PLAY BY PLAY

Tony Schiavone kicks off the Buy-In!

And he gives an introduction to the hometown hero, Dante Martin! Fans are fired up to see Angelo Dorado again after the big week he’s had from Dynamite to last night on Rampage. Schiavone notes that Lio Rush is not present because of the tragic death of Lio’s grandmother, but he also brings up Team Taz offering Dante a contract. Team Taz is up in the luxury box watching as Dante gets a mic. But before he can speak on the offer, The Acclaimed walks out! And of course Max Caster has a rap! “Hey yo, Dante, join The Acclaimed. All these other teams, man, they should be ashamed. Lio Rush can’t hang in this environment. He’s about to go into his 15th retirement.

“And Team Taz ain’t got no plus. Only guys on TV less than us! So hang with us if you want to be down. You’re the only good thing from this depressing ass town.” Anthony Bowens gets the mic to tell Minneapolis that The Acclaimed have arrived! But then they cut the music, and he says Dante has a lot on his mind. Fans tell them to STFU but Bowens will not! He’s got a lot to say so you shut up! Who to align with? Matt Sydal? Lio Rush? Team Taz? The Acclaimed want Dante to join them! They’d be the hottest team in ALL of professional wrestling. But to make themselves clear, you’re either with them or against them. So what’s it gonna be, buddy?

Dante hears “NO! NO! NO!” from Minneapolis, but Bowens reiterates. They don’t have the patients like the clowns do. Give them an answer or they break Dante’s legs and send him home crying like his brother. Yes or no? Dante asks, “What do you think Minneapolis?” “NO!” Dante DECKS Bowens! And then he DECKS Caster! The Acclaimed regroup, Dante runs, jumps to the rope and springboards to wipe The Acclaimed out! That checks off one choice, but what about the others? Who will Angel Dorado bring along on the Top Flight?

 

The Buy-In – Jamie Hayter & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Thunder Rosa & Hikaru Shida!

TBS Championship Tournament entries join forces to take on their future opponents! Hayter’s gonna hate facing La Mera Mera but the Native Beast is hungry to sink her teeth into the Full Metal Warrior once again. Which side gets big momentum towards the tournament quarterfinals?

Tensions already run high as all four women get in the ring. The ref gets the teams to sort out, and Rosa starts with Nyla. Rosa throws her hair piece at Hayter, Hayter stomps it on the apron. Nyla and Rosa feel things out, Nyla kicks low then headlocks. Rosa pulls hair, powers out, but Nyla runs her over. Fans chant for “Eddie! Eddie!” with Vickie here, but things speed up in the ring. Rosa jumps but into a fireman’s carry! Nyla slips under to tilt-o-whirl and sunset flip! TWO, Rosa wheelbarrows and gets around to sunset flip again, TWO! Basement dropkick!

Shida goes up and fans fire up as she rains down fists! They count all the way to 10, then Shida dropkicks! Tag to Rosa, Rosa throws body shots, but Nyla hits back. Rosa kicks, goes to suplex but Nyla’s big and strong. Shida tries to help out but Nyla DOUBLE SUPLEXES them! Then DOUBLE DROPKICKS them down! Tag to Hayter, she and Nyla mug Rosa, and Hayter bumps Rosa off buckles. Hayter stomps away on Shida, lets off to argue with the ref, and Nyla chokes Rosa! Fans boo but Nyla laughs it up as she gets away with it.

Hayter kicks Rosa at the ropes, brings her around and bumps her off buckles. Hayter chokes Rosa, Rosa kicks her away but Hayter throws haymakers and CHOPS! Vickie likes that and Hayter CHOPS again. Rosa turns Hayter around to CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Vickie doesn’t like that! Hayter turns things around, stomps Rosa down, then soaks up the heat. Hayter drags Rosa up to knee low, whip to the corner, then run in. Rosa goes up, Hayter posts herself! Hot tag to Shida! Shida rallies on Hayter and Nyla, then goes up to missile dropkick Hayter down! Shida gets Hayter up but Hayter slips out of the Canadian rack, only for Shida to ROUNDHOUSE!

Shida runs but Nyla holds ropes open! Shida tumbles out, Nyla says she’ll “help” her up, and she LARIATS Shida down! Hayter and Nyla stomp Shida, Vickie cackles, and Nyla puts Shida in the ring. Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Shida, Nyla drags her up to a neck wrench. Nyla throws down elbows over and over while fans rally harder. Nyla hits a NECK SNAPPER, then knees low.

Shida swipes at Nyla, Hayter stomps Shida down! Hayter digs her boots in, then again argues with the ref so Nyla can claw at Shida’s face! AND BITE HER FOREHEAD! Rosa protests, Nyla gets away with it all, then Hayter tags Nyla in. Nyla suplexes high and hard, then pie faces Rosa. Nyla clubs and hammers Shida down then tags in Hayter. They mug Shida, and hit a double CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Shida is still in this but Hayter CLUBS her down.

Winners: Hikaru Shida & Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

Nyla can’t believe she got caught like that! Will Shida slay the Native Beast one more time to head for the TBS Championship? Will Rosa get through the Hayter in her own right?

 

Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy & Best Friends.

Last night on Rampage, the Lumberjack match, Blade knocked out Cassidy with the knuckles and Hardy got the win. But the feud is far from over as Tony Khan has made for Dynamite, The Butcher & The Blade VS Orange Cassidy and a partner of his choosing. Yes. Cassidy could choose a friend but they’ve all been working hard so he’ll give them a night off. But uh, the Best Friends just joined this little group called Chaos. Cassidy asked Chuckie T who is in that group, and they thought, maybe they’ll bring one of their dogs. Is the match-up between Big Money Matt’s mercenaries and Freshly Squeezed set in stone?

 

Darby Allin VS MJF!

The Relentless One and the Salt of the Earth have been named two of the Four Young Pillars of AEW, by MJF himself. But in a sense, he’s not wrong. However, “the man who can beat Darby Allin with a headlock takeover” might be wrong about being able to break Darby in body, mind and spirit. Will that break Maxwell Jacob Friedman in return? Or is MJF better than Darby, and he knows it?

Darby has a new video for us. He drives in a white sedan with insults graffiti’d all over it. He picks up fake MJF, they drive around, get in a car accident, but Darby survives it. Darby then uses a Molotov cocktail to set the car on fire! As for Darby’s entrance, he once again has Sting by his side, simply to see him out. The bell rings, they tie up, MJF pie faces then rope-a-dopes. They tie up, and MJF hits a headlock takeover! Cover, ONE, but MJF gets another headlock takeover! Cover, ONE, and MJF gets a third headlock takeover! Cover, ONE, and Darby pie faces MJF now! Darby knows MJF is trying to back up his word but won’t let it be that easy.

They tie up, MJF waistlocks, Darby switches, MJF switches but Darby drop toeholds to get a headlock! MJF slips out and wrenches but Darby rolls to wrench back. MJF rolls, wrenches back, headlocks, but Darby powers out. MJF runs Darby over, fans boo but things speed up. Darby hurdles, runs, but MJF hurdles. Darby shoves MJF, MJF whips Darby but Darby blocks the hip toss to monkey flip, only for MJF to cartwheel through. MJF gloats but Darby whips. MJF reverses but Darby goes up to FLYING ARM-DRAG! MJF drop steps, double knuckle locks and backs Darby down to monkey flip Darby! They’re both down for a double cover, TWO as they bring up one arm.

Another double cover as they rest, TWO as they bring the other arms up. Another double cover, TWO as they both bridge! MJF trips Darby up, rolls back to get the cover, TWO as Darby gets an arm up. MJF pushes that arm down, TWO as the other arm comes up! MJF pushes that arm down, Darby bridges! Then catches MJF for a push up and RANA! Cover, TWO as MJF sunset flips! TWO, and Darby goes for the double knuckle lock cover! TWO, MJF goes to monkey flip again but Darby lands on his feet! And ducks under the blindside! MJF goes up and over, runs the ropes but Darby QUEBRADAS over! Darby arm-drags MJF, MJF arm-drags back, both men handspring up!

