Not only will they win at Full Gear! They’re going to make sure that LAMBERT gets to pin Jericho! And wait, that’s just Saturday. Tonight, they’ll get Lambert to TAP OUT Jericho! “Put him in the WALLS OF JERICHO!” Lambert is like a kid on Christmas as he turns Jericho over to put him in his own move! Scorpio makes Jericho tap it but Lambert shouts, “IT’S CALLED THE BOSTON CRAB!!” Ethan says this is the greatest collection of talent in ALL of All Elite Wrestling!

But here comes Christian Cage and Luchasaurus! Fish bails out and runs away, but what was this about? Did Fish just do Adam Cole’s dirty work?
AEW hears from Hangman Page and Kenny Omega.
Hangman starts. “Last year, I had to watch as my friends were crowned tag team champions and world champion. And I stood in the distance and watched.” Jim Ross says Hangman has had a lot of heartbreak and setbacks, and Excalibur adds that you can only fall short so many times before it breaks you. But Taz knows fans have been waiting for this one for a long time. Omega says he could never relate to Hangman, but this is why the fans like to latch onto Hangman. They see themselves more than Omega ever did. Hangman dreams of winning the most prestigious title in the world, and nothing would feel better. Omega doesn’t lose big matches. Hangman always loses big matches. The Cleaner says Hangman doesn’t stand a chance, but will the Cowboy prove him wrong?
The Super Kliq speaks.
Are they finally live? Alright! CACAW~! How good was it to see Jungle Boy get his ass whooped? So good! But speaking of, Cole wants to talk with the Bucks about him. Cole’s known this guy for a really long time, so let him introduce Bobby Fish. Well they don’t have to do that, the Bucks know Bobby, too. Hey, Fish may be the new guy here, but Matt Jackson will make it clear. “There is no dispute. It is the Era of the Elite. It is the Era of the Super Kliq.” But if a good friend like Cole vouches for someone, then they’re cool. And Cole has an idea: In two days time, Fish VS Jungle Boy, where he can do even more damage!
But do them a little favor. Leave just enough of JB left so Cole & The Bucks can finish the job. He can do that. Cole knew he could count on Fish. And that’s a wrap. Fish looks to go on a Rampage, but will Jungle Boy get some payback before going after the Super Kliq at Full Gear?
AEW takes a closer look at Punk VS Kingston.
Taz says Kingston is a “ruthless fighter.” He’s been bred to fight, he believes in the fight, and nothing has ever come easy for him. Excalibur says when CM Punk was a rising star, Eddie Kingston was just a trainee. Kingston was someone who would carry people’s bags. That isn’t to demean him, it’s just the pecking order. But as we heard on Rampage, both men vented about how they saw the other these last 15 years. Jim Ross likes Kingston’s motivation, and thinks Punk should skip the brawling, use the wrestling and get a 1-2-3 to get the hell outta there. Kingston’s already stated he wants to beat up Punk and sideline him for another seven years. This is happening, but who will survive?!
Wardlow VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Orange Cassidy & Chuck Taylor!
The Pinnacle’s juggernaut is going up against the Best Friends’, and now Chaos’, Decoder! Will brawn break brains and make him a Casualty of Wardlow? Or will Yuta break the seven match winning streak here in Indy?
The bell rings and Yuta rushes right at Wardlow to dropkick! But Wardlow stays up! Yuta dodges him, dropkicks but Wardlow deflects it. Wardlow waistlocks, Yuta throws elbow after elbow, then drops down to slide under and leap frog over, to then slide under again! Wardlow gets frustrated but he turns around into a dropkick! Yuta fires off forearms, Wardlow shoves him away, but Yuta goes up the corner, only to fall back into a shoulder! Yuta gets up but into a SPINEBUSTER! Wardlow seethes, drags him up and reels him in, to POWERBOMB him! But Wardlow doesn’t cover, fans want it “ONE MORE TIME!” and Wardlow gets Yuta back up for another POWERBOMB!
Wardlow paces around, fans still want “ONE MORE TIME!” so Wardlow drags Yuta up to get him up, for a third POWERBOMB! Then a roll, into a FOURTH POWERBOMB! Chuck and Cassidy can only watch as Wardlow looms over Yuta and brings him back up. Wardlow puts Yuta on the top rope, holds him up, thumbs DOWN! CASUALTY OF WAR!! Cover, Wardlow wins!
Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall
This is WARDLOW, and he is victorious. Chuck and Cassidy check on Yuta, and that’s when the HARDY FAMILY OFFICE attack! The Blade and Isiah Kassidy attack, not happy about their loss on Dark! Big Money Matt gets in the ring to join his henchmen- er, clients, and he has a chair! Hardy takes his time taking off his suit jacket and Isiah vlogs this. Hardy JAMS Cassidy with a chair, puts it around Cassidy’s head, and hits a FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!! Cassidy writhes, Hardy talks trash that he will be rid of him once and for all! Will Freshly Squeezed be able to get even with the Hardy Family Office? Will he even be able to breathe?
AEW returns and there’s bedlam backstage!
It seems referees, producers and other wrestlers have had to separate CM Punk and Eddie Kingston again! Kingston’s almost all the way out of the parking lot but then he makes a break for it before Joey Janela and Baron Black can block him! Rampage was only the spark, what happens when these two get to burn it down at Full Gear?
Lio Rush & Dante Martin VS Matt Sydal & Lee Moriarty!
The Man of the Hour says now is the time! He’s making his return to AEW action and he’s alongside his new protégé in Angel Dorado. But Dante’s old mentor has picked the Ace of Space to stand beside him now. Will #LBOLio see his investment continue to pay off? Or will #PeaceLove&ProWrestling power Sydal & Moriarty to a Dynamite victory?
The teams sort out, Moriarty starts against Dante and fans fire up as these two young starts circle. They approach, tie up, and Dante powers to a headlock. Moriarty pries out, wrenches and wristlocks, but Dante rolls and slips through to wristlock. Moriarty spins, fans sing for him as he has the cording hold then the top wristlock. Dante uses the ropes to jump and whip! Dante hurdles, Moriarty sweeps, covers, ONE! Sweep from Dante, cover, ONE! Dante kicks but Moriarty gets under. Moriarty tries a sunset flip from below, Dante stays up and sunset flips back! TWO, and Moriarty body scissor rolls to a sleeper, then a body scissor clutch! TWO!

Fans cheer “Both These Guys!” but they both stand down to tag in Lio and Sydal! Lio goes past Sydal to talk to Moriarty, but Sydal brings Lio around to say he was talking to Lio. Lio smirks and SLAPS Sydal. Sydal chases Lio, he redirects, redirects, jukes, but Moriarty CLUBS Lio into Sydal’s HAYMAKER and SOBAT!

