PLAY BY PLAY

The commentary team is pumped up!

Excalibur is with Mark Henry, Taz and Le Champion, Chris Jericho, and they’re ready to call all the action of this very first, very stacked AEW Rampage premiere!

 

Impact World Championship: Kenny Omega VS Christian Cage!

The Best Bout Machine becoming the Belt Collector has come back to haunt him! Captain Charisma is Omega’s challenger for the AEW World Championship at All Out, but can Christian #OutWorkOmega and take the unified Impact/TNA championships and make that match Champion VS Champion?

The introductions are made, the two title belts from Impact are raised, and we see if Christian can beat Omega at least this once!

Pittsburgh is already fired up for this historic opener for “A E DUB!” Rampage! Callis stays ringside rather than go to commentary as Omega and Christian slowly circle. They approach, talk some trash, Pitt is so rowdy it’s hard to tell what anyone is chanting, and Omega tries a little intimidation step. It doesn’t work on Christian, the two circle and tie up. They go around and Omega puts Christian in a corner but Christian turns it around. Christian lets off but he uses the “step” on Omega. Omega stays back, the two reset, and the fans are still fired up. Christian waistlocks, headlocks, but Omega pulls hair. Christian cranks the headlock and grinds Omega down.

The dueling become smore clear from the fans as Omega powers out, and as Christian runs Omega over! Omega sits up in a huff then stands, and Christian mocks the finger gun! Fans go nuts when he makes it a dirty bird! Christian circles with Omega again and they feel out the knuckle lock. Omega kicks low, CHOPS, then CLUBS Christian down. And then CLUBS him with double ax handles. Omega stands Christian up to CHOP! Omega whips, Christian reverses but Omega holds ropes. Omega drop steps to get around Christian and CHOP him again! The Electric Chair, but Christian turns it into double hooks! Omega bails out to avoid the Killswitch!

Christian stays in the ring and says it was that close. Callis coaches Omega, cools him down, then whispers some ideas. Omega seems to like those, but Christian slides out after him! There’s a cat ‘n’ mouse game, Omega CLUBS Christian down then stomps him down. Omega stomps Christian in a corner, over and over, then he lets off as the ref counts. Christian turns it around to CHOP! And CHOP! Omega turns it around to CHOP! And whip corner to corner, then go corner to corner for a LEAPING back elbow! Omega throws Christian out of the ring, runs to baseball slide but Christian slides in! Christian returns to WRECK Omega with a dropkick, right into railing!

Christian drags Omega up to CHOP! Christian puts Omega in the ring, climbs up the corner, but Callis distracts him! Omega SHOVES Christian off the top! Captain Charisma is down but not out as AEW Rampage goes picture in picture!

Omega talks trash to the corner post camera for some reason. Omega goes out to get Christian, drags him up and RAMS him into railing, and then brings him around to RAM him in again! Christian drags himself into the ring but Omega slowly follows. Omega looms over Christian and Christian grabs at Omega’s leg. Omega slaps the hands away, stomps Christian down, then scrapes his soles on Christian’s face! Omega pushes Christian and drops an elbow! Cover, TWO! Omega drags Christian up, Christian throws hands, but Omega CLUBS Christian down! Omega stands on Christian at the ropes, lets off as the ref counts, and mocks the applause of the fans.

Omega already celebrates like he’s won, and he grabs at Christian, only to be dragged down into a cradle! TWO, and Omega CLUBS Christian down! Omega and Callis both argue with the ref but the count was the count. Omega KICKS Christian in the back, stomps him down, KICKS him more, repeat. Omega drags Christian up slowly by his hair, sits Christian up, but Christian throws body shots and fast uppercuts! Omega ROCKS Christian, CHOPS him then reels him in for a suplex, only for Christian to snap suplex first! Fans fire up as Christian stands Omega up, but Omega digs his fingers into Christian’s face! The ref reprimands as Omega puts Christian in a corner.

The ref counts, Omega lets off at 4, to then go after the eyes again! Fans boo, Omega lets off, Jericho supports Omega doing the thumbing of eyes, and Omega puts Christian on the top rope. Omega CHOPS Christian, climbs up, but Christian throws hands. Omega hops down to ROCK Christian, then JAB! Omega climbs again but Christian throws body shots. Omega CLUBS Christian, Christian resists the superplex to CLUB away on Omega! Christian stands up to SUPER SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!! The fans are thunderous as both men are down. A standing count begins, and we spot Orange Cassidy and Kris Statlander in one part of the crowd, and then the Varsity Blonds in another.

Christian RAMS Omega into a corner, climbs up and rains down fists from all sides! Christian gets up to 20 before he lets off! The fans keep up that energy as he gets Omega on the ropes, and STANDS on his back! Then Christian slingshots and UPPERCUTS! Christian goes to a corner, hops up, FLYING UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel as Christian stalks Omega. Callis tries to warn Omega, but Christian hooks arms! Omega gets an arm free and elbows back! Omega fireman’s carries, “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” ROLLING SENTON to MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Omega drags Christian up, fisherman and AOI SHOU- NO! Christian slips out to a REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO!

Mark Henry can’t help but pull for Christian as he aims from a corner! Omega staggers up, Christian runs in, SPEAR meets V-TRIGGER! Omega counters and knocks Christian down! Omega drags Christian up to a POWERBOMB, flip through to V-TRIGGER! Cover, TWO!! Fans are shouting, “THIS IS AWESOME!” as Omega drags Christian up. Electric Chair, but Christian fights back! Omega pops Christian into a waistlock but Christian holds ropes to resist! Christian then elbows Omega way and leaps off the corner to sunset flip! Omega rolls through, but Christian drops back, V-Trigger hits buckles! Christian gets going to SPEAR Omega!! Cover, TWO!!

The Rated R Superstar won’t be happy with his best pal here as Christian can’t finish Omega off! Christian drags Omega as the fans are electric with not so much dueling as complimentary chants, “THIS IS AWESOME!” “FIGHT FOREVER!” Omega gets around to SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX!! Christian wobbles back up, Omega grits his teeth, and Omega reels Christian in for the nelson. SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX!! Omega “loads up,” aims and BANG! Omega runs but Christian bails out! Omega keeps running in but into a REVERSE HOTSHOT! Christian goes up, FROG SPLASH!! Cover, TWO?!?! Everyone is shocked and Callis is basically having a stress test!

Christian drags Omega up, fans love “A E DUB! A E DUB!” But Callis distracts the ref from seeing Omega LOW BLOW UPPERCUT Christian in his charisma! Omega calls to someone, and it’s two someone’s! The Young Bucks sneak out to ringside to slide Omega a chair! Omega sets the chair up, brings Christian over, Electric Chair and- No! Christian slips off to FULL METAL KILLSWITCH!! Cover off the chair shot, Christian WINS!!

Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall (NEW Unified Impact Wrestling Champion)

Omega’s collection gets cut in half! Christian is now Captain IMPACT, the Double Belt Workhorse! Jurassic Express shows up to celebrate with Christian, and now everyone looks ahead to Chicago! If he beat Omega to open Rampage, can Christian beat Omega to main event All Out?

 

Mark Henry interviews Christian backstage.

Christian has to be excited to become the NEW Impact World Champion! JB and Luchasaurus help Christian celebrate with champagne, and Orange Cassidy is just kinda there in the corner. Henry says this is perhaps one of the biggest moments in Christian’s career, but he knows there’s still something more on September 5th. The AEW World Championship is the big moment. Henry wants to know, how does Christian feel? Christian says he’s feeling great, and this Lil’ Bit o’ the Bubbly is damn cold, but it is HOT in Pittsburgh tonight! Now, for one, Christian loves that Mark Henry is here, and also he said he was going to take Omega’s belts, starting with the Impact title(s).

But guess what?! Christian knows Omega is as advertised. Omega is one of the toughest and most talented guys Christian’s ever faced. So if this was hard, it’ll be nearly impossible to win that AEW title. “But I’m living in your head right now, aren’t I, Kenny?” Omega knows what can happen, and it’ll happen again at All Out! Will Christian go from two to THREE belts soon enough?

 

Fuego Del Sol speaks.

“This is the match of my life. This means everything, not only to me, but to my family! These people keep believing in me. They keep chanting my name. This is everything I’ve ever dreamt of and everything I’ve ever worked for.” Miro says AEW is playing games with his contender’s list, but Fuego says he belongs in AEW! God’s Favorite Champion is going to be baptized by fire!

