Adam Cole heads to the ring!
Raleigh fires up as he, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly are here together. Cole gets a mic and asks, “Who’s ready for story time with Adam Cole, baybay? 2021 was a great year for the three of us. And 2022 is going to be even better. Because let me remind each and every one of you, I have not been pinned since I’ve been here in AEW. I have not been made to submit, and I am undefeated in singles competition. And on top of that, the boys are back together!” Cole, Kyle and Fish, the baddest team on God’s green! “Boy sand girls, it’s a new era here in AEW.” But wait, whoa. The Young Bucks would like to know what’s going on here.
Seeing how Matt Jackson kicked COVID’s ass in just two days, he and Nick could join them. Thanks for the invite. Kyle says with love and respect, there was no invite for the Bucks in Jacksonville, but that didn’t stop them and “Landon” from going to the ring during their match with the Super Friends. They didn’t need help winning that. Fair, fair. Kyle is right. Matt and Nick say reDRagon are one of the best team sin pro-wrestling. They didn’t need that help. The Bucks will play nice. But they want to make one thing clear: “This is our company. We are the longest reigning AEW Tag Team Champions in company history.” And their new year’s resolution is to get those belts back.
Wow so funny, reDRagon has that same resolution! Fish, tell ’em! Yes, the exact same resolution. And there is not a single team on this planet that will stand between Kyle, Fish and those titles. And that includes the Bucks. Cole is excited, and this is what they need: some friendly competition. This is what makes them the very best! It’s what makes them the greatest faction in AEW. Just look at the other factions. Best Friends? “What an absolute joke!” But speaking of, here come Best Friends! Orange Cassidy, Trent, Chuck Taylor, Wheeler Yuta and even Kris Statlander get in the ring with Cole and his friends.
“For the love of God, would someone cut that stupid music off?” Cole tells Cassidy, “What could you possibly have to say that is of any importance whatsoever?” Cassidy then TACKLES Cole! And the fight is on! Cassidy rains down forearms on Cole while Trent SPEARS Matt! Kyle and Fish go after Yuta, Nick SUPERKICKS Trent! Chuck gives Nick a SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE! Kyle hits Chuck with a ROLLING ELBOW! Fish throws Yuta out, but Cassidy is still raining down on Cole! The Bucks and reDRagon take the fight to the others, but Cutler gets in, to be DUMPED out onto them all! But Cole LOW BLOWS Cassidy!
But Statlander stands in Cole’s way! Cole talks trash, but here comes Britt Baker! Britt CLOBBERS Statlander to hit a CURB STOMP! DMD then sets Cassidy up for Cole’s SUPERKICK! And then THE BOOM! Cole and all his friends stand tall, and then he sets up for the Bucks. But before they can give Cole kisses on the cheek, Britt steps in to give him a kiss on the lips! Will AEW be all about The Boom from now until the end of time?
AEW takes a closer look at Wardlow.
“They call him, ‘The Conductor of Violence,’ who strikes fear in all men. He is the maestro who orchestrates destruction with his encore of violence, over and over and over and over again. But is this timeless tale with an unforgettable ending doomed to end in tragedy? Or will his Symphony of Powerbombs live forever?” We find out if this is the night the music dies, after the break.
CM Punk VS Wardlow w/ MJF!

But Wardlow stays up! Punk runs, LARIAT, but Wardlow is still up! Punk hits another LARIAT, Wardlow just wobbles.

But Wardlow gets Punk up, POWERBOMB! Wardlow fires up and MJF mockingly asks, “What’s the matter, Punk?!” Wardlow gets Punk up again, POWERBOMB! That’s one encore, are we going to see the symphony?

MJF gets in the ring, he demands the music stop playing, and then he stares Wardlow in the eyes. “You will never the big match!” MJF is blaming Wardlow?! And he shoves Wardlow! And he jabs his finger into Wardlow’s chest! Wardlow grabs that finger, MJF tries to remind him who the boss is, but here comes Shawn Spears! The Chair Man keeps the peace in the Pinnacle, but Wardlow storms off. Can not even an accountabilibuddy help patch up the damage MJF’s ego has done?
Dante Martin VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Ricky Starks!
Angel Dorado was almost Angel Diamante if not for Absolute making sure he didn’t win the Dynamite Diamond Ring. Will Team Taz’s personal titan make sure Dante doesn’t even get a chance at another match after tonight? Or can Dante use what he’s learned since his previous match with Hobbs on top of his incredible speed to finally turn the tide?
Dante and Hobbs don’t even wait for the bell, Dante rushes Hobbs at the ramp and a brawl is on! Hobbs knees Dante, throws him in, the bell rings, and Dante ENZIGURIS! And ENZIGURIS!

