CM Punk joins commentary!

The Best of the World has fans singing Cult of Personality all over again as he joins Excalibur, Tony Schiavone and good ol’ Jim Ross for the night.

 

Adam Cole VS Jungle Boy!

The Panama City Playboy brings the BOOM to Rochester, but will he prove he’s the future of AEW over the front man of Jurassic Express? Or will Jack Perry be living the Jungle Life at his expense?

The bell rings and fans still sing with Tarzan Boy but Cole tells JB it doesn’t matter. They tie up, go back and forth in the deadlock but Cole gets to a waistlock then headlock. Fans duel as JB powers up but Cole holds tight. JB throws him off to get an arm but Cole headscissors. JB kips free, Cole headlocks again and puts JB in a corner. The ref counts, Cole lets off and whips corner to corner. JB goes up but Cole knows the over is coming so he hangs back. Cole headlocks and hits a takeover, but JB makes it a cover! ONE, and Cole grinds the headlock. Fans rally, JB fights up and powers Cole to ropes. The ref calls for the break and Cole lets off, but he and JB get chippy with strikes!

JB headlocks and grinds Cole down but Cole fights up to power out. JB runs Cole over! Fans fire up for JB as he stands over Cole, but Cole gets up. Knuckle lock, but Cole kicks and throws a haymaker! Cole stomps JB to a corner, throws more hands then wrenches and whips corner to corner. JB reverses. Cole goes up but JB sees the over and waistlocks. Knuckle lock and CHOP! JB goes up and up and rebounds to arm-drag! Cole gets up but JB dropkicks him out! JB kips up and fans are thunderous as Cole paces. JB waits on Cole as a ring count climbs. Fans are counting along, Cole slides in just to refresh things then bails right back out.

JB gives chase, Cole gets back in and stomps JB down. Cole gets JB up to bump off buckles, then he runs in, into a BOOT! JB goes up but Cole SHOVES him to the floor! Cole soaks up the cheers and jeers as JB clutches his head and legs. Cole goes out to fetch JB, bumps him off the apron, then stomps JB around. Cole puts JB in the ring, drags him up and turns him for a NECKBREAKER! JB sits up, Cole JAMS his knee into JB’s back. Cole clamps on a chinlock and grinds JB to the mat. Fans rally up and JB stands, throws body shots, and runs, but into a BIG back elbow! Cole points to himself and fans are again torn.

Cole stalks JB to ropes, drags him back up and into the corner. Cole wrenches and whips JB corner to corner hard, and JB hits buckles to fall to the mat. Cole grins as he watches JB gets back up. Cole throws forearms, wrenches and whips JB corner to corner then storms over, but JB elbows and forearms and CHOPS! JB whips, Cole reverses but JB dropkicks a leg out! JB keeps moving, Cole sidesteps but the COMEBACK LARIAT takes him down! Fans fire up behind JB as he gets Cole up and suplexes, but Cole wrenches out to throw a forearm. JB throws it back and the two go back and forth. Fans duel with Tarzan Boy and BOOM, JB BOOTS but Cole ENZIGURIS!

JB HEEL KICKS, Cole BOOTS! Cole brings JB up, but JB suplexes to a BRAINBUSTER! Fans are thunderous again as both men are down! Fans cheer for “A E DUB!” as Cole and JB slowly get up. Cole runs in, JB OVERHEAD suplexes him into buckles! Then dead lift GERMANS! Bridging cover, TWO! JB holds on and hoists Cole up to the top rope backwards. JB pulls Cole into a Tree of Woe but Cole knees him away! Cole sits up but JB KICKS him in the back! JB puts Cole back in the Tree, goes corner to corner and back again for a basement dropkick! Cole flops out of the Tree, JB covers, TWO! JB grows a bit frustrated now but Cole’s tougher than that.

JB drags Cole up, CLUBS him, then wrenches to a torture rack! Cole turns that into a cradle, TWO! Cole turns JB around for a BACKSTABBER! Cole gets JB back up, suplexes to a LAST SHOT! Cover, TWO!! JB survives and Cole is learning JB is tough, too! Fans keep rallying and dueling as Cole gets back up. JB slowly sits up, Cole stalks over and talks trash. Cole pie faces JB, fans boo, but JB SLAPS Cole back! JB gets Cole for a POISON-RANA! JB runs and BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! But JB hurries to wrench, pump handle and rack, SHELLSHOCKED! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives and JB is seeing why he was NXT Triple Crown BAYBAY!

“This is Awesome!” but far from over as JB has to get Cole back up. JB pie faces Cole then runs, but into a SUPERKICK! JB falls out of the ring, Cole takes a moment to catch his breath, and a ring count begins. Cole goes to the corner as the count reaches 4 of 10, but he goes to the apron. Cole aims as JB stands, but JB avoids the sunrise! JB runs and DIVES into a JUMP KICK! Cole hurries to a corner but JB returns to FLYING RANA!! Both men crash to the floor and fans are thunderous! JB hobbles over, gets Cole up and in the ring, then step-in springboards, into a SUPERKICK! Cole is up top, PANAMA SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO?!?! More like 2.99!!

Punk says this kind of action is why he wants to do commentary on his nights off! Cole drags JB up and pulls down a kneepad! Cole runs, ALL ABOUT THE- NO! SNARE TRAP!! JB has Cole caught!! Fans are going nuts as Cole drags himself and JB towards ropes! JB switches grip to get more torque but Cole is almost there! JB drags Cole away but Cole boots him out of the ring! JB returns, gets around but Cole grabs the ref! MULE KICK LOW BLOW!! ALL ABOUT THE BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

Cole grins as he gets away with that one! Jungle Jack Perry almost had The Elite’s prodigal son, but The Elite (The, the Elite!) come out to celebrate with their buddy. The Young Bucks, the Good Brothers, Brandon Cutler, Michael Nakazawa, Kenny Omega and Don Callis all strut their way to the ring as AEW goes to break.

 

AEW returns and The Elite is all in the ring.

Karl Anderson wants Rochester to welcome the #SuperElite. To be Elite, you gotta have: the Impact Tag Team Champions, The Good Brothers; Adam Cole BAYBAY; the AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega; and the greatest tag team that’s ever been in the ring, the Young Bucks! And though they don’t have the AEW World Tag Team Championships, they’re still EVP’s: Extremely Violent People! YEP! And then we’ve got Nakazawa and Cutler. Cole then gets the mic to say “I told you so,” because he told us all that he’d beat Jungle Boy, and that’s what he just did! “On top of that, I did it by myself. And do you now why? Because Adam Cole Baybay is ELITE.”

Cole says on top of that, Adam Cole Baybay is undefeated! Cutler gets the mic and says The Elite- SHUT UP, BRANDON. Nick takes the mic and asks Rochester if they’re ready to hear the best promo in all of pro-wrestling! Fans are torn but Nick hands it over to Nakazawa! Wait, what? Nakazawa tells the CM Punk chants to shut up! “I have nothing to say!” He then hands the mic to Omega. Omega says his telephone’s been ringing off the hook, his social medias, from Twitter to “The Gram” to Facebook to even MySpace, full to the brim with the same thing over and over again: “That was possibly the greatest match I’ve ever seen. That was probably AEW Dynamite’s greatest match.” And Omega says, “That’s cool. But see if I care.”

Omega tells Bryan Danielson that he took Omega to his limit. Bryan kicked him in his chest, in his belly, and then cashed in on the promise of kicking his head in. Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” But Omega says Bryan couldn’t get the job done! The other problem? Bryan has ZERO RECORD, no rematch, and will never see Omega in the ring again. But speaking of, here comes BRYAN DANIELSON! Bryan has a mic to say, “Let’s see. Do you guys wanna see a rematch between me and Kenny Omega?” “YES! YES! YES!” Well the fans want a rematch, Bryan wants a rematch, but it appears Omega doesn’t have the balls to give us one! Fans chant “NO BALLS! NO BALLS!” at Omega.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Kenny ‘No Balls’ Omega!” The Elite are upset over that on but fans chant, “Kenny No Balls!” Punk says to put that on a shirt. So now then, let’s see if anyone else in the Elite has balls! Bryan challenges any one of them to a match on Rampage! Omega says that’s funny. Big words from a small little man. Why Rampage? How about right now? Fans do like the sound of that. Omega says today’s lucky day, Bryan is on The Price is Right! Well okay then, but Bryan’s not coming alone! He calls out his back-up! The Elite Hunter, Frankie Kazarian! Captain Charisma, Christian Cage! Jungle Boy and Jurassic Express!

The Elite runs away, not ready to fight an even 6v6! “Kenny No Balls” isn’t doing himself any favors, but when and where will he and The Elite have to take on their rivals?

 

Backstage interview with The Lucha Brothers.

They and Alex Abrahantes stand proud as Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M are the DUAL AEW World and AAA Tag Team Champions. But Andrade El Idolo interrupts already as he tells the “kids” congrats on having those belts. But where is Pac? No se? Jose has something to say, oddly. It has been a long time since they’ve defended the AAA Tag Team Championships, so it’s about time they do. Oh? Who is he to say that? Andrade says he can get his many luchador friends to take those titles. Fenix says anywhere, anytime, and Penta adds it’s because they have #CeroMiedo! Who, then, will El Idolo enlist as his lucha libre hitmen to take out the Lucha Brothers?

 

Cody Rhodes & Lee Johnson w/ Brandi Rhodes & Arn Anderson VS Matt Sydal & Dante Martin!

The American Nightmare is perhaps still reeling from his loss to Malakai Black, but maybe changing things up with a tag match can help him through. Will he and Big Shotty be able to ground the high-flying duo standing before them?

