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

There’s a medical emergency backstage!

Freshly Squeezed is still a champion, as he retained the now AEW International Championship in Canada. But now, a familiar foe is rearing his Superbad head once again. Kip Sabian is bringing Butcher & Blade with him to go after Cassidy while his Best Friends are down and out. But will Cassidy’s new pals be more than enough to turn back the Superbad Squad?

A huge win for the unlikeliest of trios, and Cassidy adorns Sting with the sunglasses! As for Darby, he is looking at the Double or Nothing banner. The Relentless One wants at MJF and the gold, will he be living it up in Las Vegas?

 

AEW shares backstage footage from last week.

After having his “Re-Bar-Mitzvah” interrupted by Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, it was obvious Maxwell Jacob Friedman was mad. He curses up a storm, then says he is the world champion! But Darby Allin says the world title means much more than money and fame. It is him being him. And Jack Perry, for himself, his family, and everyone who supported him all this time, he is going to become champion on his own. Sammy says that the world title is his destiny! He said so since episode ONE of Dynamite that he is going to be world champion. But MJF says that’s not how it works! You don’t waltz up to the champ and call your shot, you EARN it!

MJF has beaten Darby, Sammy and JB once each in 1v1 competition in their AEW careers, and he tells them they have to become #1 contender. Good luck trying, because all three of them SUCK! Sammy says he’ll win as many matches as it takes to get that belt off MJF. JB says that you can check the record books. He’s already won more matches than any of them. Darby says he’s beaten Sammy and he’s beaten JB, so he will stop at nothing to make sure that MJF is no longer champion. Who of these three Young Pillars of AEW will be THE one that challenges MJF at Double or Nothing?

 

AEW takes a closer look at tonight’s main event dream match.

Excalibur narrates that, “In 2021, there was no one hotter in professional wrestling than Kenny Omega. Known as ‘The Belt Collector,’ Omega won championships around the world, including in Mexico, where he won the AAA Mega Championship. At the same time, El Hijo del Vikingo was quickly establishing himself as one of the premier luchadors in all of Mexico. A match was made for December 2021: Vikingo, Omega, for the first time ever for the AAA Mega Championship. Unfortunately, Omega’s injuries at Full Gear were so severe, they required surgery, keeping him out of action for nearly a year.

“Now, with Omega back at 100%, the dream match is on for tonight. Kenny Omega, El Hijo del Vikingo, live!” Who will come out as truly the best today?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Gunns VS Top Flight!

They may not be the Young Bucks, the Lucha Brothers or the Hardy Boyz, but Austin & Colten are the brother tag team reigning over AEW. But will they soon find out they are not nearly as good as they think they are? Or will the Gunns cause the Coldest Tag Team in the Game to melt down?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who is really the better brother duo!

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Dante, and Independence taunts the “ASS~ BOYS!” Austin tunes that out, knuckle locks with Dante, and then he CHOPS! Austin goes up and up, but then says no no no. Austin hops down, swings on Dante, but misses! Dante knuckle locks and CHOPS, then he goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Dante kips up and fans fire up! Austin tags Colten, but Dante arm-drags Colten down! Tag to Darius, the Martins double whip and speed things up, to then DROPKICK Colten down! Austin runs in, but into a DROPKICK! The Gunns regroup, but the Martins double clothesline them up and out!

Fans fire up as Dante says they’re getting those belts. The “ASS~ BOYS!” regroup and Colten slides back in. Tag to Austin, he and Dante circle again, and Austin gets around to shove Dante to ropes. Dante BLASTS Colten before the cheap shot! Dante then goes up and over Austin, only for Austin to pull hair! The ref reprimands, but misses Colten HOTSHOT Dante down! Fans boo as Austin stomps and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Austin whips Dante out of the ring, then taunts Darius to distract the ref. Colten stomps away on Dante! Colten puts Dante in before anyone notices, and Austin bumps Dante off buckles. Tag to Colten, he stomps Dante, but lets off as the ref reprimands. Colten stomps some more, he and Austin taunt Independence and Darius, then Colten drags Dante up. Colten DECKS Dante, then mocks the fans. Colten ROCKS Dante, ROCKS him again, then suplexes. Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martin brothers, drags Dante over and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Austin, he stomps Dante now, then digs his boots in.

