AEW looks closely at the dream match, Omega VS Danielson!
Kenny Omega starts by telling Bryan Danielson, “You were always the underdog over there, weren’t you? And now you’ve come here, you’re not even ranked, and you’re the underdog again.” But Bryan says there are misconceptions about him out there. Bryan wanted his first match to be against the toughest guy in AEW, and everyone says that’s Omega. But what annoys Omega is the “air of confidence” and “sense of entitlement” coming off Bryan. “And I’ve seen it all before. Every guy that walks through those doors, they target me. Why is that? It’s because they recognize that I’m the top talent.”
Bryan wants to show his true self again, which will be exciting for the fans and scary for the wrestlers. But Omega says, “The Underdog, Bryan Danielson, in AEW. Unfortunately for you, Bryan, this underdog is not going to have his Cinderella story.” It won’t be for the AEW world title, but this will be for the title of very best in the business today! Will Omega prove the PWI 500 is right in naming him THE top wrestler of 2021? Or will he be slayed by the American Dragon?
Anna Jay w/ Tay Conti VS The Bunny w/ Penelope Ford & Matt Hardy!
We just saw the HFO fail to get any gold, but perhaps Allie can slay the Queenslayer! Will there at least be one thing Hardy can celebrate tonight? Or will the Dark Order’s Number 99 whoop this wascally wabbit?
But they don’t even wait to be in the ring, Bunny goes after Jay at the ramp! They throw hands and fans fire up as Jay gets the edge! Jay knees low then snap suplexes Bunny on the ramp! Tay gives her best friend a hug before Jay puts Bunny in the ring. The two are finally ready, the bell rings and Jay storms up on Bunny. Bunny wants Jay to take it easy but Jay fires off forearms! Jay reels Bunny in for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Jay dares Bunny to get up, runs in and elbows her in the corner! Jay whips corner to corner again and runs in to throw another elbow! Jay keeps moving and she runs Bunny right over with a shoulder!
Jay drags Bunny up, whips her to ropes, but Bunny holds ropes to bail out. Hardy and Ford coach Bunny up but Jay goes out to throw forearms again! The brawl returns, Bunny gets the edge then SUPERKICKS! Jay staggers up and gets to the post, but Bunny YANKS her into it! Jay clutches her arm, Bunny hammerlocks and RAMS Jay into railing! Bunny grins sadistically into the camera before she stomps Jay down. Bunny drags Jay around, isolates the arm and CLUBS it! The ref reprimands, fans rally behind Jay and Conti warns Bunny. Bunny gets Jay up to whip her hard into the railing again! Bunny goes into the ring as AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and both women are down as fans rally up. Jay gets Bunny’s arm to wrench through, but Bunny wrenches the bad arm to YANK it! And YANK it again! Bunny reels Jay into a fireman’s carry but Jay slips off to mule kick a leg out! Jay runs to BASEMENT BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Bunny survives, Conti coaches Jay but Ford talks trash to her. Bunny sits up, Jay catches her breath and reels Bunny in, for the QUEEN- No, Bunny slips out to dragon sleeper! Jay wrenches out, DANGEROUS JAY HOOK KICK! Ford gets on the apron and shouts at Jay, but Conti trips her down! Conti RAMS Ford into railing but Bunny waistlocks! Jay switches, rolls up, JAY WINS!
Winner: Anna Jay, by pinfall
The HFO busts on the night, but Bunny is furious! Bunny stomps Jay down but Conti gets in to fire off! Ford gets in to go after Conti! Ford and Bunny mug Conti, then Ford brings out BRASS KNUCKLES! KNUCKLE DUSTER PUNCH!! Conti goes down, Jay gets up, Ford DECKS Jay with the knuckles, too!! The Superbad Girl might fit right in with the HFO after seeing that. Hardy seems to be upset with Jack Evans, though. Will there be a meeting to get the group back on track?
AEW shares an interview from Dynamite.
After Team Taz’s Powerhouse put CM Punk down, Hobbs talked backstage about it. “Best in the World, huh? Best in the World, CM Punk’s ass was just laid out by who? Powerhouse Hobbs! Punk, I told you, this is something you really don’t wanna mess with.” Hobbs isn’t Darby Allin, so Punk needs to think about these past seven years and why he stayed gone. Taz adds that Punk should’ve stayed home. Maybe it’ll be another seven years. Hobbs promises Punk ain’t never faced someone like him, but he’ll see him next week.
