Adam Cole VS Jake Atlas!
The Panama City Playboy heard the news, and he wants to “welcome” the Muscle of El Camino to AEW personally. But will the current #1 contender have more than he bargained for going against the newest signee? Or will it still be all about Adam Cole BAYBAY?
The bell rings and the two tie up. Cole gets the arm and wrenches through to a wristlock. Atlas rolls, wrenches back to get the wristlock, but Cole rolls and rolls and wrenches back. Atlas slips through, has the arms and spins Cole to a headlock and takeover! Cole scrambles around but Atlas keeps him down. Cole headscissors, Atlas moves around, headstands and pops free! Atlas mocks the BAYBAY and then eggs Cole on. Fans rally, the two circle, and they tie up, only for Cole to kick low! Cole ROCKS Atlas, whips him to ropes, but Atlas reverses. Cole holds ropes to avoid the dropkick! But Atlas avoids the shining wizard!

Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish head out to celebrate with their guy, Cole, and Cole gets a mic. “Happy New Year, Jake Atlas! Because in about one minute, congratulations, you earned another ass whooping.” But as medics check on Atlas, here comes Orange Cassidy! And he wraps a fist with a chain! Best Friends hurry up to reinforce him, and they run off Cole and reDRagon! Will Freshly Squeezed have to wait a little longer for revenge?
AEW has breaking news!
Dustin Rhodes lets us know, “Due to medical protocol, my brother Cody Rhodes will not be in Charlotte, North Carolina Saturday night for Battle of the Belts to face Sammy Guevara for the TNT title. Opportunity has knocked for another member of the Rhodes Family: me, the Natural, Dustin Rhodes.” Sammy Guevara’s response is that he “doesn’t give a sh*t. It can be Dustin Rhodes, Cody Rhodes, it could be any Rhodes.” And he also doesn’t care if it’s interim or not, he vows to walk out with the gold at Battle of the Belts. Will this change of plans help the Spanish God reign again? Or will Dustin protect the honor of the Rhodes Family?
Backstage interview with Andrade El Idolo.
Tony Schiavone is with Andrade and his assistant, Jose, and asks why last week, Andrade distracted Sting & Darby Allin for The Acclaimed to attack from behind. Andrade says, “First, Tony, this problem is not with Mr. Sting. My question is, why this little kid works for Sting?” Schiavone points out that Darby doesn’t work for Sting, they’re friends. Oh, okay, how does Schiavone know that? Well, he knows them very well. Okay, okay. Andrade is so busy, he and Jose need new assistants. So Andrade offers Sting payment to get Darby Allin. Schiavone is pretty sure that isn’t going to work out. Is Andrade going to regret thinking of Darby as just a worker for hire?
Hook VS Aaron Solo w/ QT Marshall!
The Factory wanted him, so Team Taz sent him! Will the Handsome Devil show QT and Solo that he really is all that and a bag of chips?
The bell rings and Hook already stares Solo down. Fans are singing, “Hook is gonna kill~ you” but Solo tells them to shut up. Solo and Hook feel out the grapple, Solo is more messing with the hair than taking this seriously. They tie up with knuckle locks and go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength, and then Hook lifts Solo to BACK DROP him! Solo scrambles to ropes, QT wants the ref to keep Hook back, and Hook gives Solo space. They circle, feel things out, and Solo shoots in to waistlock.

Ricky Starks speaks from commentary.
He’s got some big news for Battle of the Belts! He thought it was a damn shame that the FTW Championship was NOT defended on that night. But he is Absolute Ricky Starks, he talked with Tony Khan, he is defending his title against Matt Sydal! the reason Starks wanted Sydal was for Dante Martin! Starks is gonna prove a point. Dante took three matches to beat Sydal, it’ll take Starks just one. And then Dante will have “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs to worry about on Wednesday, because Dante isn’t gonna survive!
AEW hears from both TayJay and Penelope Ford & The Bunny.
