Jon Moxley VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Orange Cassidy & Danhausen!

The Maniac is here in Chicago to open this wild night of Dynamite! It may be snowing outside but it is red hot already, will Moxley use that to keep his own hot streak going? Or will the Decoder have him figured out?

The bell rings and Yuta rushes in, but Mox dodges the dropkick. Yuta dodges the lariat and the two stand off. Fans rally, the two circle and tie up. Moxley wrenches, hammerlocks, headlocks, but Yuta powers out. Moxley runs Yuta over, and Moxley stares at Danhausen. Danhausen shrugs and Moxley circles with Yuta. Moxley gets an arm, wrenches to an elbow breaker, then wrenches to a wristlock. Yuta rolls, handsprings and arm-drags, then eggs Moxley on! Moxley circles with Yuta, they feel out a grapple, and Yuta waistlocks. Moxley switches, Yuta baits him in then leap frogs, slides under, and dropkicks!

Moxley bails out, is a bit frustrated, but then he stares at Freshly Squeezed. Yuta DIVES, but Moxley catches him for a SLEEPER HOLD! The ref reprimands, it wont’ count out there. Moxley back suplexes but Yuta lands on his feet! Yuta SHOTGUN dropkicks Moxley down, then gets him up and into the ring. Yuta springboards, jumps around, but misses the missile dropkick! Moxley drags Yuta up to X-PLEX! Yuta writhes and Moxley double guns as fans fire up. Danhausen feels Yuta’s pain as Moxley gets the legs and stomps Yuta in the gut! Moxley covers, TWO! Yuta CHOPS, Moxley CHOPS back!

Yuta CHOPS again, so Moxley CHOPS him out of the ring! Moxley paces, Yuta drags himself back in, and Moxley is right on him. Moxley reels Yuta in, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO! Moxley gets the leg, STF! Yuta endures, reaches outs, but Moxley pulls him back. Moxley gets the arms for a straitjacket modification, but Yuta gets his legs free to get the ropebreak! The ref counts, Moxley lets off at 4, and Yuta sits up to CHOP! Moxley withstands it to poke Yuta in the eye! Moxley puts Yuta up top, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again. Moxley climbs up, CLAWS Yuta’s back, then CLAWS him again. Moxley digs his fingers in, but Yuta throws body shots.

Yuta headbutts Moxley down, but Moxley gets under the leap. Moxley comes back, into a dropkick! Yuta dodges, atomic drops and ENZIGURIS Moxley! Yuta fires up, runs corner to corner, A-LIST LARIAT! Yuta goes up top, but Moxley bails right out! Yuta goes out to BOOT Moxley, then CLUBS away on him. Moxley knees low, throws headbutts of his own, then HEADLOCK DRIVER to the apron! Moxley drags Yuta up after those dirty deeds, and he puts Yuta back in. Moxley and Cassidy stare down, but Danhausen is there! Danhausen CURSES Moxley, and Yuta LEAPS!

Moxley squeezes tight, then spins Yuta around for a LARIAT!

Moxley hammers away with elbows on Yuta, then he drags Yuta up to the underhooks! PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

Yuta brought the fight to Moxley but Moxley still comes out on top! Undefeated in his return, still unhinged in his mindset, but Bryan Danielson appears again! The American Dragon stares Moxley down but also smiles. Bryan has a mic, and he says, “Do you guys wanna see us fight?” “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan says that for a long time, he wanted to see him and Moxley fight, too. Moxley was different, so Bryan wanted to see what he had. But since Moxley returned, this is a new Jon Moxley! Give it up for Moxley, everybody! Fans do cheer, and Bryan continues. “Deep inside of me, there’s always been a part of me that’s wanted to test you.”

Bryan was watching Moxley as AEW World Champion. And it doesn’t matter what anyone says, Moxley was the BEST AEW World Champion. And if Moxley had some support, Bryan thinks Moxley would still be world champion. That’s when Bryan realized that Moxley and Bryan shouldn’t be fighting against each other. They should be fighting together! Fans really like the sound of that! Bryan says everyone here loves AEW, obviously. But there is no reason why “some millennial cowboy” should be the world champion.

