Dustin Rhodes speaks.

“Dallas, Texas, what a night we’re having! Rampage is kicking ass live right now!” But it seems like The Natural has been on this one last ride for quite some time. Lance Archer got taken out of that top five and Dustin proved that he’s still got it! After FIVE DECADES in this business! But this war ain’t over. Dustin wants to say something from his heart first. He is making a challenge to a man who, without a doubt, is one of the greatest wrestlers on the planet. Someone who is a dream match of Dustin’s. There is ‘bucket list” written all over this one. Dustin wants CM Punk!

Best in the World, The Natural, Pittsburgh and Dynamite! If you can’t get excited about that, Dustin doesn’t know what to tell ya! Dustin knows they’re gonna blow the roof off the place! What will Punk say to this challenge? Guess we’ll find out in the Steel City.

 

Owen Hart Memorial Women’s Tournament Qualifier: Ruby Soho VS Robyn Renegade!

We already have Jamie Hayter VS Toni Storm set, and Red Velvet and Hikaru Shida are also in the tournament. The Runaway was so close to winning the TBS Championship Tournament, can she hop into this one and run away with it? Or will she be taken out by a Renegade in Dallas?

The bell rings, Soho and Renegade circle and tie up. Robyn pushes Ruby to a corner, the ref counts, and Robyn lets off at 3 to pie face Ruby. Fans boo but Ruby rushes in to waistlock. Robyn fights the hold, stomps a foot and shoves Ruby. Fans rally behind Ruby as she and Robyn tie up again. Ruby hammerlocks, Robyn wrenches through to have a wristlock. Robyn taunts Ruby with more pie faces but Ruby uses ropes to flip through. Robyn just throws Ruby down by her hair! Robyn uses ropes as defense but Ruby is fired up. They go again. Ruby spins Robyn to ROCK, UPPERCUT and HEADBUTT over and over and over!

Rampage returns and Ruby slips off a scoop. Robyn fights the saido, runs, but Ruby reels her in! SAIDO!! Robyn flounders and fans fire up! Ruby fires up, Robyn gets to ropes. Ruby runs in, and she rallies with lariats and elbows! Strike fest and a sobat! Ruby runs, YAKUZA KICK! Robyn flounders to a corner, Ruby runs in but Robyn dodges. Ruby elbows, goes up, and now NIGHTSHADE! Ruby then waistlocks, but Robyn holds ropes. The ref backs Ruby off and Robyn flops out. Wait, her sister, Charlotte, takes her place! Twin Magic in AEW! Ruby staggers over, drags Charlette around and then goes up the corner. SUPER SENTON onto knees!

Charlette gets Ruby up in a fireman’s carry, “This is your hero?!” But Ruby slips out, NO FUTURE PELE!! But then Charlette flops out! She goes under the ring, and Robyn returns from the other side! Robyn slithers back in, rolls Ruby up, TWO!! Robyn kicks but Ruby blocks to KNEE! Ruby reels Robyn in, SIDEWINDER! Cover, Ruby wins!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall (advances to the tournament)

Charlette reappears and is shocked! Ruby survives Twin Magic, but who will she be meeting in the Owen Hart Memorial Tournament?

Speaking of which…

When AEW returns to Pittsburgh, it becomes #Brittsburgh because Britt Baker is back in action! She is taking on the debuting Danielle Kamela in the sixth Owen Hart Memorial Women’s Tournament qualifier! Will the Doctor be in this historic tournament?

 

Mark Henry speaks to tonight’s main eventers.

He says this is the biggest match in AEW history, and Hangman Page challenged Cole to this Texas Deathmatch. Henry asks if this is the last chapter between the Adams. Hangman says Cole has been a thorn in his side and knife in his back for far too long. But what they should’ve been doing is writing a will! Hangman ends Cole’s obsession with him and the title. And if Cole’s lucky, Hangman ends his entire career. But Cole tells Hangman that tonight will be the worst night in Hangman’s career. It has been a long time coming for Cole to become AEW World Champion!

Cole vows he will destroy Hangman, end Hangman, and remind the world that Cole is better than Page, even if it means Hangman’s a dead man in the process! Then there’s been enough talk, it’s time for the main event!

 

AEW World Championship Texas Deathmatch: Hangman Page VS Adam Cole!

AEW Revolution’s Battle of the Adams is being revisited, and there will be no questions, excuses or doubt left in anyone’s mind as to who the better man is after this! With this ending in only tap outs or knockouts, who won’t so much win as survive here in the heart of Texas?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s time to throw out the rulebook and caution to the wind!

Fans are fired up already as the two stare down. Each man has a chair already, and the two circle. Cole swings, misses, but he avoids Page’s! But then Hangman comes back to SMACK Cole out of the ring! Hangman goes out after Cole but Cole kicks low! Fans already chant, “Let’s Go, Adam!” “Adam Sucks!” as Cole grabs the chair back. Cole stalks Hangman around the way, but Hangman BOOTS the chair into Cole’s face! Hangman rains down fists then lets off to bring Cole up. Hangman whips Cole hard into railing, then whips him into steel steps! Cole cutches his leg as he falls over and fans fire up.

Cole crawls to the ramp but Hangman follows him. Fans chant for “COWBOY SH*T!” as Hangman DECKS Cole. Hangman clears the timekeeper’s table and smacks Cole off it! Cole avoids the powerbomb and hurries away. Cole BOOTS Hangman but Hangman DECKS Cole over railing! Hangman then follows Cole out into the crowd and fans fire up more as they brawl! Hangman ROCKS Cole again, then follows him up into the bleachers! Fans fire up as Hangman digs Cole into the hand railing with his boot! Hangman gets a beer from a fan, and SMASHES it on Cole’s head! Then chugs what’s left!

Cole staggers away but Hangman pursues. Hangman loses track of where Cole went, and finds him going around some chairs. Cole gets to the ring, Hangman follows him right in! Hangman rains down fists, then he gets one of those chairs from earlier. Hangman climbs up with the chair, but he fakes Cole’s superkick out! FULL METAL QUEBRADA! Direct hit and down goes Cole! The standing count begins for Cole but Hangman wedges the chair inside the corner. Hangman stomps Cole, then RAMS him into the chair! Fans fire up more as Hangman brings the chair out, to take a seat!

Cole is down on the outside and a standing count begins. Hangman paces then takes a seat again. Cole sits up and he’s bleeding from the forehead! The count is 7 of 10 but Cole stands! Hangman BOOTS him from the apron, then RAMS him into railing as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hangman rains down fists to try and open up that bloody forehead more! Cole is down, the ref checks on him, but he’s still okay to continue. The standing count begins but Cole drags himself up slowly. Hangman meanwhile brings out a TABLE! Hangman sets that up at ringside, and he drags Cole up for a haymaker! And another! And another! Cole crawls tot he ramp but Hangman drags him over to the table! Hangman reels Cole in but Cole fights the suplex to snap suplex Hangman to the ramp! Hangman writhes and Cole stands up. Cole drags Hangman up and whips him into steel steps now!

