PLAY BY PLAY

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!

The Best of the World just wants a fight with the Salt of the Earth, but Maxwell Jacob Friedman decided to hide behind another member of Pinnacle. Will the War Dog once again do MJF’s dirty work? Or will Punk remove one more piece on the board to leave MJF exposed?

The bell rings and fans are all fired up for Punk. Wardlow shrugs that off as he circles with Punk. Punk slips out but Wardlow goes out to blocks his path to MJF. Punk goes back to the ring, MJF tells fans to shut up, and Wardlow box jumps to the apron. Wardlow shows off his dancing pecs then ties up with Punk. Wardlow shoves Punk to the corner and MJF laughs it up. Punk shrugs it off, ties up with Wardlow and headlocks. Wardlow endures the grind, fans rally up and powers up to power out. Punk rebounds but Wardlow runs him over! Wardlow waits on Punk as he gets up and stretches. Punk and Wardlow tie up, and Wardlow powers Punk back to a corner.

Fans are rallying for Punk and he dodges a haymaker to fire off on Wardlow! But Wardlow ROCKS Punk, CLUBS him down, then stomps Punk on the back. Wardlow drags Punk up to RAM him in the corner. Wardlow pushes Punk down as the ref counts, and Wardlow circles him like a shark. Punk goes to a corner, Wardlow stomps him, and then ROCKS him with a haymaker. Wardlow whips corner to corner, runs in but Punk dodges. Wardlow stops himself but Punk KICKS the leg! Punk fireman’s carries, Wardlow slips off! Wardlow kicks low, reels Punk in, but Punk drops and bails out. Punk catches himself while AEW goes picture in picture.

Punk nods, respecting Wardlow’s size and strength. Punk goes back into the ring, Wardlow says it was that close. The two of them tie up, Punk wrenches an arm to a hammerlock, but Wardlow elbows free. Wardlow CLUBS Punk, stalks him to the corner, then RAMS into his back! Wardlow digs his shoulder in, lets off as the ref counts, then turns Punk around to RAM him in the stomach. Wardlow EuroUppers, then paces. Punk kicks back, goes after a leg, but Wardlow blocks a kick to throw Punk into the corner! Wardlow whips corner to corner, Punk tumbles up and out and to the floor! Wardlow shouts about his dominance and MJF is there to smugly smirk at Punk.

Punk drags himself back onto the apron, Wardlow heads over but Punk shoulders into him. Punk shoulders him again, then slingshots, but Wardlow catches him! And RAMS him into a corner! Wardlow stomps away on Punk, backs off as the ref counts, and then he storms back up to drag Punk up. Wardlow whips Punk corner to corner hard and Punk bounces off buckles! Wardlow soaks up the heat while fans rally up for Punk. Wardlow stands Punk up, whips him corner to corner again, then runs in, into a BOOT! Punk goes up, reels Wardlow in, but Wardlow TOSSES Punk off the tornado DDT!

Wardlow drags Punk up, reels Punk in, and MJF is sure happy to see this. But Punk slips out of the bomb to ROUNDHOUSE! Wardlow just gets mad! Punk kicks low, front kicks hard, then LARIATS! But Wardlow stays up! Punk runs, LARIAT, but Wardlow is still up! Punk hits another LARIAT, Wardlow just wobbles. Punk dodges Wardlow’s clothesline to fire off clubbing shots, then he hurries to a corner! Springboard FLYING LARIAT! Down goes Wardlow and fans fire up! MJF is getting annoyed as Punk goes to a corner. Punk runs corner to corner at Wardlow, SHINING WIZARD! And he flips off MJF!

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 riles up the crowd and Wardlow drags Punk back up. Wardlow reels him in for a third POWERBOMB! And rolls him through for a FOURTH! And then again, for a FIFTH!! One foot cover, but MJF wants Wardlow to wait?! MJF wants even more. MJF wants at least two more bombs, but fans boo for MJF trying to tell Wardlow what to do. Wardlow sighs, drags Punk up, reels him back in, SIXTH POWERBOMB!