The ref reprimands but Austin mocks the fans rallying for Dante. Austin lets off and Colten CHOKES Dante! Colten lets off Dante before he gets caught, and Austin tags Colten in. Colten drags Dante up, whips him to ropes, and the Gunns body shot, knee lift and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martins again, drags Dante up and whips him to the corner. Colten runs in but Dante dodges the splash! Austin tags in and hurries to stop Dante. Austin shoves Dante down, but Dante fakes Austin out to go under! Austin still grabs a leg, tags Colten back in, and the Gunns double back suplex! But Dante lands on his feet!

Dynamite returns to single picture, Dante goes over Austin, over Colten, and tags in Darius! Darius rallies on the Gunns and fans fire up! Darius hits an atomic drop on Austin, then LARIATS Colten! Mule kick for Austin, and Darius whips him at Colten. Austin reverses but Darius uses that to UPPERCUT Colten! Austin runs back in, but is sent into Colten! Darius uses Austin to get up and ENZIGURI Colten! Darius then GERMAN SUPLEXES Austin, and STANDING SPANISH FLIES Colten! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Darius drags Colten up.

Dante kicks Colten away, Darius DIVES onto Colten to hit him into railing! Dante GAMANGIRIS Austin, goes up and up and NOSEDIVES!! Cover, Colten breaks it!! Fans boo but Colten was within the rules. Wait, is that THE KINGDOM!? Mike Bennett & Matt Taven are mugging Darius over their ROH losses! But Dante FLIES out onto them! Direct hit and fans fire up! Dante hurries back up, springboards again, but Austin gets under!

Colten gets in, Dante runs into a 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, the Gunns win!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Fans boo that the Gunns win, but Darius is pissed at The Kingdom! Darius chases off Mike & Matt, will Top Flight get revenge in ROH? As for the Gunns, they hear FTR coming! Fans fire up again as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler step out on stage with mics in their hands! Colten gets a mic to have the FTR music stop. Colten says no one wants to hear that song and no one wants to see FTR. Fans boo because they disagree. FTR says they’re not here to fight. They’re here to talk business. Well, no one wants to hear you talk! The Gunns don’t like or respect FTR. And guess what? FTR are LOSERS! They lost three sets of belts, and lost to the Gunns!

There is nothing FTR can say or offer them to get a rematch. NOTHING! Nothing? So like, if they said they’ll never challenge the Gunns again for those titles should they lose- NO! Do you not hear what Austin is saying, “you hillbillies? NOTHING! There’s NOTHING! What do you have to offer?! NOTHING!!” Then if the Gunns wanna prove their first win wasn’t a fluke, should they win against FTR again, FTR will never tag together in AEW again. Oh, the break up? So heartbreaking! LOOK AT HIS FACE! NOTHING!! Okay, okay. Dax says if FTR can’t beat the Gunns to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, FTR will just quit AEW.

Fans boo, but it seems that got through to the Gunns. If the Gunns beat FTR again, FTR leaves AEW forever? Yes, that’s what Dax said. Well, in that case, deal! The Gunns and FTR shake on it, but then Gunns literally spin in FTR’s faces! The Gunns run for it, but the match is coming either way. Will the “ASS~ BOYS!” get their asses kicked? Or will they be the team that banishes FTR from AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill, Leila Grey & Mark Sterling.

