Jon Moxley speaks.
“Lately, I’m a little pissed off, I’m a little outta sorts. I’ve lost patience for anything that takes patience so let’s just get down to it. The fact is, no matter what anybody wants to say, there is no man in AEW that can pin me. There is no man in AEW that can submit me. But tonight, they want to play games with ladders? What, y’all think I’ve never been in a ladder match before?” This is Philly! Let’s get stupid with ladders! Moxley doesn’t know what’s what anymore cuz he has a three-month-old at home and she’s insane! But AEW is his company and that is HIS belt! Will the Maniac get crazy and climb back up to the top?
CM Punk is here!
Philly sings Cult of Personality for him as he high-fives commentary then heads to the ring. But he does take a crowd dive detour first! Punk then gets the mic to ask, “Who’s tired of this yet?” Not the fans here! Punk shows up thinking they will, but he’s not so he’ll keep the love fest going. Do you see his new Jordans? He comes from humble beginnings, moved to Philadelphia and lived here about three years. Punk wrestled on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, then ran a wrestling school the other days. He ate, slept and breathed pro-wrestling. He loves Philly so much cuz it gave him so much, so thank you.
And because of that money, Punk bought an iPod and a laptop, holy s*it did he feel rich! But not because of the money, but spiritually. He had everything he wanted. He did all of those things and immersed himself in a community, he really hopes no one is sick of it because he loves being immersed back in this again. And because Philly is and always will be special, Punk wants to give back. Outside of buying these animals cheesecake, or cheesesteak, whichever it is, well, they can have their pick. Does Punk wrestle or do they get cheesesteaks? Fans seem pretty torn, actually. Okay then, go buy yourselves cheesesteaks, he’ll wrestle!
Punk say someone tried to stop all this before it began, he’s talking to Daniel Garcia! If Garcia has the balls, he’ll meet Punk on Rampage! LET’S GO!! The Best in the World just called out Red Death, will fans be celebrating that match with some cheesesteaks? And what’s even bigger, Punk gives the young man cosplaying Orange Cassidy those very Jordans! Thumbs up!
Arn Anderson has lit a literal fire.
He’s burning a suit jacket! “This is symbolic of the same thing Malakai Black did, coming in an unlocked door to AEW…” Cody Rhodes walks out and sees Arn burning this in his backyard. Arn sarcastically says Cody’s finally aware. C’mon down, Cody. Everyone thought Arn walked out on Cody but here he is. Cody says that was an expensive suit. Arn says Cody can have hit TV shows and buy multi-million dollar mansions, and when he’s winning, everyone will go, “Damn right, man, I’m happy for you.” Cody’s looking good right now, huh? Arn asks for the tie and Cody hands it over. Why doesn’t Cody just paint a star on his face again and it’ll be alright?
Arn says this is just more excess. Cody doesn’t want Arn to throw the tie away but then Arn slaps him! Cody threw Arn away, so it’s only fair. Cody throws the tie in the fire. Will all of this get Cody to reignite his fire for pro-wrestling?
AEW hears from Bobby Fish.
“I’ve been an athlete and a martial artist my entire life. I’ve wrestled in front of 40,000 people in the Tokyo Dome, I’ve won title all around this world, and that brings me to AEW.” Spanish God, Sammy Guevara, is destined to go down as the shortest reigning champion in AEW history. And why? You’re looking at him. Will Fish make this an infamous title match?
AEW TNT Championship: Sammy Guevara VS Bobby Fish!
Fuego Del Sol was avenged when his best friend, Sammy, defeated Miro 1v1 just last week on Dynamite! But the Infamous One made his presence known during Rhodes to the Top! Will this debut be Fish’s road right to the top?

But wait a minute. Here come Dan Lambert, American Top Team and the Men of the Year! They’re targeting the Inner Circle now that Chris Jericho is on the sidelines. Paige VanZant is egging Sammy on, but that’s to distract him from the BLINDSIDE by Scorpio Sky! Then it’s just a mugging by Junior Dos Santos! Lambert taunts the fans and mockingly wonders where Jericho is. But here comes Fuego Del Sol! He goes after Scorpio but gets caught and beat down by the rest of American Top Team! Fans boo but Lambert revels in it, until CHRIS JERICHO is here!! Jericho and Jake Hager run in to run off Lambert, but they take the fight to the MMA meat heads!
Jericho DECKS Dos Santos, Hager takes out two at once! The Inner Circle will not stand for this would be invasion, but then Lambert tells Judas to stop. The fans still sing it, even more so because it annoys Lambert! Lambert wants to clear up some confusion on who’s calling the shots! Jericho’s been a big deal for a long time, and Tony Conman has all the stroke in the world when he goes on tour to sh*tstain towns like Philadelphia! But you see, next week, Rampage is in Miami! South Florida is American Top Team Country! The King of 305 is Jorge Masvidal, and if anyone has a say, it’s him! The Balls of Jericho aren’t as big as they think!
So Lambert makes a Six Man Tag match! The Inner City Jerkoffs VS The Men of the Year and former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Junior Dos Santos! Homefield advantage goes to them, because Lambert and his baddest bodyguard on the planet are going to be ringside! And if you knee-d a reminder, well Jericho met him last week. Duh, it’s Jorge Masvidal! Jericho tells Lambert that he didn’t hear a damn thing he said! But he does know this! Wait, the mic cuts off? Oh, here’s one that works! Jericho says here’s what he does know! “We are going to beat the living SH*T out of you!!” AND that crap team! Then see you in Miami! Will things get downright ugly in South Beach?
The Acclaimed speak.
Or rather, Max Caster raps. “Yo, it’s the Acclaimed and we want the tag titles. Lucha Brothers ’bout to be dead on arrival. Fenix gonna burn up whenever we go off. If you ask Alex, Penta said no mas. You can’t handle the Acclaimed. Trust me, you wear those masks cuz you look so ugly. Friday, Rampage, see us in the ring, The Acclaimed winning the titles and doin’ our thang!” Anthony Bowens agrees, the Lucha Brothers are going to get their “Scooby-Doo villain lookin’ asses” stomped out and the tag titles are being taken away. And everyone will celebrate! Why? Because everyone loves The Acclaimed! And that’s a mic drop! But will Fenix & Penta really drop those titles like Caster does bars?
