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 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?!
“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?

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!

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?

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 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.

Now Britt will have to put up or shut up yet again, can she keep hold of the gold against a hangry Nyla?

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! A family! A 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?
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

PLAY BY PLAY
Jon Moxley is here!
The Maniac came dangerously close to annihilating Lord William Regal last week given how angry he was over the Full Gear screwjob. And that anger hasn’t exactly lessened since. But as fans chant for him, he’s here tonight to say, “I grew up about 90 miles from here. When I first started, I used to wrestle here in Indianapolis all the time, down in the old Fountain Square at the Salvation Army Gym.” Fans cheer for that shoutout. “That was a long time ago. This has been a crazy ass ride. You never know what’s around the corner. But there are three constants in this world, three certainties: death; taxes; and Jon Moxley.” Fans also cheer that!
Moxley says “There is nobody that can outwork me, out hustle me, out wrestle me, out fight me, out bleed me or out sweat me! Today, nothing’s really changed. Nothing’s really changed since day one in AEW. I am at THE top of the food chain! I do what I want and I say what I want. This AEW ring belongs to me! And you can bet your ass there is not a man in that locker room, there isn’t a man in this building, there isn’t a man within 100 miles that has the balls to come out here, look me in the eyes and tell me any different.” But here comes HANGMAN! Adam Page is back and Indianapolis can’t believe it!
Hangman storms down to the ring, not yet cleared to compete but clearly not caring! And he gets right in the face with the man who concussed him in Moxley! Fans are ready for “COWBOY SH*T!” but Moxley smirks. “You sure you wanna do this, man, after what happened last time? Oh, I’m sorry. Do you not remember last time?” Hangman DECKS Moxley, proving he does! Hangman keeps after Moxley as they go outside the ring and he fires off! Moxley RAMS Hangman into railing but Hangman DECKS him again! Hangman wants after Moxley but security and referees rush out! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” and Moxley gets loose, only for Hangman to CLOBBER him!
Hangman rains down fists, Moxley gets back up, and Moxley dares Hangman to try that again. Hangman storms up and he DOES hit Moxley again! Fans are loving it but even MORE refs rush out to stop this! Fans still want to “Let Them Fight!” and Moxley breaks loose! Moxley takes a spill off the ramp, but he gets up again! They scrap, but the security and refs pile on top of them to smother this fight. Moxley goes out one tunnel, Hangman goes out the other, what will keep these two from fighting backstage!?
Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Bryan Danielson!
FTR acknowledged that they have had perhaps the best year possible as a tag team, but Dax the Ax wants to prove himself worthy against THE BEST WRESTLER in the world!

Dax ROCKS Bryan but Bryan fights back, they’re brawling right in front of the fans as AEW goes picture in picture! Dax finds the corner of the railing but Bryan is on him! They throw haymakers and CHOPS, Dax ROCKS Bryan and suplexes him up and over the railing! They crash down right in front of more fans! Indy is loving having the action right at their feet, but the ref checks both men. Dax and Bryan stir, sit up, and Dax fist bumps fans as he returns to ringside. Bryan is slower to stand, crawls his way to the ring, and Dax goes out to meet him. Dax eggs Bryan on, goes back into the ring, and Bryan slowly gets to the apron.
The count is 5 of 10 but Bryan gets in. Dax storms up to Bryan and Bryan eggs him on. Dax ROCKS Bryan, brings him around and CHOPS! And then CHOPS again!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!
The Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal is back! But this time the prize is a match with MJF for the ring, and the Diamond Ring contender can name the time and place they face him for it! Matt Hardy, Brian Cage, Ethan Page, Jungle Boy, Dalton Castle and Captain Shawn Dean are among the known participants, but who comes out on top to go after MJF’s other precious possession?
Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.
Tony Schiavone brings up next week’s special Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal.

Starks says that’s right, but he would like to make “an absolute announcement.” Starks is entering IN that battle royal! Starks is going to make a judgment call right now: Starks will WIN that battle royal! Why? Because Starks is coming for everything MJF has! The title, the diamond ring, and his spot at the top! Everything MJF has is owed to Starks as well. He is Absolute for a reason, he proves it tonight, next week and ultimate proves it at Winter is Coming! Will Ricky Starks single-handedly change the AEW landscape to close out the year?

Security rushes back in with reinforcements, but Moxley throws them aside to get at Hangman! Security and refs pry these two apart for what feels like the hundredth time already, what will it take for these two to wait for a match?