Tony Schiavone is in the ring with Hardy and Evans.
Schiavone knows Hardy is mad, his team went 0-2 tonight. Yes, Hardy is pissed off, but he’ll have the last laugh. Anna Jay will pay next week at the hands of Penelope Ford. The Lucha Brothers, Proud ‘n’ Powerful, they’ll also pay in an 8 Man Tag! But Hardy is not in a good mood right now, and someone pissing him off is Orange Cassidy’s lookalike in the crowd! There is a guy essentially cosplaying Orange Cassidy but he doesn’t exactly look like the Orange Cassidy. Hardy is upset that this guy’s been staring at him all night, and he storms over. Hardy gets in the guy’s face but the guy gives a thumbs up. Hardy says no one mocks him without paying!
Hardy drags the “lookalike” over the railing and into the ring! He and Evans stomp away on the cosplayer, then throw hands! Hardy has scissors, he hits a TWIST OF FATE, and then Evans sits the cosplayer up. Hardy uses the scissors to cut this guy’s ponytail off! Hardy has Evans use the CLIPPERS to buzz the guy’s hair! Evans works on the left side, but here comes THE REAL Cassidy! Evans shaves as much as he can off the fan before Cassidy gets in the ring! Hardy and Evans run away and Hardy says he’ll DELETE Cassidy’s cool factor! Will Cassidy be the one cutting down Hardy soon enough?
Britt Baker is here!
The AEW Women’s World Champion joins Schiavone in the ring and even hugs him. And without further ado, he introduces Britt’s next challenger, Ruby Soho! Champion and challenger stand off in the ring and Britt welcomes Ruby to TV time. But before getting to that, let’s get to why she’s here. It isn’t for Britt, it definitely isn’t for the title, and it isn’t even for all the fans. Britt says Ruby is here just for Ruby, “because you’re still trying to figure out who the hell you are. How many times have you changed your name in the last year?” She also gets new tattoos, changes her hair to every color of the rainbow, all because Ruby is desperately trying to fit in anywhere. But here, everyone knows who Britt is: she’s the AEW Women’s World Champion, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.
Ruby says, “Of course everyone knows who you are, Britt. You remind them every week. You’re constantly having to shove it down their throats.” DMD, yeah yeah yeah. Now, Ruby knows Britt isn’t accustomed to being told she’s wrong, but she is. Ruby knows exactly who the hell Ruby is. Up until now, Ruby just hadn’t had the freedom to prove it. Fans chant and duel, “RUBY SOHO!” “D M D!” But let’s just flip the script here and put this on Britt. Let’s talk about DMD. On the surface, Britt looks like “every other broad that I’ve stepped across the ring from. Entitled, self-centered, and banging some dude in the back.” DAAAAYUM! Jersey goes WILD after that one!
Ruby ain’t done, either. “It turns out that you’re just that. I’m just trying to figure out if there’s anything more.” And Britt says she’s just trying to figure out why Ruby is lying to everyone, including herself. “Because you have the audacity to call yourself, ‘The Runaway.'” But Ruby didn’t run away from anything. She got fired. OOOOH! Jersey is loving the back and forth! Ruby admits to that. But turns out, it was the best damn thing to ever happen to her! It brought Ruby right here to AEW and to this moment where she’s in the ring, looking Britt in the eyes. And Britt needs to really look at Ruby. No, really look. Ruby wants Britt to see the woman she’s messing with.
Though, Ruby’s a bit surprised Britt can see anything, since her head’s so far up Tony Khan’s ass. WHOA. “The fact of the matter is, you can call yourself all your nicknames, you can remind these people who you are. But after Dynamite next week, when I beat your ass in New York City and take your title, the one thing you won’t be able to call yourself is AEW Women’s World Champion.” Britt holds up her belt but has no words o come back with. She even tries a belt shot! But Ruby ducks it, trips Britt up, and rains down furious fists! Britt scrambles away but Ruby snatches the belt! Will Ruby hold that title up as champion after the Grand Slam?
Mark Henry interviews Miro and Fuego Del Sol.
The young luchador is willing to risk his brand new car just for the TNT title? Fuego says he loves his car, but he’d risk it all for one more opportunity! Fuego almost defeated Miro the last time, he was a split second away after dropping him on his head, and he almost shocked the world. God’s Favorite Champion should know the David and Goliath story. Fuego says tonight, he will slay his giant with a Tornado DDT! Henry asks Miro that as the most dominant TNT Champion, is his strategy changing for the rematch? Miro says, “Nothing has changed. But Fuego, your offering means nothing to me, because you are nothing to me.”
