The Five Labors of Jericho, Chapter 1: Chris Jericho VS Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman again gave a list of demands, and this time, it was truly Herculean! The Demo God must survive every epic challenge put before him if he wants to get his hands on the pompous puppet master! But when The Chair Man is allowed to use chairs and Jericho isn’t, will this be a sadistically short story?

But speaking of, MJF makes his way out after Spears so that he can join commentary and watch every second of this with his own eyes. Fans tell MJF, “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” and MJF tells them to shut up. The bell rings, MJF welcomes us to the Labours of Jericho, not to be confused with Jericho in labor, although his physique does look like a pregnant woman. Spears has his chair at the ready but Jericho gets past that to ROCK Spears! And CHOP, and CHOP, and CHOP! Spears kicks low, throws hands, but Jericho hits back! Jericho whips, knocks Spears down, and fans fire up as MJF puts himself over as a genius.

Jericho goes out after Spears to throw haymakers! Spears staggers around the way, Jericho CHOPS him, then whips him hard into railing! Fans fire up and Jericho confiscates a camera to get a shot of the arena. Fans fire up more as Jericho gives the camera back to kick Spears. Spears gets in the ring, gets his chair but Jericho CHOPS him down!

Spears bails out, fans chant “JERICHO! JERICHO!” and Jericho drags Spears up to the apron. Jericho clubs Spears, Spears grabs at a leg but Jericho kicks him down. Fans fire up with Jericho as he aims at Spears and DECKS him off the apron! Spears gets another chair from under the ring while Jericho gives thumbs up to the fans. Jericho triangle jumps but Spears throws the chair in his face!! Down goes Jericho and fans boo Spears but MJF compliments “The Canadian God.” Spears rains down fists, grabs the bad arm and stomps it down! Spears looms over Jericho, fans rally up, and Jericho CHOPS back! And throws forearms! And hits an ENZIGURI!

Fans rally but MJF says Jericho does cheap shot after cheap shot. Jericho climbs, Spears goes up, SUPER ARM-DRAG! MJF is fired up as Spears covers, TWO! Spears is annoyed but he gets the bad arm and brings it to the corner. Spears throws haymakers before he wraps the arm around the post. Spears has a chair and SMACKS the arm against the post! Spears soaks up the heat and then digs fingers into Jericho’s face. Spears CLUBS Jericho in the chest, gets in the ring, and fans tell Spears, “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” Spears gets Jericho up, CHOPS him in the corner, then Spears flips off the fans. Spears runs corner to corner but Jericho dodges!

Jericho comes back to run Spears over! And again! Spears throws Jericho out but Jericho lands on the apron and goes up top! DOUBLE AX HANDLES! MJF claims loaded elbow pad but Jericho elbows Spears them puts him up top. Jericho CHOPS, climbs up, and throws down fists! MJF mocks the fans counting, and then Jericho hits a SUPER STEINER! Fans are thunderous and MJF is upset with Spears as Jericho runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO! Jericho survives and Spears grows frustrated. Spears crawls over to get a chair. Fans rally up for Jericho as Spears wedges the chair into a corner.

Spears endures, fans are thunderous and MJF Is furious! Jericho drags Spears away from ropes but Tully distracts! Spears taps abut the ref misses it!!

Spears gets the chair as he flails, but here comes Sammy Guevara! Sammy drags Tully down, Tully shoves him, but Sammy dodges the haymaker. Sammy backs Tully down, Spears turns back over, CHAIR SHOT!! Fireman’s carry, C4!! Cover, TWO!?! Jericho survives and Spears is shocked! Fans are thunderous for “JERICHO! JERICHO!” but MJF says he should be getting the chants since he’s beaten Jericho before.

Jericho slips out before the metal C4! Jericho RAMS Spears into the corner chair! JUDAS EFFECT!! Cover, Jericho wins!!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

MJF demands to cut the music and the celebration short! “Mazel tov, Chris, congratulations. You’ve passed labor number one. Although, you needed the help from your glorified young boy, Sammy ‘The Simp’ Guevara.” MJF tells the fans to shut up with the booing but they just boo harder. But MJF makes it clear that if he has anyone else come out and help him through any more, the deal is off! But since Jericho loves to break the rules so much, then why have any rules at all?

Labour Number 2 will be No Disqualifications. And it’ll be against a man who doesn’t mind breaking more rules. The most sadistic and criminal human being to ever step inside a squared circle, who once stabbed his opponent in the jugular, and once robbed a bank with no mask on! Jericho’s next opponent will be… NICK FREAKIN’ GAGE!! The deathmatch specialist has come to AEW, and has a pizza cutter with him?! Is Gage going to cut Jericho to pieces in just chapter two?!

 

Miro speaks.

“There have been many champions before me. But there will be no after. Because everybody is going to get to talk to the Redeemer, and I will forgive them all. For the homecoming of Dynamite in Jacksonville Florida, God’s Favorite Champion will fight. Tell me, who can beat me? This is the word of the Redeemer.” But who will it be meeting Miro back in Daily’s Place to be baptized by fire?

 

Frankie Kazarian VS Luke Gallows w/ Karl Anderson!

The Heavy Metal Rebel turned Elite Hunter has his next target, and it’s a big one! Will big Doc Gallows be the first to fall?

The bell rings and Kaz goes right at Gallows with fast hands! Gallows shoves him away but Kaz dropkicks him back! Kaz fires off more hands, Gallows shoves him away again but Kaz dodges. Kaz COHPS but hurts more his hand than Gallows’ chest! Gallows whips Kaz, Kaz dodges and Gallows hits buckles. Kaz goes up, missile dropkick! Gallows stays up but ends up in a corner.