Lio tells Dante that’s what he was talking about! The team-up pays off, will they soon be heading for tag title gold?
“Bryan. This isn’t personal. You’re everything to some, but you’re nothing to me. You’re just a body standing between a man and his wife. Tell me, Bryan. Do you know my God? Do you know if he’s blessing me, or messing with me? Is he willing to trade my bad neck for yours? Because I need to win this tournament. I need to put the world title over my shoulder and the world champion under my ground! All this will happen not because my God blessed me, but because he feared me. Just like you should. You say you come here to feel alive, but you gotta understand that you’re pushing a man that is holding a scythe. But this isn’t personal. You have to say good-bye to your wife, so I can say hello to mine.”

FTR’s “Angry Uncle” Dax may be one of the meanest men in AEW, but he’s calling out THE BASTARD! Will Pac get payback for the Lucha Brothers? Or will Dax the Ax cut Pac down and build momentum for the AEW World Tag Team Championship showdown?
If you’re wondering why Tully is ringside but not Cash Wheeler, it came down from Tony Khan that all other wrestlers would be barred from ringside!

Pac sighs, drops down, and runs in to UPPERCUT Dax! Then whip him corner to corner, and BOOT him again! And then back the other way, but Tully helps Dax dodge! Dax gets Pac for a BRAINBUSTER of his own! Cover, TWO!! Tully couldn’t tip the scales and Dax is furious! The ref reprimands the manager but Dax drags Pac up. Another suplex, but Pac slips out. Pac baits Dax into a SUPERKICK! Dax is in the drop zone again and fans fire up! Pac makes sure Dax is right where he wants him, goes back up top, but Dax trips him up! Dax turns Pac around, climbs up top, gets Pac up and hits a SUPER BACK SUPLEX! Both men are down again and fans are thunderous!
Dax writhes, a standing count begins, but Dax snarls and gets up at 5 of 10. Pac flounder sup as Dax throws off the armbands. Dax runs in, Pac gets under to GERMAN SUPLEX! Pac scowls, stalks Dax, waistlocks and dead lifts, but Dax elbows free! Dax runs, ducks the roundhouse and hits a LARIAT! Then he gets Pac up, REBOUND SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!?! Pac survives and infuriates Tully! Dax can’t believe it either but fans love “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for this one! Dax drags Pac up by his hair, Tully says one more time. Dax ROCKS Pac, stands him back up and ROCKS him again. And again, but Pac turns that to a backslide! TWO!! BRUTALIZER!! Pac has Dax caught, Dax verbally quits!!
Winner: Pac, by submission
Pac won’t let go, here comes Cash Wheeler! Cash mugs Pac, throws down fists, and Tully even holds Pac down. But then the lights go out?! And when the lights return, ANDRADE AND MALAKAI BLACK are here! They help mug Pac! But wait! Here comes THE LUCHA BROTHERS AND CODY RHODES! They’re all brawling with FTR, Malakai and Andrade! Indy is electric as The American Nightmare and Death Triangle clear the ring! Malakai boots but Cody boots back! Cody, Pac, Penta & Fenix stand tall! Will FTR lose out on become double champions? Will the Bastard and Cody get even with their respective enemies?
AEW takes a closer look at MJF VS Darby Allin.
Excalibur notes that “MJF doesn’t often speak the truth. But when he named the ‘Four Young Pillars of AEW…'” MJF says the Pillars are canon now. Excalibur says that those four–Sammy Guevara, Jungle Boy, Darby and MJF himself–are essentially homegrown stars and the next generation of world champions. JR says the fortune tellers, just like MJF. A great marketing slogan that goes beyond talking. Darby, in front of a car fire bonfire, says he’s seen MJF’s face before. The dumb scarf, the stupid smile… Tony Schiavone knows MJF sees no room at the top except for himself, and that is why he is trying to push Darby down.
Darby says guys like MJF think they can get to anyone. Darby says he can’t be broken mentally and he means that. MJF says Darby is just a wild hyena in the ring. Taz says Darby is a “violent thinker, but highly intelligent.” MJF says Darby is good at checkers, MJF plays chess. JR says Darby has heart and passion like no one else, but MJF says he has gotten so, so deeply into Darby’s mind that Darby won’t focus on anything but hurting MJF when he should be focused on beating MJF. But Darby says that’s where Max is wrong. Darby could wrestle circles around MJF. So go ahead, try to beat Darby with a headlock. Who will prove themselves the TOP name in this new generation?
After things came to blows once again, Cody Rhodes & PAC will team up to take on Malakai Black & Andrade El Idolo, AT FULL GEAR! Will revenge be oh so sweet for the American Nightmare and The Bastard?
AEW has The Dark Order and Super Kliq leave the arena.
In order to make sure the contract signing tonight doesn’t turn into a war, everyone from Evil Uno to Preston Vance to even The Elite’s cold spray lackey, Brandon Cutler, are being removed from the premises.
Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.
He notes the ringside ban on the two factions, because now is time to sign on the dotted line! First out, the challenger, Hangman Adam Page! Indy fires up for the Cowboy as he walks out to the ring. And of course, out next is the champion, Kenny Omega! Omega struts out in a maroon suit and tie and holds up #PrettyPlatinum as he goes to the ring. Schiavone says the contract is presented, we don’t really need to talk about it much, but this is the single biggest prize in AEW. First off, the challenger gets to sign first. Fans chant for “COWBOY SH*T” as Hangman looks it over. He picks up the pen, but then gets the mic.
“After all this time, I don’t know what there’s left to say. And I know that the sooner I sign this, the sooner I get to Full Gear and beat your ass for the world championship.” Fans cheer that and Hangman puts down his signature. Fans are still fired up as Omega gets his turn. Omega wants to sign but he gets the mic. “I wish I could share your excitement. I wish I could share the excitement and the enthusiasm of these, uh… Wonderful fans. But I gotta say, Hangman, I’m a little sad, actually.” They were friends, tag partners, and family in The Elite. See all of this? Everything here was meant for Hangman. And if it wasn’t for Hangman’s failures and insecurities…
Fans boo but Omega says if Hangman talks about cowboy spirit and all that, well Hangman said it best himself: You fall off the horse, you get right back up. But if only the cameras caught how it really was. “It was never you. It was always us that picked you up out of your sorrows, every single time, sat you back up on that horse, and sent you back out there to give these people what they thought they wanted, and that was Cowboy S*it.” And why did Omega do that? Why? Even after Hangman walked away when they invited him back. Call him crazy, but Omega saw a little bit of himself in Hangman. “How wrong I was. What a disappointment.”
Hangman says Omega talks a lot about Hangman choking, his failures, his insecurities. Maybe Omega’s right. But if Hangman remembers right, Omega once had another tag team partner that made Omega feel like he didn’t measure up, either. Ibushi… But Hangman sees Omega now, “The Best Bout Machine, the Wrestling God, the man who’s been AEW World Champion for almost a year now, and it might be fair to say you’ve surpassed him.” And over the past few years, Omega’s told Hangman a lot of lies. He said Hangman’s not good enough, that he couldn’t beat Omega and let him fall flat on his face.
But the biggest lie was last year’s Eliminator Tournament Finals. When Omega won, he knelt down and told Hangman, “Good job, Hanger. I’m proud of you.” Omega wasn’t proud, he was afraid of Hangman! He didn’t want Hangman to feel the pain of loss like Omega did before. Omega didn’t want to light a fire under Hangman’s ass to prove himself and redeem himself! He didn’t want Hangman to become what Omega’s become and what Hangman will become this Saturday when he beats Omega, and that is THE AEW World Champion! Omega tries to defend that Hangman has it wrong. Omega did that out of necessity.
Believe it or not, Omega cares about Hangman! He did it because he wanted to be the guy standing across the table from Hangman when Hangman realizes his potential. Whether they can be friends again or not, who knows? But one thing is for sure, Omega wants to shake Hangman’s hand one last time. “Let’s kill it at the Pay-Per-View, man to man.” Fans don’t trust this. But Hangman does shake Omega’s hand! Omega says, “Good job, Hangman. I’m proud of you.” Omega’s biting words rile Hangman up, but then a cameraman attacks Hangman?! Because that was DON CALLIS in disguise! What a horrible fake beard, too.
Omega says he’s sorry, but he did this because he loves Hangman. Again, more bold faced lies as Callis celebrates their little plot! Callis says the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to make the world forget he existed! For six weeks, Callis stayed away, hiding in his basement! Hangman is busted open from that camera shot! “Does this look like someone who is ready to win the world title, Kenny?!” Omega wipes some of Hangman’s blood onto the contract to sign his name! Omega makes us look at the bloody signature, and Callis shouts at Hangman that he asked for this! This is what Hangman wanted! But will Hangman get what he really wants: revenge AND the title?
Once again, AEW nails how to do a go-home. They had great promo vignettes for the big attraction singles matches, and I like that we even got a brief Punk-Kingston moment in the parking lot area. AEW just keeps making each next PPV huge, and this Full Gear could be massive. We got an awesome opener out of Bryan VS Rocky, and I love that NJPW/Chaos is willing to make the rest of the Best Friends faction part of their faction. Yuta got the crap kicked out of him by Wardlow, and I figured The HFO would attack to revive their rivalry. Maybe Rocky helps the Best Friends take on Hardy, Private Party, Blade & Butcher, with Trent making a heroic return to make it 5v5 in the first Stadium Stampede without The Inner Circle.
I should’ve figured Inner Circle would get jumped by Lambert and company, so that the math favors the Inner Circle in the 10 Man Street Fight. Inner Circle is definitely winning and Lambert is definitely taking the finish. This AEW Six Woman Tag was much better than NXT’s Six Woman Tag. Rebel still isn’t that polished but she knows her part to play and plays it perfectly, and the math of course favors Rosa in her coming match with Hayter in the TBS Championship tournament. But Conti standing tall means she loses at Full Gear, as expected. Again, Rosa has to be the one to dethrone Britt, and it could be at Revolution.
Caster had another great rap, Jungle Boy and Bowens had a great match, and I like that the math is a bit of a wash for JB with Fish going after him. I also like the subtle nod to the Undisputed Era. Fish could be Elite by proxy, but he probably puts JB over on Rampage so that JB stands tall, and Super Kliq wins at Full Gear. The tag match of Lio & Dante VS Sydal & Moriarty was AWESOME, definitely showing that Lio and Sydal can still do so much in the ring, and that Dante and Moriarty are definitely the future. I hope Darius Martin can return soon, that is a trio to watch, or even a story of Dante having to choose between new mentor or his brother.
Miro had another great promo, he and Danielson are going to have a killer tournament finals. Dax VS PAC was one hell of a main event match! That in itself could’ve been PPV worthy, and naturally, we got our set-up for Cody & Pac VS Andrade & Malakai. That is going to be really good, but I think it goes the Heels’ way since the Faces stood tall. Lucha Brothers VS FTR could go either way, but Cody could turn on Pac to start playing with the idea that he won’t turn but he’s actually a Heel. And depending on how Darby VS MJF goes, which could go either way, I wonder if Andrade and/or Malakai usurp the Pinnacle from MJF given how they’re all working together like this.
And what a great contract signing segment! Great promos from both Hangman and Omega to bring up the continuity of the past year, because who knew wrestling could do that?! I say before giving side eye to WWE and the old man in charge… And just as I had been wondering where Don Callis went, he shows up here and gets one over on Hangman. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, Hangman should’ve still had his shot at All Out, should’ve won at All Out in a nod back to the original All Out, but he’s definitely winning here at Full Gear to bring things full circle from last year. And while MJF calls himself, Darby, Sammy and Jungle Boy the Four Pillars, Hangman will be the man to carry AEW in this third year and through the TBS move.
My Score: 9.1/10