Renee Paquette holds a special sit-down interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Renee is live in Nashville with Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker and thanks them for this time. She also has the Blackpool Combat Club’s Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli here. She thanks them for being here, and thanks them all for agreeing to no physicality. Renee starts with Claudio, but then Menard speaks up! When Claudio loses to Chris Jericho next week and has no choice but to be in the JAS, “The beautiful thing about being a sports entertainer, Claudio, is you can be anything you want! You like yodeling? You can be a yodeler!” Renee has the JAS calm down, she hadn’t even asked a question.
The JAS oblige, and Renee says that at ROH Final Battle, in the main event, it will be Claudio VS Jericho for the ROH World title. What would it mean to Claudio to regain that title and bring it back to professional wrestling? It would mean a whole lot. That was his first world title anywhere. It would silence the doubting voice in his head that says he can’t win “the big one.” He needs to prove that, and vows he will prove that. Hager speaks up to just say, “I like this hat!” Then he takes out a matching bucket hat from his fanny pack, and he offers it to Claudio! Deep down, Claudio the Sports Entertainer will love the hat. They can be a great tag team again!
Claudio says he is sick of this! He is sick of the JAS, of sit-down interviews, and being on stage with microphones. He came to AEW to prove he is the best WRESTLER! He does that at Final Battle when he beats Jericho! Claudio throws his chair away but the JAS laughs like hyenas. Garcia says the BCC is falling apart! Yuta says Garcia shouldn’t talk about stuff he knows nothing about! Garcia says alright, here’s what he does know: he made the right choice staying with the JAS! Because that little combat club is falling apart! They’ll prove it next week on Dynamite by “beating up some pro-wrestling dorks!” Hager & Garcia VS Claudio & Yuta!
Yuta says he is done with the JAS, the stupid hat, the stupid nicknames, and those suspenders with a belt. What the hell are you doing, Parker? The only reason Garcia isn’t just dead to Yuta is because Yuta wants that ROH Pure Championship! So yeah, tag match challenge accepted. But at Final Battle, Garcia puts the Pure title on the line and they end this. Garcia says okay then. Yuta storms off now, will the BCC reclaim gold and honor to end their 2022?
AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS AR Fox!
Sure, Wardlow wants his belt back, but #TwoBeltsJoe is already ready to move on. Will Joe stay the Double Television Champion? Or will the newest high-flyer to go #AllElite start off with a bang?
The introductions are made, the AEW title is raised, and we see just who is The Face of TNT!
The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Fans sing “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” as the two tie up. Joe powers Fox to a corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Joe then throws a body shot, JAB, JAB, JAB, JAB, and HEAD CHOP! Fans fire up, Joe stomps Fox and drags him up. Joe DECKS Fox, then mockingly applauds. Joe brings Fox up but Fox throws hands! Joe HEADBUTTS Fox, runs, but Fox goes Matrix to duck the lariat! Fox PELES Joe and Joe tumbles out of the ring! Fans fire up as Fox builds speed and FLIES! But Joe moves aside! Only for Fox to roll through and stand back up! Joe turns around into a BOOT!
Joe gets in the ring, Fox follows and CLUBS away! Joe sweeps the legs! Fox lands on his face, Joe lands on Fox with a SENTON! Joe snarls at Fox as AEW goes picture in picture.
Joe covers, TWO! Joe sits Fox up to CHOP him to ropes, then stands him up. Joe bumps Fox off buckles, then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Joe storms up to Fox, drags him up, but Fox throws body shots! Fox runs, but Joe CLOBBERS him! Joe snarls, stalks Fox and then covers, ONE!! Fox is showing toughness and that amuses Joe. Joe drags Fox up, snapmares him and clamps on a hard neck wrench! Fox endures as Joe leans all his weight on the twist! Fox fights up as fans rally, and Fox throws body shots. Joe throws Fox down by his head! The ref reprimands, and Fox sits up, into a MULE KICK! Cover, TWO!
Now Joe is frustrated as Fox sticks around. Joe stalks Fox to ropes, drags him up, and bumps him off buckles. Joe CLUBS away on Fox’s back with big forearm shots, then CHOPS him on the back! Fox slumps down and Joe smirks as he digs his boot in. The ref count, Joe lets off, and then Joe paces around. Joe drags Fox back up, HEADBUTTS him, but Fox kicks back! Joe throws a forearm, Fox kicks, repeat, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fox runs, but Joe scoops to a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Fox barely bridges up for that, and Joe taunts him. Joe puts Fox in a corner, hoists him up top, but Fox throws forearms!
