Fans lose their minds as Bryan skids down the Plexiglas to the carpeting. Omega has a wild look in his eyes as he gets up. Omega refreshes the count and then goes up the ramp and to the stage. He wants all the space he can get as he runs down at Bryan, for a NASTY V-TRIGGER!! Bryan is sputtering on the apron as AEW goes picture in picture!

Omega pushes Bryan off the apron and wants the ring count! The ref begins, fans counting along and Callis acting like this is over already. Bryan is stirring at 5 of 10, floundering at 6, but Callis keeps barking that this needs to go faster. Bryan is up and Callis scurries away, but then Bryan falls over. Omega goes out with a smirk and is taking his time fetching Bryan. Omega clears the timekeeper’s table while the ref says to get this back inside. Omega scoops and SLAMS Bryan onto the table! The table doesn’t break and Bryan slides off, but Omega leaves him behind for another ring count. Bryan crawls his way over at 4 of 10, flounders at 5, and Omega gets a refreshing bottle of water thanks to Callis.

The ring count is 7 of 10 but Bryan drags himself up and in! Fans cheer but Omega is annoyed. Omega crouches next to Bryan to ask him if this is how he wants to play it.

Until Bryan gets a TRIPLE SUPERKICK from Cole & The Bucks!! Fans boo the #SuperKliq, but here come Christian Cage and Jurassic Express! Captain Charisma, Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus take the fight to Cole & The Bucks, but the Elite goes into retreat! Will the Super Kliq get what they deserve on Rampage this Friday?

 

CM Punk heads to the ring!

Before going up against “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs on Rampage, the Best in the World is here on Dynamite to talk to the people of New York! “I sure am glad I’m not wrestling on Dynamite. How do you follow that?” But it’s been a long time since he’s been in NYC. And even longer since pro-wrestling has been in NYC! Punk hears people telling him he should be mad, pissed off and he should be the “old” CM Punk. Trust him, you’ll see him eventually, but be careful what you wish for. Punk calls out Hobbs and Team Taz. “Half of y’all are from here and they don’t even like you.” Punk tried to walk down and mean mug but he hears and sees all the fans and just smiles! What does Punk have to be mad about?

But then Punk thinks about it. Last week on Dynamite, Hobbs jumped him from behind and put him through a table. And yes, it pissed Punk off, and yes, Punk is mad about it. But when his music hits and he steps out on stage, Punk can’t help feel the way he feels. The anger goes away and YES it’s a love fest! YES, Punk’s smiling and happy because he’s happy to see the fans! What Team Taz attempted to do was take this all away from him. Team Taz doesn’t want Cult of Personality and happy Punk enjoying pro-wrestling fans. Then Punk gets really pissed because it’s been SO long since he’s felt this, since he’s had this, since HE needed this, so NO ONE is taking this! This is HIS again!

Fans chant for “CM PUNK! CM PUNK!” all the way to the cheap seats in the back. So Team Taz, and Hobbs especially, you should’ve finished the job. You should’ve broken his neck and made sure the people who have PACKED Arthur Ashe Stadium wouldn’t get to hear Cult of Personality! “But you made a mistake, and you let me live. And really, you slept on the legend of CM Punk.” It isn’t Punk’s job to wake their asses up, it’s his job to tuck their asses in. Rampage Grand Slam, Powerhouse Hobbs GOES TO SLEEP! Punk may not be mad but he is fired up! Will Team Taz take a big loss when Punk hits one out of the park?

 

MJF w/ Wardlow VS Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Julia Hart!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman proved just how deplorable his personality is in Cincinnati, but now the Cincinnati hero is in the Big Apple! Will the Salt of the Earth continue to kick dirt in BPJ’s face? Or will the leader of the Pinnacle be grounded by the son of Flyin’ Brian?

The bell rings and MJF offers a handshake that we all know is a trap. BPJ know sit and he tackles MJF down for ground ‘n’ pound! MJF scrambles away, BPJ rushes in and clotheslines!

MJF stands on BPJ’s arm and soaks up the heat a moment before he stomps the hand! MJF goes to a corner as BPJ goes to the other, and MJF storms over to wrap the bad arm around ropes. The ref counts as MJF pulls, and MJF lets off at 4. MJF then kicks the rope to jam BPJ’s arm! BPJ staggers to the corner, MJF wrenches his arm again and hammerlocks before the back suplex! Cover, TWO! MJF is annoyed but he sits BPJ up to kick him back down. MJF kicks BPJ around, stands him up, but BPJ throws body shots and forearms. BPJ goes to run but MJF throws him down by his hair! MJF paces around while AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and MJF DECKS BPJ with a haymaker. MJF smirks as he stalks BPJ to a corner. BPJ gets up, MJF shouts, “Where’s your boy!?” MJF wrenches, throws hands but BPJ ducks to CHOP and CHOP!

