The Jericho Appreciation Society speaks.
A picture is shown of a very young John Silver, and very young Chris Jericho, at a meet ‘n’ greet. Jericho says, “What a beautiful picture. Such a heartwarming story of a 12-year-old John Silver meeting his hero and his idol, Chris Jericho. And now, in 2022, he actually gets to have a match against The Influencer. Now let’s be honest, Hungy, you just being in the ring with The Big One puts you on a different level. But it doesn’t put you on my level. I’m gonna take you to school tonight, Hungy. And it ain’t gonna be pretty.” Daniel Garcia says that just as they said last week, the JAS beats up pro-wrestlers.
Tonight, Garcia will give us a perfect example as to why a pro-wrestler could never hang in the ring with a sports entertainer like him. Jericho says they will future endeavor the Dark Order, just like they did the traitors, Santana and Ortiz, and that piece of trash, Eddie Kingston! Where even are they? Angelo Parker says he’ll go see. Oh, nothing over here! Matt Menard looks to the other side, still nothing! Hager says they’re not here and they’re never coming back! They wouldn’t dare, because this is the Jericho Appreciation Society, and that? That is entertainment.

Jeff and Darby return to regroup with their tag partners! These extremely relentless icons have shut down the AFO, but who will get to go after El Idolo?
Backstage interview with FTR.
A tremendous opener, very rare for Dax to be in a singles match, but there was also some problems with the Gunn Club. Cash says his best friend and brother, Dax, did what he does every time, and that is wrestle from the heart. But then you’ve got those Ass Boys who think that their dad, Billy, has people’s respect, those two get grandfathered in. No! Those two are still puppies wetting the bed. FTR right here is respect. Dax knows there’s a portion of the audience that don’t really care for FTR, and he gets that. They’ve done nasty things in the past. But there is one thing that 100% of the audience cannot say and that is that FTR are spoiled brats.
One thing FTR can’t stand is spoiled brats! Those boys think they can come into Dax’s business, Dax’s profession, and take Dax’s spots? FTR is the absolute best tag team on the planet, bar none, top to bottom, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, EVERY night! FTR is the best, so Dax won’t even call those two “Ass Boys,” that’s a gimmick name. He’ll call them Billy’s sons. And FTR will see Billy’s sons next week. #TopGuysOut. Strong words from a strong and proven team, but will they prove to Austin & Colten that they are NOT ready for this?
Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson w/ William Regal VS The Varsity Blonds w/ Julia Hart!
The perfect brawler and the perfect wrestler are so far perfect as a tag team at 2-0. They want to mold the future of wrestling through violence, will they do just that with Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr? Or will the Ivy League MVP and Bulletproof BPJ prove the future is now?
Just like last week, Moxley & Bryan don’t wait to sort out, they go right at the Blonds! The Blonds are a bit more ready than Chuck Taylor & Wheeler Yuta were, they all brawl, but Moxley throws Griff out and Bryan KICKS BPJ in the corner. Griff hits Moxley back but Moxley whips him into railing! Bryan keeps on giving KICK after KICK, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Julia Hart seems to sit and sulk, or perhaps meditate, on the ring steps. Bryan whips BPJ and kitchen sink knees him down. Bryan then tags Moxley in, they mug BPJ, and Moxley CLUBS BPJ down. Moxley scoops to SLAM BPJ then run to KICK him down!
BPJ sits up, Moxley scuffs him and CHOPS him! And CHOPS and CHOPS! Moxley runs, but into a dropkick! BPJ tags Griff, Griff runs corner to corner, and he IVY LEAGUE SPLASHES Moxley! Griff throws hands, runs but Moxley blocks the boot! Moxley gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Griff down! Tag to Bryan, they mug Griff now. Griff sputters as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Bryan has a neck wrench but Griff endures, so Bryan headbutts him down. Griff goes to ropes, Bryan brings him up and has the neck wrench again, for another headbutt! Bryan drags Griff by a leg to turn him over, and he hooks the legs up to then get the arms. Moxley tags in before Bryan lifts Griff up into the ROMERO SPECIAL! Bryan lets Griff down enough for Moxley to CHOP him! Griff falls over and Moxley covers, TWO! Moxley drags Griff up to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! Moxley drags Griff up, tags Bryan in, and Moxley hangs Griff out to dry for Bryan’s FLYING KNEE! Cover, TWO!
Bryan clamps onto Griff with a facelock but BPJ rallies the fans. Griff endures and fights up, powers Bryan back, and back drops free! Hot tag to BPJ! BPJ dodges Bryan, CHOPS him, but Bryan EuroUppers! BPJ CHOPS, Bryan EuroUppers, repeat! But then Bryan KICKS away at the leg, only for BPJ to CHOP again! Bryan EuroUppers, whips, but BPJ ducks and dodges to CLOBBER Bryan with a forearm! BPJ fires up, runs in and clotheslines in the corner! Then CHOPS and suplexes for the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives but BPJ drags him back up. BPJ throws forearms in the corner, then runs in, only to be put on the apron!
Bryan forearms but BPJ counter punches! Dynamite returns to single picture as Bryan staggers away. BPJ springboards, into a KICK! Tag to Moxley, they get BPJ up, KING KONG LARIAT GERMAN SUPLEX! And then, PILEDRIVER! Cover, but Griff breaks it! Bryan gets in to EuroUpper Griff then runs, but is sent out hard! Moxley CHOPS Griff, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again! Moxley eggs Griff on and Griff fires forearms! ROLLING- Moxley DECKS Griff! Julia definitely sulks now, and might even be bored. Moxley runs, Griff BOOTS him! Griff hoists Moxley up, BPJ joins in, DROPKICK SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!