There’s a medical emergency backstage!

The ambulance drives away, and now Nick is loaded into a second! The Young Bucks were attacked before cameras were rolling, Don Callis calms Kenny Omega down, and Hangman rides with Nick.

Freshly Squeezed is still a champion, as he retained the now AEW International Championship in Canada. But now, a familiar foe is rearing his Superbad head once again.

AEW shares backstage footage from last week.
After having his “Re-Bar-Mitzvah” interrupted by Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, it was obvious Maxwell Jacob Friedman was mad. He curses up a storm, then says he is the world champion! But Darby Allin says the world title means much more than money and fame. It is him being him. And Jack Perry, for himself, his family, and everyone who supported him all this time, he is going to become champion on his own. Sammy says that the world title is his destiny! He said so since episode ONE of Dynamite that he is going to be world champion. But MJF says that’s not how it works! You don’t waltz up to the champ and call your shot, you EARN it!
MJF has beaten Darby, Sammy and JB once each in 1v1 competition in their AEW careers, and he tells them they have to become #1 contender. Good luck trying, because all three of them SUCK! Sammy says he’ll win as many matches as it takes to get that belt off MJF. JB says that you can check the record books. He’s already won more matches than any of them. Darby says he’s beaten Sammy and he’s beaten JB, so he will stop at nothing to make sure that MJF is no longer champion. Who of these three Young Pillars of AEW will be THE one that challenges MJF at Double or Nothing?
AEW takes a closer look at tonight’s main event dream match.
Excalibur narrates that, “In 2021, there was no one hotter in professional wrestling than Kenny Omega. Known as ‘The Belt Collector,’ Omega won championships around the world, including in Mexico, where he won the AAA Mega Championship. At the same time, El Hijo del Vikingo was quickly establishing himself as one of the premier luchadors in all of Mexico. A match was made for December 2021: Vikingo, Omega, for the first time ever for the AAA Mega Championship. Unfortunately, Omega’s injuries at Full Gear were so severe, they required surgery, keeping him out of action for nearly a year.
“Now, with Omega back at 100%, the dream match is on for tonight. Kenny Omega, El Hijo del Vikingo, live!” Who will come out as truly the best today?
AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Gunns VS Top Flight!
They may not be the Young Bucks, the Lucha Brothers or the Hardy Boyz, but Austin & Colten are the brother tag team reigning over AEW. But will they soon find out they are not nearly as good as they think they are? Or will the Gunns cause the Coldest Tag Team in the Game to melt down?
The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who is really the better brother duo!
The teams sort out, Austin starts against Dante, and Independence taunts the “ASS~ BOYS!” Austin tunes that out, knuckle locks with Dante, and then he CHOPS! Austin goes up and up, but then says no no no. Austin hops down, swings on Dante, but misses! Dante knuckle locks and CHOPS, then he goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS!