Renee Paquette is with the AEW TBS Champion, her Last Baddie Standing and her legal representation. Renee says that Taya Valkyrie is All Elite now, and she has her eye on the TBS title. What is Jade’s reaction to that? “Renee, cut the sh*t. We had this Taya girl come in and interrupt my moment to answer an open challenge that was already closed, baby girl. And then, had the audacity to use my finisher. Mark, tie this up.” Sterling has a document, it is a Cease & Desist order. This will be sent to Taya Valkyrie, telling Taya that she is no longer allowed to use the chicken wing facebuster, which is also Jade’s move, as her finisher.

Leila says that she should deliver this document to Taya personally, this Saturday on Rampage. Because she has a few words of her own for Taya. So that’s an official challenge? Yes. Welcome to #ThatBitchShow. Will La Wera Loca have a jaded response to this frivolous lawsuit?

 

No Disqualifications: Hook VS Stokely Hathaway!

An injured arm turned into a suspension turned into a settlement turned into a high stakes bet that The Firm lost, and now it has resulted in this match. And though Ethan Page, Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy, Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey see Stokely off, they can’t stay per the stipulations of the bet. As the introduction says, “He’s not as large as the men he represents, he has the heart of a lion and the wisdom of an owl.” But will any of that help him defeat The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?

As Hook makes his entrance, Stokely grabs the mic to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa! I’ve got some breaking news! I spoke to Dr. Simpson (he means Sampson) earlier, and he said I am not medically cleared to compete. I know, I know. I wanted to so bad. And I would also, what a coinky-dink, announce that I am retiring.” What? Stokely thanks all 12 of his fands, God bless! Justin, here, doctor’s note. Make it official. Justin takes the note, and it reads, “He is SICK.” Justin says that with all due respect, that’s a receipt for Wingstop. The ref RIPS the receipt! And the bell rings! Fans fire up and Hook is ready, so Stokely bails!

Stokely runs around the ring, out to the crowd, but Hook pursues! Fans fire up as Hook chases Stokely down, drags him back, CLUBS him, then brings him over to KNEE and TOSS! Stokely ends up at ringside again and fans are thunderous! Hook stalks Stokely, Stokely runs in to UPPERCUT, but Stokely bounces off of Hook! Stokely scurries away, gets back up, and runs in, but into a leg capture! EL CAMINO to the floor! Fans fire up as Hook drags Stokely up, puts him in the ring, and then looks under the ring. Fans fire up more, because here comes a SPARE GUARD RAIL! Hook puts that in the ring while the Firm can only watch.

Hardy tries to calm the group down, Stokely can take care of himself with things getting “hardcore.” Ethan says no he can’t, they didn’t practice any of the hardcore stuff! Stokely bails out again but Hook puts the railing in a corner. Hook drags Stokely up but Stokely BLASTS Hook with the fire extinguisher! Fans boo but Stokely gets a chair! Stokely smacks the steps a couple times, he says, “I’m not a killer, but don’t push me! That’s Tupac.” Stokely hurries in, fans rally up, and Stokely swings, but Hook blocks! Hook BOOTS Stokely, then SMACKS him on the back! And again! And again! And again!

Hook throws the chair aside, Stokely is barely moving! But Hook drags Stokely up to EL CAMINO onto the railing! The railing BENDS! Hook drags Stokely off the railing, covers, but then pulls him up at TWO! Hook wants REDRUM!!! Stokely is OUT, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission

The FTW Champion could’ve ended it sooner, but he chose to teach Stokely a lesson: Do not get on Hook’s bad side. Hardy says Ethan must avenge Stokely! Ethan can beat Hook! Hardy is gonna get a match made right now! All Ego is ready, but will he be ready when they #SendHook?

 

Adam Cole is here!

Fans fire up as the Undisputed One heads to the ring. Naturally, everyone joins in on the “BOOM!” and “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” Cole gets the mic and says, “Wow. Hey, hey, I think I know the answer to this, but who’s ready for Storytime with Adam Cole, baybay?” Everyone cheers! Cole continues with, “Seven days. We are just seven days away from me making my in-ring return here in AEW. And listen, I know I’ve talked a ton about my struggles and what I went through, but as far as how I’m feeling right now? Guys, I feel freaking great. I have never been more ready, never been more prepared, to get back in this ring, doing what I love, and that is wrestle for AEW.”

