Backstage interview with Keith Lee and Team Taz.
Everyone here has agreed to a no contact rule for this interview. Keith Lee VS Max Caster is this Friday on Rampage, but Ricky Starks says Keith must be part Irish. This is lucky timing because it saves Keith from an ass whooping! Now, Starks thought he’d be the bigger man letting Keith know how things work, but Keith decided to do things his way. That’s why Team Taz went and whooped him. Hobbs knows Keith knows about that spinebuster. So if Keith shows up again, the same thing happens! They will stomp him out! Oh, like when Keith knocked Starks out like a bitch? See y’all Friday. The Limitless One will not be told what to do, but will Starks make absolutely sure to follow through?

Regal tells Yuta to get a bit more seasoning, and then they’ll talk again. Is the Decoder looking to jump ship?
Backstage interview with FTR.
Tony Schiavone says the last time we saw Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, they fired Tully Blanchard! Cash says that didn’t come easy, but it’s something they’ve talked about for awhile. Tully was checked out. When they won the AEW World Tag Team Championships, Tully was laser focused. But after losing those titles, Tully seemed to lose focus. When you lose focus, you lose your job. Schiavone knows there aren’t too many who respect Tully more than FTR. But in walk the Young Bucks. Nick Jackson says, “Look at this. FTR and the Young Bucks, in the same room again.” Matt says talking about making changes, firing managers, maybe just fire your stylist and your barber, too.
But no matter what, they could get the best in the world and it won’t change anything. Because deep down, they’ll still be the second best team in AEW. Happy St. Patty’s Day, boys. Laters. Will FTR look to refocus and get revenge on the Bucks?
The Acclaimed speak.
Max Caster says, “Yo, listen. This Friday, main event of Rampage, it’s Platinum Max, the best wrestler alive, against Keith Lee. And they say you’re limitless, Lee? Well I’m no limits on the mic. I’m a no limits solider!” Bowens says Caster will beat Keith’s Cleveland Jr. lookin’ ass ALL over San Antonio! Because everyone loves the Acclaimed! But then Team Taz walk in. Starks says Caster has a big opportunity on Rampage. Starks wants them to know that it is their duty to do what Team Taz have tried to do. All these new guys coming in, trying to steal from “us,” put ’em down! Put ’em out!
But then Swerve walks in and confronts Starks. Starks doesn’t like people stealing spotlights, huh? Then what about Swerve main eventing Rampage, getting his first win in AEW, and turning Fridays into “Whose house?” “SEWRVE’S HOUSE!” And that’s real. Swerve heads out, but Caster says, “Isn’t that guy a rapper?” Will The Acclaimed do what Team Taz tells ’em? Or will Keith and Swerve be the ones telling everybody how things go?
The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!
Talk about Judas! Le Champion betrayed Santana & Ortiz all because they sided with Eddie Kingston! So now, Jericho has reimagined the Inner Circle with Daniel Garcia and 2Point0! Matt Lee gets the mic to say, “You guys love that song, don’t ya?! You guys love it! You love getting in on all the fun! Well y’know who you have to thank for that song? Y’know who allows you to sing it? This man right here, Chris Jericho.” Mike is saying right now, there’d be no Judas! No singalongs! No nothing! And that is why Chris Jericho is a better man than him.
Jeff Parker says that is also why Jericho deserves to be praised and idolized! Not only for Jericho’s contributions in this industry, but for his contributions as a human being! So without any further ado, the Influencer, The Big One, Chris Jericho! Jericho takes the mic and says, “Think about this. The earth has been around for four and a half BILLION years, and yet you are lucky enough to be alive during the Chris Jericho Era. How fortunate are you, right? You’re welcome for that.”
And for over 30 years, we’ve lived vicariously through Jericho as he takes us through five star classic matches, riveting promos, angles and stories we’ll never forget. Hell, Jericho even builds companies, including AEW! If there was no Jericho, there’d be no AEW! He helped build this company, carried it on his back in the first three months. No Jericho, no us, you’re welcome. But instead of praising Jericho, we under-minded him, insulted him on social media, it’s all very hurtful. We have the greatest total package in the history of this business, and we don’t appreciate him! We don’t, the roster doesn’t, the Inner Circle never did.
Sammy Guevara walked out, Santana & Ortiz disrespected him, and Eddie Kingston had the audacity to embarrass Jericho on PPV by making him tap out! Fans cheer for Eddie Kingston and Jericho says they can do that all they want, no one is coming out here ever again. Those guys didn’t appreciate Jericho, but this team does. That is why they are the Jericho Appreciation Society! They appreciate each other because they realized that they can’t relate to the rest of the roster. They aren’t like the rest of the roster. Those guys are all pro-wrestlers. A pro-wrestler has never been legendary, never been a millionaire. The only reason Jericho got there is because he’s a sports entertainer!
Jericho will say it again! He is a SPORTS ENTERTAINER! Daniel Garcia says he has to get this off his chest. If Jericho is going to stand here and call himself a Sports Entertainer… then Garcia will be one, too! He is Daniel Garcia, he is a SPORTS ENTERTAINER! The epitome of a sports entertainer, too! Jericho says Garcia is the Mask of the Red Death! More horrifying than anything Edgar Allen Poe could ever think of! And Garcia appreciates Jericho because a group on January 6th, 2019, “a group independent wrestlers were in a terrible car crash in Buffalo. One of them shattered his tibia, his fibula, they said he would never walk again, they said he’d never wrestle again.”
Jericho heard about this, and though he never met them, he donated thousands of dollars to their recover. And not only did that man recover from those injuries, he walked and returned to tis business. That was Daniel Garcia right here. Garcia appreciates Jericho. Then there’s 2point0. By the way, that’s a dumb name from bad creative, you’ll never hear it again. No made up names here in the JAS! Use your real names! Daniel Garcia, Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, and now these two will use their real names from now on! “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard, and “Cool Hand Ange” Angelo Parker!
Why do these two appreciate him? A year ago, Jericho got a call from former best friend Kevin (Steen/Owens), and he wanted some help for his good buddies who got fired. Could they be on Talk is Jericho to get a job? Jericho brought these two to his house, even though he’d never met them before, and at the end of that podcast, he saw these guys had passion and desire. And look what happened! AEW hires them, they’re here, that’s why they appreciate Jericho! And of course, the big man right here, the ride-or-die, Jake Hager! He’s had Jericho’s back since 2010! They’ve traveled the world together, broke bread together, and Hager even saved Jericho’s life in Dubai!
Hager is the one man Jericho can trust. Closest adviser, closest confidant, the hand of the king! And so, hand of the king, tell ’em who we are! “We are the J A S! And we beat up pro-wrestlers!” Jericho says there you have it. The newest reinvention of the last true genius in this business! And remember this date, 3/16/22! This is the day that the new era begins in AEW! The Era of the Sports Entertainer! This is the Jericho Appreciation Society, and that? That’s entertainment. Their mission statement has been delivered, who will be the first pro-wrestlers that they beat up?
Serena Deeb speaks.