 

AEW TNT Championship VS Contract: Miro VS Fuego Del Sol!

God’s Favorite Champion vows two things: make sure his hot, flexible wife is satisfied in every way; and to forgive his opponents after demolishing them. But Alabama’s Favorite Luchador isn’t going to let that stop him from finally becoming #AllElite! Can Fuego set Rampage on fire by becoming a champion before he’s an official AEW wrestler?

The introductions are made, and the second Miro turns around from the corner, Fuego hits a TILT-O-WHIRL TORNADO DDT!! The ref has him stay back, Miro flounders up and gets the belt off. The bell rings, Miro stands, into the FLYING TORNADO DDT!! Miro flounders out and Fuego can’t believe how close yet how far he is now! Fuego sees the belt and moves it aside while Miro is down! The ring count climbs, the fans are thunderous for Fuego, and Miro staggers at 9! Miro is in at 9.9, but into another TORNADO DDT!! Cover, TWO!?! Fuego is getting red hot though he’s wearing blue tonight! Fuego climbs a corner, Miro staggers up, FLYING-

Miro fireman’s carries Fuego for a BIG BULGARIAN DROP! Miro slaps clarity into his head, stomps about, and Fuego staggers up. Fuego turns around into the BEST KICK!! Miro snarls, gets mad, and shouts, “GAME! OVAAAA!” Then the DEEP GAME OVER CLUTCH! Fuego taps, Miro wins!!

Winner: Miro, by submission (still AEW TNT Champion)

Miro survived and in an instant, he retains his title! He has the contract meant for AEW, and RIPS it to shreds! Miro presents the title to his vengeful God, who will he be destined to destroy next?

 

AEW returns as Fuego picks himself up.

Fans cheer the valiant effort of the luchador, but wait! Sammy Guevara heads out to the ring! The Vlog Crew is represented, and then Tony Khan is here with Sammy! Tony hugs it out with Sammy, then hands him a clipboard…? Sammy has a mic to tell Fuego, “Fuego man, you lost. But sometimes there’s victory in defeat.” Sammy says Fuego has been coming to AEW over the last year, is something like 1-50, but who cares? The people love him! And Fuego, a lot of the guys in the back love you, too. Sammy gets a little choked up as he explains Tony felt it was only right for Sammy to be the one that comes out here.

Since they’re best friends, Sammy gets to say that official, Fuego Del Sol IS All Elite! He gets a contract anyway!! Dreams do come true! Fans are fired up for Fuego, is his career about to heat up?

 

Wait, who’s up in the rafters?

Schiavone isn’t here to say it, but IT’S STIIIIIING! AND DARBY ALLIN! Like AEW’s Batman & Robin, they’re watching over Rampage. Darby Allin has called out the supposed Best in the World for Rampage’s second episode, live from Chicago’s United Center! It’ll be Rampage: The First Dance!

 

Mark Henry holds a double video call interview with Britt Baker and Red Velvet.

The AEW Women’s World Championship main event is coming up, and he starts by asking the challenger, “You rained on Britt Baker’s parade. Why is that?” Velvet asks back, “Did everybody seem to forget that she attacked me with a crutch? Not only did I wanna ruin her night in Pittsburgh, in her hometown, but that was just a preview” of what Velvet will do to ruin Britt’s night tonight, again in her hometown. Velvet can’t wait to stir her ass up!

Henry then asks Britt about that moment, when Velvet showed up to ruin the moment that Britt had in front of the fans. Britt stops him there and says Velvet didn’t ruin anything. She didn’t rain on Britt’s parade, because it doesn’t rain in Brittsburgh, so long as Britt is champ. If Velvet thinks she’s stirring anything, she better stir that ish somewhere else, because this is BRITT’S night. Her main event, her people, her city. And when she competes with a “broken freakin’ wrist,” it’ll be #AndStill your champion, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well enough talk, it’s TIME for the main event, after the break!

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Red Velvet!

The Dentist is in, and #Brittsburgh is more than ready to watch her in Rampage’s first ever main event! But will #TheChef cook up something that rots Britt’s sweet tooth and takes the title from her? Or will the Face of the AEW Women’s Division rearrange Velvet’s face to still be Pittsburgh’s hope?

The introductions are made, the title is raised, and we see if the black ‘n’ yellow still has some gold in it!

The fans are fired up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” right at the bell as Velvet and Britt circle. They tie up, go around, and Velvet headlocks. Britt spins Velvet to a Fujiwara takedown! Velvet slips out, gets Britt’s arm, then steps over, but Britt powers out of the Final Slice! Fans cheer Britt but Velvet circles with her. They tie up, Velvet wrenches, wristlocks, Britt and Velvet circle and Velvet gets an arm again. Fans boo but Britt powers through to snapmare and cravat, only for Velvet to slip out again. Velvet has the arm to wrench, Britt wrenches back as fans chant, “Here we go, Brittsburgh, here we go!” Britt uses a double wristlock takedown to a cover, ONE!

Velvet gets up but Britt pie faces her! Velvet pie faces back! Britt scowls and fans boo but Velvet dodges a kick to roll Britt up! TWO, Velvet headlocks, shifts sides and wrenches to WRANGLE Britt down! Velvet doesn’t stomp Britt’s bad arm and lets her up? Britt gets up, Velvet wrenches her again and hammerlocks. Britt reaches back to drag Velvet back to a cover, TWO! Britt uses an arm to flip Velvet over, cover, TWO! Britt and Velvet reset, Britt knees Velvet low. Britt whips Velvet to a corner, runs in but misses! Velvet wraps the bad arm around the ropes but the ref counts. Velvet lets off, but she gets Britt’s arm again to wrench it! The ref has Velvet back off so she does.

Velvet pulls Britt along by her hair, Britt gets around to back elbow! Velvet wobbles, Britt knees her low. Britt whips, Velvet ducks and dodges but Britt redirects, only to run into a LEG LARIAT! Velvet stirs it up to the STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Velvet keeps focus but Britt hits low as AEW goes picture in picture.

Britt knees Velvet, whips her to ropes but Velvet blocks hip toss to arm-drag! But Britt uses that to wrangle Velvet into a grounded motorcycle stretch STOMP! Britt takes a moment to brag, “D! M! D!” Then she drags Velvet up. Britt shoves Velvet, Velvet turns things around to fire off hands! Velvet whips Britt but Britt wrangles her down again! Waistlock to bridge, TWO, but Britt holds onto Velvet. Britt shifts up to a chinlock with a half straitjacket, but Velvet endures. The fans use their Terrible Towels to rally behind Britt as she shoves Velvet to a cover. TWO, and Britt keeps on Velvet with a facelock. Britt gets Velvet up, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Britt stalks Velvet to ropes, chokes her then has the motorcycle stretch for a STOMP into the ropes! The ref argues with Britt but this keeps them from seeing Rebel choking Velvet with her own Terrible Towel! Rebel gets away it it as Britt comes back over to knee Velvet down. Britt drags Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then stomps away on her! The ref reprimands, Britt lets off to dig a boot into Velvet, then lets off again. But now the ref can’t see Rebel using her crutch to choke Velvet! Britt still talks with the ref, Rebel lets off, and Britt whips Velvet out then into the corner! Britt sneers as she swaggers about, but she walks into Velvet’s body shots!

AEW returns to single picture as Britt pushes Velvet into the corner and KNEES her low! Britt whips Velvet out then in again, only for Velvet to make it a straitjacket NECKBREAKER! Velvet pushes Britt into a corner, fires off boxing body shots then kicks a leg out. Britt ducks the Chef’s Kiss and comes back with a clothesline, but Velvet hits the arm! It’s the bad arm, so Velvet hits an ARM CODE BREAKER! Statlander is still in the front row as Velvet covers, TWO! Velvet keeps her cool, drags Britt up, and fans rally for “DMD!” Britt avoids the Final Slice again, kicks low, then FISHERMAN SCREWS! Britt runs in to La Magistrol to the ghost pin, TWO! Now the Rings of Saturn!

