10 Man Tag: Jurassic Express, Christian Cage & The Lucha Brothers VS FTR & The Hardy Family Office w/ Tully Blanchard!

Once again, the #1 ranked contenders are teaming with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, upping the ante from the advertised 8 Man to a full 5v5! But how will adding Captain Charisma and Big Money Matt change the dynamics for this Dynamite showdown?

The teams sort out, Cash Wheeler starts against Christian and fans are already fired up. Cash and Christian circle, fans duel, and the two tie up. Cash puts Christian in a corner but Christian turns it around. Cash turns it back around, but Christian breaks free and the fans cheer the exchange. Cash double guns and circles with Christian. Christian and Cash knuckle lock, Cash waistlocks and SLAMS, then facelocks.

The AAA Tag Team Champions get another one over on the Lucha Brothers by way of Captain Charisma! Will this change the dynamics of the top five rankings in the tag division? Or will this only add fuel to the fire between Jurassic Express and the AEW World Tag Team Champions?

 

Six Man Tag: Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz VS Daniel Garcia & 2point0!

The Mad King just wanted some peace and quiet, but couldn’t get that with Matt Lee, Jeff Parker and “their son,” Daniel Garcia buzzing around him. One thing led to another, Garcia & 2point0 knocked Chris Jericho down, and now Proud ‘n’ Powerful are coming for blood! Will Kingston, Santana & Ortiz show they’re scarier than Red Death?

The trios sort out and Kingston is ready. Matt Lee steps up, the bell rings and while Garcia distracts Kingston, Lee attacks from behind! Lee CHOPS but Kingston doesn’t even flinch! Lee kicks low, whips, Kingston reverses to knee low and suplex! Kingston rushes after Garcia! They go around the outside, Parker is a shield but Kingston runs through him! The ref goes out there, and so do Santana & Ortiz, and now it’s a scrum with the ref stuck in the middle! The ref gets them to break it up but barely as Lee is sent into railing. Kingston gets back in, Garcia again acts as a decoy and Lee attacks! Tag to Parker and he fires off hands!

Fans rally for Kingston and he carries Parker for a SPINEBUSTER! Kingston drags Parker up, fish hooks his mouth, then tags Ortiz. Ortiz headlocks and grinds Parker down. Parker pulls hair, throws body shots, then powers out. Ortiz goes up and over then gets around to chicken wing and arm-drag! Parker trips Ortiz, covers, ONE, but Parker kicks low. Parker throws hands, whips, but Ortiz gets around to shove and trip him up! CALF KICK! Cover, TWO! Ortiz headlocks, Santana tags in, they double whip Parker to leap frog and KICK, ENZIGURI and DISCUS! Fans fire up with Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana grabs Parker but Parker scrambles away to tag Garcia!

Garcia talks trash, dodges Santana and kicks low to whip. Santana reverses, runs in and back elbows! Santana runs in again, blocks the boot, and ENZIGURIS Garcia back! Santana snap suplexes, Uno Amigo! Snap suplex, Dos Amigos! Snap suplex, THREE AMIGOS! Fans are fired up for Latino Heat and Santana drags Garcia up to CHOP him! Kingston grabs Garcia and BITES his forehead! The ref reprimands and counts, Kingston stops and Santana tags Ortiz. PNP whip, but Garcia BOOTS and forearms back! But he ends up in the clinch! Lift and wheelbarrow COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Ortiz drags Garcia up to CHOP!

Ortiz BITES Garcia’s ear! The ref reprimands, Ortiz wrenches and hooks Garcia up for a modified cobra twist! Garcia endures, Ortiz headlocks but Lee tags in as Garcia powers out. Garcia drops, Lee trips Ortiz and drags him out, then Garcia comes in around for a DRIVE-BY DROPKICK! Lee RAMS Ortiz into railing and DECKS him! Garcia gets a shot in, they put Ortiz in, and Lee digs his knees in at the ropes. Lee stops at the ref’s count to whip Ortiz hard into the corner! Tag to Parker, and 2point0 whip Ortiz to a corner as AEW goes picture in picture.

Lee whips Parker in to forearm smash Ortiz, then Parker feeds Ortiz to Lee’s drop toehold. Lee sets up to be the step stool, BOOYAH ELBOW! Parker stomps Ortiz, but Ortiz hits back with body shots, so Parker CLUBS him down. Tag to Garcia, they mug Ortiz, but Ortiz pushes Garcia. Garcia stomps Ortiz, drags him up to snapmare into a chinlock. Garcia grinds Ortiz down but Kingston just rushes in to attack! Another brawl breaks out, the ref has to restore order again, and this allows Garcia, Lee and Parker to get shots in on Ortiz! Garcia yells at Kingston but then tags out to Lee. Lee pushes Ortiz around, gets him up and hits a BACKBREAKER!

Lee taunts Kingston now but Ortiz CHOPS him back! Lee and Ortiz brawl, Parker tags in and they mug Ortiz. Parker brings Ortiz around to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Parker keeps Ortiz at the ropes, he tags Garcia in, and Garcia stomps Ortiz. Fans rally up, Kingston claps along, but Garcia gives him and Santana sucker punches! The ref has to keep them back, but Ortiz fires off on Garcia! Ortiz whips, Garcia drops to drag Ortiz down and gets the HEEL HOOK! But again, Kingston gets in and he BITES Garcia on the forehead! Kingston throws down hands, the ref has him stop and go back to the corner, but Kingston just grows more rabid at the ropes.