Teams sort out and Cody starts with Dante, despite Arn’s advice. They tie up, Cody headlocks and hits a takeover. Dante fights up as fans chant, “Cody Sucks!” Dante puts Cody on the ropes, lets off cleanly, and Cody cools off to tag in Johnson. Sydal tags in and now he circles with Johnson. They tie up, Sydal waistlocks, spins and headlocks to a takeover. Sydal floats to stand Johnson up for a snapmare, then again, and then a flying-mare! Johnson sits up into a KICK! Tag to Dante, he and Johnson circle as Arn coaches up Big Shotty. Johnson and Dante tie up, Dante waistlocks but Johnson headlocks.

Dante headlocks back, Johnson powers up and things speed up, Johnson runs Dante over. Things speed up again, Dante LEAPS over Johnson then kicks low. Dante whips but Johnson blocks and slips around to a back suplex. Dante lands on his feet and shoves Johnson to a corner, but Johnson goes up and over to handspring and run back in. Dante FLIPS up and over, then dodges a leg sweep with a handspring. The two stand off and get forehead to forehead. Cody and Sydal jump in to keep this from getting heated, but then Cody throws a forearm to Sydal! Sydal hits back, Dante and Johnson brawl, but Cody throws Sydal out as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cody runs and goes up and up to FLY! Sydal gets clear and Cody crashes! Sydal gets him back with a FLYING KNEE! Dante bumps Johnson off buckles, whips him to ropes but Johnson dodges to DIVE out onto Sydal! Cody and Johnson regroup but Dante runs in to SPRINGBOARD SWANTON! Dante wipes them both out and he’s all fired up! Sydal and Dante regroup and they get Johnson into the ring. The ref restores order and Dante drags Johnson over to tag Sydal. They double whip and leap frog to then double dropkick! Sydal covers, TWO! Sydal keeps on Johnson with a facelock, then floats to get the legs, BOW ‘N’ ARROW!

Johnson endures being bent back but Sydal lets him down to DOUBLJE STOMP his back! Tag to Dante, he runs in to FLIPPING SENTON! Cover, TWO! Dante keeps Johnson from Cody and bumps him hard off buckles. Tag to Sydal, they mug Johnson in the corner, then Sydal CHOPS! Sydal wrenches, reels Johnson in and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEPS! Sydal puts a half straitjacket on Johnson as AEW returns to single picture. Johnson fights up, throws body shots but Sydal half nelsons. Johnson fights free but Sydal elbows free. Sydla runs but into a dropkick! Both men are down, crawl for their corners, hot tags to Cody and Dante! Cody rallies, kick to Rhodes Uppercut! But Dante dropkicks!

Dante runs but into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Cody gets Dante up, whips but Dante goes WAY up to RANA! Dante and Cody throw big haymakers and forearms, and Dante gets the edge! Dante whips but Cody blocks and ROCKS him with a kick! Cody DISASTER KICKS Sydal, then spins Dante around and hooks him up! DIN’S FIRE!! Cover, TWO!! Dante survives and Cody is shocked! Cody gets Dante up as fans rally and scoops. Sydal gets in, Dante slips off, Sydal ROUNDHOUSES Cody down! Johnson gets in but Sydal RANAS him back out! Dante goes up and leaps for a HUGE missile dropkick! Cover, TWO!

Sydal rallies the fans up as Dante gets back up. Dante goes to a corner and climbs, springboards and TRIANGLE QUEBRADA! Cover, TWO!! Cody scrambles away, Dante runs in but is tossed out! Cody BOOTS Sydal down, Johnson brings him over to tag in! Sydal runs back in, Johnson dodges but Sydal SOBATS! Sydal facelocks but Johnson schoolboys to a SUPERKICK! Sydal bails out, Dante returns band rolls Johnson up, TWO!! Dante runs in, Johnson dodges to SUPERKICK! Fisherman for the USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Johnson and Cody win!

Winners: Cody Rhodes & Lee Johnson, by pinfall

The Nightmare Family wins as Johnson makes sure Cody doesn’t get in Cody’s own way. Tony Schiavone joins them in the ring to congratulate them on the big win. Fans boo but Cody says he knows the audience waited a long time for this show. Why wait? Where is Malakai Black!? Arn tells Cody to stop talking right now. July 7th, Malakai came into AEW and has systematically destroyed the family. This is Cody’s fight. Malakai destroyed Cody and Cody started taking off his boots. What the hell was that about? They didn’t talk that one through! Then in the rematch, Cody gets Malakai hurt but was worried more about Arn. Arn says to hell with worrying about him! It isn’t about Arn!

Arn tells Cody he should’ve finished the fight. Now here’s the difference that’s gonna keep him from going even an inch further. Malakai Black is an assassin, a predator, he will do anything to destroy the man he’s in the ring with. Just asks Lee! Or Arn’s son, Brock. Arn would take the fight but he’s just too damn old. But there are big differences between Arn and Cody is this. “You pull up to a red light, a man jerks your door open and says, ‘Outta the car, I’m taking your car.'” Cody would say, “Okay, take it. Just don’t hurt me.” Arn would pull out his Glock, put it on the man’s forehead and spill his brains on the concrete!

He’s ARN ANDERSON, and all that implies, so he’ll be damned if he’s gonna coach a loser! C’mon, Lee, at least you listen to him. The Coach is leaving Cody behind until Cody gets his guts back. What must the American Nightmare do to keep his life from becoming a nightmare?

 

Six Man Tag: Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston & Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Anthony Greene & Bear Country!

The violent and unpredictable crew is sticking together for another wild night! Will the Maniac, the Mad King and the Relentless One be ready for a throwback with #RetroAG and the Bear Country boys, Boulder & Bronson?

Teams don’t even sort out because Mox goes right after Boulder! Kingston gets at Bronson so Darby and Greene stare down as those animals spill out of the ring. Greene fires up, but then offers Darby a handshake. Darby takes it, to WRING Greene out! Darby rolls, Magistrol, ONE! Greene gets up but Darby headlocks. Greene powers out but Darby runs him over. Things speed up, Darby arm-drags Greene and clamps onto the arm. Fans rally as Darby wrenches and wristlocks then tags in Kingston. Kingston CLUBS Greene’s arm, CHOPS him against ropes, then whips him to ropes. Kingston KNEES low, whips again and then kitchen sink knees Greene down.

Tag to Moxley but Greene gets away! Boulder tags in and the brawling continues! Moxley dodges to CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Moxley runs but Boulder rams shoulders. Neither falls so Moxley goes again but Boulder rams him again. So Mox CHOPS Boulder! Moxley runs but leaps into Boulder’s arms! Bronson tags in, Boulder POWERSLAMS and Bronson BACK SENTONS! Cover, TWO! Bronson tags Boulder back in and Boulder DECKS Kingston! Bronson goes up, Boulder gives him an Electric Chair Lift, but Kingston returns to dropkick Boulder’s legs out! Bronson falls and staggers up but he ducks the uraken to back suplex, only for Kingston block.

Kingston switches and GERMAN SUPLEXES Bronson away! Bronson gets folded but Boulder clamps onto Kingston! Moxley waistlocks Boulder and gets him up but Boulder elbows him away. Boulder runs at Moxley but Moxley dodges! Greene tags in before the SNAP GERMAN! Greene lurks, but Darby sees the Bears and SUPER COFFIN DROPS! Greene SUPERKICKS Moxley, blocks Kingston’s kick to KNEE him back, and then goes up top fast! Greene does a pray, tightropes and CROSSBODIES! But he bounces off the maniacs! VIOLENT CROWN!! Cover, the wild things win!

Winners: Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston & Darby Allin, by pinfall

Kingston makes sure that though they won, this moment is about Brodie Lee by borrowing a fan’s Brodie Lee sign. Sting gets to do the honors by giving Greene a SCORPION DEATH DROP! Will these violent icons continue to roll on into the Fall?

 

AEW hears from Ruby Soho and Britt Baker.

The Runaway says, “I had 20 thousand people. They were there with me that night. I have never felt like I had so many people in my corner.” The Doctor says that Ruby may have had 20 thousand singing a song, but that’s all. Britt proved again why she is the most dominant woman in pro-wrestling. Ruby knows she can’t just jump back to the front of the line so there’s work to do. Britt says, “Back of the line, babe.” Ruby Nono should know what it’s like to hit rock bottom. Ruby promises the next time she and Britt meet, Britt will learn the consequences of taking something from Ruby she’s wanted long before she ever even got here.

 

16 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy & The Dark Order VS The Hardy Family Office!

Talk about a MASSIVE match! Rare you see anything get even past 10, but we have an EIGHT VS EIGHT right here in Rochester! Freshly Squeezed stands alongside the men Brodie Lee brought out from the shadows and into the light, and they’re ready to bust up Big Money Matt’s conglomerate! But before the match, Hardy has the mic. “A year and a half ago, I was supposed to make my debut, right here in Rochester, New York! But fortunately, that was DELETED, because this place didn’t deserve Matt Hardy’s debut!” Hardy says Rochester is an awful town, and it only produces awful people, and doesn’t deserve a legend like him!

But Cassidy’s entrance interrupts! He’ll be facing Jack Evans in a Hair VS Hair match for Rampage, but he clearly doesn’t mind a quick tune-up. Preston Vance has a new Deathstroke inspired mask as he stands with all of the Dark Order, including Negative One! Is this the moment all seven stars align and win not just as a faction, but as a family?