Fans fire up as Dante says they’re getting those belts. The “ASS~ BOYS!” regroup and Colten slides back in. Tag to Austin, he and Dante circle again, and Austin gets around to shove Dante to ropes. Dante BLASTS Colten before the cheap shot! Dante then goes up and over Austin, only for Austin to pull hair! The ref reprimands, but misses Colten HOTSHOT Dante down! Fans boo as Austin stomps and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Austin whips Dante out of the ring, then taunts Darius to distract the ref. Colten stomps away on Dante! Colten puts Dante in before anyone notices, and Austin bumps Dante off buckles. Tag to Colten, he stomps Dante, but lets off as the ref reprimands. Colten stomps some more, he and Austin taunt Independence and Darius, then Colten drags Dante up. Colten DECKS Dante, then mocks the fans. Colten ROCKS Dante, ROCKS him again, then suplexes. Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martin brothers, drags Dante over and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Austin, he stomps Dante now, then digs his boots in.
The ref reprimands but Austin mocks the fans rallying for Dante. Austin lets off and Colten CHOKES Dante! Colten lets off Dante before he gets caught, and Austin tags Colten in. Colten drags Dante up, whips him to ropes, and the Gunns body shot, knee lift and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martins again, drags Dante up and whips him to the corner. Colten runs in but Dante dodges the splash! Austin tags in and hurries to stop Dante. Austin shoves Dante down, but Dante fakes Austin out to go under! Austin still grabs a leg, tags Colten back in, and the Gunns double back suplex! But Dante lands on his feet!
Dynamite returns to single picture, Dante goes over Austin, over Colten, and tags in Darius! Darius rallies on the Gunns and fans fire up! Darius hits an atomic drop on Austin, then LARIATS Colten! Mule kick for Austin, and Darius whips him at Colten. Austin reverses but Darius uses that to UPPERCUT Colten! Austin runs back in, but is sent into Colten!