Fans are fired up, and Cole knows everyone has questions. “The biggest one being: Who is my opponent going to be on March 29th?” Fans echo, “Who? Who? Who?” Cole starts to speak, but here comes Daniel Garcia! Fans boo as Red Death has the mic to say, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Who’s ready for Storytime with Daniel Garcia, baybay?” Garcia knows Cole’s been gone awhile, so here’s an update on a few things. Fans tell Garcia to STFU already but Garcia says since Cole’s been gone, Garcia’s become a real veteran in AEW. All the boys in the back respect him so much that he is a locker room leader!

Fans boo more but Garcia says as locker room leader, it is his duty to come out here to not only welcome Cole back, but to put him in his place, too. Garcia says Cole may not remember, but here’s an update on what Garcia’s been doing the last nine months while Cole was home, “playing stupid video games on Twitch.” Cole smirks but allows it. Brody King: beat him! Ricky Starks: beat him! Bryan Danielson: Garcia beat him, too. Garcia’s main-evented more AEW programming over the past year than anyone else on the roster! Garcia is the lifeblood that pumps through this company. And he’s to respect Cole? To welcome Cole back? Where’s Garcia’s warm welcome?

Where is Garcia’s respect when he’s been here, been doing this, and proved himself as one of the best pro-wrest- Oops. Freudian slip there? Garcia corrects himself, “Sports entertainers on the planet today!” That’s what Garcia is! So what makes Cole so special? “What makes me special? When they ring the freakin’ bell, that’s what makes me special! That’s what makes m e special.” Cole admits he likes Garcia. Garcia is really, really good. And some day, he could be leading the charge in AEW. The problem is the company he keeps.

“The Jericho Appreciation Society, they’ve done a great job of giving you this false sense of security. This overconfidence, which sometimes is good, and sometimes is bad. But let me remind you, even me not wrestling for nine months, I am still Adam Cole Baybay. I am a multi-time world champion. I have traveled the globe, fought and beat some of the very best! As a matter of fact, while I was sitting at home for nine months, I was wondering if I’d ever get the chance to wrestle again, hoping, praying, willing to do anything for a second chance. And looks like I found that second chance.”

Fans fire up and Cole says if Garcia is crazy enough to want the match, then dammit, he’s on! Adam Cole VS Daniel Garcia, first-time-ever, next week on Dynamite! But Cole will remind Garcia of something: “This is not just my return match; this is a statement. It’s a statement to the entire locker room that one of the best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet is BACK, baybay.” Fans are fired up for “ADAM COLE! ADAM COLE!” Cole hopes Garcia realizes what he’ sin for. Because Cole promises next week will be a great night. A great night for Cole, for the fans, but for Garcia… Not so much. “See you next week, Garcia. BOOM.”

Cole is ready, Garcia is ready, but will the Dragonslayer stay a great sports enner-tay-ners? Or will the pro-wrestler in him rise to the surface against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers alive today?

 

Alex Marvez is outside The Elite’s locker room.

Marvez can hear a conversation going on inside, and he steps inside. Callis and Omega are talking, and Callis wants Marvez to hold on. What is Omega’s concern here? Omega’s concern is that his best friends left in an ambulance! He should’ve gone with them! Callis says he sent Cutler and Nakazawa with them. Omega has a match tonight! Hear Callis out. He’s a glass half full kind of guy. Injuries happen, but hear him out. The Bucks going to the hospital might’ve been the best thing for Omega and Callis. It allows for focus! Omega is in a singles match, the God of Pro-Wrestling is back! “Those kids will be fine in a few months.”