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.
James Marvez says Pro-Wrestling Illustrated named The Inner Circle as their Faction of the Year for 2021. Jericho says that is a great honor, but it is no surprise. Since day one in AEW, their mission statement never wavered. They promised to take over the company, the country, and the world! They are the biggest, baddest band of blood brothers this world has ever seen. That is why during Sammy Guevara’s match with Daniel Garcia, if “Terrence & Philip” get involved, the Inner Circle will cut them down. Eddie Kingston pops in and says hey to Jericho. Still talking about all those guys? Jericho should mind his business.
Kingston says no one cares about Sammy, especially not Kingston. Kingston just wants after Garcia, because of what he did to Kingston’s knee. It’s all messed up. As for Santana & Ortiz, the reason they’re not world tag team champions is Jericho. Jericho tells Kingston to shut his mouth. Kingston tells Jericho to make him. Jericho says the Inner Circle is family. It doesn’t matter what happens on the streets of New York or in the indies, but in the big leagues, The Inner Circle dominates! They and Sammy Guevara! So Kingston can just get outta here! Santana speaks up, saying they should get this s*it together.
Kingston asks Ortiz his opinion, but Ortiz just leaves. Jake Hager follows them out, and Kingston says so much for Jericho’s brothers. Jericho says he is going to be in Sammy’s corner. If Kingston wants to be ringside, fine. But keep in mind, if 2point0 gets involved, Jericho will kick their asses. If Kingston gets involved, Jericho might kick his ass, too. Kingston’s begging Jericho to try. Jericho says Kingston can GFY for now, but will the Mad King do no such thing?
MJF storms back out in a tantrum.
“I hate to interrupt this program, even though I’m the only real star on it… You keep your hillbilly mouths shut while I’m talking!” MJF knows Punk is still backstage and in a world of pain. But he won, congrats. Fans call MJF an A-Hole, but MJF knows that Punk got powerbomb’d to oblivion! That was a fluke victory over an oaf! But Punk won’t win next week! MJF makes sure Punk takes his first L in AEW! Next week, MJF will give us the watch we’ve all been waiting for! NO more running, no more hiding! You want that match?! Then next week, CM PUNK VS SHAWN SPEARS! Even when he’s pissed, MJF is a coward. Will the Chair Man find a way to stop the Best in the World?
Cole and friends speak.
Kyle asks Landon to let them know when they’re live. Matt & Nick correct him, it’s Brandon. You sure? Cutler is touched the Bucks stood up for him, but then they tell him to shut up. Cole tells Best Friends that these five have whooped them over and over and over again. It’s gotten to a point where it’s just getting silly. Even Kris Statlander. She thought she was safe, but guess again. Britt walks in to say hey. Adam and Britt would officially like to challenge Statlander & Cassidy to a Mixed Tag Match next Dynamite. See you there! Cut, Brandon Butler. No, it’s Cutler. SHUT UP, BLANDON! Shut up! No eye contact!
Hangman Page is here!
The AEW World Champion is here, having gotten past Bryan Danielson with last week’s TBS premiere. But then, who is next? Hangman gets the mic, and he says, “These past two months, I’ve spent 90 minutes in this ring against one of the best in the world. I have poured sweat, I have spilt enough blood, to float a battleship, all for this. The ultimate prize, the most important thing in all of wrestling, the AEW World Championship. And it’s still mine, dammit!” Fans cheer for that. But Hangman says 90 minutes is just not enough. It is a new year, and the records have all reset. The Hangman needs a new challenger.
“I really hate to interrupt,” says Dan Lambert. Hangman wants someone to shoot him now. But Lambert says seeing Hangman in the ring reminds him of the cowboys he used to watch. Guys like Cowboy Bill Watts from Oklahoma, Stan “The Lariat” Hansen of Borger, Texas, and Terry & Dory Funk Jr. from Amarillo. Now we get Hangman, “The East Coast Urban Cowboy” all the fans can relate to. Hangman says he’s here for a challenger. If Scorpio or Ethan want a shot, they can just come and tell him to his face. He definitely didn’t want to hear from the walking Facebook profile like Lambert. So he can just go ahead and spit out what he wants to say.
Lambert wants Hangman to understand, he came out here to compliment Hangman. Lambert gets how good Hangman is. Those matches with Bryan are among the best Lambert’s seen in 40+ years of being a fan. But the thing Lambert respects most is the fact that Hangman didn’t take the Cody Rhodes path of backstage politics. When Hangman won the title and the idiot fans chanted, “You Deserve It,” Hangman looked them all in the eye and told them, “No, I earned it.” And Hangman is right, he has earned everything he has in this company. Except this persona he’s using as a gimmick.
That guy in the Village People can put on jeans and a hat and sing YMCA, but that doesn’t make him a cowboy. So Hangman should do himself a favor: Keep the title, the money, the adulation of the fans, and all that comes with it. But for the love of God, stop disrespecting the legacies of the Dick Murdochs and Blackjack Mulligans that preceded Hangman, because anybody coming from the Carolinas or the Virginias pretending they’re something they aren’t “just comes across as being completely full of cowboy sh*t.”
Fans boo but Hangman wants to get this right. Growing up on a farm 90 miles from here, with 100 head of cattle, isn’t cowboy sh*t? Turning down six figure contracts to come here, help start this company, then win the world title isn’t cowboy sh*t? Well, Hangman came looking for a challenger but got Lambert instead, so how about Lambert get in the ring and let Hangman shove his size 12s up his ass and show him who the real cowboy is? Well that ain’t happening, so Lambert will take his leave. But here comes LANCE ARCHER! The Murderhawk Monster still has unfinished business with Lambert!
Lambert gets in the ring, he says this is the company’s fault! Lambert even had milk cartons out for Archer! The world champion is right there, don’t miss this opportunity! Archer reels back, but he CLOBBERS Hangman! Maybe he heard Lambert at the end there! Lambert runs away, Archer stomps away on Hangman! Archer JAMS Hangman with a chair! And then SMACKS him on the back with it! Lambert counts his lucky stars as Archer sets the chair up, puts Hangman in a corner and fires a BIG haymaker! Archer hoists Hangman up top, inverted crucifix, BLACKOUT onto the chair!! Fans boo but will Archer crush Hangman and take the title from the wreckage?
Backstage interview with the Arn, Brock Anderson & Lee Johnson.
Tony Schiavone is sure they’ll all be scouting tonight’s TNT Championship main event, but this is quite the tag team, too. Arn is so proud of Brock & Lee, and they know it. Arn just told them that they’ll experience something they haven’t. You can smell it, you can feel it. This is Four Horsemen country. But then FTR walk in and applaud, because Arn is right. Tully Blanchard says you can smell it and feel it. But if you wanna relive it, get rid of the deadweight and join The Pinnacle. Cash Wheeler says they may be blood, but The Pinnacle can do more for the Anderson name than Brock ever could.
Dax Harwood is pretty sure he’s the son Arn wishes he had. But how about the greatest tag team on God’s green earth take on Brock & Lee? Brock’s fine with it. Lee says let’s do it. Tully and Arn shake on it and Dax says, “See you next week, Dad.” Will the Son of the Enforcer and Big Shotty be able to shoot down FTR?
AEW hears from Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling.
Sterling says Jade did it just as they said she would, and now she has the TBS Championship. And having a title means more money in the winner’s purse! Jade says for herself that she did everything she said she would when she first stepped foot in AEW. This is her title, and we are all watching #ThatBitchShow. Who will be the first to step up and challenge Jade for that title? Will they even stand a chance of taking it from her?
Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb!
The Full Metal Warrior and the Professor of Professional Wrestling have gone back and forth, and things have only gotten meaner and nastier. Will this fourth time be the final time? Or just another in a long series of showdowns?
Speaking of nasty, Deeb attacks Shida from behind on the ramp with a CHOP BLOCK! Deeb takes Shida’s kendo stick, kicks Shida down, then stalks Shida. “You want this?!” But Shida kicks the stick away! Deeb drags Shida up, EuroUppers, then gets the leg to SMASH it against the steel steps! Deeb goes in the ring to soak up the heat and the ref checks on Shida. Deeb wants Shida to get in the ring and Shida refuses to let this stop her. Shida hops up on one good foot, drags herself up the steps and into the ring, and the bell sounds! Deeb goes fight after Shida in the corner, stomps a mudhole, but lets off as the ref counts 4.
Fans boo but Deeb just drags Shida up to put the good leg on the rope and DRAGON SCREW the bad one! Deeb puts the foot on the ropes for a STRADDLE ATTACK! And another! And then another! Fans boo more but Deeb just soaks it up. Shida gets up to throw a body shot but she falls over on the one good leg. Deeb stomps away on the bad leg, then hits a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Deeb digs at the kneepad to bring it down but Shida throws hands. Deeb SLAPS Shida, fans rally up but Deeb tears the KT tape away! The ref reprimands, but Deeb gets an arm. Deeb turns Shida over into the omoplata, and she SMASHES away on the knee! SERENITY LOCK!!
Shida endures, reaches out, but the ref is calling it!
Winner: Serena Deeb, by referee stoppage
Deeb wins by stacking the deck before the match even started. Shida is pissed, she didn’t give up, but the medic gets in the ring. Deeb gets Shida’s kendo stick back, and she storms up to swing at the ref! And at the medic! They get out of the ring, and Deeb fires off on Shida’s leg! Deeb wants to destroy Shida, but more referees rush out to stop her! Shida’s friends, Anna Jay, Tay Conti and Skye Blue also go out to make sure Deeb doesn’t go back for more. Deeb says mission accomplished, but will she have to watch her back for when Shida returns for revenge?
Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Jurassic Express.
Schiavone talks with Captain Charisma and the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions, and that is music to Christian’s ears. First off, well wishes to Rey Fenix, they hope he heals up and comes back soon. Schiavone asks Jungle Boy what’s next, and he says it’s whoever wants a piece. JB & Luchasaurus worked hard to get the titles, they’ll work even harder to keep the titles. So any of the top five teams, they can come get some. In walk the Dark Order’s John Silver & Alex Reynolds. They want some top five? Christian says yes, so if these to happen to see one, send them their way. Whoa, okay. They are top five! Top five hunks, top five meat, top five tag team!
And if you’re throwing out challengers, what about Friday? They can go on a double date: Jurassic Express with Silver’s & Reynold’s fists! JB says that’s good to him, and Luchasaurus roars his agreement. The tag champions are going on a Rampage, will they make it through Number Three and Number Four to take on the rest of the Top Five?
Matt Hardy w/ Private Party VS Penta El Zero M w/ Alex Abrahantes!
Carolina’s own Big Money Matt is here, and he says, “Penta, I’m so sorry your brother got injured in the downfall of the Lucha Bros. But your downfall truly began when my team of five beat your team of five a few weeks ago on Dynamite.” So tonight, in Hardy’s backyard of Raleigh, and in front of his beautiful family, Hardy will DELETE Penta and send him to the hospital to join Fenix. Will Penta show that Cero Miedo can’t be deleted, even in Hardy Country?
The bell rings, Penta and Hardy circle as fans rally up. Penta tells Hardy, “LISTEN! CERO! MIEDO!” But Hardy counters with “DELETE!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “DELETE!” Repeat. Penta decides to dramatically take off his glove, tosses it to Alex, touchdown! “CERO! MIE-” DELETE! Penta sobats, headlocks, Hardy powers out and runs Penta over! Hardy spams DELETE, but runs into a SUPERKICK! Penta struts to the corner, stands Hardy up to run and… CHOP! Uno! Penta CHOPS again, and says dos! Penta swings but Hardy dodges to CHOP, and AEW goes picture in picture!
Hardy CHOPS again, and he says that’s two! Hardy CHOPS and he gets three! Hardy whips, Penta goes up and over in the corner to clothesline, GAMANGIRI, and then sweep the legs for a running SUPERKICK! Hardy bails out, Quen & Kassidy are there, but Penta runs in, to DIVE into a haymaker! Hardy drags Penta out to RAM him into steel steps! Hardy then bumps Penta off the apron, and again, and then whips him into railing! Penta slumps down, Hardy refreshes the count, mocks Cero Miedo and throws down fists! Hardy puts Penta back in, soaks up the cheers and jeers, then scoops to SLAM Penta down! Hardy goes up the corner, powers up, and hits the AX HANDLE! Cover, TWO!