BPJ tags Griff and Griff drags Moxley up. BPJ climbs up, but Bryan gets in. Griff swings but misses, Bryan comes back to BUSAIKU KNEE Griff down! BPJ leaps, into a kick! PARADIGM SHIFT! Moxley gets Griff, Bryan has BPJ! HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS, alongside the DANIELSON STOMPS!! Bryan then drags BPJ into the LeBelle Lock while Moxley wraps Griff in the REAR NAKED CHOKE! Griff taps, Moxley & Bryan win!
Winners: Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson, by submission
The Maniac and the American Dragon slay another team and Regal says that was incredible. Regal joins his students in the ring, and Moxley gets the mic. “I am a very, very lucky man. I am very blessed. I’ve been fortunate enough to compete against the best in the world, and I’ve been fortunate enough to compete, to learn from, the best in the world. But there’s only one man whose opinion I’ve ever cared about. His Lordship, William Regal!” Fans cheer that and chant “REGAL! REGAL!” Mox says Regal’s seal of approval is a mark of excellence, a badge of honor, and Moxley earned it! Through pain, through blood, and through torture, and even dislocated joints!
Moxley wears that Blackpool badge of honor with pride! Just like his friend here, the great American Dragon, Bryan Danielson! These two were forged in combat! And as His Lordship said, if you wanna get in the ring and stand across from them, you better step up or get stepped on. But this message is for anybody who thinks they have what it takes to stand beside them! For anyone who thinks they have what it takes to ride with the three most sadistic individuals in this business! There are no free passes. If you have what it takes, reach deep down into your soul and find that place where you love pain! If you want a badge of honor from the Blackpool Combat Club, there’s only one way to get it: the hard way!
MJF is here.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman also has The Chair Man, Shawn Spears, with him as he goes to the ring. And though he lost that Dog Collar Match, MJF is in a great mood because he screwed over Wardlow in last week’s TNT Championship match. MJF already has a mic to have his music cut, and surprise, surprise: the ring has security right up front. MJF says Texas has as many brain cells as they do teeth, and that would be a few, so maybe just pipe down. “Wardlow, Wardlow, Wardlow. It is such a shame that you couldn’t get the job done last week. I mean, really. Especially because unlike you, I’m actually a man of my word.”
MJF says unlike Wardlow- Fans tell him to STFU, but MJF says he honors his business agreements. When he said a few weeks ago that if Wardlow won the TNT title, he could keep it, MJF meant it! That’s why it is so sad Wardlow just isn’t good enough to beat Scorpio Sky. MJF wants to talk to CM Punk now. “CM Punk, I know it, you know it, these white trash hillbilly hicks know it. I had you beat at Revolution, just like I had you beat twice in Chicago. So what did you do? You decided to cheat to win. Let me make something perfectly clear: Don’t know where, don’t know when, but there will be another match. And when there is, I’m gonna give you the most embarrassing loss of your entire career.”
But even then, it won’t be over. MJF says it won’t be over until he attends Punk’s funeral and pisses on Punk’s grave. Spears is the only one amused by that thought. MJF says, “Now to go back to the other spineless coward, the War Dog.” The fans like Wardlow? Well that’s cuz they’re inbred. Wardlow, MJF will start calling him, “Pig.” Because that’s what he is: a greedy little piggy. When MJF first met Wardlow a couple years ago- Fans chant “WARD~LOW!” and MJF says that’s good. They can chant his name, because Wardlow, if not for MJF, not for the contract Wardlow signed nearly three years ago, the people wouldn’t even know who he is!
MJF made Wardlow! When MJF met him, Wardlow didn’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. And thanks to MJF, Wardlow has a beautiful roof over his and his mother’s head. And how does Wardlow repay MJF? By costing him the most important match of his life, and then having the audacity to step into MJF’s ring, speak into MJF’s mic, and ask MJF to release him from the contract? “Listen here, Piggy. You didn’t sign some ferkakta deal with some shmuck. You signed a deal with the devil! And all the devil’s deals are ironclad!” Wardlow thought he had it bad before? MJF is about to make Piggy’s life hell!
If MJF tells Wardlow to jump, he will ask, “How high?” Fans start chanting for the Jesus cosplayer, and MJF says he’ll strap Wardlow to a cross just like Jesus! How about that?! If MJF deems it fit to kick that steak mother of Wardlow’s out of his house, Wardlow can’t say a damn thing, because MJF owns him! MJF owns Wardlow! But here comes Wardlow! MJF gets worried, and security steps up, but gets BODIED! Wardlow DECKS another, but the rest swarm in! MJF wants them to hold Wardlow down, and MJF wants refs! Fans boo as Wardlow is outnumbered. MJF says the little swine doesn’t get it. Wardlow doesn’t work for AEW, he works for MJF!
And MJF doesn’t want Wardlow around no more! So he’s trespassing! That makes him like the marks who hop the barricades! But don’t worry, Piggy, MJF will keep paying Wardlow. Just to stay home! Week after week, month after month, year after year, until all the people forget Wardlow ever existed! And until Wardlow ends up the same way he was the day they met: a nobody! “Have fun in the mud, pig! Take him away!” Wardlow tells security to get off, and he walks out on his own. MJF keeps talking to say he’ll squash rumors now. Some people think The Pinnacle’s over, but that couldn’t be more wrong! Now that the big oaf is out, the Pinnacle has never been better!