The teams sort out and Butcher starts with Alex Reynolds, but then Evil Uno tags himself in. That doesn’t sit well already but then Alan Angels, also in a new mask, tags himself in. There’s already arguing but Angels throws off the mask to shove Uno! Butcher and Blade take advantage of the dysfunction and attack all three! Butcher shoves Angels to the corner, hauls him up and suplexes, then Blade adds a CROSSBODY! Cover, Vance breaks it! Blade drags Angels over, Marq Quen tags in and they mug Angels. Tag to Kassidy, Private Party mugs Angels and whips him corner to corner to then bring him back for a BOOT! FLAPJACK BULLDOG!

Kassidy SLAPS Angels down to cover, TWO! Angels hurries and tags in Cassidy, the one man not part of the drama. Private Party runs in but Cassidy dodges them both to double dropkick! And kip up! He fires off those “vicious” kicks but then Jack Evans attacks from behind! Cabana gets in and now everyone joins in! AEW goes picture in picture as it’s a chaotic brawl!

The HFO starts to take control as they throw Dark Order members out, and then Kassidy is cocky as he gets Cassidy up. Kassidy suplexes, covers, TWO! Kassidy drags Cassidy up to suplex again! Cover, TWO! Kassidy tags in Johl and they mug Cassidy. Jora Johl suplexes, holds Cassidy up for a counter of 10, then tags in Quen before the SLAM! Quen slingshots for the senton, then taunts The Dark Order. Quen stomps Cassidy, stands on him, then tags in Kassidy. Private Party whip but Cassidy reverses! Quen goes out, Kassidy whips Cassidy but runs into a boot. Cassidy sends Kassidy out but SILLY STRING FLOPS! Cassidy steps over Kassidy to lukewarm tag Stu Grayson!

Player 2 rallies on Private Party! OVERHEAD Belly2Belly for Kassidy! BOOTS for the mercs and haymakers for the Hybrid2! Blade gets in, Stu dodges to CLOBBER him! Stu whips, Blade reverses and Hardy dumps him out! The HFO mugs Stu but Uno goes right at Blade! The ref keeps him back, Stu is put in and Blade drags him up to tag in Johl. They mug Stu, tag to Angelico and he throws JABS and KICKS! Tag to Butcher, he mugs Stu and then tags Angelico back in. Tag to Evans, TH2 bring Stu around but he fights them off! AEW returns to single picture as TH2 mugs Stu again, then they DECK members of the Dark Order! Stu dodges TH2 to DOUBLE PELE!

Hot tag to Reynolds! Number 3 rallies on the TH2! Dropkick and handspring, but Evans kicks low. Evans runs but Uno moves Reynolds aside to BOOT Evans down! Uno and Reynolds look to each other, Angelico runs in but they both kick and whip. Angelico breaks up the double back drop with a kick to Uno, then he throws Reynolds into Uno! Uno falls out of the ring, Reynolds BOOTS Angelico away! Evans waistlocks but Reynolds breaks free! Pop-up KNEE! Cassidy tags in, he goes up and FALLING SPLASHES! Cover, TWO!! Evans survives but now Uno and Reynolds argue! Uno couldn’t tell Angelico shoved Reynolds into him!? Uno storms off, Stu hurries after.

Cassidy aims at Evans, but Evans turns Orange Punch into Backslide Bridge! Angels breaks it and all hell breaks loose again! The ref shouts for order, Cabana also tries to get Uno to realize what happened, but Negative One brings in special reinforcements: Anna Jay, Tay Conti and MAMA ONE, Amanda Huber! Negative One throws the papers at Uno!! And Amanda shouts at the boys to squash this beef because this is for Brodie! Fans are thunderous and Uno realizes he’s been in the wrong! Uno, Stu and Cabana run back in to join the fray!! The Dark Order clears the ring now, and Rochester is loving this!

Stu FLIES out onto Hardy and Quen! Angels and Cabana coordinate, ASAI MOONSAULTS IN STEREO!! Down go Angelico and Butcher on one side, Jora Johl on the other! Vance and Reynolds team up, UNLUCKY 13! The Powerbomb Moonsault takes out The Blade! Kassidy returns and Vance SPEARS him off the apron onto Hardy, Quen and the Butcher! This brings things back to just Cassidy and Evans! Hot tag to Johl, he runs in at Cassidy, but John Silver tags in to GAMANGIRI Johl! Number 4 CANNONBALLS onto Blade, EuroUppers Butcher, steps on Angelico, and Cabana gives him the go-ahead to BOOT Evans and CLOBBER Private Party!!

Silver is up top, fans are ELECTRIC, and Johl stands up. Silver leaps but Johl gets under, only to run into a TEN OUTTA TEN SPINEBUSTER! Hardy gets up to get an ORANGE PUNCH! Vance hauls Johl up, and feeds him to the BEAVER BOY BLITZ!! Uno and Stu get in on this one, #FINISHHIM! FATALITY!! Silver covers, the Dark Order and Orange Cassidy win!!

Winners: Orange Cassidy & The Dark Order, by pinfall

Finally, all the internal strife is put aside with big handshakes and even bigger hugs! Amanda, Tay and Jay join in, and Negative One is hoisted up onto Vance’s shoulders. Reconciliation on a Wednesday night, you know what that means! Will the Dark Order finally be running on all cylinders towards the top of AEW?

 

AEW hears from Lio Rush.

“Tony K’s been hitting me up for weeks saying that he wants me to be All Elite. Well here I am. You know me. The Man of the Hour, Lio Rush. But you can also call me LBO Lio, because I’m a businessman.” But what is an LBO? It stands for “Leverage Buy Out.” Lio borrows money against companies that need a little guidance. Lio’s the capital, he runs the ship, he makes profit for himself and for the companies, then uses that profit to pay off loans and make sure he and his are straight. That’s true success and wealth. Lio has the keys, it just takes some risk, Rush, repeat. Lio promises it’ll work here, because he’s done it before. Will this investment have big returns for both Lio and AEW?

 

FTR speaks.

Dax Harwood says his daddy always told him, “Son, excuses are just crutches for the week and the untalented. You ain’t weak and you ain’t untalented.” Daddy Harwood was right, but this might be an excuse. FTR lost themselves on the fact Cash Wheeler almost lost his life, and FTR lost themselves on the fact they wanted to embarrass Darby & Sting. But tonight, with the greatest mind in tag team wrestling steering FTR’s ship, they are revitalized, rejuvenated and refocused. And that is very bad news for everyone else in AEW, but very good news for FTR and The Pinnacle. #TopGuys OUT.

 

Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year are in the ring.

He wants to hear from Chris Jericho and see what’s on his mind. But oh wait, Jorge Masvidal’s knee is in Jericho’s mind and now Jericho is at the plastic surgeon’s office, trying to get it removed. But if the fans could shut up and show respect to their elders for once, Lambert will give Jericho a compliment. Jericho’s had one of the greatest careers in this business. And the greatest was taking a floundering start-up promotion stuck in poor booking decisions and recruiting skinny acrobats, putting it on his shoulder, and injected it with rocket fuel to become the hottest promotion in decades.

But not withstanding the series of unfortunate events, the story has an even happier ending than “a Millennial’s night alone in their mom’s basement, if you know what I mean.” Judging from the look of the supposed men in this crowd, they know what he means. As fate would have it, Chris Jericho decided to come out and confront The Men of the Year, as well as American Top Team, “and it was that decision that brought his illustrious career to an end. We bashed his brains into scrambled eggs at Rampage. He will never wrestle again. There will be no more Fozzy records. His earning potential right now is that same as yours: ZERO.”

American Top Team chopped off the head of the AEW snake, made Tony Conman’s job a lot more difficult, and best of all, the junior jock riders that want to see the circus will never again swing on the balls of Jericho! Fans tell Lambert to STFU but he’s already done as Scorpio takes the mic. He tells the fans to shut up, and says about a year ago, he stood in the ring and looked right in the camera and asked, “Are you paying attention?” Scorpio was one of the first champions in AEW! He’s had one of the best winning percentages since DAY ONE. Not that long ago, he climbed the ladder, “grabbed the giant Sonic ring, and become the Face of the Revolution, and it still wasn’t good enough!”

Scorpio says one person who was paying attention was Dan Lambert. “He sees what you ignore! He sees Scorpio Sky as a main eventer! Just like Ethan Page!” Ethan says someone NOT paying attention are the idiots in the crowd! Because they look past guys like Ethan & Scorpio! They don’t see the Men of the Year as tough guys? Why? Just cuz they don’t throw up middle fingers? They don’t swear? They don’t paint their faces? They don’t wear faux leather? The fans think that all makes someone tough? Y’know what’s tough? Two black belts in martial arts! Never being pinned or submitted in AEW!

Ethan is overlooked by not having action figures, show posters or a part in the show intro! But Ethan isn’t going overlooked and neither is Scorpio! Ethan has the best smile in pro-wrestling, the tightest pecs in the game, dresses like a champ, talks like a champ and walks like a champ! And now, he rolls with champions! American Top Team, Men of the Year, they’re THE top team! Strong words but will they back it all up from here on out?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“AEW Dynamite’s second anniversary. In these two years, many things have happened. Moving to America, the women’s tournament in Japan, and being the longest reigning champion in AEW.” But now, Shida is after another great honor: first woman to 50 wins!

Serena Deeb applauds Shida’s win-loss record, but that 50th win won’t mean anything if it isn’t against her, the Woman of 1000 Holds. Shida is excited to face one of the wrestlers she respects most, but Serena says that she invites Shida to the Deeb Dojo. Shida vows to walk out of AEW’s second anniversary the winner against the best technical wrestler in the world. Will the Full Metal Warrior get the big 5-0 as Dynamite turns 2?

 

Anna Jay & Tay Conti VS Penelope Ford & The Bunny!