Joe CHOPS Fox back! And then climbs up after Fox, but Fox throws body shots! Joe steps back, Fox FLYING DDTs! Fans fire up and Fox MULE KICKS, BUZZSAWS, but then Joe ducks the heel kick, only to get a BASEMENT CUTTER! Fox hurries up top, 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Joe survives and shocks Fox! Fans fire up as Fox pounds the mat. Fox has some blood in his mouth but he just goes back up top. Fox leaps, but Joe moves aside. This time Fox crashes and burns! Joe runs to POUNCE Fox into the ropes! Joe hoists Fox up top, tucks him in, MUSCLE BUSTER!! Cover, Joe wins!
Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
A strong first defense, he gets both belts on his shoulders, and then he gets a mic. “Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to welcome you to a new and glorious era! For I am the One True King of Television!” But Wardlow is on the tron! “Hey, self-proclaimed King of TV. Wow, that’s almost as good as the last nickname you came up with in War Joe. Listen, I hope you enjoyed playing the role, because I’m coming for what’s mine! Cuz Joe, this ain’t your world, this is WARDLOW’S WORLD!” Wardlow has the fans chanting his name, will Joe have to watch his back from now on?
“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs continues his homecoming journey.
Still in Oakland, California, Hobbs says, “I walk along these streets… I’ve been bullied, I’ve been beaten up. It’s only made me tougher.” The guys on the street rolling dice spot him and give him space. They all wonder who that was, but know not to mess with him. Hobbs continues to narrate, “I’m going to let each and every one of you feel the pain, the hurt, the happiness. I’m taking what belongs to me.”
AEW presents a new Technique By Taz.
We review Hook’s match with Lee Moriarty in defense of the FTW Championship. Taz points out that Hook’s escape from the Border City Stretch was all about breaking wrist control and sitting out to shift and pop free. Then Hook gets the half nelson and cross choke for the Redrum. Moriarty may be a submission savant, but Hook might be a prodigy. Will the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil continue to make his father proud in defending that title?
William Regal is here!
Indianapolis boos as “this snake, this coward” (Excalibur’s words on commentary) makes his way to the ring. Moxley is no longer in the building so Regal doesn’t have to hide. He walks down the Burberry carpet and into the ring where something is on a pedestal under a cover. Regal gets a mic while fans boo more, and he says, “Ladies and gentlemen… Your new AEW World Champion… Maxwell Jacob Friedman!” MJF makes his entrance, here as promised last week. Fans are torn as MJF swaggers his way out, belt around his waist and Burberry scarf around his neck. MJF goes to the ring, mic already in hand.
MJF and Regal hug, and MJF says, “I know you people aren’t very bright, but when The Best Wrestler on God’s Green Earth is holding a microphone, you keep your hillbilly mouths shut.” Fans boo more as MJF says, “I would now like to tell you people how my and Mr. Regal’s unholy union-” Fans tell MJF to STFU and that gives him pause. “How uncouth.” But MJF finishes his thought by saying, “Not too long ago, Mr. Regal sent me an email and it was right after The Firm had attacked me, and that email reads as follows.
“Maxwell, I watched on as The Firm attacked you. It’s become very clear you’ve grown weak. I see all the potential in you to not just become a villain, but the greatest villain of our time. However, as I’ve said previously, you have much to learn. I’m willing to help you reach your true potential, but if you want to get the world title around your waist, this time you mustn’t grab the Dynamite Ring. Instead, you must grab the brass one. Yours Sincerely, Sir William Regal.” It was after that that MJF and Regal secretly met, and MJF is not afraid to admit that Regal is a genius.
MJF was more than apt to listen when Regal said to not use the diamond ring, but the brass knuckles. Regal didn’t want MJF to just beat Moxley, no no. He wanted MJF to leave Moxley with a lesson in the form of an emotional scar so that Moxley will never forget the day that he was outsmarted by MJF. “Now let’s talk about The Firm, shall we?” MJF knows everyone wants to know what he’s going to do to The Firm, “and to be honest, eh. I kinda respect The Firm. They saw a weakness in me, and like sharks smelling blood, they attacked, and I would’ve done the exact same thing.
“And let’s be fair, even if I did harbor some resentment, Mr. Regal, do I really seem like the type to chase anyone down?” Regal says no. MJF says that’d take effort. And as Indy knows oh too well, effort is for poors like all of them! See, MJF is above that. And speaking of things MJF is above, let’s talk about the belt, shall we? When MJF became our AEW World Champion, he made a promise to himself that he’d make changes around here. Out with the old, in with the new, and so looking at this belt, he wants to vomit in his mouth. And that’s not just from being in Indiana.
