PLAY BY PLAY

Tony Schiavone and Tony Khan are in the ring!

Daily’s Place is fired up as AEW returns home on the Road to Revolution! Schiavone knows he doesn’t need to introduce the owner and CEO, but Khan has a major announcement! Tony thanks Tony for the mic, and Khan says he normally keeps people on time so he’ll make sure to get to wrestling asap. He thanks the fans for being here, as well as those watching at home. The fans have been the ones keeping this company going through these hard times. Tonight is a big night, and this is perhaps the biggest week in this company’s history. We’re on the road to Revolution this Sunday on PPV, and to add to that, here is his huge announcement!

Khan appreciates people being here for this. When they started AEW three years ago, it was out in the parking lot! A lot of fans were here at the very beginning. It was 17 years before that, another wrestling company started. That company… was ROH! Ring of Honor! And Khan has been a fan of ROH for a long time, so he is very excited, because today, Tony Khan signed a deal, and is the NEW OWNER OF ROH!! That is HUGE! There is no Shane McMahon, it’s all Tony Khan! Almost 20 years ago, ROH launched into an ear of honor with one of the biggest events ever. That main event, maybe some were here. But one man who was there was CHRISTOPHER DANIELS!

Christopher Daniels is an AEW Original, an ROH Original, and the man he wrestled, neither won that night and it’s been eating both men up for 20 years. The man he wrestled is here tonight, and the man who will face Jon Moxley at Revolution! That man is here for the first time in Daily’s Place. That man is none other than BRYAN DANIELSON! The American Dragon is already dressed to compete, because he is facing… THE FALLEN ANGEL!! That match from ROH’s first event opens this already historic Dynamite! But will there finally be a winner?

Bryan Danielson VS Christopher Daniels!

The bell rings and fans are fired up as the two stare down. Fans chant for “R O H! R O H!” as the two shake hands! AEW sees the Code of Honor upheld, and the two tie up. Bryan gets around to full nelson, Daniels slips through but Bryan turns it back around to hammerlock. Bryan wrangles Daniels down but Daniels fights back up. Daniels headlocks, spins and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER and wristlock. Bryan rolls, bridges, gets up and throws Daniels over! Fans fire up as Bryan strikes a pose, then does jumping jacks just to show off. Daniels nods and circles with Bryan again as fans rally up.

Fans chant and duel, “FALLEN ANGEL!” “LET’S GO, BRYAN!” as the two tie up again. Daniels headlocks, Bryan powers out but Daniels runs him over. Things speed up, Daniels handsprings and arm-drags, then he strikes a pose! And does jumping jacks! Daniels says that’s one and one, and Bryan nods back. They shake hands again and fans cheer the sportsmanship. They circle, tie up, Bryan drop toeholds and then rear mounts to go after Daniels’ face! The ref reprimands, Bryan wrenches an arm and tries a double wristlock. Daniels powers out, things speed up, and Bryan runs Daniels over!

Bryan gets the arm and wrenches, to return that ELBOW BREAKER! Bryan hammerlocks, wrangles Daniels down and gets the other arm. Bryan stands on the arm and makes it a recliner! Cover, TWO! Bryan keeps on Daniels with a headlock but Daniels powers out. Things speed up again and Daniels CALF KICKS! Bryan bails out but Daniels WRECKS him with a dropkick! And then ARABIAN PRESS! Direct hit and Daniels plays like he’s shocked. The fans fire up, Daniels ROCKS Bryan again, and then he puts Bryan back in. Daniels goes up, Bryan stands and he KICKS the crossbody outta the air!

Daniels sits up, Bryan KICKS Daniels again! And again! Bryan says, “Fallen Angel, huh?” Bryan brings Daniels up to EuroUpper hard! Daniels gets to a corner, Bryan EuroUppers again! Bryan whips, and he kitchen sink knees Daniels down! Bryan soaks up the cheers and jeers, then Bryan JAMS a knee into Daniels. Bryan stomps Daniels, drags him around by a leg and uses a toehold to turn him over. Bryan hooks up the legs and KNEES Daniels in the back. Bryan fish hooks Daniels’ face, the ref counts and Bryan lets off right at 4. Bryan then pulls Daniels into a BOW ‘N’ ARROW! Daniels endures, he touches the rope and Bryan lets him go.

Bryan drags Daniels up to CHOP him! Daniels CHOPS back! Bryan CHOPS again! Daniels CHOPS again! Bryan EuroUppers, then again! Bryan whips, Daniels reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps going to duck and dodges, into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Fans fire up while both men are down. Bryan crawls to a corner while Daniels drags himself up the ropes. Daniels runs and rallies on Bryan with clotheslines! Bryan reverses the whip, Daniels KICKS him back and hits an STO! Fans fire up with Daniels, he runs corner to corner but Bryan BOOTS him! Bryan goes up, Daniels SHOTEIS!

Daniels brings Bryan out, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Daniels calls his shot, reels Bryan in and underhooks the arms, but Bryan RAMS him into buckles! Then turns him around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Daniels flounders all the way to the far corner. Daniels drags himself up, Bryan runs in to DROPKICK! Bryan brings Daniels back up, CHOPS him, then KICKS him! And CHOPS, and KICKS, repeat! Bryan hoists Daniels up top as the count climbs, then Bryan climbs up to join Daniels. Fans fire up as Daniels fights off the superplex! Daniels elbows Bryan over and over, then HEADBUTTS him down!

