Well, that wasn’t exactly legit! Leyla had help from a little friend hiding under the ring. Will Leyla use whatever she has to in order to continue towards the top?
Wait, Red Velvet rushes out. Velvet was the mutual friend between these two, but she’s clearly siding with Kris over this one. Will the Chef have to be the one to set Leyla right?
Tony Schiavone goes to the ring.
He says tonight, we have a very special guest. Let’s bring that man out right now! Wait, the music and the tron! Kenny Omega?! Nope. Just Don Callis. Callis of course represents The Cleaner in all things as his adviser, but he completely trolled everyone using Omega’s theme song. Callis says, “What? Were you expecting somebody else?” DUH! But sorry, we don’t get Omega tonight. Tonight, we will listen to Callis! Fans tell him to STFU. Callis doesn’t know why the fans are complaining, he and Omega gave us the best world title run in the history of this business!
Multiple title matches, multiple match of the year candidates, multiple five star matches! And all while Omega had catastrophic injuries! And Callis blames the FANS for that! They couldn’t get enough Omega! “One more five-star match, please! One more world title, Kenny!” The fans sucked the life outta Omega! And Callis was thinking of having Omega here, but when he saw what was on the card, he said no! He couldn’t stand the level of violence on this card! A ladder match, Moxley VS Danielson ripping each other’s heads off, and a dog collar match! But it’ll be a great night for The Elite, as Callis expects the Young Bucks to win those AEW World Tag Team titles!
And even Adam Cole has been doing a great job for Kenny. In fact, he’s even created a group within the group. Some might call it a sleeper cell or something, who knows. But we all understand that if Omega were here, HE would be winning the world title in the main event. But since Omega isn’t here, Callis is very confident Adam Cole will be your NEW AEW World Champion! And Callis thinks that’s great! Adam Cole will be a fantastic transitional champion, up until the second Omega walks back through those doors and takes his place as the AEW World Champion! Because as we know, there is only one diamond in this business, and his name is Kenny BAH GAWD Omega.
Callis has stated his opinion and his prediction, but will the Best Bout Machine be able to fulfill everything Callis promised?

He’s holding a clipboard, and says this is the best part of being part of AEW. This is a contract signing right here live! A year ago, here at Revolution, AEW signed a great competitor in Christian Cage. Now we sign a young man in the formative years of his career. Schiavone called this man’s matches not too long ago. So it is with great pride that we see The Realest, SHANE “SWERVE” STRICKLAND! Swerve swaggers out on stage and fans are fired up! Schiavone says it is great to be working with Swerve again, and Swerve signs on the dotted line!
Swerve takes a moment to soak it all in before he speaks. “Ey yo. The Real is back. I can go on and on about all the dream matches I’m gonna have in AEW. I can go on and on about all the titles I’m eventually gonna take. You’re a witness of it. But all I really gotta say is I’ve got a question to ask all y’all.” But fans already chant, “WHO’S HOUSE? SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve asks, “Whose house?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” “Whose house?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” “I love you, too.” Swerve is now All Elite, how long will it take for his house to have gold?

