PLAY BY PLAY

Trent VS Adam Cole!

Best Friends have not let go of what the Panama City Playboy and his posse have done to them week in and week out. Cole has his whole crew with him, but will he need them all to deal with #JustTrent?

Trent’s friends are with him to keep their eyes on Britt Baker, the Young Bucks and reDRagon, and the bell rings. Trent and Cole stare down, fans rally up as the two slowly circle, and Trent avoids the boot! Trent forearms, CHOPS, then forearms again. Trent CHOPS Cole in a corner, Cole hits back! Trent ROCKS Cole, CHOPS him in the corner again, then stalks him to a corner. Cole kicks back, throws forearms, but Trent forearms back. Trent CHOPS again, Cole knees low, and Cole throws another forearm. Cole reels Trent in, but Trent picks Cole up for a back drop! Fans fire up as Trent brings Cole up for more forearms.

Trent fires off at the ropes, again and again and again, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Trent runs in to basement dropkick Cole out! Cole’s crew gathers around him, and they all shout to the ref to do his job. Trent goes out, Britt is there yelling at him, but then Cole rushes in to trip Trent up! All of Cole’s friends laugh at Trent’s pain, but then Best Friends walk over to back them off. Cole puts Trent in, talks some trash, and he drags Trent up to turn him, NECKBREAKER! Trent writhes, fans boo, and Cole drags Trent up to bump Trent off buckles. Cole wrenches an arm, and he whips corner to corner hard!

Trent falls after hitting buckles, but Cole drags him back up. Cole turns Trent, HANGING NECKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Trent toughs it out but Cole keeps his cool. Colle looms over Trent, taunts him, but Trent throws body shots. Trent ROCKS Cole, Cole BOOTS Trent down! Trent goes to the apron and then the floor. Cole has his guys stay back so he can go to the apron. Cole aims, PANAMA- BACK DROP from Trent! Britt winces as her boy crawls to railing. Trent run sin, but Cole moves and Trent RAMS himself into the railing! Fans go nuts as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cole gets a kiss from Britt, then he goes after Trent. Cole drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then stalks up behind him. Trent sits up, Cole runs in, to BOOT Trent back down! “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” Cole then rains down rights, lets off to sit Trent up, and he clamps on a chinlock. Cole grinds Trent into the mat, but Trent endures. Trent fights his way back up, throws body shots, and Rampage returns to single picture as Trent ROCKS and CHOPS Cole! Both men stagger, Trent ROCKS and CHOPS Cole again! Trent snarls, he DECKS Cole, then dodges him to waistlock, Cole breaks free but Trent ducks the Pele to DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX!

Cole flounders to a corner and fans fire up for Trent! Trent runs in to back elbow! Then he hits a TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Trent works on his neck as Cole gets himself to a corner. Trent runs in, Cole BOOTS him! Cole goes up, but Trent SLAPS him! Trent CHOPS Cole, climbs up to join him, and then SUPERPLEXES! Trent crawls to a cover, TWO!! Trent winces, his neck bothering him, but he gets up to his feet. Fans rally up, Trent fireman’s carries but Cole fights free. Trent powers up to fireman’s carry again, but Cole slips off to hit a BACKSTABBER! Trent tries to get feeling in his arms, but Cole tunes up the band.

Trent slowly rises, Cole gets impatient, but Trent gets him for a HALF ‘N’ HALF! Trent drags Cole back up, but Cole suplexes, GHOSTBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!?! Trent survives and fans are fired up! Trent crawls to the apron, Cole goes out after him. Cole fireman’s carries, Trent slips off! Trent reels Cole in, APRON PILEDRIVER! Trent gets Cole back in, grits his teeth and gets Cole back up! Alabama lift, but Cole fight sit to hit a DESTROYER!! Cover, TWO?!?! Trent survives again and no one can believe it! Cole goes up the corner again, leaps, but into a SAIDO! Cole staggers, Trent LARIATS him inside out! Fans are thunderous as Trent rises again!