Bryan staggers up, Daniels CROSBODIES this time! But Bryan rolls it through, TWO! To an ARMBAR! But Daniels makes it a cover, TWO! Daniels drop toeholds and gets an arm, but Bryan trips Daniels to La Magistrol, only for Daniels to block partway! TWO, into a crucifix, TWO! Daniels hits Bryan with a big haymaker, but Bryan just brushes it off! Bryan ROCKS Daniels, Daniels ROCKS him back! They go back and forth, fans fire up as Bryan gets the edge! Bryan spins, into a JAB from Daniels! Daniels JABS, JABS, JABS, then swings, but Bryan bobs ‘n’ weaves to DECK Daniels with a slap! Then ROLLING ELBOW! Cover, TWO!!

Bryan might’ve been a bit cocky on the cover and Daniels survives because of it! But Bryan says he’ll end this, and fans rally up as Bryan climbs a corner. Daniels gets up to trip Bryan up! And SHOTEI! Daniels gets Bryan’s arms again but Bryan hooks Daniels’ face! Daniels SHOTEIS again! Daniels climbs up, wants to go to the very top, SUPER- NO! Bryan shoves the Steiner away to then leap, into an URENAGE! Daniels hurries, BEST MOONSAULT EVER into a TRIANGLE!! Bryan has Daniels caught and fans go nuts! Bryan rains down elbows as Daniels reaches for ropes! Daniels fades, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

But Bryan holds on, to literally flex on Daniels! The American Dragon finally gets the win on the Fallen Angel, but now he gets the mic. “Ladies and gentlemen, 20 years since the first Ring of Honor show. Christopher Daniels and I were in the main event. And at that time, we started matches with a handshake, and we ended matches with a handshake.” Bryan reaches down to Daniels, takes his hand, and says, “Let’s hear it for Christopher Daniels. But here’s the thing: I’m not in Ring of Honor! I’m in AEW! And it’s time to kick somebody’s head in!” Bryan gets both hands to give Daniels DANIELSON STOMPS!!

Bryan lets off and soaks up the cheers and jeers before calling out Jon Moxley! “On Sunday, at Revolution, the head that’s gonna be stomped in is yours!” But wait! Here comes the Maniac himself! Moxley heads through the bleachers and down to the ring. Moxley gets himself a mic before he gets in the ring with Bryan. “I can see that the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, is better than ever. And I can see that Bryan Danielson is more violent than ever. But you got it wrong, my friend. There’s two paths I can walk right now, I’m at what they call a crossroads. And which path I take will determine my future.”

Bryan thinks Moxley walks the path that gets his head kicked in on Sunday and he fades into oblivion, never to be heard from again. But that ain’t gonna happen. Not by a long shot. Moxley chooses to walk another path! “Through sheer force of will, refusal to die, I will walk this path through fire, through bullets, and through you! Because at the end of this path is something that looked impossible not too long ago. At the end of this path, I beat the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson! The story of Jon Moxley is just startin’! It’s just beginning. And I write the first chapter on Sunday, a chapter that’s gonna be written in blood!”

But since Bryan wants to talk about what he’ll do to Moxley, kick his head in, there’s like a million people watching at home and thousands live in the crowd. If Bryan wants to prove Moxley wrong, then take a shot! Moxley drops the mic and throws off the jacket as fans fire up! Bryan drops his mic, he steps to Moxley, but then bails right out. Fans boo but this battle will happen at Revolution! Will Bryan beat the hell out of Moxley? Will Moxley beat the hell out of Bryan? And will they still somehow form that most violent faction in the world?

 

Darby Allin & Sting speak.

The Icon says that this Friday on Rampage, there will be heavy duty fines and indefinite suspensions for anyone who tries to get involved in the coming Triple Threat. No big deal to Sting. Is it any bother to Darby? Not at all. He didn’t need anyone’s help to win the TNT Championship, and he won’t need help this time. “Sammy, no matter what happens on Friday, we’re teaming up on Sunday at Revolution. You, me and Sting to take on Hardy, Andrade and Isiah. And we’ll do what we always do, baby: steal the show. Because ain’t nobody getting more psychotic than us.” But as for Rampage, the TNT title, “It’s showtime.” Who will hold the gold going into Revolution?

Winners: The Young Bucks (advance to AEW Revolution’s World Tag Team Championship match)

And reDRagon get in to celebrate with them! The Elite conspiracy has worked out in their favor! But here comes Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus see the two teams they’re facing this Sunday, will they still be golden after Revolution?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“The entire wrestling world is buzzing over the announcement of Eddie Kingston VS Chris Jericho this Sunday at Revolution after our promo segment- Well, Eddie, you probably don’t know what a promo is. After our conversation on Dynamite last week. Congratulations, kid, you’re finally becoming the big star I always knew you would be.” But Jericho still can’t related to a guy like Kingston, because Jericho’s been such a big star for so long and Kingston… well, hasn’t. But this Sunday, it’s finally Kingston’s chance to win the big one. Because like Jericho said last week, Jericho IS the big one in AEW.

So Kingston, look deep down inside. Do you really think you have what it takes to beat the Influencer? Do you really think you have the confidence to get over your fear of success? Jericho doesn’t think so. But if Kingston does, IF, then Jericho will shake his hand and tell him he has his undying respect. But if not, which he won’t, Jericho will laugh at Kingston’s pathetic ass and to GFY. Santana and Ortiz walk in, Jericho raises a fist, and he gets fist bumps in return. Are they good? Santana & Ortiz don’t answer that, but Jericho says he always has their backs. Will the Inner Circle still be standing, no matter what happens between Le Champion and the Mad King?

 

CM Punk heads to the ring!