Wait, is that THE KINGDOM!? Mike Bennett & Matt Taven are mugging Darius over their ROH losses! But Dante FLIES out onto them! Direct hit and fans fire up! Dante hurries back up, springboards again, but Austin gets under!
Colten gets in, Dante runs into a 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, the Gunns win!
Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)
Fans boo that the Gunns win, but Darius is pissed at The Kingdom! Darius chases off Mike & Matt, will Top Flight get revenge in ROH? As for the Gunns, they hear FTR coming! Fans fire up again as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler step out on stage with mics in their hands! Colten gets a mic to have the FTR music stop. Colten says no one wants to hear that song and no one wants to see FTR. Fans boo because they disagree. FTR says they’re not here to fight. They’re here to talk business. Well, no one wants to hear you talk! The Gunns don’t like or respect FTR. And guess what? FTR are LOSERS! They lost three sets of belts, and lost to the Gunns!
There is nothing FTR can say or offer them to get a rematch. NOTHING! Nothing? So like, if they said they’ll never challenge the Gunns again for those titles should they lose- NO! Do you not hear what Austin is saying, “you hillbillies? NOTHING! There’s NOTHING! What do you have to offer?! NOTHING!!” Then if the Gunns wanna prove their first win wasn’t a fluke, should they win against FTR again, FTR will never tag together in AEW again. Oh, the break up? So heartbreaking! LOOK AT HIS FACE! NOTHING!! Okay, okay. Dax says if FTR can’t beat the Gunns to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, FTR will just quit AEW.
Fans boo, but it seems that got through to the Gunns. If the Gunns beat FTR again, FTR leaves AEW forever? Yes, that’s what Dax said. Well, in that case, deal! The Gunns and FTR shake on it, but then Gunns literally spin in FTR’s faces! The Gunns run for it, but the match is coming either way. Will the “ASS~ BOYS!” get their asses kicked? Or will they be the team that banishes FTR from AEW?
Backstage interview with Jade Cargill, Leila Grey & Mark Sterling.
Renee Paquette is with the AEW TBS Champion, her Last Baddie Standing and her legal representation. Renee says that Taya Valkyrie is All Elite now, and she has her eye on the TBS title. What is Jade’s reaction to that? “Renee, cut the sh*t. We had this Taya girl come in and interrupt my moment to answer an open challenge that was already closed, baby girl. And then, had the audacity to use my finisher. Mark, tie this up.” Sterling has a document, it is a Cease & Desist order. This will be sent to Taya Valkyrie, telling Taya that she is no longer allowed to use the chicken wing facebuster, which is also Jade’s move, as her finisher.
Leila says that she should deliver this document to Taya personally, this Saturday on Rampage. Because she has a few words of her own for Taya. So that’s an official challenge? Yes. Welcome to #ThatBitchShow. Will La Wera Loca have a jaded response to this frivolous lawsuit?
No Disqualifications: Hook VS Stokely Hathaway!
An injured arm turned into a suspension turned into a settlement turned into a high stakes bet that The Firm lost, and now it has resulted in this match. And though Ethan Page, Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy, Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey see Stokely off, they can’t stay per the stipulations of the bet. As the introduction says, “He’s not as large as the men he represents, he has the heart of a lion and the wisdom of an owl.” But will any of that help him defeat The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?
As Hook makes his entrance, Stokely grabs the mic to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa! I’ve got some breaking news! I spoke to Dr. Simpson (he means Sampson) earlier, and he said I am not medically cleared to compete. I know, I know. I wanted to so bad. And I would also, what a coinky-dink, announce that I am retiring.” What? Stokely thanks all 12 of his fands, God bless! Justin, here, doctor’s note. Make it official. Justin takes the note, and it reads, “He is SICK.” Justin says that with all due respect, that’s a receipt for Wingstop. The ref RIPS the receipt! And the bell rings! Fans fire up and Hook is ready, so Stokely bails!
Stokely runs around the ring, out to the crowd, but Hook pursues! Fans fire up as Hook chases Stokely down, drags him back, CLUBS him, then brings him over to KNEE and TOSS! Stokely ends up at ringside again and fans are thunderous! Hook stalks Stokely, Stokely runs in to UPPERCUT, but Stokely bounces off of Hook! Stokely scurries away, gets back up, and runs in, but into a leg capture! EL CAMINO to the floor! Fans fire up as Hook drags Stokely up, puts him in the ring, and then looks under the ring. Fans fire up more, because here comes a SPARE GUARD RAIL! Hook puts that in the ring while the Firm can only watch.
Hardy tries to calm the group down, Stokely can take care of himself with things getting “hardcore.” Ethan says no he can’t, they didn’t practice any of the hardcore stuff! Stokely bails out again but Hook puts the railing in a corner. Hook drags Stokely up but Stokely BLASTS Hook with the fire extinguisher! Fans boo but Stokely gets a chair! Stokely smacks the steps a couple times, he says, “I’m not a killer, but don’t push me! That’s Tupac.” Stokely hurries in, fans rally up, and Stokely swings, but Hook blocks! Hook BOOTS Stokely, then SMACKS him on the back! And again! And again! And again!
Hook throws the chair aside, Stokely is barely moving! But Hook drags Stokely up to EL CAMINO onto the railing! The railing BENDS! Hook drags Stokely off the railing, covers, but then pulls him up at TWO! Hook wants REDRUM!!! Stokely is OUT, Hook wins!
Winner: Hook, by submission
The FTW Champion could’ve ended it sooner, but he chose to teach Stokely a lesson: Do not get on Hook’s bad side. Hardy says Ethan must avenge Stokely! Ethan can beat Hook! Hardy is gonna get a match made right now! All Ego is ready, but will he be ready when they #SendHook?
Adam Cole is here!
Fans fire up as the Undisputed One heads to the ring. Naturally, everyone joins in on the “BOOM!” and “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” Cole gets the mic and says, “Wow. Hey, hey, I think I know the answer to this, but who’s ready for Storytime with Adam Cole, baybay?” Everyone cheers! Cole continues with, “Seven days. We are just seven days away from me making my in-ring return here in AEW. And listen, I know I’ve talked a ton about my struggles and what I went through, but as far as how I’m feeling right now? Guys, I feel freaking great. I have never been more ready, never been more prepared, to get back in this ring, doing what I love, and that is wrestle for AEW.”
Fans are fired up, and Cole knows everyone has questions. “The biggest one being: Who is my opponent going to be on March 29th?” Fans echo, “Who? Who? Who?” Cole starts to speak, but here comes Daniel Garcia! Fans boo as Red Death has the mic to say, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Who’s ready for Storytime with Daniel Garcia, baybay?” Garcia knows Cole’s been gone awhile, so here’s an update on a few things. Fans tell Garcia to STFU already but Garcia says since Cole’s been gone, Garcia’s become a real veteran in AEW. All the boys in the back respect him so much that he is a locker room leader!
Fans boo more but Garcia says as locker room leader, it is his duty to come out here to not only welcome Cole back, but to put him in his place, too. Garcia says Cole may not remember, but here’s an update on what Garcia’s been doing the last nine months while Cole was home, “playing stupid video games on Twitch.” Cole smirks but allows it. Brody King: beat him! Ricky Starks: beat him! Bryan Danielson: Garcia beat him, too. Garcia’s main-evented more AEW programming over the past year than anyone else on the roster! Garcia is the lifeblood that pumps through this company. And he’s to respect Cole? To welcome Cole back? Where’s Garcia’s warm welcome?
Where is Garcia’s respect when he’s been here, been doing this, and proved himself as one of the best pro-wrest- Oops. Freudian slip there? Garcia corrects himself, “Sports entertainers on the planet today!” That’s what Garcia is! So what makes Cole so special? “What makes me special? When they ring the freakin’ bell, that’s what makes me special! That’s what makes m e special.” Cole admits he likes Garcia. Garcia is really, really good. And some day, he could be leading the charge in AEW. The problem is the company he keeps.
“The Jericho Appreciation Society, they’ve done a great job of giving you this false sense of security. This overconfidence, which sometimes is good, and sometimes is bad. But let me remind you, even me not wrestling for nine months, I am still Adam Cole Baybay. I am a multi-time world champion. I have traveled the globe, fought and beat some of the very best! As a matter of fact, while I was sitting at home for nine months, I was wondering if I’d ever get the chance to wrestle again, hoping, praying, willing to do anything for a second chance. And looks like I found that second chance.”
Fans fire up and Cole says if Garcia is crazy enough to want the match, then dammit, he’s on! Adam Cole VS Daniel Garcia, first-time-ever, next week on Dynamite! But Cole will remind Garcia of something: “This is not just my return match; this is a statement. It’s a statement to the entire locker room that one of the best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet is BACK, baybay.” Fans are fired up for “ADAM COLE! ADAM COLE!” Cole hopes Garcia realizes what he’ sin for. Because Cole promises next week will be a great night. A great night for Cole, for the fans, but for Garcia… Not so much. “See you next week, Garcia. BOOM.”
Cole is ready, Garcia is ready, but will the Dragonslayer stay a great sports enner-tay-ners? Or will the pro-wrestler in him rise to the surface against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers alive today?
Alex Marvez is outside The Elite’s locker room.
Marvez can hear a conversation going on inside, and he steps inside. Callis and Omega are talking, and Callis wants Marvez to hold on. What is Omega’s concern here? Omega’s concern is that his best friends left in an ambulance! He should’ve gone with them! Callis says he sent Cutler and Nakazawa with them. Omega has a match tonight! Hear Callis out. He’s a glass half full kind of guy. Injuries happen, but hear him out. The Bucks going to the hospital might’ve been the best thing for Omega and Callis. It allows for focus! Omega is in a singles match, the God of Pro-Wrestling is back! “Those kids will be fine in a few months.”
Callis now has Marvez join in. “Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo is gonna blow the roof off! The God of Pro-Wrestling is BACK, and it starts tonight on Dynamite! Now get out.” Marvez throws this back to ringside, but is Callis only thinking of his benefit, not Kenny’s?
Jon Moxley w/ The Blackpool Combat Club VS Stu Grayson w/ The Dark Order!
The Maniac, along with Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, have torn into the Dark Order from Silver to Reynolds to Evil Uno. They did all that to anger Hangman Page, but they’ve also angered #PlayerTwo! Moxley may be #ForgedByCombat, but will he survive someone born and bred for combat?
The bell rings and Stu RAMS Moxley into a corner! Fans fire up as Stu fires off on Moxley but lets off as the ref counts. Moxley turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Moxley pie faces Stu, but Stu turns things around to CHOP back! Stu stalks Moxley to another corner, KNEES him and CLUBS him, then stalks him to a third corner. Moxley kicks low, ROCKS Stu with a forearm, then another, then digs his boots in. The ref counts, Moxley steps off at 4, then Moxley drags Stu up to headlock takeover. Stu keeps his shoulders up, the Dark Order coaches him up but Moxley gets a knuckle lock cover. TWO as Stu gets his left arm up.
Moxley pushes the hand down, covers, TWO as Stu gets the right arm up. Moxley pushes that arm down again, covers, ONE as Stu gets his left arm back up. Stu fights to his feet but Moxley kicks low. Moxley headlocks, Stu powers out but Moxley RAMS him! Moxley runs, but Stu RAMS him! Moxley runs in, clips Stu but is sent out of the ring. Stu hurries out after Moxley, Moxley throws a chair!