MJF still wants lucky number seven! So Wardlow drags Punk back up, gets him back up, and there’s POWERBOMB NUMBER SEVEN! MJF taunts the fans, “I can’t hear you! What happened to your CM Punk chants?” Punk manages to crawl tot he apron, and Wardlow goes outside. MJF tells Wardlow to put him through the table! MJF says Wardlow has a job to do, so do it! Wardlow drags Punk over, reels him in, and gets Punk up for an EIGHTH POWERBOMB, through the table!! Fans boo and MJF soaks it all up. The ref starts a ring count, the medic asks if Punk even wants to continue, and somehow, Punk is crawling!

Punk reaches out at 6 of 10, MJF wants Punk to quit, and the fans are thunderous for “CM PUNK! CM PUNK!” Punk is up at 9 and in at 9.5!! MJF is furious, Wardlow gives him a look, and MJF says this isn’t ending in a pin. Just powerbomb Punk again! “What do I pay you for?!” Wardlow sighs, drags Punk up but Punk’s even more of a rag doll than he was before! But then Punk springs to life for a cradle! PUNK WINS?!?!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

And MJF is fuming! Punk stays alive and stays undefeated! 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! And then runs, to CROSSBODY Hobbs and himself out of the ring! Dante fires off forearms, Hobbs shoves him back into the ring. Hobbs gets up, Dante dropkicks him back down! Dante goes to the apron to LEAP, but into Hobbs’ arms! SPINEBUSTER to the floor! Hobbs looms over Dante as the ring count starts. Hobbs drags Dante up, TOSSES him into the ring this time, and Starks is loving what he is seeing as Hobbs stomps Dante down.

Hobbs hauls Dante up, suplexes and then SLAMS Dante down. Hobbs dares Dante to get up, then drags him up for another suplex and SLAM! Hobbs sneers then grins as he looms over Dante. Hobbs digs his hands into Dante’s head and digs Dante’s head into the mat. Hobbs lets off, Dante goes to a corner and he throws body shots back. Dante fights up, runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him!

Dante is still in this and Team Taz argues with the ref. Hobbs drags Dante up, whips him to the corner hard, then hauls Dante up. “What’re you gonna do to me? Huh? HUH?!” Hobbs throws EuroUppers, whips Dante corner to corner, and Dante tumbles up and out to hit the floor! Starks gets his shots in while the ref is busy with Hobbs! Starks keeps going until AEW goes picture in picture.

Starks plays innocent while Dante writhes. Starks seems to tell Dante this is his fault, but Dante drags himself up to the ring. Hobbs grins as Dante gets on the apron, and he KNEES him down! Starks gets more cheap shots in! Starks gets away it it again, Hobbs waits on the ring count, but Dante drags himself up. The ref keeps Hobbs back, and that allows Starks to get one more shot in!

Fans fire up with Dante, Starks pleads with Hobbs to get back up and finish this! Hobbs is up, goes through the ropes, Dante BOOTS him down! Dante hurries as Hobbs gets up, but Hobbs CLOBBERS Dante again! Both men are down and fans fire up!

Dante crawls his way to the apron as the standing count climbs. Starks lurks that way but the ref spots him. Here comes JAY LETHAL! Lethal trips Starks, Dante springboards for the NOSEDIVE! Cover, Dante wins!!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall

Lethal gets Dante outta there! Taz protests but Lethal evened the numbers! Will Dante have allies to help him fight Team Taz?

 

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!

Hardy keeps Penta down with a chinlock and grinds him into the mat. Penta endures, even as Hardy pushes up to drop down. Penta fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. Penta runs, but into a back elbow! Hardy drops a leg, covers, TWO! Hardy drags Penta up, and bumps him off buckles! Again and again, all three levels! Hardy throws up the V1 as AEW returns to single picture. Hardy whips, Penta stops himself to KICK back, then he ducks and dodges to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Hardy gets up, into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Penta keeps his cool while Hardy survives.

Fans rally up, both men rise, and Penta reels Hardy in. “CERO! MIEDO!” But Hardy fights the package to kick and facelock! Penta fights the Twist so Hardy hits a DDT! Cover, TWO! Hardy ROCKS Penta in the corner with a haymaker, puts him up top and fires off more haymakers, then climbs up to join him. Penta fights back with body shots, slips under and SUPERKICKS the leg out! Hardy falls and gets caught in the Tree of Woe, and Penta goes up top! WOE STOMPS! Penta drags Hardy to the cover, TWO!! Hardy survives again and Private Party is greatly relieved. Fans rally up as Hardy goes to the apron.