Fans count to 9, BPJ powers up but MJF elbows before the 10th!

MJF runs but into a SPINNING POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! MJF escapes and bails out of the ring but BPJ rallies the fans. BPJ builds speed but MJF uses Julia as a shield! Fans boo the dicketry as MJF shoves Julia at BPJ then CLOBBERS him! MJF puts BPJ in the ring, Julia tells MJF off but MJF dares her to do something. She pie faces MJF, but MJF gets pissed and grabs her hand. But BPJ WRECKS MJF with a dropkick! BPJ drags MJF up and in, high-tens Julia, then aims from the corner. Fans are fired up as BPJ springboards, but MJF grabs the arm! SALT OF THE EARTH FUJIWARA!! BPJ taps, MJF wins!

Winner: MJF, by submission

And he slithers up to Julia to rub it in her face. “Somebody stop me! I’m begging ya!” Will MJF continue to inflate his ego until he’s truly reached the top of AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho & Jake Hager.

Alex Marvez points out their match at Rampage against The Men of the Year, Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky. Their thoughts? Hager says those guys are more like Boys of the Week. Those little boys are going to get spanked because they chose to follow “a fat-faced dipsh*t” in Dam Lambert. Jericho says Sky & Page made a mistake challenging The Inner Circle to a match in New York City! This is the hardest hitting, toughest town in America, and that is perfect for Big Hoss Hager and Le Champion Jericho, because they’re the hardest hitting, toughest tag team in AEW! And if Lambert insists on sticking his nose in their business, then Jericho is going to bite that nose off like Haku in Japan and spit it into the fifth room! PLAH!

As for America Top Team, bring ’em along! Jericho & Hager are feral, hungry, rabid, and ready to snack on some MMA big meatheads in the Big Apple, baby! Rampage Grand Slam, get ready!

 

Cody Rhodes w/ The Nightmare Family VS Malakai Black!

The American Nightmare made a triumphant return, just as the House of Black was looking to persecute those even supporting the Nightmare Family! But given how Malakai mangled him the first time around, does Cody stand a chance of defeating the Dark Father?

But speaking of the family, Brandi Rhodes and Arn Anderson are back to be in Cody’s corner! Malakai doesn’t seem even to register them as he keeps his now red eye on Cody. Fans are fired up at the bell and Malakai waits on Cody to do something. The two approach, Cody gets a takedown but Malakai kicks him away. Malakai wants a leg now but Cody rolls through to get away. Malakai kips up and the two stare down as fans cheer. Cody and Malakai circle again, then Malakai throws a forearm! Cody gives it back, Malakai throws another but Cody kicks low. Cody drops for the Rhodes Uppercut, then stands Malakai up for EuroUppers.

Malakai sweeps the legs, rolls Cody up, but then wants a submission! Cody kicks him away but he ducks the Penalty Kick! Cody bails out, Malakai builds speed, but he fakes Cody out with a Quebrada to then sit down cross-legged, with a little bow for showmanship. Fans cheer as Cody paces in a huff on the outside. Arn tries to calm him down, but Brandi gets in the ring to sit cross-legged, and she flips Malakai off! Malakai laughs, but Cody rushes in to drag Malakai up and whip him to ropes! Malakai gets around for a crucifix into an IRON OCTOPUS! Cody stays standing but Malakai keeps pulling on his arm! Cody gets to ropes but Malakai sunset flips, TWO!

