexa Bliss VS Shayna Baszler.

Kayla for one has never seen Shayna this frazzled, so what exactly is going on? Sonya says there is nothing quite as daunting as this Alexa Bliss and her “maniacal ways.” No one can fully prepare for something like this. But that said, if there is anyone that can handle it, it’ll be Shayna and here’s why. Shayna is a decorated cage fighter and unpredictability is her strong suit. Sonya has the same background, she knows what it’s like to be locked into a cage and get hit in the face. Being able to be on the tip of your toes and be ready for anything is something Shayna is skilled in. Sonya chooses Shayna.

Rosenberg isn’t sure what to say about this. Alexa being this demented, Lily is in “timeout” or something, all that. But Sonya is right, Shayna is one of the few people who could stand in a crazy situation like this, with the pure fight experience she has, and come out of it on top. King counters by saying if we’re talking mind games, the recap package is enough to show that Alexa has gotten under Shayna’s skin. JBL adds that if Rosenberg never knows what to say, he can just stay quiet and let JBL handle things. King continues that when it comes to Alexa, he isn’t sure if she’s a witch, but he’s pretty sure her other car is a broom. Something weird is going on here.

Rosenberg tells JBL, “See? This is what we’ve got. Witchcraft!” And Rosenberg gets what King is saying, this isn’t normal stuff. JBL says Shayna’s complaining, sun in her eyes, shoe was untied, “Wah wah wah,” to avoid taking the blame for her own failures. But Alexa, who is a former champion, is living rent free in Shayna’s head. There is no way Shayna can overcome any of this. Rosenberg gets that, too. He feels Shayna is the one who can handle it, and better her than him. Wow, quoting himself, huh? You can’t use yourself as a source! Kayla puts a final touch on this that this will be unpredictable.

But moving on to the Raw Women’s Championship, Rhea Ripley VS Charlotte Flair. Rhea has been a great champion, just like Bianca, but Charlotte has been coming hard to get the title back. The brawl was wild, it took referees and officials to stop it, but then it kept going until Charlotte got a bloody nose. Charlotte is not happy to say the least. Kayla had Charlotte on today’s special edition of WWE’s The Bump, and Charlotte admitted she sees her younger self in Rhea. This could be good or bad for Rhea. Sonya agrees there. Charlotte is one of the most decorated and dominant champions as a 13 time women’s champion. She’s been around the block, has all the confidence in everything she does.

But that said, Rhea has all that, too! Strength, dominance, and no backdown. Others might, but Rhea has the confidence to go out there. It is experience that might get the win. Rosenberg says being in a position like Rhea’s as the new kid, new champion, she’s kicking butt all over the world, doing her thing. But at the same time, she’s in the early stages of learning how to be a champion, and she has to deal with someone like Charlotte who has a lot of experience. JBL agrees with that point, because this is next level. There is always that one match in a champion’s reign, where it is essentially champion VS champion, even if that other person doesn’t have a title.

This is Charlotte Flair! She is not in Ric’s shadow, she is standing on her own. Rhea is a terrific champion, but this could be her coming out party, if you will. She could show she is the champion, or find out that she still doesn’t stand up to Charlotte’s level. But it is very telling that Charlotte sees something of herself in Rhea. Kayla brings up how last year, we saw something like this play out with NXT. Rhea was the champion, she took on Charlotte, and Charlotte took that title from her. Rhea’s grown a lot, she has a title again, surely she won’t let history repeat itself. King says that everyone who gets in the ring thinks they’ll win. If you don’t, then you won’t. You need that confidence first.

Both Charlotte and Rhea are thinking they’re going to win tonight, but you don’t earn the title of “The Queen” for nothing. Charlotte is The Queen of women’s wrestling, King is not betting against the Queen. Kayla is excited, we’ll see if the Nightmare will finally overcome Charlotte tonight.

 

Backstage interview with Sami Zayn.

Megan Morant asks Sami about his long and storied history about Kevin. Sami asks if Megan knows about “karma.” Yes, karma is when- Sami interrupts and explains, “Karma is the idea that there is an inherent sense of justice in the universe. That things have a way of evening out. And that if you are a good person, an honest person, a truthful person, a liberator, a champion of the people, and dare I say, a borderline saint,” then in this life, you will be rewarded. If you are the opposite, such as a “selfish, backstabbing, corporate co-conspirator piece of trash like Kevin Owens, you will be punished.”

Sami admits he was skeptical about karma after having suffered injustice after injustice. But Sami then saw that karma is real! Because look at Kevin! Look at what’s been happening to him recently! Kevin lost his chances at the WWE Intercontinental Championship, not because of Sami but because of karma! And when Commander Azeez caved in Kevin’s windpipe, that wasn’t thanks to Sami! That was karma! Sami happens to know that Kevin is not 100% tonight! Kevin can barely breathe! If that’s not karma, then what is? So tonight, when Sami defeats Kevin, Sami won’t just be winning a match, no! He’ll get vindication! He’ll be serving cosmic justice! Sami loves karma, but will things turn right back around on him?

 

Mandy Rose w/ Dana Brooke VS Natalya w/ Tamina!

Stemming from the scrap between the #SexyMuscleFriends and the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, the Golden Goddess looks to take the fight to the Queen of Harts! Will Mandy get her and Dana one step closer to a title match? Or will the #BOAT sink the challengers before they even set sail?

They keep moving, Mandy hurdles Natty and drops but Natty jumps over. Natty eggs Mandy on now, then side steps her, only for Mandy to get around and roll her up. TWO, and the two reset again.

Natty powers up, turns around and rains down fists! Mandy and Natty fight in facelocks, and Mandy powers out to get a guillotine, only for Natty to scoop and SLAM Mandy down! Mandy still gets up first and goes after Natty with forearms! Mandy hammers away on Natty’s back, drags her back up, and hooks her up for a modified Octopus Stretch! Natty endures but Dana taunts Natty. Natty powers out, gets around, and puts Mandy in a COBRA TWIST! Mandy endures as Natty cranks and SPANKS her! Mandy powers out and puts Natty in the Cobra Twist!

“Good evening, all you hell raisers out there.”

Thank you for tuning into the station of eternal damnation. You already know who she is: “Your villainous voice of choice; your hellish hostess through Hades; the one you can’t escape.” For first-time listeners, it’s okay to be scared. “Actually, if you ain’t scared, you should be!” The All Mighty is giving the Scottish Warrior one last chance at the dance! And here’s a special shout out to the women ready to step inside. “Slay, my lady warriors, slay!” The Queen haunts the Nightmare, and the one who laughs last will laugh b-E-S-T!

Our mysterious MC will sign off now, but before she goes, she wishes everyone standing at the gates of Hell good luck tonight. They’re gonna need it. Here’s one dedicated to you, as Ozzy Osbourne’s Straight to Hell rocks the ThunderDome! No apologies, no love lost, no more waiting! Hell in a Cell is here!

 

SmackDown Women’s Championship Hell in a Cell Match: Bianca Belair VS Bayley!

The EST wants to finally shut up the rude Role Model once and for all, and is willing to take on perhaps the scariEST match type possible to do it! Bianca has never seen the inside of this sinister structure but Bayley has, is this the boldEST move or the dumbEST?

The Cell is lowered, the introductions are made, and the belt is raised as the blue brand’s gold opens the ThunderDome’s last ride!

Bayley tells Bianca there’s no going back now. But Bianca dares Bayley to bring it already. The two circle, tie up, and Bianca scoops to SLAM Bayley! And scoops to SLAM her again! And then she CLOBBERS Bayley! Bayley bails out and Bianca mockingly asks what’s up. Bayley walks off those slams as Bianca eggs her on. Bianca rushes her at the apron but Bayley HOTSHOTS Bianca down! Bayley hurries to bring out a chair from under the ring! Bayley puts that in the ring, then adds a second chair. But Bianca gets Bayley first, only for Bayley to throw Bianca down by her hair! Bayley smiles as she gets a chair, but they both see the second one!

Bayley kicks the second chair away before Bianca can get it! Not even the fastEST can make up that distance. Bayley taunts Bianca with the one chair, swings, but Bianca drops down to get a sunset flip! TWO, Bianca schoolgirls, ONE! Bayley gets the chair back before Bianca can get it! But Bianca prepares her hair! Bianca forces Bayley to use the chair as a shield to defend against the hair whip! Bayley swings but Bianca dodges, and then shoves Bayley into the corner! Bayley sandwiches the chair between her and buckles, then staggers back into a dropkick! The chair goes into Bayley and Bayley goes down! Bianca is fired up as she dares Bayley to get up. Bayley does, and Bianca RAMS her!

Bianca digs her shoulder into Bayley, hoists her up top, and throws hands on her. Bianca sits Bayley up but Bayley throws furious body shots! Bayley swings but Bianca backflips away! Bianca is right up, stumbles a moment but steadies herself. Bayley still resists, drops down to the apron and SMACKS Bianca off the top of the post! Bayley brings Bianca through ropes to POST her! Then KNEES her into the post! Bayley hurries to cover, TWO! Bianca shows she’s the toughEST, but she’s not invincible as her arm is bothering her now. Bayley is after that arm with a hammerlock, then she RAMS Bianca into more buckles!

Bayley wraps the arm around ropes, clubs away on Bianca, then lets off to watch Bianca flounder away. Bianca tries to hold Bayley off but Bayley CLUBS her down. Bayley steps over the bad arm for a finger-bending mounted armlock! Bayley CLUBS Bianca down, covers, TWO! Bayley gets Bianca back up but Bianca fires off forearms with the good arm! But Bayley has the bad arm for a SHOULDER COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Bianca writhes but Bayley goes out to move the steel steps. Bayley gets the top half up and in, then drags them over to a corner. Bayley goes back for Bianca and drops elbows onto the bad arm.

Bianca rolls towards the steps, Bayley grabs her ponytail and stands on it on the steps! Bayley wants Michael Cole to praise her, but Bianca gets her ponytail free. Bayley mocks Bianca, but Bianca TRIPS Bayley! Bayley lands on her tailbone on the steps! But Bayley snarls and runs to KNEE Bianca in the corner! Cover, TWO! Yep, still the toughEST! Bayley stalks Bianca back towards the steps, grabs the braid again and ties it around the bottom rope! Bianca’s hair is becoming a hindrance now as Bayley has her stuck! Bayley runs, but Bianca uses the rope to trip Bayley! Bayley falls and SMACKS onto the steel steps!