Kaz hits buckles, Gallows turns him around, and whips him back the other way. Kaz tumbles out and hits the floor!

Fans boo but Gallows soaks up the heat. The ref keeps Gallows in the ring but Anderson runs up and CLOBBERS Kaz! Fans boo but the Machine Gun gets away with that as AEW goes picture in picture.

Gallows is still strong but fans still rally for “Frankie! Frankie!” Kaz gets Gallows up, Gallows fights the chicken wing, and Anderson grabs on!

The ref is distracted with Gallows but Kaz gets Anderson with a GUILLOTINE LEG DROP! But a YAKUZA KICK gets Kaz! Gallows gets Kaz with body hands, GALLOWS’ POLE! Cover, Gallows wins!

Winner: Luke Gallows, by pinfall

It was basically a handicap match at the end, and that’s why Kaz lost! But now the Good Brothers beat up Kaz to send a message! They get Kaz up, for the MAGIC KILLER! And now Kenny Omega makes his way out! He and Don Callis, too. Callis says it’s time for all of us to see our AEW World Champion! And all these Texans better take a good look. This is what happens when you mess with The Elite! Callis and Omega join them in the ring as Gallows keeps Kaz down. This is what happens when you mess with The Elite, with the Good Brothers, and Kenny Goddamn Omega! Does Omega want anything to say?

Omega gets the mic and says, “Welcome to my humble abode, said the spider to the fly.” For months, Kaz has been a thorn in their side. The Elite Hunter? Hah! How the tables have turned, because the Elite Hunter has become the… How does it go? Callis helps Omega get through it: The Elite Hunter has become the Elite Hunted. Callis says this is just a sample of what The Elite will do to Hangman Page next week. Speaking off, here comes Hangman! Texas is fired up for the #CowboySh*t that is about to go down! Hangman gets in the ring and Callis says whoa now. Listen, Callis wants Hangman to look and see he is outnumbered 4v1!

Callis knows Hangman can count to four, and cowboys aren’t bright. Is Hangman just that stupid? Or is he just that drunk? Hangman makes Callis hold his drink, and then he fires off hands! The Good Brothers knock Hangman down! But here comes The Dark Order! Stu Grayson leads the charge as they chase off Omega and Callis and then take the fight to the Good Brothers! Anderson is stuck, he gets a ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds, a dropkick from Silver, and a STUNNER from Reynolds! BUCK SHOT from Hangman!! This fight is coming at Fight for the Fallen, will Hangman & The Dark Order wrangle their championship opportunities in North Carolina?

 

Backstage interview with Brian Cage.

Earlier, Team Taz announced this via social media: Taz himself said “History was made last week on Dynamite. We crowned a brand new FTW Champion in Absolute Ricky Starks. I’m so proud of you, man.” Starks thanks Taz for that and asks the fans hold their applause. He just wants to cordially invite everyone in Charlotte, NC next week as they’re putting together one of the BIGGEST celebrations you will ever see ever. And being from New Orleans, Starks knows somethin’ about partying. So he guaran-damn-tees that the NEW FTW Champion is going to show up and show out in Absolute fashion.

Cage’s response to this? Are they still here? Nope. Well, next week, a celebration for the new champion. Cage says that works out. He loves parties. Will the Machine make sure he has a very special gift for Starks and all of Team Taz?

 

Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Orange Cassidy!

The Relentless One is living up to that name, because after winning last week’s Coffin Match, and still crashing through the coffin just because he could, Darby is back in action tonight! But will the Decoder do his mentors proud by taking down one of the brightest stars in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, break and reset. Fans are fired up for Darby as he wrenches, shifts to a hammerlock, but Yuta spins. Darby spins with him to keep the hammerlock on! Yuta spins again but still Darby goes through. Darby then snapmares, trips, covers, ONE as Yuta goes Matrix! But Darby is ready and he drags Yuta down with a ghost pin! TWO, and Darby is after the arm. Yuta shoves Darby away and Darby hits buckles ribs first! Cameras point out that Bullet Club’s Hikuleo is watching this very closely. Yuta runs in but Darby dropkicks him down! Darby gets an arm, stomps it, and then drags Yuta up with a facelock.

Yuta blocks the suplex, throws a body shot, then mule kicks! Yuta hurries to get Darby up to suplex and he hangs Darby out to dry! Darby flops off the ropes, Yuta covers, TWO! Yuta keeps on Darby in a corner, throws more body shots, but Darby turns it around to CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Darby whips, Yuta reverses and runs in but into boots! Darby goes up, Yuta trips him up! Yuta wrenches, hooks Darby up and has an IRON OCTOPUS! Darby endures as an elbow digs into his ribs! Darby waddles over to the ropebreak with his face! The ref counts, Yuta lets off, but he waistlocks.

Darby fights it off and Yuta rewinds as he skins the cat, to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Yuta hurries to a corner, goes up top, but Darby trips him up! Darby climbs, gets Yuta up, and SUPERPLEXES! Both men are down from that impact and fans are fired up. Cassidy and Sting each coach their protégé, but they look at each other. Fans fire up just for that stare down, and Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Sting gives Cassidy Sloth Style shin kick!? The audacity! But then Cassidy gives it back!? It’s a kick fight outside the ring! Cassidy powers up, but Sting blocks Sweet Shin Music with a kick of his own!