And starting next week, FTR in action, The Pinnacle will move up! What do they say about The Pinnacle, Mr. Spears? “When you’re in The Pinnacle, you’re always on top.” MJF and Spears have the most obnoxious grins, but will they really keep Wardlow stuck on the sidelines until he’s a faint memory of the past?
Backstage interview with Best Friends.
Chuck Taylor, Trent and Orange Cassidy stand on one side, Wheeler Yuta’s on the other. Tony Schiavone brings up how last week, Yuta got in William Regal’s face and Regal slapped him back. This is the first time all four Best Friends have been in the same area together, but Trent won’t let Yuta explain. “You know I never liked you. But these guys trained you. They brought you into this company and they let you live on their couch. And you’re gonna repay them by running off and trying to join the William Regal Tough Guy Club? I’m done with you.”
Yuta says he loves Chuck & Cassidy to death. But yeah, he’s never really liked Trent, either. And Yuta isn’t trying to be the best friend he can be. He’s trying to be the best wrestler he can be. So you either get that or you don’t. Yuta storms off, and the others let him. Will the Decoder prove himself worthy of that Blackpool badge of honor on his own?
Adam Cole VS Jay Lethal!
The number four and number three ranked singles competitors in the men’s division clash for the first time in AEW, but they’ve met many times before in ROH, and even for the ROH World Championship. But who gets a very important win that brings them closer to the AEW World Championship and Hangman Adam Page?
The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up and the two tie up. Cole wrenches, wristlocks, but Lethal slips through to wrench back. Cole puts Lethal in the corner, the ref calls the ropebreak, and Cole gets a cheap shot in! Fans rally and duel as Cole fires more forearms and even stomps. Cole wrenches, whips corner to corner, but Lethal reverses to JAB! And CHOP! Lethal follows Cole to the other corner to CHOP again! Cole pushes Lethal but Lethal JABS and JABS and JABS! Lethal winds up to elbow Cole down! Lethal brings Cole up but Cole knees low. Cole throws forearms and Lethal falls against ropes.
Cole ROCKS Lethal again, taunts Letha, then wrenches to whip. Lethal reverses and hip tosses, to then cartwheel and dropkick! Fans fire up with Lethal and he covers, TWO! Lethal clamps on with a rear bearhug and he grinds Cole down. Fans rally, Cole fights up, but Lethal lifts. Cole fights that off, switches, fans duel, and Lethal switches back. Cole breaks free to PELE! Cole runs, but Lethal gets him for a LETHAL COMBINATION! Cole scrambles to ropes and then the apron. Fans rally and Lethal triangle jumps, but Cole ducks the dropkick! Cole smirks and gloats, “BOOM!” But Lethal dropkicks Cole down!
Lethal builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit but Lethal keeps moving! Lethal DIVES again! Another direct hit! Lethal wants the hattrick! Cole knows it and he moves around the corner, but Lethal DIVES over the camera man! Lethal still gets the threepeat, and reDRagon appears on stage to watch. Lethal dares them to come to ringside, and he watches Cole closely as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Lethal keeps his eyes on reDRagon as he backs away, and then he turns around into a BOOT from Cole! The one time he wasn’t looking. Cole refreshes the ring count, drags Lethal up and RAMS him into steel steps! Lethal clutches his arm and Cole cheers himself on. Cole drags Lethal up, puts him in the ring, and he drives elbows into Lethal’s shoulder. Cole drags Lethal up, turns him, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cole dusts his hands off and then drags Lethal back up. Lethal gets a leg for a DRAGON SCREW! But Cole gets up to CLOBBER Lethal! Cole gets to a corner, makes sure his leg is good, then goes back for Lethal.
Cole drags Lethal up, bumps him off buckles, then brings him around. Lethal throws body shots but Cole knees low. Cole bumps Lethal off more buckles then walk off the leg pain. Lethal fires forearms back! But Cole snapmares him for a chinlock. Lethal endures as Cole grinds him down. Lethal fights up, throws body shots, then kicks a leg. Lethal fires a forearm, Cole gives it back. Lethal KICKS a leg, Cole fires another forearm. Lethal KICKS and Cole hobbles, but Cole ROCKS Lethal with a forearm. Dynamite returns to single picture as Lethal shows forearm but KICKS the leg again! Cole fires another forearm, Lethal ENZIGURIS!
Lethal gets the legs, fans fire up and he steps through, but Cole kicks him away! Lethal ends up on the apron, but he slingshots up and over Cole to roll him up! TWO, FIGURE- NO! Cradle counter, TWO! Lethal trips Cole, jackknifes, TWO! But Lethal holds the leg to step through! Cole gets another cradle, TWO! Cole full nelsons but Lethal drops to victory roll, for the FIGURE FOUR! Fans fire up as Cole endures! But reDRagon hurry to ringside as Lethal puts more pressure on. Cole drags himself and Lethal over, ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets Cole free and points out reDRagon. They stay back and Lethal drags Cole in.