AEW returns with Tony Schiavone in the ring.
It’s Dynamite’s second anniversary and he heard from Tony Khan that the only way to celebrate that is in the great city of Philadelphia. Furthermore, two years ago that under the leadership of Tony Khan, AEW changed the wrestling business! The fans are to thank for that! And one year ago, AEW introduced the TNT Championship. We’ve had great TNT Champions since then. And on January 5th, 2022, AEW moves to TBS. Now that’s some old school stuff right there. As such, there will be a new championship! This title will be the TBS Championship, it will be in the AEW WOMEN’S DIVISION!
Aubrey Edwards gets to unveil the brand new AEW TBS Championship! It’s black with a blue ribbon and the TBS logo. There will be a tournament that culminates on January 5th with Dynamite’s move! Who will be in it and who will win it to start a new legacy in AEW?
AEW shares Jim Ross’ interview with Darby Allin.
Good ol’ JR appreciates that Darby wanted to have this time to talk. JR was uncomfortable listening to MJF speak last week, that guy was being a total arse. But JR is looking forward to tonight, Darby VS Nick Comoroto, a much, much larger man. But the meat of the matter here is Darby’s face paint. JR is sure Darby knows where this is going. Yes, Max made everything very public. But Darby will elaborate on why he paints his face. Max talked about Darby’s experience with his uncle when Darby was just five years old.
Yes, his uncle was drinking and driving, then passed away. That is what shaped Darby into who he is. He paints only half his face, because he feels half dead inside. Darby’s respect for people, his trust for people. It’s also why he has the words, “Nothing’s over until you’re in the ground,” tattooed on his chest. Darby did face death that day, but he’s still here. Max can say whatever he wants, and everyone can expect Darby to pop him in the face for it, but no. Mentally, physically, Max will not win this war. Max is a book Darby’s read a thousand times. No one has met someone like Darby, he guarantees it. Will Darby be relentless in toppling those who think they’re above him?
Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Nick Comoroto w/ The Factory!
The Icon is in Darby’s corner, but the Freak Beast has QT Marshall and Aaron Solo, so he has to be careful. Wait, nevermind, he LEAPS from the corner onto Comoroto and Solo! Down they go and Darby fires off on Comoroto! Comoroto scoops but Darby slips off to POST him! Darby puts Comoroto in the ring, the bell rings and Darby fires off! Comoroto blocks the whip, then whips Darby, only for Darby to leap frog and keep moving. Darby springboards to COFFIN ATTACK! And then a corner COFFIN ATTACK, to a SHOTGUN dropkick! Darby brings Comoroto around, fires off forearms but Comoroto shoves him.
Darby gets around to Throwback but no Stunner! COmoroto powers Darby to a POWERSLAM! Comoroto fires up and fans boo as AEW goes picture in picture.
Comoroto paces, QT applauds, and Darby drags himself to ropes. Comoroto drags Darby up, bumps him off buckles then throws body shots. Comoroto stomps Darby, digs his knee in, and the ref counts. Comoroto lets off, mocks the fans like he can’t hear them, then goes back to Darby. Comoroto TOSSES Darby across the ring! Comoroto taunts fans that Darby ain’t nothing, then he chokes Darby on the ropes. The ref counts, COmoroto lets off Darby and Darby gets to a corner. Comoroto whips him out then back in hard! Darby rolls and hits buckles, then writhes while Comoroto roars. Comoroto drags Darby up, scoops him, but Darby slips off to fire off forearms!
Comoroto knees low, whips Darby to a corner, then runs in corner to corner, only to RAM himself into buckles! Darby comes back to fire off forearms, but Comoroto shoves him away. Darby returns again but Comoroto lifts him up! Darby uses that to HOTSHOT Comoroto! But Comoroto comes back to drag Darby into the ring and back suplex! Darby lands on his feet, boots from the corner, then goes up to THROWBACK STUNNER! Comoroto is down, Darby fires up and climbs! COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!
Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall
Sting gets in the ring with Darby to make sure The Factory doesn’t try anything. But then QT slips in and turns Sting around, DIAMOND CUTTER! But Sting gets right back up!? QT ain’t no DDP, and he turns around into a LOW BLOW! Sting gives QT a SCORPION DEATH DROP! Will The Factory learn to leave the relentless ones alone? Is Darby’s message to MJF loud and clear?
The Dark Order talks backstage.
Evil Uno knows he hasn’t made the best decisions lately. He knows that sometimes they’ve disagreed. But from here on out, it is now up to the group who makes decisions. Alex Reynolds says that the decisions should be made by all of them. The others agree, and they agree on a Dark Order democracy! John Silver likes that they all did the claw as part of raising their hands. So then, the first thing they should vote on is… Alan Angels putting the mask back on! Bro is way too ugly. Hey, man, don’t you read Twitter? He and Silver look exactly alike so if Angels is ugly… What? Angels has a bald head and a beard, he looks more like Stu Grayson. Wait, what? Stu doesn’t see it.
They start bickering about who is the balder and more bearded, but Anna Jay shouts over them. Are they all on the same page or not? Right, sorry. Claws up. Will the next thing they vote on is who goes after what titles? Or perhaps, who they look to have #JoinDarkOrder?
Schiavone is in the ring with Dante Martin.
Philly is chanting for this great young athlete and Schiavone says it’s great to have him here. Dante thanks Schiavone and then takes the mic. “The past couple months, I’ve been proving I’m a problem to everybody in that locker room.” Fans cheer because they agree, and he says he’s been in the likes of Kenny Omega. Not only has Dante held his own, he’s given them a run for their money. This goes out to the locker room: Dante is here to fight ANYBODY they bring. In that case, the lights go out! And when they come back up, MALAKAI BLACK is in the ring!! Schiavone bails but Dante turns around to see the Dark Father. BLACK MIST, to BLACK MASS!!