Trent runs at Cole, but into a SUPERKICK! BLINDSIDE SUPERKICK for good measure! Cole then goes back up, Trent rises, PANAMA- NO! Trent tucks him in, STRONG ZERO!! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Cole survives by mere inches! Nick Jackson points it out and the ref shouts that he sees it! Chuck Taylor yanks Nick off the apron, and a brawl breaks loose! The Bucks are after Chuck, Kyle is after Cassidy, Fish is after Yuta, and of course Britt is after Statlander! The ref tries to get them all to stop but Cole LOW BLOWS Trent!! Cole runs, THE BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

Cole’s best friends come through for him again as he gets one over on Trent! But will Freshly Squeezed & the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien get revenge on Cole and Britt?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Mercedes Martinez.

La Mera Mera calls out Mercedes, saying she came to AEW to show what? That she’s a cheater? She cost Rosa her match with Jade Cargill. But Mercedes says the next time these two see each other, it’ll be a war! The OG Badass is here in AEW. But Rosa says next time, it’ll be in the ring. Mercedes says Rosa will respect and forever remember her name! When and where will these two meet to bring the mayhem?

 

Shawn Spears w/ Wardlow VS Andrew Everett!

The Chair Man is preparing to be Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s pawn- er, substitute- er, well, he’s preparing to face CM Punk on MJF’s behalf. Will he be slay the Sky-Walker from Carolina to prove he’s ready?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they tie up. Spears gets around, spins Everett around and snapmares, then cartwheels to show ten. Everett gets mad, runs in, but Spears sends him to the corner, Everett goes up to cartwheel on the ropes! Spears runs in, but into a shoulder! Everett slingshots, into a fireman’s carry! C4!! Spears slowly covers, shaking his head, Spears wins!

Winner: Shawn Spears, by pinfall

Wardlow gets in the ring, bringing Spears his chair. Spears then gets himself a mic to say, “Is he really the Best in the World?” What about Spears? Spears traveled the same roads, shed blood, and gave everything to this. Spears was the guy who isn’t supposed to be here. “He’s not marketable, he doesn’t know who he is.” Spears knows who he is, but explaining what he is is much more complex. He’s the guy MJF sends to make sure a message is sent and understood. So Punker, Spears is coming for you. Spears doesn’t know where the lines are until he crosses them. There will be no warning, and no apologies. “I’m the guy you don’t see coming.”

And Spears is the Chair Man for a reason. One swing, and Spears makes sure you remember forever. Fans chant for Wardlow instead. But Spears says Punk isn’t in here with a one0move wonder with only a couple of years’ experience. This is a 20 year veteran and pound for pound one of the sharpest wrestlers in the world today! Punk can’t hang anymore, and Spears will prove it. Seven years off is seven years too long. Spears will expose Punk. In just five days, Punky, “The Chair Man cometh.” Spears is all smiles now, but will CM Punk make sure to wipe it off Spears’ smug face?

 

The Acclaimed debut their newest diss track music video!

Anthony Bowens has face paint on as he says, “I am Darby Allin and this is Stang. Welcome to Rampage.” Caster CLOBBERS Bowens with a 2 by 4.

“Two grown men, and they goin’ through a goth phase. Darby, you were livin’ in your car with a hot plate. I’ll send you right back to it if you not game. Beat you down bad, got you puttin’ on the rock tape. In the ER ’til the next morning. Bet that you’re a virgin with your fake sex story. We should put your promos on a cue card.  Got the crowd feelin’ half dead like you are.” Two grown men and the goin’ through a goth phase, Sting & Darby be staying where the cops stay. The Acclaimed stayin’ where the ops stay.  Illest in the game, they do not play.

Sting talking tough, like there’s nothin’ wrong. The Acclaimed will hit him with a buckle bomb. Why they actin’ so hard like this? The Acclaimed got a big black bat for that small white BEEP! Two grown men, they goin’ through a goth phase. Two Broke Girls still on TV, it does not change. Yeah they like it unironically, of all things. When Darby’s in trouble, he gotta call Stng. The Acclaimed, steady whippin’ that ass. They’ll take out Sting at both knees like he did at The Clash. When they see Acclaimed runnin’ up, they hop in the whip. Darby hits a Coffin Drop, Caster’ll make him do a hospital flip.