Sting gives a Sloth Style beating of the chest, and then Darby shouts at them, “What’s going on?” But Wheeler rolls Darby up!! TWO!! Wheeler hurries to hook Darby up, GHOST PIN, TWO!! Darby escapes his own pin type, but Wheeler keeps going! Darby slips out of the double chicken wing cradle, gets around, THROWBACK STUNNER! Fans fire up as Darby goes up, for the COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Through the pain in his ribs, and the odd distraction at ringside, the Relentless is victorious! Will Darby take a moment to finally rest up and get back to 100%? Or will he keep rolling on, despite the bad ribs?

Cassidy checks on Yuta, but gets jumped by The Blade!! The Hardy Family Office’s merciless mercenary wants after Cassidy already! Wait, he just used the brass knuckles on Cassidy! Did he just make sure his match with Cassidy doesn’t happen tonight?!

 

AEW looks back to the Moxley VS Archer Texas Deathmatch in NJPW.

Jon Moxley speaks first, “What do you do when something’s outside your house at night? Do you huddle the people you love in the basement? It comes back a second time, what do you do? Do you board the doors shut? It comes back a third time, do you just grab a shotgun, go outside and take care of business?” Archer says “Aw hell yeah, it’s part two of the Texas Deathmatch, right here in my hometown, my backyard.” Archer’s been waiting a year and a half for this one. A year and half to get back HIS IWGP United States Championship! Moxley has always had respect for Archer, but the stakes have been raised too high. Moxley vows to get Archer before Archer gets him.

Archer vows to break Moxley, put him down and make it so he never gets up. The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas, but Moxley’s about to see stars when he gets knocked out. Moxley will make Archer feel alone in his hometown. Tonight, Texas Deathmatch II, and one way or another, it’s over.

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero!

The Doctor finally put her money where her mouth is when she got this title off the Full Metal Warrior, Hikaru Shida. But there’s been a back and forth between her and the Native Beast, both in the ring and on the mic. Now Britt will have to put up or shut up yet again, can she keep hold of the gold against a hangry Nyla?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Britt’s first defense is also her last!

Fans are cheering for everyone other than Nyla and Vickie, right to Paul Turner the ref. Britt and Nyla tie up, Britt whips but Nyla runs her over. Nyla just grins as fans boo, and the two circle again. Britt runs in but into a waistlock! She fights off the suplex as fans cheer, “DMD! DMD!” Britt arm-drags Nyla down, drops knee after knee on the arm, then rolls to hammerlock the arm. Nyla endures as Britt sits on the hold and pulls harder. Britt leans on the arm, Nyla fights up and clubs at Britt’s legs. Britt becomes a backpack but is RAMMED into buckles. Nyla clutches the bad arm, Britt rushes in but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Britt gets around to roll Nyla up, TWO!

Britt keeps after the bad arm and uses it to flip Nyla over to a cover, ONE!! Britt keeps focused as she gets Nyla up and she fires off forearms! Britt runs but into a fireman’s carry and GORILLA PRESS SLAM! Then a BACK SENTON! Nyla rains down forearms and dribbles Britt off the mat! Fans boo as Nyla mocks, “This is who you came for?!” Nyla drags Britt up, fans rally, and Nyla hangs Britt out to dry. Nyla goes to a corner, climbs up, but Rebel saves Britt from the flying knee! Nyla storms over but Britt shoulders into her. Nyla staggers, runs in at the corner, but into a BUCKLE SHOT! Fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture.

Britt stomps a mudhole into Nyla, lets off as the ref counts, but goes out to drag Nyla into the post. Britt pulls on the arm to dig Nyla into the steel, and then scuffs Nyla as she lets off. Nyla swipes at Rebel as she gets too close, but Britt gets in to drag Nyla up. Britt wraps the bad arm around ropes to pull, the ref counts, but Britt kicks the bad arm as she lets off. Britt gets Nyla up, Nyla throws body shots! Nyla reels Britt in but Britt wrenches out of the suplex to ARM CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Britt keeps her cool and Vickie laughs as she’s still confident in Nyla. Britt goes after Nyla’s arms, clubs her in the shoulder, and has a hammerlock chinlock combo.

Nyla endures, Britt throws in more elbows, then she drags Nyla up to RAM the bad shoulder into buckles! Then hits a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Vickie cheers while Britt grows frustrated. Britt gets the bad arm again, clubs it as she has the armlock, then gets Nyla up again. Nyla throws more body shots but Britt ROCKS her with forearm after forearm! Nyla ROCKS Britt back with one! Britt BOOTS Nyla then whips her to ropes, but Nyla holds ropes to stop. AEW returns to single picture, Britt fires off forearms and runs, only to spin into an URENAGE! Nyla roars as she gets Britt back up, and scoops Britt for a BACKBREAKER! And then another!

Nyla bends Britt against her knee, gets her back up, and FALL AWAY SLAMS! Fans boo but Vickie is happy that Nyla stalks Britt to a corner. Nyla runs in to SPLASH! Britt sits down, Nyla calls her shot, and then CANNONBALLS but into buckles! Britt avoids the move that once broke her nose, then runs to SLINGBLADE Nyla down! Britt gets Nyla up for a flurry of forearms, but Nyla whips. Britt stops to backslide! Cover, TWO!! Nyla barely escapes, fans are upset by the weird count, but Britt DDT’s Nyla down! Cover, TWO!! Nyla is somehow still in this but fans boo. Rebel gets Britt her glove, now a shiny red, but she takes too long putting it on. Britt turns around into Nyla’s choke grip!