“Last week on Rampage, we left a bloodstain mark on AEW. Tay, Anna, we had to snuff the good out of you. Blood had to be spilled, because that’s how villains are made.” But Anna Jay & Tay Conti say that the best part was piledriving Ford through a table. Bunny & Ford still did what they set out to do, and that was to make sure no one ever forgets their names.
Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter w/ Rebel VS Riho & Ruby Soho!
The Dentist and her sidekick- er, assistant look to make sure momentum is on their side going into Battle of the Belts. But the Runaway had a point that Britt has never defeated Riho without help. Will this tag match ironically just prove that point? Or will Britt look to win two nights in a row?
The teams sort out, and Rebel drags Ruby out of the ring! Britt and Hayter mug Riho, really only proving Ruby’s point from Wednesday. Ruby gets back in and she goes after Britt!

Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year speak.
“Let me get this straight. Now it’s Dustin and Sammy for the interim TNT belt? Tony, are you booking championship matches or the next episode of Rhodes to the Top?” He doesn’t know who does more sucking up, Cody to Tony or Tony to the TNT reality show execs. Either way, there’s a lot of sucking going on right about now. No wonder Bambi Rhodes is the CBO. Not to break their hearts more, but Ethan Page says you can’t expect anyone to use logic in running this place. If so, then a top five wrestler like Scorpio Sky would be in the match! Scorpio says there doesn’t even need to be a match or interim title! Scorpio should just be crowned the champion immediately!
Scorpio hasn’t been pinned in 221 days, hasn’t lost a singles match in over 300 days, and he could beat both Dustin and Sammy on the same night! Ethan says Sammy knows there’s unsettled business here, but Dustin? Ethan could knock him on his ass any night of the week! So tomorrow, they’ll be watching very, very closely. Will the interim TNT Champion have to worry about these wolves hunting them down?
Mark Henry talks with the main eventers.
Henry wants to talk with Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz first, but “with all due respect,” Jeff Parker speaks up to take over. Kingston, just do them a favor and stand there with your mouth shut. How many times do they have to do this? Week after week, they embarrass Kingston, and yet- Oh, Kingston, Santana & Ortiz decide to just bounce. Matt Lee is done with the “pulled the tights” excuse. Where are they going? They want to go to the ring already? Daniel Garcia says that they got embarrassed last week, they’ll just get embarrassed again this week. Garcia has Kingston’s number, he is smarter in the ring than Kingston, he’ll prove it every time, especially with tonight being no rules.
Wait, Kingston, Santana & Ortiz found Garcia & 2point0 and attack! The fight is on already as Kingston fires off on Garcia, Santana has Parker, and Ortiz disappears down the hall with Lee! Henry says it’s time for the main event! Will these three keep brawling all through the commercial break?!

Kingston frees his arm, Jericho even has the mad ball. Will Jericho and Kingston put aside their differences to go after their common enemies?
What a wild episode of Rampage! Cole VS Atlas was a great match, but since this was all recorded on Wednesday, it was already reported out there that Atlas legit hurt his leg at the end there. There’s some irony to how it wasn’t as bad as Rey Fenix’s arm, yet Atlas is the one hurt. Cassidy and faction running Not Undisputed Era off was good stuff, there’s a lot more to do there as the story of Cole stuck between all his friends develops. Maybe there’s a clash of reDRagon and Young Bucks the very next time the Bucks try to help Cole win. Hook VS Solo was good stuff, and naturally Hook wins. I bet we’re getting Hook VS QT next after that.
I really like that Starks took the initiative and wants to defend his FTW Championship. He’ll have a great match against Sydal and naturally retain. I feel like Dante will find a way to win against Hobbs, and then I hope we get Starks VS Dante for the FTW title. Britt & Hayter VS Riho & Ruby was a pretty good tag match, and it was great that Riho got the win but over Hayter. I’m pretty sure the Battle of the Belts is where Britt finally defeats Riho to retain the title, and then Britt can move on to any number of other contenders. Cody not being cleared is a shame, Dustin being the replacement definitely plays into what Lambert’s been going on about, and I feel like this is how we circle back to Sammy feuding with Men of the Year.