Bayley bails out, Bianca gets free, and she TOSSES the steps! Bayley barely gets out of the way, but Bianca WRECKS her with a dropkick! Bayley runs into a support beam and now she has a bad arm! Bianca digs Bayley’s face into the steel fence to grate her face! But Bayley gets Bianca’s hand and BITES it!! Bianca staggers away in pain and in shock that Bayley would do such a thing! Bayley grabs the bad arm to KICK it against the steel! Bayley leaves Bianca behind to go looking under the ring again. Bayley finds a kendo stick now and mockingly shushes commentary as if it’s a secret. Bianca gets up, and Bayley SMACKS her in the ribs! Wait, that was a DOUBLE stick, two sticks taped together!

Bayley backs off and runs in, to SUNSET BOMB Bianca into the Cell wall! Bayley kicks at Bianca to get out from under her. Bayley says Bianca wanted this match and here it is! Bayley brings out another super kendo stick, like Darth Maul’s lightsaber! And another! Bayley makes the kendo stick line between ring and Cell, just like last year. Bianca comes back with a kendo stick! Bayley dodges but Bianca ROCKS her with a right hand! They play a little cat ‘n’ mouse in and out of the ring. Bayley doesn’t see Bianca waiting, and Bianca gives Bayley a SPINEBUSTER through the double super kendo sticks!! Bianca shoves Bayley back in the ring, covers, TWO!!

Bianca can’t believe Bayley survived, but just because she’s the toughEST doesn’t mean Bayley isn’t tough, too! Bianca finally gets one of those chairs, and she gets in to SMACK Bayley on the back! Bianca sees Bayley go to a corner, runs in at her with the chair, but Bayley BOOTS the chair into Bianca! Bianca is down while Bayley grits her teeth. Bayley gets the chair again, stands it up and puts Bianca’s bad arm through it! Bayley YANKS the arm over and over then JAMS it! Bianca clutches the arm but somehow it still has feeling. Bianca kicks Bayley from below but Bayley grabs the braid to keep Bianca close. Bayley stomps Bianca, then ties the hair to the chair!

Bayley reels Bianca in to then dig her boots in! Bianca endures so Bayley stomps her down! Bayley laughs at Bianca again, and says Bianca is trapped! So Bianca SLAPS Bayley! Bianca drags herself and chair over to ropes. Bayley run sin, but KNEES chair! Bianca got Bayley back and gets up. Bianca is free of the chair and she CHOP BLOCKS the leg! Bianca uses her braid to tie herself to Bayley’s arm! Bianca uses it to reel Bayley in over and over for shoulder after shoulder! Arm-drag and then drag outside, Bayley is thrown into steel! Bianca uses the kendo sticks to SMACK away on Bayley! Then the braid reels Bayley into more steel! Bianca RAMS Bayley into the steel again and again!

Bianca lets Bayley free and slaps her around. Bayley crawls but Bianca has a little laugh now. Bayley wants out but that’s not how HIAC works! Bianca laughs more as Bayley realizes the situation she put herself in. Bianca BOOTS Bayley into the steel! And dribbles her off it! Bayley staggers about, Bianca follows her around the way, but Bayley finds a ladder! Bayley RAMS the ladder into Bianca’s ribs! Bayley puts the ladder into the ring, then she drags Bianca up and into the ring. Bayley gets the ladder, but Bianca grabs the other end! They tug-o-war, and Bianca uses the corner to push off.

Bianca pushes Bayley all the way across the ring, but Bayley moves aside so that the ladder hits post! The ladder jams Bianca in the stomach, Bayley SMACKS Bianca off the rungs! Bayley gets the ladder for herself and she sets it down. Bayley puts Bianca inside the ladder to SLAM it shut on her! Bayley stands on the ladder to squeeze Bianca! Bayley drags Bianca up for a ROSE PLANTER!! But that’s a bit double-edged as Bayley’s leg takes some damage! Bianca rolls away, Bayley drags her back inside the ropes and covers, TWO!!! That was the closEST it could’ve been! Bianca survives and bails out but Bayley pursues.

Bayley drags Bianca in but Bianca sunset flips! TWO, Bayley has the cover and the ropes! TWO and Bayley is furious! Bianca gets back up, Bayley hurries after her, but Bianca blocks the leg takedown! Bianca wants a backslide, Bayley fights it off but swings into a double chicken wing! GlamEST Slam into buckles! Bianca puts Bayley in the drop zone, then presses the ladder down onto her. Bianca is going for broke as she goes up top! Bianca jumps but Bayley rolls with the ladder! Bianca rolls through, comes back and drops a BACK SENTON! Bayley is sandwiched between Bianca and the ladder!!

Bayley writhes and Bianca repositions the ladder. Bianca opens the ladder up, then torture rack lifts Bayley! Bianca aims for the ladder! FULL METAL KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall (still SmackDown Women’s Champion)

That was the nastiEST, wildEST and perhaps greatEST win in Bianca’s career! She is still champion and her legacy is still growing, will there be no denying that Bianca is the b-E-S-T yet?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

Megan congratulates her on her win just now, what was her first HIAC like? That thing is brutal! But she had what it takes to keep the title. Bayley did kick Bianca’s butt, but Bianca will never forgive Bayley for how she treated her. Is Bianca finally through with the obnoxious Role Model’s ridicule?

 

Bobby Lashley and his ladies are partying even now!

MVP wants Bobby Lashley to remember, Drew McIntyre may have skill, and they may be in the Cell, but this is business as usual. The ladies say this is all Lashley! They’re all confident he’ll show McIntyre what’s what, and MVP wants Lashley to get in that zone. Lashley is turning on the Chief Hurt Officer mode, but will it be a little too late against the always-on Scottish Warrior?

 

Alexa Bliss speaks from the Playground.

“Wow! What a painful night for Bayley. But what a great night for Bianca! Anyway, it’s so nice of you guys to join me tonight in Hell… in a Cell!” Speaking of cells, Lily is still serving her timeout. Alexa says Lily is a little naughty, but not nearly as much as Shayna Baszler. Shayna brought all this upon herself, so don’t blame Alexa for what happens next. But there is a lesson to be learned! One: be careful what you wish for. Two: expect the unexpected. When you knock on Alexa’s door, you’ll never know who or what will answer. Will Twisted Lil’ Bliss make the Queen of Spades sorry that she didn’t say she was sorry?

 

Cesaro VS Seth Rollins!

The Swiss Superman already bested The Architect back at WrestleMania 37, and then again soon after. Rollins continues to see things with a more-than-skewed perspective, will Cesaro make him see things right after another spin?

But as Cesaro makes his entrance first, Rollins attacks from behind! Just like #WrestleManiaBacklash and thereafter! Cesaro goes after Rollins and he throws Rollins into barriers! Rollins gets up, they brawl, Cesaro puts Rollins in the ring then hurries in. Rollins is after Cesaro again, Cesaro pulls Rollins’ jacket off him! The ref has them both back off long enough for the bell to ring, and then Rollins leaps into a POWERSLAM! Cesaro rains down furious forearms, Rollins gets up and throws hands. The brawling continues, Rollins gets an edge then whips but Cesaro reverses to back drop!

Cesaro roars and glares at Rollins. Rollins gets up, Cesaro is after him and yanks him up by a leg to put him on the apron. Cesaro runs and BOOTS Rollins down! Rollins flounders up as Cesaro goes out after him. Cesaro storms over but Rollins kicks low. Rollins whips but Cesaro reverses to send Rollins into barriers! Cesaro runs side to side to EuroUpper Rollins down! Cesaro puts Rollins in at 7 of 10, climbs up a corner, and leaps to FLYING AX HANDLE Rollins down! Cover, ONE, and Rollins grimaces. Cesaro CLUBS Rollins, then bumps him off buckles. Rollins staggers, Cesaro throws more forearms and body shots.

Cesaro bumps Rollins off buckles again, then brings him around to EuroUpper! Rollins sputters, Cesaro throws more EuroUppers! The ref check son Rollins but Cesaro just throws more EuroUppers! Rollins kicks low, then gets Cesaro for a BUCKLE SHOT! Rollins scrapes Cesaro’s face on the rope! The ref reprimands, Rollins lets off but Cesaro grabs hair! They scrum in the ropes, the ref pulls them apart but Rollins pokes Cesaro in the eye! And ROCKS him with a right! Rollins waistlocks, Cesaro swings an elbow but Rollins spins Cesaro for a DDT! Cover, ONE!! Cesaro sits up while Rollins seethes. Rollins throws hands on Cesaro then digs his boot into Cesaro at the ropes!

The ref counts, Rollins lets off at 4, and Rollins brings Cesaro up to DECK him! Cesaro sits up again as Rollins winds up. “One punch!” Rollins DECKS Cesaro again, perhaps claiming he’s WWE’s One Punch Man compared to Cesaro’s Superman. Rollins whips, KNEES Cesaro against ropes, then whips back the other ay for another KNEE! Rollins reels Cesaro back in, but Cesaro blocks the suplex. Rollins throws body shots but Cesaro still blocks to suplex Rollins instead! Both men are down, Rollins rolls away to the apron and Cesaro crawls over. Rollins gets up, Cesaro swings on him but Rollins shoulders into Cesaro. Rollins shovels Cesaro up and out!

Cesaro gets up and is a bit punch drunk. Rollins leaps to FLYING KNEE! Cesaro goes down, a ring count starts, and Rollins gets Cesaro up and in at 7 of 10. Rollins aims from the apron, springboards, for another FLYING KNEE! Cover, TWO! Cesaro survives and Rollins is a bit frustrated now. Rollins stalks Cesaro, throws haymakers and keeps Cesaro down. Cesaro gets up again, but Rollins DECKS him again! Rollins sits Cesaro up to dig fingers into Cesaro’s bad eye! The ref counts, Rollins lets off, and he watches Cesaro stagger up. Rollins runs but Cesaro blocks the kick to EuroUpper! Rollins DECKS Cesaro again, but Cesaro’s right back up with another EuroUpper!