Penta goes out to join Hardy, CHOPS him, but Hardy CHOPS back! Penta CHOPS, Hardy CHOPS, they go back and forth with CHOP after CHOP! Penta kicks low, reels Hardy in, and he tucks the arms! Hardy fights free, throws another haymaker, but Penta gives it back! Now they brawl with big shots, Hardy catches Penta for an APRON SIDE EFFECT! Hardy puts Penta in, covers, TWO!! Penta survives now but Hardy just says, “DELETE! DELETE!” Kick and TWIST- NO! Penta shoves free and ENZIGURIS Hardy in the corner! Penta puts Hardy up top, climbs up after him, but Hardy throws back elbows! Penta falls, Hardy adjusts and fans fire up! MOONSAULT FLOPS!

Penta aims, Hardy stands, SUPERKICK, and Penta tucks Hardy in! “CERO! MIEDO!” FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta wins!

Winner: Penta El Zero M, by pinfall

Hardy had hometown advantage but it wasn’t enough! Alex gets in the ring with Penta to call out Malakai Black! “Malakai! I’m going to show you something about respect.” Because Penta has CERO- Oh no! The lights go out! And when they come back up, Malakai is in the ring! And he BOOTS Alex! He and Penta brawl, Malakai throws knees, but Penta SUPERKICKS! ROUNDHOUSE from Malakai! Malakai tears at the mask!! But here comes Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr.! The Varsity Blonds and Penta beat up Malakai, but Julia Hart is telling them to stop? Why?! Malakai laughs as he sits up, and his usually blue eye is now red…!

Malakai points at the Blonds and Penta, and then the lights go out again! When the lights come back up, it’s BRODY KING!! And he BOOTS BPJ, CLOBBERS Griff and CHOPS Penta down! King then THROWS Griff into BPJ, and CLOBBERS Penta! King runs corner to corner to CANNONBALL BPJ! Malakai rises and fans are going nuts! They get Griff up, suplex TOSS to a POWERSLAM! The House of Black has finally started showing itself! Will they soon consume AEW from the inside?

 

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 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.

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?


My Thoughts:

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

AEW honors and remembers Jay Briscoe.

Jay Briscoe himself once said, “Pro-wrestling’s in our soul. This is what we were created to do, man.” ROH is how he feeds his family, it is part of his life. And his family had his back. Jay & Mark are ROH legends, but even more than all the titles they held, Jay held family above all else. There isn’t a person in ROH or AEW who doesn’t respect, love and miss Jay Briscoe. #ThankYouJay.

 

AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Buddy Matthews w/ Julia Hart!

The Relentless One continues to be a fighting champion, and he wants to settle things with the House of Black. Darby beat Malakai, he beat Brody, but will he pull off the sweep in taking on the Aussie Juggernaut? Or will this title be the first gold for the House of Black?

AEW is picture in picture as Buddy finishes his entrance, but returns to single picture for Darby’s. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see just how relentless Darby truly is!

The fans rally up for Darby at the bell. Buddy takes off his mask to reveal he has skull face paint to copy Darby. They circle, but then Julia gets on the apron.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

And with that, Darby checks off the last member of the House of Black! Tony Schiavone is with the Relentless One in the ring, and he says it is quite the run Darby is on. He is on a great win streak, including the Trios win alongside The Great Muta in Muta’s last Pro-Wrestling NOAH match. And all the consecutive title defenses, from Mike Bennett to Juice Robinson to Kushida, and now Buddy Matthews. Four in a row, all stemming from Darby’s amazing in against Samoa Joe in Seattle. But speaking of Joe, he’s on the tron! “Darby~! Little dead boy, little dead boy, what ever have you done?

“It was said that in the kingdoms of old, crimes of theft were punished by having your hand cut off.” But Joe tells Darby that in the Kingdom of the Joe, the One True King of Television, he will take everything from Darby. Darby’s gold, what he STOLE from Joe, feels comfortable and right. But know this: Joe is coming to take back what’s his. The King will not be usurped by a man like Darby! And Darby will learn that winning that TNT title was the greatest mistake of his career. “The King has spoken.” The ROH World Television Champion wants what Darby has, but when and where will they face off again?

 

Adam Cole speaks.

