Chris Jericho heads to the ring!

Le Champion’s letting his hair down as Fort Myers sings Judas for him. The Demo God didn’t win at Revolution against The Mad King, and he didn’t show Eddie Kingston the respect he promised, either! Jericho gets the mic, and he asks, “Are you ready for Dynamite? Last Sunday at Revolution was literally one of the greatest nights of my professional career. And even though my neck is still stiff and sore, and even though I lost to Eddie Kingston by tapping out to the Stretch Plum, it was still one of the best matches I have ever had in my career, and maybe one of the best matches I’ve ever had in AEW period.”

Jericho thanks Kingston for that. Kingston awakened something in Jericho he didn’t think was still there. Jericho says that he wasn’t sure this still existed in him. “But when it came down to it, after he won the big one and beat Chris Jericho, I didn’t live up to my word, and my word is everything. I refused to shake his hand.” The fans booing is just the same as Jericho’s reaction. Fans chant, “Shake His Hand!” and Jericho says he wants to. He was frustrated and angry so he needs to make it up to Kingston. Kingston won, he deserves Jericho’s respect so Jericho wants to pay his debt. If Kingston is back there, Jericho wants to apologize face to face.

Kingston makes his way out, fans chant for him, and Kingston gets in the mic. Kingston has the music cut, and he tells the fans that they’re gonna get real deep here. “The Friday night before the show, before the PPV, before the biggest match of my career, I didn’t want to show up. I wanted to go out and drink, I wanted to forget about my problems, I wanted the poison that has eaten me for years to do it again.” Jericho got in Kingston’s head about if he could win. He’s lost to Moxley, to Bryan, to Punk, to Miro, to everyone he’s faced in big matches. Kingston was afraid. But at Fan Fest, and please show some respect, Fort Myers. Austin ain’t here, don’t do that.

But seriously, anyway, Kingston isn’t kissing anyone’s asses, but when he had four separate people tell him they didn’t end their lives because they read his article, did you really think Kingston was gonna miss that PPV? Do you understand? After the match, Kingston went to his hotel room, you can laugh at him and he’ll beat you up about this, but he cried in his room. That’s because Kingston wanted to make those people proud. Not Jericho, not himself, those people. Fans cheer for that one! All Kingston can say is, as emotional as he’s getting, for those fans who were there, Kingston hopes he did you proud.

But now to the other issue. That handshake wasn’t for Kingston. He didn’t need the handshake, he needed the win. That handshake was for Jericho. What is Jericho missing inside that made him not want to do that? Kingston doesn’t see that as his problem, that looks like a Jericho problem. Kingston went in there, showed Jericho respect by dragging out the man who Kingston looked up to. The one in Japan, the J Cup, who faced the great Eddie Guerrero, the great Dean Malenko, the man Kingston respect. Lionheart Jericho! And y’know what? No matter what anyone says in the back, on Twitter, Jericho proved Kingston wrong because he is still number one.

BUT! Is that enough to fill that hole to make Jericho wanna shake Kingston’s hand or show Kingston respect? That’s the question Jericho has to answer now. Jericho says that everything Kingston just said is right. He has been obsessing about this the last two nights, so Jericho asks Kingston to hear him out. Jericho respects Kingston, he has his undying respect, and thanks him for giving him one of the best matches of his career, and Jericho would be honored if Kingston forgot about all that other stuff and shakes his hand. Jericho holds it out, Kingston takes it, and the two shake hands.

But wait, 2point0 and Daniel Garcia storm out o ruin the moment! And they rush the ring! They go after these two like they did a few months ago! They knock Jericho down easy because of the bad neck, then they mug Kingston 3v1! But here come Santana & Ortiz! Ortiz even has Floyd the Baseball Bat! Santana TACKLES Garcia and Ortiz runs off Jeff Parker & Matt Lee using Floyd! Santana stomps Garcia around, brings him up for 2point0 to see! Jericho gets Floyd from Ortiz, swings at 2point0, then HITS SANTANA?!?! And then ORTIZ!??! And now 2point0 & Garcia are working with Jericho?!?! What is this?!?

Jericho keeps hitting Ortiz, here comes JAKE HAGER! Big Hurt doesn’t understand what this is about! What happened to the Inner Circle?! Hager… CLOBBERS Ortiz?!?! Hager follows Le Champion and rains down forearms on Santana & Ortiz! Ortiz gets a DOUBLE IMPALER DDT from 2point0! Garcia puts Santana in a SHARPSHOOTER! Fans boo and jeer but 2point0 drags Kingston up while Proud ‘n’ Powerful are moved aside. Jericho SLAPS Kingston, then JAMS him with Floyd! But this still isn’t the end! Hager throws off his Inner Circle vest, 2point0 bring the timekeeper’s table over, and Hager hauls Kingston up!

Jericho helps Hager POWERBOMB Kingston through the table!! Jericho throws off the Inner Circle vest as well, and those are placed over Santana and Ortiz. “This is the Jericho Appreciation Society! And that… That’s entertainment.” The Inner Circle has been replaced, have they left Kingston, Santana and Ortiz for dead?


AEW shares CM Punk’s post match comments from Revolution.

“If there’s anybody in the locker room thinking they want the old CM Punk back, think twice.” Punk brutalized and was brutalized in the Dog Collar Match with MJF, but he didn’t quit. Punk needs to detox from all the ghosts and skeletons because he had to go to a place he didn’t want to and become a guy he doesn’t want to be. Punk will be picking the tacks out of his own skin, and will be picking the dry blood out of his ears for weeks. “That CM Punk is dead. Long live CM Punk.” Now that the Best in the World has gotten past the Salt of the Earth, what will he look for next?


AEW World Championship: Hangman Page VS Dante Martin!

Don’t worry, you’re not seeing things. The Cowboy only just defended this title at Revolution against Adam Cole and came away the winner, but he is a FIGHTING champion! Angel Dorado is the #2 ranked singles competitor and is getting his shot! Will Dante be flying higher than ever? Or will Cowboy Sh*t never stop?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if “Dorado” becomes literal for Dante!

Dante and Hangman circle, they shake hands to show there is respect, and then tie up. Dante waistlocks, Hangman wrenches to a wristlock but Dante rolls and handsprings to flip and get free! Fans cheer as the two reset and circle again. They approach, Hangman gets around to waistlock now, but Dante uses ropes to buck that. They speed up, Dante rolls but Hangman springs up to tie up. Hangman headlocks, Dante powers out but Hangman runs him over. Hangman grabs a leg but Dante enziguris from below! Dante runs, whips, but Hangman runs him over again. Things speed up again, Dante hurdles and rolls back to headscissor!

Hangman’s up but Dante dropkicks him to a corner! Fans fire up and Dante goes after Hangman with a CHOP! Hangman just smirks. Dante eggs Hangman on and Hangman steps forward, into CHOP after CHOP after CHOP! Dante whips, Hangman reverses but Dante ducks and springboards, CROSSBODY! Cover, but Hangman rolls and rolls and gets up! Fans cheer the showing of power, and Hangman hits a FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman kips up while Dante bails out to the apron. TRIANGLE JUMP LARIAT! Dante goes down and Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Dante gets up, Hangman PLANCHAS him right back down! Fans fire up and get high-fives from the champ, and Hangman catches his breath. The ring count is climbing, but Hangman puts Dante in at 5 of 10. Hangman gets in but Dante throws body shots. Hangman CHOPS Dante off his feet! Hangman stands Dante up, to CHOP him into a corner, and then CHOP him again! And again! Dante turns it around to CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Dante runs, but Hangman follows to corner clothesline! And short arm LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Hangman keeps cool while fans fire up. Hangman brings Dante up and RAMS him into a corner.

Hangman RAMS his shoulder in again, digs his shoulder in, then hoists Dante up top. Hangman CHOPS Dante, climbs up to join him, but Dante throws forearms in return! Hangman hops down, Dante adjusts and leaps over. Dante dodges and jumps, but into a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Dante survives but Hangman keeps his cool. Dynamite returns to single picture and Hangman brings Dante up. Hangman whips Dante to a corner, runs in but Dante goes up and over! Dante runs back in but is put on the apron. ENZIGURI! Dante then climbs, leaps, BIG missile dropkick! Cover, TWO!

Dante is a little surprised but fans rally up. Hangman and Dante stand up, Hangman swings but Dante ducks to hit back! Dante ROCKS Hangman with a forearm, but Hangman blocks the whip! Hangman whips but Dante stops at the ropes. Hangman runs in but Dante jumps up an dover! Hangman ends up on the apron, Dante ROUNDHOUSES him down! Dante goes up and takes a page outta Hangman’s book, ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Direct hit and Dante lands on his feet! Fans are fired up for “A E DUB!” as Dante gets Hangman up. Dante puts Hangman in, goes back to the corner and climbs again!

Fans fire up as Dante aims, BIG MISSILE- POWERBOMB!! Hangman turns dropkick into a bomb, and covers, TWO!! Dante survives disaster but Hangman fires up! Fans rally as Hangman throws off the elbow pads. Fans rally for “COWBOY SH*T!” as Hangman walks to ropes. Dante grabs Hangman’s foot to anchor him, so Hangman kicks him away. Hangman goes to the apron but has to jump up as Dante baseball slides! Hangman ASAI MOONSAULTS, but has to land on his feet as Dante moves! Dante runs in, pop-up but he ranas! Hangman hits ropes, rebounds, but Dante dodges! Dante gets in, returns, and jumps up!

But Hangman shoves him off the top rope! Dante backflips to land on his feet! Hangman slingshots, BUCKSHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

Angel Dorado flew high but the Cowboy hits hard! Hangman holds on against the top two contenders in the same week, who is next on the list?

Tony Schiavone joins Hangman in the ring to commend him on the win here and at Revolution. Schiavone gives Hangman the mic and he says, “Dante, hey. Get your ass back in here real quick.” Dante was about to leave but he decides to go back. Hangman tells Dante, “Look, last year, you got put in a tough position. Your brother got hurt, you had to do the unthinkable: enter singles competition, my friend. And you managed to make it all the way to the AEW World Championship. So I know Darius is back, and I know you guys will be going for the tag titles, but let me tell you. You are one of the hardest hitting, one of the fastest guys I’ve ever wrestled in my life.