Nyla lifts for a CHOKE- No, Britt victory rolls! TWO!! Britt gets the arms, Rings of Saturn! But Nyla fights the Lockjaw to a fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Nyla gets Britt back up, reels her in, and hangs Britt out to dry again! Nyla wants this, and she climbs up again! Rebel hurries over, but Vickie is in her way! GUILLOTINE KNEE! Cover, TWO!!

Nyla falls, too, and fans fire up as both women are down! A standing count climbs but Rebel distracts the ref!

Britt crawls to a corner, and grabs the title belt! Britt aims but she copies the Guerrero classic! She tosses the belt to Nyla and plays like she got hit! Rebel stops distracting but now Vickie grabs at the ref! Britt sits up to see what the hold-up is, and Nyla gives her the belt! Nyla pretends that Britt is threatening her! The ref sees that, Britt drops the belt! Nyla kicks low, reels Britt in, BEAST BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?!? Britt survives?!? The fans are thunderous as Nyla gets Britt up again. Nyla goes for another but Britt slips out, takes Nyla down and floats to Rings of Saturn! Hand in, LOCKJAW!! Nyla endures, but she’s caught! Nyla nods and taps, BRITT WINS!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission (still AEW Women’s World Champion)

The Doctor is not a one and done! She gets it done, and she is still the face of the AEW Women’s Division! Will this mean big things next month for AEW in #Brittsburgh?

 

AEW holds a press conference for the coming tag team grudge match.

Tony Schiavone presides as moderator for the sit-down between the Inner Circle’s Santana & Ortiz, and the Pinnacle’s FTR. Tully Blanchard is with Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, but Konnan is not here with Proud ‘n’ Powerful. Fight for the Fallen next week, 7/28/21, in Charlotte, North Carolina, we will see this go down. Schiavone gives the floor to FTR.

Dax starts by revisiting how these two teams come from two different parts of the United States, but that they ain’t that different. All four men came from poverty, and Dax has respect for PNP as wrestlers. But as men, there’s not an ounce. Schiavone gives Santana & Ortiz a chance to respond. Ortiz says while FTR were “playing pattycake elsewhere,” PNP have been in AEW since day one. FTR attacked PNP’s family! Now they’re just a pitstop on the road to the tag titles. Santana gets up and says enough of this “pro-wrestling” stuff. He has a picture of his mother, 15 years old after having him. Another picture: Mom’s first apartment, “a sh*thole in the Bronx!”

A third picture, in the newspaper: his mom took the fight with the slumlords to court, just so they and others could have a decent place to live. Dax interrupts and says there are only three things he really cares about in this world: God, his family, and pro-wrestling. The only thing left to do in Charlotte is to show up and have FTR beat PNP’s ass! The two teams rush each other at the podium but security keeps this from going down here! That’s because it will go down in just 7 days! Will either team be walking away from this powder keg in the ring?

 

AEW returns and Schiavone is in the ring.

Back live in the one and only great state Texas, but he brings up how his guest has called out Death Triangle and promised something big on the horizon. He’s already made a name for himself worldwide and is here in AEW, it is Andrade El Idolo! Andrade makes his way out, his butler behind him. Schiavone welcomes Andrade to Dallas, and Andrade says to tranquilo. This interview starts with Andrade El Idolo’s surprise! The butler shows Schiavone his tablet, and Schiavone is rather shocked! Schiavone says, “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the new executive consultant to Andrade El Idolo… CHAVO GUERRERO!

WHAT!? Chavito is back in wrestling!? The link to Vickie Guerrero runs deep as Chavo is here in AEW! Chavo and Andrade hug it out and Chavo gets the mic. “Wow! You remember! Well of course you remember, because this is Dallas, Texas, baby!” So Chavo hears AEW is the place to be. When Chavo went backstage, he couldn’t believe all the talent back there. What a great time to be a wrestling fan! But with all due respect to everyone backstage, “I don’t see anybody that has as much talent as this man right here,” Andrade El Idolo! But wait! Death Triangle appears! Fans go nuts as PAC, Penta El Zero M, with Alex Abrahantes, AND Rey Fenix are here together again!

Pac gets the mic and is seething. “OI OI OI OI OI!! Mister Andrade! I don’t know who you think you are.” Last week, they heard their name come out of his mouth. “So ladies and gentlemen, for the record, let it be known that Death Triangle hides from no one.” Andrade says thanks for coming! Yes, really, he means it. But… Fenix, Penta. You guys are good. But with Andrade, you could be great! Look, listen! The fans are chanting “CERO! MIEDO!” as Andrade says, if they joined him and Chavo, La Raza, amigos, they could build an empire! Why are they with little Pac? Look at Andrade, the elite superstar! The watch, the suit, etc.

Chavo takes the mic to say that while the luchadors understand Spanish, Pac only knows English so here’s the explanation. This isn’t a dig, it’s just that this is how it goes. They’re all talented, no question. But when Chavo and Andrade look at Death Triangle’s waists… There’s no shine! There should be! So if they want to change that, start listening to Andrade. Andrade gets the mic back to ask Penta and Fenix to ask a question. “Why do you work for Pac?” Now they can work for Andrade El Idolo! Pac says he isn’t sure what planet Andrade’s on. But the Lucha Bros don’t work for Pac. Death Triangle is a team!family!brotherhood!

