BREAKING NEWS for Double or Nothing!

On Sunday, May 29th, as AEW goes to Las Vegas, it will be the Cowboy and the Best in the World going 1v1 for the AEW World Championship! Will Hangman Page be able to prove he is better than the Best in the World? Or will CM Punk have none of that #CowboyShit and take the title?

Speaking of, Punk has a mic and he goes to the ring! He gets a good look at the graphic and says he’ll try to keep this short so the action can keep going. How about what we just saw in Dax VS Cash? Fans cheer that one for sure, and he says he has never been in a locker room with more talent than here in AEW. It was seven or eight months ago, when he walked out through the curtain here for the first time in seven years, and he asked himself, “Can I still do this? And now I can probably stand here in front of my fans here in Philadelphia and says, HELL YEAH, I can still do this.” Fans cheer that, too!

Punk is a fan of Hangman. Fans like him are pretty big on Hangman, too. This isn’t to disparage anyone else Punk’s faced here in AEW, except maybe Eddie Kingston, but from Darby Allin to Dustin Rennels/Rhodes, everyone up until now has just been a warm-up. Punk is getting warm and he promises us one thing: that he can’t promise us a win. He will promise us he will always give 100% for the fans because with the fans, there is no CM Punk! Without the fans, Punk doesn’t come back after seven years. Without fans, he doesn’t make it to Double or Nothing.

Double or Nothing is in Las Vegas, Nevada, but Punk has never been a gambling man. But Hangman, Punk will always bet on himself. Win, lose or draw, Double or Nothing, Hangman will know he was in a FIGHT with CM Punk. And Punk will fight until the wheels fall off! The Best in the World throws down the mic after having thrown down the gauntlet, will Hangman be ready for #ClobberingTime in Vegas?

 

Scorpio Sky and Dan Lambert speak.

Lambert starts by saying, “Scorpio Sky does not find himself fighting for the TNT title on Dynamite by some fluke or accident. This is not a coincidence.” Scorpio says no it is not. It was not coincidence that he was one half of the inaugural AEW World Tag Team Champions. It was not coincidence that he went on to win the inaugural Face of the Revolution Ladder Match. It was not coincidence that he went on to have a 402 day unbeaten streak that led him to becoming TNT Champion. Only to be screwed out of it in his second defense. But Sammy, Scorpio isn’t here to complain, and he didn’t ask Frankie Kazarian to step aside if he intended on losing.

Scorpio gives Sammy Guevara credit where it’s due. Sammy’s given the fans some of the greatest moments they’ve ever seen. But this Philly crowd ain’t here for that. They’re here to see Scorpio beat some ass and take back what is rightfully his! “There can only be ONE Face of TNT, and you’re looking at it.” The lights go out with a snap of the fingers, but will it take everything Scorpio has in his body to get revenge on the Spanish God?

 

Six Man Tag: Blackpool Combat Club w/ William Regal VS The Factory w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The trio of Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley and Wheeler Yuta may only be 2-0, but it is a very strong 2-0 against some serious competition. Will it only get more serious as they take on QT Marshall, Aaron Solo & Nick Comoroto?

The trios don’t sort out, Moxley just goes after big Comoroto! Yuta is after Solo and Bryan is after QT, and the ref tries to restore order! Yuta throws Solo out, Bryan does the same to QT, and the bell rings to get this on record! Moxley BITES Comoroto’s forehead while QT is sent into steel steps. Moxley throws knees and KICKS on Comoroto while Bryan sends QT into railing, and while Yuta takes care of Solo. Moxley KICKS Comoroto around the ring, ROCKS him with a right, then runs, only to run into a shoulder! Comoroto drags Moxley up to wrench and tag Solo. Solo fires a forearm but Moxley DECKS him!

Moxley drags Solo up to X-PLEX! Moxley then puts Solo on ropes to give him crossface forearms! The ref counts, Moxley lets off and he brings Solo up to back suplex. Cover, ONE, but Moxley clamps onto Solo’s arm and chin. Tag to Yuta and fans fire up as the hometown hero kicks Solo. Yuta wrenches but Solo knees low. Solo wrenches, Yuta moves around, rolls and handsprings then arm-drags and dropkicks! Cover, ONE and he knees Yuta low. Tag to Comoroto but Yuta dropkicks him! Yuta headlocks, Comoroto powers out, dodges and back drops Yuta high and hard! Comoroto fires up while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Comoroto CLUBS Yuta with a crossface forearm, has Yuta in a corner, and he RAMS into Yuta with shoulder after shoulder. Comoroto bumps Yuta off buckles, tags QT, and they mug Yuta in the corner. QT brings Yuta out, but Yuta CHOPS him! QT kicks low, tags Solo and they mug Yuta. Solo snap suplexes then covers, ONE! Solo CLUBS Yuta with a forearm then facelocks to bring him back. Comoroto tags in, mugs Yuta, but Yuta CHOPS back! And CHOPS! Comoroto whips Yuta out of the ring! Comoroto goes out after Yuta, SMACKS him off apron and puts him in the ring. Comoroto then tags QT, and they mug Yuta.

QT scoops and SLAMS Yuta, then runs to drop a knee! Cover, TWO! QT clamps onto Yuta with a chinlock and grinds him down. Yuta endures, Philly rallies up, and Yuta fights to throw body shots. QT knees low, ROCKS Yuta with a haymaker, then tags Solo in. Solo drags Yuta up to back suplex. Cover, TWO! Solo clamps onto Yuta with a neck wrench, but Moxley gets in to kick Solo! Solo hits Moxley back! Dynamite returns to single picture as Solo brings Yuta up, but Yuta JAWBREAKERS free! QT tags in and he keeps Yuta from Bryan. QT whips Yuta to ropes, mocks Bryan’s “YES! YES! YES!” but he doesn’t see Yuta rewind!

Yuta gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX QT! Philly fires up and rallies as both men crawl! Hot tags to Solo and Bryan! The American Dragon rallies on Solo with EuroUppers, then CHOPS and KICKS in the corner! And CHOPS and KICKS and CHOPS and KICKS! Bryan KICKS away on Solo as fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan whips corner to corner, Solo reverses but Bryan goes up and over then runs to dodge Solo and DIVE onto QT and Comoroto! Solo runs in but Bryan DECKS him! Bryan climbs up and missile dropkicks Solo down! Bryan kips up and fans are fired up again! Bryan sees Solo sit up, and he gives him more KICKS!

Solo sits up into KICK after KICK, but ducks the buzzsaw to roll Bryan up! TWO, into the omoplata and LeBelle Lock! But QT breaks it! Moxley gets in, HALF ‘N’ HALF for QT! QT flounders, Moxley and Bryan coordinate to run corner to corner! Bryan dropkicks Solo while Moxley clotheslines QT! Then they trade, dropkick for QT and clothesline for Solo! And back the other way! Moxley clotheslines himself and QT out of the ring while Bryan hoists Solo up top! Bryan climbs, but Solo shoves him down! Solo adjusts, leaps, but Bryan dropkicks him outta the sky! Fans fire up as Bryan crawls for the BCC corner, hot tags to Yuta and Comoroto!

The Decoder fires off on the Freak Beast, but Comoroto knees low. Comoroto TOSSES Yuta across the ring! Comoroto stalks Yuta to a corner, and TOSSES him back the other way! Comoroto roars but fans boo. Comoroto hauls Yuta up to scoop him, and then OKLAHOMA- NO! Yuta turns the slam into a GUILLOTINE! Comoroto endures, stays on his feet, and powers up to swing Yuta around, but Yuta turns that into a SLEEPER HOLD! Yuta has body scissors, too! Comoroto endures, fights, but Yuta throws elbows into Comoroto’s head! Yuta brings Comoroto down, but Solo and QT rush in! Only for Bryan and Moxley to intercept!

QT and Solo each get a REAR NAKED CHOKE from Bryan and Moxley!! Solo then turns Comoroto for the Seatbelt Cradle, BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

A perfect 3-0 for this dangerous trio, and Philly cheers their hometown hero! Will the BCC soon take over AEW from top to bottom?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Toni Storm.

Tony Schiavone again interviews these three Owen Hart Women’s Tournament entrants, and he thanks them for again agreeing to no physicality. Britt says that’s right, NO physicality. Toni doesn’t have to worry about them getting her. But that means no just leaving, either. They just wanna talk. Toni says that’s fine, too. She won’t go anywhere. Obviously Britt has her little friend in Hayter. And as she said before, she’ll see Hayter in the first round. But Britt, you should say hello to Toni’s friend, another woman who qualified for this tournament. It’s Ruby Soho!

Ruby says there’s a pattern here with Britt’s group. Any time someone new shows up, Britt and Hayter throw their proverbial… weight around, and maybe it’s because Britt is insecure after losing her title. But there’s always something Britt has to say. The late, great Owen Hart once said, “Enough is enough, and it’s time for a change.” And Ruby can’t think of a better change than to just drop Britt and Hayter right here, right now. Hayter dares Ruby to do it. But no, no physicality, and there’s stuff to do. Britt and Hayter are gonna visit Ruby’s home sweet home, aka catering. Ruby points out the hypocrisy in them leaving when they told Toni not to leave.

The Doctor and her assistant may have backed down from a fight tonight, but will they both end up bounced from the tournament at the hands of Soho and Storm?

 

Backstage interview with Jurassic Express and Christian Cage.

A tough week for Jungle Boy in losing that Owen Hart tournament qualifier. And though he doesn’t want to sound like a sore loser, last week really stung for him because he knows he could’ve won, but didn’t finish Kyle O’Reilly when he had the chance. Captain Charisma says Jack doesn’t sound like a sore loser, he just sounds like a loser. But he isn’t a loser, he has that AEW World Tag Team Championship title and should have it on his shoulder where it belongs. That was a teachable moment last week, Jurassic Express are still champions and they can right a wrong. Christian issues a challenge to any of the top five tag teams in AEW right now!

But before he even finishes saying that, Ricky Starks & Will Hobbs walk in. Hello, how are you? Team Taz is the NUMBER THREE team, so hello, Christian and hello, Smooth Brain-asaurus and Punkass Boy! This is what they’re issuing: anytime, any place, from Dynamite to Rampage to AEW’s YouTube, Jurassic Express VS Starks & Hobbs. Please, he implores them, “Let’s do it, boys.” Team Taz heads of and Luchasaurus roars. Is that challenge as good as accepted?

 

Wardlow VS Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake Roberts!

The Pinnacle has been yanking the “War Pig” around while running away, but he hasn’t stopped chasing after them. The Murderhawk Monster is the newest mercenary MJF is paying to pulverize the big bad piggy, but has he only set Archer up for a Powerbomb Symphony? Or will Archer conduct an overture of #EverybodyDies?