“And I wanna tell you, should you make it back here, I’d be glad to do it again.” They shake hands and fans cheer the ringing endorsement. But then Adam Cole speaks up, “Oh for the love of God, would you shut your damn mouth?” Cole storms out and says, “Look at you, Hangman! Look at you! You’re on top of the world, right? You’re untouchable. Well, Sunday at Revolution, I proved that you’re not untouchable. Because at Revolution, we went to war. I took you to your absolute limit and you gave me everything that you had. So congratulations, Hangman, you got a fluke victory against Adam Cole.”

A fluke? Cole says anybody can get lucky once. Next time, Hangman will not get lucky again. Oh is that right? Yeah, it is! And let’s put that to the test! Okay, right now then! Cole says next week on Dynamite, Cole wants a Six Man Tag match where Hangman can “pick any two goons” he wants. Because as far as Cole’s partners, he has two very specific young men in mind. Two guys who know Hangman better than he knows himself. And they’re one of the best tag teams in the entire world, who are COLE’s friends, NOT Hangman’s! Cole is going to give Hangman a week to process this, but Cole promises to make Hangman’s life an absolute living hell!

Cole says Hangman’s days as AEW World Champion are numbered! Cole will not stop until he get what he wants! He will not stop until he gets what he deserves! He will not stop until he hears the words, “And NEW…! AEW World Champion! Adam Cole, BAYBAY!” The Panama City Playboy may be a sore loser, but will he turn it around into being a sore winner?


Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson w/ William Regal VS The Workhorsemen!

The Maniac and the American Dragon went tooth ‘n’ nail, shed blood, sweat and tears in their 1v1 match, and even after a decision, they kept wanting to fight! William Regal sorted them out, and now they’re following through on being a team! But will they be able to survive their first test? Or will JD Drake & Anthony Henry capitalize on some dysfunction?

The teams sort out, at least on one end. Bryan rushes and dropkicks Henry down while Moxley goes after JD! Moxley bumps JD off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off to dig his forearms in. Moxley whips corner to corner and forearm smashes JD! Moxley runs and rams shoulders, but JD stays up! JD spins but Mox ducks the backhand to SAIDO! Tag to Bryan and Bryan KICKS JD! And KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS, KICKS, KICKS! Then… BUZZSAW! JD flops over and Bryan drags JD up. JD powers Bryan to the corner and Henry tags in. JD CHOPS Bryan, Henry CHOPS, then throws EuroUppers and KICKS!

Bryan stares Henry down! Henry throws more forearms and kicks then whips. Bryan reverses and kitchen sink knees! Then PENALTY KICK! Tag to Moxley, he drags Henry up to put him in the corner. Moxley forearms and stomps on repeat, then digs his boots in! The ref counts, Moxley hops down at 4 to tag in Bryan. Bryan drags Henry up to CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP! And KICK! Bryan snapmares Henry to then get the legs. Bryan stands on the legs, Henry tries to resist but Bryan still gets his arms. ROMERO SPECIAL! Tag to Moxley, and he BITES Henry’s forehead, before he CHOPS him down!

Moxley drags Henry up for an X-PLEX! Cover, ONE!! Henry gets away but Moxley runs in, but into an elbow. Henry BOOTS while skinning the cat, to then missile dropkick! Fans fire up, Henry gets over and tags in JD! JD CHOPS Moxley, but Moxley just stares him down. JD CHOPS and SLAPS, so Moxley SLAPS back! JD kicks low, whips, but Moxley LARIATS him down! Then Moxley DECKS Henry, tags in Bryan, and then DIVES out onto Henry! Bryan dodges JD to come back, BUSAIKU KNEE! PARADIGM SHIFT for Henry to the floor! DANIELSON STOMPS for JD!! And then LEBELLE LOCK!! JD taps, Bryan & Moxley win!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson, by submission

William Regal is proud of his students as they come together and win! Regal and Schiavone join Bryan & Moxley in the ring, and Schiavone says that it was no doubt, we got a shocker at Revolution. Regal is in AEW! He has brought Moxley and Bryan together. Schiavone is glad to see “your lordship” again and fans are cheering him on. Regal says, “Mr. Schiavone, I thought we’d never do this again. It’s been 29 years since I first came to America and we were on TBS together. Can you believe that? 29 years. Time has flown by. My time is flying by, I’m 53 now. And let’s face facts, I’ve lived more than a hard life.

“I made it that way, through battles in the ring, through battles with myself. And it won’t be that long. Let’s face facts. Probably in the next, I don’t now, ’til I’m 65, 12 years ’til the wife’s pushing me to the sunny window so I can look out while a bit of toast is dribbling out of my mouth. Because I know that I’m not long for this world. Too many empty bottles, thousands of them, and a few broken hearts, sweetheart.” And Schiavone still hasn’t found a decent tailor in all that time. Let’s not go there.

Now Regal is here to obviously be with these incredible gentlemen here. But this is the first time Regal actually gets to thank Schiavone on camera, because 29 years ago, when Regal first came to America, and not to get too into the story, but Schiavone helped Regal in more ways than he can imagine. Schiavone was one of the first, so Regal thanks him. Now no more niceties. As Regal said, time is ticking. Obviously, he is no longer in his old job. For two months, he sat at home and completely checked out of the industry he had been in for 39 years this year. And then someone told him that his friend, Bryan Danielson, had mentioned him on AEW Dynamite.

That piqued Regal’s interest. He had to watch. Then he found out that his great friend of 21 years, Bryan Danielson, was going to fight Jon Moxley. Some, probably a lot of fans, given the timeframe of 29 years since he first came here, they know this. The only reason they know Regal was because of Bryan. Every time someone mentioned Bryan, whether it be ROH or anywhere else, Regal’s name was also mentioned. So it made a young group of wrestlers realize that as much of a rogue Regal is, what he will do is when someone wants to work hard, he makes them a better pro-wrestler!

The first thing Regal will do is what he did for Bryan: Regal will sit him down and tell him what not to do, and that will save them ten YEARS of their career. This is THE wrestler Regal should’ve been. Bryan is the PERFECT pro-wrestler. And there was a time where they spent time training with a group, they’d leave, and then Bryan would stay with Regal. That’d be 3 or 4 PM, then all the way to midnight, every night for five months, and learn. Then however many years, Regal would send Bryan here or there or mention him, doesn’t matter. Bryan became everything Regal couldn’t be because Bryan doesn’t have the problems Regal had.

And then we go to Moxley. 11 years ago, they met. And for a whole year, the psychological and physical problems that they put on themselves would make even the devil cry. So when Regal knew that these two were “going to knock the stuffing out of each other on Sunday,” Regal knew it was his time to come along. Regal knew that because they’re men, and they did it the right way in the ring, Regal thought he’d seen enough and came out. “What better could this younger generation have than the perfect combination: the perfect wrestler, and the perfect and utter sadistic person that will take things to a completely other level?”

Regal says that is why this team is together. Just a warning to the rest of AEW: “You will not like the outcome. And you either will step up, or you will get stepped on.” What will happen to the AEW Tag Division, and all of AEW, now that this perfect pairing is here?


Backstage interview with The Dark Order.

Alex Marvez is with pretty much everyone in the group as he asks them that after what we saw at Revolution, what is their relationship with Hangman Adam Page? Well he walks over to answer that for them. Sunday, Hangman apologizes. His temper got the best of him, he shouldn’t have gotten mad at them for helping out, so he’s sorry. Evil Uno says it’s cool. But then who will Hangman pick to take on Cole’s team? Silver thinks they should switch it up and use Alan Angels and Anna Jay. If not, Silver & Reynolds are always good, maybe Colt Cabana.

Oh, uh… Hangman just saw Jurassic Express in the hall. They want to get their hands back on the Young Bucks so Hangman just kinda said it was cool. Oh, that’s fine. Hangman can do his thing. Silver’s gotta work on his beard, Reynolds has a yoga class, it’s all good. Well alright, they can catch up after Hangman gets changed. So then, will the all championship team of Hangman, Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus crush the Super Kliq? That is, if Jurassic Express is still golden after tonight.


PAC w/ Death Triangle VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Best Friends!

This match was on standby just in case, so here it is! The Bastard and his team were on the losing end against the House of Black, but the Best Friends didn’t have that much better of a Sunday. Will Pac use Yuta as his redemption? Or will the Decoder have Pac all figured out?

The bell rings, they tie up and Pac puts Yuta on ropes. The ref counts, Pac lets off but then wrenches and YANKS the arm. And YANKS! And wrenches, but Yuta rolls and handsprings to arm-drag! Yuta dropkicks Pac down then covers, ONE! Fans fire up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Pac headbutts Yuta in the stomach, then headlocks and SLAMS Yuta into the mat! Yuta checks his face but Pac brings him up. Pac whips Yuta hard into the corner and Yuta bounces off buckles. Pac stomps Yuta, KICKS him, then stomps him more. Pac stands on Yuta at the ropes but lets off as the ref counts. Pac paces, drags Yuta up and whips him out of the ring. Pac goes out, stares Cassidy down, but Penta walks over. Pac gets Yuta up and whips him hard into railing! Pac then gets Yuta up and snap suplexes him to the floor! Pac gets in the ring to let the count take care of Yuta, but Yuta gets in soon after.

Pac stomps Yuta and taunts him. Yuta hits back, Pac eggs him on so Yuta hits Pac again> Pac KNEES Yuta down! Pac stands on Yuta’s neck and taunts the Best Friends, but he lets off as the ref counts to 4. Pac paces, he stares Cassidy down, then sees Yuta getting up. Pac scuffs Yuta, sits him up while staring at Cassidy, then scuffs Yuta again. Pac eggs Yuta on, Yuta gets up and Dynamite returns to single picture. Pac continues to taunt Yuta so Yuta CHOPS him! And fires off forearms! Pac whips Yuta out, but Yuta rewinds and waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up while both men are down!