Cole holds the apron skirt, the ref reprimands, and the ref is busy with the skirt so Fish gets on the apron! Lethal swipes at Fish, Cole rolls Lethal up! With tights! TWO, and Cole SUPERKICKS Lethal! Lethal drops, Cole brings down the kneepad! But Lethal CUTTERS first!! Fans fire up, Lethal runs and handsprings, into a SUPERKICK! Cole goes to a corner and goes up top, and Lethal flounders up into a PANAMA SUNRISE! Cover, TWO!?! Lethal survives and shocks Cole! Fans are thunderous and dueling as Cole tries to drag Lethal up. Lethal is dead weight but Cole still sits him up. Cole runs, but Lethal ducks the Boom!
Lethal O’Conner Rolls Cole, but reDRagon distracts the ref! Cole kicks out, Lethal handsprings, into a LOW BLOW!! Cole runs to hit THE BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!
Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall
Give a big assist to Kyle & Fish! The number four contender beats the number three, surely they swap in the rankings. Cole gets a mic to then sit up on the corner to say, “There is nobody on the planet who deserves the AEW World Championship more than me! Hangman, he stole my victory at Revolution. And two of the last three matches we’ve had, I’ve won. Because last week, in that Trios Match, when I was pinning Jungle Boy and staring at Hangman Adam Page, I saw fear. Because he knows he’s looking at the man who’s gonna take his world championship.” Cole says Page caught lightning in a bottle at Revolution. Next time, Cole shoves that bottle up Page’s ass.
Cole says HE is a champion! HE is a winner! HE brings the fight. And speaking of, the “world champion,” is a coward. Hangman doesn’t have the guts to come out here to face these three man to man. But here comes the Cowboy! Cole, Fish & O’Reilly are waiting, Hangman gets in the ring, and fans are fired up for some “Cowboy Sh*t!” Hangman puts the world title belt down, takes off his regular belt, and starts SLAPPING Cole, Fish & O’Reilly around! Hangman keeps Kyle from running so he can throw hands, but then Cole LOW BLOWS Hangman! Cole & reDRagon stomp away on Hangman!
Cole grabs the AEW World Championship and brings it over. But here comes Jurassic Express! JB and Luchasaurus, and even Christian Cage, run off Cole & reDRagon, but Cole has the world title in his possession! “It’s mine now, Hangman! Kiss your championship good-bye!” Cole thinks the belt is his already, but will he lose to Hangman like he did at Revolution?
AEW previews Dustin Rhodes VS Lance Archer.
Friday on Rampage, the Natural takes on the Murderhawk Monster! Dan Lambert says, “We have the opportunity to once and for all end the curse of the Rhodes family.” Dustin won’t let Lambert utter the Rhodes name. But Archer says Dustin cannot act like he does not know who Archer is, because they’ve met before. Archer put Dustin down hard, but Dustin says it doesn’t matter if he’s knocked down 1000 times! Dustin gets back up! Archer says Dustin is like everyone else, and #EverybodyDies. But Dustin says Friday night, on Rampage, here in Austin, Texas, Dustin’s home, he’ll kick Archer’s ass! “Because monsters die, too!”
AEW returns with Tony Schiavone in the ring.
He’s already joined by Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti, and Schiavone says last time we saw these two, Paige VanZant attacked Tay during Sammy’s TNT Championship match with Scorpio Sky. Scorpio is the new champion, Paige signed her AEW contract, but how are these two doing after all that? Sammy gets the mic to say Schiavone is right. Three weeks ago, Sammy lost the TNT title. But it is what it is, can’t change what happened, and Sammy may not have the title, but he still has this: this ring. When Sammy’s inside the ring, with or without a belt, Sammy promises to give you a show like you’ve never seen before.
Sammy promises he will do something so crazy, it makes the people who paid money for a ticket to stand up in their seats and chant, “HOLY S*IT!” And Sammy knows, he’s heard it for his whole career, that he can’t keep going like this. The bumps are going to catch up and he’ll pay for this when he’s older. Well if he’s paying for it, then screw it cuz it’s worth it! It’s worth it because of the people! He gets that you have to give something to get something, and with the fans, they are giving him everything he’s wanted in this business. “Until now.” Sammy hands the mic to Tay, and Tay says now, these two want payback!
And Paige, Tay goes off in Portuguese, and then translates it: “BITCH! You’re gonna get your ass kicked, just like you did your whole fighting career!” Sammy gets the mic back to say enough talk, it’s Tay & Sammy VS any two idiots from American Top Team, right now! But Lambert gives them “the lay of the land” as he and the Men of the Year walk out. On their side: All Ego Ethan Page, “literally the only thing Canada has gotten right in who knows how long;” Lambert himself, “the most popular co-TNT Champion of all time;” Paige VanZant, “the biggest free agency signing in the history of AEW,” who had it in her contract that she could avoid crap towns like Austin, Texas!
But if the cellar dwellers can convince their parents to give them an extra $9.99 in their allowance, maybe they can subscribe to her OnlyFans and see just why Orange Cassidy’s keeping his hands in his pockets all the time. And last but not least, the TNT Champion, Scorpio Sky, “a man who has not lost a match since Tony Khan reached puberty over a year ago!” Now on the other side, it’s Tiny Tim and his girlfriend, Lucha-WHORE-rus! American Top Team will stay on top of the combat sports mountain, looking back on all the bodies they’ve buried. So unless Men of the Year are gonna give Sammy & Tay what they’re after…
Nope, Men of the Year laugh their way to the back. Yeah, that answers that. Kiss their payback good-bye. And Lambert kisses his TNT belt. But Tay and Sammy tell Lambert that they’re living rent free in his head since he go there, but if he only knew what Tay & Sammy did while wearing those belts… He’d know they now live in his mouth, too. WHOA! Lambert is disgusted, but he still carries that belt at a distance. Will Tay & Sammy find a way to get at Paige and whoever they can from American Top Team?