“So look who decided to come out of hiding. Shida, welcome back. Last week you said the whole time you were in rehab in Japan, you thought about me, Serena Deeb. Oh my gosh, how flattering that is to hear. But to be honest, Shida, I didn’t think about you once. You have my undivided attention again. Remember what happened last time you walked down that path, Shida?! IF you think that you thought about me obsessively during your rehab, just imagine how much you’ll think about me when the Professor is responsible for ending your career!”
AEW TNT Championship: Scorpio Sky w/ Dan Lambert VS Wardlow!
The first Face of the Revolution meets the newest Face of the Revolution! Scorpio took this title off Sammy Guevara after taking advantage of, well, a lot. And speaking of which, Lambert’s wearing the spare belt! Paige VanZant and her husband, Austin Vanderford, are also part of the posse, will American Top Team play a factor again? Or will the Maestro of Mayhem play the swan song of Scorpio’s one week title reign?
The introductions are made, the title Scorpio wears is raised, and we see who will truly be the Face of TNT!
Fans rally for Wardlow as he stares down with Scorpio. They approach and Scorpio realizes the height difference as well as the fan support difference. They tie up, Scorpio headlocks, but Wardlow powers up and TOSSES Scorpio away! Scorpio get to a corner, Lambert coaches him, but Wardlow just waits on Scorpio. They circle, tie up and Scorpio KICKS and fires off hands! Scorpio even clinches and BITES Wardlow in the corner! The ref reprimands, Scorpio lets off, Wardlow RAMS Scorpio to the other corner!

The ref counts, Scorpio hops down to CHOP! But Wardlow just turns it around to CHOP and CHOP back! Wardlow seethes, hobbles a bit, but Scorpio rakes his eyes! Scorpio puts Wardlow in a corner, puts him in the ropes and CHOKES him! The ref counts, Scorpio lets off at 4, then waits on Wardlow. Scorpio KICKS Wardlow in the side, then paces to soak up the heat. Scorpio throws heavy body shots, then pulls on Wardlow’s beard to ROCK him with a haymaker. Scorpio keeps on Wardlow but Wardlow counter punches! Scorpio KICKS the bad leg! Wardlow falls over, Scorpio drops an elbow! Cover, ONE!!
Scorpio is upset but Lambert coaches him on. Scorpio scrapes his soles on Wardlow’s face, then digs a knee in the corner again. The ref counts, Scorpio lets off and soaks up more heat. Wardlow swipes at Lambert but Lambert tells him, “Up yours!” Scorpio fires haymakers in the corner to sit Wardlow back down. The ref counts, Scorpio lets off, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Scorpio talks trash, saying he’s still the Face of the Revolution. But Wardlow choke grips! Scorpio kicks the bad leg, fires off forearms, then catches his breath. Wardlow reverse the whip to clinch and OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!
Wardlow gets Scorpio back up, ANOTHER Belly2Belly! American Top Team is getting worried and Scorpio goes to the apron. Wardlow hurries over but into a HOTSHOT!

Wardlow scares him off with a glare, but Scorpio gets out to end the symphony. Wardlow goes out to get Scorpio up, and decides to keep this going! But then here comes Shawn Spears! The Chair Man has two chairs! Scorpio gets in the ring as Wardlow glares and dares Spears to do something. But Spears stays back, for MJF to attack from behind! MJF hides his slimy ass and Wardlow flounders into the ring! Scorpio rolls Wardlow up, and wins!
Winner: Scorpio Sky, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
And now Vanderford rains down forearms on Wardlow over nearly getting bombed earlier! MJF gets in and laughs as he has the Dynamite Diamond Ring on his pinkie. Scorpio drags Wardlow up for MJF, but Wardlow fights off Spears, Vanderford, and then has his eyes on MJF! MJF freaks out and runs, but Wardlow gets him by his pants! Wardlow reels MJF in, but Spears SMACKS Wardlow with the chair! And again! Vanderford locks on the sleeper!

MJF pays Lambert, this was all part of the plan! MJF still wants Wardlow to get back up so MJF can get the last shot in! Somehow Wardlow stands up, for the DIAMOND PUNCH! Fans boo bur MJF grins as he stands on Wardlow. MJF says this is what Wardlow had coming to him, but will Wardlow just return it on MJF tenfold?
Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling.
The AEW TBS Champion is on the cusp of a 30-0 undefeated streak. Alex Marvez wants to know- Sterling interrupts and he wants to know where Marvez’s green is on St. Patrick’s Day. This is preposterous! Isn’t Marvez worried about getting pinched? Though, perhaps that is a bit better than getting the Kiss of Doom from Jade. Speaking of, who is looking to be lucky number 30 with an opportunity? Jade says, “Opportunity? More like charity.” She’s done with this, and dares someone to step up to That Bitch Show. And Kiss of Doom! If they’re worth it. Who will take that gamble and go after Jade’s gold?
The Hardy Boyz VS Private Party!
Matt Hardy may have been betrayed by his proteges and kicked out of the faction he founded here, but Brother Nero came to his rescue! And now that the boys are reunited in AEW, will they teach Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy a thing or two about getting extreme?

But while the Hardys are celebrating, here comes Andrade El Idolo! He has Jose, The Bunny, the Butcher & The Blade right behind him, and they’re all going to the ring. Andrade starts taking off his suit jacket and he has his mercenaries flank the ring. The #AFO have the Hardys surrounded, but here come reinforcements! Darby Allin and STIIIIING! Darby gets in with his skateboard, Sting has his bat, so the AFO back off! Will El Idolo wait until things are in his favor to finish this with these relentless and extreme icons?
Backstage interview with Red Velvet.
Schiavone says for Rampage, The Chef will go 1v1 with someone she knows very well in Leyla Hirsch. Velvet knows Kris Statlander said Leyla changed, but Velvet still stuck up for her. Velvet had Leyla’s back as a friend. But now that Velvet’s seen what Leyla’s become, Velvet will put an end to it. Will it be a Chef’s Kiss that says good-bye to this friendship?
AEW Women’s World Championship Steel Cage Match: Britt Baker VS Thunder Rosa!
It was almost to the day that these two faced off in an Unsanctioned Lights Out instant classic. And while the Doctor stands tall on top of the AEW Women’s Division, she hasn’t exactly done it all on her own. Now that she’s locked inside the structure with La Mera Mera, will Britt even survive, let alone leave here still champion?
The cage awaits as Rosa makes her entrance with an all women’s mariachi band! The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Rosa finally gets the win she’s always wanted!
Fans are fired up already as Rosa and Britt circle. Britt tries to climb already, but Rosa yanks her down to fire off forearms! Britt hits back, Rosa whips and fans duel. Britt ducks and then climbs! Rosa yanks Britt back down to ROCK her with forearms! Britt ROCKS Rosa back, then hurries for the door! Rosa keeps her in, waistlocks, but Britt holds ropes. Rosa CLUBS Britt, Britt elbows back! Britt throws more shots, then chokes Rosa in the corner! Rosa pushes back, Britt throws more forearms. Britt whips to ropes, Rosa ducks and comes back to KICK and LARIAT! Fans fire up as Rosa looms over Britt.