“The past six months, my entire recovery process, it was very much one step forward and two steps back. But today, today is a giant step forward. No one has any idea how much I missed being here. Seeing the crew, hearing the roar of the fans, just being in this ring for the first time in a very, very long time, it feels good. And it’s showing me that all this hard work, all this determination, it is paying off. I know I’m not exactly where I’d like to be yet, but every single day, I am working towards getting back and becoming a brand new Adam Cole.

“Tonight, I’m going to be able to rest easy, knowing that I got the chance to step into this AEW ring. Tonight, I’m gonna sleep easy knowing that there’s a roster full of some of the best pro-wresters on the planet that I’m gonna have the chance to tangle with. I don’t know exactly when that day is yet, but I promise you, that day is coming soon.” Adam Cole looks to the AEW Revolution sign in the arena. Can Cole make March 5th undisputed?

 

Is that Jeff Hardy’s music?!

It is! But wait, Matt Hardy and Ethan Page walk out. Ethan has them cut the music. He and Stokely Hathaway are upset that they played the wrong music. But don’t boo, Ethan and Matt are gonna look great! Ethan even gave Hardy back the Twist of Fate! But we all agreed as a team, Ethan is the star of the show! Right, Isiah? Stokely adds, “Ain’t that right, Isiah?” Isiah Kassidy says, “Hell nah!” What did he say!? “I said… Hell. Nah!” Stokely unbuttons Kassidy’s jacket to reveal the Ethan Page shirt. Why’s he wearing that, then? Stokely tells Kassidy to put the chain on him. Oh, wait, he’ll put it in a way Kassidy can understand: “Put my chain on, dead ass.”

Ethan says while that’s happening, play the RIGHT music! Ethan’s theme plays, All Ego and Hardy head to the ring. Will The Firm DELETE Jack Perry & the FTW Champion? Or will they regret wanting them to #SendJungleHook?

All Ego just lost because of that ego! These cold-hearted, handsome devils are undefeated at 2-0, will they think of making this a regular thing?

 

Billy Gunn, The Acclaimed & The Gunn Sons are in family therapy.

The AEW therapist asks who would like to start, and Billy says he should, as he called for this. He will address the biggest issue: When did Austin & Colten “become so entitled, and just spoiled brats?” Austin says, “I’m sorry if I forget. When did you have anything to do with how we were raised? Our entire childhood, you were on the road 320 days out of the year.” Colten says that the “dream of having the tag titles with them (The Acclaimed) was supposed to be with us, and you (Billy) ditched us.” Billy’s sons always come second to him, so when are they going to be first? Never, it seems.

Anthony Bowens speaks up. “I think you two are the biggest pieces of sh*t I have ever met in my entire life. And I mean that.” But Austin & Colten do have the opportunity to mend that. They had all the time in the world to make up for that time they missed with their dad, and the second Billy showed The Acclaimed even a little bit of attention, they couldn’t control their jealousy and put hands on him. That’s where The Acclaimed stepped in. That’s why Billy adopted The Acclaimed. Max Caster agrees, and that is why he has no sympathy for Austin & Colten. “You think you can be The Acclaimed, you want to be the champions, but you can’t do what we do.”

Gunn Club, Billy, Austin & Colten all together, they would’ve been fine, but they wouldn’t have been what this is now. They wouldn’t have the top merchandise. That’s funny coming from Caster. Who helped Caster when Bowens was in a wheelchair? The Gunns. And yet in Caster’s raps, he had the nerve to call them “Ass Boys.” They were all supposed to be friends. And then when Bowens finally got out of the wheelchair, he hits Austin in the head with a crutch! And yet, Austin & Colten are the bad guys? That’s somehow their fault? Bowens says not to rewrite history, but they start arguing. Billy and the therapist calm this all down.

Billy gets both points, he really does. But Austin & Colten took the easy way out! What happened to them? Colten says their faults as sons are Billy’s failures as a father. Billy takes a breath. This has to get resolved, this is getting to be too much, and Billy can’t handle it. What is it the Gunns want? What would make them happy? The AEW World Tag Team Championships. Austin & Colten leave, and reconciliation seems impossible. Is fighting the only thing left that can end this?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page.

Renee Paquette again interviews The Cowboy, and says that after talking last week, something stuck with her. She asked Hangman what was next for him, and he gave a rather vague response. She wants to know if he’ll be more specific this week about what he wants to accomplish. Hangman says that sometimes, Renee asks questions “that we really don’t want to answer.” And without getting too into his personal life and keeping it to wrestling, the more Hangman looks forward, he can’t help but see back. Back to Ohio, where this all started with him and Jon Moxley. And Hangman sees now that he and Moxley are 1-1.