Fans boo more but MJF says, “It’s because it desperately needs an upgrade. This belt is tacky, it lacks class, and to make matters worse, it reminds me of all the men who held it previously. And if we’re being honest with ourselves, yeah, sure, they were all talented in their own rights, I guess. But I think we can all agree none of them are on my level. And that is specifically why this version of the title, much like all of you, is garbage.” MJF throws down Pretty Platinum! And then Regal unveils the BURBERRY STRAPPED AEW World Championship! MJF introduces to the world, the new and improved AEW World Championship, “Triple B: The Big Burberry Belt!”
Fans boo but MJF says this is now the most important, prestigious and prolific world title in all of pro-wrestling, and that’s because MJF is the one holding it! “No one, and I mean no one, deserves to be recognized as world champion except for me! Not any of your over-hyped, overrated pieces of trash you guys constantly push for. Fake tough guys like Eddie Kingston…” Fans start chanting for “Eddie! Eddie!” MJF says they can chant all they want, Eddie will NEVER be world champion. MJF calls out other fake tough guys like Ricky Starks. Starks is a fake star is what he is!
And speaking of fakes, let’s talk about the worst of the worst, the middest of the mid, fake wrestlers like Bryan Danielson! Fans boo but MJF says, “No offense, in comparison to me, Bryan Danielson couldn’t wrestle his way out of a gaddamn paper bag. No offense, Mr. Regal, you tried everything you could. Some people just can’t be helped.” MJF tells Indy to pipe down, but speaking of people who can’t be helped, here’s a message to everyone on HIS show, in HIS locker room and on HIS roster. “So long as I’m in this company, you will never know what it feels like to be on top, because I am going to be world champion for a very long time. All the way, in fact, until the bidding war of 2024!”
At that time, Triple B will be a bargaining chip to get the biggest money contract in the history of the business! MJF will make more money in a day than any of these white trash hicks in their miserable lives! “I just pray to God the right Khan foots the bill, and Lord knows I ain’t talking about Tony.” MJF grins at the camera because he’s talking about “Mah boi, jolly ol’ Saint Nick! And my other boy, The Game, Trips. And if I’m being completely transparent here, Mr. Regal, come January 1st, 2024, I don’t even know if a wrestling company wins the bidding war, because quite frankly, I am getting sick and tired of having to look at disgusting, grotesque professional wrestling fans on a weekly basis. Maybe Hollywood wins!”
MJF grins as fans boo more. But MJF isn’t deaf. He knows there is an interesting amount of fans who were over the moon for him to become champion! Okay, to those fans, fantastic. But call him “Mystic Max,” because their happiness will soon turn to resentment, because those fans are fickle! “Pretty soon, you’ll be saying stuff like, ‘I am sick of MJF! He’s so boring! He’s so repetitive! All he does is talk! He never wrestles. He’s a coward!’ There it is!” Fans chant “BORING~!” as MJF continues to predict the rants about making opponents jump through hoops. But to those people, MJF says, “Great.”
Because y’know who keeps tuning in, praying to God that someone takes Triple B off MJF? YOU! MJF says during his long and illustrious reign, Triple B will be defended very rarely, and he will wrestler very rarely, because unlike everyone else, he’s a special attraction. “In order for you discussing poors to see me defend my title, nine times outta ten, you will have to reach into your pockets for that small amount of money that you have, and buy a PPV in hopes to see someone dethrone me. Newsflash: they won’t. I am about to have a world title reign that will make Hulk Hogan, JBL and Jeff Jarrett seem short and sweet!
“I am about to have a world title reign that is gonna make that shmuck, Bruno Sammartino, roll in his shitty little grave!” Fans boo as MJF stoops to new lows in his insults. MJF says we are now in the Era of MJF, and his reign of terror has only just begun. Fans boo as he holds up Triple B, but then MJF remembers something! He knows fans are confused by all this, but hold on. MJF brings the brass knuckles out and says without these, and without Regal, none of this is possible. The fans might’ve booed when Regal came out here, but everyone still respects him, both fans and wrestlers alike. Because for 40 YEARS, Regal, has given blood, sweat, tears, and sacrificed so much to the business!
MJF gets fans to cheer Regal because Regal loves the business. So that’s why MJF wanted to say from the bottom of his heart, SUCKER PUNCH WITH THE KNUCKLES!!!! Fans boo as hard as ever as MJF walks over and squats by Regal’s prone body. “It’s funny. You said I had much to learn, and yet you’re the one who made a deal with The Devil. So allow me to leave you with the words you left me seven long years ago. ‘Will, the game has changed. MJF exclusive hires top talents and top world class athletes. When you’re of them, send me your stuff. Yours Sincerely, the World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman.'”