Pac gets up, but Yuta atomic drops then ENZIGURIS! Yuta whips, Pac reverses but Yuta BOOTS from the corner! Yuta goes up, fakes Pac out, then CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!! Yuta almost had Pac but he fires up with the fans! Yuta drags Pac up, but Pac SOBATS! Pac waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Pac argues with the ref but the ref defends that was two. Pac drags Yuta up, puts him up top, then climbs up to join him. Pac brings Yuta up for a SUPERPLEX BRAINBUSTER!! And then the BRUTALIZER! Yuta taps, Pac wins!

Winner: PAC, by submission

Pac lets off and the Best Friends check on Yuta. Will the Bastard look to be even more brutal after what the House of Black did to him?


The Cutler Cam is live.

Adam Cole stands with reDRagon and the Young Bucks, and Sunday didn’t go the best for them. Cole didn’t become world champion, neither team here took the tag titles. Matt Jackson says, “No thanks to Kyle & Bobby. Good job, guys.” The plan didn’t work out, but Kyle says it’s self-centered for Matt to say it’s reDRagon’s fault only. Cole has them stop arguing, because things will change next week in that Six Man Tag. Hangman, Cole has two guys who are the perfect partners for him. These guys live in Hangman’s head rent free, 24/7. These guys know how to party, and two of Cole’s very best friends!

Matt stops Cole there. He’s told Cole before. They want nothing to do with Hangman, even if it’s a match. Count them out. Oh, well, Cole wasn’t picking the Bucks anyway. It was going to be reDRagon. Oh, good. Cole storms off and Kyle says again, Matt is being self-centered. Work on that. Cutler says he would’ve chosen the Bucks. Shut up, Brandon. And reDRagon heard that! Will Cole, Kyle & Fish be the undisputed winners against the three AEW champions?


Backstage interview with FTR & Tully Blanchard.

Alex Marvez brings up that Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler lost in two straight Tag Team Battle Royals, but where does their focus turn now? The titles? Or revenge on Bucks and reDRagon? Dax says that in private conversations, many, many times, pro-wrestling is Dax’s first love. All the way up until his wedding day with his wife, and then the birth of his baby girl. To be able to go back to Ashville, North Carolina, and tell his daughter that she can do whatever she wants, so long as she stands up for what she believes in, that means Dax & Uncle Dan have to do the same! So that means reDRagon and Bucks, Dax & Cash-

Tully speaks up. He wants to remind them that when he got involved with FTR, it was about championships. They listened to Tully, they want championships. He understands family, he has one, too. The kids need things, but AEW is about FTR winning the titles back! Dax grabs Tully by the collar and tells him this is about his family! Cash cools things off, but says that this is about family. Sadly, Tully ain’t family, so he’s fired. What a development for FTR and The Pinnacle as a whole! Will Dax & Cash get their revenge on The Elite one way or another?


The Andrade Hardy Family Office is in the ring.

El Idolo and his assistant, Jose, stand with Big Money Matt, Private Party, and the mercenaries, The Butcher & The Blade. Hardy says that they came out here tonight to start fresh. Hardy wants to make amends with the AHFO. Andrade came out here because he wants to FIRE Hardy from the group he started here! Andrade tells Hardy to tranquilo, take it easy. What happened to Hardy and Mr. Sting? Where’s the suit? Hardy is turning over a new leaf. Hardy apologized for treating everyone poorly, and his boys, Private Party. He puts a suit on, he transforms into an A-hole. Andrade knows what that is like, and same for Jose!

Whoa, seriously, Matt? Fans echo, “A-HOLE~!” and Hardy says he just wants to make things right. Well, okay. They will make this right. It will be a vote. Well, Hardy is fine with that, but he isn’t sure how good Andrade’s arithmetic is, because he can’t vote Hardy out unless Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy side with Andrade. So if they want Hardy to stay, thumbs up. Thumbs down for firing Hardy. Thumbs down from Andrade, but thumbs up from Hardy. Jose says down, but the Private Party boys say up! And Hardy knew that was how it’d be. Hardy wants to work with them, but wait! The Private Party changes their votes!!

Andrade says, “In this business, you always but always need to watch your back.” Hardy looks around and sees the thumbs down! How could they do this to him? But then Andrade attacks Hardy from behind! And the mercs join in, and then so does Private Party! Now it’s just the ANDRADE Family Office! Private Party stands Hardy up and Andrade says he is THE BOSS! BOOT for Hardy! Jose applauds but then Andrade has Jose go fetch something. A chair! But wait, here comes Darby Allin and Sting! They may have had problems with Hardy, but they seem to have bigger beef with Andrade!

Darby and Sting go down the ramp but they’re still outnumbered. Jose keeps Hardy down with the chair but Sting and Darby still fight the thugs! Darby is mugged by Private Party, and eventually Butcher & Blade turn things around on Sting! BUT HERE COMES JEFF HARDY!!! The Charismatic Enigma throws hands on Private Party! And RUSSIAN LEG SWEEPS Blade, to JAWBREAKER Butcher! Hardy chases of Jose and Andrade, too! Darby and Hardy pinball Blade around, then Sting gets his shot in. Matt Hardy gives Blade a TWIST OF FATE! Jeff throws off the shirt, goes up top, SWANTON BOMB!!

Fans are going nuts to see the Hardy Boyz together here in AEW! Even Darby is shocked! Will Team Extreme revolutionize what’s going on here in AEW?


Backstage interview with Swerve Strickland.

A great response for Swerve at Revolutionary, but he make his in-ring debut on Rampage this Friday. Swerve says, “You know I’m like this. Debuting in AEW.” But Tony Nese applauds and sarcastically welcomes Swerve. Everyone is so excited to see him. Look at Schiavone, he was going crazy! They didn’t do that for Nese but whatever. Swerve doesn’t have an opponent yet, but seeing as how these two have history on Fridays, why not let the Premier Athlete welcome him properly? Swerve wondered who would be first to interrupt him. But of course it’s Nese.

So yeah, let’s revisit their Fridays on Rampage, and Swerve will bless Nese again, by still beatin’ that ass. This ain’t Nese’s House, this is SWERVE’S House. See you Friday.


AEW returns and Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to Dynamite, and let’s bring in the NEW Face of the Revolution, WARDLOW! The Maestro of Mayhem makes his way out, and no need for an accountabilibuddy, either. Wardlow won the ladder match and is preparing for a TNT Championship match, but Schiavone is really happy to see what Wardlow did with the Dynamite Diamond Ring to MJF. However, isn’t he still under contract with MJF? Wardlow says “We all have to come to a moment in life where we have to decide: Are we going to help somebody, and spend our lives accomplishing someone else’s goals and dreams? Or are we going to take that next step and take that chance and fulfill our own?”

Wardlow says that before Max, he spent too many years spending his life helping someone else build something while receiving nothing and still the demand for more in return. He thought his opportunity with MJF was his chance to free the wild animal from the circus. Little did Wardlow know that he walked out of one cage, and into another. He found himself spending his energy, his life, making sure Max was fulfilling his dreams. Now, Wardlow knew MJF wasn’t a good guy when he signed up for the job, and so everyone will have to forgive him for associating with such trash.

But to be honest, Wardlow grew up very poor, and had to watch his mother with a heart of gold struggle to raise him and his two older sisters. At a young age, Wardlow knew he wanted to be a pro-wrestler because he fell in love with it, but also because it’d grant him the opportunity to provide for himself, and his family. Max was his way of getting his foot in the door. Yes, here Wardlow is, and yes, MJF paid him a lot of money and yes, MJF changed Wardlow’s life. For that, Wardlow is thankful. But it doesn’t matter how much you pay someone, how much you help someone, it doesn’t give someone the right to disrespect them, threaten their family, and sure as hell doesn’t give you the right to put your hands on them!

Wardlow tells MJF that when MJF slapped him, MJF decided his own fate. Contract? Yes, he is still under contract, but he no longer gives a damn! And at Revolution, Wardlow’s actions were to let Max and everyone else know that he is no longer watch MJF’s back, no longer is body guard and no longer in The Pinnacle! Wardlow is finally FREE! Fans cheer that, and chant for “WARD~LOW!” Wardlow hopes MJF is as smart as he claims to be, and releases Wardlow from the BS. Now, in return, Wardlow will wash his hands of MJF and they can go their separate ways.

Don’t get him wrong, Wardlow would love to powerbomb MJF until he can no longer move. But Wardlow’s wasted three years on MJF, he won’t waste another ounce of energy. Karma will be Wardlow’s revenge while MJF gets everything he has coming to him. So Wardlow’s only concern now is getting that TNT Championship and obtaining a new contract. Then Wardlow isn’t stopping at the TNT title. After years of giving, Wardlow is finally taking, and he wants it all! So as of right now, Wardlow is letting everyone know, All Elite Wrestling is officially Wardlow’s world! Fans fire up as the big man puts out his mission statement! Will anyone, can anyone, stop him?


Backstage interview with Keith Lee and QT Marshall.

Alex Marvez says QT asked for this time, but Keith isn’t even sure what QT wants from him. QT wants to welcome Keith to AEW, and says he understands why Keith Lee is limitless. But it seems they have a common enemy in Team Taz. QT thought he and Taz were great friends, with Taz trusting QT to train his son, Hook. Didn’t Hook beat QT up? Yes, but that’s the learning process. QT says Keith seems to have issue with Ricky Starks & Will Hobbs. Keith, QT knows they don’t know each other, but QT has some stroke around here. The Factory has Keith’s back. Uh, Keith has a very large back, but he’s good.

Keith walks away and QT asks what he means by “you’re good?” Keith will pay for this! Is QT seriously going to try and make the Limitless One his enemy?

Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling speak.

The TBS Champion says, “All we wanna know is, who’s next?” Smart Mark Sterling asks, “Who’s left?” Jade’s beaten Red Velvet. That was easy. She beat The Bunny. Forgot about her. Skye Blue. Anna Jay! And now, Tay Conti. Next is the biggest opportunity of them all: 30-0 undefeated streak. This open challenge has a very important question. “Who wants to step up and receive my beautiful kiss of death on #ThatBitchShow?”