Callis now has Marvez join in. “Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo is gonna blow the roof off! The God of Pro-Wrestling is BACK, and it starts tonight on Dynamite! Now get out.” Marvez throws this back to ringside, but is Callis only thinking of his benefit, not Kenny’s?

 

Jon Moxley w/ The Blackpool Combat Club VS Stu Grayson w/ The Dark Order!

The Maniac, along with Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, have torn into the Dark Order from Silver to Reynolds to Evil Uno. They did all that to anger Hangman Page, but they’ve also angered #PlayerTwo! Moxley may be #ForgedByCombat, but will he survive someone born and bred for combat?

The bell rings and Stu RAMS Moxley into a corner! Fans fire up as Stu fires off on Moxley but lets off as the ref counts. Moxley turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Moxley pie faces Stu, but Stu turns things around to CHOP back! Stu stalks Moxley to another corner, KNEES him and CLUBS him, then stalks him to a third corner. Moxley kicks low, ROCKS Stu with a forearm, then another, then digs his boots in. The ref counts, Moxley steps off at 4, then Moxley drags Stu up to headlock takeover. Stu keeps his shoulders up, the Dark Order coaches him up but Moxley gets a knuckle lock cover. TWO as Stu gets his left arm up.

Moxley pushes the hand down, covers, TWO as Stu gets the right arm up. Moxley pushes that arm down again, covers, ONE as Stu gets his left arm back up. Stu fights to his feet but Moxley kicks low.

Cover, TWO!! Stu is still in this, but Moxley has the knuckle locks back. Dynamite returns to single picture as Moxley rains down the DRAGON STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Stu hangs tough again, but Moxley just taunts him.

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The Dark Order hurry into the ring and Moxley backs off, there won’t be any extracurriculars here. But will the Dark Order ever get payback on the mean SOBs in the BCC?

 

Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

Renee says she can feel the frustration coming off The Absolute. The back ‘n’ forth with him and Juice Robinson, where do they stand? You tell him! Starks is “sick and tired of talking back and forth. No action, all talk.” Starks doesn’t wanna stand around, take time off his vacation, just to say Juice, he doesn’t like that you attacked him from behind. That’s cool and all, but whatever! How about this, though? Saturday Night Rampage, Starks is done talking. If Juice wants to face him man to man, then he can find Starks on Rampage! If not, just stop! Starks is over it, he is so sick of it! This is the craziest thing he’s been a part of his whole life!

Starks is issuing the open challenge to Juice. If Juice accepts it or not, is a man or not, Starks doesn’t give a damn anymore. The Absolute will be waiting, but will the Booster oblige?

 

AEW presents an all-new episode of QTV!

Toni Storm w/ The Outcasts VS Skye Blue!

The Lightning From Down Under has been striking down “spoiled rookies” again and again, but in the Dark. Will she do so again in the spotlight of Dynamite? Or will Skye roll the Storm away?

The bell rings and Storm BLASTS Skye with a forearm! Then she stomps a mudhole into Skye in the corner! The ref counts, Storm lets off but she grins and soaks up the heat.

Storm CLOBBERS Skye from behind while the ring count climbs. Storm refreshes the ring count, Saraya shouts at Skye, and Storm CHOPS Skye again. Storm stalks Skye around the way as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Storm drags Skye around to snap suplex her to the floor! Storm flexes, perhaps taunting Jamie Hayter wherever she’s watching this from, and then she goes back for Skye. Storm puts Skye in the ring, flexes more, then drags Skye up. Storm whips Skye to ropes, BOOTS her down, covers, ONE! Cover again, TWO! Another cover, TWO!!

Skye runs in, only for Storm to spin her around! Storm uses the ropes, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and fans fire up! Saraya is furious but the ref says the count was fair. Skye goes to a corner but Storm says kiss this. SWEET HIP- NO, Skye picks the ankle! Skye KNEES Storm, runs, avoids Soho’s swipe, and she hits CODE BLUE!! But Soho is still distracting the ref!!