Fans are loving this exchange as the two reset! MJF snarls, perhaps learning that Darby is just as technical as him. Darby and MJF circle, tie up, MJF powers Darby back but Darby turns it around in a corner. The ref counts, MJF gets a sucker punch! MJF “apologizes” for that but he drags Darby up to throw him out. MJF goes out after him and CLOBBERS him on the ropes! MJF Fargo struts around, then he goes back to Darby to put him in the ring. “You love it, fat boy! You love it!” But Darby comes back to DIVE! Direct hit and down goes MJF! Darby drags MJF up to RAM him into steel steps! Darby puts MJF back in as fans are fired up and dueling.

Darby CLUBS away on MJF on the apron, then stands on MJF’s neck! The ref counts, Darby steps off, then climbs up the corner. APRON COFFIN DROP only gets apron as MJF moves! Minneapolis loses their minds as Darby crashes ‘n’ burns! MJF gets Darby back in the ring, drops an elbow to Darby’s back, then has a smirk as he covers. TWO, but MJF sits Darby up. MJF jams his knee into Darby’s back and pulls on the arms for a motorcycle stretch. Fans rally, Darby endures, fights up, turns things around, but MJF turns it right back! Darby drops to kangaroo kick! Darby runs, MJF tilt-o-whirls into a TORTURE RACK BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!

Darby writhes but he crawls to a corner. MJF smirks as he storms over and drags Darby up. MJF whips Darby corner to corner hard! Fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF drags Darby back up, whips him corner to corner again and just as hard. MJF soaks up the heat, then he drags Darby up and wrenches before he goes corner to corner again, Darby reverses and now MJF hits hard! Darby staggers up, runs in and back body blocks, but into a waistlock! Darby fights out, but MJF scoops for a BACKBREAKER, then to a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! MJF drags Darby up, back suplexes to a BACKBREAKER! MJF checks his knee but insists he’s fine.

MJF goes back to Darby, stomps him, drags him back up, and CLUBS him in the corner. MJF BITES Darby’s forehead! The ref reprimands, MJF stops then puts Darby up top. MJF climbs up and soaks up the heat, but Darby resists the suplex! Darby BITES MJF’s head! MJF turns around, Darby climbs up, but MJF counters the throwback! But Darby fights out of the tombstone to hit the SUPER THROWBACK STUNNER! Both men are down and fans fire up again! A standing count starts, reaches 5 of 10 before either sits up, but MJF and Darby rise at 6. MJF SLAPS, Darby SLAPS, MJF choke grips but Darby HEADBUTTS!

Darby drags MJF to a drop zone and goes up top! But MJF slowly rolls all the way away. Darby runs in but MJF hits a headlock takeover! Cover, TWO! Darby fights up, powers out, things speed up, Darby jumps but gets caught! POWERBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Darby survives and MJF grows frustrated, but “This is Awesome!” to the fans. MJF kicks Darby but Darby sits up. MJF throws a big left and Darby falls back, only to sit back up! MJF DECKS Darby again, Darby rises again! Darby slaps himself and eggs MJF on with middle fingers. MJF grabs the hands to BITE those fingers! Then he flips Darby around, Darby headbutts, fires off forearms and haymakers!

Darby powers up like the People’s Champion, but MJF pokes him in the eye! MJF smirks, runs, but Darby dropkicks a leg out! Darby keeps moving, hops on, but no Code Red, MJF makes it a wicked POWERBOMB!! High stack, TWO!! Darby survives again but MJF gets the legs. MJF steps through to copy Sting, SCORPION DEATHLOCK! Darby endures, crawls around, MJF drags him from ropes, but Darby grabs a foot! Darby turns MJF around to club away on the leg! Darby trips MJF, steps through, but MJF kicks him away! MJF runs in but Darby dodges to CHOP BLOCK the good leg! MJF clutches his knees and fans rally up again!

MJF drags himself up, Darby runs in but into an elbow. MJF hops up the corner and DOUBLE STOMPS an arm! Darby clutches the elbow and wrist, but MJF clamps on. Darby fights off the takedown to whip MJF. MJF goes up and over but his legs buckle! Darby CHOP BLOCKS from the front! Darby rolls with the leg, and gets the FIGURE FOUR! MJF endures, is down, TWO as MJF sits back up! MJF drags himself and Darby around, reaches out, works to turn the hold, and does! Darby suffers now but he gets the ropebreak! The ref counts, the two separate but both end up on the apron. Darby and MJF both rise, and MJF throws a forearm!

Darby hits back, has the edge as he throws more forearms, then looks tot he floor. Darby brings MJF into position but MJF holds ropes to fight it. Darby gets space but MJF scoops him, APRON TOMBSTONE!?!? But it was double-edged for MJF’s knees! Fans are losing their minds, the ring count is climbing and it’s already 5 of 10! MJF clutches his knees as he sits up at 6, hobbles in at 7, but Darby is still down! Darby stirs at 8, rises at 9, and is in at 9.9!! Darby survives, but MJF is too focused on the pain in his knees to worry about that. MJF hobbles over, drags one leg along, and he drags Darby back up. MJF reels Darby in, suplexes, but Darby fights to make it a cradle! TWO!!

MJF gets to ropes, swings, Darby backslides, TWO! MJF cradles, TWO! Darby cradles, TWO! It’s a battle of cradles, TWO! TWO! They go around and around and around and around and fans are giving it a standing ovation! Wait, Darby has it last, TWO!! MJF hits a headlock takeover! Cover, TWO as Darby headscissors! MJF gets free, Darby runs in to give MJF a headlock takeover! Cover, TWO as MJF rolls it to a cover, TWO! Darby has the headlock takeover cover again, TWO! Darby floats to jackknife, TWO as MJF bridges up and turns! Lift, but Darby turns bomb into CODE RED! Cover, TWO?!? No one can believe this but everyone is loving it!

Fans chant for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this as just the opener! Darby drags MJF back to a drop zone, goes up the corner, but isn’t that kinda far…? MJF bails out anyway, so Darby simply changes targets! SUPER COFFIN DROP to the floor!! Fans lose their minds all over again as Darby puts MJF back in. Darby goes back up, COFFIN DROP onto knees!! A double-edged move for MJF but it saved him in the end! Fans are thunderous as they rally and even duel during the standing count. But wait, here comes The Pinnacle! BUt Sting CLOBBERS Wardlow and Shawn Spears with the bat! The Icon ain’t letting them help MJF, and he even SMACKS Spears with his own chair!

Sting uses the bat on Wardlow while Darby O’Conner Rolls! TWO, MJF has it but with tights! TWO, SUPERKICK! MJF drops and clutches his knee but fans hope these two “Fight Forever!” Not really possible with the half hour time limit and the rest of the show having to happen. MJF hobbles out of the ring, over to the timekeeper’s area, and he gets Darby’s skateboard! The ref reprimands, but MJF still aims at Darby with the board! Wait, he sets it down and scoots it to Darby? He dares Darby to smash him open with the board?! MJF wants Darby to embrace the anger but throw the match! Darby aims, but hands the board to the ref. So MJF brings out the DIAMOND RING!

DYNAMITE DIAMOND PUNCH!! And then a headlock takeover!! Cover, MJF WINS!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall

No wonder MJF kept fidgeting with his tights throughout this match! His ace in the hole was down there! MJF cheats to back up his words, but will there be no low this man won’t sink to? Will Darby let this underhanded tactic go unpunished?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Lucha Brothers VS FTR w/ Tully Blanchard!

Speaking of cheated, Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero Miedo were blatantly cheated out of their AAA Tag Team Championships by “Los Super Ranas,” aka Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood in costumes.

INCREDIBLE! The Bucks let Hangman win this one! Does this mean their friendship could be mended? Speaking of friends, The Dark Order come out to celebrate with the new champion! What does this new era mean for Hangman and AEW?


My Thoughts:

What an AWESOME night for AEW! Almost every single match was as good as it could be. I say “almost” because it seemed like the Women’s Championship match took a moment to get on the right pace or something. But in the end, Britt did win, but Conti did give her a run for her money. The other thing was the Street Fight starting like it was a normal tag. Any tag match that is No Disqualifications should just be a Tornado Tag from the start. But that was some awesome stuff, even from Junior Dos Santos and Andrei Arlovski. Lambert was playing his part as the goober perfectly, and how great for Jericho to honor Eddie Guerrero with how he won that match.