AEW previews the coming FTW Championship match.
Swerve Strickland says, “Hey yo, Ricky! Baby boy. All the little sweet talking that you’re doing, especially about the new talent that’s coming into AEW, taking over your supposed show. Nah, I’m not with that. So, since we’re going to be in your hometown this week, this Friday on Rampage, Swerve isn’t only just gonna take your pride away from you… He’s going to take the FTW Championship away.”
Starks responds with, “So let me get this straight. Swerve, you’re gonna challenge me in my second home of Austin, Texas, for the FTW title, huh? I’ma go ahead and grant your wish. So how about you show up, and you can bring Keith Lee if you want to, cuz I got ‘Powerhouse’ Hobbs behind me. Because there’s only one way to do it, and that’s the Absolute Way.” Swerve says this won’t be done in Starks’ hometown. It’ll be in whose house? Swerve’s House. Will there be a new FTW Champion after these two charismatic stars collide?
Red Velvet VS Leyla Hirsch!
It’s a rematch from Rampage but with a special caveat: Kris Statlander is barred from ringside! The irony is that Statlander made sure Leyla kept things #LEGIT and didn’t use the spare crossbar like she did at Revolution. Will Leyla get away with it this time? Or will The Chef see that coming and give Leyla what she deserves?
Velvet gets on the apron and Leyla BOOTS her! So much for keeping things fair! Leyla goes out, CLUBS Velvet, the ref reprimands but Leyla whips, only for Velvet to reverse! Leyla crashes into railing, then Velvet CHOPS her! Velvet whips Leyla to the other side hard! Velvet brings Leyla up again, to whip, but Leyla reverses to send Velvet into railing harder! The ref tells Leyla to get this in the ring, but Leyla runs at Velvet, only to get an elbow! Velvet then goes up the steel steps to FLYING RANA! Leyla tumbles and fans fire up! Velvet drags Leyla up and puts her in the ring, this is finally a match!
Velvet bumps Leyla off buckles, fires off body shots with that boxing background, then she stomps a mudhole! Velvet does the splits as she digs in her boot, then she drags Leyla to center for stomps. STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, but Leyla turns it right into a gut wrench suplex! Fans boo as Leyla covers, ONE! Leyla is annoyed, Velvet hits back but Leyla CLUBS Velvet as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Leyla drags Velvet up and carries her in the gut wrench before the suplex! Cover, TWO! Leyla is annoyed again but she taunts Velvet. Velvet SLAPS Leyla! Leyla drags Velvet down to rain down fists! Leyla lets off and looms over Velvet, stalks her to a corner, then drags her up. Leyla stomps Velvet, digs her boots in now, and lets off as the ref counts. Leyla runs back in to METEORA, and SWINGING DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Leyla smirks, pushes Velvet around, then avoids the body shots. Velvet makes contact with the next shot, but Leyla BOOTS her down! Leyla soaks up the heat and paces around Velvet.
Velvet kicks from below but Leyla puts her on ropes to dig her knee in! The ref counts, Leyla lets off at 4, and Velvet sputters. Leyla smirks and backs off. Velvet sits up and Leyla taunts her, but Velvet hits back! Leyla and Velvet scrap on the mat! Leyla CLUBS Velvet but Velvet throws body shots. Leyla ducks the clothesline to back suplex! Cover, TWO! Leyla is annoyed again but she wraps on a body scissors! Leyla squeezes Velvet, wraps on a chinlock and throws some short crossface forearms. Velvet endures as Leyla keep son the chinlock, and then Leyla focuses on the body scissors.
Velvet endures and elbows the legs. Leyla shifts to a rear bearhug as Dynamite returns to single picture. Velvet pries free, and JAWBREAKERS Leyla! But Leyla gets around, back suplex, but Velvet lands on her feet! Velvet shoves then follows to rally with LARIATS! Leyla gets up but into an arm-drag! Leyla ends up on ropes, Velvet runs to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet dares Leyla to get up now, but Leyla pushes back. Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves, ROCKS Leyla with a right, then kicks out the leg, CHEF’S KISS HEEL KICK! Leyla wobbles, Velvet runs, but Leyla catches the springboard for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!
Leyla goes from annoyed to frustrated and she drags Velvet to a drop zone. Leyla goes up, but Velvet CLUBS her first! Velvet turns Leyla around, ROCKS her, then has the arms! ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO!! Leyla survives and now Velvet is frustrated. Velvet tunes up the band, or perhaps preheats the oven? SCREW HIGH KICK! But Leyla rolls away to the apron before Velvet can cover! Velvet goes after Leyla, but Leyla CLUBS her and HOTSHOTS her arm in the ropes! Leyla then gets the spare crossbar! But she also hides something else in her trunks! Leyla gets in the ring, but the ref sees the crossbar!
The ref takes the obvious crossbar away, but Leyla uses the hidden tool for a WRENCH SHOT!! Cover, Leyla wins!