Rollins ROCKS Cesaro, Cesaro EuroUppers again! And again! Cesaro backs Rollins down with the flurry of EuroUppers and body shots! Cesaro lets off in the corner and catches his breath. Cesaro blocks Rollins’ clothesline to torture rack and SLAM Rollins down! Cesaro pulls of Rollins’ black glove while stomping him down! Cesaro makes Rollins eat his glove before the RAINMAKER?! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives but Cesaro PUNTS the glove! Cesaro runs in to EuroUpper Rollins in the corner! Whip corner to corner, another EuroUpper! Cesaro keeps moving but into a mule kick! Rollins runs but into a SPINNING POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!!

Cesaro grits his teeth while he and Rollins are still down. Cesaro gets up, grabs Rollins’ leg, but Rollins flails for ropes. Rollins gets the ropebreak but Cesaro yanks him up and reel shim in! Rollins back drops Cesaro out but Cesaro lands on the apron to DECK Rollins! Cesaro climbs a corner, but Rollins springs right up there to join him! Cesaro holds off the superplex with pure power!

Cesaro survives the knockout shot and Rollins is beside himself! Rollins says, “You’re not gonna earn anything over me!

Cesaro endures the armbar, powers up, and scoops Rollins! Rollins knees free, reels Cesaro in, FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! But Rollins runs, BOOMERANG WIZARD! Cover, TWO!!

Rollins is beside himself again as Cesaro still stays in this. Rollins gets up, Cesaro flounders and Rollins aims from a corner. Rollins runs but has to dodge a clothesline! Rollins mule kicks, front kicks and sobats, but runs into a DISCUS! Both men are down but stirring. Rollins crawls to ropes, Cesaro stalks up behind him, and gets him for a SPINEBUSTER! To the SWING!! Around and around Rollins goes for 10, 15, and stops at 18! Cesaro goes for and gets the SHARPSHOOTER! Rollins endures, reaches for ropes, but Cesaro clamps onto that arm for a CROSSFACE! Cesaro rolls to have Rollins in the middle of the ring! Rollins rolls it to a cover, TWO!

Cesaro gets legs again and we’re back to the SHARPSHOOTER!! Rollins fights towards ropes but again Cesaro gets the arm! Cesaro STOMPS the arm down! And then again! And again! Cesaro reels Rollins in but Rollins uses it for a cradle counter! ROLLINS WINS!!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall

Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, the Architect finds a way to survive Cesaro! Rollins celebrates finally getting one on the board, but is this series far from over?

 

We return to the Kickoff Panel!

Kayla likes the “hot start” to the night. She recaps the wins we’ve seen so far, how does King feel about the night? Has it gone the way he thought it would? Not exactly, but he just loves the look on the faces of the losers. That scowl on Cesaro, and of course Bayley! A tough night for Bayley, Rosenberg couldn’t believe that KOD onto a ladder. Brutal for sure. Rollins finds a way and JBL dares someone to follow that. This is a loaded card and he is happy to be here in person. Still much more to go, and we have perhaps the most twisted one up next!

 

Alexa Bliss VS Shayna Baszler w/ Nia Jax & Reginald!

Ever since pulling the rug out from under The Fiend, Twisted Lil’ Bliss and her friend, Lily, have been doing whatever they want to the Raw Women’s Division. It got on the nerves of the Queen of Spades, and her disrespecting the “stupid little doll” has set off Alexa. Will there be no running and no hiding from what’s coming?

Sarah interviews Shayna, along with Nia Jax and Reginald, before the entrance. Can they explain in their own words what is going on with Shayna, Alexa and Lily? Shayna tells Sarah to never say that stupid doll’s name around her again. Okay but what is her response to Alexa’s cryptic warning about “expect the unexpected?” Does Shayna look like she cares at all what that lunatic has to say? Alexa has fun playing with dolls, Shayna has fun hurting people. Alexa started this, Shayna will end it! Nia agrees, but there’s nothing wrong with a little luck. Nia has Reggie wish Shayna luck but Shayna slaps him before he can kiss her hand. Nia says it’s fine, and the three head out.

The bell rings and Alexa has a sinister smirk as she and Shayna circle. Shayna hesitates seeing Alexa not even put up her dukes. They circle, Reggie distracts, and Shayna CLOBBERS Alexa!

Shayna gets the arm, wrenches it and twists it, but Alexa overpowers her? Shayna still bends the fingers but Alexa shouts, “LOOK AT ME!” Their eyes lock, and is Alexa hypnotizing Shayna?!

Winner: Alexa Bliss, by pinfall

Nia is shaking off the hypnosis and has no idea what just happened! Though, does anyone really know what happened here? Is Alexa going to make the entire Raw Women’s Division dance to her tune?

Raw Women’s Championship: Rhea Ripley VS Charlotte Flair!

Anyone else getting deja vu? The Nightmare was NXT Women’s Champion, the Queen was incredibly confident she’d change that, and it did go the challenger’s way at WrestleMania 36. But a year has made both women stronger, tougher and meaner. There may have been distractions and detours, but these two finally meet 1v1 again.

Charlotte puts the leg on the ropes but Rhea avoids the knee drop! Charlotte hobbles into forearms! Rhea gets around Charlotte, reels her in and hits a short-arm clothesline! And another! Ripcord but Charlotte breaks free, only for Rhea to bob ‘n’ weave and HEADBUTT! Charlotte wobbles into a SUPERKICK!

Rhea has to get her bad leg moving as Charlotte goes to the apron. Rhea hobbles over, gets Charlotte up but Charlotte ROCKS her! Charlotte shoulders in but Rhea dodges, only for Charlotte to catch the kick! DRAPING KNEEBAR! The ref counts the ropebreak but Charlotte lets go at 4.5! Rhea hobbles again, but still comes back to WRECK Charlotte with a dropkick! Rhea goes out to fetch Charlotte into the ring, and then growls as she goes up the corner! Rhea climbs, leaps, and missile dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Rhea growls again as she hammers and clubs Charlotte. Rhea gets the legs, PRISM TRAP!!

Charlotte is caught, but she rolls to throw Rhea into buckles! Rhea is dazed, Charlotte pushes her out to hit NATURAL SELECTION! Cover, with legs on the ropes! TWO!?! Rhea kicks out and the ref noticed too late, Charlotte is surprised either way! Charlotte goes after Rhea again, scoops but Rhea slips out to waistlock!

The ring count is 8 of 10, both women get in at 9! Charlotte SPEARS Rhea down! And gets the leg, for a FIGURE FOUR! Rhea shouts at Charlotte, slaps and clubs the leg lock, but Charlotte pushes and bridges. Rhea rolls first to get the ROPEBREAK! Charlotte is frustrated and swings on Rhea, but Rhea drags Charlotte with her to the floor! Rhea is free but shouting in pain.

The ring count has started again as both women get up. Rhea goes to the announce desk, Charlotte runs at her, but Rhea YANKS the desk hood off and it hits Charlotte! The ref calls the match?!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by disqualification (Rhea Ripley retains the title)

Rhea doesn’t even understand that’s what happened, she fires off furious fists and forearms! Rhea puts Charlotte on the apron to hammer away! The ref tells her to stop, the match is done! Charlotte is pissed, too, Rhea gets in and Charlotte tackles her! They just want to fight!! Charlotte claims that DQ was on purpose, but Rhea throws her into buckles! Rhea hobbles up, gets Charlotte in the pump handle, for a RIPTIDE!! Charlotte recovers as Rhea leaves, and while Charlotte says, “You’re learning!” Rhea says, “Just doing what you would do to me!” The Raw Women’s Championship remains with the Nightmare, but will the controversy only keep the door open to the Queen?

 

WWE World Championship Hell in a Cell Match: Bobby Lashley VS Drew McIntyre!

The Rocky Mountain Machine wants to be done with the Scottish Warrior, and the feeling is mutual. To make it worth both men’s time, they each added a stipulation. McIntyre put this match inside the devil’s playground, but Lashley says that when McIntyre loses, McIntyre can no longer challenge for the world title while it belongs to Lashley! Is that motivation enough for McIntyre to reach the top a third time? Or is there no stopping the All Mighty?

The Cell touches down again, the introductions are made and the title is raised as we see how it all ends for these two titans!

MVP promises this ends tonight for McIntyre as McIntyre and Lashley stare down. They get face to face but then Lashley bails out to go looking under the ring!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by pinfall (still WWE World Champion)

THIS is how the All Mighty defeats the Scottish Warrior?! If not for MVP, Lashley wouldn’t have lasted this long! But sadly, a win is a win, and a loss is a loss. McIntyre is BLOCKED from challenging for the world title so long as the Lashley has it! And with an insurance policy like MVP, will Lashley ever lose it?


My Thoughts:

Well, another Hell in a Cell, another mixed bag of results. Firstly, for the kickoff show, I did like that Sonya stuck around a bit more, certainly to talk the three women’s matches, but I feel like she still could’ve given general predictions for the men’s matches. It’s not like the men on the panel only talked about the men’s matches and stayed quiet during the women’s matches. If we’re talking equality, let Sonya at least give her ideas on one of the grudge matches we had. The kickoff match being a singles match was actually the best move given how depleted Vince has made the RawDown Women’s Tag Division. The champs, Sexy Muscle Friends and ShayNia are the only teams right now after all the releases, they gotta stretch things out.

Opening with the SmackDown Women’s Championship HIAC made 111% sense to sandwich the show with HIAC matches, and this one was a great one. There was a lot of creativity just on how Bayley and Bianca used Bianca’s braid, and they managed to use the Cell just enough to justify it being there. Honestly, if this were Extreme Rules and not HIAC, I could’ve seen them do a lot of the same spots, like the hair tied to ropes or chairs. But whatever, WWE will do what it wants. Bianca retaining also makes 111% sense, she is building up to be stronger and stronger. Money in the Bank is next, it’ll be the first one with live fans, I’m thinking Bianca will retain there, too.

I almost thought they were going to schedule all the SmackDown matches in a row and then do all the Raw matches in a row, but I suppose a slight shuffle was good enough. Cesaro VS Rollins was on par with their WrestleMania 37 match, maybe a touch better given the story of them knowing each other’s moves better now. Rollins winning and in an inconclusive cradle counter was the right call. These two could easily make it a best of 5, or at least use MITB as part of the story. Perhaps even the rumored return of King of the Ring? They meet in the SmackDown bracket finals, and whoever wins probably defeats even the Raw finalist.