Winner: Hangman Adam Page, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)
The better Adam did win, because that is Hangman Adam Page!! The Cowboy holds up the title, having proven himself once again! And he even shakes Cole’s hand to show his respect. Who will be next for Hangman to go to the limit with?
This was the biggest AEW PPV, it was the bloodiest AEW PPV, and I dare say it was the BEST AEW PPV ever! Once again, AEW even makes their preshow awesome with three great matches that could’ve easily been on a Dynamite or Rampage. A great Heel win for Leyla, despite the promos in the build sounding like Kris was the Heel. A great win for Hook on the biggest night in his career. And a great Six Man Tag for House of Black VS Death Triangle & Erick, but clearly this isn’t done until Fenix can be part of the feud again. And then I noticed throughout the night, there were a lot of Tombstone piledrivers. Perhaps AEW is shouting out Undertaker since he’s going into WWE’s Hall of Fame?
Jericho VS Kingston was a great choice for opener, and it was booked in a great way given Jericho’s disrespect towards Kingston. Kingston winning was the right move, and in a way, so was Jericho not shaking his hand. They could leave it at that, they could escalate for the Spring going towards Double or Nothing, either path would work great for Kingston. The Triple Threat Tag was amazing stuff, and the finish wasn’t at all what I expected. Jurassic Express cleaned up and got a legit win, that is big for Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus. I’m thinking a team like Santana & Ortiz will step up next for a great 2v2 feud.
The Face of the Revolution Ladder Match was also awesome, and for just a few seconds, I thought Cassidy was going to win because, for one, just how hilarious it’d be to see him with the “brass ring” inner tube. But in the end, Wardlow won as I expected. I just wish Starks didn’t have to take that ladder bomb. He has neck issues, AEW, why would you make him take such a move? We all knew Jade was going to stay undefeated, but she basically had win entrance to make it clear to those not paying attention. Tay put up a good fight, but Jade continues on, maybe she’ll take on Anna Jay next.
Holy crap that Dog Collar Match. “Bloody” barely covers it, that went above anything I could’ve expected. Masterful storytelling from the moment Punk made his entrance bringing back his ROH theme and ring gear. Wardlow played his part perfectly, too, that was even better than my idea of him clobbering MJF with the TNT title. Punk wins, MJF will have beef with Wardlow, maybe we get MJF VS Wardlow at Double Or Nothing. And there’s a good chance the TNT title will be part of it so MJF can literally take that title off Wardlow. The AEW Women’s World title match was very good but had the misfortune of following Punk VS MJF.
I will say, Britt’s getting good Heel Heat even from me over using her helpers yet again. But also getting the news that we’ll have Hirsch VS Rosa, winner goes to St. Patrick’s Day Slam, did they really rob Rosa a PPV win to give her a title win on Dynamite? Seems a bit lame to me, but I suppose Rosa getting the title is the main thing AEW wants us to focus on. Moxley VS Bryan was another bloody fight, and in a very subtle Taker reference, that triangle hold jackknife was how Taker once got beat by Kurt Angle. But anyway, them brawling and WILLIAM REGAL showing up to sort them out was amazing. I hope Regal is the manager in the faction that these guys are creating.
That Tornado Trios match was wild in a very good way, but I really feared for those guys during those table spots. At least Sammy kinda learned his lesson from his Last Man Standing with Matt Hardy a couple years ago, in how to line up tables properly for spots like that. The Faces winning here really surprised me given a Face won the title on Rampage. But I suppose this is more for the AHFO story of Hardy leaving and Andrade assuming full control. And then in the main event, Adam Page VS Adam Cole was everything we knew it’d be and more, and I loved how the fans had all those Adam chants. When a crowd is good, it really adds to things.
Hangman retains, as I figured, and given how Callis was talking crap on Cole while hyping Omega’s return, we are just one moment away from The Elite OG VS The Undisputed Era while Hangman defends against any number of guys on the roster.
My Score: 9.7/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (7/4/22)
Detroit gets Elevated!
Spend the Fourth of July with Best Friends!
AEW brings some fireworks to Motor City with half a dozen matches for Dark: Elevation! Will you be celebrating with Best Friends for the Fourth?
- Anna Jay w/ Negative One VS Megan Myers; Jay wins.
- Best Friends VS Isaiah Broner & GPA; Best Friends wins.
- Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS Ryan Jones & Cage Alexander; Lethal & Singh win.
- Anthony Ogogo VS Project MONIX; Ogogo wins.
- Yuka Sakazaki & Hikaru Shida VS Laynie Luck & Heather Reckless; Sakazaki & Shida win.
- Six Man Tag: The Dark Order (Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & 10) VS The Factory; The Dark Order wins.
A fun line-up but with the usual obvious outcomes. Obviously with Chuck Taylor sticking around, he and Trent Beretta are back at it as Best Friends. They’ll get a good win here, but who knows if they’ll get back up towards tag titles or not. Good to see Shida is back, she and Sakazaki will also get a good win. While both the AEW Women’s World Championship and TBS Championship both have stories, this match could still help Shida get going again towards a title story of her own. And the Dark Order’s Uno, Reynolds & Vance will surely beat QT, Solo & Comoroto.