MJF drops the mic, brings Triple B with him, and leaves through the crowd. Bryan hurries to Regal’s side, along with the medics. Regal wanted to make the greatest villain of all time, but he have just created the worst monster of all time! Did MJF cross a line no one should ever cross?
AEW returns as Regal is loaded into an ambulance.
He has a neck brace and backboard as he is on the stretcher. Bryan is there, he’s going to ride with Regal to the hospital. Will Lord Regal be alright? Will someone avenge him by ruining all of MJF’s plans for his future?
Ricky Starks VS Ari Daivari!
Speaking of, the Absolute #1 contender plans to ruin the holidays for MJF by taking both world title AND diamond ring! Will Starks be red hot going into the battle royal? Or will Daivari Dinero already ruin Ricky’s own run?
Before the bell, Stokely Hathaway walks out to have everyone wait. He also has Ethan Page and Matt Hardy with him, and Hardy steals the spotlight by getting the fans cheering for V1 and “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” Stokely tells Hardy to get his ass to the back! Hardy smiles, but Ethan tells him to not forget that The Firm owns his ass! And in that Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal, Hardy’s gonna help Ethan win it all, because Ricky took away that #1 contendership away from him! So Ethan vows to take the battle royal from Starks. AND, Ethan is calling his shot right now!
At Winter is Coming, after MJF whoops Starks’ ass around the whole arena defending the world title successfully, Ethan will whoop MJF’s tired ass! Then Ethan will be the one with the diamond ring, and Starks will just watch and cry. IF he makes it to Winter is Coming. Daivari CLOBBERS Starks in the corner! The ref rings the bell, Daivari stomps a mudhole, then he fires off hands. Daivari whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to SPEAR! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Daivari up! Underhooks, gut wrench, ROSHAMBEAUX!! Cover, Starks wins!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall
Starks looks at Ethan and Stokely as they’re already eating their words. Will All Ego be deflated in that battle royal? Will Starks win big again to then go for BOTH of MJF’s prizes?
Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, Britt Baker & Rebel.
Tony Schiavone is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, the Doctor, and the Doctor’s Assistant and brings up last week how Britt & Hayter won big in tag team action. Britt wants Tony to keep “Doctor” in how he addresses her. And also, she shouts out the big win by her Pittsburgh Steelers right here in Indianapolis. But let’s talk about what is really concerning: The coming sit-down interview Renee has with Saraya. Hayter has a great idea! Why not a sit-down interview with THE Women’s World Champion! A little chat even. And he will, next week. Renee can sit her ass at home! It’s settled, yours truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.

The House of Black speaks.
Malakai himself says, “Before this week is done, you will have seen more of us making less of them.” The House is back from the dead, what does this mean for AEW?
Backstage interview with QT Marshall and Orange Cassidy.
Schiavone notes we all saw The Factory and Best Friends fall victim to the return of Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews. They agreed to this time to talk it out. QT wants to talk directly to Cassidy since he keeps getting interrupted. QT wants a shot at the All-Atlantic Championship. Cassidy says no problem. Oh, yeah, okay. Then this Friday on Rampage, it won’t just be a normal match! QT wants a Lumberjack match! Yeah, love it, great. See you then. QT can’t stand that, though he got what he wanted, Cassidy kept talking over him. But since he got what he wanted, will QT get the title? Or will he just get what he deserves?
The Baddies are here!
And it is a celebration for the still undefeated AEW TBS Champion! Jade Cargill is 42-0, has the physical belt back, and has Red Velvet back, though she kicked Kiera Hogan to the curb. That aside, they and Leila Grey go to the ring, Velvet and Leila in magenta to contrast with all the green and gold. The confetti cannons go off with red, while Jade has the mic to say, “Now we all know why we’re here tonight: because of me, and my big ass celebration! But before we begin, let me address something and set the record straight. I made the Baddies, I say who stays and who goes. Now you see, I got rid of the trash last week. So I’m so confused as to why you two were chilling with her this past weekend!”
Velvet shrugs, Leila rolls her eyes, but Jade says she is done playing games! Jade got her belt back from Nyla Rose at Full Gear! Understand that to stand next to Jade is a blessing. So either you two get in line, or they can step. Because they are eating on her dime, making names off of her, and this whole company is eating off of her! SHE is the brightest star the company has! Stand her next to any wrestler in the back, and every consumer knows she’s the star! No one has Jade’s face, Jade’s body, or Jade’s aura. NOBODY! Leila and Velvet seem to agree with that since they’re staying right there in the ring.