AEW Women’s World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Leyla Hirsch VS Thunder Rosa!

After Leyla scored a not so legit win in the Buy In, and after an even less fair loss for La Mera Mera, the rankings have switched. Will Leyla still be number one and head for Britt Baker next week? Or will Thunder Rosa use Leyla to vent so she can get a rematch with the “good” doctor?

The bell rings, the two circle and tie up. Leyla gets around, waistlocks then traps the arms for a takedown. She gets a dragon sleeper but Rosa slips out to facelock.

Rosa and Leyla talk some trash, Leyla shoves and things speed up. Rosa hurdles, arm-drags, then gets up to arm-drag again! And then dropkick! Leyla gets to a corner, Rosa runs in and clotheslines! Then she clotheslines point blank! Rosa brings Leyla out to scoop, but Leyla turns that into a takedown and stomp!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW Women’s World Championship)

Now this was legit! La Mera Mera is one week away from her rematch, will she get revenge on Britt for St. Patrick’s Day?

Tony Schiavone speaks from commentary that that was a tremendous win for Rosa, she should feel great about it. And it was one year ago at St. Patrick’s Day Slam that Rosa had that amazing Unsanctioned Lights Out Match with Britt Baker. Now, in her hometown of San Antonio, in the title rematch, it will be in a STEEL CAGE! Rosa is fired up to hear that! Will that cage keep out Britt’s little buddies so Rosa can have a real shot?

Britt Baker responds.

“Hey, Thunder. Champ here. It’s funny how you had a little more pep in your step getting down the ramp tonight. I guess that’s how it works when you think you actually have a shot at beating your opponent. Speaking of which, I beat you at Revolution, so why instead of going to the back of the line like everyone else, did you get an Eliminator Match three nights later? And now, I have to wrestle you in a cage to keep my friends out, but you get all of San Antonio backing you? This conspiracy sh*t lives on. Hey, Red Velvet! How you doing, girl? Thunder, I’m happy you finally found a friend, but where’s Mercedes? She didn’t make it to the party?

“That’s okay, she’s not gonna be available next week anyways, regardless of the cage, after Jamie finishes her this week on Rampage. And Thunder, I’m not afraid of you. I’m not afraid of a cage. What I’m afraid of is what becomes of All Elite Wrestling if carny riffraff like you becomes champion. Remember: almost a year ago in that Lights Out Match, you go the pin. But who really won? Yours truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.” Britt said a lot of big words, but will she have to eat them all when she and Rosa are locked inside the cage?


AEW TNT Championship: Sammy Guevara VS Scorpio Sky w/ Ethan Page & Dan Lambert!

The Spanish God retained against both El Idolo and Darby Allin, but no one has pinned or submitted The Closer in over a year. We know Wardlow is waiting on the other side, but who brings the gold to the St. Patrick’s Day Slam?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, it’s title VS streak, something’s gotta give!

Sammy and Scorpio stare down, then Scorpio rushes in! Sammy dodges, fires off and CHOPS Scorpio in the corner! Scorpio turns it around to CHOP and CHOP! Sammy fires haymakers back, but Scorpio knees low. Scorpio whips, Sammy reverses and hurdles, then flips, then dropkicks! Scorpio bails out, Sammy kips up so smooth! Scorpio regroups with All Ego and Fat Headed Dips*it, but Sammy storms over. Scorpio ROCKS Sammy with a sucker punch, then ROCKS him again! Sammy ROCKS Scorpio back, then whips him into railing, right in front of Paige VanZant and her hubby!

Sammy refreshes the count, looks under the ring, and brings out a TABLE! Fans fire up but Ethan complains, this isn’t No Disqualification! Sammy RAMS Scorpio into steel steps, then refreshes the count again. Sammy finishes setting up the table, Lambert and Ethan are furious with the ref. Sammy gets Scorpio up but Scorpio fireman’s carries! Sammy slips off to RAM Scorpio into railing again, then SUPERKICKS him down! Scorpio flops under the table, Sammy goes around to get him. Sammy puts Scorpio on the table, throws down hands, then tells the fans he’s loco! Sammy goes up top and fans fire up!

The ref warns Sammy, this still isn’t no disqualification! Sammy doesn’t care, he’s LOCO! 630 SENTON, but Scorpio moves! Sammy goes through the table, ALONE! Ethan coaches Scorpio up while Lambert is having the time of his life! Fans lose their minds, a medic checks on Sammy, but Scorpio stomps Sammy down! Tay Conti rushes out to check on Sammy, too, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The medic still checks Sammy, he does have bad ribs from Revolution. Sammy is shaking his head, this was probably too reckless for even him. More refs come out, they talk over the situation. Ethan and Lambert have Scorpio stay in the ring while Sammy is still being checked out. Tay is very worried as Sammy does his best to explain to the medic. Scorpio does a mock ring count, and hits ten. He acts like he wins, but uh, titles don’t change on count outs, right? Sammy tries to sit up but even that is hard. Sammy slowly stands up, and has Tay and the medic support him. They’re walking towards the ramp, is this match done?

Sammy takes a moment to rest, still tries to explain, and then he gets up again. Wait, is Sammy saying he can continue?! Tay and the medic don’t think that’s good, but Sammy gets in the ring! The ref checks with him if this is really what he wants, and Sammy says yes! Dynamite returns to single picture, this match continues! And he SPITS in Scorpio’s face to egg him on! They start throwing hands fast and furious, and fans cheer on the guts! Scorpio fires knees on the ribs, throws Sammy out hard, and Tay is back to check on him again. Scorpio goes out and tells Tay to back off. He says this is what happens.

Scorpio gives Sammy a kiss on the cheek to taunt Tay, and then VanZant starts talking trash. Tay stares her down but leaves it at that. Scorpio gets Sammy up, for a BACKBREAKER! Scorpio gets right in Sammy’s face as he writhes, but Sammy pie faces back. Scorpio gets Sammy up again, for another BACKBREAKER! Tay cheers Sammy on but Scorpio talks trash right to his face. Scorpio looms over Sammy, drags him back up, and hits a third BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Sammy stays in this but the kick-out seems to hurt just as much as anything else! Scorpio digs his knee into Sammy with a chinlock!

Fans rally up, Sammy fights to his feet and throws haymakers and body shots! Sammy fires off shots, runs, and turns Scorpio’s kitchen sink into a roll-up! TWO!! Sammy CHOPS Scorpio, but he drops to a knee. Sammy CHOPS again, and he whips but Scorpio reverses. Sammy back elbows from a corner, and jump kicks! Sammy gets out, springboards back in, FLYING CUTTER!! Cover, TWO!! Scorpio survives and fans are thunderous! Sammy snarls, slashes his throat, and he brings Scorpio up. But Scorpio fireman’s carries for the TK- NO! Sammy slips out, SUPERKICKS back, and torture racks! G T H!!! But Scorpio gets away before a cover!

Sammy hurries to get Scorpio into a drop zone! Sammy goes up, and SHOOTING STARS onto knees!! Both men are down and Lambert distracts the ref. Ethan gets on the apron but Tay YANKS him down! Tay says no he don’t! But VanZant jumps the rail to CLOBBER Tay! And RAM her into steel steps! Sammy is distracted, Scorpio gets a T K O!!! Cover, Scorpio wins!!!

Winner: Scorpio Sky, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

The streak still lives, and Scorpio is now the first to check off his second AEW title! But speaking of which, Scorpio CLOBBERS Sammy with one of the belts!! Tay gets up and VanZant shoves her into the ring! BUZZSAW! Tay flops onto Sammy, and VanZant shows off her AEW contract. VanZant uses Tay’s ass as the table to sign it! American Top Team is taking over! But with Wardlow waiting, will Scorpio’s reign end real quick?

My Thoughts:

Wow, I have never seen a wrestling company do such a big follow-up show like this. We just got Revolution, and St. Patrick’s Day Slam is coming next, but AEW sandwiching what was practically a PPV on TV was a major power play. We got a powerful opening segment with Jericho baiting Kingston and even Santana & Ortiz into a trap to recreate the Inner Circle into a new faction. I had the weirdest feeling something like this would happen, but I never thought it’d happen. And then we got an awesome surprise in a world title match for Dante. This was definitely AEW’s nod towards Dante being another of their young pillars.

At the same time, Hangman having any match was a great way to bring Adam Cole out and essentially demand a rematch. Of course, this all threads through the story of dysfunction within The Elite and Cole’s social circle. I knew right away that Cole was making us think he meant the Young Bucks but was really going with reDRagon. I did not expect Hangman to say he was going with Jurassic Express over The Dark Order, but there’s still the on again, off again relationship that Hangman has with them that AEW plays with. Jurassic Express having another title defense here was also a great surprise, and it was great stuff with The Acclaimed.

Wardlow of course was going to say he was breaking off from MJF, but that was a really well done promo for him. FTR had a really good promo, too, and firing Tully was quite the surprise. It seems that while the Inner Circle’s ashes have born a new faction, it feels like The Pinnacle is just going to fall apart period. Maybe Tully defaults to being Shawn Spears’ manager, and then they together help MJF. Good promo from Keith and QT to set up a match there, and a good promo from Swerve and Nese to vaguely reference WWE 205 Live and the golden days it had with these two. I would think Swerve wins his debut in a great match with Nese.

Great “standby” match from Pac VS Yuta. It didn’t necessarily block off more from Death Triangle VS House of Black, but it did harken back to when Pac feuded with Cassidy. AHFO had a good segment together, and this was the moment everyone was figuring would happen. Matt Hardy gets kicked out but he gets back-up from Brother Nero! The Hardys are together again again, and I’m thinking we get an 8 Man Tag since Darby and Sting also joined in. Leyla VS Rosa was a very good match, and it was great of Velvet to stop Leyla from cheating. That sets up Velvet VS Leyla, and then I really like that they’re stepping up Britt VS Rosa to a Steel Cage.