Andrade had a good promo to explain what’s going on with him, Darby and Sting. I feel like it’s becoming Andrade’s running joke that he thinks factions/stables have a boss and everyone else works for that boss. And then we got an awesome main event, and I love that it started as a brawl backstage. I mean, what stops one side of that main event interview to go after the other if they’re all in the same building anyway? Great stuff all over, the Faces winning only for the Heels to go after them was a great way to bring Jericho into this again, and I would think we’re at least getting Jericho and Kingston as a team to go against 2point0 specifically, with Santana & Ortiz keeping Garcia away.
My Score: 8.6/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (5/28/22)
A special Dark before Double or Nothing!
AEW deals a five card stud!
Before going Double or Nothing, AEW has a special episode of Dark! Will Darby Allin be rolling into his grudge match with Kyle O’Reilly?
- Anna Jay VS Sandra Moone; wins.
- Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Adriel Noctis, Gregory Sharpe & Matt Brannigan; win(s).
- Six Woman Tag: Riho, Yuka Sakazaki & Skye Blue VS Nyla Rose, Diamante & Emi Sakura; win.
- Six Man Tag: Death Triangle VS The Factory; wins.
- Darby Allin VS Brandon Cutler; wins.
Decent looking card here as another pre-PPV special. Anna will get a good win here as the warm-up for Jade Cargill and the TBS Championship. Obviously the House of Black and Death Triangle will get wins in their tune-ups before facing each other, and of course Darby will win not just because he’s facing Kyle O’Reilly soon, but because it’s Brandon Cutler. That match that could go either way is the Six Woman match, with a lot of fan favorites and strong competitors in the division.

It seems anything the Hardys can do, the Bucks can do better! But then they attack Gangrel! Seems he is part of them making an example to the Hardys! They get Gangrel down, but the REAL Hardys appear! “DELETE! DELETE!” The Bucks stand their ground as they stare down the Hardys, but they run into kicks! Cutler attacks! But then they turn their attention to him. Gangrel kicks Cutler and hits the IMPALER! And then a TWIST OF FATE from the real Matt Hardy! SWANTON BOMB for the real Jeff Hardy! Gangrel makes up with his old friends, but will the Hardys be able to DELETE the Elite?
Darby Allin speaks.
“It wasn’t Adam Cole, it wasn’t Bobby Fish. It wasn’t the Young Bucks, it was you, Kyle O’Reilly. It was you who took out sting.” Darby wants a fight at Double or Nothing with Kyle, or else he’ll interfere with Cole’s match, the Young Bucks’ match, and he’ll just make that night a living hell. So let’s make it official: Darby Allin VS Kyle O’Reilly, Double or Nothing. Will #KillerKyle accept the Relentless One’s challenge?
Max Caster w Gunn Club VS Dante Martin!
Platinum Max and Angel Dorado faced off on the very first episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, and now here, just after AEW turns three years old, they meet again! But will it be a repeat of history? Or will Dante show how much he’s improved since that day? Caster has a rap, of course. “Acclaimed ‘n’ the Gunns, we the new hot thing. Dante’s out of the break, already in the ring. I’ma bend your knees like the shmoney dance. Man, you couldn’t get laid at the bunny ranch! Your girl told me that you such a bitch. I’ma put you on the shelf like your brother is! Top Flight’s ’bout to crash, boy! You getting beat by Acclaimed and the Ass Boys!”
Austin says they talked about this, don’t use that name. “LOS ANGELES!” No, VEGAS, stupid! Oh, right. LAS ANGE- NO!! Bowens gets the mic and says, LAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! But Dante springboards and takes out Caster & said Ass Boys! But then Billy Gunn CLOBBERS Dante and RAMS him into the steps! Billy then helps Caster get in the ring so this match can start. The ref reprimands and EJECTS rest of the club! Bowens can’t believe it, and Dante rolls Caster up! TWO!! Dante springs up but Caster KICKS the leg out! Caster stomps the leg again and again, then covers. ONE, but Caster hurries to get Dante back up.