Cole smacks Hangman off the apron before putting him in the ring. Cole brings out another chair from under the ring and makes Hangman sit in the one from earlier. SHINING WIZARD! Hangman falls out of the chair and now the standing count is on him! Cole leaves Hangman behind to go fetch a CHAIN from under the ring! Hangman makes it to a corner but Cole wraps the chain around the top rope. Cole makes sure it’s tied to it, then he gathers up the rest as Rampage returns to single picture. Hangman throws body shots and haymakers to bring Cole down! Then a ROLLING ELBOW! Hangman snarls, runs, but into a CHAIN CLOTHESLINE!

Fans fire up while Hangman sputters by the ropes. Cole sits a chair up again, then adds the other chair. The chairs sit face to face, but then Cole decides to have them go back to back! But Hangman fireman’s carries! Cole fights free and waistlocks, Hangman switches, but Cole PELES! Cole aims, but Hangman blocks the superkick! Hangman then fireman’s carries, to DEATH VALLEY DRIVER onto the chair wedge!! Cole writhes and fans lose their minds! The standing count is on both Adams, but Hangman uses the chairs to get up at 5 of 10. Hangman folds the chairs up, sets them down, and Cole stands at 8.

Hangman KICKS Cole, then goes outside. Hangman brings out more chairs, a few more after that, and then gets in to organize them into a pile. But Cole mule kicks! Cole hops up, leaps, but no Panama Sunrise, DEADEYE!! Both men are down again and the standing count begins again! Hangman clutches his knee while Cole rolls to the apron. Cole rolls off the apron to stand at 8, but then Hangman stands on his own power. Hangman goes to the apron, fans fire up as he climbs, ARIHARA MOONSAULT into a SUPERKICK!!! Cole leaves Hangman down on the outside as fans lose their minds again!

The standing count begins, Hangman is dazed but he sits up at 4. He flounders at 5, drags himself up and in at 7, but Cole is up top! PANAMA SURNRISE! Narrowly avoiding the chair pile! The standing count begins again, Hangman has a cut on his chin. Hangman manages to roll and get to ropes at 7. Hangman uses those to get up at 9! Cole is frustrated, but he goes to the apron. Cole bumps Hangman off buckles, then climbs up the corner. Cole drags Hangman up the corner, but Hangman holds onto ropes! Hangman throws body shots and a headbutt! Hangman stands and has Cole now, SUPER FALL AWAY SLAM onto the chair pile!!!

Fans are electric as both men are down again! The standing count is back, it reaches 5 but Hangman manages to stand. Cole is still down, “This is Awesome!” and Cole uses ropes to stand at 8! Hangman gets a chair from the pile and sits it up. Hangman drags Cole over to make him sit in the chair. Hangman wants to go to the ropes but Cole grabs the pants. Hangman ELBOWS Cole hard, but Cole holds onto the waistband! Hangman ELBOWS again, then gets another chair. Hangman decides to sit with Cole to get in his face! “HIT ME!” Cole throws a forearm, so Hangman hits back, and they fire off!

Fans rally as the two stand up and have a hockey fight! The chairs move aside, both men haymaker! ROLLING ELBOW from Hangman, BOOT from Cole! SUPER- NO! Hangman blocks but the DRAGON WHIP comes through! BOOT from Hangman, he goes to the apron, SUPERKICK from Cole! Cole says Hangman will never beat him, beat Kenny Omega, and will always be a joke of a champion! Cole then gets a chair, only to turn around into a BUCK SHOT!! Fans are thunderous again as Hangman takes off his leather belt to strap Cole to the ropes! Hangman then goes looking under the ropes, and finds a chair with barbed wire on it!

Hangman brings the barbed wire chair over and fans are shout, “YOU SICK F*CK!” Hangman wants to literally tear into Cole with this barbed chair, but he just can’t bring himself to do it. He throws the chair down, and undoes the belt. But Cole LOW BLOWS Hangman! Cole SUPERKICKS Hangman down! And SUPERKICKS him again! Cole runs, into a LARIAT! Hangman gets the barbed wire off the chair to put it around his arm! He BOOTS Cole, then stands him up. Cole SUPERKICKS Hangman again! Hangman ends up on the apron, Cole goes out to join him. Cole aims at the table Hangman set up as he climbs, but Hangman CLOBBERS him with the wire!

Hangman takes the wire off his arm, and he puts it around Cole’s head! DEADEYE through the table!! Fans lose their minds all over again and the standing count is on both men! Hangman gets himself to the ring at 7 of 10, up and in, and Cole is still down! Hangman wins!!

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

Hangman Adam Page goes 2-0 against Cole, and the sequel WAS better than the original! But will this be the finale of Adam VS Adam? Or will Cole find a way to force a trilogy?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome Rampage! A great opening Six Man out of Blackpool Combat Club and Gunn Club. Yuta did a lot of the work but this was also another moment for him to shine. A good quick pin finish so that Billy and Gunn Club aren’t really hurt in this first loss as a trio, but it was also a good first win for BCC. I legit did not hear the other guy’s name so Butcher will always and forever have a win over Three Question Marks. It was not even needed, we know Butcher is taking on Wardlow for Dynamite next week, that squash spot was better served for, oh I dunno, another women’s match. Hell, give Marina Shafir another match to try and make up for the weirdness during her match with Skye Blue.

Great promo from Dustin Rhodes to call out CM Punk, that is going to be a great match. But also, Dustin mentioning Archer, I have half a feeling Archer goes after Dustin. Maybe Punk takes on Archer to build up more momentum towards a Double or Nothing AEW World Championship match. Soho VS Robyn was really good stuff, and I like that the Renegade sisters pulled a Twin Magic spot. It was also good that Soho still won, she deserves to be in this tournament as much as anyone. If Hayter and Toni are already having it out in the first round, I hope the winner of that is taking Soho on in a semifinal match.

Very good promo exchange from the Adams, though also maybe a bit standard grudge match stuff. Maybe they were rushing since this was live and only had the hour. But the Adam Texas Deathmatch was awesome stuff, and of course both guys bleed. But I do like that Hangman ended up with the rare busted chin blood spot. They maybe rushed the conflict in Hangman on using that barbed wire chair, but again they only had an hour. The barbed wire crown and Deadeye driver through the table was an awesome finish for the match, and Hangman retaining makes a lot of sense. This is finally Hangman’s time, he is going to give everything he has in every match to hold onto the belt.

My Score: 8.7/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring!

