PLAY BY PLAY
CM Punk heads to the ring!
Chicago goes nuts as AEW opens with their hometown hero! But then MJF shows up to kill the mood. MJF of course has a mic as he goes to the ring. Fans call him an A-Hole as he gets in the ring with Punk and just smirks at him. Fans then chant for Punk, but MJF says, “Doesn’t feel so good getting interrupted, does it, Punky Brewster? Quiet frankly-” Fans now switch to chanting STFU. But frankly, Punk hurt MJF’s feelings. It was almost as bad as that time Punk quit, took his ball and went home like a little bitch. What was great, though, was #ThePipebomb. So good, legendary even. What we’d all call a great promo. The Pipebomb was probably Punk’s best moment.
But here’s the problem, bud. Every MJF moment is the best MJF moment. Cuz unlike Punk, MJF isn’t a one trick pony. Don’t get it twisted, MJF respects Punk and what he’s done, and even that he’s straightedge, Not that MJF could ever imagine a straightedge guy could look so much like a meth addict. And it must be so hard, considering if he had his face, MJF would have to down eight shots of whiskey just to look at himself. But MJF really respects how Punk handled the situation between them. Punk can pretend there wasn’t one, but there is. Punk could be asked about dream matches, would name every other wrestler except for MJF.
Punk can pretend he isn’t interested, but in reality, it’s cuz he doesn’t want none. Punk’s whole career on the stick has been big fish in a small pond, but next to MJF, Punk’s just a minnow. Punk doesn’t want to go toe to toe on the stick? Well too bad. MJF’s gonna finish Punk faster than Punk’s UFC career. MJF smiles his smug smile again while fans boo. MJF wants Punk want to check his watch. Because if Punk wants to retort, it won’t say clobbering time. It’ll say outta time. Punk can drop pipebombs all he wants, because MJF drops nukes! Punk finally does get the mic, fans fire up and MJF patiently waits.
“I’m so disappointed in you. But let’s not start there. Let’s show our guest a little bit of Chicago hospitality.” Punk likes that MJF introduced himself as a proper young man to his elder. And Punk had no idea his first name was Maxwell. He thought MJF was for “My Jealous Fan.” Punk has the time. If MJF is hung up on Punk never mentioning him during press, that was by design. The last thing Punk wanted was to feed MJF’s rotten little ego. Punk is in MJF’s head. He might even be a poster on MJF’s wall. Doesn’t change Punk’s disappointment. He’s heard about the great MJF, and then he did what no one else has been able to do: he shut up the great MJF without saying a word.
And MJF has had seven days to think of good zingers, and he came out with the lowest hanging fruit. MJF thinks he’s revolutionary when in reality, he’s just a less famous MIZ! OUCH! Okay, settle down, settle down. MJF tells “Punky” that was solid. Creative stuff. Almost what MJF wanted. In fact, “almost what I wanted,” perfectly encapsulates Punk’s AEW run so far. Maybe it’s true. “Nostalgia is a drug that cause us to misconstrue our memories, and you, my friend, are no more than nostalgia.” And guess what? Punk is right! MJF was a fan! How couldn’t he have been? In this ring, on the mic, no one could touch Punk! Punk was the best! Or so MJF thought.
Ever since Punk’s almighty return, he’s struggled to beat the easiest competition or say anything of intrigue. MJF gets a little closer and says Punk’s breath smells like sh*t. Maybe cuz he’s been kissing so much ass! He’s been kissing ass all over! MJF will do a quick impression. “It sure is great to be back here in [insert name of town]. I love being a part of [insert name of company]. Gee whiz, I sure am looking forward to my match with [insert name of opponent]. Robotic Pucker Up Punk. You’ve gone soft, man. Your hair’s going gray, and looking at your eyes, if anybody needs to GO to Sleep, it’s you, bud.”
MJF just realized! This isn’t CM Punk. This is PG Punk! What happened to the guy MJF grew up on? The renegade! The ass-kicker! The outsider! This is more like a guy preaching Hustle, Loyalty and Respect. Whoa…! Except here’s the problem, PG. We can see you! MJF can see through him! Punk claimed he came back for the younger talent, but he also claimed he’d only come back for “a boat load of money.” Punk claimed he couldn’t fix pro-wrestling from his couch, yet he stayed put on it for seven long years. Excuse after excuse not to come back. Por que? Why? Cuz he was making comic books no one read or movies no one saw?
Or is it because Punk was terrified? Punk was scared he couldn’t hang anymore, or that he couldn’t in the first place. MJF shouts down the booing fans and says he’s here to tell Punk that he should be scared. In the other company, you were a cult hero because you were held down, should’ve been showcased as the number one. Yeah, and now here he is, has all the opportunity to prove those people right, but can he? Do the fans think Punk can do it? Chicago sure does. MJF is glad they think that now, but what about in a month? Two months? A year? Punk envies MJF. And Punk doesn’t like MJF because he represents everything in the business Punk hates.
MJF was born for this. He’s a clean cut professional, a promotor’s wet dream, but Punk was a tattooed misfit from the dumpiest part of the Midwest known as CHICAGO. Punk had to work his tail off, and MJF commends him for that. But MJF knows what eats Punk up inside. It’s the fact that after all the hard world, the blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice, deep down Punk and the fans know that Punk’s been nothing more than second best. Whether it was You Can’t See Me, or the King of Kings, Punk was never up to snuff. And now that Punk is in MJF’s ring and MJF’s company, it won’t be any different! Punk may say he’s Best in the World, but MJF is better than you, and you know it!
MJF and Punk stare down, and Punk says there’s some truth to that. A little. Scared? Coming back after seven years, yeah. Punk won’t lie. He didn’t know if the fans would remember or care about him. He didn’t know if he still had it. But trust Punk, he’s not scared anymore. And certainly not of MJF. The timing might not match up but Punk was selling out Madison Square Garden while MJF was marking out for Rosie O’Donnell. And the last time MJF did a song and dance, he made the New York Times! WOW~! Wanna sing him a song now, Maxwell? Don’t worry, MJF is in the ring with a professional and he’ll make the papers again. But this time it’ll be the obituaries!
Punk says MJF just enrolled himself into a school his parents can’t pay for. MJF talked too much, just like Punk back in the day! But Punk backed it up. MJF can’t back up shit without his backup! FTR, Shawn Spears, Wardlow, that is how MJF gets things done. Punk saw AEW, said that’s where he wants to be and test himself, and he went for the heart and soul of it, and that was Darby Allin! Now that chews MJF up, doesn’t it? And Punk beat Darby Allin, and didn’t need a pinkie ring to do it! MJF is too busy talking about how he’s the best, but he doesn’t realize he’s been replaced by BRITT BAKER! Fans chant “DMD! DMD!” for the Doctor.
Punk says MJF thinks he’s made great points, he still talks too much and they’ve wasted the people’s time. Chicago is the Second City, not because there’s somewhere better. Punk will be #2 with a bullet, cuz just like Chicago, when it burned down, they just built it back up on top of the smoldering embers! And who’s the man around here? MJF? No. The only way MJF will be number one is for MJF to wait until Tony Khan has a daughter that MJF can marry! Oh…! Punk says last time in Chicago, yeah Punk is happy to be here. He gave them free ice cream bars! But the only thing Punk can think is better is punching MJF in his needle dick right now!
Fans are thunderous as MJF throws off the scarf and jacket! But then he bails out. Punk waves bye, but will MJF man up and give Punk the fight everyone wants to see?
CM Punk VS QT Marshall w/ The Factory!
AEW returns and QT is in the ring. He wants Punk to focus on him, and they tie up. Punk headlocks, QT powers out but Punk runs him over. Punk flexes and fans cheer while QT gets up in a huff.

