The Buy-In – 10 Man Tag: The Hardy Family Office VS Jurassic Express & Best Friends!

Big Money Matt has been racking up some receipts with Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, Chuck Taylor, Wheeler Yuta, and especially Orange Cassidy. But will having Private Party and The Hybrid2 be enough to keep Hardy’s enemies from collecting?

The teams sort out and the Kentucky Gentleman starts with Hardy, but Hardy is calling out Cassidy! He wants to “DELETE!” Freshly Squeezed so badly, he shoves Chuck at the corner! Chuck tags Yuta instead, he and Hardy tie up but Hardy knees low and shoves Yuta back at the corner! Hardy! Wants! Cassidy! Yuta looks to Cassidy, Cassidy doesn’t complain, so Yuta tags him in.

The Butcher is back!? The biggest mercenary on Hardy’s payroll CLOBBERS Cassidy! The Butcher then gets Cassidy up for the SWINGING URENAGE! But this isn’t the end, as the rest of the HFO regroups and sits Cassidy up. But Jurassic Express returns, and they’ve brought Dante Martin, the Varsity Blonds and members of the Dark Order with them! There are even more friends of the Best Friends than Hardy bet on! Will this turn into an all out war now? Oh wait, you GOT to give the people what they want! That’s the biggest group hug in AEW history!

 

Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year are up in the nosebleeds!

Lambert shouts into the mic, “I have to say about this company and all you idiots that make up its fanbase, but it was made crystal clear to me that when I pulled up to the arena that former UFC Heavyweight Champions, Andre Arlovski and Junior dos Santos, together with BMF Champion, Jorge Masvidal, and The Men of the Year, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky, are here for a little less talk and a lot more action!” Ethan Page says, “I love~ you~, Dan!” And All Ego is glad Lambert reached out to him and Scorpio. “Everyone knows the Men of the Year are two very handsome, fashionable men.” Scorpio adds, “They have eyes.

Ethan says the Men of the Year love to talk their trash, flap their gums and show off the Gift of Gab. Scorpio adds, “They have ears.” Ethan continues by saying, “But everyone on the roster already knows that The Men of the Year are extremely! Dangerous! Men!” Scorpio says “But sometimes, you have to take it to the next level.” That means stepping out of their comfort zones, “and back into the danger zone.” They’ll do that with their new friends, American Top Team! Lambert says they’ve got UFC fighters in the building, Scorpio’s got his new five-year extension signed, sealed and delivered, and Ethan is always looking to feed that ego. The only thing left is Lambert saying whose ass they kick and when!

Lambert asks if Masvidal thinks it’s necessary tonight, and Masvidal feels it is very necessary. So then, who will this arrogant crossover have in their crosshairs first?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Miro VS Eddie Kingston!

God’s Favorite Champion or not, the Bulgarian Brute has been the most brutal TNT Champion yet! But the Mad King knows a lot about getting brutal, so he’s ready to show there ain’t no favorites here! Will Kingston get his crown by dropping Miro on his head? Or will Miro at least redeem himself for getting dropped on Friday?

The introductions are made, Kingston is egging Miro on already but the belt is raised first. The bell rings and we see who’s just that much crazier!

Fans are thunderous already and Miro nods. Miro talks trash, Kingston talks trash, fans chant for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Miro gets annoyed and rushes in, but into a knee! Kingston facelocks but Miro holds off the DDT! Miro shoves, drop toeholds then goes for his camel clutch! Kingston slips out, wants the full nelson but Miro breaks free to bail out! Fans boo Miro as he paces and calms down. Kingston waits patiently, fans chant, “F him up, Eddie, F him up!” Miro returns, the two square off again, but Miro blocks the kick only to get a poke in the eye! Kingston CHOPS and CHOPS and has Miro in a corner for MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Kojima is here tonight…

Miro stops the chops, clinches Kingston but Kingston turns it around! EXPLODER! Miro bails out right away but Kingston keeps his cool. Kingston goes out after Miro with fans fired up behind him.

Miro drags Kingston up to RAM him into the post! Miro scoops Kingston again to RAM him into the other post!

Miro eggs Kingston on, Kingston fires off fast shots, but Miro DECKS Kingston with one! Miro then drops elbow after elbow before he covers, ONE!!

Fans fire up with Kingston’s toughness, but Miro fish hooks him into a chinlock! Fans rally as Kingston endures the squeeze. Kingston fights his way up, Miro squeezes tighter to bring him back down, but the fans are still behind Kingston. Kingston throws body shots, gets free and CHOPS again!

Both men are hobbling and feeling sore, but Kingston runs in! Miro dodges to fire off forearms into Kingston’s back over and over! The ref counts, Miro waistlocks but Kingston holds onto buckles!

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

The Mad King had a perfect strategy, but the ring is itself a variable no one can predict! Miro can barely hold up the title with how his arms feel from all that damage to his neck. Will his grip on the gold start to weaken from here on?

 

Jon Moxley VS Satoshi Kojima!

The Maniac knows all about the King of Cozy Style, and that’s partly why he’s pissed off! Only one man in all of NJPW was brave enough to accept this open challenge, and it was only the old guard that answered? Will Kojima prove he’s as crazy as Moxley says and find a way to win? Or will Moxley be the only one crazy enough to go all out in Chicago?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans are fired up already and Kojima offers a handshake. Given that press conference from earlier in the week, Moxley slaps the handshake away to flip Kojima off!

AEW Women’s World Championship: Britt Baker w/ Jamie Hayter & Rebel VS Kris Statlander w/ Orange Cassidy!

The Doctor has always seen herself as the face of the Women’s Division, the reason fans tune in to watch, and “the baddest bitch on the block.” It became hard to argue with her after she won this title of Hikaru Shida. But the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien isn’t here to argue, she’s here to fight! Will Statlander win the fight and give Britt reason to work on herself?

Backstage interview with Andrade El Idolo & Chavo Guerrero.

Alex Marvez asks El Idolo about how his scheduled match with PAC isn’t happening now because of apparent travel issues. We know Team Andrade has done this to Death Triangle before, is he going to claim he isn’t behind these particular issues? Andrade says he is here to fight. Do you think he wants to miss this big, amazing night? Andrade asks his assistant, Jose, if he was the one that cancelled Pac’s flight. Jose says no. Andrade asks Chavo if he was the one who cancelled Pac’s flight. Chavo plays dumb, saying he has no idea about that. Chavo doesn’t even know American Airlines’ number. Not that anyone said Pac was using American Airlines, just saying.

But it doesn’t matter why or how Pac is missing All Out, the point is Pac is scared of El Idolo! Everyone knows that, and the same things happened with the “poor little Lucha Brothers” before. Team Andrade has offered their services, if they don’t want to accept the help then that is on them. So no, they did not cancel the flights. But this Friday on Rampage, El Idolo VS Lil’ Pac. No more excuses. Andrade will even pay for the flight so that he can settle this with Pac! Will the Bastard be more than happy to accept that fight?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championship Steel Cage Match: The Young Bucks VS The Lucha Brothers!

From accepting Don Callis’ advice and seeing things his way, to having the cold spray monkey butler Brandon Cutler constantly running around, it has all led to this! Matt & Nick Jackson must now fight their way out of the steel to hold onto their gold! But when Penta El Zero M & Rey Fenix have #CeroMiedo, will that lead them to finally dethroning the Bucks?

The cage lowers and is secured in place, with escape NOT an option. To make the challengers’ entrance even greater, GANGSTA L and MUELAS DE GALLO are live and in person to rap the theme song! As for the Bucks, they of course have The Elite as their posse, but they’re kinda why there’s a cage. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, Callis joins commentary and the cage door is closed! Now we see how much blood, sweat and tears these blood brothers are willing to shed for glory and gold!

Fans are thunderous already for “CERO! MIEDO!” Fenix and Penta throw hands but the Bucks return them! The Lucha Bros get the edge and CLUB the Bucks down! The Lucha Bros whip, the Bucks dodge and start climbing! The Lucha Bros stop them, the Bucks kick them away, but Fenix runs and gets a boost to dropkick both Bucks down! Not that it matters, escape wouldn’t end this. The Lucha Bros put the Bucks in opposite corners, Penta KICKS Matt and Fenix CHOPS Nick. They whip the Bucks at each other, the Bucks dosido but the hermanos dodge and do the same! Penta runs at Nick, Fenix runs at Matt, GAMANGIRIS IN STEREO!

Penta keeps Nick down, Matt ROCKS Matt. Penta & Fenix double whip Nick, he goes to the apron and ROCKS Penta. Fenix runs in as Nick climbs, and SHOVES Nick into steel! Matt runs in but Penta pops him up to a headstand! Penta SUPERKICKS, then Fenix knuckle locks and CHOPS Matt! Nick returns the favor as he knuckle locks and CHOPS Penta! Fenix and Nick go to the same corner, go up and up and stare down, Fenix SUPER STEINERS Nick! Penta forearm smashes Matt, whips him to Fenix, fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY! WAZZUP!? Dropkick to Matt’s butt, cover, Nick breaks it! Fenix and Penta coordinate, UNO DOS TRES, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

The Final Fight: Chris Jericho VS MJF!

Even after the Herculean gauntlet of the Five Labours of Jericho, Le Demo God could NOT defeat Maxwell Jacob Friedman 1v1. But MJF saw the desperation in Jericho’s eyes when he asked for this match, and of course pounced on this opportunity! Will the Salt of the Earth rub salt in all the wounds when HE gets to be the one to say, “I retired Chris Jericho?”