Two strong duos in the AEW Women’s Division are going to finally settle things, not just for Dark Order VS HFO but for themselves! Will #TayJay knockout the Superbad Girl and her even badder buddy? Or will the HFO at least get one winner’s purse for the week?

Teams don’t even sort out as Tay & Jay rush the ring. Ford & Bunny charge back but Tay & Jay avoid the haymakers to trip them up! Tay & Jay drag Ford & Bunny out, Tay ROCKS Ford with a right while Jay RAMS Bunny into steel steps! Tay snap suplexes Ford to the floor while Jay puts Bunny in the ring. The bell rings, Jay rains down fists on Bunny but Bunny shoves her away. Jay hits back then whips Bunny into the corner for a back elbow. Tag to Tay, they double whip Bunny and then double elbow her down! Cover, TWO! Conti grounds ‘n’ pounds but Ford kicks her down. Jay gets in, Ford ROCKS her with a right, but Conti spins Ford around for drop sayanagi after drop sayanagi!

Tay whips Ford to an open corner, tags Jay, and fans fire up! Tay & Jay each run to a corner, HEEL KICK for Bunny and PUMP KICK for Ford! Tay & Jay switch to do it again, but Bunny dodges and Tay tumbles to the outside! Jay gets distracted but Ford hits a BACKSTABBER! Feed to Bunny’s HOTSHOT, then Bunny sets Jay on the corner. Forearm to Ford’s TRIANGLE KNEE DROP! Fans rally and duel as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ford drags Jay in to rain down forearms, then she drags Jay over to ropes. Ford chokes Jay, thrashes her around but lets off as the ref counts. Ford turns Jay around for a HOTSHOT! Cover, TWO! Ford drags Jay over and tags in Bunny. They mug Jay and Bunny CLAWS Jay’s back! Bunny taunts Conti and distracts the ref so Ford can choke Jay! Bunny then runs in to STOMP Jay down. The bad girls get away with that one as Bunny brings Jay up and around. Bunny whips Jay into the corner again, tags in Ford, then Ford bump Jay off buckles. Ford goes corner to corner to handspring back elbow! Ford goes side to side, Bunny tags in and Ford BOOTS Jay down!

Bunny runs in, SLIDING D! Cover, TWO! Bunny sighs but sits Jay up to KICK her in the back. Bunny wraps on a chinlock and grinds Jay down as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and both women are down! Bunny and Jay crawl, hot tags to Ford and Conti! Conti rallies with big clotheslines and fans fire up as she SUPERKICKS! Conti spins Ford, goes up and up and leaps to CROSSBODY! Conti drags Ford up, tags Jay and they double snap suplex! Cover, Bunny breaks it! Conti storms in but Bunny throws her out! Jay staggers up, Ford CLUBS her while Bunny CLUBS and KICKS Conti around. Jay swings on Ford but Ford dodges by going Matrix, and springs up to get a STUNNER! Ford fireman’s carries for a GUT BUSTER DROP! Cover, TWO!! Jay survives and Ford is frustrated but fans fire up.

Ford puts Jay in a drop zone, climbs up top, and MOONSAULTS, but FLOPS as Jay moves! Bunny rushes in but Conti drags her back out! Spin and TAY K O!! Jay gets Ford up and wrenches, DANGEROUS JAY KICK, to the QUEENSLAYER!! Ford drops down and fades out, #TayJay wins!!

Winners: Tay Conti & Anna Jay, by submission

Retribution and another celebration for the Dark Order in Brodie Lee Country! Will AEW soon #JoinDarkOrder in all the divisions?

 

AEW looks closer at the coming Women’s Triple Threat.

Mark Sterling says that AEW is finally giving #JadeBrand the challenge she’s been asking for. This Friday on Rampage, Thunder Rosa AND Nyla Rose get their asses beat! But Thunder Rosa reminds us that in a Triple Threat, anything goes. There are no disqualifications, so “you are in store for a major party, ladies!” But Nyla tells Jade and Rosa not to worry. Their pain will be her pleasure! Vickie Guerrero laughs but will she be crying when the Native Beast gets caught by another hungry alpha female?

 

MJF is here!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman, with Wardlow right behind him, heads to the ring and already has a mic. “Cut my music, cut my music.” He’s from upstate, these lowlifes should pipe down. He wants this company to be successful and is willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen, so long as he is given what he deserves. MJF will get to that, but first, “we are on the precipice of something truly spectacular. This company keeps building more and more momentum, and whether I care to admit it or not, there are a handful of young men who have been here since the beginning who will keep pushing this company forward for the next couple of decades.”

Four men he thinks of exactly, like four pillars. Jungle Boy Jack Perry, MJF beat him. Sammy Guevara, MJF beat him. Darby Allin, blah blah blah whatever, and then the strongest pillar of all, the one who had the first match at All In, the first match in the history of AEW, and the youngest athlete to ever main event an AEW PPV. This pillar is a TWO-TIME Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion, the one who is better than you and you know it, MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN. MJF brings all of this up because without him, AEW ain’t s*it! He is the past, present and future of AEW, and that is why HE deserves to be AEW World Champion!!

PIPE DOWN, ROCHESTER! “Tony Khan, we’re real good friends, I love you. As a matter of fact, out of all the Khans in professional wrestling, you’re easily in my top two. However, if you don’t start giving me the opportunities I deserve, well I have other friends from back in the day…” Fans chant for “CM Punk! CM Punk!” and MJF is amused. But speaking of those friends, MJF could go back to MLW and call on BRUCE PRITCHARD. And Brucy’s on speed dial. But wait, here comes that third pillar, DARBY ALLIN! The Relentless One already got his workout in so he’s going to the ring to get in MJF’s face!

MJF wants everyone to hold on and says, “Well if it isn’t freaky deeky Darby! Listen up, buddy. As much as I love the whole school shooter, mime on a surfboard routine, not a huge fan of you interrupting me.” But MJF is sure as to why: Darby is jealous! But let MJF explain something to ol’ Darbarino, the Darbinator, “there is nothing wrong with being the second best guy.” Some of the best number two guys are incredible! Lou Gehrig, Scotty Pippin, and STING! Now MJF, he’s more like Wayne Gretzky, Babe Ruth and Michael Jordan. Darby asks if MJF is done talking. MJF keeps saying he’ll leave if he doesn’t get what he wants, so just GO! No one would care!

Darby says that he is AEW 4 Life until DEATH. How can MJF be the number one pillar when Darby’s been the one to win a title? Oh okay okay! Sick burn, Darb! But as much as MJF loves Darby’s Batman voice… MJF will back off because he does respect Darby for being straightedge. But do people know why Darby’s straightedge? Because when Darby was but a wee little pup, he’d decided to hop in the car with his drunken, sloppy, alcoholic uncle. And they went for a joyride, but they got into an accident. Darby’s uncle died that night, didn’t he? And that’s a travesty, but do you know why? Fans tell MJF he’s an A-Hole as MJF says “That night, the wrong man died!”

MJF eggs Darby on to hit him, but Darby instead keeps his cool and says no. He won’t hit MJF, because MJF will not break him. If MJF has anything else, now’s the time to keep talking. Darby dares MJF to keep talking. Oh, MJF isn’t gonna break Darby? Fine. They’re done. MJF goes out of the ring, Wardlow follows after. Darby just stares MJF down, but this fight has only just begun. Will Darby be the one to break MJF’s streak of singles victories?

 

Bryan Danielson has his Rampage opponent!

Nick Jackson of the Young Bucks steps up to his challenge! Will it be a one man Superkick Party? Or will Bryan prove that he’s got The Elite’s number?

The Dynamite Anniversary just got even bigger!

The Elite WILL face their hunters as it will be an 8 Man Tag! Adam Cole, the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega take on Bryan Danielson, Christian Cage and Jurassic Express! Will the American Dragon earn his way to that 1v1 rematch he wants with Omega? Or will the Cleaner clear him out of the way once and for all?

And on top of that, it is the return of the Casino Ladder Match! Who climbs up to bring down a golden opportunity for the AEW World Championship?

 

AEW hears from Sammy Guevara and Miro.

Sammy says, “I knew Fuego wanted to challenge Miro. I had no idea he was gonna put his f***ing car on the line.” Miro adds, “He kept coming back for more, betting his car, betting his wife, betting his apartment. Maybe he’s got a gambling problem, but that’s not my business.” Sammy knows Miro is over 6 feet, at least 250 pounds of all muscle and built like a Greek god. But friendship with Fuego aside, he’s been working for a title his whole career. Sammy used to do this in his backyard for nobody and nothing! His best friend may’ve lost the car, but Sammy can buy him a new one when they celebrate! That TNT Championship showdown is in the main event, after the break!

AEW TNT Championship: Miro VS Sammy Guevara!

We just heard from both men but now we see who backs words with action! Will the Redeemer “forgive” the Spanish God through a baptism by fire? Or will Sammy disillusion Miro and take that title for his own?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and only one can reign on high!

Fans are fired up as Miro paces and Sammy watches him closely. Sammy rushes in but Miro avoids the flying knee with ease. They circle, Sammy tries again but Miro SWATS him out of the air! Miro drops an elbow, then stomps Sammy before dragging him up and knocking him back down! Miro hauls Sammy up in a dead lift suplex! Fans are torn as Miro swaggers about. Miro stomps Sammy’s legs, clubs him on the shoulders, then stands him up to CLUB him in the back! Sammy crawls, Miro stalks up and looms over him. Fans duel as Miro stands Sammy up and swings. Sammy counter punches, throws forearms, then runs, but into a BIG elbow! Cover, ONE!!