And of course, MJF has to make his presence known. He has the music cut, because he and Shawn Spears are back up in the VIP section with popcorn and bubbly. “Spears, really quick, buddy. I’m seeing a lot of women here in this audience. Hey, do you know what women in Philadelphia use as birth control?” “No, what, Max?” “Their personalities.” The Pinnacle laughs it up but fans boo. They wanna boo MJF, huh? Well they’ll get even more upset when MJF’s boy, Archer, DECIMATES “War Pig!” Archer will silence each and every fan here! And speaking of silence, the man coming out to no music once again, and the fans better keep their mouths shut!

As per the restrictions put on Wardlow last week, he is cuffed while being escorted out by security guards. Fans do their best to sing Wardlow’s song from memory, and the cuffs are removed. Jake the Snake is talking trash, but then Archer CANNONBALLS onto Wardlow and the guards! The ref reprimands, Archer tells him to shut up, and then he throw Wardlow into the ring. Archer gets in, the bell rings, and Wardlow dodges to RANA Archer?! Wardlow can do a huricanrana?! Wardlow fires off on Archer, whips him corner to corner, but Archer reverses and redirects Wardlow. Wardlow goes up and over and even rolls!

Wardlow comes back to RAM into Archer! Wardlow EuroUppers, RAMS, and repeats! The ref counts, Wardlow hauls Archer up onto his shoulders! Fans fire up, Wardlow SLAMS Archer down! Fans want it to begin and Wardlow reels Archer in. But Archer slips out and choke grips! Wardlow fights it off! Only for Archer to make it an IRON CLAW instead! Wardlow clubs that away, dodges again, DOUBLE LARIATS take them both down! Spears shouts things while MJF is upset. A standing count starts, both men get up at 5 of 10. Wardlow and Archer trade big shots, and Archer only fires up.

Wardlow fires another shot but Archer hits him back. The fans rally as the shots keep flying, and Wardlow gets the edge! Wardlow RAMS Archer back into a corner, then goes corner to corner. Wardlow blocks a boot but Archer ROCKS him with a forearm! Archer knuckle locks, CLUBS away on Wardlow’s back, then he goes up the corner. Archer goes Old School, and MOONSAULTS! Fans fire up and MJF is finally happy here. Archer has Wardlow in a choke grip, for a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Wardlow survives and Archer is upset, but Archer just drags Wardlow back up.

Archer brings Wardlow to a corner, hoists him up top, inverted crucifix lift and BLACKOUT BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?! And into a ghost pin! TWO!!! Archer CLUBS away on Wardlow in frustration! Archer puts Wardlow back up top and he wants it again! Inverted crucifix, but Wardlow CLUBS back. Archer ROCKS Wardlow, climbs up after Wardlow, but Wardlow fights back again. Archer CLUBS Wardlow but Wardlow HEADBUTTS! And HEADBUTTS, and HEADBUTTS again and again! Archer falls, Wardlow adjusts, SWANTON BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! MJF is stressing out but Wardlow fires up as he brings down the straps!

Wardlow gets Archer up and in, POWERBOMB! But the Symphony is only beginning! MJF is furious and Wardlow gets Archer back up! POWERBOMB! Wardlow conducts the carnage and he gets Archer up again. POWERBOMB THE THIRD!! And then right into POWERBOMB THE FOURTH!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Fans sing for “WARD~LOW!” as he finishes off another monster! Wardlow is cuffed and escorted away, but will MJF have no choice but face the man he’s holding down?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!

Chris Jericho leads Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matt Menard and Angelo Parker out, a table already waiting in the ring. This is to be a sit-down negotiation between the JAS and the trio of Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz with absolutely zero physicality, with threat of fines and suspensions coming down from Tony Khan himself. Fans sing Judas and Parker has them stop. “The world’s greatest promotor, Tony Khan, gave this time to the Jericho Appreciation Society because he knows, just like each and every one of you, sports entertainers are best for business.” Fans boo because they don’t agree.

Parker says in order to have their little sit-down, they had to promise Khan and the “AEW Galaxy” there would be NO physicality. It has been agreed upon by the JAS, and it has been agreed upon by “those rats,” Santana, Ortiz & Kingston. Now get them out here! The Mad King makes his entrance with Proud ‘n’ Powerful and they go right to the ring. They toss their chairs aside, Garcia dares someone to throw hands but Ever-Rise and the rest want this to stay peaceful. Jericho gets the mic and tells fans to shut up with the “Eddie! Eddie!” chants. That only makes them chant it more.

Jericho wants everyone to keep this in mind. The Earth is 4.5 BILLION years old, and we’re all lucky to be living in the Chris Jericho Era. And yet Kingston and his crew deprived the people of Pittsburgh from seeing Chris Jericho last week when the JAS was kicked out of the arena for Rampage! They’re the ones people pay to see! People pay to see the JAS! Fans boo because no, they don’t. Jericho says that he is asking- NO! Demanding! Jericho demands an apology for himself. NOW! Apologize to the JAS! Ortiz says “Christopher” wants an apology from them? Where are their manners? In fact, Ortiz can do them one better, just hold on.

Ortiz checks his pockets. He swears he has it on him. Ortiz brings out a MIDDLE FINGER! In fact, doesn’t Santana have something for the JAS? Yes, he does. Hold on, hold on. It’s a MIDDLE FINGER! Santana says Jericho’s problem is that he turned his back on the two dudes that know him best, that were with him in the beginning, in the trenches. Garcia speaks up to say these guys think they’re so tough. They’re throwing out middle fingers and threats, and then Kingston’s manicured eyebrows. Menard shouts about Kingston’s eyebrows, and Kingston plays like he’s styling them. Garcia says the threats don’t mean a thing, cuz it’s not like they can hit the JAS!

Garcia says no one can hit them right now. Then he gets right up in Santana’s face and eggs him on. Menard leans in, and Jericho even tries the step. Menard starts shouting, “What’re you gonna do!?” Kingston says enough already. Just stop and back up. Kingston hates this this crap. He hates the chairs, he’s not a fan of The Sopranos, he doesn’t care for this table or this “sports entertainment” crap! Jericho, Kingston told you that they’re gonna get got regardless, so just stop with the crap and fight him! It doesn’t matter that this is 5v3, Kingston just wants to fight! Kingston and Jericho stare down and Philly fires up!

Jericho smirks and says, “Here’s the problem, Kingston. It is 5 on 3, and you stupid sons o’ bitches aren’t smart enough to realize it. So we’re gonna take you out one by one by one. The JAS is putting a hit on all your asses!” Kingston wants to respond but he tells Garcia and the others to shut up, he swears on his mother. Kingston asks Jericho if he even knows what “a hit” means. Does he? Look Kingston in the eyes. Kingston says that “a hit” in his world means to end it. Kingston won’t let Jericho look away, either. Jericho will listen to him now. Jericho needs a mic, huh?

Parker gets him one, and Jericho asks what Kingston’s gonna do? Hit him here and then get fired so that he’s out of another company? NO company wants Kingston, AEW is his last chance, so he needs to stand there, shut up and do what he’s told! Kingston laughs, Jericho takes a seat. Kingston says he won’t hit Jericho. Just look him in the eyes. Kingston can smell the fear coming off Jericho. When Jericho says “hit” in Kingston’s world, be prepared to put someone in the ground! And guess what? They’ve done it before, they’ll do it to Jericho! Is Jericho ready to do the same thing? NOPE.

Jericho is leaning so far back in his seat, eyes open with fear. Will the Mad King crush The Influencer once and for all?

 

Sammy Guevara speaks.

“Scorpio Sky, tonight I get to kick your ass for a third time, in my match, the ladder match. Congratulations, kid, you’ve been the most uninteresting guy on the AEW roster since you got here. Tag Team Champion? Don’t remember. TNT Champion? Already forgotten about it. Honestly, I don’t know what’s brighter: this beautiful woman, the TNT title, or our future.” Sammy and Tay kiss for luck, but will luck run out in tonight’s main event?

 

Philly Street Fight: Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb!

This started seven MONTHS ago, when the Full Metal Warrior got her 50th AEW win off the Professor of Pro-Wrestling. The grudge ran deep right then and there, and after going 2-2, this could very well be the finale of their feud! Will Shida strike down Serena and have a clean slate going into the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament? Or will the Wolf of Wrestling leave Shida with a mark she’ll never forget?

The moment Shida hits the ring, she’s swinging that kendo stick at Deeb! Deeb dodges, the bell rings, and Deeb kicks low. Deeb EuroUppers over and over then whips, but Shida reverses to follow and LARIAT! Then some ground ‘n’ pound! Philly fire sup but Deeb turns it around to fire off her own fists! Shida kicks from below, the two separate, and Shida is in a corner. Deeb runs in but into a BOOT! Shida hops up, leaps and missile dropkicks Deeb outta the ring! Shida hurries to follow her out there, and she gets a chair! Shida sets it up like she usually does, runs, but Deeb gets in the ring. Shida pursues, but then Deeb goes to the apron.

Shida gets Deeb’s hair and she bumps her off buckles again and again! Shida climbs up to then drag Deeb onto the top rope! Shida CLUBS her over and over on the buckle, and fans fire up as she goes corner to corner. TOP SHELF KNEE! Deeb flops down to the floor, and Shida goes to the apron. Shida fires up and so do the fans, and she leaps, into the CHAIR! Deeb used the chair against Shida and that bad leg! Deeb puts Shida in, gets that chair again, and sets it up in the center. Deeb rings Shida over, reels her in and has the bad leg, FULL METAL SHINBREAKER! Even fans wince as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Deeb folds up the chair and holds it up high. Fans rally while Deeb puts the chair down and she stalks Shida. Shida hits back with shots from below, but Deeb brings her up to kick low! Deeb kicks away again and again, then hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Deeb is frustrated but she drags Shida by the bad leg to drop an elbow on it! And then she drags Shida around for more elbows to the knee! Deeb grinds forearms into the knee but Shida clubs Deeb on the back. Deeb pulls on a toehold and Shida endures, so Deeb turns to GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Shida clutches her knee, Deeb scowls and looms over her.

Deeb stalks Shida to ropes, stomps her, then kicks the bad leg. Deeb steps through to tie up the legs, ROPE ASSISTED INDIAN DEATHLOCK! Shida can only endure with no ropebreaks or disqualifications, but she grabs Deeb by the hair and throws haymakers over and over! Deeb just puts more pressure on the hold! Shida pries at the hold, clutches the rope, but Deeb drags herself up to join Shida on the apron. Shida CLUBS at Deeb’s leg but Deeb stomps her! The deathlock is undone but Deeb spins Shida around. Deeb has the legs, but Shida BOOTS her into railing! Shida drags herself up, only for Deeb to CHOP BLOCK the leg!