Cover, TWO!! Stu is still in this, but Moxley has the knuckle locks back. Dynamite returns to single picture as Moxley rains down the DRAGON STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Stu hangs tough again, but Moxley just taunts him.

But Stu fights up to his feet! Fans fire up but Stu is fading again!
But Stu is still on his feet, and he revives! BACKPACK CANNONBALL!! Both men crash into buckles and Stu is free! Fans are thunderous again and Moxley sputters back to his feet.

Moxley climbs, CLUBS away on Stu, then CLAWS Stu’s back. Moxley HEADBUTTS Stu, brings him up into underhooks! SUPER DEATH RIDER!! Cover, Moxley wins!!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall
The Dark Order hurry into the ring and Moxley backs off, there won’t be any extracurriculars here. But will the Dark Order ever get payback on the mean SOBs in the BCC?
Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.
Renee says she can feel the frustration coming off The Absolute. The back ‘n’ forth with him and Juice Robinson, where do they stand? You tell him! Starks is “sick and tired of talking back and forth. No action, all talk.” Starks doesn’t wanna stand around, take time off his vacation, just to say Juice, he doesn’t like that you attacked him from behind. That’s cool and all, but whatever! How about this, though? Saturday Night Rampage, Starks is done talking. If Juice wants to face him man to man, then he can find Starks on Rampage! If not, just stop! Starks is over it, he is so sick of it! This is the craziest thing he’s been a part of his whole life!
Starks is issuing the open challenge to Juice. If Juice accepts it or not, is a man or not, Starks doesn’t give a damn anymore. The Absolute will be waiting, but will the Booster oblige?
AEW presents an all-new episode of QTV!
QT Marshall says great job last week in their debut, keep the “credibility train” rolling. CHOO-CHOO~! He needs scoops! Harley Cameron says she actually has discovered a “hot new prospect.” Goes by the name of Rey Fenix. And actually, here’s some footage. Hobbs POUNCING Fenix into buckles int heir TNT title match, and the spinebuster, and the Town Business. Everyone has a laugh, and QT says, “Imagine being in the Lucha Brothers, and your own lucha brother doesn’t come out to help you.” Aaron Solo says there is definitely some miedo! Then he laughs while also puffing mouth spray…?
QT asks who the hecc is Alex Abrahantes? Harley says Alex should work on his “character development.” Speaking of, how about Solo stealing Wardlow’s identity and freezing all of his accounts? Oopsie~! Yeah, Wardlow’s gonna lose his house and car, too! And Solo hacked into some observer’s accounts, started this whole thing about hotels. HAHA! QT just got a call from Hobbs. This Saturday on Rampage, another Open Challenge for the TNT title! Can’t wait to see who is the next chapter in the Book of Hobbs. Well, wait no longer! PENTA wants payback for Fenix as he answers the call! Will Hobbs be the one with some fear?
Toni Storm w/ The Outcasts VS Skye Blue!
The Lightning From Down Under has been striking down “spoiled rookies” again and again, but in the Dark. Will she do so again in the spotlight of Dynamite? Or will Skye roll the Storm away?
The bell rings and Storm BLASTS Skye with a forearm! Then she stomps a mudhole into Skye in the corner! The ref counts, Storm lets off but she grins and soaks up the heat. Soho & Saraya mock Skye, then Storm bumps her off buckles., Skye elbows back, fires forearms in return, and the fans fire up! But Storm knees low! Storm whips Skye, Skye kicks back! Skye ROCKS Storm again and again, but Storm shoves her away. Skye comes back, spins Storm for a KNEE SMASH and a DROPKICK! Storm bails out, fans fire up and Skye goes to the apron! FLYING RANA! Fans fire up with Skye but Saraya is mad.
Skye puts Storm in the ring, climbs up the corner, but Storm ROCKS her! Skye falls to the apron, then Storm HIP ATTACKS Skye to the floor! Storm distracts the ref, allowing Soho & Saraya to stomp away on Skye! Fans boo but the Outcasts get away with it! Saraya says, “This is OUR house!” Storm goes out to fetch Skye, and RAMS her into the apron. Storm CHOPS Skye against the post, then bumps her off the other. Storm CHOPS Skye again! Saraya says do it again! Storm puts some stank on this one, but Skye ducks, so the chop hits POST! Saraya & Soho panic as Storm clutches her fingers! Skye then runs in, but Storm dodges so Soho gets DECKED!
Storm CLOBBERS Skye from behind while the ring count climbs. Storm refreshes the ring count, Saraya shouts at Skye, and Storm CHOPS Skye again. Storm stalks Skye around the way as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Storm drags Skye around to snap suplex her to the floor! Storm flexes, perhaps taunting Jamie Hayter wherever she’s watching this from, and then she goes back for Skye. Storm puts Skye in the ring, flexes more, then drags Skye up. Storm whips Skye to ropes, BOOTS her down, covers, ONE! Cover again, TWO! Another cover, TWO!! Skye is still in this but Storm clamps on with a full nelson. Storm leans on the hold, thrashes Skye around, but Skye endures. Skye fights up, but Storm throws her down by her hair! The ref reprimands but Storm just stalks Skye. Storm kicks Skye around, has her in the corner, and digs her boot in.
The ref counts, Storm stomps but lets off at 4. Storm drags Skye up to snap suplex! Storm grins then stalks Skye. Storm drags Skye up to snap suplex again! Storm flexes more, stalks Skye to another corner, then wrenches her hair to TOSS her across the way! The ref reprimands but Storm just wrenches hair and TOSSES Skye again! Dynamite returns to single picture as Storm soaks up the heat. But Skye shoves Storm down! And then TOSSES Storm by her hair! And again! Skye fires up, runs corner to corner, but Storm puts her on the apron. Skye ROUNDHOUSES! Skye climbs up, to CROSSBODY!
Fans fire up, Skye keeps moving, she ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl headscissor! Storm ends up on ropes, Skye runs to SHINING WIZARD! Snapmare and SUPER- NO, Storm blocks and spins Skye, but Skye BASEMENT ENZIGURIS! Cover, TWO!! Storm survives and Skye grows frustrated. Saraya & Soho are also frustrated, they rally for Storm but the fans rally for Skye. Saraya tells the fans to shut up! Skye runs, hops on, but Storm shrugs her off! Skye SUPERKICKS! Skye runs, into a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fists, then she snarls as she stands back up. Storm gets the legs, but Skye kicks her away!