Rosa stomps Britt, says this is HER house, then RAMS Britt into steel! Fans fire up with Rosa and are dueling again. Rosa clubs Britt, drags her up, and she punches Britt right on the forehead. Rosa fires more shots, then dropkicks Britt down! Rosa drags Britt up, pushes her into steel again, and then DIGS her forehead into the steel! Rosa jabs away at the wound then GRATES Britt’s face! Rosa wants this to look just like that Lights Out Match! Fans sing, “F her up, Rosa, F her up!” Rosa motorcycle stretches Britt, then puts her in a corner. Rosa rains down more punches, and fans count all the way to 10!
Rosa brings Britt around, scoops and SLAMS Britt, then looms over her. Britt throws body shots and shoves Rosa away, but Rosa stalks Britt. Rosa drags Britt up, throws more shots, and Britt flounders. Rosa puts Britt in the gap and dribbles Britt’s face off the steel! Fans fire up as Rosa reels Britt in. Britt RAMS Rosa into steel, and then again! Britt gets back in the ring and the ref checks the bloody wound. Britt won’t let that stop her, since it didn’t stop her last year. Rosa has some blood now, but she’s getting up again as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Britt drags Rosa up, has her against ropes, and she digs knuckles into Rosa’s forehead! Britt throws haymakers, then forearms! Britt SLAPS Rosa, says SHE is champion, but Rosa pushes her away,. So Britt SLAMS Rosa into the mat, then drags her up for cravat knee strikes! Britt ROCKS Rosa, says, “D, M, D,” then goes back to Rosa. Rosa RAMS into Britt but Britt CLUBS her down! Britt has Rosa on ropes, digs her boots in, but lets off as Rosa refuses to give up. Britt has Rosa in a corner, taunts the fans that this is their hometown hero, and Britt stomps away! Britt drags Rosa up, ROCKS her, then RAMS her into steel!
Britt soaks up the cheers and jeers, then slaps Rosa around. Britt CLUBS Rosa, brings her up, and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Britt CLUBS away on Rosa, then drags her up again. Britt FISHERMAN SCREWS, then covers, TWO! Rosa pounds the mat, trying to get back up. Britt goes out to look under the ring. Dynamite returns to single picture as Britt finds some chairs and slides them into the ring! And even more chairs! Rosa kicks the chairs back at Britt but Britt flips her off. Britt puts more chairs in the ring, and even more chairs! Britt gets in, holds up a chair, but Rosa avoids the smack!
Rosa rallies with LARIATS! And then she SMACKS Britt on the back! And again! Britt gets up as Rosa roars, STUNNER! Oh hell yeah~! Rosa stomps in the corner, runs corner to corner, A-LIST LARIAT! Then SWINGING METEORA! Fans fire up with Rosa as she goes corner to corner to HESITATION DROPKICK! Rosa drags Britt out, high stacks, TWO! Rosa digs her nails into the wound but Britt hits Rosa back! Rosa scoops, Britt slips off but Rosa elbows her away. Rosa waistlocks but Britt elbows out hard. Britt aims but Rosa dodges and the SUPERKICK hits the ref! Britt is shocked, Rosa waistlocks but ends up RAMMING Britt into the ref!
The ref takes a tumble while Rosa rolls Britt! Rosa would’ve won by now! Rosa lets Britt go to scoop Britt for a FIRE THUNDER DRIVER!! But again, no ref to count this pin! Rosa would’ve won twice over! This feels too much like Revolution! Rosa drags Britt to a drop zone, then places a chair on her! Rosa goes up and fans fire up! But Britt gets up to SMACK Rosa! And again! And again! Rosa is stuck up top, so Britt hurries to move the chair pile to this corner. Britt CLUBS Rosa to keep her in place while she finishes moving furniture around. Britt climbs, Alabama lifts Rosa, FULL METAL AIR RAID CRASH!!!
Britt shouts to the back to get another ref! Here comes Aubrey! She hurries up and inside to count, TWO!?!? Rosa survives and Britt can’t believe it! San Antonio can’t believe it! Rosa is up and she’s throwing hands! Britt gives them back and fans say, “This is Awesome!” Britt argues with Aubrey but now’s not the time! Rosa hurries to a corner, Britt storms over to stomp her! Britt gets a chair, sits it in front of Rosa, and then another. Britt arranges a chair square, then she clubs away on Rosa! Fans duel but there are way more fans for Rosa. Britt puts Rosa up top, adds more chairs to the square, and has a pyramid!
Britt JAMS Rosa with a chair, then adds that to the mess. Britt climbs up, fans are going nuts already, but Rosa throws elbows on Britt! Rosa turns things around on Britt, but they’re brawling up top! Rosa HEADBUTTS Britt! And then SMACKS her off the cage, and Britt falls on the chair tower! Rosa hurries to cover, TWO!?!? How did Britt survive?! Britt SUPERKICKS!! Both women flounder, and Britt gets out of the ring. Britt finds an ace in the hole! The black bag returns, and she SMACKS Rosa around with it first! Then Britt sprinkles out the THUMBTACKS! Britt drags Rosa over, but Rosa wrenches out to kick and reel Britt in!
Britt fights the bomb, to back drop Rosa onto the tacks! Roll up, TWO!! Rosa gets free, but Britt wants the arms! And she had the glove tucked away in her boot! Britt puts the glove on, but Rosa BITES the hand!! Britt CLUBS Rosa, switches sides, but Rosa grabs Britt’s other hand to SLAM it on the tacks!! Britt clutches her left hand, Rosa runs in to kick and POWERBOMB Britt on the tacks! Fans are thunderous as Rosa sees Britt go out. Britt gets one more chair to SMACK Rosa! Rosa sees Britt get in the ring and fans are going nuts for “A E DUB!” Britt haymakers, Rosa kicks low! Rosa reels Britt in, FIRE THUNDER DRIVER on the tacks!! Cover, ROSA WINS!!
Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall (NEW AEW Women’s World Champion)
The literal blood, sweat and tears have all been worth it! La Mera Mera is finally champion! The confetti flies as Rosa holds the gold, and Dustin Rhodes gets in the ring to celebrate with her. Britt’s reign is finally over, what new heights will Rosa take this title to now that she rightfully has it?
What an awesome night for AEW! We got a great opener with that Six Man Tag, all the champions against Not Undisputed Era. It makes sense for Cole, Fish & O’Reilly to win, they’ll use this to argue they get title shots before Double or Nothing. The Bucks spark things with FTR, so that’s going to be a good feud that builds those teams up on the road to DoN 2022, also. We got good stuff out of Team Taz interacting with Keith Lee, the Acclaimed and Swerve. Pretty sure Keith beats Caster, and then Team Taz goes after Keith, and maybe Swerve backs Keith up. I don’t know if Keith and Swerve wanna team up so soon in AEW, but they’d make a great combo.
