AEW looks closer at The Inner Circle VS The Men of the Year & American Top Team.

Scorpio Sky says, “Dan understands that men roll with men. That’s why he runs with fighters like Junior Dos Santos, like Jorge Masvidal, like Andrei Arlovski.” Excalibur says Men of the Year were already a hot running tag team in AEW, and knows both Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page have fight sport training outside of pro-wrestling. Them teaming with American Top Team is huge. It takes their already great technique and sharpens it more. Tony Schiavone says that when it comes to Lambert and American Top Team having a place in AEW, “off the cuff,” the answer is no. Excalibur says Lambert was a guest invited by Tony Khan, but Lambert clearly used that to run AEW down.

Lambert was given an inch and has taken a mile, so it is rewarding for Chris Jericho to thus far put Lambert in his place verbally. But then American Top Team has run roughshod physically on The Inner Circle. Junior Dos Santos is truly a bad man, he spells trouble for the Inner Circle. A former UFC Heavyweight Champion, the man with the longest winning streak in that division, and tied for second most knockouts. Junior Dos Santos is a beast, having knocked out some of the best in all of MMA. People have asked if Junior Dos Santos is ready for pro-wrestling, but Junior Dos Santos asks if pro-wrestling is ready for him! He’s the scariest man in the world!

Hager, Jericho and Sammy are walking in as fan favorites, but in American Top Team’s home turf. Jorge Masvidal is one of the toughest men in all MMA, defeating Nate Diaz for the BMF Championship. He has the fastest knock out ever with that flying knee. Jorge is a bad, bad dude, so for him to be in the corner of the Men of the Year, that is something the Inner Circle has to worry about. Masvidal is already taking credit as the man who “killed” Jericho. He’ll bring his whole avenue to AEW’s face. He’ll domesticate the savages. Schiavone says just Masvidal’s presence means a lot. It changes the dynamic. All the things Lambert could do, to bring in Jorge is the crowning achievement.

This is going to be a fight in enemy territory, against a team as good as Scorpio & Ethan, that is too much for The Inner Circle. Lambert himself says that after not getting the job done in New York with Dynamite Grand Slam, Jericho & Hager are adding “that little pipsqueak,” Sammy Guevara to this, against Men of the Year and Junior. This might be the one time Lambert’s been to an AEW event where the fans weren’t the dumbest people. But will the odds stacked against them only make the Inner Circle more dangerous?

 

Buy-In – Bobby Fish VS Lee Moriarty

The Infamous One may have lost his TNT Championship debut, but he’s ready to climb up from square one! Will he make the Ace of Space fold here in the Buy-In?

The bell rings and fans rally up for Fish. Moriarty keeps cool as he and Fish circle. They approach, feel things out with hands and kicks, but Fish catches a leg! Fish shoots in, Moriarty facelocks to block, but Fish gets around. Moriarty wrenches, Fish knees low and throws a forearm. Fish KICKS Moriarty off his feet, but Moriarty rolls to hook a leg! He trips Fish, has the toehold, but Fish pulls on an ear. The ref reprimands, Moriarty has the ankle but Fish rolls to trip Moriarty back. Fish has the heel hook, Moriarty moves around to get hammerlock to chinlock. Fish fights up, Moriarty wrenches to a wristlock, but Fish breaks free to fire off fast hands!

Moriarty goes to ropes, Fish brings him up but Moriarty wrenches to the wristlock. Fish slips through to wrench back, but Moriarty spins and spins to hammerlock and waistlock. Fish breaks free, backs Moriarty into buckles then elbows him back. Moriarty goes up and over then comes back to sweep the leg! And he PENALTY KICKS the arm!

That could’ve even been a knockout! Fish has his first win in AEW, will he turn this into even more? Will he be able to slay the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, tomorrow on Saturday Night Dynamite?

 

AEW looks closer at Bryan Danielson VS Minoru Suzuki.

When Bryan walked out on stage at All Out this year, Schiavone remembers saying, “God, I love pro-wrestling.” He can’t think of a better combination of a great wrestler, a great person and a bigger star than Bryan Danielson. “He is the epitome of what a pro-wrestler should be in and out of the ring.” Excalibur says Bryan has an insatiable thirst to watch, learning and understanding pro-wrestling. If you’ve talked to him for even five minutes, talking about a match he hasn’t seen or forgotten about, his eyes light up and he immediately goes to watch it. He scours the globe for wrestling. For Bryan to bring that knowledge, technique and passion to AEW, the true home of pro-wrestling today, that is great for everyone.