Philly is fired up to sing Judas for Le Champion as he leads the way out for Tay Melo, Sammy Guevara, Anna Jay “A S,” “Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard, “Cool Hand” Angelo Parker, and a less than enthused Daniel Garcia. And no, it has nothing to do with them all wearing matching purple satin suits. The JAS goes to the ring where there is a purple carpet, purple balloons, golden number 8 balloons to acknowledge this is #OCHO for Jericho, and wow! Luigi Primo is there spinning pizza dough! Seems he catered this event for the JAS. Fans cheer but Parker gets the mic to say, “AEW Galaxy… APPRECIATE US!”

Parker says if there’s one thing we all know about Philly, it’s that Philly is the city of LOSERS! Fans boo that but Parker knows they’re not used to championship celebrations. But don’t worry, the JAS is here to give them that gift! Everyone, stand up and join in celebrating THE OCHOOOO~! Fans are a bit torn, but Menard says “What a celebration we have for you tonight! Daddy Magic put the call in to the pizza guy, Luigi Primo,” who is still spinning dough. Luigi, Daddy Magic loves a bit o’ the pizza. What kind of pizza did Luigi make for them tonight? He made the best pizza! From NEW YORK CITY!

That’s right! Philly thought they were getting a taste? “I DON’T THINK SO! No pizza for you! No pizza for you! No pizza for anybody!” Anna says NONE of the fans get pizza. Fans chant, “We Want Pizza!” Anna tells them to shut up! They don’t shut up. “I’LL CHOKE YOU OUT!” They don’t care! Anna says they do get the greatest ROH World Champion of all time, #THEOCHO, Chris Jericho~! Fans are again torn. Jericho takes the mic now and says, “You guys want pizza?” “YES!” “You can’t have any. What you can have is the most important ROH champion in history, THE OCHO, Chris Jericho!

“Everyone knows I’m the most honorable man in AEW, and now it’s official. I’m also the most viewed ROH champion. In just one week, more people have seen me win this belt than all other ROH champions put together, cuz no one knows about ROH! But you’re about to! Because I’m gonna change the way ROH is remembered. This is the era of the Ring of Jericho. And I’m gonna start tonight,” as the others dig into the pizza, “by having my first title defense against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers today, former ROH Champion, BANDIDO.” Fans cheer for that!

Jericho knows Bandido “never got the rematch for this championship that he deserves, I’m gonna give it to him tonight. Trust me, the man is gonna blow your mind. But trust me once again, he is a pro-wrestler, and like I always say, sports entertainers beat pro-wrestlers every single time.” Fans boo but the JAS applaud. And speaking of sports entertainer, it’s the ROH Pure Champion, Danny Garcia! Fans cheer for Garcia and Jericho knows they’ve had some miscommunications and some issues, but Jericho wants Garcia to know that Garcia is an amazing champion, an amazing sports entertainer, and he bought a gift just for Garcia.

Fans chant, “You’re a Wrestler!” but Garcia accepts the Gift of Jericho. It’s… a purple bucket hat! Jericho puts it on him! YES! That is the look of the Best Technical Sports Entertainer of All Time! Garcia doesn’t look happy, though. Garcia takes the hat off and fans cheer! Garcia throws it down and fans cheer more! And then Garcia DECKS Luigi! Fans boo that a bit but Garcia gets a mic. “This is enough. Chris, this is enough. This isn’t me. This is never what I envisioned myself doing when I wanted to get into this business. And I tolerated it for a little bit, but I think I’ve finally had enough.” Fans cheer that!

Garcia says he wants to tell Jericho something he’s been meaning to get off his chest for a long time now: “Chris… I think it’s time for me to-” Jericho cuts Garcia off by pushing the mic down. Jericho then tells Garcia to really think about what he’s about to say. “This is a crossroads for you. Make the right decision, you can be bigger than your wildest dreams in this business. Make the wrong decision, and I’m gonna have to take you out.” Jericho is going to ask Garcia just this once and Garcia needs to answer properly: “Are you a sports entertainer? Or are you a pro-wrestler?” Fans cheer for the one they wanna hear!

Garcia stares Jericho down and then brings the mic up. But then BRYAN DANIELSON makes his way out here! William Regal sees Bryan out to the stage, but the American Dragon is all alone as he approaches the ring. Bryan picks up the bucket hat to look at it. “Chris, it seems to me like you’re trying to tell Daniel Garcia what you think he should be. Garcia, listen. I have an infinite amount of respect for you. You’re a grown man. You can do whatever you want. If you wanna stay with the Jericho Appreciation Society, you can stay with them. If you wanna come to the Blackpool Combat Club,” which fans cheer loudly, “you can come with us.”

If Garcia wants to train with the JAS, or if he wants to train with the BCC. If Garcia wants to team with the JAS or if he wants to team with the BCC- Jericho tells Bryan to shut his mouth! Fans boo but Jericho says he is sick of Bryan trying to poach his guy! Garcia belongs to Jericho! Garcia does what Jericho tells him to do! Except Garcia gets in Jericho’s face! Garcia tells Jericho they’re getting one thing straight right now: Garcia does NOT belong to Jericho, and he does NOT have to do what he tells Garcia.

But let’s not get too serious now. This is supposed to be entertaining, right? So if Jericho wants sports entertainment, what if Garcia grabbed some of this pizza and he threw it on the ground. Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Garcia throws the pizza out of the ring! What if Garcia woke up Luigi Primo and started tossing dough with him? Would that be entertaining? “YES!” Justin Roberts, what if you and Garcia were a tag team? That’d be entertaining, right? Fans are more torn on that one. Garcia asks if the fans think it’d be entertaining if Garcia was in a tag team with Bryan Danielson. “YES!! YES!! YES!!”

Garcia asks Jericho if he wants to know what Garcia thinks would be really entertaining. If he and Bryan teamed up against Jericho’s little brother, Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho! Fans cheer for that one! Menard says he is sick of Garcia’s crap! For one year, when he had NOTHING and NOBODY, Menard & Parker had his back! And now Garcia wants to spit in their face and turn his back on them for “this piece of crap right here?” Menard oughta punch Bryan in the face and knock him out right now! Bryan says, “Right now? Wait, do you wanna punch me right now? Right here, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania?” Fans want it!

Well then, Bryan has good news! He was told that he can come out here and have a match with anyone who wants to fight him! And Menard said he wanted to fight, so why don’t we do the “Entertainer,” Daddy Magic VS “The Heart of Professional Wrestling,” Bryan Danielson! And right here, right now!! Menard is fired up, the rest of the JAS holds him back, but will the American Dragon be the one doing the slaying tonight?

Bryan Danielson VS Matthew Menard w/ Angelo Parker!

Menard shoves Bryan and the bell rings! Fans fire up as Menard talks trash on Bryan. Menard shoves Bryan again, and again, but then Bryan EuroUppers! And EuroUppers! And EuroUppers! Menard kicks low, bumps Bryan off buckles and RAMS his shoulder in! Menard RAMS again and again, then climbs up to rain down fists! The ref counts, Menard lets off at 4, and he RAMS into Bryan some more! Parker applauds but then Bryan turns things around. Bryan CHOPS Menard, KICKS him, then KICKS and KICKS! Fans rally, Bryan wrenches and goes after the arm but Menard powers out. Bryan runs Menard over, then arm-drags him around!