Two grown men, and they goin’ through a goth phase. Darby & Sting stayin’ where the cops stay. The Acclaimed, stayin’ where the ops stay. Illest in the game, they do not play! But will any of this get under the skin of the Relentless and the Icon?

 

Six Woman Tag: Kris Statlander, Red Velvet & Leyla Hirsch VS Nyla Rose, Penelope Ford & The Bunny!

All six women in this match have beef, but it’s the dysfunction happening between the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien and LEGIT Leyla that could mean problems here tonight. Will they and The Chef be able to hold it together? Or will they be torn apart by these Vicious Vixens?

The teams sort out, Nyla starts against Statlander, but then Leyla tags herself in. Statlander lets that slide, Nyla shoots in to CLUB away on Leyla’s back. Nyla THROWS Leyla to the ropes, runs in and SPLASHES! Nyla talks trash, then pie faces Statlander. The ref has to keep Statlander back, but that allows Bunny to choke Leyla! Fans boo but Bunny gets away with it.  Nyla whips Leyla, clinches, and BELLY2BELLY suplexes! Cover, TWO! Nyla shoves Leyla, tags in Bunny, and Statlander tags herself in. Statlander and Bunny circle, tie up, and Statlander waistlocks to SLAM Bunny down! Statlander shifts to a facelock but Bunny fights up.

Bunny stomps a foot, wrenches and ROCKS Statlander, but Statlander hits back! Fans rally as they keep throwing shots! Bunny knees low, runs, but Statlander sidesteps to POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Statlander drags Bunny up, tags Velvet, and they double whip to shoulder, and then work together to tilt-o-whirl SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Velvet drags Bunny over, tags Leyla, and they double whip to trip Bunny up, for a STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Leyla wrenches Bunny’s arm, but she hesitates to tag Statlander in, so Bunny get away! Velvet tags in because Nyla is back in! Nyala misses Velvet but she CLOBBERS Leyla and Statlander, then she CLOBBERS Velvet!

AEW goes picture in picture as Nyla looms over Velvet. She deadlifts and TOSSES Velvet with one arm! Tag to Ford, and she stomps away on Velvet. Ford bumps Velvet off buckles, forearms and rolls to run and handspring, back elbow! Ford goes side to side, Bunny tags in, Ford ROCKS Velvet, then sets her up for Bunny’s SLIDING FOREARM! Cover, TWO! Bunny drags Velvet by her arm, and then STOMPS it! Bunny taunts Statlander and Leyla, but the ref keeps them both back. Bunny drags Velvet up but Velvet throws body shots. Bunny CLUBS Velvet down, bumps her off buckles, then Bunny tags Ford in.

Ford throws big forearms on Velvet, then scrapes her face along the ropes! The ref reprimands, Ford puts Velvet on the ropes to CHOKE her! The ref reprimands, Ford lets off, and then she drags Velvet up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Ford is annoyed, but she drags Velvet up to bump her off buckles. Ford fireman’s carries Velvet, carries her around, then pops her up for a GUTBUSTER DROP! Cover, TWO! Ford is annoyed but still in control as AEW goes to break.

Rampage returns and Nyla choke grips Velvet, for a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Velvet survives and Vickie Guerrero is furious! Nyla stomps Velvet, steps on Velvet and then returns, but Velvet avoids the senton! Both women are down, fans rally up, and they both crawl to hot tag Ford and Statlander! Statlander rallies on Ford, BOOTS Bunny, then kicks Ford to whip her into a corner. Statlander EuroUppers, whips corner to corner, then ROCKS Ford with a forearm! Statlander suplexes Ford for the GOURD BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Statlander drags Ford up but Ford claws eyes! Fans rally, Ford handsprings, but Statlander dodges to get around, Gory Especial and backslide, into the SPIDER CRAB!!

But Vickie distracts! Bunny gets in to SUPERKICK! Ford is free, she crawls, hot tag to Bunny! Bunny hurries to get Statlander up, dragon sleeper, but Statlander slips out and gets around, BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Bunny survives and Vickie is happy, but Statlander aims from the corner. Leyla tags herself in, she argues with Statlander, Bunny CLOBBERS them both! Cover, the Vicious Vixens win!!