Fans fire up as Britt waves, but Velvet turns the hold to a cover, TWO! Velvet has the arm, pulls back and goes after the brace! The fans boo as Velvet gets the hand exposed! Rebel distracts, Velvet throws the glove at her! Britt gets up and rolls Velvet up, TWO!! Rebel has the title belt now, but the ref sees that! The ref EJECTS Rebel! Britt is furious, as are the fans, but Velvet SUPERKICKS! Britt is down, Velvet goes to the corner! Fans are calling BS but Velvet MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Britt survives and Brittsburgh comes alive. Velvet shakes her head, gets Britt up, but Britt suplexes to a LAST SHOT BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!?!

Britt can’t believe Velvet survived but she gets Velvet up and runs to CURB STOMP!! Cover, TWO!?!? Velvet survives again and then gets Britt’s arm! Britt slips out, CLUBS Velvet, and CLUBS her again. The ref checks on the bad arm, and Velvet gets it! Velvet STEALS Rings of Saturn but can’t get the Lockjaw! Britt fights, shakes her head around, reaches around, but Velvet pushes off the ropes, only for Britt to turn it all around! Rings of Saturn, and though no glove, Britt reaches out, and Velvet grabs the bad hand to SMASH it over and over and over into the mat! And then hammer away on it! Britt gets her bad hand away and shifts around to make it a MIRRORED Rings!

Velvet resists but LOCKJAW! Velvet quits, Britt wins!!

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

Who knew Britt could switch hit! Or, rather switch submit! The Doctor reigns in Pitt, but she gives Velvet another FISHERMAN SCREW! The ref reprimands but Britt puts the belt in the ring, sets Velvet up, only for Statlander to get in and DECK Britt! Wait someone gets in and DECKS Statlander?! Who- Is that Jamie Hayter?! She returns to AEW after about two years, and she looks so different! Britt said she was getting new back-up, and here’s Hayter! And she helps Britt set Velvet up for the BELT CURB STOMP!! Britt literally steps over Velvet, Hayter raises Britt’s hand, and the Rampage Era has truly begun!


My Thoughts:

An awesome debut for Rampage, with all the matches from top to bottom being amazing! And as advertised, there were no distractions, all action as this hour was mostly matches. Omega VS Christian was a great match, and even greater on the surprising result of Christian winning! This makes Christian a five-time world champion, and I suppose specifically a three-time Impact World Champion. This is great for what it means in the overall Omega story, in that this is the beginning of what I was hoping for. Omega has to run a gauntlet of sorts with high profile, high level matches. Omega lost here but I don’t think he’ll be losing at All Out, so Christian got his win here.

Miro of course won tonight, but it was great to see Fuego fire off so many DDT’s, and then still get a contract for the effort he’s been putting in. And then the main event, Britt VS Velvet with a HOT crowd for Britt made for a great first main event for Rampage. The action was great, Velvet got a great showing even in losing, but of course Britt retains since this was her crowd. It was a good detail that Kris got in to save Velvet while also staking her claim to the next title shot, but also how great to see a return from Hayter. Her being added to Britt’s group is a great way for Hayter to get screen time, and now we can have some tag team builds with Britt & Hayter VS Statlander & Velvet.

My Score: 9.2/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!

Philly is fired up to sing Judas for Le Champion as he leads the way out for Tay Melo, Sammy Guevara, Anna Jay “A S,” “Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard, “Cool Hand” Angelo Parker, and a less than enthused Daniel Garcia. And no, it has nothing to do with them all wearing matching purple satin suits. The JAS goes to the ring where there is a purple carpet, purple balloons, golden number 8 balloons to acknowledge this is #OCHO for Jericho, and wow! Luigi Primo is there spinning pizza dough! Seems he catered this event for the JAS. Fans cheer but Parker gets the mic to say, “AEW Galaxy… APPRECIATE US!”

Parker says if there’s one thing we all know about Philly, it’s that Philly is the city of LOSERS! Fans boo that but Parker knows they’re not used to championship celebrations. But don’t worry, the JAS is here to give them that gift! Everyone, stand up and join in celebrating THE OCHOOOO~! Fans are a bit torn, but Menard says “What a celebration we have for you tonight! Daddy Magic put the call in to the pizza guy, Luigi Primo,” who is still spinning dough. Luigi, Daddy Magic loves a bit o’ the pizza. What kind of pizza did Luigi make for them tonight? He made the best pizza! From NEW YORK CITY!

That’s right! Philly thought they were getting a taste? “I DON’T THINK SO! No pizza for you! No pizza for you! No pizza for anybody!” Anna says NONE of the fans get pizza. Fans chant, “We Want Pizza!” Anna tells them to shut up! They don’t shut up. “I’LL CHOKE YOU OUT!” They don’t care! Anna says they do get the greatest ROH World Champion of all time, #THEOCHO, Chris Jericho~! Fans are again torn. Jericho takes the mic now and says, “You guys want pizza?” “YES!” “You can’t have any. What you can have is the most important ROH champion in history, THE OCHO, Chris Jericho!

“Everyone knows I’m the most honorable man in AEW, and now it’s official. I’m also the most viewed ROH champion. In just one week, more people have seen me win this belt than all other ROH champions put together, cuz no one knows about ROH! But you’re about to! Because I’m gonna change the way ROH is remembered. This is the era of the Ring of Jericho. And I’m gonna start tonight,” as the others dig into the pizza, “by having my first title defense against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers today, former ROH Champion, BANDIDO.” Fans cheer for that!

Jericho knows Bandido “never got the rematch for this championship that he deserves, I’m gonna give it to him tonight. Trust me, the man is gonna blow your mind. But trust me once again, he is a pro-wrestler, and like I always say, sports entertainers beat pro-wrestlers every single time.” Fans boo but the JAS applaud. And speaking of sports entertainer, it’s the ROH Pure Champion, Danny Garcia! Fans cheer for Garcia and Jericho knows they’ve had some miscommunications and some issues, but Jericho wants Garcia to know that Garcia is an amazing champion, an amazing sports entertainer, and he bought a gift just for Garcia.

Fans chant, “You’re a Wrestler!” but Garcia accepts the Gift of Jericho. It’s… a purple bucket hat! Jericho puts it on him! YES! That is the look of the Best Technical Sports Entertainer of All Time! Garcia doesn’t look happy, though. Garcia takes the hat off and fans cheer! Garcia throws it down and fans cheer more! And then Garcia DECKS Luigi! Fans boo that a bit but Garcia gets a mic. “This is enough. Chris, this is enough. This isn’t me. This is never what I envisioned myself doing when I wanted to get into this business. And I tolerated it for a little bit, but I think I’ve finally had enough.” Fans cheer that!

Garcia says he wants to tell Jericho something he’s been meaning to get off his chest for a long time now: “Chris… I think it’s time for me to-” Jericho cuts Garcia off by pushing the mic down. Jericho then tells Garcia to really think about what he’s about to say. “This is a crossroads for you. Make the right decision, you can be bigger than your wildest dreams in this business. Make the wrong decision, and I’m gonna have to take you out.” Jericho is going to ask Garcia just this once and Garcia needs to answer properly: “Are you a sports entertainer? Or are you a pro-wrestler?” Fans cheer for the one they wanna hear!

Garcia stares Jericho down and then brings the mic up. But then BRYAN DANIELSON makes his way out here! William Regal sees Bryan out to the stage, but the American Dragon is all alone as he approaches the ring. Bryan picks up the bucket hat to look at it. “Chris, it seems to me like you’re trying to tell Daniel Garcia what you think he should be. Garcia, listen. I have an infinite amount of respect for you. You’re a grown man. You can do whatever you want. If you wanna stay with the Jericho Appreciation Society, you can stay with them. If you wanna come to the Blackpool Combat Club,” which fans cheer loudly, “you can come with us.”

If Garcia wants to train with the JAS, or if he wants to train with the BCC. If Garcia wants to team with the JAS or if he wants to team with the BCC- Jericho tells Bryan to shut his mouth! Fans boo but Jericho says he is sick of Bryan trying to poach his guy! Garcia belongs to Jericho! Garcia does what Jericho tells him to do! Except Garcia gets in Jericho’s face! Garcia tells Jericho they’re getting one thing straight right now: Garcia does NOT belong to Jericho, and he does NOT have to do what he tells Garcia.

But let’s not get too serious now. This is supposed to be entertaining, right? So if Jericho wants sports entertainment, what if Garcia grabbed some of this pizza and he threw it on the ground. Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Garcia throws the pizza out of the ring! What if Garcia woke up Luigi Primo and started tossing dough with him? Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Justin Roberts, what if you and Garcia were a tag team? That’d be entertaining, right? Fans are more torn on that one. Garcia asks if the fans think it’d be entertaining if Garcia was in a tag team with Bryan Danielson. “YES!! YES!! YES!!”