Moxley & Bryan continue to make a great combo, and of course they win over Chuckie T & Wheeler Yuta, but I love that Yuta showed guts standing up to Regal. I do hope Yuta is the first young star to join up with that faction, especially with the subplot of Trent not liking Yuta that much. Garcia is clearly dedicated to the Jericho Appreciation Society so he’s not joining up, and Lee Moriarty doesn’t get enough screen time anywhere in AEW so who knows about him. Speaking of, the JAS had a good group segment. Those stories Jericho had about each member almost made it like they were Faces, but then they went Heel by using the dreaded “sports entertainment.” Can’t wait to see how they play up that aspect in their feuds.
Serena Deeb had a good promo to respond to Shida, but this is already feeling like the problems AEW had with the TBS Championship where it was way too much build and not enough just getting to business. Deeb VS Shida should just happen next week and give us a killer match. Great promo from Red Velvet, too, and same there. I hope we just get Velvet VS Hirsch sooner rather than later. Jade and Sterling had a good promo, too, I can’t wait to see who they put up against her. I feel like 30 being a big number, it should be a big name. Maybe it should be Nyla Rose in Jade’s toughest match yet, so that Jade’s 30th feels really big.
The TNT Championship match was great stuff, even with it being clear that Wardlow was gonna get screwed out. MJF got everyone involved, even American Top Team. The only one not involved is Ethan Page and he’s Scorpio’s tag partner. Scorpio stays champion, he can take on anyone, and obviously we’re getting MJF VS Wardlow. The Hardys had a great match with Private Party, and of course the Hardys win. And of course Andrade and the faction go out to try and go after them, but then Darby & Sting stop that. That 8 Man is coming, maybe even more 2v2 matches like Hardys VS Butcher & Blade, who knows how it ends.
And then we got an awesome cage match. They took full advantage of everything, including the gap between ring and cage to bring out all the things that made their Unsanctioned Match last year so amazing. But Britt should’ve known better, because those things led her to losing that match, too. A ref bump was also great, and Aubrey being the replacement definitely plays into Britt’s old conspiracy theory. But how awesome for Rosa to win. Britt had a great run, to be sure, but Rosa’s going to be a great champion in her own right. Double or Nothing is going to be a great night for her, no matter who she defends against.
My Score: 9/10

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry VS Matt Hardy w/ Ethan Page!
The Young Pillars of AEW are all chasing Maxwell Jacob Friedman and the AEW World Championship, but that means someone has to become #1 contender. Will everyone be living the Jungle Life here in St. Louis? Or will V1 get it down for The Firm?
The bell rings, Hardy and JB shake hands, though Ethan is annoyed by that. Fans duel between “JUNGLE BOY!” and “DELETE!” The “DELETE!” starts to win out, and JB ties up with Hardy.

JB then builds speed, but Ethan stands in the way! Fans boo but Hardy tells All Ego that it’s okay. But then JB DIVES! Hardy catches him! SIDE EFFECT to the floor!
Fans fire up and Ethan sees Hardy was right, mostly. Darby Allin is watching backstage, keeping his eyes on fellow Young Pillar. We also see Sammy Guevara and wife, Tay Melo, are watching, but also kissing, on the couch. Hardy gets in the ring, the ref checks him, and Ethan takes advantage by TOSSING JB over the barriers! Fans boo but All Ego gets away with things. Hardy wonders what happened, fans rally up for JB while he slowly sits up. Hardy goes out after JB but JB ROCKS Hardy with haymaker after haymaker! JB them hops up onto the barriers to AX HANDLE Hardy down!
Fans fire up with JB as he CLUBS Hardy and puts him in the ring. JB has Hardy on the apron, brings him up, but hardy throws body shots. Hardy shoves JB but JB ROCKS Hardy! Hardy ROCKS JB back! The two brawl on the apron, haymaker for haymaker and forearm for forearm! They go back and forth, fans duel, and it turns into a hockey fight! Hardy wobbles and staggers, JB runs in, but into a SIDE EFFECT to the apron! Fans fire up and Ethan coaches Hardy up. “DELETE! DELETE!” Hardy staggers up and fetches JB while Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Hardy RAMS JB into the apron, stalks him around the way, CLUBS him on the back, and then SMACKS him off the apron. Hardy then pushes JB into the ring, crawls to a cover, TWO! JB is hanging tough but Hardy soaks up the cheers and jeers. Hardy bumps JB off buckles, again and again and again, and on all levels! Hardy finally lets off and he leads the fans in saying, “DELETE! DELETE!” But JB kicks back from below! Hardy grabs the legs, to YANK JB into a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! JB is still in this, but Hardy drags him up. JB throws body shots, Hardy throws haymakers, they go back and forth again!
Hardy CLUBS away on JB, then grabs the legs. JB is in the ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! JB sputters, Hardy covers, TWO! Hardy looms over JB, drags him back up, and shoves him to ropes to CLUB him on the back! Hardy then stands on JB’s back and uses the ropes to add pressure. The ref reprimands, Hardy lets off, and Hardy brings JB back up. Hardy puts JB through the ropes now to bend him back against them! The ref counts, Hardy lets off at 4, and the ref warns Hardy. Hardy apologizes and Dynamite returns to single picture. Hardy shoves JB to ropes again, to CLUB him on the back again!
Hardy eggs JB on but fans rally up. Hardy shoves JB, COMEBACKER from JB! Fans fire up again as JB and Hardy rise up. Hardy swings but into counter punches! JB runs, but Hardy CLOBBERS him!

Winner: “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, by pinfall
Darby seems worried, Sammy is being fed snacks by Tay, because JB is in pole position! But wait, here comes MJF! The AEW World Champion has the mic and fans are torn as he kisses his Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF has his music cut, and he continues towards the ring. MJF tells them, “I know you people aren’t very bright around these parts, but I run the show around here, so shut your mouths.” MJF then tells JB that he didn’t appreciate JB ruining the Re-Bar-Mitzvah. On the sly, kind of a Kanye move on JB’s part. MJF isn’t sure why the fans are booing, though, they’re from St. Louis! Not exactly forward thinkers around here.
But MJF wants to tell JB this. “There was one thing you said that really stuck to my craw. You said that after our match at Double or Nothing 2020, that our career paths were very different. You had the audacity to say that I had it easy? Really? Okay. You had the audacity to say that I got to waltz away up to the top of the card.” Fans boo because they agree with JB. But MJF says JB “had the audacity to say this place was The MJF Show. And let me tell you something.” Fans tell MJF to STFU but he just says, “No. And guess what, Jack. You’re right! My job’s a joke, dude! I barely wrestle, I barely break a sweat, I get to come out here and I get to absolutely obliterate these losers.
“I waltz to the back, I collect a fat check, I get on my fat Learjet back home, the most magical place in the world, known as Long Island, New York. Which we will be going to next week, tickets still available, AEWTIX.com! Don’t miss it, baby! And then there’s your career after our match, Jack. Let’s be honest, it’s been kind of mid. But I’ll give you credit, I’ll give you credit. You worked your ass off. You scratched and you clawed your way back up the ladder here in AEW by having standout match after standout match, leaving blood, sweat and tears in this ring for these fans.” Fans cheer that because it’s true.
