“Tomorrow, myself, Evil Uno, and Stu Grayson have a very, very important match. Isn’t that right, Stu?” “Yeah.” Yes, there is the 5v5 Elimination Tag Match, Hangman Page & The Dark Order VS #TheSuperElite, and a lot is on the line! Hangman’s AEW World Championship aspirations and an AEW World Tag Team Championship opportunity for the Dark Order! But that doesn’t mean that they can’t have their desserts before the main course! Uno loves dessert, by the way.

And so, he and Stu asked for tonight’s tag match to prove a point. Stu, tell them what they’re gonna do! “Hurt them!” Yes! So the Elite better be watching, because they’re going to see the Dark Order is the best tag team in All Elite Wrestling!

No more go-go bars, mommy milkers, sausage castles, no more bad influences like Alex Marvez.” But next week, it is the 100TH episode of AEW Dark! Joey & Sonny are finally getting on the road to the gold, the AEW World Tag Team Championships! Matt & Nick, they’re putting you on notice and coming for the straps! Sonny says Joey said it all.

Angel Dorado teams up with the Ivy League MVP and Bulletproof BPJ to take on some common enemies in Platinum Max Caster, the Five Tool Player, Anthony Bowens, and the Hollywood Hunk! But as always, Caster has a diss rap on deck! “It’s the Acclaimed, and y’all know the deal. The Second Amendment should be repealed! And now that Max is on the beat, I’m the only one here that really packs heat! I stay spittin’ like a punksta. Call me Johnson & Johnson, leaving you with blood clots. If Julia’s gettin’ involved, I’m a rip her like Ezekiel Elliot’s dog!” Oof. Or rather, woof. Bowens adds, “DALLAAAAS~!

They mug BPJ, Caster throws more haymakers, then tags Bowens. The Acclaimed mug BPJ, fans rally up and Bowens puts BPJ in a corner to CHOP! BPJ CHOPS back! And again! And fires forearms!

Nemeth has the leg but Dante kicks him away and as Nemeth rebounds, Dante jumps up for the ANGEL STUNNER!! Jackknife cover, Dante and the Blonds win!

Winners: Dante Martin & The Varsity Blonds, by pinfall

Julia raises Dante’s hand in victory, and the Blonds get the mic! BPJ mocks Caster, “Yo! Yo! Yo~! I knew you’d be looking for this! I knew you’d be looking for the microphone, Anthony. Because that’s the one thing you guys do right, is talk.” BPJ gives them that, but there’s a lot that the Blonds do right in the ring, and that’s why they’re the #1 RANKED TEAM in the #1 COMPANY in the world!! They’re bigger, stronger, faster, and you could put a concrete wall between them and the AEW World Tag Team Championships, and the Varsity Blonds will run right through it! And The Acclaimed are a lot softer than concrete.

So maybe The Acclaimed should put money where mouths are, and get back in the ring! And then mic politely set down. Bowens wants to but Caster says they’ll settle this another time. But when and where will we see who are truly THE #1 contenders to the AEW World Tag Team Championships?


My Thoughts:

Another episode of just a few matches, under 45 minutes, another manageable episode for PBP to be back for. But it seems Dark classic is on the road with Dynamite, which is fine. We got a good promo from Uno & Stu, and they of course won their match tonight against Warren Johnson & Zach Mason to build momentum into Fight for the Fallen. Velvet got a good match out of Lion, as did Abadon out of Killa Kate, both are staying strong in the AEW Women’s Division midcard.

Swole VS Diamante was very good and could’ve gone either way, but I think it’s great that Diamante won with that sneaky pin. This feud can continue, I really hope they get to up it to Elevation and really give us something great. And speaking of the building feud, another great showing from The Acclaimed and Varsity Blonds with extra add-ons in Dante and Nemeth. But also, what side of the political spectrum is Caster on? Or is he just Chaotic Jackass, pissing everyone off? In a way, I actually appreciate that because he’s being an equal opportunity troll.

It worked great for Dante to get the pin in the win tonight, that keeps things even between Acclaimed and Blonds. I hope Acclaimed VS Blonds happens on Dynamite, these two teams deserve a little bit of spotlight before going after whoever are the tag champs after All Out.

My Score: 8.2/10

Cover, Claudio wins!!

Winner: Claudio Castagnoli, by pinfall (still ROH World Champion)

Regal says that was an amazing showing from Konosuke, and he admits how close that was to a win for Konosuke! But if this is as good as Konosuke is now, just how more amazing will he become in the coming years? And as for the winner, the Swiss Superman is still the champion, how much harder will he fight to keep this reign going?