Darby TOSSES Nese up and out and onto Sterling, Darby ELIMINATES Nese! Then Darby DIVES through the ropes to smash Nese into railing for good measure! The countdown is ending, though, and joining the blue ring is THE BUTCHER! Bunny accompanies him to the ring and he hauls Darby up to SWING into the railing again and again! Butcher then drags Darby’s dead weight back to the ring.
Team Taz tries to throw Hangman out together but he fights them both off. Butcher stalks Darby, and we already have another man entering the red ring. It’s JOHN SILVER! The Dark Order’s Meat Man is here to help his old buddy, Hangman, and he RAMS Hobbs! Hobbs wobbles, Silver dodges Starks to ENZIGURI! Sliver gets around Hobbs, but Hobbs is too much to back suplex alone! So Hangman helps out Silver for a DOUBLE BACK SUPLEX! Silver and Hangman stare down, and they HUG! Fans love it, but then Hangman grabs Silver! Oh, it’s just a fake out to keep him on his toes. But then Silver- No, wait, another fake out!
Hangman stomps away on Starks in a corner. The countdown is done again, and entering the blue ring is Max Caster! “Platinum on the mic, with my legendary status. I’m about to do the new man that’s in the palace. Now tell me who can stop me? I’m about to beat you bitches down like you Rudy Giuliani! And none of y’all above me. I’ma win the title, then Tony Khan will hug me! Remember the name in Detroit. Everybody loves The Acclaimed.” Silver dances to the beat as Bowens says, “DETROIT, MICHIGAN~! The Acclaimed have arrived!” And it seems Billy Gunn is still part of their team.
Caster gets in finally, and Butcher is right on him! Caster and Butcher stop and come to an agreement to go after Darby, but he BOOTS each of them away!

Penta dodges Rush to SUPERKICK! Then SLINGBLADE to the ramp! Fans fire up as Penta KICKS Rush back to ringside, then puts him back in. “CERO MIEDO!” echoes out and that upsets Andrade.

The Limitless One and Swerve won’t have to worry about getting in each other’s way, but what if they end up the last two left? For now, Keith gets in as Rush snapmares Hangman, Swerve smiles and conducts “OH~ BASK IN HIS GLO~RY!” for his teammate.

DELETE!” Hardy gets in to go after his former mercenaries with big forearms and elbows! Matt bumps Blade off buckles again and again, allowing Swerve to help Darby with Butcher.

Penta runs to RANA Rush up and out and both men are on the apron! Penta stands Rush up, they CHOP each other more and more! Rush shoves but Penta SUPERKICKS! Penta waistlocks Rush but Rush holds onto ropes to LOW BLOW MULE KICK! Seems that’s an Ingobernables signature! But Penta holds onto Rush and brings him along! They both hit the floor, DOUBLE ELIMINATION! Dustin DECKS Starks, Hobbs fights off Keith, and Andrade aims at Penta with a chair!
Penta gets up while Jose mugs Alex Abrahantes, and Penta turns around for Andrade to CHUCK the chair into his face! The countdown is over, and joining the blue ring is the Heavy Metal Rebel, Frankie Kazarian! Rush snatches Penta’s mask!! Insult to injury!

Bunny is there to laugh at her former boss while the countdown is zero again. Dante Martin heads for the red ring! Angel Dorado slips under Starks to KANGAROO KICK! Starks flounders, Dante kicks him out and Starks does his best to keep his feet up! Hobbs goes after Dante with a full nelson! Starks gets in, Team Taz mugs Dante, things still not settled between all of them. Darby and Swerve try to kick out the mercenaries!

Kaz whips Blade at Butcher but Blade reverses! Butcher holds ropes down but Kaz manages to stay in!
Kaz DECKS Butcher, but Blade clotheslines Kaz out to ELIMINATE him! Another countdown is ending, and the final entrant for the red ring is the House of Black’s Brody King!!