Winners: Nyla Rose, Penelope Ford & The Bunny, by pinfall

The dysfunction derails the team, and Leyla just glares at Statlander. Is the friendship falling apart at the seams?

 

Dan Lambert & The Men of the Year speak.

Ethan Page starts by “congratulating” Sammy Guevara on becoming interim TNT Champion. “Whatever that means.” Because we all know that Sammy still lost it to Cody Rhodes, who is mysteriously missing from work, when it’s really because he stepped in the ring with Ethan Page and got his ass whooped! Scorpio Sky lets us know it has been 228 days since he was last pinned, and he hasn’t lost a singles match in 310 days. Now Cody is running, Sammy’s ducking, and the only ones getting title shots are guys more equipped to carry Scorpio’s bags than a championship. It doesn’t matter who carries the belt, Scorpio wants the title.

Whenever Sammy and Cody sort this out, their reign won’t last long, because Scorpio is the face of TNT. “Get used to it.” But will the Men of the Year’s Closer really be the one stepping up to the plate against the future undisputed TNT Champion?

 

Ricky Starks has something to say.

He’s on commentary, but he can’t get why people interrupt and put their noses in Team Taz’s business. There are things you just don’t do. You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t piss off Ricky Starks, and you do not put your nose in Team Taz business. Jay Lethal, Starks doesn’t care how you did it where you last were, but that’s not how it flies here. But speaking of, here comes Jay Lethal! “Hold on, hold on.” Lethal heard all that, so he wants to explain something. Lethal knows he’s the “new guy” here, but for two months, he watched what happened between Dante Martin and Team Taz. Lethal is sick to his stomach about it.

And another thing is, ever since Starks became FTW Champion, there isn’t a long list of challengers. That could be because Starks cares less about wrestling and more about what outfit he’ll wear for the day. Or it could be that the FTW Championship isn’t even officially recognized, but means the world to Starks. So for that alone, Lethal wants it. Lethal VS Starks, for the FTW Championship! Now before anyone gets excited, Lethal knows Starks has to run this by Taz. But whatever Daddy tells Starks, just do the opposite. Starks wants after Lethal but referees rush out to stop it! Will Taz greenlight Starks taking on the former ROH World Champion?

 

Mark Henry talks with the main eventers.

He first talks with John Silver and Alex Reynolds, who have Evil Uno backing them. They challenged the champs on Dynamite, but are they ready this soon? Of course they are! Look at Silver’s beef! And look at Reynolds’ gorgeous hair. Reynolds says it was Jurassic Express who accepted the match, so they’re the ones who have to accept they’re going to lose tonight. There will only be one song at the end of the night. Silver & Reynolds bring out kazoos a la E&C, and they start playing. Buzz buzz, JOIN US, buzz buzz, JOIN US. Christian Cage gets it, that’s what he used to do. Glad to see them taking this seriously.

But the thing is, if Captain Charisma can take something as silly as kazoos and make them iconic, imagine what he can do with the talent of Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus, the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions. There are levels to this, and the Dark Order is going to find they’re not on Jurassic Express’. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Numbers 3 & 4 get the 1-2-3? Or will Rampage be all about Tarzan Life?

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Jurassic Express w/ Christian Cage VS Alex Reynolds & John Silver w/ The Dark Order!

Rampage returns as the Dark Order walks out for their entrance. Then the champions and Captain Charisma make their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if JB & Luchasaurus survive their first defense!

JB starts against Reynolds and fans are fired up already. JB and Reynolds tie up, go around, and JB waistlocks. Reynolds pries free, wrenches to a wristlock, but JB steps through to wrench back. Reynolds rolls, wrenches, arm-drags, but JB is right back up. Reynolds handsprings to show off, and the two go again. They tie up, Reynolds waistlocks, JB pries free to knuckle lock and CHOP! JB goes up the corner, rebounds and arm-drags, but Reynolds comes back, into a dropkick! Now JB handsprings to show off! JB tags Luchasaurus in, whips Reynolds, and Luchasaurus CHOPS Reynolds down!