Bryan has the armlock and he bends the fingers! Bryan top wristlocks to then isolate the arm, to STOMP it! Menard clutches the elbow but stands up into more EuroUppers. Bryan has Menard in a corner but Menard kicks low. Menard bumps Bryan off buckles, fires off forearms, then CHOPS! Bryan snarls but Menard CHOPS again. And again! Bryan EuroUppers Menard back! And again! Bryan whips Menard corner to corner but Menard reverses. Bryan BOOTS Menard, goes up, but Menard SHOVES Bryan down! Bryan tumbles to the floor and fans boo. Menard goes out to fetch Bryan and whips him hard into railing!

AEW goes picture in picture as Menard storms up on Bryan. Menard whips Bryan into more railing, then he brings Bryan around to whip into more railing! Menard refreshes the ring count and Parker taunts Bryan. Bryan crawls while Menard soaks up the heat. Menard watches Bryan as he gets in the ring, and he stomps Bryan at the ropes. Menard digs his knee in, lets off as the ref counts, and Menard soaks up more heat while Parker talks trash. The ref tells Parker to back away and Menard drags Bryan up for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Another cover, ONE! Menard clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Bryan down.

Bryan endures, fights up, and fans rally as Bryan throws body shots. Bryan is free, he EuroUppers Menard again then whips. Menard reverses and CLOBBERS Bryan with an elbow! Menard soaks up more heat while Bryan gets to ropes. Menard stomps Bryan, rains down punches, but lets off as the ref counts the ropebreak. Menard drags Bryan up, ROCKS him in a corner, then CHOPS him. Bryan goes to another corner but Menard keeps after him with another CHOP! Dynamite returns to single picture as Menard whips corner to corner. Bryan reverses but Menard comes back to LARIAT!

Both men are down but Menard drags Bryan up for a short arm LARIAT! And then another! Cover, TWO! Menard is frustrated and fans rally for Bryan. Bryan grits his teeth, Menard gives him kicks to the chest, and a CHOP! Bryan snarls and stands up. Menard CHOPS again, but Bryan just powers up! Menard CHOPS again but Bryan just eggs him on! Menard CHOPS, Bryan CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Bryan fires off CHOPS and KICKS in the corner! Bryan whips but Menard reverses, only for Bryan to go up and over! Bryan keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! Fans fire up while Menard flounders to a corner!

Bryan runs in corner to corner to DROPKICK! Bryan keeps going, another DROPKICK! And Bryan still keeps going, and he hits a third DROPKICK! Fans fire up but Parker is worried as Bryan watches Menard sit up. Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! Fans chant “YES!” with every one, but Parker saves Menard from the Buzzsaw! Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but Bryan WRECKS Menard with a dropkick! Bryan takes aim, but Parker saves Menard from the flying knee! Menard RAMS Bryan into railing, and then he hoists Bryan up to POST him in the groin! The ref reprimands again, Menard distracts him so that Parker can DDT Bryan to the floor!

Fans boo but Parker puts Bryan in and Menard hoists him up, POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Bryan survives the screw job, and here comes Claudio! Claudio chases Parker, Parker loses his jacket and a shoe as he flees! Parker flounders through the ring then back out, only for Claudio to CLOBBER him with a EuroUpper! Claudio then gut wrenches Parker to carry him away up the ramp! Fans fire up as things are truly 1v1 now! Menard realizes what happened to Parker, he turns around and swings but Bryan dodges! BUSAIKU KNEE! And then the omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Menard taps, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Blackpool Combat Club watches out for each other, and Bryan gets a win! Will this help Bryan climb up towards a title match? Will the BCC soon have Daniel Garcia and the ROH Pure title on their side?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Moxley VS Juice.

Tony Schiavone notes that Jon Moxley, having won the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, is now a THREE-TIME AEW World Champion, the most in history. And his interim championship reign made this year “The Summer of Moxley.” Can anyone dethrone him? Schiavone doesn’t think so. But the Bullet Club’s Booster asks, “What happened last time Jon Moxley was in the ring with Rock Hard Juice Robinson?” He of course means NJPW Capital Collision’s IWGP United States Championship Fatal 4 Way that Juice won to become the then champion. “I’ve hated this guy for ten YEARS!”

If Juice can beat Moxley in Philly, then he has a chance in Washington D.C. to face Moxley for the AEW World Championship. If Juice can do it once, can he do it again? Or will Moxley cross him off the list?

 

MJF is- Wait, Wheeler Yuta is here!

The Decoder storms out after watching the recap package of his encounter with MJF, and now he gets the mic! “M J F! MJF, we have a real serious problem, man. And it’s not what you think. It’s not that you’ve got this whole new army of lackeys, I could’ve seen that one coming from a few miles away. No, man, it’s not that you just tried to cheap shot me with the Dynamite Diamond Ring, because I’ve been hit a lot harder by a lot better men. Max, it’s the fact that you had the audacity to put your hands on Tony Schiavone, a man who has done more for AEW than you ever will! And Maxwell, Maxwell, I think actions should have consequences.

“And what better punishment than for you to walk down here and fight me in MY city!” Philly cheers, but Yuta then tells them sorry, don’t get too excited. We all know that Max just likes to run and hide. He liked to hide behind The Inner Circle, behind The Pinnacle, and now he’s hiding behind The Firm. He likes to hide behind that fake tan, his suits, and this very microphone. Because Max knows that once the bell rings, he can’t hang with Yuta! “So Max, if you wanna address these wonderful people in Philly, I’ll go ahead and do it for ya.

“Alright, uh, what do we got here? Charisma of drying paint, pet rock, I don’t think the Phillies have made the playoffs in like 11 years. He probably doesn’t even know that. I don’t know. But yeah, alright, what else? Can we skip to the part where we fight? Where you come down here and you take the ass kicking you deserve?!” Yuta’s fired up and here comes MJF! MJF has his music cut, and he’s wearing a Mets jersey, of course. Everyone give it up for the hometown boy, Yuta! “Philly: the place where you live if you can’t afford to live in New York!” Fans boo as MJF smiles.

But speaking of embarrassing, hi, Schiavone! How’s that body holding up after last week, “ya fat old pr*ck?” But MJF knows Schiavone won’t do anything because he’s “a lowdown coward, just like everybody in this Podunk arena! Except for you, Wheeler, I’ll give you credit, you’re not coward. We practically grew up in this sport together. I have been wrestling you up and down North America when we were on the independent circuit just trying to make a name for ourselves. And I’m not afraid to admit, you’re one of the best wrestlers in the world.