AEW returns to single picture, Garcia waistlocks Ortiz. Ortiz throws elbows and then switches to O’Conner Roll! TWO, Ortiz dropkicks Garcia! Hot tags to Kingston and Lee! Kingston rallies on 2point0, SPLASHES Lee then SPLASHES Parker! Kingston gives Garcia MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans are fired up, Parker runs over but into an EXPLODER! Garcia flops out of the ring, Kingston tags Santana. Santana BOOTS Lee in the corner, then he calls to Ortiz. Santana CHOPS Lee, Garcia sweeps Kingston off the apron! Ortiz DECKS Garcia, gets in and pops Lee up for an atomic drop! Santana BLINDSLIDE LARIATS, then Ortiz DDT’s!

Ortiz sets up as a step stool again, Santana uses him for an assisted MOONSAULT, but onto knees! Roll up, with tights! Garcia & 2point0 win!!

Winners: Daniel Garcia & 2point0, by pinfall

Garcia stomps away on Santana, then so does Lee! They’re adding insult to injury after stealing the win. Garcia has the ring bell!? Garcia brings it into the ring, the ref tells him to stop! Kingston crawls into the ring, Garcia stomps him down! Garcia aims at Santana, BELL SMASH!! BUT HERE COMES JERICHO!! And he’s got Floyd the baseball bat! He SMACKS Parker, but Garcia and 2point0 get away before any more can happen! Will they regret ever crossing Le Champion?

As for Kingston, he looks at Jericho with some confusion. Kingston didn’t need Jericho’s help, but Jericho says he was here for PNP. Ortiz tries to keep the peace between Kingston and Jericho, can they all focus on their common enemies in Garcia and 2point0?

 

MJF speaks.

“Hey, it’s me, one of the biggest ratings draws in all of professional wrestling. Don’t believe me? Google it. And today, we’re going to talk about unsafe working conditions.” Last week, MJF was “thrown over the top rope with reckless abandonment by that untrained outlaw hack, Sting.” Who even trained that guy? No one knows, because he was never trained! The man is revered when he should be released. MJF is sure if he was working for a much more professional wrestling company, things like this wouldn’t happen. But that is a conversation to have as we get closer to the bidding war in 2024.

But CM Punk, you claim you want a piece of MJF and are a man of the people, yet the people want Punk VS MJF and Punk wanted no part of MJF in that match “like a gutless coward.” Well guess what? MJF is right here. Punk is yesterday’s news, a distraction from MJF’s ultimate goal, and that is him becoming AEW World Champion. But why stop there? War Dog, stop chasing the Powerbomb Symphony so you can start getting wins and qualify into the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match, where the winner gets a shot at the TNT Championship, which MJF knows he’ll win! But when Wardlow wins, he can then relinquish it to Wardlow. Say what now?

MJF had a feeling that’d be his reaction. Spears, go get Mark Sterling. The hell is this? Sterling brings up the contract MJF and Wardlow have, and Wardlow working with MJF and The Pinnacle, he is “work for hire,” and any merchandise, royalties, and even championships immediately belong to MJF. Always have a plan. Just like Sterling does for Jade Cargill. Cool. Now, Spears, Sterling, disappear. Got it. So MJF will rank up and become not just TNT Champion but AEW World Champion. Why? Because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, he is better than you, and you know it. Wardlow looks ready to kill, but will he kill opponents or his own boss?

 

Backstage interview with the Lucha Brothers.

But before Tony Schiavone can really talk with them, Jurassic Express barge in! Christian accuses “you dipshits of going into business for yourselves!” That cost them the match! Let’s stop delaying the inevitable. Next week, Jurassic Express VS Lucha Brothers, on Dynamite, for the AEW World Tag Team Championships! Penta answers in Spanish, Alex Abrahantes translates, saying that Christian is supposed to be a legend, yet he can’t even be a good tag partner. But y’know what? JB may be the future, maybe he should consider letting go of the past. Fenix adds that they accept the challenge! Because they have CERO! MIEDO! The title match is on, but who starts 2022 as champions?

 

Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears VS Colin Delaney!

After again being told what to do by Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Wardlow goes to the ring to take care of business! But will he do things his way? Or will he follow orders like the War Dog he is?

The bell rings and fans chant “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” They tie up, Delaney waistlocks but Wardlow breaks free with a hard back elbow, then winds up for a LARIAT! Spears says that’s great stuff, and Wardlow drags Delaney up to reel him in. POWERBOMB! Delaney flounders and fans want it “One More Time! One More Time!” Spears says no but Wardlow says yes! ANOTHER POWERBOMB! Wardlow drags Delaney up again, Spears just give sup, POWERGOMB NUMBER THREE! But then a roll right into POEWRBOMB NUMBER FOUR! One foot cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Spears applauds, because clearly there’s no stopping Wardlow from doing what Wardlow wants! But then, what happens if and when Wardlow gets gold? Spears adds on with a CHAIRSHOT to Delaney on the ramp! The ref reprimands, Spears ushers Wardlow on, will Spears also be on Wardlow’s list of grievances?

 

The Super Kliq, and friends, speak.

“Brandon, are we live?” “Uh, I think so.” Good, because tonight will be historic! Adam Cole says the five of them together will go down as the greatest group not only in AEW but in all of pro-wrestling! Matt Jackson says, “Is that what this is? One big happy family?” Even though Kyle O’Reilly hasn’t even said hi to them since he got here! He’s barely made eye contact! Kyle somewhat sarcastically says hi to Matt and Nick. But he wants a minute to talk with Adam. Anything he wants to say to Adam, he can say to them. Cole tells the Bucks it’s fine, he’s got this. The Bucks accept that and leave, and then Kyle tells Bobby Fish he can go.