Backstage interview with Hook.
Alex Marvez sits with the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil on the couch and thanks him for taking this time. Last week, Hook got a big win over NJPW’s The DKC as part of Forbidden Door weekend. But the world wants to know, what is next for Hook? Hook just eats his chips. Well, Marvez did see some of Hook’s previous interviews, to call them that. Marvez is starting to think Hook is more of a “go with the flow” kind of guy. Hook stands up, pushes Marvez down, and tells him, “That’s the problem, Alex. Most people don’t think. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.” Hook is a deep thinker, it seems. Has he already seen four steps ahead of the AEW roster?
AEW World Tag Team Championship Eliminator: The Young Bucks VS Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI!
Matt & Nick Jackson feel alone right now without the rest of the Undisputed Elite, but they have the gold to keep them warm. Will they be able to shine bright in this high stakes match? Or will it be lights out, courtesy of #BISHAMON?
The teams sort out and Nick starts with the Fierce Warrior, Hirooki Goto. They circle, tie up, and Goto powers Nick to a corner. The ref counts, Goto lets off at 4, and fans applaud the clean break. Nick and Goto go again, they tie up and Nick puts Goto on ropes. Nick lets off, but then kicks low! Nick fires off punches and stomps to the corner, then whips corner to corner. Goto bounces off buckles to run Nick over! Tag to Hashi, they double whip Nick to run him over! Matt wants in but the ref says he missed the tag, Hashi runs for the hip toss senton! Fans fire up as Goto & Hashi intercept Matt with a kick! And they drum away on his back!
Nick gets up, but he gets a kick and the drumming! Fans fire up while Nick is punch drunk. Hashi CLUBS Nick, whips him to ropes, but Nick holds ropes to BOOT back. Tag to Matt, Nick aims for a corner but Hashi blocks the buckle bump to give a buckle bump! Matt runs in but into an elbow! Hashi runs in, into the NORTHERN LIGHTS! The Polar Express begins! Another, and another, and then Goto gets in, for a DOUBLE NORTHERN LIGHTS! Fans fire up and Matt flexes! Matt gives Nick a boost to ESCALARA! Direct hit on Bishamon and fans fire up while Rampage goes picture in picture.
Nick puts Hashi in for Matt, and Matt paces around the Head Hunter. Matt stomps Hashi, waves hi to fans, then throws down fists. Matt drags Hashi up, Nick says “SUCK IT!” and Matt whips Hashi into the corner. The Bucks coordinate, CLOTHESLINE ENZIGURI COMBO! Matt hits a fist drop, then he keeps on Hashi with haymakers. Matt throws more hands, pie faces Hashi, and eggs him on. Hashi throws body shots back! Hashi CHOPS Matt, CHOPS him again, but Matt rakes eyes! Matt whips, Hashi reverses but Matt slips out and trips Goto! Matt then shoulders into Hashi, slingshots up and over, and runs to LEAPING LARIAT!
Matt kips up, then mockingly goes to the Bishamon corner to reach out for a tag. But then Goto yanks Matt down! Nick PENALTY KICKS Goto from the apron, ROCKS Hashi, then springboard DOUBLE STOMPS Hashi down! Nick soaks up the cheers and jeers while Matt gets back in the ring. Matt KNEES Hashi in the back, kicks him around, and Matt paces around while Rampage goes to break.
Rampage returns and Nick reels Hashi in, but Hashi suplexes Nick first! Fans fire up while both men are down, and both men crawl to their corners. Hot tags to Matt and Goto! Goto rallies with shoulders and elbows, then a hip toss! Matt goes to a corner, Goto runs in to MURAMASA! And BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Goto drags Matt up, fireman’s carries, but Matt slips off and ROCKS Goto with a haymaker! And another! Matt runs, Nick tags in, Matt trips Goto up to whip. Goto reverses but Matt goes up and over, Nick SHINING WIZARDS! Matt cravats, Nick gives him the boost, SLICED BREAD! SHINING WIZARD again and Nick covers, Hashi breaks it!
Matt drags Hashi up, he and Nick mug him and toss him out. The Bucks drag Goto up to whip him into the corner. Nick runs in, Goto dodges and CLOBBERS Matt! Goto then fireman’s carries Nick! Nick slips off, Goto backs him down, and Hashi runs in to CLOTHESLINE in the corner! Feed to Goto’s kick, Goto hooks Nick up and Hashi runs, GOTO GOTO HUNTER! Cover, TWO!!