QT brings Punk around, scoops but Punk slips out to scoop and SLAM QT! QT gets up, into another scoop SLAM! And then another! Chicago fires up as Punk drags QT up again for another scoop SLAM! QT goes to a corner, Punk brings him up to snapmare and cover. ONE, but Punk has the chinlock.
QT fights up, puts Punk in the corner but the ref counts the ropebreak. QT lets off but Nick Comoroto grabs at him! But the ref sees that and EJECTS the Factory! Chicago sings, “Hey hey hey!

AEW returns to single picture and fans rally. Punk fights up, throws elbows to get free again, and runs, but into pop-up HAYMAKER! And then QT gets Punk up, SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! QT is furious but fans still rally for Punk. QT rains down fists, soaks up the heat, pretends he can’t hear the fans, then tells them to shove it!

Still undefeated in AEW! When and where will Punk get to show MJF that he’s still that same renegade ass kicker from back in the day?
Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Jurassic Express.
They have a lot of momentum given Full Gear and Rampage. Jungle Boy points out he beat Bobby Fish twice. They do have a lot of momentum and it feels damn good. Funny thing is, when you have the kind of momentum they have, you can’t help but feel damn near invincible! When you feel this way, good things happen. For example, Christian find out his guys here are the #1 contenders in the AEW Tag Division! Now, they’ve been here before, but the difference is the momentum, the confidence, and Christian Cage. He’ll make sure they get those tag titles! Luchasaurus roars, will Jurassic Express finally strike gold?
Eddie Kingston is in catering.
He doesn’t know what the cameraman is doing here, but he’s having his food. But yo, Moxley, he misses you! But then Daniel Garcia & 2point0 walk in. They apologize for things last week. They read the article in The Player’s Tribune. It was fantastic, touching, got to them and the entire world. But as his friend, they see Kingston is happy and full. That is great. But that means he’s not hungry anymore. He’s hungry for cake. But Matt Lee says this is the kiss of death for a fighter. Jeff Parker says they’ve all known each other a long time, so they’re here to help. Kingston couldn’t help his friend so- What did he say? They splash Kingston with his coffee!
But before this turns into a brawl, security and staff step in! Kingston throws the table over, but will he get his pound of flesh from 2point0 and “their son” soon enough?

AEW presents Battle of the Belts!
January 8th, live on TNT, Dynamite becomes Battle of the Belts! All the champions will have to defend their titles, but will it be a gold rush for their challengers?
Adam Cole & Bobby Fish talk backstage.
Brandon, just keep the damn thing rolling, Cole’s already pissed. These past few weeks have sucked! They lost at Full Gear, then on Rampage, and now there’s this Friendsgiving thing? What the hell is going on? Fish says the Bucks aren’t cleared. Cole knows, because he talks to them every single day. They’re not just teammates, they’re best friends! Almost family! But THE Best Friends walk in. Cole & Fish walked right past them, they know Chuck Taylor, Orange Cassidy & Wheeler Yuta are Best Friends. They don’t walk around doing the weird hand thing. Cole says Best Friends is just a name for them. Where’s even Trent?
And Cassidy is probably a horrible friend and Yuta doesn’t even have friends! So if they think they can look Fish & Cole in the face and say they’re better friends, then you’re kidding yourself. What’s Yuta’s middle name? Cassidy steps up. Fine. Cole & Fish are tired of being disrespected! They leave, but will they prove they’re better friends than Best Friends?
Tony Schiavone presides over a meeting backstage.
After the ultimatum on the offer, Team Taz finally gets Lio Rush & Dante Martin to sit down and look at the contract. Taz says Dante is either in or out. No more games, dude. A golden opportunity for Dante here, but Taz doesn’t even know why Lio is here. Lio asks who Taz is talking to, because he sure isn’t talking to Lio like that. Anything that has to do with Dante involves Lio. Well don’t come at Taz like that, this is simply business. So Dante has the pen, sign. Lio says this is business they want no part of. But then Dante picks up the pen and signs?! Dante is leaving Lio to join Team Taz! He even has some of Hook’s chips! A shocking development, but why did Dante make the change?