MJF says he’s honest about that. But he doesn’t recall the fans ever saying thanks. Fans chant it now, “Thank You, Jack!” Too late, St. Louis. And MJF doesn’t remember JB being rewarded with that much TV time, either. So y’know what? JB has every right to be mad. But here’s the problem: JB has no right to be made at MJF. JB can’t even be mad at AEW. The only person JB should be mad at is himself. Allow MJF to explain. “After our match at Double or Nothing 2020, when we stole the show, when we went to war in 95 degree weather in Jacksonville, Florida, all to prove we were the future of this sport…
“I walked to the back and I had a foreign funny feeling for the first time in my career. I felt like I had just met my equal inside this ring. For the first time in my career, I had felt like I’d met the man I would be waging war with for the rest of my life. For the first time, I met a man inside this ring that I respected. So I swallowed my pride, I found you in the back that night, and I shook your hand. Do you remember what I said to you that night? I gave you very pertinent advice, Jack. Do you remember what I said?” JB nods and gets a mic of his own.
“Let me see if I can remember the advice that I got from the great MJF. What did you say to me? You told me I had all the skills, and all the potential in the world, blah blah blah. But what did you say? ‘Nice guys always finish last.’ And you told me that if I ever wanted to be as big and successful as you, what’d I have to do? I had to ditch all of my friends and not care about anybody but myself. Is that right? Is that what you told me?” MJF says that is literally what he told JB. And what’d JB do? He continued to hang out with Marko Stunted Growth, Dino Douche, and to make things even worse, Christian Cage! Great call there, by the way.
And all those guys were holding JB back. By the way, don’t think Hook will be any different. JB could’ve listened to MJF, followed him to the top, and they could’ve ran this place. JB could’ve been the world champ by now! This place could’ve been not just the MJF Show, but the Jack Perry Show. But no, JB had to be the good guy for these people? Really? The fans cheer but MJF says the fans might cheer him, but where has it gotten JB? Where has being a good guy gotten him? Three years later, and MJF is the best pro-wrestler in the world! The man with the grandest prize of them all, he is the AEW World Champion!
And Jack…? He’s still just “Jungle Boy.” JB says if he’s being honest, a long, long time ago, he thought that maybe, somehow, someway, JB and MJF were gonna be friends. And to be very honest, in a lot of ways, JB wishes he was more like MJF. He wishes he could talk like MJF. He wishes he had the confidence that MJF has. He wishes that he didn’t care about anyone else but himself. He wishes that he didn’t care about lying and stabbing people in the back to get what he wanted! He wishes that he didn’t care about being the most selfish, narcissistic piece of SH*T in this entire place! Fans cheer the biting sarcasm.
MJF tells the fans to shut up about the POS. But JB says all that ain’t him. If his road to the top is harder than MJF’s because of that, then so be it! JB does it his way! And when JB beats MJF and becomes AEW World Champion, at least JB won’t wake up alone every day and hate what he sees in the mirror. MJF scowls but then laughs. That was really good! Give it up for Jungle Boy! That was actually really good. Congrats, it only took JB four years to learn how to talk! But now listen to MJF. JB is right, there is one thing that JB said that is right. At one point, maybe, just maybe, they could’ve been friends. Partners, even.
“But not anymore, man. Because you turned out to be a massive disappointment. Because you have turned out to be no different than everybody here and everyone watching at home. You’re weak, Jack. Weak in the body, weak in the mind, weak in the soul, weak in the heart, and by the way, I pulled aside that hot piece of ass girlfriend of yours, Anna Jay… And you know what she told me, Jackie Boy? She told me you’re weak between the knees!” JB TACKLES MJF!! JB rains down fists and fans fire up! MJF CLAWS JB’s face! Fans boo but MJF stomps JB into a corner. MJF whips but JB reverses and MJF hits buckle! JB stomps away on MJF now!
Fans are thunderous and JB drags MJF up. MJF whips, but the COMEBACKER hits! JB is all fired up as he stands over MJF, then he stands him up to run and- NO, MJF bails out! Fans boo as the Devil of AEW runs away from Jack Perry. MJF says he’s still champion, and Jack is just Jungle Boy! But will AEW soon be living that Jungle Life?
Alex Marvez is backstage with Kenny Omega and Don Callis.
They’re in the trainer’s room as Omega gets his arm checked. Callis sees Marvez and says to clear the air, there’s drama with everything from last week. Omega knows Callis. Well, okay, given that, it is fair. Callis was the one who grabbed Hangman, Hangman is strong, he broke free and Callis fell over. He feels the fool, but he accepts the fault. But then Callis’ question to Omega is, why would Omega automatically think his “friend” (complete with air quote fingers) was the one who attacked Callis? What is it about their friendship? Well, Hangman’s pushed things before. But Callis says there’s no time to think about that!
Omega is coming off what is perhaps the greatest match in Dynamite history last week, and he’ll do it again tonight against Jeff Cobb. Callis wants Omega to focus on the match while Callis takes care of this drama with Hangman. Callis will apologize! Callis heads off, but will his apology go over well? Will the Best Bout Machine be able to focus on giving Cobb his best?
Matt Menard & Angelo Parker are out on the town with The Acclaimed!
Daddy Magic says, “Here we are! We are going to have a night on the town. We hired a camera guy to document the whole thing.” We’re getting a montage already of the good times Menard, Parker, Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn have. They rented a private suite for the St. Louis Blues game! And they have giant scissors! Get it? And this is all on Chris Jericho’s dime! Billy says that means they’re setting themselves up. For what, a good time? YEAH~! They enjoy the game, they get shakes, they get steaks, and the JAS appreciates the Acclaimed. Whatever they want, on the house! But how will the night end?
So it comes down to this: are you in or are you out? Bowens says they will make a decision next Wednesday. Just tell The Ocho thanks, salutations, and see you soon. Menard thinks it went well, and Parker sees the bill. He hopes this goes well…
Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Dalton Castle & The Boys!
Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta have been ripping into whoever gets in the ring with them, claiming it is all business. Will the Peacock and the Tate Twins think it’s just business here tonight? Or will the BCC start to take over the AEW and ROH Trios Divisions?
OH NO! The BCC doesn’t even wait for their entrance, they attack Castle & The Boys from behind! Fans fire up as Moxley RAMS Castle into steel steps! Yuta does the same to Brent Tate! Claudio throws Brandon Tate into railing! The BCC just mugs the former ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions, and then Claudio puts Brandon in the ring. The bell rings, Castle RAMS Moxley! Moxley hits back, but Claudio UPEPRCUTS Brandon! Claudio puts Brandon up top to TOSS across the way! Yuta still rains down fists on Brent! Claudio CLOBBERS Brandon, kicks him around, and looms over him.
Fans boo as Moxley chokes out Castle while Claudio deadlift CHOKE SLAMS Brandon! And then the arms are tucked, for the RICOLA BOMB!! Cover, the BCC wins!