The only reason he’s taking this victory is because Miro loves celebrating with his God on high, and his wife down low. So tonight, Miro redeems Fuego once and for all. Then all the talking is done, it is time for the main event! Will Fuego be driving off in his brand new Hyundai with the gold? Or will he have to bum a ride with a friend after losing to Miro a second time?
AEW TNT Championship, Title VS Car: Miro VS Fuego Del Sol!
We already know what’s at stake, but if Alabama’s Favorite Luchador almost pulled off a miracle once, can he pull off the miracle here in Jersey?
The introductions are made, the title is raised, and we see if David still slays Goliath in the 21st Century!
Fans are fired up as Fuego stares down Miro. The two circle, approach, and Fuego drop steps to the waistlock. Miro goes around, pries right free, but Fuego kicks a leg! Miro is annoyed but he keeps cool as he and Fuego circle. Miro corners Fuego but Fuego slips away to kick Miro in the leg again. Fuego stays on his toes, avoids being cornered again and CHOPS Miro. Miro doesn’t flinch but Fuego gets space. They circle, Fuego throws more kicks but Miro blocks! Miro swings, Fuego dodges and holds ropes to avoid the roundhouse! Fuego baits Miro in and then dumps him out of the ring! Fans fire up as Fuego PLANCHAS, but Miro catches him!
Miro carries Fuego around the way, aims for a post, but Fuego avoids being a lawn dart and he POSTS Miro instead! Fuego hurries to get Miro up and POSTS him again! Miro staggers, Fuego gets to the apron and runs to FLYING RANA Miro down! Miro staggers up again, goes to a corner of the railing, and Fuego runs in, but is TOSSED into the crowd! The fans help Fuego stay up! Fuego is on the railing and LEAPS, but into Miro’s arms again! Miro carries Fuego for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Fuego writhes and Miro snarls as AEW goes picture in picture.
Miro stalks after Fuego, drags him up by his mask, and puts him in the ring. Miro covers, TWO! Miro eggs the fans on, taunting those chanting for Fuego. Fuego flounders, Miro gut wrenches him up for a TOSS! Miro gets Fuego up to TOSS across the ring!! Miro is toying with Fuego now to make him pay for his defiance. The ref checks on Fuego as he sputters in the corner and Miro soaks up the heat. Miro looks to Heaven before he looks down on Fuego. Miro drags Fuego back up, winds up and DECKS him with a haymaker! Miro drops elbows over and over on Fuego then runs to JUMPING ELBOW! Miro grins as he covers, TWO! Fuego still has fire in his belly and Miro is upset.
Miro stands on Fuego’s head but the ref reprimands. Miro pulls on Fuego’s arm before he stomps Fuego down. Miro paces, drags Fuego up, but Fuego throws hands! Fuego wobbles Miro but Miro scoops, only for Fuego to slip out! Fuego jumps on for a sleeper! Miro gets to the ropes but Fuego shifts and headlocks. Miro powers up but Fuego becomes a sleeper backpack again! Fuego squeezes tight and Miro is fading! The ref checks on Miro but Miro gets a second wind to RAM Fuego into buckles! Miro is free, he runs in but into a BOOT! And then more BOOTS! Fuego goes up and QUEBRADAS! Direct hit but things speed up! Fuego ducks, dodges and leaps, into a BEARHUG!
Miro grins and shakes his head as he squeezes Fuego tight. Fuego endures, AEW returns to single picture and fans rally up. Miro grins but Fuego throws headbutts! Fuego is free, but Miro clinches him in another bearhug! Fuego still throws headbutts and is free again, then he drop toeholds Miro into buckles! Fans fire up as Fuego schoolboys, kips up and BASEMENT ENZIGURIS! Miro is dazed, Fuego fires up! Fuego fires off forearm after forearm, then runs, springboard into a DOUBLE AX HANDLE! Miro scowls and wags his finger. Miro drags Fuego up, mocks the call for the tornado, and then- No, Fuego slips out of the DDT to DOUBLE STOMP!