Cody hurries up, Malakai runs in but is thrown out to the ramp. Cody hits a DISASTER KICK! Malakai falls back onto the LED as fans actually boo the American Nightmare! Cody shrugs that off and climbs up top to LEAP, into a JUMPING KNEE! Both men crash down but Malakai grins as he sits up. Cody writhes and clutches his arm as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cody crawls into the ring but Malakai is right behind him. Malakai gets Cody up to throw body shots and fast hands, then stomp away on the legs. Malakai whips Cody to ropes to CLOBBER him with an elbow! Body scissor catch to a HEEL HOOK! Cody endures, drags himself over and gets the ROPEBREAK! Malakai lets off, watches Cody get to ropes, and stalks up behind him again. Malakai brings Cody around for EuroUppers but Cody throws forearms back. They brawl, Cody throws body shots, Malakai BOOTS him into the corner! Cody falls to the apron, the ref has Malakai back off, but Brandi helps Cody stay up and get into the ring as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Malakai has the legs. He manages a cover, ONE, and Cody pops Malakai through for a sunset! TWO!! Malakai is up, BLACK MASS!!! But it sends Cody flopping out of the ring! Malakai hurries to get Cody up but he’s dead weight! The ring count climbs, Malakai goes into the ring and lets this continue. The count is 6 of 10, Cody manages to stand at 7 and gets in at 8! Malakai covers, ROPEBREAK! Malakai is frustrated that positioning is what keeps Cody in this. Brandi and Arn coach Cody, Malakai runs but Cody follows! Cody CHOP BLOCKS Malakai, then run sin at the corner. Malakai dodges and comes back but Cody dodges so the knee hits buckles!

Cody grabs Malakai’s leg but Malakai ROCKS him with a right! Cody goes to the ramp side, Malakai hobbles over, but Cody gets the leg in the ropes for a DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Arn tells Cody to keep going and Cody runs at Malakai in the corner. Malakai boots but Cody blocks for a KNEE JAMMER! Cody fires up, CHOPS Malakai then brings him around, but Malakai back elbows free! Malakai KICKS Cody in the chest but that was his bad leg! Cody gets the dragon sleeper, Malakai spins out to waistlock but Cody switches to kick Malakai’s leg out. Cody aims from a corner, runs in but Malakai TOSSES him away! No bulldog for the Georgian here in NYC!

Cody crawls, Malakai lifts him up with his foot. Fans are thunderous but Cody gets the leg to spin Malakai. Malakai knees free of the sleeper, Cody dodges to CODY CUTTER!! Dragon sleeper, CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!?!? Arn is shocked and is up on the apron to coach Cody up. Fans are fired up, Cody has Arn go to the other side but then Arn FALLS?! Arn isn’t good at moving around the ring like he used to be, and the ref is busy with Arn while Cody whips. Malakai reverses and Cody runs into Arn! Cody is stunned, Brandi checks on Arn, but Cody BOOTS Malakai out of the ring! Cody hurries outside, checks in with Arn a second but Arn says to care more about the match!

Cody hurries after Malakai, finds him in a gap between steps and ramp and drags him up. Cody gets Malakai in the ring, stomps him in the corner, then stands him up for fast hands. Cody keeps after Malakai, but the ref pulls him back. Cody shoves the ref away!? Cody’s temper is getting the better of him, and Malakai SPITS BLACK MIST!! Cradle, Malakai wins!!

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall

Never turn your back on the House of Black! Brandi and Arn hurry to wash the mist out of Cody’s eyes, but will Cody finally see that he’s no longer on top of the world?

 

AEW looks closely at the coming TNT Championship showdown.

Sammy Guevara says, “Winning a match is one thing. But beating down a defenseless man after, that just ain’t right.” Fuego Del Sol lost both match and brand new car, and Miro decides to add insult to injury. Miro says he has been humiliating Sammy’s friends for weeks, so why only now does Sammy have the bravery to help? Maybe it’s because he saw everyone attacking the neck. Yes, Miro broke his neck in 2012, but his God fixed him and his wife nursed him back to health. Miro’s powerful body is theirs to control! God demands pain, she demands pleasure. Sometimes pain, too. But Sammy can keep coming after a weakness, but Miro will keep calm knowing he’s a fool.

Next week, live on Dynamite, God’s Favorite VS Spanish God! To celebrate, Sammy will get Fuego another new car. Will that promise come to fruition? Or will The Redeemer make Sammy into a false prophet?

 

Darby Allin & Sting VS FTR w/ Tully Blanchard!

The Relentless One and The Icon were called out by the rather delusional memory of the Pinnacle’s Horseman. Darby dealt with The Chair Man, but now he and Sting ride again to take on Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler! Will Tully make sure his young #LivingLegends make this more than a blast from the Stinger Man’s past?

Cash “tags” in and puts Darby back in the cobra twist! Darby endures, the ref sees this and questions the tag. Tully defends FTR but the ref doesn’t believe him, so he has Dax and Cash switch again. Dax gets Darby but Darby turns cobra twist into inside cradle! But the ref is still busy arguing so he’s late to the count! TWO!! Dax gets Darby up to CLUB him down in the corner. Dax chokes Darby on the ropes, Tully brings out a rag, and AEW returns to single picture as Tully nods.