However, you made a big mistake when you decided to go toe-to-toe on the mic with Daddy last week. And Daddy had to put you on timeout, didn’t he? Daddy had to spank you some.” MJF tells Philly to shut up while he’s got the mic. MJF finds it interesting that Yuta claims MJF doesn’t care about AEW, yet here Yuta is, taking up a lot of TV time from the biggest draw in AEW! And to make matters worse, Yuta is talking into a mic! Yuta, the… Fans tell MJF to STFU but MJF keeps going. Yuta has about as much charisma as Joe Frazier does present day. By the way, Frazier is dead! And speaking of dead, the Phillies are dead in the water and are never gonna win the World Series ever again!

Yuta’s amused that MJF actually went after the Phillies. MJF says whoops, there’s that local sports team talk. It’s almost like MJF doesn’t give an F! It’s almost like at 26 years of age, MJF doesn’t have to care, because he makes more money than everyone in this bum town! More than the people watching at home! MJF is a multi-millionaire at just 26! Yuta cuts MJF off here. Let’s make one thing very clear: Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s money; he doesn’t care about MJF’s Mets jersey; Yuta doesn’t care about MJF’s scarf! If MJF doesn’t wanna fight Yuta in the ring, then Yuta will leave MJF in a pool of blood on Broad Street!! Fans cheer for that one!

MJF wants Yuta to cool off but Yuta says MJF may not know this, “but bad things happen in Philadelphia. And tonight is no exception.” Yuta rushes up the ramp but MJF gets his back-up in the Gunn Sons! Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” of The Firm, but Yuta dares them all to fight! MJF doesn’t do brawls, but if Yuta wants to wrestle, they can do that. If Yuta wants that, if the fans want that, then NO! HAHAHAHA! MJF will see Yuta in the ring next week in “Dumpy D.C.” But until then, remember this: He is… Oh, wait, the fans don’t deserve his catchphrase.

MJF will go to the skybox, watch Moxley be a horrible wrestler, and maybe cash his chip in on the Blackpool Cuckold Club. Until then, sayonara. Austin, you tell the people his catchphrase. MJF leaves as Austin takes the mic. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” some more, but Austin says “MJF is better than you… And you know it!” The Scum of the Earth is waiting for the Dynamite Anniversary to fight Yuta, but will he not wait to cash in his chips?

 

AEW hears from Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, and Darby Allin.

Sonjay “congratulates” Darby Allin on one hell of a win alongside Sting. But it seems Darby still has something to prove. He is sorely mistaken if he thinks he’s gonna do that against Sonjay’s best friend, Jay Lethal. Lethal says Darby will be outclassed. Darby likes to take a lot of pain, but we’ll see how much he likes walking around after Lethal breaks one of his legs with a Figure Four! Darby says everyone wants to be a champion, but how they get there can be oh so different. Darby is going to remind himself of what he is capable of when he takes on Lethal 1v1 with no Sonjay or Satnam ringside.

Lethal says Darby has something to prove, but so does Lethal! Lethal accepts the challenge and wants to beat Darby on his own. No Sonjay, no Satnam, no Sting, who will win between the Lethal and the Relentless?

 

AEW World Title Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Juice Robinson!

As we already heard, The Maniac is the most prolific AEW World Champion, but he still owes “Rock Hard” Robinson from Capital Collision. Will Moxley unload on Juice to move on to the next challenger? Or will Juice force Moxley into another showdown in DC?

As Moxley makes it to ringside from his bleacher side entrance, Juice CLOBBERS him! Moxley hits railing, Juice stomps away, the ref reprimands and fans boo. Juice drags Moxley up to whip him hard into railing! Juice tells the ref this ain’t his first match, and he drags Moxley up to HEADBUTT him! Moxley staggers, Juice HEADBUTTS Moxley again, and then follows him around the way. Juice puts Moxley in the ring, the bell rings, and Juice soaks up the heat with Too Sweets. Juice gets in the ring but Moxley clotheslines him up and out! Moxley throws off his shirt and storms out after Juice to whip him into railing now!

Fans fire up and the ring count climbs. Moxley drags Juice up, and snap suplexes Juice to the floor! Moxley refreshes the ring count to drag Juice up, but as MJF said, he’s in the skybox. MJF gives a thumbs down since Moxley’s in control, and Moxley THROWS Juice onto the timekeeper’s table! Juice and the table fall over, the ring count climbs again, and Moxley drags Juice up and into the ring. Juice throws hands but Moxley just gets in his face. Fans fire up, Juice throws another forearm but Moxley ROCKS Juice back! Juice throws another forearm, Moxley throws another, repeat! Fans rally as they go back and forth faster and faster!

Juice JABS and JABS and JABS, then powers up, but Moxley kicks low! Moxley fires off boxing elbows, EuroUppers, then runs, but Juice chokes and BITES Moxley! The ref reprimands, Juice lets off and Moxley goes to a corner. Juice runs in to clothesline! Moxley sits down, Juice calls his shot and he runs corner to corner, CANNON- NO, LARIAT! Moxley drags Juice back up, hooks the arms, but Juice tackles Moxley out of the ring! Moxley gets up to his feet first and goes to the railing. Moxley sits down to rest, but Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice hurries into the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ring count is climbing but Moxley flounders around. The count is 7 of 10, then 8! Moxley slides in at 9! Juice is right on Moxley and he TOSSES Moxley back out! Juice then goes out after Moxley and drags him up to TOSS into the timekeeper’s area! Juice returns the favor, as he tells the ref, and then Juice gets in the ring. Juice goes back out, and Moxley’s busted open! Moxley sputters but Juice grabs him first to POST him! Juice gets in the ring to flex and soak up the heat. Moxley gets up and in but Juice looms over him. Juice sits Moxley up so he can BITE the wound!! Juice lets off as the ref counts, but he tastes Moxley’s blood!

Moxley is mad now, and he storms up to Juice. Juice ROCKS Moxley, Moxley CHOPS Juice! Juice CHOPS Moxley and Moxley falls out of the ring! Juice taunts Moxley as he staggers about. Juice goes out, MJF is talking trash to fans now, and Juice AX HANDLES Moxley down! Juice rains down fists on the bloody forehead and BITES it again! Juice lets off, wipes away Moxley’s blood, and soaks up more heat. Juice drags Moxley up to snap suplex him to the floor! Juice gets in the ring, Moxley drags himself up, but Juice is there to DECK him! Moxley goes back to the floor, and Juice AX HANDLES him down again!

Moxley ends up taking a seat in the chair, and Juice HEADBUTTS away on him! Dynamite returns to single picture, Juice lets off to go to the apron and soak up more heat. Juice CANNONBALLS but Moxley moves! Juice only gets chair!! Even MJF is wincing from that one. Moxley gets back in the ring but Juice crawls over. Fans rally for Moxley as he drags himself up. Moxley builds speed and he DIVES! Direct hit and Juice hits railing! Moxley puts Juice in the ring, Juice goes to a corner. Moxley takes aim, runs in, but Juice BOOTS him! Juice runs in, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! They go again, DOUBLE LARIATS collide even harder!