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Leyla Hirsch & Red Velvet.
Schiavone is with this trio as this Friday, they will be on Rampage in a 3v3. But Schiavone wants to talk about Statlander teaming with Cassidy for Dynamite’s Mixed Tag Match next week. Statlander says that’s right, Schiavone’s good friend, Britt, is- Leyla speaks up, wanting them to not be selfish. They have the Rampage match first. Shouldn’t Statlander focus on that first? Selfish? Statlander isn’t the one that is always trying to get the pin. Statlander wants to help all her friends. If she couldn’t handle it, she wouldn’t have accepted it, so just let Statlander make her own decisions.
Velvet speaks up to keeps the peace. If they even stand a chance this Friday against Nyla Rose, Penelope Ford & The Bunny, Velvet needs them both to get it together. Be cool. Hirsch and Statlander promise to keep this civil, but will it only become a civil war on Rampage?
The Acclaimed VS Bear Country!
Max Caster & Anthony Bowens are currently the #1 ranked team in AEW, with the most tag wins in AEW history already at 32. And as always, Platinum Max has a diss rap on deck. “The Acclaimed leaving opponents all motionless. They ain’t got a shot, like Novak Djokovic. We got Carolina jumpin’, and Bear Country’s got erectile dysfunction. It’s just what I imagined. Y’all look way worse after the 10 Year Challenge. And this goes out to Darby & Sting. Y’all’re too bitch to even walk in our ring.” Bowens shouts to Raleigh that The Acclaimed have arrived, but will Bear Boulder & Bear Bronson take that top spot from them?
The bell rings and Bear Country runs The Acclaimed over with stereo shoulder tackles! Boulder & Bronson DECK each of them, then they get each of them up! Bronson scoop SLAMS Caster, then Boulder trophy lifts Bowens to SLAM him onto Caster! Bronson SENTONS them both, and fans fire up as Bronson drags Bowens over. Bronson bumps Bowens off the buckle, tags Boulder in, and then whips Boulder in for a back elbow! Boulder feeds Bowens to Bronson’s own back elbow, then Boulder drags Bowens back up. Tag to Bronson, Boulder feeds Bowens to Bronson’s scoop. Bowens slips out to shove the Bears into each other!
Tag to Caster, then Bowens fires off with haymakers and CHOPS on repeat! Caster climbs, Bowens SUPERKICKS Bronson, then Caster CROSSBODIES! Caster air guitars and fires up as AEW goes picture in picture.
Caster chokes Bronson on the ropes while also throwing down punches. The ref counts, Caster lets off, and Bowens chokes Bronson on the ropes! Bowens gets away with it, Caster throws hands but Bronson fights out of the Acclaimed corner! Caster drop toeholds and basement dropkicks Bronson down! Cover, TWO! Caster CLUBS Bronson, bumps him off buckles, and he tags Bowens in. The Acclaimed mugs Bronson, then double suplexes him! Cover, TWO! Bowens throws forearms and elbows on Bronson over and over, CLUBS Bronson down, then says, “Everyone loves The Acclaimed!”
Bowens drags Bronson up, but Bronson resists the whip to reach for Boulder. Bowens holds on, Bronson throws forearms, but Bowens holds on. Bowens ducks a forearm for a straitjacket NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Bowens grows frustrated while Bronson grits his teeth and shakes his head. Bowens gets Bronson up, he tags Caster, and The Acclaimed mug Bronson more. Caster lets off as the ref counts, then he tags Bowens back in. They mug Bronson more, Bowens turns Bronson and hits another NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Bowens wraps on a chinlock and he grinds Bronson down.
Bronson endures, fights up, and AEW returns to single picture as he throws back elbows. Bowens knees low, reels Bronson in, but Bronson is too big for even the Five Tool Player to bomb! Bronson back drops then SITS on Bowens! Fans fire up, Bronson crawls, hot tags to Caster and Boulder! Boulder rallies on the Acclaimed, DOUBLE LARIATS! Boulder scoops and SLAMS Caster, then FLAPJACKS Bowens! Caster staggers over, Boulder gets him and Bowens in choke grips. The Acclaimed both kick free, then run, into DOUBLE SWINGING SHOTS! Tag to Bronson, and the Bears combine! Bear Electric Chair, but Bowens drags Caster away from the BEAR BOMB!
Bowens dumps Boulder out but he comes right back, only for Bowens’ ROLLING ELBOW to take him down! But Bronson clotheslines Bowens out of the ring! Caster rolls Bronson up, TWO! Bronson DECKS Caster! Caster goes to a corner, Bronson runs in, but Caster dodges and Bronson hits buckles! Caster distracts the ref, Bowens HOTSHOTS Bronson down! Caster hurries up top, MIC DROP ELBOW! Cover, The Acclaimed win!
Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall
The number one team stays the number one team! They’re rolling on, but will Bowens & Caster look to go from platinum to gold? Wait, as they exit, it’s the snow, the crow, and… STIIIIING! Sting has his baseball bat and he backs The Acclaimed back down the ramp. Darby FLIES in from the ring!! Down goes Caster, and then Sting CLOBBERS Bowens! Bowens crawls for his boombox but Sting SMACKS it with the bat! Darby puts Caster back in the ring, runs in corner to corner, COFFIN SPLASH! Sting joins Darby in the ring, Sting drags Caster up into the SCORPION DEATH DROP! Will the Icon and the Relentless One prove The Acclaimed are all talk?
AEW hears from PAC.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Bastard. Your sight may never return. You may never see again.” Again… Here we go again. Pac is alone and desolate. Is this just another setback? Is it ever going to come back? Malakai may have blinded Pac, but he sees everything. “And it’s funny. I’m not angry. I appreciate the blessing.” Now Pac’s perspective is different. And his vision has never been so clear. Will the blinded Bastard look to tear down the House of Black soon enough?
Backstage interview with Matt Hardy & Private Party.
Schiavone knows this loss wasn’t what Hardy wanted in his home state, and Hardy says no, it isn’t. This is very frustrating. Maybe Hardy is too focused on the future of AEW, the HFO and his team. Maybe Hardy should focus more on Hardy, because something has to change. But then in walks Andrade El Idolo. Tranquilo, Hardy, take it easy. Penta is not worth it. Andrade offers Hardy water and whiskey. Hardy hands the boys the alcohol. Andrade does agree, Hardy needs to focus. He is a businessman, and Andrade is a businessman, and they both love money. Andrade wants to work with Hardy on a deal. This will benefit Hardy, and of course it will benefit Andrade.
Hardy is intrigued. He’d love to talk business with Andrade. Not in front of the world, though. They’ll go to Hardy’s office. Is Big Money Matt moving on from Private Party to El Idolo?
Interim AEW TNT Championship: Sammy Guevara VS Daniel Garcia!
Cody Rhodes took the title on Christmas, but wasn’t medically cleared to defend it for Battle of the Belts. The Spanish God defeated the Natural substitute, but now has Red Death in his face. Will Sammy still be the one waiting for Cody’s return? Or will Garcia take that away from Sammy and move on to the American Nightmare?
Jericho and Kingston are uneasily both in Sammy’s corner, though 2point0 apparently stayed in the back. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who leaves Carolina with the gold!
Garcia and Sammy tie up right away, break, then tie up again. Garcia waistlocks, Sammy headlocks for the takeover, but Garcia headscissors. Garcia moves around, pops free, but Garcia SLAPS! Sammy SLAPS, Garcia goes for a leg but Sammy drags him down and the two scrap. Sammy has the top mount but Garcia still hits back. Fans are fired up as Sammy has Garcia in a corner and the hands keep flying. The ref calls for the break but Garcia gets a cheap shot! The ref reprimands, Garcia drags Sammy up to EuroUpper! Garcia CLUBS Sammy on the neck, then brings Sammy around to snapmare and KICK in the back!
Sammy gets up in a huff to kick, snapmare and KICK in return! Garcia is up, he SLAPS, but Sammy SLAPS back. Garcia is rocked, Sammy clotheslines him right out! Sammy then runs and TORNILLOS to take Garcia out! Sammy poses on the floor and fans are all fired up! Sammy drags Garcia up, Kingston is there and talking trash to both Sammy and Garcia, and Sammy puts Garcia in. Sammy drags Garcia up, CHOPS him, and then follows Garcia to a corner. Sammy CHOPS Garcia again, then follows Garcia across the way. Garcia kicks, but Sammy dodges the chop to CHOP Garcia down!
Garcia pushes Sammy but Sammy gets a facelock to snap suplex Garcia real tight! Cover, ONE, but Sammy keeps Garcia down. Sammy sits Garcia up, slashes the throat and then torture racks! Garcia fights free, waistlocks but Sammy switches. Sammy shoves Garcia, hurdles over then flips over, but jumps into a BACKBREAKER! Sammy bails out and Garcia checks his teeth as AEW goes picture in picture.
Garcia goes out to fetch Sammy, drags him up and RAMS him into the apron! Garcia puts Sammy in, covers, TWO! Garcia mockingly applauds Sammy’s toughness, then drops knees into Sammy’s back. Sammy goes to a corner, Garcia stalks him and then digs his boot into him again and again on the ropes! Sammy tries to kick back but Garcia drags him up to CHOP him! Garcia whips, Sammy ducks and dodges to sunset flip! Garcia rolls through, gets the legs, and turns Sammy for a BOSTON CRAB! Sammy endures, Garcia sits deep on the hold and stares Jericho down, but Sammy gets to the ROPEBREAK!
Garcia lets off, kicks Sammy’s hand off the rope, then paces. Kingston talks some trash but Garcia drags Sammy to dig a knee into his back. Garcia ties up the legs, hooks an arm, and has the Bow ‘n’ Arrow stretch! Garcia bends Sammy way back, but Sammy pops to a cover, TWO! Garcia gets up to CLOBBER Sammy with an elbow! Cover, TWO! Garcia is annoyed, but he talks trash back to Kingston. The ref keeps Kingston out of the ring, Garcia stands on Sammy’s head. Garcia drags Sammy up as AEW returns to single picture.