AEW Women’s World Championship: Britt Baker w/ Rebel & Jamie Hayter VS Ruby Soho!

Shots were fired on last week’s Rampage, but now it’s time to throw hands! Will we once again be reminded of why Dr. Britt Baker, DMD is the face of the AEW Women’s Division? Or will the Runaway make this main event one to remember with a walk-off?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Destination Unknown is here in NYC!

The fans rally and duel already as the two circle. They tie up, go around, and as Britt powers Ruby back, Ruby powers Britt back. Ruby gets a heel trip and dribbles Britt on the mat!

Ruby should’ve been reminded that Britt has back-up that always comes in handy! But now we’ll all have to hear about it again and again that Britt Baker, DMD, is still on top! Will anyone be able to get past the stacked deck that’s in Britt’s favor?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome night for AEW! I said it earlier, I’ll say it again for real, the perfect way to open was with the perfectly booked Omega VS Bryan. AEW has been saving up using time limit draws just for a moment like this and it was exactly what it needed to be. Omega was taking Bryan seriously, they gave us what already felt like a title match and yet there’s still a chance for more because it was just a draw. The Elite of course came out to protect their leader, and of course we got a quick brawl with Christian & Jurassic Express to hype up Rampage’s Six Man Tag. That match is also going to be great but I would think the Super Kliq finds a way to win so The Elite stays strong.

CM Punk had a good point in his promo, hard to follow Omega VS Bryan with anything. But his promo was a very good thing to go with because he got just as fired up as anybody hyping up his match with Hobbs. Punk is definitely winning his first televised match in seven years, but with Ricky Starks still having to settle things with Brian Cage, what is he supposed to do with Team Taz after? Is Hook even old enough to be signed as a wrestler? Is Taz going to come out of retirement for one night? Is Team Taz going to add someone new since they kicked out Brian Cage weeks ago? Kinda hoping on that last one, I’m sure someone who has been on Dark and Elevation would love to join Team Taz and feud with Punk.

MJF VS BPJ was great stuff, and I am more surprised Wardlow didn’t get involved. MJF instead picking on Julia makes sense, because he’s such a tool. I wouldn’t mind seeing this continue if MJF & Wardlow took on the Varsity Blonds in full. Jericho & Hager had a really good promo to call out Ethan & Scorpio, their match is going to be pretty good, but I feel like the Men of the Year have to win to keep this going. We also got a really good promo vignette from Sammy Guevara and Miro, and I am definitely expecting Miro to retain because his list of TNT Championship showdowns is still packed with great names. I mentioned Wardlow for Dark, but MJF could easily give us great story with Miro with the promo battles.

Cody VS Malakai was great stuff, and a lot of it went the way it should have. What was wild was the fans flipping the script and making Cody into the Heel. Cody might not want to “turn” Heel, but he could still cleverly be a Heel while not thinking of himself as the villain, hence the entire homage to Homelander from The Boys. I feel like Malakai should move on from Cody but maybe Cody can’t let this loss go because of the black mist. There’s still the anniversary show to plan something big for, and TNT advertised monster and horror movies for October so maybe there’s some corporate synergy in a No Disqualification match between these two.

Darby & Sting VS FTR was great stuff, and Sting really got going in this match. Darby just loves going off onto the apron, because I thought he was going to hit Dax on the inside with that Coffin Drop but instead goes after Cash. Sting and Darby win, they could start to make a case of being tag title contenders but then something happens and we see Darby want to pull away from Sting or even face Sting. That’d be quite the match but fans seem to really like the duo so who knows how it goes. And it was a great move that the title match of the night was the main event, Britt VS Ruby definitely worthy of that spot.

Britt VS Ruby bordered on PPV level, and Ruby got to show a lot, and Britt’s minions helping was to keep Ruby strong in her loss. Now AEW just has to get Thunder Rosa going so we can get that rematch for the anniversary show.

My Score: 9.3/10

Konosuke dodges the discus, both men run, Konosuke leaps, but into a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! Claudio almost gave Konosuke an F5 there! Both men are down, a standing count starts, and both men sit up at 5. Claudio and Konosuke get up, they fire off forearms and fans rally up! Konosuke gets the edge, but Claudio dodges to SPRINGBOARD UPPERCUT! And the DISCUS! And then, HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! That’s a Blackpool Combat Cub signature! Claudio tucks the arms, RICOLA BOMB!!! Cover, Claudio wins!!