My Thoughts:

An awesome hour of wrestling right here, with just the wrestling! Bonus points to me for calling the order of matches from the start. The TNT Championship was an awesome opener, with Wardlow getting a great win off a great star like Lethal. At the same time, I should’ve figured the Heels would beat Wardlow down after that match. They might even be able to swing this to where Lethal gets another shot at Wardlow at All Out for an even better match. The AEW Women’s World Championship match was great, and of course Britt and Rebel get involved here and there. Rosa gets the win with a quick pin so it’s not like Hayter looked weak there. But maybe they’ll swing this to give us another match of Rosa VS Britt for the title at All Out.

And what an awesome match from the ROH World Championship with Claudio VS Konosuke. That was perhaps one of the more competitive examples of a first title defense and a first title challenge in a long time. I feel like that place would’ve exploded if Konosuke actually pulled this one off, but it made a lot of sense for Claudio to retain. Claudio is going to carry the banner for ROH as a returning classic name, much like with Samoa Joe. And Konosuke can now believably be in just about any title scene with this performance, I’m pretty sure.

My Score: 8.8/10

Warner whips Moxley hard into steel steps! Fans fire up as the steps go sliding! Warner drags Moxley up and whips him into railing!

Moxley drags Warner up the steps, reels him in, but Warner throws body shots! Warner turns things around, DDT to the steel steps! Fans fire up while both men are down and AEW goes picture in picture!

Warner writhes, that was double-edged for him. But he gets his arms moving, drags himself off the steps, and gets himself in the ring. Warner waits on Moxley as he stands up and staggers around. Moxley goes the wrong way, flops to the floor, and the count is 7! Moxley springs up and in at 9! For Warner to BOOT him down!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (DENIES Warner a title match)

The Ohio Maniac just showed the Southern Psycho why you don’t wanna fight him. Step up or get stepped on! Will Moxley make sure Jericho understands that explicitly at Quake by the Lake?

 

AEW shares Lexi Nair’s interview with Ricky Starks.

She knows his emotions are running high after the betrayal by Will Hobbs, but he has her hold on. Because the Factory’s there waiting for him. Aaron Solo, Anthony Ogogo, Nick Comoroto, new recruit Cole Karter, and of course QT Marshall. QT tells Ricky that this is two weeks in a row that Hobbs absolutely laid him out. And normally, this type of protection QT is offering would cost a lot of money, but hey, for Starks? It’ll be o the house. On the house, huh? Where’d they get this fool from? Starks of course means Comoroto in his blue velvet tracksuit. Solo says this is classic Ricky. He cracks jokes, makes things about himself, just like when he and Solo were a team.

Solo knows Starks better than anyone, so he doesn’t blame Hobbs for doing what he did. But as an old friend, take the help. Oh, take the hep? Starks doesn’t need anyone’s help! So QT can kiss his ass! QT has his boys stand down, they’ll get Starks soon enough. Will Starks not need help against the Powerhouse coming for him?

 

Konosuke Takeshita VS Ryan Nemeth w/ Peter Avalon!

The Future of DDT has an ROH World Championship match in his near future, but his immediate future is the Hollywood Hunk. Will Konosuke use Nemeth as a tune-up for the Swiss Cyborg? Or will Nemeth show that he should be considered the future of wrestling?

Nemeth eggs Konosuke on during his entrance, so Konosuke runs and slides into the ring, dodges Nemeth as the bell rings, and ROCKS him with forearms! Konosuke whips, Nemeth reverses but Konosuke ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING FOREARM! Fans fire up with Konosuke and he runs in at Nemeth for a BOOT! Konosuke then drags Nemeth up, climbs up, and rains down fists! Fans count all the way to 10, and then Konosuke lets Nemeth drop. Konosuke prepares his elbow pad, builds speed, but Nemeth distracts the ref so that Avalon can trip Konosuke up! Konosuke glares but Nemeth CLOBBERS Konosuke!

Nemeth half nelsons to throw knee after knee! Konosuke drops and Nemeth swivels the hips, then thrusts them! Nemeth drags Konosuke up, turns him, swivels a bit more, but Konosuke powers out to scoop, BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Fans fire up as Konosuke aims from the corner! Nemeth staggers up, into the V-TRIGGER!! A shout out to his mentor, Kenny Omega! Cover, Konosuke wins!

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

But then Avalon attacks! Avalon clubs away on Konosuke, but Konosuke gets up, dodges, JUMP KNEE!! Konosuke is standing tall and feeling good, but will he be able to take the ROH title from Claudio Gaddam Castagnoli?