Reynolds throws a forearm but Luchasaurus puts Reynolds in a corner. Luchasaurus fires off hands, runs in and clotheslines! Tag to JB, he climbs while Luchasaurus scoops and SLAMS! KNEE-BOARD SENTON! Cover, TWO! JB drags Reynolds up, whips him to ropes but Reynolds turns him for a backslide! TWO, they stay hooked up and JB spins Reynolds round, Reynolds ducks, Silver tags in! Silver CLOBBERS JB, dropkicks Luchasaurus, and BOOTS JB! Silver drags JB up, whips him to ropes, and he back drops JB! Silver double guns but JB puts him on the apron. JB elbows Silver, triangle jumps but into a GAMANGIRI!

Silver CANNONBALS Luchasaurus, then stares Christian down. Silver flexes, but JB DIVES! Silver blocks to suplex! Reynolds DIVES, TOPE BRAINBUSTER! Silver gets JB up and into the ring as fans fire up! Cover, TWO!

AEW goes picture in picture, Silver keeps cool, and Silver drags JB up. Silver KICKS JB down, but JB drags himself up to CHOP back. Silver DECKS JB, tags Reynolds in, and Reynolds drags JB up to whip into the corner. JB bounces off buckles, Reynolds drags him back up, but JB hits back with body shots! JB forearms, CHOPS and repeat, but Reynolds waistlocks. JB switches, Silver tags in as JB rolls Reynolds, and Silver drags JB off to POWERBOMB him onto Reynolds’ knees! Cover, TWO! JB survives but Silver keeps cool. Silver drags JB up, throws haymakers, then bumps him off buckles.

Silver turns JB around to TOSS him across the ring! Silver flexes, drags JB over, and Reynolds tags in to springboard elbow drop! Cover, TWO! Reynolds tags Silver back in, Silver wraps on a chinlock and grinds JB down. JB endures, fights up, and throws elbows. Silver cranks the hold but JB keeps fighting. Silver KICKS JB down, but JB gets up to CHOP! And CHOP! Silver ROCKS JB with a right, KICKS him back down, then stands on JB in the corner. Silver drags JB up, suplexes, but JB slips out! AEW returns to single picture as JB ducks and hot tags Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus rallies on Silver & Reynolds, BOOT for Reynolds, and then he puts them in opposite corner.

Luchasaurus runs to back elbow Silver, then back elbow Reynolds, then back to Silver! Reynolds dodges but Luchasaurus DOUBLE LARIATS them down! Fans fire up with Luchasaurus, he sees Silver stagger up. Choke grip, but Reynold gets up to save Silver from the slam! Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Reynolds, reverse choke grips, then CHOKE SLAMS Silver onto Reynolds! Cover, TWO!! The Dark Order survives but JB tags in. Luchasaurus scoops Silver but Silver slips out! SUPERKICK for Luchasaurus, Silver spins JB to ROCK him with a forearm! Silver dumps Luchasaurus out, then he tags Reynolds.

The Dark Order focus on JB, Reynolds climbs as Silver Electric Chair Lifts JB. JB slips off to shove Silver into Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX to Silver, JB ROCKS Reynolds! JB goes up, Reynolds fights him, and Silver is back up! Silver goes up after JB but JB resists the Super German! Luchasaurus gets in, he gets Silver up! Silver fights while JB CLUBS Reynolds. Silver fights his way back to the corner! They all link up, TWOWER OF DOOM!! Powerbomb, German Suplex AND Superplex, all at once! Fans are thunderous for this one! A standing count starts but the teams regroup. Silver PENALTY KICKS Luchasaurus! JB SUPERKICKS Silver!