On a related note, how awesome to see Jay Lethal make his way to AEW. A part of me always felt he was too big for ROH given ROH has itself not been able to become any bigger than it is right now. Lethal VS Sammy is going to be a great TNT Championship match, and no offense to Sammy, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Lethal took that belt off him already. But honestly, I’m not sure what else I can say about the rest of the card other than it was great. There wasn’t as much “Cody teasing his turn” in his tag match, and I’m surprised his team won. Of course, it was Pac getting the pin, but… And then I still feel like this partnership with The Pinnacle could see Andrade usurp that faction from MJF.

MJF VS Darby was an awesome opener for how it was so technical, and then we got the “overbooking” of Sting brawling with Spears and Wardlow. And of course MJF finds a way to not only win but win the way he promised. Punk VS Kingston was also a show stealer of a match, with Punk playing more with blurring Heel and Face than Cody did tonight. Punk winning still makes sense, he’s on this slow burn to the top. And how awesome for Hangman to become champion. I said that he was meant to at All Out and this was making it up to him, and boy did they make it up to him. I even love that, as I’d hoped, the Bucks would show up but not interfere. They might have even given their blessing! This is going to be an awesome third year for AEW!

My Score: 9.6/10

The Firm’s #TAIGASTYLE strikes, but MJF is mad?! MJF tells Moriarty that he did NOT order that. This is Moriarty going against MJF’s orders! Stokely Hathaway comes out, eating a pear, and he holds out MJF’s Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF says he doesn’t want it like this, but Stokely tells him to just do it!

MJF takes the ring, puts it on, and Moriarty sits Yuta up. Fans boo but here comes Regal! Regal puts on the BRASS KNUCKLES! Stokely and Moriarty bail as fans chant for Regal. Regal gets in the ring with MJF, dares him to use the ring on him. Fans tell MJF that “YOU F’D UP!” MJF tells Regal he’s not gonna do this, and he storms off. Was this a moment of MJF having a change of heart? Is that even possible?

 

AEW looks at the THREE YEARS of history behind tonight’s main event.

Chris Jericho brought together a group known as The Inner Circle: himself, Santana, Ortiz, Jake Hager, and Sammy Guevara. The young Spanish God has been Jericho’s protégé since the beginning of Dynamite. On the other side, Daniel Garcia came in with “2Point0,” Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker, while The American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, came in alone to shake up the foundation of AEW. Bryan told Jon Moxley, “What if we took someone like Wheeler Yuta under our wing? What if we took someone like Daniel Garcia away from 2Point0?” That was the beginning of the Blackpool Combat Club.

As for Jericho, his Inner Circle soon fell apart, because Santana & Ortiz didn’t “appreciate” Jericho. But Hager and Guevara stayed by Jericho’s side in the Jericho Appreciation Society, which took in Garcia & 2Point0. Then cut to Anarchy in the Arena, the bloodiest faction warfare in AEW history, and perhaps in all of professional wrestling. Or perhaps, in sports entertainment. The JAS came out the winners as Jericho and Hager took Bryan out together. But Bryan didn’t stay away long, and he had a battle with Garcia. This started planting a seed in Garcia’s head, and Jericho questioned Garcia’s loyalties.

Bryan VS Garcia II went the American Dragon’s way and that infuriated Jericho. Garcia didn’t appreciate Jericho ruining the moment, but then Garcia had his own moment by taking Wheeler Yuta’s ROH Pure Championship. Jericho would do the same to Claudio Castagnoli and the ROH World Championship, but in a far less honorable way. Bryan made one more plea to Garcia that he could be BCC, but Jericho told him to shut up! Jericho has vowed to “desecrate” ROH and what it stands for. Will he do just that as he takes on the pro-wrestlers, Bryan Danielson & Daniel Garcia?

 

Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone says that showdown of BCC VS JAS is in tonight’s main event. Matthew Menard shouts at the camera, “Daniel Garcia! After everything we have been through together, you wanna spit in our face and team with Bryan Danielson? No problem! But you take a gift, a gift that this man (Chris Jericho) gave you, that hat, and throw it on the ground?!” Hager sure likes the hat. Angelo Parker says they walked into AEW together. 2Point0 loves Garcia. He is family! But it seems Garcia has lost his way.

Jericho says Garcia is a petulant child who sticks his finger in the light socket even though he’s been told not to. But that’s okay. It is that rebellious nature that brought him to the JAS. But Garcia needs to remember that every trick he was taught, he was taught by them. They taught him how to be a great sports entertainer. Schiavone says, “You’re talking about systematic cheating, right?” To-may-to, to-mah-to, Schiavone. Lessons will be taught, lessons will be learned, and Jericho just hopes Garcia makes the right decision. Sammy shouts, “And if you don’t…! We’re gonna end you.”

Jericho says, “Speaking of ending, Bryan, tonight is gonna be a taste of what you’re gonna get in Toronto. I’m gonna desecrate the legacy of ROH. I’m gonna leave Toronto as the Ring of Jericho Champion, and still be the Ocho.” Jericho has issued his title match challenge to Bryan Danielson, but will he end up losing here tonight?

 

Darby Allin VS Jay Lethal!

The Relentless One dared this former ROH World Champion to do things truly 1v1 with no one in their corners, and surprisingly, the challenge was accepted! Will Darby prove he is worthy of gold in time for Full Gear? Or will it be a Lethal Injection that puts the rising star down?

The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Lethal and Darby tie up, Lethal gets around to a waistlock but Darby switches. Lethal switches back, Darby switches again, Lethal switches again, but then Darby slips away. Fans cheer the standoff as the two reset. Darby and Lethal tie up, Darby headlocks, but Lethal slips through and wrenches into a headlock of his own. Darby pries free, headlocks back and hits the takeover. Lethal headscissors, Darby moves around to get free and get the headlock back, but Lethal back suplexes. Darby lands on his feet, Lethal arm-drags him down, but Darby shifts around to get the headlock back!

Lethal fights up as fans rally, and Lethal wrenches free. Lethal wrenches, wrenches, hammerlocks, but Darby reaches back. Fans rally and duel, Darby hammerlocks, but Lethal spins. Darby spins with him to keep the hammerlock, and then again! Lethal runs to ropes to throw Darby out. Darby hurries back in as Lethal slides out, and Darby eggs Lethal on. Lethal rushes in but Darby sidesteps. Lethal hooks Darby to whip, but Darby goes up, steadies himself and springboards for a FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Darby sweeps and covers, ONE! The two stand off again and fans cheer. Darby smirks and he offers a handshake.

Lethal considers it, but he kicks low! Lethal whips Darby to a corner, runs in but Darby goes up and over. Darby comes back to monkey flip but Lethal handsprings through. Lethal comes back to monkey flips but Darby lands on his feet! Darby stops from running into the ref, only to turn around into a dropkick to the legs! Lethal looms over Darby, drags him around by the bad leg, and isolates the leg to stomp the knee! And then springboard STOMP it! Darby clutches his leg and crawls away but Lethal KICKS Darby’s leg into the corner. Lethal drags Darby up for a SHIN BREAKER! Darby hobbles back but Lethal stands him up.

Lethal whips corner to corner but Darby falls over halfway! Fans rally and duel as Lethal stalks Darby. Darby kicks out Lethal’s legs! Lethal falls right into the GUILLOTINE! Darby pulls on the head but Lethal fights up. Darby body scissors to add on but Lethal CLUBS away on the back leg! Lethal suplexes, but Darby slips around to a REVERSE DDT! Not quite a Scorpion Death Drop but still effective! Darby crawls to a cover, TWO! Fans rally as AEW goes picture in picture.

Darby and Lethal slowly rise, and Darby fires off forearms! Lethal wobbles, Darby runs the ropes, but Lethal CHOP BLOCKS Darby off the ropes! Darby crashes down and Lethal paces. Lethal grabs the leg, drops elbow after elbow on the knee, and then keeps dropping more elbows! Lethal lets off after TEN elbows, and fans fire up. Lethal looms over Darby, covers, TWO! Lethal looms over Darby again, drags him up, and suplexes, only for Darby to cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, and he CLOBBERS Darby! Lethal catches his breath, drags Darby by the bad leg and puts that leg on the ropes. The ref reprimands, so Lethal drags Darby from the ropes.

Lethal drops another elbow on the knee! Darby claws at Lethal but Lethal pulls back on a toehold! Darby endures while AEW goes to break.