Jade then asks the fans, “So you tell me what we’re gonna do about that. And you all can play, but I put asses in seats!” Plenty of the fans agree with that. “I wrestle for bad bitches. Now cameramen, do your job and get my Baddies.” The cameras do in fact find the Indy Baddie Section as Jade continues. “I am the real deal! I am nothing but real. And like I said, I create careers. And speaking of careers, Lil’ Bow Wow is a joke! Is a total joke!” But wait, Bow Wow is on the tron! And he says, “Jadey, baby, you deserve all the flowers in the world. Congratulations on your little win. It was cute, really cute.”
But to get to business, time is money and Bow Wow is all about money. He’s done with his tour, has a lot of time on his hands, so what does that mean? “See you soon. Real, real soon.” Jade doesn’t understand what the hell is going on with Bow Wow, but she and the Baddies storm out of the ring. Who, if anyone, will ever dethrone #ThatBitch?
The Acclaimed speak.
Billy Gunn is with Max Caster & Anthony Bowens backstage, and he’s like a drill sergeant with his trainees. He asks, “Why is there a camera in our face?” Bowens answers, “Because AEW stands for Acclaimed Every Wednesday.” Billy asks, “Why do you two not have a match on Dynamite?” Caster answers, “Because Everyone Loves the Acclaimed, and no one wants to fight us, Daddy Ass.” Billy asks, “And what are you two going to do about it?” Bowens says, “I have an idea, Daddy Ass.” Then would he like to let us all know? Bowens says this Friday on Rampage, they give a tag title opportunity to the best tag team in AEW!
How can that possibly be when THEY are the best team in AEW?! Caster says Bowens meant the second best team, Daddy Ass. Sorry. Okay. Then there’s only one thing left to do: SCISSOR FINGER~!!! Who is the second best team in AEW? AKA the #1 contenders? We’ll see this Friday when Rampage returns to its regular time of 10 PM Eastern!
AEW World Trios Championships Best of 7, Match 3: Death Triangle VS The Elite!
PAC, Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M ruined the return of Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks with a bell hammer. Then they cheated the second match with another bell hammer. Will there be THREE hammers in this third match? Or can the Best Bout Machine and his boys finally get on the board?
The fans sing Carry On My Wayward Son for The Elite, and then the introductions are made. But then The Elite attack Death Triangle on the ramp! Omega is after Fenix, Matt Jackson is after Pac and Nick Jackson is after Penta! Fans fire up as the brawl goes from ramp to stage, but then also down the ramp. Indy fires up for “THE! ELITE! THE THE ELITE!” as Omega and Nick mug Fenix. Matt ROCKS Penta, the ref reprimands everyone, but Penta runs, into a back drop to the ramp! Nick kicks Fenix, runs to get a boost from Matt, the RANA sends Fenix down the ramp! Omega RAMS Pac into part to the tunnel, to hit a KOTARO KRUSHER to the stage!
The Bucks check on Omega, that elevated bulldog really hurts the tailbone and hip. Nick CLUBS away on Pac, drags him up, and Matt walks Pac with Nick down the ramp. They head for ringside, Omega walks off the pain, and the Bucks set Pac up. Omega runs down the ramp to build up speed, for a SUPERKICK from Pac!! The Lucha Brothers then somersault down the ramp, DOUBLE STUNNERS!! Death Triangle turns things around on Elite and this still isn’t even on record as AEW goes picture in picture!
Fenix CLUBS Omega, ROCKS him and they end up going around the ramp. Matt and Nick hobble, Penta and Pac keep on them. Omega and Fenix brawl just offstage in front of fans. Fenix UPPERCUTS, Penta CLUBS and KICKS Nick to send him along the pyro grate. Nick hits Penta back and TOSSES Penta off onto Fenix and Omega! Pac and Matt brawl at center stage while Nick LEAPS to AX HANDLE Penta back down! Matt KICKS Pac towards that side of the stage, reels him in, but Pac blocks the suplex. Matt keeps trying but Pac throws body shots. Matt throws those shots back, then punches away on Pac’s forehead!
Matt gets space, runs but Pac BOOTS him away! Then Pac says what the hell, and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS onto Nick, Omega and the Lucha Brothers!! Death Triangle then drags Nick and Omega up, but Matt SUPER CROSSBODIES them all down! Omega helps Matt up and the Elite drag Death Triangle up. The brawling continues, going back to the ramp and then to ringside. Omega sends Penta into railing while Nick sends Pac into the apron. Fenix whips but Matt reverses to send Fenix into barriers! Matt mocks Fenix’s pain then kicks him down! Matt then brings Fenix around to have him join the others ringside.