Fuego hurries to get up and run in, step-up DOUBLE STOMPS to the head! Miro gets up slowly, Fuego winds up to HEEL KICK! And then BASEMENT DDT! Fuego calls his shot and Miro staggers up, Fuego goes up and up and- No! Miro stops the flight for a back suplex! But Fuego lands on his feet! Fuego dodges Miro to get to the corner but Miro ROUNDHOUSES him down! Miro throws furious fists over and over and is no longer toying with Fuego. Miro drags Fuego up, winds up, BEST KICK!! But Miro calls for one more, and so do the fans! Miro gets Fuego up, BEST KICK to the back! Cover, Miro wins!
Winner: Miro, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion; owner of a new car)
The dominance continues as the TNT title stays with Miro, and now he gets Fuego’s keys! Miro goes to throw the key, but he is just faking the fans out. Instead, he puts the keys inside Fuego’s mouth! And then he puts Fuego in GAME OVER!! And it’s DEEP! Fuego taps but he’s already lost so much tonight! Fuego fades out as Miro makes him suffer, but here comes SAMMY GUEVARA! The Spanish God dodges Miro to KNEE him out of the ring! Sammy saves his best friend and fans are fired up! Sammy sees the TNT Championship is on the floor, and he picks it up! Miro is furious but Sammy dares him to try something! Fans cheer, will Sammy prove Miro that he ain’t any god’s favorite?
Another great episode for Rampage, even with title status quos kept. Though, to be fair, I didn’t expect the HFO or Fuego to take the titles from Lucha Brothers or Miro coming into this anyway. Lucha Brothers VS Butcher & Blade was very good, though, with references to their familiarity as allies throughout. Santana & Ortiz making the save was a nice touch, and that 8 Man Tag of Lucha Bros & PNP VS HFO is going to be wild. Jay VS Bunny was pretty good stuff, and naturally Jay wins because it makes good story for HFO to have these struggles. Jay VS Ford is going to be pretty good, too, and I fully expect HFO to sign her (and by extension, Kip Sabian) to the group.
We got a great face to face of Britt and Ruby, and WOO those shots fired on each other. But given Ruby basically won the promo battle and then got to stand tall, Britt’s retaining at Grand Slam. That’s just how the math goes. And of course, the main event was really good with Fuego getting to show great stuff even in losing. Miro technically doesn’t accept the car since he gave the keys back to Fuego in a very painful way. But I am really excited to see Sammy Guevara going after Miro. I somehow overlooked the idea of Sammy challenging for the TNT Championship, perhaps because I expected him to do something else pretty big. I really like the idea that Inner Circle could get the other titles as we enter year three, following in Jericho’s footsteps as a former AEW World Champion.
My Score: 8.4/10

Steel Cage, MJF as Special Guest Referee: Wardlow VS Shawn Spears!
The final hurdle is here! If the War Dog can get through the Chair Man inside this cage, he’ll get Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Double or Nothing! But of course, stacking the deck as always, MJF is going to be the officiator in this match, wearing his own custom referee shirt. He claims he’ll call this right down the middle, but will MJF make sure Spears slays the giant and saves him from certain doom on Sunday?
Once again, Wardlow is in cuffs while being escorted to the ring. Fans chant, “WARD~LOW!” the whole way, and Wardlow steps inside the steel. MJF says he’s got those cuffs, as soon as he does the pat down. Wardlow is clean, but MJF “misplaced” the key. Fans boo, because they know this is just another way to rig this match! Spears attacks Wardlow outta nowhere, and MJF has the bell ring! Spears stomps, CLUBS and then throws body shots and more stomps. MJF whistles and has Spears back down, because he “found” the key. But then MJF stomps away on Wardlow, too! MJF knows Wardlow can’t attack him because that’ll violate the match contract!
Spears CLOBBERS Wardlow, stomps him, and MJF smirks. Wardlow gets up but elbows Spears away! Then BOOTS him! But MJF rakes Wardlow’s eyes! Fans boo but MJF eggs them on. Spears drags Wardlow up in the gap between ropes and steel, and both he and MJF run to RAM Wardlow into steel! MJF and Spears high-ten and then soak up the heat. Fans taunt Spears with “TEN! TEN! TEN!” and Spears brings the kneepad down. But Wardlow back drops Spears away! And BOOTS him! MJF stares Wardlow down because again, he can’t be touched. Wardlow endures the taunting, even as MJF SPITS in his face!