Since Bryan’s arrival here, he has turned a lot of heads. But he will have his toughest test tonight. He has crossed paths with Suzuki in NJPW, and now he has Suzuki here tonight and then Fish tomorrow on Dynamite. Bryan has made strides since arriving but this is going to be his toughest test. Can the American Dragon survive this gauntlet that is before him?

 

Buy-In – Bryan Danielson VS Minoru Suzuki!

This is a main event caliber match and it’s happening here on the BUY-IN! But will the King of Pancrase fail to slay the American Dragon here in the Miami heat? Or will Bryan learn just why Suzuki is the Meanest Man in the World?

Fans are already going nuts just seeing these two stare down. The bell rings and the two slowly circle as fans fire up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” The two feel things out, knuckle lock and fans already say “This is Awesome!” as the two have a test of strength.

Incredible! This was an instant classic, and was just on the Buy-In! What more does this EXTRA LARGE Rampage have in store?

 

EW takes a closer look at CM Punk VS Matt Sydal.

Schiavone says that when Punk arrived in AEW back in August, it changed everything for the company. “All the big stars in pro-wrestling have this well-worn term, an It Factor. CM Punk has that.” Excalibur says it is both easy and hard to quantify the CM Punk effect on AEW. Before even signing, the rumor alone sold out the United Center in Chicago. Punk is big time. He had seven years off, everyone wondered if he had rust. But in his three first matches, he’s just as sharp as he was seven years ago. Fans expect a Punk with a chip on his shoulder, but for the first time ever, we’re seeing a happy CM Punk. A CM Punk glad to be facing these younger stars and testing himself against the best.

Lio Rush has returned to AEW, having taken an interest in both Dante Martin and Matt Sydal. Lio has learned corporate finance and wields a lot of influence now. Lio wants Dante on his team, and he is watching Sydal. No one can deny Sydal’s success, going 21-9 and having taken it to some of the best. This is a “stress test” of sorts, and Lio lobbied to Tony Khan to give us Punk VS Sydal for Rampage. Seeing Punk get better in his comeback, he could struggle against Sydal, having one of the best records in AEW. But at the end, CM Punk might still be the Best in the World.

They’re not strangers to each other, either. Their first match was in IWA Mid-South Wrestling. Then they went to ROH, to WWE, and now are here in AEW together. Sydal isn’t doing this for ego or even the money, but to prove that Sydal is the best Junior Heavyweight in the world. Sydal’s stamina and ring experience might give him the edge here. Even with the titles he’s won around the world, defeating Punk will be the biggest thing in Sydal’s career. Punk is coming back just a week after his grueling match with Daniel Garcia, has he recovered enough in that time? The crowd gives Punk home field advantage no matter where he is, but Sydal has the support system to keep him going. Sydal feels he has finally become the better wrestler, and that is why he’ll win.

 

CM Punk VS Matt Sydal!

There’s no stopping this one, because it will be completely commercial free to open tonight’s Rampage main card! Will this match need all 30 minutes of its time limit to truly settle who is the Best in the World?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for “C M PUNK! C M PUNK!” as he and Sydal approach. They shake hands, circle and tie up.

Punk shoots in to get a leg and a takedown, then turns toehold into facelock.

Sydal and Punk circle and feel things out again as fans rally and duel. They knuckle lock, have a test of strength, and Punk powers Sydal back so he can roll and wrench the knuckle locks.

Mark Henry talks with our main eventers.

The World’s Strongest Man starts with American Top Team. This is Junior Dos Santos’ first pro-wrestling match, what are their thoughts? Dan Lambert says talking is what the “Inner Circle Jerks” do best. This may be JDS’s first pro-wrestling match but he’s been bashing brains in for years. He ain’t coming alone, he has the Men of the Year, Jorge Masvidal, and all of “ATT Country” backing them up. Then Jericho, your reactions? Yes, this is a huge night! JDS’s pro-wrestling debut, right here in AEW. Jericho remembers his first match. He was nervous, scared, didn’t know what he was doing but his family was so happy and proud for him.

So JDS’s grandma can bake him a cake in celebration, but the reunited Inner Circle is going to kick his ass! Men of the Year, “fat faced dips*it” Dan Lambert, and Masvidal are on the list, too. There is nobody crazier in AEW than Jericho and his Inner Circle! “See you tonight, BITCHES!” Then enough talk! Time for the main event! We will see this insane trios match, after the break!

 

Six Man Tag: The Inner Circle VS Junior Dos Santos & The Men of the Year w/ Dan Lambert & Jorge Masvidal!

Le Champion leads #RockHard Jake Hager and the TNT Champion, Sammy Guevara, into battle once more, but against perhaps their most dangerous opponents yet! Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky are one thing, but they’re up against a genuine heavy hitter in JDS. This Rampage has already been extra, how much wilder is it about to get to close out the night?