Dynamite returns and the ref counts as Lethal digs his boot into Darby’s leg. Lethal lets off at 4, goes to the far corner, and he waits on Darby to get up. Fans rally, Darby drags himself up and Lethal runs in. Lethal blocks Darby’s boots, hooks the bad leg in the ropes, and STOMPS the leg down! Darby hobbles, Lethal reels him in, GERMAN SUPLEX! Darby writhes and clutches his leg again but fans still rally. Lethal puts Darby up top, CLUBS the bad leg again and again, then climbs up to join Darby. Fans duel, Darby throws body shots, and then he ROCKS Lethal with a forearm! Darby stands up, but Lethal grabs the bad leg.

Darby CLUBS away on Lethal, but Lethal SUPER DRAGON SCREWS! And then gets the legs, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR! Darby endures and fans “WOO~!” as Lethal puts on the pressure. Darby swipes at Lethal but can’t reach. Darby reaches for the ropes now, fans rally as he crawls and drags Lethal with him, but Lethal drags Darby away! Lethal puts on as much pressure as he can, but Darby turns things over and gets the ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets off in frustration and Darby goes to a corner. Lethal runs in, but into an elbow! Darby hops up the corner to get a boost, but Lethal denies the Throwback!

Darby’s leg jams and he hobbles, Lethal runs to handspring! LETHAL- NO, Darby table tops the Injection! Lethal sits up, Darby hops on, CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Lethal survives and fans fire up again. But wait, there’s Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh! They honored the request until now, and now they’re storming down to ringside! Darby climbs a corner but sees Sonjay, and then Lethal trips Darby up! Sonjay cheers but Lethal tells him and Satnam to go to the back. Lethal says he has this 1v1, but then Darby runs in to RANA! Darby has the cover, TWO! Lethal sunsets but Darby rolls through to come back with a prawn hold! Lethal rolls through that, but Darby sunsets!

Lethal rolls through the sunset to push Darby to one, only for Darby to roll through and step through! LAST SUPPER! DARBY WINS!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Sonjay & Satnam showed up, and maybe that cost Lethal! Lethal is frustrated, but Darby wants him to hold on. Darby is telling Lethal that he’s better than Sonjay & Satnam. Darby wants to shake hands on this, and fans chant “YES! YES!” Lethal is conflicted but Darby gives him a shove. Lethal shakes Darby’s hand! The only ones not happy about it are Sonjay & Satnam! But will they just have to accept that Lethal actually has some honor?

 

AEW looks closely at The Embassy.

Prince Nana says, “The day has come, my friends.” Originally under Tully Blanchard Enterprises, Prince Nana bought the managing rights to the Gates of Agony, Toa Liona & Kaun, and The Machine, Brian Cage. The Embassy is back, and the GOA will come after every single piece of gold in every single tag team division! And as for the TNT Championship… Brian Cage keeps hearing that this is somehow his comeback. It’s not a comeback, this is his arrival! And while Wardlow has had a hell of a year, that changes tonight, because he faces The Machine, the Swolverine!

And after tonight, Cage adds one more name to the list: The NEW AEW TNT Champion. “The answer to the question, ‘Who’s better than Brian Cage?’ is still, ‘Nobody.'” Nana tells everyone that you know the song: We in the money~! We in the money~! But will they be singing that song all the way to the bank?

AEW TNT Championship: Wardlow VS Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana!

The Clash of the Titans will have nothing on this! The Maestro of Mayhem has been conducting Powerbomb Symphonies week in and week out, but now he runs into a man very much his physical equal. Will the Machine not survive the war that’s coming? Or will this be the night the music died?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and in DC, THIS IS WAAAR~!

Fans rally up for “WARD~LOW!” as he stares down with Cage. Cage ROCKS Wardlow, powers him back and fires off in the corner!

Wardlow ends up on ropes, Cage dials it up!? 619- NO!! Wardlow blocks the call, for a WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! Fans are fired up for Wardlow, but Nana is shouting at Cage to get up!

Wardlow goes to a corner and Nana says to finish this!

AEW goes picture in picture and Cage goes to Wardlow. Cage digs his boot in, the ref counts and Cage lets off. Cage mocks the fans clapping for Wardlow, and he runs in side to side for a BOOT WASH!

The ROH World Tag Team Champions storm right up to the ring, and now The Embassy bails out! Things are even now, and that’s not good for them!

Nana wants Toa & Kaun to stand down but fans are thunderous for Cash & Dax. The Embassy retreat, but will the Gates of Agony look to take away those ROH belts from the three-belt champs?

 

Britt Baker speaks.

“Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, as the Face of the AEW Women’s Division but most importantly, as a Role Model, I feel morally obligated to answer the question that everybody’s been asking. And the answer is no, Saraya will NOT be wrestling in AEW. The doctors have NOT medically cleared her to compete. So let’s ship her off in some bubble wrap and send her on her way. But I guess that officially makes this my house now, right? Yours Truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.”

 

Six Woman Tag: Toni Storm, Willow Nightingale & Athena w/ Saraya VS Jamie Hayter, Serena Deeb & Penelope Ford w/ Britt Baker, Rebel & Kip Sabian!

A revolution has come to the AEW Women’s Division, and with the backing of the former WWE Diva’s Champion, the Interim AEW Women’s World Champion leads another battle against the Forces of Britt Baker! But will having Saraya’s support help Storm, Willow & Athena win the night? Or will someone score themselves a shortcut to a title match instead?

The trios sort out and Willow starts against Hayter in a rematch from last week’s Rampage. They circle, fans rally for both, but then Hayter tags out to Mrs. Superbad. Willow tags to Athena so Athena and Ford circle. Things speed up, Athena hurdles then drops but Ford leaps over. Ford comes back to tilt-o-whirl headscissor, but Athena handsprings through! Fans cheer as Athena and Ford reset. Ford runs in but into a sweep! Athena SHOTGUNS Ford down, then drags her up. Athena wrenches, whips, but Ford goes up the corner to BOOT back. Ford leaps but Athena catches her for a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!

Athena drags Ford up with a facelock but Ford RAMS her into the corner. Ford RAMS again, lets off, and both Hayter and Deeb hold Athena in place for the handspring back elbow! Tag to Deeb and fans cheer the Professor of Pro-Wrestling. Deeb EuroUppers, takes Athena off her feet, then fires up. Deeb whips Athena to ropes, Athena ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Tag to Storm, and she SHOTGUNS Deeb down! Storm drags Deeb up and TOSSES her across the way! Storm wrenches, CLUBS away on Deeb, and fans are torn. Britt protests, Saraya tells her to shush, and Storm runs to BOOT Deeb down!

Storm drags Deeb up, whips her to a corner, then runs in to uppercut! Storm holds Deeb in place, Hayter protests but the ref is busy with her so Athena gets in to forearm smash! Willow gets in to back body block! Storm HIP ATTACKS! Storm then drags Deeb up to reel her in. Hayter distracts again but Storm DECKS her, then DECKS Ford for good measure. But Deep CHOP BLOCKS Storm! Deeb rains down fists and fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref reprimands but Deeb lets off. Deeb glares at Athena and takes a swipe, then stands Storm up. Deeb EuroUppers, Storm staggers, and Deeb brings her around to bump off buckles. Deeb stomps a mudhole into Storm, then tags Ford. Ford pushes Storm back in to stomp a mudhole of her own! Tag to Hayter and she stomps away on Storm! The ref counts, Hayter lets off to drag Storm up into a snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Hayter hurries to keep Storm from her team and bumps her off buckles! Storm is down, Hayter tags Ford, and Ford drags Storm up to put on ropes. Ford CHOKES Storm and thrashes around, but lets off as the ref counts 4.

Ford argues with the ref but this is a distraction so Britt can CHOKE Storm! Britt lets off before she’s caught, and then Ford YANKS Storm into the ropes! Storm falls over, Ford drags her up again and wrenches to a wristlock. Tag to Hayter, she goes up and drops AX HANDLES on the bad arm! Hayter drags Storm up, tags Ford back in, and Ford goes up to drop AX HANDLES! Ford brings Storm around, tags Deeb, they mug Storm and Deeb brings Storm around to snapmare. Deeb wraps Storm up in a straitjacket stretch as Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally and Storm fights up to arm-drag free!