Caster has the leg, Dante CLUBS him down, throws forearms then KICKS! Dante whips, Caster reverses and CLOBBERS Dante, to then GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Cover, ONE!! Rampage goes picture in picture as Caster stalks Dante. Caster drags Dante up but Dante throws body shots. Caster grabs hair! Dante knees low, runs up the corner, and leaps, but into Caster’s arms! Caster SLAMS Dante down, gets the leg and ties him up, FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK! Dante endures and reaches out, fans rally up, and Dante works to turn it over! Dante turns the leglock! Caster endures, but he gets the ROPEBREAK! The ref undoes the hold, Dante storms over but Caster trips him! Caster SMASHES the knee into the mat, then wraps Dante up with a leg inside the chinlock!
Dante endures so Caster shifts to focus on an arm. Dante fights up, Caster CLUBS him down. Caster whips Dante to the apron but Dante ROCKS him back. Dante springboards, but Caster BOOTS him down! Caster drags Dante in and snap suplexes! Caster covers, ONE, and Rampage goes to break.
Rampage returns, Cater back hands then back suplexes Dante! Caster goes up the corner fast, aims and MIC- NOPE! Caster has to land on his feet as Dante moves! Dante elbows Caster, sunset flips, TWO! Caster gets the leg, steps through again but Dante kicks him away to O’Conner Roll on the rebound! TWO, and Dante springs up and over! Dante jumps over again, CLOBBERS Caster, and starts to rally! Fans fire up and Dante runs at the corner, but is put on the apron. Dante KICKS Caster, goes up top, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Dante hurries to the apron, fans fire up but Caster blocks the gamangiri. Dante HOTSHOTS, then resets! NOSEDIVE!! Cover, Dante wins!
Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall
Dante avenges his loss on Elevation! Will this help Dante fly to the top of the ranks in the near future?
AEW looks closely at the Owen Hart Cup Men’s Finals.
Samoa Joe says that when it comes to facing someone like Adam Cole, you must take everything into account. Cole says he is in the finals with a man he truly admires. People look at the legacy Joe has left on this great sport and Cole finds himself where he has to beat that legacy. Cole says he is a world-class pro-wrestler, he ill be a franchise player for AEW for years to come, and it all starts with these finals! After Cole beats Joe and wins the Owen Hart Tournament, the world will remember Adam Cole BAYBAY. But Joe says as the ROH World Television Champion, Cole’s time is near.
The Men of the Year and Dan Lambert are in the ring.
Lambert says we live in crazy times, and there are very few things we can count on in this world. Death, taxes, and if you have bad acne, and a girlfriend whose CM Punk merch shirt is two sizes bigger than yours, you’re an AEW fan! If you need anything in the world of combat sports, come see Dynamite Dan. That’s what Scorpio did when he needed a new TNT Championship belt. These usually take six months to handcraft, but Dan called his buddy Ron at Red Leather Belts, and not only did he put this together in less than a week, but this is a masterpiece truly worthy of Scorpio Sky, LA’s favorite champion.
Ethan does the honors, and it is a GOLD strap with purple ribbon! The TNT Champion honors the Black Mamba, and Ethan says that now that Sky has a belt to match his talent, we can all finally be finished with the trash known as Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti! But speaking of, they and Frankie Kazarian are back on the tron. They hate to interrupt the celebration, but here is breaking news! A break in at the American Top Team HQ! Luckily, they’re on the scene! They bust in, keep people from calling authorities, and they see the trophies. They’ll take some of those. Oh hey, the “participation trophy” TNT belt! Kaz wants that belt!
Sammy says hold on, there’s something better. The BMF Championship! That is one of a kind and beautiful. You thinking what he’s thinking? Kaz sure hopes not. SamTay say they’ll “celebrate” with this belt. Sammy SMASHES the case open and they grab the BMF belt! And a few other belts, too. If Men of the Year want all these back, they’ll be in Vegas on Sunday. And bring VanZant, too. BMF: Be Mad, Fellas. Scorpio is FURIOUS! This has gone on way too long! If they want their mixed trios match, then those three scumbags against the Men of the Year & PAIGE VANZANT is happening!