“There is NO reason why somebody dressed as a dinosaur should be an AEW World Tag Team Champion. There is NO reason why somebody who’s main contribution to society is creating a ‘vlog’ should be the TNT Champion.” Bryan says that he and Mox together could run AEW. Whatever they wanted! If Mox wanted to be world champion, he could be that with Bryan. They could be AEW World Tag Team Champions together! If they wanted to take some of those young guys, like Wheeler Yuta, who is coming out here with jokes like Cassidy & Danhausen, could be under their wing. Someone like Daniel Garcia! Then THEY could mentor him!

They could take someone like Lee Moriarty away from Matt Sydal & Dante Martin with their “high-flying bull crap,” and train the future of pro-wrestling, together. Bryan says even if fans don’t like Bryan, they like what he’s talking about. So Moxley, Bryan knows this is a lot right now, so he doesn’t have to answer right now. Just think about it. Think about the possibilities. Think about all the positive things they could do. Think about the greatness that they could create! And the legacy that Moxley could leave. Bryan offers a handshake, fans seem torn, but Moxley isn’t sure. Bryan knows this is a lot of pressure, so just think about it.

Bryan drops the mic, leaves the ring, and Moxley looks at the camera as if to say, “Is he serious?” If Bryan is serious, could he and Moxley become more than just a two man power trip, but a force of nature in AEW?

 

Brandi Rhodes is here!

Mrs. American Nightmare has the mic and says, “I just love every time I get to come back to this town. Everyone is so nice to me here in Cleveland- Or Chicago, whatever. It’s the same thing: snow, ice.” But then Dan Lambert interrupts, and fans are actually happy to see him. Lambert says “You’d think someone from a wrestling family would understand how bad it is for business when you start believing your own bullsh*t.” They may have given the Rhodes a reality show, but Brandi needs a reality check. So he’ll give it a shot!

Lambert gets in the ring to say Brandi can pretend that Cody earned a spot here, and pretend that Chief Brand Officer is a real title and not just something to stroke that massive ego. Brandi can even pretend her “Brandi from Da Block” accent when she gets all mad isn’t as fake as those bulldogs poppin’ outta her T-shirt right now. But she can’t pretend that she’s not getting booed out of the ring, even though she’s standing next to a “rich, angry, conservative, sexist, AEW hating old man” like him! He almost feels like a decent human standing next to her.

Brandi isn’t sure what Ethan’s laughing at. Everyone knows the only reason AEW got him was to get to Josh Alexander. But Dan, let’s keep this between him and her. What’s his beef with her? They should get to know each other. She looked into him, and after the last time he ran her down, he is doing good! Five-time Gym of the Year! Most champions on the team in history! He’s doing great. Fans stay “STFU!” and the Men of the Year encourage them. Brandi asks if they’re done. But things are going good, but not great for Lambert. Fans keep it up and she says she’ll just keeping going because she can do anything, just like she can in this company.

Brandi says Lambert that it is a little telling that his best fighter got knocked out by Jake Paul, and Amanda Nunez. Oh, too soon? That one must hurt. But her point is, Lambert should spend less time in AEW and more time with American Top Tits- Er, Team! Same thing, right? “Wow. All that charm and a quick wit as well. Cody’s a lucky man. But that begs the question: Don’t you think it’s time that your whole family goes Heel?” The only Face turn anyone will believe is from Brandi’s old job, where she was always turned face down. Brandi and Lambert talk trash off mic and then she SLAPS him!

Lambert says he had a feeling she’d be in a fighting mood tonight. And he’s not the only one who has slapping the sh*t outta her on his bucket list. But he has a few things to do here first, before going down in a “glorious fireball of cancel culture.” So he has a better idea. Here comes PAIGE VANZANT! She gets in the ring, Brandi rushes her but is RAMMED to the corner! The AEW Women’s Division rushes to stop this, but fans want to “Let Them Fight!” Brandi and Paige egg each other on, but American Top Team falls back for now. Will Mrs. American Nightmare make Paige regret signing up with Lambert?

 

Matt Hardy speaks.

“Private Party. I was very disappointed in your performance last Friday.” Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen failed to bring the AEW World Tag Team Championships home to the Andrade Hardy Family Office! But Sammy Guevara, Hardy knows you’re offering an open challenge for Rampage. Hardy wants that title! But in steps Andrade and he shakes Hardy’s hand. Andrade knows Private Party lost, and Hardy says he is furious. It was embarrassing! So this week, for the TNT Championship, it’ll be Isiah Kassidy taking on Sammy Guevara! Marq says he could beat Sammy! But he got beat, so Kassidy will redeem them!