 

AEW shares Lexi Nair’s interview with Best Friends.

A tough loss for Orange Cassidy against Jay Lethal, we now check in on him in the medical room. She says Lethal did a number on Cassidy’s leg, what is the status of the injury? Chuck says they tried to break the leg, so that’s an update. And Lethal’s guys have been trying to destroy Chuck’s boys, and they’re not doing great. Cassidy is out of the top five in singles, Best Friends are out of the top five in tag, so something needs to change. Trent says Best Friends need to stick together. They’re at their best when they’re together. Maybe even as a trio! The new titles are coming! Everyone, hands in! Trios on three! Wait! “Doctor” Danhausen joins in, too! Oh, wow. But one way or another, will Best Friends be golden in this coming Trios Tournament?

 

Madison Rayne VS Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway!

The new Supervising Coach of the AEW Women’s Division is also the newest member of the AEW Women’s Division! Not that The Baddies liked hear about that. Jade Cargill got in Madison’s face on Elevation, but will the Provisional Baddie do the dirty work? Or will Madison have an impact in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up for Rayne, she and Grey tie up. They are in a deadlock, but Rayne finds a point of leverage and pushes Grey back. Grey turns that around to put Rayne in the corner, and the ref counts. Grey lets off at 4, but hits Rayne with a cheap shot! Rayne shakes her head and storms up on Grey, but Grey uses the ropes as a defense! Rayne backs off, Grey gets out of the ropes, and the two circle again. They tie up, Rayne waistlocks, but Grey switches. Rayne switches, Grey switches again, repeat! They keep switching, Rayne smirks, but Grey elbows out then ROCKS Rayne with a forearm!

Grey whips but Rayne uses that to arm-drag and cover, TWO! Rayne trips Grey, jackknifes, TWO! Grey hurries up but Rayne gets around to backslide, TWO! Rayne arm-drags and clamps on with a cording hold. Fans rally up but Grey fights up. Grey thrashes but Rayne holds on tight! Grey reaches out but Rayne arm-drags her from the ropes! Grey still fights up, pulls hair, and she puts Rayne in the corner. The ref counts, Grey lets off, but she kicks low now! Grey whips Rayne corner to corner, runs in but Rayne sips out to the apron! Rayne shoulder sin, but Stokely distracts her with stomps on the steps! Grey BLASTS Rayne off the apron!

Rayne clutches a leg while she’s on the ground, and Stokely cheers Grey as Rampage goes picture in picture. Grey goes out to stomp Rayne, drag her up, and smack her off the apron! Grey then CHOPS Rayne against the apron, then snap suplexes her to the floor! Rayne crawls but Grey CLUBS her down. Grey refreshes the ring count, then KICKS Rayne in the chest! Grey drags Rayne up, UPPERCUTS her, then brings her around, to RAM into railing! Grey and Stokely both taunt Rayne, but Rayne sits up to throw body shots! Grey CLUBS Rayne, Rayne throws more shots. Grey CLUBS Rayne, puts her in the ring, and pushes her to a cover, TWO!

Grey is frustrated with Rayne, but Rayne is a multiple time women’s champion. Grey drags Rayne up, UPPERCUTS her again, and Rayne staggers to a corner. Grey drags Rayne up to cravat and CHOKE her against the ropes! The ref counts, Grey lets off and Rayne sputters to the corner. The ref reprimands Grey but she doesn’t care. She storms up on Rayne, but into a kick! And another kick! Rayne ROCKS Grey, Grey ROCKS Rayne, and Grey snapmares Rayne as AEW goes to break.

Rampage returns as Rayne endures a chinlock. Fans rally, Rayne fights up and throws body shots! Rayne JAWBREAKERS, then ENZIGURIS Grey down! Fans fire up as Rayne throws forearms and CHOPS on repeat! Rayne DECKS Grey, then eggs her on! Grey staggers up, Rayne spins her around for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Grey survives and Rayne sighs. Stokely coaches Grey up, Rayne drags Grey up into a ripcord, but Grey powers out of the stunner! SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO!! Rayne survives again and Grey is losing her cool! Grey drags Rayne up, cravats, but Rayne breaks free to ROCK Grey!

Grey ROCKS Rayne back, Rayne ROCKS Grey! Grey forearms, Rayne fires off a flurry, then shoves, but Grey gets around, FACE- NO, Rayne slips out and SLIDING LARIATS! Rayne drags Grey up, dragon sleeper, CROSS RAYNE! Cover, Rayne wins!