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.
What is next for Le Champion? Well, before getting to that, he just wants to say that despite all the grief he’s given Alex Marvez, this is Thanksgiving Eve, so- 2point0 and Daniel Garcia barge in, boasting about what they did to Eddie Kingston. Then they see Jericho, and bond as Canadians. Well maybe instead of bragging about throwing coffee in his face like jackasses, get some chains and nails to protect you from when Kingston breaks into their homes and beats their stuffed turkey asses. Jericho also can’t stop staring at Matt Lee’s square head. Look how square he is! He’s like an ugly SpongeBob SquarePants. Right, Chicago? “Square Head! Square Head!”
And Jericho will say this one time. If they ever, ever interrupt him again, he won’t throw coffee in their faces. He’ll knock their teeth down their throats. Ya dig? No trouble. But watch your mouth. 2point0 leave “the funny guy” behind, and Jericho says Happy Thanksgiving.
Britt Baker sits down for Friendsgiving.
She, Tony Schiavone and Rebel sit at the table, and Britt says this didn’t go as planned. But she will say that she is thankful that she could give them the best Thanksgiving dinner ever. Fat free pumpkin pie for Schiavone, and Rebel doesn’t need the carbs. But this all started off horribly because Rosa advanced. Rosa winning that TBS title will doom it for life. But one thing that is still very, very right is Britt is still AEW Women’s World Champion. Schiavone is thankful for his friends, but he has some bad news. Here’s some tape. See, earlier this year, All Out in Chicago, Riho was never actually eliminated in the battle royal.
So Tony Khan has decided, for Rampage Black Friday, it will be a “Black Friday Deal” match. Britt VS Riho, and if Riho wins on Friday, she gets a world title shot. No no no! Britt doesn’t like that. There are only Black Friday deals and matches. If Riho wants a deal, go to the mall. That’s all there is to it. Well it’s been booked, sorry… Well now Schiavone has ruined another holiday. This cuts him out of the Christmas party! And who put ice in the red wine? Was that Schiavone, too? And no, no DMD! Schiavone ruined it all. But will Britt find herself on the bad end of a golden opportunity against the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion?
Bryan Danielson VS Colt Cabana!
The American Dragon vows that until he gets his match with AEW World Champion, Hangman Page, he’ll take down the members of the Dark Order! And he decided to go after the hometown boy here in Chicago! Will BOOM BOOM have to go bye-bye after Bryan is done with him?
The bell rings, Cabana shows off the dancing pecs, and fans are fired up already. Bryan and Cabana tie up, Bryan wrenches to a wristlock but Cabana rolls, breaks free and drop toeholds to a facelock. Bryan wrenches out, back drops and has the armbar! Cabana gets the ropebreak, Bryan lets off at 4 but gets a cheap shot in as he does. Cabana keeps his cool as he and Bryan reset. They tie up, Bryan headlocks but Cabana wrenches and hammerlocks. Bryan reverses that onto Cabana, then brings him down to have the arms. Cabana fights up, turns the motorcycle stretch on Bryan, then brings him into a modified surfboard!

Cabana elbows Bryan down, then adjusts to MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up and Cabana gets Bryan up o fire off BIONIC ELBOWS as he has wrist control! But Bryan gets around, STO to DANIELSON STOMPS! Then omoplata, flex and LEBELLE LOCK! Cabana barely manages to tap, he’s that out of it! Bryan wins!
Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission
Bryan holds on longer, but then lets off when he’s satisfied. He even points out a bit of tooth that he kicked out of Cabana’s head! Bryan picks it up and holds it up like a trophy! AEW is picture in picture as Bryan soaks up the heat and Cabana realizes what happened to his own tooth. Schiavone is headed to the ring to interview Bryan, and AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and…
Schiavone is in the ring with Bryan, the #1 contender for the AEW World Championship, and undefeated since arriving here. Bryan isn’t making many friends. That’s funny, because when he debuted in Chicago, he got a much different reaction than this. And Bryan wonders, “Is it me? Or is it you?” Bryan has one word to describe that: fickle. Bryan is not fickle. Bryan came out here, said that he was going to kick Cabana’s head in, and not only did he do that, he kicked Cabana’s teeth out! Next week, in Atlanta, there are a couple Dark Orders from there! Bryan invites either one of them to fight him next week so he can kick their heads in!
All of this is leading to the ultimate head kicking, and that is Hangman Adam Page. But speaking of, here comes Hangman! The AEW World Champion goes right to the ring, title on his shoulder and mic in hand. Hangman gets in the ring and stares Bryan down. “I get it, you made your point. You said you’d kick Cabana’s head in, and you did. But that’s the last. Because we’re in Chicago, and this city, this building, well they hold a very special place in my heart.” Hangman can’t think of a better place or time to defend this title than right here and right now. But Bryan says of course Hangman would say that after he’s already had a match!
To Bryan, this isn’t cowboy s*it, it’s COWARD s*it. Well then tell you what. If Bryan won’t do the match right now, Hangman ain’t leaving without a fight. And Hangman will make it fair by giving Bryan the first shot. Hangman puts his hands back and fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan wont’ be insulted like that. Bryan drops the mic then SLAPS Hangman! Then they start throwing hands! Fans fire up, Hangman whips but Bryan reveres! Hangman goes up and out to BOOT, then slingshot, but Bryan runs from the Buckshot! This showdown is coming, what happens when these two finally throw down?
AEW takes one more look at Statlander VS Soho.
When Ruby arrived in AEW, there was a long list of women she wanted to face. Statlander was at the top. Kris has been rebuilt, more powerful and more galactic. Kris vows to defeat Ruby and be the first ever TBS Champion as #OUrLeader. Ruby wants to prove to AEW, to the others and to herself that she’s the best. So she has to take on the best. A true dream match, but only one can advance! We’ll see who that is, next Wednesday on Dynamite!
8 Man Tag: Cody Rhodes & Death Triangle VS Andrade El Idolo, Malakai Black & FTR!
The American Nightmare teams with The British Bastard and the Lucha Brothers to take on common enemies. The Face of Lucha Libre, the Dark Father and the AAA Tag Team Champions all want to demean and destroy Cody, Pac, Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M, but will they be the ones living the nightmare before Thanksgiving?
AEW returns as Death Triangle, and Alex Abrahantes, make their entrance, followed by Cody making his. Tensions are rising as the eight men stare down, and fans chant for “CERO! MIEDO!” The teams sort out, Cody steps up and Dax Harwood starts for his team. Dax and Cody both have heat from Chicago, but Cody seems to like that he has more. He and Dax tie up, go around, Cody puts Dax in a corner but Dax turns it around. Dax lets off, but then he and Cody talk trash. They feel out the grapple, tie up again, and Cody headlocks. Dax powers out, drops, but Cody runs him over! Cody and Dax reset, tie up again, and Dax headlocks.
Cody powers out, Dax runs him over but they keep going. Cody hurdles, Dax kicks low and brings Cody around to slingshot off the ropes. Cody slips out, waistlocks, but Dax bucks the O’Conner Roll. Dax turns into the kick and Rhodes Uppercut! Cody scoops to POWERSLAM! Off comes the weight belt! Fans want the free souvenir, Cody THORWS it way back there! Some fans chant, “Throw it back!” Cody gets Dax up but Dax pulls hair! Cody drags Dax away, tag to Pac. Pac takes the hand-off, wrenches to a wristlock, the fan DOES throw Cody’s belt back!