Winner: Leyla Hirsch, by pinfall
Again, anything but #LEGIT! But Leyla isn’t done with Velvet, either! She rains down forearms, then puts on the ARMABAR!! The ref reprimands but it doesn’t matter that Velvet taps! Here comes KRIS! No more ringside ban, she RAMS Leyla into the corner! And again and again! Kris fires off forearms, then TOSSES Leyla across the way! Leyla bails out and Kris goes back to check on Velvet. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien’s new form be what finally humbles Hirsch?
Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling.
Schiavone is with the still undefeated AEW TBS Champion, and “Smart Mark,” as Jade prepares for that 30th win. But who is her opponent? They’re not here to talk about that. Jade wants to talk about after the match. She’s already planning a huge celebration for going 30-0. Mark, take notes. They need money falling from the ceiling, green confetti, and green Lamborghinis. It’s going to be so much better than… Who was that girl Jade beat? Thunder Rosa. Right, whatever. But most importantly, Jade wants some fine, fine exotic dancers. And a section for her baddies, they can’t be anywhere else.
But what is Jade gonna wear? She needs to be in something fit for a champion! Nobody is like her. Green trim and… Well, she’ll keep brainstorming, Mark will keep taking notes, and Schiavone… Just cut the sh*t. Mark says you heard it hear first, a celebration fit for a queen. But will Jade overlook her competition and lose her throne before she knows it?
Tony Schiavone is on stage.
This is a very special moment for many, let’s bring out the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa!! Austin is all fired up as La Mera Mera is here. But then Vickie Guerrero shrieks, “EXCUSE ME!” She tells Schiavone to get out of her way, and then she tells Rosa that she may think of herself as a leader, and she’ll give a little bit of credit. Fans are booing and Vickie shouts, “I SAID EXCUSE ME!” Rosa sarcastically agrees that the fans should be more polite. Vickie continues to tell Rosa that Rosa does show up bright and early on Wednesday mornings. But as far as being a Texan, do NOT insult Vickie’s state!
Vickie says Rosa can take her fake green card, start the backstroke, and return to Mexico! Rosa gets herself a mic and tells Vickie that first of all, she got her US citizenship in the state of Texas. Vickie shouts, “EXCUSE MEEEE” and says Rosa is hysterical if she thinks that means anything. And then NYLA ROSE attacks from behind! Vickie laughs as her Native Beast mauls Rosa! “THIS is a true champion! And her name is Nyla Rose! And make no mistake, she is hungrier and thirstier for this title.” Nyla gets her taste of La Mera Mera, but will she finally sink her teeth back into the title?
Chris Jericho & Daniel Garcia w/ The JAS VS John Silver & Alex Reynolds w/ The Dark Order!
The Jericho Appreciation Society is finally in action as The Influencer and Red Death are in action together. They claim to be sports entertainers, and claim they’ll beat up any pro-wrestlers, but will they be able to take down the #1 contenders in the AEW Tag Division? Or will the first wrestlers getting beat up be the Beaver Boys?
While Jericho & Garcia have Hager, Menard & Parker backing them up, Numbers 3 and 4 have 5 and 10, Alan Angels & Preston Vance. Fans still sing Judas for Jericho, and Jericho still allows it. But Menard says the fans do not appreciate the fact Jericho allows the fans to sing that song! As far as Menard is concerned, there should be no singalong! But with that said, “Daddy Magic,” “Cool Hand Ange” and “Rock Hard Hager” hop out of the ring. The teams sort out, fans chant for “JOHNNY HUNGY!” as he starts against Jericho. Jericho shows off the abs but Silver shows off the guns!
Jericho pats Silver on the head, and the shoulder, and says HE is Silver’s hero. He is Chris Jericho! Then he pie faces Silver! So Silver ROCKS Jericho with haymakers! Fans fire up, Sliver whips, then runs Jericho over! And then CLOBBERS him with an uppercut! Then scoop SLAMS, and does the cocky Jericho cover! ONE, but Silver grins at a flustered Jericho. Jericho runs into an arm-drag! Silver has the armlock and fans rally up. Silver drags Jericho over, tag to Reynolds, and they double whip Jericho to then double drop toehold and double basement dropkick! Fans rally, Silver KICKS, Reynolds uppercuts, repeat!
Silver & Reynolds double whip again, Jericho holds ropes and bails out! The fans boo but Silver goes out after Jericho to KICK him down! Silver drags Jericho up to suplex while Reynolds build speed, TOPE BRAINBUSTER! Fans fire up as Silver & Reynolds get back in. Garcia runs at them, but into a FLAPJACK UPPERCUT! Then Silver & Reynolds strike the Dark Order hand pose! Jericho is furious and he kicks the steel steps! But then he plays like he got hit, and both Menard and Parker claim Vance and Angels did that! The ref isn’t sure who to trust, so she EJECTS Vance and Angels! Fans boo but JAS is in control as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
While the ref is busy arguing with Silver, Garcia stomps away on Reynolds! Garcia roars, Jericho gets back in, and they have Reynolds in the corner. Reynolds rams Garcia with a shoulder but Jericho CLUBS Reynolds. The JAS mugs Reynolds, Jericho CHOPS Reynolds in the corner. And again! And again, and again! Jericho stomps away on Reynolds but the ref counts. Jericho lets off to flip off the fans. Jericho then goes back to Reynolds but Reynolds throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! And runs, into a haymaker! Jericho drags Reynolds up to throw out of the ring, and he distracts the ref so the JAS can mug Reynolds on the outside!