Winner: Madison Rayne, by pinfall

But she doesn’t get to celebrate long, because “A storm is coming.” Jade struts out to say, “Good help is so hard to find these days. I knew I should’ve handled your ass all on my own. Now Maddy, as you know, I’m #ThatBitch, and this? This is MY show! Now as you all know, I am big on charity. And I have an open challenge this Wednesday on Dynamite. So Maddy, I would love to invite you to show up, show out, and get that ass beat!” Madison wants the fight now! But Jade says Rayne should take some days off first. Kiera Hogan gets in from behind! She kicks Rayne, but Rayne turns things back, CROSS RAYNE!

Will Rayne add yet another title to her resume? Or will she just be another number on the undefeated streak?

 

AEW looks at the coming Tornado Tag match!

Rey Fenix tells Andrade and Rush, “FINALLY, it’s time! For you to put up or shut up.” But Rush says, “If they want a fight, then we’ll give them a fight!” Andrade wants Rush to tranquilo. Los Lucha Brothers need to wait until Wednesday. Alex Abrahantes says that if La Faccion Ingobernables really is the best luchadors, then the match needs to be lucha rules! LFI IS the best, second to none! But Penta says #CeroMiedo! Will nothing stop these two teams from tearing it down with their tornado tag?

 

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Men is cut off by “Smart” Mark Sterling already! And Sterling says Swerve must be pretty pleased with himself. Swerve won last week’s Handicap Match, but he pinned the lawyer. Big whoop! Tonight, they have a STREET FIGHT! Anything goes! They still have the Premier Athlete, and now they have “the technical beast,” Josh Woods! A national wrestling champion, a former ROH Pure Champion, and Keith Lee met him last week. Woods helped Keith take a little nap, didn’t he?

Sterling’s guys laugh that up, but Swerve just tells Sterling to shut up. They had to go through all this trouble, all this red tape, petitions and interrupting celebrations, all disrespectful, hence the cake in Sterling’s face. All they had to do was ask, and step up like men. But if they wanna mess around, then the champs can do that, too. Keith says that Sterling claims to be smart, but there is nothing smart in him asking for this Street Fight. And to Woods, “Listen, little man. You stepped to the wrong people, and you’re gonna find out today, when we’re done with you, you’ll be nothing more than a footnote on our journey to a properly ranked tag team.”

Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Sterling’s #PremierGoods be nothing but trash compared to the Limitless House?

Tag Team Street Fight: Swerve in Our Glory VS Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling!

Both teams get out of the ring and split up, the brawl is on! The bell rings and Woods RAMS Swerve into railing! Swerve CLUBS back, but Woods RAMs him into the apron! Keith RAMS Nese into railing! And then CLUBS him down! Nese drew the short straw here but Woods RAMS Swerve into more railing! Keith glare at Woods but he has Nese to TOSS him aside. Now Woods and Keith get face to face, and Woods throws a forearm! Keith grins but Woods throws more shots! Keith GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Swerve fires forearms on Nese, Nese runs in but Swerve drop toeholds him into a chair!

Keith ROCKS Woods and Woods flounders away. Keith looms over Woods, drags him up, and Swerve joins Keith in mugging Woods against railing! Fans rally up, Woods throws hands but Swerve BOOTS Woods down! Nese returns, to throw PROTEIN POWDER in Keith’s face! Keith sputters after being blinded, but Nese eats up that powder. Swerve KICKS Nese right in the powder! Swerve then brings Nese around and whips him into steel steps! Swerve dusts Keith off, then looks under the ring to bring out a toolbox! Swerve CHUCKS it but Nese narrowly dodges it! The box breaks apart against the steps!

Woods CLOBBERS Swerve from behind! Woods shouts, “Whose house now?!” Keith asks for water to wash out the powder, fans offer some and Keith takes a bottle. Swerve RAMS Woods into steel steps and now Keith can see. Nese is on the apron, he leaps to CLOBBER Keith with part of the toolbox! Swerve brings Woods around to fireman’s carry, but Woods slips off and ROCKS Swerve with a right! And then suplexes to run and SLAM Swerve on the steel steps! “This is Daddy’s house now!” Sterling cheers for his guys as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Woods drags Swerve up, brings him around, and stomps him down. Woods rains down fists and hammering arms on Keith while Nese puts Swerve in the ring. Nese tosses a trash can into the ring, tries with the lid, but that doesn’t make it. Woods catches the lid, though, and Nese puts another can in the ring. Sterling even gets a table! Nese puts a can in one corner, stomps Swerve, but Swerve fires off hands! Nese ROCKS Swerve, then puts him in a corner. Sterling sets up the table, Nese whips Swerve into the trash can! Cover, TWO! Nese argues but he count is the count. Woods drags Swerve up to whip and KNEE against ropes!