Alexa VS Shayna, and by proxy taking on Reggie and Nia, was certainly more an interesting segment than a good match. There were elements to the in-ring action that made Twisted Alexa feel almost literally like The Fiend, which is still a good thing, but I’m surprised they went away from Reggie as the puppet to Nia. It does make more sense, though, as Alexa would want the strongest one under her power. I wonder if Shayna and Reggie will have to put aside their differences to keep Nia from becoming Lily’s human host body. It seems just the right balance of hokey and actual quality story telling that is WWE’s wheelhouse.

Sami VS Kevin was an awesome match, even without it being in the Cell. We all know Kevin was selling bad throat, but I hope he was also selling bad arm. It didn’t seem to come up that naturally, even with Sami’s tope conjilo landing on him hard. An injury now would really derail this awesome story. Assuming Kevin is good to go, we’re going to get plenty of gloating from Sami and then Kevin will go after him, claiming it is karma back on him. They, too, could even look to use MITB or KOTR to settle this if WWE really wanted fans to show up/tune in for summer SmackDowns.

What was really awkward for this year’s HIAC was for the last two matches, both belonging to Raw we should note, having dirtied up finishes. Everything about the main event was awesome up until the “controversy.” Granted, HIAC matches have no disqualifications, but Lashley doesn’t come out looking that strong when MVP had to help him multiple times. Though to counter back again, this is no worse than Roman Reigns as Universal Champion, really. Could be why Roman’s stopped needing Jey to help, Roman needs to look stronger than other top champions so he stops cheating to win while they start cheating to win. Guess I have to commend Vince on some shrewd tactics there.

I do think Rhea VS Charlotte, being an awesome match, actually benefits in their story for having the Champion’s Advantage finish. Rhea hasn’t had much going for her, so that her beating Charlotte clean almost seems the less interesting move. The brutality continuing after the bell and that little bit of verbal exchange as Rhea left both add some depth back into the story and to Rhea’s character. I don’t think there’ll be a double turn, Charlotte is having too much fun being Cruella da Heel. But if Rhea is becoming a savvier Face, maybe even a Tweener, it could really lend to Rhea taking on anyone and everyone (that Raw has left) over the summer.

My Score: 8.7/10

Dan Lambert suddenly grows a pair and smacks Wardlow on the back. Wardlow scowls at Lambert but Lambert shrinks behind his wall of MMA fighters. Wardlow dares one of them to bring it, but then Scorpio RAMS Wardlow into the steel steps! Wardlow tumbles over, then American Top Team swarms him!

The trained fighters all stomp Wardlow like goons but Scorpio has them clear out. Scorpio says he’s got this, and he stalks Wardlow back into the ring as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Wardlow gets up in a corner but Scorpio KICKS him in the leg. Wardlow shoves Scorpio away and goes to another corner but Scorpio rams into him. Wardlow clubs Scorpio but Scorpio knees low, snapmares Wardlow down and clamps on a chinlock. Wardlow endures the grind and fans rally up. Scorpio leans all his weight but Wardlow fights up and RAMS Scorpio into a corner! And again! And again! Wardlow backs off to run in, but Scorpio sends him into buckles! Scorpio fires off haymakers until Wardlow sits down, then Scorpio flexes. Ethan Page is fired up for his tag partner, but Wardlow gets up to CLOBBER Scorpio!

Wardlow shakes out the arms as he gets back up and he CLOBBERS Scorpio again. Wardlow is getting mad now, and he CLUBS Scorpio on the back. Wardlow puts Scorpio in a corner, RAMS into him, and then uppercuts! Scorpio sits down and Ethan talks trash but Wardlow gives it back. Wardlow stands Scorpio up to RAM into him again. Scorpio claws Wardlow’s eyes! Scorpio kicks Wardlow’s leg and has him in a corner for more haymakers. Scorpio whips corner to corner but Wardlow reverses. Wardlow runs in but Scorpio dodges, Wardlow hits POST! Dynamite returns to single picture as Scorpio climbs up to rain down fists on Wardlow!

American Top Team coach Scorpio on and he bumps Wardlow off buckles. Fans cuss out Lambert as Scorpio drags Wardlow to the top. Wardlow resists the superplex and shoves Scorpio down! Wardlow adjusts, and SWANTON BOMBS! Fans are thunderous for Wardlow as he looms over Scorpio. Wardlow says it’s time, and he drags Scorpio up and reels him in! Lambert sends his men in, but Wardlow CLOBBERS and BOOTS and DECKS and CLOBBERS and CLOBBERS and TOSSES them all out! Wardlow hauls one up to trophy lift and TOSS onto the pile! Fans fire up but Scorpio has the belt! Wardlow turns around into a BELT SHOT!! Cover, TWO!!

No one can believe Wardlow survives the screw job! Lambert tells Scorpio to keep after him, and Scorpio pretends the straps are down. Scorpio reels Wardlow into a fireman’s carry, but Wardlow slips off and shoves Scorpio into Lambert! Down goes the fat head and now Wardlow hits a SPINEBUSTER on Scorpio! The straps actually come down, and fans are thunderous again! Wardlow drags Scorpio up, reels him in, points to the belt, and hits a POWERBOMB! Wardlow grins and fans are thunderous for just the first verse! The second one is going to be the same, a POWERBOMB! And then a third POWERBOMB!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

The Men of the Year and American Top Team could not withstand the War Dog, the War Machine, the War Hammer, THIS IS WARD~LOW!! The confetti flies and Wardlow holds the belt up high, will the new champion blaze a path of destruction through the roster?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“A lot of people have tried to make a name off of me. A lot of people have lost a lot of money betting against me. And tonight, those people are licking their lips. They’re watching me and waiting for me to be caught off guard, and hope that one day, somebody’s gonna come along and surprise me and put a beating on me that I never recover from. They think tonight, Brody King is gonna surprise me, they think he’s gonna catch me off guard, they think I don’t know exactly what kind of monster I’m dealing with in Brody King. But maybe y’all forgot exactly what kind of monster you’re dealing with in me.

“Ten days ago, I took a man I deeply respect and admire in Hiroshi Tanahashi, and I beat his face in. A few days after that, I was carving dudes’ faces up like hamburger in a steel cage! For fun! Blood & Guts is like golfing on a Sunday for me. And then a few days after that, I signed on the dotted line to defend the AEW World Championship against Brody King. Yeah, I know exactly who Brody King is. Y’all think I didn’t do my homework? I’ve seen him in NJPW, I’ve seen him in ROH, I know his friends, I know his enemies. Only one question left: How big is his heart? Does he have a monster sized heart beating in that chest?

“We’re gonna find out because he’s gonna be swimming in the deep waters with the biggest shark in this game, the AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley. When you step into the ring with anybody from the Blackpool Combat Club, we find your limits and we push them. We find out just how bad you want it! Being made for the BCC, being world champion, it ain’t for everybody. But it’s what I do every day. Step up or get stepped on.” The Maniac gives his ultimatum, how will the House of Black’s hulking beast respond?

 

Mark Sterling and Tony Nese speak.

Smart Mark asks if the camera is rolling. It is, and it seems Sterling wants us to see them get a very big signature on their petition. Keith Lee is walking up, and Sterling says this is “The People Against Swerve Strickland” to remove Swerve from the roster. Swerve is untrustworthy, he stabs people in the back, just like Keith! Sterling thinks Keith should sign it. Keith says greetings to Mr. Sterling and Mr. Nese. And yes, he has trust issues with Swerve, but they are still a tag team, and they are still winning. Unlike Nese and Sterling. Keith heads out and Nese tries to figure out what Keith meant by that. But will Swerve only prove Sterling right tonight?

 

Christian Cage & Luchasaurus are here.

Captain Charisma and his brainwashed behemoth are in Rochester, New York, and fans boo because of how they’ve both betrayed Jungle Boy. Christian has a mic to say, “Here we are, on the heels of Blood & Guts, and I am the Cage that everybody is talking about. Now, you ignorant pieces of crap think that you deserve to know the reason why I turned my back, and said and did the things that I did to Jungle Boy and his family, are now demanding answers, wanting to know why Luchasaurus decided to remain aligned with me.” Fans boo but that is technically true, we do want to know why.

But wait! MATT HARDY is here! And he has a mic to tell Christian, “You are unreal. You’re like the Michael Jordan of being an asshole. Every time I don’t think you can top yourself again, you somehow do.” Hardy will be honest, JB was his friend. Hardy got to know JB well these last few months. JB trusted and respected Christian, and Christian screwed him over! No one, let alone JB, deserved what Christian did. Hardy gets up at the ring but Christian wants to get this straight. “You’re going to sit here and pretend you’re suddenly buddy-buddy with Jungle Boy, like you know him the way that I know him? Or the way that Luchasaurus knows him?

“Here’s the thing, Matt. You’re starting to make your brother sound like the sober one.” No one can believe Christian went there! The fans double down on calling Christian an A-Hole. Hardy sees what’s going on here with Luchasaurus now. Hardy and Christian have been at this a long time, and in the last few years, Christian is just using Luchasaurus to make as much money as he can. But Hardy can’t be a hypocrite, he did the same. He took advantage of Private Party, Butcher & Blade, and he used them. But he hates himself for that and regrets that time so badly. And in a twist of fate, his last month has been upside-down, it’s been a mess.

Hardy says maybe he deserves that, it’s karma coming to get him. But right now, Hardy won’t let another be taken advantage of. Not Luchasaurus or anyone else. Christian says no, Hardy is here because of his ego! We all know Matt Hardy is a clout chaser, which is why he can’t stand when his name isn’t in the headlines for more than two seconds. Right? He’ll use everyone around him! His kids, his wife, his father-in-law, his dog Sparky, his Aunt Jenny, a dilapidated boat, a lawnmower, and hell, he’ll even turn a blind eye to his own brother’s issues just to ride his coattails for one last run!

Hardy says Christian is delusional, but Christian says Hardy is here under the guise of caring for Jungle Boy, when the fact is, Hardy realized that Christian is the most influential star in AEW and Hardy needs to be near him. That is embarrassing, Matt, it really is. But what’s even worse, Matt’s screw-up brother isn’t the most embarrassing part of his family, MATT is! Hardy wans to throw down but Luchasaurus steps in his way. And Christian cheap shots Hardy! Hardy chokes Christian but Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Hardy out of the ring! Luchasaurus goes out and RAMS Hardy into the steel steps!