Winners: The Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall
The Peacock and Tates never stood a chance! The BCC celebrate, have their hands raised, and then Claudio taunts Brandon by doing push-ups because he hasn’t even broken a sweat. But will the BCC continue to dominate even through the Supercard of Honor this Friday?
Backstage interview with Hangman Page.
Marvez is with the Cowboy now and asks him about last week. Hangman rode with one of the Young Bucks in the ambulance to the hospital, so first and foremost, how are they doing? Hangman says they’ve been better. Nick has a separated shoulder, Matt has a partial bicep tear. But they’re going to heal. Then second question: who did this? Is Marvez kidding? The Blackpool guys, the BBC or whatever. Wait, who invited Callis in here? Callis says he deserves that, but after grabbing the wrist, falling over, he’s very embarrassed. But that’s okay, Callis said he will make this right. Callis is sorry, he shouldn’t have gotten in between Hangman and Omega.
Hangman is a great talent, so he is welcome to come around, and Callis sincerely apologizes. Really? But then the BCC attacks Hangman! Callis is stunned but still holding out his hand as the BCC stomp away! Callis says hello, and then Moxley DECKS him! Claudio takes Callis’ sunglasses. Yuta says he looks good. The BCC then head off, and Callis sits up, his eyebrow busted open! What is to become of Omega’s focus now with all this and his match up next?
IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship: Kenny Omega VS Jeff Cobb!
The Cleaner won this title off Will Ospreay at WrestleKingdom 17 back in January, but the Imperial Unit claims Omega’s been ducking him. Will Cobb’s return to stateside help him bring this title back to NJPW and the United Empire? Or will he not be able to stop the God of Pro-Wrestling?
Backstage, Tony Schiavone asks Omega about what happened to Callis & Hangman. What? Omega didn’t even know! And now he has this title match… Omega says he has to focus on that. The long introduction is trimmed down, the belt is raised, and we see if Omega keeps his reign going past three months!
Fans fire up with the bell and chant for “KENNY! KENNY!” Cobb tells Omega there’s no more running, and the two circle. They tie up, Cobb puts Omega on the ropes, but the ref counts. Cobb lets off, and aims his hang loose a la Omega’s finger gun. Omega shrugs that off, shoots in to waistlock then headlock. Cobb powers up and carries Omega but Omega holds on. Cobb powers out, they RAM shoulders, but neither man falls! Omega sighs and dusts himself off. Omega runs, RAMS Cobb, but Cobb is solid! Omega runs, ducks the lariat, but Cobb is too big to scoop!

The Gunns speak.
Austin tells FTR, “There’s no doubt that you guys are one of the best tag teams we’ll ever see in this generation. The sad thing about it is, it took you 19 years to get to that point. It took me and Colten two.” Colten says they’ve already held the AEW World Tag Team Championships as many times as FTR have. The Gunns have busted their asses for these titles, and showed up week after week. Meanwhile, FTR took time off to bitch and moan and politic for a title shot. And these guys are heroes to fans? FTR, look deep into their eyes when the Gunns tell you this. “You used to be our heroes. Then we met you. Now we hate you. And we do not respect you.”
“We’ve respected one person our whole lives, that’s our father. And you saw what we did to him.” “What the hell do you think we’re going to do to you?” Next week, AEW Careers VS AEW Titles. And this time, FTR’s tagline will make sense. Because it’ll be #TopGuysOut of the company. Will the Gunns prove they’re not just Ass Boys? Will they prove they’re worthy champions?

The Kentucky Gentleman & #JustTrent help Cassidy hold on, cheating the cheaters out of this one! And of course, they HUG!! You GOT to give the people what they want! But will Cassidy continue to give the people top tier title matches like this?
Jade Cargill speaks.
The undefeated AEW TBS Champion stands with Leila Grey, the beat-up Mark Sterling, and Mark’s new assistant. “This Taya girl is a huge problem here at AEW. Not only did we serve her a Cease & Desist, she ignored it!” Leila echoes that Taya ignored it, and Jade shouts, “But not just that! She used MY move, the Jaded, on MY Baddie, but not just that, but on my lawyer! This is truly an outrage!” Leila echoes, “Outrage.” Sterling says it is outrageous that Taya broke Sterling’s nose. But that’s why this week, he brought his assistant and processor.
They know Taya is set for another match on Rampage, and if she uses the Jaded, the chicken wing facebuster, they will send the official court order and SUE her! Ow, his nose… Jade says Taya thinks she’s the only goddess. But understand this: Jade is THE Goddess here in AEW! Because she’s #ThatBitch. Now, Sterling, go get the job done. Will La Wera Loca listen to any of this? Or will Rampage be another outrage?
Juice Robinson speaks.
“Friday night, on Rampage, Rock Hard Juice Robinson against Action Andretti. It’s not gonna be the wrestling match you signed up for, Action. You’re in a fight against somebody who’s real mad. Who’s got tunnel vision on right now for Ricky Starks! Every punch is gonna be for Ricky Starks. You’re gonna be feeling it, Action. You do yourself a favor, Ricky Starks, pull up a chair and you watch the example I make out of Action Andretti. And you need to know that that’s just a small pinprick of the ass kicking that I’m gonna give you in New York City!” The Booster is fired up, but will he be ready for Action?
Ruby Soho w/ The Outcasts VS Willow Nightingale!
The Runaway ran away from all the good will she had built up in AEW, all because she wasn’t number one. She ran back to what was familiar in some old friends who’d been where she’s been, not caring what her new friends thought about that. Will Willow show Ruby that it’s better to be sweet than sour? Or will Ruby show Willow there’s No Future for goodie two shoes?
The bell rings and Ruby bails out. Fans boo but Ruby just swaggers around as she regroups with Saraya & Storm. Saraya has the ref keep Willow back, but fans rally behind Willow. Willow herself looks conflicted since she thought Ruby was better than this. Ruby and Willow tie up, go around, and Willow puts Ruby in the corner. Ruby wants Willow off her, and the ref has Willow back away. Ruby goes out to the apron to talk with Saraya & Storm, but Willow drags her back in! Fans fire up and Willow starts to tell Ruby off, but Ruby SLAPS her! Willow scowls, but Ruby stomps the foot, wrenches, but Willow blocks No Future!
Willow stands Ruby up but Ruby kicks low. Ruby reels Willow in but Willow shoves her away. Ruby rebounds, tilt-o-whirls, but Willow blocks that! Willow swings Ruby for a SIDEWALK SLAM! And then a RUNNING SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up as Willow brings Ruby up. Willow scoops and SLAMS, and she scowls as she scoops and SLAMS again! And then again! And then again! Willow’s rage is bubbling up, and she CHOPS Ruby in a corner! Willow bumps Ruby off buckles, CHOPS again, and the Outcasts protest. Willow fires off on Ruby, the ref has her back off, and Ruby flounders away.