Fenix speaks up in Spanish to make sure Andrade understands, they are together as familia! And y’know what? They are the REAL faces of Latinos! Penta says his part, and Alex translates: “Penta says…! Why would we want to join a group with you, when you’re not even on our level?” Death Triangle rushes the ring and Andrade wants them all to tranquilo. Everyone can work for Andrade! Even Pac. Look, there’s Chavo, his butler. Refs hurry out to keep this from turning into a fight, and Andrade’s growing corporation slips away before Death Triangle can get loose. Will Death Triangle make it their business to humble El Idolo?

 

AEW shares what went down just before going on air.

The Hardy Family Office’s Angelico and Private Party came out to tell the fans why Big Money Matt wasn’t going to be in Dallas tonight, but Marko Stunt interjected. Fun Size didn’t liking how they were treating Jora Johl as a lackey and then rushed the ring! Stunt got beat up for it, but then Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus rushed out to help him! But then Christian Cage showed up to even the odds! The HFO bailed out, but now we hear from Captain Charisma!

“Four of you to take out little Marko Stunt? Y’know, after last week, after I beat Matt Hardy in the middle of that ring, I thought that’d be the end of it. Finally, the end between you and I, Matt. But I guess not.” So here’s a suggestion: Fight for the Fallen, Christian, JB & Luchasaurus VS Angelico & Private Party, and the HFO is done for good! Will Captain Charisma lead the charge in shutting down Big Money Matt’s pro-wrestling Ponzi scheme?

 

Backstage interview with The Factory.

Alex Marvez brings up QT Marshall pouring Aaron Solow’s protein shake on Schiavone’s head. Solow has another drink this week, so Marvez is wary, but he does ask if QT feels he should apologize. QT says Marvez shouldn’t be so nervous. Marvez didn’t disrespect The Factory like Schiavone did. They won’t pour anything on Marvez’s head. But yes, QT does feel an apology is in order. Next week in the ring, Schiavone can meet QT in the ring, and Schiavone will get an apology. With that, Marvez sends it back to ringside. Will QT really admit he was in the wrong?

 

Orange Cassidy VS The Blade w/ The Bunny!

After that ambush, Freshly Squeezed is feeling freshly bruised! But he’s not one to back down from a fight, will he find a way to keep from being beaten to a pulp again?

The music hits, but Cassidy doesn’t come out from the tunnel. Blade and Bunny wait, but they think this should be a win by forfeit at this rate. Wait, Cassidy slips in from the crowd! Fans fire up as Cassidy throws off the jacket, the glasses, and puts on the armband. Cassidy taps Blade on the shoulder, Blade turns around, and Cassidy takes him down! The bell rings as Cassidy fires off hands! Blade shoves him away but Cassidy comes back! Blade ducks the Orange Punch and fans fire up for “FRESHLY SQUEEZED!” Cassidy chases Blade back into the ring but Blade stomps him down! Blade gets Cassidy in a corner, the ref counts, and Blade lets off at 4.

Cassidy sits up and dodges Blade as he runs in, to trip him up and rain down rights! Blade shoves Cassidy away, things speed up, and Blade hurdles then drops. Cassidy comes back but Blade flounders! Blade says his leg is bothering him, and he does have a knee brace from previous injuries. The ref checks, Bunny does, too, but Cassidy isn’t sure if he trusts this. Bunny checks the leg for Blade, but Blade was faking after all! SHOTGUN BOOT! Fans boo as Blade shoves off with squats! Blade gets Cassidy up, suplexes, STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy gets Blade back for playing possum, and Cassidy goes up top!

Fans rally up but Blade CHOPS Cassidy at the corner! Blade throws hands, Cassidy blocks but Blade trips him up! Blade climbs, gut wrenches, and SUPER GUT WRENCH BOMBS Cassidy to the corner! Cassidy tumbles to the floor and writhes as AEW goes picture in picture.

Blade stalks Cassidy, drags him up, and whips him hard into railing! Cassidy writhes more, Bunny laughs at his pain right in his face, but the ref backs her off. Blade gets Cassidy up, and whips him back into more railing! Blade refreshes the ring count, has the camera get in tight as he brings Cassidy up again, to whip into a POST! Cassidy flies off, Blade gets a chair and stands on it to soak up the heat. The ref checks on Cassidy but he gets up. Blade puts Cassidy in the ring, kicks him around, then whips him to a corner hard! Cassidy bounces off buckles, writhes on the mat, but gets to ropes. Blade gets him up to CHOP him to a corner!

Blade whips Cassidy corner to corner hard again, and Cassidy again bounces off buckles. Blade tells fans to hush as he paces around. Blade then stands on Cassidy’s head at the ropes, and the ref counts. Blade lets off at 4, drags Cassidy up again and CHOPS him in a corner. AEW returns to single picture as Blade CHOPS Cassidy again! Blade gets Cassidy up, whips him corner to corner, and Cassidy tumbles up and out. Cassidy sees Blade coming and bumps him off buckles! And again! And then off another corner’s buckle! Cassidy climbs, fans fire up, and Cassidy CROSSBODIES! Cassidy keeps moving, tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cover, TWO!

Bunny gets on the apron to argue with the ref, but KRIS STATLANDER appears and trips her up! Statlander and Bunny argue, Blade gets out of the ring but Cassidy builds speed! Blade uses Statlander as a shield as Cassidy DIVES! The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien takes the hit! Cassidy realizes what happened, but Bunny turns him around to shout at him. Blade swings on Cassidy but Cassidy ducks it! Cassidy waistlocks and shoves Blade into Bunny! Now things are even! Cassidy then gets Blade up, but the back holds him back! Blade CLUBS Cassidy, gets him in the ring, but Cassidy rolls under, around, and tilt-o-whirls again!