Christian tells Luchasaurus to finish Hardy, but Hardy fires forearms back! Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS Hardy, digs his head into the post, and then BOOTS him against the steel! But this isn’t enough, Christian has Luchasaurus clear the timekeeper’s table! Luchasaurus then choke grips to CHOKE SLAM Hardy through the table!! Christian then sits by Hardy to say, “There you are. Your name is in the headlines. Enjoy your relevance.” Christian leaves with Luchasaurus, will they continue to stoop to new lows in order to rise up the ranks?

 

AEW has the aftermath of Blood & Guts.

A bloody Matt Menard says that the only reason the others agreed to such as match is because of Chris Jericho. And if the Jericho Appreciation Society got anything out of that night, it’s that they stole the privilege of seeing Eddie Kingston make Jericho tap! Menard was the one who gave up when Claudio Castagnoli had the Sharpshooter on, sparing Jericho from Eddie’s stretch plum. William Regal says that after 39 years in this business, he has never ever witnessed such horror as Blood & Guts. Ortiz says he wants more! More blood, more guts, just MORE! Regal says that is what the Blackpool Combat Club is all about.

Claudio says you can call him The Mailman now, because he always delivers! Menard says if you want big money, you gotta do that “big boy sh*t.” Angelo Parker, as bloody as he ended up, vows that the JAS will not stop until Eddie Kingston is in a grave!! Will there be no end to the war of JAS VS BCC? Speaking of…

Tony Schiavone interviews Claudio and Jake Hager backstage.

Not just that, but it’s the parking lot. Schiavone says this may not be the best place for this, but he is here with two giant men who know each other well. They’ve both signed a waive, No Physicality. Hager says that’s right, no physicality here tonight. The 16 THOUSAND people at Forbidden Door cheered Claudio on, and that may have him thinking he’s tough, but deep down inside, he knows he’s not as tough or as hard as Jake Hager. Claudio knows he’s not a world champion like Hager. Claudio was never world champion in ROH or in WWE, and he won’t be one here in AEW. Hager is an UNDEFEATED MMA pro-fighter, and it is about time he got some respect.

Claudio tells Hager that everyone who says, “I want my respect,” doesn’t deserve respect! Claudio beat Zack Sabre Jr, one of the best technical wrestlers, in his first match here. And then Claudio went on to lead his team to victory against Hager’s team- Oh, sorry, Hager just carries the bags for Jericho, right? But while Hager got his arm wrapped, Claudio got his raised, and it’ll happen again next week when they go 1v1. Hager may be undefeated in MMA, but Claudio is undefeated in AEW, where rankings matter. And next week, Claudio is going to go 3-0! Will the Swiss Cyborg dismantle Rock Hard Hager when they meet man to man once again?

 

Swerve in Our Glory VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny!

Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland are still trying to smooth things out, but they at least have common enemies to focus on tonight. Will their Limitless House still stand? Or will the mercenaries help stick that knife in Keith’s back for Swerve?

The teams sort out and Blade steps against Keith. Fans rally up for Keith but Blade talks trash as he conducts the singing. “OH~ BASK IN HIS GLORY~!” Blade SLAPS Keith, but Keith HEADBUTTS Blade! Butcher tags in and fans fire up to see him tie up with Keith. They are in a deadlock, break, and go again. Keith powers Butcher to a corner, Butcher goes up the corner, but Keith TOSSES him away! Keith stalks Butcher but Butcher bails out to get a chair! Blade wants Butcher to calm down but Swerve is backing Keith up. Butcher cools off and puts the chair down to get in the ring. Butcher tags Blade and Keith tags Swerve.

Fans rally as Swerve and Blade go around. Blade wants a leg but Swerve counters with a chinbar. “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve headlocks but Blade pries free. Blade headlocks, Swerve powers out and things speed up. Swerve hurdles but not high enough and he basically hip drops onto Blade’s head!

Blade drags Swerve up to turn him for a NECKBREAKER to the floor! Swerve crawls away but Butcher and Blade drag him up. Blade puts Swerve in the ring, drags him over and tags in Butcher. The mercs mug Swerve, Butcher HEADBUTTS him, and then CHOPS Swerve in the corner. Butcher digs his forearms into Swerve at the corner, lets off as the ref counts, and Butcher whips Swerve hard into the corner! Swerve falls and Blade tags in to drag Swerve into ropes. Blade CHOKES Swerve, lets off as the ref counts, but Bunny CHOKES Swerve now! The ref misses that but Keith protests. Bunny frolics while Blade drags Swerve up.

Butcher tags in and the mercs hit a LEG DROP SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Butcher sits Swerve up to KNEE him in the back again and again! Butcher CLUBS Swerve, Swerve kicks and CHOPS back. Butcher CHOPS Swerve, Swerve kicks back but Butcher throws haymakers and CHOPS! Tag to Blade and they mug Swerve in the corner. Blade digs his boots in but the ref counts. Bunny mocks Swerve and Butcher CLUBS Swerve against the apron. Butcher shoves Swerve in for Blade to drag him.

Blade & Butcher focus on Keith but Keith fires off hands on them! That’s still 2v1, but Keith powers up! DOUBLE LARIATS collide, but then Blade KNEES Keith! Swerve gives Butcher a HOUSE CALL! Blade RAMS Swerve into a corner and puts him up top! But Keith SPLASHES Blade into Swerve’s knees! Keith keeps Swerve up and they fist bump. Pop-up and SWERVE BOMB!! Cover, Swerve & Keith win!!

Winners: Swerve in Our Glory, by pinfall

Somehow, someway, Keith & Swerve pull it out! But Team Taz barges out to say this is really starting to piss them off! Will Hobbs says the fans can feel it. “You think we’re going to allow you two to still come out here and disrespect us? What you have in front of you is two grown ass men, trick ass bitch!” Ricky Starks has Hobbs hold the FTW Championship so he can have the mic. They’ve been playing real nice right now, because they could’ve ended Keith’s & Swerve’s careers online and on the mic. If you don’t believe them, ask their former teammate!

But if Swerve & Keith wanna act like they’re somebody, when every time they’ve stood in the ring against Team Taz, every time they try to get on the mic against them, Team Taz has proven there are levels to this, and Swerve & Keith are NOT on their level! They are levels below them! Starks says that just because of where they came from, Swerve & Keith think they can get a shot at them! Well if you want to talk about it, Starks will beat their asses right now! But if we’re talking about who the best tag team is, then- “SUPERKICK! PARTAAAY~!” The AEW World Tag Team Champions, the YOUNG BUCKS, are here!

Matt Jackson has the music cut, and he says Starks may as well have just been in the back to cue up their music for them. That was pretty sweet. And gentlemen, sorry to interrupt- Or, no, the Bucks don’t have to apologize for anything, they started this damn company! But hey, great match from Keith & Swerve, they have been killing it. All the teams in the back have been killing it, this whole AEW Tag Division is on fire! “Everyone is eating well. But let us not forget who set the damn table in the first place.” Nick takes the mic to say no disrespect here, because these two teams are very good.

In fact, at Double or Nothing, Team Taz and Swerve in Our Glory “had one hell of a match. It was four and a half stars, that’s unbelievable. But that’s an off-night for the Young Bucks!” And they couldn’t even get the job done, Jurassic Express won. But then look who beat Jurassic Express a few weeks later. “Read it and mother effin’ weep it! WE did!” Now there is a proposal here. How about it’s Triple or Nothing? Next week, a TRIPLE THREAT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH…! Team Taz, Swerve in Our Glory, and though the fans chant for FTR, Nick says, “We’re better than them, and you guys know that, come on.”

But the point is, it will be Team Taz VS Swerve in Our Glory VS “The best damn tag team of all time…! THE YOUNG BUCKS!” Another big opportunity for the #AbsolutePowerhouses in Hobbs & Starks, as well as the Limitless House of Keith & Swerve! Will this Triple Threat finally be a chance for one of those teams to shine with gold? Or are Matt & Nick just taking out two birds with one stone?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “I envy you, Jon. I envy you for the decisions that you made, and the violence that you inflicted on yourself. We didn’t get the luxury of your decisions. No, our violence is by design. But what I truly envy is the experience that you’re about to have. You think you know pain? You think you know anger? You think you know violence? No, you don’t. But I’ll make sure that Brody King will eave his mark on you. Because the House will make sure that anything that you experience tonight goes far beyond the physical realm of pain. I envy you, Jon.” Just how much brutality will Brody King unleash upon Jon Moxley?

 

Eddie Kingston is here!

The Mad King goes to the ring where Tony Schiavone is waiting. Schiavone reminds us that a week ago, it was Blood & Guts, and we all saw what happened. But there is still a name on Eddie’s hit list and that is Chris Jericho. Eddie says that before we get to that, please, hold the mic up like a professional, thank you. Eddie says before getting to Jericho, he congratulates Wardlow on tonight’s win. And two, congratulations to everyone that was on the winning team of Blood & Guts, even Claudio. See? Eddie’s a nice guy, he’s maturing. Pbbt. But anyway, here’s the real deal why he’s out here.

“Chris Jericho. You made me a liar. I didn’t taste your blood, you didn’t bleed. SO, I’m gonna get you again, and I’m gonna make you bleed, and I’m gonna taste your blood!” But Chris Jericho, as well as Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti, shout at Eddie via the titantron. They want him to pay attention. Eddie wants to taste Jericho’s blood? Eddie wants to get crazy? You’ll see how crazy Jericho can get. The camera pans over and Tay has been beating up Ruby Soho! There’s an open car door, and Tay has Soho stagger into the gap, to SLAM the door on Soho’s arm!! Soho drops to the floor, clutching her arm!

“Watch yourself Kingston, or this will happen to you!” The JAS rushes off before security rushes in. They call for a medic, has the JAS just broken Soho’s arm just to get at Eddie?

 

The Dark Order is here!

Fans cheer as Negative One leads the way for Evil Uno, Preston Vance, Alex Reynolds, John Silver & Anna Jay to the ring here in Rochester. Fans cheer for “BRODIE! BRODIE!” to honor Negative One’s father, and Silver has the mic to say, “The Dark Order is in Rochester! And Rochester is Dark Order Country!” Uno takes the mic to say that is why it is very important they’re here today. They have very important news for everyone, and everyone here should here it because they have followed the Dark Order since the beginning, and they made the Dark Order what it is today. Uno wants to personally thank all the fans for showing up and supporting them.