Once alone, Cole tries to speak first but Kyle has him stop. Kyle knows things are messed up, there was heat the last time they saw each other. But this is AEW. The key to surviving here, and for that matter, thriving here, is factions. Kyle, Cole and Fish, they are three dangerous individuals, the paragons of AEW. Now tonight against Best Friends, Kyle knows Fish has his back. He’ll find out if Cole does, too. Cole has Cutler cut, but will this reunited trio be anything but undisputed?

 

Dan Lambert & The Men of the Year are in the ring.

And worse yet, Lambert has the mic. “My MMA business is a full-time job. I just thought it’d be cool to come here as an old school fan. The problem is, there is absolutely nothing cool about Cody Rhodes and his entourage. Arn Anderson is one of my all time favorites, but I see him with Cody, and it just makes me sad. Because now he’s a guy trying to make a couple dollars sucking up to another guy who sucks up to THE guy.” Arn used to be a Horseman, now he’s just a whore. That’s the perfect segue to Brandi! And if that’s her real name, she’s the first Brandi that Dan’s known that wasn’t a stripper!

Ethan Page stops Dan right there to say, “That’s not currently a stripper. Because now, she’s a ‘wrestler.'” Dan says that is an excellent point, but they can’t keep coming back here with stripper jokes, or else they’re going to get very old and very tired very quickly. Just like Brandi these last couple years. That brings Lambert to Cody. He knows how hard Cody’s tried to make it to this business, “traveling the world, spilling blood, breaking bones, crashing through tables of fire.” Hell, Cody went so far as to tattoo “a Transformers logo” to his neck, “that even Mike Tyson thinks looks stupid!”

Cody never really made it, through, until he cut that deal with Tony Conman to become the pet project to skip the line over more deserving talent! AEW fans may be idiots, but even an idiot doesn’t like the taste of that shit sandwich AEW is shoving down their throats! But then Brandi Rhodes walks out to ask, “Who the hell told you tonight was open mic night, you bobble headed, ugly ass, less talented version of Paul Heyman?” Brandi goes right to the ring, and Lambert says he prefers Jim Cornett. But the sound of Brandi’s voice makes Lambert wish he was back in that street fight, getting his balls stapled by Chris Jericho!

Brandi says at least her family thinks that’s funny. But to ask a serious question, when’s the last time Lambert got beat up by a woman and didn’t have to pay for it? She’ll do him a solid by whoopin’ that ass for free. “Listen, Bambi. Sorry, I get my stripper names confused sometimes, Brandi.” But Lambert is a blackbelt in Brazilian jiujitsu, there is not a single soul watching that doesn’t want to slap the taste outta Brandi’s mouth right now. And if he’s the one who gets to, then let’s go! Oh so Lambert has a blackbelt? Well she’s a Black bitch, let’s go! The Men of the Year have to hold Lambert back on this one! And here comes Dustin Rhodes to stop Brandi!

But then Ethan sucker punches Dustin! The Men of the Year and Lambert bail, telling everyone to kiss their asses. Will the American Nightmare have something to say about this?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Winter is Coming, Hangman Page VS Bryan Danielson.

Tony Schiavone says, “When the match started, it was very apparent to me by the look on his face that Bryan Danielson did not respect Adam Page.” Adam Page himself says that he knew Bryan had the technical ability, the intellect and the stamina, but he didn’t know that when he hit Bryan as hard as he could in the head, Bryan would get back up. Excalibur says that as we saw in the first match, Champion’s Advantage means a draw keeps the title around the champion. But now, that advantage is thrown out the window with three judges at ringside to make the decision.

Jim Ross says the judges brings some intrigue to this. Who will they be? What are their points system? It is a recipe for chaos. Excalibur says there is no better way to kick off the TBS Era of AEW than with this world title match. Schiavone says there is a lot of prestige added. And Schiavone’s felt that ever since Bryan arrived, he would inevitably become AEW World Champion. Will it be on the first TBS show? That remains to be seen. Excalibur says this has all the potential of going another 60 minutes, and it could kick off the TBS Era with a NEW AEW World Champion. Who will be proven right when the Cowboy and the American Dragon run it back?

 

AEW TBS Championship Semifinal: Thunder Rosa VS Jade Cargill w/ Mark Sterling!

La Mera Mera and #ThatBitch have had it out for each other for a lot longer than just this title tournament! But now, in their biggest showdown yet, only one is going to meet Ruby Soho in the finals! Will Rosa bring the thunder to Jade’s storm? Or will the undefeated streak continue all the way to the title fight?

The bell rings and Rosa waits until Jade turns around to dropkick the legs out! Jade bails out, fans are thunderous for Rosa already as she runs, but Sterling blocks her path! Sterling has Jade catch her breath, but then Rosa CANNONBALLS to take out Sterling! Jade CLOBBERS Rosa from behind, then fires more forearms! Jade smacks Rosa off barriers, taunts the fans, but Rosa hits back with body shots! Rosa throws knees from all sides, RAMS Jade into the apron, then gets in to refresh the count. Rosa KICKS Cargill’s legs, but she fires back forearms! Jade CLUBS Rosa down, the ring count starts again, Jade gets the chicken wings but Rosa fights free to the apron!