But then Wardlow BREAKS the cuffs on his own!? Wardlow CLOBBERS Spears over and over, THROWS him into the steel, then drags him up to TOSS him into more steel! Fans tell MJF he F’d up, but Spears HOTSHOTS Wardlow! Fans boo as Spears hurries up a corner, but Wardlow is after him! Wardlow won’t let Spears escape, he CUBS Spears over and over, then throws him down! Wardlow adjusts on the top rope to SWANTON BOMB! Cover, but of course MJF doesn’t count. Wardlow realizes he should’ve known better. Fans chant, “Ref, You Suck!” but MJF doesn’t care. He’s untouchable in this match! But Wardlow stepping closer does scare him…
Wardlow gets Spears up, but MJF LOW BLOWS him! Spears hurries to fireman’s carry, C4!! Cover, MJF is ready, TWO!! MJF went as fast as humanly possible and Wardlow still got out! Not only that, Spears realizes his finisher juts got buried! Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” as he stirs, but Spears goes outside the cage to get his chair! This non-escape cage match has to end in the ring but Spears brings in his insurance policy! MJF holds Wardlow up for Spears, and Spears winds up, but Wardlow moves! CHAIRSHOT TO MJF!! Wardlow didn’t need to touch MJF to get even with him! And now Spears is stunned as fans chant that he F’d up!
Spears then realizes Wardlow is standing back up. Spears turns around, Wardlow brings the straps down! Spears is now wishing escape was a way to win. Wardlow gets Spears up, POWERBOMB! But that’s just one! Here’s another POWERBOMB! And then a third POWERBOMB! The Powerbomb Symphony has the fans rocking, and a spare ref runs in! Wardlow sets up Spears’ chair, gets Spears back up, and fans are thunderous! Wardlow reels Spears in again, POWERBOMB ON THE CHAIR!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!
Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (WILL face MJF at Double or Nothing)
Wardlow got even with Spears, but now he wants MJF! Security rushes in but Wardlow DECKS each of them one at a time! There’s almost no end to these guys, but Wardlow gets that last one with a kick! Wardlow reels this guy in, gets him up, and BOMBS him against the cage!! The man falls into the gap, never to be seen again! Wardlow then climbs up the cage just to make a point that MJF can’t hold him back anymore! Is Wardlow not only going to win his freedom from MJF, but rid AEW of MJF once and for all?
AEW’s heart goes out to Uvalde, Texas.
After the tragedy of the school shooting, all any of us can really do is love each other and pray violence stops.
The Jericho Appreciation Society walks ‘n’ talks.
Daniel Garcia tells Blackpool Combat Club, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz that this Sunday, Double or Nothing, Anarchy in the Arena, the JAS shows you how violent sports entertainers can really be. But then hold on, who is this bozo wearing a Moxley shirt? Menard and Parker get in this guy’s face. Good quality shirt. Is this polyester? Parker asks if he wants a taste of his switchblade… comb. Y’know what happens when you’re a Moxley fan? FIREBALL from Jericho!! The Wizard strikes again! Will the JAS show no mercy to anyone who isn’t on their side?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
As we celebrate three years of AEW where it all began in Las Vegas, Nevada, we have the biggest AEW World Championship match ever on the biggest night ever, Double or Nothing. And the challenger is the Best in the World, CM PUNK! Fans fire up as Punk makes his entrance! And he sits cross-legged on the stage while he rallies the fans to get louder. Punk continues down to the ring and fans chant his name. Schiavone then introduces the other half of this face-to-face, the AEW World Champion, HANGMAN ADAM PAGE! Fans fire up again as the Cowboy makes his way out, belt on his shoulder.
Hangman joins Punk and Schiavone in the ring and Schiavone says these last few weeks, both men have joined commentary and watched the other go to work. Hangman’s used Go To Sleep, Punk’s used the Buckshot, and there’s been a lot of talk and now, for the first time, they’re standing here for a face-to-face interview. Schiavone starts with Punk, saying Punk is prepared for Double or Nothing and becoming the next AEW World Champion. Punk has a mixed reaction from Vegas but with plenty of fans chanting his name. Punk says it is safe to say, “the biggest moment of my career happened right here in Las Vegas.”
Punk is grateful to be in the position he is in, loves the fans all over the world, and plans to walk in challenger, and respectfully walk out the champion. Schiavone now goes to Hangman and says Hangman knows just who he is facing, what everyone knows about CM Punk, but this confidence level is off the charts for the challenger. Fans also have a mixed reaction for Hangman, and still plenty chanting, “COWBOY S*IT!” Hangman says he said exactly what he was going to do to Punk, and did he stutter? “There is nothing that you can do to me to take this championship away from me!”