The lights go back out, just like for Dante! And when they come back up, Dante is long gone but Malakai has the mic. “The House of Black accepts.” Malakai has his eyes on Angel Dorado, will he make Dante fall back to Earth?
AEW returns and Ricky Starks is in the ring!
“This right here is the original FTW Championship! The same championship that was built down the road in South Philadelphia. This is the same championship that Taz had, because it represented an FTW mindset, and the reason why I am the FTW Champion is because I have the same damn mindset.” But Starks can’t say the same for the former champ, Brian Cage. There’s a reason Starks is out here. Starks wanted to make history and do good by the people, but good ol’ Cage didn’t show up to work! Yeah, really sucks. Starks wanted to wrestle and challenge Cage’s carny ass to a Philly Street Fight. But wait, here IS Cage! Cage DID show, and now he’s going to the ring!
Starks swings on Cage but Cage dodges to CLOBBER Starks! Cage chases Starks to a corner and fires off clothesline after clothesline! Team Taz bails Starks out and fans boo that this isn’t continuing! Will The Machine finally get his hands on Absolute and absolutely destroy him?
The AEW Women’s Division responds to the TBS Championship.
Thunder Rosa does whatever she wants, whenever she wants, and she wants that title! Skye Blue knows she’s the youngest and newest kid on the block, but she is in it to win it! Ruby Soho says when they knocked on her door and invited her to the tournament, she did not expect it to be for a title. “So ladies, expect the unexpected.” That TBS is the kind of flavor Ruby likes. Mark Sterling asks if Jade Cargill heard about this new tournament. You mean the one she’s gonna win? She is gonna take that title and make it into #ThatBitchShow. TBS knows comedy, but are they about to see a whole lotta action?
Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb!
Justin Roberts says it straight up: if the Full Metal Warrior wins here tonight, that is her historic 50th win! Shida will be immortalized as the first woman in AEW to reach that mark! But will the Woman of 1000 Holds hold Shida back from that benchmark in Philly?
The bell rings and the two circle as fans rally up. They tie up, Deeb arm-drags but Shida comes back. They tie up again, Shida arm-drags and Deeb gets a bit more serious.

Shida offers a handshake, Deeb SLAPS Shida’s face! Shida and Deeb tie up, Shida headlocks and grinds, but Deeb powers out. Shida redirects and BOOTS Deeb down!
Shida bumps Deeb off buckles, climbs up top and holds up 5-0! She rains down fast hands, but only gets about 7. Shida comes back to use a headbutt and a dropkick to pay Deeb back! Shida then drags Deeb out to the apron, CLUBS her, then gets space for the RUNNING KNEE LIFT! Fans fire up as Deeb falls to the floor. Shida gets the chair out! She sets it up, fans rally but Deeb takes the chair away and puts it back under the ring! Deeb gets in the ring, Shida chases after, ducks the haymaker but Deeb gets her with a DRAPING GUILLOTINE! And then, a DRAPING NECKBREAKER as AEW goes picture in picture!
Shida hits the floor, Deeb paces around to soak up cheer and jeers, then she taunts Shida as she’s on the floor. The ring count climbs, Shida gets up but Deeb goes out after her to put her in the ring. Shida hits back but Deeb stands her up for another NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Deeb paces as Shida sits up. Deeb drags Shida up, Shida hits back again, but Deeb CLUBS her down. Deeb EuroUppers, then EuroUppers again. Deeb brings Shida around to DECK her with a EuroUpper! Deeb paces around, drags Shida back up, and whips her to then reel her in for a cobra twist! Shida endures as Deeb digs a claw into the ribs! Deeb then shifts to digging in an elbow as AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and fans rally up as both women slowly rise. Shida ROCKS Deeb with a forearm, then another! Deeb puts up her guard but Shida waits her out, to then ROCK her again! Shida reels Deeb in, guillotine SWING and TOSS! Fans fire up as Shida goes up top and Deeb slowly stands. Deeb turns around into a missile dropkick! Cover, TWO!

NO 50th here! The Woman of 1000 Holds takes the already-made award and CRACKS it on Shida’s head! Fans boo but Deeb soaks it all up. Will Deeb be far more than someone else’s stepping stone in AEW?
Backstage interview with Darby Allin.
Alex Marvez congratulates him but he informs Darby that MJF just asked for a match with Darby next week. Does Darby accept the challenge? Of course. He thought MJF would never ask. But then a limousine rolls up and Darby already knows it’s MJF. Only for someone to SMACK Darby from behind with a chair! Oh of course, that’s Shawn Spears! And Shawn grabs the camera to film as Darby is mugged by the masked versions of FTR and Wardlow! They LAWNDART Darby into a stop sign! Then they bring the railing around and stack them on top of each other. Wardlow drags Darby up to a fireman’s carry and F10 Darby onto the steel!!
Then a maxed MJF rolls up using Darby’s own skateboard, to then CHOKE Darby with it!! The Pinnacle truly become thugs as they mug Darby, but will this only make Darby more determined to break MJF’s never-pinned, never-submitted streak?
Rampage makes it all official!
After calling him out earlier, CM Punk gets his wish! Daniel Garcia will face the Best in the World! Plus, before the TBS Tournament Brackets are even made, we’re getting Skye Blue VS Jade Cargill! Will the new girl shock the world and end Jade’s undefeated streak? And Brian Cage gets his chance, he will be facing Ricky Starks in that Philly Street Fight, FOR the FTW Championship! Can the Machine take back the title Team Taz cheated him out of? And in a rare FOURTH match on Rampage, the Lucha Brothers look to shut up The Acclaimed! The AEW World Tag Team Championships are on the line, has Platinum Max’s mouth written a check he and Bowens can’t cash?
AEW hears from Lio Rush.
“Yo, Dante. I know you probably can’t see right now, and your head is spinning a million miles per second, but I got to say that I am a huge fan.” Dante may not know him, but this is the Man of the Hour, Lio Rush. You can also him #LBOLio because he’s a businessman. Let’s talk business. Dante is hurtin’, and not just physically. Lio sees Dante and sees an undervalued commodity, a sleeping giant. Lio wants to take Dante to new heights. So here’s the proposal: If Dante takes the challenge from Malakai Black, maybe Dante needs a little guidance. Maybe Dante needs to #RiskRushRepeat and get dat money. So how about this? Lio can have his people call Dante, and they’ll talk soon.