Winner: Claudio Castagnoli, by pinfall (still ROH World Champion)

Regal says that was an amazing showing from Konosuke, and he admits how close that was to a win for Konosuke! But if this is as good as Konosuke is now, just how more amazing will he become in the coming years? And as for the winner, the Swiss Superman is still the champion, how much harder will he fight to keep this reign going?


My Thoughts:

An awesome hour of wrestling right here, with just the wrestling! Bonus points to me for calling the order of matches from the start. The TNT Championship was an awesome opener, with Wardlow getting a great win off a great star like Lethal. At the same time, I should’ve figured the Heels would beat Wardlow down after that match. They might even be able to swing this to where Lethal gets another shot at Wardlow at All Out for an even better match. The AEW Women’s World Championship match was great, and of course Britt and Rebel get involved here and there. Rosa gets the win with a quick pin so it’s not like Hayter looked weak there. But maybe they’ll swing this to give us another match of Rosa VS Britt for the title at All Out.

And what an awesome match from the ROH World Championship with Claudio VS Konosuke. That was perhaps one of the more competitive examples of a first title defense and a first title challenge in a long time. I feel like that place would’ve exploded if Konosuke actually pulled this one off, but it made a lot of sense for Claudio to retain. Claudio is going to carry the banner for ROH as a returning classic name, much like with Samoa Joe. And Konosuke can now believably be in just about any title scene with this performance, I’m pretty sure.

My Score: 8.8/10

Warner whips Moxley hard into steel steps! Fans fire up as the steps go sliding! Warner drags Moxley up and whips him into railing! Then Warner HEADBUTTS Moxley, moves the chair aside, and snap suplexes Moxley onto the chair! Payback for earlier! The ring count is 5 of 10, Moxley gets in at 6!

Moxley drags Warner up the steps, reels him in, but Warner throws body shots! Warner turns things around, DDT to the steel steps! Fans fire up while both men are down and AEW goes picture in picture!

Warner writhes, that was double-edged for him. But he gets his arms moving, drags himself off the steps, and gets himself in the ring. Warner waits on Moxley as he stands up and staggers around. Moxley goes the wrong way, flops to the floor, and the count is 7! Moxley springs up and in at 9! For Warner to BOOT him down!

The Ohio Maniac just showed the Southern Psycho why you don’t wanna fight him. Step up or get stepped on! Will Moxley make sure Jericho understands that explicitly at Quake by the Lake?

 

AEW shares Lexi Nair’s interview with Ricky Starks.

She knows his emotions are running high after the betrayal by Will Hobbs, but he has her hold on. Because the Factory’s there waiting for him. Aaron Solo, Anthony Ogogo, Nick Comoroto, new recruit Cole Karter, and of course QT Marshall. QT tells Ricky that this is two weeks in a row that Hobbs absolutely laid him out. And normally, this type of protection QT is offering would cost a lot of money, but hey, for Starks? It’ll be o the house. On the house, huh? Where’d they get this fool from? Starks of course means Comoroto in his blue velvet tracksuit. Solo says this is classic Ricky. He cracks jokes, makes things about himself, just like when he and Solo were a team.

Solo knows Starks better than anyone, so he doesn’t blame Hobbs for doing what he did. But as an old friend, take the help. Oh, take the hep? Starks doesn’t need anyone’s help! So QT can kiss his ass! QT has his boys stand down, they’ll get Starks soon enough. Will Starks not need help against the Powerhouse coming for him?

 

Konosuke Takeshita VS Ryan Nemeth w/ Peter Avalon!

The Future of DDT has an ROH World Championship match in his near future, but his immediate future is the Hollywood Hunk. Will Konosuke use Nemeth as a tune-up for the Swiss Cyborg? Or will Nemeth show that he should be considered the future of wrestling?

Nemeth eggs Konosuke on during his entrance, so Konosuke runs and slides into the ring, dodges Nemeth as the bell rings, and ROCKS him with forearms! Konosuke whips, Nemeth reverses but Konosuke ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING FOREARM! Fans fire up with Konosuke and he runs in at Nemeth for a BOOT! Konosuke then drags Nemeth up, climbs up, and rains down fists! Fans count all the way to 10, and then Konosuke lets Nemeth drop. Konosuke prepares his elbow pad, builds speed, but Nemeth distracts the ref so that Avalon can trip Konosuke up! Konosuke glares but Nemeth CLOBBERS Konosuke!