But here’s the kicker: If MOTY win, then Sammy and Frankie are BARRED from challenging for the TNT Championship! They’ve been begging for this ass kicking a long time, and they’ll get it at Double or Nothing! And after that, they are DONE! But now that SamTay & the Heavy Metal Rebel have the match they wanted, will they get the revenge they wanted, too?
Mark Henry speaks tonight’s main eventers.
He starts with Ruby about what this tournament means to her. These last couple of months, Ruby’s been doubting herself, second guessing herself, losing the confidence she had when she arrived in AEW. Then she earned her shot in this tournament. This could be a turning point in her career, even if she has to beat her friend and whatever version of herself she’s bringing to the ring. Kris says that it seems everyone “needs” to win this. But Ruby needs to understand Kris has been here since day one, and what does she have to shown for it? No title, a blown out knee, and a back-up plan to the prestigious tournament. And all her friends have turned on her.
So Ruby needs to understand Kris isn’t letting this get away from her like all the other opportunities. No one, not friend or enemy, can stop her! Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Runaway’s destination be Double or Nothing? Or will Statlander’s new form take the form of an Owen Hart Cup finalist?
Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament: Ruby Soho VS Kris Statlander!
The bell rings and fans fire up as the two circle and tie up. Kris headlocks, hits the takeover, but Ruby keeps her shoulders up. Ruby headscissors, squeezes tight, but Kris kips free. Ruby sweeps, Kris kips up and sweeps back! Ruby rushes after the bad leg but Kris has the ropes. The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and fans are dueling hard. The two tie up, Kris headlocks but Ruby powers up to power out. Kris runs Ruby over and fans fire up. Kris runs, Ruby drops then shoots in to waistlock. Kris throws Ruby off and flexes! Things speed up again, Kris runs Ruby over, covers, ONE! Kris drags Ruby up to wrench and whip to the corner.
Ruby goes up and over, shows a punch, but she pulls it back! Kris gets in Ruby’s face about literally pulling punches, and the two tie up again. Kris monkey flips but Ruby comes back to wheelbarrow and arm-drag! Ruby runs in at the corner, Kris dodges but Ruby FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Kris blocks the next arm-drag to ROCK Ruby with a forearm! Ruby KICKS the leg, Kris CLOBBERS Ruby! Fans fire up while Rampage goes picture in picture.
Kris glares at Ruby, drags her up, and suplexes. Kris holds Ruby up for a count of 10, then 20, before the SLAM! Cover, TWO! Kris drags Ruby up, wraps on a chinlock then makes it a cobra clutch! Ruby endures, fights up, throws body shots, and runs, into Kris’ arms! Kris SLAMS Ruby down, then SPLASHES! Cover, TWO! Kris grows annoyed but she rallies the fans up. Kris drags Ruby up, scoops, but Ruby slips out to roll Kris up! TWO, and Kris scoops Ruby to SLAM her again! Kris drags Ruby up, brings her around, but Ruby turns back suplex into CROSSBODY! Ruby bounces off and the ref starts a standing count.
Kris sits up at 3, Ruby follows at 4, and they go after each other at 5 with forearms. Ruby ROCKS Kris, Kris ROCKS Ruby, and back again! They stand, throw more forearms, then Ruby HEADBUTTS! Ruby runs, but the monkey flip is bounced off the ropes! Ruby tries a DDT but Kris throws her off! Ruby comes back, into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Rampage returns to single picture as fans rally up. Kris whips Ruby to a corner and uppercuts! Kris then fireman’s carries Ruby up the ropes! Ruby fights with elbows, slips around and SUPER STEINERS! Kris flounders, Ruby runs, but into a POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!!