Fans rally behind Willow, but then Ruby asks for mercy. She wants to make up, but then she YANKS Willow into ropes! Ruby CHOKES Willow on the ropes, the ref counts, and Ruby lets off. Ruby and the ref argue, Saraya grabs Willow to fire off knees! Fans boo but Saraya scurries away. Willow staggers into a ROUNDHOUSE! Ruby smirks and fist bumps her buddies. Ruby KICKS Willow in the side, brings her around, and reels her in. Ruby snap suplexes Willow, covers, TWO! Ruby gets in Willow’s face and smothers her! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and Ruby CHOKES Willow on the ropes again! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Ruby CHOKES Willow again, mockingly saying they’re best friends. Ruby CLUBS Willow, argues with the ref, and Storm CHOKES Willow! Storm scurries away, and Ruby puts Willow in a corner. Ruby CHOPS Willow, but Willow comes back with body shots! Ruby CLAWS Willow’s face to put her back in the corner. And Ruby CHOPS again! Ruby stalks Willow to another corner, stands her up, and puts some stank on the- NO, Willow blocks the chop to CHOP back! And again! And again! Ruby pulls hair to throw Willow down! The ref reprimands but the damage is done. Ruby catches her breath and clutches her stinging chest.
Ruby kicks Willow around, but Willow just scowls. Willow throws body shots but Ruby CLUBS her on the back. Ruby drags Willow up, ROCKS her, and then taunts her. Willow ROCKS Ruby! Ruby ROCKS Willow! Ruby eggs Willow on, they fire off forearms back and forth, and then Willow fireman’s carries! Ruby CLAWS Willow’s face to get free! Then Ruby throws Willow down by her hair again! Cover, ONE!! Ruby is furious and she clamps on a chinlock. Ruby squeezes tight and brings Willow down to the mat. Saraya tells fans to shut up as they’re rallying for Willow. Willow fights up but Ruby throws her down by her hair again!
Ruby puts Willow on the ropes and CHOKES her again! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya goes after Willow again! But Willow slips free to ROCK Saraya, and POST her! Saraya falls, Storm hurries to help her. Ruby whips, Willow reverses and then runs in, to back body block and clothesline in the corner! Snapmare and BOOT! Willow fires up, the fans are with her, and Willow whips to then SPINEBUSTER! High stack cover, TWO! Fans fire up and Ruby again tries to ask for mercy from her old friend. Willow YANKS Ruby up into a fireman’s carry! Ruby slips free and shoves Willow away.
Willow stops from hitting buckles, turns around and dodges Ruby. Ruby elbows back, goes up and headscissors, only for Willow to pop Ruby up into a fireman’s carry! RUNNING DEATH VALLEY! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives and Willow is seething! Ruby sits up in a daze, Willow goes to a corner and she climbs up. Fans rally, but Storm distracts! Ruby gets an arm, wrenches, SUPER NO FUTURE! And then another NO FUTURE!! Cover, TWO!?!? No one can believe it, least of all Ruby! Ruby is furious, and she drags Willow up. Ruby turns Willow around, clinches, but Willow backslides it! TWO!!!
Ruby escapes but Willow runs through the clothesline to POUNCE Ruby into ropes!! Fans are thunderous as Willow brings down the straps! Saraya & Storm are freaking out as Willow gut wrenches Ruby. Saraya distracts the ref so that Storm can drag Ruby to safety! Willow grabs at Storm, only for Ruby to roll her up! Feet on the ropes! And Storm even holds them in place! Ruby wins!!
Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall
The Outcasts were all over this one and Willow is furious! But Storm just CLOBBERS Willow from behind! Fans boo as the Outcasts stomp Willow! Then they bring out the spray paint! Ruby says that’s not good enough, and she goes looking under the table. She brings out a chair! Fans boo more as the stomping continues. Ruby puts Willow in a drop zone, then puts a chair around a leg! Storm rains down fists to keep Willow down, but here come Riho and Skye Blue! They slide in, and they fire fists with the Outcasts!

The AEW Women’s World Champion rushes in, she DECKS Saraya, ROCKS Ruby, DECKS Storm, then catches Ruby for the HAYTEBREAKER! Storm stands up, into the ripcord, but Storm dodges! The Outcasts run away and fans fire up! Hayter sees Riho, and helps her stand up. These two are allied against the Outcasts, but these two are going to fight over the title next week! Riho makes the motion that she’ll be champion again, and Hayter nods respect.
Will the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion become the first-ever two-time champion? Or will Riho learn that #HayterHitsHard?
BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!
On top of Juice VS Action, Sammy Guevara is in action against Konosuke Takeshita! Will the Spanish God keep pace with Jungle Boy on this #1 contender’s race? And with Best Friends back from injury, they’re back in action, going up against the House of Black’s Kings of the Black Throne! Will Brody King & Malakai Black soon send Trent & Chuck back onto the injured list? And as mentioned, Taya Valkyrie has her second match in AEW, and she’s up against Marina Shafir! Will La Wera Loca look to solve The Problem before taking on Jade Cargill?
Will Hobbs speaks.
“March 24th, 2023 was proclaimed Powerhouse Hobbs Day. With the Book of Hobbs already proclaimed that I was the man who was gonna crash into Wardlow’s World. Who’s the man that beat Rey Fenix? Who’s the man that beat Penta? Who’s the man that beat the legend, Christopher Daniels himself? Just like the good Book of Hobbs states, this TNT Championship will never, ever leave my waist.” The Powerhouse has spoken, will there ever be a final chapter in his story?
Adam Cole VS Daniel Garcia!
With AEW All Access premiering tonight, right after Dynamite, this long awaited return was right on time. Will AEW continue to be all about the boom? Or will Red Death go from Dragonslayer to major buzzkill?
The bell rings and fans chant, “ADAM COLE!” “WELCOME BACK!” Garcia shrugs that off as he talks some trash. He and Cole tie up, go around, and Cole wrenches to a wristlock. Garcia pie faces, wrenches, and wristlocks back. Cole rolls, wrenches and wristlocks again, but Garcia rolls to shoot around and waistlock for the SLAM! Garcia slaps Cole around then “kicks dirt” at him. Fans boo the disrespect but Garcia says things have changed since Cole was last in the ring. Cole keeps cool and he resets with Garcia. They feel things out, knuckle lock, and Cole shoots to a waistlock. Garcia reaches back and brings Cole into a headlock.
Cole pops out the back, headlocks in return, but Garcia powers out. Cole runs Garcia over and fans fire up. Things speed up, Garcia drops, but Cole fakes out the hurdle to headlock again. Garcia back suplexes, Cole lands on his feet but he does stumble. Cole still gets up to headlock again. Garcia powers out, Cole goes up and over in the corner, then headlocks for a takeover. Garcia tries the headscissors but Cole shrugs that off. Fans rally, Garcia pulls hair and the ref reprimands. Garcia uses the hair to get the headscissors, and he flexes while fans boo. Cole kips free, but Garcia throat chops! And then lift, PILEDRIVER!!