Schiavone says this is a determined champion, but Punk says he isn’t so sure why Hangman takes this personally. Hangman is a champion because he is Hangman Adam Page, the toughest SOB in AEW, and he holds that gold for a reason. But there is a locker room full of people just like Punk waiting for their shot. This is just business. It’s Punk’s shot, it’s not personal. Schiavone says there seems to be respect here, but Hangman takes the mic to say, “I said three weeks ago exactly what I was going to do to you. I said I was going to destroy you. I said I was going to annihilate you, to embarrass you. And I did not mean at Double or Nothing. I meant right now.”
Punk smirks and says, “Okay,” as Hangman says he’s been waiting for this moment not just weeks, but for months. Hangman has imagined himself sitting on the stage, cross-legged, and he’d pull out a lighter to light a pipe bomb and roll it down to Punk’s feet and watch it blow up in Punk’s face! How cathartic it would feel, and how full circle for Punk, right here in Vegas. But now that we’re here… Hangman realizes that he just can’t do it. He can’t. Not because he’s afraid he’d get fired or because he’s afraid of Punk. But when Hangman thought about what he wanted to say, he realized it’s just what Punk would do.
And fighting Punk’s hatred, pettiness and cowardice with more of the same would not be the right thing to do. But Hangman will say face-to-face, man-to-man, how he feels about Punk. “I don’t hate you. I almost pity you. And I have no respect for you and what you’ve done since you’ve gotten here. You want this AEW World Championship? I don’t think you understand what it means to be a champion. After all these years, I don’t think you get it. Because it’s not just about what happens in this ring, it’s about what happens when that red light turns off. What happens when you go back through that curtain. Those small, quiet moments when you think no one’s watching. That’s what makes a champion.”
Hangman says Punk talks a big game about worker’s rights, but has shown the exact opposite since getting here. Hangman loves this place, cares about this place, this is his home! And at Double or Nothing, Hangman will not be defending this title against Punk. For the first time in Hangman’s life, he will be defending ALL ELITE WRESTLING from Punk! Fans fire up hearing that one! Hangman then offers the mic to Schiavone and he takes it back. Punk’s response is he doesn’t get why Hangman’s so angry and taking this personally. “It makes me a little bit confused. You’re kinda talking in circles, it’s a big riddle, but if you’re so upset that I’m here, you’re gonna have to do something about it on Sunday.
“Win, lose or draw, I respect you, Hangman. But remember, those roads you traveled to get here? They were paved by me. This house that you built? It was constructed with lumber from trees that I chopped down. The world you traveled to get here, to create All Elite Wrestling, happened because I gave you the blueprint. You will shake my hand Sunday. Y’know what, Hangman, you’re gonna shake my hand right now.” Punk holds out his hand, fans are a bit torn, and Punk says all this misplaced anger isn’t for Punk, it’s for Hangman himself. Now shake his hand. Hangman says no thanks, so Punk shoves him. And Hangman DECKS Punk!
Fans fire up as Punk is rather shocked by that move. But he also smiles, perhaps getting exactly what he wanted. Hangman scowls and storms off, will he have a better poker face when it’s Double or Nothing?
AEW looks closer at the coming TBS Championship rematch.

Kyle O’Reilly tells Samoa Joe, Double or Nothing will be an Undisputed Elite finals. But Joe ponders the question, “How do you beat someone like Kyle O’Reilly?

The Hardy Boyz speak.
Matt tells the Young Bucks that their stories both began with a lot of similarities. They were all born and raised by wholesome, religious parents. They had innocent upbringings where they didn’t smoke or drink. They didn’t even curse! And they all had dreams of becoming pro-wrestlers. But that’s where the parallels end. The Hardys broke into the business in the early 90s, and it was a different industry back then, and a majorly different culture. The brutal, tough roads the Hardys had to walk, the Bucks could never, EVER have survived! The Bucks don’t have the grit, the resilience that these two have. The Hardys no only survived, but they became a revolutionary tag team.
Sure, the Bucks are talented, are Elite, but let’s call it like it is. When the Hardys look at the Bucks, and even when the fans look at the Bucks, all they see are Hardy Boy cosplayers! The reason the Hardys are here in AEW is to cement their legacies as the GOATs of tag team wrestling. Jeff says that was GR-E-E-E-E-EAT. Get it? Goats? But they’re not a team in their prime, they’re a team in their OVERPRIME, and it is overtime! The pressure is on to win. This is a clean slate for Jeff, it is his time approaching the eventual time. But this final run will be the best run!