But Blade blocks it and grins as he suplexes to hang Cassidy out to dry! Blade runs and LARIATS Cassidy inside out! Gut wrench for a JUMPING TOMBSTONE! Cover, TWO?!! HOW?! Blade is furious but the fans are thunderous! Blade gets Cassidy up, gut wrench, but Cassidy fights the bomb to Alabama lift! But again the back gives up! Blade KICKS Cassidy in the face, Cassidy wobbles, but he still hits BEACH BREAK!? Cover, TWO?!?!? Blade barely survives, and now Bunny is shrieking as she’s on the apron! Statlander grabs at her just as she throws the brass knuckles to Blade! The knuckles go too far, and Blade has to flounder after them!

Blade gets the knuckles on his fist, Cassidy turns around, but Cassidy ducks to ORANGE- NO! Blade ducks, winds up, but Cassidy ORANGE PUNCHES first! What a quick refill! Cover, Cassidy wins!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Bunny is furious but Cassidy doesn’t even want his hand raised? Cassidy has the brass knuckles, puts them on, and BRASS ORANGE PUNCHES Blade down!! And then he puts those in his pocket! Has Orange Cassidy made it clear to the HFO to make their money at someone else’s expense?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Alex Marvez asks about the unbelievable news of the No Disqualification match with Nick Gage. Jericho faces away from the camera as he says, “If MJF is going to bring in the most demented and violent man in the business today to face Chris Jericho, then next week, I’m going to bring in the most violent and demented version of Chris Jericho to face Nick Gage.” That’s why next Wednesday, Fight for the Fallen, in a No Rules Match, it’s Nick Gage VS… THE PAINMAKER!! Jericho has used this persona to defeat some of the best in NJPW, will he simply add another to the list?

IWGP United States Championship Texas Deathmatch: Jon Moxley VS Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake Roberts!

The Maniac and the Murderhawk Monster went wild in NJPW, but that was only the beginning. They’ve battled once before in AEW for AEW’s World Championship, but that might look like a warm-up compared to this one! And when this can only end in submission or knockout, just how far will both men go to end the other?

Moxley makes his entrance from the crowd as he loves to do, but Archer comes out from the tunnel with kendo sticks and pyro! The introductions are made, and Moxley hits Archer at the ropes! The ref rings the bell and this one fires off already! Moxley headlocks and punches but Archer hits back. Moxley headbutts, heads out of the ring and fetches those kendo sticks, and he SMACKS Archer on the back, then SMACKS him on the leg! And SMACK to the back again! Archer choke grips Mox but Mox breaks free to throw a forearm! Archer hits back and it’s a forearm brawl! Fans fire up as they go faster and faster, then Archer ROCKS Moxley!

Moxley HEADBUTTS Archer, runs, but into a DERAILER! Archer hurries after Moxley outside the ring, and CANNONBALLS off the apron! Fans are fired up as the ref keeps up with them, and Archer SMACKS Mox with a kendo stick! And SMACKS him again! The kendo stick breaks so Archer drops that. Archer runs in but Moxley sends him into railing! And then Moxley TACKLES Archer and knocks him through the railing! Fans are fired up for “A E DUB!” as they start fighting up towards the bleachers! Moxley throws hands, Archer ROCKS Mox! Mox sits on railing, Archer shoves him over! They go further up, Archer throws more forearms but Moxley hits back!

They brawl, Moxley gets the edge and sends Archer down towards ringside. Archer shakes out the cobwebs but Moxley LEAPS to KNEE Archer towards railing! Archer grabs a fan in a Hybrid2 hoodie!? And he THROWS him at Moxley! Fans go nuts as Archer drags Moxley back to ringside! Archer stalks Moxley, runs in but Moxley dodges to clothesline Archer out! Moxley runs, and DIVES into a forearm! Jake the Snake was smacking the ring steps, that must’ve been to warn Archer. Speaking of those steps, Archer gets those, moves them around, and pulls up ring mats on the floor! Archer drags Moxley over to this bare patch, scoops him, but Moxley slips off!

Moxley kicks low, DDT to the bare floor!! Moxley leaves Archer behind as the standing count begins! Much like a Last Man Standing, if Archer can’t get up before 10, he loses! Fans are thunderous as the count climbs, we’re at 5 of 10, but Jake the Snake walks over to disrupt the ref a little. Archer gets up, Jake coaches him on, and Archer gets up at 8! Archer is busted open, though, but Moxley has a FORK!? Is he Abdullah? Moxley GOES AFTER THE WOUND WITH THE FORK!!! Fans tell Moxley, “YOU SICK F***! YOU SICK F***!” Moxley just takes a bow as AEW goes picture in picture.

Archer is in a daze, Moxley sits him up to DIG the fork into the bloody wound!! Moxley lets off so Archer can bleed! Moxley gets the fans fired up as he wipes the blood off on his pants. Archer manages to sit up but Moxley gets a table! Moxley sets the table up as Archer slowly drags himself up with the ropes. Moxley then gets a second table! Moxley has both tables by the ring, Archer has a crimson mask that matches his red braids, but Moxley gets chairs! Moxley puts them in the ring, with a trash can lid on the side, and then the can itself. Archer crawls for these weapons but Moxley hurries in. Archer body shots then ROCKS Moxley over and over and over!