Winners: Andrade El Idolo, Malakai Black & FTR, by pinfall
A nasty way to win an absolute war! Will this alliance be something all four men are thankful for this year?
What an awesome AEW right here! Great set up for upcoming things, too. Great promos from Cole & Fish with Best Friends, as well as Kingston, 2point0 and Daniel Garcia, to set up these matches for Rampage, and Britt VS Riho is going to be a great match for the “Black Friday Deal.” I kinda hope Riho wins that, because then she can challenge Britt at “Battle of the Belts,” aka AEW’s Clash of Champions. Britt VS Riho for the title is going to be huge, too, and then it still saves someone like Thunder Rosa for AEW Revolution. I am a little surprised Rosa won tonight, when Britt interfered just as expected. But Rosa might not win against Cargill, so maybe we’re still on track for Britt VS Rosa.
Punk had quite the opening, being part of both an opening promo and opening match, but it all worked great in story. Punk and MJF took some powerful shots at each other, and at the WWE at the same time, and without considering who is Heel and who is Face, I think MJF not only kept even with Punk, he might’ve squeaked that one out. Punk VS QT was a good match, and of course Punk wins. Punk VS MJF can’t be delayed all the way until Revolution, but it almost feels too big for Winter is Coming, Battle of the Belts or the TBS switchover. It’d have to be a half an hour main event for one of those TV specials to feel appropriate.
Christian Cage & Jurassic Express have a good promo to make it known they’re coming for the tag titles, so maybe they’re going to be the ones at Battle of the Belts challenging Lucha Brothers. Sammy Guevara wasn’t on the episode, only Jericho was here to have his moment with 2point0 and Daniel Garcia, I’m sure we’ll get things set up for that TNT Championship next week since Tony Khan’s going to announce more of that card this Friday. Gunn Club taking on Bear Country was to keep that undefeated streak going while also setting things up for them and Darby-Sting. Maybe they face off for Winter is Coming as the one year anniversary of Sting in AEW.
I am really surprised Dante Martin signed the Team Taz contract and left Lio Rush behind. There wasn’t a lot of explanation as to why, that will surely be coming next week, but I kinda hope this means Team Taz can get into the tag division with Dante and Hobbs being a duo. Also, I wonder if something happens where Battle of the Belts gives us an FTW Championship match where Ricky Starks gets to shine while also helping someone else look good. Bryan VS Cabana was awesome stuff, Bryan is really embracing being Heel here. Hangman showing up after Bryan has his match does kinda feed into Bryan’s point from last week, though, but their brawl was really good.
The 8 Man Tag main event was awesome stuff, even with the Cody Rhodes heat kinda distracting from some of it. Cody was surely playing it up, though. He knows many fans are turning on him, he probably didn’t need to throw the belt, but it was a pretty great moment for that belt to be thrown back at him. I do appreciate that, after Pac takes the accidental superkick, he didn’t turn on Cody because he knows that was an accident. The Heels winning here makes sense, it can escalate this feud to something bigger for Winter is Coming before Penta & Fenix defend the tag titles at Battle of the Belts. I still wonder if Andrade will take over The Pinnacle since he’s been spending more time with FTR than MJF has been.
My Score: 9.2/10

Scorpio fires off haymakers until Wardlow sits down, then Scorpio flexes. Ethan Page is fired up for his tag partner, but Wardlow gets up to CLOBBER Scorpio!