Andrade says he doesn’t want any mistakes. Kassidy says he can take that title, then take Sammy’s girl! Fist bump from Jose. But Hardy asks Andrade about Darby Allin. Why isn’t he with them already? Andrade says Sting handles the business. Maybe he needs more money for the deal. Mas dinero. Money talks. Yes, it does. Andrade leaves, but will Sting and Darby show him it’s not always about the money? As for Hardy, he grabs Kassidy by the head and tells him, “Rampage! Do not fail me, Isiah! This is your chance to be a star! Bring home the TNT title to the AHFO!” Kassidy says he’s got this, but will the Spanish God still be golden?

 

The House of Black VS PAC & Penta El Zero M w/ Alex Abrahantes!

The Windy City just got much colder as Malakai Black & Brody King make their way out. Will Death Triangle #FadeToBlack? Or will the Bastard’s return signal the beginning of the end for the Kings of the Black Throne?

The teams sort out, and though wearing a blindfold, Pac starts against Malakai. Fans sing, “Ole~ ole ole ole~!

Adam Cole speaks.

“Brandon, turn the damn camera on. I am still undefeated in singles competition here in AEW. And my record, it reflects that. Because I swear to God, if I have to hear one more damn time that Orange Cassidy beat me, I will slap you in the mouth.” Cassidy didn’t beat Cole, that was a fluke! The record reflects that. Well, it was unsanctioned and therefore off the record… But Cole says that even with his undefeated streak, he still doesn’t get the respect he deserves. Cole is one of the best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet, and has been for years! Everyone will see a new side to Cole, an Adam Cole that takes what he wants.

So in two nights, Cole goes to Rampage and he will fight Evil Uno. After he hurts and beats Uno, the entire world will know exactly what Cole wants. Cole leaves, will he use the Dark Order to send a message to a certain millennial cowboy?

 

Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Ruby Soho!

The Native Beast wants to prove that the TBS Championship Tournament loss to The Runaway was a fluke and that no one is going to stop her from getting back to the gold. But is that really going to happen? Or will Ruby make history repeat itself with No Future?

Gunn Club gets a cameraman to follow them.

Billy says the cameras will wanna see this. They walk up behind Jungle Boy and say hey. Just reading the Jungle Book on your phone or something?

Jurassic Express runs Gunn Club off, but will they make Billy and the Ass Boys pay for all these ambushes?

 

AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

They’re in the great city of Chicago, but it’s time for some Cowboy You-Know-What! Schiavone introduces the AEW World Champion, Hangman Page! The pyro goes off for the top champ as he goes to the ring. Schiavone reminds us that next week, AEW Dynamite is in Atlantic City, and it will be a TEXAS DEATHMATCH for the AEW World Championship, Hangman Page VS Lance Archer! The Murderhawk Monster has certainly made himself known to Hangman, so what are Hangman’s thoughts on this match stipulation?

Hangman has the mic as fans chant “COWBOY SH*T!” and Hangman says he has been champion for 81 days! Yet he’s only gotten to defend it twice. Hangman says he started this year, pleading for challengers. Here he is, three weeks later, still waiting. Hangman has a five month old baby at home, throwing mashed peas all over the house, there’s a foot of snow outside and his flight back home has been cancelled. Yet, Archer wants the match next week to be a Texas Deathmatch. Hangman doesn’t really give a sh*t! He just needs SOMETHING, ANYTHING, and not next week! He wants it tonight, so if Archer is willing, he can get his sturdy ass out to the ring so Chicago can see a fight!

Dan Lambert returns and says he is surprised Hangman showed up here and didn’t just stay in Cleveland. This is the home of the Chicago Blackhawks, and Lambert figured a “soft ass cowboy” like Hangman would feel more comfortable back in a city like Cleveland, a place that cancelled their Indians. Hangman says he’s gonna shut Lambert up right here. Hangman doesn’t care about what Lambert was gonna say backstage- Jake the Snake Roberts tells the “little boy” to shut it. People are saying Hangman is acting different, looking over his shoulder. Is he having bad dreams? Maybe a nightmare, if you will?