And Hangman knows now that next week, AEW will be in Dayton, Ohio. So the next thing Hangman would like to try and do would be the impossible: knockout Jon Moxley in Ohio. But then Wheeler Yuta walks in to tell Hangman that he has one thing right: it IS impossible for Hangman to knockout Moxley in Ohio. But while Moxley isn’t cleared to compete tonight, Moxley will be ready for next week, and he accepts the challenge. Well, good. But speaking of challenges, Hangman sure is running his mouth a lot about a guy who isn’t cleared, so how about he face YUTA on Rampage?

Hangman says sure, but he has a question for Yuta: “Why do you think what happened to Jon isn’t gonna happen to you, too?” Hangman tells the Decoder he’ll see him Friday, will the Cowboy make an example out of him before going for the tiebreaker with Moxley?

Or can Bryan still make it through and be the #1 contender?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Renee is with Bryan in the trainer’s room to get a medical update. Doc Sampson says Bryan’s got a partially subluxation to the shoulder joint, AKA it’s not good. So what does that mean for the immediate future? In Sampson’s opinion- Bryan says he doesn’t care what Sampson thinks! Can he wrestle or not? Sampson hesitates, so Bryan shouts, “CAN I WRESTLE OR CAN I NOT WRESTLE!?” Sampson says at this point, no! But Bryan says, “Yes I can!” Sampson says it’s a partial sub-whatever, Bryan doesn’t care if it’s dislocated! Bryan wrestled SIXTY GADDAMN MINUTES with a separated shoulder!! “Ain’t nobody stopping me from wrestling!”

Bryan tells “Max” that while he claims there’s some monster, Bryan just sees fear! MJF is afraid of getting hurt, of being exposed, and that Bryan will take the one thing MJF cares most about in this world in the AEW World Championship! But when Bryan does, he won’t just expose MJF. Bryan will show that what’s really behind MJF’s mask is a fraud. And then, the person who will be and should be AEW World Champion is Bryan Danielson! Bryan tells Sampson that he’s not stopping Bryan from wrestling ever again. Bryan heads out, but is this a move that plays right into MJF’s hands?

 

Toni Storm VS Ruby Soho!

As they say, “Card subject to change.” What was meant to be a Triple Threat cannot be as Britt Baker is out with injury. But that’s more than okay with these two!

Again, injured or not, Britt had an effect on this match! The homegrown star tipped the scales in Soho’s favor, have the battle lines been drawn?

 

MJF speaks.

“My apologies that I’m speaking to you people in a dimly lit locker room, but unfortunately, some people, ah, they just can’t seem to control their emotions around here. Granted, I’m not the first Jew that had to hide from a man with blue eyes, now am I? Takeshita! Yeah, that’s right, big man, I know how to pronounce your name. Granted, I still think ‘Take-a-shit-a’ is freakin’ hilarious. But hey, I can’t force the fans to have taste. But I have taste, Takeshita. I think you’re really talented, man. Inside that squared circle, you are very, very talented. But unfortunately, up top, you’re a little bit smooth-brain. You think it’s a good idea to dance with the devil, and I am here to tell you, you can’t match my tempo. So stay out of my business, or there will be consequences.

“Speaking of, Bryan Danielson! The American Dragon! How’s that wing of yours doing, bud? Bet it’s hanging on by a thread. But no, you’re gonna keep on going, right? You’re gonna keep on marching towards March 5th, AEW Revolution, that One Hour Ironman Match. Because you’re so brave, you’re a valiant warrior, you’re a hero! At least, that’s what the fans think of you, but I know better. See, I know you’re obsessed. Just like I’m obsessed with Triple B, the AEW World Championship. See, this belt gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Because this belt stands for the simple fact that all my blood, sweat, hard work, tears, and my sins, they were all worth it.

“This belt turns my catchphrase into a fact! This belt does make me better than you, and you know it. This belt is the only thing in my life that makes me feel whole. And you wanna take that away from me, Bryan? Why? Don’t you have enough, man? Loving family, adoring fanbase, first ballot Hall of Fame career, but no. You need to take away from Max! I know the real reason why, Bryan. It’s because just like me, you’ve got a hole in your soul and you’re trying to fill it. But I’m not the one to get that job done, Bryan. Nah, not by a long shot. Bad things happen to people that mess with MJF in this company.