Britt had a good promo that does technically have a good point about Rosa coming back so soon, but the easy counter is that management has eyes and is fed up with her cheating. Though, I’m pretty sure that, like any other cage match, interference still happens. I just hope that with Rosa being in her hometown and AEW actually letting hometown heroes go over, this is finally Rosa’s win. Jade had a good promo to leave it open that she’ll be expecting someone to step up. Not really sure who there is with many names busy in stories, but maybe we’ll get a nice surprise through the “Forbidden Door.”

We got a great tag debut for Moxley & Bryan, and even a good AEW debut for The Workhorsemen. But whoever was being put against Moxley & Bryan, they were going to lose. Regal had an awesome promo, a powerful promo, that showed us the path that led these three to this moment, and I am very excited. Whether Moxley & Bryan become an AEW Two Man Power Trip or add some of those young names Bryan mentioned before to their team and still take over everything here. And then, what a main event! I did not think Sammy would crash through the table and sell the ribs, and then still lose because of American Top Team.

Next week, Scorpio VS Wardlow is going to be great stuff, could go either way because American Top Team or MJF can screw Wardlow. And VanZant targeting Tay Conti, that’s a good audible with Cody & Brandi gone. Hell, it’s an improvement because Tay is legit just like VanZant.

My Score: 9.1/10

Backstage interview with Team Triple J.

Lexi Nair is with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, as well as Jeff & Karen Jarrett, “and the talk all week has been that you, Sonjay Dutt, and your group will be suspended.” WHAT?! Fined? Suspended? The only ones who should be facing that is AEW itself! They backed Triple J into a corner and they came out swinging like any real fighters would! Lethal feels that there should be consequences for Aubrey Edwards! She’s been against Triple J since the dawn of time! Something needs to be done about her! Jeff adds that there’s been enough talk these past five days. Should the heat go on the promotion? Should the heat go on Briscoe? On Aubrey?

The reality of the fact is, these five people are walking, talking, fire-breathing heat! But wait, here comes Mark Briscoe! He wants everyone to simmer down. There will be no suspensions, he assures us that. Mark talked with Tony Khan, Tony promised them there would be no suspensions. Because if Triple J is suspended, then they can’t be here. Because if they aren’t here, then they can’t get the ass whooping they deserve! Lethal wants Mark to hold on but Mark tells Lethal to shut up! We ain’t talking about Lethal! We’re talking about Jeff and KAREN! What?! “We?” Who is “we?!” AUBREY EDWARDS!!

Triple J cannot believe this. Aubrey wants Karen? Then there’s nothing but air and opportunity between them. So then Aubrey CHOKES Karen!! Karen and Aubrey start scrapping and Triple J, other refs and security rush in to stop this! When and where will Double J & the one true Karen have to face off with the Sussex County Chicken and one pissed off zebra?


NJPW World Television Championship: Zack Sabre Jr. VS Action Andretti!

Speaking of just last night on ROH, the Frontman of TMDK just defended this belt against Rocky Romero to prove a point to “Samoan Joseph” about who is the better, harder working Television Champion. And here he is again as part of this championship edition of Rampage! Will the ZSJ Show continue on into the summer block? Or will NJPW have some #LightsCameraAction?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Action gets his 15 minutes of fame!

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The two circle, fans rally, feel things out, and ZSJ shoots in to waistlock and full nelson. Then he spins Action to a cravat, but Action pries at the hold. ZSJ facelocks now, Action wrenches out of that but ZSJ rolls and slips away. Fans cheer this opening exchange and the two reset. Action shoots in but ZSJ avoids him. They tie up with knuckle locks, ZSJ bridges back and wrenches around to then wrangle Action with a top wristlock. Fans cheer and ZSJ digs a knee into the shoulder. Action rolls, cartwheels, arm-drags, but fans cheer as ZSJ holds onto the wrist!

ZSJ twists the wrist, bends the fingers, drags Action up and wrenches the arm to wrangle him again. Action keeps his shoulders up, fans rally, and Action kips up to wrench and MONKEY FLIP! But ZSJ still holds onto the wrist! Fans rally, ZSJ bends the fingers and he tortures Action’s arm. Action fights up but ZSJ keeps after the fingers. ZSJ flexes but Action stands. Action spins, flips and arm-drags free! Action then CHOPS ZSJ, then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! ZSJ flounders up, Action DROPKICKS him down!

Direct hit into the railing! Fans are fired up with Action and he brings ZSJ back up. Action puts ZSJ in, slingshots, but ZSJ shoves him! Action lands safe but swings into body scissors, which ZSJ makes into a HANGING TRIANGLE! ZSJ did this to Rocky last night! The ref counts, ZSJ lets go at 4 and he drags Action back in, to WRING the arm out! Fans sing “OH~ Zack Sabre Junior~” as he stalks Action. ZSJ sits on the arm, hammerlocks it, and TWISTS!

Action writhes while fans are torn over the savagery. ZSJ gets Action’s leg, steps over to get the arm, and he STOMPS the arm! “OI! TV Tekkers, mates!” ZSJ stalks Action to a corner, brings him up and UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! “This is Awesome!” and ZSJ knuckle locks to wrench Action. Action endures as ZSJ twists the wrist more, and then ZSJ KICKS a leg. Action stays up so ZSJ wrenches and twists the wrist. Action throws body shots and CHOPS! ZSJ jumps on to drag Action down to a DISARMER! Action endures, reaches out, and fans rally. Action kicks around, ZSJ pulls on the arm, but Action gets the ROPEBREAK!

ZSJ lets go in frustration but he storms up to drag Action up. ZSJ has a double wristlock but Action endures. Fans rally, ZSJ jumps on to body scissor! Action stays up but ZSJ keeps on that arm. Action throws body shots, then suplexes high and HARD! Both men are down and fans are thunderous! Action roars, runs, springboards, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cover, TWO! ZSJ survives and fans rally up again. Action brings ZSJ up, but ZSJ fights the torture rack to wrench and PELE the arm! And then he drop toeholds Action so he can STOMP the arm again! Fans are torn while Action clutches the bad shoulder.

ZSJ drags Action up, but Action blocks the Pele to ENZIGURI! Action puts ZSJ up top, CHOPS him, then climbs up after him. But ZSJ gets the bad arm to twist it! And YANK it! Action throws body shots, forearms, but ZSJ DECKS Action! ZSJ eggs on the fans, the fans cheer, and Action kips up! PELE!! Action runs corner to corner and jumps up to SUPER STEINER!! Cover, TWO!! ZSJ survives and Action can’t believe it! Action drags ZSJ up, torture racks, but ZSJ has a SLEEPER! Action sputters, he starts fading! But Action powers up!

ZSJ KICKS Action in the leg! And then KICKS him in the arm! ZSJ is mad now, but he runs into a SUPERKICK! Action goes up, POISON-RANA!! ZSJ flops around, Action runs in again, “This is Awesome!” as Action SHOTGUNS ZSJ down! ZSJ is in the drop zone, Action goes up, SPLIT-LEG MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! ZSJ survives again but Action goes right to the apron. Action springboards, but flies into a TAKEDOWN! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!! Action flails around, but ZSJ gets the other arm! Modified Rings of Saturn, into JIM BREAKS ARMBAR!! Action verbally quits, ZSJ wins!!

Winner: Zack Sabre Jr, by submission (still NJPW World TV Champion)

Action’s 15 minutes of fame were really just over 10 minutes as The Frontman does it again! But now he moves on to defend this title at NJPW Dominion on Sunday against Jeff Cobb in a highly anticipated rematch. The Mighty Don’t Kneel, but will ZSJ get crushed by the Imperial Unit?


NJPW Strong Women’s Championship: Willow Nightingale VS Emi Sakura!

The Babe with the Power, too sweet to be sour, is the very-first NJPW Strong Women’s Champion after a powerful run at Resurgence. But will Willow make it through her first defense? Or will the Queen of Joshi take Willow’s throne already?

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

After their encounter with Dralistico and Preston Vance last Wednesday, #JungleHook reunites for a TEXAS TORNADO TAG MATCH! Will Jack Perry & The FTW Champion tear apart La Faccion Ingobernable?


BIG news for ROH!

On Friday, July 21st in Trenton, New Jersey, ROH returns to PPV with Death Before Dishonor! Tickets go on sale next Friday, June 9th!


Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, two technical masters go face to face when Lee Moriarty takes on Shibata for the ROH Pure Championship.” Nigel McGuiness says a competitor like Shibata can pick you apart, one body part by another. But Tony Schiavone and Taz say not enough is said about just how talented Moriarty is for such a young wrestler. It looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!

ROH Pure Championship: Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty!

The Wrestler defended this title just last night on ROH against his student, Alex “The Android” Coughlin. But now he faces #TAIGASTYLE, who has come close to snatching this title for his own not too long ago. Will tonight be Moriarty’s night? Or will Shibata make it through this Pure Wrestling Double Header?

The introductions are made, our judges are BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels & Jerry Lynn, and the belt is raised as we see who is truly THE Wrestler!

The bell rings and the clock is ticking on this 60 minute time limit. The two feel things out, Moriarty shoots in but Shibata holds him off with a sprawl. They clinch on the mat, Shibata slips to a waistlock and then a chinlock. Moriarty slips free but Shibata pushes him to a cover, ONE! Shibata wraps Moriarty up with his own arm and then goes for the armbar! Moriarty clasps hands but ends up in a TRIANGLE! Moriarty falls onto the ROPEBREAK, that is his first of three. Shibata even lets Moriarty know it as they reset. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder, clinch, and Moriarty tries for a leg.