Miro watches Sammy closely, brings him back up and takes the necklace up to choke Sammy! The ref counts, Miro lets off and the chain has broken. Miro takes the necklace, throws it away, then stands Sammy up to scoop. Sammy slips out, dodges and runs in to CROSSBODY himself and Miro out of the ring! Both men hit the floor and the ring count begins. Sammy POSTS Miro, CLUBS him, but Miro shoves him away. Miro runs in but is sent into steps! Sammy hurries to bump Miro off the steps, then he climbs up to SMACK Miro off them again! Sammy puts Miro in at 6 of 10, climbs up the corner and aims, SHOOTING STAR into Miro’s arms!!

Miro gets Sammy back up to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly him away! Fans are thunderous as AEW goes picture in picture!

Miro takes his time to gloat at the corners, but he doesn’t seem tog et a good enough reception. He finds the right one and stands up tall to soak up cheers and jeers. Miro then goes back to Sammy where he fell, drags him up and throws body shots and KICKS. Sammy falls over and Miro seems a bit disappointed. Miro goes out to walk around and cool off. Miro doesn’t want the fans to cheer, but Sammy goes out to CLOBBER him! Sammy POSTS Miro again, hobbles after him and CLUBS him, but Miro scoops Sammy to FALL AWAY SLAM! Sammy flounders and Miro storms over to stand on his head! The fans boo but Miro grinds his boot into Sammy’s face.

Miro drags Sammy back up, SLAPS him around, but Sammy fires forearms in return! Sammy CHOPS, forearms, repeat, but Miro POSTS him! Sammy flounders into the ring, Miro goes in to cover, TWO! Miro stalks Sammy, almost taunting him with his grin, and then wraps on a chinlock. Sammy endures as Miro squeezes tight and AEW returns to single picture. Fans rally up, Miro lets off to drive in elbow after elbow into Sammy’s shoulders, then he puts the chinlock back on. Miro grinds Sammy into the mat but fans still rally up behind him. Sammy fights back up and JAWBREAKERS free! Miro staggers but he whips Sammy to a corner.

Miro runs in but Sammy dodges and leaps, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Miro reaches up to the sky to gather up power, and he stands Sammy up to short arm LARIAT! Miro encourages fans to get louder as he stands Sammy up again. Short arm LARIAT! Sammy flounders around, fans want “One More Time!” Miro likes the sound of that and encourages them to get louder. Miro then stands Sammy up, runs, but into a SPANISH FLY!! Sammy fires up now and fans join him! Sammy aims and SUPERKICKS! Miro sits up but Sammy aims again, RUNNING KNEE! Sammy keeps Miro reeling, he runs in again but Miro gets around! GERMAN SUPLEX, but Sammy lands on his feet!

Miro runs in at Sammy but Sammy dodges, Miro goes up and over then to the floor! Miro flounders up now, Sammy builds speed to FLY over the corner!! Direct hit and fans lose their minds! Sammy gets Miro up, puts him into the ring then hurries up top! But Miro gets up so Sammy leaps over! Sammy leaps in, into a SWINGING URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Sammy survives and frustrates Miro! “This is Awesome!” but Miro is upset. Miro storms around, aims from a corner and stomps the mat. Miro wants Sammy to stand, and Sammy slowly rises.

The ref reprimands but Miro keeps pulling the top buckles.

But here comes Fuego! Fuego won’t let Miro take anymore pads away, but Miro DECKS him! Sammy returns, KNEE! Miro staggers into a bare buckle!!Sammy then gets Miro for a TORNADO DDT!!! Fuego’s spirit is helping Sammy! TORTURE RACK TO GO TO HOSPITAL!! Sammy hurries up top! SAMMY 630!! Cover, SAMMY WINS!!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

The Spanish God dethrones the false prophet! Brodie Lee would surely be proud of Sammy taking up the belt he loved so much! Negative One, Alan Angels, even Dante Martin, Capt. Shawn Dean, Matt Sydal and the rest of the Dark Order run out to celebrate with Sammy! Will this be a shining new era for AEW?


My Thoughts:

An awesome episode for AEW, especially with it being so much in honor of Jon Huber/Brodie Lee. As such, I really love that it was the moment The Dark Order got over their dysfunction as a faction in what was already a really exciting and fun 16 Man Tag. Also I think AEW just set the record for biggest tag match on number of participants. But I do wish we just went right into #TayJay VS Ford & Bunny. Yes, Men of the Year had a great promo to restate things they said from a Grand Slam backstage promo they had, but I do not need Dan Lambert making things gross with the tired cliché of being the bully saying nerds are in basements jackin’ it. We just needed Inner Circle VS Men of the Year, not an awful pro-wrestling VS MMA invasion crossover fusion.

Awesome stuff from Cole VS Jungle Boy to open, though. And we got more great stuff as the enemies of The Elite close in. Bryan VS Nick Jackson is going to be great for Rampage, the 8 Man at the Anniversary is going to be awesome, but somehow, someway, this has to lead to Omega VS Bryan at Full Gear. Lucha Brothers being called out by El Idolo and Jose was pretty good stuff, and I definitely like that we’re getting more AAA X AEW. Honestly, any AAA tag team could show up and it’s going to be a great match and great exposure for American audiences to AAA’s talent.

We got a great match out of Cody & Johnson VS Sydal & Dante, and I like that Johnson was the one taking charge at the end since Cody has to “get his head right.” I am really shocked that Arn went that far with his promo but hey, fans seemed into it. Cody’s got a crisis of confidence coming, but I feel like it should’ve been him getting mad at Arn and Johnson. Cody can bring up how hectic his life is being new father and EVP, among other things, so of course he’d struggle in the ring. It’d be understandable but also selfish, making for a good dynamic of Heel and Face for a Tweener Cody we haven’t seen in awhile. Also, it plugs Rhodes to the Top which is right up AEW’s alley.

Lio Rush delivered his promo well, but is he really going to be AEW’s stonks man like NXT has Cameron Grimes? Shida VS Deeb is going to be killer for the Anniversary, and I fully expect Shida to get her 50th for that night to make it very historic. FTR gave a good promo, in that it was mostly Dax giving that promo, but he really is a strong talker. I’m still sensing Santana & Ortiz will get in on the tag title scene first but FTR will still stay strong in some way to stay near the top five. We got a good promo from Ruby and Britt, much in the way Miro and Eddie Kingston had a promo to kinda cap off their feud. Ruby could feud with quite a few midcard women and stay strong in her own right.

MJF had another powerful promo, because for one, he definitely has a point about the AEW Four Pillars. Jungle Boy, Sammy Guevara, Darby Allin and MJF are definitely top choices in their generation and just about the entire roster or any roster. And MJF mentioning Darby, I had a feeling they would be up next for each other. But DAMN, they’re really letting MJF go after some personal territory. Moxley, Kingston & Darby had a really fun match with Greene & Bear Country but we’re definitely going to get some killer stuff out of MJF and Darby, maybe even Sting and Wardlow on the side. The feud with the Pinnacle could even bring Moxley and Kingston along so that they go after FTR in a real great bunch of scraps.

And of course, that TNT Championship match was awesome stuff. I figured Fuego would get involved somehow but I am genuinely surprised Sammy won tonight. I didn’t think Miro was going to lose until he’d cleared out a few more names, but what a night to make history when it comes to the title Brodie Lee helped pump up with his feud against Cody Rhodes. Of course there is “corporate synergy” forcing us to watch the Rhodes to the Top premiere, with Sammy Guevara’s celebratory promo happening during a commercial break for Cody’s reality show. Either way, this is definitely quite the great shocker, and I would love to see where they go for this towards Full Gear.

My Score: 9.3/10

Whether or not Cole & Fish are best friends, they’re the better team here tonight! Will they give everyone a reason to fear them?

 

Backstage interview with Tony Nese.

Tony Schiavone says the Premier Athlete has “mysteriously” been in the stands watching, but Nese stops him right there. There is no mystery to what he’s doing. He’s scouting the competition, because that’s what top athletes do. “We all know that there’s an open challenge for the TNT Championship, so I thought, what perfect way to make my debut on TNT than becoming the TNT Champion?” Based off what Nese has seen, if Ethan Page, Bobby Fish or Jay Lethal would’ve done their homework, Sammy Guevara wouldn’t be champion right now. Nese is 100% unimpressed, but here comes Sammy!

Sammy’s the one unimpressed with Nese! Another new guy talking a lot of mess. Nese wants Sammy to relax. Is Sammy unable to take criticism? Oh he can take criticism, just not from a guy who hasn’t done s*it since he got here. Nese says there’s an open challenge, so he’s challenging Sammy next week. Challenge accepted, see you next week. Yeah you will. But then Nese SUCKER PUNCHES Sammy! Nese says the only reason Sammy has the title is because guys like Nese weren’t available yet. Nese leaves for now, but will he leave next Rampage the new TNT Champion?

 

FTR speaks.

Cash Wheeler starts by saying, “On Thanksgiving Eve in Chicago, we proved once again that we are the living lucha legends, the AAA World Tag Team Champions, and without a doubt the best tag team on the planet.” There’s a reason FTR is 2-0 against the Lucha Bros and the only win the Lucha Bros got was on the illegal man. There is no team on Earth, in this ring or in this business as good as FTR. Dax Harwood says they have a “history” with 2 outta 3 falls matches, so he is begging them that if they wanna prove it was no fluke, go 2 outta 3 falls with FTR. Right now, until they find someone better, write ’em a letter, #TopGuysOut!

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Black Friday Deal: Britt Baker w/ Jamie Hayter & Rebel VS Riho!