Stu is all alone as Moxley chokes him out, then SMACKS him off a trunk! The BCC give Stu the icepack back then leave, what will Hangman & the Dark Order have to say about this?

 

Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo!

The AAA Mega Championship match that was meant to happen in December of 2021 was denied because of injury and misfortune. But now we are all fortunate enough to have this match happen here! “HE was the longest reigning Mega Champion at 765 days, 292 days more than El Hijo del Vikingo. HE never lost that title. HE is undefeated in singles matches in Mexico and also on Dynamite. Many people say HE is also undefeated at life. HE is often complimented on his accomplishments, matches, chiseled physique and hair, yet he is personally proud of his win-loss record in Independence, Missouri, which is better than his record of 1-1 in… NOOOORTH CAROLINA~!

“He arrives tonight after his 833 mile journey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Weighing 224 pounds, HE is…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The fans go wild for the Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and Don Callis’ God of Pro-Wrestling, but will Omega prove he is better than the Mega Champion?

But as Omega makes his way down the ramp, El Hijo del Vikingo DIVES onto him! Fans fire up, EHDV throws off his cape, then he runs again, to FLY! Direct hit again and Independence is thunderous!

Omega hits buckles, then EHDV ENZIGURIS! And GAMANGIRIS! EHDV climbs up, and jumps to IMPOLODER DRAGONRANA! Omega goes flying, then staggers up into the SCREW HIGH KICK! Omega’s on the ropes, EHDV runs to DOUBLE KNEE him through the ropes! Omega falls to the floor, EHDV refreshes the count, and fans say “This is Awesome!” EHDV SHOOTING STAR PRESSES to the floor! A bit double-edged, but fans lose their minds! Callis protests, the ring count climbs, but EHDV puts Omega in the ring. EHDV aims, slingshots and then springboards to 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!!

Omega goes to a corner, EHDV runs in to GAMANGIRI again! Omega staggers away, EHDV pursues but Omega CHOPS! And CHOPS again! EHDV falls over but Omega stalks him to a corner.

Omega drags EHDV back up fast, to fisherman BUSTER! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough and Omega is frustrated but the fans are loving this.

Omega CLUBS EHDV, and whips him hard into barriers! EHDV falls in a heap, but Omega goes looking under the ring. Omega brings out a TABLE! Fans fire up for that, and Omega stands that table up near the ring. The ref reprimands, this isn’t a Tables match or anything like that. But fans chant, “WE WANT TABLES!” as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Dynamite returns, the fans boo and the ref counts, but Omega lets off at 4 again. Omega ROCKS EHDV again, JABS him, then whips him to ropes. EHDV ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! Omega goes to the apron, fans fire up as EHDV pursues! EHDV ROCKS Omega, but Omega tomahawk chops back! EHDV CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS! EHDV CHOPS back, so Omega BOOTS him!

They hope these two “FIGHT FOREVER!” but it has to end somehow! EHDV throws a forearm, a SOBAT, and then he runs to springboard, into a POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB! Roll through and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!!!

Omega is furious as EHDV survives! Omega slashes his throat, drags EHDV up, and he full nelsons for a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega snarls, he puts EHDV on the ropes and takes aim. BANG and V-TRIGGER!! But that’s not the end of it! Omega drags EHDV up, deadweight as he is, and Electric Chair Lifts! But EHDV throws down fists! EHDV hops down, UPPERCUTS, then goes up and up to FLYING POISON-RANA!!! Omega tumbles to the apron, and EHDV crawls over to push him onto the table! EHDV builds speed while fans fire up, and he goes up to ESCALARA 630 SENTON through the table!!!!

Independence is volcanic for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Callis is freaking out! Both men are down in the wreckage as the ring count starts. EHDV crawls away at 3 of 10, Omega finally stirs at 4. Both men drag themselves up at 6, stand at “OCHO!” And both men slide in at 9! EHDV covers, TWO!!! Omega is still in this and EHDV is beside himself!