Shibata powers Moriarty down, gets around to a waistlock, and they stand up. Moriarty pries the hold, fans cheer this technical exchange, but then Moriarty elbows free! Moriarty stomps Shibata into a corner, the ref counts, but Moriarty digs his boot in. Fans boo, but Shibata powers up to back Moriarty down! Shibata throws the foot down but Shibata ROCKS him! Moriarty runs to dropkick the legs out! Fans boo while Moriarty grits his teeth, and then the fans rally up for Shibata as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Moriarty mocks the applause as he stands over Shibata. Moriarty then says they can stop all that, and he grabs a leg to DDT the foot! Moriarty kips up, air guitars, and he ties up Shibata’s legs into a unique crisscross toehold. Then he sits with it for a modified stump puller! Shibata’s shoulders are down, Moriarty is practically stealing Darby Allin’s Last Supper! TWO as Shibata kicks out and Moriarty argues the count. Moriarty drags Shibata around, stomps a leg, then stomps it more and more before another DDT to the foot! Moriarty mocks the clapping from the fans, and then he drags Shibata around for a spinning toehold!

Shibata endures as Moriarty ties up the legs into another cross toehold. Moriarty puts Shibata into an Indian Deathlock, then he knuckle locks Shibata for a cover. TWO as Shibata gets an arm up! Moriarty pushes the arm back down, TWO as Shibata gets the other arm up! Moriarty pushes that arm down, TWO as Shibata gets both arms up! Moriarty CHOPS Shibata, pushes on the legs, then lets Shibata go. Moriarty gets a leg, hooks it, and ties Shibata up in another cross toehold, only for Shibata to trip him! Shibata gets Moriarty’s legs, steps through, but Moriarty fights the figure four! Shibata powers through to sync it in!

Moriarty endures, reaches out, but his shoulders are down. TWO as Moriarty sits up, Shibata keeps on the pressure, and Moriarty falls back onto his shoulders. TWO as he sits up again! Shibata has the extended leg caught in a heel hook behind his back! Moriarty falls back again, shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up! Moriarty endures, reaches out, claws at the hold, and he pries it open. Shibata works to keep it on tight, Moriarty is down again, TWO! Moriarty sits up, Shibata thrashes around, and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans rally, Moriarty drags Shibata along as he reaches back, but Shibata drags him from the ropes!

Moriarty scrambles and goes to the opposite side, ROPEBREAK! That’s his second, he has one left, and we’ve only just past six minutes! Shibata stomps Moriarty’s bad leg, has him in a corner, and he fires off forearms! The ref counts, Shibata fires again and again, but lets off at 4. Shibata runs corner to corner but Moriarty follows to KNEE him in the corner! And then HALF HATCH BRIDGE! TWO as Shibata fights out of the “pancake.” Moriarty HAMMERS away on the back of Shibata’s head! Fans rally, Moriarty suplexes, but Shibata blocks! Shibata powers out but Moriarty kicks low!

Moriarty runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Fans rally, Shibata stomps his legs into working, and he storms up on Moriarty. Shibata drags Moriarty up to whip him to a corner and BOOT! And he fires off more forearms! The ref counts, Shibata runs corner to corner, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Fans fire up for that Shibata signature and he drags Moriarty up. HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Moriarty is still in this but Shibata clamps right on with a chinlock! Moriarty fights to the ROPEBREAK, but that’s his last! Shibata waistlocks. Moriarty switches to roll up, TWO! But Moriarty rolls with to get the BORDER CITY STRETCH!!

Shibata endures, Moriarty pulls him back, but fans rally up. Shibata rolls things to a cover, TWO! Moriarty ROCKS Shibata, winds up, but Shibata ROCKS Moriarty! And then SLEEPER!! Shibata sits Moriarty down, runs, PENALTY KICK!! Cover, Shibata wins!!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall (still ROH Pure Champion)

Just past nine minutes and Shibata finishes things off, but wait! Daniel Garcia is here! The Dragonslayer is a former ROH Pure Champion, and he’s walking out right to the ring! Garcia steps in, he swaggers up to Shibata, and it is clear this is what’s next for Shibata. Shibata raises the belt to signal his accepting the challenge, will The Wrestler put down this sports… enner-tay-ner?

My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, though I’m surprised this wasn’t just a Battle of the Belts special. Excalibur said it himself on commentary in the main event, but it was great to start off with the epitome of lucha libre and finish on Strong Style technical wrestling. The AAA Mega Championship was a great opener, and was definitely another instance where I’m grateful we can pause things because they were going fast and furious. Or maybe at Flash speeds, since that’s a Warner Brothers movie they could plug. But as I figured going into this, all the champions retained, since none of these were AEW titles (directly, since ROH is a subsidiary of AEW now).

The NJPW World Television Championship continues to be a great title to watch because of the 15 minute time limit speeding things up. Likewise, ZSJ is always a great wrestler to watch, but so hard to write for cuz he has the biggest collection of named signature moves/holds of any wrestler I’ve seen. I had to double check what he was using to make Action tap, because I keep thinking things are Clarky Cat when they’re not Clarky Cat. ZSJ is setting a very high bar for this title, maybe he retains against Cobb at Dominion or maybe he loses, but it’s going to be hard for the second-ever NJPW World TV Champion to match what ZSJ has done.

Great first title defense for Willow and this title, she and Emi put on a great match. I wonder when Willow has her first defense on NJPW Strong, and who she’ll be facing. And we got a great Pure Championship match to finish, and I’m surprised it was so quick, even compared to the NJPW World TV Championship match. But great win for Shibata, I like that Garcia is stepping up, and that’s going to be an awesome match. I don’t know if they’re going to wait until Death Before Dishonor in July for that match, but knowing AEW and ROH, they can find a way to stretch things out. Especially with Garcia also busy being part of JAS and doing JAS things.

My Score: 8.7/10

Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS The Lucha Brothers & Bandido!

Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, along with Bryan Danielson, were victorious at Double or Nothing in Anarchy in the Arena II, but they had some help at the end. We’ll hear from dirty Don and turncoat Takeshita later, because right now, the BCC want to unleash #DeathJitsu on the ROH World Tag Team Champions & The Most Wanted! Will the Maniac, the Swiss Superman and the Decoder prove they’re ready for more violence?

Fans are fired up for the Lucha Bros & Bandido but the BCC isn’t amused. The trios sort out but then everyone starts shoving. Then they start brawling!

Fans rally up, Bandido suplexes Yuta! And holds him up! Uno! Dos! Tress! But then Mox rushes in! Fenix SUPERKICKS him first! Penta sees Claudio and SUPERKICKS him first! Then they SUPERKICK again! Bandido goes past TWENTY, and then the Lucha Brothers each grab Moxley and Claudio to hammerlock arms. DOUBLE SACRIFICE ARMBARS!! Bandido makes it to THIRTY but he isn’t done!!

Bandido makes it to FORTY, and then FIFTY!! Yuta’s head is almost as red as Bandido’s outfit as we get to SIXTY, and the SLAM!! Cover, TWO!?! Yuta survives and Bryan is proud of his student again. But tag to Penta, Fenix goes up, “CERO! MIEDO!” But Yuta slips free, only for Penta to SUPERKICK! TIGHTROPE WALK KICK! But Moxley CUTTERS Penta! Fenix SCREW HIGH KICKS Mox, but Claudio CLOBBERS Fenix! Penta SUPERKICKS, whips, Claudio reverses but Penta goes up and over, BACKSTABBER!! Fans are thunderous and Bryan has to admit, the lucha trio is incredible.

Penta crawls, as does Yuta, hot tag to Bandido! He HOTSHOTS Yuta, springboards but Yuta moves! Bandido FLOPS, then distracts the ref! Claudio & Moxley drag Bandido out to ASSISTED PILEDRIVER to the floor!! Bryan loves it while fans boo, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta snap suplexes Bandido up and over, then drags Bandido back up. He fists bumps Claudio, puts Bandido in the ring, then tags Moxley. Moxley keeps Bandido from the corner with a facelock, but fans rally up. Bandido fights to his feet, only for Moxley to HALF HATCH! Moxley then tags Claudio in, they stomps Bandido, then Claudio grabs an arm to grind it down. Bandido endures, fights to the ROPEBREAK, but Claudio brings him up. Bandido throws body shots but Claudio chinbars to keep him from the corner. Claudio whips and CLOBBERS Bandido, then flexes. Tag to Moxley and the BCC stomp Bandido again.

Moxley gets the legs to stomp Bandido int he stomach. Moxley then turns Bandido with a HALF CRAB! Bandido reaches out, Yuta tries to keep the rope from him but the ref reprimands. Fans rally up, Bandido gets the ROPEBREAK! Moxley lets go to bring Bandido up and he throws knee after knee. Moxley whips, Bandido sunset flips, but Moxley rolls through to KNEE Bandido down! Cover, TWO, but Moxley gets the arms for DRAGON STOMPS! Moxley drags Bandido to a cover, TWO! Moxley grabs an arm to hammerlock it and grind Bandido down.

Bryan celebrates with his guys, though the fans aren’t as happy about it. Will the BCC soon look to take over AEW one division at a time?


Backstage interview with The Elite.

Alex Marvez is with Hangman Page and the Young Bucks while Matt Jackson is having his foot taped up. Anarchy in the Arena II was perhaps one of the most brutal matches in AEW history, what is the status of Matt and the rest of the team three days later? Matt says a long time ago, he told Hangman that he brings out the good in them. Safe to say, after Sunday, the BCC bring out the worst in them. Never thought the day would come where Matt would try to melt the face of another man with an explosive sneaker, and alas, here we are.

Nick, a big bandage on his forehead, recounts Hangman saying that they are the heart, the soul and the spirit of AEW. Not one setback is gonna keep them down! Hangman says they are still standing, still swinging, and still breathing! To be a group that prides themselves on being the best, the BCC sure love to use numbers. But the truth is- Wait, in walks the Dark Order. They tell Hangman, “Good to see you.” Oh, did Matt hurt his foot? Silver says Hangman is with his new-old best friends, they should probably just go. Sorry about that. Hangman wants to respond to that, but Marvez has one more question.