Garcia asks Jericho if he wants to know what Garcia thinks would be really entertaining. If he and Bryan teamed up against Jericho’s little brother, Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho! Fans cheer for that one! Menard says he is sick of Garcia’s crap! For one year, when he had NOTHING and NOBODY, Menard & Parker had his back! And now Garcia wants to spit in their face and turn his back on them for “this piece of crap right here?” Menard oughta punch Bryan in the face and knock him out right now! Bryan says, “Right now? Wait, do you wanna punch me right now? Right here, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania?” Fans want it!

Well then, Bryan has good news! He was told that he can come out here and have a match with anyone who wants to fight him! And Menard said he wanted to fight, so why don’t we do the “Entertainer,” Daddy Magic VS “The Heart of Professional Wrestling,” Bryan Danielson! And right here, right now!! Menard is fired up, the rest of the JAS holds him back, but will the American Dragon be the one doing the slaying tonight?

Bryan Danielson VS Matthew Menard w/ Angelo Parker!

Menard shoves Bryan and the bell rings! Fans fire up as Menard talks trash on Bryan. Menard shoves Bryan again, and again, but then Bryan EuroUppers! And EuroUppers! And EuroUppers! Menard kicks low, bumps Bryan off buckles and RAMS his shoulder in! Menard RAMS again and again, then climbs up to rain down fists! The ref counts, Menard lets off at 4, and he RAMS into Bryan some more! Parker applauds but then Bryan turns things around. Bryan CHOPS Menard, KICKS him, then KICKS and KICKS! Fans rally, Bryan wrenches and goes after the arm but Menard powers out. Bryan runs Menard over, then arm-drags him around!

Bryan has the armlock and he bends the fingers! Bryan top wristlocks to then isolate the arm, to STOMP it! Menard clutches the elbow but stands up into more EuroUppers. Bryan has Menard in a corner but Menard kicks low. Menard bumps Bryan off buckles, fires off forearms, then CHOPS! Bryan snarls but Menard CHOPS again. And again! Bryan EuroUppers Menard back! And again! Bryan whips Menard corner to corner but Menard reverses. Bryan BOOTS Menard, goes up, but Menard SHOVES Bryan down! Bryan tumbles to the floor and fans boo. Menard goes out to fetch Bryan and whips him hard into railing!

AEW goes picture in picture as Menard storms up on Bryan. Menard whips Bryan into more railing, then he brings Bryan around to whip into more railing! Menard refreshes the ring count and Parker taunts Bryan. Bryan crawls while Menard soaks up the heat. Menard watches Bryan as he gets in the ring, and he stomps Bryan at the ropes. Menard digs his knee in, lets off as the ref counts, and Menard soaks up more heat while Parker talks trash. The ref tells Parker to back away and Menard drags Bryan up for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Another cover, ONE! Menard clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Bryan down.

Bryan endures, fights up, and fans rally as Bryan throws body shots. Bryan is free, he EuroUppers Menard again then whips. Menard reverses and CLOBBERS Bryan with an elbow! Menard soaks up more heat while Bryan gets to ropes. Menard stomps Bryan, rains down punches, but lets off as the ref counts the ropebreak. Menard drags Bryan up, ROCKS him in a corner, then CHOPS him. Bryan goes to another corner but Menard keeps after him with another CHOP! Dynamite returns to single picture as Menard whips corner to corner. Bryan reverses but Menard comes back to LARIAT!

Both men are down but Menard drags Bryan up for a short arm LARIAT! And then another! Cover, TWO! Menard is frustrated and fans rally for Bryan. Bryan grits his teeth, Menard gives him kicks to the chest, and a CHOP! Bryan snarls and stands up. Menard CHOPS again, but Bryan just powers up! Menard CHOPS again but Bryan just eggs him on! Menard CHOPS, Bryan CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Bryan fires off CHOPS and KICKS in the corner! Bryan whips but Menard reverses, only for Bryan to go up and over! Bryan keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! Fans fire up while Menard flounders to a corner!

Bryan runs in corner to corner to DROPKICK! Bryan keeps going, another DROPKICK! And Bryan still keeps going, and he hits a third DROPKICK! Fans fire up but Parker is worried as Bryan watches Menard sit up. Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! Fans chant “YES!” with every one, but Parker saves Menard from the Buzzsaw! Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but Bryan WRECKS Menard with a dropkick! Bryan takes aim, but Parker saves Menard from the flying knee! Menard RAMS Bryan into railing, and then he hoists Bryan up to POST him in the groin! The ref reprimands again, Menard distracts him so that Parker can DDT Bryan to the floor!

Fans boo but Parker puts Bryan in and Menard hoists him up, POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Bryan survives the screw job, and here comes Claudio! Claudio chases Parker, Parker loses his jacket and a shoe as he flees! Parker flounders through the ring then back out, only for Claudio to CLOBBER him with a EuroUpper! Claudio then gut wrenches Parker to carry him away up the ramp! Fans fire up as things are truly 1v1 now! Menard realizes what happened to Parker, he turns around and swings but Bryan dodges! BUSAIKU KNEE! And then the omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Menard taps, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Blackpool Combat Club watches out for each other, and Bryan gets a win! Will this help Bryan climb up towards a title match? Will the BCC soon have Daniel Garcia and the ROH Pure title on their side?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Moxley VS Juice.

Tony Schiavone notes that Jon Moxley, having won the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, is now a THREE-TIME AEW World Champion, the most in history. And his interim championship reign made this year “The Summer of Moxley.” Can anyone dethrone him? Schiavone doesn’t think so. But the Bullet Club’s Booster asks, “What happened last time Jon Moxley was in the ring with Rock Hard Juice Robinson?” He of course means NJPW Capital Collision’s IWGP United States Championship Fatal 4 Way that Juice won to become the then champion. “I’ve hated this guy for ten YEARS!”

If Juice can beat Moxley in Philly, then he has a chance in Washington D.C. to face Moxley for the AEW World Championship. If Juice can do it once, can he do it again? Or will Moxley cross him off the list?

 

MJF is- Wait, Wheeler Yuta is here!

The Decoder storms out after watching the recap package of his encounter with MJF, and now he gets the mic! “M J F! MJF, we have a real serious problem, man. And it’s not what you think. It’s not that you’ve got this whole new army of lackeys, I could’ve seen that one coming from a few miles away. No, man, it’s not that you just tried to cheap shot me with the Dynamite Diamond Ring, because I’ve been hit a lot harder by a lot better men. Max, it’s the fact that you had the audacity to put your hands on Tony Schiavone, a man who has done more for AEW than you ever will! And Maxwell, Maxwell, I think actions should have consequences.

“And what better punishment than for you to walk down here and fight me in MY city!” Philly cheers, but Yuta then tells them sorry, don’t get too excited. We all know that Max just likes to run and hide. He liked to hide behind The Inner Circle, behind The Pinnacle, and now he’s hiding behind The Firm. He likes to hide behind that fake tan, his suits, and this very microphone. Because Max knows that once the bell rings, he can’t hang with Yuta! “So Max, if you wanna address these wonderful people in Philly, I’ll go ahead and do it for ya.

“Alright, uh, what do we got here? Charisma of drying paint, pet rock, I don’t think the Phillies have made the playoffs in like 11 years. He probably doesn’t even know that. I don’t know. But yeah, alright, what else? Can we skip to the part where we fight? Where you come down here and you take the ass kicking you deserve?!” Yuta’s fired up and here comes MJF! MJF has his music cut, and he’s wearing a Mets jersey, of course. Everyone give it up for the hometown boy, Yuta! “Philly: the place where you live if you can’t afford to live in New York!” Fans boo as MJF smiles.

But speaking of embarrassing, hi, Schiavone! How’s that body holding up after last week, “ya fat old pr*ck?” But MJF knows Schiavone won’t do anything because he’s “a lowdown coward, just like everybody in this Podunk arena! Except for you, Wheeler, I’ll give you credit, you’re not coward. We practically grew up in this sport together. I have been wrestling you up and down North America when we were on the independent circuit just trying to make a name for ourselves. And I’m not afraid to admit, you’re one of the best wrestlers in the world.