Cole scrambles out of the ring and Garcia wants this one called. The ref checks Cole while fans boo. Garcia soaks up the heat, fans chant “You’re a Wrestler!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Garcia waits on Cole, and Cole is somehow okay to continue. Garcia grows a bit impatient, then says Cole must not be as good as he thinks. Cole slowly sits up as the count climbs, and Garcia wags his finger at the fans. Cole finally crawls to the apron but Garcia goes out after him! Garcia brings Cole back in, but Cole resists the lift to back drop Garcia away! Garcia flounders on the flour while Cole gets in the ring. Garcia drags himself up and to the apron, Cole storms over, and Garcia HOTSHOTS him away! Cole sputters, Garcia rushes in to stomp away! Garcia soaks up more heat as he roars and flexes.
Cole flounders but Garcia stands on his hair. Garcia pulls the arms to also pull the hair! The ref reprimands, Garcia stops at 4, and then he stalks Cole to ropes. Garcia CHOKES Cole while talking trash, then lets off as the ref counts. Garcia stalks Cole to a corner, brings him out, and DECKS him with a haymaker! Cole sits up in a daze while Garcia taunts him. Garcia drags Cole back up and DECKS him again! Garcia talks trash on the fans while Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans boo, Garcia brings Cole back up, but Cole throws body shots. Garcia UPPERCUTS! Cole ROCKS Garcia with a forearm, so Garcia throws a haymaker!
Cole fires off forearms and he backs Garcia down. Cole whips, Garcia reverses but Cole clotheslines! And elbows! And BOOTS! Fans fire up and Cole waits on Garcia. Fireman’s carry, but Garcia throws elbows to get free. Garcia runs, but into the fireman’s carry! USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO! Garcia kicks at Cole from below and Cole gets space. Fans rally as both men rise. Cole aims, but Garcia blocks the superkick! Garcia stands to SLAP Cole! Garcia runs, into a BOOT! Cole runs, into a BOOT! Cole PELES but misses! Garcia deadlift GERMAN SUPLEXES! Fans boo but Garcia roars and Cole writhes.
Garcia aims from a corner with a smug grin. Fans chant, “You’re a Wrestler!” but Garcia ignores that to tune up the band. Cole stands, Garcia rushes in, but Cole SUPERKICKS first! Cole pushes Garcia down to a cover, TWO!! Garcia survives but Cole goes to a corner. Cole sits Garcia up, but Garcia stops Cole from bringing the kneepad down. Cole throws hands again and again and Garcia lets go. The kneepad comes down, Cole runs, but Garcia ducks the Boom! To throw HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Then REAR NAKED CHOKE! Cole rolls back to a cover, TWO! 52 Fake Out takes out the knees!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall
The comeback is complete! Cole’s head was a bull’s eye, but Cole’s head was always in the match. And here comes Britt Baker to celebrate with her man! They even kiss! Gold ‘n’ black streamers fly, will this be a new era for the Undisputed One?
Wait, here comes Chris Jericho! The Ocho, the Wizard, Le Champion storms right to the ring to check on Garcia. Fans sing Judas as Jericho helps Garcia out of the ring. Jericho glares at Cole, then helps Garcia up the ramp and out of those streamers. Jericho is tempted to glance back at Cole but chooses not to. Does the Jericho Appreciation Society have a new pro-wrestler to target in Adam Cole, BAYBAY?
A great AEW, and given AEW All Access debuts tonight, it makes good business sense for Cole to main event. It was his big return, he is a big part of the All Access material, and it was a great win in a great match with Garcia. Jericho coming out at the end to try and steal the spotlight for just a moment of course is a sign that Cole is going to feud with Jericho going towards Double or Nothing, and that is going to be great stuff. Good quick promo from Hobbs, and him still mentioning Wardlow, they’re just making sure we all understand this is still gonna circle back to Hobbs VS Wardlow even though there should’ve been a way to cap this off before. Darn you, QT.
Really good match from Ruby VS Willow, but of course the Outcasts get at Willow the whole time. Willow loses but it is technically protected because of the interference, and we get another moment of Riho and Skye Blue making a save. It didn’t work out, so good move to have Hayter go out there. Hayter VS Riho happening next week will be good stuff, probably up until The Outcasts interfere. Then somehow, someway, we’ll finally get Blood & Guts set up for the Women’s Division. And then decent promo from Jade and her faction. Between only booking one women’s match a show and stretching things towards special episodes or PPVs, this is gonna be a build that’s too long, again.
Decent promo from Juice, but it kinda flies in the face of Juice saying he isn’t gonna wrestle in Missouri since he hates Missouri. He should’ve thrown in that he is being forced into this. Juice will definitely win against Action, and maybe Juice beats up on Action so that Ricky Starks shows up to chase Juice off, thereby hyping up their match for next Wednesday in Long Island. Good promo from The Gunns to hype up the tag team title match next week. Obviously since that match is happening after WrestleMania, it would seem FTR isn’t leaving to go back to WWE, they’re likely going to win to take those titles back.
Really fun montage of The Acclaimed hanging out with Menard & Parker in St. Louis. I do like that The Acclaimed is stringing Menard & Parker along, they’re definitely not joining the JAS. That will upset them and the JAS will want a match where I’m sure the stipulation is, if The Acclaimed loses, they must join the JAS. And then the JAS will lose that and look like dummies. Anyway, great title match from Cassidy VS Butcher. Good overbooking as Blade, Trent and Chuck get involved, and this was a great return moment for Best Friends. Trent & Chuck VS Malakai & Brody on Friday is going to be really good stuff, and maybe Best Friends challenge for the trios titles at some point.
Really good stuff out of this BCC VS Elite story they’re building. The BCC of course beat Castle & The Boys, but they really up the Heel heat with the ambush. And then they beat up Hangman and bust open Callis, which was really surprising. Face Moxley bled all the time, but Heel Moxley makes everyone else bleed. Omega VS Cobb was awesome stuff, but I suppose it’s fine that Omega wins. Bryan making his return was a great surprise, and then what a wild moment with him turning to be on the same page as the rest of the BCC. And right there is this year’s match for Men’s Blood & Guts: the full BCC against the OG Elite, Omega, Hangman & Bucks, and that is gonna be awesome.
And of course, great stuff in the opening. JB VS Hardy was really good, and it tied into The Firm’s story with Hook, which did have the #JungleHook story on the side. MJF and JB had a great promo segment to follow, and I have a feeling MJF is gonna have segments like that with the other Young Pillars before we get the official #1 contender. Sammy VS Konosuke on Rampage is going to be awesome stuff, and I hope Callis comes around to keep on that whole recruiting of Konosuke. I would think Sammy will win because he needs to keep pace with JB, and then Darby will also win a big match on Dynamite or Ramage to do the same. Honestly, this needs to end in a Triple Threat of JB VS Darby VS Sammy to name THE #1 contender, that’d be the best course of action.
My Score: 8.8/10

For those unfamiliar, Steph De Lander is formerly Persia Pirotta of NXT, though she has a very different look now, I almost didn’t recognize her. Brady Booker, formerly Bodhi Hayward, is back in action, good to see him. And while most of these matches seem pretty straight forward, I feel like Queen Aminata VS Skye Blue is the one that could go either way. Skye’s been building herself up in AEW and ROH but Aminata is impressive in her own right.