Because he already sees himself as the new “king” of pro-wrestling, MJF of course wears a king’s robe out to the ring. However, fans fire up for the live guitar performance of Judas, courtesy of Fozzy’s Billy Gray!

CM Punk VS Darby Allin!

After seven years of everyone everywhere in pro-wrestling asking again and again, the Best in the World is finally getting back in the ring! And no better place to do it than in Punk’s backyard of Chicago! But Darby’s entrance starts with another masterful vignette. “Most people tiptoe through life, hoping they make it safely to death. – Earl Nightingale.” The body bag is back, and it’s got “BEST IN THE WORLD” written all over it. The bag is brought up into the air by a helicopter, where Darby is perched in the doorway. They fly together, then Darby drops out to go past the body bag. The Relentless One “lands” and makes his entrance to the ring!

The Icon sees him out, but lets him handle this one alone, just as he promised. Darby’s skateboard has half Punk, half skull on it, more imagery predicting a possible outcome for tonight. But as soon as Darby’s music stops, the chants of “C M PUNK! C M PUNK!” start up again. Cult of Personality plays and Chicago once again belongs to one man! Darby soaks up the moment just as much as anyone, and Punk decides to sit down with him! Fans cheer as the two stare down this way, “This is Awesome!” “Holy s*it!” Darby stands, takes off the jacket and shows the pant has expanded to cover half his body, not just his face! Punk likes that, and the bell rings!

Punk and Darby circle, tie up, and are in a collar ‘n’ elbow deadlock. Darby gets under to arm-drag Punk down, and Punk nods that Darby made a smart move. The two reset, circle again as fans rally and duel hard as they have all night, and Punk tests the waters with kicks. They tie up, Punk headlocks but Darby powers out, only for Punk to run him over with a shoulder! Darby scrambles away and Punk seems to be getting back into things. Punk and Darby circle as fans chant, “WELCOME BACK! WELCOME BACK!” Punk pretends like he doesn’t understand who that’s for and points between him and Darby. Of course fans cheer harder for Punk!

Punk and Darby feel things out again, tie up, and Punk headlocks. Punk grinds the hold, Darby powers up and wrenches to a hammerlock. Punk works on an escape but Darby spins through to hold onto the hammerlock! Fans rally and duel again as again Darby spins through with Punk to hold the hammerlock down. Punk tries to reach back, and he manages to snapmare but Darby rolls through again to keep the hammerlock! Darby uses his forehead for a point of leverage but Punk sits up. Punk gets to his feet, Darby schoolboys, ONE! Punk elbows Darby down and shakes out his arm. Fans cheer as Punk keeps up with Darby. Punk scoops and SLAMS Darby, covers, ONE!

Punk wraps onto Darby with a chinlock but Darby endures as Punk leans on him. Darby fights up, Punk shifts to a headlock but Darby powers out and follows to then shoulder tackle! Things speed up, Punk hurdles and runs but Darby drops and leaps, into a fireman’s carry! Darby gets right out of there to not even give Punk the GTS! Darby is a bit frustrated he got caught, but Punk patiently waits for Darby to come back. Punk appreciates the “YOU STILL GOT IT!” chants as Darby slowly returns. Darby and Punk reset, tie up, and Punk headlocks. Darby powers out, Punk blocks the hip toss to whip but Darby goes up to flying arm-drag! And back body block in the corner! Then another!

Darby fires up as Punk sits down, and Darby stands Punk up to whip him corner to corner. Punk reverses hard, and Darby gets POSTED! Darby falls out of the ring and writhes as the ref checks on him. Darby’s back already shows the welt from hitting the square steel but Punk goes out after Darby. Punk gets Darby in the ring and shoots the half, TWO! Darby is still in this but Punk goes right at that welt with a knee. Darby resists but Punk gets a partial Bow ‘n’ Arrow stretch. Fans rally and duel, Darby gets the ROPEBREAK! Punk stomps Darby as he lets off, then apologizes to the ref as he gets Darby up. BIG back suplex, cover, TWO!

Punk digs a knee into Darby’s back as he gets the arms for a motorcycle stretch. Fans rally, Darby endures, but Punk shifts to a chinlock. Darby fights up, throws body shots, runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Punk catches his breath, looms over Darby and brings him up by an ear. Punk gets around to put Darby in a cobra twist! Darby endures, fans rally and duel but Punk cranks on the chinlock part of the stretch. Darby fights free, throws body shots and forearms! Punk wobbles, Darby runs but Punk tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Punk goes right back to a chinlock to grind Darby down. Darby still endures as the fans still duel.

Darby fights up, but Punk gets him back in that cobra twist! Darby pries his way free, Punk CLUBS him in the ribs then whips him to ropes, but Darby turns things around to THROWBACK STUNNER! Both men are down and fans fire up! The standing count begins, Darby and Punk slowly rise at 3 and stand at 4. Darby throws SLAPPING strikes, runs, dodges and springboards to COFFIN SPLASH! Darby then gets Punk’s arm, wrenches it and steps through to La Magistrol! TWO, Darby runs in but into a fireman’s carry! Darby sunset flips it, TWO! Darby fires off strikes and runs in, CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Punk survives and fans are thunderous again!

Fans rally and duel more as Darby drags himself towards the corner. Darby climbs up but Punk hurries to shove him down! Darby is stuck up top but Punk climbs up behind him. Punk gets Darby up for a SUPER BACK- NO! Darby made it a crossbody! Cover, TWO!! Darby and Punk crawl around, Darby gets to a corner and stands to run in, jackknife cover! TWO as Punk bridges and spins, but then he fireman’s carries, G T S!! But Darby falls out of the ring!! Punk can’t believe he misjudged that one! But he lets the ring count climb, and it gets past 5! Darby still doesn’t move, but then it gets to 8 and Darby springs up to get in at 9!!

Punk keeps his cool and he says he’s going to end this one now. Punk stands Darby up, throws heavy forearms over and over, then puts Darby in a corner. Punk goes corner to corner, to SHINING WIZARD! And then he reels Darby in for a short arm LARIAT! Fans fire up as Punk says night-night! Punk goes back to Darby, drags him back up, but Darby is deadweight! Punk still drags Darby up, fireman’s carries again, but Darby throws elbows to the chin and neck! Darby brings Punk down with those shots and he keeps going! Fans are thunderous as Darby finally lets off. Punk drags himself to the apron but Darby builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit with that Coffin Tope!

But speaking of, Darby goes up top as Punk is on the outside. SUPER SWANTON BOMB to a standing CM Punk! Both men are down again but “THIS IS AWESOME!” as Darby puts Punk in the ring. Darby climbs up top with Punk in a drop zone! Darby mocks the night-night, and COFFIN DROPS but FLOPS as Punk sits up! Punk is clearly having a lot of fun now but Darby catches him to a ghost pin! TWO, and fireman’s carry! GO TO- NO! Darby trips Punk, ties up the legs, LAST SUPPER! TWO!?! Punk narrowly escapes but Darby runs in, into a wicked calf kick! Fans are thunderous again as Punk watches Darby go to a corner. Punk runs in but into BOOTS!

Darby runs in to hop up, but no throwback or Poison-Rana! Fireman’s to GO TO SLEEP!! Cover, Punk wins!!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

It was a true homecoming for Punk, and he earned this one from the Relentless young star! CM Punk tells the camera, “It’s not like I f**king forgot.” Seven years of waiting and wondering, and now no one has to doubt if Punk’s back! Sting returns, makes sure Darby is good, then offers a handshake to Punk. Fans cheer as Punk accepts it! They both then go to help Darby, and Punk assures Darby that he has Punk’s respect, too. Chicago sure shows their respect for Darby, but Darby wants to stand up on his own first. Darby gets to his feet with the ropes, Punk offers him a handshake, and Darby accepts it. What is next for all these icons, both past, present and future?

 

Paul Wight VS QT Marshall w/ The Factory!

The Giant said there was going to be no BS now that he was here in AEW, but there has been plenty of utter crap coming out of The Gifted and his stable of henchmen. After the Gunn Club shocked us all by turning on Wight for their own selfish reasons, has QT lucked out in not needing to face the World’s Largest Athlete? Or has all this only awoken the anger in this wrestling giant?

Wight makes his entrance and gets in the ring, and Aaron Solo(w) rushes at him! Wight catches him pretty easily and throws him right out! Nick Comoroto tries but Wight SHOVES him out! QT attacks, the bell rings and Wight grabs QT with both hands for a HEADBUTT! QT staggers away, Wight throws body shots on him in the corner, then rips open the fancy new Factory shirt to CHOP QT right on the chest! QT staggers away, stinging from that one, but Wight just clamps onto QT again. Wight hushes the crowd before he CHOPS QT again! QT crawls but Wight stands on his back! The ref counts, Wight hops off and then stalks QT back to a corner.

Fans fire up as Wight has QT up again, for another CHOP! And then CHOPS again! Wight whips QT out then into the corner, but QT boots back! QT runs to dropkick the legs out! QT throws off what’s left of his shirt to throw hands! Wight just shoves QT away but QT comes back to throw more hands! QT SHOTGUNS Wight down, then covers, TWO! And QT goes flying out of the ring! The Factory regroups, QT gets back in and runs at Wight, but Wight shoves away the cutter! Wight grits his teeth as QT stands up, and Wight rallies with big shoulders and clotheslines! Wight whips and back drops QT! Fans fire up as Wight roars, but Solo tries to grab at the Giant!