The Doctor better take the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion seriously, because if Riho wins here, she’ll get a title match in the near future! Will Riho cash in on this great deal? Or will Britt deny her this huge holiday gift?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Britt wrenches an arm to hammerlock, then spin Riho to a snapmare. Riho slips out to wrench and have the arm.

BREAKING NEWS!

El Idolo wasn’t done with Cody Rhodes after Dynamite went off the air! A bare concrete Hammerlock DDT may have downed the American Nightmare, but now Cody and Andrade will go 1v1 in an ATLANTA STREET FIGHT! Plus, after the confrontation on Dynamite, Gunn Club’s Colten & Billy Gunn take on Sting & Darby for a grudge match of two undefeated teams!

 

Mark Henry interviews our main eventers!

He starts with Daniel Garcia & 2point0, and how they’ve been attacking whoever, throwing coffee in people’s faces, and are generally out of control. Matt Lee says that’s right, they’re outta control! Eddie Kingston, hopefully you didn’t fill up on turkey, because tonight, you get a taste of Red Death on Black Friday! Great line. Jeff Parker adds that those interruptions weren’t on accident. They know Kingston and he reacted exactly how they thought he would! Garcia adds it’s Black Friday, another sold out arena for another Daniel Garcia main event. He vows to embarrass Kingston, and then Kingston will be the one giving Garcia thanks.

Kingston laughs at these three. He apologizes, but he can’t believe they’re serious. They throw coffee, attack him, say this and that, and Garcia’s acting all big and tough. He’s too light in the ass to mess with Kingston. Kingston will show Garcia what’s what in the ring. And as for his homeboys, they need to do Kingston a favor and shut up. Talk is cheap, partner. Then we’ve had enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Red Death be the one lucky to survive the Mad King?

Eddie Kingston VS Daniel Garcia w/ 2point0!

Jericho CLOBBERS Matt Lee, CLOTHESLINES Jeff Parker, and fans are thunderous for Le Champion! Kingston is still victorious, but will he and Jericho make sure 2point0 and Garcia watch who they pick a fight with from now on?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, and honestly really surprising. I didn’t think Riho was going to win here, but that was a great match and a great win. They’re going to have a great title match, probably at Battle of the Belts, but I am thinking Britt wins there. Cassidy & Yuta had a great showing, but Cole taking out Cassidy so that Yuta would take the loss makes sense. The Not Disputed Era lost to Jurassic Express, but they win here because they gotta stay afloat. I hope Trent Baretta is okay, he’s been gone for what feels like a really longtime.

Nese had a decent promo before Sammy got there, and then things got good. His line about not being available is a great nod to WWE letting him and a tone of their people go, but it would be more legit if one of those other guys said it. Nese will give Sammy a great match but Sammy’s totally winning. Then Kingston VS Garcia was an awesome main event, probably Garcia’s best match in AEW. I figured Kingston would win, but then 2point0 going after him to prompt Jericho to get involved was a nice way to end. Kingston and Jericho teaming up would be pretty cool to see.

My Score: 8.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY

CM Punk heads to the ring!

Chicago goes nuts as AEW opens with their hometown hero! But then MJF shows up to kill the mood. MJF of course has a mic as he goes to the ring. Fans call him an A-Hole as he gets in the ring with Punk and just smirks at him. Fans then chant for Punk, but MJF says, “Doesn’t feel so good getting interrupted, does it, Punky Brewster? Quiet frankly-” Fans now switch to chanting STFU. But frankly, Punk hurt MJF’s feelings. It was almost as bad as that time Punk quit, took his ball and went home like a little bitch. What was great, though, was #ThePipebomb. So good, legendary even. What we’d all call a great promo. The Pipebomb was probably Punk’s best moment.

But here’s the problem, bud. Every MJF moment is the best MJF moment. Cuz unlike Punk, MJF isn’t a one trick pony. Don’t get it twisted, MJF respects Punk and what he’s done, and even that he’s straightedge, Not that MJF could ever imagine a straightedge guy could look so much like a meth addict. And it must be so hard, considering if he had his face, MJF would have to down eight shots of whiskey just to look at himself. But MJF really respects how Punk handled the situation between them. Punk can pretend there wasn’t one, but there is. Punk could be asked about dream matches, would name every other wrestler except for MJF.

Punk can pretend he isn’t interested, but in reality, it’s cuz he doesn’t want none. Punk’s whole career on the stick has been big fish in a small pond, but next to MJF, Punk’s just a minnow. Punk doesn’t want to go toe to toe on the stick? Well too bad. MJF’s gonna finish Punk faster than Punk’s UFC career. MJF smiles his smug smile again while fans boo. MJF wants Punk want to check his watch. Because if Punk wants to retort, it won’t say clobbering time. It’ll say outta time. Punk can drop pipebombs all he wants, because MJF drops nukes! Punk finally does get the mic, fans fire up and MJF patiently waits.

“I’m so disappointed in you. But let’s not start there. Let’s show our guest a little bit of Chicago hospitality.” Punk likes that MJF introduced himself as a proper young man to his elder. And Punk had no idea his first name was Maxwell. He thought MJF was for “My Jealous Fan.” Punk has the time. If MJF is hung up on Punk never mentioning him during press, that was by design. The last thing Punk wanted was to feed MJF’s rotten little ego. Punk is in MJF’s head. He might even be a poster on MJF’s wall. Doesn’t change Punk’s disappointment. He’s heard about the great MJF, and then he did what no one else has been able to do: he shut up the great MJF without saying a word.

And MJF has had seven days to think of good zingers, and he came out with the lowest hanging fruit. MJF thinks he’s revolutionary when in reality, he’s just a less famous MIZ! OUCH! Okay, settle down, settle down. MJF tells “Punky” that was solid. Creative stuff. Almost what MJF wanted. In fact, “almost what I wanted,” perfectly encapsulates Punk’s AEW run so far. Maybe it’s true. “Nostalgia is a drug that cause us to misconstrue our memories, and you, my friend, are no more than nostalgia.” And guess what? Punk is right! MJF was a fan! How couldn’t he have been? In this ring, on the mic, no one could touch Punk! Punk was the best! Or so MJF thought.

Ever since Punk’s almighty return, he’s struggled to beat the easiest competition or say anything of intrigue. MJF gets a little closer and says Punk’s breath smells like sh*t. Maybe cuz he’s been kissing so much ass! He’s been kissing ass all over! MJF will do a quick impression. “It sure is great to be back here in [insert name of town]. I love being a part of [insert name of company]. Gee whiz, I sure am looking forward to my match with [insert name of opponent]. Robotic Pucker Up Punk. You’ve gone soft, man. Your hair’s going gray, and looking at your eyes, if anybody needs to GO to Sleep, it’s you, bud.”

MJF just realized! This isn’t CM Punk. This is PG Punk! What happened to the guy MJF grew up on? The renegade! The ass-kicker! The outsider! This is more like a guy preaching Hustle, Loyalty and Respect. Whoa…! Except here’s the problem, PG. We can see you! MJF can see through him! Punk claimed he came back for the younger talent, but he also claimed he’d only come back for “a boat load of money.” Punk claimed he couldn’t fix pro-wrestling from his couch, yet he stayed put on it for seven long years. Excuse after excuse not to come back. Por que? Why? Cuz he was making comic books no one read or movies no one saw?

Or is it because Punk was terrified? Punk was scared he couldn’t hang anymore, or that he couldn’t in the first place. MJF shouts down the booing fans and says he’s here to tell Punk that he should be scared. In the other company, you were a cult hero because  you were held down, should’ve been showcased as the number one. Yeah, and now here he is, has all the opportunity to prove those people right, but can he? Do the fans think Punk can do it? Chicago sure does. MJF is glad they think that now, but what about in a month? Two months? A year? Punk envies MJF. And Punk doesn’t like MJF because he represents everything in the business Punk hates.

MJF was born for this. He’s a clean cut professional, a promotor’s wet dream, but Punk was a tattooed misfit from the dumpiest part of the Midwest known as CHICAGO. Punk had to work his tail off, and MJF commends him for that. But MJF knows what eats Punk up inside. It’s the fact that after all the hard world, the blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice, deep down Punk and the fans know that Punk’s been nothing more than second best. Whether it was You Can’t See Me, or the King of Kings, Punk was never up to snuff. And now that Punk is in MJF’s ring and MJF’s company, it won’t be any different! Punk may say he’s Best in the World, but MJF is better than you, and you know it!

MJF and Punk stare down, and Punk says there’s some truth to that. A little. Scared? Coming back after seven years, yeah. Punk won’t lie. He didn’t know if the fans would remember or care about him. He didn’t know if he still had it. But trust Punk, he’s not scared anymore. And certainly not of MJF. The timing might not match up but Punk was selling out Madison Square Garden while MJF was marking out for Rosie O’Donnell. And the last time MJF did a song and dance, he made the New York Times! WOW~! Wanna sing him a song now, Maxwell? Don’t worry, MJF is in the ring with a professional and he’ll make the papers again. But this time it’ll be the obituaries!

Punk says MJF just enrolled himself into a school his parents can’t pay for. MJF talked too much, just like Punk back in the day! But Punk backed it up. MJF can’t back up shit without his backup! FTR, Shawn Spears, Wardlow, that is how MJF gets things done. Punk saw AEW, said that’s where he wants to be and test himself, and he went for the heart and soul of it, and that was Darby Allin! Now that chews MJF up, doesn’t it? And Punk beat Darby Allin, and didn’t need a pinkie ring to do it! MJF is too busy talking about how he’s the best, but he doesn’t realize he’s been replaced by BRITT BAKER! Fans chant “DMD! DMD!” for the Doctor.