Matt gets Hashi back up in a gut wrench, and Nick springboards from ring to ring! SUPER MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, the Bucks win!
Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall (deny Bishamon a title shot)
Goto & Hashi could not shut down the AEW World Tag Team Champions, and they will return home to Japan without a title shot. Will others from NJPW look to creep through the Forbidden Door to try their hand? Or are the Bucks on to some big prey of their own?
AEW hears from Jonathan Gresham and Tully Blanchard.
“Last week, I made a handshake agreement with Tully Blanchard. And I’m a man of my word. I said that Lee Moriarty and myself would take on two of his best clients in a tag team match. Now I’m happy, I’m really excited to announce that that match will happen right here on Rampage next week.” The mastermind Tully himself tells us that we are “going to see what it’s like to come up against the best in the business!” Gresham knows fans aren’t quite used to hearing his name on television, but we will all get used to it. We’re used to a couple of guys in particular, Claudio Castagnoli and Bryan Danielson, claiming they are the best technical wrestler, when we all know GRESHAM is the best?
Gresham is tired of being left out of important conversations! They know that HE is the best technical wrestler, and he has spent 17 YEARS chasing that dream. He has accomplished that by being THE ROH World Champion! And next week on Rampage, Gresham shows us all why. Will the Octopus deny Tully Blanchard Enterprises their shot at his title while also sending a message to the Swiss Cyborg and American Dragon?
Mark Henry talks to tonight’s main eventers!
The World’s Strongest Man starts with asking the Native Beast and The Problem why they brutally attacked Toni Storm last week. Why? Uh, great question. Let’s go to the weather map for answers. The “Toni Storm” is really just a high pressure system of hot air and BULL- Wait, hold on. It might be late but the kids are watching, so Nyla won’t go there. But Nyla will say that “Toni Storm is encroaching on my territory here in All Elite Wrestling.” Nyla is the #1 contender! All roads to the championships lead through HER! Last week, Storm had a problem in Shafir. And if Shafir is The Problem, then Nyla is a GADDAMN CATASTROPHE!
Storm tells Nyla that while Forbidden Door didn’t go as planned, that doesn’t mean her momentum stops here. Storm will finish Nyla and go back after Thunder Rosa, and she won’t stop until she becomes THE AEW Women’s World Champion. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Lightning From Down Under strike the Native Beast down? Or will this Vicious Vixen be the gatekeeper to the gold?
Toni Storm VS Nyla Rose w/ Marina Shafir!
The bell rings, the two tie up and fans fire up as they’re in a deadlock. Nyla knees and CLUBS Storm down, then pie faces her. Nyla runs but Storm avoids the punt to fire off forearms! Nyla throws body shots back but Storm hits her more and more! Storm runs, tilt-o-whirls, but Nyla blocks that to CLOBBER Storm! Marina likes what she sees while Nyla toys with Storm. Nyla kicks Storm around, sits her up and rains down fists. Nyla runs, but into a drop toehold! Storm runs to basement dropkick! Fans fire up, Storm runs corner to corner, and she uppercuts in the corner! Storm fires off stomps and forearms, then an uppercut!
Storm runs but Nyla CLOBBERS her again! Nyla snarls and she clamps onto Storm’s arm to twist the wrist and bend the elbow! Storm endures, fights up, but Nyla double wristlocks to then suplex! Nyla brings Storm up again, but Storm fires off forearms! Storm ROCKS Nyla, runs the ropes, but Nyla claims something is in her eye. The ref checks, and misses Marina holding the ropes open! Storm takes a tumble, and The Problem is definitely a problem at ringside! Marina BOOTS Storm back down, and fans boo while Rampage goes picture in picture.
The ref questions what happened but Marina plays dumb. Nyla goes out to stomp Storm, drag her up and whips her into steel steps! Nyla smirks and Shafir applauds while Nyla refreshes the count. Nyla hauls Storm up to scoop and SLAM Storm, then she gets back in the ring. The count climbs, Shafir mockingly coaches Storm up, but Nyla distracts the ref again so Marina can step on Storm! Marina gets away before Storm can kick her back. Nyla goes out to fetch Storm, and she brings Storm around to CLUB her against the post. Nyla winds up but Storm dodges and Nyla hits post herself! Then Storm shoves and POSTS Nyla!
Storm RAMS Nyla into barriers, then CLUBS her against the apron. Storm tries to get Nyla up and in but Nyla CLUBS Storm back. Nyla talks trash while standing on Storm’s hand! The ref counts, Nyla lets off and drags Storm up, only for Storm to RAM her into more barriers! Storm puts Nyla in the ring, but Nyla drops an elbow on Storm as she enters! Nyla whips Storm to ropes, fireman’s carries, but Storm fights free! Storm CLUBS away, but Nyla TACKLES Storm! Cover, TWO! Nyla clamps on a QUEEN ANGELITO STRETCH and bends Storm back! Storm endures, even as Nyla thrashes her around!