Reynolds pops JB up for a KNEE! Luchasaurus is back up, Reynolds dodges to SUPERKICK! Dark Order SUPERKICK ENZIGURI COMBO! SHOTGUN from Silver! JB gets up, he runs in but Silver dodges! Corner ROUNDHOUSE, ROLLING ELBOW, ENZIGURIU, STUNNER, GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!?!? The Beaver Boy Blitz didn’t finish this off and no one can believe it! “This is Awesome!” but far from over! Christian is worried for his guys, JB BOOTS Reynolds back! JB puts Silver out, but Reynolds shoves him to ropes, COMEBACKER! Silver runs at Luchasaurus but is put on the other side of the corner!

Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Silver, JB runs over to FLYING RANA! Silver falls on Evil Uno! Luchasaurus rolls to SPIKE-RANA Reynolds! JB uses Luchasaurus for the boost, DESTROYER!! Cover, TWO!?! Now Reynolds shocks us all! JB tags Luchasaurus and they get Reynolds up. Scoop, but Reynolds slips off! Silver gets on the apron, Luchasaurus BOOTS him! JB gets Reynolds up, back suplex to a gut wrench, JURASSIC CUTTER! JB DIVES to take out Silver! Luchasaurus covers, Jurassic Express wins!

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Reynolds & Silver proved why they were a top five tag team, but Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus just proved why they’re THE tag team in AEW! Will Jurassic Express stay on track as they continue to roll through the tag division?


My Thoughts:

A wild episode of Rampage here from top to bottom. Trent VS Cole was a great opener, even with the overbooking of their factions brawling and distracting. Cole cheating to win keeps Trent strong, and the Mixed Tag on Dynamite is going to be great stuff. Statlander’s team losing because of the dysfunction between her and Leyla was pretty much a given, but it was still a good Six Woman Tag match. I’ve said this for Elevation and Dark but I really feel like Vickie should become the manager to Ford & Bunny and they should join them to expand the Vicious Vixens faction officially. And we got a good vignette to hype up Rosa VS Mercedes, that match will be great stuff.

Of course Spears a win, but his promo was the real point of the moment. He insults Wardlow while calling out Punk, this is just all the more reason for Wardlow to turn on The Pinnacle. We got a good promo from The Men of the Year because Lambert didn’t say anything, but I feel like it’s a mistake for Scorpio to say he’ll wait for Sammy VS Cody to happen. I’m pretty sure a lot of Cody staying away is because Go Big Show is happening right now, so that means Scorpio is going to be waiting a long time for the “undisputed” TNT Championship match to happen. Starks calling out Lethal only for Lethal to call him out was great, and Starks VS Lethal is going to be a great FTW title match.

And then the AEW World Tag Team Championship match was an awesome main event. Both teams got so much in, and this was a great first win for Jurassic Express to retain the titles. They’re going to have a great string of these, and at this point, I feel like the only ones on a level to dethrone them are the Young Bucks, reDRagon or Santana & Ortiz. Santana & Ortiz might be the team that need it most, too, as they really have been on standby while doing Inner Circle related stories. Those were all great stories, but the only ones really standing out from those were Jericho and Sammy. Proud ‘n’ Powerful should definitely challenge Jurassic Express at Revolution and win.

My Score: 8.7/10

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. Darby is distracted and Buddy V-TRIGGERS him out of the ring! Buddy goes out to RAM Darby into railing, and then RAM him into more railing!

Buddy wraps the bad leg around the ropes to pull, but Darby rakes eyes! The ref counts, both men let go, but Darby goes up so he can hit the THROWBACK STUNNER! Buddy flops out of the ring, and now Darby climbs the corner! Darby SUPER COFFIN DROPS!! Both men are down and fans are thunderous again! Darby forces himself back up, and he puts Buddy in the ring. But then the lights go out! And when they’re back, BRODY AND MALAKAI are here!

Sting has his baseball bat, he’s keeping them from approaching, but then ORTIZ runs out! Ortiz kendo stick SMACKS Brody on the back! Malakai BOOTS Ortiz down and rains down fists! Sting SMACKS Brody with the bat! And again! But Buddy has Darby for a RUNNING POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and fans are thunderous! Ortiz and Malakai are brawling up the ramp, with Julia hurrying after, as AEW goes picture in picture!