Schiavone interviews Team Britt backstage.
Jamie Hayter & Rebel stand by AEW Women’s World Champion, Britt Baker, to discuss the NEW AEW TBS Championship. Britt is for one hoping for a Cartoon Network Title, but nonetheless, TBS is fantastic! Because now, all the jealous bitches can finally just fight amongst themselves instead of obsessing over her. Jealousy is in fact a disease, Britt has no cure for them, so have fun fighting in your little tournament. Britt will be watching from the top. Yours Truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Will Britt be watching one title race while overlooking those coming for her?
Medical update on Darby Allin.
Because of the blatant backstage assault by the poorly disguised Pinnacle, Darby is NOT medically cleared to compete next week on Dynamite. More will be said on Rampage this Friday, what consequences will there be for MJF and his minions?
Casino Ladder Match: Lance Archer VS Jon Moxley VS PAC VS Andrade El Idolo VS Orange Cassidy VS Matt Hardy VS ???
The innovative match type returns for another year of chaos and opportunity! All but entry number 7, the “Joker,” is known, and will be sent out at random. This match goes until someone brings down the giant poker chip and the opportunity for the AEW World Championship, but will it finish up fast or take all lucky seven to get it done?
First out, Freshly Squeezed Orange Cassidy, followed by The Bastard, PAC! These two know each other well, but what’re the odds it only takes these two?
The bell rings and Pac stares Cassidy down. Cassidy puts on his elbow pad, puts his hands up, but Pac keeps them from going in the pockets. Pac dares Cassidy to get serious, so the sunglasses are tossed aside. Cassidy and Pac tie up, Pac waistlocks and SLAMS Cassidy, then floats all over him to get a rear bearhug. Fans rally up and Cassidy stands up to switch and shove. Pac runs Cassidy over then mocks the fans. Things speed up, or at least they do for Pac as Cassidy just kinda lounges. Pac is annoyed, but Cassidy avoids his stomp and bails out. Pac pursues, Cassidy goes back in the ring but runs into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER!
Pac seethes, drags Cassidy up and throws him out of the ring. Pac then goes out to get a ladder and brings it into the ring. Cassidy gets in to slide the ladder back out? That’s not how a ladder match works! But Cassidy wants to put his hands in his pockets, until Pac rushes in! Cassidy dodges, comes back and tilt-o-whirls, only to be blocked! The clock hits zero just as Pac hits a BRAINBUSTER! The third entry is Andrade El Idolo! The Black Mask is ready to settle things and so is Pac! Andrade gets a tall ladder right from the get go, only for Pac to dropkick it into him! Pac then goes out to get his own ladder and put it in the ring.
Pac sets up his ladder, Andrade hurries into the ring, and he springboards to get to the top! Pac and Andrade throw forearms up top, Andrade SMACKS Pac off the top! Andrade skips the chip to SUPER SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB Pac down!! Pac is all folded up and fans lose their minds! Andrade hobbles up, puts Pac in a corner and then takes the ladder to wedge in Pac’s face. Andrade rallies the fans and he runs corner to corner, but Cassidy stands in his way! Hands in the pockets! “Vicious” shin kicks! Andrade puts his hands up, and he does have pockets on his pants, but he CHOPS Cassidy instead! Andrade grins but Cassidy dodges to no-hands RANA!
Another countdown as Cassidy SHOTGUNS Pac into the ladder! The fourth entry is Big Money Matt! More deep history as Hardy goes right at Cassidy, and he catches the Orange Punch to a SIDE EFFECT! Hardy gets the ladder to RAM down Pac, RAM down Cassidy and RAM down Andrade! Hardy sets the ladder up and climbs! Cassidy hurries to anchor Matt, then drag him down. Hardy elbows Cassidy away to then SMACK Cassidy off the side! The ladder is put down on its side as AEW goes picture in picture.
Hardy waistlocks Cassidy but Cassidy ducks as Pac’s SUPERKICK comes in! Hardy takes the hit, Andrade gets in to put Pac on the apron then DECK him! Cassidy runs, dodges, tilt-o-whirl becomes a SHOTGUN dropkick for Hardy, and a DDT for Andrade!! Cassidy is right back up to throw Hardy out to join Andrade. Pac sees those targets and climbs up top! ARIHARA MOONSAULT onto both Hardy and Andrade! All three men are down on the ramp and we have 15 seconds until the next entry! Pac hurries in the ring, he and Cassidy stare down but the clock strikes zero! The fifth entry is the Murderhawk Monster!!
Lance Archer and Jake the Snake already have some scrub from the back, and Archer is carrying him to the ring! Archer throws the guy at Andrade but Andrade ducks, only to get a BOOT! Cassidy DIVES but Archer catches him in a choke grip! APRON CHOKE SLAM! Pac runs into a shove, Archer scoops him for the inverted crucifix! Pac escapes the Blackout to KICK away on the leg! Pac runs but Archer goes sideways to DERAIL him! Hardy returns and CLUBS Archer, but Archer JABS Hardy, and ripcords for a ride on the HELLACOASTER! Archer just solo’d the field and he sets up a ladder! Archer then goes out to fetch another ladder to make a bridge.
Archer drags Cassidy up, puts him on the bridge he made, then he climbs up the corner for a SPLASH onto Cassidy! Everything topples over, then Archer BOOTS Hardy out! Archer sets up one of the ladders, taking a moment to consider his options. The countdown is already hitting zero so he watches the ramp. Of course, the sixth entry is Jon Moxley! The Maniac comes in from the crowd as always, so Archer goes out to meet him! The beef starts here as they brawl among the Philly fans! Moxley kicks and headlocks then uses a fan’s chair to SMACK Archer! Archer heads back to ringside so Moxley KNEES him in the back!