Woods then hits n EXPLODER onto the trash can lid! Swerve sputters and flounders, but Nese drags him back up. Nese whips but Swerve stops from being sent outside! Swerve throws hands, BOOTS Nese, then stomps a mudhole in! Woods SMACKS Swerve with the trash can lid! Keith climbs but Sterling anchors him! Woods SMACKS Keith with the lid! Woods drags Swerve to a cover, TWO! Woods is annoyed but Swerve kicks him. Nese and Woods mug Swerve, then Nese scrapes Keith out. Nese drags Swerve over and Woods helps put Swerve on the apron. They mug Swerve, then Nese reels Swerve in.

Nese lifts but Swerve blocks! Woods CLUBS Swerve, but Swerve throws an elbow!  Nese kicks Swerve, stomps Keith, and Woods half nelsons Swerve. Nese soaks up the heat while Woods CLUBS Swerve. Nese stomps Kieth again, then goes back to Swerve. Nese points to the table, but Keith grabs at Nese! Nese stomps Keith, Woods and Swerve brawl, and AEW returns to single picture. Nese throat chops Swerve! Nese reels him in, Woods helps get Swerve up, but Swerve fights for dear life! Swerve throws body shots and ROCKS Nese with a right! Woods CLUBS Swerve but Keith grabs Woods! Woods CLUBS Keith away!

Swerve BOOTS Woods! Keith drags Woods down, Nese runs in but Swerve slingshots to sunset flip! Nese rolls through to SOBAT! Cover, Keith breaks it! Keith whips Nese to run him over! Woods returns, but Keith LARIATS! Fans fire up as Keith SPALSHE Woods in one corner, and SPALSHES Nese in the other! Then Keith TOSSES Nese into Woods! Fans fire up as Keith snarls! Keith storms up on Nese and Woods, stands them up so he can run, but Sterling SMACKS Keith with a chair! Sterling celebrates, but Keith didn’t even budge!!

Double cover, but Swerve is up top! 450 SPLASH breaks the pin!! Fans are thunderous as all four men are down! Sterling hurries to get another table!

Swerve aims, Nese sits back up, and fans fire up for the “Whose House?” “Swerve’s house!” But Sterling CLOBBERS swerve with a WRENCH!

Keith dodges, to then HEADBUTT Nese down! Sterling panics, but then takes off his jacket! Sterling goes up top!? Keith grabs Sterling’s foot!

Woods fires off more forearms, tries again, but Nese runs in to SUPERKICK! GERMAN SUPLEX through both tables!!! Woods and Keith are down as fans lose their minds!! Nese hurries to get chairs and put them in the ring! Swerve flounders as Nese has about half a dozen chairs and a trash can lid! Nese drags Swerve up and around, but Swerve fires body shots!

The champs got one hell of a fight, but they still won the fight! Will Sterling give up on going after Keith & Swerve? Who will be up next for the AEW World Tag Team Champions?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage as part of this big week AEW has going. Moxley VS Warner was a wild opener, and of course there was blood, and of course Moxley won. Warner did great, he’s definitely got a strong career ahead of him. Moxley has momentum going into his match with Jericho, that title match will be great. And with that promo from Lucha Bros and LFI, Quake by the Lake is going to be great with that tornado tag. Really good backstage interview segments but uh, is QT trying to turn The Factory into a mafia parody? I really do wonder what is up with Comoroto’s outfit. But I feel like Starks is going to have to fight The Factory AND Hobbs on his own at this point. And Best Friends going into the Trios Division makes sense. They’ll help fill out the tournament, but sadly, I don’t see them as a finalist.

Konosuke of course gets a win off Nemeth, a little surprised this wasn’t on that bonus episode of Elevation. Now, is it just me, or was that Madison Rayne VS Leila Grey match really clunky? Is Rayne not as good as her resume suggests? And I’m pretty sure Jade beats Rayne to keep her streak going. I would be really disappointed if AEW was able to sign Rayne by offering her that. But at least we finish strong with that awesome Tag Team Street Fight. I knew Sterling would get involved, but kudos to him for taking that table spot. And naturally, the champions win. Keith & Swerve still have time to find contenders for All Out, I can’t wait to see where they go with this.

My Score: 8.5/10