Juice roars and Moxley snarls, CUTTER OUTTA NOWHERE! Cover, TWO!! Juice survives but Moxley has the ANKLE LOCK! Moxley leans on the hold but Juice endures and moves around. Juice gets the ROPEBREAK before Moxley can step through for the STF! Moxley lets off and has Juice in a corner. Moxley rains down fists, but Juice digs fingers into the eye and forehead wound! Juice then hits a RUNNING POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Juice is frustrated but he goes to the corner. Juice climbs up top, fans rally up, and Moxley stands up. Juice jumps, into a kick! But Juice fights the underhooks to POST Moxley!

Juice then drags Moxley out, chicken wings, PULP FRICTION!! Cover, TWO!!! Moxley survives and Juice can’t believe it! Fans fire up while Juice argues with the ref. Juice calms down, he calls his shot, and he torture racks Moxley! Juice spins around, but Moxley slips out of the Rockslide to hit a REGAL KNEE!! Cover, TWO!?! But Moxley has the knuckle locks for DRAGON STOMPS! Fans fire up and Moxley clamps on an ARMBAR! Juice taps, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (denies Juice Robinson a title match)

MJF is upset, Juice didn’t do enough damage for his liking. But Moxley denies Juice a DC title match, will MJF decide to change targets? Wait! Here comes Hangman Page! The Cowboy has his golden ticket for Cincinnati, and he goes right into the ring. Fans fire up for this stare down, and the two look ready to square off! But then MJF has a mic in his skybox to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Ladies, settle down, settle down, settle down. Don’t you realize you’re not fighting each other? You’re not fighting each other, man. What you’re doing is fighting to lose. Cuz once you two morons get to Cincinnati, I just might cash my chip in and become the NEW AEW World Champion!

“Because I am a generational… talent!” But Yuta finds MJF! Fans fire up and MJF is confused. Yuta turns MJF around to fire off haymakers! And then he THRWOS MJF into the couch! Yuta fires off, he drags MJF up and he throws him into the bleachers! Security rushes in but Yuta fights them off! Yuta goes after MJF again and fans fire up, but security drags Yuta away! MJF has been saved for tonight, will MJF definitely reconsider what he’s doing in DC?

 

Saraya is here!

And just as Justin Roberts made sure to say, “SA-RAY-YA” is All Elite! Fans fire up to see the #Glampire go to the ring and get the mic. “Whew. I’ve got chills right now, you guys. Ahem. I’m baaaack~!” Fans chant, “Welcome Back!” and Saraya asks, “So you missed me? It feels fantastic to be back in the ring, you guys. It’s obviously been a crazy road. I’m damaged, but I’m not broken, at the end of the day.” Fans cheer that! Saraya says it’s great to be back, and it is great to be here in AEW, because she is going to create change in the division. She was the revolution before, and she’ll be the revolution here, because she IS the revolution!

Fans chant, “This is Your House!” and Saraya smiles. “It’s really hard to talk out here, guys, I’m so nervous. It’s been awhile. But AEW is officially my house.” The crew can give her time cues all they want, but she’ll leave when she’s ready. Let’s take up more time with ALL the ladies of AEW! And starting that off is Interim AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm! She leads Athena, Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Willow Nightingale, and they all go to the ring together to stand with Saraya. Saraya wants the fans to make some noise and they do. “When I said we’re gonna make a change, I promise you, we’re gonna make a change.”

Saraya wants to reintroduce us to these ladies. And she’ll start with the champ, Toni Storm. Fans cheer as Saraya says Toni is finally being utilized to her full potential. She is a fighting champion, the best champion AEW has seen! And Saraya is honored to be in the ring with Toni. But “Well, well, well.” Britt Baker leads Rebel, Jamie Hayter & Penelope Ford out. “Look what we have here, guys. Another shiny new toy. And we’ve seen them come, we’ve certainly seen them go. But until you actually earn some respect around here, all you are is a catchphrase. Unlike myself, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.”

Britt isn’t sure Saraya watches AEW, but Britt is the Face of the Women’s Division, and she’s literally put her blood, sweat and tears into this company. In fact, Britt even put her neck on the line for AEW. And unlike Saraya’s, Britt’s neck can handle it. Britt says Saraya made such a big impact, but half of the people in this room can’t even say her name. “Sa-Ray-Ya? Sa-Rye-Ya? Psoriasis?” Saraya tells Britt to stop right there. It is cute that Britt of all people are trying to make fun of Saraya’s name. “Well, doctor, your name rhymes with sh*t.” Hayter and Rebel try to tell Britt that’s not true, but then the fans chant it at her!

Britt tells Toni Storm that she respects her. She doesn’t like her, but Britt does respect her. Britt had such high hopes for Toni when she first got here, but she couldn’t keep herself away from all the problematic people in wrestling. They’re always in Toni’s corner. In fact, last week, they all knew the title was Britt’s, so Toni and her new tag partner, Athena, broke her nose to take her out! And yet again, conspiracy! But that’s not why they’re here tonight. They’re here because Toni has quite the match on her hands tonight. Serena Deeb is one of the most cold-blooded and calculating wrestlers on the planet.

Fans are chanting more for Hayter than Britt, but Britt says Toni is lucky she isn’t facing Hayter! Hayter gets her shot after Deeb. One misstep from Toni against The Professor, and they’ll be hearing the words, “AND NEW…” Britt calls for Serena, and Serena heads out! Britt wants the others to get out, their five minutes of fame are up. But Saraya has the music stop a moment. Saraya admits she hasn’t been around AEW that long, but she does have eyes and ears. She knows Britt’s crew likes to “get up to some funky stuff.” So how about this? Since she talked to Tony Khan–by the way, it’s so great to have a boss that finally listens to her!

But it was decided that they’ll make this match a Lumberjack match! The title is on the line, Toni has back-up just like Deeb does, and Saraya says it’s time to get this show on the road! Will the Wolf sink her teeth into the title to Britt’s delight? Or will it still be #ToniTime in Philly?

Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Lumberjack Match: Toni Storm VS Serena Deeb!

The bell rings, Saraya joins commentary, and fans rally for Toni. Toni and Deeb tie up, Deeb goes after an arm and wrenches to a wristlock. Toni reaches back, headlocks, but Deeb pries free to a hammerlock. Deeb wrangles Toni to the mat but Toni reaches back again. Toni rolls, hammerlocks and then gets Deeb’s other arm! Toni shows she’s got technical prowess as she flips Deeb to a cover, ONE! Toni facelocks but Deeb fights up. Deeb wrenches out, wrenches again, then headlocks. Toni endures the grind, even as Deeb thrashes. Toni powers out, Deeb RAMS shoulders but Toni comes back to run Deeb over!