It has been said, rumored, that Kenny Omega has left the country and gone home to Canada based on everything that’s happened the last few weeks. Any word on that? Hangman says Kenny is hurt, he is pissed, and yes he is out of the country, but he’s not in Canada. Hangman excuses himself to chase after The Dark Order, what is the status of that friendship? What is the status of The Cleaner after further betrayal by men he once called friends?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Double or Nothing is in the rearview mirror, and he welcomes out two men who were very active that night, Jay White & Juice Robinson, Bullet Club Gold! The Switchblade & Rock Hard make their way out, and White says the money’s here! Schiavone says their issue with Ricky Starks seems never ending. They get in close and he says they attacked Starks backstage! White starts by saying that Double or Nothing was a great night. Fans cheer and White applauds, too. But White bets Starks feels he’s on top of the world after he eliminated Jay & Juice from the battle royal.

But as a reminder to everyone, especially to Ricky Starks, he’s not the International Champion. he lost that battle royal just like he lost to White. And Juice says that brings them to FTR! BCG wants to know, WHY, Dax & Cash, did you come to the aid of “sweet boy” Ricky? It doesn’t make sense! There’s no way FTR are friends with Ricky Starks, because we all know Ricky Starks ain’t got no friends! White says we also know FTR are “a couple of Southern boys,” so maybe they’re a little bit slow. And they look dumb, too, have you seen them? You heard them talk? They sound pretty dumb, too!

White just didn’t actually think they were dumb enough to get in the Bang Bang Gang’s business! But wait, here comes FTR! Dax & Cash are still AEW World Tag Team Champions after Mark Briscoe saw who were his real friends on Sunday night. The champs get in the ring but White uses Schiavone as a shield. Seems FTR are that dumb. Juice says keep this cordial. This isn’t them being dumb, they’re here to apologize! White isn’t so sure, but maybe Juice is on to something. Maybe they’re also here because they wanna join BULLET CLUB GOLD~! Yeah? Huh? White says FTR are ready to be some Gold members!

So do they wanna join the top shelf gunslingers? Top Shelf Top Guys! If they wanted to join, all they had to do was ask. Just make sure you do it politely. White holds out the mic to Dax, then drops it as he reaches out. Fans boo and Dax glares at White. But then Juice sucker punches Dax! FISTFUL O’ SILVER DOLLARS!! Cash TACKLES Juice, but White goes after Cash! The BCG mug Cash while Dax writhes, clutching his jaw! Juice drags Dax up, JUICE IS LOOSE!! “Take that!” White gets Cash for a BLADERUNNER!! “That’s what you get!!” But here comes Starks! Starks runs BCG off and grabs the mic.

“Hey you two cowards! I’m sick of you two every single week! So how about this? You keep that jabroni ass freak in the back, and you and me, Jay, we finish it next week on Dynamite! YOU PUNK ASS B*TCH!!” The Absolute throws out the ultimatum, will he and King Switch finally put an end to this?


Tony Khan has an announcement for AEW Collision.

“It’s great to be here tonight in San Diego. The last few weeks, we made some announcements regarding the debut of AEW Saturday Night Collision, starting June 17th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. I’m here tonight to give you a little more information about the debut of AEW Collision. I’m here to announce that AEW Collision, beginning June 17th, will feature… CM Punk!” Fans go wild hearing that! The Best in the World, the polarizing Plus Delta of AEW, is making his return in his hometown! What kind of collision are we going to say for that debut episode?


Triple Threat: Swerve Strickland VS “Big Bill” Morrissey VS Trent Beretta!

The Blackjack Battle Royal was a bust for everyone hoping to take the title off Orange Cassidy, but there was a lot of beef between these three men during all the chaos. Who scores a much easier win under 33% odds versus the one in 21?

The bell rings and Swerve bails out so Bill can’t get him. Fans boo but then Bill turns his attention to Trent. Fans fire up and Bill storms up on Trent. Trent slips away to not be cornered, then he CHOPS Bill! Bill scowls and dusts himself off. Bill storms up again, Trent slips away again and headlocks. Bill powers up but Trent holds on. Bill powers out, Trent ducks ‘n’ dodges and DIVES onto Swerve on the outside!

Kris Statlander speaks.

“Today’s date is May 28th, 2023. It’s the PPV, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I am officially cleared. I am your NEW TBS Champion. It’s been a long time coming, and this whole time, I was never really sure if I deserved it. Not sure if I was someone deserving of this moment. It just really shows me how much not only does this place mean to me, but how much I mean to AEW. It’s just so nice to physically hold something to feel like you deserve it for once. Not only am I gonna prove to everyone that they were right, but I’m gonna prove to myself that this is my time. And I’m gonna have the best damn title reign anyone’s ever seen.” But she’s already putting the title on the line, will her time be short?


Renee Paquette is on stage.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass.” Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn are here, and Renee says that unfortunately, thing didn’t go their way in that AEW World Trios Championship match. They asked for this time, so the floor is theirs. Billy says Renee is right, things did not go quite the way they’d planned. But that’s okay! Because anyone can get beat at any given time. Billy’s biggest regret is that he let his guys down. Caster says that Billy shouldn’t blame himself. They win as a team and lose as a team. They won a lot as a trio, undefeated until facing House of Black.

And see, Caster is the best wrestler alive, Bowens is the Five Tool Player, and Billy is the legend! They ARE The Acclaimed, they are the People’s Choice. Bowens says that is right. And their goal remains the same. A few months ago, Acclaimed were screwed outta tag team gold. Fans boo that, but the Acclaimed want gold back! “And this man, this legend, after over 30 YEARS of giving his all to the business, of giving his all to each and every one of you, giving his all to us, this man deserves to hold gold one more time!” Fans love the sound of that! They chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”

Bowens says do not worry about it, Billy, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So the goal remains the same, and the three SCISSOR FINGER~! Will they cut down the House of Black one way or another? Or will the House always win?


Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

The bile rises in his throat as he has to say these names. “Here comes… Don Callis! And… Konosuke Takeshita.” Fans boo as Callis & Takeshita walk their way out to no music, but with highlights of Callis helping the BCC cheat the Elite. Callis & Takeshita go to the ring to join Schiavone, and Schiavone says, “Sunday night, Double or Nothing, not so sure. We talked to Bryan Danielson, whose side are you on? Whose side are you with? One thing we know for sure, you apparently have yourself a new protégé.” Callis grins but fans boo, and Callis says he sincerely hopes that such boos are for Kenny Omega! No, they’re for Callis.

Callis continues to say he is the REAL victim here! He has done everything for Kenny Omega! The booing gets louder! And they’re even flipping Callis off! Callis says Kenny only had what he had because of Callis! The AEW World Championship? All Callis! Kenny chose his friends. Every morning, Callis has to get up and look at the scar on his head! 23 stitches! And Callis blames it all on Kenny! Kenny destroyed Callis’ family! And maybe Callis lost a nephew, but he gained a son in Konosuke Takeshita! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Callis says Takeshita is the best athlete he has ever seen in wrestling! 6’3″, 240 pounds, and you know who he’s better than?

Konosuke is better than Rikidōzan! Better than Antonio Inoki! Better than Keiji Mutoh! And yes, better than Kazuchika Okada! But you know who else he’s better than? We’ll see it very soon, too! Konosuke is better than Kenny Omega! Konosuke gets the mic to tell everyone Japanese that they’re all stupid! Kenny Omega is nothing! And they all know it! Then in English, “We will destroy the Elite! We will destroy Kenny… Omega!” Callis tells Kenny that he destroyed his family so Callis is building a new one! And that new family will cut the Elite out of All Elite Wrestling! Fans boo as hard as they’ve ever booed before, but will that not stop what Callis is planning for Kenny Omega?


Arn Anderson & Wardlow speak.

The Enforcer says that before Double or Nothing and the ladder match, he cut through all the BS and asked Wardlow one question: What are you willing to do to Christian Cage? Everyone’s giving Arn a bunch of hoopla about biting that giant lizard’s thumb. But Wardlow got manhandled, and when you snatch Arn by the neck, what you think’s gonna happen? Wardlow says Luchasaurus found out not to get involved with their business. Arn wants to know what Wardlow’s willing to do, and he answered that. There are no more limits! If Luchasaurus wants to be next, Wardlow will be more than happy to finish the job!


Orange Cassidy & Darby Allin VS The Gates of Agony w/ Prince Nana!

Freshly Squeezed is still the AEW International Champion after facing the steepest odds possible, while the Relentless One could not overcome MJF, Sammy Guevara & Jack Perry all at once to become AEW World Champion.

Fans boo but The Mogul Embassy is pleased while Dynamite goes picture in picture. Kaun drags Darby but he’s deadweight. Kaun gets Darby up and into the ring, covers, TWO! Kaun rains down fists on Darby, lets off to soak up the heat, and then he drags Darby back up. Kaun fishhooks the nose but the ref reprimands.

But the rest of the Mogul Embassy makes their way to the ring! Swerve & Cage glare right at Darby & Cassidy, and Liona & Kaun both get up. But wait! Here comes STIIIIING! The Icon is back, and he has his baseball bat! Fans are thunderous as Sting steps into the ring and the Embassy backs off. Will Swerve’s house have to worry about the showtime?


MJF speaks.

“AEW fans, AEW fans! Oh my God, clock’s ticking and you’re running out of competition. Darby Allin, you sweet, sweet little emo b*tch. Once again, you found yourself victim to a maneuver as simple as a headlock takeover. Now if that’s not telling about my competition around here, I don’t know what is! You are running out of gladiators for me to slay, you are running out of people you could possibly claim that are better than me. And you know it. Once again, it has been made abundantly clear, and this time, in Sin City, that nobody is on the level of the Devil!” Will anyone ever exorcise MJF away from the AEW World Championship?


Tony Schiavone is once again in the ring.

He welcomes us back, and thanks San Diego for being part of this great night. But wait, here comes Hook! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, the undefeated FTW Champion, steps in the ring. Schiavone says Hook once again helped the Hardy Boyz against Ethan Page at Double or Nothing. But then, what is next for Hook? But wait, someone interrupts. It’s Jose of La Faccion Ingobernable! He has Dralistico y Preston Vance with him, and he “apologizes” for interrupting Hook’s time, but this is the only way LFI is gonna get TV time here! There are two studs here who have never been given opportunities the way Hook has.