So at Double or Nothing, the Bucks are just two little stepping stones on the Hardys’ way to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions to complete the collection! And if the Bucks think they’re in their prime, well, they will NEVER be better than the Hardys! The Hardys have been better at every stage of life! Better as babies, as kids, as teenagers, at their peak, and right here and now even as middle-aged and extreme! The Bucks may be elite, but this is the DELETE! They will DELETE the Bucks this Sunday! And there’s a saying: Never meet your heroes, they’ll probably disappoint you. But for the Bucks, it’ll be more like disappointed that they can never beat their heroes!

Dan Lambert & the Men of the Year speak.
Lambert says, “Sammy, Tay and Frankie must have a combined IQ of room temperature with the air conditioning on if they thought for one second that busting up Scorpio’s TNT title belt was going to get them the match that they want. Well, somebody please tell these idiots about this new invention we have called the internet and show them how to look up American Top Team. Because maybe then, they would understand that winning every championship there is in combat sports means I probably have every belt maker in the world on speed dial.” That’s right, Lambert ordered Scorpio a brand new belt even before AEW’s favorite couple could tweet out a picture of themselves in the middle of some disgusting act wearing the old one.
So, Scorpio Sky gets a special Friday Night Rampage. The brand new, custom made TNT Championship, handcrafted in Scorpio’s image, will be presented to him and he will love it. Scorpio snaps his fingers and we cut away, but will Sammy, Tay & Frankie just look to break that belt up, too?
Schiavone is on stage.
This Sunday, the AEW Women’s World Championship will be defended. Schiavone introduces the champion, Thunder Rosa! La Mera Mera makes her way out, and Schiavone asks her about Deeb’s challenge. Rosa wants us to see her face. It has no face paint! This is the real Rosa, the face of someone who has worked and earned everything she has, and is grateful for being champion. That has never complained, either. Because that is what champions do. Deeb, “mi reina,” you are NOT a champion. Fans cheer Rosa on, and Rosa tells Deeb that she complains, is a little petty.
Rosa says Deeb points fingers at people and companies, pinning things on her past, with her questionable changes. Maybe Deeb should look in a mirror and blame herself. Rosa’s face used to look up to Deeb, but no more! And on Sunday, Deeb won’t see this face. On Sunday, the war paint is on. On Sunday, the warrior inside Rosa takes over! On Sunday, La Mera Mera will teach Deeb a lesson in respect for disrespecting Schiavone, for disrespecting Rosa’s mentor, Dustin Rhodes, for disrespecting the fans, and especially for disrespecting Rosa, the AEW Women’s World Champion!! And y’know what? Deeb will be very scared, because Rosa will haunt her forever!
AEW returns as Schiavone interviews Red Velvet backstage.
A tremendous match between The Chef and Kris Statlander in the Owen Hart Cup, but Statlander won. Velvet is surely upset. No sh*t, Schiavone. Velvet says she should have won that match, and she should be facing Ruby Soho. But speaking of, Soho walks in because she heard her name. Does Velvet have something to say to her? Yes, actually. If Soho needs to know how to beat Statlander, Velvet’s got this notebook right here. Statlander’s knee is messed up, and she has a bad shoulder, too.
Velvet leaves and Soho says she can admit, when she faced Statlander last time, Soho won by the skin of her teeth. But in the next round of the Owen Hart Cup, Soho knows she’s not facing the same Statlander. This notebook is useless, so Soho throws it away. Soho will keep what Velvet said in mind, though. Will the Runaway be able to get past whatever this new form the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has taken and head for Double or Nothing? And speaking of…

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (advances to the finals)
Even with one good arm, the ROH World Television Champion pulls off the victory! But here comes Adam Cole, BAYBAY! Cole and Joe have never had a match against each other before, and now they will in a historic finals match at Double or Nothing! Who will win the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament?
A great episode for Dynamite, especially as a go-home for Double or Nothing. For one, opening with the Steel Cage was an awesome move. I should’ve figured MJF would go that far to try and screw Wardlow over, but it was awesome how Wardlow turned it around on MJF. That was one serious headshot and MJF sold it perfectly. Wardlow of course wins, and of course we’re now getting MJF VS Wardlow at Double or Nothing, and who knows how that goes. There is a very good chance MJF wins, though, with the dirtiest of ways to win, but I bet Vegas would go nuts if Wardlow won. Also great to see that I called the TNT Championship was being remodeled for Scorpio, I bet that thing will look awesome.