Deeb slips the bad leg in between apron and skirt, and she hammers away on the knee! Then Deeb brings out another chair, to SMACK the leg against apron!! Deeb gets back in and takes a seat, and she relaxes while Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans boo but Deeb just grins as she soaks up the heat. Shida crawls back towards center, but Deeb looms over her. Deeb brings Shida up, has the leg again, but Shida turns lift into a sunset flip! And then Shida rolls back to RAM Deeb into the chair! Deeb writhes and flounders out of the ring while fans fire up! Deeb goes under the ring, and she brings out a Ziploc baggy?

Shida hurries over, Deeb uses POWDER on Shida! Fans boo but Deeb grabs a kendo stick to SMACK Shida with it! And again! And again! And again! Deeb throws the stick away, then drags Shida up by her hair to reel her in. Deeb tucks the arms, but Shida fights the driver to back drop Deeb away! Shida blindly paws around, and she finds the kendo stick! She takes blind swings, the ref has to move out of the way, but Shida SMACKS Deeb outta the ring! Shida finds her way out, gets a water bottle from staff, and she washes out the powder. Shida can see again, and she locks onto Deeb at the ramp. Shida leaps off steps to missile dropkick!

Shida gets Deeb back in, gets her kendo stick, and she SMACKS Deeb again! And again! And again! And again! Fans fire up with Shida, but they also want tables. Shida stops Deeb from getting a chair, and gives her KNEE after KNEE after KNEE! Shida takes aim, but Katana Knee hits chair! Deeb gets Shida with that again, and then she wraps the chair around the bad knee! Deeb hurries to a corner and climbs up while fans boo. But Shida gets the chair off her leg, and gets up to SMACK Deeb with it! Shida climbs up to join Deeb, brings Deeb up and SUPER FALCON ARROWS!! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up and Shida is furious as Deeb survives!

Shida drags Deeb back up but Deeb is dead weight. Shida leaves her behind to get a kendo stick. Fans chant “HOLY SHIDA!” and Shida SMACKS Deeb down! Then she CHOKES Deeb with the kendo stick! Deeb scrambles, pushes off ropes, rolls Shida up, TWO! SMACK again! Shida gets a chair, and sets her kendo stick on it. She brings Deeb around, Canadian rack, but Deeb rakes eyes! Deeb brings Shida in, tucks the arms, FULL METAL DEEBTOX!! Cover, TWO!?!? Shida survives and no one can believe it! Deeb is furious, but she hooks the arm and turns Shida over! Shida scrambles around and gets the ropes, but that won’t stop this!

Deeb drags Shida away from ropes, to SMASH the knee on the chair! And she does it again and again and again!! Deeb gets the legs in a TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!! Deeb sits deep and Shida taps! Deeb wins!

Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission

The Wolf of Wrestling may not be in the Owen Hart tournament, but she solidifies her spot as #1 contender! And Thunder Rosa was watching this match, too. Will La Mera Mera go Double or Nothing with her old NWA rival?

 

Backstage interview with MJF and Shawn Spears.

Lexi Nair says they seem shockingly calm after witnessing Wardlow defeat Archer. Well, Lindsey, that’s because MJF has a plan. It’s Lexi. Oh, right, sorry! GET OUT OF HIS FRAME! Spears takes the mic and then hands MJF his phone. The reason MJF is so calm is because he has a damn good back-up. He calls someone, and has a quick question for this guy. How’d he feel about making six figures in one match? The answer is yes. So Wardlow is going to be facing a man who is smarter than him, stronger than him, and taller than him. And you can’t. Teach. That. Does that mean MJF just called in the realest mercenary yet?

 

The lights go out in the arena!

The House of Black is meant to appear, but when the lights come up, FUEGO DEL SOL is down on the ramp! Malakai Black walks out and kneels by him. “I told you we’d extend the challenge.” Brody King and Buddy Matthews sit Fuego up, and Malakai grabs at Fuego’s mask! They’re gonna demask Fuego!? But then Alex Abrahantes calls to the House of Black from the ring! “Don’t you know it’s sacrilegious to remove a mask from a luchador? We told you that if you continue to mess with Fuego, you’re going to get burnt.” The House of Black throws Fuego aside and they storm down the ramp!

Alex says for men that love deception as much as the House does, Alex can’t figure out how they haven’t figured out why Alex even dresses like this. It’s because they’ve been waiting for the right moment to blindside the House back. The music plays for Penta Oscuro, and he walks out onto the stage! Then, here comes PAC! The Bastard is back, too, but then so does Alex?! Alex is dressed in his signature yin-yang pants and jacket, and says, “House of Black, I guess we all now know why you like to hide in the shadows. Because clearly, you aren’t very bright.” If Alex is on the stage, then who is in the cloak? It’s REY FENIX!!

Fans are fired up as Fenix has the shovel! The House turns around to see what’s going on! And they narrowly avoid the shovel swing! Buddy tries to take the shovel from Fenix, but Fenix waistlocks. Buddy throws elbows and throws Fenix down, but the brawl is going on outside the ring, too! Pac digs Malakai into railing while Penta is after Brody. Buddy turns around and Fenix kips right up to SUPERKICK him! Fenix then runs in to jump SOBAT in the corner! Buddy flounders and fans fire up as Fenix goes right up to DIVING DOUBLE STOMP! Buddy bails out to regroup with the House, and Death Triangle reunites in the ring! “CERO! MIEDO!”

Pac gets moving, all three members build speed, and they TRIPLE TOPE onto the House of Black! Fans fire up as Death Triangle stands tall! Will they finally burn down the House now that they’re at 100%?

 

AEW announces another Owen Hart Men’s Tournament qualifier.

It will be this Friday on Rampage, Swerve Strickland takes on Darby Allin! Tony Schiavone interviews both men backstage, these two have been friends a long time but only one can move on. Swerve says “friend” is a little strong here. They’re more like rivals who beat the hell out of each other. And Darby’s all grown up. Swerve is so proud of him. But Swerve is gonna turn Rampage into whose house? Swerve’s House. Darby says Swerve can’t just keep coming into companies claiming its his house. Hate to break it to you, but AEW is Darby’s House. He’s been here since day one, and on Friday Night Rampage, Darby shows everyone why this tournament is Darby’s, too.

 

10 Man Tag: The Undisputed Elite VS Dante Martin, The Varsity Blonds, Lee Johnson & Brock Anderson w/ Arn Anderson!

An open challenge was issued last week, and was also answered last week! In the wake of the Owen Hart tournament qualifiers and the news of AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door, Adam Cole and friends want to prove who is in charge around here! Will he, reDRagon and the Young Bucks be standing on top again? Or will Angel Dorado, Griff Garrison, Brian Pillman Jr., Big Shotty and the Son of the Enforcer prove this is NOT their era?

The teams sort out and Dante starts for his side, only for everyone but Cole to attack! The Bucks and Fish knock the Blonds and #BrockLee off the apron while Kyle stomps Dante. The ref reprimands and the Undisputed Elite backs off for Matt to start with Dante. Matt throws hands, then tags Kyle. They double whip but Dante ducks the double clotheslines to then shove Matt at Kyle. They stop themselves, Matt dodges Dante but Kyle takes the clothesline! Matt rushes Dante but Dante hurdles over, and then dropkicks Matt, with Kyle accidentally table-topping him! Dante then wrenches Kyle and tags in BPJ!

The young’uns mug Kyle, BPJ clinches and CHOPS, then tag to Griff. The Blonds double whip, then Griff picks Kyle up, DROPKICK SPINEBUSTER COMBO! The Bucks get in and go after the Bucks. Matt gives Nick the boost to dropkick them both! Griff tags Lee, he goes up and DOUBLE CROSSBODIES! Direct hit, and Lee gets up to dodge double clotheslines. Brock gets in and DOUBLE LARIATS the Bucks! Fish gets in to EXPLODER Brock! Dante springboard missile dropkicks Fish! Fans fire up and Dante coordinates with Lee. They both build speed, Lee FLIES onto the Bucks while Dante jumps and SPRINGBOARDS onto reDRagon!

Philly fires up as Cole is the only one standing for the Undisputed Elite, Dante and his team regroup to stand tall in the ring! Fans fire up and the Undisputed Elite is arguing while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cole works to settle things down, Cutler literally tries to cool them all off with his spray cans, and the arguing stops. There’s even some breathing exercises at work here as Brock waits on someone. Kyle gets in and he circles with him, only to tag Fish in. They circle, Cole sips in but just to distract. Fish gets Brock for a SPINEBUSTER! A spinebuster on an Anderson?! Blasphemy! But Fish brings Brock up to throw knees, then snapmare Brock down. Fish goes up and out to slingshot senton! Cover, TWO! Fish brings Brock up as Arn coaches his son. Fish throws knees, tags Kyle in, and reDRagon mugs Brock against ropes. The ref counts, reDRagon double suplex!

Kyle has a cover, TWO, so he rains down forearms on Brock! Kyle then shifts around, throws knee after knee and elbow after elbow. Kyle KICKS Brock, clamps onto his arm and wrenches, then double wristlocks to bring him back. Fish tags back in, reDRagon mugs Brock more. Fish brings Brock around to ROCK him and DECK him, then bring him up for KICKS! Brock reaches out but Fish keeps him form his corner. Fish throws more knees, then more KICKS!  But Brock ducks, fakes a haymaker and hits a DDT! Both men are down and everyone fires up! Brock and Fish crawl, hot tags to Lee and Kyle!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Big Shotty starts to rally! Lee whips, the Bucks get in to help Kyle, and the Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK Lee down! Kyle thanks them for that, but here comes BPJ! The Bucks dodge him, Fish kicks BPJ low, then Kyle reels BPJ in, TOTAL ANNIHILATION! The Bucks CLOBBER Griff, then BOOT Dante! Cole is all fired up for his guys, and they quickly coordinate. Nick goes out to the apron to PENALTY KICK Griff! Nick shoulders into Lee and slingshots, “SUCK IT!” FACEBUSTER! Then handspring MOONSAULT onto the Blonds! Fans fire up as Nick finishes wrecking everyone!

Matt tags in and he WRECKS Brock and Dante with a dropkick! He then holds the ropes down so Nick can FLY out onto the rest! Nick takes a victory lap, then Nick tags back in. Nick then tags Kyle and Kyle tags Fish. The ref counts, Fish tags Cole, and everyone surrounds Lee. UNDISPUTED ELITE TRIGGER!! And then THE BOOM!! Cover, The Undisputed Elite wins!

Winners: The Undisputed Elite, by pinfall

Cole puts the finishing touches on this, then he hands the Bucks their Undisputed Elite shirts. Everyone wears the merchandise, will they completely dominate AEW from here on out?