Jake says he smells something. Is Hangman sweating? That must be fear! Archer then barges his way out and says he’ll shut Hangman up, “Let’s do this!” Archer storms to the ring but Hangman DIVES out onto him! The brawl is on at the ramp, Archer knees Hangman! Archer rushes Hangman but Hangman dodges Archer to send Archer into steel steps! But then Lambert SMACKS Hangman with a chair! Hangman doesn’t budge, and Lambert freaks out! Hangman puts Lambert in the ring, but Archer SMACKS Hangman! Hangman falls down, Archer sets up the steps, and he drags Hangman over. CHOKE SLAM onto the steps!!

Archer pushes Hangman off the steps, Jake the Snake knows that’s not enough for him. Archer gets Hangman up, inverted crucifix, BLACKOUT BOMB through the timekeeper’s table!! Lambert counts like it’s the match, and he reaches ten! Archer says next Wednesday, everything changes! The Murderhawk Monster will be the NEW AEW World Champion, and he doesn’t give a damn about what anyone thinks or wants! Will the Texas Deathmatch be the death of Hangman’s reign?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Santana and Ortiz. What you did last week by blatantly not tagging me in in our match versus 2point0 and Daniel Garcia was disrespectful to me, it was embarrassing to me, and it was unacceptable. And for what? Why? Because Eddie Kingston? Because you started in the business together? We started AEW together! What, does Eddie Kingston have some kinda hold over you? Some kinda influence? Nobody has more influence in this company than Chris Jericho! When it comes to AEW, I am more an influencer than Kylie Jenner is on Instagram!” Jericho just wants to hear why they did what they did.

So Jericho is asking- No, DEMANDING a full Inner Circle team meeting next week on Dynamite! And they all better show up, especially Santana & Ortiz. Attendance is mandatory! But will Le Champion being so tyrannical only bring about the end of the Inner Circle?

 

CM Punk VS MJF!

The pawns of The Pinnacle have been cleared out of the way, and now the Salt of the Earth has no choice but to face the Best in the World! Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman find a way to survive CM Punk in Chicago? Or will having homefield advantage guarantee Punk a victory?

AEW returns and CM Punk makes his entrance. MJF taunts Punk but Punk just flips him off! MJF wants after Punk but the ref keeps him back. Punk and MJF stare down from across the ring, the bell sounds, and fans are all fired up for this one. MJF snarls, but then he backs off as soon as Punk storms over. The ref keeps Punk back, MJF gets a cheap shot! MJF CLUBS Punk, stomps him, but Punk turns it around to CHOP, forearm and CHOP again! Punk fires off haymaker after haymaker, then he climbs up to rain down rights! But MJF slips away and wags his finger. So Punk kicks him low, then KICKS him to ropes!

MJF uses ropes as a defense but Punk jukes the ref to DECK MJF! MJF teeter-totters in the ropes, Punk DECKS him again! And repeat! And repeat! Punk is having fun hitting MJF over an dover like that, and then he DECKS MJF to the floor! Fans fire up as Punk stalks MJF around the way. Punk brings MJF up to CLUB him in the back. Fans fire up as Punk CHOPS MJF against the railing, and then stalks him to the corner. MJF throat chops back, then hops over the railing! MJF wants to run away but Punk chases after him! They go up the stairs, Punk runs MJF down and CLUBS him on the back!

Punk gets a drink from a fan to SMASH it on MJF’s head! He’s straightedge, after all. Punk stomps away on MJF, then he gives MJF an atomic drop onto railing! Punk ROCKS MJF with a right, and MJF tumbles into the seats! The ref is skipping the count in order to get these guys to ringside, so Punk headlocks and punches MJF all the way down the stairs and back to ringside. Punk double guns and Chicago fires up. The ref insists this get back in the ring so Punk drags MJF up and back in. Punk takes his time getting in, and he asks if the fans want some more. Fans do want more, and Punk stands MJF up to scoop and SLAM!

MJF writhes, Punk drags him up by his ear as fans chant, “One More Time!” Another scoop SLAM! Punk keeps on MJF’s ear, drags him back up and scoops again, for another SLAM! Fans still want “One More Time!” so Punk stands MJF up to scoop and SLAM again. Punk struts about, lounges on the top rope, and fans are loving it! Punk then hops up to the top rope, takes aim and- MJF rolls away. Punk hops down, runs corner to corner, but MJF dodges and Punk POSTS himself! The ref goes out to check on Punk as he clutches his arm. Punk says he’s okay to continue but MJF goes out after him.