Moxley RUSSIAN LEG SWEEPS Archer into railing! Moxley gets another chair and he runs in to THRWO it at Archer! Archer throws it back! Archer kicks Moxley around, then goes back to the ring to take the ladder and pick it up. But Cassidy gets in for an ORANGE PUNCH! Archer stays up but the ladder is now around his neck! Cassidy ORANGE PUNCHES through the ladder!! Archer is now doubled over, the ladder the only thing keeping him up and vice-versa. So Cassidy climbs Archer to climb the ladder! But Moxley yanks Cassidy down and whips him into the ladder! Archer staggers to a corner, Cassidy staggers into an X PLEX!
Moxley then runs to SHOTGUN the ladder into Archer! Moxley puts the ladder in a corner as a ramp but the countdown is up! The Joker this year is… HANGMAN PAGE!! The Anxious Millennial Cowboy makes his return in a big way, and is wearing brand spankin’ new gear! Fans are thunderous as Hangman goes to the ring and throws hands with Moxley! Moxley runs but into a BIG right! Hangman then clotheslines Moxley up and out! Hangman dumps Archer out to join him, then catches Cassidy’s crossbody for a FALL AWAY SLAM onto the ladder! Hangman uses the ladder to triangle jump and LARIAT Andrade!
Hangman sees Hardy getting another ladder, so he PLANCHAS the ladder onto Hardy! Hangman fires up and gets in the ring, but Pac SMACKS him with a chair! Pac stomps Hangman over and over, then seethes as he gets a ladder. Pac stands that up in a corner, throws the other ladder out of the ring, and fetches a TABLE! Fans fire up as Pac stomps Hangman then sets the table back up in the ring. Pac puts Hangman on the table, goes up the ladder, but Andrade hurries to CLUB Pac down. Pac kicks Andrade, Andrade hits back. They brawl up top, Pac HEADBUTTS Andrade and El Idolo falls onto a ladder on the outside!!
Hangman gets up and he grabs at Pac! Hangman climbs, fires off forearms on Pac, then Alabama lifts! Fans already go nuts as Hangman hits DEADEYE through the table!! Hangman roars and stands despite clutching his knee. But Moxley gets in the ring to kick low and PARADIGM SHIFT!! The Maniac doesn’t care about #CowboyShit as he stands the ladder up. But Cassidy surges into the ring! He climbs right up, fires off hands on Moxley, but Moxley BITES ORANGE! Hardy shoves the ladder over and both Moxley and Cassidy fall into HOTSHOTS off the ropes! Hardy rolls Cassidy out and then puts him on a table.
Hardy throws down hands, then climbs a ladder, he goes V1 with the SUPER LEG DROP through the table!! But Hardy may have just DELETED himself and Cassidy from winning! Moxley is climbing the ladder in the ring but Archer hurries after him! Archer CHOKE SLAMS Moxley off the ladder, then moves table wreckage out of the way. But Hangman BUCKSHOTS outta nowhere!! Hangman climbs, Moxley returns and uses a chair to SMACK Hangman on the back! Moxley climbs now but Hangman is still on the other side. Moxley throws haymakers to send Hangman down, but Hangman climbs back up!
Hangman fires forearms, Moxley gives them back, fans are thunderous! The two slowly down, and Moxley suddenly falls off! Hangman is all alone, he climbs to the top! Hangman takes the chip off the hook thing, and wins!!
Winner: Hangman Page (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW World Championship)
A wild return and a wilder win, the Cowboy is riding high already! He toasts to Philly, but when and where will Hangman get his revenge and his title shot on Kenny Omega?
A great episode for AEW and a lot of great stuff set up for the near future. For one, the TBS Championship as the women’s midcard is great, and even with a lot of great choices to face Britt Baker, there are just that many great choices to have the TBS title. Shida VS Deeb was a great match tonight, but I feel like they telegraphed Shida not winning with all the hype and already having the crystal trophy prepared. Both women should definitely be in the tournament, though, and it’d be great for Shida if she had the pressure of winning number 50 and a tournament match put on her so that she gives a big opening round win like Ruby Soho.
The 8 Man Tag was an epic opener, but of course The Elite needed some help from Cutler and Nakazawa to essentially eliminate Christian Cage. The Elite winning is fine, as Adam Cole is still new to AEW and needs to build his win-loss record. CM Punk has a good moment putting Philly and its love of pro-wrestling over, and he’ll have a very good match with Daniel Garcia. He obviously puts his feud with Team Taz on hold now that we finally get Starks VS Cage. The Street Fight is totally so Team Taz can get involved but I bet Cage gets to wreck everyone as he goes for the title. I have no idea if Cage wins the belt or not but it’s just good to see the FTW Championship defended period.
Darby Allin has a pretty good interview promo with JR, he has a very good match with Comoroto, and the attack from The Pinnacle definitely extends the feud with MJF. I am betting the match of Darby VS MJF doesn’t happen until Full Gear, so expect weeks of MJF defending his team’s innocence and still running Darby down. Dante Martin being Malakai Black’s next target is quite the great move, especially for Dante. Can the House of Black recruit the people Malakai beats up? Whenever it is Darius finally gets back, Top Flight being led and guided by Malakai would be really cool, to me. Malakai is a striker and very technical, they’re fast and high-flying, it makes a great dynamic.
I also like that Lio Rush is reaching out trying to do his own recruiting. AEW likes having stables and factions, so it makes sense Lio would want to have someone to team up with. Dark Order skips having a supreme leader to make this into a family democracy type deal, but I have a feeling this just leads to a new way they start disagreeing and end up electing a new leader after all. Arn basically sneaking onto Cody’s property and burning his clothes was an interesting way for Arn to get Cody to wake up and be a wrestler first, face of AEW second. I am a bit surprised they did something like this so soon, there should’ve been more Cody doing his own soul searching and Arn focusing on Lee Johnson.
The TNT Championship was great stuff, especially for Fish’s AEW in-ring debut. Sammy of course retains, he only just got that belt. American Top Team further going after Inner Circle through Sammy was a logical move, and I have a feeling this Six Man Tag is mostly a holdover so they can save something like Masvidal VS Jericho or the return of the MMA Cage Match in AEW for Full Gear. Still not really feeling this MMA VS AEW thing, but whatever, seems like plenty of other fans are still into it. Then the Casino Ladder Match was a great match, a lot of great destruction and mayhem, but as I said before, all the feuds and history cancelled out, the Joker won.