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall (still Interim AEW TNT Champion)
Garcia’s pals failed to help him, and David Crockett gives this title to Sammy. But then 2point0 come back for more as they attack Sammy! Kingston and Jericho get in! Jericho CLOBBERS 2point0, and he uses Floyd the baseball bat on Parker! Kingston doesn’t get his turn, and he’s pissed with Jericho! Kingston says Jericho is selfish, but they’re both forgetting about their common enemies! Will Garcia & 2point0 continue to take advantage while the Mad King and Le Champion keep fighting each other?
A great episode of Dynamite here, and a lot of great story blending as usual. Cole and his many mutual friends had a really good segment, and I like that Kyle kept up the gag of calling Cutler “Landon.” And I like that this is how they have Cole and Britt interact onscreen, them beating up Cassidy and Statlander. Their Mixed Tag next week is going to be really good, and it was also good that Statlander having to balance her many mutual friends is putting stress on the tension already going on between her and Hirsch. The Six Woman Tag of Hirsch, Velvet & Statlander VS Nyla, Ford & Bunny is going to be really good, but could also be the moment that breaks up the friendship.
We got a really good Wardlow vignette, and what great stuff with him, Punk and MJF. MJF actually encouraging Wardlow to do more damage, then demanding Wardlow do more damage, and it costing Punk was a classic trope in action. I was really hoping tonight was Wardlow’s night to turn on MJF, but it seems Wardlow is still in The Pinnacle and he could still wait until he wins the TNT title to clobber MJF with. And then I totally forgot about Spears, I should’ve known MJF would use him, too. As for the rest of The Pinnacle, I like that FTR & Tully confront Arn. Arn’s got a team he’s coaching, Tully has a team he’s coaching, pitting them against each other is great stuff.
Dante VS Hobbs was great stuff, and I really find it surprising that it was Jay Lethal who helped Dante against Hobbs and Starks. Lio Rush is surely still dealing with family things after his grandmother’s death, so he couldn’t be here to obviously support Dante. Lethal joining Lio and Dante would be a great next step for Lio’s faction and Lethal’s time in AEW. Hangman Page had a great segment, even with Lambert involved, because Hangman had great burns on Lambert. Lance Archer returning was a great surprise, and what a swerve with him going after Hangman. Rankings wise, Archer might still have to fight his way up to the world title, but even just one of those contender eliminator matches between Hangman and Archer is going to be awesome.
Cargill and Sterling have a decent promo but Cargill’s lines were literally recycled from a video package we got on Battle of the Belts. I feel like we could’ve gotten her squashing a rando seen on Elevation or Dark in this same space of time to let actions speak for her. We did get Shida VS Deeb as the literal midcard match here, and I appreciate the story beat of Deeb basically cheating to win because of the pre-match attack, but couldn’t AEW have given this match a little more time to really milk Deeb’s viciousness and Shida’s toughness? I do appreciate that Shida has allies stepping up for her, and Deeb will probably tear into Skye Blue just as bad as she did Shida.
Good promo from Christian Cage & Jurassic Express, as well as the interaction with Silver & Reynolds. Their tag title match on Rampage is going to be great stuff, but I’m pretty sure Jurassic Express wins. The Acclaimed are #1 team for now, with the win over Bear Country, but that felt like filler just to give Sting & Darby a reason to come out and attack. What happened to the diss track video? Caster promised it, I hope we get it on Rampage or next week’s Dynamite to hype up the match with Sting & Darby that The Acclaimed are going to end up losing. Then maybe Darby & Sting work their way up towards the titles for a killer match with Jurassic Express.
Hardy VS Penta was great stuff, and Penta won big here. Everything with Malakai and the Blonds and then Brody King showing up was great. The House of Black is building, but I almost thought Julia Hart was going to reveal she’s a member of the team since she was the one telling everyone to stop beating Malakai up. Pac has a really good vignette, I can’t wait to see him take off the blindfold to have crazy looking eyes just like Malakai, and then they have an awesome match. Then I like that Andrade is making a deal with Hardy, and honestly, the HFO has spun its wheels so letting everyone loose might help Private Party and The Blade & The Butcher get going in the tag division again.
Kingston had a good interaction with the Inner Circle, and I like the parts Kingston and Jericho played in the main event. Sammy and Garcia had an awesome match, really gritty stuff, and commentary even reminded us how young these two are, so these two are only going to get better. This could even be a feud that propels these two through the next few years. Sammy winning was natural, as was 2point0 going after him to get Kingston and Jericho involved in the ring. This is still leading me to think of the “can they coexist?” tag match of Kingston & Jericho against 2point0, and that could go any which way. We might even end up with Kingston VS Jericho if 2point0 gets the better of them.
My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY
The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!
Philly is fired up to sing Judas for Le Champion as he leads the way out for Tay Melo, Sammy Guevara, Anna Jay “A S,” “Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard, “Cool Hand” Angelo Parker, and a less than enthused Daniel Garcia. And no, it has nothing to do with them all wearing matching purple satin suits. The JAS goes to the ring where there is a purple carpet, purple balloons, golden number 8 balloons to acknowledge this is #OCHO for Jericho, and wow! Luigi Primo is there spinning pizza dough! Seems he catered this event for the JAS. Fans cheer but Parker gets the mic to say, “AEW Galaxy… APPRECIATE US!”
Parker says if there’s one thing we all know about Philly, it’s that Philly is the city of LOSERS! Fans boo that but Parker knows they’re not used to championship celebrations. But don’t worry, the JAS is here to give them that gift! Everyone, stand up and join in celebrating THE OCHOOOO~! Fans are a bit torn, but Menard says “What a celebration we have for you tonight! Daddy Magic put the call in to the pizza guy, Luigi Primo,” who is still spinning dough. Luigi, Daddy Magic loves a bit o’ the pizza. What kind of pizza did Luigi make for them tonight? He made the best pizza! From NEW YORK CITY!
That’s right! Philly thought they were getting a taste? “I DON’T THINK SO! No pizza for you! No pizza for you! No pizza for anybody!” Anna says NONE of the fans get pizza. Fans chant, “We Want Pizza!” Anna tells them to shut up! They don’t shut up. “I’LL CHOKE YOU OUT!” They don’t care! Anna says they do get the greatest ROH World Champion of all time, #THEOCHO, Chris Jericho~! Fans are again torn. Jericho takes the mic now and says, “You guys want pizza?” “YES!” “You can’t have any. What you can have is the most important ROH champion in history, THE OCHO, Chris Jericho!
“Everyone knows I’m the most honorable man in AEW, and now it’s official. I’m also the most viewed ROH champion. In just one week, more people have seen me win this belt than all other ROH champions put together, cuz no one knows about ROH! But you’re about to! Because I’m gonna change the way ROH is remembered. This is the era of the Ring of Jericho. And I’m gonna start tonight,” as the others dig into the pizza, “by having my first title defense against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers today, former ROH Champion, BANDIDO.” Fans cheer for that!
Jericho knows Bandido “never got the rematch for this championship that he deserves, I’m gonna give it to him tonight. Trust me, the man is gonna blow your mind. But trust me once again, he is a pro-wrestler, and like I always say, sports entertainers beat pro-wrestlers every single time.” Fans boo but the JAS applaud. And speaking of sports entertainer, it’s the ROH Pure Champion, Danny Garcia! Fans cheer for Garcia and Jericho knows they’ve had some miscommunications and some issues, but Jericho wants Garcia to know that Garcia is an amazing champion, an amazing sports entertainer, and he bought a gift just for Garcia.
Fans chant, “You’re a Wrestler!” but Garcia accepts the Gift of Jericho. It’s… a purple bucket hat! Jericho puts it on him! YES! That is the look of the Best Technical Sports Entertainer of All Time! Garcia doesn’t look happy, though. Garcia takes the hat off and fans cheer! Garcia throws it down and fans cheer more! And then Garcia DECKS Luigi! Fans boo that a bit but Garcia gets a mic. “This is enough. Chris, this is enough. This isn’t me. This is never what I envisioned myself doing when I wanted to get into this business. And I tolerated it for a little bit, but I think I’ve finally had enough.” Fans cheer that!
Garcia says he wants to tell Jericho something he’s been meaning to get off his chest for a long time now: “Chris… I think it’s time for me to-” Jericho cuts Garcia off by pushing the mic down. Jericho then tells Garcia to really think about what he’s about to say. “This is a crossroads for you. Make the right decision, you can be bigger than your wildest dreams in this business. Make the wrong decision, and I’m gonna have to take you out.” Jericho is going to ask Garcia just this once and Garcia needs to answer properly: “Are you a sports entertainer? Or are you a pro-wrestler?” Fans cheer for the one they wanna hear!
Garcia stares Jericho down and then brings the mic up. But then BRYAN DANIELSON makes his way out here! William Regal sees Bryan out to the stage, but the American Dragon is all alone as he approaches the ring. Bryan picks up the bucket hat to look at it. “Chris, it seems to me like you’re trying to tell Daniel Garcia what you think he should be. Garcia, listen. I have an infinite amount of respect for you. You’re a grown man. You can do whatever you want. If you wanna stay with the Jericho Appreciation Society, you can stay with them. If you wanna come to the Blackpool Combat Club,” which fans cheer loudly, “you can come with us.”
If Garcia wants to train with the JAS, or if he wants to train with the BCC. If Garcia wants to team with the JAS or if he wants to team with the BCC- Jericho tells Bryan to shut his mouth! Fans boo but Jericho says he is sick of Bryan trying to poach his guy! Garcia belongs to Jericho! Garcia does what Jericho tells him to do! Except Garcia gets in Jericho’s face! Garcia tells Jericho they’re getting one thing straight right now: Garcia does NOT belong to Jericho, and he does NOT have to do what he tells Garcia.
But let’s not get too serious now. This is supposed to be entertaining, right? So if Jericho wants sports entertainment, what if Garcia grabbed some of this pizza and he threw it on the ground. Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Garcia throws the pizza out of the ring! What if Garcia woke up Luigi Primo and started tossing dough with him? Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Justin Roberts, what if you and Garcia were a tag team? That’d be entertaining, right? Fans are more torn on that one. Garcia asks if the fans think it’d be entertaining if Garcia was in a tag team with Bryan Danielson. “YES!! YES!! YES!!”
Garcia asks Jericho if he wants to know what Garcia thinks would be really entertaining. If he and Bryan teamed up against Jericho’s little brother, Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho! Fans cheer for that one! Menard says he is sick of Garcia’s crap! For one year, when he had NOTHING and NOBODY, Menard & Parker had his back! And now Garcia wants to spit in their face and turn his back on them for “this piece of crap right here?” Menard oughta punch Bryan in the face and knock him out right now! Bryan says, “Right now? Wait, do you wanna punch me right now? Right here, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania?” Fans want it!
Well then, Bryan has good news! He was told that he can come out here and have a match with anyone who wants to fight him! And Menard said he wanted to fight, so why don’t we do the “Entertainer,” Daddy Magic VS “The Heart of Professional Wrestling,” Bryan Danielson! And right here, right now!! Menard is fired up, the rest of the JAS holds him back, but will the American Dragon be the one doing the slaying tonight?
Bryan Danielson VS Matthew Menard w/ Angelo Parker!