The Best of the World looks rather conflicted as he walks out into Daily’s Place and gets the mic. Fans chant for Punk, and Punk says he used to wake up every morning, splash his face with some water and look himself in the eye in the mirror. He’d ask himself, “Am I the bad guy?” Punk never had an answer. He doesn’t believe anyone thinks of themselves as the “bad guy” in their own story. Up until a week ago, Punk was sure MJF was the bad guy. And he’ll say right now, Punk thinks what Max did last week, to come out and bare his soul like that, on national television, that takes courage. Courage Punk didn’t think MJF had.

MJF spoke about a lot of deep, powerful things. But Punk also can’t shake the feeling that he’s just being gaslighted. Punk makes it clear to everyone watching: Punk doesn’t think MJF is lying. Those things surely happened to MJF. Where the questions lie is in the sincerity. Punk might be getting soft, because he isn’t even sure if it matters. There’s a famous picture of Punk online, very young, with Stone Cold Steve Austin. And after much lesser men framed Austin as a man who took his ball and went home, Punk didn’t get mad at the world. Punk didn’t lash out and do horrible things.

And since being here in AEW, Punk has seen Max knockout the legendary Dean Malenko, who is suffering from Parkinson’s. Punk heard MJF bury the late, great Brian Pillman Senior, in his hometown. Punk had to watch MJF say awful things about Darby Allin’s late uncle. And here’s the thing, ladies and gentlemen, this is the one fact Punk knows: “Hurt people hurt people.” When Punk came to AEW, MJF stood in front of him, introduced himself and Punk didn’t shake his hand. Is Punk to blame for MJF’s horrible behavior? Is Punk somehow Dr. Frankenstein and MJF is the monster he created?

Punk thinks everyone has to take responsibility for their actions. And Punk is pretty sure there is nothing he can say that is more impactful than something he can do. In order to do that, he needs MJF to come out here. Punk doesn’t want anyone but Max from last week to come out here. They can talk, have a conversation in front of the world. Punk waits and fans chant, and without music, MJF makes his way out. MJF joins Punk in the ring, and though fans boo, he keeps his cool. Punk walks up to MJF to say, “Here’s the thing, Max. I’ve done horrible things in my life. I used to be you, so full of hate.”

Punk poured alcohol down an alcoholic’s throat. He covered a legendary wrestler in the ashes of his dead, beloved manager. He mocked a wrestler’s addiction until he lost his JOB because of it. And Punk is here to say that all that hate is not going to keep you warm, it’ll burn you up. Punk would like to think that his respect isn’t just given, it is earned. And right now, this is bigger than Punk, bigger than MJF, bigger than wrestling. This is about an 11 year old kid watching at home right now, and right now he looks up to MJF the same way MJF looked up to Punk. That is what this is about.

Punk might be wrong, but he woke up this morning, splashed water in his face, and he looked at himself in the mirror and asked, “Are you the good guy?” Punk finally had an answer. That answer is… He is sure trying. Punk offers a handshake and fans aren’t sure what to make of this. MJF himself isn’t sure what to make of it. MJF pushes past the handshake to HUG Punk. MJF is hugging his childhood hero, and now Punk is the one unsure what to make of this. Punk hugs him back! Fans cheer this cathartic moment for Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and then MJF KICKS PUNK IN THE BALLS!

MJF throws off his jacket, drags Punk up and throws him through ropes, to then reel him in for the HEATSEEKER!! MJF rips off his fancy button-up shirt to reveal a T-shirt with THAT PICTURE on it! Young Max and Punk at the meet ‘n’ greet! MJF then calls for his henchmen! Wardlow and Shawn Spears walk out, and they have both diamond ring and dog collar! MJF puts the ring on his pinkie, and he demands Punk get up! Punk slowly stirs, manages to get to his feet, DYNAMITE DIAMOND PUNCH!! MJF stands up on the corner and shows off the ring as he soaks up all the heat. FTR also return to watch the ramp as MJF rains down fists!

Punk is busted open, MJF BITES Punk’s forehead! FTR CLOBBER security as they rush out! Spears gets in the ring and mocks Punk. MJF drags Punk up, smears the blood all over his shirt, then throws Punk out of the ring! Punk sputters on the floor, MJF gets him up to punch the bloody wound more! MJF stands Punk up for Spears to put the collar on him! MJF tells the timekeeper to stop ringing the bell, then he gets a mic. “You stupid, stupid old man. I’m a snake. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he doesn’t exist. And this Sunday, at Revolution, I’m going to show you and all these mindless sheep that I am the devil himself!”

MJF then has Spears CHOKE Punk by pulling the chain! Punk dangles from the ropes while bleeding, but here comes Sting, Darby and Sammy Guevara! They run The Pinnacle off, but the damage has been done! Punk can finally breathe again, will he make sure MJF never speaks again?

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Schiavone says the Limitless One has qualified for the Face of the Revolution, but before that, Friday Night Rampage will see Keith Lee have a little tune-up. But before Keith can comment, Ricky Starks walks in, imitating Keith’s “Greetings and salutations.” Keith has Starks stop right there. Starks has twice interrupted him. If there is a third, there will be none of Starks left to do so again. Well Starks is just here to let Keith know that Rampage is Starks Country. And Hobbs is the President.

With that all said, Starks is giving Keith a fair warning. If Keith shows up on Rampage, he might not make it to Revolution. Starks is just being a good brother, and giving Keith a heads-up. See you when they see you. And Keith promises to be there. Will this little warning do little to scare the Limitless One away?

 

Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter w/ Rebel VS Thunder Rosa & Mercedes Martinez!

The AEW Women’s World Champion and her sidekick are in action as the Doctor prepares for her title match at Revolution. But will La Mera Mera & Mean Ms. Mercedes be merciless to Britt Baker, DMD?