Skye runs in, only for Storm to spin her around! Storm uses the ropes, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and fans fire up! Saraya is furious but the ref says the count was fair. Skye goes to a corner but Storm says kiss this. SWEET HIP- NO, Skye picks the ankle! Skye KNEES Storm, runs, avoids Soho’s swipe, and she hits CODE BLUE!! But Soho is still distracting the ref!! Skye would’ve had this if not for Soho! Skye gets in Soho’s face, swings at her, but Storm runs in! Skye sends Storm into Soho, rolls and bridges, TWO!!! Storm stands, into a BOOT! Skye full nelsons, Storm arm-drags free to SHOTGUN Skye down!
Saraya says Storm has this now! Storm says kiss this, and here comes SWEET HIP MUSIC!! GERMAN SUPLEX, and then STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!
Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall
The Outcasts with the assist, but now they bring out the spray paint! Fans boo as the Outcast scare off the ref, then surround Skye! But here comes Riho and Willow! Just like last week, Riho has the pipe!! Riho runs the Outcast off and warns them. The Outcasts leave for now, having gotten the win. Will Riho, Willow and Skye start thinking of sticking together from now on?
The AEW medical staff checks on Stu Grayson.
They’re working on his left arm, where did they feel it pop? But then Moxley sneaks up to say, “It’s just business.” And he puts on the SLEEPER!! Claudio & Yuta TOSS the medics aside! Stu is all alone as Moxley chokes him out, then SMACKS him off a trunk! The BCC give Stu the icepack back then leave, what will Hangman & the Dark Order have to say about this?
Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo!
The AAA Mega Championship match that was meant to happen in December of 2021 was denied because of injury and misfortune. But now we are all fortunate enough to have this match happen here! “HE was the longest reigning Mega Champion at 765 days, 292 days more than El Hijo del Vikingo. HE never lost that title. HE is undefeated in singles matches in Mexico and also on Dynamite. Many people say HE is also undefeated at life. HE is often complimented on his accomplishments, matches, chiseled physique and hair, yet he is personally proud of his win-loss record in Independence, Missouri, which is better than his record of 1-1 in… NOOOORTH CAROLINA~!
“He arrives tonight after his 833 mile journey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Weighing 224 pounds, HE is…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The fans go wild for the Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and Don Callis’ God of Pro-Wrestling, but will Omega prove he is better than the Mega Champion?
But as Omega makes his way down the ramp, El Hijo del Vikingo DIVES onto him! Fans fire up, EHDV throws off his cape, then he runs again, to FLY! Direct hit again and Independence is thunderous! EHDV puts Omega in the ring, springboards and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Omega ends up in a corner, EHDV runs in to clothesline! EHDV fires off forearms, but Omega turns it around to fire them back! The ref wants them to let off, this isn’t a match yet! Omega rains down fists, lets off, and now the bell rings! Fans are thunderous as Omega stomps EHDV down. Omega drags EHDV up, whips him corner to corner, but EHDV slips out to the apron!
Omega hits buckles, then EHDV ENZIGURIS! And GAMANGIRIS! EHDV climbs up, and jumps to IMPOLODER DRAGONRANA! Omega goes flying, then staggers up into the SCREW HIGH KICK! Omega’s on the ropes, EHDV runs to DOUBLE KNEE him through the ropes! Omega falls to the floor, EHDV refreshes the count, and fans say “This is Awesome!” EHDV SHOOTING STAR PRESSES to the floor! A bit double-edged, but fans lose their minds! Callis protests, the ring count climbs, but EHDV puts Omega in the ring. EHDV aims, slingshots and then springboards to 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!!
Omega goes to a corner, EHDV runs in to GAMANGIRI again! Omega staggers away, EHDV pursues but Omega CHOPS! And CHOPS again! EHDV falls over but Omega stalks him to a corner. Omega brings EHDV up to JAB! And JAB! fans rally and duel, Omega drags EHDV up to whip. Omega scoops EHDV for a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega drags EHDV back up fast, to fisherman BUSTER! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough and Omega is frustrated but the fans are loving this. Omega stalks EHDV to the ropes, scrapes him to the apron, and then Omega goes out to follow EHDV.
Omega CLUBS EHDV, and whips him hard into barriers! EHDV falls in a heap, but Omega goes looking under the ring. Omega brings out a TABLE! Fans fire up for that, and Omega stands that table up near the ring. The ref reprimands, this isn’t a Tables match or anything like that. But fans chant, “WE WANT TABLES!” as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Omega drags EHDV up, puts him in the ring, and Omega storms up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega clamps on with an armlock and chinbar, but he also fishhooks EHDV’s face! The ref reprimands, Omega lets off, but then pulls on EHDV’s hair! The ref counts but Omega lets off at 4. Omega looms over EHDV, stomps him, stomps him more, then springboard stomps! Omega drags EHDV around to KNEE him in the side! And again! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough but Omega just snarls. Omega drags EHDV up to CHOP him back down! Omega drags EHDV up again to CLUB him back down!
Omega drags EHDV up at the ropes, ROCKS him with a right hand, then ROCKS him again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands and counts, Omega lets off, but then Omega CHOKES EHDV with his foot! Dynamite returns, the fans boo and the ref counts, but Omega lets off at 4 again. Omega ROCKS EHDV again, JABS him, then whips him to ropes. EHDV ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! Omega goes to the apron, fans fire up as EHDV pursues! EHDV ROCKS Omega, but Omega tomahawk chops back! EHDV CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS! EHDV CHOPS back, so Omega BOOTS him! Omega runs in, goes up, and he MONKEY FLIPS EHDV on the apron!
EHDV falls to the floor while fans lose minds over how tight that one was. Omega drags EHDV up to the apron, and he grins as he looks at the table he set up.