Wight drags Solo up the apron and onto the top rope, to CHOP him upside-down! Solo falls and flounders, Comoroto runs in but into the GIANT PUNCH! Wight runs to POUNCE Comoroto out of the ring! QT leaps from the top rope, into a choke grip! GIANT CHOKE SLAM! Cover, Wight wins!

Winner: Paul Wight, by pinfall

All the BS from The Factory didn’t even slow Wight down! Is Wight going to leave it at a great 1-0 debut? Or will he get hungry for some gold again?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“My old friend and rival, Minoru Suzuki. A marriage born out of pain, torture, and inflicting violence on one another.” Suzuki and Moxley in the ring is the best drug in the world, and Moxley should know cuz he’s tried them all. See, Moxley comes from a little town called Cincinnati, AEW will be there this Wednesday. “Do you know what we do with people like Minoru Suzuki in Cincinnati? Garden variety bullies.” Moxley says that on ol’ Beachmont Avenue, they BURY those bullies in the ground! Suzuki is no different! He stepped through the door, and Moxley is going to welcome him to #NastyNatti, aka the jungle! Will these two animals tear each other apart for Moxley’s personal homecoming?

 

Malakai Black speaks.

“You see, Dustin, I don’t want you to be calm. I want you to be as mad as humanly possible. Because they angrier you get, the more predictable you are. The more predictable you are, the bigger chance for you to slip up. And when you do… Well, you’re in the ring with me.” So just in case The Natural has calmed down some, allow Makalai to remind him of all the reasons he should be mad. Arn Anderson. Brock Anderson. Lee Johnson. And Dustin’s baby brother, Cody Rhodes. Malakai left Cody’s body all but lifeless, a crutch bent around his knee, and we have still yet to hear from him. Malakai wants Dustin to think about that as we near Wednesday. “Think about that when you realize, Dustin… That it’s time to pay the boat man’s toll.” Will the Natural’s ride be ended abruptly by the House of Black?

 

AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Christian Cage!

The Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and the leader of The Elite has become more than just a #BeltCollector. He’s become a force to be reckoned with, but also the most obnoxious jackass outside of perhaps MJF. Captain Charisma tried humbling Omega by taking the Impact World Championship from him, but that only enraged the egotistical AEW World Champion more. It is time to finally have it out for #PrettyPlatinum. It is time to finally settle scores and put this to rest. It is time to finally go All Out! Will Omega be able to hold on to the most important belt in his collection? Or will we be calling Christian “Captain Double Champion” here tonight?

The introductions are made, the top AEW belt is raised, and we see if history repeats itself!

Omega tries to circumvent everything by running at Christian before the bell! Christian dodges, the V-Trigger hits buckles and now the bell rings as Christian hooks the arms! Omega powers out of the Killswitch and wags his fingers. Omega pie faces Christian so Christian pie faces back. They start throwing slaps, then they start throwing haymakers in a true brawl! Fans fire up as Christian gets the edge then runs, into a SNAP RANA! Christian bails out, Omega takes a moment to revel in himself and then Omega builds speed. Omega slides, Christian stays clear and CHOPS him in return! Christian CHOPS Omega again, then he whips him hard into railing!

Christian fetches Omega to whip him hard into the railing again! The ref wants Christian to go to the ring so he does, but to climb up the corner! Omega staggers, Christian SUPER CROSSBODIES! Direct hit and both men are down! Callis coaches Omega up but Christian is after him first. Fans rally, Callis barks at Christian but then scurries away. Christian refreshes the count to then ROCK Omega. Christian whips, Omega reverses and Christian runs into steel steps! Omega gets into the ring to refresh the count before he fetches Christian. Omega looks under the ring, tells the ref to shut up about it, and then pulls out a table!

Omega drops the table onto Christian, then goes up to the apron while Callis distracts the ref. Omega LEAPS off the apron to DOUBLE STOMP the table into Christian! The table still splinters but Christian is stuck under the wreckage! Omega says, “Oops! Did I do that?” Omega and Callis now bring out another table together! They set it up and the ref reprimands them but also starts the ring count. Omega drags Christian up, pretends he can’t hear the fans, but Christian blocks the suplex! Omega still tries, but Christian snap suplexes Omega to the floor! The ref gets frustrated and tells them to get in the ring.

Christian puts Omega in, runs and CHOPS him against ropes! Omega staggers about, Christian CHOPS more then whips. Omega reverses, Christian holds ropes, and he lets Omega back flop from his dropkick! Christian goes for the legs, wants a Cloverleaf, but Omega thumbs him in the eye! The ref reprimands but Omega runs in and INVERTED BULLDOGS Christian! Cover off the “slam dunk,” TWO! Omega clamps onto Christian with a chinlock and grinds him side to side! Christian endures, fans rally up but Callis barks for Christian to quit. Omega tries to make it a camel clutch but Christian keeps his arms free. Omega JAMS his elbow into Christian’s head and then puts him in a corner.

Omega CHOPS Christian, digs his boot into Christian’s throat, then lets off as the ref counts. Omega brings Christian around, back suplexes high and hard, then covers. TWO, and Omega is annoyed. Christian gets to a corner, Omega storms over but Christian has a leg guard. Omega stomps through it, gets Christian up to CHOP him again and again! Omega hoists Christian up top, CHOPS and CLUBS him more, but Christian fires off haymakers! Christian wants a DDT but Omega SHOVES Christian to the floor! Fans boo as Omega goes out to fetch Christian, but again the ref wants this in the ring. Omega and Callis inspect railing nearby and find a pretty steady one.

Omega jumps up but whoops! Bit of a slip! Omega is fine and laughs it off, he just has to be a bit more careful. Omega turns around to go again, MOONSAULT to knock down Christian! “Let’s face it, I meant to do that.” Omega puts Christian in and covers, TWO! Christian gets up, shoves Omega and eggs him on. Omega SLAPS Christian around, SLAPS through the guard, then brings Christian up. Christian hits back with body shots, uppercuts, then whips Omega corner to corner. Omega reverses hard and Christian bounces off buckles! Fans rally and duel as Omega gets Christian up, AOI SHOUDOU USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!!

Omega keeps his cool and even applauds himself as he steps on Christian to go to the corner. Omega climbs up top, aims, but Christian trips him up! Omega lands on his best bout machine and Christian ROCKS him with an uppercut! Christian climbs up, and SUPER STEINERS Omega down! Fans fire up as both men are down but Callis grows worried. A standing count begins, the fans still duel, and Omega sits up at 3. Christian follows, the two slowly stand and the hands start flying! Omega JABS, Christian uppercuts, repeat! Omega JABS more and more, then shakes out his hand from hitting too hard!

Omega stands Christian up, whips him to a corner and runs in, but Christian dodges to climb up and rain down fists! Omega stops him at 5 and has the Electric Chair! Christian slips out, shoves Omega back into the corner and finishes up the punches! Christian gets another 15 for 20 total, then he stands on Omega at the ropes! Christian slingshots to UPPERCUT! Omega wobbles, Christian goes up top but Omega gets under the leap. Christian ducks the Polish Hammer to trip Omega up but again Omega fights off the Cloverleaf with fingers to the eyes! The ref reprimands, Christian holds on but Omega kicks him away! Christian bounces off buckles into a fireman’s carry!

Omega (and fans) say, “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” But then Christian slips out and hits a REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Omega survives again but fans chant “HE ESCAPED!” in reference to Christian. Christian aims at Omega from the corner, runs in at Omega but into a KNEE! Fans fire up and Callis is relieved as Omega gets Christian back up. Omega reels Christian in, gets him up, but Christian slips out to fire off hands! Omega RAMS Christian into the corner, fires off more, then CHOPS! Christian ROCKS Omega with another uppercut, then climbs up to reel him in. TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Omega survives again but Christian keeps focus.

Omega staggers up, Christian hooks the arms but Omega elbows out this time. Omega WHEEL KICKS Christian in the back and puts him in the corner! Omega goes corner to corner and V-TRIGGERS! But Omega isn’t done, he gets Christian up for a full nelson, SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Christian sits up and sputters, then falls over as Omega gets up again. Fans want that “One More Time!” so Omega full nelsons to SNAP DRAGON again! Omega grins as Christian sputters and flounders. Omega aims his finger gun, but Christian aims his middle finger. Omega hits a THIRD SNAP DRAGON! BANG, V-TRIGGER!! Christian is on the apron but Omega pulls him into the ropes!

The ref counts, Omega lets go and stomps Christian into the apron now. Omega goes out, he and Callis laugh as Omega stands Christian up. The table is nearby but Christian holds onto ropes! The ref counts, Omega keeps trying but Christian holds on. Omega CLUBS Christian, tries the full nelson again, but Christian fights free! Christian throws elbows, turns things around and has the arms! But Omega POSTS Christian, then Electric Chair lifts! Christian fights free and HOTSHOTS Omega! Christian then SPEARS Omega off the apron and THROUGH the table!! Fans lose their minds while Christian writhes and Callis fans Omega with his suit jacket.

Both men are down as fans chant, “This is Awesome!” Christian and Omega slowly rise, the ring count passes 5 of 10, and Callis gives Omega a hand. Both men are in at 8 of 10 and fans are thunderous as this continues. Christian SPEARS Omega from behind! And then SPEARS him again!! Cover, TWO!!! Omega survives a total of three Spears but Christian isn’t done there. Christian climbs up and FROG SPLASHES onto knees! Omega saves himself and he hurries to go after Christian. Omega tries to gut wrench but his back is bothering him too much! Callis coaches Omega on and Omega POINT-BLANK V-TRIGGERS! Omega talks trash before he V-TRIGGERS again!