Cover, OMEGA WINS!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

This was a dream match the moment it was made, but this became an all-time classic by the end! Tony Schiavone joins Callis and Omega in the ring to say this was an incredible match. Omega is back in singles competition, and that was one for the ages! Omega thanks Schiavone for that. The more time goes by, the more he wonders if he can still do this kind of stuff for the fans. Wait, wait! THE BCC JUMPS OMEGA!! Moxley, Claudio & Yuta all mug Omega, and fans boo while Callis can only shout at the ref to stop this! The BCC stand Omega up so they can throw body shots and haymakers!

Fans continue to boo, but wait! Sirens? An ambulance has returned? For who? Wait, HANGMAN is driving it!! The Cowboy has a 2×4, with nails in it! Fans are going nuts for “COWBOY SH*T!” while the BCC stomp away on Omega. But here comes Hangman, wood in hand! The BCC decide to bail! Callis checks on Omega but the damage has been done. Hangman wants Moxley to get his ass back in here, but he stays back. Callis tries to calm Hangman down, but he almost gets 2×4 to the face! Callis keeps pulling at Hangman’s arm to hold him back, but Hangman shakes free and Callis falls right down! Omega comes to, and misunderstands why Callis is down!

Callis blames Hangman but Hangman says he didn’t do anything to Don! Omega and Hangman argue, Callis cowers behind Omega, and Omega takes Callis’ side. Fans boo, but is this just Callis keeping Omega all to himself?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite, but it already feels like they’re gonna keep things going until Double or Nothing, no big thing for April. We got a great promo out of the Four Young Pillars, and MJF is making the other three run the #1 contender race like he did Bryan Danielson from now until, I dunno, probably May 3rd so that May can focus on building MJF VS his challenger. Hard to say who it’ll be, but Darby’s off to a good start with that great Six Man Tag. Darby, Sting and Cassidy made an eclectic but great combination, especially with Sting borrowing some Freshly Squeezed tactics. And Cassidy’s International Championship card is open to just about anyone at this point.

Really good tag title match, but I should’ve figured shenanigans would help The Gunns retain. The Kingdom and Top Flight are solidly ROH Tag title contenders with #ReachForTheSky needing teams. Plus, The Gunns’ real story is with FTR, who came back to have a really good promo with them. Gunns VS FTR, Titles VS AEW contracts could honestly go either way. There’s a lot of talk out there of FTR going back to WWE since it’s under HHH right now, so this move could be how FTR exits AEW, but this could also be what guarantees FTR staying. Either way, this is going to be some really big stuff for the titles.

Good promo from Jade and her group, and you do have to appreciate Sterling’s gimmick of bringing about frivolous lawsuits on behalf of people to poke fun at wrestling tropes. The security guards finally got justice, even though they also got crushed by Wardlow, and now finishers that are exactly the same but with different names are being questioned. Pretty sure Leila loses the match and Taya tears up that document, though. Then it’ll be about who hits the chicken wing facebuster first to win that title. Jade has done an amazing job being an undefeated inaugural TBS Champion, but now is the time to move on to someone else so Jade can move on to the top title.

Great segment out of Hook, Stokely and The Firm. Great show from Stokely with trying to weasel out of this, then trying to run away from this, but of course he gets thrown around. Awesome use of spare guard railing, though. I figured Hook VS Ethan was going to be how this wraps up, can’t wait to see how that goes. And I appreciate Starks getting a little meta on the bad pacing of feuds. Starks VS Juice for Rampage, if it happens, will be great stuff, and maybe shenanigans helps Juice win to keep this going. Though, I feel like Starks and Juice could each be doing something better than spinning their wheels with each other. Give me Starks VS Hobbs and Orange VS Juice for those respective titles.