Dynamite returns to single picture, Brandon Cutler is vlogging this for The Elite as they set up Death Triangle. They all put one out, but the ref wants this to finally get in the ring. Omega says fine, and he puts Penta in the ring. The bell finally sounds and NOW this is a match! Then Omega kicks Penta out of the ring, the Bucks DOUBLE APRON POWERBOMB Fenix and Pac! Omega then brings Penta around, but Penta fights that bomb off to CHOP Omega! And CHOP Matt! And tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER Nick! Omega rushes back in, but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up with Penta as he shouts, “CERO! MIEDO!”
But then Penta moves, Matt WRECKS the ref with that wrecking ball dropkick!! And Alex Abrahantes sneaks a bell hammer to Penta! Penta hurries, hiding that hammer in his waistband. Penta then sets that down in a corner, and builds speed to FLY! Direct hit on The Elite! Penta puts Omega in, grabs said hammer, and fans are torn! Fenix gets in and he tells Penta NO! They’ve already done this enough for his liking! Penta tells him to shut up and just watch! But then Fenix grabs the hammer from Penta! V-TRIGGER hits Fenix!!

Omega survives again and fans are thunderous as AEW goes picture in picture.

Winners: The Elite, by pinfall (the series is now 2-1, in favor of Death Triangle)
FINALLY, The Elite score one on Death Triangle! But they’ve still got a long way to go in this Best of 7! Omega gets the mic to say, “There was never gonna be a sweep, as long as The Cleaner’s in town. We’re bringing this back, it’s gonna be a reverse sweep. And boy, this is the first time in awhile I’ve been able to close a show. So without any further adieu, I must bid you all a good bye, mwah! And good night, BANG! Now play that song again, would ya?” Fans sing Carry On again as Dynamite goes off the air. Will The Elite come back from being down two to win this in six? Or will Winter is Coming cool them off so that Death Triangle can get hot again?
Great Dynamite here to pave more of the road for Winter is Coming. For one, a very creative change to the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal since the current ringbearer is also the current AEW World Champion. I had a feeling Starks would want in on that on top of being #1 contender to the world title. Starks squashed Daivari, he really should win the battle royal so he can make Winter is Coming a Winner Takes All situation. At the same time, that does seem a shame to have Starks lose both prizes, so maybe Starks calls for a double header? He may not win the belt but he can win the ring and take MJF’s ace in the hole.
And speaking of the battle royal, I do like that Ethan wants to force Hardy to help him, but I bet Hardy finds a way to mess that up for him. Then maybe that starts things towards Hardy liberating himself and Private Party from The Firm. #HardyParty has been building up wins on Dark and Elevation, they could be Trios contenders on the other side of Elite VS Death Triangle, and that could be all the more reason The Firm will want to keep them under contract as long as possible.
Great opening segment from Moxley and the surprise return of Hangman! Of course it turns into a brawl that happens again backstage, and that will definitely be a match for Winter is Coming. And I think we will get the proper finish there we were meant to see in the title match. Amazing first match of the night in Bryan VS Dax tonight. Dax has definitely proven himself as a great wrestler, no matter what division we’re talking about. He loves being a tag guy with Cash, but maybe before calling it a day, Dax will win a midcard title. Perhaps the All-Atlantic Championship since Cassidy loves putting that thing up.
QT and Cassidy had a hilarious little promo to set up a match for Rampage, but a Lumberjack Match is just tailor made for the House of Black showing up and wrecking everyone ringside. I’m pretty sure Cassidy retains the title either way, and he’ll likely defend it against Malakai 1v1. Acclaimed have a good promo to set up a tag title match, but I don’t see FTR stepping up to them on a Rampage. It’ll probably be whoever is second on the contender’s list. And whichever that team is, they’re losing to The Acclaimed. FTR and Gunn Sons have to set up something for Final Battle, it’s what makes sense.
Speaking of other things that were set up for Final Battle and that make sense, great sit-down interview promo from JAS and BCC, especially with Claudio being fed up with the constant interviews. Hager bringing out a second purple bucket hat is hilarious, too. Hager & Garcia VS Claudio & Yuta will be a great tag match, Garcia VS Yuta will be a great Pure title match since we’ve seen it a couple times already. But I cannot be sure where the titles go. Of the two, I see Garcia losing, but then that means Claudio will be forced to sports entertain. A part of me would love seeing what happens with that, though.