However, you made a big mistake when you decided to go toe-to-toe on the mic with Daddy last week. And Daddy had to put you on timeout, didn’t he? Daddy had to spank you some.” MJF tells Philly to shut up while he’s got the mic. MJF finds it interesting that Yuta claims MJF doesn’t care about AEW, yet here Yuta is, taking up a lot of TV time from the biggest draw in AEW! And to make matters worse, Yuta is talking into a mic! Yuta, the… Fans tell MJF to STFU but MJF keeps going. Yuta has about as much charisma as Joe Frazier does present day. By the way, Frazier is dead! And speaking of dead, the Phillies are dead in the water and are never gonna win the World Series ever again!

Yuta’s amused that MJF actually went after the Phillies. MJF says whoops, there’s that local sports team talk. It’s almost like MJF doesn’t give an F! It’s almost like at 26 years of age, MJF doesn’t have to care, because he makes more money than everyone in this bum town! More than the people watching at home! MJF is a multi-millionaire at just 26! Yuta cuts MJF off here. Let’s make one thing very clear: Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s money; he doesn’t care about MJF’s Mets jersey; Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s scarf! If MJF doesn’t wanna fight Yuta in the ring, then Yuta will leave MJF in a pool of blood on Broad Street!! Fans cheer for that one!

MJF wants Yuta to cool off but Yuta says MJF may not know this, “but bad things happen in Philadelphia. And tonight is no exception.” Yuta rushes up the ramp but MJF gets his back-up in the Gunn Sons! Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” of The Firm, but Yuta dares them all to fight! MJF doesn’t do brawls, but if Yuta wants to wrestle, they can do that. If Yuta wants that, if the fans want that, then NO! HAHAHAHA! MJF will see Yuta in the ring next week in “Dumpy D.C.” But until then, remember this: He is… Oh, wait, the fans don’t deserve his catchphrase.

MJF will go to the skybox, watch Moxley be a horrible wrestler, and maybe cash his chip in on the Blackpool Cuckold Club. Until then, sayonara. Austin, you tell the people his catchphrase. MJF leaves as Austin takes the mic. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” some more, but Austin says “MJF is better than you… And you know it!” The Scum of the Earth is waiting for the Dynamite Anniversary to fight Yuta, but will he not wait to cash in his chips?

 

AEW hears from Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, and Darby Allin.

Sonjay “congratulates” Darby Allin on one hell of a win alongside Sting. But it seems Darby still has something to prove. He is sorely mistaken if he thinks he’s gonna do that against Sonjay’s best friend, Jay Lethal. Lethal says Darby will be outclassed. Darby likes to take a lot of pain, but we’ll see how much he likes walking around after Lethal breaks one of his legs with a Figure Four! Darby says everyone wants to be a champion, but how they get there can be oh so different. Darby is going to remind himself of what he is capable of when he takes on Lethal 1v1 with no Sonjay or Satnam ringside.

Lethal says Darby has something to prove, but so does Lethal! Lethal accepts the challenge and wants to beat Darby on his own. No Sonjay, no Satnam, no Sting, who will win between the Lethal and the Relentless?

 

AEW World Title Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Juice Robinson!

As we already heard, The Maniac is the most prolific AEW World Champion, but he still owes “Rock Hard” Robinson from Capital Collision. Will Moxley unload on Juice to move on to the next challenger? Or will Juice force Moxley into another showdown in DC?

As Moxley makes it to ringside from his bleacher side entrance, Juice CLOBBERS him! Moxley hits railing, Juice stomps away, the ref reprimands and fans boo. Juice drags Moxley up to whip him hard into railing! Juice tells the ref this ain’t his first match, and he drags Moxley up to HEADBUTT him! Moxley staggers, Juice HEADBUTTS Moxley again, and then follows him around the way. Juice puts Moxley in the ring, the bell rings, and Juice soaks up the heat with Too Sweets. Juice gets in the ring but Moxley clotheslines him up and out! Moxley throws off his shirt and storms out after Juice to whip him into railing now!

Fans fire up and the ring count climbs. Moxley drags Juice up, and snap suplexes Juice to the floor! Moxley refreshes the ring count to drag Juice up, but as MJF said, he’s in the skybox. MJF gives a thumbs down since Moxley’s in control, and Moxley THROWS Juice onto the timekeeper’s table! Juice and the table fall over, the ring count climbs again, and Moxley drags Juice up and into the ring. Juice throws hands but Moxley just gets in his face. Fans fire up, Juice throws another forearm but Moxley ROCKS Juice back! Juice throws another forearm, Moxley throws another, repeat! Fans rally as they go back and forth faster and faster!

Juice JABS and JABS and JABS, then powers up, but Moxley kicks low! Moxley fires off boxing elbows, EuroUppers, then runs, but Juice chokes and BITES Moxley! The ref reprimands, Juice lets off and Moxley goes to a corner. Juice runs in to clothesline! Moxley sits down, Juice calls his shot and he runs corner to corner, CANNON- NO, LARIAT! Moxley drags Juice back up, hooks the arms, but Juice tackles Moxley out of the ring! Moxley gets up to his feet first and goes to the railing. Moxley sits down to rest, but Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice hurries into the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ring count is climbing but Moxley flounders around. The count is 7 of 10, then 8! Moxley slides in at 9! Juice is right on Moxley and he TOSSES Moxley back out! Juice then goes out after Moxley and drags him up to TOSS into the timekeeper’s area! Juice returns the favor, as he tells the ref, and then Juice gets in the ring. Juice goes back out, and Moxley’s busted open! Moxley sputters but Juice grabs him first to POST him! Juice gets in the ring to flex and soak up the heat. Moxley gets up and in but Juice looms over him. Juice sits Moxley up so he can BITE the wound!! Juice lets off as the ref counts, but he tastes Moxley’s blood!

Moxley is mad now, and he storms up to Juice. Juice ROCKS Moxley, Moxley CHOPS Juice! Juice CHOPS Moxley and Moxley falls out of the ring! Juice taunts Moxley as he staggers about. Juice goes out, MJF is talking trash to fans now, and Juice AX HANDLES Moxley down! Juice rains down fists on the bloody forehead and BITES it again! Juice lets off, wipes away Moxley’s blood, and soaks up more heat. Juice drags Moxley up to snap suplex him to the floor! Juice gets in the ring, Moxley drags himself up, but Juice is there to DECK him! Moxley goes back to the floor, and Juice AX HANDLES him down again!

Moxley ends up taking a seat in the chair, and Juice HEADBUTTS away on him! Dynamite returns to single picture, Juice lets off to go to the apron and soak up more heat. Juice CANNONBALLS but Moxley moves! Juice only gets chair!! Even MJF is wincing from that one. Moxley gets back in the ring but Juice crawls over. Fans rally for Moxley as he drags himself up. Moxley builds speed and he DIVES! Direct hit and Juice hits railing! Moxley puts Juice in the ring, Juice goes to a corner. Moxley takes aim, runs in, but Juice BOOTS him! Juice runs in, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! They go again, DOUBLE LARIATS collide even harder!

Juice roars and Moxley snarls, CUTTER OUTTA NOWHERE! Cover, TWO!! Juice survives but Moxley has the ANKLE LOCK! Moxley leans on the hold but Juice endures and moves around. Juice gets the ROPEBREAK before Moxley can step through for the STF! Moxley lets off and has Juice in a corner. Moxley rains down fists, but Juice digs fingers into the eye and forehead wound! Juice then hits a RUNNING POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Juice is frustrated but he goes to the corner. Juice climbs up top, fans rally up, and Moxley stands up. Juice jumps, into a kick! But Juice fights the underhooks to POST Moxley!

Juice then drags Moxley out, chicken wings, PULP FRICTION!! Cover, TWO!!! Moxley survives and Juice can’t believe it! Fans fire up while Juice argues with the ref. Juice calms down, he calls his shot, and he torture racks Moxley! Juice spins around, but Moxley slips out of the Rockslide to hit a REGAL KNEE!! Cover, TWO!?! But Moxley has the knuckle locks for DRAGON STOMPS! Fans fire up and Moxley clamps on an ARMBAR! Juice taps, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (denies Juice Robinson a title match)

MJF is upset, Juice didn’t do enough damage for his liking. But Moxley denies Juice a DC title match, will MJF decide to change targets? Wait! Here comes Hangman Page! The Cowboy has his golden ticket for Cincinnati, and he goes right into the ring. Fans fire up for this stare down, and the two look ready to square off! But then MJF has a mic in his skybox to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Ladies, settle down, settle down, settle down. Don’t you realize you’re not fighting each other? You’re not fighting each other, man. What you’re doing is fighting to lose. Cuz once you two morons get to Cincinnati, I just might cash my chip in and become the NEW AEW World Champion!