La Mera Mera just pinned the champ! Will she do that all over again at Revolution? Or will Britt find a way to keep the title?

 

Backstage interview with Tay Conti & Anna Jay.

Tay accepted Jade Cargill’s open challenge for the TBS Championship at Revolution. Tay is a Black Belt in Judo, and a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu. How does she hope to get that gold belt? Before she can say anything, Mark Sterling & Jade Cargill walk in. Of course they show up. Jade says, “Bitch, shut up before I kick you in the face again. Nobody gives a damn about that karate shit.” Jay keeps Tay from firing off, and Sterling says someone didn’t read the fine print. If Tay so much as harms a green hair on Jade’s head, this title opportunity will be taken away faster than you can say jiujitsu. Tay clams down, and Jade says to be thankful she gave Tay this opportunity.

The Jade Brand leaves, TayJay stays cool. Will the Brazilian Blackbelt Beauty beat some modesty into Jade? Or will she just be the newest loser on #ThatBitchShow?

 

Sammy Guevara has his cue cards!

AEW goes picture in picture as Sammy shares his thoughts. “Fines! Suspensions! Why is that what it takes just to get a fair match with you? Matt, Isiah, Andrade, can you do nothing on your own? When I won this belt, I didn’t need or want help! The Inner Circle didn’t fight my battles! I DID! Which is why I respect you, Darby Allin! You do it the same way. Every fight with you has been fair. This Sunday, it will be an honor to fight along side you and an icon, STING! Make no mistakes though, this Friday, you are nothing more, than another opponent! Good luck!” El Idolo VS The Relentless VS The Spanish God, but there can only be ONE TNT Champion!

 

AEW hears from Kris Statlander and Leyla Hirsch.

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien says, “Leyla, you call yourself a legit athlete. But a legit athlete would know how to take a loss, learn from the experience, and yet, all you’ve done is blame me for winning.” But Leyla says, “Stat, you said that my parents had a reason for giving me up for adoption.” Kris stands by what she said about Leyla being childish, and she meant it with every fiber of her being. Leyla asks the producers why she’s even doing this. Why is she talking to a camera? Kris said what she said. Kris says if Leyla wants to talk struggles, Kris will give her something to struggle with. They’re about to see a whole different side to Kris Statlander no one has ever seen before.

Leyla is done talking! She’ll let her actions speak louder than Kris’ words! What happens when these two finally have it out in the ring 1v1?

 

Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears VS Cezar Bononi!

We saw the members of The Pinnacle play their part in MJF’s brutalizing of CM Punk, but the Maestro of Mayhem actually just stood by and watched. Is he not in agreement with his teammates anymore? Or will he start doing things the way they want against the Wingmen’s Brazilian Beefcake?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Bononi knees low, CLUBS Wardlow, and then whips him to ropes. Wardlow uses that to reel Bononi in! POWERBOMB! Fans fire up as it begins already! Spears isn’t happy but fans want that “ONE MORE TIME!” Wardlow gets Bononi back up, to POWERBOMB again! And then roll Bononi up and into a THIRD POWERBOMB! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

And he did it his way! Spears gets in with his chair, but Wardlow stops him from getting his shots in! Spears lets the chair go, fans chant for Wardlow and Spears throws off his beanie. Wardlow doesn’t back down from The Chair Man, so Spears steps away. Will the War Dog become the new Face of the Revolution in that stacked field of stars?

 

AEW hears from The House of Black.

Malakai says, “You have deemed us inherently evil. But wasn’t it the House, PAC, that gave you new sight? Wasn’t it the House, Pentagon, that gave you new means to find new levels of…” “Violence,” Brody King finishes. “The part of the human condition that society chooses to shun. The part that the House has embraced and enforced as you sit back and cast…” “Judgement,” Buddy Matthews finishes. “The one thing everyone passes, and everyone fears to receive. We don’t cast judgement. We seek the truth. And the truth is is that we are the House.” “And the house always wins.” Will this trifecta of terror tear down the norms to enlighten AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Wardlow and Shawn Spears.

The Chair Man knows the big guy is mad, but Spears still loves him! And big news! Max, c’mere! MJF says he heard Wardlow got a little perturbed earlier, so here’s some good news. If Wardlow wins the ladder match and beats the TNT Champion, he can keep the title. Besides, it’s not like he’s going to win it anyway. MJF starts to walk off but Wardlow says it’s only because he’s too busy making sure MJF’s winning. MJF comes back to SLAP Wardlow! Maybe Wardlow forgot: he isn’t a pro-wrestler, he is MJF’s bodyguard! Wardlow doesn’t work for AEW, he works for MJF! And if MJF were Wardlow, he would not mistake kindness for weakness or Wardlow’s family will be out on the street! Will the War Dog obey his “master?” Or will he finally bite the hand that feeds him?

 

Six Man Tag: Hangman Page & The Dark Order VS Adam Cole & reDRagon!

Before the battle of Adams at Revolution for THE AEW World Championship, Page and Cole call upon their friends! The Good, The Bad & The Hungy ride again against the undisputed paragons of pro-wrestling! Will champion or challenger have all the momentum going into their title bout?

The ref keeps the peace as the trios want after each other. The teams sort out and the Adams start things off! Fans fire up to see this preview, but then Cole backs off and tags to Bobby Fish. Hangman figured as much, and he circles with the Infamous One. They approach, Hangman avoids the roundhouse to fire off haymakers! Fish reverses the whip but Hangman slips out of the scoop to shove and BOOT! Fish flounders and Hangman brings him up to bump off buckles. Hangman stomps away on Fish, the ref counts and Hangman lets off at 4. Fans fire up and Hangman drags Fish up. Fish knees low and brings him around for knees.