And that is why it is so important that Uno gets to say this. “The six of us… Are here to stay!” Fans cheer as Uno says Dark Order is forever! A new chapter begins, and that begins with a proclamation, and he knows just who should say it. Negative One is given the mic! Fans cheer but then QT Marshall comes out to ruin everything. He doesn’t know how long AEW has to put up with the “charity case” for. Until he’s 18 or something? Fans boo but QT says he gets it. Negative One’s dad was from right here in Rochester. “But you ain’t your father! Your father’s a legend in AEW! He beat me within five minutes in his first match ever here.”

Uno has to hold Negative One back as QT continues to say that Negative One takes after his MOM! QT says that he didn’t bring his friends out here. So Negative One can get his friends out of here to face QT man to man! Or else QT will go to his private locker room and grab each and every one of his action figures to rip their heads off! But wait, here comes HANGMAN PAGE! The Cowboy is still a friend of the Dark Order, and that means he is a friend of Negative One! QT freaks out, but then turns around for Uno to ROCK him with a forearm! Hangman ROCKS QT back, and then they both toss QT into the ring!

Fans fire up as Vance whips QT into a corner for Silver to GAMANGIRI! Silver feeds QT to Reynolds’ ROLLING ELBOW! ENZIGURI! STUNNER! GERMAN SUPLEX! QT flounders from the Beaver Boy Blitz, but then he’s fed to the DISCUS from Vance! Brodie would be proud of that one! Uno has Brodie Jr. tell ’em! “QT, QT, QT. I would pin you right now, but y’know what? I’m gonna wait until I’m 19.” Negative One makes a promise about a decade in the making, will he follow in his father’s footsteps and whoop QT’s ass in his AEW debut?

 

Good ol’ JR joins commentary!

Jim Ross lends his analysis to the second hour, and it’s going to be a slobber knocker!

Penta still endures as Rush grinds him down.

Rush drags Penta up to put him on the top rope backwards, then he climbs up behind him. Rush is after the mask again! Penta resists, so Rush drops him into the Tree of Woe!

Insult to injury before the cradle, RUSH WINS!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

The White Bull pulled off some major bull, that’s for sure! But will both Lucha Brothers get their revenge on Rush & Andrade soon enough?

 

Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.

They’re all very happy, and Sonjay says they’re celebrating already because “Samoa Joe decided to crawl out of that hole that he’s been hiding in.” It is official for July 23rd, Death Before Dishonor, and the ultimate celebration begins when Sonjay’s best friend in this entire world, Jay Lethal, pins Samoa Joe to become the NEW ROH World TV Champion! And Lethal says he will tell us God’s honest truth, “I know that this is not going to be an easy fight.” Samoa Joe is one tough champion. But that’s why Lethal isn’t taking him lightly. But they are taking his championship. They all share a laugh, and Singh adds that Lethal will be the new champion! Will Lethal be able to back up all those words? Or will the Samoan Submission Specialist make Lethal suffer?

 

Tony Nese & Mark Sterling are still looking for signatures.

They go to the Best Friends, Chuck Taylor, Trent Beretta & Orange Cassidy, saying they’re the last signatures the petition needs to remove Swerve Strickland from AEW. After all, Swerve backstabbed Cassidy during the Royal Rampage. Cassidy says he never reads anything without his lawyer present. He has a lawyer? Yes, it’s DANHAUSEN! He has the paperwork right here. Nese says forget asking, he is going to make Cassidy sign. Chuck & Trent step up to push Nese back but Sterling has everyone just hold on a second. There is money to be made here. Nese VS Cassidy for Rampage! Wait, Danhausen has a better idea! Cassidy VS Nese on Rampage! That’s the same idea!

But anyway, if Nese wins, Cassidy has to sign the petition. Danhausen says objection sustained, and Cassidy says he will allow it. Overruled. What? No, Sterling’s the real lawyer, HE allows things! Hearsay! Sterling grumbles and storms off with Nese, but the deal is struck. Will Cassidy win and strike down this frivolous lawsuit?

 

8 Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Gunn Club VS Fuego Del Sol & Ruffin’ It!

It’s rather surprising that Max Caster, Anthony Bowens and the Ass B- er, Austin & Colten Gunn, are agreeing to team up again after the heated argument that happened last time. But will they be able to let cooler heads prevail and get another win for the team? And of course, Caster has a rap! “Acclaimed & The Gunns-” GASP! Austin snatches the mic from Caster?! Caster is upset but Bowens keeps him from going after Austin. No disses this week, will the Acclaimed Gunn Club hold it together?

The bell rings and Fuego starts against Austin. Austin turns around into a kick and facelock! TORNADO- NO, Austin FLAPJACKS Fuego away. Tag to Colten and he CLOBBERS Fuego! Colten is fired up but fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” as he stomps Fuego in the corner. Bowens tags in and he drags Fuego out to CLUB away on him. “EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED!” Bowens then DECKS Bear Boulder, ELBOWS Ruff and DECKS Bear Bronson! Fuego kicks Bowens and TORNADO DDTS!! Fans fire up as Fuego crawls, and Bronson is back! Hot tags to Austin and Bronson! Bronson rallies on the Gunn Club, and even Caster!

Bronson breaks through the line to DOUBLE LARIAT the Gunn Club! Fans fire up with Bronson and he clotheslines Colten out! Austin staggers into choke grip, SIT OUT SPINEBSUTER! Cover, Caster breaks it! Ruff goes after Caster but Caster TOSSES him! Austin crawls, tag to Bowens! Bowens ELBOWS Bronson, CHOPS him and SUPERKICKS him! Bronson wobbles but Bowens hits a LEAP FROG FAMOUSER! They’re doing Daddy Ass proud as Bowens tags Caster. Caster goes up, but then Austin tags in!? MIC DROP, and then Austin snipes the cover! Acclaimed Gunn Club still wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Gunn Club, by pinfall

Billy is upset that his boys aren’t getting along with his sons again, and Bowens shoves Austin! Austin and Colten CLOBBER The Acclaimed! Billy gets in, and he throws Austin away! And the same to Colten! Billy keeps telling them to cut it out, but then he CLOBBERS Caster! The Ass Man sides with his Ass Boys and Bowens doesn’t understand. What happened to scissor fingers? Billy kicks him low for a FAMOUSER! The Gunn Family sticks together, but will they finally get up to the top where they want to be?

 

Miro speaks.

“Malakai Black… We are different kind of men. You collect the weak, I dispose of them. You stab their backs, while I break them. Don’t you understand? You, a man who preys on the flawed, have enraged a man who is flawless! I, who rattles the gates of Heaven, will destroy the gates of Hell! So go ahead and buy yourself a bag of coins, because when I’m done with you, the House of Black will have many eyes to cover. Because the Redeemer is coming, enraged!!” Will Miro’s wrath wreak havoc on Malakai and his entire house?

 

Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!

La Mera Mera and the Lightning From Down Under are forces of nature to be sure, but the Native Beast & The Problem have brought their umbrellas. Will these Vicious Vixens be safe from the #ThunderStorm? Or will they still be blown away by the AEW Women’s World Champion and the #1 contender?

The teams sort out and Shafir storms up on Storm to BOOT her down! Nyla gets after Rosa and throws her out while Shafir fires off knee son Storm! The ref reprimands but Shafir whips Storm to ropes. Storm tilt-o-whirls to RANA Shafir! Storm drop toeholds, then runs to basement dropkick! Storm whips Shafir into the corner, where Rosa adds a BOOT! Rosa tags in, fires off body shots on Shafir, then tags Storm back in. Storm stomps Shafir, EuroUppers, then tags Rosa. Rosa runs to DECK Nyla, then she comes back to elbow Shafir! Rosa whips Storm in to uppercut Shafir, then Storm sets up as a step! LA MERA MERA IN MOTION!

Fans fire up and Rosa brings Shafir around to cover, TWO! Rosa keeps on Shafir with a facelock and Storm tags in. They double suplex Shafir, then Storm covers, TWO! Storm keeps on Shafir with a facelock and grinds her down. Fans rally, Shafir endures, and Shafir fights up but Storm bumps her off buckles. Tag to Rosa and Rosa snapmares Shafir for a KICK to the back! Cover, ONE! Shafir grits her teeth but Rosa clamps onto her with a chinlock. Shafir slips out, wrenches an arm to a double wristlock, but Rosa has a leg to trip Shafir to a cradle! ONE, Rosa powers Shafir to a lateral press, ONE!

Rosa keeps on Shafir with the facelock but Shafir fights up. Storm tags in, she stomps Shafir down, and Storm brings Shafir up to CHOP! Storm snapmares and HIP ATTACKS Shafir, then tags Rosa. Rosa CHOPS Shafir, then CHOPS her! Then GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Tag to Storm and she brings Shafir out. Shafir throws body shots and KICKS the leg! Shafir DECKS Storm, then DECKS Rosa! Storm ROCKS Shafir back with forearms then runs, but the ref is busy keeping Rosa out of the ring, so he misses Nyla SMACK Storm with the umbrella! Nyla shrugs and Shafir fireman’s carries for a WASTELAND SLAM!

Tag to Nyla and Nyla stomps Storm while Dynamite goes picture in picture. Nyla drags Storm up to snap suplex, then roll through to a GOURDBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Storm from Rosa, drags her around and Shafir tags in. They mug Storm, Shafir CLUBS Storm down, then has her on ropes. Shafir chicken wings the arms, drags Storm around, and she taunts Rosa. Storm fights but Shafir spins her for a SAYANAGI! Shafir taunts Rosa more while she paces between her and Storm. Shafir drags Storm up to tag in Nyla and they mug Storm more. Storm hits back, brawls with Nyla, but Nyla throws Storm down by her hair!

Nyla stomps Storm at the ropes and then drags her away. Tag to Shafir, they continue to mug Storm, and then Nyla gives Shafir a boost for the SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Shafir snarls while fans rally up. Shafir grabs Storm’s hand to bend the fingers and drag her to the corner. Tag to Nyla and she gets Storm’s legs to drop an elbow on the knee. Nyla runs to SPLASH down! Cover, TWO! Rosa rallies the fans but Nyla drags Storm up. Nyla scoops and SLAMS Storm, then drags her up again for another scoop. Storm slips off and RAMS Nyla into a corner! Dynamite returns to single picture as Storm O’Conner Rolls Nyla back!