Omega double finger guns, runs in, but Christian blocks to fire off uppercuts! V-TRIGGER! Ripcord and FINAL FLASH! Christian is in a heap but Omega gets him up, double underhooks but no Tiger Driver! Christian back drops, Omega sunset flips but Christian rolls through and gets the legs! Omega flails and reaches to resist but Christian drags Omega away for the CLOVERLEAF! Callis signals to the back, and here come the Good Brothers! The ref is busy with Callis as Christian shoulders Karl Anderson down, but Luke Gallows grabs Christian’s arm! How can the ref not know this?! Omega runs in, Christian dodges and Gallows takes the V-Trigger!

Christian has the arms, Omega pops free to Electric Chair but Christian slips out to KILLSWITCH!! Cover, TWO?!?! Omega survives Christian’s best shot this time, having felt this from the AEW Rampage premiere! Fans rally up as Christian drags Omega to a corner. Christian puts Omega on the top rope but Callis himself gets in the ring? Christian runs the carney SOB off, goes back to Omega, and he ROCKS Omega with an uppercut. Christian climbs up, hooks Omega up again, but Omega digs fingers into Christian’s face! Omega goes to Electric Chair from up there?! SUPER ONE WINGED ANGEL!?!? Cover, Omega wins!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

Callis celebrates with his cash cow- er uh, surrogate son as he retains the top title! The Young Bucks return to celebrate with Omega despite their own loss, and The Elite still stands tall. The Good Brothers do the rest as they beat up Christian on Omega’s behalf! The Bucks even join in, but here come the Jurassic Express! They’re friends of Christian’s but are heavily outnumbered! Omega even CLOBBERS Luchasaurus with the title belt! Omega gets a mic to say, “Are you finally starting to understand, Chicago? Best in the World this, Best in the World that. I don’t care if you have hometown heroes. I don’t care where you came from. NO ONE is on my level!”

Omega says he’s proven it day in, day out, month in, month out, year in and year out! It doesn’t matter where he goes, there’s always one thing for sure: “When it comes to this AEW belt, the only people that would ever have a chance to beat me, ever, are either not here, already tired, or they are already dead.” But wait! The lights go down! And when they come back up… it’s ADAM COLE?!?! Chicago goes nuts as Cole is now ALL ELITE, BAYBAY!! Talk about a shock to the system! Omega isn’t sure what to make of this since last time these two were face to face, “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” was trying to take his spot.

Fans are losing their minds, and Cole SUPERKICKS Jungle Boy!! Cole isn’t here to take anyone’s spot, he wants to be in the club again! The Bucks kiss Cole on the cheeks and Omega is relieved. “In the worlds of the all mighty Steve Urkel, ‘Did I do that?'” People thought he was legitimately afraid, didn’t they? Cole’s one of their best buds! Tell ’em, Adam! “Who’s ready for story time with Adam Cole, baybay? Boys and girls, it’s official: The Elite is the most dominant faction in the history of this business! And ain’t no chance in hell anybody’s gonna stop us!” Fans love the reference and Omega says, “That’s what I call a happy ending.”

So the only thing left is to send the fans home happy. Without any further ado, good-bye and- Wait. Is that FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIE?! It’s Daniel… No no no. It’s BRYAN FREAKIN’ DANIELSON!!! Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” as AEW just got that much bigger! Bryan gets in the ring and stands with Christian and Jurassic Express! Maybe now The Elite has someone on their level here! Omega bails out and the brawl begins!! YES KICKS over and over for Nick Jackson while Christian, JB and Luchasaurus clear the ring! GERMAN SUPLEX for Nick! TAIL WHIP for Gallows! Nick flounders up, fans fire up as Bryan aims, RUNNING KNEE!! What was that about dominance?!


My Thoughts:

Well, we can all say how we felt about All Out 2021, if it looked good, bad, somewhere in between on paper, and I myself felt certain moves weren’t for the best. But in actual execution, AEW cannot be doubted when it comes to giving us pro-wrestling gold. Well, I still feel high levels of cringe with this Dan Lambert stuff. He’s just yelling while using needless reverse psychology to make fans like AEW more when so much is still so good. For one, when a kickoff show match is as good as anything on the main card, that is when you know a company knows what they’re doing as far as their PPV events.

Well, okay, Paul Wight whooping The Factory should’ve been the Buy-In because it was the least of the main card. Hell, that should’ve been on Dynamite and then we could’ve gotten Malakai Black VS Dustin Rhodes here and now so if Cody’s coming back, he’d do it on a PPV. So okay, two points during this show that didn’t feel any different from what WWE might do, but AEW isn’t and will never be “perfect” either. These are just two weak points that stand out on an honestly AWESOME card. Miro VS Kingston was an awesome opener, Moxley VS Kojima was the perfect follow-up, they fired the crowd up after that bit of a break after the Buy-In.

Baker VS Statlander being a kind of audible to me where we should’ve had maybe Baker VS Rosa here as a culmination of things, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But because Statlander is a top level competitor, and because of the character work from just Cassidy where he got so fired up for once, that really brought this match alive here. Britt with that shoutout to her man was a great bit of foreshadowing, she’s a master at that stuff. Britt of course retains because as I’ve been saying, we are going to get and need to have Britt VS Rosa again. But to a great surprise, Ruby Soho got to be the Joker AND win the Casino Battle Royale. A title feud is a great way to get Ruby going for fans to be reintroduced to her now that she isn’t in the WWE, but it’d be almost too much of a shock if Ruby took the title.

Tonight’s steel cage match was perhaps the best cage match in history. Because with it not allowing escape, they didn’t overly focus on the cage itself, and we just ended up with an amazing tag match that was also in a cage. Okay, it was odd for Bucks to try an escape when it was clearly stated escapes don’t matter, but perhaps that’s a nod to cage match instincts based on tradition. And in the end, the right decision was made, Lucha Bros get the belts and usher in a new chapter for the tag division. The Final Fight was of course not the final fight for Jericho, but I do really like that they made us think MJF was gonna win on a technicality. In order to think outside the box in wrestling these days, you have to wait until the last second to reveal the trick, and that was a great one.

Punk VS Darby was just about what I expected it to be and what it should’ve been. Punk was getting into the swing of things again, trying to build up to a good speed given Darby is so fast without even trying, and we got a good back and forth on Darby’s reckless nature working in his favor but then also costing him at times. Of course Punk wins, this is his return in his hometown, you GOT to give- Oh wait that’s Best Friends. Well no, you still give the people what they want for a time like this. All Out may’ve been hyped up mostly about this match, but the ups and downs of this can’t take away from the rest. This was a solid match with a lot of fan excitement, and welcome back, Punk.

Again, Wight VS QT was whatever, but I appreciated the promo time given to Moxley and Malakai to hype up this Wednesday in Cincinnati. Moxley VS Suzuki and Malakai VS Dustin are reasons to watch in themselves, that’s going to be a great night. And then the main event here, it felt a lot faster and quicker than it perhaps was, but that’s because there weren’t as many shenanigans as usual. Which makes sense, the Bucks were battered and Cutler had his time to shine with them. Omega wins here, as I figured he would, but how amazing it is to see that both Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson/Daniel Bryan chose AEW right now. Cole rejoining The Elite and Bryan standing against them is perfect to give even more momentum to year three. We honestly could be in the midst of a pro-wrestling turning point and not know it yet.

My Score: 9.6/10

Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal!

Another year, another battle for that coveted $150,000 diamond ring! But things are a little different, as Maxwell Jacob Friedman, our NEW AEW World Champion, has the prerogative to not participate in this match. Instead, think of this more as a #1 contender’s battle royal with the winner getting to choose when and where they face MJF for that ring. Ricky Starks vows that when he wins this match, he’ll make next week’s title match into a Winner Takes All! Will this be an Absolute Victory for Ricky Starks?

The refs reprimand, Moriarty and Morrissey back off, leaving Ethan, Hardy, Starks and Dean as our final four. Hardy drags Starks up to give him a SIDE EFFECT! Fans boo, but then Ethan tells Hardy to stop doing his V1 and raise Ethan’s hand in victory. But Ethan hasn’t won yet! Hardy says, “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” and then Ethan tells him to get Starks up. Hardy does as told, The Firm mugs Starks, and then they put him on the ropes.

Starks holds on as both Hardy & Ethan lift, but Dean makes the save! Dean fires off hands on Ethan! Hardy goes after Dean, but Dean fires off hands on Hardy! Dean UPPERCUTS Hardy but Ethan CLUBS Dean! Ethan whips Dean, Dean gets around, FLOAT-OVER DDT! Dean kips up and fans fire up! Stokely is upset but Dean drags Ethan up to throw him up and over! Ethan holds on desperately and Hardy kicks Dean! TWIST OF FATE! Ethan shouts to throw Dean out and Hardy tells Ethan to do it. Ethan says fine, he drags Dean up and tosses Dean to ELIMINATE him!

Winner: Ricky Starks (#1 contender to the Dynamite Diamond Ring)

But to rain on the parade already is MJF! The AEW World Champion and #TripleB, the Big Burberry Belt, are here with a mic as fans boo hard as they can. The fans then cheer on Starks and MJF smirks. MJF tells Starks, “I’ll be with you in one second.” MJF then says, “Bryan Danielson, a little birdy told me you didn’t wanna show up tonight, and I think I know the real reason why. The real reason why is because you’re terrified of me. And I don’t blame ya, bud. After what I did to your boy, Willy Reegs, I’d be scared, too.”