BUSAIKU KNEE! And then the omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Menard taps, Bryan wins!
Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission
Blackpool Combat Club watches out for each other, and Bryan gets a win! Will this help Bryan climb up towards a title match? Will the BCC soon have Daniel Garcia and the ROH Pure title on their side?
AEW takes a closer look at Moxley VS Juice.
Tony Schiavone notes that Jon Moxley, having won the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, is now a THREE-TIME AEW World Champion, the most in history. And his interim championship reign made this year “The Summer of Moxley.” Can anyone dethrone him? Schiavone doesn’t think so. But the Bullet Club’s Booster asks, “What happened last time Jon Moxley was in the ring with Rock Hard Juice Robinson?” He of course means NJPW Capital Collision’s IWGP United States Championship Fatal 4 Way that Juice won to become the then champion. “I’ve hated this guy for ten YEARS!”
If Juice can beat Moxley in Philly, then he has a chance in Washington D.C. to face Moxley for the AEW World Championship. If Juice can do it once, can he do it again? Or will Moxley cross him off the list?
MJF is- Wait, Wheeler Yuta is here!
The Decoder storms out after watching the recap package of his encounter with MJF, and now he gets the mic! “M J F! MJF, we have a real serious problem, man. And it’s not what you think. It’s not that you’ve got this whole new army of lackeys, I could’ve seen that one coming from a few miles away. No, man, it’s not that you just tried to cheap shot me with the Dynamite Diamond Ring, because I’ve been hit a lot harder by a lot better men. Max, it’s the fact that you had the audacity to put your hands on Tony Schiavone, a man who has done more for AEW than you ever will! And Maxwell, Maxwell, I think actions should have consequences.
“And what better punishment than for you to walk down here and fight me in MY city!” Philly cheers, but Yuta then tells them sorry, don’t get too excited. We all know that Max just likes to run and hide. He liked to hide behind The Inner Circle, behind The Pinnacle, and now he’s hiding behind The Firm. He likes to hide behind that fake tan, his suits, and this very microphone. Because Max knows that once the bell rings, he can’t hang with Yuta! “So Max, if you wanna address these wonderful people in Philly, I’ll go ahead and do it for ya.
“Alright, uh, what do we got here? Charisma of drying paint, pet rock, I don’t think the Phillies have made the playoffs in like 11 years. He probably doesn’t even know that. I don’t know. But yeah, alright, what else? Can we skip to the part where we fight? Where you come down here and you take the ass kicking you deserve?!” Yuta’s fired up and here comes MJF! MJF has his music cut, and he’s wearing a Mets jersey, of course. Everyone give it up for the hometown boy, Yuta! “Philly: the place where you live if you can’t afford to live in New York!” Fans boo as MJF smiles.
But speaking of embarrassing, hi, Schiavone! How’s that body holding up after last week, “ya fat old pr*ck?” But MJF knows Schiavone won’t do anything because he’s “a lowdown coward, just like everybody in this Podunk arena! Except for you, Wheeler, I’ll give you credit, you’re not coward. We practically grew up in this sport together. I have been wrestling you up and down North America when we were on the independent circuit just trying to make a name for ourselves. And I’m not afraid to admit, you’re one of the best wrestlers in the world.
“However, you made a big mistake when you decided to go toe-to-toe on the mic with Daddy last week. And Daddy had to put you on timeout, didn’t he? Daddy had to spank you some.” MJF tells Philly to shut up while he’s got the mic. MJF finds it interesting that Yuta claims MJF doesn’t care about AEW, yet here Yuta is, taking up a lot of TV time from the biggest draw in AEW! And to make matters worse, Yuta is talking into a mic! Yuta, the… Fans tell MJF to STFU but MJF keeps going. Yuta has about as much charisma as Joe Frazier does present day. By the way, Frazier is dead! And speaking of dead, the Phillies are dead in the water and are never gonna win the World Series ever again!
Yuta’s amused that MJF actually went after the Phillies. MJF says whoops, there’s that local sports team talk. It’s almost like MJF doesn’t give an F! It’s almost like at 26 years of age, MJF doesn’t have to care, because he makes more money than everyone in this bum town! More than the people watching at home! MJF is a multi-millionaire at just 26! Yuta cuts MJF off here. Let’s make one thing very clear: Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s money; he doesn’t care about MJF’s Mets jersey; Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s scarf! If MJF doesn’t wanna fight Yuta in the ring, then Yuta will leave MJF in a pool of blood on Broad Street!! Fans cheer for that one!
MJF wants Yuta to cool off but Yuta says MJF may not know this, “but bad things happen in Philadelphia. And tonight is no exception.” Yuta rushes up the ramp but MJF gets his back-up in the Gunn Sons! Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” of The Firm, but Yuta dares them all to fight! MJF doesn’t do brawls, but if Yuta wants to wrestle, they can do that. If Yuta wants that, if the fans want that, then NO! HAHAHAHA! MJF will see Yuta in the ring next week in “Dumpy D.C.” But until then, remember this: He is… Oh, wait, the fans don’t deserve his catchphrase.
MJF will go to the skybox, watch Moxley be a horrible wrestler, and maybe cash his chip in on the Blackpool Cuckold Club. Until then, sayonara. Austin, you tell the people his catchphrase. MJF leaves as Austin takes the mic. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” some more, but Austin says “MJF is better than you… And you know it!” The Scum of the Earth is waiting for the Dynamite Anniversary to fight Yuta, but will he not wait to cash in his chips?
AEW hears from Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, and Darby Allin.
Sonjay “congratulates” Darby Allin on one hell of a win alongside Sting. But it seems Darby still has something to prove. He is sorely mistaken if he thinks he’s gonna do that against Sonjay’s best friend, Jay Lethal. Lethal says Darby will be outclassed. Darby likes to take a lot of pain, but we’ll see how much he likes walking around after Lethal breaks one of his legs with a Figure Four! Darby says everyone wants to be a champion, but how they get there can be oh so different. Darby is going to remind himself of what he is capable of when he takes on Lethal 1v1 with no Sonjay or Satnam ringside.
Lethal says Darby has something to prove, but so does Lethal! Lethal accepts the challenge and wants to beat Darby on his own. No Sonjay, no Satnam, no Sting, who will win between the Lethal and the Relentless?
AEW World Title Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Juice Robinson!
As we already heard, The Maniac is the most prolific AEW World Champion, but he still owes “Rock Hard” Robinson from Capital Collision. Will Moxley unload on Juice to move on to the next challenger? Or will Juice force Moxley into another showdown in DC?
As Moxley makes it to ringside from his bleacher side entrance, Juice CLOBBERS him! Moxley hits railing, Juice stomps away, the ref reprimands and fans boo. Juice drags Moxley up to whip him hard into railing! Juice tells the ref this ain’t his first match, and he drags Moxley up to HEADBUTT him! Moxley staggers, Juice HEADBUTTS Moxley again, and then follows him around the way. Juice puts Moxley in the ring, the bell rings, and Juice soaks up the heat with Too Sweets. Juice gets in the ring but Moxley clotheslines him up and out! Moxley throws off his shirt and storms out after Juice to whip him into railing now!
Fans fire up and the ring count climbs. Moxley drags Juice up, and snap suplexes Juice to the floor! Moxley refreshes the ring count to drag Juice up, but as MJF said, he’s in the skybox. MJF gives a thumbs down since Moxley’s in control, and Moxley THROWS Juice onto the timekeeper’s table! Juice and the table fall over, the ring count climbs again, and Moxley drags Juice up and into the ring. Juice throws hands but Moxley just gets in his face. Fans fire up, Juice throws another forearm but Moxley ROCKS Juice back! Juice throws another forearm, Moxley throws another, repeat! Fans rally as they go back and forth faster and faster!
Juice JABS and JABS and JABS, then powers up, but Moxley kicks low! Moxley fires off boxing elbows, EuroUppers, then runs, but Juice chokes and BITES Moxley! The ref reprimands, Juice lets off and Moxley goes to a corner. Juice runs in to clothesline! Moxley sits down, Juice calls his shot and he runs corner to corner, CANNON- NO, LARIAT! Moxley drags Juice back up, hooks the arms, but Juice tackles Moxley out of the ring! Moxley gets up to his feet first and goes to the railing. Moxley sits down to rest, but Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice hurries into the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.
