Ivy Nile speaks.
“In two weeks, the Final Boss, Meiko Satomura, is going to find out what the Pitbull of Diamond Mine is all about. I’m a different breed, I’m on a different level. No girl here can stand toe to toe with me. Meiko Satomura is going to find that out. I didn’t travel halfway across the world to not take home the gold. I’m taking this one home to Diamond Mine.” Will the Best in the World feel the pressure when she takes on Ivy for the NXT UK Women’s Championship?
NXT UK hears from Sam Gradwell, and Von Wagner.
The Thunderstorm says, “There he is, Big Von. How’s it goin’, mate? Last time I saw you, you were stamping and shrieking like a unruly chimp. That’s what happens when you grow up to the size of a brontosaurus. You group up with everyone being scared of ya. But there’s not one speck of exaggeration in my eyes or soul when I tell ya I am not scared of Von Wagner.” But Von says it’s obvious Gradwell likes to run his mouth. Gradwell does his talking but Von does damage in the ring. Gradwell’s never faced someone with Von’s size or power. Gradwell admits Von is an impressive fighter, but so is Gradwell. Von’s never faced someone like him, either.
Gradwell says Von looks like he hasn’t gotten any brains since birth. Von’s favorite meal is probably medium-rare Wooly Mammoth, no seasoning. Von says you can tell Gradwell is aggressive, but that won’t stop Von from punching him in the face. Gradwell’s faced big men before, and fighters, brawlers, submission artists, but bloody hell! Tossing Jiro into the crowd!? Von is going to show Gradwell what big business is. This is Wagner’s World, Gradwell’s just living in it. Von’s down watching film, and Gradwell’s ready to put in the work. Will the Thunderstorm be able to wobble Von’s jowls and rattle his kidneys before Von can do the same to him?

Mark Andrews has NXT UK Media follow him.
He peeks in on Kenny Williams getting on security’s case, saying their “pea brains” can’t keep up with his evidence. If any of them see the masked men, let him know. When Kenny gets his hands on them, he’ll rip them limb from limb! Andrews spooks Kenny and asks what’s going on. This is serious business! Someone is stalking Kenny! Andrews is on here, too! Well, maybe not worry about that and worry more about their match. Andrews should relax, he might aggravate his shoulder. Andrews says he was out three months with that shoulder because of Kenny! The security has Andrews stay back, and Kenny says see ya later!

Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar VS Damon Kemp!

NXT UK looks closer at the Tag Team Championship Triple Threat.
Trent Seven groans about having to sit in this chair and talk about “Ashton & Ollie” again. Ashton Smith points out that he and Oliver Carter fight by a code. A code that Seven no longer has, after he put his feet up on the ropes to keep the pin! Third chance, third time’s the charm! Oliver Carter says they’ll make it rain on Moustache Mountain! But Rohan Raja says that with Moustache Mountain and Smith & Carter too busy worrying about each other, they’ve taken their eyes off Die Familie. Seven says alright, how about we focus on “D Family.” No, it’s Di-e Fa-mi-li-e. Whatever.
But Raja says the record speaks for itself: victory after victory after victory. But Tyler Bate says Die Familie has yet to face anyone on Moustache Mountain’s level. Raja says Bate & Seven might be the pillars of NXT UK, but it is time for those pillars to fall. Teoman says they’re not the bad guys, they’re the good guys! They take care of each other! What about the other teams? Smith says he fights for Carter just as he would his own children. Some day, when his daughter writes a eulogy for him, she’ll say that her father and his tag partner became the NXT UK Tag Team Champions. They’re closer than family.
Bate & Seven say they are also closer than brothers, but Raja says the champions aren’t even on the same page. Seven does say a win is a win and Bate has a smile that says, “Whatever you say.” Raja sees how desperate Seven is not to lose. Teoman says desperate men make mistakes. Seven asks Bate if he’s heard “Dye Family’s” catchphrase. “The eye sees everything.” Well you know what the eye will see after this? Raja says it’ll be Die Familie as champions, Carter says it’ll be the beating Die Familie takes from the Hottest Tag Team Under the Sun, but Seven says the eye will be looking through a telescope, at the peak’s summit, and see Moustache Mountain. The Triple Threat is coming, who defies the odds to be THE NXT UK Tag Team Champions?