Nemeth half nelsons to throw knee after knee! Konosuke drops and Nemeth swivels the hips, then thrusts them! Nemeth drags Konosuke up, turns him, swivels a bit more, but Konosuke powers out to scoop, BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Fans fire up as Konosuke aims from the corner! Nemeth staggers up, into the V-TRIGGER!! A shout out to his mentor, Kenny Omega! Cover, Konosuke wins!

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

But then Avalon attacks! Avalon clubs away on Konosuke, but Konosuke gets up, dodges, JUMP KNEE!! Konosuke is standing tall and feeling good, but will he be able to take the ROH title from Claudio Gaddam Castagnoli?

 

AEW shares Lexi Nair’s interview with Best Friends.

A tough loss for Orange Cassidy against Jay Lethal, we now check in on him in the medical room. She says Lethal did a number on Cassidy’s leg, what is the status of the injury? Chuck says they tried to break the leg, so that’s an update. And Lethal’s guys have been trying to destroy Chuck’s boys, and they’re not doing great. Cassidy is out of the top five in singles, Best Friends are out of the top five in tag, so something needs to change. Trent says Best Friends need to stick together. They’re at their best when they’re together. Maybe even as a trio! The new titles are coming! Everyone, hands in! Trios on three! Wait! “Doctor” Danhausen joins in, too! Oh, wow. But one way or another, will Best Friends be golden in this coming Trios Tournament?

 

Madison Rayne VS Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway!

The new Supervising Coach of the AEW Women’s Division is also the newest member of the AEW Women’s Division! Not that The Baddies liked hear about that. Jade Cargill got in Madison’s face on Elevation, but will the Provisional Baddie do the dirty work? Or will Madison have an impact in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up for Rayne, she and Grey tie up. They are in a deadlock, but Rayne finds a point of leverage and pushes Grey back. Grey turns that around to put Rayne in the corner, and the ref counts. Grey lets off at 4, but hits Rayne with a cheap shot! Rayne shakes her head and storms up on Grey, but Grey uses the ropes as a defense! Rayne backs off, Grey gets out of the ropes, and the two circle again. They tie up, Rayne waistlocks, but Grey switches. Rayne switches, Grey switches again, repeat! They keep switching, Rayne smirks, but Grey elbows out then ROCKS Rayne with a forearm!

Grey whips but Rayne uses that to arm-drag and cover, TWO! Rayne trips Grey, jackknifes, TWO! Grey hurries up but Rayne gets around to backslide, TWO! Rayne arm-drags and clamps on with a cording hold. Fans rally up but Grey fights up. Grey thrashes but Rayne holds on tight! Grey reaches out but Rayne arm-drags her from the ropes! Grey still fights up, pulls hair, and she puts Rayne in the corner. The ref counts, Grey lets off, but she kicks low now! Grey whips Rayne corner to corner, runs in but Rayne sips out to the apron! Rayne shoulder sin, but Stokely distracts her with stomps on the steps! Grey BLASTS Rayne off the apron!

Rayne clutches a leg while she’s on the ground, and Stokely cheers Grey as Rampage goes picture in picture. Grey goes out to stomp Rayne, drag her up, and smack her off the apron! Grey then CHOPS Rayne against the apron, then snap suplexes her to the floor! Rayne crawls but Grey CLUBS her down. Grey refreshes the ring count, then KICKS Rayne in the chest! Grey drags Rayne up, UPPERCUTS her, then brings her around, to RAM into railing! Grey and Stokely both taunt Rayne, but Rayne sits up to throw body shots! Grey CLUBS Rayne, Rayne throws more shots. Grey CLUBS Rayne, puts her in the ring, and pushes her to a cover, TWO!

Grey is frustrated with Rayne, but Rayne is a multiple time women’s champion. Grey drags Rayne up, UPPERCUTS her again, and Rayne staggers to a corner. Grey drags Rayne up to cravat and CHOKE her against the ropes! The ref counts, Grey lets off and Rayne sputters to the corner. The ref reprimands Grey but she doesn’t care. She storms up on Rayne, but into a kick! And another kick! Rayne ROCKS Grey, Grey ROCKS Rayne, and Grey snapmares Rayne as AEW goes to break.