They hope these two “FIGHT FOREVER!” but it has to end somehow! EHDV throws a forearm, a SOBAT, and then he runs to springboard, into a POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB! Roll through and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!!!
Omega is furious as EHDV survives! Omega slashes his throat, drags EHDV up, and he full nelsons for a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega snarls, he puts EHDV on the ropes and takes aim. BANG and V-TRIGGER!! But that’s not the end of it! Omega drags EHDV up, deadweight as he is, and Electric Chair Lifts! But EHDV throws down fists! EHDV hops down, UPPERCUTS, then goes up and up to FLYING POISON-RANA!!! Omega tumbles to the apron, and EHDV crawls over to push him onto the table! EHDV builds speed while fans fire up, and he goes up to ESCALARA 630 SENTON through the table!!!!
Independence is volcanic for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Callis is freaking out! Both men are down in the wreckage as the ring count starts. EHDV crawls away at 3 of 10, Omega finally stirs at 4. Both men drag themselves up at 6, stand at “OCHO!” And both men slide in at 9! EHDV covers, TWO!!! Omega is still in this and EHDV is beside himself!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall
This was a dream match the moment it was made, but this became an all-time classic by the end! Tony Schiavone joins Callis and Omega in the ring to say this was an incredible match. Omega is back in singles competition, and that was one for the ages! Omega thanks Schiavone for that. The more time goes by, the more he wonders if he can still do this kind of stuff for the fans. Wait, wait! THE BCC JUMPS OMEGA!! Moxley, Claudio & Yuta all mug Omega, and fans boo while Callis can only shout at the ref to stop this! The BCC stand Omega up so they can throw body shots and haymakers!
Fans continue to boo, but wait! Sirens? An ambulance has returned? For who? Wait, HANGMAN is driving it!! The Cowboy has a 2×4, with nails in it! Fans are going nuts for “COWBOY SH*T!” while the BCC stomp away on Omega. But here comes Hangman, wood in hand! The BCC decide to bail! Callis checks on Omega but the damage has been done. Hangman wants Moxley to get his ass back in here, but he stays back. Callis tries to calm Hangman down, but he almost gets 2×4 to the face! Callis keeps pulling at Hangman’s arm to hold him back, but Hangman shakes free and Callis falls right down! Omega comes to, and misunderstands why Callis is down!
Callis blames Hangman but Hangman says he didn’t do anything to Don! Omega and Hangman argue, Callis cowers behind Omega, and Omega takes Callis’ side. Fans boo, but is this just Callis keeping Omega all to himself?
A great episode of Dynamite, but it already feels like they’re gonna keep things going until Double or Nothing, no big thing for April. We got a great promo out of the Four Young Pillars, and MJF is making the other three run the #1 contender race like he did Bryan Danielson from now until, I dunno, probably May 3rd so that May can focus on building MJF VS his challenger. Hard to say who it’ll be, but Darby’s off to a good start with that great Six Man Tag. Darby, Sting and Cassidy made an eclectic but great combination, especially with Sting borrowing some Freshly Squeezed tactics. And Cassidy’s International Championship card is open to just about anyone at this point.
Really good tag title match, but I should’ve figured shenanigans would help The Gunns retain. The Kingdom and Top Flight are solidly ROH Tag title contenders with #ReachForTheSky needing teams. Plus, The Gunns’ real story is with FTR, who came back to have a really good promo with them. Gunns VS FTR, Titles VS AEW contracts could honestly go either way. There’s a lot of talk out there of FTR going back to WWE since it’s under HHH right now, so this move could be how FTR exits AEW, but this could also be what guarantees FTR staying. Either way, this is going to be some really big stuff for the titles.
Good promo from Jade and her group, and you do have to appreciate Sterling’s gimmick of bringing about frivolous lawsuits on behalf of people to poke fun at wrestling tropes. The security guards finally got justice, even though they also got crushed by Wardlow, and now finishers that are exactly the same but with different names are being questioned. Pretty sure Leila loses the match and Taya tears up that document, though. Then it’ll be about who hits the chicken wing facebuster first to win that title. Jade has done an amazing job being an undefeated inaugural TBS Champion, but now is the time to move on to someone else so Jade can move on to the top title.
Great segment out of Hook, Stokely and The Firm. Great show from Stokely with trying to weasel out of this, then trying to run away from this, but of course he gets thrown around. Awesome use of spare guard railing, though. I figured Hook VS Ethan was going to be how this wraps up, can’t wait to see how that goes. And I appreciate Starks getting a little meta on the bad pacing of feuds. Starks VS Juice for Rampage, if it happens, will be great stuff, and maybe shenanigans helps Juice win to keep this going. Though, I feel like Starks and Juice could each be doing something better than spinning their wheels with each other. Give me Starks VS Hobbs and Orange VS Juice for those respective titles.
Speaking of which, only the second QTV segment and I’m just done with it. But they did point out the weird logic of Penta not being out there with Fenix last week. Penta VS Hobbs will probably go the same as Fenix VS Hobbs did, and Wardlow will come back for revenge. Also, another wrestling trope that needs poking at: Solo confessed to illegal activities but he won’t get investigated or arrested because it’s wrestling. If Sterling were a Face lawyer, he’d be right on Solo’s ass. But maybe Wardlow beats the crap out of Solo as his punishment, then he gets his shot at Hobbs at Double or Nothing to put this story to rest.
Great promo from Cole and Garcia, and I appreciate they had Garcia have that slip of the tongue. Garcia is of course enjoying the fun side of being a sports entertainer, showing off his personality and just doing whatever shenanigans he wants, but he also clearly enjoys the pro-wrestling stuff of just fighting. Garcia VS Cole is going to be awesome stuff, but Garcia and the JAS also have their story with the House of Black so who knows how the finish goes. Great match out of Storm VS Skye, and Skye looked great even in defeat. Another inconsistency in wrestling logic: Riho & Willow should’ve been ringside to start because they know The Outcasts will be up to no good. But I suppose that does give Riho & Willow their moment of heroism in running the Outcasts off.
I bring up that inconsistency in logic because that match was after Moxley VS Grayson, where both men had their allies ringside. The men can think to bring their boys but the women’s division can’t think to bring their friends along, when we’ve also always seen Britt have Rebel and/or Hayter and vice-versa? Anyway, great stuff out of Moxley VS Grayson, and Grayson also looked awesome even in defeat. The BCC apparently went after everyone Hangman considers a friend, as the Bucks were taken out off-camera by them, and then the BCC jump Grayson.
And then, for being a non-title TV main event, Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo went above and beyond anything I would’ve expected. There were some scary moments, like that Super Steiner counter to the powerbomb. But then again, it wouldn’t feel like an AAA match if there wasn’t some risk like that. BCC jumping Omega after he wins was a good way to keep the Elite reunion story going, but now there’s the new wrinkle of Don Callis wanting Omega to stay a singles star. To be fair, this is very much like the story of Callis, Omega and The Elite when AEW first got started. Callis wants Omega to return to that Omega, and he throws Hangman under the bus.
Another pro-wrestling logic thing is that no one watches the show back when it’s done, unless it helps the story. And I would hope Omega does that here to see what really happened as opposed to just trusting Callis and distrusting Omega. Or if not Omega, the Bucks can. The Bucks will have seen it on TV at the hospital (kayfabe) and The Bucks will tell Omega that Hangman didn’t hit Callis. Callis is also trying to recruit Konosuke, so it’d be great if Callis only comes out of this with one client. If Omega realizes not to trust Callis over The Elite, then Callis and Konosuke can stick together. If Omega still keeps Callis around, Konosuke can reject Callis to stay his own man.
My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/21/23)
Toni Storm gets Dark!
AEW Dark is on #ToniTime!
The Outcasts have drawn a line in the AEW Women’s Division, and are daring everyone else to cross it! Will Toni Storm strike down another “entitled rookie?”
- Juice Robinson VS Leon Ruffin; Juice wins.
- Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey; Leila wins.
- The Iron Savages VS The Wingmen; The Iron Savages win.
- The Renegades VS Avery Breaux & Mafiosa; The Renegades win.
- Toni Storm VS Billie Starkz; Storm wins.
Another surprisingly short line-up for Dark, with a couple matches that could go either way. The Iron Savages, formerly Bear Country, and the Wingmen will be a good one, but I’m leaning towards Bronson & Boulder winning that. Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey, former Baddie taking on Jade’s last sidekick standing, could also go either way, but I’m leaning towards Kiera. But it’ll be good to see Robyn & Charlette Renegade get a win here to build that unofficial Women’s Tag Division AEW has.