Storm stands to fire forearms on Deeb! Deeb goes low to get the takedown, and GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Storm clutches her leg while Deeb DECKS Willow! Athena avoids a shot, but Deeb hooks up Storm’s legs in a deathlock. Athena runs in, Deeb kicks her first, but Athena fights the suplex. Willow runs in but so does Hayter, and Hayter kicks Willow. STEREO SUPLEXES with the SNAP LOCK on the side! Fans cheer, they acknowledge that was good stuff. Deeb tags Ford, she drags Storm away, but Storm kicks her away! Ford tags Deeb ack in, and Deeb grabs Storm’s leg! Storm ENZIGURIS Deeb, hot tags to Hayter and Willow!

Fans fire up as Willow dodges and LARIATS Hayter! And ELBOWS! And BOOTS! Willow snarls, drags Hayter up to whip, and she hits a SPINEBUSTER! High stack, Deeb breaks it! Deeb stomps Willow, drags Hayter over and tags in. Deeb brings Willow up to throw uppercuts! Deeb CHOKES Willow on the ropes but the ref counts. Deeb lets off, Rebel talks trash and brings out a crutch! But Saraya snatches it! And then she swings on Rebel and Britt! Fans fire up, Deeb is distracted, and Willow cradles her! TWO! Deeb runs, Willow gets around to push and POUNCE! Fans fire up with Willow but Deeb tags Ford!

Ford runs in but into a scoop! Ford slips off to HEEL KICK! Willow goes down, but Athena reels Ford in for a Canadian Rack, CLIFFHANGER CODE BREAKER! Deeb SPEARS Athena! Storm SHOTGUNS Deeb! Hayter runs in, for an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER to Storm! Willow rises to SUPERKICK Hayter! Ford returns, goes Matrix to doge and CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Willow survives! Ford drags Willow up, runs to handspring, but Willow SHOTGUNS her while upside-down! Willow hauls Ford up, gut wrenches and DOCTOR BOMBS!! Cover, WILLOW’S TEAM WINS!

Winner: Toni Storm, Willow Nightingale & Athena, by pinfall

But Britt gets in to ruin the celebration because she gets in Saraya’s face. Britt keeps talking trash about if Saraya ain’t cleared, she doesn’t need to be here. But Saraya ROCKS Britt! Fans fire up as the brawl is on!! Hayter, Deeb, Ford and even Rebel get in, the brawl explodes! DC is loving this! Saraya TOSSES Britt out, and now she has Rebel all to herself! Rebel begs for mercy, but she gets a BOOT instead! Saraya shouts, “This is MY house!” Will Saraya prove to Britt that she can still go?

 

Backstage interview with Rush, Jose & Private Party.

Tony Schiavone notes that El Toro Blanco is taking on The Cowboy, Hangman Adam Page tonight, but it seems Jose The Assistant has “called the troops together.” And he did so because while Private Party showed up for work tonight, they haven’t been showing up in the ring. Jose has clips to prove it. Last week, Rush and Hangman brawling, but NO Private Party backing Rush up. Then the week before that, when Rush led The Butcher & The Blade in that blindside of Hangman, still no Private Party! Jose promises that Rush will blast Hangman again tonight. Rush tells Private Party to “do the right thing tonight!”

Jose lets Private Party know that they know Matt Hardy’s been talking with them. They better choose the right side in this. Jose and Rush leave, but will Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy do what’s right? Or will they do what La Faccion Ingobernables wants?

 

The Acclaimed head to the ring!

Fans are fired up as there’s balloons and a podium. Max Caster has the mic, so “Yo! Listen! Acclaimed on the mic, what I’m saying is hot. Even in the senators are insider trading our stock. We will never be approved like a home loan. We did it on our own cuz we homegrown! Even Joe Biden is lovin’ it. He said, ‘Scissor me timbers,’ and didn’t even stutter it! Yo, we put ’em away. Hands up cuz it’s National Scissoring Day!” Bowens gets the mic to say, “WASHINGTON DEEEE CEEEEE! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Fans fire up and sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” as the champs go to the podium.

Bowens says he is glad they’re singing that, cuz Daddy loves to scissor! But Washington, D.C, welcome to the very first ever National Scissoring Day celebration! It is a very special night, unlike anything in our great sport’s history, and it is brought to you by The Acclaimed, the most popular team in ALL of professional wrestling! Caster adds, “That’s right!” The winningest team in AEW! That’s right! The best damn homegrown team in AEW history! THAT’S RIGHT! And today, it was made official thanks to every single fan. The “Scissor Me Daddy Ass” T-Shirt is the NUMBER ONE BEST SELLER IN 2022!!

Bowens says most importantly, The Acclaimed, your #ForeverChamps, have brought home gold! That means AEW no longer stands for All Elite Wrestling. No, it stands for ACCLAIMED EVERY WEDNESDAY! But now, this is cause for celebration, and the Acclaimed celebrate by scissoring. Bowens knows a thing or two about that. They used to Babe Ruth the Sultan of Swat, so you can call Anthony Bowens the Sultan of Scissors! And there may be a few of you tuning in for the very first time tonight because National Scissoring Day was trending all day long. Let’s break it down for you. Scissoring is a handshake, a sign of friendship, and a sign of true teamwork.

The Acclaimed understand that the people want to be represented by a real team. “Not two dudes who were thrown together like Keith Lee and Sneaky Swerve.” Fans boo to support that point. Bowens says “Sneaky Swerve” would like us to believe that he and Keith deserve to be AEW Tag Team Champions. Sneaky Swerve would like us to believe that he and Keith are the most popular tag team in the industry. But they’re WRONG! EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! “Swerve, this isn’t your house.” Billy Gunn takes over here and says, “This is Daddy Ass’s house! Now for everybody in the building, and the millions…” “AND MILLIONS!” “… of people at home, it’s National Scissoring Day!”

That said, Billy was sent down to City Hall today, because he’s a big deal, and he was asked to present The Acclaimed with this. Billy brings out a big package wrapped in gold. Could it be…? The Acclaimed unwrap the package and… it’s the SCISSORS TO THE CITY! Y’know, like you see when someone has to cut a big ribbon. Bowens is all fired up, but he’s running with scissors! Billy tells him don’t do that. Bowens apologizes, and Caster goes to the podium. “Folks, at this point in the service, we’d like everybody to turn to your right and your left to offer a sign of peace to your neighbor via scissoring. Peace be with you, Anthony.” The Acclaimed scissor finger and the fans join in!

“And as National Scissoring Day comes to a close, I wanna talk about greatness. Yeah, guys, I wanna talk about greatness. About 40 years ago, here in this city, Washington DC, greatness was achieved when Washington won the Super Bowl. Yeah. Super Bowl 17. A lot of people here probably don’t remember that. I wasn’t even born yet, but it means a lot to me, because my dad was on that championship team.” Fans cheer for that, and Billy even hugs Caster. Caster continues to say, “And his Super Bowl ring is his prized possession. He wears it proudly to this day. And he achieved greatness here all those years ago, just like The Acclaimed achieved greatness when we won the AEW Tag Team titles.

“But this city represents, also, the ugly side of America, the division in our country. But one thing we can agree on is that everyone loves The Acclaimed.” Fans cheer that! So put your scissors up right now! Cuz it’s their duty to bring everyone together. Today, there is no Left or Right, no blue or red. “The Acclaimed wears pink, and everyone looks good in pink, baby! We are the People’s Choice, we are the People’s Voice, and we’re gonna make history here tonight. We’re gonna do the first-ever bipartisan scissor to unite this country. Let’s do it!” Fans fire up as the trio puts up the fingers… “Whose House?” Swerve Strickland is here to rain on the parade!

Fans boo but Swerve has a mic to say, “This is the most idiotic thing I’ve ever seen. Oh, congratulations on your whole number one selling T-shirt on AEWShop.com. Congratulations, Billy. Now some more kids can go to school and get suspended again in this decade like they did two ago. These are your tag champ role models you want for your children? These guys, right? Y’know what? Those two tag team championships shouldn’t even be on your shoulders, they should both be on Billy’s, because if it wasn’t for you, Swerve In Our Glory would still be tag team champions.”

Fans boo but Swerve says that for him and Keith to get back to what they do, they gotta get back to business. That means taking Billy out. So next week, in Toronto, it’ll be “Daddy Ass” himself, Billy Gunn stepping into whose house? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” And it’ll be one-on-one. And don’t even think about bringing those two fingers up in Swerve’s face. You do that, Swerve will make sure Billy never uses that hand again. Because we all know rock beats scissors every day. Swerve even has a rock in his hand! But wait, Mark Sterling is storming out here? Sterling says, “I don’t wanna say I told you so, but I told you so! Paper covers rock, pal!”