Nyla rolls through but Storm is on her with a SLEEPER! Storm becomes a backpack but Nyla THROWS her off! Storm crawls, fans rally, hot tag to Rosa! Fans fire up as Rosa goes up top and leaps, CROSSBODY! She bounces off Nyla to then HIP ATTACK Shafir! Rosa CHOPS and forearms over and over and fans fire up! Rosa roars and ROCKS Nyla again! Rosa whips but Nyla blocks by holding ropes! Rosa keeps trying but Nyla swings on her. Rosa dodges, drop toeholds Nyla to ropes, and then stomps away! The ref counts, Rosa runs side to side to DROPKICK! Rosa says una mas, and she runs again, to DROPKICK!

Nyla flounders but fans fire up with Rosa. Still one more, but Nyla reels Rosa into an URENAGE! Tag to Shafir and she hurries after Rosa. Rosa kicks at Shafir but Shafir cartwheels through to get an arm. Shafir pump handles Rosa and hits a FALL AWAY SLAM! Cover, Storm breaks it! Nyla BOOTS Storm and reels her in but Storm SATELLITE DDTS! Storm ducks the roundhouse to GERMAN SUPLEX Shafir! Fans fire up as Storm fires up and hits the HIP ATTACK in the corner! Storm goes up for Rosa to drag Shafir out. Rosa scoops Shafir, Storm is ready on the corner, THUNDERSTORM DRIVER!! Cover, Thunder & Storm win!!

Winners: Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm, by pinfall

And with that, #ThunderStorm wins! Will we see these two continue on as a team? What about the chances of them clashing for the AEW Women’s World Championship once again?

 

Tony Schiavone is backstage with The Baddies.

Jade Cargill, the still undefeated TBS Champion, tells Tony to “cut the sh*t,” then she asks Stokely Hathaway, “What the hell was that last week?” He says hold on, listen! If a wrestling company can have an Interim World Champion, then they can have an Interim Baddie! Leila Grey walks in and offers a handshake to Jade. Jade refuses, but what about Kiera Hogan? Nope, still rejected. Stokely knows the world wants to know what exactly he said to Leila last week, and he’ll tell us! $1100, because that is what it cost to get Leila to step up.

Stokely knows his math, and he knows 3v2 is better than 2v2. “And it takes a special type of finesse to get someone to go from wanting to beat your ass, to saving your ass.” And you know what they say, “Trust the process.” Stokely goes to put his arm around Leila but she shrugs that off. Jade says if Leila fails to deliver, then that’s Stokely’s ass. Jade and Kiera head out, but Stokely asks if Leila trusts him while offering a fist bump. She doesn’t respond, but he says they’ll talk later. Will Leila prove she can be a true Baddie through and through?

 

Tony Schiavone now interviews Daniel Garcia.

Garcia requested this time to call out Wheeler Yuta. “Hey, Yuta, last week on Dark, I put my foot on your neck and I held your title above my head, and there wasn’t a damn thing you could do about it. Last week at Blood & Guts, I spent an hour with you in the ring. I felt all that you could give me, you had my blood on your hands. But I’ve determined that you don’t strike an ounce of fear into my heart whatsoever. You’re not scaring nobody with that fake tough guy act, let me tell you.” And at Death Before Dishonor, don’t be scared, Yuta. Give Garcia that shot for the ROH Pure Championship, and whether he’s a pro-wrestler or a sports entertainer, you damn sure will call him the best.

 

FTR speaks.

Cash Wheeler says, “So we call ourselves ‘7 Star FTR,’ the living legends. We are the current AAA, IWGP and ROH Tag Team Champions, and I can stand here before you and comfortably say that no match has ever taken more out of us than when we won these at ROH Supercard of Honor.” But uh, we’re just a few weeks away from Death Before Dishonor and the PPV return of ROH. And despite the fact that they beat the Briscoes for the ROH titles, despite the fact that they’re on the run of a lifetime, there are still some people who doubt they’re the best in the world, and that doesn’t sit right with them.

Dax Harwood says, “That’s the beauty of professional wrestling. You can think whatever you want, believe whatever you want, but you can also be wrong. If ROH wants to sell a PPV, they gotta put on the rematch of the decade. So I’m telling you right now, Briscoes VS FTR II, one last time to prove who is the absolute best tag team on this planet! Briscoes, if you want to be a king, you got to kill a king. And we ain’t dead yet.” #TopGuys out. FTR is calling out Jay & Mark Briscoe, will Death Before Dishonor 2022 be one for the ages?

 

Interim AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Brody King!

The Best in the World is away, but the Maniac vows to prove he is the rightful owner of that title. But will he be able to remind everyone that he’s also the scariest monster in wrestling today? Or will the House of Black soon shine in the shadows with gold on the mantle?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and even if this is for the interim title, this fight is going to be legit!

Fans are thunderous already as Moxley and Brody stare down. They slowly circle, tie up, and Brody puts Mox in a corner. The ref counts, Brody lets off to CHOP, and Moxley staggers away to the opposite corner. Fans fire up as Brody watches Moxley get back up. Moxley gets in Brody’s face, and right up in there! Brody and Moxley talk some smack and then Moxley fires forearms and CHOPS! Brody ROCKS Moxley, eggs him on, and Moxley throws a forearm back, only for Brody to ROCK Moxley again! Moxley rebounds but Brody throws him out. Brody then pursues, CLUBS Moxley to the timekeeper’s area, then CLUBS him again.

Brody whips Moxley into railing! Fans fire up, Brody stands Moxley up to CHOP him, and the ring count climbs. Brody ROCKS Moxley, follows him around the way, and then runs in, only to be sent into steel steps! Fans fire up and Moxley brings Brody up to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP into the railing! Moxley refreshes the ring count, headlocks Brody and brings him around the way, then throws knees. Moxley even fishhooks Brody and brings him around, only for Brody to back drop him onto the ramp! Moxley writhes and Brody shakes out the stars. Brody drags Moxley up to whip him into the timekeeper’s area! Moxley tumbles with the table while the ring count climbs!

Brody storms up to Moxley to CHOP him against railing! Brody then puts Moxley back in the ring at 6 of 10, only for Moxley to dropkick the legs out! Moxley throws knees, gets the leg and DRAGON SCREWS! Moxley steps through to have a FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! Fans “WOO~!” while Brody endures. Brody clubs Moxley’s legs, pries at the hold, but Moxley keeps the hold on. Brody keeps clubbing, but Moxley lets off. Moxley shoots in to get the leg but Brody CLUBS him. Moxley trips Brody to drop an elbow on the leg, and then another. Brody clamps on with a chinlock to keep Moxley down but Moxley fights free.

Moxley turns Brody over as fans rally, and Moxley hooks the leg. DEATH LOCK SNAPPER! Brody clutches his leg and gets to ropes but Moxley is after him. Moxley stands Brody up but the forearms start flying again. Fans rally as the forearms go back and forth, Moxley gets boxing elbows going, but runs into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Cover, TWO! Moxley survives and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Brody shakes out the bad leg while Moxley crawls to the apron. Brody storms over that way, BLASTS Moxley off the apron and Moxley crashes into the railing! Brody goes out after Moxley and drags him up to scoop and SLAM on the floor! Moxley writhes but Brody KICKS him in the back. Brody paces around, drags Moxley up, and CHOPS him again! Moxley gets into the ring but Brody pursues. Brody clamps onto Moxley with a neck wrench, and even digs his forearms in. Moxley endures, Brody shifts to a cobra twist and he CLUBS away on Moxley’s chest! Cover, TWO! Brody keeps cool and he kicks Moxley against ropes.

Brody scrapes Moxley, CHOKES him against the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Fans rally, Brody throws forearms but Moxley CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Brody just CHOPS Moxley right off his feet! Moxley flops over onto his face but Brody stands him back up to CHOP again. Moxley staggers around and falls into a corner, but Brody storms right up after him. Brody drags Moxley up, CHOPS him again, and Moxley is frozen in place! Brody CHOPS him again, and CHOPS him again! Moxley falls down and Brody eggs the fans on as Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans boo as Brody eggs Moxley on, then fireman’s carries.

Moxley fights with elbows, Brody starts to drop, but then Brody stands back up! The elbows keep coming, Brody powers up again, and he runs for a corner! Moxley slips off, Brody hits buckles, and Moxley gets to the opposite corner. Brody runs corner to corner, to CANNONBALL into buckles! Moxley avoids disaster and Brody crashes ‘n’ burns! Fans fire up and the standing count starts while both men are down. Moxley and Brody stir, and Moxley runs in to clothesline! Moxley hoists Brody up, CHOPS him, CHOPS again, then climbs up after him. Moxley CLUBS and CLAWS Brody’s back, but Brody throws body shots.

Moxley BITES Brody’s forehead! Then SUPERPLEX!! Fans fire up as Moxley puts on the SLEEPER! Brody fights up to fight off the Bully Choke and he snapmares free. Moxley shoots around to full nelson and DRAGON SLEEPER! Cover, TWO!! Brody is still in this but Moxley shouts out Bryan Danielson with DRAGON STOMPS! Moxley then drags Brody up, reels him in, but Brody fights the lift. Moxley ROCKS Brody, Brody ROCKS Moxley, but Moxley ROLLING ELBOWS! Brody stays up, Moxley runs to LARIAT! Brody still stays up! Brody swings, Moxley dodges, but then the LEFT LARIAT takes Moxley down!

Brody drags Moxley up into a PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Fans rally for Moxley but Brody clamps on with a SLEEPER! Is he going to put Moxley out like he did Darby Allin? Moxley RAMS Brody into buckles, but Brody holds on! Brody climbs the corner, HANGING SLEEPER!! The ref counts, Brody lets Moxley go and Moxley flops down! Brody goes corner to corner to CANNONBALL!! Cover, TWO!! Moxley barely gets out of that, but Brody scoops! Moxley slips out to CLUB Brody but Brody throws a back elbow! Brody runs, but Moxley follows to forearm Brody at the ropes! Moxley runs but Brody follows, only to miss in the corner! Roll-up, TWO!!