The celebration for The Baddies wasn’t much of a celebration, and they didn’t even get to have the clearly red velvet cake. But Jade really amped up her arrogance saying Jade is AEW. I almost thought this was the moment she turned off Velvet and Leila for good, but guess not. And Bow Wow either has a proxy to dethrone Jade, or he is such a distraction that Jade loses. I can’t be sure who Bow Wow introduces in the first idea, while that second idea feels a bit cheap. I suppose it does keep Jade strong in her first loss ever, but Jade is so good as a character that she deserves to be beat by someone straight up so there’s no excuse.
Good match for Willow VS Anna and a very good win for Willow. But since she’s lost multiple times to Jade, she probably has to wait until Jade loses it so she can go after the new champ. And a great return for Ruby in her hometown, she and Willow can both build momentum taking the fight to TayJay. Good promo from Hayter and Britt to keep the “hate-on” for Saraya. Nice return of Technique by Taz, and I really liked the orange filter. No idea who is next for Hook, or who dethrones him, but Hook is finally facing people that challenge him, so that’s good.
Another great vignette for Hobbs. He really should be TNT Champion, but it is nice to get some real depth for his character. He’ll definitely be the next TNT Champion after Wardlow VS Joe. Joe VS Fox was a great match, too, and it’s great for Fox to be somewhere higher profile. MJF continues to be great on the mic, but he should be pissed at whoever made that belt for him. The Big Burberry Belt just looks like a Big Brown Belt because of how muted those colors ended up on the leather. But you do have to appreciate MJF has picked up the mantle of “AEW’s HHH Parody” with Cody Rhodes in WWE.
And just as things were starting to drag on, MJF turns it all around with that sucker punch to Regal! Bryan was devastated, but he’ll surely return with rage, wanting after MJF, and I wonder if Tony Khan already shoots down MJF’s “PPVs only” stipulation by making MJF face Bryan at like Holiday Bash or New Year’s Smash to see if MJF even makes it to 2023 as champion. Also, lots of people are talking about Regal going back to WWE but not going back to WWE, I don’t know which will happen, but this is of course a way to write him off for a moment and give him a great return moment to screw MJF over.
And lastly, what a great main event for the trios titles. I feel like half of the segment wasn’t even officially a match. These two teams keep busting out great stuff, and the Death Triangle story with the hammer continues. It more or less cost them tonight, but the Elite had to get on the board somehow. They take a week off from this series next week to come back at Winter is Coming, but I bet there will be a promo where Fenix argues with Penta about the hammer. This is all leading to The Elite getting the belts at the end of the series, and then Death Triangle might fall apart. I don’t really want that, the Trios Division needs trios as great as them, but if even The Dark Order can fall apart, then any trio can.
My Score: 8.8/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (11/29/22)
Newark gets Dark!
Will Newark APPRECIATE Garcia, Menard & Parker?
AEW moves on from Thanksgiving and prepares for December! Winter is Coming, but who will be primed for golden opportunities?
- Six Man Tag: The Factory VS Justin Corino, Ryan Mooney & Steve Josifi; The Factory wins.
- Zack Clayton VS Chris Wylde; Clayton wins.
- Hikaru Shida w/ Hagane Shinno VS Layla Luciano; Shida wins.
- Six Man Tag: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Tracy Williams, LSG and Jack Tomlinson; The JAS wins.
- Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tony Deppen; Cage wins.
- Angelico VS Hagane Shinno; Angelico wins.
- Emi Sakura w/ Baliyan Akki VS Tiara James; Sakura wins.
- Six Man Tag: Hardy Party VS The Wingmen; Hardy Party wins.
Hikaru Shida bringing along Hagane Shinno (formerly known as Madoka) is interesting. More Japanese promotions seem to be willing to let talent work with AEW, and that of course helps AEW get recognition internationally, and helps those promotions get recognition in the USA. Shinno will definitely get a win off Angelico, but AEW’s already such a full roster, who knows if Shinno will see any TV time.
Good to see the Wingmen together again, even if it’s to lose to Hardy Party. But even the Trios Division needs its lower midcard, and that is where The Wingmen will be. Matt Hardy & Private Party might end up becoming The Firm’s Trios Championship contenders if they keep building up wins on AEW YouTube. They could give whoever comes out of the Best of 7 Series a great match, and we could see a lot of overbooked, “internal conflict” of whether Hardy Party is Face or Heel, same as we’re seeing with Death Triangle always resorting to the hammer.
UPDATE: Welp, didn’t think Angelico would win but he did. I guess not ever new star that comes into AEW can just get a free win.