Rosa leaps to CROSSBODY, but Jade catches her for a BACKBREAKER! Jade gets in the ring to refresh the count, then flexes. Jade dares Rosa to get up, then runs in, only for Rosa to dodge and dropkick the leg out! Rosa gets Jade’s leg to kick away on it! Sterling protests but the ref keeps counting. Rosa refreshes the count again, and then she drags Jade to railing. Rosa puts Jade’s leg on it and KICKS the leg! Jade falls over, Rosa KICKS her leg more! Rosa drags Jade up but Jade whips Rosa into railing again! Jade hobbles after Rosa, stomps her down, and gets back in the ring to refresh the count. Jade stalks Rosa, brings her around, but Rosa throws body shots!

Rosa whips but Jade reverses to POST Rosa! Jade puts Rosa in the ring and flexes on the apron. Fans rally and duel, Jade hobbles, but she pretends to dribble. Jade runs in but Rosa dodges the slam dunk! Rosa then SLAPS Jade, shoulders in, but Jade gets her with knee after knee! Rosa catches the leg to get it in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Jade falls and Rosa fires up! Fans fire up, too, and Rosa goes up the corner. Jade hobbles, but Rosa slips a little. Rosa still elbows Jade, but Jade comes back with a BOOT! Jade is snarling as AEW goes picture in picture.

Rosa flounders to the ropes, Jade works out the bad leg and the two circle. Rosa feels it out, shoots in to get the bad leg, but Jade throws her off. They circle, Rosa goes for the leg again, but Jade throws her back off. Rosa avoids the boot to trip Jade and drop elbows on the knee! Rosa has a high stack but Jade kicks out before a count. Rosa goes for the leg again but Jade kicks her away. Jade hobbles up but Rosa shoots back in to get the legs! Jade blocks the takedown to a GUILLOTINE! Rosa endures as Jade keeps her off the ground! Then Jade shifts to a GOURD BUSTER! Jade clutches her knee but Rosa sputters on the mat.

Jade drags Rosa back up, swings, but Rosa dodges to KICK the leg! Rosa dodges to KICK again, then gets around to kick, only for Jade to block and throw her down! Jade drags Rosa up to CLUB her, but Rosa goes after the leg. Jade CLUBS Rosa again, tries to suplex, but Rosa blocks and fires back! Rosa focuses on the knee but Jade CLUBS her down again. Jade stomps with the good leg, brings Rosa back up, and manages to suplex! Jade still holds Rosa up for 10 and maybe even 15, before Rosa makes it a CROSSBODY! Cover as AEW returns to single picture, TWO! Rosa goes to a corner and fans fire up as she aims at Jade!

Rosa runs corner to corner, but she blocks Jade’s boot to put it in the ropes. Rosa kicks away on the bad leg, throws haymakers on it, but lets off as the ref counts. Rosa goes corner to corner again, to clothesline! Then she throws point-blank clotheslines! Jade sits down, Rosa goes corner to corner again, basement dropkick to the leg! Fans fire up as Rosa runs in again, another basement dropkick to the leg! Rosa has the leg, kicks away on the hamstring, then drags Jade for a high stack, TWO! Jade is still in this but Rosa keeps after the knee! More elbow drops, then Rosa steps through, only for Jade to kick her away. Things speed up, Jade manages to pop Rosa up for a SAMOAN DROP!

Jade kips up, adrenaline helping, but she’s still hobbling. Jade sees Rosa get to a corner and she storms over. Jade blocks a boot to KNEE Rosa, then brings her out to gut wrench. Jade has to worry about her leg at the same time, but she still matches the CANADIAN RACK BACKBREAKER! Jade can’t cover because of the leg, but she watches Rosa go to ropes. Jade drags Rosa up but Rosa lands on her feet! Jade waistlocks, Rosa switches, gets the leg, SHIN BREAKER! Rosa says this is it! She has the leg, steps through, FIGURE FOUR!! Sterling is freaking out as Jade endures! Jade drags herself over, Rosa puts as much as she can into the hold, but Jade gets back to the ROPEBREAK!

Sterling gets Jade a drink of water, but the ref has him back off! Rosa goes after Jade while Sterling and the ref argue. Rosa wants the figure four again but Jade BOOTS her into buckles! And then someone SMASHES Rosa in the head!! Who was that in the hoodie and jacket!? Jade gets Rosa’s arms, for the JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (advances to the finals)

Was that sneak attack part of the plan Sterling alluded to earlier? Jade’s undefeated streak and title opportunity both still live because of that, but then Rosa hits a THESZ PRESS! The mystery person comes back to attack again! Rosa gets mugged by them both, and the mystery person reveals themselves to be MERCEDES MARTINEZ! Mean Ms. Mercedes is back in AEW, and she is helping Jade beat down Rosa! But here comes RUBY! The Runaway has a pipe, and she runs Jade and Mercedes off! The TBS debut will have the TBS Championship finals, will Ruby be the one to break Jade once and for all?

 

AEW takes a closer look at the coming Women’s World Championship match.

Britt Baker says, “Not only did Riho steal a win, she pissed me off.” Excalibur says Riho has Britt’s number. That has Britt shook to her core. Schiavone says Britt will use this anger to her advantage. Britt continues to say, “And all of you know, there is nothing more lethal than a pissed off DMD. This is my division.” Battle of the Belts gives us Britt VS Riho one more time! Will we see the DMD Era continue? Or will Riho become the first-ever TWO-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion in the New Year?