 

Something’s going down backstage!

Matt Menard says he has a scoop! Look what happened! Santana, Ortiz and Kingston have been attacked by the JAS! And then Jericho uses a FIREBALL on Kingston’s face!! Did they just complete the hit Kingston dared them to pull?!

 

BREAKING for Rampage!

First, it will be the trios debut of Jade Cargill, Red Velvet and Kiera Hogan against Skye Blue, Willow Nightingale and Trish Adora! Will the baddies look real good as a unit? Then, Keith Lee takes on Colten Gunn 1v1, and we have a face-to-face confrontation of Hook and Danhausen! But biggest of all, Samoa Joe defends his ROH World Television Championship against Trent Beretta!

AEW takes a closer look at Joe VS Trent!

Trent spent years in ROH, but won no titles, nothing to show for his time there. But now, this Friday on Rampage, he’ll change that. Samoa Joe says a man’s riches can be measured in his friends. Trent is pretty rich in friendship. Trent says Joe hits hard, but Trent is the guy who gets hit hard. Joe says Trent has to come to the stark realization that Joe did not come here to break Trent. He just wants Trent to realize that he is facing Joe, the ROH World TV Champion. Will Trent have no choice but to accept that his title-less streak continues?

And furthermore…

There will finally be an UNDISPUTED ROH Women’s World Champion as Deonna Purrazzo and Mercedes Martinez battle it out on next week’s Dynamite! Will the Virtuoso or the OG Badass be the one standing alone at the top of the mountain? Plus, one more Owen Hart Men’s Qualifier: Jeff Hardy VS Bobby Fish! Will the Charismatic Enigma represent the Hardys in honoring Hart? Or will the Undisputed Elite have even better odds of taking the whole thing?

 

AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match: Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Conti VS Scorpio Sky w/ Dan Lambert!

The Spanish God may have cheated the Closer, but only because he felt the Closer was gonna cheat him first. But that just means they’re 1-1 and this is the tiebreaker! Who rises above the other to once and for all stand tall as THE Face of TNT?

The introductions are made, the belt is already high overhead, and these two brawl at the ramp!

The bell rings to put this on record, fans fire up for the scrap, and Scorpio whips Sammy into railing! And then into more railing! Scorpio drags Sammy up to throw knees against railing, then body shots! Sammy can only guard as he falls to the floor! Scorpio flexes, drags Sammy up and gives him SNAKE EYES on the railing! Sammy flounders and sputters but Scorpio brings him up to whip hard into more railing! Sammy writhes and Scorpio says, “I told you I’d beat his ass.” Scorpio hurries to get the ladder from the stage and bring it down the ramp. Scorpio gets to ringside, Sammy builds speed, but Scorpio avoids the baseball slide!

Sammy staggers to the ramp, Scorpio backs up to RAM Sammy with the ladder! Fans rally and Scorpio brings the ladder around. Scorpio gets the ladder in the ring, Lambert and the fans rally behind him, and Scorpio mocks Sammy saying he’s crazy. Scorpio brings Sammy up but Sammy blocks the suplex. Scorpio still gets Sammy up but Sammy slips out to waistlock, and GERMAN SUPLEX to the ramp! Scorpio writhes and Tay cheers Sammy, but she’s the only one. Sammy does “snow angels” on the floor and then he gets up. Sammy RAMS Scorpio into railing! Sammy goes into the ring and he picks the ladder up.

Sammy stands the ladder up, positions it under the title, and he climbs. Sammy touches the belt but Scorpio drags him back down! They brawl, Sammy trips Scorpio and CATAPULTS him! But Scorpio uses that to get up! Sammy hurries and CLUBS Scorpio down. Sammy SLAMS Scorpio to the mat, then brings him up to RAM him into the rungs! Sammy positions the ladder again, but Scorpio hurries to grab a foot. Sammy scuffs Scorpio, reaches out, but the title is too far. So Sammy says he’ll do something crazy, and does a 630 SENTON to Scorpio!! Both men crash down hard and Philly is stunned as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Both men are down, Tay is worried for Sammy and Lambert coaches Scorpio. Scorpio stirs, as does Sammy. The refs check on both guys, Scorpio drags himself up the ropes, but Sammy might be another story. He almost didn’t hit Scorpio, and mostly hit mat. Scorpio looms over him and mocks him for being crazy. Scorpio then says, “Up yours,” before he repositions the ladder. Scorpio climbs but Sammy manages to sit up. Sammy tips the ladder and Scorpio hotshots off ropes! Sammy is still down, but now Scorpio has to start over. Tay is still worried for Sammy as he and Scorpio slowly rise.

Scorpio uses ropes again, but Tay CLAWS him on the back! Scorpio writhes and refs can only reprimand Tay for what she did. Tay doesn’t care, she shouts at the fans and Lambert. Scorpio gets back up, Sammy is outside the ring. Scorpio stands the one ladder up but Sammy brings in another! Sammy CLUBS Scorpio, Scorpio knees Sammy low. Scorpio gets the second ladder and puts it in a corner. Scorpio then hauls Sammy up to stick him inside the ladder, and have him drape off the hinges. Scorpio KICKS Sammy in the gut! Sammy flops out of the ring and Lambert applauds Scorpio for the creativity.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Scorpio goes back to the taller ladder. Scorpio drags himself up the rungs but Sammy manages to stand. Sammy climbs up the corner, then up the second ladder. Sammy makes sure it’s stable, and he LEAP FROGS but into Scorpio’s CUTTER!! Fans are thunderous and losing their minds over that one! Scorpio goes back out and starts looking under the ring. Scorpio brings out a ladder with barbed wire in it!! Just when you think you’ve seen it all! Fans chant for “E C DUB! E C DUB!” as that extreme spirit is brought to AEW! Scorpio gets his barbed wire ladder in the ring, then brings Sammy up.

Scorpio whips, fireman’s carries, but Sammy fights off and shoves! SPANISH FLY onto the barbed wire ladder!! Both men writhe while fans lose their minds again! Lambert gets the barbed wire ladder out, then he checks on Scorpio. Sammy grabs Lambert! Lambert says this isn’t about him but about the title hanging overhead! Sammy says that’s true, and he won’t hurt Lambert. Tay gets in, and she LOW BLOWS Lambert with one swift kick! But wait! Here comes PAIGE VANZANT! She and Tay brawl! Sammy hurries to brawl with Scorpio! Fans are loving this as Scorpio and VanZant have the advantage!

Scorpio and VanZant high-five, but then Sammy and Tay BOOT them both down! Sammy and Tay kiss, and then they hurry to get that barbed wire ladder again. They put it back in the ring, careful to watch their fingers. Sammy brings the barbed ladder and props it against ropes. But Scorpio gets him for a COMPLETE SHOT! Scorpio looks up at the prize, and he hurries to reposition the main ladder. Scorpio climbs, but Tay gets in again! She jumps on Scorpio for a SLEEPER! But VanZant does the same to Sammy! Both men climb while the ladies hang on! They all reach the top, and the ladies start throwing hands again!

Sammy and Scorpio fade with those sleepers still on tight, and Tay falls off Scorpio! VanZant goes after Tay, they brawl on the side while Scorpio and Sammy hang on to rungs. DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES take both women down! Sammy and Scorpio reach the top again, and while Scorpio reaches for the belt, Sammy throws haymakers! Scorpio starts to drop, and Sammy flips him off. So Scorpio BITES that finger! Fans fire up, Scorpio shoves Sammy down! Sammy hurries back up, throws more haymakers, then knocks Scorpio right off! Sammy gloats while reaching out, but then Scorpio tips the ladder! Sammy falls onto the barbed wire!!

Sammy scrapes off the wires and falls to the mat! Scorpio hurries to get back up the ladder, and he reaches the top! Philly is thunderous as Scorpio grabs the belt! Sammy springboards up after him!? They brawl, haymaker for haymaker, and Sammy falls again! Scorpio finally gets both hands on the belt, and brings it down to win!!

Winner: Scorpio Sky (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Ethan Page appears, he celebrates with his tag team partner as Scorpio is now a TWO-TIME TNT Champion! Frankie Kazarian appears, because just as promised, the former tag team champions will face off for the title! They shake hands and the celebration truly begins! Will Scorpio look to rebuild his streak with this title as its foundation?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode of Dynamite for AEW, but I’ll point out the one low point first. Did we really need Schiavone talking with Britt, Hayter and Storm again? We just saw this on Rampage, didn’t we? Yes, they added Soho here this time, but they could’ve given us a different scenario for this. We could’ve gotten a vignette that hypes up all the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament participants, where Soho and Britt say the same things about each other here through that. That said, I think they’re just hinted at a semifinal match with Soho VS Britt, and that will be a very good match.

Keeping with the AEW Women’s Division, I like that we’re going to see Jade and her new friends, Velvet and Kiera, be a trio. We’ll get to see more out of Heel Kiera and Heel Velvet, and maybe we’ll see a new challenger for Jade’s TBS Championship to step up after the Six Woman Tag match is said and done. The ROH Women’s World Championship story being settled on Dynamite is also great stuff, as we’re still waiting on an ROH TV deal. Same goes for the ROH World TV title for Rampage, good hype vignette there. Shida VS Deeb was a great Street Fight, and quite the surprise that Deeb wins. At the same time, Deeb VS Rosa for the title is going to be awesome, good move keeping Deeb strong to head for Double or Nothing in a month.

Awesome opener from Cash VS Dax. I called it in Dax moving on, but don’t think this breaks FTR up in the slightest. Cash will cheer Dax on, Dax will probably be out in the second round, and then FTR moves on to defend their multiple tag titles. Speaking of, Team Taz challenging for the AEW tag titles is an interesting move, but maybe Team Taz VS Keith & Swerve is on pause for right now. Jurassic Express will get going again after winning here, and then maybe we get Jurassic Express VS FTR for ALL the belts at Double or Nothing. And Swerve VS Darby is going to be a great match on Rampage. I think Darby advances, so Swerve and Keith can circle back to Team Taz.

CM Punk had a great promo to respond to the official announcement, Punk VS Page is going to be awesome for Double or Nothing. Great Six Man Tag outta BCC and Factory, and there was no question BCC was winning. Maybe they’ll be in the running for an AEW Trios Championship thing, but I would like to think these trio wins are helping Moxley and Bryan move up in the Tag Division, and Yuta can find a challenger for his ROH Pure Championship. Great stuff out of Death Triangle finally being whole again. I thought that was going to be Penta in the robe but Fenix being in it was awesome, and now we can finally have House of Black VS Death Triangle 3v3.