Jon Moxley speaks.
“A lot of people have tried to make a name off of me. A lot of people have lost a lot of money betting against me. And tonight, those people are licking their lips. They’re watching me and waiting for me to be caught off guard, and hope that one day, somebody’s gonna come along and surprise me and put a beating on me that I never recover from. They think tonight, Brody King is gonna surprise me, they think he’s gonna catch me off guard, they think I don’t know exactly what kind of monster I’m dealing with in Brody King. But maybe y’all forgot exactly what kind of monster you’re dealing with in me.
“Ten days ago, I took a man I deeply respect and admire in Hiroshi Tanahashi, and I beat his face in. A few days after that, I was carving dudes’ faces up like hamburger in a steel cage! For fun! Blood & Guts is like golfing on a Sunday for me. And then a few days after that, I signed on the dotted line to defend the AEW World Championship against Brody King. Yeah, I know exactly who Brody King is. Y’all think I didn’t do my homework? I’ve seen him in NJPW, I’ve seen him in ROH, I know his friends, I know his enemies. Only one question left: How big is his heart? Does he have a monster sized heart beating in that chest?
“We’re gonna find out because he’s gonna be swimming in the deep waters with the biggest shark in this game, the AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley. When you step into the ring with anybody from the Blackpool Combat Club, we find your limits and we push them. We find out just how bad you want it! Being made for the BCC, being world champion, it ain’t for everybody. But it’s what I do every day. Step up or get stepped on.” The Maniac gives his ultimatum, how will the House of Black’s hulking beast respond?
Mark Sterling and Tony Nese speak.
Smart Mark asks if the camera is rolling. It is, and it seems Sterling wants us to see them get a very big signature on their petition. Keith Lee is walking up, and Sterling says this is “The People Against Swerve Strickland” to remove Swerve from the roster. Swerve is untrustworthy, he stabs people in the back, just like Keith! Sterling thinks Keith should sign it. Keith says greetings to Mr. Sterling and Mr. Nese. And yes, he has trust issues with Swerve, but they are still a tag team, and they are still winning. Unlike Nese and Sterling. Keith heads out and Nese tries to figure out what Keith meant by that. But will Swerve only prove Sterling right tonight?
Christian Cage & Luchasaurus are here.
Captain Charisma and his brainwashed behemoth are in Rochester, New York, and fans boo because of how they’ve both betrayed Jungle Boy. Christian has a mic to say, “Here we are, on the heels of Blood & Guts, and I am the Cage that everybody is talking about. Now, you ignorant pieces of crap think that you deserve to know the reason why I turned my back, and said and did the things that I did to Jungle Boy and his family, are now demanding answers, wanting to know why Luchasaurus decided to remain aligned with me.” Fans boo but that is technically true, we do want to know why.
But wait! MATT HARDY is here! And he has a mic to tell Christian, “You are unreal. You’re like the Michael Jordan of being an asshole. Every time I don’t think you can top yourself again, you somehow do.” Hardy will be honest, JB was his friend. Hardy got to know JB well these last few months. JB trusted and respected Christian, and Christian screwed him over! No one, let alone JB, deserved what Christian did. Hardy gets up at the ring but Christian wants to get this straight. “You’re going to sit here and pretend you’re suddenly buddy-buddy with Jungle Boy, like you know him the way that I know him? Or the way that Luchasaurus knows him?
“Here’s the thing, Matt. You’re starting to make your brother sound like the sober one.” No one can believe Christian went there! The fans double down on calling Christian an A-Hole. Hardy sees what’s going on here with Luchasaurus now. Hardy and Christian have been at this a long time, and in the last few years, Christian is just using Luchasaurus to make as much money as he can. But Hardy can’t be a hypocrite, he did the same. He took advantage of Private Party, Butcher & Blade, and he used them. But he hates himself for that and regrets that time so badly. And in a twist of fate, his last month has been upside-down, it’s been a mess.
Hardy says maybe he deserves that, it’s karma coming to get him. But right now, Hardy won’t let another be taken advantage of. Not Luchasaurus or anyone else. Christian says no, Hardy is here because of his ego! We all know Matt Hardy is a clout chaser, which is why he can’t stand when his name isn’t in the headlines for more than two seconds. Right? He’ll use everyone around him! His kids, his wife, his father-in-law, his dog Sparky, his Aunt Jenny, a dilapidated boat, a lawnmower, and hell, he’ll even turn a blind eye to his own brother’s issues just to ride his coattails for one last run!
Hardy says Christian is delusional, but Christian says Hardy is here under the guise of caring for Jungle Boy, when the fact is, Hardy realized that Christian is the most influential star in AEW and Hardy needs to be near him. That is embarrassing, Matt, it really is. But what’s even worse, Matt’s screw-up brother isn’t the most embarrassing part of his family, MATT is! Hardy wans to throw down but Luchasaurus steps in his way. And Christian cheap shots Hardy! Hardy chokes Christian but Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Hardy out of the ring! Luchasaurus goes out and RAMS Hardy into the steel steps!
Christian tells Luchasaurus to finish Hardy, but Hardy fires forearms back! Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS Hardy, digs his head into the post, and then BOOTS him against the steel! But this isn’t enough, Christian has Luchasaurus clear the timekeeper’s table! Luchasaurus then choke grips to CHOKE SLAM Hardy through the table!! Christian then sits by Hardy to say, “There you are. Your name is in the headlines. Enjoy your relevance.” Christian leaves with Luchasaurus, will they continue to stoop to new lows in order to rise up the ranks?
AEW has the aftermath of Blood & Guts.
A bloody Matt Menard says that the only reason the others agreed to such as match is because of Chris Jericho. And if the Jericho Appreciation Society got anything out of that night, it’s that they stole the privilege of seeing Eddie Kingston make Jericho tap! Menard was the one who gave up when Claudio Castagnoli had the Sharpshooter on, sparing Jericho from Eddie’s stretch plum. William Regal says that after 39 years in this business, he has never ever witnessed such horror as Blood & Guts. Ortiz says he wants more! More blood, more guts, just MORE! Regal says that is what the Blackpool Combat Club is all about.
Claudio says you can call him The Mailman now, because he always delivers! Menard says if you want big money, you gotta do that “big boy sh*t.” Angelo Parker, as bloody as he ended up, vows that the JAS will not stop until Eddie Kingston is in a grave!! Will there be no end to the war of JAS VS BCC? Speaking of…
Tony Schiavone interviews Claudio and Jake Hager backstage.
Not just that, but it’s the parking lot. Schiavone says this may not be the best place for this, but he is here with two giant men who know each other well. They’ve both signed a waive, No Physicality. Hager says that’s right, no physicality here tonight. The 16 THOUSAND people at Forbidden Door cheered Claudio on, and that may have him thinking he’s tough, but deep down inside, he knows he’s not as tough or as hard as Jake Hager. Claudio knows he’s not a world champion like Hager. Claudio was never world champion in ROH or in WWE, and he won’t be one here in AEW. Hager is an UNDEFEATED MMA pro-fighter, and it is about time he got some respect.
Claudio tells Hager that everyone who says, “I want my respect,” doesn’t deserve respect! Claudio beat Zack Sabre Jr, one of the best technical wrestlers, in his first match here. And then Claudio went on to lead his team to victory against Hager’s team- Oh, sorry, Hager just carries the bags for Jericho, right? But while Hager got his arm wrapped, Claudio got his raised, and it’ll happen again next week when they go 1v1. Hager may be undefeated in MMA, but Claudio is undefeated in AEW, where rankings matter. And next week, Claudio is going to go 3-0! Will the Swiss Cyborg dismantle Rock Hard Hager when they meet man to man once again?
Swerve in Our Glory VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny!
Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland are still trying to smooth things out, but they at least have common enemies to focus on tonight. Will their Limitless House still stand? Or will the mercenaries help stick that knife in Keith’s back for Swerve?
The teams sort out and Blade steps against Keith. Fans rally up for Keith but Blade talks trash as he conducts the singing. “OH~ BASK IN HIS GLORY~!” Blade SLAPS Keith, but Keith HEADBUTTS Blade! Butcher tags in and fans fire up to see him tie up with Keith. They are in a deadlock, break, and go again. Keith powers Butcher to a corner, Butcher goes up the corner, but Keith TOSSES him away! Keith stalks Butcher but Butcher bails out to get a chair! Blade wants Butcher to calm down but Swerve is backing Keith up. Butcher cools off and puts the chair down to get in the ring.

The mercs mug Swerve, Butcher HEADBUTTS him, and then CHOPS Swerve in the corner. Butcher digs his forearms into Swerve at the corner, lets off as the ref counts, and Butcher whips Swerve hard into the corner! Swerve falls and Blade tags in to drag Swerve into ropes. Blade CHOKES Swerve, lets off as the ref counts, but Bunny CHOKES Swerve now! The ref misses that but Keith protests. Bunny frolics while Blade drags Swerve up.