Silver protests but the JAS is getting away with all of it! Garcia drags Reynolds and puts him in for Jericho. Jericho brings Reynolds up for a BIG back suplex! Jericho has the cocky cover, TWO! Jericho keeps Reynolds from Silver, scoops and SLAMS him, then goes to the corner. Jericho climbs up, Reynolds stands and Silver warns him, but Jericho still leaps, into a dropkick! Fans fire up as both men are down! Silver and Reynolds reach for each other while Jericho flounders. Hot tag to Garcia, and he elbows Reynolds down! Garcia drags Reynolds up to SAIDO! Cover, TWO! But Garcia still flexes on Silver.
Garcia throws an uppercut to put Reynolds in the corner, then he stomps a mudhole in him. The ref counts, Garcia digs his boots in, but Jericho tags in. Dynamite returns to single picture, Jericho drags Reynolds up to put him on ropes. Jericho digs his knee in, he lets off as the ref counts 4, and Garcia gets a shot in. Jericho makes Reynolds stand up but Reynolds throws body shots and forearms! Reynolds runs, but into Jericho’s throat chop! Fans boo but Jericho runs to LIONSAULT FLOP! Reynolds avoids the impact, crawls to his corner, hot tag to Silver! Silver rallies on Jericho, whips him to ropes, and FLAPJACKS!
Garcia runs in, but he’s thrown right into ropes! Garcia tumbles out, Silver mockingly applauds, and then goes back for Jericho. Silver whips, Jericho holds ropes and dumps Silver out! Silver lands on the apron, Jericho ROCKS him first, then triangle jumps, into a GAMANGIRI! Silver knows Jericho too well! Silver then CANNONBALLS onto Garcia, he CLOBBERS Menard, BOOTS Parker, and runs at Hager, to RANA him away! Silver then goes up top and fans are thunderous! CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but Silver fires off KICK after KICK to SUPERKICK! Silver fires up, ROLLING- CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!!
Jericho can’t believe Silver survives! Jericho rains down fists but fans rally for Silver. Jericho drags Silver over, tags Garcia, and they CHOP and CHOP and double whip. Jericho whips Garcia so Garcia can whip Jericho in, but Silver tosses Jericho out! Garcia runs in, Reynolds tags and Silver dodges! Garcia hits buckles to get the ROUNDHOUSE to ROLLING ELBOW! GAMANGIRI, STUNNER and GERMAN SUPLEX! Jackknife bridge, TWO!!! Garcia survives the Beaver Boy Blitz and Hager is on the apron! Hager shouts to Garcia, but Silver DECKS Hager! He DECKS Menard and DECKS Parker, too!
Silver then DIVES onto Hager, but gets caught for a POWERSLAM! The ref missed it all while checking on Garcia! Reynolds goes for Garcia, but gets brought down into a cradle! TWO!! Pop-up KNEE from Reynolds! Reynolds runs, but into FLOYD THE BASEBALL BAT!! Jericho gets away with it because Garcia distracts the ref again! And then Garcia drags Reynolds around by his legs, for a SHARPSHOOTER!! Reynolds endures as Garcia sits deep!! Reynolds taps, JAS wins!!
Winners: Chris Jericho & Daniel Garcia, by submission
The Jericho Appreciation Society used teamwork and shenanigans to cheat the Dark Order out of this one! Is this a sign that the JAS will take over AEW?
A very good AEW, and quite the surprise that CM Punk wasn’t just back, but in the opener with Dax Harwood. That was an awesome match, especially for Dax as a singles guy. He used the Sharpshooter, that’s definitely a tease of the rumors where Bret Hart is coming back to AEW to replace Tully as their manager. Then the interactions with Gunn Club, the promo FTR had backstage, that’ll be a great tag match, and I bet Bret will show up after. MJF of course had a very good promo to respond to everything that’s happened since Revolution. MJF of course still wants after Punk, but it was a clever move on his part to handle Wardlow by forcing Wardlow to stay away. I bet Wardlow finds a way to defy his contract and attack in like the parking lot. Fitting, since his vignettes took place in a parking lot.
We got a great 8 Man Tag, but it was rather tricky having things happen in multiple locations as far as all the camera cuts. Great table spots in both locations, though. I figured the Faces would win, and now Andrade will have to fight for himself now. That could go either way, as Andrade could easily cheat and win and stay strong as the new leader of the faction. We got a great match out of Moxley & Bryan VS Varsity Blonds. A great detail was Julia acting very differently. Between this and her new attitude in her matches on AEW Dark, it’s all the more clear she’ll join House of Black. Moxley & Bryan of course win, Moxley has a great promo that tentatively names the faction, and with Yuta’s promo with Best Friends, Yuta is definitely becoming the first recruit.
Great previews for Rampage. Dustin VS Archer is going to be great, especially given their original match during the early days of pandemic. The FTW Championship is going to be just as great, and I’d love if Swerve won that belt. At some point, that belt has to leave Team Taz, even for just a second, and Swerve is a great guy to show his FTW side. We got a very good match from Velvet and Leyla, but of course Leyla cheats to win this time. Once again, Kris Statlander gets involved, her rematch with Leyla is coming and maybe they should make it No Disqualification just so Kris can get even with Leyla with her own brutal weapon shot.