“Because I am a generational… talent!” But Yuta finds MJF! Fans fire up and MJF is confused. Yuta turns MJF around to fire off haymakers! And then he THRWOS MJF into the couch! Yuta fires off, he drags MJF up and he throws him into the bleachers! Security rushes in but Yuta fights them off! Yuta goes after MJF again and fans fire up, but security drags Yuta away! MJF has been saved for tonight, will MJF definitely reconsider what he’s doing in DC?

 

Saraya is here!

And just as Justin Roberts made sure to say, “SA-RAY-YA” is All Elite! Fans fire up to see the #Glampire go to the ring and get the mic. “Whew. I’ve got chills right now, you guys. Ahem. I’m baaaack~!” Fans chant, “Welcome Back!” and Saraya asks, “So you missed me? It feels fantastic to be back in the ring, you guys. It’s obviously been a crazy road. I’m damaged, but I’m not broken, at the end of the day.” Fans cheer that! Saraya says it’s great to be back, and it is great to be here in AEW, because she is going to create change in the division. She was the revolution before, and she’ll be the revolution here, because she IS the revolution!

Fans chant, “This is Your House!” and Saraya smiles. “It’s really hard to talk out here, guys, I’m so nervous. It’s been awhile. But AEW is officially my house.” The crew can give her time cues all they want, but she’ll leave when she’s ready. Let’s take up more time with ALL the ladies of AEW! And starting that off is Interim AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm! She leads Athena, Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Willow Nightingale, and they all go to the ring together to stand with Saraya. Saraya wants the fans to make some noise and they do. “When I said we’re gonna make a change, I promise you, we’re gonna make a change.”

Saraya wants to reintroduce us to these ladies. And she’ll start with the champ, Toni Storm. Fans cheer as Saraya says Toni is finally being utilized to her full potential. She is a fighting champion, the best champion AEW has seen! And Saraya is honored to be in the ring with Toni. But “Well, well, well.” Britt Baker leads Rebel, Jamie Hayter & Penelope Ford out. “Look what we have here, guys. Another shiny new toy. And we’ve seen them come, we’ve certainly seen them go. But until you actually earn some respect around here, all you are is a catchphrase. Unlike myself, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.”

Britt isn’t sure Saraya watches AEW, but Britt is the Face of the Women’s Division, and she’s literally put her blood, sweat and tears into this company. In fact, Britt even put her neck on the line for AEW. And unlike Saraya’s, Britt’s neck can handle it. Britt says Saraya made such a big impact, but half of the people in this room can’t even say her name. “Sa-Ray-Ya? Sa-Rye-Ya? Psoriasis?” Saraya tells Britt to stop right there. It is cute that Britt of all people are trying to make fun of Saraya’s name. “Well, doctor, your name rhymes with sh*t.” Hayter and Rebel try to tell Britt that’s not true, but then the fans chant it at her!

Britt tells Toni Storm that she respects her. She doesn’t like her, but Britt does respect her. Britt had such high hopes for Toni when she first got here, but she couldn’t keep herself away from all the problematic people in wrestling. They’re always in Toni’s corner. In fact, last week, they all knew the title was Britt’s, so Toni and her new tag partner, Athena, broke her nose to take her out! And yet again, conspiracy! But that’s not why they’re here tonight. They’re here because Toni has quite the match on her hands tonight. Serena Deeb is one of the most cold-blooded and calculating wrestlers on the planet.

Fans are chanting more for Hayter than Britt, but Britt says Toni is lucky she isn’t facing Hayter! Hayter gets her shot after Deeb. One misstep from Toni against The Professor, and they’ll be hearing the words, “AND NEW…” Britt calls for Serena, and Serena heads out! Britt wants the others to get out, their five minutes of fame are up. But Saraya has the music stop a moment. Saraya admits she hasn’t been around AEW that long, but she does have eyes and ears. She knows Britt’s crew likes to “get up to some funky stuff.” So how about this? Since she talked to Tony Khan–by the way, it’s so great to have a boss that finally listens to her!

But it was decided that they’ll make this match a Lumberjack match! The title is on the line, Toni has back-up just like Deeb does, and Saraya says it’s time to get this show on the road! Will the Wolf sink her teeth into the title to Britt’s delight? Or will it still be #ToniTime in Philly?

Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Lumberjack Match: Toni Storm VS Serena Deeb!

The bell rings, Saraya joins commentary, and fans rally for Toni. Toni and Deeb tie up, Deeb goes after an arm and wrenches to a wristlock. Toni reaches back, headlocks, but Deeb pries free to a hammerlock. Deeb wrangles Toni to the mat but Toni reaches back again. Toni rolls, hammerlocks and then gets Deeb’s other arm! Toni shows she’s got technical prowess as she flips Deeb to a cover, ONE! Toni facelocks but Deeb fights up. Deeb wrenches out, wrenches again, then headlocks. Toni endures the grind, even as Deeb thrashes. Toni powers out, Deeb RAMS shoulders but Toni comes back to run Deeb over!

Deeb bails out, but Madison and Willow put her in! Toni BOOTS Deeb down! Deeb goes to a corner, Toni CHOPS away on her! Deeb turns it around to CHOP back! And MACHINE GUN CHOP! Toni stops it short to fire off forearms! Toni reels Deeb in to hoist her up top! Toni then climbs up behind and stands Deeb up. Fans fire up but Deeb resists. Toni SUPER BACK- CROSSBODY from Deeb! Cover, TWO! Deeb hurries to get Toni up and she throws her out to the other side. Britt, Hayter and Rebel stomp away! But Athena leads the charge and they back everyone off of Storm. Saraya likes seeing this “good trouble” as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref has the Lumberjacks all stand down, and Storm gets up to get in the ring. Deeb is right on her with EuroUppers! Deeb short arm LARIATS Toni down, covers, TWO! Deeb is frustrated but she stomps away on Storm. Storm kicks back, Deeb kicks her to the ropes and pie faces her around. Britt and Ford talk some trash as Deeb drags Toni up for TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Deeb soaks up the heat as she paces around Toni. Deeb stands on Storm’s face to scrape her sole off Storm’s face! Deeb clamps onto Storm to throw down crossface forearms! Deeb then drags Storm up to EuroUpper back down!

Britt cheers Deeb on as she cravats Storm and thrashes her around. Storm endures, Madison and the others rally, and Storm snapmares free! Deeb hurries back but swings into a backslide! TWO!! A close call but Deeb swings again, into a roll-up! TWO! Deeb hurries to clinch but Storm fires forearms! Storm fires more and more and more shots, then ROCKS Deeb! Deeb rebounds as Dynamite returns to single picture, and Storm LARIATS Deeb down! Deeb staggers, Storm whips but Deeb reverses, only for Storm to SHOTGUN! Storm hurries to a corner and climbs up, Deeb stands for the CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Deeb bails out and Athena is there to bring her up. Athena puts Deeb in for Storm, and Storm GERMAN SUPLEXES! Deeb flounders to a corner and fans cheer as Storm says kiss this! But Deeb ducks the hips to victory roll, TWO! Deeb hurries to get a leg, DRAGON- NO, Storm sits on the dragon screw, TWO! Deeb sunset flips, TWO! Deeb has a body scissor for the INVERTED MOTORCYCLE! Deeb sits deep on the hold and Saraya says this is what happens when Britt is out of the equation and the women can have time. Deeb rolls Storm around into a BUTTERFLY STRETCH! Storm endures, pushes to a cover, TWO!!

Deeb lets Storm free, Storm HEADBUTTS her back! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Storm drags Deeb up, fans fire up, and Storm runs, only for Hayter to trip her up! Hayter drags Storm out, Skye storms up on Hayter, but Hayter DECKS Skye! Willow shoves Hayter, she and Hayter start brawling! Fans fire up as these two run to the back! The rest of the Lumberjacks put Storm in, Deeb hits a headlock takeover and floats to a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Omoplata, and the half crab, SERENITY LOCK! Storm endures, claws forward, but Deeb sits down to really wrench the leg! Fans still rally, and Storm reaches out!