Winners: Swerve in Our Glory, by pinfall
Somehow, someway, Keith & Swerve pull it out! But Team Taz barges out to say this is really starting to piss them off! Will Hobbs says the fans can feel it. “You think we’re going to allow you two to still come out here and disrespect us? What you have in front of you is two grown ass men, trick ass bitch!” Ricky Starks has Hobbs hold the FTW Championship so he can have the mic. They’ve been playing real nice right now, because they could’ve ended Keith’s & Swerve’s careers online and on the mic. If you don’t believe them, ask their former teammate!
But if Swerve & Keith wanna act like they’re somebody, when every time they’ve stood in the ring against Team Taz, every time they try to get on the mic against them, Team Taz has proven there are levels to this, and Swerve & Keith are NOT on their level! They are levels below them! Starks says that just because of where they came from, Swerve & Keith think they can get a shot at them! Well if you want to talk about it, Starks will beat their asses right now! But if we’re talking about who the best tag team is, then- “SUPERKICK! PARTAAAY~!” The AEW World Tag Team Champions, the YOUNG BUCKS, are here!
Matt Jackson has the music cut, and he says Starks may as well have just been in the back to cue up their music for them. That was pretty sweet. And gentlemen, sorry to interrupt- Or, no, the Bucks don’t have to apologize for anything, they started this damn company! But hey, great match from Keith & Swerve, they have been killing it. All the teams in the back have been killing it, this whole AEW Tag Division is on fire! “Everyone is eating well. But let us not forget who set the damn table in the first place.” Nick takes the mic to say no disrespect here, because these two teams are very good.
In fact, at Double or Nothing, Team Taz and Swerve in Our Glory “had one hell of a match. It was four and a half stars, that’s unbelievable. But that’s an off-night for the Young Bucks!” And they couldn’t even get the job done, Jurassic Express won. But then look who beat Jurassic Express a few weeks later. “Read it and mother effin’ weep it! WE did!” Now there is a proposal here. How about it’s Triple or Nothing? Next week, a TRIPLE THREAT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH…! Team Taz, Swerve in Our Glory, and though the fans chant for FTR, Nick says, “We’re better than them, and you guys know that, come on.”
But the point is, it will be Team Taz VS Swerve in Our Glory VS “The best damn tag team of all time…! THE YOUNG BUCKS!” Another big opportunity for the #AbsolutePowerhouses in Hobbs & Starks, as well as the Limitless House of Keith & Swerve! Will this Triple Threat finally be a chance for one of those teams to shine with gold? Or are Matt & Nick just taking out two birds with one stone?
The House of Black speaks.
Malakai says, “I envy you, Jon. I envy you for the decisions that you made, and the violence that you inflicted on yourself. We didn’t get the luxury of your decisions. No, our violence is by design. But what I truly envy is the experience that you’re about to have. You think you know pain? You think you know anger? You think you know violence? No, you don’t. But I’ll make sure that Brody King will eave his mark on you. Because the House will make sure that anything that you experience tonight goes far beyond the physical realm of pain. I envy you, Jon.” Just how much brutality will Brody King unleash upon Jon Moxley?
Eddie Kingston is here!
The Mad King goes to the ring where Tony Schiavone is waiting. Schiavone reminds us that a week ago, it was Blood & Guts, and we all saw what happened. But there is still a name on Eddie’s hit list and that is Chris Jericho. Eddie says that before we get to that, please, hold the mic up like a professional, thank you. Eddie says before getting to Jericho, he congratulates Wardlow on tonight’s win. And two, congratulations to everyone that was on the winning team of Blood & Guts, even Claudio. See? Eddie’s a nice guy, he’s maturing. Pbbt. But anyway, here’s the real deal why he’s out here.
“Chris Jericho. You made me a liar. I didn’t taste your blood, you didn’t bleed. SO, I’m gonna get you again, and I’m gonna make you bleed, and I’m gonna taste your blood!” But Chris Jericho, as well as Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti, shout at Eddie via the titantron. They want him to pay attention. Eddie wants to taste Jericho’s blood? Eddie wants to get crazy? You’ll see how crazy Jericho can get. The camera pans over and Tay has been beating up Ruby Soho! There’s an open car door, and Tay has Soho stagger into the gap, to SLAM the door on Soho’s arm!! Soho drops to the floor, clutching her arm!
“Watch yourself Kingston, or this will happen to you!” The JAS rushes off before security rushes in. They call for a medic, has the JAS just broken Soho’s arm just to get at Eddie?
The Dark Order is here!
Fans cheer as Negative One leads the way for Evil Uno, Preston Vance, Alex Reynolds, John Silver & Anna Jay to the ring here in Rochester. Fans cheer for “BRODIE! BRODIE!” to honor Negative One’s father, and Silver has the mic to say, “The Dark Order is in Rochester! And Rochester is Dark Order Country!” Uno takes the mic to say that is why it is very important they’re here today. They have very important news for everyone, and everyone here should here it because they have followed the Dark Order since the beginning, and they made the Dark Order what it is today. Uno wants to personally thank all the fans for showing up and supporting them.
And that is why it is so important that Uno gets to say this. “The six of us… Are here to stay!” Fans cheer as Uno says Dark Order is forever! A new chapter begins, and that begins with a proclamation, and he knows just who should say it. Negative One is given the mic! Fans cheer but then QT Marshall comes out to ruin everything. He doesn’t know how long AEW has to put up with the “charity case” for. Until he’s 18 or something? Fans boo but QT says he gets it. Negative One’s dad was from right here in Rochester. “But you ain’t your father! Your father’s a legend in AEW! He beat me within five minutes in his first match ever here.”
Uno has to hold Negative One back as QT continues to say that Negative One takes after his MOM! QT says that he didn’t bring his friends out here. So Negative One can get his friends out of here to face QT man to man! Or else QT will go to his private locker room and grab each and every one of his action figures to rip their heads off! But wait, here comes HANGMAN PAGE! The Cowboy is still a friend of the Dark Order, and that means he is a friend of Negative One! QT freaks out, but then turns around for Uno to ROCK him with a forearm! Hangman ROCKS QT back, and then they both toss QT into the ring!
Fans fire up as Vance whips QT into a corner for Silver to GAMANGIRI! Silver feeds QT to Reynolds’ ROLLING ELBOW! ENZIGURI! STUNNER! GERMAN SUPLEX! QT flounders from the Beaver Boy Blitz, but then he’s fed to the DISCUS from Vance! Brodie would be proud of that one! Uno has Brodie Jr. tell ’em! “QT, QT, QT. I would pin you right now, but y’know what? I’m gonna wait until I’m 19.” Negative One makes a promise about a decade in the making, will he follow in his father’s footsteps and whoop QT’s ass in his AEW debut?
Good ol’ JR joins commentary!
Jim Ross lends his analysis to the second hour, and it’s going to be a slobber knocker!