Fish tags Kyle O’Reilly, reDRagon mugs Hangman and then double whips. Hangman busts through the double kicks to run Kyle over! And then kick Fish to suplex onto Kyle! Cover, TWO! Hangman drags Kyle up, tags in John Silver, and Silver brawls with Kyle. Kyle and Silver trade KICKS, but Kyle gets a facelock! But Silver suplexes Kyle first! Fans chant for “Johnny Hungy!” as he tags in Alex Reynolds. They get the legs to roll and TOSS Kyle! Fish gets in, but runs into double drop toeholds! DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICKS! Kyle gets up but Reynolds dodges him to dropkick him down!

Fans fire up with Reynolds, he covers, ONE! Reynolds drags Kyle up, underhooks the arms but Cole rushes in. Reynolds chases him off, but turns around into fast strikes from Kyle! Leg sweep! Tag to Cole and he drags Reynolds around to rain down fists! Cole tags Kyle back in, Kyle KNEES Reynolds low. Kyle wraps Reynolds up, cobra twist! Reynolds endures, and reDRagon links up to add leverage! The ref sees that and reprimands. Fish lets go, Reynolds hip tosses free! Kyle gets the foot but Reynolds fights his way over, hot tag to Hangman! The Cowboy fires off haymakers on Kyle then whips him to ropes.

Kyle holds ropes and bails out, but Hangman pursues! They go around, get in, Fish tags and Kyle baits Hangman. Fish KICKS Hangman’s leg out and then Kyle knocks the Beaver Boys down! Fish drops elbows on the leg, and now Cole wants Hangman! Tag to Cole and he hops up. Cole takes aim, leaps, PANAMA- NO! Hangman has Cole in the Alabama, but Cole flails to sunset flip! TWO, Hangman sits on the cover, TWO! Hangman rolls through to jackknife and Alabama! Cole fights that off, suplexes, but Hangman slips out! Hangman waistlocks but he ducks Cole’s elbow. Cole ducks the lariat, mule kick to the leg!

Cole brings the kneepad down fast, runs, but Hangman ducks the Boom! Hangman runs in but is put on the apron! But Cole sees him load up! Cole bails out before Hangman can slingshot in, and reDRagon regroups with Cole. Fans boo while AEW goes picture in picture.

Hangman dares someone to get in but the ref keeps him back. The ring count starts, Cole takes his time returning, and he still stays back to tag Kyle. Hangman tags Silver, Silver and Kyle circle again. They tie up, go around, Silver headlocks but Kyle powers out. Silver runs Kyle over, then flexes! He’s friggin’ jacked, baby!

Fish is frustrated but he drags Silver up to bump off buckles. Tag to Cole, Cole drags Silver up and cravats for a snapmare.

Cole clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Silver down. Silver endures, even as Cole pushes the hold. AEW returns to single picture and fans rally up. Silver throws body shots, Cole knees low.

Kyle blocks a kick to bring Silver around and sweep the leg! HEEL HOOK!

Silver endures and kicks free, but Kyle tags Fish! Fish drags Silver, Silver BOOTS him away! Hot tags to Cole and Hangman! Cole stops in his tracks, he tags right back to Kyle! Hangman rallies on Kyle, whips corner to corner but Kyle reverses. Hangman uses that to triangle jump LARIAT Fish down! Hangman dodges Kyle, scoops him and FALL AWAY SLAMS!

Cole fires off hands, then SUPERKICKS again! Cole holds up the AEW World Championship and tells Hangman that it will belong to him! Will Cole prove he’s the superior Adam now, then and forever? Or will he be in for some serious #CowboyShit at Revolution?


My Thoughts:

A great go-home for AEW! For one, HUGE news to start the show. I had a feeling and yet didn’t think it’d be possible, but now Tony Khan and AEW own ROH! Word’s getting out that ROH will become the developmental to AEW, but only time will tell. Also no idea if this means ROH coverage will return, but still exciting stuff. Bryan VS Daniels was a great match to follow up that news, and it also segued perfectly into Bryan and Moxley having one more face-off before the match. I really don’t have an idea how this one goes. I would think Moxley wins the match, but it’d be a much bigger surprise if they still become a team after this since Bryan’s going very Heel and Moxley is Face.

AEW once again gives us an awesome battle royal. It was awesome to get Top Flight back at 100% with Darius’ return. And even 2point0 being the last team for a letdown was a great move. And while it looked like Top Flight had a shot to shock the world, the plan stays as I expected. Young Bucks, reDRagon and Jurassic Express are going to have a great Triple Threat tag, and I fully expected Bucks and reDRagon to cancel out so that Jurassic Express can retain. Jericho’s promo was just him repeating what he said last week, so that was a bit disappointing. It was also surprising that Santana & Ortiz even gave him fist bumps. Jericho VS Kingston could still go either way, but I was hoping for a bit more drama in the Inner Circle over this stuff. Maybe we still get that even after Revolution.

The segment with Punk, MJF and the rest of The Pinnacle went as I expected and yet still went above what I expected. Punk already got really bloody, and he’ll surely just get bloody all over again at Revolution. MJF got his shots in, I’m thinking he loses on Sunday. Wardlow put Bononi away much faster than I could’ve expected, but it worked perfectly within the story that’s building. I’m a little surprised MJF is “letting” Wardlow keep whatever title he wins, but Wardlow breaking free from The Pinnacle is still coming. Hell, it could happen at Revolution if MJF calls on him to help him against Punk.