Damon Kemp returns backstage.
Wolfgang is there and checks on him. That was tough luck out there. But while Kemp’s wanting to learn the British way of doing things, to beat guys like Sha & Dar, he should learn how to do things the Glasgow way. Kemp nods, and he follows Wolfgang out. Is Gallus going to give the Golden Gopher some special pointers?
Heritage Cup Rules: A-Kid VS Charlie Dempsey!
Speaking of Die Familie, they love using the numbers game, all in the name of supporting each other. But that “support” won’t be around with Sid Scala putting a ringside ban on Teoman & Rohan Raja! Will the Spanish Sensation finally get a fair fight out of the technical prodigy? Or will Dempsey have some real nasty tricks all his own?

Winner: Charlie Dempsey, by pinfall
One minute and 34 seconds left in round six, and Dempsey shouts out his true heritage with this win! But has Dempsey proven what lows he’ll go to in order to rise up the ranks in NXT UK?
A great episode for NXT UK, with a lot of good set-up for the big title matches coming up. Good little promo from Ivy Nile to hype up her taking on Meiko Satomura, but I don’t see Ivy taking the title from the Final Boss and bringing it to the US. Great promo vignette for the NXT UK Tag Team Championship Triple Threat, though the promo skills are mostly with Moustache Mountain and Smith & Carter. The match will still be great, and this could be how Bate & Seven lose the belts without taking the pin. At a certain point, I feel like Bate & Seven are going to NXT 2.0, and maybe even to RawDown. I can only hope British Strong Style reunites on SmackDown and that helps “Butch” Pete Dunne ditch Sheamus & Ridge Holland.
We also got good promos to set up the grudge matches. Andrews finding Kenny was a good promo, and you can bet the “masked bozo,” Tiger Turan will show himself during that. Gradwell and Wagner each watching highlights of the other man was a good promo idea, and Wagner actually sounded better here than his usual promos. Though at the same time, this was easy enough material: Von’s big, he beats people up, he’ll beat Gradwell up. Given that, pretty sure Gradwell gives Von one of his toughest matches since Von got himself into that Fatal 4 Way at the start of 2.0.
Very good opener out of Mark Coffey VS Saxon Huxley, and Coffey wins as a point of showing he can do things on his own. This will definitely motivate Joe Coffey to return and get in Mark’s face about thinking he’s better or something like that. Millie VS Lash was good, and I should’ve figured Lash would win. Though Lash lost in the Women’s Breakout Tournament, she’s still being built up. And at the same time, Millie is still building up on the slow burn towards her eventual title match with Meiko Satomura. Sha VS Kemp was very good, but I was rather surprised Sha got the win given the trend with the NXT 2.0 visitors. But Kemp getting help from Gallus is an interesting twist. Kemp and Wolfgang teaming up against Sha & Dar would be pretty cool.
A-Kid VS Dempsey in the Heritage Cup Rules match was a great main event. As usual with these kinds of matches, they push things to the late rounds, but this time, they were able to really bring up the drama with how close each round was when they ended. But to think, Dempsey would shout out William Regal with those brass knuckles. Dempsey gets a great win here, even though a Heel, and could move up towards the Heritage Cup Championship itself. Dar VS Dempsey would be a great one, and it won’t even matter who is Heel, Sha and Die Familie could cancel out.
My Score: 8.4/10

Steel Cage, MJF as Special Guest Referee: Wardlow VS Shawn Spears!
The final hurdle is here! If the War Dog can get through the Chair Man inside this cage, he’ll get Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Double or Nothing! But of course, stacking the deck as always, MJF is going to be the officiator in this match, wearing his own custom referee shirt. He claims he’ll call this right down the middle, but will MJF make sure Spears slays the giant and saves him from certain doom on Sunday?