The ring count is climbing but Moxley flounders around. The count is 7 of 10, then 8! Moxley slides in at 9! Juice is right on Moxley and he TOSSES Moxley back out! Juice then goes out after Moxley and drags him up to TOSS into the timekeeper’s area! Juice returns the favor, as he tells the ref, and then Juice gets in the ring. Juice goes back out, and Moxley’s busted open! Moxley sputters but Juice grabs him first to POST him! Juice gets in the ring to flex and soak up the heat. Moxley gets up and in but Juice looms over him. Juice sits Moxley up so he can BITE the wound!! Juice lets off as the ref counts, but he tastes Moxley’s blood!
Moxley is mad now, and he storms up to Juice. Juice ROCKS Moxley, Moxley CHOPS Juice! Juice CHOPS Moxley and Moxley falls out of the ring! Juice taunts Moxley as he staggers about. Juice goes out, MJF is talking trash to fans now, and Juice AX HANDLES Moxley down! Juice rains down fists on the bloody forehead and BITES it again! Juice lets off, wipes away Moxley’s blood, and soaks up more heat. Juice drags Moxley up to snap suplex him to the floor! Juice gets in the ring, Moxley drags himself up, but Juice is there to DECK him! Moxley goes back to the floor, and Juice AX HANDLES him down again!
Moxley ends up taking a seat in the chair, and Juice HEADBUTTS away on him! Dynamite returns to single picture, Juice lets off to go to the apron and soak up more heat. Juice CANNONBALLS but Moxley moves! Juice only gets chair!! Even MJF is wincing from that one. Moxley gets back in the ring but Juice crawls over. Fans rally for Moxley as he drags himself up. Moxley builds speed and he DIVES! Direct hit and Juice hits railing! Moxley puts Juice in the ring, Juice goes to a corner. Moxley takes aim, runs in, but Juice BOOTS him! Juice runs in, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! They go again, DOUBLE LARIATS collide even harder!
Juice roars and Moxley snarls, CUTTER OUTTA NOWHERE! Cover, TWO!! Juice survives but Moxley has the ANKLE LOCK! Moxley leans on the hold but Juice endures and moves around. Juice gets the ROPEBREAK before Moxley can step through for the STF! Moxley lets off and has Juice in a corner. Moxley rains down fists, but Juice digs fingers into the eye and forehead wound! Juice then hits a RUNNING POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Juice is frustrated but he goes to the corner. Juice climbs up top, fans rally up, and Moxley stands up. Juice jumps, into a kick! But Juice fights the underhooks to POST Moxley!
Juice then drags Moxley out, chicken wings, PULP FRICTION!! Cover, TWO!!! Moxley survives and Juice can’t believe it! Fans fire up while Juice argues with the ref. Juice calms down, he calls his shot, and he torture racks Moxley! Juice spins around, but Moxley slips out of the Rockslide to hit a REGAL KNEE!! Cover, TWO!?! But Moxley has the knuckle locks for DRAGON STOMPS! Fans fire up and Moxley clamps on an ARMBAR! Juice taps, Moxley wins!!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (denies Juice Robinson a title match)
MJF is upset, Juice didn’t do enough damage for his liking. But Moxley denies Juice a DC title match, will MJF decide to change targets? Wait! Here comes Hangman Page! The Cowboy has his golden ticket for Cincinnati, and he goes right into the ring. Fans fire up for this stare down, and the two look ready to square off! But then MJF has a mic in his skybox to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Ladies, settle down, settle down, settle down. Don’t you realize you’re not fighting each other? You’re not fighting each other, man. What you’re doing is fighting to lose. Cuz once you two morons get to Cincinnati, I just might cash my chip in and become the NEW AEW World Champion!
“Because I am a generational… talent!” But Yuta finds MJF! Fans fire up and MJF is confused. Yuta turns MJF around to fire off haymakers! And then he THRWOS MJF into the couch! Yuta fires off, he drags MJF up and he throws him into the bleachers! Security rushes in but Yuta fights them off! Yuta goes after MJF again and fans fire up, but security drags Yuta away! MJF has been saved for tonight, will MJF definitely reconsider what he’s doing in DC?
Saraya is here!
And just as Justin Roberts made sure to say, “SA-RAY-YA” is All Elite! Fans fire up to see the #Glampire go to the ring and get the mic. “Whew. I’ve got chills right now, you guys. Ahem. I’m baaaack~!” Fans chant, “Welcome Back!” and Saraya asks, “So you missed me? It feels fantastic to be back in the ring, you guys. It’s obviously been a crazy road. I’m damaged, but I’m not broken, at the end of the day.” Fans cheer that! Saraya says it’s great to be back, and it is great to be here in AEW, because she is going to create change in the division. She was the revolution before, and she’ll be the revolution here, because she IS the revolution!
Fans chant, “This is Your House!” and Saraya smiles. “It’s really hard to talk out here, guys, I’m so nervous. It’s been awhile. But AEW is officially my house.” The crew can give her time cues all they want, but she’ll leave when she’s ready. Let’s take up more time with ALL the ladies of AEW! And starting that off is Interim AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm! She leads Athena, Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Willow Nightingale, and they all go to the ring together to stand with Saraya. Saraya wants the fans to make some noise and they do. “When I said we’re gonna make a change, I promise you, we’re gonna make a change.”
Saraya wants to reintroduce us to these ladies. And she’ll start with the champ, Toni Storm. Fans cheer as Saraya says Toni is finally being utilized to her full potential. She is a fighting champion, the best champion AEW has seen! And Saraya is honored to be in the ring with Toni. But “Well, well, well.” Britt Baker leads Rebel, Jamie Hayter & Penelope Ford out. “Look what we have here, guys. Another shiny new toy. And we’ve seen them come, we’ve certainly seen them go. But until you actually earn some respect around here, all you are is a catchphrase. Unlike myself, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.”
Britt isn’t sure Saraya watches AEW, but Britt is the Face of the Women’s Division, and she’s literally put her blood, sweat and tears into this company. In fact, Britt even put her neck on the line for AEW. And unlike Saraya’s, Britt’s neck can handle it. Britt says Saraya made such a big impact, but half of the people in this room can’t even say her name. “Sa-Ray-Ya? Sa-Rye-Ya? Psoriasis?” Saraya tells Britt to stop right there. It is cute that Britt of all people are trying to make fun of Saraya’s name. “Well, doctor, your name rhymes with sh*t.” Hayter and Rebel try to tell Britt that’s not true, but then the fans chant it at her!
Britt tells Toni Storm that she respects her. She doesn’t like her, but Britt does respect her. Britt had such high hopes for Toni when she first got here, but she couldn’t keep herself away from all the problematic people in wrestling. They’re always in Toni’s corner. In fact, last week, they all knew the title was Britt’s, so Toni and her new tag partner, Athena, broke her nose to take her out! And yet again, conspiracy! But that’s not why they’re here tonight. They’re here because Toni has quite the match on her hands tonight. Serena Deeb is one of the most cold-blooded and calculating wrestlers on the planet.
Fans are chanting more for Hayter than Britt, but Britt says Toni is lucky she isn’t facing Hayter! Hayter gets her shot after Deeb. One misstep from Toni against The Professor, and they’ll be hearing the words, “AND NEW…” Britt calls for Serena, and Serena heads out! Britt wants the others to get out, their five minutes of fame are up. But Saraya has the music stop a moment. Saraya admits she hasn’t been around AEW that long, but she does have eyes and ears. She knows Britt’s crew likes to “get up to some funky stuff.” So how about this? Since she talked to Tony Khan–by the way, it’s so great to have a boss that finally listens to her!
But it was decided that they’ll make this match a Lumberjack match! The title is on the line, Toni has back-up just like Deeb does, and Saraya says it’s time to get this show on the road! Will the Wolf sink her teeth into the title to Britt’s delight? Or will it still be #ToniTime in Philly?
Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Lumberjack Match: Toni Storm VS Serena Deeb!
The bell rings, Saraya joins commentary, and fans rally for Toni. Toni and Deeb tie up, Deeb goes after an arm and wrenches to a wristlock. Toni reaches back, headlocks, but Deeb pries free to a hammerlock. Deeb wrangles Toni to the mat but Toni reaches back again. Toni rolls, hammerlocks and then gets Deeb’s other arm! Toni shows she’s got technical prowess as she flips Deeb to a cover, ONE! Toni facelocks but Deeb fights up. Deeb wrenches out, wrenches again, then headlocks. Toni endures the grind, even as Deeb thrashes. Toni powers out, Deeb RAMS shoulders but Toni comes back to run Deeb over!