Wardlow VS Archer was great stuff, especially Wardlow’s massive rana. I almost didn’t think Wardlow was going to win straight up, but hot damn, him powerbombing Archer four times was wild. MJF calling in W. Morrissey, AKA Big Cass, is quite the surprise. Seems the Forbidden Door is still open to Impact, and I wonder if this is where Wardlow wins by a disqualification because Morrissey will go overboard. One way or another, MJF is delaying his match with Wardlow until Double or Nothing, which will be great stuff, too. I bet Shawn Spears will have to step up, too, and that’ll be fun because Wardlow’s been wanting to bomb him as much as he has MJF.

The sit-down meeting was a great segment because it wasn’t a sit-down meeting. They get meta, that “AEW Galaxy” joke was a long time coming and I loved that they did it, and Kingston had an awesome part of the promos with getting in Jericho’s face. But of course JAS get back at Kingston, Santana & Ortiz, and that was definitely “sports entertainment” with Jericho using a fireball a la Scarlett Bordeaux, The Fiend and Alexa Bliss. The 10 Man Tag was great, but I think the best part was that Cole didn’t do anything in the ring until it was time to finish it off. The Undisputed Elite logo looks really good, and I definitely feel like this is just recreating when Cole was trying to take over Bullet Club in ROH. Omega or White will see Cole’s ego getting too big, he’s out of the club all over again.

Very good promos from Lambert, Scorpio and Sammy to hype up the main event, and they didn’t even really need to pivot that much from how they were before the Sammy controversy let out and things turned on their own. I definitely feel like if this were even a few weeks ago, Tay kicking Lambert in the balls would’ve gone over huge. But one way or another, a great ladder match with Scorpio and Paige VanZant now the Faces. Sammy’s 630 whiff was legit, I almost thought he was out of this but he’s tough enough to take that since he was able to take that 630 table crash weeks ago. But great creativity with a barbed wire ladder, and great for Scorpio to win. Scorpio VS Kaz probably happens before Double or Nothing, because that mixed tag probably happens at the PPV.

My Score: 8.9/10

Ethan Page w/ Dan Lambert VS Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends!

All Ego isn’t in any good mood after losing to Miro on the road to the All-Atlantic Championship. Will he take out his anger on Freshly Squeezed and his new theme song? Or will Cassidy, Trent, Chuck and Motor City all rock out tonight?

Lambert has the mic to say, “It’s not the size of the man in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the man! Says the 145 pound dork of a man with his hands in his pockets. I’m surprised you’re strong enough to pull those skinny jeans up. What’re you gonna do with a real-life heavyweight body slamming you all over that ring?” Lambert tells the ref to listen up. The Michigan Athletic Commission has rules and regulations, and since this isn’t an election, we’re gonna follow them! So unless those two idiots, Trent & Chuck, can show you a valid manager’s license, how about the ref does his job and tell them go be Best Friends backstage?

Fans tell Lambert to STFU but Lambert says he’s still right! The Best Friends aren’t officially managers, so they have to leave. At least their tie-dye suits look awesome. Lambert sings “Hey hey hey, good-bye~” while fans call BS but the bell rings all the same. Ethan mocks Cassidy putting hands in pockets, and says Cassidy should just go ahead and get that out of the way. Fans are thunderous for “Freshly Squeezed!” and Cassidy puts his hands up, to put them in the pockets. Ethan rushes in but Cassidy ducks, only for Ethan to throw him down by his hair! Ethan steps on Cassidy and flexes, but Cassidy kips up!

Cassidy dodges Ethan again, rolls and SHOTGUNS Ethan to a corner! Cassidy kips up again and now he flexes! Fans fire up and Cassidy says he’s gonna raise the roof. Cassidy goes to scoop Ethan but Ethan is pretty hefty. Ethan scoops Cassidy easily but Cassidy easily slips off  to waistlock. Cassidy shoves Ethan to ropes, things speed up and Cassidy hurdles, but Ethan blocks hip toss to hip toss, only for Cassidy to arm-drag! Ethan bails out, Cassidy builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Cassidy puts Ethan in fast! Cassidy goes up, CROSSBODY! Cover, ONE!! Cassidy flexes again and then says he’s gonna raise the roof!

Cassidy goes to scoop but Ethan throws down elbows! Fans boo as Ethan scoops Cassidy again. Cassidy slips off again, shoves Ethan into a corner, then runs, tilt-o-whirl- NO DDT as Ethan shoves Cassidy away then CLOBBERS him with the shoulder tackle! Fans boo but Lambert cheers as Ethan looms over Cassidy. Ethan drags Cassidy up, fans rally for “Freshly Squeezed!” but Ethan puts Cassidy’s hands in his own pockets. Ethan then throws a hard body shot, then taunts the fans. Ethan deadlift suplexes Cassidy, carries him around and then SLAMS him down! Ethan flexes again and grins while fans boo.

Ethan looms over Cassidy again, drags him back up, but Cassidy shoots around to roll him up! TWO, and Ethan BOOTS Cassidy out of the ring! Ethan wants after Cassidy but the ref keeps him back. All to plan as Lambert cracks open a bottle of OJ. Lambert gives Cassidy some sloth kicks of his own, and flexes. Lambert is having a laugh while Ethan lounges and AEW goes picture in picture.

Cassidy gets up, gets in the ring, but Ethan is right on him. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy with a forearm and has him in a corner. Ethan taunts the fans, throws down hands and stomps on Cassidy, but lets off as the ref counts. The ref also warns Lambert to stay back but Ethan drags Cassidy up. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy with another right and Cassidy falls over! Ethan trots around like he won already but it wasn’t a knockout blow. Cassidy slowly sits up at the ropes but Ethan drags Cassidy up. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy, ROCKS him again, and again! Ethan whips Cassidy to ropes to CLOBBER him! Ethan gloats while Cassidy stirs.

Ethan stomps Cassidy on his back, drags him up and bumps him off his boot. Ethan RAMS into Cassidy at the corner, and again, and again. The ref counts, Ethan lets off to reel Cassidy in for a PENDULUM BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ethan is annoyed but he drags Cassidy up again. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy with a haymaker, then has him in the corner again. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ethan whips corner to corner. Cassidy tumbles up and out then slingshot somersaults around Ethan to run and sunset flip! Ethan stays up, drags Cassidy up, and ROUNDHOUSES him into a suplex and SLAM! Cover, TWO!

Fans fire up as Cassidy is still in this! Ethan drags Cassidy back up, Canadian Rack to a crucifix, but Cassidy reaches for his pockets! Ethan stops Cassidy from reaching all the way, but Cassidy keeps trying! Ethan stops Cassidy again, but third time is the charm! The hands are in pockets and Cassidy lands on his feet! But Ethan ROCKS him with a forearm! Ethan brings Cassidy back in, another crucifix lift, but Cassidy RANAS free! Ethan hits buckles, Cassidy shoves him back into the buckles and then table tops him! Fans fire up and Cassidy feeds off the energy! Cassidy climbs up but Lambert grabs at him! Cassidy kicks Lambert away but Ethan ROCKS Cassidy!

Ethan drags Cassidy off the top in a trophy lift! Fans boo but Ethan hits the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Cassidy survives and fans fire up while Ethan is furious! Lambert tells him to finish off this grown up 12-year-old! Ethan rains down fists, fans rally for Cassidy, and Ethan drags Cassidy up. Ethan tells the kids to shut up about Cassidy, then he flips them off! Ethan says this is for the kids, then suplexes Cassidy, but he gets STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE! Fans fire up and so does Cassidy! Cassidy wants to raise the roof, and he goes to scoop, but Ethan switches and shoves, TILT-O-WHIRL DDT!! Cover, TWO!!

Ethan survives but Cassidy throws off his elbow pad! Fans fire up and Cassidy aims, but Lambert creeps onto the apron! Fans boo, the ref warns Lambert, but Cassidy “pushes” Lambert! And “pushes,” and “pushes,” and “pushes!” Fans fire up for the “palm strikes”, Cassidy winds up, and Lambert actually puts up his guard! Cassidy just takes the orange juice from him and takes a swig. Cassidy gives it back, gives a thumbs up, but then dodges Ethan’s sucker punch! Ethan almost hits Lambert, but then he turns around into an ORANGE PUNCH! ORANGE MIST for Lambert! ORANGE PUNCH again! And then, a SLAM!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Now that was fresh! Cassidy gave Ethan and Lambert some Vitamin C, and the Best Friends return to celebrate, with a group hug! GOT to give the people what they want! Will Cassidy rebound from Forbidden Door and head for some gold?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

“Nothing like being in Detroit, and nothing like Blood & Guts live on Dynamite! And here on TBS, he has a match scheduled coming up, but first, he has something he wants to say. Ladies and gentlemen, here is Christian Cage!” Fans boo Captain Charisma as he makes his entrance after what he did to Jungle Boy at the end of Road Rager. But for having a match in literal minutes, Christian doesn’t look dressed to compete at all! Schiavone isn’t sure what more Christian can say than what he said last week, fans fans boo harder.

Christian says that he was asked by upper management, if fans will give him a second to speak, that he is to come out here and apologize for the things he said about Jungle Boy and his family, namely when he brought up his late father. Christian has never apologized for anything he has said or done his entire career, but that being said, “Jungle Boy I’m sorry your entire family isn’t dead, and they had to witness me end you in that ring two weeks ago on Dynamite! Actually, let me clarify. Everyone in your family, except for your mom, Jungle Boy. Call me.” Fans call Christian an A-Hole and he has the nerve to be sarcastic back to them, “Classy as always, Detroit.”

Christian takes the mic now and says this scumbag city’s only good point is that it’s close to Canada. “Now, you Motor City sweat hogs might be wondering why I’m standing out here in street clothes when I requested a match this week. Well it’s simple. I requested a match but I never said it was for me.” And out comes… LUCHASAURUS?! Christian has turned Luchasaurus into his own personal muscle!

Backstage interview with Wardlow and Scorpio Sky.

There is a No Physicality Agreement right now as the Maestro of Mayhem is finally face-to-face with the AEW TNT Champion. Scorpio says he understands Wardlow is “feeling himself” right now, after beating up a bunch of security guards. But Scorpio ain’t no security guard, he is the TNT Champion! Last time Wardlow came after him, Scorpio laid him out, pinned him in the ring, no questions asked. Schiavone says that actually, there was some assistance. Wardlow says yes, but it doesn’t matter. No more talk, Wardlow is getting sick of it. “Bring every member of American Top Team, I’ll treat every one of them like they are security guards.”