Keith Lee had a good segment with Team Taz, you can bet Starks & Hobbs will try to get at Keith on Rampage as their go-home segment. Sammy had another good cue card promo, Darby & Sting had a good backstage promo, but what a surprise that we’re getting a TNT title Triple Threat before the Tornado Trios match. Being a Triple Threat could be the way Andrade gets that title while also putting dysfunction into the Darby-Sting-Sammy team. We got good promos to hype up the TBS Championship match and Statlander VS Hirsch, but I’m still bugged by what’s going on in the latter. Are we getting a completely unmotivated double turn? I’d really hate that.

The women’s tag match was pretty good, but it felt a bit clumsy. It has been some time since Britt and Rosa had a match against each other, they’re probably just working on their chemistry again. I’m sure their title match at Revolution will be much better, but with Rosa standing tall here, I have a feeling AEW is going to keep Britt on top. We got a good House of Black promo, I like that they are framing themselves as tweeners. Once Fenix is back, we can get a killer Six Man out of these guys. And we also got a killer Six Man in tonight’s main event, but Cole & reDRagon of course won here. They stand tall, beating down Hangman, Silver & Reynolds, because Hangman is going to retain that title at Revolution.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (11/28/22)

Chicago gets Elevated!

Published

on

Elevation has Thanksgiving leftovers!

AEW continues in Chicago with ten extra helpings of action! Will Matt Hardy & Private Party continue to get that money for The Firm?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • The Bunny VS Blair Onyx; The Bunny wins.
  • Brandon Cutler VS “Man Scout” Jake Manning; Cutler wins.
  • Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Emi Sakura & Maki Itoh; Nyla & Shafir win.
  • Konosuke Takeshita VS Ari Daivari; Takeshita wins.
  • Lee Moriarty w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Robert Anthony; Moriarty wins.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS GPA & Joe Alonzo; Lethal & Singh win.
  • Six Man Tag: Best Friends & Rocky Romero VS Davey Bang, Freedom Ramsey & Yabo; Best Friends & Rocky win.
  • Athena VS Laynie Luck; Athena wins.
  • Six Man Tag: #HardyParty VS Chaos Project & Isaiah Moore; Hardy Party wins.
  • Eddie Kingston & Ortiz VS Aaron Solo & Nick Comoroto w/ The Factory; Eddie & Ortiz win.

QUICK NOTES

Nice to see some of these names back. It’s been a minute since Robert Anthony’s been on an AEW YouTube show, he’ll give Moriarty a real good match. Maki Itoh is always great to have on the show. Satnam Singh having another match is good, it probably means he’s gearing up to get in on a feud soon. And Chaos Project being in a match means Luther is back. Pretty sure Isaiah Moore takes the lose in that match, though, so that Luther’s return is ruined with him or Serpentico looking bad. Though, it’s not like they were looking all that strong, either.

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs speaks.

He’s back home in Oakland, California as he says, “When you open up the Book of Hobbs, you look death in the face. And you read word-for-word, and look in my eyes, you believe the good word. This is life. A life you know nothing about. A life you want nothing a part of. So whatever higher being you believe in, I want you to look up in the sky, I want you to look down low. Just like everyone has taken everything that’s meant something to me, I’m taking everything that means something to you.” Who will Hobbs take from first to be back where he wants to be?

 

Chris Jericho is here!

The Wizard is still Le Champion! After a brutal and bloody battle with Tomohiro Ishii, Jericho is still #THEOCHO! The rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society walks out with him while Chicago sings Judas for them. Jericho and Garcia chest bump just to show that the bloody spot on Jericho’s chest doesn’t bother him. Angelo Parker starts by telling Chicago to pipe down because Cool Hand Ange has something to say: “ALL HONOR THE OCHO~!” Fans are  bit torn on that but it’s the truth. Jericho says, “Is there any doubt that I am the greatest ROH champion of all time? Any doubt?” Fans are again torn.

Jericho says he’s beaten everyone thrown in his way, including in one of the greatest matches in Dynamite history against Tomohiro Ishii! Fans do agree with that a bit. “I’ve bled for this title, I have sweat for this title, I have earned this title. I am The Ocho. And not even Claudio Castagnoli can come out on the stage and give me a cheap shot, not even that’s gonna slow me down!” So the question to everyone is: who will uncrown the king of ROH? The fans? That four-eyes in the fifth row? But wait, here comes Claudio! Jericho’s jaw starts feeling sore again as Claudio says, “Chris, you asked if there’s any doubt that you are the greatest ROH champion. Well, there is no doubt in my mind that you are not.

“I know that I can beat you. I beat you twice! The problem is, I started doubting myself when I couldn’t beat you when it counts. And to me, the most important thing is believing in yourself. When I came here, I wanted to be the best professional wrestler I can be. And I know I am the best professional wrestler when I don’t doubt myself. So to me, I don’t just need to beat you for this ROH World Champion, I have to beat you!” Jericho says, “Okay, you have to beat me. Maybe you should be more worried about the Blackpool Combat Club since they’re falling apart at the seams, Claudio.”

Claudio says that is a problem. He cannot focus on anything else. He hasn’t slept since Saturday and losing to Jericho. Claudio can’t sleep, focus, can barely talk. It all bothers him. He NEEDS a shot at the ROH World Championship. So he wants another shot at Jericho’s title? Should Jericho give Claudio a shot? Chicago seems to think so! Jericho tells Claudio, “You want it? Forget it.” Fans boo and the JAS laughs. Claudio sighs as Jericho says there is nothing Claudio has to offer Jericho. But then Matt Menard says maybe there is something he can offer.