 

CM Punk is here!

And for the first time, Daily’s Place gets to sing Cult of Personality for the Best in the World! Punk gets the mic, fans are thunderously chanting his name, and then he speaks. “I’ve never been to Daily’s Place, I don’t even know what the set up is. Where’s Jim Ross?” Punk looks and finds him on commentary. Punk comes out here and immediately thinks how awesome it is to see JR back in the booth. Punk knows JR is the best to ever do it, glad to see him back to work. JR thanks Punk for that. Punk says he’s about giving people flowers when they deserve it. Then he thinks about Daily’s Place. He hasn’t been here before, but he knows it is a home for AEW.

So that gets Punk thinking about Brodie Lee. Fans chant “BRODIE! BRODIE!” If there’s anybody out there that says anything to try and minimize the impact that man has, that makes Punk feel sorry for them, because it means they never met him. Punk sat at home, saw that tribute show to his friend from here, and it made Punk want to come here. So then Punk got to thinking about someone not worth his time, someone who doesn’t want to be here. And speaking of internet trolls, Punk is talking about MJF. MJF is a Twitter troll in the flesh. He talks a big game, but when it comes down to it, he won’t say that to your face. He hides behind a keyboard, or in this case, FTR.

Punk saw it with his own eyes, as did the fans. Someone smart enough to say the people want to see Punk VS MJF, but is also stupid enough to say something that MJF is as good as Roddy Piper in Portland. Well, Piper would lace up his wrestling boots, while MJF clearly laced up his running shoes. Not sure if you heard, but MJF says he’s done with Punk. Honestly, Punk’s fine with that. He got to team with Sting and Darby Allin, and they beat FTR & MJF! Punk gets it if MJF is afraid, if he don’t want none, he doesn’t have to have none. But Punk is looking towards bigger and better. Punk knows MJF wants gold, he wants the AEW World Championship.

JR will attest to this, “If you don’t want to be the champion, you probably shouldn’t be here.” That’s true! Punk wants to be champion, too. There’s beginnings and endings, and being here in Daily’s Place, the place that’s been so good to AEW, and it’s also the last Dynamite on TNT, it’s moving to TBS, there is bigger and brighter things on the horizon. So MJF, you are a waste of Punk’s time, and a bigger waste of Khan money than Tim Tebow. The fans really liked that last part! Punk will leave us with this: He never wanted to mess with MJF, but MJF found out the hard way that on the mic, in the ring, and even on commentary, no one can touch Punk!

If MJF wants to climb the ladder and get to the gold, then sooner or later, they’ll see each other again in the ring. But it’d be a real shame if someone interfered with MJF’s quest for gold. When and where will the Best in the World face off with the Salt of the Earth on the road to the title?

 

Ricky Starks speaks.

“We’d like to send a welcome back to Jim Ross. Thank you, man, I’m glad that you’re back. Because now you have freed up Taz’s time, so he can devote that to making sure that Hook is a beast of a competitor. And in fact, you can hear Technique By Taz on Rampage. But more importantly, I want to talk to you, Dante.” Dante Martin screwed over Team Taz when he threw Starks out of the ring, and thereby screwed his chances of ever having a successful career. So if Ricky can’t win the ring, then Dante won’t win a damn thing, either. Dante’s stalled out, and Starks is a big fan of history. Last time Dante and Will Hobbs had at it, we all know how that went.

Hobbs will refresh Dante’s memory. Does Dante really want to go to a round two with Hobbs? Marinate on that. Will Angel Dorado run into the Powerhouse of Team Taz and be bulldozed on behalf of Absolute Ricky Starks?

 

Sammy Guevara is here!

He only just lost his AEW TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes on the Christmas edition of Rampage, but he has his cue cards for this picture in picture message. “Bobby Fish, Ethan Page, Jay Lethal, Tony Nese. Five matches as a champ, 4 successful defenses, 3 month title reign, 2 Cross Rhodes later, I lost my championship. That’s 1 memory I won’t forget! With New Year’s upon us, I have my resolution. BEAT THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE! WIN BACK MY TITLE! And once again BE THE TNT CHAMPION!” Will the Spanish God rise up and reclaim the gold in 2022?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“Serena Deeb. ‘Professor.’ I’m going to teach you a lesson today.” Serena Deeb asked for it when she pulled down the turnbuckle’s pad. It was all her fault, and yet she says Shida cheated? Don’t whine! Just ask for the rematch. And Shida’s answer: “Bring it! I’ll beat you down again!”

 

Schiavone is in the ring with Brian Pillman Jr!

Schiavone wants BPJ’s reaction to these last couple of weeks in regards to the actions of Malakai Black. BPJ says what happened was that in Greensboro, North Carolina, BPJ’s tag partner and brother, Griff Garrison, “walked right into the House of Black.” Admittedly, BPJ can’t remember that night. But what he can’t get out of his head is the sound of the bell ringing over and over again while Malakai tried to end Griff’s career! So what did BPJ do? He stormed in to protect his brother. But as he got up, that’s where things are a bit fuzzy, and his memory goes completely black. Next thing BPJ knows, he’s right down on the ground next to the person he was trying to protect.