Cover, TWO! Deeb hurries to get Toni up and she throws her out to the other side. Britt, Hayter and Rebel stomp away! But Athena leads the charge and they back everyone off of Storm. Saraya likes seeing this “good trouble” as AEW goes picture in picture.

Deeb is frustrated but she stomps away on Storm. Storm kicks back, Deeb kicks her to the ropes and pie faces her around. Britt and Ford talk some trash as Deeb drags Toni up for TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT!

A close call but Deeb swings again, into a roll-up! TWO! Deeb hurries to clinch but Storm fires forearms! Storm fires more and more and more shots, then ROCKS Deeb! Deeb rebounds as Dynamite returns to single picture, and Storm LARIATS Deeb down! Deeb staggers, Storm whips but Deeb reverses, only for Storm to SHOTGUN! Storm hurries to a corner and climbs up, Deeb stands for the CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!
Deeb bails out and Athena is there to bring her up. Athena puts Deeb in for Storm, and Storm GERMAN SUPLEXES! Deeb flounders to a corner and fans cheer as Storm says kiss this! But Deeb ducks the hips to victory roll, TWO! Deeb hurries to get a leg, DRAGON- NO, Storm sits on the dragon screw, TWO! Deeb sunset flips, TWO! Deeb has a body scissor for the INVERTED MOTORCYCLE! Deeb sits deep on the hold and Saraya says this is what happens when Britt is out of the equation and the women can have time. Deeb rolls Storm around into a BUTTERFLY STRETCH! Storm endures, pushes to a cover, TWO!!
Deeb lets Storm free, Storm HEADBUTTS her back! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Storm drags Deeb up, fans fire up, and Storm runs, only for Hayter to trip her up! Hayter drags Storm out, Skye storms up on Hayter, but Hayter DECKS Skye! Willow shoves Hayter, she and Hayter start brawling! Fans fire up as these two run to the back! The rest of the Lumberjacks put Storm in, Deeb hits a headlock takeover and floats to a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Omoplata, and the half crab, SERENITY LOCK! Storm endures, claws forward, but Deeb sits down to really wrench the leg! Fans still rally, and Storm reaches out!
Britt holds the ropes back, but the ref reprimands. Athena CLOBBERS Ford and Rebel, then backs Britt down! Storm gets the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets Britt go, but she drags Storm around to reel her in. Deeb tucks the arms, but Storm back drops free! Fans fire up with Storm as she goes back up top! Britt barks at Storm but Storm CROSSBODIES! Deeb rolls through! HALF CRAB!! And it is deep as Storm endures all over again! Storm grits her teeth, turns over and pushes Deeb down. Storm kicks away and Deeb stumbles into a corner! SWEET HIP MUSIC! Storm drags Deeb up, reels her in, but Deeb jackknife counters! TWO!!
Storm hits STORM ZERO!! Cover, TWO!?!? Deeb survives being spiked and no one can believe it! Deeb and Storm rise up and fans are fire dup. Storm runs in, Deeb dodges to put the legs in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW!! Britt coaches Deeb up and Deeb climbs, but Storm stands up to HEADBUTT! Storm climbs up after Deeb, Deeb throws body shots, they brawl up top and Storm gets the edge. SUPER STORM ZERO!?!? Cover, Storm wins!!!
Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (still Interim AEW Women’s World Champion)
Saraya loves seeing it! The Lightning From Down Under strikes down Deeb, who will step up to her next?
Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.
Tony Schiavone is with Billy Gunn and the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Max Caster says, “Yo, listen!” Anthony Bowens says, “Philadelphia, your AEW Tag Team Champions have arrived!” Billy says, “And right when you think that that can’t get any better, next week on Dynamite, it is National Scissoring Day!” Caster says bring your shirts, bring your signs, bring your big scissors, because they’ll do the chant all night long! Y’know why? Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And there’s more! This Friday night, your #ForeverChamps have an open contract to defend these titles!
And in walks Keith Lee. He applauds them. He wants to congratulate them properly, but as you can see, Swerve is not here this week. He is “exceptionally disgruntled.” Keith has been watching Swerve’s back, and he understands why Swerve is upset. Billy Gunn, you physically got involved and cost the Limitless House their titles. “You boys got carried. Good luck.” Keith heads out but Billy tells him to tell Swerve, “I’ve got two words for him: Scissor me~!” The Acclaimed is having a good time now, but will things turn around in a flash with that open challenge put out?
Backstage interview with the Andrade Family Office.
Or rather, Tony Schiavone is standing in the middle of an argument as The Butcher & The Blade yell at Private Party, and Private Party yells back, with Andrade El Idolo upset at them all. He has them all stop shouting! It’s enough! Listen here: Andrade is your boss, Private Party! Remember that! But Marq Quen says Private Party isn’t mad at Andrade, they’re mad at Butcher & Blade! The shouting starts again but Andrade has them all stop. Jose, you tell them. The Assistant explains that Private Party are the ones upsetting Andrade, Butcher & Blade. They may not like it, but Andrade is still their boss. So either shape up, or ship out!
The others leave, and Schiavone talks with Private Party alone. He usually doesn’t take sides in this, but… Oh, Matt Hardy walks in. Hardy tells Isiah & Marq that he’s sorry they’ve ended up in this situation. But what happened last week in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal felt right! They’re connected! They always have been. Andrade is way worse for them than Big Money Matt ever was. So they should quit, get out of the deal, and Hardy will be waiting. And this time, he promises them both that they’ll do it right. Will Private Party terminate their deal with the AFO to get the #HardyParty started right?
BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!
With that open contract out on the tag titles, it seems the AFO jumped on it with not just one but TWO teams! Private Party AND The Butcher & The Blade are challenging The Acclaimed in a TRIPLE THREAT! Will Caster & Bowens survive the biggest first defense possible?