“Daddy Magic has an idea! Claudio, you’re a hell of a professional wrestler. But let’s not forget there was a time when you were a fantastic sports entertainer. I think you would make an excellent addition to the Jericho Appreciation Society. How about that, Chris?” Jericho likes how Daddy Magic thinks! He’s making Jericho’s nipples hard. Jericho tells Claudio that despite the fact Claudio sucker punched him, Jericho will give Claudio that one more chance. BUT if Claudio loses, and he will lose, he will join the JAS! Claudio considers that challenge.

“You’re right. I was a great sports entertainer. And I still am a great sports entertainer. And I would be a tremendous asset to the Jericho Appreciation Society. But I know deep in my heart, despite all my doubts, and I have a feeling you know as well, I’m an even better professional wrestler! Look in my eyes, Chris. Come Final Battle, I will throw you around like a little kid, and I will beat you for that ROH World Championship! I’ll bring honor back to this title, and I will be the NEW ROH World Champion!” Fans like the sound of that! But will December 10th be Claudio’s final battle as a pro-wrestler?

 

Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

Renee Paquette sits with the former champion, and knows she and Hayter had an amazing match at Full Gear. Unfortunately, Toni did lose the title. But Renee wants to talk about how Hayter won. Toni says deep down, she’s actually proud. She always knew Hayter could do it, and at Full Gear, they tore the house down. And they got to see just how tough Hayter is. But we didn’t see Jamie Hayter beat Toni Storm, she needed Britt & Rebel again. And if Hayter can look in the mirror and be cool with that, fine. But Toni could never do that. And that’s the difference between them.

Renee steers things to the news from Dynamite that there is no more “interim” and even Toni’s reign counts as a true world title reign, what is her reaction? Well just look at Toni’s face. She never saw the title as “interim.” She went out there, week after week, holding onto the title as if it was always official, because that is what this division deserves. Then with all of these things, what’s next? Toni broke her face losing the belt, she’ll break it again to get it back. When will the Lightning From Down Under strike back against the Hayter?

The Relentless Icons won another big PPV tag match, but they’re not slowing down here! Will Darby get back on the singles track against one half of the Workhorsemen?

The bell rings and Darby stares Henry down. Fans rally for Darby, he and Henry slowly circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Henry arm-drags. Darby holds on, fight sup, and arm-drags back.

Backstage interview with Athena.

Lexi Nair notes that The Fallen Goddess is back from suspension, and Athena asks why was she suspended! “We have this big ass TV, a billionaire boss, modern technology, but yet no footage. What am I supposed to do? I got docked a week’s pay, I’ve been suspended, what else do you need from me?” Maybe an apology to referee, Aubrey Edwards? Oh! A public apology! Well, sorry. Oh, then she’ll be reinstated for Monday. Good, dismissed. Athena scares Lexi off, and then talks to the camera. “I was wondering how long it was going to take you to show up, Mercedes. I beat trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler, and finally you show up!

“So when are you gonna put the ROH Women’s Championship on the line? Cuz I’m waiting, and I’m game.” The Fallen Goddess is aiming for the OG Badass, but will she be the one shot down?

Wait, before the match begins, The Bunny and Penelope Ford frolic their way out here. What do they have with Shida? Aminata just CLOBBERS her from behind in the distraction!

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

Well, more like this afternoon’s. But the World’s Strongest Man says it was a tag match originally, but was promoted to a Trios Match given the history between LFI and Dark Order. But uh, where’s Preston Vance? John Silver says they really have no idea. Evil Uno is searching, but Alex Reynolds promises Number Ten will be here. The LFI have been annoying the crap out of them for months, so this ends here! But Braxton “The Blade” Sutter says, “Nah nah nah nah! Listen, newsflash, slick! It doesn’t matter if Ten shows up, Fourteen, 26, 37! All we know is the three of us are here to kick ass!”

And Andy “The Butcher” Williams says Blade ain’t lying, there WILL be an ass-kicking party tonight! The only ones invited are The Dark Order! Rush says he is sick and tired of talking, he wants to fight! He is ready to fight! He NEEDS to fight! “Let’s go, perros!” Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will El Toro, Butcher & Blade be satisfied with just Three & Four? Or will Vance come through and back up his friends?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Lexi Nair congratulates them on their title defense, adding to their amazing year. Dax says yes, it has been a great year. But please, let him and Cash handle it from here. Dax says, “What a great ’22 it’s been. I’m told I’ve got 30 seconds. What a great ’22 it’s been, and this is my best friend in the world and I love him more than anybody else, aside from maybe my family. And we have a great legacy as a tag team, but 2022 has done something for me that no other year has done. It has allowed me to etch my name with the greatest wrestlers in the world, so right now, I gotta shoot my shot before the year is done, okay?

“I am challenging for Wednesday night, I challenge the best wrestler in the world. What do you say, Bryan Danielson, huh? Me and you, Wednesday night. Top Guys, out.” This match is NOW official! Will Dax the Ax slay the American Dragon?

 

Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS Rush, The Butcher & The Blade w/ LFI!

Preston Vance may be Number Ten, but he’s been the number one prospect for La Faccion Ingobernable. But he’s also been resisting their offers because of loyalties to the Dark Order. Will he come through for Alex Reynolds & John Silver? Or will El Toro Blanco and his mercenaries make him pay for being so stubborn?

As the Dark Order make their entrance, there is no Number Ten, so this looks to be 3v2. The bell rings, and the brawl is on 3v2! Silver gets mugged and thrown out but Reynolds takes it to Blade! Rush ROCKS Silver, he and Butcher whip Silver into railing! Blade whips Reynolds but Reynolds dodges in the corner to elbow smash! Reynolds keeps moving, FLYING ELBOW and a BOOT! Fans fire up but Butcher anchors Reynolds. Blade CLOBBERS Reynolds, drags him up and puts him in the corner. Blade CHOPS, Rush pulls Reynolds’ hair, and Butcher tags in. They mug Reynolds with a DOUBLE HEADBUTT!