Fans boo but MJF says, “Because I’m a bad, bad man. And that’s why in a week from now, I’m gonna be a FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, F-F-F-FOUR-TIME beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion. And I will still be the holder of the grandest prize of ’em all, the Triple B, baby! Now Richard, people seem to really like you around here, huh?” Fans cheer Starks on again, and MJF says “They talk about you like you’re some underutilized god of professional wrestling. And trust me, you are very talented, you really are. But you wanna know the truth, bud? Here’s the truth, Absolute.” Fans tell MJF to STFU but he just shrugs that off.

MJF says the truth is that in comparison to MJF, Starks is the Absolute drizzling sh*t! Or should MJF say, “You’re a roody poo candy ass!” After all, Starks stole literally everything else from that guy. But no offense, Richard, you’re just “a Dollar Store Dwayne.” So MJF will call Starks “The Pebble.” So here’s what happens next week in the main event of Dynamite, little Pebble. Fans chant for the “PEBBLE~! PEBBLE~!” MJF says he’s gonna put The Pebble in his pocket, hop in his brand new Porsche, because unlike all the “simple-minded humanoids” of Austin, MJF is rich. MJF will drive Pebble to the nearest body of water, take him out of his pocket, and skip “your scrawny little pigeon-toed ass all the way back to Billy Corgan’s NWA so you can wrestle on YouTube where you belong!”

Fans boo but Starks just smirks. MJF says “Facts don’t care about your feelings, Texas!” But MJF doesn’t care that Starks is Absolute, because MJF is a Generational Talent, and his Reign of Terror has only just begun. MJF soaks up the heat and then Starks pushes right past him to get a mic of his own. Fans cheer on Starks but MJF tells them all to shut up. Starks tells “Maxi Pad”, which fans now chant at MJF, that he should’ve expected a fifth-rate Roddy Piper to come out here and try to steal the spotlight. Oh~, he trashed the city! OH~! He trashed the fans! How much more shtick does MJF got? Cuz the low hanging fruit is running dry!

Starks says every week, MJF walks out here smelling like paint thinner and ass, having spray tanned his eczema to where if he took his shirt off, his back would look like he laid on an ant colony for seven hours. MJF has his crappy shoes, pants that are never ironed, a shirt that is too small, that stupid scarf, and that even dumber haircut, and he acts like he’s better than Starks?! Give us a break!! Fans are fired up hearing that! “Everything about you screams, ‘Cheap.’ The cheap suits, the cheap shoes, the cheap heat. Oh my God, and you are our new AEW Champion, huh? Well here’s the thing. With that AEW Championship comes a big responsibility that you know nothing about!

“The difference between you and me is that when these people got behind me, I gave them a reason to keep going. When they put faith in you, you let them down. When Regal put faith in you, you let him down. But brother, when it comes to Ricky, I delivery on time, every time, every night, every week, every month! And you can take your little ass to Greece for three months because oh~, you didn’t get paid enough! Oh~, you got out politicked by somebody smarter than you! But the fact remains is that I’ve been here, busting my ass. You wanna talk responsibility? Let’s talk about the fact that you avoid responsibility! You avoid any type of pressure.

“I show up to sign meet ‘n’ greets, where you, you don’t care! You just blow it off because hey! Everybody hates Max, so he has nothing to lose, right? Yeah, well, guess what, buddy? There comes a lot of responsibility when it comes to people actually liking you. And beside your nose being a lot darker than the rest of your body, me on the other hand, I live with dignity, I live with respect. You know nothing about that! When I lived in my car in South Austin, guess what I was doing? I was grinding! I knew the responsibility of taking care of myself! When it comes to that woman right there, it’s MY responsibility to get her a car, to get her a house.

“And you think because you paid people, because you kissed ass, that Maxwell ‘I’m better than you,’ you can get whatever you want? Please, gimme a break.” Fans are all fired up! Starks tells MJF that next week is a BIG deal. Starks is putting up and shutting MJF up for once in his miserable, narcissistic, punk-ass little life! MJF doesn’t deserve the title but Starks does! Wrestling on YouTube? Guess what? Been there, done that, busted his ass to get here! He never needed a name to make it here, and he doesn’t need one to beat MJF’s ass! He is Ricky Starks, he is stand ten toes down right here.

Next week, Starks smacks that mole of MJF’s neck, stomps a new hole right into MJF, and then he takes that title! Fans are thunderous for Starks as he says he’s doing MJF a favor he’s never had done in his life: Starks takes the responsibility off this “little boy’s” plate. MJF LOW BLOWS Starks! Fans boo as MJF takes off the belt, the scarf, and brings out the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF puts the ring on, takes aim, and fans shout “F YOU MAX!” But Starks dodges to SPEAR!! Fans are THUNDEROUS as MJF falls out of his shoes and then falls out of the ring! Starks holds up the world title, will he be holding that and the Dynamite Diamond Ring at the end of Winter is Coming?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“May 12th, 2021 was when I lost the TNT Championship. From that time ’til now, I feel like a lot of people have all said to me, ‘Darby Allin is being slept on. Darby Allin is forgotten about.’ Well it’s up to me to wake everyone up, and I’m gonna win that TNT Championship. I said that this crowd chants one thing, ‘Joe is gonna kill~ you.’ Well Joe, you’re gonna have to bury me with that TNT Championship, because I am not leaving Austin, Texas without it.”

Samoa Joe responds.

“Darby Allin, the curious little dead boy. I know exactly what you see when you look at me. You see a crucible that you wanna put yourself through. You see the violence that I inflict and you say to yourself, ‘That is a trial I can endure.’ Well, Darby, tonight you’re gonna learn that curiosity has a price that is about to get real expensive.” Will the Relentless Underdog put it all on the line just to get back that title? Or will he fail to dethrone the King of Pro-Wrestling Television?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“You think last week got a little outta hand? I don’t. In fact, I’m starting to really, really like The Cowboy, Hangman. Because he fell off his horse, dusted himself off, and got right back in the saddle, and he did his talking with his fists. There’s not enough of that around here. There’s too much talking. This is All Elite Wrestling, not All Elite Talking. There is no Blackpool Microphone Club. This is COMBAT! This is the sport of kings! Tonight, myself, Wheeler, Claudio, this Weekend at Final Battle, this Friday night on Rampage, we bring back 100 proof, in-your-face, ass-kicking wrestling! Jericho Appreciation Society. I’m so over the Jericho Appreciation Society.

“I’m gonna be out there tonight, just to make sure there’s no sports entertainment shenanigans. And this weekend, we put the JAS in our rearview mirror for good! Hangman Page, you want another piece? You know where to find me.” The Maniac heads out, but will he be able to focus on the JAS with the Cowboy coming for him?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS Darby Allin!

#TwoBeltJoe has been intimidating and brutal even when he’s had no belts. How much more vicious will he become in order to keep his throne as King of TV?

The introductions are made, the TNT title is raised, and we see if Darby wins, or even survives!

The bell rings and fans rally as Darby and Joe stare down. Fans do sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Joe steps up to Darby, daring him to do something. So Darby fires off fast hands! Joe puts Darby in a corner, but Darby dodges him to fire off hands again! Joe shoves Darby away, but Darby SHOTGUNS Joe out of the ring!

Fans are torn but Joe soaks it all up. Joe goes back for Darby, and he tears up the floor mats! Joe drags Darby up and smacks him off the apron. Darby flounders around in a daze, but Joe drags him back up. Joe puts Darby in the ring, just to drag him out after refreshing the ring count. Joe then hits Darby with a BIG back suplex to the floor! Darby writhes, but at least that was a padded part. Joe refreshes the count himself now, and he drags Darby back up. Joe brings Darby to the bare patch now, and fans boo while the ref counts. Darby fights the lift but Joe still gets Darby up! Darby bends Joe’s fingers to get free!

Darby runs in, but Joe POWERSLAMS Darby to the bare concrete!! Joe shouts at Darby, “Do you wanna die, Darby?! HUH!?!” The ref checks Darby while AEW goes picture in picture.

Joe leaves Darby behind while he clutches an arm and his ribs. Joe returns, having refreshed the count, and he puts Darby in the ring. Joe stalks Darby, mockingly applauds, and then drags Darby up. Joe CHOPS Darby and he flops down into a corner. Joe stands on Darby’s neck, the ref counts, and Joe lets off at 4. Joe smirks as he paces around. Darby drags himself up in a corner but not very far. Joe drags Darby up but Darby throws body shots! Darby runs, but Joe CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Joe is fired up and he drags Darby into a neck wrench! Darby endures, even as Joe looms over him. Joe throws Darby down but fans rally up.

Darby flounders about and it amuses Joe. Darby kicks back, manages to kick harder, and he BOOTS Joe away! Darby stands to throw more body shots, but Joe HEADBUTTS Darby down! Joe snarls, he drags Darby back up, and he dumps Darby to the apron. Joe drags Darby up as Dynamite returns to single picture. Joe JABS Darby, and then runs him side to side to POST him! Fans lose their minds again and Joe pretends he can’t see where Darby went. Doc Sampson checks Darby and the ring count starts. Fans count along while Joe just strolls around the ring and flexes. Darby is somehow okay to continue, and he crawls his way over at 5 of 10.