Britt holds the ropes back, but the ref reprimands. Athena CLOBBERS Ford and Rebel, then backs Britt down! Storm gets the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets Britt go, but she drags Storm around to reel her in. Deeb tucks the arms, but Storm back drops free! Fans fire up with Storm as she goes back up top! Britt barks at Storm but Storm CROSSBODIES! Deeb rolls through! HALF CRAB!! And it is deep as Storm endures all over again! Storm grits her teeth, turns over and pushes Deeb down. Storm kicks away and Deeb stumbles into a corner! SWEET HIP MUSIC! Storm drags Deeb up, reels her in, but Deeb jackknife counters! TWO!!

Storm hits STORM ZERO!! Cover, TWO!?!? Deeb survives being spiked and no one can believe it! Deeb and Storm rise up and fans are fire dup. Storm runs in, Deeb dodges to put the legs in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW!! Britt coaches Deeb up and Deeb climbs, but Storm stands up to HEADBUTT! Storm climbs up after Deeb, Deeb throws body shots, they brawl up top and Storm gets the edge. SUPER STORM ZERO!?!? Cover, Storm wins!!!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (still Interim AEW Women’s World Champion)

Saraya loves seeing it! The Lightning From Down Under strikes down Deeb, who will step up to her next?

 

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Tony Schiavone is with Billy Gunn and the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Max Caster says, “Yo, listen!” Anthony Bowens says, “Philadelphia, your AEW Tag Team Champions have arrived!” Billy says, “And right when you think that that can’t get any better, next week on Dynamite, it is National Scissoring Day!” Caster says bring your shirts, bring your signs, bring your big scissors, because they’ll do the chant all night long! Y’know why? Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And there’s more! This Friday night, your #ForeverChamps have an open contract to defend these titles!

And in walks Keith Lee. He applauds them. He wants to congratulate them properly, but as you can see, Swerve is not here this week. He is “exceptionally disgruntled.” Keith has been watching Swerve’s back, and he understands why Swerve is upset. Billy Gunn, you physically got involved and cost the Limitless House their titles. “You boys got carried. Good luck.” Keith heads out but Billy tells him to tell Swerve, “I’ve got two words for him: Scissor me~!” The Acclaimed is having a good time now, but will things turn around in a flash with that open challenge put out?

 

Backstage interview with the Andrade Family Office.

Or rather, Tony Schiavone is standing in the middle of an argument as The Butcher & The Blade yell at Private Party, and Private Party yells back, with Andrade El Idolo upset at them all. He has them all stop shouting! It’s enough! Listen here: Andrade is your boss, Private Party! Remember that! But Marq Quen says Private Party isn’t mad at Andrade, they’re mad at Butcher & Blade! The shouting starts again but Andrade has them all stop. Jose, you tell them. The Assistant explains that Private Party are the ones upsetting Andrade, Butcher & Blade. They may not like it, but Andrade is still their boss. So either shape up, or ship out!

The others leave, and Schiavone talks with Private Party alone. He usually doesn’t take sides in this, but… Oh, Matt Hardy walks in. Hardy tells Isiah & Marq that he’s sorry they’ve ended up in this situation. But what happened last week in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal felt right! They’re connected! They always have been. Andrade is way worse for them than Big Money Matt ever was. So they should quit, get out of the deal, and Hardy will be waiting. And this time, he promises them both that they’ll do it right. Will Private Party terminate their deal with the AFO to get the #HardyParty started right?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

With that open contract out on the tag titles, it seems the AFO jumped on it with not just one but TWO teams! Private Party AND The Butcher & The Blade are challenging The Acclaimed in a TRIPLE THREAT! Will Caster & Bowens survive the biggest first defense possible?

Plus, after their confrontation during the Lumberjack match, Willow Nightingale and Jamie Hayter will go 1v1! Then, as he fights his way towards Daniel Garcia’s ROH Pure Championship, Lee Moriarty takes on a returning Fuego Del Sol! And after his big win alongside Action Bronson for the Grand Slam, HOOK is back in action! Who will step to the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil next?

 

Ricky Starks VS Eli Isom!

The Absolute avenged his loss at All Out against “Powerhouse” Hobbs, but it took Lights Out to do it! Will Starks start getting that spotlight shining back on him here tonight?

The bell rings, Starks and Isom tie up, and Starks headlocks. Starks grinds the hold, but Isom wrenches free and headlocks back. Starks powers out the back and hammerlocks, but Isom elbows free! Isom run sin and forearm smashes in the corner! Isom whips corner to corner but Starks goes up and over. Things speed up, Starks barrels through Isom’s shoulder tackle to then SPEAR him down! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Isom up, for ROSHAMBEAUX! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

That was easy work for Starks, and he is absolutely back in the swing of things! Is this the start of a new chapter in the Book of Starks?

 

AEW looks closer at the drama filled feud of Jungle Boy, Christian Cage & Luchasaurus.

AEW shares footage from after Rampage: Grand Slam. Jack Perry was obviously pissed that after one of the hardest fought matches in his career, and one of the biggest victories in his entire life, Captain Charisma and his personal kaiju attacked. One of JB’s proudest achievements, he gets screwed over again by the two people he used to care about the most in AEW. But they can do whatever they want, he will get them both. Where JB used to hang their AEW World Tag titles on the wall, he will hang both their heads! Will Jungle Boy hunt down the wrestling dinosaur and his new master?

 

ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Bandido!

The Wizard, Le Champion, the Lionheart, is very proud of himself for becoming an EIGHT-TIME World Champion in his career. But because he is (supposedly) the most honorable man in AEW, he is willing to be a fighting champion. Will #THEOCHO barely last seven days? Or will The Most Wanted, one of the greatest luchadors in the world today, still be a former ROH World Champion?

Bobby Cruise makes the introductions, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly the best ROH champion ever!

Fans rally for Bandido at the bell, and Jericho offers the handshake. Bandido takes it to uphold the Code of Honor, and then Jericho turns it into some kind of secret handshake he’s coming up with on the spot. Then he flips Bandido off! Bandido DECKS Jericho for that! Jericho gets up but Bandido throws more hands. Bandido whips, Jericho reverses and then CLOBBERS Bandido! Jericho kicks Bandido around, drags him up and CHOPS him to a corner. Jericho CHOPS Bandido again, CHOPS him against ropes, and fans bring back the chant of “WE WANT PIZZA!” Jericho whips Bandido but Bandido handsprings through!

Jericho avoids the contact and rushes in, but Bandido uses that to throw Jericho up and out! Bandido then builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Jericho hits railing! Bandido resets, builds speed and FOSBURY FLOPS! Direct hit on Jericho and fans fire up! Bandido ROCKS Jericho, puts him in the ring, and he high-fives fans as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bandido hurries up the corner and he SKY TWISTERS to take Jericho down! Cover, TWO! Jericho hurries out of the ring and Bandido wonders what’s up. Jericho throws a tantrum, but Bandido goes out after him! They brawl with forearms, Jericho ROCKS Bandido but Bandido fires back! Bandido whips, Jericho reverses and Bandido hits steel steps! Jericho hurries into the ring, soaks up the heat, and fans give thumbs down. So Jericho flips them off! Jericho goes back out after Bandido, puts him in the ring, and he stomps Bandido around. Jericho sits Bandido up to rain down fists! Jericho paces and soaks up more heat before he drags Bandido up.

Jericho puts Bandido in a corner, CHOPS him down, then drags him back up. Jericho CHOPS Bandido in the corner again, but Bandido turns it around to CHOP back! And CHOP! And CHOP! And then CHOP!! Fans fire up with Bandido and he whips corner to corner. Jericho bounces off buckles and Bandido trophy lifts him! Bandido shows he has power on top of speed, and he SLAMS Jericho down! Cover, TWO! Jericho is still in this as Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally for Bandido and he fires off forearms on Jericho. Bandido whips, Jericho BOOTS him back, but then Bandido dodges Jericho again.

Jericho ends up on the apron, he hurries up top, and leaps, into a SUPERKICK! Bandido reels Jericho in, suplexes, holds Jericho up with one arm and he counts along with the fans! We go past ten to TWENTY! We’re still going! THIRTY! Then past that to FORTY!! And then the SLAM at SIXTY!! A full minute stall and fans are thunderous! Bandido staggers up and heads for a corner. Bandido climbs up, takes aim and gives us some Latino Heat! FROG SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but fans chant for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” Bandido drags Jericho back up, fires off forearms, then runs, but into a FLAPJACK!