Now Hangman being the Joker was a great way for him to return, but it is so clear that this win was to make up for the All Out audible. We all know CM Punk and Bryan Danielson coming to AEW was big, but I still say it shouldn’t have changed the plan of Hangman winning the world title at the PPV he failed to get it before. Full Gear will be where Omega VS Hangman happens, and yet I have no idea if Hangman gets the title now. It would help make Full Gear big and give year three a big start if Hangman goes into the holidays as top champion. Anxious Millennial Cowboy Thanksgiving and Christmas specials, anyone?
My Score: 9.1/10

Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal!
Another year, another battle for that coveted $150,000 diamond ring! But things are a little different, as Maxwell Jacob Friedman, our NEW AEW World Champion, has the prerogative to not participate in this match.

Winner: Ricky Starks (#1 contender to the Dynamite Diamond Ring)
But to rain on the parade already is MJF! The AEW World Champion and #TripleB, the Big Burberry Belt, are here with a mic as fans boo hard as they can. The fans then cheer on Starks and MJF smirks. MJF tells Starks, “I’ll be with you in one second.” MJF then says, “Bryan Danielson, a little birdy told me you didn’t wanna show up tonight, and I think I know the real reason why. The real reason why is because you’re terrified of me. And I don’t blame ya, bud. After what I did to your boy, Willy Reegs, I’d be scared, too.”
Fans boo but MJF says, “Because I’m a bad, bad man. And that’s why in a week from now, I’m gonna be a FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, F-F-F-FOUR-TIME beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion. And I will still be the holder of the grandest prize of ’em all, the Triple B, baby! Now Richard, people seem to really like you around here, huh?” Fans cheer Starks on again, and MJF says “They talk about you like you’re some underutilized god of professional wrestling. And trust me, you are very talented, you really are. But you wanna know the truth, bud? Here’s the truth, Absolute.” Fans tell MJF to STFU but he just shrugs that off.
MJF says the truth is that in comparison to MJF, Starks is the Absolute drizzling sh*t! Or should MJF say, “You’re a roody poo candy ass!” After all, Starks stole literally everything else from that guy. But no offense, Richard, you’re just “a Dollar Store Dwayne.” So MJF will call Starks “The Pebble.” So here’s what happens next week in the main event of Dynamite, little Pebble. Fans chant for the “PEBBLE~! PEBBLE~!” MJF says he’s gonna put The Pebble in his pocket, hop in his brand new Porsche, because unlike all the “simple-minded humanoids” of Austin, MJF is rich. MJF will drive Pebble to the nearest body of water, take him out of his pocket, and skip “your scrawny little pigeon-toed ass all the way back to Billy Corgan’s NWA so you can wrestle on YouTube where you belong!”
Fans boo but Starks just smirks. MJF says “Facts don’t care about your feelings, Texas!” But MJF doesn’t care that Starks is Absolute, because MJF is a Generational Talent, and his Reign of Terror has only just begun. MJF soaks up the heat and then Starks pushes right past him to get a mic of his own. Fans cheer on Starks but MJF tells them all to shut up. Starks tells “Maxi Pad”, which fans now chant at MJF, that he should’ve expected a fifth-rate Roddy Piper to come out here and try to steal the spotlight. Oh~, he trashed the city! OH~! He trashed the fans! How much more shtick does MJF got? Cuz the low hanging fruit is running dry!
Starks says every week, MJF walks out here smelling like paint thinner and ass, having spray tanned his eczema to where if he took his shirt off, his back would look like he laid on an ant colony for seven hours. MJF has his crappy shoes, pants that are never ironed, a shirt that is too small, that stupid scarf, and that even dumber haircut, and he acts like he’s better than Starks?! Give us a break!! Fans are fired up hearing that! “Everything about you screams, ‘Cheap.’ The cheap suits, the cheap shoes, the cheap heat. Oh my God, and you are our new AEW Champion, huh? Well here’s the thing. With that AEW Championship comes a big responsibility that you know nothing about!
“The difference between you and me is that when these people got behind me, I gave them a reason to keep going. When they put faith in you, you let them down. When Regal put faith in you, you let him down. But brother, when it comes to Ricky, I delivery on time, every time, every night, every week, every month! And you can take your little ass to Greece for three months because oh~, you didn’t get paid enough! Oh~, you got out politicked by somebody smarter than you! But the fact remains is that I’ve been here, busting my ass. You wanna talk responsibility? Let’s talk about the fact that you avoid responsibility! You avoid any type of pressure.
“I show up to sign meet ‘n’ greets, where you, you don’t care! You just blow it off because hey! Everybody hates Max, so he has nothing to lose, right? Yeah, well, guess what, buddy? There comes a lot of responsibility when it comes to people actually liking you. And beside your nose being a lot darker than the rest of your body, me on the other hand, I live with dignity, I live with respect. You know nothing about that! When I lived in my car in South Austin, guess what I was doing? I was grinding! I knew the responsibility of taking care of myself! When it comes to that woman right there, it’s MY responsibility to get her a car, to get her a house.
“And you think because you paid people, because you kissed ass, that Maxwell ‘I’m better than you,’ you can get whatever you want? Please, gimme a break.” Fans are all fired up! Starks tells MJF that next week is a BIG deal. Starks is putting up and shutting MJF up for once in his miserable, narcissistic, punk-ass little life! MJF doesn’t deserve the title but Starks does! Wrestling on YouTube? Guess what? Been there, done that, busted his ass to get here! He never needed a name to make it here, and he doesn’t need one to beat MJF’s ass! He is Ricky Starks, he is stand ten toes down right here.