Lambert cuts off Justin Roberts to speak. “You send these idiots into the ring in our hometown? American Top Team has fought for this city for 25 years! You show us our respect! Put on our goddamn music and sing us into the ring right now!” Only American Top Team seems to cheer for American Top Team. Fans tell Lambert to STFU as the teams sort out. The Spanish God is ready, and he starts against Scorpio Sky. They circle, approach and Scorpio kicks low then fires off forearm after forearm! He DECKS Sammy, then brings him away from the Inner Circle corner to whip to ropes for a kitchen sink, that Sammy turns into a roll-up, TWO!

Sammy comes back, ducks and waistlocks to leap frog and elbow Scorpio way for a jumping back kick! Fans fire up as Sammy whips Scorpio to ropes to hurdle, back flip over and dropkick down! Sammy kips up smooth and takes a bow! Tag to Jericho, Le Sex Gods whip and CLOBBER Scorpio! Scorpio flounders to his corner, JDS tags in! Jericho ties up and throws hands with JDS but ends up in a corner! The ref backs JDS off, he runs back in but into BOOTS! Jericho goes up, JDS is up and he BOOTS Jericho out of the air!

Tag to Scorpio, JDS CHOPS Hager, then Scorpio brings Hager around for forearms. Hager blocks the whip to reverse it, Scorpio kicks back but Hager CLOBBERS him!

Masvidal eggs Jericho on, Ethan CLOBBERS Jericho from behind! All Ego stomps and rains down fists, then JDS helps keep the rest of the Inner Circle away. AEW goes picture in picture as Ethan puts Jericho back in the ring and Scorpio covers, TWO!

Scorpio keeps cool, drags Jericho back over and tags in Ethan. The Men of the Year mug Jericho, Ethan DECKS Jericho and then kicks him against the ropes. Ethan bumps Jericho off buckles, tags in Scorpio, and the Men of the Year mug Jericho again. The ref reprimands, JDS tags in and he joins in on the mugging with fast hands. The ref counts, JDS lets off just long enough, then he fires off more hands! Tag to Scorpio, he scrapes his soles off Jericho’s face, then he argues with the ref so Lambert can get a cheap shot in! Ethan mocks the fans and Scorpio covers, TWO! Scorpio tags Ethan, they drag Jericho around for some stomps, then Ethan stomps Jericho more.

Ethan drags Jericho up, whips him to ropes and kitchen sink knees, but Jericho turns that into the takedown! Ethan fights off the Walls and throws Jericho away! Ethan pushes Jericho down for ground ‘n’ pound, then he lets off to soak up the heat. Ethan shows off his smile, then he drags Jericho up, only for Jericho to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Ethan rakes Jericho’s eyes to back him down! Tag to Scorpio and he chokes Jericho on the ropes! The ref counts, Ethan lets off and Jericho sputters to a corner. Scorpio throws hands, puts Jericho up top and throws hands. Scorpio climbs up to join Jericho, but Jericho resists the superplex.

Jericho throws body shots then headbutts Scorpio down! Jericho adjusts, jumps and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Jericho gets up but Scorpio CLOBBERS him! Tag to Ethan, he digs his heel into Jericho’s neck, and AEW returns as the ref counts. Ethan lets off at 4, tags in JDS, and JDS drags Jericho up to scoop and carry around. JDS is showing off as he POWERSLAMS Jericho down! JDS enjoys the cheers and jeers before he covers, TWO!! Jericho survives but JDS puts Jericho in the corner. Tag to Ethan, he throws hands and kicks, but Jericho ducks the roundhouse to ENZIGURI! Fans fire up as both men crawl, hot tags to Scorpio and Sammy!

Hager and JDS brawl, JDS KNEES Hager out of the ring!

JDS goes after Hager, bumps him off the apron, but Sammy ASAI MOONSAULTS Ethan down! Fans are going nuts as JDS bounces Hager off the timekeeper’s table, then scoops him. Hager sips off and catches JDS, URENAGE through the table!! Both JDS and Hager are wiped out on one side, Sammy and Ethan are down on the other, and fans are losing their minds! Scorpio gets Jericho up, “This is Awesome!” as the two are brawling with forearms. Scorpio gets the edge, fires off more then runs, but into a kick! Scorpio blocks the Code Breaker to fireman’s carry, but Jericho slips out to trip him up! WALLS OF JERICHO!!

Scorpio endures but Paige VanZant jumps the rail! She distracts so Masvidal can FLYING KNEE STRIKE!! Scorpio covers, Men of the Year and JDS win!