Sterling brings back his petitions and says he’s been calling out Swerve for being a jerk for months! No one was listening, but Sterling expects that from the “idiots” in the crowd and watching at home. But the Acclaimed should wanna hear him out. They need Sterling. Fans boo that. But Sterling says they need him to beat Swerve because they can’t do it themselves. We saw Grand Slam, there was some controversy. So let’s all join together so Sterling can represent them in the fight against Swerve, and seal the deal tonight! Let’s give the people what they want, and that is the three of them scissoring Sterling! What?

Sterling turns around into a CHOP! And then Billy scoops to SLAM Sterling! Caster and Billy open Sterling up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS!! Swerve rolls his eyes and leaves but Billy says wait! Before Swerve leaves, Billy ACCEPTS! Next week, Toronto Dynamite, Swerve VS Billy! But okay, Swerve can leave now, because The Acclaimed has just one more thing to do. They… SCISSOR!! But will Swerve Strickland crush Daddy Ass when Dynamite goes north?

 

AEW looks at The Dark Order VS Death Triangle!

Alex Reynolds says that this Friday will be bittersweet. It’s the second anniversary of Mr. Brodie Lee’s last ever match, but also the night that the Dark Order beats Death Triangle to become NEW AEW World Trios Champions! But PAC responds by telling Dark Order that while their “recipe” is fine, Death Triangle’s “ingredients are just a little bit more premium.” Preston Vance says, “What better way to win the Trios Championships than on the anniversary of Brodie Lee’s last match.” Penta El Zero Miedo says Death Triangle is the best trio in the universe, because they have CERO MIEDO!

John Silver mocks Pac’s accent when he says The Dark Order is coming for the Trios Championships! Not bad. But will it really be the Dark Order’s time to shine when Death Triangle is on a Rampage?

 

Backstage interview with Madison Rayne & Skye Blue.

Schiavone introduces the coach of the AEW Women’s Division, and she says it has been great being here. In the few months she’s been here, she’s seen endless potential in the division, particularly in Skye. Skye is truly a rising star and she’s becoming quite the wrestler. But TayJay, Tay Melo & Anna Jay “A S,” walk over and say this is a joke. Madison, as Skye’s coach? What Skye really needs is a sports entertainment coach, to give Skye charisma, personality and flair. Skye says for once, TayJay might be right. She could work on her “charisma” while they can work on their wrestling. But uh, there’s two and two, and then Rampage this Friday. What do they say?

Tay says that’s perfect! Because as Jericho always says, sports entertainer always beat pro-wrestlers. TayJay head and Madison copies Matthew Menard by saying, “It’s gonna be enter-tening.”

 

Hangman Page VS Rush w/ Jose!

The Cowboy and El Toro Blanco were the last two in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal, and in the end, Hangman won the prize. But things are far from settled between these two, will Hangman also avenge John Silver? Or will he get the horns before ever making it to the title match?

The bell rings and fans are thunderous already for “COWBOY S*IT!” Rush rushes in, Hangman dodges and fires hands. Rush gives them back, they brawl and fans fire up! Rush ROCKS Hangman but Hangman comes back to CHOP! Rush CHOPS, Hangman CHOPS, and now it’s a CHOP fight! Rush fires up and eggs Hangman on so Hangman CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Hangman shakes out his hand, runs, but Rush blasts past, gets around and waistlocks. Hangman switches but Rush switches back to shove Hangman away. Hangman goes up and out to the apron but Rush rolls back to tranquilo!

Jose anchors Hangman’s foot! Rush then rushes in to DECK Hangman! Rush goes out after Hangman to drag him up and RAM him into railing! Rush brings Hangman around to SMACK off the chair in the corner, then he drags Hangman up again. Jose distracts the ref so Rush can use the camera cable to LASH Hangman! And then CHOKE him! The ref sees something’s up and reprimands, Rush lets off at 4. Rush soaks up the heat then drags Hangman up to RAM into more railing! Rush keeps on Hangman as AEW goes picture in picture.

Rush RAMS Hangman into steel steps! The ref reprimands, Rush puts Hangman in the ring and he soaks up more heat. Rush gets in as Hangman goes to a corner, and Rush looms over him. Rush drags Hangman up, CHOPS him, then ROCKS him with a forearm. Rush whips corner to corner, runs in and KNEES Hangman, then snapmares him down for a basement dropkick! Hangman writhes but Rush tranquilos again. Rush soaks up more heat from DC, then stalks Hangman to another corner. Hangman CHOPS back, so Rush CHOPS. Hangman CHOPS, Rush CHOPS, the CHOP fight is back!

Rush ROCKS Hangman with a right, sits Hangman down in the corner and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Rush lets off and “apologizes,” but Jose CHOKES Hangman behind the ref’s back! Rush pretends he can’t hear the ref, and Jose lets off before he gets caught. Rush stomps Hangman more, then drags him up to slingshot suplex! Rush CHOKES Hangman but the ref counts. Rush lets off and “apologizes,” but then he tells the fans to shut up. Rush goes back to Hangman, kicks him around, but Hangman throws body shots! Rush KICKS Hangman down, then stomps him more! Rush pretends to take Hangman’s head off and kick it into the crowd.

Dynamite returns to single picture, and Hangman throws hands! Rush ROCKS Hangman, whips him to ropes, but Hangman reverses. Rush ducks ‘n’ dodges to CROSSBODY, but into Hangman’s FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman fires up with the kip up! Fans fire up, but Rush kips up to ROCK Hangman! Rush soaks up the heat, and MJF is backstage with his poker chip. Rush KICKS Hangman, whips him corner to corner, but Rush runs in to be put on the apron. Hangman triangle jump LARIATS! Fans fire up as Hangman then aims to PLANCHA! Direct hit and down goes Rush! Fans fire up as Hangman drags Rush up and into the ring.

Hangman catches his breath and fans rally up behind him. Hangman slides in, Rush runs in but Hangman dodges! Rush leaps, into a fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Rush is still in this but fans rally behind Hangman. Rush goes to a corner, Hangman storms over and he gives scuffing kicks. Hangman eggs Rush, Rush gets up and Hangman CHOPS! Rush choke grips Hangman but Hangman throws forearms. Rush doesn’t budge and he eggs Hangman on, so the forearms come in! Rush ROCKS Hangman back! Hangman sits in the corner, Rush stomps away on him, then stands on his shoulders! The ref counts, but Hangman powers up!

Hangman lifts Rush as he stands on the shoulders! Hangman then gets Rush in position, POWERBOMB! Hangman goes right into the jackknife bridge, TWO!! Rush survives again but fans rally for Hangman. Hangman snarls and goes to the apron. He throws off the elbow pads, but Rush runs in! Hangman ROCKS Rush first, but Jose anchors Hangman again! Hangman kicks Jose away, slingshots, BUCK- HEADBUTT! JUMP KNEE! And then the tuck, for a STRAITJACKET PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!!! Hangman survives and shocks Rush! But Rush tastes his own blood coming from a busted nose, and he revels in it!

Hangman goes to a corner, Rush takes aim and goes corner to corner! Rush runs in, but Hangman LARIATS! Hangman reloads, slingshots, BUCKSHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

The Cowboy puts the bull away and is heading to Cincinnati with momentum! But wait, Private Party heads out! Are they going to do “the right thing?” Wait! Here comes MOXLEY! The AEW World Champion isn’t gonna let Quen & Kassidy rough up his challenger. Moxley gets a mic and gets in the ring as Private Party backs away. Moxley and Hangman go forehead to forehead, and Moxley says, “I’ve been waiting for this for three years. Three years of AEW Dynamite. Three years of watching you, three years of studying you because I knew this was coming. Three years of us circling each other. Between the two of us, we’ve beaten just about everybody there is to beat here in AEW. Except each other.

“On October 18th, at the Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, my home arena, the arena I literally grew up in… For real, I used to smoke and drink under the bridge outside.” But on that Tuesday night, Moxley and Hangman will be one last man standing here in AEW. In 13 days, Cowboy, Moxley leaves his house, walks down the street, shows up at Heritage Bank Center, and will break Hangman’s face. Moxley will choke Hangman until he turns blue, because he is in the way of Moxley being the one true top guy in AEW, of being the world champion, and of being THE best in the world!