Punk says MJF thinks he’s made great points, he still talks too much and they’ve wasted the people’s time. Chicago is the Second City, not because there’s somewhere better. Punk will be #2 with a bullet, cuz just like Chicago, when it burned down, they just built it back up on top of the smoldering embers! And who’s the man around here? MJF? No. The only way MJF will be number one is for MJF to wait until Tony Khan has a daughter that MJF can marry! Oh…! Punk says last time in Chicago, yeah Punk is happy to be here. He gave them free ice cream bars! But the only thing Punk can think is better is punching MJF in his needle dick right now!

Fans are thunderous as MJF throws off the scarf and jacket! But then he bails out. Punk waves bye, but will MJF man up and give Punk the fight everyone wants to see?

CM Punk VS QT Marshall w/ The Factory!

AEW returns and QT is in the ring. He wants Punk to focus on him, and they tie up. Punk headlocks, QT powers out but Punk runs him over. Punk flexes and fans cheer while QT gets up in a huff. QT paces, circles with Punk, they tie up and Punk headlocks. QT powers out again, Aaron Solo swipes at Punk! Punk glares at Solo but QT CLUBS him from behind. QT brings Punk around, scoops but Punk slips out to scoop and SLAM QT! QT gets up, into another scoop SLAM! And then another! Chicago fires up as Punk drags QT up again for another scoop SLAM! QT goes to a corner, Punk brings him up to snapmare and cover. ONE, but Punk has the chinlock.

QT fights up, puts Punk in the corner but the ref counts the ropebreak. QT lets off but Nick Comoroto grabs at him! But the ref sees that and EJECTS the Factory! Chicago sings, “Hey hey hey! Good bye~!” QT sees his guys up the ramp, but then Punk ducks his clothesline to scoop and SLAM! Is that seven or six? QT knees low, ROCKS Punk with a haymaker then bumps him off buckles. QT throws more hands, soaks up the heat, whips Punk to ropes but Punk reverses to CLOBBER QT! Punk puts QT in a corner, climbs up and rains down hands! Punk punches from all sides to get 10, then he whips corner to corner! QT tumbles up and flops down!

Punk drags QT back up, QT RAMS him into the corner! QT ROCKS Punk with a haymaker, then drags him up to snapmare and stomp Punk’s face! QT swaggers around while fans boo, and QT covers, TWO! QT soaks up more heat, then he clamps hands onto Punk for a neck wrench. Punk endures, fights up as fans rally, and Punk throws elbows. Punk throws hands, QT kicks back from a corner. QT throws hands, whips Punk corner to corner but Punk reverses. QT comes back into a back drop! Punk then runs and clotheslines QT out of the ring! Punk aims from the apron, and leaps to CLOBBER QT with the flying clothesline! Fans fire up while AEW goes picture in picture!

Punk catches his breath while feeding off the fans’ energy. Punk bumps QT off the apron, puts him in the ring, then brings QT up, only for QT to hotshot him down! QT drags Punk into the ring, stomps him down, then lets off as the ref counts. QT drags Punk up to suplex and hold Punk up for a few seconds before the SLAM! QT then takes his time to drop the leg, brother! Cover, TWO! QT argues the count but the ref says it was fair. QT clamps on a chinlock and grinds Punk down. Punk endures, fights back up, stomps a foot then throws body shots. Punk throws hands, runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Punk grits his teeth while he’s down on the mat.

QT pushes Punk, covers, TWO! QT looms over Punk, drags him up and throws clubbing crossface forearms. QT clamps on with another neck wrench but Punk still endures. AEW returns to single picture and fans rally. Punk fights up, throws elbows to get free again, and runs, but into pop-up HAYMAKER! And then QT gets Punk up, SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! QT is furious but fans still rally for Punk. QT rains down fists, soaks up the heat, pretends he can’t hear the fans, then tells them to shove it! QT pushes Punk around, “You ain’t nothing!” Punk gets up to ROUNDHOUSE! QT falls and fans fire up!

QT returns but Punk counter punches! Punk whips and CLOBBERS QT, then spins him for a NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up more as QT flounders. Punk runs in to SHINING WIZARD! And then he reels QT in for a short arm LARIAT! Punk goes to the corner, and fans fire up as he climbs! Punk aims, MACHO ELBOW! Fans are thunderous and Punk says night night! QT staggers up into the fireman’s carry! GO TO SLEEP! Cover, Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

Still undefeated in AEW! When and where will Punk get to show MJF that he’s still that same renegade ass kicker from back in the day?

 

Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Jurassic Express.

They have a lot of momentum given Full Gear and Rampage. Jungle Boy points out he beat Bobby Fish twice. They do have a lot of momentum and it feels damn good. Funny thing is, when you have the kind of momentum they have, you can’t help but feel damn near invincible! When you feel this way, good things happen. For example, Christian find out his guys here are the #1 contenders in the AEW Tag Division! Now, they’ve been here before, but the difference is the momentum, the confidence, and Christian Cage. He’ll make sure they get those tag titles! Luchasaurus roars, will Jurassic Express finally strike gold?

 

Eddie Kingston is in catering.

He doesn’t know what the cameraman is doing here, but he’s having his food. But yo, Moxley, he misses you! But then Daniel Garcia & 2point0 walk in. They apologize for things last week. They read the article in The Player’s Tribune. It was fantastic, touching, got to them and the entire world. But as his friend, they see Kingston is happy and full. That is great. But that means he’s not hungry anymore. He’s hungry for cake. But Matt Lee says this is the kiss of death for a fighter. Jeff Parker says they’ve all known each other a long time, so they’re here to help. Kingston couldn’t help his friend so- What did he say? They splash Kingston with his coffee!

But before this turns into a brawl, security and staff step in! Kingston throws the table over, but will he get his pound of flesh from 2point0 and “their son” soon enough?

 

Gunn Club VS Bear Country!

Billy Gunn and his son, Colten, step up to keep the #Gunndefeated streak alive, but they’re running into Boulder & Bronson! Will Bear Country maul the Gunns-

Wait, Gunn Club attacks Bear Country first! They stomp them in corners, whip them but Bear Country reverses to send the Gunns into each other! Bronson TOSSES Colten, Boulder trophy lifts Billy! The bell rings to put this on record as Boulder DROPS Billy! Billy bails out, Austin coaches him and his brother up. Bronson runs at Colten but is sent into buckles!

Winners: Gunn Club, by pinfall

The Bear Country boys were outgunned, but here comes STING and DARBY ALLIN! Wait, only the Icon is on the ramp? Austin rushes up the ramp but Darby CLOBBERS him outta nowhere! Now Darby and Sting rush the ring, only for Billy and Colten to bail out. The Gunn Club regroups on their way out, but will they have to face up to the Relentless One soon enough?

 

AEW presents Battle of the Belts!

January 8th, live on TNT, Dynamite becomes Battle of the Belts! All the champions will have to defend their titles, but will it be a gold rush for their challengers?

 

Adam Cole & Bobby Fish talk backstage.

Brandon, just keep the damn thing rolling, Cole’s already pissed. These past few weeks have sucked! They lost at Full Gear, then on Rampage, and now there’s this Friendsgiving thing? What the hell is going on? Fish says the Bucks aren’t cleared. Cole knows, because he talks to them every single day. They’re not just teammates, they’re best friends! Almost family! But THE Best Friends walk in. Cole & Fish walked right past them, they know Chuck Taylor, Orange Cassidy & Wheeler Yuta are Best Friends. They don’t walk around doing the weird hand thing. Cole says Best Friends is just a name for them. Where’s even Trent?

And Cassidy is probably a horrible friend and Yuta doesn’t even have friends! So if they think they can look Fish & Cole in the face and say they’re better friends, then you’re kidding yourself. What’s Yuta’s middle name? Cassidy steps up. Fine. Cole & Fish are tired of being disrespected! They leave, but will they prove they’re better friends than Best Friends?

 

Tony Schiavone presides over a meeting backstage.

After the ultimatum on the offer, Team Taz finally gets Lio Rush & Dante Martin to sit down and look at the contract. Taz says Dante is either in or out. No more games, dude. A golden opportunity for Dante here, but Taz doesn’t even know why Lio is here. Lio asks who Taz is talking to, because he sure isn’t talking to Lio like that. Anything that has to do with Dante involves Lio. Well don’t come at Taz like that, this is simply business. So Dante has the pen, sign. Lio says this is business they want no part of. But then Dante picks up the pen and signs?! Dante is leaving Lio to join Team Taz! He even has some of Hook’s chips! A shocking development, but why did Dante make the change?

 

TBS Championship Tournament Quarterfinals: Thunder Rosa VS Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel!

Because of her first round bye, La Mera Mera’s been waiting for this moment. But the AEW Women’s World Champion is very confident in her sidekick moving on to become the other champion in this division. Will Rosa disappoint them both here tonight?

The two tie up even before the bell and they go around the ring! Rosa puts Hayter on ropes. Hayter pushes back and puts Rosa in a corner.

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

La Mera Mera overcomes the stacked deck, and perhaps puts a damper on Friendsgiving! Hayter storms off, is she still going to be Britt’s buddy after this? As for Rosa, will she

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

What is next for Le Champion? Well, before getting to that, he just wants to say that despite all the grief he’s given Alex Marvez, this is Thanksgiving Eve, so- 2point0 and Daniel Garcia barge in, boasting about what they did to Eddie Kingston. Then they see Jericho, and bond as Canadians. Well maybe instead of bragging about throwing coffee in his face like jackasses, get some chains and nails to protect you from when Kingston breaks into their homes and beats their stuffed turkey asses. Jericho also can’t stop staring at Matt Lee’s square head. Look how square he is! He’s like an ugly SpongeBob SquarePants. Right, Chicago? “Square Head! Square Head!”