Jericho runs to BOOT Bandido down! Jericho huffs and puffs and he drags Bandido up. Jericho puts Bandido in the corner to CHOP! And CHOP! And then whip to clothesline in the other corner! Jericho hoists Bandido up, CHOPS him, then climbs up after him. Bandido throws hands, Jericho and Bandido brawl, and fans still want pizza. Bandido SUPER GOURD BUSTERS Jericho down! Jericho stands, Bandido leaps, but into a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Bandido survives and Jericho is frustrated. Bandido goes to the apron and Jericho goes out after him. Jericho drags Bandido up, CLUBS him, and then he reels Bandido in.

Bandido holds the ropes to fight the suplex, but Jericho CLUBS away on him! Jericho keeps trying, Bandido throws more elbows, then he turns around to fire forearms! Jericho JABS Bandido’s already bloody nose! But Bandido RANAS Jericho to the floor!! Fans are thunderous again as both men are down and AEW goes picture in picture!

The ref checks on both men, and somehow they’re both okay to continue. Jericho and Bandido slowly stir, the ring count is climbing, and we’re at 5 of 10 with both men still down. Bandido and Jericho finally start to sit up, the count is 7 of 10, both Bandido and Jericho slide in at 9! Jericho crawls over to Bandido, drags him up by his hair, and CHOPS! Bandido CHOPS back! Jericho CHOPS, so Bandido CHOPS back. They CHOP back and forth, faster and faster, and fans fire up! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP and then stand to keep the CHOPS flying! Jericho eggs Bandido on, then brings him around, but Bandido CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS!

Jericho roars, CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, and then CHOPS Bandido off his feet! Jericho leans against the corner while clutching his stinging chest. Jericho drags Bandido up to CHOP again, and again! Bandido CHOPS in return! Dynamite returns to single picture one more time as Bandido CHOPS then SUPERKICKS! Jericho leans against ropes, Bandido snarls and fires off forearms! Bandido whips, Jericho reverses and CLOBBERS Bandido! Bandido goes to the apron, fans rally and Bandido keeps pace with Jericho to turn triangle jump into SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives and “This is Awesome!”

Bandido drags Jericho up, whips him to ropes, but Jericho denies the dropkick! LIONSAULT!! Just made it! Cover, TWO!! Bandido survives and Jericho is frustrated. Jericho drags Bandido up, throws some knees, and then he suplexes. Bandido slips out, shoves Jericho and gets around, CRUCIFIX DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives again and Bandido can’t believe it! The ref defends the count so Bandido reels Jericho in. Gut wrench to a torture rack, but Jericho blocks the knee! Jericho trips Bandido to get the WALLS OF JERICHO! Bandido endures and fans rally up! Bandido reaches out, crawls, but Jericho sits deep!

Bandido keeps fighting forward as the fans rally! Bandido gives it one more gasp, and he gets the ROPEBREAK! Fans fire up but Jericho thinks he’s won. Fans boo and the ref points it out to Jericho. Jericho is annoyed but he stomps at Bandido on the apron. The ref reprimands, Jericho lets off to drag Bandido up. Jericho deadlift SUPERPLEXES Bandido in! Jericho then hurries up top, but Bandido GAMANGIRIS first! Jericho sits back, Bandido climbs up after him, and Bandido throws forearms. Bandido stands Jericho up on the very top, for a scoop and SUPER FALL AWAY SLAM!!! Fans are electric as Bandido crawls to the cover, TWO!?!?!?

Philly is stunned! Jericho survives again, proving why he IS #THEOCHO! Fans love “A E DUB!” for this ROH title match, and Bandido fires forearms. Bandido gut wrenches again, torture racks, X KNEE!! Jericho leans on the ropes, Bandido fires up! BANG and run, flip to the BLACKJACK 21 PLEX!!! Bridging cover, TWO!?!?! Jericho survives and then he pokes Bandido in the eye! And he pulls the mask down! Jericho trips Bandido but Bandido drags Jericho into a cradle! TWO!!!! BOOT from Jericho, then a trip! LION TAMER!!! Bandido reaches out blindly but doesn’t know where the ropes are! Bandido taps, Jericho wins!!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by submission (still ROH World Champion)

Where’s the honor in that!? Jericho makes Bobby Cruise get in the ring to make the official announcement, and then he has Bobby hold the mic up for him. Jericho has the music cut to say the Ring of Jericho Era has begun! He is changing what ROH is, desecrate its legacy, destroy its legend, and beat every great champion that has ever held “The Ring of Jericho” title! Jericho will continue with BRYAN DANIELSON! October 12th, in Toronto, Canada, Jericho dares Bryan to fight him for the ROH World Championship! Jericho will destroy every ROH champion, commentator, referee and announcer! What?

LOW BLOW to Bobby Cruise!! AND A JUDAS EFFECT!! Jericho’s reign of terror over ROH begins tonight, but will the American Dragon be able to end it in two weeks?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite to keep things going from last week’s awesome Grand Slam events, as well as set up the anniversary and following events. We got a great opening segment from the JAS, and those purple suits honestly looked really good. Poor Luigi Primo, though. I don’t know if the bucket hat is supposed to mean something, but it does work as a disappointing gift for such a big night. Garcia of course pushes forward towards defecting from the JAS, and Bryan joining in was a good touch. Great match from Bryan VS Menard tonight, and Bryan & Garcia VS Jericho & Sammy is going to be awesome, and it will factor in greatly to the tiebreaker of Bryan VS Jericho.

Jericho VS Bandido was an amazing main event, but I had a feeling Jericho would win. Jericho wants to take on every former ROH World Champion but sets up the tiebreaker, I have a feeling he’s doomed his reign to only last until October 12th. At the same time, there could be any number of “sports entertainment” overbooking shenanigans going on that help Jericho retain. Jericho stating his mission, I would love to see him continue on to then face all those former world champions, such as Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Jay Lethal. Lethal is going to have a great match with Darby, but I feel like Darby is going to win that since it was promised to be truly 1v1.

Great stuff from the rest of the Blackpool Combat Club, such as Yuta confronting MJF and scaring him off to Moxley VS Juice in a great match. I had a feeling Moxley would win so that he can focus on Hangman Page in Cincinnati next. MJF will find a way past Yuta next week, and then he’ll be lurking in Cincinnati, that has to be the cash-in spot. Very good promo from JB to further the story with Christian Cage & Luchasaurus. JB will probably be the one to attack next as retaliation. JB VS Luchasaurus can happen for Full Gear, and Christian’s arm needing time to heal, there’s a chance this story goes all the way to the holidays in December.

Great promo from The Acclaimed and Keith Lee, and a great promo from AFO and Matt Hardy. That Triple Threat for the tag titles is going to be great, but Acclaimed will retain by using the dysfunctional AFO against itself. Then Hardy will support Private Party against Andrade, we can get a great Six Man Tag out of it. Starks of course wins that squash match, that match almost didn’t need to happen here but hey, Starks is still a fan favorite.

And while it was great to hear from Saraya again, something was just a bit awkward about the full women’s segment. Saraya and Britt got at each other pretty well, but did Saraya really need to make a jab at WWE? Especially after the changing of the guard over there and how things have already turned around for the better? Is Tony Khan gonna be petty about the WWE forever? I did appreciate that Saraya is already poised as a supervisor of the women’s division since she got to make the stipulation of the Lumberjack match. And that match was awesome stuff with some good stories set up, such as that match for Hayter VS Willow on Rampage.

Storm retaining makes sense and WOW that second rope piledriver. With Britt worrying about her nose, I am sure Hayter beats Willow and then Hayter really does get the next turn. Storm VS Hayter will be great, and maybe other Heels get to step up. But again, the one thing we need to start seeing is two women’s matches on Dynamite or this is all lip service like WWE gave us years ago with The Authority pinning the bad ratings and ideas on “Constable Corbin.” Quality like this is a great start, but we still need quantity, too.

My Score: 8.8/10

QUICK NOTES

Solid line up, and it is great to see Fuego Del Sol back in action. He had that scary situation months ago about the hole in his neck, so he’s clearly made a great recovery. I’m sure he’ll get a great win tonight, but I’m wondering where he’ll go in AEW now that he’s back.