Once again, Wardlow is in cuffs while being escorted to the ring. Fans chant, “WARD~LOW!” the whole way, and Wardlow steps inside the steel. MJF says he’s got those cuffs, as soon as he does the pat down. Wardlow is clean, but MJF “misplaced” the key. Fans boo, because they know this is just another way to rig this match! Spears attacks Wardlow outta nowhere, and MJF has the bell ring! Spears stomps, CLUBS and then throws body shots and more stomps. MJF whistles and has Spears back down, because he “found” the key. But then MJF stomps away on Wardlow, too! MJF knows Wardlow can’t attack him because that’ll violate the match contract!
Spears CLOBBERS Wardlow, stomps him, and MJF smirks. Wardlow gets up but elbows Spears away! Then BOOTS him! But MJF rakes Wardlow’s eyes! Fans boo but MJF eggs them on. Spears drags Wardlow up in the gap between ropes and steel, and both he and MJF run to RAM Wardlow into steel! MJF and Spears high-ten and then soak up the heat. Fans taunt Spears with “TEN! TEN! TEN!” and Spears brings the kneepad down. But Wardlow back drops Spears away! And BOOTS him! MJF stares Wardlow down because again, he can’t be touched. Wardlow endures the taunting, even as MJF SPITS in his face!
But then Wardlow BREAKS the cuffs on his own!? Wardlow CLOBBERS Spears over and over, THROWS him into the steel, then drags him up to TOSS him into more steel! Fans tell MJF he F’d up, but Spears HOTSHOTS Wardlow! Fans boo as Spears hurries up a corner, but Wardlow is after him! Wardlow won’t let Spears escape, he CUBS Spears over and over, then throws him down! Wardlow adjusts on the top rope to SWANTON BOMB! Cover, but of course MJF doesn’t count. Wardlow realizes he should’ve known better. Fans chant, “Ref, You Suck!” but MJF doesn’t care. He’s untouchable in this match! But Wardlow stepping closer does scare him…
Wardlow gets Spears up, but MJF LOW BLOWS him! Spears hurries to fireman’s carry, C4!! Cover, MJF is ready, TWO!! MJF went as fast as humanly possible and Wardlow still got out! Not only that, Spears realizes his finisher juts got buried! Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” as he stirs, but Spears goes outside the cage to get his chair! This non-escape cage match has to end in the ring but Spears brings in his insurance policy! MJF holds Wardlow up for Spears, and Spears winds up, but Wardlow moves! CHAIRSHOT TO MJF!! Wardlow didn’t need to touch MJF to get even with him! And now Spears is stunned as fans chant that he F’d up!
Spears then realizes Wardlow is standing back up. Spears turns around, Wardlow brings the straps down! Spears is now wishing escape was a way to win. Wardlow gets Spears up, POWERBOMB! But that’s just one! Here’s another POWERBOMB! And then a third POWERBOMB! The Powerbomb Symphony has the fans rocking, and a spare ref runs in! Wardlow sets up Spears’ chair, gets Spears back up, and fans are thunderous! Wardlow reels Spears in again, POWERBOMB ON THE CHAIR!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!
Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (WILL face MJF at Double or Nothing)
Wardlow got even with Spears, but now he wants MJF! Security rushes in but Wardlow DECKS each of them one at a time! There’s almost no end to these guys, but Wardlow gets that last one with a kick! Wardlow reels this guy in, gets him up, and BOMBS him against the cage!! The man falls into the gap, never to be seen again! Wardlow then climbs up the cage just to make a point that MJF can’t hold him back anymore! Is Wardlow not only going to win his freedom from MJF, but rid AEW of MJF once and for all?
AEW’s heart goes out to Uvalde, Texas.
After the tragedy of the school shooting, all any of us can really do is love each other and pray violence stops.
The Jericho Appreciation Society walks ‘n’ talks.