Fans fire up with the Meat Man, and he runs to DIVE onto Butcher! But Butcher catches him and feeds him to Rush’s HAYMAKER! LFI drags Silver up to put in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

Blade rains down fists, then he tags in Butcher. Butcher stomps Silver, drags him up, and then throws him out! Rush has the spare cables to LASH Silver! And then CHOKE him! The ref is busy keeping Reynolds back and Rush gets away with choking Silver! Rush drags Silver up and CHOPS him, the ref reprimands that, so Rush puts Silver in. Butcher bumps Silver off buckles, CHOPS him more, then stalks him as he crawls on the mat. Butcher brings Silver over, tags in Blade, and the mercs mug Silver. Blade stands Silver up to ROCK him with a right but Silver throws body shots! Silver THROWS Blade out!

Silver crawls but Rush storms in to kick him down. Rush kicks Silver but Silver BOOTS Rush! But Blade trips Reynolds off the apron! Blade hurries away and Butcher CLOBBERS Reynolds! Blade puts Silver in the corner, Rush runs to jump and BOOT! Rush tranquilos while the ref reprimands them all. Blade drags Silver up to KICK him in the back. Blade clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Silver down. Silver endures, fights up, and throws body shots over and over! Silver then KICKS and KICKS and ROCKS Blade! Silver runs, but Blade CLOBBERS him! Tag to Butcher and Butcher drags Silver up to CHOP back down!

Butcher stalks Silver to ropes, drags him back up, and CLUBS him back down. Butcher CHOKES Silver on ropes, and Rush tranquilos while digging his boot in! The ref reprimands them both, Butcher lets off and Rush shrugs. Rampage returns to single picture and Blade tags in. The mercs drag Silver up, fireman’s carry and TOSS, but Silver blocks the kick! Silver spins Blade, SUPERKICKS Butcher, then gets around Blade to STANDING SLICED BREAD! Fans fire up for Silver as he crawls over, but Rush CLOBBERS Reynolds! Fans boo but Rush looms over Silver. Rush kicks Silver around, stomps him, but lets off to argue with the ref.

Bunny talks trash on Silver but here come Uno, Negative One and… YES, NUMBER TEN!! Vance runs to the ring, he gets right up in Rush’s face, and… He CLOBBERS Silver!! Fans boo as Vance is no longer loyal to Dark Order! The mercs hold Uno back, Rush hits BULL’S HORNS on Silver!! Cover, LFI win!! Then Uno is sent hard into the steps! Reynolds rushes in at Vance but Rush CLOBBERS him first! Feed to the DISCUS!! Negative One can’t believe it! His best friend uses his father’s move in this betrayal! Vance flips off Chicago, and Rush drags Uno into the ring. Uno pleads with Vance, but Vance stands him up, for a DISCUS!!

Fans are booing harder as Rush & Vance RIP UP Uno’s mask! They then bring a table to ringside! Reynolds is brought over, Vance and Rush drag him up on the apron, DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM through the table!! Chicago is thunderous with boos and jeers as Vance puts up the Ingobernable fist! Vance walks up the ramp, Negative One asks why, but Vance just throws the mask down at his feet! Number Ten is no more, Preston Vance has shown his true colors! Will this be a new era for LFI in AEW?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage, especially for being on at a different time (blame NHL if you wanted this to be on later). FTR VS Top Flight was a great opener, but I figured FTR would win. Ass Boys/Gunn Sons showing up at the end was also a natural move, they’ve been slowly (perhaps too slowly) building to FTR VS Gunns for the ROH World Tag titles and Final Battle is definitely the place to do that. Hell, it’ll be even more obvious should Austin & Colten do something during Dax VS Bryan on Dynamite next week. And speaking of Final Battle, no offense to Claudio, it might’ve just been Chicago being rowdy, but that promo with Jericho wasn’t as crisp as it should’ve been. Jericho VS Claudio II with the stipulation of Claudio joining JAS if he loses is a nice move, and definitely makes it feel like either guy could win.

Great match from Darby VS Henry, but I’m surprised nothing really came of it. I suppose there’s a way to give us Relentless Icons VS Workhorsemen, even though I don’t know what that really does for Darby & Sting. Good promo from Toni Storm, and it was clear that she broke her nose with the puffy black eyes she had. Storm isn’t done with Hayter, clearly, but she’ll have to fight her way up to the front of the line. Ford & Bunny showing up during Shida’s match was an interesting tease, I’m just not sure at what. Perhaps Shida bringing her tag team partner, Ibuki Hoshi, to bring Ice Ribbon Wrestling into AEW’s family of partnerships?

And we got great stuff out of the main event. The Dark Order VS LFI in the main event seemed a bit odd, but it foreshadowed something big happening, so of course Vance turns and joins LFI. It is a shame that The Dark Order has fallen so far since the passing of Mr. Brodie Lee, but I suppose it was inevitable. Vance giving up his mask was obviously more symbolic than anything, as The Dark Order had moved away from everyone wearing masks, and it was really just Vance and Uno. Brodie Lee said to wear a mask, Vance was holding onto that for the memory, but now he doesn’t care because he’s been losing. Vance is going to be a strong addition to LFI, he can be their midcard guy while Rush is a top title guy, and this might be what Vance needs to get up to that level.

My Score: 8.6/10