MJF puts the arm on the timekeeper’s table, stands on it, and then drops a knee! Punk clutches the bad arm but MJF puts him in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

MJF drags Punk by his bad arm, makes lewd gestures with the arm, then BITES the finger! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off to taunt the fans, but Punk CHOPS and forearms back! Punk runs, but MJF clamps onto the bad arm for an ARMBAR DDT! Cover, TWO! MJF clamps onto the bad arm and hammerlocks it. MJF leans on the hold as he tells fans to shut up. Fans rally as Punk endures, and Punk fights up to throw back elbows. MJF ducks one to steal the Pepsi Twist! Cover, TWO! MJF mocks the straightedge X, then looms over Punk. MJF drags Punk up to wrap the bad arm around the ropes! The ref counts, MJF lets off at 4 with a rake of the eyes!

The ref reprimands, MJF ignores him to wrench the bad arm. MJF knuckle locks and twists the wrist, to STRAIGHT ARM LEVER SUPLEX! MJF CLUBS away on the bad arm, pushes Punk to a cover, TWO! MJF grows frustrated as Punk gets to ropes. MJF pulls the bad arm against the ropes, the ref counts, MJF lets off at 4. MJF taunts the fans again, then drags Punk up to put him on the top rope. AEW returns to single picture as MJF YANKS the bad arm. MJF CLUBS the bad arm at the elbow, then sits Punk back up. Fans boo, MJF climbs, and MJF knuckle locks the bad arm again. Punk elbows MJF but MJF keeps on the arm!

Punk fires off forearms, MJF hops down, Punk leaps for a CROSSBODY! Fans fire up as Punk gets back up and shakes out the bad arm, Punk blocks MJF’s punch to counter punch! And again, and again!

Wardlow didn’t save MJF but he still helped him! The Salt of the Earth stays unpinned and unsubmitted in AEW while ending Punk’s AEW undefeated streak! MJF smiles but Wardlow shakes his head. Replay shows another angle, and Wardlow managed to drop the diamond ring to MJF behind his back!! Is MJF the NEW Best in the World? Or does this only prove that MJF is nothing without his back-up?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome episode of AEW! I won’t go into detail but “card subject to change” happened here as THE Brian Kendrick had to be replaced in his match against Moxley. But at the same time, Moxley VS Yuta in a rematch from before was a great move. It was a great match, Moxley interacting with Cassidy and Danhausen was great stuff, but naturally Moxley still wins. Bryan Danielson appearing to offer him a team-up instead of a match was a really interesting move. I really would be intrigued to see Bryan and Mox as a Two Man Power Trip, but also as leaders of a faction of some great young talent like Garcia, Moriarty and a few other Elevation/Dark regulars.

I can’t believe we almost got Face Dan Lambert because of Brandi Rhodes just randomly being a Heel to the crowd. Lambert still goes for low hanging, sex joke fruit, but I do like that they’re setting up a female MMA VS Pro-Wrestler story. It probably won’t go all that well but at least they’re trying. And then Lambert is immediately Heel again as he continues to pal around with Archer and Jake the Snake. Archer brawling with Hangman and then destroying him was good stuff, and it definitely gives Hangman the go-home math advantage to next week’s Texas Deathmatch. Jake teasing some “if you will” Dusty Rhodes action makes me wonder if the stories will blend and we see Hangman interact with Cody at some point.

The Andrade Hardy Family Office has a good promo together, referencing the multiple stories they have going on, and it’s rather interesting Hardy puts Kassidy up against Sammy for the TNT Championship. I suppose Sammy is going to win since it’s Kassidy, but I was expecting either Hardy or Andrade to take that match instead. Maybe such match-ups happen for a bigger occasion, like Revolution in March. Also, I think AEW mis-advertised, their site said the FTW Championship was tonight but it’s instead for Rampage. But that does make Rampage bigger, with the FTW and TNT Championships both on the line.

Jericho wanting the Inner Circle to regroup is perhaps a sign they’re slowly going to break the group up. There’s a very good chance Santana & Ortiz argue with Jericho and Jake Hager takes Jericho’s side. Jericho & Hager VS Santana & Ortiz would make for a very good match that also helps get Proud ‘n’ Powerful going in the tag division. Gunn Club gets after Jungle Boy, Jurassic Express VS Gunn Club is of course coming. Adam Cole had a really good promo, and it’s very clear that him going after Evil Uno, we’re getting Super Kliq feuding with Dark Order and eventually Cole going for the world title.