Daniel Garcia tells Blackpool Combat Club, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz that this Sunday, Double or Nothing, Anarchy in the Arena, the JAS shows you how violent sports entertainers can really be. But then hold on, who is this bozo wearing a Moxley shirt? Menard and Parker get in this guy’s face. Good quality shirt. Is this polyester? Parker asks if he wants a taste of his switchblade… comb. Y’know what happens when you’re a Moxley fan? FIREBALL from Jericho!! The Wizard strikes again! Will the JAS show no mercy to anyone who isn’t on their side?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
As we celebrate three years of AEW where it all began in Las Vegas, Nevada, we have the biggest AEW World Championship match ever on the biggest night ever, Double or Nothing. And the challenger is the Best in the World, CM PUNK! Fans fire up as Punk makes his entrance! And he sits cross-legged on the stage while he rallies the fans to get louder. Punk continues down to the ring and fans chant his name. Schiavone then introduces the other half of this face-to-face, the AEW World Champion, HANGMAN ADAM PAGE! Fans fire up again as the Cowboy makes his way out, belt on his shoulder.
Hangman joins Punk and Schiavone in the ring and Schiavone says these last few weeks, both men have joined commentary and watched the other go to work. Hangman’s used Go To Sleep, Punk’s used the Buckshot, and there’s been a lot of talk and now, for the first time, they’re standing here for a face-to-face interview. Schiavone starts with Punk, saying Punk is prepared for Double or Nothing and becoming the next AEW World Champion. Punk has a mixed reaction from Vegas but with plenty of fans chanting his name. Punk says it is safe to say, “the biggest moment of my career happened right here in Las Vegas.”
Punk is grateful to be in the position he is in, loves the fans all over the world, and plans to walk in challenger, and respectfully walk out the champion. Schiavone now goes to Hangman and says Hangman knows just who he is facing, what everyone knows about CM Punk, but this confidence level is off the charts for the challenger. Fans also have a mixed reaction for Hangman, and still plenty chanting, “COWBOY S*IT!” Hangman says he said exactly what he was going to do to Punk, and did he stutter? “There is nothing that you can do to me to take this championship away from me!”
Schiavone says this is a determined champion, but Punk says he isn’t so sure why Hangman takes this personally. Hangman is a champion because he is Hangman Adam Page, the toughest SOB in AEW, and he holds that gold for a reason. But there is a locker room full of people just like Punk waiting for their shot. This is just business. It’s Punk’s shot, it’s not personal. Schiavone says there seems to be respect here, but Hangman takes the mic to say, “I said three weeks ago exactly what I was going to do to you. I said I was going to destroy you. I said I was going to annihilate you, to embarrass you. And I did not mean at Double or Nothing. I meant right now.”
Punk smirks and says, “Okay,” as Hangman says he’s been waiting for this moment not just weeks, but for months. Hangman has imagined himself sitting on the stage, cross-legged, and he’d pull out a lighter to light a pipe bomb and roll it down to Punk’s feet and watch it blow up in Punk’s face! How cathartic it would feel, and how full circle for Punk, right here in Vegas. But now that we’re here… Hangman realizes that he just can’t do it. He can’t. Not because he’s afraid he’d get fired or because he’s afraid of Punk. But when Hangman thought about what he wanted to say, he realized it’s just what Punk would do.
And fighting Punk’s hatred, pettiness and cowardice with more of the same would not be the right thing to do. But Hangman will say face-to-face, man-to-man, how he feels about Punk. “I don’t hate you. I almost pity you. And I have no respect for you and what you’ve done since you’ve gotten here. You want this AEW World Championship? I don’t think you understand what it means to be a champion. After all these years, I don’t think you get it. Because it’s not just about what happens in this ring, it’s about what happens when that red light turns off. What happens when you go back through that curtain. Those small, quiet moments when you think no one’s watching. That’s what makes a champion.”
Hangman says Punk talks a big game about worker’s rights, but has shown the exact opposite since getting here. Hangman loves this place, cares about this place, this is his home! And at Double or Nothing, Hangman will not be defending this title against Punk. For the first time in Hangman’s life, he will be defending ALL ELITE WRESTLING from Punk! Fans fire up hearing that one! Hangman then offers the mic to Schiavone and he takes it back. Punk’s response is he doesn’t get why Hangman’s so angry and taking this personally. “It makes me a little bit confused. You’re kinda talking in circles, it’s a big riddle, but if you’re so upset that I’m here, you’re gonna have to do something about it on Sunday.