Moxley hurries to wrench and reel Brody in, PARADIGM SHIFT!! But Moxley has to push Brody over, so Moxley rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Brody withstands those so Moxley goes for the Bully Choke! Brody stands up, it’s a BACKPACK SLEEPER! Brody is fading, but he drops back, BACKPACK SENTON! But Moxley rises to SLEEPER HOLD! Brody moves around but ends up in the BULLY CHOKE!! Brody is fading, the ref calls it! Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still Interim AEW World Champion)

It was a fight to be sure, but Moxley holds onto the title! Who will step up to him next while we await CM Punk’s return? As for Brody King, fans cheer his valiant effort, and Malakai Black walks out. Malakai looks Brody in the eye, and pats him on the back. But then DARBY ALLIN AND STING appear?! The #RelentlessIcons show Brody King respect! Darby says Brody kicked his ass last week, and it doesn’t matter what anyone says! Brody EARNED his spot here. Darby offers a handshake, but Brody leaves Darby hanging. The House of Black doesn’t do anything for respect, but will they take on Darby & Sting for supremacy in AEW?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Dynamite, but they sure stretched that first hour. Only two of the six matches happened before Jim Ross joined commentary at the halfway point, and I would’ve liked if they’d tried to split things up a bit more evenly. But even with that, we got a great opener with the TNT Championship. It was obvious the Street Fight would bring out a bunch of American Top Team scrubs for Wardlow to throw around like nothing and then he wins the title. This is still great for Wardlow, but maybe it would’ve been more powerful if he’d won this title sooner, or if it was just Scorpio VS Wardlow 1v1 in a real epic match, not a Heel using all his resources to protect himself.

So apparently Mark Sterling, having been fired by Jade Cargill and not having MJF around, has resorted to filing frivolous lawsuits as his gimmick. It’s pretty funny, though, as he fails to convince Faces to side with him, a Heel. The promo with Best Friends and Danhausen was really funny with Danhausen just spouting legal terminology. Nese VS Cassidy will surely go Cassidy’s way so he can keep building momentum towards a title. Pac defends his All-Atlantic Championship at Rev-Pro’s event this weekend, but I’m pretty sure Pac retains, and then maybe we can get Pac VS Cassidy for this title at All Out.

That’s made even more likely by how Miro is going after Malakai Black. Miro had a very good promo as always, and he’s going to have an awesome match with Malakai. We got quite the promo segment with Christian, Luchasaurus and Matt Hardy. Hardy’s line about the “Michael Jordan of A-Holes” was really good, and of course Christian stoops to bringing up what happened with Jeff Hardy. A bit cheap, but of course Luchasaurus demolishes Matt Hardy. Sounds like this is setting up a tag match where Jungle Boy joins Matt Hardy to take on Christian & Luchasaurus, and we’ll see if JB can turn Luchasaurus back to the light side or if Luchasaurus stays Heel. Honestly, Luchasaurus could probably benefit most from his Heel turn.

We got a good Blood & Guts aftermath promo where a few different guys got to say their piece, and of course we’re getting more Eddie VS Jericho. Tay Conti hurting Ruby Soho could be a way to give us a Mixed Tag before the final blow-off. And adding Claudio VS Hager to things, that match is going to be great, and I would think Claudio wins to stay hot in AEW. We got a very good tag match out of Keith & Swerve VS Butcher & Blade, and I did like that they at least teased the “accidental attack misunderstanding.” Swerve totally understood the Pounce was an accident, and they finished off Butcher & Blade. Hobbs & Starks had a very fired up promo, and the Bucks had a good on to set up another Triple Threat for the titles. I would think the Bucks win that, just as Jurassic Express did.

FTR had a good promo to call out the Briscoes, and you can bet that match will be added to the Death Before Dishonor card. That will be a great match, and FTR will win so they can move on to face Young Bucks at All Out. Garcia had a good promo to call out Yuta, their ROH Pure Championship match will be great stuff, and that could probably go either way. I think Joe VS Lethal for the ROH World TV Championship could go either way, too, because Lethal has Singh and Sonjay on his side to overbook that match. Maybe after DBD, Tony Khan and other executives find a way to put on an ROH TV show, but no idea if I’ll be able to cover it if it happens.

We got a very fun segment out of The Dark Order and QT Marshall. Great to see Hangman join up with Dark Order again, and though not delivered with quite the stank it should have, Negative One at least got through his line about sparing QT more humiliation until he’s an adult. It would be amazing if 10 years from now, we do see Negative One/Brodie Lee Jr. face an old man QT and win in five minutes like his father. And moreover, it was good that Evil Uno assured us that the members of Dark Order we have left are going to stay in AEW one way or another. It’s a shame the faction ran out of steam like it did, but maybe they can rebuild.

We got a pretty good tag match out of #ThunderStorm VS Nyla & Marina, and of course the Faces win. Rosa and Storm can easily have another title match as part of the July themed episodes, like Fyter Fest or Fight for the Fallen. Stretching this to All Out in September would just seem odd to me, so maybe someone comes out of another story primed to face Rosa. Jade not accepting Leila Grey is a natural move for their story, but who knows where it goes from here. Leila could prove herself worthy, because I don’t see Stokely being fired by Jade so soon, and then we could have that Six Woman Tag I expected but Leila in for Red Velvet.

We got a pretty good 8 Man Tag, with the dysfunction finally adding something to the match. The Gunn Club turning on The Acclaimed was quite the surprise, though, but I had a feeling Billy was going to find a reason to be proud of his sons. And this could be the Face turn for The Acclaimed, and that is going to be great because fans love them. Penta VS Rush was awesome stuff, especially with how Alex and Jose got in on it. A Six Man Tag of La Faccion Ingobernable VS Death Triangle where Jose and Alex are the third men would be pretty fun.

And of course, we got an awesome main event out of Moxley and Brody. Moxley was of course retaining, but we all know Brody is badass, and it was cool for Darby to show him respect. Even with Miro coming for Malakai, we need to get House of Black VS Darby & Sting first. Miro could even go after Malakai after the match, regardless of who wins. I don’t know if it has to be a full Face turn for Miro, but he will come off the Face against Malakai since fans still love Miro. As for Mox, the possibilities really are endless for who he can face for the Interim title at All Out. Personally, whether or not Joe wins against Lethal at DBD, give me some Mox VS Joe!

My Score: 8.9/10

GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Championship Postponed 

Due to Chris Ridgeway being unable to get a Visa in time for the Nippon Budokan event on July 12th, the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Championship match has been postponed. Therefore, Yoshinari Ogawa and Yuya Susumu will team together against Eita and Kotaro Suzuki. Susumu says he knows he cannot replace Ridgeway, but will fight with him in mind.

Seiki Yoshioka attacks HAYATA (repeatedly)

Following his GHC Junior Heavyweight challenge to HAYATA, Seiki Yoshioka turned the tension up a notch by fighting with HAYATA after the match in Fukushima on the 2nd (HAYATA had made him bleed) and introducing him to his new superkick, and then intruding on the match in Yamagata on the 3rd, which got the match thrown out. Poor HAYATA had been kicked in head quite a few times over the course of the two days, and so was not in any position to speak. Seiki Yoshioka was though, he had taken the belt backstage, and holding it up the camera announced that he was putting everything on the line to win, and he would knock HAYATA out again at The Budokan. Yuya Susumu later posted on his Twitter that he felt he had to apologize for how Yoshioka was behaving.

Speaking of STINGER (HAYATA, Yoshinari Ogawa & Yuya Susumu) came out wearing the green NOAH baseball shirts in Yamagata for the match against Perros Del Mal De Japon (Kotaro Suzuki, NOSAWA Rongai & Super Crazy). They never explained why they were wearing green, and fans were left to speculate that either they were showing their solidarity as NOAH Juniors to Perros, or it was an Ogawa mind game to remind Kotaro where he came from and who he belonged with. The singles match between Kotaro and Ogawa on July 2nd was naturally ruined by Perros who got the match thrown out by intrusion. Given NOSAWA’S comments backstage to Kotaro about “trying harder”, I am wondering how long Kotaro is going to put up with this.

Kenoh, Kojima (and Kobashi)

Following two frustrating pre matches in which neither the champion or the challenger won over the other, and an escalation in “competition” where Kenoh did press ups backstage next to a fallen Satoshi Kojima in Fukushima, and Kojima demonstrated Lion press ups to Kenoh in Yamagata (who comically appeared in front of him and then attacked him screaming about “The Mark of The Lion” and how if he missed it so much he should wear his new t-shirt), Kenoh sought advice from the master of the lariat, Kenta Kobashi by making a first visit to his gym. Lariats are not something Kenoh has used before, so it will be interesting to see if the teaching he got from Kobashi was how to throw them or how to withstand them.

GHC Heavyweight Tag Champion Humiliation

Satoshi Kojima might have had a frustrating stalemate, but at least Kojima was spared the humiliation that the GHC Heavyweight Tag Champions endured, when again they lost via Masa Kitamiya submitting to Hideki Suzuki in Yamagata. Suzuki had said he was doing a kind of scouting mission as he wanted to know their strengths and weaknesses and the strengths and weaknesses of their techniques. Timothy Thatcher was given a firsthand look, when the champions demonstrated their new tandem move, a double powerbomb, to win the match.

Go Shiozaki & Shuhei Taniguchi miss events

Go Shiozaki was absent from the 2nd and 3rd July weekend events due to being a close contact with someone with Coronavirus. This necessitated a card change as it was almost last minute. What was last minute (as in about seven minutes before the event started) was Shuhei Taniguchi being withdrawn from the event due to mild heatstroke.

Yoshiki Inamura’s Fire Festival 2022

Although Yoshiki Inamura did not defeat Masato Tanaka, his Fire Festival opened with a time limit draw at thirty minutes. Inamura didn’t feel that he had approached Tanaka with this, but has sworn to beat everyone else and return to NOAH with the sword.

ELSEWHERE IN NOAH

– Tadasuke is wondering why there has been no comeback from the NOAH Junior Regulars regarding his banishment of Haoh (who seems to have vanished off the face of the earth). I think Tadasuke will get his answer when NOAH are back in Tokyo.

– Alejandro greeted the Yamagata crowd as the Fukushima one, to be scolded by Hajime Ohara for his mistake.

– Kenoh’s Michinoku Pro rival, Fujita “Jnr” Hayato, made his return to the ring following a five year absence due to cancer. He named two people he wanted to fight, Hiromu Takahashi and of course, Kenoh. Kenoh says that he should fight Hayato first. Not only did Hayato mention him first, but even by the Japanese (gojūon) syllabary Kenoh (i.e. KE) comes first. Kenoh then returned to his preoccupation that seems to be obsessing him these days, “The Lion Mark” (New Japan logo).

– Kenoh grumbled that he preferred the sea to rivers just before he posted a video of himself doing Lion Push ups by one.