BUT MOXLEY HAS THE FORK!! He jabs Archer over and over with it!! Archer shoves Moxley away then KNEES him down! Archer gets Moxley up, scoops, but Moxley slips off to chop block a leg! Moxley kicks the leg, puts the trash can in the corner then grabs a chair. Moxley JAMS Archer’s leg with the chair, then gets the bad leg for a DRAGON SCREW! Moxley takes the chair, puts Archer’s leg through it, and hops up the corner! AEW returns to single picture as Moxley gets the fans fired up again, and he JUMPS to STOMP the chair!! Archer’s leg gets the nutcracker treatment and fans rally and duel as the standing count begins.

Archer is down at 5 of 10, but he refuses to give up so he fights his way up at 7 of 10 again. Moxley has the trash can lid, but Archer PUNCHES it into Moxley’s head! Both men are down and fans are loving this as the standing count is on both men. Archer and Moxley stir, “This is Awesome!” and Moxley eggs Archer on. Moxley throws hands, Archer swings but misses. Moxley hits again, Archer swings and connects. It isn’t very strong given the blood loss. Moxley JABS Archer, and JABS, and talks trash to JAB. “You ain’t s*it, Lance!” And then Moxley BITES THE WOUND!! Moxley is savage, but he runs into LARIAT!

Archer rallies on Moxley, reels him in, ripcord but Moxley dodges to waistlock and GERMAN SUPLEX! Archer is right back up!? BOOT! Archer gets Moxley up and ripcords, for the HELLACOASTER!! If only he could cover! The count climbs, Archer is up at 4 and Moxley is up at 6, to get a TRASH CAN SMASH! Archer throws the can up the ramp, sits a chair up and then gets the other. Moxley staggers to a corner, Archer sits the chairs together, face-to-face. Archer puts Moxley up top, inverted crucifix, but Moxley slips out to LOW BLOW! All legal in a Texas Deathmatch but it isn’t very sporting. Moxley sees Archer’s chairs and turns them around!

Moxley slashes his throat but Archer choke grips! CHOKE SLAM on the chair edge!! Moxley writhes and fans are electric! Moxley gets to a corner as the standing count hits 5 of 10! Moxley drags himself up at 8, and fans are fired up as Archer BOOTS him down! Archer roars, runs corner to corner, but into a LARIAT! Moxley hurries to hit PARADIGM SHIFT! Archer is down, the count begins, and Moxley paces about. Archer springs up at 3!?! And he double dirty birds Moxley! But Moxley gets the FORK!! JAB JAB JAB to the forehead!! Mox lets off, the count begins again but Moxley plans ahead. Moxley brings out A BARBED WIRE BOARD?!

Moxley uses the board of barbed wire as the cherry on top of his double table! Archer crawls over, the standing count being over, and Moxley gets him on the apron. Moxley underhooks the arms, fans anticipate disaster, but Archer has Moxley’s fork!! JAB JAB JAB to Moxley’s forehead!! Archer then choke grips, and CHOKE SLAMS Moxley through his barbed wired covered tables!!! The standing count begins, Archer watches Moxley down in the wreckage, and the count hits 10! ARCHER WINS!!

Winner: Lance Archer, by technical knockout (NEW IWGP United States Champion)

Both men raised the stakes from their previous battles, and in the end, it was Moxley who busted. But Hikuleo gets right up in the ring to stare down Archer! Archer is big but so is Hikuleo! Fans are losing their minds at this teaser, will Fight for the Fallen be just as furious as Fyter Fest?


My Thoughts:

Another great night for Dynamite and a great second night of Fyter Fest, on par with last week for sure. Opening with the Labours of Jericho was a great choice, it was a very good opener. It was a good choice for it being Sammy stopping Tully’s interference was the right move, Sammy VS Spears has of course been the plan in the background of the other Inner Circle VS Pinnacle feuds. But what a shock that AEW brought in Nick Gage given what MJF literally said about him because it’s all true. And I suppose they’re calling it “No Rules,” not just No Disqualifications, as a weird way of saying it is No Holds Barred or Extreme Rules, however you want to say, “This is going to be nuts!”

We got a good promo from Miro to hype up Dynamite: Homecoming in a couple weeks, but he didn’t name an opponent so that is probably going to be decided in the next two weeks. There are a lot of names I’ve been wanting to see from Elevation to get a shot, I’m sure it’ll be a great match no matter who is against him. Kaz VS Gallows was good but I should’ve figured Anderson would help Gallows to win that. Omega and Callis showing up to talk trash was fine, but I don’t think it really worked for Omega to suddenly struggle with the easiest wordplay in the world. But Hangman and the Dark Order coming out to take the fight to them again was very good, that 10-Man is going to be great, I have a feeling Hangman is the last man for his team to somehow win it all.

Team Taz had a decent promo to set up a segment for next week, and Brian Cage had a decent add-on to that. The Absolute Party being crashed is going to be fun, I bet All Out has the FTW Championship rematch in at least the Buy-In. We got a very good match from Darby VS Wheeler, but I think the best part was the “confrontation” between Cassidy and Sting. That match needs to happen at some point. Darby wins to prove his toughness, and Blade going after Cassidy was a good touch before their match. That match was very good, as was the “overbooking” with Statlander and Bunny. Cassidy wins and gets to show some edge using the knuckles himself, I wonder if “Serious Cassidy” is the one who gets a title finally.