So congratulations to Malakai on the cheap shot! It wasn’t the first and it won’t be the last. As a second generation wrestler, BPJ has busted his ass day in and day out since day one, right here in Jacksonville, Florida! BPJ calls out Malakai, and says it is his turn to take a trip. BPJ won’t kick down the door, that’s what Malakai wants. BPJ never knew his father, what kind of man he really was, but what he learned from Brian Pillman Senior’s life is that you only get one! BPJ isn’t giving Malakai his! Next week, we see a brand new Brian Pillman Junior! But then the lights go out! And on stage, appears MALAKAI! Malakai takes off the hood and mask, and points to BPJ!

The lights then go out again, and Malakai disappears. BPJ is seething, but will being bulletproof be enough to survive the House of Black?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage New Year’s Smash!

After being called out by the Men of the Year and Dan Lambert, as well as assaulting brother Dustin, Cody Rhodes is stepping up! Cody puts his TNT Championship on the line against Ethan Page! Will All Ego take that title right off the American Nightmare to close out the year? Plus, Darby Allin takes on Anthony Bowens 1v1 in a big singles showdown!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Ain’t it funny how in AEW, to be in the main event, you gotta wrestle the main event tag team, huh?” The main event ain’t even ranked! The Acclaimed is a well oiled machine! Caster even helps Bowens oil up. Bowens tells Darby that this Friday, they get in the ring so Bowens can beat that “My Chemical Romance looking ass all over Jacksonville to ring in the New Year!” Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And that’s a mic drop!

Sting & Darby respond!

Sting marvels at how many people can talk about main event matches so casually. When Sting started, every match he was in was treated like the main event. Just food for thought. Darby says many have tried to stop them, but all they’ve done is try. Darby could be the first match or the last match on the card, but he has no ego. It doesn’t matter. So Bowens, Rampage New Year’s Smash, “I’m ready.”

But wait! There’s more!

As Ricky Starks mentioned, there will be a Technique By Taz all about Hook for Rampage! And then, to finally settle things before the year is over, Penelope Ford & The Bunny take on #TayJay, Tay Conti & Anna Jay, in a TAG TEAM STREET FIGHT!

AEW hears from the four women in that Tag Team Street Fight.

Anna Jay says, “Tay and I have both beaten Penelope Ford & The Bunny fair and square.” Tay adds, “A bunch of times.” But those two have also cheated. So now they can just have a Street Fight where there are no rules. The Bunny is sure Conti thinks she’s so tough with the blackbelts and the kicks, but this isn’t karate, kids. And in the end, the good guys won’t win. Ford says, “We’re the most psychotic bitches in town. And who knows what toys we’ll bring this Friday night on Rampage.”

 

Six Man Tag: Orange Cassidy & Best Friends VS Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly!

Freshly Squeezed, the Kentucky Gentleman and #JustTrent have all had their problems with the Panama City Playboy, the Infamous One and the Violent Artist, some of this going all the way back to their days in ROH! But now that they’re all #AllElite, will Cole, Fish & O’Reilly still be undisputed? Or will there be some doubt left in their minds after taking on literal Best Friends?

The trios sort out, Kyle starts against Chuck Taylor. They circle, feel it out, and Kyle KICKS Chuck’s leg. Chuck gets a headlock, Kyle powers out but Chuck runs Kyle over. Things speed up and Kyle hits a kitchen sink knee! Chuck gets away to the corner while fans chant, “Undisputed! Undisputed!” Trent tags in, he and Kyle circle. Kyle KICKS, Trent blocks but Kyle SLAPS free! Trent fires a forearm, Kyle gives it back, and they go back and forth. Kyle KICKS the leg, Trent CHOPS, but Kyle KIKCS. Trent CHOPS, Kyle KICKS, but then Kyle blocks the chop to fire off knees. Kyle runs, into a ROLLING ELBOW! Trent runs, into a JUMP KNEE!

Kyle goes for the ax but Trent dodges to CHOP! Double BOOTS hit, but they both stay up, only for double BOOTS to hit again! They both fall, but Kyle’s right back up! Trent gets up, the two stand off, and they decide to tag out to Fish and Cassidy. Cassidy throws his sunglasses at Fish! Then he bobs ‘n’ weaves with Fish, to “fire off” the shin kicks! Fish kicks but Cassidy ducks to roll him up! TWO, Fish kicks and ROCKS Cassidy with strikes from all sides! Fish snapmares Cassidy near ropes, then goes out and slingshots in, only for Cassidy to avoid the senton! Cassidy raises his hands, but Fish rushes out after him! Cassidy slides in, then puts his hands in his pockets!

But Kyle distracts the ref so Cole can CLOBBER Cassidy! Fish hits the slingshot senton! Tag to Cole, Cole whips Cassidy to a corner, but Cassidy goes up and out and slingshots in to get around and shove Cole into the corner! Tag to Trent, he fires forearms, then tags Chuck. Best Friends double whip corner to corner, then they wave Cassidy on. Cassidy winds up and goes as fast as a sloth can, Chuck forearm smashes first! Trent clotheslines, Cassidy arrives to feed Cole to double shoulders! The Best Friends shake hands to double elbow drop! But reDRagon gets in to attack Best Friends! They whip, Best Friends CLOBBER each of them!