Rampage returns as Rayne endures a chinlock. Fans rally, Rayne fights up and throws body shots! Rayne JAWBREAKERS, then ENZIGURIS Grey down! Fans fire up as Rayne throws forearms and CHOPS on repeat! Rayne DECKS Grey, then eggs her on! Grey staggers up, Rayne spins her around for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Grey survives and Rayne sighs. Stokely coaches Grey up, Rayne drags Grey up into a ripcord, but Grey powers out of the stunner! SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO!! Rayne survives again and Grey is losing her cool! Grey drags Rayne up, cravats, but Rayne breaks free to ROCK Grey!

Grey ROCKS Rayne back, Rayne ROCKS Grey! Grey forearms, Rayne fires off a flurry, then shoves, but Grey gets around, FACE- NO, Rayne slips out and SLIDING LARIATS! Rayne drags Grey up, dragon sleeper, CROSS RAYNE! Cover, Rayne wins!

Winner: Madison Rayne, by pinfall

But she doesn’t get to celebrate long, because “A storm is coming.” Jade struts out to say, “Good help is so hard to find these days. I knew I should’ve handled your ass all on my own. Now Maddy, as you know, I’m #ThatBitch, and this? This is MY show! Now as you all know, I am big on charity. And I have an open challenge this Wednesday on Dynamite. So Maddy, I would love to invite you to show up, show out, and get that ass beat!” Madison wants the fight now! But Jade says Rayne should take some days off first. Kiera Hogan gets in from behind! She kicks Rayne, but Rayne turns things back, CROSS RAYNE!

Will Rayne add yet another title to her resume? Or will she just be another number on the undefeated streak?

 

AEW looks at the coming Tornado Tag match!

Rey Fenix tells Andrade and Rush, “FINALLY, it’s time! For you to put up or shut up.” But Rush says, “If they want a fight, then we’ll give them a fight!” Andrade wants Rush to tranquilo. Los Lucha Brothers need to wait until Wednesday. Alex Abrahantes says that if La Faccion Ingobernables really is the best luchadors, then the match needs to be lucha rules! LFI IS the best, second to none! But Penta says #CeroMiedo! Will nothing stop these two teams from tearing it down with their tornado tag?

 

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Men is cut off by “Smart” Mark Sterling already! And Sterling says Swerve must be pretty pleased with himself. Swerve won last week’s Handicap Match, but he pinned the lawyer. Big whoop! Tonight, they have a STREET FIGHT! Anything goes! They still have the Premier Athlete, and now they have “the technical beast,” Josh Woods! A national wrestling champion, a former ROH Pure Champion, and Keith Lee met him last week. Woods helped Keith take a little nap, didn’t he?

Sterling’s guys laugh that up, but Swerve just tells Sterling to shut up. They had to go through all this trouble, all this red tape, petitions and interrupting celebrations, all disrespectful, hence the cake in Sterling’s face. All they had to do was ask, and step up like men. But if they wanna mess around, then the champs can do that, too. Keith says that Sterling claims to be smart, but there is nothing smart in him asking for this Street Fight. And to Woods, “Listen, little man. You stepped to the wrong people, and you’re gonna find out today, when we’re done with you, you’ll be nothing more than a footnote on our journey to a properly ranked tag team.”

Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Sterling’s #PremierGoods be nothing but trash compared to the Limitless House?

Tag Team Street Fight: Swerve in Our Glory VS Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling!

Both teams get out of the ring and split up, the brawl is on! The bell rings and Woods RAMS Swerve into railing! Swerve CLUBS back, but Woods RAMs him into the apron! Keith RAMS Nese into railing! And then CLUBS him down! Nese drew the short straw here but Woods RAMS Swerve into more railing! Keith glare at Woods but he has Nese to TOSS him aside. Now Woods and Keith get face to face, and Woods throws a forearm! Keith grins but Woods throws more shots! Keith GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Swerve fires forearms on Nese, Nese runs in but Swerve drop toeholds him into a chair!

Keith ROCKS Woods and Woods flounders away. Keith looms over Woods, drags him up, and Swerve joins Keith in mugging Woods against railing! Fans rally up, Woods throws hands but Swerve BOOTS Woods down! Nese returns, to throw PROTEIN POWDER in Keith’s face! Keith sputters after being blinded, but Nese eats up that powder. Swerve KICKS Nese right in the powder! Swerve then brings Nese around and whips him into steel steps! Swerve dusts Keith off, then looks under the ring to bring out a toolbox! Swerve CHUCKS it but Nese narrowly dodges it! The box breaks apart against the steps!