Kris can’t believe it! Ruby survives and she gets to ropes while fans fire up! Kris runs in at the corner but Ruby dodges! Kris’ bad arm hits buckles! She still fireman’s carries, “This is Awesome!” but the bad arm holds the trophy lift back! NO FUTURE! But Kris tumbles out of the ring! Ruby hurries to get Kris up but Kris is almost dead weight. Ruby gets Kris on her feet but Kris shoves her away. Kris puts Ruby on the apron but Ruby FLYING RANAS back! Ruby puts Kris in, hurries up the corner, but Kris rushes in! Ruby ROCKS Kris first, reels her in by the arm, TORNADO ARMBAR DDT!! Then KIMURA!!
Kris endures as Ruby cranks on the arm, and Kris reaches out for the ROPEBREAK! Ruby drags Kris up again, turns her, but no neckbreaker as Kris pushes free. Ruby goes up, but no Deadly Nightshade! Kris has the Electric Chair, but Ruby tries to bend back. No Poison-Rana, WHIPLASH INTO BUCKLES! O’Conner Roll, CHAOS THEORY!! And then the fisherman, DRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?! Ruby survives and no one can believe it! Kris snarls, she drags Ruby up, and she CLOBBERS her point blank! Kris gets the legs and the arms, SPIDE- NO! Ruby kicks and kicks and kicks! Kris staggers, Ruby sweeps the legs! Oklahoma Roll, RUBY WINS!!
Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall (advances to the finals)
Tony Schiavone gets in the ring to interview the winner, but Britt Baker shows up first! She has a mic but Ruby tells everyone to cut the music. Britt can put the mic down. Everyone’s listened to Britt over and over, no one wants to listen to her anymore! Ruby gets it, the fans are upset she win. She did what she had to do to win the match. But Ruby needs to tell Britt something. Kris is Ruby’s friend, she loves and respects her, but look what she did. And Ruby hates Britt, so she’s gonna hurt her. Ruby has been telling Britt since Grand Slam that Britt has a receipt coming. Ruby’s cashing it in at Double or Nothing! Britt just smiles, but will she still be smiling after the Owen Hart Cup Women’s Finals?
A great episode here for Rampage, especially as a go-home. Great opening contest out of Bryan VS Sydal, wild to think that these guys only faced off once in ROH and missed each other in WWE, because this felt like they’d been going back and forth for years. Bryan wins, of course, for the momentum going into the Anarchy in the Arena 10 Man. Could be a sign that someone on Blackpool Combat Club & Friends is taking the loss to JAS. Great cosplay by the Bucks, that was a really fun match of them squashing Cruz and Rust. Also good to see Rust somewhere after WWE cut him way too soon, too. Great to see Gangrel, and of course the Hardys get their own bit. Bucks VS Hardys at Double or Nothing could go either way but I’m leaning towards Hardys.
They didn’t advertise Caster VS Dante but this was a great surprise. Obviously good stuff within the Acclaimed Gunn Club faction, and we got a very good match. Caster won the Elevation match they highlighted, Dante wins this one, maybe they’ll give this a tiebreaker match down the line. Scorpio Sky having a purple ‘n’ gold TNT belt is a great choice, and then an honestly genius move from SamTay & Kaz to steal some of the belts American Top Team “can’t replace.” A Mixed Trios is actually better than just 2v2, and I do like the stipulation of blocking Kaz and Sammy as contenders. It does give it away just a little that SamTay & Kaz win, but I bet Ethan takes the loss. PVZ isn’t being brought in to take the pin and no one is going to pin the TNT Champion unless it’s for the belt.
Great promo vignette from Cole and Joe, and I’m still leaning towards Cole winning. Great promos from Ruby and Kris going into their match, it really added to the fire in that main event, which was a great main event. Ruby using what Velvet told her was good story stuff, but I didn’t expect fans to boo it as hard as they did. Kris is a fan favorite, so maybe she comes around to get a title shot, like the TBS Championship after Jade beats Jay. I did like Ruby’s promo to end the show, shutting Britt up before she can begin. But Ruby being so adamant about getting that fire back, pretty sure she’s losing to Britt.