The House of Black VS Death Triangle was a great tag match, but there’s another flaw of AEW’s to point out. Are they the House of Black, the Kings of the Black Throne or the Knights of the Black Throne? All three of those things were used in the entrance, the third one being in the lower third. They need to get that straightened out before Malakai & Brody go for the tag titles. Nyla VS Ruby was a great match that definitely built upon their TBS Championship Tournament match. Naturally, Nyla wins here, and I’m sure we’ll see a tiebreaker that will lead the winner to the TBS Championship, or even the AEW Women’s World Championship.

Then the main event was even more of an instant classic than I could’ve imagined. MJF cheats to get the false win, and it has been such a long time since any company has used a decision reversal. Things entered PPV level as they continued, and it was shocking to see MJF still find a way to win. Wardlow apparently isn’t pushed to the point of turning on MJF just yet, so they’re definitely saving that for when Wardlow wins the TNT Championship and refuses to give it to MJF. Wherever and whenever that moment happens, that crowd will explode seeing Wardlow clobber MJF. Wardlow could use that moment alone to become a top guy in AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/16/22)

Powerhouse gets Dark!

Published

AEW Dark 2

It’s a baker’s dozen for Universal Studios!

AEW Dark continues in Universal Studios, and “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs looks to send a message to Ricky Starks through his opponent tonight!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Ari Daivari VS Fuego Del Sol; Daivari wins.
  • Willow Nightingale VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Willow wins.
  • Serpentico w/ Luther VS Brock Anderson w/ Arn Anderson; Brock wins.
  • Abadon VS Mafiosa; Abadon wins.
  • Angelico VS Baliyan Akki; Angelico wins.
  • Emi Sakura VS Renee Michelle; Sakura wins.
  • Josh Woods VS Cobra; Cobra wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Charlette Renegade w/ Robyn Renegade; Skye wins.
  • Bear Country VS Axel Rico & Victor Iniestra; Bear Country wins.
  • Kayla Rossi w/ Diamond Sheik VS Avery Breaux; Rossi wins.
  • Cezar Bononi w/ The Wingmen VS Marcus Kross; Bononi wins.
  • Rohit Raju VS Invictus Khash; Raju wins.
  • “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Blake Christian; Hobbs wins.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Abadon back in action, though I’m pretty sure she’s gotten even scarier since she’s been away… A lot of singles match-ups, a lot of easily called match-ups, but that’s par for the course on Dark. A bit surprised they didn’t just team up the Renegade Sisters against Willow & Skye, but maybe those matches are still connected. And while All Heart will lose to Powerhouse, you can beat Blake Christian will get to shine against the bigger Will Hobbs.

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (8/15/22)

Minneapolis gets Elevated!

Published

AEW Elevation Coverage

It’s a Superbad return!

Penelope Ford returns to action in AEW as Dark: Elevation serves the leftovers from Dynamite’s Quake by the Lake!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling VS Travis Titan & Arik Cannon; Nese & Woods win.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS T.U.G Cooper, Drew System, Rylie Jackson & Adam Grace; The Dark Order wins.
  • Serena Deeb VS Sierra; Deeb wins.
  • Konosuke Takeshita VS Cezar Bononi; Konosuke wins.
  • Julia Hart VS Free-Range Kara; Julia wins.
  • Private Party VS JAH-C & JDX; Private Party wins.
  • Penelope Ford VS Heather Reckless; Ford wins.
  • The Acclaimed VS Justin Fowler & JT Energy; The Acclaimed win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida & ThunderStorm VS Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero; Shida & ThunderStorm win.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Penelope Ford is back in action. I wonder if Kip Sabian will make his in-ring return soon. Unless he wants to keep stalking Pac a little longer as the box man… Private Party is going to get a win as the warm-up for their AEW World Tag Team Championship match this Wednesday, and pretty much the entirety of The Dark Order is in action in that 8 Man Tag. Konosuke VS Bononi is going to be really good. Bononi is certainly the biggest opponent physically speaking for Konosuke to take on, so we’ll get to see how Konosuke handles that situation.