Speaking of which, only the second QTV segment and I’m just done with it. But they did point out the weird logic of Penta not being out there with Fenix last week. Penta VS Hobbs will probably go the same as Fenix VS Hobbs did, and Wardlow will come back for revenge. Also, another wrestling trope that needs poking at: Solo confessed to illegal activities but he won’t get investigated or arrested because it’s wrestling. If Sterling were a Face lawyer, he’d be right on Solo’s ass. But maybe Wardlow beats the crap out of Solo as his punishment, then he gets his shot at Hobbs at Double or Nothing to put this story to rest.

Great promo from Cole and Garcia, and I appreciate they had Garcia have that slip of the tongue. Garcia is of course enjoying the fun side of being a sports entertainer, showing off his personality and just doing whatever shenanigans he wants, but he also clearly enjoys the pro-wrestling stuff of just fighting. Garcia VS Cole is going to be awesome stuff, but Garcia and the JAS also have their story with the House of Black so who knows how the finish goes. Great match out of Storm VS Skye, and Skye looked great even in defeat. Another inconsistency in wrestling logic: Riho & Willow should’ve been ringside to start because they know The Outcasts will be up to no good. But I suppose that does give Riho & Willow their moment of heroism in running the Outcasts off.

I bring up that inconsistency in logic because that match was after Moxley VS Grayson, where both men had their allies ringside. The men can think to bring their boys but the women’s division can’t think to bring their friends along, when we’ve also always seen Britt have Rebel and/or Hayter and vice-versa? Anyway, great stuff out of Moxley VS Grayson, and Grayson also looked awesome even in defeat. The BCC apparently went after everyone Hangman considers a friend, as the Bucks were taken out off-camera by them, and then the BCC jump Grayson.

And then, for being a non-title TV main event, Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo went above and beyond anything I would’ve expected. There were some scary moments, like that Super Steiner counter to the powerbomb. But then again, it wouldn’t feel like an AAA match if there wasn’t some risk like that. BCC jumping Omega after he wins was a good way to keep the Elite reunion story going, but now there’s the new wrinkle of Don Callis wanting Omega to stay a singles star. To be fair, this is very much like the story of Callis, Omega and The Elite when AEW first got started. Callis wants Omega to return to that Omega, and he throws Hangman under the bus.

Another pro-wrestling logic thing is that no one watches the show back when it’s done, unless it helps the story. And I would hope Omega does that here to see what really happened as opposed to just trusting Callis and distrusting Omega. Or if not Omega, the Bucks can. The Bucks will have seen it on TV at the hospital (kayfabe) and The Bucks will tell Omega that Hangman didn’t hit Callis. Callis is also trying to recruit Konosuke, so it’d be great if Callis only comes out of this with one client. If Omega realizes not to trust Callis over The Elite, then Callis and Konosuke can stick together. If Omega still keeps Callis around, Konosuke can reject Callis to stay his own man.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/21/23)

Toni Storm gets Dark!

Published

AEW Dark is on #ToniTime!

The Outcasts have drawn a line in the AEW Women’s Division, and are daring everyone else to cross it! Will Toni Storm strike down another “entitled rookie?”

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Juice Robinson VS Leon Ruffin; Juice wins.
  • Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey; Leila wins.
  • The Iron Savages VS The Wingmen; The Iron Savages win.
  • The Renegades VS Avery Breaux & Mafiosa; The Renegades win.
  • Toni Storm VS Billie Starkz; Storm wins.

QUICK NOTES

Another surprisingly short line-up for Dark, with a couple matches that could go either way. The Iron Savages, formerly Bear Country, and the Wingmen will be a good one, but I’m leaning towards Bronson & Boulder winning that. Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey, former Baddie taking on Jade’s last sidekick standing, could also go either way, but I’m leaning towards Kiera. But it’ll be good to see Robyn & Charlette Renegade get a win here to build that unofficial Women’s Tag Division AEW has.