Deeb bails out, but Madison and Willow put her in! Toni BOOTS Deeb down! Deeb goes to a corner, Toni CHOPS away on her! Deeb turns it around to CHOP back! And MACHINE GUN CHOP! Toni stops it short to fire off forearms! Toni reels Deeb in to hoist her up top! Toni then climbs up behind and stands Deeb up. Fans fire up but Deeb resists. Toni SUPER BACK- CROSSBODY from Deeb! Cover, TWO! Deeb hurries to get Toni up and she throws her out to the other side. Britt, Hayter and Rebel stomp away! But Athena leads the charge and they back everyone off of Storm. Saraya likes seeing this “good trouble” as AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref has the Lumberjacks all stand down, and Storm gets up to get in the ring. Deeb is right on her with EuroUppers! Deeb short arm LARIATS Toni down, covers, TWO! Deeb is frustrated but she stomps away on Storm. Storm kicks back, Deeb kicks her to the ropes and pie faces her around. Britt and Ford talk some trash as Deeb drags Toni up for TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Deeb soaks up the heat as she paces around Toni. Deeb stands on Storm’s face to scrape her sole off Storm’s face! Deeb clamps onto Storm to throw down crossface forearms! Deeb then drags Storm up to EuroUpper back down!

Britt cheers Deeb on as she cravats Storm and thrashes her around. Storm endures, Madison and the others rally, and Storm snapmares free! Deeb hurries back but swings into a backslide! TWO!! A close call but Deeb swings again, into a roll-up! TWO! Deeb hurries to clinch but Storm fires forearms! Storm fires more and more and more shots, then ROCKS Deeb! Deeb rebounds as Dynamite returns to single picture, and Storm LARIATS Deeb down! Deeb staggers, Storm whips but Deeb reverses, only for Storm to SHOTGUN! Storm hurries to a corner and climbs up, Deeb stands for the CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Deeb bails out and Athena is there to bring her up. Athena puts Deeb in for Storm, and Storm GERMAN SUPLEXES! Deeb flounders to a corner and fans cheer as Storm says kiss this! But Deeb ducks the hips to victory roll, TWO! Deeb hurries to get a leg, DRAGON- NO, Storm sits on the dragon screw, TWO! Deeb sunset flips, TWO! Deeb has a body scissor for the INVERTED MOTORCYCLE! Deeb sits deep on the hold and Saraya says this is what happens when Britt is out of the equation and the women can have time. Deeb rolls Storm around into a BUTTERFLY STRETCH! Storm endures, pushes to a cover, TWO!!

Deeb lets Storm free, Storm HEADBUTTS her back! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Storm drags Deeb up, fans fire up, and Storm runs, only for Hayter to trip her up! Hayter drags Storm out, Skye storms up on Hayter, but Hayter DECKS Skye! Willow shoves Hayter, she and Hayter start brawling! Fans fire up as these two run to the back! The rest of the Lumberjacks put Storm in, Deeb hits a headlock takeover and floats to a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Omoplata, and the half crab, SERENITY LOCK! Storm endures, claws forward, but Deeb sits down to really wrench the leg! Fans still rally, and Storm reaches out!

Britt holds the ropes back, but the ref reprimands. Athena CLOBBERS Ford and Rebel, then backs Britt down! Storm gets the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets Britt go, but she drags Storm around to reel her in. Deeb tucks the arms, but Storm back drops free! Fans fire up with Storm as she goes back up top! Britt barks at Storm but Storm CROSSBODIES! Deeb rolls through! HALF CRAB!! And it is deep as Storm endures all over again! Storm grits her teeth, turns over and pushes Deeb down. Storm kicks away and Deeb stumbles into a corner! SWEET HIP MUSIC! Storm drags Deeb up, reels her in, but Deeb jackknife counters! TWO!!

Storm hits STORM ZERO!! Cover, TWO!?!? Deeb survives being spiked and no one can believe it! Deeb and Storm rise up and fans are fire dup. Storm runs in, Deeb dodges to put the legs in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW!! Britt coaches Deeb up and Deeb climbs, but Storm stands up to HEADBUTT! Storm climbs up after Deeb, Deeb throws body shots, they brawl up top and Storm gets the edge. SUPER STORM ZERO!?!? Cover, Storm wins!!!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (still Interim AEW Women’s World Champion)

Saraya loves seeing it! The Lightning From Down Under strikes down Deeb, who will step up to her next?

 

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Tony Schiavone is with Billy Gunn and the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Max Caster says, “Yo, listen!” Anthony Bowens says, “Philadelphia, your AEW Tag Team Champions have arrived!” Billy says, “And right when you think that that can’t get any better, next week on Dynamite, it is National Scissoring Day!” Caster says bring your shirts, bring your signs, bring your big scissors, because they’ll do the chant all night long! Y’know why? Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And there’s more! This Friday night, your #ForeverChamps have an open contract to defend these titles!

And in walks Keith Lee. He applauds them. He wants to congratulate them properly, but as you can see, Swerve is not here this week. He is “exceptionally disgruntled.” Keith has been watching Swerve’s back, and he understands why Swerve is upset. Billy Gunn, you physically got involved and cost the Limitless House their titles. “You boys got carried. Good luck.” Keith heads out but Billy tells him to tell Swerve, “I’ve got two words for him: Scissor me~!” The Acclaimed is having a good time now, but will things turn around in a flash with that open challenge put out?

 

Backstage interview with the Andrade Family Office.

Or rather, Tony Schiavone is standing in the middle of an argument as The Butcher & The Blade yell at Private Party, and Private Party yells back, with Andrade El Idolo upset at them all. He has them all stop shouting! It’s enough! Listen here: Andrade is your boss, Private Party! Remember that! But Marq Quen says Private Party isn’t mad at Andrade, they’re mad at Butcher & Blade! The shouting starts again but Andrade has them all stop. Jose, you tell them. The Assistant explains that Private Party are the ones upsetting Andrade, Butcher & Blade. They may not like it, but Andrade is still their boss. So either shape up, or ship out!

The others leave, and Schiavone talks with Private Party alone. He usually doesn’t take sides in this, but… Oh, Matt Hardy walks in. Hardy tells Isiah & Marq that he’s sorry they’ve ended up in this situation. But what happened last week in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal felt right! They’re connected! They always have been. Andrade is way worse for them than Big Money Matt ever was. So they should quit, get out of the deal, and Hardy will be waiting. And this time, he promises them both that they’ll do it right. Will Private Party terminate their deal with the AFO to get the #HardyParty started right?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

With that open contract out on the tag titles, it seems the AFO jumped on it with not just one but TWO teams! Private Party AND The Butcher & The Blade are challenging The Acclaimed in a TRIPLE THREAT! Will Caster & Bowens survive the biggest first defense possible?