“And I’ve all the respect in the world for your abilities, I have all the respect in the world for your talents. I admire you as a person. But when that bell rings, with the world championship on the line, I ain’t got any gaddamn respect for anything.” Hangman takes the mic and says, “If you’ve been waiting for this so long, where the hell are you going right now?” Fans like the sound of that! Moxley gets back in the ring, fans chant for “COWBOY SH*T!” but Moxley says, “You’re a sweet kid. And like a lot of kids around here, you say a bunch of bulls*it and your mouth gets you in trouble. I’m gonna let you off the hook just once. But this is your final warning. You’ve got 13 days. You watch your damn mouth.”

Moxley leaves, having put it in simple terms. But MJF is smiling as he watches this backstage. Whether it’s Maniac or Cowboy, will The Devil come to collect from the winner?

 

Backstage interview with Willow Nightingale.

Schiavone says that was a big win tonight as Willow got the pin, her career is on the upswing. Willow thanks Schiavone for that, she is stoked! But she’s more than just “happy to be here,” she is on a roll! At Battle of the Belts, she wants to challenge for the AEW TBS Championship! Uh, what? The Baddies barge in and give Willow trash. Willow shoves Leila & Kiera back, but Jade says, “What? I already beat you like, twice.” Singles and tag! So it seems Willow just wants to be #39. Willow says Jade may have beaten her twice, but how about a third? Jade’s sure confident that she’ll go 39-0, but no one is undefeated forever! So what if Jade actually does go 38-1, and it’s Willow who is “The One!?”

Willow looks at the title then takes her leave. Will she be the one to leave with that title on Friday? Or will Willow’s roll hit a wall?

 

Luchasaurus w/ Christian Cage VS Fuego Del Sol!

Captain Charisma leads the way for his own personal kaiju, both of them having battered and bruised Jungle Boy after their betrayals. Will Luchasaurus continue to demolish all put in his path? Or will the Fire of the Sun burn down the towering tyrant lizard?

The bell rings, Fuego rushes in, but Luchasaurus catches him with a choke grip! For the CHOKE SLAM! But that’s not enough for Christian, and Luchasaurus drags Fuego up again. Straitjacket, torture rack, EXTINCTION!! Cover, Luchasaurus wins!

Winner: Luchasaurus, by pinfall

Christian is all smiles, but he still wants Luchasaurus to take out the trash. Luchasaurus gut wrenches Fuego to a Crucifix, but HERE COMES JUNGLE BOY! He has a chair and he JAMS Luchasaurus with it! Fuego is spared but JB SMACKS Luchasaurus on the back! Luchasaurus falls out of the ring but is right back up! Christian keeps Luchasaurus from rushing back in at the angry Jack Perry! JB gets a mic to say, “Look at me, you traitor! You were my best friend in the entire world. You were my BEST FRIEND! And after everything that we have been through together, you chose him. And you broke my heart.”

JB takes a moment before he continues. “But now, I am going to break your fingers. I am going to break your nose. I am going to break your arm! I am going to break you piece by miserable piece until I break YOU! You pick the time and you pick the place, I’ll be ready.” Christian snatches the mic to say, “I told you not to come back this week, Jungle Boy. And it’ll be just as easy for us to step into this ring, drop you, and leave you in a pool of your own piss and blood. But y’know what? You got me thinking here. You said we pick the time and place? Well we’re in your nation’s capital of Washington, DC. And apparently I’m the only honest person in Washington, DC, because I can tell you right now, that match will not be happening in this cesspool in front of these losers!”

Fans boo but Christian says the time is next week on Dynamite! The place is Christian’s hometown of Toronto! Will Jungle Boy finally get his revenge in front of Christian’s hometown crowd?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Friday Fight Night!

On top of the AEW World Trios Championship match of Death Triangle VS Dark Order, the match of Skye Blue & Madison Rayne VS TayJay is official! Plus, the AEW Tag Team Championship contenders race heats up as Smart Mark’s stable of Tony Nese & Josh Woods will take on the Varsity Blonds. Then, after the tense confrontation earlier, Jon Moxley brings the Blackpool Combat Club’s Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli with him to take on Rush & Private Party!

Plus, Battle of the Belts just gets better! First, Jade VS Willow for the AEW TBS Championship is now official! Will Willow become the one in 38-1? And after their own tense confrontation, FTR will defend their ROH World Tag Team Championships against The Embassy’s Gates of Agony, Toa Liona & Kaun! And of course, win or lose from Rampage, Pac defends his All-Atlantic Championship against Trent Beretta! Will #JustTrent be facing a two-belt or one-belt Bastard to close out the night? Speaking of which…

AEW looks closer at PAC VS Trent!

The Bastard says, “Trent Beretta. You’re upset that I hurt your little buddy, are ya? Your ‘best friend.'” Trent says “Pac calls himself a Bastard. I guess it’s cuz he talks in a fake scary voice and he makes mean faces. And he needs to use a hammer to win matches and hurt our friend.” Pac says Cassidy blindsided him and yet Pac’s the bad guy. Trent says this Friday, he gets revenge. And he won’t need a hammer to hurt someone. But Pac says, “I’m a bastard, what did you expect? But at Battle of the Belts, I’ll have no problem hurting you, as well.” Trent says, “NEW All-Atlantic Champ. Hands in, boys.” Chuckie T is there to join in, but will Best Friends be celebrating a vengeful victory?

 

Daniel Garcia & Bryan Danielson VS Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara!

The ROH Pure Champion has been torn between the influence of his hero in The American Dragon and his mentor in The Wizard. He has also been torn between the definitions of a “professional wrestler” and a “sports entertainer,” and which one fits him best. But one thing is for sure, Garcia wants some respect from Jericho, not cheap gifts and cheap tactics! Will Garcia and his hero humble the ROH World Champion and the Spanish God? Or will the Jericho Appreciation Society just sports entertain their way to another cheap victory?

The teams sort out and Garcia starts with Jericho, student against mentor and ROH Pure Champion VS ROH World Champion! Fans chant, “F YOU SAMMY!” while Jericho wants to uphold the Code of Honor. Garcia hopes he’s honest, and shakes Jericho’s hand. Jericho doesn’t try any tricks, they circle, and tie up. Jericho arm-drags Garcia fast and then holds up his hands in victory. Sammy rallies Jericho but Jericho and Garcia tie up. Garcia denies the arm-drag and wags his finger. Jericho rushes in, Garcia gets around to trip Jericho up, floats all over him, and mounts! Fans cheer but Jericho is upset.

Garcia gator rolls Jericho around, floats around again and slaps away on Jericho’s head! Garcia kicks dirt at him, too! Jericho is upset more, and he CHOPS Garcia! Garcia CHOPS back! Jericho CHOPS, Garcia CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Garcia whips, Jericho reverses, and Sammy trips Garcia up! Sammy pretends he didn’t but fans boo. Sammy tags in while Jericho seems hesitant, and Sammy rains down fists! Fans boo but Sammy stops to taunt Bryan. Sammy goes back to Garcia, he drags Garcia up and CLUBS Garcia. Sammy suplexes, Garcia slips out and shoves to dropkick the legs out!

Sammy crawls but Garcia tags Bryan! Bryan dodges Sammy to DROPKICK Jericho! Bryan fires off on Sammy with haymakers, then he EuroUppers Sammy hard in the corner! Bryan KICKS away in the corner, whips Sammy corner to corner, but Sammy reverses, only for Bryan to go up and over! Bryan keeps moving, he ducks Sammy to DIVE onto Jericho! Bryan sees Sammy coming and ROCKS him out of the tope! Bryan goes up top and fans fire up as AEW goes picture in picture!

Sammy staggers, into Bryan’s MISSILE DROPKICK! Bryan kips up and fans fire up. Bryan waits on Sammy to sit up, to give him a KICK! And a KICK! And a KICK! Sammy sits up but into more KICKS! Then the BUZZ- NO, Sammy ducks to roll Bryan up! TWO, into the omoplata! LEBELL LOCK!! Jericho rushes in to BOOT Bryan! The ref reprimands but too late, Jericho tags in. But Bryan drop toeholds Jericho to get the arms! CATTLE MUTILATION! Jericho endures but Bryan tips over to then chicken wing Jericho for a TIGER- NO, Jericho victory rolls through and has the legs! WALLS OF JERICHO!!