“Win, lose or draw, I respect you, Hangman. But remember, those roads you traveled to get here? They were paved by me. This house that you built? It was constructed with lumber from trees that I chopped down. The world you traveled to get here, to create All Elite Wrestling, happened because I gave you the blueprint. You will shake my hand Sunday. Y’know what, Hangman, you’re gonna shake my hand right now.” Punk holds out his hand, fans are a bit torn, and Punk says all this misplaced anger isn’t for Punk, it’s for Hangman himself. Now shake his hand. Hangman says no thanks, so Punk shoves him. And Hangman DECKS Punk!
Fans fire up as Punk is rather shocked by that move. But he also smiles, perhaps getting exactly what he wanted. Hangman scowls and storms off, will he have a better poker face when it’s Double or Nothing?
AEW looks closer at the coming TBS Championship rematch.
The Queenslayer made the save for Statlander on Rampage, but Jade Cargill asks, “Anna Who?” The girl she already beat? But Anna says she doesn’t get all the extra BS, like the lights and the pyro and the Baddies Section. Jade already beat dat ass, but Jay thinks she deserves another shot? Jay says after her lose, she learned from some of the best on the roster. Now, she’s ready to beat the best and be TBS Champion. Double or Nothing, Jade says you put all your money on her because she is nothing but money. Will #ThatBitchShow just get even bigger and better? Or will Number 99 be the one in 30-1?
The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!
William Regal is already on commentary as Jericho leads Parker, Menard, Garcia and Jake Hager out. But Jericho has the music cut so the fans can’t sing Judas. Vegas, you don’t have what it takes to sing that song, so sit down and shut up! No singing for Vegas! The JAS then also goes to commentary, because they’re going to watch this next match.
Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston VS Private Party!
The Maniac & The Mad King team up together again to prepare for Double or Nothing, and enter from the crowd! Bryan Danielson would’ve been here but he got his leg trapped between ramp and ring on Rampage last Friday.

AEW takes a closer look at the Owen Hart Cup.
Mark Henry says watching all the competition in these tournaments, he is sure Owen would be so proud. Toni Storm says just a few months ago, she thought she was out of wrestling for good. But now she is this close to the finals. Britt Baker vows to defeat Storm and win the tournament at Double or Nothing to prove once again she is the best. Kyle O’Reilly tells Samoa Joe, Double or Nothing will be an Undisputed Elite finals. But Joe ponders the question, “How do you beat someone like Kyle O’Reilly? A submission aficionado, a striking prodigy.” But like all fancy things, you just place it on the anvil and break it. And when Joe is down with Kyle, he’s coming for Adam Cole, BAYBAY.

The Hardy Boyz speak.
Matt tells the Young Bucks that their stories both began with a lot of similarities. They were all born and raised by wholesome, religious parents. They had innocent upbringings where they didn’t smoke or drink. They didn’t even curse! And they all had dreams of becoming pro-wrestlers. But that’s where the parallels end. The Hardys broke into the business in the early 90s, and it was a different industry back then, and a majorly different culture. The brutal, tough roads the Hardys had to walk, the Bucks could never, EVER have survived! The Bucks don’t have the grit, the resilience that these two have. The Hardys no only survived, but they became a revolutionary tag team.
Sure, the Bucks are talented, are Elite, but let’s call it like it is. When the Hardys look at the Bucks, and even when the fans look at the Bucks, all they see are Hardy Boy cosplayers! The reason the Hardys are here in AEW is to cement their legacies as the GOATs of tag team wrestling. Jeff says that was GR-E-E-E-E-EAT. Get it? Goats? But they’re not a team in their prime, they’re a team in their OVERPRIME, and it is overtime! The pressure is on to win. This is a clean slate for Jeff, it is his time approaching the eventual time. But this final run will be the best run!