Great promo from the JAS, and wow, Jericho with another fireball just because that staffer wore a Moxley shirt. If this were sports entertainment, they would’ve mentioned Jericho getting fined a lot of money. Regal and Jericho were very good on commentary during Moxley & Kingston VS Private Party, which was a lot of fun and a pretty good sampler of what Anarchy in the Arena will look like. I don’t want it to be so chaotic because that’ll be hard for everyone to keep up with all the action, but it will surely be just brawling all over ringside and even in the ring, and who knows what we’ll see these teams do to each other.
Good promo vignette from Jade and Jay to hype up the rematch, but again, because it’s Jay again, I feel like Jade’s got this one. I did like that Velvet, though Heel, gave Ruby, a Face, advice on how to beat Statlander since Velvet is now Statlander’s enemy. Ruby had a good Face response, and Ruby VS Statlander on Rampage is going to be a great match. Great promo from the Hardys to hype up their match with the Bucks, no idea who wins that match, but I definitely see the winner going after the AEW World Tag titles. And while Rosa had a very good promo, they started her music a little early. Probably just them misreading her promo, but it also felt like they were playing her off, which is a bit rude to do to your AEW Women’s World Champion. But that aside, Rosa is surely retaining against Deeb.
Great segment from Hangman and Punk, and though Hangman purposefully danced around the issue, I’m pretty sure what he was getting at is Punk coming in and throwing off all the plans for the AEW originals, Hangman himself included. Punk also had a good counter saying he was the foundation of what AEW is even about. That match is going to be amazing, Hangman knocking Punk down technically means Punk is standing tall because he got in Hangman’s head. I would think Hangman retains the title and that strengthens his reign, probably so he’ll be real strong for Kenny Omega’s eventual return.
The ROH World Tag Team Championship match was great stuff, and I even liked that it ended up like it did because The United Empire shows up to further build towards Forbidden Door. FTR wants more tag titles, RPG Vice called out a lot of champions, and now it seems the Empire figures they’ll grab up titles, we could get a huge tag title match with this feud. The Triple Threat of JB, Starks and Swerve was great stuff, and between Swerve winning the match and Keith running off the other heavies, I have a feeling Keith & Swerve end up losing somehow. That might mean Jurassic Express finds a way to retain, maybe Team Taz wins, but who knows.
Great “double main event” from the Owen Hart Cup Semifinals, and we even got a good promo vignette to hype the matches up. Britt VS Storm was of course still affected by Hayter showing up, but I almost thought Hayter was going to accidently cost Britt. But no, Britt still wins, as expected, and she is paralleling Cole as they’re both finalists. Joe VS Kyle was awesome stuff, and especially with Joe selling the arm damage from last week. Joe winning was great, though, and that gives us a classic Face VS Heel showdown. I suppose it would be too early for Cole VS Kyle, possible dysfunction between them in AEW after doing that story in NXT, and Cole VS Joe will still be awesome. But with Lethal, Sonjay & Singh lurking, I bet Joe loses because of them and Cole wins, he and Britt will be an Owen Hart Cup winner power couple.
My Score: 8.9/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (5/24/22)
Roppongi Vice gets Dark!
Rocky Romero and #JustTrent arrive in Universal Studios!
Before challenging FTR for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, Roppongi Vice fires up in the Dark! Will they be partying in the Dark, too?
- Kris Statlander VS Avery Breaux; Statlander wins.
- Matt Menard & Angelo Parker VS Eli Isom & T.U.G Cooper; Menard & Parker win.
- A.Q.A VS Brittany Jade; AQA wins.
- Lee Moriarty VS Alan Angels; Moriarty wins.
- Sonny Kiss VS Carlie Bravo; Kiss wins.
- Robyn Renegade VS Vicky Dreamboat; Robyn wins.
- Anthony Ogogo VS Trenton Storm; Ogogo wins.
- Leva Bates VS Kia Dream; Bates win.
- Roppongi Vice VS Peter Avalon & Ryan Nemeth w/ JD Drake; RPG Vice wins.
A good line-up of nine, and great to see Leva Bates back in action. Also nice to see the team formerly known as 2point0 having a tag match, that’ll help get them going in the tag division while also building towards the “Anarchy in the Arena” at Double or Nothing. And RPG Vice will definitely get a win before their match on Dynamite.