Baker VS Nyla was a really good match, but I feel like it lost a lot of steam with the weird near fall where fans were adamant about the ref getting it wrong. Then from that point on, Nyla seemed a bit thrown off or groggy, that made it trickier for Britt to do things, but I figured Britt was winning anyway because of just how over she is. Britt is definitely gracing Pittsburgh with her presence, maybe for both Dynamite and Rampage’s premiere episode to make it a big week. We got a pretty good press conference promo, but Dax again recycled material. Santana’s material was strong, and that tag match for Fight for the Fallen is going to be badass.

We got a great segment with Andrade bringing CHAVO to AEW, and then establishing that this is a feud with Death Triangle. I do like that Andrade was hoping to team with them, with Pac optional, but their series of matches are going to be great, too. Then we’re also getting Cody VS Malakai at Homecoming, that is going to be very good but again, I would hope Cody lets Malakai get this win to establish him in AEW. QT’s promo about apologizing to Schiavone is interesting, I’m pretty sure this is a trick to sucker Schiavone into an even more humiliating moment, and I hope Dustin goes out to defend Schiavone because WE NEED the grudge match blow-off of Dustin VS QT, maybe even bigger than that.

Tony Khan announcing a new live event for the AEW calendar is pretty exciting. That could be any number of things as I haven’t heard any rumblings of this news anywhere, sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun. And then that main event was a metric ton of fun in the form of badass brutality! A FORK!? Holy crap! This was the best match in the Mox VS Archer rivalry, it reference all the other ones and escalated things, and I was really surprised but also happy to see Archer win. Archer has been waiting for something big for a long time, this is that. Next week is big for Hikuleo to debut in AEW in a championship match against a big name like Archer, but I feel like Archer wins to maybe take this title over to NJPW Strong or even Resurgence.

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW TNT Championship Street Fight: Scorpio Sky w/ American Top Team VS Wardlow!

The Closer is finally 100%, and he’s ready to go all out just to prove he IS the Face of TNT! But will he be able to hold onto “Genie” when there’s nothing holding the Maestro of Mayhem back? Or will Scorpio win this war?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who Mr. Brodie Lee smiles down upon in a battle for this title.

Scorpio and Wardlow circle, Scorpio fires off testing punches and kicks, but Wardlow TOSSES him to a corner! Wardlow rushes in but Scorpio dodges to fire off body shots. Wardlow choke grips Scorpio and backs him down, but Scorpio fights free. Scorpio fires off knees and a KICK, then runs, only to get run over! Fans fire up with Wardlow as he stalks Scorpio. Wardlow whips Scorpio but Scorpio reverses, only for Wardlow to block and reverse! But Scorpio LOW BLOWS right on the rebound! No disqualifications but that’s just dirty! Scorpio runs, but into a clinch! And OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

Wardlow seethes and he storms up and Scorpio to TOSS him across the way! Wardlow storms up on Scorpio in the corner to then TOSS him back the other way! Wardlow soaks up the cheers from the fans but Scorpio bails out. Wardlow takes a moment to catch his breath after Scorpio’s low blow, and then Wardlow goes out to fetch Scorpio. 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!

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 himself up the ropes, Swerve storms up but Blade throws elbows. Blade runs, but he fakes Swerve out then dodges. Swerve trips Blade to headlock, but Blade pulls hair. the ref reprimands, Blade waistlocks but Swerve tags in Keith! Keith pulls Swerve and Blade into the corner, Swerve switches to O’Conner Roll, and Keith CLOBBERS Blade!

Swerve steps in to basement SHOTGUN Blade, then Keith hauls Blade up. Keith bumps Blade off buckles, tags Swerve back in, and Swerve holds Blade in for the GRIZZLY MAGNUM! Swerve then stalks Blade as he staggers, but Blade JAWBREAKERS back! Blade runs in but Swerve TOSSES him out. Swerve goes out, Blade staggers, but Butcher is lurking. Bunny gets in the way and Swerve hesitates. Butcher CLOBBERS Keith off the apron, then runs at Swerve! Swerve holds the ropes down and Butcher takes a tumble! Swerve aims at Blade but Blade sweeps the legs! Swerve crashes down and Bunny laughs at his pain while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

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!

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?!

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?

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!

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 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 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!

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

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (7/5/22)

A BIG 8 Man main event!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Universal Studios is still Dark!

AEW Dark has eight matches for Universal Studios, and tops it off with an 8 Man Tag! Will the Dark Order outshine The Wingmen in Orlando?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Lee Moriarty VS Leon Ruffin; Moriarty wins.
  • Bear Country VS Adrian Alanis & Liam Gray; Bear Country wins.
  • A.Q.A VS Avery Breaux; AQA wins.
  • Josh Woods VS Barrett Brown; Woods wins.
  • Sonny Kiss VS Lamar Diggs; Kiss wins.
  • Aaron Solo VS Fuego Del Sol; Fuego wins.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS Dariana Bengston & Gus de la Vega; Lethal & Singh win.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS The Wingmen; The Dark Order wins.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Sonny Kiss in action again, it has been some time since they’ve been anywhere in AEW. Lee Moriarty VS Leon Ruffin is going to be a really fun match but I would think Moriarty wins. The Dark Order VS The Wingmen really is full faction against full faction. Evil Uno, Preston Vance, John Silver & Alex Reynolds are pretty much the only members left, with Stu Grayson and Alan Angels leaving AEW, and Colt Cabana avoiding AEW in favor of ROH, given his falling out with CM Punk.