Darby flounders up at 7 and in at 8! Fans cheer but Joe is annoyed. Joe asks Darby what more has to happen. Joe kicks him around, Darby gets mad. Darby SLAPS Joe and it staggers him! Darby runs, gets around, but Joe hits an atomic drop! And then runs to BOOT Darby down! Then he SENTONS! Cover, TWO!! Darby is still in this though he goes to the apron, and Joe can’t believe it! But then Joe builds speed! But Joe has to bail out as Darby slides back in! Darby PLANCHAS, but into a fireman’s carry! Darby fights free to RAM Joe into steel steps! Darby then goes up the corner for a SUPER COFFIN DROP!! Both men are down and fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Darby staggers about, but he pushes Joe into the ring. Darby keeps moving, COFFIN- NO, the splash is caught to a SLEEPER! But Darby drops to KICK Joe away! Darby slips around, THROWBACK STUNNER!! Joe stays up so Darby hops on, CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!!! Joe survives but Darby has new life! Fans are giving a standing ovation as Joe and Darby rise. Joe goes to a corner, Darby runs in but into the URENAGE! Joe drags Darby up and puts him on the top rope. But Darby claws Joe’s face! Joe CHOPS Darby, climbs up after him, and hoists Darby up. But Darby BITES Joe’s forehead!! Joe falls back, Darby adjusts, COFFIN DROP!! Into the COQUINA CLUTCH!!!

Darby flails, he reaches out, but the sleeper and body scissors squeezes tight! Darby has a wild look in his eyes, until those eyes roll back! Darby is OUT, Joe wins!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (still AEW TNT Champion)

Darby fought his heart out, but we are still in the #TwoBeltJoe Era! Darby manages to stand up again, and he says he’s not dead! Joe has to put him down for him to stop! Darby dares Joe to keep fighting, but Joe HEADBUTTS Darby down! Joe grabs Darby’s own skateboard and he brings it over. Fans boo as Joe scares off the ref with the board! Joe then drags Darby up, puts the board down wheels up, and he puts Darby on the corner. Joe tucks Darby in! MUSCLE BUSTER on the wheels!!! Darby isn’t even moving, but Joe still puts the COQUINA CLUTCH back on!! The ref reprimands, more refs rush out but HERE COMES WARDLOW!!

Wardlow rushes to the ring and Joe runs away! Fans cheer on “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” as he reminds Joe that they’re not through with each other! Joe moves on to ROH Final Battle to defend his ROH World Television Championship against Juice Robinson, will Joe make it through The Booster only to find Wardlow’s World waiting for him?

 

Backstage interview with Kip Sabian and Orange Cassidy.

Tony Schiavone says there is a No Physicality Agreement in place as these two are here to talk. What is on Cassidy’s mind? Cassidy doesn’t know what Kip is doing, but he doesn’t need to do this. If he wants a title shot, just ask. Kip says, “How convenient, my sweet little Clementine. You wait until an unprovoked attack by Dustin Rhodes. I’m hurt. You just don’t want me at my best.” Cassidy says if Kip isn’t gonna fight this Friday on Rampage, then find someone who can. Kip ponders the idea, and heads out. Cassidy asks Schiavone if that’s a yes. Seems so. Then who will crazy Kip find as a Superbad proxy to take on the All-Atlantic Champion?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Initially, what started out as a deliberate desecration of the legacy of ROH has now led me to become the greatest ROH Champion of all time. Oh, the irony. Claudio, you don’t have the belief that you can beat me when it counts and become the ROH World Champion once again. Isn’t that true? That is why I’m gonna beat you at Final Battle, and it is why you’re gonna have to join the Jericho Appreciation Society. But Claudio, I am telling you this right now, it is going to be the best thing for you. I am looking so forward to taking you under my wing, and most importantly, I am looking so forward to beating you at Final Battle. I’ll see you then, Claudio. All Honor The Ocho.”

 

Jake Hager & Daniel Garcia w/ Sammy Guevara VS Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta w/ Jon Moxley!

Speaking of the war between JAS and BCC, another battle happens here in Austin! Will “Rock Hard” Hager & the “Dragonslayer” use sports entertainment to gain the momentum before the Final Battle? Or will the Swiss Superman & Decoder use a pro-wrestling solution on their JAS problem?

The teams sort out and Yuta starts against Garcia in a preview of their ROH Pure Championship rematch set for Saturday. They circle, then Garcia tags to Hager. Hager and Yuta circle, but then Hager has everyone hold on. Because he’s brings out the purple bucket hat, and throws it to Claudio! Hager says Claudio needs to get used to wearing that.

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, by pinfall

Fans fire up and Moxley joins his brothers in the club to celebrate! Tony Schiavone joins them all to interview them. He knows they just got a big win ahead of a big night on Saturday, but they have to talk about what happened at Full Gear. Here is an interview Schiavone did with William Regal a few weeks back that might explain some things.

The footage plays and Schiavone talks with his “long time friend,” Regal. Regal says it will be 30 years in January. Full Gear was unbelievable, but Schiavone wanted to know about how all that transpired. Regal told Schiavone before that “people are only going to see this if something bad happens to me. And when you’re somebody like me, and spent your life being as horrible as I have, you’re always expecting something bad to happen.” Schiavone says Regal is the Villain of Villains. Well, Regal took great exception to what MJF did to Schiavone. And MJF seems to be made about emails and this and that, so Regal just gave MJF what he wanted.

MJF is world champion now. But do you know that saying, “Be careful what you wish for?” Because now, everyone in the company will be chasing MJF. Regal realized a few months ago that the three veteran members of the Blackpool Combat Club don’t need Regal around anymore. He’s “surplus to requirements.” But he knew they wouldn’t let him go, either. But he needed to show them why they don’t need him, and why they can teach Wheeler Yuta how to become the greatest professional wrestler in the world, because they’ve all got that capability. “But you have to lead by example.”

So hopefully, and Regal knows he will, because Moxley is a very calculating man, Moxley will understand this. “The reason I did what I did, and to lead by example, was to teach you the final thing that I could ever teach you. Always stay one step ahead, and make sure you always keep eyes in the back of your head. I’m Blackpool Combat Club ’til the day I die. Fellas, it’s been emotional.” Lord William Regal’s message ends, and Schiavone says that was two weeks ago, before what MJF did. He knows they’re all a bit speechless, but does anyone have a comment?

Moxley takes the mic to say, “All I know is one thing for sure. The three men in this ring live and breathe for the sport of professional wrestling! You can call us whatever you want, but December 10th, ROH Final Battle, this war with the Jericho Appreciation Society is OVER! These men make a statement. This Friday night on Rampage, I make a statement! I’m gonna challenge any wrestler in the world to come right here in this ring and find out just where you stand on the food chain. This Friday on Rampage, I make a statement! At Final Battle, they make a statement! Pro-wrestling is about to make a serious statement!”

The fans fire up hearing that from Moxley, but who will step up to his Open Challenge? And can Claudio and Yuta both take back the ROH titles to restore that honor to those championships?

 

The House of Black speak.

Malakai says, “This company has allowed itself to be corrupted. Corrupted by people that point fingers at others while still holding the shovel in their hands that they used to dig the graves for others. And now, it is sick and it is dying. And perhaps it is time for myself and the House to… put down this corruption. Ms. Hart, what is the crime?” Julia steps out from the shadows to say, “The crime is treason.” Malakai asks “Mr. Matthews, what is the verdict?” Buddy walks out from the shadows to say, “Verdict: War.” “And Mr. King, what is the sentence?” Brody walks out to say, “It as if you throw a side of beef to a pack of wild dogs. We will tear the meat from the bone. The sentence is extermination.”

Malakai says it has been decided. “To anyone that has an issue with what we have done over the past two weeks, or anything that’s been said here, well next week Wednesday, come one, come all.” The House of Black drifts into the shadows, who will be the first to be torn apart?

 

AEW returns with Jamie Hayter’s sit-down interview.

Tony Schiavone sits with the undisputed AEW Women’s World Champion, and he notes that last week, she asked the question, “Why not a sit-down interview with me?” Well, here we are, and the floor is hers. Hayter says Saraya got a sit-down, cool. Toni Storm got one, alright. But not with Hayter? That baffles her. So no, Schiavone, you ask her something. What does he wanna know? Well, Schiavone notes the AEW Women’s Division has been blossoming. Great competitors are showing up, and this week on Rampage, we will see Hikaru Shida VS The Bunny for Shida’s Regina di Wave Championship. What are Hayter’s thoughts on the division?

Hayter says it is getting “interesting.” But unfortunately for everyone else, Hayter is on top now. And everyone is trying to grind their way to the top to get her title. She will do her duty as champion to be both reigning and defending. Hayter will have a very, very close look at that Regina de Wave title match on Rampage. “Thing is, it doesn’t really hold a candle to the AEW Women’s World Championship, does it?” Schiavone says nothing does, and Hayter agrees. This is AEW. But Hayter will “give one of those girls the opportunity of a lifetime. Whoever wins that match, they get to wrestle me for the AEW Women’s World Championship, if they dare.”

Schiavone says Hayter’s going to be a fighting champion and she says that’s right. She is a fighting champion, “and a bloody good one at that.” Who will be the Regina di Wave Champion after Rampage? And will they accept Hayter’s challenge to them?

 

Six Woman Tag: Jade Cargill & The Baddies VS Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Kiera Hogan!

The UN-DE-FEA-TED AEW TBS Champion got her belt back but got rid of the weak link, as she puts it. Red Velvet is back, Leila Grey is still around, but Kiera Hogan got kicked to the curb! Will Kiera get revenge on #ThatBitch with help from the Coach & Student? Or will Jade be undefeated even in trios action?