“Matter of fact, I remember knocking out some big British guy. Kinda looked like Ellen DeGeneres on meth. The name’s on the tip of my tongue. Ah, it’s not important. What is important is this: Tonight was just the tip of the iceberg, and if you keep trying to take away the one thing in this world that brings me happiness, you’re gonna find out that tonight was only physical pain, and physical pain is fleeting. You don’t want me to get to the mental pain, Bryan. Because that really leaves a scar.

“Now this week, Tony Khan has issued out an open contract to any man to fight you on next week’s Dynamite. So I made a phone call to a man who loves inflicting pain. A man who gets off on scientifically dismantling men limb from limb. It’s been a fun ride, Dragon. But I’m afraid it’s over. Roll the clip.” MJF’s next mercenary: TIMOTHY THATCHER!! He just won in brutal fashion in Pro-Wrestling Noah, and he really does enjoy hurting his opponents! Will Thatcher do the dirty work of MJF and tear that subluxated arm clean off?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

On top of Hangman VS Yuta, and on top of “Powerhouse” Hobbs being back in action, we will see an AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator match! Jamie Hayter takes on THE Emi Sakura!

Jamie Hayter speaks.

“In my opinion, Emi Sakura is a professional wrestling legend. The amount of times she’s broken her back for this business, bled for this business. She got her bloody head shaved for this business! She’s the kind of woman I need to be in the ring with, and I need to beat her.” Hayter knows it’s been awhile since she and Emi met in the ring, but she’s different now. And when they face off on Rampage, even the legend will understand #HayterHitsHard.

Lethal drags Mark up and to the ring but fans rally. Mark karate chops Lethal again and again! But Lethal RAMS him into railing! Mark flops to the timekeeper’s table, Lethal CLUBS him down. Lethal lines up a shot, and he puts Mark on the table. Lethal goes to the corner and climbs up!? Fans are already freaking out, but Mark gets in the ring! Lethal hops down but Mark DECKS him! Mark builds speed to WRECK Lethal with a dropkick! Fans fire up with Mark as he is on the apron., and he RUNNING BLOCKBUSTERS to the floor! Fans are thunderous as Mark ROCKS Lethal and puts him on the table!

Mark goes to the corner and he climbs up top! Fans are thunderous for the SUPER FROGGY-BOW through the table!!! Fans lose their minds and give a standing ovation for that one! Mark throws things aside, including a chair, and the ref has to get that chair out of the ring. Mark puts Lethal in the ring, “This is Awesome!” as Mark covers, TWO!?!? Lethal is still in this and Mark can’t believe it! Mark drags Lethal up, underhooks, but Lethal NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Mark still has the arms hooked! But Lethal escapes by slipping out underneath! Lethal handsprings, but Mark follows! LARIAT!!

Mark drags Lethal up, he underhooks the arms, but Lethal wrenches out, into another LARIAT! Mark finally has the underhooks, JAY DRILLER!!! Cover, Mark wins!!

Winner: Mark Briscoe, by pinfall

The standing ovation is back, Mark wins this one for his brother! On what would’ve been Jay’s 39th birthday, we all celebrate the life, career, passion, dedication and love of Jay Briscoe. The combined AEW and ROH roster is on stage to join the standing ovation as Lethal and Mark hug it out. Lethal then goes up the ramp, he hugs it out with Sonjay Dutt, and Mark celebrates with the fans. Mark then hugs it out with Christopher Daniels, Tony Khan, and even Rush and BJ Whitmer. #ThankYouJayBriscoe, we will always remember you.


My Thoughts:

A great episode, but made even better by Warner Brothers Discovery letting off on their anti-Briscoe stance in the wake of Jay’s passing. Mark VS Lethal was such a great match, especially in terms of honoring Jay. There will still be a bigger, more ROH based tribute show via Honor Club, but I almost feel like nothing else could top what we got. We also got a good promo from Adam Cole to further hype his return, and I think Revolution is a good target to aim for. Another month is a good amount of time to prepare, but he’d have to find an opponent to face pretty quickly to make sure they can put it on the card and advertise it.