Winners: Men of the Year & Junior Dos Santos, by pinfall

And then the rest of American Top Team jump in to mug Jericho while Paige vlogs it! Fans boo and call them “A**HOLES!” but Lambert and his team soak it all up. But wait! Here come Santana & Ortiz! The Inner Circle still had members left out of this, and they run off American Top Team while throwing hands on Men of the Year! Hager gets up and in, as does Sammy, and they all help Jericho. Is this war of AEW VS American Top Team far from over?


My Thoughts:

An awesome night for AEW Rampage, that Buy-In was good enough to be tonight’s televised content. Garrett VS Conti was a solid opener, and Conti is definitely going to be in that TBS Championship tournament. Ruby VS Bunny was also a really good match, and Ruby getting that quick win was great for keeping things going between the two. Ford also getting after Ruby is a sign they’ll all be in the tournament, and I bet Ruby gets her revenge by defeating Ford. Fish VS Moriarty was great stuff, Moriarty is definitely a diamond in the rough. No idea where Fish goes right now but he can definitely give us great matches just for the sake of having great matches.

Bryan VS Suzuki was probably the best singles match of the night, the real main event of the whole night. That was basically everything great about these two guys in under half an hour. Bryan is definitely going to be in the 2021 AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament. He might even win so that he gets to face the winner of Omega VS Hangman. Dark Order VS Super Kliq is going to be a great match, no matter which three Dark Order members they put up. Punk VS Sydal being commercial free was great stuff, but a bit of a bummer Punk buried Sydal’s finish. Yeah, it’s CM Punk but c’mon, the Lightning Spiral is a really good move.

The trios match main event was great stuff, JDS did a great job in there for this being his first match. Taking him out of the equation with a table spot was a good move, it prompted American Top Team cheating to turn things back around. Santana & Ortiz took a little long in making the save but I would love if we got something big for Full Gear with all five Inner Circle members and then whoever else from American Top Team. Something allowing for more brutality would at least make things reasonable in pro-wrestlers (and Hager) beating MMA fighters.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/9/22)

Best Friends get Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Whatever.

Before entering the AEW Trios Championship Tournament, Best Friends are in action, in separate matches! Will tonight’s Dark be Freshly Squeezed?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 8 Man Tag: Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Isaiah Broner, Brayden Lee, James Alexander & Sam Moore; Private Party, Butcher & Blade win.
  • Anna “Jay A.S.” w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Megan Meyers; Anna wins.
  • Best Friends w/ Danhausen VS Rohit Raju & Ren Jones; Best Friends win.
  • Evil Uno & Preston Vance VS Peter Avalon & JD Drake; Uno & Vance win.
  • Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Heather Reckless & Joseline Navarro; Shafir & Nyla win.
  • Kris Statlander VS Sierra; Statlander wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss, Zack Clayton & Xavier Walker; The Trustbusters win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Ruby Soho, Athena & Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb, Leva Bates & Emi Sakura; Soho, Athena & Shida win.
  • Orange Cassidy VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Cassidy wins.

QUICK NOTES

So it seems Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux & Slim J are a trio now under The Trustbusters name. Good to see Sonny Kiss back in action but Kiss, Clayton & Walker aren’t winning that one. And I’m still wondering if The Wingmen are really a thing with JD Drake also spending time with Anthony Henry as the Workhorsemen. For that matter, why wasn’t it Best Friends VS The Wingmen in a 3v3? Or are they going to use that as an easy win in the opening round of the AEW Trios Championship Tournament?

Columbus gets Elevated!

AEW Elevation Coverage

Elevation has CERO MIEDO!

Before AEW Dynamite: Quake by the Lake and their Tornado Tag match, the Lucha Brothers tune up against The Wingmen in a standard 2v2!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Ruby Soho & Skye Blue VS Megan Myers & Nikki Victory; Soho & Blue win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ Ari Daivari VS Casey Carrington; Boudreaux wins.
  • Athena VS Queen Aminata; Athena wins.
  • Kiera Hogan & Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Freya States & Alice Crowley; Kiera & Leila win.
  • John Silver & Alex Reynolds VS T.U.G Cooper & Lord Crewe; Silver & Reynolds win.
  • The Lucha Bros w/ Alex Abrahantes VS The Wingmen; The Lucha Bros win.

QUICK NOTES

One thing to note is that Parker Boudreaux has Ari Daivari in his corner. I wonder if the Trust Busters is becoming a trio, Parker joining Daivari and Slim J. Then in Kiera and Leila teaming up, this is the one time where “Can they coexist?” should be a thing since The Baddies still haven’t fully accepted Leila. And of course, the Lucha Brothers will beat The Wingmen to get momentum going into their Lucha Rules Tornado Tag with Rush & Andrade.