The teams sort out, Jade starts against Skye. The fans rally up but Jade says no, she’s above Skye. Tag to Velvet and Velvet gets her return to action already. Velvet and Skye tie up, they go around, and Velvet wrenches to a wristlock. Skye cartwheels, wrenches and wristlocks back. Then she slips around to hook, but Velvet blocks the arm-drag. Velvet brings Skye up but Skye shifts sides to arm-drag Velvet from the other arm! Velvet staggers up and fans fire up. Skye and Velvet tie up again, Velvet headlocks but Skye snapmares free. Skye steps over an arm, and wraps Velvet up for a creative take on La Magistrol, TWO!

Velvet has a cover now, TWO! Skye has it back, ONE! Velvet has the cover again, TWO! Fans fire up for that exchange, and Velvet has to admit that was good. Velvet offers a handshake, Skye accepts, and then Skye turns to her partners. But Velvet throws Skye down by her hair! The ref reprimands, fans boo, and Velvet bumps Skye off buckles. Tag to Grey, the Baddies double whip to double CHOP! Grey covers, ONE!! Fans rally, Grey drags Skye up to whip her to a corner. Grey runs in to SHINING WIZARD! Grey then headlocks but Skye denies the bulldog to kick the legs out! Grey blocks a superkick but Skye spins through to KICK Grey down!

Fans fire up as Skye drags Grey back up, tag to Rayne. Skye & Rayne double whip, trip and basement dropkick Grey! Rayne covers, ONE!! Rayne drags Grey up to bump her off buckles! Tag back to Skye, Rayne snapmares but Grey scrambles away to tag in Velvet! Velvet ducks Skye’s clothesline to come back, but Skye dodges to SUPERKICK! Velvet flops to the outside and fans rally as Skye builds speed. Skye falls into the apron skirt trap! Velvet fires off on Skye! The ref reprimands, Velvet lets off, then she climbs over Skye to stand on the apron while AEW goes picture in picture.

Velvet stirs it up and has a taste while Skye flops out of the skirt. Velvet puts Skye back in the ring, clamps onto an arm and grinds the shoulder. Velvet bumps Skye off buckles, tags in Grey, and Grey taunts Rayne and Kiera while Velvet uses Skye as a boxing bag! Jade also talks trash on Skye while the ref reprimands Grey and keeps Kiera back. Grey hurries over to pull Skye’s hair! The Baddies mug Skye, then Grey tags in. The Baddies double suplex Skye high and hard! Jade applauds her team while Grey covers, TWO! Grey is annoyed but she rains down fists on Skye. Grey wraps on a headlock and she grinds Skye down.

Fans rally as Skye endures. Grey stands over Skye while pulling on the hold, but Skye still fights her way up. But Grey wrangles Skye back down! Grey grinds the hold, Skye keeps her shoulders up, and fans rally again. Skye fights up a second time, she throws body shots, and then she JAWBREAKERS! Grey staggers away, tag to Velvet, and she runs to BLAST Rayne! Velvet stands Skye up to mule kick, then she covers, TWO! Dynamite returns to single picture as Velvet tells the ref something’s in her eye, while choking Skye with a knee! The ref notices the choke, she counts and Velvet steps off at 4. Velvet talks trash to Rayne, covers Skye, TWO!

Velvet drags Skye up but Skye breaks free. Velvet mule kicks, brings Skye around and- NO, Skye slips out of the Final Slice! DOUBLE LARIATS take them both down! Fans fire up as Skye and Velvet crawl. Velvet grabs Skye’s leg to keep her from her team, but Skye fights up to stand up. Velvet throws the leg down, but they both SUPERKICK! Both women go down again and fans fire up! Skye crawls, as does Velvet, hot tags to Kiera and Jade! Jade storms up, Kiera dodges and Kiera fires off forerams and CHOPS! Jade shoves back but Kiera SHOTGUNS Jade! Kiera sees Grey coming and tosses her out! Kiera goes side to side to BOOT WASH Jade!

Velvet runs in but Kiera sends her out now! Fans fire up with Kiera while Rayne DECKS Grey! Kiera runs in but Jade blocks the boot for a SPINEBUSTER!! Jade taunts Kiera, drags her up to chicken wings, but Kiera switches out! Hot tag to Rayne! Rayne dodges jade, ENZIGURIS, then reels her in! Ripcord, RAYNE- NO, Jade ROCKS Rayne first! Then chicken wings, for the JADED! Cover, The Baddies win!

Winners: Jade Cargill & The Baddies, by pinfall

Just as Kiera was on fire, she let off to see if Rayne could stop Jade. Jade was not stopped, she is 43-0 overall now, and still TBS Champion. Will The Baddies continue to dominate AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Saraya.

Tony Schiavone is with The Revolution on a very festive set. Schiavone congratulates Saraya on her return to action and the win, and she thanks him for that. Saraya is actually surprised Britt isn’t- Oh, wait, here she is. Britt says no one needs to worry now. And Britt also congratulates Saraya on “the biggest win” of her entire career. It will never happen again. Also, Britt was thinking about something Saraya mentioned to her. Something about everything being handed to her on a silver platter. But Saraya came to AEW, and her first match was a PPV match against “the biggest star in the Women’s Division.”

So here’s one more thing handed to Saraya: Tickets to the Kia Forum, for the January 11th edition of Dynamite. Saraya can be front row and watch Britt be the star that she is, or maybe she can step in the ring again. Saraya tells “Baby girl,” she would love to beat Britt again. Of course! Round two! Uh, no, Britt didn’t say it’d be against her. Saraya forgot that Britt has the AEW Women’s World Champion, Jamie Hayter, with her at all times. Except right now. But it will be a tag match, Britt & Hayter VS Saraya and whoever Saraya can find to tag with her. But good luck, Saraya will never beat Britt & Hayter.

Britt heads out and Saraya asks Schiavone if he wants to get in the ring. Britt brings Schiavone with her so Saraya accepts that she’ll have to find someone. She has a little over a month, who will The Revolution invite to her house?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Acclaimed VS FTR!

Max Caster & Anthony Bowens want to prove they’re the best, so that means facing the best! Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood have been AEW World Tag Team Champions before, but they want to make history be becoming FOUR BELT CHAMPIONS! Will FTR stand for #FourTitleReigns? Or will Platinum Max & the Five Tool Player prove they are AEW’s Forever Champions?

Caster of course has a rap on deck! “Acclaimed on the mic, it’s about to be a problem. You the Top Guys but you ’bout to the bottoms. Whole world just scissoring. We gonna beat y’all down right in the ring! FTR, you’re a joke. I think your name stands for Find The Remote! Yo, you just a hocker. You gonna lose just like Herschel Walker.” Bowens gets the mic to say, “AUSTIIIIN, TEXAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he does! The introductions are made, the AEW belts are raised, and we see who has what it takes to be THE BEST team in the world!

The teams sort out and fans are thunderous for both teams. Bowens and Dax start, they circle, and fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Bowens smirks and conducts the fans while Dax keeps his cool. They tie up, go around, and Dax puts Bowens in the corner. Tag to Cash but Bowens gets away. Cash and Bowens circle now, and we see Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett all watching backstage. Cash and Bowens tie up, Bowens headlocks but Cash turns it around. Bowens powers out but Cash runs him over. Things speed up, Cash hits a headlock takeover but Bowens headscissors. Cash kips free and hits another headlock takeover.

Bowens headscissors again, Cash kips free again, avoids a sweep and waistlocks to roll and bridge to a cover, TWO! Cash hits another headlock takeover but Bowens rolls that to a cover, TWO! Bowens and Cash stand off and fans fire up. Cash talks with Dax, then Bowens tags Caster in. Cash tags Dax, Caster swaggers and taunts Dax. They circle, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Caster powers out, Dax runs him over! Things keep moving, Caster hurdles and hip tosses! Caster then dropkicks Dax, arm-drags him, and he grinds the shoulder! Fans fire up as Caster brings Dax over. Tag to Bowens, they hand off the wrench to ELBOW BREAKER! But Dax ROCKS Bowens!

Dax bumps Bowens off buckles, CHOPS him, and fans “WOO~!” Bowens fires forearms in return, then CHOPS back! Dax CHOPS! Bowens CHOPS! Bowens fires more forearms, then whips, but Dax blocks a hip toss, only for Bowens to block a hip toss, and repeat! They go around and around, they end up on the ropes and the ref counts. Fans fire up as Dax slowly lets off, but Bowens shoves him. Cash steps in, but then so does Caster, and things are heated between the teams. The ref has them cool off, but then the brawl erupts! Austin is loving this as Cash UPPERCUTS Caster while Bowens has Dax in the corner!

Caster gets up, he dodges Cash to clothesline Cash out! Cash lands hard while Dax turns things around on Bowens. Dax ROCKS Bowens but Caster scoops him to SLAM him! Bowens goes up, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Fans fire up and Bowens calls to Caster. They SCISSOR FINGER! Bowens tags Caster back in, then he drags Dax up. The Acclaimed mug Dax, Caster whips but Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges then trips Caster! Dax ties Caster up, but Caster punches and BOOTS his way out of the Sharpshooter! Caster has the legs now, and he figures out the hook. Cash runs in but Bowens trips him! Bowens steps through, The Acclaimed have DOUBLE SHARPSHOOTERS!!