And when Wardlow is done with them, he’ll beat Scorpio’s ass and take that title home with him, where it belongs. Oh, talking real big with the No Physicality Agreement, huh? Well let’s do it like this! Next week, Scorpio VS Wardlow, TNT Championship. And if Wardlow’s so tough, it’ll be a Street Fight! Wardlow’s all for that! But will it be Wardlow or Scorpio who comes to regret taking the gloves off?

 

Six Man Tag: Max Caster & Gunn Club VS Danhausen & ???

The Acclaimed and Ass Boys are in Michigan, but it’s rare they make their entrance first. Even so, Caster is ready with a diss track! “Acclaimed and the Gunns, we don’t rap with no undertones. We about to beat the sh*t out of a Juggalo! Danhausen is a lightweight, how you gonna cheer a White guy in whiteface? Embarrass my brothers again, we gon make you drink all the tap water in Flint! We’ll send ya ass to the trash, boys! This is what you get for callin’ them the Ass Boys!” Wait, he always does so… Fans chant it already, and Caster gets the mic to Bowens since Austin & Colten aren’t in the mood.

“DETROOOOOIT! The Acclaimed have arrived!! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” The message has been sent, but who has the Very Nice, Very Evil overlord found as his partners? Danhausen has a mic of his own to say, “Alright, well, Danhausen heard the Ass Boys. They had some sort of challenge for Danhausen to find partners or something. And I dunno, I thought I found some people who are pretty good at wrestling. IT’S FTR!! The THREE BELT TOP GUYS, Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, loaded up with the AAA, ROH and IWGP Tag Team Championships, are here to bring the fight! Will #FTHausen make Caster eat those words he just rapped?

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Cash and fans are fired up. Cash and Austin circle, tie up, and go around. Austin arm-drags Cash away then flexes on the corner. Fans boo but Cash cools off. Cash and Austin tie up again, Cash headlocks but Austin pulls hair and wrenches free to headlock back. Cash powers out, but Austin runs him over! Austin speeds things up, hurdles, then trips Cash! Fans  taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” and it annoys Austin. Austin rushes Cash but Cash sends him into a corner, then back drops him on the rebound. Austin gets up, swings wild, but ends up in a BIG atomic drop!

Cash SPANKS Austin, then arm-drags him down! Austin gets up but Cash tags Dax. FTR mug Austin and then Dax bumps Austin off buckles. Dax CHOPS, CHOPS and snap suplexes! Dax drops a leg, covers, ONE! Dax drags Austin up to tag Cash back in, and then Cash tags Danhausen. Fans fire up as FTR double whip and double drop toehold Austin, for Danhausen to run and drop an elbow! Danhausen covers, ONE! Danhausen drags Austin up, but Austin CHOPS! Austin bumps Danhausen off buckles, tags Colten, and Gunn Club mugs Danhausen. Colten bumps Danhausen off buckles then stomps a mudhole.

Fans rally for Danhausen but Colten whips him corner to corner. Colten runs in but into a BOOT! Danhausen goes up for a FLYING RANA! Danhausen gives Austin a hip toss! Caster gets in but Danhausen hip tosses him! Colten CLOBBERS Danhausen! Fans boo but Colten sits Danhausen up to rain down fists. Colten keeps on Danhausen while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Colten taunts the fans, drags Danhausen over and tags in Caster. They double whip Danhausen hard into the corner and he falls back. Caster looms over Danhausen, stomps him down, then clamps on a cobra clutch onto Danhausen. Danhausen endures, flails and fights up, and he throws body shots! Danhausen is free, but he runs into a BIG elbow from Caster! Caster drops a knee, covers, TWO! Danhausen is still in this but Caster drags him to the corner. Tag to Austin and they stomp Danhausen. Austin tells FTR to “SUCK IT!” while Caster stomps Danhausen. The ref has to keep Dax back as Austin eggs him on, and that allows even Colten to stomp Danhausen.

Austin drags Danhausen up, tags to Colten, and Colten bumps Danhausen off buckles. Colten whips Danhausen corner to corner hard and Danhausen bounces off buckles. Colten drags Danhausen up, puts him back in the Acclaimed Gunn corner, and tags Caster. Caster climbs up, and he drops ax handles on Danhausen. Caster clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Danhausen down. Danhausen endures, fights up, and hits a JAWBREAKER! Dynamite returns to single picture as both men get up. Fans rally but Caster clinches and puts Danhausen back in the corner. Danhausen DECKS Austin but Caster throws body shots on Danhausen.

Danhausen throws body shots back but Caster shoves Danhausen back. Caster rushes in but Danhausen spins him around to a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Both men are down, fans fire up as they crawl, hot tag to Colten and he grabs Danhausen. Colten feeds Danhausen to Caster’s BIG haymaker! Colten then DROPKICKS Danhausen, Austin tags in to cover, but FTR breaks it! Austin protests but fans rally for Danhausen. Austin drags Danhausen up, taunts FTR, and he suplexes. Danhausen slips out, dodges Austin, hot tag to Dax! Dax JABS away then DECKS Austin! Caster rushes in but Dax DECKS him! Colten rushes in but Dax dodges, and Cash DECKS him!

Cash DECKS Colten again, Austin gets up, but FTR get one Ass Boy each, DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEXES! They both hold on, FTR DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEX again! And again! Fans fire up as Motor City becomes Suplex City! Cash tells Billy to SUCK IT before he CLOBBERS Colten! Colten bails out, Cash PLANCHAS him down! Dax still has Austin, GERMAN SUPLEX! GERMAN SUPLEX! Five just for Austin, but here comes a sixth! Dax fires up and so do the fans, Dax whips but Austin reverses, only for Dax to reverse back. Austin dodges to run but into a hip toss! Austin handsprings through and hip tosses, only for Dax to resist, QUICK DRAW!

And then a CURSE~! “Good night, Austin!” Fireman’s carry, but Billy gets in! The ref stops him, but Bowens gets in! He can walk on that leg?! Danhausen drops Austin, but he powers up another curse! Bowens swings his crutch, Danhausen dodges, and Austin gets CLOBBERED! Bowens freaks out, Dax drags him out and Danhausen covers Austin! #FTHAUSEN WINS!!

Winners: Danhausen & FTR, by pinfall

FTR destroy the wheelchair since Bowens doesn’t need it anymore! Will FTR continue to establish themselves as the top tag team in the world today? The Acclaimed Gunn Club try to figure out what went wrong, but maybe they were just CURSED! Bowens helps Austin up but Austin shoves him away! Austin’s obviously upset over the crutch shot but Billy tries to keep the peace. Austin gets heated and Billy shoves him down?! Billy is upset with his son over what happened, but what does this mean for the faction?

 

Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.

Sonjay starts by saying, “Last week, I was happy, Samoa Joe. This week, I’m mad! Because you’re still not at work! And we need to make things official. July 23rd, ROH returns to PPV, Death Before Dishonor! And what we need from you won’t cut it with this pencil. We need you to take this pen, black ink, sign your name on the dotted line, let’s make this official!” Lethal asks, “How long is it going to take? How long’s it gonna take for you to defend that ROH Television Championship against me? Accept the challenge! The ROH Television Championship, let’s put it on the line! The current ROH Television Champion VS the longest reigning ROH Television Champion! Let’s make it official, Joe!” Singh leans in to tell Joe, “Jay is gonna kill you, man.”

 

AEW TBS Championship Open Challenge: Jade Cargill w/ The Baddies VS Leila Grey!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

And now it’s 34-0! Stokely Hathaway gets the mic to say, “So-” But then Jade snatches the mic to say she is tired of all the fans and the women in the back bitchin’ and moanin’! “Now next time, Stokely, get me some real competition.” She shoves the mic back at him, and he says, “Wooooow~! She’s fired up, and I know why. Last night at 11:49 PM, this queen gave an opportunity to every single woman in this locker room. And y’know what happened? You wanna know what happened? Someone who doesn’t even work here, homegirl hasn’t even filled out a W2, even she had the wherewithal to seize the moment.

“Kris Statlander, Athena, you’re not overlooked. You’re just lazy!” But wait! Here comes the Fallen Goddess and Greatest Alien! They rush the ring, Kris CLOBBERS Kiera Hogan while Athena dodges the boot! Athena SHOTGUNS Jade down! Kris storms up to get Jade up and fans fire up as Athena climbs! But Leila Grey SHOVES Athena down!! Leila stomps Kris and Kiera SUPERKICKS Athena! Jade moves Leila aside to stomp Kris! Stokely gets in the ring with them, did Grey just become the newest Baddie on the block? Jade tells her thanks but hell no, and leads her team away. Will Grey use this as motivation to come at #ThatBitch again?

 

The Young Bucks speak.

Matt Jackson says, “And then there were only two.” Nick Jackson says, “You would think we would be happy, right?” Matt wonders where everyone went. Nick says they reached the Promise Land, AKA win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, not once but twice, Matt adding that they’re the first to ever do it. And yet, they’re still unhappy. All their friends are gone. Bobby Fish isn’t cleared, Kyle O’Reilly isn’t cleared, and now even Adam Cole isn’t cleared. Hell, the cameraman isn’t even Brandon Cutler! This is some intern. Good job, by the way, Fred, just keep it steady.

But the Bucks look around the locker room, and they can’t even find anyone who can relate to them. They literally have no friends left. Except… The titles! They’re the champions for good reason. The first TWO-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Matt hears that the Forbidden Door might be creaked open just a little bit. He heard Yoshi-Hashi & Hirooki Goto want a shot at the best tag team in the world. “Well, boys, you can get a shot at us this Friday on Rampage. However, you’re not gonna just get a shot at the titles. No no no. You’re gonna have to beat us one time first to prove who the heck you are.”

The Bucks now who #BISHAMON is in Japan, but we need to show the American/AEW audience that they’re the superstars they claim to be. And if Goto-Hashi loses, they can go to HELL. Nice play on words. But Matt never thought he’d miss Brandon. Cut it, Fred, ya idiot! Will the Young Bucks throw a Superkick Party and kick the former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions back to Japan?

 

But wait! There’s so much more to Rampage this week!

On top of the AEW World Tag Team Championship Eliminator, we will see Nyla Rose VS Toni Storm 1v1 for the first time anywhere. And speaking of first times, it will be the first ever ROYAL RAMPAGE MATCH! Frankie Kazarian, John Silver, Orange Cassidy, Rush, Hangman Page, Konosuke Takeshita, Penta Oscuro, Will Hobbs, Ricky Starks, Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland, Darby Allin, The Butcher and The Blade, Dustin Rhodes, Max Caster, Tony Nese, Matt Hardy, Dante Martin and Brody King will compete for the first shot at Jon Moxley and his Interim AEW World Championship! Who wins that 5% chance of becoming a contender?

 

Jim Ross joins commentary!

Good ol’ JR is here for the main event, and as he knows not everyone is going to be okay after this main event is said and done!