Great opening tag match, and of course the JAS cheat to get the win. The feud between them and Starks-Andretti is far from over, but I think there has to be one last 1v1 of Starks VS Jericho to really settle it. Great TNT title match from Darby VS Buddy, with great overbooking of Sting and Ortiz getting after Malakai and Brody. This very well could be how Ortiz proves to Eddie Kingston that he was never in cahoots with The House of Black, but maybe Eddie just thinks this was a fake-out. Pretty funny swerve with the theme music for Ethan & Hardy VS Jungle Hook. Great match, too, and good booking of the finish. Jungle Hook really could become a full-time team, fans love them both anyway.

And then Darby VS Joe being set up next week, TNT title under No Holds Barred, holy crap that’s going to be awesome. They’re going to go above and beyond, and that could mean either guy wins. But at the same time, it’d be a shame for Darby only holding onto the title for a month just to give Joe another double title run. Darby will surely win, and I would love if Hobbs showed up after to attack and stake his claim to the title. Darby VS Hobbs could be awesome stuff, and probably set for Revolution to really add to that PPV.

Good “therapy” promo from Acclaimed and Gunn Club. I’m with Daddy Ass, those were good points from both sides, and of course this is about the tag titles. Acclaimed will surely win their tag match next week, only for Gunns to attack them like they did with FTR to get at them. Acclaimed VS Gunns could happen at Revolution, but they’d really have to stretch this out somehow. Good promo from Hangman and I’m surprised we’re getting Hangman VS Moxley Round 3 so soon. And still not Unsanctioned No Holds Barred like I expected. Hangman VS Yuta will be a great match for Rampage, and I would think Hangman will win that.

Great stuff from Bryan VS Brian, and of course we get both Bryan winning but his arm being viciously attacked. Konosuke making the save was great, though he could’ve gotten out there a bit sooner. Good promo from MJF to call both Konosuke and Bryan out, and I would love to see Konosuke VS Cage at some point. Bryan had a great promo to tell off Doc Sampson and MJF, and Bryan will definitely find a way to win his next two matches. Bryan winning with one arm, then wrestling against MJF for an hour with one arm, that’s gonna be some powerful stuff. But somehow, someway, MJF is surely winning at Revolution.

Good promo from Hayter to call out Emi Sakura, and that will be a real good match for Rampage. And great stuff from Soho VS Storm in place of the Triple Threat we were supposed to get. Britt Baker’s injury is being kept under wraps, but it clearly wasn’t too serious since she was able to show up and distract Storm. Tony Khan has been quoted as saying the Triple Threat will happen when Britt is 100%, and maybe it’ll name a #1 contender to Hayter’s title for Revolution. At the same time, Shida has to get in on this story after finding herself stuck between Saraya & Storm with their “We’re better cuz we got started before AEW” and the fact AEW got her international success.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (1/24/23)

Britt Baker gets Dark!

Published

on

Universal Studios belongs to Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.

Ahead of a Triple Threat on Wednesday Night Dynamite, Britt Baker returns to AEW Dark for a Tuesday tune-up! Will The Doctor be ready for Toni Storm and Ruby Soho?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Britt Baker VS Billie Starkz; Baker wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS Baliyan Akki, Marcus Kross & Vary Morales; The Dark Order wins.
  • Tony Deppen VS Serpentico w/ Luther; Serpentico wins.
  • Matt Sydal VS Cezar Bononi w/ Peter Avalon; Sydal wins.
  • Harley Cameron VS Brittany J; Cameron wins.
  • Madison Rayne VS Kaci Lennox; Rayne wins.
  • Action Andretti VS Bronson w/ The Iron Savages; Action win.
  • Anthony Henry VS Mascara Dorada; Dorada wins.

QUICK NOTES

A good line-up, and good to see Matt Sydal back in action. That should be a good return win for him against big bad Bononi. Harley Cameron is a bit of a surprise. Sure, she showed up in AEW sometime last year, but she performed in a musical trio alongside Scarlett Bordeaux and Shotzi Blackheart to cover I Put A Spell On You for WWE around Halloween time. WWE could’ve/should’ve scooped her up then but hey, at least she’s somewhere. Anthony Henry VS Mascara Dorada looks to be a great match-up that could go either way. And of course, Britt will get a win here to be ready for Dynamite on Wednesday.