The White Bull pulled off some major bull, that’s for sure! But will both Lucha Brothers get their revenge on Rush & Andrade soon enough?
Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.
They’re all very happy, and Sonjay says they’re celebrating already because “Samoa Joe decided to crawl out of that hole that he’s been hiding in.” It is official for July 23rd, Death Before Dishonor, and the ultimate celebration begins when Sonjay’s best friend in this entire world, Jay Lethal, pins Samoa Joe to become the NEW ROH World TV Champion! And Lethal says he will tell us God’s honest truth, “I know that this is not going to be an easy fight.” Samoa Joe is one tough champion. But that’s why Lethal isn’t taking him lightly. But they are taking his championship. They all share a laugh, and Singh adds that Lethal will be the new champion! Will Lethal be able to back up all those words? Or will the Samoan Submission Specialist make Lethal suffer?
Tony Nese & Mark Sterling are still looking for signatures.
They go to the Best Friends, Chuck Taylor, Trent Beretta & Orange Cassidy, saying they’re the last signatures the petition needs to remove Swerve Strickland from AEW. After all, Swerve backstabbed Cassidy during the Royal Rampage. Cassidy says he never reads anything without his lawyer present. He has a lawyer? Yes, it’s DANHAUSEN! He has the paperwork right here. Nese says forget asking, he is going to make Cassidy sign. Chuck & Trent step up to push Nese back but Sterling has everyone just hold on a second. There is money to be made here. Nese VS Cassidy for Rampage! Wait, Danhausen has a better idea! Cassidy VS Nese on Rampage! That’s the same idea!
But anyway, if Nese wins, Cassidy has to sign the petition. Danhausen says objection sustained, and Cassidy says he will allow it. Overruled. What? No, Sterling’s the real lawyer, HE allows things! Hearsay! Sterling grumbles and storms off with Nese, but the deal is struck. Will Cassidy win and strike down this frivolous lawsuit?
8 Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Gunn Club VS Fuego Del Sol & Ruffin’ It!
It’s rather surprising that Max Caster, Anthony Bowens and the Ass B- er, Austin & Colten Gunn, are agreeing to team up again after the heated argument that happened last time. But will they be able to let cooler heads prevail and get another win for the team? And of course, Caster has a rap! “Acclaimed & The Gunns-” GASP! Austin snatches the mic from Caster?!

You, a man who preys on the flawed, have enraged a man who is flawless! I, who rattles the gates of Heaven, will destroy the gates of Hell! So go ahead and buy yourself a bag of coins, because when I’m done with you, the House of Black will have many eyes to cover. Because the Redeemer is coming, enraged!!” Will Miro’s wrath wreak havoc on Malakai and his entire house?

And with that, #ThunderStorm wins! Will we see these two continue on as a team? What about the chances of them clashing for the AEW Women’s World Championship once again?
Tony Schiavone is backstage with The Baddies.
Jade Cargill, the still undefeated TBS Champion, tells Tony to “cut the sh*t,” then she asks Stokely Hathaway, “What the hell was that last week?” He says hold on, listen! If a wrestling company can have an Interim World Champion, then they can have an Interim Baddie! Leila Grey walks in and offers a handshake to Jade. Jade refuses, but what about Kiera Hogan? Nope, still rejected. Stokely knows the world wants to know what exactly he said to Leila last week, and he’ll tell us! $1100, because that is what it cost to get Leila to step up.
Stokely knows his math, and he knows 3v2 is better than 2v2. “And it takes a special type of finesse to get someone to go from wanting to beat your ass, to saving your ass.” And you know what they say, “Trust the process.” Stokely goes to put his arm around Leila but she shrugs that off. Jade says if Leila fails to deliver, then that’s Stokely’s ass. Jade and Kiera head out, but Stokely asks if Leila trusts him while offering a fist bump. She doesn’t respond, but he says they’ll talk later. Will Leila prove she can be a true Baddie through and through?
Tony Schiavone now interviews Daniel Garcia.
Garcia requested this time to call out Wheeler Yuta. “Hey, Yuta, last week on Dark, I put my foot on your neck and I held your title above my head, and there wasn’t a damn thing you could do about it. Last week at Blood & Guts, I spent an hour with you in the ring. I felt all that you could give me, you had my blood on your hands. But I’ve determined that you don’t strike an ounce of fear into my heart whatsoever. You’re not scaring nobody with that fake tough guy act, let me tell you.” And at Death Before Dishonor, don’t be scared, Yuta. Give Garcia that shot for the ROH Pure Championship, and whether he’s a pro-wrestler or a sports entertainer, you damn sure will call him the best.
Cash Wheeler says, “So we call ourselves ‘7 Star FTR,’ the living legends. We are the current AAA, IWGP and ROH Tag Team Champions, and I can stand here before you and comfortably say that no match has ever taken more out of us than when we won these at ROH Supercard of Honor.” But uh, we’re just a few weeks away from Death Before Dishonor and the PPV return of ROH. And despite the fact that they beat the Briscoes for the ROH titles, despite the fact that they’re on the run of a lifetime, there are still some people who doubt they’re the best in the world, and that doesn’t sit right with them.
Dax Harwood says, “That’s the beauty of professional wrestling. You can think whatever you want, believe whatever you want, but you can also be wrong. If ROH wants to sell a PPV, they gotta put on the rematch of the decade. So I’m telling you right now, Briscoes VS FTR II, one last time to prove who is the absolute best tag team on this planet! Briscoes, if you want to be a king, you got to kill a king. And we ain’t dead yet.” #TopGuys out. FTR is calling out Jay & Mark Briscoe, will Death Before Dishonor 2022 be one for the ages?
Interim AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Brody King!
The Best in the World is away, but the Maniac vows to prove he is the rightful owner of that title. But will he be able to remind everyone that he’s also the scariest monster in wrestling today? Or will the House of Black soon shine in the shadows with gold on the mantle?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and even if this is for the interim title, this fight is going to be legit!
Fans are thunderous already as Moxley and Brody stare down. They slowly circle, tie up, and Brody puts Mox in a corner. The ref counts, Brody lets off to CHOP, and Moxley staggers away to the opposite corner. Fans fire up as Brody watches Moxley get back up. Moxley gets in Brody’s face, and right up in there!