Isom run sin and forearm smashes in the corner! Isom whips corner to corner but Starks goes up and over. Things speed up, Starks barrels through Isom’s shoulder tackle to then SPEAR him down! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Isom up, for ROSHAMBEAUX! Cover, Starks wins!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall
That was easy work for Starks, and he is absolutely back in the swing of things! Is this the start of a new chapter in the Book of Starks?
AEW looks closer at the drama filled feud of Jungle Boy, Christian Cage & Luchasaurus.
AEW shares footage from after Rampage: Grand Slam. Jack Perry was obviously pissed that after one of the hardest fought matches in his career, and one of the biggest victories in his entire life, Captain Charisma and his personal kaiju attacked. One of JB’s proudest achievements, he gets screwed over again by the two people he used to care about the most in AEW. But they can do whatever they want, he will get them both. Where JB used to hang their AEW World Tag titles on the wall, he will hang both their heads! Will Jungle Boy hunt down the wrestling dinosaur and his new master?
ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Bandido!
The Wizard, Le Champion, the Lionheart, is very proud of himself for becoming an EIGHT-TIME World Champion in his career. But because he is (supposedly) the most honorable man in AEW, he is willing to be a fighting champion. Will #THEOCHO barely last seven days? Or will The Most Wanted, one of the greatest luchadors in the world today, still be a former ROH World Champion?
Bobby Cruise makes the introductions, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly the best ROH champion ever!
Fans rally for Bandido at the bell, and Jericho offers the handshake.

October 12th, in Toronto, Canada, Jericho dares Bryan to fight him for the ROH World Championship! Jericho will destroy every ROH champion, commentator, referee and announcer! What?
LOW BLOW to Bobby Cruise!! AND A JUDAS EFFECT!! Jericho’s reign of terror over ROH begins tonight, but will the American Dragon be able to end it in two weeks?
A great Dynamite to keep things going from last week’s awesome Grand Slam events, as well as set up the anniversary and following events. We got a great opening segment from the JAS, and those purple suits honestly looked really good. Poor Luigi Primo, though. I don’t know if the bucket hat is supposed to mean something, but it does work as a disappointing gift for such a big night. Garcia of course pushes forward towards defecting from the JAS, and Bryan joining in was a good touch. Great match from Bryan VS Menard tonight, and Bryan & Garcia VS Jericho & Sammy is going to be awesome, and it will factor in greatly to the tiebreaker of Bryan VS Jericho.
Jericho VS Bandido was an amazing main event, but I had a feeling Jericho would win. Jericho wants to take on every former ROH World Champion but sets up the tiebreaker, I have a feeling he’s doomed his reign to only last until October 12th. At the same time, there could be any number of “sports entertainment” overbooking shenanigans going on that help Jericho retain. Jericho stating his mission, I would love to see him continue on to then face all those former world champions, such as Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Jay Lethal. Lethal is going to have a great match with Darby, but I feel like Darby is going to win that since it was promised to be truly 1v1.
Great stuff from the rest of the Blackpool Combat Club, such as Yuta confronting MJF and scaring him off to Moxley VS Juice in a great match. I had a feeling Moxley would win so that he can focus on Hangman Page in Cincinnati next. MJF will find a way past Yuta next week, and then he’ll be lurking in Cincinnati, that has to be the cash-in spot. Very good promo from JB to further the story with Christian Cage & Luchasaurus. JB will probably be the one to attack next as retaliation. JB VS Luchasaurus can happen for Full Gear, and Christian’s arm needing time to heal, there’s a chance this story goes all the way to the holidays in December.
Great promo from The Acclaimed and Keith Lee, and a great promo from AFO and Matt Hardy. That Triple Threat for the tag titles is going to be great, but Acclaimed will retain by using the dysfunctional AFO against itself. Then Hardy will support Private Party against Andrade, we can get a great Six Man Tag out of it. Starks of course wins that squash match, that match almost didn’t need to happen here but hey, Starks is still a fan favorite.
And while it was great to hear from Saraya again, something was just a bit awkward about the full women’s segment. Saraya and Britt got at each other pretty well, but did Saraya really need to make a jab at WWE? Especially after the changing of the guard over there and how things have already turned around for the better? Is Tony Khan gonna be petty about the WWE forever? I did appreciate that Saraya is already poised as a supervisor of the women’s division since she got to make the stipulation of the Lumberjack match. And that match was awesome stuff with some good stories set up, such as that match for Hayter VS Willow on Rampage.
Storm retaining makes sense and WOW that second rope piledriver. With Britt worrying about her nose, I am sure Hayter beats Willow and then Hayter really does get the next turn. Storm VS Hayter will be great, and maybe other Heels get to step up. But again, the one thing we need to start seeing is two women’s matches on Dynamite or this is all lip service like WWE gave us years ago with The Authority pinning the bad ratings and ideas on “Constable Corbin.” Quality like this is a great start, but we still need quantity, too.
My Score: 8.8/10

The #INHUMAN Dante Martin is ready to shine in the Dark! Will he fly high against one half of the Workhorseman as AEW continues in Orlando?
- Fuego Del Sol VS Jay Malachi; Fuego wins.
- Leila Grey VS Tiara James; Grey wins.
- Jeeves Kay w/ The Trustbusters VS Gus De La Vega; Jeeves wins.
- Jora Johl VS Blake Li; Johl wins.
- Anna Jay A.S VS Kelly Madan; Anna wins.
- Ryan Nemeth VS Arjun Singh; Nemeth wins.

- The Renegade Twins VS Mila Moore & Mylo; The Renegade Twins win.

- Dante Martin w/ Matt Sydal VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Dante wins.
Solid line up, and it is great to see Fuego Del Sol back in action. He had that scary situation months ago about the hole in his neck, so he’s clearly made a great recovery. I’m sure he’ll get a great win tonight, but I’m wondering where he’ll go in AEW now that he’s back.