So at Double or Nothing, the Bucks are just two little stepping stones on the Hardys’ way to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions to complete the collection! And if the Bucks think they’re in their prime, well, they will NEVER be better than the Hardys! The Hardys have been better at every stage of life! Better as babies, as kids, as teenagers, at their peak, and right here and now even as middle-aged and extreme! The Bucks may be elite, but this is the DELETE! They will DELETE the Bucks this Sunday! And there’s a saying: Never meet your heroes, they’ll probably disappoint you. But for the Bucks, it’ll be more like disappointed that they can never beat their heroes!
Triple Threat: Jungle Boy VS Ricky Starks VS Swerve Strickland!
Captain Charisma set up a prelude to the AEW World Tag Team Championship Triple Threat at Double or Nothing, because he wants his guy to get back at both the FTW Champion and the man who cost JB that FTW Championship.

Dan Lambert & the Men of the Year speak.
Lambert says, “Sammy, Tay and Frankie must have a combined IQ of room temperature with the air conditioning on if they thought for one second that busting up Scorpio’s TNT title belt was going to get them the match that they want. Well, somebody please tell these idiots about this new invention we have called the internet and show them how to look up American Top Team. Because maybe then, they would understand that winning every championship there is in combat sports means I probably have every belt maker in the world on speed dial.” That’s right, Lambert ordered Scorpio a brand new belt even before AEW’s favorite couple could tweet out a picture of themselves in the middle of some disgusting act wearing the old one.
So, Scorpio Sky gets a special Friday Night Rampage. The brand new, custom made TNT Championship, handcrafted in Scorpio’s image, will be presented to him and he will love it. Scorpio snaps his fingers and we cut away, but will Sammy, Tay & Frankie just look to break that belt up, too?
Schiavone is on stage.
This Sunday, the AEW Women’s World Championship will be defended. Schiavone introduces the champion, Thunder Rosa! La Mera Mera makes her way out, and Schiavone asks her about Deeb’s challenge. Rosa wants us to see her face. It has no face paint! This is the real Rosa, the face of someone who has worked and earned everything she has, and is grateful for being champion. That has never complained, either. Because that is what champions do. Deeb, “mi reina,” you are NOT a champion. Fans cheer Rosa on, and Rosa tells Deeb that she complains, is a little petty.
Rosa says Deeb points fingers at people and companies, pinning things on her past, with her questionable changes. Maybe Deeb should look in a mirror and blame herself. Rosa’s face used to look up to Deeb, but no more! And on Sunday, Deeb won’t see this face. On Sunday, the war paint is on. On Sunday, the warrior inside Rosa takes over! On Sunday, La Mera Mera will teach Deeb a lesson in respect for disrespecting Schiavone, for disrespecting Rosa’s mentor, Dustin Rhodes, for disrespecting the fans, and especially for disrespecting Rosa, the AEW Women’s World Champion!! And y’know what? Deeb will be very scared, because Rosa will haunt her forever!
AEW returns as Schiavone interviews Red Velvet backstage.
A tremendous match between The Chef and Kris Statlander in the Owen Hart Cup, but Statlander won. Velvet is surely upset. No sh*t, Schiavone. Velvet says she should have won that match, and she should be facing Ruby Soho. But speaking of, Soho walks in because she heard her name. Does Velvet have something to say to her? Yes, actually. If Soho needs to know how to beat Statlander, Velvet’s got this notebook right here. Statlander’s knee is messed up, and she has a bad shoulder, too.
Velvet leaves and Soho says she can admit, when she faced Statlander last time, Soho won by the skin of her teeth. But in the next round of the Owen Hart Cup, Soho knows she’s not facing the same Statlander. This notebook is useless, so Soho throws it away. Soho will keep what Velvet said in mind, though. Will the Runaway be able to get past whatever this new form the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has taken and head for Double or Nothing? And speaking of…

Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Semifinals: Samoa Joe VS Kyle O’Reilly!
The Panama City Playboy waits the winner of this at Double or Nothing, and he’s hoping for an Undisputed Finals! Will #KillerKyle keep that dream alive? Or will the Samoan Submission Machine make sure the Cup stays far out of their reach?
The bell rings and the two circle. Kyle and Joe test the waters with kicks, fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” and Joe withstands Kyle’s quick flurry! Joe backs Kyle down with his own kicks and knees, and even adds elbows and a KICK! Kyle staggers but he steadies himself and the two reset. Kyle shoots in, Joe switches, Kyle flips it to a facelock.