It was a fight to be sure, but Moxley holds onto the title! Who will step up to him next while we await CM Punk’s return? As for Brody King, fans cheer his valiant effort, and Malakai Black walks out. Malakai looks Brody in the eye, and pats him on the back. But then DARBY ALLIN AND STING appear?! The #RelentlessIcons show Brody King respect! Darby says Brody kicked his ass last week, and it doesn’t matter what anyone says! Brody EARNED his spot here. Darby offers a handshake, but Brody leaves Darby hanging. The House of Black doesn’t do anything for respect, but will they take on Darby & Sting for supremacy in AEW?
A great episode for Dynamite, but they sure stretched that first hour. Only two of the six matches happened before Jim Ross joined commentary at the halfway point, and I would’ve liked if they’d tried to split things up a bit more evenly. But even with that, we got a great opener with the TNT Championship. It was obvious the Street Fight would bring out a bunch of American Top Team scrubs for Wardlow to throw around like nothing and then he wins the title. This is still great for Wardlow, but maybe it would’ve been more powerful if he’d won this title sooner, or if it was just Scorpio VS Wardlow 1v1 in a real epic match, not a Heel using all his resources to protect himself.
So apparently Mark Sterling, having been fired by Jade Cargill and not having MJF around, has resorted to filing frivolous lawsuits as his gimmick. It’s pretty funny, though, as he fails to convince Faces to side with him, a Heel. The promo with Best Friends and Danhausen was really funny with Danhausen just spouting legal terminology. Nese VS Cassidy will surely go Cassidy’s way so he can keep building momentum towards a title. Pac defends his All-Atlantic Championship at Rev-Pro’s event this weekend, but I’m pretty sure Pac retains, and then maybe we can get Pac VS Cassidy for this title at All Out.
That’s made even more likely by how Miro is going after Malakai Black. Miro had a very good promo as always, and he’s going to have an awesome match with Malakai. We got quite the promo segment with Christian, Luchasaurus and Matt Hardy. Hardy’s line about the “Michael Jordan of A-Holes” was really good, and of course Christian stoops to bringing up what happened with Jeff Hardy. A bit cheap, but of course Luchasaurus demolishes Matt Hardy. Sounds like this is setting up a tag match where Jungle Boy joins Matt Hardy to take on Christian & Luchasaurus, and we’ll see if JB can turn Luchasaurus back to the light side or if Luchasaurus stays Heel. Honestly, Luchasaurus could probably benefit most from his Heel turn.
We got a good Blood & Guts aftermath promo where a few different guys got to say their piece, and of course we’re getting more Eddie VS Jericho. Tay Conti hurting Ruby Soho could be a way to give us a Mixed Tag before the final blow-off. And adding Claudio VS Hager to things, that match is going to be great, and I would think Claudio wins to stay hot in AEW. We got a very good tag match out of Keith & Swerve VS Butcher & Blade, and I did like that they at least teased the “accidental attack misunderstanding.” Swerve totally understood the Pounce was an accident, and they finished off Butcher & Blade. Hobbs & Starks had a very fired up promo, and the Bucks had a good on to set up another Triple Threat for the titles. I would think the Bucks win that, just as Jurassic Express did.
FTR had a good promo to call out the Briscoes, and you can bet that match will be added to the Death Before Dishonor card. That will be a great match, and FTR will win so they can move on to face Young Bucks at All Out. Garcia had a good promo to call out Yuta, their ROH Pure Championship match will be great stuff, and that could probably go either way. I think Joe VS Lethal for the ROH World TV Championship could go either way, too, because Lethal has Singh and Sonjay on his side to overbook that match. Maybe after DBD, Tony Khan and other executives find a way to put on an ROH TV show, but no idea if I’ll be able to cover it if it happens.
We got a very fun segment out of The Dark Order and QT Marshall. Great to see Hangman join up with Dark Order again, and though not delivered with quite the stank it should have, Negative One at least got through his line about sparing QT more humiliation until he’s an adult. It would be amazing if 10 years from now, we do see Negative One/Brodie Lee Jr. face an old man QT and win in five minutes like his father. And moreover, it was good that Evil Uno assured us that the members of Dark Order we have left are going to stay in AEW one way or another. It’s a shame the faction ran out of steam like it did, but maybe they can rebuild.
We got a pretty good tag match out of #ThunderStorm VS Nyla & Marina, and of course the Faces win. Rosa and Storm can easily have another title match as part of the July themed episodes, like Fyter Fest or Fight for the Fallen. Stretching this to All Out in September would just seem odd to me, so maybe someone comes out of another story primed to face Rosa. Jade not accepting Leila Grey is a natural move for their story, but who knows where it goes from here. Leila could prove herself worthy, because I don’t see Stokely being fired by Jade so soon, and then we could have that Six Woman Tag I expected but Leila in for Red Velvet.
We got a pretty good 8 Man Tag, with the dysfunction finally adding something to the match. The Gunn Club turning on The Acclaimed was quite the surprise, though, but I had a feeling Billy was going to find a reason to be proud of his sons. And this could be the Face turn for The Acclaimed, and that is going to be great because fans love them. Penta VS Rush was awesome stuff, especially with how Alex and Jose got in on it. A Six Man Tag of La Faccion Ingobernable VS Death Triangle where Jose and Alex are the third men would be pretty fun.
And of course, we got an awesome main event out of Moxley and Brody. Moxley was of course retaining, but we all know Brody is badass, and it was cool for Darby to show him respect. Even with Miro coming for Malakai, we need to get House of Black VS Darby & Sting first. Miro could even go after Malakai after the match, regardless of who wins. I don’t know if it has to be a full Face turn for Miro, but he will come off the Face against Malakai since fans still love Miro. As for Mox, the possibilities really are endless for who he can face for the Interim title at All Out. Personally, whether or not Joe wins against Lethal at DBD, give me some Mox VS Joe!
My Score: 8.9/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (7/5/22)
A BIG 8 Man main event!
Universal Studios is still Dark!
AEW Dark has eight matches for Universal Studios, and tops it off with an 8 Man Tag! Will the Dark Order outshine The Wingmen in Orlando?
- Lee Moriarty VS Leon Ruffin; Moriarty wins.
- Bear Country VS Adrian Alanis & Liam Gray; Bear Country wins.
- A.Q.A VS Avery Breaux; AQA wins.
- Josh Woods VS Barrett Brown; Woods wins.
- Sonny Kiss VS Lamar Diggs; Kiss wins.
- Aaron Solo VS Fuego Del Sol; Fuego wins.
- Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS Dariana Bengston & Gus de la Vega; Lethal & Singh win.
- 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS The Wingmen; The Dark Order wins.
Great to see Sonny Kiss in action again, it has been some time since they’ve been anywhere in AEW. Lee Moriarty VS Leon Ruffin is going to be a really fun match but I would think Moriarty wins. The Dark Order VS The Wingmen really is full faction against full faction. Evil Uno, Preston Vance, John Silver & Alex Reynolds are pretty much the only members left, with Stu Grayson and Alan Angels leaving AEW, and Colt Cabana avoiding AEW in favor of ROH, given his falling out with CM Punk.