Kyle is sent out, then Fish. Best Friends bring it in, but Cole & reDRagon ruin the group hug! Kyle BOOTS Cassidy down, Cole bumps Chuck off buckles. Chuck reverses the whip but Cole sends him out. Chuck DECKS Fish, ROCKS Cole, but Kyle gets the leg for a DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Fish sweeps the legs! Chuck crashes down and Cole soaks up the heat. Cole takes his time going to Chuck as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cole drags Chuck up, POSTS him, then drags Chuck up and into the ring. Cole drags Chuck up to turn and NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Tag to Kyle, he stomps Chuck, then drags Chuck up to wrench the arm. ELBOW BREAKER, another wrench, and Kyle wrangles Chuck down to a hammerlock. Kyle KNEES and CLUBS the arm, then KNEES and CLUBS the other side. Kyle runs to SLIDING KNEE! Then he fish hooks Chuck’s nose! The ref reprimands, Kyle tags Fish, reDRagon mugs Chuck. Fish wrenches and uppercuts Chuck’s arm, then wrenches it again to CLUB it. Fish puts Chuck in the corner, stomps him and digs in a boot.

The ref counts, Fish distracts the ref so Cole and Kyle can get shots in! Cole and Kyle let off before the ref sees it, and Fish digs his knee in. The ref counts that, Fish lets off at 4 to tag Cole. Cole drags Chuck up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Cole keeps on Chuck with a chinlock but Chuck endures. Chuck fights up, throws body shots, but Cole CLUBS him then throws him out. The ref keeps his eyes on reDRagon as AEW returns to single picture. Cole says the ref should be wary of Cassidy, and that gives Kyle the opening! Kyle whips Chuck but Chuck reverses and Kyle crashes into railing! Chuck CLOBBERS Fish, but runs into Cole’s fireman’s carry! USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!

Fans rally up, Cole stalks Chuck, but he SUPERKICKS Cassidy down! Trent glares at Cole but Cole tags to Kyle. Cole rushes Chuck but he gets thrown out! Chuck BOOTS Kyle, hot tag to Trent! Trent DECKS Kyle, Cole trips Trent, but Trent DECKS Cole! Trent avoids Kyle’s plancha to then CLOBBER Fish! Fish swings into a HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX! Kyle runs in, leaps, GUILLOTINE! But Trent BACK DROPS free! Fans fire up as Trent runs in at Kyle in the corner, BIG back elbow! And then TORANDO DDT! Cover, TWO! Kyle survives but Trent keeps cool.

Fans fire up as the Best Friends HUG! GOT to give the people what they want!

Wait, Brandon Cutler runs out, spraying the spray all over the place? The hell is he up to? Cutler gets in, Best Friends DECK him, but that’s a distraction so the Buck scan get in to DOUBL ESUPERKICK! Kyle and Fish give Chuck CHASING THE DRAGON!! Cover, CFO wins!

Winners: Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly, by pinfall

It seems the Bucks were willing to work with reDRagon because of their mutual friend in Adam Cole! The ref raises reDRagon’s hands, but the Bucks act like reDRagon neglected Cole? Then maybe there isn’t cohesion between all of Cole’s comrades?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite to close out the TNT Era and go into the TBS Era. Well, apparently Rampage stays on TNT, since it’s just an hour on Fridays, but we’re apparently going to be getting plenty of “Saturday Night Fights” specials from now on. But speaking of which, what is even the point of Battle of the Belts now that we’re getting so much on the TBS premiere? The AEW World Championship got a great hype vignette for Hangman VS Danielson II, and given how big it is, putting it on the TBS premiere does make sense since that episode needs to be big. And same goes for the TBS Championship match, because duh, it’s the TBS Championship.

But why are we putting the AEW World Tag Team Championships on the TBS premiere? It’s great that we’re getting that match but I thought we were getting it for Battle of the Belts. Is Battle of the Belts only an hour? That’s a bit of a shame, that just makes it like a themed Rampage. At least it’s getting the AEW Women’s World Championship, which also got a good hype vignette. But at the same time, Britt VS Riho seems easy to call: Britt retains. I feel like the same goes for the tag title match. The Lucha Brothers are just that good of a tag team. And they’ve got plenty of teams they can take on in the TBS Era to really excite the fans.

The TBS Championship semifinal match tonight was great stuff, especially with the story of Rosa going after the legs. And they even had a good way of protecting Rosa while still keeping Jade going with Mercedes attacking Rosa. Mercedes has gone back and forth between AEW and WWE, and with WWE having thrown her away again, I’m thinking Mercedes is going to stay in AEW and be part of Sterling’s “client list.” Jade VS Ruby is going to be awesome, but I’m thinking Jade wins to live up to #ThatBitchShow. And Rampage giving us the Tag Team Street Fight blow off for Ford & Bunny VS TayJay is going to be great stuff, too, and I hope the Faces win there.

The Six Man Tag of Kingston, Santana & Ortiz VS Garcia & 2point0 was great stuff, especially with Kingston so obsessed with getting after Garcia. I should’ve figured Garcia & 2point0 would cheat to win, but I also figured it’d bring Jericho out after them. I’m pretty sure this now means Kingston and Jericho will have to work together to settle things with Garcia & 2point0, and somehow they do to come out on top. Then after that, we need Proud ‘n’ Powerful feuding with Lucha Brothers, mostly because Santana & Ortiz need that feud. Sammy had a good cue card promo, but I’m not sure if he’ll get that TNT title off Cody.

Speaking of, Cody VS Ethan for this week’s Rampage is great news. To think it would be Brandi Rhodes who made a Dan Lambert segment great stuff. Her line about blackbelt VS Black bitch was awesome! And while I’m pretty sure Cody retains, I now want Rhodes Brothers VS Men of the Year. That could end up with Cody wanting the tag titles, and adding more heat to his Face Not Face story. Cody could be one title away from the Triple Crown, and then in the ultimate Heel move, he undoes the world title embargo he put on himself early on and tries to take the title from Hangman or whoever.