Bryan endures now as Jericho sits deep! Garcia gets in but Jericho lets off. The two stare down, but Bryan rolls Jericho up! TWO, and Bryan CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS, Bryan EuroUppers! Bryan fires off more uppercuts, whips Jericho to ropes but Jericho reverses and CLOBBERS Bryan! Jericho then DECKS Garcia with a sucker punch! Jericho seems conflicted after he did it, but he turns around into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Sammy tags in, goes up top and leaps, but Bryan catches him for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Sammy ends up in a corner, Bryan fires up and runs in, to DROPKICK! Sammy wobbles, into Bryan’s BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Dynamite returns to single picture, Excalibur assures us that is the final commercial break, and Bryan climbs up top! Jericho trips Bryan up, Sammy GAMANGIRIS! Sammy goes up top after Bryan, for a SUPER SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and fans rally up, but Sammy rains down fists. Sammy snarls and fires up, and he sits Bryan up for a chinlock. Sammy then pushes Bryan down to stomp. Sammy tags Jericho, they double whip and double shoulder Bryan over! Sammy spins and poses with Jericho, Le Sex Gods are back at it. Jericho drags Bryan up, tags Sammy back in, and Jericho CHOPS!

Jericho and Sammy mug Bryan with haymakers and CHOPS, then Sammy whips. Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges as fans bring back “F YOU SAMMY!” DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide! Both men are down, fans rally up and both men crawl, hot tags to Garcia and Jericho! These two stare down and fans fire up more. But Sammy jumps in, only for Garcia to DECK him outta the sky! Garcia and Jericho stare down again, and the brawl is on! Fans are thunderous as Garcia gets the edge! Garcia stomps a mudhole, the ref counts but Garcia won’t let off so the ref backs him down!

Winners: Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

Another cheap trick and the sports entertainers win! The rest of the JAS comes out to celebrate with them, and of course SamTay kiss. Jericho still seems torn having to do this to his protégé, but is this all the more reason for Garcia to leave the JAS and join the BCC? Can Bryan redeem himself and ROH by taking the world title away from Jericho? Or is the future of ROH nothing but the OCHO?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for AEW to celebrate the Dynamite Anniversary while also serving as a go-home to “Friday Fight Night.” However, with that, the elephant in the room needs to be addressed. After getting at it via Twitter, Sammy and Andrade couldn’t help but throw down backstage in person. Tony Khan sent Andrade home when Sammy’s been the instigator the whole time, but Sammy was scheduled for tonight’s main event so oF CoUrSe SaMmY sTaYs~! I agree with a fan sign I saw tonight: HIRE HR EXPERTS. This shouldn’t be happening to a company that is meant to be the positive alternative to what WWE was under Vince. Ironically, while scraps happened (Jericho oddly being a part of a few), it never went like this with Vince.

But some credit must be given to Tony Khan, him pivoting from the hyped up Mask VS Contract of Vance VS Andrade to a fun AEW World Trios Championship match was good thinking. The Dark Order sadly won’t win, despite it being the anniversary of Brodie Lee’s last match and by proxy, a night to remember his memory, but Vance was likely losing his mask anyway so a bit of a silver lining. Pac and Trent also have a good promo vignette for their 1v1 title match, but I think Pac is sweeping the night. And I think after Pac wins, Ethan Page needs to call him out since that was the story set up weeks ago when Ethan said he wanted that All-Atlantic title.

We got an awesome opener from MJF and Yuta, and of course MJF wins to have momentum for his inevitable cash-in. However, I am really intrigued by how The Firm took initiative and did the Heel stuff for him. MJF didn’t want it that way because perhaps deep down, he really does respect Yuta given their history from before AEW. Regal stepping up was also really cool, and I guess we’ll see how this goes. MJF watching Hangman VS Rush was also a nice touch. Hangman VS Rush was an awesome match, too, and LFI putting the screws to Private Party is really good stuff. Moxley defending Hangman to preserve their match is good stuff, and they had a great promo interaction. BCC is definitely winning against LFI by pinning Private Party and that’ll push #HardyParty VS LFI/AFO.

Great match from Darby VS Lethal, and I should’ve figured Sonjay & Satnam would still show up at some point. We got a similarly intriguing moment where Darby got Lethal to show some respect, and maybe Lethal is on his way to changing things. Great TNT Championship match, Wardlow and Cage are guys who both defy expectations for their musculature, but I had a feeling Wardlow would retain. Great brawl as The Embassy goes after Wardlow, only to bring out Samoa Joe and FTR. FTR VS GOA is going to be good stuff, but FTR will surely retain. And of course Luchasaurus wins his match, it wouldn’t have mattered who that was. JB showing up was a great surprise, and now we’re getting JB VS Luchasaurus in Toronto, that’ll be great stuff.

Great Six Woman Tag, and it really was great that Willow got the pin. Willow going after the TBS Championship was a bit of a surprise, but I suppose Face VS Heel dictates this match-up. I’m a little surprised this is happening when we got a tease of Jade VS Nyla last week, but I guess they just want to get Jade to 40 already. Jade will beat Willow, she’ll probably beat Nyla, and then who knows, maybe the 41st match is where Jade finally loses. As for Storm, I feel like they definitely need to push Hayter since fans love her, too.

At the same time, they are definitely teasing Saraya’s return to the ring and she’ll definitely have a match with Britt, either 1v1 or a tag match so it isn’t all on Saraya in case there’s ring rust. Skye & Rayne VS TayJay will be a decent match for Rampage but that promo was not the best. On one hand, TayJay may have a point that Skye is still green in presenting a personality. But Skye saying TayJay, each part having proven themselves in the ring these last three years, is bad. To me, Tay and Jay could each believably take down Rayne, because I still don’t see “it” in Rayne.

National Scissoring Day was hilarious stuff, and was proof that fans really do love The Acclaimed. But while I expected the Gunn Sons to interrupt because of how they’ve been talking crap, it was whose house? SWERVE’S HOUSE! Swerve VS Billy is going to be great, but I would think Swerve wins. Maybe Keith & Swerve have to beat Austin & Colten to get that rematch? Or do we get a Triple Threat again to clear out multiple teams at once? I did like that Sterling just expected The Acclaimed to side with him against their common enemy of Swerve, only for Sterling to take the hit.

I will say, for the backstage crap that went down between Sammy and Andrade, we still got a good group promo from the JAS, a great vignette to hype up the main event, and a great main event match. Unfortunately, Sammy’s nuclear heat detracted from the story that was going on, maybe they should’ve just called an audible and put Hager or one of the 2Point0 boys in there. And in the end, the JAS cheats again because duh, they’re Heels. But with Jericho VS Bryan III for the ROH World title is going to be great stuff next week. With Jericho getting the win here tonight, I would think Bryan wins next week, but we’ll just have to wait and see. I also totally expect Garcia to have a match with Jericho to decide his fate: join BCC as a pro-wrestler, or be stuck in JAS as a sports entertainer.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW Dark 2
Mitchell's AEW Dark Results & Report! (10/4/22)

Dark paves the way to the Dynamite Anniversary!

AEW is about to celebrate Dynamite’s Anniversary, but there’s plenty of action in the Dark! Will Dante Martin & Matt Sydal outwork the Workhorsemen?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Marina Shafir VS Sio Nieves; Shafir wins.
  • Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters VS AR Fox; Daivari wins.
  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/Mark Sterling VS Rohit Raju & Invictus Khash; Nese & Woods win.
  • Abadon VS Freya States; Abadon wins.
  • Slim J w/ The Trustbusters VS Blake Christian; Slim J wins.
  • Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi w/ Peter Avalon VS Eli Isom & Chris Farrow; Nemeth & Bononi win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Terry Kid; Boudreaux wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Skye wins.
  • The Iron Savages w/ JT Davidson VS Gus De La Vega & Levy Valenzuela; The Iron Savages win.
  • Dante Martin & Matt Sydal VS The Workhorsemen; Dante & Sydal win.

QUICK NOTES

Good line-up here. I feel like the Trustbusters are gonna sweep the night because they’ll all be supporting each other with Heel tactics. Honestly, I feel Blake Christian and AR Fox would each win their match-ups if they didn’t have to worry about outside distractions. Good to see the former Bear Country, now Iron Savages, Boulder & Bronson, back in action. They’ll definitely get a good return win. And Dante & Sydal VS JD Drake & Anthony Henry is a great tag match, and I would think Dante & Sydal win that.