Rosa had a good segment with Vickie and Nyla, though Vickie may have been too overbearingly shrill. I thought Nyla was going to be TBS contender but I suppose she’s still Heel, so she’ll skip that to go for the top title. Nyla will give Rosa a great first defense, but I’m thinking Rosa wins. Speaking of the TBS Championship, Jade is so confident she’ll get the 30th win, I almost feel like this sets her up for her huge first loss. I can’t wait to see who they get, but it needs to be a big name to make it all worth it. We got a fairly good promo segment with Sammy, Tay, and Lambert, and while Lambert goes for long hanging fruit, he kinda gets karma for Sammy & Tay implying very lewd things happening with the belt. We’re definitely getting Sammy & Tay VS Paige & Vanderford.
We got a great match out of Cole VS Lethal, but I feel like Cole didn’t need reDRagon to help him out there. I suppose it is more for Heel heat as Cole goes into the obvious rematch with Hangman, that he will surely lose because he was standing tall here and he stole the belt. Likewise, Jurassic Park make the save because they and reDRagon will be facing off for the tag titles, but that could go either way. It’d be pretty cool if reDRagon became the only team to have held IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag, ROH World Tag, NXT Tag and AEW World Tag Team Championships.
The JAS had a good group promo, though the only “Sports Entertainer” term was “future endeavor.” We did get a great main event with Jericho & Garcia making a great team against an already great team in Silver & Reynolds. I can’t say their in-ring style screams “Sports Entertainer,” other than perhaps Jericho pulling an Eddie Guerrero with the steps. Other than that, the distractions and cheating were the same as any Heel faction anywhere, and of course that is how JAS wins. JAS could easily go through more members of the Dark Order to build up their momentum and tag rankings, but totally expect Kingston, Santana & Ortiz to show up for revenge.
My Score: 8.8/10

“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. They go around, Hardy puts JB on the ropes, but JB turns it around, and they end up in a corner. Hardy lets off, and he has Ethan stay back, because he can handle this. Fans rally and duel more, the two tie up again, and Hardy waistlocks. JB wrenches free to a wristlock, but Hardy wrenches back. Hardy ELBOW BREAKERS again and again, shouting “DLETE! DELETE!” each time. But JB rolls and wrenches back to wristlock again.
Hardy drops to a knee, but he fights up to wrench and headlock. JB arm-drags free and has a top wristlock. Hardy headscissors to bring JB down, but JB kips free. They go again, Hardy headlocks, but JB powers out. Hardy runs JB over, fans rally and things keep moving. JB blocks the hip toss to body shot, get a leg up and flip through, to then dodge Hardy’s haymaker. JB DROPKICKIS Hardy down and kips up! Fans fire up and JB copies the V1 finger just a moment. 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! Ethan fires up, but Hardy runs into a DROPKICK! JB fires up and so do the fans! JB goes to a corner, climbs up, but Ethan distracts! The ref reprimands, but Hardy ROCKS JB first! Hardy climbs up, brings JB in, and hits a SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Wait, is that…? IT’S HOOK! The Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil has seen enough of Ethan messing around, and they brawl at the ramp! Hardy goes after Hook, Ethan swings, but HITS HARDY!!
Fans fire up, Hook fires off on Ethan and backs him up the ramp! JB DIVES onto Hardy! Direct hit! JB puts Hardy in and hurries up top, for a leap, into a kick! Hardy reels JB in, TWIST- NO, BACKSLIDE! TWO, and Hardy clinches! SIDE- NO, arm-drag! SUPERKICK! Hardy wobbles, into a COMPLETE SHOT! JB keeps moving, BLINDSIDER LARIAT! Cover, JB wins!
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!

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!

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?

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?

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?

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 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!
Cole goes to a corner, goes up, and Garcia crawls over. Cole leaps, PANAMA- NO, Garcia back drops it! Cole tries to sunset flip it but Garcia has the legs! Step through, DRAGONTAMER!! Cole endures as Garcia sits deep! Cole crawls forward, reaches out, even as Garcia makes it a CALF KILLER! ROPEBREAK!! The ref counts, Garcia lets go quickly, but in frustration. Fans rally behind Cole but that upsets Garcia. Cole goes to a corner, the ref has Garcia stay back so he can check Cole. Garcia just soaks up the heat in the meantime. Cole crawls back out, Garcia reels him back in! Garcia tucks the arms, STRAITJACKET PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?!?
Garcia is furious but the fans are thunderous that Cole survives! Cole goes to a corner, Garcia runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Cole goes back up, PANAMA SUNRISE!! But Cole isn’t done! Garcia sits up in a daze, Cole runs and BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!!
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

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/28/23)
QTV gets Dark!
QTV is in Universal Studios!
After helping Will Hobbs hold onto the AEW TNT Championship, QT Marshall & Aaron Solo get back in action! Will this be one for the headlines?
- AR Fox VS Nick Comoroto; Fox wins.
- Queen Aminata VS Skye Blue; Skye wins.
- Evil Uno VS Alexander Moss; Uno wins.
- Marina Shafir VS Steph De Lander; Shafir wins.
- Zack Clayton VS Schaff; Clayton wins.
- Top Flight VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; Top Flight wins.
- QT Marshall & Aaron Solo w/ Harley Cameron VS Austin Green & Vary Morales; QT & Solo win.
- Brady Booker VS Serpentico; Brady wins.
- Konosuke Takeshita VS Cole Karter; Konosuke wins.
A good line-up here. Just as I was wondering where Nick Comoroto was, he’s here on Dark to put AR Fox over. 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.