And then speaking of the world title, great stuff from MJF and CM Punk. I hope both of these guys start having regularly scheduled matches on Dynamite, that’ll help with the transition to TBS. AEW Revolution is going to be later in the year than before, so that gives both guys plenty of time to build up and then end up the #1 and #2 contenders, who will then have to face each other to determine THE #1 contender to the title. MJF also slipped in the news of the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match 2, and I actually do hope Wardlow wins, then wins the TNT title, so he can smack MJF with it and effectively quit The Pinnacle.

Then last but not least, we got awesome stuff out of the building Adam Cole story. Great promo to loosely reference Cole VS Kyle in NXT while also resetting their kayfabe for AEW, and then we got a great main event Six Man Tag. Maybe even PPV tier, since this was the last Dynamite on TNT. The Bucks helping reDRagon win but then acting like reDRagon were in the wrong was a great bit of mind games from the Bucks, and I have a feeling that the Bucks’ attempts at keeping Cole with them will backfire so that Cole sides with reDRagon. Then Kenny Omega comes back, he’s upset with Cole, we get our ultimate Six Man of The Elite VS Undisputed Era at like Double or Nothing 2022.

My Score: 9.1/10

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.

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (10/3/22)

Philly gets Elevated!

AEW Elevation Coverage

The Peacock and his Boys defends their gold!

AEW Dark: Elevation features the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions! But will Dalton Castle & The Tate Twins still reign in Philadelphia?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Skye Blue VS Trish Adora; Skye wins.
  • Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tracy Williams; Cage wins.
  • Lance Archer VS Cheeseburger; Archer wins.
  • Abadon VS Abby Jane; Abadon wins.
  • ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Primal Fear; Castle & The Boys win and retain the titles.
  • Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Gia Scott & Leon St. Giovanni; Kip & Penelope win.
  • The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Deppen & Dante Martin; The Lucha Brothers win.
  • 8 Man Tag: Best Friends VS The Factory; Best Friends win.

QUICK NOTES

A really good line-up here, with the big attraction being Dalton & The Boys taking on Adrien Soriano, Matthew Omen, & Gabriel Hodder, aka Primal Fear. That’ll be a solid match that I will cover, but I don’t see the champions losing the titles. Good to see Cheeseburger but he’s gonna get eaten alive by Archer. And I like that we’re getting a full faction showdown of Best Friends VS The Factory. That’ll be a big win for Best Friends and they’ll have momentum going after Death Triangle for that feud.

PLAY BY PLAY

ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Primal Fear!

The Peacock and the Tate Twins continue their reign as ROH’s trios champions, and now they defend these titles in the City of Brotherly Love! Adrien Soriano, Matthew Omen, & Gabriel Hodder are all hungry for the gold, but will they be the ones to fear Castle & The Boys?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised while The Boys help Castle with his robe and pants, and it is time to shine with gold in the Dark!

The trios sort out and Castle is all fired up as he starts against Soriano. They get in each other’s face, Castle gives a chest bump, so Soriano CHOPS him! Castle gets fanned off by the twins, then he comes back to circle with Soriano. Castle trips Soriano, rolls him with a leg, high stacks, TWO! Castle shoots in to waistlock and SLAMS Soriano down! Fans fire up, Castle waistlocks to roll Soriano around and throw down elbows. Castle gut wrenches, tag to Brendan, and he tags Brent. The Boys double whip Castle in to SPLASH Soriano at the corner, and then he feeds Soriano to a DOUBLE HIP TOSS!

The Boys roll Soriano back for Castle to shove forward into DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES! Brent covers, TWO! Brent drags Soriano up but he shoves Brent away to tag Hodder. Hodder runs in but Brent dodges to arm-drag him! Brent rushes in but Hodder kicks him low. Tag to Omen, they go after Brent but he fights back. That’s still 2v1 and they overwhelm him. They double whip, Brent ducks under but runs into a double TOSS right into the ropes! Soriano tags in and traps Brent, then Omen & Hodder run to the corners. They go up, out and Soriano runs, Primal Fear TRIPLE BOOTS Brent! Soriano covers, TWO!

Soriano drags Brent up, bumps him off buckles, but Brent elbows back. Brent hurries but Soriano reels him in. Brent lands out of the back suplex to hot tag Castle! Fans fire up with The Peacock as he rallies on Primal Fear! Castle gets around Soriano to Gotch lift OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Hodder runs in, into an EXPLODER! Omen returns, Castle dodges, blocks the boot and SAIDOS! Primal Fear regroups outside as fans fire up. “Bring me a Boy!” Brent runs in, Castle aims him and THROWS him at Omen! Then Castle has Brendan and THROWS him at Soriano! Brent returns, and Castle THROWS him at Hodder! And then he THROWS Brendan at Omen!

Brent’s back again, so Castle THROWS him at Soriano! Brendan is back, Castle THROWS him at Hodder! Fans fire up as Castle and the Boys regroup, DOUBLE BOY TOSS at Soriano! The Boys then send Soriano in for the Alabama Lift, and BANGARANG!! Cover, Castle & The Boys win!

Winners: Dalton Castle & The Boys, by pinfall (still ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions)

There was no fear in The Peacock and his trusted twins, they took down Primal Fear with ease! Will they find bigger, stronger competition as they stick around AEW?