Storm refuses to give up, so Nyla fishhooks her face! The ref counts, Nyla shifts to make Storm smile. The ref reprimands again, Nyla lets off, and Storm fights with hammer fists. Nyla holds on, pulling harder on the chinlock. But Storm fights, crawls, reaches out, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Nyla lets off at 4 and Rampage returns to single picture. Fans fire up for Storm while Nyla runs in at the corner, for a SPLASH! Storm sits down, Nyla runs in again, but the CANNONBALL only gets buckles! Fans fire up and Storm runs in, HIP ATTACK! Shafir tries to save Nyla but Storm BOOTS her away! Nyla HOTSHOTS Storm!
Nyla runs side to side, but Storm dumps her out! Shafir helps Nyla up, but Storm is on the apron! FLYING DOUBLE DDT to the floor!! Fans fire up with Storm and she puts Nyla in the ring. Storm climbs up and Nyla rises, into the CROSSBODY! Cover, ONE!! Storm hurries to get Nyla up, reel her in, and use the corner. No tornado, though, and Nyla CLOBBERS Storm! Cover, TWO!! Nyla and Shafir grow frustrated, Nyla drags Storm up. Nyla reels Storm in, gets her up, but Storm pops out of the bomb to sunset flip! Nyla DROPS on the cover! TWO!! Storm survives and fans fire up again! Nyla ROCKS Storm but Storm fires back!
The forearms go back and forth, fans rally behind Storm, but Nyla kicks low. Nyla scoops but Storm slips out to shove her into the corner. Nyla grabs the buckles, Storm pulls her back, and a buckle pad goes flying! The ref hurries to fetch that, Nyla SUPERKICKS Storm down! Cover, TWO!! Storm is still in this and Nyla can’t believe it! Shafir is frustrated on Nyla’s behalf, and Nyla hangs Storm out to dry. Nyla goes to a corner, climbs up top, FLYING KNEE MISSES as Storm dodges! Nyla storms over but Storm HOTSHOTS her away! Storm gets in, waistlocks, and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO!!
Fans fire up while both women are down. Shafir is on the corner, Storm has Nyla, and Storm BOOTS Shafir as part of the TORNADO DDT! Storm hurries to get Nyla back up, SATELLITE DDT!! Cover, Storm wins!!
Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall
But Shafir gets in to sucker punch Storm! And SAYANAGI! And then some ground ‘n’ pound! But here comes THUNDER ROSA! The AEW Women’s World Champion blows past Shafir to SHOTGUN Nyla! Shafir returns but she gets an ENZIGURI! Thunder & Storm go after them and it’s a wild brawl! SHOTGUN for Shafir, and a LARIAT for Nyla! Fans are thunderous as La Mera Mera and her previous challenger stand tall! Storm shakes hands with the champ, will we see these two rumble again down the line? Or will they have to wash away those Vicious Vixens first?
A great Rampage, and I really like how the “Royal Rampage” works. NXT should’ve thought to do a match like that whenever they did WarGames. But I will say, I was really hoping they were going to give us Keith VS Swerve at the end of this. It’d be a great way to add to their story while also giving one of them a great match against Moxley. But Keith and Swerve are sticking together a little longer since they need to still settle things with Team Taz. And in the end, we did get a fresh match-up for Moxley in Brody King. That is happening already, and it’s going to be badass even without build, I can’t wait to see it.
Good segment from Hook. He is exactly how a strong silent type Face should be written in my opinion. Since he rarely talks, when Hook chooses to talk, it is more impactful. Also this could just be that they aren’t quite sure where to put Hook right now, but he just needs to start having longer, more competitive matches with some of the other established names. Maybe against Caster real quick before the Ass Boys come back around to fight The Acclaimed for their father’s love. Plus, imagine the rap Caster could come up with about Hook.
Good promo from Gresham, and one line from Tully, to set up the coming ROH on Rampage match. Gresham also calling out Bryan and Claudio is great, I think everyone would love to see that happen as part of Death Before Dishonor on July 23rd. One thing I do want to say, and it isn’t a knock on Gresham but more a choice of the companies, it feels like they downgraded the world title’s design. I know it’s based on the original design, but the design they had looked amazing. This legacy design looks too much like the ROH Tag Titles which FTR have. But again, not really anything that affects Gresham or his booking, it’s just something visual that I wish they didn’t do.
The Bucks VS Bishamon not being main event was a bit of a surprise, but then I realized they probably didn’t want any language barrier affecting the promo with Mark Henry. It was a great tag match, definitely worthy of the tag titles, but that is why Bucks win. I would think FTR makes it through DBD with the ROH tag titles, and then they and the Bucks can start towards All Out for FOUR TITLES AT ONCE for the most amazing tag match ever! And then we got a good promo segment with Nyla and Storm before a very good main event. Storm winning is great, they could easily give us Rosa VS Storm 2, and at the very least, we’re getting Rosa & Storm VS Nyla & Shafir to help build the next title story.