And Jericho will say this one time. If they ever, ever interrupt him again, he won’t throw coffee in their faces. He’ll knock their teeth down their throats. Ya dig? No trouble. But watch your mouth. 2point0 leave “the funny guy” behind, and Jericho says Happy Thanksgiving.

 

Britt Baker sits down for Friendsgiving.

She, Tony Schiavone and Rebel sit at the table, and Britt says this didn’t go as planned. But she will say that she is thankful that she could give them the best Thanksgiving dinner ever. Fat free pumpkin pie for Schiavone, and Rebel doesn’t need the carbs. But this all started off horribly because Rosa advanced. Rosa winning that TBS title will doom it for life. But one thing that is still very, very right is Britt is still AEW Women’s World Champion. Schiavone is thankful for his friends, but he has some bad news. Here’s some tape. See, earlier this year, All Out in Chicago, Riho was never actually eliminated in the battle royal.

So Tony Khan has decided, for Rampage Black Friday, it will be a “Black Friday Deal” match. Britt VS Riho, and if Riho wins on Friday, she gets a world title shot. No no no! Britt doesn’t like that. There are only Black Friday deals and matches. If Riho wants a deal, go to the mall. That’s all there is to it. Well it’s been booked, sorry… Well now Schiavone has ruined another holiday. This cuts him out of the Christmas party! And who put ice in the red wine? Was that Schiavone, too? And no, no DMD! Schiavone ruined it all. But will Britt find herself on the bad end of a golden opportunity against the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Bryan Danielson VS Colt Cabana!

The American Dragon vows that until he gets his match with AEW World Champion, Hangman Page, he’ll take down the members of the Dark Order! And he decided to go after the hometown boy here in Chicago! Will BOOM BOOM have to go bye-bye after Bryan is done with him?

The bell rings, Cabana shows off the dancing pecs, and fans are fired up already. Bryan and Cabana tie up, Bryan wrenches to a wristlock but Cabana rolls, breaks free and drop toeholds to a facelock. Bryan wrenches out, back drops and has the armbar! Cabana gets the ropebreak, Bryan lets off at 4 but gets a cheap shot in as he does. Cabana keeps his cool as he and Bryan reset. They tie up, Bryan headlocks but Cabana wrenches and hammerlocks. Bryan reverses that onto Cabana, then brings him down to have the arms. Cabana fights up, turns the motorcycle stretch on Bryan, then brings him into a modified surfboard!

Bryan slips off to KICK away on Cabana’s leg! Cabana goes to a corner, Bryan CHOPS him! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Cabana paces, Bryan wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Bryan brings Cabana down to KICK! Cabana snarls, Bryan KICKS him in the back! And KICKS him again! Cabana eggs Bryan on then CHOPS back! Bryan EuroUppers and puts Cabana in a corner. Bryan brings Cabana corner to corner to bump him off buckles then KICK him again! Bryan goes corner to corner, but Cabana dodges the dropkick! Bryan crashes and fans fire up! Cabana CHOPS, Bryan swings but Cabana dodges to JAB, JAB, JAB! Flip, flop, fly, BIONIC ELBOW!

Bryan is in a corner, but he dodges the Flying Apple to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bryan runs in to dropkick Cabana! Bryan turns Cabana around to KICK! And CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP! Bryan puts Cabana up top, climbs up behind him, fish hooks the face, but lets off as the ref counts. Bryan stands up on the very top, brings Cabana up, but Cabana punches! Cabana elbows Bryan down, then adjusts to MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up and Cabana gets Bryan up o fire off BIONIC ELBOWS as he has wrist control! But Bryan gets around, STO to DANIELSON STOMPS! Then omoplata, flex and LEBELLE LOCK! Cabana barely manages to tap, he’s that out of it! Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Bryan holds on longer, but then lets off when he’s satisfied. He even points out a bit of tooth that he kicked out of Cabana’s head! Bryan picks it up and holds it up like a trophy! AEW is picture in picture as Bryan soaks up the heat and Cabana realizes what happened to his own tooth. Schiavone is headed to the ring to interview Bryan, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and…

Schiavone is in the ring with Bryan, the #1 contender for the AEW World Championship, and undefeated since arriving here. Bryan isn’t making many friends. That’s funny, because when he debuted in Chicago, he got a much different reaction than this. And Bryan wonders, “Is it me? Or is it you?” Bryan has one word to describe that: fickle. Bryan is not fickle. Bryan came out here, said that he was going to kick Cabana’s head in, and not only did he do that, he kicked Cabana’s teeth out! Next week, in Atlanta, there are a couple Dark Orders from there! Bryan invites either one of them to fight him next week so he can kick their heads in!

All of this is leading to the ultimate head kicking, and that is Hangman Adam Page. But speaking of, here comes Hangman! The AEW World Champion goes right to the ring, title on his shoulder and mic in hand. Hangman gets in the ring and stares Bryan down. “I get it, you made your point. You said you’d kick Cabana’s head in, and you did. But that’s the last. Because we’re in Chicago, and this city, this building, well they hold a very special place in my heart.” Hangman can’t think of a better place or time to defend this title than right here and right now. But Bryan says of course Hangman would say that after he’s already had a match!

To Bryan, this isn’t cowboy s*it, it’s COWARD s*it. Well then tell you what. If Bryan won’t do the match right now, Hangman ain’t leaving without a fight. And Hangman will make it fair by giving Bryan the first shot. Hangman puts his hands back and fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan wont’ be insulted like that. Bryan drops the mic then SLAPS Hangman! Then they start throwing hands! Fans fire up, Hangman whips but Bryan reveres! Hangman goes up and out to BOOT, then slingshot, but Bryan runs from the Buckshot! This showdown is coming, what happens when these two finally throw down?

 

AEW takes one more look at Statlander VS Soho.

When Ruby arrived in AEW, there was a long list of women she wanted to face. Statlander was at the top. Kris has been rebuilt, more powerful and more galactic. Kris vows to defeat Ruby and be the first ever TBS Champion as #OUrLeader. Ruby wants to prove to AEW, to the others and to herself that she’s the best. So she has to take on the best. A true dream match, but only one can advance! We’ll see who that is, next Wednesday on Dynamite!

Some fans chant, “Throw it back!” Cody gets Dax up but Dax pulls hair! Cody drags Dax away, tag to Pac. Pac takes the hand-off, wrenches to a wristlock, the fan DOES throw Cody’s belt back! Dax pulls Pac’s hair, then throws hands. Andrade snatches up Cody’s belt to throw it under the ring!

A nasty way to win an absolute war! Will this alliance be something all four men are thankful for this year?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome AEW right here! Great set up for upcoming things, too. Great promos from Cole & Fish with Best Friends, as well as Kingston, 2point0 and Daniel Garcia, to set up these matches for Rampage, and Britt VS Riho is going to be a great match for the “Black Friday Deal.” I kinda hope Riho wins that, because then she can challenge Britt at “Battle of the Belts,” aka AEW’s Clash of Champions. Britt VS Riho for the title is going to be huge, too, and then it still saves someone like Thunder Rosa for AEW Revolution. I am a little surprised Rosa won tonight, when Britt interfered just as expected. But Rosa might not win against Cargill, so maybe we’re still on track for Britt VS Rosa.

Punk had quite the opening, being part of both an opening promo and opening match, but it all worked great in story. Punk and MJF took some powerful shots at each other, and at the WWE at the same time, and without considering who is Heel and who is Face, I think MJF not only kept even with Punk, he might’ve squeaked that one out. Punk VS QT was a good match, and of course Punk wins. Punk VS MJF can’t be delayed all the way until Revolution, but it almost feels too big for Winter is Coming, Battle of the Belts or the TBS switchover. It’d have to be a half an hour main event for one of those TV specials to feel appropriate.

Christian Cage & Jurassic Express have a good promo to make it known they’re coming for the tag titles, so maybe they’re going to be the ones at Battle of the Belts challenging Lucha Brothers. Sammy Guevara wasn’t on the episode, only Jericho was here to have his moment with 2point0 and Daniel Garcia, I’m sure we’ll get things set up for that TNT Championship next week since Tony Khan’s going to announce more of that card this Friday. Gunn Club taking on Bear Country was to keep that undefeated streak going while also setting things up for them and Darby-Sting. Maybe they face off for Winter is Coming as the one year anniversary of Sting in AEW.

I am really surprised Dante Martin signed the Team Taz contract and left Lio Rush behind. There wasn’t a lot of explanation as to why, that will surely be coming next week, but I kinda hope this means Team Taz can get into the tag division with Dante and Hobbs being a duo. Also, I wonder if something happens where Battle of the Belts gives us an FTW Championship match where Ricky Starks gets to shine while also helping someone else look good. Bryan VS Cabana was awesome stuff, Bryan is really embracing being Heel here. Hangman showing up after Bryan has his match does kinda feed into Bryan’s point from last week, though, but their brawl was really good.

The 8 Man Tag main event was awesome stuff, even with the Cody Rhodes heat kinda distracting from some of it. Cody was surely playing it up, though. He knows many fans are turning on him, he probably didn’t need to throw the belt, but it was a pretty great moment for that belt to be thrown back at him. I do appreciate that, after Pac takes the accidental superkick, he didn’t turn on Cody because he knows that was an accident. The Heels winning here makes sense, it can escalate this feud to something bigger for Winter is Coming before Penta & Fenix defend the tag titles at Battle of the Belts. I still wonder if Andrade will take over The Pinnacle since he’s been spending more time with FTR than MJF has been.

My Score: 9.2/10