Buddy stands back up and he looms over Darby. Buddy drags Darby up, but Darby resists the abdominal stretch. Buddy still pulls Darby’s arm back, but Darby pops free and climbs up around to a SLEEPER! Buddy endures, and he RAMS Darby into buckles! Darby holds on and he leans on the hold! Buddy fights back up, and he runs to CANNONBALL into the corner! Both men are down as Darby lets go of the hold! Buddy stomps Darby, CLUBS him, then drags him up again. Buddy trips Darby, ties up the legs, and Dynamite goes to break.

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?

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?

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.

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite next week!

On top of Hangman VS Moxley, Round 3, and on top of The Acclaimed in action, we get Darby VS Joe for the AEW TNT Championship, NO HOLDS BARRED!! What won’t these two do to finally settle things?

 

Mark Briscoe VS Jay Lethal!

To honor the memory of the late, great Jay Briscoe, his brother and tag partner, as well a his long time friend and rival, will close out tonight. Ian Riccaboni and Caprice Coleman join Excalibur on commentary for this one, because this one is for family!

AEW returns from break and Mar makes his entrance, holding onto the ROH World Tag Team Championships. Bobby Cruise makes the introductions as the emotions already well up inside Lethal and Mark. The bell rings, Lethal and Mark shake hands not just to uphold the Code of Honor, but to share in genuine emotion. The fans fire up as the two circle and tie up. Mark headlocks for a takeover, Lethal headscissors, but Mark kips free. They reset and tie up again. Mark wrenches to a wristlock, then gets a top wristlock. Lethal powers out, Mark ducks ‘n’ dodges and slides, to arm-drag Lethal down!

Fans fire up but Lethal fights up to whip Mark. Mark reverses but Lethal goes up the corner and leaps. Mark gets under that, Lethal slides under but runs into a scoop and SLAM! Mark goes for legs but Lethal kangaroo kicks him away. Lethal arm-drags now, and the two stand off. Fans applaud as the two take a moment to catch their breath and wipe their eyes. Fans rally up, Mark and Lethal tie up again. They go around, Mark puts Lethal in the ring, but Lethal turns it around. The ref counts, Lethal CHOPS! Mark stares Lethal down and says, “It’s like that?” Lethal says, “Yeah, it’s like that.” So Mark turns Lethal around to CHOP back!

Lethal nods and smiles. Mark eggs Lethal on so Lethal CHOPS! Mark CHOPS! Lethal CHOPS! Mark CHOPS! They CHOP and CHOP and Mark gets the edge! Mark fires up but Lethal CHOPS and CHOPS! Lethal whips, Mark reverses and runs in to clothesline! Mark snapmares, runs and basement BOOTS! Fans fire up and Mark brings Lethal up. Mark UPPERCUTS, then whips. Lethal reverses and hip tosses! Cartwheel and basement dropkick! Fans rally as Lethal stalks Mark to ropes. Lethal brings Mark up, suplexes, but Mark slips free to waistlock. Lethal elbows free, runs, but Mark follows to forearm!

Mark reels Lethal in, fans fire up, and Mark turns Lethal for a very Jay Briscoe style NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up for the shoutout and Mark covers, TWO! Mark dares Lethal to get up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Lethal goes to the apron, Mark waits on him to get up and then storms over. Lethal clings to ropes, the ref counts, and Mark lets off.

Fans fire up as Mark ROCKS Lethal! Lethal ROCKS Mark, Mark shouts and ROCKS Lethal! And kicks low! And CHOPS! And then LARIATS Lethal back into the ring, only for Lethal to DROPKICK Mark off the apron! Lethal builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Mark hits railing!

Lethal paces around the way, rolls into the ring just to refresh the count, and then he goes back for Mark. Lethal brings Mark up to put him in the ring, covers, ONE! Lethal pushes Mark down again, ONE! Lethal clamps on a chinlock to grind Mark down. Mark endures, fights up, and throws body shots. Lethal snapmares and basement dropkicks Mark down! Lethal covers, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Lethal goes back to the chinlock and grinds Mark down again. Mark fights up, throws body shots and elbows, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Mark ROCKS Lethal, CHOPS him, then fires off fast hands! REDNECK KUNG FU!

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.