Fans are thunderous as FTR endures! Dax crawls, ROPEBREAK, and The Acclaimed let off. FTR regroups on the outside while Daddy Ass SCISSOR FINGERS his boys! Caster goes out to ROCK Dax, and Bowens is after Cash. Cash POSTS Bowens, Dax ROCKS Caster! Cash BOOTS Caster, Dax moves the apron skirt out of the way so Cash can bump Caster right off the edge! Then they put Caster under the ring, to CATAPULT GUILLOTINE Caster with the ring frame! Caster writhes while checking his teeth, and FTR SCISSOR FINGER! Fans aren’t sure what to make of that as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cash mocks the fans with the scissor fingers while Billy checks Caster. Dax shouts at him to get back, then he puts Caster in the ring. Dax storms up on Caster and BOOTS him down! Tag to Cash, and Dax bumps Caster off Cash’s knees. Caster staggers, Cash CHOPS him! And CHOPS again! Caster flops over and Cash soaks up the cheers and jeers. Caster gest to ropes, Cash is on him with a EuroUpper! Cash flexes and then drags Caster up to snapmare. Cash clamps on a chinlock and he thrashes Caster around. Caster endures as Cash grinds him down into the mat. Caster fights up, throws body shots, but Cash shoves and RAMS into him!

Cash headlocks, then short arm LARIATS Caster down! Tag to Dax, he drops a leg, then covers, TWO! Dax drags Caster up and around, for a BIG back suplex! Tag to Cash, he stays between Caster and Bowens, and he sits Caster up for the chinlock. Caster endures again as Cash grinds him back down. Fans rally, Caster fights up, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Caster throws body shots, arm-drags free, but Cash KNEES Caster down! Cash brings Caster up to CHOP him, then he hoists Caster to the top rope. Cash ROCKS Caster, CHOPS him, then climbs up after him. Caster resists, throws body shots, and fans fire up!

Caster shoves Cash down! Caster adjusts, CROSSBODIES, and both men are down! Austin is thunderous as both men crawl. Team Double Jay all critique what they’re seeing, wanting someone to capitalize. Hot tag from Cash to Dax! Dax stays between The Acclaimed and he DECKS Caster! Dax takes a swing on Bowens but he avoids it, and then Dax turns around into a BIG back drop! Hot tag to Bowens! Bowens rallies on FTR with haymakers and elbows! Bowens kicks Dax low, then CLUBS and CLUBS and ELBOWS and CLUBS away on Dax!

Cover, TWO!! Cash drags Caster up, short arm LARIAT! And then another short arm LARIAT! Cash reels Caster in, hauls him up, POWERBOMB! Jackknife, but Caster rolls it through!! THE ACCLAIMED WIN!!!

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

FTR is shocked! Caster & Bowens win by the skin of their teeth, but all it takes is a moment! But to show respect to Cash & Dax, they offer up the scissor fingers. FTR join in on a HUGE SCISSORING! But then from the back, the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are sarcastically clapping. Austin tells FTR, “So close! Legacy, bye-bye. And Colten, the fans thought we would get involved? Haha, no. You guys are TRASH!” Colten says, “But Austin, they’ve had a pretty good year. And we don’t want it to end yet. So we got you guys some Christmas presents.”

Austin & Colten bring out a couple stockings, and Austin reads the card. “Oh, it looks like it’s written in blood. It’s from… DEM BOYS! The Briscoe Bros! Saturday, Final Battle!” But wait, there’s more! In the stockings, Austin & Colten bring out DOG COLLARS!! The Briscoes want a Double Dog Collar Tag Team Match! “Merry Christmas, b*tch!!” Jay & Mark Briscoe threw out the challenge, and FTR are all for it! But will the three-belt champions soon lose one of those in the most brutal way possible?


My Thoughts:

A pretty awesome episode for AEW here as a go-home to a lot of things going on under the AEW umbrella. For one, great battle royal to open the night. I knew Starks would win but AEW still does a great job with the chaotic nature of battle royals, and in using them to give us a lot of story at once. I bet Jungle Boy moves on from Luchasaurus & Christian Cage (for now) by taking on The Firm after that just nasty looking apron choke slam JB took from Morrissey. Plus, there was a lot going on with Matt Hardy and Ethan Page, Hardy is going to be conflicted all the way until the moment Hardy can’t take it anymore and he rebels against The Firm.

Then after the win, Starks and MJF have an amazing promo. Starks tore into MJF, but because Starks stood tall tonight, I’m pretty sure MJF retains his title and diamond ring. A bit of a shame for Starks then, but he’s proven himself a world title picture guy, so surely Starks finds his way back around during MJF’s “reign of terror.” Great promos from Darby and Joe ahead of their title match, and I don’t think I’ve seen anyone take a powerslam to bare concrete and still wrestle. I figured Joe would retain, though, as he now has Wardlow coming for him. Joe VS Juice happens at Final Battle, Joe surely retains there, too, and then I think we get Joe VS Wardlow for Holiday Bash or New Year’s Smash. Joe can try ducking Wardlow but he can’t duck him for three months to get to AEW Revolution.

Speaking of one of the things to come out of the battle royal, I like that Cassidy and Kip had an interaction. But at the same time, Kip using what happened in the battle royal as an excuse not to face Cassidy for Rampage was pretty good Heel stuff. Cassidy could be facing just about anyone with Kip able to bring anyone in, but I would love if they used this moment to bring Miro back. There’s a lot of reasons why, from Kip being the guy who brought Miro into AEW to begin with, and Miro wanting the All-Atlantic Championship from how he almost had that title in the first place. And that’d be something to make Rampage an amazing episode.

Good promos from Hayter, Saraya and Britt, and I like that Hayter wants to be a fighting champion. She helped hype up Shida VS Bunny, and now that the winner gets a title match, that’s going to be even better stuff. I think Shida wins to retain, and then Shida and Hayter can have a big match for one of the holiday episodes. Britt challenging Saraya for a match in January is pretty interesting stuff, and of course it’s a tag match so Britt doesn’t have to face Saraya 1v1. I think Saraya ends up bringing Toni Storm into that match, and there’s a way to get them all into the title scene. I would love if this led to Britt VS Hayter to give us the story they could’ve/should’ve before.

Good match from The Baddies VS Kiera, Skye & Rayne. It was rather awkward booking that Kiera tags in right as she was doing great, but someone needed to take that loss other than her. Jade stays undefeated but Kiera could be the one they’ll build into taking the TBS Championship off her. Kiera is also returning to her “Fire” look from Women of Wrestling, so that’s pretty cool. Kiera and Jade can go full Starfire VS Blackfire from the Teen Titans and that’d be a great little nod to both their nerdier sides given all of Jade’s great cosplay ring gears for her big matches. Now, sadly, Bow Wow might still be a distraction for Jade, but at least Kiera will be someone we’ve seen in AEW and not someone brand new brought in just to beat Jade.

Great promo from Moxley to call out Hangman while hyping up BCC VS JAS. And good promo from Jericho to hype up his match with Claudio. Great tag match as well, and BCC winning out makes sense. The go-home math adds up to where JAS finds a way to retain the titles. Regal having a video message that was rather “If you’re seeing this, I’m dead” trope. But I’m a little perplexed by Regal’s logic, and by the BCC more or less shrugging it off. I thought it would’ve been more effective if someone attacked during that moment but I supposed that’d be too much given BCC VS JAS has to still wrap up. Moxley VS Konosuke will be great stuff, but Moxley is surely winning, and then Hangman probably comes out to make a challenge for Winter is Coming or New Year’s Smash.

Really good promo from The House of Black, and who knows who they’ll face first, because it’s all to bide their time until Death Triangle VS The Elite settles. Then the House can go after the AEW Trios Champions for the next feud. And then we got an awesome tag team championship main event. Acclaimed VS FTR was borderline PPV level, but I’m honestly surprised The Acclaimed won. This really should’ve been a bigger moment than it was treated, because we were then just given the Ass Boys being the proxies to the Briscoes. This is sadly a spotlight on how Tony Khan isn’t able to handle both companies at once, because one, should we not have had FTR VS Gunn Sons by this point? The Gunns have been pestering FTR for so long, they should get a shot at the ROH titles!

Yes, Briscoes VS FTR Part 3 with dog collars is going to be awesome stuff that makes Final Battle even better, but c’mon. Unless FTR is dropping those belts to Briscoes, it’s going to be even worse when the Ass Boys take the titles off them. I know FTR has been busy with the other two belts of theirs, but c’mon. The Gunns were mocking FTR a couple months ago at Battle of the Belts 4, that should’ve given us a promo of the two teams arguing, an ROH tag title match happens, and there, done. Ass Boys get their shot, they miss, they move on to try the AEW World Tag titles because The Firm wants all sorts of belts.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (12/6/22)

Atlantic City gets Dark!

Published

on

Anyone feeling luck in the Dark?

With AEW Dynamite tomorrow and ROH Final Battle this weekend, Dark brings out Dalton Castle & The Boys! Will the ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions find worthy opponents in time for December 10th?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Justin Corino, Jaden Valo & Defarge; Castle & The Boys win.
  • Leva Bates VS Abadon; Abadon wins.
  • Brian Cage VS Leon Ruffin; Cage wins.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS The Brick City Boyz; Lethal & Singh win.
  • Athena VS B3CCA; Athena wins.
  • Trent Beretta w/ Chuck Taylor VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Trent wins.

QUICK NOTES

A shorter card here, and from way back a month ago when AEW was in Atlantic City ahead of Full Gear. Dalton Castle & The Boys are in action on this episode because per last night’s Elevation, they more or less called out The Embassy. Castle & The Boys VS Cage & The Gates of Agony probably ends up a Final Battle preshow match, and I feel like that would/should be the time The Embassy takes those titles. Castle & The Boys have been great ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions, but The Embassy is going to look like a joke if they can’t get a pin off one of the Boys.