Fans boo but Jose says they know it’s true. Rush is too dangerous to be on TV, so he isn’t here right now. Salud, Rush. But where are the fans when they need LFI? When LFI is looking for chances and they get NONE? But they’re gonna start taking opportunities! Show this perro what LFI is about! Dralistico & Vance mug Hook, but here comes JUNGLE BOY! Jack Perry has helped Hook out before, and he’s here again, with a chair! JB JAMS Dralistico, JAMS Vance, and then he SMACKS them both down! Jose sneaks up, but JB sees him first. Jose runs away into the ring, but that’s where Hook is!

Hook clinches to hit the EL CAMINO! Jose flops out of the ring, JB joins Hook in the ring, and they fist bump. Will #JungleHook reunite to shut LFI up?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee is with Saraya, Ruby Soho, and the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm. How does it feel this time around to be champion? Oh, c’mon, look at her! She’s having a great time! She has the world title, the world’s best friends, and she couldn’t be doing any better. A lot of people say she’s just very lucky, but luck’s got nothing to do with this. Toni’s been wrestling since she was 13 years old, a child really! Over half her life! That’s because she’s been all over the world, carrying everyone’s bags and doing everything she can to get to this point.

The Outcasts look around this locker room, and they see no one who could carry Toni’s bags. Ruby says Toni is being very humble. No one anywhere could match Toni’s work ethic. Toni is gracing the AEW fans with her presence during the House Rules live shows. And she’ll even defend this title. That is what a fighting champion does! Oh so humble! Saraya loves Toni so much. But really, there is really no one worthy of carrying Toni’s bags. Not at all. But they’ll keep looking out. And as for “luck,” the only lucky ones are the fans. Who will be “lucky” enough to have some #ToniTime this summer?


AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Nyla Rose!

The Galaxy’s Greatest made perhaps the greatest return possible, answering the open challenge of the cocky Jade Cargill. Not only did she end Jade’s reign, she ended the undefeated streak! But will Kris regret putting it all on the line so soon? Or will she start her own incredible reign?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Mama Statlander holds onto her baby!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two tie up. The two are in a deadlock, but then they break. Kris shoves Nyla, they tie up again, and they go around. Nyla puts Kris in a corner, the ref counts, and Nyla lets off. Kris dodges the cheap shot to fire off forearms! Nyla dodges to get some air, but Kris SHOTGUNS Nyla down! Fans fire up, Kris is after Nyla but the scoop doesn’t work. Nyla scoops Kris but she slips free to scoop again! Nyla is still really big, and she scoops Kris to SLAM her! SENTON flops as Kris moves! Kris wraps on the body scissors! Nyla endures, those knee braces are right in the ribs!

Nyla scrambles, gets the ROPEBREAK, and Kris lets go. Kris storms up but Nyla shoulders into her! And bumps her off the buckles! Kris falls and Nyla stalks her. Nyla kicks Kris around, drags her up, and brings her over to ropes. Kris fights the suplex and tries to suplex Nyla! Nyla CLUBS Kris, CLAWS her back, but Kris fights with body shots! Fans rally and Kris still tries a suplex. Nyla knees low, brings Kris around, and snap suplexes her into buckles! We see Taya Valkyrie is watching backstage, surely upset that she didn’t get the TBS title off Jade. Nyla grins as she soaks up the heat and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla taunts Kris, drags her up, and then bumps her off buckles. Nyla stomps Kris, digs her boots in, but the ref counts. Nyla has Kris on the apron before she lets off.

Nyla lets go, Kris goes to a corner, but Nyla RAMS into her!

Nyla pulls the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Nyla lets off and Kris hobbles to another corner. Nyla is after her in the corner with body shots! Nyla then goes corner to corner to ELBOW Kris, and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Nyla keeps Kris down with a chinlock. Kris endures the knee in the back, fans rally up, and Kris fights, only for Nyla to CLUB her in the chest! Nyla clamps onto the arms to keep Kris down, but still Kris fights. Fans rally, kris throws body shots and elbows, but Nyla CHOP BLOCKS! Kris falls, Nyla gets that leg, and has a modified Half Crab! Kris endures, so Nyla stomps away on the leg before going back to the Crab!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Kris fights with her free leg. Nyla lets go, Kris kips up, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!! Kris is still in this but Nyla runs, only to miss the splash! Kris runs to DISCUS LARIAT! Nyla stays up to Kris LARIATS again, ROCKS Nyla and ROUNDHOUSES her! Fans fire up with Kris and she runs in at the corner, UPPERCUT! Kris goes side to side, KNEE! Nyla staggers, Kris brings her in, BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Kris is surprised! But Kris pounds the mat and fans rally with her. Kris drags Nyla to a drop zone and climbs up the corner.

Kris reaches the top but Nyla trips her up! Kris hits the buckles on the way down! Nyla runs in to SPLASH! Kris sits down, Nyla calls her shot and runs again, but Kris bails out! Nyla stops the cannonball to go tot he apron, CANNONBALL to the floor! Nyla grins and she brings Kris up to RAM her into railing! Fans boo but Nyla runs in to CANNONBALL against the railing!

Fans fire up as Kris aims, to 450 SPLASH!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

The Galaxy’s Greatest has her first win as champion in the books! Taya is not amused, though. Will La Wera Loca get one more shot at that title? Will the third time be the charm? Or will things not go her way now that Mama’s home?

Mixed Tag: Chris Jericho & Saraya VS Adam Cole & Britt Baker!

It would seem the Unsanctioned Match at Double or Nothing was not enough for anyone to end this! The Wizard & The Knight called out the Undisputed Couple for this match, and they obliged! Will Jericho & Saraya be the ones standing tall with a fireball? Or will San Diego be all about The Boom?

Saraya covers Britt, shouts at the ref, and the ref returns, TWO! Saraya drags Britt up to HEADBUTT her down! Saraya paces around Britt, drags her up, and throws her down. Saraya points to Jericho, they “tag,” and then Jericho eggs Britt on. The ref tells Jericho to get out, that’s not the kind of match this is.

Jericho throws in a chair, and even the ring bell! Cole and Britt grab those for themselves, and that makes Jericho back off. Can Cole & Britt finally move on from The Wizard and his schemes to go get themselves some gold?

My Thoughts:

A very good aftermath show for AEW after only a very good Double or Nothing. Good promos from Kris Statlander, Wardlow and MJF to follow their title wins. A little surprising that Kris had her first defense so soon but I suppose this gets it out of the way, and it gets Kris going on doing her best to match Jade’s streak. Taya watching backstage makes some sense, and I sense her turning Heel over being denied twice. Sadly, I think Taya is going to go 0-3 for the TBS Champion, because if she didn’t beat Jade, she’s not going to beat the person who beat Jade. And I do appreciate that Wardlow is calling out Luchasaurus, he’s being a proactive champion.

MJF of course isn’t, he’s just expecting AEW to find somebody. But I feel like, with Tony Khan letting us know CM Punk IS returning, that’s just the natural course of things for the world title. AEW Collision’s success is not fully dependent on CM Punk being back, but it will definitely incentivize Chicago fans to show up. But I love that there were plenty of fans who hated that news as there were who loved it in San Diego. And MJF VS Punk is an obvious route given how the Pillars he cheated at Double or Nothing are now going to other stories in the meantime. Sammy was the only absent one, but he’s surely preparing to be a parent.

Darby & Cassidy had an awesome tag match with The Gates of Agony, and I figured Darby & Cassidy would win. Swerve also won an awesome Triple Threat against Bill and Trent, and of course Swerve is moving on to a title. I feel like Swerve should be the one to dethrone Cassidy. He’s got The Mogul Embassy to help him cheat so that technically keeps Cassidy strong, and then Swerve can bring that title into a feud with Darby or in whatever finish we FINALLY get of Swerve VS Keith Lee. Then Jungle Boy returns to teaming with Hook just because there’s no other singles title open. JungleHook VS LFI is still going to be fun, and maybe we get Jungle Boy VS Rush. But honestly, I almost thought JB was gonna turn on Hook there. Heel Jack Perry taking the FTW Championship could be pretty cool.

Great promo from Bullet Club Gold and then great brawl with FTR and Starks. Starks VS White is going to end things one way or another, but I feel like it has to be White’s win. Then BCG VS FTR can be for the AEW World Tag Team Championships going into All In London. Speaking of titles, Championship Rampage is loaded, though I’m surprised there wasn’t just another Battle of the Belts special. I wonder if Battle of the Belts goes away with Collision being on Saturdays. Pretty sure all champions retain, though, because NONE of those titles are AEW property. Also, I feel that’s irresponsible to automatically say it’s Shibata VS Moriarty when Shibata VS Coughlin is airing tomorrow night on ROH.

The Acclaimed had a good promo with Renee on stage, and I figured they’d stick together and try again. They’ll probably choose a Open House Rules stipulation next time, I look forward to something wild from them. Really good promo from The Outcasts, and Storm could face just about anyone in her first defense of the world title. From how things went in the main event, pretty sure it’s Shida since she is still fighting against The Outcasts. Britt & Cole of course win against Jericho & Saraya, but that was a pretty fun Mixed Tag. And if Shida doesn’t beat Storm, I bet we get Britt VS Storm at like All Out or something.

Great opener of BCC VS Lucha Bros & Bandido, and Bryan was pretty good on commentary. I figured BCC would win, they’re going to keep things rolling from Double or Nothing. And good promo from The Elite and Dark Order, because it kept up the continuity from over the years. Hangman saying Kenny was out of the country but not in Canada totally hints at him being in Japan to reconnect with Kota Ibushi, which is definitely the next phase of this.  Elite plus Ibushi VS BCC plus Konosuke, Blood & Guts, that has to be it. And speaking of, Callis and Konosuke had a great promo, especially factoring in that nuclear Heel heat Callis has. Like, every other Heel wishes they had the level of booing, jeering and middle fingers Callis had aimed at him.

My Score: 8.7/10