Woods CLOBBERS Swerve from behind! Woods shouts, “Whose house now?!” Keith asks for water to wash out the powder, fans offer some and Keith takes a bottle. Swerve RAMS Woods into steel steps and now Keith can see. Nese is on the apron, he leaps to CLOBBER Keith with part of the toolbox! Swerve brings Woods around to fireman’s carry, but Woods slips off and ROCKS Swerve with a right! And then suplexes to run and SLAM Swerve on the steel steps! “This is Daddy’s house now!” Sterling cheers for his guys as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Woods drags Swerve up, brings him around, and stomps him down. Woods rains down fists and hammering arms on Keith while Nese puts Swerve in the ring. Nese tosses a trash can into the ring, tries with the lid, but that doesn’t make it. Woods catches the lid, though, and Nese puts another can in the ring. Sterling even gets a table! Nese puts a can in one corner, stomps Swerve, but Swerve fires off hands! Nese ROCKS Swerve, then puts him in a corner. Sterling sets up the table, Nese whips Swerve into the trash can! Cover, TWO! Nese argues but he count is the count. Woods drags Swerve up to whip and KNEE against ropes!

Woods then hits n EXPLODER onto the trash can lid! Swerve sputters and flounders, but Nese drags him back up. Nese whips but Swerve stops from being sent outside! Swerve throws hands, BOOTS Nese, then stomps a mudhole in! Woods SMACKS Swerve with the trash can lid! Keith climbs but Sterling anchors him! Woods SMACKS Keith with the lid! Woods drags Swerve to a cover, TWO! Woods is annoyed but Swerve kicks him. Nese and Woods mug Swerve, then Nese scrapes Keith out. Nese drags Swerve over and Woods helps put Swerve on the apron. They mug Swerve, then Nese reels Swerve in.

Nese lifts but Swerve blocks! Woods CLUBS Swerve, but Swerve throws an elbow!  Nese kicks Swerve, stomps Keith, and Woods half nelsons Swerve. Nese soaks up the heat while Woods CLUBS Swerve. Nese stomps Kieth again, then goes back to Swerve. Nese points to the table, but Keith grabs at Nese! Nese stomps Keith, Woods and Swerve brawl, and AEW returns to single picture. Nese throat chops Swerve! Nese reels him in, Woods helps get Swerve up, but Swerve fights for dear life! Swerve throws body shots and ROCKS Nese with a right!

Keith tells this is on Sterling! But Nese DROPKICKS the chair into Keith, then Woods BOOTS it into him! Keith is still standing, so they DOUBLE DDT Keith onto the chair! Double cover, but Swerve is up top! 450 SPLASH breaks the pin!! Fans are thunderous as all four men are down! Sterling hurries to get another table! Sterling gets that in the ring while fans chant “This is Awesome!” Nese takes ownership of the table and sets it up. Nese drags Swerve up, but Swerve KICKS Nese down! Swerve aims, Nese sits back up, and fans fire up for the “Whose House?” “Swerve’s house!” But Sterling CLOBBERS swerve with a WRENCH!

Winners: Swerve in Our Glory, by pinfall

The champs got one hell of a fight, but they still won the fight! Will Sterling give up on going after Keith & Swerve? Who will be up next for the AEW World Tag Team Champions?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage as part of this big week AEW has going. Moxley VS Warner was a wild opener, and of course there was blood, and of course Moxley won. Warner did great, he’s definitely got a strong career ahead of him. Moxley has momentum going into his match with Jericho, that title match will be great. And with that promo from Lucha Bros and LFI, Quake by the Lake is going to be great with that tornado tag. Really good backstage interview segments but uh, is QT trying to turn The Factory into a mafia parody? I really do wonder what is up with Comoroto’s outfit. But I feel like Starks is going to have to fight The Factory AND Hobbs on his own at this point. And Best Friends going into the Trios Division makes sense. They’ll help fill out the tournament, but sadly, I don’t see them as a finalist.

Konosuke of course gets a win off Nemeth, a little surprised this wasn’t on that bonus episode of Elevation. Now, is it just me, or was that Madison Rayne VS Leila Grey match really clunky? Is Rayne not as good as her resume suggests? And I’m pretty sure Jade beats Rayne to keep her streak going. I would be really disappointed if AEW was able to sign Rayne by offering her that. But at least we finish strong with that awesome Tag Team Street Fight. I knew Sterling would get involved, but kudos to him for taking that table spot. And naturally, the champions win. Keith & Swerve still have time to find contenders for All Out, I can’t wait to see where they go with this.

My Score: 8.5/10