Blood & Guts: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz & Blackpool Combat Club!

This has been building for months, and now it will all be settled in one bloody spectacle! And after winning the man-up advantage at Forbidden Door, will Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker win again and make the entire “AEW Galaxy” APPRECIATE them? Or will the Mad King, the Proud ‘n’ Powerful, the Decoder, the Maniac, and the newest member in the Swiss Cyborg, Claudio Castagnoli, show to everyone why they’re proud to be professional wrestlers, not sports entertainers?

The JAS also make their entrance first. They’re wearing matching red outfits of mesh shirts, suspender strapped tights and red fedoras. Will red be the perfect color to hide all the blood they’re about to lose? We’ll see, after the break.

Dynamite returns as Eddie makes his entrance with Santana & Ortiz. They’ve got the war paint on, and are even bringing weapons to the ring, such as Santana’s barbed wire baseball bat. Then William Regal accompanies Wheeler Yuta and Claudio. Regal joins JR, Taz and Excalibur on commentary, and all that’s left is Jon Moxley’s entrance! The Interim AEW World Champion, head bandaged up from what Hiroshi Tanahashi did to his forehead, makes his way through the crowd as always, and he joins his team.

Sammy and Garcia get Claudio in a corner and bring him out again, but Claudio blocks the double suplex this time! Claudio DOUBLE SUPLEXES Sammy and Garcia! All three men are down, Garcia crawls away to the BCC ring. Claudio stalks after him, but Sammy hurries to CLOBBER Claudio! Garcia BOOTS Claudio at the ropes, then CHOKES him! And he doesn’t have to stop this time! Garcia talks trash on the BCC while Sammy chokes Claudio now, using the suspender straps he took off earlier!

Claudio TOSSES Garcia across the ring like that! Yuta lets Sammy go to stomp him down!

Claudio hauls Garcia up to TOSS him into the steel! Yuta TOSSES Sammy into steel! But the countdown is done, and the JAS sends in Rock Hard Jake Hager! Hager rushes in and Yuta leaps at him, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Claudio chases Garcia into the JAS ring, Garcia runs but into a trophy lift! Claudio TOSSES Garcia to the BCC ring while Hager TOSSES Yuta to the JAS ring! Yuta gets hung up a bit on the ropes in the gap, but now Hager and Claudio stare down!

Yuta and Moxley join Claudio, and Garcia is bleeding from the forehead. Moxley picks Garcia up for Yuta to run, they hit a HART ATTACK on Red Death! Claudio high-fives his team for that one, and then fetches Sammy. Tay is shrieking as Claudio trophy lifts Sammy, to toss him to Moxley’s CUTTER! Then Claudio drags Sammy around while Yuta climbs up top, and Claudio sets Sammy up for Yuta’s DIVING HEADBUTT! A nice shoutout to Bryan Danielson there.

Yuta keeps on Sammy while Claudio and Moxley go back to Hager. Moxley tells Claudio to fetch Garcia, and Yuta’s already working on the HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS as fans chant for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Claudio and Moxley join in with their own HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans love the triple hammering, but the countdown is finishing again.

The table is set up, Eddie SMACKS Hager into falling on the table, and Claudio EuroUppers Parker in a corner. Yuta and Moxley give Garcia their own version of DOOMSDAY! Ortiz helps Eddie get Hager up while Claudio BOOTS Menard against steel! Eddie and Ortiz give Hager a DOUBLE POWERBOMB through the table! The BCC regroup, they go after Garcia and Eddie brings Garcia around. Garcia resists but Eddie HEADBUTTS him! Garcia still resists his face touching steel, but Eddie FISHHOOKS his mouth. The BCC gather up more of those black bags, and they pour them out. It’s THUMBTACKS! And a TON of them!

The entire JAS ring has tacks, while Cesaro and Ortiz are tearing up the BCC ring’s mat! They are exposing the wood! They’re truly tearing the house down! Moxley gives Menard an X-PLEX onto the tacks!! Claudio whips Sammy but he reverses to RANA Claudio into the steel! Sammy BOOTS Claudio, BOOTS Eddie then SUPERKICKS him! Wait, how did Parker end up hanging from the girder on the outside of the ring?! It’s like something from a slasher horror movie! Garcia LASHES Yuta with his belt, then TOSSES him off the type while Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Kingston goes after Garcia and JABS at him with the fork! Eddie and Ortiz are after Garcia together while Moxley shoots around Menard to have a SLEEPER! They’re both falling into the tacks while Eddie and Ortiz DOUBLE SUPERPLEX Garcia! Moxley has the BULLY CHOKE on Menard while they’re in the tacks! Jericho finally makes a move, and he squirts the bottle of rubbing alcohol on Moxley’s face! It stings his bloody wound, and then Jericho hits JUDAS EFFECT! Moxley falls onto the tacks!! Jericho snarls and he looms over Moxley, gloating as if he’s won already. Jericho then gathers up a handful of tacks, and DIGS them into Moxley’s forehead!

Jericho paces around, again the only one standing. Jericho drags Moxley up again, TOSSES him into the steel, then fires off hands. But Moxley brings Jericho in to BITE his face! Moxley then kicks, underhooks, but Jericho fights. Jericho LOW BLOWS Moxley! And then hits a DDT onto the tacks! Jericho THRUSTS a chair at Eddie! Jericho soaks up the heat and gets Moxley’s legs. Dynamite returns to single picture as Jericho drags Moxley around in the tacks, before WALLS OF JERICHO!! Moxley endures as he’s being pushed into the tacks, but here comes Eddie! Fans are thunderous as Eddie gathers up tacks, to THROW into Jericho’s face!!

Jericho lets Moxley go as he scrambles away to the BCC ring. Eddie hurries after him, and he throws haymakers! “F HIM UP, EDDIE, F HIM UP!!” Eddie wants to do just that as he whips Jericho into the steel! Eddie hobbles around, gets the barbed wire bat, but Jericho blasts the FIRE EXTINGUISHER at Eddie! Eddie flounders away and Jericho tells Tay to do something. Tay CLOBBERS referee Aubrey Edwards?! All to get the key to the cage?! Tay unlocks the cage door and fans boo, but here comes RUBY SOHO! The Runaway won’t let Tay get away with this! Ruby drags Tay down and fires off fists! The refs try to stop these two but the ladies brawl to the back!

Jericho climbs up the cage! Didn’t he learn from the first Blood & Guts this doesn’t work out well? But Eddie laughs and he follows Jericho up! Jericho and Eddie stand up, and Eddie fires off hands! Eddie BITES Jericho’s ear, Mike Tyson style! URAKEN! Jericho falls down but he is still on the top. Sammy hurries to climb up and help Jericho as Eddie says Jericho’s going off the edge! Sammy CLOBBERS Eddie first! Sammy looks around, trying to figure out what to do next. Fans rally as the three crawl up top and everyone else is regrouping down below. Sammy stands, he digs Eddie’s face into the steel, and fans chant “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Sammy drags Eddie up but Eddie LOW BLOWS Sammy! Eddie says Sammy F’d up, and down come the straps! Eddie TOSSES Sammy off the edge!! Sammy CRASHES down through the timekeeper’s area!! Fans lose their minds and Eddie grins. But this fight is still going as Dynamite goes picture and picture again!

Eddie looks through the ceiling to check on his team. They’re still in this, too, but medics are checking Sammy. Jericho stands up, Eddie pursues, but Jericho goes to the far side. Jericho warns Eddie, but Eddie doesn’t care, he keeps heading that way. They get forehead to forehead and the forearms start flying! Then they become haymakers, and it’s a hockey fight! Detroit is loving this! Eddie BITES Jericho again, then rips at his shirt. Eddie CHOPS Jericho, Jericho wobbles, and Dynamite goes to break!

Dynamite returns one more time, and Eddie rains down fists on on Jericho. Jericho trips Eddie to rain down fists on him, then get the legs! WALLS OF JERICHO!! Menard RAMS Ortiz into steel on the outside of the cage! The fight is spilling out of the steel, and CLAUDIO climbs! Will Claudio put away his grudge with Eddie to end this with Jericho? BOOT for Jericho, that is a yes! But here comes Menard! Daddy Magic is going to reinforce Jericho now, but Claudio has Jericho’s legs! SWISS SWING on top of the cage! Claudio goes around 10 times, then steps through, but Menard CLUBS Claudio. Menard rains down forearms, then drags Claudio up.

Menard reels Claudio in, Claudio fights the lift, and Eddie has Jericho in the STRETCH PLUM! Claudio trips up Menard, and has a SHARPSHOOTER!! DUAL SUBMISSIONS on top of the cage! Jericho and Menard endure, but MENARD TAPS!! The BCC WINS!!

Winners: Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz & Blackpool Combat Club, by submission

Eddie is confused, he thought he was gonna make Jericho tap. But a win is a win because Claudio finished off Daddy Magic! Eddie is a bit upset by that, but can’t he be happy for the group? Ortiz, Yuta and Moxley are, and even Santana, despite his apparent injury. Will winning take care of the hard feelings? Is the BCC finally through with the JAS?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, especially with it being Blood & Guts. A great opener with Cassidy and Ethan Page, with some Hellish cleverness from Lambert getting Best Friends ejected and putting advantage back to his side. But of course, that didn’t change anything and Cassidy came out the winner. It is also good to see Chuck Taylor is still here, there was concern he was leaving AEW after deleting tweets. But with Cassidy winning, he maintains momentum and could even win his way up to one of the midcard titles. There’s history between Cassidy and PAC, so an All-Atlantic Championship feud that also helps give us some Best Friends VS Death Triangle closure would be a great move.

It was fairly clear, though perhaps a bit mind-boggling, that Luchasaurus was going to turn Heel with Christian Cage’s influence. Luchasaurus looks pretty awesome in all black gear, mask included, and of course he demolished Serpentico. Jungle Boy is apparently actually injured, not just out with the kayfabe injury from the Con-Chair-To, but that will give Luchasaurus plenty of time to shine as a singles guy and as a Heel monster, and we’ll eventually get JB VS Luchasaurus on the way to JB going after Christian.

Wardlow and Scorpio had a good promo interaction to set-up their title match, and a Street Fight is of course setting up interference. I just can’t be sure which way this goes, because Scorpio could use interference to win again, or Wardlow becomes that powerful to win even with interference. When I saw that the Six Man Tag had mystery partners for Danhausen, I just knew it would be FTR. Fans love FTR, fans love Danhausen, this seemed like a natural combination. The Six Man Tag was a lot of fun, and of course #FTHausen wins to keep momentum after Forbidden Door. And while the split in Acclaimed Gunn Club was coming, it happening because of this loss was a small surprise. Billy is siding with the Acclaimed, of course, and I can’t wait to see how this sorts out.