Next week, Starks smacks that mole of MJF’s neck, stomps a new hole right into MJF, and then he takes that title! Fans are thunderous for Starks as he says he’s doing MJF a favor he’s never had done in his life: Starks takes the responsibility off this “little boy’s” plate. MJF LOW BLOWS Starks! Fans boo as MJF takes off the belt, the scarf, and brings out the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF puts the ring on, takes aim, and fans shout “F YOU MAX!” But Starks dodges to SPEAR!! Fans are THUNDEROUS as MJF falls out of his shoes and then falls out of the ring! Starks holds up the world title, will he be holding that and the Dynamite Diamond Ring at the end of Winter is Coming?
Darby Allin speaks.
“May 12th, 2021 was when I lost the TNT Championship. From that time ’til now, I feel like a lot of people have all said to me, ‘Darby Allin is being slept on. Darby Allin is forgotten about.’ Well it’s up to me to wake everyone up, and I’m gonna win that TNT Championship. I said that this crowd chants one thing, ‘Joe is gonna kill~ you.’ Well Joe, you’re gonna have to bury me with that TNT Championship, because I am not leaving Austin, Texas without it.”
Samoa Joe responds.
“Darby Allin, the curious little dead boy. I know exactly what you see when you look at me. You see a crucible that you wanna put yourself through. You see the violence that I inflict and you say to yourself, ‘That is a trial I can endure.’ Well, Darby, tonight you’re gonna learn that curiosity has a price that is about to get real expensive.” Will the Relentless Underdog put it all on the line just to get back that title? Or will he fail to dethrone the King of Pro-Wrestling Television?
Jon Moxley speaks.
“You think last week got a little outta hand? I don’t. In fact, I’m starting to really, really like The Cowboy, Hangman. Because he fell off his horse, dusted himself off, and got right back in the saddle, and he did his talking with his fists. There’s not enough of that around here. There’s too much talking. This is All Elite Wrestling, not All Elite Talking. There is no Blackpool Microphone Club. This is COMBAT! This is the sport of kings! Tonight, myself, Wheeler, Claudio, this Weekend at Final Battle, this Friday night on Rampage, we bring back 100 proof, in-your-face, ass-kicking wrestling! Jericho Appreciation Society. I’m so over the Jericho Appreciation Society.
“I’m gonna be out there tonight, just to make sure there’s no sports entertainment shenanigans. And this weekend, we put the JAS in our rearview mirror for good! Hangman Page, you want another piece? You know where to find me.” The Maniac heads out, but will he be able to focus on the JAS with the Cowboy coming for him?
AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS Darby Allin!
#TwoBeltJoe has been intimidating and brutal even when he’s had no belts. How much more vicious will he become in order to keep his throne as King of TV?

Backstage interview with Kip Sabian and Orange Cassidy.
Tony Schiavone says there is a No Physicality Agreement in place as these two are here to talk. What is on Cassidy’s mind? Cassidy doesn’t know what Kip is doing, but he doesn’t need to do this. If he wants a title shot, just ask. Kip says, “How convenient, my sweet little Clementine. You wait until an unprovoked attack by Dustin Rhodes. I’m hurt. You just don’t want me at my best.” Cassidy says if Kip isn’t gonna fight this Friday on Rampage, then find someone who can. Kip ponders the idea, and heads out. Cassidy asks Schiavone if that’s a yes. Seems so. Then who will crazy Kip find as a Superbad proxy to take on the All-Atlantic Champion?
Chris Jericho speaks.
“Initially, what started out as a deliberate desecration of the legacy of ROH has now led me to become the greatest ROH Champion of all time. Oh, the irony. Claudio, you don’t have the belief that you can beat me when it counts and become the ROH World Champion once again. Isn’t that true? That is why I’m gonna beat you at Final Battle, and it is why you’re gonna have to join the Jericho Appreciation Society. But Claudio, I am telling you this right now, it is going to be the best thing for you. I am looking so forward to taking you under my wing, and most importantly, I am looking so forward to beating you at Final Battle. I’ll see you then, Claudio. All Honor The Ocho.”

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, by pinfall
Fans fire up and Moxley joins his brothers in the club to celebrate! Tony Schiavone joins them all to interview them. He knows they just got a big win ahead of a big night on Saturday, but they have to talk about what happened at Full Gear. Here is an interview Schiavone did with William Regal a few weeks back that might explain some things.
The footage plays and Schiavone talks with his “long time friend,” Regal. Regal says it will be 30 years in January. Full Gear was unbelievable, but Schiavone wanted to know about how all that transpired. Regal told Schiavone before that “people are only going to see this if something bad happens to me. And when you’re somebody like me, and spent your life being as horrible as I have, you’re always expecting something bad to happen.” Schiavone says Regal is the Villain of Villains. Well, Regal took great exception to what MJF did to Schiavone. And MJF seems to be made about emails and this and that, so Regal just gave MJF what he wanted.
MJF is world champion now. But do you know that saying, “Be careful what you wish for?” Because now, everyone in the company will be chasing MJF. Regal realized a few months ago that the three veteran members of the Blackpool Combat Club don’t need Regal around anymore. He’s “surplus to requirements.” But he knew they wouldn’t let him go, either. But he needed to show them why they don’t need him, and why they can teach Wheeler Yuta how to become the greatest professional wrestler in the world, because they’ve all got that capability. “But you have to lead by example.”
So hopefully, and Regal knows he will, because Moxley is a very calculating man, Moxley will understand this. “The reason I did what I did, and to lead by example, was to teach you the final thing that I could ever teach you. Always stay one step ahead, and make sure you always keep eyes in the back of your head. I’m Blackpool Combat Club ’til the day I die. Fellas, it’s been emotional.” Lord William Regal’s message ends, and Schiavone says that was two weeks ago, before what MJF did. He knows they’re all a bit speechless, but does anyone have a comment?
Moxley takes the mic to say, “All I know is one thing for sure. The three men in this ring live and breathe for the sport of professional wrestling! You can call us whatever you want, but December 10th, ROH Final Battle, this war with the Jericho Appreciation Society is OVER! These men make a statement. This Friday night on Rampage, I make a statement! I’m gonna challenge any wrestler in the world to come right here in this ring and find out just where you stand on the food chain. This Friday on Rampage, I make a statement! At Final Battle, they make a statement! Pro-wrestling is about to make a serious statement!”