Plus, after their confrontation during the Lumberjack match, Willow Nightingale and Jamie Hayter will go 1v1! Then, as he fights his way towards Daniel Garcia’s ROH Pure Championship, Lee Moriarty takes on a returning Fuego Del Sol! And after his big win alongside Action Bronson for the Grand Slam, HOOK is back in action! Who will step to the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil next?

 

Ricky Starks VS Eli Isom!

The Absolute avenged his loss at All Out against “Powerhouse” Hobbs, but it took Lights Out to do it! Will Starks start getting that spotlight shining back on him here tonight?

The bell rings, Starks and Isom tie up, and Starks headlocks. Starks grinds the hold, but Isom wrenches free and headlocks back. Starks powers out the back and hammerlocks, but Isom elbows free! Isom run sin and forearm smashes in the corner! Isom whips corner to corner but Starks goes up and over. Things speed up, Starks barrels through Isom’s shoulder tackle to then SPEAR him down! Fans fire up with Starks and he drags Isom up, for ROSHAMBEAUX! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

That was easy work for Starks, and he is absolutely back in the swing of things! Is this the start of a new chapter in the Book of Starks?

 

AEW looks closer at the drama filled feud of Jungle Boy, Christian Cage & Luchasaurus.

AEW shares footage from after Rampage: Grand Slam. Jack Perry was obviously pissed that after one of the hardest fought matches in his career, and one of the biggest victories in his entire life, Captain Charisma and his personal kaiju attacked. One of JB’s proudest achievements, he gets screwed over again by the two people he used to care about the most in AEW. But they can do whatever they want, he will get them both. Where JB used to hang their AEW World Tag titles on the wall, he will hang both their heads! Will Jungle Boy hunt down the wrestling dinosaur and his new master?

 

ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Bandido!

The Wizard, Le Champion, the Lionheart, is very proud of himself for becoming an EIGHT-TIME World Champion in his career. But because he is (supposedly) the most honorable man in AEW, he is willing to be a fighting champion. Will #THEOCHO barely last seven days? Or will The Most Wanted, one of the greatest luchadors in the world today, still be a former ROH World Champion?

Bobby Cruise makes the introductions, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly the best ROH champion ever!

Fans rally for Bandido at the bell, and Jericho offers the handshake. Bandido takes it to uphold the Code of Honor, and then Jericho turns it into some kind of secret handshake he’s coming up with on the spot. Then he flips Bandido off! Bandido DECKS Jericho for that! Jericho gets up but Bandido throws more hands. Bandido whips, Jericho reverses and then CLOBBERS Bandido! Jericho kicks Bandido around, drags him up and CHOPS him to a corner. Jericho CHOPS Bandido again, CHOPS him against ropes, and fans bring back the chant of “WE WANT PIZZA!” Jericho whips Bandido but Bandido handsprings through!

Jericho avoids the contact and rushes in, but Bandido uses that to throw Jericho up and out! Bandido then builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Jericho hits railing! Bandido resets, builds speed and FOSBURY FLOPS! Direct hit on Jericho and fans fire up! Bandido ROCKS Jericho, puts him in the ring, and he high-fives fans as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bandido hurries up the corner and he SKY TWISTERS to take Jericho down! Cover, TWO! Jericho hurries out of the ring and Bandido wonders what’s up.

LOW BLOW to Bobby Cruise!! AND A JUDAS EFFECT!! Jericho’s reign of terror over ROH begins tonight, but will the American Dragon be able to end it in two weeks?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite to keep things going from last week’s awesome Grand Slam events, as well as set up the anniversary and following events. We got a great opening segment from the JAS, and those purple suits honestly looked really good. Poor Luigi Primo, though. I don’t know if the bucket hat is supposed to mean something, but it does work as a disappointing gift for such a big night. Garcia of course pushes forward towards defecting from the JAS, and Bryan joining in was a good touch. Great match from Bryan VS Menard tonight, and Bryan & Garcia VS Jericho & Sammy is going to be awesome, and it will factor in greatly to the tiebreaker of Bryan VS Jericho.

Jericho VS Bandido was an amazing main event, but I had a feeling Jericho would win. Jericho wants to take on every former ROH World Champion but sets up the tiebreaker, I have a feeling he’s doomed his reign to only last until October 12th. At the same time, there could be any number of “sports entertainment” overbooking shenanigans going on that help Jericho retain. Jericho stating his mission, I would love to see him continue on to then face all those former world champions, such as Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Jay Lethal. Lethal is going to have a great match with Darby, but I feel like Darby is going to win that since it was promised to be truly 1v1.

Great stuff from the rest of the Blackpool Combat Club, such as Yuta confronting MJF and scaring him off to Moxley VS Juice in a great match. I had a feeling Moxley would win so that he can focus on Hangman Page in Cincinnati next. MJF will find a way past Yuta next week, and then he’ll be lurking in Cincinnati, that has to be the cash-in spot. Very good promo from JB to further the story with Christian Cage & Luchasaurus. JB will probably be the one to attack next as retaliation. JB VS Luchasaurus can happen for Full Gear, and Christian’s arm needing time to heal, there’s a chance this story goes all the way to the holidays in December.

Great promo from The Acclaimed and Keith Lee, and a great promo from AFO and Matt Hardy. That Triple Threat for the tag titles is going to be great, but Acclaimed will retain by using the dysfunctional AFO against itself. Then Hardy will support Private Party against Andrade, we can get a great Six Man Tag out of it. Starks of course wins that squash match, that match almost didn’t need to happen here but hey, Starks is still a fan favorite.

And while it was great to hear from Saraya again, something was just a bit awkward about the full women’s segment. Saraya and Britt got at each other pretty well, but did Saraya really need to make a jab at WWE? Especially after the changing of the guard over there and how things have already turned around for the better? Is Tony Khan gonna be petty about the WWE forever? I did appreciate that Saraya is already poised as a supervisor of the women’s division since she got to make the stipulation of the Lumberjack match. And that match was awesome stuff with some good stories set up, such as that match for Hayter VS Willow on Rampage.

Storm retaining makes sense and WOW that second rope piledriver. With Britt worrying about her nose, I am sure Hayter beats Willow and then Hayter really does get the next turn. Storm VS Hayter will be great, and maybe other Heels get to step up. But again, the one thing we need to start seeing is two women’s matches on Dynamite or this is all lip service like WWE gave us years ago with The Authority pinning the bad ratings and ideas on “Constable Corbin.” Quality like this is a great start, but we still need quantity, too.

My Score: 8.8/10

QUICK NOTES

Solid line up, and it is great to see Fuego Del Sol back in action. He had that scary situation months ago about the hole in his neck, so he’s clearly made a great recovery. I’m sure he’ll get a great win tonight, but I’m wondering where he’ll go in AEW now that he’s back.