Jade was of course winning her title match tonight, especially because it was Leila Grey, who hasn’t even won one match during her time on Dark and Elevation. But I was hoping that with Grey helping Jade and Kiera, Grey would get a spot as the new Baddie. Instead, Jade snubs Grey, and we’ll still wait to see who subs in. At the same time, I don’t get how that promo from Stokely was supposed to work this in kayfabe. If it’s an Open Challenge, I suppose Grey answered first and that’s it, but then he pokes holes by bringing up how Athena and/or Kris should’ve answered it to get their shot at Jade. Maybe they were just overthinking the logic of their own storytelling, but maybe this story still finds its way to giving one or both Athena and Kris Statlander their title shots.

The Young Bucks had a good promo to help the audience understand that sadly, yes, Adam Cole is hurt after Forbidden Door. But with Fish kayfabe out, and Kyle and Adam more or less legitimately out, this gives the Undisputed Elite a chance to return all together and do who knows what. But Bucks calling out Goto-Hashi, they’re going to have a really good match, but I would think Bucks win because the only ones taking those belts off them are the tag team belt collectors, FTR.

And what a big Rampage we’re having, with that match, Nyla VS Storm, and then the “Royal Rampage,” which I can’t see being like the Royal Rumble with sending one man out at a time. It could just be a huge battle royal, just on Rampage, but who knows. Out of those 20, I would think Hangman doesn’t get this, his story back to the world title needs to be a bit like his journey to the top the first time. He has to scratch and claw, no shortcuts, and I would love if Hangman gets the interim belt right before CM Punk returns so the Undisputed AEW World Championship can be between Hangman and Punk in a Double or Nothing rematch. As for who will/should get this, I’d love if it was Rush for someone completely fresh, or maybe Darby or even Dustin Rhodes for a fan favorite moment.

And of course, Blood & Guts was an epic main event because it was an entire hour. Great stuff from all 12 men, as well as Tay and Ruby Soho. Sadly, Santana got legit hurt from that rough urenage, it could be a torn ACL. It sucks because Santana surely had a lot to do in this match, and it sucks because he and Ortiz could’ve gotten in on some tag title story before the inevitable FTR VS Bucks for all the belts. But even with Santana going down, everything was a bloody as it should’ve been, and what a great way to finish things. Eddie throwing Sammy off was awesome, and explains why the timekeeper’s area got so big.

I almost thought that was a sign JAS was winning, but in the end, it’s BCC. If Bryan had been in this, I bet the finish would be exactly the same with Bryan getting Menard to tap/surrender, and Eddie being annoyed by that. It’s good that Eddie gets over his beef with Claudio, for now, and while Garcia VS Yuta for the ROH Pure Championship is already on the books, there could be a lot of different things the rest of these guys do, such as Claudio getting in on the All-Atlantic Championship and Eddie still settling things with Jericho 1v1 to put the feud to bed.

My Score: 9.3/10

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Fuego back in action, I hope we get to see him take on Sammy Guevara for that impersonation angle. Good to see Athena (Ember Moon) in action with a returning Amber Nova. Good to see Ariya Daivari on the same night as old WWE running mate, Tony Nese. And speaking of, Nese VS Yuta is going to be a good one, might even cover that one because of how unique the Pure Rules matches are.

PLAY BY PLAY

ROH Pure Championship: Wheeler Yuta VS Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling!

The Decoder has been doing the Blackpool Combat Club proud, from Best of the Super Juniors 29 to holding onto this title. Will Yuta still have this title as AEW heads into Blood & Guts? Or will the Premier Athlete finally put some money where his 8 pack is?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and the 150th episode of Dark has a golden main event!

The judges for this match are BJ Whitmer, Mercedes Martinez and Christopher Daniels. The ref calls for the Code of Honor handshake, Nese is obliged to take it, but he doesn’t shake Yuta’s hand long. Fans rally for Yuta as he and Nese circle. Nese flexes on Yuta, but Yuta hooks that arm for a fireman’s carry takeover! Cover, ONE and Nese gets away. Yuta flexes back, the two circle and feel out the grapple. They tie up, Nese waistlocks and SLAMS Yuta, but Yuta sit sup and pries free to wrench the arm. Yuta drags Nese down into a double wristlock, then hammerlocks. Nese reaches back, rolls, and wrenches to wristlock.

Nese facelocks, snap suplex to a cover, TWO! Nese facelocks, Yuta slips out and hammerlocks. Nese reaches for ropes, but in Pure Rules, each man can only have three ropebreaks so he decides to forgo using one. Nese fights up but Yuta cranks the hammerlock. Fans rally, Nese drop toeholds and facelocks. Yuta slips out again and Nese is frustrated as he’s back in the hammerlock. Nese fights up again, Yuta wrenches but Nese knees low. Nese whips Yuta to a corner, Yuta reverses but Nese stops himself to elbow back. Nese goes up to moonsault but Yuta dodges! Yuta goes up and over in the corner, then scoops to SLAM and SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Fans rally for Yuta as he clamps onto the arm again. Nese fights up, but Yuta wrenches to headlock. Yuta BOPS Nese in the head, and Sterling protests! But Yuta used an open palm, it is legal! Nese shoves Yuta and argues, but Yuta rushes back in. They tie up, go around and end up on the ropes. The ref wants them to let off, and Nese DECKS Yuta with a cheap shot! Fans boo but Nese gets away with it. Nese then LARIATS Yuta and covers, TWO! Nese hurries to get a leg and he KICKS Yuta in the back over and over to get him in the HALF CRAB! Yuta endures, thinks about it, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Nese lets off, and that’s one down for Yuta.

Nese looms over Yuta, brings him up, and ROCKS him with a forearm. Yuta staggers to a corner, the judges are making notes, and Nese whips Yuta corner to corner hard! Yuta bounces off buckles and flounders around while Nese flexes. Fans rally, Nese drags Yuta up, but Yuta throws body shots. Nese whips Yuta hard into another corner! Yuta writhes, Nese covers, TWO! Nese hurries to facelock Yuta and bring him up for a suplex! Cover, TWO! Nese wraps on the body scissors! Yuta endures, fans rally, but Nese puts on the squeeze. Nese dares Yuta to use a ropebreak but Yuta pushes back to a cover, TWO!

Nese keeps on the squeeze but Yuta still endures. Yuta pushes back again, another cover, TWO! Yuta throws elbows back and gets free! Fans rally but Nese RAMS Yuta to a corner! Nese puts Yuta up top, climbs up after him, but Yuta fights the suplex. Yuta throws body shots and Nese hops down. But Nese rolls to SHORYUKEN! And then a fireman’s carry, but Yuta is holding ropes! That’s ROPEBREAK #2! The ref counts, Nese lets go and everyone, even Sterling, makes note. Yuta has one ropebreak left, will Nese make Yuta use it? Nese kicks Yuta around, pie faces him, but Yuta CHOPS! And forearms! Yuta fires off forearms but Nese shoves him away.

Yuta runs in at the corner, Nese BOOTS him away, then leaps, into an atomic drop! ENZIGURI! Yuta fires up, goes corner to corner, A-LIST LARIAT! Nese staggers, Yuta goes up top, FLYING LARIAT! Fans fire up and Nese goes out. Yuta kips up to build speed and DIVE! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans rally up for Yuta but Sterling tells them to shut up. Yuta puts Nese in, but Sterling trips Yuta!! Nese gets Yuta in a facelock, and now the third ROPEBREAK is used! Sterling cheers like that’s the win already! Yuta is upset but he storms up to Nese. Nese trips Yuta into the BOSTON CRAB! Yuta endures, and he throws Nese away!

Nese returns but Yuta DECKS him! Wait, that was a closed fist to the face! Those aren’t allowed in Pure Rules, so that’s a warning on Yuta! Sterling tells Yuta that’s what he gets! Yuta calms down but Nese eggs him on. Nese SPITS at Yuta, and Yuta rushes in! Nese fireman’s carries, Yuta slips off but Nese elbows him away. Yuta uses ropes to rewind and waistlock, GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Nese escapes and Yuta, a bloody nose or lip, is roaring! Fans fire up with Yuta and he rushes in at Nese to whip him to ropes. Nese reverses, slips under to pump handle and scoop, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up as Yuta survives, but Nese puts on the BOSTON CRAB! No ropebreaks means Yuta has to get free on his own! Yuta fights, reaches out, gets the ropes out of instinct, but then climbs the ropes and uses leverage to trip Nese up! Nese comes back to HEEL KICK Yuta! Yuta flops, Nese goes to the corner. Nese climbs up top, for a PREMIER 450 FLOP as Yuta moves! HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Then the STF!! With a STRAITJACKET VARIANT! Nese taps, Yuta wins!!

Winner: Wheeler Yuta, by submission (still ROH Pure Champion)

Yuta was up against it, but he came out the victor! And though Nese doesn’t want to, he shakes Yuta’s hand to uphold the Code of Honor. The Decoder proves he can grit it out and fight through the blood, but will he be able to help Blackpool Combat Club make it through Blood & Guts?

Wait, speaking of! Daniel Garcia LEAPS off the stage and CLOBBERS Yuta! Jericho Appreciation Society’s Red Death punches away on Yuta’s bloody face, and then Angelo Parker & Matthew Menard join in! They all stomp Yuta, put him back in the ring, and stomp him more! Fans boo as Menard gets the mic. “Take a look! Take a look! You like it, Yuta? Huh? Blackpool Combat Club, huh? Take a look! Tomorrow night, live on Dynamite in Detroit, Michigan, BLOOD & GUTS! You think you’re ready? I don’t think so! YOU GOT NOTHING!”

Parker then takes the mic and says the Jericho Appreciation Society proved they are the five-star symbol of excellence. So at the end of Blood & Guts, the AEW Galaxy will see that Yuta and his “pro-wrestler pieces of garbage” APPRECIATE them! Garcia stands on Yuta and says, “After Blood & Guts, I’ma strip you of your honor, and I’ma strip you of your belt, too.” Garcia stakes his claim to the Pure Championship, but will he have to survive pure carnage inside that double cage?


My Thoughts:

A very good main event from Yuta and Nese, and I like that there were some great parallels between this match and Yuta’s previous ROH Pure title defense, such as running low on ropebreaks. Yuta wins, of course, but then a great go-home bit with the attack from JAS. Garcia, Parker and Menard gave good promos there and it is clear this is going to extend past Blood & Guts, regardless of who wins the match. There’s still so much about Garcia that makes me think he should be in BCC rather than fighting them, but Garcia VS Yuta is going to be an awesome ROH Pure Championship match. You can bet the Code of Honor won’t be upheld there, though.