The fans fire up hearing that from Moxley, but who will step up to his Open Challenge? And can Claudio and Yuta both take back the ROH titles to restore that honor to those championships?
The House of Black speak.
Malakai says, “This company has allowed itself to be corrupted. Corrupted by people that point fingers at others while still holding the shovel in their hands that they used to dig the graves for others. And now, it is sick and it is dying. And perhaps it is time for myself and the House to… put down this corruption. Ms. Hart, what is the crime?” Julia steps out from the shadows to say, “The crime is treason.” Malakai asks “Mr. Matthews, what is the verdict?” Buddy walks out from the shadows to say, “Verdict: War.” “And Mr. King, what is the sentence?” Brody walks out to say, “It as if you throw a side of beef to a pack of wild dogs. We will tear the meat from the bone. The sentence is extermination.”
Malakai says it has been decided. “To anyone that has an issue with what we have done over the past two weeks, or anything that’s been said here, well next week Wednesday, come one, come all.” The House of Black drifts into the shadows, who will be the first to be torn apart?
AEW returns with Jamie Hayter’s sit-down interview.
Tony Schiavone sits with the undisputed AEW Women’s World Champion, and he notes that last week, she asked the question, “Why not a sit-down interview with me?” Well, here we are, and the floor is hers. Hayter says Saraya got a sit-down, cool. Toni Storm got one, alright. But not with Hayter? That baffles her. So no, Schiavone, you ask her something. What does he wanna know? Well, Schiavone notes the AEW Women’s Division has been blossoming. Great competitors are showing up, and this week on Rampage, we will see Hikaru Shida VS The Bunny for Shida’s Regina di Wave Championship. What are Hayter’s thoughts on the division?
Hayter says it is getting “interesting.” But unfortunately for everyone else, Hayter is on top now. And everyone is trying to grind their way to the top to get her title. She will do her duty as champion to be both reigning and defending. Hayter will have a very, very close look at that Regina de Wave title match on Rampage. “Thing is, it doesn’t really hold a candle to the AEW Women’s World Championship, does it?” Schiavone says nothing does, and Hayter agrees. This is AEW. But Hayter will “give one of those girls the opportunity of a lifetime. Whoever wins that match, they get to wrestle me for the AEW Women’s World Championship, if they dare.”
Schiavone says Hayter’s going to be a fighting champion and she says that’s right. She is a fighting champion, “and a bloody good one at that.” Who will be the Regina di Wave Champion after Rampage? And will they accept Hayter’s challenge to them?
Six Woman Tag: Jade Cargill & The Baddies VS Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Kiera Hogan!

Backstage interview with Saraya.
Tony Schiavone is with The Revolution on a very festive set. Schiavone congratulates Saraya on her return to action and the win, and she thanks him for that. Saraya is actually surprised Britt isn’t- Oh, wait, here she is. Britt says no one needs to worry now. And Britt also congratulates Saraya on “the biggest win” of her entire career. It will never happen again. Also, Britt was thinking about something Saraya mentioned to her. Something about everything being handed to her on a silver platter. But Saraya came to AEW, and her first match was a PPV match against “the biggest star in the Women’s Division.”
So here’s one more thing handed to Saraya: Tickets to the Kia Forum, for the January 11th edition of Dynamite. Saraya can be front row and watch Britt be the star that she is, or maybe she can step in the ring again. Saraya tells “Baby girl,” she would love to beat Britt again. Of course! Round two! Uh, no, Britt didn’t say it’d be against her. Saraya forgot that Britt has the AEW Women’s World Champion, Jamie Hayter, with her at all times. Except right now. But it will be a tag match, Britt & Hayter VS Saraya and whoever Saraya can find to tag with her. But good luck, Saraya will never beat Britt & Hayter.
Britt heads out and Saraya asks Schiavone if he wants to get in the ring. Britt brings Schiavone with her so Saraya accepts that she’ll have to find someone. She has a little over a month, who will The Revolution invite to her house?

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)
FTR is shocked! Caster & Bowens win by the skin of their teeth, but all it takes is a moment! But to show respect to Cash & Dax, they offer up the scissor fingers. FTR join in on a HUGE SCISSORING! But then from the back, the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are sarcastically clapping. Austin tells FTR, “So close! Legacy, bye-bye. And Colten, the fans thought we would get involved? Haha, no. You guys are TRASH!” Colten says, “But Austin, they’ve had a pretty good year. And we don’t want it to end yet. So we got you guys some Christmas presents.”
Austin & Colten bring out a couple stockings, and Austin reads the card. “Oh, it looks like it’s written in blood. It’s from… DEM BOYS! The Briscoe Bros! Saturday, Final Battle!” But wait, there’s more! In the stockings, Austin & Colten bring out DOG COLLARS!! The Briscoes want a Double Dog Collar Tag Team Match! “Merry Christmas, b*tch!!” Jay & Mark Briscoe threw out the challenge, and FTR are all for it! But will the three-belt champions soon lose one of those in the most brutal way possible?
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (12/6/22)
Atlantic City gets Dark!
Anyone feeling luck in the Dark?
With AEW Dynamite tomorrow and ROH Final Battle this weekend, Dark brings out Dalton Castle & The Boys! Will the ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions find worthy opponents in time for December 10th?
- Six Man Tag: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Justin Corino, Jaden Valo & Defarge; Castle & The Boys win.
- Leva Bates VS Abadon; Abadon wins.
- Brian Cage VS Leon Ruffin; Cage wins.
- Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS The Brick City Boyz; Lethal & Singh win.
- Athena VS B3CCA; Athena wins.
- Trent Beretta w/ Chuck Taylor VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Trent wins.
A shorter card here, and from way back a month ago when AEW was in Atlantic City ahead of Full Gear. Dalton Castle & The Boys are in action on this episode because per last night’s Elevation, they more or less called out The Embassy. Castle & The Boys VS Cage & The Gates of Agony probably ends up a Final Battle preshow match, and I feel like that would/should be the time The Embassy takes those titles. Castle & The Boys have been great ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions, but The Embassy is going to look like a joke if they can’t get a pin off one of the Boys.
