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 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!

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.

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?
“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?

Fish puts Chuck in the corner, stomps him and digs in a boot.

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!

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?
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

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

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

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall
The Dark Order hurry into the ring and Moxley backs off, there won’t be any extracurriculars here. But will the Dark Order ever get payback on the mean SOBs in the BCC?
Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.
Renee says she can feel the frustration coming off The Absolute. The back ‘n’ forth with him and Juice Robinson, where do they stand? You tell him! Starks is “sick and tired of talking back and forth. No action, all talk.” Starks doesn’t wanna stand around, take time off his vacation, just to say Juice, he doesn’t like that you attacked him from behind. That’s cool and all, but whatever! How about this, though? Saturday Night Rampage, Starks is done talking. If Juice wants to face him man to man, then he can find Starks on Rampage! If not, just stop! Starks is over it, he is so sick of it! This is the craziest thing he’s been a part of his whole life!
Starks is issuing the open challenge to Juice. If Juice accepts it or not, is a man or not, Starks doesn’t give a damn anymore. The Absolute will be waiting, but will the Booster oblige?

The Lightning From Down Under has been striking down “spoiled rookies” again and again, but in the Dark. Will she do so again in the spotlight of Dynamite? Or will Skye roll the Storm away?
The bell rings and Storm BLASTS Skye with a forearm! Then she stomps a mudhole into Skye in the corner! The ref counts, Storm lets off but she grins and soaks up the heat.

The AAA Mega Championship match that was meant to happen in December of 2021 was denied because of injury and misfortune. But now we are all fortunate enough to have this match happen here! “HE was the longest reigning Mega Champion at 765 days, 292 days more than El Hijo del Vikingo. HE never lost that title. HE is undefeated in singles matches in Mexico and also on Dynamite. Many people say HE is also undefeated at life. HE is often complimented on his accomplishments, matches, chiseled physique and hair, yet he is personally proud of his win-loss record in Independence, Missouri, which is better than his record of 1-1 in… NOOOORTH CAROLINA~!
“He arrives tonight after his 833 mile journey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Weighing 224 pounds, HE is…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The fans go wild for the Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and Don Callis’ God of Pro-Wrestling, but will Omega prove he is better than the Mega Champion?

This was a dream match the moment it was made, but this became an all-time classic by the end! Tony Schiavone joins Callis and Omega in the ring to say this was an incredible match. Omega is back in singles competition, and that was one for the ages! Omega thanks Schiavone for that. The more time goes by, the more he wonders if he can still do this kind of stuff for the fans. Wait, wait! THE BCC JUMPS OMEGA!! Moxley, Claudio & Yuta all mug Omega, and fans boo while Callis can only shout at the ref to stop this!

Fans continue to boo, but wait! Sirens? An ambulance has returned? For who? Wait, HANGMAN is driving it!! The Cowboy has a 2×4, with nails in it!

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

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