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (advances to the finals)
Even with one good arm, the ROH World Television Champion pulls off the victory! But here comes Adam Cole, BAYBAY! Cole and Joe have never had a match against each other before, and now they will in a historic finals match at Double or Nothing! Who will win the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament?
A great episode for Dynamite, especially as a go-home for Double or Nothing. For one, opening with the Steel Cage was an awesome move. I should’ve figured MJF would go that far to try and screw Wardlow over, but it was awesome how Wardlow turned it around on MJF. That was one serious headshot and MJF sold it perfectly. Wardlow of course wins, and of course we’re now getting MJF VS Wardlow at Double or Nothing, and who knows how that goes. There is a very good chance MJF wins, though, with the dirtiest of ways to win, but I bet Vegas would go nuts if Wardlow won. Also great to see that I called the TNT Championship was being remodeled for Scorpio, I bet that thing will look awesome.
Great promo from the JAS, and wow, Jericho with another fireball just because that staffer wore a Moxley shirt. If this were sports entertainment, they would’ve mentioned Jericho getting fined a lot of money. Regal and Jericho were very good on commentary during Moxley & Kingston VS Private Party, which was a lot of fun and a pretty good sampler of what Anarchy in the Arena will look like. I don’t want it to be so chaotic because that’ll be hard for everyone to keep up with all the action, but it will surely be just brawling all over ringside and even in the ring, and who knows what we’ll see these teams do to each other.
Good promo vignette from Jade and Jay to hype up the rematch, but again, because it’s Jay again, I feel like Jade’s got this one. I did like that Velvet, though Heel, gave Ruby, a Face, advice on how to beat Statlander since Velvet is now Statlander’s enemy. Ruby had a good Face response, and Ruby VS Statlander on Rampage is going to be a great match. Great promo from the Hardys to hype up their match with the Bucks, no idea who wins that match, but I definitely see the winner going after the AEW World Tag titles. And while Rosa had a very good promo, they started her music a little early. Probably just them misreading her promo, but it also felt like they were playing her off, which is a bit rude to do to your AEW Women’s World Champion. But that aside, Rosa is surely retaining against Deeb.
Great segment from Hangman and Punk, and though Hangman purposefully danced around the issue, I’m pretty sure what he was getting at is Punk coming in and throwing off all the plans for the AEW originals, Hangman himself included. Punk also had a good counter saying he was the foundation of what AEW is even about. That match is going to be amazing, Hangman knocking Punk down technically means Punk is standing tall because he got in Hangman’s head. I would think Hangman retains the title and that strengthens his reign, probably so he’ll be real strong for Kenny Omega’s eventual return.
The ROH World Tag Team Championship match was great stuff, and I even liked that it ended up like it did because The United Empire shows up to further build towards Forbidden Door. FTR wants more tag titles, RPG Vice called out a lot of champions, and now it seems the Empire figures they’ll grab up titles, we could get a huge tag title match with this feud. The Triple Threat of JB, Starks and Swerve was great stuff, and between Swerve winning the match and Keith running off the other heavies, I have a feeling Keith & Swerve end up losing somehow. That might mean Jurassic Express finds a way to retain, maybe Team Taz wins, but who knows.
Great “double main event” from the Owen Hart Cup Semifinals, and we even got a good promo vignette to hype the matches up. Britt VS Storm was of course still affected by Hayter showing up, but I almost thought Hayter was going to accidently cost Britt. But no, Britt still wins, as expected, and she is paralleling Cole as they’re both finalists. Joe VS Kyle was awesome stuff, and especially with Joe selling the arm damage from last week. Joe winning was great, though, and that gives us a classic Face VS Heel showdown. I suppose it would be too early for Cole VS Kyle, possible dysfunction between them in AEW after doing that story in NXT, and Cole VS Joe will still be awesome. But with Lethal, Sonjay & Singh lurking, I bet Joe loses because of them and Cole wins, he and Britt will be an Owen Hart Cup winner power couple.
